AUMF: Authorization for Use of Military Force For Grandparents

This message is for American grandparents and the topic is:

AUMF: AUMF 2001: Public Law 107-40:
AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE

We invite you to join the leaderless and loose-knit bipartisan/nonpartisan coalition of Democratic, Republican, third-party, independent, apolitical and even anti-political American citizens rallying behind “H.R. 198: Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force”, a bill now before the United States Congress which will hobble the Imperial Presidency created under Dubya and Darth by the post 9/11 AUMF, the USA Patriot Act, the REAL ID Act and hundreds of Executive Orders and National Security Letters … expanded under Odrona the Indefinite Detainer by NDAA 2012, H.R. 347 and H.R. 658 plus hundreds more Executive Orders and National Security Letters … and culminating in the creation of a vast Military/Intelligence/HomelandSecurity/CounterTerrorism Industrial Complex that operates above and outside of the law, unaccountable to the People, impenetrable by the Freedom of Information Act, and unanswerable to our courts.

The Imperial Presidency headed by corporate fascist puppet Barack Obama claims the right under NDAA 2012 to indefinitely detain American citizens on American soil without charge or trial, and the right under AUMF 2001 to kill those same American citizens with domestic drone strikes and without due process of law. That means that either their targets or the collateral damage from their attacks could include you, your children or your grandchildren.

Your innocent grandchildren are probably too young and naive to fight for their freedom or protect themselves, and your children are probably too self-involved or techno-stupefied to recognize the threat to their lives and liberties. That leaves you, the grandparent, as their only hope for salvation.

The grandparents of America allowed all of this to happen. The grandparents of America cowered when they should have asked questions … allowed themselves to be distracted when they should have demanded answers … and sat back and watched television as our Constitution and Bill Of Rights were decimated, and our once-great Republic slid from Freedom to Fascism. The grandparents of America danced when they should have been demonstrating, and now it is time they pay the fiddler.

If you are an American grandparent above the age of 50, then you know what I say is true. And if you truly love your grandchildren, then you should know what you must do. If you are not sure where to begin, you can start here:

Repeal AUMF Now! 16 Slides To Show You Why. 16 Steps To Tell You How.

Slide 1 of 16: On 9/14/2001 U.S. Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) stood alone before Congress opposing AUMF. On 3/5/2013 U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) stood alone before the Senate trying to protect us from AUMF. It’s time they stand together to repeal AUMF!

Action Step 1 of 16: Call (202-225-2661) or fax (202-225-9817) U.S. Congresswoman Barbara Lee, the sponsor of “H.R. 198: Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force.” Thank her for standing against AUMF on the floor of the House of Representatives, then remind her that Teddy Ky Nam Miller, her staffer responsible for the bill, was once an Obama Delegate Candidate. Ask her to verify that he has no conflicts of allegiance, and that his priorities are in order.

)(

Slide 2 of 16: Pass H.R. 198 to repeal PL 107-40, the post 9/11 2001 Authorization to Use Force or “AUMF”, now before the murdered children declared “collateral damage” of a domestic drone strike are your very own kids.

Action Step 2 of 16: Call (202-224-4343) or fax (202-228-6917) U.S. Senator Rand Paul, the star of last week’s redux of “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.” Thank him for standing against the Imperial Presidency and domestic drone strikes allegedly justified by AUMF on the floor of Senate, then remind him that actions speak louder than words. Ask him to sponsor a companion bill for H.R. 198, or co-sponsor such a bill if another Senator sponsors one first.

)(

Slide 3 of 16: Bring an end to the Imperial Presidency and reign in Odrona the Indefinite Detainer. AUMF 2001 is the sole basis for NDAA 2012 and domestic drone strikes. Pass HR198 to repeal PL 107-40 while we still can.

Action Step 3 of 16: Call, fax, email AND tweet (with hashtag #RepealAUMF) both of your United States Senators and demand that they either (a) sponsor a companion bill for H.R. 198, (b) co-sponsor such a bill if another Senator sponsors one first, or (c) acknowledge that their failure to act will cost them your contributions and your vote.

Slide 4 of 16: Why repeal #AUMF? “We were told we were fighting terrorists. The real terrorist was me… The real enemy is here. Poor people in this country are sent to kill poor people in another country, to make the rich richer.” @MikePrysner

Action Step 4 of 16: Call, fax, email AND tweet (with hashtag #RepealAUMF) your United States Representative in Congress and demand that they either (a) co-sponsor H.R. 198 or (b) acknowledge that their failure to act will cost them your contributions and your vote.

)(

Slide 5 of 16: Repeal the Military Force Law NOW: Pass H.R.198 to take war powers out of the hands of corporate puppet politicians in the White House, and restore them to the corporate puppet politicians in Congress. At least that way the power is divided.

Action Step 5 of 16: Call, fax, email AND tweet (with hashtag #RepealAUMF) every member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and demand that they either (a) openly and aggressively support H.R. 198 or (b) acknowledge that you will openly and aggressively support their opponent in the next election – even if you are a member of their party, and even if you don’t live in their district.

)(

Slide 6 of 16: We must pass H.R.198 to repeal the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) now and end the unconstitutional, unjustifiable and unsustainable perpetual Global War on Terrorism (GWOT).

Action Step 6 of 16: If you are a member of the Democratic Party or any of their political front organizations, contact them in the most effective way you know and demand that they openly and aggressively support the passage of H.R. 198 and its Senate companion bill with current wording intact. Follow up to make sure they do, and assure them they will no longer receive your donations or support if they don’t.

)(

Slide 7 of 16: Repeal AUMF Now! The only “Mission Accomplished” by 11+ years of illegal aggression has been to make the war criminals that control our Military Industrial Complex rich by slaughtering the sons and daughters of the poor.

Action Step 7 of 16: If you are a member of the Republican Party or any of their political front organizations, contact them in the most effective way you know and demand that they openly and aggressively support the passage of H.R. 198 and its Senate companion bill with current wording intact. Follow up to make sure they do, and assure them that they will no longer receive your donations or support if they don’t.

)(

Slide 8 of 16: If you really want to STOP THE MACHINE then demand ALL Senators and Representatives pass H.R. 198, The Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force, which is the sole legal justification for endless wars and drone strikes.

Action Step 8 of 16: If you are a member of any so-called “third party” (Green Party, Libertarian Party, Tea Party, etc.), contact them in the most effective way you know and demand that they openly and aggressively support the passage of H.R. 198 and its Senate companion bill with current wording intact. Follow up to make sure they do, and assure them that they will no longer receive your donations or support if they don’t.

Slide 9 of 16: The political spectrum is not the false continuum used to keep the People fighting each other rather than their oppressors. It is instead a circle, and at a point Far Left meets Far Right. There we must unite to #RepealAUMF now!

Action Step 9 of 16: Regardless of your political party affiliation or refusal thereof, try to “reach across the aisle” and build the broadest possible base of support to pass H.R. 198 intact and repeal AUMF. The only way we will stop the machine here is to unite as Americans and ignore – for the time being at least – the Democrat/Liberal/Left and Republican/Conservative/Right “labels” the establishment uses to keep us divided fighting each other rather than united attacking them.

)(

Slide 10 of 16: Martin Luther King Jr. shared his dream with us. Barack Hussein Obama II wants to fire drones at us. We say MLK was OK, but Obama’s drones need to go away. Repeal AUMF and let’s put Obama and his drones in their place.

Action Step 10 of 16: Identify at least the top 3 television stations, radio stations and newspapers in your area, then make a list of at least the top 10 major advertisers in each. Do so and you will have a total of at least 9 media organizations and 90 advertisers. Contact each of them by telephone, fax, email AND Twitter to let them know that if (a) the media organizations do not give fair and balanced coverage to the issues surrounding AUMF and the efforts to repeal it, then (b) you will boycott their advertisers by refusing to buy their products or services.

)(

Slide 11 of 16: The only positive outcome of the post 9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) has been the display of courage in defying it shown by heroes like Bradley Manning and Julian Assange.

Action Step 11 of 16: Follow @RepealAUMFNow on Twitter. Check in with us at least once a day for #RepealAUMF updates and to make sure we haven’t been unjustifiably suspended again. If you see that we have been suspended, call (415-222-9670) and fax (415-222-0922) Twitter demanding that the suspension be lifted. Ask all those who follow you to do the same thing. These guidelines, by the way, are not reliable:

)(

Slide 12 of 16: Until now all the ACLU has done with AUMF, NDAA, the Patriot Act, Citizens United and other clear instances of Creeping Fascism is post online petitions that they use to build donor databases. DEMAND the ACLU do more!

Action Step 12 of 16: Congresswoman Barbara Lee asks that you sign her online petition as a “citizen cosigner” for H.R. 198 here:

http://act.myngp.com/Forms/-8494070372197466112

Many consider signing online petitions to be nothing more than an impotent exercise in feel-good internet slacktivism, but there have been exceptions to the rule and we can hope this will be one.

)(

Slide 13 of 16: We cannot actually “Repeal The War On Terror” and undo the damage we have done overseas, to ourselves and to our souls, but we can pass H.R. 198 to Repeal the Authorization for Use of Military Force and end the waste and slaughter.

Action Step 13 of 16: RootsAction.org also has an online petition in support of H.R. 198 called ‘Repeal the “War on Terror.”‘ The same caveats mentioned in Step 12 apply, but please sign it anyway:

http://act.rootsaction.org/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=7348

Once our campaign reaches critical mass, you can expect the ACLU and other groups to be pitching similar petitions. If you sign one and they turn around and hit you up for donations, insist on first knowing specifically what they plan to do with your money.

)(

Slide 14 of 16: If the post 9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF 2001) did not exist, Chris Hedges would not need to battle Obama in court over the NDAA 2012 provisions for Indefinite Detention of Americans without charge or trial.

Action Step 14 of 16: If you are a parent or grandparent, think about your children or grandchildren and what the consequences will be for them if we do not pass H.R. 198 and repeal AUMF. Put down your keyboard, turn off your TV, rise up from your easy chair and get involved. If you can’t lead, then follow. Either way, be willing to make a sacrifice now – a serious and personal sacrifice, if necessary – to make sure your grandkids don’t spit on your grave later.

)(

Slide 15 of 16: Repeal AUMF now and remove the legal foundation for an “Imperial Presidency” under which Barack Obama claims the executive power to authorize domestic drone strikes targeting American citizens on American soil.

Action Step 15 of 16: The real power is in the streets. If you are a member of the Occupy Movement or any other political activists group, make the repeal of the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF 2001) the focus of your direct action. Support those who are openly seeking the passage of H.R. 198 and its Senate companion, and engage those who are not. Defy measures intended to censor protest, and employ guerrilla activism to maximize media coverage. Remember that what the Sheeple don’t see never happened.

)(

Slide 16 of 16: Repeal AUMF Now! America cannot be the “Land of the Free” so long as our goverment can detain us without cause, imprison us without trial and kill us without due process. DEMAND your Senators and Representatives support H.R. 198.

Action Step 16 of 16: If you have a website, blog, forum or Facebook page, repost this content and tweet links to your postings. Share this with all of your social networking contacts on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Plus and elsewhere. Make a video testimonial then post and promote it on YouTube, Vimeo or wherever else you can post videos, then share links to your videos on social media. Email this to all of your contacts and ask them to do the same thing!

To My Fellow Riders and All Freedom Fighters:

History repeats itself. And if you understand the timeline above, then you understand what the next step in the timeline must be, unless somehow the timeline can be reversed.

This is the most important bill before the U.S. Congress today:

H.R. 198: Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force
http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr198

The text of H.R.198 is short and self-explanatory:

###

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the ‘Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force’.

SEC. 2. CONGRESSIONAL FINDING.

Congress finds that the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note), signed into law on September 18, 2001, has been used to justify a broad and open-ended authorization for the use of military force and such an interpretation is inconsistent with the authority of Congress to declare war and make all laws for executing powers vested by the Constitution in the Government of the United States.

SEC. 3. REPEAL OF PUBLIC LAW 107-40.

Effective 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note) is hereby repealed.

This is the most important bill before Congress because it would go a long way towards reversing the creeping fascism that has defined the politics and controlled the government of post-Eisenhower America.

Most American citizens have never heard of “HR198” and what few have often confuse it with unrelated but like-numbered bills from previous Congressional sessions. Like opposition to the indefinite detention provisions of NDAA 2012, our corporate-controlled mainstream media is likely to give little if any coverage to HR 198 and its opposition to the carte blanche executive authority to take out anyone anywhere granted by AUMF. Even alternative media is thus far limited to this single and painfully frank assessment by Norman Solomon:

http://truth-out.org/news/item/14755-congress-end-endless-war-and-stop-becoming-the-evil-that-we-deplore

AUMF is a serious issue, folks, unlike the staged partisan propaganda spewing out of Washington and force-fed to you by the talking heads on your television. AUMF was passed in 2001 with bipartisan support that included the vote of every Democrat and Republican then in Congress except one – Barbara Lee, the current sponsor of HR198 – and it will take a united, non-partisan coalition to undo what the fascist puppet “Demopublicans” have done.

For those of you who believe democracy still exists in these United States, a groundswell of grassroots activism leading to the passage and signing of “H.R. 198: Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force” with its wording intact may very well be your last chance to prove it. Fail to do so, and you can rest assured that history WILL repeat itself.

Original Post:

Repeal AUMF: H.R. 198 Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force


In Post-NDAA Amerika, What is a Terrorist and Who Can Make You Disappear by Calling You One?

Suspected Terrorist

IN POST NDAA AMERIKA, WHAT IS A TERRORIST AND WHO CAN MAKE YOU DISAPPEAR BY CALLING YOU ONE?

Since corporate fascist puppet president Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 into law this past New Year’s Eve (NDAA: Public Law 112-81), the powers of indefinite detention claimed under the post-9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force Act (AUMF: Public Law 107-40) have been codified. Now the mere suspicion of being a “terrorist” is sufficient grounds for an American citizen – on American soil – to be arrested and detained indefinitely without charge or trial. Obvious questions of constitutionality aside, this should prompt at least the cautious to ask questions like the following:

1. What is the legal definition of “terrorist”?

2. Who can make you disappear by calling you one?

To answer the first question, we searched the online version of the United States Code – “the codification of the general and permanent laws of the United States” – for a definition of “terrorist”. And to our amazement, we didn’t find one. Over 400 references to “terrorist” in the USC, yes. But a specific definition, no. What we did find is this:

Title 8 Section 1182(a)(3)(B) defines “terrorist activity” but not “terrorist”:

(iii) “Terrorist activity” defined As used in this chapter, the term “terrorist activity” means any activity which is unlawful under the laws of the place where it is committed (or which, if it had been committed in the United States, would be unlawful under the laws of the United States or any State) and which involves any of the following: (I) The highjacking or sabotage of any conveyance (including an aircraft, vessel, or vehicle). (II) The seizing or detaining, and threatening to kill, injure, or continue to detain, another individual in order to compel a third person (including a governmental organization) to do or abstain from doing any act as an explicit or implicit condition for the release of the individual seized or detained. (III) A violent attack upon an internationally protected person (as defined in section 1116(b)(4) of title 18) or upon the liberty of such a person. (IV) An assassination. (V) The use of any – (a) biological agent, chemical agent, or nuclear weapon or device, or (b) explosive, firearm, or other weapon or dangerous device (other than for mere personal monetary gain), with intent to endanger, directly or indirectly, the safety of one or more individuals or to cause substantial damage to property. (VI) A threat, attempt, or conspiracy to do any of the foregoing. (iv) “Engage in terrorist activity” defined As used in this chapter, the term “engage in terrorist activity” means, in an individual capacity or as a member of an organization – (I) to commit or to incite to commit, under circumstances indicating an intention to cause death or serious bodily injury, a terrorist activity; (II) to prepare or plan a terrorist activity; (III) to gather information on potential targets for terrorist activity; (IV) to solicit funds or other things of value for – (aa) a terrorist activity; (bb) a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(I) or (vi)(II); or (cc) a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III), unless the solicitor can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that he did not know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a terrorist organization;

(V) to solicit any individual – (aa) to engage in conduct otherwise described in this subsection; (bb) for membership in a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(I) or (vi)(II); or (cc) for membership in a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III) unless the solicitor can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that he did not know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a terrorist organization; or

(VI) to commit an act that the actor knows, or reasonably should know, affords material support, including a safe house, transportation, communications, funds, transfer of funds or other material financial benefit, false documentation or identification, weapons (including chemical, biological, or radiological weapons), explosives, or training – (aa) for the commission of a terrorist activity; (bb) to any individual who the actor knows, or reasonably should know, has committed or plans to commit a terrorist activity; (cc) to a terrorist organization described in subclause (I) or (II) of clause (vi) or to any member of such an organization; or (dd) to a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III), or to any member of such an organization, unless the actor can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that the actor did not know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a terrorist organization. (v) “Representative” defined As used in this paragraph, the term “representative” includes an officer, official, or spokesman of an organization, and any person who directs, counsels, commands, or induces an organization or its members to engage in terrorist activity. (vi) “Terrorist organization” defined As used in this section, the term “terrorist organization” means an organization – (I) designated under section 1189 of this title; (II) otherwise designated, upon publication in the Federal Register, by the Secretary of State in consultation with or upon the request of the Attorney General or the Secretary of Homeland Security, as a terrorist organization, after finding that the organization engages in the activities described in subclauses (I) through (VI) of clause (iv); or (III) that is a group of two or more individuals, whether organized or not, which engages in, or has a subgroup which engages in, the activities described in subclauses (I) through (VI) of clause (iv).

Title 18 Section 2331 defines “international terrorism” and “domestic terrorism” [READ CLOSELY] but not “terrorist”:

As used in this chapter- (1) the term “international terrorism” means activities that- (A) involve violent acts or acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State, or that would be a criminal violation if committed within the jurisdiction of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended- (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily outside the territorial jurisdiction of the United States, or transcend national boundaries in terms of the means by which they are accomplished, the persons they appear intended to intimidate or coerce, or the locale in which their perpetrators operate or seek asylum; (2) the term “national of the United States” has the meaning given such term in section 101(a)(22) of the Immigration and Nationality Act; (3) the term “person” means any individual or entity capable of holding a legal or beneficial interest in property; (4) the term “act of war” means any act occurring in the course of- (A) declared war; (B) armed conflict, whether or not war has been declared, between two or more nations; or (C) armed conflict between military forces of any origin; and (5) the term “domestic terrorism” means activities that- (A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended- (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.

http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/2331

Title 22 Section 2656f(d) defines “international terrorism”, “terrorism”, “terrorist group” and “terrorist sanctuary” but not “terrorist”:

(d) Definitions As used in this section- (1) the term “international terrorism” means terrorism involving citizens or the territory of more than 1 country; (2) the term “terrorism” means premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents; (3) the term “terrorist group” means any group practicing, or which has significant subgroups which practice, international terrorism; (4) the terms “territory” and “territory of the country” mean the land, waters, and airspace of the country; and (5) the terms “terrorist sanctuary” and “sanctuary” mean an area in the territory of the country- (A) that is used by a terrorist or terrorist organization- (i) to carry out terrorist activities, including training, fundraising, financing, and recruitment; or (ii) as a transit point; and (B) the government of which expressly consents to, or with knowledge, allows, tolerates, or disregards such use of its territory and is not subject to a determination under- (i) section 2405(j)(1)(A) of the Appendix to title 50; (ii) section 2371 (a) of this title; or (iii) section 2780 (d) of this title.

I’m no attorney and I don’t play one on television. But after reading the above, it seems to me that the short answer to the question “What is the legal definition of terrorist?” is “That depends.”

Now on to the second question: Who can make you disappear by calling you one?

According to the Washington Post’s TOP SECRET AMERICA project, there are “45 government organizations (for example, the FBI) engaged in top-secret work [that can] be broken down into 1,271 sub-units (for example, the Terrorist Screening Center of the FBI).” I’m pretty sure they can. But they also mention “4,058 government organizations involved in domestic counterterrorism and homeland security” including 2,880 federal organizations that work at the state level, such as the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs), plus 818 state and 360 local organizations. I’m pretty sure they can, too. And then of course there’s the “1,931 companies engaged in top-secret work for the government.” I’d wager some or all of them can, as well.

http://projects.washingtonpost.com/top-secret-america/articles/methodology/

And that’s not all. We also have to consider the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative (NSI):

http://nsi.ncirc.gov/

Using NaSI SARs (Suspicious Activity Reports), just about anyone can drop the dime the makes you disappear: a hateful former spouse, a jealous or jilted lover, that co-worker you’re always competing with, or maybe just a nosey neighbor.

World War Web Advisory #1: Are You An Unwitting Victim Of Internet Censorship?

World War Web

WORLD WAR WEB ADVISORY #1: ARE YOU AN UNWITTING VICTIM OF INTERNET CENSORSHIP?

1. Emails about topics like Occupy Wall Street, 9/11, the USA Patriot Act, Citizens United v. FEC, AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the Protect IP Act (PIPA) and the Enemy Expatriation Act (EEA) are being blocked by Network Solutions, Verizon and other ISPs using Barracuda, Cloudmark Authority and other Internet censorship systems euphemistically referred to as “spam filters”. The 99% can use the same weapon against the 1%: Whenever you receive emails from corrupt corporations – such as those listed at http://contractormisconduct.org – flag them as spam and report them to your ISP.

2. Your Twitter “tweets” about topics like Occupy Wall Street, 9/11, the USA Patriot Act, Citizens United v. FEC, AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the Protect IP Act (PIPA) and the Enemy Expatriation Act (EEA) may be blocked from the Twitter search stream without your knowledge. To find out, make a posting with a popular #hashtag, log out of Twitter, clear your “cookies” then close and restart your web browser. Before logging back in, search Twitter – https://twitter.com/#!/search-home – on your #hashtag and see if your tweet is listed. ( Note that these are generalized instructions: Use your judgment. )

3. Your Facebook postings, YouTube comments, other social media posts and online news article and blog comments about topics like Occupy Wall Street, 9/11, the USA Patriot Act, Citizens United v. FEC, AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the Protect IP Act (PIPA) and the Enemy Expatriation Act (EEA) may also be blocked without your knowledge. To find out if you are being censored, bookmark your page and log out after you post, clear your “cookies” then close and restart your web browser. Before logging back in, use your bookmark to reload and refresh the page where you posted or commented, and see if your posting is still there. ( Note that these are generalized instructions: Use your judgment. )

4. Although our kleptocracy-chronicling links are still there, our Reddit page – http://www.reddit.com/user/vvvpr – has been blocked, most likely due to corporate fascist pressure being applied from outside or above, although I’m sure they’ll claim it was due to a TOS (terms of service) violation. We will be replicating this link archive elsewhere. And the more of our link archives they take down, the more mirror copies we will put up. Follow us on Twitter @vvvpr for updates.

Creeping Fascism: If We Don’t Kill NDAA/SOPA/EEA/Keystone XL Pipeline They Win. If We Only Kill NDAA/SOPA/EEA/Keystone XL Pipeline We Lose.

Creeping Fascism

This is a heads-up reminder that NDAA 2012, SOPA, PIPA, EEA and the accelerated approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline were all thrown at us AFTER 17 September 2011, i.e. “Day One” of Occupy Wall Street and the global Occupy movement. We must reject or reverse all of these or we lose. But even if we undo NDAA, stop SOPA, prevent PIPA, eliminate EEA and outlaw the Keystone XL Pipeline, that doesn’t mean we win. It simply means we’d be right back where we started on 9/17, facing all the same injustices that inspired us to rise up against the corporate fascist elite kleptocracy that has taken over the United States government and through it much of the rest of the world. In other words…

If we don’t kill NDAA/SOPA/EEA and the Keystone XL Pipeline, they win. But if we only kill NDAA/SOPA/EEA and the Keystone XL Pipeline, we lose. To win we must remove corporations and their money from our politics and government then un-rig our voting machines and roll back years of their diabolically patient deception-after-deception, law-by-law, concession-after-concession, degree-by-degree, boiling-the-frog approach to global wealth concentration and world domination. The starting point is to reverse this timeline:

Subject: [ Freedom to Fascism Redux: A Timeline of Recent American History ]

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” – Abraham Lincoln

Dear Wayne Bowen,

If you had read this first…

http://www.salon.com/2011/12/16/three_myths_about_the_detention_bill/singleton/

…then perhaps you would not have written this:

http://www.semissourian.com/story/1803597.html

Let me give you a timeline for the last few years of American history:

FREEDOM > PNAC > 9/11 > AUMF > PATRIOT ACT > CITIZENS UNITED > NDAA > SOPA PIPA > EEA > FASCISM

Here is what all that means…

FREEDOM: What the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights once guaranteed to all American Citizens.

http://www.usconstitution.net

PNAC: Our wars for oil and profit were planned LONG before 9/11, but an excuse was needed to justify them.

http://www.newamericancentury.org/iraqclintonletter.htm

[ Note: This letter was dated January 26 1998 and the last paragraph reads “We urge you to act decisively. If you act now to end the threat of weapons of mass destruction against the U.S. or its allies, you will be acting in the most fundamental national security interests of the country. If we accept a course of weakness and drift, we put our interests and our future at risk.” ]

9/11: The excuse that was needed to sacrifice lives and liberties while corporations raided our treasury.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=25489

AUMF: Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40), a “war against terror” carte blanche.

http://news.findlaw.com/wp/docs/terrorism/sjres23.es.html

PATRIOT ACT: 68,000 words worth of Orwellian “1984” legislation supposedly drafted and passed in six weeks.

http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/PLAW-107publ56

CITIZENS UNITED: The U.S. Supreme Court decision that gave corporations a legal way to buy U.S. elections.

http://www.scotusblog.com/case-files/cases/citizens-united-v-federal-election-commission/

NDAA: The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, which codifies indefinite detention without trial.

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h112-1540

SOPA/PIPA: The proposed Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act, euphemisms for Internet censorship.

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h112-3261

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s112-968

EEA: The proposed Enemy Expatriation Act, under which dissent could result in revocation of citizenship.

http://amerikanreich.com/2012/01/10/the-enemy-expatriation-act-s-1698h-r-3166-a-statement-from-anonymous/

FASCISM: Rule by corporate elite we can only reverse by waking up 312 million mostly clueless Americans.
