Battlefield America _ U.S. Citizens Face Indefinite Military Detention in Defense Bill Before Senate (from Democracy Now)

Battlefield America _ U.S. Citizens Face Indefinite Military Detention in Defense Bill Before Senate (from Democracy Now) (click here to find out about this grave issue)

The Senate is set to vote this week on a Pentagon spending bill that could usher in a radical expansion of indefinite detention under the U.S. government. A provision in the National Defense Authorization Act would authorize the military to jail anyone it considers a terrorism suspect — anywhere in the world — without charge or trial. The measure would effectively extend the definition of what is considered the military’s “battlefield” to anywhere in the world, even within the United States. Its authors, Democratic Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan and Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, have been campaigning for its passage in a bipartisan effort. But the White House has issued a veto threat, with backing from top officials including Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and FBI Director Robert Mueller. “This would be the first time since the McCarthy era that the United States Congress has tried to do this,” says our guest, Daphne Eviatar of Human Rights First, which has gathered signatures from 26 retired military leaders urging the Senate to vote against the measure, as well as against a separate provision that would repeal the executive order banning torture. “In this case, we’ve seen the administration very eagerly hold people without trial for 10-plus years in military detention, so there’s no reason to believe they would not continue to do that here. So we’re talking about indefinite military detention of U.S. citizens, of lawful U.S. residents, as well as of people abroad.” [Includes rush transcript] (source: http://www.democracynow.org/2011/11/29/battlefield_america_us_citizens_face_indefinite)

Senators Demand the Military Lock Up American Citizens in a “Battlefield” They Define as Being Right Outside Your Window

While nearly all Americans head to family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, the Senate is gearing up for a vote on Monday or Tuesday that goes to the very heart of who we are as Americans. The Senate will be voting on a bill that will direct American military resources not at an enemy shooting at our military in a war zone, but at American citizens and other civilians far from any battlefield — even people in the United States itself.

Senators need to hear from you, on whether you think your front yard is part of a “battlefield” and if any president can send the military anywhere in the world to imprison civilians without charge or trial.

Mourir d’aimer (to die of love): Charles Aznavour


Les parois de ma vie sont lisses
Je m’y accroche mais je glisse
Lentement vers ma destinée:
Mourir d’aimer

Tandis que le monde me juge
Je ne vois pour moi qu’un refuge
Toutes issues m’étant condamnées:
Mourir d’aimer

Mourir d’aimer
De plein gré s’enfoncer dans la nuit
Payer l’amour au prix de sa vie
Pêcher contre le corps mais non contre l’esprit

Laissant le monde à ses problèmes
Les gens haineux face à eux-mêmes
Avec leurs petites idées:
Mourir d’aimer

Puisque notre amour ne peut vivre
Mieux vaut en refermer le livre
Et plutôt que de le brûler:
Mourir d’aimer

Partir en redressant la tête
Sortir vainqueur d’une défaite
Renverser toutes les données:
Mourir d’aimer

Mourir d’aimer
Comme on le peut de n’importe quoi
Abandonner tout derrière soi
Pour n’emporter que ce qui fut nous, qui fut toi

Tu es le printemps, moi l’automne
Ton coeur se prend, le mien se donne
Et ma route est déjà tracée:
Mourir d’aimer,
Mourir d’aimer,
Mourir d’aimer.

Paramilitary Policing From Seattle to Occupy Wall Street (from The Nation)


Paramilitary Policing From Seattle to Occupy Wall Street (from The Nation)
Paramilitary Policing From Seattle to Occupy Wall Street (from The Nation) (click here to read the very imortant article)

They came from all over, tens of thousands of demonstrators from around the world, protesting the economic and moral pitfalls of globalization. Our mission as members of the Seattle Police Department? To safeguard people and property—in that order. Things went well the first day. We were praised for our friendliness and restraint—though some politicians were apoplectic at our refusal to make mass arrests for the actions of a few.

About the Author

Norm Stamper
Norm Stamper was chief of the Seattle Police Department during the WTO protests in 1999. He is the author of Breaking…
 

Then came day two. Early in the morning, large contingents of demonstrators began to converge at a key downtown intersection. They sat down and refused to budge. Their numbers grew. A labor march would soon add additional thousands to the mix.

“We have to clear the intersection,” said the field commander. “We have to clear the intersection,” the operations commander agreed, from his bunker in the Public Safety Building. Standing alone on the edge of the crowd, I, the chief of police, said to myself, “We have to clear the intersection.”

Why?

Because of all the what-ifs. What if a fire breaks out in the Sheraton across the street? What if a woman goes into labor on the seventeenth floor of the hotel? What if a heart patient goes into cardiac arrest in the high-rise on the corner? What if there’s a stabbing, a shooting, a serious-injury traffic accident? How would an aid car, fire engine or police cruiser get through that sea of people? The cop in me supported the decision to clear the intersection. But the chief in me should have vetoed it. And he certainly should have forbidden the indiscriminate use of tear gas to accomplish it, no matter how many warnings we barked through the bullhorn.

This article was written and published before the peeper spray dehumanizing action at UC DAVIS, and it only support this experience retired police chief take on the reality of the mindset of the authorities regarding the social, not politically associated movement for justice and peace!

It is interesting to revisit, the statements made by the official in charge of riot suppression, in the light of the US Davis campus abuse of children rights to petition for social, political and economical justice in the United States, rights not only violated, but to which there are no dialogue, concessions, discussion, as if we, the citizens are not represented by anybody. The actions of the Campus police of the Uc Davis, is clear declaration of the mindset of the officials regarding the petition for justice.

Leonard Cohen: The Bucher


The Bucher, by Leonard Cohen

I came upon a butcher,
he was slaughtering a lamb,
I accused him there
with his tortured lamb.
He said, “Listen to me, child,
I am what I am
and you, you are my only son.”

Well, I found a silver needle,
I put it into my arm.
It did some good,
did some harm.
But the nights were cold
and it almost kept me warm,
how come the night is long?

I saw some flowers growing up
where that lamb fell down;
was I supposed to praise my Lord,
make some kind of joyful sound?
He said, “Listen, listen to me now,
I go round and round
and you, you are my only child.”

Do not leave me now,
do not leave me now,
I’m broken down
from a recent fall.
Blood upon my body
and ice upon my soul,
lead on, my son, it is your world.

Leonard Cohen – The old revolution


The Old Revolution, by Leonard Cohen

I finally broke into the prison,

I found my place in the chain.
Even damnation is poisoned with rainbows,
all the brave young men
they’re waiting now to see a signal
which some killer will be lighting for pay.

Into this furnace I ask you now to venture,
you whom I cannot betray.

I fought in the old revolution
on the side of the ghost and the King.
Of course I was very young
and I thought that we were winning;
I can’t pretend I still feel very much like singing
as they carry the bodies away.

Into this furnace I ask you now to venture…

Lately you’ve started to stutter
as though you had nothing to say.
To all of my architects let me be traitor.
Now let me say I myself gave the order
to sleep and to search and to destroy.

Into this furnace I ask you now to venture…

Yes, you who are broken by power,
you who are absent all day,
you who are kings for the sake of your children’s story,
the hand of your beggar is burdened down with money,
the hand of your lover is clay.

Into this furnace I ask you now to venture…

True Love Leaves No Traces: Leonard Cohen’s Album: Death of a Ladies’ Man (1977)


As the mist leaves no scar
On the dark green hill
So my body leaves no scar
On you and never will
Through windows in the dark
The children come, the children go
Like arrows with no targets
Like shackles made of snow

True love leaves no traces
If you and I are one
It’s lost in our embraces
Like stars against the sun
As a falling leaf may rest
A moment on the air
So your head upon my breast
So my hand upon your hair

And many nights endure
Without a moon or star
So we will endure
When one is gone and far

True love leaves no traces
If you and I are one
It’s lost in our embraces
Like stars against the sun

It seems that what embarasses more the perpetrator is  fear of being found out, which in turn brings about (at least) ridicule.  One reason for the ever increasing cost of educations is so that we, the tax payers provide for the cops, riot gear, special training, batons, bullets and pepper spray. Of course everybody has to be armed to the teeth, and then feel threatened by unarmed,unprotected school goers).

  

Sandra Lerner


Why Sandra Lerner,  you’re going to ask? Because she represents the story of success after the system she believed in fired her from the company she started: Cisco Systems. Everybody who put foot in a computer store, heard of the company,  almost everybody who uses a router. Her creation was taken away from her,  in this asphalt jungle where there is only God is GREED. She had the financial opportunity to start a line of cosmetics, with a clear symbolic name: “Urban Decay Cosmetics”, clearly stating the mindset in which the system she believed in let her down. But her call of the land, her beginning in a farm, her love for farm animals, including horses, and turkeys, the simple call of the land, saved her from the urban decay, as she purchased and started a new life, on her farm, where she get to imitate the language of the turkey, where she raises the animals, away from the lucrative food industry with all its nasty secrets. She confesses that her turkeys run more expensive than the food industry’s. But it is the quality of the feed, the lack of pesticides, tryptophan, salt, antibiotics, and who knows what else they staff in them turkeys today, that makes hers a more expensive treat.

I was very impressed by her story, as I happened to watch it on some TV station, so I said to myself that her story of hope can now, more than ever make others  think more about their lives, and the social standards that we allowed to run them.

Sandra Lerner and Home Farm and Store

Sandra Lerner and Home Farm and Store (click here to find out more about the farm)


Ms. Lerner primarily resides at her 800-acre (3.2 km2) estate, Ayrshire Farm in Upperville, Virginia that she acquired in 1996. The circa-1912, 42-room Edwardian-style mansion of native fieldstone has since been restored and is used for a variety of social functions under Sandy’s direction.[3]

Ayrshire Farm’s mission is to farm sustainably and profitably, promoting the benefits of locally produced, humanely-raised meats and organic produce to the consumer, the community, and children through education, outreach and example. The farm sells its products online and locally from The Home Store in Middleburg, Virginia. Sandy also owns the Hunter’s Head Tavern in Upperville, Virginia

Campus Police Chief Put on Leave in Pepper Spray Incident (From The New York Times)

Campus Police Chief Put on Leave in Pepper Spray Incident (From The New York Times)
Campus Police Chief Put on Leave in Pepper Spray Incident (From The New York Times) (click here to read more about this outrageous treatment of out young generation)

The University of California was established in 1868, and moved its first campus to Berkeley in 1873. The San Francisco and Los Angeles campuses followed in 1873 and 1919, respectively. The original UCPD department at Berkeley was founded after World War I. In September 1947, the Regents of the University of California established UCPD as a state law-enforcement agency.

 Authority and jurisdiction

The UCPD is one of several police agencies in California having a state-wide jurisdiction and authority (other examples include the California Highway Patrol, the California State University Police Department, and the California Department of Fish and Game). UCPD officers, like most California police officers, are empowered by section 830.2(b) of the California Penal Code, giving them authority as duly sworn peace officers throughout the state of California.[1] As specified by Section 92600 of the California Education Code, their primary jurisdiction extends to the campuses and properties owned by the Regents of the University of California, as well as lands within a one-mile (1.6 km) radius of those campuses.[2]

Organization

The department consists of ten departments (one for each UC campus),[3] each led by its own chief of police. Unlike other police departments in the state, there is no single chief of the UCPD, however one chief is selected as the department’s central coordinator (currently Chief Pamela E. Roskowski of UCSF). The coordinator is responsible for compiling crime statistics from each campus, as required by the Clery Act, and for ensuring that the various departments are operating within the UCPD’s mission. However, the coordinator does not dictate the day-to-day operations of the department, and each department sets its own Standard Operating Policies.
