John Kiriakou: When You Cross the 'Don't Ask Don't Tell about Torture' :Line

Here is One Good Thing you can do for the world today:

Question:  If we do not exercise our conscience, will we lose it, collectively, as a country? Some among us who  appear to have no conscience to lose…

And then there are the rare individuals who ac - without fear and aware of the risks - out of conscience.  While no one involved in the waterboarding of terror suspects has ever faced criminal charges, John Kiriakou has been convicted and sentenced to 30 months in prison.  His life is ruined.

All for the "crime" of having talked honestly to journalists about what happened and who did it.

 The prosecutors did not claimed that John talked to any foreign government, passed any government documents or accepted funds from anyone hostile to the United States. Because they couldn’t.

 John Kiriakou, a hero to civil libertarians, spoke Truth to Power – not just any ‘Power’ but the US National Security apparatus that keeps America locked down, buttoned up afraid of the acts of  conscience that keep us free.  The irony is extraordinary. For more than 14 years, John worked in the field and at home, under conditions of great peril and stress and at great personal sacrifice, dedicating himself to protecting America and Americans from harm at home and abroad.

Not Your Grandfather's Jury:Has America's Mistrust of Reason Contaminated the Legal Waters?

Oh, what a tangled web we weave when we first practice to deceive -Sir Walter Scott, in his poem "Marmion" (1808)

Perhaps both defense and prosecution ought to have looked a little closer at the 'kandy-colored tangerine-flake stream-lined 'Expert Witnesses' called to testify in the trial of Mohamed Mohamud.

That said, while both blood and ink are still wet, a second glance at the jury selection proccess might be in order.  This case requires a lot of 'vertical' as well as 'horizontal understanding.  It demands of a jury the capacity to set emotions aside - but not off the table entirely - and look at the story from reason's perspective.  Once the fundamental algorithms come into focus, empathy is called for...and plenty of it.

Trouble is that the one thing the American Left and Right have in common is a distrust bordering on contempt for the intellect.

'Brave New Word': What 'Jihad' Really Means

What's Your Jihad?

myjihad.org/

What is in your heart and mind the drives you, inspires you, transforms your world?

Me? Well, researching stories, lining up guests, producing 'Air Cascadia', for one.  It takes a lot longer to 'write short' than to 'write long'.  Mark Twain famously said, "I would have written you a shoter letter but I didn't have time."  Alternately, I could also say 'Squirrel Farm', a living, breathing 'Food Forest' and a 3-D paradigm for a permatural approach to life.  And my answer to the question, 'What's your Jihad?' might be as simple as 'Kindness': I strive to be kind.

So, what's your Jihad? And those close to you, friends, family, co-workers, ask them What's your Jihad? Get that beautiful, forbidden, hot-button word out in the Loud. Voice by  voice by voice by voice...it adds up to a clarion call for understanding, communication and sharing our common truth.

The more you use it, the more you defuse it.

Al Qaeda Goes to Hollywood!

“High in the coastal mountains of Lincoln County, three men -- Mohamed Mohamud and two undercover FBI agents posing as al-Qaida terrorists -- readied for an explosion.

One of the agents, using the pseudonym "Hussein," handed Mohamud a cell phone to detonate what he thought was a 3-pound bomb loaded into a backpack. The men had set the pack on the ground, downhill from their perch, on that cloud-covered Thursday: Nov. 4, 2010.

 Out of sight, FBI agents had snatched up the pack and switched the dummy bomb loaded inside with a real one. After a few failed attempts to dial the number that would ignite the bomb, Mohamud's phone rang through.”   (from The Oregonian, January 16th, 2013)

 It’s the whole Package: Action: The Feds drive too fast on their way to bomb practice; Mohammed complains he can’t study for finals  because the motion makes him carsick), Suspense: Whoops! Wrong bomb! Okay, this next bomb is real ..Jesus! That was hella loud, dude; I nearly shit myself. Love Interest:  Language problem, people.  In Somalia we call it Romance.  You Jingo-Military-Imperialist bullies call it rape.  In the end love conquers all (Lindsay Lohan would be perfect; how much did they say the bail would be?) Pathos: When Mohammed can’t come up with the scratch to pay his rent, for some weird reason the Feds-dressed-up-like-al-Qaeda-terrorist-co-conspirators just happen to have the money right here…so, Okay, maybe it wasn’t really sad  after all, but for a moment… He could always sleep in the bomb-van.

A loud boom rocked the hillside.

"How do you feel?" Hussein asked Mohamud.

"I feel good, Allahu Akbar (praise be to God)," Mohamud said.

Lost ion Transmission: The BPA Gets Bitch-Slapped for the 'Worst Pick-up Line'

The Petition:

We Petition the Obama Administration To:

Remove United States District Attorney Carmen Ortiz from office for overreach in the case of Aaron Swartz.

It is too late to do anything for Aaron Swartz, but the who used the powers granted to them by their office to hound him into a position where he was facing a ruinous trial, life in prison and the ignominy and shame of being a convicted felon; for an alleged crime that the supposed victims did not wish to prosecute.

A prosecutor who does not understand proportionality and who regularly uses the threat of unjust and overreaching charges to extort plea bargains from defendants regardless of their guilt is a danger to the life and liberty of anyone who might cross her path.

Money, Money Everywhere, and Not a Drop to Drink...

As a nation of consumers, as opposed to citizens of a nation.  (Note how you can take that first phrase, 'Citizens  of a Nation' and plug in the word, 'consumers': 'Consumers of a Nation' - which accurately describes Americans. 

Last year, Americans witnessed an explosion in million-dollar checks from a handful of uber-wealthy people underwriting political campaigns and election ads. In 2012, there were also numerous efforts to make it harder for Americans to exercise their fundamental right to vote through restrictive voter ID legislation and limits on voter registration.

 That is why the weekend of January 19, 2013, is so important. That coming weekend marks two dates significant to American democracy. It includes the federal holiday marking the birth of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., which commemorates the civil rights leader who worked to secure voting rights for all Americans. It also marks the anniversary of the devastating U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which opened the floodgates for big money and helped make the 2012 elections the most expensive in the history of the world.

 On January 19, activists in more than 60 towns and cities across the country will participate in a national day of action through rallies, teach-ins, and conferences to move closer to taking back our democracy.

 The Bonneville Power Administration ‘s deadline for public comment on massive transmission towers in the Gorge is  March 1.  Activists, property right voices and just about anyone doomed to live beneath the shadow of the behemoth want more time.

  At least 90 days.   The transmission line is part of its I-5 Corridor Reinforcement Plan when BPA hosts the first of six public meetings tonight to discuss the construction.

 BPA is deciding between four proposals to extend power to residents, with its "central alternative" as a 79-mile, 500-kilovolt transmission line from Castle Rock to Troutdale across the Columbia River. However, the agency's plans have come under attack from some local residents, as the planned power towers will be within 500 feet of 327 property owners.

Drone of Drones: Ray McGovern Deconstructs John 'Dark Side' Brennan

Drones On The Range...

Weeks before President Obama announced that he intended to appoint  Chuck Hagel to be the next Secretary of Defense, the reaction from Progressives was electrifying.  The predictable blowback , of course, was that it electrified the Rightwing Punitorium, America’s echo chamber – there’s a lot of space between the ears echoes to bounce around in. There had to be a catch.

And there was. Obama’s next move was nominating John ‘Dark Side’ Brennan to be the next CIA chief.  This the same guy who, back in 2008 prompted 200 psychologists to urging him not to select John Brennan to head the CIA because of his open support of 'dark-side' policies.   Brennan withdrew his name the next day, and The New York Times explained the move as a reaction to 'concerns he was intimately linked to controversial CIA programs authorized by President Bush.'

  My guest today, Ray McGovern is himself a veteran CIA analyst. He has scrutinized Brennan's backing of torture and drone killings. Read his interview "Obama's and Brennan's 'Kill List'" .

 McGovern points out that   "Brennan is now the administration’s strongest advocate of extrajudicial killing of U.S. citizens by drones. As for civilian deaths from CIA drone strikes in Pakistan, Brennan made the preposterous claim [in June 2011] that, over the previous year, 'there hasn’t been a single collateral death' from CIA drone strikes there."

This week we learn that some TriMet  drivers work as many as 20 or more hours in a 24-hour period. 

This problem is not a local phenomena nor is it limited to the occupation itself - the only point here is that working brutal hours at the wheel of a large public vehicle presents dangers not associated with other fields of employment.

The real issue behind the headlines is this:  America is stranded in a false 'Recession', known to Wall Streeters as a 'jobless recovery.  Government numbers show that Americans productivity has never been higher.  No, Virginia, this does not mean that workers are just crazy in love with their jobs.  What it means is that fear is driving people to work harder than is healthy because they live in terror of losing their jobs, their rattletrap health insurance, their homes...in short, their lives.  And banks are still enjoying those TARP funds that rained down on them like mana from the sky a few years back.  Corporate CEOs aren't hiring because form them it's a buyers market.  and they aren't buying.  So we are going to be living with increasing deadly incidents  caused by employee exhaustion. 

 Public Transportation Managers in civilized nations would see the situation for what it is - because that is what they are being paid huge salaries to do - and they would immediately take steps to change the structure.  What that is not where we live or who we are.  So it is that the  TriMet  general manager has responded by calling  for an internal investigation.

I don't know what more the general manager needs to know.: if the problem is that there are so few drivers that the ones on staff are working 20 hour shifts, then the solution is to hire more drivers.  There always seems to be enough money to pay management to make all the smart moves, but not enough to maintain safe schedules.

Part of  TriMet's  approach is to "fight driver fatigue"...with what? Magic swords?

Julian Assange Speaks

 

WikiLaks founder Julian Assange last addressed the press and supporters from the

Monarchs and religious leaders,  generally step to the podium  around this time of year.  So why not Julian Assange?    You might be a Wall street Wunderkind soaking up the sun in laundered drug cartel investments, You might be a  a 17 year old German Anarchacker  who doesn't know day from night, swinging through the cyberjungle  ; you might be a lunatic-fringe tea party wingnut housewife in

San Diego sitting at a lap top in a state of the art kitchen... it's all the same. we all love/hate Assange. 

Today Assange  will deliver a message to the world from a balcony at the Ecuadoran Embassy in London.

The Left so often cannibalizes its own.  We are nudged into the anti-Assange contingent, forgetting what we saw happening in Iraq thanks to Assange's Wikileaks.  So  Thank you, Julian Assange – and Feliz Navidad.

The plaza reopened to the public on Monday afternoon after an inmate work crew “completely cleaned” it, county spokeswoman Jennifer Inman said.

 

New signs posted on the plaza clearly inform people that camping and cooking are prohibited on the property. The signs also say the area is closed between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. unless someone receives written permission to be there during those hours.

 

“The rules aren’t new or different. They’re just expressed more clearly than they were before,” Inman said.

 

A protest group known as Safe Legally Entitled Emergency Places to Sleep, or SLEEPS, spent two nights on the plaza before voluntarily leaving last Wednesday afternoon.

 The county fenced off the area shortly after the group’s departure — acting on an order issued during the protest by County Administrator Liane Richardson. She said it needed to be temporarily shut down “to ensure the health and safety and uninterrupted county operations.”

 Richardson told protesters last week that human feces had been found in a planted area on the plaza.

Warrantless Spying Bill Extension Through Without Debate

 

The Senate is about to vote on an extension of the controversial FISA Amendments Act -- the unconstitutional law that allows the NSA to spy on Americans speaking to people abroad without a warrant. Yet you wouldn't know it by watching CSPAN because the Senate isn't debating it.

 

The law was set to expire on December 31, 2012 to ensure thorough review. But Senate leaders have so far refused to schedule any time on the Senate floor for debate or consideration of vital privacy-protecting amendments. Worse, they won't even tell the American public when they're going to vote on it.

 

 

 

 

 

#%@^&%$@#

 

   

Does the post-election outpouring of secessionist fervor exemplify a passing fancy? Or does it rather suggest a deeper, even revolutionary, change in the American political terrain?

The immediate trigger was Barack Obama’s victory, which heralded a new coalition of voters—women, people of color and young people—who voted for the Democratic candidate at such a rate that, given the prevailing demographic trends, the Democratic Party appears to possess a major advantage for the foreseeable future.

After the election, right-wing activists immediately called for Texas to secede from the union. This echoed a declaration by progressive Vermonters, first made in 2003, to explore ways to opt out of a country that they deemed too reactionary.

A November 9 petition asking the Obama administration to “peacefully grant the state of Texas to withdraw from the United States of America” has garnered nearly 120,000 signatures to become by far the most popular petition on WhiteHouse.gov. Additional secession petitions have come in from the other 49 states, with those from Louisiana, Florida and Georgia amassing more than 30,000 signatories apiece.

One thing is certain: a bloc of Southern states that once were essential to any Democratic majority—from Wilson to Clinton, from the onset of World War I to the defeat of Al Gore in 2000—is no longer. Texas, Mississippi, North Carolina: The Democrats now can lose every one of these states in a presidential race and still win handily. Obama just did. The “Southern strategy” is gone.

Both parties’ wooing of the Deep South proved enormously beneficial to many states, such as Alabama, that began to split away from the Democrats in the 1970s and today are wholly alienated from the Democratic Party. Alabamans receive $2 in federal spending for every $1 they pay in taxes; this dramatic imbalance is an artifact of a dysfunctional U.S. Electoral College that encouraged the leaders of both major parties to court Southern states.

 

With the South now politically unhinged from the process of deciding the presidential election, calls for secession are the first evidence of the new panic on the Right. Facing the specter of more liberal Supreme Court justices and a political logic that will slowly extinguish political incentives to deliver federal aid to the Southern states, extremists in the region have resurrected a 19th century strategy. Playing the only political card they have left, they are threatening to exit the nation.

 

The talk is loudest in Texas chiefly because of the state’s size, national clout and pride of place. Admittedly, the Texas secessionists are loony. The most vocal organization, the Texas Nationalist Movement, states baldly: “The fact of the matter is, that there cannot be a union between those that esteem the principles of Karl Marx over the principles of Thomas Jefferson. Here in Texas, we esteem those principles of Thomas Jefferson—that all political power’s inherent in the people.”

Bite Me

 

The Portland City Council  will consider a resolution Thursday to move a public vote on water fluoridation from the May 2014 ballot to the May 2013 ballot. It's likely to pass, like it or not.  Because our elected representatives are flagrantly ignoring the will of the people on this one.  And if they are willing to pull it this time, count on them to do it again…After all, they know what’s best for our teeth.

Today’s vote decides the date and the fate of the fluoride ballot. 

Fluoridation opponents prefer a May 2014 vote to a May 2013 vote. The extra time would allow them to set up an independent review committee to study both sides of the issue, preferably with the cooperation of pro-fluoridation Upstream Public Health.

 

Saying "no" to such an unnecessary delay might irritate fluoridation opponents, but it wouldn't violate the public's trust. There isn’t any trust to violate…

The Flying Gunman - Regarding Adam...

This past week twwenty children at a Connecticut school were shot in cold blood.  The shooter also smoked the human evidence as well, blowing away his Mum and himself in the fusilade.  He wasn't in touch with his estranged father. Sweet estrangement lie down by me.

Tiny little six year-olds and their teachers.

In the picture launched directly into the retinas of the millions who could not turn their eyes away from this trainwreck of a soul, the shooter's face, Adam Lanza's face appears to be astonished at something no one else but he can see. It is the same face seen in Russian icons of unknown provenance; stripped of connections to the world, long, pale, crowned with a tangled thatch of brambles.  His eyes are enormous, cornered, swollen with terrible things they have seen or scenes his imagination has served up. His mouth with silent, sensual lips seems unfit for human speech - maybe angels  or the citizens of a surreal island forever under sail.

But the NRA is right:  Guns don't kill people; people kill people.  to claim otherwise is to retreat into the hazy American mind of Endless Childhood, where no one is responsible and there are never any consequences - apart from the bodies left behind in the Real World.  But no.  Americans are children, creating bad things ouyt of bad ideas and then feigning helpless in the ugly face of their mindless machines. People make guins.  People sell guns and people buy them.  Legislators pass laws alowing the ggun to become the constant companion, the romantic's erotic dream of sex and death; thje American Dilemma: Give me sex or give me death. 

Perhaps it began in the psychosis of Vietnam when soldiers were induced to fetishize their weapons: name them, sleep with them, stroke them,  bath them in oil and tears and blood.

Where would Jesus poop?

earthfirstnews.wordpress.com/

 

 America discovered the biggest landfill in the universe long ago…What it has not discovered  - yet – YET – is an ad campaign guaranteed to sell the idea to The People.  Yes, yes, The People will buy just about anything, still it is the moon and Americans are romantics at heart…so hmmmmm….this just might work.

 “I wouldn’t say we’re bombing the Moon,” said Maria Zuber, an MIT geophysics professor and the principal investigator of NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) “They’re not bombs, they’re satellites. Satellites are deorbited from the Earth frequently in controlled deorbits, where they land in the ocean as opposed to on land where they could cause harm to people and structures. We’re taking similar steps.”

As the saying goes, “One small step for …” Well you know how it goes.

 

The two lunar spacecraft being deorbited in this case are named Ebb and Flow. Launched in September 2011, they’ve been orbiting the Moon since January 2012, in tandem (one following the other), circling in a close, low-altitude trajectory, mapping the Moon’s gravitational field more accurately than ever before. (And taking advantage of that gravitational field!)

 But now their primary mission is complete and they’re running out fuel. NASA doesn’t want to leave them orbiting as space junk around the Moon (Oh no.  MASA would rather turn it into ‘Moon Garbage’), and doesn’t want them to crash uncontrolled onto the Moon either, where they run the (admittedly low) risk of colliding with one of the Moon’s numerous historic landing sites, (Like a plastic baggie full of astronaut poop) including the Apollo manned missions and previous Russian unmanned landers.

 So on Friday morning Eastern time, NASA will performed two controlled burns, one for each spacecraft, that will put them on the right path to collide on Monday evening with an area well away from the historical sites, specifically a large crater rim that forms a lunar mountain.

Comments

membership means more

your threat of quitting your membership gives me two options for analysis:

1) you gave money to Theresa via KBOO.

2) if Theresa died tomorrow, you'd give up your membership.

my interpretation

1) that's cool, man.  you support community-based radio based solely on your dedication to one weekly half-hour show. that demonstrates that Theresa's voice represents/intrigues you (and many, many others); however you don't feel represented by any one of the other 500 people who volunteer their time and energy in the 24/7 endevour, and you don't value the input (and miraculous existence!) of the other 5-10,000 members and ten times as many listeners; neither do you support the KBOO mission of including as many underrepresented voices as possible on the air, with natural turnover, schedule changes and opportunities as new people arrive.  Membership gives you the power to affect the decision-making, which is why you gave money to Theresa via KBOO; and, by golly, you will do everything in your power to keep her on the air, and you want the KBOO website visitors to know how you feel when they read the comments.  You'd even like them to join you in your fight.

2) wow.

my opinion

Personally, Theresa's show is one of my  favourites and there are plenty of shows that I not only don't like or don't listen to, but also complain about out loud.  It's my radio station, and, like my family, I will not be quiet when they need to shape up or ship out.

writing inflammatory statements on the webpage will remain simply that: inflammatory statements with a reaction or two from trolls (see the 20 pages of Anonymous written about me because of the audio I submitted that Jenka edited), which, in the end, result in: NOTHING.  If you want to chat with others online, that's fine, but you should know that nothing said here is considered in the Committee meetings. It's just an informal public forum, not policy binding.

my advice

Instead of threatening us (volunteers, members, listeners and our very existence), why not use your valuable internet time to phrase it as, for example, a question to which one of us could easily respond:  "Have there been any changes to Theresa's show?  I noticed lately that it has been preemented or even cut.  It is my favourite show. [I fear Air Cascadia will take its place--not necessary but very telling that you chose Chris' page to write it--ed.]. "  You can copy the question to Theresa's email (though I know from experience she doesn't respond) and/or print it out and put it in her cubby hole at the station. And/or show up to the meetings.  And/or call Theresa during her show--she takes calls, you know.  Ask her if she'll train or mentor you to do the same kind of work she does.

p.s.  Air Cascadia basically is the AM News is Chris Andreae: i was engineering {i'm flattered that you liked it}and was very sad when it was cut--but that is the way of the station; we adhere and adapt to the ever-fluctuating needs of the larger community--but i watched, with great pleasure, as it morphed into Air Cascadia.  Though i adore Dennis Bernstein, 15 less minutes of his voice is no skin off my back. 

Highting!

The anchor news program

The anchor news program Democracy Now, conveiniently aired at 11 AM so that all could tune in was moved to 7 AM with a result that most if not all of the people who work nights won't be tuning in as they are still sleeping. Also missed the 40th anniversary bash as it was inconveinently held from 4 to 10 Pm, on a weekday, which would exclude anyone working swing from attending unless they took a day off. Why couldn't this have been held on a Saturday or Sunday?
Air Cascadia is a very rough and unpolished program that leaves me tuning to OPB or just turning it off.
The choppy, emergent voice of Cris Andreae is certainly a large part in that.
If it is true that Press Watch will be axed for this then it will be an easy decision to withhold future pledges from this listener.

What happened to Presswatch?

Is Air Cascadia taking over what Therisa has been doing? If so, I may give up my membership. First, the am news gets axed to accomodate Democracy Now, now is Presswatch going under the plow?
