S. 1867 -- National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2012
(Sen. Levin, D-MI)
S 3081, Indefinite detention, habeas corpus, posse comitatus, Enemy Belligerent Interrogation Detention Prosecution Act, judge napolitano, freedom watch, john mccain, carl levin, lindsey graham, rand paul, military, arbitrary arrest, us citizen, battlefield, prepper, food storage, weatherproof ammo, suspected terrorist,
Thank you for contacting me regarding the new provisions for detainees proposed in Sections 1031 and 1032 of S. 1253, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012. I welcome your thoughts and comments.
Section 1031 of the NDAA establishes guidelines to allow U.S. Armed Forces to detain "covered persons" captured during hostilities as unprivileged enemy combatants, pending disposition under the laws of war. The provision defines a "covered person" as a person who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. This provision also applies to individuals who support al Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners.
Section 1032 requires U.S. Armed Forces to hold in custody as an unprivileged enemy combatant any person who is a member or part of al Qaeda or an affiliated entity, and who participated in planning or carrying out an attack or attempted attack against the United States or its coalition partners. The requirement does not extend to citizens of the United States. Also, the Secretary of Defense is authorized to waive required detention.
S. 1253 has passed the Senate Armed Services Committee, and is currently awaiting consideration by the full Senate. Should this legislation be brought to the Senate floor, you may be certain that I will keep your views in mind.
I appreciate hearing from you, and I hope that you will not hesitate to contact me on any issue that is important to you.

Welcome to the new world order,
one big worldwide prison,
we are kept in perpetual debt slavery,
with an authoritarian police state,
who now have all the military and spying tools to enforce a complete take over,
a new world order,
the first world wide coup d'etat.
The corrupt militarized police have been briefed to expect resistance,
and so with training and weapons they have geared up to oppress you.
As H.G. Well foresaw in 1938 'Countless people will hate the new world order and die protesting it'
This time is now upon us.
This new world order, a one world concentration camp, has it's prison guards recruited from among us, the ones least likely to show compassion, the ones most likely to oppress and enjoy abusing and debasing people.
This evil is creeping up amongst us by stealth, only noticeable to those who have eyes to see it.
~ " FITTED UP
From 16th February it will be punishable by up to ten years in the nick to elicit or attempt to elicit information about members of the armed forces, intelligence services or policemen, where this information could be of use to a terrorist. This rather vaguely worded term (in the Counter Terrorism Act) is another of the governments and polices rather sweeping authoritarian laws that is just one more attack on traditional civil liberties. "Information that could be of use to a terrorist" is a rather vague and catch-all term.
On being caught with any information involving police you need to show a reasonable excuse for holding the information, whatever reasonable is deemed to mean. For people who have been involved in social struggles and come up against the state it is perfectly reasonable to make notes of police misbehaviour and taking their photos and collar numbers - despite being a perfectly legal (and sensible) thing to do - could warrant arrest.
The Government and police make no apologies for hassling photo journalists. In a letter to the National Union of Journalists, the Minister for security and counter-terrorism Vernon Coaker, justified police harassment of anyone using a camera in public, saying that, This may be on the grounds of national security or there may be situations in which the taking of photographs may cause or lead to public order situations or inflame an already tense situation or raise security considerations. Yeah right public order situation police stopping and searching someone on a demo, you get your camera and observe the situation, police tell you to move you on, you say no, they get heavy handed and push you around... Hey Presto! Public Order Situation!A graphic example of the way police hassle photographers was seen at the anti-BBC Gaza demo on 24th January when a member of the police Forward Intelligence Team (U3037) grabbed journalist Justin Tallis who had taken a photo of him, tried to get the camera off him and said Youre not allowed to take photos of police officers. The only way to oppose this legislation is to resist any police repression of the right to publish information about police misbehaviour and the activities of the political police units: the National Extremism Tactical Coordination Unit and the Forward Intelligence Teams.

Daily News @ http://RevolutionNews.US ~ Researchers at Harvard tested the chemical THC in both lab and mouse studies. They say this is the first set of experiments to show that the compound, THC actually activates naturally produced receptors to fight off lung cancer. The researchers suggest that THC or other designer agents that activate these receptors might be used in a targeted fashion to treat lung cancer.
Although a medical substitute of THC, known as Marinol, has been used as an appetite stimulant for cancer patients and other similar treatments, few studies have shown that THC might have anti-tumor activity.
*HERE IS THE INTERESTING PART* The only clinical trial testing THC as a treatment against cancer growth was a recently completed British pilot study. For three weeks, researchers injected standard doses of THC into mice that had been implanted with human lung cancer cells, and found that tumors were reduced in size and weight by about 50 percent in treated animals compared to a control group. There was also about a 60 percent reduction in cancer lesions on the lungs in these mice as well as a significant reduction in protein markers associated with cancer progression.

Time For A New American Revolution?
On 4 April 2004 Michael Schumacher's Ferrari received the chequered flag to win the Bahrain Grand Prix, the first FIA Formula One World Championship event held in the Middle East.
This symbolic act marked the end of an amazing 16 months — and the beginning of a brilliant future — for Bahrain International Circuit (BIC).
The track was conceived as an integral part of His Highness the Crown Prince Shaikh Salman bin Hamad's objective of increasing the awareness and profile of the Kingdom.
Designed by Hermann Tilke, the German architect responsible for new GP venues in Malaysia, China, Turkey and Valencia, BIC was scheduled for a two-year build.
But then Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone asked if that schedule could be brought forward — by six months. Without a moments hesitation we agreed.
"There was a flood of press speculation that the track would not be ready for its inaugural Grand Prix," says Martin Whitaker, BIC's CEO since August 2004. "But under the guidance of Shaikhs Mohammed bin Isa and Fawaz bin Mohammed Al Khalifa it was more than ready.
"It was a period of intense excitement and hard work. The drive to have the circuit finished on time coursed through the veins of everyone connected with it: pride, passion and, ultimately, huge satisfaction in a job well done."
The first piece of ground was broken in December 2002. The 'keys' to the circuit were handed over to His Majesty King Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa on 17 March 2004.
In just 16 months, and at a cost of US$150 million, a world-class motorsport facility had risen out of the desert 30km south of Bahrain's capital city, Manama. And BIC's reputation has grown ever since. Its annual Grand Prix is renowned as one of the most friendly, atmospheric and exciting of the season.
And its success — based on the sound foundation of BIC's friendly and professional staff — has brought other international race series flooding in: international Formula 3, GP2, GP2 Asia, the FIA GT Championship and the BMW World Final have all raced at BIC — and its annual Desert 400 is the only round of the V8 Supercar series held outside Australasia.
BIC has also encouraged local motorsport: its drag strip has given new focus to what has long been a popular sport in the Middle East; its Kart Zone will help unearth young local talent; and its on-site technicians provide vital racing expertise.
Off track, its 4x4 desert obstacle course is home to only the world's second Hummer Academy and BIC stages events — competitive and corporate — almost every day of the year.
It's as busy now as it was when it was being built.
(Warning: RT's exclusive video contains graphic scenes of violence)
Last Friday, at least 50 people have been injured as security forces in Bahrain opened fire on protesters for a second straight day. Protesters who tried to march to the square on Friday described a chaotic scene of tear gas clouds, bullets coming from many directions and people slipping in pools of blood as they sought cover. Some claimed the gunfire came from either helicopters or sniper nests. The video shot by RT crew shows chanting protesters marching towards military vehicles before sustained gunfire erupts. Throngs of anti-government protesters took over the square earlier in the week, setting up a camp with tents and placards, but they were driven out by riot police in a deadly assault on Thursday that killed five people and injured more than 200.
"A mass photo event" outside New Scotland Yard in response to a part of the 'Counter-Terrorism Act'.
From 16th February 2009, anyone taking a photograph of a police officer could be deemed to have committed a criminal offence.
That is because of a new law - Section 76 of the Counter Terrorism Act - which has come into force. It permits the arrest of anyone found "eliciting, publishing or communicating information" relating to members of the armed forces, intelligence services and police officers, which is "likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism".
That means anyone taking a picture of one of those people could face a fine or a prison sentence of up to 10 years, if a link to terrorism is proved. The law has angered photographers, both professional and amateur, who fear it could exacerbate the harassment they already sometimes face.
