Every song on this album is awesome, one of the few albums I can listen to front to back without skipping a track:

My most recent favourite of theirs –>

Another super-intense 2l8 spoken word song, in Greek. Every single line in this song hides a story, K only told me one –>

A very very young K sounding a bit like Eddie Vedder 🙂 –>

Wikileaks volunteer and American fugitive currently in self-imposed exile in the Netherlands and Germany Jacob Appelbaum recently did a public lecture in which he claimed that he risks going to jail for a maximum of 45 years in his home country of America if he gets indicted with regards to the Grand Jury criminal investigation that was launched against him and others associated with Wikileaks for the purpose of investigating the nature and extent of their involvement with Wikileaks at the time of the Bradley Manning leaks in the winter of 2009-2010.

Source of the 45 years claim:

Start 4:06:

We see that targeted surveillance happens through mass-surveillance. So, there is this part of the discourse which I also wanna call out, which is… a lot of really respectable people talk about how mass surveillance bothers them but targeted surveillance doesn’t bother them at all, because everybody knows there’s, like, somebody who is a valid target.

But as a person who is being targeted in an espionage investigation in the United States and looking at 45 years in prison, I personally would like to say just because you might be a “valid target” doesn’t mean that we should end the discussion there.

Below is a list of the public tweets that Jacob Appelbaum tweeted while he was in Iceland in the winter of 2010. As you can plainly see any reference to Wikileaks or him being involved with Wikileaks or being around Wikileaks is absent from these public tweets.

Wikileaks number two man at the time Daniel Domscheit-Berg confirmed in his book Inside Wikileaks that Jacob Appelbaum was in Iceland in the winter of 2010 to work with Wikileaks. Other than this confirmation, the nature of the work that he performed with Wikileaks while in Iceland is unknown and Domscheit-Berg does not disclose any details in his book.

In 2011 a televison documentary was screened by the VPRO channel in their Tegenlicht program titled The Wikileaks Code. The events in Iceland in the winter of 2010 were discussed, but Jacob Appelbaum’s involvement was never brought up or addressed. This documentary (partially in English, Dutch subs) is available here:

In this documentary we learn the following:

“There was a conference on the 1st of December [2009] which was held by the Icelandic Digital Freedom Society and I asked if anyone from Wikileaks would be interested in coming to a conference in Iceland to give a speech. Julian only finally confirmed that he was coming a week beforehand.”

This statement suggests that Daniel Domscheit-Berg and Assange were in Iceland before Appelbaum showed up a month later.

BesidesAppelbaum’s tweets I am also including links to various timelines that have been posted online by the mainstream media detailing the dates Bradley Manning began communicating with Wikileaks, when he began leaking, when the investigation started, etc. The reader is encouraged to compare these timelines to the time frame that Jacob Appelbaum was posting the public tweets from Iceland, presumably between the 15th of January 2010 and around the 26th of January 2010 or the 3rd of February 2010. It is in this context that one should understand the Grand Jury criminal investigation into Jacob Appelbaum and the US Department of Justice’s attempts to uncover the nature and the extent of his involvement with Wikileaks in Iceland before, at or around the time of the Bradley Manning leaks.

I am beginning the list with some tweets from December of 2009 which show that Appelbaum was aware of Wikileaks’ existence in that month prior to his trip to Iceland a month later:

Below are links to some of the online timelines from the mainstream media:

Timeline published in The Guardian:

November 2009 [Manning] Makes contact with WikiLeaks for the first time after it leaked 570,000 pager messages from 9/11

An interactive timeline by Wired:

But if prosecutors could show that Assange directed Manning in leaking government documents that he then published, this could complicate Assange’s defense that WikiLeaks is simply a journalistic endeavor.

Johnson says he also examined an external hard drive found in Manning’s bunk room in Iraq that contained a text file called wl-press.txt that was created on Nov. 30, 2009, right around the time that Manning told Lamo that he first made contact with WikiLeaks.

The file included the line: “You can currently contact our investigations editor directly in Iceland at 354.862.3481 : 24 hour service : ask for Julian Assange.”

Manning allegedly downloaded the War Logs between December 31, 2009 and January 8, 2010, and leaked them on or before February 5 — at least 10 days before leaking Collateral Murder.

If the Army is right, though, Manning had already leaked at least one thing to WikiLeaks: an encrypted copy of a video named BE22 PAX.wmv, which is likely the classified video of the notorious Gharani massacre in Afghanistan.

In the first hint that it had an important new U.S. source, WikiLeaks tweeted about its possession of that video on January 8, 2010. But the organization has never released it, possibly because its failed to crack the encryption.

The highlights of the conversation — from a prosecutor’s perspective — have already aired in Manning’s court martial and earlier hearings: in particular, Assange’s offhand agreement to try and crack an Army desktop password for Manning was offered as evidence that WikiLeaks was more like an intelligence agency than a publisher. But the full transcript is fascinating in its own right for what it shows of the give-and-take between Assange and his key source at this historically important moment in the WikiLeaks story.

In a statement to reporters Monday, WikiLeaks says it plans to file a criminal complaint in Sweden Tuesday morning, ahead of President Barack Obama’s visit to the country. The complaint, published on, claims that a suitcase was seized containing three of Assange’s laptops, which he had checked during a September 2010 flight from Stockholm to Berlin. Those laptops’ encrypted hard drives, Assange says, included the Garani massacre video, as well as evidence of U.S. surveillance of Assange and a fellow activist in Germany and privileged communications between Assange and his lawyer.

The fascist censorship regime in the Netherlands is just getting worse and worse by the day. Just yesterday I read an article about a censorship incident that happened last summer but which somehow escaped me. A Dutch journalist by the name Olaf Koens who was apparently targeted by the Dutch police last summer with charges of public insult for simply posting the acronym A.C.A.B. on Twitter after he got frisked by zealous undercover cops at a rock music festival! This journalist is of course a Dutch citizen, he is not an American in Holland like “journalist” and University of Eindhoven PhD-student Jacob Appelbaum, who gets to shout “fuck the police” on Twitter with no consequences to himself, because Americans are apparently above the law in the Netherlands and get to freely violate Dutch speech laws that are tripple-enforced with everyone else.

Here is the segment from the article in the NCR Handelsblad about the incident with journalist Olaf Koens and the tweet with the ACAB acronym:

In hetzelfde weekend twitterde correspondent Olaf Koens dat hij tijdens zijn bezoek aan Lowlands gefouilleerd was door undercoveragenten. In een bericht erna schreef hij ‘ACAB’, een Engelse afkorting die vooral gebezigd wordt in subculturen waar ze het niet zo op de politie hebben. Hij staat voor ‘All Cops Are Bastards’, maar om onder rechtsvervolging uit te komen kun je gemakkelijk claimen dat het wat anders betekent. ‘Acht Cola, Acht Bier’ bijvoorbeeld, en dat was dan ook de reactie van de journalist toen hij online overstelpt werd door boze politiemensen. Zij riepen hun collega’s op massaal aangifte te doen van belediging. Ook zijn vaste opdrachtgever RTL Nieuws werd aangespoord afstand te nemen van Koens’ uitspraak.


That very same weekend journalist Olaf Koens tweeted that he was frisked at Lowlands [a big three day Dutch alternative music festival] by undercover agents. Following that message he wrote “ACAB”, an English acronym used by subcultures where people don’t really like cops. This acronym stands for “All Cops Are Bastards” but to avoid being persecuted one could easily claim that it means something else. For example “Eight Colas, Eights Beers” and that was also the response of the journalist when he was being overwhelmed online by responses from angry cops. They encouraged their colleagues in droves to file charges of criminal insult. Also the journalist’s client RTL News was urged to distance themselves from Koen’s statement.

The Dutch hysteria around public insult is of course a Foucauldian system designed and implemented to generate complaints from cops against citizens. These police officers need have to have something to do to justify their paycheck and they have decided that the easiest and most effortless way for them to do that is to enforce subjective and arbitrary speech laws. It doesn’t matter if the overwhelming majority of charges are eventualy dismissed for no reasonable cause. It’s all about psychologically coercing and intimidating citizens into committing acts of self-repression and self-censorship. Because these ridiculously repressive speech laws are enforced so arbitrarily and subjectively, no one really knows which utterance will get them detained, arrested, home-raided or berated, so they eventually fear political speech itself. The intent of this regime of repression and coercive censorship is cause exactly such a chilling effect.

There is a scene in the German film The Lives of Others about communist East Germany under the Soviet sphere of influence, where the Stasi officers joke about a screenwriter who was a Zersetzung target of the Stasi for writing subversive plays. He was so psychologically terrorized by the Stasi that he quit writing screenplays altogether. The Stasi officers joke that they only wanted him to quit writing subversive plays, but that he did them one better and quit writing at all. This Stasi model of psychologically coercing citizens into gagging themselves is the model that the Dutch police are implementing with regards to citizens lashing out against the police in the social media. It’s absolutely outrageous that the journalists of the NRC Handelsblad are encouraging the police to visit citizens and journalists at home, as long as they do so “in civilian clothes” so as to not appear as intimidating as in uniform <– this is the kind of absurdist Kafkaesque apologetics that only a Dutch journalist would have the nerve to print on paper. It goes without saying that a cop with a badge is still a cop with a badge regardless of the clothes he or she is wearing. Citizens are psychologically coerced and intimidated by cops showing up at their house and berating them over their comments in the social media regardless of the cop’s choice of clothes. In a real democracy with real freedom of speech no citizen should have to worry about cops showing up at his house and patronizing him for speaking his mind in the social media. The fact that this is happening in the Netherlands with mainstream journalists ideologically justifying this patronizing infantilization of citizens by authorities means that there is no real freedom of speech and no real democracy in the Netherlands. The communist Zersetzung of citizens by the Stasi was an act or repression and censorship, whether the Stasi agents would show up at people’s houses wearing their uniforms or not. This silly discussion about officers’ manner of dress is a perfect example of why I just can’t talk to Dutch people anymore: instead of discussing censorship and repression of citizens’ speech, the mainstream Dutch journalists are encouraging silly distractionary discussions about whether Dutch cops appear less intimidating without their uniforms or not.

To conclude, the Dutch police apparently doesn’t know that the acronym ACAB is also used in the radical feminist movement of which I am a feminist. In the feminist movement, the ACAB acronym actually means “All Cunts Are Beautiful” and is a slogan that is used by young radical feminists to promote acceptance of women’s natural bodies and to battle the culture of women shaming. So, as feminist I am right now going to post the ACAB acronym on my blog, using it as a feminist slogan as a feminist blogger:

I ended up checking out a hospice for the elderly, who were breathing out their last days on earth. I walked through its corridors, passing room after room, observing how these aged people suffered and sobbed, listening to endless moans of pain. Living in their horrifying realities, they didn’t seem at peace with imminent death. Being there in the moment, I questioned the purpose of living. Since then, the smell of old age has stayed with me. It haunts me every time I return from visiting my father in Jerusalem. I spent three days at the hospice, drowning in the residents’ suffering, listening to the few who were still able to speak in low, quivering voices, telling me about their pasts. I looked at their hands and fingers. Many suffered from diseases that had deformed their bones, paralyzing them into wheelchairs and onto deathbeds. Many were impaired from severe arthritis. Their fingers were dislocated, bent, as if broken. One elderly woman wore a wedding ring, buried in her swollen finger, cutting into her skin. The only way to remove it would have been through surgery. An elderly man had all his fingers on both hands dislocated into a permanent fist position. Many hands had scars, violet blood clots, as if tattooed on their skin.

I Found Pieces of Jennifer’s Body of Lies (poem)
by drs. Efthimia Dilpizoglou
(c) 2016 all rights reserved

The daughter of a Jewish Bolshevik communist
A prostitution and pornography apologist
Lying in the media about being a feminist
Here we go again with the same old shit
Another pretender from the Bronx
Who dyed her hair black and started sporting a fake name
I eat these liars like vegan cereals with coconut milk for breakfast
Because I refuse to go along with this silly game
Such Lauries and Jennies are a penny a dozen
You your auntie your sister and your cousin
Don’t get impressed by the journalistic credentials that I got
I’m still I’m still Jennie from the block
She says women are punished for wanting muchness
When women are punished for wanting anything at all
American woman you stand so tall
And you have the gall
To think yourself a badass
Having been to every American blacksite and Alcatraz
Tell us again, how did you even gain access?
When muchness is what used to be called greed
An American creed
Going well beyond need
No woman has ever been freed
When an American took the lead
I got my tentacles all over your fucking backstory
You know I do
And I know it’s something that really makes you worry
Gloria In Excelsis Diss Your Dea
I know something that could destroy-ya
You came to my home-country Greece
And drew my country ugly just like you drew
Those ugly American hookers
You used to draw at mister sharpies
That’s right harpy
You think I forgot?
How are you telling the media
You wasn’t making money
Eating hard boiled eggs
When I know you made a lot
And it wasn’t at any cardboard box
Drawing American hookers
Sucking bankster cocks
You you the tourist gazer
You the objectifier
You the money-maker
And arts franchinser
Charging other artists to draw strippers
Not consensual dolphin fucking with Flipper
You the feminization of the Male Gaze
Drawing no blood other than
What little drips out of you every 28 days
So you made a book about Greek austerity
Hip hop hurrah
Made a shitload of money
Never sent none this way
“I love muslim culture”
“I’m treated like a third gender”
Says the American gazer
When she wouldn’t last a day
In Syria or anywhere else
Islamists get to have their way
I recall an image of a young girl
Licking an ice-cream cone in the shape of a dick
Pedophilia-apologetics always gets you awarded by the system
And how wonderful you’re now learning Arabic
Now you’ll really pass
The CIA test because establishment artists
Are never suspected of working for the man
And get to tresspass
Into what was and will never be again
Splitting glass
Cracking open walls
And breaking through cement
I swear no American artist in the middle-east
Was ever there on behalf of their government
Always with the best of intentions
Art in the hands of Americans
Is just another form of spying and data retention
In countries where everything is banned from being said or drawn
An American drawing a pen
A Conquistadora drawing her sword
Every history you are hiding
And lying to hide and be able to lie about
A noose around your neck
With me holding the cord
Every woman is on a leash
No woman is ever free
Certainly not a fucking American liar like you
Drawing up a fake version of history
For the world to see
So they won’t listen to me
I found pieces of Jennifer’s body of lies
Serving Americanized versions of geopolitics and history
You know this hardluck story enough to believe it
Press the button drop another bomb again and hit it


… as if communism would’ve treated the trans group any different from the way communism treated homos and women!

In the previous two blog articles this week, I showed by means of actual mainstream documentaries what communism really did to women and homosexuals. Coincidentally I recently discovered the following Youtube channel, representative of yet another group of people in America that is mindlessly getting into communism:

The videos in this “detransition” channel, run by a certain “Nadia Yvette Chambers” (? real name?), have mock-provocative/ironic titles such as “Atheist Anarchist Communism and Vegan Transgender Feminism” (!) or “Quantifying the Atheist Anarcho-Communist Transsexual Feminist Vegan Self” (!!) or “The Gawdless Anarcho-Communist Transsexual Feminist Agenda” (!!!). These videos come in series of dozens and dozens videos that are each about 7-8 hours long on average. Nevertheless this channel has over a 1000 viewers with each video having hundreds of views, so someone out there is actually watching this! Who is watching all this? Surely not the maker himself who should’ve taken the time to edit his videos out of courtesy to his viewers and seems to make an effort out of broadcasting his every waking moment on Youtube. The owner of the channel describes his mission as “I Bring Soviet Sexual Chaos to America” (a 72 part series of 7-8 hour videos) and promises “A Soviet Vagina for Every Transsexual Woman Contrary to Christ”. A dedicated commie pinko if there ever was one :\ This channel by Nadia takes the American communist fannishness to a whole new level of ridiculous devotion, which Nadia can always distance himself from by claiming he is merely being ironic or provocative.  Transsexuals apparently are another social group in the United States of America who, witnessing American society collapse all around them, imagine the Soviet Union being some kind of a gay paradise, when, if actual communist history is anything to go by, most of these lovestruck ignoramuses would’ve ended up a communist conversion camp. I have even come across American homos in the social media celebrating the fact that Maoist party luminaries were exposed to be closet gays, ignoring the fact that Maoist communism actually repressed homos, as one can plainly read on Wikipedia:

While many dissidents would be imprisoned, it is unclear if LGBT people were specifically targeted for oppression due to their sexual identity. Reportedly, Mao Zedong believed in the sexual castration of “sexual deviants” (Randy Shilts. “Conduct Unbecoming”) but little is known about the Communist Chinese governments official policy with regards to homosexuality prior to the 1980s.

Even as late as the early 1980s, there were some Chinese men seeking asylum in other countries reported that they had faced systematic discrimination and harassment from the government because of their sexual orientation as well as similar mistreatment from family members. Likewise, the Chinese government did treat homosexuality as a disease and subjected gay men to electric shock therapy and other attempts to change their sexual orientation

The usual excuse offered in the social media for this American love-affair with communism is that the European hang-up on communism is just a European thing that American homos need not be concerned with because communism was never a ruling ideology in America… which is like saying fascism would be a good idea in the US because there never was an American Hitler (was there? 😉 ) and the European hang-up with Nazis is just a European frustration that should have no bearing on Americans. It’s like Americans will bend themselves out of shape to make up excuses allowing them to salvage what they think is American communism while disavowing any association with its working ruling manifestation at the other side of the globe, which was DICKtatorial Stalinism, Maoism and the killing fields of Southern Asia.

The following is an excerpt from the documentary S21, The Khmer Rouge Killing Machine which was screened at the 2004 edition of the IDFA. Communism is in line with vegan animal rights ideology because the animal rights field does not recognize the concept of human rights or the idea that there is a difference between human beings and animals, or the idea that human life is important and should be protected, therefore, it is acceptable under communism to treat a human being worse than an animal, which is exactly what the Khmer Rouge killing machine did. –>

Anyway, I am going to post the link again to the documentary Children of the Decree and the excerpt about communist conversion therapy and prison camps from the documentary Improper Conduct in the hopes that Nadia and his followers will watch these documentaries and wisen up about communism. Communism was no friend of women and homos, or anyone other than the Party Elite for that matter, and if trans had been around during communism they wouldn’t have been treated any different from women and homos and any other person who wasn’t part of the Party Elite. Again, I can totally understand Americans wanting to criticize or even reject their capitalist system, but this a-historical love-affair with communism is not the way to do it.


Not only are American feminists mindlessly praising communism in the social media lately, another group that has no idea about communism and has been ignorantly posting in favour of communism is American homos. For this group I am going to post the following excerpt from a documentary about Cuban exiles, where a Cuban poet explains how homosexuals were treated under communism in Fidel Castro’s Cuba: they were locked up in prison camps and forced to undergo conversion therapy. Every homo who is under the mistaken impression that communism was some kind of gay paradise needs to see this and get educated on the history of homos under communism. And no, this is not “just a European thing”, as American communism-loving homos always like to dismiss European concerns, because the person who asked the Bulgarian communists to teach him how to best rid society of homosexuals was Raul Castro, Fidel’s brother, so this is very much about the American side of communism as well: –>

Because I am sick and tired of watching people promote communism in the social media engaging in hair-splitting discussions about whether Bolsheviks were different from Stalinists, whether things were bad under Lenin before they went to shit under Stalin, blah de blah, posting about fucking Party luminaries when they can’t even name one woman who ended up the gulags… communism, fascism, capitalism, anarchism, ALL KAKISTOCRACIES AND DEATH FACTORIES, WITH CONCENTRATION CAMPS, TECHNOCRACIES, BUREAUCRACIES, KANGAROO COURTS, CENSORSHIP, BRAINWASHING, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, SECRET POLICE AND A MASSIVE DOMESTIC SERVANT-CLASS OF WOMEN! As I said in my previous blog entry, I am particularly perplexed by American lesbians praising communism. This documentary, which I posted earlier this week, shows how women including lesbians were treated under communism: as State-owned State-regulated breeding machines. –>


I am sick and tired of feminists and lesbians praising communism in the social media. I get these messages and memes in my timeline all the time and I am just sick and tired of them. No feminist aware of the history of women under communism should be praising communism. I don’t give a fuck about Communist Party Celebrities like Rosa Luxemborg when the same women who name-drop her and other approved-of female Party Celebrities as anecdotal evidence of how women-friendly communism supposedly was can’t name even a single gulag victim, much less a female one. I am going to post here the link to the documentary _Children of the Decree_ about women under communist rule. This documentary was screened at the 2004 edition of the IDFA and has since been made available for free viewing on Youtube by the maker Florin Iepan. This documentary shows how women were really treated under communism and why no self-respecting feminist should be praising or making excuses for communism! I understand feminist women wanting to critique or oppose capitalism as an inherently sexist system that requires a servant class of women working double shifts to function and cleaning up after the social ills caused by capitalism, but latching onto the authoritarian DICKtatorial system that is communism is not the way to do it. Communism is not a friend of women, and American feminists and lesbians in particular, who have never directly experienced and are hence completely oblivious to how communism actually functioned with regards to women, need to cut the crap and stop this silly love-affair with communism! –>


What is the face of institutionalized white supremacy and white male privilege? Here you have a social media message by a Dutch white guy bragging about entering the cockpit of plane in complicity with the captain (most likely himself a white Dutch dudebro) and snapping pictures in mid-flight, which is a total violation of post 9/11 flight security protocols dictating that no passenger should be allowed into the cockpit, not when the plane is grounded and certainly not when the plane is in mid-flight or during descent to look at the pretty lights below. If one of us semitic-looking people were on that flight we’d be arrested and held in indefinite detention for merely staring at the cockpit door for a little too long. But hey, don’t worry, most likely the Openbaar Ministerie won’t even bother investigating  this incident involving white Dutch males potentially jeopardizing everyone on the plane and wiping their skinny white Dutch asses with flight security protocols, because the public prosecutors are too busy keeping you safe by jailing rappers and bloggers! Cos we all know white guys never go nuts and take down a plane, right?


And look at the number of likes this message got: 600+ likes! Would a semitic-looking guy ever get 600+ likes after admitting he got into a cockpit in complicity with the captain of the plane and in violation of flight security protocol? Of course not. The comment section would be on fire with everyone demanding his arrest, while demanding that the captain be fired, have his certificate revoked and never allowed to fly a plane again. Not when it’s white Dutch males doing it! White Dutch males get a pat on the back for violating security protocol and showing off how they’re able to get away with everything. They’ve even got the pictures to prove it!

And I love that humble-bragging line, “the best things in life are received, not taken”. This is the language of internalized and naturalized white male privilege. If me or my semitic-looking friends as much as asked to go into the cockpit while the plane was grounded just to snap a shot, let alone *in fucking mid-flight and even during descent*, the only “things” we would “receive” is indefinite detention with no access to a lawyer. So fuck institutionalized white supremacy and fuck white Dutch guys humble-bragging on Facebook about violating flight security protocols that are tripple-enforced when someone is coloured or semitic-looking.
