The ‘LAW’ -- Don’t Make Me Laugh!

international / injustice/law / article

The World today has been built on the backs (sweat, blood, hardship and tears) of average hard working men and women, the producers of real things in a REAL WORLD; minority elites would ignore this FACT at their own peril!

In contrast to REAL producers we have the ‘professional class’ of paper shufflers, shysters, bankers and the rest; SOCIAL PARASITES defines them accurately. If you require PROOF of their status take a good hard look at the legal profession and the ‘LAW,’ the professional class’ most sacred cow.

ANYONE with a smattering of experience of this profession is AWARE that LAWYERS are heinous and unscrupulous LIARS, double dealers and distorters; they derive huge incomes from interpretation, rhetoric, and selling fictional ‘realities’ – their (non) ‘product’ serves itself not those with the greatest need for JUSTICE, as is demonstrated DAILY by International and Local Courts around the world. The coalition of willing criminals, Bush, Blair and Howard, responsible for the first civilian holocaust of the new century, remain at large today, to cite just one example of CORRUPTION, dysfunction and brazen BIAS.

Jailing one Wall St. financial fraudster among hundreds of others responsible for the global economic collapse is a tragic JOKE; and even that case borders on ‘Wonderland’ logic. How is it possible for one man to steal over $50 billion over decades, the paperwork alone requires scores of complicit support? However, the people are offered the insult of jailing a single individual for the huge losses they suffered; common sense, reason and basic logic DICTATE that a ruse and corruption of the highest order was undertaken by numerous offenders but this case like so many others was never adequately investigated -- I wonder why!

Would you care to assess the INTEGRITY of the ‘one-eyed’ International Criminal Court of ‘Justice,’ which is legally obliged not to pursue Americans, Israelis and NATO allies – the people should be aware that only enemies of NATO commit war crimes and other crimes against humanity; notwithstanding the world’s worst kept ‘secret’ is the civilian death toll in Iraq! Should we mention the blatantly criminal civilian-killing Drone attacks conducted by the CIA and US military almost daily in various regions throughout the world. Nah! We better not, too much brutal REALITY acts as a soporific these days.

Spare a thought for Bradley Manning who has been TORTURED for over seven months in solitary confinement while Julian ‘martini’ Assange performs the function of distracting us from the HUNDREDS of heinous crimes committed daily by those seemingly ABOVE the LAW – the agenda of an UNREPRESENTATIVE elite must be safeguarded at all times, didn’t you know?

An apology, I must prematurely end this piece before I puke, but feel free to continue and cite all the injustices of our new, lawless, ‘Alice in Wonderland’ century for our grandchildren and posterity to marvel at -- they need to know what 'stuff' we were made of and how the legacy we left behind led them directly to fascism and social slavery! God forbid that WE should actually do something constructive to remedy the appalling social injustices of the day.

The Law is not an ass, it is an unfolding tragedy and an indictment of us all!

Have a nice day.

The power of both mental and physical action (joined with the choice to "let go" and cease resisting the "universal powers" who wish to assist us) to create a new reality [free of 20th-century-octogenarian-criminal-sodomite-hangers-on, and their bastards] should be employed daily.

Freedom from "Legal Fictions" and the "Corporate-Responsibility-Shifting-Slave-Raping-Hive-Mind" will only come AFTER Personal "Ideological shifts", and heavy Spiritual, Mental, and Physical Purging.

As anybody who has ever detoxed knows, it's not a light undertaking.

Anything less however is a "piss into the wind". Nothing changes, except you look (even more) foolish... and you're covered in piss.

A close relative personally experienced the Corporate Beast (for whom he faithfully carried water for 20 years) hire a "legal-hit-squad" to hand-craft a "perfectly legal" scheme to screw him (and a thousand others in this one case) out of his "Legally Contracted" severance and vacation pay.

My relo was smart enough to beat 'em at their own game. [He got his few "pennies", and has since spent them all away.]

He (to date) has NOT been smart enough to see the entire pathological demonic plague for exactly what it is, and to ***re-think and re-order his OWN life*** to STOP ALL payments to said vermin.

His excuse? "Morality and Ethics" bind US [I guess "They" get off the hook anytime they want.] to fulfilling our "obligations".

Don't get me started.

I guess if your fooled, "advertised", or just plain dumb enough to contract a pound of your flesh to a Shylock, then realizing YOUR error just doesn't matter. Jesus, Mo, and Buddy are gonna really be disappointed if you don't submit yourself to the knife!

The noose will continue to tighten. Most are already dead men walking. [Just waiting around for their immune systems to finally crash and all their cancerous moles to meta-size and finish off a few vital organs.]

It does NOT have to be that way!

True Freedom will Not appear with another limp-dick "tea party sing along" or "worker rally" [that'd be called a false flag operation].

True Freedom is YOU kicking YOUR OWN ass!

Let's get on with it...

Is Fascism Lurking?
by Danny Schechter via stan - CommonDreams Friday, Jan 14 2011, 6:53am

Fascism is one of those words that sounds like it belongs in the past, conjuring up, as it does, marching jack boots in the streets, charismatic demagogues like Italy's Mussolini or Spain's Franco and armed crackdowns on dissent and freedom of expression.

It is a term we are used to reading in histories about World War II--not in news stories from present day America.

And yet the word, and the dark reality behind it, is creeping into popular contemporary usage.

Radical activists on the left have never been hesitant to label their opponents with this "F word" whenever governments support laws that limit opposition or overdo national security or abuse human rights. Government paranoia turns critics paranoid.

One example: writer Naomi Wolf forecast fascism creeping into America during the Bush years accelerated by the erosion of democracy, writing:

"It is my argument that, beneath our very noses, George Bush and his administration are using time-tested tactics to close down an open society. It is time for us to be willing to think the unthinkable - as the author and political journalist Joe Conason, has put it, that it can happen here."

Wolf feared Americans couldn't see the warning signs:

"Because Americans like me were born in freedom, we have a hard time even considering that it is possible for us to become as unfree - domestically - as many other nations. Because we no longer learn much about our rights or our system of government - the task of being aware of the constitution has been outsourced from citizens' ownership to being the domain of professionals such as lawyers and professors - we scarcely recognize the checks and balances that the founders put in place, even as they are being systematically dismantled. Because we don't learn much about European history, the setting up of a department of "homeland" security - remember who else was keen on the word "homeland" - didn't raise the alarm bells it might have."

Now, those bells are now being rung by John Hall, an outgoing Democratic Congressman from upstate New York. His fear of fascism has less to do with repressive laws and militarism than the influx of corporate money into politics, swamping it with special interests that buy influence for right wing policies and politicians.

"I learned when I was in social studies class in school that corporate ownership or corporate control of government is called Fascism," he told the New York Observer. "So that's really the question-- is that the destination if this court decision goes unchecked?"

Reports New York's Observer, "The court decision he is referring to is Citizens United, the controversial Supreme Court ruling that led to greater corporate spending in the midterm elections, much of it anonymous. In the wake of the decision, Democrats tried to pass the DISCLOSE Act, which would have mandated that corporate donors identify themselves in their advertising, but the measure failed amid GOP opposition. Ads from groups with anonymous donors were particularly prone to misleading or false claims."

Hall said the influx of corporate money in the wake of Citizens United handed the House of Representatives to Republicans. "Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of State and corporate power."

Many in mainstream politics who understand that big money can dominate elections although not in every case share Hall's fears. In California, two well-known female candidates from the corporate world raised millions but still went down in defeat.

So money alone is not the be all and end all of a shift towards a red white and blue brand of fascism. Other ingredients are needed and some may be on the way-like an economic collapse, defeat in foreign wars, rise in domestic terrorism and the emergence of a right-wing populist movement that puts order before justice and wants to crush its opponents

Some argue we have just such a movement in the Tea Party although other critics focus on the rise of the Christian right that promotes fundamentalist politics in the name of God.

The Tea Party is not just after Democrats; it has started a campaign against the liberal Methodist Church. It is not internally democratic either with no elected officers or set of by by-laws. It seems to be managed and manipulated by shadowy political operatives and PR firms, financed by a few billionaires who support populism to defang it.

Already militias are forming because of fears of immigration, and there is also concern that if unemployment remains high there is likely to be more violence with police forces understaffed because of government cutbacks. Gun sales went up after the recent violent incidents in Arizona.

The erosion of economic stability with the rise of foreclosures and the shredding of social services is already turning a financial crisis into a social one.

We already have sharp partisan divide and inflation of hateful rhetoric with vicious putdowns of the President and condemnations by members of Congress calling him corrupt, even a traitor.

According to set of the characteristics of fascist nations, there is "a disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

"In place of human rights enemies are turned into scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists." This process is already far along in the USA.

Among the classical characteristics of fascism is a shutting down of debate and a focus on the state--which in our country is controlled by lobbyists and private interests. Wall Street and the military-industrial complex have far more clout than elected officials.

In the past, during the depression, there was a plot to overthrow Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It was exposed and neutered. Could something like that happen again?

Maybe it doesn't have to, what with hawks already in control of Congress, major media outlets, the military and poised to slash the power of unions and curb progressive social programs including public education.

Several writers believe that if and when fascism comes to America it will be packaged in a friendly form tied to beneficial advertising slogans and public interest messaging. It will be sold, 1984-style as being unavoidable, even cool, and in our best interest.

Louisiana Senator Huey Long, a mesmerizing agitator, once said, "Fascism will come to America in the name of anti-fascism."
