Introduction to the case By Curtis Mullins.
"Ruchell Cinque Magee is the longest held political prisoner in the world, he has been in jail for more than 45 years, his captives hold him in violation of the law and the Constitution.
MP3 DOWNLOAD His is the classic case of fraud and corruption at the highest levels of government, and involves the intelligence community, executive, legislative and judicial branches of Government in a mind boggling conspiracy to hide the truth, and deny him due process and habeas corpus. This false democratic Government has committed fraud to cover up two not guilty verdicts by two different juries in two different trials. Ruchell has been beaten by guards in the Court room in front of a jury, as Judge Herbert V. Walker sat, watched and did nothing. Judge Walker instructed the jury that they had to find Ruchell either guilty or insane; Ruchell called a 'moron' by Federal Judge Sam Conti. Judge Conti created false documents in furtherance of the conspiracy; denied Ruchell self-representation; prevented Ruchell from meeting with the media (international dope dealers are permitted media visits); denied due process and habeas corpus and sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole for crimes he did not commit and was found not guilty of, these are the facts."

Over 1 million undocumented immigrants are said to be lining up to take advantage of the Obama Administration's plan to defer them from deportation and apply for work permits. President Obama ordered ICE to stop deporting young undocumented immigrants brought here as children because "it was the right thing to do".
A month long "Caravan for Peace" kicked off Aug 12th and will be trekking across the United States to bring awareness to the death toll in Mexico which is a result of the long standing Drug policy of the United States. As I have reported, President Obama has no desire to change the policy and has actually expanded it into Africa and has allocated hundreds of millions of dollars in 2013 to build new prisons to incarcerate mostly non-violent drug offenders. Is this the right thing to do?

Wikipedia says "Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz was born August 13, 1926 and Today is his 86th birthday. He is a Cuban Revolutionary and politician. Under his leadership the Republic of Cuba was converted into a one-party socialist state, with industry and business being nationalized under state ownership and socialist reforms implemented in all areas of society.
Mr. Castro became involved in leftist anti-imperialist politics while studying law at the University of Havana. Involving himself in armed rebellions against right-wing governments in the Dominican Republic and Colombia, he concluded that the U.S.-backed Cuban President Fulgencio Batista, who was widely seen as a dictator, had to be overthrown; to this end he led a failed armed attack on the Moncada Barracks in 1953.
After being imprisoned for a year, he traveled to Mexico, and with the aid of his brother Raúl Castro and friend Che Guevara, assembled a group of revolutionaries called the 26th of July Movement.
Returning with them to Cuba, he took a key role in the Cuban Revolution, leading a successful guerrilla war against Batista's forces, overthrowing him in 1959.
