Warning To The World
About The New America
[ Also 'playing in a theatre near you' in Canada ! ]
For years I have told Americans to wake up and see what was happening to their country before it was too late for America. Now it is time for me to tell the world to wake up about America before it is too late for them.
I have been aware of a disturbing change in the US government for the last 12 years. It seems that the world has slept through this change and does not realize what America has become. I will outline some major problems, go into specific subjects and cite examples of how America has changed, yes, we are indeed no longer free. Much of what is written in this report is from my own personal experience.
This is a warning to the world to watch out for the new America. America is no longer the moral guardian you knew it to be, in recent years America has become a tyrant unprecedented.
Some of the most eloquent words ever written in jurisprudence were penned recently by one of the most august courts in the world. Unfortunately these words were not written to heap praise on a government, they were written to chastise it for breaking a sacred oath to defend freedom and democracy.
It is generally understood that there are three levels of government commonly referred to as the executive, the legislative, and the judiciary. Their purpose is to serve the less commonly understood fourth level of government - the citizenry. Unwieldy, it is frequantly disregarded as the source of the other three. It is, however, the raison d'etre of civilization.
The Lord's court in England has determined that the executive has broken faith with the citizenry and violated its fiduciary duty to safeguard its most fundamental responsibility - preserving the rights and freedoms of its people.
Should a legislature exceed its mandate to provide representation and proceed upon a path of domination, the contract with the citizenry must be regarded as null and void. The citizenry is obligated at that point to direct and control its own destiny. Its first duty being to absolve itself from the executive and legislative branches should they not correct themselves.
This is a long and arduous process that encourages great risk, but as The Lords clearly express, Parliament has embarked on a path akin to Stalinist Russia - the antithesis of the right to liberty.
It seems unlikely the executive and to some extant the legislative branches are ignorant of this movement to tyranny. It can only be assumed to be the policy of the present occupants of these high offices. No better understanding of this process was ever stated except as follows:
"We enter parliament in order to supply ourselves, in the arsenal of democracy, with its own weapons...If democracy is so stupid as to give us free tickets and salaries for this bear's work, that is its affair...We do not come as friends, nor even as neutrals. We come as enemies. As the wolf bursts among the flock, so we come."
Goebbels (German Propaganda Minister) 1928
Such be the case, it is the duty of the true members of this parliament to repeal or at the very least let the sun set on our anti-terrorism laws. To identify the wolves, their opinions on these oppressive laws should make them readily apparent.
In the 14th century these same issues existed in what are commonly called the crusades. There was a muslim conspiracy to use lepers to poison the waters in France. The lepers were rounded up and savagely put to death. Place antrax and Al Quada into the modern version, and it becomes clearly evident that mankind has learned absolutely nothing in seven centuries. Do remember the anthrax was traced from a lot at Fort Detrick, Md.; and the CIA manufactured Al Quada - a rather poor application of the Hegelian Dialectic.
The substance of the British case centred on the sending of boots, sleeping bags, and communications equipment to Chechnya. Heinous crimes I must admit, but hardly the grounds for indefinite incarceration. People in war zones should get accustomed to treading barefoot and sleeping in the cold. If you need to co-ordinate trips around combatants for food, water, and medicine too bad.
In my own country, 84 year old women have had their cash seized. None of us can ever be safe when the geritol set are carrying large sums of cash. I remember my grandfather telling me the primary reason the boys volunteered for D-Day was to stop those evil seniors from excercising democratic rights and freedoms.
If thieves use as their license when judges steal, the oppressed will use as their license when judges repeal, the citizens will use as their license when forced to kneel.
Lord Hoffman: "The real threat to the life of the nation, in the sense of a people living in accordance with its traditional laws and political values, comes not from the terrorism but from laws such as these."
Lord Bingham: "The Attorney General is fully entitled to insist on the proper limits of judicial authority, but he is wrong to stigmatise judicial decision making as in some way undemocratic."
Lord Scott: "Indefinite imprisonment...on grounds not disclosed, is the stuff of nightmares associated with France before and during the revolution, with Soviet Russia during the Stalinist era and now associated as a result of Section 23 of the 2001 Terror Act with the United Kingdom."
Lady Hale: "It is not for the executive to decide who is locked up for any length of time, let alone indefinitely. Only the courts can do that...executive detention is the antithesis of the right to liberty."

I agree with you, EastCoastKid. This is insanity.
The thing that keeps popping into my head is how the generation of Vietnam gave a damn. Americans are not killers of the unarmed. We are not torturers. We are not Imperialists. People like this may exist in America, but such is not the American way.
Gone are the times when simple, working-class men like Thomas Paine could influence his countrymen with brilliant literary essays like "Common Sense", "The Rights of Man", and "The Age Reason". The Lincoln-Douglass presidential debates, of which a single debate would last for hours and exhaust every conceivable issue in politics, would bring to shame the superficial, puerile squabbling of modern-day presidential candidates. Virtually every influence during that period, from domination to rebellion, was fueled by the power of the pen. In an environment that had not yet been polluted by addictive imagery and music, the voice of the people was established through the medium of the written word. And then came television.
. And as far as our english brethren are concerned......you'd be living in a dramaticly different world and speaking German if it wasn't for us.
