This blog follows immediately on the heels of the previous blog Zombies for what should be obvious reasons:
Rohm Emmanuel, mayor of Chicago and one time type A personality adviser/crony of the Obama administration – the “buck stops” at his desk as being the mayor.
Is anyone surprised by this latest example of governmental and law enforcement overreach?
I’m certainly not when you consider domestic spying, Gitmo, the Mayor of Chicago, and the manner in which the Constitution and Bill of Rights are being dismantled.
Factor in what is currently being referred to as Obamalaw that as I understand it seeks to federalize crimes and effectively remove the right of states to enact laws and adjudicate them and the message is all too clear – 1984 may have come and gone as a year in history but the dystopian future it spoke of is incrementally being delivered to each and every doorstep in this country.
USAG Holder is on his way out and one can assume this will be the final act of a deaf, dumb, and blind DOJ under his watch.
The Obama administration no doubt expecting a hailstorm of reaction for this proposed Obamalaw is playing it close to the vest for the time being and urging it’s supporters in the media to be receptive when the plan is announced.
Homan Square, equally repressive as the events and mindset that defined Tiananmen square.
I believe it was Benjamin Franklin who said to the effect that any who surrender a right or liberty for a perceived security deserve neither.
The Bush administration conducted an orchestrated effort to circumvent and subvert such liberties and rights, but it’s efforts pale in comparison to the current administrations – sort of a modification of the concept of “trickle down economics” to trickle down oppression.
