Fucking BRUJA. Fuck the Clintons™ all the way back to their slave-owning ancestors.

In addition to her bold confession and Clinton’s embrace of the far-right narrative in the Honduran episode, the Latin America chapter is considerably to the right of even her own record on the region as secretary of state. This appears to be a political calculation. There is little risk of losing votes for admitting her role in making most of the hemisphere’s governments disgusted with the United States. On the other side of the equation, there are influential interest groups and significant campaign money to be raised from the right-wing Latin American lobby, including Floridian Cuban-Americans and their political fundraisers.

BTW:

The homicide rate in Honduras, already the highest in the world, increased by 50 percent from 2008 to 2011; political repression, the murder of opposition political candidates, peasant organizers and LGBT activists increased and continue to this day. Femicides skyrocketed. The violence and insecurity were exacerbated by a generalized institutional collapse. Drug-related violence has worsened amid allegations of rampant corruption in Honduras’ police and government. While the gangs are responsible for much of the violence, Honduran security forces have engaged in a wave of killings and other human rights crimes with impunity.

Despite this, however, both under Clinton and Kerry, the State Department’s response to the violence and military and police impunity has largely been silence, along with continued U.S. aid to Honduran security forces. In “Hard Choices,” Clinton describes her role in the aftermath of the coup that brought about this dire situation. Her firsthand account is significant both for the confession of an important truth and for a crucial false testimony.

Que se muera.

Just reading about the lengths Chinese people went to to gain entry to the United States during the period of their exclusion - apparently there was a Chinese Mexican called Jose Chang who made a good living helping Chinese people “pass” as Mexicans.  It’s really fascinating how people found ways of circumventing these absurd rules over human movement… also says a lot that the immigration officials apparently found it “impossible” to tell the difference between Chinese people and Mexicans. Mexican immigration into the US was fundamentally unrestricted at this time, but there was mass hysteria over Chinese immigration, even though Chinese labour was in massive demand and businesses were complaining that they had to turn down contracts because they could get enough Chinese workers. Goes to show how the interests of the racist state and capital don’t always align.

Project 2010 (Winning the World Cup by 2010: Soccer’s Equivalent to the Apollo XI Moon Landing)

Facing pressure to combat drug use and sexual assault at the Air Force Academy, the Air Force has created a secret system of cadet informants to hunt for misconduct among students.

Cadets who attend the publicly-funded academy near Colorado Springs must pledge never to lie. But the program pushes some to do just that: Informants are told to deceive classmates, professors and commanders while snapping photos, wearing recording devices and filing secret reports.

For one former academy student, becoming a covert government operative meant not only betraying the values he vowed to uphold, it meant being thrown out of the academy as punishment for doing the things the Air Force secretly told him to do.
