Judicial reform activist Bruce Doucette is next Denver sovereign to face joint FBI JTTF IRS & Colorado AG show trial

DENVER, COLORADO- Into the second week of the Doucette sovereignty trial you can't help but imagine yourself attending the burning of a medieval heretic. There but for a modicum more caution than courage go I.   Sovereign Bruce Doucette and his nine co-conspirators, who prosecutors allege constituted a "criminal enterprise", were saying what most know to be true about our nation's corrupt justice system. Their attempts to bring reform however sparked the fear and wrath of the targeted cronies, who now lash back with all the authoritarian muscle with which they conduct their misdeeds. 52591

Can Idle No More First Nations assert their sovereignty for real?

Here's an idea for First Nations rattling their chains with IDLE NO MORE. Declare your sovereignty for real. "Sovereignty" has become a meaningless descriptor, now counting puppet states of Iraq and Afghanistan. How did we expect George W. Bush to explain what sovereignty meant? Even he probably knew what it was supposed to mean, and so do you. Sovereignty doesn't mean captive reservations, rural ghettos, Gaza Strips or West Banks slowly being ethnically cleansed by attrition. Sovereignty means independent nation states, not dupes of duplicitous treaties. Chief Theresa Spense is right to hold out to meet with the Canadian Prime Minister and a representative of the English crown. First Nations leaders deserve to meet with fellow heads of state, if the treaty lands are truly sovereign.

Dit Fromage!

Ah, photography and cheese, together again. In French. New concept, Calendar Girls posing with ... CHEESE! It doesn't translate very well, culturally, or didn't. "Say Cheese" becomes "Dit Fromage! Dit Fromage!" Warning, the webpage is in French. So for those right wing types who are still pissed off at the French for not just allowing McDonalds to take over their country... Too bad. You lost, EU won, get over it. So the French have taken up the American bastardization of what was French technology in the first place, photography. Maybe now the Americans will take up something more than a mere shadow of French raw milk cheese. Instead of cheese made from Pasteurized milk. Which doesn't make too much sense, since cheese is rotten milk in its beginning, why Pasteurize out the bacteria and fungi which make it if you're just going to put them back later? You know, that was the "beef" McDonalds AND the Texas Cattle Raisers and Breeders Association had with them? Not so much a really well-deserved bit of Anti-American cultural snobbery. 20164

Tribal Sovereignty means uh… you’re a sovereign entity, with a US passport.

Remember when George Bush couldn't define "sovereignty?" Maybe it wasn't his fault. How would you describe sovereign lands where US extraction and exploitative industries can operate without regulatory oversight, and tribes can issue identification papers unless they mean to travel somewhere. When the original Indian treaties were signed, US destiny was manifested with promises that the former landholders' sovereignty would be respected. The Iroquois Lacrosse team have just learned tribal sovereignty means carrying the occupier's passport. 18740

If you really don’t want to kill civilians, don’t point loaded guns at them.

I tell you what, if Bibi actually gets away with this shit, based on the defense he's mounting, then Death Row inmates across America will be rejoicing. What's the difference between Armed Robbery and Capital Murder? A twitch of the finger. Israel and the U.S. have this habit of (AFTER killing usually large numbers of Civilians in "accidents") insisting that they trained their Soldier/Cops to "minimize the risk" of blowing away civilians. That's a God-Damn lie. If they were to do "everything we can" to not kill civilians, one of the first and the most important elements of such a policy would be Not Shooting In Their Direction. When IDF blew away KIDS in Gaza they accused the Palestinians of the murders that were committed through bullets coming from Israeli Galil Rifles (a reworked AK-47 that fires U.S. standard .30 caliber rounds) held by Israeli soldiers. In an action where the IDF were actively invading a country they themselves had formally recognized as being Not Israel. Guess that when you declare a region to be SEMI autonomous it's like what my cousin used to laugh about in advertising... a Semi-Boneless Steak. Does it have bones in it or not? But a
