AE Donation Drive

Please help keep AE up and running if you can.

My situation has changed a bit. I now have legal representation and I plan to fight this wrongful SSD decision tooth and nail.

But I am still receiving no support from disability. Anything you can do to help with my desperate situation would be appreciated. Hopefully next month I will get a favorable decision from the review board and it doesn’t go back to this reactionary activist Administrative Law Judge who rendered this decision in the first place.

Thank you all so much

I’m Free!! yea… and there was great rejoicing

by Scott Creighton

Hi guys. I am back from my short stay at the hospital. Everything went alright. Seems like I had a small embolism in my right lung but remarkably, my PT/INR is still therapeutic somehow… so it wasn’t all that bad. I’ve gained some weight (so they claim, lying bastards) and my cholesterol is kinda high (is 187 really high? really?) so they gave me a script for that. Plus now I have to wear a compression stocking. I hear they come in fashionable looks these days. I want one that reads “Google Building 7” There’s an idea: conspiracy theory compression stockings. I like it.

Or how about one that looks like a big open wound on my calf? That would be cool. Or one that looks like a sock with a kilo of coke in it. I could wear that one to the airport. Or one that looks like a little drop-gun holstered on my leg. I could wear that one to the courthouse. Just think of the fun you could have with those.

Anyway, thank you all for the support and the comments on the other thread. I couldn’t reply with my phone at the hospital but I did read them and it was nice too see folks care about you when your feeling a bit low like I was. It meant a lot.

I’ll be back at it later today. Gotta get some rest without having someone wake me up every hour for a test or some blood (what do they do with all that blood anyway?) or a probe (do they really have to probe you like that or were they just messing with me?) so I’m taking a nap. Will be back soon. Thanks again guys.


Heading Off to the Hospital for Some Tests

by Scott Creighton

Just a quick note:

I’m heading off to the hospital for some tests. Been having chest pains and swelling in my legs for a couple nights now and it got pretty bad last night. Since I was kicked off disability, I can’t get my PT/INR tests so I know I’m not therapeutic anymore and this is just a foreseeable result of that judges decision. I don’t know if I will be admitted or not so I might be back this afternoon or I might be back in a couple days. I haven’t had a chance to send thank you notes to donors and I’m sorry about that and will do it first thing when I get back. Hang in there folks and try not to worry too much about the election. We’re fucked either way and there’s a kind of calming resolve to that fact when you think about it. Calming or numbing. Whichever applies. Neoliberal fascist Trump or neoliberal fascist Killary. Same same. Not a dimes worth of difference someone once said and sadly, that’s our fate for the next four years. So sit back and watch the fireworks. I’ll see you in a few hours or days. Take care.

Russia Sells Out Syria: Proposes Federalization of the Country and Busting Off A Piece for Greater Kurdistan (Rojava)

by Scott Creighton (H/T Penny)

(first a little background)

Well, I hate too say I told you so.

“Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has insisted just the other day that Syrian Kurds be allowed to participate in the next round of peace talks. Apparently Russia wants to help the Kurds (our new beloved Freedom Fighters) break off a piece of a sovereign nation for themselves.” Scott Creighton April 2016

In fact, I’ve told you many times.

Russia Sells Out Syria – Opens Syrian Kurdistan NGO Offices in Moscow as Balkinization Process Begins Feb. 2016

Even provided nifty graphics, this one from Ekurd (who got mad at me for writing about the “Bust Off a Piece of Syria” plan before they were ready to go public):

Over at Penny’s place (Penny for Your Thoughts) she has posted an article about Syria rejecting a Russian proposal for Kurdish federation. According to the new proposal, three cantons would be federalized as sovereign territory for the Kurds: Jazeera, Kobani and Afrin. As it just so happens, those three cantons just happen to make up what the Kurds refer to as “Rojava” or… “Western Kurdistan” as seen in the image above. You will notice a piece of Turkey is “Northern Kurdistan” a piece of Iraq is “Southern Kurdistan” and that leaves one more, if you follow the logic, and that is “Eastern Kurdistan” which will have to be scratched from a little existing country in the Middle East called “Iran”

Here’s what Wiki says about “Rojava”

‘Intl community still financing & protecting terrorists’ – Mother Agnes and journalist Vanessa Beeley on Syria

AT&T Is Spying on Americans for Profit, New Documents Reveal

from The Daily Beast

The telecom giant is doing NSA-style work for law enforcement—without a warrant—and earning millions of dollars a year from taxpayers.

… “The Government agency agrees not to use the data as evidence in any judicial or administrative proceedings unless there is no other available and admissible probative evidence,” it says.

But those charged with a crime are entitled to know the evidence against them come trial. Adam Schwartz, staff attorney for activist group Electronic Frontier Foundation, said that means AT&T may leave investigators no choice but to construct a false investigative narrative to hide how they use Hemisphere if they plan to prosecute anyone.

Once AT&T provides a lead through Hemisphere, then investigators use routine police work, like getting a court order for a wiretap or following a suspect around, to provide the same evidence for the purpose of prosecution. This is known as “parallel construction.”

“This document here is striking,” Schwartz told The Daily Beast. “I’ve seen documents produced by the government regarding Hemisphere, but this is the first time I’ve seen an AT&T document which requires parallel construction in a service to government. It’s very troubling and not the way law enforcement should work in this country.”

The federal government reimburses municipalities for the expense of Hemisphere through the same grant program that is blamed for police militarization by paying for military gear like Bearcat vehicles.

“At a minimum there is a very serious question whether they should be doing it without a warrant. A benefit to the parallel construction is they never have to face that crucible. Then the judge, the defendant, the general public, the media, and elected officials never know that AT&T and police across America funded by the White House are using the world’s largest metadata database to surveil people,” Schwartz said…

Glenn Beck Brings His Special Emoting Superpowers to Bear on Donald Trump (no Vicks Vapor Rub crying tricks needed)

by Scott Creighton

For the small sliver of folks still watching Glenn Beck, perhaps this might have some tiny effect on the current presidential contest. But I doubt it. He has previously  suggested voting for Democrat Hillary Clinton could be a “moral, ethical choice.”

The other day on Charlie Rose, Glenn Beck, a man who used Vicks Vapor Rub on is own eyes so he could fake a real emotional experience for the benefit of his audience (and his wallet), said of Trump

“Have you seen him, during the last year and a half, truly feel for someone that couldn’t help him? Truly connect on a human level and say, ‘This has made me stop. This has made me think. I’m deeply sorry for what I have said?’ Frightening,” Glenn Beck

When he said those words he used his “quiet, reflective, starring off into space going deep into the human condition voice”. It was like he was doing a bad impersonation of Gene Wilder in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. You know, the good one.

The insincerity dripping from his performance is palpable, unmistakable, self-evident. It would be offensive coming from a 10-year-old much less someone of his advanced years. It’s as if he’s trying to give The Donald an acting lesson and in a sense that is exactly what he’s trying to do. Only, Glenn Beck sucks at acting.

“Instant sadness” says one of his little helpers in the photo shoot as Glenn pretends he’s crying while the Vapor Rub bombards his eyes with their… well their vapors. It’s almost as if old Glenn here can’t truly connect on a human level with anyone or anything outside of himself. So he needs a little help from cheap stage tricks.

Pete Santilli (I know, I know… sorry) did a show about a year ago when Glenn here decided to do his part in helping to bring into the country a bunch of “Syrian refugees” complete with all those military aged men with their fake Syrian passports. It was a big thing for the supporters of the NWO and Glenn stepped up to the plate to help them out. What did he use to help advance the cause? His special emoting superpowers.

Now, I hate Santilli. He’s a far-right commie-hater of the first order but he does make a good observation about the “refugee” crisis and that is these people are being shipped into socialist countries across Europe in order to destabilize them, turn folks more rabidly xenophobic and “push them right over the edge”. And on that point, he’s right on target.

And now for the end-all-be-all of bad Glenn Beck theater:

My point is this: Glenn Beck wouldn’t know a real human emotion if it walked up and fired him from yet another network show.

The only thing Glenn Beck feels is whatever at the moment looks like it might benefit Glenn Beck’s personal financial statements and that’s it.

Beck is constantly trying to stake out a position that aligns him with power. He has always done that and he always will do that. And for some stupid reason he thinks his most marketable asset is his performance chops. Talk about having a deluded sense of one’s self. How could he have ever watched a single video of one of his performances and not wanted to retire from public life forever? Oh yeah… he then goes and looks at his bank statements and comes to realize a sucker is born every minute.

So to Glenn Beck these days is working it for his own personal gain. By trying to advance the cause of Killary’s coronation, Beck is looking to ride that gravy train right back into relevance station. What a worm of a man. A perfect match for Hillary I might add.

It is kind of funny watching him emote. Watching him reach for the stars like his mortgage depends on it. It’s also kinda funny watching him chastise Trump for not having his special emoting superpowers and being able to call upon them at times when it best suits his own financial interests.

Sorry but I think there might be a definition of ‘sociopath’ in that evaluation I just gave. Let me work up some tears and I’ll do a video on it. Anyone got any Vicks?

p.s. Glenn Beck is a perfect surrogate for Hillary Clinton by the way.

60 civilians killed, 200 injured as US-led coalition strikes Mosul residential areas – Russian MoD

(Since we left a corridor open for “ISIS” to use and they have left the building like Elvis, who exactly are we bombing in Mosul? Same people we’ve been bombing in Mosul since 2004. The people of Mosul)

from RT

Over 60 civilians have been killed and at least 200 injured during three days of US-led coalition airstrikes on residential areas in Mosul, the Russian military reported.

There were numerous attacks of the US-led coalition targeting residential areas, schools, and other civilian objects both in Mosul and in other parts of the Iraqi Nineveh Governorate,” Gen. Sergey Rudskoy, head of Operations in the Russian General Staff, told journalists on Tuesday.

We are closely monitoring the situation around Mosul. So far we see no substantial progress in liberating this city from the terrorists of ISIS,” he added, referring to the terrorist organization Islamic State by its former name.
