The USA reacted to our own Reichstag fire on 9/11/1 by tearing up the Constitution and instituting a new regime that has no habeas corpus! Since that foul day, an American citizen has been held unconstitutionally for 6 years, tortured and abused, kept from family and friends and more importantly, LAWYERS. Join the ACLU in a day-long lobbying effort to restore Freedom and Demcracy! June 26th---I'll be there, reporting!
On June 26, you’ll join activists from around the country to demand the restoration of habeas corpus and all our constitutional rights. We’ll be in touch with you in the coming days, to tell you more about the Day of Action to help you plan your trip.
As part of our Day of Action, we’ll deliver petitions to Congress from people all over the country who are demanding a return to our fundamental values of freedom and fairness. We need 100,000 signatures. Please add your name now if you haven't already.
And after you sign, ask 5 friends to sign the petition as well.
Ask Your Friends to Sign our Petition and Join You in Washington, D.C.
Invite your friends to join you at the June 26th Day of Action to Restore Law and Justice!
We need as many voices as possible to call on Congress to restore our rights on June 26th. Help make our presence on Capitol Hill even stronger by telling your friends and family about the Day of Action to Restore Law and Justice and urging them to join you on June 26th.
Enroll now! I will love to set up a means of meeting everyone at this event. Last time, several readers came to the Peace March and we had a great time. I have done this in the past. It is great fun and you get to see the insides of the Halls of Congress.
Last time I did this, Trent Lott and I got in a big fight and we yelled at each other and I broke the story that a Senator was jumping to the Democratic Party and he would lose his leadership position! This is becasue an aide told me this earlier that day.
The news spread like wildfire and was on NPR that evening. Heh. You can, if you hang out there and needle people enough, learn things they want to hide and I want to discuss several things of importance. Both the Democrats and the Republicans have serious problems dealing with reality.
The main thing on this trip is to get our blasted Constitution back! Our Founding Fathers were very, very clear about habeas corpus: all of them faced possible execution as rebels but they won the Revolution by the skin of their teeth and the help of France. They wanted full protections for anyone arrested and Padilla is a perfect example of the sort of person habeas corpus covers: someone defying the state!
These laws were so important to our Founding Fathers they put it not in the Amendments like the right to bear arms but in the document itself! And destroying this destroys the entire American Revolution. Half of the revolutionaries were slave owners and they polluted the Constitution with slave laws which were finally cut out via a major Civil War, the worst war we ever fought.
The Democrats have made little headway in restoring our Constitution and it is now time to begin twisting arms...big time. And I want to twist the arms of Republicans, the few that are left in my own state of New York. And I want to warn the Democratic leadership they have little time to waste. And they must shut down Gitmo, a Nazi concentration camp that is in a Communist country. Not to mention the host of CIA secret prisons.
If anyone wants to go, please sign up and we can do all this in a group, if we want. And I would like to eat out together, too!
