The World’s Obsession With Amal Isn’t About Her Accomplishments

February 1, 2015

Originally posted on TIME:

Amal Clooney is at it again— doing something celebrities don’t usually do, and looking like a movie star while doing it.

This time, she’s arguing in the European Court of Human Rights against a Turkish politician who denied the existence of an Armenian genocide 100 years ago in which more than 1.5 million people were brutally murdered. That’s, like, sooo impressive… but who is she wearing?

When a reporter from The Telegraphasked her, she cheekily replied “Ede and Ravenscroft,” the legal robes maker that has been selling drab back judge costumes since 1689, the year Benjamin Franklin’s parents met.

Once she did that, the focus shifted from the history of the Armenian genocide to Amal’s sense of humor and fashion choices. The global reaction to her comments was proof that jig is up: it’s stop pretending you care about what Amal Clooney is doing, when you really just…

Kim Dotcom puts MegaChat secure Skype rival into beta

January 23, 2015

Originally posted on Gigaom:

Kim Dotcom’s Mega has launched a public beta of its MegaChat end-to-end encrypted audio and video chat service, which it claims will offer a more secure alternative to Skype.

The in-browser service forms part of the wider Mega web app (now on a new .nz domain), which also offers encrypted file storage and sharing. The technical details are currently hard to come by – I can only guess that it’s WebRTC-based, as it doesn’t require a plugin.

According to scoundrelpreneur/wannabe-politician Dotcom, vanilla audio and video chat is just the start:

Mega has previously had poor ratings from security experts for its cloud storage encryption, but the New Zealand–based operation is offering a security bounty for anyone who finds…

Why Must We Approve of Kink?

I have a low opinion of hardcore BD/SM types as I think there is no way to do this in a healthy way. I have been to many Tumblr porn sites that were oriented this way, and it’s sick as Hell. These men are sexual sadists. That means they get hard by hurting women. These are men who love to hurt women, live to hurt women. There is no way you can be like that and be a good person, much less a good man.

I have no respect for a woman who likes to be beaten up or treated like shit. Sorry. Anybody like that is simply not healthy.

If those porn sites are anything like what the BD/SM scene is really like then the whole thing is fucked up and sick. The impression I got from those sites and the comments is that BD/SM looks exactly like how…

ATTENTION: Last Chance to Download Music

January 23, 2015

Originally posted on Audio SeXXX:

On February 15th, I’m clearing my bandcamp page of ALL music except Farewell and Yesterday’s Tomorrow Original Soundtrack. It’s not that I think the music is horrible, but I feel like the music from the past doesn’t reflect the focus and unity of vision I have now. Not to mention with 11 projects from 3 years of work featured on the homepage it’s starting to look cluttered and if it annoys me to look at I know it probably annoys you too. So, download your favorites now before I take them down on the day after valentine’s day. 90% of the music is “Name Your Price” with no minimum meaning zero (aka free) is a valid option or you can donate a spare change, either is greatly appreciated :).  Here’s a medley of a couple classics that have gotten well stats over the years.

The Widening War Against Anti-Fascist Resistance in the Donbass Region

Ukraine Widens War Against Donbass Region

By Greg Butterfield

A horrific war is unfolding on the territory of the former Soviet Union at the behest of Washington and Wall Street. The Kiev regime in Ukraine has ordered jets, missiles, artillery, mortars and land mines to target homes, schools, hospitals and workplaces in the Donbass region in a war of terror waged with U.S. weapons and taxpayer money against an anti-fascist resistance movement.

Most workers and poor people in the U.S. are completely unaware of the war crimes being committed in their names and with their dollars.

The Ukrainian junta of oligarchs, neoliberal politicians and neo-Nazis installed in Kiev with Washington’s support in February 2014 has finally cast aside the last pretense of respecting the flawed ceasefire negotiated at Minsk, Belarus, in September.

On Jan. 18, Kiev officially launched a new military offensive against the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DNR…

Storm Clouds Gathering

We don’t have to speculate as to how this event is going to be used. It has already started.

To download the files mentioned in this video click here (French direct download), (English direct download), (French torrent)

Whatever you believe actually happened in Paris, one thing is very clear: the powers that be are going to try to use this event to expand wars, intensify domestic surveillance, and legislate away more of our rights.

This is not speculation. They have already started in France, in the U.K. (see this document), at the E.U. level, in the United States and they are going to attempt to push this on a global scale (also see this). All nicely coordinated to ride the wave of outrage that followed the attacks.

If you want a glimpse at just how far they want to take…

Some Shiites link Saudi king’s health to end-times – Al-Monitor: the Pulse of the Middle East

January 23, 2015

Originally posted on :

The Shiites believe that divine Imams are heirs to the political and religious Ummah, or Islamic nation. These 12 imams are successors to the Prophet Muhammad and to the head of the caliphate, with Mahdi being the final Imam who disappeared, or went into occultation. Mahdi will be revealed only in the end-times, along with Jesus, to deliver peace to the world.

According to the book “250 Signs Until the Appearance of Imam Mahdi,” Prophet Muhammad said: “On doomsday, a man who is carrying the name of an animal ascends to the throne, after which a man named Abdullah comes to the power. Whoever informs me of his death, I will inform him of the rise [of Mahdi]. After Abdullah passes away, for several days and months, the government will appear.”

A seminary teacher based in Qom told Al-Monitor on condition of anonymity, “The animal-named man can be King Fahd…
