Surly,
You know, the way things are going, you may have to change the name of the Doomstead Diner Daily to the Dystopia Daily Dirge.

No sense in replicating the NYT or WaPo, or putting a happy face on onrushing climate catastrophe. Or singing a happy corpmedia tune.

SNIPPET:

Hirsch’s family came to Palestine 150 years ago from Russia. His people came to better worship God, not to take land from Palestinians. Hirsch told us about Jacob Israël de Haan, a Dutch-Jew who worked to prevent the 1917 Balfour Declaration and almost succeeded. The Balfour Declaration, issued by the British government, announced support for the establishment of a “national home for the Jewish people” in Palestine. De Haan was assassinated in Jerusalem by the Jewish paramilitary organization Haganah for his anti-Zionist political activities. His murder led to the Neturei Karta movement, which resists Zionism to this day.

Hirsch views Zionism as contradictory to the Jewish religion. His community believes the Torah does not allow Jewish sovereignty of any kind over the Holy Land and those who want to live there must have the approval of the native Palestinian people. Hirsch says that ultra-Orthodox Jews “want to see the end of the Zionist tragedy and the restoration of peace to the Middle East.” His views counter those who claim criticism of Israel is anti-Semitic as, he says, “Judaism and Zionism are as foreign to each other as day and night, good and evil.”

In re Trump, anything that emerges from his oral sphincter should be adjudged a lie simply based on past performance.

Speculation in this more truthful than anything that comes out of the White House.

Yes, I read that bit of wishful thinking by Palmer. Pompeo is a Kochroach, something that is like the roof for Palmer (over his head). Consequently, Palmer's grasp of the consequences of Trump this or that do not take that greater (i.e. US Government by Hydrocarbon Hellspawn) reality into account.

Trump is a symptom of the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn ROT destroying the U.S. government and dooming the biosphere as a Capitalists 'R' US bonus.

However, that does not mean the U.S. Economy won't be eaten alive by the Chinese economy prior to the full brunt of the Sixth Mass Extinction from the unabated (Capitalism caused) degradation of the biosphere. Palmer would vigorously disagree with me, since he thinks everything is gonna be just peachy if Trump and Pence go away and the Democrats take the White House. That is wishful thinking.

About 500 U.S. oligarchs calling virtually ALL the shots evidences that US foreign and domestic policy really IS GOVERNED BY CAPITALIST WISHFUL THINKING that is taking us, eventually, to Catastrophic Climate Chaos doom, but much sooner, to economic and political destruction.

The interconnectedness of all the life forms in our biosphere is something the Capitalists 'R' US studiously ignore (to our peril). Any part of the web of life that is damaged degrades all the other parts. This is Ecology 101.

Of course the 🐉 chemical, 🐍 mining and 🦕🦖 hydrocarbon hellspawn corporations have never been able to wrap their greedy, profit over people and planet heads around that basic, irrefutable reality.

I remember an old saying from the early days of environmental activism in the USA: "We all live downstream." We sure do. 😱

In regard to any and all industrial civilization activiies that allow pollution 😈 "externalities" for short term profit, we need to change NIMBY (not in my back yard) to NOPE, not on planet earth.

“Two centuries ago, a former European colony decided to catch up with Europe. It succeeded so well that the United States of America became a monster, in which the taints, the sickness and the inhumanity of Europe have grown to appalling dimensions” ― Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the Earth

All that said, as pathetic a wish as it is, I hold out hope for our country through a Sanders Presidency, provided both houses of Congress vote to support his policies. Again, I do not expect Palmer, a champion of all things Pelosi, to agree with me on that. However, Palmer is quite right about how dangerous Trump is for the USA. I applaud all his efforts to expose Trump's chicanery. That is why I post much of his impeachment commentary in this forum (Any port in the storm, and all that).

I yield the floor to Paul Street:
