A law passed by the Continental Congress on July 30, 1778, declared that it was the “duty of all persons in the service of the United States, as well as all other the inhabitants thereof, to give the earliest information to Congress or other proper authority of any misconduct, frauds or misdemeanors committed by an officers or persons in the service of these states, which may come to their knowledge.”
While this is a law that is part of the US legal code the government, and this includes the Congress, could care less, it would appear, about this in the same way that they could care less about the Constitution of the United States per se and this not only as regards to a foreign-born and thus illegal president.
The majority of Americans, however, in the same way as things stand in Britain, remain totally detached from such shenanigans as long as they have bread and circuses, as it was called in ancient Rome, in this case TV and McDonald’s, while their government rides roughshod and tramples their rights.
Everyone is being considered a terrorist if he or she as much as speaks against the ills caused by government policy and the entire population of the country has been put under illegal surveillance where everyone is considered until they can prove themselves innocent. Instead of being ruled by common law, on which both the legal systems of the US and the UK are based, Roman law has entered via the backdoor that no one was guarding.
Whistle-blowers are persecuted, made stateless, imprisoned for long periods and even murdered while the true criminals sit in high places and get away with everything.
The governments takes it upon themselves to be judge, jury and executioner in many instances when they are being threatened with exposure as to their doings and we are here talking about so-called democratic governments who believe that they can teach democracy to other nations.
Actions the USA and the UK once condemned – and still condemn – in foreign countries with “despotic” leaders they enact upon their own people and no one is permitted to say a word.
Enacted laws and The Constitution, the Magna Carta, the Bill of Rights, and other such documents mean nothing to them and in the UK what people have perceived as their rights enshrined in the Magna Carta and the Bill of Rights the government has now declared to be but privileges which may be recalled if the government deems fit, such as Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press. And they still claim to be free countries and the people also still believe they can make a difference.
The USA and the UK, and the entire EU, have become fascist entities, with government being totally out of control and checks and balances no longer in place.
American “patriots” often claim that the USA has turned into a USSA – a take on the USSR – thus claiming it is turning into a communist state, but it would be better to refer to it as the Amerikan Reich. Then again, those that make the comparison to the USSR have little or no real knowledge of the USSR and communism bar the one that the government of the USA has indoctrinated them with. The fact that many of them are very right-wing also has a great deal to do with it and also that they are rather uneducated in matters of politics. Not that they would ever realize that with most of them having never been out of their own State let alone the country.
The current British Prime Minister David Cameron said in 2011 that “Free speech is an outdated concept and should be eradicated whenever the government deems necessary for however long the government deems necessary”.
And while Obama has not as openly declared this the fact that every America is considered a criminal and potential terrorist to be watched and email, phone, and even mail intercepted and monitored, says as much without actually saying it.
Our nations are very much in distress but the majority of the people are clueless. Wake up everyone!
