Department of No! They Would Never to Do That!

This is ironic; all those things you thought no Republican, let alone a decent American or honest person, would do. Stuff like stealing elections and going to war under false pretences.

Those are just a few of the more than 100 people with sensitive military and government connections that law enforcement is tracking because they are linked to “outlaw motorcycle gangs.”

Escalating Violent Militarism for Oppression-Ferguson & Gaza

Re-POST: Over-Fortifying Mayberry!!!

According to Zac Corrigan in “Militarization of police in America” the Pentagon under the Obama administration is equipping -- OVER-EQUIPPING -- US police departments across the country with former overseas military weaponry and vehicles.

The ominous dots aren’t hard to connect for any of us paying the least bit of attention to the dramatic and merciless economic polarization in America along with the escalation of inappropriate and inhumane lethal force by the police. Read more about Re-POST: Over-Fortifying Mayberry!!!

Exterminating the Legacy of Anne Frank

“In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquility will return again.” ― Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Why US Propaganda Goose-Step to Nuclear War with Russia?

EU court says CIA ran "black site" at Stare Kiejkuty (and Corrente blast from the past in 2006)

Reuters:

The CIA ran a secret jail on Polish soil, the European Court of Human Rights ruled on Thursday, piling pressure on Poland, one of Washington's closest allies, to break its long silence about the global programme for detaining al Qaeda suspects.

The court said it had been established that the CIA used a facility in a northern Polish forest, code named "Quartz", as a hub in its network for interrogating suspected al Qaeda operatives rounded up after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. .....

Thursday's ruling was the first time that a court in Europe had said that the CIA operated one of the secret jails - often referred to as "black sites" -on the continent.

The court case was brought by lawyers for two men, Saudi-born Abu Zubaydah, and Saudi national Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, who are now both inmates at Guantanamo Bay, the U.S. military's prison on Cuba.

They alleged they were flown in secret to a remote Polish airfield, then transferred to the CIA-facility near the village of Stare Kiejkuty where they were subject to treatment they said amounted to [was] torture. ...

The court found Poland violated its obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights to prevent torture, ensure the right to liberty, and properly investigate allegations a crime had been committed on its territory.

The ruling from Strasbourg may have implications for other European states alleged to have hosted CIA prisons: similar cases have been lodged with the court in Strasbourg against Romania and Lithuania. ...

That I did not know.

The court ruling did not directly cover the United States, which is outside its jurisdiction. ...

Yes, that would be the Hague, where Bush and Obama should be dragged, in chains, whenever they leave the United States, just like Pinochet. Read more about EU court says CIA ran "black site" at Stare Kiejkuty (and Corrente blast from the past in 2006)

A wee problem with the text of the Thirteenth Amendment

Here's the text:

Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Not that I'm an originalist, but I'd be a lot happier if the Thirteenth Amendment were revising as follows: Read more about A wee problem with the text of the Thirteenth Amendment

CIA Criminality Grounds for Impeachment

It comes as no surprise to at least some citizens that the CIA is an intelligence agency that operates outside US law and defies congressional oversight. Interestingly this week, one of its strongest and most consistent apologists, Senator Dianne Feinstein, has outrightly charged the CIA with perpetrating criminal behaviors.
