Jeff Bezos’s leaked ‘Penis Selfies’ exposed (so to speak)


And it couldn’t have happened to a more worthy putz…er…peckerwood.  The wealthiest man in the world treats his wage slaves like…slaves, including surveilling them in the work place, including with wristbands that monitor their hand movements to speed up work in Amazon warehouses.  This story has many faces by now; here are a few.  Oh, but first: it may be that Bezos hasn’t disavowed the selfies, so he may not be ripe for what I’d advised Anthony Weiner back in the day, and that was to claim: “Hey, that’s  not my weiner; mine’s much bigger!

Nuclear Madness Rising

‘US deploys “usable” nuclear weapon amid continuing war threats against Iran’, 1 February 2020, Bill Van Auken, wsws.org

“The Pentagon deployed a new, smaller nuclear warhead aboard the ballistic missile submarine USS Tennessee as it sailed into the Atlantic last month in the midst of the spiraling crisis with Iran. The weapon, known as the W76-2 warhead, has an explosive yield of roughly five kilotons, a third of the destructive power of the “Little Boy” bomb that claimed the lives of some 140,000 people in Hiroshima in 1945.

Lord Noam & Co. v Howie Hawkins: #Epic Hubris


A recent email from Howie to supporters:

‘Dear Wendy,

If you thought Bernie Sanders was the only one facing the wolves this election season, let us inform you that he’s not.  It’s become pretty obvious that there’s all-out war against Bernie Sanders, and the DNC’s picks for the committees that will oversee nomination convention business certainly underscores this reality. And now with Barack Obama threatening to “go public” on his opposition to Sanders, you know the fix is in.

Last week in an open letter, Noam Chomsky, Barbara Ehrenreich, and other progressive luminaries insisted that Howie Hawkins and the Green Party vote Democrat for president in battleground states.

Morpheus Visits a Young Boy

(a Sunday vignette reprise from 2013)

“Mama!  Maaa-ma!” he cried from the kids’ dark bedroom.  I went to him; he was curled up on his knees on the top bunk bed, his face streaming tears.

“Hey, Jobie…what’s going on?  I’m here…it’s mama; are you awake?”  I reached up for him so that he could feel the weight of my hands, and know I was there.  His eyes and the tears on his cheeks caught the bits of light coming through the door.

A preview of the lofty conference from wsws: ‘Climate change “spin” as Davos gathering confronts mounting environmental and economic crisis’, Nick Beams, 20 January 2020
“The World Economic Forum (WEF), which holds its annual meeting this week in Davos, Switzerland, has tried in recent years to feign concern about the welfare of society as it brings together the ultra-wealthy, government and media representatives and the heads of major corporations to defend the profit system. This year’s gathering is no exception.
