Daisy Bram and Jayme Walsh were living their California Dream. They had moved from Iowa to a rural mountain town in northern California where they began to home-birth and raise three children, to grow their own food and medical marijuana, and to integrate themselves into the mostly farming community where Daisy works as a midwife. Then came police raids into their home to seize their children, to put the husband in prison, with Daisy, the mother of three, currently out on bail and speaking out in their defense. Now the three children, Zeus, Thor, and Invictus are under the control and supervision of the Child Protective Services. The seizure of her car has left the young and vibrant mother of three stranded in a rural community with no transportation while facing charges of child endangerment. Fortunately, Daisy has a good lawyer named Michael Levinson working pro-bono on her behalf. There is also a growing community of support around this family's case and a legal defense fund has been established. See GreenAid - Daisy Bram Legal Defense Fund. This is her heart-breaking story. Be sure to watch the video at bottom to hear her tell her story in her own words.
From Reason.com: "In 2011, Daisy Bram and Jayme Walsh lived with their two small children, Thor and Zeus, in Butte County, California. Like so many other people in northern California, Bram and Walsh had medical marijuana recommendations and a small cannabis garden in their back yard. In September, their home was raided by Butte County sheriffs. Bram and Walsh were charged with cultivation of marijuana, possession with intent to sell, and child endangerment. Thor and Zeus were taken by Child Protective Services and placed in foster care for four months. A year later, Bram gave birth to their third son, Invictus. With their Butte County cases still unresolved, Bram and Walsh decided to move their family to neighboring Tehama County. In January of 2013, Tehama County sheriffs raided Bram and Walsh's new home. This time they found a cannabis garden in a locked room off the back of the house. Child Protective Services once again seized Bram and Walsh's children and placed them in foster care, where they remain to this day. On January 30, Tehama County officers seized Bram's car. Walsh is currently in jail with bail set at one million dollars. Bram is out on bail awaiting future court dates. "There is nothing worse that someone can be accused of than doing something to harm their own children. If someone from the government is going to come after someone and make that accusation, they better have the ammunition ready to go," said Michael Levinsohn, Daisy Bram's attorney."
Parents, Pot, and Prohibition: California CPS Stole Daisy Bram's Children Because She Was Legally Growing Medical Marijuana 5-16-13 in OilFreeFun.com - "Daisy Bram has had her three young children taken from her, her husband locked up, and even her vehicle confiscated for growing marijuana "legally" in Northern California. This is the human cost of the for-profit "war on drugs", the for-profit prisons, the for-profit police state, and for-profit pharmaceutical lobbyists screwing up sane governance. Hopefully this heart-wrenching story turns the tide away from institutional insanity and towards freedom of medical choice."

Daisy Bram (2011-present, Butte County and Tehama County, CA) posted Jan 30, 2013, 11:43 PM by The Editor [ updated Mar 17, 2013, 9:06 PM ] “As of February 2013, Daisy Bram's children, all of whom are younger than three, have been removed from their mother's care and placed in the foster care system by Tehama County, CA authorities. She is in URGENT NEED of a family law attorney, child custody expert, advocate, or community leader near Tehama County to assist in regaining custody of her children (contact The Human Solution). Supporters are encouraged to donate to Daisy's legal defense fund through Green Aid. (Active links at the article site!) Daisy Bram and Jayme Walsh no longer enjoy a quiet life off the grid in rural northern California with their three children, living by the motto "Live simply so others can simply live." Like other residents of remote Concow, CA (near Oroville in unincorporated Butte County), Daisy and Jayme produced their own food and traded the bounty of their organic garden with other locals. Daisy Bram, a midwife who delivered her two youngest children at home, delivered another mother's baby into this world in January 2012, but her own three babies no longer live in her healthy, loving home. The children have been medicated against Daisy's will while in foster care and her newborn was switched to a formula diet in direct opposition to all of Daisy's natural spiritual motherhood ideals and practices.” Read more at:

Truth Troubadour Blog: Questions about the Death and Dumping at Sea of Os...: Questions remain unanswered about the execution of former CIA operative Osama bin Laden (aka Tim Osman) in May 2011 that was reported by President Obama. What about numerous previous reports of bin Laden's death due to kidney failure? Without documentation are people simply expected to believe what they are told as if their are no hidden agendas and apparent consequences. Various information links offered!

Osama bin Laden: Dead or Alive?
If he is dead, when did he die?
If he is dead, when did he die?
Was he really the "mastermind of 9/11", or not?
How can we know the truth?
One thing we know is that Osama bin Laden was a CIA asset used to recruit Muslim fundamentalists to fight the Russians in Afghanistan. What else do we know for sure? Why would Obama claim to have ordered a kill on Osama, and then dispose of his body at sea? Does that sound like the American way of justice?
Dr. David Ray Griffin published “Osama bin Laden Dead or Alive” in 2009. It's a good read today! Evidence of fraud is abundant. The questions he raises need to be answered. http://noliesradio.org/archives/3230
The Corporate media spin machine has cranked out an avalanche of "reports" on the "daring" execution of a supposedly-alive Osama bin Laden hiding in a “million dollar mansion” in Pakistan. The story of the amazing commando raid may end up being another high-tech production from the same folks who brought us the lies about Pat Tillman, Jessica Lynch, & WMD in Iraq. In the case of Pat Tillman, the "official glory story" was that he got killed in a shoot out with the Taliban. Later, as the Tillman family bravely pressed on and on for the truth, the story was amended to be "friendly fire". Then the military coroner report revealed that the evidence showed that Pat Tillman was shot "by 3 bullets to the forehead at 10 yards range". Ignored AP story:
In the case of Jessica Lynch, she refused to go along with the "official glory story". She testified to Congress that she was wounded by an explosion, not in a firefight. Iraqi hospital authorities informed the US military that she was alive and well and under their care. But the Pentagon sent a commando unit in there to "rescue the heroic soldier". Was the truth less important than having a recruitment poster boy and girl to use to lie to young people about corporate resource & domination wars?
In the aftermath of 9/11, we were all in "shock & awe" as the media reported “explosions” at the WTC (World Trade Center) and the Pentagon. This was rapidly revised to the "official story" that the jet fuel from the planes that hit the two tallest towers of the WTC complex "melted the steel" and caused their collapse. It's against the laws of physics! Both Dan Rather and Peter Jennings mused aloud as it was happening that the only way that steel frame buildings could be brought down by fire would be to "get at the inner structures" as in a "demolition". What's worse, the WTC buildings did not just collapse. They disintegrated to dust in 10 seconds! Building 7, which was not hit by a plane, did so in 7 seconds at around 5:30 that evening. In fact, on Sept 10, 2001 Dan Rather reported on CBS that Osama bin Laden was in a Pakistani military hospital getting dialysis treatments for kidney failure. Read about that here: http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO311A.html
In spite of the lack of any evidence to prove that bin Laden was the man whose body was killed in Pakistan and dumped into the ocean, we are simply being intellectually bullied by authority to accept their story as true. We have a media so consolidated and conscripted into service to the secret security state that they just repeat what they are told to us so that they can keep their jobs. No wonder people call them “presstitutes” doing fake journalism for money.
Now we have a new Hollywood movie called "Zero Dark Thirty" that was done in secret complicity with the CIA and the Orwellian-named fascist sounding Homeland Security apparatus to deliver a movie that falsely claims that torture works and was necessary. The 9/11 Commission had no access to CIA prisoners but they accepted and used confessions wrought through torture as if they were reliable evidence gained from good detective work. The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) not only authorized 622 billion dollars for the Pentagon, the bill passed the U.S. House on Dec. 14, 2011, the U.S. Senate on Dec. 15, 2011, and was signed into United States law on December 31, 2011 by President Barack Obama while most Americans were celebrating the New Year and he signed similar repressive legislation on New Year's Eve 2012 as well. These NDAA bills include a clause that legalizes the dissemination of propaganda to US citizens. With executive claims to the power to indefinitely detain and disappear anyone it deems a “suspect” without judicial due process as the Constitution clearly requires, we have treasonous criminal and immoral conduct declared acceptable.
Those who question the 9/11 story and the rewarding of those who failed to defend us on that day, what hit the Pentagon or how that could even happen after the New York attacks, why and how three World Trade Center buildings could disintegrate to toxic dusk and rubble in 10 seconds, the WMD lies about Iraq, the lack of accountability for torture and murder in secret prisons, the prosecution and punishment of whistle-blowers instead of the criminals they expose, the incredibly lethal firepower unleashed on Libya without Congressional authorization, and the need for evidence and transparency about major events and policies to have an informed electorate and a functioning democracy, the challenge is frightening and intimidating. But as any American who has taken an oath “to honor and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies both foreign and domestic” will tell you, it does not have to continue to go down this way. The US does not have to descend into a fascist police state or global corporate empire. We have a right to question and we will continue to do so.
Movies like "Zero Dark Thirty" turn our political culture into a stinking cesspool. The reader is referred to this excellent critique in Global Research on 2-25-13 by London-based writer Patrick Henningsen,“Hollywood History: CIA Sponsored “Zero Dark Thirty”, Oscar for “Best Propaganda Picture”. Henningsen asks, “Was bin Laden really killed by Seal Team 6 that day? Examine the evidence, if you can find any.” In mock sympathy, Henningsen says, “I felt sorry for the director, the cast and all the production crew who put in their hard work and sweat, and probably believed that bin Laden was indeed in the Abbotabad compound in May 2011, and that they were reenacting a rare and proud piece of American history. In order to believe this, they would also would have to have believed that somehow, that same bin Laden also masterminded a multi-pronged assault that managed to bypass the whole of the US Defense apparatus – all from his legendary cave in Tora Bora. It’s no surprise how much both the Bush and Obama governments and the corporate military industrial complex has benefited from maintaining the mythology of a living Osama bin Laden since 2001. Unfortunately, the mythology does not measure up to reality, with multiple admissions in public by heads of state, by Pervez Musharraf, and Benazir Bhutto, as well as by Madeline Albright and others, and even mainstream media reports going all the way back to 2001, stating that Osama bin Laden was dying, or had in fact died in late 2001. Knowing all this, when I heard the news of Obama and the Navy Seal Team 6 raid on bin Laden, I knew immediately that not only was this almost certainly a fiction, but that there would be no photographs and videos released, because a dead man cannot come back to life after 10 years for a photo session. As predicted, a few days later the White House confirmed my suspicions, announcing that indeed, ‘no photos or video will be released’… On top of that, we were also told that they dumped bin Laden’s body at sea 48 hours after allegedly killing him. Fancy that? But even that pillar of the official story fell apart later when it was revealed that no US sailors aboard the USS Carl Vinson ever saw the alleged burial at sea, and that no images exist in any government records of bin Laden aboard the decorated US sea vessel.”
With all of this heavy information, I would recommend a good laugh at it all as well. This Joy Camp Channel video spoof at YouTube is just what the doctor ordered!Kevin Ryan, who worked for the company, Underwriters Laboratories Inc, that certified the steel in the WTC, lost his job when he raised questions about the government's NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) report that claimed there were no explosions (irregardless of what thousands of witnesses, fire and rescue workers, and independent scientists said), and that office fires for the first time in history brought down steel-frame buildings. He worked with a team of scientists associated with “Scholars for 9/11 Truth” to examine dust from the WTC. They published a scientific “peer review” paper that was completely ignored by the corporate media because it showed photos of microscopic particles that indicate that "nano thermate" was used in the demolition.

A team of scientists and engineers published a for-peer-review paper in the Open Chemical Physics Journal: Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe by Niels H. Harrit, Jeffrey Farrer, Steven E. Jones, Kevin R. Ryan, Frank M. Legge, Daniel Farnsworth, Gregg Roberts, James R. Gourley, and Bradley R. Larsen. Read about the peer review paper here at: http://www.ae911truth.org/en/news-section/41-articles/351-advanced-pyrotechnic-or-explosive-material-discovered-in-wtc-dust.html
Thermite is used in industrial demolitions. Adding sulfur makes it Thermate, which can melt steel. But only the US and some allied militaries would have access to "nano thermate". If you are asking yourself how "Muslim terrorists" could get access to the 3 WTC buildings to destroy them by demolition, that is a legitimate question. It also leads to the possibility that others would more likely have such access. Kevin Ryan recently wrote an article on the question of access to the WTC.

Bush and Cheney resisted having a Commission set up to investigate the events of 9/11 for almost two years. Only when victim family members, particularly a group known as "The Jersey Girls", pressed on for the truth, did they create a commission. Bush named National Security Director Condoleezza Rice's assistant, Philip Zelikow, to be Executive Director. A cover-up was predictable. Watch the movie about “The Jersey Girls”, "9/11: Press for Truth", & discuss it with friends & family: http://youtu.be/iMT2CHSvyGw
David Ray Griffin spent most of his life as a professor of theology. But once he began to investigate 9/11 he produced many good books on the subject and he has spoken all over the world about it. The "official story" was very useful propaganda in support of wars and repressive laws, which violate the Constitution. They are bad for Americans and even worse for the corporate empire's victims. This "Guns & Butter interview with Dr. David Ray Griffin: Osama Bin Laden Dead of Alive?" by Bonnie Faulkner on KPFA about his book "Osama Bin Laden Dead of Alive" was originally broadcast in 2009. It was especially timely to re-broadcast this on May 2, 2011, a day after President Obama made a speech stating that he ordered a special ops unit into Pakistan to execute Osama bin Laden and to dump the body into the ocean. The President claimed he gave the order to dump the body of Osama bin Laden into the ocean out of respect for Muslim practice. Is such an act not closer to Mafia practice than Muslim practice? It certainly makes it impossible to verify that bin Laden was the one killed and that that was his body that they dumped at sea! DNA could have been acquired long ago during one of bin Laden's hospital visits for kidney failure.

Syrian Girl breaks down what is really happening with the latest US NATO & Arab Monarchist Dictatorship military intervention, which is very similar to the Libyan hit job where Qatar's Al Jazeera led the progaganda charge. The Qatari and Saudi air forces participated in the humanitarian bombing of Libya's first-world first class infrastructure. Many targets would be war crimes in a civilized world. Qatar also got to front, at least for a while, as the broker for “liberated” Libyan oil. Then came the blowback of the eerily Gadaffi-like street killing of the US ambassador to “Liberated Libya”. What reward is this for all his good work in weapons dealing? Zionist Apartheid Israel is deep into this Syria operation. But as Syrian Girl says, Israel may get to experience how horrifying war is right in Israel itself if NATO pushes this to a full scale war. Russia may not want to lose it's only port in the area and Iran may not want to lose it's long time ally, Syria. War will not seem so “profitable” if it goes global! Who are the puppeteer masters of Obama, Biden, Susan Rice, and Hilary Clinton that drive them to serve this war waging madness? Interview here at this link:

9/11: EXPLOSIVE EVIDENCE - EXPERTS SPEAK OUT
AE911Truth.org presents the verifiable forensic and scientific evidence and leaves the conspiracy questions to the American citizens to debate. At this time over 1,700 Architects & Engineers have decided to risk their lives, reputations and careers to present the facts that they discovered by their scientific investigation. It destroys the faith-in-authority based official "conspiracy" story about 19 Muslims being directed from a cave in Afghanistan by a known CIA asset in need of regular dialysis treatment for kidney disease, yet devastatingly defeating the most sophisticated intelligence and defense capabilities in the world for which no US official who "failed" was punished, demoted, prosecuted, or even reprimanded, but only promoted and rewarded in the aftermath of the tragedy. Indeed!
The NEW QUESTION about 9/11 becomes this: If military grade nanothermite has been proven to be in samples of the dust from the World Trade Center rubble as presented for scientific peer review in "The Open Chemical Physics Journal" in 2009, which is available on line, and as it thereby exposes the lies and the impossibility of 110 story steel frame buildings disintegrating due to fires, then who had the means, motive, and opportunity to place the nanothermate in the three buildings that imploded? Building #7 was not hit by a plane, and yet it went down in less than 7 seconds with Dan Rather calling it a "controlled demolition while showing a video on live TV showing Building #7 exploding, disitntegrating, and symetrically collapsing at near free fall speed amid vast pryroplastic clouds of toxic dust. Owner Larry Silverstein later said on a national TV show that he conferred with the fire chief to "pull it"! Yet NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) claims all three buildings came down in total collapses due to fires, a first in the entire history of steel frame buildings. We were asked to suspend the laws of physics three times in one day and asked to accept the official conspiracy story based on faith in the authorities spinning the story. Muslim patsies are unlikely to have had such access to the World Trade Center.
Instead of 9/11 being a cause celebre for revenge and an endless "war on terror", along with the alleged necessity for us to give up the Bill of Rights and habeas corpus, 9/11 goes back to being a major murder crime scene in need of a truthful and trustworthy investigation. 9/11 returns to the original questions related to finding out who was involved and who knowingly helped to cover it up. That would be a paradigm shift in people's perspective, and it would re-frame that historical moment and take away it's use as the justification for the terrible wars and trashing of rights that GW Bush and Obama have used it for, now wouldn't it?
