The not-so 9 o'clock news

A news show that tells it like it is.

If you believe that.

From the right side of the spectrum they have Jesse Ventura, who has his own show there, and from the left they often bring in Dennis Kucinich. Two rare US politicians that were not bought and paid for by corporations; long before this whole anti-Russia story was ever floated. You think they were working for Russia all that time? Shows you how little I know. I completely missed that.

This is interesting - a turning point in the Middle East - maybe!

Thank you, Sulmonte.

I think I was very moved to begin with, as there are statues of Divine Mother from different cultures. I had decided to get to know the mother aspect of God this year only, and as I mentally bowed down to them, I got a tiny blessing I wasn't expecting!
Each blessing is always just the beginning of a new journey, don't you think?

Good direction for the Saudies (except towards Iran).

"I fear that the day I die I'm going to die without accomplishing what I have in mind. Life is too short and a lot of things can happen, and I'm really keen to see it with my own eyes - and that is why I am in a hurry." - crown prince Mohammed bin Salman

I do not think that they will start a war - atomic bomb is too dangerous - would destroy the entire region. Iran will eventually go with the change. Hopefully.

Not every day that a samurai sword in a shinto temple makes the headlines.
