H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.
[After the commentary, in light of the passing of Bluegrass legend Earl Scruggs... His son Randy, and Joan Osborne, with a reminder for us all. "We're only passin' thru". Courtesy of the respective artists.]
Breaking: Tim DeChristopher, the prisoner of conscience who 'disrupted' a BLM land auction intended for oil and gas interests, was moved back to the MINIMUM SECURITY CAMP late on the night of Wed March 28th, after FCI Herlong, the BOP office in Washington, DC and members of Congress received thousands of phone calls… from YOU!
Peaceful Uprising will not stop investigating this situation because the most important questions remain unanswered: Why was Congress involved in moving Tim into isolated confinement, and who ordered the investigation?~~Peaceful Uprising Press Release«o» Nightlights over Afghanistan - Due to the tendency of the ISAF's Afghan miliary trainees to kill their trainers US troops sleeping quarters will be segregated from the Afghani troopers with sentries in place.
«o» The final day of the US Supreme Court hearings on ObamaCare did not focus on whether the boilerplate left out of the multi-part bill that would normally state the rest of the bill will remain in force if any other part is declared void by the court, which means we should expect an all or nothing decision. There will be a test vote tomorrow and then the justices go into committee. More.
«o» The coup in Mali continues to hold under what appears to be a 'conservative government' with the US and other nations holding back on approval. One reason may be the neo-colonial government it overthrew was much friendlier to mining interests, with the current regime considering nationalizing the industry.
«o» In Congress the Simpson-Bowles amendment went in front of the House yesterday but only thirty eight members voted for it. Today the draconian Ryan budget goes to the floor. The federal budget is required to be complete by April first... Good luck.
«o» The US and South Korea are holding their annual joint war games with live ammo right on the North Korean border even as negotiations with North Korea regarding aid continues. There are 9,000 US Marines and 1,000 South Korean troops engaging in this exercise... a reduction from previous years.
RIP Earl Scruggs:
Bluegrass pioneer Earl Scruggs dies at age 88
By Chris Talbott, Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — It may be impossible to overstate the importance of bluegrass legend Earl Scruggs to American music. A pioneering banjo player who helped create modern country music, his sound is instantly recognizable and as intrinsically wrapped in the tapestry of the genre as Johnny Cash’s baritone or Hank Williams’ heartbreak.
Scruggs died Wednesday morning at age 88 of natural causes. The legacy he helped build with bandleader Bill Monroe, guitarist Lester Flatt and the rest of the Blue Grass Boys was evident all around Nashville, where he died in an area hospital. His string-bending, mind-blowing way of picking helped transform a regional sound into a national passion. [In Full @ Salon]
In OTHER News:
From Peaceful Uprising's Site:Environmental activist Tim DeChristopher, who was given a two-year sentence in prison for making fake bids in a Utah public land auction that was later found to be corrupt, has reportedly been moved to solitary confinement after a member of Congress contacted the Bureau of Prisons.If the description is correct, it seems like a congressman is trying to intimidate (Tim) DeChristopher for wanting to return money. To amplify the punishment because of an email is cruel. That the punishment is to place DeChristopher into solitary confinement is even more inhumane. In fact, it is what a fascist country would do to a political prisoner.
Peaceful Uprising, a climate change activism group which DeChristopher co-founded, states in a press release posted on March 27:On the evening of Friday March 9th, Tim DeChristopher was summarily removed from the minimum security camp where he has been held since September 2011, and moved into the FCI Herlong’s Special Housing Unit (SHU). Tim was informed by Lieutenant Weirich that he was being moved to the SHU because an unidentified congressman had called from Washington DC, complaining of an email that Tim had sent to a friend. Tim was inquiring about the reported business practices of one of his legal fund contributors, threatening to return the money if their values no longer aligned with his own.[Dissenter @ Firedoglake has more] (Still more @ CommonDreams)
According to Prison officials, Tim will continue to be held in isolated confinement pending an investigation.There is no definite timeline for inmates being held in the SHU — often times they await months for the conclusion of an investigation.
And get THIS:
It has come to our attention that William Koch entered into an antitrust settlement where his company, Gunnison Energy, and SG Interest, a Texas energy company, conspired to orchestrate the bidding at a BLM oil and gas lease auction in Colorado. They memorialized this conspiracy in a memorandum of understanding that was subsequently revealed by a whistleblower.
The Department of Justice settled the matter by having each company pay a $275,000 fine, and allowed the conspirators to retain their successful BLM oil and gas leases, without any personal consequences. Tim was charged with conspiring to defeat the Act that created the auction, (a felony) and for making false statements to the Government (also a felony).
These oil and gas companies actually conspired to defeat an identical BLM auction, and made false statements to the Government (according to the Department of Justice). No Oil and Gas executive was charged with felonies and thrown in jail. They were given a token slap on the wrist and went back to drilling. Tim, a peaceful protester, who simply embarrassed the BLM by catching them making big mistakes, is now in a TINY CELL because someone from CONGRESS wants to keep him even quieter? WTF is going on here??
This is not justice, it is political persecution. [Full Press Release @ Peaceful Uprising]
