Foreign government leases at Trump World Tower stir more emoluments concerns

The U.S. State Department allowed at least seven foreign governments to rent luxury condominiums in New York’s Trump World Tower in 2017 without approval from Congress, according to documents and people familiar with the leases, a potential violation of the U.S. Constitution’s emoluments clause.

Democrats were obligated to impeach this piece of shit con man the day they took office according to their own oaths to defend the Constitution. They are just as corrupt now.

 

Legislative Branch: Members of Congress

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

 

It’s black and white and corrupt all over.

NSA Spying Did Not Result In a SINGLE Foiled Terrorist Plot

“I can say unequivocally … if you are a U.S. person the NSA cannot listen to your telephone calls and the NSA cannot target your emails.”

Washington Post:

Obama administration had restrictions on NSA reversed in 2011
Arrest the president.

The Obama administration secretly won permission from a surveillance court in 2011 to reverse restrictions on the National Security Agency’s use of intercepted phone calls and e-mails, permitting the agency to search deliberately for Americans’ communications in its massive databases, according to interviews with government officials and recently declassified material.

ADDITIONALLY

What does this tell us?

The court in 2008 imposed a wholesale ban on such searches at the [OUTGOING BUSH REGIME’S] government’s request, said Alex Joel, civil liberties protection officer at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI). The government included this restriction “to remain consistent with NSA policies and procedures that NSA applied to other authorized collection activities,” he said.

The Bush regime was doing the same thing but tried to clean up the situation before the Democrats took over.

NSA Satellite Analyst Russell Tice showed that the Bushes were spying on domestic high officials and other opponents back in the early years.

XKeyscore: NSA tool collects ‘nearly everything a user does on the internet’

 

Apparently if you ever visited a foreign website or communicated with a foreigner, that’s enough for them to open up your life to low-level mercenary contractor “analysts” for spying.  Or if you communicated with someone else who visited a foreign website, or communicated with a foreigner — again, enough so-called “justification” for spying on your for the rest of your life.  This is the criminal surveillance state, and Edward Snowden’s revelations expose more and more of this criminal conspiracy.  This is treason against the American people, waging a cyber war against them, and a gross, deliberate assault on the Constitution’s Bill of Rights.

 

Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) DirectThis man should be “court martialed” according to General William Odom.

It’s the absolute end of legitimacy and Constitutional restraint of this fascist empire.  There is nothing but authoritarian abuse of power in America’s future.  No one in power  is accountable for glaring violations of the law.  They have destroyed the Bill of Rights, and continue to do so daily without opposition.

Ray McGovern: Gen. Hayden’s Snow Job on Snowden

“Odom blurted out, “Hayden should have been court martialed.” And President Bush “should be impeached,” added the general with equal fury.

Odom ruled out discussing, during the interview itself, the warrantless eavesdropping revealed by the New York Times three weeks earlier. In a memorandum about the conversation, Kenney opined that Odom appeared so angry that he realized that if he started discussing the still-classified issue, he would not be able to control himself.

Why was Gen. Odom so angry? Because he, like all uniformed officers (as well as many civilian officials), took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; because he took that oath seriously; and because he had done his damndest to ensure that all NSA employees strictly observed the prohibition against eavesdropping on Americans without a warrant.”

Washington’s Blog: Separation of Powers Which Define Our Democracy Have Been Destroyed

“The Department of Justice [sic] told a federal court this week that the NSA’s spying “cannot be challenged in a court of law”.(This is especially dramatic given that numerous federal judges and legal scholars – including a former FISA judge – say that the FISA spying “court” is nothing but a kangaroo court.)

Also this week, the Department of Justice [sic] told a federal court that the courts cannot review the legality of the government’s assassination by drone of Americans abroad.

This was intentional, by design, a top down coup d’etat against the rights of common citizens.  Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Snowden is 100% correct.

CNET:

“NSA spying flap extends to contents of U.S. phone calls
National Security Agency discloses in secret Capitol Hill briefing that thousands of analysts can listen to domestic phone calls. That authorization appears to extend to e-mail and text messages too.”

So the true Treason is from those waging war on the innocent American population in clear — and admitted-to — violation of the Constitution of the United States, that old paper they all swear to uphold.  This is an information war, a cyber war, and should rise to the Constitutional definition of “levying war against them.

ARREST THEM ALL

CARRY OUT YOUR SWORN OATHS

UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION

 

ps

The Guardian published Snowden’s Top Secret NSA Memos today also.  I don’t recommend downloading the documents if you are in the US, as Snowden is also charged today with “espionage” for disclosing the treason of the US regime.  They might charge you with the same if you download the documents (which they monitor in real time).

Orwell never imagined the US totalitarianism.  His vision was informed by the Soviets, in a far less technically advanced age.

I’ve been writing about this stuff for decades, and readers here should already know this stuff.  Hopefully they’re God damned mad about it and not going to take it anymore.

There’s a reason I cite George Orwell over and over again.

Washington Post:

U.S., British intelligence mining data from nine U.S. Internet companies in broad secret program

“The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio and video chats, photographs, e-mails, documents, and connection logs that enable analysts to track foreign targets, according to a top-secret document obtained by The Washington Post.”

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.

Spread this shit, people. America is technically dead right now. Are you the alleged “patriots” most of this population claims to be?


 

“Enemies of the United States Constitution.”

 

“President Obama has utterly failed the first test of his second term, even before inauguration day,” American Civil Liberties Union Executive Director Anthony Romero said in a statement. “His signature means indefinite detention without charge or trial, as well as the illegal military commissions, will be extended.” Obama signs NDAA

America-in-Distress

The executive and legislative branches have declared war on the US Constitution.  The passage of “indefinite detention” without charge or trial should lead to immediate impeachment for violating their oaths of office to “defend the Constitution”.  Every clown who voted in violation of the Constitution for detaining American citizens without due process is now a criminal, under the US Constitution itself.  This is the end of America as we know it.

Need I remind anyone that the obligation to defend the Constitution is from all enemies, both foreign and domestic?

“In November, the ACLU and other organizations sent a letter to President Obama urging him to veto the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) if it impedes the closing of Guantánamo Bay prison by extending restrictions on transferring detainees from the facility. The current transfer restrictions are due to expire on March 27, 2013, but the pending NDAA bills in Congress would extend them until September 30, 2013. The letter tells the president that if the restrictions are extended, “the prospects for Guantánamo being closed during your presidency will be severely diminished, if not gone altogether.” You can read the full letter here.On December 31, 2011, President Obama signed the 2012 NDAA, codifying indefinite military detention without charge or trial into law for the first time in American history. The NDAA’s dangerous detention provisions would authorize the president — and all future presidents — to order the military to pick up and indefinitely imprison people captured anywhere in the world, far from any battlefield. The ACLU will fight worldwide detention authority wherever we can, be it in court, in Congress, or internationally.Under the Bush administration, similar claims of worldwide detention authority were used to hold even a U.S. citizen detained on U.S. soil in military custody, and many in Congress now assert that the NDAA should be used in the same way again. The ACLU believes that any military detention of American citizens or others within the United States is unconstitutional and illegal, including under the NDAA. In addition, the breadth of the NDAA’s detention authority violates international law because it is not limited to people captured in the context of an actual armed conflict as required by the laws of war.”
