♪FRIDAY JUKEBOX: These Dreams

“These Dreams”

Spare a little candle
Save some light for me
Figures up ahead
Movin’ in the trees
White skin in linen
Perfume on my wrist
And the full moon that hangs over
These dreams in the mist
(Ooo)

Darkness on the edge
Shadows where I stand
(Shadows where I stand)
I search for the time
On a watch with no hands
I want to see you clearly
Come closer than this
(All I remember)
But all I remember
Are the dreams in the mist

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it’s cold outside
Every moment I’m awake the further I’m away
(Further I’m away)

Is it cloak and dagger?
Could it be spring or fall?
I walk without a cut
Through a stained glass wall
(Weaker in my eyesight)

Weaker in my eyesight
The candle in my grip
(Words that have no form)
And words that have no form
Are fallin’ from my lips

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it’s cold outside
Every moment I’m awake the further I’m away
(Further I’m away)

There’s somethin’ out there
I can’t resist
I need to hide away, from the pain
There’s somethin’ out there
I can’t resist

The sweetest song is silence
That I’ve ever heard
(Never touch the earth)
Funny how your feet
In dreams never touch the earth

In a wood full of Princess
Freedom is a kiss
(Prince hides his face)
But the Prince hides his face
From dreams in the mist

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it’s cold outside
Every moment I’m awake the further I’m away

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it’s cold outside
Every moment I’m awake

The economic union signed this week between Russia and its near neighbors, Belarus and Kazakhstan, spells another nail in the coffin of the waning US global hegemony.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed off on the Eurasian Economic Union in the Kazakh capital, Astana, along with his counterparts, Alexander Lukashenko and Nursultan Nazarbayev.

There was evident, sincere camaraderie between the three leaders. Putin called the new union a “landmark of historic significance” while the Kazakh leader Nazarbayev declared “a new geopolitical reality of the 21st century is born.”

This is no exaggeration. The Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), which comes into effect in  January 2015, is another sign of the paradigm…

RT: China to ditch US consulting firms over suspected espionage

LOL, when will corrupt empires ever learn… the key to a kingdom everlasting lies with cooperation, kindness, and harmony with your neighbors. That’s the fact Jack!
“Beijing responded by calling the US a ‘robber playing cop’, and more recently said the US is a “mincing rascal” and involved in “high-level hooliganism”.
The US-China fallout came after revelations made by NSA contractor Edward Snowden that the US uses economic cyber espionage to spy on international competitors, including China.”

US consulting companies McKinsey, BCG, Bain & Company, and Strategy&, formerly Booz & Co., will all be snubbed by state-owned Chinese companies, the Financial Times reported, citing sources close to senior Chinese leaders.

“The top leadership has proposed setting up a team of Chinese domestic consultants who are particularly focused on information systems in order to seize back this power from the foreign companies,” a senior policy adviser to the Chinese leadership was quoted by the FT as saying.

“Right now the foreigners use their consulting companies to find out everything they want about our state companies,”the adviser said.

McKinsey is the largest global consulting group operating…

Edward Snowden ‘was trained as a spy,’ he tells NBC

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • NSA document leaker Edward Snowden says he was trained as a spy
  • He worked for the CIA, NSA and Defense Intelligence Agency, he tells NBC’s Brian Williams
  • Calling him a contractor is bid “to distract from the totality of my experience,” he says
  • Snowden is in Russia to avoid prosecution in U.S. on espionage charges

(CNN) — A low-level systems administrator? Or a highly trained spy?

Edward Snowden sought to bolster his credentials during an interview with NBC “Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams.

The one-hour interview, Snowden’s first with a U.S. television network, is scheduled to air at 10 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

An excerpt aired Tuesday night.

“I was trained as a spy in sort of the traditional sense of the word — in that I lived and worked undercover, overseas, pretending to work in a job that I’m not — and even being assigned a name that was not mine,” Snowden said.

“Now, the government might deny these things. They might frame it in certain ways, and say, oh, well, you know, he’s a low-level analyst.

“But what they’re trying to do is they’re trying to use one position that I’ve had in a career, here or there, to distract from the totality of my experience, which is that I’ve worked for the Central Intelligence Agency, undercover, overseas.

“I’ve worked for the National Security Agency, undercover, overseas. And I’ve worked for the Defense Intelligence Agency as a lecturer at the Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy, where I developed sources and methods for keeping our information and people secure in the most hostile and dangerous environments around the world.”

Snowden continued: “So when they say I’m a low-level systems administrator, that I don’t know what I’m talking about, I’d say it’s somewhat misleading.”

A spokeswoman for the NSA declined to comment Tuesday on the NBC report.

Williams traveled to Moscow, where Snowden fled to escape prosecution for leaking classified documents that detailed U.S. surveillance programs.

Snowden hasn’t been able to leave Russia since U.S. officials charged him with espionage and revoked his passport.

What he leaked sparked a national debate about privacy and security.

President Barack Obama and military officials remain in support of mass, warrantless surveillance. But civil libertarians, technology companies and others oppose it, noting the lack of transparency.
