How A Bill Becomes A Law: Trumpcare Edition


JAMES KUNSTLER: The Technicolor Swan

http://kunstler.com/clusterfuck-nation/the-technicolor-swan/

 ...We’ve entered a realm that is populated by nothing but demons — of our own design, by the way.

Our politics have become so thoroughly demonic, that the sort of exorcism America needs now can only come from outside politics. It’s coming, too. It’s on its way. It will turn our economic situation upside down and inside out. It’s a Technicolor swan, and you can see it coming from a thousand miles out. Wait for it. Wait for it.

No Chemical Weapons Attack Was Coming

https://www.lewrockwell.com/lrc-blog/no-chemical-weapons-attack-coming/

 It is a fact that politicians are able to build support and gain scope for their nefarious deeds by establishing a foundation of lies. This is a strong argument for severely limiting their powers and monitoring their every move. The extant adulation of big government and its programs does the opposite.

The SCO Just Became the World's Largest Political Organization

http://russia-insider.com/en/politics/sco-just-became-worlds-largest-political-organization/ri20170

 A tectonic geopolitical shift happened in Astana, Kazakhstan, only a few days ago, and yet barely a ripple registered in Atlanticist circles


...the SCO not only qualifies as the largest political organization – by area and population – in the world; it also unites four nuclear powers.

(snip)
As the vast bulk of Western peoples are securely locked in The Matrix and are incapable of independent thought, the use of social media by the forces of evil can protect the lies that are leading the world to destruction. At this point in time, it is unclear whether the Internet will be a communication channel for truth or another weapon by which governments and the private interests that control governments impose The Matrix.

We will see what happens with this website. If support continues to decline, we will know we have lost the war. I am brave, but I am not a fool. If people can’t hear, there is no point in writing.

"It's A Virtual Bloodbath" - Cryptocurrency Carnage Continues

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-06-25/its-virtual-bloodbath-cryptocurrency-carnage-continues

 Early this morning (6/25/17), crypto currencies were all simultaneously hit by selling pressure and as the day has worn off, it has accelerated with one witty trader noting "it's a virtual bloodbath." 29 of the Top 30 crypto currencies (by market cap) are in the red and while there remains no immediate catalyst, chatter is focused on uncertainty surrounding SegWit (another potential fork in the codebase) and some looming large ICOs.

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47310.htm

The World Is Going Down With Trump

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/06/23/world-going-trump/


As David Stockman writes, Trump “is up against a Deep State/Dem/Neocon/mainstream media prosecution” and “has no chance of survival short of an aggressive offensive” against those working to destroy him. But there is no Trump offensive, “because the man is clueless about what he is doing in the White House and is being advised by a cacophonous coterie of amateurs and nincompoops. So he has no action plan except to impulsively reach for his Twitter account.”

Our president twitters while he and Earth itself are pushed toward destruction.

RIP DILLINGER: 2001-2017


Dillinger was one of two Maine Coons, brothers, that I acquired in 2001 at two months old. His brother is named Baby Face and is doing well.

Dillinger had a chunk of his intestine removed due to blockage in 2007 when he almost died. He had ten more good years until recently this year when he began to lose weight dramatically and was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. I nursed him for the last three months but he went down hill in the last two days and, rather than see him suffer, I had to euthanize him. He went peacefully.

I will miss him terribly as I have the other four cats I have had since I turned 50 in 1994 that met their demise in various ways in years past. Gun Smoke, Miss Kitty, Black Cat and Tuffy were all very special cats in their own ways that unfortunately met their early demise in several unpleasant ways...dogs, people, coyotes and disease.

Dillinger and his brother Baby Face are the two cats that have managed to live the longest as cats seem to meet their demise quite frequently after not too many years of life due to dogs, humans and various illnesses and injuries. It grieves me that their life spans, even when many years long, are far too short relative to ours so we have to suffer losing them before we are ready to lose them.

I have had many pets over my life: a dog, birds, and finally cats. Cats have been enormously comforting to me during many difficult times in my life and now I simply don't want to live without them. I still have Baby Face and may acquire an older cat if something happens to him. Until then, it will just be me and Baby Face who is now 16 years old and not showing his age much at all.

The biggest problem with having pets when you are an older person nearing the end of your life is not wanting to live your last days without your pets, but also not wanting to die and having to leave your pets in the care of other people who may not love them like you do, especially if the pets are  'one person' cats who would take some time to warm up to strangers.

Such is the dilemma of loving pets.

I have had stronger relationships with my cats than I have ever had with humans who seem to always let me down. My cats never did.

All my love to Dillinger and my other pets who have passed on to pet heaven.

I really do hope to see them again after I leave this life.

King Salman of Saudi Arabia has ousted the crown prince and replaced him with his son, Mohammed bin Salman, 31, advancing his meteoric rise

Wednesday, June 21, 2017 1:21 AM EDT


King Salman of Saudi Arabia has removed the kingdom’s crown prince and named his 31-year-old son, Mohammed bin Salman, next in line to the Saudi throne.
The move marks a stark upheaval in the leadership of the wealthy kingdom, a key ally of the United States and the Arab world’s largest economy.
Prince Mohammed emerged from relative obscurity when his father ascended the throne in 2015, and he has since accumulated vast powers, serving as defense minister, overseeing the state oil company and launching a vast effort to reform the Saudi economy.
