Obama's Drone Strike Policy: 'This Is the Power Claimed by Kings and Tyrants'

Judge Andrew Napolitano, said on Fox Business Network that the Justice Department has "resisted in every forum" attempts to gain access to the legal opinions that the drone policy is based on. He said the government has persuaded judges that releasing the information could threaten national security.

"Suddenly it shows up in an NBC newsroom earlier this week! It could only have come from a governmental source. So they really have made fools of the federal judges who've spent hours and days and weeks struggling over the laws involved here," said Napolitano, who called the document itself "breathtaking and chilling" because of the power it grants the government.

"It says 'any informed high-level U.S. government official can strip an American of his or her constitutional protections and order the killing of that American if the person is overseas, if it's difficult to arrest that person," said Napolitano, explaining that the memo does not clearly define what "imminent danger" to the United States means.

"This is the power claimed by kings and tyrants. This is about as un-American a power as one could imagine," he said.

Our government claims all power and all authority which power and authority were never vested in them of granted to them either by we the people or by God Himself in whom does vest all power and authority not only here on earth but in heaven also. Acting as god governments have placed themselves on a collision course with the almighty God. This is a collision which will have national and international impact since governments all over the world also claim this same power and authority. Drone attacks are simply another symptom of a much greater problem, a denial of the God who created the heavens and the earth and all that is in them.

The only differences between Presidents. Tyrants and Captains of Finance and Indusrry and their arch enemies of Pirates, Smugglers, Murders and thieves, is the size of their Army and Navies.
There is no difference betwee the leadership of either groupings except maybe by birth and if the leaders of either group were to change places they would fit in nicely with their new companions.
At least within the leaderships there is allowed some individual attributes to be retained by how they wield the power there is no difference at all between the societys they rule over for their corruption is even worse than that of their leaders
For at least the leadership knows just what they are while their followers only know what their leaders let them be.
I once asked God, Goddesses, and The Almighty Three in One when would they get off their asses and lead once again instead of just laying about folowing what man does disinterestedly.
I am left without knowing as no reply has yet been made so I guess until one comes we on earth must go on alone fighting Presidents, Tyrants, Pirates, Captains of finance and industry as they got about their murdering and thieving ways.

Well stated, Judge. I'm glad we have you to analyze the unconstitutionality of the things this regime is doing. Keep up the good fight.
