AMERICA’S BIGGEST SECRET: WIKILEAKS IS RAISING A $100,000 REWARD FOR LEAKS OF THE TPP Published: June 2, 2015

Published: June 2, 2015
Said otherwise, a non-profit, international organization whose legal status has been openly challenged by various western governments, is seeking to bribe whistleblowers in Congress who have access to the full TPP, just so the public can see what the US president is rushing to slam through Congress without anyone have any idea of its contents. In other words, Wikileaks is scrambling to do what in any normal representative democracy should be taken for granted.

LA Times: Op-Ed Wrongfully treating academic debate as anti-Semitism

Op-Ed

Wrongfully treating academic debate as anti-Semitism

Excerpt:

Such emotionally charged language attempts to preempt criticism of Israeli policies. It codifies the kind of rhetorical jujitsu in defense of Israel we already see on campus: When a speaker or a writer calls into question any of a range of Israeli policies (for example, maintaining a perpetual military occupation in the West Bank, segregating housing along racial lines, systematically bulldozing Palestinian homes, bombing civilians in Gaza), the response is not an attempt to produce a rational counter-argument by mustering facts or data, but rather an immediate descent into shrill accusations of “demonization” and “delegitimization” followed, inevitably, by character assassination.

To criticize
Is not to curse;
Their policies*
Should be reversed.

* For example, maintaining a perpetual military occupation in the West Bank, segregating housing along racial lines, systematically bulldozing Palestinian homes, bombing civilians in Gaza.

 

God bless Israel with godly leadership.
