This discussion of the value of the right to “free speech” (and right to associate, free press, and religion) is so timely right now given all the challenges to the First Amendment these days, everything from McCarthyist attempts to shut down RT as “Russiagate”, BDS boycott of illegal Israel occupation as “anti-Semitic” and speakers labeled as “hate speech.”
The easy answer to all these attempts to suppress dissent and free speech is to just support the First Amendment. Come hear what Minnesota ACLU’s legislative director says tomorrow evening.
So if the NSA-CIA-FBI has been unable to catch or stop the “Shadow-Brokers” who have penetrated their security and are stealing all of their top secret hacking tools and inside info and doesn’t even know if the “Shadow Brokers” are their own disloyal insiders who are responsible, why don’t they suspect the “Shadow Brokers” as being responsible for stealing the DNC emails? It’s funny that the NYT writers don’t even ask the question.
At very least, the years-long difficulty of solving the mystery of the “Shadow Brokers” should pose the very same question, that a cyber-security insider or insiders were responsible for the DNC exfiltration. The US Cyber Command was apparently naive to believe that only their side would be able to profit from and avail themselves of these powerful hacking tools and malware flaws. Also it was naive for the NSA-CIA to assume the loyalty of their own hackers who, after all, are recruited from criminal actors, handed illegal tools and then given permission to act lawlessly on others.
Jean Bricmont’s historical insights are so correct related to news of more NATO build-up below:
“Yesterday we commemorated the end of WW1. Now, people who claim to draw “lessons of history » and say « never again » about fascism or « stalinism » forget that both Communism and fascism were products of that war. It is the total collapse of Europe due to that war that created such movements.
But what are the causes of WW1? Probably many, but one of them is certainly the nationalist propaganda, as well as the military buildups, on all sides. Nowadays, the propaganda is more « human rights » than nationalist (although in Poland, Ukraine and the Baltic states it is also nationalist) and based on the evidence-free Russian hacking story (a face saving story for Clinton), and the military buildup is shown in that article.
Now if people were really concerned about “lessons of history », it seems to me that they should first of all criticize that propaganda, oppose the military buildup and promote diplomacy. Instead of that, they often view any peace initiative as another « Munich ».”
En raison de la percussion d’une masse non encore identifiée par un train précédent, risque de gros retard sur le TGV Barcelone Marseille parti à 17.42 de Figueras mais bon management de l’incident par les contrôleurs sncf + renfe qui cherchent des solutions et informent correctement.
Croisons les doigts pour trouver une correspondance correcte…
Et dormons dans le train car l’arrivée à Paris risque d’être très très nocturne

De la difficulté d’Etre et d’avoir été.
On a day in which the sky was a gray-yellow and the sun bright orange (from wild fires elsewhere in the state) our Summer of Slogging came to a close as the realtor’s "For Sale" sign went up and the key lock box was put at our door. We’ve traveled many miles on Memory Lane in recent weeks. One of those trips took me back to my East Viola childhood where my best buddy and I spent many summers in our playhouses. (Mine part of a woodshed and hers a renovated chicken coop/shed.) I’d kept two pieces of furniture from my playhouse — a table and cupboard — as a reminder of those daydream days. They’ve sat in our garage for years. Luckily they meant as much to my playhouse neighbor Mary Burke as they did for me. (She’s transformed them into beautiful pieces, given them a new life in her real home — and filled the cupboard with kohl’s memories). ❤️❤️
Because I needed a laugh after that bullshit this morning and I figured you might too, I give you this…
So, there are plenty of things that I can not do. For instance, I can’t tie my shoes the way they teach you in school, I can’t swim in any other way other than doggie paddling, I can’t successfully put on makeup without it being a major production, and I can’t walk in high heels. And those are just some of the things I can’t do. However, if you look at ALL of the things that I can not do, there is ONE thing that most definitely stands out above the rest every. damn. time. In fact, I am so bad at this one thing, it actually causes me anxiety if there’s a chance that the place I am going to will make me do it. (And yes, I have been known to turn down going to certain functions if I know I WILL have to do it and why I will never drive down to the city.)
So what is my big secret? My biggest CAN’T Do?
Y’all, I can’t parallel park a car to save my ever loving life. Like for real. And I’m not just talking about the fact that I can’t maneuver my car into a tight spot where someone is in front of me and behind me. I mean, I can’t even pull up to the curb and park on the street when the street is FREE OF OTHER CARS.
I am an embarrassment as an adult, I know. But whatever.
So here’s my story today. After the drama with my baby’s daddy :D, I get dressed and take myself to church (because Lord knows I needed a little Jesus in my life after all of that!), and to my dismay, all of their small parking lot was full and the only way I could go in was to park on the street. I’m not lying, y’all, I actually debated for a good 5 minutes on whether or not I should just go back home. But God spoke to me and told me to get my nicely shaped booty (shout out to squats!) into that church for some much needed healing, and like a good little girl, I listened. Luckily the street was mostly clear so I’d thought I’d done all right… except… I couldn’t figure out why my front end stuck out farther than my back end when my front was parked so close to the street. Well, whatever, I decided not to worry about it as I was already a few minutes late; however, when I came back outside I realized why: my rear right tire was completely and totally up on the curb as was half of my back end. To the point where if someone were walking on the sidewalk, they would have to step into the street and walk around my car because I had taken up so much damn room.
Oh, but that wasn’t bad enough. Oh, no. To make my humiliation EVEN MORE complete, there was a really cute gentlemen standing by my car laughing hysterically. I asked him if he’d like to take a picture of me and my car so he could have it whenever he needed a good laugh, but he was kindhearted enough to say boden.
“This is a long awaited reckoning. It must be. It’s sad that ‘codes of conduct’ have to be enforced to ensure we experience fundamental human decency and respect. Inclusion and representation are the answer. We’ve learned that the status quo perpetuates unfair, victimizing behavior to protect and perpetuate itself. Don’t allow this behavior to be normalized. Don’t compare wrongs or criminal acts by their degrees of severity. Don’t allow yourselves to be numb to the voices of victims coming forward. Don’t stop demanding our civil rights. I am grateful to anyone and everyone who speaks out against abuse and trauma they have suffered. You are breaking the silence. You are revolution.”

This post is for the people who wanted to know the whole truth, as well as for those people who criticized, insulted, misjudged and accused me,
WELCOME TO MY PROFILE!
Last Thursday, September 7, I decided to go to the dental clinic for the adjustment of my braces. When I reached the clinic, a lot of patients waiting in line and I get my number right away. I waited for almost 2 hours. So, theres this guy who will be the next patient before me, we did not know that this guy is an asset of NBI. He went inside, then the NBI officers came along together with the TV5 news team. None of us know what’s going on. Then the NBI officers get Doctor Novo peacefully. The reporter of TV5, Ms Faith del Mundo, asked all the patients to have an interview, but none of us wants. The camera man and the reporter looked at me and asked a favor if I can give a brief information about him. It is clear in the video that I first told them that the dentist is so kind and the patients like him too much and because of that, no one will ever think that he is not a real dentist. I’ve been in this clinic for almost 2 years. She asked me if I saw some changes or improvements in my teeth, I just told her the truth. Then after the interview, I asked her who reported him to the NBI and she told me the Philippine Dental Association. She never mention anyone. After that, I just went back home.
Now, for those people who’s accusing me for something I did not do, do you guys have a legal proof that the real complainant paid me to say such things? Am I the one who said he is a fake dentist? I did not even know that he don’t have a license and I will never go there if I know about it in the first place. I was just referred by someone that’s why I tried his clinic. Is it a crime for saying the truth? Did you know what you’re doing is CYBER-BULLYING which is considered a real CRIME already? And for your information, I am not the only one who experienced it. If you want, watch the video all over again until you understand what the NBI officer said that there’s a lot of complaint against him. I actually have nothing to explain, but since you already posted a wrong opinion and conclusion about me, I think it’s time to break my silence.
Let me clear again, I do not have any connection with the NBI, TV5, and the real complainants. To those who throw foul words against me without even knowing the truth, and cannot show any proof to anyone, you guys just show what kind of persons you are. I feel pity for your parents. I thank God for giving me a mother and a father who taught me how to STILL RESPECT people even if they didn’t respect you at all, and also, my alma matter who taught me how to handle UNEDUCATED PEOPLE. Now, if you are having a hard time understanding it, well then it’s not my concern anymore. Lol. Go ahead and make another conclusion until you feel satisfied, BUT make sure you have a LEGAL PROOF, and make sure you are ready to face all the consequences for all your OBNOXIOUS ACTIONS.
To those who know me well, especially my family, relatives and friends, as well as those who don’t know me at all but still understand me and this whole situation, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I just really hope this unpleasant issue will end soon.
