    NEW ORLEANS, La. – The Revolutionary Communist Party USA has announced a "Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America," and members say they are planning for a "revolution" against capitalism, with violence if necessary. The "present capitalist-imperialist system" should be replaced with a "radically new economic system," they say. Carl Dix, a founding member and spokesman, believes that the federal government bailouts, under both George W. Bush and Barack Obama, are just one instance where they propped up what he calls the "capitalist class." His party is "building a revolution" and under the proposed constitution all "natural resources...

    Looking ahead after Ferguson. There are several outcomes to this situation in Ferguson. One: The officer will not be tried Two: There will be a trial with two possible outcomes: a) Wilson is acquitted b) He is found guilty The questions: What will be the reaction of various segments around the country? Will it be a repeat of LA 1992? Do you know your community and the demographics? Anticipated reaction from various communities? What preparation steps, if any, are you taking for these outcomes?
  • How Rodney King spawned Christopher Dorner

    The Los Angeles Police Department ceased to be an active force for justice on March 4, 1991, when George Holliday turned over his amateur video of Rodney King’s arrest to the Los Angeles TV station KTLA. With tape in hand, the media began what the late Christopher Dorner might call a surge of “unconventional and asymmetrical warfare” against the LAPD and police departments everywhere. As in the Trayvon Martin case, the media edited and presented the tape to reinforce its favorite template: evil white racists oppress innocent minority. I say “asymmetrical” because in the King case, unlike the Martin case,...

    By now, we’ve heard the argument about semi-automatic "assault" rifles: nobody needs one. we’ve heard the only reason why someone would obtain this kind of weapon is so they can kill people, which is far from the truth. We’ve also heard the argument from both the Left and the Right that a pistol is how someone protects their home. "I really don’t know why people need assault weapons. I’m not a hunter but I understand people who want to hunt," Republican Rep. Peter King said on Morning Joe earlier this week. "I understand people who live in rough neighborhoods...

    Rodney King, the man whose videotaped beating by police led to the 1992 Los Angeles riots, was found dead at the bottom of his pool, police said. Mr. King's fiancée found him at the bottom of the pool on Sunday morning at his home in Rialito, Calif. He was 47. "The preliminary investigation indicates that this is a drowning and there are no signs of foul play," said Rialto Police Sgt. Paul Stella. In 1991, a video of police beating Mr. King after a freeway chase in Los Angeles rocketed across the world, stoking national tensions over race and police...

    No one who was there or watched it on TV will ever forget the rioting in Los Angeles that began 20 years ago this Sunday. The mostly-black community of South L.A. erupted after a jury acquitted four white police officers in the videotaped beating of Rodney King, a black motorist stopped for speeding. Six days of violence killed 55 people, injured thousands, and shocked the nation. CBS News correspondent John Blackstone covered the riots in 1992 and returned to the neighborhood this week. When Los Angeles was seized by chaos and violence 20 years ago, the city's deep divisions were...

    Its no coincidence that CNN Cable is featuring a sort of 'Remember Rodney King Week,' especially since the Trayvon Martin case has eerily taken on the same format as those riotous days starting on April 29, 1992 that left over 60 people dead, and over 2000 injured, and causing over 1 billion dollars in damage. This was the reaction of King sympathizers who were reacting almost as badly as those who rioted in Memphis, Tennessee in April of 1968 when another King was assassinated - Martin Luther King. I was training with the Marine Corps at the Naval Air Station...

    Disgraced former Obama “green jobs czar” Van Jones made an appearance in Hawaii last night in which he ripped on the “American fantasy” and called for socialistic approaches to wealth redistribution, while castigating Obama opponents as America-haters. In his keynote address, he stated that the American dream was under threat: Not the American dream they talk about on TV. There are two American dreams. One of them I call the ‘American fantasy.’ You know that one? Everyone is going to be rich. Everybody.

Jones has spoken at Occupy encampments and met with those working on the next steps. He thinks that the movement can work on multiple fronts. Protests and demonstrations are important, Jones says, but so too are elections. "There's no reason to do an either or here. This can be one of the biggest movements...

    I found the press release Obama issued to get Project Vote rolling, in the ACORN archives at the Wisconsin Historical Society. (Obama worked closely with ACORN on this campaign, his later denials notwithstanding.) The release quotes Obama explaining the need for Project Vote by pointing to the rioting in Los Angeles. Said Obama in 1992: “The Los Angeles riots reflect a deep distrust and disaffection with the existing power pattern in our society.” That’s Alinsky-speak for “We’ve got to use the power of the angry underclass to put capitalism in check.” Naturally, we’ll continue to disagree about whether Obama’s...

    The Hill: Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said that it's not enough for African-Americans to levy allegations of racism against the right-leaning protesters, and that the media must look into their views. "I want those people talked to; I want them interviewed," Waters told the liberal Bill Press Radio show in a podcast. "I want journalists to be all over those rallies and the marches with the birthers and the teabaggers."

Just before he answered there were shouts from the audience of "He's a communist!" McCarthy answered the question by saying he did not believe Obama had the right to appoint these "Czars" AND give them powers that encroach on the "Checks and Balances" the Constitution requires. . . . .

"Not only are we going to do everything we can to organize and put pressure on the senators — some of whom are Neanderthals — we're going to say to the president, 'We want you to use every weapon in your basket in order to get those senators to do what they should be doing,'" Rep.

King, the 42-year-old man who gained national fame when his 1991 beating by Los Angeles police was caught on videotape, called Rialto police at 11:39 p.m. to report the shooting, said Sgt. Don Lewis. He had been struck in the face and arm with a shotgun, Lewis said. King reported that the shooting occurred...

    The Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear an international copyright fight over the alleged misuse of videotaped images of truck driver Reginald Denny being pulled to the pavement and beaten during the 1992 Los Angeles riots. The pictures showed several black men pulling the white driver from the cab of his truck, kicking and beating him, then smashing his skull with bricks and a fire extinguisher. The Denny beating came at the start of riots that erupted when white police officers were acquitted in the earlier beating of black motorist Rodney King. A Los Angeles couple filmed the scene...

    The looting in Iraq that the U.S.-led war spawned has a familiar look. It appears an awful lot like Los Angeles and other major American cities after the first verdicts in the police beating of Rodney King 11 years ago this month. In Iraq, people have broken into warehouses, government buildings, shops and homes to take everything they could carry. That included TVs, computers, tools, furniture, toilets, air conditioners, plants, refrigerators, light bulbs, ceiling fans, food and money. Priceless antiquities in museums and books in libraries in the birthplace of civilization have been stolen. The losses are among the high,...

Columnists Nicholas Kristof and Thomas Friedman, and the Times' editorial writers, insisted that virtually immediately after victory, America would have to turn over control to the democratic will of the Iraqi people, and get out of the country. Our rivals and enemies (take your pick) in France, Germany, and Russia, have informed us that the U.S. enjoys neither...

    I admit my back was to the television when I heard it. So I suppose it is possible it was really Maxine Waters, the ultra-leftist Congressperson from Los Angeles, doing her best impersonation of George W. But the Texas drawl was so distinctive it just wasn’t possible. "Civil Unrest." It was him and that’s what he said. Civil unrest. It’s the code word used by the likes of Maxine Waters to attempt to justify the Los Angeles riots of 1992 following the acquittal of the police officers in the Rodney King arrest…er, beating. They weren't riots - it was unrest...
