Gewindeberg Wraps Up Reparation Symposium
On the West African island of Fernando Boop, this Sunday the Internationalist Symposium on Post-War Reparation wrapped up with a steep diagnosis using a term the American dissident Chomsky once in the early days of the war cherry-picked from a „Project New American Century" arms market investor mood massaging bulletin: In a keynote speech on the status of the mission - forcing the imperialist and fascist powers stuck on their historical aberration of electronic spying into unconditional surrender, the renowned Abolitionist health teacher J. Gewindeberg said the military expansionism of the Obama regime had brought "the Great Art of Taking" to a culmination. First he had taken Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Ukraine and the like, then he had taken his political-military fiasco in the battle for Damascus and beyond, and now he is taking gaffes to a new dimension.

Growing Inequality Harms the Political Economy
Neoliberalism and finance market capitalism encourage creating money out of thin air, exploding inequality, precarious work, and environmental destruction. New policies, assumptions, and priorities are necessary to combat inequality. While productivity increased, wages have stagnated and average workers earn less than in the 1970s. Wages are not only a cost factor but an important demand factor leading to either investment or social blight.

9/11 Tower 7 - A Firefighter's Analysis
Let's first define why this is so important. In terms of political history, this is probably the most important building collapse ever to have occurred; not just from an architectural perspective, not only because it raises very significant questions about the safety of high-rise occupiers and their rescuers should a similar building be involved in fire but because of what it represents in terms of what happened geopolitically and militarily as a result of its collapse. However, the primary purpose of this assessment is to establish what level of risk the report of this collapse identifies for Firefighters.

Meet The Press Grills WikiLeaks On Source, Ignores Substance Of DNC Emails
On Sunday morning, Meet the Press host Chuck Todd (7/31/16) had on WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to discuss his recent leaking of 20,000 emails from within the Democratic National Committee showing an institutional preference in favor of Hillary Clinton. Todd asked Assange a total of eight questions, all of which were about alleged foreign hacking of the DNC, never asking about the substance of the leaks.

Here are the questions in order:

"Are you concerned that if foreign government uses your entity that you have now seen WikiLeaks get weaponized?"
"The easiest way to clear this up, Mr. Assange, would you be able to say categorically that a foreign government did not hand you this material?"
"But it is helpful to know if a foreign government is involved, isn't that crucial information to civilians?"
"Mr. Assange, you say you can't go around speculating. Do you not know [if Russia leaked the documents to you]?"
"Let me ask you this. Do you, without revealing your source on this, do you accept information and leaked documents from foreign governments?"
"But isn't the right of the public to know the motive also, to know the motive of the maker?"
"Does that not trouble you at all, if a foreign government is trying to meddle in the affairs of another foreign government?"
"That doesn't bother you [foreign governments meddling in US elections]? That is not part of the WikiLeaks credo?"

Lake Oswego Pastor Busted For Illegal Transfer Of Rifle Purchased To Destroy In 'Protest'
[ Perfection! Anti-gunner attempts anti-gun "demonstration" and is foiled by Oregon's brand-new 2015 anti-gun 'private sale law. ]

Jeremy Lucas, the Lake Oswego reverend who made national news last week when he announced that he would destroy an AR-15 he won in a raffle, may have run afoul of the law when he gave the gun to a parishioner for safe keeping without performing a background check.

Whether or not Lucas will be prosecuted remains to be seen, according to a spokesman for the Oregon State Police, who are looking into the case.

2 weeks ago, Lucas saw that a girls softball league was holding a raffle to sponsor the team's travel to a tournament in California. The grand prize: an AR-15 rifle.

Using $3,000 of discretionary funds from the church, he bought as many raffle tickets as he could in the hopes of winning the rifle, which he did.

The brouhaha started when Lucas announced his plans to destroy the rifle. After garnering plenty of local press, the Washington Post picked up the story and Lucas told the paper he had picked up the rifle from a gun store, but had left the rifle at the home of a "responsible gun owner" who offered to keep the weapon locked in a gun safe.

The only problem?

As of May 11, 2015 in the State of Oregon, any transfer of a firearm, even between private parties when no money changes hands, requires a full background check.

Pittsburgh: Clinton Supporter Lights Flag On Fire, Attacks Trump Supporter
Flag burning:
an exceedingly effective method of protest within the '2 party' system, and of gaining reputable, positive attention for both oneself and one's "movement" / beliefs / agenda(s)

____________________


Police say that a Clinton supporter lit a flag on fire near a group of Trump supporters and attacked a man near the Clinton-Kaine event downtown Saturday afternoon.

The incident happened at the intersection of 10th Street and Penn Avenue around 4 p.m.

According to a criminal complaint, police were told Joshua Sturman was in the area to support Hillary Clinton, who spoke at a rally at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center later that afternoon. A group of Trump supporters had gathered on the opposing sidewalk in what police say was a peaceful assembly.

Is the Popular Vote In Elections Nothing More Than 'Mob Rule'?
Friday Jan 25, 2013 · 3:47 PM PDT

WHY NOT REVERT TO THE CONSTITUTIONAL THREE/FIFTHS RULE IN ASSIGNING ELECTORAL VOTES FOR PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS?

In the past few days there has been a great deal written about the Electoral College and whether some Republican efforts to change certain Blue States methods of assigning their Electoral Votes are cheating and stealing elections. Some GOP members are now referring the nation's changing demographics and to their emerging minority party status as being nothing more than being subjected to Mob Rule.

With the national GOP's blessing states like Pennsylvania, Florida, Virginia, Ohio and other blue states are considering assigning their state's EVs according to congressional district elections. Some say this is nothing more than an effort to cheat the popular vote.

In the spirit of snark, we should not be we be surprised if we soon hear that the GOP proposes a compromise in a bipartisan spirit.

Given the 'peculiar' nature of our presidential voting system, the GOP might propose that we adopt the following rule that combines the best of both approaches of the Popular Vote method and more traditional Constitutional Method that would warm a Founding Father's heart:

Donald Trump Could Be The Military-Industrial Complex's Worst Nightmare
Trump came to Washington in March 2016 and dropped a peace bomb on the neocon editorial writers at The Washington Post and the war lobby. Trump wants to get the United States out of fighting other people's wars. He thinks maybe NATO has outlived its usefulness. He asks why Americans are still paying for South Korea's national defense. Or Germany's or Saudi Arabia's.

This Trump talk is definitely career-threatening for the military-industrial complex. It was particularly playful of Trump to choose The Washington Post as the place to drop his bomb; after all, it's the Post that has made itself such a righteous preacher for endless war-making.

FOR SALE - Elliott State Forest for $220.8 million.
This week, we [OLCV] learned that the Stand Land Board will sell the Elliott State Forest for $220.8 million.

The Elliott State Forest is a special place. Nestled in the foothills between the Coast and Coast Range near Port Orford, the Elliott contains some of the best habitat for wildlife of all kinds - including endangered species like Coho salmon and marbled murrelet. It is so remote that it does not contain a single sanctioned hiking trail. And perhaps most importantly, it is owned by us - you and me - as part of Oregon's rich heritage of public lands.

Psychologist Discusses Establishment Election Circus
Psychologist Discusses Establishment Election Circus There's a theory that when it comes to social ideas colliding with economic interests, there are only two kinds of people: These who live their ideas, except when economic interests are attempting to pimp them, and these who have their ideas pimped, except when they come to live independent of economic interests. There's a theory about the theory which says this is exactly the description of the Sanders-Clinton voter fault line. While on the right it mostly is inherited configurations involved in the collision, that is a fitting general description of the happenings in the DEPOTUS. The hitherto nominee is of the second kind, with regard to the voter profile. It attracts voters who have more social ideas than inherited configurations, but it pimps these, in contrast to the minority candidate crowd which shares the common interest not to get pimped by corporations. The typical Clinton voter by carelessness is very very aware that there is an equality gap to be closed, but equally stubborn unaware that a horse race mentality is as insufficient a fix as any conservative treatment.

Chris Hedges, Robert Reich Agree That USA 3rd Party Is Needed
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jr4cXH3Fil8

this is an excellent joint interview with former investigative journalist Chris Hedges and former U.S. cabinet member and long-time Hillary Clinton associate Robert Reich (who supported the Sanders campaign).

Hedges' devastating opening broadside remarks are partly excerpted below, from the text transcript. He notes the system of (Sheldon Wolin's) Inverted Totalitarianism we exist within, and the current state of U.S. elections and government. Also the sidestepping / "Russian conspiracy" distractive response to WikiLeaks by DNC and corporate mass media.

But the interview is of value also for the comments and observations of Robert Reich. And his views about the 'future of left movements' in contrast to those of Hedges.

He agrees multiple times, with Chris Hedges that a third party is going to be necessary in the United States if any 'progress' is ever to be made within the corporate capitalist plutocracy, or if it is ever to be 'overturned' or supplanted.

The "Independent" Police Review Division (IPR) released its 2015 annual report 4 months earlier than last year, though the July 21 publication date was still later than requested by the US Department of Justice (DOJ) in a 2014 memo. Portland Copwatch (PCW) analyzed the 25 page document and found that despite some improved graphics, the report contains even less information than the skimpy 2014 report, and as of press time the Auditor's office, which houses IPR, has not released data tables supporting the information that was included.

Munich Killer Was Bullied Teenage Loner Who Had Obsession With Mass Murder
The attacker, named as Ali Sonboly, was the son of Iranian refugees who came to Germany in the 1990s. Neighbours said he was shy and withdrawn and showed no signs of the violence that had apparently preoccupied him long before Friday night. A police search of the gunman's family home, part of a social housing block in the prosperous Maxvorstadt district, found newspaper clippings and books related to mass murders, among them one called Why Kids Kill: Inside the Minds of School Shooters.

Security forces are trying to trace the Glock semi-automatic pistol used by Sonboly, who probably bought it through the black market as he did not have a licence, and initial reports say the gun had its serial number erased and may once have been deactivated.

Remember this, next time the psychological profile / personal history details of a reported "mass shooter" are kept vague (or otherwise emphasize alternate aspects of the shooter's personality/acquaintances/group associations).

In this instance, he had a bedroom full of books about mass shootings. And was obsessed with the 2011 Norway murderer, Anders Breivik.

Are You A Statist? V2.0 : Malheur Refuge, Baton Rouge
so as one or two (??) readers may or not have noticed, the PDX IMC workers / editors — whose overall efforts for this site I respect and appreciate btw — recently decided that the 'Are You A Statist?' quiz  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2016/07/432740.shtml

was not worthy of primary Newswire placement but rather needed composting  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2016/07/432772.shtml

But as it turns out, the initial quiz topic was and remains a timely one.

Why?

Because as y'all also may remember, earlier this year a bunch of white separatists decided to take hostage a Federally administered wildlife refuge here in Oregon. Anyone who saw the several Newswire articles concerning that event months ago, will recall the comments (by unknown users..... some, naturally may ?? possibly have been professional trolls) strongly and enthusiastically urging U.S. government forces to blast them out by any means necessary (and tout de suite), which eventually did happen.

Now though, we have the Baton Rouge police assassin  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2016/07/432802.shtml who (among his other activities), as it turns out is a member of a Black nationalist sovereign group The Washitaw Nation :

African American Ex-USMC Baton Rouge Cop Assassin: "Revenue And Blood"
An ex-Marine has been identified as the gunman who killed three police officers and wounded three others in Baton Rouge. Gavin Eugene Long opened fire on officers Sunday morning in Louisiana on his 29th birthday, just days after posting videos online saying people needed to "fight back" after recent killings of black men by police in Minnesota and Baton Rouge, police sources told multiple news outlets, NBC News. He used the name Cosmo Setepenra online and as his pen name for his self-published books. He discussed the Dallas attack on police officers and recent police shootings of black men in social media posts.

"Violence is not THE answer (its a answer), but at what point do you stand up so that your people dont become the Native Americans... EXTINCT?," he wrote on Twitter on July 13.

Long went to Dallas after the attack on police officers on July 7, 2016, according to a video he posted to Youtube on July 10. He was there to give out his self-published books and claimed the trip had been planned before the attack on police. But from his hotel room, he commented about how he thought people should react to police brutality.

"One hundred percent of revolutions, of victims fighting their oppressors, from victims fighting their bullies, 100 percent have been successful through fighting back, through bloodshed. Zero have been successful just over protesting. It has never worked and it never will. You gotta fight back, that's the only way a bully knows to quit, he doesn't know words," he said in the video. "He can't understand words, I promise you. He doesn't understand protests. If y'all want to keep protesting, do that. But for the serious ones, for the real ones, the alpha ones, we know what's it's going to take. It's only fighting back or money, that's all they care about. Revenue and blood, revenue and blood, revenue and blood, nothing else. Don't even think about it."

Police say the officer bit into the sandwich and felt what was a grisly texture as well as a crunching sound. When he looked into the sandwich, he saw the glass. When he checked his mouth, he saw it was bleeding.

and this  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2016/07/432730.shtml (well worth reading, btw) deeper analysis,

it seems that so-called Leftism (after at least 15-20 years of post-911 corporate capitalist plutocracy going full bore, 8 years of it occurring under drone-happy African American president Obama) is in a major ideological crisis.

primarily because it is going absolutely nowhere. (Neither is Rightist ideology btw. Just look at the WNs, Lol. what a pathetic joke Not to mention the GOP but how can you Trump that?) The only thing ideologically going forward today, in human culture on Earth is corporate capitalist plutocracy. THAT, my friends is having fire sale success.

Today though we're going to ask an important epistemological and strategic question, for the future of Leftism and its struggle (however, and for whatever specific cause(s) that might ? be pegged or defined).

at their essential core, is a Leftist (whatever wing you choose radical / progressive; you select the degree) typically a Pragmatist or an Ideologue?

or, are they neither / something else entirely?

San Francisco Police Disproportionately Search African-Americans
African-Americans in San Francisco are stopped and searched by police officers in disproportionate numbers and are subject to a host of other actions that appear to be discriminatory, according to a report issued on Monday that found the Police Department was in need of significant overhaul. The report also said that the department's disciplinary system was riddled with shortcomings.

San Francisco's police force has been shaken by a series of scandals over the past two years, including racist and homophobic text messages exchanged by officers, cellphone videos of officers abusing residents, and questionable shootings of Latinos and African-Americans — including the fatal shooting in May of an unarmed black woman.

Gregory P. Suhr, the police chief, resigned under pressure in May, and the department is undergoing a review by the Justice Department's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. That review is separate from the city analysis released Monday.

The report, by the Blue Ribbon Panel on Transparency, Accountability and Fairness in Law Enforcement, found that while African-Americans make up 5.8 percent of the city's residents, they constituted about 40 percent, 20 of 51, of the victims of officer-involved shootings from January 2010 through July 2015. (The study noted that no race was listed for suspects in 18 of the 69 total shootings during that period).

The study also found evidence of racial disparities in the rate of police stops and searches of African-Americans, even though officers were far less likely to find guns, drugs or other contraband on blacks.

"Nationally, people would be surprised by this because we are such a wealthy and diverse city," said Joi Jackson-Morgan, the executive director of the 3rd Street Youth Center and Clinic in Bayview-Hunters Point, a mostly African-American part of the city. "But there's an explicit bias that directly impacts my community."
