  •  Thanks for the hat tip Bob and great diary (8+ / 0-)

    We all know that government propaganda isn't anything new but as Horace Boothroyd III pointed out in Jesselyn Radack's diary, this would codify it. That's scary stuff. Its pretty much a license to deceive. Bobswern had a great comment in that diary.

    ...also rips away any pretense with regard to the legitimacy of our judicial branch, and the concept of a right to a fair trial, IMHO. Essentially, it enables/authorizes the government to taint the entire "jury pool."
    Vigorously going after whistleblowers who tell the truth about our government's misdeeds, having the legal authority to lie to its citizens (if this stands), NDAA, HR347 (which criminalizes free speech).

    There seems to be a full court press to get these changes put in place. I won't go CT and venture a guess as to why they are in such a rush. I'll just say that its very alarming and I don't like where this is headed.
