NEW New York politicians on both sides of the aisle are speaking out against Governor Andrew Cuomo after he was accused of sexual harassment by a second former aide. That aide, 25-year-old Charlotte Bennett, came out on Saturday and said Cuomo told her he was open to dating women in their 20s and asked her questions about her personal life in June, at the height of the state's COVID-19 crisis. It comes after Lindsey Boylan, 36, claimed he asked her to play strip poker and kissed her on the lips without her permission when she worked for him in 2017. Cuomo, 63, said he 'never intended to act in any way that was inappropriate' with Bennett and his press secretary said Boylan's claims were 'false'. On Friday, the governor promised a review of the allegations by former federal judge Barbara Jones - who was appointed by Bill Clinton. But prominent Democrats including state Sen Alessandra Biaggi, Lt Gov. Kathy Hochul and Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie turned their backs on Cuomo and called for a 'truly independent probe'. '@NYGovCuomo, you are a monster, and it is time for you to go. Now,' Biaggi, a Democrat from the Bronx, wrote on Twitter.
what the heck is this??? Nipple piercings?
On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) blasted New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) as a “hypocrite” and pointed to his calls for a polygraph test and an FBI investigation into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Malliotakis said, “He’s a hypocrite. It is rules for thee, not for me. He has called for an FBI investigation, for a polygraph test when it came to Justice Kavanaugh. As a matter of fact, in 2013, there [were] similar charges against an assemblyman. He demanded his resignation immediately. He said there was no tolerance for sexual harassment in New York State, and so, the governor now has a lot of answers that he needs to give New Yorkers. This just adds to his problems.”
The Plain Truth Staff Research:
Yes. Earth has experienced cold periods (or “ice ages”) and warm periods (“interglacials”) on roughly 5000 plus-year cycles. Over the course of these cycles, global average temperatures warmed or cooled anywhere from 5°-15° Fahrenheit.
Over at least the past 5,000 years, glacial and interglacial cycles have been triggered by variations in how much sunlight reaches the Northern Hemisphere in the summer, which are driven by small variations in the geometry of Earth’s orbit around the Sun. But these fluctuations in sunlight aren’t enough on their own to bring about full-blown ice ages and interglacials. They trigger several feedback loops that amplify the original warming or cooling. During an interglacial,
- sea ice and snow retreat, reducing the amount of sunlight the Earth reflects;
- warming increases atmospheric water vapor, which is a powerful greenhouse gas;
- permafrost thaws and decomposes, releasing more methane and carbon dioxide; and
- the ocean warms and releases dissolved carbon dioxide, which traps even more heat.
The role of climate change due to natural God caused events is well recorded in recent history. The Little Ice Age is a period between about 1300 and 1870 during which Europe and North America were subjected to much colder winters than during the 20th century. The period can be divided in two phases, the first beginning around 1300 and continuing until the late 1400s.
In the roughly five thousand years of recorded human history, there has been one period in which we have had a real taste of our climate’s potential for moodiness, beginning around the start of the fourteenth century and lasting for hundreds of years. During this time, temperatures dropped by as much as 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Compared with the extremes of snowball earth, that might not sound like much, but for people who lived through it the change was intensely dramatic. This was also the period between the end of the Middle Ages and the birth of the modern world. In a new book, “Nature’s Mutiny: How the Little Ice Age of the Long Seventeenth Century Transformed the West and Shaped the Present” (Liveright), the German-born, Vienna-based historian Philipp Blom argues that this is no coincidence—that there is a complex relationship between the social, economic, and intellectual disruption caused by the changed climate and the emerging era of markets, exploration, and intellectual freedom which constituted the beginning of the Enlightenment.
The Little Ice Age is an example of how we so often find climate changes can help or hinder civilization. We know for sure that the earth became cooler: the evidence can be found through a variety of techniques for assessing historical temperatures, such as the study of ice cores and tree rings. There are also extensive written accounts of the cold in the form of letters and diaries, sermons, the records of wine growers, and so on. The cooling happened in phases, with an initial drop beginning around 1300, and a sharper and more abrupt onset of cold starting in 1570 and lasting for about a hundred and ten years. It is the latter period that provides the focus for Blom’s book. Agreement about the fact that the cooling occurred, however, is not matched by an equivalent consensus about why. There is evidence that the cooling may have been caused by a decrease in sunspot activity, and therefore in solar radiation, or by an increase in volcanic eruptions.
So many people died of disease in the Americas after the arrival of Columbus—fifty-six million, according to the latest research in Quaternary Science Reviews—and so many areas of cleared, cultivated land were abandoned, and thus allowed to reforest. In China, then as now the most populous country in the world, the Ming dynasty fell in 1644, undermined by, among other things, erratic harvests. In Europe, rivers and lakes and harbors froze, leading to phenomena such as the “frost fairs” on the River Thames—fairgrounds that spread across the river’s London tideway, which went from being a freakish rarity to a semi-regular event.
Birds iced up and fell from the sky; men and women died of hypothermia; the King of France’s beard froze solid while he slept. Some of the central events of English history turn out to have been linked to the Little Ice Age: in 1588, the Spanish Armada was destroyed by an unprecedented Arctic hurricane, and a factor in the Great Fire of London, in 1666, was the ultra-dry summer that succeeded the previous, bitter winter. Fingerprints of the cold period can be found in surprising places. Why do the most admired violins in the history of music, made by Stradivarius and Guarneri, come from the middle of the Little Ice Age? Blom cites research arguing that trees took longer to mature in the cold, which resulted in a denser wood, with “better sound qualities and more intense resonance.”
The most consequential effect of the frigid weather, Blom argues convincingly, was to disrupt the harvest, especially the grain harvest. It led to a fundamental shift in the social order across Europe, and beyond. The Little Ice Age amounted to “a long-term, continent-wide agricultural crisis,” as Blom writes. Grain harvests did not return to their previous levels for a hundred and eighty years. That affected everything about how society worked. Before this moment in European history, society was largely organized along feudal lines. The bulk of the population consisted of peasants, living on land owned by a lordly overclass. Town life, meanwhile, was dominated by restrictive guilds, and, in Blom’s description, it “valued social capital—class and family standing, trustworthiness, competition—but did not encourage anyone to reach beyond his station.” This settled order, which had lasted for centuries, was overturned. At first, there were panics and uprisings, food riots and rebellions, and a spike in witch trials—because, in a pre-scientific world, the idea that witches were responsible for failing harvests made as much sense as any other explanation.
Over time, however, larger structural shifts emerged. In the basic bargain of feudal life, a peasant kept one part of his harvest for himself, put one part back into the ground for the next year’s harvest, and gave the last part to his feudal lord. When peasants had no surplus grain, this system collapsed. If local crops were failing, trading at a distance, to bring goods from farther afield, was critical. Money, and the ability to buy and sell with cash or its equivalent, took on a larger role. Cities with a culture of trade especially benefitted from this shift. The preëminent example in “Nature’s Mutiny” is Amsterdam, which went from being a sleepy backwater of the Habsburg Empire to a thriving, economically dynamic center of rapidly expanding commercial networks, with a population that grew tenfold in just over a century.
Here we see the birth of the idea that markets, and the rules of markets, have supremacy in human affairs; we also see how the new dispensation offered opportunities to a new breed of ambitious, ruthless, commercially minded man. Amsterdam was the home of one of the world’s first big exploitative overseas businesses, the Dutch East India Company (Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie), or V.O.C. Blom tells the story of Jan Pieterszoon Coen, a V.O.C. official who burned down the Indonesian city of Jakarta and then led an expedition to punish traders on nearby islands who had broken the V.O.C. monopoly on nutmeg by selling to English and Portuguese merchants. Coen executed the merchants, killed fifteen thousand islanders, and sold the survivors into slavery. His feats in Indonesia would not have been possible, he told the company directors, “had not the Almighty fought on our side and blessed us.” For true believers, God and the rules of markets were becoming inseparable—a conflation that, Blom argues, was taken to justify the exploitation of both people and natural resources and would lead us to our contemporary moment of environmental crisis.
This is a sweeping story, embracing developments in economics and science, philosophy and exploration, religion and politics. Blom delivers much of his argument through compressed, beautifully clear life sketches of prominent men. We meet the philosopher (and retired soldier) René Descartes, the mage and proto-scientist John Dee, the essayist Michel Montaigne, the Jesuit polymath Athanasius Kircher, the excommunicated Jewish philosopher Baruch de Spinoza, the encyclopedist Pierre Bayle, and the great painter Rembrandt van Rijn, who both depicted and embodied the new human landscape of Dutch economic transformation.
In the course of “Nature’s Mutiny,” therefore, we travel a considerable distance from the subject of unusually cold weather. Too far, a reader might think, for Blom’s argument to be regarded as a case conclusively settled. But it wouldn’t be fair to “Nature’s Mutiny” to see the issue of proof so starkly. It is a book about a new economic system and the philosophical and cultural trends that accompanied it; climate is central to the story that it tells, but the connections don’t aim for the solidity of algebraic logic. Rather, Blom is seeking to give us a larger picture that is relevant to the current moment. His book is about links and associations rather than about definitive proof; it is about networks and shifts in intellectual mood, about correlations as much as causes.
Blom’s hypothesis is forceful, and has the potential to be both frightening and, if you hold it up to the light at just the right angle, a little optimistic. The idea can be put like this: climate change changes everything.
And it is NATURE and GOD that changes this climate - NOT MAN or LIBERAL SCIENTIST!
The Plain Truth is the earth has been cooling for decades! Global warming is ACTUALLY GOOD, as crops grow better to feed more. Cooling is a real threat. The earth goes through natural cooling and warming phases, and that's The Plain Truth! It has nothing to do with man, it's God's plan!
The Gulf Stream is 'dangerously close to tipping point': Ocean current is at its weakest for over 1,000 YEARS due to climate change and could plunge Europe into a deep freeze
Known formally as the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), it is the driving force which brings warm water from the Gulf of Mexico up to the UK. Experts warn that by the end of the century it could be so weak it reaches a tipping point which would result in devastating weather conditions across the world.

For some unknown reason, I get quite a bit of hate mail, or more accurately, harassment e-mails. I think it may surprise them if they only knew that 'sticks n stones' do't bother me a bit. The simple reason is that I write to an audience of two, that's it. I am really satisfied if only two sets of eyes read what I write. I do want my family to read what I write, in an effort to impart what knowledge I have gained over the years to them, but I am also honestly aware that they sometimes don't as much as I wish they would. Someone sent me an e-mail sarcastically informing me that I probably don't have more than 25 people reading the nonsense that I write. Well to be honest, it is a little more, but almost never more than 500 or so, unless of course it is about sex, or Danica Patrick, of NASCAR fame. I have one article on Sex and the Bible that has been opened at least 45,000 times! The few on Patrick that has been put on The Plain Truth also have thousands of views. I guess they saw no pictures, and quickly clicked 'back.'
So who do I write for? Myself, perhaps? Nope. I write to God; both the Father and to Jesus, and do so in the same way I pray to them. So my writing style is a bit unprofessional. Reading something I write is usually a stream of consciousness set of thoughts, much like if one had a conversation with me on a phone, or in person. Some readers tell me they enjoy it, I am sure my English teachers cringe and deny they ever had me in their classes.

One doesn't have to be all that spiritual to recognize that things are not going very well for citizens of the world right now, but most of us have no clue why things are going badly, and maybe spinning out of control. Today we are facing four worldwide problems which could kill millions of us, and for the most part, nobody knows why. No, I am not talking about Coronavirus, as it has been overblown and exploited by power hungry globalist and Democrats to gain control over the middle class. According to the Bible, the four worldwide problems are really spirits which will eventually destroy up to 5 billion people worldwide! Interested? You should be, because whether you want to believe it or not, these problems affect you and your loved ones right now.
Many of us live our lives day by day. We work hard, but never seem to get ahead. Many don't want to watch or read the news because they just don't think that anything that is going on impacts them, or even if it does, there is nothing they can do to change anything. If you think this you are wrong! Ten people could have saved Sodom, a huge city of its time.... God only found one! Below I am lisitng the four major problems that are and will be affecting your life!

Are we living in the last days? Are we in the end times? Is the return of Jesus Christ right around the corner? These are the questions that many of us ask ourselves whenever we read the book of Revelation or the Gospel of Matthew concerning the return of Jesus Christ and his kingdom of God that he is bringing with him.
First of all there is a misnomer, with the term “end times” that most people have. Jesus was never talking about the end of the world and John in his book of Revelation wasn’t either. What both men were talking about is best described with the phrase “the end of the age” of mankind.
When God created man, Adam and Eve to be exact, a new age upon this earth began. It was the age of mankind and it began approximately 5 to 6000 years ago, as best we can tell. Adam was set up to rule this earth during this age, but because of Adam’s sin, he lost his right as ruler of this age–the age of mankind. Many are not aware that the Bible plainly states that the Earth is much older than man. In fact, those who believe the earth to be billions of years old are not necessarily in conflict with the Bible at all! It is very possible that the earth is very old. In Genesis the correct translation of God creating the heavens and the earth is that God re-created the earth after a cataclysm that is not mentioned. This former earth was under the rulership of the great archangel Lucifer, the angel who rebelled against God and became Satan. If Adam had not sinned, he would have been the ruler of this age. But Adam did sin and was not able to replace Satan as the ruler of this age.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ, one that is rarely ever presented in churches today, is that Jesus as God is coming back to replace Satan as the ruler of this earth and usher in a new age. When Christ returns, he is bringing the kingdom of God with him, a government that will have no end, and the age of man will come to an end. That is the gospel that just is not preached today. Jesus was not merely talking about salvation. He definitely wasn’t talking about how to get to heaven. What he was talking about was bringing God’s government to earth, complete with God’s Laws and God's Love.
Christians should understand that any effort not focused on a message of repentance and the imminent return of the Lord is wasted effort.
I'm not being a defeatist; I'm speaking biblical truth. I'm not advocating complacency; I am advocating that those who claim to be Christians should be about the work of the Lord. How many billions of dollars has Christendom invested in political candidates, presidents, legal battles, numerous and varying organizations, etc.?
What have we to show for the money given to the GOP? Are our children able to openly pray in a public school cafeteria? Are our children safe from the sodomitic debauchery advanced in public schools? Are Christian teachers able to display a crucifix in their classrooms? Are our children able to wear Christocentric clothing to school? Are we seeing fewer babies murdered? Of course not! Debauched heathen behavior has proliferated on every quantifiable level – and Republicans want us to believe giving them more money will now make a difference? Christendom is expected to believe if we make enough phone calls, send enough emails and give enough money to Republicans, we'll see positive change.

Now that the election is over, Trump is out of office and Biden is in, thoughts have turned to governing. Well, maybe not governing. More like executive order fiat. It seems the only measure Congress has voted on thus far is the impeachment.
Still, if you believe the Dems, they were the ones we had to elect to restore our "democracy." And every time they mention that word, "democracy," many of us right-wing radicals feel compelled to remind America that we are not in fact a democracy, but are a constitutional, representative republic. Maybe we just say, "We are a republic."
And we are a republic for a reason. The founders knew the difference, which is why they painstakingly developed the form of government we still have and has, at least for now, stood the test of time. MORE

The unanimous Declaration of the 50 sovereign states of united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all people are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among the people, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present political, media and business leaders of the United States is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
Leaders have usurped the freedoms guaranteed by the United States Constitution!
Governors have passed Laws to intimidate and to harm their citizens, causing death to tens of thousands.
Government and state regulations have refused to enforce laws guaranteeing liberty and freedoms of assembly, religious services and public gatherings to protest illegal rule.
Deep Sate leaders allowed others to be elected; who were not elected by the people of the United States but by a few who stole the election with fraudulent ballots.
Local and State governments have obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
Judges have been political in nature, and thus dependent on the Will alone, of those politicians who have selected them instead of defending the people and the Consitution.
Government has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
Government has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
Congress has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of a fair Trial:
For abolishing the free System of American Laws establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these states:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own elections, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
Government here, by declaring us out "terrorist" has been waging War against us.
Leaders have excited domestic insurrections amongst us, allowing rioting in our streets and acts of criminality and murder.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
We have warned them from time to time of attempts by our legislatures to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these states, solemnly publish and declare, That these United States are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States of the present governmental leaders who have usurped our freedoms and rights; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to this present governance, and that all political connection between them and the State of the leaders of this nation, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

News Stories from Across The World:
First written in 1957 by Garner Ted Armstrong, The Plain Truth about what happens when we die. the Bible is plain, we just don't want to believe what it says...
Most people do not realize what a man really is, believe it or not. Yet God plainly tells us the answer. "And the Eternal God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul" (Gen. 2:7).
There is the answer! Man became a living soul; that is what man is — a soul. Notice there is no mention that man has a soul, but that man is a soul.
When God placed Adam and Eve, who were two living souls, in the garden, He issued a command: "And the Eternal God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." God was speaking to the man, who was a soul!
When God said Adam would surely die for taking of the wrong fruit, He was directly informing man of the penalty for sin. The inspired Apostle Paul wrote, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Rom. 6:23).
Death is the absence of life, the cessation of life — not the continuation of life under different circumstances. Notice the two opposite states given in Romans 6:23. God tells us the wages of sin is death, but, on the other hand, the gift of God (not something you were born with) is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
If eternal life is the gift of God, and comes only through Christ, how is it that humans have assumed they already possess eternal life in the form of an "immortal soul"? Ezekiel said the "soul" that sinneth shall die! Since man is a soul, and since man can die, and a soul can die, it is obvious that man and soul are one and the same thing!
Rush Limbaugh has died at the age of 70. That announcement was made at the very beginning of Wednesday's Rush Limbaugh Show.
This is a breaking story. More details coming.
Bob Barney: We know this very well from our own business. We are in the paint business, and has spent literally thousands of dollars on corrupt EPA, OSHA, Fire and governmental officials with paying lawyers, fighting bogus fines, etc. These people are evil people with "little guy" syndrome who actually hates small business out of their own jealousies.
Ever since "14 days to slow the spread" transitioned into a months-long shutdown for many states, Americans have wondered whether lockdowns are more about power than safety in the eyes of those in government.
One Los Angeles County health inspector's recent behavior did not do much to quash those concerns.
According to Fox News, Bart Avery is one of the owners of Bravery Brewery in Lancaster, California. Avery said he saw a health inspector begin dancing just moments after telling a brewery employee the business had to shut down.
Steven Gregory, a correspondent for iHeartMedia, posted a video taken by a security camera within the brewery that appears to corroborate Avery's story.

What are UFO's???? The Plain Truth About UFO's-Updated
It was Benjamin Franklin who famously replied, "A republic, if you can keep it," when a group of citizens asked him what form of government the founders had created for them. Few remember that he also said, "[This republic] is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in Despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic Government, being incapable of any other," adding, "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." Notice that he said "when," not "if."
Franklin's prophecy has come true: The putative Biden "presidency" is proof that our republic has been replaced by despotism – the consequence of our loss of virtue as a people. Sure, we can blame the Marxists for usurping our institutions and indoctrinating generations of Americans in atheism, hedonism and the victim/plunder mentality, but we nevertheless remain responsible for our own choices. "The devil made me do it" defense can't save you in this life or the next.
What Franklin meant by "virtue" was Christianity, saying to the assembly at the 1787 Constitutional Convention, which wrote the U.S. Constitution: "In the beginning of the contest with Britain, when we were sensible of danger, we had daily prayers in this room for Divine protection. Our prayers … were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a superintending Providence in our favor … and have we not forgotten this powerful Friend? Or do we imagine we no longer need His assistance? [T]he longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth: 'that God governs in the affairs of man.' And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?"
In the 1960s, antiwar activists adopted songs like the "Eve of Destruction" and "For What It's Worth" as their anthems. Disenchanted youth feared that the world was on the verge of collapse; we were nearing the end of days. Concurrently, the civil rights activists were singing the hopeful "We Shall Overcome." (Black folks singing an upbeat and emboldening song written by a white guy would be frowned upon today.) Both groups were buoyed by the blessing of free speech. Their voices were heard. Attempts at silencing them only made their voices louder and more widespread. Even people on the sidelines began to pay attention.
The war ended, civil rights moved forward, and life went on. People wanted not to sing the same note, but harmony. Even Rodney King, whose 1991 beating was a lightning rod for riots against police brutality pleaded, "Can we all get along?" Yes, we can. People have no appetite for or energy to waste on hating for sport. We have the freedom and sensibility to disagree and work toward peaceful coexistence – when we are free from government propaganda and media manipulation.
However, the political class thrives on discord. Since circa 360 B.C., the "divide and rule" concept was on the books. Philip II of Macedon, Alexander the Great's father, knew that with division comes weakness. The Greek rulers were able to keep the various cultural and ethnic groups in check by keeping them in a constant state of conflict. The factions are so busy bickering and jockeying for favored status that they fail to see their government's main objective is to stay in power, not to empower the populace.
Jeff Bezos is pictured with girlfriend Lauren Sanchez--- Billionaire takes private jet to Cabo, two weeks after stepping down to 'focus on climate change'
Jeff Bezos has been spotted landing in Cabo San Lucas with girlfriend Lauren Sanchez for a romantic Valentine's getaway following his announcement that he would step down as the CEO of Amazon. Bezos, 57, and Sanchez, 51, arrived at the luxurious Mexican vacation spot in a private jet on Friday, and were quickly whisked away by a waiting limousine to begin their weekend retreat. It was the first time the lovebirds had been spotted together since Bezos announced on February 2 that he would hand over the day-to-day management of Amazon to longtime company executive Andy Jassy by the end of this year.
