      “And you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” John 8:32

      IF, and it’s a big if, this story is allowed to be told, will people start to realize how badly we have been lied to by our political leaders for the last 30+ years? Our country’s security and technology have been systematically hijacked and the lobbyists and members of the Uniparty have gotten rich by turning a blind eye, or even, in many cases, writing/passing the legislation that has allowed it to happen!!

      I just re-read this article from 2016 discussing how income inequality has changed drastically in America over the last 30 years. It is fairly informative to a point but NEVER addresses the two giant elephants in the living room that have been the biggest factors IMHO…the massive theft of jobs/intellectual property by the Chinese in that time frame AND the massive invasion of illegals into the country, which has further weakened our capacities and dramatically increased the size and scope of governmental welfare programs to service them.

    So little Adam Schiffty has a primary opponent—a drag queen. Sounds like the best possible challenger to take down BugEyes. I just don’t see the DemocRATs being able to go after a drag queen in favor of Old Bug Eyes.

      That’s such an interesting video to me (another winner, Zippy!). That was from 2011, the period after I stopped voting for any Dems (I hated Obama so voted Republican for the first time in my life in Nov 2008), but hadn’t recognized yet that I was a actually conservative. That recognition didn’t come until Traythug got himself shot, which was 2012. So I was unaware of that whole fake Tea Party scandal. If I had been paying more attention that fake scandal might have been the the event that forced me to reconsider just about all that I new about myself and the world.

      It’s so unfortunate Breitbart couldn’t witness the election of Trump.

      Yeah I do not agree with this line of thought. It reminds me of the gun control advocates who say we need to control guns to stop killings. Same is true with users of drugs. Do we really need to control drugs to keep users from injecting them? I do not think so. I understand all the various ways ppl get addicted. It is just sad no one is addressing the elephant in the room, it is a personal decision to take a drug, whether legal or not. More ppl need to say no to drugs. I do it, and believe me when I say I have had some real highs as I lay in the hospital bed with my mistress morphine.

        I was in agonizing pain for 4 weeks after knee surgery. All the doctor would prescribe was tylenol. I refused the prescription tylenol they tried to give me at the hospital, because I figured that they would have charged me $500 for the two pills.

        In CA, several big shots of whiskey & a bullet to bite on is the only pain treatment you can get.

        Yes we do. Because some people are not strong, and some people get addicted when others don’t.

        Example: I had zero attraction to alcohol, but for some people it totally turns on some portion of their brain and they are hooked. It wouldn’t be fair for me to say “Hey, alcoholics should just stop drinking” just because I don’t have a problem being a non-drinker.

            I wonder about the persons out of the tens of thousands who read CTH who have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer (or will be) or have a loved one who is dealing with it or who died from it. My uncle died from pancreatic cancer.

            What is the effect of the information you posted here? Will your words haunt them? This is the second such comment I’ve read today about pancreatic cancer. Totally unnecessary.

              Well, RV Sue and Crew, you probably won’t want to read this post then:

              As anyone who has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, or is close to someone who has pancreatic cancer, pain mitigation is often one of the biggest hurdles that you (or they) will face. Thankfully, there are modern techniques that have been effective in dealing with this problem, including nerve blocks, surgeries or strong pain-killers. However, the fact remains that pain and it’s mitigation will likely be central to the patient and doctor considerations as long as the cancer remains. For terminal patients, pain mitigation often becomes the primary consideration near end of life.

              Anyone in this situation will no doubt know this already, contrary to RV Sue’s comment above, as it is rare to diagnose pancreatic cancer any other way other than “unexplained pain coming from one’s mid-section or lower back”. This is due to the cancerous growth on the pancreas, which is located behind the stomach, putting pressure either on the stomach region or the lower back.

              I do know someone who lost his father to this cancer years ago. It was a balance between max dosage of a methadone-based pain killer and having some quality of life. It was a miserable existence towards the end. Listening to my colleague as he struggled with caring for his father and ultimately realizing that death was welcomed is how I know this stuff. I am not a doctor. Just someone who knows what sadness this terrible disease can bring. Again, I don’t wish it on anyone.

              In the EXTREMELY UNLIKELY case that a CTH reader is dealing with pancreatic cancer, and my posts are breaking news to them and is now “haunting” them, I am sorry. But, IMO, preparing oneself with information is way better than putting one’s head in the sand.

                Restraint would’ve been kind, but that’s my opinion. Feel free to disregard it.

She was still able to get around, meet friends for coffee…she was doing Chinese herbal medicine and it was really helping. But, the end came really quickly..one day on the phone talking, next day in a coma, and then dead.

      This was a great video reminding us of what most have forgotten…..The lie of crowd strike that Russia hacked the DNC. How no one has seen the evidence and everyone even Trump supporters have not pushed for proof. This would put an end to the whole Russia hoax and Mueller report . It would all come crashing down. Why hasn’t Jordan, Nunes and most importantly Barr not made an issue out of it. We should really start making noise about this. If enough people do …push on Hannity…Ingram…Tucker…Rush as to why they haven’t hammered this point…..if it falls on deaf ears then we know for sure no one will be indited. That they are not interested at getting to that person at the top who started this Obama and who he answers to Obama obviously is not the least bit worried by evidence of how he is living large and it is evident by how the others are conducting themselves. No one is worried about indictment. Barr is no good he fits right in with the rest. This country belongs to them. Dose of reality….it is up to us to demand Justice….they are banking on the fact that we will not do nor have the ablity to organize to do it….heck they control whether the far left idiot terrorist organize and are responsible when they do. So there you have it…unless we do it….nothing will be done. Its all a show..

    “Japan hints US trade deal is reached
    Point man Motegi says Tokyo able to ‘protect agriculture’ ”

    If they protect ag, cars, and gain more access to our markets – what did we gain?

    Japan is now in a “Diet” period, so if we don’t sign a deal this month, which Japan can ratify, we have to wait a full year.

    Japan previously has said they will only go as far as the TPP outline. But then will we impose a 25% tariff on imported Japanese cars?

    For now, it appears we may get a moderate Trade Deal tomorrow: TPP levels on American ag imports; but no increase from the 2.5% auto tariff to 25% foe Japanese autos.

    My guess is Phase 2 happens after USMCA, Japan Deal 1, and UK deal finalize.

    Article 1, AutoBlog / Reuters

    “TOKYO — The United States and Japan have reached the broad framework of a trade agreement, with Washington maintaining tariffs on Japanese autos but Tokyo cutting tariffs on U.S. beef and pork, Japan’s Nikkei business daily said on Saturday.”

    Article 2

    BusinessTimes: Japan, US reach framework trade pact, no US concessions seen: report

    “Japan will cut its tariffs on US beef and pork to the levels applied to members of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, the Nikkei said. Mr Trump pulled America out of the TPP, which had been championed by his predecessor, Barack Obama.”

    “The United States will not cut the 2.5 per cent tariff it applies on Japanese autos for now but separate talks on those would continue, the Nikkei reported. It said Washington was “moving in the direction” of scrapping tariffs on some of the 400 types of Japanese car parts that Tokyo is seeking.”

    https://www.businesstimes.com.sg/government-economy/japan-us-reach-framework-trade-pact-no-us-concessions-seen-report

    SCMP

    ““There’s no doubt in my mind that the industry here should be concerned. The United States has a US$70 billion trade deficit with Japan and around US$50 billion of that is from autos. And it has been like that for the last five years at least.”

    Why Google Poses a Serious Threat to Democracy, and How to End That Threat
    -Testimony by Robert Epstein, Ph.D.(re@aibrt.org)
    -Senior Research Psychologist,
    -American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology
    -Before the United States Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution
    -Tuesday, June 16, 2019, 2:30 p.m

    .I am Dr. Robert Epstein, the proud father of five children, a resident of California,and Senior Research Psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology. I love America and democracy, andI am also not a conservative. I have been center/center-left my whole adult life. You’ll see in moment why this fact is relevant to my testimony.

    I am here today for three reasons: to explain why Google presents a serious threat to democracy and human autonomy, to explain how passive monitoring systems can protect us both now and in the future from companies like Google,and to tell you how Congress can immediately end Google’s worldwide monopoly on search. My plan for ending that monopoly was published just yesterday (Monday, July 15, 2019) by Bloomberg Business week (Epstein, 2019d).I am attaching a copy of my article to my testimony and respectfully request that it be entered into the Congressional Record.

    1.In 2016, biased search results generated by Google’s search algorithm likely impacted undecided voters in a way that gave at least 2.6 million votes to Hillary Clinton(whom I supported). I know this because I preserved more than 13,000 election-related searches conducted by a diverse group of Americans on Google, Bing, and Yahoo in the weeks leading up to the election, and Google search results –which dominate search in the U.S. and worldwide –were significantly biased in favor of Secretary Clinton in all 10 positions on the first page of search results in both blue states and red states.

    I know the number of votes that shifted because Ihave conducted dozens of controlled experiments in the U.S. and other countries that measure precisely how opinions and votes shift when search results favor one candidate, cause, or company. I call this shift “SEME” –the Search Engine Manipulation Effect. My first scientific paper on SEME was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) in 2015 (https://is.gd/p0li8V)(Epstein & Robertson, 2015a) and has since been accessed or downloaded from PNAS’s website more than 200,000 times.

    SEME has also been replicated by a research team at one of the Max Planck Institutes in Germany. SEME is one of the most powerful forms of influence ever discovered in the behavioral sciences, and it is especially dangerous because it is invisible to people –“subliminal,” in effect. It leaves people thinking they have made up their own minds, which is very much an illusion. It also leaves no paper trail for authorities to trace. Worse still, the very few people who can detect bias in search results shift even farther in the direction of the bias, so merely being able to see the bias doesn’t protect you from it.

    Bottom line: biased search results can easily produce shifts in the opinions and voting preference ofundecided voters by 20 percent or more –up to 80 percent in some demographic groups.
