Barrett Brown To Be Released!

I, Barrett Brown, Have Returned

hbgary emails

FINALLY!
not-barrett-brown ;)Barrett Brown is an imprisoned US journalist and the founder of Project PM, a crowd-sourced investigation into the cyber-industrial complex. He was described as an unofficial spokesperson for Anonymous before he renounced his ties to the collective in 2011. He’s written two books, in addition to several articles about politics and journalism in the digital age. In 2012, the FBI raided his house, and later that year Barrett was indicted in 12 federal charges relating to the 2011 Stratfor hack. The most controversial charge, linking to the hacked data, was dropped, but in 2015 Brown was still sentenced to 63 months in prison. Reporters Without Borders cited Barrett’s prosecution among its reasons for the United States dropping 14 spots on its press freedom rankings in 2014.

Barrett continues to write a column from jail for The Intercept, for which he has won a National Magazine Award and a New York Press Club journalism award.

On 16 July 2015, the Courage Foundation announced that Barrett is the organization’s fifth beneficiary. Courage relaunched Brown’s site with a new overview of Barrett’s case and Project PM’s work, in addition to compilations of Barrett’s journalism, books, legal documents and media appearances.

In addition to legal and commissary fees, Barrett was ordered to pay $890,250 in fines and restitution as part of his sentence. Barrett urgently needs your support.

Barrett is scheduled for release from prison to a halfway house on 29 November 2016.

Barrett Brown

Journalist Barrett Brown sentenced to 63 months in prison for being a journalist

bbbbA court in Dallas has sentenced Barrett Brown to 63 months in prison.
count one 48 months
count two 12 months
count three 3 months

PLUS He must also pay $890,000 to Stratfor and Combined Security in restitution.
50% percent of all gifts and awards will go till paid in full.

He was sentenced for his relationship with a source who said he was close to the hacker group Anonymous. A group infiltrated and taken over by the FBI: this used to be called entrapment and is/was illegal in the US, but law enforcement owned by Wall Street Banks do what they want in the US. The FBI mine as well be called the Staci now.

For publishing a public link to stolen documents and information by Stratfor Security.

Now we know why Edward Snowden left.

On the FBI Practices:“”This is not the “rule of law”, Your Honor, it is the “rule of law enforcement”, and it is very dangerous.” -Barrett Brown

“The copy of the Declaration of Independence they took from me? Will I get that back?” – Barrett Brown in court  (answer = no).

“Good news! — The U.S. government decided today that because I did such a good job investigating the cyber-industrial complex, they’re now going to send me to investigate the prison-industrial complex. For the next 35 months, I’ll be provided with free food, clothes, and housing as I seek to expose wrong doing by Bureau of Prisons officials and staff and otherwise report on news and culture in the world’s greatest prison system. I want to thank the Department of Justice for having put so much time and energy into advocating on my behalf; rather than holding a grudge against me for the two years of work I put into in bringing attention to a DOJ-linked campaign to harass and discredit journalists like Glenn Greenwald, the agency instead labored tirelessly to ensure that I received this very prestigious assignment. — Wish me luck!” -Barrett Brown

“We need to restore a very rigorous tradition of civil disobedience until reasonable well-informed people are confident that the powerful are not above the law.” Barrett Brown (said on the phone after the trial from prison)

Spreading Seeds – the new role model

seedThe Idea: Spreading Seeds

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” R Buckminster Fuller

In building a small and manageable community its members must engage the will rightly, and in doing so it must also engage the heart and mind.

The Seven Basic Human Needs and Rights For Any Civilized Society
Clean and Safe Shelter
Clean Food and Water
A Balanced Ethical Education
Health and Physical Care
Productive Purposeful Work
Free and Open Communication
and like all of Nature and Heaven’s Creations Rest

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” -Aristotle

 

Goal: To build an economic self-sustainable community that becomes an open-source role model for other like minded citizens to copy, build upon, adjust to their community needs and share.

The community must be transparent in its financials, its values will embrace clean safe shelter, clean water and food, the creation of work with meaningful purpose guided by just and sound ethics, the development of common sense education and good health, and the promises of free and open communication to all citizens who choose to participate.

We invite and reach out to open minded visionaries  to guide us financially in order to secure fertile land and help us develop a sound economy through micro-economic sustainable structures.

We invite innovative speakers and practitioners who embrace both old world common sense practices while developing healthy innovative technologies that help us remain true to our self-sustaining goals while keeping them in balance with our community values.

We will strive to bring forward an enlighten social consciousness incorporating and working with environmentally sound models and modern thought. We will work diligently to end the practice of unpersonhood that is growing exponentially around the world.

This world is not wanting of ideas, but ideas are in need of focus and funding.

This idea is not hard, in fact it is older than dirt.

Put aside ‘it takes a village,’ we need to start building the village, and we need to clean the place up – this is the new role model.

The hardest step is going from zero to one.

“An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.”Mahatma Gandhi

Let’s start practicing.

.
.
.
Worthwhile Skills Needed In A New Community
Land Management: water, botanical, biomass, energy, sustainable plant growth.
House Building: grid and off grid electrical solar, clean plumbing, woodworking.
Farming: organic, biodynamic, herbs, aquaponics, animal husbandry, bee and butterfly keeping, plant and wildlife management.
Medical: allopathic, Chinese, holistic.
Education of Children: Steiner, Montessori, classical, community.
Adult Education: guest lecturers, arts, philosophy, academic and physical skills.
Computer and Internet Technology: maintain and secure an open and world wide internet.
Worker Owned Business Management: dotting i’s crossing t’s, visionary business expansion, legacy endowment.
Business Retail: co-op grocery, bakery, artists co-op, artisan village bazaar.  *
Worker Support: developing new skills and training unskilled labor to become skilled.
Grant Writing and Fund Raising: invaluable.
Ethical Media & Communication: inviting guest speakers, educating the public, community outreach, radio communication.
Government Liaison: a representative voice in the old world.
Lawyering: to deal, confront and protect against the obsolete system.

*(Do not fear the word co-op, it is just another means of trade and barter, like a time bank).

“If any State in the Union will declare that it prefers separation with the first alternative, to a continuance in union without it, I have no hesitation in saying, ‘let us separate’. I would rather the States should withdraw, which are for unlimited commerce and war, and confederate with those alone which are for peace and agriculture.” -Thomas Jefferson

“There will never be a really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly.” – Henry David Thoreau
