This video features Greg Palast speaking on a panel of alternative media dignataries about what we can do to reach a wider audience and be more effective as journalists working outside of the mainstream distribution outlets. The short answer: "don't be so fucking dull". This was filmed at The Boston Social Forum, a counter convention of sorts that took place in the days leading up to the Democratic National Convention in 2004.
The video was meant as a prequel to my convention coverage and was filmed and upload the day before the convention started. I met a great journalist this day and together we scouted the 1st ever instance of a designated caged area called a Protest Pen, a Freedom Cage, etc etc. No, it wasn't Greg Palast.
An in depth look at the events that unfolded in Ferguson, Missouri following the police murder of Michael Brown, a black teenager. Also features an exclusive interview with former Black Panther, Ashanti Alston, about the state of black “America”, abolishing penile power and taking care of your peeps in the muthafuckin resistance.
More analysis on the Ferguson insurrection here.
In this video, a man commits suicide by cop in Riverview, Mo about 15 minutes away from Ferguson, Mo.
The man supposedly was mentally unstable and had just stolen 2 cans or bottles of soda from a store.
In the video, the man doesn't have a gun AND begs police to kill him. POLICE SAY THE MAN PULLES A KNIFE OUT OF HIS RIGHT HOODIE POCKET AND KEPT WALKING TOWARDS THEM WHEN THEY OPENED FIRE.
The video is hard to tell if he did have a knife or not.
He was shot 9 times

On the night of the eviction. I had left a spokes council to head back to Global Revolution studios. The streets looked wet, and I called a good friend of mine form back home. After 3 months of Occupy Wall Street, most of my personal relationships were frayed, and I had been trying to mend my relationships old friends not in NYC. As I walked I saw lines of NYPD vans stream past me towards the park. It wasn’t unusual, until I noticed that all the vans were full. Each van had cops pressed shoulder to shoulder in them.
I told my friend I had to go and called back to the park to advise members of the media team what I had seen. They told me everything seemed fine back at the park, but I decided not to go to the studio and jumped a train to Liberty…just in case. When I arrived at the park it was cool. The air brisk, and the usual wanderings of people milling, people had taken to coming into the park later and later, some not even staying at all as the temperatures dropped. I checked in with the media team I was working with and they reported nothing unusual. I relaxed. Every night was paranoia. Every night was our last night.
With some of the only video from behind police lines, subMedia.tv witnessed the brutal raid by the Royal Colonial Mounted Police on the Mi’kmaq blockade of fracking equipment. But the fierce response of the community in defense of the warriors was also captured on camera. We bring you the real story about what really went down on Highway 134, the story that the corporate media doesn’t want you to see.
Holy shit what a day! The day began with a rude awakening courtesy of the RCMP. Yep the pigs raided a 2 week old blockade of some fracking equipment owned by SWN. If you need some background watch my report about the blockade before the raid or read my twitter feed for my updates from today. A video report should be up early next week, but in the meantime, here’s a photo essay. Big ups to all the brave warriors defending the land!
Red Ribbon Grand Jury ~ Chadron, NE ~ June 24th 2008
Testimony regarding specific crimes and specific injustices which exemplify the atmosphere of fascism in Dawes county Nebraska.
While covering the plight of the Lakota in Chadron the NOmadjik Media bus was sabatoged with deep red clay in the fuel lines. We were immobilized and all mechanics who responded to fix it changed their minds a day after agreeing to do the job. During this period a little research showed that a month earlier a journalist who had been studying racism in Chadron and had dissappeared several years before had just been unearthed in a local park... not all that well hidden in a relatively populated area. The public was to believe the body had been there for several years without being detected in the numerous man hunts that had combed the area after he went missing. We were lucky enough to be a AAA member with towing privledges; so after a week or more of being harassed by local police & kindly not helped by local businesses, we were able to be towed 100 miles to the safety of a real international truck shop. At this point we had not yet published anything about the issues in Chadron. Along the way our tow truck driver confided to us that he used to work as a guard at the local prison (where the current police chief had been warden). We were a little concerned about that since he was taking us "somewhere".

The majority of humans on Earth have their minds focused on things that directly concern them. They think about bills, what to have for dinner, what TV shows to watch, how much gas is in the car, visiting friends or family, & often times politics that pertain to their lives in some form or another. But there’s something that everyone should be concerned with, especially given the time frame left for it’s prophetic beginnings (per Ray Kurzweil) coming in 2045.
I’m talking about what’s known as Transhumanism. In a nutshell, Transhumanism is simply the merging of humans with technology into a sort of techno-organic-symbiosis. Which, at first sounds rather innocent, if not just plain cool. The imagination can run wild with ideas of having the internet in your eyeballs, controlled by your thoughts. A semi-telepathic network via having telephone calls operated by thought & having the receiver directly inside your ears. Also, great medical breakthroughs can be imagined for the paraplegic. Technology in that regard has already been developed & is currently in the improvement phase for better practicality.
Before we get into what’s so concerning to me, lets look at some of the technology they’re looking at producing.
In a recent story: http://www.cnbc.com/id/100952247 CNBC explains something that should be pretty obvious, yet major news corporations are REFUSING to face reality to a point that they will let themselves die before facing the music.
The article takes a few stabs at why people don't read newspapers anymore & why people just skim their news sites instead of reading them in depth. It touches on the fact that people trust their peers more than news outlets these days. All the while not admitting what the real problem is. The PROBLEM: IGNORING REAL PROBLEMS
Sure, they'll talk about disasters & stuff like that. So what do I mean by "REAL" problems? Well, unless you've been sleeping under a rock (or actually believing the main-stream-media [MSM] up to this point), then you also know that there is a HUGE problem with Government. Not just the US Government, but Government in general. If you've been watching the MSM this whole time, you've been listening/watching MAJORLY watered down news. Mostly to make it all seem like Government is still necessary & is, for the most part, good. If you haven't been sleeping under a rock, then you might have come to the conclusions that a LOT of people in the world are coming to:
***SPOILER ALERT*** Game of Thrones plot-line revealed in the video. You have been warned.
What’s ironic about this post, is that I just started watching “Game of Thrones.” As I usually do when dealing with heartbreak, instead of escaping into substance abuse, I escape into the world of TV for a day or two and binge on two or three seasons of a tv show. Yep, probably not the healthiest, but it helps me cope. Yet, I’m glad I’m not the TV addict I was in my teens. So much time wasted watching stupid shit, fills me with regret.
Last year I took a break from activism, to work on my website, quit smoking, and get in some sort of shape. In the evening I would curl up with my laptop and watch hours of TV shows to relax. Then I caught myself “holy fuckin shit, it is happening again”
All this to say, that the promise of the personal computer / mobile phone + the internet, as tools of two way, global communications, free information, blah-fuckin-blah, have become the new passive one way mass hypnotizer that TV once was, sedating billions with non-reality, while the fuckers up top laugh all the way to the bank. “Feel of poppies” reminds us of this.

In a statement on Project Knight Sec's Website Ky Anonymous has unmasked and addresses the world:
Greetings Citizens of the World, I am Deric Lostutter, and this is my story.
Approximately Mid-April 2012 a search warrant was carried out on my address in Winchester, Kentucky for alleged communications with one “Noah Mchugh” aka @justbatcat regarding the hacking of http://www.rollredroll.com and my alleged involvement in said hacking. Upon returning from a brief turkey hunt behind my farm I had just sat down and opened up my computer to work when my pitbull, named Thor, jumps up on the door as is common for him to do when someone new is at my house. I had been expecting a T-Shirt in the mail from ShieldTactical.com and what appeared to be a Fed-Ex truck was parked in my driveway. As I open the door to great the driver approximately 12 F.B.I. Swat Team agents jumped out of the truck screaming for me to “Get The Fuck Down” with m-16 assault rifles and full riot gear armed safety off, pointed directly at my head. I was handcuffed and detained outside while they cleared my house. My brother soon emerged later with his new girlfriend, both bewildered that the F.B.I. was at my house seeing as I have no prior criminal history, both of them in handcuffs as well. The Swat team left my belongings in the floor, my dogs shocked, my family nervous, my garage door battered open with a ram though I stated I had a key, and the RV camper window broken for entry though I stated to pull hard on the door.
by Phil Polizatto, WWH/CJE - The Water Department came by the other day to install a small metering device under the lip of my toilet bowl. When I asked the reason, he said it would provide useful data concerning the amount of water I use, but I was suspicious. He tried to allay my concern by saying it would be useful not only to the Water Department, but to me as well. I might conserve more water after learning how much I really use and thereby have the incentive to flush less. He also warned me that if I tampered with it, it would set off an alarm at the Department’s headquarters, and they would immediately come out to see what was wrong. So not to worry. It was for my own good.
