America In The Crosshairs

  • Fred Phelps does not believe what he is doing. This is a scam.

    It’s a business. They travel the country, set up websites telling you exactly when they’ll be there, and using the most inflammatory statements all over the place, just to get someone to violate their rights for profit. Then they sue the military, the police force that was to protect them, and everyone that is around them for money. This is a sham, and it is a trap to get people sued. Every member of his family is an attorney. Phelps does not break the law. What he does is try to make you break the law by trying to punch your sensibilities about everything you hold dear, and then sue you and everyone municipality around him to the max.

    This is a scam.

  • On December 17, Forum Novelties filed a lawsuit against the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, which owns the rights to Albert Einstein’s image and reportedly earned about $10 million last year in licensing revenue. Forum seeks a declaratory judgment that it can sell an Einstein disguise kit without violating the publicity rights now owned by Hebrew University.
  • ITEM: In West Hollywood, members of a group called the Germs try to redeem a slow evening at the Whisky by smearing themselves with peanut butter.

    ITEM: In Boston, the lead singer of the Dead Boys takes a swan dive to the stage floor of a joint called The Rat. He wears a leather jacket and a T shirt decorated with swastikas. He begins to stroke the torn crotch of his jeans with a vibrator. He shrieks, “This is what love is!”

    ITEM: In New York, the up-and-coming Ramones decide to turn away from negative songs like I Don’t Wanna Go Down to the Basement in favor of the upbeat Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue.

  • You might remember Martin Luther King, Jr. as someone who railed against the triple evils of “racism, materialism, and militarism.” But according to Obama’s Department of Defense, “today’s wars are not out of line with the iconic Nobel Peace Prize winner’s teachings.”

    This contention is advanced in an article by the American Forces Press Service, which the Pentagon is distributing for republication. CommonDreams did republish it—as an example of government shamelessness, correctly noting that you “can’t make this stuff up.”

    The article concerns a speech by the Defense Department’s general counsel, Jeh C. Johnson, who stated, “I believe that if Dr. King were alive today, he would recognize that we live in a complicated world, and that our nation’s military should not and cannot lay down its arms and leave the American people vulnerable to terrorist attack.”

  • Oi! Oi! Oi!
  • So on March 17, 2009, Love took to her Twitter account and began hurling a stream of shocking insults at the designer known as the “Boudoir Queen.” Love’s tweets, which instantly landed in the Twitter feeds of her 40,000 or so followers (and countless others via retweets), announced that Simorangkir was a drug-pushing prostitute with a history of assault and battery who lost custody of her own child and capitalized on Love’s fame before stealing from her. “She has received a VAST amount of money from me over 40,000 dollars and I do not make people famous and get raped TOO!” Love wrote.

    That tirade, along with others the Hole frontwoman unleashed on social media platforms including MySpace and Etsy.com during the next four days, form the basis of a unique lawsuit headed to court in January: the first high-profile defamation trial over a celebrity’s comments on Twitter.

  • The kidnapping of children for purposes of prostitution, pornography, high tech weaponry experimental abuse, mind control abuse, child slave labor for underground alien-controlled facilities, white sex slavery, and the satanic ritual murder of untold thousands of American children snatched from the streets and playgrounds of America by agents working for the CIA is the principle reason for the existence of a covert CIA operation called “The Finders”.
  • In the course of some civil insurrections, like Iran and Burma, Washington has strongly condemned the regime and provided strong words of encouragement for the pro-democracy activists challenging their repression. In a couple of cases, like Serbia and Ukraine, the United States and other Western countries even provided limited amounts of economic assistance to pro-democracy groups. Most of the time, however, particularly if the dictatorship is a U.S. ally like Tunisia, Washington has either backed the government or largely remained silent.

    Indeed, rather than praise Tunisia’s largely nonviolent pro-democracy movement and condemn its repressive regime, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has instead expressed her concern over the impact of the “unrest and instability” on the “very positive aspects of our relationship with Tunisia,” insisting that the U.S. is “not taking sides” and that she will “wait and see” before even communicating directly with Ben Ali or his ministers.

  • Samsung just received confirmation for a patent that describes an unmanned automatic shooting mechanism that is designed to support and replace security forces in locations such as airports, harbors, and nuclear power plants.

    Samsung fuels the 2011 IT patent frenzy with 151 patents granted in the second week of the year. One of them was particularly interesting and somewhat reminiscent of the automated “enforcement droid” in the 1990 movie RoboCop 2.

  • We’ve all been there at one time or another. Sometimes moneys short, sometimes you’re having a string of bad luck. Junkie life sometimes calls for you to put all your cards on the table. Even the cards that you “swore you’d never use”. It’s hard out there, and isn’t getting any easier. So my question is, What is the most desperate things you’ve done to get your fix?
  • The United States just passed a dubious milestone: Government debt surged to an all-time high, topping $14 trillion – $45,300 for each and everyone in the country.
  • Home prices fell for the 53rd straight month in November, taking the decline past that of the Great Depression for the first time in the prolonged housing slump, according to Zillow.com.

    Prices have fallen 26 percent since their peak in 2006, exceeding the 25.9 percent drop registered in the five years between 1928 and 1933, the housing data company reports.

    The word comes on the heels of figures showing banks repossessed more than one million homes in the U.S. last year — and they’re expected to take back even more this year.

  • The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) recently published a study in the journal PLoS One highlighting the worst prescription drug offenders that cause patients to become violent. Among the top-ten most dangerous are the antidepressants Pristiq (desvenlafaxine), Paxil (paroxetine) and Prozac (fluoxetine).

    Concerns about the extreme negative side effects of many popular antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs have been on the rise, as these drugs not only cause severe health problems to users, but also pose a significant threat to society. The ISMP report indicates that, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Adverse Event Reporting System, many popular drugs are linked even to homicides.

    Most of the drugs in the top ten most dangerous are antidepressants, but also included are an insomnia medication, an attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) drug, a malaria drug and an anti-smoking medication.

  • Somehow not perceiving the significant difference between a legitimate “extremist” prone to real “politically motivated” violence aimed at achieving a usually stubborn agenda and a troubled young man who has simply gone insane and embraced evil deeds as a sick outlet for his frustrations with the world and themselves, much time is being wasted by all sorts of media contributors on painting a picture Jared Loughner as a perpetrator of “political violence” and “domestic extremism”. Though the earliest reports coming out of Tucson may have had an excuse to be deceived by this now widely accepted illusion of Loughner as an extremist by definition, thorough scruples should have discovered that Loughner was a human of compromised sanity and morality, and furthermore, that the maximum role his “anti-government” and “conspiracy-minded” disposition played in the attack served but to point his madness in the direction of a single victim in close proximity to him.
  • Male pandas have notoriously low sex drives, and pandas are extremely picky when choosing mates. This makes it very difficult when trying to encourage pandas to reproduce in captivity. This is really bad for the survival of their species, especially since there are only 1600 pandas in the wild, and an additional 294 in captivity. So how can we save the pandas? Panda Porn!
  • It sounds like something from a science fiction movie.

    Creepy as the concept might be, someone actually built an Internet-controlled network of Web cameras and shotguns aimed into a food plot on a Georgia Power Co. right-of-way last fall.

    A utility contractor encountered the setup, snapped a few photos and reported the odd apparatus to the Georgia Wildlife Resources Division, which in turn notified the U.S. Office of Homeland Security.

    By the time officers arrived at the south Georgia site, however, the equipment had been removed.

    According to a Nov. 19 bulletin from the Georgia Information Sharing & Analysis Center, “three shotguns were set up on a platform and linked to a Web-accessible camera system that allows the guns to be fired via an Internet connection.”

  • Gaddafi warned Tunisians against being tricked by ‘WikiLeaks which publishes information written by lying ambassadors in order to create chaos.’
  • The title given to this video by the uploader on Tudou was: “一众美女打群架的场面多么给力啊” which most people will read as “What an awesome group fight scene between a crowd of pretty girls“. As a result, many of the Chinese netizen comments left on this video by Tudou viewers complained about how these women could be called “pretty” or “beautiful” as represented in the title, even accusing the uploader of intentionally using a deceptive title. Some of these comments were translated below. However, the title could also be read as: “What an awesome group fight scene between a crowd of American girls“.
  • Under questioning by police after the boy died at a Denver-area hospital last September, Johnson admitted she placed the baby in the bathtub and went into another room to play the Facebook game Cafe World.

    She also checked in with friends and watched videos on the site while the boy bathed alone, according to an affidavit filed in the case.

    When she didn’t hear any sounds from the boy after 10 minutes, she found him slumped over face down in the bathwater making “gurgling” sounds, according to the affidavit.

  • The photos, presumably shot in a mirror, show Loughner, 22, posing with the same make of gun he allegedly used in the Jan. 8 shooting. In the photos he holds the pistol against his crotch and buttocks while wearing a bright red thong, sources told ABC News.
  • A Green Bay, Wis., woman opened a Christmas present from her children to find a refurbished vacuum — and a load of drugs.

    Authorities say the woman found 2 pounds of crystal methamphetamine and 2.2 pounds of cocaine shrink wrapped inside the box. Sheriff’s officials estimate the drugs’ street value at about $280,000.

  • The offshore bank account details of 2,000 “high net worth individuals” and corporations – detailing massive potential tax evasion – will be handed over to the WikiLeaks organisation in London tomorrow by the most important and boldest whistleblower in Swiss banking history, Rudolf Elmer, two days before he goes on trial in his native Switzerland.

    British and American individuals and companies are among the offshore clients whose details will be contained on CDs presented to WikiLeaks at the Frontline Club in London. Those involved include, Elmer tells the Observer, “approximately 40 politicians”.

  • The Pink Panther has a band here called the Pink Punks, and they get to play a few of their songs here. (I also find it interesting that two of the group members are named Itchy and Scratchy.) For some reason, the Pink Panther sounds like an old hippie.
  • “If those kids went to school with those drugs inside that bag, it could have gotten out and we’d be talking about a situation that would be much worse. This shows that people will go through grave extremes to avoid being arrested.”
    Thanks Patrick Nybakken
  • The newspaper reports Sanden told police he was having sex with the 48-year-old woman whom he had known for a few months when he realized she wasn’t breathing. He told police he administered CPR and called an ambulance.

    The woman’s cause of death remains under investigation.

  • Police said he was bent over and defecating.

    According to arrest records, the officer also saw Wilkerson’s genitals.

    Police said Wilkerson had bloodshot eyes, was unsteady on his feet and smelled strongly of beer.

    Police said Wilkerson admitted he had been drinking. When asked how much, he said, “Enough, cracker,” according to arrest records.

  • A man who claims a rodent bit him on the penis while he was being held in a New York jail can proceed with a federal civil rights lawsuit claiming county officials should have had better pest control, a judge has ruled.

    Peter Solomon claims in his lawsuit against Nassau County that a rodent came out of a hole in his mattress and bit him while he was jailed in February 2007 on a charge of menacing his wife. He’s a Vietnam veteran who says he was already suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome.

  • A 48-year-old Rockdale man who allegedly tried using pornographic magazines instead of candy or flowers to meet women has been charged with felony stalking/causing personal distress.
  • Thanks Smart Crew
  • Notably — at least for this enthusiast of Jamaican culture bubbling through the American mainstream — to help stage Lil Wayne’s big comeback, producer Bangladesh contributed another a-milli-esque banger, in this case opting to deliciously substitute (ripe banana!) Harry Belafonte’s well-worn Jamaicanisms for Phife Dog’s more obscure ragga filigree
  • Keeping Mullen’s “belt-tightening” image in mind, what you have here, imagistically speaking, is an especially obese man cutting down on his own future expectations for how much he’s planning to overeat, even as he continues to increase what he’s actually eating. In other words, this is actually a belt-loosening operation. (And by the way, the Secretary of Defense knows perfectly well that some of his “cuts,” announced with such flare, will never make it through a Congress where powerful Republicans, among others, prefer to exempt the national security budget from serious cuts, or any cuts at all.)

Blood Will Flow Like Water

  • In the Sixties, a groundbreaking series of experiments found that 65 per cent of us would kill if ordered to do so.
  • Last August, U.S. Navy operators on the ground lost all contact with a Fire Scout helicopter flying over Maryland. They had programmed the unmanned aerial vehicle to return to its launch point if ground communications failed, but instead the machine took off on a north-by-northwest route toward the nation’s capital. Over the next 30 minutes, military officials alerted the Federal Aviation Administration and North American Aerospace Defense Command and readied F-16 fighters to intercept the pilotless craft. Finally, with the Fire Scout just miles shy of the White House, the Navy regained control and commanded it to come home. “Renegade Unmanned Drone Wandered Skies Near Nation’s Capital,” warned one news headline in the following days. “UAV Resists Its Human Oppressors, Joyrides over Washington, D.C.,” declared another.
  • The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has received numerous reports from consumers who received an e-mail that has the appearance of being sent from the FDIC. The e-mail informs the recipient that “in cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security, federal, state and local governments…” the FDIC has withdrawn deposit insurance from the recipient’s account “due to account activity that violates the Patriot Act.” It further states deposit insurance will remain suspended until identity and account information can be verified using a system called “IDVerify.” If consumers go to the link provided in the e-mail, it is suspected they will be asked for personal or confidential information, or malicious software may be loaded onto the recipient’s computer.
  • A Nobel Prize winning biologist has ignited controversy after publishing details of an experiment in which a fragment of DNA appeared to ‘teleport’ or imprint itself between test tubes.According to a team headed by Luc Montagnier, previously known for his work on HIV and AIDS, two test tubes, one of which contained a tiny piece of bacterial DNA, the other pure water, were surrounded by a weak electromagnetic field of 7Hz.

    Eighteen hours later, after DNA amplification using a polymerase chain reaction, as if by magic the DNA was detectable in the test tube containing pure water.

  • John Boehner is the ultimate Beltway hack, a man whose unmatched and self-serving skill at political survival has made him, after two decades in Washington, the hairy blue mold on the American congressional sandwich. The biographer who somewhere down the line tackles the question of Boehner’s legacy will do well to simply throw out any references to party affiliation, because the thing that has made Boehner who he is — the thing that has finally lifted him to the apex of legislative power in America — has almost nothing to do with his being a Republican.
  • But Banksy keeping noticeably quiet in the feud yet targeting what had been the oldest piece in London seemed like a rookie mistake, a publicity stunt gone wrong as it was greeted with scorn from the graffiti world and a bevvy of new fans in the media for Robbo. “If anything it backfired and showed just how little respect he has within our community. It also gave me the opportunity to shine a light on graffiti, to show that writers aren’t just spotty teenagers that draw on bus-stops, we can be witty and funny in a way Banksy can’t, because he’s not radical he’s just a toy with a PR team.”
  • A New Jersey lawmaker has withdrawn a hastily introduced bill to require all bicycles in the state to display a license plate.Assemblywoman Cleopatra Tucker was getting deep criticism for her proposed law that would have required riders or their parents would pay $10 a year to register their bikes with the Division of Motor Vehicles – or be subject to fines of $100.

  • Masood Ahmed, graffiti artist turned graphic designer, gave a lecture on the History of Graffiti, and its influence on his work as a graphic designer. He spoke of the natural progression from graffiti into graphic design, pointing out that graffiti is manipulation of letter-forms, and in graphic design, we call that typography.
  • Holy Shit!
  • Chicken Fat is a feature length documentary about the legacy of MAD Magazine’s seminal artist Will Elder. It is on it’s way to being completed in 2011. We already have interviewed an impressive array of artists, writers, publishers and pop-culture experts which you can see by visiting www.ChickenFat.tv . Your donations will be used to complete our production interviews with Playboy founder, Hugh Hefner; American author, screenwriter and artist, Daniel Clowes; Film Director, Joe Dante and William Stout, one of the few artists who worked with Will on Playboy’s Little Annie Fanny. To date this project has been funded using a generous grant from the Laurie Foundation and my own hard-earned cash! Once these interviews are complete we hit the edit room and plan to have a completed documentary by year’s end. Any donation, no matter how small, is very much appreciated!
  • There are two angles of approach that I will be taking here, the first of which involves the information that we know about Loughner–from news reports and from Loughner’s online trail–that seem to fit the profile for a mind-controlled MKULTRA assassin. Another angle of approach involves an examination of the potential fallout of this tragedy, which will frame my speculation regarding a possible motive or motives. After discussing these two aspects, I will pose some important questions that will undoubtably require independent investigation of dedicated truth-seekers like you and me.
  • In November, an inventor introduced a line of men’s and women’s underwear that is equipped with powdered metal inserts that block a variety of scanning technology, but don’t set off metal detectors. The gear’s Web site said the company’s “emphasis is on protecting the traveling public, airline, medical, and security professionals from radiation generated by backscatter, x-ray and mm-wave imaging equipment.”“Sensitive tissues not of interest to imaging procedure will be protected and obscured, avoids potential child pornography and stored image medical issues (HIPPA compliance),” said the site.

    TSA is not unfamiliar with commercial efforts to block screening. The agency went through similar warnings about products designed to block imaging of baggage sent through X-ray screening a few years ago, when an artist designed metal plates with explicit messages that could be placed inside baggage to taunt screeners.
