The cruel rise of solitary confinement in America.
By Andrew Gumbel, October 11 2013

In 1831, Alexis de Tocqueville visited the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia to observe first-hand the effects of a peculiar — and, at the time, entirely novel — form of incarceration. The Quakers, who had opened the prison two years earlier, believed that long-term solitary confinement was an ideal form of religious penitence (whence the termpenitentiary) and would hasten prisoners’ rehabilitation and reintegration into society. They saw it not as extreme punishment but as a progressive idea, far preferable to the giant holding pens typical of the age, where mutilations and violence among prisoners were common, and spiritual betterment all but unthinkable.

The strange case of Zacarias Moussaoui: FBI refused to investigate man charged in September 11 attacks
By Patrick Martin, 5 January 2002

The case of Zacarias Moussaoui raises many questions about the conduct of the FBI and other US intelligence agencies in the period leading up the September 11. It is the clearest example of the almost inexplicable refusal on the part of these agencies to take any action that could have prevented the bloodiest terrorist attack in American history.

Moussaoui was arraigned January 3 on six counts of conspiracy to commit murder and terrorism in the September 11 attacks. A French-born man of Moroccan Arab descent, Moussaoui refused “in the name of Allah” to make a plea, and a plea of not guilty was entered for him at the request of his public defender. (more…)

Sales BabbleMyths about United States Sovereignty and the International Criminal Court
From Amicc.org [Excerpt]

Due in significant part to the expert US team that helped draft the Court’s Statute, the crimes over which it is competent and the ways it can obtain jurisdiction over individuals are all firmly rooted in traditional international law and practice that the United States has long recognized and followed.

Myth 1: The ICC is merely another attempt by the UN to gain control and create a world government.

Neither the Court, nor the Assembly of State Parties, which together make up the ICC, is a UN body. Even though the ICC was negotiated at UN forums.

Myth 2: The ICC will be made up of countries that will use the Court for politically motivated attacks. (more…)

Truth or DareDying to Make a Profit
By Chris Ryan with Charles St-Onge, 2009

Part 1

Health insurance companies still want to convince the public that they can manage their duty to their shareholders without effecting patient care, and that they are in fact a force for good when it comes to quality of treatment and increasing health outcomes. If they manage patient care properly and reduce costs, will that not help bring down insurance costs for everyone? Is not some amount of “rationing of care” necessary to keep costs under control? (Most Americans live in dread of the idea of “rationed care,” which seems like such an un-American concept. The truth is that care is already rationed.)

This may be true, if the motive for the rationing was purely to benefit the policyholder. The rationing could then even be construed as the insurance company upholding its fiduciary duty to the insured. (more…)

Floating House - cgtutsGOODBYE PROPERTY RIGHTS
By Michael S. Coffman (2012) [Edited]

Since the early 1970s there has been a systematic and deliberate effort to destroy private property rights in America through the warm and fuzzy goal of sustainable development.

David Rockefeller co-founded the Club of Rome in 1968 as an elite, somewhat occult think tank. The Club of Rome published Limits to Growth in 1972, which called for severe limits on human population and state control of all development in the world to achieve “sustainable development.” Sustainable development was eventually formalized into a United Nations global action plan called Agenda 21, which President Bush committed the U.S. to at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. President Clinton put into action by the creation of Sustainable America in 1996. If fully implemented, private property rights will be a thing of the past. (more…)
