MH370 story heats up again

International Business Times:

The suspect who brought the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 to the unknown is a technical genius with highly sophisticated hacking skills, to the extent that he or she has profound knowledge of how the Boeing 777 works, according to satellite expert Michale Exner. Profiling the suspect this way, MH370's captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah is therefore innocent, Exner who is independently investigating MH370 concludes.

Elizabeth Warren: Better, But Not there Yet

In her recent post-election piece “It's Time to Work on America's Agenda” Elizabeth Warren points out that the changes in Washington and in various States aren't changing the fact that

The stock market and gross domestic product keep going up, while families are getting squeezed hard by an economy that isn’t working for them.

Libya Today, If Any Americans Remotely Care

It always resonates the pace of “Lucy and the chocolate factory” manic-ness, US-government, often with NATO, produced chaos and misery around the world, not to mention the chaos and misery from our own government on us domestically.

We collectively are easily numbed out by the "velocitization" of global and domestic tragedies our government is responsible for, though that responsibility rarely is dwelled upon if admitted to by a colluding and propagandizing mainstream media. Read below the fold...

Here is a horrible but beautiful image in pale yellow, grey, green, and brown of a left-over cancerous snow blotch, autumn leaves, frost-killed Black-Eyed Susans covered in mold, and grunge thrown to the side by the plows. "Change and decay in all around I see...." Read below the fold...

New York Post gives a hat tip to the Green Party

I don't believe for a moment their motives are anything other than mischievous, but this editorial does have the merit of being true:

Two cheers for New York’s Green Party

Bill Clinton is so full of shit

Bill Clinton, that loveable rogue. I still have a soft spot for him because he's so damn good at what he does[1]. And no matter the reason, the Clinton 90s were better for a lot of Americans than Bush's oughts or Obama's teens; real wages, on average, went up, for example. But that was a long time ago, and what has Bill or any Clinton done for me lately? But dear lord. This is unforgivable:

[BILL CLINTON:] We are in the best shape of any big country in the world in the next 20 years,” he said. “No big country that is running this well is as young as we are, as diverse as we are or as technological as we are. In the next 20 years, there will be bad days, there will be bad headlines, but you can keep the trend lines positive.
