The Absurd Times Pardon for Snowden

Posted in Uncategorized by @honestcharlie on September 16, 2016

THE ABSURD TIMES

Well that settles that!

Pardon my Snowden
By
Warum Nicht
We really don’t have to go into a great deal here, but the film is opening in so many places today, Friday, so here is the entire story.

Just one comment: Snowden did nothing to tell us anything – he just proved what we all already knew. Just look back at the 1998 film ENEMY OF THE STATE, before 9/11 made all this more "acceptable".

Here is a longish interview with Oliver Stone, and a bunch of others on it. It had to be filmed in Germany, of course.
As the much-anticipated movie "Snowden," about one of the most wanted men in the world, hits theaters, we spend the hour with its director, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone, and the actor who played Snowden, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and feature clips from the film that tells the story of how NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden exposed massive surveillance programs by U.S. and British intelligence agencies. "Our goal was to humanize the man, to bring you … the feeling of his life," Stone says of Snowden, who he notes was originally politically conservative and tried to enlist in the military to serve in Iraq but joined the CIA instead.

Two lawyers hired by the City University of New York to investigate alleged instances of anti-Semitism found that expressions of political opposition to the State of Israel are not inherently anti-Semitic, and that such expressions are protected under the First Amendment.

Pro-Palestinian Group Vindicated of Anti-Semitism Charges After CUNY Probe

An independent investigation has vindicated a pro-Palestinian group charged with fostering an anti-Semitic climate at the nation’s largest urban public university.

Two lawyers hired by the City University of New York to investigate alleged instances of anti-Semitism found that expressions of political opposition to the State of Israel are not inherently anti-Semitic, and that such expressions are protected under the First Amendment.

The investigation and the events that triggered it are part of a broader trend of campuses becoming political battlegrounds, where heavyweight Israel advocacy groups, like the Zionist Organization of America, spar with pro-Palestinian activists. Students for…

Election as a Disease

Posted in Uncategorized by @honestcharlie on September 12, 2016

THE ABSURD TIMES

Putin and Obama and Syria peace talks. By Latuff

“Listen world and you shall hear

Of electoral nonsense happening here.

A mainstream media sputtering agog,

With all the wisdom of a flatulent frog.

Our overseas readers, especially, would like to know more about what is happening in our election, things such as positions and policies and the like. Well, they will be disappointed for some time to come and should know that many Americans simply wish it were all over. However, here are a few incidents and observations:

We have a one party system with two wings, Democratic and Republican. The third and fourth parties are not likely to have any real effect.

The Libertarian candidate recently was asked about Aleppo. He asked, “What is Aleppo?” Perhaps he thought it was some sort of Italian sports car?

There has been quite a bit of speculation about Hillary Clinton’s health and Donald Trump said that He would take a physical exam, perhaps implying that she should take one too? Perhaps it would be better for all concerned if he took a written exam.

We have had a great deal of controversy over the issue of 9/11. Wasn’t that the day we staged a coup against Alliende in Chile and replaced him with Pinochet? This was during the Nixon administration. On opening day of our 9/11, now called “Patriots day,” many professional football players did not stand during the national anthem. Donald Trump thinks they should move to another country. President Obama said it is a First Amendment right. Hillary remains silent.

These networks have to keep talking for 24 straight hours every day, and the newspapers are not much more helpful (unless you check some online media). Still, the degeneration of the English language needs some attention. Since when has “optics” become a recognized way of saying “it looks good,” or “It looks bad”? No, we have bad “optics,” which I thought had to do with eyeglasses and telescopes and the like. Nobody writes anything anymore. “Authored” is bad enough, but now they will use “inked,” when none of them have a fountain pen and usually use a keyboard. Also “penned,” seems to becoming popular. Has nobody written anything lately?

This has been personally inked, penned, and authored by the Absurd Times, just for the hell of it. They are all comments that simply used too many characters for Twitter and might me censored by Facebook.

FACEBOOK JOINS THE CENSORSHIP WAR AGAINST LATUFF

Posted in Uncategorized by @honestcharlie on September 11, 2016

Another example. Is Facebook an Israeli or Zionist puppet? (Choose one).

“We were also suspended and got a couple of videos removed over a month ago. The new thing we have noticed is that pictures/videos can now be removed by Facebook even if they follow the so called community standards. This is scary because soon we will not be able to post anything, it seems. So yes we do believe Facebook’s pro-Israel policy is tightening the noose around our freedom of speech.”

Facebook censors cartoon critical of Israel

The Palestine Information Center (PIC), an independent Palestinian news website and network had their Facebook page temporarily suspended for publishing a 2009 cartoon by Brazilian political cartoonist Carlos Latuff. The graphic shows a woman walking and carrying a wounded child in front of an Israeli flag with one of the blue banners of the flag covering her mouth. Latuff’s text issued a warning:…
