About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

The real reason why Trump cares so much about the Time cover.....

Standing in the shadow of greatness



Exactly this....

As different as Night and Day

I was in City Hall, London, for a meeting. Arrived in the light and left in the dark. I like the contrast between the two photo's of Tower Bridge and how the scene offers very different things between the day and the night. I tried to get exactly the same aspect but did not quite succeed, although I hope it is enough of an aspect to see what I was trying to do with the idea of comparing and contrasting the same view at differing times.






Guess Which Country Has the Most Climate Change Deniers. (Youll Need Only One Guess.)



Do you know which country has the highest percentage of citizens that deny climate change? I’ll gladly give you three guesses, but you probably only need one: it’s the United States. (USA! USA!)

The Washington Post looked at some research on this subject and found that time and time again the country that has the most people unwilling to listen to climate science is America. While you can find a small percentage of people in every country that disagree that climate change is caused by humans, there are few other places in the world – and nowhere else in the industrialized world – where that percentage is so large.

Trump Impeachment Petition Crosses 250,000 Signatures



An online petition to have President Donald Trump removed from the Oval Office has reached more than a quarter-million signatures.

The petition was started at Change.org by The Million American Petition and has reached more than 264,300 signatures of its 300,000 goal, The Inquisitr reported.

After reaching their 300,000-signature goal, the group plans on delivering the petition to the U.S. Congress, U.S. House of Representatives, and The People Of The United States of America.

The petition accuses Trump of treason and violating the Patriot Act. It suggests that Trump conspired with the Russian government to swing the 2016 presidential election in his favor, and that Trump poses an “immediate threat to national security and his use of intimidation as president presents undeniable challenges in this investigation.”

Russian State TV Brags About Victory In Syria, Strength Over America



It's important not to give Putin too much credit. The New York Times reports that anti-Putin activists and scholars find all the US talk about Russia interfering in the election just makes Putin look competent and strong to the Russian population:

More surprising, some of Mr. Putin’s biggest foes in Russia, notably pro-Western liberals who look to the United States as an exemplar of democratic values and journalistic excellence, are now joining a chorus of protest over America’s fixation with Moscow’s meddling in its political affairs.

“Enough already!” Leonid M. Volkov, chief of staff for the anti-corruption campaigner and opposition leader Aleksei A. Navalny, wrote in a recent anguished post on Facebook. “What is happening with ‘the investigation into Russian interference,’ is not just a disgrace but a collective eclipse of the mind.”

What most disturbs Mr. Putin’s critics about what they see as America’s Russia fever is that it reinforces a narrative put forth tirelessly by the state-controlled Russian news media. On television, in newspapers and on websites, Mr. Putin is portrayed as an ever-victorious master strategist who has led Russia — an economic, military and demographic weakling compared with the United States — from triumph to triumph on the world stage.

But boy howdy, is Trump giving him plenty to crow about. Not to mention Syria's authoritarian leader Assad:

Abortion providers brace for new Trump funding fight



The Trump administration has a new opportunity to target the funding of Planned Parenthood and other groups that provide abortions.

The Department of Health and Human Services Department (HHS) will soon set the terms for obtaining grants under Title X, a federally funded family planning program long reviled by conservatives.

Officials within HHS who have been critical of Title X in the past now have the opportunity to reshape the program to fit the anti-abortion views of the administration.

Teresa Manning, the deputy assistant secretary of the office of population affairs at HHS, which oversees Title X, is a prominent anti-abortion advocate and a former lobbyist for the National Right to Life Committee. That group led the charge for restrictions on the program under President Reagan.

“This is the administration’s first attempt to really kind of redefine what they want the family planning program to look like,” said Audrey Sandusky, communications director for the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA), which represents Title X grant recipients.
