May 1, 2011: Our VJ Day
May 1, 2011: the Post-Modern VJ Day These latter-day celebrants as the vanguard, such as it is, of US society instinctively reacted to the biggest news of the last ten years: We got him. We finally got the bastard, the man that inspired, took credit for, and may as well have been flying the planes that hit the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and rural Pennsylvania. Let 'em party.

Dear City Repair: What The Fuck?
For two years in a row, I have dutifully come to the Earth Day event in Portland, right across the street from the Vegan Mall. And for two years in a row, I have been astonished to find that the idiots at City Repair brought back the dead fur booths, the pulled pork booths, and the general rose festival pointlessness to the whole thing. I tried talking to the organizers, and got this: "Respect their diversity, man." Earth to fucking liberals: No. This is NOT what diversity means. Not by a FUCKING LONG SHOT.

North American Perimeter Security and the Militarization of the Northern Border
In a Fortress North America, the U.S. seeks to push out its security perimeter whereby the northern border would act as another layer of security. It would be open to trade, as well as trusted travellers and labour mobility. The move towards a North American security perimeter is nothing more than a pretext for U.S. control over the continent.

The Fake Budget Debate in DC
By definition, a "debate" requires two opposing sides holding mutually exclusive opinions. In the U.S. Congress, however, real debate has all but vanished. Instead, we are subjected to endless blather that — if you listen closely — is a simple discussion over splitting hairs.

There can be no U.S. budget debate when both sides have already agreed that massive cuts to social programs — including Medicare and Social Security — will be the foundation of any plan.

Zahir Ebrahim's Comment on Judy Wood's 'The New Hiroshima' and 'Where did the towers go?'
Judy Wood's new book on 9/11 evidence compilation: 'Where did the towers go?' Therefore, for those attempting to study 9/11, it is primarily a forensic case for a Sherlock Holmes and a Hercule Poirot who can draw on expert opinions as pertinent and set aside other expert opinions as false, rather than some some simplistic noble minded (and Nobel minded) scientists and self-ascribed scholars of truth assuming that the only thing false about 9/11 was the false-flag operation of demolishing the towers, but everything else is straightforward including the "evidence". Nothing is straightforward. A criminal mind that can plan and execute the 9/11 as 'Operation Canned Goods' for creating the pretext for "imperial mobilization" is certainly also diabolically smart enough to realize that it also would require cover stories and the subsequent spins, including leaving a trail of enticing red herrings right at the crime scene. If an overzealous detective picks up one or more of these red herrings as if they are real clues, and creates his erudite analysis on this "evidence", you know where he ends up - in the woods! No pun intended.

Hillary Clinton Flies To Fukushima To Fix Everything
Let me tell you a little secret: Hillary Clinton cannot do shit in Japan. Japan is the third or fourth largest nuclear power (about equal with China) on earth. Not only that; Japan is technologically beyond what most people can imagine. Most importantly, it has the option of siding either with the Eastern Powers or the Western Powers. Nobody can mess with Japan (except China — it gets very tricky here).

The Fukushima "Mass Extinction Event"
I'm just not seeing the Fukushima "mass extinction event" in quite the same way as some others, I'm afraid. Experts agree that the zirconium alloy tubes that hold uranium oxide pellets in plant #1, reactors #1 and #3 have probably overheated and turned into "rust," allowing the pellets to fall to the bottom of their containment vessels, below the boron control rods, and their heat may be destroying the vessel's at their bottoms. (Why didn't GE put control rods at the bottoms?)

The pool of "spent" fuel rods in reactor #3 (comprising many tons of uranium and plutonium oxide) is missing, and presumably just got blown sky-high. There could conceivably be enough plutonium dust in the air to kill everyone on earth now.

TEPCO is keeping the reactor vessels as cool as possible by pumping countless tons of water into them, and is letting the ultra-highly radioactive water drain to the sea. This water will be swept north by the local Black Current (the Pacific's equivalent to the North Atlantic Current) and will travel to Russia, Alaska, California, etc. It could possibly kill everything in the oceans.

There is no real plan (there is an "official plan" now, but it can't be serious) for ending the catastrophe. China, Russia, Korea and others will undoubtedly sue Japan in the International court. But it looks like there conceivably may exist no Japan to sue.

Paper vs. Plastic
One of the issues on the back burner in US politics now is that of undocumented immigration and sadly so. The issue was huge in 2010 due in large part to Arizona's Senate Bill 1070 which attempted to curb undocumented immigration using some controversial means. Many of the more contentious aspects of the bill ended up being cut from the bill before it went into effect and the issue is still being juggled in federal courts. Now with the nation's still troubled economy, Japan's disaster, increased turmoil in the Middle East and the budget battles, immigration is no longer front and center, which is unfortunate for many.

Propaganda and the Mighty Wurlitzer By Zahir Ebrahim
Imperial Mobilization of ruling states has the deep purse strings and the wherewithal to enact any macro propaganda they deem necessary and useful, permit Hegelian dialectics to be spawned within it covering the entire gamut of discourse with opposites alternately denying and affirming with truths, half-truths, and imaginative evidence-free story-telling, and can sustain it over long periods of time because while governments change, the Mighty Wurlitzer goes on forever. Therefore, understanding the Mighty Wurlitzer is essential for getting one's head wrapped around statecraft that defines itself as: 'Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the State'.
