USA: Technology: Elon Musk Interview – Tesla, Space X. Neuralink, Government etc – WSJ video

‘Tesla as the World’s Biggest Robot Company:’ Elon Musk on AI and U.S. Innovation | WSJ

Wall Street Journal Interview- December 6, 2021

Watch Tesla CEO Elon Musk in an interview with WSJ’s Joanna Stern at the CEO Council Summit.

COMMENT from Corbin Williams: — If something ever happens to this man the world will miss him dearly. He’s working so hard to make the world sustainable, life multi planetary, people in remote areas have access to internet, those with major injuries walk and think again, and to remove the traffic congestion from the freeways. So many people put him down for being a “billionaire” but wouldn’t know what to do with all his billions if he donated the entire amount to taxes.

USA: Listen Up! — Dr. King Still Speaks to Us if We Will Listen – by Patrick Murfin

Dr. Martin Luther King

SATURDAY, JANUARY 15, 2022

 Posted by Patrick Murfin – Dr. King Still Speaks to Us if We Will Listen

When the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jrwas being held in jail in Alabama in 1963 he received a letter signed by several well-known White self-proclaimed racial moderates and liberal ministers who decried the unpleasantness and social disruption of the on-going campaign against racial discrimination in Birmingham.

Since he had unaccustomed time on his hands he took the time to patiently, even lovingly explain the situation in America’s most segregated city and why he and the Black citizens of the city were compelled to launch their campaign of non-violent direct action braving beatings, dogs, firehoses, threats, bombings, and jail to do so.        Continue reading

U.S.A.: Filibuster: the 10-letter dirty word Democrats hope to clean up – By Mohamed Hamaludin

By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

The Democratic Party controls the White House, the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives and yet cannot pass critical voting rights reform legislation because fellow travelers Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Krysten Sinema of Arizona, regarded as “moderates” in a party which has turned increasingly progressive, wield unofficial veto power through a political quirk.

The Senate is evenly divided but Democrats have a slim majority because the Vice President is also the Senate president with one vote, giving them a 51-50 majority. That should be enough for them to pass legislation not just in the House, where they have a majority, but also in the Senate, except for something called the filibuster. The word originated from the Dutch “vrijbuiter” or “freebooter” but came to mean “obstructing progress in a legislative assembly” or “political stonewalling,” Wikileaks notes.      Continue reading

U.S.A.: No good sign for a return to normalcy a year after the failed coup – By Mohamed Hamaludin

— By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

For the past 365 days, the most startling video footage has been of the violent attempt to nullify the results of the November 2020 presidential election.

One woman was shot trying to force her way into the Capitol building, five people died, including Capitol police officers who killed themselves, and 140 of them were wounded. The FBI has so far arrested 700 people, has charged at least 150 of them and about 50 have so far been convicted in court. A bipartisan House panel is investigating the insurrection. Five months into its work, the commission had interviewed 250 people, the Associated Press reported.

Yet, only 54 percent of Americans say the insurrectionists were “mostly violent,” 19 percent said they had been “mostly peaceful” and 27 percent said they were equally peaceful and violent, the Washington Post reported, citing the findings of a poll. While 85 percent of Democrats call it an “insurrection” aimed at “trying to overthrow the government,” only 21 percent of Republicans agreed, with 56 percent describing it as “defending freedom” and 47 percent calling an act of “patriotism,” Politico reported, citing a CBS poll.        Continue reading

China Is Panic Buying For The Coming Famine, But The U.S. Is Taking A Completely Different Approach – Video

The Epic Economist – December 29, 2021.

We’re living in an era when scarcity continues to aggravate all over the world. Global food supplies are at alarmingly low levels while prices keep reaching new highs with each passing month. Extreme weather events and ravaging natural disasters have been affecting food production all across the planet, and the health crisis has undoubtedly pushed global supply chains over the edge. The situation is incredibly chaotic right now, and every time the supply chain crisis seems to be easing a new disruption emerges to take things back to square one. As a consequence, the UN is warning that the world is currently battling the worst hunger crisis in this century, and conditions are expected to get even worse in 2022. Unfortunately, this tragic crisis is far from ending.        Continue reading

OPINION: Year 2021: Reflections – by Rosaliene Bacchus

Three Worlds One Vision – Guyana: Brazil: USA — By Rosaliene Bacchus

What a year! With the global COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 still upending our lives, the year 2021 has taught me that, with constant adaptation to ever-changing conditions, I can endure. The coronavirus had already taken over 385,000 American lives when I watched in disbelief the live TV broadcast of the January 6th assault on the US Capitol building. Terrorism had come home to American soil. Future generations may come to regard that day as the meltdown of our global War on Terror.

Nature’s ever-mutating, coronavirus terrorist has thrown our divided forces into disarray. When you cannot see the enemy, you are unaware of any imminent danger of a stealth attack. Underestimating the strength of the enemy can also lead to defeat and possible death. Instead of confronting our common enemy, we have turned on each other. Unable to agree on proven scientific strategies of defense against this formidable foe, we have sustained thousands of casualties within our ranks, especially among our weakest and most vulnerable members.

EUROPE: Checkmate: Putin has the West cornered – Opinion

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin

Opinion by Michael Bociurkiw | CNN

As 2022 nears, the West is trying to figure out Russian President Vladimir Putin’s next move on a complex geopolitical chessboard — and preparing an “aggressive package” of sanctions, should he decide to make another land grab in Ukraine. 

Tensions are now at their highest since 2014, when Russia illegally annexed Crimea and dispatched “little green men” into Ukraine’s Donbas region. An all-out land invasion of Ukraine is now a real possibility.

But let’s face it. Putin could care less about the West’s threats, sitting as he does in the enviable position of being able to call the shots.        Continue reading
