Corporations distributed copyright infringement software to takeover Internet?
Is the US Government telling other countries it has to turn over citizens who linked on blogs to sites that may have had file sharing on them? If you link to a website, unknowingly that may have copyrighted materials on it without written permission should you be labeled a felon and serve 5, or so, years in prison? Should the US invade other countries to put their citizens in prison for the same offenses?
Why should corporations see to it citizens are punished for activities they encouraged? Why should corporations be able to bribe politicians with millions so you go to prison as a felon?

The basis of this investigation
In the following pages we will take the reader from the opium-growing mountains of the Far East's Golden Triangle, to the offices of opium wholesalers in the expatriate Chinese districts of Bangkok, Rangoon, and Singapore; we will take him through the bonded warehouses, shipping lines and air freight companies of old-line British trading companies who control the Chinese expatriate wholesalers; we will lead him through the maze of financial channels that fund the Far East's opium trade, to the august portals of Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation and other top British banks who control the financing topdown; we will take him across the Pacific to the ports of entry for heroin into the United States, to the skyscraper offices of the Canadian banks and corporations who finance, ship, and protect the heroin en route to the United States; and, finally, we will guide the reader down the family trees of the Canada-based Zionist financiers, to their contact-points in the world of organized crime and heroin distribution. When this is done, we will have reconstructed the Annual Report of Dope, Incorporated, including balance sheet, board of directors, senior operating officers, table of organization, and subsidiaries.
At the conclusion, the reader will know and understand more about the personnel and operations of illegal drugs — the world's biggest business since the days of opium-pusher Adam Smith — than the law enforcement authorities of the United States and other countries knew until recently. In the files of these agencies, in the minds of solitary investigators, and, to a surprising extent, in the public record itself, the pieces of the puzzle have existed for years. Fitting them together into a single picture is the task of this investigation. But the puzzle is not a jigsaw game, in which the picture is assembled by fitting the pieces together side-by-side. As a first approximation, it would be better for the reader to imagine a set of clear plastic overlays, each of which contains part of the picture; laid one on top of the other, they complete the puzzle.
The different overlays of this puzzle are these: 1) The detailed record assembled by American and other investigators of the mechanics of the opium trade from the Golden Triangle down to opium's ports of departure to the rest of the world; 2) Pinpointed identification of opium wholesalers, largely in the Chinese expatriate community, including the names of leading bankers; 3) A comprehensive profile of British finance in the Far East, revolving around the Hong Kong financial center and its leading bank, the Hongkong and Shanghai, including the web of British ties to the Chinese expatriate banking community throughout the area; 4) An exhaustive grid of the British control over means of laundering dirty money in the hundreds of billions of dollars, including "offshore" banking, gold, and diamonds; 5) A grid of the huge quantity of public record material showing the integration of British Far East and dirty money financial] operations worldwide with the top level of British foreign policy-making, centered in the Royal Institute of International Affairs; 6) The similar public record of evidence of strategic agreement between Great Britain and the Maoist People's Republic of China, going back to negotiations between British opium-runners and Mao Tse-tung, under the auspices of the Royal Institute of International Affairs; 7) Twenty years of official documentation — from American, Japanese, Taiwanese, and Soviet sources — that the People's Republic of China grows and exports opium not only to earn foreign exchange, but to fund secret intelligence operations, through Chinese expatriates; 8) A comprehensive grid of the intimate links between all these elements — British old-line opium-runners, British dirty money operations, Chinese expatriate overseas operations, British-Chinese policy agreement — with the "Canadian" connection to American organized crime; 9) The international web of the British-centered "Zionist lobby," and its special function in gold and diamond-related dirty money operations, laundering of dirty money, financing of international terrorism, and financial control of the Canada-U.S. drug channels; 10) Lastly, a gridding that demonstrates that the leading controllers of the opium war against the United States are not only connected by interlocking directorates and other business ties but by ties of "blood" that constitute this web under one family.
The resulting picture is comprehensive: the entire mass of detailed, documented evidence fits together into a single picture, stretching from the present day back through the British origins of the opium trade in the time of Adam Smith.
Frankenstein Foods, The Genie is out of the bottle

Monsanto and other chemical companies have thug lawyers and thug academics to keep scientists who expose the fraud in line. Expose the major corporations for their genetically modified foods scam, get retaliated against. What you eat can kill you, make you sick, make you sterile. Are populations being attacked by the corporate world? Are you a peasant slave, like in feudal times? Well, watch the RT America documentary.
Aspartame is Big Pharma poise brought to you by Donald Rumsfeld. I kid you not, [video and post]
While I’ll be the first to admit that I’m given to hyperbole at times, there’s a farmer out there in America who most people have probably never heard of, but who is single-handedly changing the world. His name is Joel Salatin – a self-described Christian, libertarian, environmentalist, lunatic farmer from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
If you haven’t heard of Salatin before, I implore you to look this guy up whether you give a squawk about farming or not. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
What could possibly be so special about a nutty farmer from Virginia? Salatin considers farming a ministry of healing the land, and is devoted to the vocation with a degree of evangelical zeal that knocks your socks off.
His unconventional and even subversive views on farming – views that he puts into practice every day at Polyface Farms – are completely upending our modern understanding of food production. How’s that for hyperbole?
Salatin’s farming innovations start from a few simple insights that prove you don’t have to sacrifice the environment, the economy or human health to feed the world.
First, Salatin believes that food production requires primarily a biological approach, not a mechanical approach. That seems self-evident right? But our current industrial monoculture farming and industrial warehousing of protein (farm animals) is anything but biological. As Salatin explains, no civilization can be healthier than the life energy of the food it eats. If the food goes in lifeless – full of preservatives, antibiotics and chemicals we can’t pronounce – it has nothing left to give to create new flesh and bones.
Salatin’s innovative techniques focus on biomimicry, harnessing natural relationships between grass, herbivores, birds and insects to simulate “nature’s template”. What this means in practice is that Salatin’s focus is on periodic disturbance of grasslands through steady movement of livestock to radically increase soil fertility, a process that mimics the natural grazing habits of herbivores in the wild (think bison on the American plains).
This relationship is harnessed by moving his cows every day into new sections of pasture (paddocks) and following that movement with mobile chicken pens. The cow manure fertilizes the pasture and the chickens follow pecking through the insect-rich manure, spreading out the manure even more and improving fertilization of the pasture.
The proof as they say is in the pudding. When his father purchased the farm years ago, it was largely barren rock and degraded soil thanks to years of monoculture farming. Today, he has created rich new topsoil that now completely covers the barren rocks.
And while the warehousing of cows today in feedlots requires intensive use of antibiotics and pharmaceuticals to keep cows healthy (and ironically has created pathogens that have become more and more dangerous to humans), Salatin’s cows are given no hormones, nutritional supplements or antibiotics and remain far healthier, going through at least 10 lactation cycles on average.
Second, Salatin understands that biomass is the key to yield. As Salatin explains, “it’s not until you come to the epiphany that soil is fundamentally a biological community, not a mechanical blob will you understand anything about soil fertility”. For Salatin, soil is “a living, breathing, vibrant community so populous that in one double handful of healthy soil more individual life exists than there are people on the face of the earth.”
One of the greatest tragedies of our modern understanding of food according to Salatin is that never before in human history has food waste been dumped in anaerobic landfills where it lies in state for centuries and is not allowed to naturally decompose through composting to add fertility back to the soil. All of the pesticides and industrial fertilizers we use today in our monoculture farming could be shelved permanently with a commitment to quit landfilling the incredibly rich biomass of decaying food waste and instead let it do its job – replenish topsoil through the natural process of decomposition.
Third, Salatin says that farming is about thinking smaller and more local. Today’s massive monoculture food system is only possible because of cheap energy. Salatin is a strong believer that the era of peak oil is here and that our days of cheap energy are numbered. Consequently, so too are the days when we will be able to cost-efficiently get away with shipping produce thousands of miles from say its production in California to our tables in New York.
The solution? To go forward, we have to go backward. Back to the smaller local farms, family vegetable gardens, and locally grown food that have sustained human populations since the beginning of our time on earth.
Ideas such as his are highly subversive to industrial food conglomerates like Monsanto and Cargill who dismissively claim that such thinking is naïve – that we will never be able to feed the world’s population by thinking locally. But Salatin demonstrates otherwise.
Specifically, he tells the story of an urban farm in St. Louis – a twelfth of an acre farmed by several twenty-somethings dedicated to intensive biomass recycling and organic farming. The farm sits on reclaimed land occupied by a former rundown condominium that had become a haven for crack addicts.
The city demolished the condominium and the young urban farmers moved in. The soil was so degraded that when the urban farmers dug a posthole to hold a trellis, the hole went through garbage — discarded electrical wires, old blue jeans and teacups. Today, this tiny farm produces all of the produce to feed twenty people year-round.
Yes, there’s lots of grim news in the world today. But innovators like Salatin are opening eyes and changing the world in monumentally significant ways. If you want a reason to be wildly optimistic, imagine a future of local abundance where individual citizens and local farms once again produce the food we eat. Salatin will convince you that such a scenario is possible… And it’s coming sooner than we think.
My daughter, Epcot Center, Florida, mid 1990's. We were like two peas in a pod, inseparable, so I thought ... we need not use words, just exchange looks to know what each other was thinking. Something I have never had with my own father for even 5 seconds my entire life.
My daughter 17, or so, years ago. She hasn't called me "Daddy" or said "I love you" since I went to prison for pepper spraying a potential mugger who demanded my wallet saying he'd kill me after he attacked me. The real reason I got prison is I interfered with police organized crime in Stafford Springs, Connecticut. [That story and pic of my mugshot]

The US Government seems to have the mentality of gangsters. Listen to these guys talk in below video. It is the Documentary, "The End". London area gangsters talk about their lives. How isn't the US Government, just a bunch of thugs, based on what they do, not what they say?
I really like the way the music is done in the above documentary. Nick Page knows what he is doing.

Excerpt of lawsuit which was easiest for a judge just to throw out of court: 25- K) FALSE ARREST, NOT INVOLVING DCF: Steven G. Erickson. In the case of Steven G. Erickson, It is Plaintiff KM Dickson’s belief and knowledge that the testimony of Steven G. Erickson was truthful, in that Erickson believes that he wasn’t getting equal protection and service being a Stafford Springs downtown Connecticut landlord.
Mr. Erickson, formerly of Stafford, CT, wrote letters to the editor critical of police and Connecticut courts and wrote President Bush a letter about how the economy was hurt by downtown (Stafford) property and small business owners getting a fair shake in courts and adequate police help and service. Mr. Erickson proposed Civilian Oversight of Police to State Senator Tony Guglielmo and former State Representative Mordasky. Mordasky’s aid, “Rosemarie,” advised Erickson that Erickson should sell his property and leave Connecticut before the Connecticut State Police retaliated for the laws Erickson proposed directing police powers, and for what Mr. Erickson had written critical of police in newspapers, and for being a “Big Mouth.”
Mr. Erickson also attests that the Connecticut State Police were bragging that Mr. Erickson would be going to prison and run out of town after Erickson was attacked by Brian Caldwell on Erickson’s property when Erickson returned home from a double shift of work. Caldwell had told Erickson’s tenants Caldwell would kill Erickson when Erickson got home, and had threatened Erickson, harassed Erickson via voicemail, and beating on Erickson door after midnight, yelling that Caldwell, would cut Erickson’s penis off if Caldwell caught Erickson outside Erickson’s home.
According to Mr. Erickson, Connecticut State Troopers, Amaral and Langlais refused to take Erickson’s complaint against Erickson’s assailant who had jumped Erickson and tried to rob Erickson, nor would they take the complaint of witness Sue Johnston, nor that of Clayton Varno. Instead the police only arrested Erickson, refusing to view Erickson’s injuries, and then later committing perjury of these facts to get me convicted of overreacting to being beaten during a robbery attempt using pepper spray.
Apparently, Judge Jonathan Kaplan of Rockville Connecticut Court stated that Erickson was guilty and was going to prison before Erickson’s trial began. A videotape was shown to the jury of how to find Erickson guilty, but nothing about innocence or reasonable doubt, tainting them. (XXX, evidence #)
It is Erickson’s belief that Judge Kaplan informed Erickson’s attorney, Michael H. Agranoff (Stafford, CT), that Agranoff was not allowed to dispute police perjury, the prosecution, nor defend Erickson.
Erickson sent an email to the former Connecticut State Police Commission Arthur L. Spada in late October 2002, the day before Erickson was to be sentenced, asking Spada to remove the US Department of Justice webpage on Community Policing off the Connecticut State Police website, stating the policies were not being followed. Erickson indicated that Erickson was sending a copy of the email to the US Department of Justice.
Erickson believes the Connecticut State Police, the prosecutors, Erickson’s lawyer, and Judge Jonathan Kaplan were acting in collusion to ensure Erickson’s conviction to prevent Erickson from suing for Civil Rights violations and to keep Erickson from lodging complaints and exposing corruption within the courts and Connecticut State Police.
Erickson further asserts that Judge Jonathan Kaplan appeared to reference the email Erickson sent to Commissioner Spada at Plaintiff’s sentencing, indicating to Erickson their was illegal collusion between Judge Jonathan J. Kaplan and Connecticut State Police Officers to ensure Erickson was convicted and given the maximum penalties allowed.
Mr. Erickson was sent to an overcrowded prison and was singled out for abuse by guards referencing Erickson’s feud with the Connecticut State Police. Mr. Erickson was held in prison longer than his stated release date, wasn’t allowed to take classes in prison as further harassment, and was told that Erickson wasn’t allowed in Stafford, Connecticut upon release by LT Desso, also a Stafford town police officer.
Mr. Erickson asserts that he was told by his parole officer at the Enfield Police Station, that Erickson wasn’t allowed to make complaints against police officers, nor contact the media regarding Erickson’s case or face more prison time. These are clearly federal color of law, deprivation of rights, and violation of federally protected activities, and first amendment violations.
When Mr. Erickson was turned over to adult probation in Manchester Connecticut, Erickson was given told by Angela K. that she would violate Erickson’s probation if she received any more calls regarding Erickson and would violate Erickson’s probation if Erickson didn’t leave the State of Connecticut. Mr. Erickson was given an hour to pack and leave the State of Connecticut to avoid further persecution and fraudulent prosecution.
A must see by Naomi Wolf http://endofamericamovie.com/about.php If you are an American, and even if you are not, this is a must see documentary. The most basic questions about government, freedom, and your life are discussed. Please share this documentary with others. Please buy a full quality DVD.
I rarely agree on even half of what most politically active people have to say. Even if these people are considered to be likewise concerned. I may agree almost 100% with Naomi Wolf.
Was Jim Morrison's Death caused by Connecticut Police?
Text with below video: Jim Morrison of The Doors was maced backstage in New Haven, Connecticut. The police officer who maced Morrison did not realize he was soon to go on stage, trying to kick him out of the backstage area, macing Morrison. Morrison complained about being maced on stage. Connecticut police took that as a reason to beat up Morrison and arrest him. Connecticut police blacklist those who are critical of police. Jim Morrison's luck ran out with police nationally. Were police in the State of Connecticut indirectly responsible for Morrison's early death? Are policing and rigged courts in the US responsible for early deaths, a failed economy, and the downfall of America?
This video uploader's continued thoughts on US policing and Connecticut [found here]
I contacted elected officials in Connecticut prior to 9/11. I was concerned with police promoting crack cocaine and heroin sales in Stafford Springs. Connecticut State Police had a "business" relationship with prostitutes and other criminals, allegedly. They also, allegedly, paid police informants to help in their revenue collection, asset confiscation, gun confiscation, retaliation, and take "hot girls" from their spouses or significant others, ploys.
For proposing Civilian Oversight of Police and court reform legislation to CT State Senator Anthony "Tony" Guglielmo and John A. Kissel, they turned my name into the Commissioner of the Connecticut State Police. My name was then given to officers at roll call, so I could be harassed, terrorized, set up for false arrest and prison to lose the 3 houses I owned, my contracting business, and my daughter.
Don't trust these people. They break rules, rip you off and are answerable to organized crime, banks and offshore corporate owners. Don't let them send you to camp, or kill you for free. Do more than occupy Wall St., make it count now. They want armed conflict which they''ll win. Let's give them a "Bathrobes and Slippers, Rebellion" where we just sit at home, not pay taxes, not consume, and the energy companies and pirate corporations will see the shot across their bows. If you pay taxes you are supporting Al Qaeda, a CIA program, so you are financially supporting terrorism and you can be jailed secretly indefinitely with no hearing, no records, given this new legislation. Shame on US Senators and Congresspeople, you have shown what side you are on.
