In Amerika Law No Longer Exists: "anonymous experts" and the extermination of truth

In the 21st century Americans have experienced an extraordinary collapse in the rule of law and in their constitutional protections. Today American citizens, once a free people protected by law, can be assassinated and detained in prison indefinitely without any evidence being presented to a court of their guilt, and they can be sentenced to prison on the basis of secret testimony by anonymous witnesses not subject to cross examination. The US “justice system” has been transformed by the Bush/Obama regime into the ”justice system” of Gestapo Germany and Stalinist Russia. There is no difference.

In an article available here, Stephen Downs, formerly Chief Attorney with the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct and Kathy Manley, a criminal defense attorney and member of the New York Civil Liberties Union, report on how the US government destroyed a charity, the Holy Land Foundation, which provided money for feeding the poor and for building schools and hospitals in Palestine.

The charity, aware of the perils of being based in the US and doing anything for Palestinians, relied on the US State Department and the US Department of Justice (sic) for guidance on where to send humanitarian aid. The charity sent its aid to the same aid committees in Palestine that the US Agency for International Development and the UN used to distribute aid to the Palestinians.

In the first trial of the Holy Land Foundation, the US government admitted that none of the charity’s donations had gone to terrorist organizations, and the federal prosecutors failed to achieve a conviction. So the prosecutors tried the charity again.

In the second trial, the judge permitted the prosecutors to call an “anonymous expert” to tell the jury that some of the committees used by USAID and the UN and approved by the US Department of State were controlled by Hamas, the elected government of Palestine that Israel requires the US government to brand as “terrorist.”

As Downs and Manley point out, an “anonymous expert” cannot “be challenged because he is unknown.” There cannot be a cross examination. The “expert” could be anyone–someone paid to lie to the jury, a Jew who believes all help to Palestinians comprises “aid to terrorists,” or a member of Mossad, the Israeli intelligence service that has thoroughly infiltrated the US according to US intelligence experts.

Injustices are everywhere, the authors admit, so why is this important to you? The answer is that the due process clause of the US Constitution requires that criminal laws give fair notice as to what conduct is prohibited. According to Downs and Manley, the Holy Land Foundation followed the US State Department’s list of designated terrorist organizations and avoided all contact with organizations on the list, but were indicted and convicted regardless. This tells us that federal prosecutors are viciously corrupt and that jurors are so inept and propagandized that they are useless to defendants.

The US Supreme Court refused to review this most blatant case of wrongful conviction. By so doing, the US Supreme Court established that the court, like the US House of Representatives, the US Senate, and the executive branch, is not only a servant of the police state but also a servant of Israel and supports the destruction of the Palestinians by designating aid to Palestine as an act of terrorism.

What this means for you is that your involvement in legal transactions or associations can be declared ex post facto by secret witnesses to be criminal involvements. The criminality of your past behavior can now be established, according to Downs and Manley, by “anonymous experts,” mouthpieces for the government prosecutors who cannot “be confronted or cross-examined within the meaning of the 6th Amendment.”

Downs and Manley write:
The implications are enormous. The government can now criminalize political, religious and social ideology and speech. Donating to peace groups, participating in protests, attending church, mosque or synagogue, entertaining friends, and posting material on the Internet, for example, could later be found to be illegal because of ‘associations,’ manufactured by anonymous experts, which in some way allegedly support designated terrorist organizations one has never heard of.
The authors could have added that if the government wants to get you, all it has to do is to declare that someone or some organization somewhere in your past was connected in a vague undefined way with terrorism. The government’s assertion suffices. No proof is needed. The brainwashed jury will not protect you.

Be prepared in the next year or two for all criticism of “our freedom and democracy” government to be shut down. In Amerika, truth is about to be exterminated.

People need to realize that the justice system is non-existent, for the most part. It is more apt to be called the "JUST US" system and it is really set up to work against the citizens, contrary to what people have been conditioned to believe.

Let's take a look at a something many do not like to acknowledge >>> REALITY

- The police officer who writes you a ticket or arrest you - works for the STATE

- The attorney that you hire - is Licensed by the STATE

- The prosecutor who wants to put you in jail/prison - works for the STATE

- The Judge who oversees the court proceedings - works for the STATE

- The jail/prison that you go to - all employees there - work for the STATE

- The probation/parole officer that you get assigned to - works for the STATE

See, the system is set up to benefit the STATE. If there were very few arrest, it would not be good for the "JUST US" system. It would not be good for the pay, career, pensions/retirement for the employees of the STATE. It is in their best interest to create/work in a POLICE STATE...the more arresting/jailing of the citizens, the more secure their jobs are.

Sadly, most people still believe that the employees of the STATE are here to "SERVE & PROTECT" or represent we, the people. The REALITY of it is, they are not! Occasionally, just like the random winner at a casino, a citizen may get real justice in the "JUST US" system, but in REALITY, it is rare.

WAKE UP folks!

If you're going to include Germany in the lawless mix, better include the Allies during and after WWII.

Let me mention "The Bombing of Dresden" for one, and the horrenous rapes of women and girls after the war, and the ALlies bringing in African Senegalese Troops and encouraging them to this crime. As well, as Eisenhowers Death Camps."

Better include the U.S. and U.K. handing the ENTIRE E. Eur. to the Communists. Now THAT was the real HELL ON EARTH.

Might as well throw in Mao's China,
- the slaughter the Americans did in VietNam (2-3 Million farmers in their oen country, too)
- Laos
-the horrors of the "Killing Fields, in Cambodia," too.

-THrow in the ongoing Palestinian Genocide by the Israelis

- Thros in Afghanistan and Iraq (the NERVE of the invasion of Sovereing countries, and the locals only fighting against their invaders)
put in Libya, and now Syria- and now Lebanon, AGAIN, - by U.S. -rael.- NATO.

And Mali. etc, etc.

Or did you think the only Genocide was in WWII, and then it stopped?

I fail to understand why people even talk about this stuff. NOBODY is going to do anything to stop it. In fact it can't be stopped. It's too late. If there was a chance of it being stopped the government terrorists would simply nuke the entire planet. If they can't have it their way, then everybody dies, including them.

Nobody dare call it Zionism. Zionism has D E S T R O Y E D the United States.

Now, I didn't say Jews destroyed the United States, I said ZIONISM destroyed the United States. Many Jews are victims of Zionism just as everybody else is. But there can be NO DOUBT that the Zionist Jews at the top are pulling the strings even if it means killing their own to achieve their ends. Kill 1 Jew, kill a Million, and they WILL do it if it achieves their ends.

Right is Might!
In the begginings of the structure of society they were subjected to brutal and blind force, afterwards to law which the same only disguised. I draw the conclusion by the law of nature right lies in force. The word right is an abstract thought and means give me what I wan't in order that I thereby may prove I am stronger than you. A new right emerges that of the strong.

The political has nothing in common with the moral. A ruler who is governed by the moral is not a skillful politicians, thereby unstable upon his thrown. He must have recourse to cunning and make believe.

The principle factor involved in the political is the secrecy of it's undertakings. The word shall not agree with the deeds of the diplomat.

Only force conquers in political affairs, not accademic discussions.

He that owns the gold makes the rules. He that has the biggest stick makes the rules.

The political hacks in Washingon are pawns of the international finance hyenas.

The world is governed by very different personages from what is immagined by those who are not behind the scenes.

The shadow government is the International Bankers in collusion with the Elite Politicians, bankers and industrilist.

It's called intrinsic and constructive fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, counterfeiting and check kiting.

The International Bankers have abscounded with the National Treasury and usurped the people's wealth.

The average working stiff cannot afford to buy gold due to the devaluation of the dollar has led to hyperinflation.

The NWO is the Neo Feudal System.

Federal Reserve Notes stupidly called money are bills of credit.

The debt surf slaves are holding non redeemable paper notes that are instrinsically worthles and are issued by the Federal Reserve, a private banking syndicate. A consortium of Multi International Mega Banking Corporations that own shares of stock in the Federal Reserve as well as the Central Banks and only look out for the interest of their shareholders.

There is no accountability nor is there any transparency. They are hidden behind a cloak of secrecy. The Federa Reserve has never been fully audited nor has the gold that suppose to be stored at Fort Knox which I double is even there any more because it has been mortgaged to the bankers. The gold that is stored in the vaults in the Federal Reserve Bank in New York has never been audited either.

The spoon fed circus main stream news media keeps telling the public about this over 16 trillion dollar debt that the U.S. owes. My question to the so called congressmen in Washington that are suppose to be representing the American People, but in all actuality are ownly representing themselves and special interest, how much money does the foreign government owe the U.S.? Or is that a secret also?

The method by which you control the masses is to keep them in ignorance and in debt!

Freedom is the right to do that which the law alows! Law is open to interpretation. Man made law is in the grey area. God's law is either black or white. This country was founded by Christian men on constitutional principles. The only laws that we have to obey is: 1-The 10 commandments. 2-The constitution of the U.S. 3-Public health and safety laws.

I completely disagree with the assessment that laws no longer exist in Amerika. In fact there have never been more laws, persecution and repression via the judiciary in Amerika than today. And jails filled with 2 million people for something as trivial as having a marijuana joint in their pocket prove it. That the same laws don't apply to the oligarchy and that they exist in complete anarchy is another story.

Police tried to give me a ticket for smoking a cigarette on the strand of Venice Beach California!! I told them we were going to fight, and then they could make some real money off me.
I didn't get the ticket :)

Mr. Roberts did not write that "laws" don't exist. He wrote that "Law" doesn't exist. That is not the same thing.

I have made full use of the window of free speech still left on the internet, as this web site does, posting comments uncensored.Mordor is everywhere, and genuinely respectable honesty and the Truths it professes is cast to the ground.Right is wrong and wrong is right, but they better bring thier lunch, they have a Just God to fight.There is a line in the sand of time, the abomination of desolation, when the Almighty takes the gloves off. The wicked will not repent and they will be destroyed from the earth in God's time. Endure to the end.
