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.”

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.
