Reading the Mueller Report (Not)!
It’s easy! It’s fun! It’s snarky! It’ll put you in jail (maybe)! A FB acquaintance who probably doesn’t want me to name him put forward the following: It should surprise nobody that it’s probably going to take a court fight to get the full Mueller report on Trump and Russia (among other crimes) out of […]
Waiting for next Wednesday
I hate to say this, but unless The Donald falls down and breaks a hip (he IS 70), he will win the presidency next Tuesday. The accumulated drip-drip-drip of bad news for Clinton has reached a point where she cannot pull enough independent voters to win. The re-opened FBI investigation (which seems to dove-tail with […]
Wikileaks drops an insurance file
Late yesterday, Wikileaks unlocked one of its ‘insurance’ files. These files are the items that were supposed to be toxic enough to make the US government hesitant to take ‘extra-legal’ means to stop Wikileaks from publishing. ‘Extra-legal’ is code for ‘wet jobs’–There was and continues to be concern that the US is about to assassinate Julian […]
Assange to be seized? Already dead?
Just up on the Internet–Ecuador is about to extradite Julian Assange to the US for his Wikileaks revelations about the Clinton campaign. My latest news (as of 12:30 NY time) is that Assange has threatened to take his own life rather than be arrested. It’s possible that he’s already dead–rumors are flying. Wikileaks has just […]
Clinton Wikileaks dump hits fan
Because we already have a totally hosed election season, Wikileaks made good on its threat to provide e-mail and other files ostensibly hacked from the Democratic National Committee regarding the Hillary Clinton campaign. In the end, over 20,000 emails were dumped including some 8,000+ attached files. Some show that the DNC was ALWAYS pushing for Clinton over […]
Sick of hearing about Hillary’s damn e-mails?
In earlier posts, I’ve lamented the fact that the US is up to its neck in conspiracy theories that may actually be factual. And I mostly believe that we’ll never get to the bottom of these as long as we have a status quo in a functioning government. That, like the dissolution of the German […]
TPP passes initial vote–why it should be stopped now
Prologue: I’m in a video. Did you know? Not the ones I’ve been in usually, but one made by my pal Monica Hunken (with cinematography and production work by Owen Crowley) about the TPP and it’s here: (if the video doesn’t play, you can always just follow the link to Youtube. If you […]
The symbol for our predicament
There have been many symbols and logos for climate change, global warming, and activism against environmental devastation. I’ve always been partial to the Earth FIRST! monkeywrench logo, personally. But how do you make a symbol that characterizes extinction? Some friends came up with this t-shirt design, which I hereby allow all of you to copy and […]
We interrupt this blog for an important bulletin…
Today, February 11, is a day of protest against unwarranted and illegal Government surveillance of the citizens of this country. I’ve blogged about this before, but what you need to know is that there is now an organized protest against the NSA surveillance revealed by Edward Snowden and others. It is also a protest against […]
Amnesty for Edward Snowden?
Note: I had begun this post back in mid-December. It has regained relevance with the recent NY Times and Guardian editorials calling for amnesty for Snowden. The Guardian might be acting out of altruism, but I wonder about the motives at the Times. Is this a big sea-change at the Grey Lady? Or are they sending some kind of message […]
