Posted on 07/18/2013 4:08:06 PM PDT by True Grit
The executive branch coup against America has succeeded. 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.
Hang on FReepers!
We are in for a rough ride!
The question is, what are the rest of us, the patriots and the veterans, going to do about it?
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Ping for reply from Dr Paul
Roberts is a nut of the first order.
the IRS continues to oppress conservative groups and conservative individuals
they are trying to pass a country destroying Amnesty bill in Congress. most low info voters are not even aware of this action by Congress as the media hidden these things and other crimes of Obama. the media has proclaimed we puppets must concentrate on Trayvon 24/7 , Adam lanza, kim kardashian , sports , hollywood etc. and even on here most obey the media brainwashing focusing on trayvon 24/7.
what happened to the BP oil “catastrophe” (I'm on the coast and i can tell you it was all media lies). what happened to global warming? we live in the media matrix. here i was berated because i dared to tell them the BP oil “disaster” wasn't a disaster . now where is it?
That said, when he speaks, people ought to listen...particularly on the fact that Obama is leading a coup.
If only our military would do for us what the military in Egypt has done for that country.
Message to the U.S. military..."put the Kenyan SOB under house arrest." "And pick up that NAZI George Soros while you're at it."
Name one point he made in this article that is not true.
PCR is a traitorous lunatic. He wouldn’t know the Constitution if James Madison came back to life and read it to him.
We should use the nonviolent means of Article V that our framing generation gave us.
Roberts is a nut of the first order.
Those who bury their head in the sand usually get shot in the A$$.
I think we are in the 8th inning. I expect an economic crash in cascades here within a couple years.
The bahstids knew the housing market would crash in 2008 and these clowns gave it a little shove to make GW Bush take the fall (not that he did not deserve some blame). I speculate that these scoundrels are doing the same thing.
Maybe, IDK. I do know I can’t find anything to disagree with in the posted article.

Could be sooner.
So you think the Bush presidency was worse than Saddam Hussein and the Taliban governments?
He said Bush and Cheney were worse than Saddam Hussein and the Taliban. Among other things. Roberts is seriously deranged.
The part about the illegitimacy of the Bush/Cheney regime sounds a little loopy but all the rest of it I agree with.
The article, while on the right track, sounds a little suspect. Not written as responsibly as I would expect from an editor of the WSJ etc.
If you are referring to this:
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...
Notice the phrase "regime in Washington". To me, that refers to the current regime, King Zero.
I voted for W both times, but I think he could have done a much better job. He's a good man, just not really Presidential material.
But, no, I (obviously, as I'm not a liberal) do not think Bush was worse than the Iraqi regime or the Taliban.
I like W and admire the heck out of Cheney...but when W said Islam is a religion of peace...he f@*ked our war effort royally.
Besides that, please provide evidence of your accusations. Value judgments only have meaning for you if we don't understand how you reached your conclusion.
I wonder when he will have a “car accident” or “heart attack”? My bet is soon.
It's not so much that power corrupts as power attracts the corruptible.
There is SO much power floating around in Washington DC that the evil migrates to that venue.
“Roberts is a nut of the first order.”
There is a cot at a FEMA camp with your name on it.
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.
Thats BECAUSE... the Executive Branch IS ABOVE the law and the American Constitution IS A MERE SCRAP of paper..
Obama is in control of the IRS, CIA, FBI, NSA, Justice Department, all armed services, homeland defense, many State legislatures.. and several armed Executive branch agencies that should NOT BE armed.. and thats just the TIP of the iceberg of his powers..
MOST media is under his covert control... plus almost all Unions.. Universitys and much more than that..
Any expecting any Constitutional rights are delusional..
Its not new either its been coming for a long time even under the Bush’s.. and Clintoon’s...
The American public is most all brain washed.. except for the newbys(illegal insurgents).. that are used to despotic givernment...
They EXPECT givernment to be despotic.. thats all they know..
The Coup D’Etat is complete.. BEWARE of any that says IT’S NOT... They be morons..

Seems like we're in the 11th.
Our only hope is that there is a vein of leadership within the military-industrial complex that is willing to perform its duty and overthrow the overthrowers.
How lucky are the Egyptians!
Naw...his cot will be reassign. He has earned his stripes with disinformation...FEMA has given him their stamp of approval
By all means, because we see how well that's worked for us so far, eh? After all, the tyrants respect and obey the Constitution, don't they? /sarc
I'm reminded of my favorite Churchill quote, "If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
PS: by "the framing generation", I take it you mean the Founding Fathers? They didn't "frame" anything; they gave us a complete house, one that we've added to over the 226 years its been in existence.
This 75 year old vet is going to die waiting for the revolution that never comes. We can't even get one Congressman to raise the threat of impeachment, so what remains?
Given the argument he makes about the government's actions delegitimizing it, and that these actions are continuations of things that went on under Bush, I'll give him that one.
And you are deluded, so what?
I all began with an illegal alien unqualified pRESIDENT, and has been going downhill from there for nearly 5 years!
I said before he was elected that he had no intention of ever stepping down from the presidency if he could help it.
The people in America are only interested in maintaining the Status Quo. They see bad news and then look at their current lives and determine well it does not involve me and so they do nothing. They will continue to do nothing until 30%, 40% or even 70% of their freedoms are removed. A time will come when Americans suddenly realize they have no rights, no money, no freedoms and no future. At that time the liberals and conservatives will take sides and arm themselves. Revolution is then only a spark away and it is too late for compromise. The result will be massive and deadly.
It doesnt have to be that way; people could get involved now and head this disaster off. Are you feeling warm and comfortable? Like your status quo?
Right On !
On another thread, the one about a would-be shooter at the White Hut today, someone noted that all the Presidential assassins, as well as this would-be feller, had 3 names. Just sayin’.
I tell ya, don’t know about you, but the comments above in UPPUHCASE is what persuades me!
It’s not fully successful yet.
“If only our military would do for us what the military in Egypt has done for that country.”
I’ll vote for that!
And your unassailable information that would prove that what you say is true?
How about this one: “The apartheid Israeli regime in Palestine is more legitimate”?
Well, the Israeli gov't in the ME is certainly more legitimate than Obama.
Obama hasn't even provided us evidence that he is a U.S. citizen (i.e. an American citizen could not visit Pock-ee-stahn when Obama made his tour).
Does that count?
This isn’t going to stop until people start dying.
You asked for one thing in the article that isn’t true. I don’t believe that Israel is an apartheid regime. If you do, just say so.
There was no ban on American citizens visiting Pakistan in ‘81.
That said, let me go back to my research about Americans visiting Pock-ee-stahn. As I recall, Obama went there when Americans were prohibited from doing so.
BTW, are you an Obama supporter...just curious...no insult intended.
Just wondering why you are defending the SOB?
I’m not defending Obama but I do think Paul Craig Roberts is a nut job.
You don’t need to do a lot of research about the the supposed ban. It’s been discussed and debunked a thousand times right here on FR.
Good place to start is here with post 12 as the answer you’re looking for.
A dictatorship, despite its ideology, is still a dictatorship.
