The big election in Alabama has sent the wrong man to Washington.  Luther Strange,64, when down in smoke and flames as the Steve Bannon backed Roy Moore, now we know who the pulls the Klan’s coat tails. 

While Mr. Trump is proud to make statements about his followers loving him, the real grand poohbah has shown his hand in Alabama’s Senate race during the primary.  It appears that Stephen Bannon voice is a bit louder than the former reality television performer turned president with both men having a horse I the race for the vacant spot left by Jeff Sessions when he was tapped for the Federal job, US Attorney.  General. 

Bannon is and American media executive, political manipulator and chairman of the Derisive Breitbart News.  He also served a short time in the White House as its Chief Strategist (a made up position).

And they all Fall

And they all Fall

The political climate in the United States of American is at an all-time fevered pitch.   In a post Barack Obama era the political ideology of race is deeper than the skin. 

Over the weekend, the President did his level best to be divisive through attempting to put pressure on team owners to force players to stand for the national anthem and asking the owners to fire players for not taking the stance.   

Kneeling during the anthem became a thing when former Super Bowl quarterback Colin Kapernick, sat during a preseason game to bring attention to a visible rash of American police officers gunning down unarmed African American men, women and children without prosecution.   It seems to be an unopposable position.  But, not in today’s North America.

More than 200 dead, dozens of buildings collapse and millions without power.  A 7.1 magnitude earthquake shook up central Mexico after a warning shot last week off the coast.  People are still being found under ruble as emergency workers continue seek and rescue efforts. 

Many people are still missing and more being reported missing, including 20 school children as their school collapsed.  Devastation and misery abounds as rescue workers worked overnight trying to find the living.

Throughout the city cars stood still as the city reverberated.  Mexico City in on a dry lake bed and suffers more intensely than surrounding area. 

10,000 people died on this day 32 years ago as a 8.0 magnitude devastated the capitol city. 

Brave Mexican residents try and explain their circumstances when the tremors began.

Author Stephen King had words for one of Trumps latest social media message by encapsulating that it came from a Fu*k up Mind. 

The message came on Sunday when the sitting U.S. president retweeted a moving image of a golf ball hitting Hillary Clinton in the head a knocking her down.  It was a retweet from a user named, “Fuctupmind.”   The horror specialist, took the information as a play on words opportunity. 

Both during and after the 2016 presidential election King has expressed his disapproval of the Johnny-come-lately politician.  He once said of Trump having nuclear codes, “worse than any horror story I ever wrote.”

Can Nancy Pelosi save DACA

Nancy Pelosi

The Federal program called DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program for immigrant youth has been under attack since 5 September when the current administration decided to dump the program to save a few bucks. 

For more than 800,000 Americans this dumping of a federal program will be a difference maker.  In the summer of 2012 the Obama administration enacted the program for youth who arrived on these shores prior to the age of 16, offering them a solid footing as new Americans.   It offers eligibility for a work permit and deferred action from deportation

The program shows that DACA increased the wages and labor force participation of eligible immigrants.  Other reports suggest DACA reduced the number of unauthorized immigrant households living in poverty.

Monday marked the 16 anniversary of the of the 9/11 building collapse in lower Manhattan Comparatists have insisted the science speaks against a terrorist attack.   Most American’s feel the need to believe the fourth estates account of what happened on that fateful day in September so many years ago.
