Do US Prisons Violate European Human Rights Law? --Interview w/ Hamja Ahsan & Aviva Stahl
Robert H. King of the Angola 3 and Hamja Ahsan in London earlier this year. An important ruling is expected early in September from the European Court of Human Rights, regarding whether or not US prisons respect human rights enough for the UK to extradite 'war on terror' suspects to the US. We interview activist/journalist Aviva Stahl from CagePrisoners.com alongside Hamja Ahsan, the brother of Talha Ahsan, one of the appellants that will be seriously affected by the September ruling, imprisoned since 2006.

A Short Note on Dialectical Materialism
In order to move forward from capitalist society the working class needs an ironclad philosophy, one that can be of use in the storm and stress of revolution. Making sense of a turbulent world requires a method of thinking that is flexible, fluid and takes evolutionary transformation into account.

Before that, Ryan had only become right-wing leadership material in the last year, based on his proposed national budget that hacks away at the core of many national social programs, including Medicare.

Why Asylum For Julian Assange Is Central To Today’s Politics: Torture and the American Ch
If there were a lightening rod to energize political apathy in this heavily propagandized world democratic right of dissent, such as to challenge corrupt government practice, should be it. But certain U. S. leaders' apparent intention to incarcerate and punish Julian Assange for leaking U.S. secrets puts our black methods in the limelight. What were his motives and equally what has been the character of U.S. foreign policy? It seems revelations were meant to highlight U.S. corruption as people around the world have come to fear American brutality. Many around the globe know the United States as a rogue bully of an empire that regularly uses intimidation to get its way. It takes a real macho government to push around countries like Ecuador, Sweden and lapdog England. As has been shown over and over the United States does not respect law, legal distinctions or diplomatic norms.

HUZZAH: THE GOVERNMENT SAVES US FROM THE EVIL BANKSTERS....OR MAYBE NOT
Remember all that call for more "regulation" from "outraged banksters" that such fraudulent and criminal behavior as robo-signing, un-regulated derivatives creation and discounting, and all the hand-wringing that accompanied it, could be tolerated? The fact that this Consumer Financial Protection Bureau resides in the Federal Reserve says it all: "Here: Let us regulate ourselves, install our regulatory offices in the one institution in America that has no public accountability, won't even publish its shareholders, has never been properly audited, and we'll protect you! By the way, you have to borrow money from us to pay our salaries while we're busy protecting you, thereby increasing your indebtedness to us."

This may be too little too late: the country is being torn at the seams into the nightmare of ethnic-religious cleansing and massacres.

The Next Stage in the Destruction of Syria
The U.S. media has made its intentions clear: the 'rebels' attacking Syria's government must have more support to advance Syria's "revolution." This was the result of the much-hyped advance of Syria's rebels into the country's two largest cities, which the western media portrayed as a defining moment in global democracy. But "journalists" like these have blood on their hands, with much more in the works.

Solo geniuses who scorn the society that provides the shoulders they sit on
The mythology of the solo genius purports to justify massive inequality because the "solo genius" single-handedly created a popular product and thus single-handedly brought prosperity upon the land. In reality, without the infrastructure that government provides in the form of educational institutions, a court system that adjudicates commercial disputes, police and the military to suppress dissent at home and abroad, an ever larger basket of subsidies, and "free trade" agreements that promote corporate interests above human rights, billionaires would not be able to become billionaires.

Paving the Way for a U.S.-Canada Economic and Security Perimeter
"The Beyond the Border deal provides the essential framework for U.S.-Canada integration with the action plan being incrementally implemented. This piece by piece approach has allowed many different initiatives to go unnoticed and fly under the radar. Some of these individual steps may seem insignificant, but combined together they are further merging economic and security ties between both countries. This is paving the way for a North American security perimeter which would mean sacrificing what is left of our sovereignty and independence."

Prelude to Movie Reviews of Political Animals: Why Hillary Rod-Iron Clinton Should Be Reti
Hillary Clinton seems much a mess. Possessed actually, as her appearance, attitude and demeanor, at times, suggests she is in some movie and her character is veering to evil antagonist or machination machine—militantly bureaucratic and all gang mobsters of huge government might imply. Enough with feminist, protectionism claims she is being judged because she is a woman to different standards. Yes there was a terrible and concerted propaganda war to incite hatred against Bill in any way possible as well as everything Democrats ever stood for (or purported). Yet now she is equally manipulated by forces beyond her ken as psychologically blind invalid—because she has need to lash out at something—something society and powerful special interests will allow her unconscious anger to focus. One doesn't have to understand the likes of Thomas Scheff's Emotions and Violence: Shame and Rage in Destructive Conflicts to realize where she is coming from and likely to go. Deliberate and accidental humiliation does indeed motivate people to engage violence, which seems the very modus operandi of both Israel and the United States in relation to several Muslim groups.

Confronting Anarchists
In Portland's broad community of anarchists I'm coming across more and more self-described "anarchists" and "anti-authoritarians" that have little knowledge of the philosophies backing up their "anarchist" ideals. They are "anarchists" who seek nihilism and violence - not as a mean, as an end. I sense that many of these individuals are adopting the term "anarchist" as a justification for their actions, and not as a philosophy. It would be harmless if it were only a fashion, a Circle-A badge on their school bag, but this is not the case, it is much more dangerous. Soon we will see Anarchism as synonymous with Terrorism, as it is in the UK, and there will be much truth to it. We can only blame ourselves for this, and only we can do something about it.
