Global 'Bully': Critics Blast US for Manhunt Asylum Seeking Snowden

As Edward Snowden's quest for political asylum plays out as a global cat-and-mouse chase, defenders of international law say the US is acting the bully as it scrambles to locate and gain custody of the 30-year-old NSA whistleblower.

McFrankenfries are coming - #gmo #gmos

Dear friend,

Did you know that genetically engineered (GE) potatoes could soon show up in your fries? People are calling them McFrankenfries, and if the FDA approves GE potatoes (as they might soon do), you might soon be eating them without knowing it.

That's why I just signed a petition to McDonald's asking them not to buy GE potatoes. McDonald's is the largest potato buyer in the country, and if they commit to not buy them, there won't be a market for these GE spuds, and farmers won't plant them.

We need a lot of voices to convince McDonald's. Will you join me in signing the petition to tell McDonald's that you wouldn't eat McFrankenfries?

Join me in suing the NSA over illegal spying, says Rand Paul

As reports go main stream about the NSA spying on millions of Americans through massive phone and email surveillance programs, it seems like nothing is being done to stop this massive breach of privacy. As massive surveillance powers hover over Americans and people all...

I just signed this, you should too - #nsa #fisa #tcot #tgdn #prism #rights #privacy #snowden #surveillance


While there is much we still do not know about the NSA's spying programs, it is clear that they rely on the active participation of private companies to find and collect massive amounts of detailed private information about citizens who have not been suspected of any wrongdoing.

I just signed a petition to make sure that companies know their customers want them to help protect the Constitution, especially if our government won't. You can see what companies can legally do to protect their users and the general public, and sign the petition telling them to do so, at the link below.

NSA Spying

Hi friends,

The revelations about the National Security Agency's surveillance apparatus, if true, are a stunning abuse of our basic rights to freedom and privacy.

A coalition has formed to demand that the U.S. Congress reveal the full extent of the NSA's domestic spying programs. I'm joining the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Mozilla, Free Press, Fight for the Future, Access and many more consumer activists group as part of that coalition, and I'd love for you to join me too:

'Digital Blackwater': NSA Leak Highlights Key Role of Private Contr actors

via (title unknown) by jacob on 6/11/13

Like the mercenaries for hire used by the U.S. in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, and New Orleans—contractors like Blackwater that have come under scrutiny for their extreme lack of oversight—the U.S. government has been outsourcing intelligence services to private companies who have access to the general population's most sensitive information.

Stop the NSA from gathering data via social media web site servers


On or about June 5th, 2013 national press releases stated the NSA was granted by nine of the largest tech firms on the internet to gather data from their servers.  This is violation of all American's personal freedom and must stop.

That's why I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:

"Stop the invasion of personal privacy by the National Security Agency using internet social media web site servers.  Regulate what data may be gathered by the NSA and how it may be gathered."

CONFIRMED- they're spying on you right now

Friends: Please see this urgent email I just received from Demand Progress.

The revelations of spying on telephone customers are extraordinary --
but it gets even worse. The government is spying, in real time, on
rank-and-file Internet users. From the Guardian:

The National Security Agency has obtained direct access to the systems
of Google, Facebook, Apple and other US internet giants, according to
a top secret document obtained by the Guardian.

The NSA access is part of a previously undisclosed program called
PRISM, which allows officials to collect material including search
history, the content of emails, file transfers and live chats, the
document says.

CLick here to call for investigation of this massive surveillance

Let's put it plainly: It has been conclusively demonstrated that the
government is spying on millions of Americans, without meaningful
oversight, and without the assent of the very people -- all of us --
whom our government is supposed to represent.

Click here to call for an investigation and hold the federal
government accountable:

The top secret document obtained by the Guardian also lists Microsoft,
Yahoo, YouTube, Skype, and AOL as providers of user data to the NSA's
PRISM program.

Those who have defended the government's enhanced cyber serveillance
powers in the past argued that the NSA would have to get the consent
of internet companies to obtain electronic communications -- but PRISM
totally circumvents that, by giving the NSA direct access to the
companies' servers!

Click here to condemn this enormous violation of our rights and demand
an investigation:

All this effectively means anything we do on the internet can be (and
has been) monitored by the federal government.

We must not lie down as the NSA and the federal government eviscerate
our privacy rights, invading and surveilling our every move.

This is shocking

Dear friend,

A leaked court document obtained by The Guardian, and since reported on by numerous news outlets, has exposed the government spying on Americans.

Using the Patriot Act, the U.S. government has been secretly tracking the calls of every Verizon Business Network Services customer – whom they talked to, from where, and for how long – for the past 41 days.

It's time to get angry. Be part of a strong public outcry against this program by signing the petition immediately and letting your friends know what's happening in this country.


I just signed this, you should too.

Dear Friend,

If the Fourth Amendment prohibition of unreasonable search and seizure is to mean anything, not to mention our First Amendment right to free speech, we must take action and demand answers in the face of these recent revelations about government spying.

Join me in speaking out.

You Could Encourage the Nevada Governor to Veto Gun Control!

logo Gun Owners of America

Encourage the Nevada Governor to Veto Gun Control!
Gov. Sandoval is sticking his finger in the wind,
trying to decide whether to issue veto

You don’t even have to live in Nevada.

But you should know that Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval (R) is trying to decide whether he should sign or veto SB 221, a bill so extreme that the left-of-center United States Senate even voted down a version of it.

If he signs this Universal Background Check bill, it will have ramifications for you -- even if you don’t live in the Silver State.

So please call 775-684-5670 and press “2” -- to vote AGAINST the universal background check bill (SB 221).  You don’t have to live in the state.  You don’t even have to give your name or address -- the entire process is automated and it will take you less than 13 seconds. 

There are many reasons why ALL gun owners from around the country should call.

For starters, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is generating his own calls into the Governor’s hotline, encouraging the Sandoval to sign the background (registration) bill.

Mayor “Big Gulp” has posted a video where he encourages people from around the country to cast their votes.

But YOUR VOTE could make the difference!

You may not live in Nevada.  And so you may be thinking, “Why should I take action on an out-of-state bill?”

The reason is that what happens in Nevada wont’ stay in Nevada! 

U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) has been on the fence in regard to universal background checks.  He voted right on a key vote back in April, but we had to put a LOT of pressure on him in the state to get him to do so.

Every vote count that the Left made public had Sen. Heller as a possible pick up for their side.  And that’s why we need to keep Nevada from adopting a universal background check bill.  If the Republican Governor signs this bill, it becomes much more likely that this U.S. Senator from Nevada will vote to strap the rest of the country with gun control.

So please call the Governor’s hotline number -- no matter where you live!

ACTION.  Call 775-684-5670 and press “2” -- to vote AGAINST the universal background check bill (SB 221).  Again, you don’t have to live in the state.  As noted above, you don’t even have to give your name or address -- the entire process is automated and it will take you less than 13 seconds.  So no matter where you live, please make this call for the sake of freedom!

Also, please distribute this alert to EVERY PRO-GUN PERSON you know -- your family and friends, even your enemies -- as long as they are pro-gun!  We need to flood this hotline with people pressing “2.”

BILL HIGHLIGHTS. There are a lot of problems with SB 221, but these are the key ones for Nevada residents: 

* SB 221 would expand background checks -- and hence the framework for gun registration -- to most private gun sales.  Even if you live hundreds of miles from a gun shop, if you want to transfer your gun to your next-door neighbor, you and he have to travel together to the gun shop (even if the buyer holds a concealed carry permit!).

* Under most circumstances, when you and your neighbor travel to the gun shop, he’s going to have to get a check with the FBI.  Given that 8% of these checks result in “false denials” -- normally because his name is like someone else’s -- you’ll have to stick around the gun shop for three days. Most likely, your neighbor will effectively be denied the right to own a firearm.

* Even if you’re a purchaser with a CCW, the dealer has to make a 4473 on you -- and, increasingly, ATF is going around to gun shops and copying (a.k.a., registering) that information.

* If you go through the entire Brady Check procedure and it turns out the purchaser of your firearm -- unbeknownst to you (or the Brady System) -- is a marijuana user, you go to prison.

Bottom line:  This is a horrible bill! 
Please call 775-684-5670 and press “2.”

Fwd: CONFIRMED- they're spying on you

It's an outrage: The Guardian has obtained long sought-after evidence of the extent of ongoing spying on Americans under the PATRIOT Act -- and it's as bad as we'd worried.

"The National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon, one of America's largest telecoms providers, under a top secret court order issued in April."

"The order, a copy of which has been obtained by the Guardian, requires Verizon on an "ongoing, daily basis" to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the US and between the US and other countries."

Click here to demand and investigation of -- and end to -- this spying right away:

The government is continuing -- and expanding -- egregious spying and other infringement on our civil liberties that began under the Bush administration.  And enough is enough!

Please sign on to our petition to the House Oversight Committee and Senate Judiciary Committee to demand an immediate investigation of this spying.

Keep GE Salmon Off Our Tables

Keep GE Salmon Off Our Tables: Tell Supermarkets, Food Companies, and Seafood Restaurants to Reject GE Salmon!


Center for Food Safety (CFS), along with Friends of the Earth and a coalition of thirty consumer, food safety, fishing, environmental, sustainable agriculture, parent, public health and animal welfare organizations, have launched a national Campaign for GE-Free Seafood. Over the last month, they've sent letters to the nation’s top grocery stores, seafood companies, and seafood restaurants asking them to commit to not sell genetically engineered fish should it come to market.

Some of the biggest grocery stores in the U.S. have already replied, stating that they will not sell genetically engineered salmon in their stores, including Whole Foods, Target, Trader Joes, Giant Eagle, Meijer, Raley's, Marsh Supermarkets, Aldi, H-E-B, Hy-Vee, and PCC Natural Markets. Seafood companies like Crown Prince and EcoFish have also told CFS they will not buy GE salmon. Additionally, over 400 chefs and restaurants have signed CFS’s Pledge for GE-Free Fish stating that they will not intentionally purchase, sell, or serve genetically engineered salmon in their restaurants. Together, these supermarkets, seafood companies and restaurants are showing that they care about consumers and sustainable fisheries. But there are a lot more companies yet to sign!

Since the FDA has stated that it will likely not require GE fish to be labeled, consumers will have no way of avoiding the fish at the market unless companies make clear to consumers where they stand on the issue.

Help urge these companies to take a position rejecting GE salmon!
