Get Smart

" Perhaps the biggest surprise from the cables is how hard everybody strives to meet the American test of fealty"



Hello Chief

Back when bumbling Maxwell Smart battled the forces of KAOS for CONTROL, he had a great deal of help from his competent partner Agent 99. Things were satirical then.



Chief Enchilada

Obama has taken some bruising lately so he is not feeling the current Wikileaks headlines in part because they dampen Hilary's yearnings for a brave new world come 2012 election cycle. The cougar from the capital is spinning faster than a whirling dervish not to out-perform Condoleessa's mushroom cloud moment. Here is why the might of an empire is firing on all pistons to put a happy ending on Wikileak's inroads to democracy and any cypherpunk that might get in their way.



Assange has been described by his mother, Christine, as "highly intelligent."

"We're in the middle of a long social experiment to see what we will put up with. The plutocrats keep asking for more, and we just give it to them. There is absolutely no push-back whatsoever. In fact, all we do is ask for more punishment and deprivation. The results of this experiment have been so startling to the plutocrats that they have until recently not asked for everything, in fear that perhaps they would awaken a sleeping giant of rebellion. Nope. No giant. Just sleeping. "



In the old days Top Secret stuff looked like this...


... today it looks like this.

"Supporters contend Assange represents free speech at its finest. They say he is a man and an organization committed to outing injustices.


Yet despite unrelenting global media attention, Assange has remained an enigmatic figure.



Wiki Drones

"The treatment of Julian Assange and Wikileaks is intended to be over-the-top, hypocritical, offensive, and outrageous ("wholly comparable to the kind of treatment doled out to dissidents in China or Burma"). He's supposed to end up executed in an American military prison. Wikileaks put a real scare into them, which explains the overreaction. They want us to be reminded of punishments in the Dark Ages. It is a lesson to anybody who might present any real challenge to power."




Spy VS Fly (on the wall)

Let's be clear, it is one thing to be a whistleblower but quite something else to be a traitor and spy such as the real Robert Hanssen:

Ramon Garcia was one of his code names. He thought he had been cautious, never giving Moscow his real name and never meeting with the KGB. But he had not been careful enough. His biggest mistake had been leaving his fingerprints on the plastic garbage bags in which he delivered state secrets. When his file was sold by a former KGB higher-up in September 2000, the FBI lab had asked for everything. Surprisingly, the Russians had kept the Hefty bags and once the prints had been dusted and traced, his fate was sealed.



Wikiwood Hills


"He always stood up for the underdog. I remember that, like with his school friends. He was always very angry about people ganging up on other people. He had a really good sense of equality and equity." Julian's father Brett Assange




When Julian Assange Met Sibel Edmonds

You can't make this stuff up:

"Julian Assange’s chief accuser in Sweden has a significant history of work with anti-Castro groups, at least one of which is US funded and openly supported by a former CIA agent convicted in the mass murder of seventy three Cubans on an airliner he was involved in blowing up."

Wiki Novels

This reads like a mexican soap-opera:

"Small world, isn’t it? Julian Assange is the human face of Wikileaks – the organization that’s enabled whistle-blowers to reveal hideous war crimes and expose much of America’s foreign policy to the world.

He just happens to meet a Swedish woman who just happens to have been publishing her work in a well-funded anti-Castro group that just happens to have links with a group led by a man at least one journalist describes as an agent of the CIA: the violent secret arm of America’s foreign policy.

And she just happens to have been expelled from Cuba, which just happens to be the global symbol of successful defiance of American foreign policy.

And – despite her work in Sweden upholding the human right of gender equity – in Cuba she just happens to end up associating with a group openly supported by an admitted CIA agent who himself committed mass murder when he actively participated in the terrorist bombing of a jetliner carrying a Cuban sports team…an act that was of a piece with America’s secret foreign policy of violent attacks against Cuban state interests.

And now she just happens – after admittedly consensual sex – to have gone to Swedish authorities to report the sex ended without a condom…which just happens to be the pretext for Interpol to issue a “Red Notice” informing the world’s police forces of charges against Julian Assange.

Who just happens to be the man America’s political class – the people who run America’s foreign policy – have been trying to silence. And who happens to be the man some of them have been calling to have murdered."




Bring It On

"Assange's mother said Wednesday that she feared her son had become "too smart for himself."

"I'm concerned it's gotten too big and the forces that he's challenging are too big," Christine Assange told the Herald Sun."



Wiki Wacky War

"The continuing non-reaction to the massive financial theft in Europe and the United States, where the thieves were not only not punished, but massively rewarded, was the final test. The only reason why we are not all slaves building pyramids to the glory of the plutocrats is that they, in their infinite generosity of spirit, haven't asked us yet. They will, and we'll start hauling rocks"




Wiki Tea

"The whole universe or the structure that perceives it is a worthy opponent, but try as I may I can not escape the sound of suffering. Perhaps as an old man I will take great comfort in pottering around in a lab and gently talking to students in the summer evening and will accept suffering with insouciance. But not now; men in their prime, if they have convictions are tasked to act on them." Julian Assange

Cheney, Toronto and thong bikinis



Mr Goef Yourself

While XVP Dick Cheney makes news in his coagulated retirement from global devastation , he is recovering from a gunky ticker perhaps in Dubai or Uruguay. As the current leaders of the sick world gather north of the border in radical Toronto Canada for the G-8 Gee-20 Summit, there is little sympathy here for Cheneys neo-con job war machine legacy as once ceo of oil dragon Helliburton.



Mr. I don't care about history

At the same time ex prez Gee W Bushed, another oily magnate, is nowhere near Maple Leafland pow-wow. Where is he exactly, why are these guys, who trashed america bigtime, so absent from the scrutiny of the press? Is it exactly this kind of "forward bygones thinking" that lets major league blundering criminals so off the hook. Can we accept the wacky Rumsfeld defense of the "unknown unknown" disclaimer? The answer is an anosgonosic yeah.




Can You Cannuk?

Canadians pride themselves on their maple syrup, civility and living north of the political demarcation that separates them from Amerikkka. They think we are crazed violent haters and we think they are slow frozen fruities. But the one thing we have in common is the onslaught of globalization, of the not so newworldorder that creepy papa Bush Sr. lauded with silent alarm years ago.



Lawful Assembly

As i write this canadian civilians are showing us how it is done, assembling their flesh and bones en mass at delineated public spaces in a show of solidarity and grave concern for a myriad of serious unresolved world-class economic and human rights problems. Thus far 500 people have been arrested.




Park Your Mouth Over There

But Canadadian activists are not much different than their American counterparts when it comes to standing up to the progress of oppression. One Montreal-based activist, Stefan Christoff, has come under harassment from the Canadian intelligence agency, CSIS.




Taking Our Leader to the Leaders

Being now the establishment, our Obama must play the part of tough leader of the free world and cool guy. He is the best we got to sit down with his political peers. He needs to be kept safe to solve every last single problem and future problems, one summit at a time.

Here are just a few pictures of Toronto "little people" and their robocops courtesy of Cryptome:







Flaunting Authority is hazardous to you behind...



Oops, how did this candid of our state leader get in here!

I ran, in the opposite direction



Scenes of Mayhem and Democracy.


This post would have been timely last week when the mainstream media giants were withholding information on the protests over the democratic elections in Iran. It took them a week to figure out how to spin the thing for some self-serving end.

Maybe they needed the advice of their keepers before acting.




Lawful Assembly Iranian Style.

The Iranian people are mad as hell and they are not going to take it anymore. The islamic revolution is working. The entrenched power structure is realizing that democracy has its devils. That the church/state is showing tolerance, restraint for a dissenting multitude is commendable. This level of maturity is something very new for the seemingly backward middle east cultures.



Hey, We Also Speak English Here!

So that we Americans here can get the full scope of the turmoil in Tehran, someone there has very conveniently provided protesters with English graphics. But was there any credentialed foreign journalists there last week? a few maybe. Did we see anything on TV ? not much really.




Heads will RocknRoll.

I have high hopes for the Iranian people. I never bought into the Bush era demonizing. Regular folk in Iran today are educated, affluent and not ubereligious. They are well positioned to propel the transformation of their country by peaceable means.

They definitely don't need us to meddle, cause when we do there is blow-back.




They don't call them DICK-tators for nothing.

But trust me, you have not seen the end of the irreversible irony that is Iran.




When your done bleeding, start reading.

The occasional cracked scull n rubber bullets are one thing, but...
