Jeff Rense's New Psycho -Nut Link

Jeff Rense loves to link to sites that are anti Semitic, anti woman, and or racist. He loves that stuff. His newest darling is something called The Occidental Observer, which says, in its mission statement, that it's a site dealing with themes of white identity, which would "surely" be seen as wrong, psycho even, they say, but someone has to do it.

Two articles on the site that are linked to from are about Jewish comedian Sandra Bernhard. They don't like her because of her attacks on Sarah Palin. Lots of stuff about "if Bernhard had said "black," or some other race, she wouldn't have gotten away it" kind of comments.

Well, the whole issue of Christians appropriating the OT aside and Messianic Jews, etc. aside, what clearly escapes the pundits at "The Occidental" is the whole concept of power: who has it, who's had it, who wants to keep it going, who appropriates whom . Jews are a minority in this country. They're a minority everywhere, except for Israel. There are far more Muslims in this country than there are Jews. To be fair, that doesn't include, presumably, the number of Jews who decide they're not going to identify themselves as Jews. The opposite side of the coin are those non-Jews who are Christians who like to play Jew. Anyway, it's like what comedian Chris Rock said in his latest comedy special. To paraphrase, the skinny chick doesn't get to make fun of the fat chick; the fat chick can make fun of the skinny chick all she wants.

Most Jews in this country are of European origin, whether Eastern or not. Bigots and misogynistic writers like the ones at The Occidental like it both ways: white people ie Americans, "real" Americans, don't ya know, are often refereed to as Europeans. (Unless you're French. We all know the French are elite and hate America, and so if you have French blood don't cop to it. Say you're English or something.) White Americans of Euro descent have a really bad rap, say these types. Forgetting that many Jews are also of European descent. Ah, but many are of Eastern European descent, which is awfully suspicious! Take me for example; I"m Russian Jew, Ukrainian Russian Jew. Well, until they've changed it, now I'm not Russian anymore. Tell that to my family! Eastern Europeans are pinko commies, and that's a lot worse than elite French people.

Fringe, on the FOX (we say we're news but we lie) network, premired last night. Fringe is a sort of X Files (not as good, never as good, except maybe for Torchwood) and I enjoyed it. A bit predictable, but that's not always a bad thing; after all, it's not the fact you can predict what's coming, it's how it's done. They did a good job of bringing in a whole bunch of paranoid but that doesn't mean they're not watching you scenarios. Excellent!

In fact, one of my favorite lines from last night's show was "Excllent! Let's get some LSD." (Dr. Bishop.) I'm not sure if that's the exact quote but that's the idea.

The program did have one little twist I wasn't expecting, other than that, okay, so predictable, but as I said, no problem there.

I've always found it a strange sense of topsy turvy universe down the rabbit hole stuff that shows like X Files, Fringe, Prison Break, Millenium (a great show!) American Dad, and a host of others that deal with conspiracies, anti heroes, anti structure, and paranoia, are Fox Network programs. Fox, where news is only what they say it is, right wing clown shoes flap away, and lies are told with somber stone cold faces of truthiness, to paraphrase Stephen Colbert.

Keith Olbermann Special Comment on "Trademark" September 11

Olbermann has done it again, this time giving an impassioned (as always) commentary on the "repugs" twisted use of the horrible events of September 11th for their own fear mongering, exploitive agenda.

The blog is 'Special Comments Blog" and it's where you can find all of Olbermann's comments on video.

The Taliban: Wear Hijab, Or Be Disfigured

This isn't pretty but it's necessary. A very brave blogger!
Pakistani Taliban: wear hijab, or be disfigured. I think many non-Muslims and or non-Middle Easterners are afraid to expose the violent, fundi, fanatical aspects of Islam for fear of being seen as racist, or politically incorrect. And maybe, a bit of queasiness about bringing up the subject at all. Many of those who see nothing wrong, racist, anti-Semitic or politically incorrect in criticizing Israel balk at questioning the violent and theocratic actions of that faction of Islam. Or any other group, Christian, what have you, that does evil things. (And no, I am NOT suggesting Israel is above criticism.) I am suggesting that, sometimes, those who harbor racist views towards Jews use the sometimes valid criticisms of Israel's actions as an excuse. But that's really an entirely different subject. The point is, Islamic fascism is scary and real, and it isn't racist to point that out.

While these things are often ignored, it's surreal to know that 26% of the U.S. thinks Obama is Muslim. Even though he isn't. And what if he were? There are more Muslims in the U.S. than Jews. It isn't illegal to be a Muslim. No, it's only fear and ignorance, along with bigotry - and not so veiled racism -- that makes some people believe that Obama is "Muslim" as if that's something wrong.

Dahlings, Big Brother Is Here! Wake UP!

More scary news from DHS. That's Department of Homeland Security. According to this article from the Washington Times, the DHS wants every airline passenger to wear an "Electronic ID Bracelet." To be worn from the moment you have your ticket -- in fact, it will replace the boarding pass -- to the moment you disembark. But wait, there's more. The "bracelet" (just what I want to finish off my stunning traveling outfit) will also:

• contain personal information about the traveler

• be able to monitor the whereabouts of each passenger and his/her luggage

• shock the wearer on command, completely immobilizing him/her for several minutes ( Want some torture with your peanuts?, P. Jeffrey Black and Jeffrey Denning.)

However, the DHS responded and insisted this "bracelet" would only be used in a hijacking situation. Meaning, they wouldn't be activated. Moot point, mon amis.

Copy and Paste since I"m too lazy to type in the whole url:

A group of Anonymous has a Chat

Found this! Anonymous hit Eugene this past Feb. it seems, they were stuck, couldn't get a ride to Portland. I don't see much difference here between "holy rollers" and these guys. . .

Killer Trees in the UK!

However, it isn't funny. . .

Have they gone all out stark raving looney tunes mad hatter insane over there? I'm convinced that England is a very large laboratory, where all the fascist, NWO, corporate-globalist Illuminati Dr. Evil plans can be tested out before they try it elsewhere. Like here. Surveillance cameras, arresting people at the drop of a hat -- literally, it seems, or at least sausage bits -- RFID cards ... it gets worse.

Big Brother is here and he's stomping across the planet.

England wants to get rid of trees; mow them down. That's a bit dramatic, but what they want to do is have a lock stop tree inspection for all "garden trees" and if your tree isn't up to standards, it's done for, as New safety regulations for trees could lead to expensive inspections tells us.

Expensive inspections are to be paid for by owners. One reason why this is so bleak, while seeming funny, like "killer trees on the loose!" it isn't. Those without the money to pay for tree inspections will be treeless. The have nots end up living in gloomy, nature less projects, while those who can, live with tidy trees on their bright streets. On the surface it's a safety issue, they tell us, underneath, is more of the arbitrary rules sprung upon citizens, just for its own sake.

But most Americans don't care, they don't see it, they mock and accuse people who rant about these things as being "paranoid" or an alarmist or a crank. As long as we have our TVs and Dollar Stores and McDonald's, as long as we're not homeless and maybe have a bit of health insurance, we think we're living the good life and all is well. After all, no one's hassling the likes of us. So what's there to worry about?

Radical Anonymous vs. Scientology

What scares me about this is the zealotry the so-called "radical" Anonymous movement has for its vendetta against Scientology. And listen, I am NO fan of Scientology, so don't go there with me kiddo.

Given their favorite icon; the mask from V, you'd think the Anonymous ones would go after what fucking matters. An example: George Bush and fellow cohorts. Calls for impeachment. Voting fraud. (And don't go there with me either; about how there's been voting fraud forever, and all elections are rigged in some way, etc. Does that make it right? Fuck no.)

As the line from V For Vendetta goes (which is a great movie)
People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Paraphrased from Thomas Jefferson, who said:
When the people fear the government you have tyranny...when the government fears the people you have liberty.

Ironic they're running around with those masks on, attacking a religion rather than politics. Oh yes, I know that religion and politics are just about interchangable in many ways. . .point is, they're missing the point.

Scary times, my friends. In more esoteric ways than one might think . . .

Jurassic Park comes true: How scientists are bringing dinosaurs back to life with the help of the humble chicken

Scientists with an astounding sense of entitlement (I mean, they're scientists and all!) are blithely going about bringing back the dinosaurs.
just like in the hit Steven Spielberg movie, these men and women are intent on cracking the genetic code of the dinosaurs and opening the possibility of bringing them back to life.

Yeah, okay: did they see those movies?

Professor Jack Horner, a paleontologist at Montana State University, says glibly:
'The science is there. I don’t think there are any barriers, other than the philosophical.’

Yes, that pesky philosophical stuff. Such a drag.

Then there’s this comment about paleontologist Hans Larsson of Canada’s McGill University:
He wanted to see if he could make a chicken grow a dinosaur’s tail, turning the clock back millions of years.

Manipulating the genetic make-up, he was able to extend the tail by a further three vertebrae.

It gets worse, like the part about Horner’s fantasy of walking up on stage with a “little dino chicken” walking behind him.

The understatement of the century is this comment: Pausing for a second, he adds:
Whether it is a good idea or not is another question...

It is very interesting; it’s fascinating that they can do these things, and the process of discovery is very exciting. But as they say, just because you can, doesn’t always mean you should.
