Unanimous Supreme Court Backs Whistleblowers over White House Objections

by BAR editor and columnist Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

In an important ruling, the nation’s highest court shot down an Obama administration attempt to shield governments from whistle-blowing employees. Nevertheless, the decision “still sends a chilling message” because it fails to adequately protect whistleblowers’ jobs.

We've Got Their Number: U.S. Discrimination Penalty Bill is $1 Billion and Counting - Part Two

by BAR editor and columnist Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

Rather than crack down on discrimination and illegal retaliation, the U.S. government spends megabucks to silence complaints. “Upwards of $1 billion have been doled out by federal agencies in settlement and judgment costs for discrimination lawsuits since the No FEAR Act went into effect in 2002.” In effect, the Feds are protecting the bad guys. “The sanctions built into the No FEAR Act are not significant enough to affect the widespread discrimination, retaliation or abuse of federal employees.” It’s time for No FEAR II.

U.S. Discrimination Penalty Bill is $1 Billion and Counting: We've Got Their Number

by BAR editor and columnist Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

The U.S. would rather pay victims $1 billion in settlements, than root out racism in the federal government. That’s the first of what will be many revelations to, “an electronic alternative for whistleblowers to disclose information important for public safety without exposing themselves to government reprisals.”

Obama’s “No Tolerance” for Freedom of Speech Policy (or Lament for Sunshine Week)

by BAR editor and columnist Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

President Obama runs the most secrecy-obsessed administration in U.S. history. “The president talks the talk, whistleblowers walk the plank—while the authors, administrators and implementers of torture and felonious activities walk—under the protection of absolute immunity.”

Eyewitness to America’s Betrayal of Mandela’s South Africa: The Gore-Mbeki Commission – Part II

by BAR editor and columnist Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

The author learned first hand how the U.S. collaborated with white Afrikaners in Nelson Mandela’s new government to accept unwanted private sector programs. A Black administration was in place, but the Freedom Charter was a dead letter. “Mandela and his colleagues were aware that moving forward to implement the Charter would be considered an act of aggression against global capital.”

Eyewitness to America Betraying Mandela's South Africa: The Gore - Mbeki Commission

by Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

Nelson Mandela's ANC leadership negotiated the form of the new South Africa on two tracks, the political wrangling in one set of meetings, & the decisions on the nation's economic future separately at another location, headed by Thabo Mbeki. The results were predictable, as Miriam Makeba said: "We got the flag, but they got to keep the money."

What’s a Little Surveillance Among Friends?

by BAR editor and columnist Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

Thanks to Edward Snowden, the world is learning that the United States spies on…everyone. Friends, foes, allies, adversaries, it doesn’t matter – the National Security Agency has your number and isn’t shy about dialing it. Republicans are Obama’s best friends when it comes to mega-surveillance.

EPA Victims Ask: Who Will Protect Us From Our Protectors?

by BAR editor and columnist Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

The public need protection from the Environmental Protection Agency, a “rogue” department of government that ruthlessly suppresses the truth about its actual activities. “The EPA’s Office of General Counsel, Office of Civil Rights and the Office of the Administrator have all been complicit in crimes against the people and environment they are charged with protecting.”

The Black Budget and the Shadow National Security State

by Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

The “Black Budget” isn’t the sole domain of conspiratorialists, anymore. Thanks to Edward Snowden, we now know that the taxpayers dole out $52.6 billion a year to finance the “shadow” government of spies, provocateurs, hit men, human network trackers, drone operators, secret armies and domestic and international destabilization specialists. But the country can’t afford to save Detroit.

“Big Brother” Has Been Watching You… For a Long Time

by BAR editor and columnist Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

With his “Insider Threat Program,” President Obama has linked his legacy with that of J. Edgar Hoover’s crusade “to root out political opponents, smash political opposition, and to quell voices of dissent.” The secret program also “operates in direct contradiction to the 2002 No FEAR Act, the first civil rights and whistleblower law of the 21st century.”

Big Brother: Coming to a Federal Government Agency Near You

by BAR editor and Columnist Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

Under President Obama, five million federal workers are compelled to snitch on each other. Obama’s Insider Threat Program has turned the federal government into an environment where every employee is responsible for ‘turning in’ any co-worker suspected of suspicious behavior, similar to what happened during the Nazi regime.” People with marital or money problems are automatically “suspect.”

RUN SNOWDEN RUN! Dirty Lies, Dirty Wars, Dirty Secrets

by Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo and King Downing

Whistle-blowing can consist of more than simply telling a newspaper about wrongdoing by the State. Edward Snowden, Bradley Manning and Julian Assange join the likes of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X, in opposing the rule of the unjust. “Some whistleblowers survive, others are murdered or imprisoned, but all are eventually destroyed.”

“Hands Off” Edward Snowden and all Whistleblowers, “Hands Off” the Privacy of Americans

by Marsha Coleman-Adebayo and King Downing

Edward Snowden has the nation and the world a great service in revealing the the government’s mega-surveillance of the U.S. public. “The Obama administration should honor, not punish, him or anyone else who has stood up for the Constitution and against corruption.”

Manchester, Texas: Tip of the Environmental Nightmare

by BAR editor and columnist Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

Gina McCarthy, President Obama’s choice as the new administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, should hear the children's voices in Houston’s Manchester community, whose life prospects have been shrunken by environmental racism. “We are being poisoned and we want to know why this is being allowed.”

Whistleblower Bradley Manning Pleads Guilty to Exposing US Atrocities

by Kevin Zeese and Marsha Coleman-Adebayo

Bradley Manning, a prisoner of the U.S. military and the national security state, could serve life in prison for revealing the “true nature of twenty-first century asymmetric warfare.” His crime was to expose the real “purpose, posture and pretenses of the US government around the world.”
