Fuckerberg's Platform Help To The Alt-Right -- How To Move People Away From Progressive Media

This seems too long. Still it's worth knowing when encountering alt-righties who can't believe they are racist or Nazis.

The Last Thought You Will Ever Have


The US Is Set To Drown The World In Oil -- Just So We Know What Our Climate Politics Are Up Against

Share of production from new oil & gas fields: 2020-2029

Small pie chart:

Big pie chart:



... by the end of the next decade, new oil and gas fields in the US will produce more than twice what Saudi Arabia produces today.

The future of our changing climate and its increasingly devastating impacts across the globe will be shaped by future oil and gas production. And if the future of oil and gas production is decided by what happens in new fields, then it will be determined by what happens in the US in the next decade.


I feel an unspeakable fear for our children's and grandchildren's future planned by oil oligarchs.

Jane Mayer On the Origin of Right Wing Conspiracy Fabricators

Chris Hayes brings Jane Mayer to American awareness.

Jane Mayer brings Robert Mercer's dark money Government Accountability Institute to American awareness.

Mercer's Breitbart's Steve Bannon was behind Peter Schweitzer, who wrote Clinton's Cash, which kicked off the right wing's media stories.

Now, our media still falls for all this same right wing dirt, motivated by ratings and profit.

My theory: Brad Parscale's digital campaign uses variations of these 'stories' in a game of telephone on Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp.

Dark money drives all this. But you can't tell that to Justice Samuel Alito.

Numbers From Malcolm Nance's FB Post On Trump and Turkey


A lawsuit filed by 29 senators and 186 House Democrats

-- one of three lawsuits claiming Trump is in violation of the Constitutionís emoluments clauses, which bar the president from receiving any monetary or other benefits from foreign entities while in office --

has uncovered that Turkey has among the highest number of foreign business ventures in which Trump is at least a partial owner, with a whopping 119 businesses listed in addition to Trump Tower Istanbul. Others include China, with 115, and the Philippines, with 121.

Businesses linked to the Turkish government are also major patrons of the Trump Organization.

Turkish officials have made 14 visits to Trump properties, more than any other country, according to an analysis performed for NBC News by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW.

Go, Malcolm!

Meanwhile, Climate Change Don't Care About Politics, Disaster, Risk, Seasons

Unheard of bankruptcies by "bedrock" companies is the new future.

No ego-fights over economic or political "risk," "exposure" will save us.

We are now in a human killing era that our little pockets still refuse to pay anything to slow down.

Come ON, Pentagon, act like you really know what your declaration of #1 National Security Threat REALLY means.

A universal framework for addressing cascading disasters still needs to be developed.

A global system that can predict the interactions between natural and built environments MIGHT save millions of lives and billions of dollars.

Most important, community outreach and public education must be prioritized to raise awareness of the potential risks cascading hazards will cause.
