Former President Trump ordered the Pentagon to release all of its information on “unidentified aerial phenomena” (UAP) within 18 days in his last coronavirus relief bill in December 2020. More inexplicable sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) will be released for public scrutiny in June — including a UFO that broke...

From Rolling Stone: The Covid relief package is providing a platform for a historic Senate newcomer to deliver for a long-struggling constituency: black farmers. Led by Sen. Rev.

Barely a week ago, Trump forced Byung Pak, the USDA for the northern district of Georgia, to step down, and then he bypassed the normal replacement process to put in the USDA for the southern district, Bobby Christine, a Trump loyalist. Trump then told him to FIND THE GODDAM FRAUD!...

Tom Vilsack returns to the position he held during the Obama administration at USDA. Why hasn’t the pandemic compelled a rethinking of factory farming. Changing trends toward sustainability must show that the structure of industry needs to change. We’ll see. At least Biden is motivated by actual contacts rather than seeing...

Trump doesn’t care whether he loses his security deposit. He just wants the chaos of dying meat processors, conspiracy-driven ICU trespassers, and a quarter-million dead Americans from COVID-19. And in foreign policy, Trump’s inviting skunk, gophers, and groundhogs into the crawlspaces before moving out.  Washington (CNN) President Donald Trump's order...

Feral pigs are the crying-wolf excuse for some firearm owners, as though the average hunter needed a modern sporting rifle (semi-auto long gun with large capacity magazine) to defend their home and children against predator species. Then there’s Kenosha’s 17 year-old killer and his AR-15 pattern rifle with 30-round magazine. The...

More likely, if Mulvaney’s approval was necessary to move digital items like phone call memos to the so-called secret server, he’ll be in much bigger trouble than not having a response strategy for the release of the Ukraine summary of 25 July.
