FREEDOM - FREE SPEECH - PRIVACY = ACLU & LIBRARIANS TEAM UP
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: ACLU and The Patriot Act ~ Libriarians Gag Order Lifted
Topic: CIVIL RIGHTS




So Zebra 3 Readers, when was it that you threw down your civil rights and didn't care anymore? Do you recall being asked to forgo our civil rights?
Well when the Librarians were told to SHUT UP
And when they were "GAGGED" so to speak, about this type of civil rights violations,
They stood up along with the ACLU and fought then as well as "now" for all our rights.
These Patriots "rock" They are My Hero's
Read this surmounting and aspiring link of dedication for civil justice and the freedom to speak and read what we want, in spite of the
NEW NEOCON LAWS that are replacing what we hold true and proud "Our Old Constitution"

**********************************************

"FREE SPEECH"
LIBRARIANS FIGHT FOR ALL OUR RIGHTS IN ONE WEEK:

I am excited to tell you that the ACLU won the right to address "in public" some concerns of the Patriot Act's National Security Letter Provision which next week will be getting challenged in the open public!

The controversial "NSL" provision authorizes the FBI to demand a range of personal records without prior court approval, including records of Web site visits, e-mail addresses, and certain library records. The statute also "gags" anyone served with such a letter from revealing that the FBI sought or obtained information from them.

Well due to this challenge ....The appeals court effectively lifted the gag that prevented Connecticut librarians who received a NSL from disclosing their identities. The gagged librarians will speak publicly about the case for the first time next week. Civil Right are on the March! (MAY 30 2006)

***********************************************

It is a crime to NOT Fight & Kill for the USA Criminal Leaders
Mood:  down
Now Playing: I AIN"T MOVIN !
Topic: WAR




The following excerpt is from the March Issue of the Oregon Peace Works Newspaper by Kevin Benderman
He is currently serving 15-months jail time in a Military Prison for being a
"Conscience Objector"

He opens his letter by stating:
(quote)
"I consider it an honor to be put in prison for standing for what is right and all that I can say to the men responsible is "I feel sorry for you." The reason I feel for them is because they refuse to see the truth, and self-deception is the worse kind."
(end quote)

He goes on to state what I have felt and commented to my Congressmen just last week by my passionately written lengthly letter:
(quote)
But on a larger scale, the American people were lied to by men who care for nothing but their own personal agenda and are willing to abuse the goodwill and patriotism of the American people in order to reach their personal goals. This is not what our founding fathers envisioned for this country. They did not want elected representatives to use fear as a governing tool and they did not want citizens to give over all of their rights to people who would let absolute power corrupt absolutely.
(end quote)

Then Kevin mentions what I also feel strongly is what we citizens can do about it by:

(quote)
I, for one, believe in the Constitution when it says that the ultimate responsibility for ensuring that this country is run correctly lies with the American people and not solely with this government. While we do hire people to do the work of government it is up to us, the citizens, to ensure that they are doing this in accordance with the law of the land.

True freedom requires eternal diligence and it will take everyone doing their share of keeping watch to prevent freedom from slipping out of our hands.
(end quote)

And Finally the sweet reminder that:
(quote)
It is the small things that add up to keep all of us in line. Which brings to mind three small words spoken by a woman who had had enough, "I ain?t movin." The woman was Rosa Parks. We should think about her courage when we feel as if we are too small to matter.

"I ain?t movin." Are you?

--Kevin Benderman,
(end quote)

To send encouragement and thanks for Kevin's stance
please write to the following address:
c/o Benderman Defense Trust, P.O. Box 1122, Knoxville, Tennessee 37901.

385 Million Dollars for Housing Jailed Immigrants
Mood:  irritated
Now Playing: HALLIBURTON CASH'S IN ON INPRISONING MEXICANS
Topic: FAILURE by the GOVERNMENT
Hey Zebra 3 Readers look at ole' Halliburton who just got a 385 Million Dollar contract to build temporary prisons for the INS along the border.
Now does that surprise you any?

Which by the way get used to this new acronym ICE cause thats the new one for these Bad Boys.
A new acronym and some new --> "SUPERJAILS" costing hundreds of millions of dollars and having as many as 2,800 beds. You better be heads up .....Anytime you see mass prison camps being built it is not a good sign.


The following link is from www.Alternet.org

Nationwide, the number of ICE detainees went from 7,444 in 1994 to about 23,000 now; during the same period, the Marshals Service's population more than doubled to an estimated 63,000. Just in the last two years, Congress has authorized 40,000 new ICE beds over the next five years and given the Marshals Service funding for another 4,000 to 5,000. And the President's proposed 2007 budget calls for a $452 million increase in ICE funding, including money for another 6,700 beds.

One of the companies to benefit from the government's building -- and privatizing -- binge is KBR, a Halliburton Co. subsidiary, which in January was awarded a contract worth up to $385 million to build temporary immigrant detention facilities for the Homeland Security Department in case of an "emergency influx of immigrants," according to a KBR press release. The top companies running South Texas detention centers are the Corrections Corp. of America (CCA), GEO Group Inc., and Emerald Correctional Management.

The Office of Detention and Removal, a sub-agency of ICE, calls its 10-year plan "Endgame," the goal of which is to "remove all removable aliens" by 2012, including the 590,000 people who have ignored deportation orders and the 630,000 "criminal aliens" serving sentences in jail or prison at any given time.

The 6,700 new ICE detention beds requested in the 2007 budget represent a much greater number of potential deportees -- that's enough to allow an additional 134,000 people per year to be moved through the system.


- And then I liked this comment on the same link:

Immigration attorneys and advocates have watched with a mixture of amazement and apprehension as the U.S. Attorney's office has increasingly focused on nailing border-crossers. "When I first started practicing immigration law many years ago, the only people that were prosecuted for illegal entry were people who had entered before or people who were doing something else wrong when they were entering," says Barbara Hines, director of the immigration law clinic at the University of Texas Law School. "I think that's really changed -- the people who are being prosecuted [now] are coming for the first time, who have no other criminal record, and they are being prosecuted and serving jail time." Sentences can range from probation to up to 20 years if the individual has an "aggravated felony" on record.

WOW it's not surprising we don't send those captured immigrants to Guantanamo!
This place here in Texas has some news coverage on their "new Business" the prison will be drumming up here real soon due to the immigration arrests.
Here are the last few lines from that article,
Dear Z3 Readers, listen to the tone of this sales pitch for some warm bodies and the general attitude of this unhumanitarian spin. I am ashamed!

(Quote)
The future of CCA's Taylor facility has been in limbo the last several months because of a lack of inmates. During that time, CCA has been marketing the prison actively to use all the available space.
Without any inmates, CCA would have implemented a mothballing plan for the facility, using only a skeleton staff to maintain it so it wouldn't fall into disrepair.
Most recently, the prison housed inmates that had to be relocated from the Gulf Coast as result of hurricanes Rita and Katrina. Prior to that, the facility held prisoners for the U.S. Marshal's Service, and it also held inmates from the overflow at the Williamson County jail.

Open Letter To Congress
Mood:  rushed
Now Playing: Joe Anybody writes to congress
Topic: POLITICS





Dear All Members Of Congress,

I am greatly concerned and upset over the reckless and abusive way our Constitution is being destroyed before our eyes, every day.

I just read where the status of the U.S. Department of Justice probe of the Bush administration's authorization of a warrantless domestic wiretapping program is now closed. The fact the Justice Departments Office of Professional Responsibility has just informed Representative Maurice Hinchey that they were unable to do their investigation because of being denied access by the NSA is a mockery to honest government
I have never been more concerned for this country civil rights, as much as I am feeling right now. That is only surpassed by the passing and heart felt loss many and I felt as the Patriot Act Bill, which was passed and then even re-enacted years latter, as it should have been sunseted. My letter to you is to say I am urging an investigation into any wrongdoing, and to urge you to support by backing Representative Hinchey in his addressing this serious mishandling of our, United States citizens privacy, by a part of the government mind you that is out of control in secrecy and civil rights violations. It is atrociously getting out of hand, as in this obvious violation case there are telecom laws that specifically deal with this exact issue yet these laws mean nothing?

I think in saying I agree with The Senate's chief critic of the spying program, Wisconsin Democrat Russ Feingold, who says that “the latest revelations have raised a range of new concerns about the White House's apparent disregard for the Constitution and specific statutes requiring that a warrant be obtained before tapping into the telephone conversations of Americans on American soil” we are lacking in any means to hold these crimes to be accountable and explained.

These are exactly my concerns and my outrage.
This is not what I expected from our “Elected Leaders.”
I am outraged most by the secrecy of this type of snooping and disregard to democracy and the well-established protocol of our laws and government.
In fact the sneaking around Congress or the FISA laws, with no approval or proper discourse being followed, makes this a crime in my eyes.
I would like it investigated at the least.
I believe we “had a Constitution” and that in the USA our government had a system of check and balances.
I see that Constitution is being destroyed, overwritten, and neglected and almost not even acknowledged.

Not to digress but I am equally ashamed and appalled about the flagrant and blatant abuse and torture of the detainees over seas due to this war.
That being especially but not limited to Abu Grab and also Guantanamo, and many others spread-out through Iraq, and probably even in secret locations too, which is known as rendition, which I am sure you are by now aware of.
And that too is covered up and denied and hidden by the CIA and our military. In Fact a recent report from Amnesty International states that one plane was first registered by a company called Stevens Express Leasing (SEL), then by Premier Executive Transport Services (PETS) and finally in 2004 by Keeler & Tate Management (KTM).
Amnesty says all three firms are front companies set up by the CIA. And are being used in rendition practices.

I am ashamed and outraged over the capture and imprisonment in prisons in Iraq and Cuba, of men and children with no trials
And with reports of prisoners being bought and then sold by gangs to the American Military as a terrorist, with no trial, and then held for years, that is disgraceful, and wrong.
That is not the America I am proud of; this is not how any American is to behave in this world, and I expect my country to act accordingly within the laws of the people..

The reports of humanitarian abuses being discarded with no accountability or military responsibility taken, is shameful and unacceptable.
Yet, as we know horrific actions were done and overlooked by our Forces with but a few, low ranking soldiers to hold all the blame.
In the shadow of this terrible war, I am reminded of Ralph Nader who was warning, “It will quickly become a quagmire”
I write to you now because, I am sickened by all the dead from our invasion.
The people and most innocent civilians, we have killed which is hundreds of thousands.
And “our loved ones that have been killed which is in the thousands”
And all those brave men who fought without even asking, “are you sure?” or didn’t ask why, because they trusted in their leaders
…We owe them the truth.
We owe them to stop this madness they are stuck in,
Where death by suicide or battle is the only way out.
I demand to my government leaders, that this fighting must stop now.

My cousin committed suicide due to this war in Iraq.
He couldn’t stand for what he once was…at one time; he was a proud Honorable US Military Teacher and a Leader from West Point
He was a ranking US Air Force Col,
Who would soon claim from Baghdad, seeing it all first-hand …
Exactly what we were doing there…and he said ……
It was “dishonorable what we were doing over there”

As he said "I cannot support a msn (mission) that leads to corruption, human rights abuse and liars. I am sullied," he says.

"I came to serve honorably and feel dishonored. "Death before being dishonored any more."

He then took his own life on his mother’s birthday,

I know he was disgusted with the US and our honor in this war!
I know I am!

He is not alone; at this very day the suicides amongst US soldiers are rising to high record levels.
My intention when I first started this letter was going to be out of my concern of the NSA spying.
And to bring my support and wish’s as a citizen forward to you
So you too could encourage and support Representative Maurice Hinchey on this constitutional breech.
I don’t like to drag my cousin through my tirade.
But he died because of exactly what I am asking you to try and do
“Please do, all within your power and position, all you can To Stop This War.”


This spying, lying, hiding, and disregard to honesty and forthrightness is a shame to this democracy.
You are in a position to fight for our civil rights like the real patriot we need today.
Like our proud ancestors and freedom fighters did to help build this great country,
You are needed, as they were, to help keep this country proud, safe, honest, and free.
With respect to the rules of the land we all abide in and the laws we all write, vote, and enforce is equal to all.
And that is freedom and justice to all and not just written for a selected few nor can be changed by just a select few.
That this is the “we the people’s laws and land and lives that need respect and protection.”
That is what I am calling on you to defend and protect

You are one, who also represent us the citizens, and I am calling on you to stand against US Military Sponsored Torture that is still happening to this very day!
These are in no-way acceptable conditions for Human prisoners and unacceptable that our leaders allow the military to treat people like they are.
They need trials and just sane treatment. I am appalled at the tactics such as water boarding and many other mind numbing tricks being done, like stress positions, and sensory depravation which are maddening sick tactic that do not work for extracting information but are continually used on prisoners.

And now with the newly added “signage” at the bottom of the Senator McCain’s Torture bill, it reeks with deception and fraud, of the people wishes to stop US led torturing.
Ironically that bill was trumped up as being wanted by Most American Citizens and people from all over the world?
And (finally agreed to by the White House) which seems deplorable on the surface, of them seeming to look and act like they were wanting to prevent the Anti Torture Law from becoming a law so that …they could Torture???
So at the last minute before the bill was signed, the White House had Gonzales insert some small print to “still allow torture during war times to be done by and if the president says it’s ok”
Or reasonable fact simile to that.
Correct me if I am wrong but that was a dirty trick and speaking of Leadership and Honor it is degrading to human rights and truthful government!
A back door to torture and not many are the wiser? How shifty how sneaky!

Spying on American citizens like in this NSA phone violation is one, but there is also medical record spying and library book record spying, and churches are spied on especially in the Muslim communities and the list grows every single day.
Not to mention the absurd spying on those in the peace movement who are non-violent and non-criminal, as in the recent FBI release of FOIA document about the spying on a Catholic priest Father Roy, who has been protesting the atrocities at the School Of Americas Training School and found out there are now files on him ….a priest
Are the main reasons although not the most or only reason I write to you today.

I also write to demand an end to torture and the senseless killing the USA is involved in, from this illegal war we declared by lies and deceit
I write to encourage and call for a restoring of honesty and integrity in our government leadership, where the people are protected and served, not the special interest of a few.
And most importantly “To Protect our Civil Rights from being eroded”
Just like this Great countries leaders did when their fellow citizens called them upon in the 1700’s

Doing so by holding accountable and then investigate, those that have violated what makes this country free and proud.
It goes without saying that I must then mention the crux of our problems today behind most if not allot of all this
I have one more issue that is not to be ignored as this list of issues revolves around this very topic itself.

There needs to be a full investigation in to what really happened on September 11 2001
There are way to many un-answered questions and things that don’t make sense about those planes and buildings, and our defense.
In that, it is all too secret and covered up for me to accept as the real truth,
And once again it’s the catchall word that is being abused and used called “Secrecy” (national security)
We need a real look into the real questions from what happened on that day
There is many questions that are not answered and still not much to this day, is really done for the truth on what really happened and how.
It needs to be fully dealt with …not white washed and covered up.

Thank you for allowing me to contact you
And thank you for any work you may have done on this subject of civil and human rights and this terrible war
And I would like to hear any comments you have back on these issues

PLEASE HELP STOP THE WAR
