While there has certainly been growth in both our economy and our government, the question often arises – “Does the government have our best interest in mind?” A government that focuses on its people is the ultimate goal of any democracy .
In all the chatter during the 2016 election campaign about the neglected and overlooked people in the country, precious little was said about the tens of millions of people over 50 who are in desperate or near-desperate financial straits. And maybe that makes sense, because these people have been neglected and overlooked for so long they are barely part of any conversation.

Sometime before Inauguration Day, President-elect Trump will be briefed on the American plan for nuclear war, inclusive of the role he plays in ordering nuclear weapons release (i.e., the “nuclear codes”.) John F. Kennedy was the first American president briefed on this plan, back in 1961. Afterwards, a shaken Kennedy told his Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, “And we call ourselves the human race.” President Nixon was similarly appalled. “No matter what we do,” he told his National Security Council, “they the Soviets lose their cities…what a decision.” Ninety million Soviets would die in an American nuclear strike, Nixon was told. And ninety million Americans would die in a Soviet retaliation
Stock market cycles are something of an enigma — if investors generally know they exist, why don’t they get out at the peaks, and buy back in when the market is down? The better you understand the dynamics of market cycles, the better you can take advantage of them rather than being victimized by them. What makes up a stock market cycle?

Questions and Controversy Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), President-Elect Donald J.
WASHINGTON ― No sir, you cannot sue the Senate over its unprecedented obstruction of the president’s Supreme Court nominee. That’s what a federal judge ruled Thursday in dismissing the case of a New Mexico citizen who sued Sens.

The United States was born 240 years ago with a shield that proclaimed, “Peace, Independence, Liberty.” It marked an inflection point in the human narrative. For thousands of years, mankind had exalted warriors and nations who turned children into orphans, wives into widows, and had fathers bury sons rather than sons bury fathers in chronic wars for the sake of power, riches and the adolescent thrill of domination. Our forefathers, in contrast, risked their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to give birth to a nation whose glory was liberty and whose march was the march of the mind.
I’m desiring to respond to everything that’s happened in the last week, and yet I’ve been struggling to respond at the same time. While I tend to stay away from politics, I’ve seen so many posts, articles and physical and verbal actions hurting each other and making each other wrong, I feel a pull to come forward.
At COP22 In Morocco, Secretary Of State John Kerry Affirms U.S. Commitment To Address Climate Change
Secretary of State John Kerry reaffirmed the US commitment to addressing global climate change here at the UN climate conference in Marrakech, Morocco. Marrakech serves as host city for the 22nd Conference of Parties ( COP22 ) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change ( UNFCCC ). The world must now wait to see if the incoming Trump administration will honor those commitments, or if the US will become a rogue nation that denies the very existence of climate change as a hoax “created by and for the Chinese to make US manufacturing less competitive.” Once inaugurated, Trump will stand as THE ONLY head-of-state who denies the science of climate change.

It has been almost a week and I am still not prepared for President Trump. I was sure that Hillary Clinton had it in the bag. I had convinced myself that Donald Trump’s arresting, but toxic, message, his misogyny and rage against the “other”, together with his general lack of discipline, organization or depth would do him in.

Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani on Sunday claimed that the wave of protests against President-elect Donald Trump are “exaggerating the fears” of his presidency, despite an increase in acts of racism and bigotry since the election Tuesday. “I feel very bad about that,” Giuliani said on ABC’s “This Week,” addressing the protests.

WASHINGTON, Nov 11 (Reuters) – The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, already in legal limbo after an October court decision, could find its powers scaled back by President-elect Donald Trump and a Republican-led Congress, according to members of both political parties, lobbyists and lawyers. That may mean the end of many of the agency’s rule-making actions that have enraged critics, including a proposal to stop companies from blocking customers from class action lawsuits and another one to limit payday lending

Prologue I received an email from a connection in the art world, putting me in touch with the organization of an artist in Brussels.

With just six words, “We have not changed our conclusions,” FBI Director James Comes may have ensured a perilous victory for Hillary Clinton. The hotly contentious review of newly discovered State Department-related e-mails, this time unaccountably on the laptop of one of the ultimate security risks, repeatedly disgraced ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner, ended as it began
When Donald Trump was one of 17 candidates vying for the Republican nomination, he was asked about autism at a debate in September 2015. Trump put the blame squarely on vaccines: “You take this little beautiful baby, and you pump — I mean, it looks just like it’s meant for a horse, not for a child, and we’ve had so many instances, people that work for me, just the other day …

Eleven years ago this August I was deployed in Iraq with the Lima Company combat unit, and recently, I reunited with my fellow Marines to commemorate the anniversary.

Here’s what science says about populism, the rise of Donald Trump, and how to heal a fractured country
Whoever wins the US presidential election will have to govern for the whole of the country. Carlos Barria/Reuters Pascal Molenberghs , Monash University People around the world are stunned at the rise of Donald Trump – from complete outsider to Republican nominee for the US presidential election, in what might yet turn out to be a close race to the White House. At the start of campaigning for nomination, almost nobody gave Trump a chance
FBI Director James Comey’s brief letter to eight Congressional committee chairpersons updating them that that the FBI would investigate further emails from Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton found on the computer of her aide’s husband, Anthony Weiner, has shifted the Presidential polls. FBI director James Comey feared “being misunderstood,” but surely he knew that Mr. Trump and partisan media would swing into full conspiracy theory combat.
Hours after saying he had advance knowledge of the FBI’s plans to review additional emails tied to Hillary Clinton , Rudy Giuliani backpedaled on Friday, claiming he knew nothing about leaks from the bureau. Giuliani, the Donald Trump surrogate who revealed in a bombshell Friday morning interview that the FBI was secretly trying to help Trump’s campaign, contradicted himself Friday evening on CNN. “I have spoken to no current FBI agents, gosh, in the last eight months, nine months, 10 months, certainly not about this,” the former New York mayor told Wolf Blitzer on “The Situation Room.” He said “ surprises ” he had referred to in his earlier interview didn’t include the FBI’s email disclosure, but instead meant to hint at a last-minute advertising blitz by Trump’s campaign. Giuliani’s comments on CNN are at odds with those he made earlier on “Fox & Friends.” In the Fox appearance, Giuliani seemed to confirm the FBI leaked information about its email investigation to Trump’s campaign before FBI Director James Comey disclosed it publicly a week ago.

This Natural Disaster Assistance Law Is Why Other States Are Policing Dakota Access Pipeline Protests
Cross-Posted from DeSmogBlog Almost exactly 20 years ago, President Bill Clinton signed into law a bill creating an interstate agreement for emergency management. That inconspicuous law has opened the door for the current flood of out-of-state law enforcement agents present at the continuing protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) in North Dakota.
If you’ve heard common student-loan horror stories, you might think that borrowing for school will leave you owing six figures, facing arrest for failure to pay and shackling your family to your debt even if you die. But those are extreme cases. Student loans are a smart career investment as long as you borrow in moderation and graduate.
Former Attorney General Eric Holder: FBI Director James Comey ‘Violated’ Justice Department Policies
Criticism of FBI Director James Comey ratcheted up dramatically late Sunday as he faced both a rare public rebuke by the former attorney general who once oversaw him and the first call for his resignation by a member of Congress. Comey has been at the center of a political storm since issuing a vaguely worded letter on Friday ― 11 days before the election ― that indicated the FBI was reviewing more emails that could be related to its probe of Hillary Clinton ’s use of a private email server. In an op-ed for The Washington Post, former attorney general Eric Holder charged that Comey’s letter had “violated long-standing Justice Department policies and tradition,” and he called on the FBI director to “ dispel the uncertainty he has created before Election Day.

The import series Brief Encounters proves again that while British actresses often seem as prim as their country’s reputation, they also love a chance to get naughty every so often. You could call Brief Encounters a period piece of sorts, since it’s set in the early 1980s, but this is a very different sort of costume drama. The outfits here run toward skimpy underwear, the type popularized in Britain by Ann Summers
A common question I get is “How do I get a bank loan to fund my startup?” The default answer is that it probably won’t happen, because most banks just don’t make bank loans to startups. The failure rate is just too high, and startups typically don’t have the assets or revenue stream to back up the loan. That’s why Angel investors are so sought after by entrepreneurs
