Trump's Iceberg of Scheming and Evil Explicitly and overtly, on the surface Donald Trump is, perhaps the worst presidential criminal, the worst presidential liar, but also the most repetitive and prolific liar, again, perhaps, in history. But that is all what we are being allowed to see. We can be one hundred percent certain that it is but the tip of the iceberg, that Trump is criminally, predatorily and unethically using all the resources at his command:

Dangerous EU Regulation Threatens Future of the Internet; Could Be An Act of War A European Union committee has recommended that a regulation be put in place that would stifle a huge portion of the functions of the internet. This idea is clearly inspired by corporate interests but its effects would be so devastating to the use of the internet as we know it that it amounts to a fascist attack against the bottom-up democracy, freedom and re-distribution of power that the internet has brought to the world.

Is Ocasio-Cortez Win a Black Swan Event? Nassim Nicholas Taleb's hugely successful book argues that black swan events often play major roles in history, citing 9/11 and the invention of the internet as examples. I believe it is reasonable to characterize Ocasio-Cortez's win as a black swan event. That means that it could play a major role in history. It could open the sluice gates to Berniecrat victories and defeats of old-school Clinton DLC corporatist Democrats.

Building Community Through the Arts, at Oggi Chicago This weekend I attended an extraordinary event at an amazing new place, Oggi Chicago, which opened October 22, 2017. Oggi is a blend of art studio, gallery, community arts and gathering place. I've woven together some youtube videos from some of the artists so you can sample the flavor of the sounds.

What do Psychopaths, Sociopaths and Narcissists Think About Trump I'd expect them to love Trump. He's setting new precedents making it okay to do the kinds of things that psycho/sociopaths do, such as:

The Twilight Zone Metaphor for Evangelicals' Jerusalem Fantasy When I explain the tie between Christian Zionists and the Israelis who are so enamored with them, I usually tell a story from Rod Serling's Twilight Zone that explains the relationship perfectly.

What's Next? #POSPOTUS Trump Bypasses Senate, Appoints Koch to Supreme Court? Today, Donald Trump removed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and appointed David Koch to replace her, bypassing previous laws and the process of senate approval. Okay. That hasn't happened yet. But we're creeping towards that situation with Trump bypassing the Dodd Frank legislation which made it clear that there was a succession path for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB.)

Trump's Attack on Net Neutrality-- A Step Towards Feudalism Let's be clear. The plan to end net neutrality is not about the just the net. The internet is the biggest power leveling factor in modern western industrial world history. The attack on net neutrality is an attempt to claw back all the power that the Bottom up nature of the internet has given to individuals, groups and non-state actors.

What's the Connection? Al Franken's Accuser Leeann Tweeden and Sean Hannity Here's some added perspective to the Al Franken / Leeann Tweeden narrative. Leeann Tweeden has accused Franken of forcibly kissing her. Franken has apologized and she accepted his apology. But there's more to this story that the MSM is not showing. Tweeden is not a neutral party, politically. She's been a repeat guest on the Sean Hannity show.

MegaPlatforms; The Biggest Monsters, Besides Billionaires and Megacorporations They were supposed to liberate us. They were supposed to empower us. And in some ways, they've done some part of that. But the mega-platforms-- Google, Facebook, Amazon, Yahoo, Apple, Microsoft and UBER, in particular, are also very dangerous to our future and incredibly exploitive. They are profoundly top down in doling out services and controlling data.

"Blue Wave" Open Thread Yeah, yeah. It was a blue wave. The Democrats will take all the credit. I say it was a wave of anti-Trump fervor, not pro-Democrat.

Election Day Tests Democratic Party, not Trump Today we'll see just how bad the Democratic party is. My prediction is that the DNC and Democratic leaders will fail, or, at best, scrape by. Today, for a healthy political opposition party going up against a party led by Donald Trump, with his 58% negative polling, should be a massive victory. But polls are not predicting anything close to that.

Brazile Revelations Make it Clear. Obama, Hillary & DNC Cost Dems Senate, White House, SCOTUS There's no way to spin around the fact that the collusion of Obama, Hillary, the DNC and Democratic leaders cost Democratic voters and the world the White House, the Senate, the Supreme Court and maybe even the House of Representatives, not to mention scores of judiciary appointments. Donna Brazile has revealed that the Clintons basically bought full control of the DNC, with control over key appointments and decisions.
