In California, Indiana, Kentucky, New York, Arkansas and Vermont, more than 500 pardons were granted along with another 20 commutations or grants of clemency.

Nov 22, 1963 to Nov 22, 2010: JFK Assassination to Airport Fascism (tags)
It is now 47 years since the CIA murdered President Kennedy on November 22, 1963, an event easily remembered by all of us over 57, down to the pecise moment we got the news. That Reichstag Fire is now the paradigm for blowing the whistle on all such attacks on all of us to enrich the rich, including but not limited to the 9/11 Inside Job, the underwear bomber and all the other staged events. The good news is the American people are fighting back with a National Opt Out Day on November 24, 2010 to stop the police state at the airports.

Police Abuse: Will a ‘torture’ verdict be the beginning of the end? (tags)

Declaration about the Situation in Honduras by ALBA Member Countries in the OAS (tags)
"We add our voice to the regional, national, and world organisations and institutions that have expressed their rejection of these barbaric acts that the coup leaders and supporters have committed in Honduras. We demand an end to the repression, a definite suspension of the curfew, respect of the inviolability of the Brazilian diplomatic headquarters, and the immediate and unconditional restitution of President Zelaya to his functions as Constitutional and Democratic President of Honduras."
What Some US Reporters Don't Get About Brazil and the Honduras Crisis (tags)
"The international community demands that Mr Zelaya immediately return to the presidency of his country and must be alert to ensure the inviolability of Brazil's diplomatic mission in the capital of Honduras." The United Nations isn't likely to ignore Lula's plea. As a body, it owes Brazil heavily for its leadership of UN Peacekeeping forces in Haiti, and also for its unique role as a respected organizer and spokes-country of "developing world" states as a force for global social and economic justice. Wealthier nations, meanwhile, from the US to China to Europe, are greatly dependent (or would like to be more so) on the gigantic consumer market that is Brazil. In eight short years, Lula has greatly risen Brazil's status and respect across the globe by playing these factors upon each other very shrewdly."

Abu Sayyaf: The CIA’s Monster Gone Berserk (tags)
The Philippines is under watch by America’s “anti-terrorism” network. This is so not only because of the presence of active Moro and Marxist guerrillas but also because of its special concern on the Abu Sayyaf. In the ‘80s, just as it was waging its last surrogate wars against the Soviet Union, the U.S. was also engaged in new forms of covert operations -- the training of Islamic militants to fight the Russians in Afghanistan and elsewhere. A product of this war – the Abu Sayyaf – was once hailed by American presidents as a group of “freedom fighters.” It was an exaltation that would haunt them for years.
Kevin Zeese: Attack on Iran May Lead to WWIII! (tags)
Takoma, Maryland’s City Hall was the scene for a lively discussion on Middle East issues, on Aug. 17, 2006. Kevin Zeese, the “Unity candidate” for the U.S. Senate in Maryland, and one of the panelists, said Israel’s attack on Lebanon was premeditated and that an attack on Iran might lead to WWIII. Noura Erakat said Lebanon had been devastated ‘on a humanitarian level” by Israel’s War Machine. She also denounced Israel as an “Apartheid state.”
Neocon Chickenhawks: A Small Tightly-Knit Clan Part 2 (tags)
This list of intricate, overlapping connections is hardly exhaustive or perhaps even surprising. But it helps reveal an important fact. Contrary to appearances, the neocons do not constitute a powerful mass political movement. They are instead a small, tightly-knit clan whose incestuous familial and personal connections, both within and outside the Bush administration, have allowed them grab control of the future of American foreign policy.

Gaza: the Transparency of Naked Aggression (tags)
In spite of strict censorship, even blocking Reuters, a growing minority see proof that 9/11 was an inside job, a cynical self-terror act to ignite a new war of civilizations for total world domination. They endorse "9/11 Truth" as the only way to stop the war on Iraq and Iran. Here we explore parallels with the endless war on Palestine.
