STOP Censorship on Blogtalkradio

+BlogTalkRadio, will you allow people to follow my radio shows, please? The following message was relayed by Facebook:

Nancy Lockhart commented on a link you shared.

Thanks for the information, +Nancy Lockhart . I plan to take all of this censorship to the International Court for Human Rights soon. I appreciate my friends and followers at Internet sites sharing with me when they experience difficulty opening urls to my articles, following my blogs and radio shows, and reaching me by telephone (678)531.0262. There has been an effort to isolate me for nearly a decade in order to contain my advocacy for human rights for America's mentally ill people. I feel that people with mental health disabilities are nevertheless entitled to full citizenship rights, and others disagree, particularly prison investors. I am not the only human rights advocate having these censorship issues, but I am America's Most Censored. Please plan to join us at the "OCCUPY Silicon Valley" protest against Internet censorship on April 4, 2014.

The concept of human rights is under attack in the USA.

President Bill Clinton's Executive Order 13107
IMPLEMENTATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS TREATIES ~ By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and bearing in mind the obligations of the United States pursuant to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CAT), the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD), and other relevant treaties concerned with the protection and promotion of human rights to which the United States is now or may become a party in the future, it is hereby ordered as follows: (See the entire EO at the above link.)

Former President Jimmy Carter recently published a scathing op ed criticizing America's standing regarding human rights. The 39th president denounced assassinations of Americans abroad and other developments that challenge Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the U.S. Constitution. A New York Times article called "America's Shameful Human Rights Record" carried Carter's assessment. See an excerpt below:

A CRUEL AND UNUSUAL RECORD - June 24, 2012: The United States is abandoning its role as the global champion of human rights. Revelations that top officials are targeting people to be assassinated abroad, including American citizens, are only the most recent, disturbing proof of how far our nation’s violation of human rights has extended . . . In addition to American citizens’ being targeted for assassination or indefinite detention, recent laws have canceled the restraints in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 to allow UNPRECEDENTED VIOLATIONS OF OUR RIGHTS to privacy through warrantless wiretapping and government mining of our electronic communications. Popular state laws permit detaining individuals because of their appearance, WHERE THEY WORSHIP or with whom they associate. See Carter's oped at the New York Times link 

One Blogtalkradio shows you definitely should not miss+Nancy Lockhart, carries my interview with International Human Rights Attorney Mustafa Ansari. He is a dedicated Human Rights Defender with 20 years proven record of accomplishments in legal education, Human Rights activism, and personnel management. He is Dean of the American Institute of Human Rights, Chief Justice of Indigenous African American Reparations Tribunal-a panel of six international and domestic attorneys. Ansari is Trustee of Bosnian Genocide Victims Trust for the collection and the enforcement of the 7.8 Billion dollar Human Rights Judgments as a result of the Bosnian Genocide. He addressed the audience at "HUMAN RIGHTS FOR PRISONERS MARCH" on +BlogTalkRadio at 9pm PST, February 3, 2014. He told us about how we can use EO 13107 on behalf of people we advocate for, since civil and human rights are so often ignored in U.S. courts. Listen to the dialog at the url below, IF they let you:

I would appreciate your also listening to a distressful update on the case of Shannon Nyamodi, the 19-year-old black youth who is wrongly arrested in Franklin County, North Carolina for a crime that even the victim testified he did not do. Nyamodi is being tortured with solitary confinement to force him to plea bargain and save the prosecutor from going before a jury with a case he cannot hope to win. Apparently, the State intends to continue holding Nyamodi in indefinite detention until he capitulates and accepts a plea deal, just as Pennsylvania did to Terrell Scott last week. Terrell had been denied trial for nearly five years before he gave up. Nyamodi has been held without trial for 16 months. The interview with Shannon Nyamodi's mother, Elizabeth Crudup, should be available at this url  ~Tortures, false arrests, and lynchings are not Black history. These are 21st century problems. If mainstream media would join the call for Shannon's Sixth Amendment rights to an open and speedy trial and representation by an attorney, things might be different today. Instead, we justice advocates use the Internet. That is why it is so important to prevent advocates' voices from being silenced by Internet censorship. It is a battle we cannot afford to lose, particularly African Americans. 

Happy Black History Month 2014!
The struggle continues, and defeat is not an option.

BLOG TALK RADIO'S ATTACK ON FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND THE CENSORSHIP, OF MY HUMAN RIGHTS SHOW, ON BLOG TALK RADIO, that has been exposing the human rights abuse of the Canadian government. My show, on Blog Talk Radio, which is an offshoot of my blog, called, "Canada Human Rights Abuse is Exposed. The Truth is Revealed", has been censored and also sabotaged by Blog Talk Radio. My most recent show's content, on Torture, was over ridden by Blog Talk Radio, with some other crap, it has pulled off of Google. HOW CAN BLOG TALK RADIO, CENSOR A HUMAN RIGHTS SHOW, LIKE IT HAS DONE TO MINE?
It is all about human rights, for god's sake. Talk about being blacklisted!.
