New Law Set to Sweep Across the Nation that Would Strip All Americans of their Constitutional Rights
PRNewsWire ^ | Federal Ethics Center

Posted on 05/04/2012 4:07:25 PM PDT by freeliberty21

WASHINGTON, May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Federal Ethics Center (FEC), a watchdog organization protecting the rights of United States citizens, urges Congress to promptly hold hearings regarding troubling events occurring in the United States 5th Circuit.   FEC's letter to members of Congress outlined several examples of recent erratic 5th Circuit initiatives as follows:

  1. 5th Circuit Judge Jerry Smith, in disregard of the law, recently demanded that Attorney General, Eric Holder Jr. confirm that the rule of Marbury v. Madison applies to the President of the United States.
  2. 5th Circuit District Judge, W. Royal Furgeson, Jr., in coordination with 5th Circuit Bankruptcy Judge Stacey G.C. Jernigan, acted with disregard for the law in restricting the rights of U.S. citizen, Jeff Baron, including strangely barring him from legal counsel in defense of an unlawful proceeding against his financial interests and individual freedom, even threatening Mr. Baron with severe physical punishment by means of the combined forces of the United States military in a civil lawsuit.

After making the threats of violent punishment in this civil lawsuit, Judge Furgeson handed down an unprecedented order, imposing a federal receivership on Mr. Baron's person, literally making him the chattel property of the judge's colleague.  Furgeson's action is the first time in American history that an individual has been placed into a receivership.   If this order is not overturned, the consequences for all Americans could be far reaching.

Judge Furgeson's order transfers "possession and control" of "all receivership parties" and "assets", which specifically includes the person Jeffery Baron, to a court appointed receiver.   To date, the 5th Circuit Court has declined to stay the actions taken against Mr. Baron.  Mr. Baron has been held in a civil lockdown for the past 15 months, without counsel, without trial and without due process.

Despite no criminal or incompetency allegations, the 5th Circuit has taken away Mr. Baron's legal rights and made him a ward of the state. This dangerous precedent is poised to set in motion a rapid expansion of receivership laws against law abiding American citizens.

Part of Mr. Baron's plight may be viewed at WashingtonExaminer.com, LawInjustice.com and facebook.com/savejeff.. In addition, a petition sponsored by human rights organization NOTEGA can be found at SaveJeffBaron.com.  The transcripts of Mr. Baron's proceedings can be downloaded at FederEthicsCenter.com

The Federal Ethics Center (FEC) is a watch dog association protecting the Constitutional rights of all United States citizens.  FEC's Legal Director David Nolan is a former ethics attorney for the Office of the President-Elect and the White House.   He is a co-author of the Ethics Section of the DC Practice Manual.  He has trained federal attorneys in continuing legal education (CLE) for their respective state bar ethics requirements.

A law, by definition, cannot strip one of their Constitutional rights; only a Constitutional Amendment may change one’s Constitutional Rights. That said, a compliant Supreme Court can redefine what is Constitutional, but only if Congress declines to Impeach.

What an absolutely godawful post. It makes absolutely zero sense and doesn’t even approach making a point.

BLUF, dude, BLUF—Bottom Line Up Front. Don’t expect me to click through three dozen links. Outline your issue, argument, and the supporting facts. Supply links as extra resources so your analysis can be verified independently.

This s**t ain’t rocket surgery.

“A law, by definition, cannot strip one of their Constitutional rights; only a Constitutional Amendment may change one’s Constitutional Rights. That said, a compliant Supreme Court can redefine what is Constitutional, but only if Congress declines to Impeach.”

‘Constitutional rights’ is a misnomer. There are no such things because the Constitution does not grant us or give us any rights. The Constitution enumerates certain rights and limits the government as to how it can interact with or infringe on those rights.

Therefore, our rights cannot be extiguished by a law or even by a Constitutional amendment because the Constitution has no authority over our rights. We, the People, are the sole authority of our rights. The Constitution limits the power and scope of government.

You’re outraged because I posted a post twice but only clicked it once. Either that or you are outraged to learn something important has been going on decades if not centuries and you, as I, still don’t know precisely what it is. But it matters a lot. And you’re outraged.

The sad thing is, I find myself constantly outraged and yes, I'm sure something has been going on for decades and it's just coming to light now (albeit minus obvious pertinent facts). I have no doubt that when all the information is posted, it will be outrageous.

The headline attracted me to this thread and I know these are important rulings that aren’t good for our future. But, being Friday evening, the words of the article just did not sink in on quick first and slower second readings.

So, May the fourth be with you for a few hours longer.

FEC's Legal Director David Nolan is a former ethics attorney for the Office of the President-Elect and the White House.

The Office of the President-Elect... Isn't this the phoney title Obama's campaign staff created for him with even a fake emblem to put on the podium?

Is this far Left wing propaganda?

it’s actually not possible for the government to strip our rights. if you think it is, you’ve missed the fundamental point of our Constitution

the most they can do is try and deny our rights, trampling on them.

but then again, they’ve been doing that for a number of years already

Federal judge puts Internet pioneer in civil lockdown

http://washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/2012/02/federal-judge-puts-internet-pioneer-civil-lockdown/272761

Opinion piece - last paragraph:

A former multimillionaire doesn’t get much sympathy nowadays. But if Jeff Baron can be held in this weird form of civil lockdown even though he’s never been charged with any crime and never had any judgments against him, what are you going to do when they come for you?

Close, but this is a judicial act, not legislative. There was no discussion on this one, except by the crazy jurist.

First off, they open outward. Second they have to withstand 100+ mph winds.

The problem with this story is the words...there are just too many of them!

Is there a Cliff Note version of it....or maybe it can be served up in a nutshell?

I’d even settle for courtroom reporter etchings-might make more sense with pictures....

Read the letter to Congress and the attachment at http://www.federalethicscenter.com/5thCirFEC.pdf

This starts to explain the situation more clearly.

The judge in the case was appointed by Clinton, but the law will soon apply to all courts.

Basically, a judge will now be able to deny your right to trial and right to a lawyer for any reason the judge dreams up. This is how the court systems in China, Iran, Syria operate. It’s a really bad thing for America.
