Cop Asks Stranger for ID, Stranger Asks Cop Why, Cop Responds By Locking Stranger in Car and Turning Heat On posted 11/30/2010, 8:58 PM (InformationLiberation)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Here's one more reason to "respect the badge."

WSBTV reports:
Webb said he was minding his own business in front of a Riverdale apartment complex when then-city police officer Daniel Vanhee approached him and asked for identification.

“I said: ‘What do you need my ID for,’ and he couldn’t tell me,” Webb said.

Records show Vanhee arrested Webb for disorderly conduct and obstruction of an officer, but that prosecutors later dropped the charges because Vanhee had left the department and wouldn’t be available for a court hearing.

Webb told Petchenik that, instead of taking him directly to jail, Vanhee drove him to a restaurant parking lot and turned up the heat in the cruiser to “teach him a lesson.”

“It started getting real, real hot and stuff and I had the handcuffs on real tight,” he said. “He kept me for a couple hours in the back of the car with the heater on.”
Children and animals have died from being left in hot cars. Should this cop be charged with assault? This was clearly an act of torture.

Imagine if this situation was reversed, a random stranger approaches a state goon and asks to see his ID, the cop asks him why, then the stranger kidnaps the cop, cuffs him, locks him in a car and turns the heat up and makes him suffer for hours.

Would that not be assault?

Would that not be a major story and create unbelievable outrage?

What's the difference?

Only their costumes and their relationship with the state.

If This Be Treason... posted 11/30/2010, 8:58 PM (Thomas L. Knapp)

... but, of course, it isn’t.

Julian Assange isn’t an American citizen. Wikileaks isn’t an American organization. Even if we accept the logic of state, neither Assange nor Wikileaks owe any duty of loyalty to the US government. Where no loyalty is due, no betrayal is possible. Whatever else they might be, the Wikileaks “dumps” of information deemed “classified” by the US government aren’t “treason” (as the usual suspects keep calling them) by any reasonable definition of that word

BitTorrent Based DNS To Counter US Domain Seizures posted 11/30/2010, 8:58 PM (TorrentFreak )
[Category: Science/Technology]

The domain seizures by the United States authorities in recent days and upcoming legislation that could make similar takeovers even easier in the future, have inspired a group of enthusiasts to come up with a new, decentralized and BitTorrent-powered DNS system. This system will exchange DNS information through peer-to-peer transfers and will work with a new .p2p domain extension.

Justice Department Trying To Figure Out How To Twist US Laws To Charge Julian Assange posted 11/30/2010, 8:48 PM (Techdirt)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
Yesterday, we noted that the Obama administration was considering legal action against Julian Assange of Wikileaks for the release of various government documents. The latest on that front is that the Justice Department is wasting valuable resources scouring the legal books to see if it can come up with some sort of ridiculous justification for eurozone, most notably those of Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, and Spain (PIIGS), had been able to finance their deficits at artificially low interest rates.

What does modern North Korea, 1600 ~ 1853 Imperial Japan and the USA have in common? Those government's try to support failing systems by cutting their people off from the foreign influence. It's called, in Japanese, Sakoku. Sakoku means something like isolation from the outside.

In North Korea, if they catch you trying to escape, they execute you. Imperial Japan did the same thing. How much longer until the USA tries this? Laugh now but the situation there is getting more

Don't Raise the Debt Ceiling! posted 11/30/2010, 8:46 PM (Ron Paul)
[Category: Commentary]
As of November 7th, the total U.S. public debt outstanding reached an astonishing $13.7 trillion. This means that although Congress just raised the debt ceiling to $14.3 trillion back in February, the new Congress will face another debt ceiling vote almost immediately next year. Otherwise, the Treasury will not be able to continue issuing debt to fund government operations.

The upcoming vote will provide an interesting litmus test for the new Republican congressio

"Nothing could be more insidious," wrote economist Thomas J. DiLorenzo in 1999, "than an international welfare state enforced and implemented by the NATO military machine." Those words, offered against the backdrop of U.S.-led imperial intervention in the Balkans, proved both diagnostic and prophetic; they at once recognized the lunacy driving the war effort in an ethnically diverse region, and the momentum behind a lumbering bureaucracy formed of states with no interest but to rigidify their po...

The WikiLeaks disclosure has revealed not only numerous government secrets, but also the driving mentality of major factions in our political and media class.  Simply put, there are few countries in the world with citizenries and especially media outlets more devoted to serving, protecting and venerating government authorities than the U.S.  Indeed, I don't quite recall any entity producing as much bipartisan contempt across the American political spectrum as WikiLeaks has:  as usual, for autho...

In the last two years, the city has paid out almost $600,000 from lawsuits against the police department. One lawsuit involves an elderly man who says he was beaten by an undercover police officer. The city agreed to pay him $15,000.

The man who says he was beat up is now almost 81 years old. He says the officer, who's six feet, three inches tall, and weighs in at 270 pounds, beat him until he was unconscious. When the man woke up he was in handcuffs.
