ACLU Says Critical Changes to Patriot Act Still Needed


Was Cheney Hiding His Honey-Bunny?

I just hate myself for being a rumor-monger. But I can't help myself either. Sirius radio's Alex Bennett just broke a rumor that the delay in reporting the news that Cheney shot an old man in the heart was due to an effort to hide or spin Cheney's female companion. Could this be Cheney's Lewinsky? 

Pamela Willeford (see photo), ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein, was part of the hunting excursion with Cheney and Whittington. And according to Willeford's account, Cheney and the ambassador were side-by-side when the shooting of Whittington took place. Rumor also has it that there was drinking involved. 

The vice president's Secret Service detail had to decide what to do with Willeford by way of perhaps covering up her relationship with Cheney, and thus the delay in reporting the news. 

The rumor goes that Lynn Cheney isn't happy with Cheney's close relationship with Willeford.

Shades of 9/11 Alllll Over Again 

Michael Chertoff spent umpteen hours preparing a 520 page report to tell Americans that the Katrina Massacre was "A Failure of Initiative."

A "Failure of Initiative" occurs when a high school's star quarterback goes out and gets wasted the night before the big Homecoming Football Game. I refuse to believe that any American with even half an ounce of common sense believes that a mere "Failure of Initiative" is what went down with Katrina.

Our government fully KNEW that a big storm was coming. They fully KNEW that the levees were going to fail (or, as many claim, would be purposely "helped" to fail). There was no "failure" whatsoever to prepare for such an event. Our federal disaster agencies and our military both knew PRECISELY how to help save these people from imminent death, and they PURPOSELY made the conscious and deliberate choice of inactivity in "NOT recognizing Katrina's likely consequences!"

Calif State Legislature Passes Anti-Patriot Act Resolution, 20060216
The State Senate voted 23-10 this morning, February 16,  to pass the  Resolution calling for Congress to  repeal of the unconstitutional provisions of the USA Patriot Act.
Since the resoultion was passed by the State Assembly, this means that the resolution has passed the State Legislature and a letter will be sent to Congress requesting repeal of the unconstitutional sections and that it directs the state agencies to not use any resources to enforce any unconstitutional sections of the Patriot Act.
California has now joined 6 other states in passing similar resolutions.

2/16: Protest Golden Gate Bridge Suicide Barrier
 The Golden Gate Board of Directors will vote on wasting $2 million that could otherwise be spent on increasing public teacher salaries or acquiring new pieces for the Museum of Modern Art or building an additional unit of affordable housing or any number of good public projects. Instead they want to py special-interest "consultants" to determine the best design for building a prison on or around the Golden Gate Bridge, which will ultimately cost in excess of $60 million. To pay for this project, they are proposing raising the fees of crossing the bridge at their next meeting scheduled for February 16. Below is one proposal for a suicide barrier design:

Bay Area Relocalize: Preparing for the End of Cheap Oil

In response to the growing concerns around climate change and the end 
of cheap oil, Post Carbon Institute has launched an exciting new 
project called Bay Area Relocalize. The project is assessing our 
region's use of resources and developing a model for local 
communities to bring the production of our food, energy and essential 
goods closer to home. We are connecting with neighborhoods, 
businesses, and community groups to mobilize around reducing our 
consumption of resources from outside the region and replacing them 
with local resources.  Examples include creating community gardens, 
installing solar panels on homes and businesses, capturing rainwater, 
improving public transit, and building affordable homes nearer to 
where we work. This 2-hour event hosted at the Ecology Center will 
feature a panel of presenters from the project and Q&A. Proceeds will 
benefit the Bay Area Relocalize project.

Time: 7pm - 9pm
Location: Ecology Center, 2530 San Pablo Ave, near Dwight Way, Berkeley.
Cost: Requested donation of $5-20 (sliding scale). No one turned away 
for lack of funds.. Info: 510-548-2220 x233.

Film - Last Journey for the Leatherback?
San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park Visitor Center
corner of Hyde and Jefferson Streets, near Fisherman's Wharf
San Francisco

 New Documentary Film Sounds Alarm About the Threat of Extinction to Sea Turtles. Produced by the Emmy award-winning documentary filmmaker Stan Minasian (dir. The Last Days of the Dolphins? & The Free Willy Story: Keiko's Journey Home). Representatives of Sea Turtle Restoration Project will hold a discussion session following the film. Donations will be accepted.

 Scientists predict that the giant Pacific leatherback sea turtle, which has survived unchanged for over 100 million years, could vanish in the next 5 to 30 years, if current threats from wasteful industrial longline fishing are not curtailed. The female nesting population of leatherback sea turtles in the Pacific Ocean has collapsed by 95 per cent in the past 20 years. The leatherback is the largest sea turtle, measuring nine feet from head to tail with the largest ever recorded tipping the scales at 2,000 lbs. 

 Last Journey for the Leatherback? is a hard hitting documentary that combines science, activism and rare footage of endangered sea turtles, to tell the gripping story of sea turtles, the new icon of the ocean environmental movement. Sea turtles are quickly reaching the status of dolphins and whales and conservationists are becoming increasingly alarmed and active in their fight to save these gentle giants, and to stop the wide-spread impacts on the world’s ocean ecosystems.

Created in 1951, the American Academy of Asian Studies was one of the  first institutions to introduce the philosophies of Vedanta, Taoism, Zen,  Sufism, and other Eastern spiritual traditions to the Bay Area. Among the  Academy’s key scholars was Dr. Haridas Chaudhuri of Bengal, who was a student of the Indian  philosopher Sri Aurobindo. In 1968, Dr. Chaudhuri and his wife, Bina,  founded what is now known as California Institute of Integral Studies.

In the early 1950s, painter Gordon Onslow  Ford was among Dr. Chaudhuri’s first students at the American Academy of Asian Studies. He also studied  with Alan Watts and Roshi Hodo Tobase. He and many other artists were  greatly influenced by the Asian philosophies presented at the Academy.

After Onslow Ford’s death in  2003, the Lucid Art Foundation, a nonprofit California arts organization, was the  recipient of Onslow Ford’s extensive art collection. This exhibit  features the work from the 1950s of a selected group of artists from that  collection, many of whom were inspired by Eastern philosophies. The  exhibition also addresses the work of the Dynaton group, comprised of  artists Onslow Ford, Lee Mullican, and Wolfgang Paalen, who simultaneously launched a new art movement.

# ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME EVENT: Buddha's bodily remains iin SF this weekend!
Where: Tse Chen Ling Tibetan Buddhist Center, 399 Webster (@ Oak), San 
When: Fri 17 thru Sun 19 Feb, 10am - 5pm.
Admission Free.

Extraordinary, but true. All the world Buddhist traditions have united to 
promote this tour of the remains of ancient Buddhas, including Shakimuni 
Buddha and Milarepa. The world tour began in 2001 and will be in San 
Francisco on Friday thru Sunday at Tse Chen Ling Buddhist Center. The 
purpose is to raise awareness about a gigantic 500ft Buddha Statue being 
built as a new symbol of World Peace in one of India's holiest spots. Check 
out the Maitreya project online (

I have already seen the relics and have to say I was skeptical before I 
went. However the energy from the shrine is one of the most powerful 
experiences I have ever had... The organizers put pillows around the space, 
because so many people are moved to sit and pray for world peace.

I hope you have the good karma to visit the shrine this weekend... you don't 
need to be Buddhist to go...
peace. Kate

# Training Young Trees for Structure and Form - Palo Alto
Local arborist Kevin Raftery will be leading this tree pruning workshop on February 18 from 9 am - 12 pm, as part of Canopy's Community Tree Steward Workshop Series. There are still a few spots available for this workshop. It is free, thanks to a grant from California ReLeaf and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Prevention, but you must pre-register. Contact Canopy or check our website  for more information.

# Saturday, Feb. 18, 10 AM to 12:30 AM 
Health Care for All  "Citizen" congressional hearing
 Board of Supervisors' Chambers at Marin Civic Center. Lynn Woolsey will preside, Sen. Sheila Kuehl has been invited, and we hope to have numerous other legislators present. The object is to tell them what's wrong with our health-care system and to demand a system that works. There will be many people testifying. These hearings are being held around the country with the support of Rep. John Conyers; it's all part of building an irresistible groundswell for a single-payer system.
 This is all part of building the mass movement that we will require before we can hope that a single-payer system will pass. There are too many monied interests opposed to expect that mere good will and good sense could overthrow the disastrous system we have today. Like civil rights, like the anti-tobacco movement, we must first have a sea change in public thinking. 
 Information about hearings and planned hearings nationwide is available at, our local site

 To participate, bring an organic living vegan dish to share, for approximately 10-15 people. If you can, label the ingredients.* 

 Let me know if you have questions or need a recipe suggestion ( Feel free to invite others too. Just add their email to the list or pass along the information. 

 Don't know what qualifies as raw or living vegan food?

 FAQ from living foods website: 

 **What do raw/living foodists eat?
 Raw and Living Foodist eat all fruits, vegetables, sprouts, nuts, seeds, grains, sea vegetables, and other organic/natural foods that have not been processed. In some instances, there are special ways to prepare the foods (example: most raw and living foodists soak/sprout nuts, seeds and grains before consuming them). For some delicious recipes, see our recipe section!

 ***Other websites:

PLEASE, no meat or other flesh products or derivatives, dairy, eggs, sugar, or processed food over 105F). If possible, avoid soy products, corn, wheat, honey, and peanuts or clearly mark their presence in your recipe, to help those who are sensitive to these common allergens or those who wish to avoid exposure to foods that may be genetically engineered (or GMO-contaminated). 

 {If you'd like to be off this list, please just use the "remove me from this list" feature or button. You should see it if you look around.

Film Series on 9/11: An Inside Job
The Truth and Lies of 9/11

Presented by Gypsy Gypsy

This is the famous documentary by Mike Ruppert who once was a  
narcotics investigator in the L.A. Police Department until he  
realized that the CIA was dealing drugs and arms.  Authorities  
offered him a nice sallary to keep his mouth shut, but they obviously  
underestimated him; Mike became a whistle blower instead.  They tried  
to threaten him, they even shot him, but he survived and never backed  
down.  He spent many years touring the country and exposing the CIA's  
drug dealings and other dirty secrets.  Today Mike is justly  
considered the pioneer of the 9/11 truth movement.  In this  
documentary, Mike explains the connection between the CIA and Wall  
Street -- Wall Street being a front, a "laundromat," for the CIA.  He  
points out a connection between the put options on both American and  
United Airlines and the CIA as well as many other incriminating  
facts.  He is the author of Crossing the Rubicon,  the second best- 
selling book after The Kean Commission Report on 911.    http://

Superfoods with Doctor-Chef Michael Greger, M.D. 1 Hour 45 Minutes. Many of
our members have seen Dr. Greger in person. This DVD captures his dynamic
and engaging style with lots of information on whole plant superfoods that
may block and even reverse the four steps of tumor formation and then shows
him preparing quick, tasty, nutritious recipes! Dr. Greger believes 70% of
all cancer deaths are preventable through diet alone. He will explain what
free radicals and antioxidants really are and how specific foods work to
protect your body from the ravages of aging, cancer and other chronic
degenerative diseases. Dr. Greger shows how a phyto-nutrient rich
plant-based diet may be our best protection against the cancer epidemic.
Learn the why’s and the how’s of optimum healthy eating. For those who
already have heard Dr. Greger speak, this will be a great opportunity to
review his information. It would also be a great opportunity to bring a
friend or family member to hear and see “the most articulate and
entertaining medical speaker on plant-based nutrition today” – Michael
Klaper, M.D. Director, Institute of Nutrition Education and Research.

Link TV Makes Pro-Animal Film Available to Viewers in 26 Million American Homes

The Witness Highlights the Dramatic and Inspiring Personal Transformation of Tough Brooklyn Construction Contractor Whose Heart is Opened by the Love of a Kitten

Airs Saturday, Feb. 25 at 7 PM PST /10 PM EST
(DIRECTV Ch. 375/DISH Network Ch. 9410)

Send a personalized e-vite to friends and family:

San Francisco, CA—Jan. 17, 2006—Link TV today announced the upcoming broadcast of the award-winning documentary The Witness, produced by James LaVeck and directed by Jenny Stein of Tribe of Heart. The Witness,  which airs Saturday, Feb. 25 at 7 PM PST, 10 PM EST, during Link TV’s pledge drive, tells the inspiring story of tough construction contractor turned animal rescuer Eddie Lama. A film festival favorite, The Witness has won seven Best Documentary awards and one Best of Festival award. Los Angeles Times columnist Howard Rosenberg wrote, “The Witness is one man’s truth that cries out for mass exposure… may be the most important and persuasive film about animals ever made.”

Actor William Baldwin, who calls The Witness "one of the most moving documentaries I've ever seen,” urges viewers to “watch this important, life-changing film.” Baldwin and his wife, singer-songwriter Chynna Phillips of the musical group Wilson-Phillips, were so impressed with The Witness that they hosted screenings at their home for their friends and colleagues.

“Eddie Lama, who learned about violence through his own rites of passage on the mean streets of Brooklyn, now speaks with eloquence, passion and humility about the pressing need to protect the vulnerable,” said Baldwin. “That a man with his life experience could be so completely transformed by spending time with a kitten is a testimony both to the magic of the human-animal relationship and the magic of the human spirit."

“So many people who have seen The Witness at film festivals and independent theatres have asked us, ‘why isn’t this playing on national TV?’” said the film’s producer James LaVeck. “We always tell them there are a lot of great films they’re not getting to see that tell the truth about what goes on behind closed doors in this country. That’s why now, this opportunity to reach a mass audience in partnership with a broadcaster with the integrity and independence of Link TV, means so much.”

“We bring documentary films to the American viewer that extend far beyond the narrow scope of the popular media,” said Link TV Producer Toni Whiteman. “The Witness is one of those films, made with the courage and commitment to speak on behalf of those who have no voice. The strength of the force to banish this provocative film is the very reason we chose to broadcast it.”

ABOUT TRIBE OF HEART: Producer James LaVeck and Director Jenny Stein founded their Ithaca, New York-based non-profit production company, Tribe of Heart, to fill an unmet need for films that explore the human potential to respond to injustice with creativity and non-violence.

ABOUT LINK TV: Link TV is a non-commercial, independent television network available in more than 26 million U.S. homes on DIRECTV channel 375 and DISH Network channel 9410. The 24-hour programming is a mix of documentaries, international news, foreign films and the best of World Music. Link TV is operated by Link Media, Inc., a California non-profit organization, with production studios in San Francisco, New York and Washington.

# Feb 25-26:  Inspiring Masculine Presence -- Unleashing Feminine Fire  
Mar 25-26:Giving Good "NO"

# Masculine Presence- Feminine Fire Workshop 
 Saturday, February 25, 2006  - Sunday, February 26,  
 Hello to all! 

I have never distributed anything on my tribe network before, but this is the kind of thing that might be the little kick that one of you is needing. There’s a personal development workshop coming up the weekend of February 25th and 26th at WholeBody Wisdom in Oakland. 

I’ve been working privately with the instructor and can attest to the soundness of what he communicates. He has the ability to connect with students at whatever level they’re able to work from and draw out of them a grounded strength that they didn’t even know was being hidden. His teachings focus on the alignment of our different bodies (heart, mind, soul, and sexuality), releasing energy caught up in shame and fear into a unified voice of love. This is his “Inspiring Masculine Presence- Unleashing Feminine Fire” workshop- the one that I hear referenced most by his previous clients. 

I’m going to be doing this workshop with my partner. It’s not specifically a couple’s thing, but we decided to take this step in our growth together. 
It’s also not for everyone. But for those it is for, it will be invaluable. 

I would recommend at least checking out what Scott does with his practice. When we’ve plateaued in our development it can be invigorating just to see that this kind of empowerment work is happening nearby.

# Synergy Social: Quantum Relationships   $18/25
When: Monday, February 27th 7:30pm to  10:30pm
Where: OneTaste @  1070 Folsom in San Francisco


Would you like to experience less conflict in your life?  Would you like to
experience more synergy in your life?  We will explore how in this event,
giving us all an opportunity  to engage in creating the kind of world in
which we all want to belong.

The simple truth is that in relationships,  one and one never equal two.
They either equal more than two, and  synergy is experienced...or they equal
less than two...and conflict  is experienced. Therefore, all relating is
truly quantum relating.

What  is it that governs the patterns that either mesh well and create  more
of what we love and thrive on, or grind like ill-fitting  gears? What would
it be worth to you to have awareness and choice  around these dynamics? What
would it be worth to you to be able  to short-circuit conflict before it
escalates? How valuable would it be for you to be able to consciously create
synergy at work,  at play, and in romance? To have more access to
consciously creating  more beauty and joy in all of your relationships?

That is the conversation we will have as the center-piece  of this event.

# The Color of Palo Alto: Art Meets Canopy
How a Public Art Project is Helping to Preserve Our Urban Forest – One Photograph at a Time
Saturday, March 4, 9 -10:30 am Free
Presented by Canopy and the Palo Alto Art Center

Celebrate Arbor Month with a lively presentation by artist Samuel Yates on how The Color of Palo Alto incorporates technology, contemporary art, environmental protection, and public service into one award-winning public art project that helps maintain our urban forest.

The presentation will focus on how the City of Palo Alto will use the project to:
•	Respond more accurately and efficiently to daily tree inquiries from residents. 
•	Coordinate tree maintenance decisions between departments.
•	Assist the building permit application, smart planning, and tree verification process. 
•	Preserve city trees by reducing root system destruction.
•	Reduce pollution and natural resource use.
•	Promote the City’s environmental and renewable energy initiatives. 
•	Create the nation’s first photo-assisted 911 emergency response system.

As part of a public art project, artist Samuel Yates photographed each of the 17,860 properties in Palo Alto to find the average color of each property, street, and neighborhood. The final results, including "The Color of Palo Alto," will be unveiled later this year and used as paint, font, and product colors thereafter. The potential city benefits emerged in 2001 when the artist offered Palo Alto a free license to use his photographs and tie them into the citywide parcel data system.

San Francisco Magazine named it the "Best Art Project in the Bay Area;" Dwell Magazine gave it their "Nice Modernist" humanitarian award; and the San Jose Mercury News called it "The Great Palo Alto Art Experiment." Come see for yourself what it’s all about!

 Digital Be-In 14:  Planet Code   THE EARTH DAY BE-IN
April 22, 2006   SOMARTS  934 Brannan @ 8th St  SF

 Be-Integrity Symposium and Exhibition
 12 noon to 6pm
 Digital Be-In  
 Luminaries and Special Guests, Performances, Live Music
 7 pm – 11 pm
 Planet Code Dance Party
 11 pm – 4 am

Participating Organizations (partial list)
 --Earth Day Network
 --Natural World Museum
 --Environmental Non-Profit Network
 --San Francisco Alliance for Urban Sustainability
 --Women’s Global Green Action Network
 --California Institute of Integral Studies

This 14th edition of the Digital Be-In combines its lineage of invention and cultural evolution marking the dawn of the digital age with the emerging green economy and sustainable culture movement. Producer Michael Gosney (whose Verbum magazine began the Digital Be-In during the late 1980s) developed the Paradox conferences on sustainable communities at Arcosanti, Arizona in 1997, 1999 and 2001  and formed the Green Century Institute in San Francisco in 2002. Planetwork, founded in San Francisco by Jim Fournier and Elizabeth Thompson in 1998, fosters the creative application of digital tools for positive global change through a series of conferences and monthly forums in major cities. The Green Century Institute and Planetwork are working with several San Francisco Bay Area groups that were involved in the seminal World Environment Day week in San Francisco June 5–11, 2005  in the development of this combination daytime symposium, evening rally/celebration and late night dance party. As in the past, the Digital Be-In will reach beyond the physical event with a live netcast, information-intense website and new kinds of exposure and interaction via social networks and blogs. The theme “Planet Code” implies our writing (and re-writing where necessary) the “codes” that define our place within and interaction with the natural environment, and calls upon the high technology community we have encouraged and celebrated over the years to empower the sustainability movement with bold, forward-thinking initiatives. 

Digital Be-In 14 will offer a variety of opportunities for sponsors to reach opinion leaders, press and a receptive public interested in SOLUTIONS FOR A SUSTAINABLE CULTURE. All presentations and content associated with the EARTH DAY BE-IN will emphasize new projects and initiatives: actions! We encourage sponsors to use the Be-In as a launching platform for products and campaigns that are making a difference. Outreach via marketing messages, the Be-In website, associated organization websites, social networks and public relations will be designed to inform and connect the public with sustainable culture resources. 2006 is a vital year for shifting the tide of awareness and action toward sustainability and April 22, 2006 promises to be a pivotal date. Please contact Michael Gosney or Justin Weiner from GCI for details on sponsorship programs.

# FYI the US runs a school of assasins / torture at Ft. Benning, GA
Previously called School Of the Americas (SOA),
now called Western Hemispheric Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC).
Congress demanded SOA be closed down. So they simply renamed it.
SOA used to be in Panama, until Manuel Noriega said it had to go.
Noriega was an important drug smuggling ally for the CIA.
When he broke with the CIA because he was not happy about the US school of torture in Panama, his days were numbered. 
Two other notable men who the CIA made alliances with:
Sadam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden.
The CIA makes allies of people it can use to torture and murder it's enemies.
The CIA was arming, training and using Osama Bin Laden to fight the USSR in Afghanistan.
Before Sept 11, 2001, the CIA was negotiating an oil pipeline through Afghanistan to be built by Haliburton, paid for by Enron, to supply Unocal 76.  Those negotiations broke down.  That was plan A.
Plan B was flying our own airplanes into our own buildings and blaming them.
SEE: Operation Northwoods (1962) Plan B has been on the table for 43 years.
Cheney, Perle, Wolfowitz, et al are part of Project for a new American Century (PNAC) who wrote: (a year before 911)
Without a Pearl Harbor style invasion the American people will not accept 
the empirical mobilization necessary to seize middle eastern oil. 
CIA initiated Saddam Hussein by having him commit an assasination in Iraq to prove himself.
Once installed to power by CIA, Saddam did oversee the torture and execution of an entire generation Iraqis.
Every Iraqi student or activist who had political aspirations was killed by Saddam who was a CIA operative.

Neither will we ever be certain whether those plans for the National Mall surrounding the White House, the Washington Monument and the U.S. Capital proposed by the McMillan Commission in the same year that the Bohemian Owl worshipers legally acquired their grove in California, had anything to do with why there appears to be a Giant Owl surrounding the Capitol Building.

The Declaration of Independence of the Thirteen Colonies 
In CONGRESS, July 4, 1776 
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, 
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. 
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain [George III] is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. 
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. 
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. 
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. 
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. 
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. 
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. 
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. 
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers. 
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. 
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. 
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the consent of our legislatures. 
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power. 
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: 
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: 
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: 
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: 
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: 
For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury: 
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences: 
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies: 
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: 
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. 
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. 
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. 
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation. 
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. 
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. 
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. 
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends. 
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor. 
The signers of the Declaration represented the new states as follows: 
New Hampshire: 
Josiah Bartlett, William Whipple, Matthew Thornton

Stephen Hopkins, William Ellery

"You are a member of government. And one of that majority which has doomed my country to destruction. You've begun to burn our towns and murder our people. Look upon you hands. They are stained with the blood of your relations. You and I were long friends.You are now my enemy and I am yours.".........................Benjamin Franklin 7-5-1775 

Preventing / resisting  MARTIAL LAW: by building self-sufficient communities: 

Learn to resist, better yet, to be invisible.
But be visible now as we all must stand up to prosecute high crimes.
Learn the laws of sovereignty. This is the freedom gauranteed to all.

Know where you will get water in future.
Grow your own food. Eat your perishables. Save your non-perishables.
Have lots of grains and seeds in glass mason jars, so you can sprout and eat them while waiting for your crops.

Do not recycle large bottles. Especially keep glass and stainless steel.
Fill with spring water or tap water and store in safe places.
Start composting NOW. Build your soil.
Do not let "gardeners" remove your leaves. They become soil.
Flag down a tree trimming truck. Have them dump wood chips in your yard.

Get involved in your community. Create community.

Why build it the shackled rail cars and trucks and camps and order 
guillotines on this scale if you are NOT planning on using it?

"Excuse me sir, would you step this way?"

Here is a suggested possibility of a proper response to retain your 
rights to not be searched and seized by the USA corporation or local 
agent offering to "protect" you.

Option of a possible response based upon my and others' understanding 
and reading of court findings revolving around exactly at what point 
you give up your Constitutional non-search & seizure rights:

In the real world, asserting your rights politely usually only works if 
your rights are respected by a higher-up who knows the legal score, and 
you  answer no question ever.  Not in detention, not in jail, ever. At 
some point someone somewhere in the chain knows this truthful 
information - while the practical full loss of all rights in an 
executive  dictatorship for our own good is not in effect.

"How are you today, sir?" This is a trained ploy to elicit 'proper' 
response without the officer even knowing why. He is not told the whole 
truth and is simply told to start the investigation by as 
to "be friendly."

Any answer or giving up of documents at any point makes you 
"participating in an investigation" - unless you answer ONLY in the 
form of a QUESTION.

Example: smile, and politely ask "Who is asking and why?" 
This immediately determines the encounter status and 
whether the person is acting in their private or public capacity.

If you ANSWER, you have automatically given up all rights. Once given 
up, they cannot be restored. Because "Once you testify in part you must 
testify in whole."

If taken against your will, you can come back later and win.

Be friendly, be polite.

"I respectfully do not consent to this encounter. If I had and gave you 
such documents can they be used against me in a court of law? 
Would you please inform your supervisor what I just said? Am I free to go?" 
(Immediately determines your status.)

Theoretically, this applies not just to airports, but roadblocks, 
traffic stops, street encounters = they are all the same.
