Man Armed With Rifle, Molotovs and Flares Attacks ICE And Is Shot By Police In Tacoma, WA
Around 4 a.m., officers responded to an ICE employee's report of a man armed with a rifle and throwing home-made incendiaries at the building and vehicles in the detention center's parking lot, as well as attempting to ignite a propane tank, according to Tacoma police. Officers say they saw the man wearing a satchel and holding flares, as well as the rifle.

Officers reported "shots fired," police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said, at which point the officers had fired; she did not know whether the man also fired. Officers retreated to cover, uninjured. After medical aid arrived, officers approached the man and determined that he had been shot and killed.

6 Tempe, AZ Police Officers Kicked Out Of Starbucks Because Customer Felt Unsafe
Six Arizona police officers reportedly were asked to leave a Starbucks in Tempe by a barista because a customer felt uncomfortable, KNXV reported.

The six officers from the Tempe Police Department were at the Starbucks on Thursday, the television station reported. According to the Tempe Officers Association, the officers paid for their drinks and were standing together inside the coffee shop, according to KNXV.

According to the Tempe Officers Association, a barista told the officers they were making a customer "feel uncomfortable," the television station reported. The officers allegedly were asked to either move out of the customer's sight or leave, KNXV reported.

The officers left, the television station reported.

The actions of the barista did not sit well with the Tempe Officers Association, which tweeted its displeasure.

"Don't appreciate @Starbucks asking our #Tempe cops to leave your establishment on the #4thofjuly2019," the organization tweeted, using the hashtag #ZeroRespect. The tweet included a "Dump Starbucks" logo.

Reggie Borges, a spokesman with Starbucks, spoke by telephone to KTVK and said customers visiting the coffee shop should "feel welcomed and embraced."

Guns and the left: I'm a left-wing anarchist. Guns aren’t just for right-wingers.
The long, forgotten history of pro-gun left-wing groups.

Right-wingers have held an unearned monopoly on gun culture for too long. Whether it's in the halls of legislative power or in the comments under "gun bunny" photos on Instagram, there is a prevailing narrative that pegs guns and armed self-defense exclusively to Republicans, racist libertarians, and other generally Constitution-obsessed weirdos. It maintains that those on the left want to take away everyone's guns and swathe the entire country in bubble wrap. But I'm an anarchist, and I call bullshit.

The Ongoing Restructuring of the Greater Middle East
June 25th, 2019

So, according to the corporate media, and to President Literally Hitler, himself, while America was sleeping last Friday morning, the U.S. Air Force was just minutes away from bombing the bejesus out of some desolate outposts somewhere in the Iranian desert and launching another catastrophic military blunder in the Middle East.

At approximately 0400 Zulu time, President Hitler and his top advisors (among them, John "the Walrus of Death" Bolton) were gathered in the Pentagon's War Room, flight paths arcing across the big board. The hotline to Vladimir Putin's office in St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow had been activated. The full force of the U.S. military was about to be brought to bear upon a package of top-level Iranian targets with no strategic value whatsoever. Apparently, "planes were in the air!" It was all so terribly, terribly exciting.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler: Multi-Million Dollar Property Owner But... All Is Not 'Rosy'
Ted Wheeler, a sixth-generation Oregonian, owns a $1.3 million home in Portland's West Hills, a beachfront home in Arch Cape, Ore., and an $800,000 property in the San Juan Islands.

Tax returns he disclosed to WW show his annual income averaged $1.5 million between 2012 and 2014.

Wheeler rails against the notion that he is defined by his privilege

And he is irked by the media coverage that has trailed him since entering public office.

"People don't really have a clue about who I am or what makes me tick or what my values are," he says. "It's never been about the money in my family."

Wheeler's great-grandmother's grandfather, William Kerns, settled in Clatskanie, Ore., in 1852, but it was the later arrivals to his family that built its great fortune.

Wheeler's great-grandfather Coleman Wheeler launched the family's timber business in 1912, in the coastal Oregon town that now bears his name: Wheeler, Ore.

The family timber company eventually merged with others to become Willamette Industries, which sold to Weyerhaeuser in 2002 for $6 billion. At the time of the sale, Wheeler's father, Samuel, controlled 1.5 million shares worth about $83 million, according to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

"Manipulation of needs" is one of the control instruments. Rulers change needs through manipulation. False needs are needs imposed from above like the need for production and consumption of useless things. The need for freedom as a vital need no longer exists in a large part of the synchronized population in developed capitalist countries. While individuals are manipulated and indoctrinated, they should be able to distinguish false and true needs.

Decentralize and boycott social media on July 4-5: a Declaration of Digital Independence
Humanity has been contemptuously used by vast digital empires. Thus it is now necessary to replace these empires with decentralized networks of independent individuals, as in the first decades of the Internet. As our participation has been voluntary, no one doubts our right to take this step. But if we are to persuade as many people as possible to join together and make reformed networks possible, we should declare our reasons for wanting to replace the old.

We declare that we have unalienable digital rights, rights that define how information that we individually own may or may not be treated by others, and that among these rights are free speech, privacy, and security. Since the proprietary, centralized architecture of the Internet at present has induced most of us to abandon these rights, however reluctantly or cynically, we ought to demand a new system that respects them properly. The difficulty and divisiveness of wholesale reform means that this task is not to be undertaken lightly. For years we have approved of and even celebrated enterprise as it has profited from our communication and labor without compensation to us. But it has become abundantly clear more recently that a callous, secretive, controlling, and exploitative animus guides the centralized networks of the Internet and the corporations behind them.

The long train of abuses we have suffered makes it our right, even our duty, to replace the old networks. To show what train of abuses we have suffered at the hands of these giant corporations, let these facts be submitted to a candid world.

Upgrade Your Memory With A Surgically Implanted Chip
In a grainy black-and-white video shot at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, a patient sits in a hospital bed, his head wrapped in a bandage. He's trying to recall 12 words for a memory test but can only conjure three: whale, pit, zoo. After a pause, he gives up, sinking his head into his hands.

In a second video, he recites all 12 words without hesitation. "No kidding, you got all of them!" a researcher says. This time the patient had help, a prosthetic memory aid inserted into his brain.

Over the past five years, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has invested $77 million to develop devices intended to restore the memory-generation capacity of people with traumatic brain injuries. Last year two groups (Mayo Clinic / Michael Kahana with Medronic Plc., and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center with University of Southern California) conducting tests on humans published compelling results.

The crisis of social democracy is rooted in the abandonment of a vision beyond the pure market society.

So, the Friedrich Ebert foundation collaborates in the Good Society project in Europe and supports the model Economy of Tomorrow in Asia.

The Hitlerization of Jeremy Corbyn (Among Others)
June 13th, 2019

Every time you think the corporatocracy's manufactured anti-Semitism hysteria cannot possibly get more absurd, they somehow manage to outdo themselves. OK, stay with me now, because this is a weird one.

Apparently, American Hitler and his cronies are conspiring with some secret group of "Jewish leaders" to stop British Hitler from becoming prime minister and wiping out all the Jews in Great Britain. Weird, right? But that's not the weird part, because maybe American Hitler wants to wipe out all the Jews in Great Britain himself, rather than leaving it to British Hitler ... Hitlers being notoriously jealous regarding their genocidal accomplishments.

No, the weird part is that everyone knows that American Hitler does not make a move without the approval of Russian Hitler, who is also obsessed with wiping out the Jews, and with destroying the fabric of Western democracy. So why would Russian Hitler want to let American Hitler and his goons thwart the ascendancy of British Hitler, who, in addition to wanting to wipe out all the Jews, also wants to destroy democracy by fascistically refunding the NHS, renationalizing the rail system, and so on?

It doesn't make a whole lot of sense, does it? In any event, here's the official story.

Iran Builds New Oil Terminal At Chabahar Port To Better Trade Crude With India, Others
The Iranian oil industry has constructed a new terminal at the country's southeastern port of Chabahar to meet rising crude export capacity, and to better serve markets in India and central Asia.

Chabahar along the Gulf of Oman is the closest and best access point of Iran to the Indian Ocean and Iran has devised serious plans to turn it into a transit hub for immediate access to markets in the northern part of the Indian Ocean and Central Asia.

The Chabahar Agreement is a regional transport network initiative of the governments of Afghanistan, India, and Iran. India will be handling much of the construction and management at the new facilities: under the agreement signed between India and Iran, India is to equip and operate two berths in Chabahar Port Phase-I with capital investment of USD 85.21 million and annual revenue expenditure of USD 22.95 million on a 10-year lease.

This new port and transit corridor erves as a key lifeline for Iran under US sanctions (more of which were just approved today by the administration). It could also potentially open the way for millions of dollars in trade for Afghanistan thus cutting its dependence on Pakistan's port of Gwadar, located 166 km (103 miles) to the east.

Washington (AFP)

President Donald Trump on Monday told other countries to protect their own Gulf oil shipments, declaring that the United States has only limited strategic interest in the "dangerous" region.

In a pair of tweets, Trump said US aims regarding Iran boil down to "No Nuclear Weapons and No Further Sponsoring of Terror."

As for Iran's threats to shut sea lanes used to transport a large portion of the world's oil exports through the Persian Gulf, Washington is not concerned, Trump said.

Stating that the United States is now the world's biggest energy producer, thereby weaning itself off decades of dependence on Middle Eastern oil, Trump said "we don't even need to be there."

And the US military should not be depended upon to keep the narrow sea routes along Iran's coast free.

"Why are we protecting the shipping lanes for other countries (many years) for zero compensation," he asked. "All of these countries should be protecting their own ships on what has always been a dangerous journey."

Iran–Saudi Arabia Proxy Conflict
The Iran-Saudi Arabia proxy conflict, sometimes also referred to as the Iran-Saudi Arabia Cold War, Middle East Cold War or Middle East Conflict, is the ongoing struggle for influence in the Middle East and surrounding regions between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The two countries have provided varying degrees of support to opposing sides in nearby conflicts, including the civil wars in Syria, Yemen, and Iraq. The rivalry also extends to disputes in Bahrain, Lebanon, Qatar, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Morocco, as well as broader competition in North and East Africa, parts of South Asia, Central Asia, and the Caucasus.

In what has been described as a cold war, the conflict is waged on multiple levels over geopolitical, economic, and sectarian influence in pursuit of regional hegemony. American support for Saudi Arabia and its allies as well as Russian and Chinese support for Iran and its allies have drawn comparisons to the dynamics of the Cold War era, and the proxy conflict has been characterized as a front in what Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has referred to as the "New Cold War".

22 June 2019: Trump Response To Question RE: Warmonger, NS Advisor John Bolton / Iran
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyHBxGXfMO4

On the way to Camp David today the president stopped to answer questions from the press about current events, Iran and other topics.

He was asked about policymaking input from his advisors including John Bolton. He was also asked the decision to hold back on air strikes in response to Iran's shoot-down  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2019/06/437575.shtml of a U.S. military drone, and in response proceeded to explain that (among other moral and ethical considerations "How many people will die?" / "I don't want to kill a hundred-and-fifty Iranians." / "I don't want to kill a hundred-and-fifty of anything or anybody.") his personal affiliation with Iranian Americans in New York contributed to the pause and consideration given to that decision.


at 4:00 in to the linked YouTube video, a reporter asks Donald Trump —

"Mr. President, your National Security Advisor came under some harsh criticism [ *SEE -->  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2019/06/437560.shtml#461562 ] for pushing too hard on Iran.

China Buying Iranian LPG Despite Sanctions
Energy
June 21, 2019 17:04

After being hit by the trade war and US sanctions on Iran, some Chinese buyers of liquefied petroleum gas from the Persian Gulf nation are finding it is too tough a habit to kick.

China sourced around a fifth of its LPG -- used as cooking fuel, in cigarette lighters and to make plastic -- from the US before Beijing slapped a 25% tariff on the gas last August as the trade tussle heated up, Bloomberg reported.

Buyers then turned to Iran, which accounted for around a third of imports in April, before US President Donald Trump blocked all energy exports from the country in May.

But some Chinese customers are still buying from Iran, according to Kpler SAS. Based on ship-tracking data, the Paris-based data intelligence firm estimates that at least five supertankers loaded Iranian LPG in May and June that was destined for China. That would equate to around $100 million of gas.

"They have started using a variety of techniques to hide their activity," Ilya Niklyaev, an LPG analyst at Kpler, said. "Like switching off transponders as well as intentionally signaling wrong destinations and indicating loading ports in Qatar, Saudi Arabia or the UAE."

20 June 2019: Iran Shoots Down U.S. Military Drone Over Persian Gulf
A United States military unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV aka 'drone') has been shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile (SAM) over the Persian Gulf.

Iran has claimed that the drone was flying over Iranian territorial waters, but the Pentagon has released a map showing the full flight path of the Navy-operated drone along with its point of destruction. Iran claims that during a 'second pass' of its flight, the drone violated their territorial airspace and waters where they engaged it with the SAM battery.

The unmanned aircraft shot down was a version of the Northrop Grumman RQ-4 designated BAMS-D (Broad Area Maritime Surveillance-Demonstrator) — this is a pre-production test series of only 4 vehicles, built since 2012, for medium- and high-altitude ocean surveillance by the United States Navy. (The fully operational, production version of the BAMS drone is called the MQ-4C Triton; these aircraft have begun production but are not scheduled to be deployed by the Navy in this area until later this year.)

From Naval Support Activity Bahrain, Task Force 57 provides airborne maritime patrol and reconnaissance using BAMS drones and other assets throughout the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations including the Arabian Gulf, Gulf of Oman, Red Sea and parts of the Indian Ocean.

India (Iran's second largest petroleum customer after China) has deployed some of its naval vessels and maritime surveillance aircraft to the Gulf region in response to the latest actions.

Society Is In Decay: When The Worst Is First And The Best IsLast
May 31st, 2019

Plutocrats like to control the range of permissible public dialogue. Plutocrats also like to shape what society values. If you want to see where a country's priorities lie, look at how it allocates its money. While teachers and nurses earn comparatively little for performing critical jobs, corporate bosses including those who pollute our planet and bankrupt defenseless families, make millions more. Wells Fargo executives are cases in point. The vastly overpaid CEO of General Electric left his teetering company in shambles. In 2019, Boeing's CEO got a bonus (despite the Lion Air Flight 610 737 Max 8 crash in 2018). Just days before a second deadly 737 Max 8 crash in Ethiopia.

This disparity is on full display in my profession. Public interest lawyers and public defenders, who fight daily for a more just and lawful society, are paid modest salaries. On the other hand, the most well compensated lawyers are corporate lawyers who regularly aid and abet corporate crime, fraud, and abuse. Many corporate lawyers line their pockets by shielding the powerful violators from accountability under the rule of law.
