Heading to DC for Peace Conference

Bruce K. Gagnon at Organizing Notes - 11 minutes ago
I leave very early in the morning for Washington DC to attend and speak at this peace conference being held at American University. I will talk about Ukraine and South Korea on Sunday at 10:00 am. On Monday morning there will be a protest at the Pentagon that I will join as well. You can see the conference schedule *here*

Palestine in America

*National Guard soldiers stand among protesters during another night of protests over the police shooting of Keith Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina, Sept. 22, 2016. * It happens practically every day now. Cops shoot another black person down in the streets of America. It's a war on the poor - the unwanted, the superfluous populations. I've long asked - after all the wars and killing of innocent people around the world by the US, what makes you think we here in America are so special that they won't at some point do the same to us? Well it is happening now - and first they co... more »

Different View on the Syria War

Bruce K. Gagnon at Organizing Notes - 11 minutes ago
US Peace Council organized a fact-finding trip to Syria. When they returned they held a news conference in order to confront a hostile American media that continues to lie and distort the reality of Syria. Have we not yet learned how the US imperial modus operandi really works? Washington demonizes a particular country leader, starts a war in a that country (Panama, Yugoslavia, Iraq Libya, Syria), sabotages peace efforts, turns the place into a mess killing legions of innocent people after claiming the leader of that country is killing innocent people! Here is a different view. ... more »

The Wider World of 1889

Daniel Stack at 19th Level - 39 minutes ago
One thing I'd like to do in my Penny Dreadful Cthulhu game (i.e. Pulp Cthulhu by Gaslight) is be a bit more cosmopolitan than my previous exploration of the era. That doesn't necessarily mean even leaving London (though I plan on having the characters do so). I keep thinking of a scene in *From Hell *when early on in the investigation Inspector Abberline investigates the possibility that the murder (only one at this point) was done by one of Buffalo Bill's "red Indians". As it turns out Bill is off in Paris at the time, with "Mexico Joe" doing a variant show. I just like the remi... more »

Radioactive Water Contamination and the Socialization of Risk

Majia's Blog at Majia's Blog - 1 hour ago
My academic research looks at catastrophic risks encoded into modern infrastructures and examines the governance strategies that frame and manage these risks, particularly in relation to economic, social, and environmental welfare. I'm currently working on a short essay examining how risk was socialized and privatized in the wake of the Fukushima crisis. Here are some excerpts (NOTE: these are "in-the-rough"): SOCIALIZATION OF RISK Economists George Akerlof, Paul Romer, Robert Hall, and Greggory Mankiw[i] helped formulate contemporary understandings of how organizations can privat... more »

The Evidence Farm

jurassicpork at Welcome Back to Pottersville - 2 hours ago
North Carolina is famous for its agriculture, growing staples of American life such as tobacco, cotton and produce. But North Carolina's number one crop, for which there is no particular season to plant, is manufactured evidence. Yes, that's right. Your intrepid one had actually caught North Carolina police officers planting evidence next to Keith L. Scott's dead body not once but twice, within 10 seconds of each other. Don't listen to the racist assholes out there who claim the second object was just a glove or that the brave white cops were merely protecting and helpful... more »

Unless the entirely unexpected happens - not a first for 2016 - Jeremy Corbyn is set to be reconfirmed as Labour leader tomorrow morning. As that announcement is made, a section of the party will plunge into abject despair. Some shall leave (though I hope most stay), and others must have a serious think about what they do in the party now. Just like the left has done for the majority of Labour's history, in fact. For the most visible wing of our party's establishment Jez-sceptics, the Parliamentary Labour Party, this casting about for purpose and direction is set to play out public... more »

"Do You Know Who Killed My Baby?"

William N. Grigg at Pro Libertate - 2 hours ago
“Do you know who killed my baby?” That anguished question was wrested from the anguished soul of Carol Dodge as she spoke with a young girl named Destiny Osborne shortly after Carol’s 18-year-old daughter Angie was murdered in Idaho Falls in June, 1996. With the police unable to identify any viable suspects, Carol – driven by an irrepressible maternal impulse to find and punish the person who had killed her daughter – pursued her own investigation. Over the past twenty years she has accumulated a library of evidence, most of which has been ignored by the police and the Bonnevil... more »

Chip Evans, The Progressive Democrat In Northern Nevada Who Understands Why The Time To Deal With Climate Change Is Right Now

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 2 hours ago
The Nevada caucuses this year were fraught with the kind of ugly partisan corruption anyone who understands Harry Reid would have predicted. Whether you want to admit that Reid and his machine stole the process for Hillary or not, it was still clear that Bernie won the sprawling 2nd congressional district, basically all of northern Nevada. Most of the voters live in Washoe County, which Bernie took 54.2-45.7%. He also won Carson City and took Lander County 69.6-29.0% and Eureka County 86.4-13.6%, margins too massive even for the Reid machine to turn around. The enthusiasm for Ber... more »

Obama Vetoes Bill Allowing Victims To Sue Saudi Arabia For 9/11

Sean Adl-Tabatabai at Your News Wire - 4 hours ago
President Barack Obama vetoed legislation on Friday that would have allowed the families of the victims of the 9/11 attacks to seek justice and sue Saudi Arabia for orchestrating the attacks. Despite overwhelming public support, The White House strongly opposed the legislation, known as the “Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act” (JASTA). The bill was passed unanimously by both the House and Senate, and would have given families the chance to hold authorities in Saudi Arabia accountable for their part in sponsoring the September 11 attacks.

Over 30,000 scientists say 'Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warming' is a complete hoax and science lie

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 4 hours ago
This is the correct way to answer the 97 percent nonsense. The hard reality is that even fully engaged scientists are at best uncommitted and should be! Worse, the evidence of the past eighteen years has been amazingly neutral after the brief peak that occurred in 1998. However it has been neutral but warmed up which provides a shifted range of temperature variation or should. Thus we have had a better climate for twenty years. I have good reason to expect a downward shift in the next two decades as against a further upward shift. In fact, were i a betting man i would give... more »

Self Driving will have issues for some time in terms of the private automobile. Most of those will not exist in the agricultural setting. The speed is naturally slow and you are interested in repetition which is not as easy on the open road. Much more significant, this technology allows for small machines which are potentially very valuable to the farm. Such machines allow for small densely cropped fields and narrow strips holding trees and fruit shrubs creating a vastly more productive biome.

Why a Trump Victory in November is a Virtual Certainty

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 4 hours ago
I strongly recommend this analysis. I have made many successful calls based on paying attention to the popular vote instead of the enthusiasms of newspapermen. Here we see that the popular vote has shifted to Trump as a result of his no holds barred battle to drive the pretenders from the ring. Remember we are merely asking two folks out of every one hundred to switch. That is not much at all. And it is now the strategic end game. Trump will now easily campaign as a robust centralist Democrat as that is what he has always been. After all the Republican party is going nowhe... more »

“There is a legend about a bird which sings just once in its life, more sweetly than any other creature on the face of the earth.

And, dying, it rises above its own agony to out-carol the lark and the nightingale. One superlative song, existence the price. But the whole world stills to listen, and God in His heaven smiles.

Disturbing footage of the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina was released by his family on Friday.

12 Reasons Why Millennials Hate Hillary Clinton

With Hillary Clinton puzzled why she isn’t “50 points ahead” of Trump, and even more confused why her polling numbers with 18-29-year-olds are plateauing at rock bottom, perhaps a reminder of why she is viewed as a toxic brand by millennials is in order. The biggest reason millennials dislike Hillary is not because they are uninformed, it’s because they are very informed. Unlike the older generations, they do not get all of their information from the corrupt mainstream media outlets. Millennials grew up with the internet.

"How is one to live a moral and compassionate existence when one is fully aware of the blood, the horror inherent in life, when one finds darkness not only in one's culture but within oneself? If there is a stage at which an individual life becomes truly adult, it must be when one grasps the irony in its unfolding and accepts responsibility for a life lived in the midst of such paradox. One must live in the middle of contradiction, because if all contradiction were eliminated at once life would collapse. There are simply no answers to some of the great pressing questions.

Most of the mass shootings in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and it’s not the weapons used.

The U.S. reportedly bombed a known Syrian military position five days into the cease fire and killed at least 83 Syrian soldiers and wounded more than 100.
