We must respect the Rule of Law! We must bring back respect for the Rule of Law. Mr. Sessions, both the president's lawyer and the US Attorney General has initiated a low rumbling chant that I expect his crowds to wave and chant in unison"make America great again.
A question we might ask is, when did America stop being great? And why have our politicians and MSM hid our loss of shine for, how long? It seems conspiratorial that we should be so unaware that we are no longer great. Are we even good?
It is a fact that after the Declaration of Independence was signed and the US formed in 1783, America was already flawed. Yes, it is a fact. Its baked-in iniquities flourished to mete out death to individuals despite their native birth in or allegiance to this Great America "regrettably" were unprotected by the "bold" experiment of the new America. Surely we can forgive those oversights or miss-sights. II imagine that is easier for those with power -- to forgive themselves, than those without power to accept great and noble words and gestures without corresponding deeds.
While we have had amendments to rectify some sins, generation after generation persist in making America great -- not for everyone, but only for some. Why is that? Where do these "great Americans" learn such behavior?
So when I hear someone such as Mr. Jeffrey Beauregard Sessions casually throw about the phrase, "Rule of Law", I am nearly overcome by the indignity of the utterance. There he sits, comfortable in the knowledge of the tools at his disposal, except they shall never be disposed, rather they should always be available to him and others like him to probe, prod, sneak, pry, steal and kill others in their drive to let the people know who is the boss of them, who is in control, especially the poor and those for whom the rule of law applies. Mr. Sessions is not a friend of freedom and liberty. He is not an advocate for democracy and justice and upholding civil and human rights. Especially insofar as the US has for nearly 70 years refused to sign the UN Resolution on Human Rights. You'd think that someone would have noticed that small oversight while talking about making America great again. Great for whom? If we want to exercise human rights in the US through legal means we must use international organizations to do so. Good luck with that. As Justice Scalia might say, "we don't need no stinking examples of jurisprudence from other countries to make the United States Supreme Court better. Hopefully he is having a very heated discussion about that wherever he is. Make America great again indeed!
Many poor Americans know the history of the Department of Justice, its division, the Federal Bureau of Investigation with its steady drip, drip and stripping down of fourth amendment protection by a terror stricken "Supreme" court. Are we to believe that the FBI is anything but a tool of the ruling elites? Are we to believe that it is on the side of the people, that it is our protector against powerful elements that are beyond individual people's ability to combat? Yes, that is what we are supposed to believe. That they are also our friends?
They are not.
They have not been for a long time"and that blip with Robert Kennedy is just a drop of justice for Americans in an ocean of blood thirsty unjust elites.
How does one counter the power of the state as a tool of the elites? They can shutdown protests and the people's ability to organize; they can turn on and off your devices and even listen to you even after you have turned them off. Hell they can even remotely launch a 747, fly it cross country and slam it into your backyard barbeque grill just to be an ass. Yes they can. Recently some tools figured out how to use a super fast camera to photograph vibrations on plant leaves and reconstruct those vibrations into theconversations of those in the room"why? Our postal service mail with its return addresses along with the addressee are photocopied and retained. Tons of electrons have been "hoovered up" (as the British sometimes say about their own NSA, the GSHQ) is awaiting a challenge yet to reach the Supreme Court about the legality of such collection and storage, and in the meanwhile, there it is, being used and distributed with very little oversight from NSA to FBI down to your friendly Po Po. And if SCOTUS conservative men ever grow a pair, do you think this tool of the elites will throw away this information and pretend that it has been destroyed? All the multi-billionaires of the world will have copies of it.
