This interview with author Luke Rosiak bluntly indicts the government system. He wrote the book “Obstruction of Justice: How the Deep State Risked National Security to Protect the Democrats”. He discusses Aman and Cosko in detail in the interview.
The coverup of Aman is ongoing. However, Judicial Watch is causing some slight movement through its Freedom of Information requests, even though the Department of Justice has not responded since May except to delay and give Judicial Watch the runaround. This video spells out some of that.
The scope of Washington corruption is breathtaking. For a working hypothesis, one should posit that the corruption touches every program, every agency, every law and everyone in the U.S. government who has power. That presumption will be more accurate than assuming the opposite, the reason being that the ungodly concentration of power and stolen taxpayer funds in Washington act as an inducement to corrupt everyone who comes near them.
Another assumption one can readily make without sacrificing truth is that any law that takes more than a very few lines (a page or so) to express and be understood is a bad law and should be repealed. The surviving laws are not necessarily good laws, unfortunately, but at least one can readily reject a large fraction of existing bad laws by this criterion.
The Virginia Plan, introduced by Mr. Randolph at the 1787 Federal Convention had several salutary features for containing the evils of government that the Constitution rejected: “… to be incapable of reelection for the space of […] after the expiration of their term of service, and to be subject to recall.”
Term limits and recall won’t solve the problems raised by any republican form of government, but they are steps in the right direction.
The Supreme Court burned the 10th Amendment down when it ruled that a State could not install its own term limits for Congressmen, even though this is a power not delegated to the federal government via the Constitution; and one would think that it is reserved to the States by the 10th Amendment. Justice Clarence Thomas got this one wrong, opining “In keeping with the complexity of our federal system, once the representatives chosen by the people of each State assemble in Congress, they form a national body and are beyond the control of the individual States until the next election.” Nonsense. By the republican principle, each State chooses its representatives and they remain representatives of that State’s or district’s constituents no matter if their job means signing off or not on federal laws. They are not magically transformed into a “national body”, who are beyond limitation or recall by that State’s citizens, by sitting down with other like representatives and passing laws under the powers of the Constitution.4:50 pm on December 13, 2019 Email Michael S.
