Oxfam accused of Orgy's during the 2010 Haiti relief Effort

Haiti

Scribe: Lucy Osbourne

Email: lucy@thethinkering.com

 

Over half the word more than three billion people live on less than $2.50 per day. At least 80 percent of humanity live on less than $10 a day. Few organizations dedicated themselves to helping to solve the aggressive nature of poverty.

Oxfam is one of them.

According to their website Oxfam is a global organization working to end the injustice of poverty. However, the world has taken pause due to behavior in Haiti during the earthquake relief effort.

DC Hyperloop deal Inked

Hyperloop

Moving full speed to the future, the city of Washington D.C. and Elon Musk’s boring company have inked an agreement providing the go-ahead for the 800 mph underground tunnel that will transport both cars and trams.

The new transportation hub will allow for commuters to live in Manhattan and work in Philadelphia. The system is called a hyperloop. It will cover New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and DC. The average trip from DC to NYC would be 29 minutes at a cost of one-tenth the price. All involved admit the project is still in its early days. Musk has secured a nod from the White House and the State of Maryland. The first stretch would be completed between Baltimore and the nation’s capitol.

Welcome to the new.

REDEMPTION: ATONE FOR CRIME OF POVERTY IN AMERICA TODAY!

VOTE BABY VOTE!

 

America was founded by invading marauders, who over time systematically: murdered Native Americans, used underfed and underpaid Asians to build railroads, brought the institution of slavery to new horrific heights and cruelty, arrested Japanese American citizens and confined them in guarded camps (during World War II), turned ships back to Hitler’s Germany, that were carrying Jewish children (who were all murdered upon arrival back in Germany). Without fail Republicans continue to defund or underfund programs for our most vulnerable citizens [children, handicapped, disabled, elderly, working poor, folks of various faiths (not in lockstep with the white Christian males in Washington) and, of course, migrant workers and immigrants].

Russian Sanctions refused by Trump Administration

Barack Obama

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

 

The Trump administration has usurped the power of the congress and refused to impose sanctions against Russia despite lawmakers declaring it necessary by an overwhelming majority in mid-2017. A State Department official said, “Today, we have informed Congress that this legislation and its implementation are deterring Russian defense sales. Since the enactment of the . . . legislation, we estimate that foreign governments have abandoned planned or announced purchases of several billion dollars in Russian defense acquisitions.”

Did you get that?

Traditionally sanctions by their very notion represent a punishment for an action. It is usually placed as a method to counter adversarial behavior through economic lessening. I’m surely beginning to understand why my dear friend, “The Lady In The Bag,” calls this chump, King Trump.

Trump threat Andrew McCabe is Out

Andrew McCabe

America’s hand has never trembled more than it does now as yet another FBI higher up steps down. On Monday, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told his people that he is out. He was expected to leave for retirement in March, but changed his mind, likely due to pressure from his commander in chief. He had been a target of the White House over its entanglement with Russia and voter fraud or collusion.

McCabe was eligible to retire in march but with accumulated leave he was able to leave early, with no arguments from the Trump administration who are doing all that can be done to snip away the threat of truth.

Officials say Trump had nothing to do with the decision, and those close to the FBI say McCabe said that it was his call. He is being replaced by Assistant Deputy Director David Bowdich who will be the FBI’s acting deputy director.

US President Booed at Davos

Davos

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

Trump booed at Davos for attacking media during the three day long conference of 1 percenters. On Friday after a fake pro America speech during a q&a session Trump called the media “vicious, Mean and Fake” to a solid chorus of boos.

The New York businessman became a house hold face and name on the cover of tabloids during the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. While most American have become callous to the rhetoric, the rest of the world seems to abhor the sentiment. US presidents have traditionally been exponents of the media, and most have a quasi symbiotic relationship with the press. Despite the benefits this guy seems to hate the very institution that has made him successful.

The founder of the conference was also assaulted with boos after throwing a few jabs at the media, the three day long conference ended on Friday.

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

 

What is the Davos World Economic Forum? In 1971, Klaus Schwab formed a new foundation and planned the first academic, economic and management symposium. He was motived due to recently returning from a year at Harvard University and the desire to share his fresh expertise in US management systems with the world. The first forum was attended by 450 people looking for a business and academic advantage.

 

It grew quickly and was attended going forward by business leaders and later political leaders and is now considered the preeminent meeting for the 1 percenters. The forum is held in Davos, Switzerland, a small Alpine town with a normal population of about 10,000.

Lady in the Bag: Part I - What Would MLK Do and Say Today?

What would MLK do today

Scribe:  Lady In The Bag

Email:  lady@thethinkering.com

 

I have been called upon, by the universe, to channel MLK (THE Reverend) and assume (in my limited, humble capacity) the daunting task of portending Reverend King’s nonviolent approach to the current misguided folks who have forgotten America’s past promises and duty to protect ALL Americans (not just the select few). Any attempt to prognosticate what lies ahead would fail unless we remember the past, be present in the here and now and anticipate whats to come.
