Appeals Court Says NSA Can Keep Trampling 4th Amendment With Phone Surveillance Program For Now

Appeals court overturned the NSA ruling from earlier this week. The government will continue its out of control unconstitutional abuses, spying on everyone without a warrant.

This is hardly a surprise, but the DC Appeals Court has issued a stay on Judge Richard Leon’s ruling from earlier this week that the NSA’s bulk phone record collection program was unconstitutional. This is the same appeals court that overturned Leon’s earlier rulingfinding the program unconstitutional. This time, as we noted, Judge Leon refused to grant the government a stay, noting that the DC Circuit had taken its sweet time in actually issuing a ruling on the appeal — and the program is set to end in a couple weeks anyway.

Fascism is corporatism, according to none other than Benito Mussolini. He had a handle on what fascism is. Better understanding than you do, anyway.

Here is another example of fascism here in the US. Toxic chemical manufacturers are allowed to “report” the risks themselves (lie about).

Because Homeland Security Allows Chemical Plants to Self-Report Toxic Releases, 44% are Wrong

The GAO report (pdf) estimated that more than 2,700 of the estimated 6,400 facilities, or 44%, misreported the Distance of Concern.

Cinéma Engagé: Filmmaker Chronicles Texas Fracking Wars

Several documentaries by Garrett Graham showcase the battle between citizens and the mega-corruption of the corporate state. This is a fight against fascism, essentially, and you can guess which side is winning.

There is a war raging against your right to know what you and your children are eating, how it was altered genetically, and how to avoid it.

The federal government is attempting to stop states and localities from regulating these experimental foods, which are released to the public without any long term or independent testing at all. They are tested by the corporations and voluntarily reported to the government under the fraudulent assumption that they are safe, because it’s up to the rest of us to prove their science experiments are unsafe. This Alice in Wonderland system of high risk corporate coddling is protected by the corrupt congress, which has gone out of its way to bring us toward a state of fascism, on this and on other crucial issues (such as the surveillance state).

GMO Labeling Laws Ditched: The Passage of the DARK Act Shows the Arrogance of US Politicians

In particular, the DARK Act – if passed by the Senate and signed into law by Obama – will:

  • Preempt State and local laws regarding the production and sale of GMO crops, not just the labeling of GMO foods;

  • Eliminate “GMO-Free” zones;

  • Unfairly burden traditional farmers and food producers to label their food as “GMO-free,” requiring certification from the pro-GMO USDA;

  • Further muddy the food definition of “Natural,” allowing companies to make “natural” claims on packaging even if the food contains GMOs; and

  • Allow dairy products from animals fed bioengineered foods and foods developed using bioengineered processing aids or enzymes to still be labeled as non-bioengineered.

Buy Organic… while you still can.

Is Google now an arm of the U.S. State Department?

On 3/18/15 we received a note from Google Adsense informing us that all ads for our site had been disabled. Why? Because of this page showing the horrific abusescommitted by U.S. troops in Iraq at Abu Ghraib.

This page has been up for 11 years. During all that time Google Adsense has been running ads on our site – but as Washington gets ready to re-invade Iraq, and in bombing, killing, and abusing more civilians, they suddenly decide that their “anti-violence” policy, which prohibits “disturbing material,” prohibits any depiction of violence committed by the U.S. government and paid for with your tax dollars. This page is the third-most-visited page in our history, getting over 2 million page views since it was posted.

Fracking Victim Sued for Defamation After Proving Drinking Water Flammable

The corporations poisoning and contaminating drinking water are suing their victims for talking about it. They should be in prison cells. This is the corporate-state power Mussolini championed.
