A Thousand Barrels a Second: The Coming Oil Break Point and the Challenges Facing an Energy Dependent World (MCGRAW-HILL)
Discussion & Book Signing
University District Store
Originally written for investors, Tertzakian’s new book makes a convincing case for a move toward alternative energy sources. This is, in his estimation, “the dawn of a new energy age,” where the U.S. and China must struggle for oil—a resource that just may be nearly exhausted.
Friday, October 5 at 7 p.m. at Microsoft Auditorium, Seattle Public Central Library, 1000 Fourth Avenue
Co-presented with the WASHINGTON CENTER FOR THE BOOK AT THE SEATTLE PUBLIC LIBRARY. One of the season’s more anticipated—and important—non-fiction books is The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court (Doubleday), by New Yorker legal affairs correspondent and attorney Jeffrey Toobin. “It’s not laws or constitutional theory that rule the High Court, argues this absorbing group profile, but quirky men and women guided by political intuition. Toobin surveys the court from the Reagan administration onward, as the justices wrestled with abortion, affirmative action, the death penalty, gay rights and church-state separation … The author deftly distills the issues and enlivens the narrative of the Court’s internal wranglings with sharp thumbnail sketches … and editorials … His savvy account puts the supposedly cloistered Court right in the thick of American life.” – Publishers Weekly. “This is a remarkable, riveting book. So great are Toobin’s narrative skills that both the justices and their inner world are brought vividly to life.” – Doris Kearns Goodwin. Free admission is on a first-come, first-serve basis (no advance tickets). Special note: The Library will close at its regular 6 p.m. Friday closing time. The Fourth Avenue entrance will reopen at 6:30 p.m. The Seattle Public Central Library is located at 1000 Fourth Avenue (between Madison & Spring). Special $5 parking coupons (limited availability) for the Library parking garage will be available for those attending. For more information, please see www.spl.org or call (206) 386-4636.

Edward J. Larson
A Magnificent Catastrophe: The Tumultuous Election of 1800, America’s First Presidential Campaign (FREE PRESS)
Discussion & Book Signing
University District Store
The first two presidential elections in our history were relatively sedate affairs. It was the Jefferson/Adams race of 1800 that inaugurated our lively, partisan process of presidential electioneering. Witness the birth of the two-party system and the hard-charging, highbrows and low blows race for the American White House with Pulitzer Prize winner, Larson.

General Wesley Clark
A Time to Lead: For Duty, Honor and Country (PALGRAVE MACMILLAN)

John Bowe: Slavery—The Dark Side of the Global Economy

Location: Downstairs at Town Hall, enter on Seneca Street
In Nobodies: Modern American Slave Labor and the Dark Side of the New Global Economy, John Bowe travels from the agricultural lands of Florida to a welding plant in Tulsa to the factories and brothels of Saipan to compile a first-hand report on the working conditions that corporations in the global economy depend on but do their best to ignore. Bowe, a journalist who has contributed to The New Yorker, New York Times Magazine, National Public Radio’s “This American Life,” delivers a sobering look at the moral cost of cheap goods, to which our economy has grown accustomed. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with Elliott Bay Book Company.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the state can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie … The truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the state.” –Joseph Goebbels, minister of propaganda in Nazi Germany, 1933-1945
Since Sept. 11, 2001, the administration of George W. Bush has told and repeated a lie that is “big enough” to confirm Joseph Goebbels’ testimony. It is a mega-lie, and the American people have come to believe it. It is the “War on Terror.”
Raw Story – Jason Rhyne
An ultra-secret conservative group — so secret that members don’t even use the group’s name in communications — will feature Vice President Dick Cheney as a speaker at a meeting in Utah today.
“Cheney will address the fall meeting of the Council for National Policy, a group whose self-described mission is to promote ‘a free-enterprise system, a strong national defense and support for traditional Western values,” according to the Salt Lake City Tribune.
2 New Yorkers have released their footage from 9/11/01.
Some theories will be laid to rest. Others, well… watch it and leave some comments. What did you see/hear?
The original footage is hosted on the Belgium site GarageTV.be and posted on 9/11blogger so it is slow, we have put it up on Gogle Video (shown here).
Provisions allow search warrants issued without probable cause, she says
Portland attorney Brandon Mayfield, left, and public defender Steven Wax in Portland, Ore., react to the May 24, 2004, dismissal of the case against Mayfield who had been detained in connection with the Madrid train bombings investigation.
PORTLAND, Ore. – Two provisions of the USA Patriot Act are unconstitutional because they allow search warrants to be issued without a showing of probable cause, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.
September 25, 2007
The Navy, the worlds top of the food chain military organization is bowing to pressure from concerned citizens over their architecture on a military barracks in San Diego. They are going to overhaul the grounds and roof panels so the thing doesn’t look like a swastika any longer. The Navy claims that a set of buildings with a perfect resemblance of a swastika facing exactly due north were not laid out with an absolute preconceived foreknowledge. This is to assume the American public is as dense as they think we all are.
No endorsement should be implied, but Ron Paul discusses some of the issues addressed on our website. Apologies for the shaky camera, I forgot my tripod.
These people want a new truly INDEPENDENT and THOROUGH investigation because they believe there is a cover-up, of some degree or other. The inclusion of any name on this list does not seek to represent that any of these people claim to have reached any particular theories or judgements except as documented in referenced articles and/or interviews.
