Anyone check out CHT lately?

It’s been a long time since I’d taken a look.

 

The usual suspects are still there. And if they were batshit cracy back in the days of the Soars Board, they’re off the scale nowadays. If they reflect even a fringe of US poltical thought, you guys are toast. Franco would eschew these folks as ultraextremists.

 

Gawd.

Syria

“It’s being called a ‘revolt’ by intelligence pros who are paid to give their honest assessment of the ISIS war—but are instead seeing their reports turned into happy talk.

More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military’s Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials, The Daily Beast has learned.”

I hate to use the Daily Beast as a source after all their atrocious lies about Amanda Knox, but I guess they’re the source of the story.

Disgusting

I follow politics in a number of countries, peruse the press of at least 3 counties daily.

 

I increasingly find that the talking points of the rw and center-right (previously known as the center-left) to be coordinated. Talking points aren’t limited to members of the same parties in the same countries, but they cross borders.

In Spain we have the rw PP CONSTANTLY screaming about the threat of Podemos’ populism.  The same fucking talking points in the US, Spain, the UK and elsewhere.

 

And now, with Corbyn’s win, we have this.

It’s fucking transparent. The same corps in every country, the same special interests, spewing the same (PR-managed) messages to hoodwink the ignorant electorate.

 

Democracy? Risible.

 

Time and time again I see politicos following an obviously scripted response to this and that. Buzz words, formulated responses… we’ve all seen this before, and some of us may have actually noticed.

 

have you?

Corbyn!

The revolt against the “center-right” that presents itself as “center-left” has moved up from Spain to the UK… by a landslide .

 

It was about time. If anyone followed the story, one would have seen the likes of Bliar railing against Corbyn and a return to a real left opposition.

 

Well, he may become a failure, but democracy needs more than 2 vanilla flavours. For me I’d like to see 31 Baskin & Robbins in every democracy, but failing that, at least a chocolate and vanilla choice.

 

What makes me happiest is that the 3rd Way folk went all-out to torpedo Corbyn, and he won by a landslide. The Labour rank-and-file appear to be far more “aware” than the ranks of Spain’s PSOE, France’s PSF, and the US’ DNC (outside the Sanders’ crew).

 

May the revolution continue…
