• I Finally Make It to Wikileaks

    Though I believe one of the alleged cables I allegedly wrote while allegedly employed by the alleged Department of State may have alledgedly been included in the 250,000 documents Chelsea Manning most certainly revealed to Wikileaks, I’m not supposed to tell.

    But now, thanks to an alert reader (DP, this one goes out to you), I have just found out that I officially made it to Wikileaks.

    The “GI Files” (General Intelligence files) published by Wikileaks, feature over five million emails from the Texas headquartered “global intelligence” company Stratfor. They reveal the inner workings of a company that fronts as a publisher, but in reality provides confidential, subscription-based, intelligence services to large corporations, such as Dow, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and government agencies, including Homeland Security, the Marine Corps and the Defence Intelligence Agency.

    Wikileaks revealed that on June 13, 2011, one of my blogs posts was blended into an article published by the English-language Jordan Times, which was picked up by the BBC. Stratfor then republished the article, including BBC’s copyright, which included my stuff, as an intelligence product to its paying clients.

    Now, the implications of this are several-fold:

    — Obviously if you get your news from Stratfor, the BBC or the Jordan Times, stop wasting your time and just read my blog. It’s free.

    — How can the BBC copyright something I wrote?

    — How can jerks like Stratfor get away with charging people serious coin for republishing things off the internet/BBC/Jordan Times?

    — And lastly, I think somebody owes me a check (which I will donate to Wikileaks)

    Your move Stratfor.

      “Rand Paul says FU too:”

      Indeed. Normally,, I detest all politicians, but once in a while, one comes along that does something that not only royally pisses off the entire Plutocracy, but really does justice to the Constitution. I would vote for him just because of that. But I ain’t holding my breath. Knowing the fact that every judge in the appellate has already traded his soul to the same employer as the DOJ, and given the NSA surveillance state’s power of ..well..let’s just call it ..ahem..”persuasion”..right now I don’t give it a snowballs chance in hell. The only question is..after these Judges rule to subjugate the masses, knowing that the Law of Unintended Consequences will follow them to the grave..how do they look at them self in a mirror.

      But then again..Greenwald isn’t finished.

      “How can jerks like Stratfor get away with charging people serious coin for republishing things off the internet/BBC/Jordan Times?”

      Part of the answer lies within Aaron Swartz’s persecution legacy. However, the best answer I’ve seen in over 10 years of researching the octopus, is so profound in it’s sublime face slapping truth, one has to readjust his reality sphere to accept the simplicity of human natures acquiescence to ETERNAL evil.

      @Pitchfork, thanks for the link to Wikileaks regarding what the U.S. military “Special Oops” crowd likes to call “counter insurgency.”

      As they taught us back in Counter Insurgency School before deploying to South Vietnam as “Vietnamizers” of the Vietnamese: “Grab ’em by the balls and their hearts and minds will follow.”

      What a load of discredited dreck.

      Counter insurgency school. Yes. Just like the British troops of King George 111 who wanted to hang every signer of the Declaration of Independence they could capture.

      The psychopathic narcissism of legal imperialism believers never change. Different century..different psychopath. Simple. Now if the human specie would only come to grips with the evidence of it’s most dangerous gene..we might get somewhere.

      “Come on, people! It’s Stratfor, it’s what they do.”

      quote”The results of this RR investigation ought to carry consequences. In terms of common sense Stratfor’s reputation and data should not cost even a cent. It will also be necessary to revise an essential part of political history of the last 15 years. In this fairy world the “global intelligence” has seemingly predicted the date of the outbreak of the Iraq war, the attempted insurrection in Venezuela, the regime change in the Philippines… In the same fairy world almost the first thing Lauren Goodrich’s patron George Friedman discusses both in public appearances and during secret meetings with representatives of the US elite (1116544) is the threat from Russia.”unquote

      Yes, it’s what they do. Pimp for the ruling class.
      War criminals in business suits are still war criminals. But in this case, Statfor is in a league of it’s own. Psychopaths indeed. Lauren Goodrich is certifiable. Here is living proof…


      ya know, Hollywood writers don’t have a clue. A billion dollars worth of scripts and they don’t even have to make it up. The entire reality of unfolding world events at the finger tips of a psychopath. CIA heads must have exploded.


      bartender..pour me a Russian vodka. I wanna see what makes them so fucking crazy.

      Stratfor analogy…

      quote”Bernays, our premiere American propagandist, was bragging about how well American Propaganda, Spin, and Public Relations work to herd us along in our very misguided national direction.

      There is only one word for a person who would guide people in a direction toward their deaths via war, ecocide, and the demise of civilization.

      That word is psychopath.”unquote

      Thank you very much.
