Over 70 Syrian tribes declare war on US-backed forces, foreign troops in northern Syria

US proxy forces and troops are illegally occupying Syrian territory. This is a violation of the UN Charter, of International Law, and yet the US as the bully of the world has VETO power when it comes to illegal aggression.

It’s a bullshit PR stunt.

107 Nobel Laureate Attack on Greenpeace Traced Back to Biotech PR Operators

Washington Press Club hosted a hit job on Greenpeace the other day…

“Some NGOs were invited: Really?  Why not Greenpeace—the subject of this campaign?”

Nor was the security person just anyone. Schwab and Cray recognised him as Jay Byrne. Byrne is the former head of corporate communications for Monsanto (1997-2001).

 

“Golden Rice” Bullshit Claims Debunked:

This latest PR assault by Monsanto et al. demonises activists for allegedly stopping the introduction of the miracle cure, Golden Rice. This claim is nonsense, as Greenpeace and other activists have no regulatory power in the real world.

Their “Golden Rice” simply doesn’t fucking work…

Genetically modified Golden Rice falls short on lifesaving promises

“The simple fact is that after 24 years of research and breeding, Golden Rice is still years away from being ready for release.”

The Ukraine coup regime has resumed its assault on Eastern Ukraine, never intending to honor peace agreements. If Russia does not come to the aid of the separatists, they may be wiped out, 4th Reich style.

THE LONE RANGER

I was suckered into sitting through this thing at the $2 theater.  We had to waste some time and sober up for a while.

Everything you’ve heard about it is true.  Abysmally bad, an insult to humanity, really.  It tasted like a soup with ice cream and marmalade and pork and garlic, hot sauce, chocolate syrup, chipotle, beer, ginger, confectioners sugar – blended all up while John Phillip Sousa music blares at 11.  In other words, something like this:

I felt like a giant Mickey Rat tortured me for six hours.  In other words a fun time for all, and some others in the theater called it a “great movie,” to their impressionable children no less.

In the words of the prophet, Bill Hicks, “Boy, is my thumb not on the pulse of America.”

They appeared to try.  So it was difficult to figure why it is so unwatchable.  It doesn’t know if it’s a slapstick comedy or a chilling drama about genocide, and the corporate scum at the top of the chain don’t really give a fuck.  Perhaps it was re-imagined by a computer program and directed by some experimental DARPA funded director-bot.  At least if it was a robot in beta testing we could cut the guy some slack, but I have a feeling this hack is still consuming our precious oxygen.

After an uncharacteristically swift (and passionate) response to the bad Lone Ranger reviews I posted here yesterday, I figured I’d look a little more into this masked man and his crow-accessorized companion.

Some critics are calling it genuinely subversive, misunderstood and other sorts of praises.

Luke Thompson:

“This will not likely come as a shock to anyone, but lest there was any doubt, yes, it adds fantasy elements and makes many of the major characters insane, while not being remotely accurate to real history. What may surprise you is that there is a legitimate in-story reason for this, one that also accounts for its mood-swings, tonal shifts, and occasional plot holes that the story quite deliberately calls your attention to.”

With  the Tomatometer in freefall at 23% and with audiences at 68%, quite the split, we have something to think about here.

I’m inclined to listen to what Native Americans think of it before taking the word of middle aged white guys.

Native Appropriations:

“It’s 2.5 hours of a film with an identity crisis, not knowing if it’s supposed to be funny, campy, dramatic, “authentic,” or what. At points it was very hard to separate the stereotypical and hurtful from the bad script, bad editing, and bad character development of the movie itself.”

Apparently its defenders are pulling a Pee Wee Herman:
