President Obama and Prime Minister Harper have sets in motion an agenda which would take U.S-Canada integration to the next level. This includes pursuing a perimeter approach to security in an effort to better address common threats. Despite claims that it would not result in either side surrendering sovereignty, many concerns remain, especially from a Canadian perspective. A North American security perimeter would be defined and dominated by U.S. interests. It would force Canada to make significant sacrifices in regards to sovereignty which could dramatically change the country forever.
A powerful wave of anger among the poor and unemployed Arab masses shakes the young, voracious and brutal capitalism of the North African and Middle Eastern countries supported by the old and bloody capitalism in Europe and America. Anticipation of a social wave that can only be resolved in favor of the vast majority of the population by the emergence of the proletarian class.
We must do more
All about the difference between Obama & Bush or is ther any differnce?
What is the value of a college education? What is the value of a trade skill like electrician, cabinet maker, plumber, welder, or machinist? What is the value of a skill like agriculture, farming? Outsourcing skilled and unskilled labor, the dominate US corporations have made slaves of people in those countries that have accepted the outsourced jobs. Sooner or later those slaves will realize the economic boon is only temporary, and quite illusory. Now, especially in the Middle East, some of those slaves are beginning to awaken and revolt.
The revolution in Egypt erupted like all revolutions do, from the bottom up. It was unemployment and high food prices that propelled working and poor people into action. Now, the media reports that the "opposition" in Egypt is a group of well-to-do folks who have very little in common with the poor of Egypt.
This top down takeover of the revolution is being engineered with the support of the U.S. and European nations, the same allies of the dictatorship that lasted three decades. If this elite group of Egyptians manages to gain power, they'll soon find themselves confronted with the real opposition of Egypt, the overwhelming majority of working and poor people.
u.s $upreme court justice clarence thoma$ & his wife'$ obviou$ financial indiscretion$ are surely not $ipping from our american cup of tea... party mentality !!!
The president of Peru has so far denied the existence of first peoples living in the Amazon along the Peruvian and Brazilian border, and has called it a big lie put forward by environmentalists to stop oil extraction and logging. Now there is video evidence that tribal first peoples do live in the areas slated for destruction.
Ethnic cleansing and genocide of indigenous peoples still goes on, to this day. Civilization at its finest.
Just like at Tia'namen Square in China, the Western MSM sets up the people for disaster.
Sometimes we meet wonderful people and should tell them.
While waiting for Max to Kaiser Medical center at Pioneer Sq. I saw four HLS SUV's and at least 5-6 uniformed Federal Protective Cops patrolling the square and along 6th st. both sides. What was going on.
Jerry Brown's speech. He wants to re-build California. Then let's make those who tore it down pay, not workers and the poor.
Whistleblowers as far back as 2005 warned that KPFA's budgets were not sustainable. Why were the warnings repeatedly disregarded?
american people have lost the importance of their vote with these fec approved ~ karl rove style secret 501c4 secret political slu$h & bill & melida gates are still dishing out our american federal tax exempt u.s. $$ to everyone around the world other than their own little needy americans ...
For better or worse an Islamic State is the likely outcome after (and if) Mubarak leaves.
Raising Lazarus from the dead would be easier than reviving the Egyptian President. So Obama is on to plan B. And as it turns out, plan B looks a lot like the status-quo, minus a change of face. The new face is a man handpicked by the U.S., Mohamed ElBaradei, a UN bureaucrat who hasn't lived in Egypt in decades and is virtually unknown by the Egyptian people. Placing ElBaradei in power will take behind the scenes political maneuvering combined with military repression, a plan that will collide with the revolutionary demands of the people.
The U.S. has already succeeded in gaining support for its plan from the Muslim Brotherhood, the strongest opposition group in Egypt, which has lost much respect from its rank and file for collaborating too closely with Mubarak. Recently, the Brotherhood has attempted to hold back the revolution, to no avail. Now, they've promised support to ElBaradei, who is set to negotiate some kind of transition with Mubarak. The New York Times reports:
Recent Canada-U.S. bilateral talks further deepened security and military ties. They were also significant considering that both countries are negotiating an agreement that would work towards establishing a perimeter approach to security. For those championing for deeper Canada-U.S. integration a North American security perimeter is seen as a logical next step. There now appears to be a renewed push to take NAFTA and the SPP design to the next level and incrementally closer to a North American Union.
Individual actions can't take the place of movement building.
Non vioelnce and prayer, if answered, might stop the unlawful police/fbi raids, but I doubt it.
president obama,why do bill & melinda gates smile when they give away our poor americans needed tax free $$ to others internationally over our own poorer americans ???
Besides this article isn't about the shooting but rather it is a reaction to the shooting.
** president obama,the only color that really seperates americans today is the green **
president obama, it appears obvious 2 all we little american voters that the u.s. is better at assuring fair elections in foreign lands then here in our own home town america .....
Finally, Obama will be delivering real change. But not the kind envisaged by those who voted for him. Rather, Obama's revolutionary change builds upon the foundations laid by Reagan, who drastically altered American society by promoting the corporate sector at the expense of working people.
Obama's state of the union speech was the culmination of months of right-wing policies that began in earnest after the mid-term election, where his fake liberal garb was completely shed. Now, the naked, corporate President presides unhindered by any pretense to help working people.
Olympia Rising Tide recently discovered that we are the target of a government attempt at information-gathering. Down with snitching! The Green Scare sucks!
** president obama, could you please enlighten bill gates,bill clinton,warren buffett & the walmart~walton family that u.s. poor are more then just chump change **
So you request the information, can't wait to get it, then you post it only to find out oh no, we have our information out there now everyone will know who we are. Gee the system works both way, great job. And you want it redacted....glad the internet hides nothing, I have copies of the originals.
Please don't ask me to sign a petition or call.write an elected official.
Homicide for religious reasons is allowed in the USA. This is not possible in Brazil.
bill & melinda gates obviously are somehow more interested in helping others around the world with billion$ of their foundations u.s. federal tax exempt $$$ then attempting to assist our own tens of millions of needy poorer americans right here at home where those tax exempt $$ originated from ???
"Read it, write it, your site, your news" reads the stated purpose of Portland Independent Media Center, Indymedia. So just how does censorship fit in?
So far this year we have seen relative civility among the boys and girls in Washington. This, as compared with the last two years when it was like a virus had spread around D.C. affecting the lawmakers' ability to work together or at least disagree in civil ways. As a result taxpayers received little from Congress for their money in the form of progress. It was no secret contempt for the president was driving much of this.
In the political theater exhibited last December where 13 months of unemployment extensions were linked to continuing tax breaks for the rich, a significant issue was left out of the drama, though it directly impacts the lives of millions. That is the fate of those who have become known as the 99ers.
James L. Brooks' new movie "How Do You Know" is a real cat shit of a low ball. This "propaganda" movie is a fairytale that starts out as: ... Once upon a time there lived an insulated, highly paid, professional straw-blonde pitcher (Wilson or Matty) who lived like a prince in a castle—that is a posh, high-rise penthouse. How many movie reviews noted in this movie patterned the willingness to suggest blonde men are less sophisticated, such as less well read (notice all the books in George Rudd's dive after his innocence fell from the mighty towers of finance—whereas Matty Wilson's penthouse was straight from a sterile and soulless shopping mall—just a kind of manikin factory).
"How Do You Know" is a real cat shit low ball of a movie.
massive die-offs of animals around the world, eternal warfare for no purpose but profits for contractors (human sacrifice), greedy goddamned corporations stealing trillions of dollars, politicians eager to serve corporate interests at the cost of human lives and environmental ruin, and prison cells awaiting anyone who tries to do anything to preserve life on earth or oppose lethal corporate activity...no wonder youth around the world are in revolt against this globalized deathcamp...
You'd think the U.S. was already at war with China, given the immense amount of anti-China rhetoric spouting from the government and media. But selling wars takes time. The average American hasn't bought in to this false advertising yet. So the big lie will be repeated until its roots are deeply sunk into the American psyche: China, says the U.S. government, is a threat that needs to be "dealt with."
This propaganda assault is multi-faceted, taking aim from all directions. Any China-related issue -- military, economic, and social -- is open for attack. For example, the head of the U.S. Department of Defense, Robert Gates, recently visited Asia and focused much of his trip talking about China as a "military threat."
I'm writing this because I want to address, amongst several other things, two issues that have been pissing me off about the AZ terrorist shooting & how it's being covered in the media. It's clear that domestic "home-grown" terrorism poses the most severe criminal threat in this country. This form of terrorism is typically characterized by xenophobia/white supremacy & extremist nationalism, amongst other factors. Yet, conservative whoremongers & the lying media would have us believe rather, that Muslims, immigrants, young Black men, eco-activists, & "socialism" were some-how a far greater danger!
u.s. tea party needs 2 tell texas governor rick perry to stop executing our innocent poorer americans 4 political sport ...
Too many people give up their rights when dealing with police. The Civil Liberties Defense Center in Eugene has this nice reminder on the back of their business cards.
It is becoming apparent that Canadian sacrifices in regards to a free trade agreement with the EU outweighs any potential benefits. While Canada does need to lessen its dependency on the U.S. economy, CETA is based on the failed NAFTA trade model and will only serve to accelerate the corporate takeover of the country.
The capitalist class desperately try to separate the actions of individuals from society. There is no "system". Capitalism is never to blame, only the crazed and murderous actions of flawed individuals.
It's all so timely....too timely.
"The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), a Quaker organization committed to overcoming violence in communities throughout the United States and around the world, is deeply saddened by the violence of January 8, 2011, in Tucson, Arizona, when an attempt to kill U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords brought death and injury to so many.
The shooting rampage on Saturday in Tucson, Arizona was clearly an act of right-wing terrorism. The gunman shot a total of 20 people, critically wounding Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and killing Federal Judge John M. Roll and five others.
In his first statement to the press, Pima County Sheriff Clarence W. Dupnik got it right when he placed the shootings in their political context. He denounced the "political vitriol" that animates the politics of the right and characterized Arizona as the national center of bigotry.
As socialists, we say unequivocally that political assassination has no role inside of a democratic society or our movement. Throughout American history, assassination has been a tool primarily used by the right-wing.
a comment made on a previous reposting here made me put some thought into internet censorship...here's the resulting post...
One granny's take on what is going on in our world after the shooting spree in Tucson.
May we finally stand by the millions with our very lives for what must be done..
As I write, it's less than 12 hours since the shooting of Arizona U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, an attack which has sent much of the United States into shock and mourning. First reported dead, along with a federal judge, a nine-year-old girl, and others, Giffords is currently in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the head, along with several more wounded in a Tucson hospital.
AZ Giffords shooting--I just called KGUN at 1-520-290-7700 to ask about why they have not mentioned the fact that Giffords was on Sarah Palin's hit list. The woman that answered the phone asked HOW I COULD CONFIRM THIS! FUCKING IDIOT CORPORATE MEDIA!
Said she'd check it out. Buncha geniuses. CALL KGUN!
The last stitch in The President's complete betrayal of Progressive Principles
Issues brought up by caller Michael and the caller who followed. Zerzan and guests discuss the anti-drunk, anti-working class primitivist agenda.
Mainstream media is saying that the Rainier OR police chief was killed with his own gun today. Rainier OR is right across the Columbia river from Longview WA.
The arrest of Julian Assange is politically motivated and therefore an attack on the freedom of press
