Ron Paul on CIA Targeting Congress

 

RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul, speaking on the Fox Business show The Independents Wednesday night, addresses the Central Intelligence Agency’s spying on the Senate Intelligence Committee — seemingly to cover up torture revelations against the agency. Paul notes the irony that Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) “doesn’t care about our privacy, but, lo and behold, she does care about her own.”

RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tennessee — A newly released video shows detention deputies at Tennessee’s Rutherford County Jail pepper-spraying a detained individual while he was locked into a restraint chair. The victim, who had been detained on a charge of “resisting,” put up no visible struggle. An officer identified as Deputy James Vandermeer can be seen inserting pepper spray into the gap in the “spit shield,” an appliance that covers the victim’s face. After the shield was removed ten minutes later, the inmate can be seen convulsing and crying for help for an hour and fifteen minutes. He never received medical attention. Vandermeer — who had previously been fired for a DUI arrest — claimed in his official report that the inmate had been “combative,” an assertion contradicted by the video evidence.

Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Discusses The Constitution, NSA Spying and Torture

 

When I was brought up we were taught that Communist Russia were the ones that were going to kill us, bomb our country and all this.  That Communist Russia was so bad because they followed their people, they snooped on them, they arrested them, put them in secret prisons…they disappeared them. These sorts of things were part of Russia.  We’re getting more and more like that.

- Steve Wozniak in the video below

Steve Wozniak is not only co-founder of Apple Computer, he is an extremely thoughtful person and patriot.  In the video below, Steve was approached in an airport and he took the time to provide us with some thoughts about all of the disturbing authoritarian trends happening in these United States today.  He covered a lot of key points in just a few minutes.  Enjoy!

Bush Administration Convicted of War Crimes - Dr. Francis Boyle

Former U.S. President George W. Bush recently dedicated his Presidential Library in Dallas. The ceremony included speeches by President Obama, ex-President Bush, and every other living ex-president. But none of the speeches so much as mentioned to Iraq war — the undertaking that dominated George W. Bush’s presidency, and will define his historic legacy.

This omission might be due, at least in part, to the fact that Mr. Bush is now a convicted war criminal who dares not travel abroad out of fear of being arrested.

In February 2011, Bush was forced to cancel a scheduled appearance in Geneva, Switzerland after human rights groups filed a criminal complaint charging him with violating international treaties against torture.

His trouble increased dramatically a year ago when Bush — along with former Vice President Dick Cheney, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, and several other top Bush administration officials — were convicted of war crimes in absentia by a special war crimes tribunal in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission was convened and conducted according to internationally recognized procedures and rules of evidence, and the week-long hearing ended with the five-member panel unanimously delivering guilty verdicts.

What is the significance of that tribunal? Is its verdict legally binding? Are there troublesome aspects to the idea that a foreign tribunal can sit in judgment of a U.S. President — whatever we may think of his actions? We will discuss these vitally important questions with Dr. Francis Boyle, a professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law. He served as a prosecutor at the tribunal.

Martial Law in Boston Did Not Catch the Suspect

I awoke this Saturday morning reflecting back on the heinous crime committed causing loss of life and so many casualties, grieving for the victims and their families.  Then reflecting on the massive manhunt for this 19 year old, the lone surviving suspect of the crime, and the level that this manhunt has grown to.  It appears all levels of law enforcement were involved, from local police to federal agents.  Looking back at the massive amount of man (and woman) hours involved, the millions of dollars expended in the pursuit and lost community revenues due to city lock downs, along with the MSM spin time devoted to the coverage of the man hunt for this suspect, I think back to how this would have been handled in the pre-police militarization state we find our selves in.

When all is said and done, for now, the suspected criminal in custody, the cities are no longer locked down and life in these towns resume.  So is it to be assumed the man hunt mission was triumphant?  The police state enacting marshal law and locking down five cities came up empty handed.  It took a home owner checking his personal property to find the suspect and close the current chapter of this story that a dominating military presence in the local streets could not, at least up to that point in time.

In the end, five cities locked down, cell phone service killed, people locked into their homes, military and militarized police patrolling the streets and entering to search door to door.  The result when the victim was captured was praise and adulation, mission accomplished.  The other mission accomplished was the social engineering, not only to the people in the Boston area, but also all those tuning in to the MSM, as armored personnel carriers, SWAT teams on roof top and police carrying M-16 rifles (called assault weapons if owned by civilians) while searching your homes are a good thing, as giving up person freedom and liberty is a small price to pay for false security.  Finally, the assistance of an alert home owner was needed to accomplish what the police state was having great difficulty in completing.

Martial Law in Boston Did Not Catch the Suspect

By Daniel McAdams

Look at these chilling photos of a major American city under total martial law. The local police force and investigative units have switched over to military assault vehicles on the streets, robo-cop science-fiction soldiers plugged in to all manner of spooky devices looking like the Borg and screaming orders like “if you want to live, turn off your cell phones.”

We read the shocking full story in the Washington Post today. Perhaps some of us are too naive, but this still seems unreal in the United States:

“By order of the state, a public transit system that serves more than 1.3 million riders a day was padlocked. Amtrak trains were suspended between Boston and New York. Businesses, offices and some of the world’s greatest universities were shut. Taxis were ordered off the streets for part of the day. Residents were instructed to stay inside.”

As does this:

“An indication of the complex investigation ahead came Friday night, when an Obama administration official told NBC News that Tsarnaev would not be given a Miranda warning when he is physically able to be interrogated after receiving medical treatment.

“Instead, the official said, the government will invoke a legal rule known as the ‘public safety exception,’ which will enable investigators to question Tsarnaev without first advising him of his right to remain silent and to be afforded legal counsel.”

But this is what strikes one the most, pondering all of the above: the police state did not catch the suspect. The borg did not catch the suspect. Martial law did not catch the suspect. People forced to stay in their homes did not catch the suspect. Warrantless searches did not catch the suspect.

 

Like the government’s initial failure (or worse) to identify and apprehend the suspects before the bombing, the government also failed in its military assault on an entire city.

Let us never forget that Dzhokar Tsarnaev was discovered by a private citizen, who happened to go out and check on his boat (i.e. violating the lockdown order of the cops), see a body inside of it, and call the cops. In other words, the police state achieved nothing but the psychological conditioning of the population: when we, the state, decide any particular event is important enough, you will lose every single right including possibly the right to life if you resist.

Writing in the Washington Times Communities section, Thomas Mullen sums it up nicely:

19-year-old Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev is in custody. Assuming that Tsarnaev is indeed guilty of these crimes, a very real threat to public safety has been taken off the streets. That’s the good news.

The bad news is that the Tsarnaev brothers have taken the last vestiges of a free society in America down with them.

The Bill of Rights was already on life support before this tragedy. Before the dust settled after 9/11, the 4th Amendment had been nullified by the Patriot Act. The 5th and 6th Amendments were similarly abolished with the Military Commission Act of 2006 and the 2012 NDAA resolution, which contained a clause allowing the president to arrest and indefinitely detain American citizens on American soil without due process of law.

This legacy is the real Boston tragedy. The Rubicon has been crossed.

Truth. Justice. Accountability. The idea of an international rule of law appeals to our innate sense of justice, but the most horrific plans are often cloaked in the most beautiful lies. Just as the ideals of international law are used to cloak the imperial ambitions of the globalists, so too is the idea of seeking justice in these controlled courtrooms a phoney pipe dream. Join us today on The Corbett Report as we explore the only real solution to this problem: removing the bodyguard of lies from the power elite and to withdrawing ourselves from the systems that seek to legitimize their rule.

President Obama Has Turned Journalists into Criminals

President Obama Has Turned Journalists into Criminals, Espionage Act of 1917

Will tonight’s presidential debate moderator have the balls to address this crucial issue?

If by “change” President Obama meant criminalizing journalism in the United States, then he’s succeeded.

Why should you care?  The investigative journalism that Obama has silenced could have exposed more corruption in the U.S. government, military, banking industry; corruption that has caused anguish to numerous Americans.  The reports that will never be heard, read, or seen on TV may have led to positive change.

The Obama administration is suffocating investigative journalism at an alarming rate through the abuse of the Espionage Act of 1917, an act more prone to be used to protect government secrecy than national security.  Before Obama, the act had been used only three times total since 1917.  The current administration has used it six times to go after whistleblowers and the journalists who protect and reveal their information.

President Obama was bold enough to use the Espionage Act to  subpoena New York Times journalist James Risen in an attempt to force him to ‘give up’ information on a CIA whistleblower.  Risen accused the administration of trying to silence journalists and refused to acquiesce stating,

“Can you have a democracy without aggressive investigative journalism? I don’t believe you can, and that’s why I’m fighting.”

Risen predicted Obama’s attack against him would have an unprecedented chilling effect on mainstream investigative journalism in the US.  He was right.
