Hillary Clinton to be Indicted on Federal Racketeering Charges

Hillary Clinton to be Indicted on Federal Racketeering Charges

The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is a United States Federal Law passed in 1970 that was designed to provide a tool for law enforcement agencies to fight organized crime.  RICO allows prosecution and punishment for alleged racketeering activity that has been executed as part of an ongoing criminal enterprise.  

Activity considered to be racketeering may include bribery, counterfeiting, money laundering, embezzlement, illegal gambling, kidnapping, murder, drug trafficking, slavery, and a host of other nefarious business practices.

James Comey and The FBI will present a recommendation to Loretta Lynch, Attorney General of the Department of Justice, that includes a cogent argument that the Clinton Foundation is an ongoing criminal enterprise engaged in money laundering and soliciting bribes in exchange for political, policy and legislative favors to individuals, corporations and even governments both foreign and domestic.

A Judge Just Ordered the US Government to Release Thousands of Detainee Abuse Photos

from: Vice News:

By Jason Leopold


The trickle of scandalous Abu Ghraib photos that surfaced in 2004 during the United States occupation of Iraq could soon become a flood after a federal judge on Friday ordered the government to release thousands of photographs of American soldiers abusing detainees at facilities in Iraq and Afghanistan.

US District Court Judge Alvin Hellerstein's three-page order said the government failed to meet a deadline to certify that each of the 2,100 photographs in question would incite violence and "endanger Americans" if publicly released. But he gave it 60 days to appeal his decision. The government can continue to withhold the photographs in the meanwhile.

A Justice Department spokesperson did not respond to requests for comment.

The decision on the American Civil Liberties Union's decade-long Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit is a major victory that arrives, fittingly, at the end of Sunshine Week, an annual initiative that promotes transparency and open government.

Israeli Reservists of Spy Unit Refuse to Be Tools of Occupation, Sparking Ire From Officials

From Common Dreams

by Andrea Germanos, staff writer


From the article:


"The 43 veteran reservists of intelligence Unit 8200 sent the letter last week to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the armed forces chief and head of intelligence, stating that they 'refuse to continue serving as tools in deepening the military control over the Occupied Territories.'"


It is important to understand while there are many in Israel who do not support the government's hard line stance towards the Palestinian people, Conscientious objectors  are often viewed as treasonous criminals, demonstrated by the condemnation of this letter by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon, and Israel Defense Forces Spokesperson Moti.



Landmark letter of refusal to serve denounces unchecked surveillance, 'intelligence [that] is an inseparable part of military control'

Israeli officials are lashing out following a letter of conscientious objection penned by a group of reservists in an elite spy unit stating that they refuse to be tools of Israel's military occupation.

The 43 veteran reservists of intelligence Unit 8200 sent the letter last week to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the armed forces chief and head of intelligence, stating that they "refuse to continue serving as tools in deepening the military control over the Occupied Territories."

"There is a perception that service in military intelligence is free of moral dilemmas and only contributes to the reduction of violence and harm to innocent people," Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reports the letter as saying. "But during military service we learned that intelligence is an inseparable part of military control in the territories."

Help Veterans by Taking Them Off the Pedestal

From the article;

I once talked to a World War II veteran about the experience of attending college after coming home, and asked if it was jarring to sit next to those who never served. I wondered if veterans huddled together under the umbrella of mutual understanding and thought less of civilians who never shouldered a rifle. His answer was surprising. They were proud of their time in uniform, he said, but for many, the war interrupted their lives, and education was a return to normalcy. Instead of a victory lap, they were more interested in getting back on track.

If everyone's a hero, then no one is a hero.

I've always felt all the "Support the Troops" hoopla is nothing more than a way to ease the guilt, for lack of a better word. Sure, send em some cookies, throw a yellow Chinese magnetic ribbon on your car, stick some flags in your car windows, say 'Thanks" whenever you find out someone is a vet (even though you really don't know what you're thanking them for, other than that elusive "service", but you know you're supposed to say it because ya know, they're vets) and you can feel good about your support for the troops.

"Support the troops" has become shorthand, in my not so humble opinion, for not questioning the status-quo when it comes to US military interventions world wide or the military-industrial complex. How about we "support the troops" by supporting the VA and jobs programs and treatment for returning vets? How about we "support the troops" by working to build an economy with, if need be, a new WPA type program to rebuild infrastructure and supply good jobs so young people don't feel the need to join the military as a way out? How about a living wage, for that matter? How about making education a priority again and available to everyone who wants to go so young people don't feel they have to join the military so they can go to school?

The author of this article, Alex Horton, was an infantryman in Iraq for 15 months. While he doesn't go as far as I do in my blurb here, he says what I've been feeling for a long time.

I have been reading Subversives: The FBI's War on Student Radicals, and Reagan's Rise to Power, by Seth Rosenfeld, an excellent book ,

Let's see what happens

General News

A few years ago Ruthie and I ran a small time website called Any Which Way. (that's a link to an internet archive of the early days of the site on the Way Back Machine.) Don't look for Any Which Way now, the domain was bought by a Latvian porn site guy. We let the site go because we were spending a great deal of time reading and verifing stuff to post, and we were spending a great deal of time angry about what was going on in the US and the world.

Over the last few years since we let the site expire we've considered reviving it. The amount of time that would take is somewhat prohibitive, so my solution is to begin to upload and post some of the stuff we had there to Yoyo's Bagel. We could also start posting here the types of things we once posted there.

So let's see what happens. I'm going to upload as much as I can. As far as how much we'll actually post... more will be revealed.

Laid Off

General News

Some people who have come by in the past may have noticed I've taken down the Facebook "Causes" for UCMH and Golden Hill Health care facility. There's really no purpose in keeping them. The chemical dependency unit at Ulster County Mental Health closed on December 31 and Golden Hill is being sold. So it made no sense to keep them around. But this isn't about that. That's done; there's no undoing it. Don't get me wrong, I have feelings about how it all went down. Those who know me know I have opinions. But I'm not going to rant about it. You might think I'm bitter or upset that I'm now unemployed, but I'm not. I was actually looking forward to it.

Let me get a cup of coffee and I'll tell you about it...

Wake me up, please

General News

So they tell me my father has either dementia, or perhaps even Alzheimer's. He thinks I'm stealing from him and trying to kill him. I feel like the bottom just fell out of my world and I'm about to plummet into some unknown (to me anyway) abyss; or I'm in a roller coaster car heading too far up the starting ramp. It's as unreal to me as my father's delusions are real to him. This is something that you hear about and feel sad about., that you express sympathy and support for but leave the conversation thinking "That's terrible. I'm glad it isn't me." But it is me. It's not supposed to happen to me, or to him. This is the kind of thing that happens to other people, that you read about or talk about in hushed tones.

He thinks I'm trying to kill him. There he was in his hospital bed in his T.V. room turned bedroom, yelling, "Call 911, call 911, call the troopers, help, help, help..." He had been sleeping for over 13 hours. We, my wife and I, were unable to rouse him, even though we and a friend changed his sheets, washed him up and set him up comfortably in bed; he didn't awaken. Even though earlier I picked him up off the floor where he had asked me to lay him down earlier in the day and put him in his bed. Even though we sat there talking to him, telling him about the fight he and I were watching on TV. 13 hours.

The Kringle

General News

The wife person in my life got herself a Kringle for her birthday.

That's how we do things. It saves us both alot of problems with gift shopping; one of us wants something for our birthday or Christmas or whatever, we just go get it. Hassle free to the nth degree!

So she has it and she's sitting next to me like a little kid with a new toy... very cool!

By the way, I know it's not called a Kringle, but I can call it whatever I want, and I like Kringle.

How was your Thanksgiving?

General News

Perhaps I should ask if you even acknowledge the day. I wouldn't if I wasn't married, but my wife is into the holidays and she loves to cook those huge Thanksgiving meals for her whole family. It's been several years since she was able to do so for various reasons, but this year she finally got to do it. My mother always went whole hog on the holidays, too. She didn't have any help most of the time because my father, brother and I were a bunch of lugs who didn't give two hoots about Thanksgiving and thought the whole thing was just a big pain in the ass. But she would spend her entire day in the kitchen making all this stuff, then in less than 15 minutes we'd scarf it down and leave her with the mess. I guess we were also a bunch of selfish, ungrateful louts who didn't give two hoots about my mother either. That's probably a story for another day...
