Provocateur Cops Disguised As Anarchists At G20, Pittsburgh

From the Intelligence Daily:

Three undercover officers attempt to infiltrate a March Against Police Brutality at the University of Pittsburgh, but fail miserably due to their horrendous disguise attempts. During the march, one of them breaks a photographer’s camera. This is just one example of a larger pattern of attempts to silence the media during the G20 protests.

Video is kind of a comedy on both sides. The protesters seem to be ranting some kind of gibberish composed of Bob Dylan and N.W.A. albums (“Fuck the police”? “Remember Kent State”? How about trying “We’re all in this together against malevolent corporations who see all of us as slaves and whores and are hard at work ruining all of our lives, our species and the planet?”) Meanwhile, you gotta laugh at the anarchists who look like linebackers. Come on, kids. Y’all need to make friends just like Juggalos and Maggots.

It’s eight months into Obama’s administration, and not only is Guantanamo still open (and amid new revelations about doctors being used to facilitate torture procedures), but Obama is now attempting to open a new one in Afghanistan.

The Intelligence Daily reports:

On Monday, a day after the New York Times and the Washington Post reported that the Obama administration was planning to introduce tribunals for prisoners held at the US prison at Bagram airbase, Afghanistan, the reason for the specifically-timed leaks that led to the publication of the stories became clear.

The government was hoping that offering tribunals to evaluate the prisoners?

A six-year-old girl has become a media darling in China on her first day of school by expressing her aspiration to become a “corrupt official” when she grows up.

The young student stated her aspirations in a televised interview.

“When I grow up I want to be an official,” said the girl.

“What kind of official?” the interviewer asked. “A corrupt official because they have lots of stuff,” she replied.

When Getting Beaten By Your Husband Is A Pre-Existing Condition

In the latest annals of shameful and disgusting examples of humanity and health-insurance industry miserliness:

With the White House zeroing in on the insurance-industry practice of discriminating against clients based on pre-existing conditions, administration allies are calling attention to how broadly insurers interpret the term to maximize profits.

It turns out that in eight states, plus the District of Columbia, getting beaten up by your spouse is a pre-existing condition.

Under the cold logic of the insurance industry, it makes perfect sense: If you are in a marriage with someone who has beaten you in the past, you’re more likely to get beaten again than the average person and are therefore more expensive to insure.

Is this any better than public approval for stoning and killing “misbehaving” women in the parts of the world we profess to be at war with for, among other things, women’s rights?

No, no it is not.

Tea Baggers, Birthers and Juggalos!

Intrepid reporter, Max Blumenthal takes his camera to the streets as tens of thousands of highly suggestible Caucasians protest… um…whatever it is that they’re protesting. Some hilarious, albeit disturbing, moments here. I especially liked the guy with the “dipers” sign, it’s a stone classic of idiocy, even for this type of event.

Jason Louv hipped me to the fact that Tea Baggers and Birthers seem to be the adult(?) versions of—are you ready for this—THE JUGGALOS!!

How very, very true. That slayed me! See for yourself:

Sign Health Care Petition; Win at Life

Sign Obama’s petition to get your reps to back health care here, and win at life. And likely live a longer one.

Working state-run health care is the bare minimum for a functional, civilized 21st-century society. All you need to do is leave the U.S. for half a second to see how woefully, miserably behind the rest of the world we are, and just on bare minimum quality of life issues.

Also, all you have to do is take a quick trip to, say, Canada, to realize that state-supported health care, in general, produces people who are Fucking Hot. It’s not even funny.

Sign it, and strike a blow against ignorant Republican motherfuckers who want you to die young and live in misery while being dependent on corporations who don’t give two fucks about you or your life, and who also don’t want you to get laid by hot people! Help bring America up to speed with reality instead of regressive corporate troglodytism! Help your fellow wo/man!

Tell Your Members of Congress to Support President Obama’s Plan for Health Reform

(If you get why the above picture is funny, you really are going to hell.)
