Since the mass media (and therefore public opinion) is swamped with the Russia Russia Russia propaganda, here's a quick synopsis of all the *facts* you sadly can't find on our American television or "news" outlets:
Here's what we're dealing with regarding the United States of America national political system of government.
Hi all it's a Sunday and I didn't want to put this in an Open Thread.
This guy hit's it right on the head and is way funny doing it.
Gotta love the Brits.
This is skimpy as an essay...but it's funny.
Jill Stein gets it. Unfortunately, she had to learn the hard way.
Seven months after the election, the attacks on her presidential bid have continued.
Caitlin Johnstone points out that partisan Democrats still can't stand the idea that someone on the left ran for president and got some votes.
I've been waiting to see how much progress the various groups attempting to reform the Dems - Our Revolution, Justice Dems, Brand New Congress - would make before finally throwing the towel in. For the simple reason that if the Dems could be taken over by the voters then our path to overall victory would be much easier. If.
Truth is stranger than fiction
It's been a big news week with the loudest scream being Comey, Comey, Comey, Russia, Russia....it keeps the people distracted. In the Middle East the big scream has been Qatar...better get rid of Al Jazeera as the Saudis start a war with Iran. In the meantime, the house votes to do away with the Dodd-Frank luke warm financial regulation.

In the UK Labour made good election gains and the Conservatives are in a mess prior to the Brexit negotiations.
This is part 3 of the Seth Rich murder story. Between the last essay and this have come a verbal-pictorial avalanche of new information.

From what I know right now, there will have to be at least one more essay of Seth Rich before moving on to the Awan Spyring story, which is epic in its own right.
In the wake of the huge success of Jeremy Corbyn, the neoliberals on Twitter have been having a meltdown. In response to their complaints, many Berniecrats started posting responses with the hashtag #BernieWouldHaveWon. Joan Walsh seemed particularly annoyed by this meme which only inspired more responses with the Bernie hashtag. For some reason, I cannot find her tweets. Maybe she deleted them.
There are a number of reason why Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party in England did so well in the recent UK election, compared to Bernie Sanders failed attempt to win the Democratic Primary, but today I want to focus on just one. In the UK electronic voting machines are not in place. They use paper ballots. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that many UK pols are pushing for e-voting machines for the next election.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has called a special session, largely so he can push once again for the removal of transgender people from from participation in human society (i.e. Senate Bill 6).
Those dudes in the white sheets in Saudi Arabia, the ones ruling that country pretending to be king and princes and all that utter nonsense, are really pissing me off.
