Mike Bloomberg Ran Stasi-Style Police and Surveillance Operations Against Muslim Americans

Shamas compares the surveillance program to some of the activities of the East German Stasi secret police and says Bloomberg’s use of the program should be seen as an ominous sign of what he might do as president.

Giuliani Scrubs Facts To Defend His Risky Placement Of NYC’s Emergency Command Center

(29.01.2008)

On CNN’s American Morning today, host John Roberts asked former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani about recent revelations by the New York Times that said as mayor he ignored a “1998 police department memo” saying that it would be a bad idea to place the New York City emergency command center at Seven World Trade Center. The memo called the location — which collapsed on 9/11 — “a poor choice” with “significant points of vulnerability.”

Giuliani defended himself, saying he made the “choice,” but adding that “there were pros and cons for all of the sites”:

Each site had a series of pros, a series of cons. And the reality is, 7 World Trade Center was also the home of the CIA, the Secret Service, it was a logical place to put it for the transfer of information.

Eugène Delacroix – Romantischer Maler im Metropolitan Museum in New York

Er war zu allen Zeiten ein kompromissloser Kritiker von Pomp, Oberflächlichem und Anmaßungen, ob in der Politik oder im Kulturleben, und unermüdlich der Kunst verpflichtet. Obwohl er Romantiker war, verfolgte er ein Konzept künstlerischer Wahrheit, das in der Aufklärung wurzelte und einem philosophisch materialistischen gleich kam: „Im Grunde genommen ist Kunst nicht das, was man gemeinhin darin sieht, also eine vage Inspiration aus dem Nichts, die sich ziellos entfaltet und bloß das Pittoreske, Äußere der Dinge abbildet. [Kunst] ist reiner Verstand, verschönert durch das Genie, folgt aber einem klaren Konzept und ist an höhere Gesetze gebunden“. (Tagebuch, 7. April 1849)
