Quote: “…painted a shocking picture of Mexican society in what can only be described as a state of deep decay, even collapse. According to reports from the trial, drug cartels exert influence on everyone, from local police chiefs in border towns to the highest federal offices in Mexico City.”

Common Sense Interpretation


Is America Headed For A New Kind Of Civil War? Robin Wright, The New Yorker

Quote: “Mines concluded that the United States faces a sixty-per-cent chance of civil war over the next ten to fifteen years…Based on his experience in civil wars on three continents, Mines cited five conditions that support his prediction.”

CS Commentary: Usual liberal perspective, quoting a dubious source like the Southern Law Poverty Center, but still an interesting overall perspective, and insightful opinions, like this quote: “The lesson of the war that should never depart from us, is that the American people have no exemption from the ordinary fate of humankind. If we sin, we must suffer for our sins, like the Empires that are tottering and the Nations that have perished.” – Murat Halstead, The War Claims Of The South, 1867

Carly Fiorina: The Contrary Opinion Against Tariffs (video, right), Fox Business

CS Commentary: We were Carly supporters before we were Trump supporters, and we like her. But, the present round of tariffs has no comparison to Smoot Hawley (see Top 5 Reasons for Current Market Correction). In addition, there is no ‘free trade’ currently, ‘without the tariffs’ (since Europe, China and other nations have unilaterally been putting tariffs on US products for decades). To pretend like there is, is ludicrous. Of course, the Chinese are currently at the table because our tariffs are hurting and will hurt their economy. It is hard to know where Carly is coming from with this argument – another run for President in 2020, perhaps?

The Pope Is The Problem: Francis Has Mobilized Papacy Power Against Justice, Krumholz/Delahunty, The Federalist

Quote: “For all their deference to one another, the majority of the bishops appear to be good men who are seeking to do justice. But the dark center within that silver lining is the pope who commanded them to stand down. There is a rot and a stench coming from the Vatican. The pope is the problem.”

Exclusive Poll: Most Trusted News Anchors, Jeremy Barr, Hollywood Reporter

CS Commentary: Here’s a poll that explains a lot. Americans still don’t get that trusting NBC and CNN anchors means that they are buying into leftist propaganda – not only in presentation, but in selection of the news topics. Meanwhile, Greg Gutfeld and Juan Williams at Fox News score highest in the ‘Some trust’ category. Hmm.

CS Commentary: Fox News also had most of the top 10 shows. Fox Business beat CNBC for the second year straight. So why are we still forced to watch CNN in most airports, restaurants, and a lot of hotels? Please start complaining to the people in charge. As for the other, MSNBC, well, it was pre-Christmas. Conservatives were preparing for Christmas, liberals were going on with their lives as usual. Plus, this is Politico – we don’t trust that this is the whole story and will be looking for more.

Kevin Spacey Makes First Court Appearance Over Nantucket Charge Of Alleged Sexual Assault, Tatiana Siegel, Hollywood Reporter

House Of Cards, Season 6, TV Review, Daniel Feinberg, Hollywood Reporter

CS Commentary: This reviewer didn’t see the whole season. The first half is as good as any through the series and its true, you don’t miss Frank (Kevin Spacey). But, then it devolves into a confusing, complex mess of sub-plots and truncated scenes that leave you wondering if you need to be a genius to follow the plot. Then you not only miss Spacey, but the good writing team that apparently came with him. It all comes together at the end – but very unsatisfactorily.

Quotes Of The Month:

[On The Drama Triangle, featured above]

“[Out of the triangle….]The only way to “escape” the drama triangle is to function as an “adult” and not participate in the game.” – John Goulet, MFT, Breaking the Drama Triangle

“The rescuer is the classic co-dependent, enabling, overly protective – the one who wants to “fix it.” Taking care of others may be the rescuer’s best game plan for getting to feel worthwhile. There’s no better way to feel important than to be a savior!” – Linda Graham, MFT

“Self-accountability is the only way off the [drama triangle] grid for the persecutor. There has to be some kind of breakthrough to them to own their part. Unfortunately, because of their great reluctance to do so, it may have to come in the form of crisis.” – Lynne Forrest
