DemocracyNow.org – When Democracy Now! senior producer Mike Burke attempted to interview billionaire casino magnate and Republican donor Sheldon Adelson inside the Republican National Convention, a woman identified as Adelson’s daughter grabbed our video camera, tried to take it into a private suite and then threw the camera to the ground.

I HAVE A DREAM – Description written and dedicated by RK Hendrick
There are brilliant moments in human history and magical moments in our lives, when our perception of the world is crystal clear and “time” itself seems to stand still! When these events occur, we remember exactly where we were and what was transpiring around us!
On Wednesday, August 28, 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. created an electrifying and spectacular moment in human history when he delivered his internationally famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Considered to be the best speech of the 20th century, it echoed throughout the entire world and continues to reverberate through time and the soul of humanity today!

Last Thursday, one day before leaving the sin city, in our temporary suitcase-filled rental apartment, I gave an interview to Lew Rockwell on Classified Woman and much more. I say much more because despite all the chaos I was unusually relaxed and open during this interview. Part of it had to do with my interviewee; someone I respect-someone who understands, and if you listen to this show you’ll find another reason (why I chose Mr. Rockwell as one of the first recipients of advanced copies of my book).

In this episode, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the fact that we’re all cows eating candy during the global liquidity drought and yet Central Bank ‘farmers’ can’t see the ill-effects because the stock markets are at four year highs. In the second half of the show, Max Keiser talks to Dmitry Orlov about 2013: revolutionary travel advisories, economic and supply chain collapse and food stamp lines at Wal-Mart.

Battered and bruised by austerity, Athens has begged the EU for ‘breathing space’. Regardless of whether Greece is given more time, its tactic to fight debt will remain the same: agressive austerity, privatization and cuts. However, Andrew Gavin Marshall [previously] from the Centre of Research on Globalization thinks those reforms will do much more harm than good.

The UN-Arab League’s new peace envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, says he is not confident about the prospect of restoring peace in Syria. After giving his first major public comment on the conflict, it is not surprising to hear the veteran Algerian diplomat voicing his lack of confidence.
This is because he is either completely misinformed on the violence in Syria; or, more likely, because Brahimi is deliberately misinforming the rest of the world about the problem at hand.

A consumer advocate, lawyer and political activist, Ralph Nader first made headlines in 1965 with his book Unsafe at Any Speed, which led to congressional hearings and passage of a series of automobile safety laws. Nader went on to build a national network of citizen groups that have had a significant impact in such areas as tax reform, nuclear energy, healthcare and safety programs. Named by The Atlantic as one of the 100 most influential figures in American history, Nader ran for president
twice [actually four times], including in the controversial 2000 election. The best-selling author’s upcoming title is The Seventeen Solutions.

You don’t need to eat fish to set up a backyard aquaponics system! Ducks are a great alternative and produce a huge amount of nutrient for growing veggies (not to mention eggs, meat and snail & slug control!) and they’re generally good friends to have around. At the Farm of Fluff, Chris and James set up this “quaquaponics” system with a few bits and pieces we’d collected from the side of the road and so far it’s doing brilliantly! You need a strong pump and good filtration to cope with the large particles coming through, though! (We found a whole tomato blocking the drain one day, so check and clean regularly!)

Two landmark developments on August 16th give momentum to the growing interest of cities and counties in addressing the mortgage crisis using eminent domain:
(1) The Washington State Supreme Court held in Bain v. MERS, et al., that an electronic database called Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems (MERS) is not a “beneficiary” entitled to foreclose under a deed of trust; and
