The use of “watch lists” to harass dissidents and journalists—as well as Muslims—appears to be growing, as the author discovered when he recently got caught in the net. By Dave Lindorff

According to Ramzi Kassem, a professor at CUNY School of Law and founding director of CLEAR, a legal clinic that assists those caught up in the government’s Terrorist Watch List net, “The number of people on the No Fly and Selectee lists controlled to a large degree by the FBI appears to have grown significantly since 2014 [the last time there was a hearing about the lists in Congress]. This is because of the way these lists are compiled, with people being ‘nominated’ for even remote connection to people deemed of interest, and often with no real way to know who or what organization ‘nominated’ you and no reliable way to get off except through legal action...”

I'm shocked Kathy Griffin was ever taken off of it.

I was on that list during the cheney administration. also got pulled out of the security check in line repeatedly. and on domestic flights. why? I made a ballet about Latin freedom fighters. ridiculous right? I was in good company. Rove put together a list of "artists hostile to the Republican agenda not to be supported by US corporations or their foundations". a lot of famous names on that list. the composer, John Adams, was harassed for years. Luckily for him he had oodles of commissions from European opera companies. So he side-stepped them. I was not so fortunate.

Everyone has a reputation. When government employees, government assets, government informants, government contractors and a Son of a Bush are "disturbed" by reality, aim for the family's reputation.

Life was good (more or less) before September 11, 2001.

Each and every American on a $HIT list should be entitled to their day in court. When dishonorable thieves and liars in government are confronted (and they will be), a true new world order is possible.


"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." --Ephesians 6:12
