I do see a lot of this reported on PBS during their one hour in depth reporting, where a lot which doesn’t get discussed on mass media gets discussed there. An example is the NFL concussion studies, which it was reported that the NFL paid a massive amount of money to keep discussion of the book off of mass media (especially ESPN.) The discussion on drones, mass surveillance, etc. was also discussed there in depth as was the media’s mistake of not getting behind it much sooner because they were being strong-armed by the CIA and NSA into holding it back.
You are to kind, it was much worse. Those sternografs from the msm were not only hiding the reality, they discussed not only at the beginning and in parts till today the official bs from the talkingpoint list https://s3.amazonaws.com/s3.documentcloud.org/documents/813055/nsa-talking-points.pdf , the so called journalists tried to attack MrSnowden or the journalists and media outlets which were working with the Snowdenfiles directly with the usual bs like “blood on your hands”, “Spy”, “Traitor”…

That is shameful and we should not be shy to speak about what parts of the msm especially in the US/UK did. Don´t know if you have heard from Geschwister Scholl, but at that time people were also calling for their political prosecution like John and his “sources” did and are doing in the case of MrSnowden or Assange to name two. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geschwister_Scholl Funny enough look at who has won 2014 the Geschwister Scholl Preis. BBC is only one example for the msm https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-moGtQFvsVU

I’d like a Progressive Party Bill Of Rights (or add one to the Democratic party) that holds that its members must support the following:

1. No death penalty

2. All civil rights legislation supporting minorities, regardless of culture, religion, gender, race, sexual orientation or class

3. Environmentalism- being against fracking, taking drug ad and fossil fuel adds off of TV. Cleaning up of superfund sites and holding companies like DuPont, Monsanto, Dow, etc.- responsible for the damage they’ve caused

4. Single payer health care and lowering the price of pharmaceutical drugs

5. Responsible farming- no use of hormones or growth promoting antibiotics on lifestock as well as their welfare (free range.)

7. Public funding of campaigns, remove Citizens United through legislation, lessen and eventually remove lobbying from politics, place spending limits and end superpacs.

8. Support higher funding for science research and education

9. Lower and eventually remove tuition costs at public colleges and universities through Wall Street taxation as well as taxes on unhealthy soft drinks, alcohol, fast food, cigarettes, etc.

10. National minimum wage at $15 an hour

11. Make sure offshore tax shelters and loopholes for the aristocrats are removed so they pay their fair share to improve infrastructure but don’t raise taxes on the middle class.

12. Legalize marijuana but have tougher regulations against prescription pain killers, antidepressants, sleeping drugs and antianxiety and psychotropic drugs being used in institutions to place people in a stupor.

13. Lessen the burden on the criminal justice system and make drug abuse not a crime but treat it as the disease that it is.

14. Change the current pharmaceutical industry business model that lets them bribe doctors to prescribe more drugs, change it from a capitalist based system to a more scientific-social based one.

15. More clean energy, with the addition of nuclear fission power plants, rather than nat gas (fission is a better bridge than gas) with funding of research into controllable nuclear fusion- the fuel of the future.

Well, in this case the people in Guatemala (774 of them) being tested on had no idea they were intentionally being infected with needles with syphilis and it was done at the behest of Bristol Squibb Pharmaceuticals and Johns Hopkins Hospital for which they are now being sued for $1 Billion. I don’t believe in “evil” however I do believe that humans have certain built in weaknesses that need to be controlled (or punished if you will.) I support law suits like these because this is a way to get back at powerful people where it really hurts them. The Tuskeegee experiments were a similar case.

The companies doing it were based here. I have a similar tolerance, but my tolerance goes in the other direction, I don’t blame people in third world countries from hating the West or even resorting to violence to get back at us- sometimes violence seems like the only answer, the only one that gets them the attention that they need. I look at it this way, we’ve taken so many of their lives through colonization, conquest, etc.- what they take from us is minute in comparison and eventually things WILL even out- that’s the way nature works.

I also believe that science and capitalism MUST be kept apart, as there is way too much room for conflict of interest (for example Monsanto funding their own studies, even after the Agent Orange fiasco.) I like how in the Freedom of Information Act we can now find the sponsors of any researcher to see what kind of a bias they have, which corporation funded their research, so we can see how they reach their conclusions.

I take a similar (dim) view of companies like Dupont dumping toxic chemicals in superfund sites and not warning their own employees of the risks, those employees getting cancer or giving birth to babies with birth defects and similarly, those downwind of the superfund sites also having issues. In the specific case of PFOA, DuPont had a newer safer substance they could use, but held back for decades, because it was “too expensive.” This is why I don’t believe science and capitalism can mix. A large lawsuit put an end to the problems here too. The fossil fuel industry is another example, as well as the pharmaceutical industry and some of their big coverups (like Merck with Vioxx) and how company execs end up on the boards of regulatory agencies (like Merck and Monsanto officials at the FDA and USDA for example- recently being convicted of giving agency employees paid vacation trips in return for favors.)

What people did in the Ancient cultures you mentioned was done in the context of their own cultures which I have much less of a problem with. As a non-interventionist I have a much larger problem when people from corporations or militaries from the West go into other regions and interfere with them, as I outlined above. I believe in the Prime Directive (in a local sense) do NOT interfere with other cultures or take advantage of them in any way. One of the reasons I have no love for the British or any other European colonials.

I remember reading how much of a hassle the British and Americans gave them even before publication, as well as other whistleblowers who came before them whose homes were ransacked and their relatives threatened. This is a whole philosophy of militarization where regular civilians are treated as the “enemy” by a paranoid government. You know how they say “If you are doing nothing wrong you have nothing to hide” when talking about justifying mass surveillance? We can apply the same thing to THEM and do surveillance on them too. If they are doing nothing wrong, these governments should have nothing to hide, right?

 

I do know why. Actually it is not necessary to see the re-enactment of killings, I have just finished watching this interview with Joshua Oppenheimer. There is much information there.

The Act of Killing, Documentary with Filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer

The same killings were repeated in 1998, although to a much smaller scale. It’s also repeated in East Timor. It’s so evil.

Freedom of press, freedom to pervert the course of justice.
Wow, why are they doing this? I see the U.N. doesn’t go screaming about it, of course they have their own scandals to deal with, like French peacekeepers assaulting young girls in Central Africa and the UN busy covering it up!

In a newly unearthed audio interview Hillary Clinton reveals how she managed to get a plea bargain for a man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl – and shockingly laughs as she indicated she knew he may have been guilty.

During the course of the conversation which dates from the early 1980s, Clinton, then 27, outlines how she used a mistake by the prosecution to get 41-year-old Thomas Alfred Taylor to walk free.

Indeed, so cavalier is her attitude to securing the freedom of a man suspected of raping a child that the shocking and candid interview may tarnish her role as an advocate for women and children in the United States.

The recordings which date from 1983-1987 were discovered by the Washington Free Beacon and are of Clinton recalling her role in the most important criminal case of her career.

In 2008 at the height of her primary battle with Barack Obama, a Newsday story focused on Clinton’s deeply controversial strategy of attacking the credibility of the girl.

‘Rodham, records show, questioned the sixth grader’s honesty and claimed she had made false accusations in the past. She implied that the girl often fantasized and sought out ‘older men’ like Taylor, according to a July 1975 affidavit signed ‘Hillary D. Rodham’ ‘in compact cursive,’ wrote Newsday.

In 1975, the year she married Bill, Clinton was the court appointed attorney for Thomas Alfred Taylor.

The frontrunner for the 2016 presidential race goes into detail over five hours with Arkansas reporter Roy Reed during the interview, which was intended for an Esquire magazine profile that was never published.

Clinton describes Taylor as ‘one of those rootless folks’ and claims that the trial was a ‘really interesting case.’

Taylor was accused of raping the 12-year-old girl in May, 1975, in Springdale, Arkansas.

The girl was a family friend and Clinton has acknowledged in her past 2003 memoir, Living History, the difficulties the case provided her having just moved to Fayetteville. to run the University of Arkansas’ new legal aid clinic.

‘This guy was accused of raping a 12-year-old. Course he claimed that he didn’t, and all this stuff,’ says Clinton.

However, what is most shocking is the breezy manner in which she discusses her clients crime and the offhand way in which she questions his innocence.

‘I had him take a polygraph, which he passed – which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs,’ she says with a laugh.

Indeed, Clinton laughs during several different parts of the interview – especially when she discusses the forensic lab destroying key evidence – which led to Taylor getting away with the crime.

But, Ronald Rotunda, a professor of legal ethics at Chapman University, told the Washington Free Beacon. ‘We don’t have to believe the client is innocent…our job is to represent the client in the best way we can within the bounds of the law.’

However, he did raise the possibility that Clinton may have breached the attorney-client privilege by discussing the case so openly.

‘You can’t do that,’ he said. ‘Unless the client says: ‘You’re free to tell people that you really think I’m a scumbag, and the only reason I got a lighter sentence is because you’re a really clever lawyer.’

Taylor was accused of plying the girl with whisky and coke and raping her in his car that evening.

Part of the prosecution case against him was the testimony of the girl, two witnesses who saw them together and a ‘pair of men’s undershorts taken from the defendant herein.’

Crucially, even though Clinton was attacking the credibility of the girl’s character, it was the underwear that allowed her client to walk free.

‘You know, what was sad about it,’ Clinton told Reed, ‘was that the prosecutor had evidence, among which was Taylor’s underwear, which was bloody.’

However, the crime investigation lab failed to handle the evidence correctly.

‘The crime lab took the pair of underpants, neatly cut out the part that they were gonna test, tested it, came back with the result of what kind of blood it was what was mixed in with it – then sent the pants back with the hole in it to evidence,’ said Clinton.

‘Of course the crime lab had thrown away the piece they had cut out.’

Jumping on this error, Clinton had the underwear taken to a renowned New York City forensic expert for confirmation that this evidence was now compromised.

‘The story through the grape vine was that if you could get this investigator interested in the case then you had the foremost expert in the world willing to testify, so maybe it came out the way you wanted it to come out,’ she said.

‘Well this guy’s ready to come from New York to prevent this miscarriage of justice,’ said a laughing Clinton on the tape describing her conversation with the Arkansas prosecutor.

In his opinion there was not enough blood on it to test and this ultimately caused Judge Maupin Cummings to decide that offering Taylor a plea deal would be the best option.

Taylor, who died in 1992, pleaded guilty to unlawful fondling of a child and was sentenced to one year in prison, which was reduced to two months for time served.

However, her cavalier attitude to the rape case comes just over six months after she was honored by the Children’s Defense Fund at its 40th anniversary soiree last September at the Kennedy Center.

And, ironically, the trial was instrumental in Clinton co-founding the first rape crisis hotline in Fayetteville.

But not once in the interview with Reed does Clinton mention the hotline she set up or the impact of the case on the 12-year-old girl.

The Free Beacon tracked down the victim, now aged 52, who still lives in Fayettevile.

She said that she was divorced and an addict to methamphetamines and was in prison for check forgery to pay for her drugs.

She expressed hostility towards Clinton for getting her rapist off and said her life has been miserable since.
