law enforcement activities under the USA PATRIOT Act are reminiscent of Hoover’s Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO), which spied on and infiltrated Martin Luther King, Jr., the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, the Congress on Racial Equality, the Black Panthers, anti-war groups, and any other members of the “New Left” (including former Beatle John Lennon). This program was ruled a threat to a free society by the Church Commission in 1976. One notable quote from the Church Commission’s final report seems to have great relevance for today: “… the violent acts of political terrorists can seriously endanger the rights of Americans. Carefully focused intelligence investigations can help prevent such acts. But too often intelligence has lost this focus and domestic intelligence activities have invaded individual privacy and violated the rights of lawful assembly and political expression” (Select Committee to Study Government Operations, 1976).
The Backlash Against the USA PATRIOT Act
the Historical Research Department of the Nation of Islam, based 100% on Jewish (oftentimes rabbinical) and philo-Semitic sources, unequivocally demonstrates that the torturous, inhuman and genocidal Transatlantic Slave Trade was an endeavor dominated by Jews, going back to the very beginnings of it in Brazil and Surinam. Despite a systematic smear campaign still going on to this day, the Jewish-Zionist Power Configuration has failed miserably in refuting the scholarly volumes because of the meticulous sourcing.
Terrorism based on mere facts and statistics is not and never was a factual issue but a political issue transforming America to a police state no different from Israel.
As such the entire shift of the American police doctrine from fighting common ground to fighting terrorism is ill advised and ill founded and undermines the very nature between American citizens and their local police force.
The USA PATRIOT Act is an Act of Congress that was signed into law by President George W. Bush on October 26, 2001. Its title is a ten-letter backronym (USA PATRIOT) that stands for “Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001″.
drove a stake through the heart of the Bill of Rights, violating at least six of the ten original amendments—the First, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Amendments—and possibly the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Amendments, as well. The Patriot Act also redefined terrorism so broadly that many non-terrorist political activities such as protest marches, demonstrations and civil disobedience were considered potential terrorist acts, thereby rendering anyone desiring to engage in protected First Amendment expressive activities as suspects of the surveillance state.
The law also granted the FBI the right to come to your place of employment, demand your personal records and question your supervisors and fellow employees, all without notifying you; allowed the government access to your medical records, school records and practically every personal record about you; and allowed the government to secretly demand to see records of books or magazines you’ve checked out in any public library and Internet sites you’ve visited (at least 545 libraries received such demands in the first year following passage of the Patriot Act).
rather than expiring quietly, those provisions are once again up for reauthorization on May 28, thanks to the handiwork of Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee, with backing from Reps. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), the chairmen of the Judiciary and Intelligence committees, respectively. Unfortunately, not only are Sensenbrenner and his cohorts pushing to extend the first two controversial provisions (allowing “roving wiretaps” of phones used by terror suspects and allowing federal investigators to compel production of business records) for six more years, they have also proposed making permanent the “lone wolf” provision, allowing the government to monitor individuals who they believe are terrorists even though they might not have ties to a specific group.
The McCarthy era and the wiretapping of Martin Luther King Jr. illustrated, the government’s amassing of power, especially in relation to its ability to spy on Americans, predates the passage of the Patriot Act in 2001.
Yet what the Patriot Act and its subsequent incarnations did was legitimize what had previously been covert and frowned upon as a violation of Americans’ long-cherished privacy rights. Thus, what began with the passage of the USA Patriot Act in the fall of 2001 has snowballed into a massive assault on our constitutional freedoms, our system of government and our fundamental philosophies and way of life.
What To Do At A DUI Roadblock
By William Pangman, a past president and inventor of the Wisconsin Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
What is a driver obliged to do when run up against with a police backup way to go?
The United States Supreme Court got together a response to this appeal in Michigan Department of State Police v. Sitz, 110 S.Ct. 2481 (1990). In Sitz, a get-together of Michigan drivers attempted the authenticity of an interstate limitation check-point used by the Michigan State Police. The essential check-point worked in Michigan was in Saginaw County. The operation proceeded for 60 minutes and fifteen minutes and each vehicle encountering the designated extent was ceased for pretty just about 25 seconds. Precisely when officers recognized that the drivers finished at the check-point may be affected by an intoxicant, those vehicles were asked to draw in over to the side of the street and drivers were asked for to perform field leveling tests.
Out of the 126 drivers which encountered the check-point, just three drivers were asked to compel over. These truths were clearly essential to Supreme Court Chief Justice Rehnquist, who made the appraisal for the lion’s offer. The Court certified that the Michigan check-point, under the feelings and circumstances showed, did not make a mind boggling interruption on specific’s certification under the Fourth Amendment.
Rehnquist joined a three-point changing test to comprehend if constraint check-concentrates with everything considered are sensible under the Fourth Amendment. This test included adjusting the State’s vitality for anticipating incidents made by intoxicated drivers, the sensibility of the parity check- packs in completing the objective, and the level of impedance on a specific’s made right to security brought on by the check-focuses.
The Chief Justice considered that nobody could truly investigate the compass of the put driving issue or the State’s vitality for wrecking it. Additionally, Rehnquist found that a 25 second yield in travel was insignificantly meddling with driver’s rights, particularly considering the way that voyaging drivers could kill the street when they saw the backup way to go, or make U-turns to avoid encountering it. As to the sensibility of the limitation check-point, the court held that the system was extreme, notwithstanding the way that just 1 of the 126 drivers finished was gotten.
In the last examination, it is at present the law that from a shaky Fourth Amendment outlook, nondiscriminatory limitation check-concentrates by and large are not weird. Remember that other Fourth Amendment issues with parity check-focuses may exist when specific drivers encountering the check-point are asked to draw over.
Police don’t have the profit, for the most part, to check driver’s licenses or enlistments when the stop is not started by an infringement. Regardless, where the police have a sensible suspicion of unlawful behavior, despite the path that there is not authentic infringement of the law they may inspect drivers’ licenses or enlistment.
In the Sitz case, officers were not permitted to make a driver commute over and demonstrate his/her permit or check the driver’s enrollment unless the officer saw indications of inebriation. Moreover, a driver never needs to agree to a police solicitation of his or her individual or vehicle, yet, the police may make such an investment even without the driver’s assent when either: 1) they have sensible backing to recognize the vehicle contains stash or the trademark things or instrumentalities of a wrongdoing; 2) when the driver has been set caught; or 3) they may make a visual overview of inside voyager compartment from the officer’s position outside the vehicle, to watch unlawful articles on display.
As to the level of drivers rights; when tenants are run up against with improvised courses, they ought to be wonderful. On the off chance that they don’t cut down their window it makes the feeling that the officer’s suspicion would be raised and, in any occasion, may give the officer grounds to require the driver to pull in over to the side of the street.
After beginning contact with the hindrance, nationals might beneficently abatement to answer any of the officer’s solicitation. The running with is an example of a declaration of rights that can be reiterated and accommodated an officer at a bar:
The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913,claims to be
the world’s leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.
New York, NY, July 22, 2005
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) called legislation approved yesterday in the House to reauthorize sections of the USA PATRIOT Act, “a measured response to the legitimate threat of terrorism” and urged Congress to continue to build additional safeguards and reporting requirements into the legislation as it moves to the Senate. The League discussed the reauthorization of the PATRIOT Act in a meeting last month with Attorney General Alberto Gonzales
DEFINITION of ‘Sunset Provision’
A clause in a statute, regulation or similar piece of legislation that provides for an automatic repeal of the entire or sections of a law once a specific date is reached. Once the sunset provision date is reached, the pieces of legislation mentioned in the clause are rendered void. If the government wishes to extend the length of time for which the law in question will be in effect, it can push back the sunset provision date any time before it is reached.
INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS ‘Sunset Provision’
The purpose of a sunset provision is generally to allow lawmakers to institute a law when change or government action is required reasonably quickly, when the long-term ramifications of the law in question are difficult or impossible to foresee, or when circumstances warrant such a legal structure.
A good example of legislation warranting a sunset provision is the
U.S.A. Patriot Act. Intended to address relatively short-term security concerns following the events of September 11, 2001, the act, when it was initially drafted, included a sunset provision for December 31, 2005.
ADL stressed the importance of the original sunset provisions for certain provisions of the act. Now that the House has removed most of those provisions, ADL will press for continuing, robust Congressional oversight, for accountability and transparency in implementing the powers granted under the Act, for appropriate administrative reporting requirements and for opportunities for meaningful judicial review of these provisions.
Ferguson, MO and the “Israelization” of America’s Police Force Under the Patriot Act. “Israelization” of America’s police force
Ferguson, Mo is not about the militarization’s of America’s police force. It is and should be about the “Israelization” of America’s police force in equipment, training, ideology, perception and doctrine. The days of “to serve and protect” are long gone, given way to the new doctrine imported from Israel where “citizens” are the enemies, especially if they are Blacks, Hispanic, Muslims, Arabs or White Leftist and liberals. We have seen this transformation in the way the local police dealt with the “Occupy Wall Street” and how it dealt with the citizen’s protest in Ferguson, MO.
We should not be surprised with this massive earth-shattering shift in attitude, philosophy and doctrine. Michael Chertoff of Homeland Security, the ADL and Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) made sure that law enforcement agencies in the United States view citizens, all citizens as “potential terrorists” and should be dealt with as “terrorists”.
Americans are no more citizens with constitutional rights of free speech, free assembly, with the rights to petition governments, with rights against illegal search and seizure, Miranda and Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. These rights do not exist and never existed In Israel especially to none “ Jewish” residents or citizens of the State of Israel, let alone the 4 million Palestinians Arabs under Occupation, who have NO rights whatsoever other than being potential and or terrorists.
This is the United States of America, and America is not an “Occupied Territories” with Apartheid Wall, barbed wires, separate roads for Jews and non-Jews, land theft an seizure, home demolition and marauding gangs of Jewish settlers. Unless we thing of Congress and the White House as an “Israeli Occupied Territories”. Here we are citizens, not an the “enemy” resident of “occupied territories.
In 1990, when Dick Cheney was Secretary of Defense, Congress passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which contained Section 1208, authorizing the Secretary of Defense to “transfer to Federal and State agencies personal property of the Department of Defense, including small arms and ammunition, that the Secretary determines is suitable for use by such agencies in counter-drug activities; and excess to the needs of the Department of Defense.” The “1208 Program” thus established, was updated in 1996 and became the “1033 Program” after Section 1033 of that year’s NDAA. 1033 created a Law Enforcement Support Office within the Defense Logistics Agency to manage the dispursal.
Not surprisingly, given Dick Cheney’s close ties to major defense contractors, the program was boon to the arms industry. Police and sheriffs departments around the country received old military hardware, including humvees and other armored vehicles, which required ongoing maintenance contracts, spare parts, etc. The program clearly established a militarization of police and sheriffs forces that has proceeded apace ever since.
TEVA Pharmaceuticals in Kfar Sava, Israel
Today, is the world’s biggest generic-drug maker and a major force in the U.S. market. It fills more prescriptions for Americans than any other company except Pfizer Inc. Teva expects revenue of about $4.5 billion this year, twice the amount of the next-largest generic maker although only a fraction of the more than $52 billion in revenue Pfizer expects this year.
The Department of Health and Human Services plans to study the total cost of Medicare and Medicaid programs due to the price increases, according to a letter from lawmakers pressing the issue.
Potential presidential candidate
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md.,
asked for the investigation earlier this year.
Generic drugs increased in price from 2013 to 2014, according to an analysis of Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services data provided by the two lawmakers.
The highest markup was for a 500 mg capsule of the antibiotic tetracycline, which skyrocketed from a nickel per capsule to $8.53 per capsule, a boost of more than 17,000 percent, according to the analysis.
We’ve got to get to the bottom of these enormous price increases,” Sanders said Tuesday.
In addition to examining prices, the administration will investigate applying a rebate provision in the Social Security Act to generic drugs.
The provision requires brand-name drug makers to issue a rebate to customers if their drug goes past a certain price.
President Obama included in his budget a proposal to allow the government to negotiate with drug companies to get a lower price for Medicare and Medicaid-covered drugs. The practice is used in Europe to drive down prices, but it is for the general public.
Purports: The leaders of the New Black Panther Party (NBPP), the largest organized anti-Semitic and racist Black militant group in America, traveled to Ferguson, Missouri, inflaming the already tense situation following the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by police.
Police say Gray is acting “irate” in the back of the van. The van is stopped and Gray is placed in leg shackles and repositioned in the van. Some residents describe a violent encounter.
The man said that Rice and other officers moved toward him, blocking his view of the van. They didn’t ask him to stop recording, but Rice took out his Taser and threatened to use it if he didn’t leave, the man said.
Gross is then heard telling her neighbor, “Let’s walk away.” After that, both of them left.
Shortly after Gray’s death, police posted fliers around the area asking residents with video of the incident to come forward. A police news release on April 16 stated that when the van departed from Mount and Baker streets, video evidence indicated that Gray was “conscious and speaking.”
It is unclear which video police are referring to; neither the cellphone video taken with Gross’ phone nor the security camera initially released by police reveals Gray speaking or moving.
Gross said police never reached out to her for the cellphone video footage and she has not spoken to them.
Gray’s death still upsets Gross. She has seen police beatings portrayed on television but has never known anyone who died from alleged brutality — certainly not someone she used to call “son.”
She said, “He won’t be calling me Mom anymore.”
