Does A Dead Man Have A Right To Privacy? or When Is It “Safe” To “Do History” ?

Does A Dead Man Have A Right To Privacy? or When Is It “Safe” To “Do History” ?
By Wendy S. Painting, October 12, 2009

Recently I received troublesome news about my research into the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. As part of my PhD dissertation about the tragedy, I have corresponded with federal death row inmate, David Paul Hammer. Hammer awaits his fate in Terre Haute, Indiana, where he was formerly housed with another death row inmate, Timothy McVeigh, executed in 2001 for his role in the bombing. During their shared time on death row Hammer claims that McVeigh confided some very important details about the bombing which he wanted Hammer to bring to light after McVeigh’s execution. Hammer did this in his 2004 book “Secrets Worth Dying For.” Many of the claims that Hammer makes may sound bizarre to some, such as McVeigh’s insistence that he had been tasked by authorities to infiltrate ‘right wing extremists,’ yet after souring the defense documents of McVeigh’s legal defense team, I found many which corroborate and support some of Hammer’s various claims, including medical and military records, as well as other types of documentary evidence.

Why 'GQ' Doesn't Want Russians To Read Its Story

If the Russian FSB does false-flag attacks on its own citizens, why the efforts to bury the story in the US?

Gawker.com (of all places) translates this story into Russian:
Эй, вы можете прочитать запрещенную статью GQ про Путина здесь

Larisa Alexandrovna has been pursuing the FSB apartment bombing story, in this update she covers the GQ censorship, and quotes from coverage by 9/11 Truth-trasher and Goldman 'Vampire Squid' Sachs 'conspiracy theorist' Matt Taibi:
GQ buries Russia's FSB false-flag ops...

Why 'GQ' Doesn't Want Russians To Read Its Story
September 4, 2009

For war journalist Scott Anderson, the most confounding part of his recent assignment for GQ magazine to explore the root of terrorist acts in Russia a decade ago wasn't the suggestion of treachery and subterfuge he found.

France Declares Three Strikes Unconstitutional

Source: Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), June 10th, 2009
Commentary by Danny O'Brien

Before legislation becomes law in France, it must pass the muster of the Conseil Constitutionnel: a group of jurists who determine whether each new law is consistent with the principles and rules of France's constitution.

For the passage of Sarkozy's unpopular "three strikes" HADOPI legislation, the approval of the Conseil was the final hurdle to cross. If the council had approved the law, rightsholders in France would have been able to cast French citizens off the Internet with no judicial oversight, simply by alleging to the new HADOPI administrative body that they were repeat copyright infringers. These citizens would then have their names added to a national Internet blacklist for up to a year, and ISPs would be subject to financial penalties if they gave these exiles access to the Internet.

Viral "You are a Terrorist"-Ad tries to inform german population

I know this is in german, but i really like the tone of this small movie and shows the (hopefully!) current awaking in Germany for the topic.

Some weeks ago, the german government reached another step in control over the masses by officially introducing internet censorship. While a lot of other issues (like biometric ID passes, the right of the BKA (german FBI) to spy on computers connected to the internet via a trojan, the storing of internet and mobile phone traffic etc.) couldn't raise too much interest, the censorship of internet got huge over the last few month. This video picks up the hype by showing what we're actually up to: Everyone is a suspect, everyone is a terrorist now. The ad is based on a huge campaign started 2005 called "You are Germany" ("Du bist Deutschland"), which should spread positive energy around the country to do the right things as a German. Now, the population is slowly realizing what it's up to, so the ad is now translated to "You are a terrorist".

It's a pretty good text, pretty well spoken and well produced:

TruthAction Thread: Wikipedia editors livid over new [Active Thermitic Material] paper

Activist editors at Wikipedia have changed the name of the "World Trade Center Controlled Demolition Hypothesis" page to "World Trade Center Demolition Conspiracy Theories", are removing all links to the paper "Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe" recently published in the refereed Open Chemical Physics Journal (including from the 9/11 Truth Movement page and even Dr. Steven Jones' page), and have banned and/or restricted some users that re-add the links and question their policy.

See the discussion thread at TruthAction.org- many links to relevant pages at Wikipedia; the "Talk" page is very revealing of their bias, hypocrisy and intellectual dishonesty:

Wikipedia editors livid over new paper

The new paper has pulled the rug out from under the wikipedia front lines defending the official story and they have now suddenly changed the title of the demolition page from --

Controlled demolition hypothesis for the collapse of the World Trade Center

to --

World Trade Center controlled demolition conspiracy theories

The Corbett Report
26 February, 2009

When YouTube burst onto the scene in February 2005, it wasn't long before this simple concept revolutionized the way people connect to each other and the way they define "the media." As Vancouver 9/11 Truth activist Michael Hey told The Corbett Report in a recent interview: "I shudder to think where we would be right now if we didn't have YouTube, or if we didn't have the various video hosting services that we have," he said. "Think of the example of Montebello in 2007 where there were agents provocateurs who were outed by citizen journalists."

FDNY - Explosions

I've been building an online portfolio of all my work, and this was among the things to be uploaded. I figured I'd post it on here as well.

Watch in HD if possible.

SURVEY: Tell THE NATION magazine to Start Covering 9/11

Editor & Publisher, The Nation

Dear Friend,

What issues are the mainstream media ignoring?

What are The Nation's reporting goals for 2009?

Idea in Eighth place at Change.org

I was just notified by change.org that my idea was in eighth place in its category. This is the same site that has censored ideas mentioning 9-11, yet this idea has survived for weeks. If it hits the top three in the category, it gets forwarded to Obama, and perhaps more importantly, the more votes it gets the more visibility it earns on the site.

Why not look it over and see whether it's worth a collective effort to bump it into third place. Here's how it reads:

End Censorship of War on Terror
Ever since the "War on Terror" began, there's been massive censorship about the facts surrounding it both within the corporate media, the progressive media, and internet news sites and blogs. The Obama administration should announce a policy of increased transparency surrounding the War on Terror, and the media should take that as a cue to stop censoring their content.

And here's the text of the email I received:

We wanted to let you know that there are only 2 weeks left in the first round of the "Ideas for Change in America" competition, and your idea is in 8th place in the Civic Engagement category.

CTBUH stifles discussion on NIST's WTC 7 report

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) recently published their comments on the NIST draft for final report on WTC 7, as reported on 911Blogger.

CTBUH's comments and NIST's investigation are discussed on this CTBUH forum.

When one reads the exchanges, it becomes pretty obvious that DScott, the CTBUH Chairman, displays no interest at all in discussing any of the difficult questions raised by several posters about NIST's report and WTC 7 investigation.

This becomes even more obvious when one sees what kind of a "putsch" took place after I challenged DScott on the issue of evidence destruction, and after Chris Sarns of AE911Truth had concluded that NIST had changed their previous statements about the use of shear studs in girders in order to facilitate their latest theory.

All four of my posts and Chris' latest post were deleted and the discussion forum closed. On CTBUH's homepage it now reads "The forum on this topic has now closed, however, click here to read over the comments that were posted....."

Censorship Of The Internet Is Coming Closer To Home-Australia Is Putting Their Toe In The Water


from the Herald Sun:

AUSTRALIA will join China in implementing mandatory censoring of the internet under plans put forward by the Federal Government.

The revelations emerge as US tech giants Google, Microsoft and Yahoo, and a coalition of human rights and other groups unveiled a code of conduct aimed at safeguarding online freedom of speech and privacy.

The government has declared it will not let internet users opt out of the proposed national internet filter.

The plan was first created as a way to combat child pronography and adult content, but could be extended to include controversial websites on euthanasia or anorexia.

Communications minister Stephen Conroy revealed the mandatory censorship to the Senate estimates committee as the Global Network Initiative, bringing together leading companies, human rights organisations, academics and investors, committed the technology firms to "protect the freedom of expression and privacy rights of their users".

Mr Conroy said trials were yet to be carried out, but "we are talking about mandatory blocking, where possible, of illegal material."

College Newpaper Promises the”Naked Truth” except for the Truth About 9/11

Three editors of a University of Florida College Newspaper joined together in an effective ban on printing anything having to do with the government coverup of the events of 9/11/2001.

In their September issue of THE FINE PRINT (TFP) the editors characterized their inspiration as coming from a core of dedicated “truth seekers” and affirmed their commitment to print “the Naked Truth”. But by October, they had retreated to a disturbing “mainstream” position that betrays their initial enthusiastic promise.
