On January 06, 2009 House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) introduced H.R. 104, a bill to establish a National Commission on Presidential War Powers and Civil Liberties. The resolution will establish a Blue Ribbon Commission comprised of experts outside government service to investigate the broad range of policies of the Bush administration that were undertaken by the Bush administration under claims of unreviewable war powers.

Re: H.R. 5056
It is important to have diplomatic relations with Iran but the persecution of the Bahá’ís needs to addressed up front and resolved. Iran is practicing segregation or apartheid but unlike most forms of segregation or apartheid the Bahá’ís don’t just have unequal rights they don’t have any rights at all.

Here is a quote from the attached linked article.

“While the Baha’i faith, founded on notions of equality and humanitarianism, originated in what would become the Islamic Republic of Iran, members of the religious community have faced persecution since the republic’s establishment under the Islamic constitution of 1979.
According to the Iranian government, the Baha’i population represents a political sect, not a religious community, and is consequently regarded as apostate. Although the rights of certain minority groups, such as Christians and Zoroastrians, are explicitly protected under the constitution of the Islamic republic, the Baha’i population, estimated by the U.S. Department of State to be approximately 300,000-350,000 of the majority Muslim population, enjoys no rights.
The unprotected status of the Bahá’ís facilitates discrimination without justification within the Iranian legal system. Courts in Iran have denied Bahá’ís the right of redress or protection against assault, killings, or other forms of persecution. These courts have established that Iranian citizens who kill or injure Bahá’ís are not liable for damages because their victims are “unprotected infidels”

JUDICIAL INJUSTICES BEING INFLICTED ON POORER AMERICANS NEEDS….C*H*A*N*G*E…..

SENATOR OBAMA, PLEASE LET THE AMERICAN VOTERS AND THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY KNOW YOUR FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS ABOUT A NEEDED FUTURE REPAIR AND RENOVATION OF A BROKEN US JUDICIAL SYSTEM THAT CONTINUES TO ALLOW THE EXECUTION’S OF EVEN POSSIBLE INNOCENT AMERICAN’S LIKE TROY DAVIS OF GEORGIA ?

BEING THE WEALTHIEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD SENATOR OBAMA, DON’T WE NEED AS THE LEADERS OF THE FREE WORLD TO BEGIN ONCE AGAIN TO RE-INVEST THE PROPER MONIE$ IN OUR OWN US JUDICIAL SYSTEM, ASSURING ALL OF OUR CITIZENS THEIR RIGHTS TO FAIR TRIALS WITH PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION ???

DOES GOD NEED TO LOBBY OUR US CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS OF THE FREE WORLD ON BEHALF OF OUR poorer american’s SENATOR OBAMA,OR ARE YOU WATCHING OUT FOR THEM ?? ***OUR US CONGRESS CONTINUES TO DENY MIDDLE CLASS AND WORKING POOR AMERICANS PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION EVEN THOUGH WRONGFUL EXECUTIONS & FALSE INCARCERATIONS CONTINUE ALL ACROSS AMERICA ???

  • 700 BILLION $$$ AVAILABLE FOR US BAILOUT, & NO $$$ FOR ALL POORER AMERICANS PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION ?
    SENATOR OBAMA, THIS JUDICIAL INJUSTICE HAS BECOME AN AMERICAN ART FORM, AND NO LONGER CAN BE KEPT HIDDEN OR SECRET FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE EVEN IF CERTAIN (501c3) U$ RELIGIOU$ LEADER$ HAVE BEEN $ILENCED ??

LETS ALL HOPE OUR MEDIA FRIENDS CONTINUE TO SHOW AN INTEREST IN REPORTING ON THIS AMERICAN HORROR FACING THESE (TENS OF THOUSANDS) FORGOTTEN AND TRAPPED POORER AMERICANS, AND HOW THIS PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDER HANDLES THIS VERY SERIOUS ISSUE FACING AMERICA’S LATINO AND BLACK AMERICAN COMMUNITIES ????

WITH 80% OF THE BLACK AMERICAN VOTERS SAYING THEY SUPPORT SENATOR OBAMA IN THIS PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, IT IS ONLY FAIR FOR EVERYONE TO KNOW PRIOR BEING ELECTED OUR NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HOW THIS DEMOCRATIC SENATOR TRULY FEELS ABOUT THIS AMERICAN JUDICIAL INJUSTICE CONTINUING TO INFLICT GRAVE HARM ON THE BLACK & LATINO AMERICAN FAMILIES AND THEIR COMMUNITIES NATIONWIDE ??

  • WHEN GOD’S FACE BECAME VERY RED * THE US SUPREME COURT GAVE ENEMY COMBATANTS FEDERAL APPEAL HC RIGHTS LAWYERS AND PROPER ACCESS TO US FEDERAL COURTS,AND POORER AMERICANS (MANY EVEN ON DEATH ROW) ARE DENIED PROPER FEDERAL APPEAL LEGAL REPRESENTATION TO OUR US FEDERAL COURTS OF APPEAL, AND ROTTING IN AMERICAN PRISONS NATIONWIDE ?????
  • INNOCENT AMERICANS ARE DENIED REAL HC RIGHTS WITH THEIR FEDERAL APPEALS ! THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE $LOWLY FINDING OUT HOW EA$Y IT I$ FOR MIDDLE CLA$$ AND WORKING POOR AMERICAN$ TO FALL VICTIM TO OUR U$ MONETARY JUDICIAL $Y$TEM.

WHEN THE US INNOCENT WERE ABANDONED BY THE GUILTY **** The prison experts have reported that there are 100,000 innocent Americans currently being falsely imprisoned along with the 2,300,000 total US prison population nationwide.

WHERE ARE AMERICA’S RELIGIOUS LEADERS ???
Since our US Congress has never afforded poor prison inmates federal appeal legal counsel for their federal retrials,they have effectively closed the doors on these tens of thousands of innocent citizens ever being capable of possibly exonerating themselves to regain their freedom through being granted new retrials.

This same exact unjust situation was happening in our Southern States when poor and mostly uneducated Black Americans were being falsely imprisoned for endless decades without the needed educational skills to properly submit their own written federal trial appeals.

This devious and deceptive judicial process of making our poor and innocent prison inmates formulate and write their own federal appeal legal cases for possible retrials on their state criminal cases,is still in effect today even though everyone in our US judicial system knows that without proper legal representation, these tens of thousands of innocent prison inmates will be denied their rightful opportunities of ever being granted new trials from our federal appeal judges!!

Sadly, the true US legal Federal Appeal situation that occurs when any of our uneducated American prison inmates are forced to attempt to submit their own written Federal Appeals (from our prisons nationwide) without the assistance of proper legal counsel, is that they all are in reality being denied their legitimate rights for Habeas Corpus with our US FEDERAL COURTS and will win any future Supreme Court Case concerning this injustice!

For our judicial system and our US Congressional Leaders Of The Free World to continue to pretend that this is a real and fair opportunity for our American Middle Class and Working Poor Citizens, only delays the very needed future change of Federal Financing of all these Federal appeals becoming a normal formula of Our American judicial system.

It was not so very long ago that Public Defenders became a Reality in this country.Prior that legal reality taking place, their were also some who thought giving anyone charged with a crime a free lawyer was a waste of taxpayers $$.

This FACADE and HORROR of our Federal Appeal proce$$ is not worthy of the Greatest Country In The World! ***GREAT SOCIETIES THAT DO NOT PROTECT EVEN THEIR INNOCENT, BECOME THE GUILTY !

A MUST READ ABOUT AMERICAN INJUSTICE:
1) YAHOO 2) GOOGLE MANNY GONZALES THE KID THAT EVERYONE FORGOT IN THE CA PRISON SYSTEM.

  • A JUDICIAL RIDE OF ONES LIFE !

Someone please tell our US Congress that the GED degree that Manny Gonzales acquired in prison is not a LAW DEGREE !!!!!!

I am a die hard democrat and have always been a fan of Rep. Conyers, but I am appalled that you are a sponsor to H.R. 6845. You have obviously sold out to the publishing industry lobby. Tax payer supported research should be open for all tax payers to read and this bill will effectively reverse the NIH open access policy. Shame on you for being gullible enough to believe the publishing industry’s scam, for they are the ones who command authors turn over their copyright in order to get an article published. You should really take the time to talk to some researchers and not rely upon the publishing industry for your information.

One who betrays another’s trust or is false to an obligation or duty ~ The time has come in American when those, in service, stop making a living off of those that work. Time to find a real job.

Bill HR40 is a black racist bill.Pay the whites who died to free blacks or we forgot that.

Thank you for voting with the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Back to Work Budget—a detailed plan to create nearly 7 million jobs while bringing down the deficit by $4.4 trillion over a decade. And it does this the right way with higher taxes on the wealthiest (including a 49 percent rate on incomes over a billion dollars); a financial transaction tax that would discourage reckless speculation; an end to tax advantages for outsourcers & corporate jets; an environmental saving carbon tax; a public option for health insurance better than Obamacare; sensible military cuts; & investment in infrastructure, school construction, child care, & putting teachers & firefighters back to work. Keep up the good work!

HR 40 is a racist Bill. Don’t we already give out free housing,food stamps, etc… I feel the “blackman” is keeping the white man down. I’m a slave to my job so my tax dollars can pay for there butts. You want real “CHANGE” in America? How about doing away with Affirmative action and start giving jobs to the most qualified person and not base it on skin color that’s “CHANGE”. What happened a century ago shouldn’t effect things now. If that’s the case I want England to pay me back for all the hardships my for-fathers had to endure building this great American country…No one’s ever given me jack, I’ve worked very hard to have what I have. I dont like giving someone something for nothing. Time to stop living in the past…If you don’t like living here you can leave. Get over it or get out!

Hey John.
What’s this stuff about “the powers that be?” You are supposed to be investigating ACORN, now, “the powers that be” tell you otherwise?
For your information, WE THE PEOPLE are the POWERS THAT BE !!!
I realize that ACORN gave you a 100% rating, but you don’t work for ACORN !!! You are HIRED BY US TO REPRESENT US !!!
I also realize that Obama was one of their lawyers, but GUESS WHAT?
Some of the people( not me ) elected him to run the country.
I also realize that he was “backed” by Warren Buffet.
Question. Is he “Buffets puppet”?
I also recognize some of the “SOCIALIST” agenda.
Is that why he is a “flip flopper”? You know, says one thing one day, then the next day recants or does the opposite.
Question. Who exactly are “the powers that be”?
WE THE PEOPLE are thoroughly disgusted with what’s going on in D.C.
You can and WILL be replaced. ALL OF YOU!!!
