A Sleeping Giant Awakens
And it's pissed off
By Ernest Stewart 

"I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." ~~~ Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto 

Here come da judge
Here come da judge
Here come da judge
Here come da judge
Laugh-In ~~~ Sammy Davis Jr.

"The Israeli step is another stick in the wheels of international efforts to resume the peace process; it will further poison the atmosphere. The Palestinians are seeking recognition and it is completely unacceptable for Israel to respond to a peaceful and legal move with a completely illegal response, which is the expansion of settlements." 
~~~ Ghassan Khatib, a spokesman for the Palestinian government ~~~ 

Well this could be the last time
This could be the last time
Maybe the last time
I don't know. Oh no. Oh no! 
The Last Time ~~~ The Rolling Stones 

Like Noam, I, too, wish our old friend Howard Zinn was still alive to see this new revolution which is in its infancy, a revolution that Howard predicted and did all in his power to achieve, especially in the last two decades of his life. Because revolution is exactly what the Occupy Movement is all about -- whether they know it or not!

Unlike our first two revolutions, this one is for real, a revolution of the proletariat, and not one of the elite. This is not about a bunch of the richest men in the country rebelling against foreign competition and electing the richest man amongst them as president, or like our second one, pitting the southern elites against the northern bankers. The first revolution was won for our elites; the second one was won for the banks. The first two were violent revolutions, the third -- so far at least -- is a peaceful one. Perhaps Mahatma's and Martin's ideals about peaceful resistance is sinking in.

I don't want to throw a monkey wrench in the works, but generally, these peaceful revolutions only work against the elites when the elites want them to, and then only after the blood of patriots is spilled upon the tree of liberty as is being done by local groups of storm troopers and gestapo from sea to oily sea!

The fix that they thought was in is beginning to unravel. As I've said on many occasions, what's been so scary in the last few decades is that things that were done behind closed and locked doors began more and more to be done in the open. The Sheeple had their little Matrixes and as long as they had a job, a car, and a roof was over their heads, they could ignore all the horrible things that were going on all around them, but the last few years has began to awaken that sleeping giant that Isoroku tried to warn his staff about -- the American people. I wonder how many CEOs understand just what Admiral Yamamoto was talking about? I bet all of them do! Finally, the people are beginning to awaken and realize that they been enslaved by our corpo-rat masters, and abandoned to their fate after they were used up by both parties and are finally madder than hell! It's about time, America, get up off the couch and into the streets before you no longer have a couch or a street to call home. Do it for the children, for our future, for your peace of mind. OCCUPY, OCCUPY, OCCUPY! 

In Other News 

Could there be some good news coming out of Oakland California? Could be, could be?

Long before they rioted on the Occupy protestors The Oakland PD had a terrible record of unnecessary violence, extortion, and framing innocent people -- not to mention killing a few innocent folks, too! Yes, I know, that could describe any modern police department; so how is Oakland different? Well, for one thing, most police departments are not being overseen by a US federal judge!

Since 2003, the Oakland PD has, because of past abuses, been operating under the monitoring of a federal judge overseeing a consent decree. The Bay Citizen said of it about a month before the this last police riot occurred:

In a hearing that exposed the breadth of the problems facing Oakland, a federal judge blasted the Oakland Police Department Thursday for failing to make court-ordered changes designed to reduce police misconduct and abuse.

Before a courtroom full of city leaders and police department brass, U.S. District Court Judge Shelton Henderson highlighted a series of issues that "indicate to me the city and the department still don't get it."

After that report came out, the the chief of the Oakland PD resigned and the San Francisco Chronicle said of his replacement in a getting-to-know article of the new interim chief Howard A. Jordan:
Jordan has been the Police Department's top authority on bringing the force into compliance with a consent decree ordered after four officers were accused more than a decade ago of systematically beating and framing suspects.

The consent decree is the most critical issue facing the department, as a federal judge warned last week that the city faces the possibility of having its police department placed in federal receivership due to its failure to fully comply with the court order. Such a move could result in the city losing control over its police budget, its biggest general fund expense.

Jordan, as interim chief, planned and directed the police action against Occupy Oakland supporters and because of that action he is this week's "Vidkun Quisling Award" winner. Congratulations, Chief Jordan; you deserve it!

This federal consent decree is separate from the accord that the OPD was compelled to reach in 2004, which prohibited the use of potentially lethal and harmful suppression techniques against peaceful crowds, so apparently they're in violation of both! What happens next is up to US District Court Judge Henderson. By all means do kick ass and take names, dude! 

And Finally 

I see where the Israeli PACs scored another worldwide embarrassment for the United States. You may remember back in 1990's, when they passed legislation that banned the financing of any UN organization that accepts Palestine as a full member? This week's vote, backed by 107 countries in UNESCO, was a symbolic victory for the Palestinian drive towards statehood.

Ergo, we won't be making our $80 million payment to UNESCO that is due in November. In case you're not hip, UNESCO's stated purpose is to "contribute to peace and security by promoting international collaboration through education, science, and culture in order to further universal respect for justice, the rule of law, and the human rights along with fundamental freedoms proclaimed in the UN Charter." No, we can't have that!

I can see why we wouldn't want to support an agency that's all about peace and security, when our job is to make war and murder millions on a pull of the puppet strings by Israel. We don't need no stinkin' peace and security. We're all about insecurity and war. Nor do we need to support education, science and culture; we want our robots to be willing and dumb!

Besides, we've kept the Palestinians slaves to Israel for the last 63 years with our veto power in the UN and have murdered millions over the years to keep the status quo, so those big bribery checks keep coming to the media, military and our politicians.

The United States also acknowledged that it would lose its right to vote in UN Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization if it makes no payments over the next two years, saying the Obama administration will need to consult Congress about the impact on US interests.

"We were to have made a 60 million dollar payment to UNESCO in November and we will not be making that payment," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters.

Nuland said the Palestinian admission "triggers longstanding (US) legislative restrictions which will compel the United States to refrain from making contributions to UNESCO."

Nuland echoed earlier remarks by the White House which said UNESCO's admission of the Palestinians as a full member was "premature" and undermined international peace efforts and hopes of direct talks on a Palestinian state.

"The vote is regrettable, premature and undermines our shared goal of a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East," Nuland said.

What a crock, Victoria; you know it; I know it; and the world knows it; so who you jivin' with that "cosmic debris?" We've had since 1947 to do something, and we didn't, so our chance of doing anything positive now is all but nil! Victoria went on:

"Under UNESCO's constitution, a member state will have no vote in the general conference if it gets more than two years in arrears in its contribution. So our actual arrearage status will begin in January.

We now need to have consultations with Congress.

Not paying our dues into these organizations could severely restrict and reduce our ability to influence them, our ability to act within them, and we think this affects US interests. So we need to have conversations with Congress about what options might be available to protect our interests."

This is bad enough, but it only gets worse from here. We can veto any resolution granting statehood in the Security Council, but our veto will be quickly overridden in the General Assembly, making us look like the dirty weasel bastards that we are to the world! 

Keepin' On 

I don't know for sure, but this maybe the last time I beg for money until 2012? I'd like to thank Ken from Asheville for his nice donation and with what Ernie from Ontario has sent, but hasn't arrived yet, we may have finally got enough to pay the bills!

Not only that, but from what I can tell, we may have gone another $30 over what we needed. If so, I've finally made a profit off this! If so, that will pay me around one US penny per hour for this year's work! Yippie; however, if you factor in the other ten years, it comes to about one mill per hour! In case you're wondering, a mill is a unit of measurement equal to 1/20 of a cent. Ergo, notify the folks down in Indiana to run another Subaru Outback down the line for me! If it were only so!

Still, it looks like, even in this Zeus-awful economy, it's getting better. As John and Paul once sang:

"I've got to admit it's getting better
A little better all the time (It can't get no worse)"
Onward and Upward, Ya'll!
