September 17 marks Occupy Wall Street's first anniversary. Appropriate activities are planned. At issue are popular over money power rights.
They matter everywhere. Chicago teachers demand them. So do parents and kids. September 17 marks day eight since strike action began.
City and union bosses want a bad deal approved. So far, Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) House of Delegates (HoD) members said no. On Sunday, they voted to keep striking. They want time for more information on contract terms. More on what's going on below.
On September 17, the Chicago Tribune headlined "Chicago teachers strike continues, Emanuel says he will sue to force end," saying:
An apparent deal unraveled. On Sunday, HoD members surprised. "Get it right," they chanted! It's woefully short and then some.

In her first response to the killing of the American ambassador and three others in Libya, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she had asked herself the question that many Americans were asking - how it could have happened?
The most likely answer, it seems to me, is that it was a well planned terrorist attack not a spontaneous happening, not part of the protest against video clips of a film that denigrates and insults the Prophet Muhammad and Islam. Some 24 hours before the attack al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri released a video on Jihadist forums. In it he acknowledged the death of his second in command, Abu Yahya, and urged Libyans to avenge his killing. (Abu Yahya was killed by a US drone strike - an American targeted assassination - in Pakistan’s tribal region of Waziristan on 4 June).

He's undisciplined, unchecked, and unambiguous. He never knows when to leave well enough alone. He makes more enemies than friends. He's a consummate loudmouth bully. He hurls unrestrained verbal assaults. More on that below.
He presides over Israel's worst government. It's belligerent, hardline, and neoliberal. It's offensive to both Jews and Arabs. He menaces the entire region and beyond.
His finger on Israel's nuclear trigger should worry everyone. Maybe he'll squeeze during one of his frequent tantrums.

As the economic crisis in the Occupied Territories deepens, Palestinians are looking to their leadership for someone to blame.
The Palestinian Authority (PA) is facing the severest political and economic crisis since its establishment following the Oslo Accords in 1993 as tens of thousands of Palestinians have been taking to the streets, protesting the high costs of living and demanding the downfall of the Ramallah regime.
In Hebron, the largest district in the West Bank, as many as 40,000 protesters demonstrated Monday against the government of Prime Minister Salam Fayyad along with PA President Mahmoud Abbas. "Fayyad: leave, leave, leave. The people wants you no more!" and "The people want to topple the president!" were chanted recurrently.

It's in the air. You can smell and taste it. It's not pleasant. Union bosses and city officials struck a deal. A previous article headlined Capitulation in Chicago?
Final details aren't known, but bet on it. It's baked in the cake. By the time this article circulates, it may be official. It practically is now.
Unions in Chicago and across America ill represented rank-and-file members for decades. Corporate and government negotiators know it. Beating labor means staying hardline and waiting them out. They'll cave like they always do.

The hate machine, lie machine, and the money machine are all on full blast with intent to kill any chance progressives and liberals have standing—especially President Obama and some Senators.
But why is Netanyahu demanding war with Iran ‘now’ as arguing there is no reason to wait—yet he has ‘never’ proven his allegations (nor should we trust information coming from their camp)?
And how convenient this mysterious Anti-Muslim video shows up in the right hot spots to set off protests across the Arab world, as if an October Surprise, to create the likeness of frustration with Jimmy Carter and lingering American hostages in Iran, whilst Ronald Reagan won the presidency (as the hostages were released the very next day after he became President in secret agreement)?

People often ask me why the West doesn't attempt a Libya-style intervention in Syria. After all, things are going so well in Libya. Oil production is up. But oil production is merely a mirage, as is security in Libya, which was doomed from the day one PG (post-Gaddafi) because of the way it was "liberated".
Last Wednesday, US envoy to Libya Christopher Stevens was killed along with three other American diplomats in a rocket attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.
What about the oil, that global elixir? Well, the violence will not bode well for Libya's production ambitions, coming at a time when the country looked prepared for a boost in output and was banking on this for economic growth.
Until April 5, 2013 the 1984 American science fiction-horror film, directed by John Carpenter could be streamed or downloaded from a number of websites. They Live (Full movie) was in the playlist below created by Buddy Huggins.
These days you can’t swing a cat or open your mailbox without being hit by a flood of emails about the memorials, tributes, condolences, and donation sites for the victims of these tragedies that the conspiracy theorists say were created -- not right after the event, but right before the event.
