“We have to return the knowledge of God and the Constitution of the United States to the United States Congress.”

Sep 27, 2017 | When former judge Roy Moore bounded onto stage Tuesday night to declare victory in the Alabama Republican primary, he was quick to offer his own explanation for his resounding nine-point win.

“There’s one you don’t see up here [on stage], and let me just tell you, He’s done more for my campaign than anybody — and that’s almighty God,” Moore said to a raucous crowd. He then quoted a passage from Isaiah 40 before declaring: “We have to return the knowledge of God and the Constitution of the United States to the United States Congress.”

May 24, 2016 | JAY: Welcome back to Reality Asserts Itself on The Real News Network. I'm Paul Jay, in Baltimore. We're continuing our discussion with Roger Waters and Sut Jhally. We're talking about the new film "The Occupation of the American Mind: Israel's Public Relations War in the United States." And you're really going to...I'm not going to introduce the guys again, because you really should go back and watch this from the beginning, cause I think it's a fascinating interview.

We're going to start off showing a clip. The importance of the next clip that we're going to show you is that even some of the most liberal, major media commentators [inaud.] buy in to the same narrative. Israel's the victim. And [they] seem very reluctant. And some of these people should know better, or really do know better and don't want to say so, including Rachel Maddow.

09/20/2017 | It doesn’t matter if you grow up in India or China or the United States ― when it comes to learning what it means to be a girl or a boy, a universal stereotype prevails: Girls are weak and boys are strong.

That’s the dispiriting finding of a comprehensive new study of children and their parents around the world, released Wednesday morning by the World Health Organization and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Sex%20%26%20Relationships%20Banner_0.jpg

Kids learn this “truth” about gender from their parents, friends and teachers at a very young age, conclude the researchers, who looked at kids ages 10 to 14, the period when they’re just entering adolescence.

September 16, 2017 | For lots of people like me, the world has been turned on its head over the last few years. In fact, the whole damn century thus far has been pretty puzzling.

We started out by electing the village idiot as our leader, a rich man’s kid who had demonstrated little in the way of intelligence or competence in anything he’d ever done up to that point. Then we re-elected him despite the fact that he had, in his first term, invaded the wrong country in response to a big terror attack he’d neglected to prevent, having been on vacation the entire month preceding those assaults on New York and the Pentagon.
