Criminal in Chief

Date: 15 June, 2006

By: Chief

Imageay what?

Mr. Trent Duffy, who just happens to be a mouth piece for the White House, needs desperately, as in the worst possible way, to take a drug test. Pronto. He must be on some hellafied hallucinogenics. Really, he must be. I say that because only somebody on some real heavy duty mind altering (not mind expanding, there is a huge difference) drugs would make the following idiotic statement about King George the Bush's unconstitutional and highly illegal domestic eavesdropping and wire tapping program:

"The president believes that he has the authority - and he does - under the Constitution to do this limited program. The Congress has been briefed. It is fully in line with the Constitution and also protecting American civil liberties" (Quoting the N.Y. Times).

Really you piece of whale excrement? Oops, excuse me, I almost lost my always objective cool there for a second. Really Mr. Duffy, you two faced lying sack of whale excrement? Then you can show to the entire country, publicly of course, where, exactly where, within our Constitution itself does King George the Bush have an express power to order eavesdropping and wire tapping of American citizens — We the People that is, without:

Come on Duffy, answer up. We the People are anxiously awaiting, with bated breath no less, your public answer.

Know Something. It sure has become quiet hasn't it? Rather like a tomb.

The reason it has become deathly quiet from Mr. Scumbag Duffy is because there is no express power within our Constitution that allows King George the Bush to circumvent the Constitution. Period.

To put it succinctly, King George the Bush is a worthless, scum sucking criminal. It is indeed that simple. And now you know why I titled this story "Criminal in Chief." The title of this story fits the conduct of the king and his court like a hand in a glove. A perfect match made in hell. And it is We the People who are suffering for it — our loss of Constitutional protections.

Haven't you noticed whenever the newspapers write a story about the king's Constitutional mischief, about all of the eavesdropping and wire tapping, the White House fires back, usually from some mouth piece like Duffy, claiming that the king has an inherent Constitutional power to do what he is doing.

Hogwash.

The Fourth Amendment states:

"The right of the People to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularity describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

And King George the Bush is merrily grinding that amendment into dust by violating it. Willfully and publicly.

The Sixth Amendment states:

"In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have Assistance of Counsel for his defence."

I just wonder which part of the Sixth Amendment do the king and his court fail understand? All of it obviously.

The Ninth Amendment states:

"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

In other words, what ain't expressly prohibited, I am free to do. I am quite sure the king hasn't read this amendment either.

The Tenth Amendment states:

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Did you catch the key word? Delegated. Yup that is the key word. Delegated is another way to say express. Hence, King George the Bush has no inherent power. Neither does the Congress for that matter.

Do the framers of our Constitution have anything to say on the matter? You had better believe it. Federalist Paper number 84, written by Alexander Hamilton, reads in pertinent part (discussing powers relinquished by the people):

"It is evident, therefore, that, according to their primitive signification, they have no application to constitutions, professedly founded upon the power of the people and executed by their immediate representatives and servants. Here, in strictness, the people surrender nothing; and as they retain everything they have no need of particular reservations, 'WE, THE PEOPLE of the United States, to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America' (emphasis added).

[...]

"They would contain various exceptions to powers which are not granted; and, on this very account, would afford a colorable pretext to claim more than were granted. For why declare that things shall not be done which there is no power to do? Why, for instance, should it be said that the liberty of the press shall not be restrained, when no power is given by which restrictions may be imposed? I will not contend that such a provision would confer a regulating power; but it is evident that it would furnish, to men disposed to usurp, a plausible pretense for claiming that power."

Pretty wells says King George the Bush is a worthless, scum sucking criminal now doesn't it?

Oh, you don't think this secret wire tapping program could possibly affect you? No? Then let me toss in this N.Y. Times quote:

"Gerry Spence, who is the lead counsel representing Brandon Mayfield, a Portland lawyer who was arrested in error last year in connection with the Madrid bombings and is now suing the government, said of the security agency program: 'We are going to look into that. The calmest word I can use to describe how I feel about this is that I am aghast' " (emphasis added).

I thought you might change your mind. You're welcome.

I'll say it yet again, King George the Bush is a worthless, scum sucking criminal. So, too, is his court.

Congress, since they have done nothing to put an end to this Constitutional abortion, is just as guilty as the king and his court. The members of Congress so far have done nothing except kiss the king's butt. As such, aiding and abetting comes to mind. So does conspiracy.

Vote

The lily livered parasitic Congressional politicians who owe their office to We the People have, out of gratitude, taken a gigantic dump on We the People and have decided instead to pin their political hopes on King George the Bush. Well, I have got some news for them (in the off chance they may have forgotten). All the members of the House of Representatives are up for reelection this year. As is 1/3 of the Senate.

Fire them all, says I.

Then demand, not ask — demand, of the new Congress the immediate:

While I do agree with y'all that lining parasitic Congressional politicians up against the nearest wall and shooting them does provide far more satisfaction than does voting the worthless dirtbags out of office, however, I submit that the vote is the better way to fly — for the time being anyway.

But we need to keep our powder dry just in case.
