Kurdish soldiers—female and male—defeated ISIS in Syria, with some help from US air power. The Kurdish community of Rojava is one of the most democratic in the world. For Trump to abandon them to autocrat Turkish President Erdogan, who has jailed thousands of political prisoners including thousands in solitary confinement, is unconscionable. But of course sociopaths don’t have a conscience, to say nothing of the strategic message this sends to possible allies and to ISIS. The Kurds deserve help from the US for moral and tactical reasons.

Why do Trump’s base continue to believe someone who has lied over 12,000 times since taking office, gets his news from TV while disregarding his intelligence agencies, reveals classified information, falsified the Dorian hurricane weather map with a Sharpie pen, scorns reading, attacks women (23 have spoken up publicly), used unprotected sex cheating on his third wife with a porn star, denies and accelerates climate change, blames brown and black people, separates babies from parents, makes fun of disabled people, loves dictators like Putin and Kim Jung Un and is rude to our allies, hurts farmers and others with his trade/tariff wars, costs taxpayers millions of dollars golfing 215 days at his golf clubs, is inarticulate, a narcissist sociopath? And the list goes on. James Zogby explains some Republicans see his character but are willing to make a deal with him to advance their anti-choice social agenda. His mostly white less-educated base of around 30% turns to him because they feel left out, angry, alienated, and disappointed, and he makes them feel empowered. Zolby concludes their real issues need to be addressed rather than disparaging them.
|The HeartMath Institute and Global Coherence Initiative|
We will be joining communities around the world in mass meditation using the Global Coherence app. To create this peace wave, our hope is to synchronize together and radiate heart to the world on Sept. 21, 2019 at 12:00 noon at your location.
The Global Coherence App created by HeartMath Institute connects people from all around the world who have a sincere desire to add heart to their daily lives and the world itself. The app enables anyone to join public groups. The app is free and does not require a sensor for you to actively participate. With a HeartMath pulse sensor, you can measure your individual coherence and view the coherence contribution to the Global Group as well. You can download the free app from Google Play or the App Store.
As part of this event, The Global Consciousness Project will be observing random number generators to see the degree to which our collective coherent fields can facilitate patterns as they evolve from chaos to coherence
