The Low Carb Diabetic Recipe blog A May Day alert for the Occupy movement | Naomi Wolf So, Occupy got it together for May Day – at least, in New York City. You would never know it, though, from mainstream news: those reports were full of what I call the "erectile dysfunction" narrative, the default narrative in American new coverage of mass protest. "Why Occupy May Day Fizzled", as CNN had it: flaccid efforts, always in "drenching rain", that may be well-intentioned but have no staying power. But if you click onto the new site – or if you actually went to the rally held in the late afternoon in Union Square – it was a very different story: thousands of euphoric protesters, a massive sound stage, edgy hip-hop artists who had created Occupy anthems that were euphorically received by the crowd, and representation by dozens of community groups and unions in Manhattan. It seems Occupy has spent the winter changing its strategy – and building coalitions with existing community groups on the ground. The media outreach was better, though far from perfect. - Conspiracy Theories, UFOs, Paranormal, Political Madness, and other "Alternative Topics" Bilderberg conspiracies have become a handicap for the Liberty Movement | Jack Hunter In 2009, the so-called Birther movement became an embarrassing distraction for the conservative movement. Many conservatives spoke out against the Birthers, who believe President Barack Obama was actually born in Kenya, forged his birth certificate, and is therefore ineligible to be president. I surely did. Still, many insisted on subscribing to it, though luckily their numbers seem fewer today than ever. For conservatives, Obama is bad. Most conservatives have come to see the Birthers as a political handicap, and the same is now true of the vocal minority obsessed with the Bilderberg Group, particularly those within the self-described Liberty Movement to which I belong. The Bilderberg Group is an invite-only organization whose membership features some of the world's most powerful political players and world leaders. Of course, secret societies are nothing new in American politics. Donating millions to the cause of liberty is good. The Left is hell-bent on redistributing wealth.

Guantánamo Bay contractor on shortlist to run UK police services | UK news A US Pentagon contractor that was involved in building Guantánamo Bay is on a shortlist of private consortiums bidding for a £1.5bn contract to run key policing services in the West Midlands and Surrey. The Texas-based Kellogg Brown & Root, which was sold off by the controversial Halliburton corporation in 2007, is part of a consortium which has made it to the final shortlist for a contract that will see large-scale involvement of the private sector in British policing for the first time. When KBR was still part of Halliburton it won a large share of Pentagon contracts to build and manage US military bases in Iraq after the 2003 invasion. Its former chief executive, Dick Cheney, was US vice-president. The Guardian has learned that 15 groups of companies and individual firms have made it on to the most recent shortlist. More than 200 firms initially expressed an interest at a "bidders' conference" held in March. "The police are fundamental to the society we live in.

The shocking truth about the crackdown on Occupy | Naomi Wolf US citizens of all political persuasions are still reeling from images of unparallelled police brutality in a coordinated crackdown against peaceful OWS protesters in cities across the nation this past week. An elderly woman was pepper-sprayed in the face; the scene of unresisting, supine students at UC Davis being pepper-sprayed by phalanxes of riot police went viral online; images proliferated of young women – targeted seemingly for their gender – screaming, dragged by the hair by police in riot gear; and the pictures of a young man, stunned and bleeding profusely from the head, emerged in the record of the middle-of-the-night clearing of Zuccotti Park. But just when Americans thought we had the picture – was this crazy police and mayoral overkill, on a municipal level, in many different cities? – the picture darkened. To Europeans, the enormity of this breach may not be obvious at first. Why this massive mobilisation against these not-yet-fully-articulated, unarmed, inchoate people?
