Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the news and commentary audio files.

» For the second time in Space Shuttle Atlantis' final flight the mainframe computer crashed. It caused the crew to lose some of their sleep but now the data has been transferred to another of the five computers available on board. More on the soon-to-be history Space Shuttle program and the American space program in the commentary.

» The other day senate majority leader Eric Cantor was scolded and walked out on by the president during the debt limit talks. Yesterday, Cantor did not even speak to the president. There will be no meeting today and everyone is hanging fire on Republican House Speaker Boehner's explanation of the dispute to the media. SOME PEOPLE think there's an internal schism in the Republican ranks regarding the differences between the demands of Senator Boehner and the more radical stance taken by his second Eric Cantor. The president will also appear on the airwaves to explain his side of the story.

Meanwhile there is an attempt at a constitutional coup in progress as Republican senator from Kentucky Mitch McConnell says "Now is the moment. No more games. No more gimmicks. The Constitution must be amended".

» The News Of The World/NewsCorp/Rupert Murdoch scandal in Britain fueled by the hacking of a murdered British girl's email account is coming to America. Apparently the staff at NOTW bribed the police for various kinds of information and more. Bribing a police officer is a major crime in Britain. Not only does the British Parliament want to speak with him, the FBI wants the opportunity too because (among other things) in the US Murdoch's companies, doing business as FauxNews, The Wall Street Journal, and other media assets "...come under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, a Watergate-era law which makes it a crime for U.S. companies to participate in bribery abroad..."? Read about it.

Julian Assange of WikiLeaks, also currently under the 'heel of the British court system' has something to say that the FBI probably does not want to hear:
Julian Assange appeared at a press conference in London today to talk about WikiLeaks’ legal challenge to Visa and Mastercard, which have been blocking payments to the whistleblowing service for months in what its founder describes as an “economic blockade”.

He contrasted the payment firms’ stance on WikiLeaks – which he claims comes after political pressure from the US – with the phone hacking case at Rupert Murdoch’s UK newspapers.

“WikiLeaks and its employees have not been charged with any illegal activity,” he said. “Compare that to News International who has had employees and contractors imprisoned for illegal activity and yet still we do not see US financial companies cutting off their services to News International. Why not?” [Financial Times UK (free signup required)]
Yours truly comments:
"Mr Assange appeared to suggest that the nature of the target justified the means – ruling a murdered schoolgirl’s mobile phone out, but governments in..."
There IS a difference you know? If you don't you have no business in the journalism business.

Further, IF that IS what Julian Assange indeed suggests, I back him in that assessment of 'who does what, with which, and to whom" one hundred percent.

A murdered schoolgirl's phone is NOT subject to 'whistle-blowing' by a newspaper... It's subject to "Sensationalism".

A government which allows MURDER (the Collateral Murder video in particular) IS subject to what is commonly known as 'Whistle-blowing'. Since the US government provides no SAFE (as in 'you won't get found dead in a ditch in New Jersey' safe) way for anyone in the country to do so, there HAS TO BE another way for a citizen to participate.

Julian Assange has provided it. It will not go away.

It's supporters are 'legion' (snicker)

Cash may be at root of Ahmed Karzai's murder

Locals say disputes within president's clan over the distribution of spoils from corruption - not a Taliban plot - led to his assassination

By William Marsden, Postmedia News

The streets of Kandahar City lay empty and ghostlike Wednesday as Afghan President Hamid Karzai wept over the body of his half-brother, Ahmed Wali Karzai, whose reign as the strongman of Kandahar ended abruptly this week when an associate pumped three bullets into him.

Ahmed Karzai's funeral brought out several thousand mourners -all men -including senior Afghan ministers. As military helicopters hovered overhead, the dignitaries joined a cavalcade of buses and cars in a procession to the tiny Karzai family village of Karz, about 30 kilometres outside Kandahar.

Here Karzai stopped momentarily to appeal to the Taliban "to join us and work together for the prosperity of the country."

Back in Kandahar City, the cradle of the Taliban, coalition and Afghan soldiers and police patrolled the streets, throwing such a heavy security blanket over the city that most Afghans remained home. Yet as Ahmed Karzai's body was lowered into the ground, there were increasing doubts about the Taliban's claim that they are responsible for his assassination... [In Full]

Already, RATR has formed a coalition with the Foundation On Constitutional Reform to create a new mega-movement of grassroots activists...

The goal: To force every single Democratic Party candidate to sign a pledge to raise taxes on the top .1% riches Americans, so that they pay the same tax rate they would have paid under President Eisenhower, during the Golden Years for America’s middle class. In other words, the richest Americans would have to pay a 91% tax rate again... [In Full @ The eXiled]
Which leads, without too much of a stretch, to this last item:

A shift in revolutionary tactics.

Alright you 90,000 redeemers, rebels and radicals out there,

A worldwide shift in revolutionary tactics is underway right now that bodes well for the future. The spirit of this fresh tactic, a fusion of Tahrir with the acampadas of Spain, is captured in this quote:
"The antiglobalization movement was the first step on the road. Back then our model was to attack the system like a pack of wolves. There was an alpha male, a wolf who led the pack, and those who followed behind. Now the model has evolved. Today we are one big swarm of people." — Raimundo Viejo, Pompeu Fabra University Barcelona, Spain
The beauty of this new formula, and what makes this novel tactic exciting, is its pragmatic simplicity: we talk to each other in various physical gatherings and virtual people's assemblies … we zero in on what our one demand will be, a demand that awakens the imagination and, if achieved, would propel us toward the radical democracy of the future … and then we go out and seize a square of singular symbolic significance and put our asses on the line to make it happen.

The time has come to deploy this emerging stratagem against the greatest corrupter of our democracy: Wall Street, the financial Gomorrah of America.

On the 17th of September, we want to see 20,000 people flood into lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months. Once there, we shall incessantly repeat one simple demand in a plurality of voices.

Tahrir succeeded in large part because the people of Egypt made a straightforward ultimatum – that Mubarak must go – over and over again until they won. Following this model, what is our equally uncomplicated demand?

The most exciting candidate that we've heard so far is one that gets at the core of why the American political establishment is currently unworthy of being called a democracy: we demand that Barack Obama ordain a Presidential Commission tasked with ending the influence money has over our representatives in Washington. It's time for REPRESENTATION NOT CORPORATION...
