The U.S. House of Representatives impeachment inquiry hearings picked up steam this week, as nine current and former U.S. officials testified on President Donald Trump's controversial dealings with the Ukrainian government. With three full days of testimony this week, and two the previous, International Edition’s Steve Miller speaks with Dr. Craig Albert, a political science professor at Augusta University, to unpack as to what the testimony meant to the Democrats and Republicans. Plus, a former CIA officer who pleaded guilty to an espionage conspiracy with China faces sentencing. The AP's Matt Small reports. In a major policy reversal, South Korea said Friday it has decided to continue a 2016 military intelligence-sharing agreement with Japan that it previously said it would terminate amid ongoing tensions over wartime history and trade.

Artist finishes 87th work on his 99 county Freedom Rock Tour

 Cache   
SIOUX CITY (AP) — Artist Ray “Bubba” Sorensen II recently finished painting his 87th rock in Albia, which leaves 12 rocks remaining on his Freedom Rock Tour of Iowa.

During the tour, which Sorensen hopes to wrap up next fall or winter, he honors veterans by painting military-themed murals on large boulders in each of the state’s 99 counties. He has completed rocks in every Northwest Iowa county.

Although Sorensen said he had great art teachers in primary and secondary school who “pushed him along,” he really didn’t get into painting until he majored in art and design at Iowa State University.

“I just sort of started expanding my mediums and things that I was experimenting with. I’d always kind of wanted to try murals out,” he said. “That’s kind of what led me down this road.”

In 1999, Sorensen asked permission to paint a large boulder near Menlo. The 60-ton rock, which is located one mile south of Interstate 80, off exit 86, had been a popular spot for graffiti. He painted “Thank you veterans for our freedom” and the flag raising at Iwo Jima.

After the rock was eventually graffitied over, a group of veterans asked Sorensen if he would go out and paint the same thing for Memorial Day. Instead, he changed the mural.

“It just kind of snowballed from there. Every May, I go out and paint a different ‘Thank you’ for our veterans,” said Sorensen, who doesn’t get paid for the murals he paints on Freedom Rocks. “I’ve always said I’ll continue to do it as long as I can afford the paint and afford the time.”

After Sorensen started a mural painting and photography business with his wife in 2008, they came up with the idea for the Freedom Rock Tour, which touches all of Iowa’s counties.

“I haven’t served, so I feel like I and my family, we owe a debt of gratitude to the men and women that have served and are serving and standing at ready to defend this country. All it’s done is just deepen my appreciation and understanding of what our veterans have done and are doing,” Sorensen said of the tour.

Sorensen said he paints as few as 10 and as many as 16 rocks in a year. He even painted a rock in Wisconsin in January. Each mural takes 1 to 2 weeks to complete, depending on size and complexity. As far as subject matter, Sorensen said that’s decided by him and the Freedom Rock committees that naturally form at each site.

“I’m not so much concentrated on branch and each era and every single thing crammed onto each rock, but rather just tell interesting and inspiring stories at each spot,” he said.

Sorensen said the original Freedom Rock is his favorite, simply because he’s “the client” and has sole control of the theme. In celebration of the conclusion of the Iowa Freedom Rock Tour, Sorensen said he will paint a 100th rock. Towns will get to bid for the spot. Fifty percent of the proceeds from the auction, Sorensen said, will benefit a veterans’ charity.

As Sorensen winds down his Iowa tour, he’s already begun the 50 State Freedom Rock Tour, having painted rocks in Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Washington State.

“The goal, of course, is to try to have one in all 50 states. That one is going to probably move at a little bit slower pace, but that’s fine,” he said.

A Nigger Un-Reconstructed: The Legacy of Richard Pryor

A Nigger Un-Reconstructed: The Legacy of Richard Pryor
by Mark Anthony Neal | @NewBlackMan | NewBlackMan (in Exile)

"Unreconstructed black men don't have the manners of their reconstructed 'Negro' brethren, who are always trying to put a 'civilized' face on their blackness, especially in the company of white folks." — -- Quincy Troupe

"I think that niggers are the best of people who were slaves, and that's how they got to be niggers 'cause they stole the cream-of-the-crop from Africa and brought them over here. And God, as they say, works in mysterious ways, so he made everybody a nigger…he brought us all over here — the best — the kings and queens, the princesses, the princes, put us all together and called us one tribe: Niggers."  --— Richard Pryor, Wattstax (1973)
When Richard Pryor walked off the stage for the last time on December 10, 2005 he did so quietly, with little of the verve and brashness that defined so many of his groundbreaking moments as a storyteller, comedian, recording artist, and actor. For all the direct links made between the late Pryor and post-Civil Rights comedic icons like Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock, "Hip-Hop generation jr." has had little connection with Richard Pryor and his art. Pryor was a product of another era, but it was in the midst of that era that he redefined how America confronted the issue of race (and Black masculinity), thereby paving the way for mainstream acceptance of Hip-Hop's own irreverence and provocative nature.
Born in 1940 and raised in Peoria, IL, Pryor regularly discussed his early years growing up under the watchful eye of his grandmother, who owned a brothel in the city. Pryor's parents, in fact, worked at the same brothel. Those days opened Pryor's eyes to a world that was largely hidden from White America; a world premised on the realities of Jim Crow segregation and a world that had to remain behind the soiled veil of racism, if Black America was ever to achieve full participation in the so-called American Dream.
When Pryor began to work the chitlin' circuit in the early 1960s and later the clubs of New York City's Greenwich Village, he worked amongst a generation of Black entertainers, who took seriously the charge of putting the "best face of the race" forward, as Black political activists in the South sought to directly challenge the legalities of racial segregation. For many Black performers, the point was to use their talents to appeal to the common humanity shared between blacks and their white audiences.
As Michael Eric Dyson suggests in his book Is Bill Cosby Right?: Or Has the Black Middle Class Lost its Mind?, no Black entertainer did this more effectively during that era than Bill Cosby. For Pryor, Cosby became the template for his early success as a comedian. It was just the first example of Pryor's ability to follow the money trail -- a trait that would undermine him throughout his career -- as he became little more than "Cosby, Jr." when booked on television shows like The Tonight Show and The Merv Griffin Show (Griffin takes great credit for helping to launch Pryor's career).
But for all of those Black performers who sought to make themselves palatable to whites, there were other examples of folk, who poet and Miles Davis biographer Quincy Troupe describes as "unreconstructed"; folk who never sought to remix Blackness for White comfort or consumption. While such "unreconstructed-ness" is largely a myth -- we all capitulate at one time or another to the so-called "White gaze" in one form of another to gain access to institutions we deem important to our well being -- it helped create mythic icons, which became synonymous with not dancing the dance of racial ingratiation. Miles Davis is the most visible example of this.
But what Pryor understood perhaps better than anyone as the Civil Right Movement waned, was that the "unreconstructed" Black was as much an insincere performance of Blackness as the "ready for integration players" (to turn a phrase from that other Black trickster from the era). When Pryor put "little Cosby" to rest in the late 1960s -- dramatically walking off stage muttering "what am I doing here?" -- he did so because of those memories of the black underground in Peoria.
Pryor re-emerged in 1971 from a self-imposed period of isolation; hanging out in Berkeley, reading the Autobiography of Malcolm X, listening to Marvin Gaye's What's Going On, and reflecting on his youth in Peoria. He did so as a social commentator, using his talents to speak to the realities of race in America and class within Black America. In his autobiography, Pryor Convictions and Other Life Sentences (Pantheon, 1997), Pryor says "There was a world of junkies and winos, pool hustlers and prostitutes, women and family screaming inside my head, trying to be heard."
The voices that Pryor heard in his head -- the "niggers" in his head -- were the same "niggers" that both the Civil Rights guard and the Black Power elite had a vested interest in killing-off (think about the Last Poets' "Niggers Are Scared of Revolution"). Pryor knew better; he had long known better. Those "niggers" were the salt of the earth and he suggested as much during the 1973 concert documentary Wattstax, where he describes "niggers" as the "best of people who were slaves." In a collection of ground-breaking and award winning albums throughout the 1970s, including That Nigger's Crazy (1974) and Bicentennial Nigger (1976), Pryor brought his "niggers" to life -- and these were "niggers" unreconstructed with no allegiance to looking good for the race or for the cause.
There's little doubt though, that Pryor also saw "niggers" through the lens of a society that freely denied Blacks humanity and forced them to the margins of civil society to scuffle and hustle for whatever semblance of a life they could create. Indeed, his own life as a child bore witness to that reality. His suggestion that niggers function as a "tribe" (Wattstax) points to Pryor's ultimate belief that there was potential power in those tightly-knit, spatially-challenged, and sparsely-resourced "nigger" enclaves.
Though many cite Richard Pryor Live in Concert, his 1979 film, as the apex of his creative powers, I'd like to highlight an earlier moment in Pryor's career that speaks to his genius as a comic and social critic, and the very limits placed on that genius. Pryor was asked to host an episode of Saturday Night Live in the show's debut season. In what has become one of the show's most classic moments, Pryor and Chevy Chase did a parody of a job interview. As the interviewer, Chase engages Pryor in a name association exercise, which quickly devolves into a name-calling exchange where Pryor responds to Chase's invocation of the word "nigger!" with the threat "Deeeeeead honkey!"
The sketch could easily be viewed as evidence of the new found freedoms experienced by Blacks in the post-Civil Rights era -- racial epithets against Blacks forcibly challenged by violent threats -- but the end-game of the exchange was that Pryor's character was offered a job and salary that made him the "highest paid janitor" in America. Here the writers at Saturday Night Live tap into the burgeoning anxieties about Affirmative Action -- anxieties premised, in part, on the belief that Blacks were being unfairly rewarded because of the bully-pulpit that charges of racism afforded them.
As the Reagan era dawned and Pryor desired a wider audience, his brilliant Bicentennial Nigger (1976) becomes one of that last examples of Pryor pursuing the kinds of social justice concerns in his comedy that had marked his transformation earlier in the decade of the 1970s. The biting commentary of his albums would never translate to his film roles (Blue Collar might be the exception) or his television appearances. Indeed when Pryor aborted The Richard Pryor Show (1977) after only shooting four episodes (he was contracted to do 10) he told the show's writing staff, "You know something? I don't want to be on TV. I'm in a trap. I can't do this -- there ain't no art." (reported in Newsweek  October 3, 1977).
In truth Pryor was dealing with an on-going drug addiction that would have near tragic implications in 1980, when the comic was burned in an "accident" while freebasing. (Pryor referred to the accident as an attempt at suicide). Pryor's social commentary allowed him to assuage the pain of his upbringing in Peoria and when that avenue was no longer available to him he chose the rewards of mainstream success. Unfortunately for Pryor the fame and wealth that his cross-over status afforded him did not bring the peace that he so desired.
Bicentennial Nigger was released he same year that Pryor appeared in Silver Streak with Gene Wilder (one of their many cinematic collaborations). Though Pryor had earned critical acclaim for his role as "Piano Man" in Lady Sings the Blues (1972) and had star turns in black-themed films like Car Wash, The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars and Motor Kings ( a film about the Negro leagues which also starred Billy Dee Williams), and Uptown Saturday Night (his Sharp Eye Washington steals the movie), and would later star in a film about Black stock car driver Wendell Scott (Greased Lighting), Silver Streak marked his first major attempt to cross-over to the White mainstream. By the time Pryor starred in the film version of Neil Simon's California Suite (garnering a higher salary than his mentor Cosby, who was also in the film), he had become the Black-face of cross-over possibilities.
His status as the quintessential Black cross-over star was cemented with the Sidney Poitier-directed Stir Crazy (1980), also starring Wilder, which grossed more than $100 million. But Pryor's willingness to submit himself to the paper chase had notable impact on the cutting-edge personas that he crafted on his albums and stand-up performances. As Ed Guerrero notes in his classic  Framing Blackness: The African American Image in Film, "The usual consumer-spectator refused to accept Pryor on his own self-defined cinematic terms, which always involved an exploration and sharp articulation of the bittersweet ironies of racial injustice and black life in America. The market audience supported only Pryor's roles as a comic foil or scene stealer, cast in films with a white lead."
In the aftermath of his accident in 1980 and needing to meet medical expenses and the like, Pryor often sought roles on the basis of the payday. For example, when asked about why he chose his brief role in Superman III, Pryor responded "It really was the $4 million". Pryor's salary for the film was unprecedented for a Black actor and highlighted the value that Hollywood placed on his cross-over power. This would be one of Pryor's last great paydays as the very Black crossover strategy that he took advantage of was very quickly being used to push a 20-something Eddie Murphy as the "new Richard Pryor". One of the measurements of how fast Pryor was descending was his experience with his production company, Indigo. Columbia pictures gave Pryor's company $40 million and the ability to greenlight films, but after a year of internal struggles with the company's staff (including actor and former NFL great Jim Brown, who helped nurse Pryor back to health after his near fatal "accident"), Pryor returned the money.
Excepting those who were fortunate enough to hear Pryor's albums on their parents' record players in the 1970s, many within the Hip-Hop generation were unfortunately introduced to Pryor via dismal vehicles such as Brewster's Millions (1985) and Critical Condition (1987). When Pryor and Redd Foxx paired opposite Eddie Murphy in Harlem Nights (1989), one could already see the early ravages of multiple sclerosis on Pryor -- he was a shell of himself. Pryor's semi-autobiographical Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life is Calling (arguably one of his better films) was lost on a generation of folk who were not privy to the context that made Pryor's earlier work so compelling.
And yet Pryor was one of the critical forces that allowed for the mainstreaming of Hip-Hop in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Pryor made explicitly public the dark, funky, bittersweet, and beautiful realities of Black life behind the color line, and offended a great many Black folk who wanted those realities to remain out-of-sight from the White gaze. Pryor wasn't simply airing the proverbial "dirty laundry",  but like Langston Hughes before him -- The Weary Blues (1926) and Fine Clothes to the Jew (1927) being fine examples -- he celebrated the full, diverse and vibrant humanity of Black folk, particularly the "niggers".
Much has been made in recent years about Pryor's very public censure of himself, for his long time use of the world "nigger". As Pryor recalled in his concert film Here and Now (1983) and later shared with audiences of Essence Magazine in 1984, he was traveling throughout the continent of Africa and a voice inside him asked "Do you see any niggers?" and he had to come to terms with the fact that he didn't see any. Pryor's repudiation of the word "nigger" has been invoked numerous times to sanction Hip-Hop culture's liberal use of the word. As award-winning journalist Leonard Pitts wrote a few years ago, "we've become entirely too casual, too gratuitous, with this instrument of disparagement" (Denver Post 26 March, 1998).
When Pryor made his claim about the word's use (and we have no knowledge about whether he used the word in his private life) he was paying penance for a wide range of behaviors and trying to get back in the good graces of the American public. But I'd like to also suggest that Pryor's rejection of "nigger" was also about finally putting to bed a particular paradigm of American race relations that no longer functioned in the post-Civil Rights/Reagan-era. Indeed, he was paying penance for the 'sin' of making White America uncomfortable with the issue of race (much like we saw with Muhammad Ali over the last decade of his life).
The "niggas" that found their redemption via 808 machines of the 1980s had nothing to do with the world that Pryor had navigated and eventually lost part of his soul to. In truth, Richard Pryor had little to offer the Hip-hop generation -- his peers were men who pitched Jello and created Bahamian diets, and this is not to disparage any of them or their cultural impact, but simply a reminder that the world had changed and it would be the Chris Rocks, Robin Harrises (really a transitional figure) and Dave Chappelles of the world who would best capture the sad, tragicomic realities of the Hip-Hop generation.
Richard Pryor was much more complex than the profanity that garnered him an audience and a devoted following. For Pryor a word like "nigger" was not profane -- it was born out of the realities of race in America and he always acknowledged the humanity of those "niggers" by allowing them to speak freely back to the world via his stand-up comedy. The lives "niggers" were forced to live were profane -- not the word used to describe them.
If there's a lesson to be learned by the Hip-hop generation, it's not that we should put our "niggas" away in the closet, but that we should be clear that with each invocation of the "niggas" that we are shedding light on the humanity of those folks who still live a reality defined by the dirty, nasty business of race, gender, and poverty in the United States. Richard Pryor was a "nigger" unreconstructed, and for that we are thankful.

The district’s three top students were honored during a reception in the Bellport High School library on April 18, where they were congratulated by the board of education, central administration, faculty and parents. Principal Timothy Hogan called their being named valedictorian, salutatorian and essayist as a “remarkable achievement.” He said these students “serve as leaders of the building and as role models to other students.” As valedictorian, Tyler acquired an overall weighted GPA of 102.9919. Tyler is an advanced Placement Scholar with Honors.

Aneeqa will graduate with a Regents diploma with advanced designation and with mastery and honors in science. Born in Pakistan and fluent in Urdu, Aneeqa moved to the U.S. when she was 9 years old. Having to work hard in fourth grade to make an academic transition, she thrived prior to coming to Bellport High School in ninth grade, evidenced by her membership in the National, Math and Science honor societies. Last school year, Aneeqa was selected to participate in a summer engineering program at Stony Brook University and has been a member of the math team and varsity tennis team. She writes for the school newspaper, The Clipper, and volunteers at the Brookhaven Public Library as a Junior Ambassador for Suffolk Literacy, where she recruits volunteers to help those who need assistance in learning to read.

Good Turnout for College and Career Expo

 Cache   
Approximately 400 high school students packed the gymnasium at Bellport High School on Monday for the school’s annual spring college and career expo. Over 100 businesses and colleges were set up, ready to chat with students about potential post-graduation paths. As the students made their rounds and explored life after high school, guidance counselor Jenna Restivo reflected on the annual event’s success. “We’ve had students find summer jobs and apply to colleges represented here,” she said.In the lobby, culinary students prepared and served hors d’oeuvres, a new addition this year. “Now, it encompasses all students,” Restivo said. “We used to use a small fund to get food from a deli, but realized we have students taking advanced culinary courses right here at the high school,” she said of the decision to have the students “cater” the event. Both in-state and out-of-state private and public colleges were represented, and prospective students, many of them juniors, signed up for more information.All career paths were represented, from the U.S. Armed Forces to the South Country Ambulance to Long Island businesses like Splish Splash, wanting to recruit seasonal employees.Restivo noted the importance of having career professionals along with college reps to allow students to make connections between choosing a major and earning a degree and landing a job in the real world. “This allows the students to tie in their post-college plans with their pre-college prep,” she said. Knowing that many students enroll in the Advanced Placement Government course, some government officials also talked with students. Terri Ann Malloy, a congressional aide for Lee Zeldin, discussed internship opportunities with students that are available in their Washington, D.C. and Patchogue offices. “We’re a very busy office,” she said, noting that congressional interns do more than grab coffee and make copies. “We try and involve them with casework so they get a good feel for the job,” she said. Legis. Kate Browning’s chief of staff, Josh Slaughter, handed out applications for the 2017 Suffolk County Legislature Page Program. The internship is open to Suffolk County students 18 or older who have a high school diploma and want experience in leadership, policy and government. “The program really gives you a look at what it’s like to work in government,” Slaughter said, adding that he wished a program like that existed when he was that age and looking for experience. Students walked around the gym with this advice in mind from Restivo: “I tell them to not be shy, to talk to each representative and ask as many questions as they can think of,” she said. Nick Felix and Gabrielle Consetti from Suffolk County National Bank set up a table with goodies and giveaways. Though in the process of merging with People’s United Bank, Consetti explained that they were happy to answer any questions students might have about what majors they might go for and their experiences working in a large bank. Felix was happy to offer general advice: “Do something you love,” he told one student grabbing candy. “If you do, it’s not really work.” That advice was comforting for junior students Nicole Gomez, Kai Hatcher and Molly Honce. “This whole process is overwhelming,” Honce said, feeling the pressure. “But I talked to a lot of cool people today.”Gomez admitted that she has some research to do. “It feels like reality is hitting me,” she said.Hatcher agreed. “I don’t know what to do with my life,” she said, laughing nervously. The career fair, she said, helped her realize that there are tons of options out there. “Whether our students are leaving for college, the military or straight for a career, all have great opportunities,” Restivo added. “I hope today’s fair showed them that.” (Reprinted, courtesy of Long Island Advance 3/9/2017)

Judah Smith Launches 'Guided Prayers' That Justin Bieber Says Have Been Helping Him

 Cache   

Earlier this week, Judah and Chelsea Smith launched a new feature on their Churchome app: "Guided Prayers."

In an Instagram post announcing the new prayer feature, Judah says he and his wife—who both pastor Churchome in Seattle, Washington—appear in videos to guide people through prayers that are relevant and five minutes or less.

"Guided prayer is a spiritual experience," he says. "It's much more than just a method. It's much more than just content to consume. It's an experience to be had. It's a moment to be in, completely present, connecting with God. It's based on Scripture. It's based on the way Jesus taught His 12 disciples to pray."

Judah also says the feature uses the Lord's Prayer as an outline to help people take time to pray—whether it's late at night or early in the morning. Their goal, he says, is to give people "the best chance they could have to experience the presence of Jesus and actually follow him in their ordinary, everyday lives."

In September, Justin Bieber shared one of the Smiths' guided prayers on Instagram.

"When you have a quiet moment, get into a comfortable position and listen," Bieber wrote. "They have really been helping me and thought I would share."


          

Is the Left Going After Thanksgiving Now Too?

 Cache   

Public schools in Portland, Oregon, are teaching children that Thanksgiving is about genocide and racism. Mary Grabar reports, "Pity the poor child in Portland, Oregon, schools. While many still think of Thanksgiving as a time to come together with family and friends to celebrate our multicultural heritage over a festive meal, eighth-graders in the Antifa epicenter have the notion drummed into them that Thanksgiving really is a celebration of the genocide of the Indians by greedy capitalist Europeans."

We as Americans have a disheartening way of draining the meaning from holidays. Our culture has made Christmas and Easter totally secular. July 4 is all about booze and loud noises, and we can no longer tell the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day.

For the offended "Woke" folk to go after the few trace amounts of thankfulness left in the Thanksgiving holiday, is truly evil.

As Grabar pointed out, what these children have had "drummed" into their heads is a lie. This is not enlightenment—it is darkness. As Jesus warned us, "See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness" (Luke 11:35, NIV). This is especially egregious, because school is supposed to be about learning, not about lies. And teachers should care enough about children not to lie to them.

How and why should Christians defend Thanksgiving? That we cannot immediately answer how and why speaks to our present condition before God. And are we surprised that we can't answer them?

The steady diet of "feel good" sermons being preached in most churches have not equipped us to push back against the tide of wickedness. We were caught flat-footed when marriage was destroyed and the death culture of abortion took the land.

The concept of Thanksgiving is very biblical: The word thanksgiving occurs 29 times in the Bible, and the concept of giving thanks is found in 93 additional verses. Most of us know Psalm 100 by heart, especially verse 4: "Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name!" So, it is small wonder those who serve the powers of darkness and who have plans for evil hate the spirit of gratitude behind Thanksgiving.

There are epic reasons to defend Thanksgiving: The oxygen of freedom is gratitude. Any day that forces us to stop, take a deep breath and thank God, adds to our national lifespan. What the socialism-promoting teachers in Portland, Oregon, are doing is sowing seeds to bring about an early death for America.

If there are such things as "big fat lies," this one is morbidly obese. In fact, the origin of Thanksgiving is, in itself, the very rebuke all those teachers in Portland need. Far from genocide and greed, Thanksgiving came to us out of the purest motivation possible.

Cheryl Magness wrote, "Sarah Josepha Hale, the author of the children's song 'Mary Had a Little Lamb,' has historically received much of the credit for the establishment of Thanksgiving as a national holiday. Pilgrim Hall, a museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts, dedicated to preserving and passing down the history and stories of the Pilgrims, calls Hale the 'godmother of Thanksgiving.'"

Hale was an established poet and writer, when in 1837, she began writing a series of editorials advocating for a national Thanksgiving holiday. George Washington, John Adams and James Madison had issued Thanksgiving proclamations in the early years of the nation, but after Madison's 1799 proclamation, the practice had ceased.

As the Civil War approached and the nation became increasingly divided, Hale saw a national Thanksgiving observance as a means of bridging the divide. On Sept. 28, 1863, just under three months after the Battle of Gettysburg, she wrote a letter to President Abraham Lincoln entreating him to call for a national celebration of Thanksgiving. On Oct. 3 of that year, he did so.

Thanksgiving Should Bridge Divides and Cultivate Unity

A review of Hale's campaign to make Thanksgiving a national holiday is a good way to remember what Thanksgiving is about. In her writings, Hale emphasized our identity as Americans, our need for community and our dependence on God—the very things we too often forget in our own observances.

In 1860, Hale wrote:

Everything that contributes to bind us in one vast empire together, to quicken the sympathy that makes us feel, from the icy North to the sunny South, that we are one family, each a member of a great and free Nation, not merely the unit of a remote locality, is worthy of being cherished. We have sought to reawaken and increase this sympathy, believing that the fine filaments of the affections are stronger than laws to keep the Union of our States sacred in the hearts of our people... We believe our Thanksgiving Day, if fixed and perpetuated, will be a great and sanctifying promoter of this national spirit.

To make something beautiful into something ugly, to exalt the vile above the sublime, seems to be the stock in trade of the modern left, composed of American Communists bent on destroying this nation. They must not be allowed to get away with their lies ... especially not their lies to children.

I say it as much with a fervent prayer as a greeting: Happy Thanksgiving and God bless America! {eoa}

ASF Brings Holiday Classic To The Stage With THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER

 Cache   

In December, Alabama Shakespeare Festival presents The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, on stage December 5 - 29, 2019.

The hilarious holiday classic, based on the beloved children's book by Barbara Robinson, is directed by ASF Associate Artistic Director Greta Lambert. In the production, the Herdman kids - probably the most mischievous and troublesome kids in history - decide to take over the local church's annual Christmas pageant and insist on playing all the good parts. Silent night? Not a chance, but sometimes a little joyful noise is just what Christmastime needs. Audiences of all ages are sure to delight in the chaos and the fun that abounds when the Herdmans collide head-on with the holidays.

"I was drawn to this play because of the struggle of the community to put on the best possible pageant during the holidays," said Lambert. "Such a range of personalities have come together to tell an iconic story in a new way - without meaning to do so."

To produce this beloved play, ASF auditioned over 150 students from more than 50 schools. Consisting of a cast of kids from public, private, and home schools, this production is an opportunity for young people from our community to come together, collaborate, and celebrate the magic of storytelling with all of us.

The play's cast includes 22 young actors who range in age from eight to 17: Dalton Adair (Valiant Cross Academy), Sarah Kate Barton (The Montgomery Academy), Breanna Bennett (Saint James School), Lannom Bowman (Prattville Christian Academy), Timothy Brannon (Booker T. Washington Magnet High School), Amia Nycole Curry (James Wilson Jr. Elementary School), Angelina Xu Dong (Wrights Mill Road Elementary), Piper Doyle (Pike Road High School), J'Kai Foster (Jefferson Davis High School), Faith Gatson (Booker T. Washington Magnet High School), Jason Grinstead (Baldwin Arts and Academic Magnet Middle School), Ann Welch Hilyer (Alabama Christian Academy), Eva Kate Mason (Homeschooled), Madalyn Milledge (Booker T. Washington Magnet High School), William Miller (Floyd Middle Magnet School), Claude Newsome (Eastwood Christian School), Mary Grace Parsons (Bear Exploration Center), Claire Poundstone (The Montgomery Academy), Gerrisyn Shipman (Thompson Intermediate School), Chloe Surles (Halcyon Elementary School), Jace White (Baldwin Arts and Academic Magnet Middle School), and Ryley Tate Wilson (Homeschooled).

Ronald Court

 Cache   

Essex Junction - Ronald Alfred Court (Courtemanche), 78, of Essex Junction and formerly, Warren, VT died of prostate cancer on November 24, 2019 at the Respite House in Colchester, VT. Ron came to Vermont in 1970 to ski, fell in love with the state and chose to make his life here. He believed in making a positive difference in the lives of others and became a leader in local service organizations, re-discovered his Christian faith, patriotism and deep love for his family. Ron, born in Springfield, MA on November 18, 1941, was the son of Liberda M. Claing and Roland A. Courtemanche. A graduate of Wellesley (MA) High School, he attended Bucknell University. In 1962, he hitch-hiked around the country, coast to coast and back. Traveling with a sleeping bag and suitcase, he encountered people of many colors, creeds, kindnesses and various prejudices, coming away with a profound insight: we are fundamentally all of one race - the human race. Upon returning, he entered Boston University, worked his way through, graduating in 1965 with a BA in Political Science. He was commissioned a Lieutenant, served in Vietnam and received a Bronze Star and Combat Infantryman’s Badge. He moved to Warren, VT in 1970 transitioning from ‘ski bum’ to real estate broker to real estate developer. When one of his companies went bust, he moved to Essex Junction, joined Pomerleau Real Estate and eventually became an adjunct instructor at Champlain College. He ran for Vermont State Representative from Essex Junction in 1985 and though initially narrowly ‘elected’, he lost the recount, one of the best things he said happened to him. It freed him to think about pursuing something really meaningful in life. In 2005, he founded the Booker T. Washington Society, a non-profit dedicated to “Building Character, Inspiring Lives.” This became his true calling and the most satisfying, yet challenging work of his life. Ron served as an elected Essex Junction Trustee, a Rotarian for over 35 years, a Director of the Burlington Boys and Girls Club, and founding Director/Treasurer of Vermonters for Educational Choice. One of Ron’s greatest joys was knowing his sons had embraced, much earlier than he, the things that really matter: the vision, virtues and values that make for a truly successful life. He spoke often about how grateful he was that Pastor Scott Slocum and several Essex Alliance Church members helped bring him back to Jesus Christ. Ron is survived by his former spouse, Pamela Lerner, his ‘best possible partner’ in raising their twin sons, Roland Alexander Court, of Lake Balboa CA and Barnaby Lerner Court of Raleigh, NC, along with their respective spouses, Jennifer Russell Court and Jamie Katz Court. He leaves 2 beautiful grandsons, James Elliott Court and Samuel Avery Court. He is also survived by his sisters, Sue Luby and husband, Ralph, and Louise Stebbins and husband, John, and nieces and nephews, Steve, Cyndy, Amanda, Josh, Gabriella and their spouses and children. Visiting hours will be at AW Rich Funeral home, 57 Main Street, Essex Junction, on Thursday, December 5, 2019 from 5-8PM. Funeral services will be held on December 6, 2019 at 11AM at Essex Alliance Church, 37 Old Stage Road, Essex Junction, VT 05452 In lieu of flowers, please send gifts in Ron’s memory to the Booker T. Washington Society (btwsociety.org/donate) A gathering of family and friends will be held following the service. He will be interred at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Randolph Center, Vermont at a later date. The family would like to convey sincere and special thanks to Dr. Alexander Fuld and the wonderful caring staff at the VA Medical Hospital in White River Junction and McClure Miller VNA Respite House.

So Many Accidents On Snowy Spokane Roads, Tow Trucks Could Not Keep Up

 Cache   
Dozens of vehicles were involved in multiple crashes on Interstate 90 just west of Spokane on Tuesday, shortly after a squall dumped heavy snow near Geiger Boulevard. Washington State Patrol troopers estimated 50 to 100 vehicles were involved in the collisions, though no life-threatening injuries were reported, according to Trooper Jeff Sevigney. “Mainly just fender benders and bent sheet metal,” Sevigney said. “Conditions changed rapidly. Unfortunately, folks didn’t adjust their speed in time, and once you have one crash it kind of starts a chain reaction.” The freeway was reduced to one lane in each direction, but all lanes reopened at about 5:30 p.m. The squall hit the West Plains after 1 p.m. and initially caused the full closure of the westbound lanes and a partial closure of eastbound lanes. There were “multiple spinouts in both directions,” the state Department of Transportation reported on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon. “Slick conditions throughout the West Plains.”

The Takeaway From the Impeachment Hearings: Our Constitution Has Failed

 Cache   

When the House Intelligence Committee began holding hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, some media coverage suggested the proceedings lacked enough “pizzazz … to capture public attention.” It turned out that hearings produced more than their share of bombshells—from EU ambassador and Trump megadonor Gordon Sondland’s admission that there was a “quid pro quo,” to State Department official David Holmes’s testimony about  overhearing a phone call in which Sondland assured Trump that Ukraine would move ahead with the investigations Trump had requested, to former National Security Council official Fiona Hill’s conclusion that Sondland was carrying out a “domestic political errand” for the president that diverged from the U.S. national interest. When the Committee concluded its hearings, the evidence was damning and largely uncontested: Trump appeared to have been part of a scheme to extort a foreign country into sabotaging the US presidential election to his benefit.

Yet, even with the evidence on public display, it remains next to impossible to imagine Republicans taking meaningful action. Even Republicans seen as most likely to break from their party are signaling support for Trump. Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas), a member of the Intelligence Committee who is retiring from Congress and has at times criticized the president, said that, while the president’s actions had been “inappropriate, misguided foreign policy,” he did not see evidence of an impeachable offense. Hurd’s statement can reasonably be seen as an indication that few (if any) Republicans in Congress will vote to impeach or remove the president from office.

Some observers describe what we are seeing as a crisis. In fact, what we are living through is constitutional failure. The system created by the framers is not doing the job it was designed to do, particularly in the current circumstances: We are faced with a corrupt president who rejects the very idea of legal limits on his power.

Our constitutional democracy is based on free and fair elections, individual rights, independent courts, and the rule of law—the idea that no one is above the law. Trump rejects all of these bedrock principles. He has tried to undermine free and fair elections (most recently demonstrated in the Ukraine scandal.) He threatens his critics with prosecution and lawsuits, disdaining the notion of First Amendment speech and press protections. He seeks to delegitimize judges who rule against his policies. He rejects the idea that ordinary rules and laws apply to him and his allies, declaring (erroneously) that under Article II of the Constitution, “I have the right to do whatever I want as president.”

Trump poses an existential threat to our system of government—and yet he remains in office. In a functioning system, Republicans would have already joined Democrats in taking action to remove Trump from office—just as Republicans stood against Nixon in 1974. In our failed system we are reduced to waiting to see how far Trump will go before congressional Republicans will act—if they ever do.

Every system needs a way to protect itself, and our constitutional system provides (in theory) all the tools needed to deal with the direct threat Trump poses. Congress is fully empowered to remove a corrupt president from office. But congressional Republicans, by refusing to act, render those tools useless. 

James Madison believed that the constitutional system would prevent the accumulation of too much power in any one branch of government. If one branch exceeded the limits of its power, it would be reined in by the others. In order for this to work, Madison famously wrote, “Ambition must be made to counteract ambition.” In other words, if the president engaged in a power grab, members of Congress would use constitutionally available tools to check him or her —not out of moral rectitude but because legislators would be worried about ceding their own power to an ambitious president.

The system is failing because Republicans are placing partisan concerns—their own loyalty to Trump or fear of the political costs of defying him—ahead of their constitutional responsibilities. The system Madison helped design cannot function properly under these circumstances.

It is important to forthrightly describe the reality of constitutional failure for two reasons. 

First, it emphasizes the emergency we face. If he does not face consequences, Trump will feel emboldened to do precisely as he chooses, without regard to ethical or legal limits. We’re seeing this, for instance, with Trump’s moves to undermine the rule of law within the U.S. military by pardoning the Navy SEAL convicted of taking a “selfie” with the corpse of a teenage boy who fought for ISIS.

We can’t count on his removal from office by election as a foolproof safeguard, especially when Trump’s misconduct in the Ukraine scandal was focused squarely on an illicit attempt to tilt the electoral scales in his favor.

Second, describing what has occurred as failure points out that we need a new constitution, one that will be designed to strengthen our democracy against future existential threats. No system is guaranteed to succeed, but a failed one demands replacement. 

Today’s Republican Party is an anti-democratic, authoritarian party that seeks to gain—and has gained—power without winning a majority of votes. To this end, it pushes voter suppression measures and takes advantage of structural defects in our system. Gerrymandered districts can allow the GOP to win a minority of the votes and still control the House. The Electoral College gave Trump the presidency 2016, even though he lost the popular vote—a feat he stands a realistic chance of repeating in 2020. And though deeply unpopular, he enjoys majority support in a Senate that does not reflect political preferences of the majority of Americans, but instead allows a  minority in sparsely populated states to wield power. 

Making the electoral system more majoritarian could force the Republican Party to abandon its anti-democratic approach if it wishes to win. There is no guaranteed way to prevent would-be authoritarians from gaining power. After all, a very popular authoritarian could easily win the popular vote. But clearly, the authoritarianism of our current president is not popular with Americans: Trump’s approval ratings are consistently in the low 40s. Constitutional change would strengthen liberal democracy against an authoritarian party. It is worth trying.

With this goal in mind, a new constitution could address some of the anti-democratic features of our current system, including:

  • ending the Electoral College.

  • reforming or replacing a Senate that gives the 435,000 voting-age people in Wyoming as many votes as the 17,524,000 in Texas.

  • eliminating partisan gerrymandering.

  • protecting the right to vote against voter suppression efforts.

  • dealing with the corrupting influence of our current campaign finance system.

A new constitution could also be aimed at shoring up the rule of law, including by protecting the independence of the Department of Justice and replacing the current impeachment process with something capable of actually holding a lawless president to account. One idea to explore would be expressly giving the DOJ independent prosecutorial authority over the president. Another would be providing a process for triggering new presidential elections—say, based on a three-fifths vote in the House and Senate. 

Obviously, these kinds of changes are not politically plausible at the moment, but they need to be on our agenda—unless we are willing to risk another attack on the system from a future president. We need to begin talking about how to create the conditions needed for a new constitution, one giving us better odds of warding off the next authoritarian threat—assuming we survive the one posed by Trump.

Fox Guest Lies About Ukraine Aid Block, Accuses Dems Of Impeachment For 'Thought Crimes'

 Cache   

National Review writer Victor Davis Hanson made an appearance on this Friday's The Story with Martha MacCallum on Fox News, and his defense of Trump was so ridiculous that even guest host Ed Henry (who usually goes out of his way to carry water for Trump) corrected him on the fact that the aid to Ukraine was indeed delayed. Of course Henry failed to tell his audience that the aid was only released after the administration learned about the whistle-blower.

After Henry pointed out that the aid was indeed delayed, Hanson just turned on a dime and told Henry that Trump had every right to delay the aid, which he doesn't. Henry couldn't be bothered to fact-check Hanson on that lie either.

Here's more on the exchange from Mediaite: Victor Davis Hanson Accuses Dems of Trying to Impeach Trump for ‘Thought Crimes,’ Because Ukraine Aid Was Delayed But Not Canceled

The Sinister Scientist Behind the CIA’s Mind-Control Mayhem

 Cache   

The Sinister Scientist Behind the CIA’s Mind-Control MayhemPhoto Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/APStephen Kinzer has written books about civil wars, terror attacks, and bloody coups, but his latest might be his most alarming. “I’m still in shock,” Kinzer says of what he learned about the appalling experiments conducted by a government scientist most Americans have never heard of. “I can’t believe that this happened.”These aren’t the words of an author trying to fire up the hype machine. Though the events recounted in Kinzer’s Poisoner in Chief: Sidney Gottlieb and the CIA Search for Mind Control took place a half-century ago, they’re scandalous in a way that transcends time.For much of his 22-year CIA career, Gottlieb ran mind-control projects designed to help America defeat Communism. In the ’50s and ’60s, Kinzer writes, Gottlieb “directed the application of unknowable quantities and varieties of drugs into” countless people, searching for the narcotic recipe that might allow him to mold his human test subjects’ thoughts and actions.Gottlieb and a network of medical professionals gave LSD and other drugs to prisoners, hospital patients, government employees, and others—many of whom had no idea they were being dosed. A CIA staffer died in highly suspicious fashion after Gottlieb had his drink spiked with LSD. Meanwhile, when his bosses considered killing a foreign leader, Gottlieb developed custom-made poisons. Numerous people were harmed by Gottlieb’s work, but because he destroyed his files on the eve of his 1973 retirement, it’s hard to quantify the carnage he wrought.Perilous Discoveries: The Unintended Consequences of Scientific SecrecyThe broad outlines of Gottlieb’s story have been public for years. Major newspapers ran obituaries when he died in 1999. In 2017, he was portrayed by actor Tim Blake Nelson in Errol Morris’ Wormwood. But Kinzer’s book, the first proper Gottlieb biography, includes fascinating new facts about the end of his career and fresh details about disturbing episodes he orchestrated. Poisoner in Chief describes Gottlieb’s little-known participation in torture sessions at U.S. military sites in foreign countries and reports that in at least one case a doctor who worked with Gottlieb gave LSD to children. Gottlieb was “the Josef Mengele of the United States,” Kinzer, a former New York Times reporter and the author of many books, told me in a recent interview.How did Gottlieb, the Bronx-born son of Hungarian Jews, become a man who would earn comparisons to a ghoulish Nazi doctor?After getting a doctorate in biochemistry from the California Institute of Technology, Gottlieb joined the CIA in 1951, a time of fear and uncertainty. Just six years after the end of World War II, American troops were fighting in Korea. Washington was increasingly worried about what many believed was the existential threat posed by the Soviet Union. Gottlieb was on the job for a few weeks, Kinzer writes, when he was tapped “to invigorate” what would be known as the Artichoke project.Artichoke—the name was essentially meaningless; it might’ve been a CIA boss’ favorite vegetable—gave Gottlieb broad license to carry out mind control projects. Kinzer cites a CIA memo that describes the mission: “the investigation of drug effects on ego control and volitional activities, i.e., can willfully suppressed information be elicited through drugs affecting higher nervous systems? If so, which agents are better for this purpose?”The CIA aimed to create truth serum to use on prisoners and other compounds that would help wipe away memories of events that would cause trouble for the agency. If all went as planned, intelligence officers would have the ability to program people to carry out missions like those later seen in Richard Condon’s novel The Manchurian Candidate and the subsequent movie.Artichoke projects often amounted to “medical torture,” Kinzer writes. Inspired in part by brutal experiments conducted by the Japanese military and the Nazis in the ’40s, Artichoke included the “dosing (of) unwilling patients with potent drugs, subjecting them to extremes of temperature and sound (and) strapping them to electroshock machines.” Artichoke squads worked with impunity at American military sites in Europe and Asia. Such projects were closely guarded secrets, but Poisoner in Chief contains details that will be new to most readers.For instance, Kinzer notes that when “Artichoke scientists came up with a new drug or other technique they wished to test… they asked the CIA station in South Korea to supply a batch [of] ‘expendable’ subjects.” A related CIA memo said the subjects were needed for the testing of an unnamed but “important new technique,” adding, “Technique does not, not require disposal problems after application.” This is ambiguous language, but it suggests that the CIA knew that in some cases, human test subjects might be killed in the process.Gottlieb oversaw a scientific unit at Maryland’s Camp Detrick (since renamed Fort Detrick), where chemists researched the effects of LSD, heroin, and other drugs, sometimes trying the substances themselves. But he was not just a creature of the lab. “We know that he participated in torture sessions in East Asia,” Kinzer says, speaking from his home in Massachusetts. “We know that he made repeated visits to Germany, which, like Japan, was under U.S. occupation, so he didn’t have to obey any laws. And he was also active in other parts of Europe.”In time, Gottlieb became intimately familiar with LSD’s mind-altering effects. He admitted that he’d used the drug more than 200 times. “When I look at the variety of the projects that he was involved in,” Kinzer says, “from hypnotism to electroshock to parapsychology to handwriting analysis, I begin to think that maybe it was while he was on LSD that he was thinking, ‘I got another idea.’”By 1953, Kinzer writes, “Artichoke had become one of the most violently abusive projects ever sponsored by an agency of the United States government.” That year, Allen Dulles, one of Gottlieb’s ardent backers, got the CIA’s top job. The new boss, Kinzer writes, was among Washington’s leading mind control proponents: “Dulles never recoiled from the most extreme implications of ‘brain warfare.’” Dulles wanted “to intensify and systematize” the work done under Artichoke, Kinzer adds, and he tapped Gottlieb to head a new program: MK-ULTRA, named for the “ultra-sensitive” activities it was expected to carry out.With a generous budget and an “effectively unlimited supply” of LSD—the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly manufactured the hallucinogenic drug for the CIA—Gottlieb became perhaps “the most powerful unknown American of the 20th century,” Kinzer says.A key MK-ULTRA initiative involved medical professionals who agreed to administer drugs to their patients—often without the patients’ knowledge or consent. For instance, when Gottlieb wanted to know how much LSD a body could withstand, he got in touch with Harris Isbell, a researcher at a Lexington, Kentucky addiction center who had made his curiosity about LSD known in a letter to the CIA.Working with a group of men who “were not told what sort of drug they would be fed or what its effects might be,” Kinzer writes, Isbell administered large doses of LSD. He reported that the men experienced anxiety, hallucinations, and “choking.” As always with CIA projects of this kind, it’s tough to say how much damage was done. But Kinzer writes that at least one patient did speak out, saying that “for the rest of his life he suffered from delusions, paranoia, panic attacks, and suicidal impulses.”Another keen CIA collaborator chaired the pharmacology department at Emory University. “As subjects,” Kinzer writes, Dr. Carl Pfeiffer “used inmates at the federal prison in Atlanta and at a juvenile detention center in Bordentown, New Jersey,” administering depressants and hallucinogens in volumes that resulted in seizures and hallucinations that lasted for days. One of Pfeiffer’s subjects was James “Whitey” Bulger, who later became a notorious Boston gangland killer. Bulger said that as a young inmate, he was given LSD daily for more than a year.Another doctor—a New York allergist named Harold Abramson, who got an $85,000 MK-ULTRA stipend—“developed a special curiosity about the impact of mind-altering drugs on children,” Kinzer writes. “He closely monitored experiments, including one in which 12 ‘pre-puberty’ boys were fed psilocybin, and another in which 14 children between the ages of six and 11, diagnosed as schizophrenic, were given 100 micrograms of LSD each day for six weeks.”In Manhattan, meanwhile, Gottlieb helped set up a CIA safe house, where, with the hands-on help of a local narcotics cop, “unsuspecting citizens would be lured and surreptitiously drugged,” their behavior monitored via surveillance equipment in an adjoining apartment.It was around this time that Gottlieb attended a retreat with some other CIA men. The colleagues began drinking, and a few minutes later, Kinzer writes, “Gottlieb asked if anyone was feeling odd. Several said they were. Gottlieb then told them that their drinks had been spiked with LSD.” The incident triggered an emotional crisis in one of the men, a scientist named Frank Olson. Days later, Olson plunged to his death from the window of a Manhattan hotel. As seen in Morris’ film Wormwood, there’s compelling circumstantial evidence that Olson was murdered because the CIA feared he would divulge one of the secret projects he’d worked on.One of Gottlieb’s most remarkable duties involved adversarial foreign heads of state. According to colleagues, he prepared “a pre-poisoned tube of toothpaste” meant for Congolese Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba (it went unused) and ran a scientific team that considered a bizarre plot to disgrace Fidel Castro. Believing that the Cuban leader’s charisma was linked to his facial hair, Gottlieb wanted to have thallium salts sprinkled in his boots. “His beard would then fall out,” Kinzer writes, “leaving him open to ridicule and overthrow.” This, of course, never came to pass.By 1963, MK-ULTRA’s final year, Gottlieb and his colleagues “were forced to face their cosmic failure,” Kinzer writes. “Their research had shown them that mind control is a myth—that seizing another person’s mind and reprogramming it is impossible.”Nonetheless, Kinzer believes that Gottlieb left a deeply lamentable imprint on the modern CIA. He says there’s “a direct line between Sidney Gottlieb’s work and techniques that U.S. agents taught to Latin American security services in the 1960s and ’70s—these techniques were also used in Vietnam—and then later on to the techniques of torture and so-called extreme interrogation that were used at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.”Though Gottlieb’s decision to destroy his files means that there’s much we’ll never know, Kinzer appears to be the first journalist to directly tie his departure from the CIA to the scandal that ended Richard Nixon’s presidency. Gottlieb’s team, he reports, “prepared false identity papers for two of” the men who broke into the Democratic National Committee’s offices in the Watergate complex. The break-in set off a chain of events that result in the ouster of CIA Director Richard Helms. “Helms,” Kinzer explains, “was Gottlieb’s number one promoter and enabler and sponsor for 20 years.” Nixon fired Helms in February 1973. Gottlieb retired four months later.After the CIA, Gottlieb took steps to reinvent himself. The long-married father of four joined an arts council in his Virginia town, acted in local holiday plays and worked with children who had speech problems. “It definitely seems from the recollections of people that knew him in his last 20 years that he was a very gentle soul, kind of an eco-hippy,” Kinzer says. “Nobody had any idea of what he had done in the past, but he was tormented by it.”Gottlieb died in March 1999, and when a cause of death wasn’t announced, at least two observers came to believe that he killed himself to derail intensifying legal inquiries into his actions. Eric Olson—Frank’s son—and Sidney Bender, a lawyer for a man who says his life was ruined by a Gottlieb dosing, had both tried to hold Gottlieb to account while he was alive. Instead, Kinzer writes, “they drank a toast to the death of a man they considered a monster.” Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Washington do-goodism almost always fails to help the people it is supposed to because politicians ignore the Law of Unintended Consequences.

Seavers in the News -- Alexander H. Seaver Dies in 1911 in Arlington, Mass.

 Cache   
It's time for another edition of "Seavers in the News" - a weekly feature from the historical newspapers about persons with the surname Seaver that are interesting, useful, mysterious, fun, macabre, or add information to my family tree database.

This week's entry is from The Boston [Mass.] Globe newspaper dated 13 November 1911:

The transcription of the article is:

"ALEXANDER H. SEAVER DEAD
------
Had Been a Resident of Arlington
for Many Years - Formerly in Business in Boston

"ARLINGTON, Nov. 15 -- Alexander H. Seaver died at his home, 824 Massachusetts av, this morning after a long illness from cancer of the stomach.

"Mr. Seaver was born in Worcester, Nov. 16, 1841.  At the outbreak of the Civil war he enlisted with the 25th Massachusetts Regiment and served through the war, but escaped serious injury.  After the close of the war he followed his trade of silversmith for a time, and later came to Boston, where he was a member of the firm of Seaver Dunbar & Whidden, furniture dealers, in Haymarket sq.  When Washington st. North was constructed the building was demolished, and the firm went out of business.  Mr. Seaver then came to Arlington and purchased the news stand here and built up the Arlington News Company.  He held the store for four years, and then sold out.  Since that time he has led a retired live.

"In town affairs he served three years on the Board of Assessors.  In G.A.R. life he was always prominent, and a meeting of the comrades was never complete without him.  He occupied many minor offices in Francis Gould Post 36, G.A.R., and also served as commander two terms.

"Mr. Seaver was well known all through the town.  He was a man of sterling quality, and his word was as good as his bond.  He is survived by his wife.

"The funeral will be held Wednesday afternoon, the day on which he would have been 7 years old.  The services will be conducted by Rev Samuel C. Bushnell,  pastor of the Pleasant st. Congregational Church.  Interment will be in Worcester."

The source citation is:

"Alexander H. Seaver Dead,The Boston [Mass.] Globe newspaper, obituary, Monday, 13 November 1911, page 4, column 6, Alexander H. Seaver obituaryNewspapers.com   (https://www.newspapers.com : accessed 28 November 2019).

Civil War soldier, GAR member, silversmith, furniture dealer, news stand owner, retiree.  There is only a passing mention of a surviving wife and no mention of children.  

Alexander Harrison Seaver was born 16 November 1841 in Holden, Worcester County, Massachusetts, the 4th son and 7th and last child of Alexander H. and Nancy (Newman) Seaver.  His father died before he was two years old, and his mother died before he was seven years old.

Alexander married Ellen Frances Drury (1842-1918) on 3 August 1862 in Worcester, Massachusetts, and they had two children born in Worcester:

*  Frederic Seaver (1866-1866).
*  Alice Seaver (1870-1870).

Both children died within five months of their births.  How sad that must have been for Alexander and Ellen.

Alexander Harrison Seaver is my 3rd cousin 4 times removed, and his children are my 4th cousins 3 times removed.  

There are over 8,000 Seaver "stories" in my family tree - this was one of them.   Life happens, accidentally and intentionally, and sometimes the life of a person is dedicated to business and public service.  I am glad I can honor Alexander Harrison Seaver today.

Ισραηλινή εφημερίδα : H πρόταση μομφής εναντίον του Τραμπ καθοδηγείται από λυσσαλέους Ρωσοφοβικούς Εβραίους   Ινφογνώμων


                                
                                   ΙΑΚΩΒ  ΣΙΦ,  (Jacob Schiff)
 Ο ΤΟΚΟΓΛΥΦΟΣ ΔΗΜΙΟΥΡΓΟΣ ΤΟΥ ΚΟΜΜΟΥΝΙΣΜΟΥ


Israel Shamir - Russia Insider - Μετάφραση Wan Wert 
Η φάρσα με την πρόταση μομφής εναντίον του Τραμπ είναι βασικά υπόθεση των Εβραίων, ανέφερε η Ισραηλινή εφημερίδα Haaretz. Η ψυχή και η μηχανή της μομφής είναι ο Adam Schiff, "Shifty Schiff" κατά την γλαφυρή έκφραση του Τραμπ. Το όνομά του φέρνει στο μυαλό τον Εβραϊκό τραπεζικό οίκο Σιφ, την κορυφαία Εβραϊκή οικογένεια αριστοκρατίας πλούτου και ΜΜΕ.

Ο δεύτερος άντρας είναι ο αδηφάγος Goldman, ή αλλιώς Daniel Sachs Goldman, ο οποίος είναι ο επικεφαλής ανακριτής στις ακροάσεις μομφής. Sachs Goldman ή Goldman Sachs, άλλο ένα κορυφαίο εβραϊκό όνομα και τράπεζα. Ο τρίτος Εβραίος στην καρδιά της πρότασης μομφής είναι ο διαβόητος Τζορτζ Σόρος.

Η Haaretz θα μπορούσε να προσθέσει ότι οι κορυφαίοι μάρτυρες για την πρόταση μομφής είναι επίσης Εβραίοι, όπως ο παράξενος Gordon Sondland" αυτός που είπε στον Τραμπ ο Ουκρανός πρόεδρος Zelensky αγαπάει τον κώλο σας", Sondland ή ο Vindman ο κατάσκοπος. Ο Τραμπ δεν θα τολμούσε ποτέ να παρατηρήσει αυτή την αξιοσημείωτη σύμπτωση, καταλήγει η Haaretz. Μόνο οι αντισημίτες θα μπορούσαν.

Αντί να καταδείξει αυτή την ανοιχτή συνωμοσία και να καλέσει τους Αμερικανούς να σώσουν τη Δημοκρατία, ο Πρόεδρος Τραμπ έκανε έκκληση στην εβραϊκή αίσθηση ευγνωμοσύνης. Έδωσε τώρα το τρίτο θαυμάσιο δώρο του στο εβραϊκό κράτος, δηλαδή την αναγνώριση των εποικισμών μόνο για τους Εβραίους στα κλεμμένα παλαιστινιακά εδάφη, μετά την αναγνώριση της Ιερουσαλήμ και των υψιπέδων του Γκολάν.

Ή ίσως το τέταρτο, αν μετρήσετε την αποχώρησή του από τη συμφωνία του Ιράν. Νομιμοποίησε τους οικισμούς με τη μονομερή απόφαση της υπερδύναμης, κάτι που οι ισραηλινές κυβερνήσεις δεν μπορούσαν ή δεν τόλμησαν ποτέ. Εάν οι "ΗΠΑ ήταν τόσο παντοδύναμες όσο ήταν πριν από είκοσι χρόνια, αυτό θα ήταν το τέλος των συμφωνιών του Όσλο και της Γενεύης, και πρακτικά το τέλος των προσπαθειών δημιουργίας ενός παλαιστινιακού κράτους παράλληλα με το Ισραήλ, κάτι που ήθελαν εξαρχής οι ισραηλινοί εθνικιστές.

Η εμπλοκή των "ΗΠΑ στον ψυχρό εμφύλιο πόλεμο, θα μπορούσε να οδηγήσει σε από νομιμοποίηση των "ΗΠΑ ή σε κατάρρευση του προτύπου των δύο κρατών. Είναι προφανώς ένα τεράστιο δώρο για το εβραϊκό κράτος.

Ο Τραμπ πίστευε ότι η γενναιοδωρία του θα έλιωνε τις καρδιές των Εβραίων και θα τον άφηναν να κυβερνά ειρηνικά. Αλλά όχι, οι Εβραίοι αποδέχονται κάθε δώρο ως οφειλόμενο. Η απουσία ενός δώρου είναι που προκαλεί έκπληξη και είναι ενοχλητική, πιθανόν δε να οφείλεται στον αντισημιτισμό. Είπαν ότι η αναγνώρισή του Τραμπ θα ενοχλήσει τους Δημοκράτες, και θα τους την πάρουν όταν ανακτήσουν τον Λευκό Οίκο.

Πιθανώς αυτή η αντίδραση είναι ακριβώς αυτό στο οποίο βασίστηκε ο Τραμπ, διότι δεν ενδιαφέρεται για την Παλαιστίνη ή το Ισραήλ. Το κοινό-στόχος του είναι ο Αμερικανός Εβραίος. Ο Τραμπ ελπίζει ότι οι Εβραίοι που νοιάζονται για το Ισραήλ περισσότερο από ό,τι νοιάζονται για τις ΗΠΑ θα αλλάξουν πίστη και θα τον στηρίξουν, ώστε οι Δημοκρατικοί να μην κερδίσουν τις επόμενες εκλογές και να αποτρέψουν την αναγνώριση. Κρίνοντας από προηγούμενη εμπειρία, οι Εβραίοι θα κερδίσουν από αυτόν τον ανταγωνισμό , ενώ οι ΗΠΑ θα χάσουν, όπως και ο Τραμπ.

Αξίζει τον κόπο να δούμε ποιοι είναι οι Εβραίοι στις διαδικασίες μομφής. Ο Adam Schiff, είτε είναι ένας μακρινός συγγενής με τον τραπεζίτη Jacob Schiff είτε απλά συνωνυμία , θα μπορούσε να είναι μετενσάρκωση του γέρου,γιατί κληρονόμησε την αγάπη του για τη μαζική μετανάστευση και το μίσος προς τη Ρωσία. Πριν από την εποχή του Jacob Schiff , οι Εβραίοι των ΗΠΑ ήταν μια μικρή κοινότητα. Πλούσια μεν, αλλά πολύ μικρή.

Ο Jacob Schiff, ο οποίος έφτασε στην αμερικανική ακτή στα μέσα του 19ου αιώνα, κατάλαβε ότι χρειαζόταν αριθμούς, μάζες, δημογραφία στο πλευρό του αν ήθελαν οι Εβραίοι να γίνουν σημαντικός παίκτης. Οργάνωσε μαζική μετανάστευση Ρώσων και Πολωνών Εβραίων στις ΗΠΑ. "Άσκησε πιέσεις στο Κογκρέσο και στον Πρόεδρο Γκρόβερ Κλίβελαντ για να αποτρέψουν την ψήφιση νομοθεσίας η οποία θα είχε αποτρέψει το μαζικό κύμα Ρώσων Εβραίων μεταναστών από τους οποίους κατάγονται σήμερα οι περισσότεροι Εβραίοι της Νέας Υόρκης", αναφέρει Εβραϊκή πηγή.

Εκατομμύρια Εβραίοι έφτασαν και τελικά άλλαξαν τις ΗΠΑ κατά τα πρότυπα τους . Τώρα ο Adam Schiff θέλει να εισάγει εκατομμύρια μεταναστών του Τρίτου Κόσμου για να παγιώσει την αλλαγή που ξεκίνησε ο Jacob .

Το μίσος του Jacob Schiff για τη Ρωσία ήταν αρκετά εκπληκτικό, ακόμη και με βάση τα πρότυπα της εποχής εκείνης. Διακεκριμένος τραπεζίτης, έδωσε πολεμικό δάνειο στην Ιαπωνία για να κατασκευάσει το στόλο της για να πολεμήσει τη Ρωσία. Συμπτωματικά , ο στόλος που οικοδομήθηκε με τα χρήματα του Schiff επιτέθηκε στο Περλ Χάρμπορ μερικά χρόνια αργότερα, έτσι κάθε θύμα του πολέμου του Ειρηνικού και οι απόγονοί του μπορούν να μηνύσουν τους Schiffs για τη συμβολή τους.

Πολύ πριν τον Σόρος και την
NED ο Jacob Schiff έπαιξε το παιχνίδι αλλαγής καθεστώτος στη Ρωσία, χρηματοδοτώντας τους επαναστάτες. (Συνέβαλε στην επανάσταση του Φεβρουαρίου του 1917, το φιλελεύθερο φιλοδυτικό πραξικόπημα, αλλά οι Ρώσοι τον πούλησαν κάνοντας άλλο ένα πραξικόπημα τον Νοέμβριο του 2017 και εγκαθιστώντας τους μπολσεβίκους. Οι πράκτορες του έπρεπε να φύγουν και η Ρωσία ανέκτησε την ανεξαρτησία της, ενώ ο Schiff είχε χάσει την επένδυσή του.)

Ο Adam Schiff έχει την ίδια λύσσα εναντίον της Ρωσίας όπως ο Jacob . Ονειρεύεται μια αλλαγή καθεστώτος στη Μόσχα όπως έκανε ο Jacob . Ισχυρίστηκε ότι η ρωσική συνωμοσία έφερε τον Τραμπ στο Λευκό Οίκο. Αρνήθηκε να αποδεχθεί τα αποτελέσματα της έρευνας του Mueller και εξακολουθεί να επιμένει ότι οι Ρώσοι παρενέβησαν στις εκλογές των ΗΠΑ. Τα λόγια του για "καταδικαστικές αποδείξεις" συμπαιγνίας με τη Ρωσία, "κάτι περισσότερο από περιστασιακά", ένα σκάνδαλο μεγέθους "πέρα από το Watergate" δηλητηρίασαν τις ρωσο-αμερικανικές σχέσεις και έκαναν την προεδρία Τραμπ μια κουτσή πάπια από την πρώτη στιγμή.

Ο Adam Schiff είναι τόσο ανέντιμος και άδικος που ακόμα και η WSJ επεσήμανε την καινοτομία του στη νομοθεσία. "Είναι αδιαμφισβήτητο αδίκημα για έναν πρόεδρο να αντιστέκεται στην μομφή; Ο Πρόεδρος της Υπηρεσίας Πληροφοριών Οίκου, Adam Schiff, δήλωσε στο CNN την προηγούμενη βδομάδα ότι η άρνηση αξιωματούχων του Λευκού Οίκου να καταθέσουν στην έρευνα μομφής της επιτροπής του μπορεί να οδηγήσει σε "παρακώλυση του Κογκρέσου" εναντίον του Προέδρου Τραμπ."



Ίσως, τελικά, ο Adam Schiff είναι συγγενής με έναν άλλο απατεώνα, τον Irwin Schiff, ο οποίος πέθανε σε ομοσπονδιακή φυλακή το 2015, ενώ εκτίει ποινή 13 ετών για φοροδιαφυγή. (Πιθανότατα είναι αντισημιτικό να αναφέρουμε την παλιά φράση ότι κάποιοι Εβραίοι μπορεί να είναι απατεώνες, αλλά θα το τολμούσαμε ούτως ή άλλως).
Ο επικεφαλής ανακριτής Daniel Sachs Goldman έχει εξαιρετική γενεαλογία για έναν εβραίο (έμπορο οχηματων ). Πήγε στο ίδιο σχολείο που πήγαν οι κόρες του Προέδρου Μπαράκ Ομπάμα, Σάσα και Μαλία, καθώς επίσης η Τσέλσι Κλίντον, τα εγγόνια του πρώην Αντιπροέδρου Τζο Μπάιντεν, η κόρη του Ρίτσαρντ Νίξον Τρίσια και ο γιος του Θεόδωρου Ρούσβελτ, Άρτσιμπαλντ".
Η σύζυγός του είναι Αντιπρόεδρος της Goldman Sachs Bank, "το μεγάλο βαμπίρ καλαμάρι τυλιγμένο γύρω από το πρόσωπο της ανθρωπότητας", με τα διάσημα λόγια του Matt Taibbi. Η οικογένειά του είχε δημιουργήσει ένα ειδικό πρόγραμμα που ονομάζεται The Born-Taglit. Το όνομα υποδηλώνει ότι κάθε Εβραίος έχει εκ γενετής δικαίωμα στη γη της Παλαιστίνης, σε αντίθεση με τους ιθαγενείς της.

Το πρόγραμμα επιτρέπει σε Αμερικανούς Εβραίους νέους να κάνουν ένα δωρεάν (ευγενική προσφορά του Αμερικανού φορολογούμενου) ταξίδι στο Ισραήλ, να συναντήσουν άλλους Εβραίους νέους άνδρες και κορίτσια και να ψάξουν για το γάμο τους μέσα στη φυλή. Σωστά, σε σας απαγορεύεται να εγκρίνετε τέτοια ρατσιστικά μέτρα, αλλά οι Εβραίοι επιτρέπεται να τα διαχειρίζονται ως φιλανθρωπία απαλλαγμένη από φόρους.

Η οικογένεια του Daniel Sachs Goldman είναι επίσης ιδρυτής του New Israel Fund, ενός άλλου φορολογικού ταμείου, το οποίο κατευθύνει χρήματα που εξοικονομούνται από τις φορολογικές αρχές των ΗΠΑ (όπου θα μπορούσαν να φθάσουν στην κυβέρνηση) προς σκοπούς μόνο για τους Εβραίους.

Ο George Soros είναι ένας ακόμα εξέχων Εβραίος συμμετέχων στις διαδικασίες μομφής. Το παλιό αυτό ερπετό είναι τόσο άσχημο που η ψυχή μας (όπως θα έλεγε και ο Oscar Wilde ) αισθάνεται και αυτή ανήθικη. Τα πραγματικά περιστατικά επιβεβαιώνουν την άποψη αυτή. Αν η Ουκρανία έχει μετατραπεί από μια χώρα της Ανατολικής Ευρώπης σε μια χλωμή ζοφερή κατεστραμμένη περιοχή καταστροφών, είναι εν μέρει υπεύθυνος.

Ενώ η μομφή αφορά την φερόμενη παρέμβαση του Τραμπ στην Ουκρανία, η υπόθεση των εχθρών του Τραμπ στην Ουκρανία είναι εύκολοαποδειχτη. Παρενέβησαν τόσο σκληρά στις συναλλαγές του φαινομενικά κυρίαρχου κράτους, που έλεγαν ένα αστείο μεταξύ τους: "Η Συνθήκη της Βιέννης είναι προαιρετική για το προσωπικό του Κιέβου". Η Σύμβαση της Βιέννης είναι η διεθνής συμφωνία που απαγορεύει στους διπλωμάτες να παρεμβαίνουν στις εσωτερικές υποθέσεις του κράτους στο οποίο είναι τοποθετημένοι.

Ένα μέρος αυτής της ανάμειξης είχε γίνει από και για τον Joe Biden, ο οποίος λήστεψε άφθονους πόρους από το ουκρανικό κράτος. Ο George Soros ήταν ένας άλλος δικαιούχος της δραστηριότητας του Στέιτ Ντιπάρτμεντ.

Έχει μερικές ΜΚΟ εκεί, και η Πρεσβεία των ΗΠΑ υπό την Πρέσβειρα Μαρί Γιοβάνοβιτς Yovanovitch (άλλη μια κατήγορος του Τραμπ) δρούσε ενεργά γι' αυτές. Ο Τζον Σόλομον ανακάλυψε ότι ένας από τους μάρτυρες της δίωξης στις ακροάσεις για την πρόταση μομφής, ο τότε πρεσβευτής Επιτετραμμένος George Kent (τώρα έχει αναρριχηθεί στην ευγενή θέση του υφυπουργού) ζήτησε από τις ουκρανικές αρχές να σταματήσουν την έρευνα για την ΜΚΟ του Soros, με το όνομα Κέντρο Δράσης για την Καταπολέμηση της Διαφθοράς (AntAC).

Επιπλέον, στις 5 Μαρτίου 2019,η Πρέσβειρα Yovanovitch είχε εκφωνήσει μια ομιλία ζητώντας την απομάκρυνση του ειδικού εισαγγελέα της Ουκρανίας κατά της διαφθοράς." Και αυτή η γυναίκα τολμά να μιλήσει για την παρέμβαση του Τραμπ!

Ο George Soros είχε τακτική πρόσβαση στο ουκρανικό γραφείο του Στέιτ Ντιπάρτμεντ, στην υφυπουργό Επικρατείας Victoria ("F*ck EU") Nuland. Είναι δύσκολο να γίνει διαχωρισμός μεταξύ των δυο , καθώς η AntAC είχε χρηματοδοτηθεί από κοινού από το Υπουργείο Εξωτερικών και τον George Soros. Αλλά ο Τζορτζ Σόρος είναι στο απυρόβλητο, καθώς ο Πρόεδρος της ADL Τζόναθαν Γκρίνμπλατ έχει ήδη αποφασίσει ότι " δίωξη του Σόρος… θα ισοδυναμούσε με τα χειρότερα αντισημιτικά τρόπαια".

Ένας πρώην Ομοσπονδιακός Εισαγγελέας της Περιφέρειας της Columbia, ο Joe DiGenova, διέπραξε αυτό το σοβαρό έγκλημα, όταν είπε στο ειδησεογραφικό πρακτορείο Fox ότι ο George Soros είχε την ευκαιρία να πει στο Υπουργείο Εξωτερικών μέσω της Victoria Nuland τι να κάνει στην Ουκρανία. "Ο Σόρος έτρεξε την δουλειά. Διέφθειρε αξιωματούχος του FBI, Διέφθειρε αξιωματικούς των ξένων υπηρεσιών.Ο Τζορτζ Σόρος θέλει να διοικεί την Ουκρανία και κάνει ό,τι μπορεί για να χρησιμοποιήσει κάθε μοχλό της κυβέρνησης των Ηνωμένων Πολιτειών για να το κάνει αυτό." Ο Joe DiGenova δεν ανέφερε την Εβραϊκότητα του Σόρος ή της φίλης του Νούλαντ. Δεν ήταν απαραίτητο. Μια επίθεση στον Τζορτζ Σόρος είναι μια επίθεση κατά των Εβραίων σε όλο τον κόσμο, ολοκλήρωσε ένας γνώριμος παρατηρητής.

Ο Joe DiGenova είναι όντως ένοχος, αλλά είναι λίγο μετριοπαθής. Ο Τζορτζ Σόρος επιθυμεί να ηγηθεί την Ουκρανία, ανέφερε. Η Ουκρανία είναι ένα μικρό, αλλά επικερδές μέρος του κόσμου που ο Σόρος και οι σύντροφοι του θέλουν να διοικήσουν . Οι "ΗΠΑ είναι πιο σημαντικό κομμάτι, και ελέγχοντας τις , μπορούν να πάρουν την Ουκρανία αντί πινακίου φακής.

Η μομφή έγινε πράγματι μια σημαντική υπόθεση, όχι μόνο ως απειλή για τον Πρόεδρο Τραμπ, αλλά επειδή αποκάλυψε τον τρόπο λειτουργίας των φιλελεύθερων Εβραίων. Θα ήταν καλύτερα, αντί για τον Ντόναλντ Τραμπ, ο αντίπαλός τους να ήταν ένας λευκός ιππότης. Αλλά έχουμε αυτό που έχουμε. Αυτοί οι τύποι πρέπει να σταματήσουν, και αν ο Τραμπ το κάνει, ευλογήστε τον.


Η τακτική του να δωροδοκεί Εβραίους με πλούσια δώρα της προγονικής παλαιστινιακής γης είναι ανήθικη, και αμφιβάλλω αν θα είναι αποτελεσματική. Ίσως αν ζητούσε δικαιοσύνη και ισότητα για την Παλαιστίνη θα είχε την ευκαιρία να πετάξει μια χιονόμπαλα στην κόλαση. Διαιρώντας τους εχθρούς του, μεταξύ Σιωνιστών και Φιλελευθέρων, βελτιώνει τις πιθανότητές του, ή έτσι σκέφτεται.

Για τους ανθρώπους που λατρεύουν και εκτιμούν την Παλαιστίνη όπως εγώ, αυτή είναι μια δύσκολη επιλογή. Οι Φιλελεύθεροι Εβραίοι ακούγονται πιο καλοί. Μιλούν κατά των εβραϊκών οικισμών στα κατεχόμενα εδάφη. Καταδικάζουν τον ισραηλινό βομβαρδισμό της Γάζας και της Συρίας.

Αλλά είχαμε μια μακρά εμπειρία της ανόδου τους: δεν κάνουν απολύτως τίποτα για την Παλαιστίνη και επιτρέπουν στο Ισραήλ να διαπράξει όλα τα πιθανά εγκλήματα. Μια καταδίκη δεν είναι αρκετά καλή αν δεν επηρεαστεί η ροή των όπλων και των οικονομικών.

Οι Εβραίοι έχουν συνηθίσει να παίζουν και για τις δύο ομάδες και να κερδίζουν δύο φορές. Αυτό το παιχνίδι μπορεί να αλλάξει πηγαίνοντας σε μια απολύτως απαγορευμένη περιοχή σκέψης, βλέποντας την ομάδα μομφής ως Εβραϊκή ομάδα,. Αν και όταν το Καπιτώλιο θα είναι ελεύθερο από την κατοχή, θα έρθει επίσης η ώρα για την ελευθερία της Ιερουσαλήμ.

ΤΟ ΜΕΓΑΛΟ ΔΙΛΗΜΜΑ ΤΟΥ ΤΡΑΜΠ: «ΠΡΩΤΑ Η ΑΜΕΡΙΚΗ» Ή «ΠΡΩΤΑ ΟΙ ΕΒΡΑΙΟΙ;»



ΥΓ Ενημέρωση περί νομικών-δικαστών

Έγραψα πρόσφατα: Κρατήστε τους νομικούς-δικαστές έξω από την πολιτική. Πρέπει να επιλέξουμε αν θέλουμε δημοκρατία ή κράτος δικαίου. Σε μια δημοκρατία, ο λαός κυβερνά μέσω των εκλεγμένων αντιπροσώπων του, στο κράτος δικαίου, κυριαρχούν οι νομικοί και οι δικαστές. Οι πολιτικοί θα πρέπει να έχουν ασυλία για όλη τη ζωή τους. Ο Ντόναλντ Τρούμπ και ο Μπίμπι Νετανιάχου δεν είναι άγγελοι, αλλά εκλέχθηκαν από τα έθνη τους και πρέπει να παραμείνουν άθικτοι. Αφήστε τους να κριθούν από την ιστορία, όχι από δικηγόρους, νομικούς, δικαστές.

Από τότε που το έγραψα, υπήρξαν εξελίξεις που επιβεβαίωσαν τη δυσπιστία μου στο επάγγελμα του δικαστή:

          

投稿日時も現在時刻もない、徹底した「時間の排除」が生んだTikTokの魅力と罠

「投稿日時も現在時刻もない、徹底した「時間の排除」が生んだTikTokの魅力と罠」の写真・リンク付きの記事はこちら

中国のバイトダンス(字節跳動)が運営する動画共有アプリ「TikTok」では、時間や日付の表示をほとんど目にすることがない。そうしたデザインは、TikTokでの体験にさまざまな影響を与えている。TOM SIBLEY/GETTY IMAGES

絶大な人気を誇る動画共有アプリ「TikTok」。15秒間のヴィデオがひたすら再生されるこのアプリは、文化的に大きな影響力をもっている。ラッパーLil Nas X(リル・ナズ・X)の「Old Town Road」をビルボードチャートの1位に押し上げたのも、VSCOガール(写真加工アプリ「VSCO」などを多用してSNS映えを競うティーンたちのこと)のような新たなサブカルチャーを生んだのもTikTokだ。

関連記事新鋭ラッパーのリル・ナズ・Xが放つボーダレスな曲は、いまという「時代の精神」を捉えている

TikTokは、いまや仕事で息抜きをするときの定番となっている。しかい、全世界で14億回もダウンロードされているTikTokには、あまり知られていないシンプルな側面がある。それはTikTokが時間にとらわれないアプリであるということだ。

ほかのソーシャルメディアプラットフォームとは異なり、TikTokは動画が投稿された日付や、ユーザーのアカウント開設時期といった情報を一切提供していない。アプリの画面を縦にスワイプすると、アルゴリズムが選んだレコメンド動画が次々に現れるが、どの動画であれ、投稿された日時を知る由はない。

ユーザーのプロフィールをタップすると、投稿動画が新しいものから順に並んでいるが、わかるのは再生回数のみだ。FacebookやTwitterでは、最も新しくアップロードされたコンテンツが優先的に表示されるようになっている。しかし、TikTokは時計の針が動く「チクタク」という音を名前の由来にしておきながら、「時間」そのものを除外している。そして、その方針はプラットフォームの隅から隅まで徹底されているのだ。

「時間」の概念を取り払うことで生まれる可能性

この方針によって得られる最も顕著な副産物といえば、それは数週間前どころか、数カ月前に投稿された動画であっても(インターネットで言えば大昔だ)、不意に拡散する可能性があることだ。なにしろTikTokでは、見る側は動画の古さがまったくわからないのだから。

「数週間前に投稿された古いコンテンツでも楽しんでもらえるのは素晴らしいことです。それと同時に、最新コンテンツではなく、数カ月前の動画を見ることになるのは腹立たしくもあります」と話すのは、TikTokで影響力をもつ投稿者「ティックトッカー」のひとりで、フォロワー数20万人を誇るモリア・ブライソン(@mannequindude)だ。「コンテンツ作成の妨げになるわけではありませんが、動画の投稿日時がわかりやすかったらいいのに、と思います」

ティックトッカーたちは、タイムスタンプがないことが腹立たしい場合もあると言う。しかし、世界で最も高い評価額を誇るスタートアップのひとつで、TikTokを運営する中国のバイトダンス(字節跳動)にとって、日付の非表示がエンゲージメントの増加にひと役買っているのはほぼ間違いない。

TikTokのフィードはエンドレスで、動画を見ているうちに、とんでもなく時間が過ぎていることがある。でも、TikTokで動画を視聴することと、Instagramの投稿をスクロールすることは違う。Instagramでは投稿日時が表示されているので、投稿者の写真を過去3年分もさかのぼって閲覧したことがわかるからだ。

「もしTikTokに似たような表示があれば、ひたすら続く動画を消費する際に邪魔になってしまうでしょう」と、イリノイ大学アーバナ・シャンペーン校でニューメディアを研究する教授のベンジャミン・グロッサーだ。グロッサーは、ソーシャルメディアに表示される「いいね」や「シェア」、タイムスタンプなどの数値を非表示にできるブラウザー拡張機能「Demetricator」を開発したアーティストでもある。

「新旧の差異」がなくなる

グロッサーによると、ソーシャルメディアに少し前に投稿された古いコンテンツに対するユーザーの反応と、新しいコンテンツに対する反応は基本的に異なるものだという。投稿から2日以上が過ぎたコンテンツはたいてい、どれも見たり読んだりする価値がないとみなされるのだそうだ。

例えば、誰かがFacebookのステータスに投稿した内容に1週間も経ってからコメントをするのは、ちょっとしたマナー違反にあたる。注意を払っていなかったか、ともすれば、こっそり嗅ぎまわっていたという意味になりかねない。けれどもTikTokの場合は、10日前に投稿された動画に「いいね」をしても、そうした問題は生じない。なぜなら、10日も前に投稿されたものだと知るすべがないからだ。

グロッサーはさらに、InstagramやSnapchat、Twitter、Facebookとは異なり、TikTokはユーザーに時間を確認させないようにしていると指摘する。iPhoneでは画面の上部に時刻が表示されるが、TikTokのアプリを開くとその時計が覆い隠されてしまう。

つまりTikTokの中毒者は、TikTokにどれほどの時間を費やしたかをすぐに確認することができない。そうした事態に対処すべく、最近はTikTokに費やした時間を頭の片隅で計算しながら、「動画をあと3本見たら仕事に戻ろう」などと自分に言い聞かせるようにしている。動画3本はおよそ1~2分だ。このような対策を立てれば、自分なりに頭のなかで時間を測ることができるとグロッサーは言う。なにせTikTokでは、普段は頼りにしている時計が表示されないのだから、仕方ない。

ニュース性をもたないことのメリット

時間を表示しないというTikTokの方針は、ユーザーの行動のみならず、TikTokで成功するコンテンツの種類も左右する。例えば、ニュース報道においてはタイムスタンプは不可欠な要素だ。しかし、TikTokはタイムスタンプをもたないことで、自分たちのプラットフォームは世界情勢を報じるものではなく、ただの「創造性をかき立てて、楽しさや喜びをもたらす場」にすぎないことを暗に伝えている。したがって、揉め事が起こる確率がはるかに低くなっている。

そうした雰囲気は、TikTokに動画を投稿している報道機関にも反映されている。例えば、『ワシントン・ポスト』が15万人近いフォロワーに向けて投稿する内容は、おおむねジョークや短いコントなどに限られており、最新ニュースはほとんどない。

ニュースコンテンツを投稿しようという気持ちをユーザーに起こさせないことで、政治的な偏りを告発されるなど、ほかのプラットフォームが巻き込まれている類いのスキャンダルを回避することができる。

ただしTikTokをめぐっては、投稿を検閲しているのではないかという懸念が生じている。『ガーディアン』は、TikTokの「コンテンツ適正化ガイドライン」を入手した。そこから、中国政府からTikTokスタッフに対して、同政府が要注意とみなすトピックと、一部の国でのLGBT関連コンテンツを検閲するよう指示を出していたことが明らかになったのだ。同社側は、そうしたガイドラインは古いものだと説明している。

困難になる正当性の担保

しかし、タイムスタンプを除外していることで、ほかの問題に晒される可能性がある。そのひとつが、誤った情報の拡散だ。動画が作成された日時がわからなければ、正当性を見分けることはかなり難しくなる。

例えば、ハッシュタグ「#protest」が付いた動画には、2019年9月に話題になった若者主導による気候変動ストライキと思われるものが数多く含まれている。だが、投稿日時がないので、正確かどうかを確認することは難しい。

関連記事気候変動に「ノー!」:子どもたちが学校をストライキしてまで訴えたかったこと

TikTokが時間を非表示にする一方で、Facebookをはじめとするほかのプラットフォームでは、このところ日時に関連したデータを以前にも増して提供するようにすることで、フェイクニュース問題に対処しようとしている。

例えば、ロシアがFacebookを利用して16年のアメリカ大統領選に介入した問題の発覚を受けて、Facebookは全ページの透明性を向上させるべく、ページの作成日や名称変更についての情報を確認できるようにした

ティックトッカーたちの声

また、日時を表示しないTikTokのやり方は、小さくも鬱陶しいことには変わりない影響も及ぼしている。

ウィスコンシン州在住のケイティ・スワンソン(@coupon_katie)は、60万人を超えるフォロワーに向けて、驚くほど高度なクーポン使用術を紹介しているママさんティックトッカーだ。彼女はお得なクーポンを見つけると、期限が切れる前に急いでクーポンが使える店に行くよう、フォロワーにせっせと呼びかける。とはいえ、その期限がいつなのか、フォロワーは知りようがない。スワンソンが動画を投稿した日付がわからないからだ。

「わたしが投稿する動画の多くは、時間的な制限があります。ですから、動画を見るタイミングが遅すぎると、クーポンを使えるかどうかがわからないことがあるのです」とスワンソンは言う。そこで彼女は最近、キャプションに日時を記入し始めた。「だいぶ前に投稿した古いコンテンツを見てもらえるのは嬉しいのですが、タイムスタンプがあったほうがいいですね」

TikTokの動画クリエイターたちは、プラットフォームに日付が表示されないせいで、コンテンツの盗用といった問題が深刻化していると指摘する。「似たような動画が同時期に流れ始めてしまい、誰が最初に投稿したのか、なかなか見分けることができません」と、20万人以上のフォロワーがいるティックトッカーのリアーナ・レネー(@leannuh47)は言う。

一部のティックトッカーは、自分が投稿した作品を把握するために、プラットフォーム内で唯一日時が記録される「コメント欄」を利用している。「動画がどのくらい前に投稿されたのかを知るには、コメント履歴を確認するしかありません」と、20万人以上のフォロワーをもつフードティックトッカーのジェシー・セイヘイは語る。「わたしは自分が投稿した動画に自らコメントするようにしました。そうすれば投稿日が正確にわかるからです」

ただし、TikTokのコメント欄にはタイムスタンプが記録されるものの、コメントの表示順は日付ではなくエンゲージメントによって決まる。つまり、最初のコメントが下のほうに表示され続けてしまう可能性があるのだ。

日付が表示される日も近い?

TikTokがついに日付表示に踏み切ろうとしている兆候はある。少なくとも、日付表示を増やすことで得られる効果についてテストを実施しているようだ。「近ごろは不意にタイムスタンプが表示されることがありますが、とくに一貫しているわけではありません。タイムスタンプの導入を実験している感じなのでしょう」と、レネーは言う。TikTokの広報担当者は、アプリを巡る具体的な変更やテストの内容についてはコメントしていない。

ほかのソーシャルメディアも、時間の表示を目立たなくすることで成果を上げているが、完全な非表示には踏み切っていない。ここ数年、FacebookとTwitter、Instagramで多くのユーザーをいらつかせたのが、アルゴリズムを使ったタイムラインを導入したことだ。それにより、標準設定では投稿が新しい順に表示されなくなってしまった。

コンテンツの数が膨大すぎるがゆえに、プラットフォームはユーザーに何を、いつ見せるのかを決める際に、日付の新しさ以上のものを考慮する必要がある。ソーシャルメディア企業は機械学習アルゴリズムに頼ることで、ユーザーの好みや履歴も考慮するようになっている。

TikTokはそうした戦略を、極端なまでに徹底させてきた。そのことは、TikTokが成功した理由だけでなく、TikTokが抱える問題の理由の一部にもなる。

TikTokが最終的に望んでいるのは、ユーザーが動画の投稿時期を気にしなくなることだけではない。おそらくは、その日の日付さえも忘れて、おすすめ動画をスクロールし続けてもらうことなのだろう。

Sucios

 Cache   

Semana 48. 333/33
Valeriano.

Aunque ningún país está exento de tales dificultades, hay muchos que están inmersos en una crisis ambiental. Así pues, te presentamos los 10 países más sucios que, aunque seleccionados primordialmente por la contaminación del aire, no es el único factor que los ha traído a esta lista “sucia”:

- Nigeria: Uniendo a la mala calidad del aire y los desechos que en este país usualmente se depositan en las calles o vertederos no regulados, el 94% de la población está expuesta a niveles de contaminación que rebasan los parámetros establecidos por la Organización Mundial de Salud Algunos vertederos de este país pueden alcanzar las 2400 toneladas métricas de basura.

- Emiratos Árabes Unidos: La producción de petróleo y gas ha favorecido la contaminación del aire, además se han incrementado los vertederos de desechos y no existen normas que regulen esta situación. Frente a ello, la teocracia árabe del país se propuso la creación de una ciudad completamente limpia, es decir, libre de carbón. La hipotética ciudad tendría el nombre de Masdar, ‘Fuente’.

- Nepal. La suciedad de este país se debe a la contaminación del aire, la producción de petróleo y las insuficientes medidas sanitarias para producir alimentos y realizar la recolección de basura. En el 2015 la ciudad de Katmandú, capital de Nepal, sufrió un violento terremoto que afectó seriamente la infraestructura de la ciudad; derivado de ello, los trabajos de reconstrucción han generado un «coctel» perfecto de contaminantes.

- Kuwait. La industria petrolera y el consumo de dicho producto ha provocado la contaminación del agua, la muerte de diversas especies y altas emisiones de CO2. Hacia 1991 tuvo lugar un suceso que aún se comenta para contextualizar los perjuicios que causa la contaminación. Durante un día entero la ciudad se vio oscurecida por una nube ocre que redujo la visibilidad a menos de 500 metros e hizo bajar la temperatura 15 Cº.

- Mongolia. El uso de carbón en actividades cotidianas ha favorecido la mala calidad del aire, lo que provoca que miles de personas mueran al año debido a enfermedades respiratorias. Según los últimos registros, Mongolia ha aumentado el promedio de su temperatura hasta 2.2 Cº. En Ulán Bator, capital de Mongolia, durante algunos «malos días» el contador de pm 2.5 ha registrado un terrorífico 999, la cifra más elevada que puede consignar este aparato.

- Bahrein. Las industrias más populares del país —gas y petróleo— han elevado los niveles de contaminación del aire y agua, además este país ha desestimado el mantenimiento de áreas verdes y el manejo de residuos. De acuerdo con un estudio de la George Washington University, la incidencia del asma infantil está estrechamente vinculada con la polución ambiental; en Bahrein, la incidencia de ésta entre los menores de edad es de 26%.

- Afganistán. Aquí es común que los residuos -domésticos, industriales y médicos- sean tirados en las calles o en cloacas abiertas, contaminando así el río Kabul, principal proveedor de agua potable. Según el Ministerio de Salud de este país, un promedio de tres mil muertes anuales podrían ser adjudicadas a los altos niveles de contaminación; las enfermedades vinculadas a este fenómeno son principalmente respiratorias y cardiovasculares.

- India. Las grandes plantas industriales no sólo han provocado la mala calidad del aire si no la contaminación del río Ganges, uno de los más sucios en el mundo, pues carece de un sistema eficaz de recolección de basura. La contaminación en este país —considerado el más populoso, después de China— es ya legendaria. Los niveles de polución pueden llegar a producir fenómenos francamente patéticos, como en el caso de los «perros azules» de Gwalior, ciudad de la India. Los perros adquieren esta tonalidad por los residuos químicos que son desechados en el río Kasadi.

99 Bottles Of Beer On The Touch Screen: The Spread Of Self-Serve Taps

 Cache   
Walters Sports Bar is a gleaming new pub just blocks from the largest stadium in Washington, D.C. The decor is industrial chic — exposed ducts and poured concrete floors — and it's spacious enough to accommodate the enormous throngs of elated fans who crowded in after the Washington Nationals' recent World Series win. On a recent night, the bar was quieter. Still, customer after customer strode up to a stainless steel wall lined with beer taps to insert a card, touch a screen and pour a glass of self-serve beer. No waitstaff. No waiting. "This is my first time doing a beer wall!" says one patron, Chris Porcaro, over a yeasty IPA. "I've been to many sports bars, but never a beer-wall sports bar." The shiny beer wall allows customers to choose from 23 different varieties of beer — or "24 if you count Bud Light," says owner Jeremy Gifford. Pour-your-own beer isn't just a novelty, Gifford says; the idea is to cut down on waiting for alcohol (which means selling more of it) and freeing up

He resigned as the Dolphins’ offensive line coach Oct. 9 Dwayne Allen Jersey , 2017.Foerster, though, has regained employment in the NFL, according to Jenna Laine of ESPN. Laine reports that the 49ers quietly hired Foerster in the offseason.Foerster, 57 Ryan Fitzpatrick Jersey , is not listed on the 49ers’ website but assists the coaching staff with game-planning, according to Laine.Foerster coached under Tony Dungy in Tampa from 1996-2001 when 49ers General Manager John Lynch played safety for the Bucs. He coached with Kyle Shanahan for four seasons in Washington.Before his resignation, Foerster was among the highest-paid assistant coaches in the league, according to Laine, with a salary between $2.5 million and $3 million a season.Foerster has coached since 1982 with nine stops in the NFL with seven different franchises since 1993. He said in January of 2018 that he completed a two-month stint in rehab at the HeadWaters at Origins Behavioral HealthCare in West Palm Beach Jordan Phillips Jersey , Florida. He called hitting bottom after the video “was what I needed.” During his year-plus in Miami, Minkah Fitzpatrick lined up at a variety of spots on the Dolphins defense.The Steelers don’t plan to employ Fitzpatrick in that manner early in his time with the team. Fitzpatrick was acquired in a Monday night trade and head coach Mike Tomlin outlined some of the team’s plans for him at a Tuesday press conference.Tomlin said that the plan is for Fitzpatrick to play free safety, which was occupied by Sean Davis before he went on injured reserve Tuesday.“He will be playing the safety position,” Tomlin said, via Will Selva of NFL Media. “We’ll quickly get him up to speed. He’s a sharp guy DeVante Parker Jersey , getting to know in the draft process.

The Steelers took Terrell Edmunds with the 28th overall pick and now both safeties will be in the same secondary

Kamala Harris' campaign manager is under fire, receives blame for decline

 Cache   

Kamala Harris' campaign manager is under fire, receives blame for declineSen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) isn't bouncing back after a precipitous decline in the Democratic presidential race -- and fingers are starting to point at her campaign manager.Juan Rodriguez has drawn the ire of both camapaign staffers and outside observers, The New York Times reports. "This is my third presidential campaign and I have never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly," state operations director Kelly Mehlenbacher wrote in a resignation letter obtained by the Times.Mehlenbacher clarified she still supported Harris as a candidate, but did not have confidence in the campaign's leadership. She specifically cited the campaign's decision to move people from Washington, D.C., to Baltimore, Maryland, and then "lay them off with no notice" and "without thoughtful consideration of the personal consequences to them."Harris and other senior staff members were reportedly blindsided and angered by the extent of the layoffs, and some aides reportedly found out about them from junior aides and the press rather than Rodriguez himself.One of Harris' congressional supporters, Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), said she told the senator she needs to make a change. "The weakness is at the top, and it's clearly Juan," she said. "He needs to take responsibility -- that's where the buck stops."More stories from theweek.com NBC's Chuck Todd was flabbergasted by a Republican senator's claim that the former Ukrainian president worked for Hillary Clinton What the Moomins can tell us about fighting climate despair The Democratic primary’s generational divide

Trump’s impeachment and the US ‘national interest’

 Cache   
Issue 
November 28, 2019

The Democratic impeachment inquiry began when a “whistleblower” revealed that US President Donald Trump had pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open an investigation of former vice-president Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Trump suspended military aid to Ukraine and made a White House visit by Zelensky — which the new Ukrainian president dearly wanted — conditional on him stating publically that such an investigation was underway.

Since the elder Biden is a possible Democratic opponent of Trump in the 2020 presidential campaign, the purpose of Trump’s demand was to get material that he could use against Biden should he become the Democratic nominee.

To demand of a foreign government that it work to help Trump personally is against the law.

A few days after the whistleblower’s complaint was made public, Trump beat a hasty retreat: he released the military aid and Zelensky never made the statement.

Trump’s violation of the law is relatively unimportant compared to his other crimes that do not form part of the impeachment inquiry: his administration’s war on asylum seekers on the US–Mexico border; his Muslim travel ban; increasing the extraction of fossil fuels; racism; misogyny and more.

Capital’s interests

From the beginning of the inquiry, the Democrats and the pro-Democratic media have introduced another line: Trump’s withholding of military aid was, they say, an attack on “national security” or “America’s interests”. In the final weeks of testimony before the House committee conducting the inquiry, this charge has been highlighted.

When capitalist politicians use terms like “national security” they are invariably referring to the interests of US imperialism. Withholding military aid to Ukraine was a violation of US imperialism’s interests, but not the interests of US workers.

The interests of US imperialism in Ukraine are both economic and political.

Ukraine is rich in natural resources, especially its fertile “black soil” agricultural lands and natural gas. It was a prized possession of the Russian Tsarist empire. It was known as the Soviet Union’s “bread basket”. German imperialism sought to capture these resources in both World War I and II.

Following the overthrow of the Soviet Union by its bureaucratic caste led by the misnamed Communist Party, and the return to capitalism, Ukraine sought relations with the US-led West as well as with capitalist Russia.

Ukraine has two main ethnic groups — Ukrainian-speakers and Russian-speakers. The former are mainly in western Ukraine and the latter in the east and south. At times Ukrainian-speakers occupied the presidency, and before 2014, the president was a Russian-speaker. 

This equilibrium was upset in 2014 when the Russian-speaking president was overthrown. A more right-wing government was installed that began to restrict democratic rights, especially of Russian-speakers. Russian, which had been one of the officially recognised national languages, was stripped of that status. A civil war ensued between the east and west, with Russia supporting the Russian-speakers and the West the government in Kiev.

US in Ukraine

This provided an opening for the US to move in, reducing Ukraine to a subordinate country dependent on Washington, with two areas in the east forming their own governments.

Contrary to US promises made at the time of the overthrow of the Soviet Union, the US brought a number of East European countries formerly in the Soviet orbit into NATO, as well as some former Soviet republics. If Ukraine was to become part of NATO, that would bring the US-sponsored military alliance to the Russian border.

In 2014, it appeared that the new Ukraine would join NATO. That provides a possible explanation of why Russian President Vladimir Putin backed the breakaway regions of eastern Ukraine.

It would also explain why Russia then re-annexed Crimea.

A bit of history of Crimea is useful. Russia, under Catherine the Great, took Crimea from the Ottoman Empire in 1783. In 1853, Britain and its allies invaded Crimea but the war exhausted Britain. When the war finally ended in 1856, Crimea was once again Russian, but with the proviso that Russian warships would not be stationed at the Sevastopol port.

After the Russian Revolution in 1917 and the subsequent establishment of the USSR, Ukraine became a separate Soviet Socialist Republic (SSR) under the Bolshevik’s policy of national self-determination for nations under the former Tsarist empire. Crimea became part of the Russian Soviet Socialist Republic because of its mainly Russian population.

In 1954, the Soviet government under Nikita Khrushchev made Crimea part of the Ukrainian SSR, largely for administrative reasons. This was hardly noticed internationally as it was still part of the USSR. No one claimed that Ukraine had “stolen” Crimea from Russia.

When Ukraine became independent in 1991, various agreements were made between it and Russia. One was that Russia would have control over the former Soviet naval base in Sevastopol. If Ukraine became part of NATO, that base, the only Russian warm water port, would fall into NATO and US hands, which Russia could not tolerate.

The US still wants to get the Sevastopol naval base, which is why it is pushing for Crimea to be a part of Ukraine.

The Democrats are the champions of these “interests” today. Trump, with the Republicans dutifully in tow, is claiming that it was the Ukrainians, not the Russians, who “meddled” in the 2016 US elections to help Hillary Clinton. The Democrats claim the opposite — that the Russians meddled, giving the victory to Trump.

In fact, every government that has the technology to do so “meddles” in other countries’ politics, with Washington being the Meddler-in-Chief.

At times, when elections in other countries do not go the way the US wants, it “meddles” by overthrowing the government of the offending country.

Trump is a US phenomenon, not a Russian or Ukrainian one.

A basic feature of modern monopoly capitalism and imperialism has been the increasing centralisation of power in the hands of the executive at the expense of the legislative and judicial branches. This has been true in the US beginning in the early 20th century under both Democratic and Republican administrations.

However, the growth of executive power is not without its own perils to the ruling class. If a dictator, or would-be dictator, starts to put their personal interests above those of the capitalist class as a whole, which is what Trump has done, by withholding military aid and by attacking Ukraine while going soft on Putin, then that executive is truly harming the “national interest” of US imperialism.

Trump should be impeached on the charge of attempting to force Ukraine to further his electoral ambitions, not for harming the “national interest” of dominating Ukraine, which is not in the interests of US workers.

All this is only one aspect of the deep divisions in the ruling class concerning Trump. How this plays out in conjunction with other issues in the upcoming election campaign remains to be seen.

Digitalisierung | Die größte Propaganda-Maschine der Geschichte

„Borat“-Darsteller Sacha Baron Cohen kritisiert in einer Rede Tech-Firmen wie Facebook, YouTube, Google oder Twitter scharf. Hier können Sie sie im Wortlaut lesen
Die größte Propaganda-Maschine der Geschichte

Der britische Schauspieler und Komiker Sacha Baron Cohen hat in einer Rede Facebook und andere soziale Medienplattformen scharf kritisiert, die Verbreitung von Hassreden und Falschinformationen zu unterstützen. Seine Dankesrede für die Verleihung des International Leadership Awards der amerikanischen Anti-Defamation League (ADL), war bemerkenswert ernsthaft. Der unter anderem als „Borat“-Darsteller bekannte Komiker hielt erstmals eine Rede als er selbst und nicht als eine der satirischen Figuren, in deren Rolle er schlüpft.

Baron Cohen bezeichnete die Tech-Unternehmen als „größte Propaganda-Maschine der Geschichte“. Insbesondere kritisierte er Facebook und folgerte: Da politische Werbung nicht auf ihren Wahrheitsgehalt überprüft werde, hätte das Unternehmen auch Hitler erlaubt, die Plattform für Propaganda zu nutzen.

Die Rede nach seinem Skript im Wortlaut (hier im englischen Original):

Zunächst möchte ich der ADL für ihre Anerkennung und für ihren Einsatz im Kampf gegen Rassismus, Hass und Fanatismus danken. Und wenn ich „Rassismus, Hass und Fanatismus“ sage, meine ich nicht die Namen von Trump-Berater Stephen Millers Labradoodles.

Mancher von Ihnen wird jetzt denken: Was zum Teufel macht ein Komiker als Redner auf einer solchen Konferenz!? Und ein Komiker bin ich. Den Großteil der vergangenen zwanzig Jahre habe ich damit verbracht, verschiedene Rollen zu verkörpern. Heute ist das erste Mal in meinem Leben, dass ich als der am wenigsten beliebte meiner vielen Charaktere auf der Bühne eine Rede halte – als Sacha Baron Cohen. Und ich muss zugeben, es macht mir Angst.

Auch ist mir klar, dass mein Hiersein aus einem anderen Grund unerwartet sein könnte. Gelegentlich halten Kritiker mir vor, meine Art der Comedy berge das Risiko, alte Stereotype zu verstärken.

Aber die Wahrheit ist, dass mein Leben lang mein Anliegen war, Fanatismus und Intoleranz zu bekämpfen. Als Teenager in Großbritannien demonstrierte ich gegen die faschistische National Front und für die Abschaffung der Apartheid in Südafrika. Als Student bereiste ich Amerika und schrieb meine Abschlussarbeit über die Bürgerrechtsbewegung, wobei ich in den Archiven der Anti-Defamation League recherchierte. Und als Komiker setzte ich meine verschiedenen Rollen ein, um die Menschen dazu zu bringen, ihre Deckung aufzugeben und zu zeigen, was sie wirklich denken und ihre eigenen Vorurteile zu erkennen.

Nicht alles, was ich gemacht habe, diente einem höheren Zweck

Dabei möchte ich nicht so tun, als hätte alles, was ich gemacht habe, einem höheren Zweck gedient. Ja, ein Teil meiner Comedy – ok, wahrscheinlich die Hälfte meiner Comedy – hatte etwas Jugendliches und die andere Hälfte war komplett infantil. Ich gebe zu, dass ich nichts besonders Erleuchtendes an mir hatte, als ich – als Borat aus Kasachstan, dem allerersten Fake-News-Journalisten – komplett nackt durch eine Versammlung von Hypothekenmakler rannte.

Aber als es „Borat“ gelang, eine gesamte Bar im amerikanischen Bundesstaat Arizona dazu zu bringen, ‚Werft den Juden in den Brunnen’ zu singen, demonstrierte das die Gleichgültigkeit gegenüber Antisemitismus. Und als ich – als Bruno, der homosexuelle Mode-Reporter aus Österreich – während eines Cage Fight-Kampfes in Arkansas einen Mann küsste und damit fast einen gewaltsamen Aufruhr anzettelte, zeigte das das Gewaltpotential der Homophobie. Ein anderes Mal war ich als ultra-politisch-korrekter Stadtentwickler verkleidet und schlug vor, in einer ländlichen Gemeinde eine Moschee zu bauen. Als ein Einwohner daraufhin stolz zugab: „Ich bin rassistisch – gegen Muslime“ – sagte das viel über die Akzeptanz von Islamfeindlichkeit.

Daher freue ich mich sehr über die Gelegenheit, heute hier zu sein. Auf der ganzen Welt sprechen derzeit Demagogen unsere schlimmsten Instinkte an. Verschwörungstheorien, die früher ein Randphänomen waren, sind im Mainstream angekommen. Es ist, als gehe das Zeitalter der Vernunft – die Ära von beweisbarer Argumentation – zu Ende. Wissen wird abgewertet und wissenschaftlicher Konsens abgelehnt. Demokratie, die auf gemeinsamen Wahrheiten beruht, ist auf dem Rückzug. Dagegen sind autokratische Regierungssysteme, die auf geteilten Lügen basieren, auf dem Vormarsch. Hassverbrechen nehmen ebenso zu wie mörderische Angriffe auf religiöse und ethnische Minderheiten.

Was haben all diese gefährlichen Trends gemeinsam? Ich bin nur ein Komiker und Schauspieler, kein Wissenschaftler. Aber eins scheint mir ziemlich offensichtlich. All dieser Hass und die Gewalt werden durch ein paar wenige Internet-Unternehmen ermöglicht, die zusammen die größte Propaganda-Maschine in der Geschichte darstellen.

Die größte Propaganda-Maschine in der Geschichte

Machen Sie sich das klar. Facebook, YouTube und Google, Twitter und andere erreichen Milliarden von Menschen. Die Algorithmen, von denen diese Plattformen abhängen, unterstützen bewusst Inhalte, die die Nutzer bei der Stange halten – Geschichten, die unsere niederen Instinkte ansprechen, die Wut oder Angst auslösen. Aus diesem Grund empfahl YouTube Videos des Verschwörungstheoretikers Alex Johnson milliardenfach weiter. Fake News stechen echte Nachrichten aus: Studien zeigen, dass sich Lügen schneller verbreiten als die Wahrheit. Dabei überrascht es nicht, dass die größte Propaganda-Maschine in der Geschichte die älteste Verschwörungstheorie in der Geschichte verbreitet – die Lüge, Juden seien irgendwie gefährlich. Wie es eine Schlagzeile formulierte: „Malen Sie sich aus, wozu Goebbels Facebook benutzt hätte“.

Im Internet kann alles gleich legitim erscheinen. Breitbart wirkt nicht anders als die BBC. Die fiktiven Protokolle der Elders of Zion sehen genauso gültig aus wie ein ADL-Bericht. Und das Gegeifer eines Verrückten wirkt genauso glaubhaft wie die Erkenntnisse eines Nobelpreisgewinners. Insgesamt scheint es, als sei der Konsens über die notwendigen Grundlagen für Demokratie verlorengegangen.

In der Rolle des Möchte-Gern-Gangsters Ali G fragte ich einmal den Astronauten Buzz Aldrin: „Wie war’s denn auf der Sonne herumzuspazieren“? Der Witz funktionierte, weil das Publikum das Wissen um die Fakten teilte. Für jemanden, der die Mondlandung für Fake hält, ist der Witz nicht lustig.

Als Borat die Menschen in der Bar in Arizona dazu brachte, zuzustimmen, dass „Juden das Geld aller Menschen kontrollieren und nie zurückgeben“, funktionierte der Witz nur, weil das Publikum weiß, dass die Beschreibung von Juden als geizig eine Verschwörungstheorie ist, die aufs Mittelalter zurückgeht.

Aber wenn sich dank der sozialen Medien Verschwörungstheorien etablieren, erleichtert das nicht nur Hassgruppen, Anhänger zu rekrutieren. Es hilft auch, ausländischen Geheimdiensten, unsere Wahlen zu manipulieren und einem Land wie Myanmar Genozid an der ethnischen Gruppe der Rohingya zu verüben.

Aus einer Verschwörungstheorie kann Gewalt entstehen

„Es ist schockierend einfach, Verschwörungsdenke in Gewalt umzumünzen“

Dabei ist es schockierend einfach, Verschwörungsdenke in Gewalt umzumünzen. Bei der Vorbereitung meiner jüngsten Show von „Who is Amerika?“ kam mir als Interviewpartner ein gebildeter, normaler Mann unter, der seinen guten Job nicht verloren hatte. Dennoch verbreitete er über die sozialen Medien viele der Verschwörungstheorien, die Präsident Donald Trump mehr als 1.700 Mal über Twitter an seine 67 Millionen Follower geschickt hat. Einmal hatte der US-Präsident sogar getwittert, er überlege die Antifa – Anti-Faschisten, die gegen die Rechtsextremen demonstrieren – als Terrororganisation einzustufen.

Als israelischer Anti-Terror-Experte Colonel Erran Morad getarnt, erzählte ich meinem Interviewpartner, dass die Antifa vorhabe, bei einer Demonstration für Frauenrechte in San Francisco Hormone in die Windeln von Babys einzuschmuggeln, um sie „transgender“ zu machen. Und er hat es geglaubt.

Ich wies ihn an, an drei in Wahrheit unbescholtenen Leuten auf der Demonstration kleine Sprengkörper unterzujubeln. Ich erklärte ihm, wenn er einen Knopf drücke, würde er eine Explosion auslösen, die sie alle tötet. Es war natürlich kein echter Sprengstoff, aber er ging davon aus. Mein Ziel war herauszufinden, ob er es wirklich tun würde.

Die Antwort ist: Ja. Er drückte den Knopf und dachte, er hätte wirklich drei Menschen getötet. Voltaire hatte Recht, als er sagte: „Wer dich veranlassen kann, Absurditäten zu glauben, kann dich auch dazu bringen, Gräueltaten zu verüben.“ Und die sozialen Medien erlauben es Autoritären, Absurditäten an Milliarden Menschen weiterzuleiten.

Zur Verteidigung der Tech-Unternehmen sei gesagt, dass sie durchaus Maßnahmen ergriffen, um Hass und Verschwörung auf ihren Plattformen einzudämmen, aber die Schritte waren zumeist nur oberflächlich.

Die Demokratie steht auf dem Spiel

Ich ergreife heute hier das Wort, weil ich glaube, dass unsere pluralistischen Demokratien vor einem Abgrund stehen und dass die nächsten zwölf Monate und die Rolle der sozialen Medien entscheidend sein könnten. Die Briten gehen zur Wahlurne, während im Internet Verschwörungstheoretiker die verabscheuungswürdige Theorie verbreiten, dass weiße Christen gezielt durch muslimische Immigranten ersetzt werden. Unterdessen wählen die US-Amerikaner nächstes Jahr einen neuen Präsidenten, während Trolle und Bots die widerliche Lüge von einer „hispanischen Invasion“ am Leben erhalten. Und nach der jahrelangen Verbreitung von YouTube-Videos, die den Klimawandel eine Lüge nennen, sind die USA dabei, sich in einem Jahr offiziell aus dem Pariser Klimaabkommen zurückzuziehen.

Das Internet als Kanal für Fanatismus und niederträchtige Verschwörungstheorien, die Demokratie und unseren Planeten bedroht, ist wohl kaum, was die Erfinder des Internets im Sinn hatten.

Es ist an der Zeit, die sozialen Medien und die Art und Weise, wie sie Hass, Komplotte und Lügen verbreiten, zu überdenken. Aber erst vergangenen Monat warnte Facebook-Chef Mark Zuckerberg wenig überraschend in einer Rede davor, Gesetzen und Regulierungen für Tech-Unternehmen einzuführen. Einige seiner Argumente sind einfach absurd. Lassen Sie mich sie Punkt für Punkt durchgehen.

Zunächst versuchte Zuckerberg, das Ganze als ein Problem darzustellen, das „die Redefreiheit betrifft“. Das ist lächerlich. Es geht nicht darum, irgendjemandes Redefreiheit einzuschränken. Hier geht es darum, Leuten – darunter einigen der verwerflichsten Zeitgenossen weltweit – die größte Plattform in der Geschichte zu geben, über die sie ein Drittel des Planeten erreichen. Meinungsfreiheit ist nicht gleich dem Recht auf Reichweite. Leider wird es immer Rassisten, Frauenhasser, Antisemiten und Missbrauch an Kindern geben. Aber ich denke, wir können uns alle darauf einigen, dass wir Fanatikern und Pädophilen keine unbeschränkte Plattform geben sollten, um ihre Ansichten zu verbreiten und ihre Opfer ins Visier zu nehmen.

Zweitens behauptete Zuckerberg, dass neue Beschränkungen für das, was auf den sozialen Medien veröffentlicht werden darf, „die freie Meinungsäußerung einschränken“. Das ist völliger Unsinn. Der erste Zusatzartikel der Verfassung der USA schreibt vor, dass „der Kongress kein Gesetz beschließen darf“, das die Redefreiheit beschneidet. Allerdings gilt das nicht für private Unternehmen wie Facebook. Wir fordern von diesen Unternehmen ja nicht, die Grenzen der Redefreiheit in der ganzen Gesellschaft zu bestimmen. Wir wollen nur, dass sie dafür verantwortlich sind, was auf ihren Plattformen veröffentlicht wird.

Angenommen, ein Neonazi betritt im Stechschritt ein Restaurant, bedroht andere Gäste und verkündet, Juden töten zu wollen. Würden wir dann von dem Restaurantbesitzer erwarten, dass er ihm ein elegantes Acht-Gänge-Menü serviert? Natürlich nicht! Der Restaurantchef hat das gesetzliche Recht und die moralische Verpflichtung, den Nazi rauszuschmeißen. Dasselbe gilt für diese Internetfirmen.

Das ist ideologischer Imperalismus

„Zuckerberg redet Unsinn“

Punkt drei: Zuckerberg schien, die Regulierung von Tech-Unternehmen mit dem Vorgehen „der repressivsten Gesellschaften“ gleichsetzen zu wollen. Und das von einem der sechs Menschen, die entscheiden, welche Informationen so viele Menschen auf der Welt zu sehen bekommen. Neben Facebook-Chef Zuckerberg sind das Google-CEO Sundar Pichai, Alphabet Larry Page und Sergey Brin beim Google-Mutterkonzern sowie Brins frühere Schwägerin Susan Wojcicki bei YouTube und Twitter-Erfinder Jack Dorsey.

Die Silicon Six sind ausschließlich Milliardäre und alle sind US-Amerikaner oder Amerikanerinnen. Es ist ihnen wichtiger, ihre Aktienpreise in die Höhe zu treiben als die Demokratie zu schützen. Das ist ideologischer Imperalismus – sechs nicht gewählte Individuen in Silicon Valley drücken dem Rest der Welt ihre Vision auf, ohne einer Regierung rechenschaftspflichtig zu sein. Es ist, als stünden sie über dem Gesetz, als lebten wir im Römischen Reich und Mark Zuckerberg wäre Cäsar. Das würde zumindest seinen Haarschnitt erklären.

Da kommt mir eine Idee: Statt die Silicon Six über das Schicksal der Welt entscheiden zu lassen, wie wäre es, wenn die vom Volk gewählten politischen Vertreter aller Demokratien auf der Erde zumindest ein bisschen was zu sagen hätten?

Punkt vier: Zuckerberg sprach davon, eine „Vielfalt der Ansichten“ zu begrüßen, und im vergangenen Jahr hat er uns dafür ein Beispiel gegeben. Er sagte, er fände Beiträge, die den Holocaust leugnen, „zutiefst anstößig“, meine aber nicht, dass Facebook sie aus dem Netz nehmen sollte. Seine Begründung: „Ich glaube, dass es Dinge gibt, die die verschiedene Menschen falsch verstehen“. Auch heute sind noch Holocaust-Leugner auf Facebook. Unterdessen leitet einen Google durch einen einfachen Klick auf die widerwärtigsten Holocaust-Verleugnungsseiten. Unfassbarer Weise sagte mir einer der Google-Chefs einmal, diese Webauftritte zeigten nur „beide Seiten“ des Themas. Das ist doch Wahnsinn.

Um den verstorbenen amerikanischen Journalisten Edward R Murrow zu zitieren: „Nicht bei jedem Thema gibt es zwei gleichwertige und logische Seiten der Argumentation“. Es liegen Millionen Beweisstücke für den Holocaust vor – er ist eine historische Tatsache. Ihn zu verleugnen, ist keine zufällige Meinung. Wer den Holocaust verleugnet, zielt darauf hin, einen neuen zu ermutigen.

Wie soll man wissen, dass eine Lüge eine Lüge ist?

Und dennoch sagt Zuckerberg, dass „die Menschen entscheiden sollten, was glaubhaft ist, nicht Tech-Unternehmen.“ Aber wir leben in einer Zeit, in der zwei Drittel der Millennials angeben, dass sie noch nie von Ausschwitz gehört haben. Wie sollen sie wissen, was „glaubhaft“ ist? Wie sollen sie wissen, dass die Lüge eine Lüge ist?

Es gibt so etwas wie eine objektive Wahrheit. Fakten existieren. Und wenn diese Internet-Firmen wirklich etwas verändern wollen, dann sollten sie genügend Mitarbeiter anstellen, die die Inhalte tatsächlich überprüfen, eng mit Gruppen wie der ADL zusammenarbeiten, auf Fakten bestehen sowie Lügen und Verschwörungsthesen von der Plattform entfernen.

Punkt fünf: Zuckerberg wies auf die Schwierigkeiten hin, die die Sperrung von Content mit sich bringt. „Wo zieht man die Grenze?“, fragte er. Ja, diese Grenze zu ziehen, kann schwer sein. Aber eigentlich sagt er: ,Mehr dieser Lügen und Verschwörungen aus dem Netz zu verbannen, ist einfach zu teuer‘.

Dabei sprechen wir von den reichsten Unternehmen der Welt, mit den besten Ingenieuren der Welt. Sie könnten diese Probleme lösen, wenn sie wollten. Twitter könnte einen Algorithmus anwenden, der mehr „White Supremacy“-Hassreden entfernt. Aber laut Berichten hat das Unternehmen davon Abstand genommen, weil es dadurch einige sehr prominente Politiker von seiner Plattform verbannen müsste. Vielleicht wäre das gar keine so schlechte Sache! Die Wahrheit ist, dass die Tech-Unternehmen sich nicht grundsätzlich ändern werden, weil ihr gesamtes Geschäftsmodell darauf aufbaut, Nutzer zu engagen. Und nichts generiert eben mehr Engagement als Lügen, Angst und Empörung.

Es ist Zeit für Standards

Es ist an der Zeit, diese Unternehmen endlich als das zu bezeichnen, was sie wirklich sind – die größten Verbreiter von Inhalten aller Zeiten. Daher mein Vorschlag an Facebook und Co: Wenden Sie die gleichen grundlegenden Standards und Praktiken an, an die sich Zeitungen, Zeitschriften und TV-Nachrichtensendungen jeden Tag halten. Auch bei Film und Fernsehen gelten solche Standards und Praktiken: Es gibt Dinge, die wir nicht sagen dürfen. In England beispielsweise durfte Ali G nicht fluchen, wenn die Sendung vor 21 Uhr ausgestrahlt werden sollte.

Hier in den USA reguliert und bewertet die Motion Picture Association of America, was wir sehen. Es gab Fälle, in denen ich Szenen aus meinen Filmen schneiden oder kürzen musste, um Standards einzuhalten. Wenn es solche Regeln dafür gibt, was Kinos und Fernsehkanäle zeigen dürfen, dann sollten Unternehmen, die Inhalte an Milliarden Menschen veröffentlichen, sich ebenfalls an grundlegende Standards und Vorgaben halten müssen.

Nehmen wir die Frage der politischen Werbung. Glücklicherweise hat Twitter sie am Ende verboten und Google arbeitet ebenfalls an Veränderungen. Aber wenn man dafür bezahlt, veröffentlicht Facebook jede „politische“ Werbung, die man will, selbst wenn eine Lüge darin steht. Zudem wird das Unternehmen den Inserenten auch noch dabei unterstützen, diese Lügen per Mikro-Targeting gezielt an Nutzer zu schicken, um die Wirkung zu optimieren. Wenn es Facebook in den 1930ern schon gegeben hätte, hätte es nach dieser verdrehten Logik Hitler erlaubt, 30-Sekunden-Werbespots für seine „Lösung“ des „jüdischen Problems“ zu schalten.

Drosselt das Tempo

Eingebetteter Medieninhalt

Hier ein Vorschlag zur Verbesserung von Standards und Praktiken an Facebook: Fangt an, politische Werbung auf ihren Wahrheitsgehalt hin zu überprüfen, bevor sie veröffentlicht wird, und die Verbreitung von Lügen per Mikro-Targeting sofort zu stoppen. Wenn Werbung Lügen enthält: einfach Geld zurück und nicht veröffentlichen!

Eine weitere „gute Praxis“ möchte ich empfehlen: Drosselt das Tempo. Nicht jeder Beitrag muss sofort veröffentlicht werden. Oscar Wilde sagte einmal, „wir leben in einem Zeitalter, in dem unnötige Dinge das einzige sind, was wir für lebensnotwendig halten“. Aber ist es wirklich notwendig, jeden Gedanken oder jedes Video sofort online zu stellen, selbst wenn sie rassistisch oder kriminell oder mörderisch sind? Natürlich nicht!

Der Schütze, der in Neuseeland zahlreiche Muslime niedermetzelte, übertrug seine Gräueltaten per Live-Stream auf Facebook, wo es dann über das ganze Internet verbreitet und vermutlich millionenfach angeschaut wurde. Es war ein Snuff-Film, also einer, der echte Morde zeigt – der Öffentlichkeit präsentiert von den sozialen Medien. Wieso kann es nicht mehr Aufschub geben, so dass derartiger traumatisierender Schmutz abgefangen und gestoppt werden kann, noch bevor er veröffentlicht wird?

Wo bleiben die Konsequenzen?

Zum Abschluss sprach sich Zuckerberg dafür aus, dass die Social Media-Unternehmen „ihrer Verantwortung gerecht werden“ sollten. Aber er sagte nichts zu den Konsequenzen, wenn sie es nicht tun. Mittlerweil ist ziemlich klar, dass man nicht darauf bauen sollte, dass sie sich selbst regulieren. Wie damals angesichts der Industriellen Revolution ist es heute Zeit für Regulierung und Gesetzgebung, die die Gier dieser skrupellosen Hi-Tech-Kapitalisten Einhalt gebietet.

In jeder anderen Branche kann ein Unternehmen zur Verantwortung gezogen werden, wenn sein Produkt Mängel aufweist. Wenn Motoren explodieren oder Sicherheitsgurte nicht funktionieren, müssen Autofirmen zehntausende Autos zurückrufen. Das kostet unter Umständen Milliarden von Dollar. Es erscheint daher nur fair, Facebook, YouTube und Twitter aufzufordern: Euer Produkt ist mangelhaft, ihr seid verpflichtet, es in Ordnung zu bringen, egal, was es kostet, und egal, wie viele Mitarbeiter ihr für die Überprüfung der Inhalte einstellen müsst.

In jeder anderen Branche kann man für den Schaden, den man anrichtet, verklagt werden. Verleger können wegen Verleumdung, Individuen wegen übler Nachrede verklagt werden. Mir ist das schon oft passiert! Gerade werde ich von jemandem verklagt, dessen Namen ich lieber nicht nenne, weil er mich erneut verklagen könnte! Dagegen sind die Social Media-Unternehmen weitgehend von der Verantwortung für Inhalte, die ihre Nutzer veröffentlichen, befreit – egal wie unanständig die Inhalte sind. Diesen Schutz gewährt Absatz 230 des – ziehen Sie sich warm an – Communications Decency Act, dessen Hauptziel die Bekämpfung von Pornographie im Internet war. Absurd!

Freiheiten sind kein Selbstzweck

Zum Glück können Internet-Firmen mittlerweile für Pädophile verantwortlich gemacht werden, die ihre Seiten nutzen, um Kinder anzusprechen. Ich sage, wir sollten Tech-Firmen auch dafür verantwortlich machen, wenn Leute ihre Seiten nutzen, um den Massenmord von Kindern wegen ihrer Rasse oder Religion zu befürworten. Und vielleicht reichen Geldstrafen nicht. Vielleicht ist es Zeit, Mark Zuckerberg und den CEO der anderen Unternehmen zu sagen: Ihr habt bereits zugelassen, dass eine Supermacht sich in unsere Wahlen eingemischt hat, ihr habt bereits einen Genozid in Myanmar unterstützt. Macht das nochmal und ihr geht ins Gefängnis!

Letztlich läuft alles auf die Frage hinaus, was für eine Welt wir haben wollen. In seiner Rede bezeichnete es Zuckerberg als eines seiner Hauptziele, „eine möglichst weite Definition der freien Meinungsäußerung zu erhalten“. Doch unsere Freiheiten sind kein Selbstzweck, sondern auch Mittel für größere Ziele: In den USA bezeichnet man sie als Recht auf Leben, Freiheit und das Streben nach Glück. Doch heute sind diese Rechte durch Hass, Verschwörung und Lügen bedroht.

Erlauben Sie mir, dass ich mit einem Vorschlag schließe, die Zielsetzung unserer Gesellschaft neu zu definieren. Es darf nicht sein, dass Menschen wegen dem, was sie sind, woher sie kommen, wen sie lieben oder wie sie beten, verfolgt, belästigt oder ermordet werden. Das zu verhindern, muss das ultimative Ziel der Gesellschaft sein.

Wenn wir die Wahrheit der Lüge vorziehen, die Toleranz dem Vorurteil, Empathie der Gleichgültigkeit und Experten den Ignoranten – dann können wir vielleicht – nur vielleicht – die größte Propaganda-Maschine der Geschichte stoppen, die Demokratie retten und einen Raum für Redefreiheit und freie Meinungsäußerung erhalten. Und vor allem: Dann werden meine Witze weiter funktionieren.

Ich danke Ihnen allen sehr.

AI, cyberbullying hot topics at safety conference

 Cache   
by Larry Magid This post first appeared in the Mercury News. I’m on my way to Washington, D.C., for the Family Online Safety Institute’s (FOSI) annual conference. I have attended almost all of these events since they started in 2007, usually as a speaker, in my role as CEO of ConnectSafely.org. Simply looking at the event’s agenda gives us an idea what’s concerning internet safety advocates, technology executives and government policy makers. The first session, “Online Safety in an AI World” highlights the concern around artificial intelligence. AI can be incredibly beneficial. Along with speech recognition, it powers home digital assistants like Amazon Echo, Google Home and Apple SIRI. It enables companies like Santa Cruz-based Full Power Technologies to analyze your sleep patterns with a net-connected device under your mattress to analyze sleep patterns and make recommendations.  AI is the driving force behind self-driving cars and a crucial component of face and voice recognition, which can help make us safer and more secure. Indeed, a paper to be presented at the conference points out that AI can be used to “combat the spread of child sexual abuse material through technologies such as Microsoft’s PhotoDNA.” But it’s “not without its risk,” pointing to “misinformation such [...]

Twitter, Google to restrict targeted political ads on platforms

 Cache   

Online platforms responding to criticism that tech giants, particularly Facebook, are not doing enough to curtail false claims in ads

Nov. 22, 2019
By Walt Williams

New restrictions on political advertising on Twitter and Google will deprive associations and other groups of two relatively easy means to target specific audiences with messaging, according to outside observers.

Twitter implemented a near-total ban on political ads on Nov. 22, or roughly three weeks after company CEO Jack Dorsey announced the policy in a series of tweets. The ban applies to most paid political content, although there is a potential loophole that allows organizations to use ads to raise awareness about issues as long as they don’t advocate a specific course of action.

Google, which also owns YouTube, announced Nov. 21 that it will no longer allow political ads in the U.S. to target users based on public voting records or political affiliations, bringing the policy in line with existing regulations in many other countries.

However, Google ads can still target audiences based on age, gender and location, and groups can continue to run ads relating to the content users are viewing (such as a news story on the economy).

Both moves are viewed by many observers as a response to criticism that Facebook has received for refusing to pull political ads that contain falsehoods. In justifying Twitter’s decision, Dorsey said his company originally considered only banning candidate ads, “but issue ads prevent a way to circumvent.”

“We’re well aware we’re a small part of a much larger political advertising ecosystem,” Dorsey said. “Some might argue our actions today could favor incumbents. But we have witnessed many social movements reach massive scale without any political advertising. I trust this will only grow.”

Twitter defines banned political content as content “that references a candidate, political party, elected or appointed government official, election, referendum, ballot measure, legislation, regulation, directive or judicial outcome.”

Ads that reference political content are also banned, as are ads from candidates, political parties and elected and appointed officials.

Twitter receives relatively little revenue through political advertising, which is likely a reason the platform is banning the practice almost entirely.

Associations and other advocacy groups can still use Twitter to promote political content or launch issue campaigns. They just can’t buy ads. The biggest change such groups will notice is they will no longer be able to use the platform to target certain audiences, such as lawmakers and their staff in Washington, D.C., according to Nick DeSarno, director, digital and policy communications, for the Public Affairs Council.

Twitter advertising “is much more cost effective and direct and targeted than if they had to do so through the Washington Post or Politico,” he said.

Political action committees of all kinds are banned from advertising on Twitter. In a statement to CEO Update, Micaela Isler, executive director of the National Association of Business PACs, said her group believes democracy works best when all American can participate in the political process in a way that works best for them.

“For millions of voters, social media clearly is a tool for engagement,” she said. “For millions of others, that tool is their company PAC.”


          

Gerard’s cumulative pay at API tops all trade group CEOs

 Cache   

New tax documents show Jack Gerard took home $10.3 million in 2018, bringing total pay to $61 million over nearly 10 years

GerardGerard

Nov. 22, 2019
By Walt Williams

Jack Gerard, former CEO of the American Petroleum Institute, earned $10.3 million during his final year leading the influential trade group, according to financial disclosures filed in November.

Gerard retired from the $234 million-revenue API in 2018, ending a nearly 10-year run as head of one of the most powerful business advocacy groups in Washington, D.C. He had previously led the American Chemistry Council and the National Mining Association.

Gerard’s final months at API marked the second time his annual salary crossed into eight-figure territory. Only two other trade group CEOs have earned $10 million or more in a single year—Billy Tauzin in 2010 ($11.5 million), the year he left Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, and possibly Jack Valenti in 2004, the last year of his 38-year tenure at the Motion Picture Association. (IRS-required reporting on take-home pay before 2008 was less explicit, so it's unclear if Valenti received all $11 million in that year.)

Other 501(c)(6) CEOs have earned more in a single year, but those organizations were sports-related groups such as the National Football League (which dropped its tax-exempt status in 2015) and PGA Tour.

The biggest chunk of Gerard’s 2018 take-home pay—$7.6 million—came from a supplemental executive retirement plan payout, most likely a 457(f) plan, that had accumulated since the former CEO’s last big payout in 2013, when he took home pay of $13.3 million.

Gerard also has earned more over a 10-year timespan than any other trade group CEO. From November 2008 through July 2018, he earned $61 million. Even Tom Donohue, longtime CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, can’t match that record. Donohue took home $59.8 million over 11 full years, including his 2018 compensation of $6.9 million.

Tax-exempt groups are still filing their latest reports to the IRS, but it’s highly unlikely any other trade group CEO will come near Gerard’s 10-year earnings.
 
Well-oiled lobbying machine

Gerard began his political career in 1981 as a staffer for former Rep. George Hansen and later former Sen. James McClure, both Republicans from his home state of Idaho. He partnered with McClure in 1990 to launch a government relations consulting firm.

Gerard joined API at the very end of President George W. Bush’s administration. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney were both oil men, and their approach to regulatory policy reflected that fact. However, the election of President Barack Obama in 2008 resulted in an administration more open to the concerns of environmentalists and other critics of the oil industry.

API would spend much of the Obama administration fighting efforts to tighten regulations against greenhouse gases, restrict oil and gas drilling on federal lands, and block construction of energy infrastructure projects such as the Keystone XL pipeline. The group is also a major critic of the Renewable Fuel Standard, which requires ethanol to be blended with motor fuels.

One advantage API has long had in its advocacy efforts is the oil industry’s deep pockets. Under Gerard’s watch the group spent more than $400 million on public relations efforts, according to tax returns reviewed by the Center for Public Integrity. Most of the money went to PR giant Edelman, although the firm cut ties with API in 2015, reportedly because it no longer wanted to be associated with organizations that funded climate change denial. (API said at the time it was not a climate change denier.)

Still, the oil industry’s fortunes rise and wane with oil prices, and in 2015 API absorbed America's Natural Gas Alliance, a trade group that shared many members with API.

Since then the industry’s advocacy outlook has improved. President Donald Trump has rolled back several environmental regulations opposed by API and granted oil refineries a large number of exemptions to the Renewable Fuel Standard.

Gerard’s successor at  API is Mike Sommers, who was chief of staff to former House Speaker John Boehner before becoming CEO of the American Investment Council.  Gerard has since become a General Authority Seventy of  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, one of the highest positions within the church.

White aims to boost impact of appraisers association

 Cache   

Top executive brings experience in health care groups, events management and value of taking time for one-on-one lunches with staff

White
White

Nov. 22, 2019
By Tom Squitieri

Johnnie White sensed the board of the American Society of Appraisers wanted its next CEO to take charge and navigate the organization to a more vibrant and visible level. So during his job interview White suggested that board members should step aside if they hired him and let him do just that. Run the organization.

“You (the board) need to stay at the strategic level and let me handle the operations,” White explained during an interview with CEO Update.

They did, and then he did.

White, who joined ASA as CEO on April 15, said the 17-member board “had been so down in the weeds, the organization could not be as efficient as it should be.”

White said board members are now going through a governance training program to understand how a board stays at a strategic level. He expects that training to be completed by January. He said this new way of thinking should provide the foundation for efforts to increase the visibility and impact of ASA, which is based in Reston, Va., and reported revenue of $5.7 million in its most recent tax filing.

White’s priorities begin with ensuring that ASA is seen as “the preeminent appraisal designation.”

More specifically, he wants to bring into the membership thousands of appraisers now working without a professional net, boost education opportunities for appraisers in the U.S. and abroad, and introduce students and other younger individuals to the benefits of being an appraiser.

The task could be seen as daunting. But bear in mind that White is a Dallas Cowboys fan in Washington Redskins territory: He knows how to confront challenges and maneuver with agility.

Prescription for change

White’s move to ASA was a deliberate shift. He has worked at associations and nonprofits throughout his career, but mostly in the health care arena. He spent more than eight years at the Endocrine Society, then nearly five years at the Cardiovascular Research Foundation. Before joining ASA, White was senior director at the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, where he oversaw global education, meetings and strategic partnerships.

Much of his professional focus has been on meetings and events. He was board chairman of PCMA (Professional Convention Management Association) in 2013; the group honored him with a Visionary Award for lifetime achievement in 2016. He is also a public speaker and an adjunct instructor at Georgetown University’s Global Hospitality Management Program.

White said he has had offers to join other health care associations but chose ASA for the challenge presented in a field entirely new to him.

Potential for growth

ASA touts itself as the oldest appraisal-related association and the only major group covering all specialties.

There are five broad categories of appraisal review and management: business valuation, gems and jewelry, machines and technical specifies, personal property and real property. White says there is much room for growth in membership in all of those areas.

“For example, we have 6,000 members (in ASA). Real estate is our third largest area and there are 80,000 state-licensed real estate appraisers operating. There is potential to grow there,” White said. (ASA is one of a number of associations in the appraisal industry. The Chicago-based Appraisal Institute, which represents real estate appraisers, says it has 18,000 members.)

Many appraisers have state licenses or certifications and do not understand the value of obtaining the more professional status of ASA credentials, he said. To bring in some of these individuals, ASA launched a new membership category for state-certified real property appraisers. Those appraisers can get discounts on conferences, enroll in a local or virtual chapter and access other ASA resources. Ideally, these “Ally” members will “see the benefit (of full membership) and hopefully down they line they will move up in the organization,” White said.

ASA’s current membership is skewing older, so attracting younger generations is critical. One way is through new student membership options. Another innovation: A podcast series titled “Stories of Value” debuted in October to look at the human side of the appraisal profession.

When White was hired, ASA put out a press release that praised, among other things, how White “set himself apart by demonstrating his intellect and his outstanding leadership qualities, especially in the area of inspiring others to achieve their best with his team-building management style.”

White said he found that ideas from staff were sometimes stymied at ASA in the past. The group currently has 28 staffers plus two temporary employees. One way he is opening a communications channel is through a lunch outreach program, something he has used successfully at other organizations. He regularly invites a different staff member to lunch and “we just sit there and talk about anything and everything.”

“I am encouraging (staff) to come to me with ideas. I give them opportunities to do that,” White said. “No idea is a bad idea unless you don’t tell me what it is.”


          

¡Las democracias deben condenar los ataques a la Iglesia en Nicaragua!

 Cache   
Nicaragua está calificado como país “no libre” en el Informe “Freedom in the World 2019” (“Libertad en el mundo 2019”) publicado este año por Freedom House. Ésta es una organización independiente con sede en Washington que vigila y apoya el cambio democrático al tiempo que monitorea el estado de la libertad en el mundo y aboga por la democracia y los derechos humanos.

Su oficina en América Central y el Caribe ha emitido una declaración sobre el asedio gubernamental al templo de San Miguel Arcángel, en Masaya, en el que madres de presos políticos empezaron a llevar adelante una huelga de hambre el pasado 14 de noviembre –junto con el párroco Edwin Román– y en la que exigían la liberación de sus familiares.

“Hay una crisis política y humanitaria en Nicaragua”, dijo Deborah Ullmer, directora de Freedom House para América Latina y el Caribe al poco tiempo que empezó a trascender esta situación. Agregó en aquel entonces: “Estamos preocupados por la salud y la seguridad física de las madres de los presos políticos que están en huelga de hambre y que se encuentran en estado de sitio en la iglesia de San Miguel Arcángel en Masaya”.

En opinión de Ulmer, las madres estaban protestando con toda razón dada “la prisión injusta de los miembros de su familia, mientras que las fuerzas de policía y simpatizantes de Ortega han impedido su acceso al agua, la electricidad, y la asistencia médica”. En ese sentido, Freedom House destacó en un comunicado que “las democracias deben condenar la violencia y los ataques a los lugares de culto”.

Más adelante, Ulmer expresó, a nombre de Freedom House la solidaridad con los más de 130 presos políticos y sus familias, y llamó a los gobiernos democráticos para que expresen “su rechazo a las acciones violentas cometidas por el gobierno de Nicaragua y sus partidarios, y exigir el retorno a la democracia”.

El sitio y el asedio contra los lugares de culto en Nicaragua se ha intensificado en las últimas semanas, sobre todo desde que un grupo de madres de presos políticos se puso en huelga en Masaya. La Catedral y otros templos de Nicaragua han sido, también, objeto de hostigamiento.

MANAGUA
@arquimanagu

En Masaya, trece activistas que intentaron proporcionar agua a las madres fueron detenidos por la policía y acusados de que transportaban ilegalmente armas. Los seguidores de Ortega han atacado, golpeado y vejado a sacerdotes, fieles y a obispos. La situación, lejos de aminorar, se complica cada día más.

Si en el Informe 2019 de Freedom House sobre Nicaragua el país tiene una calificación en libertad de 32 puntos sobre 100, seguramente, y dada esta hostilidad brutal a la Iglesia católica, a los templos, los sacerdotes y los fieles católicos hará bajar más su índice de libertad, derechos civiles y políticos.

The link was intended to make Lithuania less dependent on Russia and Belarus for electricity. It was eventually completed.. Adult Toys

It a little more complicated than this. Some adults are also extremely vulnerable for one reason or another. Severely disabled adults are already protected under the law, but some are not actually disabled but merely in a position where a powerful and secure adult can easily manipulate and exploit them (for example, due to poverty, lack of relationship experience, and a history of mental illness and abuse).

What I will say to you is this: By all means hate society at large, it is worthy of your hate, same for human beings in general but you shouldn project this onto every single person you meet. If you don want to be alone forever you need to at least give people a chance to prove they are not assholes before you write them off and this is mostly done by being at the very least civil to them. I noticed you are pretty quick to jump on people on here and I get that part of that is probably just because alot of us come here to vent, I do the same sometimes (both the venting and the jumping), but bare in mind everyone says dumb shit sometimes and everyone will have some opinion or another you disagree with.

In the last few years I predicted Corbyn (before he even got on the ballot for Labour leader), Trump, Brexit, and the result of last year general election. I won thousands betting on these. Admittedly I was wrong about Sanders losing the democratic primary in 2016.

wholesale dildos I really wanted this one to be of better quality. It looks awesome on the photo. It was the most bendable probe, I could roll it into a little ball in my hand and use it as a stress grip ball. This is such a fascinating topic. My answer is no, I wouldn't treat a boy and a girl any differently in infancy. Gender stereotypes shouldn't be imposed on infants the most common is probably the pink/blue thing, but why when there are so many gender neutral colors? Unfortunately, I doubt educating parents about these sorts of stereotypes will not produce a large effect. wholesale dildos

To put this into perspective, for each 1 degree of temperature increase, grain yields decline by about 5 per cent. Maize, wheat and other major crops have experienced significant yield reductions at the global level of 40 megatonnes per year between 1981 and 2002 due to a warmer climate.Oceans have warmed vibrators, the amounts of snow and ice have diminished and sea level has risen.

wholesale vibrators Sex and rape are not different kinds of apples, or even apples and oranges. They're apples and slugs: two things so different that the only thing they really have in common is that they can happen to the same person, in some of the same places on their body, just like apples can live in the same soil and climate as slugs. But we'd never confuse one for the other, nor would we offer a salad with fresh slugs on it to anyone and expect them to be happy about it or ourselves accept slugs as a tasty stand in for an apple with our lunch.. wholesale vibrators

Mankell is a detective of society who keenly uncovers evidence of Sweden's social ills that will resonate with Americans. This delightful gem of an album focuses on the music of emblematically Dominican bachata via the Haitian diaspora found on that side of the island.

"Ti Pouchon" reveals the endless riches of the African roots that nurtured American blues, Dominican bachata and Haitian kompa.

dildos Another thing to think about is that even when you are feeling relaxed and aroused, intercourse or any other insertive sex is likely a fairly new sensation (even if you've used tampons in the past, they're generally much smaller in diameter than anything else you'd be inserting other than a small finger), and it's something that can take some time to get used to. One thing that might be helpful is if you get some basic latex gloves from a drugstore (or non latex ones if either of you has an allergy) and try insertion with fingers either yours or your partner's and a lot of lube, to get used to the sensation. Gloved fingers are a lot smoother and less likely to have any sort of sharp fingernail issues than ungloved ones, so I think that'll help, and some people find that using their hands, or having their partners use their own vibrators, can be easier because it's easy to feel how your body's responding. dildos

dildo As we should all be aware from thousands of years of human history, youth sexuality and by this we mean sexuality of those under what is the current legal age of majority in the United States, in other words, eighteen years of age poses no real threat to us when it is entered into and developed responsibly and compassionately. It is, in fact, biologically inevitable that we develop sexually at puberty in physical ways. Historically, the advent of sexual activity, both masturbatory and partnered, has generally been assumed to be a natural adjunct of this physical development. dildo

'My Fake Rake' Turns The Makeover Trope On Its (Well-Coiffed) Head

 Cache   
My Fake Rake, by Eva Leigh
Avon

In literature and pop culture, we often see women getting makeovers to meet standards for beauty and social status (think Cinderella, or Mia Thermopolis in The Princess Diaries). In Eva Leigh's My Fake Rake, however, it's the quiet non-alpha hero who blossoms into a rake and sweeps the heroine off her feet.

Sebastian Holloway is an anthropologist who can recite facts at the drop of a hat, but suffers from social anxiety. He has a secret crush on his scientist friend Lady Grace Wyatt — but feels he has nothing to offer a woman of her status. "Your world isn't my world. Never has been," he tells her at one point.

Whether or not that's true isn't the takeaway here, though. From the get-go, Leigh identifies the imbalance of power between Sebastian and Grace — tipped in Grace's favor — and it's gratifying to read about a heroine in a historical romance who wields some power over the hero.

For one, Grace has wealth and social status. Even when she struggles to get the attention of a fellow scientist, Mason, and recruits Sebastian to make him jealous, it's evident who wears the breeches in this friendship. Step one in turning Sebastian into a polished society rake? Teaming up with his friend the Duke of Rotherby to give him a makeover and etiquette lessons.

Grace convinces Sebastian to see the whole process as an anthropological study on how the upper crust lives. But of course, real feelings start to get in the way, for both of them. It's safe to say that Sebastian is pretty perfect for Grace; they've formed a kinship based on their shared academic fascinations and sense of displacement from London society. As expected in friends-to-lovers and fake relationship plots, they keep their feelings to themselves out of fear of rejection, to the extent that they pretend a steamy kiss was just that — pretending. As a result, their romance (or lack thereof) stays on a low simmer throughout the book — understandably so, as Grace is still attracted to Mason, at least until her feelings for Sebastian can't be denied anymore.

Now, the makeover romance can be controversial at times; everyone wants to be loved for who they are. But Leigh uses the trope to critique societal pressure — and ultimately transforms it into a positive experience for her characters.

Rotherby and Grace's pedagogical approaches to grooming Sebastian speak volumes about how superficial their surroundings can be. "We're trying to impress London Society, and it doesn't care whether or not you feel any sense of personal fulfillment. It merely wants to know if you've got a carriage and a country estate," Rotherby scolds Sebastian when he resists the makeover.

The same quote applies to Grace in many ways, as she's forced to put herself on the marriage mart and meet social standards of femininity in order to be accepted. And still, her illustrious scientific career gets squashed under familial (and societal) pressure to settle down. "A burr of anger flared within her, that a woman could not exist in this world on her own," Grace laments after her father guilt-trips her into finding a suitor, thereby setting her fauxmance with Sebastian in motion. "She would always be subject to a man's munificence, always be less than because she'd been born a female."

While Leigh makes it clear how absurd those drastic plans for the fake relationship and makeover are, she also uses them to bolster Grace and Sebastian's self-confidence. For Grace, the fauxmance-at-first makes her feel wanted and more secure in herself, and for Sebastian, it helps him overcome his anxiety.

They may have started this journey as fish out of water, but by its end, Grace and Sebastian learn to be more amphibious — joke intended. My Fake Rake is a feast of female empowerment, positive friendships, feel-good moments, and social satire. And as the first book in a series, it builds a delicious world you'll want to come back to — hopefully because the delightful supporting characters will get their own stories next.

Taken to Brink by Trump, Gulf States Are Backpedaling on Iran

 Cache   

Taken to Brink by Trump, Gulf States Are Backpedaling on Iran(Bloomberg) -- An expanded soccer tournament, a direct flight, clandestine meetings and a pledge to release prisoners of war; diplomacy is breaking out as Gulf Arab nations back away from a Donald Trump-inspired confrontation with Iran. And the signs are everywhere.Last week, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain played their first games of the 2019 Arabian Gulf Cup in Qatar after a last-minute decision to take part -- an apparent breakthrough in a 30-month feud that saw them halt trade and flights over Qatar’s links with Iran and support for Islamist groups.Meanwhile, the Saudi-led coalition that’s fought Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen since 2015 began releasing jailed Houthis, as efforts to end the conflict gather momentum. Oman is quietly hosting high-level meetings, according to people familiar with the matter, and even Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has hinted at direct channels with the U.A.E.Spooked by the prospect of a catastrophic war with Iran and its proxy militias across the region, Gulf monarchies are in the midst of a strategic rethink. The U.A.E., whose economic model relies in large part on its international links, quickly realized it had most to lose from a military escalation. It had removed most of its troops from Yemen by the end of a turbulent summer that saw oil tankers targeted and a U.S. drone downed in the Gulf without significant American response.While the humanitarian catastrophe unleashed by the Yemen war trained an unwelcome spotlight on Saudi Arabia, it took a brazen strike on Saudi oil installations -- which knocked out half the country’s crude production -- to ram home the risks and prove that Trump was not about to ride to his allies’ rescue.“The attacks shattered any illusion of this magical U.S. security umbrella,” said David Roberts, an assistant professor at King’s College London who studies the Gulf. “It burst the bubble and showed that Iran had the willingness to both do something astonishing like the attack on Aramco facilities and the capability to carry it out.”Iran denies U.S. and Saudi assertions it carried out the Sept. 14 strikes, pointing to Houthi claims of responsibility. But people familiar with investigations into the attacks say they were almost certainly launched from southwestern Iran -- an explosive escalation in Tehran’s pushback against an economic offensive unleashed by Trump and enthusiastically backed by the Saudis.The Trump administration withdrew last year from the 2015 deal meant to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear bomb, and reimposed sanctions that have crippled its oil exports. But the “maximum pressure” policy is designed to coax Tehran into more concessions not to drag the U.S. into a new Middle East war just as it draws down troops in Syria.Rolling back Shiite Muslim Iran’s power remains a priority for the Sunni Gulf Arab leadership. There’s an increasing recognition, however, that no one stands to gain from a military escalation in the world’s top oil-exporting region.Saudi Arabia’s Center for International Communication didn’t respond to an email seeking comment. The U.A.E. declined to comment. But in a Nov. 10 speech, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said he saw “a path to a deal with Iran that all parties might soon” be ready to embark on if Tehran demonstrated commitment.War to ‘Cold Peace’In search of a breakthrough, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, a former cricketer elected with the backing of a powerful army that provides extensive support for the Saudi military, shuttled between Tehran and Riyadh in October. He met Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Rouhani, as well as Saudi Arabia’s King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, describing talks as “encouraging.”Khan said he traveled at the request of Trump and Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir said the diplomacy wasn’t prompted by the kingdom. But deepening unease in the Gulf catalyzed the effort.Turning these overtures into lasting peace between countries that have grown further apart since the 1979 Iranian revolution remains far off.The Gulf states resent Iran’s deep reach into Arab nations. While ongoing protests in Iraq and Lebanon suggest Iran has reached the limit of its regional influence, they are unlikely to reverse political and military advances decades in the making.“Cold peace is possible but we are certainly far from a grand bargain,” said Afshin Molavi, senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Institute at Johns Hopkins. “For that, both Riyadh and Abu Dhabi would have to accept a role for Iran in Arab countries such as Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.”As they explore ways forward, Gulf states are moving at different speeds.The U.A.E. broke with the U.S. and Saudi Arabia by not naming Iran as the culprit behind attacks in May and June on oil tankers as they sailed toward the Strait of Hormuz, the world’s foremost oil shipping chokepoint.It sent coast guard officials to Iran for the first time in six years and Rouhani hinted at other meetings with senior U.A.E. officials. “We’re moving toward improved relations,” he said Oct. 14. Saudi Arabia is catching up.Washington built a multilateral naval operation to protect shipping in the Gulf after the attacks and sent more troops to Saudi Arabia. Both actions resulted in a “down tick” in Iranian actions,” U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Nov. 13. “The Iranians should not mistake our restraint for weakness.”Where the U.S. holds back, however, others are crowding in. Besides his role in saving Bashar al-Assad’s regime, Russian President Vladimir Putin has forged a partnership with Iran, created an oil alliance with Saudi Arabia and built ties with Egypt’s Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, who was warned by the U.S. last month against plans to purchase Russian jets.Putin traveled to Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E. in October after visits by the Saudi king and the U.A.E.’s de-facto leader Mohammad bin Zayed to Moscow. The two Gulf countries and Russia have signed deals valued at billions of dollars.For Iran’s Rouhani, the case for regional engagement is obvious.“Don’t you know that Iran is going to stay here and we will remain neighbors throughout history?” he has said, referring to Iran’s Arab neighbors. “Trump will only be around for a few years and will go back to whatever it was he was doing.”\--With assistance from Golnar Motevalli and Glen Carey.To contact the reporter on this story: Zainab Fattah in Dubai at zfattah@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Lin Noueihed at lnoueihed@bloomberg.net, Mark WilliamsFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Center for Reproductive Rights comprehensive digital map shows the ‘No Roe Reality’ of abortion laws, restrictions,and protections on the books - including those laws currently blocked by the courts
Primary Content

(PRESS RELEASE) – Today, the Center for Reproductive Rights unveiled a new and improved digital tool, What if Roe Fell, showing the current state of abortion access across the United States, including the 5 most populous U.S. territories and the District of Columbia.  If the Supreme Court limits or overturns Roe v. Wade, abortion access would be at risk in almost one-half of U.S. states. The new tool shows that abortion access is challenging in many parts of the U.S. due to state restrictions.

For the first time in three years, the tool has been overhauled to add new search features so users can sort states based on the types of bans, restrictions, and protections in place in each state. Not only is this the most comprehensive digital map on abortion access currently available, it showcases the importance of the courts that have permanently prevented many abortion bans and restrictions from going into effect as well as those laws currently on hold as the Center and other organizations challenge the laws in state and federal courts.

What if Roe Fell shows the devastating landscape of abortion access if Roe is weakened or overturned,” said Nancy Northup, President and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights. “We have analyzed the laws and constitutional protections of every state. This tool is a call to action to pass state and federal laws protecting abortion rights and abortion access.”
 

This one-of-a-kind interactive digital map provides an overview of current abortion bans, restrictions, and protections across the country, including:

  • Trigger bans – abortion bans that could be triggered if the federal right is overturned
  • Abortion bans broken down by the number of weeks of pregnancy
  • 7 kinds of restrictions targeting specifically abortion providers (facility requirements, admitting privileges, etc.)

The Center’s new map shows the state of abortion access in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the five most populous U.S. territories:

  • 7 states have expanded access to abortion care and protect abortion rights under state law: California, Connecticut, Hawaii, New York, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington.
  • 14 states protect abortion rights under state law: Alaska, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, and Rhode Island
  • 8 states/district/territories where abortion is not protected under state, district or territory law: Colorado, District of Columbia, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Virginia, and Wyoming.
  • 24 states/territories that are hostile to abortion: Alabama, American Samoa, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Guam, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, the Northern Mariana Islands, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wisconsin

The map also shows laws are on the books that are currently on hold due to litigation as well as laws that have been blocked from going into effect.

What If Roe Fell also includes a glossary of terms commonly used in abortion conversations, as well as a comprehensive history of abortion access across the U.S. since the Supreme Court’s decision on Roe in 1973.

The Electoral College?s Racist Origins

More than two centuries after it was designed to empower southern white voters, the system continues to do just that.

Photo by Frank Scherschel/The Life Picture Collection/Getty

(The Atlantic) Is a color-blind political system possible under our Constitution? If it is, the Supreme Court?s evisceration of the Voting Rights Act in 2013 did little to help matters. While black people in America today are not experiencing 1950s levels of voter suppression, efforts to keep them and other citizens from participating in elections began within 24 hours of the Shelby County v. Holder ruling and have only increased since then.

In Shelby County?s oral argument, Justice Antonin Scalia cautioned, ?Whenever a society adopts racial entitlements, it is very difficult to get them out through the normal political processes.? Ironically enough, there is some truth to an otherwise frighteningly numb claim. American elections have an acute history of racial entitlements?only they don?t privilege black Americans.

For centuries, white votes have gotten undue weight, as a result of innovations such as poll taxes and voter-ID laws and outright violence to discourage racial minorities from voting. (more)


A Thanksgiving feast that?s rooted in vintage African-American stories

southwestern turkey(Palm Beach Post) The author of the landmark 2015 book ?The Jemima Code? has a new cookbook filled with culinary inspiration from U.S. history?s long overshadowed chefs. And what a holiday meal they can spark in our kitchens today.

What is a Thanksgiving meal if not history on a plate?

Sure, there?s the American history part of the holiday, the narratives we dramatize in grade school and too often reduce to cartoony details, like pilgrim salt-and-pepper shakers. There?s the immigrant history part of it, as America?s emerging communities embrace the holiday as their own. (As in my family?s Cuban black beans, alongside the mojo-marinated turkey.) And there?s the family history part of it, with our yearly repetition of dishes served in memory of loved ones no longer with us.

The obligatory star of the table, of course: a big, roasted turkey. But who says the centerpiece dish, or any other dish, has to be the same as it ever was? Author and cultural historian Toni Tipton-Martin?s latest cookbook proves there?s a well of new inspiration to be found in the most vintage of stories. We can be purists and innovative at once. (more)


Opinion: Yes, African American history will improve Texas schools

It is vital that students, regardless of race, see themselves in the important parts of history.

Bessie Coleman_African American History

Pioneer aviator Bessie Coleman stands on the wheel of a plane in this 1920s photo. Coleman gave exhibition flights in the United States as well as Europe earning the name ‘Queen Bess’ and tried her best to become famous. But outside the segregated black world in which she lived, few people ever paid attention.

(Dallas Morning News) Taught properly, history offers insight into a society as an archive of what we consider important enough to pass on to future generations. So we were elated to learn that the state Board of Education is ready to approve African American studies electives for high school students in Texas.

Over the years, we?ve criticized the State Board of Education for promoting ideology over facts in Texas history during their often contentious discussions of what students should learn in classrooms. And this resulted in major omissions, and even distortions, of the roles that Texans of color played in making this a great state.

Our hope is that this is about to change. Less than two years after the state board approved Mexican American studies, the board early next year is expected to approve its first African American studies course. “We will be passing this,” said Pat Hardy, a Fort Worth Republican member of the 15-member board responsible for setting curriculum standards and adopting textbooks for Texas public schools. (more)


Historic area church restored | Iconic black church will soon be open to the community

Union Baptist Church here has undergone a complete restoration and brings one of the state’s most important historic sites as close as possible to its original 1883 condition.

Union Baptist Church_Jefferson

(Texarkana Gazette) While the church was designated a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark in 2011, it spent decades in a state of increasing disrepair. The multi-year project has been overseen by the Jefferson-based Collins Academy and the Dallas-based Today Foundation. Both organizations were founded by Richard H. Collins.

Collins is a philanthropist and a preservationist who has underwritten multiple education and cultural initiatives across the state of Texas. He has deep family roots in East Texas. The signature element of a Collins project is to maintain authenticity by renovating a structure as historically accurate to its origins as possible.

Collins hosted a private opening celebration for the Union Baptist Church on Saturday (Nov. 23).

“We believe our efforts will make Jefferson a leader in historic preservation and community involvement,” Collins said. (more)

Requiem for a ClassicPublished scholarship on black history in Texas is growing and we?d like to share with you some suggested readings, both current and past, from some of the preeminent history scholars in Texas and beyond. We invite you to take a look at our bookshelf page ? including a featured selection ? and check back as the list grows. A different selection will be featured each week. We welcome suggestions and reviews. This week, we offer, “Requiem for a Classic, Thanksgiving Turkey Day Classic,” by Thurman W. Robins Ed.D.

In the era when segregation and Jim Crow laws ruled the land, The Turkey Day Classic was created. The event prospered from 1927 to 1966. Newspaper accounts describe the classic between arch rivals Jack Yates and Phillis Wheatley high schools in Houston as the largest annually attended schoolboy game in America. Fans came dressed to kill to witness the game and the glorious halftime activities. Marching bands, drill squads, and other performing groups gave eloquent entertaining performances during halftime. However, the crowning of the schools queens were the highlights of halftime. Game summaries, team lineups, and editorial comments by the author are presented.


This Week in Texas Black History

Scott JoplinCalled the ?King of Ragtime,? Scott Joplin was born this day in 1868 near Linden, Texas. (Some documents, however, refer to his birth as between June 1867 and mid-January 1868.) Joplin grew up in Texarkana, Texas and taught himself to play piano in the home where his mother worked as a domestic. Sheet music for his best-known piece, ?Maple Leaf Rag,? sold over a million copies and his works also include a ballet and two operas. Joplin?s music was featured in the 1973 motion picture, ?The Sting,? which won an Academy Award for its film score. In 1976, Joplin was posthumously awarded a Pulitzer Prize for ?Treemonisha,? the first grand opera by an African American.

Teddy WilsonJazz pianist Teddy Wilson was born this day in Austin in 1912. Known as ?the definitive swing pianist,? Wilson began his career in the late 1920s in various Midwest bands, and from 1935 to 1939, played on sessions that resulted in legendary vocalist Billie Holiday?s greatest work. He joined Benny Goodman in 1936, breaking the color barrier by performing on an equal footing with Goodman in trios, quartets and sextets.

Nov. 24

Percy Sutton

Attorney, businessman and civil rights activist Percy Sutton was born on this date in 1920 in San Antonio. The son of a former slave, Sutton served in World War II with the Tuskegee Airmen, then settled in New York. In 1971, he co-founded the Inner City Broadcasting Corporation, which purchased WLIB-AM, making it the first black-owned station in New York City. He earned a law degree in 1950 and served in the New York State Assembly before taking over as Manhattan borough president in 1966, becoming the state?s highest-ranking black elected official. Sutton also headed a group that owned the Amsterdam News, the second-largest black weekly newspaper in the country.

Mickey Leland

On this day in 1944, U.S. Congressman Mickey Leland was born in Lubbock. He graduated from Houston?s Phillis Wheatley High School in 1963 and earned a pharmacy degree from Texas Southern University in 1970. Leland served six terms in Congress (18th District) and five years as a Texas state legislator (88th District). He was a civil rights activist and a staunch advocate in the fight against hunger. He was the lead supporter for passage of the Africa Famine Relief and Recovery Act of 1985, legislation that provided $800 million in food and humanitarian relief supplies. Leland died in a plane crash on August 7, 1989 while on a relief mission to an isolated refugee camp, Fugnido, in Ethiopia, which sheltered thousands of unaccompanied children fleeing the civil conflict in neighboring Sudan.

Worried?

November 26th, 2019

Enslaved Couples Faced Wrenching Separations, or Even Choosing Family Over Freedom

Loved ones could be sold away at any time. Here’s how married couples coped.

(History.com) For enslaved African-Americans, the ideal of marriage as an enduring lifelong bond was rarely an option. When couples stood before clergy or other officiants, they couldn?t share the traditional, age-old promises of permanent fidelity because their vows had a built-in asterisk: ?Do you take this woman or this man to be your spouse?until death or distance do you part??

Understanding those altered words, couples married with trepidation, fully aware of the turmoil that might result from trying to maintain and nurture their ties while enslaved. Still, they continually took leaps of faith, driven by burning passions to form families of their choosing?and create fundamental human bonds that could help soften the harsh conditions of human bondage.

These leaps were necessary because, for nearly 250 years, the vast majority of African-Americans were considered chattel property. Within this system, white slaveholders made all the decisions: They determined whether and when enslaved people could wed. They split them apart when finances dictated. They sometimes chose who would marry who. Or brazenly violated enslaved couples? marriages by forcing the women to serve as their own concubines. And those in political power set laws that made it exceedingly difficult for freed black people to reside for long near their still-enslaved families without being sucked back into the harrowing state of bondage themselves.

Since marriage was both a civil right and a religious rite afforded only to those with legal standing, enslaved people, who had no recognizable standing in society, could not make contracts of any kind. Their marriages were neither legally binding, nor sanctified by the Christian church, which routinely allowed one of its holiest rites to be tarnished by power, money and whim. Property owners were its leading constituents, and their rights prevailed over human rights. So enslaved people were forced to settle for conditional unions that could be torn asunder at any time.

Decades After Racial Strife, Returning to A&M

Forty-five years ago, Bill Mahomes endured suspicion and scorn as the first black student to graduate from Texas A&M University’s Corps of Cadets. Now, he helps run the school.

Bill Mahomes

Bill Mahomes in his office at Mahomes & Bolden PC in Dallas. Mahomes was the first black cadet to make it through the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets and is now a member of the Texas A&M System Board of Regents. (Mark Graham)

(Texas Tribune) Two decades after becoming the first black student at Texas A&M to spend four years in the school’s Corps of Cadets, Bill Mahomes received a call from an old classmate. They hadn?t spoken since graduation, but the man wanted to apologize.

He had screamed at Mahomes once ? not uncommon in A&M?s massive, ROTC-like military program. But this instance had crossed the line. Words were too harsh. Racial slurs may have been used. The incident had weighed on the classmate ever since.

Mahomes listened to the apology but didn?t know what to say. At first, he couldn?t even remember the incident. That kind of thing happened so often at A&M in the 1960s that he usually endured it and moved on.

The apology, however, left a more lasting impression. Looking back, the 68-year-old lawyer says, it was one of many healing moments that helped him reconnect with his university ? a school he kept his distance from after graduating during the painful civil rights era. (more)


Azellia White, trailblazer for African-American women in aviation, dies at 106

Native of Gonzalez, Texas

Azellia White(The Washington Post) Azellia White, who said she found freedom in the skies, becoming one of the first African American women to earn a pilot?s license in the United States, died Sept. 14 at a nursing home in Sugar Land, Tex. She was 106.

Her death was reported Nov. 18 in the London Daily Telegraph but had previously gone largely unnoted in the U.S. and international news media. A great-niece, Emeldia Bailey, confirmed her death and said she did not know the cause.

Mrs. White, the daughter of a sharecropper and a midwife, was drawn to aviation by her husband, Hulon ?Pappy? White, a mechanic who served during World War II in Tuskegee, Ala., as a mechanic for the storied unit of black military pilots known as the Tuskegee Airmen. (more)

This Week in Texas Black History

Nov. 17

Elvin HayesBasketball player Elvin Hayes, one of the first black athletes at the University of Houston, was born on this day in 1945 in Rayville, La. Hayes was a three-time All-America and was selected as the College Player of the Year in 1968. As a pro, he was the first pick in the 1968 NBA draft by the San Diego (later Houston) Rockets, and would also star for the Baltimore/Washington Bullets. Hayes retired in 1984 as the second-leading scorer in league history with 27,313 points, was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1990, and was named one of the NBA?s 50 greatest players in 1996.

Nov. 23

Baylor University logoOn this day in 1963, Baylor University?s athletic council announced it would integrate all of the school?s athletic teams, effective with the opening of the spring semester, Jan. 30, 1964. At the time, the school had no black students, but had announced its intention to open enrollment. John Bridgers, head football coach and athletic director said, ?We don?t know of any Negro athletes right now that we?re interested in, but there may be some we will want to look at and investigate?there are some tremendous Negro athletes all over the country.? Bridgers said he personally agrees with the action of the trustees and the athletic council. ?I feel it?s something that should be, from a standpoint of being right.? Ironically, Baylor was the first program in the Southwest Conference to have a black player take the field when running back John Westbrook, a walk-on, carried the ball twice in the Bears victory over Syracuse University on Sept. 10, 1966. A week later, Southern Methodist University?s Jerry Levias became the SWC?s first black scholarship player.

1960s Revisited

October 1st, 2019

Over the last few years our society has spent a great amount of energy reliving and analyzing the 1960s. Every event ? from the deaths of the Kennedy brothers, MLK and Malcolm X, landing on the moon, war protests, and the hippie revolution ? has been scrutinized through the microscope of history. The interesting thing about history?s microscope, though, is that it often blots out the nasty and the ugly. The concept of revisionism centers?(more)

How broad has their study been on what everyone does/is/feels, if they've done any real study at all? Why are they saying something is normal: is it because they really think it is, or just because they badly want it, or themselves, to be? Are they saying something is normal in order to educate and inform people to earnestly help better their lives, or to try and control people for their own benefit? What about the fact that so often, people who are loudest about what is or should be "normal" are people for whom that given standard isn't even what's normal for them?
