FROM David Sarno
UFO Images on YouTube Have Believers, Skeptics Debating The videos " UFO Haiti " and " UFO Dominican Republic " recently hit the "most viewed" list on YouTube. As UFO's pass over the island shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic, "wind whips through palm trees, dogs bark and a woman gasps in disbelief--all very real seeming. The jerky, amateur camera work could easily be that of a panicked Caribbean tourist." That's according to a story in today's Los Angeles Times by David Sarno, who admits that even the creator finds public reaction "a little scary."
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
Who's to blame for the opioid crisis? Some of the lawyers who took on Big Tobacco are now going after Big Pharma. It’s all about the deadly epidemic of opioid use. Are the drug companies to blame? What about the users? Later, on today’s Talking Point: making sense of Britain’s upset election.
