They say people have the rulers they deserve. Hard to tell for sure if and to the extent that may be the case, but U.S. presidential elections have showed something I’d call “the Obama effect”:

Phil Ebersole says in his blog:

Hillary Clinton was not beaten by an upsurge in votes for Donald Trump. She was beaten because she lost votes, not because Trump gained votes.

I think people are just tired of b#llsh!tting political circus orchestrated by the media, of being played by the status quo. People don’t want to remember how promising (almost Messianic) that “black” young lawyer, “fresh from Chicago” was.

Hillary didn’t have to work that hard at losing votes. Obama had formidably done that job for her and not only that, he also cleared the way for Trump:

All she had to do is identifying with anything “political”

// __ 4 Things Obama Has Blamed For Trump’s Win

The thing is that all those people, like the general gringo population, have their minds so unhinged from anything resembling any degree of truthfulness and/or have their heads so deep into their @ss that they have lost touch with reality. Trump seems to have at least a more realistic grasp on reality. He has publicly said that “people are so stupid they would believe anything you tell them …”. “Yes we can” proved Trump right.

That niggah, after sitting his black @ss for 12 years studying “constitutional law” at “prestigious U.S. universities” (among them Columbia University and Harvard Law School) wiped his @ss with the supposedly sacrosanct U.S. constitution, championed persecuting whistleblowers like no other president ever had, consolidated and institutionalized even more “secret laws”. … Now, isn’t that an exemplary case of crazy irrationality. I can’t imagine a Physicist denying gravity. Yet, here you have a “constitutional lawyer” “understanding” and “implementing” such things as “secret laws”, being publicly amazed at “how good at killing people” he turned out to be …

Gringos used the adjective “un-American” kind of like meaning “something contemptuously, abominably and hopelessly stupidly wrong, only lowlifes could possibly do”. Trump wants to “make ‘America’ great ‘again'”. Some may consider Obama to be “as ‘American’ as it gets”.

Supporting not only politically that the Israeli government keeps Palestine as their “Lebensraum”, but financially supporting it with “Americans'” tax payers’ monies seems to be “as ‘American’ as it gets”, too.

    Hello Ricardo. I have a question.

    Approximately when did you notice they started “Changing the background generation of pages so you can’t see messages being blocked”
    ————————————–
    I stopped sticking it to “the man” (trapping disingenuous overly secretive oligarchs in intellectual constructs of their own creation) 5 years ago. We had a growing government sanctioned SF based transparency op. We had a good rep with statewide reach and were in the process of “going federal.”

    Then “they” (whomever) ran a standard JTRIG based psyop on my organization, family, circle of contacts, friends work associates tapping all the phones, hijacking our private web and mail servers and our supplemental outsourced online databases, scribd and WordPress sites frequently salting our file archives with documents we had never requested let alone redacted and approved by our attorneys for release in the wild.

    A little more than a year later in mid 2013 Edward showed us they could do all that to anyone. It may seem strange but I actually felt RELIEVED to know I had a lot of company.

    So I went from being an actual government approved pain in the ass (running a SF BOS resolution sanctioned project with direct supervision from the SF City attorneys Office) collecting raw data, server logs, metadata, NSF and PST files from LEOs, DHS offices and elected or appointed officials to a being just another run of the mill private public sector JTRIG targeted pain in the ass.

    About a year later Snowden contacted Laura and soon Glenn began revealing a selection of his momentous secrets to his fellow Americans and world while an illegally detained Julians Assanges Wikileaks brain trust managed Edwards dangerous and improbable journey to relative safety in an airport lounge in the former Soviet Union.

    I had and still have great hope for the Intercept as a vehicle to inform the general public about the manifold significance what has already been revealed (3%) and what has yet to be revealed (97%) about the programs, policies and practices of the US Militarys Public Private Law Enforcement Surveillance Complex which are continuing to adversely impact the human rights of US AND Non US persons.

    Julian was right Pierre. We need a Project PM for the whole Snowden Archive. TPTB for all intents an purposes buried those archives inside the very first amendment protected publications which had initially carried water for Snowden but then went through management or ownership changes which reduced further disclosures to a trickle or full stop 1. Staffing and management changes at the Guardian after GCHQ threatened to shut them down 2. The NYT after the fired Jill Abramson and put the kybosh on hiring a pro Snowden editor away from the Guardian 3. The Washington Post after Jeff Bezos bought them out for HALF of what the CIA pays him EVERY YEAR and 4. Finally at the Intercept where the documents Snowden released now reside in a Safe at First Look under Pierres watchful eye.

    At Firstlook Glenn, Jeremy and Laura appear to have the journalistic freedom they demand and deep pockets to protect their constitutional rights and know we all agree that a good thing. After all many were all really worried about Glen and Laura’s safety there for a while.

    But now that it’s clear TPTBs agenda includes 1. the criminalization of truth telling, 2. encouraging the MSMs willingness to make (and echo) willful fact free accusations against individuals, organizations or nation state actors for short term political advantage and 3. to so transparently deploy US military and intelligence assets domestically to seek political advantage the time has come for more drastic steps to be taken.

    Pierre Omyidar. Release ALL the Snowden Docs to Wikileaks, Cryptome and Canadian Journalists for Free Expression for a World Wide Project PM.
    Trust me you need folks like us with fresh eyes like mine on those.

    And stop selectively blocking our relatively few messages to the Intercept site. It’s beneath what we all had come to hope you’d represent.

    Christian C Holmer -> Ricardo Camilo López: December 26 2016, 2:35 a.m.

    Hello Ricardo. I have a question.

    Approximately when did you notice they started “Changing the background generation of pages so you can’t see messages being blocked”

    Thank you, Christian, for taking the time and putting your mind through your write up. Very good appeal to save what was the initial spirit and apparent political niche of theIntercept. If it would only find receptive ears and minds!

    I am a tech monkey, do corpora research. Also, like most (if not all) of us, I am very angry about what is happening in the U.S. and the world at large right now, so, my general curiosity and own interest have motivated me to try to figure out how and why they were blocking people’s post.

    I did first notice the radical change in the source pages with this article, but I have noticed it myself and noticed other people mentioned their posts not going through, being delayed and even killed. I have been minding the gradual changes and made public right here my observations, but I have to admit that I don’t quite see rhyme or reason in what they do. The only thing, that would make a little sense to me, would be rating a bit down a user who “rants” too much, abuses people’s attention here (like, at times, your truly ;-)), but we know in general that doesn’t seem to be the case either 😉

    I also, had big hopes about what seem to be theIntercept’s mission to keep the truth alive and -irresponsibly- speaking truth to power, while they were at it. I would even say that I thought Western MSM and the MIC would not really mind, but use, try to outsmart them. That they would (“statistically” speaking) “rationally” accept some degree of deviancy from Western MSM (in order “to keep it real”, not too look too much like North Korea), specially if it is (for the most part self-) controlled and shallow. Also, our rulers know well they can count on base stupidity by “We the people”. I never expected for theIntercept journos (for the most part) to kill what it could have become even though I don’t expect to like every article posted. At times I wonder if Robert Mackey was actually pranking, testing us and I still enjoy Zaid Jilani’s and Jeremy Scahil’s post, occasionally the little gossips by Jenna McLaughlin, but as many other people have mentioned they have been gradually killing the spirit of theIntercept for some time already; first, by downgrading the quality of the articles they were posting and then rating, blocking, killing our comments.

    We all know that “they” (the government …) mess with anything that and anybody who doesn’t align with their b#llsh!t, but based on what I can see it it mostly theIntercept sabotaging itself. I am not sure if it is “for the money” (if Omyidar primarily has to do with any of it) and/or that they ran out of spiritual goal, moral stamina. Perhaps, we were too romantic, illusively hopeful about theIntercept, but one of the things I find silly is how they speak about “transparency” (other people’s) not their own and how they were outrightly and obnoxiously supporting Hillary Clinton (against Trump).

    All theIntercept does is “speak to words” and “ethically” try to appeal to the sense of civility and morality of the MIC by publishing articles about them not giving a sh!t about civility and morality. I can’t get what their point and purpose are really.

    A little more than a year later in mid 2013 Edward showed us they could do all that to anyone. It may seem strange but I actually felt RELIEVED to know I had a lot of company.

    Yes, Snowden leaks raised to the level of general societal awareness what people thought to be “movies” and “conspiracy theories”, but as if happens with a disease which is not treated properly when the pathogenic root causes haven’t been handled with, they risk actually helping to habituate what needs to be fought.

    So I went from being an actual government approved pain in the ass (running a SF BOS resolution sanctioned project with direct supervision from the SF City attorneys Office) collecting raw data, server logs, metadata, NSF and PST files from LEOs, DHS offices and elected or appointed officials to a being just another run of the mill private public sector JTRIG targeted pain in the ass.

    We need all kinds of “pain in the ass of our governments” from the approved, to the targeted kinds.

    Pierre Omyidar. Release ALL the Snowden Docs to Wikileaks, Cryptome and Canadian Journalists for Free Expression for a World Wide Project PM.
    Trust me you need folks like us with fresh eyes like mine on those.

    I just hope either “Omyidar” will hear us or the next whistleblowers out there will see what theIntercept has become and take your advice.
