Blogger Issued Cease and Desist Order

A Northern California Blogger is issued a cease and desist order and asked to delete information in his blog regarding the Oregon Wildlife Refuge Standoff lead by Ammon Bundy, Cliven Bundy’s son. The information on his blog is in reference to undercover informants who were part of the standoff. If info re: informants is confidential why does an ordinary Blogger have information leading to knowledge of their identities???   It never pays to be a snitch.  Nobody likes a snitch not even the justice system.

Blogger issued a Cease and Desist order for his BLOG Posts

One member of the group was murdered by federal agents with his hands in the air and unarmed they used excessive force and shot and killed an unarmed in compliance American Citizen exercising his right to first amendment protest and gathering in protest of government corruption.

The Oregon Wildlife Refuge Standoff group was arrested and charged with conspiracy. Recently acquitted in the Oregon standoff. Still facing similar charges in Nevada for another standoff with BLM officials.

After BLM became cattle rustlers and held Cliven Bundy’s herd of cattle behind locked gates on “Public Lands” managed by BLM.  BLM had snipers, dressed in tactical gear. BLM appeared as a militia group rather than BLM officials

The Bundy’s are the Rancher family that goes head to head with the corruption and underhanded dealings of the seemingly untouchable government bureau BLM. Employed to manage American citizens “PUBLIC LANDS” for Americans enjoyment and use. Government red tape, bureaucracy, and environmental issues are justifications for closing our public lands for public use.  Giving only BLM access to our public lands.

It is estimated, in the western United States  alone, hundreds of millions of acres of land is under the control of BLM

Trump has a lot of good arguments and he himself is the best argument… He knows he cannot do any worse than any other candidate for President.  His High Energy and potential is very invigorating to say the least. The best thing is he stands up for his beliefs and doesn’t worry about who is judging him for it.  He believes what he believes.

2011 Russian Protestors vs 2014 Ferguson Protestors What is the difference

2011 Russian Protestors vs 2014 Ferguson Protestors What is the difference?

Our State Department says Russian Police committed Human Rights Violations.

Where were these state department officials when Ferguson erupted with police brutality against the black protestors?

Maybe Russians don’t do Police Brutality according to State Department Standards.

Okay Russian PD you must get the State Department to Deny it ever happened in the first place.

New York Times reporter James Risen, via Twitter.

James Risen recently won the Elijah Parish Lovejoy Journalism Award for excellence in journalism.

The Pulitzer Prize winning national security reporter has long been hounded by the US Justice Department to disclose his confidential sources from his 2006 book State of War.

As the Washington Post wrote back in August, “Prosecutors want Mr. Risen’s testimony in their case against Jeffrey Sterling, a former CIA official who is accused of leaking details of a failed operation against Iran’s nuclear program. Mr. Risen properly has refused to identify his source, at the risk of imprisonment. Such confidential sources are a pillar of how journalists obtain information. If Mr. Risen is forced to reveal the identity of a source, it will damage the ability of journalists to promise confidentiality to sources and to probe government behavior.”

While accepting the Lovejoy Award, Risen had this to say:

The conventional wisdom of our day is the belief that we have had to change the nature of our society to accommodate the global war on terror. Incrementally over the last thirteen years, Americans have easily accepted a transformation of their way of life because they have been told that it is necessary to keep them safe. Americans now slip off their shoes on command at airports, have accepted the secret targeted killings of other Americans without due process, have accepted the use of torture and the creation of secret offshore prisons, have accepted mass surveillance of their personal communications, and accepted the longest continual period of war in American history. Meanwhile, the government has eagerly prosecuted whistleblowers who try to bring any of the government’s actions to light.

Americans have accepted this new reality with hardly a murmur. Today, the basic prerequisite to being taken seriously in American politics is to accept the legitimacy of the new national security state that has been created since 9/11. The new basic American assumption is that there really is a need for a global war on terror. Anyone who doesn’t accept that basic assumption is considered dangerous and maybe even a traitor.

Today, the U.S. government treats whistleblowers as criminals, much like Elijah Lovejoy, because they want to reveal uncomfortable truths about the government’s actions. And the public and the mainstream press often accept and champion the government’s approach, viewing whistleblowers as dangerous fringe characters because they are not willing to follow orders and remain silent.

The crackdown on leaks by first the Bush administration and more aggressively by the Obama administration, targeting both whistleblowers and journalists, has been designed to suppress the truth about the war on terror. This government campaign of censorship has come with the veneer of the law. Instead of mobs throwing printing presses in the Mississippi River, instead of the creation of the kind of “enemies lists” that President Richard Nixon kept, the Bush and Obama administrations have used the Department of Justice to do their bidding. But the effect is the same — the attorney general of the United States has been turned into the nation’s chief censorship officer. Whenever the White House or the intelligence community get angry about a story in the press, they turn to the Justice Department and the FBI and get them to start a criminal leak investigation, to make sure everybody shuts up.

What the White House wants is to establish limits on accepted reporting on national security and on the war on terror. By launching criminal investigations of stories that are outside the mainstream coverage, they are trying to, in effect, build a pathway on which journalism can be conducted. Stay on the interstate highway of conventional wisdom with your journalism, and you will have no problems. Try to get off and challenge basic assumptions, and you will face punishment.

Journalists have no choice but to fight back, because if they don’t they will become irrelevant.

Double Bonus: Elijah Parish Lovejoy was a minister in the first half of the 19th century who edited an abolitionist paper called the St. Louis Observer. He was murdered by a pro-slavery mob in 1837. More via Wikipedia.

My hope is we as Americans haven’t accepted it quietly but are showing our Quiet disregard for a Political Government who isn’t very democratically inclined but more facist and propaganda fed. Quiet disregard for those sworn to serve not justified by protect.

Propaganda always makes Americans Complacent & eventually disembodied from Compassion then Racism and Prejudice Snaps us back to reality.
