Colliding priorities

"US bows to pressure on El Salvador seed program"  Sometimes priorities collide, and Monsanto has to take a back seat to immigrant bashing.

The judicial system has been a horrible disappointment in this era of the 1%, but sometimes judges - in this case, Justice Anne Mactavish (although she is not without the usual flaws) - surprise you:  "The 2012 modifications to the Interim Federal Health Program potentially jeopardize the health, the safety and indeed the very lives of these innocent and vulnerable children in a manner that shocks the conscience and outrages our standards of decency."

"Leaving the Huffington Post" Huffington Post caught in a lie over its Zionist censorship.  We can't begin to imagine how much of this censorship goes on behind the scenes.

"The Superpower and the Caliphate" Ford gets the subtleties right.  The United States is demonstrating every symptom of imperial collapse, including dabbling in areas it can no longer control on the assumption that it still has its old power.

Greenwald tweet (read the responses, not perhaps what he'd hoped for, though of course he could easily release everything else and hide the private emails):
 "Do "publish-it-all" people believe the 160,000 emails from private individuals in Snowden archive should be published?"

"Now Applebaum"

The point of the exercise is not to make Americans safer by fighting the Global War On Terror.  The point of the exercise is to create a general climate of fear and paranoia to suppress any thought of political dissent.  So: "In NSA-intercepted data, those not targeted far outnumber the foreigners who are"  The publication of this article is part of the NSA paranoia-creation program, as of course are Greenwald's selective releases.

The shit is really sticking to Barry.

"The Tragedy of Collective Punishment"  We're hearing about this as Bibi took it too far, and it is starting to backfire.  The Jews are very close to losing the big bonus of having the Palestinians police their own political repression.

"Kiosks selling Dead Sea products ejected from New Zealand’s Westfield malls"  Note the layers of depravity - the specific reason for the ejection was "sales practices on elderly and vulnerable shoppers".

For future reference:  "Federal State of Novorossiya"
