Psyops 101: A brief history of fake news
by James Corbett BoilingFrogsPost.com October 31, 2012 The old adage that “Knowledge is power” has been apparent to warriors and would-be rulers throughout history. A well-known illustration from the annals of history revolves around Nathan Rothschild, the British representative of Meyer Amschel’s infamous Rothschild banking dynasty. At the Battle of Waterloo, Rothschild’s riders and messengers were able to get news of Napoleon’s defeat home to Nathan a full day in advance of the government’s own news carriers. As the story goes, Nathan was able to convince the public that he had in fact recei

Gary Johnson 2012: The Libertarian Revolution Will Not Be Televised
“The revolution will not be televised.” This phrase accurately describes the libertarian movement, as it continues to penetrate the American psyche in the forms of Ron Paul and Gary Johnson. Every day, a growing segment of the population, which is young, educated, and internet native, joins the ranks of the libertarians and their allies. And every day, the regime which currently controls the
Down to the wire . . .
— Elizabeth Warren, Democrat populist —“The Republican vision is clear — ‘I got mine. The rest of you are on your own.’ Republicans say they don’t believe in government. Sure, they do. They believe in government to help themselves and their powerful friends. After all, Mitt Romney is the guy who said corporations are people. No, Governor Romney, corporations are not people. “People have

Island of the Blue Dolphins open thread
by liberal japonicus It's not Friday, but a little early for everyone.  I don't know if anyone knows the book Island of the Blue Dolphins, but it was a book I remember reading as a kid. The book is based on a true story, and as it turns out, a researcher may have found the cave of the real life woman described in the story.

Close Calls
I have a special Halloween column up at Foreign Policy on various nuclear crisis, accidents and other near-catastrophes. As I said in the opening piece, I was struck at how much I remember correctly – but also how many things I didn’t know.  I am sure there will be a little error here or there, as well as some big omissions.  So, consider this an open invitation to swap nuclear horror stories.  
Neutron Letter Bombs
I was reading back issues of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists as part of a student-led effort on China’s development of the neutron bomb.  I was particularly struck by an article by Harold Agnew entitled, “A Primer on Enhanced Radiation Weapons.” Agnew’s article is a model of clarity.  It is marred only by the slightest hint of condescension. For example: “I fee confident that had the facts been

Are you a fucking horse?
The Thick of It has come to what seems likely to be the end.  For an ostensibly political comedy, its influence is difficult to overstate: it went in four series from satirising New Labour's spin machine to err, providing lines for the now in opposition Labour party to use against the government.  In Malcolm Tucker Armando Iannucci, the other writers, and of course Peter Capaldi have created o

Romney, Bain Create Own 47%

Scumney Is Worst Liar Ever To Win A Presidential Nomination
There have been many lies coming from Mitt Scumney's mouth during the course of this presidential campaign, but he's come to a point at which he's not the least bit artful about it. The latest mendacity is in an ad in the battleground state of Ohio, claiming that Jeep is outsourcing manufacturing jobs to China. (Recall that this is from a man who has made a fortune off outsourcing union jobs to pl

Swansong Earth: Refuges for Life
As we begin to identify planets in the habitable zone of their stars, the larger issue becomes what fraction of stars have such planets. This is eta-Earth (Ī·Earth), the percentage of Sun-like stars with Earth-like planets in the habitable zone, a figure we can gradually home in on as statistical surveys like Kepler continue to churn. Right now the estimate depends on whom you talk to, with figures

The Ice Man, Radioactive
When the Ice Man told Karl Rove, “I’m in,” he wasn’t fooling around. The Ice Man, Texan Harold Simmons, is one of the largest donors to the Republican Party. The Ice Man, who got his nickname for his merciless, cold-hearted tactics as a corporate raider, said he expects to give $36 million to Republican candidates in 2012. Add in what he’s giving Karl Rove’s Super PAC and it goes to over $50 mil
Romney Willing to Win Without Honor
Mitt Romney kept quiet last week when the subject was rape and God’s will.
