What does he NOT have to gain financially and otherwise? He's got one of the most powerful offices in the world to leverage for his own gains. He and his family are busily cutting deals to enrich the "Trump Organization" even while pretending to be public servants, as numerous investigative reporters and even lawsuits have revealed. And of course there is the sheer ego boost of wielding

"Interesting!" ??? If this is true, it's scary as hell. Conflict is one thing. Yes, it seems/seemed pretty much inevitable that we are/were headed for a degree of limited conflict with China. But that doesn't have to be full war. The "Cold War" in Europe saw a bit of shooting now and then, but didn't go full bore. Skirmishing over islands in the South China Sea, possibly fi

As if the PRC were not up to enough already, what with crushing Tibet, moving towards crushing Hong Kong, and threatening Taiwan, they are also continuing some brutal policies in Xinjiang.

The four major castes, the varnas, date to Vedic times. (Brahmin/Priests, Kshatriya/Warriors, Vaishya/Workers, and Shudra/Slaves) They are mentioned in the oldest scriptures. The problem with dating things in Indian history is that many important texts were not actually written down until relatively late. The Vedas, the root of Indian culture and religion, are still fully memorized and recited by

There is a paradox to trauma. People remember being traumatized, but often not very well. All kinds of confusing things can be mixed into the memory of traumatic events. It's not impossible for women to be sexual abusers (Exhibit A: Ghislaine Maxwell) but it's very rare. Heidi Klum may have been present at various events, or even drawn into sexual situations with some of these powerful men hersel

And this is just some of the pre-trial filings. As they really get going this is likely to spread like nuclear fallout, or something else: And if they do have a bunch of actual tapes from seizing Jeffrey Epstein's home(s), expect some very high profile arrests before her trial is finished.

This constant self-mutilation is really beginning to make me wonder what the "Republican Convention" will be like. Can they really stand to nominate him again? Is there any record of a sitting President going to his party's convention and getting bypassed/derailed/replaced?

I agree with OCaptain. If it's "extremely well documented" you can provide references. I suspect that genuine studies will show women get shunted into 'low status' professions that pay less by social pressures. K-12 Teachers were and are mostly women. Low status job, low pay. College professors on the other hand were mostly men until roughly the 1980s. Higher status, at least until

If this date prediction is intended to be precise it's very odd. Not only is the weather itself not predictable beyond about 7 days (this is the difficulty of weather prediction, even with supercomputers and modern data sensing technology) -- the exact point at which the dam would fail is not predictable. Materials science has also gotten very advanced over the years, but something as large as th

I have to wonder which side Barr would be on if Trump refused to recognize the election results. He's been pushing that "Unitary Executive" (Presidential Royalty, Nixon's position) concept for decades now.

Hopefully the 'silent majority' are paying attention. It's way early for a typical political season. Serious public interest in politics would usually not start till September, after the conventions. But this year has been so different in other ways that maybe it will be different in this way, too. Those suburbs he's claiming Biden wants to wipe out may turn out to be much more aware, and angry,

But Trump and Barr almost certainly think that it's a good thing. They think chaos in the streets will motivate 'the silent majority' to vote for Trump. This is a guy who just breathes xenophobia, he doesn't need to think it through, or have a philosophy or principled belief in anything. And it got him elected the first time, though by a razor thin electoral margin. He's basically trying to copy

Oh, I don't think it's anything like a mistake or even a miscalculation. He clearly wants rioting and general disorder in as many major Democratic controlled cities as possible. It's part of his re-election strategy. For Trump and his "base", Democrats = immigrants, brown people, anarchists, criminals in general and and any other symbol of disorder and scary non-whiteness he can get to

They are not earth-like or even earth-sized planets, but this is the first time they have gotten good enough resolution to show the planets orbiting an ordinary star similar to our sun. Sooner or later, an earth-like world will be found, and the technology will be developed to image it, and we will have a really haunting image of someplace that might have life just like here.

You are assuming that this 'mass disbursement' is possible. First, if larger scale deployment starts to show serious negative side-effects, there will be a hard stop. Second, even if it seems to be working and has no more negative side-effects than a flu vaccine, there will be substantial resistance from the QAnon crowd who think it's some sort of secret Universal ID scheme by the Deep State, or

Similar predictions were made about TARP when it was first rolled out, and then quantitative easing as it was practiced for most of a decade after. So far, there hasn't been any explosion of inflation. Probably because of the extreme economic conditions that these measures were trying to counter-act. The pandemic is also producing some pretty extreme economic conditions. Don't count your disaster

And many, many 'lefty' journalists have recognized that. Here are articles by just a few: Quote Is the Anti-Racism Training Industry Just Peddling White Supremacy? By Jonathan Chait ...

Waco was a BATF debacle, at least initially. Another 'dregs of government' bunch. The FBI didn't do themselves any favors in their clumsy attempt to recover the mess, though. BATF has been a sh*tshow since forever. That agency has roots under various names going all the way back to the very earliest days of the US Govt.

Once upon a time, honest political activists would coordinate -- with the local government where they planned to demonstrate if possible -- but sometimes that was not possible due to hostility of the establishment. At the least, they would train for their demonstrations. Learn how to manage their own group and keep the inevitable trouble-makers out. Rioters are just naturally attracted to any opp

You are probably thinking of Wilson. After he had a stroke on October 2, 1919 -- more than a year before the 1920 election -- he basically went into seclusion within the White House. He was seriously affected, and honestly should have recognized that he was incapacitated and resigned. Instead he hung on, and his wife, Edith, was one of the main conduits for anyone else to communicate with him. (H
