Since 1982 a single landowner and sweatshop entrepreneur has benefited from US interventions in Honduras.While Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton ignored pleas from Congress to cut off support to Miguel Facusse', who was remembered as a "colorful character" by the LA Times when he passed away last year at the age of 90. Today, I provide background for a new report from International Affairs Review: "¡Basta Ya! The United States is Overdue for a New Policy Approach in Honduras" by Laura Blume

Take Back Santa Cruz will occasionally mobilize a court watch when there is a victim of a crime to support or when a transient arrested. They really like to go to court when it involves an unhoused individual. This happened in 2013 with Kenneth Maffei who was neither homeless or guilty but I digress. On May 17 they are mobilizing another court watch for the 5 minute arraignment of Landon Horseman who was arrested for assault .

(May 6, 2016) Today the National Lawyers Guild San Francisco Bay Area Chapter (NLGSF) released a simple but critical piece of public education on undercover law enforcement, informants and cooperating witnesses. It's a Trap! (see PDF) provides basic information that everyone should know about the tactics of law enforcement, but that may be particularly important for political activists and those who are, or who are perceived to be, Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim or South Asian.

text The recession will become a depression by Ted Rudow III, MA
The cycle of recession and rebound is what you would call a confidence game, perpetrated by the biggest con man and swindler of all. He has succeeded very well, and the economic world has a false foundation today, a paper one, which could go up in smoke if the right match were applied to it.
