Liberals Are Being Dishonest On Gun Control (tags)
There are few things more dangerous to a nation’s citizenry than when its leaders decide to turn on their own or selected groupings of their own people. Tyrants should be feared far more than various types of weapons—especially when tyrants have no restrictions on their selection of weapons. The progressive idea of the 2nd Amendment was a notion that common people should have the right to defend themselves against tyrannical governments (including and especially their own who could turn on them). THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AND ITS CURRENT DYSFUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH ISRAEL DOES NOT WARRANT TRUST ENOUGH FOR THE AMERICAN CITIZENRY TO HANDOVER GUNS TO THIS CORRUPTED STATUS QUO.
Isabel Avila's "Parallel Worlds" at the Vincent Price Art Museum (tags)
In her first solo exhibit, photographer (and contributor to LA IndyMedia) Isabel Avila explores the dual identities of Native American and Mexican American cultures, emphasizing people active in their communities. Avila's photographs, taken over the last few years, are complimented by video discussions, many featuring her photo subjects but also additional people, including Gloria Arellanes, one of the early Brown Berets and member of the Tongva community. (Excerpts of these dialogs can be found further down in this article.) The free exhibit is currently at the Vincent Price Museum through December 8. It will then then relocate to Rancho Cucamonga's Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art and run from January 22 – March 16, 2013. (Location details within the article.)

Israeli President Katsav pardons Rabin assassin insider,aids fraud of Mohamed Hadid ! (tags)
I'm sure they,(the ' Islamic charity folk'), have been quite impressed that Palestinian-American Mohamed Hadid and British-Israeli Michael Zwebner have been able to use not only Katsav's as well as IFA founder Gal Lusky's name in 'pump and dump' fraud using worthless U.S. penny stock shares but also with Moshe Katsav's willingness to pretend he doesn't notice they also 'drafted' Israeli soldiers and the whole of the Israeli army into their scammy press releases claiming the Israeli army would buy 'UCSY's' or Universal Communications Systems' non-existent 'air-water machines', (sometimes supposedly manufactured in Israel itself or sometimes in Brazil or sometimes in China, etc.,etc.).
Mantas Inc,Herndon, Va, Pro-Money Laundering Arm of International Bankers,Brokers (tags)
Mantas Inc. whose expertise is supposedly anti-money laundering has allowed untold millions or perhaps billions of laundered dollars go unchecked by criminals or even possibly terrorists through our banking , brokerage and market maker systems... promotion of Endovasc penny stock by Agora Inc. of Baltimore followed by massive dumping of 'up to 30 million shares' from a Charles Schwab account is proof but still not even the tip of the 'share-money laundering' iceberg they are apparently paid to ignore. Charles Schwab sold the corrupt market maker business to CSFB not long after that and many other illegal pump and dump schemes in partnership with LOM of Bermuda.Mantas Inc.was rewarded for not doing its supposed job of guarding against money laundering and illegal pump and dump activities by being contracted by CSFB to oversee 'ati-money laundering' activities of CSFB who bought Charles Schwab's market maker business.It should come as no surprise unfortunately that the CIA's In-Q-Tel has been an investor in SRA International, Inc (NYSE:SRX), and that its other parent company Safeguard Scientifics, Inc. (NYSE:SFE) actually shows every indication of having been an illegal pump and dump itself having been promoted even by Agora Inc. inthe past to near $100 per share a few years back to having become a penny stock today .
CAPITALISM AND SOCIALISM (tags)
Every year since 1990, the United Nations publishes its Human Development Report. It contains the most authoritative data on the state of the world. These reports are available online: hdr.undp.org/reports/view_reports.cfm?type=1. Based on those reports (referred to by year, followed by page), what does our world look like?
Iran, the draft, and another "New Pearl Harbor"? (tags)
Are the Bush Neo-cons setting the stage for *another* "New Pearl Harbor" attack on US interests--one that may dwarf September 11? The author of the following article thinks so. He thinks the attack is being planned to mobilize the US for ever more war and to ensure support for a military draft. And the article's footnote suggests the attack on US interests may hit a US city...and it may be nuclear.
