2015 Spring Forward! We totally missed last week! We were busy getting ready for WRUW's Live From Cleveland's FIRST EVER LIVE REMOTE BROADCAST endeavor, a new station fundraiser we're calling "Live From Lakewood!" (like us on da facebuuk when ya click over). Last Saturday we scoped out the club and nailed down details like where we will set up, check the internet connection, how we interface with the house sound to send audio back to the station and more logistical details. Then we reconvened in Studio B on Sunday to cut our promo spot (amazing how a 1:30 spot can take 3 hours to produce!). The show will air LIVE on the 'net on WRUW.org/listen-live and on the FIFTEEN THOUSAND WATT WRUW-FM 91.1 radio in Cleveland on THURSDAY April 2nd from 8 pm et until 1 am et! Yours Truly will be engineering and producing the entire broadcast and even doing some interviews on-air too! See the station's events page "Live from Cleveland Presents: Live from Lakewood!" for more info! Mark yer calendars and tune in! Let's see if we can crash the WURW streaming server! haha! MEANWHILE IN the Wide Wide World of National and International News we're working on lots of STUFF from the last two weeks and we'll post more later today. In the meantime we've compiled stories from all our regulars for you to sift through plus this week's guests on the corporomedia's Sunday Talkies for you to throw bricks at! Feel free to comment below with your stories of corporate/government malfeasance and media manipulation of the masses! Tell yer peeps! And don't forget our side board with nuggets like The Rude Pundit's Tom Cotton Pleasures Himself in Front of the Senate! ...... Still silent, some would later say disturbingly so, he took the dildo, held it up for all to see, and then, with one hand, he inserted it into his asshole. The only indication on his face that he was pushing a hard plastic phallus into his sphincter was a determined stare and a couple of sudden intakes of air. Then he started his speech, one hand on the mic, the other manipulating the dildo, in, out, a twist every now and then. ..... You got that, right? Tom Cotton, the author of the letter from 47 GOP senators telling Iran not to trust the president on a deal to give up nuclear arms, is worried that the words of the president and his aides might have negative influence on Israel. No, wait. On Netanyahu. Because you can sure as hell bet that had the Zionist Union and Isaac Herzog had won, Cotton wouldn't have said a goddamned word. Cotton concluded with threats to the United Nations should it say mean things to Israel, too. And, without a hint of shame, his jizz on the ground in front of him, the dildo being moved slowly, delicately, even......... He went silent again and removed the dildo from his anus, pulling up his pants after. He took out an anti-bacterial cloth and wiped it down before carefully placing it back in the velvet and shutting the case. As he walked away, Lindsey Graham was heard telling an aide, "Find out where I can get one of those Bibi penises." Happy Sunday and Happy Spring to one and all! Check back later today for more news, comment and outrage!

WISCONSIN RIGHT TO WORK FOR LESS: Sarah Jaffe at Salon.com explains how Scott Walker pushes through “right-to-work” law — and labor takes another hit In Madison, "right-to-work" protesters joined Black Lives Matter youth to take on Walker and a new police killing .............. As Jennifer Epps-Addison of Wisconsin Jobs Now tells Salon, “This generational poverty that is being inflicted, particularly on the black community in Milwaukee, is a form of state violence that desensitizes the rest of the Wisconsin community to these killings, and makes the rest of our state see a justification in these police murders.” And what we now call “right-to-work” laws were spread in part by racist rhetoric that exploited already-existing divisions in order to pass laws that took rights away from all working people. ...................... These laws are designed to defund unions, pure and simple. They don’t make organizing impossible — the history of the Culinary Workers, UNITE HERE Local 226 in Nevada, attests to that. But they drain the coffers of unions, limiting their ability to do other political work or engage in organizing workers who don’t yet have a union. The fact that we refer to these laws as “right-to-work” is one of the most successful branding operations the right has ever run, and labor has struggled to come up with an answer for it. Yet for years these laws were mostly limited to the South and Southwest, where race-baiting (and Red-baiting) had helped them succeed. Before they were “right-to-work” laws, the name was, if possible, even more Orwellian: “The American Plan,” as Mark Ames notes, not so subtly aligning unions with things un-American, Communist and not white. (Think of people shouting about Obama’s birth certificate, and you’ll get the gist.) But “right-to-work” was the name that stuck, giving a rights-conscious, progressive-sounding name to a bill sold with virulently racist campaigns that promised to uphold “the color line.” ...................... The movement, though, continues. On Wednesday, March 11, as part of a national “We Rise” day of action that is slated to include more than 20 events in 16 states, Wisconsin workers and their supporters, organized by groups including the Young, Gifted and Black Coalition, Ferguson to Madison, Youth Empowered in the Struggle, and Wisconsin Jobs Now, will come together to draw connections between attacks on union rights, growing poverty, mass incarceration and state violence. Jennifer Epps-Addison explains,
    “This action was planned before the murder of Tony Robinson. The real goal for the action was to lift up the voices of young people, of people of color, of nonunion workers in this movement for economic and racial justice, particularly in light of right to work and the impact of right to work on those communities.”
The death of Tony Robinson has reminded Madison that even liberal cities are built on a history of segregation and denial of rights to their black residents. Wisconsin, Epps-Addison notes, has the highest incarceration rate for black men in the entire country. And, she points out, the systemic divestment from schools and services in communities of color is itself a form of state violence. That’s why Wednesday’s event, she emphasizes, will not just be a rally. It will include direct actions targeting employers engaged in wage theft and demanding the immediate release of people who are incarcerated simply because they cannot afford to pay fines. “Our march really is on both, on the institutions that perpetuate these systemic problems, the corporations that benefit from them, and Governor Walker himself,” she says..........

At LiveScience.com staff writer Tanya Lewis explains how Florida Isn't the Only State to 'Ban' Climate Change Florida, one of the states most susceptible to the effects of climate change and sea-level rise, verbally banned state environmental officials from using the term "climate change," an investigation revealed. But the Sunshine State isn't the only U.S. state that has attempted to "outlaw" climate science. North Carolina, Louisiana and Tennessee have all passed laws that attempt to cast doubt on established climate science in boardrooms and classrooms. The reality of climate change due to human activity has been widely accepted by climate scientists, and some experts worry that attempts to deny the science could prevent states from preparing for sea level rise, extreme weather and other effects of a warming planet. [6 Politicians Who Got the Science Wrong]
In an investigation published yesterday (March 8), the Florida Center for Investigative Reporting (FCIR) found evidence of an unwritten policy that banned officials at the state's Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) from using specific terms related to climate change in official communications, emails or reports. "We were instructed by our regional administrator that we were no longer allowed to use the terms 'global warming' or 'climate change,' or even 'sea-level rise,'" Kristina Trotta, a former DEP employee who worked in Miami, told the FCIR. "Sea-level rise was to be referred to as 'nuisance flooding,'" Trotta added. .................... But long before Florida unofficially banned these climate-related terms, other states passed laws attempting to limit the influence of climate change on land policies and education...........

The Brick TeeVee Crew is sad to report Abby Martin Leaving RT, “Breaking The Set” .............. Abby concludes the final episode by explaining why BTS has been such an important part of her life and why we should never stop Breaking the Set.
    Never Stop Breaking the Set: RT has given me opportunities I will be eternally thankful for and hosting Breaking the Set has been the best and most invaluable experience of my life. I never imagined the kind of support the show would generate, proving how many people are hungry for raw truth and systemic change. Throughout the course of the show, I’m most proud of the stories we’ve done on the road – Pine Ridge, Detroit, Gulf Coast, Guantanamo Bay and soon to be released Cuba. As such, after almost three years of reporting from the studio I’ve decided to focus on investigative field reporting. Please note I’m not stopping or going anywhere. If I can’t find a network to host my new show vision with the same editorial freedom, I will turn to crowdsourcing. And until I establish my next venture I’ll be writing daily, producing video shorts, podcasting and doing talks around the world. Please follow me on facebook, youtube and twitter to stay tuned to my next move. I’m excited to put all my heart into the last two weeks of the show and celebrate a great run, all of which wouldn’t have been possible without you. Much love and appreciation to everyone for supporting me and my future endeavors. Never stop Breaking the Set. -Abby

SHOCKING "NEWS": The Nation's Bill Greider proclaims now It’s Official: The Pentagon Finally Admitted That Israel Has Nuclear Weapons, Too
YES for all these DECADES Israel has NOT joined The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, commonly known as the Non-Proliferation Treaty or NPT for the SOLE REASON that THEY HAD NO NUKES! So that means no U.N. nuclear inspections are needed, RIGHT? Yet Israel is continually bashing on the nuclear program run by IRAN who IS a member of the NTP and HAS HAD U.N. Inspectors in-country for years to monitor their PEACEFUL use of nuclear materials. Consider Iran is SURROUNDED by NUKES from Israel, India and Pakistan and have consistantly declared nuclear weapons as a ‘great sin’. And Israel has been predicting "Iran will have nuclear capability within months" FOR YEARS people! WHAT ARE THE CHANCES Israel will now allow U.N. Nuclear Weapons Inspectors in to monitor THEIR nuclear stockpile? Eh? The same way the U.N. did in 2003 in IRAQ before Dim Son ordered them out after they found NOTHING despite Condosleeza's "mushroon cloud"? Or join the NTP? EH?

At CommonDreams.org Sarah Lazare tells us a federal Judge Orders US Government to Stop Suppressing Evidence of Torture and Abuse Ruling on Friday is latest development in years-long legal battle, in which the ACLU has argued the photos 'are crucial to the public record' – A federal judge on Friday ordered the U.S. government to release more than 2,000 photographs showing abuse and torture of people detained by the American military in Iraq and Afghanistan. .............Many of the concealed photographs were taken by U.S. military service members and collected during more than 200 military investigations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some could be on par with, or worse than, those released from Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. U.S. district judge Alvin Hellerstein ruled (pdf) that the government "is required to disclose each and all of the photographs" in response to a Freedom of Information Act Request from the ACLU. In the order, Hellerstein argued that the government did not adequately prove that "disclosure would endanger Americans." The decision gives the Solicitor General two months to decide whether to appeal. The ACLU has pressed for the release of records relating to torture and extrajudicial killings of prisoners in U.S. custody around the world since 2003. The administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama have vigorously fought to keep these photographs suppressed, and in 2009, the White House collaborated with Congress to secretly change FOIA law to enable the concealment of the images, arguing it is necessary to protect national security................... SATURDAY pi day! piday.org Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “pi”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. 5 Trillion Digits of Pi - New World Record By Alexander J. Yee & Shigeru Kondo (Last updated: February 23, 2013) Pushing the limits of personal computing... How much further can we go?
    For anyone who is interested, this was recently the topic of a Stack Overflow question that I answered. October 17, 2011: The record has been improved to 10 trillion digits. This is a followup to our previous announcement of our computation of 5 trillion digits of Pi. This article details some of the methods that were used for the computation as well as the hardware and the full timeline of the computation. Some of you knew this was coming... It was just a matter of when. (and how many digits) Although we were very quiet about this computation while it was running, anyone who followed my website or my XtremeSystems thread between February and May would have easily guessed that we were attempting a world record. . . . . . . . . .

Reporting from TechDirt.com's BOOM! dept Editor Mike Masnick is all over Wikimedia Sues NSA Over Its Mass Surveillance Program This is big news. Wikimedia Foundation, the organization behind Wikipedia, has announced that it is suing the NSA (with help from the ACLU) over its mass surveillance program. While the full lawsuit hasn't yet been posted, the lawsuit targets the "upstream" collection under Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act. Because this gets confusing if you're not spending a lot of time with this, let's break out some of the different surveillance programs:
  • Section 215 of the PATRIOT Act: Under this program the NSA is collecting all the phone metadata on calls in the US.
  • Executive Order 12333: This is what enables the NSA to hack into pretty much anything overseas -- including things like Google, Yahoo and Microsoft's data centers.
  • PRISM: Actually part of Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act. Allows for (slightly) targeted collections of information via a court order from the FISA Court, demanding specific types of information (rather than "all" information).
  • Upstream collection: Also under Section 702, but this is the program that lets the NSA tap into backbone fiber optic cables, such as from AT&T and others, and slurp up all traffic in case there's anything "interesting" happening that it can classify as "foreign intelligence information."
It's the upstream collection that Wikimedia is challenging in this lawsuit, arguing (among other things) that it violates both the First and Fourth Amendments. That upstream program is the one that was first disclosed by Mark Klein, a former AT&T technician who wandered into the EFF's offices a decade ago with the evidence. This resulted in a lawsuit -- Hepting v. AT&T -- that AT&T was able to get out of thanks to Congress passing a law granting the telcos retroactive immunity for helping the NSA. The EFF has a long-running similar case against the NSA over the upstream collection -- Jewel v. NSA -- which recently suffered a setback, in that the judges claimed there wasn't evidence for "standing." That is, the plaintiffs need to be able to prove that they were spied on -- which is a fairly tough barrier. ......................... Wikimedia thinks that it has a chance to get past this "standing" hurdle, thanks to the following NSA slide that was leaked in the Ed Snowden revelations:
Click over to Techdirt for the rest! Incredible! And like Masnick says This is big news. But wait! there's more! Glyn Moody from the confession-time dept finds UK Government Admits Intelligence Services Allowed To Break Into Any System, Anywhere, For Any Reason Recently, Techdirt noted that the FBI may soon have permission to break into computers anywhere on the planet. It will come as no surprise to learn that the US's partner in crime, the UK, granted similar powers to its own intelligence services some time back. What's more unexpected is that it has now publicly said as much, as Privacy International explains: The British Government has admitted its intelligence services have the broad power to hack into personal phones, computers, and communications networks, and claims they are legally justifed to hack anyone, anywhere in the world, even if the target is not a threat to national security nor suspected of any crime. That important admission was made in what the UK government calls its "Open Response" to court cases started last year against GCHQ. Here's what it reveals, according to Privacy International: Buried deep within the document, Government lawyers claim that while the intelligence services require authorisation to hack into the computer and mobile phones of "intelligence targets", GCHQ is equally permitted to break into computers anywhere in the world even if they are not connected to a crime or a threat to national security.............. Don't you feel safer already? NEXT comes Karl Bode from the nontransparent-puppeteering dept who finds Congressional Opponents Of Net Neutrality Try To Shame FCC Boss For Standing Up To ISPs Now that our shiny new net neutrality rules are on the sixty-day march toward formal approval, there's of course only two real ways neutrality opponents can overturn them: either a lawsuit or a 2016 party change. Since they're legislatively impotent on the matter for the time being, net neutrality opponents in Congress have decided the next best thing is to publicly shame FCC boss Tom Wheeler -- for literally weeks on end. As such, Wheeler faces at least five hearings over the next two weeks all with one goal: publicly punishing him for standing up to giant ISPs and supporting net neutrality. The primary talking point being used against Wheeler is that he was "improperly" influenced by the White House. .................. Still, this week's hearing and "fact finding mission" before the House Oversight Committee (again, the first of five over the next few weeks) focused almost entirely on transparency, and how the White House somehow bullied an independent agency into approving tougher net neutrality rules. In Wheeler's testimony (pdf), he again denies he was pressured, stating that he only came to embrace Title II after countless legal experts made it clear it was the most legally defensible platform for the rules to stand on............... Of course, this doesn't help propagate the narrative that Obama is forcing the FCC to destroy the Internet because he's the devil and hates jobs. As such, Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz handed out a packet of e-mails (pdf) to hearing attendees he claimed indisputably prove undue White House influence on the FCC. Except if you bother to actually read them, they don't actually show anything of the sort........ Go there for all the evidence of GOPher shinanigans! BTV HOMEWORK! Go to OpenSecrets.org and dig through their databases to find out just HOW MUCH COIN the Telecom Industry is buying of donating to said GOPhers on these committees to derail any net-neutrality rules and laws! REPORT YER FINDINGS HERE NEXT WEEK! MEANWHILE Jeremy Kirk at Network World finds out To avoid NSA, Cisco gear gets delivered to strange addresses ......... And it appears some Cisco Systems customers have since taken steps to prevent NSA tampering. The company has shipped equipment to addresses that are unrelated to a customer, said John Stewart, Cisco’s chief security and trust officer, on Wednesday during a panel session at the Cisco Live conference in Melbourne. In theory, that makes it harder for the NSA to target an individual company and scoop up their package. But supply chains are tough to secure, Stewart said, and once a piece of equipment is handed from Cisco to DHL or FedEx, it’s gone. Still, the risk of such tampering is pretty low for most customers. Cisco has been working on better ways for customers to verify the integrity of the systems it ships, but there will always be certain amount of risk that can’t be mitigated, Stewart said. “If a truly dedicated team is coming after you, and they’re coming after you for a very long period of time, then the probability of them succeeding at least once does go up,” Stewart said. “And its because they’ve got patience, they’ve got capacity and more often than not, they’ve got capability.” One of the leaked Snowden documents, dated June 2010, has two photos of an NSA interdiction operation, with a box that said Cisco on the side. The document, labeled top secret, goes on to say that supply-chain interdiction operations “are some of the most productive operations in TAO, because they pre-position access points into hard target networks around the world.” In May 2014, Cisco CEO John Chambers sent a letter to President Barack Obama, arguing that the NSA’s alleged actions undermine trust with its customers and more broadly hurt the U.S. technology industry. Cisco also asserted that it does not work with any government to intentionally weaken its products. ............ inuddawoids that is.... yernotreallyparanoidiftheyreallyareouttagetcha. Reuters via HuffPoAOL Jeff Mason and Roberta Rampton report Obama Declares Venezuela A Threat To U.S. National Security WASHINGTON, March 9 (Reuters) - The United States declared Venezuela a national security threat on Monday and ordered sanctions against seven officials from the oil-rich country in the worst bilateral diplomatic dispute since socialist President Nicolas Maduro took office in 2013. U.S. President Barack Obama signed and issued the executive order, which senior administration officials said did not target Venezuela's energy sector or broader economy. But the move stokes tensions between Washington and Caracas just as U.S. relations with Cuba, a longtime U.S. foe in Latin America and key ally to Venezuela, are set to be normalized. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro denounced the sanctions as an attempt to topple his government. At the end of a thundering two-hour speech, Maduro said he would seek decree powers to counter the "imperialist" threat, and appointed one of the sanctioned officials as the new interior minister. Declaring any country a threat to national security is the first step in starting a U.S. sanctions program. The same process has been followed with countries such as Iran and Syria, U.S. officials said. ................ Venezuela called home its charge d'affaires in Washington for consultations, and Maduro accused Obama of a "colossal mistake" and "imperialist arrogance" similar to his predecessors Richard Nixon and George W. Bush. "President Barack Obama ... has personally decided to take on the task of defeating my government and intervening in Venezuela to control it," Maduro said in a televised address........... At DN! Is Venezuela Really an "Extraordinary Threat"? U.S. Sanctions Top Officials as Tensions Grow featuring Miguel Tinker Salas, professor at Pomona College and author of the forthcoming book, "Venezuela: What Everyone Needs to Know" including this exchange:
  • REPORTER: President Maduro last night went on the air and said that they had arrested multiple people who were allegedly behind a coup that was backed by the United States. What is your response?
  • JEN PSAKI: These latest accusations, like all previous such accusations, are ludicrous. As a matter of long-standing policy, the United States does not support political transitions by nonconstitutional means........
  • MATT LEE: Sorry. The U.S. has—whoa, whoa, whoa—the U.S. has a long-standing practice of not promoting—what did you say? How long-standing is that? I would—in particular in South and Latin America, that is not a long-standing practice.
  • JEN PSAKI: Well, my point here, Matt, without getting into history —is that we do not support, we have no involvement with, and these are ludicrous accusations.
  • REPORTER: Recently in Kiev, whatever we say about Ukraine, whatever, the change of government in the beginning of last year was unconstitutional, and yet you supported it. The Constitution was not—
  • JEN PSAKI: That is also ludicrous.
MIGUEL TINKER SALAS: I would have loved if that kind of exchange would have got broader diffusion in the U.S. press, but the fact is that it hasn’t. And we continue to have the belief that the U.S. does not—is not involved in unconstitutional change in Latin America. And as a historian, the record speaks just the opposite, from ’53 in Guatemala to the Dominican Republic, to Chile in ’73, and through the support of the Argentine military dictatorships and Brazil, and, if we want to go even closer, to 2002 in Venezuela, when the U.S. actually did support a coup against the democratically elected Hugo Chávez, the shortest coup in the world, and the coup that brought Chávez back to power, and then again in Honduras in 2009, and, not shortly thereafter, in Paraguay with Lugo, where they said it was a democratic transition, when in fact it was an unconstitutional shift in power. So, again, the notion that the U.S. has not supported both military coups directly or through what they call soft power is really ludicrous. And, in fact, we should turn the question around. If they want to support democracy, I think the best thing the U.S. can do in the case of Venezuela and other countries is to pull back and let things develop on their own.......
Agreed! The absolute arrogance and hubris of this U.S. State Department spokesperson is astonishing. It is a well-known and established fact the U.S. through its CIA and USAID operatives and others have undermined governments all around the world, most recently in Ukraine last year (see ConsortiumNews.com Neocons and the Ukraine Coup and also TRUTHDIG A/V BOOTH Vladimir Putin Not Responsible for Ukrainian Civil War, Expert Says Through a careful review of recent history, Russia and Soviet scholar Paul Robinson debunks the claim that the Russian president is directing the rebels fighting in Ukraine’s eastern region. ), in Honduras in 2009 (see Workers World Manuel Zelaya to return to Honduras) and the failed coup in Venezuela in 2002 (see The Guardian Venezuela coup linked to Bush team. How stupid does Jen Psaki think we all are? Peter Maass at The Intercept tells us After Petraeus Plea Deal, Lawyer Demands Release of Stephen Kim The lawyer for imprisoned leaker Stephen Kim has asked the Department of Justice to immediately release him from jail, accusing the government of a “profound double standard” in its treatment of leakers following a comparatively lenient plea deal for former Gen. David Petraeus. Petraeus avoided prison time for disclosing a trove of classified information to his lover and lying to the FBI about it. Kim, meanwhile, was sentenced to 13 months in prison for violating the Espionage Act by talking to a Fox News reporter about a single classified report on North Korea. ........................ Kim’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, noted in a scathing letter to the DOJ that Petraeus, in his plea deal, admitted leaking a range of highly sensitive material “at least as serious and damaging to national security as anything involved in Mr. Kim’s case” to Paula Broadwell, his lover and authorized biographer. Petraeus also acknowledged that when he was director of the CIA he lied to the FBI about leaking to Broadwell, as well as about keeping classified information at his home. Yet while Kim, a former State Department official, was prosecuted under a draconian law against leaking — even though he merely discussed a single document that a government official later described in court filings as a “nothing burger” — Petraeus was allowed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor offense of mishandling classified information, and he was not charged at all for the felony of lying to the FBI. Under the deal, he is expected to be placed on probation for two years and pay a fine of $40,000. “The decision to permit General Petraeus to plead guilty to a misdemeanor demonstrates more clearly than ever the profound double standard that applies when prosecuting so-called ‘leakers’ and those accused of disclosing classified information for their own purposes,” Lowell wrote in his two-page letter, which was dated March 6, just three days after the Petraeus plea deal was announced. “As we said at the time of Mr. Kim’s sentencing, lower-level employees like Mr. Kim are prosecuted under the Espionage Act because they are easy targets and lack the resources and political connections to fight back. High-level officials (such as General Petraeus and, earlier, Leon Panetta), leak classified information to forward their own agendas (or to impress their mistresses) with virtual impunity.” ............... EDITOR OF BUZZFLASH AT TRUTHOUT MARK KARLIN nails Koch Brothers' greenwashing activities! Koch Brothers Are Endangering the Planet by Funding Climate Change Denial .............. Notice how the Koch Brothers attorney stresses "first amendment rights" for Koch Industries. This claim of corporate personhood echoes the plutocratic majority opinion in Citizens United: the opinion that companies have the same rights as individuals in elections. Only in this case, the notion of businesses being persons is applied to the funding of propaganda to elevate climate denial into a scientific theory. Greenpeace is one step ahead of the Democratic senators seeking information about the climate-denial funding: The organization did an analysis of the Koch brothers' financial backing of climate-denial front groups and spokespersons:
    Billionaire oilman David Koch used to joke that Koch Industries was "the biggest company you've never heard of." Now the shroud of secrecy has thankfully been lifted, revealing the $67 million [from 1997 to 2011] that he and his brother Charles have quietly funneled to climate-denial front groups that are working to delay policies and regulations aimed at stopping global warming, most of which are part of the State Policy Network.
The Greenpeace estimate of Koch financial backing for climate science denial cannot, of course, be entirely precise, because given the refusal of the Koch brothers to voluntarily reveal their financing, it is not possible to verify the full extent of their funding. Dahr Jamail and other Truthout reporters have been reporting on the devastation of global warming in real time, in an ongoing environmental feature, "Planet or Profit." The revelations in the articles are indisputable and alarming. If the Koch brothers believe in free enterprise and the unfettered accumulation of personal wealth, why should they be so secretive about their funding of political campaigns, organizations and projects that benefit their personal wealth? ..........
READ ON! NETENYAHOO "they're bussing them (the arabs) out" Nick Gass at politico.com caught this one Netanyahu: 'Arab voters are coming out in droves' Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sounded alarm Tuesday over high voter turnout among Arabs in the country’s Knesset election, urging supporters to get their friends and families to vote for his Likud party. “The right-wing government is in danger. Arab voters are coming out in droves to the polls. Left-wing organizations are busing them out,” Netanyahu said in a 28-second video in Hebrew posted on his Facebook page, according to a translation by Haaretz . “Get out to vote, bring your friends and family, vote Likud in order to close the gap between us and ‘Labor.’” NO SHIT! Maybe voters had to take busses because that's how far away they are from where you put the polling places? Who can forget Election 2004 at Kenyon College that had only TWO voting machines and had to stay open way past midnight to let everyone in line vote? (see No One Should Have to Stand in Line for 10 Hours to Vote.) And right here in Da Cleve on Election Day 2004 watch No Umbrella This game is not new. NEXT Common Dreams staff writer Sarah Lazare reports UN Commission: Israeli Occupation Imposes 'Grave Situation' on Palestinian Women Motion condemns Israel's 50-day military assault on Gaza late last summer, which killed at least 2,194 Palestinians, including hundreds of women and girls – The United Nations Commission on the Status of Women passed a resolution on Friday condemning the Israeli occupation as imposing a "grave situation" on Palestinian women. The motion (pdf) from the 45 member commission notes that "the Israeli occupation remains the major obstacle for Palestinian women with regard to their advancement, self-reliance and integration in the development of their society." Further, the resolution condemns Israel's 50-day military assault on Gaza late last summer, which killed at least 2,194 Palestinians, at least 75 percent of them civilians and over 500 of them children. Sponsored by the Palestinian and South African delegates, the motion passed 27 to two, with the U.S. and Israel voting against and 13 European Union members abstaining. .......... Look for more of this as Netanyahoo begins his fourth term. At WallStreetOnParade.com Pam Martens posits The Clintons and the Fed Are Gasping Over the April Issue of Harper’s ............ the April issue of Harper’s Magazine is focusing gasp-worthy attention on the “loan-sharking” business that Bill Clinton, as President, assisted in transforming into the too-big-to-fail Citigroup that played a leading role in bringing the country to the brink of financial collapse in 2008. Janet Yellen’s Fed can’t be too happy either about the revelations. The Fed just gave Citigroup a clean bill of health last week under its so-called rigorous stress tests and is allowing the bank to spend like a drunken sailor, raising its dividend 400 percent with permission to buy back as much as $7.8 billion of its own stock. ............... Harper’s six-page article jolts the reader with nugget after nugget unearthed from Citigroup’s unseemly history – facts that both the Clintons and the Fed would no doubt prefer to stay buried. This epistle to greed and excess and regulatory hubris is written by Andrew Cockburn, Harper’s Washington Editor and a man well credentialed to do it justice. Cockburn and his wife, Leslie Cockburn, co-produced the documentary, American Casino, which provided an in-depth look at the players behind the 2008 financial collapse. .................. Cockburn prints an excerpt from an affidavit that [Tonanwanda NY assistant sales manager Gail] Kubiniec eventually filed with the Federal Trade Commission in 2001 about the practices of Commercial Credit, which had by then changed its name to CitiFinancial:
    “I and other employees would often determine how much insurance could be sold to a borrower based on the borrower’s occupation, race, age, and education level. If someone appeared uneducated, inarticulate, was a minority, or was particularly old or young, I would try to include all the coverages CitiFinancial offered. The more gullible the consumer appeared, the more coverages I would try to include in the loan.”
If Kubiniec’s story has a ring of familiarity, it’s likely because you read Alayne Fleischmann’s allegations against JPMorgan Chase concerning the subprime housing bust in Matt Taibbi’s investigative report in the November issue of Rolling Stone. .................
Read all of this synopsis and if you have a Harper's subscription you can get into Andrew Cockburn’s Letter From Washington Saving the Whale, Again - The catastrophic incompetence of Citigroup. For those not getting 'The Whale' reference go read Matt Taibbi's Live-Blogging the Senate Hearing on J.P. Morgan Chase and the Infamous 'London Whale' Episode at Rolling Stone from two years ago almost to the day! Murtaza Hussain at The Intercept looks at the Strange World of ex-U.K. PM Tony Blair in Tony Blair Is Terrible at Promoting Human Rights, Great at Enriching Himself After serving nearly eight years as special peace envoy for the “Quartet” powers mediating the Israel-Palestine conflict, Tony Blair is resigning, reportedly “over his poor relations with senior Palestinian Authority figures and [his] sprawling business interests.” After almost a decade as envoy, it’s hard to see anything Blair has done to bring Israelis and Palestinians any closer to peace. .............. But although he failed to broker peace, Blair did manage during his time as special envoy to transform himself into a well-paid and outspoken apologist for some of the most brutal autocracies in the world. The former prime minister, who once positioned himself as a principled supporter of democracy, even famously waging a war to bring democracy to Iraq, now leads a consulting firm that has reportedly received tens of millions of dollars doing advisory work for dictatorial governments in the Middle East and Central Asia. Last year, leaked documents obtained by Britain’s The Telegraph revealed Blair advising the dictatorial government of Kazakhstan’s Nursultan Nuzarbayev on how to best spin a 2011 massacre of unarmed protestors by his regime — a massacre that occurred just a few weeks after Blair began working for the regime, which had ostensibly hired his firm to advise it on BTVgood governance issues like judicial reform, corruption, free press and the rule of law. While Blair worked for Nazarbayev, however, human rights actually deteriorated in Kazakhstan, according to various sources. ................... Whatever his other failures, Blair has undeniably succeeded in creating a lucrative career for himself as a globetrotting “consultant” for tyrannical governments across the world. While his financial dealings are opaque, some estimates of his personal wealth have run as high as £100 million (over $148 million USD) — a figure Blair has denied, saying, un-mathematically, “I’m not worth 100 million, a half of it, a third of it, a quarter of it or a fifth of it or really a fraction.” ............. Does Bush's Poodle really have brass balls that big? Sure he does! Read on! But wait! there's more! MORE PATRICK COCKBURN Tony Blair joins a strange and exclusive club of political leaders whose careers have been blighted by the Middle East Blair is a member of a strange but exclusive club consisting of British and American political leaders whose careers have been blighted or terminated over the past century by calamitous involvement in the Middle East. On the British side members include Winston Churchill, David Lloyd George and Anthony Eden, and among the Americans are Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George W Bush. Do the different crises in the Middle East with which these six men failed to cope successfully have anything in common? Were similar mistakes made, and why has the region become such a graveyard for political reputations? READ ALL OF THIS! THEN WATCH THIS VIDEO! Interview with Patrick Cockburn at StopMakingSense.org Who Is Bankrolling the Islamic State? And get his NEW BOOK! The Jihadis Return: ISIS AND THE NEW SUNNI UPRISING Professor of History at the University of Michigan Juan Cole at his Informed Comment explains Israel apologist Tom Friedman & funding ISIL: Israel/Iran Derangement Syndrome Being a liberal Zionist was always a tough thing to pull off, but it is becoming increasingly just impossible. The intrinsic contradiction between wanting social justice and equity at home and supporting a militaristic and Apartheid Israel abroad produces what psychologists call cognitive dissonance. It is hard to believe two opposite ideologies at the same time. And the effort seems to have driven the New York Times‘s Tom Friedman bonkers. Many otherwise sensible people who are strong supporters of Israel have concluded that Iran is so dire threat to it that extraordinary measures against Tehran are in order. Friedman seems to have abruptly joined this group (he used to be more measured on Iran). Now he seems to suggest that if the choice is between a US grand coalition against Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) that includes a de facto alliance with Iran, or a grand coalition against Iran that might include Daesh/ISIL, he actually favors the latter. Well, he sidesteps his support by wondering why no one takes this position; but what else could he mean? His rationale is that the US has removed Iran’s enemies twice before, overthrowing the Taliban in Afghanistan and then Saddam Hussein in Iraq, and making Iran into a regional hegemon. If, he seems to say, the US crushes ISIL, it will be consolidating Iranian regional power. He doesn’t bring up Israel, but his commitment to it must be driving this bizarre calculation that leads him to want to arm the beheaders and ethnic cleansers and traffickers of young girls. (He doesn’t bring up that he was all for overthrowing Saddam Hussein in Iraq, which means he was part of the problem he is now describing). Iran is not a strategic threat to the United States. It has a small underfunded regular military and the neighborhood volunteers of the Basij that are counted by Iranophobes in their armed forces are not trained soldiers. US intelligence has dropped Iran and Lebanon’s Hizbullah as terrorist threats this year, making the opposite calculation of Friedman, that if the choice is between letting ISIL run wild or de facto allying with Iran and its Lebanese ally, the latter is far preferable. Digby takes Friedman and Marco Rubio and others who have engaged in this reasoning apart here. But Friedman is not a Rubio. What accounts for him being in this category of Daesh-supporters when he is not a conservative (in the American political sense of conservative)? It is his Zionism. .................. Much more!

And lastly we mourn the passing of Danny Schechter, News Dissector who we've featured many times in Brick TeeVee. The thing about Danny was that he ALWAYS examined every story he covered from the lens of how the so-called "main stream media" in this country either twisted the story or gave complete indifference to it. And then went on to tell the REAL story of what was happening. The Brick TeeVee Crew has always strived to bring you stories and contexts the Lame Stream Media tend to distort or ignore and The News Dissector is one of our heroes in exposing and telling about the BIG ISSUES the-powers-that-be explicitly or implicitly want you to ignore or just suck up and believe their spin. Although our crappy little blog can never hold a candle to the monumental work and truth-telling The News Dissector covered in his five-plus decades we will strive to emulate the same intensity he brought to journalism. Rest in peace, Danny. The torch you lit will carry on, here and everywhere people seek out truths amid the corporate lies, half-truths, misdirections and spin. From the Common Dreams archive: Where Is the American Spring? (or Sunshine on a Cloudy Day) by Danny Schechter [CD Editor's Note: While we mourn Thursday's passing of our friend and longtime contributor Danny Schechter, we celebrate his life and work today by offering this selection as a testimony to the power of his masterful ability to cut through current events with a wisdom honed by the past and an optimistic commitment to the future. If time allows in your day, dear reader, take the time to go through the scores of Schechter's other columns in our archive to see just a small portion of the wider body of work to which he dedicated his life. From his peristent role as a both a producer and critic of media to his commitment to peace and justice, Danny offered all of us an uncanny window into the mind of a person who chronicled the late 20th- and early 21st Century with equal shares of reverence for craft, rebelliousness of spirit, and deep caring for others.

The 1st Amendment is Our Permit Our permit to occupy is The First Amendment. Quickly sign the following statement which will be delivered to mayors, police chiefs and major media across the country:

    Our permit to occupy public squares and parks is in The First Amendment, which affirms "the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." When people across the Middle East occupied public squares, leaders in Washington mostly cheered those protesters and warned Middle Eastern governments not to use force to clear them. Those other societies don’t have a First Amendment. Yet Washington affirmed the universal right to assembly and protest. We do have a First Amendment. The force being used to clear nonviolent protesters from public squares in our country is unacceptable. It must stop.

NET NEUTRALITY! SaveTheInternet.com Declaration of Internet Freedom Tired of fighting bad bills like SOPA, PIPA and CISPA? Want to stand up against those who are trying to control what we do and say online? It's time for something different. A group of more than 1,500 organizations, academics, startup founders and tech innovators has come together to produce a Declaration of Internet Freedom, a set of five principles that put forward a positive vision of the open Internet. Our goal: Get millions of Internet users to sign on to this Declaration. Build political power for Internet users to make sure that we get a seat at the table whenever, and wherever, the future of the Internet is being decided. It's time to stop playing defense and start going on the offensive. The open Internet is central to people’s freedom to communicate, share, advocate and innovate in the 21st century. But powerful interests want to censor free speech, block the sharing of information, hinder innovation and control how Internet users get online. And all too often, people in power are making political decisions behind closed doors about how the Internet should operate — and they're doing this without the involvement of actual Internet users. The result: policies that could close down the open Internet and destroy our freedom to connect. It’s time for us to reclaim the Internet for its users. Take action now and sign the Declaration of Internet Freedom. ACTION! Tell the FCC: No Frankenstein Net Neutrality The FCC is considering a new plan that has the same big problems we’ve been protesting against all year. Tell the agency we’ll accept nothing less than REAL Net Neutrality. Just how bad is it? This new proposal: • Would allow broadband providers to cut specialized deals with companies to reach Internet users. • Still gives us slow lanes and gives users no real protection against discrimination from Internet service providers. • Rests on shaky legal arguments that won’t stand up in court. This isn't what millions of us have been fighting for. SIGN NOW at Tell Chairman Wheeler: No Frankenstein Net Neutrality at freepress.net NOW.

Stop Media Consolidation! Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski is trying to change the agency’s ownership rules to pave the way for Murdoch to get exactly what he wants. Worse, Genachowski and Murdoch are keeping this all very hush-hush, hoping you won't notice. These changes wouldn’t just benefit Murdoch. If the FCC proposal passes, one company could own the major daily newspaper, two TV stations and up to eight radio stations in your town. And that one company could be your Internet provider, too. What is the FCC thinking?!? We can still stop the agency from taking this perilous step — but we have less than a month to do it. By taking action, you’re joining a movement of millions who are working to stop big media from getting even bigger. Please take action today.

REPRESENT.US IT’S TIME TO GET MONEY OUT OF POLITICS SO THE GOVERNMENT CAN REPRESENT US. Represent.Us is a fresh campaign to pass the American Anti-Corruption Act: a law that would overhaul campaign finance, impose strict lobbying and conflict of interest laws, and end secret political money.

Represent.Us is not just building a movement to pass the Act. The campaign will use hard-hitting accountability tactics to unseat politicians who fail to endorse the Act. If passed, the Act will completely reshape American politics and policy-making and give people a voice.

    Holiday Break and Website Changes
      To my valued listeners: We are making some changes to the website and our terms, effective in January. We will continue to offer free podcasts–my new daily news and commentary. Our in-depth interviews will be available for $1 per episode, or to subscribers who pay $5 per month or more. Loyal listeners who simply can’t afford it should send an email to peter@peterbcollins.com, as we will be offering a limited number of scholarships to our friends who are hurting during these tough times. More information will be posted as we complete the revisions. I’m grateful to each of you for listening and supporting this work, and hope that the new model will enable us to keep it going well into the future. All the best, -pbc

    FBI Moves to Broaden Hacking Authority – Google Says it Poses “Monumental Constitutional Concern” by Michael Krieger — A judicial advisory panel Monday quietly approved a rule change that will broaden the FBI’s hacking authority despite fears raised by Google that the amended language represents a “monumental” constitutional concern. The FBI wants the expanded authority, which would allow it to more easily infiltrate computer networks to install malicious tracking software. If we’ve learned anything about the FBI over the past several years, it’s that the agency is extraordinarily skilled at finding mentally ill, dead-broke young Muslims and convincing them to become terrorists and by taking part in FBI created and funded terrorist plots… Read more here.........

    Gold Downside $850/oz; Upside Jump to $2,000/oz on ‘Grexit’ by Mark O'Byrne —
    -Capital Economics chart-based analysis sees gold ending year higher at $1,400 per ounce
    -Sees a remote possibility of gold falling to $850 per ounce
    -A “Grexit” may cause gold to surge to $2,000 per ounce
    Julian Jessop from Capital Economics has written an interesting short piece on the company’s expectation for gold prices. It analyses golds performance, in four charts, against the US dollar, US treasury yields and expectations by investors for a Eurozone break-up....

    Clinton Foundation’s Deep Financial Ties to Ukrainian Oligarch Who Pushed for Closer Ties to EU Revealed by Michael Krieger — When I first came across the title to this article, I didn’t think much of it. In fact, I almost didn’t even click the link thinking it was just a repeat of a prior expose I highlighted in the post: Hillary Clinton Exposed Part 2 – Clinton Foundation Took Millions From Countries That Also Fund ISIS. Fortunately, I did decide to take a look and pretty soon my jaw absolutely hit the floor. Although the Wall Street Journal didn’t play up the connection, I was stunned to see that of all the oligarchs connected to foreign governments who donated to the Clinton Foundation while she was Secretary of State, Ukraine was at the very top. I thought this to be strange, but as I read on I just couldn’t believe how connected the main donor was to the current regime in power. Considering this is the main geopolitical hotspot on earth right now, many, many questions need to be asked… Read more here......... (libertyblitzkrieg.com)

  • The Scott Horton Radio Show
    scotthorton
    Scott Horton is host of Antiwar Radio on Pacifica 90.7 FM KPFK in Los Angeles and KUCR 88.3 in Riverside, and the Scott Horton Show on No Agenda Radio. (You can listen live Monday through Friday New show hours effective 5/26/2014 @ 12-2 PM Eastern! HERE.) Plenty of archives too!
    • Scott Horton Radio Show Progress Report: All right, yall, welcome back to the show to the inaugural Scott Horton Show progress report! It’s been an eventful year since the show and I (amicably) parted ways with Antiwar.com, so I thought I would highlight just a few of the show’s important milestones, as well as preview some of the exciting projects to look for in the near future. ........ The show on Pacifica KPFK 90.7 FM in L.A., still called Antiwar Radio, has now moved to join their Sunday morning public affairs line up (8:30 am pt - http://kpfk.org), and remains the largest source of listeners, with 15,000-20,000 people tuning in weekly. The future: Liberty Express Radio is growing and bringing me along for the ride. The great Charles Goyette hooked me up with Alan Butler and the Liberty Express earlier this year, and what has been the daily replay there from 3-5 eastern time has become my best listened-to show. And now they’re adding my friend Tom Woods to the lineup from 2-3 PM. That does it. I’m making the switch! Starting Monday, October 14, the live show is moving to LibertyExpressRadio.com, as well as NoAgenda and my own stream....... New show hours effective 5/26/2014: 12-2 PM Eastern!
    3/12/15 Grant F. Smith: Grant F. Smith, director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy, discusses the upcoming conference “The Israel Lobby: Is it Good for the US? Is it Good for Israel?” scheduled for April 10, 2015 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
    3/15/15 Gareth Porter: Gareth Porter, an award-winning independent journalist, discusses the remaining obstacles to an Iranian nuclear deal; why Israel’s Likud government and its supporters are trying so hard to sabotage a deal; and the history of bad intelligence assessments about Iran’s (non-existent) nuclear weapons program.
    3/16/15 Ray McGovern: Ray McGovern, a former CIA analyst and co-founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS), discusses President Obama’s foreign policy advisers who are actively trying to sabotage the ceasefire in eastern Ukraine; and why the media can’t seem to remember that Victoria Nuland orchestrated the Ukrainian coup.
    3/18/15 Philip Giraldi: Philip Giraldi, a former CIA officer and Executive Director of The Council for the National Interest, discusses the Israeli government’s shift to the far right after elections, during which Benjamin Netanyahu denounced a two-state solution and shamelessly pandered to racists.
    3/19/15 Eric Margolis: Eric Margolis, an internationally syndicated columnist and author of American Raj, discusses Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s change of mind on a two-state solution – after he completely ruled out a Palestinian state during re-election campaigning, earning a rebuke from the White House.
