In the wake of appalling reports that President Obama has created an official “kill list,” a new petition asks the White House to create a “Do Not Kill” list so that American citizens can sign up and "avoid being executed without indictment, judge, jury, trial or due process of law." When it reaches 25,000, the White House has to respond. And thus, presumably, possibly, acknowledge the existence of the list. More and more on what Glenn Greenwald calls "once unthinkable government claims," now normalized.
Do Not Kill, Please
FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
