Trump and the Post-Factual (tags)

Trump's politics is naive and skeptical, gullible and cynical. Trump's relation with truth is like a generalization of conspiracy theory assumptions that see manipulative-conspiratorial activities at work behind observable reality. Beware pathological narcissists & path paranoids!

The Way to Authoritarianism is Paved with Lies (tags)

Lying is part of the human condition. But democracy is in peril when politicians make lying into a "business principle." Lying is a second nature for Trump. Trump lies strategically and doesn't have a bad conscience. For Trump, the borders between true and false disappear.

War on Facts (tags)

Trump's War on Facts may leave behind greater damage than Bush's War on Terror. While Bush and Rove created a fantasy world, Trump created a never ending nightmare. Trump is a semi-fictional figure. His election promises were fictional like his deportment as self-made man.

Ten facts about SJP (Students for Justice in Palestine)

Who declares themselves to be the ultimate-only-valid-authority here on current wars elsew (tags)

So many good fotos shared about the most recent and continuous conflicts, be they about Israel and Palestine, about Ukraine and Russia, about anyplace ELSE than in the UStatesA. Each commentator claiming to know ‘the facts’, the holy only truth, the right answer, the wrong ‘other’ or the ‘poor victim’. Exhortations and declarations are good reading on Indy but many forget that opinions and alliances do not make honesty, impartial research, ‘facts’ and reality that will be believed …later. Like all the FIA hindsight revealed, so much is said by media and individual common people writing here are arrogantly acting as-if they were the One and Only One who is RIGHT! …huh ? how many ‘rights’ are there here and how long does that claim last over even a few years or months of time ?

Why is LILA Garret, PKFK programmer, being so maligned on Indymedia?? (tags)

Is it not ok to be jewish and be programmer on KPFK? Or to admit this openly ? Or is it the older-strong-willed-woman opposition being played out again ? Could be called the Hillary-syndrome, but Lila may be for Obama instead ? So why is she hated so loudly here?

US Climate Science Reduced to a 'Pack o Lies' (tags)

by Don Beck "It seems more like Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union than the United States" - Dr. James Hansen, NASA climatologist Keep the facts of global warming away from the American people.....they can't handle the truth. That is the message we are getting from this Administration who have placed political appointees to head key agencies in order to filter and even alter the scientific facts. In February, the leading climatologist at NASA, Dr. James Hansen testified to a congressional committee in a hearing looking into the Bush

The US Government's Usage of a Hydrogen Bomb at WTC (tags)

Our government is using and has used 3rd or possibly 4th generation hydrogen bombs domestically and internationally. The evidence for international usage is not quite as strong as the domestic usage, but when domestic usage is considered, the international usage seems inescapable. The process of exclusion based on the known facts leaves only one viable option for the destruction of the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings - a relatively pure hydrogen bomb.

Micheal O'Riordan. Facing political facts (tags)

Micheal O'Riordan, the leader of the Irish Communist party has just died. He was one of the Irish men who fought in the Spanish civil war against Franco. This gave him a certain aura. In the past ten years he has become a sort of warm and fuzzy symbol for the social democratic left, and the leadership of such outfits as Sinn Fein. The correspondence on Indymedia in Ireland about him is pretty much subservient. What a wonderful and determined man of the left he was; along these lines. In order to bring some balance to the discussion I sent the comments below to Irish Indymedia. I felt that it was necessary to take a stand. It is not acceptable to let the lives of the millions of workers and revolutionaries who were slaughtered by Stalinism to go unmentioned. Nor can it be ignored that Stalinism was a catastrophe in other ways. Its disastrous failure ushered in the new capitalist regimes in the former Stalinist world with all the horrors these are bringing with them.

Understanding the Middle East (tags)

If any one person, viewpoint or source had the “straight story” about the Middle East, it would an easy matter to solve all our problems.

Ann Coulter: The Conservative's Muse (tags)

Ann Coulter is on a roll, however. She has clearly orchestrated her career as the outspoken, muse of the far right; the babe of the neo-cons, the conservative's Tokyo Rose. Some might suggest she saw the writing on the wall and knew she had a good thing. Perhaps so. Perhaps not. Perhaps she believes the bilge she tosses out as truth. That possibility is even more startling.

Zizek on Chomsky (tags)

I pulled this from the NY-IMC, and though I think Zizek has issues as well, i really enjoyed reading this little critique of Chomsky. His cult of personality is a little much. I really enjoyed another theory book called- The End of Education by William Spanos. Writen by a much less known theorist (another reason to dislike zizek and Chomsky) this book goes into detail about some of what zizek says-while talking about 60s political movements and their "failure of the radical moment."
