3 American youth get jail terms after FBI framed them for bombing

http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2012/11/21/273679/3-us-youth-fr...

Three American youth have been sentenced to prison for an alleged plot to blow up a highway bridge in Cleveland, Ohio, in yet another case of FBI agents deliberately inciting troubled youth to commit terror actions.

In an apparent forced plea bargain, in which government prosecutors intimidated suspects to plead guilty to avoid a harsher sentence, the three Americans were sentenced to prison on Tuesday by a federal judge.

Vulture Capitalism — Not Unions — Killed Twinkies

Hedge funds took profits and piled on millions in debt at Hostess. They created this bankruptcy, not unions

By Jake Blumgart | Salon.com

As Hostess moved to end its operations last week — a bankruptcy judge asked the company Monday to try mediation with its unions; those talks are scheduled to begin today — commentators were eager to blame the rigidity of unions.

But the story is far more complicated than that — and in some ways, the exact opposite of the tale pushed by those on the right. It’s the story of two bankruptcies, hundreds of millions of givebacks from Hostess unions and hundreds of millions of debt piled onto the company by venture capitalists. It’s a story of management that boosted its own salaries, while failing to make agreed payments into workers’ pension funds. And it’s a story of changing tastes and diets.

Texas prepares to nullify TSA, NDAA in showdown of state liberty versus federal tyranny

(NaturalNews) Dissatisfaction is spreading rapidly throughout a very divided nation in the wake of the Nov. 6 elections, as citizens in nearly every state have begun petitioning the federal government to leave the union.

The secession effort is being led by the independence-minded citizens of Texas, with more than 111,000 residents having signed an online petition requesting secession as of this writing.

Lawmakers in Texas are set to respond to a growing wave of discontent with federal authority, as they look set to consider a pair of bills that will set the state on a collision course with Washington.

Let the nullification begin

SAN ANTONIO, Texas —School officials for the Northside Independent School District in San Antonio, Texas, have informed high school student Andrea Hernandez that she will be “withdrawn” from John Jay High School’s Science and Engineering Academy, effective Monday, November 26, because she objects to wearing a name badge signifying participation in the school district’s new “Student Locator Project.” The badges include tiny Radio Frequency Identification (“RFID”) chips that produce a radio signal, enabling school officials to track students’ precise location on school property.

How Mitt Romney Suckered His Fat-Cat Donors

"Contrary to reports, the Romney camp probably wasn't terribly surprised by the election results."

November 19, 2012 | Alternet

The big chin-scratching story in the aftermath of the 2012 campaign is that the Romney-Ryan campaign was “shell-shocked” by its loss to Barack Obama. "I don't think there was one person who saw this coming," a senior adviser to the campaign told CBS . “There's nothing worse than when you think you're going to win, and you don't,” said another. “It was like a sucker punch."

The most likely explanation for that yawning disconnect is that the campaign figured it was better to appear to be entirely clueless about the race than acknowledge that it had been bullshitting its fat-cat donors about Romney's chances of winning in order to keep the cash spigot open.

A Summary of Murray Rothbard’s "Anatomy of the State" by Derrel Walters

Anatomy of the State is a brief but revealing literary expose of government by the famed Austrian economist - Murray Rothbard. The State is examined from a perspective not typically touched upon by mainstream authors concerning such matters. An introductory page adorns the quote:

“The greatest danger to the State is independent intellectual criticism.”
~ Murray N. Rothbard (1926 – 1995)

The following is a summary of Anatomy of the State. Italicized portions that appear in block quote are either direct quotes from the book or from the citation specified in the text.

What the State Is Not

In the most basic sense, the State is an entity that sustains itself by maintaining a monopoly of force over a geographical area and uses that monopoly to extract sustenance from the productive individuals under its rule. The government is not “us.” This is a widespread misconception regarding the nature of the State. “We” are not the government. If “we” were the government, it could be justly rationalized that – “Government debt doesn’t matter because ‘we’ owe it to ourselves” – or – “If the government kills a portion of the population, it is actually an act of suicide. After all, those people were the State.” In a representative democracy, does the tyranny of a majority implicate the minority in the consequences of its actions? For instance, were casual drinkers responsible for the creation of Al Capone and the heinous acts he committed? Presently, are U.S. anti-war activists responsible for the deaths that resulted from the Iraq War? Absolutely not! The State is an organization independent of the individual. The People are not the State! The State is not the People!

Senate Bill Rewrite Lets Feds Read Your e-mail Without Warrants

Where is the outrage!

***Update***

CNET reports Sen. Leahy (D) will not support the exception that includes warrantless access to email data. Don't let your guard down though, I will continue to watch this bill up to the vote. CNET - Leahy scuttles his warrantless e-mail surveillance bill

Proposed law scheduled for a vote next week originally increased Americans' e-mail privacy. Then law enforcement complained. Now it increases government access to e-mail and other digital files.

CNET- A Senate proposal touted as protecting Americans' e-mail privacy has been quietly rewritten, giving government agencies more surveillance power than they possess under current law.

CNET has learned that Patrick Leahy, the influential Democratic chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee, has dramatically reshaped his legislation in response to law enforcement concerns. A vote on his bill, which now authorizes warrantless access to Americans' e-mail, is scheduled for next week.
