Banana Republic: One System of Justice for the Powerful (Like Clinton)
… and Another For Everyone Else

Clinton will have to face justiceFBI Director Comey’s announcement that he doesn’t think Hillary Clinton should be prosecuted for sharing government documents on her private, unsecured email server is very troubling … Indeed, there are two systems of justice in America … one for the fatcats … and one for everyone else.

After all, the government protects criminal wrongdoing by prosecuting whistleblowers. The Obama administration has sentenced whistleblowers to dozens of times the jail time of all other presidents COMBINED). And the government has framed whistleblowers with false evidence. And yet the government goes to great lengths to protect the elites against charges of criminal wrongdoing. More…

Foreclosure Fraud Is Supposed to Be a Thing of the Past, But It Happens Every Day

Foreclosure Fraud Is Supposed to Be a Thing of the Past, But It Happens Every Day

foreclosure fraud still happeningEVERY DAY IN AMERICA, people continue to be kicked out of their homes based on false documents. The settlements over allegations of robosigning, faulty paperwork, and illegal mortgage servicing didn’t end the misconduct. And law enforcement, along with most judges and politicians, have looked away in the mistaken belief that they wrapped up a scandal that just goes on and on.

When the Justice Department and state attorneys general finished their press conferences lauding big headline settlement penalties (numbers that shrink upon inspection), they neglected the ongoing chaos in our courts. People have been tied up in foreclosure nightmares for nearly a decade, with the same kinds of false documents used to grease the evictions. More…

We the Prisoners’: The Demise of the Fourth Amendment

We the Prisoners’: The Demise of the Fourth Amendment

prisoner and guardsIn a carceral state—a.k.a. a prison state or a police state—there is no Fourth Amendment to protect you from the overreaches, abuses, searches and probing eyes of government overlords.

In a carceral state, there is no difference between the treatment meted out to a law-abiding citizen and a convicted felon: both are equally suspect and treated as criminals, without any of the special rights and privileges reserved for the governing elite.

In a carceral state, there are only two kinds of people: the prisoners and the prison guards. More…

so why does our government say we are in Syria?In addition to the eyebrow-raising cabal of Eitam, Murdoch, Cheney, and Rothschild, Genie Oil and Gas appointed new members to its Strategic Advisory Board last September, including:

Dr. Lawrence Summers, 71st Secretary of the Treasury under President Clinton and Director of the National Economic Council under Pres. Obama; former Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu, who is credited with helping pass the U.S.-Israel Energy Cooperation Bill while she chaired the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources; former governor of New Mexico, Bill Richardson, who became an energy insider after serving as the Clinton administration’s Energy Secretary; and former Director of Central Intelligence, R. James Woolsey, who co-founded the U.S. Energy Security Council. More…

FCC’s Net neutrality rules win big in appeals court

FCC’s Net neutrality rules win big in appeals court
by Marguerite Reardon
Posted June 16, 2016

Net neutrality works for peopleThe Federal Communications Commission has won a major victory in its decade-long battle to keep the internet open. In a ruling issued Tuesday, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld the rules the agency imposed in February 2015.

The decision confirms the FCC’s contention that it has the authority to place broadband providers under some of the same strict regulations that have governed telephone networks for more than 80 years. The appeals court ruling could be the last word in a high-stakes argument over the business side of the internet, but the broadband and wireless industries will likely look for cracks in the decision that they may use in an appeal to the US Supreme Court.

How the IRS Used Civil Asset Forfeiture to Ruin the Lives of Two Connecticut Bakers

How the IRS Used Civil Asset Forfeiture to Ruin the Lives of Two Connecticut Bakers

civil asset forfeiture - guilty until proven innocentIt’s been a while since I’ve reported on the lawless and barbaric practice of civil asset forfeiture. However, just because it hasn’t been a focus doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. Indeed, it appears the same federal agencies that couldn’t find a bank executive they didn’t want to coddle, take particular pleasure in harassing and abusing average Americans generally, and small businesspeople in particular.

Once the government seizes property, it’s difficult to get back. Unlike in criminal trials, where suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty, property owners must often prove their innocence in civil forfeiture cases. More…

Amid a Growing Movement to Close Rikers, One Prisoner Approaches Six Years Without Trial

Amid a Growing Movement to Close Rikers, One Prisoner Approaches Six Years Without Trial

in prison 6 years awaiting trialIn October 2010, Anna’s son Jairo Pastoressa was arrested for stabbing and killing a young man during a dispute. He was charged with murder and denied bail and has been sitting in jail for 67 months, waiting for a trial that keeps being postponed. Eighty-five percent of Rikers’s nearly 10,000 detainees have not yet been tried. Although many are released within a week, some remain in the jail for years as their cases drag through New York’s chronically slow court system.

For years he was put on medication that turned him into “a zombie.” He was sexually assaulted by female guards and often attacked by other inmates. He’s half white and half Afro-Brazilian, and in a violent environment like Rikers, where turf affiliation often falls along racial lines, his ethnic background makes him even more vulnerable. More…

focus on character over reputation

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is who you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.

John Wooden

Alternative media is being censored

What’s happening here is the censorship of information that threatens various corporate and political interests. This information gained the attention of the masses simply because it was presented in a credible way that often couldn’t be countered. Julian Assange is a great example, as he has been ‘scooped’ up by ‘the powers that be,’ not because he threatens national security interests, but because for more than a decade he’s been exposing the lies, deceit and corruption that plague geopolitics.
