          ¿A quién arma la 'máquina de guerra' de Corea del Norte?      Cache   Translate Page      


A pesar de las sanciones y los escándalos nucleares consecutivos, Pyongyang es uno de los productores y suministradores de armas más grandes del mundo. El columnista Andréi Stanavov en su artículo para Sputnik desvela el oscuro secreto del 'reino juche'.

Como resultado de las sanciones impuestas contra Pyongyang, Corea del Norte no ha tenido otra opción, sino ir al mercado negro para poder vender sus armas.

Las medidas económicas impuestas contra Pyongyang no han influido sobre la determinación del país juche de seguir con su presencia en este mercado.

Las armas norcoreanas se destacan por su bajo precio, simplicidad y fiabilidad. Estas características son la mejor publicidad para el armamento de producción norcoreana.

Economía clandestina

Los armamentos, junto al carbón y los mariscos, son una de las fuentes principales de dinero para el presupuesto nacional de Corea del Norte. Si bien Pyongyang no tiene permiso para exportar sus armas a otros países, existen vías ilegales de hacerlo y el país asiático se aprovecha de ellas.

El columnista señala que las armas de producción norcoreana cuentan con una demanda enorme en los países del llamado 'tercer mundo', en particular, en los que también se encuentran sancionados y no tienen posibilidad de comprar armas de otros suministradores.

Stanavov sostiene que Estados Unidos de hecho ayuda a Pyongyang a ampliar la lista de sus clientes, cuando convierte a otro país en 'paria'. Según el autor de la nota, lo mismo le pasa a Pyongyang: el país se encuentra en una situación crítica tras privarlo de sus fuentes legales de ingresos.


Por ejemplo, Corea del Norte ya no puede vender su carbón a China, por lo tanto el Gobierno de 'Kim III' ha entrado en una batalla para conquistar el mercado negro, incluso el de las armas.

Aunque los expertos consideran que en un año Corea del Norte exporta armas por un valor de más de 100 millones de dólares, nadie conoce la magnitud real de estas ventas. Todos los acuerdos se firman en secreto entre Corea del Norte y una parte interesada.

Clones de los clones

"Corea del Norte vende casi todo lo que fabrica: de fusiles automáticos a lanzacohetes múltiples. La mayor parte de los armas largas son clones de los fusiles Kalashnikov soviéticos, o son clones de los clones chinos, que por su parte fueron copiados de las armas de la URSS", apuntó el vicedirector del Centro de Análisis de Estrategias y Tecnologías de Rusia, Konstantín Makienko, citado por Stanavov.

"Pyongyang produce una amplia gama de armas de infantería, entre ellos lanzacohetes múltiples, artillería pesada, sistemas de misiles antitanque, fusiles de asalto, lanzagranadas y municiones para todas las armas que acabo de mencionar", agregó.

Stanavov recuerda que Siria presuntamente compró municiones norcoreanas de calibre 130mm para su artillería.

Asimismo, el columnista enfatiza que los especialistas norcoreanos lograron hacer una copia del sistema de misil balístico táctico R-17 Elbrús —Scud-B, según la designación de la OTAN— ya en los años 1980. Pyongyang compró los prototipos de Egipto, elaboró uno propio y lo puso en venta. Según Stanavov, se dieron casos en los que el país juche vendió líneas enteras de ensamble para este tipo de misiles.

Las copias norcoreanos de los Scud fueron comprados por países como Irán, Siria y Yemen. El alcance de las primeras versiones no superaba los 300 kilómetros, pero luego los expertos en armas del país juche modernizaron sus copias para aumentar su alcance hasta 600 kilómetros.

Como consecuencia de las numerosas modernizaciones de su copia del misil soviético Scud, los norcoreanos crearon su propio misil, Rodong, capaz de transportar una ojiva a una distancia de hasta 1.300 kilómetros. Estas armas pueden ser equipadas con una ojiva convencional, nuclear o química.

El autor del artículo indicó que el 90% de los misiles de producción norcoreana lanzados por el Ejército persa durante la guerra contra Irak dio en el blanco. El porcentaje de fallos técnicos era mínimo, lo que comprueba que estas armas son de alta calidad.

Luego, Irán creó su propia copia del Rodong y la llamó Shahab-3, apunta el periodista. Gracias a la ayuda norcoreana, Teherán ahora es capaz de producir este tipo de misiles, por lo que dejó de adquirir los cohetes de Corea del Norte. Sin embargo, los países siguen cooperando a nivel tecnológico.

Según indica Stanavov, los mayores productores de los sistemas de misiles no pueden vender, de acuerdo con los tratados internacionales, armas cuyo alcance supere los 300 kilómetros. Pyongyang, por su parte, está libre de estas responsabilidades de ahí que se ha hecho con el monopolio en este campo.

El columnista afirma que los sistemas de misiles y de artillería, que supuestamente fueron producidos por Corea del Norte, han sido observados en los buques de guerra de Birmania. El autor señala que no hay ninguna información sobre los suministros de estas armas, pero su aspecto es igual a los que están instalados sobre lanchas norcoreanas.

Stanavov explica que el territorio norcoreano goza de una cantidad grande de yacimientos de carbón y de otros minerales, que son necesarios para producir aparatos electrónicos.

Esta también es la razón por la que Pyongyang puede seguir desarrollando su programa nuclear: el país juche cuenta con sus propios yacimientos de uranio, en cantidades que podrían despertar la envidia de muchos países.

La geografía de las ventas

La lista de los clientes de la 'máquina de guerra' norcoreana es larga e incluye a países de diferentes partes del mundo. Estos países a menudo prefieren realizar la compra sin mediadores y en privado.

Los compradores tradicionales de las armas norcoreanas son Irán, Siria, Cuba, Libia, Yemen, Egipto y Uganda. Asimismo, estas armas han sido vendidas a grupos armados como Hamás y Hizbulá, indica Stanavov.

El autor de la nota señala que las armas son transportadas mayormente por vía marítima. El uso de aviación no es adecuado para este tipo de suministros porque a menudo requiere recargar combustible en el territorio de un tercer país. Para Pyongyang no es una opción porque las autoridades de un país extranjero pueden detener la aeronave

          Bye Bye Love. Wonkagenda For Tues., March 12, 2019      Cache   Translate Page      


Morning Wonketariat! Here's some of the things we may be talking about today.


There's so much fuckery in Trump's $4.75 trillion budget, we don't have nearly enough time to go through everything. Politico has a list of some of the winners and losers, the former being his golf buddies and Betsy DeVos, and the latter being poor people, the sick, and the elderly (thanks to massive cuts in Medicare and Medicaid previously sold as TrumpCare). WaPo notes that the administration is living in a complete fantasy believing that the economy is doing fine, counter to the analysis from every math geek who's ever used an abacus. Yesterday, OMB Director Russ Vought told reporters that it wasn't actually the Trump tax cuts (for the super rich) that ballooned the national debt, it was Obama. Earlier in the day, Vought appeared on CNBC to bitch and moan about the Mexican-Muslim taco truck invasion of the southern border, arguing that WALL was more important than sick, old, and/or poor people, and stated, "We're tired of being right." US TOO, BUDDY. Meanwhile, the GOP revolt over Trump's border wall has flipped Congress on its head as members consider measures ranging from overriding Trump's national emergency declaration, to limiting the presidential power to declare national emergencies.

In a bigass profile in WaPo, Nancy Pelosi finally said what's been hinted at for two years -- that she doesn't want to impeach Trump "unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan ... because it divides the country. And he's just not worth it." Some Democrats pushed back strongly on Pelosi's remarks, with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez noting Trump met "the Lindsey Graham standard" for impeachment "multiple times." In speaking with Politico, House Oversight Chair Elijah Cummings called impeachment a "political process," and added, "You've got to have bipartisanship. Right now you've got 40 something percent of the country pleased, I guess, with what the president's doing. I think Pelosi realizes this."

Dick Cheney ripped Mike Pence a new asshole at a private meeting in Georgia over the weekend at a forum for a conservative think tank, according to a leaked transcript of the event. The war hawk criticized the Trump administration's foreign policy as being more limpwristed than Obama, complaining that Trump's idea to demand protection money from allies "sounded like a new York state real estate deal." Pence responded by reportedly asking, "Who wrote these softball questions?"

In a rare showing of bipartisan rebuke of the Trump administration, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have invited the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg to Washington to address a joint session of Congress later this spring. The invite comes as Trump moves to charge US allies protection money to the tune of "cost plus 50."

Massachusetts Democratic Senator and 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren suddenly found her ads calling for Facebook to be broken up taken down by Facebook. Facebook issued a statement saying the ads violated their policy of using its logos in advertising. Though the ads were later restored, they kind of proved Warren's point that Facebook is too goddamn big. Politico is stirring the pot this morning with a story about Warren taking money from Silicon Valley employees and selling her books on Amazon ... over the last decade.

Senators Ed Markey and Josh Hawley say they plan introduce a bill to amend the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). The bill would reportedly extend protections of children up to 15-years-old, and bar platforms from targeting ads at kids under 13. Roll Call notes it's unlikely to become a law even though multiple states and the EU have already moved forward with strict data privacy regulations aimed at keeping companies from fiddling with kids' heads. Here's an example of COPPA laws in action.

Democrats have chosen Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for their 2020 nominating convention. In a tweet, the party stated Milwaukee was "more than equipped."

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand says her office was "thorough and professional" when it "thoroughly and appropriately" investigated sexual harassment allegations from a female staffer against Gillibrand's longtime driver and military adviser. In a brief scrum with reporters, Gillibrand said she has full confidence about the "professional and thorough" investigation that was now "thorough and complete." He must be a good man, and thorough.

Former Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke is headed to Iowa to help state Senate candidate Eric Giddens in a special election while simultaneously reaching out to former Obama people and courting activists. Beto hasn't announced #HesRunning (yet), but political wizards think it's just a matter of time.

Former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams clarified remarks she made at SXSW stating she hadn't decided if #ShesRunning in 2020, and said the possibility was "on the table." Abrams's initial remarks were that she kept a spreadsheet with gigs she wanted, and 2028 would have been the earliest she would run for president.

According to court records, a Roy Moore supporter pleaded the Fifth 65 TIMES when asked if he had tried to bribe the lawyer representing one of Moore's accusers to drop the client and issue a damning statement to Breitbart. What initially started as a defamation suit has grown to engulf Steve Bannon's rightwing shit rag. SCANDAL!

Those rascally radicals in antifa have dug up racist and anti-Semitic chat logs from from Bennet Bressman, the statewide field director for Nebraska's uber rich Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts. The 22-year-old Bressman says the logs, which date back to last year, were from a long time ago and no longer reflect who he is as a person, though screenshots of Bressman's social media accounts show him teaching people about "chad nationalism," joking about running down Black Lives Matter activists with his white car, dropping n-bombs and racial stereotypes, as well as old fashioned gay-hatin'. [Logs]

Current Florida man and former Maine Republican Gov. Paul LePage started cold calling radio shows (again) to say those damn dirty Democrats get all their money from the JEEWWZZ, and that Rep. Ilhan Omar "completely vindicated" his long history of hate mongering. [Audio]

As British Prime Minister Theresa May faces the rapidly approaching zero for a "no-deal" Brexit scenario, the EU and UK agreed to a changes over the Irish backstop and permanent customs union. HOWEVER, the EU signaled the changes are by no means an end to negotiations just as a number of British MPs sounded off about their reluctance to support May's deal. If you're confused, don't worry, so is everyone else.

A new UN report says North Korea is cleverly avoiding oil, coal, and weapons sanctions, and hacking foreign banks to make some quick cash -- and that's on top of all the shady weapons testing programs they've quietly started back up. The report even includes photos of North Korean ships disguised as trading vessels illegally transferring energy and materials on the high seas, as well as the regime's smuggling of weapons to Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen, possible gold-mining in the Republic of Congo, and supplying Uganda with military training and weapons.

Lawyers for Roger Stone say they "clumsily" tried to tell the court about Roger Stone's book, and that they'd like to "move ahead without further ado," HOWEVER emails from Stone to his publisher show Stone bitching about a gag order interfering with his book sales, arguing for more money, and demanding fewer copies of the book be printed.

The Senate Intel Committee met with Simona Mangiante, the wife of George Papadopoulos, to ask about her old boss, ALLEGED Russian spy Joseph Mifsud. Mangiante told WaPo that she was "happy to provide information," emphatically adding, "Definitely not because I am a Russian spy." [No, she said that!]

Tucker Carlson refused to apologize for sexist and misogynist comments made to a shock jock's radio show unearthed by Media Matters. Tucker likened the campaign to have him and Jeanine Pirro "You're Fired" to a "mob" in a defiant monologue, and stated he planned to "fight it" while crying on the shoulder of Sean Hannity. Media Matters later released MORE damning audio of Tucker where he claims "white men" were responsible for "creating civilization," waxes philosophical about THE BLACKNESS of the Obamas, and whines that Iraqi people aren't "human beings" because they "don't use toilet paper or forks," and that they're actually, "semiliterate primitive monkeys," Shortly after Tucker's monologue, Fox News host Brit Hume tweeted, "Doing well is the best revenge," and linked to Tucker's TV ratings. Meanwhile, Variety's Brian Steinberg noted Tucker didn't have many ads during his show, and that's not a good sign (for him).

Two of the most prominent NRA board members tell the New York Times that NRATV's hard-right turn into fear mongering of apocalyptic race riots, ALLEGED grift, and shady Russian fuckery has forced them to reconsider what the hell they're all doing. Apparently Dana Loesch putting Thomas the Tank in a KKK hood was a little too much, even for gun fetishists chumming red meat.

After the Westboro Baptist Church decided to take a field trip to the Virginia state capitol and protest the state's first and only openly transgender lawmaker, Del. Danica Roem, the lead singer of heavy metal band Lamb of God organized a counter-protest with free kazoos. Several hundred people turned out in support of Roem, who herself fronts a local heavy metal band, and chased out the hate group out within 30 minutes.

          Senator Sanders Seeks Backing for Measure Forcing US Pullout From Yemen Conflict      Cache   Translate Page      
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - Congress needs to end US backing for the Saudi-led intervention in Yemen’s conflict during a historic vote on Wednesday because American participation has never received congressional approval, Senator Bernie Sanders said in a press release.
          Nancy Pelosi: "I'm Not for Impeachment."      Cache   Translate Page      
Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave a wide-ranging interview to Joe Heim at the Washington Post yesterday, and there was a lot of good stuff there, but this exchange is obviously very concerning for a whole lot of people, myself included:
There have been increasing calls, including from some of your members, for impeachment of the president.

I'm not for impeachment. This is news. I'm going to give you some news right now because I haven't said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I've been thinking about this: Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he's just not worth it.
So, let me start by saying I will give Pelosi a very little bit of wiggle room here, on the possibility that this is a strategic move.

If, for example, House Democrats have already uncovered something actionable in their investigations that they think is a more solid avenue to disempower Donald Trump than impeachment, or if they have something on Trump and need to save impeachment for Mike Pence, then it makes sense to take impeachment off the table for now — and an argument could be made that doing it publicly is part of that strategy.

But if something along those lines doesn't materialize quickly, then this is some bullshit.

And, to be frank, I frustratingly haven't seen any evidence that House Democrats, since reclaiming the majority, have any interest in investigating Pence. Which I find deeply troubling.

So there's a strong chance this is just a straightforward statement in which the Speaker rejects impeachment as a tool, because it's "divisive."

And, yes, it is. Except the country is already divided — into people who support a vile authoritarian bigot whose agenda is undiluted malice and who is subverting our democracy to turn the country into a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Kremlin, and people who are resisting this relentless nightmare with everything we've got.

Trust that I understand there is little hope of success without bipartisan support. I understand the risk of pursuing impeachment and losing, when you only get one bite at that apple. I understand that a big swing and a miss could leave Trump even more powerful and convinced of his own unrestrainable domination than he is now.

And if I still believed we had free and fair elections the outcomes of which Trump would respect, or unbiased courts through which we could seek legal remedies, then I would be advocating against impeachment for all of those reasons.

But I don't see whence will come relief anymore. The longer we wait, the longer Trump and the Republican Party has to consolidate their power. And they are exploiting every second for maximum gains.

Meanwhile, people are dying — in the United States, along the southern border, in Syria, in Somalia, in Yemen, and elsewhere around the world — because of the Trump Regime. Pelosi may be right that Trump really isn't worth the potential costs of using every tool in the drawer, but they are.

I have trusted Speaker Pelosi to know what she's doing, and she's come through time and again. I sure hope she knows what she's doing this time, because we can't afford for her to be wrong.

  Key Issues • Donors pledge US$2.62 billion for humanitarian response in 2019. • 2019 YHRP seeks $4.2 billion to deliver assistance to 21.4 million people in dire need. • Humanitarian partners are scaling up responses to escalated needs in Hajjah Governorate. • WFP accesses Red Sea Mills in Al Hudaydah City for the first time in six months. • Increased efforts to contain the spread of communicable diseases. Donors pledge US$2.6 billion for 2019 humanitarian response International donors at a high-level event convened by the United Nations and co-hosted by the Governments of Switzerland and Sweden in Geneva on 26 February, pledged US$2.62 billion for urgent and life-saving humanitarian aid to millions of people in Yemen in 2019. “[The] pledging conference can be considered a success,” UN Secretary-General António Guterres said. “The donors have pledged 30 per cent more than last year to help address the dramatic humanitarian situation in Yemen: from US$2 billion in the pledging conference of 2018 to $2.6 billion in the pledging conference 2019”. Top donors were the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia ($750 million), UAE ($750 million) UK ($261.44 million), Kuwait ($250 million) European Union (184.42 million) and Germany ($114.16 million). The pledges, when committed, will help pay for the implementation of the 2019 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (YHRP). Partners operating in Yemen welcomed the support by donors at the conference, with international NGOs calling for unconditional access for Yemenis to humanitarian assistance and commercial imports in all parts of Yemen; a countrywide ceasefire, protection of humanitarian workers and an inclusive peace agreement. Partners estimate that as many as 6.5 million people are currently living in 83 hard-to-reach districts where humanitarian partners face medium or high access constraints. Out of the 83 hard-to-reach districts, 23 districts face high constraints and 60 districts face medium constraints. In 46 of these districts, access is mainly affected by conflict, including shifting frontlines especially in Al Bayda, Al Hudaydah, Sa’ada and Hajjah. “This year is going to be tough,” said Ms. Lise Grande, Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen. “This is why humanitarian partners are going to do everything possible to help civilians in Yemen to survive violence, access food, and receive the nutrition, health, WASH, shelter, education and protection support they are entitled to under international humanitarian and human rights law. We are grateful to all of the donors who generously support this operation.” UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs: To learn more about OCHA's activities, please visit https://www.unocha.org/.

Key Issues Recent IPC analysis indicates that over 20 million face severe food insecurity in Yemen. The upsurge in Yemen’s migrant arrivals exceeds 2018 arrivals to Europe via the Mediterranean Seaw. Polio campaign reaches 4.6 million children, 84 per cent of target. The trend of suspected cholera cases remains stable. UN URGES ACTION TO AVERT HUMANITARIAN CATASTROPHE IN YEMEN On 7 December, the preliminary results of the Integrated Phase Classification (IPC) Food Security Analysis were released, indicating that without humanitarian food assistance over 20 million people in Yemen, representing two thirds of the population, would face severe food insecurity (IPC Phase 3+, that is people in crisis and above on the IPC five phase scale). Alarmingly, for the first time during the conflict in Yemen IPC Phase 5 (people in catastrophe) is observed, meaning that 63,500 people currently in this phase and are barely surviving. However, without large-scale food assistance, the number would be 238 000, three times higher. Only one other country in the world - South Sudan - has people suffering catastrophic food insecurity and even then, the number of people at Phase 5, at 47,000, is much smaller. Overall, 17 per cent of the Yemeni population (about 5 million people) are in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency) and 36 per cent (about 10.8 million people) are in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis). Ongoing hostilities remain the main driver of worsening food security, IDPs and those hosting them are the most vulnerable. The people most at risk of starvation are in Hajjah, Al Hudaydah, Sa’ada ad Taizz governorates. The economic crisis and resulting high food prices, disrupted livelihoods and high levels of unemployment also affects those not in conflict areas - the cost of the minimum/survival food basket is 150 per cent higher than before the conflict. As a result, large numbers of households in most districts across the country are forced to engage in negative coping strategies, including reducing the number of meals or size of food portions, consuming less preferred foods and prioritizing children’s consumption. In addition, households have also resorted to practices that will undermine their longer-term food security, such as selling animals and household items. In response to the situation, WFP is scaling up its food aid operation to target 12 million people per month with food and nutrition assistance next year, up 50 per cent from the 8 million targeted every month this year. The 12 million figure represents 10 million people severely food insecure and 2 million displaced people in acute need. Food aid alone will not be sufficient to end hunger. To do this, much more is needed. The five priorities to prevent more people sliding into IPC Phase 5 and possible famine are: Stop attacks on civilians and civilian infrastructure; Allow all imports of food, fuel and medicine; Provide more foreign exchange and pay civil servants; Support the scale up of the humanitarian response; and Support the UN Special Envoy’s efforts to end the conflict.

  KEY ISSUES: • The Yemen Humanitarian Needs Overview indicates 24 million Yemenis will need some form of humanitarian assistance in 2019. • Scale-up of the humanitarian operation in 2018 saved millions of lives. • 2019 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan released - humanitarian partners aim to assist over 21.4 million people this year. • Weekly trend of suspected cholera cases remains stable at the country level. THE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN YEMEN REMAINS THE WORST IN THE WORLD The recently released 2019 Yemen Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO) indicates that four years into the crisis, conflict and severe economic decline are driving the country to the brink of famine and exacerbating needs in all sectors. Eighty per cent of the population, 24 million people, will need some form of humanitarian or protection assistance in 2019, including 14.3 million people in acute need. Twothirds of all districts across the country are pre-famine and one-third face a convergence of multiple acute vulnerabilities. Overall, the number of people in acute need has increased by a staggering 27 per cent. Millions of Yemenis are now hungrier, sicker and more vulnerable than a year ago and greater numbers rely on humanitarian assistance, which is a lifeline for vast swathes of the population. A comparison with data from the 2018 HNO indicates that across all sectors, humanitarian needs have both increased and deepened. The caseload of people in acute need has significantly increased across all cluster areas with the highest increases in education (up by 32 per cent); health (up by 49 per cent); shelter and non-food items (NFIs – up by 73 per cent). The Nutrition Cluster represents the only exception where the caseload of people in acute need decreased by 2 per cent. The 2019 HNO analysis is informed by needs analysis conducted at both the cluster and inter-cluster level. In 2018, significant efforts were made to expand primary data collection and enhance evidence-based needs analysis to inform the Yemen response. Consequently, in addition to cluster-specific assessments such as Famine Risk Monitoring (FRM), a WASH household assessment, Health Resources Availability Monitoring System (HeRAMS) and SMART surveys, and a nationwide Multi-Cluster Location Assessment (MCLA) were conducted to better understand the scale and scope of humanitarian needs. As more granular information is required to better understand the specific needs of vulnerable groups, more frequent and enhanced needs assessments are planned for 2019.

  Key Issues - WFP is scaling up to reach 12 million people with life-saving food rations and commodity vouchers in January; 10 million severely food insecure people will receive in-kind food rations and 2 million will receive commodity vouchers. - Humanitarian partners continue to provide rapid response assistance to people displaced by conflict in Al Hudaydah Governorate, reaching 105,846 displaced families with rapid response assistance as of 16 January. - On 25 January, a fire at the Red Sea Mills in Al Hudaydah City damaged wheat stored in two silos. On 26 January, a collective centre for IDPs was shelled in Haradh District, Hajjah Governorate, killing 8 people and wounding 30 others. - OCHA has launched a new online platform to help humanitarian partners submit deconfliction notifications to the Evacuation and Humanitarian Operations Committee in Riyadh. - Five deminers were killed in an accident on 20 January. In 2018, Emergency Mine Action released around 6.3 million square metres of land through survey and clearance activities. Monthly food assistance target raised to 12 million people The UN World Food Programme (WFP) is in the process of scaling up to reach 12 million people with food assistance each month across Yemen. The scale up plan includes 8.2 million people who will receive in-kind food assistance, 2.8 million who will receive commodity vouchers and eventually a further one million people to will benefit from receiving cash-based transfers. Food assistance has played a critical role in preventing Yemen slipping into famine. The current scale up is in response to increased needs caused by the ongoing conflict and exacerbated an economic decline that has resulted in food prices 66-162 percent higher than before the crisis. About 20.1 million people are food insecure, an astonishing two-thirds of the population and an increase of 13 per cent from 2018. Nearly 10 million people are suffering from extreme hunger and close to 240,000 people are experiencing catastrophic food consumption gaps. An estimated 7.4 million people require services to treat or prevent malnutrition, including 3.2 million people who require treatment for acute malnutrition – 2 million children under 5 and more than one million pregnant and breastfeeding women. Currently, the people of Yemen are more vulnerable and hungrier than at any time since the escalation of the conflict in March 2015. Overall, 230 out Yemen’s 333 districts are at risk of famine. An estimated 18.5 million people live in these districts, including 7.1 million who need life-saving food and livelihoods assistance, 6.6 million who need WASH support and nearly 8 million who need healthcare. With two-thirds of the population food insecure, Yemen is the world’s largest food security crisis.

          Life is cheap in Palestine...      Cache   Translate Page      

by Jane Stillwater 



     In apartheid Israel right now, 1,500 Palestinian political prisoners are currently in the fourth week of a hunger strike, protesting against the brutal (American-blessed) neo-colonialist occupation of their homes in the West Bank.  Many of the hunger strikers are now close to death.  http://mondoweiss.net/2017/04/israelis-palestinian-prisoners/

     "What do we care if they die," say their Israeli occupiers.  "They are sub-human anyway.  They are more like animals than people.  That would just mean 1,500 fewer Palestinian dogs to get in our way."  Lebenstraum is important in Israel.  https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20170421-that-barbecue-outside-a-hunger-strike-prison-exposes-israeli-settlers-blind-hatred/

      And life is cheap in Yemen too.  The Saudis (with America's blessing) are planning to starve 28 million Yemenis to death.  "What do we care," say the Saudis.  "They have oil.  We want oil.  End of discussion."  http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/40147-the-us-provided-cover-for-the-saudi-starvation-strategy-in-yemen

     And, just like in Yemen and Palestine, life is cheap in America too.  "Let's send more troops off to Syria," Americans say, also giving their blessing to this illegal "war" for oil.  But Syria is just like Iraq and Afghanistan -- more American troops will be slaughtered there in yet another deceitful neo-colonialist bid for more oil pipelines and more oil.  "Hey, it's not like we don't pay those dogfaces and grunts for their service," say the boys in Washington DC.  How much for an American soldier's life?  Not much.  And the price keeps getting lower and lower.  http://www.militarytimes.com/story/military/benefits/2016/05/21/shrinking-military-paycheck-2017/84546824/

        Stop Wall Street and War Street from destroying our world.


     Plus here's a sneak preview of my latest book, a thrilling murder mystery entitled "Road Trip to Damascus," hopefully coming out by the end of 2017:  http://straitwellbooks.blogspot.com/2017/05/new-book-by-straitwell-press-coming-out.html

          Measles Is Spiking Around The Globe. How Worried Should We Be?      Cache   Translate Page      
The world has two kinds of measles problems. In low-income countries like Madagascar and in strife-ridden countries like Yemen, the disease takes a toll because vaccines are not available or accessible or affordable. In Madagascar alone, there have been nearly 80,000 cases and an estimated 900 deaths since September. And now there's a rise in measles in other countries, often wealthier ones, because of what's being called "vaccine hesitancy." Parents are opting out of the routine vaccination, which has been available since 1963 and is credited in helping to nearly eliminate the disease. That hesitancy has played a role in outbreaks around the world. Japan is facing the worst measles outbreak in a decade, with at least 221 cases . Since the start of 2019, more than 70 people have been infected in southwest Washington state, and there have been 17 cases in Vancouver, British Columbia. And in Costa Rica this year, an unvaccinated French boy brought the first case of measles to the country

          Arabs-Muslims or White Europeans .. who are really racist ?!      Cache   Translate Page      

In April 2014, The British newspaper ‘The Independent’ have reported that Saudi Arabia has criticised Norway's human rights record during the United Nations' Universal Periodic Review, in which 14 States are scheduled to have their human rights records examined. Russia meanwhile called for Norway to clamp down on expressions of religious intolerance and and criticised the country’s child welfare system.

The Norwegian foreign minister commented on this criticism saying “It is a paradox that countries which do not support fundamental human rights have influence on the council, but that is the United Nations,”

Months later, The Egyptian government took an advantage of the civilians killing incidents which some American police officers was involved in to direct a sharp criticism toward what they consider as a clear human rights violations on the American soils. Meanwhile, the Egyptian police wrote on their Facebook official page giving a “tips” to the american police officers about how to handle the peaceful demonstrations without causing human lives loses, the thing which made some activists making fun of the Egyptian government’s contradictory behavior, as it have a bad reputation concerning human rights and that the police and army have killed hundreds of protesters and detainees as a result of an excessive use of violence and physical torture in the past few years !!


I always memorize this incidents and other similar situations when some Arabs and Muslims start accusing the west of practicing racism and discrimination against immigrants, because many of those who take the lead in this criticism do not care at all about discrimination, racism and all kinds of human rights violations, and some of them practice such violations and praising it without shaking single eyelid. but they forget about that and direct those accusations toward the west with what they are themselves doing as they are trying to throw dust in eyes..
The western world are always chased by its colonial history which was marred by an explicit racism practices and violations of human dignity in the countries which were occupied during the past centuries. and despite the fact that all of those crimes and violations became part of a history irrelevant to our current reality, and despite the fact that such practices were condemned, regretted and apologized for by the past colonizing countries, however, some young Europeans who had no connection at all with such violations away from that they read and heard about it inherited a guilt feeling from their ancestors; a feeling which being fed by the increase of the immigration from the post colonized countries to Europe, where some Europeans feel guilt combined with a moral responsibility for any actual or possible sufferings might those immigrants go through, and they got a painful feeling that those inherited guilt is impossible to be erased or forgotten. Their daily life and their dealings with others is a personification of this inherited guilt. I met with many of them whose sensitivity toward racism and discrimination touch even some things might not be noticeable by those who is most likely targeted with discrimination and racism!!

Last December, I went with a friend of mine who is french living in Berlin to watch “The magic flute” opera in Berlin opera house. That was my first time i watch this show in theater after i watched it many times on screens. The show started and ten minutes passed before my friend started expressing intense anger and resentment over the appearance of an actor on the stage with a face painted in black as he played one of the opera’s roles. My friend told me that he is not able to continue the show and that he will wait for me outside.

On our way back my friend start explaining to me why he was angry. he said that he can’t accept when a white actors painting their faces in black to characterize black people and he consider it racist and humiliating. He also claimed that the opera houses don’t accept black people to act on the stage. I asked him if he would feel better if this role was played by a real black man? He silenced a bit and he was apparently thinking before he answered refusing playing such role at all and saying that the text characterizing the black people with a stereotypical brutal and bloody roles and that's why he is opposing playing this role basically which means in his opinion that the opera houses should stop showing such classic works to avoid promoting racism or they can modify the script and cleaning it from all suspected racism that included.

This friend was not the only one who adopt such position, but some Europeans i know do not care much about some brutal violations against human rights practiced in the middle east and Africa and have something to do with traditions or religion as they care about an opera show, movie or a piece of literature contained a suspected racism, and sometimes they blame their own people accusing them with that they helped on the occurrence of such violations because that the colonization prevented those who is committing such violations from getting rid of such traditions and thoughts that justify it.

I don’t underestimate here any racist or discriminatory attitude no matter how small, and i think that all racism suspicions should be addressed and opposed before it grows up and become an acceptable reality and prevalent habits as its in the middle east. and i also believe that we shouldn’t tolerate or underestimate any kind of violation against human rights no matter how small it is and wherever it happened and i think that all of those things should be confronted strongly and firmly to guarantee that it will not be repeated in the future. and i also urge everybody who have been through a situation where his rights were violated and/or he have been discriminated against to stand strongly against it and not keep silent, and also those who witness such situations to take a strong actions against it who knows they might became a victims of similar situations one day.
Here comes an Important question about whether those who practice racism, discrimination and violations against human rights without shaking an eyelid are also entitled to accuse others of what they do ?! and if those accusations was based on a real grounds should we take it in consideration and react toward it seriously ?! should we react or give attention toward an allegation made by a terrorist who is for example supporting IS or Al-Qaeda and/or fought under their flags, brutally tortured and beheaded people, that he has been subjected to a violation of his human rights in jail, like if he was not allowed to leave his cell or to meet with his family or talking to them in phone or if he claimed that the police practiced racism and discrimination against him?!

As a result of a long bloody colonial history, the term “white man” has been associated with racism and brutality, even after those practices turned into just a words in books and exhibits in museums, the great grandparent’s shame is still chasing their descendants who are mostly abandoned this colonial patriarchal racist legacy and distanced themselves from it.
Ironically, Those who are supposed to be a historical victims for the white man’s brutal activities and now they are accusing Europeans all the time with racism, discrimination and violating the basic human rights in every occasion are not hesitating at the mean time of practicing racism and discrimination without fearing of being accused of it. It seems like racism and discrimination became an exclusive accusations goes only for the white people, while any other people no matter how cruel and barbaric their crimes and atrocities is, they have an eternal impunity protecting them from such accusations just because they used to be a spoiled historical victim for the white man who hold the eternal shame which he inherited to his grandsons and their offspring !!

After i moved to Norway as a political refugee, I started attending some lessons at Nygård skole organized by the Introduction center for refugees in Bergen as part of The Introduction program for refugees. One of those lessons was called in Norwegian “Tema måte” where there was a Norwegian person from an Iraqi origins leading it, talking in Norwegian while several translators sitting in the room and telling us what he say in our languages. Different topics was opened for discussion in this meeting which was held every Tuesday, and in the first meeting he talked to us about racism saying its widely scattered in Norway and the right wing had stopped organizing demonstration against immigration policies but he believe that they work now underground aiming to expel all the immigrants who came originally from Africa and middle east outside Norway and that we should stick to being part of this society and that he personally does not talk about his ethnic origin as he insists on being just Norwegian to stop anyone who dare to question his belonging to Norway. Then he opened a discussion with us about the manifestations of racism which probably encountered the people who are attending this meeting. Those manifestations according to what the students who was attending this class said was ranged between an uncomfortable eye contact with a person passing by in the street and reach its maximum with a Yemeni guy he said that he felt uncomfortable because he believe that Norwegians avoid sitting next to him in the bus marking that as its a clear racism and discriminatory attitude. The teacher reacted to what students told agreeing on that its a clear signs of the presence of blatant racism and discrimination against immigrants in the Norwegian society!!!
But this teacher who was showing us his concern towards what he sees as growing phenomena of racism and discrimination as he felt it in the Norwegian society and his fear of the rise of the far right wing, did not hesitate during another lesson to warn us of thinking of marrying Norwegian women , why ?!! because they are in his own words “ Very expensive” and “ cost a lot of money” . In another occasion he used the term “ buy a woman” as euphemism of “Marrying a woman”. In another lesson he was telling us a story about a Pakistani man who couldn’t “buy a woman” to marry her as he have no enough money so he found its relevant to buy a goat instead since the goat is much cheaper than a woman !! all that happened inside a program supposedly it made for integrating immigrants in The Norwegian society and that the Norwegian government spend a lot of money on it !! What a great integration results are expected from such program !!!
What which many Europeans who pay yet the price of their ancestor’s follies may not know that if we compared the suspicious racism - if any- has currently practiced toward immigrants with the racist practices committed by those with wheat skin color toward who have darker skin in the middle eastern countries they might start rethinking of their perceptions about themselves and the others.
In Saudi Arabia and all Arab Persian gulf states for example, people still using the word “Slave” (a’bd) in their daily conversations to refer to every individual with darker skin, the word “slave” replace the word “ dark skinned” or “ black” , so they say for example : My “Slave” friend John did this and that ….. , Or: I bought this phone the shop where the “Slave” John works ….., without feeling that they utter a racist expressions. such expression you could found it used naturally even by many people there who claim that they support human rights values and and oppose racism, but they couldn’t get rid of the racism hidden inside daily normal talks.
In Saudi Arabia also, the authorities launched a campaign in the fourth of November 2013 targeting the Ethiopian workers, arresting them claiming that they are violating the immigration laws. This campaign have been accompanied with waves of attacks and assaults launched by normal Saudi citizens armed with swords and choppers. They attacked the places where Ethiopian workers living with their families, beating them up and torturing them severely, recording that with their mobile cameras. Some workers died under torture, other killed after the police shot them in the streets. Some of the Saudi citizens who took part in this assaults proudly documented what they did with video recordings uploaded later on YouTube !!



And in Egypt where i was born and lived until the age of 27, the racism against black-skinned people is really clear and unmistakable for anyone’s eye or ear. Mothers for example get so angry if their sons or daughters thought about marrying a dark skin person, and most people agree on a certain beauty standards which according to it people with darker skin are considered ugly. The movies and dramas put Nubians, who is originally from southern Egypt and characterized by brown skin and local language in a stereotyped roles as servants and doormen.
and yet those who have darker skin color are not allowed to work as news readers or as presenters in the Egyptian state television.
In 2005, the Egyptian police killed 23 Sudanese refugees (according to some Sudanese activists the real number is 56) in the last days of the year while they was clearing a peaceful sit-in organized in front of the UNHCR headquarters in Cairo as those refugees was demanding being sent to a third country. The police broke up this peaceful sit-in after they got complaints from the residents of the surrounding area who claimed that they have been affected by the presence of those Sudanese people in their high classy neighbourhood saying that they “smell bad” and “having sex in the streets as animals”. After the police got involved and the sit in had cleared the sit-in which was resulted in killing of children, youth and old people of both sexes, those high classy residents expressed their satisfaction for what has happened.

In September 2007, i was spending my four years prison sentence on charges connected to my writings at Borg El-Arab Prison near Alexandria, when the prison received a large number of prisoners who came from different African countries, mostly from Sudan and Eritrea, have been arrested and sentenced to one year imprisonment by a military court on a charges of entering the country illegally through the southern borders with Sudan intending to travel to Israel.
The prison administration was treating them in an inappropriate way for human beings, they were housed in large numbers inside a number of cells which can barely fit half of them, and they wasn’t allowed to go out in the sun, the thing which made them start a mass hunger strike demanding a better treatment.
The prison administration was looking always down at them and when they decided to start their hunger strike the officers couldn’t understand how they could think about that and they thought there is something else stand behind their hunger strike decision. The officers was creating an a collective image about them; within this image’s frame they was not much more than a poor people escaped from their countries because there is famines over there with lack of food and drinkable water and that they are supposed to feel grateful to the prison administration as they are throwing them food like animals. In the end they found a solution for this dilemma when they accused me of inciting them on hunger strike just because i was talking to them in English which was apparently enough evidence to prove such a charge! and as result of that i have been punished and subjected to physical torture and spent 10 days in a solitary confinement cell deprived from having enough food and water more than half a loaf of bread with a small piece of cheese on it and a bottle of water for each day.

I often hear some stories told by immigrants in Europe tell about racism and discriminatory situations they have been through, most of those people came from Arab and Muslim countries, and of course i can’t show uncertainty toward such stories as its part of those people’s experiences which differ from person to another. But if i talked about my experience here as an immigrant in Europe with a Middle eastern physical features i can say its totally different. I can’t deny for sure that i have been exposed to some situations where i get through a suspicious discrimination when i was in poland, but it was too rare to be kept in mind for long. and after i came here to Norway i have never been through a suspicious discriminatory situation except one time when I was travelling to Slovenia last year and the man who work on KLM counter in Bergen Airport stopped me for long time claiming that Slovenia situated outside Schengen area and European union and I need a visa to travel there, which totally untrue! I showed him the list of Schengen countries on Wikipedia and that it includes Slovenia, but he insisted that Its not schengen as he tried to stop me for a while to make some phone calls perhaps to make sure that my traveling on board on this flight does not constitute a danger to the international peace and security, and i finally traveled!
With only one exception which i mentioned earlier, i didn’t feel any time that i am treated as outsider from the moment when i arrived to Bergen Airport coming from Krakow until the Moment i close this sentence with this full stop.
Finally i have to say that the racist and discriminatory practices are widely spread among Mideastern people much more than anyone can imagine, those practices targeting anyone who shows difference whether it was genetic or optional. But apparently that many people from there are unable to face themselves with their faults and crimes so they started searching like the bankrupt trader in their old notebooks for a someone pays the costs of their foolishness on behalf of them! that's why i urge my European friends to stop giving the accusations which Arabs and Muslims throw on them from their glassy houses any sort of attention that might give them a value they don’t worth to get.






          Venezuela-Siria, Tav- Eastmed, secessione dei ricchi-reddito di cittadinanza… o si muore. ----- AL CROCEVIA DEL DESTINO      Cache   Translate Page      


Potevano essere indotti ad accettare le più flagranti violazioni della realtà, poiché non hanno mai pienamente compreso l’enormità di quanto da loro si pretendeva e non erano abbastanza interessati ai fatti pubblici per accorgersi di cosa stava succedendo”. (George Orwell)

Di questioni che ci impongono a scegliere fra due o più strade in direzioni divergenti, perché sono in grado di determinare il nostro presente e futuro, dopo che è stato alterato e travisato il nostro passato, ce ne sono molte. Mi sono limitato a considerarne, a volo d’uccello, alcune, quelle che mi paiono al momento le più pressanti.

Siria e Venezuela: non è fatta!
Vedo buontemponi che si fregano le mani  convinti che in Siria, se non alla vittoria completa di quel popolo, dei suoi alleati e della sua dirigenza, con relativo riequilibrio geopolitico, si sia quanto meno alla sconfitta di assalitori e loro mercenari. Quando gli assalitori covano progetti elaborati nei decenni, in buona parte realizzati, dotati di forza militare (nucleare) e mediatica senza pari, decisivi per il loro ruolo e i loro obiettivi nel mondo, e dunque irrinunciabili, nessuna partita si può dire vinta, anche se nemmeno persa. E di mercenariato, tra masse alienate e alla canna del gas, ce n’è una fonte inesauribile.  Colonialismo e neoliberismo ne sono prodighi.


La stessa schiatta di fiduciosi nelle “magnifiche sorti e progressive”, ma ignari del pessimismo cosmico leopardiano, passato un mese dalla grottesca epifania di un teppistello da angiporto, però addestrato da Otpor a Belgrado e dalla National Endowment for Democracy (leggi CIA) a Washington, sottovalutando la psicopatologia dei mandanti e la determinazione dei banchieri sulle loro spalle, crede che basti la mancata defezione dei militari e il sostegno popolare maggioritario per affermare la vittoria di Nicola Maduro e della resistenza bolivariana. Magari restando un tantino interdetti per i tre micidiali colpi cibernetici che hanno annientato il funzionamento energetico del paese.

Il primo dei quali subito smascherato come atto bellico Usa dalla rivista “Forbes”, ma, prima ancora, in quanto annunciato, a 2’40” dal suo verificarsi, dal vaticinatore per il presidente venezuelano della stessa fine di Gheddafi, Marco Rubio, uno di cui andrebbe messa in discussione la natura umana. Con ogni evidenza, la guerra per cancellare dalla faccia della Terra la realtà bolivariana e l’intera emancipazione latinoamericana è appena iniziata. E se il moloch ripete con accanimento “tutte le opzioni sono sul tavolo”, sa quel che si dice e il blackout in atto si può definire l’inizio della guerra (economica) totale.

Chi vince prende tutto


Di crocevia della Storia, in entrambi i casi si tratta. Qui (ma anche in Afghanistan, Yemen, Libia, Iraq, Iran, Ucraina, Corea del Nord, Europa) alcuni miliardi di esseri umani sono coinvolti in un processo che li pone al bivio tra la fine dell’uomo voltairiano e socratico, e l’uomo del consumo-autoconsumo, abbarbicato alla slotmachine, o affogato nello smartphone, con zero altre opzioni o diritti. Ma anche tra esproprio totale e fine dell’uomo tout court. E, meglio ancora, tra mafia e padrini, definitivamente elevati al rango di governo globale, e quanto ci resta di sovranità dell’individuo, sublimata in sovranità di popolo e Stato.

O vince l’imperialismo USA (con l’appendice junckeriana UE e del neofeudalesimo tirannico dei detriti antistorici sauditi), strumento dei finanzdittatori del mondialismo, o resiste uno straccio di potere del diritto, come emerso dai bagni di sangue della storia con il Trattato di Westfalia e poi la Carta dell’ONU. O il governo della legge, o l’arbitrio di chi si arroga il diritto di imporre gli interessi del proprio 1% al resto del pianeta vivente. Tipo tagliandoti le mani se non ottemperi alle sanzioni all’Iran, ti incammini sulla Via della Seta, sposti denaro dall’alto al basso, non accetti di fare da bersaglio alle rappresaglie missilistiche russe a missili Usa, o non riconosci un turpe fantoccio emerso dal  laboratorio di pendagli da forca per rivoluzioni colorate e colpi di Stato, inaugurato a Belgrado contro la Jugoslavia e ricaricato a molla ovunque occorresse.


Camere a gas 2.0
Il TAV non serve a nessuno, se non alle mafie degli appalti e loro padrini politici, è il doppione di una ferrovia esistente, ma costa/rende 20 miliardi e la devastazione di Prealpi e Alpi, con relativa umanità, fauna e flora. L’Eastmed, il gasdotto ora all’esame del governo, sarà il più lungo del mondo, con 1.500 km subacquei che passano su faglie sismiche e vulcaniche, costa 12 miliardi di euro (in effetti il doppio) e fornisce appena il 5% della domanda europea (contro il terzo fornito a prezzo più basso dalla Russia), coinvolge Israele, Cipro, Grecia e Italia e sbocca, come il TAP, in Puglia. Taglia fuori Turchia, Libano, Siria e Palestina (Gaza), che si affacciano sugli stessi giacimenti del Mediterraneo Orientale. Cerca di ridurre il ruolo della Russia. Ma elimina dal gioco soprattutto l’Egitto e l’ENI, possessori del giacimento più vasto e fornitori più ricchi, meno costosi e a noi vicini. Dal che si capisce meglio, sia l’operazione Regeni, che la spaventosa guerra terroristica lanciata contro l’Egitto dai Fratelli Musulmani (Isis) a nome dei concorrenti.

TAV, TAP, Eastmed, Italia hub del gas europeo, trionfo del fossile e sacrificio della nostra residua integrità ecologica nel tempo in cui incontrovertibili studi e conseguite evidenze ci lasciano 10 anni perché l’inizio dell’estinzione di massa (già in atto per il 40 % dei vertebrati e per molto di più degli insetti), sia irreversibile. Grazie all’energia fossile siamo stati capaci di arrivare a fine agosto avendo già esaurito quanto il pianeta può fornire in un anno. Non c’è un vertice sul disastro climatico e sulle morìe che provoca, tranne quello di Kyoto, dove personalmente ho visto gli Usa, con l’ambientalista Al Gore, bloccare l’obbligatorietà dei vincoli, che imponga sanzioni agli Stati che non raggiungono i già tardivi e minimalisti obiettivi di riduzione dei gas serra e di consumo del suolo. Abbiamo un piede sospeso sul baratro, ma i padrini della criminalità organizzata politico-economica si costruiscono bunker e isole buenos retiros. E ricercatori Frankenstein ben pagati cercano tecnologie per spegnere il sole due ore al giorno, o raccogliere le alluvioni in innaffiatoi.


Sbloccare i cantieri o bloccare le frane?
Lo sfessante e ormai ridicolo rinvio della decisione sul TAV, per sentire francesi ed europei che sanno benissimo  come tutto il Corridoio 5 non esista più e fare quel buco serva solo a bastonare gli sconvenienti 5 Stelle, finirà in parlamento. Qui il da sempre finto bipolarismo si tradurrà in perfetto monopolarismo, come del resto su tutto ciò che conta (Atlantismo, Israele, Venezuela, Via della Seta, trivelle, affari, malaffari), e il TAV finirà,.anzi partirà, come il TAP e l’ILVA. Di Maio ha detto: “Noi le infrastrutture le vogliamo fare, anche quelle nuove” e tutti i gialloverdi si riempiono la bocca dello “Sbloccacantieri”, eco tonitruante del renziano “Sbloccaitalia”. Mica hanno detto “Qui tocca rifare l’Italia”. Dissestata, inquinata, franata, siccitata, alluvionata, cementificata, soffocata, con i ratti che impazzano e gli esseri umani che stanno a guardare. E a morire. C’è uno che lo dice. Si chiama Costa e fa il ministro dell’ambiente, come nessuno l’aveva fatto prima. Al crocevia non va lasciato solo.

Fare o disfare l’Italia
In compenso qualcuno ha detto, anzi ha bisbigliato, dato che ancora le plebi non hanno saputo niente, che l’Italia va… disfatta. E qui siamo a un altro crocevia  del destino, dalla scelta irrinunciabile. Speravamo in un nuovo bipolarismo: 5 Stelle da una parte, tutti gli altri, come loro natura e le rimpiante larghe intese bancarie comandano, dall’altra. Invece siamo al monopolarismo con frange. E siccome noi di signori abbiamo i signorotti di provincia, il nostro nuovo feudalesimo subimperiale si articolerà in piccole unità monovernacolari, monoculturali, monofiscali, insignificanti e inoffensive sulla scena europea e mondiale, con la classica vocazione dei microbaroni e microprincipotti italioti: Francia o Spagna purchè se magna. Nel caso si tratta di Francia e Germania. E gli altri? Un volgo disperso che nome non ha.
E questi che governano, lo stesso custode della Costituzione, di cui il valore più alto è l’unità d’Italia, si rendono meritevoli delle misure che la Patria prevedeva per alto tradimento Perciò lo fanno di soppiatto. Come ladri nella notte. E nessuno, né tantomeno Salvini, gli spara.




Al bivio tra Via del Padrino e Via dei picciotti

Resta un ultimo bivio tra la via al mondo dei gangster e quella al mondo degli umani, con il loro indispensabile corredo animale, vegetale, ambientale. Non s’era mai visto, dopo gli uomini saggi e buoni di Neanderthal, che il flusso della ricchezza dalla terra agli uomini e, tra questi, da quelli bassotti a quelli altotti, cambiasse verso, dall’alto verso il basso. Attimi, in migliaia di anni, si sono avuti dopo il 1917, qua e là nel mondo. Ma è durato poco. Poi quattro stenterelli, intestatisi le stelle, ci hanno riprovato. Un piccolo esperimento, capace però di fare da innesco, soprattutto alla consapevolezza che il trasferimento dal basso verso l’alto non era necessariamente nella natura delle cose. E per cinque milioni di italiani hanno invertito la corrente. E’ successo il finimondo. Anatemi, scomuniche, roghi (mediatici) Come quando Copernico (15°secolo D.C), informatosi da Aristarco di Samo (terzo secolo A.C), asserì che la Terra girava intorno al sole. E non viceversa, neanche se è sulla Terra che era venuto Gesù bambino.

E fu il reddito di cittadinanza. Quello per i fannulloni sul divano. Quello del suo più nevrastenico oppositore. Tale Roberto Ciccarelli che, a disco rotto, ha ripetuto 127 volte l’esorcismo: “sussidio di povertà impropriamente detto reddito di cittadinanza”. E’ uno che vanta tutti i crismi della credibilità: sull’11 settembre ha sepolto sotto sberle e sputazzi oltre 3000 scienziati e tecnici che non erano proprio d’accordo con il racconto di Bush. Scrive sul “quotidiano comunista” . Quindi i soldi per i poveri gli vanno proprio di traverso. All’incrocio, non ha esitato un attimo.


Possiamo esitare noi che siamo il 99% e abbiamo la scelta tra il padrino, che infila popoli tra i tondini delle fondamenta dei suoi edfici e quelli che mafiosi non sono.  Ci facciano un pensierino colui che si chiama con termine antipatizzante “capo politico” e la polvere di stelle che lo segue. Al crocevia, che strada sceglieranno, dato che la scelta di Salvini, e dei suoi compari nel monopolarismo, chierici del pensiero unico, quello del padrino, la conosciamo bene?

          Measles Is Spiking Around The Globe. How Worried Should We Be?      Cache   Translate Page      
The world has two kinds of measles problems. In low-income countries like Madagascar and in strife-ridden countries like Yemen, the disease takes a toll because vaccines are not available or accessible or affordable. In Madagascar alone, there have been nearly 80,000 cases and an estimated 900 deaths since September. And now there's a rise in measles in other countries, often wealthier ones, because of what's being called "vaccine hesitancy." Parents are opting out of the routine vaccination, which has been available since 1963 and is credited in helping to nearly eliminate the disease. That hesitancy has played a role in outbreaks around the world. Japan is facing the worst measles outbreak in a decade, with at least 221 cases . Since the start of 2019, more than 70 people have been infected in southwest Washington state, and there have been 17 cases in Vancouver, British Columbia. And in Costa Rica this year, an unvaccinated French boy brought the first case of measles to the country

          Biden, Warren and Sanders on Antitrust       Cache   Translate Page      

In the cover story of the November/December 2017 issue of the Washington Monthly, executive editor Gilad Edelman chronicled how anti-monopoly politics, including revived antitrust enforcement, had “seemed to go from fringe argument to a pillar of the Democrats’ economic plan, at least rhetorically, overnight.” (It turned out that years of earnest Washington Monthly articles on the subject played a role.) But, he cautioned, things like merely including a section on corporate concentration in the Democrats’ “Better Deal” agenda were just “baby steps.” It remained to be seen whether the issue would develop into a real campaign topic.

Two things happened this week that suggest the answer may be “yes.” Yesterday, at a rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Senator Bernie Sanders, who recently entered the presidential race, delivered a speech about how to improve the fortunes of rural America that heavily emphasized the need to combat agricultural monopolies. The argument sounded strikingly similar to the ones recently made by the Open Markets Institute’s Claire Kelloway, in the Washington Monthly, and Austin Frerick, in the American Conservative. 

Council Bluffs, IA – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will deliver remarks in Council Bluffs today. See below for full remarks:

Thank you all very much for being here tonight and thank you for being part of a political revolution which will transform America.

Thank you for being part of a campaign which is not only going to win the Democratic nomination, which is not only going to defeat Donald Trump, the most dangerous president in modern American history, but with your help is going to transform this country and, finally, create an economy and government which works for all Americans, and not just the one percent. Today, I want to welcome you to a campaign which says, loudly and clearly, that the underlying principles of our government will not be greed, kleptocracy, hatred and lies. It will not be racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia and religious bigotry. All of that is going to end.
The principles of our government will be based on justice: economic justice, social justice, racial justice and environmental justice. Tonight, I want to welcome you to a campaign which tells the powerful special interests who control so much of our economic and political life that we will no longer tolerate the greed of Wall Street, corporate America and the billionaire class – greed which has resulted in this country having more income and wealth inequality than any other major country on earth.

No. We will no longer stand idly by and allow 3 people in this country to own more wealth than the bottom half of America while, at the same time, nearly 20 percent of our children live in poverty, veterans sleep out on the streets and seniors cannot afford their prescription drugs. We will no longer accept 46 percent of all new income going to the top 1 percent, while millions of Americans are forced to work 2 or 3 jobs just to survive and over half of our people live paycheck to paycheck, frightened to death about what happens to them financially if their car breaks down or their child becomes sick.

Together, we are going to create a political system which is based on the democratic principles of one person – one vote – and end a corrupt system which allows billionaires to buy elections. Yes. We are going to overturn Citizens United and move to public funding of elections.

Today, we fight for a political revolution.

And tonight, I want to offer a very special thanks to the people of the great state of Iowa. In 2016, this is where the political revolution began. Thank you Iowa.

When I first came here to campaign in 2015 not a whole lot of people knew who I was, nobody took our campaign seriously, and we were at 3 percent in the polls. Further, the ideas that we were talking about then were considered by establishment politicians and mainstream media to be “radical” and “extreme” – ideas, they said, that nobody in America would support.

Raising the minimum wage to a living wage. Too radical. Guaranteeing health care to all as a right, not a privilege. Too radical. Creating up to 15 million jobs by rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure with a one trillion dollar investment. Too radical. Aggressively combatting climate change. Too radical. Reforming our broken criminal justice and immigration systems. Too radical. Not taking money from super PACs and the rich. Too radical. Ending the power of super delegates at the Democratic Convention. Too radical.
Well, a funny thing happened in Iowa over that year. On Caucus Night we didn’t win 3% of the vote, we won 50% of the vote and half of the pledged delegates.

And that great start in Iowa led us to win victories in 22 states around the country, 13 million votes, over 1700 delegates at the convention and more votes from young people – black, white, Latino, Asian American and Native American – than Trump and Clinton combined.

And, by the way. Those ideas that we talked about 4 years years ago that seemed so very radical at that time. Well, today, virtually all of those ideas are supported by a majority of the American people and have overwhelming support from Democrats and independents – and they’re ideas that Democratic candidates for president to school board are now supporting.

So Iowa, you helped begin the political revolution in 2016 and, with your help on this campaign, we are going to complete what we started here. We’re going to turn our vision and our progressive agenda into reality.

Today, as we launch our campaign here in Iowa, we say to the private health insurance companies, whether you like it or not, the United States will join every other major country on earth and guarantee healthcare to all people as a right. All Americans are entitled to go to the doctor when they’re sick and not go bankrupt after staying in the hospital. We will no longer accept the absurdity of paying almost twice as much per capita on health care, while we have a lower life expectancy and worse health care outcomes than many other countries.

The goal of health care must be to provide quality care to all in a cost effective way, not tens of billions in profits for the insurance companies and outrageous compensation packages for CEOs. In 2017, the top 65 healthcare CEO’s made $1.7 billion in compensation including: $83.2 million to David Wichmann, the CEO of UnitedHealth Group and 58.7 million to Mark Bertolini, the CEO of Aetna. We need a health care system that invests in disease prevention, doctors, nurses, dentists and rural clinics. We don’t a system which makes insurance companies and their CEOs super rich.

Yes. We will pass a Medicare for all single-payer program. Health care is a right. And, by the way, our legislation improves health care for seniors by providing coverage for dental care, hearing aids and eye glasses.

Today, we say to the pharmaceutical industry, that you will no longer charge the American people the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs, the result being that one out of five Americans cannot afford the prescriptions their doctors prescribe. Seniors in this country should not have to cut their pills in half. The outrageous greed of the pharmaceutical industry is going to end. We are going to lower prescription drug prices in this country.

Today, we say to Walmart, the fast food industry and other low wage employers: Stop paying your employees starvation wages.. Yes. We are going to raise the federal minimum wage to a living wage – $15 an hour. Nobody who works 40 hours a week in this country should live in poverty. And yes. We’re going to make it easier for people to join unions, not harder.

Four years ago, when we talked about the idea of a $15 an hour minimum wage, it seemed like an impossible dream. Well, since then, I’m happy to tell you that 5 states have passed $15 an hour legislation and, just yesterday, the U.S. House Committee on Labor and Education reported out a bill that will raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $15 an hour. And, I believe, that bill will pass the full House within the month.

And by the way. Today we say to corporate America that artificial intelligence and robotics are not going to be used just to throw workers out on the street. This exploding technology must serve human needs, not just corporate profits.

Today we say to the American people that we will rebuild our crumbling infrastructure: our roads, our bridges, our rail system and subways, our airports, our water systems and wastewater plants – and when we do that we create up to 13 million good paying jobs. And let’s be clear. When I talk about infrastructure and clean water we’re talking about strengthening clean water laws so that corporate polluters stop poisoning the drinking water that communities in Iowa and across the country rely on.
Today we say to the parents in this country that you and your kids deserve quality, affordable childcare. The children are our future, and they deserve the best possible head start in life with a high quality, universal pre-K program.

Today, we say to our young people that we want you to get the best education that you can, regardless of the income of your family. Good jobs require a good education. That is why we are going to make public colleges and universities tuition free, and substantially lower the outrageous level of student debt that currently exists. America once had the best educated workforce in the world, and we are going to make that happen again.

Today, we say to our senior citizens, that we understand that you cannot live in dignity when you are trying to survive on $13,000 or $14,000 a year in Social Security benefits. My Republican colleagues want to cut Social Security but we have some bad news for them. We’re not going to cut Social Security benefits. We’re going to expand them.

Today, we say to Donald Trump and the fossil fuel industry that climate change is not a hoax but is an existential threat to our country and the entire planet – and we intend to transform our energy system away from fossil fuel and into energy efficiency and sustainable energy and, in the process, create millions of good paying jobs. All of us have a moral responsibility to make certain that the planet we leave to our children and grandchildren is healthy and habitable.

Today, we say to the prison-industrial-complex that we are going to bring about real criminal justice reform. We are going to end the international embarrassment of having more people in jail than any other country on earth. Instead of spending $80 billion a year on jails and incarceration, we are going to invest in jobs and education for our young people. No more private prisons and detention centers. No more profiteering from locking people up. No more “war on drugs.” No more keeping people in jail because they’re too poor to afford cash bail.

And by the way, when we talk about criminal justice reform, we’re going to change a system in which tens of thousands of Americans every year get criminal records for possessing marijuana, but not one major Wall Street executive went to jail for destroying our economy in 2008 as a result of their greed, recklessness and illegal behavior. No. They didn’t go to jail. They got a trillion-dollar bailout.

Today, we say to the American people that instead of demonizing the undocumented immigrants in this country, we’re going to pass comprehensive immigration reform and provide a path toward citizenship. We’re going to provide legal status to the 1.8 million young people eligible for the DACA program, and develop a humane border policy for those who seek asylum. No more snatching babies from the arms of their mothers.
Today, we say to the top 1 percent and the large profitable corporations in this country – people who have never had it so good — that under a Bernie Sanders administration we’re going to end the massive tax breaks and loopholes that you currently enjoy.

We will no longer accept the absurd situation where large corporations like Amazon, Netflix and General Motors pay nothing in federal income taxes after raking in billions in profits. We will no longer tolerate the situation in which the wealthy and large corporations stash billions in tax havens throughout the world.
Yes, the wealthy and multi-national corporations in this country will start paying their fair share of taxes. We are going to end austerity for working families, and provide some austerity for large, multi-national corporations.

Today, we say to the military-industrial-complex that we will not continue to spend $700 billion a year on the military – more than the next ten nations combined. We’re going to invest in affordable housing, we’re going to invest in public education, we’re going to invest in rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure – not more nuclear weapons and never-ending wars.

Brothers and sisters: We’re going to win this election not because we have a super PAC funded by billionaires. We’re going to win this election because we will put together the strongest grassroots coalition in the history of American politics.

Donald Trump wants to divide us up by the color of our skin, our country of origin, our gender, our religion and our sexual orientation. We are going to do exactly the opposite. We are going to bring our people together – black, white, Latino, Native American, Asian American, gay and straight, young and old, men and women, native born and immigrant.

We are going to bring our people together for an unprecedented grassroots effort, which, I am happy to tell you, already has over one million people signed up as volunteers.

Brothers and sisters: As someone who represents Vermont, one of the most rural states in the country, let me be very honest with you in saying that the U.S. Congress has, for too long, ignored the many crises facing rural America.

In Iowa, in Vermont and all over this country, we have seen more and more young people leave the small towns they grew up in and love, not because they don’t want to stay, but because there are fewer and fewer jobs that pay a living wage.

We have seen schools, churches and community centers shut down, and once vibrant Main Streets become boarded up and deserted.

In Vermont, Iowa and all across rural America, we have seen family farmers go out of business as the prices they receive for their products decline rapidly and large agri-business corporations and factory farming take over agriculture.

We have seen rural hospitals and nursing homes shut down, and not enough doctors to provide the quality health care that rural American deserves.

Tragically, instead of seeing good jobs, education and health care coming into our rural communities, we are far too often seeing despair and depression – and a terrible increase in suicide and opioid addiction.
Brothers and sisters. We need policies for rural America that represent the needs of working people and farmers, not agri-business and multi-national corporations.

Among many other things that need to be done is for the federal government to enforce anti-trust laws, and I will appoint an Attorney General who will do just that.

It is not acceptable to me that the top four packing companies control more than 80 percent of the beef market, 63 percent of the pork market, and 53 percent of the chicken market.

And these numbers understate the situation.

In many communities, there really is only one buyer, which means food producers are at their mercy. They must use that corporation’s feed and livestock, they must accept that corporation’s costs, and they must accept that corporation’s lower and lower payment rates. In many cases, the farmer doesn’t even own the livestock or supplies — they are effectively contract employees who are forced to lease everything, and then get paid an inadequate wage for their very hard work.

With the federal government not enforcing antitrust laws, we have seen mergers like the Bayer-Monsanto approved, giving the two largest conglomerates 78 percent of the corn seed market.

Further, instead of protecting family owned farms, federal support for agriculture is skewed toward huge farms. The top 10 percent of farms currently receive 77 percent of all subsidies.

The time is long overdue for the U.S. government to stand with rural America, and that is exactly what I do.
———-
Brothers and sisters. Over the last two years, and before, you and I and millions of Americans have stood up and fought for justice in every part of our society. And we’ve had some successes.

Together, as billionaires and large corporations have attacked unions, destroyed pensions, deregulated the banks, and slashed wages, we have succeeded in raising the minimum wage to $15 in states and cities across the country. And forced large corporations like Amazon and Disney to do the same. And we have supported teachers who successfully stood up for their kids in strike after strike after strike.

Together, as the forces of militarism have kept us engaged in unending wars, we have stood arm-in-arm to fight back. For the first time in 45 years, we have utilized the War Powers Act to move us forward in ending the horrific Saudi-led war in Yemen.

Together, as so many of our young people have received criminal records for nonviolent offenses, we have fought to end the war on drugs, and have seen state after state decriminalize marijuana, and have seen communities expunge the criminal records of those arrested on these charges.

Let’s be honest: while we have won some victories, our struggles have not always been successful. But I am here to tell you, that because of all the work we have done, we are now on the brink of winning not just an election, but transforming our country.

And let me tell you what that means.

When We are in the White House, we will enact a federal jobs guarantee, to ensure that everyone is guaranteed a stable job. There is more than enough work to be done in this country. Let’s do it.

When We are in the White House we will not only end the decline of rural America, but attack the problem of urban gentrification and build the affordable housing we desperately need all across this country.
When We are in the White House, we will move aggressively to end the epidemic of gun violence in this country and pass the common sense gun safety legislation that the overwhelming majority of Americans want. People who should not have guns, will not have guns.

When We are in the White House, we are going to address not only the disparities of wealth and income that exist overall in our nation, but we will address the racial disparities of wealth and income. We are going to root out institutional racism wherever it exists. Not only will we end voter suppression, we are going to make it easier for people to vote – not harder.

When We are in the White House, we are going to protect a woman’s right to control her own body. That is her decision, not the government’s.

Make no mistake about it, this struggle is not just about defeating Donald Trump. This struggle is about taking on the incredibly powerful institutions that control the economic and political life of this country. And I’m talking about Wall Street, the insurance companies, the drug companies, the military-industrial complex, agri-business, the prison-industrial complex, the fossil fuel industry and a corrupt campaign finance system that enables billionaires to buy elections.

These powerful special interests are going to spend a lot of money to try to defeat us. But we have something they don’t have: the power of the people.

Brothers and sisters: We have an enormous amount of work in front of us. But this what I believe. If we stand together, if we don’t allow Trump and his friends to divide us up; If we stand together as black and white, Latino, Asian American and Native American. If we stand together as gay and straight, men and women, native born and immigrant. If we stand together as rural and urban – north, south, east and west.
If we understand that there really is no such thing as blue state or red state, but states throughout the country where working people are struggling to survive.

If we stand together, this country has an extraordinary future. Let’s make it happen.

 

The other big news came this morning, when fellow candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren made her own antitrust news by unveiling “a regulatory plan aimed at breaking up some of America’s largest tech companies, including Amazon, Google, Apple, and Facebook.” It’s a plan that sounds a bit like former Mark Zuckerberg mentor Roger McNamee’s groundbreaking 2018 Washington Monthly article, which sounded the alarm on the myriad threats posed by the platform monopolies.

Over the past couple of days, we’ve published a couple of articles that could be viewed as favorable to former vice-president Joe Biden, but now it’s time to issue him a warning. The Democratic Party is already on our antitrust bus, and he needs to get on board too, because his record as a senator on these issues is woeful.

People often mark the decline of antitrust enforcement as beginning with the election of Ronald Reagan, but that’s not accurate. The history is more complex, and anti-regulatory reform was a hot topic among a lot of Democrats in the 1970s, including many progressives like Ralph Nader. In a recent Huffington Post piece, Zach Carter takes us back to the history books.

Biden first came to the nation’s capital in 1973 as the junior senator from Delaware, one of the few bright spots for Democrats in a disastrous 1972 election. Like most new members of Congress, he exercised little influence in his early years. At 30, he was barely eligible for Senate service, even younger than Ted Kennedy had been when he took over his brother’s Senate seat in 1962. An inexperienced Biden looked up to Kennedy, revering him almost as an older sibling.

But as Kennedy ascended the Democratic Party ranks, the two men clashed over the party’s economic agenda.

“When the Senator from Massachusetts moved up to the chairmanship of the judiciary committee this year, the hearts of antitrust activists beat faster,” The New York Times noted in 1979. Kennedy had his sights on a sweeping piece of legislation that would block corporate mergers based on the total size of the resulting company ― even if the company was a conglomerate of unrelated businesses, and the merger did not increase a firm’s share of business in a particular market.

But Kennedy almost immediately ran into problems with Biden. When Coca-Cola urged Congress to exempt the soft drink industry from these antitrust regulations, Biden joined Republicans to pass such a bill over the objections of Kennedy and Department of Justice antitrust expert Ky Ewing, who concluded that the bill was “special interest legislation” with “no evidence” to support it.

Antitrust law was an early salvo in what became a quarter-century struggle to shift the Democratic Party’s base of support away from organized labor toward large corporations. The Biden-Kennedy split carried symbolic connotations beyond the policy implications of their individual votes. Where Kennedy wanted to use the Judiciary Committee to continue the old New Deal-era attack on corporate power, Biden became an advocate for corporate interests that had previously been associated with the Republican Party.

As Biden fought Kennedy on the Coca-Cola bill, he was also trying to thwart a Kennedy effort that would have empowered consumers to sue over a broader swath of antitrust violations. In 1977, the Supreme Court issued a controversial ruling that only those who directly purchased products could sue companies for antitrust violations. That meant that manufacturers who sold their goods through wholesalers could only be sued by the wholesalers, not consumers.

Kennedy prepared a bill that would have reversed the court’s decision, but Biden, in the words of The New York Times, “vexed” him by siding with Republicans. Biden was going out on a limb by bucking leadership. Only two of the committee’s 10 Democrats opposed Kennedy on the bill, and the other was Howell Heflin, a conservative Democrat from Alabama. The bill narrowly made it out of committee after Kennedy made some desperate last-minute concessions to win over Republican Sen. Charles Mathias (R-Md.), but the bill never got a floor vote. Kennedy’s broader antitrust ambitions died with it.

Biden wasn’t a lone wolf. President Jimmy Carter and many of the younger Democrats who filed into Washington after Watergate were eager to break with the liberal orthodoxy that had dominated their party’s thinking since the era of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Even Kennedy had successfully pressed Carter to deregulate the airline industry in 1978, beating Ronald Reagan to the era of deregulation by nearly three years.

“A lot of us sit around thinking up ways to vote conservative just so we don’t come out with a liberal rating,” Biden told Washingtonian in 1974. “When it comes to civil rights and civil liberties, I’m a liberal but that’s it. I’m really quite conservative on most other issues.”

If Biden wanted low marks from liberal groups, he got them. By 1978, Americans for Democratic Action, the preeminent liberal watchdog group of the time, gave Biden a score of just 50, lower than its ratings for some Republicans. Kennedy typically scored in the 90s.

 

The latter day villains in the antitrust battle are already revealing themselves in reaction to Senator Warren’s direct challenge to the power of platform monopolies:

Senator Elizabeth Warren proposed in a Medium post on Friday to dismantle so-called Big Tech — Facebook, Google, and Amazon — but antitrust experts found serious flaws in her proposal.

The presidential hopeful is using a “sledgehammer,” that is, breaking companies up, to address problems like data privacy that could be solved in other ways, noted Herbert Hovenkamp, a leading authority on antitrust law.

Because of economies of scale, Hovenkamp noted, bigger companies can offer cheaper products, and forcing them to spin off businesses could hurt consumers.

“Customers are not complaining about Amazon — it’s got some of the highest consumer evaluations in retailing. The story for smaller businesses is a little more mixed. But on balance, a lot of them like dealing with Amazon,” noted Hovenkamp, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania law school.

The tech companies have more money than a Saudi prince, and they have no shortage of “leading authorities on antitrust law” to provide quotes for Yahoo! Finance articles panning the proposals of the Democratic presidential contenders. This is going to be a major battle throughout the 2020 campaign and into the next decade.

Joe Biden was on the wrong side of this battle when it began in a very significant and major way. He’s going to need a “come to Jesus moment” on corporate consolidation and antitrust regulation if he wants to atone for his past and provide leadership for the future.

          Jeanine Pirro’s history of anti-Muslim attacks       Cache   Translate Page      


Melissa Joskow / Media Matters

During her March 9 show, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro suggested to viewers that Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) hijab was "indicative of her adherence to sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution." Amid widespread criticism of her hateful remarks, Fox News responded that the network “strongly condemn[s] Jeanine Pirro's comments,” but took no further public action. Pirro herself claimed that her “intention was to ask a question and start a debate" and that “of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution.” But this isn’t the first time Pirro has made hateful and extremist comments about Muslims while appearing on Fox News.

Here are some of Pirro’s prior attacks on Muslims:

Just last month, Pirro suggested that Omar should be grateful to be in the United States because “she is an empowered Muslim woman, while many Muslim women aren't allowed to be educated and they just started driving.” From the February 16 edition of Fox News' Justice with Judge Jeanine
 

JEANINE PIRRO (HOST): And the amazing part is she’s a freshman congresswoman, and I believe she came to the United States as a refugee, and now she’s in our Congress claiming that the Jewish state -- that Israel and Jews are what? Evil?

PIRRO: Have you heard that anyone who is going to move to remove her from Foreign --

QANTA AHMED (CONSERVATIVE COLUMNIST): No. And I think this presents a dilemma for the left. Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi, just like American Muslims have a liability in this woman, they have a liability in this congresswoman. She is showing the marriage of left-wing politics in the Democrats with Islamism. Bernie Sanders congratulated her and said he stands with his Muslim brothers and sisters. To me, he stands with Islamists, and they do not distinguish between the two. It's very problematic. The Islamism only succeeds by portraying itself as a victim and left-wing politics thrives on victimization, victim ideology. She's no victim, as you said. She came as an asylum seeker. She's moved to one of the highest offices in the land within 23 years. What other country gives a refugee that opportunity?

PIRRO: She is an empowered Muslim woman, while many Muslim women aren't allowed to be educated and they just started driving.

During an unhinged rant in 2015 about “radical Muslim terrorists,” Pirro repeatedly fearmongered about Islam and Muslims. She claimed that “this Islamic cancer metastasizes throughout the world” and argued that Muslims “have conquered us through immigration” and “through interfaith dialogue.” In the same screed, she claimed “there is a reverse crusade in progress” and said that “there will be efforts to limit our First Amendment, our free speech, to comply with Sharia blasphemy laws.” From the January 10, 2015 edition of Fox News' Justice with Judge Jeanine

JEANINE PIRRO (HOST): We need to kill them. We need to kill them. The radical Muslim terrorists hellbent on killing us. You’re in danger, I’m in danger. We’re at war and this is not going to stop. After this week’s brutal terror attacks in France, hopefully everybody now gets it. And there’s only one group that can stop this war: the Muslims themselves. Our job is to arm those Muslims to the teeth, give them everything they need to take out these Islamic fanatics. Let them do the job. Let them have at it. And as they do, we need to simply look the other way. It is time for this to be over, and stop sending American dollars to any Arab country that does not support this mission. Pakistan at the top of the list. Force Arab nations to choose: They’re either with us or they’re against us. And stop with this nuclear negotiation nonsense. They don’t operate the way we do. You can’t negotiate, you can’t mediate, and you can’t bargain. You can’t even reason with these people.

Now I’ve been telling you for a year that they’re coming for us. That there is a reverse crusade in progress -- a Christian genocide. Hundreds of thousands of innocents killed in the Middle East. Seven months ago, I said that we need to bomb ISIS, as it began its steamroll through Iraq -- bomb them, bomb them, and bomb them again -- for which I was roundly criticized. Our country’s response to this threat? The FBI destroys tens of thousands of documents deemed offensive to Islam. The CIA removes the word “Islamic” before “terrorist” in those Benghazi talking points. The Fort Hood massacre, the Oklahoma beheading? Both “workplace violence.” Are we morons?

And as we cower to these Islamic fanatics, our president and former Secretary of State [Hillary] Clinton say they will prosecute the man who made the video, free speech be damned. They call murders accompanied by “Allah akbar,” “workplace violence.” This surender is nothing more than a coward's response to the fear of this fanatical terrorism. And this political correctness will be the death of us. They can kill us but we can’t hurt their feelings? I’m surprised the president hasn’t signed a new executive order that simply says, “Don’t offend Muslims.” And make no mistake -- as sure as I’m talking to you, there will be efforts to limit our First Amendment, our free speech, to comply with Sharia blasphemy laws which call for death to those who slander the Prophet Muhammad.

Our government’s response to the terror threat is to have an interfaith dialogue to try to understand and empathize with the enemy. And when they want to shut us up, they call us Islamophobes. Muslim groups like CAIR and the Nation of Islam have been integrated into our society, Muslims invited to worship at our National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. We’re directed by a political correctness that is so bizarre, so disconnected from reality that it does nothing but assist our enemy in our own destruction. They have conquered us through immigration, they have conquered us through interfaith dialogue, and they have conquered us by co-opting our leaders into a position of embarrassment.

As this Islamic cancer metastasizes throughout the world -- Boko Haram in Nigeria, al-Shabab in Somalia, Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, Al Qaeda, ISIS -- and as it goes through Europe, it is headed our way.

"Stop defending Islam, start protecting Americans": After Obama noted violence carried out in the name of religion isn't limited to Islam, Pirro furiously listed off violent attacks by Muslim perpetrators. Pirro cited violent incidents by Muslim perpetrators (while ignoring that right-wing terror was considered the main terrorist threat in the U.S.), asking, “Mr. President, please identify what other violence is being committed against Americans in the name of any other religion -- or is it just a coincidence?”

JEANINE PIRRO (HOST): Mr. President, what’s most interesting is that with the crusaders you so easily identify them as Christians. Why is it so hard for you to identify today’s jihadi terrorists as Muslim? Throw a rock at Christians, no problem, but never speak of Islamic terrorists. Mr. President, aside from the obvious that was then and this is now, the Quran is interpreted by some as demanding jihad, the taxing or killing of nonbelievers, and a worldwide caliphate. And surprise -- today’s terrorists are beheading, imposing that same jizya tax, and in their march to create an even bigger Islamic State. Stop apologizing and stop pussyfooting around with this language dance. We get it -- not all Muslims are terrorists. It was Egypt, a country of 90 percent Muslim that rose up against the jihadists who were also Muslim.

Consider this: The first World Trade center attack in 1993 -- by Muslims. The USS Cole bombers were Muslim. The Fort Hood shooter was Muslim. The shoe bomber was Muslim. The underwear bomber was Muslim. The Boston bombers were Muslim. The September 11 hijackers were Muslim. Mr. President, please identify what other violence is being committed against Americans in the name of any other religion -- or is it just coincidence?

You identify terrible deeds in the name of the Christ. Why not identify terrible deeds in the name of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam? Calling Fort Hood “workplace violence” is a joke. People can’t believe that that’s how you characterize it. But then again, your administration erases words out of reports identifying terrorists as Islamic. Stop defending Islam, start protecting Americans. Stop saying what Islam doesn’t stand for, and start saying what you as our president intend to do about this.

During a 2016 appearance on Fox’s Hannity, Pirro suggested Middle Eastern refugees were violent and couldn’t assimilate. She said this about Middle Eastern refugees: “We've got these guys beating their wives, you've got domestic violence, you've got them hating gays, and we are bringing them to this country. We think they're going to assimilate. They are not.” She also agreed with host Sean Hannity that “this is a clash of cultures.” From the September 20, 2016 edition of Fox News' Hannity

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I honestly think that the issue of not saying "radical Islam," Jay -- and there's such a difference between Hillary and Donald Trump -- the issue of vetting refugees and allowing people that come from cultures that clash -- directly clash with our Constitution, that Americans fundamentally understand that we have to know if they're coming here to become American and assimilate or do they want to proselytize and bring their value system, which is the opposite of ours, with them?

JEANINE PIRRO: It is insane. It's insanity. But when we've got these guys beating their wives, you've got domestic violence, you've got them hating gays, and we are bringing them to this country. We think they're going to assimilate. They are not. And what we've got to do, they've got to move their citizenship --

HANNITY: This is a clash of cultures.

PIRRO: Exactly.

During another appearance on Hannity, Pirro claimed the United States needs to know if refugees or immigrants “believe in Sharia law,” arguing that if they do, “that means it is inconsistent with the Constitution. You do not believe in free speech, you do not believe in women's rights, you do not believe in gay rights.” From the May 24, 2017 edition of Fox News' Hannity

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): How is it that if somebody comes from a country with what I call a clash of cultures -- where they literally believe men should tell women how to dress, and men should tell women if they can go on an airplane and travel or leave the house without a male relative, where gays and lesbians are killed, where Christians and Jews are persecuted -- I'm trying to fully and completely understand why, if you come from that country, we need to know -- do you believe that? Do you want to proselytize us or do you want to join our family?

JEANINE PIRRO: You know, Sean, that is exactly the issue. Do you believe in Sharia law, and if you believe in that, that means it is inconsistent with the Constitution. You do not believe in free speech, you do not believe in women's rights, you do not believe in gay rights. All the things that they would trash you and me for if, God forbid, we didn't believe in those rights, we are willing to allow people that we know are individuals -- actually, we don't know who they are -- to come here, stick to their own rules, and then say, “Gee, if they kill us, well, we have to make sure that nobody commits a crime of hate.” This is hogwash, Sean. And what is happening in the U.K. --

HANNITY: See, you're xenophobic, you're homophobic, you're a racist.

PIRRO: I am not.

HANNITY: Well, that's what the left says.

PIRRO: I am none of those things.

HANNITY: Neither am I.

PIRRO: And I'll tell you why, Sean, and neither are you. The problem is that we expect these people to integrate. And one of the issues is -- and assimilate. One of the issues is they don't want to. And now we've got people in Congress saying because they are de facto segregated from the rest of us that we have to understand that they’re angry with us. We let them in the country.

In 2016, Pirro argued that “we’ve got to start having a conversation about surveillance in mosques” and said she agreed with former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich that the United States should “test every person here who is of a Muslim background, and if they believe in Sharia, they should be deported.” From the July 15, 2016 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends

JEANINE PIRRO: I agree with [Newt Gingrich]. I totally agree with him. We have a president who is an apologist. Look, I'm an amateur and in June of 2014 when I first heard about ISIS, I said bomb them, bomb them, and then bomb them again. I took some heat, but I was right. They were the JV team then. If we had done something, if this president would stop apologizing for what we do, what we are, and stop saying, “You Christians, it's your turn,” as he did at a prayer breakfast, then maybe America would be united in a way where we understand that they're coming. They're here, we're next. I've got to tell you I'm as aggravated as everyone who sat in this chair today. If we've got people standing in the blood of innocent victims when they go for an innocent celebration, then we've got to recognize that we've got a problem at the top of this country.

Our president didn’t want to support [Egyptian President Abdel Fattah] el-Sisi. Thirty-five million Egyptians stood up and said, "We don't want the Muslim Brotherhood. We are Muslims, we don't want the Muslim Brotherhood." And this president would prefer to give tanks and airplanes to [former Egyptian President Mohamed] Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood, forget that. Right now, they are here, they're going to kill us. Women, children, it doesn't matter. We have got to declare war on them. We've got to start having a conversation about surveillance in mosques. We've got to make sure that in the jails these imams are going in and radicalizing people, they just want to kill us. I mean, how dumb are we? And Newt is right. We're sheep saying, “Why are the wolves killing us?” Or, “Be nice to the wolves, not all wolves are bad.” Baloney!

While guest hosting on Hannity, Pirro asked an imam if “Muslims here in America need to speak out more to try to prevent [terrorist] attacks from happening?” and then cut him off and told another guest that “the Muslim community is not coming forward.” From the December 27, 2016 edition of Fox News' Hannity

JEANINE PIRRO (GUEST HOST): That was President-elect [Donald Trump] during his recent thank you tour vowing to fight radical Islam. After the latest terror attack in Europe and the radical Islamist threat growing around the world, do Muslims here in America need to speak out more to help to try to prevent these attacks from happening?

PIRRO: We have got this Islamic threat. You don't deny that?

IMAM MOHAMMAD ALI ELAHI: Well, judge, before I start --

PIRRO: That's a yes or no. Let’s start with a premise, there is an Islamic threat facing the United States, correct? Yes or no?

ELAHI: Well, let me answer this way. First of all --

PIRRO: No.

ELAHI: I'm going to answer your question. But let me first of all say, I mean, to the Pope Francis prayer for peace in Christmas ceremony --

PIRRO: I'm happy for the Pope.

ELAHI: Peace for Syria, peace for Yemen, peace for Iraq, peace for Holy Land, for Africa. And also peace for America, an America free of racism and hatred and intimidation and violence and crimes, and everything.

PIRRO: What’s your point?

ELAHI: My point is that first of all the expression of “Islamic radical” is kind of hijacking the identity of the Muslims.

PIRRO: OK, all right, you don't like the term. You don't like the term.

ELAHI: It is like somebody --

PIRRO: Can I ask you a question? Who is responsible for the World Trade Center? Who is responsible for San Bernardino? Orlando? Paris? All right, Imam, you know what, you got all your time.

PIRRO: Brigitte, the Muslim community is not coming forward. So Imam, I'm going to give you another chance, I'm going to give you another chance. Otherwise we're going to finish totally with Brigitte. All right, here is the chance. Should the family of the San Bernardino attackers, who saw the weapons, who saw all of the instruments that they used, should they have said something and why didn’t they?

In 2017, Pirro claimed that President Donald Trump’s Muslim ban is targeted at “Joe Schmo Muhammad,” who is from a country where “they promised to send in individuals and jihadists to kill us.” From the February 10 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

JEANINE PIRRO: This is -- and let me make one thing perfectly clear: If you are not a citizen of the United States of America, you do not have the right to come to the United States, period, end of the story. The president has a plenary authority, the power to determine who comes into this country. And all this talk about constitutional rights -- if you are from Somalia, I got a news flash, you do not have constitutional rights in this country. And Congress has agreed with the plenary power authority of the president in terms of national security and immigration with, what is it, 8 U.S.C., what is it, 1182-F. When they said that the president at any time can make a decision to block an alien from coming to this country. So it's not about people with green cards. It's about Joe Schmo Muhammad, who doesn't have any vetting from another country that -- where they promised to send in individuals and jihadists to kill us.


          Sodomy Laws in the US and around the World      Cache   Translate Page      
A sodomy law is a law that defines certain sexual acts as crimes. The precise sexual acts meant by the term sodomy are rarely spelled out in the law, but are typically understood by courts to include any sexual act deemed to be "unnatural" or immoral. Sodomy typically includes anal sex, oral sex and bestiality. In practice, sodomy laws have rarely been enforced against heterosexual couples (Wikipedia)


Sodomy arrest sparks controversy… 34 years ago

Michael Hardwick is arrested for sodomy after a police officer observes him having sex with another man in his own bedroom in Georgia. Although the district attorney eventually dropped the charges, Hardwick decided to challenge the constitutionality of Georgia’s law.

“John and Mary Doe,” who joined in Hardwick’s suit against Michael Bowers, the attorney general of Georgia, maintained that the Georgia law “chilled and deterred” them from engaging in certain types of sex in their home. But in 1986, the Supreme Court handed down its decision in Bowers v. Hardwick, ruling by a 5-4 vote that states could continue to treat certain types of consensual sex as criminal acts.

Apparently, Justice Byron White had characterized the issue not as the right to privacy in one’s own bedroom, but rather as the right to commit sodomy. Viewed in this narrow manner, it was no surprise that he was unable to find such a clause in the Constitution. Justice Lewis Powell, who also voted to uphold the law, later called his vote a mistake.

In June 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a Texas law under which two men had been arrested for having consensual sex at home. The 6-3 Lawrence v. Texas decision reversed the infamous 1986 Bowers decision and finally dealt a death blow to sodomy laws throughout the country.

In its landmark ruling Lawrence v. Texas, the Supreme Court ruled that anti-sodomy laws —sometimes referred to as “crimes against nature” laws — are unconstitutional. But 12 states continue to keep such laws on their books. Of 14 states that had anti-sodomy laws, only Montana and Virginia have repealed theirs since the Supreme Court ruling, while anti-sodomy laws remain on the books in Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.



You may believe anti-sodomy laws are not harmful because they can’t be enforced. But they are an important symbol of homophobia for those who oppose LGBT rights. What’s more, the laws create ambiguity for police officers, who may not be aware they are unconstitutional.

If a policeman looks it up, he will see that sodomy is a violation of Louisiana state law, for example, according to Marjorie Esman, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana.

Sodomy Laws around the World

In the recent years, sodomy related laws have been repealed or judicially struck down in all of Europe, North America, and South America, except for Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.

There have never been Western-style sodomy related laws in the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, North Korea, South Korea, or Vietnam. Additionally, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia were part of the French colony of 'Indochine'; so if there had been any laws against male homosexual acts in those countries, they would have been dismantled by French colonial authorities, since male homosexual acts have been legal in France and throughout the French Empire since the issuing of the aforementioned French Revolutionary penal code in 1791.

This trend among Western nations has not been followed in all other regions of the world (Africa, some parts of Asia, Oceania and even western countries in the Caribbean Islands), where sodomy often remains a serious crime. For example, male homosexual acts, at least in theory, can result in life imprisonment in Barbados and Guyana.

In Africa, male homosexual acts remain punishable by death in Mauritania, Sudan, and some parts of Nigeria and Somalia. Male and sometimes female homosexual acts are minor to major criminal offences in many other African countries; for example, life imprisonment is a prospective penalty in Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Uganda. A notable exception is South Africa, where same-sex marriage is legal.

In Asia, male homosexual acts remain punishable by death in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Brunei, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen; but anti-sodomy laws have been repealed in Israel (which recognizes but does not perform same-sex marriages), Japan, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, and Thailand. Additionally, life imprisonment is the formal penalty for male homosexual acts in Bangladesh, the Maldives, Myanmar, Pakistan, and Qatar.

"The pranksters also held one more conversation with Abrams in March, according to Russia 24, where the Special Representative told them that the US is not planning military intervention in Venezuela, but would like to “make the Venezuelan military nervous,” regarding possible guarantees ruling out military threats from the US to be “a tactical mistake.” However, according to the phone call, Abrams said that the main sources of leverage against the Venezuelan government are still financial, economic and diplomatic pressure."

I'm not sold on this, as I doubt Pence is listening to Guido, but he may very well be furious at the CIA for their typical horrendous intelligence work.  Of course, this may just be setting up Trump throwing Guido under the bus on the basis that he lied to Pence.

How lucky was that? The odds are about the same as the chance of my vacuum cleaner breaking down just before James Dyson knocks at my door to ask for directions. There are very few people indeed in the UK trained to give nursing care to victims of chemical weapon attack, and of all the people who might have walked past, it just happened to be the most senior of them!"

Greenwald versus MI6.  "Michael Cohen Scooped by Julian Assange" (Garrison).  This whole mess started when Stone, trying to get hired by the Trump campaign, claimed he had privileged access to Assange, and thus Clinton emails. He didn't have such access - his friend Credico may have had it - but Stone's self-advertising has grown into a monster in the hands of the Clintonistas.
