CALCULATIONS ON THE POSSIBLE USE OF THERMITE TO MELT SECTIONS OF THE WTC CORE COLUMNS
Anomalies involving the collapse of WTC buildings on 9-11 are discussed from the perspective of possible controlled demolition implosion rather than of aircraft impact and fuel-fire damage. Considered is the possible use of thermite to melt sections of the columns of the WTC towers inner cores, thus aiding in their collapse."

"FBI memo encourages local police to spy on protest groups" (via WSWS)
A confidential FBI memorandum sent to over 15,000 local law enforcement agencies in October urged them to "be alert to these possible indicators of protest activity and report any potentially illegal acts to the nearest FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force." Among the "criminal activities" of protesters catalogued in the memo are "use of the internet to recruit, raise funds, and coordinate their activities prior to demonstrations" as well as "[d]uring the course of a demonstration ... using cell phones or radios to coordinate activities or to update colleagues about ongoing events."

CLASS - Democrat vs. Green in San Francisco Mayoral Race
I thought I'd share some news about the current mayoral election in San Francisco, going to a run-off on Dec. 9. They are Gavin Newsom, a DLC-style Democrat, and Matt Gonzalez, a progressive Green Party member and currently president of the Board of Supervisors (SF's city council). Newsom made his name passing anti-homeless and pro-growth legislation; Gonzalez is a true progressive activist.

I've never seen an election that was more explicitly about class. The best and most accurate quote about the run-off came from Peter Camejo, the Greens' 2000 candidate for governor: "This is not a Green versus Democrat fight,'' he said. "It's a coalition of Greens, progressive Democrats and independents against moderate and conservative Democrats and Republicans.''

At the moment, the candidates are running neck and neck. The Dems are panicking and throwing everything they have into stopping Gonzalez's election (Al Gore's even coming to town to stump on Newsom's behalf).

U.S. Military Propaganda Alert
Current headlines celebrate coalition victory as though 54 Iraqi fighters were killed during an ambush. Actual number of those killed may be under 10. Coalition forces were reportedly firing indiscriminately, leveling three buildings and firing at a kindergarten with a tank. Note that the collision of two Black Hawk helicopters is finally being attributed to a missile attack; the Iraqi civilians on the scene reported it correctly on the day it happened.

America’s Future: Endless Enemies, Endless Debt
After the horrific 9/11 tragedy, the "Wire Pullers" began shredding the Bill of Rights. The U.S. Congress then quickly passed the "USA Patriot Act" in the middle of the night, without a public hearing. Later, the draconian "Homeland Security Law" was enacted. And, on March 20, 2003, the Bush-Cheney Gang started, without any just cause, the war with Iraq.

It is well established that the attack on Iraq, was an act of unprovoked aggression, and as such whether they be Ba'athist, Communist, or Islamic, Kurdish or Arab, Sunni or Shia, we stand with the Iraqi People to resist this occupation by force of arms. The right to armed struggle for the sake of national liberation and for the rights of a free and equal people to self-determination, are the highest form of genuine Collective Human Rights, the rights of mankind, which strives for Unity and Independence.
