B.C.'s Wild Salmon Survival Threatened

Farmed and Dangerous Alert
"Wild Salmon In Trouble" (, a new short animation released today online, takes viewers on a provocative tour of how salmon farming and sea lice are harming BC's wild salmon.
The animation is based on published, peer-reviewed scientific research and foreshadows an unknown future for coastal ecosystems and communities if something isn’t done to protect wild salmon from farm-derived sea lice. CAAR is asking supporters to watch this video and share it with at least 5 friends!

Canadian Self-Loathing

Canadian Self-Loathing
by C. L. Cook
Now I understand those ancients who watched mutely the rise of German fascism. I understand because I'm watching the flourishing of that same evil weed again here in Canada.
And like those doomed Aryans of yore, those Germans appalled by the coming of Herr Hitler and his brown and black-shirted, skull and cross-bone adorned neo Visigoths, there seems nowhere now to run, and no way to stay and stem the tide.

I'm also coming to understand the phenomena of hatred of ones origin. Today, three generations after the fall of the Nazis, there is still within Germany a deep shame, a disgrace that manifests, I'm told by a German acquaintance, in a loathing of things German, a hatred of self and the culture that gave rise to the horrific Third Reich.
Yes, now I think I can understand that.

U.S. Backs Reign of Crime and Death in Somalia

Pirates of the Horn: U.S. Backs Reign of Crime and Death in Somalia
by Chris Floyd
The civilian death count from the American-backed "regime change" operation in Somalia is approaching 10,000, with more than 800 killed in the Terror War slaughter since June.

The figures, compiled by the Elman Peace and Human Rights Organization in Mogadishu, are almost certainly an undercount, given the rampant chaos that has ravaged the country in the wake of the Ethiopian invasion, and the Muslim practice of quick burial of the dead. But they are horrific enough, especially when added to another statistic released by the United Nations last month: 3.7 million Somalis are now in need of outside aid in order to survive. This is more than one-third of the entire population.

Bomb Rocks Islamabad Marriott

Bomb Blast in Islamabad Marriott
by Zahir Ebrahim
For Heavens sake peoples of Pakistan and the World: stop blaming India's RAW, Jihadis' Taliban and Al-Qaeeda, etc., as the prime-movers of this new atrocity on the Pakistani peoples. Misdiagnosing a systemic disease is a sure protocol for never finding its cure!

The destabilization of Pakistan has needed a confluence of patsies and mercenaries. A patsy or dupe is one who strongly believes in what he/she is doing, but is deftly controlled by puppetmasters. A mercenary is one who sells his/her allegiance to the highest bidder at any moment in time. The suicide bombers and cultivated "jihadis" of the likes that Pakistan has never seen in its entire history before, are patsies.
The Pakistani ruling-elite are the mercenaries. Between the two, Black-ops dollars have been well spent in Pakistan!

Assailing South America: An Open Letter

Threat to Democracy in Latin America
by Pinter, Pilger, Benn et al
On September 10 President Evo Morales of Bolivia declared the US ambassador persona non grata. On September 11 (the 35th anniversary of the military overthrow of Salvador Allende in Chile) the president of Venezuela asked the US ambassador there to leave the country.
President Hugo Chávez believed he was facing the possibility of an imminent coup d'etat in which he said the US administration were involved. President Morales believed that his government was facing serious destabilisation which was also being fomented by the US. A third country, Paraguay, announced 10 days previously that it had detected a conspiracy involving military officers and opposition politicians.

We are appalled by the failure of much of the international media to provide accurate and proportionate coverage of these events. All democrats throughout [the world] should rally to defend democracy in Latin America.

The Rise and Threatened Fall of the Bank of International Art Money

Denmark's BIAM Sued for Using Term 'Bank'
by Lyn X, Our Voice Street News (Canada)
The Bank of International Art Money (BIAM) is an internet-based, artist-run project established by Danish artist Lars Kraemmer in Copenhagen in 1998. Much like ATCs (artist trading cards), mail-art and other forms of swapping projects that require a credit or barter system, BIAM recognizes the intrinsic value in the art being produced, and its intended purpose is to encourage artists from around the world to issue "original Art Money bills" as a global alternative currency. Participants are required to follow a set of guidelines concerning measurements, format, identifying elements and acceptable media. Every piece is issued an initial value of 200 Danish Kroner (around 27 Euro or $34 USD) and increases in value by five Euro per year for 7 years. BIAM has arts-friendly business partners who accept Art Money at 'face value', and also has an international Host Registry where travelling artists can pay for accommodation with their art money.
Pretty cool, huh?

Well, on March 12, 2008 founder Lars Kraemmer was officially charged by Danish police for using the word "bank" in this well-established collaborative art project. Yes. You read that right. The Danish Financial Advisory Board-an agency under the Ministry of Economics and Business Affairs-initiated the charges after Kraemmer ignored an initial citation issued (by DFAB) a couple years ago, demanding that he stop using the word "bank" in BIAM. Kraemmer expects to go to court at the end of 2008 and now faces anything from a fine to four months in prison.

Fear Motivation and the Greatest American Rip-off

Fear Motivation and the Greatest American Rip-off 
by Shelley Bluejay Pierce
We Americans are being "fear-motivated" once again...while the wool is being pulled over our eyes EXACTLY as it happened to all of us in the days that followed the 9/11 attacks.
We need to be giving our Congressional reps a SERIOUS phone call tomorrow, demanding that this financial legislation NOT be approved until given time for full and completely detailed review by EVERY member of Congress! 
If they give us the excuse that they "simply HAVE TO get this bill passed before Congress goes into recess..."

Senator Recommends Palin's Husband Be Held in Contempt

Home Alaska Senator Recommends Palin's Husband Be Held in Contempt 
by Jason Leopold
The way in which the McCain-Palin campaign has managed the two-month-old investigation is reminiscent of the stonewalling tactics the Bush administration has employed for nearly two years with regard to a congressional investigation into the White House’s role in the firing of nine U.S. attorneys, which appears to have been carried out because the federal prosecutors were disloyal to the president.
Alaska Sen. Hollis French recommended Friday that Gov. Sarah Palin's husband, Todd Palin, and two state officials, be held in contempt for refusing to comply with a subpoena involving a state sanctioned investigation into allegations the governor improperly fired her top law enforcement official in July.

Troops fer der Homeland

Brigade Homeland Tour Begins Oct. 1
via CLG
Brigade homeland tours start Oct. 1 for deployment during 'civil unrest,' 'horrific scenarios' [The 'horrific scenario' of the 2nd American Revolution after a third stolen 'election?']. The 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team has spent 35 of the last 60 months in Iraq patrolling in full battle rattle.
Beginning Oct. 1 for 12 months, the 1st BCT will be under the day-to-day control of U.S. Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call federal response force for natural or man(Bush)-made emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks.
This new mission marks the first time an active unit has been given a dedicated assignment to NorthCom. They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.
