Pardons on Assange - and Snowden - being blocked!

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange prepares to speak from the balcony [Feb.5?] of the Ecuadorian embassy, where he's lived since 2012.

Court won't drop Julian Assange rape investigation

CBS: STOCKHOLM -- A Swedish appeals court on Friday upheld a detention order for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, dismissing the latest attempt by the 45-year-old Australian to make prosecutors drop a rape investigation from 2010.

The decision by the Svea Court of Appeal means that the arrest warrant stands for the 45-year-old computer hacker, who has avoided extradition to Sweden by seeking shelter at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since 2012.

Assange, who denies the rape allegation, has challenged the detention order several times. He says he fears he will be extradited to the United States to face espionage charges if he leaves the embassy.

His Swedish defense lawyer, Per Samuelson, said he would appeal the decision to the Supreme Court.

JUGGERNAUT: The Trans-Pacific PUTSCH that just won't die!

The End of the American Dream and Beyond

From social to economics to politics, to climate and earth changes, the end seems near for centuries of progress...

... and for decades of trickle-down, debt-induced delusion.  As we progressed, we sold out, and off-shore. To the banks and mega-corps. Now we daftly agree to disagree, and disagree, and disagree... Meanwhile, leading economic indicators continue to point to one thing: A growing bifurcation between the now-poor middle class, and the corporate elites, who eat our land, and weather, and taxes, and health, and wealth - and play left against right, and so on. And the mega-media likes it this way: Manufacturing consent, and fear, and false flags, and war. Is this what we bargained for?

So - I put together an awkward little compendium of articles relating to the faltering of our drunken journey to OZ, especially as of late - and to come. Pedantic economics, mainly. Let's start with an article from late 2014, when times were simpler, and most people had never heard of Bernie Sanders...

7 facts that show the American dream is dead - and other ominous articles...Collapse )

Note: I have less or worse to say about the Status-Quo Republicans.

How about that TPP? Just say, "NO!"

The TPP or Trans Pacific Partnership trade agreement would effectively institutionalize the worst working and environmental conditions currently present Third World countries. And if a government passed an OSHA type law to improve working conditions, the government, aka, taxpayers, would have to pay for facility upgrades!!!

The Bernie Manifesto: "Here's what we want."

On the Ballot ! - "End Corporate Rule. Legalize Democracy" - (x-post)

Vote to Overturn Citizens United on April 5 in Wisconsin!

[March 28, 2016] - Besides the one for President and for the Wisconsin Supreme Court, there will be another important vote to cast on April 5 in 11 Wisconsin towns or cities. And that’s to vote to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s horrendous decision in the Citizens United case back in 2010 and to proclaim, once and for all, that corporations aren’t persons and money isn’t speech.

Such a resolution is on the ballot in Belmont, Beloit, Brodhead, Clarno, Darlington, Janesville, Lancaster, Monroe, New London, Platteville, and York.

The Citizens United case said that corporations, unions, and other associations can spend unlimited amounts of money to elect candidates of their choice. And it contained two of the most naïve statements ever written in a Supreme Court decision:

“Independent expenditures, including those made by corporations, do not give rise to corruption or the appearance of corruption,” and, “The appearance of influence or access, furthermore, will not cause the electorate to lose faith in our democracy.”

In the last five years in Wisconsin, resolutions to amend the Constitution to overturn Citizens United have passed by overwhelmingly margins in 61 villages, towns, cities, and a few counties in Wisconsin. That makes Wisconsin one of the leaders in the nationwide movement to get money out of politics.

The mainstream media is ignoring this movement. But it’s growing fast.

For more information, go to wimta.org or email wisconsin@unitedtoamend.org. - (Source again: )

2014 - A Dozen Wisconsin Communities Challenge Corporate Personhood With Vote to Overturn Citizens United
2011 - More Cities and Counties Pass Resolutions in Support of Amending the Constitution

MOVE TO AMEND in your home town! - "We the People, Not We the Corporations"

And thanks to Bernie Sanders for infusing energy into campaigns against corpocrat personhood; money-speak; the $15 minimum wage; for extinguishing the TPP; for taxing the so-called "upper" 1%, and for giving the majority of Americans a fair shake at obtaining a decent and free life in these maddening times. For the great LJ BERNIE site, go here: bernie2016

I would feel remiss without also thanking the phenomenal Donald Trump for, somewhere behind his narcissistic tantrums, cobbling together an alternate rebuke of the Establishment*, which rejects the TPP, and some other dreams shared in common with Bernie, although one could hardly guess it from the media coverage.

LJustice - ?

madman101 (moderator) cannot log into his journal.

his LJ password was lost when his laptop was destroyed.

his associated Yahoo email/ address was earlier deleted by Yahoo, due to inactivity.

therefore, there is no way to log in to LJ at the moment, since the email is needed to confirm.

there was a chance that a new yahoo account could be created under the same, old name. however, that Yahoo email username has already been taken - which is strange.

the worst part of all this is that LJ has not responded to a letter sent by mail, giving all sorts of info, including the credit card number used by the LJ madman101 account!

this credit card number has recently been renewed.

so, I'm sure that LJ will be very happy to continue to charge that card, for an account which it won't allow the user to access!

LJ - if you are reading this: You know who you are!

OCCUPY LJ !!!!!!
