Macron, Ike Turner and the psychology of marrying your alleged rapist

by Ramin Mazaheri It seems as if America’s media spends far more time speculating about Donald’s Trump’s psychological issues than discussing anything which could actually help the average household be able to afford a new car, which a new study reveals the average family can no longer do.

North Korea: fire, fury and fear

by Pepe Escobar for the Asia Times Alarm bells ringing as rampant speculation breaks out over Pyongyang’s ‘possible’ miniaturized nuclear warheads. Beware the dogs of war. The same intel “folks” who brought to you babies pulled from incubators by “evil” Iraqis as well as non-existent WMDs are now peddling the notion that North Korea has produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead able to fit its recently tested ICBM. That’s the core

Jacksonville, Mayo Clinic, natural/traditional meds, etc. (collective reply)

Dear friends, WOW!  I did not expect such a deluge of email and, frankly, such a tsunami of advice.  So, first and foremost, THANK YOU to all of you for your kindness and concern!!

The Ron Paul Institute warns that HR 3364 contains provisions which directly threatens us all

by Daniel McAdams for the Ron Paul Institute Late this afternoon the US House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed HR 3364, the “Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act.” The vote was 419-3, with the only nays coming from Republicans Justin Amash (R-MI), John Duncan (R-TN), and Thomas Massie (R-KY). The bill adds additional sanctions on Russia as punishment for the as-yet-unproven claims that Moscow somehow interfered in US elections to help

The end of the “wars on the cheap” for the United States
