Halloween

October 30, 2009

Halloween has already been a blast with all the media coverage and costumes in the street.

“With Hallowe’en upon us, Charlie Higson reads from his chilling new novel for children, The Enemy, in which grown-ups have been wiped out or turned into zombies by a killer virus, and talks to Michelle Pauli about running the book past his 10-year-old son, killing off his characters, and why children are intrigued by horror.”

It’s also a time for new tv shows and entertainers trying to make a mark. You can always check a vampire’s transcripts before and after a major horror event. If the vampire has “it” that year, he’ll get more callbacks from Hollywood after Halloween than before. That’s why every aspiring vampire keeps his transcripts.

The EU pushes forward

October 30, 2009

The EU is taking steps forward with climate change. It approved 50 billion euros from the rich countries to help stop carbon emissions in poor countries.(1)

Soon the EU will have to pay up on gas to Russia as well.(2)

Ahem, Cuba again

October 30, 2009

It’s not the biggest or most important library, but the Kennedy library just scored Ernest Hemingway archives from Castro’s government. Ernest Hemingway is acknowledged as one of Amerika’s greatest writers.

Readers can see what we had to say about Ted Kennedy’s memoirs and Cuba too.

Michelle Obama and Reagan-style optimism

October 29, 2009

The New York Times mentions some quotes from Michelle Obama to Katie Couric. Michelle Obama re-paraphrases Jiang Qing, who reportedly said sex is engaging in the initial rounds but power is the long sustainer.

Instead of sex, Michelle Obama talks about cuteness as “lasts for so long.” Based on MIM’s criticisms, Michelle Obama countered the eroticizing-power line of Jiang Qing; although, Jiang Qing did not live in an imperialist country. Michelle Obama advises to stay with those who “make you completely happy and make you feel whole.”

This is clearly the voice of the Liberal gender aristocracy. The Founding Fathers talked about “pursuit of happiness” and Reagan talked about optimism in Amerika.

No man should have the power to make a female “completely happy,” especially not under imperialism. This is the call to gender privilege and love of patriarchy, which at this moment includes sexual torture in U.$. prisons.

A persyn should look to happiness in regard to society, not an individual, even if that individual could potentially be the anchor of a family. That’s why we know what we think of Korean females who date U.$. occupier troops and Palestinian females who would be made “completely whole” by I$raeli men. Otherwise, the reasoning will be that he made his girlfriend “completely happy.” It’s a matter of according society and the importance of its affairs the proper role in one’s own happiness, and not putting the individual above the class, nation and gender struggle. If we put revolutionaries in the place of responsibility of making romance partners “completely happy,” we are headed for big trouble anywhere in the world.

In the imperialist countries there is no progressive role for Reagan-style “morning in America” whether by conservatives, liberals or pseudo-communists. Instead we want females to be discontented and unhappy in Amerikkka when they are alone, and we want them to be still unhappy and discontented when they have a husband, never mind a boyfriend. Such an approach is not the same as in a Third World country constructing socialism.

Good reference though.

Mideast and horse-trading update

October 29, 2009

The ball may have started rolling yesterday. There was an interesting reception of the Iranians by the Pope.(1)

Also it appears someone has opened a channel to me. From my understanding of my legal position, I can’t really address it.

I now have two separate reports of yet another innuendo not discussed before. And anyone who paid attention this past week now knows that any election idea for me was stupid, because of Swift Boat considerations. Even people I recruited in the 1980s and 1990s fell for Islamophobia and anti-Asian racism.

As far as I’m concerned, this past week discredited everything said these past 15 months to fool the people globally about elections and “freedom.” The problem here is indeed cultural.

I also want to stress that I have made no deal with Obama. The potent question of third party infiltration is on the table. It’s a more important card than others that can be handed over; although, there have been plenty of violations of the Constitution.

Black Muslim leader killed by Obama-Holder administration

October 29, 2009

On October 28, “Luqman Ameen Abdullah, 53, also known as Christopher Thomas, was gunned down after refusing to surrender and opening fire when the FBI raided a Dearborn warehouse, FBI spokeswoman Sandra Berchtold said.”(1)

Other reports said the group followed H Rap Brown in prison, a 1960s radical.

MIM has warned since 2006 against the Islamophobia in the Obama-Avakian-Kasama milieu. It’s not that they never make some feeble statements to oppose imperialist wars, but their priorities are not internationalist. They typically use rhetoric to cover up spying and disruption services on behalf of imperialism and their own careers.

The same day, the U.S. federal government was authoring leaks of previously uncirculated (by feds) baseless allegations against me. More importantly the left-wing of parasitism was still conspiring against the largest U.$. website that would have done something about the attack, the old MIM website. Thus attacks against Islam and MIM are coordinated by the same people MIM always said were coordinating in national oppression.

We call for an independent investigation by the people. The Republicans won’t do it.

The EU is making a mistake at this juncture in allowing U.$. politics to polarize. There is no widespread internationalist pole here of substance. The Amerikkkans themselves are too culturally wrapped in anti-Asian racism and Islamophobia to be able to fix their own problems. In its own imperialist interests, the EU should make the internal deals it needs, but it should make sure the ball is rolling.

Angolagate

October 29, 2009

36 French stand convicted of bribing/arms smuggling in connection to 30 Angolan officials including President Dos Santos.

The MPLA in Angola received Soviet aid; that is well known. The French role had been shrouded till now.

The government of Angola blamed UNITA Angolans previously supported by French secret services. This is a tough charge to make, because the trial only charged French people, including the now convicted son of the president Mitterand.

Dos Santos broke relations with France when the trial started.(1) If true, the convictions prove that Mao was correct to separate France from the United $tates in his Three Worlds Theory. At the same time, the convictions may represent greater cooperation between the West and Soviet social-imperialism than hitherto admitted in history.

Another French legal conflict involves scandal between President Sarkozy and former Prime Minister De Villepin. Sarkozy claims that De Villepin allowed various untrue smears to stand to benefit his campaign.(2)

IAEA, some assembly required: Trust II

October 28, 2009

Whenever we buy a new consumer good, we check the brochure in the box for the expected contents list.

1. There is the petition to the UN Security Council.
2. There is the interrogation of atomic scientists.
3. There is the transcript of atomic weapons considerations.
4. Then of course there is follow-up to make sure nothing gets in the hands of terrorists.
Without complete preparations the IAEA has a hard time.

Daily update

October 28, 2009

Hey don’t blame me this week. I always said we might have enough people to run the U.$. media some day, not the government. We need the dictatorship of the proletariat of the oppressed nations from outside.

“‘You see, there is a bomb blast in every corner[of the region] and so many civilians are actually losing their lives,’ said Erdogan, who arrived in Tehran on Tuesday for talks with high-ranking Iranian officials.

He was referring to a sequence of deadly bomb blasts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, which killed hundreds of civilians over the past few days.

“This shows that the goals set for peace and security in the twenty-first century have not been materialized and the global players have not performed their duties well,’ he continued.”

Politics like Crisco

October 28, 2009

When your politics are like Crisco
They feel it out in ‘Frisco
Just go ask the rank-and-file
About that rubble pile

Sometimes multinational corporations get such a short shake. They have to do global business and the labor aristocracy is always complaining. It’s just awful when the leading engines of our economic development get the blame for unpopular foreign countries.

Is it really Google’s fault that it has to have business with the equivalent of Idi Amin? Can Google help it when unflattering stories about their business partners appear? And those windbag global diplomats, what good are they in ever preventing these things from developing into a brouhaha?

Those partisan Democrats, they’re awful, so one-track. When the rank-and-file find out about story-telling biographic research being released and who is to blame, they always pounce, without fail. It’s reflex. Don’t they know they are stuck in a general politics of Crisco?

Sometimes a little damage to a relationship is to prevent larger damage. That’s why we should all watch “Sex and the City.”

Well, I’m not sure the British have it in them to do the right thing. That’s why I went to Congress first anyway. Which is worse, being a parliamentary cretin or believing in the land of poodles? I must be so stupid.

Maybe I should be more pragmatic and do what Democrats always do, just like the Human Rights Campaign. Democrats do what Democrats do and I should just grow up.
