Pink Poodle Party 9 December 2010

Posted by marisacat in Inconvenient Voice of the Voter, Lie Down Fall Down Dems, Total fucking lunatics.

IIRC, this golf cart float was from a looney little free-for-all parade of some sort down in So California…

I used to toss this photo up from time to time when the Democrats were being spectacularly ba-a-a-a-d.  Could have left it up every day, frankly.

For a second there, I confused the poodle for Steny Hoyer also greeting us on Morning Blow.

Oh Gad: “Efforts”. Buy a new top, Mika.

I got a chuckle out of this on
the Register

Apart from the money movers, Anonymous has also attacked US Senator Joe Lieberman’s official government site, causing outages, and that of erstwhile vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin – { 🙄 } in both cases for making public statements critical of Wikileaks or its spokesman Julian Assange.

There are also suggestions that as the online “infowar” escalates, outside observers are being targeted by one side or the other.

A blog run by security firm Panda Labs, which has followed the DDoS battle closely and is one of the best sources of information, has itself come under DDoS attack

– though it’s not clear from which side.

Welp, they don’t call it Anarchy for nothin’, fellahs. LOL.

Protests in England over tuition hikes. Protests at La Scala over arts cuts.

Tax breaks for the supremely wealthy in the US? Crickets chirp.

Here in the Great White North Security State, the ombudsman’s report on G20 security is out and it doesn’t look good for the Powers That Be.

Authorities deliberately kept the public in the dark on the law, Mr. Marin told reporters, in what he called “the most massive compromise of civil liberties in Canadian history” which “amounted to martial law in Toronto.”

That’s quite the statement considering Trudeau’s extremely controversial use of the War Measures Act back in the 70s to deal with the FLQ.

But – there’s no doubt that we need a public inquiry about the G20 fiasco. The federal Con gov’t is punting responsibility, of course.

President Obama warned Thursday that the economy will move “backward” if lawmakers don’t approve a deal to extend tax cuts for the rich in exchange for more unemployment benefits. He said that if the agreement fails in Congress, it would “have the effect of fewer jobs.”

Interesting piece at Cpunch


on the Rapiscan scanners and how bad they are, but Obrama, the desi wanna-be, had the head of OSI, the parent company of Rapiscan with him in India.

It is apparently not enough that we as a nation are devolving. We now seek to export our devolution devices (ostensibly because that’s all we have to show for the past decade). Accompanying President Obama on his recent trip to India was Deepak Chopra (not that Deepak Chopra) the Chairman and CEO of OSI Systems Inc., parent of Rapiscan and the glorified disrobing machine. Rapiscan has a joint venture with the Electronics Company of India, an Indian government enterprise, called ECIL-Rapiscan. Rapiscan insiders, including Mr. Chopra and his first cousin, Ajay Mehra, who is Executive Vice President of OSI Systems, Inc., own 15 percent of the joint venture.


Of course he had about 200 CEOs and other “business leaders” with him in that renamed “jobs trip”.

Not only that, but as ABC’s Jake Tapper notes, the outgoing director of the National Economic Council, Larry Summers, asserted at an off-camera briefing on Wednesday that a failure to pass the tax cut compromise President Obama negotiated “would significantly increase the risk” of a double-dip recession.

“If this process were to break down and a bill were not passed,” Summers said, not only would economic projections recently revised upwards not happen, “downward revisions would commence.” http://abcn.ws/gZ681W

Interesting that Clifton and Lobe are collaborating.

Neo-con narrative sidelines Palestinians
By Eli Clifton and Jim Lobe

But a closer look at the relevant cables shows a far more consistent message to Washington coming from its Arab allies: that curbing Iran and resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are inextricably linked and that the most effective way of achieving the former is make tangible progress on the latter.

Indeed, endorsements of “linkage” – the notion, accepted at the highest levels of the US military, that resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will help promote US strategic interests in the

Middle East – emerges as a recurring theme in previously confidential discussions with Arab leaders and US diplomats on how best to counter Iran’s growing regional power and deter Tehran’s nuclear program.

That’s not the message that Israel and its backers have been touting since the first batch of 220 documents was released on November 29 by WikiLeaks.


dropout - 9 December 2010

During a February 14, 2010, meeting with Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman John Kerry, Qatar Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al-thani suggested that Israel’s efforts to rally US and Arab support for a more confrontational policy towards Iran was really related to the Israel-Palestine conflict. “The Israelis,” he is reported as telling his guest, are “using Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons as a diversion from settling matters with the Palestinians”.
More from article:

Three days later, according to a cable sent on February 22, 2010, UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan warned another congressional delegation led by Nita Lowey, a strong Israel supporter in the House of Representatives, against a military attack on Iran. According to the cable, the minister ended the meeting with a “soliloquy on the importance of a successful peace process between Israel and its neighbors as perhaps the best way of reducing Iran’s regional influence.”

The fact that the Arab leaders placed so much emphasis on the importance of making progress in resolving the Palestinian-Israeli dispute clearly did not come as any surprise to US regional experts; nor would it be surprising to them if Israeli leaders and their neo-conservative backers had worked hard – as they have for the past week – to ignore or obscure that message.

Bibi and friends must be spinning like tops.

dropout - 9 December 2010

I’m always looking for that ray of hope, found this interesting:

US’s greatest contribution to the peace process has been to reveal Israeli intransigence

In light of the US failure to broker an Israeli settlement freeze, it’s clear to me now that the single most valuable contribution the United States has made to the cause of Middle East peace over the last two years was taking on the issue of settlements. If it had “won”, direct talks would now be going forward. But losing has its own rewards.

Who in their right mind can argue any longer that settling 500,000 people (and counting) on land that is “disputed”, “occupied”, “stolen” – take your pick, it doesn’t matter– makes any sense at all, or ever did .

By insisting on a settlement freeze in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, with full knowledge that he couldn’t single-handedly reverse decades of American policy, President Obama did us all, including those who want a safe home for Israelis, an enormous favor.


Also, Alex J. seems to think wikileaks is being sponsored by Soros. Titan Civil War?

Also from Teh Note email:

WORSE OFF. More than half of Americans say they are “worse off now than they were two years ago when President Barack Obama took office,” according to a new Bloomberg National Poll. The poll also found that two-thirds of Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction.

More results from the survey:

“51 percent of respondents think their situation has deteriorated, compared with 35 percent who say they’re doing better. The balance isn’t sure. Americans have grown more downbeat about the country’s future in just the last couple of months, the poll shows. The pessimism cuts across political parties and age groups, and is common to both sexes.” http://bit.ly/dZmBGU

Geez Loueez.


I did notice in hospital how very terrible CNN has become (their package of cable did not include MS nor FOX). Inescapably down market, low low low production values, no international news, hardly any breaking news and a big fat emphasis that is bad news, imo: lots of propganda plays to blacks… they should be fucing insulted, to be frank…

but here is a tid bit (vid at the site) on MSNBC via Ben Smith.

[C]able television, at its funniest, is a series of utter and outrageous non sequiturs, delivered to unfazed, possibly inattentive anchors.

And never more so than in the clip above from MSNBC, during which NBC’s veteran space correspondent Jay Barbree, who has covered every manned mission to space since the first one in 1961, lays plays for the end of the world.

“One day, Earth will not exist anymore. And if the human race is to survive, the human race is going to have to go onto other planets that they can live on,” he says, recommending “one-way” tickets to Mars.

“Fascinating stuff, as always,” says the host, Chris Jansing. “Jay Barbree, good to see you.”

Moving right along.

Wikileaks on Shell Oil, USA inside all the Nigerian ministries. And ofcourse we read everything that pertains to anything.

Oil giant Shell has a powerful grip on Nigerian politics with staff spying for them in every government department, the latest leaked U.S. diplomatic cables have revealed.

According to documents released by WikiLeaks, the Anglo-Dutch firm’s then-top executive in Nigeria Ann Pickard boasted of how it had inserted staff in key positions and knew ‘everything that was being done in those ministries’.

Shell staff were also fearful of China and Russia gaining a foothold in the oil-rich Niger Delta, a vital component of the U.S.’ energy plans.

‘Shell and the government of Nigeria are two sides of the same coin,’ said Celestine AkpoBari, of Social Action Nigeria.

‘Shell is everywhere. They have an eye and an ear in every ministry of Nigeria.

‘They have people on the payroll in every community, which is why they get away with everything. They are more powerful than the Nigerian government.’

When asked by U.S. Ambassador Robin Sanders in October last year if Pickard was concerned by China, she said she knew their offers to Nigerian officials were not considered to be good enough but claimed she had access to correspondence between China and Russia.

‘Pickard said Shell had good sources to show that their data had been sent to both China and Russia,’ the cable said.

‘She said the (government of Nigeria) had forgotten that Shell had seconded people to all the relevant ministries and that Shell consequently had access to everything that was being done in those ministries.’ ….

From 2008, Brown blunders in pledge to secure Nigeria oil.

Gordon Brown is being accused of preparing for a military adventure in Africa after he pledged to provide backing to the Nigerian security forces. His announcement prompted the collapse of a ceasefire in the oil-rich Niger Delta and helped to drive up crude oil prices on world markets.

The Prime Minister’s offer to help “tackle lawlessness” in the world’s eighth largest oil producer was immediately condemned by the main militant group in the Delta, which abandoned a two-week-old ceasefire and accused Britain of backing what it calls Nigeria’s “illegal government”. The group issued a “stern warning” to Mr Brown in an emailed statement: “Should Gordon Brown make good his threat to support this criminality for the sake of oil, UK citizens and interests in Nigeria will suffer the consequences.”

Speaking at the close on Wednesday of the meeting in Japan of the Group of Eight leading industrial nations, Mr Brown said that the UK was ready to offer the Nigerian military direct assistance to help return law and order to the southern region and to restore oil output.

Viva la Colonialism!

well it was under the Clintons that replacement, one for one, was no longer mandated for destroyed, unusable, etc., public housing.

I amnot saying it was closely observed, but at least it was the Federal law.

There is a very cute system used here as older public housing (aside from rental assitance and other programs) moves along. They build small buildings or complexes, touting all natural materials and so forth.

Great, but no where near enough of it. And here it is mostly used for the “working” poor. The indigent, those with nothing, get pt on some form of assitance, whatever out sourced private services and supposed non -profits can scrounge up, then put in motel rooms and SROs that take almost all of it.

The Republican long game on DADT

The Plum Line had a very sharp observation about DADT last week:

The White House strategy on repealing DADT was premised on minimizing the potential for a backlash by appeasing all the essential stakeholders—Congress, the military, and activists committed to repealing the policy. But by blocking repeal and allowing a judge to declare the policy unconstitutional, Republicans could sidestep the argument over an unpopular policy by turning it into one about unelected judges imposing their will on the electorate.

That strategy may seem cynical, but it ultimately fits the die-hard opposition strategy Republicans have deployed for the past two years. If DADT repeal is inevitable, they might as well make sure it occurs on terms most favorable to them—and that means being able to argue about the tyranny of activist judges, rather than the straightforward injustice of preventing patriots from serving openly simply because of who they are.

Our current political system is a lot like an endless Civil War reenactment, only with worse consequences. (And who enjoys Civil War reenactments? White male southerners, the heart of the Republican party.)

Wikileaks: Anonymous stops dropping DDoS bombs, starts dropping science

If this image is to be believed—and I have no reason not to, other than that I found it on the internet—the rebel squadrons behind Anonymous (attn. “news” hacks – that would be an entirely different group from Wikileaks and/or Wikipedia) are about to change their approach. So far, as we’ve witnessed, they have been launching point-and-click distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks at companies perceived as the enemies of Wikileaks. Those targets included Mastercard, Paypal, and Visa (companies that froze donation funding), and Amazon (which denied hosting services). The new approach suggests more sophisticated thinking. This new mission, apparently, is to actually read the cables Wikileaks has published and find the most interesting bits that haven’t been publicized yet, then publicize them.

In my opinion, this action would have far more positive impact. Anonymous often repeats the Orwell quote, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.” Looks like they decided to take those words to heart.
