“The president retweeted assertions that Romney “stabbed Trump in the back” by joining Democrats in attempts to overturn the 2016 election, and that the Utah senator was connected to unsubstantiated claims that Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, was corruptly involved with the Burisma Holdings energy company in Ukraine.”Feb. 9, 2020
“…Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, was corruptly involved with the Burisma Holdings energy company in Ukraine.”
“…In defending Trump from accusations that he improperly pressured Ukraine to open investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Republicans have sought to shift the focus onto their claim that Biden conducted foreign policy in order to benefit his son’s business interests in Ukraine, for which there is no evidence.” USA Today; Feb. 5, 2020
Fear may petrify the will to act: checkmate, perceived in a causal string of acts leading to a hypothetical futility.
“petrify” turn to stone, paralyze
After the “pro democracy” movement in the Middle East they’re still talking about “pro democracy” today in Hong Kong: the coup is consolidating.
“Since about 200BC Europe, and perhaps the world, had been basking in a climate rather warmer than ours today. Crop yields had been high, and crops such as grapes and olives had been able to grow farther north than they can today.” CEAWALIN the man who created England, R. Mathews 2012; p. 27
Every time I see a header in the Drudge report I check to see who’s sponsoring it. I ignore everything from The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Fox News, CNN and Breibart.Though some may get me hooked by their header before I think of checking their media sponsor.
I also avoid most UK sponsored writings especially reports about US politics and NASA.
I am also beginning to see political parties as distractors of attention that should be directed at a nation’s problems and not party problems. Canada has had problems determining the application of the law to a job providing corporation with a recently removed attorney general of Canada accusing her party leader of directing her to choose politics over law. Following her testimony 33 cabinet members gave their party and Prime Minister their pledge of support.
And today I saw a header that House speaker Pelosi wanted to lower the voting age to get voters when they are young either as politically active or simply as voters who’d support the speakers own party.
I keep hearing that people lose jobs because of advances in technology: shiny metal robots are replacing working class muscle and female allure. Change is everywhere so rapid that humans can’t keep up and pretty girls fall to the wayside; North American auto makers like GM lose market share to makers from Japan and Korea. Piano builders move to China in a big factory where other people make all North America’s big name grands, like Canada’s Heinztman , that you still can buy here if you wait for it to be shipped to BC from where it’s manufactured in China.
And where is that steel made that the US wants to tariff since Canada and the US closed their mills decades ago?
And everyone knows where the US’ Apple, at one time the largest capitalised company in America, makes its products.
And has anyone ever seen those electronic products we used to think they made only here like televisions and stereo equipment. All those jobs were shipped to Asia before a lot of people were born.
