Everything Is About Something Different

leave a comment »



Here is the new online journal from First Look Media. A collaboration between Jeremy Scahill, Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, and Pierre Omidyar.

Welcome to The Intercept

We are very excited to welcome everyone to The Intercept, a publication of First Look Media (FLM). The Intercept, which the three of us created, is the first of what will be numerous digital magazines published by FLM. Read more

The opening article is: The NSA’s Secret Role in the U.S. Assassination Program

The National Security Agency is using complex analysis of electronic surveillance, rather than human intelligence, as the primary method to locate targets for lethal drone strikes – an unreliable tactic that results in the deaths of innocent or unidentified people. Read more

Glenn Greenwald: “*** no American, no matter your political affiliation or ideology, should accept the idea that the president of the United States has the power to order American citizens killed, not on a battlefield or anywhere else that is in a war zone, but simply on the suspicion that they intend to engage in future criminal behavior. To describe that power is to describe the most extremist and out-of-control government you can get.”


Words from Dylan Ratigan

020614_DRatigant-500x358Words from Dylan Ratigan that speak for themselves:

DR Facebook: The issue I have with modern political culture is no matter how righteous the cause or just the mission, all roads lead to a toxic swamp which swallows creativity, possibility, and the very souls of the people we need to lead us into the future.
Ann Akard The problem I see is we need a lot more women in power! They appear to be less corruptible!
DR Ms. Akard, I find identity politics, meaning politics based on gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other “identity” by its very definition to be divisive to communities large and small. If simply selecting the correct identity would solve any community’s problem, it would have been solved already. I believe it is the actual internal state of consciousness of people of all identities that is in need of elevation, collectively, rather than swapping one low-consciousness identity for another. [Emphasis Mine] [Source]

To understand what Dylan  is talking about, an elevated “consciousness identity” you need to read Arthur Silber’s insightful and relevant article: “The Forsaken Self, a Lie and a Fraud” – the difference between children and being an adult. Age is NOT the determining factor.

The World Loves Snowden

Black Agenda Report

Freedom Rider: Edward Snowden: Person of the Year

Wed, 12/18/2013 – 10:27 — Margaret Kimberley
Edward Snowden is vilified as a “traitor” by politicians of the American political duopoly, and hunted like Public Enemy Number One by the global imperial apparatus. However, for a large proportion of Earthlings, Snowden has made the singular contribution to humanity of the year 2013.

There is not very much democracy left in America, a country which endlessly brags about how democratic it is. Every now and again we are pleasantly surprised when the people and their interests are served instead of the 1% and their factotums in government. Those moments are few and far between but when they take place it is always because an individual decides to take on the system directly. In 2013 Edward Snowden was the person who risked his freedom to tell every human being with access to modern communications that they were under United States government surveillance.

Blogs that are Worth their Salt

It’s been a while since I posted on this blog. I’ve been re-stoking my boilers.

It’s also been a while since I posted any MacLeod Cartoons. When I checked his Facebook page ( I found the following quote. What this man says about political cartoons can easily be said about me and my Joe Blow Report.  Kudos to James MacLeod.

Sovereign Collapse

leave a comment »

032613_hands_off_cyprusAs the Republicans feverishly work to eliminate the last bastions of the American People’s investments, their homes, their pensions, their Social Security, Health Security-Medicare and Medicaid, they collude with the Democrats and the Independents to finish the looting.  Take away Social Security and Medicare and people will be forced to survive on what little value is left in the homes and property that has not already been devalued through the corrupt banking and money printing used to prop up the fraud.  So, what’s left? If Europe is a pre-cursor to what’s coming to America, they just outright steal it — all legal and justified.

Democracy Now’s interview with Richard Wolff, “A People’s Revolt in Cyprus: Richard Wolff on Protests Against EU Plan to Seize Bank Savings A People’s Revolt in Cyprus: Richard Wolff on Protests Against EU Plan to Seize Bank Savings” lays out what we can all expect in the near future and what people will need to do to try to protect their investments — MONEY.


President Barack Obama and The Oath of Office

leave a comment »

U.S President Barack Obama takes the oath of office from U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts as first lady Michelle Obama holds the bible and their daughters Malia and Sasha look on in the Blue Room of the White House in WashingtonOn Sunday January 20, 2013, I had the privilege of watching the “Official” swearing in, the making “Legal” the Presidency of one Barack H. Obama. He affirmed or swore this “Oath” before God and witnessed by all humanity – more importantly witnessed and shared with his wife and two daughter. To lend validity to the “Sacredness” of his oath is the fact that he placed one hand, his left hand, on the Sacred Book The Holy Bible. Here are the 37 words of his Oath:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Please note, what he swears a solemn and sacred oath before and, therefore, empowered by Almighty God to do:  “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” He does NOT swear to be “The Commander and Chief. Nor does he swear to put the protection of America and Americans FIRST. Neither does he “swear” that his first and only responsibility is to provide “jobs” for all Americans. No! His ONLY physically attested and committed obligation and responsibility as President of these United States is to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.”

History has already attested and testified to the facts and the absolute truth whether or not he has fulfilled his sworn, legally obligated duties as President of the United States. History has already determined whether or not his Oath of Office on Sunday, January 20, and again on January 21, 2013, was genuine or a lie. – [Picture Source]
