West Coast Port Shutdown 12 12 11! w Boots Rile...
Why We Are Shutting Down The Port
The nationally coordinated, brutal police attacks on the Occupy Movement were supported by the 1%, and now we will strike back with our own coordinated attack on the 1% - a West Coast Port blockade and shutdown on December 12th in order to economically disrupt "wall street on the waterfront."
When we say "Wall street on the waterfront" we point particularly to EGT and Goldman Sachs. The West Coast Ports will be blockaded on December 12th in solidairty with longshoremen and port truckers struggles against EGT and Goldman Sachs.
EGT is an multinational grain exporter consortium. Bunge Ltd is the largest partner in ETG who reported 2.5 billion dollars in profit last year alone and has direct ties to Wall Street and has caused economic despair in countries such as Argentina, Brazil, and now the United States. EGT has been rupturing ILWU jurisdiction in Longview, Washington and bringing in scab labor.
We will blockade all the ports on the West Coast in solidarity with the Longshoremen in Longview in their struggle against EGT. We are also blockading the ports in solidarity with the struggle of port truckers against Goldman Sachs. The blockade is also intended to disrupt the profits of the 1% by showing solidarity with those who are under direct attack -- exerting the collective muscle of the west coast occupies.
Goldman Sachs owns a large part of the SSA port terminals and is guilty of facilitating the exploitation of non-union and short-run, port truck drivers who have struggled for dignified and humane conditions in the workplace for several years now. These independent truck drivers are majority immigrant workers who are pitted against each other, and receive low wages and unreliable hours while Goldman Sachs, the shipping companies and their underlings reap record profits.
EGT and Goldman Sachs are the 1%. The Occupy movement is committed to shutting down the one percent and is using its collective political power in order to confront the 1% with mass mobilizations that shut down sites of profit.
The giant retail shipping, trucking and global logistics corporations like Wal-Mart, Maersk and Goldman Sachs' own SSA Marine cooked up a scheme to stick it to America's port truck drivers long before Wall Street's greed uprooted Main Street's middle class. As Salon.com recently exposed, lax oversight and little regulation has created a shadowy industry that denies drivers their legal right to form a union.
U.S. ports have thus become economic engines for the elite; the 1% these trade hubs serve are free to rip the shirts off the backs of the 99% who turn their profits.
As part of the planned demonstrations, we are committed to exposing these systematic injustices. We pledge both our solidarity and ongoing support to the truck drivers who are uniting to win dignity, respect, and control over their work.

2 Opposing Views On Illegal Immigrants Gingrich...
Newt Gingrich and Michele Bachmann express opposing viewpoints on what should happen to illegal immigrants. Gingrich states that he wants illegal immigrants who have been in the US for a long time to be able to stay in the US. He would empower local neighborhood boards to decide who can stay. Gingrich responds to criticism that his plan would undermine the rule of law and encourage more illegal immigration. In contrast, Bachmann would have them all deported. Out of all the candidates in the race, these two have had the most candid opinions on this topic.

Michele Bachmann Wants To Close US Embassy In I...
Oh, that brain trust that is Michele Bachmann has struck again. Not content in staking her intelligence solely on the "scientific fact" of creationism, Professor Bachmann has shown her expertise in foreign policy and 20th century history with yet another gaffe:
Michele Bachmann told supporters in Iowa on Wednesday of her lofty plans for American diplomacy, claiming that a Bachmann presidency would mean no U.S. embassy in Iran.
Considering the recent hostility in the Iranian capital of Tehran against the British embassy, the comment might not seem particularly out of place -- if not for the fact that the U.S. hasn't actually had a functioning embassy in Iran since 1980.
Yeah, there was this little thing, maybe you've heard of it....the storming of the US Embassy and taking hostages? Gave birth to Nightline and ultimately, the 24 hour/day cable stations? Guaranteed that Jimmy Carter would be a one term president and ushered in the Age of Reagan? It was kind of a big deal in 1980. Bachmann was 24 and a law student in 1980, you'd think she might remember a bit of it, but no, that would be too factually-based for an alumnus of Oral Roberts University Law School. Officially, her campaign staff claimed that she is aware (*cough* riiiigggghhhhtt *cough*) and was simply answering the question as a hypothetical and was taken out of context.
There's no question that the current events in Tehran surrounding the UK embassy have some notable and concerning parallels to the events in 1979/80. But that notwithstanding, Bachmann's failure to even retain basic, fundamental historical moments that affect our current foreign policy should (in a sane, rational country) eliminate her entirely as a credible candidate for the presidency (among the plethora of other gaffes and boners that have provided such fodder to stand up comedians). Ironically, it was announced yesterday that she was one of seven candidates who qualified with enough national support (along with Cain, Gingrich, Paul, Perry, Romney and Santorum. Huntsman and Roemer--the two most sane candidates--failed to qualify) for the next Republican primary debate on December 10.
