The High Crimes of US Presidents
The U.S. has been an occupied nation for all of my life of seventy-two years. We are occupied and oppressed in complete violation of the Constitution and laws derived from it by the secret police armies of the Republicrat Party. These armies have top-secret members and units within the U.S. that secretly spy on us and collect information and plan the passage and execution of illegal activities against us as standard operating procedures. All of our presidents since FDR, who was president when I was born in 1937, and all of those directly involved in the secret armies or in their pseudo-oversight by Congress have known in general ways of all of these "High Crimes." The presidents have, as far as we know, given them vague, general, illegal authorizations under laws passed by Congress specifically to make it look to ignorant people like they do not violate the Constitution, but the very presence of such a tyrannical, secret police occupation of our nation is in itself an obvious violation of the entire purpose of the Constitution. This fact is known to all serious lawyers and anyone else who has studied the Constitution, but they all know that saying so will be the kiss of death professionally and that the Big Media would brand them as "crazy" for speaking such obvious truths.
The current chit-chat spat between the Republican and Democratic wings of the ruling Republicrat Party is so far one of the many minor such spats for publicity and power that erupt between the wings of the Party. So far we are seeing only secret tips of secret ice-bergs of this total tyranny in the U.S. We saw far more revealing, big tips of the immense and ever-growing ice-berg of these tyrannical High Crimes when the American love of liberty was still burning, but flickering more and more as it weakened under the blanket of One Party, secret police rule. The revelations of the FBI decades of spying, burglaries and other crimes against Americans after Hoover died and the Church Comm. revelations of the conspiracy at the top by the presidents and their top people to murder foreign leaders, spy on the U.S., and so on were major revelations. They did not keep the High Crimes secrets. They at least revealed them. But then they did nothing to effectively stop them by imprisoning the Criminals who committed these High Crimes.
Members of the Senate Oversight Committees supposed to make sure that the secret police armies do not spy on Americans and commit other High Crimes have written late in life about how absurd the whole idea of such oversight is. Bill Bradley's memoirs are a good example. He gives details of how totally non-over-sightful they are. Fulbright revealed in his memoirs that he even suspected the secret police, presumably the CIA, may well have been involved in the assassination of JFK and bringing Nixon down over the Watergate burglaries and cover-ups.
Now the spirit of liberty is so weak and dim among the great mass of Americans that they will not even pay much attention to this latest tiff between the wings of our One Party tyranny about these vast, secret armies occupying our nation, eating out our substance and routinely carrying out High Crimes of tyranny over us. Those who do pay any attention will only learn that some secret activities remain a total secret from the public and will do so in perpetuity and that the struggle for power between the wings of the Party will not endanger any Super Criminals committing such secret High Crimes.
