Nation-states organized by neoliberal priorities have implicitly declared war on their children.
If youth were once the repository of society's dreams, that is no longer true.
Young people today are expected to inhabit a set of relations in which the only obligation is to live for oneself.
The data-mining marketers make young people think they count when in fact "all they want to do is count them."
In the US today 500,000 young people are incarcerated and 2.5 million are arrested annually.
Young people inhabit a new and more unsettling scene of suffering, a dead zone of the imagination.
Young people aligning with others can be a vibrant source of creativity, possibility and political struggle.

Colt and the endless wars (Vietnam and Iraq)
* "The Last 'Big Lie' of Vietnam Kills U. S. Soldiers in Iraq" (2004-08-24, [] [begin excerpt]: At a Vietnam Special Forces base during 1964, I watched a U. S. soldier fire 15 rounds of .223 caliber ammunition into a tethered goat from a Colt's AR—15 rifle; moments after the last round hit, the goat fell over. Looking at the dead goat, I saw many little bullet entry—holes on one side; and when we turned him over, I saw many little bullet exit—holes on the other side. Over time, those observations were confirmed and reconfirmed, revealing that the stories we were told on the lethality of the .223 caliber cartridge were fabrications.
In 1961, Colt's did get somebody's attention. The Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA) of the Department of Defense (DoD) was enjoined by the Kennedy Administration to explore how the United States could support a foreign ally in a 'limited' war. In October of 1961, ARPA provided ten Colt's AR—15's to Vietnamese Forces in Saigon to conduct a limited test. Ezell & Stevens write that this approval resulted in "saving Colt's from almost sure financial disaster and also setting the stage for the most influential yet controversial document so far in the history of the already controversial AR—15."
The Project AGILE results were summed up, in part, by ARPA as follows: "The suitability of the AR—15 as the basic shoulder weapon for the Vietnamese has been established. For the type of conflict now occurring in Vietnam, the weapon was also found by its users and by MAAG advisors to be superior in virtually all respects to the M1 Rifle, M1 and M2 Carbines, Thompson Sub—Machine Gun, and Browning Automatic Rifle."
In any case, the report was widely read and some of its components came under serious question, especially those purporting to describe the demonstrated lethality of the .223 caliber cartridge.
"On 13 April, a Special Forces team made a raid on a small village. In the raid, seven VC were killed. Two were killed by AR—15 fire. Range was 50 meters. One man was hit in the head; it looked like it exploded. A second man was hit in the chest, his back was one big hole. (VN Special Forces)"
The above "field—reports" [see article link for the other reports] are incredulous on their face and some in DoD requested that these results be duplicated scientifically. The Army Wound Ballistics Laboratory at Edgewood Arsenal attempted to do just that. They failed to duplicate the explosive effects reported by Project AGILE. In November 1962, the Army initiated 'Worldwide' tactical and technical tests of the AR—15 using U. S. soldiers. The results? 'As it turned out, even the hollow—points failed to duplicate anything like the spectacular effects recorded by the Vietnamese unit commanders and their American advisors, which had subsequently been taken as fact and much used as propaganda.'

* "Berkeley Post Office Defenders respond to Judge Alsup's decision" (2015-04-17):
On April 14th, 2015 Judge Alsup ruled in favor of the US Postal Service's attempt to dismiss the City of Berkeley's lawsuit which sought to halt the sale of the people's post office in downtown Berkeley. He ruled that since no sale is pending, the issue is not ripe for litigation.
While this is not the decision Berkeley Post Office Defenders (BPOD), First They Came for the Homeless nor the City of Berkeley was looking for, the judge did NOT rule that the Postal Service is free and clear to go ahead and sell the building at 2000 Allston Way. There is no doubt that the position of those of us who oppose a sale has improved: should USPS attempt to sell the building, Judge Alsup made it clear that the City is free to reinstitute the lawsuit on the same grounds, and the USPS must provide the City with 42 days notice before a finalized purchase can occur.
As a proclamation of continued community commitment, BPOD strongly urges the Berkeley City Council to reiterate its firm stance opposing a sale by reaffirming its intent to sue should another sales attempt arise. We also wish to thank the entire community - which has persevered for three years in this fight – for the role each and every participant opposing the sale played, and we send notice to the Postal Service that none of us are going away.
Instead of a cycle of litigation without end, Berkeley Post Office Defenders and First They Came for the Homeless call on the Postal Service to permanently renounce a sale and enter into discussions with the community about how to best use the space for the public good in the spirit of the Zoning Ordinance we pushed for and which ultimately passed.  We created the community garden on Milvia - transformed from a trash dump to blooming greenery. We have more ideas: using some of the excess space as an incubator for postal banking, as a library annex for online access, as a service center for homeless people and/or urban gardening. We suggest installing solar panels on the vast, flat roof, both for revenue and the environment. And there is office space along Milvia and the parking spaces in the back that could be rented - unused resources in the heart of downtown.
The Berkeley Post Office was built with the sweat and tax equity of our great-grandparents. It belongs to the people. It can and must remain as a Post Office in perpetuity – while additionally serving the community in other ways.

* "Flag fracas at Valdosta State: Protesters walk on Stars and Stripes; veteran banned from university for taking flag from demonstrators" (2015-04-17, The Valdosta Daily Times) []:
VALDOSTA — A military veteran was detained but not charged by Valdosta State University police after she approached a group of protesters on campus who were walking on an American flag and took it from them. Michelle Manhart, an Air Force veteran, said she was not planning to take the flag from the group, but she had heard about the group’s recent campus demonstrations and wanted to take action. “I did not want anything like this, but I got a call from a student who told me that the flag was on the ground, and they were walking on it,” said Manhart. “I was just going over there to pick up the flag off the ground. I don’t know what their cause is, but I went to pick it up because it doesn’t deserve to be on the ground.” Manhart said she was taken into custody by VSU police officers who then returned the flag to the demonstrators. She admitted to The Valdosta Daily Times that she resisted arrest after seeing the flag being returned. The group reportedly declined to press charges against Manhart. The officers attempting to detain her also declined to press charges for resisting. Instead, Manhart was given a criminal trespass warning which effectively bans her from any university activity, including graduation and football games, said Andy Clark, vice president for enrollment, marketing and communications. The demonstrators declined to identify their group to The Valdosta Daily Times or speak with a reporter about their cause, but they did engage VSU students in heated debate.
One member of the group who declined to speak with The Valdosta Daily Times or identify himself told a VSU student that putting the American flag on the ground and walking on it was “a symbol of our protest. When a slave understands his situation and understands he doesn’t want to be in slavery, he does not respect or revere anything his slavemaster has put in front of him.” Manhart said she was not on campus long enough to discern the group’s message. However, she said if the cause was racism, she agreed with the cause but opposed the method of protest. “If your cause is racism then find some white people and walk on them,” said Manhart. “But to walk on the flag is walking on our symbol of freedom. You have the freedom to do what you are doing because of it. I’m not fighting against them. I’m fighting against the way they are going about it.” Manhart said she hoped to ask for a letter of apology from the group and to take possession of the flag so she could dispose of it properly.
Clark said university officials were unable to determine if the demonstrators were VSU students but said the group had the right to protest on campus. “They were exercising their right to symbolic speech. As long as they don’t disrupt the operations of the university, we let people engage in protest and debate,” said Clark. After Manhart was escorted from campus, VSU officers asked to see the demonstrators’ student identification cards. The individuals refused to produce any identification and were asked to disperse, Clark said. The Board of Regents released the following statement about the incident: “We respect the rights of people to peacefully assemble and voice their opinions. Our primary concern is the safety of our students, faculty and staff and our ability to carry out our responsibilities to all our students on campus. We are monitoring the situation.”

* "Roosevelt Is No Socialist, Norman Thomas Assures Al Smith", February 15, 1936 []:
Attempts of Al Smith, in his Liberty League banquet speech, to read Roosevelt and the New Deal into the Socialist fold were emphatically rejected by Norman Thomas, Socialist leader, in a broadcast over the Columbia network. Thomas said Roosevelt has not “carried out most of the demands of the Socialist platform—unless he carried them out on a stretcher.”
“There is nothing Socialist about trying to regulate or reform Wall Street,” Thomas said. “Socialism wants to abolish the system of which Wall Street is an appropriate expression.”
“There is nothing Socialist about trying to break up great holding companies. We Socialists would prefer to acquire holding companies in order to socialize the utilities now subject to them.
“There is no Socialism at all about taking over all the banks which fell in Uncle Sam’s lap, putting them on their feet again, and turning them back to the bankers to see if they can bring them once more to ruin.”

* "Wagner Urges Unemployment Relief Action" by Sen. Robert Wagner, June 14, 1930 []:
The federal government is always engaged in constructing highways, developing rivers and harbors, erecting flood-control structures, and public buildings. It should plan these projects in advance and time them so as to make available opportunities for employment when private business slackens.
And the federal government should join with the states in the establishment of a nationwide system of public employment offices, so as to assist workers to find jobs and to assist employers to find workers with the least amount of delay and with the least amount of friction.
Of course, carrying out this program will cost money. The long-range plan bill authorizes an appropriation of $150 million; the employment exchange bill, $4 million. These are big sums of money even for a country as large as the United States. But when you stop to compare these figures with the costs of unemployment, then you become competent to judge which way lies true economy.
In one single month last winter, factory workers alone lost in wages $200 million. It the first three months of 1930, it has been estimated that wage earners alone lost no less than a billion in wages. If by a little expenditure or money and a big expenditure of thought, we can build a dam to shut off this Niagara of money losses arising out of unemployment, is it not sound economy to do so?
Consider what it would have meant to the farmer, to the manufacturer, and in turn to the worker if this vast amount of purchasing power had not been withdrawn from the market.

* "Human Wreckage: A Plea for Federal Relief" by William Green, President, American Federation of Labor, February 20, 1932 []

* "The Long Plan for Recovery" by Senator Huey P. Long, April 1, 1933 []:
With the one law which I propose to submit, I think most of our difficulties will be brought to an almost immediate end. To carry out President Roosevelt’s plan as announced in his inaugural address for redistribution and to prevent unjust accumulation of wealth, I am now drawing a law, but without consort with the president, for the following:
A capital levy tax, principally on fortunes above $10 million graduated so that when a fortune of $100 million is reached, the capital tax levy will take all the balance above that sum. This will not prevent aggregated capital, that is, several persons combining their wealth in one big enterprise, but will prevent only one man owning from $10 million to $100 million without paying the government a substantial part and will further prevent any man from owning anything at all above the value of $100 million.
An inheritance tax, heavier in the higher brackets than at present, graduated so that no one person can inherit more than $5 million, the balance to go to the government.
An income tax about the same as now exists except that it shall be heavier in the higher brackets and finally providing that no one will be permitted to keep more than $1 million from earnings of one year.
Because of the fact that in some cases it would be difficult for large property to be sold at a fair value to pay the inheritance and capital levy taxes, the proposed law will provide that such taxes may be paid in a course of several years and that in case a fair price for the property cannot be obtained in that length of time by the tax debtor, that the government will take its percent of the property and market it along such lines as may be best for general welfare.
This proposed legislation will operate to down the big fortunes so that they cannot be so powerful to crush out the little men and little businesses. It will mean the solution of the problem of financing all such things as the guaranteeing of bank deposits and the public construction works, including roads, navigation, flood control, reforestation, unemployment, farm relief, canals, irrigation, etc. And with this law passed, no one can ever again say that our government has not a satisfactory basis for an adequate and sufficient currency. All such can be amply financed by the government without any burden on the common citizen at all and in a manner that accomplishes the still better object of the decentralization of wealth. Such public works of the government will provide employment for everyone in the country not otherwise gainfully employed, and it will so stimulate all private endeavors and business that little additional legislation will be necessary.
Isn’t $10 million to $100 million enough for any one man? What’s he going to do with anymore?
Isn’t $5 million enough for one child to inherit, who never hit a lick of work for it?
Isn’t $1 million enough for any one man to make in one year?
Decentralize wealth, is the command of the Lord. See Leviticus, chapters 24 to 27; St. James, chapter 5.
Let your president, your two U.S. senators, and your congressman know how you feel about this plan. Why starve while our food rots for lack of a place to sell it?

Black Power? The rise in so-called "prosperity gospel" Christianity among New African communities is a reaction to the economic domination of the captive nation, under the New Jim Crow regime of artificial poverty. The ideology of "prosperity" is tailored to invidual self-interest, and perpetuates the idea that only those who are "worthy" are capable of not spiritual riches, but material wealth. Many "Prosperity Gospel" churches are found to support the wars of the USA, and are silent about the manifestations of the New Jim Crow. A stereotypical example of a "Prosperity" Preacher is Creflo Dollar.

* "Latest Evidence Disproves SFPD Chief Suhr’s Version of the Killing of Amilcar Perez-Lopez; Outraged Mission Community to Hold Vigil and March" [Justice4Amilcar@)]:
What: Interfaith vigil and march in response to latest evidence that Amilcar Perez Lopez was murdered by SFPD
When: Friday, April 24, 6pm
Where: Beginning on Folsom Street, between 24th and 25th Streets
This Friday morning, April 24th, lawyers representing Amilcar Perez-Lopez and his family in Guatemala will file a lawsuit in the Northern District Federal Court in San Francisco seeking accountability for the killing of Amilcar by San Francisco plainclothes officers  on February 26th. The Federal Complaint will reveal the true facts behind Amilcar’s heinous death, completely at odds with Chief Greg Suhr’s story. “Those of us in the Mission neighborhood know that the facts are not as the police have reported to the media. We know that the truth about how Amilcar was killed by the police will be revealed when the lawsuit is filed.
“This Friday we will gather at the site of his murder on Folsom Street to demand justice for Amilcar, for other victims of racist police violence, and for the Mission District.” said spokesperson for the march and neighbor Florencia Rojo.
Amilcar Perez-Lopez was assassinated in a hail of police bullets three doors away from  his Mission apartment on Folsom Street at 9:45 p.m. on February 26th. Soon after, SFPD Chief Greg Suhr blamed Amilcar for his own death at the hands of plainclothes officers. As in each recent shooting case in San Francisco – Alejandro Nieto on March 21, 2014, O’Shaine Evans on October 7, 2014, and Amilcar on February 26th, Chief Suhr claimed the shootings were justified based on his officers’ “reasonable fear” for their safety.
The evidence revealed on Friday morning, and in particular the autopsy findings, will unequivocally confirm that the officers were in no threat of any danger as Amilcar Perez Lopez was not attacking the officers—but rather fleeing from the officers after having dropped the knife. Most importantly, this evidence will unequivocally confirm that the killing of Amilcar was absolutely unjustified.
The SFPD’s official version, which was announced to the public by Chief Suhr, is a fabrication intended to shield the shooting officers from prosecution.
“We in the neighborhood knew Amilcar as a hard working, young Guatemalan immigrant struggling to build a decent life for himself in this country. He worked multiple jobs in the construction and the restaurant trades. Despite how hard Amilcar worked, he sent money to his family in Guatemala to help support them. Amilcar was a good human being, a good neighbor and a wonderful provider for his family. There was no reason to shoot him. We will march on Friday with families of other victims of police shootings to demand that the truth come out and justice be done!” said Eduardo Roman, a co-worker and friend of Amilcar.  According to march organizer, Father Richard Smith of St. John’s Episcopal Church, “There is a prevalent death culture in the SFPD. They view their mission in our community as a them-against-us situation.  I fear for my parishioners and all the innocent youth of color who live with a constant fear that on any day a police bullet may take their young lives.  “I am urging all concerned members of our community to join us for this Friday’s vigil and march to stand up for Amilcar and for justice.”
Events and locations:
• Interfaith vigil with words, music, song, and native dance. On Folsom Street, between 24th and 25th (the site of the killing of Amilcar by SFPD), 6pm
• March to Mission Police Station
• Testimonies by families who have lost loved ones to SFPD violence. At Mission Police Station (17th and Valencia Streets)
• Presentation and conversation with the legal team and free community dinner. At St. John the Evangelist Episcopal Church on 5th Street and Julian Avenue, between Mission and Valencia)
• Native Aztec dancers in ceremonial costume
• Clergy in religious garb
• Original art and banners by local Mission artists
• Words, music, songs, chants, native drumming

Great Meadow Correctional Facility, 11739 State Route 22, P.O. Box 51, Comstock, NY 12821-0051
Herman Bell writes:
I was part of the black struggle for self-determination movement. It's now widely known from documents revealed by the Congressional 1976 Church Committee Report (which was not admitted as evidence during my trial) that a secret U.S. domestic repression campaign to stifle black political aspirations for self-determination - called Cointelpro - existed to neutralize and discredit black organizations and black leaders; the Black Panther Party was high on this list of targeted black organizations. Because of relentless covertly-joint FBI and local police attacks on the BPP, I went underground in 1971. Under Cointelpro, "frame-ups," secret deals, coercion, threats, intimidations, and planted news articles were all part of its strategy to criminalize the Black Liberation Movement. Given these daunting circumstances, one either went underground or left the country - I chose to stay.
On 2 September 1973, I was captured and illegally extradited to New York City on charges of having killed two NYC policemen. Along with four co-defendants, we pled not guilty. No eyewitness identified me as one of the assailants, and the prosecutor produced no eyewitnesses. I was not even put in a "lineup." The jury was unable to reach a verdict during the first trial. Torture by law enforcement personnel, coerced witnesses, perjured testimony, manufactured and circumstantial material evidence in conjunction with prosecutorial and judicial misconduct are what persuaded the jury to convict 3 out of the 5 of us at the end of our second trial. (We were sentenced to 25-years-to-life.) Years of state and federal appeals have been unsuccessful, and I am writing this not to make light of the charges against me or of the conviction. Rather, I am writing to explain the conditions as I knew them then. The decades of the '60s and '70s were turbulent, and I regret that there was loss of life resulting from those turbulent times. One can object strongly to the tactics employed back then (and that cuts both ways) without denying that the motivation was not self-interest, but was a political will to counter state misconduct and bring about political change. Many people from those days have moved on, have been forgiven, have been allowed to go on and live productive lives (while others were sent to prison and are still carrying that burden). The past is behind me now, and I wish to move on.

* "Corporation Literally Served Inmates Trash" (2015-03-30) [] [begin excerpt]:
The privately contracted food vendor, which services “healthcare institutions, universities and school districts, stadiums and arenas, and businesses in 22 countries around the world,” has come under fire for serving contaminated food and engaging in gross misconduct in prison facilities statewide. After maggots and fly larvae were found near a meal-serving line, at least 150 inmates were quarantined for symptoms characteristic of the flu. One inmate sued the company for serving spoiled meat and moldy bread. In other instances, the company breached contract by simply failing to provide enough food.
But the company, which has fed inmates dog food, worms, and scraps of food from old meals, maintains a stronghold on correctional food service in Michigan. Despite threats to terminate its contract, Gov. Rick Snyder (R) won’t let go of the company, which claims it will save taxpayers $12-16 million. Prior to hiring Aramark, Michigan refused to partner with private food vendors that could not realistically save the state money in the long-run.

TreeSpirit: Campaign against the 100,000+-tree clearcut in Berkeley & Oakland, CA
This clearcutting and poisoning is ongoing in the SF Bay Area, for years.  This, in our era of human-caused global warming when we need more mature trees of all species, not so many fewer.  In the East Bay hills, as elsewhere, this will mean destruction of hundreds upon hundreds of acres of precious animal habitat.  And then applying thousands of gallons of the toxic herbicides which will poison not just tree stumps, but then unavoidably the land, the rodents, the owls and raptors that feed on rodents, the groundwater, and inevitably us humans who are connected to it all.  Didn’t we learn all this decades ago? Eucalyptus have thrived in California for over 150 years, long enough to integrate into our ecosystem, and provide numerous and substantial benefits including habitat for numerous birds, mammals, insects and other species. An agenda to kill all eucalyptus, and exploitation of fear of fire, has coalesced into a coalition advocating the destruction of over 1,000 acres of productive, carbon-storing, shade-producing eucalyptus, pine and acacia forest.

Petition: "Tell elected officials not to sell our forests and wildlands to the highest bidder"
Photo by Andy Porter showing Pasayten-Wilderness in the State of Washington.
In March, the U.S. Senate voted to pave the way for selling tracts of our national forests, wilderness areas and wildlife refuges to states that are eager to open them up to sale or lease for oil and gas drilling, mining and logging, jeopardzing public access.
This move only furthers a disturbing trend in the war on our public lands.
Until last week, this state land-grab fever had been confined to about a dozen state legislatures in the West. Now this extreme idea, propelled by extractive industries, has infected our national government in Washington.
We must stop this madness before it takes hold.
Sign the petition to tell our elected officials not to sell America’s public lands for development.
Petition text:
Do not sell America's shared public lands to the highest bidder.
Elected Officials,
Eleven western states, including Alaska, have introduced bills to their legislatures this year that could turn our shared public lands--national forests, parks, refuges, wilderness areas and more--over to the states to sell.
I do not support the idea of selling America's shared public lands to the highest bidder.
I am sorry to see this radical idea has also infected the U.S. Congress. In late March, the U.S. Senate voted to pave the way for the sale, transfer or exchange of public lands to state and local governments. Similar efforts in the 1970s and 80s were soundly defeated. It was a bad idea then and it's a bad idea now.
To pay for managing millions of additional acres, states would resort to privatizing or auctioning these lands for drilling, mining, and logging. Because these lands could be owned solely by extractive industries to maximize profits, Americans, such as myself, could lose access to some of our most treasured natural areas to hunt, camp, fish, hike and watch wildlife.
Our children and grandchildren deserve to experience America's forests, wildlife refuges and wilderness areas. Help us stop this bad idea from becoming a reality.

Headline news topics, as publicized by the 5 monopolist media agencies dominating the USA market, are simply propaganda, utilizing even fabricated incidents to contribute to the narrative as directed by dictates from not only the DHS family of domestic security agencies, but also from the USA military. The following shows how even a big-time event like the capture of Saddam Hussein is fabricated for the sake of propaganda:
* "Iraqi interpreter reveals new details about Saddam's capture" (2015-04-12, [] [begin excerpt]: Firas Ahmad, a 41-year-old Iraqi interpreter, has given al-Araby al-Jadeed details, previously secret, about this period. Ahmad recently returned to Iraq briefly, five years after leaving for the US. He was granted US citizenship under a bill approved by the US Congress in 2007 to grant special immigration visas leading to citizenship for Iraqis who worked for the US army in Iraq. Ahmad gave al-Araby al-Jadeed new details about the capture of the late Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in December 2003. "Two days after Saddam was captured, a celebration was held for US commanders at the Rehab Palace. I was there to translate for Iraqi politicians expected to attend the event. While there I learned Saddam was not found in a hole as claimed by the official US account," the Iraqi explained. Ahmad said Saddam was actually found in a reinforced underground bunker beneath a modest-looking rural house, that Saddam had turned into his headquarters. The US captured one of Saddam's bodyguards who revealed its location. Reportedly, the bunker contained weapons, a bed, a prayer mat, a copy of the Quran, dry food, and tobacco. The dictator did not resist and opened the door as dozens of soldiers were trying to kick it down. US soldiers then incapacitated him by throwing knockout gas grenades. A US army captain told Ahmad the picture of Saddam in a hole was taken after his capture.
The hole was found near the house. It is similar to other holes found in homes in areas above the Tigris river, and was used to keep water pumps in. Saddam's capture was fabricated to humiliate him. US soldiers also apparently altered Saddam's appearance while he was unconscious, before taking pictures and sending them to Washington. Saddam was captured in what US forces called Operation Red Dawn, near the Iraqi city of al-Dour in Salahuddin province. Firas Ahmad also told al-Araby al-Jadeed about his experience before he left Baghdad to travel to Washington via Erbil. The interpreter worked for the 101st Airborne Division of the US army between 2003 and 2009. [end excerpt]

As Hillary supports war and mass death, and austerity for the poor, for the domestic fascists, this isn't good enough, and shows just how far out these self-identified "conservatives" are. On Sunday, April 19th, a man was seen in the Vallejo CostCo making a big scene. He wore a t-shirt "revealing" a message that "Hillary is a Communist", alongside an image of a document that proved it. He was yelling and pointing at his shirt. He claimed to be part of an anti-Left surveillance group with some common members with a local Tea Party organization. Nonetheless, here is more "proof":

Now they take a handout wherever they can get it.
The Reconstruction Finance Corp. has just issued its 1932-1933 diet schedule for anemic U.S. industries. The banks were the sickest, so they got the most: $2.1 billion out of a total of $4.1 billion listed as “authorized and outstanding commitments.” Other credit loan organizations got $670 million. The insurance companies got only $115 million. The railroads, $412 million. That makes $3.3 billion, or over 80 percent of the total that went directly to big business from the federal treasury.
That was just a beginning. Under other aids to recovery, other billions will be ladled into the mouths of these very individualistic big businessmen who, five years ago, were yelling their heads off about “No government interference with business.”
Then they were making profits. Like greedy pigs with both feet in the trough of private industry, they wanted to gobble down everything in sight. Now, profit-hungry, they have put both feet in the public treasury trough and are yelling their heads off for government funds.
These bank presidents and railroad magnates are as ignorant as newborns and as self-opinionated as morons. Instead of subsidies they need a nurse.

Central America, an "Economic Sacrifice Zone"
The Global Drug Policy Observatory has recently published a great report linking the militarization in Central America to the US war on drugs
* "Justifying Militarisation: 'Counter-Narcotics' and 'Counter Narco-Terrorism' " []:
Summary: Three inter-related developments within US foreign policy have emerged in recent years: the militarisation of Central America states under the auspices of confronting drug trafficking organisations and improving human security; the deployment of militarised DEA agents overseas; and the emergence of "counter narco-terrorism" as a means of justifying such policies.  Linking these developments is the use by US officials of "counter narco-terrorism" as a justification for chosen policies. In Afghanistan, FAST has been touted as such a programme - regardless of the fact that Washington does not officially consider the Taliban a terrorist group. In Central America, officials have publicly offered the same explanation for their policies without providing any substantiating evidence. A strenuous effort to generate such a connection appears to be underway, whether any link exists in reality or not. It is too easy to say "counter-narcotics" operations are failing or misguided. Washington's policies in Central America may well have disastrous results for many, but through the maintenance of a certain status quo and the improvement of the climate for business and investment, they are undoubtedly a success for others.

"It's an extremely serious situation that is happening that did not happen. Has always been student protest but before repression was academic type, were expelled, etc., which was also unreasonable, but now are murderous, "said analyst Thomas Andino.
To Andino, the value of life in Honduras has been lost and persecution, criminalization and murder against students is a form of state terrorism against young people.
Student protests are the order of the day in Honduras in which the students demand better conditions in schools to receive the bread of knowledge. Another action to destabilize the student struggle was the decision by the educational authorities of the Normal School of Tegucigalpa Joint Pedro Nufio for eight days to expel four of his students participating in the protests.
About this reality of education in Honduras, Radio Progreso (RP) spoke with Tomas Andino (TA), Honduran analyst, former deputy and independent consultant. [end excerpt]

These anti-poaching squads are made up of wildlife officers – and sometimes soldiers and police – who are funded and supported by WWF, and who could not continue without its crucial support.
Nearly 9,000 people have written to WWF, urging it to take action to ensure that its funds are not used to violate the rights of the Baka and their neighbors. Last year, villagers urged WWF to suspend its funding.
WWF initially reacted angrily to letters from Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights, reporting the abuses, denouncing the campaign as “absurd”, “finger-pointing” and “self-serving”. More recently, WWF admitted that “we are aware that the general disadvantage suffered by the Baka is also prevalent in their dealings with ecoguards, police and courts.”

It is not Russia doing that, it is Kiev, on orders from the USA, which is ready to fight Russia until the last drop of Ukrainian blood. Don't be a slave to America. Stop killing your Slavic brothers and sisters who are not even in the war, they are just living in apartments, shopping in stores, using public transport, going to school, going to hospital and Kiev is bombing all those places.

* "Skrzypczak: With my ass not policies. Recall everything I said about Ukraine" (2015-04-17,, machine-translated at [].
Polish General Waldemar Skrzypczak supported Ukraine’s killings in Donbass, but when the Ukrainian Parliament adopted a law glorifying the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), which had murdered his uncle as well as 100,000 Poles during the World War II, Waldemar Skrzypczak repudiated his support for Ukraine.
General Waldemar Skrzypczak, former commander of the Polish Army (2006-09) and former Polish Deputy Minister of Defence (2012-13), said in an interview with the newspaper Gazeta Prawna (GP), “I repudiate everything that I said earlier about supporting Ukraine”. He believed that there isn’t any reason to believe that Ukraine is a friend of Poland. He came to that conclusion after the Verkhovna Rada passed a law glorifying the UPA, who were responsible for killing 100,000 Polish civilians during the Volyn Massacre of 1943-44. What’s worse, the vote on the law occurred right after Polish President Bronisław Komorowski gave effusive compliments to Kiev. Skrzypczak told GP, “The UPA killed my uncle, nailed him to the door of a shed, and he died only after lingering there for three days. Their savagery was beyond human imagination. Even the Nazis didn’t go as low as the Ukrainians did. Besides this, the murder of Poles by Ukrainians began not in 1943, but rather in September 1939. How many know that when our soldiers retreated to Hungary and Romania, armed Ukrainian gangs attacked them? I’d like to know what future Ukrainian President Poroshenko intends to build and on what basis… on bloodthirsty nationalism? It’s horrible. Ukrainians have to rid themselves of nationalism; otherwise, it’d be very difficult, almost impossible, for Poles to cooperate with them”.
Earlier, Skrzypczak had said, “The Ukraine needs weapons”. As aired in January 2015 on Polskie Radio dla Zagranicy (Polish Radio External Service), he said that the Ukrainians needed weapons for offensive operations, particularly tanks, “We have surplus tanks that we can repair and provide to the Ukraine. However, we must give them ammunition along with the tanks, as they’re going to have to be able to fight Russian tanks”. He also added that the sooner Ukraine gets weapons, the better, because the strengthening the Ukrainian army would quickly jumpstart peace negotiations, because sanctions “don’t impress the Kremlin”. Skrzypczak noted, “Ukraine lacks the military capability to defeat the separatists”.

* "WHAT OBAMA’S UKRAINIAN STOOGES DID" (2014-12, by Eric Zuesse) [] [begin excerpt]:
Here are highlights from a one-hour-and-thirty-seven-minute video documenting the ethnic cleansing or attempted genocide against the residents in southeast Ukraine, the Ukrainian area that had voted overwhelmingly for the man whom Obama overthrew on February 22nd. If the voters in that region were to stay in the then-existing territory of Ukraine, no nationwide Ukrainian vote (such as for Ukraine’s President) would favor the pro-U.S, anti-Russian, Government, that Obama had installed in February of this year. Even if new leaders would be elected, the government would then go back to being predominantly pro-Russian, as it had been under Yanukovych. That’s why Obama wanted the residents there slaughtered until enough escaped to Russia so as to eliminate enough of them from the voter-rolls in Ukraine so as to enable Obama’s Ukrainian coup d’etat to succeed (i.e., be stable) on a long-term basis. So, that’s what was tried; and one chooses for carrying out such a purpose racist fascists — or nazis — whose particular hatred is focussed against ethnic Russians: against the people who lived in the pro-Yanukovych region of Ukraine, Ukraine’s southeast (Novorossiya).

Dmitriy Yarosh is the founder and head of one of Ukraine’s two racist-fascist, or nazi, parties, Right Sector. He is officially the #2 Ukrainian national-security official [], working directly under Andreiy Paribuiy, who heads Ukraine’s other nazi party (the party that used to call itself Ukraine’s “Social Nationalist Party,” after Hitler’s National Socialist Party, but which the CIA renamed “Svoboda,” meaning “Freedom,” so as to make it more acceptable to Americans).
However, Yarosh has turned out to be Ukraine’s actual leader, despite his not being officially at the top. His nominal boss, Paribuiy, had been appointed by Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who was chosen on February 4th (18 days prior to the coup) to be Ukraine’s new leader, by Victoria Nuland [], who was appointed by Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, who were appointed by Barack Obama (the actual ruler of the new Ukraine).
As Yarosh said this past March in an interview with Newsweek [], he has “been training paramilitary troops for almost 25 years,” and his “divisions are constantly growing all over Ukraine, but over 10,000 people for sure.” More recently, in October, a pro-Government Ukrainian site interviewed Yarosh [] and he mentioned specifically a “DUC,” or Volunteer Ukrainian Corps of fighters. He was then asked “How many soldiers in DUC?” and he answered, “About seven thousand men.” These would be his real military force, by far the biggest private army in Ukraine. So, in his private files are everyone’s individual background and skill-level as a “paramilitary,” or far-right mercenary, and they all respect and obey him as the top man. [end excerpt]

Security officials estimate that Israel may decide to unfreeze the sale of advanced weapons systems to Ukraine and to Georgia, who are considered enemies of Russia. This be response to the Russian move to remove the embargo on the sale of SS 300 for Iran."
Israel already support Al-Qaeda/ISIS, hospitals of Israel treat thugs of ISIS. Airplanes of Israel bombing army of Syria in order to help terrorists from Al-Qaeda/ISIS. Israel supply terrorists of ISIS by weapons, using puppet regimes from Gulf.
In Ukraine citizens of Israel created "Right sector" and support fascist coup. After February 2014 citizens of Israel created most part of fascist battalions. Ukrainian and international Jews organizations secretly or openly supply these battalions by medicine, money, weapons. Citizens of Israel took active part in the fascist coup and now are members of fascist battalions. Some of them gave interviews to the Israel media, there they whitewashed their crimes.
So, fascist state Israel act by own citizens in the Ukraine and already aiding Kiev junta and its thugs. Israel threat to sell weapons to Ukraine just be show openly that this fascist regime is customer of war and chaos in Ukraine.

85 year old Yelena Vatutina said, that she had sent a letter to the Russian government with an application.
“I have to think about grandchildren and grand-grandchildren of my father, how they will come to the grandfather’s grave, when such a terrible situation take place in the Ukraine, - she said. – There is a memorial in Mytishchi, devoted to Vatutin. So there we want to bury the remains, that are sacred for us”.
Vatutin is now buried in the Mariinsky Park, Kiev, in front of the Verkhovna Rada building. “That is where the outrages and fights during the Maidan took place, - the daughter of the glorious commander reminds. – To tell the truth, the former Kiev Mayor called me and said: “Yelena Nikolayevna, do not worry, everything is alright”. However, you know, the current Ukrainian government are difficult to believe. Today it’s alright, and tomorrow – the Maidan happens”.
The Kiev government is not going to dismantle the monument to the military leader in the Mariinsky Park where he is buried, noted Yelena. “It is out of question, no one ever told me about that, - she said. – Today they are not going to dismantle, but tomorrow they may change their mind. My father died of a banderite hand, however, the present government idealizes Bandera”.
Yelena Nikolayevna hopes the transportation of the grave will take place in a short of time.

Apartments of Ukrainians will be seized in return for municipal services’ debts. This decision has been taken at the Governmental level: in the Ministry for Regional Development, Construction, Housing Maintenance and Utilities of Ukraine. The new living rules have been announced by Natalia Khotsyanovskaya, the head of the Life Support Economics Department of the Ministry for Regional Development.
“As of today, there is a law on court enforcement actions and a pretty wide range of influence methods on defaulters. It provides for them: collection of defaulters’ money, in the first instance, movable assets and, moreover, the article 63 of this law provides for the collection of your apartment, your house and, in the first instance, land plot,” according to her statement.
Khotsyanovskaya has explained that the Ministry is prepared to proceed to more tough measures in order to make the defaulters pay. According to the latest information of the Ministry for Regional Development, the debt for consumed utility services in Ukraine totals to 13 bln UAH, and it is growing every day. That is not surprising: having the monthly pension of 1200 UAH, a pensioner has to pay for his apartment and utility services from 800 to 1000 UAH. Public sector employees are not in a better situation, and, in addition, Poroshenko has announced again mass dismissals because “during the war, people must search for a job themselves, and the state shall not support anyone.” Considering the coming from April hot and cold water cost increase, the majority of Kiev residents are at risk of losing their houses.
Municipal authorities have already warned that residents of Kiev having over 10 thousand UAH of debt for housing and utility services may lose their apartments. The idea of the Cabinet Council to deprive Ukrainians of their houses has been given warm encouragement by the head of the National Bank. Valeria Gontareva announced that only the disposition of assets used as security for foreign currency credits would allow for the existence of the Ukrainian banking system. “If you can’t pay then give this apartment to the bank. That is right. How can the banking system exist?” she added.

He made that statement in the air of TV channel 112-Ukraine.  “Kalashnikov’s death is the evidence of the fact that neutralization of one’s opponents is generally recognized in Ukraine — more that suing them in accordance with the laws”, — Herashchenko stated. According to numerous claims of Kalashnikov’s relatives and friends, recently he repeatedly received threats of violence because of his political views, particularly, owing to his appeal to widely celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War. The politician had also been calling the present-day Ukrainian authorities “Nazis”.
Besides, a page devoted to Kalashnikov had been published in the net, on which he was referred to as “separatist, provocateur, militants’ accomplice”, “the person dealing with terrorists and militants”. The address of his apartment, near which he was killed, was also posted on this page.
MP of the 5th calling from the Party of Regions Oleg Kalashnikov was murdered in the evening of April 15 in Kiev. This is the fourth tragic death among the leaders of the party in the recent months.

Counselor of the Minister of the Interior, today an MP, Anton Herashchenko founded website “Myrotrvorets” (Peacekeeper). At the first sight it is a typical garbage collector, where all kinds of names are posted of the people, who are alleged criminals.
Certainly, they had never been charged with any crimes.
You can find a lot of such rubbish sites in the net, but “Myrotvorets” differs from them first of all by the fact that the site's partners are state bodies – Security Service, Ministry of the Interior, the General Staff, border guards and the penal system.
The mission of “Myrotvorets” is in detection of terrorists, militants, mercenaries, and their accomplices as well as criminals and traitors.
Does it sound seriously? “Myrotvorets” must possess a numerous personnel of professional investigators, scouts, experts in criminology, in order to declare the goals so ambitious! It is quite a deal – to gather the evidence base necessary to charge a person with aiding militants or war crimes!
The materials posted as “evidence” on “Myrotvorets” are not only unconvincing – they produce the impression that their authors were absolutely inadequate, when they posted their creative work with the purpose of “aid to the law-enforcing bodies”.
Among those listed on the site – “separatists”, “provocateurs” and “collaborationists of the militants”. Kalashnikov, killed yesterday, was also on the list. It is a known fact that he was engaged in the preparation of Victory day celebration in Kiev.
Antifascist Skorokhodov was also on the list. The author of the well-known blog denouncing the crimes of Nazi regime in Ukraine Myroslava Berdnyk is also on the list.
A whole lot of ordinary people, who express their attitude to the regime in social networks, are also in that list, including those, who simply share cartoons and banners.
Do you remember the fervor, with which the new “honest” authorities denounced the terror act in Paris, when Charlie Hebdo cartoonists were murdered? Nevertheless those Ukrainian citizens, who dare to joke, these very authorities call “twats” and persecute.
Collections of posted pictures serve as the evidence of “criminal activities”. Now you can pass your own judgment in regard to the counselor of the Ministry, who promised that “every twat will receive what he earned”, and the command of the law-enforcement structures, listed as the partners of the website.
Here I will reproduce the “evidence” of separatism, terrorism, collaborationism and treason as they are viewed by “Myrotvorets”.
– Any photo with Russian flag on the background or with it is considered a crime.

– Posting of photographs of Ukrainian Nazis with characteristics symbols is considered a crime.

– Posting of Western politicians' quotes, which are not complementary in regard to Ukraine, is considered a crime.

– Posting of cartoons featuring the personalities belonging to the new “honest” authorities, as well as any jolly pictures on the subject of European choice is considered a crime.

– Having an antifascist and anti-Banderist blog or publishing similarly oriented essays in the media is considered a crime.

9 days ago, at 12th April 2015 in the town oKostantinovka unknown local tore the flag of Ukraine from the local hospital and tried to burn it. Now the man who did it, facing three years in prison.
I want to remind that more than one month ago drunken Kiev junta military in APC knocked down on the footpath woman with two children. Oldest child died on the spot, her aunt and sister were taken to hospital, previously was reported that the woman died in hospital. Locals on the same day requested from the occupants to get out of town. Occupants in response began firing towards unarmed citizens. Since the beginning of protest the Kiev junta arresting people in order to intimidate the local population.
Girl and aunt who were traumatized due to collision with APC are still in the hospital. APC driver, who was drunk when knocked down a woman and two girls on the sidewalk, was released on bail. This means that the main culprit of the accident can walk freely in the territory of the occupied town. Most likely this fascist could simply leave the town in which he committed a war crime. At the same time local residents, who demanded the trial of criminals, are kidnapped and tortured by Ukrainian fascists. Kiev junta follows the instructions and experience of US in the occupied territories.
It is possible that a man who tore the flag of Ukraine from the hospital, is a relative or friend, for the woman and girls who were knocked down by drunk thugs of Kiev junta. Because of the criminal attitude of Kiev junta to the victims, the man tore the Ukrainian flag and tried to burn it. This man by new laws of Kiev junta faces up to 3 years in prison.

In fact, President Poroshenko, who was ‘elected’ in an election among only far-right candidates that was held only outside Donbass and mainly in the northwest [], actually went to Odessa on 13 November 2014 and he insulted the people there by saying, in a nationally televised “us” versus “them” tirade that clearly left the vast majority of Odessans as being in the “they” category []: “We will have our jobs. They will not. We will have our pensions. They will not. We will have care for children, for people, and retirees. They will not. Our children will go to schools and kindergartens. Theirs will hole up in basements [from our bombs].”
And that’s what he actually did; he specifically targeted schools []. A retired Ukrainian general whose sympathies had been with Hitler’s troops displayed the nerve to respond to a Ukrainian soldier’s statement that his function was ethnic cleansing, by saying on a U.S.-funded television station in Ukraine [], “I want to offer the Ukrainian artillerists medals, to those who shell the city [Donetsk], the houses and the civilian population, … for they [artillerists] have deserved it [medals]. … The shelling there is done as intimidation, … not just object destruction, but intimidation [to get the population to flee to nearby Russia].
In other words: by bombing and shelling the schools, hospitals, etc., in Donetsk, Lugansk and the surrounding regions, that land will become uninhabitable or intolerable, so that even the survivors will need to flee to nearby Russia. This way, the Western aristocrats who want to buy dirt-cheap access to that region’s natural resources (and such privatization of state assets is demanded ‘reform’ of Ukraine by the U.S.-controlled IMF) will not be bothered by the locals who object to the ripping-up of the land on which they live.

The voluntary mobilization into the army of the Donetsk People’s Republic has been fulfilled at 110%, DPR’s leader Alexander Zakharchenko said in an interview with the Donetsk News Agency on Tuesday.
"At the moment, the number of volunteers is higher than our capacities to arm them. People see what is going on and assess the situation as it is and understand that the war will continue at Kiev’s will. They are defending their land," Zakharchenko said.
Volunteers started being mobilized in the Donetsk republic on February 9. In mid-March, Zakharchenko said every day up to 200 volunteers join the ranks of militias.
More than 4,000 people are ready to fight along with the territorial defence units and form the second defence line of the republic in case of combat actions, the DPR leader said.

Observers from the Joint Center for Control and Cooperation of the ceasefire saw two Ukrainian tanks accompanied by two white off-road vehicles, presumably Land Cruiser 200s, with markings like those of the OSCE Observer Mission. Most likely, the Ukrainian side hoped that this provocation would cause the vehicles to come under attack, sucker-punching the DPR. This could give rise to accusations of the DPR disrupting the Minsk Agreement, giving them an excuse to escalate the conflict,” Basurin said.

Ukrainian Armed Forces eliminate Ukrainian "volunteer" battalions forcing them towards the DPR positions, the DPR Defense Ministry spokesperson Eduard Basurin said.
“The official report of the OSCE observer mission for 14 April, and the conclusion of the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination of the Ceasefire observed the OUN (Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists) battalion moving its positions one kilometre to the east near Peski and Zhabunki. At that time, the battalion formally came under the command of the 93rd mechanized brigade, so, we see that the brigade command pushed the discredited nationalists towards our positions. Thus, they solved two problems… eliminating unwanted fire that provoked retaliatory fire from us, and the subsequent charges of ceasefire violations,” – Eduard Basurin said. He emphasised that the DPR army continues to observe clashes between regular units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and extremist “volunteer” battalions.
“Earlier, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry repeatedly stated that all ‘volunteer’ battalions, without exception, already part of the regular forces or a part of the National Guard. The situation at the contact line indicates that either the reassignment was de jure but not de facto, or that Ukrainian commanders knowingly give criminal orders,” – Basurin added.

The second wave came directly from Tibet. Aiming for weakening the influence of Mongols and Manchurs in the region, the tsar conferred the title of Bandido Khambo Lama on the priors of Gusinoozersk Datsan to acknowledge them as leaders of Buryat Buddhism. Thus, Buryat tradition became officially independent of the Mongolian Church. In 1741, Empress Elizabeth issued a decree that recognized the Lamaistic belief in Buryatia and authorized establishing of 11 monasteries (datsans) with 150 lamas on the staff. This is considered the date of the official recognition of Buddhism in Russia.There were schools opened at datsans and books printed. [end excerpt]

“The U.S. must show the leadership necessary to establish and protect a new order that holds the promise of convincing potential competitors that they need not aspire to a greater role or pursue a more aggressive posture to protect their legitimate interests…..We must, however, be mindful that…Russia will remain the strongest military power in Eurasia and the only power in the world with the capability of destroying the United States.” ("The Wolfowitz Doctrine", the original version of the Defense Planning Guidance, authored by Under Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, leaked to the New York Times on March 7, 1992)
“For America, the chief geopolitical prize is Eurasia…and America’s global primacy is directly dependent on how long and how effectively its preponderance on the Eurasian continent is sustained.”
("THE GRAND CHESSBOARD: American Primacy And It’s Geostrategic Imperatives" pg. 30, 1997 by Zbigniew Brzezinski)
The Obama administration realizes that if it can’t find an alternate source of gas for Europe, then its blockade of Russia
will fail and the EU-Russia alliance will grow stronger. And if the EU-Russia alliance grows stronger, then US attempts to extend its tentacles into Asia and become a major player in the world’s most prosperous region will also fail leaving Washington to face a dismal future in which the steady erosion of its power and prestige is a near certainty.
The problem is, the strategy hasn’t worked and now the US is embroiled in a confrontation with Moscow that is a higher priority than the Middle East project. (The split between US elites on this matter has been interesting to watch, with the Obama-Brzezinski crowd on one side and the McCain-neocon crowd on the other.)
Check this out from Pepe Escobar []: “Russia and China are deeply committed to integrating Iran into their Eurasian vision. Iran may finally be admitted as a full member of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) at the upcoming summer summit in Russia. That implies a full-fledged security/commercial/political partnership involving Russia, China, Iran and most Central Asian ’stans’. Iran is already a founding member of the Chinese-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB); that means financing for an array of New Silk Road-related projects bound to benefit the Iranian economy. AIIB funding will certainly merge with loans and other assistance for infrastructure development related to the Chinese-established Silk Road Fund…”
Get the picture? Eurasian integration is already done-deal and there’s nothing the US can do to stop it.Washington needs to rethink its approach. Stop the meddling and antagonism, rebuild relations through trade and mutual trust, and accept the inevitability of imperial decline.Asia’s star is rising just as America’s is setting. Deal with it.

* "Yemen: The Little Army That Could" (2015-04-21, [] [begin excerpt]:
The Houthi rebels belong to a branch of Shia Islam known as Zaidism, and make up almost a third of the country. They have ruled the north of the country for almost a thousand years, until the 1960s. The rise of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula –whom they oppose- and their long-held feelings that the central government wasn’t sharing fairly the country’s resources led to their taking up arms and overtaking the government.
Considered a threat to the regime stability the Yemeni government waged brutal war against the Houthis in their stronghold in Sa’ada province, in the north of Yemen. Although their leader, Hussein al Houthi, was killed in the first war, he was replaced by his brother and current leader, Abdul Malik.
The Houthis rose to power because most Yemenis want a strong leader, with a clear vision about where the country should go. Both brothers were able to provide that vision that essentially encompasses the desire for government accountability, an end to corruption, fair fuel prices, job opportunities for ordinary citizens and a more fair distribution of resources.
The Houthis have been shown to be well organized and reliable. Since taking control of Sa’ada, their birthplace, they have made it one of the most peaceful and well-run areas in Yemen. The sun of gunfire has almost ceased now in Sa’dah, the Sa’ada Governorate capital city. Residents have electricity for most of the day and reliable water supply.
Since declaring control of Yemen on February 6, the Houthis have been advancing steadily south, in spite of heavy losses and constant bombardment by Saudi Arabia and its allies that have provoked a serious humanitarian crisis in the country.

Republic of India
* "Indian Communism and Its Futures" (2015-04-20, [] [begin excerpt]:
The beach at Visakhapatnam, the largest city in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, was a sea of red this Sunday. Over a hundred thousand communist activists and sympathizers of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), CPI-M, gathered to conclude its 21st Party Congress. The CPI-M is the largest and most significant Left party in India, although it has been in close alliance with other Left parties with a new emphasis on the creation of a platform of Left Unity.
The CPI-M gathered at a difficult time for the Indian people. Half of India’s 1.2 billion people live in conditions of deprivation. Government policy over the past three decades – inspired by the neoliberal policy slate – has produced a hostile environment for survival. A quarter of a million farmers and peasants have committed suicide across the country, a direct consequence of capitalist agriculture and an adverse global trade order. The current government of the Hindu Right is not only the complete inheritor of such harsh economic policies, but it has the added disadvantage of being culturally suffocating. Attacks on freedom of expression and speech as well as a spectrum of threats against cultural and religious difference have begun to mark the social landscape.
During the Congress, the municipal polls took place in Kolkata, capital of West Bengal, which for thirty years was the bastion of the Communists. Over the course of the past five years, the atmosphere in West Bengal has been corroded. The party that took power from the Left Front, the Trinamul Congress (TMC), has more iron in its soul than humanity. Violence against the Left activists and sympathizers has been commonplace. Not long ago, for instance, TMC thugs went on the rampage in Bhatar, Bardhwan district in West Bengal. They caught a few CPI-M workers, killing forty-eight year old Mangal Hembram.
It is in this environment of extreme state hostility that the Left has to re-build its momentum. Matters are no less difficult in other parts of India. Building a Left is not the same as conducting a seminar. It requires a great deal of courage to confront the congealed institutions of Power, Property and Privilege. Errors shall be natural, as will a loss of hope. What this Congress of the CPI-M showed, however, is that millions of Indians are ready to continue to defend the rights of the working-class and to imagine an alternative for all of India. “When a woman holds the Red Flag,” said CPI-M leader Brinda Karat at the concluding rally, “no force can take it away from her. The Red Flag will be there in every place where adivasi (tribal) land is being snatched away. Today we renew our commitment to take forward the Left alternative to the people of India.”

The People's Republic of China has a "uphold science" principle, however it does not persecute those who refuse to follow it. A commonly repeated falsification by those who are ignorant to the truth of China is that Christianity is oppressed in China. This is not true. There is two state organizations for Christianity in China. A Protestant organization, the Three Self Church, and a Catholic organization, the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association. Those organizations are in charge of administrating China's churches. These organizations are self-governing and the main government of China has not and will not edit any doctrine or Christian values.
State owned churches may even be preferable to privately owned churches, because privately owned churches are often only operated only for profit (see Lakewood Church and Hillsong Church).
The persecution of "house churches" in China is not because they are practicing religion. These so called "house churches" are often people trying to use Christianity to justify plans to overthrow the Chinese government.

The act of documenting history is to catalog and analyze information which is no longer current. Online sources of information are temporary (at best), or manipulatable (as with editorial decisions to revise news articles), so the historian has no choice but to use an archival service to keep a record of the source material.
Ever since was taken over by a restricted academic network, their database has been censored under guidelines which... don't... make... sense, including prohibitions on using source materials from an entity that is the subject of an article (like a Black Panther Party article on political repression against their membership), they will only use sources from monopolist media or from restricted academic institutions. Another example is's refusal to allow any link to an archived page! See [], where you will find quotes from administrators claiming falsehoods and libel against in order to block links to that archival service.
Other falsehoods include the argument that to archive a webpage is to "steal it" [], which is not the case as the archive service does not sell nor profit from the archived webpage, and can be compared to a publicly viewable photocopy of a book page.

Anytime that a hard-nosed analysis is put forth of who our rulers are, of how their political and economic interests interlock, it is invariably denounced by Establishment liberals and conservatives (and even by many libertarians) as a “conspiracy theory of history,” “paranoid,” “economic determinist,” and even “Marxist.” These smear labels are applied across the board, even though such realistic analyses can be, and have been, made from any and all parts of the economic spectrum, from the John Birch Society to the Communist Party. The most common label is “conspiracy theorist,” almost always leveled as a hostile epithet rather than adopted by the “conspiracy theorist” himself.
Let us take an easy example. Suppose we find that Congress has passed a law raising the steel tariff or imposing import quotas on steel? Surely only a moron will fail to realize that the tariff or quota was passed at the behest of lobbyists from the domestic steel industry, anxious to keep out efficient foreign competitors. No one would level a charge of “conspiracy theorist” against such a conclusion. But what the conspiracy theorist is doing is simply to extend his analysis to more complex measures of government: say, to public works projects, the establishment of the ICC, the creation of the Federal Reserve System, or the entry of the United States into a war.

According to Fenn in his book “At the Dragon’s Gate: With the OSS in the Far East”, he became an integral member of the organization, even though he did not succeed in his mission.

* "US Airborne Brigade Sent to Ukraine Has History of War Atrocities":

Billboard text: "Charger Country, home of VC KILLERS. We have accounted for over 80% of VC killed of 2nd Battalion since 16 March 1966". VC refers to Viet Cong guerrillas, although the truth remains that the majority killed were simply civilians who resided within areas deemed hostile by USA military planners. This photograph was taken in Camp Zinn, Vietnam, sometime after March of 1966. Camp Zinn was the firebase and home of the second infantry battalion of the 173rd Airborne Brigade (paratroopers). The “Charger” in “Charger Country” refers to “C” company of the second battalion. Camp Zinn was about thirty miles from Saigon. A severed ear on a necklace and a bloody machete are depicted in the upper left hand corner of the billboard. They are not drawn to scale. Next to the ear is “Sorry ‘Bout That,” which was G.I. slang used to mock the misfortunes of others. Below that is “All the Way Sir,” which clearly signals that the depicted activity was sanctioned by the officers as was the erection of this billboard.
The“Jody Chant” that aspiring paratroopers ran and marched to during paratrooper training at Ft. Benning, Georgia, back in 1964 was:
"If I die on the Russian Front
Bury me with a Russian cunt
Pin my wings upon my chest
And tell my mom I did my best".
The world should be aware of the ethos, ethics and history of the US military gone to Ukraine to train the fascist murder machine of poroshenko's Kiev regime.

* "Lawless Big Business Must Be Controlled to Save Democracy" by Harold Ickes, Secretary of the Interior, January 8, 1938 []:
America is in travail. A new America is developing in the womb of time.
What kind of new America will it be?
Will it be an America which has learned how to fit an economic system of private enterprise to the traditions of our democracy?
Will it be an America which will attain economic freedom for the average man so that the political freedom of the Bill of Rights will become a reality and reach out in spirit to meet new conditions in the modern world?
Or will it be another kind of America—an America in which a system of free enterprise has failed so badly as a method of distributing goods that a disgusted people will welcome as a substitute one of the new-fashioned “disciplined” economies in which political liberty is regarded as a disruption of discipline and an intolerable luxury—an American in which the unsatisfied mass will yield democracy to a dictatorship either of the Right or the Left “in exchange for the illusion of a living”?
Here in America it is the old struggle between the power of money and the power of the democratic instinct.
In the last few months this irreconcilable conflict, long growing in our history, has come into the open as never before, has taken on a form and an intensity which makes it clear that it must be fought through to a finish—until plutocracy or democracy—until America’s sixty families or America’s 120 million people win.
Economic power in this country does not rest in the mass of the people as it must if a democracy is to endure. Wealth is not equitably distributed nor do its owners in the main even manage and control it. On the contrary, wealth has become so great and so concentrated that as a matter of fact, it controls those who possess it.
About one-half of the wealth of this country is in corporate form, and over one-half of it is under the domination of 200 corporations, which in turn are controlled by what Ferdinand Lundberg in his recent book referred to as “America’s 60 Families.”
Eight years ago America’s 60 families had held in their hands, since the close of the World War, complete dominion over the economic and political life of the country. They had lulled the American people into the conviction that if the people would grant conditions in which these 60 families would have confidence that they would do as they pleased, the 60 families would put capital to work; enterprise would boom, wages would rise, stocks would soar and there would be two cars in every garage.
The people gave the 60 families this confidence; gave the 60 families this trust in their benevolent despotism—in short, gave the sixty families then what they ask for today, and what happened? Out of their divinely claimed genius as managers of private enterprise the 60 families promptly led the American people into the worst peacetime catastrophe ever known.
Then the disillusioned people changed the government.
The new government bailed the 60 families out of the consequences of their own mesmeric miscalculations and their unintelligent leadership of the system of private enterprise of which they had pretended to be master managers. It preserved the corporate structures in which their capital was invested from going through the wringer of bankruptcy and reorganization and stock assessment.
As an inevitable by-product of preserving the capital structure from going through the wringer to squeeze out water, it preserved the management structure from going through the wringer to squeeze out incompetence and big salaries. Then government sought to modify the way in which the business of the nation was done so that business confidence would be based upon the well-being and purchasing power of 120 million people at the bottom standing on their own feet rather than upon the license of the sixty families at the top and upon their premises, in return for that license, to permit the gravy of their benevolence to trickle down upon the exploited millions at the bottom.
Government did get the economic system back on its feet; did succeed in doing a job where the 60 families had failed.
Government had the system back on its feet so well at the time of the elections of 1936 that, as the president said in his Chicago speech, the patients—over their panic and raising their salaries—felt strong enough to throw their crutches at the doctor.
And last spring government had the business of the country turning over so well that it thought it could safely heed the pleas of private enterprise to government and abandon the economic initiative.
Pursuant to these pleas government cut down public expenditures to keep up purchasing power in order to meet the insistence of private enterprise that business confidence would be greater if government would take steps to balance the budget—assuaged the fears of the head of the biggest bank in the United States about runaway inflation—and turned over to the managers of private enterprise the responsibility they had said that they were eager and willing to assume.
And what happened?
Two things. First, the 60 families that were masterminding private enterprise proved to have learned nothing nor forgotten nothing since 1929 about the management of business under modern conditions. They made the same mistakes they had made before 1929. They ran the stock market up and helped it get started down. They did little or nothing to increase the purchasing power of labor to make up for the government withdrawals and then ran prices to the sky so that the consumer refused to spend what they graciously let him earn.
Second, the 60 families, unwilling to learn to do business upon the democratic terms of 1937, began to make demands and threats.
To Franklin D. Roosevelt and the overwhelming millions who have three times approved his policy they have made a threat like that which Nicholas Biddle of the Bank of the United States 100 years ago made to Andrew Jackson—a threat that they will refuse to do business at all unless the President and the Congress and the people will repeal all that we have gained in the last five years and regrant them the suicidal license they had enjoyed in 1929.
To the 120 million people of the United States they have made the threat that the professional operators of the American economic system and the professional managers of the capital funds of the United States—capital to which every American man and woman over four generations has contributed sweat and blood—will refuse to operate that economic system, will refuse to let that capital be employed unless they are once more given full power to wreck American democracy in their own sweet way.
To the 120 million people of the United States they have made the threat that, unless they are free to speculate free of regulations to protect the people’s money; unless they are free to accumulate through legal tricks by means of corporations without paying their share of taxes; unless they are free to dominate the rest of us without restrictions on their financial or economic power; unless they are once more free to do all these things, then the United States is to have its first general sit-down strike—not of labor—not of the American people—but of the 60 families and of the capital created by the whole American people of which the 60 families have obtained control.
If the American people call this bluff, then the America that is to be free will be a democratic America, a free America.
If the American people yield to this bluff, then the America that is to be will be a big-business Fascist America—an enslaved America.
The future of America depends upon whether big business can—now, within the coming session of Congress—be compelled to conform to our laws, be compelled to accept the will of the majority, be compelled to cooperate with the rest of the us in trying to make democracy work.
Daniel Webster, a conservative of his day, in a memorable speech delivered at the bicentennial celebration of the landing of the Pilgrims, ascribed the unique growth and survival of democratic institutions in this country to the fact that wealth was equitably distributed, that everyone had a real and not an illusory chance to acquire an economic stake in the welfare of the country and that, in consequence, a democracy involved no irreconcilable conflicts because both economic power and political power existed in the great mass of the people.
This country was envisaged by Thomas Jefferson and the political philosophers of his time as one of economically free and contented property owners. And property meant real property—a man’s home or farm or plantation. It was unbelievable that in America there would ever develop a small group of very rich men who would seek to dominate millions of their fellows. It was inconceivable that legal entities called corporations would grow into Frankensteins that threatened to destroy liberty itself.
Since the earliest days of the Republic, the average American has feared, and has been taught to fear, the concentration of private economic power. He has always been suspicious of dominating influence of large corporate enterprises, and not without reason. It has been a hard fight to preserve a free democracy and system of free individual enterprise against the inroads of concentrated economic power.
There are some who say the fight cannot be won. They despair that the government cannot break or control the concentrations of private economic power. But I am sure the fight can be won. I am unwilling to believe that private economic power will succeed in again securing mastery of the government of these United States.
Big business must be controlled if our democracy is to survive. Our government knows no privileged and class and intends to acknowledge none. Concentrated wealth and power in the hands of a few is just as dangerous today as it has been tin times past when the people fought power and wealth in order to preserve their own human rights.
In other nations and at other times, the people have been forced to carry upon their straining backs a feudal aristocracy that strutted the boards as knights and barons and earls. We find that here in America we have permitted the development of an even more oppressive system of money aristocrats, or corporate earls, of ducal economic overlords. The moneyed aristocracy of American constitutes an even greater menace to our institutions than would a titled class with vintaged handles to their names. It is intolerable that the degree of our democracy should have to depend upon the degree of self-restraint exercised by a handful of men whose corporate tentacles reach their strangling length into every nook and cranny of the land. . . .
If the new America starts out as big business Fascism, it will end as do all Fascist regimes—with Herr Goering’s four-year plans and Singor Mussolini’s capital levies. The insurrecto lords of American big business will sooner or later learn that they are safer with the democratic aspirations of Lincoln’s common people than with the methods of the warlords across the waters. They have only to look abroad to discover while in its theory Fascism is “controlled capitalism,” before long there is always someone ready and able to seize control of “controlled capitalism.”
But the American people, if they are wise, and if they see their problem in time, will never permit the lords of big business the opportunity to make a mistaken choice.
The new America must be a land of free business, not of ruthless business—a land of free men, not of economic slaves.

* " 'Individualism' Seen in Destructive Phase" by Theodore Dreiser, January 9, 1932 [] [begin excerpt]:
As it is now, we have gotten no further than the right of the most cunning and strong individuals among us to aggrandize themselves, leaving the rest of us here in America, as elsewhere, to subsist on what is left after they are through. And if you will examine our American economic arrangement, you will find that they are not through, since by now 50 families control 95 percent of the wealth of the country, and these families, their trusts and holding companies, are now not only not distributing that wealth in any equitable ration, but even if they were so minded, they are not capable of so doing. Taken collectively, they do not constitute any central authority. And except through the function of government which they seek to, and do, direct for their own private aggrandizement, they have no means, let alone any intention of so doing.
More, the government, which is supposed to represent all of the individualistic ambitions of all of our people, is in no position to do that. It, too, in turn, has become one of the instruments of this central group of individuals which now directs all of its functions to its particular and very special advantage.
