Political Ponerology: Harrison Koehli interviewed by Dustin Sunflower

Political Ponerology by Andrew Lobaczewski is a book I look forward to learning more about.

In this video, Editor Harrison Koehli of Red Pill Press is interviewed by Dustin Sunflower about the book's content. It is an audio file with descriptive titles added. "This is an extraordinary book."

The book is a look at psychopaths in political power. Political Ponerology is a study of the founders and supporters of oppressive political regimes. Lobaczewski's approach analyzes the common factors that lead to the propagation of man's inhumanity to man. Morality and humanism cannot long withstand the predations of this evil. Knowledge of its nature; and its insidious effect on both individuals and groups - is the only antidote.

Quick summary by me:
It's a book about psychopaths and their ways of thinking, what they do to get power, and what they do once they are in power. The psychopaths basically they have no emphaty. They think those that do display emphaty are not the normal ones. If anyone that stands in their way of sick thinking and actions is wrong. 1% of the population is psychopathic. They will praise the people above them, all the while scheming to stab them in the back in order to gain power.

Don't say you weren't warned. The CAP AND TRADE program is scam! Notice the increase in commodity energy prices? Where do you think the extra money is going? Into those criminal, scheming, scamming, pockets who want a cap and trade trading market full of derivatives and exotic paper trades. It's like Bechtel (remember them in Bolivia?) just moved into your town and doubled your energy prices.

Lindsey Williams: Crooks in Congress

Lindsey Williams shares statistics of deviant behavior by the Congressmen and women in the Summer of 2008. What does it say about the people that elect these rascals into office. What got me was over 100 had bankrupted 2 or more businesses. No wonder we're so doomed!

[Youtube] Lindsey Williams shares stats on deviant Congress (Summer 2008) Geneva Convention diregarded by Bush due to Fear of Prosecution for War Crimes

Here's the whole email I received from today:

Bush Feared Prosecution for War Crimes
In 2002, Gonzales urged Bush to protect them against "domestic criminal prosecution"

Because of the immense pressure brought by the Indict Bush movement, new revelations continue to come forth.

The Bush administration lied about the reason it decided to deprive detainees of Geneva Convention rights and protections. The real reason was that Bush and his lawyer decided that it was the best way to protect the President and other officials from criminal prosecution.

On January 11, 2002, the United States announced that it was refusing to abide by the 1949 Geneva Convention on the treatment of prisoners of war. The Third Geneva Convention, which provides specific guidelines for treatment of prisoner combatants, is a part of the "law of nations" and is a mainstay of international humanitarian law. The United States explained that the prisoners taken in Afghanistan and Pakistan were not actually prisoners of war, but were in fact "unlawful combatants."

The Bush administration always knew its programs were illegal and that they could be prosecuted for them. In January 2002, then-White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales advised Bush to deny prisoners of war protections under the Geneva Conventions. Doing so, Gonzales argued, "substantially reduces the threat of domestic criminal prosecution under the War Crimes Act" and "provides a solid defense to any future prosecution."

Bush's decision to end Geneva Convention protections sent a message to the U.S. military and intelligence services to commit war crimes. It was a decision that shocked many, including those within the military who rely on those protections for their own personnel.

Bush officials, in their supreme arrogance, believed they could just annul the laws they didn't like - that this would "provide a solid defense" when they left office.

You've probably never heard of this show before. It was a late night 'soap opera' that aired on UPN back in the late 1990s. It was rudely and prematurely canceled by UPN for low ratings. I guess mindless endeavors sell more. Anyways, here's a taste:

Dr. Sam Chachoua - Cancer Cure?

I saw this on the solari blog. There's not much info on this guy so I write this blog entry with some sense of suspicion and hesistation as there really isn't a full story.

Apparently, Dr. Sam Chachoua had a cure for cancer. The serum had viruses that would attach to cancer cells, marking them up for identification and destruction by the immune system. Currently, cancer cells cannot be identified by the immune system and that is why they are not attacked and destroyed.

Dr. Sam Chachoua won $10 million from Ceders-Sanai when they lost his serums and ended testing because it would've cured cancer and destroyed profits.

Now anyone can provide a small loan to an American entrepeneur looking to open or expand their small business. The candidates must already have been rejected by an established bank for reasons such as "not enough credit history", "no collateral", et cetera.

The Bicycle Project - Mumbai, India

The Bicycle Project

In villages located a around big cities, there are several children aged 6-16 years, walking an average of 2-7 kms a day, one way, to get an education. This is the generation that will bring about a change for the better – for their families, their villages, and who knows, maybe even their country and some day, the world!

Going to school is the most important thing for these kids – and they know that.

Which is why no distance is too long – and walking for hours is normal because missing school is not an option. These children’s families can’t even afford to send them by the local bus yet, whether rain or shine, blistering heat or freezing cold, these children do their best to get to school on time, every day.

What is The Bicycle Project?

We’re collecting your old bicycles, which are probably of little use to their owners and lie rusting on a terrace, or in a stairwell or garage. After
giving these bikes a new lease of life, we deliver them to tribal / village kids in and around Mumbai / Pune, in Maharashtra.

For Phase I of this project in Mumbai, we have identified 137 students from Sri Binoi Gharde Vidhalaya in Alone, Vikramgarh Taluka, District Thane, Mumbai. We have already delivered 68 bicycles to the students of this school. Once the target of 137 bicycles is over, we will move to the next village and its school.

For Phase I of this project in Pune, we have identified few schools around Pune District and plan to replicate Phase I in Mumbai.

How can you be a part of this project?

a) Open up a Collection Center – If you have space for storing 10-15 bicycles for a period of 4-6 weeks, you can open up the Collection Center of
the bicycles where the donors can drop their bicycles.
You will have to ensure that each donor fills out a form to accompany every bicycle, for our records.

b) Donate Bicycles – You can donate your old bicycles for this cause by dropping them at a conveniently located Collection Centre.

c) Donate Money – You can pay to fix up the old bicycles (1 or more, each costs Rs 500 to fix on an average )

d) Talk about The Bicycle Project – tell everyone you know about this project, put up the posters in your building society, school, office and in your friend’s buildings, talk to society secretaries and get permission to clear their old bikes, ask people if they have space to set up Collection Centres, offer to help us repair the bikes, etc.

Please find attached the poster with our contact details. You can call me on +91 99207 69666 (before 9 am or after 8 pm on weekdays and anytime on Sunday & holidays ). Alternatively you can send me SMS & will revert back to you. You can also drop me a mail as to how you want to get associated with this project.

Looking forward to your participation.

Help stop the war funding!

Jeremy Scahill has an article on his website detailing which Democratic Congressional Representatives are deciding to no longer provide funding for the war. Apparently, there's some disagreement over funding the IMF too! This list of Democrats is growing and you can help make it bigger!

"At the end of the day, the real issue here is: How many Democrats will actually stand up on principle to the funding of the wars, regardless of the bells and whistles the White House and Democratic Leadership attach or the threats they need to endure from their own party?

In order to block passage, 39 Democrats need to vote against it in the House. As of this writing, 34 reportedly are committed to voting against it. Jane Hamsher at Firedoglake has been doing great coverage of this issue, much of which can be found here. So too has David Swanson at AfterDowningStreet. This does seem to be one issue where phone calls and letters matter—tremendously. See where your representative stands here. As of this writing, these are the legislators who are reportedly leaning toward a “No” vote, but have not yet committed. They are the people most likely to be convinced by hearing from constituents"

Hyderabad India - Some pics from my trip - Summer of 2006

In the Summer of 2006, I took a 6 month trip to Hyderabad, India (and Bangalore) to take a boat load of IT courses. Out of this trip was born a flourishing career in the Cisco Voice field.

What is empire about? It's great for the select few who benefit from the loot. Who are the poor subjects who take the brunt impact of abject poverty? The majority of the world lives in squalor while a few party away. All around the world the rich subjugate poor.

I'm going to show some photos which I took in Hyderabad right here and contrast riches and poverty, both within a few yards of each other. The pictures create a linear panorama, starting with the southeast face and going around to the northeast side, thus creating a 300 degree view.

Who else thinks about this stuff on their trips?

They call this building the White House:

These 'bungalows are 3 stories high and worth about 3 crores rupees or $1 million each:

This is a picture of the empty lot directly below the white building pictured above:

Some empty areas are taken up by the poor who build temporary slum shelter. These get removed by the whim of the government when the local residents or businesses decide they want to pretty up the place, or if the land gets bought by a private party for development. If the land is already owned by a private party they may decide on removing the 'pests' This is pic 61:

View of the mosquito infested Taj Banjara hotel lake:

Here is a closeup of pic 61 (2nd one up from here) These are people living in abject poverty earning less than a dollar a day. One can imagine what would happen if a few pennies extra per day (in a form of higher wages) flow from the haves to the have nots?:

SUPER ZOOM near the Taj Banjara lake. The first pic shows a temple and a guy who bathes his buffalos in the lake everyday. The second pic shows Road 1, a main road full of shops in Banjara Hills:

John Perkins: Newsletter 06/14/209 - China Pollution

I got this newsletter from John Perkins today concerning China's pollution awareness and their reduction efforts.

I say let's make the USA #1 in clean use of energy and products. Let's make the goods production cycle a full cycle all the way from the factory to disposal. Remember, there is no "away". We need to change ourselves to remind ourselves to use less, conserve more, behave in a more responsible manner, and buy sustainability.

Anyways, here's the full newsletter:

From John Perkins

China: A Lesson in Transformation

Several times during my EHM tenure in the 1970s I stood on a hill in the New Territories outside Hong Kong and peered into China, a mysterious country I was not allowed to enter. China was locked behind a wall of secrecy. About all most of us knew was that the country was in shambles due to Mao’s Cultural Revolution.

I finally had the opportunity to visit China in June 2009.

No one back in the ‘70s believed that any country could sustain double digit economic growth for more than a couple of years and under no circumstances for a decade.

China accomplished the impossible. And then it did it again. And again. China’s economy mushroomed by an estimated ten-fold. In three decades, the most populous nation on the planet rose from the depths of poverty to become the symbol of what human determination – and capitalism – can accomplish.

We in the US seem to want to focus on China’s problems. People constantly point out the negatives, like its greenhouse gas levels recently surpassed ours (although on a per capita basis our emissions are five times greater than theirs). Driving toward my hotel in the modern Pudang district, I was certainly aware of the low-lying mist that I assumed was smog, but I have to say that I was most struck by something quite different: the profusion of trees. There were dozens of varieties of them, everywhere. Tall, short, deciduous, coniferous, some bursting with colors – red, pink, white, and yellow flowers – they covered a broad center strip that divided outgoing from incoming traffic, lined the sides of the highway, and stretched back as far as the eye could see. Many were tall; all seemed healthy – either naturally suited to the local conditions or pampered. Obviously planted, they were clustered in formations that brought to mind the formal gardens of Versailles. In addition to creating a most pleasant environment for mile upon mile, they performed another function, that of removing carbon dioxide from the air. It was my first inkling of China’s commitment to cleaning up its environment.

“Yes,” Mandy Zhang, an MBA student at the China Europe International Business School replied. CEIBS had brought me to Shanghai to speak at their Being Globally Responsible Conference and she was my host on my first evening at a restaurant near my hotel. “We are all very aware of the pollution our economic development has caused. We young people are especially determined to turn it around. Trees are one small part of the plan.”

Although the majority of the MBA students at CEIBS are Chinese, roughly 40 percent come from the United States, Europe, Latin America, and other parts of Asia. Their school was ranked among the top ten MBA programs in the world by the Financial Times in 2009 – along with Wharton, Harvard, Columbia, and Stanford.

Every time I asked them about the environment, the Chinese students agreed that cleaning it up was a priority. I was told again and again that it will happen. Economic growth had been the first goal; now the time had arrived to take care of the problems that rapid development had created. During the six days I was in Shanghai, the government announced that it would levy taxes against polluters, support a company that was developing electric cars by making plug-in stations available around much of the country, and offer rebates of approximately $4,000 (US) to customers who purchased those cars. “When the government says it will happen,” I was told time and again, “it will.”

The fact that roughly one sixth of the world’s population has turned itself so totally around in three decades signals hope for all of us. China is a land of many diverse cultures – ones that throughout history frequently fought each other; it has demonstrated the capacity we humans possess for uniting in order to realize a common cause.

Rather than fearing China or criticizing its pollution levels, we can draw on its remarkable example, encourage it to do better, and set our own goals of becoming greener than China at an even more rapid pace.

As my plane lifted off from Shanghai airport, I realized that my visit to China had inspired me with a new sense of hope. What a wonderful thing for all of us – and our children and grandchildren – if the new China motivates us in the US, and every other country, to compete to see who can become the most socially and environmentally responsible society on the planet.

Rainforest Action Network: Peru Is Murdering Amazon Protesters!

Sign a petition that will be faxed to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Yes, of course, her department supports oil exploration and exploitation, but here is your chance to show your opposition to such a policy.

In 2008, President Garcia created 99 laws designed to open up Peru's lands to multinational corporations for oil and gas exploration by executive order, bypassing Peru's Congress and any debate in Peru's democratic government.

While the Peruvian Congress reviews whether these executive orders are constitutional, tens of thousands of Indigenous peoples have been peacefully marching and blockading to prevent the rainforests they depend on from being exploited.

Then, several days ago, the violent crackdown began. In Bagua Grande, 1,400km north of Lima, several thousand indigenous peoples were forcibly dispersed by tear gas and real bullets, killing dozens of Indigenous protesters. Just yesterday, the Congress announced a suspension of two of the laws, but Indigenous leaders have signaled that their peaceful protests will continue until the laws are completely revoked.

Peru's President, Alan Garcia, says that in order to meet its Free Trade Agreement responsibilities to the United States Peru must prioritize the demands of international resource exploitation even as they undermine the land rights of Peru's Indigenous peoples.

And so far the US has been silent.

Act now and tell Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that the US needs take a stand and formally demand that Peru end the violence now.

Your message will be sent as an electronic fax to Secretary Clinton in order to maximize your impact!

Greg Palast: Grand Theft Auto Pension

Greg Palast writes of Grand Theft Auto Pension:

"I smell a rat.

Stevie the Rat, to be precise. Steven Rattner, Barack Obama's 'Car Czar' - the man who essentially ordered GM into bankruptcy this morning.

When a company goes bankrupt, everyone takes a hit: fair or not, workers lose some contract wages, stockholders get wiped out and creditors get fragments of what's left. That's the law. What workers don't lose are their pensions (including old-age health funds) already taken from their wages and held in their name.

But not this time. Stevie the Rat has a different plan for GM: grab the pension funds to pay off Morgan and Citi.

Here's the scheme: Rattner is demanding the bankruptcy court simply wipe away the money GM owes workers for their retirement health insurance. Cash in the insurance fund would be replaced by GM stock. The percentage may be 17% of GM's stock - or 25%. Whatever, 17% or 25% is worth, well ... just try paying for your dialysis with 50 shares of bankrupt auto stock.

Yet Citibank and Morgan, says Rattner, should get their whole enchilada - $6 billion right now and in cash - from a company that can't pay for auto parts or worker eye exams.

So what's wrong with seizing workers' pension fund money in a bankruptcy? The answer, Mr. Obama, Mr. Law Professor, is that it's illegal.

In 1974, after a series of scandalous take-downs of pension and retirement funds during the Nixon era, Congress passed the Employee Retirement Income Security Act. ERISA says you can't seize workers' pension funds (whether monthly payments or health insurance) any more than you can seize their private bank accounts. And that's because they are the same thing: workers give up wages in return for retirement benefits.

The law is darn explicit that grabbing pension money is a no-no. Company executives must hold these retirement funds as "fiduciaries." Here's the law, Professor Obama, as described on the government's own web site under the heading, "Health Plans and Benefits."

"The primary responsibility of fiduciaries is to run the plan solely in the interest of participants and beneficiaries and for the exclusive purpose of providing benefits."

Every business in America that runs short of cash would love to dip into retirement kitties, but it's not their money any more than a banker can seize your account when the bank's a little short. A plan's assets are for the plan's members only, not for Mr. Dimon nor Mr. Rubin.

Yet, in effect, the Obama Administration is demanding that money for an elderly auto worker's spleen should be siphoned off to feed the TARP babies. Workers go without lung transplants so Dimon and Rubin can pimp out their ride. This is another "Guantanamo" moment for the Obama Administration - channeling Nixon to endorse the preventive detention of retiree health insurance.

Filching GM's pension assets doesn't become legal because the cash due the fund is replaced with GM stock. Congress saw through that switch-a-roo by requiring that companies, as fiduciaries, must

"...act prudently and must diversify the plan's investments in order to minimize the risk of large losses."

By "diversify" for safety, the law does not mean put 100% of worker funds into a single busted company's stock."

Indians protest racist attacks in Melbourne Austalia

Leave it to Indians to make any place look like a train station exit in a few moments time :).

There must be some serious underlying issues to spark an angry protest like this on such short notice. Being ripped off by schools' marketing seems to be one of the causes of the frustration. I know first hand by taking classes in India that promises at Indian schools are more ample than the focus on a good, steady, professional program by the owners of the school. It's pay first and you "might get what we tell you to expect" type of a situation.
