Bernie Sanders Enters 2020 Presidential Campaign, No Longer An Underdog

But this 2020 bid will undoubtedly be a very different presidential campaign than his quest for the Democratic nomination as an underdog in 2016. Sanders enters the race as a top contender who, along with former Vice President Joe Biden, tops most early polls, far outpacing other Democratic candidates in support and name identification.

It's a sharp contrast from when Sanders seemingly came out of nowhere to surprise the political class — a...

Rockefeller, Big Pharma Facing $1 Billion Lawsuit for Intentionally Infecting People With Syphilis

A federal judge recently approved a $1 billion lawsuit against Johns Hopkins University, Bristol-Myers Squibb Co (BMY.N) and the Rockefeller Foundation. The lawsuit is seeking restitution for victims who were intentionally infected with syphilis during government experiments in Guatemala during the 1940s. Hundreds of Guatemalans were reportedly infected with syphilis during the studies, which were designed to test the ability of penicillin to treat sexually transmitted diseases. The lawsuit was pending and waiting in limbo for the past four years until it was finally approved by U.S. District Judge Theodore Chuang last month. In 2015, when the lawsuit was originally filed, there were 750 victims seeking restitution, now there are only 444 plaintiffs and some remaining relatives. The details of the experiments were deliberately hidden from the world, and remained so until the Commission published its report in September 2011, confirming that barbaric human experiments constituting human rights violations occurred, for example: prostitutes were infected with venereal disease and then provided for sex to subjects for intentional transmission of the disease; subjects were inoculated by injection of syphilis spirochetes into the spinal fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord, under the skin, and on mucous membranes; an emulsion containing syphilis or gonorrhea was spread under the foreskin of the penis in male subjects; the penis of male subjects was scraped or scarified and then coated with the emulsion containing syphilis or gonorrhea; a woman from the psychiatric hospital was injected with syphilis, developed skin lesions and wasting, and then had gonorrheal pus from a male subject injected into both of her eyes. Many of the Guatemalans developed venereal disease. Most were never treated.

Walmart shares surge as holiday sales crush estimates, boosted by e-commerce growth

CEO Doug McMillon said "a favorable economic environment" has been helping Walmart grow sales and gain market share. That's after dismal December sales data released by the Commerce Department last week sparked some concern that Walmart also suffered during the holidays. But the retailer's results on Tuesday show shoppers continued to flock to its stores. And it also benefited from food stamps being released early because the recent U.S. government shutdown. Walmart reported net income for the quarter ended Jan. 31 of $3.69 billion, or $1.27 per share, compared with $2.18 billion, or 73 cents a share, a year ago. Excluding one-time items, Walmart earned $1.41 per share, 8 cents ahead of analysts' expectations based on a survey by Refinitiv. Sales at Walmart stores in the U.S. operating for at least 12 month were up 4.2 percent, topping expected growth of 3.2 percent. The company said traffic at stores was up just 0.9 percent during the quarter, compared with growth of 1.6 percent a year ago. The average shopper's ticket, however, grew 3.3 percent. A year ago, the average ticket was up just 1 percent.

    To be fair, this has been built up over a number of decades. US reliance on Saudi oil is the root of this problem, and that isn't a Trump thing, that goes back a long way. US presidents have been kissing butts of Saudi royals for decades, and for decades they've had a miserable human rights record to say the least.
