"So whom are we to trust from among the discredited list of our political, military and media leaders? If your answer to this question is "none of the above," then welcome to the Internet community of conspiracy theorists (like me) who aren't willing to accept official reassurances that all is well as airborne Armageddon takes flight over America for the length of the Mississippi River."
Targeted for their militancy, co-captives Wallace, Woodfox and Robert King had organized a prison chapter of the Black Panther Party and they became known as the Angola 3 after they were falsely convicted by kangaroo courts and all-white juries.
From the U.S. to Europe media and politicians are singing the same tune: "budget deficits must be drastically reduced -- by cutting social programs -- so that global bond investors do not threaten the economy."
Not since the "war on terror" was announced has government policy been so shrouded in confusion and unanswered questions. In the same way we are not to ask how U.S. foreign policy has angered millions in the Middle East, we must remain equally silent about questioning the recent history behind the current "deficit crisis."
It is unfortunate, uncomfortable, and there is a giant infrastructure in denial. Things as a consequence will get worse for life and many people.
This article includes health and civil rights arguments in opposition to the use of body scanners and "pat-downs" at airports. Most of these arguments have not been given enough attention in the popular media.
It is problematic TSA for reasons of national security will at some point, Force Citizens boarding trains and buses, to submit to invasive body scans and searches; routinely search Americans and their vehicles at highway checkpoints, before allowing passage.
All BS aside- it's the new Korea
To create jobs and forestall the planet from ecological collapse, the taxes are to be directed to:
1-Efficiency, 2-Reforestation, 3-Renewable Energy and 4-Sustainability for the poor
You've seen the news reports and heard the horror stories.The TSA's new "enhanced pat downs" (i.e. sexual assault searches) and their "advanced imaging technology" (i.e. naked scanners).Leaked x-ray images of men and women that show their naked bodies have flooded the internet.Screaming children have been groped and woman sexually assaulted.
TSA appears headed toward shutting down Americans' Right To Travel Freely in their own Country.
With national elections barely over, Republicans and Democrats unveiled their real political agenda, in the form of Obama's Deficit Reduction Commission. The bi-partisan commission has a nightmare vision for working people that, if implemented, will remold American society to mirror the current ruler of U.S. politics -- the corporations and wealthy.
HOUSTON, 11/11/10 (Veterans Day) -- With Netanyahu in the United States during a hastily announced nuclear national level exercise and nuclear emergencies occurring after his arrival, the readership of my false flag analysis shot up from 322,000 Saturday morning to over 400,000 on Sunday night, according to Google.

What distinguished Marx from all his contemporaries who professed revolutionary aspirations was his identification of the revolutionary agent: "The emancipation of the working classes [of every country] must be conquered by the working classes themselves... ." [Karl Marx: "Provisional Rules of the Association," in The General Council of the First International, 1864-1866] And: "The proletarian movement is the self-conscious, independent movement of the immense majority, in the interests of the immense majority" [Karl Marx and Frederick Engels: The Manifesto of the Communist Party]. In other words, socialist revolution will not be achieved by moral-minded capitalists nor by a small, elite revolutionary band. Only the working class can liberate itself, and it will accomplish this as a conscious, deliberate choice.
The public is learning about false flags and state terrorism.
A great approach to community and economy from the importance of gifts.
Why the Republicans are responsible for all our ills.
Just hours after I posted the breaking news about Saturday's surprise nuke exercise, the Indian Point nuclear power plant 24 miles from New York City was in a crisis.
On the eve of the Republican-dominated mid-term election, working people were told to vote Democrat to prevent a "truly dangerous" Republican party from taking power. There is an element of truth in this: the Republican Party has been sprinting to the far right for decades, to the point where they are incapable of speaking sensibly about political issues.
But in a close second place in this rightward scramble are the Democrats, who've spent decades racing into the arms of the corporations that dominate both political parties unchallenged.
It's a good thing for Ghost Troop and me that there is ample evidence for our case for being spot-on with our analysis and advanced warnings, since it gives us credibility at crunch time.
Every day we wake up, drink our coffee and send our children off to school without speaking out against racial injustice and police brutality, we are accepting and paying for those inequalities.
I've been proud that DC IMC has kept a backup of all its posting during the A16 protest. Hat's off to Eddie down at DC IMC. This page documents so much of what happened during that protest- or was it a police riot? Who knew. There is much to be learned from the past.
'To opt out for a pat down, say "I opt out." Warning: Pat downs are no longer the simple search like those in the past. In some instances, as part of an "enhanced patdown," the TSA screener may use the front of their hands to touch your genitals. Should you feel that you or your child were inappropriately touched, call for a law enforcement officer. If presented with the option to leave the checkpoint for a private screening, consider politely declining with a "No, thank you," as you will likely be asked to remove your clothing. Pat downs can be performed in public view.'
This video is an out-take form a longer video filmed in Portland on 10/05/10.
I included in this clip the topic of the police stopping you in public to have a friendly *talk.
This video is on "your citizens rights" when being stopped on a sidewalk (and not driving).
This video explains from the police's own words what they are trying to do and what "you can do"
We need to do something now!
The Left is fractured and weak, but there is hope in the form of a movement and Party whose very existence is aligned with the fight to protect civil liberties, provide basic necessities and deliver a swift counterpunch to the fat cats in Sacramento and D.C.
Did fascism ever leave US America
There's a lot of work to be done. Choose your actions carefully.
The Internet analyses of the of Ghost Troop have become legend to Internet Intelligentsia as the new samizdat. In his statement below to government investigators, Captain May is countering the fifth column that is the real power of Al-Qaeda. The editorial about our missions is accurate, as the archives to which it links will show.

Any criticism of Jon Stewart must begin with enthusiastic praise: his Daily Show is where millions of people go for important news that is purposely ignored by the mainstream media. Consequently, both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have become icons of the political Left.
During the Bush administration, their shows highlighted the lies and hypocrisies used to engage in foreign wars while destroying the civil liberties in the United States; Colbert's speech at the White House Correspondence dinner - with Bush present - will go down in history as a moment of great courage and confrontation between a satiric comedian and a war criminal.
so last week we had a thread on whether the propensity to disbelieve the official 9/11 story was inherently a "left" or "right" phenomenon:
Thank you to all who responded.
A new article has been posted RE: the satirical Stewart/Colbert 'rally' held in DC yesterday, by the respected investigative journalist Robert Parry (researched Iran-Contra). Mr. Parry also had posted a quite similar article on the 'confused' state of American public political awareness a couple weeks ago.
In both articles, Mr. Parry took a direct sideswipe (a little less harsh, but not much in yesterday's piece) at the 9/11 truth movement, characterizing them as "leftist".
with all due and great respect to Robert Parry: does he know what he is talking about?
How bad is it?
The world watches as France once again erupts in protests, demonstrations, and strikes. So much is at stake. If France's corporate-dominated government is able to increase the retirement age, other governments will be empowered to follow through with their plans to do the same.
If labor, student, and community groups succeed in stopping the pension reform -- or toppling the government -- workers in other countries will likewise be inspired to fight back and organize in the French fashion.

What sound does a pig make?
Explosion sound and a check outside sees all dark on the other side of Burnside, K.B.O.O. is all darked out also, except Emergency Lights, seen from the windows, a check of the 90.7 F.M. signal comes in great.
a question for users of Portland Indy.
lately (or maybe I'm just noticing it now and it's been around a lot longer??), there seems to be a canard, meme, whatever you want to call it among right wing folks, media sources, politicans, etc. that 'conspiracy theorists' are automatically or by default 'the leftists' or 'the liberals'. "Liberal conspiracy theory" - you're familiar with the appellation.
Vive La Resistance! Support the French workers! Strike, Blockade, Sabotage! Only class resistance can save us now!
Teabaggers are being "bagged" back into the same old two party system—that is not just corrupted but corroded—so the joke will ultimately be on them—exactly in the same way that the joke was on progressives, who equally thought a corporate owned "top-down" Democratic Party was going to deliver a new deal of any kind—even as the bottom up got many of them elected into office.
Biden came to support Patty Murray D for Senate. Like Joe Anybody reported on the Obama event, I found the same situation here. Of course I was a protester!
President Obama comes to Portland and you cheer?
Sarah Palin actually violated U.S. flag code by signing a flag.
yes we can is trying to use past supporters to screw them further
Message of Solidarity with the workers and students of France from the exploited masses of the United States
The Tribune won't allow my response. I think its a good one.
No doubt government is sitting on a ton of illegally obtained evidence.
This year is supposed to be different from others. This election year the people are supposed to have risen up and demanded something new from their government. This election year the people are supposed to have said they will take no more, and are supposed to have selected candidates who represent a closer approximation of themselves. This year the tenor is supposed to have been set by the grass roots.

Responding to disaster runs much more smoothly when done in the light of day.
Stocks are booming; the Dow Jones soared past 11,000; the very wealthy are bursting from their financial seams. Meanwhile, mass unemployment continues, with 95,000 more jobs -- mostly teachers -- lost in September.
As millions of Americans sink into desperation, President Obama continues to preach the good word of optimism, based on the gospel of "private sector job growth."
According to the President, the hundreds of thousands of public sector jobs that have been recently destroyed - due to the budget crises of nearly every state and municipality - should be overlooked, due to the "encouraging" job growth of the private sector.
Portland has been rather quiet about the high school redesign issue. As of last evening, it was formally decided that Marshall High School (all three academies) in the struggling Lents neighborhood of Southeast Portland will be closed. Benson Polytechnic High School will become a smaller magnet school, although it will remain a four-year vocational high school. Jefferson High School will become a focus school. The affected student communities and their families have been vocal. However, where was the rest of the Portland community? Were people silent because they did not have children in the schools? Did they not care because their children's schools were not targeted? It takes a village to raise a child. Where was the rest of the Portland village during the high school redesign process? Here are some questions to ponder as the high school redesign takes effect.... Your silence will not protect you (or yours).
On the case for mass exodus from Obamaland.
It would be easy to miss the meaning of the October 2nd One Nation demonstration in Washington, D.C., given that all the media — and many on the left — focused their attention almost exclusively on the calls by top organizers of the action to vote for the Democrats in the coming election. This was, no doubt, part of the picture. But it was not the most important part.
Do you really want to celebrate the legacy of a man who committed heinous crimes against the Indigenous people of the Caribbean and throughout the Americas? Check out the video at http://www.reconsidercolumbusday.org/
Hell yes. And fuck Columbus Day, too.
The official October 1st release of the United Nations Report on Human Rights Abuses in the Democratic Republic of Congo, 1993-2003, documenting the Rwandan and Ugandan armies' massacres of Rwandan Hutu refugees and Congolese Hutus in the Democratic Republic of Congo, should be a defining moment for President Barack Obama.
This year the Democrats are going to lose but dissident voices can win. We have a new and powerful excuse to boycott the elections, fighting corporate power, but it has to be organized and an empowered boycott. This is a call against apathy, against the corporate political parties and for an empowered non-voter.
Cry baby billionaires and millionaires really froth and get angry at this initiative. Just for that it seems worth voting for.
How are we to interpret the massive One Nation demonstration in Washington D.C. on October 2nd? Was this a rally to elect Democrats? A progressive movement hijacked by the Democratic Party? Or something else?
