News Headlines:
22nd of August 2014  11:00 EDT (NYC) [Comment & Analysis]

Robin Williams, Dead at 63, perhaps the greatest Comedian in the USA's last 40 years of Entertainment will be sorely missed in a world devastated by poverty, homelessness & starvation in constant need for levity and laughs, deprived of his miraculous talent of poking fun at ourselves. RIP
Post Note: Robin's latest medical diagnosis was Parkinson's Disease, which should satify people's desperate need to understand how another person can take their own life.  Someone so alert and vital may have felt he'd have been a burden to Wife and Kids, or 100 other rationale which only he knew, and it remained his personal right and choice.


France's Hollande' upstages Obama announcing weapons to Kurds within "hours".  Since they grabbed Irbil & Tikrit, promptly lost to ISIS, (some say "ISIL" & still others accepted the Gauntlet laid down by establishment of a Caliphate called "Islamic State" spanning the very same territory.  We piss on ISIS and any name they construct as thieves of Islam and murdering thugs. We offer no counsel nor respite and merely wish for their physical elimination-negotiation is not a goal nor will it yield a result other than delaying their destruction, the only option for 21st Century Civil Society.

Mssrs. Cheney & Bush, having long ago unleashed the Dogs from beyond the gates of Hell, have now burdened the world with an endless effort to destroy enemies of modernization, (even of those who utilize the very same tools-Social Media, Satellite, Cellular et al-to advance their cause.

As ISIS takes parts of Kurdistan, victimizing & kidnapping non-Sunna sects, from Christian to Yazidi, and Pope Francis sends Cardinal as Emissary, Obama opens new front in Air War, insisting the USA was not a substitute for Iraqi Air Force, or Political settlement. Baghdad holds another view, namely that Obama ignored pleas for Air Support, until the USA Consul in Irbil (memories of Benghazi), and Kurds (USA & Israeli allies) were threatened. PM Nouri Kamal Al-Maliki asks "What are we Gefilte Fish?"

Now Parliament appoints a new President (Fuad Masum) and he, in turn chooses a new PM,(American educated, Haider Al-Abadi) & Malaki says "Hell no, he won't go..." Twenty-Four hours and the NYT headline screams Maliki can not hold it together and also issued a "No involvement in Politics" order to the Army (after a call from Mr. Biden?), as Americans and Iraqis grew concerned a Coup was being mounted.

Read The Washington Post  Air Lift to North includes Food & Water. (Britain in for Air Drops, not Ground Troops, says Cameron).

Ebola Outbreak overwhelms Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, closing borders, while an infected Doctor (amazingly, stupidly) "Flies into Nigeria", contaminating the hospital, then promptly, dying.

Watch Here (on CTV) Read about it... as Chevron-Exxon, Caterpillar, among others, suspend operations or evacuateworkers.

Once again, the NY Times takes on the CIA, this instance a front page article regarding current Director, John Brennan, playing "Left Guard" (or "Right-Guard" more appropriately), and the barrage of criticism from all fronts since the Senate "Intelligence" Committee produced a report, months ago, detailing CIA Torture programs, applied to hundreds (300+) of kidnapped civilians, (3000?), grabbed worldwide, charged with no crime, provided no Counsel, held in secret "White Sites" (aside from racism, why are all things 'bad' demarcated as "Black", like "Black Sites" and "Black Friday"?).

It appears Mr. Brennan made a plea, perhaps illegal (?), on behalf of George Tenet, Porter Goss and Mike Hayden, to pre-clear the reports' text, reading it in a DNI room, arranged by Denis McDonough, Mr. Obama's 'All things go-to-guy'. It is surely not clear how legal it can be to allow three former CIA directors, lapsed security clearances & 'Hat-in-hand', to preview an un-redacted report?

The combined handicraft of McDonough, Feinstein and Brennan only compounds the lawlessness, and does not restore it nor provide the imprimatur of legitimacy. The opposite, in fact, as they all run for cover. Do not forget we spoke of this recently as Brennan had CIA staff spy on Senate staff, to see what the report would say, in advance of release, and to try and frame staffers for access to none designated CIA portals and files, after the PC's themselves were provided by CIA.
Read it here "Ex-Chief of CIA Is Set to Respond to Sharp Rebuke"

Curious about victims of 'mistaken identity'?.  Just search "Khalid Al-Masri", whose crime was having the family name Al-Masri-same as the guy blamed for Bombing the Marriot in Jordan, AND the name of the guy running AQ Iraq, both  dead now. The EU did an extensive report on his kidnapping, year's torture and detention, followed by being dumped out of a car in Macedonia, (the Yugo one, not Greek). Both Bush and Merkel conspired to kill his legal case, first in the USA, then Germany, whose Prosecutor August Stern, was forced to drop the case against the CIA. Imagine your name was Jones, or Smith, two of the most common names in the USA, and a horrendous crime was perpetrated by someone with the same name? Nothing simple like McVeigh or Dalmer or Manson or Gacy.

Wreckage of a Air Algerie flight, emanating from Burkina Faso, may have been found by French Military Jets, in the Country of Mali.
Read the LATEST updates

Ukraine:  Malaysian Airlines reports its Plane was shot down, headed over Ukraine, supposedly by a Surface to Air Missile, 295 Dead. Read Reuters "These items were all turned over to the Separatists" said John Kerry on ABC's (USA) 'This Week'   "We tracked this imagery", he insisted, and know this "comports to a SA-11 Missile, because it hit a Aircraft at 33,000 feet"
. And now "drunken separatists" are loading bodies onto a truck", referring to the contaminated crime scene near Donetsk, Eastern Ukraine. Without saying what it was that brought down MH17, Putin said the "Tragedy could have been avoided" if Kiev had changed tactics.
After considerable pressure from the West & the U.N., rebel forces in Eastern Ukraine have allowed access to the crash site and turned over the Black Boxes (actually Red or Orange color) to international Investigators.

Israel & Gaza: Invasion by Arab-hater, Lieberman in 4th day, 600+ Palestinians (90% Civilian-149 Children) Dead, 21+ Israeli (90% Troops-2 reportedly, American)
. Kerry, caught off guard with an open mike said the Israeli actions, sarcastically, were examples of "pinpoint accuracy", as no doubt, the Israelis had assured him, and the World.   Four (4) dead bodies of little boys playing on the Gaza Beach (displayed on the cover of the NYT) belie such claims as mere Propaganda. Again, 'Jews in the Diaspora' are forced to defend "Collective Punishment" and "Disproportionate Response", (the first, a German 'National Socialist -Nazi-Era- tactic, the second harkens back to Genghis Khan). You couldn't make this stuff up. The NYT on Tuesday noted that 20 Israeli troops killed is 2x the total from the first two Gaza Incursions together, which portends a bloody battle, dwarfing the others, while Hamas invaded Israel, again through access tunnels from Gaza, the supposed Israeli target.

Israel: Reuven Rivlin assumes Presidency
ensuring that the Peace process & Negotiations are dead without Settler acquiescence, which means the process is Dead.

Egypt: Sexual Harassment equated to Rape as seven men are given18 years in Jail for stripping a Woman
in Tahrir Square, the day President Mohamed Morsi was deposed and El-Sisi seized power in a Bloody Coup. Trying to appease Western Powers & NGO's, after years of looking the other way, the pendulum  has swung to the opposite extreme

Abdel Fatah El-Sisi, in bold move, puts the screws to Egypt's struggling Middle-Class
with massive Fuel (Petrol & Diesel)price increases, by lowering subsidies. NYT quotes a Wael Gamal, described as a 'Journalist & Researcher' who quipped that the ruling coalition does not include the poor, but a coalition comprised. of "State bureaucracy, the military and the 'very aggressive part of the business community", (read 'Mubarak era sycophants' & Elite Class). The NY Times was quite amused that the usual street protest had not erupted, only passingly reminding readers that Protests without a permit were illegal and permits are not being issued, just jail terms for un-permitted events.

DEMOCRACY (The way WE define it) When do we demand it? NOW. And NOT Anonymously  :)



Mathias Döpfner, CEO of Germany's 'Alex Springer', giant Publishing House (200 publications), "calls out" Google's Eric Schmidt & Facebook's Zuckerberg for their Totalitarian assertions, reminiscent of East German Stasi, that "those with nothing to fear, have nothing to hide" (Weasels), and should have no concerns of online Spying by them or Microsoft, Yahoo, DropBox, Picassa et al. We Libertarian (little L, not the 'Paul Party') realists, know much better, simply put,  none of these firms can be trusted any longer-at all. Time to change Search Engines, eMail and Browsers and give these trolls there comeuppance! Read the Truth in the UK's Independent and ask yourself why it takes a German to tell brainwashed Americans the obvious, which their own Fathers' had fought  in Germany (called WWII) to protect & defend against EVER coming to American shores....Fascism.

Don Juan Comes Home from Iraq


World Premier "
Don Juan Comes Home from Iraq"
Wilma Theatre, Phila. PA. USA (March 19th-April 20th)


Darn that President Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter to you), going around, telling the truth, AGAIN!
[Andrea Mitchell Reports, Associated Press & David Letterman. We would expect Charlie Rose & PBS next?]

#1 Jimmy Says he and Barack don't talk because he was closed out of WH actions due to his realistic appraisal of Israel-Palestine Peace issues, (he speculates, we think, correctly) and the Israeli (USA) AIPAC lobby's financial power & influence (we added); and #2 The NSA? Jimmy says "we've gone too far" (Video link & below),  though Mitchell tried to justify the 'Surveillance Police State' (our term), with the usual -"after 9/11" canard and ruse.
He was not making an appearance to trash Obama or the NSA (both do fine by themselves). He was promoting his new Book about Violence Against Women & Female Genital Mutilation & Bondage and Slavery ("60,000 in the USA).

Read "A Call to Action" by Jimmy Carter. Simon & Schuster Online ($21.35 Hard Cover)
or Kindle ($12.74 eBook)

Last Monday Night Jokesters? David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Myers. David had Jimmy for a sit down, serious, no jokes, reality. Letterman said "I thought you were going to be funnier", breaking the silence, after Jimmy detailed how female mutilation takes place, leaving the audience gasping & shocked. Ah the burdensome TRUTH. ("Set you free" or give you nightmares?) 

Link to it here too. Pass around, copy, spread like fertilizer (YouTube)

Direct Italian Site: Radio Alitalia RAI5
(TV Schedule, on right side, 23rd March, says 'non-disponible', or not available)




The above posted video appears to have been deleted by CBS Legal, we assume, (reflexively & cynically), under direction from Keith Alexander, (America's Field Marshal Tantowi). The NSA is  so totally ferklempt over Jimmy telling the truth. In fact, they are so crazy over this release that they gave Bret Bier, Fox Fake News troll an exclusive (five minutes) with Alexander saying the NSA was not reading Jimmy's email, so he can return to sending (paraphrasing). Find the link yourself, we NEVER link to Fox Faux News.... Of course, Jimmy never said he thought they were reading HIS EMAIL, but all people. Last time we checked, Jimmy was 'people' too. He's our peeps for sure....

"Der NSA Komplex"
tm (German) $13.19 by Marcel Rosenbach. New version coming (with Holger Stark, both of 'Der Speigel') Ask yourself simply this, why do Americans have to speak or read German to get the truth about their own Surveillance State?   Because we are no longer a real "DEMOCRACY", big "D" or little "d". Read here from Deutche Welle (English)   Here's our own page on this matter & an 8-Minute Interview with Margaret Warner of Public Television (PBS USA) In English

More about James Earl ("Call me Jimmy") Carter, 41st President of these Unites States

Jimmy Fallon made a pathetic crack about "at least somebody is", after claiming that Jimmy said, (to AP or Mitchell) that
the NSA WAS reading his email. WRONG. He never said that. He merely restated what was already known by people who read the NYT or Guardian UK, the fact that the NSA is sweeping the ground, sky and oceans to steal copy written material called META DATA...Landline & Cell calls, email, logos, artwork, letters, Text, SMS, IM, Video Chat (YAHOO)... all things we told you for 14 years. Hmm. DEA illegally prosecuted people for 14 years using NSA pilfered info. Telling the "target", disclosing "exculpatory" facts, as required by a Court? NEVER. Until Snowden-THE HERO.

Seth Myers? How do you spell stupid? Of a Ex-President, rated #1 among X's...Bush, Clinton, Bush...Meyers said Jimmy had trouble "finding the 'SEND' button on his typewriter". We have serious qualms about the intelligence of, (and on) both Myers & Fallon, playing into NSA handlers' demands? Discredit the only President in 60 years NOT to have a WAR in 4-years of serving America. Both Fallon and Myers were BABIES in the 70's or even born?




Russia Today (TV) posted an "Op-Ed" which could have been written by Putin himself, (but actually by Robert Bridge, Former Editor Moscow News), in "NATO: Coming to Terms with America's Frankenstein Monster" summarizing grievances dating back to 1989 Fall of USSR. 'NATO lied about expansion', Star Wars ('unproven'), USA in Kosovo, Yugoslavia, (spelled Crimea) much of which is true.

Dianne Feinstein charges CIA with spying on their (CIA) computers on loan to Senate Intel Committee Staff reviewing Bush Era Torture at sites formerly USSR territory Prisons and Interrogation Centers. She lodged her attack on C-SPAN Live. See video below.

We told you about it 2 years ago when the Lithuanian Parliament issued a report from Vilnius of secret locations there. The denial that torture was used systematically as part of procedure is dispelled by testimony from freed Gitmo, Abu Gahraib and  Bahgram survivors

Eric Holder, Obama's Chief Prosecutor, has declined to weigh-in on either side, the NSA, which no doubt has dirt on Holder, like all others it Blackmails, nor the Senate Intel Committee, either..

Ukraine Update:  Former Presidential Candidates Dennis Kucinich & Ron Paul have similar takes on the under-handed efforts to offer solace, gain advantage and 'curry favour' with the Thugs who seized power in Kiev, hiding in plain site amongst the Democracy advocates.

We are left to ponder?  Is this about Ukraine in the Western Sphere (EU), or NATO on Russia's doorstep. More than one web site notes a comment from the leader of "Right Sector" (half the coalition), about getting rid of "Jews, Communists and Russians" from Ukraine.

And a Rabbi in Kiev was also quoted as saying genuine opposition was more about corruption and inertia than anti-Russian sentiment. Yanukovych fed his horses Caviar from the trough, it seems, as CNN and others show off his Mansions, tour guides from Ukraine's newly awakened citizens.  Kucinich : Columbus Dispatch & Russia Today (TV) Paul: U.S. News & World Report  Russia Today (RT) [Includes issue regarding RT 'Censorship' denied by Paul and Yackmeister Larry King].




Comment: NSA & GCHQ still resemble the best in Orwellian thinking as Snowden's Guardian UK disclosure tells us that millions of Yahoo Messenger images were stolen every five minutes during Video Chat (2008-2012) without warning, warrant or compensation. Government perverts noted the high propensity of people to engage in naked chats which Intel Eunuchs characterized as "Pornographic".

Looks like they forgot to note what "Quacks like a Duck"? But their overall knowledge of Supreme Court decisions ranks with Forest Gump's theories on boxes of Chocolate, none. Seems they truly disdain the same people they were hired to protect.

The question is not the rights of Fascists to denigrate what people choose to do with their webcam-Remote Medical Training or Online Sex-but the point at which people will become so bored by NSA & GCHQ excuses that they tear apart both institutions, as required to restore the Constitution to its preeminence, THE PEOPLE & THEIR RIGHTS over Corporate Thieves & Government Thugs. (Oh, we forgot, the Brits have no rights or Constitution-they are 'Slaves of the Queen'. Or is that "Subjects of the Sovereign"? Sounds so much more enlightened doesn't it?)

Their attempt to hide their trolling perversions under the cloak of defeating terrorism only shows how morally & ethically challenged they are-Brits, Americans, Aussies-all trashing their Citizens-Their 'Taxpayers' & undermining all "Rule of Law".

We were just 'Practicing Facial Recognition', and 'it was all legal' and 'images every five minutes' (as though they were not recording the whole conversation). Why? Not enough server space, not because they care about anyone's rights. Wrong?


The Ukraine, U.S. & Russian Folly?

Yulia Ukraine    Yanucovich Putin   Chuck Hagel


Secretary Chuck Hagel initiates a bold plan to revamp U.S. force posture after 40 years of endless, corporate-demand driven, (read "Defense Policy Board") irrational, illogical, unfunded, debt-funded War and buildup to War. Richard Perle (before Swine), architect of 'Endless Conflict Budgeting' ran the Policy Board, a "Club for Scoundrels" (all War Manufacturers), up to the start of the Invasion, Occupation, Sublimation and eventual Castration of Iraq. Even Hagel recently called the Pre-meditated, orchestrated attack on Iraq an "Invasion and Occupation". It was not a War, Iraq never attacked the USA, remember?

Some would prefer a new enemy, if not Iran, and confronting China now is too complicated, why not "Back to the USSR"? Out with the old, in with the old?  Putin's case is 'politically challenged', but he can only be foisted by his own petard. Read The Economist (UK) which lays the blame at Putin's door.

The current take on this fast-unraveling disaster in Ukraine? Simply stated, nothing survives in a vacuum without Oxygen, right?. As of this writing, deposed President Yanukovych is missing since Friday, with an arrest warrant hanging from Parliament. Yulia is out of Jail, paraded in a Wheelchair & both parties, unless convinced to implement the US/EU Accord for joint power-sharing, are more likely to devolve into chaos, even Civil War, or a 'New Federalism', which creates a de facto two-state solution-East aligned with Russia, West aligned with....well you get it.

This happened Sunday, as East Ukraine factions announced they were running things locally, and were not answering to dictates from Kiev. [Fair Disclosure-ITVN's author D.P. Lang, originates from Odessa, Ukraine, ancestors emigrating to the USA in 1904]

Taken in concert with Hagel's announcement Monday, look for Graham & McCain to accuse him of being Naive', claiming they will fight cuts 'with every fiber and breath'.... The Pit Bulls will emerge claiming Hagel is raising the White Flag, but against whom? Your guess.

The real loser will be US, French, British and Israeli, Canadian and Brazilian defense (War) contractors, who will lay off workers now, to emphasize the eventual downside of downsizing, War-based labor shrinks.

This tactic mirrors the Washington monuments' closing by Mr. Obama at first sign of a Government shutdown, to hurt tourists, which makes good politics for the Cameras, as they wait in line for a cancelled tour, after their long trip to DC, eliciting sympathy, not backlash.

Enigmatic Hamid Karzai, former US patsy, now reflexively combative, releases 65 prisoners at Baghram, renamed Parwan Detention Center. BBC & NY Times both characterize the State Dept.'s. response as a version of Powell's 'you break it you own it' reference to Iraq (still broken), where they asserted Karzai would rue the day he let these prisoners go. He claimed the USA should respect Afghanistan's "Justice System". and that, either way, Afghans were "Sovereign" and it was of "no concern" to the USA.

Robert Gates hits the "Talking Heads", (no, not the Rock Band) Circuit, promoting his new book, taking aim and blame at Obama for an atmosphere of disdain and distrust between the White House & the Pentagon. Coupled by an unrelated article about the Obama's religious habits, is there a case being built for the "their not like us" opposition? Read the NYT and WSJ versions. One article notes that Gates is the only DefSec who has worked for both Democratic & Republican Admins, as though that gives him "street cred" to criticize. As for Dems, "worked to undermine" may be a more apt description. than "worked for".

Iran & USA share a nexus in mutual opposition to AQ resurgence? So says the New York Times' Thomas Erdbrink on today's front page. We'd like to say only a "cold day in Hell" would bring the two enemies to the table, but with temperatures diving below zero in New York City- Hell for the Homeless-that statement remains prescient. John Kerry says Iran may prove useful in a negotiated settlement in Syria. Is this a thaw without logic or reason, or are Kerry & Obama geniuses? Iranian 'rope-a-dope' tactics are old and boring and as long as it is a religious theocracy, run by a dictatorial Mullah, trusting Iran's word ranks up with believing Israel's Netanyahu.....

Internet TV News was founded by Douglas Pepper Lang, December 21, 2000, one day after the United States Supreme Court intervened in the American elections between George W. Bush & Albert R. Gore, illegally, without Constitutional authority, deciding in favor of their Appointer & Benefactor's political party, The Republicans, and President's George H.W.
