The vague and distant tremors felt in Beijing might have been mistaken for a train rushing through town. Or joyous celebrations in a stadium packed to the brim with people watching a football game. Or maybe even a low angry growl of a feril dog that had not been fed, warning passersby to stay away.

These were the trepid and barely noticeable rumblings that would bring forth what would soon be known as the “Great ’08, the Quake that Altered the World”.

The 20th century has seen more significant natural disasters than any other century. Some even say combined. It’s because of this escalation in nature’s wrath against mankind that many religious leaders and sects claim that we are approaching what they call the “End Days”. To these people, these are the times when God, Shiva, Allah or even Fenrir come to molest and devour everything that we know because we’ve molested and devoured everything that they’ve given us. The term for this belief is ‘eschatology’ and it’s a prevalent and doom-ridden ideology that has accelerated the end of our world out of a sense of carelessness and negligence. Continue reading

Khadr Tape: The Torture of a Canadian Citizen

Posted on by 0 comment

After 6 years without charges, Omar Khadr is still being held in Guantanamo. We now see that he’s also being tortured and that CSIS is well in the know about how he’s being treated.

Oh, Canada: what are we doing when we let people treat other Canadians like this?

What really set me off when these tapes were released was the feedback of one person on CBC Radio: "We should give Khadr a Genie for the world-class performance that he’s pulled off". Bravo, you thoughtless, ignorant and cruel person. Unfortunately for the rest of us, you represent the views of about a third of Canada’s population.

9/11 really fucked things up for Kite. Well, it fucked things up for a lot of people – 400-odd bystanders locked up in Guantanamo, UN Peacekeeping, the several thousand people that went into work thinking everything was OK in their world, anti-war activists, and so on – but for Kite, 9/11 drastically altered the way he had to do business.

Getting into buildings, be they corporate, government or any other structure that housed information that Kite was hired to retrieve, was a cakewalk a few years ago compared to the environment today. Continue reading

HEADLINE: THE DRAGON IS BUYING … AND ITS ATM IS AMERICA

DATE: June 2008

SOURCE: International News Corporation (INC)

NEWS STORY – China’s Investment Corporation, the privately-held, state-run enterprise that manages the currency reserves of the Chinese government, now has cash reserves in excess of $US 1.7 trillion.

If you’re familiar with counting numbers that big, consider this: if you go by market capitalization, the value of a company based on its stock performance, $1.7 trillion is enough to buy most of the Top Ten companies in the United States outright .

Getting laws passed in the United States that are in your favour is easy. All you have to do is support a non-descript bill that won’t really get a lot of attention and have a friendly Senator tack on an amendment that represents your needs.

The real work is going to all the dinners, dances and other social affairs that take place nightly around Capitol Hill. Political funding today shows it head with donations to specific charities and research groups in the names of certain Senators and Congressmen or elaborate business trips and guest speaking tours in exotic locales, all funded by the organization that ‘wants change’.
