Cenk Uygur on Climate Change: Remember Who Lied to You

Cenk Uygur and “The Young Turks” panelists Cara Santa Maria, Ana Kasparian and Jayar Jackson talk about the latest extreme weather and why public support for addressing climate change isn’t getting the job done. “The problem is, our democracy is gone,” Cenk says. “As we saw on gun control, you could have over 90 percent saying, ‘I want background checks’ and the Senate’s going to say, ‘Suck it. I don’t care.’” Cenk blames the media as well as Congress for perpetuating climate change denial. “Remember who lied to you,” he concludes. “It was those sons of bitches who lied to you for profit — and then we have to deal with the consequences, all of us together.”

From Bilderberg to Bohemian Grove – The Elites “Take A Break”

Via orwellwasright:

With the Bilderberg conference this year receiving far more media coverage than ever seen before, it’s tempting to believe that, finally, the secretive gatherings of the world’s rich and powerful are being exposed. It was certainly a step in the right direction – the more lights shining in the murky shadows of corporate and political subterfuge the better. But another secretive meeting looms on the horizon, one of much older provenance than the Bilderberg group with potentially far more sinister implications.

Recently, a friend of mine brought up the subject of Bohemian Grove. Someone had mentioned it to him in passing and his reaction was par for the course – immediate dismissal that such an event could possibly happen, and that the very thought of it was wild conspiracy talk. “The leaders of the world gathering in the woods to perform occult rituals based on mock human sacrifice?… Read the rest

Homicide Conviction Upheld For Parents Who Only Prayed For Diabetic Daughter

leilani-and-dale-neumannTodd Richmond reporting via the Huffington Post:

A mother and father who prayed instead of seeking medical help as their daughter died were properly convicted of homicide, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled Wednesday in a decision that dramatically limits legal immunity for parents who turn to God rather than science to heal their children.

The decision marks the first time a Wisconsin court has addressed criminal culpability in a prayer treatment case where a child died. The court ruled 6-1 that the state’s immunity provisions for prayer treatment parents protect them from child abuse charges but nothing else, opening the door to a host of other counts.

“No one reading the treatment-through-prayer provision should expect protection from criminal liability under any other statute,” Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson wrote for the majority.

Most states, including Wisconsin, created exemptions from child abuse charges for prayer-healing parents in the 1970s to meet federal requirements.

ZXX: A Typeface To Resist Surveillance

zxxAvailable for free download, designer Sang Mun's ZXX fonts are examples of how to elude character-recognizing artificial intelligence in style:
During my service in the Korean military, I worked as special intelligence personnel for the NSA, learning first-hand how to extract information from defense targets. Now, as a designer, I am influenced by these experiences continue the evolution of my own thinking about censorship, surveillance, and a free society. Over the course of a year, I researched and created ZXX, a disruptive typeface that would be unreadable by text scanning software. It takes its name from the Library of Congress’ listing of three-letter codes denoting which language a book is written in. Code “ZXX” is used when there is: “No linguistic content; Not applicable.”

Surveillance Cameras Wearing Party Hats For George Orwell’s Birthday

Dutch artists Thomas voor ‘t Hekke and Bas van Oerle, who use the moniker FRONT404, adorned the surveillance cameras in their city of Utrecht in adorable party hats for George Orwell’s birthday:

On Tuesday June 25, to celebrate the 110th birthday of George Orwell, surveillance cameras in the center of the city of Utrecht were decorated with colorful party hats! George Orwell is best known for his book ‘1984’, in which he describes a dystopian future society where the populace is constantly watched by Big Brother. By making these inconspicuous cameras that we ignore in our daily lives catch the eye again we also create awareness of how many cameras really watch us nowadays, and that the surveillance state described by Orwell is getting closer and closer to reality.
