13-11-14 Poland/US: Request for closed door review of "black hole" prison failed.

The worldwide system of US "black hole" prisons is the hallmark of dictatorial, medieval regime. 
Patience in Europe for such conduct is running shorter and shorter.

13-11-14 US: Left-right-and-center converge - Resistance writers escalate their terms - police state, criminal tyrannical government

The previous example, from Judicial Watch founder, calling on Obama to come out with his hands up, was an example from the right.  
Here is an example from the left.
No more Police State? with a question mark, no more discussion of "violations of the US Constitution"... Instead, Resistance writers on all sides call government actions criminal, acknowledge the tyrannical nature of the current US regime...

13-11-14 US: Warren for Prez! (or anything but a 2nd Clinton!)

I spoke with Warren once, when she was Chair of the TARP Board, and I had a trove of incriminating records on BofA and Brian Moynihan.  I was disappointed by the failure of the TARP Board, Elizabeth Warren, Neil Barofsky to take any action then.
Now, in view of the barren field of politicians, Warren looks like the only credible politician in DC!

13-11-14 US: Speaking the unspeakable truth...

The US military is now deployed in the territorial US and routinely conducts drills of attacks on major civilian areas.
The Posse Comitatus Act was delegated to oblivion.
But nobody is daring to say the truth - the military has become a critical part of the forces of oppression.

Stop Thanking the Troops for Me: No, They Don’t Protect Our Freedoms!”

Why is pro sports constantly jamming military fervor down our throats? Their claims are wrong in more ways than one.

The city plans to forcibly segregate them in the same year it celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement.

What's the quickest, easiest -- if least effective -- way to deal with your downtown's unsightly problem of homelessness? Making it somebody else's problem.

Because the city government in Columbia, S.C., apparently cribs its planning for homeless outreach fromold episodes of "South Park," it has decided to get its big push broom out of the garage and just sweep the homeless out of the city center.

The Columbia City Council unanimously approved the plan, creating special police patrols that would enforce "quality of life" laws involving loitering, public urination and other crimes not necessarily restricted to the homeless population. Those officers would then offer the homeless a choice: Go to jail for their homelessness or be shuffled to a 240-bed, 24-hour shelter on the outskirts of town, which they wouldn't be allowed to easily leave.


FEMA Camps: City to Exile the Homeless; It’s not a Conspiracy Theory Anymore


Under the radar from the prying eyes of the public, South Carolina made it legal to get rid of their homeless problem. The people were given a choice, FEMA Camps or jail. The irony of it all was this happened right at the 50th Anniversary of Civil Liberties in August. The bad part is different cities from Boston to New York are shipping off their homeless, and no one cares. Is this coming to a town near you?
In August the city of Colombia, South Carolina, had a problem. A festival honoring the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement was coming to town.  They couldn’t be seen with all the homeless when guests arrived from all parts of the United States. So the city council held a vote and made homelessness a crime.
