Festive Left Friday Blogging: It was ten years ago today…

…that Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play:

Actually, the Venezuelan people didn’t need no stinkin’ band. They rescued their president from a US-backed coup attempt with no outside help whatsoever, and with him, their democracy. The State Dept. would rather you forgot all about that, no doubt. But I’m not about to . . . → Read More: Festive Left Friday Blogging: It was ten years ago today…

I was wondering when THEY would show up…

Hot on the heels of Trayvon Martin’s murder by an armed white vigilante, we get…this:

And this is what THAT was all about:

A member of the Ku Klux Klan was arrested in Mount Victory, Ohio over the weekend after he allegedly pulled a gun and threatened to shoot a black man during . . . → Read More: I was wondering when THEY would show up…

Hard evidence of a racist murder

Many people swear they heard George Zimmerman, the self-styled neighborhood watch captain who shot and killed Trayvon Martin, use the offensive, racist phrase “fucking coons” on the 911 call in which a dispatcher tried and failed to dissuade him from pursuing the victim. Apparently Zimmerman said it under his breath, but not quite inaudibly. CNN’s . . . → Read More: Hard evidence of a racist murder

The poutine thickens.

And look! There’s a Spanish fly in it:

RackNine, the Edmonton company that suspect “Pierre Poutine” used to send voters to the wrong polling locations, is operated by Edmonton businessman Matt Meier, with the help of Rick McKnight, who is identified variously as head of marketing and web developer.

The JFK assassination hoax that refuses to die

Oh, Che. What would you say if you knew how much of this struggle still remains to be fought…and how much ground the good guys have lost since you lost your last fight? Case in point: this professional liar from The Gang That Could Not Shoot Straight. This is what we North Americans are . . . → Read More: The JFK assassination hoax that refuses to die

Economics for Dummies: The scariest poet in Britain?

Funny, he doesn’t look so intimidating to me:

But then again, I’m not a corporate tax dodger.

Cops Behaving Badly: Wanna file a complaint?

Be warned…you have to pass the blue wall just to get a complaint form:

This ten-minute montage was compiled from hidden-camera footage taken all over the US. Apparently, police using stalling tactics, intimidation, threats, etc. to prevent complaints being filed against their own, is a very common thing. They cannot and will not abide . . . → Read More: Cops Behaving Badly: Wanna file a complaint?

Stupid Sex Tricks: Fake flash, real arrest

Well, howdy there, Beer Can Man. Ill-advised dress-up games seem to be a thing with you, eh? Let’s hope this doesn’t become a thing for anyone else…

A few random thoughts about whores

Before we begin, a little mood music:

Ah. Thank you so much for that lovely music (and that uncharacteristic truthfulness), Mr. Limbaugh.

So, Rush…how’s it feel to be at the bottom of your own shit-avalanche for a change? Fun, eh? Yeah, you really had everybody going there, with your “absurdist” humor that isn’t . . . → Read More: A few random thoughts about whores

Why Stephen Harper stole our elections

I have a terrible confession to make, kiddies: I feel absolutely no pity or sorrow for Stephen Fucking Harper, now that his chickens are finally coming to roost after more than 20 years. Yeah, I know that the man has been our so-called prime minister only since 2006, and with a very mediocre electoral . . . → Read More: Why Stephen Harper stole our elections

Henrique Capriles Radonski: Neither victim nor victor

Remember this picture? The lamestream media up here don’t want you to. According to them, this silly poser, who pretended to be a Communist while in China for the Beijing Olympics, is The Man Who Will Beat Hugo Chávez, assuming that the allegedly rampant anti-semitism in Venezuela doesn’t make him the victim of a . . . → Read More: Henrique Capriles Radonski: Neither victim nor victor

Stupid (Anti-)Sex Tricks: The American Lie League, and other hilarious crapagandroids

Need a good laugh tonight? Here ya go:

Mmmmmm, penis cupcakes and vagina macaroons! Yummy!

Jezebel calls this “the most hilariously lewd thing you’ll ever see”, and they’re not far from the truth. This hysterical video inadvertently gives away the makers’ own creepy fetishes. Calling Planned Parenthood a pusher of sex-as-drugs-to-children, and then offering . . . → Read More: Stupid (Anti-)Sex Tricks: The American Lie League, and other hilarious crapagandroids

Never Cry Wolf (just throw strychnine)

This…is unbefuckinglievable. This is the sort of shit that would have been done 50 years ago. It’s also the sort of shit Canada isn’t supposed to be doing anymore. And yet, this is happening right now, and for the worst of all conceivable reasons:

Late last week, internal documents went public showing Canada is . . . → Read More: Never Cry Wolf (just throw strychnine)

How evil triumphed in Argentina and British Columbia

Riddle me this: What does this…

“It wasn’t one or two cases, or one or two officers involved, but many, thus there was a pattern, a plan” to take away those babies from their biological families which they considered “non trustworthy or communists”, said Elliott Abrams former US Assistant Secretary of State.

Fortuna Silver = Nasty Ass Honey Badger

No means NO, no matter what

Marital rape: It’s not just “rough sex” or “role-playing”.

A young academic has been sentenced to four months in jail for sexually assaulting his wife during rough sex despite his claim that, in their dominant-submissive sexual role playing, “no” frequently meant “yes.”

Cops Behaving Badly: Doubleplusungood

Today’s entry in the annals of rotten cop behavior is a two-fer. First, from Florida, a disturbing case of racist elder abuse, caught on dashcam (despite the cop’s efforts to switch the camera off):

MerCHEdes? Of atrocities and apologies (still owing) from Mercedes-Benz

Yes, the above is an atrocity, and a gross violation of rights. But not for the reasons the gusanos of Miami claim. Cubadebate explains what’s really horrible about it:

The luxury-vehicle company Mercedes-Benz apologized this week for having used the image of Che Guevara in a publicity campaign. Its apology, however, is for the . . . → Read More: MerCHEdes? Of atrocities and apologies (still owing) from Mercedes-Benz

Keystone XL: Dirty oil barons threaten Obama

The clearest, most concise explanation yet of why the Keystone XL pipeline project, which would ferry dirty tar-sands oil from Alberta to Texas, must not proceed. Yes, all this talk of “ending our dependence on foreign oil” is a LIE. Shocking? Wait, it gets worse. The pipeline would also threaten a geologically unstable area . . . → Read More: Keystone XL: Dirty oil barons threaten Obama

Cops Behaving Badly: Fuck the Police (Before They Fuck You)

Some call them drones…

…others call them Job Creators:

America’s growing drone operations rely on hundreds of civilian contractors, including some, such as the SAIC employee, who work in the so-called kill chain before Hellfire missiles are launched, according to current and former military officers, company employees and internal government documents.

Relying on private contractors has brought corporations . . . → Read More: Some call them drones…

Cops Behaving Badly: Death by pepper spray

Florida police bound, gagged and pepper-sprayed a mentally ill man until he died. Interestingly, this was reported by FUX Snooze, in a non-snoozing mode for a change. Let’s hear Megyn Fucking Kelly try to explain how “a food product, essentially” could cause the death of a depressed and vulnerable individual. I can hardly wait…

How Wired missed the real Assange/Manning story

A couple of days ago, Bradley Manning celebrated his birthday behind bars for the second year in a row. He’s still awaiting trial, with no word on when it will begin.

Spyware for Arab despots: Germany’s latest source of shame

Wikileaks just keeps exposing the imperialist underside of western “democracy”. And one of the latest to be embarrassed by revelations is Germany — an unlikely player in the imperial game, seeing as it’s been officially out of it since World War II ended. But what used to be done overtly by governments has since . . . → Read More: Spyware for Arab despots: Germany’s latest source of shame
