WASHINGTON, May 24 (IPS) - Iran offered in 2003 to accept peace with Israel and to cut off material assistance to Palestinian armed groups and pressure them to halt terrorist attacks within Israel's 1967 borders, according to the secret Iranian proposal to the United States.

Without capitalism, we could not live but we can hardly survive with it. Shifting social costs is the real core of capitalism.. Politics is powerless toward the economy.. Governments are constantly forced to weigh the necessary control of capital against positional deterioriation.
Following the money leads to the terrorists that attacked America.
VICE President Dick Cheney's actions as CEO of Halliburton are as fraudulent as now convicted Lay of Enron.
With inside knowledge that his purchase of Dresser would devalue Halliburton stock because Dresser had liability of Asbestos, he sold it before the public knew, made a huge profit and depreciated thousands of pension plans.

From the opening strains, the floor is vibrating. Actors run up and down unseen stairs, swiftly and deftly changing from costumed character to character costume in ironic near-complete-secrecy and willing-openness. It is this "in your face" (literally) opening which sets the stage (again literally) for Radiant Theatre's newest rock opera "The Who's Tommy" which literally ROCKS.
While the forces of the traditional 'left' argue and analyse themselves into irrelevance (out of existence) the expedient right rumbles forward like a juggernaut. The left has been overwhelmed by simple expediency, the 'whatever it takes' (just get the job done) mentality is winning the day. Political correctness has all but destroyed the left whereas the right streaks ahead unburdened by any ethical issues. Ideology has been completely abandoned in favour of strategy. Any semblance to ideology is merely coincidental or a ruse/distraction.
I was in the middle of Starhawk's spiral dance tonight at the VBC's evening venue with many earnest citizens of Cascadia and I thought "what's not quite right with this?". This poem popped out-it reflects both that situation and some personal stuff as well but is not the personal also the political?

The prime members of the Anglo-American Liars' Club, President George W. Bush and the UK's Tony Blair, met at the White House on May 25, 2006. The bull session lead to more perpetual war propaganda, including an agreement to keep troops there until the new Iraqi government of occupation "takes control." Protesters expected at the confab, include Ann Wright, who resigned her State Dept. job rather than endorse the Neocon-inspired war.

Under a little used rule first created in 1977, but never used by any President until today, corporations can be exempt from SEC rules relating to accounting for reasons related to national security. Essentially, under the cover of national security, a corporation can hide any and all projects or programs anywhere on earth by not reporting the capital expeditures on their books. Folks, do you not see the power waiting to be abused in this? Do you find it hard to trust corporations? Wait until they don't have to show you their books. 100% pure corporatism.

The DC-9 busted in Ciudad Del Carmen,Campeche, Mexico on April 11,2006 by the Mexican army is clearly connected to Republican business owners,the Titan Corp of San Diego,and penny stock fraud.It is also connected to Huffmann Aviation of Venice, Florida that played a role in 9/11. And Howard Dean used it in his 2004 presidential campaign !
ok last night out of frustration and needing to occupy my mind on
some little project that I could throw myself into without deadlnes
and pressure I interepted this song into Chinook Wawa (Chinook
Jargon)... I did change some of the words (hence an interpetation
not literal translation). Two things I changed were specific
geographic names so I switch one from a specific river to the
Chinook Jargon word for "downstream" and a specific "square"
or "park" to Cheechako Lolo which can be translated as New Comer
Gathering Place. Also changed a tradtional "ethnic" mucical
instrument to "mamook pompom" drumming. And out of need had to cut
one line because the Chinook Jargon way of expressing two of the
verses was longer than the English and other Indo-European versions.
And ofcourse an interpetation does not follow the exact word order
of a literal translation.
Personally I would love to hear this sung by a female singer. And
after listening to several songs in Chinok Jargon they can at times
sound like a merger of French and Native American languages.
If any creative and talented people out there wish to record this I would love to here it.
So guess the song.
hint its about 15 years old or so
there are versions in Russian, Spanish and other languages online for free.

The US Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday gave its support to General Michael Hayden, the principle architect of recently exposed domestic spying programs, to head the Central Intelligence Agency.
Leading Democrats joined Republicans in approving Hayden, the former head of the National Security Agency (NSA) and the current principal deputy director of national intelligence. Hayden is expected to easily win confirmation by the full Senate before the end of the week.
Four Democrats and all eight Republicans on the committee voted to recommend Hayden's confirmation by the full Senate, while three Democrats voted against. The four Democrats who voted for Hayden are among the most senior Democrats in the Senate: the ranking Democrat and vice chairman of the committee, Jay Rockefeller (West Virginia); Carl Levin of Michigan, the second-ranking Democrat on the committee; Dianne Feinstein of California; and Barbara Mikulski of Maryland.

How is nighttime bombing of a village (when all the kids are sure to be home and tucked in bed) supposed to be "bringing democracy" to anybody? And what are these villagers supposed to do when armed Taliban fighters demand refuge in their houses? Turn them out and tell them to go away?

The animal rights activists known as the SHAC 7 are about to be tried as terrorists for the crime of speaking. They join animal rights and environmental activists across the country, who are being swept up in a government witch hunt intended to silence effective activists. The government's efforts are not going to work. Because animal rights activists refuse to be silent.

In recent months millions of immigrants have been in the streets protesting the vicious attacks that Bush and Congress are preparing to legislate against them, while local governments also formulate attacks. Behind this reactionary onslaught is the fact that the capitalists want immigrant labor, but they want it without rights so that they can more profitably exploit it...The effect of this capitalist strategy of super-exploiting immigrant workers while denying them equal rights is to drive down the wages and conditions of the entire working class. Thus, our demand must be full rights for all immigrants now! Enough of the capitalists' attempts to pit worker against worker! All for one, and one for all!

Today, Mayor Potter publically revealed (and condemned) an effort by the FBI to place an informant within the walls of City Hall. A lesser man might have been tempted to let the matter drop lest, in hearing the news, his constituents might suspect that he "had something to hide," a phrase often heard these days. But Mayor Potter is not a man easily cowed into the corner. Thankfully, he's moved to bring Big Brother out of the closet. In an open letter to the people, he spoke out not only against this personal intrustion, but against the whole web of warrantless, lawless government spying so nakedly revealed to us recently.
With the Turin Winter Olympics and the Italian elections over, repression of the "NO TAV" movement has begun and pressure will be on to begin work on the Turin-Lyon (France)link of the Italian high-speed train network (TAV). Massive protests late last year finally forced the issue into national attention, and now eight subpoenas have been handed down from those protests. But the opposition is ready to continue their 15-year struggle.
In protest of the illegal war in Iraq and the militarization of the Olympia Port, community members came together to take a stand. The day started out with a group of around 30 holding signs on the corners of State and Plum/East Bay. After 12 noon, much of the group moved closer to the entrance of the port. A group of 10 formed a blockade to stop one of the convoys around 1:30. Eight people were arrested after stopping the convoy for about 30 minutes.

Even Illinois Republican Dennis Hastert is outraged by the recent raid on the office of Louisiana Rep. William Jefferson. Whatever the reason for the FBI investigation , it is important to compare the dollar amount involved, and the recent protests by Jefferson regarding the BILLIONS of dollars of contracts for "rebuilding" Louisiana that have resulting in a giant sucking sound - sucking cash out of Louisiana and into the pockets of the same corrupt contractors who have attempted to hide their failed "rebuilding" of Iraq with illegal claims of secrecy for the sake of "national security" when, in fact, the GAO and the GSA ruled to the contrary.

"The bogus claim made by the Provos that the Stormont Agreement of 1998 was a logical succession to the hunger-strike deaths of 1981 was equivalent to the Free Staters' assertion that the 26-County State arose out of the Easter Rising of 1916," said the President of Republican Sinn Féin, at a 25th anniversary commemoration of the death of hunger-striker Raymond McCreesh at his grave in Camloch, south Armagh on Sunday, May 21.

There seem to be two schools of thought with regard to H5N1. The first is that it is a conspiracy to thin the population and/or make a bundle off of drugs like Tamiflu. The second is the opposite situation, that H5N1 is much closer to human-to-human transmission than previously thought and the conspiracy is the under-reporting of the potential pandemic. This story broke today in the Azeri-Press Agency.
So intriguing that Ms. Amy Goodman steadfastly refuses to take part in any discussion at all concerning the 9/11 truth movement, or even acknowledge its existance, yet she WILL discuss OTHER side-topics concerning 9/11. For example, this was on today's program:
The FBI conducted a search of the office of Louisiana Representative William Jefferson over the weekend in what is the first such intrusion by an agency of the executive branch into the office of a sitting congressman in US history. In a press conference on Monday, Jefferson, a Democrat, denounced the raid as an "outrageous intrusion into the separation of powers."
The raid on Jefferson's office in the Rayburn House Office Building on Saturday night was a politically motivated breach of constitutional boundaries aimed at asserting the power of the executive branch over the legislative. It is yet another political marker in the government's moves towards dictatorial forms of rule.
The action was an unmistakable signal to any congressmen who might be inclined to seriously investigate the myriad illegal and unconstitutional actions of the administration, and hold leading members of the administration accountable.
