Two Las Vegas police officers were killed Sunday in what appears to be a politically motivated ambush in a pizza restaurant that spilled over to a nearby Wal-Mart, where the two shooters committed suicide after killing a woman in the store.
Details are sketchy but Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department sources close to the investigation say the shooters shouted that "this is the start of a revolution" before opening fire on the officers, and draped their bodies with cloth showing a Revolutionary War-era flag. Investigators have also found paraphernalia associated with white supremacists.
Sunday night Metro homicide investigators and FBI agents cordoned off and were searching a small apartment complex at 110 S. Bruce St., about four miles from the shooting scene. A resident of the complex said he had spoken with a man who lived in the apartment being searched. He said the man appeared "militant," and often talked about conspiracy theories.
An explosion was heard at the apartment complex at about 9:30 p.m., but no information was immediately available.
Barriers are political, not economic. Humans can revise the tax code. Our tax system encourages the 1%. If you're not creating jobs here, you'll have a high tax. Median income is lower than a quarter of a century ago. All the growth has gone to the top. We no longer have a country with opportunity. Policies and politics have shaped our economy in unconscionable ways.
A building in Barcelona, squatted for seventeen years, was recently attacked, evicted and partially demolished by police in late May. Four days of demonstrations, riots, and targeted direct actions throughout Spain and around Europe ensued. The people rose up and the city government gave up the eviction and destruction of the Can Vies squat.
Although he's been criticized as feckless and deemed less hawkish than Secretary Clinton, President Obama's newly-proposed Counterterrorism Partnership Fund (CTPF) is the logical extension of the Clinton-Gates Global Security Contingency Fund and epitomizes the Whole-of-Government shift.

For many years eviction attorney Charles Ramsey has made a comfortable living for himself by threatening low-income tenants with eviction or sanctions, and evicting the poor, elderly, and disabled from their housing has become a way of life for Ramsey!

The Albina Ministerial Alliance Coalition for Justice and Police Reform (AMAC)
strongly condemns the City of Portland's refusal to agree to annual status
hearings on the Settlement Agreement with the United States Department of
Justice (DOJ). The Court has indicated that, absent such hearings the Court
will reject the Agreement. The City's refusal to participate in the proposed
annual hearings -- in which the Court's authority is limited to receiving
information and merely asking questions of the parties -- is unjustified, and
is a clear rejection of the Court's continued authority over this case.

In his new book "Political Myths and Elite Misanthropy," professor Herbert Schui explains the myth of the achiever, the myth of state indebtedness, the myths of the market and competition and the myth of market-conforming democracy. Clinton used New Testament themes like "new covenant" and created demeaning workfare and the activating state while encouraging speculation.
The GE Loophole isn't just unfair to small businesses; it's a burden to us all. If the loophole is renewed, it will cost $62 billion over the next decade. That's money we won't have to fix roads, build schools, or find medical cures—the kinds of investments that strengthen our communities and boost small business.
Four days of demonstrations, riots, and targeted direct actions throughout Spain and around Europe after the Barcelona Squat "Can Vies" was initially attacked by police and partially destroyed have resulted in capitulation of the city government. The "Can Vies" Squat will no longer be evicted, and volunteers from the community are today helping rebuild amid the burnt-out hull of wrecking equipment still located on the property (see photos).
Wall Street runs right through Nebraska! This guy comes right out of absolutely nowhere, just like Barack Obama. He's supported by all the giant "think tanks" like American Enterprise Institute. But we will never know who he is. (Until he starts delivering $2 million dollar speeches like Ronald Reagan.)
Fake terrorism is good for business.
Since WWI, our government has been walking hand in hand with banksters and war mongers, because war is the most efficient manner in which to transfer the wealth of the citizenry to the banks and the already rich. WE, THE PEOPLE, CAN REPUDIATE THIS DEBT AS "ODIOUS" UNDER A NUMBER OF LONG-STANDING LEGAL PRINCIPLES. For example, we are under no obligation to pay for the NSA which is being used to repress us. That's right. Read this article and learn.

Blaming primarily people in the CIA and the military for egregious torture and murder doesn't recognize these acts fall within this far broader set of corrupted cultural realities (even as we realize the very egregious nature to this globally expanded clandestine archipelago of secret prisons and hundreds if not thousands of renditions). And yet a lot of this stuff should be pegged to the many political figures and pundits who are not employees of CIA or the Pentagon, but because of a great deal of government and media deceit became the prime movers in getting our country involved in illegal wars.

Argentina filed its final Supreme Court response to hedge fund NML Capital urging the high court to take the case that the Financial Times calls "the debt trial of the century." Jubilee USA filed an Amicus Curiae brief in March noting that the precedent in the case will impact debt restructurings, poor country access to credit and debt relief programs designed to help people living in extreme poverty. The US government and the International Monetary Fund support Argentina. On June 12th, the Supreme Court is scheduled to discuss whether or not it will hear the case.

Democracy is the most popular word in the vocabulary of politics but also the most brazenly abused.

The autonomous center KTS in Freiburg, in southern Germany, is celebrating its 20th Birthday from May 28th until June 8th! Founded in 1994 and after many attempts to destroy and evict it by the CDU (conservative) and later Green Party city governments, the KTS continues to thrive and represent an important part of emancipatory activism in northern Europe.

What lessons were learned from Vietnam, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Iraq and Afghanistan? Can countries become incapable of learning?

Can the US empire become a republic?

Counter-Intelligence is a 5 part series that explores in-depth the vast, sprawling and secret National Security State which operates throughout the United States and around the world.
The series examines the foundations of the Military-Industrial-Intelligence Complex, charting it through myriad global consequences where secret intelligence organizations continue to hijack governments, manipulate elections and commit crimes, all under the cloak of "National Security".
In the wake of continued revelations regarding NSA's PRISM and other programs, this series provides a solid historical context to the workings of the rapacious and ever-expanding National Security State.

David Chandler, ASU 2/18/2014: Guest Lecture at Arizona State University by invitation of 9/11 Studies and Outreach, a student group affiliated with Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.
Introduction by Rick Fowlkes, structural engineer.
The talk was followed by extensive Q & A.
The technical approach often ignores political realities and normative rights of the poor. Principles are engines of social rights. First, agreement on principles and then operationalization of the principles. Freedom or autocracy is the bigger discussion on development. We are winning this battle.
When the Albuquerque Police Department (APD) and other law enforcement agencies cracked down on protestors March 30, 2014, the city's finest rolled out a military-style force.
Chanting "No Justice, No Peace," the revved-up marchers were protesting the March 16 shooting death of homeless camper James Boyd, a man with mental health problems, and more than a dozen other men since 2010, many of whom also reportedly suffered from mental illness.
As the evening progressed, the police reacted in front of the University of New Mexico (UNM). Equipped with gas masks, body armor, batons and automatic rifles, they deployed officers on horseback, a SWAT Team and a pair of armored vehicles. After confronting shouting protestors, the APD released tear gas, which seeped into campus dormitories.
March 30 wasn't the first time that local cops forcibly broke up a militant if largely peaceful demonstration. In October 2011, police dismantled the local manifestation of Occupy Wall Street, while in March 2003, APD cops mounted on horseback charged at anti-Iraq war protestors and fired tear gas that drifted across a UNM-area neighborhood and into homes.
Increased U.S. interest in continental defense continues to have an impact on Canadian and Mexican security policy. Under the guise of stopping drug and illicit arms trafficking, the U.S. seeks to further extend its military and security apparatus into other regions.
You are invited to the 2nd Annual Resistance Ecology Conference in Portland, Oregon! The conference is booked at Portland State University for the weekend of June 27-29, 2014. We are now well into planning the weekend in collaboration with Student Animal Liberation Coalition.

We are accepting workshop proposals on a wide range of topics and skill-sets.
Russia can only be said to be an "aggressive" and "imperial" power so long as one accepts the unrelenting hypocrisy of U.S. and Western leaders. After all, it was not Russia that invaded and occupied Afghanistan and Iraq, killing millions.
A city-wide alert on ambiguous grounds
Almost overnight China is besieged by seemingly endless terror attacks, but no one ever takes any credit. No one gets any personal blame either. Meanwhile all of the country's law enforcement agencies are armed to the teeth and patrolling in gangs, gripping baseball bats and imposing what looks like a new police state. Shades of 911?
On May 23rd of last year, President Obama again promised to close the detention facility at Guantánamo. In Portland, Amnesty International USA Group 48 is working with Veterans For Peace and closegitmo.net to host a rally in downtown Portland at Director Park at 12pm, May 23rd, 2014.
