Read, Listen, Watch…

Dear Editor,

Read “Merchants Of Doubt,” written by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, explores the schemes of climate change deniers. “… they don’t have to win, they just have to create doubt and delay.”

Listen “Freedom Highway” by Rhiannon Giddens, operatically trained singer/songwriter, recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship “Genius Grant” Award in 2017. As the “New York Times put it, ‘the fervor of a spiritual, the yips of a folk holler, and the sultry insinuation of the blues.’” 

Watch “The Moon Is Down”, (1943) adapted from novel a John Steinbeck (1942), Written and produced to encourage the resistance movements in Nazi-occupied countries during the first years of WWII.

In closing:

Why is President Trump still concealing his tax returns?

What is the dirt that president Putin has on President Trump?

What is the pathology behind President Trump’s love of savage dictators and the slavish kowtowing demanded of his underlings? (Chicago Tribune, 6/14/2017, by columnist Rex Huppke)

Trump, his administration, accomplices and family are pathological liars, criminal profiteers and traitors to the Constitution and this country. Lock’em up!

Thank you.

Chris Mielke, USMC 1974-78
