Voice Actor Rob Paulsen is touring LA to promote his new book "Voice Lessons" (tags)
Voice Actor Rob Paulsen is touring LA to promote his new book "Voice Lessons" By: De Waal & Associates 10/16 @ 7PM PST - Barnes and Noble, The Grove Los Angeles, CA We all grew up watching characters brought to life by Rob Paulsen - Pinky from Pinky and the Brain and Yakko from Animaniacs, Raphael from the original animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles... the list goes on. With over 2,000 credits to his name along with an Emmy and a Peabody Award, Rob is a bonafide legend in the voice acting community. In his memoir VOICE LESSONS Rob tells the story of how he went from living in the suburbs of Detroit, to a roving performer, to booking his first gig, to making it big in the voice acting world. In February 2016, Paulsen was diagnosed with Stage III throat cancer, which threatened his livelihood and almost robbed the world of future joy the likes of which he has brought to the small and big screen for decades. Thankfully, his cancer went into remission and the long process of recovery could begin. Humble and ever-thankful for the support and love from his fans (just take a trip over to his Twitter account), Paulsen went right back to doing what he loves, voicing animated characters across television and film. He brings with him a renewed sense of vigor and interest in his craft, plus a constant appreciation for his fans - the people who helped him enjoy a career spanning more than three decades. Chock-full of "voice lessons," Rob's story proves to be an inspiration for anyone battling an illness, striving to make it big in their careers, or anyone who is currently trying to overcome personal battles in their own lives. For cartoon-loving fans, this book is also laden with humorous behind-the-scenes stories and anecdotes featuring big names in Hollywood that will delight any devotee to the fandom. ABOUT VOICE LESSONS: Voice Lessons tells the heartwarming and life-affirming story of Rob's experience with an aggressive cancer treatment and recovery regimen, which luckily led to a full recovery. Rob quickly returned to doing what he loves most, but with a much deeper appreciation of what he came so close to losing. His new lease on life inspired him to rededicate himself to his fans, particularly the new friends he made along the way: hundreds of sick children and their families. Rob said it best himself: "I can not only continue to make a living, but make a difference, and I can't wait to use that on the biggest scale that I can.”

Strategic Emergency Declared Upon Eastern Europe (tags)
In a statement at Moscow International Relations School (Mirsch), newly appointed Unitednations chairman Antonin Guderez today declared the condition of formal strategic emergency over the region of Eastern Europe. According to the body‘s charter, this means that the Secretary General has vetoed any form of military or political confrontation taken by any member or non-member states, and made change an unavoidable precondition for his own activity there. The short statement was delivered at the end of a question and answer session of a lesson on the history of the Soviet Union, which the politician has attended as a guest. Over the recent days and weeks, the region has seen a rush of deployments and tactical material shipments far beyond the usual conflict hotspots.

[Strategy!:] The Occupy Movement Needs a Good Fight (tags)
The Occupy Movement Needs a Good Fight "Power concedes nothing without a demand." - Frederick Douglass In a movement based on general anger about inequality and the domination of big banks, it becomes difficult to focus the rage into something concrete. For many Occupiers, being concrete is a mere distraction, meant to shift the movement into something 'less radical,” since their targets — big banks and inequality — are at the root of the problem. Why mess with the tree when you could go for the roots? But, as any tree-removal worker will tell you, the tree comes first, then the roots. The roots cannot be the immediate goal of the Occupy movement because pulling them out would require tens of millions of hands, and the vast majority of working people are not yet directly involved in the movement, though many of them are giving approving nods from a distance. Bringing these more distant people into the movement requires they be given a good reason to join. And although a general anti-1% sentiment sounds appealing to the 99%, a struggle to win worker-friendly demands can help pull these people into the streets.

That?s what Dr. Susan Little of the Antiviral Research Center (ARC) at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) Medical Center came to the Hillcrest Town Council on May 10, when she spoke at their meeting to announce a new, stunningly intrusive and threatening program called ?Lead the Way? designed essentially to force everyone between the ages of 18 and 64 in the 92103 and 92104 Zip codes ? the parts of San Diego with the greatest concentration of Queer residents ? to take the HIV antibody test and go on immediate ?treatment? with anti-HIV medications if they test ?positive.? What makes this even worse is that Dr. Little has a documented history of breaking the confidentiality of ALL her subjects in a previous HIV antibody testing study!

BANTAY Points Out ‘Conflict of interest’ in the Aquino III Cabinet (tags)
The BANTAY PILIPINAS based California said today that President Benigno Aquino lll’s decision to pick executives from big business for key Cabinet posts has placed his administration in potential conflict-of-interest situations, particularly in state-regulated enterprises, such as power, water, telecommunications and toll roads, the EPCC noted Tuesday. The BANTAY PILIPINAS said the big business appointments were a growing public concern because they were identified with four of the most influential business conglomerates in the country – the Ayala, Lopez, Aboitiz and Metro Pacific groups – to positions with powers to make or unmake business empires. The appointees mentioned were Transportation Secretary Jose de Jesus, Public Works Secretary Rogelio Singson and Energy Secretary Jose Rene Almendras.

RP ELECTIONS, ATUOMATED BUT STILL ROTTEN TO THE CORE (tags)
The PESANTE NEWS LEARNED today that the Philippine revolutionary movement issued a statement today, May 23, 2010. Here it is: "The recently concluded reactionary elections, seemingly "modernized" with automation, was as rotten to the core as ever. The return to power of the Aquino-Cojuangco clan and its Kamag-anak Inc., through apparent president-elect Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III; the repositioning of the Marcoses--Imelda, Ferdinand Jr. and Imee; the continuing domination of Congress by the Arroyos, now with Gloria Arroyo herself elected congressman; and many more of the like all point to the indictment of the recent reactionary elections as nothing but a big sham foisted by the reactionary ruling classes upon the masses.
Analysis of the RP 2010 Electiion by Prof. Jose Ma. Sison (tags)
The conduct of the 2010 elections shows the rottenness of the US-dominated ruling system of big compradors and landlords. It was a process dominated by the coalitions, parties and candidates of the reactionary ruling classes. Beforehand, it excluded the leaders of the working people who were repressed or who were without campaign funds. It was merely a personality-based contest of the political agents of the same exploiting classes. They did not offer any strong differences in terms of program. They mouthed slogans against poverty and corruption and the need for change. But they said nothing about overcoming the three monsters of foreign monopoly capitalism, domestic feudalism and bureaucrat capitalism which exploit, impoverish and oppress the people. They gave no serious attention to the worsening crisis of the domestic ruling system and the world capitalist system.

Wall Street Under Obama: Bigger and Riskier (tags)
After the financial levees broke and the crumbling banks ushered in the economic crisis, angry people clamored for drastic change in the financial system. Obama reflected these feelings well, at times using radical rhetoric to denounce the banking titans. What he promised was deep regulatory change so that such a crisis “would never happen again.” Like every other promise of substance, Obama’s pledge to “rein in” the banks has fallen by the wayside; the well-timed rhetoric smoothed over public tensions and now business is back to usual. The New York Times remarks:

Children who will go without health care, young pregnant women who will not receive counseling, working moms, students depending on state sponsored college scholarships, and people with disabilities, Alzheimer's, mental illness, and HIV/AIDS. And who is to too big to sacrifice? Exxon-Mobil, Chevron, Shell, Conoco-Pillips, and BP. The Governor and California Republicans adamantly insist that the oil and natural gas companies will pay no severance tax for the privilege of extracting oil and natural gas that belongs to Californians, even as the State goes $25 million deeper into high interest debt every day.

Romney’s piece, entitled “Let Detroit Go Broke,” laid bare the intent behind the angry rhetoric used by politicians against the proposed bailout for the “Big Three” automakers. Whereas the giant Wall Street banks received over 1 trillion dollars — so far— without barely having to ask, an industry that actually produces something has to beg for a handout. Why the difference?

Globally, nationalization of the oil industry is the trend. It’s time for the U.S. to join that club.

Bush silenced Saddam fast (tags)
SEND THIS TO OTHERS President Bush and his handlers had their puppet Iraq regime suddenly hang (execute)Iraq President Saddam Hussein, after an unfair trial which made the verdict and sentence illegitimate, late Saturday night December 30 over the New Year's weekend when Congress was closed, to silence Saddam and kill him, before the new Democrat majority Congress starts on January 2 , to prevent the new Democrat controlled Congress from possibly delaying or entirely cancelling Saddam's death sentence - and possibly obtaining information from Saddam that might make the Bush regime look bad. But Bush and his PR agebts will never admit this. The Iraq constitutuion even prohibits executions on that day, which is the most sacred holiday of Islam, The Eid. Saddam carried the Quran (Koran) Muslim Holy Book to his hanging. If Saddam was a war criminal deserving of hanging, then why not also President Bush for his war crimes in Iraq , as Commander-in-Chief, killing many thousands of Iraqis who merely tried to repel the American invasion and occupation of their country...and the thousands of Iraqi civilians who did not fight, but were killed and wouinded by American artillery, American airplane bombings, American soldiers shooting them, etc...the vast majority of this not reported by the American news media, which is owned and controllled by very wealthy people who favor the Bush regime, because it serves them, the wealthy. This unjust, war of agression was started by the Bush regime based on lies, to steal Iraq's oil and for war profits of big corporations that fund Bush's Republican Party. But the Democrats went along with it, and even ow, some of them, such as Senator Hillary Clinton still support the war. Iraq was never behind 911, did not have weapons of mass destruction, was not building a nuclear bomb, was not a terrorist state, and posed no threat to America. Iraqi's did not start killing Americans until we invaded their country to try to conquer Iraq. It is their right to defentdheir own country from American invaders. THe American government gave Saddam a lot of military support for years when he was at war with Iran, but our government was then conveniently silent about his human rights abuses, The puppet Iraq government the Bush regime controls is a poice state, which has banned news media they don;t like (government censorship) and allows government death squads to roam Iraq killin whoever they want. THe standard of living and public safety are much worse than when Saddamw as in power. At least Iraq was stable then. American never really reconstructed Iraq after the horrible damage we did by massively bombing the country for days when we started the war. America is a rogue nation, a terrorist nation, run by politiicnas who are war criminals, for the profits of the military-industrial complex that funds these corrupt, dishonest politicians. Big corporations get these war profist and banks get big money from the interest on the $2 trillion war debt. December 28 Rolling Stone magazine has a big article documenting the $2 trillion war debt we taxpayers will have to pay. Money thta should be spent instead on universal health care. Not such wars of conquest. Like the VIetnam ar when we killed about a million peole in that part of Southeast Asia, after VIetnam defeated the French invaders in 1953, then we tried to take over Vietnam and Laos and cambodia. President JOhn F. Kennedy was assassianted (apparently by the CIA, just a few months after he said he was withdrawing from VIetnam, and said he would eliminate the CIA. His bother, senator Robert Kennedy was then assassinated by the CIA (Sirhan was under hypnosis at the time so Robert Kennedy, who wa srunning for President at the time, could not become President, as then he would have the power to bring to justice the killers of his brother John F. Kennedy. Martin Luther King was killed after he publicly turned against the Vietnam war. Apparently by U.S. Government assassin. Army snipers were later revealed to have been on rooftops at the time he was shot dead. So they must have done it. Both parties, Democrats and Republicans supported the Vietnam War. Many in Congress who are Democrats and also the Republicans support this iraq war, although some Democrats in Congress oppose it. All American politiicnas know that if they oppose the military-industrial complex war machine too strongly, they too can be assassinated by it too.

But how hard is that to figure out? Not all who describe themselves as "patriots" are really the type of patriots we think they are. The push by some in the so-called 9/11 truth movement to follow and spread the word of "celebs" has only been shown to tank credibility -- celebs and big names have been shown all too often to function as bait for the explicit promotion of "no planes" theories.

Should Noam Chomsky Reset His Compass? (tags)
Noam Chomsky was interviewed for the 2005 book, “Imperial Ambitions.” In it, he addressed the Iraqi War, but he failed to take on the hawkish Neocons. Chomsky said the war was about the “control of oil.” He also ignored the influential Israeli Lobby’s role in agitating for the conflict. In the introduction, a colleague said that he “misses nothing.” Question: How can that be true, if Chomsky missed the six ton elephant in the room - the Israeli Lobby?

Because that’s when the weather is nice, and people might actually have the time to camp and stay.

RFK, Jr. Blasts Big Oil & Bush-Cheney Gang (tags)
The Bush-Cheney Gang gave the store away in the so-called “Energy Bill.” It granted $4 billion in tax breaks to Big Oil, despite the fact that ExxonMobil had profits of $24 billion last year! Now, environmentalists rallying in Washington, D.C., on 09/20/05, suspect that parts of the pristine Arctic Wildlife Refuge will soon be opened up to oil drilling. At the protest, RFK, Jr., labeled George Bush: “The worst environmental president in U.S. history!”
WTO/Codex to Ban Organic Food, Vitamins; force Irradiated GMO food down our throats... (tags)
December 31, 2009. The date that Codex Alimentarius will go into effect. "Codex Alimentarius" means "food rules" in Latin. The organization was born in 1962 when the UN established the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) as a "Trade Commission". It was created to regulate, and thus control, every aspect of how food and nutritional supplements are produced and sold to the consumer. It is solely about trade and the profits of multi-national corporations. Codex would effectively ban most organic food from being sold worldwide and force all food to be irradiated in the name of "safety." By using the World Trade Organization's economic sanctions against companies who do not comply with Codex rules, all animals raised for food will have to be fed antibiotics and hormones, and most nutritional vitmains and supplements will be banned.

Big Brother (tags)
. In the New York Times (October 14, 2002), Leslie Wayne described how a very old war praxis is revived in the pentagon with the war against terror: the hiring of mercenaries. Today they are called “private military contractors”. Some of these mercenary firms are sub-contractors of corporations from the Fortune 500 list (the 500 largest in assets). “The Pentagon cannot wage war without them… Private military contractors are the new business face of war.” These agencies have their people in Bosnia, Nigeria, Macedonia, Colombia and elsewhere. MPRI, one of the leading military firms, boasts of “more generals per square foot than the Pentagon”. In peace times, they can carry out secret missions with the exclusion of the public. Without any chain of command, they are not accountable to the US Congress, only to their clients, the Pentagon or the State Department.

UK Independent reports Republicans use E-voting systems to steal elections (tags)
If much of the worry about vote-tampering is directed at the Republicans, it is largely because the big three touchscreen companies are all big Republican donors, pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into party coffers in the past few years. The ownership issue is, of course, compounded by the lack of transparency. Or, as Dr Mercuri puts it: "If the machines were independently verifiable, who would give a crap who owns them?" As it is, fears that US democracy is being hijacked by corporate interests are being fuelled by links between the big three and broader business interests, as well as extremist organisations. Two of the early backers of American Information Systems, a company later merged into ES&S, are also prominent supporters of the Chalcedon Foundation, an organisation that espouses theocratic governance according to a literal reading of the Bible and advocates capital punishment for blasphemy and homosexuality.
