As former White House chief of staff and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has said: “You never let a serious crisis go to waste.” While everyone was worried about the hurricanes, U.S. President Donald Trump signed away the Fourth Amendment buried in a new bill. He set a precedent by empowering the police state to allow warrantless searches in parts of VA, MD and D.C. near the Metro train system.
The government can now openly enter and search private property without a warrant in parts of Virginia, Maryland and D.C.
The House Joint Resolution 76 was signed into law on Tuesday, Aug. 22, by President Trump. The text is rather boring, starting off with: “Granting the consent and approval of Congress for the Commonwealth of Virginia, the State of Maryland, and the District of Columbia to enter into a compact relating to the establishment of the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission.”
CNN explained, “This law lets Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia form a new panel called the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission to oversee the safety of the D.C.-area public transportation Metro train system.”
The new safety commission will take over from the current Federal Transit Agency (FTA), which has been in charge of safety oversight for the Washington Metropolitan Area Interstate Compact (WMATA) since October 2015.
“We’ll set this up and get the FTA out of Metro. They are happy to get out, and we’re happy to get them out,” Metro Board of Directors Chair Jack Evans told Bloomberg BNA. “I’m glad we got this thing. If nothing else, we’ll get our money.”
However, buried within the bill’s text is a daunting “one major red flag” that would give the newly formed commission “the authority to enter property near the Metro Rail System ‘without limitation’ and without a warrant, for the purpose of ‘making inspections, investigations, examinations, and testing,” The Free Thought Project reported.
The legislation reads:
In performing its duties, the Commission, through its Board or designated employees or agents, may: Enter upon the WMATA Rail System and, upon reasonable notice and a finding by the chief executive officer that a need exists, upon any lands, waters, and premises adjacent to the WMATA Rail System, including, without limitation, property owned or occupied by the federal government, for the purpose of making inspections, investigations, examinations, and testing as the Commission may deem necessary to carry out the purposes of this MSC Compact, and such entry shall not be deemed a trespass.
Only five Congressman voted against the bill according to U.S. Rep Justin Amash (R-Mich.) while three hundred ninety-nine gave their approval, and 29 didn’t bother to vote at all. Apparently, our elected officials can’t be bothered to stand up for the rights of we the people or the Constitution they swore to protect. After all, the Fourth Amendment doesn’t exist, which protects Americans from unreasonable searches and seizures or anything. As Amash pointed out, the government will now be able to kick in the doors of any private property surrounding the border of the DC Metro Rail System without needing a warrant based on any probable cause.
Only 5 of us voted against bill allowing govt to enter/search private property in parts of VA, MD & DC w/o warrant. https://t.co/SVhTWqbPaB

A scary prospect indeed, as Rachel Blevins wrote for The Free Thought Project, “While it may only affect the Washington, D.C., metro area now, it could be laying the blueprint for future legislation across the country.”

Hmm… Think it’s a coincidence that DC is between the Virgin(ia) – DC – Mary(land)? Yes, DC is sitting between Virgin Mary. Here is some history and more evidence that all roads really do lead to Rome.
Father Andrew White, S.J. (Society of Jesus, aka the Jesuits), “the Apostle of Maryland”, was the first priest to visit this region: in 1639 he established a mission at Kittamaquund, a few miles below Washington, and, with solemn ceremony, baptized the tayac, or “Emperor of Piscataway”.
Father Andrew White was a Jesuit priest who had learned some of the native language and who wanted to teach the Indians about his “Christian” beliefs.He also carried the Church still nearer to Washington. The “Annual Letter” for 1641 mentions that the King of the Anacostans was a most promising candidate for baptism. The tribe from which the Anacostia River (eastern branch) is named, dwelt in the immediate neighborhood, and on the site of the national capital: so that the history of Catholicism in the District is traced back to the earliest days of Lord Baltimore’s Colony.
As settlements advanced up the country from lower Maryland, a fair proportion of those who acquired land in what is now the District were Catholics. In 1669 “a parcel of land called Rome was laid out for Francis Pope (you can’t make this stuff up, folks) extending to the south of an inlet called Tiber”. This gentleman, “Pope of Rome on the Tiber”, was sheriff of Charles County, and a Catholic. The well-known Catholic families of Carroll, Digges, Queen, and Young were the possessors of extensive landed estates before the American Revolution.
An interesting collection of vestments, altar furnishings, chalices etc., relics of those stations and memorials of the old Jesuit missions, is preserved in the museum of Georgetown (Jesuit) College. Consider all the politicians and persons of power that attended Catholic Jesuit Universities and you will see that the leaders of the US bow to the Vatican, which claims to own the entire universe including us.
Wow! Catholics sneaking onto our shores! With allegiance to the VATICAN even!
Sure, Trump bows to the Vatican. I’m sure the Catholics being run out of leadership over Baltimore, the Klan persecuting Catholics or the “Catholics need not apply” on businesses was the Vatican’s order and the presidents of the time had to obey. You are mental cases who believe that.
BTW, the Catholic Church was the one Christ established with his Apostles, as read in Scripture. History records the succession of popes since St. Peter. He did not start the other ones thereafter.
The Vatican is a government body. The Papal City is a country. I am not religious, but there is a reason why the catholics aren’t trusted by a lot of people. Not that I trust any other religious body either. Catholics aren’t supposed to wear their “uniforms” in Mexico because of all the crimes they committed in that country. This is a very complicated subject which can’t be explained in the simplistic manners required by a comment section. But one example is this: When Papa Doc was in power, all of his abuses were tolerated until he confiscated the catholic church’s property. Then, and only then, did the US decide he was an evil person. On the other side of the island, the Dominican Republic, the military dictator (I forgot his name, there have been so many of them) did pretty much the same as him, except for stealing church property; and nothing happened. Papa Doc was killed. I’m not saying Papa Doc wasn’t evil, it’s just that the only significant difference was the stealing of church property. Until MacDonalds came along, they were the largest real estate owners in the world. Which has a lot to do with why they aren’t supposed to wear their “uniforms” in public in Mexico. Though Mexico isn’t that big on enforcing laws. At least not like in the police state of amerika.
The Catholic Church is pagan and does not worship Jesus Christ, nor did Jesus Christ establish it; when they say mass, they are celebrating the crucifixion of Jesus and they show him emaciated and dead on the cross. Catholics don’t even use the Bible – they are pagan sun worshipers (most of them don’t know it), hence Satanists, and even during Easter Mass at the Vatican they sing praises to Lucifer (see: Pope worships Lucifer at Easter Mass on you tube for proof, you can hear it yourself). Why do you think there was a Protest? We Protested the blasphemous Catholic Church – they worship idols, one of the first SINS. The Pope is the Antichrist, 666 as he is called Vicarius Filii Dei, and it is on his miter. The Roman Catholic Church is the whore of Babylon. And he also claims ownership over the entire universe.
The word “Vatican” literally means “Divining Serpent,” and is derived from Vatis = Diviner and Can = Serpent. Vatican City and St. Peter’s Basilica were built on the ancient pagan site called in Latin vaticanus mons or vaticanus collis, which means hill or mountain of prophecy.
America is a British colony. The “United States” is a corporation, not a land mass and it existed before the Revolutionary War and the British troops did not leave until 1796. Respublica v. Sweers 1 Dallas 43, Treaty of Commerce 8 Stat 116, Treaty of Peace 8 Stat. 80, IRS Publication 6209, Articles of Association, October 20, 1774.

“U.S. President Donald Trump signed away the Fourth Amendment buried in a new bill. He set a precedent by empowering the police state to allow warrantless searches in parts of VA, MD and D.C. near the Metro train system.
The government can now openly enter and search private property without a warrant in parts of Virginia, Maryland and D.C.”
“Sponsor: Rep. Hoyer, Steny H. [D-MD-5] (Introduced 02/16/2017)”
“There has been 1 roll call vote” found at http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2017/roll381.xml
221 Republicans voted for; 178 Democrats voted for.
So what does this mean?
This means that 400 people who serve within our Federal government committed multiple felonies against the US Constitution (and other crimes concerning the supreme LAW of our land and the supreme CONTRCT that they all serve under and are Oathbound to). Add to that the crime of Perjufy and another felony or two for breaking the Oath. Enough to jail the lot of them. Then add to all of this is that they BROKE THE SUPREME CONTRACT that they must follow in order to meet the requirements of the position they occupy. LAWFULLY it means that there are 400 people who serve within different areas of our federal government that MUST BE IMMEDIATELY REPLACED.
But then that requires the American people themselves to have actually read the US Constitution; not just those that serve within our governments.
“The government can now openly enter and search private property without a warrant in parts of Virginia, Maryland and D.C.”
No, just because those who SERVE WITHIN our governments create a “law” does not mean it is binding on the American people, and if it does not follow the US Constitution – which this does NOT – then all who implement it are then *terrorist tools of the domestic enemies and traitors to the USA. They (implementers) can also be found guilty of treason along with the scum who served and created this.
*28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.
James Wilson: “I leave it to every gentleman to say whether the enumerated powers are not as accurately and MINUTELY DEFINED, as can be well done on the same subject, in the same language…nor does it, in any degree, go beyond the particular enumeration; for, when it is said that Congress shall have power to make all laws which shall be necessary and proper, those words are LIMITED AND DEFINED by the following, “for carrying into execution the foregoing powers”, it is saying no more than that the powers we have already particularly given (enumerated), shall be effectually carried into execution.”
Gov. Samuel Johnston, North Carolina Ratifying Convention of the U.S. Constitution (1788): “When Congress makes a law in virtue of their constitutional authority, it will be an actual law. I do not know a more expressive or a better way of representing the idea by words. Every law consistent with the Constitution will have been made in pursuance of the powers granted by it. Every usurpation or law repugnant to it cannot have been made in pursuance of its powers. The latter will be nugatory and void.”
Archibald Maclaine, North Carolina’s ratifying convention: “If Congress should make a law beyond the powers and the spirit of the Constitution, should we not say to Congress, ‘You have no authority to make this law. There are limits beyond which you cannot go. You cannot exceed the power prescribed by the Constitution. You are amenable to us for your conduct. This act is unconstitutional. We will disregard it, and punish you for the attempt.’”
Also at North Carolina’s ratifying convention, James Iredell told the delegates that when “Congress passes a law consistent with the Constitution, it is to be binding on the people. If Congress, under pretense of executing one power, should, in fact, usurp another, they will violate the Constitution.”
Treason, found in Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution of the United States provides: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.”
There are three key elements mentioned here that are necessary for an offense to constitute treason: First an obligation of allegiance to the legal order (US Constitution), intent to work against it, and then the action
to violate that obligation. All of those elements are found in the above.
Hamilton, Federalist 33: “But it will not follow from this doctrine that laws passed by Congress are the Supreme law of the land] that acts of the large society which are NOT PURSUANT to its constitutional powers, but which are invasions of the residuary authorities of the smaller societies, will become the supreme law of the land. These will be merely acts of usurpation, and will deserve to be treated as such.”
It is important for all to know that, as is said so well here by Michael LeMieux:
“The Constitution has very little to do with the American citizen. It was written to establish a Federal Government and to place the boundaries by which that government would operate. The constitution was never designed to provide or enumerate the rights of the citizens but to restrain the federal government from meddling in state and ultimately citizen affairs.”
Did he know it was in the bill?
This has been talked about for a while. It’s not like it was a secret. And are you trying to imply that he doesn’t have people who read this stuff beforehand? That the prez doesn’t have a staff whose job it is to do just this? Really?

You are probably the only one who DOESN’T know about it. This has been all over the news. He has STAFF that lets him know what is in the bills. They are HIS staff. Your notion that he doesn’t have a clue about something that has been known about for such a long time by everyone but you is ridiculous. Your support for him hinges on him being too incompetent to know what even the average person on the street knows. Explain how that isn’t childish reasoning.
It IS they job. Instead of doing it, they are isolating him from friends and allies and feeding him the information they want him to have, not the full truth. Wake up.
Says the government troll. How much do they pay you to commit your treason? Obfuscating the truth so that no one knows what to think, to bury and distract comments. A traitor in the pay of government. Like Trump can’t read a paper. What a stupid line of reasoning. Please, is there any job a government employee can’t mess up? Even their trolls are fifth rate.
Go fuck yourself, you sanctimonious, self-important shitbag.
How did they commit Perjufy?
Breaking the Oath is both a felony and the crimes of Perjury.
Those laws don’t apply to the people in charge. How many times have you heard a cop lie under oath? How many times have you heard an official in any capacity lie under oath? In case you haven’t noticed, it is all the time. Perjury only applies to the poor who have no power to fight back. The wealthy and powerful operate under a different set of rules. In fact, the president is protected from many charges because of his job. This also applies to members of congress. The system is, and has always been, rigged in favor of the powerful over the weak. Which is just how any student of history would notice.
You’re incorrect, they still do apply. But what is the problem then, why isn’t others who serve within our governments going after them? They ALL do not have any LAWFUL immunity from our laws EXCEPT the Congress when in chambers or on the floor debating issues. THAT is the ONLY LAWFUL immunity anyone who serves within our governments – state and federal – have.
So who does the US Constitution say in writing is
— Enforce the US Constitution (supreme LAW) and each state’s Constitution (highest LAW of the state except if a conflict with the supreme LAW of this nation),
— Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which are constitutional laws ONLY),
— Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
— “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”?
Let me add one more to this list, who are those that serve within the state and federal governments REQUIRED to use for the above mentioned enforcements?
The Militia of the several states. Who is that? The Militia of the several states is “We the People of the united States”. Of course to enforce those laws, and hold accountable those who serve we are REQUIRED to train as the Congress requires the military to be trained, read and know the US Constitution and our own state’s Constitution. That training and a few other things are what the US Constitution REQUIRES those that serve within the state and federal governments to give/perform for the Militias of the several states (US Constitution, Article 1, Section 8, Clause 15 and Clause 16).
There is NOT supposed to be any armed governmental agency doing those things.
Tench Coxe, Delegate to the Constitutional Convention of 1787: “The power of the sword, say the minority…, is in the hands of Congress. My friends and countrymen, it is not so, for The powers of the sword are in the hands of the yeomanry of America from sixteen to sixty… Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own
bosom. Congress has no power to disarm the militia. THEIR SWORDS AND EVERY TERRIBLE IMPLEMENT OF THE SOLDIER ARE THE BIRTHRIGHT OF AMERICANS. THE UNLIMITED POWER OF THE SWORD IS NOT IN THE HANDS OF EITHER THE FEDERAL OR STATE GOVERNMENTS BUT, WHERE I TRUST IN GOD IT WILL EVER REMAIN, IN THE HANDS OF THE PEOPLE.”
Basically it comes down to this, until “We the People” are ready and willing to do OUR own constitutional duties to hold accountable those who serve within our governments, etc then you are correct in your first sentence. But it is not the fault of those that serve and protect each other instead of hold them accountable, most are very corrupt and it really is NOT their constitutionally assigned duty. It is ours.
You really don’t understand how the system works. It’s corrupt. It always has been. The fact that you don’t understand this just shows your ignorance of how it works. It doesn’t make me wrong. Courts have actually ruled against holding Bush responsible for his crimes because he committed them in office. Who is going to arrest the ones in charge? The answer is no one. They hold themselves above the laws they are supposed to enforce. Your ignorance is amazing. We’re done. You are simply too ignorant for me to bother with anymore. Try reading any newspaper. You’ll find out that authority doesn’t hold itself accountable. The fact that you find this news astounds me. How can anyone be this out of touch with reality? You type so much to prove you don’t understand a thing about reality. What is written and what is practiced are two different things. You’ve been lied to your entire life and you just allowed that to happen because you chose to remain ignorant. That’s just laziness on your part. Educate yourself and then maybe, just maybe, you’ll get a clue about how the real world operates. Until then, you are just part of the problem.
I know that the PEOPLE who serve within our government are corrupt.
I also realize that those who serve do not bother to read the supreme CONTRACT that they are under. Do YOU realize that once they broke away from that contract, they no longer are LAWFULLY our government? That the ONLY way they can enforce their color of law, pretend laws against the people is by force.
That is why all who are required to take the Oath and are enforcers – LE and military – are NOT taught what that Oath requires of them though they should have at least wondered when it says it is the US Constitution that they are to “SUPPORT AND DEFEND” and not a person or office mentioned.
South Carolina newspaper essay, reprinted in Virginia that urged that any law that had to be enforced by the military was necessarily illegitimate: ““When an Army is sent to enforce Laws, it is always an Evidence that either the Law makers are conscious that they had no clear and indisputable right to make those Laws, or that they are bad [and] oppressive. Wherever the People themselves have had a hand in making Laws, according to the first principles of our Constitution there is no danger of Nonsubmission, Nor can there be need of an Army to enforce them.”
If you think that our law enforcement community is not an internal “army”, you might want to do some research. They do not do the duties of the people as the Militia such as enforce constitutional laws, enforce the supreme LAW of our land, the highest law of each state (those are ignored though they are oathbound to them), nor defend the peoples natural rights as all enforcers are required to do as it was WHY our government was created. They will enforce unlawful “emergency powers” and unlawful “martial law” (that unlawful enforcement against the people was why the Militia is required to enforce the laws, defend the borders, etc)
James Madison: “Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own.”
This is why they (enforcers) must be educated into what their real responsbilites are so that they no longer can be used as *terrorists against the American people and others. Why UNLAWFUL wars of aggression are used to keep us in line (been used for 100’s of years to do the same which is one of the reasons why actually knowing history is important. Why they allowed the assassination of a US President and his family over decades (Kennedy), the shooting of another to gain more power and control (Reagan).
It is why Monsanto, etc so that they can control the food supply. Why the grabbing of all water sources in “our governments name” – control the water control the food, control all people. Why “Defense”contractors are actually involved in our governmental operations. Etc. Why “education” is indocrination, etc. All unlawful, our family members and friends USED as soldiers in unlawful wars. But that points to some of the traitors of our nation.
John Quincy Adams: “America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all.”
Hitler, speech on November 6, 1933, “I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.’” (As reported by historian William L. Shirer)
Willi Münzenberg, a propagandist for the Communist Party of Germany, about the move of the Frankfurt School to the Columbia University in the United States about 1933: “We will make America stink. Only then, after we have corrupted all its values and made life base, can we impose the dictatorship of the proletariat.”
A more constitutional judge at that time – Justice William O. Douglas, dissenting, Colten v. Kentucky, 407 U.S. 104 (1972): “Since when have we Americans been expected to bow submissively to authority and speak with awe and reverence to those who represent us? The constitutional theory is that we the people are the sovereigns, the state and federal officials only our agents. We who have the final word can speak softly or angrily. We can seek to challenge and annoy, as we need not stay docile and quiet.”
But the other problem is the people who allowed themselves to be dumbed down, chemically, propagandized, and through subliminals (which have been used since TV was only in black and white). WE have our constitutional duties, and we have our own constitutional powers of authority, though today they are being used by those that serve within our government they are NOT their LAWFUL powers; *Grand Jury, *Grand Jury Investigations, Militia, (Informed) juries – which the courts have been fighting), Elections (which we allow to be corrupted) – we let the political parties change how we elect so that they select the people, and all unlawfully still.
George Washington, farewell address, Sept. 17, 1796 (speaking of political parties): “And of fatal tendency … to put, in the place of the delegated will of the Nation, the will of a party – often a small but artful and enterprising minority. … They are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the Power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government; destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
Why do you think that our government is always called a “democracy”? Why the lie that we are “spreading democracy” is used? How strong is contract law? Why is the US Constitution such a danger to them that they are using everything they can to destroy it, from lies about what it says (which can only work on the ignorant who won’t bother to read), to working over DECADES to get a Con Con up, to outright ignoring the contract that they serve under?
Ever read Edwin Vieira Jr? He speaks well of what those who serve within our government is today, a “lega fiction” because they broke the supreme contract they LAWFULLY HAVE NO POWER. No law enforcement, no one who serves within the US Military should obey them, but only do their duties as the supreme contract they are under and Oath bound to requires until we straighten out and replace the domestic enemies and traitors who serve at all levels of our government. That they are made into **terrorists” and traitors when they enforce unlawful edicts and go invade other nations. UNTIL our own nation is fixed ,traitors and domestic enemies arrested, charged, starting to be prosecuted, and of course, REPLACED they should ONLY ABIDE by the US Constitution and whatever state Constitution they are under. You see, those terrible things that are done against the people will increase until it is Stalin/Lenins Russia, Hitler’s Germany, etc ONLY because if they do not keep their Oath to the US Constitution, THEY will be the enforcers actually implementing and committing those actions.
Dr. Vieira: “This has nothing to do with personalities or subjective ideas. It’s a matter of what the Constitution provides… The government of the United States has never violated anyone’s constitutional rights… The government of the United States will never violate anyone constitutional rights, because it cannot violate anyone’s constitutional rights. The reason for that is: The government of the United States is that set of actions by public officials that are consistent with the Constitution. Outside of its constitutional powers, the government of the United States has no legitimacy. It has no authority; and, it really even has no existence. It is what lawyers call a legal fiction.”
Thomas Jefferson: “When once a republic is corrupted, there is no possibility of remedying any of the growing evils but by removing the corruption and restoring
its lost principles; every other correction is either useless or a new evil.”
*Grand Jury – “The grand jury is mentioned in the Bill of Rights, but not in the body of the Constitution. It has not been textually assigned, therefore, to any of the branches described in the first three Articles. It is a constitutional fixture in its own right. In fact the whole theory of its function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people”.
“Thus, citizens have the unbridled right to empanel their own grand juries and present “True Bills” of indictment to a court, which is then required to commence a criminal proceeding. Our Founding Fathers presciently thereby created a “buffer” the people may rely upon for justice, when public officials, including judges, criminally violate the law.” (Misbehavior, “Good Behaviour” requirement)
“The grand jury is an institution separate from the courts, over whose functioning the courts do not preside, we think it clear that, as a general matter at least, no such “supervisory” judicial authority exists. The “common law” of the Fifth Amendment demands a traditional functioning grand jury.”
“Although the grand jury normally operates, of course, in the courthouse and
under judicial auspices, its institutional relationship with the judicial branch has traditionally been, so to speak, at arm’s length. Judges’ direct involvement in the functioning of the grand jury has generally been confined to the constitutive one of calling the grand jurors together and administering their oaths of office. The grand jury’s functional independence from the judicial branch is evident both in the scope of its power to investigate criminal wrongdoing, and in the manner in which that power is exercised.”
“The grand jury ‘can investigate merely on suspicion that the law is being violated, or even because it wants assurance that it is not.’ It need not identify the offender it suspects, or even “the precise nature of the offense” it is investigating. The grand jury requires no authorization from its constituting court to initiate an
investigation, nor does the prosecutor require leave of court to seek a grand jury indictment. And in its day-to-day functioning, the grand jury generally operates WITHOUT the interference of a presiding judge. It swears in its own witnesses and deliberates in total secrecy.”
“Recognizing this tradition of independence, we have said the 5th Amendment’s
constitutional guarantee presupposes an investigative body ‘acting independently of either prosecuting attorney or judge”
“Given the grand jury’s operational separateness from its constituting court, it should come as no surprise that we have been reluctant to invoke the judicial supervisory power as a basis for prescribing modes of grand jury procedure. Over the years, we have received many requests to exercise supervision over the grand jury’s evidence-taking process, but we have refused them all. “it would run counter to the whole history of the grand jury institution” to permit an indictment to be challenged “on the ground that there was incompetent or inadequate evidence before the grand jury.” (Nor would it be lawful of them to do so.) Justice Antonin Scalia writing for the majority said In the Supreme Court case of United States v.
Williams, 112 S.Ct. 1735, 504 U.S. 36, 118 L.Ed.2d 352 (1992) (end quote)
**28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.
If you think I’m going to waste my time reading your book, then you’ve another thing coming. You obviously have no idea how power works. You are one of the most ignorant people I have come across in a while, and that’s saying something. Think what you want, I don’t care. Just know I have no respect for your opinion. Just your right to have one.
Good thing he’s appointing Constitutionalists to the SCOTUS. This is one law suit away from being nullified.
Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them.” — Miranda vs. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 491.
Marbury v. Madison if a law is found to be in conflict with the Constitution, then the law is invalid
The Constitution was invalidated long ago. Name one aspect of the Bill of Rights that hasn’t been shredded, or at least modified beyond recognition into the government’s favor. All of you people claiming the constitution can’t be changed must live under a rock. It’s constantly being violated on a daily basis by government. These things make headlines all the time, but all of a sudden you decide that reality isn’t for you. This is criminal stupidity.
he cannot sign away constitutional rights
Guilded gold pens can…;)
nope. he may think so. but it won’t.
You mean like free speech? Gone years ago. 4th Ammendment? Gone years ago. All of them? Gone years ago. You really are behind the times on this.
“Whatever happened to Lunsford?”
“He gave up. Sad story.”
My earlier reply was not here, so I’ll just give it again. You have to recognize a problem exists before you can address it. That is not giving up, it is manning up. Your reasoning is that of a child. Oh no! Let’s just pretend it doesn’t exist! The Bill of Rights was gutted a long time ago. That’s a fact. Just because you’ve had your head in a fat, dark, and smelly spot for a long time; doesn’t make it not so. I’m just stating facts. You? Just spouting nonsense.
What a great country, that arseholes with their quills up are treated the same as decent folk.
The Bill of Rights still stands, despite the efforts of petty and full-blooded tyrants. Some stand up for their rights against tremendous assaults from said tyrants.
Lesser men declare them dead and expect praise for their meager efforts.
Denial is not a river. So the NSA collecting all your data isn’t government wiping their butts with those rights? Suspension of Habeus Corpus in the NDAA means it still exists? The problem isn’t with me. The problem is that you are so laughably ignorant of reality. Go back and check those meds you’re obviously on. Crack kills. Your insistence that it is somehow immune from corruption makes the situation worse. Only until you can recognize the system is broken can it be fixed. You are part of the problem. Are they paying you to post this nonsense? After all, we know the government pays trolls to spew just such garbage.

I so treasure these measured and diplomatic responses from you.
I’m sure you are treasuring placing them inside that government database. What a disgusting troll. Your mother must be so proud that you chose to betray what little decency remained in this country.
Note the popular troll technique of never actually responding to the question at hand, instead distracting from the topic. This is perhaps the easiest way to identify a troll. There are many other methods, but the lowest common denominator ones can be counted on to employ this method.
To illustrate just one example of how out-of-touch you are with reality; the NYT announced the death of the 4th Amendment in 2008. They were correct. That was when the Supreme Injustices declared that cops could violate it if they were incompetent. Just one of a long and public stream of nullification of those rights. Free Speech Zones? Heard of those? Been here a while. That’s a gutting of free speech. Churches were incorporated in the 1950s and then told that to keep their charity status, they would have to refrain from political speech. That’s both freedom of speech and religion. Where have you been? Your ignorance is what has allowed this to happen. Not my noticing it has happened. What children you two insist on being.
so you just accept it and forget ehh? its people such as you that keep allowing this to happen. its not gone its just covered up.
You are confusing realization with submission. That is what is pathetic. that is like saying it is negative to say your car needs a tune-up. That attitude prevents you from taking action. Please project your loser attitude somewhere else. I don’t accept it as I know better. To realize the constitution and the bill of rights were demolished a long time ago is not giving up, it is recognizing reality. From there, one can take positive/negative action. Your attitude is to keep your head up your ass and hope that things work out. Which is the attitude that created this situation. Those that keep on doing the same things and expecting different results are insane.
You mean gilded, don’t you?
There is no Bill of Rights. That was legislated away long before any of us were born. They were never really rights to begin with. Rights are taken, privileges are granted. Those rights were granted to us by our owners. Just let that sink in for a while.
