New York, overbuilt and gentrified

Let’s start with the latest from my Brooklyn Nabe. This is the sole grocery/supermarket within easy walking distance of my apartment. You’ll notice it is boarded up. I had mixed feelings about the place–they were open late and 365 days a year, but the cleanliness was always an issue, and their produce and dairy were […]

The revelations so far about JFK

Remember the last few weeks when everybody in the Pundit biz talked about what a yawner the revelation of the redacted files on JFK’s assassination would be? Fun times. First, there’s this: This is a memo from the then-director of the CIA John McCone, to James Rowley, the chief of the Secret Service, on the […]

The Gummit drops the JFK assassination files

Today is the day the National Archives and Records Administration is supposed to reveal long-suppressed documents regarding the assassination of JFK. This has been mandated to occur for some 25 years, ever since a Congressional vote on the topic back in 1992.   I don’t expect much.  We really know about 90% of what we need […]

Latest from Guy and other things

I was really moved by Dr. Guy McPherson’s latest video. Yes, he’s still talking about near term human extinction. No, it ain’t fixed. No, it probably can’t be fixed. But he’s no longer the methodical, analytic individual I first encountered when watching his videos from 2012. I think he’s playing to an audience of his […]

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 […]

Tried to warn you, Tampa

The week of superstorms, culminating in the weekend of anxiety. First there was Hurricane Harvey, bearing down on Houston, Texas like God Almighty was in a smiting mood. Then there was Hurricane Irma, clobbering Cuba and the Virgin Islands and then heading up Florida like a titanoboa ready to wrap around Florida’s peninsula and crush […]
