"No investigative journalism in my lifetime can equal the importance of what WikiLeaks has done in ...
WilliamCharles comments on Nov 16, 2018:
And this. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7Lh93e21DAc My guess is that the Russian collusion claims will amount to little (we should know soon). I have no doubt that Trump helped launder money for the Russian mafia (with the knowledge and help of his sons and Kushner), and that Putin is aware of same which certainly would provide some leverage. But a handful of nutty Facebook ads from a little web startup looking for business (memes like, "Vote Trump, or Satan wins") is not what derailed Hillary and her massive campaign warchest. The Hillbots I encounter roll their eyes dismissively anytime the argument/rationale of "both sides" is put forth, most often to justify or minimize some reprehensible behavior by the right. This is quite often valid. But what is important to me, far beyond any case of "gotcha!," is pointing out the reality of "both sides" lying to us. It is most predictably assessed in terms of the extent of the lies ("Trump lies all the time on things both critical and trivial, whereas lies from the left are not so egregious, and besides are an integral part of the political game"), in addition to the reaction to them based entirely on if they are by "your team" or not. To paraphrase Malcolm X, 'I am for truth, no matter who is telling it.' As rationalists especially, so should we all.

WilliamCharles comments on Nov 16, 2018:
Written by former intelligence analysts William Binney and Ray McGovern. "Leak: When someone physically takes data out of an organization — on a thumb drive, for example — and gives it to someone else, as Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning did. Leaking is the only way such data can be copied and removed with no electronic trace. Because NSA can trace exactly where and how any "hacked" emails from the Democratic National Committee or other servers were routed through the network, it is puzzling why NSA cannot produce hard evidence implicating the Russian government and WikiLeaks. Unless we are dealing with a leak from an insider, not a hack, as other reporting suggests. From a technical perspective alone, we are convinced that this is what happened." https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/opinion/oped/bs-ed-hacking-intelligence-20170105-story.html

"John Pilger: There is the accusation that WikiLeaks is in league with the Russians. Some people say, ‘Well, why doesn’t WikiLeaks investigate and publish emails on Russia?’ Julian Assange: We have published about 800,000 documents of various kinds that relate to Russia. Most of those are critical; and a great many books have come out of our publications about Russia, most of which are critical. Our [Russia] documents have gone on to be used in quite a number of court cases: refugee cases of people fleeing some kind of claimed political persecution in Russia, which they use our documents to back up." https://consortiumnews.com/2016/11/05/secrets-of-the-us-election-assange-talks-to-pilger/ "Julian Assange: Here we have a case, the Swedish case, where I have never been charged with a crime, where I have already been cleared [by the Stockholm prosecutor] and found to be innocent, where the woman herself said that the police made it up, where the United Nations formally said the whole thing is illegal, where the State of Ecuador also investigated and found that I should be given asylum. Those are the facts, but what is the rhetoric? John Pilger: Yes, it’s different. Julian Assange: The rhetoric is pretending, constantly pretending that I have been charged with a crime, and never mentioning that I have been already previously cleared, never mentioning that the woman herself says that the police made it up. [The rhetoric] is trying to avoid [the truth that] the U.N. formally found that the whole thing is illegal, never even mentioning that Ecuador made a formal assessment through its formal processes and found that yes, I am subject to persecution by the United States."

WilliamCharles comments on Nov 16, 2018:
"The US sent a “planeload of FBI agents” to Iceland in 2011 to frame WikiLeaks and its co-founder Julian Assange, according to a former Icelandic minister of interior, who refused them any cooperation and asked them to cease their activities. In June 2011, Obama administration implied to Iceland’s authorities they had knowledge of hackers wanting to destroy software systems in the country, and offered help, then-Interior Minister Ogmundur Jonasson, said in an interview with the Katoikos publication. However, Jonasson said he instantly became “suspicious” of the US good intentions, “well aware that a helping hand might easily become a manipulating hand.” Later in the summer 2011, the US “sent a planeload of FBI agents to Iceland seeking our cooperation in what I understood as an operation set up to frame Julian Assange and WikiLeaks,” Jonasson said." http://www.eutimes.net/2016/12/fbi-sent-agents-to-frame-assange-in-iceland-got-snubbed-by-minister/

WilliamCharles comments on Nov 16, 2018:
I consider John Pilger and Chris Hedges both to be journalists of the highest integrity. They each point out the hypocrisy regarding the hand wringing over Jim Acosta, while the MSM is silent about Assange. The charge of being a Russian tool is unfounded, as are the claims the DNC emails are the result of a Russian hack and not a leak. Liberals loved Wikileaks revealing the crimes of Shrubya, but apparently to shine the same spotlight on Team Hillary is verboten. They claimed the emails were doctored, but without providing any originals to show where. They also insisted their servers were hacked by the Russians, but refused to turn them over to the FBI to conduct forensic analysis. The book "Shattered" revealed blaiming the Russians was the spin concocted within 24 hours of their loss by Robby Mook and John Podesta. The rape charges were trumped up by the US intelligence community and have since been dropped.

What's your favorite name?
WilliamCharles comments on Jul 10, 2018:
Another thing comes to mind. What are your thoughts on ethnic names and those who opt to Americanize them. Many of my former Chinese coworkers chose an anglo version of their name, but most of the Indian and Arabic ones did not. I always liked for them to go with their own preferences. There were a few that took me awhile to get the pronunciation right. Another coworker had to correct me for my sloppy pronunciation of his name. Yohan (rhymes with wand not hand). Finally, and along somewhat similar lines, what do you all think of the trend of names that go to extreme of spelling or other irregularities? Many are the butt of jokes for being too "ghetto." Again, I think personal choice pretty much trumps all, but there are some names it seems unfortunate to saddle a child with, though if they become famous, the uniqueness is often seen as a plus. Oprah's name was supposedly a misspelling of the biblical name Orpah.

WilliamCharles comments on Jul 10, 2018:
I think my online nom de plume is pretty cool. LanceThruster. I like the double entendre, but it was meant to be reminiscent of Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, and the like (Buzz Lightyear came later). I came up with it around 1981 or so. There's even a Fairly Oddparents character by that name (also came after my debut). It's part of the Crash Nebula cartoon within a cartoon. My political content on Facebook is on my LanceThruster page. People I'd debate with online said it sounded like a gay porn star (not that there's anything wrong with that). I said they must be projecting because it works just as well for a straight actor. And then I'd ask if they were hiring. ?

WilliamCharles comments on Jul 2, 2018:
Thank you everybody for your input. I think what is currently escalating is what the military refers to as "low intensity conflict." That is, something short of full blown war. The rhetoric is heated and each side demonizes the other to its own standards (varying depending on subgroup). Certain occurrences are seen as skirmishes whether acts of violence ascribed to either side, or claims of over-the-top rhetoric, or acts of incivility. Look to history for examples of how the state reacts. Water cannons are being called out on ICE protesters. Legislation has been proposed to criminalize peaceful protest including severe penalties for even being at a gathering where any acts of violence or destruction takes place. This ignores the regular tactic of planting agent provacatuers to shape perceptions of a given protest. I feel the sad reality of the side that claims to love America clearly hates over half the population. The thin veneer of civility is quite apparent at times and it seems that it would not take much to strip it away, considering the level of friction that seems to be increasing.

Even when a side is using it to argue for a position I support, to my ears it's as if they were debating how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

Quite enjoying the twists and turns. Was actually surprised by the Thandie Newton interview with Trevor Noah on TDS before the 2nd season had begun where she kept insisting, "They're just things!" It was almost like a spoiler as the 1st season seemed to establish them as having some human-like self-awareness. It reminds me a bit of the thematic differences between Philip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" versus the first "Bladerunner" movie. In the book, no matter how hard the replicants tried, they were lacking that basic essence of what it means to be human. In the movie, that was pretty much flipped. The replicants were on their way to gaining that spark of humanity that humans were progressively losing (as evidenced by Rutger Hauer's "tears in the rain" monologue).
Do you like to dance ?

I often feel my reaction to another's choice is based on my own selfishness.
