“Senor Cafiero, you are a historic leader of the Peronist party. How do you explain Carlos Menem’s treason? It happens frequently in the political life of every nation. There’s a small French book, “In Praise of Treason,” where they prove that treason is part and parcel of [WiP] politics. To succeed, you have to lie. If you say what you think [that voters & officials must cooperate to implement an EoP intl law social contract], no  [Ego/Eco Illiterate] voter will vote for you. That’s what happened in Argentina, but much more intensely….. Of course, in my opinion, it’s politically unethical, but that’s the  [WiP election] reality.” – – [EoP Amended] Antonio Cafiero; Argentina’s Economic Collapse.

I very strongly personally regret that I was unable to persuade Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin; to sit down, get over their differences, and work together. I just could not pull that off. My biggest mistake was not recognizing by Saturday that Louisiana was dysfunctional – Michael Brown Former FEMA Director; Testimony before House Committee – 27 Sept 2005; Inside Hurricane Katrina

They tell you well I lived through Betsy or Camille…. With a police force of only 1,600, the mayor does not send his police officers out to enforce the mandatory evacuation. Its not just a question of manpower, there is also a traditional bias against forcing people out of their own home. Still officers do use their powers of persuasion: “I went as far as telling people [who refused to evacuate]. Just do me a favour. Make life easy on us, take a permanent marker, write your social security number along one arm and one leg, so when we find your body we can check your social security records and find out who you are. Then we don’t have to try and fingerprint a decomposed body.” – Lt Dwayne Scheuermann, New Orleans Police Swat Team’; National Geographic: Inside Hurricane Katrina.

“Citizens reflexively blame police for our [lack of Ego/Eco Literacy character] broken society. ..

Antonio Cafiero: WiP Political Treason due to Eco/Ego Illiteracy Voters

“Senor Cafiero, you are a historic leader of the Peronist party. How do you explain Carlos Menem’s treason? It happens frequently in the political life of every nation. There’s a small French book, “In Praise of Treason,” where they prove that treason is part and parcel of politics. To succeed, you have to lie. If you say what you think [that citizens/voters need to learn Ego/Eco Literacy and how to practice Responsible Freedom], no one will vote for you. That’s what happened in Argentina, but much more intensely…..

Policing Ferguson, Policing America: Ferguson police chief’s one regret in Michael Brown case.

No one was more responsible for that narrative, Jackson said, than then-Attorney General Eric Holder, who arrived in Ferguson just 11 days after the shooting — giving “tacit confirmation of the public fear that wrong had been done” and that prejudice was a factor. “He made the job of law enforcement even harder than it already was, putting the public and police both at greater risk,” Jackson wrote. Jackson would later resign following a scathing Department of Justice report that found a “revenue-driven” police department and court system that disproportionately hurt African-Americans and violated constitutional rights in Ferguson. But, in Jackson’s mind, “too many Americans are still deeply invested” in the “hands up, don’t shoot mythology,” which was ultimately not supported by eyewitnesses, according to the DOJ’s separate report on the shooting itself. One of the consequences of that disparity, Jackson claims, is to reflexively blame police for what he calls a “broken society,” especially as the national conversation about policing continues to evolve with every police-involved shooting. “It’s become our primary job to undo all the effects of all these years of supposedly corrupt and oppressive policing,” Jackson wrote. “The nation seems to have collectively decided that everything about policing is f–king up, and while no one’s quite sure how to do it, the police have been assigned with getting it un-f–ked.”

Shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson by Officer Darren Wilson.

The shooting of Michael Brown occurred on August 9, 2014, in Ferguson, Missouri, a northern suburb of St. Louis. Brown, an 18-year-old black man, was fatally shot by Darren Wilson, 28, a white Ferguson police officer, after Brown reportedly robbed a convenience store. An altercation ensued with Brown and Wilson struggling through the window of the police vehicle for control of Wilson’s gun until it was fired. Brown and Dorian Johnson then fled, with Wilson in pursuit of Brown. In the entire altercation, Wilson fired a total of twelve bullets; the last was probably the fatal shot.

The shooting sparked unrest in Ferguson. The “hands up” account was widely circulated within the black community immediately after the shooting and it contributed to the strong protests and outrage about the killing of the unarmed man. The U.S. Department of Justice concluded the “hands up” account was inaccurate months later. Believing accounts that Brown had his hands up in surrender when he was shot, protesters chanted, “Hands up, don’t shoot.” Protests, both peaceful and violent, along with vandalism and looting, continued for more than a week in Ferguson; police established a nightly curfew. The response of area police agencies in dealing with the protests was strongly criticized by the media and politicians. There were concerns over insensitivity, tactics, and a militarized response. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon ordered local police organizations to cede much of their authority to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

A grand jury was called and given extensive evidence from Robert McCulloch, the St. Louis County Prosecutor. On November 24, 2014, McCulloch announced the St. Louis County grand jury had decided not to indict Wilson. On March 4, 2015, the U.S. Department of Justice reported the conclusion of its own investigation and cleared Wilson of civil rights violations in the shooting. It found forensic evidence supported the officer’s account, that witnesses who corroborated the officer’s account were credible, and that witnesses who had incriminated him were not credible, with some admitting they had not directly seen the events. The U.S. Department of Justice concluded Wilson shot Brown in self-defense.

 US Military Climate Change Rising Seas.

Sea levels are rising as global warming heats up the planet. Many military bases along the US East Coast and Gulf of Mexico are at risk of permanently losing land to the ocean in the decades ahead. As the seas rise, high tides will reach farther inland. Tidal flooding will become more frequent and extensive. When hurricanes strike, deeper and more extensive storm surge flooding will occur. The US Armed Forces depend on safe and functional bases to protect the national security of our country. We must prepare for the growing exposure of our military bases to sea level rise. The military is at risk of losing land where vital infrastructure, training and testing grounds, and housing for thousands of its personnel currently exist. * By 2050, most of the installations in this analysis will see more than 10 times the number of floods they experience today. * By 2070, half of the sites could experience 520 or more flood events annually—the equivalent of more than one flood daily. * By 2100, eight bases are at risk of losing 25 percent to 50 percent or more of their land to rising seas. * Four installations—Naval Air Station Key West, Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Dam Neck Annex, and Parris Island—are at risk of losing between 75 and 95 percent of their land by the end of this century. * Flooding won’t be confined to the bases. Many surrounding communities will also face growing exposure to rising seas. – Union of Concerned Scientists: The US Military on the Front Lines of Rising Seas (2016).

“We don’t talk about climate change,” Capt. Dean VanderLey told visiting journalists in a tour of the base before the election. “We talk about sea-level rise. You can measure it.” … VanderLey would like to replace more of the piers. But the elephant in the room amid all the planning is cost and funding. Billions are required, and that kind of funding is hard to come by even when members of Congress are not arguing about whether climate change exists. “That’s the hard issue,” says retired Rear Admiral David Titley, who now heads the Center for Solutions to Weather and Climate Risk at the University of Pennsylvania. “How are we going to pay and which areas are we not going to protect? No politician wants to raise his or her hand and say, ‘you guys are out of the fence line.’ We saw this in New York with Mayor Bloomberg. ‘We don’t retreat.’ Well, guess what. The ocean gets a vote.” Retired Rear Admiral Jonathan White and former chairman of the Navy’s Task Force Climate Change says there’s no time to spare for convincing budget writers to act. By the time the seas have risen, the ice will have melted and there will be no turning back. “Timing is critical,” he says. “Just like timing for sorties out of Norfolk in advance of a hurricane is critical—if you wait too late, you can’t get the ships out because the seas are too high. The same kind of thing is going on with sea-level rise. You can’t wait for a certain yes, it’s going to be here or not. You’ve got to make decisions in advance, based on the uncertainty that you have.”
