Senate Bill 1959 to Criminalize Thoughts, Blogs, Books and Free Speech Across America

Profuse apologies for the two-week gap in posts here at Jefferson Weeps - I imagine that my unindicted co-conspirator RoadPoet-NY was waiting for your humble host to actually post something for a change, yet I so hate bumping his creations further down the page...


This evening's bee in the proverbial bonnet combines two favorite topics for discussion around here... America's steady march toward fascism contrasted with the potential saving grace of the Dennis Kucinich presidential campaign.

Over at, they have a major article bearing the same name as this blog post - Senate Bill 1959 to Criminalize Thoughts, Blogs, Books and Free Speech Across America - which you should definitely take a moment (or two) to read at This bill poses a direct threat to our civil liberties and rights guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution - in other words, a topic that should be of grave concern to all Americans.

Contributor Mike Adams does an excellent job of explaining the provisions of the bill, and why it should matter to your ordinary citizens - plus, he includes a frightening look at the "Ten Steps to Fascism" as explained by author Naomi Wolf in a lecture available on YouTube as well as in her book, The End of America - Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot."

So far, so good... right? A very important article containing very important information and additional reference materials with which to pry open the eyes of the teeming masses, so that they might awaken to the abominations taking place directly under our noses and begin fulfilling their obligations as responsible citizens as opposed to the media-driven role of sheep-like consumers.

Well... It seems that Mr. Adams has been afflicted with a particular type of convenient factual blindness that is endemic amongst the fervent supporters of Republican Texas Representative, Dr. Ron Paul, which leads the supporters to loudly proclaim that the honorable doctor is the one-and-only staunch defender of the U.S. Constitution.

Now, it is completely understandable that in this day and age - where the convenient illusion of a two-party system serves to hide the reality of one single war-party, whose members are bought-and-sold by moneyed interests and beholden to big business, certain foreign governments, and the military-industrial complex - regardless of the letter appearing after their names - it is completely understandable that one might lose sight of the few rare individuals who take their solemn oath to defend the Constitution very seriously. However, is it unreasonable to expect a little homework from members of the Fighting 101st Keyboard Corps, these pontificating pundits, before the bloviating begins in earnest? We here at Jefferson Weeps think not...

It is with this responsibility in mind, to present *all* the facts, not just the "cherry-picked" variety so valued by the current regime in Washington and so eagerly regurgitated by the so-called "mainstream media," that the following letter was written. You see, there is at least one *other* staunch defender of the Constitution currently running for the highest office in the land, and his name is Dennis J. Kucinich. With any luck, Mr. Adams now knows this as well. The text of the letter follows:

Bravo on the article and the link to Naomi's 10 Steps... however, I must call you out on the carpet for an out-and-out falsehood in your article.

When you wrote, "...In terms of the upcoming election for U.S. President, there is only one candidate that actually believes in freedom: Ron Paul. He needs your support to win: ...All the other candidates are nothing more than tyrants of different political affiliations. Ron Paul is the only candidate that truly understands the fundamentals of freedom." you did your readers a MAJOR disservice...

Ron Paul is NOT the only candidate whom actually believes in Freedom... there is one other, and he has been fighting just as long and just as hard to defend our Constitution. His name is Dennis J. Kucinich, the Democratic Representative from Ohio, and excluding Congressman Kucinich from your article makes you guilty of the same tactics that others use to marginalize the campaign of Dr. Paul

I admire Dr. Paul greatly, and believe that his campaign is doing wonders for our political process - however, Congressman Kucinich deserves the same attention and respect - so perhaps the rhetoric could be scaled back a wee bit, eh?

Meanwhile, thanks for your time, your articles, and for alerting the public to this grave danger to our Republic!

In closing, Mike Adams deserves great praise for his attempts to shed some light on Senate Bill 1959, and anyone who reads this article owes it to themselves, their families, and their country to spread the word far and wide in order to defeat this appalling piece of legislation - just do yourselves another favor while you're at it... Remember Dennis Kucinich, and don't let the media pick your candidates!
