Stop the 'Stop Online Piracy Act' (SOPA)

Given the threat to free speech, information and the internet as we know it today, I'm submitting this EFF update regarding the 'Stop Online Piracy Act' or SOPA - if you oppose this bill and haven't called your representatives yet, please do. See this EFF page for contact info and talking points: https://wfc2.wiredforchange.com/o/9042/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=8173 - loose nuke:

Blacklist Bills Ripe for Abuse, Part I: "Market-Based" Systems by Parker Higgins

Proponents of the misguided Internet blacklist legislation — the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) — downplay the idea that the overbroad bills could be used for censorship. But one only needs to look at the way existing copyright laws have been abused to know there’s serious cause for concern.

From shocking examples of government censorship without due process through domain name seizure, as we've seen with both Rojadirecta and now with the yearlong saga of Dajaz1.org (which we address in the second post in this series), to bogus DMCA takedowns and actual litigation, the message is clear: the government and corporations have no problem abusing legal process to threaten or shut down legitimate speech.

Obama to sign indefinite detention bill into law by Glenn Greenwald

In one of the least surprising developments imaginable, President Obama – after spending months threatening to veto the Levin/McCain detention bill – yesterday announced that he would instead sign it into law (this is the same individual, of course, who unequivocally vowed when seeking the Democratic nomination to support a filibuster of “any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecom[s],” only to turn around – once he had the nomination secure — and not only vote against such a filibuster, but to vote in favor of the underlying bill itself, so this is perfectly consistent with his past conduct). As a result, the final version of the Levin/McCain bill will be enshrined as law this week as part of the the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). I wrote about the primary provisions and implications of this bill last week, and won’t repeat those points here.

The ACLU said last night that the bill contains “harmful provisions that some legislators have said could authorize the U.S. military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians, including American citizens, anywhere in the world” and added: “if President Obama signs this bill, it will damage his legacy.” Human Rights Watch said that Obama’s decision “does enormous damage to the rule of law both in the US and abroad” and that “President Obama will go down in history as the president who enshrined indefinite detention without trial in US law.”

Thomas Kean: “aftershocks” from planes caused collapse of WTC Building 7

On September 13th, 2011, Thomas Kean, Chair of the 9/11 Commission and Former Governor of N.J., gave a lecture for the The Drew Forum, a series of public lectures at Drew University located in Madison, New jersey. We Are Change was tipped off to the event by http://www.youtube.com/FreedumbFighter28 and attended. After the lecture, a question and answer session was opened up to the audience. When We Are Change asked Thomas Kean to address the collapse of WTC Building 7, which was not hit by a plane, and was not mentioned once in the 9/11 Commission Report, his answer was simply shocking.

Occupy Endgame: law enforcement arrests 1%’s War & economic criminals

*hyperlinks and video live at source* http://www.examiner.com/nonpartisan-in-national/occupy-endgame-law-enforcement-arrests-1-s-war-economic-criminals

The brilliant 2-minute video from Waiting for the Storm below is a message for police, sheriff, and military law enforcement to arrest US political, economic, and corporate “leadership” who have committed obvious crimes.

Occupy’s endgame, in retrospect, will be obvious: after a period of “emperor has no clothes” expository communication from independent Internet media to the 99% and citizen engagement with those facts, those with arrest authority exercised it to remove criminal leadership from power.

The first criminal arrests will be for War Crimes and financial fraud. The most notable will be “leadership” of both US political parties and from the largest financial institutions involved in mortgage and “investment” frauds.

In Black and White

Watch at mark ~:10 right face, the even white ejections along one floor about one third up into the damaged area..

This cannot be smoke because what was leaving there just prior was dark. This is lighter, and evenly forced out across the face.

This cannot be naturally produced concrete pulverization because there is nothing from above doing the crushing. The building has not begun to move downwards.

It cannot be natural pressure forcing it outward because there is a gaping hole from the aircraft on the left face. There is no way for pressure to build up with a vent opened as it is.

Newburgh Four: Poor, Black, and Jailed Under FBI 'Entrapment' Tactics

Newburgh Four: Poor, Black, and Jailed Under FBI 'Entrapment' Tactics

In June, four men were jailed for 25 years over a US terror plot. The FBI painted them as dedicated fanatics, but were they lured by the promise of cash from a fake informant?

By Paul Harris in New York

December 12, 2011 "The Guardian" - - Imam Salahuddin Muhammad could hardly miss Shahed Hussain when he first appeared three years ago at his mosque in the dilapidated town of Newburgh, just 60 miles up the Hudson River from New York.

Hussain was flash, drove expensive cars and treated people to gifts of cash and food. He also had radical opinions that stood out in a mosque that welcomed Shia and Sunni followers and had good relations with local Jewish and Christian communities.

"This guy said women should not be heard, not be seen. I thought that was strange," Muhammad told the Guardian as he sat in his office inside Newburgh's mosque." Muhammad, who is a black American convert, had no idea how strange things would get.

Hussain would make Newburgh's Muslim community famous when earlier this year four other black Newburgh Muslims were jailed for 25 years for a 2009 plot to fire a Stinger missile at US military planes. They also planted car bombs, packed with lethal ball bearings, outside Jewish targets in the wealthy New York suburb of Riverdale.

Prosecutors painted them as America-hating terrorists bent on slaughter. All four followed the instructions of Hussain, who meticulously organised the scheme: from getting the missile and bombs, to reconnaissance missions, to teaching the tenets of radical Islam.

The "Newburgh Four" now languish in jail. Hussain does not. For Hussain was a fake. In fact, Hussain worked for the FBI as an informant trawling mosques in hope of picking up radicals.

Yet far from being active militants, the four men he attracted were impoverished individuals struggling with Newburgh's grim epidemic of crack, drug crime and poverty. One had mental issues so severe his apartment contained bottles of his own urine. He also believed Florida was a foreign country.

Hussain offered the men huge financial inducements to carry out the plot – including $250,000 to one man – and free holidays and expensive cars.

Obama: We asked Iran to give us our drone back
By Laura Rozen | The Envoy

"But Obama's comments on the seized drone will likely upstage the designated subject of the conference--and are all but certain to become instant fodder for late-night comedy and GOP primary campaign barbs."

Iran released a video of downed U.S. stealth drone on December 8, 2011. (Yahoo News still …
President Obama has a message for Iran: He would like America's downed spy drone back.

Obama revealed the request for the return of the drone--which fell to earth in Iran recently, and had been captured in video footage circulated by the Iranian government--during a Monday White House news conference. The president shared the podium with Iraq's Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki as both leaders discussed the future of American-Iraqi relations after the withdrawal of remaining U.S. forces from Iraq this month.

But Obama's comments on the seized drone will likely upstage the designated subject of the conference--and are all but certain to become instant fodder for late-night comedy and GOP primary campaign barbs.

The Top 10 Best Films on 9/11 Truth

10. 9/11: Press For Truth (2006)
http://www.filmsforaction.org/Watch/911_Press_for_Truth/

The best introduction to the movement, following the 9/11 familes' search for truth, and their fight to get an investigation into 9/11, which they ultimately found unsatisfactory. It is the most conservative 9/11 film, and it is has also been the most ignored by the mainstream media. After watching it, you'll see why. This film alone, dispelling every crackpot insult you've ever heard lobbed at the movement, puts those comments to shame.

9. 911 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions (2004)
http://www.filmsforaction.org/Watch/911_Commission_Report_Omissions_and_Distortions/

Best summary of the official report. In a presentation by Professor David Ray Griffin, he asks "What's wrong with the official report?" This presentation builds on the evidence presented in 9/11: Press for Truth and goes on to detail even more disturbing contradictions and false-hoods.
