Le nègre le plus dangereux: Martin Luther King espionné par le F.B.I.



















Bon texte ce matin de Charles M. Blow dans le New York Times. Il nous rappelle une autre vérité entourant le discours et la présence de Martin Luther King. Personne n'en a parlé hier...

 "The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” so disturbed the American power structure that the F.B.I. started spying on him in what The Washington Post called “one of its biggest surveillance operations in history.” The speech even moved the head of the agency’s domestic intelligence division to label King “the most dangerous Negro of the future in this nation from the standpoint of Communism, the Negro and national security.

 Of course, King wasn’t dangerous to the country but to the status quo. King demanded that America answer for her sins, that she be rustled from her waywardness, that she be true to herself and to the promise of her founding."

Intervention en Syrie: Obama doit être plus convaincant (NY Times)


Dans cet éditorial, on insiste sur le besoin de preuves supplémentaires.

 "For starters, where is the proof that President Bashar al-Assad of Syria carried out the attack? American, British, French and Turkish officials have been unequivocal in blaming Mr. Assad for the attack, which seems likely since there has been no indication that his regime has lost control of its chemical weapons arsenal or that the opposition has the capability to deliver such a weapon. Still, no evidence to support this claim has been released.

 If the Obama administration has such evidence, it should make it public immediately. Given America’s gross failure in Iraq — when the Bush administration went to war over nonexistent nuclear weapons — the standard of proof is now unquestionably higher. We are also eager to hear the conclusions of the United Nations inspectors who are in Syria taking samples from victims and interviewing witnesses. On Wednesday, the Syrian government added to the fog by blaming the rebels for three previously unreported chemical attacks last week. Those claims also must be investigated.

Texte du discours d'Obama pour le cinquantième de "I have a dream"


Un court extrait et le lien pour le discours complet:

 "And because they kept marching, America changed. Because they marched, the civil rights law was passed. Because they marched, the voting rights law was signed. Because they marched, doors of opportunity and education swung open so their daughters and sons could finally imagine a life for themselves beyond washing somebody else’s laundry or shining somebody else’s shoes. Because they marched, city councils changed and state legislatures changed and Congress changed and, yes, eventually the White House changed."

"J'aime être un homme": homosexualité et campagne électorale!


La course pour un siège au Sénat au New Jersey oppose le républicain Steve Lonegan au démocrate Cory Booker, un maire particulièrement populaire. Des rumeurs circulent actuellement au sujet de l'orientation sexuelle de Booker. En commentant ces rumeurs le candidat Lonegan a affirmé sa masculinité en utilisant des images caricaturales... Combien d'hommes parmi vous selon ses critères?

 Logan:

"It's kind of weird. As a guy, I personally like being a guy," Lonegan said. "I don't know if you saw the stories last year. They've been out for quite a bit about how he likes to go out at three o'clock in the morning for a manicure and a pedicure."

 Lonegan then brought up nail care again.

 "I don't like going out in the middle of the night, or any time of the day, for a manicure and pedicure," Lonegan said. "It was described as his peculiar fetish . . .I have a more peculiar fetish. I like a good Scotch and a cigar. That's my fetish but we'll just compare the two."

 Réponse de Booker:

"I love seeing on Twitter when someone says I’m gay, and I say, ‘So what does it matter if I am? So be it. I hope you are not voting for me because you are making the presumption that I’m straight,'"

Obama: entretenir la désinformation...


Pas mal cet article de Dana Milbank dans le Washington post de ce matin... Obama responsable des piètres efforts gouvernementaux après Katrina en 2005?  Pour faire bonne mesure j'ai placé une ancienne couverture du Nwe Yorker pour coiffer cette entrée!

 "This is a preposterous notion. Everybody knows Barack Obama couldn’t have been responsible for the Katrina response because he was in Indonesia in 2005, learning about his Muslim faith in a madrassa. He had moved to Indonesia directly from his home country of Kenya, stopping in the United States just long enough to fake the moon landing."

Le rêve de Martin Luther King: dix moments importants depuis 1963


Je ne sais pas ce que MLK dirait cinquante ans plus tard, mais assurément l'ensemble de son rêve n'est pas encore réalisé. CNN présente ce matin sur son site dix moments importants depuis la marche sur Washington de 1963, certains sont positifs, d'autres pas. L'élection de Barack Obama ne marque pas la fin du racisme et de la discrimination.

 Un extrait:

"Finally, and perhaps most insidiously, Obama's election spawned the view among some whites that no more needed to be done to advance the progress of African-Americans, and that since a black man occupied the Oval Office, anti-discrimination measures such as the Voting Rights Act are were no longer needed.

 To some that may ring true. Others are more inclined to believe Jelani Cobb , director of the Institute for African American Studies at the University of Connecticut, who wrote earlier this year that, "the only impediment to realizing the creed of 'We Shall Overcome' is the narcotic belief that we already have.""

Égypte: les États-Unis peuvent-ils influencer l'armée?


Depuis des jours on affirme que l'administration Obama a une marge de manoeuvre restreinte en Égypte. Vrai que les options sont peu nombreuses, mais cet article du NY Times fait ressortir la dépendance de l'armée égyptienne face aux sommes versées par les américains. Sans ces sommes, pourrait-on continuer à se procurer du matériel militaire sophistiqué? Oui, l'Arabie saoudite a affirmé dernièrement qu'elle compenserait la perte des appuis américains si Obama décidait de couper les vivres, mais les égyptiens ne pourraient plus se procurer le matériel américain que les militaires égyptiens favorisent.

 "In fact, Egypt is so enamored of Apache attack helicopters, M1A1 battle tanks and F-16 fighter jets that exasperated American military officials have been telling generals there for years that they need to expand beyond the hardware of bygone wars and spend more American money on border security, as well as counterterrorism and surveillance equipment and training that a truly modern military needs.

 Either way, a close look at the details of American military aid to Egypt shows why the relatively modest $1.3 billion may give the United States more leverage over the Egyptian military than it may seem, although still not as much as it wants.

 Even if Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf monarchies make up for any aid the United States may suspend, Washington would block Egypt from buying American weaponry with that money — a serious long-term problem for a military that is already viewed as sclerotic and has neglected pilot training so badly that the Egyptian air force has one of the worst crash rates of any F-16 fleet in the world."

Hawaï devient le cinquantième état américain: un autre 21 août (1959)



Avec la signature du Président Eisenhower, Hawaii devenait le dernier état américain. Outre les États-Unis, Hawaii a intéressé trois autres puissances, la Russie, la Grande-Bretagne et la France. Le royaume unifié par Kamehameha en 1810 deviendra peu à êu un protectorat américain sous l'influence de Dole Food Company et d'un débarquement de marines. En raison d'une technicalité, Hawaï n'est pas au plan international un état américain... Hawaï n'a jamais renoncé à son indépendance et n'est devenu un territoire américain que par le liais d'une déclaration unilatérale des États-Unis. Cette anecdote est à la base des revendications de plusieurs américains qui prétendaient en 2008 (et parfois encore) que le Président américain n'était pas né aux États-Unis...

Enfoncer les États-Unis dans la stupidité, objectif des républicains? (NY Times)



Texte très dur de Bill Keller dans le New York Times de ce matin. Il dénonce principalement les attaques de plusieurs républicains contre un programme visant à mieux préparer les jeunes américains à la vie universitaire et au marché du travail. L'initiative The Common Core a été endossée par 45 états américains. Vise-t-on à embrigader les jeunes en précisant ce qu'ils devraient savoir ou en élaborant les objectifs à atteindre? Une vision réductrice...

 "This is an ambitious undertaking, and there is plenty of room for debate about precisely how these standards are translated into classrooms. But the Common Core was created with a broad, nonpartisan consensus of educators, convinced that after decades of embarrassing decline in K-12 education, the country had to come together on a way to hold our public schools accountable. Come together it did — for a while.

The backlash began with a few of the usual right-wing suspects. Glenn Beck warned that under “this insidious menace to our children and to our families” students would be “indoctrinated with extreme leftist ideology.”

(Beck also appears to believe that the plan calls for children to be fitted with bio-wristbands and little cameras so they can be monitored at all times for corporate exploitation.)

 Beck’s soul mate Michelle Malkin warned that the Common Core was “about top-down control engineered through government-administered tests and left-wing textbook monopolies.” Before long, FreedomWorks — the love child of Koch brothers cash and Tea Party passion — and the American Principles Project, a religious-right lobby, had joined the cause. Opponents have mobilized Tea Partyers to barnstorm in state capitals and boiled this complex issue down to an obvious slogan, “ObamaCore!”
