And an update on our coverage of the Dakota Access pipeline and the resistance to it: Democracy Now! will be heading back to North Dakota to continue our coverage of the standoff at Standing Rock. As has been reported here and elsewhere, as a result of Democracy Now!’s reporting over Labor Day weekend last month, Amy Goodman was charged by the state of North Dakota with criminal trespass. A warrant was issued for her arrest on September 8—five days after we released video of the Dakota Access pipeline company’s security guards physically assaulting nonviolent, mostly Native American land protectors, pepper-spraying them and unleashing attack dogs, one of which was shown with blood dripping from its nose and mouth.

Protester: “These people are just threatening all of us with these dogs. And she, that woman over there, she was charging, and it bit somebody right in the face.”

Amy Goodman: “The dog has blood in its nose and its mouth.”

Protester: “And she’s still standing here threatening us.”

Amy Goodman: “Why are you letting their—her dog go after the protesters? It’s covered in blood!”

Goodman will be turning herself in to authorities at the Morton County jail in North Dakota on Monday morning at 8 a.m. North Dakota time and intends to vigorously fight this charge as she sees it as a direct attack on the First Amendment, freedom of the press? and the public’s right to know.

However some of your Friends and Civic Association Members may have a Deal in place to get a ‘DISCOUNT’ or receive actual CA$H for those National Grid signs up for CONVERSION with their public support & encouragement! Of course, none of these folks with VESTED INTERESTS will admit to the subterfuge – but I am positive about one of the Members of the BLCA (Belmont Lake Civic Association), who gives extremely avid Support of National Grid Conversion to fellow members, has no apparent employment ties to National Grid, and refuses to discuss the Conversion NEGATIVES. – Tabacco Continue reading

Philosopher, Thinker, Activist, Essayist, Poet & Prophet, WENDELL BERRY Converses With Bill Moyers. Even When He Speaks In Prose, It Seems Poetic And Rich In Both Texture & Meaning. Wendell Berry Is A National Treasure, Lost Almost Before He Has Been Found.

WENDELL BERRY: I don’t know. There are two or three things that we haven’t been able to confront or even acknowledge politically. One is that the aim of the Industrial Revolution from year one has been to replace people with technology. So it’s a little contemptible to hear these people express in surprise at this late date that we have an unemployment problem. I don’t know that there’s any politician of visibility, who could say that. So it’s important for people like me to say it, who have no power. Continue reading
