The Reptilian Agenda:

"...The incoming vice-president, Mike Pence, has acknowledged the support of David Koch. Myron Ebell, the chair of the Koch-backed Cooler Heads Coalition, which questions “global warming alarmism”, will lead Trump’s transition team for the Environmental Protection Agency. Another Trump appointment to that team, David Schnare, is a former member of the Heartland Institute, which denies the scientific evidence for man-made climate change and is a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (Alec), another organisation funded by the Kochs.

Meanwhile Thomas Pyle, of the Koch-backed American Energy Alliance, is off to the energy department, while Doug Domenech of the Texas Public Policy Foundation, which has received millions in Koch funds, is joining the Department of the Interior..."

Justice Center in Raleigh, “… you no longer have a basic remedy.”

“The LGBT issues were a Trojan horse,” added Erika Wilson, a law professor at the University of North Carolina who co-directs a legal clinic for low-income plaintiffs with job and housing discrimination claims. The broader change hasn’t received much attention, she said, because “people were so caught up in [the LGBT] part of the law that this snuck under the radar.”

All Coins Roll to the Iron Banks

What happens when their faceless men face off each other? They make a big deal of Putin and the Chinese hegemons in the current exposition, but Mossack-Fonseca is only the fourth largest of the offshore banks in the scrum. One wonders if the leakers work for one or more of the top three.

slippin' back to my same old used-to-be

Is is just me or is this $election starting to feel like deja vu all over again?

Except more interesting, in a pathological incitement to street violence kind of way.

I think it's time to brush off the old html-speak and start posting again.
