The Great American Right to Complain

For 30+ years as a news hound and reporter of weird stuff, I, Xeno, have believed it is the duty of Americans to speak up truthfully about what they like and dislike. We have the right to complain, to make things better. This was true in the past. Is it still? I like peace, non-violence, transparency in government and privacy and fair voting for the public. I oppose violence and support peaceful plans. I try to read a broad spectrum of news and ideas, but don’t agree with everyone or everything I read or see. Reading is not approving, obviously. … Continue reading The Great American Right to Complain

Japanese Court: Father is “Sole Parent” to 13 Babies

Not many men have sole custody of 19 of their own children, 13 by foreign surrogate mothers. In the news is the case of a weathly Japanese man, Mitsutoki Shigeta, who was recently awarded sole custody of 13 children by surrogate Thai mothers. The ruling is not saying he is the only biological parent, rather that he is “the legal parent” of his own biological children, a quite logical ruling. In discussing this “baby factory” case, a confused international media seems unaware that there is no legal joint custody status in Japan. Officially, there is no such thing as joint … Continue reading Japanese Court: Father is “Sole Parent” to 13 Babies

Former NSA Senior Analyst Blasts Obama and Bush for Enabling Deep State Crisis

A good case could be made that we have a national political crisis today because people previously in power did not care about protecting the 4th Amendment Constitutional right of Americans to be free from unreasonable search and seizure. The US Constitution is a great blueprint. Let’s get back to having the freedoms as well as the checks and balances it intended. What’s going on now is not legal or right. 12/16/13  A federal judge ruled Monday that the National Security Agency program which collects information on nearly all telephone calls made to, from or within the United States is … Continue reading Former NSA Senior Analyst Blasts Obama and Bush for Enabling Deep State Crisis

20 million face famine. Declassified US plan to help 

While browsing the National Archives, I found a 10 step plan to prevent third world hunger emergencies in declassified US documents. The plan was dated July 9, 1984. More than 30 years later, most of the wealthy world watches while millions are about starve to death. What can we do? Here’s my rough paraphrase of what the plan said to do: 1) Preposition grain in selected third world areas for immediate distribution in a starvation situation. 2) Establish a $50 million presidential fund to permit timely response to food emergencies. 3) Spread out the cost of ocean freight for emergency … Continue reading 20 million face famine.

Police body cams will recognize all faces

Keep this in mind if you happen to like your supposed American freedoms: Without privacy you have no other rights.  Saying you don’t care about your right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is as clueless as saying you don’t care about freedom of speech because you have nothing to say. With a surveillance state (body cams, social media, cell phones, even toys) you don’t get protection. You get a thin illusion of security and then an above-the-law elite who can and will do anything they like, including falsify and tamper with evidence. It starts innocently. Most cops … Continue reading Police body cams will recognize all faces
