News sources should hold credibility above sensationalism, just to begin with.
(SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.) - Fox News is not, and never has been, a legitimate news network. They began as a project by right-wing propagandist Rupert Murdoch and Republican media strategist Roger Ailes (1940 – 2017) to spread disinformation and promote GOP politicians.
Ailes, the late Fox News chairman and CEO of Fox News, once confessed that his network, despite its name, is not actually in the news business, once stating: “We’re competing with TNT and USA and ESPN.”
This fact may be more bad news to die-hard prohibitionists
(PORTLAND, Ore./ ICBC) - After decades of global prohibition, cannabis companies are making history as they move forward in our current international patchwork system of various cannabis laws and regulations.
With October 17th coming up quickly in Canada, we’ll see more and more history made as a G7 nation will legalize non-medical cannabis commerce for the first time, likely influencing other nations.
The El Toro Marine Corps base has left more than it's saga behind.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Irvine, California, is a pricey piece of California paradise on the surface, but underneath, a city of deadly cancer clusters, with a sea of toxic carcinogens flowing beneath its streets.
This is south Orange County, a place where people have plenty of money and success, but whether they know it or not, the people of Irvine are also part of a dirty, well kept secret.
I am opposed to any form of bigotry, hatred of Muslims is no exception.
(LONDON) - For the last three decades this genocidal war against Muslims and Arabs has intensified and become an official Western policy. This transition is the achievement of the Neocon school, who have attempted to redefine Zionism as the struggle for a promised planet instead of just a promised land.
Within the context of the global war we have declared on Muslims and Arabs on behalf of Zion, in the name of Coca Cola and Gay Rights, it is rational to expect that at some point Muslims may retaliate.

Trump has invited the bigots to speak and act openly
(SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.) - Just after the attack, Trump did offer condolences to those affected and did order the flag at the White House and all flags on public buildings, military posts, naval vessels, embassies abroad and other locations until sunset of the evening of the shooting.
However, a week after the shooting during a campaign-style rally in Montana, Trump was back to his old media bashing ways calling them "downright dishonest" and "really bad people".
An online casino requires grabbing your attention right away.
(SALEM, Ore.) - In an online casino, a Match Bonus is a bonus paid by the casino on depositing or wagering, normally equal to the amount of that deposit or wager. It's become pretty standard for online casinos to give their players bonuses as prizes.
You can have lots of free bonuses, usually as prizes or gifts while playing at an online casino, but the most bonuses are commonly offered for signing up in the first place and depositing some funds in your online casino account.

"Mister, I wouldn't have your job for a million dollars." I shook his hand and said, "Neither would I."
(USA) - War is the seminal event in the life of everyone that has endured it. Though I fought in Korea and the Dominican Republic and was wounded there, Vietnam was my war.
Now 42 years have passed and, thankfully, I rarely think of those days in Cambodia, Laos, and the panhandle of North Vietnam where small teams of Americans and Montangards fought much larger elements of the North Vietnamese Army. Instead I see vignettes: some exotic, some mundane...
A shaky future may be in store for many potential students.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Thanks to President Trump’s Administration recent travel restrictions, it is very likely that Oregon’s public universities are going to be adversely affected.
Essentially, there are around 180 students from international origin that will have issues in the future. These students are already enrolled on courses but renewing their visa status could cause no end of scrutinisation and possible refusal thanks to the travel ban.
Jewishness is a sophisticated survival strategy, a strict regulatory system of adherence.
(LONDON) - The Jewish press in Britain and around the world has seemed thrilled for the last few days.
“One of Britain’s most vocal anti-Semites” [apparently me] “was handed a humiliating court defeat in London on Monday” wrote The Jewish Algemeiner. On Twitter, Israel’s firsters wrote about me ‘grovelling’ at court.
China is the undisputed leader in global EV adoption
(LONDON / OilPrice.com) - When reports emerged that India and China are in talks about forming an oil buyers' club, OPEC was probably too busy with its upcoming June 22 meeting to concern itself with that dangerous alliance. Now, it may be time for it to start worrying.
"The timing is right. The boom in U.S. oil and gas production gives us greater leverage against OPEC," the Times of India quoted an Indian official as saying last month after the formal start of said talks.

(LINCOLN CITY, Ore..) - Last night, the Lincoln City Council joined a growing movement of Oregon leaders taking a stand against a federal offshore drilling proposal that would open the Pacific coast to new oil and gas leasing for the first time since 1984.

“President Trump proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin." - U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ)
(SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.) - By constantly belittling our European allies, recently undermining British Prime Minister Theresa May, threatening trade wars with them, Canada and China, undercutting NATO, failure to honor international agreements, Trump’s “America First” foreign policy is becoming an “America Alone” policy.
Trump went to Helsinki for a cozy two-hour one-on-one meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin.
Medical costs can best be managed with some planning.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Out-of-pocket healthcare costs are no joke. According to AARP, a healthy 65-year-old couple retiring in 2013 needed to budget $240,000 for lifetime healthcare costs, including out-of-pocket expenses.
That’s more than most people have in the bank when they retire.

Talk delivered at Deep Truth-Countering Deep State Lies (online conference)
(LONDON) - A healthy society doesn’t need a ‘truth movement.’ But we Americans, Brits, French and Germans are far from healthy and our so-called ‘truth movements’ haven’t led us towards any sources of light. The question is: Why?
One possible answer is that ‘truth movements’ are ideal environments for the operators of controlled opposition...

“America First” is slowly becoming “America alone.”
(SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.) - At the Group of Seven (G7) meeting on June 8, President Trump called for the readmission of Russia into the group.
Russia was tossed out of the Group after it annexed Crimea and intervened in the Ukraine and did so even after Russia intervened in the 2016 presidential election. Soon there will be only a de facto G6 Group.
