“Take these Tribes Down” The Anti-Indian Movement Comes to Washington State

“Take these Tribes Down” The Anti-Indian Movement Comes to Washington State: Inside a Lakeway Inn conference room, about fifty people were gathered to hear a lineup of speakers assail the very ideas of tribal sovereignty and treaty rights – of tribal nationhood. The anti-Indian movement had come to town. The concerns of Idle No More Bellingham were entirely justified.

The Bellingham conference was sponsored by the Citizens Equal Rights Alliance (CERA) and Citizens Equal Rights Foundation (CERF), one of a series of events being hosted around the country by these closely-linked national anti-Indian groups. CERA/CERF held previous meetings in New York and Massachusetts; others are slated for late April in the Midwest and June in Northern California. CERA/CERF organized these forums after canceling their regular annual Washington D.C. conference.

There are several of these just two blocks from my home in a little area set aside for homeless individuals, and the Conestoga Hut model is also there. Compare the efforts of organizations like these to the post below. Eugene has a long way to go when it comes to helping the homeless, but there are compassionate groups and individuals, including local government (not perfect at all, by there are worse) are better than many.

6 U.S. Cities That Criminalize Homelessness | Care2 Causes

From 6 U.S. Cities That Criminalize Homelessness | Care2 Causes:
The solutions to homelessness may not be simple, but that doesn’t mean we have to compound the problems. Yet that’s precisely the route that several of American cities have taken. Rather than finding ways to provide assistance to some of the country’s least fortunate citizens, lawmakers have developed strict regulations to criminalize homeless people’s activities, as if they were sleeping on the sidewalk and panhandling out of malice rather than necessity.

The UFO Trail: John Marks and 'The Search for the Manchurian Candidate'

Jack Brewer at UFO Trail discusses the relatioship between UFOs, Manchurian Candidates and the government-industrial-complex:
The UFO Trail: John Marks and 'The Search for the Manchurian Candidate': Those familiar with The UFO Trail and Orlando Paranormal Examiner are well aware of my interest in the intelligence community. Part of that interest was inspired by the extents I consistently find people within ufology to be largely uninformed of the histories of intelligence agencies. Such people are subsequently ill equipped to identify potential correlations between the intelligence community and ufology.

More than one well educated contact in the UFO community has told me that the vast majority of what they knew about Project MKULTRA they learned as a result of our interactions. Other contacts, well versed in matters of alleged aliens and their methods of operation, have often demonstrated comparatively very little knowledge of the intelligence community. Obviously, an accurate and comprehensive history of American intelligence matters is not included in either typical US college curriculum or popular UFO lore. It is for such reasons that I offer a bit of history on how the public gained access to what is known of Central Intelligence Agency ventures into behavior modification projects such as MKULTRA.

Monsanto Now Owns Blackwater (Xe) DarkGovernment

Frightening. I'm ready to get off the planet now.
"Monsanto Now Owns Blackwater (Xe) DarkGovernment: Monsanto Now Owns Blackwater (Xe)

A report by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation (Blackwater’s Black Ops, 9/15/2010) revealed that the largest mercenary army in the world, Blackwater (now called Xe Services) clandestine intelligence services was sold to the multinational Monsanto. Blackwater was renamed in 2009 after becoming famous in the world with numerous reports of abuses in Iraq, including massacres of civilians. It remains the largest private contractor of the U.S. Department of State “security services,” that practices state terrorism by giving the government the opportunity to deny it."

Brief News Item About Flights

Late last night, listening to Coast to Coast. Aside from the on-going Boston marathon bombing disinformation performance we're witnessing, was an odd little item about flights. Paraphrasing, it went something like this:
"Passengers can expect long delays, up to several hours in some cases, as well as cancellation of some flights. The reason: sequestering and furloughs."
That was it. No who, what, where, why.

Banned Books 2013: 'Captain Underpants', 'Fifty Shades' Make List Of Most Challenged

Huffington Post reports:
Banned Books 2013: 'Captain Underpants', 'Fifty Shades' Make List Of Most Challenged: No. 1 was a not a story of the bedroom, but the bathroom, Dav Pilkey's "Captain Underpants" books (Offensive language, unsuited for age group), followed by Sherman Alexie's prize-winning "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian" (Offensive language, racism, sexually explicit), and Jay Asher's "Thirteen Reasons Why"(Drugs/alcohol/smoking, sexually explicit, suicide). Also on the list, at No. 10, Nobel laureate Toni Morrison's "Beloved" (Sexually explicit, religious viewpoint, violence).

"It's pretty exciting to be on a list that frequently features Mark Twain, Harper Lee, and Maya Angelou," Pilkey said in a statement. "But I worry that some parents might see this list and discourage their kids from reading `Captain Underpants,' even though they have not had a chance to read the books themselves."

Activist Post: Report: New York Confiscating Firearm Permits From Citizens Legally Prescribed Anti-Anxiety Medication

 I find myself betwixt and between; with stories like these. I'm not right wing religious anti-gun control repub, neither am I a smug little leftie. I'm a leftie, but try my best not to be smug. How can I be? I belive in UFOs, aliens, angels, and Bigfoot.

Activist Post: Report: New York Confiscating Firearm Permits From Citizens Legally Prescribed Anti-Anxiety Medication: David A. Schmecker, a Navy veteran with no history of arrests or mental illness, had his guns confiscated during an illegal search of his home after he refused a forced psychological evaluation that was issued simply for seeking a follow-up pain management appointment.

Not having any past history of arrests or mental illness, Schmecker politely refused the evaluation, which was the beginning of what would end up being an illegal seizure of a patriotic veteran's guns during a search that was conducted without a warrant and without any regard for the law.

After Schmecker refused the evaluation, his doctor called his house and heard what he claimed was an "odd" answering machine message that apparently led the doctor to call the police and order a wellness check.

“The police came to my home, and, without any justification whatsoever, hauled me away for a psychiatric evaluation at a local hospital. I submitted to their forceful insistence under duress and fear of arrest or worse," Schmecker told Survive and Thrive TV.

Oregon: House Bill 3014 Would Make Pledge "At least once a day" Mandatory

Daily pledge of allegiance should be required in Oregon schools, lawmaker says | SALEM -- A southern Oregon lawmaker says public schools have become too lax about the Pledge of Allegiance so he has introduced a bill to require districts to buy and display flags in every classroom, and to require a recitation of the pledge at least once a day.
"At least once a day?" The obvious aside -- propaganda, indoctrination, and your general fascist overtones -- the dismal state of budget cuts, curriculum slashing, staff reductions, increased class sizes, and higher academic "standards" teachers and students must reach within this gloomy mess -- but we're going to have time to say the Pledge "at least once" every day?

Naturally, it's a Republican behind this faux feel good patriotic stance:  Rep. Sal Esquivel. House Bill 3014.

Note the language used in the following (italics mine):
Esquivel's bill essentially cracks down on schools that aren't flying flags or ensuring that students get a chance to recite the pledge. It removes language that says schools give students "the opportunity" to say the pledge at least once a week, and replaces it with a requirement that schools provide "a time at least once daily" for a school official or a student to lead students in the traditional flag salute.
"Cracks down."  He's also pushing for charter schools, which get precious little from school districts, to be included in the requirement.

Syngenta Charged for Covering up Livestock Deaths from GM Corn Occupy Monsanto

This is big news, actually. Post, share, link, etc. 
Syngenta Charged for Covering up Livestock Deaths from GM Corn Occupy Monsanto: Biotech giant Syngenta has been criminally charged with denying knowledge that its genetically modified (GM) Bt corn kills livestock during a civil court case that ended in 2007 [1].

Syngenta’s Bt 176 corn variety expresses an insecticidal Bt toxin (Cry1Ab) derived from the bacterium, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) and a gene conferring resistance to glufosinate herbicides. EU cultivation of Bt 176 was discontinued in 2007. Similar varieties however, including Bt 11 sweet corn are currently cultivated for human and animal consumption in the EU.
