Do you believe America is still the Land of the Free or are we in the throes of an uncivil, lawless society?
Who are the real terrorists? Is it the Chinese, the Germans, the Russians, the Taliban, Iran, the Congo, ad infinitum and do the readers of this piece personally fear any of the above or others?
The foundation for the “American Dream” (freedom) lies in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Of particular interest here is the Constitution and Amendments 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 14, 15 & 16 which have all been rendered toothless by past & present congressional & presidential administrations.
The conduct of American government will be judged on how well or not the aforementioned Constitution & Amendments are followed and enforced or will it & they continue to lie fallow?
The Legislative, Judicial and Executive swear under oath to protect what the above documents guarantee &demand. Why are they not upholding their sworn constitutional duties?
To cite ALL lawlessness occurring in the U.S. at this time by the various divisions of the federal government is impossible in a limited treatise; however a few examples vividly point out the dire straits in which American citizens find themselves. Some understand, most do not.
A. Legislative—The House of Representatives & Senate
Legislative: One has to go no further than the U.S. Congress to make a number of determinations and assessments.
Unfortunately, the two political parties that represent American citizens involvement in government, the Democrat & Republican parties have ensnared citizens, producing a mindset they must vote for one or the other, this coupled with the fact citizens continue to reelect for decades the same corrupt and woefully inept legislators, based solely on political party with the impact of suppressing old concepts & new ideas that are the foundation of all progress…socially & technologically. Arkansas is a classic example: the Pryor family (now Senator Mark Pryor) has been in the forefront of Democrat party politics for over 60 continuous years…3 generations, absent meritorious legislative accomplishments. Senator John Boozman, 14 years in the trough and as is the case with Sen. Pryor, completely devoid of Constitutional and political courage—a legislative bust, while both are adroit political followers, i.e. “yes men”. Arkansas’ 4 congressmen are not worthy of mention. Scan the individual states and it becomes evident that Arkansas, unfortunately, is a mirror image of the U.S. political environment.
A congressional & senatorial legislative summary circa 2001 & forward demonstrates the unconstitutional and criminal acts performed by both Parties.
I. The Patriot Acts. The passage & re-passage of the Patriot Acts destroy the 4th (the right of persons to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, etc.) & 10th (power not delegated to the federal gov’t) Amendments. Also contained in the Patriot Acts is language providing for rendition, i.e. torture. Only 3 congressmen voted against its initial passage. Arkansas’ 4 congressmen voted FOR the constitutional-killing act. Another provision in the Patriot Act produced THE NATIONAL SECURITY LETTER which radically expanded the FBI’s authority to demand personal customer records from internet service providers, financial institutions and credit companies without prior court approval.
II. The Military Commissions Act. The act denies the Writ of Habeas Corpus (the right of trial), and neuters Posse Comitatus (which formerly prevented the National Guard & U.S. Military from being used in any domestic unrest). The Military Commissions Act is known as “the Torture authorization act”. The signing of this act terminated civilized behavior in our once preeminent society. The signing of the act ended all Constitutional & Bill of Rights citizen protection. Presidents may arbitrarily designate anyone as an “enemy of state”. President Bush’s reign of terror began with the invasion of Iraq built on lies and more lies undergirded by Israel’s political threats, influence and geo-political positions. Obama duplicates Bush’s actions while expanding the reign of terror. Article 1, Section 9 of the Constitution states “The privilege of a Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of REBELLION or INVASION the public’s SAFETY may require it”.
III. HR 1955—The Violent Radicalization & Homegrown Terrorism Act 2007. HR 1955 specifically targets the population of the U.S. The Act literally allows government to define any and all crime, including “thought crimes” as Violent Radicalization & Homegrown Terrorism. TODAY NO AMERICAN HAS ANY RIGHTS IF HE OR SHE IS ACCUSED OF TERRORIST ACTIVITY AS DEFINED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
IV. The National Defense Authorization Act. The Act does not protect the people but allows government to use its military might, the CIA, the FBI, etc. against the people if those in government “feel threatened”. Deadly force is the prescribed therapy. Specifically, NDAA empowers the president to detain “terror” suspects indefinitely without trial or counsel and no responsibility for making this criminal act public.
V. HR 658 calls for 30,000 drones to overfly the U.S. for surveillance purposes, not for Americans safety. Drones have removed all vestiges of privacy & freedom. 30,000 drones factor out to be 600 per state at any one time. Drones murder surgically without feelings, remorse, pain or blame. HR 658 is the most heinous unforgiving Act against the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, freedom and privacy in the history of mankind. THE MOST CHILLING EFFECT OF HR 658 IS THAT MOST AMERICANS HAVE NOT RAISED ONE SHRED OF CONCERN REGARDING THE DEPLOYMENT OF DRONES WHILE THE ARKANSAS SIX ALL VOTED FOR THE MURDERING PROCESS. Be aware that local police departments are buying drones to fortify their already militarily-esque armamentariums. Their allegiance is to whom? The people or the federal government?
VI. NATO—The North Atlantic Treaty Organization formed in 1945 at the conclusion of WWII to implement and oversee the reconstruction of Europe. The U.S. has continued to subsidize NATO and has molded it into a Global Army that acts at the behest of the U.S. while making up its own rules of engagement, e.g. “eternal war for eternal peace” e.g. endless preemptive warfare. Politically speaking, blame can be laid at the doorstep of the Neo-conservative wing of the Republican Party, which is now the dominant force.
The U.S. Congress has the total authority to authorize spending and to borrow money on the credit of the U.S. Note here that congress has run up a $16.4 Trillion national debt (which will never be made good) accompanied by $75 Trillion unfunded mandates, e.g. Social Security, Medicare, & unharnessed Medicaid spending. 50% of the population receive some type of government check.
Further note that congress has refused to declare war on countries we have militarily engaged since 1945. In the last spending bills submitted they again flagrantly increased the debt-ceiling.
B. Judicial/Justice– The United States Department of Justice is about anything but justice. Under the aegis of Attorney General Eric Holder any number of criminally corrupt activities have permeated his department and our society.
I. Gunrunning resulting in the death of at least one Border Patrol agent and hundreds of Mexican nationals, resulting in a massive cover up by the DOJ.
II. Refusal to secure our national border with Mexico and negating the order to arrest illegal Mexican & OTM nationals, thereby putting a serious drain on American social, economic & criminal justice systems…e.g. NW Arkansas, the home to Tyson, Wal-Mart, & other mega economic giants who exploit illegals and openly violate 8 USC, Sec. 1325, 1324a, 1324c, & 1644. At the same time NW Arkansas is a major Mexican illegal drug distribution center. How does the above data affect school systems with large numbers of illegals & legals? In the case of Springdale, AR, a city of 30,000 there are 41 different languages spoken in their public school system. Is this not an educational betrayal of American kids and a monetary assault on taxpayers, most particularly when 50% of citizens pay no income taxes? While the above crisis is metastasizing the Chancellor of the U. of A., G. David Gearhart is openly parading illegal Mexican students on stage for political & funding purposes in direct violation of the aforementioned 8 USC.
III. Attorney General Holder’s refusal to prosecute the New Black Panther movement.
IV. A. G. Holder’s refusal to prosecute the GSA & Secret Service scandals.
V. Of major significance is the fact that President Obama and A.G. Holder’s refusal to secure our borders contiguous with Mexico is allowing 1-5 million illegals to enter our country yearly, while the U.S. is securing national borders globally. This of course is by design; to destroy Western Civilization and the Founding Stock of the U.S. by diluting our culture & heritage with 3rd World foreign national minorities who have no record of accomplishment at any level. Jewish interests, since the 1920’s, have been the primary instigators of open borders, cheap illegal labor and unchecked legal immigration which is rapidly producing a Balkanized American society with no hope or intent of acculturation by the invaders, and again, all by design. It must be pointed out here that while Jewish interests in the U.S. are propelling immigration, legal & illegal, Israel, home to Jews, is now building a huge prison in Gaza and completing a 15 ft., 150 mile steel fence separating Israel from Egypt, while at the same time vigorously purging immigrants from Ghana, Ethiopia, Sudan, the Ivory Coast, etc. The new prison is to be a holding pen for non-Jews set for deportation. It is indeed curious that the Israelis are developing an apartheid society while American Jewish organizations (many members are dual-citizens) are advancing a multicultural society in the U.S. and the American government continues to shake in fear from threats and actions emanating from AIPAC, AEI, ADL, ad infinitum when the subject of immigration , legal and illegal surface.
VI. Note with alarm: Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s inner circle is saturated with dual-citizen, neo-conservative Jews. Where does their allegiance lie?
C. Executive—President Barack Hussein Obama
I. Recently Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, in league with other Republicans, stated to the effect that Obama “was in over his head and did not know what he was doing”. Obama is a Marxist/Communist and knows very well what he is doing—he is dismantling our Republic timber by timber while the neo-con Republicans (eternal war for eternal peace) and Obama for that matter, blather about abortions, same-sex marriages, equal pay for women, and Bain Capital…talk about staying off-message! Never speaking of the multiple crises facing our country such as wars, debt, freedom, education, et al.
Americans are swallowing every bit of the destructive nonsense while waving the banners of the Democrat or Republican parties. Not smart!
II. Declared 2 wars unilaterally…Libya and Egypt. Congress AWOL again.
III. Pushed through Obamacare—unconstitutional Socialized Medicine & removes all vestiges of free enterprise fee for service.
IV. Possesses & employs a KILL LIST. President Obama meets every Tuesday morning, when in town, with his senior Generals, spies and advisors and reviews a list of the people they want him to authorize their agents to kill. Obama wages private wars using the CIA singularly to fire drones at thousands of persons in foreign lands. All in direct violation of the Constitution & various congressional edicts. (Source: Judge Andrew Napolitano)
V. Has signed 923 freedom killing Executive Orders.
VI. Presently engaged in at least 6 illegal wars and 2 more in the wings and no peaceful overtures in sight.
VII. Friday, June 15, to parrot President Franklin D. Roosevelt, is a Day of Infamy. President Barack Hussein Obama issued an unconstitutional, illegal memo (a scrap of paper) which by his hand overturned the U.S. Constitution, the Rule of Law and the will of the American people. The memo confers a pseudo amnesty on millions of young illegal aliens and ultimately will lead to amnesty for all invaders. In the end the memo is cynically for votes and the further constitutional, economic & social dismantling of our Republic, while Americans sit on their uneducated, lazy duffs, looking forward to the weekend. And oh yes, Obama & wife by their every action… in your face Whitey! His memo serves as a huge magnet to further increase the flood of 3rd World illegal invaders!
Enough already, the above only scratches the surface. So who do you believe the Real Terrorists to be? If your answer is anything but the U.S. Government you are in the midst of a Mid-Summer Night’s Dream and if you vote to reelect any incumbent you are complicit. The incumbents, after all, are the reason our former preeminent Republic is in a nosedive to the abyss.
By the way, the Arkansas Six voted for every one of the aforementioned, unconstitutional, uncivilized, heinous measures foisted on Americans absent specific knowledge without remorse, honor, or morality.
Better sober up Americans, very quickly, the hangover you have now is mere child’s play compared to what is in the offing.
