U.S. one step closer to civil war

 By Mark Luedtke

The U.S. has moved one step closer to civil war with the release of a 16-page Justice Department rationalization in support of the president assassinating Americans. The Washington Post explains how our rulers justify this immoral and illegal policy, “The document says that the use of lethal force would not violate the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution when a targeted person is an operational leader of an enemy force and an informed, high-level government official has determined that he poses an imminent threat of violent attack against the U.S.” Laws are for serfs, not rulers.

Pharaoh Obama refuses to communicate his strategy for assassinating Americans. We should trust his divine judgment, thank him for assassinating our fellow citizens and kiss his ring, or else. Forget about that power corrupts stuff.

The Post also provides a sneak peek into what we can expect in the future, “The 16-page document says it is lawful to target al-Qaeda-linked U.S. citizens if they pose an ‘imminent’ threat of violent attack against Americans, and that delaying action against such people would create an unacceptably high risk. Such circumstances may necessitate expanding the concept of imminent threat, the memo says.” Talk about vague. This memo was designed so the government could expand on every concept in it at will.

For example, Timothy McVeigh, a militia movement sympathizer, committed the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil before 9/11. A leaked report from the Department of Homeland Security fusion center in Missouri, “specifically describes supporters of presidential candidates Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin and Bob Barr as ‘militia’ influenced terrorists and instructs the Missouri police to be on the lookout for supporters displaying bumper stickers and other paraphernalia associated with the Constitutional, Campaign for Liberty and Libertarian parties.” Fusion center is a euphemism for the DHS taking control of state and local police to spy on and intimidate Americans. If the Justice Department can rationalize assassinating Americans involved with al-Qaeda, it can rationalize assassinating members of U.S. militia groups – and libertarians – with the stroke of a pen. Given the drug war in Mexico is bleeding, literally as well as figuratively, across the U.S. border, it can justify assassinating drug dealers. When the government orders every American to turn in his guns, the government can paint all gun owners who refuse as terrorists and assassinate them, too. Once government justifies the assassination of one American for any reason, it can justify assassinating any American for any reason.

The Post assuages us by reporting, “The memo does not require the U.S. to have information about a specific imminent attack against the U.S. But it does require that capture of a terrorist suspect not be feasible and that any such lethal operation by the United States targeting a person comply with fundamental law-of-war principles.” As if the government obeys the law. As if the ruling weren’t intentionally, absurdly vague. All the government needs is for some well-paid expert to declare any capture attempt too risky, even inside the U.S. Besides which, this aspect of the justification can be erased at any time, but I doubt that will be necessary.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) finds it hard to believe this report was produced in a democracy. I don’t. This justification is just one of many connected policies that proves the U.S. is preparing to wage a shooting war on the American people. DHS has purchased 1.6 billion bullets. It’s also purchased bullet resistant checkpoint booths. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is setting up roadblocks in Tennessee, “News Channel 5 in Nashville, Tenn., has announced that Tennessee is the official inaugural state for the launch of TSA’s new Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) program, which will be setting up security checkpoints along interstates to conduct random (illegal) searches of vehicles.” The Federal Aviation Administration is allowing drones over the U.S. They’ll soon be armed.

Obama’s proposed gun ban has nothing to do with the safety of the people. Obama knows gun control laws always produce increased crime. Furthermore, government’s police state can’t stem the constant flow of consumable drugs into the hands of criminals, let alone stop a criminal from gaining access to guns that last a lifetime. Disarming criminals is impossible. Obama’s proposed ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines is designed to take away the best tools Americans have for defending themselves against stormtroopers. Obama loves guns, but only in the hands of his stormtroopers.

For those people who think assassinating Americans is OK because they never do anything wrong, local government paramilitary forces routinely break into the wrong houses in drug raids. Botched drug raids are so common that Cato keeps an interactive map of them. The bureaucrats in Washington, with more power and further divorced from the people they prey on, will blunder more frequently and violently. Blunders like that are why U.S. troops kill so many women, children and non-combatants overseas, and one reason those people hate us and want to kill us.

Look at the violence in Europe. It’s coming here, but much worse.

    This is just one of many tentacles from the socialist, Marxist elements in the current administration to degrade and corrupt the U.S. Constitution.

    Along with gun control, denying rights to the GLBT community, denying the right to privacy among many other rights we have.

    As Americans no matter our political, religious, personal beliefs, if we do not stand together to stop this corruptions, none of us will have rights in a police state.
    My 2 cents.
