Trump and Climate Change: Making America Small Again

by Seth Ferris, New Eastern Outlook:
So he did it. Donald Trump has pulled out of the Paris Climate Change Agreement, thus refusing to abide by the clauses most of the world has signed up to. He has thus put the US in the same camp as Syria, which can’t very well stop a lot of carbon emissions at the moment, and Nicaragua, which has refused to sign for the opposite reason to Trump – it doesn’t think it goes far enough to protect countries affected by global warming, such as its own.

Trump does not believe that climate change is real, though some shocking distortion of biological reality must have turned his skin that colour. He also sees China getting away with not abiding by existing emissions agreements, and claims he wants to bring back all the old industrial jobs he believes have been lost to China. So it makes to sense to him that the US should be free to foul up the planet for everyone else in order to Make America Great Again.

This Dirt Cheap Ancient Spice Fights Cancer and Improves Blood Circulation

by Jhoanna Robinson, Natural News:
Cayenne pepper, whose color can range from yellow to reddish-brown, has been used by households all over the world to add flavor and a little bit of heat to dishes for a while now – around a thousand years now. But did you know that eating cayenne on a regular basis can help your body fight cancer-causing elements and make it so that there is a steady and healthy flow of blood in your body?

Cayenne is one of the hottest members of the pepper family, racking up a good 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville heat units (SHU) in the Scoville scale, along with Tabasco. The hottest in the pepper family is the Carolina reaper with 1,400,000 to 2,200,000 SHU, which is closely followed by the Trinidad scorpion with 1,200,000 to 2,000,000 SHU. The mildest of them is the bell pepper, which has no Scoville heat units.

House of Cards

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:
Despite unrealistic plots and weak characterization (except for Francis Urquhart), Michael Dobbs’ books, House of Cards, Play the King, and The Final Cut were best sellers that provided the basis for a long-running TV series.

I haven’t seen the films, but I have read the books. I conclude that plot and characters are mere props for the didactic lesson of the novels: Democratic politics is concerned only with power and sex. Nothing else is in the picture. There is no such thing as a politician concerned with the people’s well being or capable of marital fidelity. The media are as bad as the politicians. Female journalists use their bodies for access to power and become accomplices in political intrigues. Idealism is merely another vehicle used in the competition for power.

Would You Like To Steal 128 Million Dollars?

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
What would you do with 128 million dollars? Many people like to daydream about winning the lottery, and I have to admit that when I was much younger I would do the same thing. If you were suddenly financially set for life, you could quit your job, buy your dream home, travel the world and spend your days doing whatever you felt like doing. We only get one trip through this crazy journey called life, and an enormous mountain of cash could make the journey a whole lot nicer. So if you could steal 128 million dollars and be absolutely certain that you could get away with it, would you do it?

You would probably be surprised at how many people out there would answer that question affirmatively. Money is a very powerful motivator, and if the fear of getting caught was out of the equation a lot of people out there would certainly be willing to “bend the rules” for a cool 128 million dollars.
