Chuck Norris is no
pinko-liberal-commie, and Human Events is a very conservative publication. The
two have come together to produce one of the most important articles of our
time, "Obama's US Assassination Program."
It seems only yesterday
that Americans, or those interested in their civil liberties, were shocked that
the Bush regime so flagrantly violated the FlSA law against spying on American
citizens without a warrant. A federal judge serving on the FISA court even
resigned in protest to the illegality of the spying.
Nothing was done about
it. "National security" placed the president and executive branch above the law
of the land. Civil libertarians worried that the US government was freeing its
power from the constraints of law, but no one else seemed to
Encouraged by its success
in breaking the law, the executive branch early this year announced that the
Obama regime has given itself the right to murder Americans abroad if such
Americans are considered a "threat." "Threat" was not defined and, thus, a
death sentence would be issued by a subjective decision of an unaccountable
There was hardly a peep
out of the public or the media. Americans and the media were content for the
government to summarily execute traitors and turncoats, and who better to
identify traitors and turncoats than the government with all its spy
The problem with this sort of thing is that once it starts, it doesn't stop. As Norris reports citing Obama regime security officials, the next stage is to criminalize dissent and criticism of the government. The May 2010 National Security Strategy states:
"We are now moving beyond traditional distinctions between homeland and national
security . . . This includes a determination to prevent terrorist attacks
against the American people by fully coordinating the actions that we take
abroad with the actions and precautions that we take at
Most Americans will
respond that the "indispensable" US government would never confuse an American
exercising First Amendment rights with a terrorist or an enemy of the state.
But, in fact, governments always have. Even one of our Founding Fathers, John
Adams and the Federalist Party, had their "Alien and Sedition Acts" which
targeted the Republican press.
Few with power can brook
opposition or criticism, especially when it is a simple matter for those with
power to sweep away constraints upon their power in the name of "national
security." Deputy National Security Adviser John Brennan recently explained that
more steps are being taken, because of the growing number of Americans who have
been "captivated by extremist ideology or causes." Notice that this phrasing
goes beyond concern with Muslim terrorists.
In pursuit of hegemony
over both the world and its own subjects, the US government is shutting down the
First Amendment and turning criticism of the government into an act of "domestic
extremism," a capital crime punishable by execution, just as it was in Hitler's
Germany and Stalin's Russia.
Initially German courts
resisted Hitler's illegal acts. Hitler got around the courts by creating a
parallel court system, like the Bush regime did with its military tribunals. It
won't be long before a decision of the US Supreme Court will not mean anything.
Any decision that goes against the regime will simply be
This is already happening
in Canada, an American puppet state. Writing for the Future of Freedom
Foundation, Andy Worthington documents the lawlessness of the US trial of
Canadian Omar Khadr. In January of this year, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled
that the interrogation of Khadr constituted "state conduct that violates the
principles of fundamental justice" and "offends the most basic Canadian
standards about the treatment of detained youth suspects."
According to the
Toronto Star, the Court instructed the government to "shape a response that
reconciled its foreign policy imperatives with its constitutional obligations to
Khadr," but the puppet prime minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, ignored the
Court and permitted the US government to proceed with its lawless abuse of a
September 11 destroyed
more than lives, World Trade Center buildings, and Americans' sense of
invulnerability. The event destroyed American liberty, the rule of law and
