Bradley Manning has been sentenced to 35 years in jail for letting the American public know of war crimes committed by the military (the criminals haven’t been charged yet, as far as I know). Edward Snowden had to flee the country for reporting extreme government surveillance on US citizens, and Julian Assange had to seek refuge in Ecuador’s embassy persecuted for his work on Wikileaks. What does that tells you? We don’t really have a justice system; we have a government controlled by sociopaths and criminals who are above the law; Manning’s trial was a travesty of justice. If you have any doubts regarding the fact that we have a sick socio-economic system just click here: David Chandler 2010 “9/11 Analysis” And if you think you can afford to turn a blind eye on all this, I wish you luck. “May the odds be ever in your favor”
By the way, are you still doing business with any of the big banks?

Poster by supporters of Julian Assange in London
The fact that Bradley Manning is on trial (and Julian Assange had to take refuge in the Ecuadorean Embassy) for exposing the truth (A Collateral Murder) is in itself proof of the corruption in our governments. Where is our freedom of speech? But now that Mr. Assange has been granted asylum by Ecuador (quite a courageous move), to hinder his safe passage to that country will really show how low they have descended, and how little they care for justice. To break international law will be a disastrous move on their part, which will reveal who they really are and who they really work for, and our cause will be strengthened. Either way, the revolution of consciousness is on its way.

I know, many people are in denial; they don’t want to hear it. It is easier to turn a blind eye, look the other way, deny it . . . But it is happening, and for obvious reasons: Those who think they can entrust their children’s future to the entity who is in power right now are in delusion. Check this: A Collateral Murder (And for exposing the truth, private Manning is awaiting trial and Julian Assange (WikiLeaks) extradition.)
But in spite of everything, the occupation is growing. In spite of the mainstream media hiding it, the Occupy Movement is thriving . . . Look! It is global!
Puerta del Sol, Spain
Daley Plaza, Chicago
14 Arrested at Cruz Home, Vowing Needless Foreclosure “Stops Here”
“We will reoccupy the Cruz home AGAIN tomorrow at 2pm on the one month anniversary of our 24/7 eviction blockade at the Cruz family home. Freddie Mac, PNC Bank, and Mayor Rybak have a choice to make: waste more city resources arresting peaceful protesters, or work to keep the Cruz family in their home. WE SHALL NOT BE MOVED.”
Wake up! for whatever we sow, we shall also reap. Let’s clean house!

So how many of you know that Amy Goodman moderated a conversation with WikiLeaks Editor-In-Chief Julian Assange and Slovenian Philosopher Slavoj Žižek in front of about 800,000 people in London, England?
The Audacity of Hope
Or that there is a boat named The Audacity of Hope, full of American activists, who are trying to deliver goods to the oppressed people of Gaza.
The mainstream media belongs to the corporate oligarchy; they mean to anesthetize you. For the real news go to:

I found this video about WikiLeaks on TED.com.
Considering the power that the corporate state wields over our government and the media at the moment (we are not a democracy anymore), WikiLeads deserves our support. Julian Assange is doing his job; most of our media is controlled by private interests. Check it out:

March for human rights (12/11/2010) ended successfully at Hoover High in City Heights, SD CA.
This poster got me to thinking that not only in Viet Nam we need freedom of speech. Julian Assange is still in jail. And Ms. Hillary Rhodam Clinton who a few months back was criticizing China for not allowing freedom of the press is now condemning Assange for exposing criminal actions for which no one has been charged. Is there freedom of the press in America? Democracy? Where are we heading? New World Order
One of these young ladies will be Miss Vietnam.
Viet Tan: To overcome dictatorship and establish democracy in Vietnam.
“Viet Tan engages in actions that empower the Vietnamese people. Specifically, we seek to roll back existing restrictions against two basic human rights: freedom of expression and freedom of association and assembly. These freedoms enable a civil society.”
Trinh Le, the event organizer, at my table.
Beautiful lady perusing my book, A vagabond in Mexico. It throws some light in the immigration problem.
Support Ron Paul!
