    It’s the same article but and only the top one is in my flickr account & with the pictures inserted where the references are as well as just stand alone at the bottom if you want to scroll down & just scan the pics. I especially like the view of ground zero with the new WTC7 that went back up almost as fast as it fell and the ”damage” at the Pentagon from a theoretical hit by one craft compared to 3 WTC towers pulverized by 2 identical planes! :~)

    More than a decade after the 9/11 events unfolded live on on televisions around the world there’s a divided reality about what happened that day and what was gained and lost in the time since then.

    The Internet was in its infancy and media broadcasting was held in few large corporate hands; we individuals had very little power to capture and share information the way we do now.

    What we know is the day marks a turning point in American power, but the turning point divides our realities.

    In my eyes we witnessed a total failure of the most enormously funded military power on the planet.

    Hijackings which had been a common threat throughout the 1970’s made a return and hijacked commercial flights over an hour off course flew into two NYC icons as the world watched. It did very clearly mark a new divide between what I knew to be true and what the media asked or reported.

    As the child of a WWII aviator, commercial pilot and lifetime flyer of small planes I knew first hand how the air traffic controllers register flight plans, monitor terminal control areas and track aircraft especially in the busy areas along the northeast corridor.

    The ravages to the FAA controller ranks from the union busting victory by the Reagan Administration was common knowledge among those in the industry, but even that doesn’t explain how none of this was noted as we watched the commercial flights strike the Twin Towers.

    Unchallenged and undeterred by any military, undeclared as a potential problem by the FAA it was a clear breakdown in communication.

    It was beyond belief that a Nation that spent more than the rest of the world combined could witness the event and then have the heart of US military leadership housed at the Pentagon theoretically unable to track or defend against a commercial aircraft intent on delivering a similar blow.

    It’s unclear to me whether the Pentagon event was actually an aircraft because there are anomalies in the story and the studies that have followed. There was no video to show the actual event, which raises suspicions or at least creates room for questions. What we have is a hole that appears rather small for the plane and none of the markings on the ground or debris scattered as crashes typically have.

    It also begs the question of how the impact of two identical aircraft can effectively spur the spontaneous collapse of WTC 1-2 and yes WTC7 while leaving remarkably little damage at the Pentagon.

    But it’s not specifically relevant to the narrative here as much as the idea of what questions are missing and what is offered as both the problem and solution. At every turn the answer is more government power and we have no one questioning who exactly does what under the guise of government nor what actions any of these institutions have done to deserve the powers tied to current responsibility much less greater freedom to claim they have performed basic service to the public and success earns the right to request greater powers.

    Americans had seen a small plane fly into the White House by a drunk and disturbed individual who took to the air on September 11, 1994 and finally landed on the White House lawn. There was a National discussion of security around it in the headlines of every print media and television report. How is it possible that the insatiable spending in the name of America’s Defense Department has totally ignored the most basic protections for the heart of our government?

    What we should understand from Frank Corder, like Sandy Hook shootings and even 9/11 is that we can not always protect against an off balance individual with nefarious aims so we need to create ways to insulate the most vulnerable targets and create tools to respond.

    Years after the Twin Towers were hit we saw a small plane crash into a residential building here in NYC. What it showed was that no steps had been taken to treat the source of the problem of strikes by small aircraft, instead we had implemented a vast system of bureaucracy that did more to curb civil liberties than to limit the problem of unfettered access to the air space above Manhattan.

    Because it was a pitcher for the Mets the world assumes it was an accident, but the fact remains that anyone who wanted to load up with explosives could still fly freely above NYC and inflict a fatal blow to many of us living and working here.

    The security put in place after 9/11 did absolutely nothing to deter an identical event from happening as it did with the White House in 1994 or 2001 or 2006 or now in 2013. What has been done in the name of security is to expand the vast covert power of a contractor run government and strip away the liberties we Americans have held as the key to what makes us unique and a model for free society.

    Talk is cheap and actions speak louder than words. What we heard as the official narrative from government was be afraid of terrorism, but not so afraid you stop feeding the travel and consumer goods economy only afraid enough to give government greater power to operate in secret and outside the laws put in place to protect individual rights.

    An Orwellian bit of legislation named the Patriot Act was swiftly put forward to codify a covert expansion of powers. It is easy to be critical of Congress who have much to be faulted for in the slide into a police state we have now with Executive drone killings that take the Patriot Act and expand it to dictatorial or Imperial powers not seen for over 700 years.

    But forgotten in the move to enact the legislation is how the Senators who objected were victims of anthrax threats. It was military grade, weaponized variety and not available to many in the world. It is added to the unsolved mysteries and unasked questions that mark the path from a transparent system of government where elected officials serve the public rather than control both our fate and our right to accountability and oversight.

    To date the details of the anthrax investigation are largely classified and publicly available evidence suggests the anthrax source is US Military. Staff at the White House had been on a regime of CIPRO, the antidote for anthrax exposure since the 9/11 attacks but efforts to get details of that are unanswered. 2

    Why is threatening the life of Members of Congress and public use of weapons like anthrax not given the scope of investigation we have seen for Wikileaks? Who stood to benefit from the passage of the Patriot Act if indeed it was a tool to aid in hunting terrorists, what terrorist would want to help arm the hunters? What does it say about who America’s enemies are and who benefits when fear is selectively employed to move us to a more secret state with KGB style domestic spying while those who have the access to all the relevant classified information are shown to be little more than liars who feed a Military Industrial Complex?

    Why is Bradley Manning tortured and jailed now for 1000 days without trial for exposing war crimes as torturers and Banksters go free? Why is hacktivist Jeremy Hammond held without bail for liberating emails that show a US government intelligence contractor is spying on activists as the criminal contractor continues to be funded with taxpayer dollars?

    We have seen attacks of 9/11 parlayed into a War on Terror and fear used to launch a war on an entirely unrelated Nation of Iraq. We have seen torture and CIA black hole prisons from Gitmo to places around the globe and war crimes go uncharged or unpunished. We have witnessed the looting of our economy by casino like banks that are also funding terrorism and laundering drug money with impunity.

    What changed with 9/11 was the bold move of the criminal covert powers, past Presidents had warned Americans to beware of now controlling the propaganda to advance their aims, but with a growing power of the people to connect with one another and challenge that.

    We the people are a force in our own right now with social media and Internet access and digital images that can go from a phone to the far corners of the globe in a matter of seconds. The old guard of propaganda folled corporate media might have been able to squeak by with selling 9/11 as a license to usurp power under claims of security for some of the people, but not all.

    Those who question have grown as the abuses of a corrupt regime have become harder to hide. It’s the ultimate joke to imagine that these elite desk jockeys think a black man in the White House is enough of a veneer of liberal Patriotic inclusiveness to make us swallow the draconanian reality of his Executive Orders granting Internet censorship of CISPA and military arrests without charges or council undr NDAA 1021.

    Every day the numbers who see the Star Spangled Propaganda working to bring death to the America we love and they have made some progress, but ain’t gonna happen on our watch. In the end the truth is incontrovertible and the tables are already starting to turn.

    We know the tipping point has been reached to air details of the Iraq War lies and crimes that have been public knowledge in the web world for many years. The move to truth is nothing more than a corporate appetite for viewers and the revenue it draws and the appetite for les is exhausted so the truth will follow us as far as we push it.

    Hat’s off, kudos and thanks to every person who has blogged and protested and made efforts to spread the truth for these many years, we wouldn’t have gotten here without each and every voice so take heart but don’t stop we have miles to go but the uphill trek is about done. 3

    An occasional holiday tradition to me with apologies to Clement Moore and his cultural icon…

    Twas the Sandy Hook Christmas and all through the House
    not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse

    The Fiscal Cliff legislation was left up in the air
    In hopes that some miracle soon would be there

    The lobbyists were nestled all snug in their beds
    While visions of contracts danced in their heads.

    And media in corporate pockets and lies with no cap
    Had just set a new low in a decade plus nap

    When out on the Internet there arose such a clatter
    I sprang to my keyboard to see what was the matter

    From window to window I flew like a flash
    Tore into the news feeds and read pastebin stash

    The light on the crest of what we weren’t to know
    Gave a luster of a new day to the political show

    When what to my wondering eyes should appear
    But a virtual revolution and legions not living in fear

    With a little, old notion so lively and quick
    I knew in a moment this freedom force would stick

    More rapid than eagles their causes they came
    And NDAA legislation gave them all a terrorist name

    Now Occupy, Now Arab Spring, Now Green Revolution!
    On Hammond, On Manning, On Assange and On journalism!

    To the top of prosecution lists, to go to the wall
    Now subvert, now silence, now lock away all!!

    As dry leaves before the wild hurricane fly,
    When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky

    So up to the higher stakes the causes they flew
    With a belly full of corruption and whole new world view

    And then in a twinkling we heard the aloof
    Legalize extra judicial killing without burden of proof

    And as I shook my head at the torched Constitutional ground
    Down the information superhighway individual opposition abounds

    They were dressed in all costumes, cultures and faiths head to foot
    And the clothes were immaterial to the ideas for which they stood

    A bundle of rights were at stake, people wanted them back
    And no ALEC styled peddlers were waiving them without flack.

    Bankster eyes– how they twinkled, their dimples– how merry!
    Bailouts, plus mortgage fraud and money laundering immunity!

    Outsourced intelligence networks were tied up with a bow
    Trillions in taxpayer dollars to do jobs we have no right to know.

    The stump of the Fourth Estate was held tight in Wall Street teeth
    And their propaganda encircled the establishment like a wreath.

    Media packaged the broad agenda, wrapped the papers and ran the telly
    That shook with their terror threat spin, like a bowl full of jelly.

    News was chubby and plump, PNAC a right jolly old elf.
    And I laughed when I saw it in spite of myself.

    A blink of my eye and a turn of my head
    Soon gave me to know how to act not to dread

    We start where we stand and get straight to work
    And fill governments with transparency, return da jerks

    And lay off my privacy, shove yer fingers and nose
    Data miners to dictators makes no difference, mine to say no.

    We sprang corruption to consciousness, to collectivism a whistle
    Away gmo seeding revenue like the down of a thistle.

    But I heard legions exclaim as covert cabals made off with our rights
    Merry Luck to all and to all an honest fight!

    ps…whatever you celebrate or love, whatever floats yer boat, be safe, be kind, enjoy! :~)

    So I don’t forget once I start writing that link goes back to our earlier exchange so confused where you wanted to point me? No worries my muckraking trails go better than my cyber travels so it’s all good :~)

    Nice analogy between WalMart and Monsanto as sector monopolies that destroy smaller sustainable tradition. In the case of gmo they reproduce on their own and there is no reversal possible and the DNA is passed on to wild or native forms and traditional crops so that every seed for the rest of eternity should have a fee to go with it.

    If you’re thinking in terms of leagal remedies or strategies with Monsanto there are a few key point that are little known that may help. The patents granted initially that gave them ownership are fundamentally flawed in several ways.

    First it is based on the theory that one gene = one protein which is just a mistake from the primitive state of science then but it is a condition of the patent that’s not kept. Next is that the gene inserted must be able to be removed, the process like an industrial engineering model, put it your one protein and take it out, again impossible and part of the patent and never been challenged. There’s also a theory of mine that goes with the status of corporations as persons and their money equal to their speech and in very concrete terms these persons have DNA that belongs to them which is put into us against our will which is rape in any other case of persons forcing DNA on someone, even if the victim is unaware they have been violated. Food for thought and a point that makes the biotech trolls insane trying to argue ownership rights lol!

    It’s a tough road for legitimate battles in court like Eliot Spitzer or others who try the dirty smear machines crank up and worst case some mysterious small plane falls from the sky and the tarp covered truck takes the wreckage faster than a dog can make off with a steak, but every battle is worth fighting & happy to supply any ammo from my stockpile to help :~)

    My goodness, if you had said you’re looking for gmo talking point could have gotten you set from the start! Don’t know how many have been tracking as closely and as long and all in my circle of friends :~) got stuff going back to 2006 with tales of Monsanto hunting me until I proved more trouble for them than satisfaction for their trolls who all block me on Twitter lol.

    Tell me whatcha want ammo wise, got it all! A good starter is the firs FDA notice Monsanto ever submitted for Roundup Ready soy. Says clearly it’s all based on what Monsanto bekieves and contrary to their PR about testing and approval there is none. Truth is in FDA documents all based on noting more than what Monsanto reported for a few short term animal studies we don’t get to see and ”substantial equivalent” nutrient ranges, what a crock!

    The idea of Nationalizing scares the tar out of me the whole government is so corrupted with industry influence everything they touch is contaminated. If we had a free market and not Congressional help making this mess it never could have begun.

    My belief is that we need to keep working toward more self sustaining local farming efforts and swear off the idea of mass production and global distribution as a way to feed the planet. Here in NYC we have had an explosion in green markets and rooftop growing and other networking options to connect consumers and farmers without Wall Street hands in the middle.

    All we really need to stop gmo dead in its tracks is consumer awareness as in a bit of public discussion that starts with the MSM censorship lifted and labels so the 90% of consumers who oppose the idea can vote with their dollars. Also an end to USDA subsidies that are supporting all the gmo crops and very little else and we’re good to go.

    The gmo market has been built on covert and deceptive practices with hijacked funding, take those away they’re done!

    If it makes you feel any better the 1% are getting their fair share of gmo since it’s in all the restaurants, even the 5 star chefs have no flipping clue how their olive oil blend is cut with gmo canola or their meats are raised on gmo feed. Most processed and packaged foods have some levels and you need to be a virtual expert to avoid it unless you cook from scratch or know your farmer,

    The gmo isn’t cheaper it’s just nearly all US corn, soy, canola and cotton which is a small amount of the global food supply and in almost all our processed and packaged foods. In fact what I see here is many of the ethnic communities with better diets simply from being more oriented to cooking with traditional items and imports from native countries who ban or restrict gmo.

    In US local harvest is a good way to find or start a CSA and connect with local growers and family farms.

    America’s Election ~ Who Really Won What?

    Do we really stand for liberty and what stands between the public and freedom?

    It’s no secret that both political parties share my disdain for their irresponsible and reckless spending, endless war mongering and caviler attitude toward trading our individual rights and civil liberties for corporate benefits.

    They are helped in the effort by a corporate media that is no longer bound to truthful reporting nor limited by secret financing of elections.

    With Romney and Obama as the two choices yesterday there was no candidate that represents me or accurately reflects what their speeches capture as core American values.

    Of course there were differences between them, but their similarities are more. It is those things that leave many of us with the certainty Washington does not speak for us and it is reflected in the 10% approval rating for Congress.

    But there were contests on a smaller scale that spoke volumes about our power as voters and Americans to see beyond well financed propaganda and manipulation to support individual freedoms above slick PR and special interests.

    There was a Senate victory for Sherrod Brown in Ohio who has challenged the transfer of power from Sovereign States to bureaucratic entities like the WTO and World Bank since his years in the House a decade ago.

    Despite all the battleground banter about Ohio electoral votes for the White House it was a more important and less noted struggle. The Ohio voters won in electing a genuine public servant over well funded corporate shill with $30 million in outside money for attack ads.

    In other places thought of as swing States where Democrats prevailed the victory was more about rejecting the GoP attacks on assorted freedoms. Voters cast ballots for women’s rights to choose what reproductive and health care they want for themselves and to reject Tea Party PAC powers of Koch Brothers and Rovian secret interests far more than an endorsement of Democrats beyond being the only alternative.

    Individual liberty also had wins on referendums for Marriage Equality that reaffirm a civil contract entered by consenting adults should not be limited by religious tradition or a fringe perception of morality, but instead support the American ideal that equal means everybody. Maine, Maryland and Minnesota official joined in support of equality for two adults of any gender to be committed to one another as legal partners.

    The victory for LGBT grassroots efforts with an increasingly educated electorate, who are able to understand that the ability to perform an administrative job is not tied to who you love or what’s tucked in your undies.

    Tammy Baldwin became the first openly gay Senator. Baldwin was elected by Wisconsin voters who have been fighting tooth and nail against ravages of Koch brothers Tea Party Governor dismantling public sector employee unions and playing other games with State funds. Those collective assaults on individual rights has turned a silent majority into a participatory force to be reconed with in Wisconsin.

    Another victory for individual liberties came in the area of marijuana reforms where Colorado and Washington voters approved legalization and Massachusetts passed medicinal use on Election day.

    In a Nation that has a booming prescription drug industry and can advertize on television for us to try pharma concoctions that may cause death and other ghastly effects it seems like common sense to take weed off the list of criminal offenses but it took individual voters not political officials to make it happen.

    In California the Prop37 effort to get gmo foods labeled lost by a small margin due in part to $45 million spent by Monsanto and others on a misleading and sometimes deceptive campaign against them. But it was an historic grass roots effort to get the measure on the ballot and educate citizens that such a thing exists in our food supply and we have an issue to decide was epic.

    In the face of 15 years of media censorship and a blitz of industry PR, scaring economically strapped consumers into believing Prop37 was about elite foodies endorsing a higher costs at the grocery store, almost winning the first attempt is a huge victory for individual rights and awareness.

    What we saw win was a spirit and tradition that supports freedom when the opportunity and information are there. The challenge going forward is to try to grow the numbers of informed voters and localized or grass roots campaigns to stop the greater threats to our freedoms that were not served by most of the people elected to serve us yesterday.

    This is a critical time for American freedoms and like the issue of gmo food that was new to most consumers in California there are many threats we need to make broadly known to give people the opportunity to step up and defend them.

    We need to embrace the whistleblowers and hold our public servants accountable for truth and transparency. We know who will be serving as our representatives for the next four years now let’s commit to making them tell the truth and stand up for our rights.

    We know Americans embrace freedoms when given a choice, we just need to share the facts so they have the chance. We cannot allow telling the truth to be prosecuted as a crime of treason, nor stand by as corporate media quietly allows covert powers to strip us of them either.

      helluva nice piece of writing; what you said and how you said it. nice overview of the 2012 election from our guise point of view.

      The only way to revolutionize the food industry is to nationalize it; to protect us from the GMO factor alone justifies confiscating food production from the social irresponsibles. The 1% is killing off the 99% with their food products, and they are making us sick along the way – for the sole purpose of greedily feeding the bottom line of both the food and medical industries. The 1% can afford to eat safe, GMO–free food. The rest of us are left to pick up the crumbs of Soylent Green.

        The gmo market has been built on covert and deceptive practices with hijacked funding, take those away they’re done!

        If it makes you feel any better the 1% are getting their fair share of gmo since it’s in all the restaurants, even the 5 star chefs have no flipping clue how their olive oil blend is cut with gmo canola or their meats are raised on gmo feed. Most processed and packaged foods have some levels and you need to be a virtual expert to avoid it unless you cook from scratch or know your farmer,

        The gmo isn’t cheaper it’s just nearly all US corn, soy, canola and cotton which is a small amount of the global food supply and in almost all our processed and packaged foods. In fact what I see here is many of the ethnic communities with better diets simply from being more oriented to cooking with traditional items and imports from native countries who ban or restrict gmo.

        In US local harvest is a good way to find or start a CSA and connect with local growers and family farms.

      a follow up in case you missed it…

      Continuing: Monsanto, for systematically killing off food as we knew it, and us in the process by killing off our immune systems with their GMO poisonings (and Wal-Wart, for killing off capitalism but in such a way that it also kills off small businesses and whole towns at the same time). We have all the evidence we need of the 1%’s crimes against humanity. Now what we need to do is confiscate their assets through an orderly RICO process, and nationalize them from doing any further damage.

      In the case of Monsanto, bring in the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Agriculture to reverse the damage Monsanto has done.

    You’ve got to wonder why John Edwards was singled out for legal prosecution for a campaign spending infraction when Washington is awash in cash & filled with crooks.

    It is not to protect the ethics of the campaign funding process. Not one that allows secret SuperPacks to act as a shield for the purchasers of the election.

    Citizens United has assured unbridled & blind funding provide a mechanism to hide behind while toxic corporate interests deploy the slickest using Madison Avenue talents to buy a seat in the People’s House for their lackeys & water carriers to sit in.

    So why target Edwards? Whatever his personal failings, he is a captivating and inspirational speaker who is genuinely interested in universal health care and human rights and social programs and voices like that are always at risk for fierce defenders of justice.

    It’s not the chronic crooks and liars that are brought up on charges. Hell Bush waged a war and laid waste to Iraq with deaths in the hundreds of thousands with a bit of contorted and misreported information from a guy named Curveball and it was never even a story much less a call for investigation.

    What’s the ultimate value in targeting Edwards beyond sending a clear message & reminder who owns America’s Judicial process.

    What divides scientific discovery from industry science is a polar opposite view of findings. The process of learning continually questions and remembers how much is unknown where as industry science takes a finding and uses it as a tool to boost profits.

    Nowhere is the divide more enormous than in what passes for science in #Monsanto’s #gmo event ingredients. Technically these are events, one random, unrepeatable mutation that resulted from genetic bombardment with viral and bacterial promoters traveling with the modification gene to essentially use Nature’s power of viral and bacterial infection to get the bombed piece someplace it may do what the Biotech hope it will.

    Nevermind anything that may be triggered in the interrelationship of the genes, industry stands by 1970’s patent law premise that one gene equals one protein and ignore the fundamental error identified in the textbooks if you study genetics at all!

    Industry also argues that the #gmo are substantiall equivalent to traditional by virtue of nutrient similar as shown by feeding in slaughter animals. Best case the Roundup Ready soy has late 1980’s early 1990’s science as the original Monsanto Notice to FDA was given in 1994.

    The bigger point to get at is that the novel #gmo proteins are not identified. Not only is the food untested for human health effects it has no diagnostic markers that could help to flag the problems. In the shoddy world of big pharma the post market follow up is the sole mechanism for pulling deadly products, but not for Monsanto who gets no tracking.

    Any claims biotech might have clung to even under their phoney one gene one recallable protien scam was just blown away with an Alzheimer’s study.

    Laura Sanders at Science news explains it beautifully; researchers found a teeny, tiny protein made the difference between mouse brains that were affected by Alzheimers and ones that were not.

    We can’t even begin to guess what the Monsanto novel proteins will manifest in their long term effects as the basic information is conveniently not accessible to see if all the psoriasis and arthritis and auto immune illness is nothing more than a novel protein allergy.

    The study is fascinating but it amplifies the urgency of stopping Monsanto’s ecoinsantiy before we all lose more than we can imagine.

    Mother Nature showed her love for the Big Apple yesterday, turning a soggy start into a spectacular celebration of people in the streets. It’s not as though the city doesn’t see it’s share of enormous crowds. If corporate sponsors can make a buck & sell swill food at top buck they roll out the red carpet & greet you with open arms. Sports teams get heroes Parades & hero worship that Yaknees owners are cashing in on fee income Yankees cologne.

    The bigger the turn out the better, only when Wall Street has a cut of the gate. Same with drugs, spiff big PhARMA and the deadly side effects are shrugged off in a zombie voice tv ad. Grow a weed on the windowsill, suddenly our safety springs to the forefront & confusion abounds thanks to PR vermin.

    On the other side all together is a gathering who do not wish to shop and have legitimate complaints to voice. No indeed we’re not getting that red carpet feeling at all when Occupy Spirit is in the air the #NYPD cover the crowd with shoulder to shoulder containment in a show of force that makes them laughable enough, toss in the riot gear & it is Hogans Heroes Sargent Schultz Show, whatever…

    pic links will be at the end, cross your fingers and back to the people in the street just to be & meet & get on with life as millions throughout the city do and have for centuries, non stop. We use our outside space to its fullest.

    One of the biggest improvements to the quality of life in NYC in recent years is the transformation of Broadway, converted from another congested route where fuel burners convenience trumps all, into a bike and pedestrian way. It’s lovely to stroll with tables and chairs, huge seat-worthy stones and planters. Walking along there to Bryant Park yesterday reminded me how many worlds apart a few blocks can be.

    When the envelopes of corn starch mailed to #Banksters and hazmat trucks rolled out it made me wonder if the hair-brained idea came from the Rovian PR Boys on the Rockefeller Bankster payrolls or Federal counterparts bought cheaper with paltry lobbying costs.

    What suddenly changed the threat level of the crowd from the normally bustling oasis of Bryant Park and the twenty something blocks of mingles trekking up Broadway? We were gathered to question crimes & misdemeanors & issues ignored by corporate media.

    Who fears that? Only a few very deep pockets need to do most of the fretting and the Chamber of Commerce will spread it’s arms over the underlings of the first tier in who will echo the free market mantra to every new game rigging gambit that comes along.

    It was a fabulous day, NYMetro Headline said tens of thousands filled the streets, to march as unions and immigrants and citizens defending our rights at a volume that was inspiring. I’ve got oodles of free to use pics from May Day NYC from Bryant Park south through the day to Liberty. Uploaded ones atm end as Union Square crowd set off to march, but if you’re an occupy buff there are old ones and always new ones coming! Be safe & enjoy pd :~)

    WIRED magazine may have a real inside track in areas of technology but the recent piece about Defense Industry’s ”Favorite Think Tank” misses the real story on a few levels.

    For starters it follows the MSM political chatter that sells us the idea that one party or one person makes a difference in feeding the Pentagon.

    It ain’t the Kennedy era where a public advocate for peace with the heart of a Nation behind him swayed the course of National events. We’re in 24/7 swill mode with more opinions than fact and we’re corporate demographic subjects.

    The operational structure of the #BeltwayBandits has been built over generations from a handful of Poison Ivy League friends and family fortunes. The Military Industrial complex has spawned an array of think tanks to propagate their weaponization plans.

    Lexington Institute is notable but hardly unique in helping to sell the next military conflict.

    The better way to view them is through the lens of their funders and acknowledge that between every Member of Congress and lobbyist gift to industry is a public that needs to be sold on the idea that corporate welfare is actually National Security.

    Lexington are hired guns with no unique vision or impressive skills except taking the covert triumphs of the Iran Contra affair and adding enough spin to parlay it into the illusion of international policy experts.

    A far better story than who Lexington is blogging about is the legacy of the players like Lexington who have morphed insdider OpEd into expert opinion for a gullible public.

    Follow the members backgrounds rooted in tobacco industry experience and ALEC lobbying and treat the tech savvy readers to a better class of content than the tech equivalent of dialup connection to Washington politics.

    It seems far more likely Lexington wants to infuse life into an already tired distraction. It’s the corporatist ecomaginary world of free speech and open elections that masquerade as a representative government when really a 1% circus of clones offer a choice between six of one or a half dozen of the other.

    We have a Constitutional lawyer enacting laws that strip basic freedoms and a tax dodging vulture capitalist parking money in offshore accounts as a tax dodge.

    In fact Obama’s expanded the wars Bush began and only left Iraq under terms that were not of his choosing.

    For a POTUS who is theoretically liberal and elected on a platform of change it is hard to imagine the Office has much connection to the ideals and objectives in the speeches. Tune out MSM insanity and turn in to humanity, common sense and sustainable, peaceful solutions.
