Beto O’Rourke


What are people looking for in a candidate during the 2018 midterm elections? Primarily, they want to bring the country back to civility from the environment that the Jerry Springer of politics, Donald Trump has created. They are looking for honesty, integrity, and politician’s ability to work with others across the aisle. Now, they believe they have found it in this candidate.

Texas’ enthusiastic, authentic, Representative Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), appeared with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on the Hardball University of Houston show. He has been running against Senate Ted Cruz (R-TX) and has a very good chance of winning, but only if people come out and vote.

Yet, this week, as part of his ongoing campaign to divide and conquer the country he is supposed to serve, the president is claiming that he has the power to override the Constitution with an executive order.

by TJ Coles

When we are forced into an economic system that makes us compete at every level, the logical outcome is societal decline or collapse.

5 major crops in the crosshairs of climate change


Climate change is coming like a freight train, or a rising tide. And our food, so dependent on rain and suitable temperatures, sits right in its path.

The plants that nourish us won’t disappear entirely. But they may have to move to higher and cooler latitudes, or farther up a mountainside. Some places may find it harder to grow anything at all, because there’s not enough water.

Here are five foods, and food-growing places, that will see the impact.
