 There's precious little faith in the courts these days. Fundamentalists are destroying it.

 Alito Attacks Marriage Equality, COVID Orders, and Reproductive Rights in Speech

(Chris Walker, 

"Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito delivered an impassioned and alarming speech on Thursday evening that touched on a number of hot-button political issues — an unusual move from a Supreme Court justice that provoked sharp rebukes from a number of legal experts.

The justice’s words, delivered virtually as a keynote speech to the right-wing Federalist Society, made suspect warnings over encroachments on individual liberty in the United States. Alito criticized Supreme Court rulings on marriage equality, for example, and discussed his concerns over restrictions being issued by state governments in order to deal with the coronavirus pandemic."

The United States of America is a cult. A set of strongly held beliefs based on myths and falsehoods. Its politics is simply a cult of personality. Our soap opera news services provide puerile entertainment, devoid of meaningful content, while moneyed interests pull on the strings of power without scrutiny or accountability. We no longer even expect our politicians to represent their constituents. 

The long anticipated corporate coup is here. If you don't like what your government is doing, blame the corporate donors that control it. And if you're hoping that law and order will save you from the ravages of criminal overreach, well, good luck asking cult members, with lifetime appointments, to curb abuses of power.

 The RNC and DNC are cynical mechanisms oligarchs use to con you into believing you're participating. Kamala Harris will likely, perhaps shortly, be our president. Biden was a prop, and not a convincing one. She dropped out of her primary before the orchestrated mass exodus, because her numbers were abysmal. So, someone who left the primary due to lack of interest in her campaign, will more than likely be our president. That's what happens when corporations are the parties. They do not run party elections like a company, they are companies. They love taking your money, but they only pay attention to the billionaires.

It's time to stop supporting the Duopoly!

We're looking at Billions of People not being able to Survive'

- Peter Carter, Expert IPCC Reviewer

(Extinction Rebellion interview on YouTube)

"Peter Carter, M.D. and Roger Hallam discuss the science and ethics with regards to climate emergency for all of us struggling to understand what's actually going on, what needs to happen and what we need to do.

Every month now records and disasters are happening and we don't have the time to sit around and pretend it's all going to go away – because it's not and Peter’s mission now is to spread the full terrible truth about the extreme risks and magnitude of the global climate and ocean disruption emergency.

Peter Carter, M.D. is a retired family physician who practised medicine first in England and then on both coasts of Canada (in Newfoundland and British Columbia) for almost 40 years.

When his sons were born, Peter became actively involved in peace, environmental and sustainable development issues, especially as they relate to children's health. (Fatherhood created that urge to leave the world a better place as a legacy for his children.)

As a founding director of CAPE (Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment) and, more recently, as founder of the Climate Emergency Institute, Peter has presented on sustainable development, environmental health policy, biodiversity, and climate change and ocean issues at international science and climate change conferences in Canada, the United States, Europe, Asia and South America.

Peter has been following the global warming and climate change research since 1988. His approach to assessing climate change is based on environmental health and human rights protection. He provides climate science information to several websites and organizations, and synthesizes climate change research for laypeople.

Peter was an expert reviewer for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Climate Change Assessment (AR5, 2014) and the IPCC’s 2018 Special Report on 1.5ºC. Also in 2018, Peter published Unprecedented Crime: Climate Science Denial and Game Changers for Survival, which he co-authored with Elizabeth Woodworth."
