The American people have suffered a coup detat, but they are hesitant to acknowledge it. The regime ruling in Washington today lacks constitutional and legal legitimacy. Americans are ruled by usurpers who claim that the executive branch is above the law and that the US Constitution is a mere scrap of paper.
An unconstitutional government is an illegitimate government. The oath of allegiance requires defense of the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. As the Founding Fathers made clear, the main enemy of the Constitution is the government itself. Power does not like to be bound and tied down and constantly works to free itself from constraints.
The basis of the regime in Washington is nothing but usurped power. The Obama Regime, like the Bush/Cheney Regime, has no legitimacy. Americans are oppressed by an illegitimate government ruling, not by law and the Constitution, but by lies and naked force. Those in government see the US Constitution as a chain that binds our hands.
The South African apartheid regime was more legitimate than the regime in Washington. The apartheid Israeli regime in Palestine is more legitimate. The Taliban are more legitimate. Muammar Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein were more legitimate.
The only constitutional protection that the Bush/Obama regime has left standing is the Second Amendment, a meaningless amendment considering the disparity in arms between Washington and what is permitted to the citizenry. No citizen standing with a rifle can protect himself and his family from one of the Department of Homeland Securitys 2,700 tanks, or from a drone, or from a heavily armed SWAT force in body armor.
Like serfs in the dark ages, American citizens can be picked up on the authority of some unknown person in the executive branch and thrown in a dungeon, subject to torture, without any evidence ever being presented to a court or any information to the persons relatives of his/her whereabouts. Or they can be placed on a list without explanation that curtails their right to travel by air. Every communication of every American, except face-to-face conversation in non-bugged environments, is intercepted and recorded by the National Stasi Agency from which phrases can be strung together to produce a domestic extremist.
If throwing an American citizen in a dungeon is too much trouble, the citizen can simply be blown up with a hellfire missile launched from a drone. No explanation is necessary. For the Obama tyrant, the exterminated human being was just a name on a list.
The president of the united states has declared that he possesses these constitutionally forbidden rights, and his regime has used them to oppress and murder US citizens. The presidents claim that his will is higher than law and the Constitution is public knowledge. Yet, there is no demand for the usurpers impeachment. Congress is supine. The serfs are obedient.
The people who helped transform a democratically accountable president into a Caesar include John Yoo, who was rewarded for his treason by being accepted as a law professor at the University of California, Berkeley, Boalt school of law. Yoos colleague in treason, Jay Scott Bybee was rewarded by being appointed a federal judge on the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. We now have a Berkeley law professor teaching, and a federal circuit judge ruling, that the executive branch is above the law.
The executive branch coup against America has succeeded. The question is: will it stand? Today, the executive branch consists of liars, criminals, and traitors. The evil on earth seems concentrated in Washington.
Washingtons response to Edward Snowdens evidence that Washington, in total contravention of law both domestic and international, is spying on the entire world has demonstrated to every country that Washington places the pleasure of revenge above law and human rights.
On Washingtons orders, its European puppet states refused overflight permission to the Bolivian presidential airliner carrying President Morales and forced the airliner to land in Austria and be searched. Washington thought that Edward Snowden might be aboard the airliner. Capturing Snowden was more important to Washington than respect for international law and diplomatic immunity.
How long before Washington orders its UK puppet to send in a SWAT team to drag Julian Assange from the Ecuadoran embassy in London and hand him over to the CIA for waterboarding?
On July 12 Snowden met in the Moscow airport with human rights organizations from around the world. He stated that the illegal exercise of power by Washington prevents him from traveling to any of the three Latin American countries who have offered him asylum. Therefore, Snowden said that he accepted Russian President Putins conditions and requested asylum in Russia.
Insouciant americans and the young unaware of the past dont know what this means. During my professional life it was Soviet Russia that persecuted truth tellers, while America gave them asylum and tried to protect them. Today it is Washington that persecutes those who speak the truth, and it is Russia that protects them.
The American public has not, this time, fallen for Washingtons lie that Snowden is a traitor. The polls show that a majority of Americans see Snowden as a whistleblower. It is not the US that is damaged by Snowdens revelations. It is the criminal elements in the US government that have pulled off a coup against democracy, the Constitution, and the American people who are damaged. It is the criminals who have seized power, not the American people, who are demanding Snowdens scalp.
The Obama Regime, like the Bush/Cheney Regime, has no legitimacy. Americans are oppressed by an illegitimate government ruling, not by law and the Constitution, but by lies and naked force.
Under the Obama tyranny, it is not merely Snowden who is targeted for extermination, but every truth-telling American in the country. It was Department of Homeland Security boss Janet Napolitano, recently rewarded for her service to tyranny by being appointed Chancellor of the of the University of California system, who said that Homeland Security had shifted its focus from Muslim terrorists to domestic extremists, an elastic and undefined term that easily includes truth-tellers like Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden who embarrass the government by revealing its crimes. The criminals who have seized illegitimate power in Washington cannot survive unless truth can be suppressed or redefined as treason.
If Americans acquiesce to the coup detat, they will have placed themselves firmly in the grip of tyranny.
Well, many do acknowledge it... most here at FR know it. But, those you say are "hesitant" to acknowledge it - I'd go further - they couldn't care less until perhaps the day they find themselves in American Rice Paddies with large brimmed hats.
Indeed, we have one party that more and more fosters and then relies on an uneducated populace who are trained to vote one way - for totalitarianism, Agenda-21, 'Rats, Unions, Globullism, and so on...
The American “Nomenklatura” is now in place. They are using all the resources available, including the US Military, to implement the New World Order. The American people are going to become Sacrificial Lambs once they are no longer needed. IMO

Since 1917, the measure of dictators has been mass murder. Thus far, Mao is in the lead, followed by Stalin.
I don’t care for anyone who couples the word “Insouciant “ with Americans.
...and they have plans for us. The NSA is currently determining who the trouble makers will be when Martial Law is imposed. They'll be detained in advance of the regime's final push and sent to internment camps. That's a few years away, within 10 years.
Hesitant to acknowledge it or hesitant to be destroyed by it?

Roberts obscures the wall with ivy.
Our Republic has been inexorably replaced by monarchy.
That it has covert agencies and technologies at its disposal doesn't change its totalitarian nature.
The illusion of electoral choice is maintained.
By whatever metaphor, Rubicon or Reichstag, we approach the tristate nightmare of Orwell.
Oceania becomes Islamo-Communist; Eurasia is Putinstan while the Beijing ant hill is Eastasia.
Everyone here on Free Republic is with Emanuel Goldstein and the Brotherhood.
O'Brien told Winston Smith he'd never know if the resistance were real.
How does one fight a war on terror with a Muslim president and DCI--
--or is the Kabuki obscuring the pursuit of naked power which motivated Big Brother--
ideological window dressing notwithstanding.
Political leaders around the world who sanction human abortion, including our own, have already far surpassed their record of the shedding of the blood of the innocents.
I didn’t stop there, but the obvious question is why the author thinks the Bush/Cheney Regime, had no legitimacy.
Thanks BO Stinks. Mr. Paul Craig Roberts is one of a few circling around the incontrovertible kernel of truth, Barack Obama told us all, before he was sworn in, on his own web site, that he is a “Naturalized” citizen. He said “I am a native-born citizen of the U.S.” Obama told us he was “...born a subject of the British Commonwealth"..."... by the British Nationality Act of 1948". Obama spoke truthfully, depending upon the complicity of both political parties, and the ignorance of most of us about an obscure part of our legal history, obscure because it was seldom discussed and no president before Obama was known to have violated it. Thanks to attorney Leo Donofrio, we now know that Chester Arthur used a tactic similar to Obama’s, he hid his birth certificate, to distract from his alien father, a British subject when Chester was born. Barack took his oath of office in clear violation of our Constitution, as the Chief Justice was certainly aware, and himself impeachable. A valid question is whether Barack, not an eligible president, is impeachable?
“Native-born” residents, such as American Indians, were not made citizens by the 14th Amendment, because they owed sovereignty to their tribal governments. Barack told us, in the language of the “Naturalization Amendment”, which exercised Article 1 section 8, the command that Congress create “an Uniform Rule for Naturalization”, that he was “native-born”, born on our soil, and a citizen by the 14th Amendment. We assume he was born in Hawaii and our US Code makes him a citizen because his mother was a citizen. But he is not “born on our soil to parents who were citizens when he was born”, and never claimed to be, the common-law definition, since our Constitution intentionally does not contain definitions, depending upon the common language and common-law familiar to our framers. By our Constitution Obama is not eligible to the office he occupies.
Article II Section 1 wasn't obscure to our Congressmen. Seven attempts to amend the Constitution were submitted, two by John Conyers, one each by Menendez and Barney Brank, one by Rohrabacher and Orin Hatch, failed during just the seven years before he and John McCain were made the choice, neither of whom were “natural born citizens” as required by the Article II Section 1. Senators Barack Obama and his campaign co-chair Clare McCaskill filed Senate Bill 2678, , the Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act in February of 2008, and when that failed to pass, McCaskill and Leahy, in April 2008, filed Senate Resolution 511, the “Senator John McCain Natural Born citizen Resolution”, which is not actionable, but expresses a sentiment that McCain was a patriot, and our framers would have agreed, even if he doesn't satisfy the law. The leaders of both parties then imposed a ban on discussion and Republicans float one naturalized citizen after another, Rubio, Jindal, Cruz, to protect from being called to account. Democrats initiated, using Hillary's Pennsylvania Democrat party official, Philip Berg, a disinformation campaign to distract the public from the legal truth and direct focus to a non-existent birth certificate - clever agitprop reminiscent of the USSR’s Politburo.
All the seemingly bizarre comments and actions of team 0bama have come full circle. As you said, when Napolitano talked about 'domestic terrorists', she was talking about us, and posts like mine. The IRS scandal proves that our government is targeting/punishing Americans for their beliefs. One can only imagine the lists the DHS keeps and the names of Americans on those lists, such as Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and regular citizens such as myself. The question is, who is going to detain everyone on their list? I believe 0bama is building that army now, and it involves unions, black activist groups, ACORN, etc. Who will be given the hollow point rounds the DHS has purchased, and what is REALLY happening with all the guns our government confiscates, to include those received via 'gun buyback' programs? Will the DOJ/BATF start confiscating regular Americans' guns to arm their own appointed Civilian National Security Force?
George Orwell and Ayn Rand warned us, and now it's here. I don't think this can be stopped without blood letting on a scale never seen in any civilization, ever. That very fear is the reason nothing's been done to stop the war waged upon us.
Because it’s a holdover from the 2000 election cycle.
Recall the old “Bush Stole The Election” meme?
Forty years from now, there will be an emaciated Leftist in a government-sanctioned death center, lying in a pool of her own piss, gasping out her last words: “BUSH STOLE THE ELEC-unnnngh...”
They will carry their hate to their graves.
The Israeli "apartheid" is self defense. Now we know where this individual stands, even though he is right on the Obama regime.
Since 1917, the measure of dictators has been mass murder. Thus far, Mao is in the lead, followed by Stalin.
“I didnt stop there, but the obvious question is why the author thinks the Bush/Cheney Regime, had no legitimacy.”
After the Bush regime’s persecution of Texas border agents Ramos and Compean, I realized that something about that regime was dreadfully wrong. GWB could have pardoned those agents any time he wanted.
