Suspected Nazi enthusiast Sebastian Gorka's degree probably fake 26.4.2017 Boing Boing
Adding to the controversy surrounding hyper-sensitive , Nazi-affiliated medal wearing "deputy assistant" to Orange Julius, Sebastian Gorka is now a credible claim he faked his PhD. Gorka has unsuccessfully attempted to assuage fears that he is a yet another Nazi enthusiast in the Trump Administration. Now, suspicions have arisen that he has faked his degree. Andrew Reynolds, a professor of politican science at the University of North Carolina did some digging. It looks bad for Gorka. Via Andrew Reynold's website at UNC : Gorka is Hungarian-English. He gained an American passport in 2012. His nationalist parents fled to London from Budapest in 1956. His dissertation – Content and End-State-based Alteration in the Practice of Political Violence since the End of the Cold War: the difference between the terrorism of the Cold War and the terrorism of al Qaeda: the rise of the “transcendental terrorist” was apparently granted in 2007 by Corvinus University of Budapest. The tract is long on Islamaphobia and the ...

Leaders of the capitalist community must condemn the Dortmund terrorist attack 21.4.2017 Daily Kos
After initial reports that the Dortmund bombing was perpetrated by an Islamist terrorist, it now looks like the bomber adhered to a different ideology—c apitalism : Police in Germany have charged a man suspected of being behind an attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus. Rather than having links to radical Islamism, he was a market trader hoping to make money if the price of shares in the team fell, prosecutors say. The 28-year-old, identified only as Sergej W, was staying in the team's hotel in a room overlooking the street where the explosion took place. Two people needed medical help after three bombs exploded near the bus. The accused bomber apparently believed that his act of terrorism would enable him to gain credit in a culturally shared mythical world of abstract values. While Donald Trump tweets or comments every time a terrorist attack is perpetrated by someone with Islamist ties, he has been curiously silent about this one. Our national leaders must stand up to terrorism by calling it what it ...

How to lose the next war in the Middle East 19.4.2017 Le Monde Diplomatique

Make no mistake: after 15 years of losing wars, spreading terror movements, and multiplying failed states across the Greater Middle East, America will fight the next versions of our ongoing wars. Not that we ever really stopped. Sure, Washington traded in George W. Bush's expansive, almost messianic attitude toward his Global War on Terror for Barack Obama's more precise, deliberate, even cautious approach to an unnamed version of the same war for hegemony in the Greater Middle East. Sure, in (...)

(Photo: Senior Airman David Carbajal / US Air Force ) Make no mistake: after 15 years of losing wars, spreading terror movements, and multiplying failed states across the Greater Middle East, America will fight the next versions of our ongoing wars. Not that we ever really stopped. Sure, Washington traded in George W. Bush's expansive, almost messianic attitude toward his Global War on Terror for Barack Obama's limited approach to an unnamed version of the same war for hegemony in the Greater Middle East. Sure, in the process kitted-up 19 year-olds from Iowa became less ubiquitous features on Baghdad's and Kabul's busy boulevards, even if that distinction was lost on the real-life targets of America's wars -- and the bystanders (call them "collateral damage") scurrying across digital drone display ...
