Special JFK Day Update (Portland Nuclear Inquest)
"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."

Who's Behind the Deficit Crisis
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."

With national elections barely over, Republicans and Democrats unveiled their real political agenda, in the form of Obama's Deficit Reduction Commission.

The Strategic Role of the Role of the United Front
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 Democrats Prepare to Move RIght
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.

Body-scan Alert - Not Suffering Indignities at Airports
'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.'

Interpreting Jon Stewart's Politics
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.

9/11 'conspiracists': "left" or "right" - (Robert Parry, again)
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:
 http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2010/10/403165.shtml
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?

French Lessons for U.S. Workers
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.

The Struggle for a Workers' Recovery
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 HIGH SCHOOL REDESIGN -- Questions to Consider
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).
