I have Ojibway blood.. mahalo, oxymoron for the beautiful photo. I'll have to show it to my sister

and son.

Is there a link?

Maybe he did and liked what he saw.. I just google him and got this..

"That Shamir ever gained access outraged many at WikiLeaks. Now Assange's dictator-admiring friend has surpassed himself"

Israel Shamir and Julian Assange's cult of machismo

Leaking, we are told, is a man's business. Israel Shamir, a strong supporter of Julian Assange, has penned an extraordinary piece in defence of the WikiLeaks founder as he awaits extradition to Sweden. The decision to extradite Assange for questioning in relation to alleged sexual offences against two women is, Shamir writes, "a defeat for all the men, and a defeat for mankind".

Assange's situation is not merely the consequence of one man's sexual liaisons, but part of a wider ploy to feminise men in order to make humanity more compliant to political elites. "Strong men are prone to rebellion, ready for sacrifice and primed for action," Shamir writes.

"It is no coincidence that the enemies of Empire are all masculine males, be they Gaddafi, Castro, Chávez, Lukashenko, Putin – or Julian Assange. It appears the men have been targeted for elimination; the working ants need no sex."

Strong men fight abuses of power, it seems, while women are, presumably, expected to support them from the kitchen – or in the bedroom.

If Shamir could be dismissed as merely a crank, his article might even be funny. But his influence over WikiLeaks and beyond is difficult to overestimate, and this relationship make his views more significant – and disturbing.


So Shamir.. thinks poor Julian is getting a raw deal.. like Gaddafi, Castro, Chávez, Lukashenko, Putin –

End quote from James Ball..

"Assange and Shamir may think their proclivity to judge people's worth by their testosterone level makes them alpha males, but others are far more likely to judge it makes them look like boys. It's time to grow up."

"According to Polyakov the idea to honour Putin with a monument arose a year ago when pro-Russian

forces, backed by Putin, seized the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine."

I thought the story they concocted was that they got the Crimea because "voting"?

This reads like the Onion!

Doctor Jack.. I'm so sorry for you! I wouldn't have stayed and withstood the torture..

but, your enforced reconnaissance is just what I thought it would be like. I have an ex-husband who is a fox "truther"(I heard from my son who makes him turn it off when he's around).. his father said.. "it's true" My son said "No, it's not." smh

You needed a hot shower and to be out in nature(by the ocean/in a forest/the woods/by a waterfall .. in order to get your mind back.
