A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

What's truly amazing and revelatory about the contributions is how small they are compared to the millions and billions of dollars savvy donors stand to make in future business income and profit. So, how much are these "contributions" really worth? About 30 pieces of silver.

Hello Campers-did you notice the stars on the elephant logo? Look carefully-they are point down-which is quite strange considering the Rethugs stated love of Jesus and dislike of Satan & things demonic. Or maybe those stars are just dancing both ways-hello 'Wide-Stance' Sen. Craig from IdaHo!

Our 'democracy' doesn't need fixing-it's already fixed! Don't forget to vote mm

THE ONLY HONEST ONE IN THE Whole bunch is Ron Paul, honest, straight forward, better informed and better educated, has held a REAL job for years, is not a career politician, and is what America needs!!
"They" will do all they can to sideline him because he does not support what they would sell their souls to get or keep - the perks of the politicians which is enormous and the PAC money! Just bribes. And once in, it goes on forever.

a terrific book to read, Gilad Alzmon's
"The Wandering Who?" Concise, enough in this small book to match an encyclopedia, amazing. He's a popular SAX player, lives in England, is from Jerusalem and was with the IDF, then left. He's not a Zionist and he witnessed the abuse of the indigenous people of Palestine and speaks out against it. A good man - book is on Amazon,com. Another book is by Shlomo Sand, a professor at Tel Aviv University, remarkable because he has written about the mythology of the history of the Jews from the OT, tales written hundreds of years after the tales of battles, exodus, etc, tales written by no one knows.No one thousands of years ago were writing history - only in Egypt were records kept in stone. Just get the books and you won't need anymore to understand what is going on today.
