America: A Land Where Justice Is Absent
Paul Craig Roberts
America’s First Black President is a traitor to his race and also to justice.
Obama has permitted the corrupt US Department of Justice (sic), over which he wields authority, to overturn the ruling of a US Federal Court of Appeals that prisoners sentenced illegally to longer terms than the law permits must be released once the legal portion of their sentence is served. The DOJ, devoid of all integrity, compassion, and sense of justice, said that “finality” of conviction was more important than justice. Indeed, the US Justice (sic) Department’s motto is: “Justice? We don’t need no stinkin’ justice!”

The concept of “finality” was an invention of a harebrained Republican conservative academic lionized by the Republican Federalist Society. In years past conservatives believed—indeed, still do—that the criminal justice system coddles criminals by allowing too many appeals against their unlawful convictions. The appeals were granted by judges who thought that the system was supposed to serve justice, but conservatives demonized justice as something that enabled criminals. A succession of Republican presidents turned the US Supreme Court into an organization that only serves the interests of private corporations. Justice is nowhere in the picture.

In no way am I downplaying slavery or the Atlantic Slave Trade but what Andrew Jackson did was to free every American from slavery.
The slavery I speak of is tax and debt slavery to the Rothschild central banksters.
Jackson's motto was "Jackson and No Bank".
He called them a "den of vipers".
Jackson did what no other President nor individual has done beforehand or since, he successfully fought the establishment of a for-profit, central bank.
It took them decades before they were able to pass the Federal Reserve and IRS Act.
Ron Paul is the only person since Jackson whos come close to freeing us from their stranglehold.
Ron Paul - “It is no coincidence that the century of total war coincided with the century of central banking".
