Future campaigns will pick not just the issues and slogans a candidate should support, but also the candidate who should champion those issues. Temporal trends for different voter blocks might be compared to genetic and medical data to understand regional shifts in political leanings, thereby illuminating methods for slicing and dicing audiences in favor of or against a specified agenda.

The UK Government Is Banning The “Fake News” Label To Facilitate Censorship
In the context of fighting “fake news”, the UK is trying to improve the operational efficiency of its analysts by forcing them to discern between disinformation and misinformation instead of just lumping together whatever politically relevant narratives that they come across as “fake news” for convenience’s sake.
“Lady Liberty” Versus Lord Trump
America is the great nation today because it has been built on foundations of toil, hardships and acumen of its forefathers. They were migrants from across the world. It would be a sad travesty of justice if the United States turned away the hapless asylum-seekers from across its own border and denied them the opportunity for a safer, better life.
Germany’s Arms Suspension To Saudi Arabia Is Shooting The West In The Foot
Far from being incentivized to submit to a foreign country’s envisioned “political solution” to Khashoggi’s killing, Saudi Arabia is actually more encouraged than ever before to continue with the diversification of its erstwhile strategic dependency on the West by embracing the likes of Russia and even China in response to the EU’s pressure.
Trying To Finn-ish Us Off?
In recent years in addition to the sanctions that Finland is a part of, an unhealthy level of military activity is also occurring in that country. Finnish opposition leaders believe this activity is intended to push Finland — which is still officially neutral — into potential aggression against Russia.
India’s Economically “Multialigning” In The Midst Of The US-Chinese Trade War
The formerly Chinese-occupied niches that India is already planning to fill in the US marketplace could be a realistic starting point for beginning their free trade talks and deciding which spheres should be immediately prioritized. India is now an even more intense object of competition between the US and China than ever before.
Love, Peace, And Joy (III)
Some forms of Christian spirituality are built upon the false definition of joy as an emotion. For emotion can be induced, especially with music. Singing loudly and long can induce a kind of euphoria and a feeling of well-being, which is then equated with joy. In fact joy is not an emotion, and so can indeed be sustained.
China Is Challenging The US In Central America, And Washington Can’t Do Anything
Just as disturbing of a scenario for the US is if this has a knock-on effect that enhances Chinese influence in Mexico after its leftist president-elect AMLO takes office at the beginning of December, thereby representing an unprecedented challenge to the US’ political dominance in the entire Western Hemisphere.
Naming The Top Anti-Russian Advocates
Several names come to mind that IMO should make a top ten Russophobe list for 2018. Granted, the difficulty in choosing people for such, as there’re numerous individuals worthy of consideration.
Brazil’s Election Meddling Scandal Won’t Dent Bolsonaro’s Popularity
Trump’s Liberal-Globalist enemies are now targeting the so-called “Tropical Trump” as a proxy war against the leader who Bolsonaro’s praised on numerous occasions. Whatever ends up happening during this Sunday’s second round of voting, it’s undeniable that social media played a disproportionate role in shaping the voters’ perceptions, whether legally or not.
The Khashoggi Murder – Worse Than A Crime, A Mistake
Americans, who have been gulled by a multi-million-dollar PR blitz over the modernized ‘new’ Saudi Arabia, complete with a handful of female drivers and commercials about ‘empowered women,’ will begin to see what a corrupt, brutal regime they have so long and unquestionably supported.
The Croatian Role In The Destruction Of Yugoslavia In The 1990s (III)
Franjo Tudjman’s authoritarian regime in Croatia and the territorial expansionist policy of his HDZ’s ruling party during the bloody destruction of the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s were not noticed at all by the Western politicians, academicians and the global mass-media who, in contrast, accused “dictator”-President of Serbia Slobodan Miloshevic.
