Authorization for Use of Military Force … On YOU

)(

AUMF 2001 (PL 107-40) did not target the “terrorists” behind the 9/11 attacks. Its target was and is the taxpaying American citizen. Here are the only two ways to take yourself out of the crosshairs.

)(

If you ask most Americans how many World Trade Center towers were demolished on 9/11, they’ll say 2. The correct answer is 3. If you remind them that WTC-7 came down as well as WTC-1 and WTC-2, and then ask them how many World Trade Center towers were struck by airplanes or seriously damaged by debris, they’ll usually say 3. The correct answer is 2. Remind them of THAT, however, and you are immediately labelled a 9/11 truther or conspiracy nut.

The “truth” may well be, however, that most Americans simply don’t want to think about what really happened at World Trade Center 7 and elsewhere on 11 September 2001 because it forces them to question either (a) the laws of physics and logic or (b) what they were told happened by their government. The cognitive dissonance generated is too much for their media-brainwashed minds to handle, so they block it out and you along with it.

The “truth” is that many things happened before, on and after 9/11 that we have been encouraged – if not programmed – to forget. One is the “Authorization for Use of Military Force” signed into law by Dubya on 18 September 2001 as Public Law 107-40. Allegedly intended to authorize retaliation against the “9/11 terrorists” – and not unlike the 1933 Enabling Act that paved the way for Adolf Hitler to become dictator of Nazi Germany – this brief resolution gave our President carte blanche authority that has been used, abused and expanded over the past 11 years to the point where the “Imperial Presidency” of Barack Obama now claims the power to kill anyone anywhere – including American citizens on American soil – without the approval of Congress, and without due process of law.

That alone should be sufficient reason for We the People to rise up and demand repeal of the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (aka “AUMF 2001”, “AUMF”, or on Twitter “#AUMF”). But the evil of this unconstitutional foundation for a fascist police state doesn’t end there: AUMF 2001 is also the asserted legal basis for Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012 signed into law by Odrona on 31 December 2011 as Public Law 112-81. This “Homeland Battlefield” provision gives the federal government authority to detain without charge and hold indefinitely without trial American citizens on American soil – the same “indefinite detention” applied to prisoners at Guantanamo – which nullifies habeas corpus and overrides the Bill of Rights.

IF WE REPEAL AUMF 2001 WE ALSO UNDO NDAA 2012. Passing and signing into law intact “H.R. 198: Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force” – not to be confused with other H.R. 198’s from prior Congressional sessions – will do just that. And as a not-so-small added benefit, passing H.R. 198 will force the child-murdering Nobel Peace Prize pretender in the White House to bring down his drones and end the perpetual global “War on Terrorism” – which has never been anything more than an excuse for the Military Industrial Complex to deplete the U.S. Treasury, with the costs of war in Afghanistan and Iraq alone approaching $6 trillion, which accounts for over 35% of our national debt and amounts to over $19,000 for every man, woman and child in America.

In TwitterSpeak, all we have to do is pass #HR198 to #RepealAUMF and we reign in the unconstitutional #AUMF #ImperialPresidency, undo #NDAA #IndefiniteDetention, bring down the unacceptably inhumane #drones, end the unaffordably insane #GWOT and force the unimaginably greedy #MilitaryIndustrialComplex to stop depleting an already-drained #USTreasury and running up the #USDebt. Who wouldn’t want to do that?

Just about everybody on Wall Street (Greed Central), K Street (Lobbyist Lane), in Congress (Corporate Fascist Puppets Left and Right) and at the White House (Office of the Corporate Fascist Puppet-in-Chief). That’s who.

Sponsored by Congresswoman Barbara Lee (@RepBarbaraLee) – the only U.S. Representative to vote against AUMF in 2001 – H.R. 198 has only 8 co-sponsors at present and is currently stalled in the House Foreign Affairs Committee (@HFACrepublicans). Pundits give H.R. 198 a zero chance of passage and here is why:

  • The Democratic Party doesn’t want to repeal AUMF 2001 because it will take away power that their figurehead leader Barack Obama is fighting Chris Hedges et al in federal court to keep.
  • The Republican Party doesn’t want to repeal AUMF 2001 because they get to cash in on that power when they rotate back into the White House. And it truly is a staged rotation: of the last 14 U.S. Presidents 7 have been Democrats and 7 Republicans.
  • Lockheed-Martin and the other corrupt fat cat defense contractors comprising the rotten core of the Military Industrial Complex don’t want to repeal AUMF 2001 because ending our endless wars will cost them trillions in future revenues. Their legions of lobbyists stand to lose big bucks as well.
  • Bankers on Wall Street and worldwide thrive on interest. Interest is generated by debt. More debt means more interest. And as the tally about reflects, nothing creates more debt faster than war: debt to make the weapons, debt to buy the weapons, debt to wage the war, and debt to recover from war’s awful toll of death and destruction. Like all wars, the War on Terrorism is a bankers’ war. Obviously the banksters would not want to see it ended by the passage of H.R. 198 and repeal of AUMF 2001.

The “truth” is that the real target of the post 9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force was not Osama Bin Laden, Al Qaeda or any other “terrorists” real or contrived. The real target of the post 9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force was and is YOU, the American citizen and taxpayer. There are only two ways to take yourself out of the crosshairs:

  1. Join us in the AUMF Hunger Strike (#AumfHungerStrike) to (a) awaken 100 million Americans now living in poverty and as many of the self-absorbed and techno-stupefied Sheeple as we can, and (b) inspire them to take direct action to demand action by their Senators and Representives to pass H.R. 198 over the cries of the war profiteers and their lobbyists as well as an almost certain veto by Odrona; or
  2. Do what you know Thomas Jefferson would recommend we do…

Trapwire: Spying On YOU. Predicting YOUR Moves.

TrapWire: If You SEE Something SMASH Something!

Ignored by corporate media, Wikileaks has exposed a CIA-linked Orwellian thoughtcrime surveillance network that goes far beyond “suspicious activity reporting”.

)(

TRAPWIRE: SPYING ON YOU. PREDICTING YOUR MOVES.

“Hacked emails from the private intelligence firm Stratfor shed light on a global suspicious activity surveillance system called TrapWire that is reportedly in use in locations around the world from the London Stock Exchange to the White House. The emails [released by WikiLeaks] provide information on the extent and operations of a system designed to correlate suspicious activity reports and other evidence that may indicate [a potential crime or terrorist attack].”

https://publicintelligence.net/unravelling-trapwire/

A TrapWire white paper describes their offering as “a unique, predictive software system designed to detect patterns of pre-attack surveillance. As such, TrapWire represents the basis for a paradigm shift in the methodologies traditionally applied to securing critical infrastructure and personnel; a paradigm shift from the currently accepted and widely adopted philosophy of damage mitigation through increased physical security to a new and proactive approach of attack prevention through the identification and disruption of pre-attack planning and surveillance activities.”

http://www.cicc.org/pdf/TRAPWIRE_Whitepaper_generic.pdf

In other words, TrapWire is for all intents and purposes an Orwellian thoughtcrime detection system. As their website explains, “TrapWire detects, analyzes and alerts on suspicious events as they are collected over periods of time and across multiple locations. Through the systematic capture of these pre-attack indicators, terrorist or criminal surveillance and pre-attack planning operations can be identified… There are currently three different TrapWire systems available for public and private sector clients:

  • TW-CI (TrapWire Critical Infrastructure) focuses on the identification of pre-operational surveillance activities occurring around specific sites within the TrapWire Network
  • TW-CM (TrapWire Community Member) supports the online reporting of suspicious behavior by community members, such as the iWatch programs in Los Angeles and Washington DC, and See Something Say Something in Las Vegas and New York</li?
  • TW-LE (TrapWire Law Enforcement) provides the ability to gather, analyze and disseminate information about surveillance and logistical activities occurring across an entire geographic region, including information gathered via TW CI and TW CM deployments”

http://www.trapwire.com/trapwire.html

TrapWire Inc. is a subsidiary of Abraxas Corporation, which founder and CEO Richard Hollis Holms claims to be the “largest aggregate of analytical counter-terrorism capabilities outside of the U.S. Government.” A former (?) company man himself, Helms may be implying here that only the CIA has more CIA operatives on the payroll than he does. TrapWire is no exception, as former (?) CIA operatives on staff there include among others:

  • Robert Daniel Botsch, President
  • Michael Thomas Maness, Director of Business Development
  • Michael K. Chang, Director of Operations

TrapWire took down their Who We Are and Management web pages after the Wikileaks disclosures gave them apparently unwanted public attention, but here are some screenshots and supplementary information:

http://trapwire.com/

http://www.abraxascorp.com/

Speaking of being taken down, Wikileaks suffered a major DDOS (distributed denial of service) attack shortly after the TrapWire releases were posted. According to one observer:

‘Now we have something new a group called AntiLeaks has popped up and managed to drop a 10GB/s + DDoS attack on WikiLeaks, their affiliate sites and mirrors. This is something pretty spectacular when you think about it. The group claims to be a group of “young adults, citizens of the United States of America and are deeply concerned about the recent developments with Julian Assange and his attempt at asylum in Ecuador”, but their tactics and capabilities seems to indicate something more is going on here… Some of the emails leaked indicate that Trapwire has extended beyond its original scope of threat prediction and mitigation into more intrusive areas. This is the type of information that Stratfor, the US Government and of course Abraxas would not want to be public. Some of the data the system is collecting could actually be in violation of privacy laws (as well as potentially violating a few other surveillance laws). You can imagine that with the connection to Stratfor and the US Government Abraxas has there would be some high-level interest in keeping these emails from the public eye. Again this would seem to put the attacks outside the realm of “young adults” and more into the state or corporate sponsored arena.’

I agree. I think Ben Doernberg would as well:

http://storify.com/bendoernberg/test-post/

TrapWire and/or “unknown parties” may have taken down Wikileaks in reaction to Julian Assange’s fearless and peerless team shedding the light of Truth on their dark activities, but sadly what they DIDN’T take down is the “TrapWire ThoughtCrime Detection Network” itself. If you work for one of fascist Amerika’s 16 national security bureaucracies or their myriad “intelligence contractors”, or if you’re one of the thousands of LEOs and collaborators participating in the DHS National Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative (NSI) – or “Nasi” for short – you’re probably logging in right now:

Depopulation

Depopulation

A poem in protest of the ongoing worldwide population reduction agenda of the ruling global fascist elite kleptocracy…

DEPOPULATION
by IronBoltBruce

)(

I thought it was all about money
And the power that it buys;
But it’s about a depleted planet
And with what who survives.

It’s simple mathematics,
Dividing what by who;
They can’t make more resources,
But they can make less of you.

Forget the genocide of Third World
Warlords, U.S. trained;
It’s nothing next to body counts
For corporations’ gain.

Depopulation: Fighting unjust wars
Where suicide
Takes more of best and bravest than
Those lost to other side.

)(

Depopulation: Firing drones
Puts innocents at risk,
And from those terrorized will come
Next wave of terrorists.

Depopulation: Fracking earth
With biocides that spoil
The water in our aquifers:
High price for gas and oil.

Depopulation: Filling air
With carcinogens that kill;
Those who survive to sterilize
By design, against their will.

Depopulation: Flooding seas
With wastes they can’t degrade;
Toxins poison source of life
‘Til life no more is made.

)(

Depopulation: Financing
Both sides of “War on Drugs”;
With CIA as pusher man
And DEA-armed thugs.

Depopulation: Feigning
Homosexual approbation;
Stealthfully engendering
Voluntary sterilization.

Depopulation: Fattening up
The tech-sedated masses
With GMO: Accelerating
Aging as it passes.

Depopulation: Fragmenting
Have-Nots to Left and Right;
Against elite assassins
Never able to unite…

NDAA 2012 Update: Odrona Demands Dismissal Of Section 1021 Injunction

Odrona The Indefinite Detainer NDAA

Corporate puppet and wannabe fascist dictator Barack Obama aka Bushbama aka Bushbamney wants to keep the power to make you disappear asserted in AUMF 2001.

NDAA 2012 UPDATE: ODRONA DEMANDS DISMISSAL OF SECTION 1021 INJUNCTION

“Dissent without civil disobedience is consent.”-Henry David Thoreau

In the case of Christopher Hedges et al v. Barack Obama et al (Case 1:12-cv-00331-KBF) the fascist regime of corporate puppet president Barack Bushbamney Odrona just filed its brief in opposition to a permanent injunction against the indefinite detention of American citizens without charge or trial provisions of Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA 2012|Public Law 112–81), which passed both houses of Congress with broad bipartisan – as in both Democratic and Republican – support before being signed into law by Obama last New Year’s Eve while you were out celebrating and he was in Hawaii and a safe distance away from the protest you never made. Their Preliminary Statement reads as follows:

)(

Defendants Barack Obama,Leon Panetta, and the Department of Defense (collectively, the “government”) respectfully submit this memorandum in opposition to plaintiffs’ request for a permanent injunction against the operation of a portion of section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, Pub. L. 112-81, 125 Stat. 1298 (Dec. 31, 2011) (the “NDAA”), and in support of the government’s request that the Court enter final judgment in its favor.

Plaintiffs present a truly extraordinary claim in this action. They seek to enjoin the operation of a statute enacted by Congress and signed into law by the President, a statute that codifies a longstanding Executive military-detention authority that has been upheld by the courts, and therefore enjoys the endorsement of all three branches of the government. While that alone would be an ambitious endeavor, plaintiffs reach even further, and claim that they, as journalists and activists, may obtain an injunction to invalidate the statute on its face, to apply worldwide, and, most unusually, to prohibit certain uses of the military detention authority exercised by the United States and the Commander-in-Chief during an ongoing armed conflict. Any one of those facts should cause extreme hesitation by the Court; taken together, they require the most exacting scrutiny to ensure that if the judicial power is to be exercised in such a far-reaching manner it is clearly within the Court’s jurisdiction to do so. Yet plaintiffs cannot come close to establishing that jurisdiction, as they cannot carry their burden of demonstrating even the basic elements of standing. They claim they fear military detention, based on an erroneous interpretation of the statute that would extend its scope in direct contradiction of the statute’s words, and with no regard for the context that gives it meaning. They persist in asserting that interpretation even though it is contravened by over a decade of history; they cannot point to a single example of the military’s detaining anyone for engaging in conduct even remotely similar to the type of expressive activities they allege could lead to detention. And they continue to seek unprecedented injunctive relief despite already obtaining assurance from the government in this case that based on their allegations they are not detainable under this statute. Plaintiffs therefore have fallen far short of meeting their burden to show they have been injured by the statute; their complaints are the types of generalized grievances of allegedly unlawful government conduct that have been repeatedly held insufficient to support standing.

Even if plaintiffs had some cognizable injuries, those harms would not be redressed by an injunction against section 1021; as plaintiffs themselves acknowledge, such an injunction would have “nil” effect, for the government would continue to possess the identical detention authority under the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force. Plaintiffs thus would achieve no meaningful relief from the injunction they seek, and lack standing for that reason as well. Because plaintiffs lack standing, this Court need not (and must not) unnecessarily decide the constitutional questions plaintiffs present.

If it were necessary to reach the merits, plaintiffs’ claims would fail. Their facial and overbreadth challenges, if even appropriate in this context, founder on the indisputable fact that section 1021 has a plainly legitimate sweep that dwarfs the purported infringement on free expression; indeed, the statute is not even aimed at speech or expressive conduct. Nor is the statute unconstitutionally vague: it does not prohibit any conduct and therefore is not even subject to vagueness analysis. Even if it were it would still be valid, as its meaning as informed by context is more than clear enough to meet constitutional standards. All of plaintiffs’ claims on the merits fail, but in particular none of their theories can come close to justifying the invalidation of the non-punitive war-time authority that Congress affirmed in section 1021.

For all those reasons, the Court should enter judgment for the government.

Dissent Without Permission: Will Protest Permits & Free Speech Zones Halt Or Hasten Rebellion?

Dissent Without Permission | Protest Permits | Free Speech Zones

“Dissent without permission” may sound like Orwellian doublespeak, but for Chinese, Russians, Americans and others it’s a criminal offense. Will that backfire?

IN CHINA, “protesting” without a permit – which defines and limits where, when and how you are allowed to “protest” – is punishable by stiff fines and/or imprisonment for several years:

And that’s nothing compared to what you’ll find in this 2012 Human Rights Watch World Report for China, e.g. “…unnerved by the pro-democracy Arab Spring movements and a scheduled Chinese leadership transition in October 2012, the government launched the largest crackdown on human rights lawyers, activists, and critics in a decade. The authorities also strengthened internet and press censorship, put the activities of many dissidents and critics under surveillance, restricted their activities, and took the unprecedented step of rounding up over 30 of the most outspoken critics and ‘disappearing’ them for weeks.”

And that’s nothing compared to what you’ll find in this 2012 Human Rights Watch World Report for Russia, e.g. “Harassment of human rights defenders continues and the working climate for civil society organizations and activists remains hostile… Human rights defenders are vulnerable to harassment and violent attack, and those working in the North Caucasus are especially at risk… The right to freedom of assembly remains problematic in Russia, where police frequently disperse public rallies held by civil society activists and the political opposition. Police use excessive force and arbitrarily detain peaceful protesters…”

THERE ARE DIFFERENCES between the rights and privileges accorded to citizens of China, Russia and the USA, but those differences are rapidly dwindling in both number and degree. Thanks to institutional indoctrination and decades of sophisticated mental manipulation by an elite-controlled mainstream media – now reinforced by covert and overt pressures to conform with carefully-crafted norms programmed into social media for projection in real life – the American Sheeple can no longer distinguish the liberties of democracy from the favoritism of fascism. They’ve been fattened up with junk food and GMO, and had the fight bred right out of them. They don’t care anymore about freedom; they just want a comfortable cell. If that were not the case then the 99% – or at least the 46 million Americans who now live in poverty – would be asking questions like these:

  • Are free speech zones most effective as soapboxes, or censorship?
  • Is a demonstration in a free speech zone an effective protest?
  • Does a demonstration with a parade permit create a disruption?
  • Does a protest that creates no disruption get any attention?
  • Does a protest that gets no attention make any difference?

I recently heard a talking head say police states allow a certain amount of open protest to serve as a pressure relief valve to avoid open rebellion, and that the Occupy Movement has been tolerated to the extent it has primarily for that purpose. But before being assassinated by the ‘magic bullet’ of ‘lone gunman’ Lee Harvey Oswald in 1963, John F. Kennedy said “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

They can’t both be right…

HEADS UP FOR TWITTER USERS…

Apparently tweeting the truth about greedy corporations or corrupt politicians is all it takes to get yourself censored on Twitter. Since our recent unrelated disclosures that (a) eating a bowl of Cheerios is no more “heart healthy” than eating a bowl of dirt ( http://bit.ly/zDYa45 ) and (b) many American Bikers suffer from Sensenbrenner Syndrome ( http://bit.ly/MBBIBQ ), tweets from @VVVPR are being blocked from the Twitter search stream. If you are a Twitter user, we ask you to tweet @Support and demand they respond to ticket #5626282 and end their spineless censorship of @VVVPR.

…AND A QUESTION ABOUT THE COLORADO BATMAN THEATER SHOOTING:
