After Li Po While my hair was still cut straight across my forehead I played at the front gate, pulling flowers. You came by on bamboo stilts, playing horse, You walked about my seat, playing with blue plums. And we went on living in the village of Chokan: Two small people, without dislike or suspicion. At fourteen I married My Lord you. I never laughed, being bashful. Lowering my head, I looked at the wall. Called to, a thousand times, I never looked back. At fifteen I stopped scowling, I desired my dust to be mingled with yours Forever and forever and forever. Why should I climb the lookout? At sixteen you departed, You went into far Ku-to-en, by the river of swirling eddies, And you have been gone five months. The monkeys make sorrowful noise overhead. You dragged your feet when you went out, By the gate now, the moss is grown, the different mosses, Too deep to clear them away! The leaves fall early this autumn, in wind. The paired butterflies are already yellow with August Over the grass in the West garden; They hurt me. I grow older. If you are coming down through the narrows of the river Kiang, Please let me know beforehand, And I will come out to meet you As far as Cho-fu-sa.
It’s all about Power

Several months ago I wrote about Edward Snowden’s usefulness to those in the ‘intelligence community’ who feel threatened by rampant outsourcing. I speculated that Snowden’s position as a ‘contractor-traitor’ was helpful to spooks who wanted to protect their power base from private sector competition. Today I’m going highlight another area where the passage of time has shown us how Snowden helped US spooks: international cooperation. Perhaps unsurprisingly, anyone who had read William Colby’s 1978 autobiography, the cynically-titled Honorable Men, would have seen Edward coming.
Colby ends his life story with a handful of Nostradamus-like declarations about where the intelligence community and world politics are headed. I’ll let the horse speak:
This then is the future dimension of intelligence. It must become an international resource to help humanity identify and resolve its problems through negotiation and cooperation rather than continue to suffer or fight over them. To the extent that…

Israelis use tasers on Gaza flotilla passengers
Ali Abunimah, Electronic Intifada, Jul 1 2015
Contrary to Israeli claims that the Marianne was taken peacefully, this video shows that armed commandos used brutal violence against unarmed passengers aboard the Gaza-bound boat early on Monday. According to the organizers of the flotilla, 14 of the 18 civilian passengers and crew remain in Israeli custody more than two days after they were violently abducted in international waters to prevent them breaking the Israeli-imposed siege on Gaza. Plastelinan citizen of Israel and member of Knesset Basel Ghattas, former Tunisian president Moncef Marzouki, Spanish European Parliament member Ana Miranda and Israeli journalist Ohad Hemo have been released. The other passengers remain in detention at Givon prison in present-day Israel. The video shows Ghattas addressing officers on an Israeli naval ship through a megaphone. Ghattas says that he is not in command of the Marianne

American Jews are among the most supportive religious groups of same-sex marriage.
Some 77 percent of American Jews expressed support for same-sex marriage, according to data gathered in 2014 by the Public Religion Research Institute. Some 47 percent of American Jews polled said they “strongly favor” allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry legally, and 30 percent said they “favor” it.
Thirteen Jewish groups, among them organizations representing the Reform, Reconstructionist and Conservative streams, were among the 25 groups that joined the amicus brief filed by the Anti-Defamation League in Obergefell v. Hodges, the case decided by the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday that legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states.
The only religious group to be more supportive of same-sex marriage are Buddhists at 84 percent, with 48 strongly favoring and 36 in favor. Seventy-seven percent of religiously affiliated also support same-sex marriage, with 45 strongly in favor and 32 in favor.
The data were collected as part of the Public Religion Research Institute’s American Values Atlas for 2014, which comprises 40,000 interviews among a random sample of Americans in all 50 states. The institute, a nonprofit group, is “dedicated to research at the intersection of religion, values, and public life,” according to its website.
A copy of the disputed platform–provided by the office of Rep. William E. Dannemeyer (R-Fullerton)–calls for “the repeal of all laws governing the age of sexual consent” but makes no mention of 8-year-olds being allowed to have sex with adults.
Further, officials at several nationally based gay groups said they are unfamiliar with the rights platform mentioned and that, despite the charges of critics, no one in the established gay community has ever called for the legalization of sex with children. http://articles.latimes.com/1989-11-03/local/me-324_1_human-rights-ordinance
In particular, the statement cites NAMBLA's opposition to age-of-consent laws as a tool for protecting young people from sexual coercion. http://www.qrd.org/qrd/orgs/NAMBLA/nambla.replies.to.ilga.secretariat
Jews control media – Whites have no voice.
Jews control immigration – Miscegenation rates on target.
Jews control education – Marxist propaganda for all children for 12 years of their lives. Their intellectually formative years.
Jews control judiciary – No justice for whites. Anti-white laws created daily.
Jews control white governments – Our own police and armed forces can be directed against us at short notice.
Jews control race and employment integration programmes. – Target based policies rule the day.
Jews control alcohol and drug production/distribution – Choose your own poison.
Jews control money – Shut down ATM’s when they don’t get what they want, think Greece. Tax us to death.
Jews control music industry – Gangster rap feeds anti-white sub-culture coast-to-coast 24/7.
There is no getting around it, jews are the major problem of humanity. I would be willing to revise this opinion if world jewry paid back all the money (in period $) and materials they’ve received from the holocaust shakedown, confirmed the Green line as israel’s border and paid restitution to the Palestinians and Germans. This is all very possible.
How do you think a Palestinian feels when she/he sees an israeli flag? Bring it down!!!
