Was that case just not proven? It is impossible to prove. Yes, precisely my point you have a deep suspicion and you can suggest that people like Ronald Fiddler are bad people who want to kill innocent people like us. You do not have enough evidence to detain? To put them in Guantanamo Bay or put them under some sort of controller.

Not of the far right. Where we are now in politics, anybody who can win who is not of the right and who will fight off the right is an asset. It's a second-order issue precisely what policies are, what we know is that he's not racist, he is pro-European, he is socially liberal.

It's a second-order issue precisely what policies are, what we know is that he's not racist, he is pro-European, he is socially liberal. And he will fight off some of the dark forces in France and across Europe. Hello to everyone. This is a message for American researchers... He has a canny political sense for appealing to liberals. I do know how your new President now has decided to jeopardise your budget, your initiatives, as he is extremely sceptical about climate change.

If there is a single quality that defines Uber, it’s that it is somewhat sociopathic by design: An antipathy toward norms is built into the car-hailing company’s business model. Algorithms determine surge pricing, which often causes prices to spiral precisely when people need them most, like during snowstormsunless the company opts to turn the surge off. While operating in a regulated industry, Uber has often sought to enter markets without getting the necessary permission, leading to litigation and legislative skirmishes . It doesnt want to recognize its drivers as employees . Last month, Uber generated outrage —and inspired the #deleteuber hashtag—when drivers accepted fares at John F. Kennedy International Airport as taxi drivers went on a short strike over President Trump’s travel ban. In the aftermath of that incident, CEO Travis Kalanick pulled out of Trump’s executive advisory council.

The Patient Freedom Act hasn't gotten much traction in the healthcare debate precisely because it is that thing hated in early 2017 -- a compromise. But as the prospects of "victory" for each side diminish, we ought to look seriously at the bill's ideas -- and figure out how to reduce its costs.

"I watch the message bounce from Rhodes’s brain to Price’s keyboard to the three big briefing podiums — the White House, the State Department, and the Pentagon — and across the Twitterverse, where it springs to life in dozens of insta-stories, which over the next five hours don formal dress for mainstream outlets." It was Price who explained to Samuels precisely how the White House used its "compadres" to control the narrative of the news cycle, according to the Times piece: Ned Price, Rhodes's assistant, gave me a primer on how it's done. The easiest way for the White House to shape the news, he explained, is from the briefing podiums, each of which has its own dedicated press corps. "But then there are sort of these force multipliers," he said, adding, "We have our compadres, I will reach out to a couple people, and you know I wouldn't want to name them—" "I can name them," I said, ticking off a few names of prominent Washington reporters and columnists who often tweet in sync with White House messaging.

And it is precisely for this coverage that some of the traditional outlets have, at times, been dismissive of our brand of journalism (even though we know they follow our work closely). That includes our many stories of the Deep State and its history in the United States. In fact, while virtually all other news outlets in the US have to first explain to their audiences what the Deep State is, our readers are very familiar with the term. In fact, we have an entire category dedicated to “Deep Politics.” It includes dozens of stories from Peter Dale Scott , the foremost expert on the issue. His latest two-part article on Donald Trump and the Deep State ran exactly a week before Michael Flynn resigned as National Security Adviser — the event that kicked off the current debate on the Deep State. That particular story ran with the following WhoWhatWhy intro, which should be boilerplate language for all of these other news outlets now trying to catch up: When the uninitiated think of the “Deep State,” they tend to imagine a group of men getting together in a room, smoking cigars and plotting world domination.

For frequent cooks with families, there are tip-out storage units for bulk food storage: By Wood-Mode, Inc . Shoe storage is another good application for the tip-out form factor. Unless you're storing boots, it's a good way to fit a lot of footwear in much less space than they'd take up horizontally. In particular, look at how shallow these white cabinets are. Tip-out designs are also good for deeper bins that get steadily loaded and periodically emptied, like laundry, trash and recycling. Here's an example of how a tip-out bin can be integrated into dead space in a kitchen island. You can also take a cue from the boatbuilding industry. Companies make tip-out units designed to fit into bulwarks, and precisely sized to hold standardized containers like tackleboxes. This could come in handy in a shop or craft environment where you're periodically accessing self-contained kits.

It’s taken you more than 10 hours to write a blog post. You’ve researched the topic to the nth degree. You’ve edited it to within an inch of its life. Now it’s time to get it out into the world! You excitedly press Publish, and ... even days later ... crickets. Heartbreaking, right? We all like to think that the amount of effort we invest in creating a piece of content directly correlates to how deeply it resonates with readers . But, experience has repeatedly shown this is not the case. So, what’s the deciding factor if it’s not effort? Luck? Timing? Skill? Yes, the factors above do play a part. But, more often than not, it comes down to these two elements: If your content doesnt hook readers in the first few sentences, it doesnt matter how good the rest of it is, you’ve lost them. If you dont clearly communicate your idea, readers may lose interest after your introduction because they dont have an incentive to keep reading.

In our youth, my brother Chris and I went to many Ringling Brothers circuses, watching as the clowns, with their painted faces, bulbous noses, floppy shoes and oversized dustbins, followed behind the elephants to clean up their droppings, trying to make the chore seem normal if not even humorous. Now, one watches Trump’s inner circle perform precisely the same function for the President as he puts before the public one stinking elephantine whopper after another. Trump, who apparently does not read books, has asked his staff and cabinet to give him nothing longer to read than a single page . Richard Nixon was many things, but he was both interested in and knowledgeable about social policy, insisting that his staff brief him equally and fully on both sides of every issue that came before him. What information Trump does get seems to come from one direction only: conspiracy theorists, and discredited right-wing news sources and his own Twitter feed.

Long eager to reach a political settlement with the Taliban, successive Afghan governments have stopped short of calling for the group to be designated as a terrorist organization, said Dobbins, who led the 2001 Bonn negotiations that created the first post-Taliban government in Afghanistan. "If the U.S. was seriously proposing to do it, my guess is it would lead some Afghan officials to counsel against it precisely because they'd still hope eventually to be able to launch some process of reconciliation," Dobbins said. "If [the Trump administration] really wants to create an obstacle to communications with the Taliban, then this probably could have that effect." A spokesman for Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said he was unaware of any proposal to designate the Taliban as a terrorist organization. Advantages of the label With the U.S. military enjoying broad authority to target the Taliban, a terrorist designation would have little impact on the battlefield.

Horizontal Democracy “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” Ernest Hemmingway Similarly, as a citizenry, true nobility is being superior to our former political position. Horizontal Democracy, void of rulers and masters, is far superior to vertical democracy, dependent upon a chain of obedience. There is more progressive evolution in a spoonful of horizontal democracy than in an entire ocean of stagnant vertical democracy. Vertical democracy does not work well for healthy human beings precisely because of the fact that power tends to corrupt. Horizontal democracy is robust with checks and balances, so that power rarely has a chance to ever become corrupt. With neither masters, nor rulers attempting to monopolize power, human kind is more likely to evolve into a more progressive and sustainable species.

After all, the ill-equipped, underfed, inadequately uniformed colonists were quite busy farming land for food and running their vital businesses. Fast forward to 2017! And to the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump. The continuing Great Recession that began in 2008 has likewise put extraordinary pressures on everyone–the rich, the poor and the middle class alike. Because of this reality, Deep State had to do something quite extraordinary; otherwise, how would TPTB sufficiently man their Purple Revolution . BEWARE: The Purple Revolution Comes To America… …Courtesy of George Soros, the Clinton Crime Family, and the Obama Administration This is precisely why they blew open Pizzagate just before the election.
