Under cover of their super-vague Constitution and arbitrary-ruling judges, the elites have continually profited from our keeping ourselves in the game. They've profited in our demands for a species-mature governance of rights, equality, and the rule of law -- all the while slamming and jolting us with the corruptions that break down our Constitutional governance and promise to carry us into despotism. Now, in 2006, we're very close to absolute despotism, and certainly closer to it than we've ever been before.
The dual-party, three-branch, Bush-Cheney Illegitimacy is a world-class, fascist, proto-despotism. It has usurped the presidency and entrenched its power with highly placed, traitorous individuals in all three branches, working in mutual-protection collusions that have collapsed the Constitution's vague and weak checks and balances.
The Bush-Cheney proto-despotism has hit our electoral system with a lethal one-two punch. First, they've privatized the electoral system with corporate windfall profit machines dependent on the proto-despotism for their profits. Second, they've crashed the electoral system with the easily hacked vote-counting software provided by those corporate profit machines, software from the corporate predators at Diebold, ES&S, and Sequoia.
Under the color of law, the proto-despotism has treasonously cheated us out of our democratic elections. Having suppressed our electoral system to meaninglessness, there is no reason to suppose that the proto-despotism's players will give up their ill-gotten power in any future controlled election. Predators do not give back their profits and power because somebody sits down and reasons with them. They stop grabbing when they are stopped by overwhelming force. Powerful predators in all three branches are deeply involved in this electoral system treason.
The proto-dspotism's hack-o-matic vote counting software will own our elections until we figuratively kill that software and its predatory controllers with overwhelming force.
The Bush-Cheney proto-despotism is not politics as usual. It is the 2nd largest unconstitutional anti-law regime in our national history. It is an anti-law regime begun by traitorous fascist thugs masquerading as US Supreme Court judges, ruling in Bush v. Gore, December 2000.
1. In Bush v. Gore, five of the Supremes (Kennedy, O'Connor, Rehnquist, Scalia, and Thomas), failed to protect the rights of US citizens, violated the Constitution, created a massive unconstitutional anti-law regime, and violated their oaths to uphold the Constitution. Collectively, those things are established acts of treason, defined in the findings of treason for the 1860s secessionist state legislators.
Additionally, Bush v. Gore began the 18 USC 241 conspiracy felony against the rights of all citizens to have a president elected in accord with the Constitution.
As with legislative immunity, judicial immunity does not extend to cases of treason or felony. The five co-conspirator Supremes are all treasonous Constitutional criminals and felons-in-waiting. Their only rightful place is in federal prison.
By January 2001, the co-conspirators in the Bush-Cheney Illegitimacy's 18 USC 241 felony against the nation included the five Supremes, Clinton and many members of his administration, and Bush-Cheney and many members of the Illegitimacy. They are all treasonous Constitutional criminals and felons-in-waiting. Their only rightful place is in federal prison.
The co-conspirators' protection from imprisonment is only in the unconstitutional collusions that exist now between powerful individuals in the three branches of the national government. Those collusions unconstitutionally elevate the treasonous Constitutional criminals and felons-in-waiting above our rule of law.
The December 2000 usurpation of the presidency was done by the "independent judiciary", an 18th Century elitist mechanism obviously intended to benefit the class-race elite. The "independent judiciary" has obviously and massively failed us. Given pervasive governmental corruption that we cannot control, the time of zero judicial accountability to the sovereign people is past. Nonpartisan election and the possibility of recall, both by majority decision of the citizens of the court's jurisdiction, are in order.
The proto-despotism has bankrupted our nation morally, financially, and legally -- at home and internationally.
The proto-despotism has unconstitutionally and illegally made a war of aggression in Iraq. It has unconstitutionally and illegally maintained a torture-murder gulag. It has done those things for the purposes of Empire, war profiteering, and power.
In April 2006, some of the proto-despotism's retired generals tried to point the people away from the guilt that Bush-Cheney and Rumsfeld share with many generals and admirals for the felony murders of our soldiers in Iraq. The original six of the retired generals were Zinni, Odom, Newbold, Trainor, Eaton, and Batiste. They called for Rumsfeld's too-little-too-late resignation.
The retired generals' grounds for demanding Rumsfeld's resignation were obviously substantial. Rumsfeld has clearly demonstrated gross incompetence at every imaginable level. However, the retired generals' pseudo-revolt ignores the obvious fact that Rumsfeld's gross incompetence is exactly the competence that Bush-Cheney and the PNAC dolts depend on to further their program of whole-world financial rape hinged on military power. This obvious fact, all by itself, marginalized to nothingness the Rumsfeld-must-go revolt.
The retired generals surely know that Bush-Cheney and Rumsfeld, along with many generals and admirals, can and should be criminally prosecuted under 18 USC 241 for violating their soldiers' rights to be sent to war only on the expressed order of Congress. When we hold them responsible for having knowledge of that simple Constitution-and-laws situation, we see that the Rumsfeld-must-go revolt is even further marginalized to nothingness.
No president has war powers under the Constitution, and everybody in the felony conspiracy of the unconstitutional invasion of Iraq knows it. No military or naval officer swears loyalty to any president or to any Congress.
2. The officer's oath of loyalty is to the Constitution, not to the President, and not to the Congress. "I ... solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same ...".
The Constitution clearly gives war powers ONLY to the Congress. There is no Constitutional provision for any branch to re-assign its specific powers to any other branch or individual. The federal statute that allows for Congress to give away its war powers to the president is unconstitutional. Any use of that federal statute creates a massive unconstitutional anti-law regime.
Had the generals and admirals been honorable men loyal to the Constitution, they would have rejected the illegal order from the President to invade Iraq, resigning or being fired, as necessary. As it is, they dishonorably defiled their oath and sworn allegiance, complied with the illegal order, and violated the citizen rights of their soldiers to be sent to war only on the expressed order of Congress. In so doing, they violated 18 USC 241, felony conspiracy against rights. 18 USC 241 defines any death resulting from the rights violation as felony murder. It calls for convicted co-conspirators in murderous rights violations to be sentenced to life imprisonment or to death.
Note that there is no statute of limitations on conspiracy to commit felony murder.
Note that the co-conspirators facing the possibility of life imprisonment or the death penalty for the Iraq invasion include Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Perle, Wolfowitz, Powell, Rice, Ashcroft and Gonzales, as well as the 373 Senators and Member of Congress who voted to unconstitutionally give Bush the war powers that are the exclusive prerogative of Congress. Felony forfeits legislative immunity. Making it a three-branch hat-trick, US District Court Judge Joseph Tauro rejected a request for a preliminary injunction to prevent Bush and Rumsfeld from initiating the unconstitutional and illegal Iraq invasion. (John Doe I, et.al., v. Bush & Rumsfeld, 03-1266, 13 March 2003. The list of plaintiffs included six Congressmen.) Tauro also faces the possibility of life imprisonment or the death penalty.
