The Flaw and Words Can't Magic Away the Trade Deficit (tags)
One recurring delusion in the controversy over America's free-trade-induced trade mess is the idea that our gigantic trade deficit, which fluctuates around $500 billion a year, somehow "doesn't matter." Systemic and structural contradictions are often repressed; economic problems are trivialized.
Why 50 State Attorney's General Should Not Settle With Banksters, Mortgage Fraud (tags)

Phosphorus denial outweighed by evidence (tags)
"There are many ways to “light” a battle field. In Gaza, no such area exists anyway. There are just people’s hovels, holes and “homes.” Such as they are after years of blockade and bombardment by Israeli forces. The White phorpous is a terror weapon perfect for driving people away, “never to return.” The Zionist dream is and has always been for many, at least, to remove the native Arab population and posses all of “Greater Israel.” This inhuman weapon nicknamed “Willie Pete.” is perfect for the effort. When it comes into contact with human flesh it moves down toward the bone, tissues evaporate. Victims may survive for some time before vital organs are compromised, effecting death. Parents watch the agony and may be forced to end their children’s wild sufferings by shortening their lives in “other ways.”

LAPD suppresses radical art space (tags)
Imagine a place where people can come together to exchange ideas, create art, play music, and otherwise invest in a better world, starting here and now in Los Angeles. Some LA heads went beyond imagining and created it. After many hours of hard work and planning, they finally opened it up to the community to host a hip hop show, a benefit for next month's anarchist bookfair. The crowd was mostly young people from a variety of backgrounds and different parts of the city. Some of us were painting and organizing for the first Los Angeles Really Really Free Market, but mostly people were just bobbing their heads to the beats. We were obviously a threat to the system and the American way of life.

US Real Estate: From Goldmine To Money Pit (tags)
Mortgage Backed Securities and Derivatives are Flawed and Failing. The mortgage debt problem is simple really, it has been a total mis-appropriation of equity. The equity lost on flat screen TV's, boats, new cars, vacations, and other living expenses; is equity lost forever. This loss of equity spent on consumer goods and expenses is a pyramid scheme of hyper-capitalism that is flawed and failing. Equity not spent on the property the equity comes from, is equity lost forever, a mis-appropriation of funds, and inappropriate; it is a failing economic model.
UCLA Adult Stem Cell Speech (tags)
I had already researched embryonic stem cells, and that was so far away. There weren’t any clinical trials going on that I could find. It looked like it was going to be two, five, maybe ten years away. With the controversy over embryonic stem cells raging, the future of any new discoveries coming in time to help me was pretty dim.

Year of the Rats: How I Achieved Peaceful Coexistence with My Rat Neighbors (tags)
“. . . Meanwhile I continued to try and make the best of the situation. I started putting items into the live trap which needed to be broken down. . . The rats began to shred up my old bank statements for me. I had a huge accumulation of them and had been reluctant to buy a shredder—I’ve been trying to use less electric devices, not more. . . . I had an almost-empty peanut butter jar with some hard-to-reach glop still stuck inside. One night I left the jar outdoors in an area where Snaggletooth was known to go. The next morning the jar was all cleaned out and ready for the recycling bin. . . .”

“Good Night, and Good Luck” -- WMD, NIST, Popular Mechanics, 9/11 and Media Crimes (tags)
BBC1 Television, near 9/11/2001, interviewed 9/11 author and theologian, David Ray Griffin. What caught my attention was another guest (a writer for a prominent British newspaper) who scoffed at considering challenges to the official story of 9/11, because US media is so vast and free that if there were problems with the official story, he'd have heard about it via US media. There is a 9/11 cover up occurring.

He surmised it could only be a firearm as the latter moved his hand toward it when Bantayan came out of their gate.

We shall now quote a couple of notes from that issue that express the essence of the venezuelan anarchists' perspective.

Editorial Policy: The Open Publishing Newswire is an essential part of the Indymedia project. It is a globally accessible space for anyone to quickly self-publish breaking news, articles, commentary, digital photos, and audio. Los Angeles Indymedia volunteers moderate the newswire. In the last year and a half, the Los Angeles IMC Open Publishing Newswire has been besieged with detractive postings, other items, and commentary that are far away from what the Newswire is meant to be: a vital source of progressive and radical breaking news, commentary, articles, and announcements. There are no easy or perfect solutions to moderating an Open Publishing Newswire, rich with a healthy democracy of views. We have agreed by consensus on the following guidelines to help us decide what postings are appropriate and what are not. We believe that these guidelines will help to make the moderating process clearer for IMC volunteers and anyone who self-publishes; we hope to create an unencumbered, useful and Open Publishing Newswire for readers worldwide. We strongly recommend that you read our editorial policy

Eyewitness Says Aristide Did NOT Flee- He was Forced Out at Gunpoint by US Soldiers (tags)
A French reporter on the scene in Haiti found a terrified old man - a palace caretaker, he believes - cowering in a corner. The old man said US soldiers came in and forced Aristide to leave at gun point.

The body of a man murdered by right wing death squards lies in the street following the chaos that followed the forced departure of elected Haitian President Jean Bertrand Aristide. The U.S. backed coup makers, joined by police, are at this moment chasing down supporters of President Aristide and killing them. KPFA Radio, along with news media in Australia and France, are reporting that U.S. SOLDIERS KIDNAPPED Aristide at GUNPOINT and took him away in handcuffs.

Doom & Delusion In TheShadow Of Rome (tags)
t's as if our entire colonial experiment, known as "America" had been bought at an auction without our consent, as slaves were sold not so long ago. Unfortunately, the highest bidders happened to be the multinational arms manufacturers, oil companies, and drug pushers. Now, with the protection of the CIA, the NSA, the DIA, FBI, DEA, ATF, etc. and their neofascist "Homeland Security" Department which bundles them together, these extremely wealthy elitists feel they can get away with anything, kill as many people as they like and have their media paint it as heroism, take away an entire nation and replace it with profitable industrial dictatorship and call this "democracy." It would all be laughable if it weren't so deadly.

Are breakaway marches a good tactic? (tags)
Radical elements of the anti-war movement have used "breakway marches," in which a smaller group breaks away from the main (peaceful and legal) march, and engages in "direct action" of some sort, to good effect in SF, LA, & NYC. At this early stage of the movement, that is probably a good idea. However, once war with Iraq actually breaks out in earnest, radical anti-capitalists should seek to seize control of the main marches themselves, wresting them away from the reformist misleaders, and taking the streets in a massive showing of the power of the people.

Gray Davis and Republican challenger Bill Simon, turned away the man most polls show running third: Green Party candidate Peter Camejo.
