Pro-Wikileaks = Pro-death?

December 11th, 2010 by
BY JOSH BUNTING

I’m definitely pro-WikiLeaks, as anyone who’s read what I’ve written on the subject would definitely know. But like any other issue, it’s not entirely black and white. And since I already know I’m biased in one direction, I’m definitely at risk for ignoring information which doesn’t fit with said bias. So in order to try to correct that, here are some recent reports which might make one think twice before unconditionally supporting WL: Read More

The BEAST's Most Heinous Climate Villains, 2010

December 11th, 2010 by
BY MIKE RODDY & IAN MURPHY

(This article was published originally by Alternet.)

This was the hottest decade on record and 2010 has been the hottest year on record. Extreme weather and starvation are increasing on every continent, as beetles devour our forests and jellyfish begin to rule the sea. MIT and the Met Office Hadley Centre predict a business as usual 6 degree Celsius surface warming by 2100, and more than that over land. Climatologists call this being “screwed.” Response from the oil and coal people? Bend over. What follows is a list of people who just don’t get it, are handsomely rewarded not to get it, or both.

The Rent is Exceedingly Pricey

November 19th, 2010 by

JIMMY MCMILLAN on his 2012 Presidential Bid, Sarah Palin and the Tea Party, a possible cage death-match with Chuck Norris, space aliens in the VA, breakfast-lunch-and-dinner, drinking his own urine and something about the price of shelter in a BEASTCLUSIVE Interview.


McMillan:kjgkjg
McMillan: “So what’s wrong with drinking your own urine? You see, you were told it’s no good; you believe it’s no good. Don’t you believe that.”

B: If you had to choose, what’s the most important meal of the day: breakfast, lunch or dinner?

JM: Hahaha! Both—all three! But you need breakfast. Breakfast is key. That’s what I’m having right now. You may not eat dinner, but the breakfast is very important because your body shut down at night when you go to sleep. If you don’t sleep at night, whatever time you wake up will be breakfast. You need to put that in your body, so your body can function and all that. Read More

HOW I SPENT A YEAR IN IRAQ TEACHING WITH THE BUSH-CHENEY CRAZIES
BY JOHN DOLAN
(This piece was originally published at Alternet)


The hero of this story is the $100 bill — or rather, the wad of $100 bills. My first meeting with those lovely $100 bills came at the end of my interview for a job teaching English at the American University of Iraq Sulaimaniya (AUIS). At the end of the interview, the Chancellor, Joshua Mitchell asked me what my travel expenses had been and pulled out a wad of $100 bills. He peeled off 11 of them — the cost of my ticket — and slapped them down on the table, snarling, “There, that’s how I do business!” Read More

Economics for the Rest of Us: Debunking the Science that Makes Life Dismal by Moshe Adler
BEAST Book Review by Michael Caigoy


Noam Chomsky is the Mick Jagger of sad mouthed intellectuals. He’s been churning out crowd pleasers since the sixties. Big auditorium anthems about massacres in the Southern Cone, US-Israeli suppression of the Palestinians and CIA-backed coups the world over. Like Bowie and Bing Crosby, will any of us forget his stirring duet with Foucault? Or his flirtatious Sonny and Cher banter with William F. Buckley? As with Jimmy Page and P. Diddy, he’s even lent street cred to young punks like Alan Dershowitz.

What’s this have to do with anything, you ask? Shut up. Don’t get ahead of me. Read More

Or Richard Dawkins, Other Africans Reveal Radical, Atheist Afro-genda at Howard University

BY IAN “WHITE PRIVILEGE” MURPHY


THE NORTH AMERICAN WILDERNESS—Used to be a time when a white man could put a black lawn jockey or Carl Paladino sign out front of his summer home, and feel a sense of pride, because race-hate was moral in God’s book. And black folks appreciated the white man’s sins because the same book taught them that to suffer on the oppressor’s cross was divine. Those were the “good old days,” as candy bars only cost 5¢ and the gays knew their place.

But no more. There’s a black POTUS. Black atheists meet out in the open. Even my girlfriend is black! What has happened to my country? Read More

The BEAST Interrogates NY Green Party Gubernatorial Candidate Howie Hawkins

BY IAN MURPHY

howie

You don’t get a lot of press compared to Cuomo and Paladino. Why is that, and have you ever considered threatening a reporter or forwarding equine pornography emails to get more of the spotlight?

We don’t need stunts to get attention. Our Green New Deal speaks for itself: Read More

The Manhattan Madam’s pointless run for NY Governor

BY IAN MURPHY

DAVIS-HEADER
BUFFALO–So I’m on lunch the other day, covered in sawdust, specks of paint and your general blue-collar grime, when I notice what appeared to be a prostitute and her diminutive pimp posing for photos in Niagara Square. He’s pinstriped and wearing a fedora. The hooker’s a spray-tan…woman with collagen-duck-lips, long bleach-blond hair, caked-on-makeup, leg tattoos and enough silicon on the top floor to caulk an entire mansion. I’m just eating my shitty gas station sandwich on a bench, wondering what & why? Read More

Delusional bigot draws massive crowd of delusional bigots

AN EMBEDDED REPORT FROM GLENN BECK’S “RESTORING HONOR” RALLY BY TYLER BASS

bass=beck
AUGUST 28, 2010 — As America declines, so does its sanity.  The crazy has coalesced alongside the Tidal Basin and the Lincoln Memorial, DC. A delusional, racist demagogue has drawn about 200,ooo delusional, racist idiots, for a “Restoring Honor” rally. It’s a historic day in America. It’s an historic day in Britain. It’s the first time since Martin Luther King Jr. gave his inspiring “I have a dream” speech in ’63 — on this same day, in this same spot — that a white man has had the unashamed bigotry, cognitive dissonance and unchecked megalomania to squat over that inspiring dream and take a massive, steaming shit.

Those who camped out  for Glenn Beck’s  jingoist revival were not lucid dreamers. They are an uneducated and devastatingly stupid sect of the white majority, who fancy themselves existentially threatened by some swarthy other. To them, our president is counted among that melanin-rich horde of ill-defined evil. Squeezing my way through the lawn chair pews, I felt like I was inside the film Jesus Camp.

Going into this situation with a beard and long hair made things really interesting, but I wouldn’t try it again. One guy I met, Chris, who would stress to me the importance of removing the tax burden from the highest-income tax earners, and who called himself a Christian, told me that I was likely to get more interesting answers if I looked like some radical hippie freak. In hindsight, I agree. Read More
