Facebook Will Release 3000 Russia-Linked Election Ads To Congress

Given that these ads supposedly were responsible for swaying the election in Trump's favor - not, say, the many miscalculations undertaken by the Clinton campaign, the undersampled polls which gave the Hillary nearly 100% confidence she would win, or the inherent failings of the Democrats' scandal-tarnished candidate - we imagine they'll eventually make their way into the public domain, considering Mueller's investigation has proven to be a sieve for sensitive materials.

In a statement released shortly after the Politico story broke, Facebook General Counsel Colin Stretch said the company made its decision after "an extensive legal and policy review" and that the company remains "deeply committed to safeguarding user content, regardless of the users' nationality, and ads are user content."

Listening to the Donald at the UN – The Saker

No matter how bad things look now, Hillary President would have been infinitely worse!

In conclusion, what I take away from Trump's UN speech is a sense of relief for the rest of the planet and a sense of real worry for the US. Ever since the Neocons overthrew Trump and made him what is colloquially referred to as their “bitch” the US foreign policy has come to a virtual standstill.

Sure, the Americans talk a lot, but at least they are doing nothing. That paralysis, which is a direct consequence of the internal infighting, is a blessing for the rest of the planet

U.S. Near Bottom In Public Trust Of Newsmedia

According to the most extensive study ever done of the public’s usages of, and trust in, the newsmedia in their country — a study that (in late January early February) scientically sampled thousands of people in each one of 36 different industrialized countries — the United States scored #28, which was in the bottom 22% of all 36 nations, regarding the public’s trust of the newsmedia. However, the average American had a 53% level of trust in the news-sources he or she is relying on.

Driving Miss Crazy: Morgan Freeman Declares War on Russia at Rob Reiner's Behest

Social media is awash with outrage after Hollywood megastar Morgan Freeman appeared in a propaganda video issued by a newly-established anti-Russian non-profit group, in which he declares Washington is at war with Moscow.

Morgan Freeman is an almost universally beloved figure in the West, and his famed golden voice almost universally beloved across the West, so it's understandable why the newly-established Committee to Investigate Russia might choose him to front its propaganda campaign.

However, initial reactions to the clip on social media suggest the move might've been a titanic misfire, as even supporters of the #TheRussiansDidIt hypothesis criticizing the group, and slamming the video's incendiary tone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder what a forensic accounting of the group sponsoring this video would reveal about who actually paid for this?!?

The "cozying up" between the US government/military and "Hollowood", over decades, is no big secret.

Shell corporations, posing as non-profits, are a common feature in the American business landscape these days.

Any professional respect I once had for this very capable actor, which was huge, has just been shattered into absolute oblivion.

Did he not realise, upon accepting the gig, which was allegedly fronted by Rob Reiner, that he is actually working for the military/industrial complex of the Occupied, Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika?!?

Because the ultimate "winner" in the ratcheting up of tensions between the OUSSA and Russia, will be only that warmongering gang of thugs which manufacture weapons, in terms of more huge outlays in military spending, as the Deep State is actually planning to go to war against Russia AND China, to prevent the rise of the ruble and yuan against the petrodollar.

Washington plans to Nuke Russia and China

And how many defense companies may be in Rob Reiner's financial portfolio at this moment?!?

He is rumored to be worth 60 million in net worth at this point in his career

Did all of that come only from residuals and socially conscious investing?!? One has to wonder.

Daily Beast, Providing No Evidence, Says Russia Organized Pro-Trump Rallies

'I'll go down to the Godd***** floor myself and stop it!' Leaked video is released of MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell launching eight-minute foul-mouthed rant to employees over 'insanity in my earpiece'

MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell normally comes across as a mild-mannered, calm on-air presence.

That's why a video which was leaked Wednesday showing him lose his temper and drop F-bombs during the August 29 taping of his nightly political talk show is so surprising.

The left-leaning O'Donnell is seen growing increasingly agitated at his staff over an earpiece malfunction.

Oh my God, Morgan Freeman declares war on Russia!

If I’d said the words ‘Morgan Freeman’ to you earlier this week, and asked what they meant to you, I’m sure you’d have replied along the lines of: ‘Kind and friendly looking elderly actor with a rich speaking voice who specializes in playing benign roles- including God.

I’m sure you would not have said: ‘Idiotic front man for a hard-right neocon operation backed by Bush-era warmongers and a former Director of National Intelligence to demonize Russia and make the new Cold War even colder.’

Sadly, that’s what The Morg has become.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wouldn't worry about it. Back in 2005 Morgan Freeman said we were at war with the Martians!

REPORT: President Trump Has Decided to Refuse to Certify Iran's Nuclear Deal Compliance

NBC is reporting , citing several sources, that President Trump will refuse to certify that Iran is in compliance with the terms of the nuclear deal, the JCPOA, and he will do so before the October 15 deadline to report to Congress on Iran’s performance.

President Trump is leaning toward decertifying the Iran nuclear deal and putting the decision of whether the U.S. will withdraw from the accord in the hands of Congress>>>

Just Say No to Early Christmas Decorations or Bah Humbug!!!!!!

These big-box stores need to put back Christmas displays until after Thanksgiving or at least a week before Black Friday. The early Christmas promotion has become absurd. I remember watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade every year and the last float had Santa Clause. I would not surprise me if Santa Clause appears in the St Patrics parade as the last float while Easter has not arrived yet.. I hope they do not go over the top with promoting Christmas season going to the extreme.

The Big Box store Claire and I go to have their Christmas stuff up already!

How the UN Covers for US Aggression

UN is not out to get the U.S. Rather, it has largely been America’s tool since its inception, it has repeatedly covered Uncle Sam’s overly-exposed butt as he (a.k.a. “the royal we”) has gone around the world on a three decade-long military bender since the end of the Cold War.

And therein lies the truly pernicious part of the Trumped-up case against the U.N. … because, like so much of America’s growing cult of grievance, it reflects an ever-widening gap between America’s stated ideals and its self-serving behavior around the world.

Trump’s Embarrassing UN Speech

The arrogance conveyed by Trump’s speech is unprecedented.

I wonder if whoever wrote the deplorable speech intended to embarrass Trump and inadvertently embarrassed America as well, or whether the speechwriter(s) is so imbued with the neoconservative arrogance and hubris of our time that the speechwriter was simply blind to the extraordinary contradictions that stood out like sore thumbs all through the speech.

BEX ALERT - North Korea defector saw 11 musicians 'blown to bits' by anti-aircraft guns then 'ground into dirt' by tanks

A defector who fled Kim Jong-Un’s inner circle has told how she witnessed first hand the brutality the dictator unleashes on his oppressed people.

Hee Yeon Lim risked her own life to lift the lid on the paranoid North Korean leader who casually orders the ­executions of anyone he deems to have crossed him or his party.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now that we are set for war with N. Korea, here come the stories of N. Korean defectors. Sounds familiar? Just like Iraqi defectors who turned out to be liars later who filled the media reports about the cruelty of Saddam. Ditto Assad. Ditto Gaddafi. Ditto Ahmadinejad. Ditto ....

Moscow wonders what Russian flag has to do with BBC story on jihadist propaganda in UK

The Russian Embassy in the UK was outraged after a BBC story about online jihadist propaganda in the UK featured a Russian flag. Moscow wondered what the tricolor has to do with extremists on British soil.

The BBC article dubbed ‘UK 'biggest audience' in Europe for jihadist web content’ appeared on the website on Tuesday. The report cited a study by the Policy Exchange think tank, saying that “online jihadist propaganda attracts more clicks in the UK than any other country in Europe.”

The think tank doesn’t mention Russia at all in its 131-page long report. Nor does the BBC story.

However, the cover picture for the story featured vague figures with smartphones against the background of the Russian white-blue-red tricolor.

Rob Reiner and Morgan Freeman Declare ‘War’ on Russia

“People always joke that he’s the voice of God,” Rob Reiner says of Morgan Freeman. And while that is a role Freeman has portrayed in multiple films, he also has some experience playing the president of the United States.

The first time the Oscar-winning actor took on the role of president, in 1998’s Deep Impact, he was charged with protecting the human race from a giant comet. In a video released Tuesday for Reiner’s newly formed Committee to Investigate Russia, Freeman addresses a different type of existential threat.

“We have been attacked,” Freeman says into the camera. “We are at war.”

The actor is talking about the coordinated cyber attacks that intelligence agencies believe Russia executed against the U.S. in an effort to elect Donald Trump. “We need our president to speak directly to us and tell us the truth,” Freeman says, as he sits behind a desk and delivers the message he and Reiner want to hear from Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I just lost all respect for Morgan Freeman.

The Daily Show’s Perfect Response Took Trump Down Hard For His Childish UN Speech

The Daily Show had the perfect response to Trump’s UN speech. They put out a video framing Trump as a troubled seven-year-old boy who was allowed to address the UN.
(*Video at source)
The video, even though it was a parody, perfectly captured the tone of Trump’s speech to the UN. Trump is the grown man-child who desperately wants to prove that he belongs with the adults, but can’t save himself from his own childish outbursts.

CNN Claims FBI Wiretapped Former Trump Campaign Chairman

CNN has broadcast “breaking news” alleging that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was wiretapped by the FBI over alleged “Russian links” for substantial periods of time between 2014 and 2017.

The claims have been made public just days after Jason Maloni, a representative of Manafort, testified before a grand jury at the US District Court in Washington last Friday. Maloni was subpoenaed to appear by special counsel Robert Mueller, who heads the Justice Department investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Google and Sex Traffickers Like Backpage.com

Sex traffickers in America have the police and prosecutors pursuing them, but they do have one crucial (if secret) ally: Google.

Google’s motto has long been “Don’t be evil,” and I admire lots about the company. But organizations it funds have for years been quietly helping Backpage.com, the odious website where most American victims of human trafficking are sold, to battle lawsuits from children sold there for sex.

Now Google is using its enormous lobbying power in Washington to try to kill bipartisan legislation that would crack down on websites that promote sex trafficking.

It’s not that Google is taking ads from Backpage (it doesn’t) or giving it money. But as Backpage fights off prosecutors and worries about the legislation, the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act, Google has emerged as its behind-the-scenes champion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, Google; now is the time to walk your talk, and don't be evil; support this bill!!

Why Is Google Hiring 1,000 Journalists To Flood Newsrooms Around America?

So what do you do when you fail to elect your chosen candidate and your former political allies and mainstream media turn against you by painting you not as the 'progressive', open-minded, friendly tech company that you used to be but as an evil, racist, Russian-colluding corporate villain intent upon destroying all that is sacred in the world? Well, you just buy the media, of course.

As Poynter notes today, after a series of public relations debacles in recent weeks, from the firing of James Damore to news last week that Google's algos served up some fairly disturbing keywords to potential advertising buyers (e.g. "Why Do Black People Ruin Neighborhoods"), Google is ramping up its media presence with the announcement that the Google News Lab will be working with Report For America (RFA) to hire 1,000 journalists all around the country.

Under normal circumstances, I would have simply provided links, but considering the topic I will be discussing, and how some things suddenly “disappear” on the Internet, full-length quotes is probably the best option. The topic I want to deal with is the brutal crackdown on free speech by the AngloZionist Empire by means of its ‘loyal corporations’.

Removing Offensive Monuments

The eyesore presidential libraries

The social justice warrior charge to purge the United States of all monuments relating in any way to the Confederacy has been rapidly expanding to include the scourge represented by all white people all through history.

Now, I would suggest that turnabout is fair play so if we are all agreeing that monuments must be destroyed to right historic wrongs, I am interested in making up my own little list based on the things that I disapprove of. As readers of this site are aware, I am a critic of illegal behavior by the United States government, to include torture, targeted assassinations by drone and starting wars without any reason to do so, so that would be a good place to start.

I asked you to name me a single successful US military intervention since WWII and you could name none. Good!

Did you notice that there was no Islamic State in Iraq before the US invasion?

I don’t think that millions of murdered people, including hundreds of thousands of children, are “mistakes” (how would you react it somebody conceded to you that Hitler and Stalin made “mistakes”?). But there is something even more insidious in this notion of “mistake”.

63-minute video: National school safety expert Wolfgang Halbig explains the evidence he sees that Sandy Hook was a scripted false flag event, going to court on Nov. 15th in $55 million ‘parent’ lawsuit that might reveal the truth

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

I wrote on this topic in 2014, and recently contributed that the average age giving birth of 36 for the 20 women claiming to be the victims’ mothers have probabilities against such relatively elderly mothers from 109 quintillion to one if we embrace national data that just one in eleven mothers would be 35 or older giving birth, to an extremely unrealistic 95 trillion to one if we assume one in 5 Sandy Hook mothers would be 36 or older giving birth (see article and comments for analysis). Another person with academic and professional expertise with statistical analysis concluded the odds of 20 such elderly mothers is 62, 482, 742, 574, 637, 216, 553 to one (that’s 62 quintillion to one), and it is 812 million times more likely that the alleged victims were born in 1996 rather than 2006 (the “official” story).

The above links have abundant other areas of proof.

At first, the backlash was limited to Twitter, talk shows, and ESPN viewers on on social media. Then, things got ratcheted-up quite a bit last Wednesday when White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, called Hill’s comments “outrageous.” In addition to claiming that Hill’s tweets represented a “fireable” event for ESPN.

ARE FACEBOOK AND GOOGLE THE NEW COLONIAL POWERS?

To qualify as colonial powers, Facebook and Google must effectively limit the choices and power of users, and punish or coerce those who question or resist their power.

I was struck by a phrase from a recent essay on advertising and social media,You Are the Product:As Taplin points out, that remark 'unwittingly revealed a previously unspoken truth: Facebook and Google are the new colonial powers.'

As you've no doubt noticed, the dominance of Facebook and Google in online advertising is now "in the news" for a variety of reasons: the possibility that agents of other governments influenced U.S. elections with media buys on Facebook; anti-trust concerns; the potential for these advert-tech giants to effectively silence legitimate online voices under the guise of limiting "fake news", and of course, the ongoing issues of click fraud and the underperformance of digital ads.

An old order that's been in place for generations that kept a lid on the kind of chaos we've seen in recent months has crumbled.

FORMER FACEBOOK EXECUTIVE SAYS GOOGLE, FACEBOOK ARE ‘SURVEILLANCE STATES’

Even though he was once an executive at Facebook, Chamath Palihapitiya, CEO of Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings, favors investing in Amazon instead, he told CNBC's "Fast Money: Halftime Report" on Thursday.

President Donald Trump has been a critic of Amazon, tweeting his disdain for coverage from The Washington Post, which is a personal holding of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. But Palihapitiya said he thinks that Facebook and Google face more regulatory risk, given the many retailers that compete with Amazon.

"Amazon is a microscopic portion of global consumption today, so ultimately I think it has more room to grow before it invites regulatory overview," Palihapitiya said. "On the other hand, Facebook and Google effectively are surveillance states. And they have so much personal, private information about so many citizens of so many countries."

Google has already had a tussle with regulators in Europe, after the company was slapped with a record fine in one investigation.

In his written reply to the Times’ editors, government spokesman Zoltán Kovács takes issue with the newspaper’s presumption in trying to teach Europeans how to solve their migrant crisis while continuing “to show just how much they don’t understand.”

The United Nations is marching ahead with its task of acting as the Anglo-Financier administrative arm of the world corporate-financier government structure with its recent “report” aimed at the Syrian government. According to Western corporate media outlets who are reporting the story with unconcealed glee, the United Nations “war crimes investigators” produced a report blaming the Syrian government for chemical weapons attacks at Khan Sheikhoun and nearly two dozen other incidents.

The United Nations team stated that there had been 33 incidents investigated; 27 were the fault of the Syrian government and perpetrators had not yet been identified in the other seven. In other words, all of the alleged chemical weapons incidents were the fault of the Syrian government except for the ones they have yet to determine.

However, there are many problems with the stance of the report, its methodology, and its purpose...

ADL CAMPUS GUIDE DESCRIBES HOW TO BLOCK EVENTS ABOUT PALESTINE

The ADL (Anti-Defamation League) has just launched a new initiative for college students called “ADL CAMPUS: Tools for Dealing with Anti-Semitic and Anti-Israel Incidents on Campus.”

This resource contains much useful information about addressing anti-Semitism, endorses such valuable principles as freedom of speech and non-violence, and recommends that students talk to others who may hold different perspectives.

It also, however, contains some deeply problematic components for anyone who believes that human rights and justice should apply to all people without exception.

Unfortunately, the ADL does not share this belief. While it announces prominently, “We protect the Jewish people and secure justice and fair treatment to all,” in reality the ADL supports Israeli injustice against Palestinians.

Its recent campus resource exemplifies this, and distorts facts and words in order to do so.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Conflating any logical, reasonable, and documentable criticism of the nation of Israel for how it treats the Palestinian people with anti-semitism is Orwellian to a point that I just cannot describe, and massively combats the foundational principal of free speech, and equal rights for all people.

The federal government moved on Wednesday to wipe from its computer systems any software made by a prominent Russian cybersecurity firm, Kaspersky Lab, that is being investigated by the F.B.I. for possible links to Russian security services.

Remember when Wikileaks Exposed Clinton/Podesta As Occultists?

The Government Begins Censorship Of Media Through Disingenuous Means

The death of free speech is imminent. Anyone with access to a computer and the internet can see that the United States mainstream media is nothing more than a propaganda machine designed to brainwash the masses into a lemming-like agreement with the government.

And now, it’s oh-so-ironic that the same government that tells the media what to report on in order brainwash the public is seeking to quiet those who disagree and label them as “propaganda.” Some may call it fake news, others just want a different opinion rather than the left-leaning media hysteria we are accustomed to. But now, media outlet RT (Russia Today), founded in Russia will have to register with the United States as “foreign media;” which will forever give it the inaccurate title of “propaganda.”

9/11 Dust Report: CNN Should Dust Off Its Editorial Standards

Junk epidemiological studies are rather like pigeons in New York—an omnipresent nuisance that you learn to live with and ignore and hope they don't make too much of a mess. It's too bad that CNN didn't have the judgment to do this. Instead, the network took what is just about the worst study to ever fly the coop and not only ran with it but also sensationalized it by using both children's health and the September 11th terrorist attacks as manipulative hooks. Shameless.

Gatekeeper of DC Society Sally Quinn Comes Out as Occultist, Used Hex to Kill People

You and I, meaning Normal People, we look at our Thought Leaders, our Media and Cultural Overlords, our Ruling Class, and oftentimes wonder how they can be so venal and dishonest in pursuit of what they want — and what they want most of all is control over the lives of us Normal People, those of us who do not want to control anyone. We just want to be left alone.

How many times have we asked, How do they live with themselves? All the lies they tell, the innocent people they destroy, the fake news they publish, the character assassination, the stoking of racial conflict, the hate campaigns, the advocating of violence, the unending cultural bigotry against those of us just minding our own business… How do they sleep at night?

Has The NYT Gone Collectively Mad?

For those of us who have taught journalism or worked as editors, a sign that an article is the product of sloppy or dishonest journalism is that a key point will be declared as flat fact when it is unproven or a point in serious dispute – and it then becomes the foundation for other claims, building a story like a high-rise constructed on sand.

BEX ALERT - Conservative media dominated coverage of 2016 campaign, report finds

If you thought that media coverage during the 2016 presidential election seemed, more often than not, to boost Donald Trump and criticize Hillary Clinton, you didn't imagine it, a new report says.

According to the report from Harvard's Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, which applied data analysis techniques to 2 million election stories to understand better what people were reading and sharing, Trump not only got the most attention from media outlets across the political spectrum, but his preferred core issues—immigration, jobs and trade— received significant coverage and were widely shared online. In contrast, news about Clinton focused negatively on her family charitable foundation, her use of a private email server as U.S. secretary of state, and the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, the study found.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mt recollection of last year was a media that constantly attacked Trump and boosted Hillary!

Chinese government sources tell the WSJ they're about to shut down all domestic Bitcoin exchanges

China's "economic miracle" has been accompanied by mass-scale looting, creating a class of super-rich, corrupt millionaires and billionaires to rival the US or Russia; these 1%ers know that their wealth is subject to the whims of the Politburo, which is why they are so anxious to acquire second passports, and to exfiltrate their cash through baroque schemes, anodyne scams, and runaway property speculation.

Latest Attack on Sputnik a 'Symptom of a US Media Unused to Competition'

WELCOME TO 1984: BIG BROTHER GOOGLE NOW WATCHING YOUR EVERY POLITICAL MOVE

Google has taken the unprecedented step of burying material, mostly from websites on the political right, that it has deemed to be inappropriate. The problem, however, is that the world's largest search engine is a left-leaning company with an ax to grind.

Let's face it, deep down in our heart of hearts we knew the honeymoon wouldn't last forever. Our willingness to place eternal faith in an earth-straddling company that oversees the largest collection of information ever assembled was doomed to end in a bitter divorce from the start. After all, each corporation, just like humans, has their own political proclivities, and Google is certainly no exception. But we aren't talking about your average car company here.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The short answer, if you do not want your life surveilled by Google, is to use alternative search engines which are censorship free, like Yandex, or DuckDuckGo, while you still can.

RON PAUL: POLICE STATE WAS PLANNED, 9/11 JUST ‘PROVIDED AN OPPORTUNITY’ TO IMPLEMENT IT

Sept. 11, 2001, is remembered for a number of reasons, and one of the most important, which often goes unnoticed, is that it was used as an excuse to degrade the liberties of Americans through the passage of the USA PATRIOT Act.

The Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act was signed into law by President George W. Bush on Oct. 26, 2001—just 45 days after 9/11. The act passed in the Senate with a vote of 98-1, and it passed in the House with a vote of 357-66.

Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul was one of the few who voted against the act when he was in the House of Representatives, and he has been speaking out against it ever since. Paul is also known for his presidential campaigns, and when he was seeking the Republican nomination in the 2012 election, he reminded the world of one of the most crucial aspects of the PATRIOT Act.

Do You Trust Snopes? You Won’t After Reading This.

The big players in the GMO and agrochemical industry – Monsanto, Bayer, Dow, Syngenta, DuPont – are engaging in an extensive public relations, advertising, lobbying and political campaigning to make sure that genetically engineered crops (GMOs), and the chemical pesticides they require, continue to proliferate in the U.S.

To improve their public image, they are attempting to manipulate everything we see and hear about GMO crops and pesticides in the media and on TV, the internet and print articles – using propaganda-laden commercials, “mommy-blogger” articles, farmer endorsements, hired operatives to change Wikipedia, and front group websites. The biotech industry is feeling threatened, and their profits hang in the balance. They are trying to silence the truth!

We now have evidence that the website Snopes.com is being manipulated by the industry too. But first, let’s examine what Snopes really is…

Washington DC’s Role Behind the Scenes in Hollywood Goes Deeper Than You Think

It is a matter of public record that the Pentagon has had an Entertainment Liaison Office since 1948. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) established a similar position in 1996. Although it was known that they sometimes request script changes in exchange for advice, permission to use locations, and equipment like aircraft carriers, each appeared to have passive, and largely apolitical roles.

Files we obtained, mainly through the US Freedom of Information Act, show that between 1911 and 2017, more than 800 feature films received support from the US government’s Department of Defence (DoD), a significantly higher figure than previous estimates indicate. These included blockbuster franchises like Transformers, Iron Man, and The Terminator.

On television, we found over 1,100 titles received Pentagon backing – 900 of them since 2005, from Flight 93 to Ice Road Truckers to Army Wives.

"The Guy is Hiding Something": Top Hillary Aide Suggests Bernie Colluded With Russia Too

The length to which Hillary Clinton and her team will go to shift blame onto others for President Trump’s victory last November is stunning.

Adam Parkhomenko, a long time aide to Hillary Clinton, took to Twitter Friday evening to rant about how great his boss’s presidential campaign was in 2016, while taking shots at her primary opponent Bernie Sanders.

In the middle of Parkomenko’s thread, the Clinton aide insinuates something quite explosive - Bernie Sanders may have colluded with Russia in the Democratic primary.

“PS…you seem to ignore the Russia support online for Bernie during the primaries. The guy is hiding something. Not sure I want to know what,” the aide tweeted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A working definition of being a "personality-cult" Democrat in the 21st century: "pathologically incapable of letting go of the lies about why one's anointed candidate did not win the elections, coupled with a pathological inability to face the dark truths of why they did not win."

REPORTER BARRETT BROWN JAILED 5 YEARS FOR JOURNALISM JUST LAUNCHED NEW SYSTEM TO EXPOSE CORRUPTION

The Pursuance Project, billed as the “world’s first comprehensive framework for process democracy,” was conceived with mass online collaboration in mind. Brown, who served five years in federal prison for leaking information as part of the PM Project — which sought to make transparent the abuses of the surveillance state — believes the full promise of the Internet is yet to be realized. The Pursuance Project, which he calls a “civic collaboration network,” will leverage online tools and relationships to create “a vast and formidable ecosystem of opposition to institutionalized injustice.”

Barrett Brown learned many lessons from his years of harassment at the hands of the Department of Justice. One of these lessons, it seems, was most certainly not backing down from the fight. And he sees net-driven mass collaboration as the most important arsenal in an information war that is already well underway.

Another North Korean holiday? It’s probably time for another missile launch.

Saturday is the 69th anniversary of the founding of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, and neighboring countries are bracing for the rogue country to celebrate in a classic North Korean way: by conducting a test of its nuclear and missile program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like the Washington Compost struck out again. It's midnight in North Korea and nothing has been launched.

Newsweek Claims Russia Orchestrated Boston Marathon Bombing

Online publication Newsweek upped the ante in explosive rhetoric Sunday by suggesting the Tsarnaev brothers, responsible for the 2013 Boston Marathon terror attack, were operating on behalf of Moscow – even though Russian security agencies tipped off the FBI and CIA that Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his mother presented imminent security risks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Newsweek's argument falls flat when you recall that it was not the Tsarnaevs who planted the bombs.


But then, that's why Newsweek's paper edition had to shut down; nobody bothers to read them any more.

“One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu – the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can't exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can't be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality – Ubuntu – you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.” ~ Desmond Tutu, 2008

Race/class-baiting attacks against vaccine doubters

“The Vaccine Culture War is heating up. Ground zero is America, Europe and other economically developed countries, where the pharmaceutical industrial complex is raising an iron fist to protect multi-billion dollar profits by disempowering the people.”

“In America, professors and doctors in academia and government are profiling parents by class and race to shame and discredit those challenging vaccine orthodoxy. Elite members of the highest paid professions in our society are using academic journals and mainstream media to openly preach fear, hate, prejudice and discrimination against people who disagree with them about vaccination.”
