WHERE DO YOU STAND?
The Illinois congressional delegation had the chance to curtail NSA surveillance months ago . . . but they failed to support the Amash Conyers amendment. Now they have a fresh chance - pass the USA Freedom Act!
Demand a response from Illinois representatives today. It's time to find out where they stand. And to make changes on March 18 if they won't stand up for us.

Naturally, the jury in the NATO3 case has no reason to buy into Anita Alvarez's narrative about the threat of terrorism from ordinary citizens and how it justifies a culture of fear and a militarized, all-seeing, secret-driven police state. Which is not to say that they're not concerned about terrorism.

There will be elections for 435 House seats in 2014. In at least some of those races, U.S. surveillance, secrecy, and assassinations will be an issue.
