Art houses: Lisbon graffiti – in pictures

The derelict buildings of Lisbon are providing an enormous blank canvas for urban artists, who are creating street art bold enough to stop the traffic. Rachel Dixon goes on a graffiti-spotting trail      Read Rachel’s story

Gee I thought it was what they TOLD him to say.

Mubarak announcement disappoints Obama administration

Washington Post – Karen DeYoung, William Branigin – ‎22 minutes ago‎

The Egyptian government blocks Twitter after thousands of protesters took to the streets of Cairo to demand an end to the 30-year-rule of President Hosni Mubarak.

Not like Moobarack ever gave signs of just vamoosing.

Oh I know!


snicker. that must be it!

ts - 1 February 2011

And its not like anything short of resignation and being brought to trial on corruption charges (with all of his cronies removed from the judiciary) would have been enough to stop the protests.

marisacat - 1 February 2011

well if he left and flew off somewhere, but I don’t think that is what Obster told him to do. Or Wisner… whomever.

A DEE lish tidbit from lucid… too good to leave on the previous thread:

You don’t know the half of it… Gergen’s bro was my college advisor – he and his wife were swingers & on top of that, had swing parties with students…

Bohemian Grove anyone? Or just Eyes Wide Shut?

BooHooHooMan - 1 February 2011

I THOUGHT I recognized lucid in that vid I got off CollegeAdvisorSwingParties.com!!!

God, that one move, man,

BooHooHooMan - 1 February 2011

The best part was as lucid turned to face the camera, and, like a boom clearing the deck, knocked the gathered awestruck faculty right off their feet!

mattes - 1 February 2011

I’m just greatful, no Tom, Dick or Harry had a video camera in the 70’s.

BooHooHooMan - 1 February 2011

Or DID They? 😯 😆 😉

mattes - 1 February 2011

Well, I was the one with the cameras in the 80’s….but I was ASSURED…..that VHS was destroyed.

catnip - 1 February 2011

One word: Betamax.

I believe those are actually fossilized now.

BooHooHooMan - 1 February 2011

Well, once Lucid made the scene,
they had to go to the whole wide screen format. 😉 The man is gifted. LOL.

hmmm…welllllllll, have been pondering and decided, okay ….I’ll be a Huckleberry to tin milliners everywhere, and admit that I find the unprecedented “US” weather rather convenient for current events – just like the near unprecedented DC snow dump in early 2003, as the lies were being cooked up to bomb the fuck out of Iraq – ….like Shake and Bake …did Ma nature haz help? …..would like to say the odds are against that,….but I’m not even sure anymore…I would like to know what the fuck HAARP is up to,….I mean, not like it’s a make believe entity, …not like it isn’t fucking with electro magnetic frequencies to see what they are capable of, …not like billions (I’m guessing) haven’t been poured into that “Project” ………..

and yeah, I have been thinking about the fact that HAARP presumably came to adulthood around the same time as an enormous “US” blackout, and unprecedented killer heat waves in Europe, in the summer of 2003.

Lastly – cuz I know some lurkers reading this may be busting gaskets as some dumb fool like me, contradicts Saint Al’s proclamations (of both “Faith in the “US”” and “Science”) – not to say Global Warming isn’t at all involved either, ….jus sayin …what the fuck is HAARP up to? Where the fuck is that TRANSPARENCY? …How much has it cost us, …don’t we get a detailed receipt?

marisacat - 1 February 2011

The NY black out was the first, next was London, a large swathe so of London. Then Copenhagen, and Rome…

I forget the order of C and R, which was last. It happened all in pretty close sequence weeks a few months…

I would nto hve known of C except for a Danish friend who called me, I did not land on in the media…

diane - 1 February 2011

France ……

as I recollect the “US” blackout was blamed on an Ohio powergrid but never actually explained, as the unrelenting violence on Iraq, putrid Medicare Bill, Unemployment Extensions (REVOKED), and Failed Mars Missions, variously, took center stage….

catnip - 1 February 2011

Do you have to go out in that? Can you take a snow day?

Madman in the Marketplace - 1 February 2011

we’ll see how it looks in the morning.

“Why? Because there are more Islamist extremist groups in Canada than Mexico,” Lieberman told reporters.

Terrorists to the north…drugs cartels to the south. Oh no!

He will never stop our TerrorGeese. Never!

marisacat - 1 February 2011

I’ve heard some divisions of your TerraGeese look like maple leaves, floating over the border…

We will be correcting that.

Leaves will need passports. Visas. One on one screening. Ex-ray examination. AND they will ahve to take their shoes off.

catnip - 1 February 2011

The US so-called authorities obviously have no idea just how stinky geese toes are. They’re little WMD all on their very own!

Angry arab:

Obama to Mubarak: License to Murder the Egyptian people

As soon as I saw the defiant tone and substance of Mubarak’s speech, I realized that he is not speaking for himself but for the US/Israeli sponsors. Israel erred before the Arab people by exposing her intense panic and fear from the prospect of an Arab democracy next door. Of course, Obama would take note and he consulted with his key adviser on the Middle East, Netanyahu.

I just read the speech by Obama: it confirmed my suspicion, that basically Mubarak was permitted by the US to do with the Egyptian people as he would like. Every drop of blood that is spilled in Egypt from this day onwards should be blamed on Obama because he has embraced this new strategy of letting Mubarak defy the popular will of the Egyptian people.

I don’t trust the Egyptian army: the top brass is hand picked by the US/Israel and can be easily bought off by a combination of bribes, gadgets, and perks. They could care less about the Egyptian people. This is part of the ruling group of this tyrant.

The speech by Obama was a not-so-coded language that let Mubarak do what he wish: the talk about transition means that he was basically told to stay in power, because Israel really freaked out at the prospect of Egypt without Mubarak. How dare Obama talk about technology for the Egyptian youth when his speech did not utter one word about how Mubarak is silencing and restricting the technology of the youth of people. Make no mistake about it: this could be like the 1953 Operation Ajax in Iran.

The US is now arranging for a coup against the will of the Egyptian people. It requires utmost vigilance and steadfastness and thus far those qualities have been abundant among the Egyptian people. This move by Obama towards Egypt can be described as criminal because it will lead to blood on the streets. I wonder if Obama during his talk with Mubarak discussed numbers like: just don’t kill more than 50 or 60 a day, or something like that. His unprincipled cynicism reminds me of the conspiracies of the 1950s.

I am so glad that I resisted all efforts by my liberal and leftist friends who were urging me to vote for this personification of the Bush Doctrine.

featuring the Mormon Dolt in Aspic now.

Mittens is mouthing the same vacuous Ob-shit AND agrees with Biden on Mubarak. What a fuckin’ putz.
When asked , Literally repeats Biden word for word:
“I Wouldn’t characterize him as a dictator, either.”

Well, they may need elections in Egypt, but we certainly don’t need them here.

Hard Day’s Night is on….CNN, MSNBBC or PLDHD???

9. lucid - 1 February 2011

LOL Spitzer had on some ‘radical Islamic cleric’ who was saying that the only peaceful time in history when people had their basic needs met has been when sharia law was employed! And he predicted that not only Egypt, but the entire world would eventually come under sharia law!

Really, CNN needs to have this debate?

AJ panel w/ video:

Two years after an historic victory that saw the first African-American elected president of the US, Barack Obama has come under pressure. The nation’s love affair with “Yes, We Can” was short lived, and it was not long before the chant turned to delivery rather than promise.

With crises at home dominating the agenda, what happened to Obama’s promise of a new dawn in US-world relations?

With ongoing occupations in Afghanistan and Iraq, proxy wars in Pakistan and Yemen, volatile relations with Iran, or the floundering Middle East peace process; how has the man who offered the Muslim world a new beginning handled the burning issues on the international stage? Is the US’s global supremacy coming to an end?

Joining us as our guests: Roger Hodge, the author of Mendacity of Hope: Barack Obama and the Betrayal of American Liberalism; Dr Stefan Halper, the former foreign policy advisor to the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations; Ralph Nader, an independent presidential candidate; As’ad Abu Khalil, the founder of the Angry Arab news blog.

Interviewees: Jeremy Scahill, the national security correspondent at The Nation; and Matt Hoh, a former Marine Captain.

This episode of Empire aired from Wednesday, February 2, 2011.

Off to watch it…

Tony Blair has described Hosni Mubarak, the beleaguered Egyptian leader, as “immensely courageous and a force for good” and warned against a rush to elections that could bring the Muslim Brotherhood to power.

“leadership = “circle jerk”

mattes - 1 February 2011

The man needs a twitter account. So behind the talking points.

catnip - 1 February 2011

Yes. When I saw a blurb on CNN about Piers Morgan interviewing Blair, my reaction was, “why”?

Part of his charm, frankly.
Free country , laugh-stockingly drowning in ever weaker obfuscating attempts at Israeli propaganda and all….so predictable, that is:


That would be The U.S. State Department.
As p u b l i s h e d by WikiLeaks.
Of course, Drudge knows that.
But Gahd he’s easy to fuck with –
Oo Look! Haji’s under the bed!
How about a little war head , Matt?

Telegraph also has a big story out on secret 9/11 plotters. via Wikileaks, a cable from US Emb in Doha to Homelandia.

So DK is going into Weather now.

Surely after their efforts really drove Obama’s Rebuilding New Orleans on Day One and Obama’s delivery, THAT UNPRECEDENTED SUCCESS… in Haiti, all will be well.

Surely the U.S. is ready to stand tall with the Australians now in their time of need, too.

Citigroup takes EMI from Hands

US bank writes off £2.2bn of loans to indebted music group

Guy Hands was a Goldman Sachs alumn…the most recent iteration in the Bankster’s 50 YEAR LONG game of Musical Chairs , where they’d merger and demerger and remerger the label and install some hitter who’d proceed anew to loot the company, cripple it with debt, fuck the artists, and stick the taxpayers with write down’s crying “poor mouth”.

This is the same outfit that Sir Paul and the Beatles sued in 2005 for fucking them out of $50 Million Dollars in royalties.
Ah, yes..royalties. Go figure, Sir Paul.
They settled quietly with terms….

An ominous tone coming out of Egypt, all of a sudden “thousands” of “pro” moo supporters, and lots of missing relatives coinciding with the tubes being partially turned on.

Who would know how many were detained, or disappeared with the press black outs that have gone on.

from the Guardian Blog:

About 150 angry relatives are gathered outside the army HQ in Alexandria, desperate for information about their missing relatives. The army has not produced any lists of those they have detained, and have not allowed anyone into the base to visit the detainees. We tried to gain access, but were refused. One old woman told me she had been there since Saturday, looking for her son, and had no news. The relatives are very concerned about the treatment the detainees are receiving.
