"From climate change to Crimea, the natural gas industry is supreme at exploiting crisis for private gain – what I call the shock doctrine" — NK
Last week, in a decision that contorted both law and fact, a state judge ruled against an illiterate, intellectually disabled black man named Jerry Hartfield. Hartfield has been imprisoned for more than 33 years — without a valid conviction or sentence authorizing his confinement. In the latest decision, the judge ruled that even though state and local officials clearly were negligent in letting Hartfield slip through the cracks all these decades, there is nothing in the Constitution that provides him with any protection from being retried. It’s the fact that 10 months have passed since the state courts in Texas (after many years of prodding) first acknowledged the terrible mistake that was made in this case.

yep. This was actually a ‘program’ started by the Fascist/Catholic regime in Spain during Franco’s dictatorship. The idea was to steal babies from ‘left leaning’ parents, poor single mothers and sell them to right wing parents. The Spanish Catholic church has been quiet about this, but there have been dozens of protests and lawsuits. Investigations are still going on. There’s a really interesting documentary on this, I’ll have to find it.
This is another reason why I have zero respect for the Catholic Church in Spain, or Franco sympathizers.

Northrop Plaza, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Students for a Democratic Society at the University of Minnesota is organizing a protest on Thursday, April 17th against former National Security Advisor and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Dr. Rice will be delivering a lecture on campus at the University of Minnesota sponsored by the Humphrey School of Public Affairs.
In her roles within the Bush Administration, Condoleezza committed well-documented crimes against humanity, including:
- An Illegal Invasion of Iraq
- War & occupation in Iraq, causing the death of thousands of civilians
- Supporting torture in Abu Ghraib and Guantanomo Bay
- Declaring the US exempt from the Geneva Conventions
By providing Condoleezza Rice a forum, the U is endorsing her support and approval of unilateral preemptive war, and the global degradation of human rights.
Condoleezza Rice’s presence will not go unchallenged.
Lecture to begin at 5pm, Rally time 4:30pm
