Mueller III.

* Russian interference in our elections: He brushed it off as a hoax. He mused that it might be China, or a guy from New Jersey, or “somebody sitting on their bed who weighs 400 pounds.” He said President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia had assured him it wasn’t true. And, he added, “I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it.”

Investigation of Russian interference: Robert Mueller is being asked to testify yet again. He said he could only stick to the Report, & that is what he would and must do. After so much testimony & total transparency, this Witch Hunt must now end. No more Do-Overs. No Collusion, No Obstruction. The Great Hoax is dead!

*After former Special Counsel Robert Mueller called President Trump’s previous remarks praising WikiLeaks beyond “problematic” on Wednesday, the president told reporters the group was a “hoax.” “So, WikiLeaks is a hoax, just like everything else. And all of those problems having to do with crime were the biggest hoax of all,” Trump said.

*President Donald Trump blasted House Democrats after they announced the launch of a new ‘abuse of power’ investigation. The targets include his sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, son-in-law Jared Kushner, disgraced former lawyer Michael Cohen and former adviser Roger Stone. ‘It’s a political hoax,’ Trump said, ‘I cooperate all the time with everybody.’

The most important problems in economics involve the excessive income/wealth/power Gaps between the richer and the poorer.

Wide Gaps negatively affect poverty, health and longevity, education, housing, law and crime, war, leadership, ownership, bigotry, supply and demand, taxation, GDP, international relations, scientific advancement, the environment, human motivation and well-being, and virtually every other issue in economics.

Implementation of The Ten Steps To Prosperity can narrow the Gaps:

Ten Steps To Prosperity:

1. Eliminate FICA

2. Federally funded Medicare — parts a, b & d, plus long-term care — for everyone

3. Provide a monthly economic bonus to every man, woman and child in America (similar to social security for all)

4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone

5. Salary for attending school

6. Eliminate federal taxes on business

7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually. 

8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.

9. Federal ownership of all banks

10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 

The Ten Steps will grow the economy, and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and you.

MONETARY SOVEREIGNTY

  1. The global warming “hoax” in action:

    Scorching heat squashes records across Europe
    Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom all broke high-temperature records Thursday as a heatwave swept across Europe.

    A 100.6-degree reading marked the hottest July day the U.K. has ever seen, while Paris’ 108.6 degrees beat a previous all-time high by nearly four degrees.
    The heatwave overheated electrical lines in London, blocking train service to suburbs.

    Reports in France are also linking the heat to at least five deaths.

    Belgium and the Netherlands set triple-digit records on Wednesday, and promptly saw them broken again on Thursday.

    All of Europe’s hottest summers have come in the past 17 years, and scientists say human-caused climate change is a contributing factor, suggesting such extreme temperatures are likely to become more common. [BBC News, The New York Times]

    Trump and his followers know better.

    Europe’s heatwave could now cause catastrophic melting of Greenland’s ice sheet
    The same heat wave that swept across Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom this week, breaking high-temperature records reaching up to 114 degrees, is wafting over to Greenland and could cause catastrophic melting, the United Nations said Friday.
    Reuters reports that the heat could cause record melting of one of the world’s largest ice sheets, contributing to rising sea levels around the globe. The Greenland ice sheet has been struggling in recent scorching weeks, according to Denmark data tracking the gains and losses of the ice mass.
    “In July alone, it lost 160 billion tonnes of ice through surface melting,” said U.N. World Meteorological Organization spokeswoman Clare Nullis. “That’s roughly the equivalent of 64 million Olympic-sized swimming pools. Just in July. Just surface melt — it’s not including ocean melt as well.”
    If the Greenland ice sheet melts entirely, it would raise global sea levels by 7 meters, or approximately 23 feet.,

    Trump’s brilliant followers will tell you it’s a Chinese hoax. And so the world ends due to stupidity.

  2. Senate Intelligence panel warns of election-security threat
    The Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday unveiled a report warning that Russian election interference in the 2016 election was broader than previously believed.
    The report described “extensive activity” directed by the Russian government to exploit weaknesses in U.S. election systems and warned that the U.S. “must create effective deterrence” to prevent further cybersecurity issues.
    The report said Russia targeted election systems in all 50 states, although there was “no evidence that any votes were changed.”
    Lawmakers applauded progress on preventing such foreign meddling over the last three years, but the committee’s vice chairman, Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), said he hoped the findings would fuel a stepped up effort to improve election security.
    “This threat remains urgent,” he said. [NPR, The New York Times]
