…for that long, aimless stroll – and this time also for others not so lucky…
…we savour every moment…
…brainwashed writ large, that pavlovian thing…
The role of a teacher, an educator? And, yes, it is very worrying that normally educated, rational people should, in an instant, default to uncontrolled, almost lunatic, hysteria. The child, yes, fitting ‘that profile’, built a clock and ends up being handcuffed, jailed and, expected to be grateful that charges were not brought against him? Read the rest of this entry »
…appearance is not really substance, a hologram is not real, really…
So, in September 2015, a confession? RT would inform us, Ex-Nobel committee exec regrets Obama Peace Prize. Long-held suspicions about that Committee had been conclusively confirmed with that infamous award in 2009. As we now learn from a Damascene repentant, who has written a book, Read the rest of this entry »
…what must the very many sane usans be thinking?…
The steady drumbeat of fear mongering must have some effect on vulnerable, simple minds, and that can include teachers and security officials. Every day the public is informed of some dire plot disrupted just in time, in many cases active entrapment of gullible, credulous people who would normally go about their dreary, ordinary lives, if left undisturbed. But expendables are useful to demonstrate statistics of success. Or if it informed of some bombing of some fabricated enemy du jour, and in the process kill innocent women, children and men – with the ‘success’ breathlessly reported by the fearless, truth seeking corporate media.
Many recognise that the so-called ‘war on terror’ is and has been a racket, a money spinner for the fear mongers, political, corporate and military. And with an eagerly credulous population base, the gravy train only adds carriages as it rolls on.
Yes, what’s in a name? For that we have a sample of incisive reporting on the epitome of stupidity and cravenness. TeleSUR provides the news report, Texas Muslim Student Arrested for Clock Suspected to Be a Bomb. We learn, Read the rest of this entry »
…and by the hundreds of thousands, aside many drownings (and deaths in transit)…
As the ‘civilised world’ complains of refugees fleeing to European countries, it prefers not to ask why they are coming, and in such droves. Somehow the rest of the world already knows these answers. We sample reports on the trials and tribulations of people who are victims of whimsical destructiveness – a shredding of Sykes-Picot for a new order of utter chaos, of destroyed states and plundered resources, where ever possible.
AJE would give a report on yet another spate of drownings, after those of toddlers, Aylan and Galip, and their mother Rehan, that shook the world, even the instigating countries.
AJE reports, Refugees drown as boat capsizes off Greek island And this time the tragedy is even worse, but receives less coverage from the ‘legacy’ media of the countries directly responsible. Read the rest of this entry »
…forging on through the obfuscation and inaction, undaunted, despite the obviousness of the farce….
It seems like only like yesterday, May of this year, when the US DoJ really showed the world who is the boss of world justice, and winner of the World Cup of Justice.
Then along comes Prof Black who blows the whistle on the US DoJ. Red card. Indefinite suspension – from credibility, Now the DOJ Admits They Got it Wrong.
Incentives for further reading, as Prof Black observes,
The Obama administration and the Department have failed to take the most basic steps essential to prosecute elite bankers. They have not restored the “criminal referral coordinators” at the banking regulatory agencies and they have virtually ignored the whistleblowers who gave them cases against the top bankers on a platinum platter. The Department has not even trained its attorneys and the FBI to understand, detect, investigate, and prosecute the “accounting control frauds” that caused the financial crisis. The restoration of the rule of law that the new policy promises will not happen in more than a token number of cases against senior bankers until these basic steps are taken.
