Just think of how many people and how many nations are involved in this COUNTERFEIT operation!
All of this has gone beyond CONSTITUTIONAL POWERS OF OFFICES OF PUBLIC TRUST! This has actually gone into a CORPORATE TAKEOVER of the Xth Amendment Governments of the Union of the Republics!
Believe it or not "DO NOT INVESTIGATE" any of these or related matters is the ORDERS OF THE DAY from the Department of Justice, Deputy AG, Jamie Gorelick.

March On The RNC?
The crisis has shaken economics to its foundations. The neoliberal mainstream has lost its support; economists alternate between self-doubt and arrogance. Once they were guided by belief in the rationality of economic subjects and markets and the notion that financial management exists to serve the real economy.
Trillions of dollars are hidden in secretive tax havens untaxed while austerity is imposed and jobs are lost.
As negotiations enter their final stretch, it is imperative to get the word out on how CETA could further jeopardize our political and economic sovereignty. A NAFTA-style free trade agreement with Europe that gives corporations further powers to influence Canadian laws would be dangerous and destructive. Considering the deepening economic crisis in Europe and the real possibility that the Eurozone could break up, this is also the wrong time for Canada to be entering into this trade deal with the EU.
The police exist to protect and serve our oppressors.

The state became indebted to bailout the banks. Now the state pays them ever higher interests. The state should guarantee the deposits of small savers, not the debts of banks to other banks or hedge funds or the assets of multi-millionaires. The financial sector must be shriveled, the sector that became much too big and uncoupled from the real economy.
The economy should be a part of life, not a steamroller crushing creativity and self-determination. The banks and the financial sector must be shriveled and re-connected to the real economy.

How about the annual compensation of a major defense contractor's Chief Executive Officer?
A Project On Government Oversight analysis of executive compensation at the top five Pentagon contractors - Lockheed Martin, Boeing, General Dynamics, Northrup Grumman, and Raytheon - found that the average compensation package of a CEO at one of these firms was approximately $21.5 million last year, according to the firms' Securities and Exchange Commission filings. Total compensation is the sum of base salary, bonuses, stock awards, option awards, incentive compensation, deferred compensation (including changes in pension value), and all other compensation.
The only plausible explanation for global warming is human activity. So we should ask the obvious question: Who profits from the activity that causes global warming and who funds the anti-science global-warming denialist groups?
Brachfield Law Group made a classic collections blunder-attempting to collect a debt from the wrong person. In this case, however, the "wrong" person was a senator!
lecture dealing with the writings of Thomas Merton and Daniel Berrigan on the subject of peace, protest and their actions in the 1950s and 1960s.
"The barbaric core of capitalist socialization is on full display in the present system crisis. The propagandists of totalitarian economism come in the mask of democrats. Economic-profitability thinking is actually pushed to the extreme from the middle and imposed on the whole society. Our society has long been viewed as a business."
It is not so unbelievable that Portland City Council wants to fluoridate our water. If Nestle gets the go ahead (which they will because of the money trail) with their plans to set up a water bottling plant in the Gorge then they will sell much more bottled water to city dwellers who want to avoid the fluoride. Also check out this story: About 'Fluoride' -- Truth Every Mother Should Know
Fluoride used by Nazis to sterilize inmates and make them docile. Fluoride a key dumbing down ingredient of Prozac and Sarin nerve gas ... by A. True Ott ... THERE IS BIG MONEY AND BIG CORRUPTION BEHIND THE NOT SO STEALTH PLANS TO FLUORIDATE OUR WATER.
There are no comments to this article because it says it all. A great piece on what many of us know already it covers material that applies to every activist group and thinking person about what we are facing and the war against us. "In a world in which we see psychopathic politicians and industry leaders flourishing, it behooves us to consider which conditions are ideal for and which inimical to such pathology. Looking at the fundamental conditions underlying pathology becomes paramount since resistance has been limited (as with protests) or controlled (as with national media), and even infiltrated (as with FBI agents stoking violence from inside peace groups), and since language itself has been perverted (as with attacking and taking control of Iraq and calling that bringing peace and democracy) and lies are presented as truth (as with references to a mythical "deadly Spanish flu pandemic" when aspirin was the killer)."
Exploding inequality of incomes and assets, trillions for wars of adventure, trillions for fraudulent banks and speculators, corporate tax evasion, mass unemployment, envornmental destruction, structural economic and tax justice problems and destruction of democracy are repressed in Ryan's budget proposal. The rich are enriched and the poor impoverished.
If your paycheck is $1000, then you will pay the government $10 just for the privilege of depositing your paycheck in your bank. Even if you hand carry your paycheck or any check in to your bank for a deposit, 1% tax will be charged. You receive a $5,000 stock dividend from your broker, the government takes $50 just to allow you to deposit that check in the bank. If you take $1,000 cash to deposit at your bank, 1% tax will be charged.
A small but passionate crowd gathered on the steps of Pioneer Courthouse Square today in solidarity with workers in Colombia who have been fired as a result of injuries sustained on assembly line.
Portland Solidarity with GM Workers in Colombia
Regulated capitalism reached its peak in the class compromise of the 1960s when representatives of workers could put the screws on the steamroller CEOs a little. The enemy and dynamic are lost to capitalism. Capitalism flows into a society without utopia and political alternative. Where mastery and taming were the program in the past, unconditional devotion is now emphasized.
The economy demonstrates - in the Marxist sense - its primacy over politics. Whose interests are realized? New holes opened up after every bailout action during the last four years. The financial crisis is only the latest manifestation of a general capitalist distribution crisis in society. Greece is only the tip of the iceberg. The debtor is not to blame for the disaster.
Remember all that call for more "regulation" from "outraged banksters" that such fraudulent and criminal behavior as robo-signing, un-regulated derivatives creation and discounting, and all the hand-wringing that accompanied it, could be tolerated? The fact that this Consumer Financial Protection Bureau resides in the Federal Reserve says it all: "Here: Let us regulate ourselves, install our regulatory offices in the one institution in America that has no public accountability, won't even publish its shareholders, has never been properly audited, and we'll protect you! By the way, you have to borrow money from us to pay our salaries while we're busy protecting you, thereby increasing your indebtedness to us."

So if the 104-hour earthquake warning for 9.+ magnitude earthquakes off of Sydney, Australia and Portland, OR this weekend and following weeks happen, how will we take care of each other?
A block party celebration for the liberated house of Alica's and the liberation of the land that was taken from her due to predatory loans and scummy bankers. A celebration in the street, with music food and speeches. The 'surprise' is announced that the house next door [built on Alicas land] is becoming a "community center" FOR THE PEOPLE.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is asking for your input on what impacts to consider when exporting liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States to Asia. The Jordan Cove/Pacific Connector proposal would include the impacts of building a 235-mile pipeline through southern Oregon, cutting through nearly 400 streams, likely using eminent domain, clear-cutting through 80 miles of public forests, decreasing national energy supplies and increasing domestic prices by exporting U.S. natural gas from a terminal in Coos Bay.
There is a powerful crisis dynamic that is stronger than the will of the sovereign and its democratic institutions. When capital relations fall into crisis, everything can be redefined or instrumentalized: the basic law, democracy, elementary human rights and even human life. Economic pressure creates an extremism of the middle.
The Fed is more worried about inflation than mass unemployment. Maybe the guaranteed basic income and/or community centers are the antidotes to elite failures and market failures. The Washington Consensus (privatization, deregulation and liberalization of markets) like infinite growth is more the cause of economic malaise than its solution.
The economy should be a part of life, not a steamroller crushing creativity and self-determination.

The mythology of the solo genius purports to justify massive inequality because the "solo genius" single-handedly created a popular product and thus single-handedly brought prosperity upon the land. In reality, without the infrastructure that government provides in the form of educational institutions, a court system that adjudicates commercial disputes, police and the military to suppress dissent at home and abroad, an ever larger basket of subsidies, and "free trade" agreements that promote corporate interests above human rights, billionaires would not be able to become billionaires.
lenny bloom please ask yourself a simple question which (oblivously) has not been addressed: though the media has reported the ways and means and amounts of weaponry and ammunition purchased and where from,,,,,,never has the question come up....where did an unemployed dropout (very intelligent) student get the money ( mucho money) for all of the weponry and ammunition he purchased???????? why has this not been mentioned by the media???????????????23-24, 2012 -- aurora massacre: several links between james holmes and u.s. government research
