Israeli embassy under attack in Cairo – in pictures – Egyptian protesters storm the Israeli embassy in Cairo – Riot police take position [Amr Abdallah Dalsh/Reuters]

*****

Catch this from Meacham…. if you can read the running slop wthout vomiting, that is:

JON MEACHAM homily for an Evensong in Commemoration of 9/11, to be delivered tomorrow afternoon at Saint Thomas Church, on Fifth Avenue:

“A day like September 11 reminds us of the essential fragility of all things. … We reacted as a great people, a people imbued with a moral sensibility and a passion for liberty and for order. … You and I can argue about the details of the American response, … about the tactics and the wars. But the power and the glory of this republic lie precisely there, in the freedom to argue and to grumble-and, ultimately, in the freedom to hope that our arguments, conducted within history, can shape history. …

“The terrorists who brought war to this island a decade ago believed they were agents of God. They were not. They were-they are-agents of evil, driven by a will to power. It was the most extreme expression imaginable of the most ancient sin of all: the sin of pride, of believing you are not a subject of God’s but a god yourself. This is the perversion that cost us Eden … So it was that the terrorists of 9/11 were 21st-century serpents-lineal descendants of that first spineless snake who slithered through the garden. … Love and remembrance: such is the legacy of September 11 and its aftermath. It is the same legacy, in fact, as Good Friday — a day of death that ultimately affirmed life.”

More than a little transference?  I’d say…

Yes I so wanted to grow up to be an unwilling volunteer for the recycling side of the garbage collection (about what most “green” hype is these days… ) and I SO WANTED TO grow up and be alive in the United States of the Full Partner of Israel.

Yes indeedy.

Totally nauseating. Total Transference, yeah. But I hate the ” my Abrahamic God is Good and yours is evil” meme especially…

…-agents of evil, …. most ancient sin of all: the sin of pride, of believing you are not a subject of God’s but a god yourself…..i This is the perversion that cost us Eden …descendants of that first spineless snake who slithered through the garden. … …Good Friday — a day of death that ultimately affirmed life.

Meacham, the man wo declared God does in deed look just like Billy Graham.

I mean, it is scary how fuckign nuts we are. We are right up there, with the fucknut Muslims who freak out over depictions, cartoon or otherwise, of “Mohammed” (and I am so tired of that sort!, much less “our sort”)

Man Named ‘F— You C—sucker’ Flips out on News Crew

A crew from Portland’s KGW-TV stopped by the International Longshore and Warehouse Union’s headquarters in Longview, Washington to ask about the union’s heated dispute with a grain terminal operator. During their truth-seeking quest they met a plaid-shirted man named Fuck You Cocksucker who threatened to break their cameras and punch their faces, insulted a “dumb motherfucker” cameraman’s eyeglasses, and said he’d have them all arrested for trespassing.

I am watching a documentary on the American films of the 70s (” A Decade Under the Influence”, drwing from the title of Cassavetes’, A Woman Under the Influence …. that film movement that grew out of the end of th late 60s and big shifts in Hollywood. The big changes in English cinema in the 60’s and the whole Nouvelle Vague in Paris and Europe.. and so on

We so need a major crack up… a breaking apart of how everything is. I mean, Obama s just the fucking end. He is. Pisses me off more than Bush. For real.

Julie Christie had a great interview in the first part, about how now everything has snapped back to how it was before, all the same stuff, churned out over and over and over. Bingo on that.

Landlord Refuses To Rent To Single Mother Because There’s No Man “To Shovel The Snow”

The Lacrosse Tribune reports the landlord was open about her actions when questioned by investigators, saying that she routinely refuses to rent to single mothers because of the “brutal” winters. She said that single mothers can’t handle the isolation or the snow removal duties.

During the conversation with investigators, the landlord also complained that single mothers are part of the nation’s current economic problems. She offered her opinions on how single mothers were not such a problem in the 60’s and 70’s.

marisacat - 10 September 2011

Oh, yeah, we single mothers, we have soooo much power over the economy. There are some days that I more seriously entertain my homicidal fantasies …. reading stuff like this helps.

Every once in w while I tote up all of the ways that I have been the the root of all evil (before laughing right the fuck out loud)…lessee:

I am a teacher
I am a single mother
I had a baby out of wedlock
I am divorced (no man to shovel the snow, doncha know? he was great at shoveling the shit though!!)
I have been on unemployment and accepted food stamps
I am educated (some might say over-educated)
I homeschool my child

Oh, I could go on and on, but why bother?

No doubt there’s a Smart Phone AP – WTF!!!!! …maybe “we” can drone Detroit City and barbecue those worthless criminals, as part of the festivities; ….and if we run short of vittles …if the hunger is larger than expected, …..we could always solicit the Nursing Home Industry for back up, you know those elders who can still write, do their multiplication tables and read (and understand) tree sourced books …better than today’s Melinda & Billy Gates Foundation, Pay Pal, Facebook, Google, Oracle ™s, et al, punished youth.

Long piece in the Guardian, on Japan and Fukushima. A former Tokyo bureau reporter for the Guardian returns.

It is basically a funerary piece.

[B]efore publication, I sent Reiko a draft of this article. Her reply was polite, but I felt she was disappointed. “Maybe you can find the answer. Maybe it is too much to ask. If so, just forget it. Even though I am much louder than other Japanese, I feel I am lost. My life here requires me to be normalised, to behave like we used to. I have to work, I have to eat. After five months of struggling, I am getting tired of worrying. It is much easier to give up pursuing reality. What bothers me most is being torn in this conflicting situation with no answer, every moment.”

I sympathise immensely but regret that I cannot offer the comfort of clarity. The nuclear disaster has been terrifying, but not as expected. If someone had told me a year ago that three reactors would melt down simultaneously, I would have assumed an apocalypse. Yet Japan today is not like any doomsday I imagined. Instead, there is a kind of slow decay. After three visits to Fukushima, I am less afraid of radiation than I was a year ago but more worried about Japan.

diane - 10 September 2011

If someone had told me a year ago that three reactors would melt down simultaneously, I would have assumed an apocalypse. Yet Japan today is not like any doomsday I imagined. ….

and of course, despite any deeper communication she made, the fact of no immediate apocalypse will be run with for all it’s worth by those sociopaths in a position to do so.

marisacat - 10 September 2011

Judge: CIA need not release drone strike files – Josh Gerstein:

Judge: CIA need not release drone strike files

A federal judge ruled Friday that the Central Intelligence Agency does not have to release any records related to its use of unmanned drone aircraft to kill suspected terrorists in Pakistan, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Ruling in a Freedom of Information Act case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, Judge Rosemary Collyer said records about the use of drones could be withheld under the rubric of “intelligence sources and methods.” She rejected the ACLU’s arguments that lethal drones aren’t really involved in acquiring intelligence.

“At first blush, there is force to Plaintiffs’ argument that a ‘targeted-killing program is not an intelligence program’ in the most strict and traditional sense,” Collyer wrote, before concluding: “The Court has no reason to second-guess the CIA as to which programs that may or may not be of interest implicate the gathering of intelligence.” . . . . .

‘Find my car’ app can also catch crooks

(…)

Take Control of Your Super Special Offer Ends Soon. Apply Now!
After entering your license plate number a variety of cars are displayed. You then choose your car and the app tells you directions from where you are to your car.

After entering your license plate number a variety of cars are displayed. You then choose your car and the app tells you directions from where you are to your car.

(…)

Westfield’s new app means you’ll never lose your car in the shopping centre again – and police now have at their fingertips technology to track down stolen and unregistered vehicles.

(…)

The idea behind it is that if a shopper forgets where they parked then they can find their car using the app, which also lets users find out the opening hours of each retailer, see special offers and search for a store’s location in the shopping centre.

But Westfield said police could also use it to find stolen or unregistered vehicles. In a statement, NSW Police said it worked closely with security at Westfield Bondi Junction and utilised their technology “when required”.

(…)
“Effectively when you drive into the centre our cameras in the car park … identify the number plate,” he said. “You then input your [license plate] number and it provides where the car is and it will take you there.”

It was “definitely possible” for Westfield Bondi Junction to now find cars that police were looking for more easily. “In the past that was a lottery and we’d have our security patrol walk the car park,” Mr Batistich said.

(…)

Although the app had not yet been used by police for that purpose, Mr Batistich said that if law enforcement provided a license plate number that they believed was in the Westfield Bondi Junction centre, then Westfield or police could asses whether that car was in the car park using the technology.

“I think that’s a great community service but we haven’t used that to my knowledge [since] it’s been launched.”

Fuking Brilliant! Why rely on a memory honed by millions of years of evolution and that allowed our ancestors to be successful at gathering needed resources when we have a fragile technology that abdicates our responsibility for tuning into our surrounding milieu and gives our power over to Authority? I’m sure they would never abuse it, and our ability remember anything but what Brands are our style won’t atrophy with dis-use…

Hedges: A Decade After 9/11: We Are What We Loathe

The images of the “jumpers” proved too gruesome for the TV networks. Even before the towers collapsed, the falling men and women were censored from live broadcasts. Isolated pictures appeared the next day in papers, including The New York Times, and then were banished. The mass suicide, one of the most pivotal and important elements in the narrative of 9/11, was expunged. It remains expunged from public consciousness.

The “jumpers” did not fit into the myth the nation demanded. The fate of the “jumpers” said something so profound, so disturbing, about our own fate, smallness in the universe and fragility that it had to be banned. The “jumpers” illustrated that there are thresholds of suffering that elicit a willing embrace of death. The “jumpers” reminded us that there will come, to all of us, final moments when the only choice will be, at best, how we will choose to die, not how we are going to live. And we can die before we physically expire.

The shock of 9/11, however, demanded images and stories of resilience, redemption, heroism, courage, self-sacrifice and generosity, not collective suicide in the face of overwhelming hopelessness and despair.

Reporters in moments of crisis become clinicians. They collect data, facts, descriptions, basic information, and carry out interviews as swiftly as possible. We make these facts fit into familiar narratives. We do not create facts but we manipulate them. We make facts conform to our perceptions of ourselves as Americans and human beings. We work within the confines of national myth. We make journalism and history a refuge from memory. The pretense that mass murder and suicide can be transformed into a tribute to the victory of the human spirit was the lie we all told to the public that day and have been telling ever since. We make sense of the present only through the lens of the past, as the French philosopher Maurice Halbwachs pointed out, recognizing that “our conceptions of the past are affected by the mental images we employ to solve present problems, so that collective memory is essentially a reconstruction of the past in the light of the present. … Memory needs continuous feeding from collective sources and is sustained by social and moral props.”

I returned that night to the newsroom hacking from the fumes released by the burning asbestos, jet fuel, lead, mercury, cellulose and construction debris. I sat at my computer, my thin paper mask still hanging from my neck, trying to write and catch my breath. All who had been at the site that day were noticeable in the newsroom because they were struggling for air. Most of us were convulsed by shock and grief.

There would soon, however, be another reaction. Those of us who were close to the epicenters of the 9/11 attacks would primarily grieve and mourn. Those who had some distance would indulge in the growing nationalist cant and calls for blood that would soon triumph over reason and sanity. Nationalism was a disease I knew intimately as a war correspondent. It is anti-thought. It is primarily about self-exaltation. The flip side of nationalism is always racism, the dehumanization of the enemy and all who appear to question the cause. The plague of nationalism began almost immediately. My son, who was 11, asked me what the difference was between cars flying small American flags and cars flying large American flags.

“The people with the really big flags are the really big assholes,” I told him.

The dead in the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania were used to sanctify the state’s lust for war. To question the rush to war became to dishonor our martyrs. Those of us who knew that the attacks were rooted in the long night of humiliation and suffering inflicted by Israel on the Palestinians, the imposition of our military bases in the Middle East and in the brutal Arab dictatorships that we funded and supported became apostates. We became defenders of the indefensible. We were apologists, as Christopher Hitchens shouted at me on a stage in Berkeley, “for suicide bombers.”

Gracias, Loco del Mercado. Finally something I can read about this cursed day that won’t make me barf or send me to the clocktower with my carbine:evil:

The dead in the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania were used to sanctify the state’s lust for war.

This is why I’m working today (eh, this leetle bit of procrastination? all work and no ganja makes this Gabacho just another meanie white boy on a treadmill to tonto-ness) and avoiding all “Noooze” about nine eleven; I will explode into a vomitious rage as the Our HOLY DEAD are sanctified, and inducted once again, into the service of the Imperialistic terrorist oligarchy as the unquestionable reason why we can kill thousands as regularly as the garbage trucks haul garbage of Manhattan.

BTW I know that the appreciation of tinfoil hats suffers the vagaries of fashion (for some its hot, for others not) and the info is dated (and links broken) from this old RI post about the myriad 9/11 coinky-dinks, but consider it as at least a bit of nostalgic entertainment to amuse the menagerie as we plunge in a greased bucket down to the innermost cantos of the inferno on this day of dissembling and enginered disinfo…

marisacat - 11 September 2011

There was so much of this sort of thing, that it is not funny:

That FBI informant Randy Glass, working an undercover sting, was told by Pakistani intelligence operatives that the World Trade Center towers were coming down, and that his repeated warnings which continued until weeks before the attacks, including the mention of planes used as weapons, were ignored by federal authorities, is simply one of the many “What Ifs” of that tragic day.

That over the summer of 2001 Washington received many urgent, senior-level warnings from foreign intelligence agencies and governments – including those of Germany, France, Great Britain, Russia, Egypt, Israel, Morocco, Afghanistan and others – of impending terror attacks using hijacked aircraft and did nothing, demonstrates the pressing need for a new Intelligence Czar.

marisacat - 11 September 2011

quite a few tidbits in there i never read alluded to elsewhere….

That Jeb Bush was on board an aircraft that removed flight school records to Washington in the middle of the night on Sept 12th demonstrates how seriously the governor takes the issue of national security.

Ganjafied Gabacho - 11 September 2011

What kills me is that none of that mattered then and it certainly is completely moot at this point….If our current cocksucker in chief told Holder when they came in to pursue these guys to the ends of the world then Obama wouldn’t be guilty of treason (he is) and truly deserving of a Nobel (is not) and not the World Court (as he is now) .
But then he would have been a different kind of human than Obama ever was or even dreamed of being…

By the by, as brinn noted above, great writing re the car tracking app, and I couldn’t agree more. I’ve been horrified for years now about the ever increasing tech gadgetry and software intended to supercede individual thought and action, and thoroughly end privacy.

The whole intent of the Smartphones/Androids is to perfect The Davos “inspired” Cloud ™ : superceding computers, to store vast volumes of personal data on company databanks; monitoring a persons every action, transaction and communication; interfacing with their electrical usage; and interfacing with the medical industry. And then there is the whole, quite unresolved issue, about those low wave electromagnetic frequencies, I thought the following, from Jeff/RigInt, starring that evil fuck, M.A., was very interesting in that regard:

From PSYOP to Mindwar: The Psychology of Victory is a military paper on psychological warfare, written by Col. Paul Vallely and Lt. Col. Michael Aquino in 1980. It was sent, writes Aquino, “to various governmental offices, agencies, commands and publications involved or interested in PSYOP.” I think it deserves a closer read now, because it describes a psychological conditioning Americans may find familiar. And the fact that one of the authors is the senior military analyst for FOXNews may not be an insignificant trifle.

cutting to the chase:

…. MindWar should take full advantage of such phenomena as atmospheric electromagnetic activity, air ionization, and extremely low frequency waves.

Anywho, I’m betting there will be a move to destroy landline usage fairly soon, just like there seems to be an effort to destroy public postal service, not a peep in the press about the postal jobs being endangered either. If I can help it, I will never buy a smart phone or android..

Lastly, I thought Jeff/RigInt (and thanks so much for that recent note that he had posted something new) did a fantastic write up on his September 1 post about the whole hideous movement to obsolesce human beings, and I was elated to finally see someone highlight that sociopath, Kurzweil, and his Google (among others) funded, Singularity Institute (which neighbors Google).

Prior to “911,” Paulina Borsook, who was one of the first and few female writers for Wired, wrote an excellent book (the editing was very poor though, and I’m pretty sure her then faith in the guv to mostly do the right thing, is likely gone.) about the chilling, Randian, White Boy Libertarian underpinning mentality to the whole SlyConValley Tech Industry, titled Cyberselfish: A Critical Romp Through the Terribly Libertarian Culture of High-Tech (the website doesn’t appear to be active, I believe she may have extracted herself from the techie grid, for the most part). Of course it’s out of print (although I was able to check it out at the Library), those powerful (Fed OPS Funded) fucks she angered made great use of Amazon to unrelentingly go after her for her truths, I wouldn’t at all be surprised if they viciously tried to ruin her life either.

Oh I don’t know. NY-9, the old Weiner seat, is all the way across the country… but if this view into the race, election on Tuesday, is any clue … Obama is in deep trouble.

The Democrat running actually is Jewish himself… and to the right of O on Israel, but the R, Turner, is absolutely cleaning up, numbers wise.

And the survey points more strongly to what people on both sides of the race have said is the central question, and something that should make the White House very nervous:

If Turner wins on Tuesday it will be largely due to the incredible unpopularity of Barack Obama dragging his party down in the district. Obama won 55% there in 2008 but now has a staggeringly bad 31% approval rating, with 56% of voters disapproving of him. It’s a given that Republicans don’t like him but more shocking are his 16% approval rating with independents and the fact that he’s below 50% even with Democrats at 46% approving and 38% disapproving. Obama trails Mitt Romney 46-42 in a hypothetical match up in the district and leads Rick Perry only 44-43.

Court Pleadings Point to CIA Role in Alleged “Cartel” Immunity Deal

The fingerprints of the CIA have surfaced in a controversial federal criminal case pending in Chicago against Jesus Vicente Zambada Niebla, an alleged kingpin in the Sinaloa “drug cartel.”

US government prosecutors filed pleadings in the case late last week seeking to invoke the Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA), a measure designed to assure national security information does not surface in public court proceedings.

snip

CIPA, enacted some 30 years ago, is designed to keep a lid on the public disclosure in criminal cases of classified materials, such as those associated with CIA operations. The rule requires that notice be given to the judge in advance of any move to introduce classified evidence in a case so that the judge can determine if it is admissible, or if another suitable substitution can be arranged that preserves the defendants right to a fair trial.

“That is a very reasonable conclusion [that the CIA is likely involved in this case in some way],” says a former federal agent familiar with national security procedures. “Seeking CIPA protection, yup, there is hot stuff to hide.”

hmmm Markos always seemed very jealous of Chris Lahane… whtever their many faults, both of them, he certainly got the REAL jobs, as opposed to Blahgger.

TOP TALKER -CHRIS LEHANE SELLS INTERNATIONAL RIGHTS TO “KNIFE FIGHT” – Myriad Pictures release:

“Myriad Pictures won the ‘Knife Fight’ international primary. Myriad will handle sales outside North America for Academy Award-winner Bill Guttentag’s political drama Knife Fight, starring Rob Lowe, Julie Bowen, Jamie Chung, Eric McCormack, Jennifer Morrison and Richard Schiff. The screenplay was written by Guttentag and political consultant Chris Lehane, who as a White House advisor to President Bill Clinton earned the reputation as ‘Master of Disaster’ [for his crisis management], and later served as Al Gore’s Press Secretary. This is Lehane’s first feature film script. Rob Lowe plays a hardball political crisis manager in the middle of a dirty campaign whose clients are hip-deep in scandals involving drugs, sex, money and lies. … Myriad plans to create a trailer for the American Film Market in November. The film will be ready to screen for the early 2012 festival season.”
