    If you like nuts, Trader Joe's is the way to go. Raw nuts. Blanched nuts. Nuts with seasoning on them. Nuts in general. Nuts. I like the raw nuts. Raw cashews. Raw hazelnuts. Raw almonds. All good for health and general well-being. But first, the train. I work in Manhattan so I need to take the train to get into work from Connecticut. Connecticut. Where they tax you much. Why did I move here? Well maybe it's better than living in New Jersey or Long Island. Much more trees in Connecticut, with the many rivers, brooks and lakes. Houses are...

    Maryland Democrat also calls for national single-payer health care systemSenate hopeful Chelsea Manning said sheíll work to abolish federal immigrations and customs agencies if successful in her bid to unseat U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin, Maryland Democrat. Ms. Manning, the former Army intelligence analyst convicted of leaking classified documents to the WikiLeaks website, listed eliminating both the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) as top priorities on her platform unveiled Thursday. ďWe believe the solution to the so called Ďimmigrationí issue, which amounts to nothing more than justification for ethnic cleansing in America, is not...

    <p>A challenge of this populist age is separating authentic outsiders with usefully unorthodox political perspectives from rank kooks looking to exploit a moment of open-mindedness.</p> <p>Roseanne Barr provides a good study.</p> <p>The popular reboot of her blue-collar sitcom after a two-decade slumber has been widely heralded as a populist victory by much of the pro-Trump Right, given the decision to cast Roseanneís character as a Trump voter. That Roseanne the woman is herself a Trump supporter only advances the notion that the show is a populist win, and many critics and viewers have offered the MAGA factor as the sole variable explaining the programís popularity. ďLook at her ratings!Ē cried the gleeful president himself after the showís debut.</p>

    Fear and Lying in Las Vegas Part V The FBI paid thousands of tax dollars for billboards around Nevada asking the public for tips about the Mandalay Bay massacre on Oct. 1 to help the Bureau Ďfind a motiveí for the mass shooting.

    Full title: Pelosi Warns: If Trump Uses Memo To Justify Firing Rosenstein Or Mueller, Will Trigger "Constitutional Crisis" House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told CBS News on Friday that "if the president uses this fake, horrible release of distorted intelligence as an excuse to fire [acting attorney general Rod] Rosenstein or [special counsel Robert] Mueller, it could lead to a constitutional crisis." "He has abdicated his responsibilities as commander in chief to protect the American people by protecting our intelligence sources and the rest," she said of Trump.

    Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said President Trump is "running a criminal enterprise" out of the White House. During a segment an MSNBC host said Trump is "constantly vacationing to promote his own properties." "The promotion is extraordinary. There hasn't been a president in my lifetime that's done anything like this," Dean said in response. "In the beginning, the constitutional business about the emoluments clause, which is you're not supposed to take foreign money to influence your policy, it didn't bother me, I thought it was a far-flung argument ó I'm not an attorney." But Dean said it...

    As someone who's always been outspoken and especially so about her politics, itís been an unexpectedly quiet year for Rosie OíDonnell. Donald Trump has publicly feuded with and bullied OíDonnell since December 2006, when she called him a ďsnake oil salesmanĒ during a segment on The View, on which she had a brief run as co-host. For years, Trump called OíDonnell a ďloserĒ and other epithets, bringing up OíDonnellís appearance as fodder in the primary debates during the 2016 presidential campaign. For her part, OíDonnell has publicly criticized Trump and his politics for over a decade, responding in protest on...

    The birth of Jesus Christ is the one of the most significant events in all of history and when we understand the truths regarding the true date of his birth it will thrill and inspire your heart. Tradition has made December 25th the birthday of Jesus. but the Bible clearly reveals he was not born on that day. It was not until the 4th century after Christ that December 25th began to be celebrated as the day of Christ’s birth. It was the old pagan holiday celebrating the winter solstice and the birth of the sun god and celebrated when...

Ruling issued Monday by Miami-Dade circuit judge Was signed into law in June by Gov. Rick Scott In ruling the law unconstitutional, Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Milton Hirsch said Monday that the changes should have been crafted by the Florida Supreme Court instead of by the Legislature. The Miami Herald reports that the 14-page order is a victory for prosecutors who have firmly opposed the law. Critics have said the law makes it easier for defendants to get away with murder...

    Clinton public appearances dominated by increasingly bizarre election defeat claims Hillary Clinton spoke to Goldman Sachs for the very simple reason that she got paid, the former Democratic presidential candidate told an audience at Recodeís annual coding conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Clinton took the opportunity to blame numerous players for her election defeat on Nov. 8, and also to justify her use of the term ďvast right-wing conspiracyĒ all the way back in 1998. The ďconspiracyĒ against her, she suggested, is still alive. Clinton, speaking to Recode founders Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, said she didnít lose because...

A few months later, when Trump tapped Bannon to serve as a key adviser to his campaign, Beck raised the alarm again, declaring that Bannon was ďquite possibly the most dangerous guy in all of American politics.Ē Now that Trump has announced that Bannon will serve chief strategist and senior adviser in the White House, Beck issued...
