Ukraine summary:  Willie Wonka won some sort of election in the rump state of Ukraine, Putin gets ready to hand in his Golden Ticket, and Oompa-Loompas - in this case, football hooligans (badly) playing soldier - continue to murder civilians in a desultory way. I thought they were doing a complete restaging of Duck Soup, but apparently it was another movie.

"White House mistakenly identifies CIA chief in Afghanistan"  If Barry wanted to replace the CIA guy without much fuss, 'accidentally' leaking his name is the easiest way to do it.  It appears the name originally came from 'U.S. military officials', and then passed through the White House press office.

I like how Barry pays a secret visit to Afghanistan without even a courtesy visit to the government there.  Very End of Empire.

"CIA Officer Raymond Mark Davidson"  "CIA Officer Jeffrey Egan"

"Israeli Archaeological Narratives as an Instrument of Land Grabbing"

"Secrets, lies and Snowden's email: why I was forced to shut down Lavabit"  "Ladar Levison Explains How The US Legal System Was Stacked Against Lavabit"  Guy running an encrypted email service is completely taken aback, and completely unprepared, when the jack-booted thugs show up.

"Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever"  All the numbers are made up to maximize return to the banksters.

I need to lighten things up around here:  "Why is Greece the most anti-Semitic country in Europe?":
"“Despite the poll showing high levels of anti-Semitism, it must be noted that in Greece over the last four years we have not had any anti-Semitic violence against people or Jewish institutions,” said Victor Eliezer, the secretary general of the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece.

“This is not a poll about violence, but rather a survey on stereotypes, and yes, there are a lot of stereotypes among the Greek public,” he said.

The poll gauged anti-Semitism based on whether respondents agreed with a majority of 11 statements on Jewish power, loyalty, money and behavior that the ADL says suggest bias. They include such statements as Jews talk too much about what happened to them during the Holocaust; Jews are more loyal to Israel than to the countries they live in; Jews think they are better than other people; Jews have too much power in the business world; and Jews have too much control over global affairs."
