HOW THE FBI HOME-GROWS TERRORISTS DUPES…

March 18th, 2015

OK. Serious question. Has the Federal Bureau of Investigation discovered, arrested and provided sufficient information to convict a single individual in the United States on terrorism charges that the FBI did not, in fact, actually train to be arrested? Any one? Got a name? Hint. That name is not Sami Osmakac. IN THE VIDEO, Sami […]

BLOGGER(S): 1 SLIMEBALL DMCA ABUSER: 0…

March 10th, 2015

Blogging can feel more than a little David-and-Goliathish most of the time, so reading about Oliver Hotham’s small victory has made my Tuesday. (My blogs—Have Coffee Will Write and The Writing On The Wal use WordPress software but are hosted independently.) After a two-year legal battle, journalist Oliver Hotham and Automattic, owners of blogging service […]

UPDATE: FERGUSON RACIST… WATER WET…

March 5th, 2015

I haven’t written about events in Ferguson, Missouri, since the end of 2014, not because I lost interest, but because the story appeared to gain serious legs. I have continued to monitor the story, and the larger consequences of the murder of Michael Brown, and want to offer this update following the release of the […]

HOW MANY BLACK SITES ARE INSIDE THE U.S….?

February 24th, 2015

This is what we get when the Bush Obama Security Scheme (BOSS) goes domestic. The Chicago police department operates an off-the-books interrogation compound, rendering Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside what lawyers say is the domestic equivalent of a CIA black site. The facility, a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s […]

I DON’T OPPOSE THE DEATH PENALTY…

February 16th, 2015

I think that those who commit murder ought to be swiftly and permanently removed from society in the least expensive way possible. Our criminal justice system is so deeply flawed, however, I simply do not have sufficient faith that convicted murderers are guilty to accept such an irrevocable sentence. Rodney Reed, slated for execution in […]

NEW YORK DEPLOYS BRATTON’S ROUGH RIDERS…

January 30th, 2015

In the 1980’s a high-ranking Marine Corps officer told me of a plan to deploy his Marines across a line (I seem to recall that the line was 65th Street, but I could easily be wrong on that detail) isolating upper Manhattan in case of large-scale civil unrest. New York City Police commissioner Bill Bratton’s […]

WALMART WEDNESDAY FOR 21 JANUARY…

January 21st, 2015

It’s been a busy week in Wally World: the Universe’s source of cheap plastic crap from China. On The Writing On The Wal—the blog USA Today says should be on its readers’ radar—I continue my singular work dedicated to drawing back the curtain on the Bentonvile Behemoth’s corporate disinformation and other flackery. WHERE CAN THE […]

January 14th, 2015

It’s been a busy week in Wally World: the Universe’s source of cheap plastic crap from China. On The Writing On The Wal—the blog USA Today says should be on its readers’ radar—I continue my singular work dedicated to drawing back the curtain on the Bentonvile Behemoth’s corporate disinformation and other flackery. $10,000 A DAY […]

WHAT A CULTURE OF AGGRESSION GETS US…

January 1st, 2015

In one of the two, weekly newspapers that arrive in my mailbox each week, retired police officer Mark Petrus had this to say in a guest column. It is difficult these days to open a newspaper, listen to the electronic media, or scan the Internet without encountering a story or commentary dealing with what some […]

I’M BACK TO THE WRITING ON THE WAL

January 1st, 2015

As we count our blessings on this first day of the year 2015, remember that much of what we earnestly wish to hold tight to—our homes, our jobs, all that we hold dear—we have because union men and women suffered, fought and died for the rights of all.

FERGUSON, CLEVELAND, NEW YORK…
WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON…?

December 31st, 2014

With gracious thanks to Florence Reece and Peter Seeger… Nearly five months have passed since Darren Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown and while the vital conversation in our nation surrounding the events of 9 August continues, I have decided to no longer keep this internal thread stuck to the top of Have Coffee Will […]

ROLDO RIGHTS ON” MAYOR FRANK JACKSON’S
MESSAGE TO THE U.S. AND THE WORLD—FUCK OFF

December 8th, 2014

It’s difficult, if not impossible; to believe that Safety Director Michael McGrath would declare that he won’t resign without Mayor Frank Jackson’s assent. It’s Jackson sticking his finger into the eye of Atty. Gen. Eric Holder and the U.S. Department of Justice. Just as he did to Ohio Atty. Gen. Mike DeWine and DeWine’s report […]

ROLDO RIGHTS ON: NOTHING WILL CHANGE WITH
FRANK JACKSON AS CLEVELAND’S MAYOR…

December 4th, 2014

The solution to the problem of police is that it will require a total change in their culture of operation. It is clear – has been for the last 45 years going back to the cops and their refusal to accept Carl Stokes as their commander—that it isn’t going to change. That was made clear […]

ROLDO RIGHTS ON: DON’T TRUST A GRAND JURY…

November 26th, 2014

Grand juries have a way of telling the history desired by those who hold power. Same as history is most often told. The Ferguson grand jury of Prosecutor Robert McCulloch—who was described by the New York Times as “widely viewed in the minority community as being in the pockets of the police”—seemed to fit the […]

EDWARD SNOWDEN IS NOT UNIQUE OR ALONE…

October 11th, 2014

The investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald has found a second leaker inside the US intelligence agencies, according to a new documentary about Edward Snowden that premiered in New York on Friday night. Towards the end of filmmaker Laura Poitras’s portrait of Snowden – titled Citizenfour, the label he used when he first contacted her – Greenwald […]

NO ONE HIRES TROUBLEMAKERS…

September 20th, 2014

When Precious Daniels lay down in front of the Blue Cross Blue Shield building in Detroit on a chilly morning in November 2009, she wasn’t giving her future job prospects much thought. She was, however, thinking about all of the money the insurance company was spending on its lobbyists. A supporter of the Affordable Care […]

EDWARD SNOWDEN IS NOT OUR PROBLEM…

September 17th, 2014

“Well prior to Edward Snowden, online jihadists were already aware that law enforcement and intelligence agencies were attempting to monitor them.” This point would seem obvious in light of the fact that terrorist groups have been employing tactics to evade digital surveillance for years. Indeed, such concerns about their use of sophisticated encryption technology predate […]
