Don't take it from me. Take it from the book being published today that will mainstream the movement to end corporate personhood: "Corporations Are Not People: Why They Have More Rights Than You Do, And What You Can Do About It," by Jeff Clements with foreword by Bill Moyers.

The Senate is set to vote this week on a Pentagon spending bill that could usher in a radical expansion of indefinite detention under the U.S. government. A provision in the National Defense Authorization Act would authorize the military to jail anyone it considers a terrorism suspect -- anywhere in the world -- without charge or trial.
The measure would effectively extend the definition of what is considered the military's "battlefield" to anywhere in the world, even within the United States. Its authors, Democratic Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan and Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, have been campaigning for its passage in a bipartisan effort. But the White House has issued a veto threat, with backing from top officials including Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and FBI Director Robert Mueller.
"This would be the first time since the McCarthy era that the United States Congress has tried to do this," says our guest, Daphne Eviatar of Human Rights First, which has gathered signatures from 26 retired military leaders urging the Senate to vote against the measure, as well as against a separate provision that would repeal the executive order banning torture. "In this case, we've seen the administration very eagerly hold people without trial for 10-plus years in military detention, so there's no reason to believe they would not continue to do that here. So we're talking about indefinite military detention of U.S. citizens, of lawful U.S. residents, as well as of people abroad."

The American Monetary Institute has authored the American Monetary Act
which would implement three key reforms- nationalizing the Federal Reserve, eliminating the private sector's ability to create money, reclaiming the government's ability to create money and invest it in infrastructure, including people.

Video - FBI seeks power to read your email and discover what web sites you visit - Without a court order
Obama administration (FBI, Department of Justice) seeks to expand National Security Letter powers.
If Congress approves, FBI could force your ISP Internet Service Provider to disclose your emails and what web sites you visit and what files you download. All this done without your knowledge and without a court order.

I trust that by now you have watched footage of World Trade Center 7's destruction, and read the witness statements sent to your office by hundreds of citizens. If so, I also trust that you are gravely concerned and determined to fulfill your responsibility to investigate the destruction of Building 7.
Due to the illegal destruction of evidence at the Building 7 site -- which I will discuss in my letter to you next week -- evidence that Building 7 was intentionally demolished will have to be derived primarily from expert analysis of video footage, and scientific analysis of the little remaining physical evidence. The evidence that I ask you to please examine, discussed fully below my signature, involves:
1) The sudden free fall descent of the entire structure of Building 7 for approximately 105 feet, or 8 stories, over a period of approximately 2.25 seconds, as officially acknowledged - but not explained - by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in its final report on Building 7 issued in November 2008.
2) NIST's failure to produce a collapse model that reproduces the observed destruction of Building 7, and its failure to release its model to the public for independent verification, which renders NIST's report non-falsifiable, unscientific and therefore fraudulent.
3) A melted steel member from Building 7 indicating highly exothermic reactions that can be explained only by the presence of incendiaries used to demolish the building.
Again, thank you for your attention to this most important matter.
