- The Statute of Limitations
- In common law there is something called 'the statute
of limitations,' which is there to prevent people from being eternally
held liable for things that they have done in the past. When a crime is
committed or a mistake made, the citizen has a right to challenge anything
except murder, when and if a 'charge' comes up that exceeds seven years
after the fact of whatever happened. That was the law until the U.S.A.
Patriot Act was quietly passed. Under the old rules anyone could be questioned
about whether or not they had ever been convicted of a crime, and those
convictions could be used to deny employment and or qualification for
any number of things. But anything less that a conviction was not required
to be listed, by the applicant, as part of their personal history.
- After 911, the government has opened those formerly closed
books which are kept on all criminal and civil activity in which anything
that any person might have been loosely associated with, in any way,
might now be used against them when it comes to anything that might be
construed as having any bearing whatsoever on 'national security.'
- In effect what this invasion of personal privacy does,
strips anyone of any finality, when it comes to their personal standing
before any form of authority in any situation which the government might
feel the need to fully investigate anyone with a supposedly clean record
of past behavior.
- This 'special treatment' includes your personal medical
records, as well as your financial records and all personal contacts that
can and in many cases have been traced by the government 24-7, since
2001 when Bush gave himself permission to violate the law, in collusion
with the major communications giants. One consequence of this illegal
act was to cloud the credibility of anyone with a history of mental difficulties,
drug use or abuse, and or any other 'problems-with-authority' that might
arise in the course of trying to survive in the speed-of-light society
in which zero tolerance has taken precedence over following the strict
requirements of settled law. That means when a problem arises, the individual
must prove (again) that he or she is innocent of allegations contained
in their own records. This ought to be a crime, but instead it has become
standard operating procedure when it comes to ordinary people appearing
on any number of various lists: including the no-fly list.
- Having a clean record is important to those applying
for anything; yet the opposite is true of those applying for high government
positions. Being a politician for instance requires a closet full of
skeletons (and a bank vault full of money), before anyone can be taken
seriously as a candidate for anything major. A checkered-past is actually
beneficial to politicians, whereas citizens that have not tried to stretch
the laws are automatically totally unqualified for high office.
- In life people want to know something about those they
might need to trust-yet in political life that qualification has not only
been dropped but is vigorously kept hidden by the press and by those
to whom the candidates would of necessity be loyal to, after the office
is obtained. In business one would never hire known criminals unless they
are planning to embark upon a criminal enterprise; yet government hires
virtually no one but criminals to do our bidding for us.
- How else can this be seen, when we hire people to oversee
agencies that actually do the opposite of what the supposed agency was
created to do to protect the public! Why then are government officials
never charged for the crimes they commit-while the public is rigorously
prosecuted for virtually any infraction of every one of the thousands
of minor laws which we are all supposedly subject to?
- When major crimes are the topic, there is no felony involved
in most white-collar crimes because that privilege is reserved for the
little people who cannot afford the heavy-hitting legal defense teams
needed to defeat the charges. So the public now must live in limbo, never
knowing when some detail of something decades old might be dregged up
to color some action that the government might want to block that individual
from taking: While the government can do whatever it wants, despite the
laws, in order to stay in power and to keep the public from objecting
to their illegal and outrageous crimes, (both national and international).
- This is being done in our names, because the 'government'
is supposed to be "We the People" through our elected representatives.
But the truth is those in office at the top were not elected, and those
who were, serve masters other than the people they supposedly represent!
When the facts finally do surface about the lies told in order to get
elected, such as a false biography, and-or criminal associations that
in some cases go back decades-nothing is ever done to the office-holder,
and no "responsibility" for the deceptions and lies is ever
laid against that high government official or corporate officer-aside
from the pitiful few.
- Here is the price that we pay for the lies that we tolerate!
- Corporations too seem to enjoy near total immunity from
both consequences and the need to maintain a responsible record: This
ought to be a requirement of their corporate charters, but in most cases
it is not, because it might interfere in the scale of the profits to be
earned, which is the sole point for the formation of most corporations
in the first place. So neither the government nor the corporations need
worry about their criminal past, while the public must consider every
act they've ever committed when and if they ever find themselves in the
clutches of the Thought Police that will rule this country once the Senate
passes the other half of that legislation-probably right after the November
selections process is complete.
- When the government or the Corporations lie, whether
to sell a product or a war, millions if not billions of people are directly
affected-yet no laws are enforced regarding these huge and massively
costly Lies. Instead their crimes are termed "political" and
therefore are permissible as they were done to serve "some higher
purpose" such as "the national security interests of the United
States." Yet the prisons are overflowing with small-time criminals
and only about 10% of those locked up, have any real reason for being
- We established the Code of Law to protect the innocent
as well as to punish the guilty; yet these 'laws' do not apply to corporations
or apparently to government officials: they only apply to common people,
people of color, people without connections, people that are in Henry
Kissinger's words only "useless eaters." In brief, anyone with
connections need never fear prosecution or prison; and even if there is
a conviction they can always be pardoned. If they are not high enough
to warrant a pardon then they serve out some mild sentence in a country-club
prison where they can play tennis, swim, and compose their memoirs. These
crimes cost us billions of dollars, in the case of the criminal attack
upon Iraq that will eventually cost us three-trillion- dollars, and no
one will be charged with any part of this catastrophic war-crime, from
the torture to the maiming and displacement as well as the killing of
millions of people!
- This war-in-Iraq is now in its sixth year, in this latest
iteration, having been nothing more than a continuation of the 1991 war
on Iraqhosted by Poppy Bush & Bill Clinton for twelve very long years-eighteen
years of WAR and Iraq is still not conquered, but the profits for the
criminals has never been greater!
- Given the facts that are now part of history, how much
should the use of these lies cost those, who used them, to create their
mega- profits and confound the rest of the world! No politician of any
high political standing wants to Impeach anyone for anything; in fact
almost to a person they all swear publicly to support the Madness-of-Israel
in its own little quest to destroy the world; and Israel insists that
we pay for all this in Euros, not the now worthless U.S. dollars.
- The former United States is being led around by the nose
by an outlaw state that has never kept her word, broken most of the agreements
she has signed, and Israel has abstained from the IAEA while insisting
that Iran be prosecuted by the world, for daring to legally pursue Nuclear
Energy as a legitimate alternative to oil. Mossad agents were doing many
of the interviews inside Abu Ghraib, they had agents in New York city
on 911, as observers and possibly as participants; but the FBI flew those
Israeli's that were detained out of the country, without questioning them
concerning their presence here on that day. Israel is as complicit in
the events of 911 as any of the other official suspects, and yet they
have somehow now become more important than any other ally we have- why
is that! The only consolation is that universally there is no statute
of limitation for murder, much less mass murder or crimes against humanity!
- By the same token the real problem for most Americans
is that there is also no reprieve from this fascist police state which
we have allowed our country to become! When 'justice' is no longer even
remotely available and the criminals are running the government and the
business of the world: there will be a backlash and it will not be orderly,
but it will end this tyranny at last!
