My country ’tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing…

What happens when the checks and balances of our government are compromised, and justice is undermined?

What happens when the most criminally corrupt group of criminals rule with nearly complete control of the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government for nearly two full Administrations, and the media fails to oppose, to challenge and to expose them?

Criminal malfeasance. Negligence. Dereliction of duty. Failure — multiple failures: failure to uphold the law, failure to act, failure to uphold the duty and responsibility of office.

Actively undermining the just due process of the law and Constitution. Actively interfering with the proper operation of government.

War crimes.

Eight years of crimes, unaccountable to anyone and protected by the entire Republican party — and Joe Lieberman.

“…one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all…”

Now the news of secret prison ships is back in the news — had everyone (in the US) forgotten about it?

It came out before, amid the dribs and drabs and faux horror at the secret prison and rendition exposure.  I say “faux” horror because nothing was done to stop it. Nothing overcame the Republican then-majority. Nothing overcame the post-2005 Republican minority’s braggadacio over their successful obstruction of the slim-majority Democrats.

This is what was printed then:

Here’s a few choice selections from the list:

And this is what is coming out (again) now:

And let’s not forget this:1

_____

Government lawyers told federal judges that the president can send the military into any U.S. neighborhood, capture a citizen and hold him in prison without charge, indefinitely.

_____

My fellow Americans, where the hell is the outrage? Where are the people demanding that these criminal leaders, who have fouled the reputation of our nation beyond anything imaginable, are removed from office — along with all those who protect them still — and held accountable for their crimes?

Wake up, my fellow citizens. This MUST be stopped now, before they leave office and disappear back into the woodwork. We must reject their crimes NOW, before they are allowed to leave, or anything we do afterward will simply be a token nod at the concept of the liberty and justice we once believed in and believe that we stood for as a nation.

    I just had to vent.

  1. on another thread but think it belongs here:

    The point could be made that, as traitors (more on that later when I look up the links) and as the party that has trashed the Constitution of the U.S., not to mention trashed the Bill of Rights, not to mention undermined the Geneva Conventions, not to mention waged an illegal war against Iraq, not to mention sold out the country to the highest bidder (see kbr, etc.), not to mention undermined the system of law by politicizing the DoJ (see, for example, the case against Don Siegelman, etc.), not to mention thrown away billions of taxpayer dollars (see all of the above)…I dunno, I just think maybe, just maybe, we can make the case that the GOP is so corrupt that it amounts to much more than “high crimes and misdemeanors”–that under this government, it amounts to full-scale treason.  J’accuse:  GWB, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove; and all their many minions.

    Whaddya think?

    fucked.  Sorry for the crudeness.

    Make a choice.  You want to make this country better?  Or you want to check out?

    Suggest you choose one or the other.

    This country is an empire in decline.

  2. TacMars,VMAD,LifeLog, mockingbird, MKultra are but a few keywords.  Don’t ignore the “hattery” embrace it for even the web documents blacklisted M$M infotainment zombi-news topics via projectcensored.org.  Sadly this zombinews concept is spilling over into the net and it is making my job of determining the actual date of the planned and by design push the button artificial Apocalypse far harder to determine.  More now than ever before Alex Jones and the secret corporate oriented world of the Superclass and the Davos set, the Bilderburg, CFR, Club of Rome and Bohemian Grove is making far more sense.  The deliberate destruction of America for profit enhancement of the few, the elite and truely Satanically oriented.

    As much as I really would like to shoot the toes off of the Bill Krystol types with a 22 caliber semi-auto I fear the resulting Kum-Bah-Ya manufactured and socially engineered radical left wing shift will be the final coffin nail in the great American experiment.  At one time in the history of man we did come close to making all men equal but those in command of the money are going to prevent that.  Surviving the Apocalypse only to become servants of the Georgia Guidestones.
