Obama, the F-word, & the Criminalization of News-Gathering

The f-word is fascism.

The first amendment matters. Should matter. Apparently not so much to the Justice Department and Democratic President Barack Obama.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Make ‘em Prove the Causality before They Cause Any More Suffering: Part Two, the Fall and After

In Part One, I asked whether the Carmen Reinhart/Kenneth Rogoff study and book didn’t show that, on average, nations experiencing debt-to-GDP ratios above 90% had negative rates of economic growth? And I said the answer to the question was “no.” But I didn’t explain why that was true. Read below the fold...

Bill of Rights Circled the Bowl in Boston -- FLUSH!!!

Barry Grey in "American democracy in shambles" writes:

With the implementation of a state of military siege against the population of Boston last week, the American ruling class has crossed a historical, legal and political Rubicon.

The die is cast and the sun is setting on the democratic forms of rule that have existed in the United States for the past two centuries.

100 Gitmo Hunger Strikers Appeal to Zero Dark Americans

Word has it 100 of the 166 inmates of Guantanamo are participating in a hunger strike.

The innocent detainees (“officially” 86 but God only knows how many more) of Guantanamo apparently still think there is a snowball’s chance in hell that if Zero Dark Americans -- especially the deluded “personality over principle” progressives -- really knew the truth of what had and has been happening to them before and during their unending detainments, the colossal abuses they have had to endure (and especially lately that they are enduring) not to mention their colossal and ever escalating despair after 11 LONG YEARS of incarceration without due process -- waiting, waiting, waiting for a not slow-go but really NO-go Obama-Godot, then those Zero Dark Americans would actually give a serious shit.

Fascist Obama & Personality Over Principle Progressives

The CIA Director will be John Brennan.

Norman Pollack in “Architect of Terror” points out some of the dimensions of Brennan’s oversight (familiar territory already to him): armed drones, targeted assassinations, rendition, black holes, subsidies to domestic fascist groups for breaking up "radical" rallies, and other “cloak and dagger” sadism.

Pollack also writes: “In Obama, the Agency, along with JSOC, has its impressario, cheerleader, and now tactical adviser, rolled in one.” Read below the fold...

Libby’s Political Stew: Drones, Rand Paul, Brennan, Jane Fonda

Rand Paul’s Message to Obama: Don’t Drone Me Bro
by Medea Benjamin

[Benjamin comments on how Rand Paul brought up the question that if drones had existed back in the tumultuous anti-Vietnam War 60’s and 70’s, would Jane Fonda and students at Kent State college have been droned or threatened with droning for treason with their protests? He warns that the threshold of defining the enemy may become so lowered that “free speech and assembly” could become regarded as dangerous insurgency.] Read below the fold...

More on the Threat of Dictatorship in U.S.

From the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness....”

U.S. Slouching to Dictatorship

No one is safe from assassination by the American President, including American citizens -- ANYWHERE on the globe.

The American President and his small cabal of operatives are immune from any oversight and accountability of said assassinations.

Thus sayeth the American President and his small cabal of lawyers of the Department of Justice and their “secret memos” paralleling the memos of the last American President’s assumption of the executive right to detain and torture ANYONE at will. Read below the fold...
