The explosive difference between a flag honoring in a pre-game show of proud and comfortable patriotism with young Americans smartly saluting, and the flag in a flash back to 2011 and a small African nation’s brave and desperate show of patriotism in the face of its destruction was described at the Nuremberg Trials. Seek truth!

Although I voted for Jill Stein this year and for Obama in his first term, I am so glad Trump won.
I admit that I am late to the game. It started at the age 58 in 2008. That is when I became an activist. 15,000 hours of research later, 3 remixed films, dozens of videos, 3 websites, a magazine prototype, blah blah, blah and here I am. My take away from all of this is that government routinely omits, deceives and lies to the public in an attempt to engineer our perceptions and control our beliefs and opinions. MSM (mainstream media) is the principle agent of this deception.
Here is a photo of Brattleboro from high in sky taken by my brother from his small plane. Enjoy! I had two more photos that I wanted to share here but they are too big to be shown here.
I was very wrong about this election. I started saying "It's going to be Hillary" back in June and I said it so many times, I started to believe it myself. Clinton had it in the bag, a done deal. I couldn't imagine a scenario in which Trump could win, given all the negative stories about him and the number of people who seemed to hate him. And then Trump got out to an early lead and stayed there. I was confused at first, and almost as incredulous as the PBS News Hour staff at midnight on Election Day -- where were those big piles of Hillary votes that were going to drop in at the last minute to save the day? They just weren't there. All the same, I bravely went to bed shortly after 1 AM thinking, when I wake up, maybe it'll be different -- or at least, I'll be better able to deal with it. But, when I woke up very early the next morning, my partner in crime, who had stayed up to see the final results, muttered sleepily, "President Trump," and I knew the unimaginable had happened. Donald Trump, President of the United States. Even now, it feels weird to type it.

Current US President elect denounced the “death and destruction” brought down on the the Middle East under the outgoing Democratic administration Obama and Sec. of State Hillary. If the wholesale and genocidal destruction of 3 wealthy Arab oil nations is now a discredited activity by US President-elect Donald Trump how the hell can Americans who are veterans of bringing about this “death and destruction” be hailed as heroes?
The attached jpg file documents inexplicable anomalies between the presidential election results and exit polls, based on screen shots of news broadcasts taken election night by Jonathan Simon of Code Red.
According to the exit polls, which were conducted by Edison Research for the National Election Pool, a consortium of ABC News, The Associated Press, CBSNews, CNN, Fox News and NBC News, Clinton won four key battleground states (NC, PA, WI, and FL) in the 2016 Presidential Election that she went on to lose in the computerized vote counts. With these states Clinton would have won the Electoral College with a count of 302 versus 205 for Trump. Clinton also won the national exit poll by 3.2%, according to the exit polls, but only received a narrow lead in the reported vote count.

Montreal (AFP) - Leonard Cohen, the storied musician and poet hailed as one of the most visionary artists of his generation, has died at age 82.
He was able to sum everything up in one simple sentence:
“Everybody knows the deal is rotten: Old Black Joe’s still pickin’ cotton. Everybody knows.”
Brattleboro’s budget season kicks off in earnest at the next regular Tuesday night meeting of the selectboard at the Municipal Center. They begin with a discussion of revenues as well as capital projects and equipment planned for FY18.

I am writing to thank a number of people who worked to make the voting positive experience for most voters. Many members of the Board of Civil Authority who are your elected Justices of the Peace, as well as the Town Constables, the employees of the Town Clerk’s Office and nearly two dozen volunteers provided voters with a smooth and professional environment for voting.

Earth’s moon is the largest planetary satellite relative to the size of its planet. Throughout its orbit it always shows the same face and this weekend it will shine down on us in one of its rare closest approach. The forecast indicates that this Saturday and Sunday will be sunny and clear, so hopefully viewing the Moon will be unimpeded at night.
The face of the Moon is arguably the most visual motif for countless subjects represented in the arts, literature and culture throughout all civilizations. According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the Algonquin tribes and American colonists called the November full moon the Beaver Moon because it was the time to “set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs."

Starting in mid- to late November, Cantor Kate Judd will be offering an eighteen week class at the Brattleboro Area Jewish Community in West Brattleboro, exploring some of Judaism’s many facets. Using the Union for Reform Judaism’s , but jumping off in the directions that are prompted by discussion, the class will consider how Judaism approaches life cycle events, God, worship and spirituality, holidays, personal responsibility, justice and mercy, partnership and family life, and more.
