Open Letter to US Law Enforcement
Who are you, really? And what exactly is your role in the bigger picture?
This is not an academic question, but goes to the heart of who is in charge and if they themselves are on the right side of the law. With numerous whistleblowers from the National Security Agency coming forth, as well as from the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, all of them exposing crimes committed by those in charge, you should pay special attention to what these individuals are saying about current so-called "leaders."
Former President Richard Nixon once said, "Well, when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal." How many law enforcement officers would accept this excuse today? How many have already accepted it as a fact of the current United States system of "justice?"
The 4 th Amendment of the US Constitution, in the Bill of Rights, is explicitly clear that a "warrant" is necessary to invade the personal effects of civilians. We are all mandated by the highest law in the land to be "secure" in our "persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures."
Government officials swear an oath of office to defend this Constitution, as you yourself have also probably done. To knowingly, flagrantly and systematically violate this oath -- in secret no less -- is a grievous crime against the United States. To do it with impunity and protection from prosecution, however, is something else entirely. A government that does not respect the laws that it publicly swears to defend is a fraud and a tyranny.
To casually throw away the 4 th Amendment, a bedrock freedom, the cornerstone of a free and open society, is not only unacceptable. It is Treason, the waging of a war against the People of the United States.
By what right can Constitutionally guaranteed rights be deleted? These protections have served us for more than two centuries, and yet in the age of technology they are to be dismissed without debate, by secret decree? By memos that are classified "Top Secret" because they directly violate the Supreme Law of the Land?
