...But of these sophisms and elenchs of merchandise I skill not...
Milton, Areopagitica

Except he had found the
standing sea-rock that even this last
Temptation breaks on; quieter than death but lovelier; peace
that quiets the desire even of praising it.

Jeffers, Meditation On Saviors



Morton Abramowitz, Eric Edelman and Blaise Misztal:

You see, you can’t have it both ways. You can’t establish the rulers and ownership and agenda-setters for these publications, aka US media, and then go back and trust them when they begin to sell you a whistleblower or a leak as the real deal.
Mort Abramowitz is a known neocon, Israel lobbyist, CIA and State Department Operative, and PNAC signatory, and has been one of Fethullah Gulen’s main handlers and backers.

Morton Abramowitz, Eric Edelman and Blaise Misztal:
Staying silent, out of fear that speaking out would harm some short-term interests, risks Turkey’s longer-term stability.
The "Zionists" can walk the Secretary of State of the United States back and forth across the world stage. The prospect of their having enough power to do similar things to the relatively insignificant media shouldn't be anything but a foregone conclusion.
Scare quotes because it isn't confined to the Zionist program. The harm of Sheldon Adelson isn't a result of his Zionist chauvinism. That's a symptom of a much deeper pathology.

Jimmy Carter's triumph over the Guinea worm has so many things to teach the rest of us, as we struggle with parasites and the infection of our bodies, literal and figurative, and the bodies of our children and the body of their future, by parasites.
A very important lesson from the Guinea worm,and other parasitic infections, is the hi-jacking of the conscious decision-making of the host.
Your leg is hot, burning and itching unbearably, you want to scratch it, and keep scratching it until you break the skin, and you want to cool it off, get it cooled off by putting it in the river, you want to scratch your leg and put it in the river.
This is the biological strategy of the Guinea worm, to create that desire in its host. It does this by hi-jacking certain pathways in the nerves of the leg.
Because once it gets you to scratch that open sore into your leg, and then put your leg in the river, it can emerge and lay its eggs there, and continue the cycle of its life. Satisfied worm.
Parasites are older than mammals, that's important to consider as well.
As above, so below. That's also very important.
