Evergreene Digest Will No Longer Cover Mass Shootings in the US

A Notice to our readers

October 4, 2017 | Evergreene Digest will no longer cover mass shootings in the US. That means we will no longer provide accounts, descriptions, visuals, comments, discussions, analysis, and suggestions for action from the most recent incident in Las Vegas, NV, and after.

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/PineTreeLogo200%20with%2011%20Yr%20Banner.jpgThe reason for this is simple and clear: there is nothing on which to report. This situation has become normalized, a dog bites man story. Mass shootings occur in the US virtually on a daily basis. Coverage is predictable: a fill-in-the blank script. Only the names, location, numbers killed and wounded, and dates change. Arguments for and against remain unchanged. Hypocritical and cynical requests for thoughts and prayers are inevitable. Crocodile tears and self-righteous outrage always emerge. The end result is always the same: an unbridled, unhinged rush to the next incident, inevitably more bloody than its predecessors.There is no hope whatever for a resolution to the carnage,

If you've read one story about mass shootings, you have read them all. To see what I mean search for "Mass shootings" in the search box.

As Editor and Publisher, I have decided that Evergreene Digest will no longer participate in covering this story until something in it changes, until a man bites a dog. We will no longer pander to our readers, lending dignity and credibility to the current situation, a  three-ring circus at best and a slaughter of innocents at worse. Meanwhile we will continue to use our resources to cover stories that matter and issues that have hope of resolution.

The crew and I  thank you for your support.

07/17/17 | To hear some tell it — Mark Zuckerberg, John Oliver, Sen. Al Franken — you might believe the internet as we know it is on the brink of total collapse.

An impending rule change from Donald Trump’s administration could give big telecommunications companies the green light to change the way the internet operates by allowing them to enact their boldest ideas to wring as much money as they can out of the web, at the expense of the consumers and companies that depend on it.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has unveiled his plan to dismantle Net Neutrality.

August 19, 2017 | While the media focused closely on the spectacle of white polos and khaki pants worn by the killer, most sources missed a long backstory of far-right political violence.

White supremacists’ coup on the culture may have hit its zenith with the August 12 “Unite the Right” rally—a convergence of far-right groups that ended with racist attacks, dozens of injuries and three dead. In the firestorm of controversy that followed the fascist onslaught in Charlottesville and Trump’s open support for keeping the Confederate monuments in place, a number of important issues have gone under-reported across mainstream news outlets.

Shane Burley is a writer and filmmaker based in Portland, Oregon. His work as appeared in places such as In These Times, Truth-Out, Labor Notes, ThinkProgress, Roar Mag, and Upping the Anti. He is the author of forthcoming book Fascism Today: What It Is and How We End It (AK Press, 2017).

Alexander Reid Ross is a lecturer in geography at Portland State University and the author of Against the Fascist Creep (AK Press, 2017). His articles have been published in ROAR Magazine, Waging Nonviolence, Think Progress, and Truthout.

Part 1: NPR Attempts To Undermine WikiLeaks’ Credibility With Deliberate, Brazen Lie

These deep state propaganda networks have got to go. America’s entire oppressive system is held together by mass media psy-ops and establishment propaganda narratives; if we can sufficiently disrupt public trust in these heinous institutions there may yet be the possibility of democracy and freedom in America someday. 

Caitlin Johnstone, Medium

May 17, 2017 | As if we needed another reason to want the legacy media to die screaming all alone in an ill-reputed nursing home, National Public Radio has just added one more to the planet-sized pile. NPR, which just Wednesday released an anti-WikiLeaks attack editorial disguised as a movie review, has made a deliberate attempt to tarnish WikiLeaks’ 100% perfect record of authentic and accurately-vetted releases by going out of its way to report that the publishing organization had posted nine gigabytes of partially inauthentic documents.

Don’t let anyone tell you that this cannot be done. I don’t respect pessimism here anymore; there’s no valid reason to be pessimistic in a completely unprecedented situation. 

Caitlin JohnstoneMedium

May 4, 2017 | I am going to keep hammering and hammering on this point until I see that it has taken root in American consciousness: the single best way to take down the oligarchy is by aggressively and relentlessly attacking its propaganda engine. People appreciate my cutesy little analysis pieces on current events and my rude nicknames for corporate Democrats, but if there was one idea I could implore you all to ingest and circulate, this would be it.

http://riseuptimes.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/images.jpg?w=225 It is clearer now than ever before that democracy is functionally nonexistent in America. In an unapologetically strict two-party system, the DNC is openly communicating to the public that it considers itself a private establishment under no obligation to provide the public with a legitimate Democratic primary. On the other side of the aisle the purported nationalist who the people supposedly elected has been acting more and more like the neocon globalists that his grassroots supporters despise. No matter how you vote, the plutocrats and their multinational corporations and banks win, and the American people lose. This is settled beyond dispute for anyone who’s been paying attention. We tried all the political doors, and they’re all bolted shut.

Here's the gist; riddle me this: 

How is a Train like the Internet?

They're both common carriers!  

You buy your ticket and decide where you want to go on the train.

You buy your Internet service provider and decide where you want to go on the Internet. 

But that could end in August.

Big Telecoms like Verizon, Comcast and AT&T don't want to just provide Internet service, they want to control the content too - slowing down, diverting or even shutting down our access to the open internet we know and love. 

Imagine being on a train and all of a sudden, you can't get off at your stop - or it takes you twice as long to get there, and costs twice as much. 

That's why we're asking all of you internet users out there to come together on July 12th to spread the word at your local train or metro stations about the importance of an open and accessible internet - just like an open and accessible public transportation system. 

These actions will coincide with an Internet-Wide Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality. 

We need our voices to be heard online and off. 

  http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Fight%20Back.jpgSo sign up here and via the button below to spread the word at your local train station. We'll send you fliers that show the graphic above and information on Net Neutrality and how to get involved in the fight to Save the Internet!

We must rise together quickly again to defend the Internet!

Solidarity,

Popular Resistance

Popular Resistance seeks to aid in bringing movements for peace, justice, economic fairness and environmental protection together into an independent, nonviolent and diverse movement that can end the power of concentrated wealth, shift power to the people and put human needs before corporate greed.

The newsman’s two-minute broadcast centered entirely on the president’s awkward performance at the international conference and what it meant for the United States as a world power. To Uhlmann, it means nothing good. And the clip, which the Australian outlet tweetedhas resonated soundly with a lot of people.

We must disrupt the "common sense" that is produced in mainstream cultural apparatuses and that serves as glue for the rise of right-wing populism. This is not merely a call for a third political party. Any vision for this movement must reject the false notion that capitalism and democracy are synonymous. Democratic socialism is once again moving a generation of young people. We need to accelerate this movement for a radical democracy before it is too late.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/under-newspaper.jpg June 30, 2017 | The internet was in an uproar Thursday as people took to decrying President Donald Trump for his childish and cruel remarks about the late globalist billionaire, Zbigniew Brzezinski’s daughter, Mika.

While the mainstream media drug Trump through the mud, ad nauseam, for his uncouth and immature comments, their silence — on issues that actually matter — was deafening.

In a most profound tweet on Thursday, Julian Assange weighed in on the issue, making an immensely powerful statement and calling out the ridiculous nature of corporate media and their ability to distract from the crimes of the establishment.
