Jeb Bush gets all the Pinocchios for ISIS statements

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush listens to a question during an appearance at The Chicago Council on Global Affairs in Chicago, Illinois, February 18, 2015.   REUTERS/Jim Young  (UNITED STATES - Tags: POLITICS) - RTR4Q53V
Jeb Bush has tried valiantly to shake off his disastrous Iraq statements, including a lame attempt at deflection, sort of a "well, sure my brother screwed up, but it's so much worse under Obama because ISIS!" ISIS, he says, "didn't exist when my brother was president. Al Qaeda in Iraq was wiped out when my brother was president." Our own Jon Perr debunked that statement last week. Now Glenn Kessler, the Washington Post fact-checker, has followed suit, giving Bush four out of four Pinocchios, meaning there isn't even any room for debate how much he's lying about this. The National Counterterrorism Center puts it this way: "Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), also known as the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) and more recently the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), was established in April 2004 by long-time Sunni extremist Abu Mus?ab al-Zarqawi." The NCTC notes that Zarqawi was killed by a U.S. airstrike in 2006 and afterwards his successor announced the formation of the Islamic State.

As analyst Brian Fishman noted in a 2006 report for the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point, the announcement was made on Oct. 15, 2006?more than two years before Bush left office. (This paper, interestingly, was one of the reports that Osama bin Laden had on his bookshelf when he was killed by U.S. forces in 2011.)

"Unfortunately, almost everyone in Washington, including those of us that understood and emphasized the political shifts it had made, continued to use 'al-Qaeda in Iraq' as shorthand for the group because it was widely understood nomenclature among policymakers," said Fishman, who is now with the New America Foundation. "This was a mistake; I certainly regret conceding to convenience at the time."

Fishman added that although the term "ISIS" was not used until 2013, after the group captured territory in Syria, "the Islamic State of Iraq, declared in 2006, was intended to be a sprawling entity like the one we see today. That was its political purpose and ambition. Todays ISIS is the same organization, only stronger."

Oh, and that part about Al Qaeda being "wiped out" by his brother. Nope. Fishman points out that, "despite its setbacks, the ISI was one of the strongest terrorist groups in the world even at its weakest point after the Surge." At least that part of the the Iraq War history of his brother isn't going to be so easy to revise, not like the whole "mistakes were made," "faulty intelligence" canard.

ExxonMobil says mankind has 'enormous capacity to deal with adversity' caused by climate change

Exxon Mobil CEO Rex W. Tillerson addresses reporters at a news conference at the conclusion of the Exxon Mobil Shareholders Meeting in Dallas, Texas May 27, 2009.  REUTERS/Jessica Rinaldi (UNITED STATES BUSINESS) - RTXOO0T
'Gentlemen: To evil.'
ExxonMobil has a plan to deal with climate change. The plan is they're going to do whatever they want, and it sucks to be you. The CEO of one of the world?s largest oil companies downplayed the effects of climate change at his company?s annual meeting Wednesday, telling shareholders his firm hadn?t invested in renewable energy because ?We choose not to lose money on purpose.?

?Mankind has this enormous capacity to deal with adversity,? ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson told the meeting, pointing to technologies that can combat inclement weather ?that may or may not be induced by climate change.?

Until Rex Tillerson sees a gadget that can prevent climate change by burning copious amounts of Exxon-provided oil, he ain't interested. It's up to the kids to adapt to not having a Florida, via technology and whatnot.

I do enjoy Exxon's continued commitment to being flat-out cartoon-villain evil. So much more refreshing than other energy companies' sporadic ad campaigns promising to maybe someday give a damn.

Anti-Hillary stunt backfires on Carly Fiorina

Carly Fiorina
Carly Fiorina hoped to get some attention for her Republican presidential candidacy, which currently has her polling in the low single digits, by taking her relentless attacks on Hillary Clinton to a press conference outside a hotel where Clinton was holding an event. But it seems like Fiorina may not have been ready for the press to notice the nakedness of this particular campaign stunt and the general all-Clinton-all-the-time nature of her campaign: Ms. Fiorina insisted she had planned her trip here ?many, many weeks ago, so perhaps she?s following me.? She said she had lots more to offer than merely Clinton-bashing: ?Anyone who has sat through these avails over many months knows that I will take any question on any subject, and the vast majority of my speeches in front of anyone are about a host of issues.?

About 20 reporters and photographers circled her near a side entrance to the Marriott, leaning in to hear Ms. Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive who spoke softly, at times barely audible.

One reporter asked if she was here because of Mrs. Clinton.

?I planned to be here weeks and weeks ago!? she said. ?I have a luncheon to go to, with the G.O.P. here.?

At this hotel?

?This trip has been on my itinerary for a very long time,? she said.

Yes, here I am, a Very Important Presidential Candidate, standing at the side entrance of a Marriott like I'd planned all along, to show that my campaign has substance beyond attacks on the Democrat who is, in a total coincidence, the only other woman in the race.

On the plus side for Fiorina, getting the attention of 20 reporters and photographers is probably a step up on quantity, even if the quality she offered them was low.

Rand Paul joins Leadership Institute, vows to free American colleges from 'the clutches of the left'

U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) formally announces his candidacy for president during an event in Louisville, Kentucky, April 7, 2015. Earlier on Tuesday, Paul initially announced his candidacy in a post on his website. REUTERS/Aaron P. Bernstein - RTR4WET7
It looks like Rand Paul's campaign advisers have requested he dumb it down a few more notches, lest he be considered too highbrow for the sort of raving lunatics that tend to turn out to vote in the first Republican primaries. He'll be attaching himself to the edjucation is skary movement. ?I refuse to accept that our nation?s colleges will always remain bastions of left-wing extremism. I refuse to allow leftists to brainwash an entire generation of American students into hating our country and our free-market system,? Mr. Paul wrote in an email blasted out Tuesday on behalf of the Arlington-based Leadership Institute.

Mr. Paul goes on to write that he?s joining with the group ?to help liberate our nation?s colleges and universities from the clutches of the left.?

Ah, the secret liberal conspiracy to be liberal at America's youth, teaching them arts and sciences and indoctrinating their young minds with all the secret liberalism that Maxwell's equations or a nuanced understanding of mitosis can impart. The notion that the nation's colleges and universities have been working toward imposing a sort of educational sharia has been in vogue since long before the current generation of Fox News watchers learned that "sharia" was a word, regularly propped up by one ideological nutcase or another who has convinced themselves that their own presented theories on why people with black skin are inferior or why James Madison would have thought such-and-such or why climate change is shut up have not been more widely accepted not because their work was shoddy or their "proofs" tendentious but because of a global liberal science-knowing conspiracy against them, personally, to keep these great conservative truths from being more widely known.

It plays well to the base, though. The idea that book-learners in their ivory towers think they're better than you, or even just the notion that someone who has devoted their entire adult lives to the particulars of one niche of human understanding probably knows more about that topic than you and your Innate Conservative Grasp of All Things can muster, grates horribly on a certain segment of the population. Anti-intellectualism is alive and very, very well in America today, and apparently Rand Paul has appointed himself its champion.

Midday open thread: Drug cartel builds CCTV network; 'clickbait' enters dictionary; microbead ban

Today's comic by Matt Bors is Reasonable measures:
Cartoon by Matt Bors --  Reasonable measures
Mexican drug cartel builds its own surveillance-cam network: Authorities in northeastern Mexico?s Tamaulipas state recently dismantled an internet-operated video surveillance network used by a criminal group to monitor both government security forces and civilian life. The CCTV network comprised 39 cameras, according to El Universal, and is an unprecedented feat of counter-surveillance in an ongoing technological arms race between Mexican and American authorities and cartels.

The cameras could each be controlled wirelessly via modem, video card and data encoder, and power feeder, El Universal reports, and were scattered across Reynosa, a border town and coveted entry point into the United States for crime syndicates trafficking in narcotics and humans.

Germany evacuates 20,000 from Cologne to dig up unexploded WWII bomb: The unexploded US-made device, which lay five metres (16 feet) underground and was discovered Friday, was set to be defused later in the day, and river traffic on the nearby Rhine was to be halted during the operation, city officials said.

Residents living within a kilometre (about half a mile) of the site have been told to leave their homes, among them around 1,100 people from a large old people's and care home, they said.

Senators introduce anti-microbead bill: Senate Democrats have introduced legislation to protect the Great Lakes from the small plastic microbeads used in body washes, soaps and other personal care products to exfoliate the skin.

Sens. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Gary Peters (D-Mich.) unveiled the Microbeads Free Waters Act of 2015 on Tuesday, a bill to phase out the manufacturing and sale of microbeads found in household products.

Rep. Frank Pallone Jr. (D-N.J.) introduced the bill earlier this month in the House.

NRA magazine ads prey on fear: The results of an 18-month survey of advertisements in the National Rifle Association's (NRA) magazine, America's 1st Freedom, squared neatly with the gun group's own tendency to use to fear as a marketing tool.

Media Matters reviewed advertisements that appeared in the NRA magazine from January 2014 through June 2015 and discovered that they appealed to a wide range of fears, including the threat of starvation due to food shortages, the dread of losing the ability to live independently because of declining health, the prospect of a terrorist attack, and the need to carry a collapsible assault weapon in a briefcase for self-protection.

The ads tout a lamp commemorating the Confederacy, overpriced food for hoarding against disaster, supposedly precious stones from the eruption of Mt. St. Helen's and Walther pistol said to violate Newton's third law (for every action, there is a reaction). On today's encore Kagro in the Morning show, our 5/29/14 episode.

Indonesian police use Shootings, killings, beatings, arrests on West Papuan independence rallies

Indonesian police have opened fire on peaceful protesters in Jayapura, with at least four gunshot wounds and one death. West Papuan activists and families have been forced to flee to the jungle for safety. Indonesian security forces are conducting scores of raids, sweeps and offensives against West Papuan civilians. The attacks are happening during the visit of National Police Chief General Sutarman with over 200 people arrested across West Papua. Journalists have also been attacked by Indonesian police according to Amnesty International...Read more at San Fransisco Bay Area Indymedia. The Indonesian Police chief says any plans to free Papua from Indonesia won't be tolerated, including Flag raising ceremonies on the West Papuan national Day, December 1st.

Calls for Independence by West Papuans have been made since the sham "Act of Free Choice in 1969". They have suffered a neglected genocide at the hands of the Indonesian military (2004) with continued Repression (2007). Thousands of Papuans took to the streets in 2010 and in 2011 rejecting special autonomy, demanding a referendum on independence. Indonesia plans to build 1,500 km of new roads in the next two years to accelerate ?development', increase military presence, and open up more illegal logging. Three Papuans highlighted the human rights abuses at the APEC meeting in Bali this year by scaling the Australian Consulate?s fence in the dead of night and hand-delivering a personal plea to open the Indonesian province to world scrutiny.

A new academic law and human rights report A slow-motion genocide: Indonesian rule in West Papua (PDF), details the extent of the genocide and abuse of human rights. (Review by Greenleft) Activists have called for Australia to End pragmatic complicity in West Papua in response to comments by new conservative Prime Minister Tony Abbott. Imprisoned Papuan leader Selpius Bobii also responded saying, "We Live In Terror, Mr Abbott".

Civil Society stages mass walkout protest from Warsaw Climate change negotiations

Civil society organisations abandoned the COP19 climate change negotiations in Warsaw on mass. Members from Greenpeace, Oxfam, WWF, Actionaid, Friends of the Earth, the International Trade Union Confederation (statement) and 350.org all started leaving the conference at 2pm. This is an unprecedented action, the first time several major civil society groups have staged a mass walkout.

Friends of the Earth International highlighted that the Warsaw Climate Change negotiations were failing, with Tension high in Warsaw talks as G77+China walk out. The role of Australia and reduced ambition of Japan  have been widely mentioned. Australia and Canada are seen as the major wreckers, but there has been substantial intransigence from much of the developed world to progressing the negotiations forward on finance, ambition, and a loss and damage mechanism. Poland's Coal Summit has shown the fossil fuel corporatism entwined in this COP with widespread dismay at the coal powered negotiations of COP19 and at UNFCCC official Christiania Figueres who gave the keynote speech at the coal summit

Canadians and Australians protest climate wrecking policies and pipelines

The weekend of 16th and 17th November saw tens of thousands of people in Canada and Australia out in the streets in over 260 protests against the climate policies of these countries. Australia and Canada are seen as the major wreckers in Warsaw at COP19.

The Saturday protests in Canada occurred from coast to coast to Repulse Bay, Nunavut on the Arctic circle, more than 10,000 people gathered in over 180 events co-ordinated by Defend our Climate. Many protests focussed on stopping further expansion of the Alberta tar sands and pipelines to move the bitumenous oil south to Texas, east through Ontario and Quebec, and west through British Columbia. On Sunday, more than 60,000 people attended climate protests across Australia, protesting the attempt to repeal carbon pricing and clean energy programs by the conservative Government lead by Prime Minister Tony Abbott, elected on 7 September this year, who denied any link between climate change and bushfires as unusually early and intense bushfires raged around Sydney.

Civil Society NGO and local Polish activists also staged a Climate Justice march in Warsaw in association with the COP19 climate change negotiations taking place. Super Typhoon Haiyan set the initial mood at the negotiations with Philippines negotiator Naderev Saño (Yeb Saño) saying "time to take action. We need an emergency climate pathway". There is widespread dismay at the coal powered negotiations in Warsaw with Japan and Australia being particularly singled out.

Typhoon Haiyan causes death and devastation in the Philippines

On November 8 Super Typhoon Haiyan made landfall over Guiuan, Eastern Sama province in the Philippines, destroying coastal communities with ferocious winds and a storm surge of 6-7 metres (up to 20 feet). According to Dr Jeff Masters "Haiyan had winds of 190 - 195 mph (315 km/h) at landfall, making it the strongest tropical cyclone on record to make landfall in world history."

Authorities of Tacloban City with a population of 220,000 and capital of Leyte province, gave an early estimate that perhaps 10,000 people died from this one city. Many people were surprised by the huge storm surge tidal waves that inundated much of the city. Many smaller coastal villages were also devastated with most buildings destroyed or suffering severe damage. According to the UN Reliefweb report on 14 November the number of affected people has increased to 11.8 million. The official death count from Typhoon Haiyan is currently 4,460 but with numbers still increasing. There were 921,200 people displaced and 243,600 houses destroyed. A total of 2.5 million people are in need of food assistance.
