4 December 2016. DAPL Stopped… FOR NOW… Will Trump Reverse the Order?

There’s much glee about the supposed rerouting of the DAPL by the Army Corps of Engineers. I’d say that it’s much too early to break out the bubbly. Trump will take office in six weeks, and he’s got his own money invested in the pipeline. Furthermore, he’s an asshat who enjoys suckerpunching people. Therefore, just because Obama and the Corps of Engineers rejected the present route, doesn’t mean that Trump won’t reverse that order. There’s no call for any celebration yet. It’s time to organise… for when the plug-uglies pull a fast one (it’s not a question of “if”). Besides, the Corps didn’t nix the pipeline, it merely rerouted it, which means that DAPL is still a threat to the environment. I’d point up that’s there’s no call for joy in Mudville, yet. There’s every chance that the oligarchs are planning a riposte, with their boy in office. Have a care… the times are evil…

The First Nations won a reprieve for the time being, not a lasting victory (sad to say).

30 October 2016. What’s Wrong With This Picture? The Bundys Get Off Scot-Free for Armed Rebellion… Natives Get Tasered for Expressing Free Speech

00-usa-wounded-knee-120916

The First Nations are defending their land again… the MSM refuses to cover their struggle. They’re too busy covering the lawless Bundys and their worthless scummer partners-in-crime. That’s why I HATE “conservatism”… it defends demented “religious” Yahoos with guns and it attacks natives defending sacred land. I’m not the only person to call that evil.

____________________________________

This is a disgrace. The Bundys and their demented allies took over public facilities on public land by force, using arms. Native American protestors unite against a pipeline that threatens traditional sacred land. The Bundys got off scot-free for their lawless and anarchic behaviour… the Mormon Church (the Bundys are Mormons… why is that no surprise?) refuses to condemn them for their criminality. In contrast, the pipeline company sics attack dogs on the protestors, has its rent-a-cops taser them, and has the real cops arrest them (the protestors are often locked into dog kennels, reputable reports say).

What’s wrong with this picture? Note well that the drooling “conservative” crowd defends the gun-nutter Know Nothings and attacks the First Nation people. I hate “conservatism” more with each passing day. I especially despise their smarmy religiosity… as they have an amoral lack of any scruple when it comes to self-aggrandisement and self-enrichment. (Orthodox people… if you wonder why I hate Whiteford and Dreher so… that’s why). The Bundys engaged in a planned armed rebellion against the state. The Natives engage in spontaneous self-defence of traditional sacred land. I see a difference here… a vast difference.

I didn’t think that I could hate “conservatism” with a greater intensity… I was wrong. The world won’t be safe until we drive a stake into the heart of this infernal and diabolical ideology. Remember… “greed is good”… “winning is the only thing”… I’ve got to find a corner to be sick in…

Miners from the Western Ukraine Stage Protest in Kiev

00 Donetsk. Monument to the Coal Miner. 31.08.14.

____________________________

On Wednesday, at least 1,000 miners staged a protest action at government buildings in Kiev. Workers from Lvov and Volyn Oblasts in the Western Ukraine took part in the rally. Coal miner union members demanded that the state amend the law “On Ukraine’s State Budget for 2015”, to include spending for stable work and development for the coal industry, labour protection, and wages for miners. The protest action participants drummed their helmets on government buildings’ concrete fences, carrying placards, “Tax on Miners’ Pensions… Government’s Disgrace”, “No to Shutdown of Mines”, “Our Coal… to Power Stations of the Western Region”, “State Without Coal… People without Electric Power”, shouting “Shame”. The protesters said that they have “haven’t been paid their wages since November”. They also demanded the return of cancelled social benefits. The rally participants refused to disperse, saying that they’d continue their action near the Ukrainian President’s building on Thursday.

The SKP opened a criminal case against former Defence Minister Serdyukov on charges of corruption, duelling demonstrations took place in Kiev on the Maidan, both pro- and anti-EU, and a pavilion shaped like a Louis Vuitton suitcase appeared on Red Square, only to disappear within the week, its future site still unknown at present.
