Things are double-plus ungood in the Reich.

I used to try and give cops the benefit of the doubt.  The job is difficult; there are a lot of assholes in the world to deal with; armed and dangerous population; etc.

But, their response has overwhelmingly been to attack US citizens who are upset about police murdering people in cold blood in broad daylight. They are as bad as any occupying army.

This shit will not stand.

Police Erupt in Violence Nationwide

Open Letter to US Law Enforcement

Who are you, really?  And what exactly is your role in the bigger picture?

This is not an academic question, but goes to the heart of who is in charge and if they themselves are on the right side of the law.  With numerous whistleblowers from the National Security Agency coming forth, as well as from the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, all of them exposing crimes committed by those in charge, you should pay special attention to what these individuals are saying about current so-called “leaders.”

Former President Richard Nixon once said, Well, when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal.”

How many law enforcement officers would accept this excuse today?  How many have already accepted it as a fact of the current United States system of “justice?”

The 4th Amendment of the US Constitution, in the Bill of Rights, is explicitly clear that a “warrant” is necessary to invade the personal effects of civilians.  We are all mandated by the highest law in the land to be “secure” in our “persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.”

Government officials swear an oath of office to defend this Constitution, as you yourself have also probably done.

To knowingly, flagrantly and systematically violate this oath – in secret no less – is a grievous crime against the United States.  To do it with impunity and protection from prosecution, however, is something else entirely.  A government that does not respect the laws that it publicly swears to defend is a fraud and a tyranny.

To casually throw away the 4th Amendment, a bedrock freedom, the cornerstone of a free and open society, is not only unacceptable.  It is Treason, the waging of a war against the People of the United States.  By what right can Constitutionally guaranteed rights be deleted?  These protections have served us for more than two centuries, and yet in the age of technology they are to be dismissed without debate, by secret decree?  By memos that are classified “Top Secret” because they directly violate the Supreme Law of the Land?

Armies of police are to enforce these secret decrees as law and to assist the surveillance state without question?

Are we a nation of sovereign citizens or of human drones who execute instructions?

On April 19th of this year, the federal government “crossed the Rubicon” suspending the Constitution in Boston and ordering nearly 10,000 heavily armed troops to “lockdown” a major metropolitan city.  Homes were searched without warrants and invaded at gunpoint by squads and platoons of officers, many of them from the local force who had been militarized and placed under the command of federal authorities.  All this was done to apprehend a single injured suspect.

A Supreme Court decision already decided that the Constitution cannot be suspended no matter how inconvenient it may be perceived by those in power.  In Ex parte Milligan (1866), the Court wrote:

“The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in 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.”

By testing this new suspension of the Constitution in the wake of the latest terrorism event in Boston, a cynical calculated play was made to convince people that the government somehow possessed the right to do so, when clearly no such right exists.  This outright subversion of Constitutional protections was tested that day to see if it could set a precedent and be sold to the public on the basis of allegedly protecting them.  This ploy used public perception as a means to subvert the law and to overturn the established restrictions on the government’s exercise of force here domestically against its own citizens in their homes!

This July 4th, 2013, it’s time to wake up and smell the clear felonies coming out of Washington DC.  Crimes of this scale and sweeping nature threaten to turn America into George Orwell’s Big Brother police state.  And law enforcement officers are not immune to the surveillance.  Their privacy is no more protected than mine.  Nor is the privacy of a Congressman or a Supreme Court Judge or even the head of the CIA, David Petraeus.

A high-level NSA whistleblower, a satellite analyst named Russell Tice, revealed:

“[NSA] went after lawyers and law firms… They went after judges. One of the judges is now sitting on the Supreme Court that I had his wiretap information in my hand… They went after State Department officials. They went after people in the executive service that were part of the White House — their own people.”

We are now a society wide open to blackmail.  We are without privacy, and can be hacked at the will of secret, often private contractors, such as Edward Snowden’s recent employer.  Mr. Snowden, remember, wasn’t working for the US government in an official capacity, but at the time was employed by a private corporation, Booz, Allen Hamilton.  Right now thousands of privately-paid computer “analysts” can wiretap anyone at their own discretion.

Edward Snowden said:

“Any analyst at any time can target anyone.  …I sitting at my desk certainly had the authorities to wiretap anyone, from YOU or your accountant to a federal judge to even the president if I had a personal email.”

That means you, the reader, are also vulnerable.  Your life is an open book, and should you in the future need to be coerced and blackmailed into silence or into acting in a particular manner, that can easily be arranged.  Information from your digital presence and history across telephone, web, credit card and any other channel is now stored indefinitely by this emerging, unconstitutional surveillance state.

That is not freedom.  That is not Constitutional governance.  That is not the America I was taught about in school, as were you.

That is why the flag flies upside down here today.

Boston-martial-law

J. Michael Springmann, the US Consulate Official who blew the whistle on CIA operatives in his own department skirting the law and allowing dangerous Mujahadeen fighters into the United States (issuing visas in violation of the law), has a new article on the Boston cover-up.

Boston Baked BS

Springmann talking about visas improperly issued in Saudi Arabia, related to the 9/11 hijacker visas:

 

 

I’m starting to get worried that the big fix is in.

A ray of sunshine, Veterans Affairs Journal covered the Daniel Hopsicker revelations about CIA/Graham E. Fuller and Tsarnaev brothers’ uncle Ruslan Tsarni.

Although it is a proven, indisputable fact that the boys’ uncle was married to the daughter of a top CIA official who is a specialist in Islamic extremism and was former CIA station chief in Kabul Afghanistan, this fact cannot be published in any corporate news source — or at least it hasn’t to date.  How is it that a little movie blog can write and post for days about this explosive evidence, yet the New York Times can’t find it relevant to the world?

I’m disheartened though because RT / Russia Today has also failed to report this case.  I have personally, and repeatedly notified RT of the existence of this information, and yet have seen nothing.  Hopsicker’s initial finding is dated April 26.  It’s the 30th.

?

russiatoday

I am truly disturbed this time because even RT and Abby Martin are silenced on this issue so far. This is indicative of something Sibel Edmonds said the other day, and that is that Russia may be making a deal with Washington behind the scenes.

The hypothetical deal is as follows. Washington throws their Chechen terrorists to the wolves: the Russian security services. In exchange Russia abandons Assad in Syria, allowing NATO to launch major military actions and take Syria.

That leaves Sibel Edmonds and a handful of brave whisleblowers and fringe investigators (like me!!!) as the only news sources on the CIA / Boston Marathon bombing connections.  I’m afraid not enough people view these sources to make a substantial dent and get the actual truth out to the masses.  It’s the 9/11 cover up all over again.

But this time the end game is to ramp up the unaccountable, secretive police state, as we witnessed the show of force in Boston when literally thousands of heavily armed troops and armored personnel carriers flooded the streets and searched homes without warrants.  Look for more of that.

And to get more of that, nothing works better than more incidents to sell it with to the public.  This is an extremely dangerous time, and with the complete abandonment by the news media, we are in a state of fascist top-down control.  Now, already.

If the crimes and abuses of the government cannot be challenged, it is by default a tyranny, a despotic regime.

Watch this news carefully.  It is undeniable that Graham Fuller’s daughter married Ruslan, the uncle of the two ALLEGED bombers.  Even Graham Fuller has admitted as much.  The rest of the story is what the CIA has been doing in Chechnya since 1995, when Ruslan Tsarnaev first set up the “Congress of Chechen International Organizations” from Graham Fuller’s home.

There is no clearer or more desperate example of media censorship today than this news story.

Truthout publishes Glorious Martial Law? Well somebody thinks this stuff is important! Come on, people. Look alert.

Some of us have been hollering about this linear cliff dive to police state totalitarianism for a lot of years.  Others play video games all day.

This video is what the police state looks like.  It’s unconstitutional.  There are no warrants.  There is no reasonable suspicion.  This is treating the citizens like criminals in their own homes arbitrarily, and if it is not opposed immediately, it is the end of the United States as a republic.  Oddsmakers are probably not giving the constitution and democracy much benefit of the doubt in Vegas right now.

Here is what the supreme court said about martial law practices in the past:

“Those great and good men foresaw that troublous times would arise when rulers and people would become restive under restraint, and seek by sharp and decisive measures to accomplish ends deemed just and proper, and that the principles of constitutional liberty would be in peril unless established by irrepealable law. The history of the world had taught them that what was done in the past might be attempted in the future. The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times {121} 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. Such a doctrine leads directly to anarchy or despotism, but the theory of necessity on which it is based is false, for the government, within the Constitution, has all the powers granted to it which are necessary to preserve its existence, as has been happily proved by the result of the great effort to throw off its just authority.”
–U.S. Supreme Court, Ex Parte Milligan, 71 U.S. 2 (4 Wall.), (1866)

Those instituting a police state right now should be impeached for treason.

Glorious Martial Law?

Joe Giambrone

 

“Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
(Who watches the watchers?)”
–Juvenal

Are we allowed to talk about martial law, the militarization of police, and the complete shutdown of cities on command?  Or will that get the glorious law enforcers to storm and kick in our own doors now?  Just what are the rules in effect today?  Just what sort of precedent is being set here right before our eyes?

It was your commoner citizens who located the Boston bombing suspect after finding him hiding in a boat.  This was after the martial law decree had arbitrarily been lifted, and it was now ordered permissible to go out in one’s backyard again.

Is martial law the answer to sticky incidents with fleeing suspects?  Can this now apply to any suspects or any manhunt in the United States, anywhere, for any reason?

One might argue that clearing the streets under military decree is very useful for a particular purpose when pursuing a suspect: allowing a “free fire zone” of automatic .40 caliber hollow point gunfire, the known preference of the new “Homeland Security” apparatus.  So what precedents are we setting now, in terms of rewriting the entire law enforcement paradigm, arguably a much more serious concern than a single 19 year old bleeding suspect.  Yeah.  What the fuck actually happened last week in Boston?

“Governor Deval Patrick took an unprecedented security step, asking people in Boston, Watertown, and several other nearby communities — totaling a million people — to “shelter in place” — stay at home behind locked doors and open up only to police officers with proper identification.”
Boston Globe

“Asking?”  Martial law is just a friendly request, and the Globe dutifully disseminates.  CBS News counts “thousands of heavily armed law enforcement officers and scores of military-style tactical vehicles,” but is quick to have an expert standing by to justify it as “perfect sense.”  Just perfect.  All that for one bleeding, injured 19 year old.

One wonders how many tank divisions and predator squadrons might have been called in if this was one of the much-fabled “cells” we hear so much about on TV.  I’m not disputing the need to capture the suspect, an obviously dangerous person, given what he is accused of doing.  I am disputing the federal intervention, the military suspension of the Constitution and the militarization of local policing – all greatly warned about numerous times as we descend into outright authoritarianism, clamoring for the federal troops and toys to come and save us.  Not only were the public politely “asked” to stay within their homes, authorities also pushed the “media back further and further from the action unfolding (CBS).”  This bodes well for a free and open society.

In the midst of all this bombing hysteria the House of Representatives (sic) passed CISPA, with more government/private sector spying.  Less accountability for the mishandling of your private data, and more total information awareness totalitarianism is ensured.  That is the direction that every single one of these bills travels, bar none.  Nearly every act of Congress concerning security of any sort increases government and corporate surveillance powers, diminishes accountability, oversight and the public’s right to challenge their own surveillance by authorities both public and private.  We are living more and more in The Matrix, with 4th Amendment protections now considered “quaint” and of a bygone era that no longer has any relevance today.

Praise for surveillance cameras has been noted since Boston with calls for more public surveillance, more facial recognition, more integration of things like traffic cameras and license plate readers.

“I think CCTV cameras are much more needed in urban areas.”
-Rep. Peter King (R), New York, House Committee on Homeland Security

Of course he does.  He thought that before this latest photo op.  The answer is always more security, more surveillance, more intrusion, and less individual protection from government and from the private corporate sector.

A tremendous catharsis overwhelmed Boston with the announced capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, as if that explained and ended everything.  When you enact martial law with thousands of machinegun wielding stormtroopers and armored personnel carriers in the streets, and then make them go away, the people will be grateful.  No doubt.

But this is where the story should be entering a new phase of discovery, intense investigation and disclosure.  Sorry Boston; this is far from the end.

It was the FBI, apparently, who had monitored the two Chechen brothers for years, according to their own mother.  Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva claims the FBI had contacted her and her sons repeatedly over the past 5 years.  She even claims that the two were “controlled” by the Feds and “set up” in some kind of sting operation.  If that sounds baseless, well we have already had an admission by FBI that they “interviewed” the older brother Tamerlan back in 2011.  Further, the Wall Street Journal reports that this FBI interview was in response to a “request by the Russian government.

Scratch the vinyl.  Say what?
