Forum Post: Right-Wing Media's Own Legal Experts Undermine Campaign To Shred Due Process

Posted 11 months ago on April 28, 2013, 12:36 a.m. EST by GirlFriday (21785)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

Over the objections of their own legal experts, right-wing media continue to argue the alleged Boston bomber should be denied constitutional rights unlike the hundreds of terrorists before him who have been successfully tried and convicted.

Prominent right-wing media figures have advocated a wide range of unconstitutional treatment for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 19-year-old U.S. citizen accused of complicity in the Boston marathon bombing and subsequent murder of a police officer. Echoing GOP politicians from Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) to Rep. Michelle Bachman (R-MN), right-wing media have called for Tsarnaev to be denied the constitutional protections regularly given to domestic or foreign terrorists in this country, both before and after the September 11, 2001, attacks.

Fox News hosts have suggested using torture on Tsarnaev because not all American citizens are "worthy of the constitutional rights that we have." The Wall Street Journal joined the dangerous clamor (fueled by Graham and Bachman) to indefinitely detain Tsarnaev in military custody as an "enemy combatant." Conservative pundit Ann Coulter told Fox's Sean Hannity she wanted authorities to "shoot up the boat" when they found Tsarnaev unarmed and "get him an automatic death penalty there."

In BradB's piece on insecticides, bees, and European policy the article indicates that the chemical makers have quietly threatened to sue politicians over a study that harms their case.

Now why can't we do that - just sue all of these talking heads who wish to expand indefinite detention and bring back waterboarding . . .

And lets not forget the legislators who refuse to fund the closure of gitmo.

And anyone in Congress who refuses even to hear the argument to impeach.

Bury them in a flurry of paper . . .

We could even give it a code name - Death by a thousand cuts or something . . .

Death by a thousand cuts

Paper cuts? Would be fitting.

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20566) from South Burlington, VT 11 months ago

exactly

Another potential benefit of quietly circulating such a code name, is that it presents the real possibility of hijacking the next instance of mass murder - which we know is just waiting in the wings among the various nuts - and insinuating that it is all a part of our plan . . . .

  • shhhh and get the fuk in line

Sounds really sik, I'm sure - but it is possible that with careful planning and the realistic possibility of hijacking the . . . iconography . . . we might in some way curb or reduce the likelihood of such . . . madness . . .

[-] -3 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 11 months ago

Well such things ( tragedies horrors insanity ) will occur. Better to use em to do some good, rather then let the insanity be used for further insanity. If we could get real aid out into the world - aid to build clean power infrastructure to support water purification and distribution and to build up clean transportation in support of farming and do other such things to improve the quality of life. PEOPLE MIGHT STOP ACTING MURDEROUS TO EACH-OTHER.

Hahaha. Paper terrorism. Ya, that's a Sovereign Citizen gig and I don't want anything to do with that.

But, I think that in many of our instances we should start looking at Crimes Against Humanity

Ya, ya, ya. I know. I know. I know.

BUT, I think we could make a case in several arenas. Not that anyone would hear the case. But, I think we could make it.

[-] 4 points by ZenDog (20566) from South Burlington, VT 11 months ago

Crimes against Humanity - just bringing such a charge would generate media interest.

[-] 4 points by ZenDog (20566) from South Burlington, VT 11 months ago

Why? If it can prove to be an effective method of curbing corporate excess, why dismiss it out of hand?

I am not familiar with the details of such a campaign, but if it were implemented by thousands of people at the same time, it might actually work.

[-] -3 points by GirlFriday (21785) 11 months ago

Why?

Primarily because before it gets to a corporation there is a process. These people drum up some convoluted crap and then kick it in. They have been known to put liens on property or vehicles and they firmly believe that government is illegitimate.

I believe that paper terrorism targets the wrong people and, without intending to, legitimizes these freaks efforts. These people are off the beam and I refuse to do anything that might encourage them to continue. Frankly, they just suck.

[-] 3 points by ZenDog (20566) from South Burlington, VT 11 months ago

I agree. The people who currently use such tactics do suck.

But I'm not talking about average civil servants here. I'm talking about individuals who serve in the biggest gorillas the world has ever seen, individuals whose individual behavior is rarely if ever addressed - even as they make decisions and place in motion agendas that cause harm worldwide.

Thus far there has been little means of holding corporations accountable for their actions. This could be one method of changing that.

[+] -7 points by GirlFriday (21785) 11 months ago

Perhaps I need to mull it over some more.

[-] 4 points by ZenDog (20566) from South Burlington, VT 11 months ago

It is a potential force multiplier

but I can easily understand the resistance to the whole idea. If it went mainstream it would introduce utter chaos - until legislators produced a fix in the legal mechanisms deterring various forms of paper terror.

In some ways I don't have much of a rep to protect, and any stick will do . . .

  • hmmm..... I like the concept.... let's think of the possible repercussions ... individuals being counter-sued by big money....
  • so... how bout ... class action suits .... ie ... "Counter Action"
  • as a group ... filling counter suits .... against anyone who threatens our politicians
[+] -5 points by GirlFriday (21785) 11 months ago

Do you remember a couple of years ago, you were on the forum at the time, the guy that had filed a lawsuit (I think) with Google? He had a tried to acquire the best lawyer available and believed that most money spent=best attorney. He ran out of money. His case was/is online and you could see where he tried to navigate the system by himself and got shut down repeatedly. On top of this, they had this entire team of lawyers and they could drag this out for as long as they wanted to. I felt so bad for him.

So, as individuals trying to come up with the money to obtain an attorney is going to be impossible. So, asking people to figure out how to navigate the system when even simple procedures are misunderstood is almost self defeating and, ya, they have a never ending supply of attorneys.

I think that there has been/maybe now limitations on class action suits. These changes would be recent. Do you happen to know what they are?

Could you expand on this: against anyone who threatens our politicians

I have a couple of ideas that I am working in my head but I'm not sure how far it would go.

[-] -3 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 11 months ago

Yes - I also like ZD's petition. Unfortunate though I think necessary - an appeal to emotion is necessary to get most peoples attention - to get people to even take a 1st look. But emotional appeal can not be the only content - there must be real information - let facts be the major bulk in any communication and in so doing promote more fact finding. Emotion alone is no good - emotion does not present reason for consistent support - facts do. But ya gotta get people to look at the facts.

[+] -5 points by GirlFriday (21785) 11 months ago

Well, much of the subject matter is emotional enough as it is. The problem with the ongoing emotional appeal is emotional exhaustion. There are a great quantity of people who are done with the spin. I have found organizations that send out these petitions that I do support but I refuse to sign a damn thing because of the emotional appeal.

So, here are the ICC's list of Crimes Against Humanity What are crimes against humanity?

“Crimes against humanity” include any of the following acts committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:

murder;

extermination;

enslavement;

deportation or forcible transfer of population;

imprisonment;

torture;

rape, sexual slavery, enforced prostitution, forced pregnancy, enforced sterilization, or any other form of sexual violence of comparable gravity;

persecution against an identifiable group on political, racial, national, ethnic, cultural, religious or gender grounds;

enforced disappearance of persons;

the crime of apartheid;

other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering or serious bodily or mental injury.

Michigan could fit into a few of those.

In fact, there are many issues that might fit into those.

But, do we have any laws in the US that offer a remedy? Can we prove it? Civil court or criminal court? Of course, no class action suits in criminal court and preponderance of the evidence v beyond a shadow of a doubt. Will a settlement solve the problem or merely allow it to continue like SEC settlements? So what impact will it have in the future? What are we asking for specifically?

I am just thinking out loud.

Fracking = poisoning of ground water = Disease and Death visited on the general public - most especially the poor due in part to lack of affective recourse. Also could be considered an attack on indigenous populations such as American Indians etc.

I mean old age and the body shutting down "due to age" was ( is ? ) considered a natural cause.

But it seems that instead of that happening ( organ failure due to age) - that if you live long enough now -that you will die from your body succumbing to one form or another of cancer. Incidence of cancer is rising astronomically in all age groups. Due to all of the pollution/poisons in our environment. Pollution/Poison injected into the environment by industry. As well as added to the food supply by the same sources - some of which is done purposely in the form of additives - additives to livestock as well as to processed foods.

Is there not a political war being waged on these people? Are the moves that are made designed to kill a population without directly killing them? Further, are there not attempts to increase that population? That's why I mention Michigan. Since they have people that are closely watching every move.

I asked this last year or more, when do we begin to call these actions some type of genocide?

[-] 3 points by Renneye (3160) 11 months ago

Democide.

A term, I believe that is currently in flux, 'expanding' due to the ever increasing means by which to kill off certain groups of populations.

"Democide can also include deaths arising from "intentionally or knowingly reckless and depraved disregard for life"; this brings into account many deaths arising through various neglects and abuses, such as forced mass starvation."

RE-EDITED:

I will have to digest this for awhile to address it fully and properly. As YES there is a very real and palpable evil in such things - and the poor and the elderly are victims throughout time. Is it calculated evil??? Quite Often YES !!! Look at the austerity measures that are being taken - they ( measures taken ) are throwing people out into the street and are removing any kind of aid - food clothing medical shelter. What else can it be called - Other Than Murder???

FURTHER:

For aid to be publicly withdrawn puts out a message. An unspoken - but - clearly implied message.

The poor and the elderly are fair game for attack. So you of violent nature you just go ahead and have at em - and you of non-violent nature look the other way.

ANOTHER MESSAGE IMPLIED: Those of you that We ( society ) have abandoned. Do what you need to do to survive - crime of one sort or another - as living off the land is basically prohibited. (so feeding violence on the streets )

So - Consider:

Those in office who are attacking the social safety net of established protection programs for the elderly and the disabled and the poor. ARE ACTIVELY EVIL - MURDERERS. This for government direct actions in a campaign ( undeclared ) of genocide (?) - mass murder.

Then there is the attack on society feeding the evil that is employed by business - off shoring jobs ( removing domestic employment opportunities ) to sweat/slave shops. Also taking revenue out of the domestic economy further stressing the public's ( st )ability to maintain services and infrastructure. Not paying a living wage to all employees/workers ( again government is complicit here as well for allowing and even incentivising ). This does not get into the poisoning of the population or planet - causing disease and death by unclean practices/processes. Then there is the rampant crime of wallstreet and the financial sector - also killing victims. Yes this is all calculated all deliberate.

Well - Thank You Very Much. But I have a hard time trying to walk on water ( it has to be frozen-hard-frozen and be sufficiently thick ). {:-])

Yes, DKA. I've been trying to resist 'sugar', but alas, it is rather...addicting. ~.^

LOL - heavy amounts of sugar will do that.

Tough position to be in - especially when you start out naturally sweet to begin with. {:-]) I myself am in no danger of dissolving in the rain. So remember to be careful to avoid the synthetic stuff as well - just as harmful in someways and can be worse in other ways.

OH

And carry an umbrella!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democide Democide is a term revived and redefined by the political scientist R. J. Rummel as "the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide and mass murder."

Very Good. Now we need to continue to educate the rest of the public.

I think I'll resurrect an old thread of mine...

If you force them to live on the streets then you increase the odds of them dying in the streets. You can't tell me that didn't just send them out to be slaughtered one way or the other.

Then you don't need to worry about any health problems because their dead. You don't have to worry about social security because they die before they can acquire it and if they can then they can't afford a place to live and still live in the streets.

It all goes back to being dead.

Lots o' lawsuits in Crestwood and a few criminal charges. http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2013/04/29/crestwood-water-official-guilty-of-lying-to-investigators/

Sure the people weren't given a death sentence?

Yes - but - I am sure many of those Greedy Calculating Killers have orgasms thinking about their plans.

[-] -1 points by GirlFriday (21785) 11 months ago

I'm sure. The problem is that this is a reoccurring pattern. I think people who utilize the statistics and information from places like Heritage Foundation need to be shown for what they are: murderers.

[-] -1 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 11 months ago

The blinders must come off.

Got to admit the Greedy Murdering Assholes seem to be doing their level best to OUT themselves.

One example:

Food dye's for instance - can be carcinogenic - but allowed in approved quantities. ( studies have been done and the FDA questioned about why they are not banned ) Also thought linked to autism and adhd.

Another:

Steroids - known to cause cancer as well as other health problems. ALSO allowed to be added to our live stock to help em grow and get fat fast = ends up continuing the process in those who eat it. ( studies have been done and the FDA questioned about why they are not banned )

Another:

Anti-biotic - used in growing food as well as in raising livestock = proliferation of anti-biotic resistant bacteria/diseases. ( studies have been done and the FDA questioned about why they are not banned )

Another:

Artificial sweeteners as well as corn fructose = health problems and death. ( studies have been done and the FDA questioned about why they are not banned ) obesity and diabetes as well as cancers and other problems.


BTW - some of the testing has been done by the FDA itself as well as other independent labs.

This is an interesting article - it indicates that within the right wing there is division, and we might be able to capitalize on that.

That's why I included the links I did in the petition, one right, one left - it is a bi-partisan issue. If we could actually remove the wingnut leadership from Congress, they might fall into disarray . . . or not.

Hard to say.

Oh yeah - I've shortened the url to the petition:

also: http://signon.org/sign/the-case-to-impeach-senators

I haven't found a google search that works for it though - even with the specific title. It does bring up pages where the Case is presented or the link to the petition
