by Richard Cameron   Former chief White House political strategist, Steve Bannon appeared before the House Intelligence Committee  investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and declined to answer all questions posed to him by members of the panel, including those of Republican Mike Conaway (R-TX).  Fellow GOP panel member Devin Nunes, (R-CA) was left with no option but to issue a subpeona to Bannon’s attorney. “Of course I authorized the subpoena,” he told reporters. “That’s how the rules work.”  Bannon was in meeting in closed door hearings for…

Quantum Physics of Prayer: Self-Conscious

by Oletta Branstiter Omnipresent Consciousness “All the choir of heaven and furniture of earth, in a word all those bodies which compose the mighty frame of the world, have not any substance without the mind … so long as they are not actually perceived by me, or do not exist in my mind, or that of any other created spirit, they must either have no existence at all, or else subsist in the mind of some Eternal Spirit.” – George Berkeley, Idealist Philosopher By now, we realize that we exist…

Donald Trump and Barack Obama’s Dreamer’s Act: Is DACA Splitting Voters Once Again?

  By Janice Barlow LONG BEFORE DONALD TRUMP ANNOUNCED HIS CANDIDACY, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), also called the “Dreamer’s Act“, was a hotly contested issue. Most conservatives did not want a free ticket to amnesty for anyone. People who have struggled to become U.S. citizens the legal way would be cheated by those who would be given a pass, simply by nature of their arrival here illegally under the age of 31 in June 2012. Also, if parents were illegals, their birth here would not automatically make them…

Trump Sacrifices Homeland Security For “Beautiful Wall” And Tax Windfall

by Richard Cameron Donald Trump – as presidential candidate courted his fanatical campaign followers with absolute, unequivocal pledges to beef up border security and protect Americans from terror attacks. For example, his campaign speech in Phoenix, Arizona in August of 2016.  That campaign appearance was arranged for the purpose of erasing any confusion or doubt about what Trump’s intentions were concerning immigration, border protection and domestic security, including the threat of terrorism – particularly since Trump had been tacking away from his most aggressive rhetoric on the subject in months…

Out of the Stable, to Insanity, and Beyond: How the Media has Affected the Presidency

By Janice Barlow EVERYONE KNOWS that when someone reacts badly when he is taunted or teased, that it only causes his tormentors to bring it on even more. We all remember back to our school days when those poor kids were relentlessly picked on. Maybe we were one of them. The more the victims reacted by lashing out at their antagonizers, the more the bullies would delight in picking on their easy targets. Last week, journalist Michael Wolff‘s book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” flew off the…

Meltdown Cyber Threat Is Radioactive For Intel And Your PCs, Macs And Smartphones

by Richard Cameron   By now, most of our readers have likely heard about the Apple iPhone debacle late December, in which the company pushed power consumption updates to various of their recent and older cell phones, slowing the phone data transmission rate in order to extend the life of their non user replaceable batteries. That continues to rankle millions of iPhone users worldwide and constitute a corresponding PR disaster for the company. Just on the heels of that is a tech fail that affects a predominant variety of computing…

The Purple GOP and Why it Must Bleed Red Again

By Janice Barlow WELL, IT’S FINALLY HERE. The year of the midterm elections. Instead of being revved up and ready to hit the ground running, Republicans seem skittish. The candidates and Congress members are not red-blooded anymore. They are oxygen depleted and absorbing the blue of the liberals. They are turning purple. Some are announcing their retirement, like Senator Orin Hatch (Utah) who served for 40 years. He certainly should retire though. His most likely replacement at this point is Mitt Romney, another moderate with a slightly better liberty score,…
