Occupy Oakland – Official Site

We Don’t Have the Videos You’re Looking For. On February 18th, hundreds of Oaklanders showed up at the City Council meeting to testify against the Domain Awareness Center in other words, against spying. Despite being confronted by scads of police inside the Council Chambers, outside of the chamber, and all around City Hall, despite being spied upon literally- by OPD as seen in the picture taken that evening inside the Council Chambers, many got up and testified, including those in communities being targeted by Federal agents

‘Apartheid Week’ Hits Hebrew University – Inside Israel …

“Israeli Apartheid Week,” an annual event of Israel bashing, has occupied university campuses worldwide, but the attacks on Israel have sprung up from within as well. One particularly provocative photo display is spreading anti-Zionism in the halls of… Hebrew University.

Adi Golan, the head of the university’s Ta Lavi pro-Likud student group, toldArutz Shevathat Arab students were behind the defamatory exhibit, which is located in acentral hallway frequented daily by the university’s regents. The Arab studentsput up photos depicting the IDF negatively with inciteful texts, reports Golan. The texts define IDF soldiers as “hunters of freedom,” call Israel “Palestine,” and the IDF an “occupying army.”

One particularly colorful photo text describes the picture as being of a mother crying for her shahid (martyr) son who was killed by the “occupation army.” Sections of the Arab text declare that “Palestine will be liberated.”

“The university welcomes political debate and I am for that. I have no complaint against the university, rather against the board of regents which let the exhibit go up without checking the texts attached to the pictures,” said Golan. She was told by the Arab students behind the display that the board members asked merely to see the pictures.

Golan voiced surprise that Arab students, who study freely in the Israeli university and enjoy “affirmative action” in being accepted to the school and into work afterwards, dare to cry of “apartheid” and “racism.”

Ta Lavi submitted a complaint to the board of regents, which responded by saying that the issue is being looked into.

On Tuesday, members of the club stood in front of the exhibit “to present our side,” and showed pictures of soldiers from other lands roughly treating their own citizens. Among the pictures were Syrian and Egyptian soldiers, where the army has been responsible for numerous casualties among its citizens.

The club revealed its intentions to hold a display showing the IDF’s effortsto aid the civilian population inJudea and Samaria.

“We want to show the humanitarian and good side of the IDF,” said Golan. “Let them see soldiers helping children, elderly people and women, and doing their best to aid the population. Those pictures, the world hides.”

“Claims of apartheid are a lie”

Commentary: State needs to sober up on sober homes issue

By State Rep. Bill Hager Picture this: Middle-class parents save much of their adult lives to buy a home in a safe neighborhood in Florida, with a mortgage they can just barely afford. They move in with their children, pleased to have captured a bit of the American dream and, most important, the safety of a good neighborhood for their children.

The Left Wing Probably Wants To Start WW3 Over Racist …

The Left Wing Probably Wants To Start WW3 Over Racist Banana Pic

The left-wing is foaming at the mouth over the racist banana picture that a former Russian figure-skating star tweeted last year. Liberals are unhinged like the little rats they are. If their man could not take the heat, get out of the kitchen. This is politics.you stupid, Communist moonbats.

MeanwhileThe left wing MSM pretends that knock-out games are fictitious. Benghazi is a fabricated hoax that the right wing made up to impeach poor Obama because the NYTimes says so. IRS-gate is hype (according to the left) and Fast & furious has been debunked.

The banana picture is an OUTRAGE but 2,400 Dead civilians as Obamas drone campaign marks 5 years in the middle east is OK..

Stupid? Hypocritical? I believe so. If all of the aforementioned transpired under a white, Republican Prez, we would have a more honest media(Well, as honest as one can get being a liberal..)

Marta Farion: Education unites a new generation for a European future

Much has been written about Ukraines divisiveness, but it is time to see Ukraine in the present and stop repeating old perceptions. As Fareed Zakaria stated in his articleWhy Ukraine is in turmoil, Much has changed since 1654. The forces of democracy, globalization, trade, and technology give Ukraine much greater freedom of action.

The sudden refusal by President Viktor Yanukovych on Nov. 21 to sign a far-reaching association agreement with the European Union, and his subsequent turn towards Russia, was the spark that ignited the massive protests. All polls indicate that the overwhelming majority of the Ukrainian people want a European direction for the future.

Students and the young educated generation erupted in protest first. Yanukovych does not understand that this generation is different from previous ones. This generation is the product of an education that provided access to the worlds knowledge, and opportunities to study and travel abroad. This generation is integrated with the freedom and open communication offered by technology and social media, one that brings Ukraine into the world community.

This generation identifies with the West more than they do with Russia. This is critical to understand. Not only did the students react to the loss of political and economic opportunities when Yanukovych refused to sign the association agreement, but they also reject the claim that Russia is closer to them. They do not identify with Russia. They identify with an integrated world community.

The young people have hope and expectations for a better future. They reject corruption, abuse, selective justice, incompetence, and greed as a way of life. They want equal opportunities and transparency for their future.

The EuroMaidan dispelled a favorite myth from the past that keeps being promulgated by Russia and its appointees in Ukraine, promoted by Russias paid spin-masters, and accepted by foreign media and analysts, who neither know nor understand Ukraines history. The persistent spin that there is a fundamental divide in Ukraine has been used to portray the country as weak and fractured. This view is often simplistically portrayed by analysts who draw lines, circles, and squares on a map, dividing regions of Ukraine in an attempt to describe differences based on language, religion, and ethnicity that supposedly cannot be overcome.

The current protest united Ukrainians regardless of language, geographic location, or ethnicity. There are protesters from Kyiv, Odessa, Sevastopol, Donetsk, Kharkiv, Lviv, Ternopol, and from all around the country. This picture is a reflection of a long list of events that has united Ukrainians for a long time.

The organization Mothers, Sister and Daughters of Soldiers was founded in Ukraine against brutality in the military during the Soviet – Afghan war and united women regardless of language, ethnicity or region.

The reaction to the Chornobyl disaster in 1986 also knew no divides. In 1991, the vote for Ukraines independence was over 92 percent. Even the Communists wanted to get away from Moscow. The passage of Ukraines Constitution in 1996, before political corruption had fully seeped in, was a remarkable testament to the fact that parliamentarians from all regions of Ukraine, all parties, all ethnicities, and all languages could find common ground.

France Legalizes Gay Marriage Following Intense Threats, Protests and Angst

PARIS (TheBlaze/AP) — France legalized gay marriage on Tuesday after a wrenching national debate and protests that flooded the streets of Paris. Legions of officers and water cannon stood ready near France’s National Assembly ahead of the final vote, bracing for possible violence on an issue that galvanized the country’s faltering conservative movement.

The measure passed easily in the Socialist-majority Assembly, 331-225, just minutes after the president of the legislative body expelled a disruptive protester in pink, the color adopted by French opponents of gay marriage.

“Only those who love democracy are here,” Claude Bartelone, the Assembly president, said angrily.

In recent weeks, violent attacks against gay couples have spiked and some legislators have received threats – including Bartelone, who got a gunpowder-filled envelope on Monday.

One of the biggest protests against same-sex marriage drew together hundreds of thousands of people bused in from the French provinces — conservative activists, schoolchildren with their parents, retirees, priests and others. That demonstration ended in blasts of tear gas, as rabble-rousers, some in masks and hoods, led the charge against police, damaging cars along the Champs-Elysees avenue and making a break for the presidential palace.

Justice Minister Christiane Taubira told lawmakers that the first weddings could be as soon as June.

“We believe that the first weddings will be beautiful and that they’ll bring a breeze of joy, and that those who are opposed to them today will surely be confounded when they are overcome with the happiness of the newlyweds and the families,” she said.

When President Francois Hollande promised to legalize gay marriage, it was seen as relatively uncontroversial. But the issue has become a touchstone as his popularity has sunk to unprecedented lows, largely over France’s ailing economy.

WaC escorted

WaC escorted confronted Paul Volcker on Bilderberg attendance and the Federal Reserve!
Follow Luke @ www.twitter.com At a gala for the NY Economics Club, Luke Rudkowski questioned Paul Volcker on his Bilderberg attendance and the Federal Reserve. In a previous video, Volcker acknowledged being a member of Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission but stated that the Federal Reserve was “the most insidious” organization he's been a member of. This time Luke had the opportunity to have a longer conversation with Volcker since he was lost at the event and couldn't find where he was supposed to be, so we had the interview as we helped him navigate around the hotel. As it turns out, the place we were helping Volcker find ended up being the room that Ben Bernanke was in waiting to have his picture taken, which is where Luke confronted him. Although Volcker was most likely not too pleased to have been confronted with the questions Luke asked him, he at least talked to us and didn't immediately call security as Bernanke did.
