[full section] Senator Marco Rubio vs Donald Trump's Secretary of State Pick Rex Tillerson at Confirmation Hearing 1/11/2017
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Very interesting dodgeball game Tillerson plays! He gives no hint of how he will view any daily world events. This will be like confirming a man locked in a locked black box no one can see into....He answers nothing critical does that we he knows nothing? Does he think the American public & Rubio are too stupid to comprehend his response or doe he even respect those he seeks to represent enough to offer a serious answer rather than a dodge? Perhaps he should have just sent a tweet rather than show up that said something like "I'll answer your questions if I feel like it after you confirm me".
Treasury Secretary nominee Steven Mnuchin said one of his priorities if confirmed would be to increase staff and modernize technology at the Internal Revenue Service -- a move that Republicans who control the agency’s budget may reject.
Billionaire investor George Soros will partner with Mastercard Inc on a venture they said could help migrants, refugees and others struggling within their communities worldwide to improve their economic and social status.
The winds of history are no longer at the back of George Soros's vast global foundation. But according to its president, Chris Stone, OSF is in a stronger position than ever to press the cause of civil society.
The man who would be president is also the name behind a string of high-end hotels. Inside his particular brand of luxury.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
The price of admission befits a luxury hotel. The cheapest available room on a July weekend at Trump International Hotel & Tower New York was $563 a night, according to a recent online search. At Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, it was $420 a night. That said, rooms are not always out of reach. For instance, one search turned up rooms at Trump International Hotel Las Vegas for $165 a night.
The United States remains the world's indispensable nation -- indispensable to international peace, security, and stability, and indispensable to safe-guarding and advancing the ideals and principles we hold dear.
Washington will turn into a virtual fortress ahead of Donald Trump's presidential inauguration on Friday as the U.S. capital braces for more than a quarter-million protesters expected during the Republican's swearing-in.
You're not imagining things: A new report confirms that wealthy donors really do have a much bigger footprint in the nonprofit world. What does this growing clout mean for the rest of us?
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
“The growth of inequality is mirrored in philanthropy,” said report co-author Chuck Collins. “As wealth concentrates in fewer hands, so does philanthropic giving and power. We believe this poses considerable risks to both our independent sector and democracy.” These risks are hardly hypothetical. They’ve been playing out for years, as noted earlier, a trend that accounts for a strong tilt of politics and public policy toward the wealthy, as the scholars Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson documented in their book, Winner-Take-All Politics: How Washington Made the Rich Richer—and Turned Its Back on the Middle Class. While most accounts of how the wealthy hijacked public policy focus on the role of campaign donors and lobbyists, the role of philanthropy has also been critical. Charitable giving has fueled the rise of a vast national and state infrastructure of policy and advocacy groups on the right that have advanced a range of policies that favor the wealthy, starting with tax cuts and deregulation. In a country where people tend to “bowl alone,” as Robert Putnam famously said, ordinary citizens have failed to respond by financing organizations to defend their economic interests in the halls of power. The unions that once helped do that have long been moribund.
Popper's concept of the open society is epistemological rather than political. When Popper wrote The Open Society and its Enemies , he believed that the social sciences had failed to grasp the significance and the nature of fascism and communism because these sciences were based on what he saw to be faulty epistemology.
I keep hearing how bad George Soros is..... I have to admit now the more I read about what he gives money to the more I think his heart is definitely in the right place for society. Sadly, most billionaires are not interested in investing in issues that affect or empower the average person or pitiful person that would offer a them a better chance in life unless it is tied to lining their own pockets and giving them the power to rule. This is an article about history and philosophical ideas.... With the hostile take over of the nation by bringing out all types of haters and high dollar donors (Vois), or their high representatives in industry (Tillerson) by Donald Trump it appears a peculiar type of modern tribalism may win. What do you think? Will Soros be wasting his money by pinning his hopes and his remaining fortune on the average man and woman to make their own wise choices for the future.
