Do you care about two white people in post colonial South Africa? Me either

Could this ugly crime matter less? Except that the media is exploiting the story to deny domestic violence (The Blade Runner couldn't have meant to kill his model girlfriend, she was so beautiful). And except now that it looks like the Oscar Pistorius case is taking a JonBenet Ramsey turn. A celebrity shoots his girlfriend through a locked bathroom door, and suddenly detectives are reported to be botching the case, misidentifying evidence and contaminating the crime scene. This is big league defense where the moneyed class walks even as one of their own dies, justice usually failing a woman. Why should a crime of passion ruin a second affluent life?

US senator says bomb makers and their associates should be killed forthwith

Said Senator Dianne Feinstein to Fox News about an al-Qaeda suspect in Yemen: "I am hopeful that we will be able to, candidly, kill this bomb maker and kill some of these other associates. This, about a certain Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri about whom we have only intelligence hearsay to go on, based on an undetectable bomb, on which they say they detect his forensic signature, and about his friends, members they say of AL-QAEDA OF THE SAUDI PENINSULA or some such. What this means, for employees of GENERAL DYNAMICS or RAYTHEON OF SOUTHERN COLORADO for example, is that you don't even have to possess a factory security ID to be suspected by Yemen, or our other Muslim adversaries, of making bombs that terrorize their innocents. Allah forbid they should commandeer armed drones, in preemptive self defense, to kill you and your now pants-pissing friends, candidly.   And let's be realistic, the BOMB MAKERS OF AMERICA is an awfully big fraternity at this point.

Pentagon is trying to stage manage storyline about events in Afghanistan

"It is not possible for only one American soldier to come out of his base, kill a number of people far away, burn the bodies, go to another house and kill civilians there, then walk at least 2 kilometers and enter another house, kill civilians and burn them," said Abdul Rahim Ayubi, a lawmaker from Kandahar province who visited the area on Monday.

Operation: Love Reunited

Awww, how sweet... A volunteer group of professional photographers taking pictures of the "warriors" and their families as they go off to fight "for our freedom". Anybody catch the tone yet? A sickly sweet family scene with a father in the Air Force being deployed, leaving behind his young son and his wife, 6 months preggers with his next son, whose birth he's going to miss because he's going to be Blowing Other Young Mothers and Children and Their Families Apart with high explosives. So he's playing toy soldiers with his son, that's right, go ahead and teach your kid to be more cannon fodder/Imperial Storm Trooper in the endless war started by Billionaires to stuff their bank accounts with more blood money, and they'll tell your kid that it's all about "freedom" and "protecting America" and other lies. "When I grow up I'm going to be a merciless butcher of Human Beings just like Daddy!" 29336

Johannes Mehserle, free, Eli Lilly employees, scot free, Pop Stars doctor, Jailed.

Only, the PIG Johannes Mehserle deliberately shot Oscar Grant, in the back, while Mr Grant was face down on the sidewalk, with the 200 pound PIG Johannes Mehserle kneeling on him. Mr Grant was also already handcuffed. The PIG Johannes Mehserle claimed he though he had his Taser instead of his double-action (rare) Sig-Sauer automatic pistol and was tasering Mr Grant. Why taser a handcuffed man in the first place? Because PIGS, like Johannes Mehserle and every other uniformed badge, are sadistic and sexually enjoy the pain of others, especially when the Others are helpless. Yeah, I do think that of cops. Cops beat it into me, while I was handcuffed and on occasion wile strapped into chairs, for talking bad about them and "hurting their feelings". Awwww... Poor widdle cwybaby PIGS. What will you do, beat it out of me? While I'm handcuffed of course because you would never engage in equal combat. There are fewer than a million website references to Johannes Mehserle. How many do you think would be about the Doctor? I'm deliberately not feeding the bear on this... 29129

Cain being charged on sex, but not the Murder and Robbery and Slavery

He's paid to support War, it's the base of Capital. Now they've got some sex accusations brought to bring him down. As heinous as rape is, or the statutory rape of an employee or job candidate as a condition of being hired... There's the literally countless murders of civilians including children done to support the lavish lifestyle of the Corporate Class. It would pale in comparison to even one such wanton murder. It's drinking from the same fount, though, War, Slavery, Prostitution, Rape... but so far there's a thunderous silence booming from the Right over any and all of those issues. To raise the issue that War is equivalent to any of the other crimes, or even a solid foundation to mask and enable them, has been political suicide since the time of the Athenians. The beating of War drums awakens and energizes people who only vote on emotion, and Capital is subsidized by War. It cannot survive without war, it's not a self-sustaining system as the "Invisible Hand Free Market" proponents claim. 29070

Meredith Kercher not white enough to extricate from Italian justice imbruglio

Or was it because she was British and not American? In WHERE-DA-WHITE-WOMEN-AT NEWS, American white fixation Amanda Knox and cohort have been set free in Italy, leaving authorities to wonder who else could have scrubbed the murder scene with bleach, contrived it to look like a break in, while the pair were home, among the many incriminating clues. Have you noticed that when affluent white people are accused, the investigation is always "botched," police are always biased, and victims turn out to be of ill repute? For accused black men like Troy Davis on the other hand, it's the chair. The arrest of Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak and his wife suggest you can also keep a physician on hand to divert jail time to the nearest hospital.

LongmontCitizens– Joe Hill Festival with John McCutcheon and Elena Klaver

Joe Hill was a folk singer, on par with Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie, and an IWW organizer. He was framed for murder, a murder proven to be committed by another man. And executed by Judicial Lynching firing squad in Salt Lake City in 1915. Many Right Wingers say we shouldn't focus on such things, if somebody is convicted, so they say, there's no longer any chance of his innocence. (m)Ann Coulter and local Wicked Bitch of the West Michelle Malkintent object to people bringing up all the times Justice was thwarted by a hangmans rope, an electric chair, firing squad, gas chamber or needle. They say they're tired of hearing about Joe Hill and about Saccho and Vanzetti. Therefore everybody else is tired of hearing about it. Screw them. Not literally of course. They want people to forget so they'll have an easier time in the next round of Court Sanctioned Murders. I think they just like the thought of other people dying. There's a song that goes with it, Pete and Woody and Joan Baez and just every folk singer in existence has recorded it, lyrics are: 26712

The Afghanda…. U.S. Paternalism with a touch of Manifest Destiny.

President Obama made much glowing talk about all the "help" that "we're giving" Afghanistan, building roads for the use of "our" military transports, schools where "we" get to teach their kids to be Corporate Slaves just like the kids in Amerika. A centralized Police State government which is under "our" control. The wonderful security enjoyed by prisoners everywhere. Rescuing the Afghans from having to make decisions based on their needs rather than "our" corporate needs. But, of course, "we" didn't bomb them into rubble and then bomb the rubble and invade and control and kill any who "we" can't control for the Glowing Purpose Mr Obama praised so highly, to help the Afghan people in any way. 24977

Torture and Murder of un-convicted prisoners isn’t off limits to them… so

So I guess Killing Civilians isn't either. Naturally it was the fault of the civilians themselves for living in the middle of a War Zone, obviously they asked God or Allah or the Great Gazzoo beforehand to be born into the poorest place on earth and the middle of a land coveted for millennia by so many Empires for its strategic location. I bet it will make the usual War-Mongers in town, the ones who say they gave me the right to say this so I'd"goddam better shut my pie hole about it" Really Happy to know that some of the "Terrorists" executed without trial or even charges in this airstrike were Kids. 24514

Yes it was the iconic reaction shot

The White House Situation Room group photo of everyone fixated on the live video feed of Operation Geronimo was "iconic" alright, in composition virtually Alfred Aisenstaedt's original. Your eye is drawn to center right where Hillary Clinton recoils not sure what to think, she's a foil to the uniform enthusiasm. Scanning the background as we read a page, Biden knows they're going to hell, Obama is the everyman caught mid-gasp, he reflects us. The rest are the upraised arm, cheering with ass-kicking glee. In Paris they were watching St. George slay the dragon, puppets no less --how far we've come-- though Punch & Judy would have been analogous enough: a Navy Seals home invasion, Fort Benning School of the Americas style; a night-visioned, take-no-prisoners death squad, riding in on not just the proverbial black helicopters, but apparently a black-budget three-rotor model never yet publicly unveiled, literally, bin Laden was shown it and they had to kill him. 24130

No America, justice has not been done

This didn't always need explaining-- lynching and body snatching are INJUSTICES. There used to be an understanding of what "taking the law into your own hands" meant. Killing someone outright doesn't bring them to justice, and I'm not alone to assert that killing someone -even after a trial- is premeditated murder. We're not hearing any such voices on the media unfortunately. Even in the days of mob lynching, the crowd once drained of its blood-lust would sober to the crime it committed, often masked. That said, the press has always responded with statements of pitiable glee. In Colorado, even the most gruesome lynchings, race-related and otherwise, prompted congratulatory editorials from the Colorado Springs Gazette, the Rocky Mountain News and the rest. However, political leaders were usually more careful not to be celebrating extra-judicial revenge killing. 24075

Denver Anti-Police Brutality March, May 6

The execution in a Jail Cell in Denver, unacceptable... except, of course, to the Police and Judiciary and Social "leaders" in Denver. And the Feds who would have the task of prosecuting Civil Rights violations like, say, tasering and beating a handcuffed victim to death. If the FBI and the "justice" Department gave any more of a shit about the lives of people they're paid to protect than the other Pigs do. The murdered man in question was a Homeless Street Preacher, had the same occupation as Jesus. Who was also homeless, by the way So why wouldn't the Churches be outraged by this? You know, like the Third Self-Righteous Church of Denver with the Right Reverend P. Ompousass preaching conformity and obedience to the Police State? The question answers itself... March against police terror! March for Marvin, Oleg, and all the victims! 23782

Sarah Palin and the Republican Lie of “sacrifice”

Since she makes so much political hay over having sacrificed "her own" son to the Military Establishment, maybe she should have a short tutorial on the word Sacrifice. First, stolen goods, stolen money and humans aren't viewed as Clean for the Temple. Just like Caiphas couldn't spend the thirty shekels, because it was the price of blood. Sarah Palin could not in any way OWN her son. He's another separate human being. Not a possession. He might consider himself a sacrifice (he'd be wrong) but it would be HIS blood offering, not hers. Also he doesn't seem to be dying for the atonement of anybody's sin, if he DOES get his fascist face blown through the back of his skull it'll be because he's in a foreign country enslaving the people, taking their land and oil in the name of the corporations for whom Momma Grizzly does her whorin'. and one of them would get in a good shot while defending his country against Young Sgt Palin. Not anything similar to a sacrifice. 23771

The Memorial Park Grenade and Drugs

The CS Fuzz Dept isn't squeaking very loudly about the grenade they found at Prospect Lake a couple of days ago. There's ways to make a booby trap from a hand grenade, take one and set it down, prop a rock onto it and set the rock on a small stick, so the rock will fall off if the stick is disturbed, lots of ways to make the stick fall out. Test the rig to make sure. assemble it and extract the safety pin then leave, and never go back. That doesn't seem to be the case with the Lake Grenade. But it's Apparently a U.S. Army hand grenade of which there are several types, standard enough in triggering style, weight and size of the device, many made by an Israeli based firm called LGB Ltd. The cops would have a database on who supplies them. NOW... Drugs. 22986

Bush on the lam from Switzerland!

Cancelled a planned appearance for fear of being arrested for Torture and other heinous crimes. Too bad the CSPD and prosecutor don't have the BALLS to file similar charges against the ber-VerBrecher and instead are giving him a Medal for being such an upstanding Christian Hero. Like Vlad Dracula.   I wonder if they're going to serve Peasant under glass or merely fried Baby Nuggets? He's said to be extremely partial to baby roasted in Napalm or White Phosphorus ...

Closer to home

While Egypt burns with similar actions, in Denver this past week... there have been demonstrations against the Denver cops. specifically one cop-administered "cell euthanasia" from a year and New Years syndrome got me! 6 months ago. From Infoshop: The actions come on the heels of an endless series of police misconduct incidents, including the killing of a prisoner named Marvin Booker by Denver County Sheriffs at the Van Cise-Simonet Detention Center in July 2010. A laundry list of beatings, rapes, child pornography and drug charges has marked police activity in the metro area. Lawsuit after lawsuit has been filed, with the city of Denver paying out millions of dollars over the last several years. 22632

The dude has cast iron balls… or a corporate sponsor, you decide

If it's the nutsack or the sponsor, it's a big one... Baby Doc Duvalier in Haiti called for national reconciliation, said he only came back to help Haiti How very noble, but a better help would be for him to send back the money he stole, YEARS AGO, taken the entire responsibility for Haiti's national debt instead of causing the debt with the aforementioned taking out all the money.... Failing that, he COULD have sent the money back immediately after the earthquake... and kept his sorry worthless ass in exile. Instead he parks himself in the middle of a disputed election, why? Is he really that much of a narcissist that he believes himself the Savior of Haiti? The current judiciary in Haiti, probably going to change after the election Especially if Baby-Doc gets back in power is charging him with theft and corruption. 22393

Baby Doc Duvalier back in Haiti…

No, really, the ex-dictator is back. Maybe he's hoping to steal some more, only this time there's no Haitian money to take. Perhaps from the international aid to Haiti? Negotiate a deal for a U.S. air base perhaps? Of course in the middle of a rigged election where, just like in Afghanistan and Iraq, there are U.S. soldiers at the polls with machine guns to make sure nobody votes for an unapproved candidate. keep order. And what of his private goon-squad "police" Les Tontons Macoutes? (French for eater of fools, a boogieman figure) 22184

Prepare 4 Teabags swimming in De Nile

After all their prepping the lunatic fringe to go forth and murder Democrats, one of them at the very least tried. It's an evolving story, initial reports were that Gabrielle Giffords, D-AZ, was having an "on your corner" town-hall type meeting at a Safeway in Tucson and was shot dead. Actually she's still in surgery. She was on Sharon Angle's "Second Amendment Solution" list and Sarah Palin's Target List. Beck, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity, Gunny Bob, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, Dobbs, Tancredo, the whole Racist Retarded Lot of them had been yucking it up, telling people that a better way for them to "Take back America" would be to simply shoot liberals. 21300

Death of a Chaplain.

First, it should be noted that Doctors, Psychiatrists and Chaplains are, like everybody else in the services, Combatants under the Geneva Conventions. Their orders are to keep the soldiers physically and mentally and "morally" able to follow their orders, which are to Kill Other Human Beings. That's the whole purpose of a Military Organization. Although sometimes, if the Other Human Beings grovel enough to them (like Karzhai and al Maliki do) they'll be allowed to live, just as slaves. So when a "Mountain Post" Chaplain, Baptist Minister, got blown away in VietRaqiStan early last month, and the local news kept up the steady patter about how he volunteered for "duty" after the 9/11 Bush-ordered Mass Murder, to spread the word of Jesus. Only, Jesus never told anybody to Kill anybody. So Chaplains have to make shit up in order to justify what they're ordered to do, keep the Soldiers and Airmen and Marines and Sailors from feelings of guilt and remorse over Killing Other Human Beings. 21252

2 AM, time to piss off the Navy.

So this is the USN "crackerjack" work uniform blouse, from behind. Notice the two stars on a broad field of blue. That's, according to my brother the Sailor, symbolic. The stars stand for the two times the USN fought the Royal Navy, and won. The extra large field is to make room for more stars as needed. A wonderful imperial gesture, yes? "We are mighty, you shall obey us!"   Then there's BP. Which was founded as an adjunct to the Royal Navy and had the Royal Navy and even the U.S. Navy fight to secure their supply sources, which, surprise surprise surprise, none of which are actually in England. The propaganda bit they put out when they helped launch World War One, "That small nations might have the same rights as the Great Powers..." purest bullshit. Then as now, it was all about the Rich getting richer and using the blood and labor of the poor to do it. The kicker of it came down this past spring... when British Petroleum, that ol' devilish offshoot of the British Royal Navy, Bitch-slapped the U.S. Navy in American territorial waters. Guess you kids in Uncle Sams Canoe Club should take those stars

FOX convicts murdered prisoner, posthumously.

The Military Police thug who killed him, isn't contesting the charge that he killed the Human Being, and is instead pleading insanity. "He was off his meds" well, that's wonderful, the MilPigs put psychotic cops in charge over helpless prisoners. FOX 21 is saying "the Ft Carson soldier ACCUSED OF killing an accusedTaliban Member in a jail cell in Afghanistan". Typical Right Wing Racist CRAP, the PIG already admitted murdering the victim but the PIG, unlike his vicim gets full "Due Process" from FOX. Nat that it's any different from their usual "fair and balanced" slanted so far to the Radical Right that it's completely unhinged lynch-law hate speech and of course they're trying to get such execution without trial or even charges to be the Law of the Land, but that's irrelevant, or so I've been told.

TSA and Pentagoons play same lame blame game

TSA of course saying that people being angry about their Neo-Gestapo (betcha thought I was gonna say "nazi" huh?) thug tactics would cause delays. And not their Thuggish heavy-handed State-Sponsored Terrorism. The people, you see, have no right to resent being treated as criminals with no evidence. Guilty until proven innocent. Then blame anybody who acts any way non-docile or non-subservient for the punishment THEY, the Gesta errrr... Noble Defenders of freedom CHOOSE to inflict on other people. There's a counter-terrorism standard employed and enjoyed by every dictatorship, including the U.S. Military "free" puppet governments, (not just the Nazis, although they're the ones most famous for it) where they would round up local civilians in areas where a "terrorist" attack had occurred and simply execute some of them, and made sure to tell the survivors to blame it on the actions of the Resistance Fighters. That's the TSA tactic. Also, the Pentagon/State Department Gesta tactic for dealing with Wikileaks. Kill the messenger. Never mind that it's not the REVELATION of their many murders and miscellaneous misdemeanors, mayhem and malicious malfeasance that's caused their shared TSA/DoD/DoS/DoJ problems. It's the actual commission of their multiple misdeeds that caused the problem. If they didn't want
