This open letter is directed to all of the Liberal/Progressive Blogs and other sites that are attempting to educate the American people with the truth rather than rhetoric and Propaganda. Specifically, this is in regard:
According to the ACLU: “The worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial provision is in S.1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which will be on the Senate floor on Monday (11-28). The bill was drafted in secret by Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) and passed in a closed-door committee meeting, without even a single hearing.”
I am not attempting to editorialize in this brief Open Letter to the Blogging Community, however, I am asking all of you to remember HR-1955 and S-1959, the “Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007, otherwise known as the “Thought Crime Prevention Bill.” The Bill passed the House and it was fast-tracked for approval and there was a majority in the Senate that would have signed-off on the most egregious legislation that this nation has seen in over 50 years. There was a Press Blackout on the Bill, so the public was unaware that Congress was attempting to pull a fast-one on the public in secret; the Blogging community started a campaign that forced Congress to allow the Bill to die in Committee. For the first time since the 1960′s, the people and Blogging Sites stood together in solidarity and “we the people” killed the Bill through a massive campaign of emailing and calling every Senator in Congress, multiple times, and emailing them constantly and expressing our outrage against the proposed Legislation.
We effectively crashed the Senate and White House email servers and clogged all of the switchboards throughout Congress and the White House, and we did it for days. Granted, there were members of Congress that expressed their outrage, but it fell on deaf ears and we won. We can do the same with this Bill that Congress is again attempting to pass under the radar.
I am requesting that every Liberal/Progressive site write Op-Ed’s and Editorials in addition to the excellent work you have already accomplished and tell your readership how to stand in solidarity and work to kill the Bill before we are forced to live in a Soviet style of governance. We have to act fast and the Blogging Community, whom have been working to educate the masses are again left with the burden of energizing the pubic and starting a campaign that will again bring communications in Washington, D.C. to a standstill.
When Congress attempted to pass S-1959, all of the Op-Ed’s and Editorials of the various sites listed the phone numbers for the White House, The First Lady, The Justice Department, and the entire Congress – or in the alternative, linked to sites that contained that information. My Article on this issue will be published as soon as this piece is finished (And I finish writing it…) and it will contain said phone numbers and instructions so everyone can get the email addresses of the entirety of Congress, including their local offices, and of course the White House and Justice Department.
Make no mistake; this is a war against the American people perpetrated by both aisles of Congress. It appears that the Elites and Corporations are extremely worried about the Occupy Wall Street Protests and in their paranoia – expect that these protests will grow, become violent, and threaten their ability to rape and pillage the American people, even though all of the protests have been largely peaceful with violence and brutality being perpetrated by the Police – not the people.
Washington cannot function if their lines of communication are swamped beyond their ability to handle the hundreds of thousands of emails and phone calls, and working together, we can replicate what we did to kill the “Thought Crime Prevention Bill.” We don’t have much time and I am respectfully requesting that we all stand together in solidarity and kill this egregious Bill using methods that have proved to be successful in the past.
Furthermore, I am appealing to the International Community to do the same and email Washington and make phone calls from all over the world. After the United States implements this Bill, other nations will follow suit and fascism and authoritarian rule will begin to sweep throughout the global community. Egyptian Military Justifies Murder of Protesters by Pointing to American Cops, so please be acutely aware that what happens here in the United States is extremely likely to spring-up in your nation too… The international banking community is also fearful that global OWS Protests will pressure their respective governments to demand accountability throughout the financial community and foster round after round of laws and legislation that will hold these thieving Bankers accountable – and they will avoid risking the fall from their Ivory Towers with every resource they have even if it brings tyranny and Martial Law to enforce their stranglehold on politicians and World Leaders. If we lose the battle here in the United States, I believe that every industrialized nation throughout the world will fall like a line of Dominoes, one after the other until freedom and other forms of democracy and parliamentary rule are crushed and made into fascist regimes to further the ongoing Class-War and their domination of Global Politics.
I am asking all of you to please consider this proposal and act accordingly.We have the ability to reach hundreds of thousands of people, if not a million or two – and that’s enough to turn Washington upside-down and send a message that we will not allow our Constitution and Bill of Rights to be circumvented by a Congress that works behind our backs to bring tyranny to the United States, which in itself appears to amount to sedition and treason.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
