    Elliot Adams Hunger Strike to Close Guantanamo

    in Entertainment


    Hosts Sue Caumont and Jeff Beller welcome Elliot Adams a veteran, former Mayor, and former President of Veterans for Peace who has been on a hunger strike for nearly two months in protest to the US governments operation of Guantanamo Bay were the US says it is holding "enemy combatants". Elliot has taken to internet radio to get his message out since the mainstream media has neglected to cover the strike. Elliot explains why he feels they wont touch it.


    Listen live Fridays at 8:00 PM ET only on Going Beyond Radio.


    This from Mr. Adams:


    Guantanamo is wrong morally and by all religions, by international law and by US law. It violates the Magna Carta, Common Law (the basis of our law), the United Nations Charter, the Nuremberg Principles, the Convention Against Torture, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. It also is an affront to what our founding fathers set out in the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, the dream and image of America as a place of justice, the things I grew up being told the US flag stood for, and even national security. How have we gotten to this low point?

    GRACELAND: JD Gordon, former DOD spokesperson, discusses the Islamic State

    in Politics

    This week former Defense Department spokesperson and current Fox News contributor J. D. Gordon joins Graceland to discuss the Islamic State and the global war on terror.  Are we beating ISIS?  Are we losing?  Can we even tell at this point?


    Gordon explains how this is an ideological war and what the West must do to counteract that.


    We also discuss Guantanamo Bay.  Should the United States close down Gitmo and turn it over to the Castros?  Could it become a base for terrorists that are cozy with Cuba?  Gordon offers some interesting scenarios on this.


    Jennifer Meadows and Curtice Mang are also joined by radio and TV personality from Memphis, TN, Charles Johnson.  “The Great Black Hope” as he’s affectionately known will offer his observations on Hillary Clinton and her email problems.  She used only her personal email account not a State Department email account for “convenience.”  Yes, it makes us laugh too!


    Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton and 46 other Senators send a letter to Iran telling them that whatever Obama agrees to without the consent of Congress can be undone by the next President.  Not an unreasonable possibility.  The Obama administration and other Democrats aren’t happy about it.  We will have some comments on this as well.


    Tune into Graceland with Jennifer Meadows for lively discussion on important topics.

    Obama is becoming the biggest threat to America, siding with Muslims

    in Politics Conservative

    This is a serious and shameful that we have a sitting president that, snubbs his nose at our alies and makes excusis for the murders, which our enemies commit. President Obama certainly shows a lot of favor toward Islam.  Even the most casual observer must realize by now that every time the United States has any interaction with Muslims or Islamic countries, the Muslims always seem to come out ahead. After looking at empirical and anecdotal evidence — Barack Obama's actions and words, have convined me that he is more of an enemy to America than its protector. He is returning terrorists to the battle field by releasing them from Guantanamo, he says we have no right to judge the terrorists and their murders because thousands of years ago the christiains committed simular acts of violence. I am convinced that Mr. Obama is a Muslim. The number one issue at President Obama’s private meeting with Muslim leaders on Wednesday was the rise of Islamophobia in America, not the threat of Islamic terrorism, according to sources in the room with the president. We have a threat in America alright, and it is coming from the White House. Tune in Thursday Feb 12 at 11AM for the rest of the story.

    DALLAS 6: PEACEFUL PROTESTERS CHARGED WITH RIOT IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT

    in Current Events

    Who are the Dallas 6?


    At SCI Dallas (PA), after a series of abuses at the hands of corrections officials, some prisoners housed in the solitary confinement unit decided they had enough and decided to stage a protest in response to the inhumane conditions and mistreatment of prisoners.  They decided it was time to do something about the inhumane conditions, immediately, before another prisoner dies or is brutally harmed. Each prisoner involved in the protest is now collectively referred to as the Dallas 6.  They are Andre Jacobs, Anthony Locke, Anthony Kelly, Carrington Keys, Duane Peters and Derrick Stanley.  On April 28th 2010, prisoner Isaac Sanchez was subjected to a planned attack by the Restrictive Housing Unit (RHU) staff, forcibly removed from his cell and brutally beaten by officers in riot gear.   Sanchez was subject to this attack as a result of speaking out against the abuse at Dallas prison on behalf of his fellow comrades.  After being told they were next, Dallas 6 barricaded themselves in for protection and covered their cell windows.  They asked for outside intervention but instead were beaten, electroshocked and peppersprayed.  They filed complaints against the DOC and 3 months later, in retaliation, they were charged with riot.   As revealed in the Human Rights report, there has  long been a policy within the prison walls of Dallas and the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections (DOC) to operate a corrupt administration under an iron wall of silence. The DOC, State Police, DA's office work in conjunction to railroad these men.  On August 24th, 2015, these men are facing trial for these bogus charges.  There is a campaign underway to dismiss the please visit scidallas6.blogspot.com for more information

    Guantanamo: Hunger Strikes, Human Rights & National Security

    in News

    With the months-long hunger strike by detainees making the news, the detention facility at Guantanamo is once again back in the spotlight.
    The hunger strike in Guantanamo has grown to more than half of the detainees there in the detention camp on the U.S. Army base in Cuba. At least 84 of the facility’s 166 detainees are now participating, protesting the conditions and their indefinite captivity.   Detainees are refusing food, some of them since Feb. 10 following a search and confiscation of some of their belongings. The government has responded, force-feeding many of the detainees through tubes and 40 more medical personnel have been sent to assist with the effort.   We will talk to:   Carlos Warner, attorney with the Federal Public Defender of the Northern District of Ohio who is representing 11 Guantánamo detainees.   David Schanzer professor at Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy and director of the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security at Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill.   Laura Pitter, counterterrorism advisor for Human Rights Watch's US Program.
