Freedom: That Most Precious of HIS Gifts
This year holds special significance for December 15th, the birthday of our Bill of Rights. As I write, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are being attacked and violated in a manner which should sicken and outrage every American.
With few exceptions, our elected officials in Washington have abandoned their duty to protect and defend the Constitution and the unalienable, God-given rights it guarantees. In a rush to “do whatever it takes to defeat terrorism”, the Congress has crowned a new Caesar, George W. Bush, who has demanded new “laws” and issued new Executive Orders—Royal Decrees— which have little to do with fighting terrorism, but have everything to do with turning America into a police-state. These words are not written in jest, for they could now be considered an act of terrorism subjecting the writer to federal prosecution under the dictatorial powers being assumed by the Bush administration.
During eight years of the criminal Clinton administration, blatant power-grabs were met with at least a few howls and token some resistance from the Republican Party faithful. The “conservative” lap-dogs of the GOP yapped when a Democrat tried to compromise their notion of “mom and apple pie” America, but when a Republican president uses a manufactured “crisis” to usurp power, the party falls in line with hardly a whimper—including John Warner, George Allen and Bob Goodlatte. Is gutlessness is the new “golden standard” of national politics? All three voted for despotism in America, and many commentators on both ends of the political spectrum are comparing the situation to Hitler's Burning of the Reichstag.
October 26th is a date which will live in infamy. It is the date Mr. Bush signed H.R.3162, “The USA Patriot Act”, the title truly a fine example of Orwellian double-speak. As Congressman Ron Paul recently stated, “the definition of terrorism has been greatly expanded; almost all of the new laws focus on American citizens rather than potential foreign terrorists.” Anyone who is a fundamentalist Christian, who belongs to a pro-Constitution organization, a lawful citizen militia, a pro-life group, or is a supporter of the Second Amendment, may now be considered a terrorist. “Legitimate protest against the government could place you (and tens of thousands of other Americans) under federal surveillance—your internet can be monitored without your knowledge, and your internet provider can be forced to hand over user information to law enforcement without a warrant or subpoena.”, stated Paul.
Probable cause standards for wiretaps, search warrants and subpoenas have been relaxed or even eliminated. Warrants can be executed without your knowledge. Your home or business can be searched without your knowledge. Your property, personal and business records can be confiscated and held by “law enforcement” without due process. The FBI and CIA can tap your phone and your computers without having to demonstrate any link to a criminal suspect. They are the same “law enforcement agencies” who helped to bring us Waco, Ruby Ridge, and the original World Trade Center bombing (yes, the FBI was up to their neck in it and even helped to “cook” the bomb!). And the CIA, America's premier drug-runners — we should all feel much safer and more secure now that these agencies have been newly empowered, so we can focus on other important things like the Christmas list or little Tommy's basketball practice.
Not only did our two Senators and our Congressman vote for this act of despotism, they didn't read the bill before voting! They, according to Congressman Paul, couldn't read the ACT because the final conference version was not available to Members prior to the vote. Are you paying attention, Mr. and Mrs. America? Do you approve of people representing you in Congress who will vote for a bill containing hundreds of pages of tyranny they have never seen? OK, they're Republicans. Maybe they just made another stupid mistake or were purposely misled by party leaders? But soon, very soon, they will realize and publicly admit their mistake and vote to amend the ACT. Are you still holding your breath? These are the guys who can carry concealed weapons without a special permission slip from Big Brother, who don't have to pay into Social Security, and enjoy a hundred other special perks voted unto themselves, but unavailable to us serfs. If you flip a coin enough times, the odds are 50/50 that you will win. Have you ever wondered why the American people are consistent losers?
Do you relish the idea of being tried by a secret military tribunal; that you may no longer have attorney-client confidentiality; that trial by a jury of your peers may not be available to you or that you may be held without being charged, your whereabouts unknown to your family; and that you could be secretly transported to a foreign country where foreign authorities could interrogate you using “truth serums” or other “techniques” to obtain a confession, and then “tried” with no right to appeal?
Remember Lon Horiuchi, the FBI sniper who blew Vicki Weaver's face away while she held her baby in her arms? There are more like him eagerly waiting to stomp your face with a hobnailed boot, whose excuse will be “we were just taking orders”. Now, let's focus on important things, like Harry Potter. There's no need for you to worry. You're a good citizen of “The Homeland”, and it's best to keep your mouth shut because it won't do any good to say anything anyway, and you wouldn't want to get in trouble with the authorities or lose your job, would you? Of course, there are many loyal, decent and patriotic men and women in the FBI, CIA and other government agencies. But they are not running the show. The Renos, Ashcrofts, Muellers, Cheneys and Robert Hanssens have been running things and they're telling honest underlings to keep their mouths shut about the lies, scandals, crimes and treason perpetrated by those at the top. Fortunately, some of the good federal agents are speaking out, along with Constitutionalists like Ron Paul, and even the “liberal” Democrat Senator Russ Feingold, who had the courage to cast the only “no” vote in the Senate against H.R. 3162. David Schippers, the Lead Investigative Attorney for the impeachment of Bill Clinton, is representing several FBI agents who had evidence of an impending terrorist attack on September 11th, who wanted to take action, but were told to keep quiet by their superiors, “for reasons of National Security”, lest they find themselves in big trouble. Anyone who thinks the Clinton Mafia was bad news, and it certainly was, should read David Schippers' bestseller, “Sellout”, which documents the cowardly duplicity of the Republican leadership. Mr. Schippers, a nationally known Chicago attorney and criminal prosecutor tried to bring the evidence to Ashcroft's attention and to the attention of several members of Congress months before the 9/11 attack. They wouldn't hear him. They said, “We'll call you.” They never did. He's a man of integrity who happens to be a Democrat.
On November 9th, Senator Leahy, a Democrat, asked Attorney General Ashcroft by what authority he could decide to nullify the Fifth Amendment. Ashcroft didn't answer, but Leahy got an anthrax letter in the mail on November 16th. Odd, isn't it, that all the anthrax letters to Capitol Hill have gone to Democrats. Ashcroft, by the way, is the “conservative Republican” who sent armed Federal Marshals to seize an Indianapolis Baptist church for “non-payment of federal taxes” they didn't owe. He was just “enforcing the law”.
The “War on Terrorism” we see unfolding before us has been in the planning for at least four years. International Law Professor Francis A. Boyle, University of Illinois, wrote the following on October 12th: “…the war against Afghanistan was planned for quite some time. We know for a fact that it had been war-gamed by the Pentagon going back to 1997 —we are seeing an operational War Plan being executed here that had been in the works for at least the past four years. September 11th is either a pretext or a trigger or both.” Professor Boyle notes that two US Aircraft carrier tasks forces arrived in the Persian Gulf, 23,000 UK troops, 23,000 US troops, and 29,000 NATO troops were en route to the area before September 11th for military operations. Army Special Forces Master Sergeant Stan Goff, retired military science instructor at West Point, concludes “… the actions we are seeing put into motion now are part of a pre-September 11th agenda. I'm absolutely sure of that, in fact. The planning alone for operations, of this scale, that are now taking shape, would take many months. And we are seeing them take shape in mere weeks.”
Osama bin Laden was and is a CIA asset, nurtured, trained and financed with our tax dollars: $135 Million through fiscal year 2000- 2001 alone. High officials in the federal government and federal intelligence agencies knew of the impending 9/11 attack, and were specifically warned by numerous foreign intelligence agencies and by loyal American intelligence officers of the attack. Even the major media is beginning to grasp the monstrosity of the fraud being perpetrated by the New World Order Bush gang, and the truth is leaking through the cracks in the Establishment media's dyke. Oilman and CIA Spook “Read My Lips” George Bush, Sr., and Halliburton Oil CEO Dick Cheney, are controlling Junior and have gone into “Damage Control Mode”, cracking down on the rights of Americans in order to preserve and enlarge their Empire.
The Empire is based on the control of drugs, oil, natural resources and the property, bodies, minds, and even the souls of humans. Central Asia sits on the largest known and undeveloped oil and gas fields in the world. The region supplies 60-70% of the opium/heroin to the western world, $350-500 Billion in drug money funneled through western banks each year. What, no one told you about that? This is a war for control of the wealth of Central Asia: the poppy fields, drug distribution, the oil fields, and the soon-to-be-built oil pipeline which US and Saudi companies have been planning since the early 1990's. The bin Laden Construction Company is one of the largest contractors in that part of the world.
It is also a war for the control of the USA, the greatest free nation on earth; the greatest, most generous, most industrious, most decent and most trusting people, being betrayed by a gang of amoral Globalist criminals who have nearly taken the reins of power, and whose only loyalty is to wealth, power and the elitists of The New World Order, with the United Nations slated to be their one-world government enforcement mechanism. Ever hear of the Tobin Tax which will increase the U.N. budget 100 fold? NATO forces are already patrolling our skies, and if Mr. Bush has his way, and keeps ceding US sovereignty to NATO and the U.N., there will be foreign U.N. troops on the ground within the USA very soon. They will be needed to “enforce peace” and “restore order” in America when the suitcase nuke goes off in Houston — or to control the smallpox outbreak in California —or to help slaughter the nation's livestock during the epidemic of foot and mouth disease. Remember what the U.N. “peacekeepers” did in Rwanda and Somalia? The photos are not recommended for women— or men with weak stomachs.
The truth is out there. It's being reported on BBC, in Toronto, in the French papers, World Net Daily, FAZ, Reuters, The Times of India, AP, Insight Magazine, MS-NBC and dozens of other reliable sources. But you won't see it on the evening news or hear it on most radio programs or read it in your local paper. Ever heard of Arbusto Energy, The Carlyle Group, Operation Mockingbird, MK Ultra, Prescott Bush's financial ties to Hitler, Promis, Harken Energy, BCCI, Adnan Khashoggi, Echelon, or Project Megiddo? Did you know that in July of this year, Osama bin Laden was being treated in an American hospital in Dubai for a chronic kidney infection, and that a top CIA official met with top asset Osama in his private hospital suite while he was wanted as a fugitive terrorist for the bombings of two US embassies and the USS Cole? On July 14th he was allowed to leave Dubai on his private jet— Reported October 31st in the French daily, Le Figaro. How many more Americans will die before you hold the wimps in Washington accountable?
One of the greatest decisions ever reached by the supreme Court-that is, when we had one-was in the case of Abraham Lincoln's tyrannical suspension of the Writ of Habeas Corpus during the War of Northern Aggression. The Court stated: “The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people equally in war and peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times, and under all circumstances. No doctrine, involving more pernicious consequences, was ever invented by the wit of man than that any of its provisions can be suspended during any of the great exigencies of government.” -Ex Parte Milligan, 71 US 2 (1866).
Now Mr. Bush is about to declare War on your guns, on the last line of defense between you and absolute dictatorship. All that's needed is another spontaneous crisis. Gun registration and then confiscation in the name of “peace, security and safety”-will you nod in a stupor of acquiescence, or will you take a stand? Don't worry; the NRA is working to protect your rights. They supported Bush for president.
Winston Churchill stated, “If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
Aren't the Constitution and The Bill of Rights worth your Life, your Fortune and your Sacred Honor? What will you do to protect the lives and liberty of your children and grandchildren? What won't you do? Those documents are the heart, the soul and the heritage of this nation. Won't you take a few minutes to read and understand the legacy your forefathers left you and how it is being destroyed before your eyes? A pocket-sized copy will be sent, free of charge, to anyone who writes or phones me. It includes The Declaration of Independence. Read it and learn why there's not a dime's worth of difference between King George and George Bush. Did you know the Bush clan is related to the British royal family?
Wave your flags. Place God Bless America stickers on your windows. Remember and honor those who needlessly died on September 11th. Remember our Veterans, especially the POW/MIAs who are still rotting in a Communist Korean or Chinese slave camp or prison, or last seen in the Soviet Gulag. Remember the thousands of Gulf War Vets who have died or are dying horrible deaths because C.F.R. operative Colin Powell, George Bush Sr. and Bill Clinton abandoned them and their families to the chemical-biological horror of Gulf War Syndrome and lied to them, and the rest of us, that it was a “mental problem”. And as you wave your flag, which was probably made in Red China with slave labor, remember it stands for the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, not some criminal or political opportunist you were conned into electing; and that what was once your government has been turned against you by “leaders” who ask you to “trust me”, and then lie to you about the plan to make slaves of you on a global plantation and use you as cannon fodder in empire-building wars in every corner of the world. Let's bring our armed forces home to protect and defend the borders and skies of America.
On December 15th, remember the words of Ben Franklin, “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Are you deserving of either?
On December 15th and every day, pray. Like George Washington, Patrick Henry and General Robert E. Lee, pray for the future of our nation. Pray that He forgives our sins of apathy. And then pray that God will give us the strength, courage and motivation to fight to preserve that most precious of His gifts: Freedom.
