Journalism Under Fire
September 17, 2004
Rock the nation, the truth shall come, give the corporations a complication.
Now that those in charge to get John Kerry elected have apparently sabatoged their candidate, there is only one solution for a regime change in November. All those who intended to vote for John Kerry must now seriously get behind Ralph Nader.
Sue Niederer of Hopewell, New Jersey, stood up in the middle of a speech by Laura bush yesterday, and tried to be heard. She wore a t-shirt that read, "President Bush You Killed My Son" and she demanded to know why her son, 24 year old Seth Dvorin, had been sacrificed for Mr. bush's oil.
I have never felt more respect for Nader than I do now. With an incredible assault on him by the Democratic Party machine, he has stood his ground, facing the enormous legal challenges and the viscious personal attacks and slanders and has managed to not only fend them off, but keep talking about real issues and illuminating the things that few others dare to.

Bizarre police presence at today's cheney protest.
Where is he going with this commercial?
As we sum up the week of protest at the RNC and look to the struggles ahead, we should think about those who will be cracking history books in the future. We need to think about this today as we run the streets and struggle to win hearts and minds, fighting for a whole different world. As we rise up to say NO! to this rolling juggernaut of imperialist destruction, we need to think about all those future people who will be learning about the historic struggles that took place in the early part of the 21st century. When the world was crackling with both danger and opportunity..how did history unfold?

The gender of babies is being determined while still inside the womb nowadays. Parents decide what gender-based color clothing to buy, pre-birth. How much of our gender identity is based on biology versus cultural environment? And how is sex or gender determined?
Washington County Public Utility District major 34-95 and 34-96 for November 2, 2004 elections are very important for ratepayers and not for the Portland General Electric and Westside Economic Alliance of large industries which receive discounted rates from PGE. PGE electric rates are 60% higher than PUD's in Oregon and Washington. Mayors of Wshington County support PGE since they receive poltical contributions. Outsource PGE and bring our own hydroelectric BPA resource.
A Pew survey shows that 56 percent of the public now believes that Kerry mentions his religious faith ''about the right amount.'' In comparison, only 53 percent said the same thing about President Bush, down 9 points from this time last year.
Swing Along With Ralph
It's very difficult to write up a summary of the literally hundreds of events that took place in the run up and during the Republican National Convention (RNC) here in New York City. In many respects the mobilization exceeded my expectations-not so much in the size of the street protests but in the diversity and creativity of actions spanning all forms from poetry to banner drops to flash mobs to street theater.
Black Panther Party was not about Black Nationalism it was about working together for the benefit of all, to fight capitalism.
Much Debate over what and whom a organization should follow. listen to what Huey said...
New songs I heard on atrios.blogspot.com tonight
I wrote this for a debate in some Pan-Arab Circles on the Merits of Communism, but I think it applies to many recent posts, as well.
Many people remember Kwame Ture from the epic book "Black Power" as a youth with sun glass, and an uncanny ability to inspire a crowd. What many people to do not realize and are unwilling to accept, here in the US, a former APARTHEID STATE, and product of settler-colonialism, is that on a world scale Kwame Ture was respected as one of the greatest and most scholarly theorists in North America. He met with Ho Chi Minh, Kim Il Sung, Castro, etc. He opened up ties between revolutionaries in Ireland and the African Diaspora in the US. He was as at the forefront of Socialist and anti-imperialist circles, and WAS A DEVOTE INTERNATIONALIST WITHOUT GIVING UP HIS AFRICAN IDENTITY.
Shortly before his death, in a true spirt of internationalism and friendship, Kwame Ture was going to attend a conferance in Libya, against the will of the US. Even as he expresses his internationalism, it is expressed from "were he comes from". In fact, the name Kwame Ture is derived from to great Marxists (or Marxist-leaning), Kwame Nkruman and Sekou Ture.

Remember the repressive parade ordinance that the Sacramento City Council passed last year before the USDA Agricultural Ministerial? The city council refused to rescind the odious law at its meeting last night.
Iraq War illegal says UN chief Kofi Annan
The National Alliance of Black Panther feels it necessary to issue a statement of it's intent in light of the recent postings persecuting it for not being a Black Nationalist organization.
Top Presidential Advisor Karl Rove receives far too little attention.
I am opposed to 9-11 conspiracy theories since I am convinced that they are evidence for historical amnesia as well as demonstrating a profound lack of empathy for the victims of American Foreign Policy.
Kerry should go after Nader's endorsement.
She sat in a tree that she finally bought from the timber industry (which was cut anyway) and now she's disappeared.
Tory leader Michael Howard made his first major speech on climate change on Monday 9/13, as Tony Blair prepares a similar speech for Today - a Green Party spokesperson has accused both party leaders of "trying to pull the wool over the voters' eyes".
Let us analyse our school days. Let us dissect the pre-determined routine that is imposed upon us, regardless of our needs and desires. The unsolicited schedules and activities that we are forced to comply with. Though were we consulted?
Nader caters with the Republicans...again.
These Green, 3 elected officials from Wisconsin discuss this campaign and seek Green votes for Kerry in closely contested states.
The expansion of humanity's ecological impact on the planet cannot continue much longer without violating natural thresholds. To survive, we must develop a new way of thinking about our economic activities. This article briefly describes the author's approach to such a new mode of thought.
It discusses the similarities in the thinking of President Bush and John Kerry regarding the war with Iraq . The futileness of the two-party election system in this country. And the need for a complete change of government in the United States.
are there any planned actions for the election?
We are constantly reminded by our elected officials (and those who steal their elections) and the pro-Israel filtered media, of the acts of revenge that Palestinian and Muslim groups have committed against the people of Israel, however, we are almost never told about the brutal and inhumane acts of state terrorism that the government of Israel has beeen inflicting against the people of Israel, ever since its inception.
Excellent documentary featuring Noam Chomsky, Scott Ritter, Norman Mailer, Karen Kwiatkowski, Norman Solomon and more examine the rise of the Neo-Con agenda and the pall of fear that has settled over the USA, and the rise of American Empire abroad. Must Viewing. See it here!
Where is the outrage, or even the slightest hint of recogniton, of the US public over the horrific killings by the Amerikan military against Iraqi civilians, especially over the past several days?
Despite his market dominance Phil Knight's sneaker empire is strangely vulnerable. Behind the ubiquitous swoosh lurks the uneasy knowledge that the Nike brand was built on sweatshop labor and by paying big bucks to celebrities to create a bogus corporate cool.
A headline I saw got me wondering.
this says it all...the only one in the photo that does not have his hand on his heart. Of course, he has no compassion, no heart.
The ban expires at midnight, some like it, others hate it. I just wanted to throw in my two cents and see what you guys think.
I recently stumbled upon the "Public Assitance" board game in a thrift store. It is a telling game of racial and class-based stereotypes that should really be archived in a museum somewhere. I have taken the time to document this bit of American race and class history.
Call them social clubs or civic activists or secret societies, organizations like the Lions and Masons are huge and have a major influence on political thought...
Bush does not admit mistakes and take responsibility for his actions. In fact, Bush has a pattern of not taking personal responsibility for his actions, inaction and mistakes. Real leaders take responsibility for there actions. It has been alleged that Bush skipped out on his National Guard service, used illegal drugs and was pulled over for a DUI. Bush has refused to answer questions about the alleged previous drug use but its time the American people got an answer...
Organizing a working-class resistance to the bipartisan class offensive of the bourgeoisie is as much an issue today as it was during the months of imperialist flag-waving in late 2001.
"...9/11 is a story that will never end, precisely because neither side in the debate will ever believe the other side. It doesn't matter how many facts are unearthed. History isn't made by facts. It's made by interpreting facts. In this case, each side can go on forever, fitting all the facts into its preferred interpretation...."

Germans -- and much of the rest of the world -- would like to see a change in U.S. leadership as the transatlantic alliance drifts further apart, a number of recent studies show.
Three years after the Sept. 11, the terrorism map has spread and the threat has become transparent and harder to ferret out. Nor have we tackled the roots of the problem: poverty and oppression in many Muslim countries.

This is the most important election in history, even more important than the 2000, which was the most important election in history at the time. If we don't stop the Monster Bush, we're doomed!
Remember the day we got blown up!
And turn off those stupid lights at the Convention Center!
Have you been assimilated? Are you an autonomous individual acting of your own free will, or have you unwittingly become the tool of some larger organism? Before you reject these questions as absurd, consider the following. Even if you act of your own free will or, at least, believe that you act of your own free will, what if the information that you base your decisions upon has been constructed with the intention of causing you to make various predetermined choices?
Bush supporters really don't want those documents to be fakes, because if they are ...
