Man



Steve Cutts is a treasure.

RussiaGate


As my loyal readers know, yours truly detests Trump and wants him gone in 2020 in ways that truly boggle the mind. With that being said, the real 2016 RussiaGate follies are about to begin and what a show it will be starting with fact No. 1, It was a leak and not a hack.

To whit:

Facts 2 & 3: Mueller never talked to Assange about the emails nor did he talk to William Binney about the leak. 

So ...


And this ...





And this ...



With a touch of blowback and 1st Amendment issues as well ...



But the real cost of RussiaGate is this ...


Lastly ...


Frogmarch anyone?

Trump has got the crew needed to gut the 1st Amendment. With these minions in place regarding the press (Wikileaks) and Israel achieving success with the senate via the Orwellian phrased BDS bill, S.1 - Strengthening America's Security in the Middle East Act of 2019 making it illegal to criticize Israel's treatment of the Palestinians, the gutting of our civil rights, starting with W (Homeland Security) and Obama (12333/Patriot Act), is in full swing as seen by the charging of Assange by the 1917 Espionage Act.

In June 1917, Congress passed the Espionage Act. ... Congress passed the Sedition Act of 1918, which made it a federal offense to use "disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language" about the Constitution, the government, the American uniform, or the flag. The government prosecuted over 2,100 people under these acts.


The question to ask here is ... what does this mean for the press and the 1st Amendment?







For What's It's Worth is yet again, prescient to a fault.


There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children, 
hey what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

It's time we stop, 
hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side

It's s time we stop, 
hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

We better stop, 
hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Remember, dictatorships happen when people are passive, uneducated and deceived. Something to think about don't you think?

3 times longer :)


EKCD yet again. :)

Going Digital


Going digital in terms of managing data has been around for years, going digital in terms of managing power was not considered possible, until now, a technology destined to change how man handles power ... forever.


What this means ...


I want this without question, especially when manipulating power like one manipulates data over the net. Stellar to the nth degree without a doubt.

The Forever War


The Forever War, you know, the one we are currently in, began around Vietnam in the late 60s, a long running body of work consisting of firefights, skirmishes and protracted campaigns yielding not one victory, save for Grenada, as all the rest either consists of stalemates or defeats depending on the specific action in question as we move ever further into 2019. In connecting this set of fubars to Nam, another "skirmish" based on a lie and ending in defeat, one readily learns the tragic fact these brave men and women died not for freedom but for a misbegotten foreign policy driven by profit for the companies supplying the weapons for a war that never ends.

The "other" great Earthrise ...



This is the "other" great Earthrise picture proving that there is no up or down in space, only space itself.  :)






Something to think about, right?

The Idea of "Goose" :)


DC strikes yet again. :)

It's all about the money/Rev LX


It's all about the money/Rev LX.




Boggles the mind doesn't it.

415 & counting


As my loyal readers know, climate change is a pretty big deal with BRT as it's a rather serious issue regarding the survivability of us as we mover further into the 21st century. With this in mind, consider the "achievement" of us rubes on reaching 415 parts per million of C02 in the atmosphere thanks to fossil fuel production and what it portends for an overcrowded planet complete with environmental degradation and resource depletion. Comforting is it not?









Just think, we haven't even discussed the accelerating release of methane in Russia and Canada, a CO2 variant  84 times more efficient in trapping heat than CO2 or the conversion of the Arctic from heat reflector to heat sink thanks to the loss of Albedo,  a key component of ice that has kept this planet cool for millennia prior to the arrival of us humans.
