Brute Force, The Power to Hurt, and Psychological Control

Deconstructing the Power of the Global Elite: Brute Force, The Power to Hurt, and Psychological Control
by Judith H. Young, Ph.D.
In the aftermath of Congressional approval of bailout legislation granting sweeping powers to the  financial elite, the body politic appears to be helplessly mired in the relentless unfolding of classical fascism before its very eyes. 
Coming to terms with this terrifying predicament can benefit from a primer that renders naked the forms of raw power used by the global elite in advancing its agenda for full spectrum dominance. This will enable us to determine if we are in fact helpless and to use care and deliberation in finding the means to take our power back.

Bailout Bill's Bluff, Bluster and B.S.

Why Bluff Martial Law?
by Zahir Ebrahim
The fear-mongering that many Congressmen in their House Floor-Speeches had alluded to, including the explicit threat of Martial Law in America noted by Representative Brad Sherman, D-CA, and Martial Law already instituted in Congress to squelch debate and due process as alluded to by Representative Michael Burgess, R-Texas, really cemented the signing of this Bill today.

Under these circumstances, Grand Theft America has been initiated. Project Humanbeingsfirst wrote a letter to the United States Congress yesterday, on October 02, 2008, suggesting to open a second more powerful front to disarm them.

Presidential Candidate McKinney Charges 5,000 "Prisoners" Executed in Wake of Katrina

Presidential Candidate McKinney Charges 5,000 "Prisoners" Executed in Wake of Katrina
by C. L. Cook
Former Democratic party House representative, and current Green Party candidate for president, Cynthia McKinney at a recent press conference charged mass executions of "prisoners" occurred in Louisiana in the wake of hurricane Katrina in 2005. 
The source of McKinney's allegation was purportedly a woman whose son was assigned the grim task of disposing of the bodies of thousands of men who all received a single gunshot to the head. Both the man involved and his mother wish to remain anonymous, the man saying he was forced to sign a confidentiality agreement.

Military "Bailout" Business as Usual

Massive US Military Budget Passed
Chalmers Johnson: US wrong to believe it can maintain both a military and civilian economy.

While debate over the Paulson bailout package dominated the headlines, the US Congress quietly passed a landmark $615 Billion defense spending bill. One of the few people to comment on the measure was Chalmers Johnson, in his article "We have the money".

Exorcising the American Dream

Chasing the American Dream Won't Keep You in Shape
by Mickey Z.
The American Dream is a fable of individualized success. If you outwork and out-think and out-hustle the competition, this is truly the land of opportunity. Anything is possible…and if you succeed, it’s because you worked harder and better and deserved it more.
This myth is conveniently helpful for praising success, but mighty damaging in explaining failure. If you don’t attain your goals (or at least the goals foisted upon you), the blame is on you and you alone. It’s your fault that you’re not living up to the standards set by billboards, magazine ads and television.

Part babysitter, part opinion-giver and part hypnotist, the TV has come to dominate American life like no other invention. We learn what to eat, how to dress, what to say and how to think all from that glowing box in our bedroom and living room…and kitchen and gym and bank and airport (there seems to be a TV everywhere).
The payoff for all this spectatorship is a lifestyle based on imitation, competition, materialism and self-delusion.

Vandals in the Cathedral: Island Timberlands Log Vancouver Island Eco Treasure

Today Island Timberlands Cut Down Trees in Cathedral Grove
by Friends of Cathedral Grove
While the logging company claims that there is a buffer of 300 metres between the falling area and the internationally renowned park, the reality is that the buffer is actually the Cameron River which meanders along the bottom of the Valley at that point just before flowing into Cameron Lake. 
This water then flows into the Little Qualicum River which is the source of drinking water for thousands of residents of Whiskey Creek and the Town of Qualicum Beach.
We seek your support by attending these events.  Please bring friends and help show the media that people still care about Cathedral Grove.

Saws Back to Cathedral Grove

Saws Back to Cathedral Grove

Despite years of tree-sit protests, and promises made by the Liberal government of British Columbia, the chain saws are once again warming up to cut down swaths of this already diminished natural wonder.
And ask the British Columbia government!

Terrorists Launch Economic 9/11 on the American People

Shock and Awe: Bipartisan Beltway Terrorists Launch Economic 9/11 on the American People
by Chris Floyd 
You've seen the news. You know the score. The House of Representatives has now completed the economic terrorist attack inflicted on the American people by the nation's elite.

The bailout bill -- or as Arthur Silber more rightly terms it, the "Extortion Bill" -- is already law, thanks to the Democrats in Congress, and to Barack Obama, who spent the day working the phones and twisting arms to make sure the $700 billion bonanza for the filthy rich passed without any more of the hiccups that held it up earlier this week.

America's War on Working Moms

Shame: The US War Against Unarmed Working Mothers
by Bill Quigley
Is this what our nation has come to? War against unarmed working mothers? Have we no shame?

Dozens of petite young mothers gathered this week in the parking lot outside the US Department of Homeland Security in Gulfport, Mississippi. Each wore a long dress or pants to hide her electronic ankle bracelet. Lift up a pants leg and you can see the black plastic band and monitor, which is the size of a pack of cigarettes. Most wore sandals. Several were obviously pregnant.

From the outside, the building looked like any office park. But a blue Homeland Security flag waved right next to the red white and blue out in front. Inside, the mothers were being interviewed and readied for deportation.

The crime these mothers are charged with? Not guns, not drugs, not spying. Working to put food on the table for their families and not being citizens of the US.
