Here are links to a few interesting articles I came across recently. They are about average people (in the USA and other countries) getting screwed by duplicitous “leaders” and “experts” aka social scam artists.
Link 1: Watch Carrier Workers Find Out Their Jobs Are Moving to Mexico
Workers at a Carrier Air Conditioner plant in Indianapolis were summoned to a group assembly this week to be told their jobs would soon be moving to Monterrey, Mexico. In all, 1,400 jobs are expected to be lost. The moment was caught on video. “I want to be clear, this is strictly a business decision,” says the speaker, Carrier General Manager Chris Nelson, as the crowd erupts in anger. “This was an extremely difficult decision … It was most difficult because as I understand it will have an impact on all of you, your families, and the community.” Carrier is owned by United Technologies.
Link 2: Lawyers speak out about massive hack of prisoners phone records
Last fall, Bukowsky received an unexpected phone call related to McKim’s case. The call came from The Intercept, following our November 11, 2015, report on a massive hack of Securus Technologies, a Texas-based prison telecommunications company that does business with the Missouri Department of Corrections. As we reported at the time, The Intercept received a massive database of more than 70 million call records belonging to Securus and coming from prison facilities that used the company’s so-called Secure Call Platform. Leaked via SecureDrop by a hacker who was concerned that Securus might be violating prisoners’ rights, the call records span a 2 1/2-year period beginning in late 2011 (the year Securus won its contract with the Missouri DOC) and ending in the spring of 2014.
Link 3: Henry Kissinger’s War Crimes Are Central to the Divide Between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders
Some may only dimly recall that Kissinger won a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to end the Vietnam War (comedian Tom Lehrer famously said the award made political satire obsolete) and that he played a central role in President Nixon’s opening of relations with China. But Kissinger is reviled by many left-leaning observers of foreign policy. They consider him an amoral egotist who enabled dictators, extended the Vietnam War, laid the path to the Khmer Rouge killing fields, stage-managed a genocide in East Timor, overthrew the democratically-elected left-wing government in Chile, and encouraged Nixon to wiretap his political adversaries.
