King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia held oil prices at bay during this life by not imposing a pumping ceiling on oil.  He continued to pump despite his western counterparts insisting that he slow his oil ingestion to insure a price hike for gasoline buyers in the United States and worldwide.

In early 2015, King Abdullah died and the kingdom continued to support his efforts during his life to the dismay of western oil companies.  However, a natural disaster, hurricane Harvey, the excuse to raise prices finally arrives, a full two years eight months later.

Op/Ed

 

The Berlin wall was sometimes called the wall of shame; it was 87 miles of barrio that stood until 1989.  It separated East Berlin and West Berlin represented the reunification of Europe when the wall fell. 

Communist East Berlin was separated from Democratic West Berlin and the end of the wall ended the cold war.  The wall was 11.8 feet high and separated two nation states--separating brothers and sisters, mothers and daughters just as the proposed wall on the Southern Border of the United States would.

As post hurricane waters continue to rise a chemical company is warning of an explosion.   The France based company says because of the heavy rainfall the company was forced to shut off power and the backup generators flooded ultimately causing chemicals that should be refrigerated to explode or burn. 

The plant is located approximately 20 miles from the city of Houston and has been inundated with rain water recording from than 40 inches.  The plat manufactures organic peroxides commonly used in everyday products, like PVC piping, paints, polystyrene cups and plates.

On Thursday morning overnight one reporter claims to have seen a plume of black smoke over the plant.  Residents within 1.5 miles of the facility have been evacuated and the FAA closed air traffic near the site.  The owner of the plant sentiment is not if it will explode by when.

Harvey Confirm Global Warming?

Hurricane Harvey, Houston East SIde

Is there a link between aggressive storms like Harvey and Global Warming?  The deadly storm reignited the conversation about global warming, a phenomenon the Whitehouse flatly denies. 

As flooding continues to devastate the Houston and south Texas area rising temperatures are plaguing the world.  The City of Los Angeles is experimenting with painting surface streets a lighter color in the hopes it would aid in lowering the median temperature. 

Scientists have stood by the ideology that while climate change increases frequency and severity of extreme weather, no single event could be attributed to it.

Mavis Wanczyk is the lucky winner of the second largest lottery prize in United States history.  $758m Powerball jackpot led her to calling the hospital where she worked and informed them that she would not be coming back. 

The newly rich Chicopee, Massachusetts woman said she was just starting to come down from the shock of the win.  In a recent interview she said, “Last night, it was kind of like — I didn’t realize I had won.”  She continued, “Now,” she said, “it’s like — I am a winner, and I’m scared. But I’ll be okay.”  She later said that her pipe dream finally came true. 

The 52-year-old woman says she just wants to be alone and excited to be able to be herself.

Jewish Community responds to Trump White Sepratism

Jewish Protest

Heather Heyer was an American woman who stood for the good of the land.  In the face of angry white men, she stood her ground and another organization is recognizing her sacrifice by cancelling a traditional meeting with an American president. 

Four groups of rabbis said they would not make the annual call to mark the Jewish holidays due to the sitting president’s statements in the wake of Ms. Heyers’ tragic killing was, "so lacking in moral leadership and empathy,” that the meeting would not take place. 

Trump was condemned for his pro-racist support at the time of the tragedy. 

Neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, the Concerned Citizen Council and many other far right wingers took part in a torch-lit rally shouting racist and anti-Semitic slogans in the town in which the author of “Thirty-years a Slave” Louis Hughes was born in 1832.

Michael the Black man - Trump's resident black man

Michael the Blackman

I’m not one to ignore the elephant in the room.  There was a black man planted behind Trump on Wednesday night in Arizona.  His name according to his T-shirt at previous functions is “Michael the Blackman.” 

Last night he donned a shirt that read, “TRUMP & Republicans Are Not Racist.”  Truth is with fifty million Black folk in the United States surely it is not difficult to find a fool who would sell his soul for a few pence.  However, this does not mean the current president have a following in the African American community.  Trump is again reaching back to his time as a reality television host. 

As for Michael the blackman, as a young man I remember my grandmother saying, “A man that stands for nothing will fall for anything.

An American Experiment in Hypocrisy: Working Class and Poor whites Losing

Working Class and Poor whites losing under Trump

Op/Ed

 

Trump’s approval rating is in the dumps.  At 34% most Americans thinks he is a terrible leader and based on the most recent Gallup polls he is less popular in his first term than his predecessor was through eight years. 

While Gallup admitted it nearly impossible to pinpoint why the rating is so low, however being in the news for the past few weeks facing the consequences of irratic behavior could have some bearing. 

He was confusing on North Korea policy; he was criticized for taking a vacation almost weekly costing taxpayers more than $3 million per trip to his luxurious Mar-a-Lago property in Florida.   His giving’s to being a racists and Nazi supporter certainly didn't’t bolster confidence in most Americans.
