Can't arrest him - no evidence he's committed any crime. So how to silence him?
They were talking about the hero and martyr Anwar al-Awlaki. But they might as well have been talking about me.
In the wake of the murder of al-Awlaki, and the even more gruesome murder of the Bill of Rights, it's clear that all bets are off. There is no longer a shred of legitimacy to the so-called "government of the United States." It's a bunch of gangsters, pure and simple.
How do you deal with gangsters, murderers, and bullies, in an environment where the rule of law is gone? You shoot them in the back the second you have the chance. It's the only way to protect yourself.
Anything else I could say on this topic would probably be inadvisable. So I'll turn it over to my fellow Veterans Today columnist, Allen Roland, who will be my guest on Truth Jihad Radio this Wednesday, October 5th, 2-3 pm Central.
From Allen Roland's new column "And We Thought We Were Free"
Let’s talk about our rapidly disappearing Civil Liberties and the fact that protecting individual rights and liberties has been at the very bottom of the totem pole for the Obama administration as it was with the Cheney/Bush administration. President Obama has blatantly not only failed to close Guantanamo Bay, as he promised, but has continued warrantless surveillance and military tribunals and still exercises his Bush inherited right to kill US citizens that he views as terrorists ~ as witness the recent drone assassination of American born US citizen Al Awlaki on September 30th in Yemen.
Please note that no effort was made to indict Al Awlaki for any crimes despite ( a report last October that the Obama administration was “considering” indicting him). Despite substantial doubt among Yemen experts about whether he even had any operational role in Al Qaeda, despite the fact that no evidence (as opposed tounverified government accusations) was presented of his guilt.
As such, this assassination of a US citizen is an act of intimidation (meant to send a message to the masses) and the fall out is always increased warnings and then a decrease in civil liberties and freedom. (Reuters) - The State Department issued a worldwide travel alert on Saturday warning of the possibility of anti-American attacks in response to the killing of two top al Qaeda members,including Al Awlaki.
Remember, this extrajudicial assassination of an American citizen was carried out by our Nobel Peace Prize winner ~ President Barack Obama. In that regard, Jonathan Turley, LA Times, feels that President Obama may be the most disastrous president in our history in terms of civil liberties;
“Protecting individual rights and liberties - apart from the right to be tax-free - seems barely relevant to candidates or voters. One man is primarily responsible for the disappearance of civil liberties from the national debate, and he is Barack Obama. While many are reluctant to admit it, Obama has proved a disaster not just for specific civil liberties but the civil liberties cause in the United States… Soon after his election, various military and political figures reported that Obama reportedly promised Bush officials in private that no one would be investigated or prosecuted for torture. In his first year, Obama made good on that promise, announcing that no CIA employee would be prosecuted for torture. Later, his administration refused to prosecute any of the Bush officials responsible for ordering or justifying the program and embraced the "just following orders" defence for other officials, the very defence rejected by the United States at the Nuremberg trials after World War II.”

But Turley makes the valid point that the seeming liberal indifference to Obama’s betrayal of civil rights and liberties could well be a classic case of the Stockholm Syndrome ~ in which the hostage bonds with his captor despite the obvious threat to his existence much as Germany once did to Hitler’s persona and fascism in the midst of an economic depression;
“Even though many Democrats admit in private that they are shocked by Obama's position on civil liberties, they are incapable of opposing him. Some insist that they are simply motivated by realism: A Republican would be worse. However, realism alone cannot explain the utter absence of a push for an alternative Democratic candidate or organized opposition to Obama's policies on civil liberties in Congress during his term. It looks more like a cult of personality. Obama's policies have become secondary to his persona.”
Mayer’s book describes the slow but sure seduction of the German people as their civil liberties, freedoms and moral values were gradually stripped away by Hitler’s fascist government while waving the flag of national security and patriotism....
