Besides, he’s not a career politician, and to make good on his promises …

NEW SHOW ALERT: The Conspiracy Guy – 12.21.16

The Conspiracy Guy #4: It has been astonishing to see a conspiracy theory being touted by the Director of the CIA to attempt to sway Trump electors from casting their votes for the candidate who won their states, but the evidence shows that he has been aided and abetted by The Washington Post, The New York Times and even the President of the USA.

Henry A. Giroux – Poisoned City: Flint and the Specter of Domestic Terrorism

In the current age of free-market frenzy, privatization, commodification and deregulation, Americans are no longer bound by or interested in historical memory, connecting narratives or modes of thinking that allow them to translate private troubles into broader systemic considerations. As Irving Howe once noted, “the rhetoric of apocalypse haunts the air” accompanied by a relentless spectacle that flattens time, disconnects …
