Spying on the Spies Spying on Us

Spies spy, this is their official overt mandate although their actions are suppose to be covert. NSA spying on allies is not shocking to me (see Guardian article below). When you operate from a paranoid world-view that everyone is out to get you (read US of Constant Wars) what can one expect? This is why France’s political power base is going to vote for new powers to spy on its own citizenry. Everyone spying on everyone else is a surveillance political circle jerk (sorry for the graphic). What is scary is how easily it is to procure sensitive info and sell it to the highest bidder. As such, even Ben Franklin’s son William, a loyalist, sold information about his father to the Crown.

Snowden, Manning, Hammond, and other whistleblowers of our war economy horrific times are not offering revelations for money nor do i believe they acted from a childish need for attention. They came forward to warn and inform the world and consequently are suffering the wrath of the empire. Hypocrisy exhibited is pro forma for the empire’s hollow leadership where values and ethics are neither affirmed nor sought. For the security apparatus to perceive Julian Assange equal to a full blown terrorist ramped up to kill kids in a Pakistan school is insane. It is beyond disturbing the empire sees journalists and journalism in the same waterboarding shadows as the madmen who send kids wired with chest bombs into places of worship.

‪#‎WikiLeaks‬ publishes and also archives massive amounts of communications between nefarious govt. actors and corrupted entities along with other pertinent documents in what can only be termed – perennial intrigues. Without astute technical nerd skills to house and safeguard these cables, and various other significant data materials, you and I would be further stuck behind higher and thicker opaque walls unable to see let alone hear the truth.

For many years I rummaged around inside the dumps of political madness and historical outlines attempting to personally comprehend America’s innards and decode interlinking webs to explain same to myself, and to you. Unfortunately, in Murica big news qualifies as the opening of the newest micro-brewery or an orchestrated derailment from truth by the latest piddle stream media spin.

H/w example of a derailment = The funeral tomorrow in Charleston, South Carolina and the harangue over the Confederate colors – the battle flag of Gen. Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia. i guarantee the media will rage on for months as THE debate of heritage. South Carolina was the first state to secede, two months after the election of Abraham Lincoln. It was in South Carolina the Civil War began, when the Confederacy fired on Fort Sumter. Taking down flags that supported black slavery as the basis of white equality is reverse bigotry? It has been 150+ years the Confederate flag has flown over public buildings.

Side bar:
Souls who died or were wounded in the American Civil War (April 12, 1861 to April 9, 1865).
Union =
140,414 killed in action
~ 365,000 total dead
275,200 wounded
Confederates =
72,524 killed in action
~ 260,000 total dead
137,000+ wounded
Civilian =
75,000+
number of wounded unknown

700,000+ dead
412,200+ wounded

These numbers may sound like the south won but the north had 2 million soldiers and the south only had 1 million. Disease is what also killed, not just stupid macho bull corn called collateral murdering (war) for one’s beliefs.

Core-bemoaning – what i label the wholistic smews I write – is not popular as it requires an attention span and curious intelligence to stay the course during unfolding events without forgetting critical thinking.

I wear no mask. I am an open book with thick covers. No one is around to put a paper bag over my head. My agenda is information as a format of communication art.

The incredible dramatic need for the healing of human systemic rot is a world-wide emergency. Some of you nice folks are growing strawberries and backyard chickens as your preference to fighting the flailing system. Others of you, in desperate and far deeper piles of shit, work like crazed camels to educate the next generation (your kids) in hopes they can assume the throne of power and shift the paradigm.

My life is simple and free. Because of decades of working on a treadmill I now have the time and a devoted inclination to over come disinformation machinations by offering commentary based in factual reality. No one is my boss. No one tells me what to quote, state, or bemoan. The Net places our communications equal to any news service. Transparency, ethics, and SEO expertise can foist anyone above the din and matrix noise. Yet, be assured I am not operating as a lone wolf.

The Highlander drum I beat is repetitive and at times this grates on my snotty creative persona. I prefer jazz bent originality or at least a fresh scene to write a finer script. Yet, to help others discover the facts to break denial demands consistency be one more sharp tool to dismantle the clown car while building a bridge across the abyss of apathy.

Writing in cliche is on purpose. Making up words is part of my recovering stony writer’s prerogative. Re-using hot shot buzz words is strategic intent. Yet, facts are researched and confirmed. If i am duped into posting something faux hopefully i am the first to admit it.

What is unacceptable is the intrusion of our privacy and the alteration of justice by greed, or any other negative. What is wasteful and stupid is sexual harassment by trolls and other nut jobs.

‪#‎Freedom‬ and prosperity are not mutually exclusive. As those with conscience awake and become enraged I am not seeking a resolution by igniting anarchy. I am a Ben Franklin styled pacifist (see pbs link below). My personal goal is not to violently overthrow corporate govts., religiosity, and/or civil society. But, while i might parse out slices of mountain berry and apple pie doused in lemon curd the iced chai tea I serve is not brewed by the ‪#‎NSA‬ or, any of its subcontractors. I remain a peace and freedom revolutionary.

The Slaying of a Beautiful Mind – #Aaron Swartz

Over the last several years I report about #Anonymous, hacking, and cyber war events. Dissent in the information age is evolving faster than GMO dead bees. Here is an excellent documentary (see link below) on a brilliant superior brainiac – #AaronSwartz, a nonthreatening super being who became a victim for his belief in equal access to public documents.

Every high-end hacker – read a computer programmer/developer/innovator so quick and excellent at tasks at hand – I have been honored to interview is a millennial renaissance genius. They are unique personalities centered in info, introversion, creative system design, and compulsive passions – many are seen as paranoids (but, i see them as fear-based for authentic concerns). Many demonstrate what the cookie cutter education empire calls ‘recognizable learning disabilities’ – yet, as a political Jungian therapist I perceive these obsessives are our societal docents to question ALL authority.

They are BOHO pranksters to relieve the intensity of their advanced awareness about ruling institutions – they act out in ways the govt. cannot process totally rejecting the rigged game. Many are intolerably combative in nature, yet, by the time they were 11 or 12 years old they were the most adept hacker pirates on the planet. Each possess a self-awareness with a personalized extraordinary futuristic vision of what technology on the net can do – if free – for the greater good of all of humanity. They are the civil-disobedience role models of this century.

I implore you to watch this vid (see link below) for no other common sense reason but to comprehend why the security apparatus is hell-bent on taking out these wunderkind of the Brave New World.

Vitae/legacy:
Perfectionists, polite, inclusive, relevancy junkies, FREEDOM believers, and lovers of making the world just and right they daily impact our lives dramatically without the above ground world knowing same. Geeks, nerds, and organized chaos actors with no boundaries. Inter and intra communications via on-line discussion are taken to off-world levels.

Controversy on steroids with a human to human closeness unique to on-line contact is the norm. Outfits of slouchy jeans, dark t-shirts, and tacky non-haircuts, some with more body ink than Bradbury’s illustrated man is regular style. Totally denying consumerism, in reverse mode they are incredibly optimistic about life.

ENERGY AND FOCUS are exhibited beyond human endurance.

These are practicing master mind Netizens who have ZERO tolerance for the gatekeepers (Google, Fedbook, etc.). Thus, they are 24/7 watched by the NSA, FBI, CIA, Secret Service, and other covert operators. But, again they adore challenge and ego, be it collective or individualized, is far more fake than real.

The few I know (none in the Biblical sense) are blessed and cursed in equal proportion. Most live in crystallized fear.

If there is a subset of the techno best and brightest, they reside in Anonymous, WikiLeaks, and the deep deep net. Self-impregnation, political activism, and being a rat for the man is considered an outrageous option even if faced with jail time . . . It is a full press court from the corporate state to stop cyber warriors critical analysis and data basis collection to prove how corrosive and corrupt is the system.

Dear Glenn Greenwald (https://twitter.com/ggreenwald):

In the early 90s, I unexpectedly became aware of what i called the ‘team pollution solution’ operating inside the LA Times empire. While covering an environmental story (a former focus) I encountered a LA Times team of bullshitters. After hours in the disaster field doing interviews, inspecting the site, and generally wandering around like i am prone to do I retired to a nearby motel for the evening. After privately settling into an after work comfort zone, a brazen hammering on the plastic thin door to my temporary abode got my attention. I was forced to get up from my rest period to fling open the cheap portal and ask, “Aye, is there a bloody problem?”

A curly haired guy dressed as if his mother forgot to launder his gym clothes spat through his Heineken vapors, “Are you nuts, i mean are you some kind of f*ckin’ eco-terrorist?” Standing at the threshold in a rumbled bird print sundress and slinky sandals I responded, “Aye, and if ya aren’t a wee more civil, ya are goin’ to be me first victim.” Somehow, the tinge of Scottish accent took the intruder aback. He grinned as if on psychedelics laced with speed. “Sorry, I expected you to be kinda like a mountain man in a loin cloth. Wow, you are BE Macomber, right?”

Writing under a pen name with initials means I am not identified as female or male so the dunderhead corps expect me to be a he-man? Many times those who run a linebacker block in my direction while I am standing just off the playing field (body politic) has this effect. I am not what they perceive. My snarly semi-gonzo writing does not jive with my 5 feet 2 inches Lady Macomber green-eyed actuality.

My professional notion to observe the nation, and beyond, is for me a sworn duty to wholistic report what I see, not what a 24-year old editor an/or signator on a pay warrant wants blabbered on their masters’ behalf. When I signed up for ethics and values i must have gotten in the wrong line. Somehow I ended up standing in a Hari Krisha conga line of amateur theologians and wannabee holy seers instead of the set-up for western reporters/journos.

In the article below, Greenwald rants about the #LATimes editorial and others who work in the hallow halls of journo-tisement for the empire. Holy bleating toucans, anyone who encounters the ‘pollution (as in clogging up the world) solution (as anti-real pepper spray)’ within the Murica press knows these schmucks sold out as soon as they got their letters of acceptance from Columbia School of Journalism (CJ). It took me about five hours to be taught how to write a news story in the AP/UPI style recommended. My theory is those attending four years at CJ are subjected to a brain removal then the airy fairy space between their slanty ears is filled with corporate caca. They become soldiers of not fortune, but rather, noise making mercenaries.

Dear one, Glenn Greenwald, Esq., it is not reactionary for the LA Times to negatively blab on about Ed Snowden. It is their inbred corporate policy to defame, denounce, denigrate, and generally f*ck over truth and its messengers. Yet in the past, reading the latest fear mongering twit fantasy from the LA Times I might have emailed one or two of my terse scathing reactionaries to the faux journo who sparked my ire. So, in fairness to the game plan – freedom of the press – I do identify with your incessance to rail on against the system’s mouthpieces.

What I did to soothe my spiky head feathers = I quit cold turkey reading and watching crap disseminated by the corporate propaganda machine. Wonderful changes occurred h/w the healing jungle world. One, I immediately gained time to focus on research valuable to the movement of truth. Two, my brain is not taser-shocked with their ignorant arse ole flimsy lies. Three, I read poetry, thinkers, philosophers, and believers.

Maybe this is clearer – Lars Iyer is poignant? http://spurious.typepad.com/spurious/2007/10/incessance.html

Hey, there are other links, I am delighted to suggest to anyone willing to ask.

Final Thoughts but Not Final Curtain

If every #Netizen spent four hours critically thinking and doing research how the rigged games operate, I guarantee there would be a revolution in 24-hours. Ignorance is bliss. The world is imploding and exploding at such a rate even the solar system’s magnetics are affected and the tilt of Earth’s axis altered. This is why those who pay attention refer to this period of human devolution, as the 59th minute.

The #USA slave armies get up and do their duty-job so Israhelli can setup lawn chairs to watch #Gaza be blown to smithereens by the #IOF – herein is the crux. Until the masses wake-up, the slimy basturds elected into office or wearing stars on their collars will win the toss. Collecting mass personal information about us is the grandest bit of much a do about nothing yet to surface on the pond of illusion. The corporate puppet masters are ignorant small souls who we hand the reins to.

We successfully have never actually built an authentic #democracy in these United States. It is an urban and rural myth. Wrapping yourself in a flag while sitting in a foil lined bunker in North Sacramento, California, using a joystick to shoot bombs off drones into wedding parties in #Yemen, #Iraq, #Syria, #Pakistan, #Afghanistan,

#Gaza, and, so on, is proof positive the machine rules. If you purposely manufacture a civil society of dunderheads led by ego maniacs then this is the outcome – our species self-destructs.

Social media is the only venue left for freedom. Here we can joist, joke, and reveal facts and in solidarity attempt to inform each other. Politics has always been a numbers game with gerrymandering the root of electing idiots. I tried several routes – writing, investigating reporting, Dim party committeewoman, local activist, letters to the editor ranter, Main Street third place business owner, campaign manager for ethical candidates, fund raiser for environmental protection NGOs, and finally running for office myself.

I am here to witness the deepest consistent body politic shift i have witnessed is what social media is accomplishing along with #whistleblowers blowing the lid off the insane acts of the psychopaths.

You and I, sit here and type into the ethers, but people are reading what we write, and they repeat it to others, and another micro shift in the consciousness of humanity occurs. If anyone has a better idea how to shovel the crap off the poop deck i have yet to discover same.

There are super bright men and women who are actually convinced war is good for business and murdering Arabs is good and destroying communities by instigating sprawl is good and living in your car as a commuter is good and getting two weeks off a year for a vacation you pay by charging a credit card is good . . . for them I have no panacea. It takes vision to see. It requires an openness to implement change. It demands fortitude to keep the weakening eye on the rusty ball, everyday, year after year.

My meager methodology is to nail the basturds down, when I can. Then with facts in hand turn on the electric sunshine pinpointed exclusively in their direction. This is the role activist writers assumed for the last several thousands of years. We are the hardly humble watchdogs of injustice. We are the messy format to delivering a balance of powers with a rant for accountability. If the stars are aligned and the moon full and the tides roiling people may hear us, and they may not. My primary job is to write so you want to read, and if a home-run, you think.

Rampant deceptions and duplicity are subject to innate human intuition. Like we know beauty when we see it, we also know truth when we hear it. As to those who think the sun revolves around the planets, even they are re-teachable when vulnerable.

It could be our species must smack into the bottom with such massive magnitude that you and I, even as skeptics, can’t imagine the level of speed in the final fall from grace. Kitty kat memes, badly written love chats, and tacky emoticons do not push the culture forward. These are fluff – cotton candy with neither pretense of value nor worth time in my books. But, i live in the real jungle not a cement condo one in New Jersey. The later is not my choice and never was a blip on the mini or big screen of a life well lived.

A money tree on a sweet scented spring day did not shower me with its bounty. I worked my tail feathers to a frazzle, creatively and effectively as I knew, to escape the planet New York. Plus, i had fun tweaking and honing my world view and this craft. Yet, there were sixteen prior familial generations of Macombers who also envisioned they had the right action focus on living in harmony. See, this is why we are in the final throes of our species – corrupt and torn to shreds. We have yet to learn how to live together, as one whole species, and pass it along. Yes, this is a Beatles tune. No, it is not going to be presented as part of the platform by kitbutz Senator Bernie or Mossad operative Hillary.

One of the too cool compliments a writer or teacher receives is when they (without trumpets) deliver a string of words into the public milieu and much later someone, friend or foe, repeats the phrase in a new context exactly as the originator wrote it.

Unknown memorializing is tasty relevancy.
