* Watch video of protesters getting sprayed with pepper spray, from the August, 2008 standoff .
When a Jefferson County deputy deployed pepper spray into a crowd during the first night of the Democratic National Convention, he did not know that his targets were undercover Denver police officers.
During a melee that occurred Aug. 25 between protesters, police and bystanders near Civic Center Park, undercover Denver detectives staged a struggle with a police commander in order to get out of the crowd undetected.
A Jefferson County deputy, unaware of the presence of undercover police, thought that the commander was being attacked and deployed the pepper spray, according to a police use-of-force report obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado.
The report does not say whether the pepper spray used on the undercover police officers was the first deployment or whether the melee already was underway.
About 106 people were arrested during the incident that took place at 15th Street and Court Place.
Denver police have testified during court trials that they deployed officers to the area that night because they had gathered intelligence that anarchists had planned to gather in Civic Center Park, then move toward the 16th Street… Continue reading

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The FBI tracked about 108,000 potential terrorism threats
or suspicious incidents from mid-2004 to November 2007, but most were found
groundless, a Justice Department review found on Friday.
The department’s office of inspector general gave the figure in an audit of
the FBI’s terrorism case-tracking system, called Guardian, launched in 2002
after the September 11 attacks.
"The FBI determined that the overwhelming majority of the threat information
documented in Guardian had no nexus to terrorism. However, as a result of information
reported in Guardian the FBI initiated over 600 criminal and terrorism-related
investigations from October 2006 to December 2007," the inspector general’s
The report did not discuss the result of the investigations.
FBI policy requires that each threat or suspicious incident reported by the
public or other government agencies and law enforcement officers be reviewed
to determine whether there is a link to terrorism.
The report expressed concern over delays in the development of a related system,
called E-Guardian, for sharing terrorism-related information with local law
enforcement. It said the automated Guardian system had improved since it was
first implemented, and the number of incidents tracked had grown dramatically.
FBI spokesman John Miller said the agency had implemented steps to resolve
concerns and it accepted recommendations made by the inspector general.

© Diana Ralph, Ph.D.Abstract
The 9-11 attacks were the pretext which sold the myth of evil Muslim terrorists imminently threatening Americans. That tale allowed the Cheney-led members of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) to implement their 1990 DPG plan for world control. The “war on terror” has nothing to do with protecting the U.S. and world’s people from “terrorists”, and everything to do with securing the American empire abroad and muzzling democracy and human rights at home. Designed to inspire popular support for U.S. wars of world conquest, it is modeled on Islamophobic stereotypes, policies, and political structures developed by the Israeli Likkud and Bush Sr. since 1979. To defeat this plan, we must overcome our Islamophobic fear of “terrorists” and stand in solidarity with Muslims.

A COPY OF ORWELL’S ‘NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR’ SENT TO EVERY MP
An Internet grass-roots campaign will this week deliver a copy of George Orwell’s prophetic novel ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’ to every Member of Parliament.
The books will be inscribed with the words, ‘This book was a warning, not a blueprint’, and will arrive at Parliament on or before November 5th — a date of well known historical significance for that building.
Outraged by the continual attack upon civil liberties within our nation, a fortnight ago the Libertarian Party proposed reminding those in Westminster who they were elected to serve, and in whose interests the laws that they pass are meant to function.
Spread purely by word of mouth, a campaign to send each Member of Parliament their own copy of Orwell’s dystopian classic met with overwhelming support on the Internet, with many more books pledged than the 646 required to ensure that every one of our elected representatives receive a personal copy. The Libertarian Party contributed just 75 books itself, with the remainder coming (directly, or via campaign donations) from people of all political parties, and of none.
The UK Libertarian Party leader, Ian Parker-Joseph, explained, “As the people of Britain become ever more spied upon and ever more heavily taxed, as the government attempts to control how much we should smoke, eat and drink, as the state legislates to regulate ever more the minutiae of our lives, the Libertarian… Continue reading
Live election coverage will be available, for those of you who wish to find something other than corporate media, from several places. Here are two:
NoLiesRadio will broadcast live, beginning Tuesday at 4:00 pm Pacific – 7:00 pm Eastern – 11:00 GMT. (See note from NoLiesRadio below).
Free Speech Radio News will broadcast updates throughout the day and night. Listen at KKFI, and many other sources. See http://www.fsrn.org/content/election2008 for more details.
NoLiesRadio statement: We are covering the election results LIVE as we did all of the Presidential and Vice Presidential debates. We are authorized to carry the broadcast feed.
Given the fact that the two previous presidential elections were stolen, we believe it to be imperative that the people be extremely vigilent about this election. We will have extensive coverage on vote theft in addition to the election results themselves. We are also arming the people with facts and help as to what to do if they feel they have been swindled or cheated at the polls Tuesday, and if for some reason McCain makes a last minute victory that smells fishy, we are encouraging the folks to gather on Nov 5th in assemblies throughout the nation to fight back. This election could become part of the WAKE-UP call that will bring Americans out of their deep slumber and possibily give rise to becoming more sensitive regarding 911truth.
And we also believe that after… Continue reading

from Velvet Revolution blog
Yesterday, after a contentious three hour hearing in an Akron, Ohio federal court, the judge ordered Bush/Rove IT expert Michael Connell to submit to a two hour deposition less than 24 hours before the start of the 2008 election. The Court ruled that Ohio attorney Cliff Arnebeck can question Connell under oath about Man in the Middle computer manipulations, the use of Trojan horses to control election results from a remote location, and the role of Triad in election manipulations.
However, in a strange twist, the judge agreed with demands from Connell’s attorney to keep under seal any testimony about threats and intimidation of Connell by others including Karl Rove. This is seen as necessary to protect possible criminal charges against those who may have engaged in obstruction of justice in this case.
A couple of notes here: We believe that Connell should not pull an Alexander Butterfield by waiting for a direct question from Mr. Arnebeck as to what he knows about rigged elections. Instead, Connell should be prepared to come clean from the start knowing that this is just the beginning of the inquiry. We have lots of names and lots of people providing us information about these rigged elections. Connell is not longer under the protectorate of the Bush family. There is a new dynamic here and Connell can either fight it and go down with the ship or get out in front and cooperate with full immunity for him… Continue reading

Bead Collective, Twin Cities Indymedia, and other independent media activists
have released a new film, ‘Terrorizing Dissent’, an exposé of events
at the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Featuring first-person accounts and footage from more than forty cameras on
the streets, ‘Terrorizing Dissent’ focuses on the story of dissent suppressed.
People charged with “conspiracy to riot in furtherance of terrorism”
speak out against the government’s campaign to manipulate media coverage and
label civil disobedience and community organizing as terrorism.
“If civil disobedience becomes framed as ‘terrorism’ … that’s baloney.
And the reason they’re waving the T-word around, there’s one reason and
one reason only, because they want to squash dissent and they want to justify
what the police do in the effort of squashing that dissent.”
Michelle Gross, Communities United Against Police Brutality
‘Terrorizing Dissent’ shows the results of the $50 million dollars the Department
of Homeland Security gave to local authorities for security — a large
chunk of which went to weaponize the police — and the $10 million insurance
policy contract between the RNC Host Committee and the City of St. Paul, which
shattered Minnesota’s civil compact between protesters and police.

“Plan por la Verdad”
Richard Gage, Tour Europeo, 2008
Hace más de siete años desde el 11 de Septiembre de 2001 y los detalles de ese horrible día están empezando a decaer en la mente del público, pero son pocos los que niegan que los cambios en política interior y exterior de todo el mundo después del 11-S sigan afectando a nuestras vidas.
Tanto por los millones de víctimas en Irak y Afganistán, o la legislación antiterrorista que ha comenzado a desmantelar las libertades civiles de los europeos, o el aumento de la vigilancia estatal en Europa, el 11-S ha tenido un efecto sobre todos nosotros.
A pesar de que han pasado más de siete años, aumentan tanto las dudas sobre la versión oficial del 11-S como las preocupaciones por sus consecuencias nefastas. No hay mejor indicador de esto que las numerosas teorías alternativas,… Continue reading

pretty last minute event. I have known Don Kazak for years; he has written a

Palo Altan Carol Brouillet, who is the Green Party candidate running against
Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Palo Alto, will get her message on TV with a 30-second
ad scheduled to start running Wednesday.
Brouillet said the ads will run more than 200 times in the 14th Congressional
District at or near prime time on cable channels CNN, Fox and CNBC. Because
the ads are just running in the district, “they aren’t that expensive,”
Brouillet has long been a critic of the government’s explanation of what
happened on Sept. 11, 2001, when the World Trade Towers were demolished by
terrorists who hijacked commercial jetliners.
“A number of documentaries have questioned the official explanation
of 9/11,” Brouillet said. “Internationally, people are questioning
the official story.”

Scholars for 9-11 Truth & Justice Misrepresented in Draft Bill Sent to 8 House
Berkeley, CA, October 22, 2008 — On October 18, 2008, an OpEdNews article titled,
"8 House Members View Draft Bill on Independent Science/Tech Probe of WTC
1, 2, 7 Collapses," was published by four members of the group Scholars for
9/11 Truth & Justice (STJ911.org). The authors of the article and draft bill
are not spokespersons for Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice, and therefore
are individually responsible for it.
Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice does not endorse the draft bill due to the
inclusion of numerous unscientific claims and misrepresentations, and condemns
in the strongest of terms any associations between the organization and the claims
presented by the authors of this bill. As stated at the front page of their website,
Scholars for 9-11 Truth and Justice "take[s] care to present the strongest,
most credible research available…"
While in agreement with the authors of this bill that a new investigation into
the tragic events of September 11, 2001 is warranted, representatives of the Scholars
group note that the draft bill and article lack basic scientific rigor and credibility,
with statements such as, "the entire WTC [complex] was destroyed by directed
energy weaponry (DEW)," and the ideas that "nuclear materials, missiles
or DEW weapons were used." The sister publication of the Scholars group,
The Journal of 9/11 Studies… Continue reading

Latest Update 11/08/08
Thanks to www.historycommons.org, DHS, and simuvac. This is dedicated to the 9/11 Truth Movement.
Before I begin, I would like to say that theorizing about what happened on 9/11, when you’re not being given answers to your questions about that day by the people who SHOULD be able to do so, is PERFECTLY normal. As is suspecting that the reason these answers aren’t being given is “sinister” in nature. As Ray McGovern said, “for people to dismiss these questioners as “conspiratorial advocates”, or “conspiratorial theorists”… that’s completely out of line because the… The questions remain because the President who should be able to answer them, WILL NOT.” When you think about everything this Administration has done in almost 8 years, the idea that they might not be giving us the answers we seek because of something “sinister” is not crazy. In fact, it’s the most logical conclusion one can come to at this point. After seven plus years of obfuscation, spin, lies, and cover-ups regarding the 9/11 attacks, it is unavoidable to think that criminal complicity is the reason why.
That being said, we have not proven it beyond the shadow of doubt. We do not have documentation that shows they planned it. We do not have a signed confession from someone. We have pieces of the puzzle, and to most of us that have been doing this a long time, those pieces point to more than just Osama Bin Laden,… Continue reading

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. – John Feal, founding president of the FealGood Foundation and a demolition expert who worked at Ground Zero following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, will bring his message to Upshur County students and residents on Friday, Oct. 24. Feal and up to seven other first responders will meet with students at Buchannon Upshur High School beginning at 8:30 a.m. The group will meet with the community later in the day.
Feal, like 70 percent of 9/11 workers, suffers from post-9/11 illnesses. One of his feet had to be amputated after being crushed by an eight-ton steel beam. He also suffers from a respiratory syndrome called World Trade Center Cough and posttraumatic stress disorder.
Feal agreed to visit West Virginia after some Buckhannon-Upshur High School students contacted him via e-mail after watching a documentary in health educator Mateal Poling’s class. The documentary, Save the Brave, chronicles the daily struggles of 9/11 Ground Zero workers in the seven years since the attacks. Greg Quibell, one of the men featured, died of his injuries the day before the film’s premiere in New York.
“You have no idea how excited they were when Feal replied — me too,” Poling said. “It is hard to imagine that these kids were only first and second graders on 9/11, but thanks to Feal’s efforts, our students are starting to have a better understanding of the profound effects of that day.”
Feal said he is “humbled and honored to meet such amazing Americans.”
“They are a reflection of the teacher who has taught them well,” Feal said.…Continue reading

For over two years now I have been speaking and writing about what I call deep events. I mean by deep events the traumatic and unexpected episodes that recur periodically in US history and alter it, nearly always for the worse. These deep events can never be properly analyzed or understood, because of an intelligence dimension which results in a socially imposed veil of silence, both in the government and in the Mainstream Media.
The more that I look at these deep events comparatively, ranging over the past five decades, the more similarities I see between them, and the more I understand them in the light of each other. I hope in this paper to use analogies from the murder of JFK and 9/11 to cast new light on the murders of Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy.1
I began this analysis in 2006 by comparing the JFK assassination with 9/11. I drew attention to over a dozen similarities, of which today I will be focusing on only four:
1) the remarkable and puzzling speed with which those in power identified what I call the designated culprits (Lee Harvey Oswald and the 19 alleged hijackers),
2) the self-incriminating trail allegedly left by the culprits themselves — such as the bundle that James Earl Ray is said to have conveniently left in a doorway on his way to his car. Oswald was said to have carried a flagrantly falsified draft card identifying… Continue reading

Are Made-for-TV Elections Pre-Empting Real Elections?
Greetings from New Haven–
I’m sure you’ve noticed it. They’re doing it now to John
McCain by saying he can’t win. They did it to Hillary Clinton in the primaries
when she wouldn’t give in. And they’ve done it in other elections,
like when they projected Reagan the winner over Jimmy Carter in 1980 with polls
still open from coast to coast. Why can’t they wait for the system to
