Coyote | The lying sacks' own tape shows their lies. All charges dropped when judge realized that the cops edited their videos to give false impression.

Will the Inaugurauction be Televised?

David Roknich | Danny Schechter of mediachannel.org asks whether this year's inaugural protests will be covered. 4 years ago, they were very thoroughly covered by the media everywhere but in the US. And this year, the Forces of Doom believe they have a mandate for further oppression. Danny's interview with FBI special agent James W. Rice doesn't auger well for the those who prize the Bill of Rights. more...  0 Comments

Department of Buildings Confirmed No Certificate of Occupancy Issued For Pier 57; Mayor Intervened To Halt DoB From Releasing Further Information; Links Between DoB and HRPT Come To Light

Drew Poe | The conversion of Pier 57 into a detention facility for arrestees during the Republican National Convention (RNC) was conducted without the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy from the Department of Buildings (DoB) in New York, knowledgeable sources have now confirmed. The lack of a Certificate of Occupancy (C.O.) would be a violation of building codes and regulations governing construction and use of properties in New York, and there is no policy which would allow the New York City Police Department (NYPD) or other city agencies to violate building codes, according to information originating from within the Legal Bureau of the DoB. This information also confirms that the Commissioner for the DoB could in theory take action with regard to the violation of the building codes mandating Certificates of Occupancy, but so far not even a preliminary investigation of the matter is underway. more...  1 Comments
