Torture Report Special Thanks for hanging with us (pun intended) as we assemble this week's post. We have never seen so much big-time significant stuff come out in one week! From our perch it looks like lots of peeps are NOT going to have a Happy Holiday while others are popping champagne corks (some are the same peeps!). And we don't even have ONE story about the COP20 so see DN! for all those updates on Global Climate Change!
Malloy chatter Anitole78 gives us this snippet from Howard Zinn A Power Governments Cannot Suppress, 2007: "Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders…and millions have been killed because of this obedience…Our problem is that people are obedient allover the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves… (and) the grand thieves are running the country. That’s our problem......... The challenge remains. On the other side are formidable forces: money, political power, the major media. On our side are the people of the world and a power greater than money or weapons: the truth. Truth has a power of its own. Art has a power of its own. That age-old lesson – that everything we do matters – is the meaning of the people’s struggle here in the United States and everywhere. A poem can inspire a movement. A pamphlet can spark a revolution. Civil disobedience can arouse people and provoke us to think, when we organize with one another, when we get involved, when we stand up and speak out together, we can create a power no government can suppress. We live in a beautiful country. But people who have no respect for human life, freedom, or justice have taken it over. It is now up to all of us to take it back."
UPDATE! The mother of 12-year-old Tamir Rice that was just shot by a cop not allowed to ride in the EMT to the hospital with her dying child and had to go to the hospital in the squad car with her 12-year-old daughter the CPD already caught and detained Tamir Rice’s Sister was Handcuffed After His Shooting, Mom Says Tamir Rice’s 14-year-old sister rushed to her brother’s side after finding out the boy had been shot, and upon arriving police officers “tackled” her, handcuffed her and placed Tamir’s sister in a police car with the officer who shot Tamir, her mother and a Rice family attorney disclosed reporters on Monday. The mother of Tamir Rice, Samaria Rice, was also threatened to be arrested after she attempted to charge and yell at the officers “because they wouldn’t let her run to her son’s aid,” she said. ............ the mother remembered the moment she received the news that her youngest of her four children had been shot. “Two little boys came and knocked on my door and said, ‘Police officers just shot your son twice in the stomach,’ ” she said. At first, she didn’t believe them but quickly realized they were telling the truth. “I really thought they was playing, like joking around, but I saw the seriousness in their face, and it scared me,” she said. She ran to the scene, admittedly frantic, and arrived at the same time as an ambulance. Officers wouldn’t let her check on her son, she said, “and then I saw my daughter in the back of a police car, the same one the shooter got out of.” Family attorney Walter Madison said police placed Tamir’s sister in the car with Loehmann. Samaria Rice said she calmed down and asked police to release her daughter. They told her no, she said. Not only would they not release her daughter, but later, she said, they made her choose: Stay with her daughter or accompany her son to a hospital. She chose the latter but was told she couldn’t ride in the back of the ambulance with her son, so she rode in the front seat on the way to the hospital, she said...... WOW! AND Breanna Edwards of TheRoot.com explains Tamir Rice’s Mom Wants a Conviction in Her Son’s Death Samaria Rice, the mother of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who was fatally shot by Cleveland police Nov. 22, is “looking for a conviction” for both of the officers who were on the scene at the time of her son’s death, ABC News reports. ........... In an exclusive interview with ABC, the grieving mother said that she wants the “police [to] be accountable for what they did to my son. I’m looking for a conviction for both of the officers.” ........... The family has also recently filed a wrongful death suit against the city and the two officers involved in Tamir’s shooting death, claiming that the officers acted recklessly and that the police left the little boy on the ground bleeding without medical attention, ABC News notes. In a related story we follow up with Cleveland's Ideastream who reports Cleveland Mayor Jackson says police problems complex, stands by leadership In the wake of last week’s scathing Justice Department review of the Cleveland police, Mayor Frank Jackson says many factors, inside and outside the force, have contributed to problems. Responding to the finding of routine, excessive use of force, Jackson talked about the path to reform during an open discussion with reporters today at City Hall. ideastream’s Joanna Richards reports. .......... The mayor acknowledged problems with the police force, but insisted they did not amount to systemic failure. He stood by the division’s leadership despite calls from demonstrators and a city councilman for firings following the Justice Department review. The mayor also repeatedly questioned whether the department had its facts straight, and said the city is looking into the claims. “We’re just not accepting it because the DOJ said it,” Jackson said. But despite his misgivings about the report, the mayor acknowledged city policing had its flaws. ........ He called the recent shooting death of Tamir Rice by an officer his "worst moment as mayor", and talked about the difficulty of striking a delicate balance between protecting the public and allowing police leeway to protect themselves. Overall, Jackson welcomed reform he says is already underway, and will ramp up under a legal agreement being negotiated with the Justice Department. Listen to the story at the link! Of course we'll keep you posted on updates to these stories! Matt Taibbi at Rolling Stone weighs in with "The crooked math that's going to crash American law enforcement if policies aren't changed" in The Police in America Are Becoming Illegitimate Nobody's willing to say it yet. But after Ferguson, and especially after the Eric Garner case that exploded in New York yesterday after yet another non-indictment following a minority death-in-custody, the police suddenly have a legitimacy problem in this country. Law-enforcement resources are now distributed so unevenly, and justice is being administered with such brazen inconsistency, that people everywhere are going to start questioning the basic political authority of law enforcement. And they're mostly going to be right to do it, and when they do, it's going to create problems that will make the post-Ferguson unrest seem minor. The Garner case was a perfect symbol of everything that's wrong with the proactive police tactics that are now baseline policy in most inner cities. ................. The ostensible goal of Broken Windows is to quickly and efficiently weed out people with guns or outstanding warrants. You flood neighborhoods with police, you stop people for anything and everything and demand to see IDs, and before long you've both amassed mountains of intelligence about who hangs with whom, and made it genuinely difficult for fugitives and gunwielders to walk around unmolested. ................ But the psychic impact of these policies on the massive pool of everyone else in the target neighborhoods is a rising sense of being seriously pissed off. They're tired of being manhandled and searched once a week or more for riding bikes the wrong way down the sidewalk (about 25,000 summonses a year here in New York), smoking in the wrong spot, selling loosies, or just "obstructing pedestrian traffic," a.k.a. walking while black. This is exactly what you hear Eric Garner complaining about in the last moments of his life. "Every time you see me, you want to mess with me," he says. "It stops today!" This is the part white Middle American news audiences aren't hearing about these stories. .............. The press and the people who don't live in these places want you to focus only on the incidents in question. It was technically a crime! Annoying, but he should have complied! His fault for dying – and he was a fat guy with asthma besides! But the real issue is almost always the hundreds of police interactions that take place before that single spotlight moment, the countless aggravations large and small that pump up the rage gland over time. .................This policy of constantly badgering people for trifles generates bloodcurdling anger in "hot spot" neighborhoods with industrial efficiency. And then something like the Garner case happens and it all comes into relief. Six armed police officers tackling and killing a man for selling a 75-cent cigarette. That was economic regulation turned lethal, a situation made all the more ridiculous by the fact that we no longer prosecute the countless serious economic crimes committed in this same city. A ferry ride away from Staten Island, on Wall Street, the pure unmolested freedom to fleece whoever you want is considered the sacred birthright of every rake with a briefcase.
If Lloyd Blankfein or Jamie Dimon had come up with the concept of selling loosies, they'd go to their graves defending it as free economic expression that "creates liquidity" and should never be regulated. Taking it one step further, if Eric Garner had been selling naked credit default swaps instead of cigarettes – if in other words he'd set up a bookmaking operation in which passersby could bet on whether people made their home mortgage payments or companies paid off their bonds – the police by virtue of a federal law called the Commodity Futures Modernization Act would have been barred from even approaching him. There were more cops surrounding Eric Garner on a Staten Island street this past July 17th then there were surrounding all of AIG during the period when the company was making the toxic bets that nearly destroyed the world economy years ago. This is the crooked math that's going to crash American law enforcement if policies aren't changed. .............

AP EXCLUSIVE: Via Bill Hutchison at NYDailynews.com U.S. co-opted Cuba's hip-hop scene in failed attempt to spark unrest in communist nation An Associated Press investigation revealed a secret operation to infiltrate Cuba’s underground hip-hop scene was ill-conceived and put innocent Cubans at risk. A covert U.S. operation to spark a democracy-spreading youth movement in Cuba by infiltrating the country’s underground hip-hop scene ended up a Looney tune. An Associated Press investigation blew the lid off the clandestine mission by the U.S. Agency for International Development, revealing it flopped because it was ill-conceived, reckless and executed by amateurs. Instead of spreading democracy, the mission put innocent Cubans at risk and left unwitting recruits detained and interrogated by Cuban officials. On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) called the operation “just plain stupid,” while U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) deemed it “boneheaded.” .............. Uncovering reams of records, the AP found that USAID repeatedly put innocent Cubans and its own operatives in jeopardy despite warning signs. Authorities detained or interrogated musicians or USAID operatives at least six times, often confiscating their computers and thumb drives, which in some cases contained material linking them to USAID. The missions initial point person, a Serbian music promoter named Rajko Bozic, infiltrated a popular rap group known as Los Aldeanos. But When the Cuban government caught wind of the scheme, Los Aldeanos began facing political pressure and had to emigrate to South Florida. A popular music festival was also banned because of the perception that USAID was pulling the strings for it. So instead of sparking a democratic revolution, it compromised an authentic source of protest that had produced some of the hardest-hitting grassroots criticism since Fidel Castro took power in 1959, an AP investigation found. Of course USAID is not the happy smiley (taxpayer-funded) entity it claims to be USAID Subversion in Latin America Not Limited to Cuba notes Dan Beeton at The Center for Economic and Policy Research. ....... As CEPR Co-Director Mark Weisbrot described in an interview with radio station KPFA’s “Letters and Politics” yesterday [04 April 2014], USAID and OTI in particular have engaged in various efforts to undermine the democratically-elected governments of Venezuela, Bolivia, and Haiti, among others, and such “open societies” could be more likely to be impacted by such activities than Cuba. Declassified U.S. government documents show that USAID’s OTI in Venezuela played a central role in funding and working with groups and individuals following the short-lived 2002 coup d’etat against Hugo Chávez. A key contractor for USAID/OTI in that effort has been Development Alternatives, Inc. (DAI). More recent State Department cables made public by Wikileaks reveal that USAID/OTI subversion in Venezuela extended into the Obama administration era (until 2010, when funding for OTI in Venezuela appears to have ended), and DAI continued to play an important role. ...... and for more background read this item at Longitutde361.com The USAID-CIA consortium in which Obama was raised from 2011 and The Myths of ‘Democracy Assistance’: U.S. Political Intervention in Post-Soviet Eastern Europe by Gerald Sussman at monthlyreview.org from 2006.

Under this rule, banks will have to move these risky trades into separate non-bank affiliates that aren't insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and are less likely to receive government bailouts. The bill would smother the push-out rule in its crib by permitting banks to use government-insured deposits to bet on a wider range of these risky derivatives.

BRICK TEEVEE ACTION!© The 1st Amendment is Our Permit Our permit to occupy is The First Amendment. Quickly sign the following statement which will be delivered to mayors, police chiefs and major media across the country:
- Our permit to occupy public squares and parks is in The First Amendment, which affirms "the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." When people across the Middle East occupied public squares, leaders in Washington mostly cheered those protesters and warned Middle Eastern governments not to use force to clear them. Those other societies don’t have a First Amendment. Yet Washington affirmed the universal right to assembly and protest. We do have a First Amendment. The force being used to clear nonviolent protesters from public squares in our country is unacceptable. It must stop.

NET NEUTRALITY! SaveTheInternet.com Declaration of Internet Freedom Tired of fighting bad bills like SOPA, PIPA and CISPA? Want to stand up against those who are trying to control what we do and say online? It's time for something different. A group of more than 1,500 organizations, academics, startup founders and tech innovators has come together to produce a Declaration of Internet Freedom, a set of five principles that put forward a positive vision of the open Internet. Our goal: Get millions of Internet users to sign on to this Declaration. Build political power for Internet users to make sure that we get a seat at the table whenever, and wherever, the future of the Internet is being decided. It's time to stop playing defense and start going on the offensive. The open Internet is central to people’s freedom to communicate, share, advocate and innovate in the 21st century. But powerful interests want to censor free speech, block the sharing of information, hinder innovation and control how Internet users get online. And all too often, people in power are making political decisions behind closed doors about how the Internet should operate — and they're doing this without the involvement of actual Internet users. The result: policies that could close down the open Internet and destroy our freedom to connect. It’s time for us to reclaim the Internet for its users. Take action now and sign the Declaration of Internet Freedom. ACTION! Tell the FCC: No Frankenstein Net Neutrality The FCC is considering a new plan that has the same big problems we’ve been protesting against all year. Tell the agency we’ll accept nothing less than REAL Net Neutrality. Just how bad is it? This new proposal: • Would allow broadband providers to cut specialized deals with companies to reach Internet users. • Still gives us slow lanes and gives users no real protection against discrimination from Internet service providers. • Rests on shaky legal arguments that won’t stand up in court. This isn't what millions of us have been fighting for. SIGN NOW at Tell Chairman Wheeler: No Frankenstein Net Neutrality at freepress.net NOW.
Stop Media Consolidation! Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski is trying to change the agency’s ownership rules to pave the way for Murdoch to get exactly what he wants. Worse, Genachowski and Murdoch are keeping this all very hush-hush, hoping you won't notice. These changes wouldn’t just benefit Murdoch. If the FCC proposal passes, one company could own the major daily newspaper, two TV stations and up to eight radio stations in your town. And that one company could be your Internet provider, too. What is the FCC thinking?!? We can still stop the agency from taking this perilous step — but we have less than a month to do it.

REPRESENT.US IT’S TIME TO GET MONEY OUT OF POLITICS SO THE GOVERNMENT CAN REPRESENT US. Represent.Us is a fresh campaign to pass the American Anti-Corruption Act: a law that would overhaul campaign finance, impose strict lobbying and conflict of interest laws, and end secret political money. We are mobilizing millions of Americans — conservatives and progressives, young and old, every issue group fighting K Street, online and offline — to join this campaign. Represent.Us is not just building a movement to pass the Act. The campaign will use hard-hitting accountability tactics to unseat politicians who fail to endorse the Act. If passed, the Act will completely reshape American politics and policy-making and give people a voice.

• Bail-In and the Financial Stability Board: The Global Bankers’ Coup by Ellen Brown — On December 11, 2014, the US House passed a bill repealing the Dodd-Frank requirement that risky derivatives be pushed into big-bank subsidiaries, leaving our deposits and pensions exposed to massive derivatives losses. The bill was vigorously challenged by Senator Elizabeth Warren; but the tide turned when Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorganChase, stepped into the ring. Perhaps what prompted his intervention was the unanticipated $40 drop in the price of oil. As financial blogger Michael Snyder points out, that drop could trigger a derivatives payout that could bankrupt the biggest banks. And if the G20’s new “bail-in” rules are formalized, depositors and pensioners could be on the hook......... READ MORE ........
• Fracker down by Stacey Herbert — Stacy Summary: As we’ve warned repeatedly, frackers were losing money at $100/barrel, they’re going bust at $60/barrel. READ Oil price collapse claims WA’s Red Fork Energy, shale gas company in receivership The collapse of the oil price has snared its first West Australian victim with Red Fork Energy losing the support of its major lender. The Perth-based company drills for shale gas in the United States, producing oil and gas. But, it is completely exposed to the US shale gas industry, which analysts say has come unviable at current oil prices. But Bank of America said shale fracking was profitable at even $40!?
• The Shocking Data Proving Shale Oil Is Massively Over-hyped by Peak Prosperity — Hooray, oil is suddenly much cheaper than it used to be. That’s great news, right? Not so fast. For certain it’s not good news for those counting on a continued rise in US oil production from the “shale miracle”. Many drillers were challenged to operate profitably when oil was above $70 per barrel. Very few will remain solvent with oil in the $50s (as it is as of this writing). So, expect US oil production to suffer from these lower prices if they persist. But even if oil prices rise and rise soon, there’s new data that indicates the total amount of extractable oil from America’s shale plays is less — much less — than what we’re being told (or better put, “sold”).

• Welcome to the Recovery – McKinsey Survey Shows 40% of Americans Living Paycheck to Paycheck, Up From 30% in 2012 by Michael Krieger — Nothing screams economic recovery like 2 out of every 5 Americans living paycheck to paycheck. Especially when that number has reportedly increased by 33% since 2012. Perhaps someone should inform these destitute plebs that the stock market is up nearly 45% over the past two years, and after all, nothing says economic success like the 0.01% enriching themselves via fraud and financial engineering… Read the rest HERE.
• KEISER REPORT Keiser Report: Fracking, Fascism & Market Failure We discuss the motto of the modern financial markets: “my word is my bond, but my bond is your problem.” As the yield-chasers have piled into the junk bond market in the past few years of ZIRP, this could spell big trouble for the fracking sector as oil prices plunge. In the second half Max chats to the CEO of Bitpay.com, Stephen Pair. They discuss Foxtrot – a project that hopes to do for networks what bitcoin did for currency – and also about the latest in bitcoin, internet 2.0 and regulations.
• KEISER REPORT [KR691] Keiser Report: Real Reasons behind UK Porn Law We look at the ‘death eaters’ and ‘deglobalizers’ longing for suffering by ordinary people, especially if the ruling elite can’t be the guaranteed winners. They look at currency crises due to balance of payments and deglobalization and those cheering it on. In the second half Max interviews Itziar Bilbao Urrutia – aka Ms Tytania – about the new ban on certain female acts in porn and the real reason behind the ban being censorship and fear of another Wikileaks or Snowden. Max also suggests if Westminster wants to help children, they should stop harming them first.
• KEISER REPORT [KR692] Keiser Report: Debt Meteor Approaching Earth We believe that ‘something’s gotta give’ as the real world continues to tumble while equity markets continue rising – and not everyone is ‘lovin’ it.’ We also compare the debt curse to the oil curse. In the second half, Max interviews equity crowdfunding pioneer, Simon Dixon of BankToTheFuture.com, about the latest in CrowdFunding 2.0 as both the political and financial space is disinter mediated.
- The Scott Horton Radio Show
Scott Horton is host of Antiwar Radio on Pacifica 90.7 FM KPFK in Los Angeles and KUCR 88.3 in Riverside, and the Scott Horton Show on No Agenda Radio. (You can listen live Monday through Friday New show hours effective 5/26/2014 @ 12-3 PM Eastern! HERE.) Plenty of archives too!
• Scott Horton Radio Show Progress Report: All right, yall, welcome back to the show to the inaugural Scott Horton Show progress report! It’s been an eventful year since the show and I (amicably) parted ways with Antiwar.com, so I thought I would highlight just a few of the show’s important milestones, as well as preview some of the exciting projects to look for in the near future. ........ The show on Pacifica KPFK 90.7 FM in L.A., still called Antiwar Radio, has now moved to join their Sunday morning public affairs line up (8:30 am pt - http://kpfk.org), and remains the largest source of listeners, with 15,000-20,000 people tuning in weekly. The future: Liberty Express Radio is growing and bringing me along for the ride. The great Charles Goyette hooked me up with Alan Butler and the Liberty Express earlier this year, and what has been the daily replay there from 3-5 eastern time has become my best listened-to show. And now they’re adding my friend Tom Woods to the lineup from 2-3 PM. That does it. I’m making the switch! Starting Monday, October 14, the live show is moving to 3-5 PM Eastern time on LibertyExpressRadio.com, as well as NoAgenda and my own stream....... New show hours effective 5/26/2014: 12-3 PM Eastern!
• 12/10/14 Marcy Wheeler: Blogger Marcy Wheeler discusses the CIA’s lies about properly vetting their enhanced interrogation program with their Congressional overseers; Dick Cheney’s conspicuous absence from the CIA torture report; and the 9000 CIA documents withheld that likely implicate the Office of Legal Council and Cheney in the torture program.
• 12/10/14 Jonathan Landay: Jonathan Landay, a McClatchy Foreign Staff journalist, discusses his article about the real intent of the Bush administration’s torture program – to lie us into war: “Report: Abusive tactics used to seek Iraq-al Qaida link.”
• 12/11/14 Lawrence Wilkerson: Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, discusses how he helped with Powell’s infamous address to the UN in 2003, making the case for war with Iraq; the behind-the-scenes pressure exerted by Bush administration officials to keep the “garbage intel” linking Iraq and al-Qaeda in Powell’s speech; and Dick Cheney’s effort to hide his criminal behavior behind OLC lawyers and their memos justifying torture.
• 12/12/14 Andrew Cockburn: Andrew Cockburn, author of Rumsfeld: His Rise, Fall, and Catastrophic Legacy, discusses the unholy merger of the Israel lobby and the military-industrial complex; how NATO expansion enriches Lockheed; and his article “Game On: East vs. West, again,” about the renewing Cold War with Russia.
• 12/12/14 Jeffrey Kaye: Jeffrey Kaye, a psychologist active in the anti-torture movement, discusses the CIA-contracted psychologists who largely designed the CIA’s “enhanced interrogation” torture program, and their link to the same CIA department that brought us MKULTRA.
