The United States Is In Fact An Orwellian Tyranny-Obama Statements At The National Defense University

The United States is in fact an Orwellian Tyranny that merely chooses not to implement full tyrannical measures. It only makes this decision because it does not yet have sufficient power to completely control the masses, i.e. we have not been made sufficiently docile, nor sufficiently dumbed down, fattened, sickened, and disarmed. When the government does have that power, and it will soon enough, it may then be too late to effectively resist.

During a speech on May 23 at the National Defense University at Ft. McNair in Washington D.C. in which Barrack Hussein Obama was called to the carpet by Medea Benjamin, one of his employers, for his actions relating to men who are illegally imprisoned by the United States Government, he stated: “Now, even after we take these steps one issue will remain, just how to deal with those Gitmo detainees who we know have participated in dangerous plots or attacks but who cannot be prosecuted, for example, because the evidence against them has been compromised or is not admissible in a court of law. But once we commit to a process of closing Gitmo I am confident that this legacy problem can be resolved consistent with our commitment to the rule of law.”

Think about this, the man who claims to be the President of the United States has just admitted that he is refusing to order the immediate release of prisoners that the government admits it has no evidence against. Yet in the same breath Obama states that the government “knows” the men committed crimes! How can the government know that somebody has committed a crime yet simultaneously have no evidence against him?! And worse yet, how can it continue to unlawfully imprison that person?! How can Obama announce that these men are guilty when they have never been found guilty in a court of law?! Barrack Hussein Obama has just announced to the world that he has the authority to unilaterally declare that someone is or is not guilty of a crime. The executive branch of government has now officially partially assumed the proper and constitutionally delegated role of the judicial branch. Also notice the Orwellian Double Speak as he claims that it is possible to “deal” with this issue consistent with the rule of law, while simultaneously violating the rule of law! The two practices are mutually exclusive and completely incompatible, yet he states that they work together. This is a whole new level of new speak and double speak. Non-evidence is actually evidence, tainted evidence is reliable evidence, illegal evidence is legal evidence, violating the law is upholding the law, and usurping the Constitution is adhering to the rule of law! This is the definitive definition of new speak and tyranny!

Also, let us not gloss over the fact that Obama refers to this situation as a “legacy problem” in a clear attempt to insinuate that he holds no responsibility for and is in no way accountable for this unlawful practice. Indeed, George W. Bush implemented this unconstitutional practice, but Obama continued it despite his crystal clear campaign promises to the contrary. From the moment that Obama took office and failed to order the immediate civilian trial or the release of every prisoner, he not only proved himself to not be a man of his word, he also immediately assumed culpability and responsibility for the actions of his predecessor and for every day thereafter that those human beings are denied their inalienable and God-given rights. In legal parlance this is called conspiracy after the fact, and it is a criminal offense.

At this moment all doubts as to the Orwellian and tyrannical nature of this dictator and of the United States Federal Government have been evaporated! There is now no room for doubt on where we stand! Who among us will idly stand by as men, against whom there is no evidence, rot in prison? How many American Citizens does this include? How long until this new legal standard is incorporated into and utilized in domestic criminal courts at the local, state, and federal levels? Or has it already been introduced and continues to be so incrementally? A close examination of the criminal justice system clearly demonstrates that this is indeed the case at every level of government, from traffic courts, to tax courts, to criminal courts, and “adjudicated hearings” conducted by the likes of the EPA, the NLRB, et al.

The judicial tyrants on the Supreme Court and other federal courts have bent over backwards to allow every form of illegally, unlawfully, and unconstitutionally  obtained evidence by police and other government agents to be admissible in courts and used against the accused, essentially eviscerating the Fourth Amendment. They have also steadily chipped away at the right to a speedy trial, the right to confront you accuser, and the right to present evidence on your own behalf, while simultaneously increasing the so-called right of government law breakers to be immune from criminal and civil prosecution for their criminality, brutality, and lawlessness. No wonder so many people in government are afraid of an armed citizenry. An armed man is a citizen whereas an unarmed man is a subject. Or put another way, an armed citizenry will get to the point where they won’t take this abuse anymore and agents of the state will find that engaging in immoral and unconstitutional actions will more likely than not result in them being shot and killed by those whom they are oppressing, whereas an unarmed citizenry that finally gets to the point where they can’t take it anymore will have no choice but to roll over and take it-hard. History and the current world are replete with these kinds of societies.

All the while the one party system in Congress not only allows this to happen, but actively funds it with your money. Think about it. You spend on average 33% of every hour you work, every day you work, every week you work, every month you work, and every year you work, working to support these policies and practices. And when you are not working you are paying compound taxes that amount to an average of 33% of the costs for the goods and services that you consume and utilize every day. Essentially, the government says that it owns one-third of your life, whether you like it or not. At one time that figure was 0%, 1%, 5%, etc. One day it will be well over 50% and perhaps even 90%-100%. And there won’t be a damn thing you can do about it because by then you will have been fattened up, dumbed down, and disarmed. Perhaps we are getting what we deserve for allowing our government to do what it does to the sovereign peoples of foreign lands.

Keep in mind that the fact that most of these men are foreigners is not ok. The rights to habeas corpus, trial by jury, and due process are universal human rights that apply to all men. Remember that the Constitution does not grant these rights to Americans, it merely recognizes these preexisting rights which apply to all men by the nature of their very existence. As such, our government is obligated to apply these rights to all human beings with whom it interacts or comes into contact. If you have not yet attained a post-conventional stage of intellectual and moral development where just doing the right thing for the sake of doing what is right, is enough for you; then allow me to appeal to your selfish pre-conventional stage of intellectual and moral development and point out that it is also in your own best interest to oppose this tyranny because there is a direct inverse relationship between a government’s exertion of power over foreigners and foreign lands, and the amount of domestic freedom at home. As the exertion of foreign power increases, freedom at home decreases. This is because policies, procedures, practices, techniques, and technologies are invariably directed inward as opposed to exclusively outward. Proof of this is found throughout history but more recently is found in both of the Patriot Acts, both of the Military Commissions Acts, the NDAA, the de facto nullifications of the Posse Comitatus Act and of the Fourth and Fifth Amendments, the actions of C.I.A. personnel within the United States, as well as the events at Ruby Ridge, Waco, and Boston, and the general militarization of local and civilian law enforcement.

And what will become of the prisoners that Obama has found guilty by public proclamation? My guess is a combination of the following: Secret Star Chamber type trials that invariably find everyone guilty, executive orders finding them guilty-this would merely formalize Obama’s public pronouncements of guilt,  life in prison, death, handing over to third parties that will agree to do what we tell them to do to the prisoners-including murdering them. People like me will soon follow.

“Freedom is not bestowed upon by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature.” -Benjamin Franklin.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” -Lord Acton.

“A Republic, if you can keep it.” -Benjamin Franklin.

What are you waiting for? How much more of a clarion call do you require before you wake up and before you take action? Must you literally find yourself, a loved one, or a friend, dead, nearly beaten to death, about to die, or unjustly imprisoned, before you are ready to take action, and then wishing that you had already done so because at that point it will be too late?

    You are not alone in your call for action

    “When a government has repeatedly and deliberately
    failed to follow its own laws, violated the fundamental human rights of
    its citizens, threatened the sanctity of a free press, created
    institutions intended to eliminate privacy of communication, waged war
    at the behest of special interest that threatens the public safety,
    killed hundreds of children with drone strikes, imprisoned and destroyed
    the lives of countless individuals for victimless crimes, stifled
    economic opportunity to maintain the dominance of the financial elite,
    stolen from the people through an absurd system of taxation and
    inflation, sold future generations into debt slavery, and abused its
    power to suppress political opposition, it is unfit to exist and it
    becomes the duty of the people to alter or abolish that government by
    whatever means necessary to secure liberty and ensure peace.

    “A new American revolution is long overdue. This
    revolution has been brewing in the hearts and minds of the people for
    many years, but this Independence Day, it shall take a new form as the
    American Revolutionary Army will march on each state capital to demand
    that the governors of these 50 states immediately initiate the process
    of an orderly dissolution of the federal government through secession
    and reclamation of federally held property. Should one whole year from
    this July 4th pass while the crimes of this government are allowed to
    continue, we may have passed the point at which non-violent revolution
    becomes impossible.

    “The time to sit idly by has passed. To remain
    neutral is to be complicit, just doing your job is not an excuse, and
    the line in the sand has been drawn between the people, and the
    criminals in Washington, D.C. While some timid souls will say that it is
    too early, that we can solve this problem through democratic means
    provided by government, that current levels of taxation are reasonable
    for the services provided, and that the crimes of this government are
    merely a tolerable nuisance, it may already be too late.

    “While there is risk in drastic action, the greater
    danger lies in allowing this government to continue unchallenged. So if
    you are content with the status quo, stay home, get fat, watch the
    fireworks from a safe distance, and allow this Independence Day to pass
    like any other. But if you see as we see, and feel as we feel, we will
    see you on the front lines of freedom on July 4th, 2013 for this, The
    Final American Revolution.”

    Excellent. Outstanding article. A call to action. We Liberty lovers need to start taking over local city councils, and state gov. When my mother went to a John Birch Society meeting in the late ’60’s the speaker told them “Our Children will be fighting and dying for Israel’s wars in the future”. Please everyone educate yourself on this War on Terror. Get Christopher Bollyn’s book: 911 Deception. Amazon or . America is going to reap what it sows. God help us.

    There are plenty of free Americans. I am one and have lived outside the gates for more than 20 years. The American system is the problem. Who does it favor? Not the free, only those that do its bidding. Nothing will change for the better in the “homeland”. In my day we called it our country. I respect the most the Americans who stay behind and face an uphill battle. May God bless you my friends.

  • JailBanksters

    Guilty until Proven Innocent, the new American Justus System.
    They don’t need a Trial, they know their Guilty because they did it, they know they did it because they’re Guilty. If they were Innocent they would be freed but they’re not, so they must be Guilty.

    It’s only Logical.

    And really, the US Government must believe every American is Guilty of something, that’s why everyone is Tracked, Traced, Monitored and Spied on 24/7. Ironically, the only ones NOT Tracked, Traced, Monitored and Spied on 24/7 are the ones making the Laws, the Bankers and Politicians and their the biggest bunch of Criminals in America. And these Politicians and Bankers make Al Capone look like a Choir Boy.

    • RattlerRider

      In a Nation with 64 million laws and counting on the books, everyone must be guilty of something. And since almost everyone sub contracted with them placing themselves in a subservient contractual position, maybe they think they own almost everyone.

      It’s traitorous to question the actions of the president of the United States. True patriots accept what he tells us wholeheartedly.

      Oh wait, sorry, I thought this was 2004.

      • TrevorLyman

        Actually it’s 2004, 2008, 2012, etc. It just depends on who is in power and who isn’t, as today plenty of democrats say if you disagree with the President now, you must be a racist. Both sides are extremely hypocritical. That’s why it’s not worth it to be on one side or the other but more in the constitutional middle.

  • JS

    If we continue to “lie down” and allow our present and irreparably broken system of
    Representative Democracy to remain-then we are doomed.

    We need a Participatory Democracy. “Participatory democracy strives to create
    opportunities for all members of a population to make meaningful contributions
    to decision-making, and seeks to broaden the range of people who have access to
    such opportunities”.

    Gitmo is where the CIA brainwashes average Muslims into becoming Al Qaeda killer types. Al qeada always was a CIA MK ultra type of operation. Graham Fuller was one of it chief admisitrators as a “national policy” started in the 80’s in Afghanistan. It continues to be a “shadow operation” and its no coincidence that Fuller is related to the Boston Bombing Tsarnaev patsies by marraige of his daughter to their corrupt uncle. The reality is that the US creates terrorists and uses them to carry out operations both against the US and other countires such as Chechnya and recently Lybia and now Sryia. Neocons such as MCCain proclaimed them as freedom fighters in Lybia. A few years ago when the LIFG killed Americans in Iraq they were terrorists. Now they are using them in Syria where foreign terrorists go to spread “democracy” by war ,terror and death. Now terrorists are freedom fighters financed by US, Isreal and its coterie compromised Arab states. The US government uses terrorists to create its Orwellian state by using fear and terror to institute Police state bureaucracy very similar to that used in the USSR under Jewish Bolshevik communist revolutionaries like Lenin, Trotsky and Kerensky. The Patriot Act was conceived long before 9/11 and implemented by the dual Israelis citizen Chertoff because of 9/11 which the US government was behind with Israelis assistance. So there is a direct relationship between Israel and America’s new DHS police state. It is in fact a Jewish inspired police state.

    • glock 19 fan

      You are right about the PATRIOT Act; its roots are in the mis-named (actually fraudulently named) Bank Secrecy Act of 1970 signed into law by Nixon. Certainly no secrecy there except from the depositor; it was/is an open book on private bank accounts for any govt official to read. It also was never able to track drug money (its claimed purpose). So Congress took a piece of junk that didn’t work and expanded it into something that doesn’t work on more alleged offenses.

      “There is no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there are not enough criminals one **makes** them. One simply declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What is there in that for anyone? But simply pass laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted and you create a nation of lawbreakers and cash in on guilt.”

  • AFVetinOH

    Wow … amazing to think that not a one of you gets the fact that the non-US citizens being held at Gitmo are there precisely because of that fact. The people there are prisoners of war or war criminals who have perpetrated unspeakable acts against humanity … or led organizations of people dedicated to doing the same. Now, I don’t for an instant think that Barack Hussein Obama wouldn’t take an opportunity to be the overlord of a tyrannical state beyond George Orwell’s wildest dreams, but to use the prisoners (of war) at Gitmo as an example is nothing more than a ruse. They are not US citizens and they are not civil criminals that should be tried in our courts (with all the rights and privileges of a US citizen) … to do so would be blasphemy against our laws. Now, it you want to talk about a person being held illegally, let’s talk about Rich Lowry … here is a man who did nothing more than exercise his Constitutional right of Free Speech … and is now being held as the “scape goat” for this administration’s continued charade about the events that transpired on the night of 9/11/13. That is something worth looking into!

    A government that fails to obey the rule of law is no longer a government by and for the people, it is a tyrannical, fascist monster that will devour what freedoms you still cherish. Our government has been subverted by the global elite bankers along with all the others. The vehicles of pseudo laws have already been voted in place. Our Congressional majority has already abandoned us, they serve to subvert the gullible and beguiled, all in the name of the welfare of the people!

    It is obvious that “Tyrants” do not abide by the law of the land-What has to happen is an economic revolution, where we all agree, a one month hiatus, No Work, No purchasing, No auto use, No football, baseball, basketball, No Flying of any kind No purchasing of GM foodstuffs – An Utter and complete shut down of the country until the demands of the people are met-Recission of all executive orders of the past 30 years. Charges against The people who caused this depression, and throw the bums in SCOTUS the hell out of their Comfortable lodgings-This is just for starters which will require a Grand Jury of average People Kissinger and Breznewski and other common criminals not allowed in-Washington has to be shut down period, It is a criminal enterprise-People have to be rounded up and charged and held for trials
    I like Madam Lafarge’s idea quite frankly, it guarantees no repeat offenders.

    So what is the writer of this article waiting for then? He asks us what we are waiting for, but I’m inclined to ask him the same thing. Since he has military experience, he is in a good position to act and push back against tyranny. So what is he doing? Who is he waiting for, before he will act?
    I’m not in the states, but if I was and saw these examples of police brutality and constitutional violations happening all around me, I’d style myself a Vigilante Patriot and deal to every corrupt cop and authority figure, and leave prominent messages with the bodies of these corrupt people so that there would be no question as to why they were dealt to. I’d make sure every one of these served as a warning to others in their class that they’d better act with integrity and in the people’s interest or they will meet a similar fate.

    I know most Americans are unaware of this fact, that Abraham Lincoln, one of the most heinous dictators the world has ever known, was able to occupy and control any state in America who opposed him. He, like Obama, considered the Constitution a hindrance and ignored it for the most part; incarcerated any and all who opposed his views or even spoke of peace.
    Understand this above all else, that Lincoln was able to control the population of our great country and bring it to ruin in order to centralize government, expand it to control the entire Nation — all this when govt and citizens had the same exact technology in weaponry. If he can do all that at a time when there were militias in every State, what of today when no one even speaks of militias.
    What the hell are we waiting for? And whose idea is it to have only young people in militias; there should never be an age barrier so long as a person is able-bodied and feels fit. I am 71 and want to join a militia but do not know where to join. If people are secretive about this we will never win against govt military. Wake up.
