My Lai every day

From Wikipedia: The My Lai Massacre (Vietnamese: th?m sát M? Lai [t????m ????t m?? l??j]; English pronunciation: /?mi??la?/ ( listen), also /?mi??le?, ?ma??la?/,[1] Vietnamese: [m??l??j]) was the mass murder of 347–504 unarmed citizens in South Vietnam on March 16, 1968, conducted by "Charlie" company, 1st battalion, 20th infantry, 11th infantry brigade, of the Americal Division, United States Army. All of the victims were civilians and most were women, children (including babies), and elderly people. Many of the victims were raped, beaten, tortured, and some of the bodies were found mutilated.[2] The massacre took place in the hamlets of M? Lai and My Khe of S?n M? village during the Vietnam War.[3][4] While 26 US soldiers were initially charged with criminal offenses for their actions at M? Lai, only 2nd Lt. William Calley, a platoon leader in charlie company, was convicted of killing 22 villagers. Originally given a life sentence, he served three and a half years under house arrest. When the incident became public knowledge in 1969, it prompted widespread outrage around the world. The massacre also increased domestic opposition to the US involvement in the Vietnam War. Three US servicemen who made an effort to halt the massacre and protect the wounded were later denounced by US Congressmen. They received hate mail, death threats and found mutilated animals on their doorsteps.[5] It would take 30 years before they were honored for their efforts.[6] The massacre is also known as the 'S?n M? Massacre' (Vietnamese: th?m sát S?n M?) or sometimes as the 'Song M? Massacre.'[7] The US military codeword for the hamlet was Pinkville.[8]"   If you only type in My Lai into google search, you'll also get a bunch of right-wing horse-shit like "Lt Calley was framed" and the chorus that any VietNamese killed in the war were Unlawful Combatants. I used to hear that crap all the time because I lived very near Ft Bliss. I don't speak much Annamese, the official language of both VietNams, More people spoke French than Annamese anyway. The one word I recognized in that whole descriptor was "sát" which means "kill". VietNam is one of the Disunited Nations hacked together to please the European and American and Australian colonialists who claim hegemony over Asia. The non-Annamese tribal people are described by the French term "montagnard" which literally means hillbilly. Much like the terms "pagan" and "heathen" are a Greek and a Gaelic word meaning "somebody who lives so far out in the tall weeds that he's beyond the bounds of civilization" The old French word for that is "peasant" and most of the latin languages use the word "paisano", literally somebody who is property of the aristocracy and bought or inherited or conquered along with the land and animals, domesticated or wild. The Scots have an ongoing war between the gamekeepers and the poachers, poachers meaning anybody who isn't the landlord who kills a wild animal bird or fish. All the fish in the streams, etc... belong to the English appointed nobility. Every tree in the National Forest here belongs

Oslo bomber was less Christian Jihadist than Dexter, Arrested Development

Another excerpt from Breivik's dairy, covering the preliminary phases, backdated to 2002: Personal reflections and experiences during several preparation phases April/May 2002 I am the Norwegian delegate to the founding meeting in London, England and ordinated as the 8th Justiciar Knight for the PCCTS, Knights Templar Europe. I joined the session after visiting one of the initial facilitators, a Serbian Crusader Commander and war hero, in Monrovia, Liberia. Certain long term tasks are delegated and I am one of two who are asked to create a compendium based on the information I have acquired from the other founders during our sessions. Our primary objective is to develop PCCTS, Knights Templar into becoming the foremost conservative revolutionary movement in Western Europe the next few decades. This in relation to developing a new type of European nationalism referred to as Crusader Nationalism. This new political denomination of nationalism will become the foremost counterweight to National Socialism and other cultural conservative political denominations, on the cultural right wing. Everyone is using code names; mine is Sigurd (the Crusader) while my assigned mentor is referred to as Richard (the Lionhearted). I believe I'm the youngest one here. I am going to discontinue my involvement in the Norwegian Progress Party as I have lost faith in the democratic struggle to save Europe from Islamification. After 65 years of harsh political oppression, demonization and ridicule from the communist-globalist cultural establishment, directed at any and all who opposes multiculturalism, there are still no indications that this communist-globalist hegemony will ever allow PP to take control. My party is systematically vilified and sabotaged by a united media before every single election. And even if they ever did manage to form a majority government with Høyre (the Conservative Party) their principles and party program would not be conservative enough to halt the ongoing Islamic demographic warfare OR increase the ethnic Norwegian fertility rate from 1.4 to 2.1. The only thing PP has achieved so far is to give false hope to Norwegians. They say that democratic struggle is the only solution, when it is clearly already lost. How can we democratically compete with a regime that is mass-importing hundreds of thousands of new voters? The PP is pacifying Norwegians by giving them false hope and I refuse to continue to have any involvement in this. Armed struggle appears futile at this point but it is the only way forward. 2002-2006 I am required to build a capital base in order to fund the creation of the compendium. I don’t know if I will ever proceed with a martyrdom operation at this point as it simply seems too radical. My plan A is to attempt to acquire 3 million Euro, in which case I plan to establish a pan- European organizational platform that will attempt to grow organically as a support organization which will distribute a “legal version” of the compendium. If I fail to generate the specified amount I will move forward with the operation, in order to market the compendium that way. As of 2005 I

Are you there God? it’s me Anders. The impersonal diary of Oslo Bomber and Mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik.

So there's a Mexican vigilante drug ring declared itself a law-keeping fraternity of the Knights Templar, now the Oslo gunman/bomber claims accreditation. The "2083" manifesto which Anders Behring Breivik released through a carefully harvested email list includes a curious diary/progress log, including this passage after a technical setback on day 42: "I prayed for the first time in a very long time today. I explained to God that unless he wanted the Marxist-Islamic alliance and the certain Islamic takeover of Europe to completely annihilate European Christendom within the next hundred years he must ensure that the warriors fighting for the preservation of European Christendom prevail."   That's about as much as God, spirituality, or conscience make an appearance. Breivik's candid musings share the desensitized voice of his favorite TV show. And he may be the first real serial killer to use emoticons. I think that Breivik's affable, sometimes self-deprecating, mostly aggrandizing voice comes straight out of DEXTER, obviously not by chance his favorite show. Though the television character means to depict a loner, there's a discordant charm which Breivik, probably like a typical Dexter fan, doesn't have any idea is a horribly ironic incongruity. Most relevant perhaps is that Breivik is a veteran of the occupation of Iraq. You wonder if Norway will now think hard about its role in the continuing occupation. Maybe sending its mercenary-mentality personalities to sow their oats in a war zone contaminates more than their young men's consciences. Breivik's favorite computer game, a first person shooter, involves racially-variated combatants. What the media is calling Breivik's "manifesto" is mostly copy-and-pasted information he gathered from the net: the history of the Knights Templar and lots of how-to for aspiring allies. We've bypassed the explosives how-to to present the account of his day to day travails, including this gem, Day 70: it is hard work for one person and I am really beginning to understand why Mr. McVeigh limited his manufacturing to 600kg. He probably encountered much of the issues I did and he probably had to learn everything the hard way just as I have done. However psychologists will choose to describe him, Breivik isn't stupid, or religious. We've annotated this excerpt by highlighting some of the cultural supplements with which Breivik was augmenting his diet, with intentional consequences and perhaps not. April - 2011 On April 6th I leased a car (short term lease), from AVIS; a silver grey Fiat Doblo van with 735kg of carrying capacity. They would charge my credit card with 810 euro per month. I needed this car as I had an introduction meeting with a farm owner the next day. I removed all the AVIS insignias so the car would pass as my own. I had previously made initial contact with the owner of an appropriate farm through an online real estate forum for farms etc. At this point in time I had regularly searched for farms with 30-100 decare of farmland the past 6 months and had around 10 potential leads, all within 4.5 hours driving

Rule of law & American Exceptionalism

The extrem(ist)e lack of the first puts any claim of the latter as the very essence of arrogant falsehood. We're told that America, and ONLY America, actually deserves to run the entire world because we're better than them. What's that sound? Damn, I just heard every Right Wing Jingoist my-country-right-or-wrong, Love-it-or-leave-it, we're-fighting-for-your-freedom-of-speech-so-you-better-shut-your-cake-hole-or-we'll-shut-it-for-you "patriotic" TeaTard Racist closing his mind. They just snapped their minds shut simultaneously. with a deafening roar. Consider the case of one Luis Posada Carriles For those of our readers unfamiliar with the Castellano (Spanish) naming scheme, Carriles was his mother's maiden name. His surname is Posada. A terrorist paid by the U.S. Regime over decades to murder, to overthrow Democracy wherever it reared its lovely head. His CIA "handler" was one Donald Gregg, an American Coward who paid public money, without public oversight and, like fellow Terrorist George Bush Gregg was recently honored in Colorado Springs. Seems the local "conservatives" can't get enough of Babykilling Freaks. (They're hosting Sarah Palin later this month) So, Colorado Springs and El Paso County show a lot of solidarity with Terrorists like Gregg, and his "asset" Posada. El Paso County Texas too, where the Republican prosecutor, in a show trial, charged this mass murdering TERRORIST with "lying to immigration officials" a charge compared to charging Hitler with Disorderly Conduct and then dropping the charges. I spent more time in the El Paso County Jail for talking back to the PIGS. Guess if I actually were a murderer or something they would have simply welcomed me to their club. Pigs are like that. Fellow CIA "assets" handled by Gregg and his friends Rumsfeld, George HW Bush, (before and AFTER he became President in charge of Vice and subsequently Commander in Thief) Ollie North, Richard Secord, a rogues gallery indeed... But the "assets" list included, until they became too much of an embarrassment, Saddam Hussein, The Medellin Cartel, and Panama Puppet Manuel Noriega. Their current assets include Nouri al Maliki, Satrap of Baghdad, Mauricio Funes, of the Satrapy El Salvador, Felipe Calderon, Puppet Dictator of Mexico, Eden Pastora, Babykilling Contra leader, Ricardo Martinelli Panamian Sock-puppet, and the list grows longer. Human rights slaughtered right along with the humans who claimed them. Posada was just one of many, and was charged, and acquitted, in the same El Paso County Texas Kangaroo Court system which acquits cops of murder routinely, and enables the same PIGS to beat, imprison on false charges (automatic conviction in their courts on those charges) and KILL people for the crimes of talking back or wearing a brown skin. It's true what they say, Thieves of a Feather, Cowards Run in Packs, and the Counties of El Paso Texas and El Paso Colorado glorify, fund, and enable Terrorist BITCHES like Posada and Gregg and Bush and Palin. Have a nice babykilling.

The Jews killed Harry Potter, if we’re to believe the latest Israeli travel PR

I'm mocking the mother of all anti-Semitisms, the original Christian dead horse, that Jews killed Jesus. So let's be very clear, it was the Zionists who killed Harry Potter. And it wasn't me how brought it up. Israeli tourism promoters have found another attraction to lure Western visitors, this time RK Rowling fans. Seriously, they've found a grave marked Harry Potter, albeit a namesake British soldier of the same age, who was killed in Hebron in 1939. APPARENTLY Potter fans are flocking to the military cemetery in Ramla regardless, if perhaps because the young soldier's unsung death is tragedy enough. Press TV notes that another tombstone, for one William Shakespeare, is drawing less notice. Unmentioned is how Private Potter died. Charged with keeping the peace under the Palestinian Mandate, the British were fighting against the Irgun, the Zionist terrorist organization trying to drive Arabs from the land that was being claimed for Israel.

Mississippi set to honor Klan Founding Father Bedford-Forrest

With "heritage" license plates. "It's not Hate, it's Heritage... a heritage of hating people so badly that we would deny them liberty from before they're born and tear our nation apart, slaughter all together a half million Americans, in order to keep them as Slaves." This is the guy whose orders, carried out, were to massacre Union P.O.W.s because they were black. After the surrender of Ft Pillow, April 12th 1864. A real American TERRORIST, infamous for his saying of "Save your Confederate Money, the South will rise again!" and urged that among others, General Robert E Lee should be hanged for surrendering, and every Confederate soldier refuse to honor the surrender, and keep the war going forever. So far his Terrorist Movement has kept it going for a hundred and fifty years and with the addition of Lincoln's Party and the TeaBag RACISTS to their list of allies. I saw one bumper sticker here in Colorado Springs last year, had the Confederate Battle Flag and the POW flag and the slogan, "This flag would never have left you behind". Unless, of course, you happened to not be White in which case the proponents of the Hate-filled Cause represented by the flag would have simply killed you. The car had Texas tags.

Bolton (reportedly) renews call to Bomb Iran.

As ChickenHawk Supreme, he's done so many times in the past... Called for OTHER people to do the deed. My suggestion for all these "kill in the name of God" Religious Terrorists like Bolton, Bush, Prince, Cheney, Palin etc... strap some dynamite vests on and parachute out over Teheran and do it your Own God-Damn Stupid Self. Pay for it with "your" own money too, you stole that to begin with, took it literally off the dead bodies of your victims, both American and "foreign", as though God really gives two shits about the nationality of either murderers or murder victims. NeoCons are such pukes.

Russian Airport reaction: From the reactionaries.

Which in their customary thought processes, comes out as confusion. For a long while they've been vacillating, our Dearest Redneck Leaders that is. They praise the Putin-Medvedev-KGB response to the theatre hostage situation, where they killed civilians to get at the terrorists, then a school with the same methods, same results... In response to REAL Caucasians who formerly had, until being rolled over by the Russians under the Tsars and kept a part of Russia under the Soviets and still are, much like the much booed Soviet takeover in Afghanistan which mirrors the Current NATO takeover, Where "our" current enemies were THEIR enemies... they had been sovereign nations. Then the Right Wing Reactionaries condemn the Russian government for being simultaneously too lenient and too hard-line. WTF? How Hard-Core Repressive Does One Have To Be To Satisfy These Jackasses? This attack occurred in the waiting area where people were queued up waiting to be poked, prodded, stripped, x-rayed and fondled by the Russian equivalent of TSA. So what next, what levels of "security" will suffice? a buffer zone around the buffer zone? Having to hire extra uniformed thugs to staff the new protocol and the buffer zones that will expand ever outward around them? A perpetually replicating concentric circle, what happens when the borders of the safety zone collide with the borders of other safety zones, do the uniformed thugs declare inter-agency war on each other? All that extra staffing, they'll need to hire extra Security Screen personnel to do background checks on the New Hires. And of course constantly monitor them. Spies to keep track of the other spies. If I were to write a computer program that does the same thing it would take all the space in each infected computer in a matter of hours. Trillions of bytes of replicated, duplicated effort. And this in the post-Capitalist economy wherein Ponzi Capitalism crashed and burned. Again. Perhaps in its final death throes. You on the Capitalist side of the argument, you can't afford the security measures that would make your stolen gold and stolen oil safe. You don't have enough money and guess what? Your usual method of securing extra capital, Conquest? ain't going to work either because you've already stolen all the money in the world. There's nothing left for you to steal. Now for the REALLY sad part. Remember World War One? Well, unless you're about a hundred and twenty years old you probably don't. But World War One was BEFORE there were any socialist economies active. All the belligerent parties were Capitalists who banked in the same system. And they ran into essentially the same problem, all the resources were locked into either your own account, or those of competing corporations nations. No new capital to sustain the unsustainable. Money borrowed from people who had in turn borrowed. No principal left, just an upward spiral of increasing interest. What are Bloated Capitalist Big-pigs to do in such a scenario? Exactly what they did in 1914, mobilize their hordes of Peasants to march off and slaughter

Flag pin betrayal

Of course you know I would just never unleash a vicious attack like mocking a fake-patriot or faux-elitist move like wrapping ones bullshit in either the flag or the cross. Just have to point out that the flag lapel pin, the one Republicans bitched and whined so much about Democrats not wearing, the one Lisa Czeladtko is wearing in the picture chosen by Gag-Zette writer Daniel Chacon when "calling out" Ed over his Free Speech opposing a political candidate. Not that The Gag-zette (Colorado Springs Gazette, "Freedom" Communications") has ever so much as given a mild tsk-tsk'ing to violent attacks on Free Speech in Colorado Springs, usually instigated by City Council or persons very close to them.St Paddies Day 2007 leaps to my mind. Or to Fake Patriotism. You'll notice, if you're observant, that the "flag" in question has 7 stripes and 18 stars. It's a sign of the depths of rabble rousing the "elitists" will plumb when wanting to silence any opposition to their agenda as "unpatriotic" and Anti-Christ. "Calling out" by the way, is in Colorado and other Western states, a challenge to physical violence. Usually issued by a heavily armed Coward who is so sure of victory that he assumes he can force the other person to apologize for saying anything. Then go get drunk with his redneck comrades. Might makes right, Oderint dum Metuant "let them hate us as long as they fear us". Maybe Chacon should more carefully consider HIS choice of words. That way he wouldn't leave himself open to Attacks errr... criticism that lumps him in with the likes of Caligula, King Charles II of England and George W. Bush. So the Rich Pigs are afraid their piglets will see what poverty looks like, instead of, as Ms Lisa Siddhattha suggests, hiding the poverty from the delicate eyes of the Piglets? Lest they see the human price of their own opulent lifestyle. Actually, her ties to Developers, like the Flag Pin, betray her true agenda. According to the Developer Religion, evidenced by the Real Estate Developer who "founded" Colorado Springs, the idolatrous statue of whom sits in the meddle of the intersection at the Northwest corner of Acacia Park, According to their money worship Cult of Mammon, the sight of poverty in CS would drive down real estate prices. Therefore they wouldn't have enough blood-money profits from selling their stolen-at-gunpoint land. One of their High Priestesses, Janis Heuberger, wrote in her blog that Bicycles should be banned from acacia Park, because "only the Homeless" ride bicycles. There were further suggestions by one of her sycophantic supporters that people who LOOK homeless should be banned from city parks. Imagine that, the "non-elitists" as they style themselves, seeking to impose a conformist dress code on the citizens of Colorado Springs. To protect their profit margin. And even ban an economical, non-wasteful and healthy form of transportation. Unless you drive a gas-guzzler you're not welcome in Colorado Springs. Nothing elitist about that, No Sir! And failing to admit that it was Real Estate Developers who

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. Preachers, religious leaders, and other propagandists for the Enemy-du-Jour are frequently targeted under legal codes naming them as accomplices. Under the Bush Doctrine, which Obama never repealed, anybody who "gives aid and comfort" even by failing to enthusiastically support Killing Other Human Beings could be determined by a Homeland Security or Military or even Mercenary Contractor Assassination Squad to be an Enemy Combatant. Without, of course, trial, charges, any kind of Rule of Law stuff. These are the same kinds of War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity for which first Nazis convicted at Nurnberg and many Iraqi officials were executed. But because the U.S. Chaplains are Americans and for the most part Christian (there are also Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Native American Church, Wiccan etc Chaplains, so it's almost an equal opportunity to sell the souls of your congregation deal), well, you do the math. But, really, what exactly differentiates a Christian Chaplain from any other propagandist? In Christian, Judaic and Muslim laws one of God's Top Ten List is "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain". I don't know the details on Sikh or Hindu or Buddhist or whoever else, completely out of range of my experience. I'm pretty sure they've got laws against blasphemy and killing as well. Fact is, the Chaplain in question wasn't, under the definitions he was hired and commanded to propagate and reinforce, "murdered". But that's a technicality. He might have embraced it, in fact there's no way to be a Military (or Paramilitary, like the Police) Chaplain and say anything at all contrary to what you're ordered to say. Not ordered by God to say it, but by the Empire. That brings up another issue. The Chaplains are also commanded (and could conceivably get the death penalty under a charge of Mutiny) to tell their Congregants that GOD, Himself, tells them they must obey every order of the Emperor. The good Chaplain might have accepted these precepts, and sold them wholesale to his flock, (Pastor

In Tennessee, ACLU = Terrorists

The Memphis Homeland Security fusion center has a map listing the Tennessee ACLU as a "Terrorist Event." Compound that with what a ranking senator (R-AL) has called the "ACLU DNA." It goes beyond semantics when the label of terrorist means by executive order suspects can be detained without charges, indefinitely and without an enforceable standard of human rights. Think twice about those giving credence to Vice President Biden's categorization of Wikileaks as more terrorism than journalism. On the lighter dark side, the CIA has set up a Wikileaks Task Force (WTF), prompting comedian Andy Borowitz to suggest the more apt Stop Terrorists From Uniting (STFU).

Jeep declares war on intellect.

They're sponsoring Call of Duty:whateverthehellnumber : BlackOps. In the Jeep commercial they show screenshots of a Black Jeep SUV in some tropical location that exists only in the imaginations of the designers of the game, who never got closer to actual war than speeding up as they passed the Army Recruiter's office on their way to a College Republicans meeting. Call of "Duty"? BlackOps is not very discrete code for Murder, Kidnap and Torture, in other words, REAL terrorism funded and backed by a massive military industrial complex. Of which the manufacturers of Jeep are a proud member-group. BlackOps is not anybody's "Duty" it's a pleasure romp for people who enjoy killing and enjoy torture and enjoy the feeling of helpless victims fearing them. The sick bastards who play the game on their computers in their Moms' basements and fantasize killing are only slightly less sick than the ones who go out and commit the actual Murders, kidnaps and tortures. Or the political bastards who order the Terroristic BlackOps strikes. Games like that destroy your own capacity to think rationally, it's a downward spiral into being the formerly human equivalent of a mechanical drone. THEY push your launch buttons and aim you toward their target, as intelligent and free and human as a simple bullet.

Ghailani innocence proves Guantanamo can’t trust US civilian courts to uphold terrorism threat charade

Guantanamo detainee Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani was acquitted of all significant terrorism charges. The victory/defeat is being hailed as a setback to efforts to close the illegal US detention facility. Come again? Apparently President Obama can end torture renditions to Guantanamo if he can be assured that kangaroo courts elsewhere can keep the alleged evildoers from roaming free. OR Ghailani's acquittal could cement the precedence set by the hundreds of innocents already released from US extrajudicial detention, that not even a court of law will assert these men are guilty. America's Islamic-blood-thirsty press, led by NYT, WP & LAT, are whining that Ghailani's confession was determined inadmissible because it was obtained under torture, or as they put it, "torture."

Could it be, Olbermann fired by FOX?

Since the following chain of logic is true, very possible and knowing the "ethical" standards of the American CorporaFascist Empire therefore very probable. Quote:November 05, 2010 12:14 PM What Role Did Comcast Play in Keith Olbermann's Suspension?--UPDATED By karoli There is a double standard at work with regard to Keith Olbermann's suspension, not only between other personalities appearing on MSNBC as commentators, but also at the very top level of the food chain. Comcast now owns MSNBC after their acquisition was completed earlier this year, despite protestations from many of us. A look at campaign finance disclosures for several organizations shows that Phil Anschutz, chairman of Comcast major shareholder and content partner with Comcast, donated large sums of money to the First Amendment Alliance, (How very Orwellian, have we wound back the clock to "1984"? Does the Legal Staff for the "First Amendment Alliance work only for the Rich? What a foolish question, of course they won't defend anybody else's freedom of speech -Jonah) one of the largest outside groups targeting Democrats in the 2010 midterm elections. The Anschutz Corporation, wholly owned by Phil Anschutz, gave $50,000 on 9/24/2010 to the First Amendment Alliance. The two candidates targeted by the First Amendment Alliance? Jack Conway and Michael Bennet. Keith Olbermann gave to Jack Conway's campaign along with Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords. In addition, the Anschutz family donated $169,900 to Republican candidates and committees during the 2010 election cycle, according to Open Secrets. Additionally, Comcast Corporation has contributed $125,000 to the Republican Governors' Association in the 2010 cycle (as of 9/30/2010). There's been a lot of chatter about MSNBC policy, and whether Olbermann should have gotten advance approval for his donations to Jack Conway, Raul Grijalva(Targeted, literally, by the Neo-Nazi group "the Minutemen" for taking a stand against their Racist anti-Immigrant policies, they fired shots at his office and have repeatedly threatened him, along with Murdering the American Child Briseña Flores in her home because her surname is Spanish) and Gabrielle Giffords on October 28th. The policy I've seen reads like this: NBC and MSNBC TV require permission of the president of NBC News. (MSNBC.com is a joint venture of NBC Universal and Microsoft.) "Anyone working for NBC News who takes part in civic or other outside activities may find that these activities jeopardize his or her standing as an impartial journalist As opposed to an "entertainer" edit by Jonah because they may create the appearance of a conflict of interest. But not Corporate donations nor the contributions from the Elitist Scum who effectively ARE the corporation- Jonah Such activities may include participation in or contributions to political campaigns or groups that espouse controversial positions. (even though Mr Olbermann made huge sums of Profits for MSNBC by celebrating or opposing very controversial positions) You should (but not "Must" -Jonah) report any such potential conflicts in advance to, and obtain prior approval of, the President of NBC News or his designee." (who insist they have no such moral obligations, far less legal -Jonah) That language clearly says "should" and not "must". Further, anyone

How come Pottery Barn rules don’t apply to Haiti?

When Tony posted nearly three years ago (!) about how shocking conditions in Haiti had become, it was a magnet for people saying the starving kids pictures (from Medicins sans frontiers, internationally respected medical aid agency, just not so much here in America) were recycled pictures from Ethiopia 3, 2 and one decade ago. Then when that was refuted, and before they raised that Stupid Response again, the people of Haiti were blamed for their own misfortunes. As though their LEADERS had actually been empowered by popular vote instead of installed, against the expressed will of the People, by and for the profit of American Corporate Hegemony. Alternating with French Hegemony until the AmeriCorp bought out the French. We broke it, we supposedly bought it, right? That's the one of the irRationale for staying in Iraq and Afghanistan. (rationale is both plural and single, I checked, you didn't, kiss off) Of course, it's not the American Corporations who are Paying the bills "we" ran up by breaking all the pottery, although they seem to be getting quite a lot of public funding to manipulate the Public Army and the Public intelligence community and the public "rebuilding" campaign, which mostly consists of taking very expensive videos and photographs of Other People moving the shards around. Much the same way they're paid to watch and take pictures while other people bury the Dead "shards" in Haiti. Through public funding for their private "efforts". Some have seen fit to criticize my frequent use of Capitalization and italics and bold type and ComBinatiOns Of tHem but some people need a little help finding juicy nuggets amidst the kibble. Both are Nourishing Mind Food but the juicy bits are more fun. Sometimes. Some of the people have difficulty seeing, which is a condition with which I can easily relate. Others are just kind of inured to reading and hearing Bullshit from the likes of Glenn Beck and need a little help finding emphasis in NORMAL thoughts. It's not that Glenn Beck is mentally defective, it's what he's paid to say, in the Corporate anticipation of the Audience being mentally defective. In a way, though, the situation in Ethiopia and Haiti is the same case, revisited. "Conservative" (their own code word for Racist Right Wing Extremists) Pundits insist that black people are incapable of governing themselves so it's up to the Great White Father in Washington to guide and assist and let's face it, outright Rule Over the poor little darkie savages. But Ethiopia has for several occasions been the richest nation on earth and in cumulative time they managed to do it for longer than the Americas have actually experienced European Rule. Intermittently because the times Ethiopia has been devastatingly poor have been periods of colonial rule. Like the Romans exacting tribute from them, and in the past couple of centuries European and European-American Corporate Rule turning Their nation into Our plantation. Same with Haiti. When the U.S. went to war with Hawaii and deposed their "tyrannical"

Apologizing for not pandering to ignorance.

The Portland ME newspooper apologized to 9/11 families for publishing a story about Eid, the end of the holy month Ramadan. Which occurred this year on September 10th. The next time it will occur on September 10th is 28 years from now. Because, you see, there's a difference between Gregorian (Church) calendars, Julian (Roman) calendars and Lunar Calendars, such as the ones used by Judaism and Islam. As in Jewish calendars, Muslim ceremonies occur on a Lunar Event, like the first full moon or first new moon (dark of the moon) after an equinox or solstice. What does that mean for us? How about April 19th. Sometimes it falls on Easter, other times Seder, according to the cycles of Earth orbits Sun /slash/ Moon orbits earth. Insert Leap year because that pesky ol' Earth orbit doesn't happen in exactly 365 days. So, what happens when Easter or Good Friday occurs on April 19th, the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing? The one that was done by "Christian" warriors. Will it be trumpeted or, worse yet, apologized by the press as "Christian Triumphalism" and marked by Bible Burnings (more like, Cross Burnings), or "Gee, we're really sorry to offend the OKC bombing victims by publishing news reports of celebrations of a Christian or Judaic holiday"? And it begs the question, directed toward the Portland Herald Press, "Is you completely lost yo' MIND?" I swear somebody might have actually done it, put LSD in the American Water Supply. More likely all the toxic waste from the Money-Grubbing the First Church of Capitalism promotes. And they still have to apologize for Newt Gingrich and a slew of TV and Radio Preachers, Hell-e-vangelists and Hate Speech Morons like Beck, Limbaugh and Palin, saying that the World Trade Center was a Holy Temple for Christians

Self-contradictory positions taken by TeaBag and Radical Republicans

The list is massive, their own anti-American Terrorist threats in relation to voting rights, civil rights, racism, hate-speech against Muslims, hate-speech inspired attacks against Muslims and other religious, racial, social, or cultural groups and individuals... Oh, and the constant use of Massive Conspiracy theories of their own to denounce "conspiracy theories" like the questions raised over RepubliKlan and TeaBags rigging either the initial attacks on 9/11 directly, rigging the public response to those attacks for the profit of their Warmongering Corporate Leaders, and D) All of the Above. Let's jump right in with Voting Rights, in Houston, one of the major cities in the Exxon Protectorate Territory of Texas. According to TeaBag-RepubliKlan legend, so "Red" that only Massive Commie Infiltration could have thwarted their machinations. A group called True the Vote is insisting that the 70 million to 48 million vote spanking they took in the last election wasn't an adverse reaction to Race Baiting on the part of their Terrorist Candidates McCain, Palin and others further down the ticket all the way to elections for Dogcatcher. OK so the dogcatcher election is an old hyperbole, maybe City Council would be more appropriate. AND they're calling for Armed Poll Watchers... Millions of Armed Poll Watchers. Which was IS Klan terrorism technique used to skew elections. Particularly elections for such positions as County Clerk and Recorder, or similarly positioned Election Oversight officials in different jurisdictions. Like the ones the Right Wing Hate Freaks controlled in so much of the nation 2 years ago that they were confident of cruising to victory with plenty to spare. But with a Republican Machine that rivals the Soviet system in reach and the Tammany Hall Machine in tactics, in place nationwide, there's a 22 MILLION vote difference + another 5 million or so they thought would give them an easy victory. So they come up with a Conspiracy Theory that's an order of magnitude more convoluted than the JFK Assassination theories and 9/11 theories and the whole "I saw Elvis in a UFO" range of theories combined. While alternately condemning as treason or mocking as trivial and irrelevant any questions of just how much political and financial advantage their Parent Corporations gained by the 9/11 attacks. Which is it, TeaBags, (local shout out to Michelle Malkin, Dan Maes, Tancredo, Gunny Bob) Treason, or insignificant rants of lunatics? Cause, cousins, y'all seem to have a Nationwide Lock on Loonie. Seriously. Then they spin that into their Mosque Mania and terroristic Hate Speech and Hate Actions against Muslims and anybody else they think of as being Not White or Christian Enough To Be Considered Real Americans, according to their Hate Speech Real Loonie Leader Sarah Palin. Their level of Violent Hatred has already caused American Deaths directly within the confines of the United States, attacks on Religious and Cultural Institutions such as the Murfreesboro Islamic Cultural Center torched in Tennessee last week, The Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church attacked at the urging of TeaBag Leaders at FOX Networks and Clear Channel, with two dead, the

James J. Lee, caricature eco-vigilante, assails Discovery Channel offices, puts his money and life where his Malthus

The plus side of eco-vigilante James Lee's Falling Down routine at the Discovery Channel headquarters is that viewers might be prompted to wonder what's there to protest. Will the media paint the 43-year-old Lee as a kook, without addressing to what in particular the would- be superhero took offense? Maybe that the cable propagandists purport to inform as they dumb their national audiences to adolescence? No, it turns out Lee's message is even less palatable, but made to order. Why did James Lee want to task the Discovery Channel to "save the planet" instead of the major networks? Why Discovery, other than the peculiarity that some of their programs glorify large families, obviously a root cause of overpopulation and thus mankind's disastrous impact on nature. So far the reporting has avoided that line of question because it turns out James Lee's crusade centers on a Malthusian epistemology not off limits to the MSM, in fact it's right up Bilderberg Alley. Cries Lee:"All human procreation and farming must cease!" as he cites My Ishmael author Daniel Quinn for ideas of how to cut back food production to effect such a strategy. Quinn's 1992 "novel" received a one-of-a-kind 1/2 million dollar grant from Ted Turner, for its fearless anti-human prognosis. Which dovetails with the interests of another oligarch eugenicist of the Club of Rome ilk, Bill Gates, proponent of sterilization. Cutting back on agriculture is no new idea. Genghis Khan had no use for agriculture. It supported city populations which threatened the open range. Modern times have restored the ultra rich who now seek to reestablish hunting grounds void of their subjects. No time like the present to prep the common man on the necessity of sacrificing oneself so that the sustainable few can survive. What a golden opportunity to have a kook broach the subject, float the balloon so to speak, to set environmental do-gooders on the thought-path of rationalizing having to do themselves in. The failed hostage-taker left a web page where he explained My Demands. My guess is that James Lee's exclamation-point-ridden protestations remain unadulterated, a match for his ill-conceived and unpromising armed assault. Instead of elevating the debate, Lee has given America's security agencies further excuse to demonize environmental activists as "terrorists" under the theme of The Green Scare. The web page at savetheplanetprotest.com is reprinted below: "the demands and sayings of Lee." The Discovery Channel MUST broadcast to the world their commitment to save the planet and to do the following IMMEDIATELY: 1. The Discovery Channel and it's affiliate channels MUST have daily television programs at prime time slots based on Daniel Quinn's "My Ishmael" pages 207-212 where solutions to save the planet would be done in the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done, by people building on each other's inventive ideas. Focus must be given on how people can live WITHOUT giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution. A game show format contest would be in order. Perhaps also forums of

Generals say “we’ll only resume combat operations in Iraq if..

..the Iraqi people reject our Puppet Dictatorship. Meanwhile we'll keep our bases there to intimidate them into not developing a rebellious attitude, like thinking they're good enough to rule themselves without our intereference. And of course make sure the Iraqi government lives up to the agreement we forced them to sign to give all their oil to Our Great And Noble Oil Corporation Masters. Alle Sieg Heil am das Oil Corporations! HEIL! HEIL! HEIL!" So, if the Iraqi people use that Freedom To Obey and vote for people the Oil Company Pentagon Puppets have forbidden them to elect, the Army is going to go back in and "liberate" them again. And the Corporate Death Squads like Blackwater will continue to patrol without any possibility of ever being prosecuted in U.S. Courts for the murders, tortures and other crimes they commit. And them there Sand N------s better not try to prosecute any Blackwater "employees" either, because that "freedom" America The Corporate Puppet Army gave them doesn't extend to actual, you know, Freedom. Alle Sieg Heil am Prince Erik von Blackwater!

Interesting wording: Taliban blamed for Afghan civilian deaths

First the generic word Taliban. Which translates, if I've got the wording right, according to the State Department, "soldier". More or less. Then "blamed for". Is that a tacit admission that they're catching the rap but not in fair measure? Then there's the notion that the "Taliban" in general and al Qa'eda in particular have been driven far from civilian population centers. So that's two conflicting if not Mutually Exclusive stories being told by the same party, the Koalition of the Killing. At its most blunt, its an admission that they're losing, in the first part, and that they were covering it up with a blanket of lies about having the Taliban driven far away from the civilians. Then there are the Wikileaks files. Which tell a third tale, by the Same Party, Koalition of the Killing, in what they thought were Secret communications. By the way, Free the Hero Bradley Manning!! Aside from that, there's an old Baptist adage provided by some Old Baptists who i happen to know. If you don't want people to find out what you're doing, don't tell anybody. There's a really sad story you hear a lot from people convicted of felonies. "My accomplice snitched me off to get a good deal from the DA." The more serious the crime, like say, War Crimes, and the more often it's committed, and the more accomplices you have... then the more people will want to find out who is responsible for those crimes, and will be snooping around. Usually armed with subpoenas and warrants but ALWAYS armed with well, Arms. Cases that involve human deaths and especially the deaths of Children tend to draw a LOT more attention. Now, the way the Army and Co. set up their communications and storage of those communications is critical to their relative success at doing their crimes. The bigger the Army, the more records, the more copies of Accomplices ratting each other out, only, in a system where they're ratting each other out to each other and the evidence stored by their own Criminal Organization to help figure out what happened when their Criminal Organization loses its collective rosie-red Arse. Such as what's happening now in Greater VietRaqiStan. I can't help but believe that quite a few people in the Pentagoons actually DID know right from wrong, they KNEW that the tactic of Might Makes Right ALWAYS has backfired, they KNEW they were telling lies... because other than them having this certain knowledge of what they were doing, and why it is WRONG, you would have to have a couple of million complete Airheads running the Weapons storage and utilizations system known as the Military, and... the largest one on the face of the Earth. Dumb, or lying. Not much of a choice, is it?

Freedom & duress NOT the same thing

A gentleman wrote earlier that Ireland signed a paper partitioning the Nation, and likewise, Scotland and Ireland had signed papers joining their people to the United Kingdom. And that therefore Scots and Irish Separatists are breaking a treaty and how very dare they do so, it's dishonorable etc.   He was too busy reviling me personally to revile them but that is the gist of his words. What wasn't mentioned was that in either treaty the People of Ireland and the People of Scotland weren't consulted. The "Lords" whose ancestors were in turn appointed and ennobled by the British Crown during prior invasions and occupations, signed the papers, and that at the point of gun and sword. Not by the people nor by their elected officials. This was in comparison, by the way, to the Conquest and Occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan. It's like an armed robbery on a massive scale. I mean, IF I were ever to want to control people, I'd not last very long at the enterprise mostly because anybody I could get to assist me in doing so would be under coercion. I could, theoretically, walk into a 7-Eleven or a Liquor store with an Uzi, and demand that the proprietor surrender to my will, do as I say, and that he promise to cooperate with my Armed Might, my one-man "Army of One" submachine gun, and provide me with as much of the goods and money in his store as I could carry away. In an enterprise using an Army of MANY the logistics of the actions are more complex but the concept, the germ, the Basic Foundation of those actions would be Exactly The Same. To go back to the Store Owner v. Probably Deranged Person w/Submachine Gun parable, if the person with the gun leaves the store, would the Store Owner be breaking some sort of Treaty to immediately call for help? If the gunman were, in the middle of the "treaty" to turn his attention and the Shopkeeper took the opportunity to disarm the gunman and perhaps kill the gunman, would the Shopkeeper be a "terrorist" or an "insurgent" or "unlawful combatant"? If the gunman has a Gang of similar thugs with him, and the shopkeeper captures and disarms one or more of them, and holds a gun to their heads and demands the other Gunmen cease their robbery and threats of further violence, would that be a Terrorist Insurgent taking hostages, a Despicable act of Cowardice? But that's what the British and American Warmongers insist the "shopkeeper" of Iraq, and Afghanistan, and the Irish PEOPLE and Scots PEOPLE do or should have done. Negotiate only with the Representatives of the people who were appointed to that position by the Conquering Invaders? What kind of a Farce is that? The Conquerors of Iraq and Afghanistan have no more right to demand the abject surrender of the people of those nations than the British Crown did with Scotland and Ireland, indeed, the "Nobles" with whom the English Crown negotiated the treaties,

BBC: Vuvuzelas banned at many FutBol matches…

"Because they might be considered a WEAPON" And aside from that racist gratuitous raising of the Terrorist Specter out of its uneasy grave, there's the notion that it would make it where the people wouldn't hear public service safety messages. Unlike, of course, a large rowdy and NOISY crowd of the European version of Rednecks screaming, hollering and other activities which are usually the accompaniment to Drinking A Lot Of Alcohol. Those could never in any way drown out Public Safety Announcements, no sir!A growing number of Premier League clubs are following Tottenham's lead and banning vuvuzelas from their grounds on match days this season. Arsenal, Birmingham, Everton, Fulham and West Ham are the latest teams to have stated the plastic horns will not be allowed inside stadia. But they'll still sell English Beer, which is multiple times the strength of anything you'll find on the shelves in America. Drinking a quart of it could be equivalent to drinking a fifth of 80-proof whiskey. 30% alcohol content isn't the norm, but it's in the range of what's sold. And 30% = 60 proof, proof is double the percentage of alcohol by volume. Americans wouldn't be in the habit of making the mental conversions because here it's mostly used in relation to DISTILLED spirits rather than brewed. Many more Americans need to take in at least one AA meeting because that's who teach people what their drinking habits actually amount to. "but it's ONLY beer!" A lot of Brits need the Friendship of Bill W. as well. I shan't even mention Irish because that's just too easy.

British Army say Native mutineer Talib Hussain “cowardly”

Because, you know, shooting at highly organized heavily armed groups of Known Killers is never the action of somebody with courage. The Ministry of Defence propagandist disguised as a BBC writer also made clear that the invaders killing civilians, especially children, in no way equals the horrendous the crimes of "terrorist" brigands who resist the Noble Rule of the New World Imperial Order and actually shoot back...."it is ridiculous to suggest that we are engaged in suicide attacks or are deliberately killing civilians. "Insurgents and those who are against the coalition mission in Afghanistan routinely make false and exaggerated claims and so care must be taken not to accept their accounts at face value." Like the video evidence their coalition Partners are trying to suppress of the MURDER of 120 civilians, mostly children, in Granai, by those same Coalition Partners. Some exaggeration can only be expected from Imperialist Terrorists like the Defence Ministry and their Coalition Partners in the U.S. Military. It's also worthy of note that the two Officers (misidentified as "soldiers" in the report...) were from Britain and Northern Ireland (but with a distinctively English name) respectively, and the sole Native soldier, Cpl Arjun Purja Pun, actually from Nepal, all of them members of the Royal Gurkha Rifles, fighting under the banner of the British EMPIRE but allegedly, fighting for the "freedom" of the Afghan peoples to bow down and lick the boots of the Invad errr... "liberators". The Defence Ministry will of course LIE THROUGH their teeth at any opportunity, because they're fighting a Murderous War of Conquest for such noble entities as British Petroleum, Exxon Mobil, and Halliburton. Wonderful fellows and their (Imperial) tradition of using the Gurkhas as paid assassins is still being upheld.

BP Private corporate “cops” given powers over American citizens…

The Texas City and Galveston county cops even gave BP's Private Security Pigs the photographer's home phone number. and that, allegedly, to satisfy Joint Anti-Terrorism Task Force protocol. What about the Corporate Terrorism, destroying a huge chunk of the environment, directly, and the livelihood of every person dependent on that environment being sound and healthy? You know, EVERYBODY. Me, you, he and she and me and thee and we... there's not man jack of us in the entire world that isn't harmed by this. The deal about "life will survive, we won't necessarily save the planet, earth and life are going to be here long eons after we're extinct... the problem is how are we going to save Our Species?" comes to mind. And the "anti-terrorist" Security guards at the BP refinery, being photographed by a propublica reporter as part of the journalistic investigation that's apparently more thorough than Homeland InSecurity has made... the bastards are purely and simply Mercenary Terrorists. To pretend otherwise would be as absurd as saying that the Private Pigs really had some other reason for wanting the reporters phone number than being able to call him with threats, and, since BP is undoubtedly very cozy with whatever phone service the man uses, to track his whereabouts through his cell phone, something supposedly only cops who are Deputized by the PEOPLE (allegedly) to have those kinds of powers. Although, the Taxpayer owned, Privately run "justice" department doesn't give a rat's ass about any mandate from the people either.
