My view on Iran.  I think it's bizarre that Iran should not be able to have the right to it's own sovereignty and should be unable to protect itself from it's neighbors that have nuclear weapons.  Sure in a perfect world no one would have nuclear weapons but the US opened the door to that during WW2 and now they're more likely than not never going to be eliminated.

There's some odd sentiment that if Iran has nuclear weapons that it would then attack other countries, like our beloved Israel which is always threatening it's neighbors and abusing the Palestinians.  I think that it would insure that Israel behaves in a very different way and I really don't see that Iran would ever use such weapons as they would be immediately taken out by nations that have access to nuclear weapons already.

Maybe the deal that needs to be made with Iran is that when Israel de-nukes then Iran would no longer continue it's supposed quest for nuclear weapons.

Senator Casey's View on Iranian Diplomacy:

Dear Mr. Clay:
 
Thank you for taking the time to contact me regarding U.S. policy toward Iran.  I appreciate hearing from you about this issue.
 
The Iranian regime’s longtime pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability threatens our national security, our interests abroad, and our closest allies overseas. In order to protect our national security interests, the United States continues to work with the international community to put pressure on the Iranian regime to abandon its nuclear weapons program, using a variety of diplomatic and economic means.
As your United States Senator, I am committed to ensuring, the Iranian regime does not acquire a nuclear weapons capability. Since coming to the Senate in 2007, I have supported a variety of measures to pressure the regime to respect international nuclear regulations and human rights. For example, I supported the passage of the Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Human Rights Act of 2012, which was signed into law on August 10, 2012.  This legislation closes loopholes in existing sanctions, including targeting companies that provide shipping, insurance and financial services to Iran’s energy sector.  Both the United States and the European Union have imposed sanctions on the Iranian regime, including asset freezes and travel bans.
 
It is clear that these tough sanctions brought the Iranian regime to the negotiating table, which resulted in the first meaningful limits that Iran has agreed to on its nuclear ambitions in almost a decade.  The P5+1 (the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia, and China, facilitated by the European Union) and Iran reached an interim agreement, the Joint Plan of Action, on November 23, 2013. On November 24, 2014 the P5+1 extend the deadline an additional seven months to a target date of March 2015.  During the extension period, Iran will receive sanctions relief pursuant to the Joint Plan of Action.
 
I issued a statement on November 25, 2014 expressing my concern and skepticism of the Iranian regime's intentions as they have negotiated in bad faith before; however, it is in our national security interest for the parties to continue their efforts towards reaching a comprehensive agreement. The Administration should work expeditiously to co nclude negotiations sooner than the allotted time period; the longer we negotiate, the more sanctions relief the Iranian regime enjoys.
 
On December 20, 2013, Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey introduced S.1881, the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act. After carefully and thoroughly considering the terms of the interim agreement and the ongoing negotiations, I became an original cosponsor to this bill, which currently has 59 cosponsors on both sides of the aisle. I will continue to work with Administration officials, outside experts, and my colleagues to ensure that the Iranian regime does not achieve a nuclear weapons capability that could threaten U.S. national security interests.
 
I am also deeply concerned about the Iranian regime’s ongoing human rights abuses, and I have been outspoken about the need for increased U.S. and international attention to this issue.  In 2013, I cosponsored S. Res. 75, condemning the Government of Iran for its state-sponsored persecution of its Baha'i minority and its continued violation of the International Covenants on Human Rights. I will continue to work to increase public awareness of the plight of Iranian activists and others who receive brutal treatment at the hands of the regime.  
 
I am gravely concerned by reports that an American journalist, Jason Rezaian, was detained in Tehran on July 22, 2014 along with his wife and two others. The two others have since been released, however Mr. Rezaian remains in prison. The Iranian government has confirmed their arrest. I have written to Secretary John Kerry urging the State Department to work to secure the release of Mr. Rezaian, and I have called on the Iranian regime to afford Mr. Rezaian due process. While the Iranian regime’s violations of press freedom are well-documented, this move clearly demonstrates that the Iranian regime’s efforts to stifle dissent are not limited to local publications.
The United States has a critical national security interest in denying Iran access to a nuclear weapon, as well as a moral obligation to support the Iranian people. Please be assured that I will continue to monitor the situation in Iran closely, and that I will have your concerns in mind.
   
Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts with me.  Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future about this or any other matter of importance to you.
 
For more information on this or other issues, I encourage you to visit my website, http://casey.senate.gov.  I hope you will find this online office a comprehensive resource to stay up-to-date on my work in Washington, request assistance from my office or share with me your thoughts on the issues that matter most to you and to Pennsylvania.
 
Sincerely,
Bob Casey
United States Senator

#CIAtorture  
The Americans were about to learn a lesson that the British had already learned decades earlier in the Northern Ireland conflict.
In the second half of the 20th Century, Britain's security forces developed what they called the "five techniques": hooding, white noise, a diet of bread and water, sleep deprivation, and being forced to stand in a stress position against a wall for long periods.
We now know that British agents trained officers of Brazil's military dictatorship in these techniques.
The report of Brazil's Truth Commission into the excesses of the dictatorship - published on the same day as the US Senate Intelligence committee's report into the CIA's "detention and interrogation program" - quoted former Brazilian President Ernesto Geisel saying that officers learned from the British secret service. They "practised torture with discretion", he said, while Brazil's "inexperienced staff did it in a more extrovert and open manner".
The British government, like the US until the Obama presidency, has always denied that its techniques, which were still being used in the Northern Ireland conflict in 1971, constituted torture. The European Court of Human Rights also ruled in 1978 that they constituted "inhuman and degrading treatment" rather than torture, though it will soon be asked to reconsider.
Regardless of the label, the brutality of these techniques was widely condemned when details were revealed. The UK's international reputation was tarnished and it lost a good deal of moral authority in its fight against terrorism.
So when the 9/11 and 7/7 attacks took place, British officials did not react by using such techniques on the terrorist suspects they were interrogating. In a communication issued in January 2002, MI5 and MI6 explicitly warned their agents in the field against engaging in torture themselves, not least because they could be prosecuted for doing so, given the prohibition of torture contained in the UK's Human Rights Act, stemming from the European Convention of Human Rights.
Why it's so rare to hear an apology for torture

"Catholic Schools’ Religious Liberty Under Fire in Nation’s Capital (2949):  Their ability to operate themselves, in line with Catholic teaching on sexuality, is coming under increasing pressure there and elsewhere."  (December 2014.)

From the attached article...

-----
WASHINGTON — The Council of the District of Columbia has unanimously passed legislation revoking legal exemptions that protected Catholic schools and universities in the District of Columbia from having to provide recognition, funds and space to student groups engaged in political homosexual advocacy.

The D.C. Council voted 13-0 on Dec. 1 to approve Councilmember Tommy Wells’ amendment to the D.C. Human Rights Act, which repeals a 1989 federal exemption that allowed religiously affiliated organizations to govern themselves along their religious tenets in matters of sexual orientation.

Robert Destro, a law professor and founding director of the Interdisciplinary Program in Law & Religion at The Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law, characterized the move as a “triumph of ideology.” 

“What they are doing is they are basically saying, ‘See, everything has changed now, we’re in charge, we’re going to repeal it, and we’re going to enforce it against all religious institutions,” he said.

But Wells argues the issue at stake is equality, not protection of religious liberty.

“What we’re saying with this bill is that under the Human Rights Act, religious educational institutions owe the same tolerance and acceptance to their students that they enjoy themselves,” Wells told the Register.

The repealed law stated that private religious educational institutions had the ultimate say over the “use of any fund, service, facility, or benefit” or granting of approval or recognition to persons “organized for, or engaged in, promoting, encouraging, or condoning any homosexual act, lifestyle, orientation, or belief.”

Known as the Armstrong Amendment, the exemption addressed a conflict that started in the late 1980s, when Georgetown University refused to recognize or provide space for GU Pride, a student homosexual advocacy group.

Wells alleged the federal amendment was “fundamentally out of order with our values of inclusion and acceptance here in the District.”

“Repealing the Armstrong Amendment is important to everyone in the District of Columbia because we decided long ago that in our community, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is unacceptable,” he added.
 
=== Christian Opposition ===

The D.C. Council’s law was strongly opposed by Catholic and other Christian entities.

Michael Scott, director of the D.C. Catholic Conference, stated in written testimony that government “may not force religious schools into advancing a viewpoint or policy that conflicts with their sincerely held beliefs.”

He noted that CUA, other major universities, and smaller sectarian schools, including 20 Catholic elementary and secondary schools would be affected by the legislation.

“Religiously-affiliated schools are not only obligated by their religion, but also permitted by the Constitution to freely teach and act according to their faith,” he said.

Lawrence Morris, general counsel for CUA, also testified that the university had to have the freedom to determine “which organizations to permit on campus” as part of its fidelity to Catholic teaching.

“We make a statement about ourselves every time that we extend recognition to a student group, so we only sponsor organizations whose overall principles are consistent with the Church’s teaching.”

He noted CUA’s Community Pledge asks students, faculty, and staff to “reject and witness against” the mistreatment of others, including when it involves sexual orientation.

Patrick Reilly, president of the Cardinal Newman Society, told the Register that while the Obama administration is offering a religious exemption (albeit an unsatisfactory one) for the HHS contraception mandate, the D.C. Council has run in the opposite direction.

“This was an action to take away the exemption. This was an action not dealing with the question of whether institutions should be accommodated to preserve religious freedom; this was a deliberate effort to take away the religious freedom that already existed for religious educators,” he said. “That is what I find particularly troubling.”

Wells, however, disagreed that the new law would infringe on religious liberties.

“The Human Rights Act actually takes explicit steps to protect religious liberties in different places (e.g., by requiring employers to accommodate religious observations of employees), but religious freedom does not — and should not — provide a legal shield for our schools to engage in practices that constitute rejection of members of the community because of their sexual orientation.”

The councilmember was not certain whether religious seminaries would fall under the legislation.

“That depends on whether they meet the definition of a ‘religious institution’ in [the D.C. Code],” he said.

  Obama and Holders new Profiling Law has a hidden agenda and guess who is hiding what..?

"It is clear that what is being proposed, it has to be attached to discrimination, harassment and exploitation. These are the three criteria. "

"We, it was inspired by a decision of the Supreme Court of Canada, because ultimately, it is the freedom of expression that is in question. And as human rights commission, freedom of expression is very important, so it should not restrict unduly. But the Supreme Court tells us that in cases of discrimination, harassment or exploitation, we can move forward. It is legitimate and what is legitimate for the provinces to act in that field. "

"There is a recommendation of the United Nations General Assembly, the High Commissioner of the United Nations Human Rights, which is exactly in the same direction. And from what I understand in dispatches in the newspapers, even the Supreme Court of the United States, now when we speak, is ready to challenge for First Amendment when it comes to hate speech.

"In other words, there is a movement across the world is to respond to that hate speech of this kind are not acceptable in any society whatsoever.

"It's when you have about generals, hateful general, incitement to hatred, etc. where there no casualties particularized, the group in general who is a victim - - that's what we aim by this provision.”

The decision of the Supreme Court of Canada

Mr. Frémont refers to the case of William Whatcott (judgment of 27 February 2013), a Christian from Saskatchewan who had distributed pamphlets disparaging homosexuality, and was convicted of incitement to hatred of homosexuals.

Mario Roy had spoken in an editorial in La Presse in 2011, before the Supreme Court rendered its judgment. Roy placed the lawsuit against Whatcott in the context of the arrival in Montreal at the invitation of a Muslim student association at Concordia University, Muslim preachers known for advocating the criminalization of homosexuality.

If the Charter of Rights is changed according to the terms described by Mr. Fremont, homosexuals will be available to the new provisions against this type of preachers and those who invite them (student associations, mosques, etc.). The favorable Islamist censorship could see that this is a double edged sword.

Initiatives to limit freedom of expression are worrying. Islamists seek to roll back the freedoms in the West, and particular freedom of expression, the foundation of democracy. A government that advocates censorship makes them a dangerous concession. In fact, one could almost say that it encourages terrorism, because after two attacks, Quebec wants to limit criticism of Islam. Or if you cannot criticize Islam is that already lives under Sharia law. What is the message? The message is that terrorism is an effective weapon: it pushed back the freedom of expression and advance the Sharia.

If Ottawa gives up his plan to punish advocating terrorism, we risk ending up in an absurd situation: the glorification of terrorism would be legal, but criticism of Islam which terrorists claim may be illegal.

The federal government had a provision similar to the one proposed by the Human Rights Commission, namely Article 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, the person who gave the Canadian Human Rights Commission, investigative powers over "speech hate "online. Ottawa repealed this article, which was misused. These abuses are explained in an editorial in the National Post and a section of Lorne Gunter's Edmonton Sun.

Spying techniques exposed by Snowden not unlawful – UK watchdog

By Michael Holden LONDON Fri Dec 5, 2014 1:10pm GMT Former U.S. NSA contractor Edward Snowden, is shown on a livestream from Moscow, during the Right Livelihood Award ceremony at the second chamber hall at the Swedish Parliament in Stockholm December 1, 2014. Credit: Reuters/Pontus Lundahl /TT News Agency LONDON (Reuters) – British spies did not break laws guaranteeing human rights when they used mass monitoring techniques revealed by former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, the country’s surveillance watchdog ruled on Friday. A host of civil rights groups and privacy campaigners, including Amnesty International and the American Civil Liberties Union, had argued the tactics used by Britain’s three security agencies and disclosed by Snowden to the media last year did not comply with the UK’s Human Rights Act. “The ‘Snowden revelations’ in particular have led to the impression voiced in some quarters that the law in some way permits the Intelligence Services carte blanche to do what they will. We are satisfied that this is not the case,” Britain’s Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT) said in its ruling. Snowden caused an international uproar when he disclosed details of the extent of surveillance and electronic monitoring by the NSA and [...]

Just whom does VSA think they are.

One important purpose of human rights legislation is to protect individuals from being
denied opportunities on the basis of certain personal characteristics known as “prohibited
grounds.”1  Human Rights Act was amended in July 2010 to include
an additional prohibited ground of discrimination known as the “criminal ground.” This new ground
protects persons with a criminal record from being discriminated against by potential or current
employers on the basis of that record. The Act prohibits employers from imposing conditions of
employment, refusing to employ, or otherwise discriminating against an employee because of a
criminal conviction that is unrelated to his or her employment.2 The following information provides
further detail on the intent behind this addition to the Act.
Relevant Provision of the Human Rights Act
s.14(1) An employer, or a person acting on behalf of an employer,
shall not refuse to employ or to continue to employ or otherwise
discriminate against a person in regard to employment or a term or
condition of employment on the basis of a prohibited ground of
discrimination, or because of the conviction for an offence that is
unrelated to the employment of the person.
