Trader Joe Non-Oppressed
The Portland African American Leadership Forum sent a blistering email to PDC leaders and Mayor Charlie Hales Wednesday demanding the urban renewal agency suspend the Trader Joe's development and all tax-increment-financed projects in the Interstate Corridor urban renewal area.Trader Joe's pulled out of the deal, so the really oppressed residents get to keep their 2.9 million dollar vacant lot vacant.
The lot is currently vacant and has been for years.
PAALF, established in 2009, is a group of African American leaders united around an agenda of equity in education, economic development, housing and health issues.
The Trader Joe's development will increase displacement of low-income residents and "increase the desirability of the neighborhood," for "non-oppressed populations," PAALF wrote.
PDC's board authorized selling the land, valued at $2.9 million last December, to Majestic Realty for just $502,160 last month. PAALF said the subsidized deal benefits "one of the richest families in the country."
I guess no one thought that maybe some of the oppressed residents might get a job there and be able to improve their lives? Or that maybe the rising tide of an improved economy and more affluent residents might lift some of the more oppressed residents out of poverty?
Or maybe the community organizers got worried that maybe their captive population of disadvantaged people might get away and they'd end up having to get a real job?

Turban Durbin Joins Communists And Anarchists At May Day 'Celebration'
Senator Durbin, a man of many hats:
Meanwhile, in Seattle, the ' celebration' turned violent and a good time was had by (mostly) all anarchists, blackbloc, communists, marxists, anon, occupy, clowns and 'super heroes'. The Seattle PD, on twitter, continued to show a 'sense of humor' while also alerting law abiding citizens on how to avoid the 'marchers'
Another superhero dispute in 700 block E. Pike. Situation has resolved itself
A group of @Seattlepd officers can now say they came to the aid of a group of superheroes.
[twitter person to SeattlePD]@SeattlePD someone in the march must be following your twitter because every time you seem to announce their direction they change it LOL
[SeattlePD]Keep an eye on your satellite images. We'll see if we can get them to spell out "We Love You SPD

Why Are Two Chicago Teachers Union [CTU] Thugs Concerned With Penis Sizes?
Jeremy Segal [aka Rebel Pundit] was assaulted covering the CTU march against school closures.
By Steve Gunn"Penis size"?
CHICAGO – The Chicago Teachers Union and the Chicago Police Department were obviously working in tandem last Wednesday, and EAGnews reporter Jeremy Segal was an unwanted party crasher.
Why else would the police arrest two union supporters for allegedly assaulting Segal during a union protest, then turn around and let them go without pursuing charges?
Segal was in Chicago Wednesday to film and interview protesters participating in a downtown rally against the planned closing of 54 public schools.
The rally was sponsored by the radical Chicago Teachers Union. Segal spent part of his time interviewing CTU President Karen Lewis, who stood mute for most of his questions, and the Rev. Jesse Jackson, who answered a few.
A while after his first encounter with Lewis and Jackson, Segal noticed a banner at the head the protest march representing the International Socialist Organization. He returned to where Lewis and Jackson were walking together, hoping to ask Jackson a question about the propriety of protesting with socialists[...]
Despite the obvious injustice of the incident, Segal said he probably will not pursue the matter any further.
“I wasn’t planning on it,” he said. “They didn’t hurt me. But I do think they infringed on my rights. They infringed on my First Amendment right to conduct my business. Jesse Jackson and Karen Lewis never told me to stop asking questions. None of their handlers or staff asked me to stop asking questions. If they felt I was in the wrong, they would have gone to the police to get rid of me.
“Instead they put the union muscle on me.”
Lame and childish and just think, these people teach children.

The Communists Are Coming
Actually they are already here.
And Pravda, Yes Pravda former state media of the USSR warns American to hold on to their guns.
Written by Stanislav Mishin, the opinion piece, titled “Americans, never give up your guns,” begins:You know what they say, it takes one to know one... heh.
These days, there are few few things to admire about the socialist, bankrupt and culturally degenerating USA, but at least so far, one thing remains: the right to [bear] arms and use deadly force to defend one’s self and possessions.
...One of the first things [the Soviets] did was to disarm the population. From that point, mass repression, mass arrests, mass deportations, mass murder, mass starvation were all a safe game for the powers that were. The worst they had to fear was a pitchfork in the guts or a knife in the back or the occasional hunting rifle. Not much [to worry about] for soldiers.

Sporks at DailyKOS: Great Idea! A War on Guns!
Since Kossacks control the police state.... they can create a whole new class of criminal called NRA Republicans.
The very first thing we need is national registry. We need to know where the guns are, and who has them. Canada has a national firearms registry. We need to copy their model. We need a law demanding all firearms be registered to a national database. We need to know who has them and where they are. We need to make this as easy as possible for gun owners. The federal government provides the money and technical expertise, and the State police carry it out. Like a funded mandate..
Now we get down to it. The registration period has passed. Now we have criminals without registered guns running around. Probably kooky types that "lost" them on a boat or something.
...I'm not so concerned with the guy who bought that bolt action Mauser a decade ago and doesn't have anything registered to his name. It's a pretty good possibility that he sold it, gave it away, or got rid of it somehow. And even if he didn't, that guy is not who I'm concerned with. I'm concerned that other guy who bought a half dozen assault weapons, registered two hunting rifles, and belongs to the NRA/GOA. He's the guy who warrants a raid.
Better practice that kids.

Video: Bill Ayers explains the left's power is in schools and classrooms
Indeed. Via EAGNews
NEW YORK – Terrorist turned teacher Bill Ayers appeared at a recent Big Apple gathering of “Change the Stakes,” an anti-testing group comprised mostly of teachers and parents. At least two employees of the New York City Board of Education were there as well.Socialist brainwashing continues in our schools and colleges and it sucks.
EAGnews obtained exclusive video of the event and will be releasing more clips in the coming days.
But first we would like to present Ayers’ statement on the power of radical socialist educators in today’s public schools. It should send chills down every parent’s spine.

Some Red reading material for you:
Communist Party USA leader Sam Webb, has hailed the election of Party “friend” Barack Obama, as the “dawn of a new era.”From Russia:
The Party is cock-a-hoop over Obama’s victory, seeing it as both a repudiation of the conservative agenda and an opportunity to move the United States further towards socialism.
From the People’s World:[More...]
Congratulations!” Medvedev tweeted in English to Barack Obama, who emerged victorious in a tight race against Mitt Romney.Also, a reminder to bronco bamma, love Putin:
“Obama is an understandable and predictable partner,” Medvedev told reporters on Wednesday. “Obama has been a quite successful president.”
Meanwhile, the Russian premier expressed his relief that Republican candidate Mitt Romney, known for his anti-Russia outbursts on the campaign trail, had lost the election.[More...]
Russia expects Barack Obama to show more flexibility in a dispute over U.S. missile defense plans in Europe following his re-election as president, a top official said Thursday…Forward! Comrades
In March, Obama, unaware that he was speaking on an open microphone, told Dmitry Medvedev, then Russia’s president, that he would have more flexibility on the issue after the November election.
Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin appeared to be trying to remind Obama of his promise when he said Thursday that Moscow hopes that the U.S. president will listen to Russia’s concerns about the U.S.-led NATO missile defense for Europe.[More..]

Obama Not Communist Enough For His Former Professor Roberto Mangabeira Unger
You might be trolled into listening to the Harvard Professor's speech on how Communism will save America by the line, "Obama must be defeated."
But the professor is angry at Obama for failing to really push hard for more socialist policy. His argument is, "Insist on a high level of taxation" on everyone. Then institute an even higher tax on the wealthy. He then works though a series of wealth redistribution policies without ever using the word redistribution.
Recombination of ideas and of things...For a kinder gentler even more hip communism than Obi-One can possibly imagine.
In Roberto Unger's view the Democratic Party can only achieve true Neo-Communism if its leader Barack Obama is replaced by even more communist Neo-Communists.

IVAW & Other Far Left Groups Join The Taliban in Protesting the NATO Summit in Chicago
The Taliban (aka The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan) announced on their English language website(yes, it's still there), a call for all Americans and NATO member countries to protest the NATO conference.
The colonial game of the Americans is a total failure in Afghanistan. We call upon the nation of America and the NATO member countries to arrange large scale protests prior to the Chicago conference.The far left group, Iraq Veterans Against the War (aka IVAW), are joining in and some members will be returning their "medals of honor" (bullshit) to visiting NATO Generals
Democracy Now: Veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will join thousands of protesters this Sunday at the NATO summit in Chicago. We speak to Iraq Veterans Against the War’s Aaron Hughes, who’s among a number of Afghanistan and Iraq war vets planning to return their medals of honor[bullshit] to visiting NATO generals. "[Veterans] have to live with [the] failed policy [of the global war on terror] on a daily basis," Hughes says. "Milblogger, Jon Lilyea at This Ain't Hell, takes to task this "veteran" and the bs he spewed in the video at above link.
We talked about Aaron Hughes the other day. He was a truck driver stationed in Kuwait and drove supplies into Iraq in the early months of the war and now he’s the head spokesperson for IVAW in Chicago based on his unique view of the war in Afghanistan.Every far left group imaginable have joined with the Taliban to protest the NATO summit. Even clowns!
Tom sends us this video from Democracy Now! in which Aaron is interviewed by Amy Goodman and Nermeen Shaikh because he’s threatening to throw his GWOT Medal and his Army Commendation Medal at NATO this weekend in Chicago.
Well, in reality, the Taliban were late to the game. Their call to protest was yesterday.
Why waste a good headline?

Not too many people remember May Day last year. Of course, a few videos and images made their way onto the cables before the evening news that Sunday. But as I was going through footage of the Haymarket Riot Reenactment in Chicago that I covered earlier that day, news broke of a big announcement coming from the White House and nobody knew what it was. About 15 minutes later, hundreds of college kids were chanting “USA, USA,” outside the White House, celebrating the death of Osama Bin Laden.
Subsequently, there was zero coverage of May Day[Continue reading to understand the video below]

Anarchy 101: How Wisconsin's Left Embraces Chaos
http://eagnews.orgA commenter had this observation
EAGnews.org has produced an exclusive video report disclosing who and what were behind the massive demonstrations, the occupation of the Capitol in Madison, and extreme tactics employed to stop Walker's reforms from being enacted.
Titled "Anarchy 101: How Wisconsin's Left Embraces Chaos," the report takes us through the protests, legal challenges and subsequent recall efforts of 2011 and 2012. It features Brett Healy and Brian Fraley of the MacIver Institute, Collin Roth of Media Trackers, an unidentified citizen journalist on the ground for many of the protests, and State Sen. Alberta Darling, a target of death threats, intimidation tactics, and a failed recall attempt last year.
It also features two teachers, including Kenosha's Kristi Lacroix, and a school board member who would not be silenced by the radicals' intimidation tactics and spoke to EAGnews about the benefits of Scott Walker's reforms
You had a shot of Ben Manski chatting with another redhead. That was John Nichols writer for the Nation and a socialist provocateur. He carried a bullhorn during the Siege the Capitol.Carry on Comrades..

#OccupyAlbany: Occupiers Meet With An All-Star Cast Of Domestic Terrorists
A recent meeting titled The Weather Underground Meets Occupy Wall Street, held in a small city in upstate New York, was billed as a mundane book event to celebrate U.S. “political prisoner” David Gilbert's new memoir, Love and Struggle.As DMartyr always notes:
But, as revealed in a newly released video, the forum featured characters that were anything but mundane--the list reading like a veritable who’s-who of former Weather Underground activists. These were not simply low-level members but some of the more notorious radicals in the movement--men and women with ties to the infamous Bill Ayers, individuals with ties to bombing schemes on military servicemen, and convicted cop-killers
The video features only the introductory 16-minute segment and not the entire length of the Underground/Occupy meeting. Regardless, it remains quite revealing. One of the hosts of the event, Naomi Jaffe, praises Kathy Boudin, a close Ayers associate who was involved in a bomb plot gone wrong[More...]

Michigan Teacher's Union Manual Reads Like Alinsky's 'Rules For Radicals'
“For more than two years, the Michigan Education Association [MEA] has had a manual that urges its members to use students as propaganda in contract negotiations and also lays out how to organize strikes,” writes Tome Gantert of Michigan Capitol Confidential. [...]
While much of the rhetoric in this “crisis planning” handbook is unsettling (”The worst time to plan for a crisis is when you are in the middle of one, so crisis planning should commence at the same time that planning for actual bargaining begins”), perhaps the most disturbing moment occurs when one section appears to quote almost verbatim Saul Alinksy’s “Rules For Radicals.”
Alinsky instructs his followers to “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Likewise, the MEA manual instructs teachers to “Pick a target—personalize—and polarize the opposition [pg. 17].” And those are just the verbatim quotes; the entire manual is a handbook for creating, managing, and profiting from crises.
It's for the children, you know.

Obama Was Ardent Communist
Barack Obamas isn't really a communist, he's a Communist.
But is it really fair to suggest he may be a Marxist? Or was there evidence for it all along?I've taken some heat now and then for suggesting that Obama's relationships with the New Party and many Chicago area communists and socialists indicated he was a communist. I was told, no he just wanted to get "progressive" votes. He wasn't really a communist, he was just looking for support from communists.
Well, consider the words of John Drew, a man whom writer Paul Kengor calls “Obama’s Missing Link.” A contemporary of Obama’s at Occidental College three decades ago, Drew says that he himself was a Marxist at the time — and part of Obama’s inner circle. And what does he reveal?
Obama was an “ardent” “Marxist-Leninist” who “was in 100 percent, total agreement with [his] Marxist professors,” said Drew.
In fact, Drew states that while he was a more nuanced Marxist who tried to convince Obama that old-style communist revolution was unrealistic in the West, the future President would have none of it and considered Drew a “reactionary.”
Well, I guess I was......right on the money.
To his credit hasn't suggested that the Federal government start seizing private property.....yet.

Officials with the revamped ACORN office in New York -- operating as New York Communities for Change -- have fired staff, shredded reams of documents and told workers to blame disgruntled ex-employees for leaking information in an effort to explain away a FoxNews.com report last week on the group’s involvement in Occupy Wall Street protests, according to sources.Its almost as if there were some community organizer behind this?
NYCC also is installing surveillance cameras and recording devices at its Brooklyn offices, removing or packing away supplies bearing the name ACORN and handing out photos of Fox News staff with a stern warning not to talk to the media, the sources said.

Communism's African-American Soviet Republic
Via American Thinker
Organized Communism has long targeted black Americans, an ongoing effort which has survived the fall of the USSR. Kudos to Peter Wilson, who here at American Thinker highlighted the manifesto of the Revolutionary Communist Party, who are in their glory with the occupation of Wall Street by their Marxist brethren and the usual assortment of easily manipulated liberal/progressive dupes -- the dependable, university-trained foot soldiers who fill the streets.Be sure and read it all
Readers of Wilson's post surely were shocked by what they read. Are there really people who believe these things? You bet there are. I deal with it constantly -- and it's nothing new at all.
Perhaps the most stunning element of the Revolutionary Communist Party's manifesto is the call for black Americans to unite into a separate, autonomous republic in the American South. Wilson cited the Revolutionary Communist Party's constitution, which called upon African-Americans to forge an autonomous region comprising "the southern part of the former imperialist United States of America." That decision would be made by a special vote in which only African-Americans would be eligible to participate.
Insane? Yes. The concept is fortunately insane to African-Americans as well as all Americans. But I'm here to tell you it isn't anything new.[ More..]

Teaching Neo-Commie Subversion in
the US Oceania
While claiming the American flag represents racism and discussing today’s Progressive Movement’s efforts to defeat America both at home and abroad, including on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan to help their international “comrades,” Communist Tony Pecinovsky pulls the mask off today’s Progressive Movement in two new exclusive Big Government videos of a University of Missouri course offering, already much in the news.
While discussing “the idea that the American flag is racist,” in the video below, Pecinovsky mentions a 2005 international youth festival in Venezuela sponsored by the World Federation of Democratic Youth(WFDY).
Pecinovsky brags that the WFDY is officially recognized by the United Nations. He also defines Cuba, Venezuela, and others as genuinely ”progressive,” the very same code word today’s entire American Left uses for itself. That would include the Obama administration and today’s Democrat Party, which it has finally managed to take over. In deed, in the second video, Pecinovsky touts their linkage to such so-called mainstream efforts, including trade unions.

AP Exclusive: FBI thought Demjanjuk evidence faked
Someone needs to demand answers as to why the FBI kept this secret for 25 years
BERLIN (AP) — An FBI report kept secret for 25 years said the Soviet Union "quite likely fabricated" evidence central to the prosecution of John Demjanjuk — a revelation that could help the defense as closing arguments resume Wednesday in the retired Ohio auto worker's Nazi war crimes trial in Germany.Free this man...end the nonsense.
The newly declassified FBI field office report, obtained by The Associated Press, casts doubt on the authenticity of a Nazi ID card that is the key piece of evidence in allegations that Demjanjuk served as a guard at the Sobibor death camp in occupied Poland.
Throughout three decades of U.S. hearings, an extradition, a death sentence followed by acquittal in Israel, a deportation and now a trial in Munich, the arguments have relied heavily on the photo ID from an SS training camp that indicates Demjanjuk was sent to Sobibor.
Claims that the card and other evidence against Demjanjuk are Soviet forgeries have repeatedly been made by Demjanjuk's defense attorneys. However, the FBI report provides the first known confirmation that American investigators had similar doubts.
"Justice is ill-served in the prosecution of an American citizen on evidence which is not only normally inadmissible in a court of law, but based on evidence and allegations quite likely fabricated by the KGB," the FBI's Cleveland field office said in the 1985 report, four years after the Soviets had shown U.S. investigators the card.
It was the height of the Cold War at the time, and the ID card from the Nazi's Trawniki training camp had not been as closely examined by Western experts as it has been today. Since then it has been scrutinized and validated by courts in the U.S., Israel and Germany — though experts at the current trial left room for doubt, with one conceding that a counterfeiter with the right materials could have forged the card and other documents.
The FBI agents argued that the Soviets had an interest in faking the documents as part of a campaign to smear anti-communist emigres. Those conclusions contradict the findings of another branch of the Department of Justice, the Office of Special Investigations, or OSI, which was in charge of the overall Demjanjuk probe.

The Neo-Commie Plan to Wreck the Train
Did I mention there is a Neo-Commie in the White House?
What we’re witnessing is an organized attempt at initiating a soft coup in the United States by way of a socialist cabal. Michael Medved might not like to hear this; Bill O’Reilly and Bernie Goldberg likely won’t, either — concerned, as they both are, about the “rightwing” “bash Obama” industry (which isn’t helping “the folks”); Jeb Bush surely doesn’t, if such a revelation means that his standing on stage with Obama in the swing state of FL to burnish his “pragmatic centrist” bona fides then looks like either betrayal of conservative principles, or a real lack of discernment and judgment; and of course, the establishment GOP, who has built its entire political strategy on the idea that Washington is and always will be business as usual (and it is — for them) probably want to skip this as well.Read the rest..
But those of us who met the election of Barack Obama with cries of opposition knew what was coming — all one had to do was bother to look — and we reluctantly pushed the GOP back to power in November to fight the attempt by the left to finish its takeover of our country.

Much easier just to call em all Islams Useful Idiots.

Easing Cuban Travel Restrictions, Team Obama Slaps Cuba's Political Prisoners In the Face
It was a strange way to kick off the Martin Luther King weekend. But last Friday night, President Obama slapped hundreds of Cuba’s political prisoners’ right in the face.Gawd
That’s when the administration announced it will make it easier for Americans who support Castro’s government to send money there and visit the island for propaganda purposes. Travel restrictions will be lifted or relaxed, as will remittances and charter flights.
It’s a deplorable change -- and totally unnecessary. After all, the Castro brothers’ thugs do a good job making their victims miserable without help from the Oval Office.
Cuba’s prison guards keep their prey in dank underground cells, the easier to dump urine and excrement on them when the whim strikes them, or for rats to scurry in and bite the prisoners while they sleep—which they have to do standing up. (Their cells are not big enough to lie down in.) If you’re uncomfortable reading about these conditions, imagine what it’s like for the prisoners who endure them.
These men and women—behind bars for years for such infractions as exercising their freedom of speech, assembly, religion or movement—are the few on that island Gulag who still refuse to give in to the communist regime. Cuba’s other millions have learned the art of outwardly going along, lest they, too, get whisked away to one of the prison compounds that dot the island. Who can blame them? How many of us would not just surrender and practice what Orwell called “doublethink”?[More]
