Voting for the Lesser of Evils

Submitted by robert shetterly on 21 August 2018 - 12:00am
Since I’ve been old enough to vote -- 50 years now -- I’ve felt, except maybe once or twice, that I was voting for the lesser of evils.

That problem was acute in the run up to the 2016 election, and already I’m hearing people say about the 2018 midterm: no matter who it is, if it’s Democrat, you’ve got to vote for it. We’ve got to cancel congressional support for Trump.

That seems not an unworthy goal.

But let’s think about a democracy constantly providing choices which great numbers of people are uncomfortable with, disappointed in, insulted by, angry about.

Do I really have a vote if I can’t vote for the world I want, a world based in sanity rather than suicidal exploitation and U.S. empire? What does it mean if I can’t vote to grapple with the issues I think most urgent?

Someone might answer, well, write in the candidate then who fits your bill. Really? That’s throwing away your vote as sure as not voting.

It seems to me that when you vote for the lesser of evils knowing full well that one of the candidates is more reprehensible than the other but that neither will solve the serious problems, you have then voted against democracy. You’ve disenfranchised yourself. Haven’t you then turned the fundamental tool of democracy into a wrecking bar to tear it down rather than build it up? To protect yourself against a big blue monster, you’ve tied your fate to a smaller green monster. Or, to save yourself from cancer, you’ve chosen heart disease.

Someone will surely remind me that politics is about compromise. Voting for the lesser of evils is a compromise; that's what we do in politics. Politicians must often compromise. Sometimes that’s a courageous virtue -- the art of the possible. Sometimes it’s a betrayal. But is it the role of citizens to compromise their values and their intelligence? I think my obligation as a citizen may be not to compromise but to adhere to my values, to insist on what I consider moral and sane. If I compromise, I give my elected official permission to compromise even further. These sorts of compromises have brought us to the brink of disaster -- actually beyond the brink for so many people already besieged by climate change or the member of a species made extinct by habitat loss.

We all know now (and if you don’t, you’re living in propaganda land) that we live in an oligarchy. A plutocracy. A military/industrial corporatocracy which determines that we have two corporate parties, with two amenable-to-capitalism candidates, and no viable third party. Voting for the lesser of evils inside that system is a vote for the status quo.

If we show signs of opposing this system by refusing to vote, our friends are outraged: “But what if that blue monster wins?” I say the monster has already won. The monster is the system that is despoiling the earth with dollars and weapons and entitlement.

When I vote, I want to be able to vote not for the lesser of evils but the better of goods. I want candidates who recognize the urgency of the crises bearing down on us. And my choice then is: who has the best plan? I want to simply vote for sanity in defiance of this corrupt system. The essential evil in the system is that we can’t vote to fix it. I can’t vote to get the money out of the system. I can’t vote to indict a government of war criminals. I can’t vote to end an economy based on death.

When we are encouraged to vote for the lesser of evils, we are encouraged to vote our fear not our hope, vote for the status quo not for justice. Or to vote for a person more inclined to do the will of the Pentagon rather than Big Pharma or more inclined to sell out to Citigroup rather than kowtow to Exxon-Mobil.

Someone might say, yes, all that’s true, but we can’t look at that big picture. We’ve got to deal with this election right now. We’ll fix that big stuff later. No, not true. There is no later.

The choice of human survival and the survival of other species is upon us -- the survival of all the plants and animals on the planet who can’t vote. The big issues are the most present. They are the greater evil. Voting for the lesser evil is voting for the greater evil.

But, after all that, am I telling you you should not vote for Democrats, any Democrats, to break the chokehold of the Republicans on Congress? No, I’m not saying that. My own truth telling, and I am being as honest as I know how, runs head on into the nastiness of this moment and the reality of so many social, environmental, legal and political protections being stripped away by our current government. If we vote in Democratic majorities, will we be voting to end U.S. militarism and Empire? No. Will we be voting to make a radical shift in green energy production? No, nowhere near radical enough. Will we be voting to get the special interest money -- which makes the system anti-democratic -- out of the system? No. Will we be voting for national health care? Maybe a little closer.

What this means is that the election, no matter which way it goes, obligates us to citizen action and civil disobedience -- to demand action that will save life and create hope for the future on this ailing planet. Because we can’t vote for the better of goods, inevitably we must vote for greater responsibility for ourselves. The system won’t right this listing ship. Only we can.

We can’t vote for democracy, but we sure as hell can act for it. That’s the choice that isn’t the lesser of evils. It’s the better of goods. It's the vote we've always got no matter what the system gives us.

FBI records records shed light on the agency's impersonation of journalists and documentary filmmakers
Jennifer Nelson |  October 5, 2018
Documents obtained through FOIA lawsuit by the Reporters Committee reveal policies for undercover impersonation of members of the media 
Newly public Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) documents outline for the first time the specifics of the agency's guidelines for impersonating members of the news media in undercover activities and operations. The records detail, among other things, that such activities require high-level approval from within the FBI and Justice Department. The FBI released the guidelines after the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit when the agency failed to respond to a request for records about its impersonation of documentary filmmakers, specifically. Additionally, records recently released in connection with a separate FOIA lawsuit filed by the Reporters Committee show that the FBI has engaged in the impersonation of documentary filmmakers on a number of occasions, though questions remain as to just how frequently the FBI relies on this tactic.
The FBI has engaged in the undercover impersonation of members of the news media for decades, but controversy surrounding the practice was amplified in 2015 afte

NWC Joins SCOTUS Amicus Brief with FBI Whistleblowers
By Aaron Jordan on March 9, 2018
Earlier today, the National Whistleblower Center (NWC) joined a friend-of-the-court brieffiled with the Supreme Court in support of FBI whistleblower John Parkinson’s petition for certiorari, seeking review of the Federal Circuit’s decision denying veterans’ preference-eligible FBI employees the right to raise whistleblowing as an affirmative defense in an appeal to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB).
The amicus brief, filed on behalf FBI whistleblowers Michael German, Robert Kobus, Jane Turner, and Frederic Whitehurst, as well as the NWC and the Project on Government Oversight, details why the Department of Justice’s procedures for FBI whistleblowers are not an adequate substitute for a veterans’ preference-eligible FBI employee raising a whistleblower claim in an MSPB case.

Lt. Col. Parkinson was dismissed from the FBI and sought to raise whistleblower reprisal as an affirmative defense at his MSPB hearing. He was denied the opportunity by the MSPB, won an appeal of that denial before a Federal Circuit panel, but then lost on rehearing en banc. The Federal Circuit overturned, in part, a panel decision and determined that FBI whistleblowers may not raise whistleblower reprisal as an affirmative defense before the MSPB.
The amicus brief chronicles the long-winded paths to justice of four former FBI whistleblowers, including former FBI crime lab expert Dr. Frederic Whitehurst, who bravely blew the whistle on flawed forensic science at the FBI lab; former FBI agent Michael German, who reported the FBI’s illegal recording of conversations in violation of Title III wiretap regulations during a counterterrorism investigation; former FBI agent Jane Turner, who reported to the DOJ Inspector General that colleagues had stolen items from Ground Zero after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks; and retired FBI employee Robert Kobus, who worked at the FBI’s New York Field Office for 35 years and made a protected disclosure regarding some of his colleagues’ abuses of the FBI’s leave policy. Both Whitehurst and Turner hold leadership positions at the NWC.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time the Federal Circuit has issued a decision denying whistleblowers the rights intended by Congress. The Supreme Court should agree to hear this important case in order to correct the Federal Circuit’s dubious decision and to ensure that veterans who work at our foremost law enforcement agencies are fully protected when they blow the whistle.

Top 10 Censored Stories of the Year 
Inside the real fight against #FakeNews.
By Paul Rosenberg

FBI Racially Profiling "Black Identity Extremists"
At the same time that white supremacists were preparing for the "Unite the Right" demonstration in Charlottesville, which resulted in the murder of Heather Heyer in August 2017, the FBI's counterterrorism division produced an intelligence assessment warning of a very different—though actually non-existent threat: "Black Identity Extremists." The report appeared to be the first time the term had been used to identify a movement, according to Foreign Policy magazine, which broke the story.
"But former government officials and legal experts said no such movement exists, and some expressed concern that the term is part of a politically motivated effort to find an equivalent threat to white supremacists," Foreign Policy reported.
"The use of terms like 'black identity extremists' is part of a long-standing FBI attempt to define a movement where none exists," said former FBI agent Mike German, who now works for the Brennan Center for Justice. "Basically, it's black people who scare them."
"It's classic Hoover-style labeling with a little bit of maliciousness and euphemism wrapped up together," said William Maxwell, a Washington University professor working on a book about FBI monitoring of black writers. "The language—black identity extremist—strikes me as weird and really a continuation of the worst of Hoover's past."
"There is a long tradition of the FBI targeting black activists and this is not surprising," Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson told Foreign Policy.
A former homeland security official told them that carelessly connecting unrelated groups will make it harder for law enforcement to identify real threats. It's so convoluted that it's compromising officer safety, the former official said.
"The corporate media [has] covered the FBI report on 'black identity extremists' in narrow or misleading ways," Project Censored noted, citing examples from The New York Times, Fox News and NBC News. "Coverage like this both draws focus away from the active white supremacist movement and feeds the hate and fear on which such a movement thrives."

Cooking with FOIA: The CIA’s TOP SECRET anti-poop diet
Declassified manuals in the Agency archives reveal the “high protein, low residue” diet U-2 pilots used to keep from soiling their suits
Written by JPat Brown
Edited by Beryl Lipton
Practically synonymous with high-altitude espionage, the Lockheed U-2 spy plane played an almost legendary role in the Central Intelligence Agency’s activities during the Cold War, so much so that a 1/6th scale model of the plane currently hangs in the Agency atrium in Langley, Virginia. The aircraft was notoriously difficult to pilot and physically demanding (flights of over ten hours at over 70,000 feet were not uncommon), and a formerly TOP SECRET manual uncovered in the Agency archives outlines a strict regimen to keep pilots fit and healthy.

Brazil’s military dictatorship leaves a paper trail in the CIA archives

October 24, 2018
While Brazilian presidential front-runner Jair Bolsonaro’s overt embrace of authoritarianism may seem aberrant to many foreign observers, it differs only in degree from decades of United States influence in Latin America. Declassified Central Intelligence Agency and State Department records from the midst of the Brazilian military dictatorship reveal an official US policy of support for the very brutality Bolsonaro intends to revive.

The Left Is Warming Up To The FBI. That’s A Mistake.

Terry Albury was a decorated FBI agent with a spotless career and only a few years from being eligible for retirement benefits. Yet as the only African American agent in the Minneapolis field office, he was increasingly unable to overlook systemic racism in the bureau. He was especially disturbed by what he believed was a widespread animus within the bureau against Muslims, particularly the local Somali American community. More chillingly, after serving as an FBI interrogator in Iraq he said he had not only observed anti-Muslim attitudes by U.S. personnel there but also believed the FBI was complicit in torture.
So he did what many public employees who are unable to be complicit in injustice have done: leak information to the media. And for this act of conscience, he was sentenced last week to four years in federal prison for violating the Espionage Act.
One might think Albury would be a hero among progressives. Yet his sentencing comes at an odd time when some in the anti-Trump “resistance” have begun to embrace the security state. The FBI, once the bête noire of progressives who saw it as a threat to civil liberties, now boasts more support among Democrats than Republicans.

FBI Agent Who Outed Bureau’s Racial Profiling Sentenced to 4 Years for Leaking Classified Documents
By Tia Berger - 
October 21, 2018

The prosecution claimed Albury stole more than 50 classified documents and shared national defense information to a reporter from the online news outlet Intercept. One of the documents classified as “secret” included information on how to the FBI assesses confidential informants and a document “relating to threats posed by certain individuals from a particular Middle Eastern country.”
Albury told the court he leaked the documents because he felt the FBI policies were an act of racial profiling which he regarded as “suspicion” and “disrespect.” His attorneys said Albury acted out of “conscience” and was troubled by the racism within the bureau.

9/11 and Other Deep State Crimes Teleconference

Draft Agenda for 10/31/18 Teleconference

8pm (ET)/5pm (PT) Teleconference # (641) 715-0632 Access code: 551571#
[Note: Some telephone service providers block access to this teleconference service, or require additional charges. If you encounter any of these difficulties, please try calling this alternative number: (716) 293-9623. You will then be required to key in the original phone number above before entering the access code. Please inform of us of any technical difficulties you encounter in accessing the teleconference.]

Greetings all,

Our teleconference's originator, Jonathan Mark, has been doing yeoman's work for many years trying to bring the U.S. moon landing question to the fore of Truth movement consciousness. Recently, he conducted a sterling interview with Mass
imo Mazzuco, who has recently lent his consummate videographic talent to this cause, releasing a monumental new film called "American Moon." Those of us who have seen it are very impressed, to say the least. Unfortunately, Massimo cannot join our regular teleconference to discuss his latest cinematic masterpiece because of the time lag between us and his Italy, so please mark your calendars for Sunday 11 November, when we plan a special teleconference at 1pm Eastern time to give Maestro Massimo our full attention, and engage him with our questions. This film can be purchased for $19 from amazon.com ...clicking on the image at right should take you there.... Please note that it cannot be viewed or posted online, however, Max does explicitly permit purchasers to copy and distribute it!

Leading off this Wednesday's teleconference will be Richard G. Ellefritz, assistant professor of sociology at the University of the Bahamas. Richard's been tracking the 9/11 Truth movement for some time. He'll share his take on the contretemps between truthers and debunkers, particularly in regard to WTC building 7, as well as his thoughts on the use by detractors of the term "conspiracy theorist" to dismiss those of us who call into question the official version of events like 9/11. For relevant examples of Richard's scholarly work on these subjects see here and here.

Next the illustrious Bonnie Faulkner brings us up to speed on the scandalous cancellation of what is arguably the most Pacifica mission-driven program to ever hit the airwaves, Guns and Butter. KPFA listeners are still up in arms over this egregious decision by the station's management to peremptorily deny them this time-honored and extremely popular, impeccably produced offering, which week after week fearlessly explores ground that even many alternative media sources fear to tread.

Then, with US mid-term elections looming on the horizon, we'll hear a report about election fraud from Robert Fitrakis, an American lawyer and professor of political science whose most recent book (written with Harvey Wasserman) is called The Strip & Flip Disaster of America's Stolen Elections: Updated "Trump" Edition of Strip & Flip Selection 2016.

Finally, we'll hear brief reports from those of us who participated in the various 9/11 anniversary events across the country, as we ran out of time for this item last month.

As always, we'll reserve time at the end of the call for your announcements.

Please join us Wednesday night for these latest currents in the Truth movement!

Craig McKee

The minutes of the July 25, 2018 conference call were APPROVED.

The draft agenda was APPROVED.

Reflections on the deep state
Mick Harrison of the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry gave a talk about his thoughts on the deep state. He also discussed developments with the committee’s Grand Jury petition.

Hall’s story
Professor Tony Hall brought the call up to date on what has happened with his efforts to fight his suspension by the University of Lethbridge. He announced that he has decided to retire from teaching in October.

Anniversary events
Barbara Honegger gave a summary of a variety of events being held in conjunction with the 17th anniversary of 9/11. She also discussed the memorandums that have been sent to President Trump as well as plans to create a newsletter for the Lawyers’ Committee.

Response to retraction demand
Wayne Coste told the teleconference that he apologized to Craig McKee for his claim that McKee had “frequently apologized” on the teleconference for “not having any evidence” to support his position that no 757 hit the Pentagon on 9/11. Coste sent out an email to this effect to the 43 people who originally got the email containing the false allegation. However, he also referred those people to a new website he created to attack McKee with the URL truthandshadows.net (McKee’s site is truthandshadows.com). McKee objected to this as well as the absence of a retraction of the false statement.

Coste made a proposal that discussion be closed and this was defeated. McKee wanted to respond to statements he felt were false from Coste but this was ruled out of order because it was not on the central point of the discussion. McKee challenged the ruling, and it was overturned, allowing him to respond to the points he felt were false.
A motion was made to suspend discussion of the subject, to be taken up again on the September call.

Announcements 1 Ken Freeland informed the group of the passing of Dan Barnum, who was a prominent truther from Texas and a member of the board of directors of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.
Craig McKee mentioned two websites that have been taken down by Wordpress: americaneveryman.com and kendoc911.wordpress.com.
Barbara Honegger announced that a man named Robert Alexander got in touch with Lawyers’ Committee to say that he saw alleged 9/11 hijacker Nawaf al-Hasmi and Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia walk into his place of business in San Diego in January 2000. He has produced a sworn affidavit to this effect.
4 Malcolm Arnold recommended three recent films: Fahrenheit 451, Death of a Nation, and Spike Lee’s Black Klansman (which features footage from the Charlottesville event). Call began at 8 p.m. EST and adjourned at 10:20 p.m. EST/5 p.m. to 7:20 p.m. PST

Audio of the August 29 call can be heard here: http://www.houston911truth.net/audio/082918.mp3.

This week’s FOIA round-up: Amazon pitches facial recognition software to Immigration and Customs Enforcement and widespread sexual abuse of students by Chicago Public Schools employees

by Paxtyn Merten
October 26, 2018
In this week’s FOIA round-up, emails show correspondence between Amazon and Immigration and Customs Enforcement representatives regarding the tech giant’s facial recognition software, public and confidential data from Chicago revealed a decade of sexual abuse of students throughout public schools, and a significant amount of National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s historical artifacts have gone missing or been taken in the agency’s lifetime, highlighting flawed storage and tracking procedures.

http://www.altoonamirror.com/news/local ... aw-career/


Walther, 42, a 1994 Hollidaysburg Area High School graduate, has spent his professional career in Washington, D.C.
Today he lives in Arlington, Va., and is a partner at Jones Day, a high profile law firm in the nation’s capital.
At Jones Day, he often handles sensitive U.S. and multijurisdiction matters that could significantly impact a company’s health and reputation. He is an accomplished investigator and trial lawyer with significant experience investigating and defending health care fraud, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, securities fraud, False Claims Act and other financial fraud, antitrust, and corruption matters, according to the Jones Day website.
Walther often defends companies that are facing criminal prosecution and civil liability from numerous government agencies and civil litigants in multiple countries. In these matters, he works closely with clients to coordinate criminal defense and civil litigation strategies that will most effectively represent the clients’ various interests around the world. He has conducted fraud and corruption investigations in the U.S. and more than 25 other countries.

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/re ... bc94852646

In the 1st District, Wallace faces Republican Brian Fitzpatrick, a former FBI agent who won a seat in Congress previously held by his brother in 2016. But Fitzpatrick doesn’t want voters to focus on his party affiliation. In a 90-minute debate Friday, he mentioned belonging to the “Problem Solvers Caucus,” an oft-mocked group of moderate members, 11 times, once referring to it as “the only thing that’s going to save this country.”
That message fits with Fitzpatrick’s overall strategy, which includes winning endorsements from liberal-leaning groups and emphasizing his vote against the Republican plan to repeal Obamacare. In fact, the word “Republican” never appears on his campaign’s website, but endorsements from gun control groups and unions do. (His campaign didn’t respond to an interview request.)
Wallace dismisses Fitzpatrick’s moderation as a fig leaf, repeatedly noting the incumbent votes with President Trump more than 80 percent of the time and voted for House Speaker Paul Ryan on the floor.

Phillips: May not have heard Notre Dame students took a knee Saturday, but you need to know the religious reason why


NOV 14, 2018 | 7:00 AM 

Part of the reason the students were kneeling is due to a recent police brutality incident that took place in the state involving white officers and a man named Mario Guerrero Ledesma.
Last week, Pro Publica reported on a video that showed officers in Elkhart, Indiana beating Ledesma inside the station, leaving him bleeding for six minutes.
But despite the reasoning behind the students’ decision to kneel, far too many times over the past few years we’ve seen students punished for participating in the peaceful protest.
Last year, two black high school football players were kicked off their team for kneeling and raising their fists during the anthem in Texas. The same thing happened to Gyree Durante, who wound up being kicked off his Division III football team at Albright College in Pennsylvania for taking a knee.

Withey, who has written a book on the murders, said he later discovered through his own work and FBI records that Forsythe, now deceased, was an FBI informant, with a specific identification number.
He said one of the lingering questions is how Forsythe happened to be at the scene of the murders and whether it was tied to work for the FBI.

Joe diGenova: 'Cardinal' James Comey -- The man who destroyed the FBI

James Comey politicized the FBI, America’s premier law enforcement agency. It started on July 6, 2016, when he usurped the authority of Attorney General Loretta Lynch in violation of the Constitution, the law and DOJ regulations.

He destroyed Hillary’s campaign when he unethically and unprofessionally described her conduct with pejorative words such as “criminal” and then illegally exonerated her of the crimes.

Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Alleging FBI Role in 2015 Terror Attack in Texas
Injured security guard wanted to know FBI's actions in lead-up to the atta

BY: Todd Shepherd
January 5, 2019 5:00 am

Shortly after the "Muhammad Art Exhibit" event was announced in early 2015, the undercover agent who had been infiltrating the small cell of radicals texted Simpson, saying, "tear up Texas."

Additionally, the undercover agent was in a separate car directly behind Simpson and Soofi when they opened fire and had been taking pictures of the attackers' car just seconds before the shooting began.

When the first shots were fired, the undercover agent fled his own vehicle, but was apprehended by local police, at which point the agent told police he was undercover with the FBI.

F.B.I. Wiretap Recorded Suspect on Eve of Bike Path Terror Attack

The Uzbek man charged with using a truck to kill eight people on a Manhattan bike path last year was recorded on an F.B.I. wiretap the day before the attack and was heard on other calls going back three years, according to two court filings by defense lawyers.

The filings do not reveal the contents of the conversations or whether the man, Sayfullo Saipov, 30, was overheard making threats or talking about an impending attack. Still, the filings suggested that Mr. Saipov was in touch with other people under F.B.I. surveillance
