A fourth year medical student was admitted to Cardiff University Medical School who is almost totally deaf and blind.
America’s democracy and constitution is being trashed by unelected shadowy forces, aided and abetted by prestigious media outlets like the New York Times. These forces presume to know better or have more privilege than their fellow Americans who “voted the wrong way”.
Beyond the simple fact that a tax on meat would be yet another example of government overreach, there are other problems with a meat tax. It is also based on a subjective and dubious interpretation of the effects of meat on both the environment and on personal health. Such a tax would, like existing taxes on sugar and tobacco products, disproportionately impact the poorest Americans.
We are in the process of committing national financial suicide, and most Americans don’t seem to care. As you will see below, the federal budget deficit for the fiscal year that ended on September 30th was the largest in 7 years. In fact, it was actually 26 percent larger than last year. Federal spending is wildly out of control, and “non-discretionary spending” is projected to go through the roof in the years ahead. Under our current system, it is literally going to be impossible to turn things around. As the Baby Boomers continue to retire, the amount of resources demanded…
The repo market provides a means for banks that are temporarily short of cash to obtain short-term (usually one day) loans from other banks. The Fed’s interventions were a response to a sudden cash shortage that caused interest rates for these short-term loans to climb to 10 percent, far above the Fed’s target rate.
The American Empire—with its endless wars waged by U.S. military servicepeople who have been reduced to little more than guns for hire: outsourced, stretched too thin, and deployed to far-flung places to police the globe—is approaching a breaking point.
But this is a huge problem for the Democratic establishment. As I discussed a few days ago, the elite absolutely do not want Warren to win the nomination. Other than Biden, all of the other “mainstream candidates” have completely flopped, and so the Democratic establishment is becoming desperate.
The Intelligence Community claim that the DNC emails were taken via a Russian spearphising attack is a lie. All 35,813 DNC emails posted on Wikileaks are in a FAT format according to the metadata. This means the emails were downloaded onto a recordable media, such as a thumb drive.
Utility companies are pretty jazzed about this, too. Knowing exactly when their customers use their gas and electric 24/7 and what for gives them the opportunity to try to sell their customers additional products and services. Utility companies can also sell this private data to third parties and then they can also try to sell these utility customers other products.
In April 2017 the Christian Institute received a response to a Freedom of Information request about the percentage of BBC staff who are LGBT. It was revealed that 11.5% of BBC bosses and 10.6% of BBC staff identified as LGBT, compared to only 1.7% of the UK population.
Legal critics of the judgement have pointed out that the Supreme Court has casually dispensed with the fundamentals of the ‘political constitution’ that was established following the ‘Glorious Revolution’ of 1688. In that constitution the Queen in parliament is sovereign.
She knows that it will be a disaster for the Democratic Party, that it will inflame the president’s base and inspire even his most lukewarm supporters with a sense of outrage. She knows that in states like Michigan, upon which her party’s chances in 2020 will depend, the question of impeachment does not poll well.
