As far as I know, this is mostly true (although I never followed all the HSBC stuff). At very least, I don’t think, out of the million plus attorneys in the U.S. that Rosenstein could’a picked for Special Counsel, he couldn’t have picked one with more serious conflicts of interest than Robert Mueller.
“Insurge Intelligence writes about the report by the International Scientific Commission: “Written largely by the most prestigious British scientist of his day [Joseph Needham], this official report, containing hundreds of pages of evidence about the use of U.S. biological weapons during the Korean War, was effectively suppressed upon its original release in 1952. …
“The report provides compelling evidence of systematic violation of the laws of war against North Korea through the deployment of biological weapons — a critical context that is essential for anyone to understand the dynamics of current regional tensions, and what might be done about them.”
Sad that Risen has seemingly fallen into Rachel Maddow mode. It is not good journalism to hype Government officials’ claims especially when those claims serve to insanely gin up war with a nuclear superpower. Risen’s use of the term “treason” (which is predicated upon a state of war) played right into the warmongers’ playbook.
Sad truth! “The bloody horror in Florida that took seventeen lives is known to everyone in the USA but that same population is kept relatively ignorant of the bloody horror being perpetrated everyday in Yemen, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan and Palestine/Israel – to mention only the Middle East – by people using the armaments we sell them, when they’re not being used by our own military which we train to use our weapons to kill people; foreigners, until further notice…The guaranteed outcome of this demlib-repcon hissy fit form of politics is the continued economics of mass murder when what we need is a united confrontation with the minority power that needs to be replaced in order to save all and not just some of the future victims.
Until we do that suicides, mass murders, both foreign and domestic and further economic collapse, are not merely threatened, but assured.”
“Former JROTC cadets told The Associated Press that Cruz was a member of the small varsity marksmanship team that trained together after class and traveled to other area schools to compete.”
In other words, Nikolas Cruz was being trained to go kill people in Iraq, Afghanistan, or anywhere else in Asia, Africa, or Latin America. But the young man was just too impatient and began slaughtering people in his own neighbourhood.
Written habitually in a sedate and impartial prose, the PBS report covers a frightful fact: American high schools are all potential killing fields, where young children are trained as killers by the US army and funded in part by NRA. These are not divinely ordained, copycat acts reenacting any movie. This is the systematic militarisation of schools and colleges in the US.
What sick society would do anything like that? What insanity should overcome a people to turn a place of safety, sanity, and education into a training ground for killers? “
“And not to be overlooked, these mainstream media have done little if anything to protest the creeping Big Brother censorship programs now being assiduously promoted by government and private institutions in order to ferret out and ban “Russian disinformation,” something of which any American dissenter from the orthodox Russiagate narrative might be “guilty” entirely on his or her own. Indeed, leading media have abetted and legitimized these undemocratic undertakings by citing them as legitimate sources.”
“How does large scale evil happen?”; her answer, if distilled to its simplest form, is that evil is a result of a failure on our part to think.
I would just add that Arendt’s observations about the “banality of evil” and “group think” are confirmed by social psychology experiments, most notably Soloman Asch (line test); Stanley Milgram (electric voltage test) and Zimbardo’s (“us vs them” prison experiment). It’s relatively easy for “leaders” to bring out the worst in members of their groups–by pressing their emotional buttons (namely fear, hate, greed, false pride and blind loyalty. As Goring explained, “it works everytime.”
Long Long is performing tonight 3/15 at 8 pm with a group of awesome artists, Cindy Rehm, mouthertounge (Meital Yaniv & Kim Ye), and all the amazing Irish artists! Long Long will sing a mantra-song called “Bang Bang Bang Bang” in solidarity with all the students that walked out yesterday. #enough! #imwithyou!
While in line at a grocery, a guy wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat asked me, where you come from? I’m from here, I said. Where you originally come from, he retorted. You mean, original original? I asked. Yah, you idiot! He yelled. I came from a vagina, so do you! I answered, glaring him straight in his face. For a moment he looked like he was having a existential crisis right in front of me. I paid for my stuff and walked away. I just wish that every men in this world actualize this truth, they would be more respectful towards Womyn. And that there is no nationality other than our mother’s womb.
I am the worst storyteller. I goes back to childhood and lack of reading and communication with my parents. However I do know how powerful it is. Last night I went to storytelling lecture on social impact design at YBCA on this topic and realized why. The people who dominate the air waves in this profession are well educated and articulate. Parents read and talk to your children at an early age to build their capacity for communicating!
