Occupy Highway kicks off in New York

From Press TV 

Members of the Occupy Wall Street movement leave Zuccotti Park and begin a highway hike to Washington, D.C. on November 9, 2011 in New York City.Anti-corporatism protesters in the US have kicked off a two-week protest march, dubbed Occupy the Highway, by beginning a walk from New York to Washington D.C.

More than two dozen protesters, part of the nationwide Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement, departed from New York’s Zuccotti Park on Wednesday.

The protesters are planning to walk 20 miles a day, and will stop at other demonstrations at 11 cities before reaching the White House in Washington D.C. on November 23, the OWS website reported.

“We will be walking from 9 a.m. to 5 a.m. (banks working hours) and will hold …..discussions at 7 p.m. in each town where we camp,” the website said.

The protesters’ arrival at their final destination in Washington coincides with the Congressional deficit reduction committee meeting.

The 12-member committee is to discuss whether to end or extend tax cuts for the rich.

“The reason for going down to DC specifically is to make sure the billionaires get taxed,” said Mae Fraser, one of the protesters.

The movement, which has now spread to several countries across the world, began on September 17, when a small group of people occupied the Zuccotti Park in New York’s Lower Manhattan.

Using Fake Intelligence to Justify War on Iran

Global Research Articles by Michel Chossudovsky 

Washington is in the process of concocting a new string of lies pertaining to Iran’s nuclear program with a view to justifying the implementation of punitive bombings.

Threats directed against Iran have been ongoing for the last eight years. Fake intelligence has been used to justify these threats.

There are indications, however, that this time the Western military alliance is not “crying wolf”.

In the wake of the war on Libya, the implementation of an air campaign against Iran is currently on the drawingboard of the Pentagon.

The operation, were it to be carried out, would involve the active participation of  Britain and Israel.

The criminal process of fabricating lies to justify a military agenda must be understood.

Without the lie, the US-NATO Israel military alliance has no leg to stand on. Iran does not constitute a threat to Global Security or to the security of Israel.

The antiwar movement must forcefully address the role of these lies and fabrications.

Without the Lie, the military agenda has no legitimacy in the eyes of public opinion.

The following text on the role of fake intelligence was written in November 2010. For the complete text click below:

 

The Mysterious “Laptop Documents”. Using Fake Intelligence to Justify a Pre-emptive Nuclear War on Iran

– by Michel Chossudovsky – 2010-11-24

Using Fake Intelligence to Wage War on Iran

by Michel Chossudovsky

 

 In November 2005, the New York Times published a report by William J. Broad and David E. Sanger entitled “Relying on Computer, U.S. Seeks to Prove Iran’s Nuclear Aims”. Washington’s allegations, reported in the NYT  hinged upon documents “obtained from a stolen Iranian computer by an unknown source and given to US intelligence in 2004”. (See Gareth Porter, Exclusive Report: Evidence of Iran Nuclear Weapons Program May Be Fraudulent, Global Research, November 18, 2010, emphasis added). 

These documents included “a series of drawings of a missile re-entry vehicle” which allegedly could accommodate an Iranian produced nuclear weapon.

“In mid-July, senior American intelligence officials called the leaders of the international atomic inspection agency to the top of a skyscraper overlooking the Danube in Vienna and unveiled the contents of what they said was a stolen Iranian laptop computer.The Americans flashed on a screen and spread over a conference table selections from more than a thousand pages of Iranian computer simulations and accounts of experiments, saying they showed a long effort to design a nuclear warhead, according to a half-dozen European and American participants in the meeting.The documents, the Americans acknowledged from the start, do not prove that Iran has an atomic bomb. They presented them as the strongest evidence yet that, despite Iran’s insistence that its nuclear program is peaceful, the country is trying to develop a compact warhead to fit atop its Shahab missile, which can reach Israel and other countries in the Middle East.”(William J. Broad and David E. Sanger Relying on Computer, U.S. Seeks to Prove Iran’s Nuclear Aims – New York Times, November 13, 2005)

These “secret documents” were subsequently submitted by the US State Department to the International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA, with a view to demonstrating that Iran was developing a nuclear weapons program.

While their authenticity has been questioned on several occasions,  a recent article by investigative reporter Gareth Porter confirms unequivocally that the mysterious laptop documents are fake. The drawings contained in the documents do not pertain to the Shahab missile but to an obsolete North Korean missile system which was decommissioned by Iran in the mid-1990s.

How stupid! The drawings presented by US State Department officials pertained to the “Wrong Missile Warhead”:

In July 2005, … Robert Joseph, US undersecretary of state for arms control and international security, made a formal presentation on the purported Iranian nuclear weapons program documents to the agency’s leading officials in Vienna. Joseph flashed excerpts from the documents on the screen, giving special attention to the series of technical drawings or “schematics” showing 18 different ways of fitting an unidentified payload into the re-entry vehicle or “warhead” of Iran’s medium-range ballistic missile, the Shahab-3.When IAEA analysts were allowed to study the documents, however, they discovered that those schematics were based on a re-entry vehicle that the analysts knew had already been abandoned by the Iranian military in favor of a new, improved design. The warhead shown in the schematics had the familiar “dunce cap” shape of the original North Korean No Dong missile, which Iran had acquired in the mid-1990s. … The laptop documents had depicted the wrong re-entry vehicle being redesigned. … (Gareth Porter, op cit )

Who was behind the production of fake intelligence? Gareth Porter’s suggests that Israel’s Mossad has been a source of  fake intelligence regarding Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons program:

The origin of the laptop documents may never be proven conclusively, but the accumulated evidence points to Israel as the source. As early as 1995, the head of the Israel Defense Forces’ military intelligence research and assessment division, Yaakov Amidror, tried unsuccessfully to persuade his American counterparts that Iran was planning to “go nuclear.” By 2003-2004, Mossad’s reporting on the Iranian nuclear program was viewed by high-ranking CIA officials as an effort to pressure the Bush administration into considering military action against Iran’s nuclear sites, according to Israeli sources cited by a pro-Israeli news service.” (Ibid)

Lies and Fabrications to Justify a Military Agenda

The laptop documents were essential to sustaining America’s position in the UN Security Council.

We are dealing with a clear case of fake intelligence comparable to that presented by Colin Powell in February 2003 on Iraq’s alleged weapons of mass destruction. The fake intelligence presented to the UN Security Council was used as a justification for the March 2003 invasion of Iraq.

“The evidence, or lack thereof, speaks for itself. In the months leading up to the war in Iraq, the Bush administration produced hundreds of pages of intelligence for members of Congress and for the United Nations that showed how Iraq’s President Saddam Hussein possessed tons of chemical and biological weapons and was actively pursuing a nuclear weapons program.The intelligence information, gathered by the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency, a Department of Defense agency that gathers foreign military intelligence for the Pentagon, was used by the Bush administration to convince the public that Iraq posed a threat to the world.” (See Jason Leopold, Powell Denies Intelligence Failure In Buildup To War, But Evidence Doesn’t Hold Up, Global Research, 10 June 2003)

We Will Never Pay, So Stop Harassing Us

From The Intercept

Sott
Cindy Sheehan and Dede Miller

To: Whom it may concern in the Internal Revenue Service (hereafter known as IRS). 

From: Cindy Sheehan, grieving mother of Spc. Casey Austin Sheehan, KIA in Iraq on 04/04/04 

From: Christy (Dede) Miller, grieving aunt of Spc. Casey Austin Sheehan, KIA in Iraq on 04/04/04 

RE: Recent Notices of Levy and SUMMONS to appear from the IRS to Cindy Sheehan 

COPY: The American People 

“How does it become a wo(man) to behave towards the American government today? I answer, that s/he cannot without disgrace be associated with it”. 

Henry David Thoreau 

We recently have received your “Notice of Levy,” and “SUMMONS.” 

Let us be clear why we are not paying your bill. 

On April 04, 2004, three of your co-workers in the Military branch of the US government came to Cindy’s home to inform us that her oldest son, Casey, had been “killed in combat in Iraq.” After Cindy somehow pulled herself from the floor after falling there screaming, “NO, NO, NO!” the Grim Reapers in Army costumes didn’t have much more to tell Casey’s shocked and devastated family, except they asked Cindy for her Social Security number. 

Let us go back a little farther than 04/04/04 – let us go back to September 11, 2001 when the US was attacked and over 3000 Americans were killed. There is much evidence that even if 9/11 was not “an inside job,” there are many irregularities and lies in the “official story.” Whatever happened that day, the tragedy was used to justify the illegal and supremely immoral invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan – and today, the current regime is still using the, “we were attacked on 9/11,” meme to justify its crimes of aggression against, not only the people of Iraq and Afghanistan, but Pakistan, Somalia, Uganda, Yemen and Palestine (via the billions the US gives to Israel every year). Not to mention the outrageous attack on the people of Libya and recent assassination of Moammar Gaddaffi for the purpose of regime change to a more pro-U.S. corporate government

Casey was only in the Army anyway because one of your colleagues in the Military branch lied to him and I think it’s been pretty well proven that these wars embarked upon by the US were based on lies – but the confessed liars such as: Donald Rumsfeld, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, and George Tenet, among others, are still roaming free and profiting off of the wars through unethical connections to the war machine, books and speaking engagements. There is also much evidence that these people and other Kleptocrats just take, take, take from us and have many, many loopholes that protect them from paying too much in income taxes from their ill-gotten gains. 

Another example of a war profiteer not paying any taxes is General Electric. Not only does GE realize vast profits from these illegal and immoral wars of terror that are currently being waged all over the world, but it also profits off of the highly dangerous nuclear power technology that is poisoning the planet as we speak. 

GE not only did not pay any taxes for the year 2010, it received a “1.1 billion dollar tax benefit” (according to CNN Money) for its tax filings in the U.S. How did GE do this when it made a 10.8 billion dollar profit in 2010? The company recorded a loss here in the U.S. of 408 million. GE is just one company or wealthy individual that has teams of lawyers and accountants to drive trucks through the loopholes the U.S. government legislates for them. Are you saying we owe more money than General Electric? 

Well, our family recorded a loss in 2004 that is priceless. How can one put a value on a human being – an oldest child – a beloved nephew? Dozens of people who knew Casey are still feeling his loss in very profound and painful ways – Cindy grew his body in her body giving him the best nutrients she could for his health – she gave birth to him after 20 hours of labor on May 29th, 1979 – she loved him and nurtured him with the milk from her own body for 14 months – she sat up with him when he was ill – she helped him with his homework and Cindy sewed his Boy Scout patches on his sash and stood with him when he was awarded his Eagle Scout Award – she sobbed when he went to war and her life was over the day his was. 

Being childless herself, Christy adores her nieces and nephews and was like a 2nd Mom to Casey – and is still very, very close to Casey’s three surviving siblings and their children, today. How can you say any of us who have had our loved ones stolen from us for lies owe you even one more penny? Does the abuse know no end? 

For almost five decades of our lives, we sisters were taxpaying, law-abiding citizens. Sure, we got the occasional traffic or parking tickets, but we dutifully paid them or went to traffic school. IRS Agent, can you imagine in your Revenuer’s heart the agony we felt when we realized that we had funded the murder of our own dear Casey? As our awareness grew, so did our disgust with our complicity in this system as the body count for totally innocent civilians rose. We now feel that for at least 30 years of taxpaying perfidy, we funded the murders and torture of millions! The only way we could live with ourselves was to stop being accessories to our government’s war crimes and crimes against humanity. 

To whoever is reading this: You’re a working stiff aren’t you? You work for one of the most evil agencies in a deeply corrupt and criminal organization, but you are still a working person! Does it bother you that the banks and Wall Street have received billions of bailout dollars from the U.S. government while you are taking money from people in our own class to do so? Does it bother you that the rich are getting wealthier and you have to try and collect your pound of flesh, or blood money, from a mother and an auntie who have already had their own flesh and blood violently ripped from their lives? 

To honor Casey’s needless sacrifice and to protect others, we will not pay these bills. You do what you have to do, but our membership in the human race demands that we withhold money from such a homicidal, nay genocidal cabal as the US government. Scores of people in this nation have taken the principled stand that we take and we feel that our moral compasses trump your “laws.” We could have taken the strategy of only paying a portion of our taxes like some do, but we feel we have no control over where our money is spent. 

If Citizens United (Citizens United v. The Federal Elections Commission) can claim that money is Free Speech and it can spend freely on its political causes, then we feel we have the same right to withhold our money in an act of moral courage and loyalty to not only our brothers, sisters and children being murdered, displaced or tortured, but to our own First Amendment Rights. We have sacrificed much and invested not only our own money, but also our very lives in our campaigns for peace and justice. We will never again co-operate with the USA in its crimes against peace

You can try and make an example of us, but we will fight you tooth and nail and we will put the wars of your government on trial. If it comes to that, peace will get its day in court, finally. Let’s put the real criminals on trial, huh? 

We strongly reiterate: we won’t help fund the terrorism of this government abroad and the economic terrorism of this government here at home. 

Like we said before, we can’t put a value on Casey’s life, and since we were not his dependents, we can’t place a value on his potential future earnings. We can only mourn his loss and the loss of any potential children he may have had and the life he may have lived if he were not killed for lies – this is a fact that we will have to deal with every day of the rest of our lives – we don’t need the additional harassment of his murderers on top of this tragic and unnecessary reality. 

Any questions?

Occupy the Courts!

Dees Illustration

Janet Phelan
Activist Post

The impetus behind #OWS is to bring together the 99% who do not own the world, and to provide a venue to address the greed and corruption which has brought America to its knees. By focusing the attention on Wall Street and the financial institutions, #OWS may be missing a prime target for the corruption that has taken over our country—the courts.

Because of decisions rendered by our courts, millions of people are losing their homes. Because of decisions rendered by courts, families are being torn apart and children are being taken from their parents. Because of decisions rendered by courts, our elderly and disabled are losing all their rights and all access to their assets through guardianship proceedings which only stand to benefit attorneys and the guardians. These “civil” proceedings are shredding the most fundamental unit of our society, which is the family.

All of these issues are adjudicated by judges.  California attorney Richard Fine attempted to address illegal payments received by State Superior court judges, via “special benefits” afforded the judges by California counties. For his groundbreaking work on this issue, he was rewarded with a year and a half in jail.

Concerns have also been raised on the massive amounts of money being laundered by judges through their home loans; a revelation which demands further scrutiny, as judges have been found to be systematically taking out loans far in excess of what they could reasonably pay back so rapidly on a judge’s salary.  The question that must be asked is — Who is paying back these loans?

Both Fine’s work and the questions raised by judges’ loans impel the question as to whether we have an impartial judiciary, or simply a crew of paid off legal hit men masquerading in black robes.

A movement to expand the focus of #OWS to include a general occupation of the courts could take several different manifestations. For example, on a designated day each week a local Occupy group could all enter a nearby courthouse and sit in on a certain department (if space permits!). Or, there could be a contingent of a local Occupy group which could make the courthouse its focal point and sit in on proceedings every day.  Each Occupy group could come to its own determination as to how best to occupy the courthouses. 

The seat of power is also occupied by the judges, not only by the financial institutions. If we are to truly take back our country, we must occupy the very places that those who have hijacked our democratic institutions now control.

Occupy the courts!
