USA is waaay behind rest of world with rail and energy independence.


US is more than independent as far as energy. It's the #1 producer in the world of oil and natural gas now thanks to someone's intelligent policies. Nothing like not being attached to a ball and chain to unstable Russian/middle eastern sources like Europe currently is and will be for decades to come.

Wind doesn't work, neither is solar a viable alternative to either natural gas/crude oil and even coal puts out energy. china and india have -0- problems using it to power those economies.

It would be nice seeing some kind of rail make a comeback, but it's honestly been on the decline in the states for well over 50y. the government has been heavily subsidizing Amtrack to keep any kind of passenger train transport afloat for how many decades? Subways in big cities the infrastructure is crumbling it's so old, but has been ignored. believe it's the hurry up attitude most young Americans have. I'd be interested to know just how many have been on a train, outside of a subway car.

It sounds more like the rest of the Democrat possibles will combine behind one figure. Whoever that is - Buttigieg, Bloomberg but surely not Biden. Mean while US media creates further election interfence with Russophobia 2.0 All talk and no evidence. I'm waiting for the please trust us on this from the FBI.


You keep repeating the same Russia state media talking point about alleged lack of evidence.  Good soldier but the facts and corroborating evidence tell otherwise.  First of all it was not the US but multiple European intel sources whom were amongst the very first to tip off the Russian meddling to FBI.  So how can it be Deep State conspiracy theory if sources were from Western Europe intel sources?  Also the Intelligence Community is agnostic to Partisan political agendas and largely are former law enforcement / military personnel.

Name one country in the world that has publicly disclosed disclosed it's Intelligence sources?  Not going to happen it's fantasy delusion to expect any surveillance to be revealed which shows opponents methods / sources / informants or possibly compromise ongoing counter-intel ops.

@ John: energy / infrastructure...USA produces so much oil and natural gas because we are the #1 consumer.  It's all about basic supply & demand.  USA is still heavily dependent on imports.  Not true about alternative sources, Tesla and other Electric vehicle demand is surging to record sales.  Cities in Europe already 100% running on alternative even where they don't have a lot of direct sun.  Lobbyists want to make sure it "doesn't work" in USA to protect their selfish interests.  And no rail transit is critical part of B2B supply chain logistics in US with CSX, BNSF, Norfolk Southern and many other heavy freight distributors with plenty of business.  Yes consumer rail is lacking except in a few metro areas.

DJ - I don't think naming a source was what he was getting at but rather providing evidence. Yes that could lead to source naming but isn't that the US Intel family anyway ? I'm sure you are aware that Israel played by far the biggest part for any foreign nation in the US 2016 Elections. - https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/israel-us-elections-intervention-russia-noam-chomsky-donald-trump-a8470481.html
 
In this day and age and with recent history proving the only reliable intel is backed up with hard evidence. No examples needed, just one word - Iraq.

DJ - more important issues. Who is going to win the Democrat nomination - Sanders, Biden, Bloomberg or someone else. My money for what it's worth - Sanders. Even though I see they are starting to gang up on him again.

Well, US still depends on foreign sources, and keeps buying oil&gas, even from Russia. There are also some conspiracy about true story of shale oil&gas revolution: still high levels of import (greater that in 80s, despite much lower industry needs), failure of virtually all shale projects outside US, and signs of massive falsifications of reports from involved parties, even EIA.

Exactly USA still heavily dependent on oil imports.  Although we get more from Western Canada recently USA can not escape global supply / demand.  If Iran wants to start fight with the Saudi's or some other even minor interference with global supplies it would wreak havoc on USA economy.  And yes Rex Tillerson was desperate for good deal on some Russian oil to import before the sanctions side-tracked an even larger deal.  So USA is no where close to energy independence in comparison to Brazil or other nations.

@Hasani - yes I knew you were going to cite Iraq.  Actually if you review the history closely the Intel agencies actually tried to push back from Dick Cheney's lies but were muzzled.
Also the movie "Official Secrets" based on true story exposes the lies the Blair regime in U.K. made to hype up the case for war.  But those were totally different circumstances and ALL of the key intelligence officials both past & present have corroborated the evidence shown to Congress.  Even most Republicans in Congress don't dispute those set of facts.

And big shake-up in the USA elections, the moderate wing has finally consolidated power rallying behind Joe Biden.  It's now a 2 person race between the Establishment candidate representing Big Corporate interests and the old party elites (Clinton camp) and the younger generations whom overwhelmingly support Saunders by huge margins.  Bernie is completed dominating the under 30 age vote college / rent / housing costs totally out of reach.  Average median income person in some metro markets would have to work 30 years just to save for downpayment on home.  This seems to be motivating the younger votes to rally behind Bernie.

Too soon it's very even match-up.  Looking kind of like 2016 all over again with the establishment candidate complete with baggage from pro-Iraq war vote, nepotism and servant of the big Delaware banks.  Biden got rushed on stage by 2 animal rights protestors.  2nd waited until the first one created distraction then rushed the stage.

DJ - It doesn't look as though Biden's history has affected his chances with the Democrats surprisingly with voters. I wouldn't expect an arm chair ride for him up against Trump ? Thanks for your assessment.

That`s all you need to know about duplicity. It was so OK, when talks was about   Assad prosecution by ICC, but the coin quickly flipped when it`s time to response about Afghanistan.

The Investigation would also cover Iraq and other recent conflicts. It's does speak volumes that ICC like the UN itself are setup to protect some and do the dirty work for others.

All the best. Australia is slipping into the same. Announcing  new measures stopping cruise ships and isolating others coming into the country etc. Pretty mush ready but there is always something you forget.

Yes and in 2018 Trump's leadership whom were in charge of Global Pandemic response hastily quit after National Security Council re-organization under John Bolton.  Which left vacant key position which was never replaced.  And almost the entire US supply chain is dependent on China.  

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2018/05/10/top-white-house-official-in-charge-of-pandemic-response-exits-abruptly/
 
COVID-19 virus was attributed to restaurant serving Bats.  This market in China is known to sell very high volumes of Bats.  The govt did finally shut it down but too late. Troubling they eat an animal widely known to carry viruses long before the COVID-19 outbreak.  Bats eat anything and everything notorious for carrying all sorts of diseases.  Beyond my comprehension why they would want to eat Bats in very high volumes.  I don't get it why do they eat Bats, to become a vampire maybe?

An usual development with COVID-19 in Italy. Was that the Italian Authorities called for help from EU countries but sadly none was forth coming. China however answered and is now giving aid and expert help - their experience vital in understand and beating it. Some would say so they should, but reasonable people would see the good intentions. Another is Great Britain. Their medical establishment can't cope and they put out a call to the EU also - resulted in no help. However GB has turned to Cuba and Venezuela two countries whose education system has turned out large numbers of good quality doctors and many specialists in viral issues. Both countries are sending as many doctors as they can afford to. Lets hope GB remembers this good deed.

Yeah, now they glorify Cuba, after decades of  blaming and calls for annihilation. 99% that they will return to old track after COVID, cheap two-faced whores.
