The U.S. is past the point of no return. Even though the system is stained with blood, it will not and it cannot self-correct. And certainly it will not through the political process, which only rearranges the deck chairs. It will have to totally collapse.

I have been warning about getting overly enthusiastic about oil prices for a while now. And the big reason is, the diminishing power of OPEC. For decades OPEC, led by Saudi Arabia (SA) has been the global mover and shaker of oil prices. But that day is swiftly passing.
President Donald Trump was able to successfully usher his healthcare repeal legislation through the House last week despite lingering objections from many Republicans.

Former President Barack Obama is getting a great deal of criticism for taking $400,000 for a forthcoming speech to a group of Wall Street fat cats. And if some lawmakers get their way, Obama’s seeming hypocrisy could cost him and future presidents.
SCOTUS this week struck down a Colorado law that forced criminal defendants to prove their innocence when their convictions were overturned. While the case didn’t involve civil forfeiture per say, it may be the beginning of the end for this heinous practice. Tthe majority opinion stated the defendants were entitled to the presumption of innocence and “should not be saddled with any proof burden” to regain what is rightfully theirs.
Conservatives are growing increasingly perturbed by the Trump administration’s seeming willingness to give in to Democrat demands as it advances its ambitious agenda. The repeated concessions have some pundits and lawmakers openly questioning why, with a governing majority, GOP campaign promises keep getting watered down.
Reports indicate that government bureaucrats are using the security clearance process to block key members of the Trump administration from accessing sensitive national security information.

I wonder whether Apple has stopped being the ‘It’ company that it was 10 years ago. Now it seems like a typical huge tech firm that makes iterative rather than innovative products. Gone are the days of the iPod and iPhone being new. It’s now more a cult of personality.
Ninety-six years ago this month — and 80 years before 9/11 — a terror attack took place in America’s heartland. Unlike 9/11, the dates May 30-June 1, 1921 are not marked by a national remembrance. No bells are tolled for the victims, and there is no moment of silence.
Universities, once the beacon of western enlightenment, have fallen drastically from a century ago when an English author Beatrice Evelyn Hall claimed these words belonged to the great French philosopher Voltaire: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

War hawks at the highest levels of U.S. government have in recent years increasingly advocated for ratcheting up military tensions between the U.S. and countries capable of striking the homeland. Why advocate such foreign policy recklessness? Why Not? The taxpayers have them covered.

Trump, at the very onset of his administration, broke one of his most important campaign promises — to “drain the swamp.” Instead, he filled his cabinet with all of the same swamp creatures he originally attacked; the same swamp creatures Hillary Clinton was notorious for serving.

Remember the anger at the political establishment that was supposed to reshape the Washington establishment following the Tea Party sweep in Congress? Things were supposed to change—but the situation has only gotten worse.
