U.S. Gov Is Using The NDAA To Indefinitely Detain Those Who Commit A "Belligerent Act"

Exclusive: Secret interrogation facility reveals aspects of war on terror in US
‘They disappeared us’: protester details 17-hour shackling without basic rights
Accounts describe police brutality, missing 15-year-old and one man’s death
Latest: Follow the Guardian’s investigation into Chicago’s Homan Square

The Chicago police department operates an off-the-books interrogation compound, rendering Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside what lawyers say is the domestic equivalent of a CIA black site.
The facility, a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s west side known as Homan Square, has long been the scene of secretive work by special police units. Interviews with local attorneys and one protester who spent the better part of a day shackled in Homan Square describe operations that deny access to basic constitutional rights.
Alleged police practices at Homan Square, according to those familiar with the facility who spoke out to the Guardian after its investigation into Chicago police abuse, include:

Keeping arrestees out of official booking databases.
Beating by police, resulting in head wounds.
Shackling for prolonged periods.
Denying attorneys access to the “secure” facility.
Holding people without legal counsel for between 12 and 24 hours, including people as young as 15.
At least one man was found unresponsive in a Homan Square “interview room” and later pronounced dead.

Brian Jacob Church, a protester known as one of the “Nato Three”, was held and questioned at Homan Square in 2012 following a police raid. Officers restrained Church for the better part of a day, denying him access to an attorney, before sending him to a nearby police station to be booked and charged.

The FCC is refusing to release the 332 page document to the public. They will regulate ISP's as "public service utilities," which will give the FCC power to regulate internet content. Well, the Patriot Act and the Affordable Care Act both sounded good at first....

As for the internet as it is right now, WHAT REALLY NEEDS TO BE CHANGED??

No doubt these regulations are an attempt to control the flow of information and free speech. These new regulations will place the internet under the same Title II licensing that require broadcasting to be licensed by the FCC! It's amazing to me that anyone -- especially PROGRAM SURVIVORS, who really ought to know better -- would think for a minute that this is good in any way, shape, or form! Please step up now and speak your mind, the silence is deafening!

I think most of the readers here would agree that the "Net Neutrality" Act will do nothing to improve the quality of communication on the internet.

Where is this program?

Haven't read the whole thing, but this article looked better at first glance:

Thanks for the reply. Good questions here.

In re your question about herbal medicine, sometimes these things happen by degrees. They wait for the right moment to try to get this or that bill passed. Yes, it is known that they have been trying for years; I remember people mentioning the FDA's restrictive shenanigans 20 years ago when i worked at a natural food store. It is interesting to note here that the World Health Organization recently blocked shipments of colloidal silver to the African countries afflicted with ebola. (I don't know if the article, or any of its embedded links, mentions this.)

I think they are waiting until after the elections to start pushing the fear factor.
