Ground Troops in Syria and Special Ops “Porn” - Adam Johnson tells us (goharrison.com) from his story “White House Reveals ‘Boots on Ground’ in Syria, but Media Too Giddy Over Special Ops Porn’... The White House announced on Saturday that a team of Delta Force soldiers had gone into sovereign Syrian territory to kill an alleged ISIS ‘commander’ and a few dozen other faceless bad guys.

“Per usual, the media would retell the narrative based entirely on Pentagon and White House action movie prose. Just as with the bin Laden raid narrative -- that later turned out to be mostly false -- this tale involved some unbelievably compelling details: ‘rescuing a Yazidi slave,’ ‘hand-to-hand combat,’ ‘women and children as human shields,’ ‘precise fire’ (that, of course, avoided these women and children), and a body count, ‘40 extremists,’ that would make Jack Bauer blush.

“To the New York Times‘ credit, it did issue one of the most passive-aggressive ‘we could not independently verify these claims’ disclaimers in journalistic history:

“A Defense Department official said Islamic State fighters who defended their building and Abu Sayyaf tried to use women and children as shields, but that the Delta Force commandos ‘used very precise fire’ and ‘separated the women and children.’ The official said the operation involved close ‘hand-to-hand fighting.’ (The accounts of the raid came from military and government officials and could not be immediately verified through independent sources.)

“No, of course they couldn’t!

“Obviously, this is one of the limits of reporting on secret events in far-off, opaque war zones. Nonetheless, given that the last such politically loaded raid, on the bin Laden ‘compound’ in Pakistan, turned out to be full of White House lies -- to say nothing of Seymour Hersh’s recent, high-profile allegations that the entire thing was staged -- you’d think a bit of skepticism would be in order. But, in a world of mass information asymmetry,...

At a time when California faces one of the worst droughts on record, Nestlé is bottling water out of California’s springs, aquifers and national forests to sell for profit. Nestlé is unwilling to stop this practice—and even pumped water using a permit that expired 25 years ago.

We must ramp up the pressure on Nestlé—the poster child for corporate water abuse in California. Nestlé has two bottling plants in California—one in Los Angeles, and one in Sacramento. Please join us on Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. as we rally outside both bottling plants in Los Angeles and Sacramento!

WHAT: Statewide Day of Action against Nestlé
WHEN: Wednesday, May 20th at 11:00 a.m.
WHERE: Nestlé Waters North America; 1560 E 20th St in Los Angeles, 90011

CNN is telling you the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) is as good as passed, so you should just suck it up and get used to it. So nice of the Tme Warner Corporation to try to push this through its CNN hoop at the last second. What really would’ what really would’ve been comical, is if Miss Don Lemon had tried to advocate for the TPP. We, at least, would have enjoyed a ribald chuckle and an eye roll. ... See MoreSee Less

“Why, the Government is merely a servant - merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn’t. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.” - Mark Twain ... See MoreSee Less
