It is no surprise that Mika Brzezinski, the cohost of the "Morning Joe" show on MSNBC, is opposed to Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump. After all, she comes from a solid liberal background. Her father was Zbigniew Brzezinski, the National Security adviser to President Jimmy Carter. Mika Brzezinski has reported that Ms. Conway really hates Trump and is really in it just for the money. That's a dubious claim at best.After leaving government, her father joined with David Rockefeller, chairman of the Chase Manhattan Bank, to co-found the Trilateral Commission, a Washington, D.C. think tank. There have been... [Read More]

Since 1954, select global elite power brokers from around the world have covertly met annually to secretly discuss and implement economic and geostrategic policies that have affected the future destiny of the planet. The 2017 Bilderberg gathering begins today in Chantilly, Virginia. Here is a list of this year's 131 invitees. Rest assured the absence of recently departed David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski will be noted at the confab.

Best remembered by the American public as President Jimmy Carter's National Security Adviser and co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, Zbigniew Brzezinski has died. Founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller and Brzezinski, the Trilateral Commission embarked on a New International Economic Order based on Technocracy. Brzezinski called this the "Technetronic Era" in his 1970 book, Between Two Ages. Zbigniew Brzezinski quotes from Between Two Ages: America's Role in the Technetronic Era: "The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to... [Read More]

A recent letter to the editor (May 10) slandered the good works and international reputation of the recently deceased David Rockefeller. The writer (Frank Thiboutot) accused Mr. Rockefeller of "dark politics," assaulting "traditional Christian social values" and pushing for "open borders, refugee resettlement, secret trade deals …, abortion and homosexual marriages." For these (among other) "nefarious" acts, the writer rejected any recognition of Mr. Rockefeller's bequest of $25 million to Maine organizations, which was properly applauded in an earlier edition of the Portland Press Herald.

If it's not too late, I'd like to applaud the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram for devoting so much time, resources and good old-fashioned empathy to casualties of the opioid crisis here in Maine. The March 26-April 4 "Lost" series was stellar, its most admirable upshot being the determined humanization of these people. The break-out biographies in particular effectively illustrated the breadth of the issue and the breadth of people who are sadly pulled into this vortex, many by something we've traditionally seen as safe and palliative: a doctor's visit.

Dr. Ronald Housley's May 6 letter to the Portland Press Herald, warning that the movement to create a single-payer system is a violation of our "strong, individual rights-protecting nation," is a stretch. Democrats and Republicans supported the creation of a Veterans Affairs single-payer system of health care for our veterans. Medicare was created as a safety net for our elders. If one adds in Medicaid, nearly 60 percent of our population is already covered by one form or another of government health insurance. Related Headlines Letter to the editor: Sen.

Kudos to Jeanne A.K. Hey for her Maine Voices column regarding the proliferation of TV screens in public spaces (May 2). To her list of establishments in which screens are now greeting the public, let me add banks and credit unions. When my local credit union was remodeled recently, not one, but three giant screens were installed in the lobby. The huge display behind the tellers was showing the news, the one located to the right was broadcasting more news, and the one in a waiting area on the left featured sports coverage.

Prolific letter writer Tom Foley purports to know what my husband and I will do if Maine keeps adding surcharges to our income tax bill ("No one leaving Maine just to avoid 3% tax surcharge," April 23). Meanwhile, Lori Moses (Maine Voices, April 20) supports the universal family care bill. Ms. Moses, who operates a day care center and will thus benefit financially from the bill's passage, argues in favor of the bill for seven paragraphs, only mentioning how it would be paid for in one lonely sentence, stating that Maine's "wealthiest" need to contribute their "fair share."
