Hillary Loves Yoga!
I couldn't imagine anything being more persuasive for OEN viewers, as far as of embarking on a sincere investigation of the realm of the spirit, than knowing that Hillary Clinton (herself!) is a full-fledged convert to the wonderful world of meditation. And, as unambiguous proof of that fact, here she is praising yoga to the skies and demonstrating one of the more esoteric practices of that discipline.

My Utterly Baseless Conspiracy Theory Regarding the Cancellation of "House of Cards"
Having no inside information, and after having done virtually no research on the matter, I have a theory as to why Kevin Spacey's career is being utterly destroyed. Personally, I've never really liked Spacey. He's always struck me as an arrogant, egotistical so and so. But there is no denying that he is a transcendentally gifted actor, and with "House of Cards", he became a bona fide cultural force.

New York Times Has No Coverage of Clinton's Takeover of the DNC
I believe the story broke in the Huffington Post early yesterday, so there should have been more than enough time for the Times to feature at least something in today's paper about the Clinton Presidential campaign arranging to pay the DNC's monthly bills, and effectively taking control of the party in 2015.

Original 1983 Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughn "In Session" PBS Special
"At the time this pair met in a Canadian TV studio, Vaughan was blazing a trail into the blues world with his debut album, Texas Flood. King was long since a legend, and though he apparently didn't recognize the name "Vaughan," he immediately recognized the young guitarist who'd sat in with him whenever he played in Austin. The video dimension turns this session into a master class for both Vaughan and the viewer.

PBS Documentary: "Islam, the Empire of Faith"
This should really be required viewing for everyone in the western hemisphere. I just happened to take it out of my local library. Despite some prior knowledge of the basic origins of Islam, it was with Part II that I got my first glimpse of a truly alternative history of the entire world.

"This Latest Obamacare Repeal Effort Actually Has a Real Shot to Pass"
Chris Hayes 9/15/17 This segment of "All In with Chris Hayes" is quite chilling. Apparently McConnell & Co have devised an ingenious way to pass the repeal of Obamacare the fourth time around. Mr. Hayes summarizes the most recent attempt which must pass in three weeks in order to avoid the requirement becoming 60 votes in the Senate at the end of September as opposed to the current simple majority.

Bob Dylan's Nobel Prize Lecture
Bob Dylan's 2016 Nobel Prize lecture. The lecture was a requirement for him receiving the prize (or at least the prize money...) Otherwise I'm pretty sure he would never have gone to the trouble.
How the Establishment Gave Us Trump
Jimmy Carter recently gives a genuinely brilliant explanation of how we got Trump, and the host of the cable show does an admirable job of expounding on Carter's perspective.

Congressman Eric Swalwell vs President Trump
I happened to turn on the Congressional hearings with FBI Director Comey when a Congressman from California named Eric Swalwell was questioning the Director. I was quite stunned by not only how many more connections Trump has with Russia than I was previously aware, but also by just how fearless and aggressive this fellow was in hammering Comey.
The Inaugural Address and Enduring Question of Real Change in America
In a recent interview with Charlie Rose, on at least two separate occasions, Sen. Bernie Sanders called Donald Trump "A very strange man." I don't believe that he was saying this in the sense that many on the left would assume, i.e. that Trump is simply a narcissistic, self-promoting con man and buffoon.
Perhaps It's the Nobel Prize That Doesn't Deserve Bob Dylan
It just seems a bit odd to me that the controversy revolving around Bob Dylan being awarded the 2016 Nobel Prize for literature should stop short of what seems to me a far more interesting question: does Dylan's cultural import and significance actually transcend the award altogether?

Cornel West: "This is Going to be the Most Trying of Times in Our Lifetime"
President-elect Donald Trump has announced a handful of new cabinet picks with deep ties to Wall Street. On Tuesday, he named Steven Mnuchin to be Treasury Secretary. Mnuchin is a former executive for Goldman Sachs, where his father also worked. Mnuchin's hedge fund also played a role in the housing crisis, after it scooped up the failing California bank IndyMac in 2008.
Steve Pieczenik Brags About Stealing the Election
After warning Americans that the FBI, CIA, NYC Police, and other intelligence and law-enforcement agencies would not tolerate another Clinton administration, Dr. Steve Pieczenik apparently couldn't help but gloat about having achieved their objectives.
Is This Possible?
Dr. Steve Pieczenik claims that Hillary and Bill Clinton are attempting a takeover of the United States and will stop at nothing. A coup d'e'tat of this magnitude has never been effected in such a subtly calculated way. And he explains the resistance he claims to be a part of.

Ralph Nader Talks About His New Book, "Breaking Through Power"
One of The Atlantic's hundred most influential figures in human history, Nader has been instrumental in the founding of scores of citizens groups as well as in the establishment of watchdog agencies including OSHA and the EPA. In dozens of books since his 1965 Unsafe at Any Speed, Nader has worked to educate and empower consumers. His latest call to action is an inspiring look at American citizens who have organized and waged.

Photos from the Beginning of Time
By pushing NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to its limits, an international team of astronomers has shattered the cosmic distance record by measuring the farthest galaxy ever seen in the universe. This surprisingly bright infant galaxy, named GN-z11, is seen as it was 13.4 billion years in the past, just 400 million years after the Big Bang. GN-z11 is located in the direction of the constellation of Ursa Major.
Bernie Sanders is the Most Powerful Politician in America
Sanders, in just one short year, by sheer force of character and moral will, has gone from being a marginal, virtually unknown "fringe" candidate for President of the United States, to the most powerful politician and influential political leader in this country.

Charlie Rose's Astonishing New Web Site
I've had a love/hate relationship with the "Charlie Rose" show for decades now. I think he represents what is the best, and what's most lacking in TV journalism.

The "Anyone But Sanders" Movement
I think there are few things which illustrate the actual state of politics in this country better than the Debbie Wasserman Schultz resignation.

How About Screening Out Homicidal Cops?
We're looking for background checks before selling firearms to anyone who walks off the street. Why not require the same for cops who would be carrying firearms as well?

What on Earth Was She Hiding?
One aspect of the email scandal which hasn't gotten any scrutiny is: What was Hillary so scared of coming to light in her emails that she would compromise top secret government documents in order to protect her own?
If we go back to her own original rationale for using a private server rather than a government one, it was to make sure none of her private emails became public.

Some Down-to-Earth Advice From a Far-Out Psychic
Psychic and Medium Danielle Egnew gets point-blank about the 2016 presidential election and it's role in the evolution of consciousness -- WHY certain candidates are in play, WHAT they each represent, WHO advances into the Presidency, and the MUCH bigger picture of what's going on, from an energetic, social and spiritual perspective.

Does Obama Know Clinton's Glory Days are Numbered?
This may well be far-fetched. But after watching the H. A. Goodman video, in which Goodman states that the evidence cannot lead to anything other than an indictment (or at the very least a crippling FBI report) and that everyone in the Department of Justice is well aware of this, mustn't we assume that this would also include President Obama?
Primary Election Fraud Lawsuit That Could Change Everything
This video was just posted a few days ago. The host may be a bit obnoxious, but what he is reporting on is well worth watching. Apparently the two lawyers who contributed to stopping the 2012 presidential election from being stolen, Cliff Arnebeck and Bob Fitrakis, are on the verge of exposing this year's primary election fraud, and perhaps in so doing change the whole outcome.
The Struggle Continues: A Campaign Memo From Bernie Sanders
But you know that what we are doing is about more than Bernie Sanders. It is all of us together. It is what this movement is about. It is millions of people from coast to coast standing up and looking around them and knowing that we can do much, much better as a nation.
