'Leslie Cagan, the national coordinator for United for Peace and Justice, a coalition of more than 1,000 antiwar groups, said she was particularly concerned that the F.B.I.'s counterterrorism division was discussing the coalition's operations. "We always assumed the F.B.I. was monitoring us, but to see the counterterrorism people looking at us like this is pretty jarring," she said.'

Every revolution requires a sustained offensive, and so I guess I will just keep at it, by writing a column from time to time (with the initials BKH just to let any one know who might be interested in some comedy relief from time to time - right now I am not feeling to funny because of the Africa famine, but given how that is going to be the ruin of some people, even that could become funny given time)

There really is nothing more amusing than members of the mainstream U.S. press getting on their high horses about the state of journalism in other countries. A classic case in point is the article written by Gary Marx of the Chicago Tribune on the new Latin American satellite channel, Telesur.
For years, the US Forest Service has been working hand in hand with the American Recreation Council in order to convert our national lands into commodities to be privatized for commercial exploitation, specifically with the motorized abuse of lands in mind. They have successfully engineered getting the federal budgets reduced for maintenance of trails and other natural, quiet and undestructive land use and now are exploiting the lack of funds for an excuse to continue converting public lands for motorized and other commercially-oriented, non-reflective exploitation. "Managed Recreation" is their Orwellian speak for such land abuse.
There will be a Sept. 24 anti-war demonstration in Seattle, in conjunction with the national anti-war demonstrations called by the ANSWER Coalition for Washington DC, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Genocide is the ultimate crime against humanity. And a government-backed genocide is unfolding in the Darfur region of the Sudan. As the horror in Darfur continues, our major television news networks are largely missing in action.
I was riding home from work the other day and was waiting at an intersection for the light to turn from red to green when I heard a woman's voice directed at me from inside the car to my left. "You really should be wearing a helmet, you know." I looked at her, nodded and looked away, hoping that would be the end of it. It wasn't. She went on for the durration of the red light to lecture me on the pros of bike helmets, asking me if i had one, telling me i should be wearing it etc... What bothers me about this situation is not the woman's desire
"What caused this development? How could an economic systembe built where ever-larger parts of the population are excluded from sharing in growth?.. In neoliberalism, the person is not regarded as a person but downgraded to mere labor power.."

None other than Michael Ledeen writes (with London as a backdrop) that "appeasement of Islamic terrorists" has seeped into American culture (i.e., departing from the Zionist explanation of current events is nothing less than "appeasement"). "This sickness is certainly not limited to Great Britain," writes the universal fascist Ledeen in the National Review http://www.nationalreview.com/ledeen/ledeen200507130823.asp "we find it here as well, in such personages as Pat Buchanan and Juan Cole, along with their acolytes.
Violent repression of democracy has a new face in Haiti: the "Blue Helmets" of the United Nations multi-nation "stabilization" force in Haiti which goes by the acronym MINUSTAH. The UN mission took over "stabilization" responsibilities in June 2004 from the US-led forces which were deployed to Haiti since before the coup which overthrew President Jean Bertrand Aristide on February 29, 2004. Their operations since last year have acted to support the unconstitutional coup government of Prime Minister Gerard Latortue, principally by supporting the increasingly repressive Haitian National Police in their efforts to root out, imprison, murder and terrify the leadership and support base of the widely-popular political party Fanmi Lavalas.
"The article, by Seymour Hersh, reports that the administration proceeded with the covert plan over the congressional objections."

It is commonly thought than Gianfranco Sanguinetti -- the author of "On Terrorism and the State" (1978) -- also wrote "Il Reichstag Brucia?" ("Is the Reichstag Burning?" 1969), which is a classic situationist denunciation of terrorism executed by the State (in this case, the secret services of Italy). But recently translated materials (see below) indicate that the tract's real author were other situationists: Eduardo Rothe and Paul Cesoni.
i am wondering if i could get some opinions on Portland Impact....
Carnivore was the third generation of online-detection software used by the FBI. While information about the first version has never been disclosed, many believe that it was actually a readily available commercial program called Etherpeek.
the thought police need to give it a rest
The CIA's covert wing is not in the business of advancing world peace and general prosperity. The record of 60 years is one of uninterrupted evil. So we should drop all this nonsense about treason and clap Rove warmly on the back for his courageous onslaughts on the cult of secrecy.
Information for those that still cling in desparation to the hope 911 may actually been terrorist from the East.
For many progressives and liberals, the question becomes down to one word; Why? Why can't there be equal justice, why can't there be an adequate minimum wage law. Why can't we have a government that acts truly for the people and by the people. The truth I believe is simple; progressives need to go to Washington D.C and for so long progressives really didn't. The article that I am posting is from my column at 411mania.com. I do not get paid for my writings, but since this article has to deal with the Heritage foundation, I figured I would repost it here. I feel that the Heritage foundation is a chief tributary in the river of conservative misinformation. This is my article, the common thread; thanks for your attention.
How much will they be able to get away with, that is the question? Who is going to scare who?

In an exciting new chapter of the campaign to save the Wild Siskiyou, forest activists announced today the construction of a bold and elaborate infrastructure of resistance at the Hobson old growth reserve timber sale in the Biscuit Fire area. Southern Oregon forest defenders are calling on all allies to support these actions in whatever ways they can.
An impressive log cabin fortress now stands on the single road leading to this remote North Kalmiopsis timber sale, sealing off vehicle access to an area now referred to by many as the "Siskiyou Free State." In addition, an unusual new form of tree sit has been established in one of the units of the sale that connects many trees together across multiple acres in a rope-work network that suspends an activist in midair while preventing any trees from being felled in the area.

Amid the scandal over who leaked the name of Joseph Wilson's CIA covert operations wife to Karl Rove and other White House officials, there is renewed focus on a June 10, 2003 State Department memo that recapped Ambassador Joseph Wilson's trip to Niger to check on deceitful "intelligence" on that nation's uranium export controls. The State Department memo was written by the State Department based on the notes of a State analyst who attended a multi-agency intelligence meeting in early 2002 to investigate alleged Iraqi uranium purchases in Africa, including Niger. The memo reportedly contained the name of Wilson's wife. In a significant development, The New York Times is reporting today that the memo was written by Marc Grossman, the Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs and a copy of it was requested by Secretary of State Colin Powell before he left for Africa with President Bush on the evening of July 6, 2003.
Gridlock. It does not just apply to activity inside the beltway of our Nations capitol. It hobbles to Oregon state government too—especially now that Legislative action is plagued by what seems like an endless series of three day adjournments.
Jacqueline Dingfelder Represents North east Portland. She appeared on K-BOO's morning talk radio call-in program Voices From The Edge with hosts Alan Graf and former State Representative JoAnne Bowman.
Dingfelder spoke and answered questions about Gridlock in Salem, the numerous bills already passed overwhelmingly by the State Senate that the house will not even discuss, and what citizens can do to expedite matters. K-BOO's Glen Owen edited these highlights from this week's edition of Voices From The Edge. (news bulletin never broadcast)

Haitian 'Massacre' Caught on Film
UN sanctions in Iraq made massacres like MyLai, Vietnam unnecessary. At least one half million children had already been killed as a result of UN sanctions, before the 2003 US military invasion of Iraq.
Hundreds of thousands of Shiites, Kurds and freedom fighters were slaughtered by Iraq forces immediately after OPeration Desert Storm. This was similar to the 1944 Warsaw Uprising. Nazis massacred resistance forces who were also upposed to Stalinist domination.
A report by economist Kathrine Bradbury of the Boston Federal Reserve Bank suggests unemployment is much higher than Labor Dept statistics report, due to lack of rebound in labor force participation. This would help explain why real wage growth is stagnate, though we are supposed to be at "full employment" (i.e. 95%).
American complacency is at an all time high. Despite some effort, our civil liberties are constantly being stripped away... all in the name of "National Security". Before it is too late, we need to take a stand. A real stand.
