From Kevin Annett No bomb that ever bursts shatters the crystal spirit

Hi everyone: Considering my upcoming journey to Europe, I thought it appropriate to share (below) what I wrote after being unlawfully incarcerated in a British prison and then deported, in May of 2011. This is especially made relevant with our criminal conviction of the traitorous Elizabeth Windsor and the nullification of the authority of the British "crown". So take heart! And enjoy. - Kevin Annett ........... No bomb that ever bursts shatters the crystal spirit: With Farid and others in a British prison by Kevin Annett May 31, 2011  I wear as a badge of honor my deportation from a country of liars and cut throats. - Big Bill Haywood, IWW leader and revolutionary, 1920 The filthy fiction calling itself the Crown of England finally vomited me from its midst this week, only five days before I was to speak of its crimes at the annual Against Child Abuse Rally in London's Trafalgar Square. I am proud to have shared a British prison with many freedom fighters over time, including my own free thinking ancestor Peter Annett, who was jailed and pilloried in London at the age of 70, in the year 1763, for writing "seditious blasphemy" against the Church of England. And that repression continues today, against innocent men and women still caught in the claws of the police state known as England. Here is what happened: The room is small, unventilated, and foul-smelling, and crammed with ten of us. I am the only white person there. A Malaysian mother with … [Read more...]

Report from Kesha Rogers Campaign from Larouche Pac

  Report from Kesha Rogers Campaign   February 27th, 2014 • 8:00 PM Here are two updated reports on the Kesha Rogers' for U.S. Senate campaign, Kesha is running for the Democratic seat in Texas, with the primary scheduled for March 4th. 1. Kesha Addresses The Woodlands Chamber of Commerce Kesha Rogers addressed an audience of approximately 200 attendees at a chamber of commerce held in north Houston. Kesha and one additional campaign organizer attended the event. The campaign had a literature table set up among other candidate tables in the back of the room that attracted a lot of attention, given that Kesha was the only Democrat in the room, but also, unlike the generic campaign tables set up, she shocked some people with her sign that read, “When Kesha Wins, Obama is Finished!,with a large picture of Kesha's face. They were the only table there with any real policy solutions displayed. Candidates were given two minutes to speak, and there were three other Republican Senate candidates there. In Kesha's speech, she began by introducing herself as a LaRouche Democrat, working with economist and statesman Lyndon LaRouche, who had addressed the group in 1996 when he was running for President. She went on to say that there are two grave problems threatening our nation, a lawless President Obama in the White House, who must be impeached now, and a bankrupt financial system. She called for the crushing of Wall St. through the immediate reinstatement of … [Read more...]

Global bank investigation sudden loss of witnesses for prosecutors

From Wayne Madsen Report February 24-25, 2014 -- SPECIAL REPORT. Global bank investigation results in sudden loss of witnesses for prosecutors A long ongoing transatlantic probe by prosecutors and investigators with the United Kingdom's Serious Fraud Office (SFO), the U.S. Department of Justice and Commodities Futures Trading Commission, European Union regulators, and the Financial Conduct Authority of the quasi-independent City of London has been hampered by the sudden deaths of several key witnesses, according to information conveyed to WMR by our sources on Wall Street. The investigation of major banks, including Barclays, JP Morgan, UBS, Citigroup, Royal Bank of Scotland, Lloyds, Deutsche Bank, Bank of America, Standard Chartered, HSBC, and Rabobank for manipulating the London interbank offered rate, or LIBOR, in order to maximize profits, has resulted in charges recently being brought against three Barclays executives, a derivatives trader with UBS and Citigroup, and two traders with the brokerage firm RP Martin by the SFO in London. However, WMR has been told that additional charges against more senior banking executives have been stymied by the sudden deaths of named or prospective witnesses on both sides of the Atlantic. Banks are alleged to have falsely reported the benchmark LIBOR rates used to lend money to one another in order to boost bonuses for bank executives. The collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008 and its ripple effect on the global economy has … [Read more...]

Allen Dulles rejected anti-Zionist group’s requests

February 19-20, 2014 -- Allen Dulles rejected anti-Zionist group's requests From Wayne Madsen Report  A series of documents uncovered from declassified CIA archives reveal that CIA director Allen Dulles rejected speaking before or issuing a statement to an anti-Zionist group called the American Council for Judaism. Although Dulles maintained close links between the wartime Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and the Gestapo during World War II, he helped expose "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" as a forgery to The Times of London and New York Times while serving at the U.S. embassy in Istanbul in 1921. Dulles also saw the establishment of a Zionist state in the Middle East as a natural outgrowth of the Balfour Declaration and the post-World War I Treaty of Versailles. During his time in Istanbul, Dulles became a close acquaintance of Chaim Weizmann, the father of modern Zionism. When it came to issuing a statement for the American Council on Judaism conference in Houston in March 1958, Dulles made his position on the group's goals clear. In a latter to the group's executive director Leonard Sussman, Dulles's executive officer at the CIA wrote, "In view of the nature of Mr. Dulles' position in the intelligence community, he regrets that he is not able to furnish you with a statement." In a February 4, 1958 briefing memo, Stanley J. Grogan, Dulles's assistant, wrote "This is a very delicate matter which involves a religious faith and a political movement, both … [Read more...]

Wayne Madsen Report Person’s of the Year

  WMR's Persons of the Year for 2013: Ed Snowden and Vladimir Putin December 27-30, 2013 -- WMR's Person of the Year It was a tough call. Who did more to change the course of history and influence news coverage in 2013 than any other person? It's a tie. Because National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower might be locked up in a U.S. Super Max prison had it not been for Russian President Vladimir Putin granting temporary political asylum to Snowden, we might not have learned as much as we have about the massive surveillance network operated by NSA and its over 45 partners around the globe. Therefore, WMR's Persons of the Year are Edward Snowden and Vladimir Putin. Putin also changed the course of history by cleverly authorizing his foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov (who is a definite runner-up as Person of the Year), to offer the destruction of Syria's chemical weapons in order to forestall a U.S. and NATO military attack on Syria. A U.S. attack may have helped bring an Al Qaeda and Saudi-dominated regime into power in Damascus with disastrous results for the Middle East, Russia, and the world. Israel would have remained as strong as ever because Al Qaeda and its Saudi patrons have never been a threat to Israel because of an obvious but secret non-aggression pact crafted between Riyadh and Jerusalem. Raspberries and "Bronx cheers" go to journalist/lawyer Glenn Greenwald and his new billionaire sponsor Pierre Omidyar for creating First Look … [Read more...]

Neocons Target Ukraine in “Orange Crush”

              Nuland, Kagan, Soros, Sharp crowd rally around Ukrainian protesters and the "Euromaidan Maiden," the lady with the "bagel" on her head, Yulia Tymoshenko.   December 12-13, 2013 -- Neocons target Ukraine in "Orange Crush" The neocons are still alive and active as ever inside Secretary of State John Kerry's State Department. Kerry's Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Victoria Nuland, who previously served as Hillary Clinton's State Department mouthpiece, has threatened sanctions against Ukraine. Ukraine, which resisted efforts by the European Union to integrate it into Europe's banker-led federation of austerity and poverty, came into the EU's cross hairs after it abandoned talks with Brussels and Berlin in favor of an economic union with Russia. That move triggered off what can be described as the "Second Orange Revolution," a mass street uprising in Kyiv's Maidan (Independence) Square that demanded the resignation of Ukraine's democratically-elected President and government. The connections between the Kyiv uprising and the EU outside manipulators are so apparent, the Kyiv square that has become the "Tahrir Square" of Ukraine is called "Euromaidan." This "Orange Crush" was spearheaded by the same George Soros/National Endowment for Democracy/CIA provocateur guru Gene Sharp hydra that saw the overthrow of Ukraine's government in 2004 in the so-called Orange … [Read more...]

Nickels A Tale of Dissociation by Christine Stark

  Nickels: A Tale of Dissociation By Christine Stark www.ChristineStark.com with an introduction by Anya Achtenberg Nickels follows a biracial girl named Little Miss So and So from age 4 into adulthood. Told in a series of prose poems, Nickels’ lyrical and inventive language conveys the dissociative states born of a world formed by persistent and brutal incest and homophobia. The dissociative states enable the child’s survival and, ultimately, the adult’s healing. The story is both heartbreaking and triumphant. Nickels is the groundbreaking debut of Minneapolis-area author and artist Christine Stark.   “Christine Stark has crafted a language and a diction commensurate with the shredding of consciousness that is a consequence of childhood sexual abuse. She brings a wholly original voice in a riveting novel of desperation and love. Nickels is narrated by Miss So and So, as her mother names her, from age 4 to 26, a character so compelling I never wanted to stop hearing from her. She names herself crazy girl, but the reader sees a different truth: there’s humor and cunning and ferocious love alive in those who survive. Stark enables the reader to inhabit the intricacy and chaos of this potent inner landscape, and we have not seen this before. Every sentence vibrates with a terrible beauty. Every sentence brings the news. ---Patricia Weaver Francisco, author of Telling: A Memoir of Rape and Recovery “To be taken into the mind of a child can be … [Read more...]
