Las Vegas shooting–the rumors start (UPDATE)

A preamble. While I’ve frequently mentioned conspiracy theories here, I think I’ve been careful to draw a line on what (I think) is believable and what is not. For example, I think the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth have made a credible case that the story of 9/11 has a seriously compromised narrative. One […]

HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE –the Trump era reboot

We are now in the Trump era. Even if the folks attempting to tip over Trump by begging electors to vote against the state totals, we will never be able as a nation to escape what has been wrought on us by this election. And I suspect all attempts to reboot the election will fail. […]

The ‘country club’ branch of the GOP is panicked (and rightly so). Trump represents a challenge to the Republican status quo that’s pretty hard to quantify. But […]

Crazy white men with guns in Oregon (updated)

UPDATE–a more relevant photo meme just out after the local sheriff had a hand-shake with Ammon Bundy.  Assuming you’re paying attention, you’ve heard that self-styled ‘militia’ have swept down on Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon and taken it over, vowing to not move ‘for years’. There’s a breakdown of the various stances on Vox, which is […]
