Stamped from the Beginning - 3 Threads

I've created this account specifically to create this post, in hope that Thom and as many of his fans as possible will read a very important book written by Ibram X. Kendrik called Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America

The Chaos Comes From The Dominator Male Culture

Just finished reading an important contribution to raising human consciousness .The Heart -Mind Matrix ..How the Heart Can Teach the Mind New Ways to Think by Joseph Chilton Pearce he wrote the forward to Thom’s book The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight which should be on the carriculum of every school on the planet.

Bars and Stripes Forever: The Official Trump March is Designated

With apologies to John Philip Sousa, the official march of the Trump administration will be Bars and Stripes Forever.

Word is that other official designations are on the way, such as the national fish, the Convict Cichlid.

The official avian species is the Jail Bird.

The official Trump mammal will be the Sewer Rat (apologies to rats—the skunk was a close second).

I am entertaining other nominations for these important appointments.

"Trickle-Up Economics" -- The only plan that will work

The analogy which seems to best characterize the myth of Reagonomics is that ‘the best way to feed the birds is to give all of the grain to the horses and let the birds pick through their droppings to sustain themselves.’ Sounds like a shitty life to me!

Indictments: Did Leaks Prompt the New Trump and Nunez Offensives Against Muller and Clinton?

The Millipede's Ball

Now come the first criminal charges in the Muller investigation.

Beware of connected devices! They are a prime target for hacking.

Connected devices are increasingly being used for cyber attacks. They often lack critical device protections and organizations fail to segment their networks in order to reduce the attack surface. If you can connect to your devices through the internet, so could anybody else. This video put out by Cisco highlights exactly how real this threat is.

JFK was killed by Dulles & Co.

If you've read JFK and The Unspeakable by James Douglass and Devil's Chessboard by David Talbot, you can see that JFK was killed by the 'deep state's' creator Allen Dulles and his buddies. I leave you with this by Joan Mellen

What I Think Conservatives Really Want

Yesterday was a tough one. I got really angry. The trigger ultimately had little to do with what it became: an over-the-top, emotional meltdown about Trump’s America and all things conservative. Cathartic though it may have been, indulging rage really isn’t any fun. I’m hoping the purge will sate me for a good while to come.

Oil $

Consider what supports the value of the dollar--oil. Agreements to buy and sell oil in American dollars has maintained the dominance of this currency. Now, the value of oil is eroding fast. American refineries step up capacity. Pipelines funnel oil to refineries for countries still dependent. Decreased investment in oil and oil infrastructure globally. (Think bombing Iraq's refineries.) Refining capacity increases in value relative to oil production. Capitalists liquidate and convert assets in dollars to other forms of wealth, thus, the current accelerated rape of American economy.

How our republic could die in the age of Trump - in a stunning parallel to the fall of Rome

Thom plus logo The American republic could die, just like Rome. Wavering for some time on the verge of becoming a complete oligarchy, America is on the verge of flipping from a democratic republic to a strongman or autocratic form of government, something that's happened to dozens of democracies in the past few decades, but never before here.
