''ACTS OF TREASON BECAUSE THE RULE OF LAW WAS SHATTERED''
Henk Ruyssenaars - Foreign correspondent
FPF - 29 August 2007 - Rivers Pitt wrote about the traitors in the evil US/UK junta, and it's one of the best articles I've read lately. There's something missing in the whole though: the people in general seem to land from the frying pan into the fire when Michael Chertoff, the present 'Gestapo chief' of the US, replaces Gonzales.*
Chertoff, one of many traitors with a double nationality and a Janus face, topped the list of names mentioned as possible successors after the despicable traitor Gonzales, who for months has fended off calls to quit amid charges he lied to Congress and politicized the Justice Department. He actually did both, and a lot more damage. Yesterday Gonzales - like all rats now leaving the sinking ship - announced his resignation, effective Sept. 17.
But, as I said, Chertoff and his "Homeland Security" really is bad for humanity: they use every possible way of spying, blackmail and intimidation and use the law against the people it is supposed to defend. Among many other normally illegal controls of the population, Chertoff with his 'security' (for whom?) freaks has build a secret vast electronic control net covering the US - and a lot more - which now ought to be completed. It's called the HSIN, and (in 2006) includes 50 states, five territories, 53 major urban areas, local officials and officials from Britain, Canada and Australia. It connects ''Homeland Security'' advisors, governor's offices, and emergency management agencies all across the country.*
CHERTOFF SPEAKS FOR HIS GROUP AND ALL IT'S VILE COLLABORATORS.
He's NOT speaking about defending the constitutional rights of the people that pay him and his ilk: "So, intelligence is a tool that not only pays off in terms of better security, but actually enhances our civil liberties and our economic prosperity." he said.
That's what's called Shutzpa! Who's 'security'? Who's 'liberties'? Who's 'prosperity'?
On how to further defend the US/UK junta's interests and those profiting from the present inhumane and global situation, this statement by Chertoff is clear enough: "There are now tens of thousands of users with access to a host of information, real-time thread information about counterterrorism and intelligence-focused activities; law enforcement data and analysis; critical infrastructure information, including private sector participation; cyber security incident reporting; and, through our now secret pathway, HSIN-Secret, which allows the sharing of secret information in an environment in which those who are properly cleared and look across the whole range of classified information that is relevant to their jobs. We are going to strengthen the secret element of HSIN through HSDN, which is yet another pathway for data exchange, both unclassified and classified."
But it's not only Gonzales: there are traitors and collaborators from all the US/UK junta's protectorates as well, which scare the hell out of those who know about their work. As written earlier: "If somebody would inform you, that the former Ex-head of the inhuman and despicable Soviet secret service 'KGB', General Yevgeni Primakov, as well as Markus Wolfe, the ex-boss of the ''STASI'', the equally feared former East German State "Security Police'' - (Staats Sicherheits Dienst) - have been hired by the United States Gov't for the lawless and already feared secret service "HOMELAND Security", as experts to reinforce the control in the US of all it's citizens: would that make you sleep badly ? Im sorry to wreck your night's rest, but it seems that it just happened to you, or, better said: to all of us globally."*
BURNING THE LAW IN A RIOT OF TREASON
It's those treacherous humanoids which have turned the US and it's protectorates into what William Rivers Pitt describes in his article "Burning the law in a riot of treason'' which is published in 't r u t h o u t'.* - ''As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. - Supreme court justice William O. Douglas
The departure of Alberto Gonzales from the Attorney General's Office brings America to a place of definitions, and hanging in the balance is the very idea of the nation itself. The basic concepts and fundamental principles of our republic now stand as the only legitimate considerations going forward, for they have been tested almost to annihilation already, and will not endure much longer if we continue on this path.
It is the mythology within the Declaration of Independence we speak of, the fiction that tells us we are endowed with rights, and that those rights are unalienable. This falsehood has been vividly exposed in the last several years, and it has been a harsh lesson indeed. All the rights we hold dear and believe to be our greatest strength are, in fact, only words on old paper with neither force nor power. The next line - "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed" - is the muscle behind the myth, the core that has endured a withering assault.
Matters are so much worse than our national political dialogue lets on. The resignation of Gonzales has unleashed a torrent of hard words and harsh criticisms aimed at the deplorable nature of his tenure, but the truth of it continues to elude mention. They call Gonzales an incompetent, a crony, a loyalist, a disgrace, leaving off the one word necessary to fully explain who he is, and what he was engaged in before he stepped down.
ALBERTO GONZALES IS A TRAITOR. THAT IS THE ONLY WORD TO EXPLAIN IT.
He is not the only one; there are many more traitors like him in the Bush administration, criminals joined in an act of treason so vast and comprehensive that it beggars comparison. Nothing quite like this has ever before been attempted in America, and if they are allowed to succeed, there will be nothing of what defines America left to be seen.
Gonzales and his Bush administration collaborators have committed their treason against the rule of law itself, a crime so absolute that it is technically not illegal. There is no code, ordinance or law specifically forbidding the total ruination of all our rights and protections; the act is neither felony nor misdemeanor, because nobody ever considered the black-letter necessity of making it illegal to destroy the rule of law.
But there is no America without that rule of law - no rights, no protections, no Constitution; there is nothing, and if you destroy the rule of law, you destroy the idea that is America itself. The only word for a crime like that is treason, and those who would dare commit it are traitors. Gonzales and his Bush administration collaborators have done more than dare. They have been pursuing it, with deliberation and intent, throughout each moment of their tenure.
Their treason is not in the actual crimes they have committed, but in the way they have chosen to avoid accountability for them. Their treason is not their refusal to obey the Freedom of Information Act, but in their insistence that they are above the application of that law. Their treason is not in their refusal to obey subpoenas from Congress, but in their claim that they are above the laws behind those subpoenas. Their treason is not that they fired United States attorneys and then refused to come clean about it, but that they decimated the impartiality of the Department of Justice and turned the rule of law into another partisan weapon. Their treason is not the NSA surveillance of Americans, but their steadfast refusal to submit to the governing laws and the requirement of oversight.
AN ACT OF TREASON BECAUSE IT SHATTERED THE RULE OF LAW
When George W. Bush asserted a claim of Executive Privilege that made him and his administration immune to all laws and oversight, that was an act of treason because it shattered the rule of law. When Dick Cheney asserted that the Office of the Vice President was not part of the Executive Branch, because he did not want to obey the laws requiring him to hand over official documents to the Archives, that was an act of treason because it shattered the rule of law. When Alberto Gonzales chose to surrender the independence of the Department of Justice so he could protect those assertions, that was an act of treason because it shattered the rule of law.
Americans have only the rights they are able to protect and defend. Our rights are nothing more than ideas; only theory and argument on parchment all too easily burned to ashes. The power of those rights is only found in our collective submission to the rule of law, and submission to that rule of law is all that stands between our freedoms and the conflagration of tyranny. Without the rule of law, there is no America.
That is the treason of Alberto Gonzales, and the treason of the Bush administration entire. They have attacked and undercut the rule of law by refusing to submit to it, and in doing so have brought us to the edge of appalling infamy. Theirs is a crime without peer, and we will be fortunate beyond measure if we are able to recover from it.
The fact that Alberto Gonzales has left is meaningless in the main, because the treason he participated in continues in his absence. If the damage is to be repaired, he must be replaced by someone who will submit to the main imperative, someone who will submit to the rule of law, someone with real independence and unbending respect for the idea that is America. Gonzales must not be replaced by another crony or yes-man, because Americans have only those rights we can protect and defend, and another traitor in that lofty post is no protection at all.
Gonzales was more than a poor steward of this trust. He was a traitor among traitors. If the rule of law is to stand, the treason he helped commit must be ended, and a patriot must take his place.
