Burn Your Bill (of Rights) at the Inauguration

Danny Schechter of asks whether this year's inaugural protests will be covered. 4 years ago, they were very thoroughly covered by the media everywhere but in the US. And this year, the Forces of Doom believe they have a mandate for further oppression. Danny's interview with FBI special agent James W. Rice doesn't auger well for the those who prize the Bill of Rights.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebrated in Santa Cruz

A coalition of local organizations invited the entire community to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by joining in activities to promote peace, equality and social justice on Monday, January 17th. People throughout Santa Cruz County commemorated the holiday by engaging in community service activities - making MLK's birthday a "Day on, not a Day off."

"We believe that helping to put food on the table of a hungry family or providing reading material to help educate someone in jail are perfect examples of things that bring us one step closer to Dr. King's dream of an equitable, just society" notes Volunteer Center Director Karen Delaney. YouthSERVE hopes to collect 1,000 books for Friends Outside and 10,000 pounds of food for Second Harvest Food Bank between Dr, Kings' Brithday and Cesar Chavez day in March.

Pat Clark, former NAACP President and one of the local organizers, hopes that people will use part of their holiday to help spread Dr. King's message of hope, equality, compassion and peace. "People think of Dr. King saying "I have a Dream." We want people to remember that Dr. King was also an advocate for ending poverty, promoting peace and taking personal responsibility for making the world a better place."

Technologies of the New World Order

a DOGSPOT investigative series: part one

I have personally witnessed the human effects of the technologies to be explained and exposed in this DOGSPOT exclusive series. If ignorance is death, then knowledge is essential to our life and liberty.

Technologies now routinely used by federal agents are so far outside of our normal expectations that witnesses report their encounters as alien visitations, if they have enough clarity of mind to report them at all. These technologies have been trickled down to the local level, and threaten the civil liberties of all Americans.
