The old adage about Groundhog Day is that if a groundhog emerges from its burrow and sees its shadow, winter will continue for six more weeks, whereas if it doesn’t see its shadow, spring will arrive early.

  1. Hey you .I have not read the New York Times since 1974 when I was in Greece visiting my families in Sparta, and read how the Junta was really a good thing for Greece, .who are simply fronts for the State Department of the United States to represent their interests, not of Greeks in America or Greece!

    TNH,Diamataris, and Theros …who writes articles gloryfying the humanitarian aid of the U.S government in invading, bombing, murdering , and committing crimes against humanity and war crimes to save the people of the independent countries of the world Iraq, libya, Syria, Afganistan, Yemen, lebanon, Vietnam, Yugoslavia.. ete, etc and dropping one bomb per minute of some country of the world!

    Or who glorify corrupt and indicted politicians like Ahepan Robert Menendez who have recieved millions of dollars from Jewish organization to represent the interests of Israel, over the citizens of America, which he calls gifts, but are monies embezzed from Medicare by some of Menendez best friends from the Jewish lobbies, now serving 20 years in a Federal Prison for fraud!

    Hey John.. while you must be thrilled by the propaganda articles which promote you fraudulent Greek Secret Societies and Hellenic organizations…which appoint themselves with the voice of Greeks…I find them offensive distorted narratives..which are easily refuted and exposed!

    Only 14% of the public trust TNH and MSM news..

    1. cont.

      Scaros., unlike you, I do not read any U.S newspaper or watch any state controlled media outlet .like CNN, Fox News, Washington Post ..CBS, .who are owned by the Corporate and Private billionaires of the world from Israel , to Saudi Arabia, to London, and of course Washington..all police states!.

      TNH and NYT media operate as press agents for dirty business as usual — controlling the message, suppressing alternative views, notably on geopolitical issues, as well as about political aspirants for peace and governance serving everyone equitably.

      John Swinton (1829-1901), A Journalist who worked as a writer for a newspaper, and had a career writing for more than a few stated in America, about the independent press…and perfectly describes what NYT …and now all your journalist represent..and sadly .destroy our democracy..…

      “There is not ONE of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did you know beforehand that it would never appear in print!

      I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with… The business of journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread…

      We are the tools of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes!“
