Donald Trump’s surprising rise and popularity and the equally surprising durability of Bernie Sanders, an openly “socialist” candidate for a major party nomination, are both opposite responses to the collapsing historic American social compact.
It is also an indication that the forces that the GOP has so happily been courting for so long – those who tend to live in trailer parks with no more than a high school education and who love their Jesus – have found their voice, unadorned by any subtleties or coded language, just straight-up belligerence and open bigotry in Donald Trump whose rise to prominence has been wholly due to his venting the politics of resentment without apology. The answer is D, if you want to give Peyton Manning his 200th career win and frustrate your own team that has won all but one of its games this season going into the Super Bowl and were 17-1 counting the end of last season. This has to be as an overall offensive game plan, the most offensive game plan I have ever seen, equal in bone-headedness only to the worse single play-call in last year's Super Bowl by the Seattle Seahawks' offensive co-ordinator at the end. Is this a widespread belief because millions of people have studied this question, looking at history and economic and political systems over the span of human societies’ existence and all arrived at the same conclusion after painstaking study and specialized training in the tools of social science?
We are social creatures so as a rule we usually try to stay within a group – with there being natural variation along a spectrum for this norm - because being away from the group is not comfortable for most people most of the time and can cause us to literally die under some circumstances.
It’s not in the interest of the current system that you find out how the political system really operates and it’s not in their interest that you find out what’s true in many arenas in life.
As someone who regularly interacts with students and others about political power and so on, if I had a dollar for every time I've heard this sentiment cited at the beginning . Let's first look at the question of the alleged invincibility of the ones in power and the supposed perpetuity of the system they govern.
A political scientist named Ivan Arreguin-Toft compiled the data a few years ago by looking at lopsided wars over the last two hundred years. After Paris and now San Bernardino, the world wants to know: how do you stop this cycle of violence? World leaders want you to think that the only thing going on is these terrible acts of (anti-state) terrorism and they want the public to endorse their “war on terror” (state terror) which is like drinking more poison from the poison bottle that made you sick in the first place.
The current war in Iraq will generate a ferocious blowback of its own, which -- as a recent classified CIA assessment predicts -- could be longer and more powerful than that from Afghanistan. If the Devil is God's adversary - whom the Bible tells us he is, his polar opposite - why doesn't the Devil reward people instead of punishing them for sinning against God? Why is the Devil doing God's work by punishing people for defying God and for following the Devil?
What's Hell anyway but a cudgel for believers in God to use to warn people against sinning? Everyone in the world knows, including in this country, that the US is the sole superpower. What everyone does not know, most especially those in this country, is what exactly being a superpower entails.
The simplest way to put this - and the way that members of the pundit class have increasingly openly admitted in the last fifteen years or so - is that the US in an Empire.
One comment that regularly comes up from at least some students during my sociology classes at some point is some variant on this statement: "It's human nature and that’s why we have social problems. This is so common an idea and taken for granted as so well understood and true that nobody has to bother to try to justify it.
In what has to be a completely unprecedented turn of events, Congressional Republicans are complaining that intelligence assessments of Islamic State's strength are being downplayed by the Obama Administration. And intelligence analysts are feeling pressure to toe the official administration line that Islamic State is being degraded.
Author's note: Tonight is the Academy Awards and the film American Sniper is up for possible Oscars.
So even though that lie has been made public since the invasion (a lie that some of us tried to warn people about before the invasion, but mass media refused to give that information to the country), many people still can't think straight enough to realize that American Sniper is about a killer who deserves condemnation, not praise.
In dishonor of tonight's expected touting of this war crime of a movie, I am reprinting an analysis that I posted on January 8, 2010 after the Nigerian student Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab unsuccessfully tried to blow up his boxer briefs on a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on Xmas Day, 2010. People should remember this when they hear the "one story" told by police officers and vigilantes like George Zimmerman, relating their sole accounts of why they just had to shot to death their black or brown victims, making certain there are not surviving victims to tell a radically different story.
John Yoo, principal author of the Office of Legal Counsel’s “Torture Memos” that gave the green light to the CIA and other governmental agencies to carry out torture under Bush, has this week surprisingly distanced himself from some of the torture techniques, saying on Fareed Zakaria’s CNN show on December 11, 2014 that if the Senate’s Torture Report accounts are true, that the CIA was acting outside of the Justice Department’s authorization and could be prosecutable for that. Yoo, as those who follow these things know, has been an unabashed proponent of torture and so his sudden discovery of the law and a conscience seems startling. The first article of this series’ main point was that the unjust and murderous actions of officers such as Pantaleo and Wilson are not aberrations but in fact a logical outgrowth of, entirely consistent with, inspired by, and necessary corollaries to, US governmental policies, both here and abroad. Consider the rationale for the so-called “war on terror” and the invasions and occupations of numerous countries, such as Iraq and Afghanistan. All of these acts have been and are being carried out under the official rationale of “protecting American lives” by torturing and killing very large numbers of people. If authorities were to do anything that would in any way cause the police to feel that they did not have complete license to constantly harass, brutalize, and kill, then this system could not continue. The nature of economic and political power today under neoliberal regimes is so outrageously unfair, unjust, cold-blooded, deceitful, destructive, murderous, and belligerent, and becoming more so with every passing week, the only way to hold back the flood of outrage that has finally been unleashed against it is to continue to use repression on an even grander scale than that which unleashed this storm of resistance and disgust in the first place.
Ask yourself, why would the government blatantly uphold the obvious crime committed by Daniel Pantaleo who choked Eric Garner to death in front of the camera while Eric pleaded that he could not breathe over and over until he was suffocated? Authorities certainly did not anticipate that they were opening the floodgates by issuing this non-indictment in the immediate aftermath of the fury and protest of so many to Ferguson.
But they also could not afford to slap Pantaleo on the wrist because Pantaleo was doing exactly what the police have been training to do.
I trust that the police will do their best to harass and kill black (and brown) people whenever they see an opportunity.
So in spite of the fact that the NYPD officer who killed Eric Garner did so with an illegal chokehold (by the NYPD's own standards) and despite the fact that the official coroner's report ruled Eric's death a "homicide," the grand jury has found no cause to indict Eric's murderer, Daniel Pantaleo.
Can there be any more obvious case of someone who has been unjustly killed by a police officer? As a colleague of mine put it in making this point to me recently, this would be like her going into class and saying “I’m sorry, I just can’t give a lecture.” This is her job. This is, of course, a conclusion that you will hear from almost none of those who are commenting on this case in mainstream media.
Many years ago when a group of political activists (dubbed in the press the “Mao Zedong Defendants”) were arrested and put on trial for allegedly attacking a large group of police officers, I sat in the courtroom in Honolulu State Court on the defendants’ bench and listened with fascination at the parade of cops telling their version of the events of that day of our arrests.
I was fascinated by it because the cops’ accounts were a) all entirely consistent with each other, with not a single detail in any degree at variance or in contradiction to the others’ details (multiple eyewitness testimony is never entirely consistent when they're trying to tell the truth given the vagaries of individuals' observations and memories), and b) very vivid descriptions of how powerful my comrades were, two-thirds of them Asian females no taller than 5’ 1” tall and less than 100 pounds a piece, since according to these officers of the law, the officers had all been victims of a brutal assault by these Amazons.
To underscore how powerful and fierce my female activists must have been, the cops were to a man, at least 6' tall and weighed no less than 200 pounds a piece. Officer Wilson, why did you shoot and kill Michael Brown, when he had his hands up and was telling you he gives up, why did you have to shoot him six times? Some people find it unremarkable that Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has called out the National Guard, declaring a state of emergeny, prior to a grand jury's decision about whether or not to indict officer Darren Wilson for killing Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. I find it remarkable that some people don't find the calling out of the National Guard to be outrageous. Upon hearing that Missouri's governor Jay Nixon has today called upon the National Guard, declaring a state of emergency for Ferguson and St. The following excerpt is from a NYT Op-Ed entitled "Pregnant, and No Civil Rights" by Lynn Paltrow and Jeanne Flavin, published on November 7, 2014.
In Iowa, a pregnant woman who fell down a flight of stairs was reported to the police after seeking help at a hospital. The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change on Sunday, November 1, 2014, issued its starkest warning to date. Failure to reduce emissions, the group of scientists and other experts found, could threaten society with food shortages, refugee crises, the flooding of major cities and entire island nations, mass extinction of plants and animals, and a climate so drastically altered it might become dangerous for people to work or play outside during the hottest times of the year.
This is a transcript of Dennis Loo’s prepared remarks at a Cal Poly Pomona Symposium on Stop Mass Incarceration, Police Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation on the evening of October 21, 2014. Michelle Alexander, the author of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, recounts at the beginning of her book that when she first began working as a civil rights attorney over a decade ago, the prevailing view was that the battle for civil rights had essentially been won and that the main battlefront in defending those gains was in affirmative action cases and so on, a view that matched her own attitude at the time. Two health workers at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital where Liberian Thomas Eric Duncan was treated and died from Ebola have now tested positive for Ebola. When Pham came down with Ebola, officials initially blamed her for not following proper procedures. As this article (“Health workers need optimal respiratory protection for Ebola”) by national respiratory protection and infectious disease experts Lisa Brosseau, SCD, and Rachael Jones, PhD, published in the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy on September 17, 2014, makes clear, however, Ebola can be transmitted through facemasks by being aerosolized through coughing, sneezing, or even, we should assume, breathing by an infected person. The police say that Myers and several friends ran when the off duty cop tried to make “a pedestrian stop” on them and that Myers shot at the cop first.
Why does an off-duty cop feel like he can be making “pedestrian stops” of Black youth while he's moonlighting as a security guard?
Comparisons are meaningless at this level of evil, as are attempts to explain the horror by delving into the psychology or rationale of the perpetrators.
However, to throw up one’s hands and claim that trying to understand what’s generating such a group’s horrors is impossible to do, and to claim that calling their acts “crimes against humanity” is to put a “legalistic spin on raw evil,” is a form of raw stupidity.
If we want to do something about ISIS, then we need to ask ourselves what is causing ISIS in the first place. ISIS and al-Qaeda are the bitter fruit of the US invasions and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. Let us assume, for the sake of argument, that the US government's claims are true that its airstrikes on Syria killed eight leaders of the Khorasan Group, an al-Qaeda offshoot, thus foiling an "imminent attack” on the US homeland.
Even if a) Khorasan was in fact planning an “imminent” attack and b) their key leaders were killed, exactly how did this decapitation stop that “imminent” attack (and especially, future ones)? This question - “who are you to say?” - gets posed, either explicitly or implicitly, fairly frequently by at least some, if not many, people in retort to those who seek to lead others in political change. In the US where individualism and “personal choice” are highly valued by the dominant (mass) culture, the idea that anyone would challenge the notion that everyone’s opinions are all equally valid – or at least, depending upon what company you keep, the views that are most common among your chosen political persuasion - strikes many people as at best rude and at worst the views of someone you should avoid. Since Earth’s creation, no natural threats to its existence compare to the danger that it now faces from climate change, caused by human activity.
Gigantic meteors have struck the earth and volcanoes have spewed out enormous amounts of smoke and ash that dramatically altered the landscape and deeply impacted the flora and fauna, and perhaps caused the massive die off of dinosaurs … but they are not as grave a threat to the existence of Earth now confronting us.
Nuclear winter, a threat during the Cold War between the US and the Soviet Union that could have been catastrophic had it happened, is arguably less of a threat than climate change. Editor's note: Alice Walker - on her own initiative - penned this poem in honor of Carl Dix and Cornel West, calling forth others to join in this October's Month of Resistance to Mass Incarceration, Police Terror, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. As I pointed out in the first part of this series, the US inadvertently created ISIS, a nightmare that Obama is now feverishly trying to, but will be unable to, wake up from.
I am going to make this very short because I have previously written on this case extensively, both in articles and in the comments threads, especially in the thread after my first article on this. The judge has ruled that Pistorius committed "culpable homicide" and that he did not know that he was shooting his girlfriend as he was doing it. For Judge Thokozile Masipa to find that Pistorius did not know that he was shooting Reeva Steenkamp to death requires that the judge overlook not only all the very damning testimony and evidence presented, not only Pistorius' ever-changing, contradictory, and self-convicting affidavit and testimony, including his absurd claim that he did not check to see if Reeva was in the bed before he got up to see about the "intruder," she must specifically overlook the fact that Reeva was screaming - so loudly that neighbors heard it - continuously while Oscar proceeded to shoot her four times. I say this not because the US government set out to create ISIS and had a hand via covert intel in bringing it into being. Grave crimes and injustices produce two kinds of responses from those victimized by those crimes. On the one hand, it sensitizes people to oppression and makes many of them more likely to oppose oppression. On the other hand, some victims or witnesses to oppression identify with the oppressors rather than with the oppressed. In this second case, victims to injustice seek to avoid being oppressed ever again by becoming oppressors themselves: “Better to be the oppressor than be one of the oppressed,” they think. Prisons, for example, contain a group of people referred to as “trustees” who are prisoners who help the guards police and patrol the prisoners, without which the guards would need far more guards to control the prison population.
Contrary to much of the media coverage of Ferguson, the issue here isn't whether the protests are "peaceful" or not.
These are the words of arrogant racists who think – no, know – that the whole edifice of racism backs them up. Nevertheless there appears to be an informal or tacit agreement among the above anglo-saxon countries not to spy on each other. I was surprised that people who witnessed me risk my life to expose the surveillance practices of my own country could not believe that I might also criticise the surveillance policies of Russia, a country to which I have sworn no allegiance, without ulterior motive.
In what German public broadcaster ARD said was Snowden’s first television interview, Snowden also said he believes the NSA has monitored other top German government officials along with Chancellor Angela Merkel. Mr Rogers offered no firm evidence to back his theory, and the FBI is said to remain sure Mr Snowden acted alone.
If that were all that Snowden had done, if his stolen trove of beyond-top-secret documents had dealt only with the NSA’s domestic surveillance, then some form of leniency might be worth discussing.
The Times editorial page operates independently from the Times news operation, so I’m not suggesting that Executive Editor Jill Abramson instructed Editorial Page Editor Andrew Rosenthal what to write.
The second tier of Western surveillance expertise comprises Israel, Sweden, Germany, Finland, Norway, Italy and France. At least one studio has already pulled out of the bidding because of the myriad legal and logistical issues that plague the telling of Greenwald’s Snowden story. At the beginning of 2013, Snowden was hired by Booz Allen Hamilton, a government contractor who put him to work for the National Security Agency.
The Washington Post revealed on Thursday one of the most closely held secrets within the U.S.
The $52.6 billion “black budget” for fiscal 2013, obtained by The Washington Post from former ­intelligence contractor Edward Snowden, maps a bureaucratic and operational landscape that has never been subject to public scrutiny. Reporter says he will expose UK spying secrets after his partner was detained at Heathrow airport under terror law.
Miranda, 28, was detained for nine hours under UK terrorism law on Sunday as he passed through London’s Heathrow Airport on his way home to Brazil. These developments are rapidly revising the conventional view of the role of the First Amendment in national security cases. A Russian lawyer who has been assisting Snowden said the American, who is wanted in the United States for leaking details of secret government intelligence programmes, had gone to a secure location which would remain secret.
Commercial carriers have the freedom to use airspace of other countries, known as the First Freedom of the air, the centerpiece of a complex but well-established system that keeps global air transportation running smoothly. Snowden, in his video interview with the Guardian released over the weekend, made the point that his revelations did not go up against silence so much as against statements that, in one way or another, were not true.


If this sounds a bit like “back to the future” with a high tech twist, we can thank Edward Snowden. The 30-year-old is in legal limbo in the transit area of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, unable to fly on to a hoped-for destination in Latin America because he has no legal travel documents and no Russian visa to leave the airport. Assange appears to have had a strong role in obtaining the travel document for Snowden, dated 22 June which bore the printed name, but not signature, of the London consul, Fidel Narvaez, a confidante. The Hong Kong authorities waited until Snowden was safely out of Chinese airspace before sending out a short press release that confirmed the intelligence whistle-blower had been allowed to leave on Aeroflot flight SU213, bound for Russia. His latest claims came as US officials, who have filed criminal charges against him, warned Hong Kong to comply with an extradition request or risk complicating diplomatic relations after some of the territory’s politicians called for Snowden to be protected. The Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald wonders how these prosecutions are even “remotely defensible” . A Meet the Press panel of experts discusses how the intelligence community infrastructure prompts whistleblowers to leak information. The individual responsible for one of the most significant leaks in US political history is Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of the defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. According to the Guardian, Snowden is a 29-year-old high school dropout who trained for the Army Special Forces before an injury forced him to leave the military. May 20, 2013: Edward Snowden, an employee of defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton at the National Security Agency, arrives in Hong Kong from Hawaii. June 6, 2013: A second story reveals the existence of the previously undisclosed programme Prism, which internal NSA documents claim gives the agency “direct access” to data held by Google, Facebook, Apple and other US internet giants. The present Chief of Intelligence of the EU, Admiral Georgij Alafuzoff of Finland … . However, a reasonable counter argument is that [if] the disclosures diminish the likelihood of the US being able to prevent some terrorist attacks … the Admiral’s conclusions could be questioned.
What Would You Do If The “Edward Snowden” of the Secretive Financial Establishment Wanted YOU To Help Him Expose “Dark Door” Trading Secrets Hidden From Regular Traders The World Over…?
You’ll get the Exclusive Inside Scoop on how the brains behind the biggest stock moves of the century choose their stocks, enter their positions, and make 80% of all stock market profits! You’ll get every detail on how they find, time, enter and exit their trades, and much much more. You likely don’t need me to remind you that what your currently doing is not going to get you the results your after, and that your struggle to achieve your financial dreams is in vein. They scan the markets for set-ups, they watch as technical patterns form, and they wait for that perfect timing. You eventually realize that all the time spent doing all the work was really making you nothing more than pennies!
And what you are about to discover is one of the most powerful ways I’ve ever seen to help you bounce back with a vengeance. I remember the very day that I had the courage to take a close look at my trading history, it was awful.
The fact that I had to keep funding my account was my first clue that I wasn’t making any money. It was depressing to find success so out of reach, with something I was so passionate about and so committed to.
I truly loved trading, I wanted to master it, not just for the freedom it would allow me and the ones I loved, but also to be able to conquer something I’d worked so hard at. If HOWEVER, you said NO to these questions, then keep reading, because what I’m going to share with you will likely shock the hell out of you! Make $500 to $800 and More Per Trade – In just 3 clicks of your mouse you will be right smack on top of only the best trading opportunities available.
Slash Your Risk – This new method will allow you to make more money then you thought possible, while taking on only a fraction of the risk.
There’s also no way I can guarantee this letter will be up long, so read every word now while you can! His job was to find stocks ready to explode at any time.  Everyday he would scan every sector and industry and keep close tabs on the markets. Using the resources afforded by unlimited access to the  most expensive tools and information in the business, he was fluent in his ability to pinpoint and alert their small but elite group of investors immediately, when Big Moves were about to happen. He worked with a small staff on the 3rd level of a building in downtown Philadelphia and together this little staff of 4 would scour the markets and pull out the cream of the crop.
It would be like looking at individual puzzle pieces and trying to put a large puzzle together without a plan. JT went on to say that there’s a secret formula to doing this that allows you to use the overall market, industry, sector and ultimately stock, to find out where the strength is – INSTANTLY!
He said although they relied on technical analysis for timing their entry, they used relative price strength to identify and gauge only the strongest movers of the day, week or month. In order to train the hired help, they had to turn their success system into a step by step process.
They literally hired scientific programmers to breakdown all the success they experienced and turn it into a systematic process. He said in 3 clicks of his mouse he could be on top of the top 3 stocks most likely to explode in any market in the world.
One requirement he said is having the right charts for viewing this information, you had to use charts to view everything, and for the most part, you need an easy way to look at a 3-6 month time frame to truly asses strength, and potential.
Making them prime prospects for ripe explosions, at the first sign of strength - one of his favorite strategies!
In other words, he could almost completely duplicate what his $100,000.00 a month set of tools at the office did for him – FROM HOME! We are privy to a level of accuracy in the markets that a retail trader would only dream of.
So after I watched your tutorials on Finviz I started experimenting on my own, and I stumbled upon a way to  duplicate the same exact algorithms we use in our office. This has been a Godsend to me because now I can get a jump on my coworkers and do my research early in the morning from home. He said he wishes he could tell me, but he could get into a lot of trouble if he said anything. So I’m thinking, why would he thank me with such detail, without giving me at least some clues?
Most emails I get like this are garbage.  I get them every day from people all over the world telling me that their system makes them millions, and they have never lost on a single trade and bla bla bla bla bla! I don’t think I could have asked for a better segue into what I wanted to happen!  Lets just say that what followed went much better then expected.
He showed me how a market correction is the best news in the world for any investor or trader, and how they would make an absolute killing after a correction.
He showed me EXACTLY how they jumped into existing trends, and a couple of tricks for timing entry into bounces and double bottoms that was about 99% accurate. What he showed me in 3 hours was shocking, it was shocking to see that I could have had this same access all along for free! I documented everything.  This was truly the Holy Grail for any stock trader wishing to make his fortune with stocks. I could find day trades that were poised to move right now, and I could at the very same time find trades to get into for the long haul. Master Big Bank Tactics – See Exactly How The Big Banks Sniff Out Big Movers Within Minutes of The Markets Opening and Most Often Before Any Institutions Even Have A Clue! 3 Clicks To Financial Prosperity – This is what JT said in the first demo he gave me on how to find the biggest money grabbing stocks available.

So I want to prove to you that, not only is the real deal, but that you absolutely will make a killing with these tactics, AND that you will do so without any risk whatsoever. In order to prove this works like I thought it would, and to test it out on people who were relatively new to trading I shared it with my $4,500 coaching clients. We can find 6-10 trades and even if were only half right, the ones that move EXPLODE, and the ones that don’t?
This trade hasn’t made me any money yet, and it may not make me money, but its definitely got blockbuster potential. If you want to find stocks ready to explode, you could pay several financial analysts for this information,  or  you could use this method (that costs nothing) to get even better results.
JT’s method for uncovering powerful forces in the stock market is only enhanced 10 fold by his top secret methods for timing his entries. These 2 method he uses to enter his trades remove even more risk, and give him a risk profile that is second to none. By the time you build you’re little portfolio of rock stars you’re risk is so minimal that your free to go about your days and weeks living life to the fullest! Nothing sweeter then coming how from a ski trip in Utah to find that my account is up $3280.00 – Especially when my trip cost much less!
Or that while you were on that Alaskan fishing trip you pocketed a cool $1870.00 while Living Life!
How about coming home from work and finding you made more money in the markets then you did slaving away at work all day!
Ya, I know it sounds cocky, but you have to admit being the envy of others is a nice position to take when it comes to your ability to make money. If your friends or relatives wished they were like you when it came to turning a profit, you have likely reached a respected level of success!

They will kill many people, both those they are explicitly targeting in ISIS and innocents who they are inevitably going to be mostly killing, and destroy infrastructure that supports people's lives on the ground, and this will produce some losses to ISIS.
But even with a half-black POTUS, and with more black faces in charge of major institutions such as the Attorney General’s Office, racism is getting worse, with more blacks dying at cops’ hands than they were being lynched during the height of the KKK’s reign of terror. But in order to see things clearly and correctly, this frequently means that you have to be willing to stand outside of the prevailing norm. You have to fight very hard and against the grain to learn the truth and then you have to try to get others to see what’s true, which is also difficult because what you’re telling them goes against what they have been told so often and by so many for so long.
Malcolm Gladwell in David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants cites Arreguin-Toft’s data. Hardly a recipe that conforms to what the majority of people believe so emphatically that they would call the victory of a superior force a slam dunk. But it’s like walking into a movie 45 minutes after it started and trying to figure out what’s going on without knowing how what’s going on got triggered in the first place. If you are a sinner, according to the Christian faith, then why do you go to Hell and eternal fire and suffering, presided over by Satan with great delight?
If you do the Devil's bidding and do as he recommends, then why should the Devil then punish you for doing what he asks you to do, unless, of course, the Devil is a device invented in the Bible as an enforcer of God's will, and merely pretending to be an adversary of God?
People are naturally selfish, greedy and violent." This is something that you can hear someone in the street or other setting state very readily and with great assurance in their voices that what they're saying is as true as the sky is blue. It's remarkable that such a stupid film that celebrates an American soldier for killing scores of people in Iraq and in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, could be so lauded.
All you would have to do to wake some of these impressionable people up, however, is to ask them a simple question: What the hell is the US doing in Iraq in the first place? It brings up the truth about this big lie called the "war on terror" and how it actually creates anti-state terrorists such as ISIL.
He famously stated in a public debate on December 1, 2005, for example, that if POTUS ordered a boy’s testicles to be crushed in order to extract information from his father, that this would be acceptable if POTUS was doing it to protect the US. Well over a million Iraqis alone have died since our unjust and illegal invasion of their country based on a lie.
If it’s to save American lives, then anything is justified, even massive crimes routinely committed against innocents. To sanction Pantaleo is to make a mockery of what they have been directing and socializing their police force to do. Grand juries are the instrument of prosecutors, so this decision is really the prosecutor's decision not to find any reason to try Pantaleo.


Instead, you will hear again and again that police officers are trained to use their guns to kill if they use them at all and that the presumption under the law in Missouri and in general is always if the police used deadly force that they must have felt threatened enough to kill. It must be the intense study sessions of revolutionary science that my fellow activists spent so much time on because they had behemoth-like powers against these poor, defenseless officers of the law. Their view points to a) an inadequate understanding of what civil liberties are, and b) a faulty understanding of what is in play in Ferguson. Health care providers believed that the stillbirth was the result of the woman’s decision to delay having a cesarean.
The Drug War was indeed the New Jim Crow, a way of rendering black and brown people to a permanent second-class caste status, robbed of their rights, deprived of any housing assistance, the right to vote and serve on a jury, condemned to filling out job apps that asked the inevitable question that ruled you out of employment “have you ever been convicted of a felony?” all without being blatantly racist. Hospital spokespeople expressed astonishment that first nurse Nina Pham and now a so-far unidentified health care worker contracted Ebola, despite wearing facemasks, gowns, gloves, et al, as per their supervisors’ instructions and CDC protocols. A strikingly similar sequence of events has occurred in Spain, with two nurses coming down with Ebola who were following the instructions they were given, with government spokesmen initially blaming the nurses - and then in response to angry protest, retracting their pompous blaming - for the nurses' contracting the disease.
This killing and the story the police are using to justify it reflect how Black people are criminalized in this society. Even to call what this group does “crimes against humanity” is to put a legalistic spin on raw evil; as Roger Cohen, the New York Times columnist, wrote in a recent piece about ISIS, there is no “why” in the heart of darkness. In the Nazi concentration camps there were Jews who, in exchange for temporarily at least being saved from execution, facilitated in their fellow camp residents being sent to their deaths. The issue is whether or not the police will be allowed to continue to get away with cold bloodedly executing black people (and others).
These are the words of racist pigs who know that they can get away with murdering those treated as no better than dirt by the police and by the justice system. In 1984, when I was on a visit to London I had the more than distinct impression that unilateral intelligence operations in Britain were off the table. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden told German TV on Sunday about reports that U.S. They are not illegal, improper, or (in the context of 21st-century international politics) immoral. The news pages of the New York Times have directly benefited from top-secret leaks from Snowden to break stories since last August, when the paper acquired a cache of his NSA material from the Guardian.
All are proficient, say the professionals, and all spy on any target deemed to be in their national interest, whether related to security or commerce.
According to a report in Friday’s The New York Times, while working as a CIA technician back in 2009, Snowden was sent home from an overseas posting due to the suspicions of supervisor — who suspected him of trying to gain unauthorized access to classified files.
Although the government has annually released its overall level of intelligence spending since 2007, it has not divulged how it uses the money or how it performs against the goals set by the president and Congress. His electronic devices were confiscated and he was questioned about all aspects of his life.
It is collecting information from and about journalists, calling one a criminal and threatening another with jail.
The scale of disclosures made possible by digital media, the government’s vast surveillance apparatus and the rise of unorthodox publishers like WikiLeaks have unsettled time-honored understandings of the role of mass media in American democracy. Polygraphs, with all of their shortcomings in reliability and “false positives,” also have a scare factor for potential leaker-defectors. A DoJ spokeswoman tells Politico that under the extradition agreement between Washington and Hong Kong, the U.S. Some of the more explosive details in the initial reporting of his NSA leaks aren’t holding up to scrutiny, though — and now even the story he tells about himself is starting to unravel a bit. German commentators say that both Berlin and Brussels must defend Europe from this invasion of privacy. Snowden worked as a systems administrator at an NSA Threat Operations Center in Hawaii, one of several such facilities that are tasked with detecting threats to government computer systems. Snowden has been working at the National Security Agency for the last four years as an employee of various outside contractors, including Booz Allen and Dell.
From the moment he decided to disclose numerous top-secret documents to the public, he was determined not to opt for the protection of anonymity. His IT credentials are apparently limited to a few “computer” classes he took at a community college in order to get his high school equivalency degree—courses that he did not complete. They meet Snowden in a Kowloon hotel after he identifies himself with a Rubik’s cube and begin a week of interviews with their source. The tech companies deny that they have set up “back door access” to their systems for the U.S.
Are You Over Joyed At Your Current Level of Success – Does the idea of waking up in the morning to see how much money you can make, excite the hell out of you ?  Are you eager to share with your friends and family how well your doing? Thousands of traders pay $299 a month for simple recomendations, you’re getting much more then that. Reuters later reported that RSA became the most important distributor of that formula by rolling it into a software tool called Bsafe that is used to enhance security in personal computers and many other products. It makes helpful viewing now in the wake of the Brussels' terrorist attacks and the call by our government for more of the very same policies - state terror - that spawned these terrorist attacks and the birth of ISIS themselves. Truth is not a simple thing to obtain and it usually involves a personal cost exacted for its acquisition.
This is even more the case if they are among those who actually benefit from the status quo. What prompts me breaking my lengthy silence is an article that appears this month at the Harvard Political Review entitled "The Last Maoists of Cambridge." A month ago, the author, Gram Slattery, while preparing his article, approached me via email. How would you feel as an American if Iraq's army had invaded us fourteen years ago, after claiming that because we had weapons of mass destruction that we were a threat to them and that they had to invade and kill over a million Americans to prevent the "greater evil?" How would you feel if an Iraqi Sniper killed scores of Americans while occupying America who openly wished he had killed more American "savages"? It was disgusting." One can either credit these allegations, or believe that three [black] NYPD officers conspired to lie under oath.
Yoo needs to explain how crushing a boy’s testicles is better than sodomy with hummus, keeping detainees awake for up to seven days (a sure technique for driving someone literally mad), putting people into coffin boxes for protracted periods of time, and waterboarding people until they are unconscious and had to be revived. Eric Garner was subjected to Pantaleo's chokehold for the "crime" of selling cigarettes in the streets. Handling physical altercations and conflict is what cops are supposedly trained explicitly to do without always resorting to unnecessary or disproportionate, including lethal, force. Louis Mayor James Knowles III, and by the FBI, to intimidate and suppress any prospective demonstrations, is based upon their clear expectations that the grand jury's verdict will be to exonerate Wilson's shooting Brown to death. One day short of 2 months after the police murder of Michael Brown, another Black life is stolen. Witnesses to the incident say Myers was unarmed, that he had just bought a sandwich and that’s all he had in his hands when he was chased and gunned down. Some Black youth walking together are suspicious and need to be jacked up by a cop, even if the cop is off duty. If you attack a disease without knowing what’s causing it, then you could – and in this case will - accelerate rather than curb the disease. What Obama is doing in ordering relentless airstrikes in Syria and Iraq is fueling ISIS, not damaging it. Who are you to say that climate change is a dire emergency and not a hoax or an exaggerated response to “adverse” weather?
When the Japanese imperialists invaded China in the 1930s there were some Chinese who sided with the Japanese invaders and sold out their own people. For the last decade, the news side has been breaking stories about warrantless surveillance by the NSA, a secret bank-data surveillance program, and, via WikiLeaks, the war logs from Iraq and Afghanistan and the U.S.
Yet, that didn’t stop Snowden from retaining his security clearance when he switched jobs and moved to the NSA. The document, which was provided to the paper by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, reveals that U.S. 11, 2001, but remain unable to provide critical information to the president on a range of national security threats, according to the government’s top-secret budget. He now becomes the eighth person to be charged under the Espionage Act under Obama, according to Firedoglake. He has broken his promise to keep secret the info he got through his work, but he has not exposed anything harmful to the security of US or her allies. I wanted to follow up with you and discuss a few things, I don’t work for my employer anymore and wondered if we could talk? This would seem to call for the indictment, conviction, and loss of pensions for the top NSA deciders, and enough RICO lawsuits to put RSA out of business.  Shame!
Hayden and Alexander should be indicted, tried in both criminal and military courts, and if (when) found guilty, reduced in retirement rank of Colonel, with appropriate cuts in their pensions. In other words, the US government wants to drown the raging fire by pouring more gasoline on the fire they created in the first place! If they are among that group of people, it is extremely hard and, in many instances, impossible to convince people of what’s true if what’s true goes against their personal interests. Not only do I hear it incessantly, it's boring to hear this tired nostrum, spoken with the assurance of absolute certainty! Wouldn't Satan, who supposedly opposes God, make Hell into a pleasurable afterlife, rewarding those who have followed the Devil's evil ways, rather than giving them everlasting damnation? He wanted to know why I was one of those who signed a statement in support of people engaging the works of Bob Avakian. Eric Garner's real crime in the eyes of this system, however, was the crime of being black. If, as my colleague further went on to point out, Wilson was indeed being physically assaulted by Brown while in the driver's seat of his police car while the car was running, then all he had to do is step on the gas pedal. People gathered at the scene of the murder to protest it within minutes and soon the crowd had grown to several hundred angry people.
This is like the Black Codes that southern states, including Missouri, enforced during the days of slavery which gave whites the power to break up any gatherings of 3 or more Black people.
As virulent as ISIS is, it will grow under the US air strikes the way that a fire rises ever higher and hotter if you try to drown it by pouring gasoline on it.
Al-Qaeda in turn was created by the US's policies in Afghanistan when the Russians were occupying Afghanistan in the 1980s.
He has broken his secrecy agreement with the CIA, which is a lifetime thing, and he must pay for it, if the United States can manage to bring him into custody. Snowden has got himself in a difficult position, with about thirty agendas that may be quite different than his own (including Putin’s). Pushkov is someone who might be expected to know; he is close to the Vladmir Putin regime and the chair of the Duma’s international-affairs committee. Then, amazingly, he moved up the ranks of the United States’ national security infrastructure: The CIA gave him a job in IT security.
Only info detrimental to politicians and civil servants who have not done their work properly or even legally.
This was a full page ad that ran in The New York Review of Books in 2008 entitled: "Dangerous times demand courageous voices. And hence, he could be murdered by those licensed killers who wear badges, without any consequences.
The ocean is acidifying and in danger of being unable to sustain life within a mere few decades, for a third. A resident whose son had been with Myers on Wednesday night said, "They have been harassing him all day like they do all the time, pulling him over, stopping him." "That's how it is. The initial form of al-Qaeda was the mujahideen, which the US government funded and supported, as a counter to the Russian occupation. There will ever and always be people who will exchange solidarity for personal comfort, even if that comfort at times is triflingly small.
The editorial page has lectured the government on its overreach and incompetence in the security realm. But in another, post-deletion tweet, Pushkov said that it was just something he’d seen on television. Prior to Obama’s administration only three people who leaked information had been charged under the 1917 statute that was never really intended for leakers. And now, after it has just proven itself so inept at handling its own information, the agency still wants us to believe that it can securely hold on to all of our data? He cannot see Snowden’s actions having any effect on the security or safety of US or EU.
And what would you be doing towards the Iraqi invaders if they were the occupying and marauding foreign army in our streets? And we need not even go beyond the third to recognize the magnitude of this catastrophe happening as we speak and as we (still) live and breathe. Supreme Court which said that Black people had no rights that white people are bound to respect.
The mujahideen became al-Qaeda subsequently as a form of "blowback" when the US abandoned them when the specific goal of the Russians leaving Afghanistan was achieved, and when more importantly, the US continued to occupy the holy land of Saudi Arabia (Mecca and Medina) with troops, prop up widely despised dictators in the Arab world, and support Israel in its policies aimed at annihilating the Palestinian people.
Abramson and Rosenthal, who report to the same publisher, obviously harmonize on this score.
That is somehow of a piece with how Snowden’s entire stop-and-start journey has gone: his flight has been improvised not out of bits and pieces but out of very large geopolitical parts barely held together with a schoolroom glue stick, or whatever you can buy in the transit zone at Sheremetyevo airport.
He was hired by Booz Allen Hamilton, the government contractor, which paid him $200,000 a year to work on the NSA’s computer systems. Our kids walk around in their own neighborhood and get harassed for it." This is the reality of life in this country for Black people. Even if they didn’t, it’s unlikely in the extreme that a Times editorial would ever call for a Times news-side source to be seated in a Judas Cradle as punishment for leaking to the press. It has become a daily fact of life that Black youth have to fear for their lives, and face the danger of summary execution by police at any time, for doing anything, or nothing.
