CIAs Stress Position Torture

By focusing on waterboarding, we can sometimes forget that the other "alternative techniques" for "enhanced interrogation" are also forms of torture, even when they leave no permanent marks, or, in the words of AEI's John Yoo, do not cause major organ failure. The term "stress position" for example, when uttered by someone like Rush Limbaugh, who described some of what happened at Abu Ghraib as nothing more serious than fraternity hazing, can seem banal, even defensible. These positions, which the president strongly supports, can nonetheless become very quickly hideous acts of cruelty. Here's a photo of what the Nazis called Pfahlbinden.
Nazipfahlbinden
You can seen that individuals are contorted just by the weight of their own bodies into positions of excruciating pain that lasts until it is unbearable. In this picture, it does not appear that the methods are being used to interrogate. They are being used for sadistic purposes. They are worse than the 'stress positions" we have evidence of in US custody because the Nazi prisoners were literally suspended in the air, their feet barely touching the ground. But the victums of US stress positions were chained to fixtures and walls with hands chained above and behind the head, with feet barely on the ground. They had a tiny bit more support for their feet, but it often made the procedure longer and in end, therefore, more painful.

When you hear a banal phrase like "stress position", and hear people dismiss it, remember that everything is in the doing. And when human beings are given total control over others, they are capable of great evil. Sane and civilized societies do not give permission for such things. And they do not make excuses for them. And when they discover they have been done, they investigate and prosecute those who broke the law.

We can no longer in good conscience trust the politicians, the corporations or the pigs to police themselves.

Marijuana and statehood activists are chaining themselves to ‘liberty pole’ on the Mall

(WashPost) At the very deliberate time of 4:20 a.m. Wednesday, dozens of D.C. marijuana activists arrived at the Mall. They put on some music, constructed a 42-foot “liberty pole,” and chained themselves to it.

“Chained to this pole, I feel more free than I have in my memory,” said protester David Keniston. “We are living democracy right now.”

Led by the DC Cannabis Campaign, the organization that spearheaded efforts to legalize marijuana in the city, the nearly week-long vigil in which city activists decry congressional meddling into local D.C. affairs began Wednesday.

The activists decided to start the around-the-clock protest on April 15, Tax Day, because, as the city’s license plates say, the District has “taxation without representation.” D.C. residents pay federal taxes, but do not have voting representation in the Senate or House.  The vigil is slated to end at 4:20 p.m. on, well, April 20, more commonly known as 4/20.

Do you know the best part of my job?

By Christopher Rice

The best part of this gig so far is when I open my emails and someone says: "Thanks, last night I avoided getting caught up in a sting op, thanks to the information on your site I saw what was happening and got the hell out of there. And sure enough, I got a few blocks away and here comes the black and whites to pick up the suckers. Thanks again."

Kept one more person out of the system. One less person going to court, being sent to jail or prison. Feels great, then I  open "comments"...

The worst part of this job is the haters. No matter what there is always someone tryin' to poop in your Cheerios. What's scary is they don't rag on my writing or website any more only on my advertisers. First it was the BDSM community ads, now it's the pot ads or bong ads. Fortunately though I'm like Stevie Wonder and I see right through 'em.

Then I open my Paypal account and there's not one single donation. So then I have to spend time searching for even more advertisers instead of researching and writing articles. And the haters want everything sourced and double spaced and then still complain....

UPDATE: "People tell me everything I need to know about rock & roll, politics n' all about our new band. But some people never happy "don't like it" - "didn't see it" oh oh. They had to make a comment! Your new drummer's crazy, your manager's an asshole! get a new shirt? I can't stand your guitar player! Rolling stone, Village Voice, picky picky picky! Said we can't sing, can't play, can't write anyway! New name - old name - carry on, with such insane fuckers everywhere, New York - L.A. times rock & roll magazines, said we couldn't make it. But here we go again on rock and roll radio. People tell me everything I need to hear about what we need, what we. Got, what we're never gonna get. Old singers gone away - whatcha gonna do about it? Gold records, rock & roll n' why don'tcha sound like you used to in '65? '69? '75? Everybody stand up, they got to make a comment, critics said they'll never make it, never make it, never never never never never never never! Fuck you! we do what we want!"                        By Jefferson Starship "Stairway to Cleveland"

I'm suppose to contribute my time and energy for free. After all doesn't everyone work for free. I'm sure I can support myself on, what did we bring in today? Oh yeah nothin'. 

So next time you want to complain about my porn sites/links or type of advertisers I have, remember who pays the fuckin' bills around here, okay? 'Cause last time I checked you contributed nothing, you are just taking up space, so don't embarrass yourself and your momma if you had one by being a hater.
UPDATE:
 

Life is great, enjoy it. The second best thing about this gig is having your articles reposted in over a thousand different blogs and websites around the world.

I'm still adding the final touches but Underground America Inc. is back online! We are completely independent and free from any censorship.

http://www.copsrcorrupt.com Enjoy my labor. I've set up a Cheating wives club site since you won't pay me, I'm going to bang your wife if you got one. Oh yeah if you were offended by the pot or BDSM advertisers I must quote from Suicidal Tendencies and say "maybe you needed to be offended, and one more thing..."

If you're unfamiliar with that band or quote, you can imagine the rest, if you have an imagination or go look it up if you don't.

A big thank you to everyone who has contributed, time, energy or money to our projects. Much appreciated, much love. -C

(How to) Shoplifting (for Dummies)

By Christopher Rice and Diane Gordon

Stores today are not there for you. They are there for profits. They may claim low prices, but in all truth the merchandise is usually marked up 200% or more. 

I have seen some instances where cologne has been marked up 450%. This is outrageous. 

Why should we pay those kinds of prices, when we can get it for free. Many stores may claim that shoplifting increases prices, but the real reasons for price increases is greed.

And remember Robin Hood, steal from the rich and give to the poor.


They won't always stop you if the sensors go off. I have set the sensors off a couple of times and they didn't do anything. No one even approached me because they didn't have proof.

I make sure to go where there are no cameras and if it has a beeper in it I go to the bathroom and cut it off. I use my kids diaper bag or my purse, it is really easy to steal from Wal-Mart until the LP (Loss Prevention) people realize you are there everyday.

I'd say it is safer to push it right out the front door at about 11pm.

Also there are no LP guys at Wal-Mart past 10 pm. 

Also each Wal-Mart is different in which aisles have no cameras, usually the panty aisle or the toys or sometimes lawn and garden, but it's always different and the new Wal-Marts don't have as many cameras but the ones that they do have are tiny and discreet.

The LP guys will tell you that if you ever come in Wal-Mart again they will catch you because they have facial recognition software which is bull shit, i go in Wal-Mart everyday and they know me and still don't catch me.

If you run out of shampoo or something why would you waste money on it when you don't have to, or if you want a drink and have no money, don't think of it as a problem, just go to the store and get a drink.

A common technique, especially because fitting rooms aren't well monitored, is for the thief to steal garments by putting them on under her own clothes and wearing them out of the store.

Related: Underground America is back online. How to beat the police, CPS, DEA, FBI, IRS and NSA. How to beat any drug test, police sting and how to beat your court case and more.

What to do if you are caught?

LP employees are taught to approach and apprehend a suspect only if they witness the suspect concealing the items and exiting the premises with the concealed items.

You’ve shoplifted items by concealing them in your secret patch pocket sewn inside your pants. You exit the store and are suddenly approached by a loss prevention employee requesting you come with them.

What the hell do you do?

Run? Verbally defend yourself? Just keep walking as normal?

It really all depends on the situation.

I really don’t recommend running.
Immediately that is.

When to Run

 

Unless you have a million warrants out, have more than 2 previous shoplifting charges, or are on probation you shouldn’t really run immediately.

If you run, you’re automatically saying you are guilty. Period.

If you’re the type that’ll want to run regardless, the best thing you can do is immediately seem passive and cooperative.

Immediately start walking back with LP with an “I’m sorry” look on your face. After you walk about 3 seconds back, LP will assume that you are going to cooperate and will relax, and then you can run like hell.


When To Cooperate Fully

 

If you have under $30-$50 and are a first time shoplifter, you probably won’t be going to jail depending on what state you’re in. You’ll probably receive an order to appear in court with a misdemeanor theft charge. It’s not the end of the world.

So if you’re a passive person by nature, you’ll be OK cooperating with them.

Don’t Try To Talk Your Way Out of It


The reason why a loss prevention employee would approach you is because they have clear evidence you shoplifted. They watched you conceal the items and walk out the store with no intention on paying for the items.

9 times out of 10, they are 100% sure where you have the items.

When you try to talk your way out of it, you’re putting everyone in a aggressive defensive mode. They’ll feel it’s clear you don’t want to admit or come back to the LP office with them, so they’ll be ready if you resist or run.

Going back to above, I recommend becoming passive immediately. Make them feel as if you’re saying “Ok you caught me, I give up”, and then run like hell!

Shoplifting for the holidays

1. There are more people in the stores.

 You can use crowded stores to your advantage by hiding in plain sight. On the flip side, don’t be a fucking moron and look like a thief. Dress and act the way all the other shoppers do, or else you’re going to stick out and get your ass sent to jail.

2. Employees are very busy, clueless, and stressed.

Every cashier is fucking miserable during the holidays. I know this first hand as I was a cashier working holidays at a Circuit City in my teens – as mentioned in my previous post. Palm a small pricy item at checkout in plain view, I guarantee you the cashier will just be overwhelmed and trying to scan your shit as fast as possible. Same goes for the employees roaming around departments. They’re too busy to notice anything. Unless..you’re a moron and stick out.

3. Sales displays are everywhere and endcaps are larger

Marketing & Advertising is in full force during holidays meaning the store is cluttered with places optimal for hiding concealment. For example, if you have a pocket sized item (let’s say a flash drive) you want to jack you walk extremely close to a display (or endcap) and pocket your item in a clean motion – almost as if you’re reaching for your phone.

While these reasons may seem obvious to some, beginner shoplifters often overlook the opportunity. Whether you’re an opportunist or leading a professional theft ring, you’re bound to find a way to use the above reasons to your advantage.

Do's and Don'ts of Shoplifting

1. RACIAL PROFILING: Never Wear Clothing That Will Make You a suspect.


If you look like a thug chances are store employees and LP will be up your ass every aisle you go down. The best thing for guys is get a business cut, wear a dress shirt and tie if you have one.  

Even if you don’t believe someone should be judged by how they look, it doesn’t matter. What matters is what the people trying to catch you believe.

Baggy clothes in general are good places to hide stolen items. Some people have extra pockets or hooks sewn into coats and jackets.

If you’re going to steal and shoplift, seriously, don’t look like you’re going to steal and shoplift. Period.

2. Never have anything Illegal on you.


This may seem remedial. But, should you get caught or questioned, it’s best not to have anything on you that may confirm that you are a criminal with criminal intentions. Not only that, you won’t stand a chance with getting away with a “warning”.

Cops have to be called if you possess anything illegal.

Leave your illegal shit in your car or at home, if you have one.

3. Never Bring an Empty Looking Bag or Purse


I’ve trained Loss Prevention associates to be on alert for women carrying empty or flat looking purses and men wearing empty looking or flat backpacks. The reasoning behind this is it’ll be easy to tell if the backpack/purse is filled with stolen merchandise upon exiting the store.

The baby carriage or stroller is a great tool for shoplifters. There are always blankets, toys, and other things in strollers (including the baby) that merchandise can be hidden under. Some thieves have even built false bottoms in baby carriages.

A newspaper can be used to hide small objects.

Umbrellas with handles are handy for shoplifters trying to steal small items. A common tactic is to keep a closed (but not snapped) umbrella hanging on one's elbow or leaning against a counter, and then to drop items into it.


4. Never look around and seem to be on alert.


Don’t make this mistake. Don’t be looking around to see if anyone is watching you. Eventually, someone will be watching you watching for other people.

Instead, seem so relaxed you could be mistaken as being tired. Slow down your pace when you walk. Remember, you’re trying to appear normal. Normal means you are just shopping and have nothing to hide or exciting going on. Just shopping.

Maybe throw in an occasional yawn, just be careful not to make them look fake.
Hide in plain sight.

If a friend of yours goes with you. Have him/her dress/act very suspicious. When an employee sees someone acting suspicous they key in on that person. Soon they will have everyone in that store watching him/her. Then you go where ever the merchandise is, and steal away. You leave with whatever you want, and then your friend leaves soon after, feeling good that he/she has just fooled a store full of idiots.

5. Don’t grab more than one of the same items


Let’s say you’re planning to resale a shit load of batteries after stealing them from Wal-Mart. Be extremely careful of how many you get at a time.


They were caught before they even shoplifted.

Don’t be this person. Should you need to grab items in bulk, be sure not to have them in plain sight. But, at the same time, don’t make it obvious you’re trying to hide a bulk of items from being seen.

Do NOT be fooled by cameras with the name SVS.  These are fakes! They do nothing but sit there. They look real by the way they have a cable going into a wall, and are plugged in and have a red light on, but they are still fake. GUARANTEED!

Do NOT be stupid enough to steal around other shoppers. I have seen many instances where the employees never saw a person shoplift, but a customer had turned a shoplifter in, and the customers word is just as incriminating as the employees.

When you start walking out the door if you see someone following you, then run for dear life. Most of the time you can get away. 

If you have a get-a-way car waiting, then be sure that the license plate is covered up. 

Shoplifting is an art. An art of manipulation.

With practice you’ll get good at it.

Step up your game:

If you’re at a level where you are willing to step up your shoplifting game, you may want to consider making a Booster Bag. However, understand how it’s going to look should you get apprehended. There’s not going to be a doubt in the judges mind whether you intended to steal or not.

If you’re a dude, be sure not to stick out with a man purse or sketchy looking backpack.

Here’s a quick how to video from YouTube. I recommend improvising…



Grocery stores are probably the easiest to hit. Most have low security if any. Only problem, is that most people think the only thing you can get at a grocery store is food. WRONG!! Go over to the HBA (Health & Beauty Aids). There is gold there.

Get everything from Advil to Obsession Cologne. You ask yourself, why do i need 80 boxes of Advil? Take one box for yourself, then go sell the rest to friends, or take the stuff to a Flea Market, set yourself up a booth, and sell away. Most boxes of Advil cost around $10-$20 each.


You sell for $5-$10, and instant profit. But be careful in the HBA area, that is usually where the security will be, if any!


How to return the crap you stole for the crap that you really want

Even without a receipt most stores will make exchanges if you keep it in the original packaging. Gift cards can easily be re-sold or used to get the crap that you really want. Some people will wander around a parking lot picking up receipts that other customers discarded and then steal the same products from any store and then return for a full refund.

Some stores that only allow you to exchange for an in store gift card will allow you to purchase a Visa gift card using their gift card, then the cash can be withdrawn from the Visa gift card.

Don't be nervous about returning merch, if they don't catch you in the act of stealing they really can't do anything after the fact.

Corporations, banks, churches and greedy individuals who steal from the poor and the homeless are like cancer that needs to be destroyed.

The founding fathers destroyed commercial cargo on British ships by throwing tea into the Boston Harbor. The equivalent today would be to board commercial vessels from China and throw the cargo into the Pacific ocean, to protest our trade policies/deficits, low tariffs, shipping jobs over-seas, corporate off shore tax havens, etc., etc.  Shoplifting hits 'em where it hurts most, merchandise/ money.

Since forming this new organization for antagonistic struggle, we have attacked the system, showing that struggle is possible because the system is vulnerable.

Rape and Torture: Just the Tip of the Iceburg, Why Cheney really tortured innocent Iraqi's

By

Dick Cheney wanted to invade Iraq and overthrow Saddam

This had been published in 1997, in the Dick Cheney instigated PNAC documents and website, the Neocon agenda to overthrow 6 Middle East regimes by force, destabilize most of the Middle East and instigate perpetual war.

Dick Cheney wanted to show a connection between Saddam and Al-Qaeda and 9/11


Dick Cheney knew that Saddam and Osama Bin Laden were ideological enemies and there were no connections between them.


Saddam ran a secular regime and had to suppress Islamic Extremism within Iraq (and the wider Muslim world) in order to remain in power.


Osama Bin Laden's stated aim was to set up a Global Caliphate and institute Sharia Law.

Dick Cheney knew there was no evidence to connect Saddam with 9/11 because Dick Cheney knew that Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with it. See 4.

Dick Cheney knew there are two main ways of producing false information by getting people to tell lies


You can bribe people to tell lies.


You can threaten people into telling lies. Torture is a very good way of threatening people - it causes them actual physical harm and they will say whatever they think the torturers want to hear in order to stop the torture.

Cheney used both methods to obtain false statements on Iraq
He used bribery on people like Chalabi (with promises of future power) and bribes on potential sources within Saddam's regime about Saddam's non-existent WMD programs.


He used torture on the prisoners the US had recently captured in Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Torture doesn't work in the context of producing "actionable intelligence"


This is well documented and well known to the intelligence services of all countries.


The FBI refused to participate in the CIA torture program and "obtained the maximum amount of actionable intelligence through the normal rapport-building interrogation methods" - source ex FBI leadership, ex FBI officers and Ex senior CIA officer.

When Dick Cheney and the CIA say that torture saved American lies they are lying


They claim that torture produced large quantities of "actionable intelligence" - this is a lie. Torture produced large quantities of false intelligence and lies that had the CIA and FBI running around wasting large amounts of effort and time, chasing after non-existent terrorist plots.


Cheney and the CIA claim the fact that these never existent terrorist plots never happened "saved lives". This is an obvious and blatant lie.

Torture is a War Crime and torturers must be prosecuted under US and UN law  


There are no valid exceptions or get out clauses. You cannot use torture even when there is a possible threat of "imminent attack" - this is enshrined in US Law.

Torture enabled the US to locate and kill Osama Bin Laden


 This is a lie.


This was propagated in the film Zero Dark 30 and is an outright lie and the entire film is pro CIA and pro military propaganda that bears no relation to any truth.


The information and leads that led to the raid on Bin Laden's compound in Pakistan was obtained via normal intelligence methods and not through torture.

Cheney was justified in invading Iraq anyway because of WMD's


 This is a lie.


Saddam Hussein didn't have any WMD's.


The only "WMD's" Saddam had were a few old and rusty artillery shells that contained degraded chemical weapons. The Iraqi's would have gassed themselves if they had tried to fire these shells at US troops. US troops who later found and tried to remove these shells in Iraq, became ill because the shells were rusty and leaked their contents. The US troops didn't die of exposure because the chemicals had degraded.


The chemical weapons that Saddam once had, had been supplied by Donald Rumsfeld working for Reagan during the 1980's. Saddam had used these weapons to gas Iranians during the Iraq-Iran war and to gas Kurds to put down a US encouraged rebellion after the first Gulf War. In large part Saddam had used up the chemical weapons he once had and the rest of them were unusable as a weapon of war.

Saddam did not have a nuclear weapons program.

Both of the above were confirmed just prior and just after the Iraq invasion by the UN Weapons inspectors - Hans Blix and his team and by David Kelly - the UK UN weapon inspector and whistle blower.

Both the CIA and MI6 intelligence reports concluded that Saddam didn't have any WMD's.


The CIA reports were doctored in preparation to sell the Iraq war, by Paul Wolfowitz working in his office in the White House from January/February 2001.
 

The MI6 intelligence reports were "sexed" up by Tony Blair and John Scarlett - Blair's Head of the UK's Joint Intelligence Committee.

Torture used after the invasion of Iraq "saved lives"


 This is a lie.


As above, torture produces large quantities of false intelligence and lies.


The small quantity of "actionable intelligence" would have been obtained by the standard "rapport-building" interrogation methods used by intelligence services throughout the world (including the FBI) or other standard and LEGAL information collecting methods.

Torture costs lives

 This is a truth.

Torture is a weapon of terror. It induces terror in both the person being tortured and in the wider population as they hear stories about the people being tortured and that they might suffer the same fate.


Torture is used for propaganda purposes by obtaining false information and false witnesses for governments to tell lies.


Torture is also used by governments to terrorize a domestic population into submission by an authoritarian regime. In the case of Iraq this didn't work and led to the escalation of the civil war when Sunni's learned of the torture that was being carried out and was widespread at US run prisons such as Abu Ghraib and Camp Bucca.

Torture wastes time and effort by the investigating authorities, investigating false leads - when they could be spending time investigating genuine leads from genuine intelligence.

It alienates the local population from the instances of torture reported by prisoners when they are released, the state of the bodies for prisoner deaths and the false raids and arrests (for even more torture) carried out on innocent people as a result of lies told under torture.

All of the above will recruit some neutral or passive opponents of a regime into being active opponents and in the case of Iraq, recruit active fighters against US forces in the "Al-Qaeda" led rebellion against the US Occupation.

More American troops died in Iraq, as a result of torture being used in Iraqi prisons than would otherwise have been the case.


Over 4,000 US troops died and over 30,000 were wounded as a result of Cheney's lies that resulted in US public support for the illegal invasion of Iraq.

Americans are still being put at risk from torture.


They are at risk because the torture previously carried out is a recruitment tool for Islamic Extremists - see ISIS.

They are at risk because US torture encourages brutality in general.


They are at risk because the US has not offered an apology for the torture previously carried out.


They are at risk because the US has not prosecuted the people that initiated, designed, authorized and carried out torture.


They are at risk because torture is still being carried out by the US and it's proxies in places like Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay and probably on board US warships kept for the purpose in international waters. 


They are at risk from the wars started and propagated by the US in Iraq, Libya and Syria and from the undeclared US wars in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia.
Jeremy Scahill reported that rendition to US warships is still being carried out from Somalia.

The Senate Torture Report is only the tip of the ice berg on torture


Only 500 pages of a redacted summary of the 6,700 page Senate Report has been released to the public.


Obama is currently fighting to stop the release of further pictures of American torture.


Torture at certain prisons, such as Abu Ghraib, was excluded from the Senate investigation. 


The torture carried out by rendition to foreign authoritarian governments in places like Libya, Syria and Egypt was excluded from the scope of the report.
The involvement of the British security services in the torture program was redacted from the Senate Torture Report. 


Obama has not rejected torture - he has only banned certain types such as water boarding (water boarding had been discontinued anyway).


Obama has stopped the use of CIA "black sites" for torture in Poland, Lithuania and Romania etc.

Allegations of child rape and other forms of hideous torture within Abu Ghraib and elsewhere need to be formally investigated. See 1

Allegations of recent or current rendition to and torture upon US warships, stationed in international waters, need to be formally investigated. See 2

Allegations of torture still being carried out within prisons in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay need to be formally investigated. See 3

The guilty must be prosecuted and punished as the only effective way for the US to apologize for the torture carried out.


All those responsible for torture, up to and including the most senior members of the Bush administration must be jailed. They have committed War Crimes as defined under US and international law. 


The US must formally state that it will never torture again (this is currently far from the case).


The above will take away a terrorist tool currently used by Islamic Extremists to recruit more Muslims from joining Jihad.

Further information on the CIA torture program and why Dick Cheney used torture is within this:-

These people tortured to obtain false information to go to war on a lie in Iraq.  Cheney, Rumsfeld, Bush, Gonzales, Tenet, Hayden and all the other torturers should be in jail.

GW Bush and the Neoconshttp://ian56.blogspot.com/2012/09/gw-bushs-record-and-mitt-romney.html

It was very obvious, for anyone that stopped and thought about it, to see that the invasion of Iraq and the Neocon agenda would lead to what we have now.

Perpetual war, a rise in support for Islamic Extremism (see ISIS) and a very significant weakening of America's strategic and economic position.

I saw it in early 2002 and I'm no genius. Other people saw it coming a lot earlier than me.
