And an update on our coverage of the Dakota Access pipeline and the resistance to it: Democracy Now! will be heading back to North Dakota to continue our coverage of the standoff at Standing Rock. As has been reported here and elsewhere, as a result of Democracy Now!’s reporting over Labor Day weekend last month, Amy Goodman was charged by the state of North Dakota with criminal trespass. A warrant was issued for her arrest on September 8—five days after we released video of the Dakota Access pipeline company’s security guards physically assaulting nonviolent, mostly Native American land protectors, pepper-spraying them and unleashing attack dogs, one of which was shown with blood dripping from its nose and mouth.
Protester: “These people are just threatening all of us with these dogs. And she, that woman over there, she was charging, and it bit somebody right in the face.”
Amy Goodman: “The dog has blood in its nose and its mouth.”
Protester: “And she’s still standing here threatening us.”
Amy Goodman: “Why are you letting their—her dog go after the protesters? It’s covered in blood!”
Goodman will be turning herself in to authorities at the Morton County jail in North Dakota on Monday morning at 8 a.m. North Dakota time and intends to vigorously fight this charge as she sees it as a direct attack on the First Amendment, freedom of the press? and the public’s right to know. More information is available at democracynow.org. Continue reading
GLOBAL WARMING Exacerbates Earth’s Weather & Turns ‘Not Even A Tropical Depression’ Into A Category 5 HURRICANE MATTHEW Because Of Deep Warm Waters In The Caribbean! Media Weathermen Discuss Hurricane Matthew, But Persist In Blackout Of ‘CLIMATE CHANGE LINK’ TO MATTHEW That Is Its Cause. Republican Political Pressure On Media Is Obviously The Source Of That Silence! Donald Trump & Mike Pence Are CLIMATE CHANGE DENIAL DREAM TEAM. Those ‘Lost Souls’, Who Believe Donald Trump Will Change Things In Their Favor, Have Only To Look At This Issue To Know They Are Being Deceived BIG TIME! Trump Will Only Serve Corporate Capitalism, Not We The People! But Undereducated People Are Reality Show ‘Feeling’ People, Who Do Not Analyze & Cannot Cogitate! This Is The Main ‘Achilles’ Heel’ Of Democracy – Democracy Will Never Work Well If The General Population Is Undereducated! Mainstream Republicans Cannot Understand Difference Between Real Sincerity & Political Promises. Saying It’s So Does NOT Make It So!

MICHAEL MANN: Thanks, Amy! You know, it’s unfortunate that some in the weather community are not providing that critical context for understanding this trend towards increasingly devastating tropical storms and hurricanes. Matthew is a very good example of a storm that was unique, unprecedented, in certain respects. It intensified far more quickly than any other storm that we’ve seen in modern history, basically going from not even a tropical depression to a near-hurricane-strength storm over the course of, you know, less than half a day, and then, the next day, of course, strengthening into a major hurricane, a Category 5 hurricane. It’s weakened a little bit, but now it’s restrengthening.
And where that intensification, where that rapid intensification occurred was in the region of the Caribbean that has the greatest heat content, not just that the ocean surface temperatures are warm, but there’s a very deep layer of warm water. And that’s important, because that helps sustain these storms as they churn up the ocean. The churning doesn’t bring cold water to the surface to weaken the storm, if there’s a deep layer of warmth. And that all has a climate change signature with it, not just the fact that the ocean surface temperatures in the Caribbean are at near-record levels, but the—just the sheer depth of that warm water is unprecedented. And as the surface warming penetrates into the ocean, we are seeing increases in ocean heat content. Last year was the warmest our oceans have ever been on record. And that’s critical context. It’s that warmth that provides the energy that intensifies these storms. And it isn’t a coincidence that we’ve seen the strongest hurricane in both hemispheres within the last year. Continue reading
PSYCHOBIOGRAPHY OF DONALD JOHN TRUMP! Fareed Zakaria Says Trump Is Nothing More Than A ‘BULLSHIT ARTIST’ (His Explicit Term, Not Tabacco’s). David Cay Johnston Has Been Studying, Researching & Writing About Donald Trump For Decades. He Just Published A New Tome On The Subject, “The Making Of Donald Trump”, Tying Trump To Russian Mafia & Drug Traffickers. Although He Never Mentions Him By Name, When You Stream Johnston’s Interview, You Cannot Disassociate Trump From That Other German Narcissist, Adolf Hitler! The Similarities Are Staggering! Trump Knows Nothing About Foreign Policy Or Government, But Even Less About Casino Gambling & Odds! Hunh? Nor Is Donald Interested In Learning! That’s Why The Don’s Politics Are Perpetually AD HOMINEM Because He Cannot Discuss Actual, Relevant Political ISSUES! Trump Is Actually Dumber & More Dangerous Than George W. Bush! Trump’s Tax Returns? You Wouldn’t Submit Yours Either If You Ran For President & Paid ZERO TAXES! Adolf Hitler Had A Better Resume!
Posted on August 15, 2016 by
Trump’s FOLOWERS have correctly identified Trump’s INTRACTABILITY. But there are 2-types of Intractability:
1- Intractable Honor &
2- Intractable Evil
Both types of Intractability are equally unchangeable and equally enduring because both belong to the same personality type.
Trump’s Followers have unwittingly mistaken Hitler’s INTRACTABLE EVIL for Teddy Roosevelt’s INTRACTABLE HONOR!
Any Fool can spot the Difference! But Trump’s Followers are a special brand of Fool!
Incidentally, Trump has been sued over 3,500 times by service people he neglected to pay, Donald doesn’t pay Taxes, Donald doesn’t know ANYTHING: about Ethics, Odds, Casinos, Politics, and he’s TOO LAZY TO LEARN!
BUT Donald Trump: A HELLUVA BULLSHIT ARTIST! Continue reading

TRUMP’S BIGGEST LIE: “I Will Make America Great Again!” Fareed Zakaria Exposes The Fact That America Leads The World – Including The Chinese – In Almost Every Economic & Financial Category Already. So Is Trump Just Dead Wrong Or Is Donald Just A Deliberate Liar, Who Will Say Anything To Become President?
Posted on June 5, 2016 by
DONALD TRUMP (R), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: This country is utterly a hellhole. We are going down fast.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
ZAKARIA: This notion of a country in decline is at the heart of Trump’s campaign and his message, which is of course to make America great again. But in fact it is increasingly clear that the United States has in recent years re-enforced its position as the world’s leading economic, technological, military and political power. The country dominates virtually all leading industries from social networks, to mobile telephony, to nano and biotechnology like never before. Continue reading
DONALD & HILLARY: A Marriage Of Convenience! Donald Doesn’t Care One Way Or The Other About Abortions. He Could Send Women Who Have Them To Jail Without A Minute’s Remorse Or He Could Ignore Their Complicity Altogether And Jail The Doctors – Whichever Tactic Gains Him The Most. And Hillary Doesn’t Give 2-Cents About The Middleclass. She’s A Politician With Personal Goals. Talk Is Cheap And Politicians Don’t Mind Spending It Lavishly. Flip-Flopping Is Their Only Telltale. Donald Flip-Flopped On Abortion & Hillary Flip-Flopped On TransPacific Partnership. That Proves Neither Has A Conscience Or Principles – Except The Money Principal That Is! – Editorial
Posted on April 10, 2016 by
The Ethics Negotiable ones are generally – but not always – Democrats. The Morally or Religiously Immovable ones are invariably Republicans. Donald Trump used to be a Democrat before he became a Republican. Both Hillary and Donald belong to the Ethics Negotiable Class of Politician. Neither is ‘wed’ to any moral or religious concept except for the moment when it suits their political advantage. Continue reading
“COMPLETE FANTASY”: Following the attacks in Lahore, leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump tweeted to his 7 million followers, “Another radical Islamic attack, this time in Pakistan, targeting Christian women & children. At least 67 dead, 400 injured. I alone can solve.” Tariq Ali, “What Can This Guy Do To Deal With The Problem In Pakistan? He Doesn’t Even Understand It!” On MSNBC Speaking To Chris Matthews, Trump On Women Who Receive Abortion, “They Must Be Punished!” Less Than 24-Hours Later, Trump’s Klan Releases Trump Statement Reversing That Stand Saying Abortion Doctors Should Be Punished, Not Women! TRUMPISMS – Shooting From The Hip & Flip-Flopping: That’s Why Trump Steers GOP Debates To Personal Attacks & Avoids Discussing Issues. GWB, Palin & Now Trump: Will The GOP ‘Dumb & Dumber’ Reality Show Never End!
Posted on March 30, 2016 by
TARIQ ALI: Complete fantasist, Amy. What can this guy do to deal with the problem in Pakistan? He doesn’t even understand it, if he speaks of only Christians being killed. That’s bad enough. Lots of Muslims, as you said earlier and as the country knows, more Muslims than Christians, have died. Why didn’t he mention that? Why, if he’s a serious politician, didn’t he say that these terrorist attacks do not only take place in Europe or North America, they actually target other Muslims in Muslim states regularly, and more people die there? It’s simply this one got more publicity because it came very soon after Brussels, so it made the front pages of The New York Times and various European papers. Had it happened six months later, it would have been inside-page news. But for Trump to be so completely ignorant of what’s going on is hardly a surprise. And this is just empty bravado. “I can deal with it.” What—how can you deal with it? By nuking the country? I mean, it’s just ridiculous! Continue reading
THE CUCKOO CLOCK! “Like the fella says, in Italy for 30-years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love. They had 500-years of democracy and peace. And what did that produce? The cuckoo clock! So long, Holly!“ – Orson Welles as Harry Lime in 1949’s ‘The Third Man’

What Shkreli did is despicable, but there’s an aspect to this that is being ignored. Some of Congress’ biggest donors are doing essentially the same thing.
Pharmaceutical companies are raising the prices of their drugs to astronomical levels — perhaps not as high as Shkreli, but for the same reason — and few in Congress seem as outraged by that as they are with Shkreli.
Hard to accept that these imbeciles represent the people in our government.

RIGHT-TO-WORK LAWS HAVE ONLY 2-PURPOSES:
1- REMOVE LABOR WORKERS’ NEGOTIATOR SO WORKERS HAVE TO NEGOTIATE FOR THEMSELVES
& ALL BY THEMSELVES INDIVIDUALLY!
2- WEAKEN DEMOCRATIC PARTY, WHOSE MAJOR CONTRIBUTORS ARE LABOR UNIONS!
That’s why Scott Walker, Minnesota Governor, & Comrades were laughing, applauding, joking & Thumbing Their Noses at Minnesotans when Walker signed the Bill!
MINNESOTANS JOIN 24 OTHER STATES WITH RIGHT-TO-WORK, WHO NOW HAVE ‘FREEDOM FROM REPRESENTATION’!
Who are the Cuckoos now in Minnesota and the other 24? Continue reading

TRUMP: We`re going to be looking at a lot of different things, and you know, a lot of people are saying that and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there.
