Join the Honduras Solidarity Committee this Sunday October 18, 4pm at Liberty Hall as we unveil our campaign to educate and mobilize our community to take action is support of the restoration of democracy in Honduras. Given the recent failed negotiations between representatives of Zelaya and the Michiletti government, and with "elections" slated for the end of November, it's important too take action now!
Why was the "psychology" of this movie not more considered in reviews? Yes one can quickly retort that it was "just" a movie, and besides artists have poetic license to be free with their work? Well maybe so, but Mr. Quentin Tarantino addresses a serious subject at a curiously serious time, and therefore he invites serious criticism that he and his critics should get—not a Hollywood club giving wide birth if it was meant to promote more guilt or whatever the U.S. film/ review industry silently accedes as OK—that is a film industry that has become part and parcel of a world not unlike that of Joseph Goebbels.
Three weeks ago, Iran revealed that it had a uranium-enrichment facility near the holy city of Qum. The U.S. began working with its allies, mainly France and Great Britain for a fresh round of sanctions against Tehran. This article addresses the effect of sanctions on Iran
Violation of Law Seen in GOP Legislators' Support of Honduran Coup
Interview with Brendan Cooney, writer and anthropologist, conducted by Scott Harris
A lot is happening in the tumultuous realm of global economics. The "Great Recession" has caused tectonic shifts internationally, with outcomes that will dramatically change the lives of millions of people in the U.S. and beyond. And while Obama is acknowledging this fact with repeated references to "a new world order," he isn't explaining how this adversely affects working-class Americans.
Canada has higher standards than the United States, so stay out!
The 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, BC will be the largest security operation in Canadian history. They promise to be a hellhole of police state measures with far-reaching effects that could remain in place long after the Games are finished. Military planners will undoubtedly use it as a template for securing future high profile events. In June of the same year, Canada will host the G8 as well as the G20 Summits.
By giving democratic forces in Rwandan an internationally recognizable banner to rally round, the international Greens have helped Rwandan Greens kick a hole in the huge and hugely evil IMF/World Bank/U.S.-U.K. State Department/Rev. Rick Warren lie about Paul Kagame's Rwanda, and, about the covert U.S. War in Central Africa---the most lethal, but least understood, conflict in the world.
FUCK this kkkolumbus day noise.
The Twitter incident makes me so proud of PDX IMC's hardcore anti-corporate stance. Now that Twitter came back to bite us, the circumstances around Twittergate need to be understood, lest we be hung out to dry.
Been cruelty free and car free in P town for 11 years and now it busted
Peace prize for the nice war president is ridiculous.
More and more Barak Obama is showing his true colors. Many people voted for him based soley on his campaign promise to end the Iraq War in 2009. Obviously this has not happened and it pretty much a given that this war will continue until he is replaced with a more suitable anti-war President.
we need your support
Report Finds 13 Million Babies are Born Prematurely Worldwide; 1 Million Die
Interview with Chris Howson, vice president for global programs at the March of Dimes Foundation, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
Barbara Lee has consistently opposed the war in Afghanistan. When congress handed George W. Bush a blank check in 2001, she was the only member of congress who voted against it. Today, she has 2 dozen co-sponsors for legislation to prohibit increases in military funding for Afghanistan. Let's join them in support of H.R. 3699.
Neither Congress nor the courts—determined what NSA electronic surveillance could be used by police or introduced into court by the government to prosecute Citizens.

A great video about challenging the current oppression.

A funny thing happened on the way to the Government takeover of health care. I realized that it had already happened.
The City of San Francisco, California now prepares to host Fleet Week and the Blue Angels Air Show, a high tech, all forces, military recruitment drive, from October 8th to 13th, which the City has requested every year since 1981.

Portland police captain Mark Kruger wants to be chief of police someday. But the Mark Kruger I know is a Nazi and a brute who inflicts pain simply for the perverse joy of doing so. Kruger wants handicapped children to be murdered, and much more. If Kruger ever makes chief, then God help us all.
In Islamic jurisprudence, a man can divorce his wife at any time, in any place, and for any or no reason. However, a woman is given the right to request the religious judge (qadi) to annul (faskh) her marriage if she can prove that the marriage exhibits certain defects that make achieving the purposes of the marriage impossible.
After the recent unemployment numbers were announced, smug politicians promising economic recovery stuttered a bit. This wasn't supposed to happen. Mainstream economists were predicting a smooth upswing in employment, but in September 263,000 more jobs were lost, 62,000 more than August.
Obama reacted predictably to the surprise. He first pointed out that "employment is the last thing to recover from a recession," and concluded that "... we are going to need to grind out this recovery, step by step." Brilliant.
This involves modifying and tampering with public records, corruption, deceit and unfair treatment of the general public regarding the Bureau Of Land Management's planning process and handling of public comments for the John Day Basin Resource Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement and other matters. It would serve the public interest best if the John Day Basin Resource Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement was rendered not worthy of further consideration and set aside in the same way as its nasty sister, the Western Oregon Plan Revisions
Rwandan President Paul Kagame now questions the fairness of the International Criminal Court, and, says, without naming names and countries, that most people who organized the "Rwandan Genocide" are outside Rwanda's borders.
I see only 22 names as co-sponsors of this bill, including only McDermott of WA from PacNW. Where are the others!!!

Dialog wanted, on the air, if not at ecoNvergence...
Torture is torture. Torture is barbaric. Torture of anyone is human rights violation. Torture of an NPA commander, member, trainee or sympathizer is still a torture. Torture will not bring the truth. A person undergoing torture may admit to anything he or she being accused of.
Here's a profile about dairy milk products that exposes the disconnect of pretend ethical "vegetarians". I say vegans should take back the whole proper word. When another species of animal is herbivorous they are called vegetarian, they don't consume other animals, parcel or particulate, anytime ever. Please don't take the title vegetarian if you want to keep exploiting animals, that just is inconsistent. http://www.myspace.com/dairy_is_rape
Please see the links below, and do your own research on this, don't just listen to the MSM on this, before getting a swine flu vaccination, or any vaccination for that matter! Help stop Big Pharma disease mongering and human rights violations! Stop mandatory vaccination!
Has Obama discounted the collateral economic damage and costs the current health bill proposals will cause Americans via surcharges and higher taxes?
These two videos are informative about circumstances around the G20. Apparently, according to one, the Secret Service was at the top of the policing hierarchy in Pittsburgh. In the second video, it is described how the police intended fully to storm the U Pitt buildings on campus, and that the university backed them down. This video was shot by a professor of the University and shows the cops retreating after the red tape barred their entry into dorms, and other buildings.
Study Finds Corporate Media Coverage of ACORN Follows GOP Script
Interview with Christopher Martin, journalism professor at the University of Northern Iowa, conducted by Scott Harris
I hope that the jobless, dispossessed and homeless in America suffering the financial crisis fabricated by the financial extortionisits of America, will inform the Capitol and the While House of the conduct of all the Executives of the Ted Turner Global Media Empire.
The result is a bloated health care system which rewards specialists who perform multiple procedures instead those who provide good preventive care.
At some point we have to step to the plate and put our foot down. It's not going to stop on its own.
One very small reason to give your support to KBOO
Guido Westerwelle, the first openly gay leader of a mainstream German political party, is Germany's most powerful political proponent of ongoing German engagement in the Afghanistan War. As a result of the 09/27/2009 election, he is virtually certain to become the new German Foreign Minister, despite reports that 70% of Germans are demanding immediate withdrawal from Afghanistan.
After 32 Years in Prison, American Indian Activist Leonard Peltier Denied Parole
Interview with Eric Seitz, attorney for Native American activist Leonard Peltier, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
There's a new article writing position filled with thoughts from the feral mind of the articulate, rabble-rousing, non-human animal advocate who here wrote a notice to show you this......senselessness WILL probably never be prohibited by the corporate media, (Reinterpreted;) they system lacks the capital that it takes to admit self-defeat.
Building a readership is part of the incentive program with Examiner.com, and you too can be an Examiner in any of 109 U.S. cities. Can you write an article that they accept, and submit it, referred by me and then I earned $50 (my slave), and you too can begin referring others to this early stage, well-developed info-source.
Consider, Idea is the staple grain of breathetarians. Not to write about religion, maybe I'd state that God is a real enough idea, or is mistaken to be more than such ordinary insignificance, and has been defined in ways I consider agreeably magical, and in so very many more ways disagreeable. The blog has an unwavering policy for omission of religious commentary.
This Grove Field in camas is a wasted of our money! The feds (aka us taxs) should not fund sutch unclene thing as planes. They are loud and my house is load enuff as it is.

From Will Potter's blog Green is the New Red, focusing on the AETA4 cases, the government's misuse of funds and bastardization of the word "terrorist." The actual article provides links with more information on the asterisked cases.
Meg Whitman may be the most dangerous opponent the same-sex marriage supporters may face in 2010; she is a billionaire, she already has the strong support of her Republican base and she has the financial backing to campaign for governor. The political far right has moved from Hollywood to the corporate board room to recruit candidates for public office and to win political power in California.
There will be another big financial tsunami this year. A sudden inflation that sinks dollar and boost the price of gold and foreign currency.
911 is a false flag attack. Al Qaida is used as a scapegoat.
What can we learn about countering cynicism, alienation, racism, classism/poverty, police brutality, war, and other forms of terrorism from this inspiring example of the young Arab/Muslim/newcomer who risked his life to save strangers in a burning building in NYC?
Return of Ousted Honduran President Throws Coup Government Into Disarray
Interview with Greg Grandin, professor of history at New York University, conducted by Scott
October 1 will mark 60 years since Mao Zedong proclaimed the creation of the Peoples Republic of China. This followed the victory of the People's Liberation Army, led by the Communist Party of China, over the US-backed Guomindang (Nationalist Party).

The MA Legislation sets fines up to $1,000 a day for anyone who refuses during a declared state of emergency, to submit to a vaccination, health quarantine or decontamination effort.
When word first arrived that the G-20 would be meeting in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, activists began organizing protest demonstrations. Events like this are what freedom of speech is made for. What better occasion to protest than a meeting of the world's 20 top leaders — most of them deservedly hated — where they will be imposing policy on billions of people worldwide?
The majority of protesters consisted of labor and community groups; they encountered an army of police... literally. The New York Times paints an intimidating picture:
If any elements of the corporate media have been paying any attention
to what's been happening on the streets of Pittsburgh over the past
few days I haven't noticed, so I thought I'd write my own account.
There is a popular assumption asserted ad nauseum by our leaders in
government, by our school text books and by our mainstream media
that although many other countries don't have freedom of speech and
freedom of assembly such as Iran or China we do, and it's what
makes us so great. Anybody who has spent much time trying to exercise
their First Amendment rights in the US now or at any other time since
1776 knows first-hand that the First Amendment looks good on paper
but has little to do with reality.
The current global financial crisis has placed more focus on finding collaborative regional approaches to economic and energy issues. It is through the SPP, that the North American Energy Working Group has further integrated a continental energy strategy. Large energy corridors will expand U.S.-Canada shared strategic objectives in energy supply and energy security.
