In Iran Right Now…


It’s indisputable that, in the context of the Iran nuclear “deal,” the Iranian régime played the Obama administration for a bunch of fools. It wasn’t difficult; the Obama administration was peopled mainly by idiots, led by its egomaniacal idiot-in-chief.

The Democrats face the very bleak possibility of a series of sensible, intelligent Supreme Court decisions for as far as their dim eyes and brains can see.

Climate change is happening… on Mars, on Jupiter, and, in fact, on every star, planet, minor planet, moon, quasar, black hole, neutron star, asteroid, white or brown dwarf, in every galaxy, in every galactic cluster, supercluster, mega-giga-jiga- supercluster (I made that last one up) in the universe.

C|Net (News) Headline: “Facebook ‘war room’ scrambles to combat fake election news”


Such a naive notion! Facebook doesn’t want to COMBAT fake election news, they want to CONTROL it. They want to be able to put out their OWN fake news, while preventing other sources of information from getting out there that might dispute what Facebook would allow to be said over their social medium. That’s all.     Continue reading C|Net (News) Headline: “Facebook ‘war room’ scrambles to combat fake election news”
