How can Obama smile at a time like this? I think he knows something | Jonathan Jones | Opinion | The Guardian
If Obama has been doing any beach reading between watersport exploits, he may even have dipped into some 20th-century history and recognised the frightening parallels between the acts, statements and style of this hypernationalist administration in its first few weeks, and the rhetoric and ideologies of European dictators in the 1920s and 1930s. All that talk of “populism” looks like pussyfooting around now that Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon is stoking up apparently intentional mayhem. [....] Trump has a stay-at-home electorate of reality tv fans. It is the left who are on the streets. It is his enemies who have the youth, anger and numbers.

Why Hillary Clinton’s ‘super-predator’ concession is such a big moment for political protest - The Washington Post
Clinton’s 1996 speech included some language about these so-called super-predators implying that they were a generation of guilt- and compassion-free sociopaths who, in the interest of society, simply had to be contained. [...] Clinton seemed audibly and visibly irritated, saying she would answer if allowed to speak and then, even more notably, “that no one had ever asked her that before.” Then, Clinton essentially moved on with her regularly scheduled fundraising program. There was no accounting, partial or full, for her 1996 position nor how she arrived at her 2016 stance on criminal justice reform. Moving on. [...] Clinton decided to offer an apology for using that “super-predator” and “brought to heel” language. In the 1990s both were part of a relatively popular but now largely discredited theory about rising youth crime. [ tough on crime was] effective tactic with white voters, because in the [US] there are a whole host of persistent stereotypes abt race & criminality.

Pando: At what point is the convenience of technology outweighed by the constant stress?
Yesterday, I wrote about new proposals to allow the government to trawl the social media accounts of visa applicants before allowing or denying entry to the US.  Specifically, I wrote about my relief, as a visa-carrying foreign worker, at having deleted my social media accounts last year. For all the myriad reasons the government might declare me unworthy of living here -- particularly under President Trump -- at least an old dumb tweet won’t be one of them. [...] Connected technology was supposed to make our lives easier. And of course it has, in countless ways. But what it doesn’t seem to have done is made our lives less stressful...

The Pentagon has fired the first shot in a new arms race | Mary Dejevsky | Opinion | The Guardian
In a speech in Washington last week, previewing his announcement, Ash Carter said he would ask for spending on US military forces in Europe to be quadrupled in the light of “Russian aggression”. The allocation for combating Islamic State, in contrast, is to be increased by 50%. The message is unambiguous: as viewed from the Pentagon, the threat from Russia has become more alarming, suddenly, even than the menace that is Isis. [...] In the last months of his presidency, this detachment is ending. The additional funds for Europe’s defence are earmarked for new bases and weapons stores in Poland and the Baltic states. There will be more training for local Nato troops, more state-of-the-art hardware and more manoeuvres. [ ... + MH17 downing w Russian ground to air defense missile ]

Iowa caucus live: Sanders and Clinton 'in virtual tie' as Cruz beats Trump | US news | The Guardian
Texas senator Ted Cruz won an outright victory in the Iowa caucuses on the Republican side, while the Democratic side remained locked in a virtual tie between former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, with nearly all the vote counted. Donald Trump came in second to Cruz by between three and four points. Trump delivered a gracious concession speech and looked ahead to New Hampshire. [...] Fighting Clinton to a draw in Iowa counts as a victory compared to where he came from – nowhere, with no press attention, no money and no establishment support (as he noted in his speech). When you couple tonight’s results with what could be a rout of Clinton in New Hampshire, it’s possible that Sanders could go into South Carolina with the buzz and name recognition that can start to make inroads with minority voters and eat away at the polling advantage that Clinton has largely by dint of familiarity, not policy.

"Markets Crash When They're Oversold" | Zero Hedge
Technology Destroying Jobs + While the big driver of the decline in economic growth since the 1980’s has been a structural change from a manufacturing based economy (high multiplier effect) to a service based one (low multiplier effect), it has been exacerbated by the increase in household debt to offset the reduction in wage growth to maintain the standard of living. This is shown clearly in the chart below. [...] In fact, each job created in energy-related areas has had a “ripple effect” of creating 2.8 jobs elsewhere in the economy from piping to coatings, trucking and transportation, restaurants and retail. Simply put, lower oil and gasoline prices may have a bigger detraction on the economy than the “savings” provided to consumers.

Obama to take unilateral action on US gun violence - BBC News
In his first weekly address of 2016, Mr Obama said he would meet Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss actions he could take. He said he was using his executive powers as president because the US Congress has failed to address the problem. Analysts say there will be a backlash from gun activists and Republicans. But Mr Obama told Americans that he had received too many letters from parents, and teachers, and children, to sit around and do nothing. "We know that we can't stop every act of violence," the president said. "But what if we tried to stop even one? What if Congress did something - anything - to protect our kids from gun violence?" He has admitted that his inability to win Congressional backing for what he called "common sense gun laws" was the greatest frustration of his presidency.

Apple raises concerns over UK's draft surveillance bill - BBC News
The US-based firm has passed on its thoughts to a parliamentary committee scrutinising the legislation. It focuses on three issues: encryption, the possibility of having to hack its own products, and the precedent it would set by agreeing to comply with UK-issued warrants. The Home Secretary Theresa May said last month that the proposed powers were needed to fight crime and terror. [...] But Apple appears to be concerned that the bill's language could still be interpreted more expansively and force the creation of a so-called "backdoor" to provide the authorities with access. Apple argues that the existence of such a backdoor would risk creating a weakness that others then might exploit, making users' data less secure. [...] Overseas warrants A second area of concern relates to the issue of "extra-territoriality". Existing British legislation - and the bill - maintain that companies need to comply with warrants for information wherever they are based and wherever the data resides.

And they blocked numerous policy "riders" Republicans sought on the environment and other issues. "They wanted big oil so much that they gave away the store," Pelosi gloated [...] The bill extends more than 50 expiring tax cuts, with more than 20 becoming permanent, including credits for companies' expenditures for research and equipment purchases, and reductions for lower-earning families and households with children and college students. Ryan cited the lifting of the oil export ban, the large increase for the Pentagon & curbs on the activities of EPA & IRS

If you care about the truth you eventually run into problems as the journalist who usually manipulates facts for a living. // neoliberalism sold to us through lies and manipulated facts. // 2/3rds of the country in poverty. // mania for hope is a political pacifier even for the liberals, keeping people hopeful - keeps people complacent. // moral imperative for civil disobedience. // but do not use the word hope! // game is fixed. // rebellion led by day class intellectuals. that band together with the underclass. // if you have whole-sale surveillance, you can't have investigative journalism // it's about ratings and money, they don't do journalism. << corporate media. // dismantling BBC by tories is a power play by tories (power elite) // &! - Most of the information we spread online is quantifiably “bullshit” - The internet encourages the spread of information that is emotionally resonant but factually untrue

Wikileaks veröffenlicht Tisa-Dokumente: COP21 von Tisa ausgehöhlt -
Während es in Paris um Weltrettung geht, wird in Genf das internationale Dienstleistungsabkommen TiSA verhandelt. Das von Wikileaks veröffentlichte Energiekapitel zeigt, dass TiSA den Klimaschutz torpedieren könnte. // Wenn Tisa in dieser Form Wirklichkeit würde, hätten die beteiligten Staaten künftig deutlich weniger Möglichkeiten, ihre Energiepolitik nach ökologischen Kriterien auszurichten. Denn das Papier schlägt ausdrücklich eine „Technologie-Neutralität“ vor. Wenn ein Land seinen Energiemarkt für ausländische Konzerne öffnet, dann dürfe das nicht nur für einzelne Energieträger, sondern müsse für alle gelten – ganz gleich, ob es sich dabei um Solar, Atom, Wind, Kohle, Öl, Geothermie oder Fracking handelt.

No mention of climate change in the TPP: Sierra Club report shows “dirty deal” means environmental disaster -
The Trans-Pacific Partnership will "fuel the climate crisis" warns the environmental organization in a new report [...] Environmental and labor organizations have warned for years that the TPP, which has been characterized as “NAFTA on steroids,” will mean disaster for the climate and for the economy. “A Dirty Deal: How the Trans-Pacific Partnership Threatens Our Climate,” the Sierra Club’s new report, details just how disastrous it could be. [...] The Sierra Club’s report finds that the TPP will do the following: “Empower fossil fuel corporations to challenge climate policies in private tribunals” [...] he deal will give foreign corporations the ability to sue governments for implementing environmental policies that do not meet companies’ “expectations” or that could make their investments less profitable.

Conspiracy-theorist nutbags run Congress, and they’re making Benghazi a verb: Next up, climate scientists -
But in this political environment, being cautious about just handing a bunch of documents over to Republican is a smart move. After watching the Planned Parenthood and Benghazi hearings, a couple of things are clear: One, the Republicans will extract any stray word or number they can and take it out of context in an effort to advance their political agenda, with concerns about decency and honesty not restraining them in the slightest. Two, if they can’t find something like that, they’ll probably just lie about it. [...] The episode was a stellar demonstration of how the utter lack of morals and decency among House Republicans will lead them to distort and lie about numbers, even in the most obnoxious and obvious ways. [...] Imagine what kind of lies and distortions Republicans could gin up with the complex equations and variables that go into climate science. // confusing people. put doubt into peoples mind.

Why Cameron's case for Syria airstrikes is highly contentious | Politics | The Guardian
There is no clear strategy, objective or endgame, with one US commander describing the campaign in Syria and Iraq as a stalemate //&! - He claims the terror group has an external operations group dedicated to causing mass casualty attacks around the world. He insists the strikes against Isis will be part of a comprehensive political and diplomatic plan to deny the group space and create the circumstances for an end to the civil war in Syria. The aim, he says, must be to close down ungoverned space. //&! &!

Defence review: PM could send 10,000 troops on to streets - BBC News
Trident - about 31bn // - Up to 10,000 troops could be deployed on to British streets in the event of a Paris-style attack, David Cameron has said, as he announced plans for an extra £12bn for military equipment. The PM also said two 5,000-strong "strike brigades" would be created, as it was revealed the cost of renewing Trident could increase by £6bn. [...] the government's £178bn defence spending plans for the next decade // Comment: The extra £12bn going to the Ministry of Defence of course comes at a cost to other departments. Every penny that goes there has to come from somewhere else, and the depth of the cuts elsewhere will be revealed by George Osborne on Wednesday. Welfare, the police, and support for business are all likely to be hit. [...] what ground forces exist in Syria to take and hold land where IS is destroyed? Billions of pounds of new British military kit can't answer that. [ Drones and Bombs don't replace boots ]
