‘Humanity Is Drowning In Washington’s Criminality’ by Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and associate editor of the Wall Street Journal and former columnist for Business Week, Scripps Howard News Service, and Creators Syndicate. While I may find some of Robert’s article a tad bit severe on Conservatives, overall I find myself in agreement on most issues and hope you will take the time to read the full article at the link provided above.
National Intelligence Director James R. Clapper blatantly lied to Congress and remains in office. Keith B. Alexander, Director of the National Security Agency, has also misled Congress, and he remains in office. Attorney General Holder avoids telling Congress the truth on just about every subject, and he also remains in office. The same can be said for President Obama, one of the great deceivers of our time, who is so averse to truth that truth seldom finds its way out of his mouth.
If you lie to a federal investigator, whether under oath or not, you can be arrested, prosecuted and sent to prison. Yet somehow, the federal “elite” can lie to Congress and American citizens with impunity.
Impeachment is the most important power of Congress. The power to impeach is the power to protect all citizens, the Constitution, and all branches of government from an abusive Executive branch. An unused power is like a dead letter law – Its authority disappears. By acquiescing to executive branch lawlessness, Congress has allowed the executive branch to place itself above the law and to escape accountability for its violations of law and the Constitution.
The Constitution is being ignored and domestic laws violated. Does the government have an undeclared agenda for which the “terrorist threat” is a cover? What agenda is more important than the US Constitution and the accountability of government to law?
No citizen is secure unless government is held accountable. It is an absurd idea that any American is more threatened by terrorism than by an unaccountable government that can torture them, execute them or throw them in prison without due process?
Terrorism seldom comes from outside. The source almost always is the government in power. The Czarist secret police set off bombs in order to blame and arrest labor agitators. The Nazis burned down the Reichstag in order to decimate the communists and assume unaccountable power in the name of “public safety. An alleged terrorist threat is a way of using fear to block popular objection to the exercise of arbitrary government power.
Washington defines all resistance to its imperialism and tyranny as “terrorism.” Thus Americans who defend the environment, who defend wildlife, who defend civil liberties and human rights, who protest Washington’s wars and robbery of the people in behalf of special interests, all become ‘domestic extremists,” the term Homeland Security has substituted for ‘terrorists.”
Washington is always morally right, whatever it does, and those who report its crimes are traitors who, stripped of their coddling by civil liberties, are locked away and abused until they confess to their crimes against the state. Anyone who tells the truth are branded enemies of the state and persecuted.
Gorbachev is correct. The collapse of the Soviet Union was a debacle for the entire world. It transformed the US from the “city upon the hill,” the “beacon for humanity,” into an aggressive militarist state. Consequently, America has become despised by everyone who has a moral conscience and a sense of justice.
