UN Report on Congo: A Boeing 727 From Florida, US Stonewalling, and Gold for Dubai
By Georgianne Nienaber
From New York to Singapore, hundreds of major news organizations, including the New York Times, the BBC, the Associated Press, Reuters, and the Voice of America utilized the worst possible news cycle to announce that they were in receipt of a "leaked" United Nations Report detailing:
• Arms shipments or suspected shipments to the DRC from Spain, North Korea, Ukraine, Iran, Libya, China, Belgium, Tanzania, the British Virgin Islands and others;
• Roman Catholic and Spanish networks of support to the FDLR and other rebel groups;
• Recruitment of soldiers from Rwandan refugee camps;
• Violations of international humanitarian law;
• Impediments in the disarmament process;
• Wanted war criminal General Bosco Ntaganda's parallel military operations;
• Recruitment of child solders;
• Obstruction of humanitarian access in eastern DRC; and
• Linkage between the exploitation of natural resources and the financing of illegal armed groups which reach all the way to Dubai and North Korea and include the purchase of a Boeing 727 aircraft originating at the Opa-Locka Executive Airport in Florida.
The Security Council was scheduled to take up discussion of the final report on November 25, and when it appeared the report might be altered or scuttled, it was "leaked" (released) to every news organization on the planet. Considering that the United States, China, France, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom and rotating member Uganda are all on the Security Council and all have been implicated in the report, it is no wonder the report was disseminated by rogues before it was dissected. Sources say China is especially eager to edit and delay the report and has demanded that it be translated into five additional languages before its "official" release.
The "leak" turned into a tsunami as hundreds of news organizations declared an exclusive on this "new" information.

Of Cerberus, and blackest midnight born,
In Stygian Cave forlorn
‘Mongst horrid shapes, and shrieks, and sights unholy,
Find out som uncouth cell…
- John Milton, “L’Allegro”
Blackwater in reality is no different than Murder Incorporated on an international level. Blackwater is a cancer on humanity.

Paint it black
Yet another wake-up call from Gerald Celente. The greatest bank robbery in history is still going on, but it is the banks doing the robbing. All you can do is prepare yourself for the worst and fight for the best. If you have a plan, you can at least protect yourself if everything does go to Hell.

Meet a revolutionary artist, freedom fighter and survivor: Emory Douglas
Video Interview with Emory Douglas: The Angola 3, the Prison-Industrial Complex, and Abolishing Solitary Confinement
By Angola 3 News
Emory Douglas first served as the art director for the Black Panther Partys newspaper, and later served as Minister of Culture until 1980. Throughout these years, Douglas iconic artwork was published in the BPP newspaper and beyond. His artwork is featured in the new book entitled Black Panther: The Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas. For more information about Douglas, please visit:
Douglas was interviewed in San Francisco by Angola 3 News in October 2009. This is the first segment of our interview to be released. In this segment, Douglas speaks about the Angola 3, the prison-industrial complex, and abolishing solitary confinement.
37 years ago in Louisiana, 3 young black men were silenced for trying to expose continued segregation, systematic corruption, and horrific abuse in the biggest prison in the US, an 18,000-acre former slave plantation called Angola. In 1972 and 1973 prison officials charged Herman Wallace, Albert Woodfox, and Robert King with murders they did not commit and threw them into 6x9 ft. cells in solitary confinement, for over 36 years. Robert was freed in 2001, but Herman and Albert remain behind bars.
Angola 3 News is an official project of the National Coalition to Free the Angola 3.

Do not look at this if you have a weak stomach. The Marines bragged how they "kicked ass" in Fallujah, meaning that they used their billion dollar, highly lethal, often loaded with depleted uranium weapons systems to devastate a city that dared to fight back against the unlawful occupation of their country.
But we're spreading democracy some will say. Right, you can see what we've spread in these pictures.
The Marines only kicked their humanity into the gutter, only this and nothing more. That's the price you pay for being in the employ of the decadent Empire.

"Tales of the Islander" is off of Caroline Herring's fifth album,
Golden Apples of the Sun, her most intimate and mature album to date, which combines haunting originals with some surprising new takes on old standards.
"Tales of the Islander" is inspired by the life of the famous Mississippi painter, naturalist and writer, Walter Anderson, and this video utilizes his amazing watercolors for the visuals.
Herring has created an album that at once recalls the folk heyday of the 1960s and 70s while also sounding entirely fresh and new. You can check it out and/or buy it out at Caroline's website: http://carolineherring.com/

What is the real CIA goal here? To establish in the minds of Americans and the rest of the world that there is a vast terrorist threat by getting as many false confessions as possible to rationalize the government's geopolitical aggressions.

What a damning article this is, one comparing the rebuilding of New Orleans to the rebuilding of Lebanon. So-called "terrorist" Hezbollah is doing a much better job for its people than our "government (crooks, liars, thieves)" is doing for the people of New Orleans. I thought terrorists are cartoons who only blow-up people, so what is wrong with this entire picture as well as our rhetoric and perspective?
