We render unto Ceaser, what is Ceasers.
John Adams said there was never a Democracy that did not commit suicide.
So this really is the nature of men and power. We were simply lucky to be in the oasis of freedom while it lasted.
So we were blessed.
Now is the time to look them in the face and laugh, as they drive the titanic into the iceberg. When I tell them what they have done and laugh at them, I see the fear on their faces, and this gives me the greatest satisfaction. They will not see me angry or blue. They will see me pour the brandy and gaze at the stars, smiling, with clear conscience . I want them to know they sank the ship, long before we go down.
I have one last thing to do before I can know my conscience is clear: give law enforcement all they need to put Bob Bauer, Chiyome Fukino, Loretta Fuddy, Joe Miller, Jess Hennig, Bob Gibbs, Nancy Pelosi, etc behind bars for life (if not given the death penalty), and then watch as every level of law enforcement betrays the rule of law. Then I can know that I warned them all; the bloodguilt is on them, not me.
I already warned Congress, and the secretaries who threw away my fax are just as guilty as if they had thrown away a credible, actionable warning that Washington DC was going to be blown up on a specific day. When (not if) the country is destroyed by this legally-acknowledged foreign enemy combatant, those secretaries will have a lot to answer for. The guilt will be on them, not me.
The guilt will be on Rep. Adrian Smith and Sen. Mike Johanns, because they received the warning and refused to act.
I was recently up most the night as one of my kids tried to talk a friend out of suicide and eventually called the cops to make sure the friend made it through the night. The friend makes the choice to live or die, but knowledge brings responsibility, and the thought of a friend dying when you could have prevented it was more than my child wanted to live with forever. It’s not a decision to be made flippantly. But I think it was made very flippantly by these secretaries, and they will eventually regret it, when it’s too late.
