12 03 2021

We greive over this horrific story of people swept up with no trial and tortured and imprisoned for years.  Now we see this is authrized too for US citizens.

This new film showcases the whole issue



Guantanamo Diary

Files we saved –

This document clearly specifies that the abusive interrogation techniques to be used at Guatanamo Bay prison (JTF GTMO) are based upon the US military’s Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escap (SERE) program,_2002

We were going to bludgeon the NY Times but Greenwald and Kunstler beat us to it 👊

16 02 2021

The gray lady looks to be flailing away lately as their false ‘wha-hoppened?’ narrative flounders on the rocks. So deserving of a post-selection beat down …. but we were nipped at the wire by James Howard Kunstler and Glenn Greenwald.


James Howard Kunstler

The New York Times fired forty-year veteran science reporter Donald G. McNeil, Jr., for using the freighted word “n*gg*r” while answering a student’s question about the history of the word’s usage, just as I am explaining his use of it in the incident at issue — that is, academically.

Though Mr. McNeil’s intent was incontrovertibly innocent as viewed by persons not insane — including, only briefly, the paper’s executive editor Dean Baquet — the decision to not sack Mr. McNeil provoked a reflexive uproar among the Times’s staff, as something in the wind might provoke a flight of grasshoppers transforming into a swarm of locusts, and Mr. Baquet reversed himself, forcing Mr. McNeil to choose demotion or resignation. Then, to make matters worse, the Times’s publisher, AG Sulzberger, spiked a column by nominally “conservative” op-ed writer Bret Stephens that attempted to argue some legalistic points about intent in the conduct of a witch hunt, an apparent affront to the Times’s witch-hunters, who seem to prefer their witch-hunting as a straight-up blood sport.”

Let’s talk about China’s “influence” on US leaders

10 12 2020

We thought this issue was about sleazy Joe Biden and Hunter’s laptop that showed China’s CPP had Joe in its hip pocket.

We have a lot of items on the infamous laptop on the 971 Blog.

We had an earlier story about Glenn Greenwald covering the laptop story and getting censored over the story. And we have this post – Glenn Greenwald Resigns from “The Intercept” Because of Censorship of his Joe & Hunter Biden Article; Greenwald Co-founded “The Intercept” in 2013

He has a new item out that deserves wide reading:

The Hunter Biden Criminal Probe Bolsters a Chinese Scholar’s Claim About Beijing’s Influence With the Biden AdministrationProfessor Di Dongsheng says China’s close ties to Wall Street and its dealings with Hunter both enable it to exert more power now than it could under Trump.

” . . China’s ability to get its way in Washington has long depended upon its numerous powerful Wall Street allies. But those allies, he said, had difficulty controlling Trump, but will exert virtually unfettered power over Biden. “


And we see this news making the rounds . . . CNN’s Fareed Zakaria turns out to be a CCP stooge.

Clarion News

“The conference, themed “Huge Shake-up, Big Test, Great Cooperation: China’s New Journey toward Modernization and Building a Community with a Shared Future for Mankind,” argued for increased cooperation between the Chinese Communist Party and the broader world.”

Glenn Greenwald on resigning from his own publication due to censorship


Article on Joe and Hunter Biden Censored By The Intercept
An attempt to assess the importance of the known evidence, and a critique of media lies to protect their favored candidate, could not be published at The Intercept…

My Resignation From The Intercept
The same trends of repression, censorship and ideological homogeneity plaguing the national press generally have engulfed the media outlet I co-founded, culminating in censorship of my own articles.
Today I sent my intention to resign from The Intercept, the news outlet I co-founded in 2013 with Jeremy Scahill and Laura Poitras, as well as from its parent company First Look Media.

FBI – The Terror Factory + Chicago Police’s “black site”

27 02 2015

Why Does the FBI Have to Manufacture its Own Plots if Terrorism and ISIS Are Such Grave Threats?

By Glenn Greenwald

“The FBI and major media outlets yesterday trumpeted the agency’s latest counterterrorism triumph: the arrest of three Brooklyn men, ages 19 to 30, on charges of conspiring to travel to Syria to fight for ISIS (photo of joint FBI/NYPD press conference, above). As my colleague Murtaza Hussain ably documents“it appears that none of the three men was in any condition to travel or support the Islamic State, without help from the FBI informant.” One of the frightening terrorist villains told the FBI informant that, beyond having no money, he had encountered a significant problem in following through on the FBI’s plot: his mom had taken away his passport. Noting the bizarre and unhinged ranting of one of the suspects, Hussain noted on Twitter that this case “sounds like another victory for the FBI over the mentally ill.

In this regard, this latest arrest appears to be quite similar to the overwhelming majority of terrorism arrests the FBI has proudly touted over the last decade.”   . . .  (more)

Boing Boing First-hand reports of torture from Homan Square, Chicago PD’s “black site”

“. . . In the wake of last week’s revelations about Homan Square, the off-the-books “black site” where Chicago PD disappear prisoners for violent, aggressive interrogation, four of the site’s victims have come forward to describe the highly racialized human rights abuses at the secret site. . . “

“. . . . Three other men, Kory Wright, Deandre Hutcherson and David Smith, have also told the Guardian they were held in 2006 inside Homan Square, where they say they were handcuffed by both wrists with their arms spread. Hutcherson says he was punched in the face while in this position, before an officer stepped on his groin “like he was putting a cigarette out”.”
