The New York Police Department has detained prominent peace activist and former CIA agent Ray McGovern, with witnesses saying he was “yelling in pain” during arrest. McGovern was detained ahead of a David Petraeus speech that he planned to attend.

McGovern was detained before the start of a talk between former CIA director David Petraeus, retired US Army Lt. Col. John Nagl, and author Max Boot on American Foreign Policy at the 92nd St Y., an Upper East Side cultural community center.

Anti-war group ‘The World Can’t Wait’ said the activist was arrested “at protest of speech.” He was reportedly prevented by security from entering, charged with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct, and will not be arraigned until Friday. The group has called for McGovern’s release on Twitter and Facebook.

American Red Cross Accused Of Diverting Funds From Storm Victims To Own PR Campaign – 31 October 2014

RT logoThe American Red Cross was ill-equipped to provide aid to victims of Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Isaac, a new report suggests, and allocated resources not towards offering help, but on generating publicity.

A new report conducted jointly by ProPublica and NPR raises concerns about how the humanitarian group conducted itself in the wake of the storms that occurred in 2012 and 2011, respectively, and claims that the organization’s actions were “politically driven” and not on par with how the Red Cross routinely acts in such situations.

Through internal documents obtained by journalists and interviews conducted with those close to the Red Cross’ response to those emergencies, the reports published this week by both media outlets conclude that evidence depicts “an organization so consumed with public relations that it hindered the charity’s ability to provide disaster services.”

SophiaLoveNewThis again, is a time of Awakening. There are states of “wakefulness” if you can call it that, and what has been brewing within for several years now, perhaps many years, is coming to fruition.

Long have you felt an intellectual understanding and agreement with “new” alternative philosophies around life, love, leadership, prosperity and independence. Yet the daily living of such seemed a “pipe dream”; more fantasy than practical. You’ve adapted in your ways – either dropping out of main stream or maintaining one foot in two worlds. Neither choice has been comfortable or felt complete. Continue reading

‘Establishment Stitch-Up’: Concern Mounts Over Iraq War Inquiry Report – 31 October 2014

RT logoMinisters have come under increasing pressure to name the date when the findings of Sir John Chilcot’s inquiry into the 2003 Iraq war will be published. A debate on the cost of the probe was held in Westminster Hall on Wednesday.

Prime Minister David Cameron claimed earlier this year that the results would surface before the end of 2014. Last week, former Foreign Secretary and Commons leader William Hague said he is hopeful that Chilcot’s report will arrive ahead of the 2015 general election.

Senior Whitehall officials, however, are concerned the report could be used for political gain if published in the immediate run-up to the election.

Counterterrorism Patriot Act Provision Now Widely Used In Criminal Investigations – 31 October 2014

RT logoA provision contained within the post-9/11 PATRIOT Act that allows investigators the power to conduct so-called “sneak and peek” searches has been used extensively for purposes not pertaining to counterterrorism, a new report reveals.

Instead, Mark Jaycox of the Electronic Frontier Foundation wrote recently, law enforcement agencies across the United States have for more than a decade been relying on Section 213 of the PATRIOT Act to conduct secret surveillance during the course of drug crime investigations.

Jaycox, a legislative analyst for the California-based digital rights group, wrote this week that an analysis of information about the use of “sneak and peek” warrants as allowed in Sec. 213 reveals that the controversial counterterrorism legislation is routinely evoked in order for investigators to conduct searches without first informing a suspect — something the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution explicitly forbids.
