Jury Nullification May Be The Only Salvation For The Antiwar Activists
2010.10.06 20:55:12

"…law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."

--Thomas Jefferson

The Supreme Court's decision in Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project to uphold the "material support" of terrorism statute (18 U. S. C. §2339B(a)(1)) has truly turned the law into the tyrant’s weapon. In their June 21, 2010 decision they wrote, "Congress and the Executive are uniquely positioned to make principled distinctions between activities that will further terrorist conduct and undermine United States foreign policy, and those that will not." With these words the Supreme Court made a criminal of anyone that has had any contact with an organization on the State Department’s list of foreign terrorist organizations. This author is astounded at the court’s naiveté in proclaiming that the government is able to make such "principled distinctions". They’ve abdicated their role as guardians of our liberties by rubber stamping this repressive law.

Philadelphia Libertarians and Socialists Protest the FBI's Raids on Antiwar Activists (video)
2010.09.29 20:25:38

In the face of the government's attempts to silence antiwar activism, libertarians and socialists came together to protest. The object of their outrage was the series of raids conducted by the FBI on antiwar activists in Minnesota, Chicago, Michigan, and North Carolina; and the issuance of subpoenas to appear before a grand jury to many of the same. While the government claims that the raids are seeking evidence of material support of terrorism, the peace activists insist that it is a fishing expedition intended to harass. Below is video of the Philadelphia protest that took place on September 28, 2010:

Principled Nonvoting: The Beginning of Disengaging From the State
2010.09.28 10:13:35

Labor day has come and gone, and there is an election this November. The campaign season is on. The airwaves, the internet, and what’s left of the print media are saturated with political ads. All of this leads many Americans to wonder who they’re going to vote for. Quite a few realize that the choice is essentially limited to the Democratic scoundrel or the Republican scoundrel.

Unity at a Peace Rally
2010.09.13 00:34:52

Just like the September 11th of nine years ago this year’s was also a perfect late Summer day in West Chester, Pennsylvania. On this sad anniversary of the horrible terrorist attacks I had the pleasure of joining the weekly peace vigil held by United for Peace & Justice.

2010.09.03 21:43:54

Finally, a legal travesty is over. It all started on May 11, 2010 with three activists handing out Fully Informed Jury Association literature in front of the federal courthouse in Allentown, PA. It ended on September 1, 2010 with George Donnelly being sentenced to time served and paying a $525.00 fine. All of his property was returned though the video he took of the incident was deleted from his camera.

Why Philadelphia’s Licensing and Taxing of Blogs is Creeping Fascism
2010.08.28 20:59:07

The recent decision by the City of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania to require a Business Privilege License (cost $300) of blogs and that the blogs be taxed on any profits has generated a well deserved outcry from free marketers across the country. Many have invoked Chief Justice John Marshall’s famous words, "The power to tax involves the power to destroy." They are right, this will be the end of independent blogging in Philadelphia and around the world when this spreads across countries.

2010.08.09 10:32:22

This time it started out differently. Adam Mueller and Pete Eyre from Liberty on Tour were there with Antonio Musumeci (otherwise known as "Bile" for his blog, Blog of Bile) and, of course, Julian Heicklen.

Police State New York: Video of Heicklen’s Arrest 6/14/2010
2010.06.22 04:26:28

The place just isn’t the same. Going near the courts in lower Manhattan, New York City seems under siege. Streets are blocked off with mechanized metal barriers. Police from all levels of government, local, state, and federal, abound. Some are busy inspecting under cars with mirrors. Some aren’t so busy standing in little guard houses keeping an eye on their surroundings. Others just milling about. This is the surreal world we walked into.

Seattle’s Blue Gang Extortion Racket
2010.06.19 05:16:08

The recent video of Seattle Police Patrol Officer Ian P. Walsh punching a 17-year-old woman in the face as she tries to help her friend evade him has caused much controversy. There is an understandable reaction among many decrying the young women’s lack of respect for authority. This is correct, they do lack respect for the police, but the question is why?

Oh, Come, All Ye Hateful
2010.06.11 19:22:49

There is an increasingly vocal and aggressive direction being taken by some Christians. That many American Christians supported the Bush administration and its wars is well known. At present the level of dehumanization of Muslims and outright advocacy of genocide is becoming much louder.

2010.06.07 07:11:17

FREE GEORGE DONNELLY Rally at the Edward N. Cahn US Court House and Federal Building in Allentown, PA on June 4 2010.

If George's video camera's footage is brought to discovery we shall know the truth! SHOW US THE VIDEO! Federal Marshal's are liars!

TV and Newspaper Coverage of Rally for George Donnelly
2010.06.06 07:58:23

The rally on Friday June 4, 2010 in Allentown, PA demanding the end of George Donnelly's legal ordeal was a smashing success. About thirty people marched in support holding signs and chanting. All was peaceful, the US Marshals behaved themselves this time.

The local TV station WFMZ covered the march:



A local weekly Spanish language newspaper, El Torero (no website), also covered us. Their next issue coming out on Thursday should have pictures and an article.

George Donnelly, Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA) activist, was wrongly charged with assaulting a US Marshal on May 11, 2010.

A big thank you to all who participated.

Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA) Activist Arrested in Allentown, PA
2010.05.13 07:23:54

So this is what we've become, a land where peacefully handing out information the government doesn't like gets you arrested. The Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA) seeks only to inform people of their rights and powers as jurors. That the government doesn't like this is understandable, wrong but understandable. That they arrested one of them is unpardonable.

Global Ecosystemic Meltdown!
2010.03.02 09:42:38

Global Ecosystemic Meltdown! Sounds scary, doesn’t it? That is the latest term for global warming coined by Daphne Wysham, a major climate alarmist at the Institute for Policy Studies. In a recent podcast interview with OpEdNews.com’s Rob Kall titled "DAPHNE WYSHAM climate change- how to respond to global warming deniers, when they point to snow 02 17 2010" the two shamelessly discussed how to propagandize the world about the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) hoax.
