Infowars & Elite Deviance from Archbishop Romero to Wikileaks: "The corruption of the press is part of our sad reality, and it reveals the complicity of the oligarchy"
“There is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, nothing hidden that will not be made known. Everything you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight; what you have whispered in locked rooms will be proclaimed from the rooftops.”
– Luke 12:2-3 - (WikiLuke?)

A lot of people have tipped their hands lately. Like an ocean pulling back to reveal slimy critters on the rocks, the Wikileaks diplomatic cables revealed how closely linked the top international political echelons (and for that matter, grubby royals like the Houses of Saud and Windsor) are with their chums in the press. ('chum' as leftover fish guts, mostly).
The indispensable & indefatigable Mr Greenwald has The crux of the WikiLeaks debate and myriads of other fun posts and argumentations about Wikileaks laying bare our beloved elite deviant masters. My favorite analysis came from Andrew Gavin Marshall on good ol GlobalResearch.ca: Wikileaks and the Worldwide Information War. The most baller has been Guardian; shadiest = NYTimes: After 12 days of WikiLeaks cables, the world looks on US with new eyes .
We all got a lot of lulz from Operation Payback and the Anonymous scheme, but after about the 2nd or 3rd day it seems like people realized that this so-called 'cyberwar' or 'infowar' could inspire the cybergoons and Epic Porktarians to obtain moar countless billions of freshly misprinted Dollaz from The Ben Bernank to wreck the whole Internets and make like 1000 Powerpoint slides that would convince ignorant baby boomers to shut down Twitter and every remaining Web Forum forevar. MOAR: Wikileaks: Anonymous stops dropping DDoS bombs, starts dropping science - Boing Boing.
Fortunately it looks like the Anon squad has wrapped their collective head around this problem reasonably quickly and so it was pro-offered earlier on Thursday that a much sounder long-term strategy of nitpicking, diplomatic cable copyings and propagation would be better than carrying on the Festivities of blocking faceless corporate blobs like Visa et al.
Pushing out the cables, more so than DDoS lulz, truly makes the powerful sweat: punishing the random people who have to use Paypal.com because electronic payments is entirely 'collateral damage'. As we now learn, payment processors are a nasty little power cartel indeed, with State Department diplomatic fixers even trying to maintain their man-in-the-middle ripoff monopolies in places like Russia.
Best quote, and the only good use of "cyber" I've seen in years: Guardian - Bryce Lowry said: "Assange is a cyber bushranger: a renegade taunter of authority and inspiration to many who marvel at his daring to challenge the status quo."
Federal Reserve GigaCoverup Revealed but Who Cares: It's too bad the Wiki news distracted from the amazing pile of insanity at the Federal Reserve, who apparently loaned out a hizzity-gajillion dollars on the ol American Taxpayer Credit Card to sleazy and dumb-as-rocks European Bankers. It was hard as hell for Ron Paul and Alan Grayson to pry this dirty laundry out of the hub of the Great Criminal Banker Syndicate and the damn Wikileaks buzz lets the media toss the whole story in the bin.

Operational Bandwidth of the Media: A dominant factor here. You don't quite get it if you haven't worked a bit in the field. No journalist has any time. So perfectly obvious stories (not "Conspiracies©") never get any coverage. This is the dominant reality at the MN State Capitol for example. Once the media has seemed disinterested, then the participants feel free to carry on in a more 'conspiratorial' way - with only the nitpickers and lolcats remaining to blow the secrecy away.
For powerful reasons (i.e. faux objectivity) that aren't obvious, journalists need to work within certain ready made narrative forms to comply with capital-J Journalism requirements. But everyone has been laid off. And advertisers don't want downer nitpicky shit next to their happy images. This means there is no 'bandwidth' or wide array of parallel journalistic operations available to run continuously. The net only has a few threads to catch what's passing by.
It seems like there are only like 30 paid working fulltime journalists in America who have a big mainstream platform to nosh on the most basics, and of these, like 10 of them are actually any fun, or have any sense of daring. So it's impossible for these 10 to 30 cool cats to do the heavy lifting and come up with catchy hooks for the editors. In the NY Times, you're left with nothing left but catchy hooks - any meat is of course below Paragraph 12.
And thus, the tide of garbage has kept piling, and piling and piling, to the point we are vaulting headfirst towards a degenerate & bankrupt Banana Republic stage. The strong tonic of GigaLeaks is certainly one of few remaining battering rams...

Some poor bastard posted this on youtube (hat tip Gary Franchi aka Camp Fema film guy) "I worked in Mal-Wart loss prevention,went to a regional meeting and was told that the Co. has more personal data on Americans than all US miltiary intel,CIA,FBI and NSA combined,additionally they were responsible for collecting 50cents of every retail dollar spent in the US.This is an evil corp.and we will see true corporatism(Fascism) begin with them."

Raw Milk fascists - Joint Milk Terrorism Task Force what? A few details aboot: Search warrant served on raw milk in Minnetonka | Grand Forks Herald
I have worked on this subject a bit but don't have enough of the picture determined. I know for a fact the lawyers at the Department of Agriculture are totally confused about hazy wording of actual MN Statutes in question, but that never stops the G-Men when they've got momentum.
MN Department of Agriculture is party to a full blown Joint Terrorism Milk Task Force type jalopy spanning California to Pennsylvania, the hardcore fascist grain - erm texture - of food control freak-ism. Like with Walmart, the feds are pathologically incapable of culturing diverse commercial environments, with the only alternative as topdown elite controlled monocultures and the ruthless pillaging of all smaller & independent units.
The FDA and USDA are infested with a fatally obsolete & flawed ideology best thought of as "The War on Bacteria" which like the Wars on Drugs and Terror, are totally insane, unwinnable and Designed To Fail Expensively and Profitably For Someone, Including The Usual Suspects.
They believe that sterilized 'dead' food is the only safe type, and fermentations, cultures, etc., have to all be annihilated. The only winners are gigantic agricultural processing corporations that eat their competition through price fixing, and since everyone hates their bland, toxic products and wants alternatives, the next step is the ruthless elimination, defamation & terrorizing of these alternatives.
On the other hand I can't speak to the quality of the Hartmann's unpasteurized raw milk, but it is Hartmann's Constitutional Right in Minnesota to sell products of his home or garden with no license required. Period.
The MN Department of Health is keeping the hell away from this one. It is coordinated by friends of the Esoteric Milk Price Fixing Racket which is controlled from Chicago by an Arbitrary Block of Cheese - the rather apocalyptically lethal FDA, which kills more Americans than terrorism, sharks & bee stings combined, is behind all of this.
This is a huge story really, a tip of an iceberg, and certainly related to the "Die Hippie Farmer Scum" S510 bill of Doom.

PRISONERS ON STRIKE: Something with some damn dignity met with the usual goon operations: GA Inmates Stage One Day Peaceful Prison Strike, Authorities React With Violence | Corrente
Let me share this press release:
Press Release - BIGGEST PRISONER STRIKE IN U.S. HISTORY
Thousands of Georgia Prisoners to Stage Peaceful Protest
December 8, 2010 - Atlanta, Georgia
Contacts: Elaine Brown, 404-542-1211, firstname.lastname@example.org;Valerie Porter, 229-931-5348, email@example.com; Faye Sanders, 478-550-7046, firstname.lastname@example.org
Tomorrow morning, December 9, 2010, thousands of Georgia prisoners will refuse to work, stop all other activities and remain in their cells in a peaceful, one-day protest for their human rights. The December 9 Strike is projected to be the biggest prisoner protest in the history of the United States.
These thousands of men, from Baldwin, Hancock, Hays, Macon, Smith and Telfair State Prisons, among others, state they are striking to press the Georgia Department of Corrections (?DOC?) to stop treating them like animals and slaves and institute programs that address their basic human rights. They have set forth the following demands:
· A LIVING WAGE FOR WORK: In violation of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution prohibiting slavery and involuntary servitude, the DOC demands prisoners work for free.
· EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES: For the great majority of prisoners, the DOC denies all opportunities for education beyond the GED, despite the benefit to both prisoners and society.
· DECENT HEALTH CARE: In violation of the 8th Amendment prohibition against cruel and unusual punishments, the DOC denies adequate medical care to prisoners, charges excessive fees for the most minimal care and is responsible for extraordinary pain and suffering.
· AN END TO CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENTS: In further violation of the 8th Amendment, the DOC is responsible for cruel prisoner punishments for minor infractions of rules.
· DECENT LIVING CONDITIONS: Georgia prisoners are confined in over-crowded, substandard conditions, with little heat in winter and oppressive heat in summer.
· NUTRITIONAL MEALS: Vegetables and fruit are in short supply in DOC facilities while starches and fatty foods are plentiful.
· VOCATIONAL AND SELF-IMPROVEMENT OPPORTUNITIES: The DOC has stripped its facilities of all opportunities for skills training, self-improvement and proper exercise.
· ACCESS TO FAMILIES: The DOC has disconnected thousands of prisoners from their families by imposing excessive telephone charges and innumerable barriers to visitation.
· JUST PAROLE DECISIONS: The Parole Board capriciously and regularly denies parole to the majority of prisoners despite evidence of eligibility.
Prisoner leaders issued the following call: 'No more slavery. Injustice in one place is injustice to all. Inform your family to support our cause. Lock down for liberty!'
Bravo, Prisoners, Bravo! Some of us, more than others, have that direct view of the growing Prison Planet.
