Tea Party Politics: Flirting with Fascism

This morning a friend forwarded me a strange article from the CUNY (City University New York) Graduate Center's paper.
The piece is pretty startling in at once it's admission of the failures of 'mainstream' journalism as well as the role of the Federal Reserve in undermining the economy (to at least a partial extent), but the author completely gets wrong that the Tea Party movement was usurped, who the important figures are in the 9/11 Truth movement, and, well, everything to do w/ 9/11 truth for certain.

I can't tell whether or not it's deliberate misinformation or not, and I don't have any time right now, but thought I'd share it with you fine people here who might be better equipped to set him straight.

Another Piece of the Puzzle? 9/11 Insider trading suspect was the origin of Blackwater's 1st US Govt. contracts.

Anyone who has read Michael Ruppert's book, Crossing The Rubicon, or website will likely remember the name Buzzy Krongard in the context of insider trading. From FTW:

Why Portlanders are worried about being the nuclear 9-11.

The military is simulating a terrorist nuclear attack in Portland this week. Oregon corporate media won't report on it, the city of Portland hasn't been invited to participate, and friends of mine are leaving town. (the story has now changed - to volcano, and now, earthquake)

"Maybe the people who think there's a conspiracy out there are right."

Here's what has people in Portland concerned, in a nutshell:

Since September, 2001, some major "terrorist" events have been
occurring at the exact times that the drills for them were occurring.

(google: 9/11 Northern Vigilance, 9/11 Vigilant Guardian,
- there were at least two other drills ongoing at the time. These had
most active US fighters drawn North over Canada, and some drills
inserted false blips on radar screens while others were "live fly"
exercises that involved hijackings.

(google: 7/7 Visor Consulting) - This was a drill that had the exact
same targets as the actual bombings.
