The fact is that western human rights organizations are below contempt. Some are political tools in the hands of the Empire (Human Rights Watch), some are full of western intelligence agents (Medecins Sans Frontieres, OSCE monitors), some are lead by cynical bureaucrats who use idealistic young delegates as cannon fodder (ICRC), some are used by big business as a tool (Greenpeace) while others are quasi-official CIA tools (NED, Freedom House, Open Society Foundation, etc.).

The funny thing in this case is that the photo is not taken in Russia, but in the Ukraine, and the riot cops shown here have Ukrainian unit badges.  But then, who cares anyway?  It’s not like “truth” is a topic that matters to HRW…

Beyond Repair: The Decline and Fall of the CIA

Beyond Repair: The Decline and Fall of the CIA
NOW IN PAPERBACK—with a new preface by the author An insider’s account of why the CIA is ill-prepared to protect America, and why it must be replaced without delay * “A devastating portrait of the agency’s culture—with details that only an insider would know.”—David Ignatius, Washington Post columnist and author of Body of Lies  “Faddis, a career CIA operations officer, pulls no punches in this provocative critique of the iconic and dysfunctional spy agency… . In a world where threats are multiplying and becoming more complex, [his] bleak assessment of the CIA should be required reading.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) In Beyond Repair, one of the Central Intelligence Agency’s most respected former operatives mounts a scathing cri­tique of the preparedness of today’s CIA—and, spe­cifically, the Directorate of Operations at its core—to defend America against the dizzying dangers of the twenty-first century. In a compelling blend of analy­sis and fascinating true-life stories, Charles S. Faddis argues that the CIA has devolved into a low-risk or, often, no-risk bureaucracy of careerists whose mantra might be summed up thus: “Don’t fall.” He discusses the birth of the CIA, how the agency works from the inside out, why things have gone awry—and how to build a new entity that will maintain the midnight watch, so Americans can sleep well at night.

Plastic Man Appreciation Post

An issue of JLA reveals that the reason Batman brought him into the League to begin with was that he was the only person who could defeat Martian Manhunter if he ever went rogue. He is immune to telepathy and with superior shapeshifting. As Batman’s own words: “Plastic Man is inspiration made form.”

Due to the jokesy nature of most of his appearances, people forget that not only can he go toe-to-toe with most of the other big names in the DCU without much difficulty, but he’s also a trained CIA operative and survived dismemberment for thousands of years. He has shrugged off abuse that would kill other members of the Justice League outright, can harden himself to dish out SERIOUS hurt on bad guys, can form sharpened shapes like knives and scissors that can slice through pretty much anything, shape-shift into pretty much any object imaginable and of incredible sizes both huge and tiny, and is effectively immortal.

In The Dark Knight Strikes Again, Batman seems to be of the opinion that Plas is one of the most powerful and potentially dangerous beings on Earth. There’s a reason why his contingency plan for Plastic Man going rogue boils down to “just hope that it doesn’t happen”.

You can tell some of the fans are very young and not used to how cb and rih have ALWAYS been. People really think because they opened up a bit the second time that they'd do that all the time and that isn't realistic. They tried being more public the second time and the navy turned CIA operatives on chris, TB separated into part 1 and part 2 and a certain stalker went on an instagram spree trying to prove this and that and they don't want a repeat of ceilings, carpets and t-shirts in 2015.

CIA Admitted to Staging Fake Jihadist Videos in 2010 – Questions arise after experts say ISIS beheadings video likely “staged” - Educate Inspire Change
War propaganda at its finest?

A 2010 Washington Post article authored by former Army Intelligence Officer Jeff Stein features a detailed account of how the CIA admittedly filmed a fake Bin Laden video during the run up to the 2003 Iraq war.

The article, which includes comments from multiple sources within the CIA’s Iraq Operations Group, explains how the agency had planned to “flood Iraq with the videos” depicting several controversial scenarios.

“The agency actually did make a video purporting to show Osama bin Laden and his cronies sitting around a campfire swigging bottles of liquor and savoring their conquests with boys, one of the former CIA officers recalled, chuckling at the memory,” the article states. “The actors were drawn from ‘some of us darker-skinned employees.’”

Lord of Light on LSD…

Liam Neeson’s Frail Frame Makes Him Almost Unrecognisable

The 63-year old, Irish actor, Liam Neeson, has caused much concern amongst fans after being photographed looking quite frail on the streets of New York last week.

In this dramatic transformation, he appears worryingly gaunt in the face with long grey wispy hair hidden underneath a baseball cap. In fact, he looks almost unrecognisable when compared to the butt-kicking CIA operative Bryan Mills in the Taken franchise. 

Copyright [Splash News]

Even more shockingly, it was only weeks earlier that he visited The Ronald McDonald House in New York in a much healthier-looking state, more like the Liam Neeson we have all grown to know.

It’s difficult to establish whether this new look is a result of natural aging or whether he is/has been unwell or if he has adopted it for a role in a new film, we hope it’s the latter.

In his next film appearance, Silence, directed by Martin Scorsese, Neeson is taking the lead role as Father Cristóvão Ferreira and he’s also playing a Monster in A Monster Calls, both films have entered the post-production stages and are scheduled for release in 2016.

The star has recently announced that he will be retiring from action roles within the next 2 years. He told the Guardian, “Maybe two more years – if God spares me, and I’m healthy.”

When questioned about his recent appearance, his representative confirmed that, “He’s never been healthier.” Phew!

As Lost as I Get | Lisa Nicholas | 9780698191464 | NetGalley

Hey book bloggers! As Lost As I Get is available as a “Read Now” title on NetGalley for the next 24 hours!

From the author of The Farther I Fall comes an action-filled romance in which two lovers discover that the best thing about being lost is having someone find you...

CIA operative Lee Wheeler is glad to be back in the field, even if the assignment is at a backwater station in Colombia—what he considers punishment for crossing lines in an attempt to save his brother’s life. Either way, he’s ready for action. But he never could have predicted the action he’s about to get…

Doctor Zoe Rodriguez is in charge of a clinic in a tiny town on the edge of the rain forest. She’s still dealing with a traumatic experience she had in Mexico—a trauma she wouldn’t have survived if it weren’t for Lee. So when they unexpectedly cross paths again, unresolved wounds rise to the surface, and their mutual passion flares to life.

But when a new threat reveals itself, Lee and Zoe’s reunion takes on echoes of the past that may ruin their chance for a future.

anonymous asked:

I really hope this doesn't seem rude, and I'm genuinely curious. But why exactly do you ship Emmoira? I totally understand if you ship it just because the idea of them is cool (which it is, CIA Operative and her Shiny Bawss Girlfriend is the best idea ever) but is there evidence in the movie? (I'm so sorry if this is rude. I am in no way trying to undermine your opinions by questioning your ships.)

No worries! Not rude at all :) 

Well, there are many reasons actually.

First off, me and bisexualogy tinkered around the idea of emmoira in a fic of hers that i wish i could link you too but I am on mobile. If you go to my blog ( sapphire–queen.tumblr,com ) and go on the emmoira tag you’ll find it soon enough if you’re interested. We liked it, a lot so we rolled with it.  To be completely honest, it started as one of those crack ships where you go like “hey in theory they could work” but then fics were written and late night discussions about them happened and suddenly I was hooked. 

Second, the pair is intriguing. As you said, CIA Operative with Shiny Bawss Girlfriend is just an amazing concept to me.

Third, I love both of these characters separately and every time I re-watch First Class, even though I love it, I’m always a bit sad that they didn’t expand more on their characters. I mean, a female CIA Operative in the 60′s? They should have had her kicking ass, Peggy style! A badass telepath who can turn her body into diamond???  SIGN ME THE HELL UP. 

Fourth, as much as I adore the x-men universe movie fan community, there are little/less queer female ships than the other fandoms, which is understandable considering that unfortunately there are little to a few female characters. So, when Arty (friend above) and I kind of concocted the idea of xmfc Emma/Moira, it kind of just spiraled out of control and now it’s like a legit ship of ours. 

Fifth, no, there is not much basis for it in the movies or even in the comic books, but we take a lot of joy of laying around with the characters and seeing how they would deal around each other. 

Long story short, Anon. We ship it because we can, because we love it and because these two badass ladies just kicking ass together makes us so happy. 

If you have any more questions, as long as you are respectful as you were here, I am more than happy to answer them!

The Chattanooga Event Is a CIA/ISIS False Flag Operation Connected to Jade Helm

By now most Americans, in one way or another, have heard of the tragic event in Chattanooga, TN., in which Muhammad Youssuf Abdulazeez attacked two separate military facilities which resulted in the death of four American servicemen. The local papers in Chattanooga have portrayed the assassin as a normal member of a normal family who was a productive member of the community. Already, the mainstream media is spinning this event as a deranged gunman gone crazy and when the smoke clears, President Obama will renew his cries for removing guns from the hands of American citizens.

Alas, such magic tricks aren’t much use anymore, except in the movies. The contemporary world of ubiquitous electronic surveillance—not just traffic and shopping mall cameras, but email tracking, real-time GPS locating and digital retina scans and fingerprinting at airports—have pretty much relegated the Jack-in-the-box, wigs and latex facial implants to the CIA’s attic. “It’s got to be incredibly difficult to use aliases and disguises,” says former CIA operative Patrick Skinner, now director of special projects for The Soufan Group, a private intelligence organization headed by FBI, CIA and MI6 veterans. “The cameras are so ubiquitous you don’t even know when you’re not under surveillance, so when would you put on your disguise in an operation?”
Good things, small ways, comfort zone. [For Curly]

Curly: but how do I get the goat to like me?

CIA operative & me: you don’t

Me: it’s just like I respect the operative and he respects me. You have to show the goat you respect him or her and you have to show them you could be trusted.

Curly: it’s not about like?

Me: not at first

Curly: I got it

Me: maybe you don’t even like the goats… you can sit in their fence and look at them and decide what you like best about them..If you like them they will feel and understand your soul when they hear it say good things about them

Curly: I must be nuts! Because I believe that!

Me: it’s true sweetie. Animals know way more than we do. I had a cat that used to wake me up 22 minutes before someone came over. After I realized that I felt differently about him waking me up and I appreciated him more and I felt more gratitude. and more sorrow because I didn’t understand him before and it broke my heart to think about how many more messages he tried to tell me but I missed.

Jesse: it’s a good thing to do Curly. Realize it. Sabrina understands yoir sorrow. She sent me a text message the other day pissed off about how people are neglecting you in your mother’s case because they said they wouldn’t arrest dejoria until September

Curly: SEPTEMBER! THATS BULL!

Dejoria smiles: do you hear her?

Jesse: that’s what Sabrina said too and she said what about curly? She’s going to have to go to school and deal with all the kids in her face about Dejoria and if they arrested her in the summer then she would have time to cope and deal with the loss of her mother and be able to become emotionally stable before they arrest her mom. So she doesn’t get overwhelmed with such a big and it’s going to be public thing. At least give her a chance before she has to be publically humiliated in front of the whole nation and have to face the music and be shunned by her so called friends.

Curly: That’s what I’ve been saying! You need to turn yourself in mom!

Dejoria: okay ain’t going to happen you need to get over yourself

Jesse: Sabrina? I’m about to kill dejoria

Me: it’s okay

Jesse: thank you. Thank you very much.

Me: Dejoria, go away now. So curly just be around the goat and it will go to when it becomes curious

Curly: curious! That’s the first step

Me: first is trust then curious because right now they’re in a fear mode or selfish mode and don’t want things to change like dejoria

Curly: got it

Me: dejoria I can hear you complain I suggest you shut your fucking mouth!

Dejoria: I got compared to a goat!

Me: maybe it’s because of your teeth.

Curly: see mom? You’re ruining everything. 1st it’s trust then curious

Me: then you can interact

Curly: cool!

Me: and sometimes you have to start all over from square one if they forget you or get scared because of something else or they talk shit about you behind your back or get offended. Because you compared them to your mom

Dejoria: shut the fuck up Sabrina

Me: idk if I was a goat I would be pissed to be compared to Dejoria too! Sometimes they can get startled just because you laugh. I can tell they don’t have alot of human interaction and so they don’t understand humans just like you don’t understand goats

Curly: okay! Cool! I can become the goat whisperer!

Me:yeah… I could see you asking your mom if she’s okay so I am sure you will do fine with the goats.

Curly: can I take sunny out there?

Me: If she wants to. Obviously you don’t want to fight but if you fought in front of them they would actually take sides

Curly: no kidding?

Me: yip they understand. .. my brother reduced a pit bull once and I told our other dog to get out the way so I could go inside and Ringo didn’t listen so that pit bull whipped his ass. So i went over there and I yelled and I told him it wasn’t a big deal and he got off him and just stood in front of me. I had another dog, Sweetie, blue heeler and she knew I was pregnant even before I did. She would put her nose and her Paws in my belly and stand between me and Michael. Denise noticed and so she told Michael to circle around me so he did and she circled around me too keeping herself between me and him. It’s sad. That a dog was smarter than me

IDIOT: OH BULL SHIT!

Me: I had amnesia you fucking ass hole and you have a small dick. You’re a rapist

IDIOT: I’m a molestor at best! You wouldn’t even suck my dick

Me: it’s forcible sodomy. You’ll have to register as a sex offender. Don’t rape the goats curly

Curly: I wont!

Me: I believe you

Jesse: that’s what I was trying to tell you she believes in you. What she’s doing is good for you. Like when Brian started that can recycling business for me. Sabrina saw a picture of you at the horde stables and she said “i see that little girl working with animals and not machines”

Me: because you looked so happy. Calm and at peace. And I could tell you are totally different than your mom. You have an ability to work with living creatures. You’re not like your mom. Like your mom got upset and you asked her if she was okay. You will feel most comfortable with animals… soon… and its good… they’re great therapy. And since they’re not going to arrest your mom soon you have time to work on having a relationship with the animals… so then when you get upset that a human was rude to you because of your mom you can put your heart out to the goats and they will heal you

Jesse: i do that with the dogs and Sabrina talks to them. They get agitated when she’s sick. They have a connection to her. Because of me. Because I care about her and I want everyone around me to care about her too. And they do

Me: :)

Jesse: you’re just a human being who knows how to tap into parts of the soul no one else knows about because they’re too busy looking in the mirror to make sure they look good and lying an saying they do when all they see is a pile of shit .

Me: I know and if I lifted a car it’s because I tapped into strength. And got pure strength and energy because I wasn’t clouded with

IDIOT: stupidity

Me: exactly. Talk to the goats honey. The angel says that they’re reincarnated humans so they understand what we go through. I’ve seen many a dog cry so I know they have emotions. So talk tell them hey I’m Isabella/Curly and tell them about your family just talk… the way I write it just flows so just talk. And if you explain what’s going on in your life then if you have to move away they will understand. So they won’t be hurt but you’ll be their limited time entertainment angel.

Curly: I know huh

Me: and as being reincarnated they missed something in life so you tell them… goats are frustrating… but any animal is. But they have been characterized as stubborn. So maybe hearing how you’re frustrated and you can’t change things and you have to be patient and you are being neglected and hurt maybe they will feel like they’re not alone and maybe it will teach them a lesson they need before dying again.

Curly: but what if I don’t teach them?

Me: you’re their limited time entertainment angel. And that’s a good thing to be…

Dejoria: oh I want to cry now! You’ll be just like her! The way she is to me!

Me: that’s cool Dejoria

from @i_am_orrin2 - Whet they at tho?? BOTTOM LINE: The so-called “Black Feminist” movement was created and manipulated by the CIA from the very beginning. The only difference between Black Revolutionaries and Black Feminist on this issue is that the Black Revolutionaries KNOW they were infiltrated and manipulated—But Black Feminist are still unwilling to admit that they were infiltrated and manipulated, largely because they are highly invested in the hateful brand of Black feminism. As a result, the “Hate Black Men” movement has become MORE THAN just a political point a view: It is now a central part of the CULTURE of Black women and this fact has led to the destruction of the Black Revolution and the complete distortion of Black relationships. And the CIA had a direct hand in creating this situation.

The FACTS surrounding Gloria Steinem’s CIA operations follow:

FACT: Gloria Steinem is a CIA Agent and everything she has ever done throughout her adult life has been under the direction of the CIA.

FACT: Gloria Steinem was recruited into the CIA before she even graduated high school.

FACT: Gloria Steinem, who was from a poor and dysfunctional family and lived in a house without running water, was able to attend the elite and expensive Smith College. After she graduated she spent two years in India spying for the CIA. She received a “Chester Bowles Student Fellowship” to “study” in India. This was a Fellowship created by the CIA to cover Steinem’s expenses in India—no one has received a “Cheater Bowles Student Fellowship” either before or since Steinem received one.

FACT: One of Gloria Steinem’s first missions for the CIA was to manipulate the student movement (most people are STILL unaware that the National Student Association was created, funded and manipulated by the CIA). Steinem did this by organizing “student festivals” in Europe #sandrabland #blacklivesmatter #blackdevils #baltimore #negropeans #Regrann
