Open Letter to US Law Enforcement

Joe Giambrone
Activist Post

Who are you, really? And what exactly is your role in the bigger picture?

This is not an academic question, but goes to the heart of who is in charge and if they themselves are on the right side of the law. With numerous whistleblowers from the National Security Agency coming forth, as well as from the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, all of them exposing crimes committed by those in charge, you should pay special attention to what these individuals are saying about current so-called “leaders.”

Former President Richard Nixon once said, “Well, when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal.”

How many law enforcement officers would accept this excuse today? How many have already accepted it as a fact of the current United States system of “justice?”

The 4th Amendment of the US Constitution, in the Bill of Rights, is explicitly clear that a “warrant” is necessary to invade the personal effects of civilians. We are all mandated by the highest law in the land to be “secure” in our “persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.”

Government officials swear an oath of office to defend this Constitution, as you yourself have also probably done.

To knowingly, flagrantly and systematically violate this oath – in secret no less – is a grievous crime against the United States. To do it with impunity and protection from prosecution, however, is something else entirely. A government that does not respect the laws that it publicly swears to defend is a fraud and a tyranny.

To casually throw away the 4th Amendment, a bedrock freedom, the cornerstone of a free and open society, is not only unacceptable, it is Treason; the waging of a war against the People of the United States. By what right can Constitutionally guaranteed rights be deleted? These protections have served us for more than two centuries, and yet in the age of technology they are to be dismissed without debate, by secret decree? By memos that are classified “Top Secret” because they directly violate the Supreme Law of the Land?

Armies of police are to enforce these secret decrees as law and to assist the surveillance state without question?

Are we a nation of sovereign citizens or of human drones who execute instructions?

On April 19th of this year, the federal government “crossed the Rubicon” suspending the Constitution in Boston and ordering nearly 10,000 heavily armed troops to “lockdown” a major metropolitan city. Homes were searched without warrants and invaded at gunpoint by squads and platoons of officers, many of them from the local force who had been militarized and placed under the command of federal authorities. All this was done to apprehend a single injured suspect.

A Supreme Court decision already decided that the Constitution cannot be suspended no matter how inconvenient it may be perceived by those in power. In Ex parte Milligan (1866), the Court wrote:
The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times and under all circumstances. No doctrine involving more pernicious consequences was ever invented by the wit of man than that any of its provisions can be suspended during any of the great exigencies of government.
By testing this new suspension of the Constitution in the wake of the latest terrorism event in Boston, a cynical calculated play was made to convince people that the government somehow possessed the right to do so, when clearly no such right exists. This outright subversion of Constitutional protections was tested that day to see if it could set a precedent and be sold to the public on the basis of allegedly protecting them. This ploy used public perception as a means to subvert the law and to overturn the established restrictions on the government’s exercise of force here domestically against its own citizens in their homes!

This July 4th, 2013, it’s time to wake up and smell the clear felonies coming out of Washington DC. Crimes of this scale and sweeping nature threaten to turn America into George Orwell’s Big Brother police state. And law enforcement officers are not immune to the surveillance. Their privacy is no more protected than mine. Nor is the privacy of a Congressman or a Supreme Court Judge or even the head of the CIA, David Petraeus.

A high-level NSA whistleblower, a satellite analyst named Russell Tice, revealed:
[NSA] went after lawyers and law firms… They went after judges. One of the judges is now sitting on the Supreme Court that I had his wiretap information in my hand… They went after State Department officials. They went after people in the executive service that were part of the White House — their own people.
We are now a society wide open to blackmail. We are without privacy, and can be hacked at the will of secret, often private contractors, such as Edward Snowden’s recent employer. Mr. Snowden, remember, wasn’t working for the US government in an official capacity, but at the time was employed by a private corporation: Booz Allen Hamilton. Right now thousands of privately-paid computer “analysts” can wiretap anyone at their own discretion.

Edward Snowden said:
Any analyst at any time can target anyone. …I sitting at my desk certainly had the authorities to wiretap anyone, from YOU or your accountant to a federal judge to even the president if I had a personal email.
That means you, the reader, are also vulnerable. Your life is an open book, and should you in the future need to be coerced and blackmailed into silence or into acting in a particular manner, that can easily be arranged. Information from your digital presence and history across telephone, web, credit card and any other channel is now stored indefinitely by this emerging, unconstitutional surveillance state.

That is not freedom. That is not Constitutional governance. That is not the America I was taught about in school, as were you.

That is why the flag flies upside down here today.

I live according to the constitution, and that is what I will accept! I have a zero tolerance policy for a government that does not! And I will not support that government with anymore funding! Period!

The three most powerful words in the English language is the reason they do what they do.


Those words are justification for every immoral act done to their own friends and family. They shoot, they lie, they ignore the spirit of the law because: IT'S MY JOB.

One can be arrested for flying the flag upside down if the court or legal eagle decides there was no actual danger under Admiralty Laws;And the penalty can be very severe.
The reason for severity of crime is that any officer of US government and all official Institutions incorporated under our Federal System "MUST RESPOND TO SUCH A SIGNAL".
IT is an International signal of distress upon the high seas no matter the nations flag that it flys under.
THIS nations people cannot fly such a signal unless at sea and in immediate peril.

The Uniform Commercial Code is Maritime law. We all live under the UCC. Therefore we have the right to use that distress signal, not as a political statement, but as an actual call for help.
It is not misconstrued propaganda. It is defensible fact.

They need to be reminded. Great letter, a lot of them on our side. We shouldn't alienate them but remind them, as you have.

William Burke said...

"Did you actually post this?"

It's posted, isn't it? Or do you have an alternative-reality definition of 'posted'?

"What response did it get?"

Are you kidding? From WHOM?

There is no constitution anymore and you are a voice wailing in the wilderness for even referring to it. America is dead. Face it.

Time to learn why this happening... the constitution protects the corporation which OWNS you:

The "Flag" should also be at half mast while inverted.

I grew up believing the police were there to Protect and Serve. The question we need to ask ourselves today is who do they Protect and Serve?

Anonymous said...

Well, these are definitely the times the American flag should be displayed up-side-down!

Where do people with the attitude of Hide behind come from? The government flaunts the law freely and the sheeple think they have rights
