The truth even the Right-Wing Goverment in Israel today need Hamas for it’s identity and survival. After all what can the Right-Wing do without Occupation, Settlers,Segregation and Palestinian Resistense? If none of this existed they’d have to invent it. Trump the chump is chasing his Nobel Prize. for doing nothing at all but creating FAKE NEWS (ODT)
The true objectives of more than half a century of Israel’s military occupation over the Palestinians are clearer in Hebron than anywhere else – to achieve Palestinian subjugation in a segregated and unequal reality.
If we were in 1950s Alabama, would Greenblattsay that a joint meal between white and black people was the way forward? Or would he recognise that the way to achieve equality is to end the legal system of discrimination and ensure the protection of equal rights? Hebron is no different – the only solution is the end to the occupation.

There really are no secrets here. In the end, Donald Trump clearly cares about nothing but himself (and perhaps his family as an extension of that self).
So read or listen to that first campaign speech again. Reintroduce yourself to Donald Trump presenting himself with naked honesty—with that single exception—and then consider the future for a moment. Whether in his first or second term (should he win again in 2020), if things start to head south economically, count on this: He’ll repeat his well-documented history and jump ship, leaving the American people, including that beloved base of his, holding the bag.
How Trumpland works compared with Obama (ODT)
A newly-leaked audio recording reveals that oil and gas executives in a private meeting were “giddy” with laughter in the summer of 2017 as they rejoiced over the “unprecedented access” they were being given to the highest levels of the Trump administration, boasting about their ability to have closed-door meetings with top officials and the ascendance of their own industry colleagues to some of the most powerful seats of government.
Trump has taken 4 companies and applied his inventive policies to them and sent them bankrupt those companies greatest success was screwing the lives of the people who were involved with them. Trump merely walked away. Mind you I bet he took money out first and left the debt. Nothing has changed really. (ODT)
A senior Trump administration official has told Bloomberg News that the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy would see its $2.3 billion budget slashed by about 70 percent, to $700 million, under President Donald Trump’s fiscal 2020 budget request, which will be released on Monday.
Conservative groups like the Heritage Foundation have called for the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, to be eliminated entirely, saying energy innovation is best left up to the private sector.
The President started out the week with this uncharacteristically mild comment.
“I cooperate all the time with everybody,” he told reporters on Monday, when asked if he’d answer the committee’s requests.
He added that he thought the probe was “a political hoax”.
But as the chatter about the probe grew, so did his fury.
By Tuesday the Democrats were “stone cold crazy”.
Despite saying he’d cooperate, the President can and probably will flex his executive privilege to block access to some of these documents.
So, yep, another lengthy court battle is likely.
Just another step in a long and complicated process.
Simply put Australian Conservatives are Racing to be American and we aren’t far behind this Failed Democracy (ODT)
As we look at the news coming out of America (or the tweets from the President) we are aggrieved that the country is more than ever gripped in the claws of racism, and even worse, that of a white supremacist society. Chicago-based activist Karla Thomas tells us of a country that is “erroneously predicated on white as ‘good’ and black as ‘bad’.”
There is no denying that America is strung collectively tight. Marginalised people have had an extra-large orange boot stepping on their backs, and they are rightfully angry. Immigrants, African Americans, people with disabilities, women, Muslims, and Indigenous people speak out in frustration and the Right, wavering centre and the oh-so-woke but not really Left, are all muting, ignoring, or tone policing their anger respectively. We are at war. And in the centre of this cauldron, there are some very triggered white folks who are tired of people insinuating that their actions have anything what so ever to do with racism.
