The Pipeline Being Constructed By Nazi Americans

Infographic: Schools Are Failing LGBT Youth and Funneling Them into Prison



See also: Beyond Bullying: How Hostile School Climate Perpetuates the School-to-Prison Pipeline for LGBT Youth by Preston Mitchum and Aisha Moodie-Mills

Hostile school climates pave the way for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, or LGBT, youth to spend less time in school and more time on the streets, thus increasing the likelihood of entering into the school-to-prison pipeline. By promoting safe, welcoming, and affirming school climates, policymakers and school administrators can ensure that LGBT youth—who all too often face harassment and discrimination in school—will excel.

Make no mistake, hostile school environments encompass much more than peer-on-peer bullying: dress codes, unenumerated policies, lack of access to LGBT resources, and zero tolerance policies, for example, all feed the school-to-prison pipeline.

The numbers are clear: The actions and inactions of adults in schools derail LGBT youth and unless these climates become more welcoming, schools will continue to fail LGBT youth by pushing them into a cycle of unfair criminalization.

Trust me. They did it to me. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BzauHnHc3bOJbzhUR04wbkEzYUU/edit?usp=sharing

The Battle Against Using People As Human Battering Instruments

First the motivation and the inspiration: The Great Lady Who Hit The Nail On The Head

  Establishing power through the courts using perception, lying, and telling you that you are worthless; telling others to use behaviors to tear you apart. All the traits of psychopaths and the next generation in the making.

Regardless of the facts, the perception is to make you the loser and them the winner. To dehumanize, to turn you into an asshole. To place women in their places.

Time To Buckle Up Your Seatbelts, Folks. You’re In For A Bumpy Ride


Putting Big Brother in the Driver’s Seat: V2V Transmitters, Black Boxes; Drones
February 10, 2014
By John W. Whitehead

“It’s a future where you don’t forget anything…In this new future you’re never lost…We will know your position down to the foot and down to the inch over time…Your car will drive itself, it’s a bug that cars were invented before computers…you’re never lonely…you’re never bored…you’re never out of ideas… We can suggest where you go next, who to meet, what to read...What’s interesting about this future is that it’s for the average person, not just the elites.”—Google CEO Eric Schmidt on his vision of the future

Time to buckle up your seatbelts, folks. You’re in for a bumpy ride.

We’re hurtling down a one-way road toward the Police State at mind-boggling speeds, the terrain is getting more treacherous by the minute, and we’ve passed all the exit ramps. From this point forward, there is no turning back, and the signpost ahead reads “Danger.”

Indeed, as I document in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, we’re about to enter a Twilight Zone of sorts, one marked by drones, smart phones, GPS devices, smart TVs, social media, smart meters, surveillance cameras, facial recognition software, online banking, license plate readers and driverless cars—all part of the interconnected technological spider’s web that is life in the American police state, and every new gadget pulls us that much deeper into the sticky snare.

In this Brave New World awaiting us, there will be no communication not spied upon, no movement untracked, no thought unheard. In other words, there will be nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.

We’re on the losing end of a technological revolution that has already taken hostage our computers, our phones, our finances, our entertainment, our shopping, our appliances, and now, it’s focused its sights on our cars. As if the government wasn’t already able to track our movements on the nation’s highways and byways by way of satellites, GPS devices, and real-time traffic cameras, government officials are now pushing to require that all new vehicles come installed with black box recorders and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, ostensibly to help prevent crashes.

Yet strip away the glib Orwellian doublespeak, and what you will find is that these black boxes and V2V transmitters, which will not only track a variety of data, including speed, direction, location, the number of miles traveled, and seatbelt use, but will also transmit this data to other drivers, including the police, are little more than Trojan Horses, stealth attacks on our last shreds of privacy, sold to us as safety measures for the sake of the greater good, all the while poised to wreak havoc on our lives.

Black boxes and V2V transmitters are just the tip of the iceberg, though. The 2015 Corvette Stingray will be outfitted with a performance data recorder which “uses a camera mounted on the windshield and a global positioning receiver to record speed, gear selection and brake force,” but also provides a recording of the driver’s point of view as well as recording noises made inside the car. As journalist Jaclyn Trop reports for the New York Times, “Drivers can barely make a left turn, put on their seatbelts or push 80 miles an hour without their actions somehow, somewhere being tracked or recorded.” Indeed, as Jim Farley, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Ford Motor Company all but admitted, corporations and government officials already have a pretty good sense of where you are at all times: “We know everyone who breaks the law, we know when you’re doing it. We have GPS in your car, so we know what you’re doing.”

Now that the government and its corporate partners-in-crime know where you’re going and how fast you’re going when in your car, the next big hurdle will be to know how many passengers are in your car, what contraband might be in your car (and that will largely depend on whatever is outlawed at the moment, which could be anything from Sudafed cold medicine to goat cheese), what you’re saying and exactly what you’re doing within the fiberglass and steel walls of your vehicle. That’s where drones come in.

Once drones take to the skies en masse in 2015, there will literally be no place where government agencies and private companies cannot track your movements. These drones will be equipped with cameras that provide a live video feed, as well as heat sensors, radar and thermal imaging devices capable of seeing through the walls of your car. Some will be capable of peering at figures from 20,000 feet up and 25 miles away. They will be outfitted with infrared cameras and radar which will pierce through the darkness. They can also keep track of 65 persons of interest at once. Some drones are already capable of hijacking Wi-Fi networks and intercepting electronic communications such as text messages. The Army has developed drones with facial recognition software, as well as drones that can complete a target-and-kill mission without any human instruction or interaction. These are the ultimate killing and spying machines. There will also be drones armed with “less-lethal” weaponry, including bean bag guns and tasers.

And of course all of this information, your every movement—whether you make a wrong move, or appear to be doing something suspicious, even if you don’t do anything suspicious, the information of your whereabouts, including what stores and offices you visit, what political rallies you attend, and what people you meet—will be tracked, recorded and streamed to a government command center, where it will be saved and easily accessed at a later date.

By the time you add self-driving cars into the futuristic mix, equipped with computers that know where you want to go before you do, you’ll be so far down the road to Steven Spielberg’s vision of the future as depicted in Minority Report that privacy and autonomy will be little more than distant mirages in your rearview mirror. The film, set in 2054 and based on a short story by Philip K. Dick, offered movie audiences a special effect-laden techno-vision of a futuristic world in which the government is all-seeing, all-knowing and all-powerful. And if you dare to step out of line, dark-clad police SWAT teams will bring you under control.

Mind you, while critics were dazzled by the technological wonders displayed in Minority Report, few dared to consider the consequences of a world in which Big Brother is, literally and figuratively, in the driver’s seat. Even the driverless cars in Minority Report answer to the government’s (and its corporate cohorts’) bidding.

Likewise, we are no longer autonomous in our own cars. Rather, we are captive passengers being chauffeured about by a robotic mind which answers to the government and its corporate henchmen. Soon it won’t even matter whether we are seated behind the wheel of our own vehicles, because it will be advertisers and government agents calling the shots.

Case in point: devices are now being developed for European cars that would allow police to stop a car remotely, ostensibly to end police chases. Google is partnering with car manufacturers in order to integrate apps and other smartphone-like technology into vehicles, in order to alert drivers to deals and offers at nearby businesses. As Patrick Lin, professor of Stanford’s School of Engineering, warns, in a world where third-party advertisers and data collectors control a good deal of the content we see on a daily basis, we may one day literally be driven to businesses not because we wanted to go there, but because someone paid for us to be taken there.

Rod Serling, creator of the beloved sci fi series Twilight Zone and one of the most insightful commentators on human nature, once observed, “We’re developing a new citizenry. One that will be very selective about cereals and automobiles, but won’t be able to think.”

Indeed, not only are we developing a new citizenry incapable of thinking for themselves, we’re also instilling in them a complete and utter reliance on the government and its corporate partners to do everything for them—tell them what to eat, what to wear, how to think, what to believe, how long to sleep, who to vote for, whom to associate with, and on and on.

In this way, we have created a welfare state, a nanny state, a police state, a surveillance state, an electronic concentration camp—call it what you will, the meaning is the same: in our quest for less personal responsibility, a greater sense of security, and no burdensome obligations to each other or to future generations, we have created a society in which we have no true freedom.

Pandora’s Box has been opened and there’s no way to close it. As Rod Serling prophesied in a Commencement Address at the University of Southern California in March 17, 1970:

“It’s simply a national acknowledgement that in any kind of priority, the needs of human beings must come first. Poverty is here and now. Hunger is here and now. Racial tension is here and now. Pollution is here and now. These are the things that scream for a response. And if we don’t listen to that scream - and if we don’t respond to it - we may well wind up sitting amidst our own rubble, looking for the truck that hit us - or the bomb that pulverized us. Get the license number of whatever it was that destroyed the dream. And I think we will find that the vehicle was registered in our own name.”

You can add the following to that list of needs requiring an urgent response: Police abuse is here and now. Surveillance is here and now. Imperial government is here and now. Yet while the vehicle bearing down upon us is indeed registered in our own name, we’ve allowed Big Brother to get behind the wheel, and there’s no way to put the brakes on this runaway car.

IACHR Presents Report on the Use of Pretrial Detention in the Americas

January 17, 2014 


Washington, D.C. - Since its establishment, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) has devoted special attention to the situation of persons deprived of liberty in the Americas. In this context, for more than a decade, the IACHR has considered the excessive use of pretrial detention as one of the most serious and widespread challenges faced by the vast majority of the States in the Americas. In certain countries such as Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and Panama the percentage of persons deprived of liberty and awaiting trial are truly alarming. In other countries, even though the official data shows that the number of persons in pretrial detention is less than those of convicted prisoners, the Commission has found other kinds of deficiencies that indicate this measure is not exceptional, as it should be in a democratic society.

The foregoing occurs despite of the existence of binding obligations of international treaty law, which are very clear in recognizing the presumption of innocence and the exceptional nature of pretrial detention; the broad recognition of these rights in many of the constitutions of the region, and the political pledge taken at the highest level by the OAS Member States in various opportunities.

As a response to this reality and the complexity of the problem, the Inter-American Commission is issuing its Report on the Use of Pretrial Detention in the Americas. This reports states that the excessive use of pretrial detention, runs counter to the very essence of democratic rule of law, which prohibits its use as a sort of anticipated punishment or swift justice without trial. Therefore, extreme precautions must be put in place for any instance in which this measure is applied, in order to respect due process rights.

The IACHR recognizes the duties of States to maintain public order and protect all persons under their jurisdiction from crime and violence. However, the means and methods used to carry out these obligations must be in accordance with international human rights recognized by States and with the principles that guide a democratic society.

Moreover, in the vast majority of the OAS Member States persons on pretrial detention are exposed to the same or worse conditions than convicted persons, are usually subjected to immense stress as a result of lost income and forced separation from their families and communities, and are exposed to a climate of violence and corruption as well as the unsanitary and inhume conditions prevailing in the vast majority of prisons in the region.

The excessive use of preventive detention is a complex problem caused by a variety of factors, such as the design of the law, structural deficiencies in administration of justice systems, interferences with judicial independence, and deeply rooted tendencies in judicial culture and practice, among others. At the same time, the excessive recourse to pretrial detention exacerbates other existing problems in the region, such as high rates of prison overcrowding. As is addressed in the aforementioned report, the non-exceptional use of pretrial detention not only causes serious problems of prison management, but also results in being considerably expensive and burdensome for States; all the while it is not an effective measure in reducing the levels of violence and crime.

In this Report on the Use of Pretrial Detention in the Americas the IACHR analyzes the general situation on the use of pretrial detention in the region, identifies common challenges, presents both official information provided by both the States and by other stakeholders, and underscores the main international standards on the matter. Likewise, it advances in the development of new standards not only on the application of pretrial detention but also on the use of alternative measures other than pretrial detention, the right to vote of persons in detention, the effect of the excessive use of pretrial detention on the penitentiary systems, the transparency in prison operations, and the management of information on the use of pretrial detention, among other topics.

Essentially, the Inter-American Commission stresses that pretrial detention must be the exception, not the rule; applied only with the aim of protecting the proper goal of the procedures, namely where the person presents a fleeing risk or to prevent the obstruction of the investigation; and, in accordance to the criteria of necessity, proportionality and for a reasonable period of time.

This report has been published thanks to the support of the Spanish Fund for the OAS.

A principal, autonomous body of the Organization of American States (OAS), the IACHR derives its mandate from the OAS Charter and the American Convention on Human Rights. The Inter-American Commission has a mandate to promote respect for human rights in the region and acts as a consultative body to the OAS in this area. The Commission is composed of seven independent members who are elected in an individual capacity by the OAS General Assembly and who do not represent their countries of origin or residence.
