“In Frank Miller’s influential 1986 series The Dark Knight Returns, Batman drags an unconscious perpetrator up to a rooftop, and hangs him upside down with his eyes covered. When the bad guy wakes up, Batman begins to question him, and then uncovers the guy’s eyes. Hundreds of feet above the city, the bad guy starts to scream in terror, prompting our hero to ruminate smugly about how much fun he’s having.

Last year, in the film Olympus Has Fallen, the American agent played by Gerard Butler stabbed a North Korean bad guy in the knee to get him to talk. The audience at the preview I attended cheered enthusiastically.”

Torture Is Good

“But the German exposé  showed Tor providing the opposite of anonymity: it singled out users for total NSA surveillance, potentially sucking up and recording everything they did online.”

Tor was developed, built and financed by the US military-surveillance complex. Tor’s original — and current — purpose is to cloak the online identity of government agents and informants while they are in the field: gathering intelligence, setting up sting operations, giving human intelligence assets a way to report back to their handlers — that kind of thing

 

Peeling the onion: Almost everyone involved in developing Tor was (or is) funded by the US government

Journalists Accuse White House of Politically-Driven Suppression of News

Over three dozen journalist organizations including the Radio Television Digital News Association, National Press Foundation, and the Society of Professional Journalists, have asked the President to drop the “excessive controls” on public information by federal agencies, branding it “politically driven suppression of news and information about federal agencies.”

There has been an ongoing tension between broadcast, print and online journalists and the Obama administration, with complaints that the Administration has limited access to events, while providing its own “coverage” through official channels.

For those who’ve been drunk and tied up in a basement this past decade, the fascism of the federal government is becoming harder and harder to disguise. Fascism is corporate/state partnership to fuck over the powerless common people – like you. Welcome to Mussolini’s America. Grow up and take a stand for real freedom, not this prepackaged flag waving, orchestrated mindlessness they feed the rubes. It requires knowledge, vigilance, logic and courage.

Unless the people say NO, they will seize more power until the America you once knew is unrecognizable, except for the red, white and blue propaganda banners littering the slums.

So you thought Pando might be different?

Ted Rall:
Why Are 6000+ Reporters Keeping the Government’s Non-Secret?

Until last week I was working this story for Pando Daily, where I was a staff writer and cartoonist. We intended to publish the name — not to endanger him (which in any case would not have been possible since Langley had yanked him off his post), but to take a stand for adversarial media.

Journalists ought to publish news wherever they find it, whatever it is, damn the consequences. Credible media organizations don’t protect government secrets. They don’t obey spy agencies. Real journalists don’t cooperate with government — any government, any time, for any reason. My editor and I believed that, by demonstrating a little fearlessness, we might inspire other media outfits to grow a pair and stop sucking up to the government.

There is no longer a “we.” Pando fired me over the weekend, along with the investigative journalist David Sirota.

Case of James Risen sets up showdown over reporter rights
‘chills journalistic activity’

The US fascist war on journalism ramps up.  The empire is now rapidly descending toward totalitarianism and arbitrary use of force against any and all enemies, everywhere, even at the New York Times.

These people are still fighting WW2 in Ukraine, and the USA just entered on the side of Adolf Hitler.  As they say, “You can’t write this shit.”  It’s too absurd, couched in a Big Lie, and now reaching genocidal proportions.  The Odessa mass killing spree was accompanied by hate speech on Twitter and elsewhere about extermination and comparing Russian speakers to insects.  This is the most disturbing can of worms the US has opened in a long time, and even Israel had to take pause and reject further escalation, which would help empower these neo-nazi maniacs even further.

If fascism is the merger of corporations and state, then this is iron clad, unholy fascism, and nothing beside–

“There was CIA involvement through a company called Mega Oil. They were shipping in arms under the cover of oil tools.”

…CIA, MI6 and British Petroleum engineered a coup d’état, overthrowing a nation’s elected president who was “not favorable to BP.” The corporation’s former vice president, Leslie Abrahams … was working for BP, he was also an operative for MI6, British intelligence.

Lap Dancers, the CIA, Payoffs and BP’s Deepwater Horizon

Question: Why in the world was BP allowed to use this insanely dangerous “quick-dry” cement just after a failure in the Caspian? Answer: A cover-up—via threats, beatings, arrests, bribery, perjury and the complicity of the U.S. State Department.

I learned of the prior blowout only because of a coded message from the Caspian Sea received from one very nervous eyewitness.
