Congress Approval Rating Slides Back To All Time Lows; 83% Disapprove
From Gallup: "Ten percent of Americans in August approve of the job Congress is doing, tying last February's reading as the lowest in Gallup's 38-year history of this measure. Eighty-three percent disapprove of the way Congress is doing its job." So what happens when the approval rating hits 0%? Does America automatically revert back to Monarchy (for all you Sid Meier fans out there), and what then? Back to Slavery?

Rose City Antifascists Expose Nazi Neighbors and Coworkers During Day of Action
Nick Cheshire poses in this outdoor photo shoot. Note the Volksfront insignia. On July 31, as promised, Rose City Antifascists delivered a message to white supremacist organizers our state. We tracked down leading Volksfront International activists Casey and Alaina Joy Banyas of Albany, OR at their residence, and also located Volksfront leader Nick Cheshire at his workplace, Morgan Distributing in Portland. In addition, our organization also asked for information from those living near the last known address for Nick Cheshire and wife, Leah Cheshire (nee Crandall), in Oregon City. We mailed flyers to about 250 to the neighbors of these neo-Nazi thugs, and also contacted Nick Cheshire's employers at Morgan Distributing about the presence of a neo-Nazi activist within their company.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is asking for your input on what impacts to consider when exporting liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States to Asia. The Jordan Cove/Pacific Connector proposal would include the impacts of building a 235-mile pipeline through southern Oregon, cutting through nearly 400 streams, likely using eminent domain, clear-cutting through 80 miles of public forests, decreasing national energy supplies and increasing domestic prices by exporting U.S. natural gas from a terminal in Coos Bay.

WHERE THE FRAUD THAT IS DESTROYING PEOPLES' LIVES STARTED
In the 1800s, a series of bonds were issued by the Peruvian government to those that wanted to buy them. These bonds were to be PAID in GOLD when they reached maturity. Since the amount of gold to be paid out was PEGGED to the value of gold in the 1800s which was low, these bonds were very valuable. Still don't get it? Okay, let's say that you had a bond that had a face value of $1,000 in GOLD...but gold was valued at $10.00 an ounce back in the 1800s. To repay you the $1,000 in gold at $10.00 an ounce, the bond would pay 100 ounces of gold. In today's dollars, that $1,000 contract would be worth about $160,000 (rounded up), because gold is worth about 1,580 per ounce. Multiply that idea by MILLIONS OF OUNCES and you have some idea of the situation that the Durham trust found itself in just a decade ago.

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.

Symbolism of the Cascadian Flag
At the edge of the world and the end of civilization, we stand on the abyss of ecological collapse, mass extinction and catastrophic change. Our bioregion is under an assault by corporations and the cancer that is consumerism. This assault is a series of battles from the theft of the water commons by Nestlé. The theft of coal from Rockies and its spreading of black dust on across our lands on trains headed to the coast. The mismanagement of the US government and theft of public funds by Bechtel of nuclear waste at Hanford as well as a denial of contamination of the Columbia watershed. The proposal of fracking in southwest Washington State. Mass denial or even cover up of radiation from Fukushima in water, milk, food, tuna and so forth. All the while the society is under attack with tuition costs, public transportation fare increases, social safety-net cuts, debt increases, foreclosures and a health insurance system that is nothing else but a pyramid scheme. While drones fly over head as police surveillance increases and the death toll mounts in wars overseas. On October 7th will be the eleventh year of the American Imperial War in Afghanistan. Maybe its time for a paradigm shift before global climatic and ecological collapse! Free Cascadia, decolonize your mind and liberate your spirit!

An urban farm in Albany, CA
For 3 weeks, urban farm activists occupied and farmed a plot of land in Albany, CA. Riot police raided the farm on May 14... The ground we were sitting on would eventually be paved over with concrete or asphalt, according to the UC [Berkeley] plan. The UC administrators were supposed to be the stewards of this parcel of public land, but who ever told them it was theirs to develop? I thought of the 19th century philosopher who famously defined property as theft.
