Rand Paul Tries to Fire & Arrest Journalist for Asking Him Questions

Published on Aug 1, 2012 by wearechange

Luke Rudkowski talks with Abby Martin of MediaRoots.org and RT about
U.S. Senator Rand Paul's attempt to get her arrested and stripped of
her press credentials for asking him tough questions in the Capitol
building. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtO5INu-VY4 A week after our video with Abby Martin came out on YouTube,
the RT office, where Abby works, got an ominous phone call from the
Senate Media Relations Committee. The Committee was acting on behalf
of Rand Paul and threatened both Abby and the entire RT news
organization. The threats included ambiguous "charges" for violating
the rules of the Committee floor, Abby's possible arrest and the
termination of her and the entire office's press credentials.

After a month of meetings and deliberation, the Senate Media Relations
office backed down and did not make good on any of their threats.

Solidarity Statement against the raids and grand jury

Solidarity Statement against the raids and grand jury | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

"On Wednesday July 25th, the FBI conducted a series of coordinated raids against activists in Portland, Olympia, and Seattle. They subpoenaed several people to a special federal grand jury, and seized computers, black clothing and anarchist literature. This comes after similar raids in Seattle in July and earlier raids of squats in Portland.

 

Though the FBI has said that the raids are part of a violent crime investigation, the truth is that the federal authorities are conducting a political witch-hunt against anarchists and others working toward a more just, free, and equal society. The warrants served specifically listed anarchist literature as evidence to be seized, pointing to the fact that the FBI and police are targeting this group of people because of their political ideas. Pure and simple, these raids and the grand jury hearings are being used to intimidate people whose politics oppose the state’s agenda. During a time of growing economic and ecological crises that are broadly affecting people across the world, it is an attempt to push back any movement towards creating a world that is humane, one that meets every person’s needs rather than serving only the interests of the rich."

Activist Post: CopBlock founder faces 21 years in prison on "wiretapping" charges for filming police

Monday, July 30, 2012 CopBlock founder faces 21 years in prison on "wiretapping" charges for filming police   Activist Post

According to court documents, Adam “Ademo” Mueller, journalist and co-host of nationally syndicated radio talk show Free Talk Live, has been indicted on three counts of felony wiretapping. The charges are a result of a vlog Mueller posted on CopBlock.org about an incident involving alleged police misconduct, which featured recorded interviews of on-duty public officials.

Mueller’s report focused on video recorded by a student’s cell phone at Manchester’s West High School, which depicted Officer Darren Murphy slamming a 17-year-old boy into a cafeteria table in October of 2011. Although public officials told the student to delete the video, it ended up in Adam Mueller’s hands instead. MORE: http://www.activistpost.com/2012/07/copblock-founder-faces-21-years-in.html

ACLU: DC protects citizen journalists from police

ACLU: DC protects citizen journalists from police | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

By Andrea Noble
The Washington Times

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland is pointing to a D.C. police department's recent order as a model for law enforcement agencies in the state that want to adopt clear policies dealing with private citizens' right to record police actions.

"We think it is a very strong effort to protect citizen journalists," Meredith Curtis, spokeswoman for the ACLU of Maryland, said of general orders put into effect last week by the Metropolitan Police Department. "They are definitely on the right track and could create a good model for other law enforcement agencies."

Top Priority: The Terror Within (OFFICIAL TRAILER 2012)

Published on Apr 15, 2012 by CitizensCommittee

Federal officer with the Department of Homeland Security discovers a national security breach related to the entry of 23 aliens from terrorist countries into the United States. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner, former head of the DEA Robert Bonner can't afford any more media scrutiny, since his incompetence was already exposed in the NASA 'Challenger' disaster. To avoid the scandal, the full might of the government is unleashed against Julia Davis, her family and witnesses. This retaliation reaches the unprecedented magnitude, including four unexplained deaths, Hollywood and the Mafia, false imprisonments and the use of helicopters and airplanes for warrantless surveillance. Amidst many shocking revelations, this documentary provides a new insight into the deaths of well-known Hollywood figures unwittingly dragged into this scandal. The truth is no longer a secret.
Release date: Summer 2012

The internal corruption is far worse than people know or care to understand. Federal Police Officers aren't safe from their own US Government when they uphold their OATH and duty. Our duty is to report fraud, waste & abuse whenever discovered or found but when you do that you are literally dead meat. All the so called Whistleblower protections are a lie and a scam on the American people. This is why our system is crumbling and imploding. There is no integrity left on the inside of Federal Government. Want to see a joke? Go to mspb.gov and read their public lies. Then read just about any federal government agency's Inspector General's webpages; it's a hoax and a faux system to have Americans believing the system is functioning with honor, integrity and truth. It's not. matter of fact it's down right murderous. For every federal whistleblower you know about there are perhaps hundreds or even thousands who do not survive. - Randy L. Dixon Rivera (Former Federal Police Officer & Whistleblower).

U.S. Admits Surveillance Violated Constitution At Least Once

U.S. Admits Surveillance Violated Constitution At Least Once | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

The head of the U.S. government’s vast spying apparatus has conceded that recent surveillance efforts on at least one occasion violated the Constitutional prohibitions on unlawful search and seizure.

 

The admission comes in a letter from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence declassifying statements that a top U.S. Senator wished to make public in order to call attention to the government’s 2008 expansion of its key surveillance law.

“On at least one occasion,” the intelligence shop has approved Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) to say, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court found that “minimization procedures” used by the government while it was collecting intelligence were “unreasonable under the Fourth Amendment.” Minimization refers to how long the government may retain the surveillance data it collects.  The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution is supposed to guarantee our rights against unreasonable searches.

Wyden does not specify how extensive this “unreasonable” surveillance was; when it occurred; or how many Americans were affected by it.

NDAA Indefinite Detention of American Citizens

Uploaded by gramrastag on Dec 19, 2011

▀█▀ █▀ █_█ ▀█▀ █▬█ BeKnown
http://www.facebook.com/TruthBeKnownRevolution

The detention sections of the NDAA begin by "affirm[ing]" that the authority of the President under the AUMF, a joint resolution passed in the immediate aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks, includes the power to detain, via the Armed Forces, any person "who was part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners," and anyone who commits a "belligerent act" against the U.S. or its coalition allies in aid of such enemy forces, under the law of war, "without trial, until the end of the hostilities authorized by the [AUMF]." The text authorizes trial by military tribunal, or "transfer to the custody or control of the person's country of origin," or transfer to "any other foreign country, or any other foreign entity."
Addressing previous conflict with the Obama Administration regarding the wording of the Senate text, the Senate-House compromise text, in sub-section 1021, also affirms that nothing in the Act "is intended to limit or expand the authority of the President or the scope of the Authorization for Use of Military Force." The final version of the bill also provides, in sub-section, that "Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States, or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States." As reflected in Senate debate over the bill, there is a great deal of controversy over the status of existing law. An amendment to the Act that would have replaced current text with a requirement for executive clarification of detention authorities was rejected by the senate

All persons arrested and detained according to the provisions of section 1021, including those detained on U.S. soil, whether detained indefinitely or not, are required to be held by the United States Armed Forces. The law affords the option to have U.S. citizens detained by the armed forces but this requirement does not extend to them, as with foreign persons. Lawful resident aliens may or may not be required to be detained by the Armed Forces, "on the basis of conduct taking place within the United States

Myth # 1: This bill does not codify indefinite detention:
The first provision — section (a) — explicitly "affirms that the authority of the President" under the AUMF "includes the authority for the Armed Forces of the United States to detain covered persons." ... It simply cannot be any clearer within the confines of the English language that this bill codifies the power of indefinite detention.

Myth #2: The bill does not expand the scope of the War on Terror as defined by the 2001 AUMF [Authorization to Use Military Force]:
Section (2) is a brand new addition. It allows the President to target not only those who helped perpetrate the 9/11 attacks or those who harbored them, but also: anyone who "substantially supports" such groups and/or "associated forces." Those are extremely vague terms ... (see what Law Professor Jonathan Hafetz told me in an interview last week about the dangers of those terms).

Myth #3: U.S. citizens are exempted from this new bill:
There are two separate indefinite military detention provisions in this bill. The first, Section 1021, ... contains a disclaimer regarding an intention to expand detention powers for U.S. citizens, but does so only for the powers vested by that specific section. More important, the exclusion appears to extend only to U.S. citizens "captured or arrested in the United States"[.] ...

But the next section, Section 1022, ... specifically deals with a smaller category of people ... [T]he definition of who it covers does not exclude U.S. citizens or include any requirement of foreignness.

"Top Priority: The Terror Within" explores issues that have sparked nationwide controversy such as the USA PATRIOT Act and illegal tactics improperly used against law-abiding Americans under the guise of "the war on terror". Julia Davis, a former federal officer with the Department of Homeland Security, discovered and reported a breach of national security at the largest and busiest land border crossing in the U.S. on 4th of July, 2004. When the DHS failed to act on her reports, she took her concerns to the FBI/JTTF.
