How The Furries Fought The Nazis and Won - Worst Year Ever

quote [ Katy, Robert, and Cody went to Midwest FurFest. They left with a tale of a Nazi terrorist attack, and a useful guide to surviving the worst year ever, together. ]

A bit of an old one perhaps, but I think it's still relevant. Podcast from Cody Johnston & Katy Stoll (Some More News) and Robert Evans (Behind The Bastards)

The furry community continues to suprise me

The link is for part one, but part two is in the extended.

Venezuela condemns illegal kidnapping of envoy Alex Saab

quote [ Venezuela?s special diplomatic envoy, Alex Saab, was extradited to the United States on Saturday October 16 after being detained in Cape Verde for 491 days. Saab was arrested in Cape Verde on June 12, 2020 at the request of the US government when his plane was refueling at the Amilcar Cabral International Airport on the island of Sal. Following his extradition on Saturday, the Venezuelan government released an official statement condemning Saab?s ?kidnapping? by the US with complicity of Cape Verdean authorities. ]

You may remember Saab as the Venezuelan envoy who the US went after for trying to secure food and supplies for Venezuela's poor, rebelling against the US's murderous sanctions.

A Florida Anarchist Will Spend Years in Prison for Online Posts Prompted by Jan. 6 Riot

quote [ Daniel Baker?s calls for armed defense against possible far-right attacks led to a much harsher sentence than that facing most insurrectionists. ]

Fridays for Sabotage? The strange fascination of climate Blanquism

quote [ The yearning for the appearance of some group of professionals that somehow saves us from the worst kind of mess can therefore be read as a projection of a deeper kind of anxiety that plagues the present radical zeitgeist, the realization that peaceful mass-mobilizations will likely not be able to avert a climate catastrophe. ]

Catchy read about people hoping for interference.

Black Children Were Jailed for a Crime That Doesn?t Exist. Almost Nothing Happened to the Adults in Charge.

quote [ Judge Donna Scott Davenport oversees a juvenile justice system in Rutherford County, Tennessee, with a staggering history of jailing children. She said kids must face consequences, which rarely seem to apply to her or the other adults in charge. ]

I can't decide if it's worse that we find out that this whole monstrous thing is another Kids for cash scandal, or it's just the typical white supremacist "justice system" in action.

Six-Month Sentence for Lawyer Who Took on Chevron Denounced as 'International Outrage'

quote [ "This ruling was done to deter ANYONE from crossing corporate special interests." ]

Surprised I've never posted about Steven Donziger before.

Long story short he's a human rights lawyer who helped Ecuadorean people who were victims of Texaco's (now owned by Chevron) environmental malfeasance decades ago. He repeatedly won in Ecuador's courts, only to have the ruling overturned by US courts. He was then accused of corruption by Chevron, found in contempt of court (by a federalist judge with connections to Chevron) when he refused to reveal sources, and has been under house arrest for the past two years.

UN Says Steven Donziger?s House Arrest Violates International Law

Tampa police called for hundreds to be evicted. Entire families lost their homes.

quote [ Since 2013, the Tampa Police Department has taken a hands-on role at more than 100 apartment communities, sending notices to landlords when their tenants are arrested or stopped by officers and encouraging their eviction.

The program, known as Crime-Free Multi Housing, was marketed to landlords as a way to keep violent crime and drug and gang activity off their properties.


But the program also swept up more than 100 people who were arrested for misdemeanors ? and dozens more whose charges were later dropped, a Tampa Bay Times investigation has found.


And roughly 90 percent of the 1,100 people flagged by the program were Black, police records show. That?s despite Black residents making up only 54 percent of all arrests in Tampa over the past eight years. ]

Well, at least it's just an isolated incident in Florida of all places and oh, Crime-Free Housing Lets Police Influence Landlords - The Atlantic

So it turns out this is a nationwide thing often used by local governments in conjunction with their real estate developing friends to clear (typically) black people out of areas to be redeveloped. They make a deal with the police, cops go gung ho and do stop and frisk type shit to poor people en masse, leading to eviction after eviction.

U.K. Parliament report details how NATO's 2011 war in Libya was based on lies

quote [ British investigation: Gaddafi was not going to massacre civilians; Western bombing made Islamist extremism worse ]

The number of people I know who know flat out nothing about Libya but rationalized Gaddafi's violent murder in the streets because he was kinda creepy to Condoleezza Rice is too damn high. We took a country with the highest standards of living in Africa and turned it into a war zone with open air slave markets.

Mission Accomplished, y'all.???

MIT Predicted in 1972 That Society Will Collapse This Century. New Research Shows We?re on Schedule.

quote [ A remarkable new study by a director at one of the largest accounting firms in the world has found that a famous, decades-old warning from MIT about the risk of industrial civilization collapsing appears to be accurate based on new empirical data.

As the world looks forward to a rebound in economic growth following the devastation wrought by the pandemic, the research raises urgent questions about the risks of attempting to simply return to the pre-pandemic ?normal.? ]

Lol, I'm sure we're gonna get right on that.
