Our Dark New Normal

Our Dark New Normal | The News You Don't Get On The News | Scoop.it
Mirela Monte's insight:



Fragments of details are still emerging from the story of yesterday's shooting in D.C., which just gets sadder and weirder. What's known: capitol police shot and killed Miriam Carey, 34, an unarmed mother and dental hygienist from Stamford, Conn. reportedly suffering from postpartum depression and other mental health issues. 

So much here is jarring: the growing sense that Carey was likely a victim of her own panicked confusion, the photos of swarming well-armed armies of cops who nonetheless confronted and shot her - with her toddler daughter in the car - the often-nonchalant curiosity of bystanders, the spectacle of a "heartfelt and deeply meant" standing ovation from an ever-hypocritical, mostly white male Congress for the killing of a distraught black woman by a police force intent on protecting them, but currently unpaid. From sea to dysfunctional sea.

Update: The day after the shooting - ie: after the facts about Carey were known - the Senate doorkeeper was handing out "Thank You Capitol Police" buttons.

The World's First Dystopia

The World's First Dystopia | The News You Don't Get On The News | Scoop.it
Mirela Monte's insight:

Romania: The World's First Dystopia

In Romania, which has been a member of the EU since 2007, you can see how companies like Coca Cola, McDonalds, Microsoft, VW, Nestle, Danone and South African Breweries (SAB) have easily swatted aside local competitors. Over 60% of soft drinks and bottled water in Romania are now sold by Coca Cola, the beer market is stitched up by SAB and the other multinationals and over 80% of food is now imported. Microsoft dominates the software market and by investing smartly in government and school relations they have managed to keep Linux based competitors, a far cheaper option, locked out. The EU backs all this up by imposing standards that only the biggest companies can afford; for example, millions of Romanian peasant farmers are no longer allowed to sell their milk, even though it is far superior to anything in the supermarket.

But this kind of multinational-takes-over-new-market scenario is not new. We all know about it. What propels Romania into the category of "World's First Dystopia" is the massive cyanide mining project that could turn Transylvania, one of the most beautiful and pristine parts of Europe, into a dystopic wasteland. It is also a case study in how corporate PR and marketing can convince a population that the destruction of their ecosystem is in their own interest.

The Rosia Montana Gold Corporation, an offshore investment fund, has promised Romanians thousands of jobs, billions in tax dollars and - the most audacious claim that could have come straight out of 1984 - environmental protection. The reality is that 3 villages and 4 mountains will be demolished and a massive reservoir for 214 million tons of cyanide waste will be built (cyanide is used to extract gold from ore). Never before has such a big cyanide mining project been attempted in Europe. Rivers and groundwater in the region, including the Danube, may be poisoned and only about 200 jobs will be created. The tax income from the estimated ₤20 million profit is unknown because the company's contract with the Romanian government is a state secret, and Romania's tax laws are riddled with loopholes.

Romanians protest in Trafalgar Square against cyanide mining in Rosia Montana

Europe's largest gold-mining project plans will see 215 million cubic metres of lake water contaminated 

Hundreds of Romanians protested today in Trafalgar Square against a draft bill passed by their government that will allow a Canadian firm, Gabriel Resources, to create Europe's largest open-cast gold mine in the village of Rosia Montana.

Today's protests were part of a global movement that has seen hundreds of thousands of Romanians demonstrating throughout September, in around seventy-five cities worldwide - with up to 30,000 in Romania’s capital, Bucharest.

Syrian militants and Israel get to keep WMDs

Syrian militants and Israel get to keep WMDs | The News You Don't Get On The News | Scoop.it
- Daniel Pipes, Zionist Neocon, "Western powers should guide enemies to stalemate by helping whichever side is losing, so as to prolong their conflict.”
Mirela Monte's insight:

I sense a possible political upheaval where Americans might come to their senses to realize that a very big change is needed in Washington before any real improvements can ever be made. The usual game here is that their replacements end up being nothing more than wolves in sheep’s clothing. These new actors say what they know the public wants to hear about being anti-Washington, but when they get there they reveal themselves as being more of the same.


AIPAC looks like it will also take a beating as their looking out for Israel’s interest above America’s is becoming more widely understood for what it is…treason. We may see the next round of Congressional elections where being funded by AIPAC will actually taint a candidate, and it should. They don’t give their money out without a contract that the candidate is giving their vote to the Lobby on their key issues, a shame on Congress as an institution, and on the country as a whole.


New Congressional candidates could make demands for a new investigation of AIPAC and why American law enforcement never breaks up Israeli espionage networks a major campaign issue. Maybe the voters will wise up and make it one themselves.

AIPAC Does Not Speak for Me

AIPAC Does Not Speak for Me | The News You Don't Get On The News | Scoop.it
For too long, AIPAC has derived much of its power by purporting to speak in the name of the American Jewish community. AIPAC is, of course, free to continue to push military build-up and endless settlement expansion.
Mirela Monte's insight:

The highly respected Zogby Research Services found in October 2012 that only 23 percent of Jewish Americans believe that AIPAC represents them. Polls have repeatedly shown that the American Jewish community favors an even-handed approach toward Israel and the Palestinians, and is broadly against war with Iran.

AIPAC is, of course, free to continue to push military build-up and endless settlement expansion. But it can no longer claim to do so in our name. Increasing numbers of Jewish Americans are gravely concerned by Israel's occupation of Palestinian land, made possible thanks to American taxpayer money. The sooner the political class in Washington understands this, the better chance we have for U.S. policies that promote the freedom and security of Palestinians and Israelis alike.

Ollie Whiteley's curator insight, November 2, 2013 6:41 AM

This article provides insight into how subsidies are used in industry and shows how many people disapprove of this particular subsidy as, although it would make nuclear energy cheaper in production, the subsidy is from the taxpayers themselves and they are against because of the tragedies in Fukushima as well.
