    Several days ago, one of my arch nemesis oldfartrants, a senile old hippie bum from West LA who has a YouTube channel advocating socialism has now called for the overthrow of Donald Trump. This, after spending nearly a decade referring to Conservatives as traitors and opponents of Barack Obama as seditionists. He attacks Trump comparing him to Hitler and attacking other conservatives such as Ron Paul, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Sarah Palin and so on. Yet now its not treason anymore to be in dissent, its no longer treason to want to overthrow an elected official like Trump or...

    She recently attributed her weight loss to Donald Trump's presidency - citing 'soul-crushing pain and devastation and hopelessness' in helping her slim down. And Lena Dunham proved the Trump diet is working a treat as she showcased her incredibly slimline new frame at the opening of mentor Tracy Anderson's studio in New York on Wednesday. The Girls star, 30, looked thrilled to be flaunting her firmer form as she hammed it up with aplomb on the red carpet, at one point showing off her mobile phone after receiving a video call from fellow Anderson disciple Gwyneth Paltrow.

    Are the elements of the former Obama administration orchestrating another civil war? Former Attorney General issued a video on behalf of Senate Democrats urging Americans to resist in the time of “fear and uncertainty for so many people.” Lynch lamented “our rights being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back,” according to the hostage-like video. She said it’s required “work” to “achieve the ideals of our Founding Fathers.” “It has been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals who have made the...

    The Young Turks ^ | 3/2/2017 | Michael Tracey
    The basic formula for every breaking Trump/Russia story is essentially as follows: 1. The New York Times or Washington Post releases an article that at first blush appears extremely damning. 2. Anti-Trump pundits and Democrats react reflexively to the news, express shrieking outrage, and proclaim that this finally proves untoward collusion between Trump and Russia — a smoking gun, at last. 3. Aggrieved former Clinton apparatchiks *connect the dots* in a manner eerily reminiscent of right-wing Glenn Beck-esque prognostication circa 2009. 4. Self-proclaimed legal experts rashly opine as to whether the new revelation entails some kind of criminally actionable offense. (Recall the...

Although he is not, technically speaking, a member of any political party - the affiliation is more a kind of “shorthand to describe my values to voters,” he says - his second-time run for a Council seat is couched in the belief that, in Seattle, anyway, “it’s not enough anymore to be an establishment Democrat.” The events of the past year, and especially of the past few months, seem to echo that sentiment. November 8, 2016, was an...

    A new UN leader took office just three weeks before a new president of the United States. But because the United States is the biggest financial supporter of the United Nations and President Trump doesn’t like the global organization, UN Secretary-General António Guterres has to tread carefully. When the Trump travel ban hit, the UN leader did not criticize the border measure for several days. Guterres led the United Nations refugee agency for 10 years. His spokesman in New York was cautious in comments to the press while Guterres was in Africa as massive demonstrations and most UN member governments...

    The rise of populism has triggered an increase in anti-Semitism, racism, xenophobia, anti-Muslim hatred and other forms of intolerance, U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres said Friday. The new U.N. chief told several hundred people, including Holocaust survivors, at the U.N.’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust that “a ‘new normal’ of public discourse is taking hold, in which prejudice is given a free pass and the door is opened to even more extreme hatred.” Guterres, who as Portugal’s prime minister spurred Parliament in 1996 to revoke a 16th century letter expelling all Jews from the country, said people like him who grew...

    PARIS — President François Hollande stunned France on Thursday when he announced that he would not run for a second term in next year’s presidential election. In a televised address from the Élysée Palace, Mr. Hollande said that he was “aware of the risks” of a candidacy that would not “rally” enough people to it. “I have thus decided not to be a candidate in the presidential elections,” Mr. Hollande said.

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday fended off a challenge to her long leadership reign, defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) in a closed-door vote prompted largely by Donald Trump’s unlikely ascension to the White House. Pelosi got 134 votes to Ryan's 63 — winning 68 percent of the votes after declaring before the election that she had the support of two-thirds of the caucus. The victory sends a message that while there's a growing appetite for major changes in the party's leadership structure and messaging tactics, it's not strong enough to loosen Pelosi's grip on a liberal-heavy group...

    In 449 B.C., the Roman government passed the Law of the Twelve Tables, regulating much of commercial, social, and family life. Some of these laws were reasonable and consistent with an economy of contract and commerce; others prescribed gruesome punishments and assigned cruel powers and privileges given to some. Other regulations fixed a maximum rate of interest on loans of approximately 8 percent. The Roman government also had the habit of periodically forgiving all interest owed in the society; that is, it legally freed private debtors from having to pay back interest due to private creditors. The Roman government also...

The tech giant was able to save $65.08 billion (£51.1 billion) that it should have paid in tax thanks to its convoluted arrangements. The report revealed that last year three quarters of the Fortune 500 companies use subsidiaries in offshore tax havens where they sent a total of $2.42 trillion (£1.9 trillion) of income. In the US alone this amounted to $715.62 billion (£561.9 billion) in tax which they avoided paying. The report of said...

The rollout of Clinton's plan -- which includes tripling the size of AmeriCorps and founding a reserve corps of 5 million people to respond to natural disasters -- was meant to be a moment for Clinton to talk more about her policies and values than about her boisterous opponent. But as has been the case throughout 2016, Clinton's speech was a both a direct and implicit rebuke of Trump.

Now his wife and campaign confidante, Jane O'Meara Sanders, is defending the senator's decision not to file a candidate personal finance disclosure and talking about the purchase of a new vacation home.

    Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders “shunned” some of his closest personal friends as he moved away from Vermont socialist circles and into big-time Democratic Party politics, and the resentment still lingers today. Sanders’ political star is rising as he positions himself as a left-wing alternative to Hillary Clinton. His rallies are drawing major crowds and helping drive the Democratic Party’s voter registration and mobilization efforts among liberals disenchanted by Wall Street-friendly Clinton. But as the media praises Sanders’ “socialist” credentials, socialists in the senator’s home state said there’s no love lost between them.

    And guess what: The prayer leader asked for it I guess people who think Jesus was a socialist figure it’s no big deal to substitute one socialist for another, hey? Dr. Cynthia Hale, who offered the opening prayer, is senior pastor of Ray of Hope Christian Church in Atlanta. She’s not just some Democrat political hack who was told to go up there and go through the motions of doing a prayer so they could say they did it. And my discernment tells me that she was trying to be sincere, although I note two things:

    Swedish Left Party politician Barbro Sörman has suggested that it’s “worse” when Swedish men rape women, than when immigrants do so. “The Swedish men who rape do it despite the growing gender equality. They make an active choice. It’s worse imo [in my opinion],” Sörman tweeted. Sörman, a self-described socialist and a feminist, made the observation in response to what she claimed was excessive media focus on the fact that most of the rapes in Sweden are committed by immigrants. She explained that Swedish men are brought up in a society that believes in gender equality and therefore should be...

    Plans for 'a closer European Union' have been branded an attempt to create a 'European superstate'. Germany's foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault today presented a proposal for closer EU integration based on three key areas - internal and external security, the migrant crisis, and economic cooperation. But the plans have been described as an 'ultimatum' in Poland, with claims it would mean countries transfer their armies, economic systems and border controls to the EU. Zaoralek added that the four eastern members had reservations about the proposed common security policy. Eastern members have become increasingly jittery...

    To begin with, "socialist" and "superhero" are a contradiction in terms. To be a superhero, one needs the innovation of capitalism and the conservative values of self-reliance. Progressives argue that superheroes must be socialist because they believe in science, otherwise they wouldn't be able to develop all their gadgets and souped up vehicles, etc., e.g. Batman.
