As people continue to decipher the thousands of US sensitive documents that were released by whistleblowing website WikiLeaks, what will the end result be? Many people believe it shows the government is doing a good job of protecting its citizens and doing the right thing. However, others are saying the documents are incredibly damaging to the US. Radio Host Alex Jones says it will take time to go over all of the documents but most of the information is not a big surprise.

Why no massive outrage for Toll Takers and Divorce Court?


Image stolen [from here]. I image search googled "Traffic Frustration" and the above image about Boston Massachusetts Logan Airport traffic came up as one of the search results.


Image stolen [from here]

Life and death, and simple questions have become more apparent to me. I’ve lived in the outback of Vermont and New Hampshire and realized that public corruption. and the US Police State, extends up there too, but with not with as many goons for the lesser populations. Some questions came up for me this past weekend.

I am working off a 5 story scissors lift and use a forklift that goes up 6 stories on another job. My life. and that of others, hangs in the balance with inches, awareness, unstable loads on pallets, and the condition of the equipment. A flat quickly developed on the scissors lift when I was using saws and other construction equipment up in the air. The lift became unstable and does not want to operate when it is “off-level”.

So, life’s little annoyances took on different meaning. I am not used to waiting 3 hours in traffic, and spending over one hour just to pay a toll.

There were literally thousands of people in the same line. The State I was in stole hours from each of those people in line for dollars in a toll. What I had to pay in tolls is what I spend on eating for an entire day, when living in the outback of Vermont and New Hampshire.

I am not saying whether I am in New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, Delaware, Maryland, or elsewhere, as I have gotten death threats after [this case] was fixed in Vermont Small Claims Court by an individual who alleges he is Greek organized crime. He, himself, isn’t Greek, he is probably Canadian and some sort of mentally ill, and just married into an unsuspecting family. The case could also have been fixed because I am [blacklisted] for having advocated Civilian Oversight of Police and Court Reform.

Back to my point.

I could not understand why there wasn’t outrage from everyone in line, just to pay tolls. An hour of our collective lives, stolen and wasted. How much productivity for work, and/or enjoyment of life was robbed by the state from all those people? Why aren’t each contacting the state, asking for the tolls to be taken out? A sideline of the Lawyer and Judge Mafia is Divorce Court and abuse you if you have children, for the length of their lives until they are adults and sometimes longer, for more, and more, Americans is the rule, not the exception. You take it day after day, with saying little to nothing to those responsible for changing it, so your silence must signify acceptance, right?

I still have a beard from having lived in the outback. I was pulled out of traffic by police in the City, making what they called a, “Random Stop”. Being annoyed, not scared, tells police I’m not a terrorist. I was pulled over twice in the outback, not cited there either. I am sick of my time and money being randomly stolen by the real terrorists as I believe 9-11 was an inside job.

Writing here, seems to be doing less, and less, I intend to appeal to the 30 second attention spans in higher quality videos and feature film in the not so distant future. Your silence signifies acceptance of the tyranny of the New World Order, if you’re angry write a letter and send it to those responsible, call, email, write your legislators, and repeat.

Letting Government Goons Write Their Own Search Warrants




Should Government be based on fear? Once Liberty is taken, it is not restored by the entity that has stolen it.

Forced injections, having our doors kicked in, forced detentions, rape, robbery, theft, torture, and murder all mandated for official use to make us free and safe?

Give thanks that you have a government, this good. British soldiers could write their own search warrant before the American Revolution. We found against this. Should we have worse now?

How Bizarre, A Barbara Bush Expelled Fetus in a Jar?

Video at bottom of post, scroll down

Barbara Bush blames housekeeper for fetus in jar

By David Edwards
Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010 -- 11:27 am


One of the Bushes needs to get their memory checked.

The former president wrote in his new book Decision Points that his mother, former First Lady Barbara Bush, had a miscarriage and showed him the fetus.

In an interview with CNN's Larry King that aired Monday, the former First Lady said that her son's memory may have "dimmed" because she never put her fetus in a jar.

"George discloses something very personal about you, which he says you gave him special permission to write about," noted King. "He wrote that when you once had a miscarriage, you showed him the fetus in the jar."

"Paula put it in the jar," Bush replied. "And I was shocked when she gave it to him to -- but, you know, memories dim a little bit."

Paula Rendon is the Bush family's longtime housekeeper.

"Were you shocked that he put it in the book?" King asked.

"No. He asked permission and I gave him permission. It's his book," Bush said.

Different people grieve in different ways, but Justin Frank, a psychoanalyst based in Washington D.C., told The Daily Beast's Casey Schwartz that saving the fetus is not a normal response.

"You don't save a fetus in a jar -- you just don't do that," Frank said. "I would consider that to be the behavior of an extremely depressed person. Probably also extremely angry... because I think she's saying -- essentially -- that she has had to suffer."

The Daily Telegraph observed that while the former president is staunchly pro-life, his mother does not necessarily hold that point of view.

"I hate abortions, but just could not make that choice for someone else," she once said.

Bush's son told NBC's Matt Lauer that the point of the story was not to show how he came to be pro-life.

"I thought it was very important for people to understand the relationship with my mom," the former president said. "There's no question that it affected me -- my philosophy -- we should respect life."

"The purpose of the story really wasn't to show the evolution of a pro-life point of view, it was really to show how my mom and I developed a relationship."

In the interview broadcast Monday, King pressed Bush on her stance on abortion.

"You had differing opinions, though, on pro-life, did you not?" King asked.

"I don't remember," the former first lady demurred.

Former President George H. W. Bush, who also appeared in the interview, interrupted. "Yes, they did," he admitted.

"Shh, George," she said.

This video is from CNN's Larry King Live, broadcast Nov. 22, 2010.

Police crackdown, US activists lose rights

The United States prides itself on the rights to free speech and protest. However, as more preemptive arrests of activists occur, are US citizens losing their rights? Over the weekend RT correspondent Kaelyn Forde and cameraman Jon Conway were arrested, trying to do their jobs. Author and activist David Swanson says there is a police crackdown on activists and protestors that violates our first amendment rights.

Power and the Tiny Acts of Rebellion

By Chris Hedges


AP/Jeff Widener

There is no hope left for achieving significant reform or restoring our democracy through established mechanisms of power. The electoral process has been hijacked by corporations. The judiciary has been corrupted and bought. The press shuts out the most important voices in the country and feeds us the banal and the absurd. Universities prostitute themselves for corporate dollars. Labor unions are marginal and ineffectual forces. The economy is in the hands of corporate swindlers and speculators. And the public, enchanted by electronic hallucinations, remains passive and supine. We have no tools left within the power structure in our fight to halt unchecked corporate pillage.

The liberal class, which Barack Obama represents, was never endowed with much vision or courage, but it did occasionally respond when pressured by popular democratic movements. This was how we got the New Deal, civil rights legislation and the array of consumer legislation pushed through by Ralph Nader and his allies in the Democratic Party. The complete surrendering of power, however, to corporate interests means that those of us who seek nonviolent yet profound change have no one within the power elite we can trust for support. The corporate coup has ossified the structures of power. It has obliterated all checks on corporate malfeasance. It has left us stripped of the tools of mass organization that once nudged the system forward toward justice.

Obama knows where power lies and serves these centers of power. The tragedy--if tragedy is the right word--is that Obama, after selling his soul to corporations, has been discarded. Corporate power doesn't need brand Obama anymore. They have found new brands in the tea party, Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck. Obama has been abandoned by those who once bundled contributions for him by the millions of dollars. Obama and the Democratic Party will, I expect, spend the next two years being even more obsequious to corporate power. Obama clearly loves the pomp and privilege of statecraft that much. But I am not sure it will work.

Reformers on the outside, while they remain militant and faithful to issues of justice, nevertheless depend on the liberal establishment to respond to public pressure. If these reformers cannot pressure the liberal class and the power elite to evoke real change, they become ineffectual. Our fate is intimately tied to the liberals who have betrayed us. We speak in the language of policies and issues. We will find it harder and harder, given our impotence, to compete with the impassioned calls for new glory, revenge and moral purity that resonate with a public beset by foreclosures, long-term unemployment, bankruptcies and a medical system that abandons them. Once any political system ossifies, once all mechanisms for reform close, the lunatic fringe of a society, as I saw in Yugoslavia, rises out of the moral swamp to take control. The reformers, however well meaning and honest, finally have nothing to offer. They are disarmed.

We have reached a point where stunted and deformed individuals, whose rapacious greed fuels the plunge of tens of millions of Americans into abject poverty and misery, determine the moral fiber of the nation. It is no more morally justifiable to kill someone for profit than it is to kill that person for religious fanaticism. And yet, from health companies to the oil and natural gas industry to private weapons contractors, individual death and the wholesale death of the ecosystem have become acceptable corporate business. The mounting human misery in the United States, which could lead to the sporadic bursts of anger we have seen on the streets of France, will be met with severe repression from the security and surveillance state, which always accompanies the rise of the corporate state. The one method left open by which we can respond--massive street protests, the destruction of corporate property and violence--will become the excuse to impose total tyranny. The intrusive pat-downs at airports may soon become a fond memory of what it was like when we still had a little freedom left.

All reform movements, from the battle for universal health care to the struggle for alternative energy and sane environmental controls to financial regulation to an end to our permanent war economy, have run into this new, terrifying configuration of power. They have confronted an awful truth. We do not count. And they have been helpless to respond as those who are most skilled in the manipulation of hate lead a confused populace to call for their own enslavement.

Dr. Margaret Flowers, a pediatrician from Maryland who volunteers for Physicians for a National Health Program, knows what it is like to challenge the corporate leviathan. She was blacklisted by the corporate media. She was locked out of the debate on health care reform by the Democratic Party and liberal organizations such as MoveOn. She was abandoned by those in Congress who had once backed calls for a rational health care policy. And when she and seven other activists demanded that the argument for universal health care be considered at the hearings held by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, they were forcibly removed from the hearing room.

"The reform process exposed how broken our system is," Flowers said when we spoke a few days ago. "The health reform debate was never an actual debate. Those in power were very reluctant to have single-payer advocates testify or come to the table. They would not seriously consider our proposal because it was based on evidence of what works. And they did not want this evidence placed before the public. They needed the reform to be based on what they thought was politically feasible and acceptable to the industries that fund their campaigns."

"There was nobody in the House or the Senate who held fast on universal health care," she lamented. "Sen. [Bernie] Sanders from Vermont introduced a single-payer bill, S 703. He introduced an amendment that would have substituted S 703 for what the Senate was putting together. We had to push pretty hard to get that to the Senate floor, but in the end he was forced by the leadership to withdraw it. He was our strongest person. In the House we saw Chairman John Conyers, who is the lead sponsor for the House single-payer bill, give up pushing for single-payer very early in the process in 2009. Dennis Kucinich pushed to get an amendment that would help give states the ability to pass single-payer. He was not successful in getting that kept in the final House bill. He held out for the longest, but in the end he caved."

"You can't effect change from the inside," she has concluded. "We have a huge imbalance of power. Until we have a shift in power we won't get effective change in any area, whether financial, climate, you name it. With the wealth inequalities, with the road we are headed down, we face serious problems. Those who work and advocate for social and economic justice have to now join together. We have to be independent of political parties and the major funders. The revolution will not be funded. This is very true."

"Those who are working for effective change are not going to get foundation dollars," she stated. "Once a foundation or a wealthy individual agrees to give money they control how that money is used. You have to report to them how you spend that money. They control what you can and cannot do. Robert Wood Johnson [the foundation], for example, funds many public health departments. They fund groups that advocate for health care reform, but those groups are not allowed to pursue or talk about single-payer. Robert Wood Johnson only supports work that is done to create what they call public/private partnership. And we know this is totally ineffective. We tried this before. It is allowing private insurers to exist but developing programs to fill the gaps. Robert Wood Johnson actually works against a single-payer health care system. The Health Care for America Now coalition was another example. It only supported what the Democrats supported. There are a lot of activist groups controlled by the Democratic Party, including Families USA and MoveOn. MoveOn is a very good example. If you look at polls of Democrats on single-payer, about 80 percent support it. But at MoveOn meetings, which is made up mostly of Democrats, when people raised the idea of working for single-payer they were told by MoveOn leaders that the organization was not doing that. And this took place while the Democrats were busy selling out women's rights, immigrant rights to health care and abandoning the public option. Yet all these groups continued to work for the bill. They argued, in the end, that the health care bill had to be supported because it was not really about health care. It was about the viability of President Obama and the Democratic Party. This is why, in the end, we had to pass it."

"The Democrats and the Republicans give the illusion that there are differences between them," said Dr. Flowers. "This keeps the public divided. It weakens opposition. We fight over whether a Democrat will get elected or a Republican will get elected. We vote for the lesser evil, but meanwhile the policies the two parties enact are not significantly different. There were no Democrats willing to hold the line on single-payer. Not one. I don't see this changing until we radically shift the balance of power by creating a larger and broader social movement."

The corporate control of every aspect of American life is mirrored in the corporate control of health care. And there are no barriers to prevent corporate domination of every sector of our lives.

"We are at a crisis," Flowers said. "Health care providers, particularly those in primary care, are finding it very difficult to sustain an independent practice. We are seeing greater and greater corporatization of our health care. Practices are being taken over by these large corporations. You have absolutely no voice when it comes to dealing with the insurance company. They tell you what your reimbursements will be. They make it incredibly difficult and complex to get reimbursed. The rules are arbitrary and change frequently."

"This new legislation [passed earlier this year] does not change any of that," she said. "It does not make it easier for doctors. It adds more administrative complexity. We are going to continue to have a shortage of doctors. As the new law rolls out they are giving waivers as the provisions kick in because corporations like McDonald's say they can't comply. Insurance companies such as WellPoint, UnitedHealth Group, Aetna, Cigna and Humana that were mandated to sell new policies to children with pre-existing conditions announced they were not going to do it. They said they were going to stop selling new policies to children. So they got waivers from the Obama administration allowing them to charge higher premiums. Health care costs are going to rise faster. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services estimated that after the legislation passed, our health care costs would rise more steeply than if we had done nothing. The Census Bureau reports that the number of uninsured in the U.S. jumped 10 percent to 51 million people in 2009. About 5.8 million were able to go on public programs, but a third of our population under the age of 65 was uninsured for some portion of 2009. The National Health Insurance Survey estimates that we now have 58 or 59 million uninsured. And the trend is toward underinsurance. These faulty insurance products leave people financially vulnerable if they have a serious accident or illness. They also have financial barriers to care. Co-pays and deductibles cause people to delay or avoid getting the care they need. And all these trends will worsen."

In Manuel de Lope's novel "The Wrong Blood," set during the first rumblings that led to the Spanish Civil War, he writes "... nobody knew this at the time and those who had premonitions wouldn't go so far as to believe them, because fear rejects what intuition accepts."

But the signs are now so palpable that even fear is not working. Our worst premonitions are becoming reality. Our intuition has proved correct. We are reaching the breaking point. An explosion, unless we halt the increased pressure, seems inevitable. And what is left for those of us who cannot embrace the contaminants of violence? If the system shuts us out how can we influence it through nonviolent mechanisms of popular protest? How can we restore a civil society? How can we battle back against those who will mobilize hatred to cement into place an American fascism?

I do not know if we can win this battle. I suspect we cannot. But I do know that if we stop resisting, if we stop rebelling, something fundamental will die within us. As the corporate vise tightens, as the vast corporate system begins to break down with fossil fuel decline, extreme climate change and the expansion of global poverty, even mundane and ordinary acts to assert our common humanity and justice will be condemned as subversive.

It is time to think of resistance in a new way, something that is no longer carried out to reform a system but as an end in itself. African-Americans understood this during the long night of slavery. German opposition leaders understood it under the Nazis. Dissidents in the former Soviet Union knew this during the nightmare of communism. Resistance in these closed systems was local and often solitary. It was done with the understanding that evil must always be defied. The tiny acts of rebellion--day after day, month after month, year after year and decade after decade--exposed to everyone who witnessed them the heartlessness, cruelty and inhumanity of the oppressor. They were acts of truth and beauty. We must take to the street. We must jam as many wrenches into the corporate system as we can. We must not make it easy for them. But we also must no longer live in self-delusion. This is a battle that will outlive us. And if we fight, even with this tragic vision, we will lead lives worth living and keep alive another way of being.

U.S. military widens probe of platoon in Afghanistan 23 Nov 2010 A military probe of U.S. Army troops accused of terrorizing Afghan civilians has turned to questions of supervision by their commanding officers, testimony in the case against one soldier revealed on Monday. The disclosure came during the latest hearing of evidence in the investigation of what military prosecutors describe as an infantry platoon run amok earlier this year in the Afghan province of Kandahar. The defendant in Monday's Article 32 proceeding was Army Specialist Michael Wagnon, the fourth of five soldiers accused of premeditated murder of unarmed Afghan villagers [aka war crimes], killings allegedly staged to appear as combat casualties.

Hypothetically, What if 9-11 was an Inside Job?


Image [found here]

If 9-11 was an inside job, that alone would make real, a lot of suspicions many of us have. By the way, this author does believe it was an inside job, just based on the circumstantial evidence leading up to 9-11. On 9-10-2001 the crap had finally hit the fan on the trillions of tax dollars unaccounted for by the Pentagon. Rumsfeld, Cheney, and others could have faced prosecution and prison. Loading 3 buildings with explosives and hatching a plot would have been a lot better than having to explain looting America, right?

If you blog critical of a State's Governor, should you be put on a security list which doesn't even list Al Qaeda suspects or supposed "terrorists"? Does the absence of such names of "terrorists" on the Connecticut State Police threat assessment, target, and arrest on sight secret Enemies List, mean that 9-11 was just a scam and there are no real terrorist threats from pre-9-11, just victims of US wars in war zones?

Ken Krayeske was the Green Party Campaign Manager in Connecticut in 2007. He was critical of Connecticut Governor M. Jodi Rell in his blogs. Rell staffers ran a google search. Those critical of Rell, such as Steven G. Erickson, Krayeske, and Chris Kennedy topped the arrest on sight list. Pictures were distributed at roll call for Connecticut State Police, Hartford Police Department, other departments, and a special operations secret police security and investigations detail.

Secret Police memos obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, scroll as a pdf in video. Police aren't interested in members of the KKK, skinheads, hate groups, actual criminals, and others. They're after journalists and bloggers critical of government. The police are actively out to false arrest anyone on the list. With false arrests sometimes comes prison. So political prisoners are being held in the US. There is no mention of terrorists, mainly Steven G. Erickson, Ken Krayeske, Chris Kennedy, and those who are journalists, bloggers, or who just wrote letters critical of public corruption and police misconduct and brutality in the State of Connecticut.

US President Richard M. Nixon had an enemies list for dealing with political rivals and those with "Big Mouths". Connecticut Governor M. Jodi Rell seems to think the same way. Target citizens for political reasons and see to it that they are ruined, arrested, and left penniless facing prison. More information:

What was Donald Rumsfeld really pulling, September 10, 2001? Is what happened on September 11, 2001, the biggest diversion of attention from the most successful Enron style rip off, fraud, and hoodwink of the American people? Was the scandal diverted with one of the biggest black-ops in history?

NJ Legislators take on Big Brother

Should the TSA at airports be the new Nazi Germany? Should citizens be so violated by their own government, just to fly on an airplane. Has the US Government gone too far on this issue?

Video and post [click here]. Is the US Government, not caring about citizens' health? Radiation is bad. Pat downs constitute sexual assault. When is enough, enough?


Image [found here]

If you don't stand up on important issues like this, expect Nazi style detention camps and the "Policing" and "Courts of Law" to go with Martial Law style government.

How far down the path of evil does the US Government have to go before more of you out there get it?

The Joys of Independent Film Production


Image [found here]

I recently worked on a Hollywood type, full movie production in Massachusetts. Cameras were on trolleys, there was full accompaniment, and I got to yell, “Rolling, last looks, cut, quiet on the set,” etc. Back to my point …

We live in strange times.

Acquiring skills that can be used for work and networking anywhere in the US, and even outside the US, is a good thing. I would rather write, be behind the camera, help edit, get financing, and help manage an Independent Film Production. But, if I can work as a carpenter helping build sets, and get paid, I’ll do that. There are vast amounts of knowledge that can be gained by just signing on to a gig and work as a, “Production Assistant”. It doesn’t hurt, either, being listed in the credits …

I’m acquiring new skills, now, in case, in the one in ten, plus or minus, probability that I live, semi-retire, and work outside the US. One, can't lose acquiring a greater skill set.

But, until the possibility of leaving or staying in the US comes, I will continue making connections in the Northern outback of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Upstate New York for lodging, the growing of organic food, learning more about farming, and in just hanging out in scenic locals. I also have made some interesting connection in California, New York City, Boston, other parts of the US, and world regarding interest in somehow collaborating in independent film, writing and performing local plays, and in setting up a small independent news network based on youtube type short videos … and longer ones.

There is the possibility that I will end up in Washington, DC, New York City, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Boston, Providence, or some other local to live, temporarily or longer, and/or to work with film.

Why am I writing this? Well, some of you I talk to. I am just making the statement that I’m serious, and for others, if you’re interested, contact me.

Officials, Police, Judges not running or retiring out of trouble

Private citizens without political connections don't have the option of ending their employment to avoid prosecution, civil fines, and liabilities for their crimes. This, is unlike the world of the insiders in the US Police State. Martha Stewart may, or may not, have committed a crime, look what happened to her. Officials, police, and judges can do 10,000 times worse, daily, and receive no jail time, except when the official breaks ranks or is way too outrageous.


Connecticut Governor with a buzz on? [click here for post to go with pic]

Connecticut Governor M. Jodi Rell had to be aware of the organized crime/politician conspiracy to take away as many children as possible to adopt them out and confine them. Rell's predecessor, John G. Rowland, spent a year in prison for the tip of the iceberg regarding the real crimes he committed. Rell probably is aware of felonies committed by her staff regarding election rigging and putting citizens on an "Enemies List" to be arrested on sight by the Connecticut State Police. [That story]

Rowland took bribes from Organized Crime figures. States get federal dollars to process citizens in courts, to take away kids, to confine citizens, to destroy small businesses, and to ruin lives. Organized Crime got federal tax dollars to build, run, and supply "Kiddie Max" prisons for children and other facilities. They probably still do. Corporate organized figures have some of the same type of sweetheart deals with states and the federal government.

An Ellington, Connecticut, Police Officer came upon a scene where two sisters were arguing at a bar. The cop brought one of the sisters to a hotel room, for "her protection". She woke up in just her sock realizing that the officer had undressed her and had sex with her without her permission. That is rape in the real world. It wasn't a question on whether the officer should be prosecuted for rape, the question was whether, or not, he should remain a police officer. What!!!???

A substitute teacher, was supplied with a laptop with viruses. Porn popped up in class. She faces life in prison for this "offense". She miscarried her baby and her life has been ruined. [That case].

Courts are rigged, police guard the state, not us, and we aren't getting representation for our taxation. Corporations are getting represented for our taxation. Much of it is organized crime and monopoly goon banksters.

I recently returned a call to the Meriden, Connecticut, FBI. An agent left his cell phone number. I believe I am more likely to be struck by lightning, or be tortured in a US detention camp, than I am to see any honest investigation of the Connecticut public corruption that I reported, and reported, such as in this [open letter].

[click here] for the text of my letter sent to former Connecticut Governor John G. Rowland meant to arrive for his very first day of prison. The Connecticut address listed with it, is no longer in use. I tell the former Connecticut Governor to go "F" himself in that letter. Some insiders in the judicial branch in Connecticut said Rowland could have gone on to be President if he hadn't gotten in a pissing contest with Judges. Rowland seemed to state he was in charge of the state, not the Black Robed Mafia of Judges. The Judges showed him who really was in charge when Rowland faced Federal prosecution, then prison.

Citizens are going to get treated worse, and worse, more is going to be officially stolen, and government is going to continue to spend, and spend, grow and grow, and hire more, and more government workers. There needs to be civilian oversight, there needs to be law enforcement to prosecute official crimes, and these criminals, once convicted need to see the inside of jails cells in big numbers. Then, we will start to see the "Change" we the people so desire.

The below found:

http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Misprision+of+felony

Definition: Misprison

The failure to perform a public duty.

Misprision is a versatile word that can denote a number of offenses. It can refer to the improper performance of an official duty. In Arkansas, for example, rule 60 of the Arkansas Rules of Civil Procedure provides that a judgment, decree, or order may be vacated or modified "for misprisions of the clerk." In this sense misprision refers to neglect, mistake, or subterfuge on the part of the court clerk who performed the paperwork for the judgment, decree, or order.

Misprision also can refer to seditious or rebellious conduct against the government or the courts. This is an archaic usage of the word. Organized rebellion against the government is now uniformly referred to as Sedition or insurrection.

The most familiar and popular use of the term misprision describes the failure to report a crime. In England, beginning in the thirteenth century, the failure to report a crime became itself a crime. According to tradition, it was a citizen's duty to "raise the hue and cry" by reporting crimes, especially felonies, to law enforcement authorities (Branzburg v. Hayes, 408 U.S. 665, 92 S. Ct. 2646, 33 L. Ed. 2d 626 [1972], quoting william blackstone).

The crime of misprision still exists in England, but it has never been fully embraced in the United States. The first Congress passed a misprision of felony statute in 1789. The statute holds, "Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony … conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States" is guilty of misprision of felony and can be punished with up to three years in prison.

Under the federal statute, the prosecution must prove the following elements to obtain a misprision of felony conviction: (1) another person actually committed a felony; (2) the defendant knew that the felony was committed; (3) the defendant did not notify any law enforcement or judicial officer; and (4) the defendant took affirmative steps to conceal the felony. Precisely what constitutes active concealment is a Question of Fact that depends on the circumstances of the case. Lying to a police officer satisfies the requirement, but beyond that generally accepted rule, little is certain about the definition of active concealment.

Almost every state has rejected the crime of misprision of felony. Thus, persons are under no duty to report a crime. One policy reason for rejecting misprision is that the crime is vague and difficult to apply to real situations. Another reason is that the crime is seen as an unacceptable encroachment on civil freedom. In 1822 the U.S. Supreme Court cautioned against misuse of the misprision of felony statute, stating, "It may be the duty of a citizen to … proclaim every offense which comes to his knowledge; but the law which would punish him in every case, for not performing this duty, is too harsh" (Marbury v. Brooks, 20 U.S. [7 Wheat.] 556, 5 L. Ed. 522).

The Supreme Court has not completely abandoned the duty to report criminal activity. In Roberts v. United States, 445 U.S. 552, 100 S. Ct. 1358, 63 L. Ed. 2d 622 (1980), the High Court held that a court can increase a criminal defendant's sentence if the defendant refuses to cooperate with government officials investigating a related crime. Also, a journalist who has knowledge of a crime may be compelled to reveal the source of that knowledge (Branzburg v. Hayes).

The federal misprision of felony statute remains on the books, but the crime rarely has been prosecuted. On the state level, most states have either abolished or refused to enact misprision of felony laws. South Carolina is the only state that has prosecuted the misprision of a felony.

In State v. Carson, 262 S.E.2d 918, 274 S.C. 316 (1980), Isaac E. Carson, the Eyewitness to a murder, refused to give law enforcement authorities information regarding the murder because he feared for his life if he cooperated with authorities. Carson was prosecuted and convicted of misprision of felony and sentenced to three years in prison.

The prosecution of Carson was based on the Common Law. South Carolina did not have a misprision of felony statute. Instead the prosecution relied on title 14, chapter 1, section 50, of the Code of Laws of South Carolina. Under this statute the common law of England continues in effect in South Carolina. On appeal by Carson, the Supreme Court of South Carolina affirmed the conviction. According to the court, the prosecution was valid because misprision of felony was a crime at common law in England and because the South Carolina legislature had not taken steps to repeal the common-law crime of misprision of felony.

The crime of misprision of felony is similar to the crime of acting as an Accessory after the fact because both crimes involve some affirmative act to conceal a crime. Two basic differences are that the crime of misprision is committed even if the defendant does not give aid to the criminal and misprision is committed only if the underlying crime is completed.

America's failure in Iraq


Image [found here]

The American taxpayers were lied into at least two wars of illegal occupation. Torture is spouted as "great" by US authorities. When will the insanity end?

With the continuation of the wars we were lied into, Afghanistan and Iraq, possibly now in Pakistan and Yemen, we see how poorly run the US really is. Offshore banksters are profiting from war. They steal our money, and then charge us high interest to pay back the money that has been stolen from us to begin with. You're being held up by armed gunmen, daily, for your pay, for your future, and for future generations. The US is under armed occupation, the courts, policing, and government is currently crap.

End the Fed.

The United States second invasion of Fallujah was marred with reports that US troops used weapons with depleted uranium. 6 years later the toxicity levels are still affecting people in the area and in many cases are killing them. Michael M. O'Brien an author and former Bush administration official, believes the entire reconstruction in Iraq has been an entire sham because there was a lack of transition from American to Iraqi forces.

Obama’s Long Day on the Trail, Cowboy Lube


Photo found in [this thread]

Barack Obama, I can't see this guy having what it takes to manage a McDonald's fast food restaurant.

How much is the puppet Obama selling America to China and India for? Who are the real puppeteers pulling Obama's strings? Are they offshore corporate banksters, banking on the downfall of America for further windfalls? The Federal Reserve, a private corporate bank, and other international organized crime banks, make more money loaning money to crashed economies and for wars. It is the interest on the loans that enslave us. They steal from us, then charges us high interest to pay back the money that THEY stole from us.

Why isn't there a national, border to border, sit down strike until we throw off the yoke of slavery, and quit being raped and ripped off daily by our own, supposedly ours, US Government?

End the Fed!

As President Obama embarks on his 10 day trip to Asia - his longest trip outside the US since he took office, he focused on job creation and an economic partnership that he believes will help America. Obama announced a $10 billion deal that will reportedly bring around 50,000 jobs to the United States. President Obama talked about India's strategic importance in the ongoing war on terror.

Political Activist Guided Tour, YouTube Style


Christopher Walken as a platinum blond Max Zorin in 1985’s a [View to a Kill]
[photo source]


Duran duran:view to kill [click here for music video on youtube]


I watched the below documentary. I don't know much about the reputation of the producers. Many well known celebrities in the political activist community make appearances. I found the "V" for Vendetta skit, with a very bad Christopher Walken impression, to be the worst part of the series of videos. But, it wasn't so bad that I stopped watching. The first 15 minute video should transition to another 9 parts, if you click "play" on the one below. I did watch all 10 parts in 3 sittings. Most of the subjects covered, are subjects that I care about, and the producer's opinions are close to my own, almost across the board.

I'm angry after watching the videos. How did we the people allow our government to get as bad as it has [become]? Why are we slaves to organized criminals running the major banks and some corporations? [I'm angry at how the system has left me, personally]. I have found nothing in the US Government, Policing, and in US Courts which acts as advertised. Let's make some changes.

If you want to be entertained as you are informed I recommend watching the 10 part series of part 1 in a series. Some parts are cheesy, but I can't think of any other video which does a better job of getting some key points across, using a similar style.

Torture Inc.: 'US can't lecture world on human rights'


Text with video:
RussiaToday | November 06, 2010

The U.S. has for the first time ever faced unprecedented public scrutiny over its human rights record at the United Nations Human Rights Council. The U.S.delegation received strong criticism over human rights violations, including racial profiling, use of the death penalty and abuse allegations overseas. Council members in Geneva called for the closure of Guantanamo Bay prison and further investigation into alleged torture by US troops abroad. American representatives defended their nation's human rights record, but stressed they were not satisfied with the status quo.
