US states treat political activists as terrorists to stifle protest

Farther to the north, another state is experimenting with a far more audacious assault on democracy. In 2002, Minnesota liberalised the legal definition of terrorism, according to the Associated Press, to include actions "intended to interfere with the conduct of government or the right of lawful assembly." Essentially, it's Minnesota's version of the US Patriot Act.

There's an old saying that circulates in more politically radical circles: "Protest is patriotism." In this post-September 11 world of paranoia and political expediency, however, protest, an essence of democracy, has morphed into something perfectly Orwellian: terrorism.

Two recent events demonstrate how easy it is for the government to dilute words and their meanings to close off opposition and dissent. Last week, the Maryland state police disclosed that 53 nonviolent anti-war and anti-death penalty activists were tracked for 14 months in 2005 and 2006 under the state's terrorism surveillance programme, and that their names had been added to the state's and the National Security Agency's database.

Md. Police Put Activists' Names On Terror Lists (October 8, 2008 washingtonpost)
The Maryland State Police classified 53 nonviolent activists as terrorists and entered their names and personal information into state and federal databases that track terrorism suspects, the state police chief acknowledged yesterday.
Police Superintendent Terrence B. Sheridan revealed at a legislative hearing that the surveillance operation, which targeted opponents of the death penalty and the Iraq war, was far more extensive than was known when its existence was disclosed in July.

Australian PM Kevin Rudd - “Nuke strike would make 9/11 insignificant” and other weird warnings

Over the last 72 hours there has been a strange melange of cryptic messages leaked from world political leaders about what could be in store for America over the next few months. [fearmongering?]

These predictions of impending doom come from England, France, Australia and the United States. In each case there has been a press releases or news expose’ predicting huge and building threats emerging from faceless enemies in shadowy places.

Biden told the top Democratic donors
that a “generated crisis” will develop within six months and Barak Obama will need the help of community leaders to control the population as unpopular decisions are made and Americans resist.


Prime Minister Gordon Brown
on national security says, “There is another great plot building up...

Colin Powell and Madeline Albright confirm Biden’s warnings

Agence France-Presse published a press release about the Sydney meeting of the international Commission on Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament presided over by Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd who said that the world is facing a threat that will dwarf the September 11 attacks.

“The devastation that could be wreaked by one major nuclear weapons incident alone puts 9/11 and almost everything else [in] to the category of the insignificant,” Rudd said.

What are they preparing us for?

Prior to 9/11 William Kristol’s Project for a New American Century called for a catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor” to bring about a “transformational” change in U.S. foreign policy and military spending.

Many believe a false flag strike on a major western city involving a nuclear device would be the Holy Grail to those who are working so hard to manifest “transformational” change on the world stage bringing with it the complete political, economic and military transformation toward fascist world government.

Record growth in UK DNA database

Britain's DNA database is being built by stealth, critics warned, as the Government admitted record numbers of profiles were added last year.
Many of the 722,464 new samples were taken by police from people who have never been convicted of – or even charged with – a criminal offence.
The total number of DNA profiles held is estimated to be about 4.8 million. Some 350,000 of those taken last year were from children aged 14 and under.
Chris Huhne, the Liberal Democrat home affairs spokesman, said: "The Government is rapidly building the world's biggest DNA database, by stealth. Guilt or innocence and the negative effect the database has on children and ethnic minorities are of no concern to ministers."

Prenatal cell phone exposure tied to behavior (reuters.com Jul 29, 2008,SOURCE: Epidemiology, July 2008)
Children whose mothers used cell phones frequently during pregnancy and who are themselves cell phone users are more likely to have behavior problems, new research shows.
Kheifets and her team looked at a group of 13,159 children ....
...research has shown that children using cell phones are exposed to more radiofrequency energy than adults, because their ears and brains are smaller.
...children with both prenatal and postnatal cell phone exposure were 80 percent more likely to have abnormal or borderline scores on tests evaluating emotional problems, conduct problems, hyperactivity, or problems with peers.

Mobile use 'increases cancer risk in children, according to research presented at a British conference.
Scientists have warned children to only use mobile phones in emergencies, after a Swedish study indicated that under-16s were more at risk of radiation from mobile phones because their brains and nervous systems were still developing.
The research was reported at the first international conference on mobile phones and health in London.

Interception Modernisation Programme

Every call you make, every e-mail you send, every website you visit - I’ll be watching you. That is the hope of Sir David Pepper who, as the director of GCHQ, the government’s secret eavesdropping agency in Cheltenham, is plotting the biggest surveillance system ever created in Britain.
It is intended to fight terrorism and crime. Civil liberties groups, however, say it poses an unprecedented intrusion into ordinary citizens’ lives. Aimed at placing a “live tap” on every electronic communication in Britain, it will dwarf other “big brother” surveillance projects such as the number plate recognition system and the spread of CCTV http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article4882622.ece
