Welcome

This website is a plea to federal civil servants to save our republic, our constitution and our decency. Yes, we know the public is often unappreciative of your dedication and hard work. You've been called "faceless bureaucrats" and worse. We may not deserve your help and the risk to your careers and lives such help implies. Nevertheless, we're out here legally communicating with you. And you know very well if there is martial law, we will be singled out for retribution.

We don't assert we know martial law will occur. Those who would declare it would need an excuse. Nevertheless, evidence suggests a reasonable person should be very concerned about the preparations for a permanent police state. You can come forward anonymously, like "deep throat" or publicly like Dan Ellsberg. Do not expect to necessarily be as fortunate as Ellsberg.

Look within your heart, and if you decide patriotism means enough, come take your place in history.

 
"We need to fan the spark of conviction, which may again inspire the world... But first we must learn to cast out fear."  ~  Eleanor Roosevelt  
  Tips For Whistleblowers  
 

A Concise Set of Advice for Potential Whistleblowers

1. Don’t talk to anyone at work about it. Especially your boss.

2. Consider providing information anonymously. It’s called “over the transom”. Be sure no saliva or fingerprints are on what you send. Use a photocopy machine from a community you rarely frequent. Pay with cash. If you send an official document, the investigator can find the part of the government which issued the document and confirm it’s existence.

3. If you are willing to contact a member of the press, make sure they are real investigative journalists, rather than personal friends of those in power.

4. Wikileaks is worth considering.

5. You are allowed to contact your congressmember. We advise approaching the investigative staff for both house and senate committees such as:
• Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs
Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (Chairman Levin)
199 Senate Russell Building, Washington, DC 20510
• U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Terrorism,
Technology and Homeland Security(Chairwoman Feinstein)
224 Dirksen Senate Office Building Washington, DC 20510
Majority Office 202-224-4933
• United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform(Chairman Waxman)
Mailing Address:2157 RHOB Washington, DC 20515-6143
Telephone:(202) 225-5051
• United States House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security (Chairman Scott)
Mailing Address:B370 RHOB Washington, DC 20515-6223
Telephone:(202) 225-5727
• Committee on Homeland Security (Chairman Thompson)
Mailing Address:H2-176 FHOB Washington, DC 20515-6480
Telephone:(202) 226-2616

Also, Charles Grassley (R-IA) received a lifetime achievement award on May 17,2007 from the National Whistleblower Center. His chief of staff should point you to the correct committee staffer.
135 HART SENATE OFFICE BUILDING
WASHINGTON DC 20510
(202) 224-3744

Call before you send anything because of the following advice from EFF (Electronic Freedom Foundation):

Why to Not Send Postal Letters Anymore
Because of the post-9/11 security issues, it can take up to THREE MONTHS for postal mail and package delivery services to get through to legislators and their staffs. All incoming mail and parcels are subjected to thorough analysis for bombs, poisons and biological agents like anthrax. This means that sending physical letters is, in 2002 and for the forseeable future, practically useless for activism purposes.

Olbermann: On waterboarding and torture


Olbermann: Bush may not observe the rules, but the country abides by them

SPECIAL COMMENT
By Keith Olbermann
Anchor, \'Countdown\'
updated 6:42 p.m. PT, Mon., Nov. 5, 2007

It is a fact startling in its cynical simplicity and it requires cynical and simple words to be properly expressed: The presidency of George W. Bush has now devolved into a criminal conspiracy to cover the ass of George W. Bush.

All the petulancy, all the childish threats, all the blank-stare stupidity; all the invocations of World War III, all the sophistic questions about which terrorist attacks we wanted him not to stop, all the phony secrets; all the claims of executive privilege, all the stumbling tap-dancing of his nominees, all the verbal flatulence of his apologists...

All of it is now, after one revelation last week, transparently clear for what it is: the pathetic and desperate manipulation of the government, the refocusing of our entire nation, toward keeping this mock president and this unstable vice president and this departed wildly self-overrating attorney general, and the others, from potential prosecution for having approved or ordered the illegal torture of prisoners being held in the name of this country.

\"Waterboarding is torture,\" Daniel Levin was to write. Daniel Levin was no theorist and no protester. He was no troublemaking politician. He was no table-pounding commentator. Daniel Levin was an astonishingly patriotic American and a brave man.

Pre-SPP Summit Conference Reveals True Elitist Mindset

By: Patrick Wood, The August Review

The August 21, 2007 Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) summit in Montebello, Quebec with U.S. President Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Harper and Mexican President Calderon was held behind closed doors. Nothing of substance has been reported by the press, even though several major media outlets attended the event. Printer friendly

To understand what might have happened, we can turn to an August 13 policy conference that was held in Washington, DC. Titled "The Montebello Summit and the Future of North America," the conference presented three panels of global thinkers, including Dr. Robert A. Pastor, to prognosticate on the past, present and future of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) and North America.

America\'s Police Brutality Now Pandemic

By Paul Craig Roberts
9-28-7

Bush\'s \"war on terror\" quickly became Bush\'s war on Iraqi civilians. So far over one million Iraqi civilians have lost their lives because of Bush\'s invasion, and four million have been displaced. Iraq\'s infrastructure is in ruins. Disease is rampant. Normal life has disappeared.

Self-righteous Americans justify these monstrous crimes as necessary to ensure their own safety from terrorist attack. Yet, Americans are in far greater danger from their own police forces than they are from foreign terrorists. Ironically, Bush\'s \"war on terror\" has made Americans less safe at home by diminishing US civil liberties and turning an epidemic of US police brutality into a pandemic.

Telling the Truth

Telling the Truth
By David Swanson

Friday September 21, 2007, 14:50
http://afterdowningstreet.org/node/27031

Sam Provance exposed the torture in Abu Ghraib and as thanks had his career ruined, was threatened with prison, has had his wife leave him, and is now barely scraping by. He said Thursday evening that on a personal level his choice to speak out was not worth it. "But," he said, "this is not about me." And everyone in the auditorium where he was speaking knew exactly what he meant, because we had just heard Dan Ellsberg, Ann Wright, Larry Johnson, Coleen Rowley, Bob Parry, Akbar Ahmed, Peter Kuznick, Max Friedman, and Ray McGovern lay out the gravity of the situation this nation and the world are now in.

'A Coup Has Occurred'

By Daniel Ellsberg

Text of a speech delivered September 20, 2007 at American University

I think nothing has higher priority than averting an attack on Iran, which I think will be accompanied by a further change in our way of governing here that in effect will convert us into what I would call a police state.

If there’s another 9/11 under this regime … it means that they switch on full extent all the apparatus of a police state that has been patiently constructed, largely secretly at first but eventually leaked out and known and accepted by the Democratic people in Congress, by the Republicans and so forth.

Will there be anything left for NSA to increase its surveillance of us? … They may be to the limit of their technical capability now, or they may not. But if they’re not now they will be after another 9/11.

And I would say after the Iranian retaliation to an American attack on Iran, you will then see an increased attack on Iran – an escalation – which will be also accompanied by a total suppression of dissent in this country, including detention camps.

Iraq Vet Dissed by His Rep...

Dear peace activists, and Dennis Moore\'s office

I just wanted to share a short story with you about an experience I had on Sept 14 in Lenexa, Kansas at the Viet Nam traveling wall. While there with a good friend of mine Dave Quinley I was not allowed to enter the event and was quickly ushered out by a character who was not even a war veteran because of my status with the Iraq Veterans Against the War. As I waited out front of the event on the corner here came my Representative Dennis Moore being drop off at the event so that he could speak at the event. I quickley approach Dennis Moore and began to state that I was an Iraq Veteran and before I could finish He shook my hand and I then stated to him that I was not being allowed to enter the event. Dennis Moore then got a better look at me and must have been able to read those big words on my t-shirt Iraq Veterans Against the War because he quickly turned away and began to leave as if I did not even exist to him. I then raised my voice so that he could here me as he left in a hurry and stated \"Dennis Moore I am an Iraq Veteran. Why have you not returned my phone calls. I need help with the VA administration. I am not getting the help I need.\" Dennis Moore just keep on going as if I was nothing. Like I was not good enough to talk to. Dennis Moore I just want you to know I am going to do everything I can in my power to take you out of power. I also want you to know that my boys will be raised learning the truth about war and people like yourself.

Have a nice day, I look forward to protesting you at another event.

Why failure is the new face of success

It may have been the military that invaded but, with Iraq completely dismantled, the reconstruction was to be the preserve of US corporations ... Thus was born \'disaster capitalism\', where oil companies profit from a broken country and private security firms grow rich on political chaos, says Naomi Klein in this final extract from her new book

BUSH RESTRICTING TRAVEL RIGHTS OF OVER 100,000 U.S. CITIZENS

By Sherwood Ross

The freedom to travel of more than 100,000 Americans placed on ?watch? and ?no fly? lists is being restricted by the Bush-Cheney regime.

Citizens who have done no more than criticize the president are being banned from airline flights, harassed at airports?, strip searched, roughed up and even imprisoned, feminist author and political activist Naomi Wolf reports in her new book, ?The End of America.?(Chelsea Green Publishing)

?Making it more difficult for people out of favor with the state to travel back and forth across borders is a classic part of the fascist playbook,? Wolf says. She noticed starting in 2002 that ?almost every time I sought to board a domestic airline flight, I was called aside by the Transportation Security Administration(TSA) and given a more thorough search.?

Impeach Now: Or Face the End of Constitutional Democracy

Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration. He was Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal editorial page and Contributing Editor of National Review. He is coauthor of The Tyranny of Good Intentions. He can be reached at: PaulCraigRoberts@yahoo.com

By PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS

Unless Congress immediately impeaches Bush and Cheney, a year from now the US could be a dictatorial police state at war with Iran.

Bush has put in place all the necessary measures for dictatorship in the form of "executive orders" that are triggered whenever Bush declares a national emergency. Recent statements by Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff, former Republican senator Rick Santorum and others suggest that Americans might expect a series of staged, or false flag, "terrorist" events in the near future.
