Erection Fraud

Erection Fraud

A precognitive fairy tale

In the far away kingdom of Bat Shit Crazy, two citizens sought to rule the land, Cranky Grandpa and the Dour Maid. They had a massive contest to see who was most loved by the people.

Grumpy Grandpa was much adored for his simple ways and his concern for the subjects of the realm. He came from a tiny hamlet but he inspired worlds of confidence throughout the kingdom, particularly among younger people known as the serfs. They knew that inside that grumpy exterior was a kind and warm heart and love for the people.

The Dour Maid with the surgically implanted smile would have none of this adoration of Grandpa. She needed no mirror to know the fairest of them all. Why itís the Dour Maid she and her supporters said again and again and again. This was the repeated story told by the town criers Ė Dour Maid is beloved by the world, a wise and generous woman. Surely said the town criers; Dour Maid will crush the Cranky one and his serfs.

As the people of Bat Shit Crazy began their endless cycles of elections for ruler, a strange thing happened. The subjects rebelled against the town criers and their universal message about the Dour Maid. They remembered the far away kingdoms the Maid tried to help and the sadness that befell those lands. They realized that the Maidís best friends were not the subjects but the wealthy bankers. They concluded that the facade erected for Dour Maid was a fraud.

As the Dour Maidís campaign based on erection fraud crumbled, the subjects of Bat Shit Crazy flocked to Grumpy Grandpa who brought peace and prosperity to the land.

The idea of prosecuting someone for revealing evidence of a crime has an odd ring to it. Revealing evidence of a crime is, in fact, criminal. Daniel Ellsberg

Being a patriot doesn't mean being obedient to authority. Oaths to authority are one of the most dangerous and corrosive things" If they expect us to stay silent , they shouldn't ask us to take the oath in the first place. " What we require, should encourage, are oaths to values. Edward Snowden

(New York City, Hope X Conference - 7/19) Daniel Ellsberg and Edward Snowden spoke to overflowing conference halls at the Hope X (Hackers On Planet Earth) conference in New York City today. Sponsored by 2600, the hacker's quarterly magazine, the hot topics at this tenth annual conference concerned freedom of the press and fighting government intrusion into the lives of digital activists and the rest of us.

"Vast Oceans of Water May be Trapped in Earth's Interior"

Discover Channel 3/16/2014

Researchers from Northwestern University and the University of New Mexico report evidence for potentially oceans worth of water deep beneath the United States. Though not in the familiar liquid form -- the ingredients for water are bound up in rock deep in the Earthís mantle -- the discovery may represent the planetís largest water reservoir.

Fasten your seat belts - Iran saving democracy in Iraq

When Tikrit fell, ISIL (also known as ISIS) threatened to march on Baghdad. That's when Iran made its presence known. By June 10, Iran Revolutionary Guard (IRG) units along with the elite Quds Force confronted ISIL in Tikrit. Iran's president, Hassan Rouhan i, announced, "We will combat violence, extremism and terrorism in the region and the world."

As the Iraqi Army fled the battle, Iranian forces challenged ISIL in Tikrit. Around the same time, the White House indicated that it was considering air strikes against ISIL. Reports by the Wall Street Journal indicate that Iran's effort in Tikrit turned the tide. In the meantime, Iraqi military forces are more engaged in defending their country.

Why does the US govt support attacks on civilians in Ukraine?

Why does the US govt support attacks on civilians in Ukraine?
By Michael Collins

Support by the United States government for Ukraine reached stunning levels of immorality with the clear endorsement of the Kiev government's attacks on civilians in the eastern part of that nation. Numerous reports (see below) in the world press indicate that the Kiev government is indiscriminately attacking the city of Slavyansk. That leaves no doubt that the Ukraine army and National Guard are attacking civilians.

In addition to the widespread news of attacks on Slavyansk, there are also on the scene reports of Ukraine bombardments of the following eastern Ukraine cities: Seemyovka, Slavyansk, Kromatorsk and Donetsk City.

This represents a high-risk path for the Obama administration and the new cold warriors in Congress. It's one thing to kill civilians in the context of seeking to overcome the latest evildoers. It's quite another to support a government led by an oligarch that orders attacks on entire cities with irregular troops drawn self identified Nazi sympathizers and the nation's regular forces.

Why would the administration take such a risk?
