More Imaginary Violence to Whites

The Language of Hate

Henderson Daily Dispatch

We've been following the events in North Carolina surrounding Tony Finch. A news story dated 30 July illustrates nicely the way blacks and other neo-communists use language as a weapon, as a means of control.

The article - linked above - details a planned 9 August meeting:

"The Henderson-Vance County Human Relations Commission and the Vance chapter of the NAACP have called a joint meeting to work on racial reconciliation, healing and justice in the commu­nity."

The sad truth, of course, is that the "reconciliation, healing and justice" sought by the neo-communists is a return to white submissiveness. Get out of line, point out the truth of black crime, and you need healing. They hate you.

In the language of the NAACP and the neo-communists, "racial harmony" means a compliant white population forced to endure cultural disintegration.

Democrats and other neo-communists always profess ignorance when normal whites protest blacks settling in historically white areas. We know why.

Another Step On The Road To War?

NewsMax is reporting that Northrop Grumman has started outfitting B-2 bombers with bunker-buster bombs. Such bombs would be a part of any airstrike on Iranian nuclear facilities.

Race of Cain continues what seems to be a theme of reconstituted bands releasing new CDs in 2007. Forgotten Woods have released a work very much in in with their previous efforts - a good thing. The production is sparse; you won't find multi-layered synth-infested material here. Chilling black metal. The bound booklet is worth the price with quality paper, photographs and lyrics. A very pleasant surprise.

Horna has, I think, now released 5,347 works. Ok, so it's not that many, but it's alot. Sotahuuto is a tribute to Bathory started before Quorthon's death and finds the band in fine form and having a great time. Great drumming, vocals and guitar work abound. Fans of early Bathroy (without the synths) will find alot to like. For that matter, any fan of good black metal will enjoy the disc.

Bands with distinctive sounds are rare. You know, the kind of band that you know by simply hearing a small snippet. Temnozor are one such band. Proudly holding the pagan/NS flag aloft, Temnozor shine in the night. Fragments is a collection of early material showing a transition from the earlier, rawer days to the more folk influenced pattern of Folkstorm.

Other stuff to listen for: Nuit Noir, Circle of Ouroborus, Azrael and Handful of Hate.

Thanks for the support.

Christian Zionists Work To Create '38 Again

http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=29241

When I want to really annoy my friends and enemies, I like to point out that Pearl Harbor was provoked by Roosevelt's oil embargo on Japan. The goal, of course, was to get the US involved in essentially a Zionist war against Germany in 1940.

Now, they're at it again. With Iraq already working, the Zionists want to add Iran to the plate. The Iran Counter-Proliferation Act of 2007 would have very real consequences on energy supply for Iran. Since Iran has a lot of oil but refines almost none, they import most of their refined petroleum products. The Act would effectively act as an embargo causing great hardship inside Iran.

Coincidence?

Diversity = Child Rape = Freedom

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/07/22/AR2007072200673_pf.html

ROCKVILLE, Md. -- Charges against a man accused of raping and repeatedly molesting a 7-year-old girl have been dropped because the court took too long to find an interpreter fluent in his native West African language.

Montgomery County Circuit Judge Katherine D. Savage dismissed the nearly three-year-old case against Mahamu Kanneh last week, saying the delays had violated the Liberian immigrant's right to a speedy trial.

"This is one of the most difficult decisions I've had to make in a long time," Savage said from the bench Tuesday. She said she was mindful of "the gravity of this case and the community's concern about offenses of this type."

A Net Radio Idea from Wired

http://www.wired.com/entertainment/music/commentary/listeningpost/2007/07/listeningpost_0723

Webcasting Royalties: A Modest Proposal
From Wired



New music royalty rates for webcasters went into effect last Monday, but the charges continue to be fiercely contested.

The good news is that net radio stations are still on the air and negotiations are ongoing. The bad news is that there's no guarantee of a lasting agreement that will ensure artists and labels get paid without bankrupting thousands of broadcasters.

At stake is the future of net radio -- a market that may seem like a niche sideline today but one that could explode with the emergence of ubiquitous broadband over Wi-Fi and next-generation wireless networks. Decisions made now could have an enormous impact on how we consume music in the coming years and decades. Suffice to say it's in no one's interest to kill net radio.

Label representative SoundExchange appears to hold all of the cards. The Copyright Royalty Board approved its proposed rates wholesale, and a federal appeals court refused to stay the fees pending a resolution of the case -- a possible sign the court is leaning toward upholding the scheme, given the havoc involved in applying fees and then revoking them later.

But SoundExchange can't press its advantage too hard or Congress could intervene under pressure from the estimated 50 million to 70 million Americans who listen to internet radio each month (numbers source: Arbitron/Bridge Ratings).

To advance the debate, here's a proposal for webcasting royalty rates that attempts to synthesize the interests of labels, webcasters and listeners.

All commercial webcasters should pay a percentage of revenue
Under the current Copyright Royalty Board, or CRB, scheme, webcasters are the only radio broadcasters required to pay a per-song-per-listener royalty rate. Satellite and cable radio stations and jukeboxes pay 7.5 percent of their revenue in performance royalties (a bill has been introduced in Congress that would charge the same rate for webcasters). In the United States, terrestrial radio stations pay no performance royalties at all.

Radio has traditionally dodged hefty royalty rates because it has been treated as a marketing arm of the industry. Terrestrial radio is a highly programmed medium, so it can easily be co-opted into the labels' hit-making strategies. It's so powerful that labels would happily pay to have their songs played, rather than the other way around, if it weren't illegal to do so.

Not so for net radio, which in principle could offer as many stations as there are listeners. It is highly customizable, and fans can exert so much control over playlists that it is not deemed effective as a marketing shovel. In addition, net radio listeners can make exact digital copies off the web, which is not possible with traditional radio, although in practice there are far easier ways to obtain the songs.

So it is proposed to punish net radio with unique and exorbitantly high royalties.

In fact, net radio does offer labels a powerful marketing vehicle. It's a fantastic try-before-you-buy platform that could dramatically increase listener satisfaction and music sales. The data alone from these services is invaluable. Yet none of that is recognized in the current scheme.

Dunbar Village Grand Jury Indictment

Black Funeral has been a part of the US black metal scene since...what..1994 or so? The early material (Vampyr, Empire) satisfies our need for raw black metal. Waters of Weeping is a well developed conceptual work employing black metal and a few - not too many - noise/industrial elements. Those of you who are still traumatized by Ordog need not worry. After two or three listens, we put the CD away - and waited. Weeping lingers, haunts and invariably returns with different and interesting sounds.

Live black metal. Good idea? Bad idea? Who cares: where's the beer? Take your choice. We like the idea of live metal. Even more, we like the idea of Mayhem on the road to hell in East Germany. Sure, the production purists and weekend warriors dislike the sound but isn't that kind of the point? Live in Leipzig is decay. Give us a severed pig head and pass the beer...

A Banner Greater Than Death, Der Sturmer. Truth. So much of our current culture is disposable and shallow. The cultural marxists and jewish merchants ply their trade and reap the consequences. Blood, honour, family, community, folk, loyalty. Our time is coming again. Talk to any honest white person and chances are you will find a national socialist. Yes, I know they say other things. The ideas, the love, the hope; the truth in their heart. A truth greater than death.

The newest release from Peste Noire arrived at the bunker late in the day on Thursday so we added some tracks. Not sure yet. Opinions are mixed. A great find is the demo from Häive called Epätoivon Vuoksi. A melancholic, folk-styled black metal. A very nice surpise.

Because Leonard Pitts wants to hear you whine.

Lawson, Avion

Walker, Nathan

Taylor, Jakaris

Lawson May Have Threatened Potential Witness

According to the Palm Beach Post, Avion Walker may have threatened a Dunbar Village resident who spoke on TV after the crime.

"[The resident] has never been attacked but said she was threatened after she appeared on TV news a few days after the rape.

She remembers seeing 14-year-old Avion Lawson, the first of three boys arrested in connection with the attack, walking by her apartment. She said he told her she'd better keep her mouth shut."

Loudoun County, VA Joins Fight Against Illegals

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/07/17/AR2007071700797.html?hpid=moreheadlines


...and for common sense. Loudoun County, Virginia (including the cities of Ashburn, Leesburg, Sterling and others) yesterday joined Prince William county in passing a reasonably tough measure against illegal immigrants. The resolution seeks to block illegals from receiving most county services and offers penalties for employers who hire the illegals.

The illegal immigrant population, by some estimates making up 50% of the student population in some Loudoun County schools, is responsible for increases in crime, gang activity and a decline in the standard of living most notably in the eastern sections of the county.

Anti-white, neo-communist activists such as Laura Valle of La Voz of Loudoun sharply criticized the resolution because it seeks to enforce laws and common sense rules. Neo-communists such as Valle typically support a parasitic tax and resource drain on white, working class Americans.

The resolution is vague and will need to be defined in further meetings.

Dunbar Village Update

Grand Jury decision expected on Wednesday.

http://www.wpbf.com/news/13688686/detail.html

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The fate of three teenagers heads to a grand jury this week in the gang-rape and assault of a mother and her 12-year-old son in a West Palm Beach housing project.

A grand jury is expected to decide Wednesday if Avion Lawson, 14, Nathan Walker, 16, and Jakaris Taylor, 15, will be indicted for the June 18 attack in Dunbar Village.

No word if Leonard Pitts has started a defense fund for the accused. Maybe he's waiting until the other suspects - up to 7 more according to some reports - are brought in and arraigned. You go Leonard!

Fox News today picked up the ongoing story of Muslim Keith Ellison's insult to National Socialism.

"It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that. After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it and it put the leader of that country [Hitler] in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted."

Ellison made the remarks on 08 July during a speech to a group called Athiests for Human Rights (no, I'm not making that up).

Wired: SoundExchange Wants DRM for Webcasts

http://blog.wired.com/music/2007/07/soundexchange-d.html

There appear to be at least two pieces missing from DiMA's description of the terms of an apparently prematurely-announced deal between webcasters and SoundExchange to cap of minimum per-station fees at $50,000 per year. Simson said SoundExchange would only agree to the cap if webcasters "become much more compliant in their reporting" and "work on a technologically-feasible solution" to stop people from recording internet radio."

That second bit, although it doesn't use the term explicitly, refers to wrapping streams in DRM. We'll see whether Pandora and other webcasters acquiesce to this in order to be spared the "billion dollar" fee they'd have to pay to continue operating without accepting SoundExchange's terms. It'd be pretty annoying to have to install a special DRM-equipped client for each webcaster you listen to, but worse still if personalized webcasting services were to become extinct.

Attention Leonard Pitts: Eastern Michigan Needs You



From news reports

Eastern Michigan University fired President John Fallon yesterday for his role in the coverup surrounding the death of a student, Laura Dickinson in December 2006.

According the the Associated Press, "Fallon's dismissal follows an independent law firm investigation and U.S. Department of Education report, both of which found that the 23,500-student public university violated the federal Clery Act, which requires colleges and universities to disclose campus security information.


After the body of Laura Dickinson [above, right] was discovered Dec. 15 in her dorm room, Eastern Michigan issued a statement that foul play was not suspected, despite evidence to the contrary."

The suspect in the case (pictured above left), Orange Taylor III, has pleaded not guilty to murder and criminal sexual conduct charges in Dickinson's death. He is scheduled for trial Oct. 15.

Once again, Leonard, these poor white folks need your help. Not only are they whining about the death of Laura Dickinson at the hands of a black man but the school has gone so far as to fire the President - and more dismissals may be in the works.

The way it looks to me, the President and other staff apparently see the world the same way you do. They lied to the family of the dead student; they lied to the school; they lied to the media; they lied to the community. They lied in an attempt to conceal the truth.

The school's public statements to the student body and community gave no indication of murder or rape. Meanwhile, police were interviewing four men as suspects, including Taylor, "who told campus police he previously had roamed through dorms to steal electronics" according to the AP.

I hope you're as loyal as you say you are because there are some folks who need you to come to their defense. The Eastern Michigan Board of Regents clearly takes a dim view of lying. And now that a black guy is the main suspect, well, that's clearly your cue. Charge ahead and tell them to stop whining and re-hire the president. Surely the University is not suggesting that a black guy could rape and murder someone. Tsk! Tsk! Yes, there's the whole cover-up problem but, hey, they'll get over it.

A Simple Idea

Hi,

How about we all just forget the 6th grade titillation crap and get on with the process of saving our race? Just a thought. Of course, some of you will need to drop you dicks long enough to respond. Christ, we're fucked....

A Sensible Comment About Leonard Pitts

From the comment section of the Des Moines Register

"I regularly enjoy Leonard Pitts' columns, but the Register does itself no good when it prints false claims made by Pitts as was done in his June 28 column ("Thanks, Neo-Nutsies, for the Vindication").

Pitts alleged that "black-on-white crime" is "a relative statistical rarity," according "to any number of studies and experts."

I've no idea whom these "experts" are, or which studies indicate black-on-white crime is "a relative statistical rarity," but the U.S. Department of Justice, which compiles statistics of this sort relating to all 50 states, and the Statistical Abstract of the United States published annually by the federal government, show beyond any doubt that when it comes to robbery, rape, murder, shootings, burglary and other violent crimes, blacks are between 15 and 20 times more likely to commit such crimes against whites than the other way around. This despite the fact that there are more than 4.5 times whites than blacks in the United States.

Surely there are white violent criminals, just as there are law-abiding black people, but for Pitts to make the absurd claim that black-on-white violent crime is "a relative statistical rarity" (relative to what?) does nothing to enhance the Register's image as a newspaper interested in the facts.

- Todd Blodgett,
Clear Lake."

It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that," Mr Ellison said. "After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader [Hitler] of that country in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted."

To applause from his audience of 300 members of Atheists for Human Rights, Mr Ellison said he would not accuse the Bush administration of planning 9/11 because "you know, that's how they put you in the nut-ball box - dismiss you".

Bill Introduced to Delay Rate Hikes

http://www.house.gov/smbiz/PressReleases/2007/pr-07-13-07-webcasting.htm

As Clock Ticks, Velázquez and Chabot Make Last Minute Attempt to Delay Internet Radio Royalty Rate Increase for Small Webcasters
Introduce Legislation to Postpone Fee Increase to Allow For Further Negotiations

WASHINGTON – Last night, Chairwoman of the Committee on Small Business, Nydia M. Velázquez and Ranking Member Steve Chabot came together to introduce bi-partisan legislation in a final attempt to postpone the implementation of new royalty rates for webcasters and allow additional time to find a solution. The new rates put into place by the Copyright Royalty Board (CRB), are scheduled to go into effect this Sunday, July 15 and many caution that their implementation will mean the end of the industry for Internet radio. Efforts to reach a compromise have not yet been successful, and this legislation, HR 3015, would delay implementation of the rate increase by 60 days, allowing continued negotiation so a satisfactory arrangement can be reached.

“We are coming down to the wire on this issue, and as the royalty rates currently stand, I am concerned that webcasters and musicians alike will be harmed, perhaps even irreparably,” said Chairwoman Velázquez. “There has not yet been an agreement reached that provides fair compensation to artists while allowing broadcasters to stay on the air without excessive fees. I urge my colleagues to support this bill to allow an opportunity for that compromise to be reached.”

The Mentality of Diversity

This is the world they wish for you...

"So a lady was raped. Big deal," resident Paticiea Matlock said. "There's too much other crime happening here."

Built in 1940 to house poor blacks, Dunbar Village's 226 units sit just blocks from million-dollar condos on the Intracoastal Waterway.

The public housing project's barracks-style buildings are spread across 17 grassy, tree-lined acres surrounded by an 8-foot iron fence. The average rent is about $150 a month.

In the year leading up to the rape, police were called to Dunbar Village 717 times.

Since the June 18 attack, police have increased patrols and blocked off one entrance.

As in other blighted neighborhoods where criminals seem to have free rein, residents live in fear.

"I try to be in my house no later than 7, and I don't come out," said Citoya Greenwood, 33, who lives in Dunbar with her 4-year-old daughter. "I don't even answer my door anymore."

RAIN Article on SX Rate Issue

http://www.kurthanson.com/archive/news/071307/index.shtml

Some highlights of the article:

In an interview with RAIN last night, Simson explained, "For the people who want to comply with the law and are in bona fide negotiations with us, we don't want those people to be intimidated. And we don't want them to stop streaming." Simson qualified his statement by noting, "That's just so long as they're continuing to pay under the license they had."

Although SoundExchange has not offered to put this commitment in writing, it would be hard for them to renege on a commitment they made in front of key Congressmen. As such, I believe that should give webcasters a fairly strong level of comfort if they choose to continue streaming on Monday.

Hail,

The Moonblood cover is lousy. Sorry. Our copy is really bad. It was sorta stuck to another tape when we got it....Rehearsal 11 is full of great music and it's one that we find some people haven't heard. Enjoy.

Det Germanske Folket has released a 2CD compilation of pagan metal bands called Nordic Warchants: Might Is Right. A good collection that varies between so-so and very good bands. Several tracks in the playlist crossing a variety of genres: black/pagan/folk and some things I just can't quite describe.

Profanatica is a great black metal band. No pretention, just a very focused force of anti-christian metal. 2007 sees the band back again (finally) with a full length release, Profanatitas De Domonatia. Some people are already calling the CD one of the best of '07. Here's your chance to decide.

The most interesting addition to the list comes from Medievil on the CD, Atruta. The songs contain a variety of instruments, programming and tempos, usually all in the same song. You'll either like it or hate it.

Also new of note is the latest release from Morrigan, The Damned. It's Ok, but.........seems kinda stale. The fire seems to have gone out from these guys.

Finally, Dark Hidden Productions has released a demo compilation from Darkthule covering Beyond the Endless Horizons, Summon Thee... and Awakening of the Ancient Past. One of the lesser appreciated
Pagan Front bands.

There's lots of other stuff in the list too. Thanks for your support.

Third Teen Arrested In Florida Rape Case

West Palm Beach. (Associated Press). A third teenager was arrested in the gang rape and assault of a Haitian immigrant woman and her 12-year-old son in a Florida housing project, police said Thursday.

Fingerprints in the woman's house linked 15-year-old Jakaris Sansay Taylor to the June 18 attack, West Palm Beach police spokesman Ted White said.

Up to 10 masked teenagers raped and sodomized the woman and beat her son, police have said. They also forced her at gunpoint to perform oral sex on the boy, she later told a TV station.

Taylor's mother, Jacqueline Minor, declined comment when reached by phone Thursday.

Two other teenagers, Avion Lawson, 14, and Nathan Walker, 16, were being held without bail in the assault and gang rape.

[Iron Will Radio comment: No mention if Leonard Pitts has used his Florida connections to track down the victim to remind her to stop her whining.]

Pandora Exec: SoundExchange Will Not Enforce New Royalty Rates on Sunday
By Eliot Van Buskirk July 12, 2007 | 7:35:30

At today's Congressional hearing about the new rates for online radio that would essentially destroy it (as readers of this blog already know), SoundExchange, which was scheduled to receive the new royalty payments on Monday morning (since the enforcement date falls on a Sunday), made a startling statement, according to Tim Westergren, founder of Pandora.

The SoundExchange executive promised -- in front of Congress -- that SoundExchange will not enforce the new royalty rates. Webcasters will stay online, as new rates are hammered out.

Westergren expressed relief that Pandora wouldn't have to shut down on Sunday in response to the new rates. He said, "It was getting pretty close. I always had underlying optimism that sanity was going to prevail, but I was beginning to wonder."

He said everyone who called their Congress person about this should feel that they had an effect on the process. "This is a direct result of lobbying pressure, so if anyone thinks their call didn't matter, it did. That's why this is happening." The flyer DiMA distributed to Congress today probably helped a bit too, but overall, it appears Congress intervened due to pressure from web radio listeners.

Funnily enough, Westergren told me this mere hours after a representative of SoundExchange said
that the new rates are "etched in stone." Evidently not.

Update: Another source -- close to the situation although not inside today's closed-door hearing -- confirmed the following: Pandora was there; "progress was made"; the minimum fees are indeed off the table; and SoundExchange and the webcasters that were part of the Copyright Royalty Board hearings are going to have another chat about the rates.

However, the source said the big question right now is whether webcasters not part of the CRB hearing might still have to pay the rates set by the board, minus the minimum fees.

Westergren had more to say, lending insight into a process that was largely opaque to non-participants. Apparently, the per-channel minimum fees mandated by the Copyright Royalty Board were never taken very seriously by those involved. They've now been taken off the table completely, saving Pandora, Live365, and other multicasters from their most imminent threat.

"No one thought those per station fees were remotely rational. It only makes sense that they're being taken off the table."

As for the Copyright Royalty Board? They're entirely cut out of the process, having set the rates and then refused a rehearing. Going forward without the royalties being collected, SoundExchange and webcasters will negotiate a new royalty rate with Congress looking over their shoulder -- "and last but not least, the public looking over Congress's shoulder." Alternatively, Congress now has time to consider the Internet Radio Equality Act, which would set webcaster royalties at 7.5 percent of revenue and allow them to continue operating pretty much as they have been.

Either way, this is a big win for webcasters and their listeners. [My second source confirmed that "it was a good day."]

Keep 'em burning..

Congress Calls in Both Sides of Rate Issue

Hollywood Reporter


RAIN Article

From RAIN:

The House Commerce Committee is calling on representatives from the webcast and recording industries to meet today to discuss a settlement that would provide Internet radio operators with a workable alternative to the proposed CRB rates scheduled to go into effect Sunday, according to an article in the Hollywood Reporter.

Discussion between the two sides comes at the behest of Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA who has actively voiced concerns in Congress regarding the CRB's disastrous effects on the webcast industry.

In a March hearing titled "The Future of Radio", Markey, chairman of the House Commerce Committee's Telecommunications and Internet Subcommittee, called the CRB ruling "a body blow to many nascent Internet radio broadcasters and further exacerbates the marketplace imbalance between what different industries pay."

URGENT URGENT URGENT
IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED FOR THURSDAY, JULY 12TH

Time and options are running out for Internet Radio. Late yesterday, the U.S. Court of Appeals DENIED the emergency stay sought on behalf of webcasters, millions of listeners and the artists and music they support.

UNLESS CONGRESS ACTS BY JULY 15th, it is the end of the road for Internet radio.

We are appealing to the millions of Internet radio listeners out there, the webcasters they support and the artists and labels we treasure to rise up and make your voices heard before this vibrant medium is silenced.

This situation is grave, but that makes the message all the simpler and most serious. CALL YOUR SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES RIGHT AWAY and urge them to support the "Internet Radio Equality Act." If they've already co-sponsored, thank them and tell them to fight to bring it to the floor for an immediate vote. If the line is busy, call back. Call until you know your voice has been heard. Your voices are what have gotten us this far -- Congress has listened. Now, they are our only hope.

TELL THEM.

We are outmatched by lobbying power and money but we are NOT outmatched by facts and passion and the power of our voices.

Talking Points

1) I am a constituent and I'm calling to ask Congressman/woman or Senator ________ to save Internet radio by co-sponsoring the Internet Radio Equality Act.
2) Yesterday the Court of Appeals DENIED the emergency stay filed on behalf of Internet radio broadcasters. Therefore, unless Congress acts by July 15th, the new ruinous royalty rates will go into effect on Sunday, threatening the future of all internet radio.
3) Please co-sponsor the Internet Radio Equality Act and fight to bring the bill to the floor for an immediate vote. Thank you.
4) ARTISTS: Internet radio enables artists like myself to reach fans throughout the country and enjoy exposure and airplay that we may otherwise have not received. I'm asking you to co-sponsor the Internet Radio Equality Act and fight to bring the bill to the floor for an immediate vote. Thank you.

Drudkh

From Supernal Music:

It has been brought to our notice that more than one DRUDKH fansite has appeared on the internet, including a couple in myspace. In case this causes confusion, it should be made clear that DRUDKH have no website, no electronic or physical contact address, and do not post on the internet at all.

Also, the photographic assemblage that has been circulating on the internet purporting to be a DRUKDH band photograph is a fake. That is not a DRUDKH photograph at all: some random person made that up seeking to boost his score in the Metal Archives; DRUDKH have had no photographs taken, ever, and are not interested in any of that self-aggrandising Rockstar crap, let alone corresponding with anyone, doing interviews, and posting in frivolous networking websites like facebook or myspace.

A Phone Call From Dick Morris

So,

We're sitting around the bunker tonight when Dick Morris called. Ok, so it was just a recording of Dick but it was a live person announcing the recording. The message? Iran's nukes. Of course, we had to listen.

Two interesting points:

First, the message implied that Iran already has nuclear weapons. Second, the message clearly links Iran with Al Qaeda on the very same day that the folks at Al Qaeda issued a message warning Iran to stay out of Iraq or face attacks.

The message also referenced Hitler - twice!!

Of course we signed up. I can't wait for the fun!!!

Message From Live365 About 15 July

Hi Live365 Broadcasters,

As the clock winds down during this final week before the July 15th deadline, I wanted to update you on Live365's service plans and our continued activities to oppose the unsupportable new sound recording royalty rates set by the CRB.

In answer to the top question on broadcasters' minds: we have no plans to shut down on July 15th when the billions in per channel minimums and significantly higher rates come due, unless forced to by SoundExchange.

We believe Congress and the public share our outrage over the fundamental inequity in performance royalty rates. Why is it that terrestrial radio pays NO royalties and satellite and cable radio pay much lower royalties than Internet radio to SoundExchange? Many artists have also contacted us to voice opposition to new CRB rates that will decimate Internet radio and eliminate their chance to be heard. The momentum of public opinion and business sense is on our side and we plan to continue to fight for artists, webcasters and their audiences until a resolution is found.

In the meantime, let us assure you: webcasters covered under the Live365 SoundExchange license will not be responsible for any retroactive fees. Upon resolution of the new rates, Live365 will honor its obligation to provide advance notice of any change in pricing with the option for you to continue services or not, prior to imposition of any increases.

Here's what's going on this week on the negotiation, legal and legislative fronts.

First, negotiation has been proceeding slowly even though SoundExchange has been requested by Congress to negotiate with webcasters. I am in Washington D.C. this week with other SaveNetRadio Coalition partners to make myself available for face-to-face negotiations with SoundExchange. We'll keep you posted.

Second, we are continuing with litigation. Although the D.C. Circuit Court just denied our Petition for Emergency Stay of Payments under the new rates, as was expected, we will vigorously proceed with our appeal.

Third, we are still actively pursuing Congressional cosponsors and support of the Internet Radio Equality Act. The bill would throw out the unrealistic CRB internet radio rates and replace them with those paid by satellite radio.

All of us have worked hard to protect the medium that we love. Broadcasters have spent amazing amounts of time and money on PSAs, website updates, interviews, testimonials, letters and calls to Congress. Thank you all for your valiant efforts. In turn, Live365 has invested countless hours of staff time and cash from testifying in the initial hearings over a year ago to our current presence in D.C. As the largest supporter of independent artists through their primary fans—our webcasters, Live365 will continue the battle until there is a resolution. We will continue to fight for parity and fairness as well as be the voice of reason! We firmly believe that we are on the right side of history.

Please stay tuned!

All the best,



Mark Lam
CEO, Live365

From Iron Will Radio:

We will continue broadcasting. Stay tuned. Heil!

Canadian Man Hated for Posting Free Speech

My favorite quote, courtesy of Richard Warman: "The material in this case was pretty horrific," he said. "Putting a stop to this kind of conduct is really essential to any modern democratic society." There was no immediate report if Warman actually said that with a straight face.


Canadian Style Free Speech

Of course, in the type of society we're looking for, the press and internet would also be regulated. The only difference is that we understand that the press/internet must serve the goals of the state and the community of folk.

Prince William County Blinks

Prince William County in Virginia almost got it right. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, the Board of Supervisors managed to pass a bill reinforcing crime, lawlessness and parasitic behavior.

Washington Post Story

Meeting Audio Here


As initially proposed, the resolution would have implemented common sense items like 1) requiring police to check immigration status when they stop a person for any crime, no matter how minor; and, 2) denying illegals free public education and other public services.

Also removed was a provision that would have allowed county residents to sue county agencies caught providing help to illegals. Nice idea, accountability and all but, come on, did they really think that would pass?

The new police procedure allows police to check the immigration status of anyone in custody with - here it comes - "probable cause." Good luck on that one guys.

The new resolution provides a 60 day period for the County to determine what services it can legally deny criminals. Given the timidity of the Board, it is expected that illegals will continue to be parasites, drawing off the tax dollars and good will of hard working Americans.

You may object to the term parasite but that's what fits. They are unwanted, uninvited and lots of other uns that can't think of right now.

So, take heart illegals in Prince William county, you can continue to go on flooding our cities, refusing to assimilate and destroying our culture all the while enjoying your free education and medical care. Golly.

No "N Word"? What's A Racist To Do :)

NAACP Kills The N Word

"The 'n-word' is dead according to the NAACP, which staged a mock funeral for the racial slur during its annual convention in Detroit yesterday, complete with a horse-drawn caisson, black roses and a plywood casket.

Maybe They Used Lethal Ingestion

http://www.iht.com/articles/2007/07/10/news/china.php

China's official Xinhua press agency announced the execution but did not say how Zheng was killed. According to news reports, "In most cases, the court police execute prisoners by shooting them in the back of the head, though recently the police have also used lethal injections."

We here at Iron Will Radio suspect that it was Death By Lethal Ingestion. We figure they started with some of that tainted pet food and just kept going...

Thoughts on Leonard Pitts and A Question

After the initial outcry against Pitts' hateful first article, the usual suspects came to his defense. Pitts himself contends that he addressed his two articles to "white supremacists" and what he refers to as "haters, bigots and other low, pathetic men."

The truth is obvious. In the first paragraph of the "cry me a river" piece, Pitts sets the tone for the article by writing "It always amazes me when white people put on the victim hat." The phrase "white people" is unambiguous to me. In the final paragraph he writes, "I have four words for [racists] and any other white Americans who feel themselves similarly victimized." Again, Pitts specifically includes "white Americans" in his critique. No ambiguity.

Pitts then demonstrates his willingness to silence any white American who dares speak That Which Must Not Be Said: "...one occasionally hears mewling noises from that subset of my white countrymen who feel put upon by big, bad racial minorities." Again, if you are white and recognize inequalities a) only you feel that way, no one else does; b) you are to be mocked; and, c) any suffering, pain, upset or legitimate problems/concerns are to be trivialized and blamed on you.

The tone of Pitts' phrase strikes me as chillingly similar to the language of the sexual/physical abuser. The abuser's world is built on fear; the checks and balances of reality need not apply. And like all abusers (black or white), the depths of Pitts' own inadequacies, fears and failings fuel his savage attacks. To quote that great American philosopher, Clint Eastwood: "It's what a man knows about himself inside that makes him afraid."

Consider the message implicit in his simple phrase "...one occasionally hears mewling noises from that subset of my white countrymen who feel put upon by big, bad racial minorities":

As a minority, my actions are to be accepted without question. If you feel afraid, then you must learn to accept my behaviors. Hate affirmative action? Too bad. Stop your whining. Your internal experience - your barometer of reality - is wrong, wrong, wrong! Does your common sense perception of reality tell you that blacks in general are more violent? Again: too bad! Your perception is wrong. Do you recoil at our society now full of sex, violence and a repudiation of all the core values used to build your culture? Tough. You'll learn to like it. In fact, it's your fault. If minorities are violent, if society is a cesspool, then you are to blame. Years of oppression, years of injustice. Why, you deserve what you get. You are pathetic. You are "the lunatic fringe."

Pitts' message is one of violence, aggression and arrogance. How long will it go on?Many abusers continue their behaviors unabated for years and years despite family knowledge of the problem. The family system works in an admittedly unhealthy way but it does function. Life goes on.

Which leads to a question. What, if anything, is the function of white society in maintaining the behavior of people like Pitts? What do we get out of it? It is one thing to complain about the behavior but it is quite another to stop and examine our own issues. We can only fix ourselves.

Some Info On Nathan Walker

1. "Walker was not in school; his mother had been arrested nine times, his father eight. Where was the Florida Department of Children and Families? And before Walker became old enough to drop out of school, what had the School District of Palm Beach County done to keep him enrolled?"

2. "His mother, Ruby Nell Walker, has been arrested nine times on charges that include aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and assault with intent to do bodily harm. His father, also named Nathan Walker, has been arrested eight times."

3. "The woman [the victim] is afraid because her attackers said they would find her and set her on fire if she told the police what they did."

Excellent Kurt Hanson Article

A week and a half ago, the negotiating committee of SoundExchange offered a "compromise solution" to webcasters: They announced at a House subcommittee hearing (and in a synchronized press release) an offer to limit the CRB judges' $500-per-channel minimum to a maximum of $2,500 per service.

This supposed "solution" is a bizarre one for several reasons. It doesn't address the much greater issue of the $.0008-to-$.0019 per song per listener rate that, minimums or no minimums, makes webcasting financially unviable for almost everybody. And it has no impact at all on certain types of webcasters (e.g., streams of AM/FM stations, Internet-only services that aren't massively multichannel, etc.), so it's not really any kind of industry-wide "solution" at all.

But last week, journalists revealed that SoundExchange had hidden two key terms from Congress and the press: (A) It was offered only through 2008. (Either through the beginning or end of 2008; it's not clear.) (B) And the offer was conditional on webcasters giving up their lobbying efforts in Congress to have the underlying law changed.

Attention Leonard Pitts: More Imaginary Black Violence


http://www.palmbeachpost.com/localnews/content/local_news/epaper/2007/07/08/s1c_DUNBAR_SIDE_0708.html

Authorities said 14-year-old Avion Lawson (pictured) and 16-year-old Nathan Walker are being charged as adults with armed sexual battery by multiple perpetrators, sexual performance by a child, armed home invasion and aggravated battery.


Sunday, July 08, 2007

WEST PALM BEACH - When she and her son boarded that American Airlines flight seven years ago, her family thought they would be safer here than in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

But that feeling of safety dissolved as an illusion in the 35-year-old woman's gruesome gang rape at gunpoint and the assault of her 12-year-old son at the Dunbar Village housing project.

"Our dad brought us down so everyone could have a better life," said the woman's 32-year-old brother, who lives a few miles from Dunbar Village community. "Nobody expected something like that to happen in America."

Their relatives now are speaking out about the June 18 tragedy, its victims and the aftermath while also filling in the gaps about a crime that has horrified even veteran investigators.

Armed gunmen forced themselves into the woman's apartment, where they repeatedly raped her, smashed a plate over the boy's head and poured household chemicals into his eyes and over her body, according to police accounts.

So far, two teenagers have been arrested and charged in the case. The victims said up too 10 were involved.

Nathan Walker, 16, and Avion Lawson, 14, are facing charges as adults of armed sexual battery while wearing a mask, home invasion, aggravated battery and charges related to allegedly forcing the woman to have sex with her son.

"They hit him and made him do stuff," the woman's brother said, "and when he didn't do it, they made his mom do stuff."

The woman's father said the attackers poured ammonia on his daughter, a suffocating chemical whose gases alone can burn the eyes and lungs, in attempt to destroy DNA evidence.

Police spokesman Ted White would not confirm or deny ammonia was the cleaning agent used. It also was unclear Saturday whether it was ammonia that the attacker poured in the boy's eyes.

"It's hard to look at him and imagine what happened," the woman's brother said. "It's painful."

Family members said the boy now can see, though the excruciating pain remains. About 48 hours after the attack, the boy was immobile in a hospital bed, a 1 1/2 -inch scar stitched across the top left of his skull and bandages covering both eyes.

"His eyes were closed - always crying," the woman's brother recalled.

The boy and his mother walked about a mile to Good Samaritan Medical Center at least two hours or so after the attack, White said.

The woman's brother said that was their only means of getting medical help. The attackers "robbed them and took everything from the house," he said. That included a cellular phone, the home phone and even a fax machine, the brother added.

The family was afraid and did not want to live in Dunbar Village, but the two could not afford much else after the mother, a nurse assistant at the time, fell and injured her back. (The boy's father lives Haiti.)

The woman and son have moved out of Dunbar Village, and the family said they want to relocate somewhere else in the area. The family suspects neighbors probably heard her screams and the attacks through the wafer-thin walls but did nothing out of fear.

West Palm Beach police announced Saturday that a fund through St. Ann's Church, where the woman was a parishioner, has been set up with Wachovia Bank to assist with the family's moving and living expenses. Her faith, the family said, is helping her get through the tragedy.

"She has faith in God because she always says, 'Whatever happens, the police will catch" the attackers, her brother said. "She says she will get justice."

Agressiva 88

If you disagree with this guy, you're full of hate


German Jewish leader calls for ban on neo-Nazi party



BERLIN (AFP)---A Jewish leader in Germany has called for a ban on the NPD neo-Nazi party.

"Political leaders must resume the banning procedure," Dieter Graumann, vice president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, told the daily Frankfurter Rundschau.

"If the NPD were banned, the party would at least not have at
its disposal the millions that it currently receives as electoral campaign support to propagate hate."

The NPD is represented in two regional parliaments in eastern Germany.

Banning the party has been a recurring debate in the country.

A potential ban has been supported by several political leaders, including Berlin’s social-democratic mayor, Klaus Wowereit, but legal hurdles remain.

The last attempt to ban the party was dismissed by Germany’s constitutional court in 2003.

Graumann’s call to ban the NPD came as extreme-right demonstrators took to the streets in the city of Frankfurt on Saturday but were outnumbered by counter-protesters, with police arresting 200 people.

Some 550 far-right demonstrators gathered in the afternoon in the western city compared to 3,500 counter-protesters, police said.

Regional authorities had authorised the extreme-right demonstration. Many demonstrators arrived late, however, with counter-protesters blocking the area where they were to gather.

Police arrested those who had blocked areas including a public transport station

Prince Williams Co., VA On the Right Track

From the Washington Post:

Prince William County is moving to enact what legal specialists say are some of the toughest measures in the nation targeting illegal immigrants, including a provision that would direct police to check the residency status of anyone detained for breaking the law -- whether shoplifting, speeding or riding a bicycle without a helmet.

The measures would also compel county schools and agencies -- including libraries, medical clinics, swimming pools and summer camps -- to verify the immigration status of anyone who wants to use services in Virginia's second-largest county. Courts have upheld the right of undocumented immigrants to a public education, raising the possibility of a legal challenge.

Read the entire story here:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/07/05/AR2007070502151.html?hpid=topnews

Here's my favorite line:

"There's a lot of hate in this county," said Tulio Diaz, a native of Puerto Rico who has lived in Prince William since 1972. He also suspects another motive behind the measures.

"It's an election year, and it's a great wedge issue," he said. "So who do you pick on?"

So let's review: If I want to enforce existing laws, then I'm guilty of "hate." Ah, I see. Thanks.

And people wonder why more and more of us are starting to stand up for ourselves. We're tired of being pushed around. Tired of the taxes. Tired of the crime. Tire of the double standards. We're tired of labels being thrown around if we dare to express an opinion.

Your day is coming. There will come a reckoning. Nature always gets back to even.

Email to Greg Kane

Mr. Kane,

I just read the following quote attributed to you:

“Hey, didn’t Americans – of ALL racists [sic] – already kick your German brothers’ asses back in the ‘40s?”

Is this accurate?

If so, I find your comments extremely insensitive. My family traces roots back to 15th century Germany. In the US, my relatives served under George Washington in the Revolutionary War. I suspect that most of the American WWII soldiers of German extraction took no pleasure in destroying their ancestral home.

I can find no pleasure in the Pyrrhic victory of WWII. No delight, no joy. The country of my birth destroyed the country of my ancestors. While you may rejoice in turning a clever phrase, your words are shallow and callous; your words sicken me.

More SoundExchange Stupidity -

For cap, SX demands webcasters abandon current and future legislative efforts

"But what their press release didn't mention, was the quid pro quo nature of their offer. SoundExchange would reduce their administrative fee, if those organizations agreed to abandon their legislative efforts to protest the royalty rates now and in the future. In addition, the fee reduction would only be good for 18 more months, thereby forcing those organizations to fight all over again in 2009 against the same problem."

From Wired blog

The Copyright Royalty that set the new online radio royalty rates apparently didn't understand that webcasters such as Pandora and Live365 offer thousands of streams, each of which would cost $500 a month under the new rates, killing both sites immediately.

SoundExchange issued a press release saying that it would be willing to limit this minimum-per-channel charge to $2,500 per month until 2008.

DiMA responded immediately that it would agree to this, but only if the term for the new arrangement were extended to 2010 -- or, preferably, forever. Said DiMA head Jon Potter,

"A billion-dollar 'minimum fee' is equally absurd in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 or 2010. It should be eliminated – period."

Whatever they decide on, it will have to happen soon, because the new rates go into effect in 16 days. It'd be a shame to see Pandora, Live365, and other multi-stream webcasters eliminated.
