Justice Department Pressed to Intervene When Police Arrest Grassroots Journalists

Across the country, civilian journalists have documented government violence using cell phones to record police activities, forcing a much-needed national discourse. But in case after case after case after case, the people who face penalties in the wake of police violence are the courageous and quick-witted residents who use technology to enable transparency.

Earlier this month, the International Documentary Association launched an online petition to the Department of Justice asking the federal government to intervene when local police arrest or otherwise harass civilians who document and record police violence. EFF was proud to sign the petition, since this is an issue on which we have been increasingly active.

Third Party Loyalists: Insanity Redefined or Political Attention Deficit Disorder?

Third Party Loyalists: Insanity Redefined or Political Attention Deficit Disorder?

One audience member on the comment line following a recent Oakland, CA Green Party discussion panel—titled "Growing the Political Revolution: What's Beyond Bernie?"—cited Albert Einstein for having once defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting things to turn out differently. This maxim is actually invoked with some regularity these days as a caution against American left efforts within the Democratic Party. As the argument goes, these endeavors have been so obviously unsuccessful that any non-insane observer can see the futility of their continuation and recognize the need for a "third party" candidacy instead. The presence of this viewpoint at a Green Party event is to be expected, naturally. Nonetheless, standards of evidence should still prevail and it seems fair to pose the question of what you call it when someone fails to notice that things have turned out differently.

Insanity? Perhaps not.

Political attention deficit disorder? Maybe.

Dark Journalist: Deep State Occult Election 2016

Dark Journalist: Deep State Occult Election 2016 – Dr. Joseph Farrell

Clinton vs. Trump: Is the Deep State at war with itself? Dark Journalist, Daniel Liszt and ‘Giza Death Star’ book series author, Dr. Joseph Farrell examine the covert elements at work behind the scenes in the 2016 US Presidential Election.

Some of Farrell’s most exciting research is about the rise of Donald Trump, which he opines may originate from that part of the Deep State that’s connected with the Mafia, a longstanding relationship that is well-documented.

Entire US Presidential Election is Fake, From Start to Finish

The US presidential election just keeps getting fa

the more it goes on. Yes, it’s bread and circus time again in America, but this time around the rulers are putting on an entertainment show which has lost its ability to convince and persuade. It’s just too damn fake. We know the US and many other Western “democracies” are rigged one-party states where all the major candidates are controlled, bribed and/or blackmailed. We know that US presidents are selected, not elected. In the 2016 US presidential election, we’ve witnessed all sorts of fakery right from the start. Hillary blatantly rigged the Democratic Primaries in several states (Iowa, Nevada, Arizona and California just to name a few). She colluded with the DNC board, led by the disgraced Wasserman-Schultz, to keep Bernie out of the nomination. Then, at the DNC convention, she pulled out all the stops with a grand display of riggery and fakery, including paying people to sit there to hold her signs, playing white noise machines to drown out protests, having DNC officials turn off the lights above Bernie supporters to plunge them into darkness and all sorts of other dirty tricks.

Hillary’s Fake Health and Fake Transparency

The fakery continued after Clinton’s nomination coronation as queen at the DNC. Ever since the topic of Hillary’s health has come to light, Hillary has been in damage control mode, trying to convince a skeptical public she is well enough for the office of president, despite her coughing fits, bouts of dizziness and confusion, struggling to walk up stairs, tripping and falling, bouts of inappropriate laughter, wild crossed-eyed looks and her public seizures (see The Real Hillary Clinton for more info). Wikileaks apparently discovered that Hillary was searching online for adult diapers. Maybe she currently wears them.

Meanwhile, corrupt Hillary continues her campaign without conducting press conferences, which is highly unusual for a US presidential candidate. Zero Hedge reports it has been 273 days (absolute zero) since her last press conference! Clearly we can deduce from this that Hillary is scared of being asked some tough questions, given how flooded she is with scandal after scandal (Clinton Foundation fraud and corruption, email deletions, foreign bribery, pay to play shenanigans, the growing Clinton Body Count, etc.). There’s nothing open and transparent about her; she’s barely holding on, keeping quiet and hoping Trump will shoot himself in the foot some more between now and November 8th.


The Scourge of Neoliberalism: Why the Democratic Party Is Failing the Poor

The Scourge of Neoliberalism: Why the Democratic Party Is Failing the Poor

When Democrats began their rightward lurch in the late 1960's, they were not content to merely broaden their coalition in order to quell the rise of the ultra-reactionary right; they have been concerned, also, with preventing left-wing insurgencies that could spook their patrons and push the party left.

After Ronald Reagan's decisive victories — first in 1980 against an incumbent president whose administration had, in many ways, fueled the neoliberal turn, and again in 1984 — the efforts of Democrats eager to transform the party, both superficially and ideologically, intensified.

"The only alternative for Democrats now was to modernize," notes Shawn Gude, summarizing the prevailing attitude of the Democratic leadership. "Anything but a wholesale rethink of the party's more social-democratic commitments would invite future electoral disaster."

'The problem is, ultimately, systemic: It is about who writes the rules, and how these rules act in the real world to create extraordinary gains for some while leaving others to compete, endlessly and ruthlessly, for the rest.' (Image: DonkeyHotey/flickr/cc)

Race, Class and Justice in America

I am gratified to honor another invitation from the Detroit Unitarian Universalist Church where I have spoken before from this pulpit and other areas of this historic structure. It is important that this institution remains within this area now known as Midtown as a beacon of solidarity with an open door to those who have ideas and personal instincts that challenge the dominant intellectual and spiritual cannons that have shaped the United States and world over the last several centuries.

Our topic today addresses three of the most important unresolved questions of the 21st century where we find ourselves in a global community with the capacity to rapidly and effectively communicate and influence those around the world. Despite our technological achievements in the ability to generate, calculate, analyze, disseminate, and file data the world system of capitalism has failed to provide an adequate standard of living to the majority of humanity.

Right here in the city of Detroit people are being driven out through state-sponsored efforts utilizing the tax revenue of working families to evict and displace those who are literally paying for their own oppression and exploitation. Thousands more households remain without water due to the egregious cut-offs–and in the case of Flint, the water is not fit to drink.

Although there have been nine indictments related to the Flint water crisis and a civil suit filed by the Michigan Attorney General’s office in Lansing, no real effort is being made to rebuild the majority African American city as a wholesome and safe place to live and work. Now a situation has arose over the disposal of trash compounding the social ills related to lead poisoning in children, legionnaire’s disease, skin problems and inflated water bills for an unclean product.


The Shocking Advance Hints of the 9/11 Attacks

Clerk Note: I don't find many of the "coincidences" in the following so coincidental. "Lazy" is a better word. If you want people to think of money or wealth, simply show the dollar sign ($). So are we programmed by repetition. If you are in marketing or propaganda, use what works and keep re-enforcing the brand. If you want readers to think of the military in any way, simply flash a picture of the Pentagon. Likewise, if you want readers to think of financial power, simply flash a picture something so pompously named the World Trade Center.

Although promoted by sources that I consider disinformation, one 9/11 theme is that the WTC was never really completed or fleshed out on the inside. This and under-occupancy at the time of destruction helps explain the relatively low 9/11 death count, why more survivors aren't vocal about the WTC, why simvictims are a very real and plausible thing with regards to 9/11 and were promoted by the military as early as 1960 in Operation Norwood presented to JFK with regards to Cuba. [Simvictims being made-up, their actor families are easy to stage and get promoting other agenda milking emotions for all their worth. Control the message: a military objective in all conflicts.]

Think about it. If you wanted to create two symbols of over-towering wealth and power, if money was tight, and if their full usage could torpedo the local real estate market and overwhelm localized services, would you really need to finish every single god-damn floor in both towers?!! No. You could cut corners by concentrating on, say, only the lower 1/3 and the upper 1/3 (if not less). Flesh out various levels only when demand says so.

The point is, hollow (or mostly empty) symbols to wealth & power can be constructed, advertised, worshiped, hyped, etc. without ever really having to prove, floor by floor, that they are anything more than a fascade.

Be that as it may, hollow or not, empty or not, if you got symbols that you want to flash to the world, "all publicity is good publicity" even if symbolically targeted and "destroyed" in a fictional movie or on an album cover. Easy. And lazy to get your message across.

Doesn't make the following any less fascinating.




By: Mike King

As even the most novice student of the 9/11"conspiracy theory" is aware of, several media hints and warnings precededthe horrific events of that unforgettable history-altering day. But what many aren't aware of is just how many of these in-your-facehints there actually were and, in some case, just how diabolically detailed they were. Most disturbing of all isthat the trail of hints stretches back as much as 25 years before the big event!

That may seem unbelievable to some - "coincidental" they will say. Butwhen we study the long term planning of this 250 year old thing we call "The New World Order",we find that 10, 30 or even 50 year plans, within the multi-century Grand Plan, are quite common. You see, unlike the self-obsessed,live-for-the-day little political servants of The New World Order; the inner-core planners play the long game for the sakeof their Tribe's posterity or, for the deluded but idealistic ones, for the sake of some great Global civilization of thefuture.

With this reality in mind, some of the older hints of the 9/11 attacks begin to take on the appearance of a deliberate ritualistic mockery over what is to come.Even if some of these messages can be dismissed as "coincidental"; the sheer amount of the "coincidences",coupled with the fact that we KNOW that the official story of 9/11 is a Globalist-Zionist monster-lie, proves that many predictivesigns (some of them outrageous in scope) were indeed deliberately placed in front of our collective faces. Evidently,these Satanic psychos derive some perverse kick out of this ghoulish game of demonic deceit.

Noting that the Zionist-Globalist influence in the world of Comic Books, HollywoodFilms, TV Shows, Advertising, Video Games, and Music is immense - let us now review, in reverse chronological order, a comprehensivecollection of the hints and 'predictive programming' of the pivotal event which has since altered the course of world historylike no other event since Pearl Harbor.

Once too raw, a George Carlin special resurfaces

Once too raw, a George Carlin special resurfaces

NEW YORK — On Sept. 10, 2001, George Carlin, the greatest political comic in history if measured only by stand-up specials, recorded a bracing hour of social commentary for his new HBO special. The next day, he shelved it.

It wasn’t only the title, “I Kinda Like It When a Lotta People Die,” that seemed in bad taste after nearly 3,000 people were killed a day later in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Carlin also told a joke about a fart so potent it blew up an airplane. “You know who gets blamed? Osama bin Laden,” Carlin joked. “The FBI is looking for explosives. They should be looking for minute traces of rice and bok choy.”

If timing is everything, Carlin had nothing.

Fifteen years later, his lost special is finally being released. (It is on Sirius XM, though it will be for sale as a download or DVD on Sept. 16, at Amazon and iTunes, among other outlets.) It will be a revelation for comedy fans nostalgic for the days when you could expect a series of articulate salvos from Carlin about every two years. This special is not bonus track material. It’s a polished hour of new jokes with a virtuosic centerpiece, an intricate and elusive nearly 10-minute story that inspired its title, firmly in the tradition of Carlin’s comedy but also a fascinating departure.

A long-shelved recording of a George Carlin routine — taped Sept. 10, 2001 — will soon be released. In it, he makes a joke about Osama bin Laden being blamed for the downing of an airplane.


Pentagon Has No Idea Where Hundreds of Thousands of Guns Went in Iraq and Afghanistan

Pentagon Has No Idea Where Hundreds of Thousands of Guns Went in Iraq and Afghanistan

Over half of 1.4 million guns U.S. shipped into Iraq and Afghanistan after 9/11 are unaccounted for in DoD's own records, watchdog discovers

The U.S. government has shipped over 1.4 million guns to Iraq and Afghanistan since 9/11, according a new analysis by the U.K.-based watchdog Action on Armed Violence (AOAV), but the Pentagon is only able to account for fewer than half of them.

AOAV released its analysis of publicly available data on U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) contracts on Wednesday, and added that when requested to provide its own accounting for the small arms provided to the war-torn nations, "the DoD data shows that over 700,000 small arms were sent from the U.S. to Iraq and Afghanistan within these periods. However, this amount only accounts for 48 percent of the total small arms supplied by the U.S. government that can be found in open source government reports."

"What to do?" writes C.J. Chivers in the New York Times. "If past is precedent, given enough time one of the United States' solutions will be, once again, to ship in more guns." (Photo: Rahmat Gul/Associated Press)

Provoking Nuclear War by Media

Provoking Nuclear War by Media

The exoneration of a man accused of the worst of crimes, genocide, made no headlines. Neither the BBC nor CNN covered it. The Guardian allowed a brief commentary. Such a rare official admission was buried or suppressed, understandably. It would explain too much about how the rulers of the world rule.

The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague has quietly cleared the late Serbian president, Slobodan Milosevic, of war crimes committed during the 1992-95 Bosnian war, including the massacre at Srebrenica.

Far from conspiring with the convicted Bosnian-Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, Milosevic actually “condemned ethnic cleansing”, opposed Karadzic and tried to stop the war that dismembered Yugoslavia. Buried near the end of a 2,590- page judgement on Karadzic last February, this truth further demolishes the propaganda that justified Nato’s illegal onslaught on Serbia in 1999.

Never tell a soldier that he does not know the cost of war. Lt. Gen. Frank Benson (Alan Rickman), Eye in the Sky(2015)

All it takes is a boffin on the trigger, then goodnight all.  That is the gist of Horace Rumpole’s words in John Mortimer’s legal creation by that name – the ever direct barrister who finds himself acting in a court martial in Germany on behalf of a British soldier, member of the famed Seraphs.

Such is the ethics of modern affair: the lethal trigger instead of the bloody sword; the weapon fired at a safe distance against a human opponent with little if no chance to retaliate in fair play.  Gone are the days of empty headed light brigades charging foolishly yet breathtakingly against strong positions.

Mortimer’s reflection was penned some decades ago, primarily on the issue of potential nuclear extinction. The button of contemplation (watch those nuclear keys!), the bomb, the nuclear deterrent, had done away with the traditional players, who were essentially frustrated thespians uniformed for life’s great show.

From triggers to sticks, the emergence of the drone system, remote, piloted warfare, has further given cause to the soldier actor, where simulation has greater significance than what is being simulated.  What matters now is that the computer addled actor is a true killer, a veritable Xbox-trained murderer.  The soldier in that setting becomes a games operator framed by a world of piloted projections. Never mind that these simulations somehow disperse themselves into the effulgent destruction of a target, in all its carnage.
