Posted on Dec 19, 2011

Who made your week by speaking truth to power, blowing the whistle or standing up to injustice?

Truthdigger of the Week is a feature in which we recognize a person or group that made a difference.

See past winners here. Nominate this week’s winner here.

Last week, we recognized the NDAA dissenters in Congress for doing their part to protect our civil liberties, even in the face of formidable political pressure. These 149 senators and representatives pushed back against an alarming, and ultimately successful, assault on Americans’ most sacred rights, even when the president failed to do his part.

I nominate the staff at TruthDig for doing a good job of burying the truth.

Perhaps TD can run a story about what it means to be Sovereign and not a subject, as the Icelanders have declared and which the media has completely blocked out.

Here is the best news and reality check you all have needed to hear / read for quite some time!

Charge Congress with Seditious Conspiracy!

Regardless of whether Bushbama has signed the NDAA, charge Congress with Seditious Conspiracy for passing it:

1. Sections 1031 and 1032 were renumbered to 1021 and 1022 in the final wording of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (the “NDAA”).  Here is the final wording (PDF page 81 of 371):

2. Don’t believe the Kleptocracy’s “everything’s fine” propaganda.  Instead, PLEASE read constitutional lawyer Glen Greenwald’s explanation of that final wording here:

3. Use NaSI SARs to charge Carl Levin, Howard “Buck” McKeon and your U.S. Representative and Senators who voted for NDAA (S.1867/H.R.1540) with “Seditious Conspiracy” under U.S. Code Title 18 Part I Chapter 115 Section 2384. Details here:
