Let's start making everything perfectly clear....
The goal of this coalition is to build a base of antiwar voters that cannot be ignored by anyone running for office in the United States. We want millions of voters to sign the pledge and say no to pro-war candidates.
Political surrealism to the next level.

Now, the 21st century "murikan", between working for both massa corporation and massa state, and anesthetizing his seared body and soul with mind numbing alcohol and TV. Any people who've endured the losses we have, yet still seem eager to put their Nation down even further just to keep the good times going-such a craven, "lazy", cowardly people probably deserve all the crap that you and your compatriots in federal service have planned. Don't they?

Press Officer Turns Down FBI Offer to Speak at HQ in Quantico
Canoga Park, CA: Two weeks ago one of the North American Animal Liberation Press
Officers received an unsolicited offer by email from FBI Headquarters in Quantico,
Virginia to speak to a classroom full of "police executives".
As long as non-human animals continue to be oppressed, imprisoned, tortured and
murdered by humans for their personal pleasure and profit, the Press Office will
continue to support those brave warriors who risk their lives and freedom to fight
for animal liberation. And we certainly have no plans to educate state police
agencies on how to catch them.

Mexico's Presidential Election Outcome in Dispute as Leftist Party Cries 'Foul'~ Interview with Michael Lettieri, Council of Hemispheric Affairs research fellow, conducted by Scott Harris
I'm beginning to craft a campaign to lower the voting age in Portland or Multnomah County. Thoughts?
Take advantage of whatever 'wakes people up to the truth' that 9/11 was an INSIDE-JOB and that global warming is REAL. The time to awaken is NOW. People united in 'One Voice' have the power to change the World. United we have the power to create a paradigm-shift in consciousness. The choice is ours- we have FREEWILL. It all starts within your mind...so open it. "REVOLUTION" is only a 'thought' away.

A letter regarding Ward Churchill to Kevin Barrett. Kevin Barrett is a University professor in Wisconsin whose position on 9/11 has come to the attention of Representative Robert Nass and Wisconsin Govenor Doyle. Like Ward Churchill his job is in jeopardy because as a result of his political views.
The Ancient Redwoods are older by centuries than the American Republic itself. They are found only in the northwest coastal region of the nation. They have witnessed this country's birth struggle, its awful Civil War, its rapacious expansion westward, and now, finally, its imperial hubris and rapid decline. By the time the Bush-Cheney Gang gets done ripping the country off (aided by complicit Democrats), the Republic will be a fading memory.
Little Man With a Gun in His Hand:
An Open Letter to Sheriff Jack Strain, of St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana
By Tim Wise
July 4, 2006
The memory of the torture and murder of this young man by the dark forces that we are paying to serve and to protect us is rapidly fading into the dim public consciousness. Do we really forget so quickly? Saturday will mark the tenth month since Fouad Kaady's death.

The huge omnivorous herd consumes everywhere on our earth as much as it can grab, and tramples millions of human beings to death. That doesn't seem to matter. The 'elephant boys' don't speak about the bloody pulp underneath the feet of the big animals: instead they give'm a bath in the mainstream.

I have consoladeted and updated my origional comment written in 1/06
My ordeal with Schoning began in August of 2004. I almost lost my home to foreclosure because Schoning defaulted on HIS loan. A simple call to ask me to pay this mortgage directly would have avoided the foreclosure. This whole issue could have been settled in a few days without attorneys has now dragged on for almost two years and cost 1,000's of dollars. I await the decision of the mediation, but even if I prevail, I am almost certain that Schoning will avoid paying what he owes, forever if possible.
The following letter was sent from Palestine. Please forward widely.
I encourage everyone in America to move away from the comfortable complacency that allows BushCo to kill people with impunity. If we don't stand up and speak out against their offenses and for accountabitlity the crimes will continue even into the next administration, whichever party is in power.
Concerning National Popular Elections
Among the many shouts of warning from environmentalists regarding global catastrophes, 'Peak Oil' stands out as the newest and most imminent. The issue has gained special acceptance from different sections of the left, who have chosen it as their primary concern - aside from of course, defeating Bush. Peak Oil and other environmental issues, such as global warming, have created important political questions that need to be addressed; the following is an attempt to analyze the different political considerations that arise when one discusses the topic of Peak Oil.
Now, several days into Israel's continued bombing and shelling of Gaza, American TV networks and major newspapers are still too COWED by the "Israeli Lobby" to CRITICIZE ISRAEL or honestly label the attacks as "STATE TERRORISM!" - In Contrast, ISRAELI Media and Writers ARE criticizing the attacks!
Apparently, only Israel's Haaretz newspaper, several Jewish writers, British newspapers and the Swiss have the guts to criticize Israel's STATE TERRORISM attack on Gaza as unjustified, illegal and in defiance of the Geneva Conventions!

Hey conservatives who are so stoked that Bush is "keeping us safe," looks like the Hunt for Osama Bin Laden isn't such a big deal after all. The CIA is closing down the special unit that originated in the Clinton Administration (because he was "soft on terror"), then received copious slabs of pork from Bush to make it look like bin Laden was responsible for 9-11, only to be ignored when it produced evidence that bin Laden was cornered in Tora Bora, so he could get away.

I found a decent article about what the 4th of July means to blacks here and thought that would be a good jumping point title for this once a year reminder about youth.
This posting aims to explain how I evolved from social liberal centrism to extra-leftist anarchism in context of the historical juncture that ''ended'' the '20th century' and initiated 'the 21st'. It is a sort of political autobiography relative to my activist experiences and reaction to global events the 1998 to 2003 period... some have called this period of tecno-euphoria the ''early-(post-)postmodern'' ...
It's not uncommon to hear a left-leaning person denounce the Bush administration with a barrage of Nazi-related epithets. The slurs are typically blurted out in anger with little thought to evidence or validity. In fact, whenever analogies are made linking a person or current event to either the Nazis or Holocaust, accusatory responses of "exaggeration" and "slander" are usually justified; it is indeed immature to randomly compare anything to the machine of Nazism that took the innocent lives of so many. While taking this into full consideration, the following is nevertheless an attempt to make some unpleasant connections.
Contrary to what many historians claim, Fascism does not appear out of thin air. There are economic and social conditions that— appearing repeatedly throughout history— have led to the possibility of tyranny and atrocity. The fascist nations of Italy, Germany, Japan, and Spain are often explained simply as phenomenon of irrationality: charismatic leaders hypnotized the masses into behaving like zombies while willfully contributing to the most horrific crimes. This myth conveniently dilutes the past behind a veil of banalities, leaving the slightest comprehension of a crucial era of history impossible. It is hoped that in explaining the historic and ideological origins of fascism, and showing where they are relevant to the present day, a better understanding of social processes can be gained, and in consequence, a means to combat the current degeneration of the United States. There can be little doubt that such an understanding is essential in determining if a public is well informed and involved in shaping its future, or otherwise reduced to the mentality that was once shared by all 'good Germans'.
Global warming scares some of us into affirmative action, but not all. Why?
The media has missed this point, and the Justices kind of glided over the significance of what they were saying. So now the question is: What are we the people going to do about it?

In "Apocalypse of Coercion" (Global Outlook #11, June 2006), I used Douglas Rushkoff's landmark book Coercion as a touchstone for understanding 9/11 as a psychological warfare operation. Rushkoff's well-researched insights into the mind-control techniques of car salesmen, spin doctors, cult leaders, and CIA psych-war specialists explain how 9/11 was designed as a war-triggering "New Pearl Harbor." In the follow-up article "Deprogramming the Bush Cult" I use Marc Galanter's analysis of how cults control their followers to argue that the 9/11 psy-op created a "Bush Cult" of war fever, pseudo-patriotism, and unquestioning compliance with increasingly insane leadership.
My conclusion is that if we are to avoid a national Jonestown, we must understand and expose the way anxiety-induction followed by anxiety-reduction has been used to establish cult-like control of the American people during the 9/11-initiated "war on terror."
The president has made a joke out of congress by his unbridled use of "signing statements" to invalidate laws. If Congress won't stand up to this usurpation, it is signing its own, and the Constitution's, death warrant.
Have the War Mongers Competely Taken over Congress? Has the US Senate just become an echo chamber for the power hungry, blood thristy White House?
Is war against Iran a foregone conclusion? My U.S. Senator thinks so.
George W. Bush has created a culture of fear in this country through his incessant reminders of 9/11, desperate promotion of the War on Terror, and his role as the War President, here to keep us safe from those Muslims, "that hate our freedoms". It is fascinating to me that in adopting that paternal mantle, complete with his idiotic "bring it on," and "want Justice, dead or alive," slogans, and the equally foolish, though less dangerous, physical swagger with the arms held as though at the ready for a gunfight, Bush has managed to encourage a "Bully Culture".
