Guerilla Cyber War

I have watched 4chan work in real time on open source insurgency operations. They are impressive. But all sides have become good at these operations now.

A signature tactic in the new conflict, honed on sites like 4chan and 8chan, is forensic analysis of digital imagery and geospatial data—fields specialized enough to have their own acronyms, IMINT and GEOINT, in military jargon.

Here’s an excellent article from Vice by Jacob Siegel about this new warfare frontier.

#TrumpTaxReturns

Trump and his GOPer toads are gearing up to give corporate vampires and rich zombies another tax cut.

While Texas drowns, Trump talks tax cuts for the rich

Dems hammer Trump for ‘trickle down’ tax plan

Seems like a great time for Trump to release those tax returns. #TrumpTaxReturns

Here’s an idea we should be pushing instead of another wealth transfer to the rich and corporate elite:

Study: a universal basic income would grow the economy

Desperate Improvisation Is Probably Not Good Crisis Policy

We have this running argument. The Right says that we have to have constant economic growth even if it’s at the expense of environmental health. They say: ‘The oil pipeline will create jobs’; ‘Mountain top removal mining will create jobs and make the worker’s lives better’; ‘Taking away protected status from public lands and letting them be exploited by logging companies and mining corporations will be good for the working people’.

It’s a lie. The corporations will get more profit. A few people will add a couple more zeros to their net wealth, but the working people and middle class? No, Their going to get screwed, hard, again. The environmental degradation that follows the endless money grab game will hit them hardest, and they will be the least able to afford to escape. Again and again and again this tedious, bankrupt argument is foisted on us. And again and again and again the oil spills, the ground water is poisoned or the city floods and the poor are left crushed and desperate. All that money from the ‘economic activity’? Oh, that’s all gone. Long gone. It ran off with some rich white guys, probably. There were no serious general public investments made. The working class is living hand to mouth and that hasn’t changed. The government the Right loves to rail against is left trying to re-build after whatever new environmental catastrophe has happened. They’ll have to tighten the screws on the poor and middle class some more to pay for the re-build or repair. So much for the economic prosperity of exploitation.

Truth Is The Breakfast Of Champions

I’m sounding more like a prophet of doom everyday. But I’m not alone and I have to call them the way I see them. Civil destabilization, violence, war, environmental or economic collapse– they’re all running neck and neck at the moment, as best I can figure, but it sure looks like one of those is coming at us sooner rather than later.

I’m just going to keep cataloguing the ‘signs and wonders’, as I’m able at this surreal pace, but also offer what ever upside I can. That’s what’s happening going forward here.

Destabilized America Roundup

Here’s an excellent piece on insane billionaire Robert Mercer and his ties to the Russians. What do the Russians want out of this attack of theirs? Destabilization. Period. Mercer wants the same thing for different reasons but that is the goal of all the major players in this horror movie.

Politics Of Greed

The increasing power of the fictional “corporate persons” are actively aiding the cause.

Destabilization Is The Goal Of ‘The Bannon Wing’

He came up with his con at college. The con was that he, Steve Bannon, was a genius political thinker.

But cons always have a hidden agenda: they want your money, your power– Or, better yet: everything you have and are. Con’s, really, are looking for pieces of your soul. Weak spots in your spirit. The ambitious types want the whole thing. That’s the pot of gold. You believe that they really are the super genius, prophet, they sold you, if you believe that, they got it. All cons want you to believe that at some level. That’s the golden gold, the Con’s American Dream.

Nope, You’re Not Going Crazy– This is All Completely Insane

I’ve noticed, since this nightmare began seven or eight months ago, that strong, intelligent people who I have great respect for are, periodically, breaking down. I’ve seen it. If that sort of thing is happening to you– don’t panic. You’re not alone. In fact, at this point it seems to be a sign of sanity, decency and humanity. I’d be more worried if we weren’t having periodic emotional collapses. But we’ve got to keep it together. Double Down Don and his GOP toads are not going to go gently into that good night.

Reichstag Fire Countdown…

The scapegoating of brown, black, muslim, and LGBT people– we’re pretty far down that path.

Yesterday when CNN’s Acosta asked Trump about the violence in Charlottesville, Trump called him “fake news” and walked out. The ‘fake news’ campaign to undermine the press has been going on for a long time but it looks like it’s reaching a new, more brazen level.

Trump to CNN’s Jim Acosta: You’re fake news

So, attacking the ‘fake news’ or ‘lying press’, lugenpresse as they used to say in Germany– yep, we’re pretty far along on that one.

You Really Want To Fight Nazis?

It’s true, we’ve got proud, swastika toting nazis marching down American streets right now. Let’s be honest, though, these guys found their voice and courage to come out into the light as a reaction to our first African-American president. It seems like a lot of the Republican’s gains were due to white reaction to the changing demographics of America. They are extremely dangerous and violent, and in all likelihood will become more so, especially if Trump is removed from office.
