Clinton Foundation Donors Got Weapons Deals From Hillary Clinton's State Department
fuuuuuuuuuck this and fuck "no comment"

coming out of the "favor bank": hundreds of billions of dollars' worth of weapons, fighter jets, biochemical agents

"Under federal law, foreign governments seeking State Department clearance to buy American-made arms are barred from making campaign contributions -- a prohibition aimed at preventing foreign interests from using cash to influence national security policy. But nothing prevents them from contributing to a philanthropic foundation controlled by policymakers."

dunno if I really want to create a pinboard tag for "american_defense_contractors" ... but maybe I should ... hummm

The Marshall Islands, once a U.S. nuclear test site, face oblivion again | The Washington Post
"'For four bullets into a tree in Iraq, they could fix this place.'"
"In 1954, the 'Castle Bravo' test... detonated with 1,000 times the force of the Hiroshima explosion. It hurled into the sky a massive plume of pulverized coral that drifted eastward and fell like ashy snowflakes on the people of Rongelap and Utirik atolls. Several days after Bravo, after children had eaten the ash, ..."
"In 2001, an independent nuclear-claims tribunal awarded the RMI $2.3 billion in health and property damages, but there was no mechanism to force the United States to pay it."
"Half the residents of Ebeye are under 20 years old, and a third are unemployed. The island has been called 'the slum of the Pacific.'"
"DeBrum then railed against nations that are modernizing their arsenals, a trend that he and other nations say is a violation of the grand bargain of the treaty... The United States is extending the life of its warheads, shrinking but updating its weapons infrastructure, and planning to construct a new fleet of submarines with nuclear-armed missiles.

"The price tag on this modernization plan? One trillion dollars over the next 30 years... Even though the United States has reduced its stockpile by 86 percent from its Cold War high, this reinvestment in nuclear arms doesn’t sit well with a poor island nation that has actually felt what nuclear war would be like."

This Weird Person Might Save You From Online Harassment — Backchannel — Medium
"This is someone who cares, but who doesn't care if others agree with how they care."

"Maymay believes that people too often forget that companies' interests are not always aligned with those of their users. The services want users to stay focused on doing things that will drive the bottom line. Crane, who writes technical copy for the products and is instrumental in their design, offers a more blunt explanation: 'They don't want their users coming on a dating site and thinking about getting raped.'"  backchannel  meitar_moscovitz  maymay_moscovitz  writing  internet  tool  weapon  technology  san_francisco  open-source  safety  social_media  dating  caleb_garling  hacker  cyborg  PAT  predator  negative  anonymous  facebook  okcupid  sex_offender  creepshield  browser  homeless  freelance  work  gender  social_change  justice  doxxing  transparency  rebecca_crane  action  collective

A Land Without Guns: How Japan Has Virtually Eliminated Shooting Deaths - Max Fisher - The Atlantic
"[E]ven the police did not carry firearms themselves until, in 1946, the American occupation authority ordered them to. Now, Japanese police receive more hours of training than their American counterparts, are forbidden from carrying off-duty, and invest hours in studying martial arts in part because they "are expected to use [firearms] in only the rarest of circumstances," according to Kopel."
