Taking Liberties is a shocking but hilarious polemic documentary that charts the destruction of all your Basic Liberties under 10 Years of New Labour.

Released to coincide with Tony Blair's departure, the film and the book follow the stories of normal people who's lives have been turned upside down by injustice - from being arrested for holding a placard outside parliament to being tortured in Guantanamo Bay.

One of the biggest stories in the last 20 years, American media is largely ignoring. Gore Vidal has something to say about it...

On June 9, 2008, a counterrevolution began on the floor of the House of Representatives against the gas and oil crooks who had seized control of the federal government. This counterrevolution began in the exact place which had slumbered during the all-out assault on our liberties and the Constitution itself.

[Mean People]
A secret memo authored by the Department of Justice (DOJ) asserting that President Bush has unlimited power to order brutal interrogations to extract information from detainees was declassified today as a result of an American Civil Liberties Union Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. The memo, written by John Yoo, then a deputy at the DOJ's Office of Legal Counsel (OLC), was sent to the Defense Department in March 2003.

Fighting the Advil menace, one strip search at a time

There are two kinds of people in the world: the kind who think it's perfectly reasonable to strip-search a 13-year-old girl suspected of bringing ibuprofen to school, and the kind who think those people should be kept as far away from children as possible. The first group includes officials at Safford Middle School in Safford, Arizona, who in 2003 forced eighth-grader Savana Redding to prove she was not concealing Advil in her crotch or cleavage.

Rush Limbaugh Implicated In Vote Fraud Scheme

Posted by Pile (20678 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


In case you missed it, Rush Limbaugh, the oxycotin-taking conservative talk radio host, was urging Republicans in Texas and Ohio to skip their party's primary on March 4 and instead cast a vote for Hillary Clinton in order to prolong the fight between her and Barack Obama. And that Tuesday, as media in both states reported, thousands of Republicans did just what Limbaugh and others had suggested -- they changed parties to vote for Clinton.

One problem. That's basically illegal. And now the board of elections is looking into a criminal investigation of the matter.

Web Site Revealing Money Laundering Scheme Is Shut Down

Posted by Pile (6768 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


A group people are apparently behind a scheme to shut down the web site Wikileaks, for publicizing documents which appear to show an elaborate tax evasion scheme involving the Cayman Islands, Swiss bankers and a host of powerful American businesspeople. In what's a poignant demonstration of how much people in government know technology, an injunction was granted against the domain registrar for wikileaks.org to make it not resolve (shut the whole web site down instead of ask offending content to be removed) but these people didn't know much about mirrors or IP addresses apparently.

New Hampshire Ballot Process Gets Weird

While a recount of the Democratic primary in New Hampshire shows little changes, that's not the whole story. The real story is what you won't see on the news, and that's the hanky panky that was done with the ballot boxes, which defies logic and common sense.

What happens when a camera crew follows the ballot boxes from a local election? Chaos and confusion and total deviation from the plan... watch the video. It's as if our political leaders are a bunch of pod people and nobody cares if their votes are counted properly!

Congress Turns Internet Into Police State

Reason #34,261 To Not Use Wi-Fi: The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday overwhelmingly approved a bill saying that anyone offering an open Wi-Fi connection to the public must report illegal images including "obscene" cartoons and drawings--or face fines of up to $300,000.

That broad definition would cover individuals, coffee shops, libraries, hotels, and even some government agencies that provide Wi-Fi. It also sweeps in social-networking sites, domain name registrars, Internet service providers, and e-mail service providers such as Hotmail and Gmail, and it may require that the complete contents of the user's account be retained for subsequent police inspection.

[News Media]
In reaction to Dennis Kucinich's bill to pursue impeachment proceedings for Vice President Cheney, CBS's Harry Smith called the effort a "bluff," that only a "handful of people" are in favor of impeachment and merely a political tactic to get a failing presidential candidate some attention... Watch this embarrassing hit-piece on a politician who is actually trying to do something about the administration's impending rhetoric for invading Iran....

Bush the winner. Attorney Mark Levine has an informative Q & A about this landmark court decision that may have forever changed the face of democracy in the U.S.

This is about a year old, but still worth revisiting because it never got enough press last year: Deep within the "Terrorist Tribunal" Act is a provision retroactively pardoning the President, Vice President, and their subordinates for violations of the War Crimes Act committed since September 11, 2001.

Btw this bill was part of the Military Commissions Act of 2006, which passed and is now law.

The stunt got the student wrestled to the ground, tasered and arrested by no less than five cops. Yay Freedom(tm)!
