- Chuck Norris is no pinko-liberal-commie, and Human Events
is a very conservative publication. The two have come together to produce
one of the most important articles of our time, "Obama's US Assassination
- It seems only yesterday that Americans, or those interested
in their civil liberties, were shocked that the Bush regime so flagrantly
violated the FlSA law against spying on American citizens without
a warrant. A federal judge serving on the FISA court even resigned in protest
to the illegality of the spying.
- Nothing was done about it. "National
security" placed the president and executive branch above the
law of the land. Civil libertarians worried that the US government was
freeing its power from the constraints of law, but no one else seemed to
- Encouraged by its success in breaking the law, the executive
branch early this year announced that the Obama regime has given itself
the right to murder Americans abroad if such Americans are considered a "threat." "Threat" was
not defined and, thus, a death sentence would be issued by a subjective
decision of an unaccountable official.
- There was hardly a peep out of the public or the media.
Americans and the media were content for the government to summarily execute
traitors and turncoats, and who better to identify traitors and turncoats
than the government with all its spy programs.
- The problem with this sort of thing is that once it starts,
it doesn't stop. As Norris reports citing Obama regime security officials,
the next stage is to criminalize dissent and criticism of the government.
The May 2010 National Security Strategy states: "We are now
moving beyond traditional distinctions between homeland and national security.
. . . This includes a determination to prevent terrorist attacks against
the American people by fully coordinating the actions that we take abroad
with the actions and precautions that we take at home."[PDF]
- Most Americans will respond that the "indispensable" US
government would never confuse an American exercising First Amendment rights
with a terrorist or an enemy of the state. But, in fact, governments always
have. Even one of our Founding Fathers, John Adams and the Federalist Party,
had their "Alien and Sedition Acts" which targeted
the Republican press.
- Few with power can brook opposition or criticism, especially
when it is a simple matter for those with power to sweep away constraints
upon their power in the name of "national security." Deputy
National Security Adviser John Brennan recently explained that more steps
are being taken, because of the growing number of Americans who have been "captivated
by extremist ideology or causes." Notice that this phrasing goes
beyond concern with Muslim terrorists.
- In pursuit of hegemony over both the world and its own
subjects, the US government is shutting down the First Amendment and turning
criticism of the government into an act of "domestic extremism," a
capital crime punishable by execution, just as it was in Hitler's Germany
and Stalin's Russia.
- Initially German courts resisted Hitler's illegal acts.
Hitler got around the courts by creating a parallel court system, like
the Bush regime did with its military tribunals. It won't be long before
a decision of the US Supreme Court will not mean anything. Any decision
that goes against the regime will simply be ignored.
- This is already happening in Canada, an American puppet
state. Writing for the Future of Freedom Foundation, Andy Worthington documents the
lawlessness of the US trial of Canadian Omar Khadr. In January of this
year, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the interrogation
of Khadr constituted "state conduct that violates the principles
of fundamental justice" and "offends the most basic
Canadian standards about the treatment of detained youth suspects." According
to the Toronto Star, the Court instructed the government to "shape
a response that reconciled its foreign policy imperatives with its constitutional
obligations to Khadr," but the puppet prime minister of Canada,
Stephen Harper, ignored the Court and permitted the US government to proceed
with its lawless abuse of a Canadian citizen.[Khadr ill-served without
Supreme Court prescription, By Chantal Hébert, August 11, 2010]
- September 11 destroyed more than lives, World Trade Center
buildings, and Americans' sense of invulnerability. The event destroyed
American liberty, the rule of law and the US Constitution.
- Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the
Treasury during President Reagan's first term. He was Associate Editor
of the Wall Street Journal.
