Both of the following videos are extraordinary and appalling. They record an A.D. 2010 shooting of Jeff Weinhaus by FBI and police officers.
First, the video is appalling in that law enforcement lured Weinhaus to a meeting and then tried to murder him for no apparent reason other than willful failure to kiss ass.
Second, it’s appalling that if government shoots a black man, all hell breaks loose, but when government shoots a white man, nobody seems to care.
Third, it’s appalling that this video was posted on February 14th, A.D. 2016, and, so far (after nearly two months on YouTube), it’s reportedly received only 36,063 views. Maybe that’s because the shooting took place almost six years ago. Still, this video should go viral. Public indifference to this shooting is scarier than the shooting itself.
One of the best things you can do to prevent future murders or attempted murders by government thugs is to send a link to this video to everyone on your email list. If we can make the video go viral, we can slow the government down. If we ignore the video and don’t “push it” to others, our indifference will encourage government to shoot even more Americans.
If you don’t care enough to protest when others get shot, don’t expect others to protest when you get shot.
Here’s an 85-minute long video of “The Secret Government”–Bill Moyers’ A.D. 1987 “scathing critique of the criminal subterfuge carried out by the Executive Branch of the United States Government to carry out operations which are clearly contrary to the wishes and values of the American people.”
In today’s brave, new Internet Age, 85-minutes is a long video. I don’t expect many people to start to watch it. I expect even fewer to finish watching it.
Even so, I’m posting this video to remind people that the evidence of government’s institutionalized despotism isn’t some recent “conspiracy theory” hatched by a bunch of tinfoil-hat-wearing crackpots. The evidence of that conspiracy has been substantial, available and accumulating for at least 30 years. Bill Moyer’s video is evidence that the conspiracy within government that we face today has been in motion for at least 30 years.
We’re not to be faulted for believing this conspiracy theory. We’re to be faulted for not acting on that belief.
Incidentally, this video was produced by PBS (Public Broadcasting Service)–which was and is known to embrace a leftist political slant. In A.D. 1987, the “left” sent some journalists (Bill Moyers et al) to investigate and report on growing government despotism. Last week, the “left” sent some thugs to disrupt the Donald Trump rally in Chicago. I don’t know that that proves anything, but the contrast seems striking.
Oh, please. That contemptible s.o.b. is exploiting the deaths of 14 people to try to advance his ridiculous gun-control agenda.
“Despite mounting evidence that Islamist terrorists were responsible for the mass slayings in California, the White House said Thursday that stricter gun control could have prevented the attack and vowed to keep “scrubbing” the nation’s laws for ways that President Obama can take executive action to restrict gun ownership.”
Gun control is President Obama’s solution to every problem.
Rowan County is located in Kentucky. Kim Davis is the Rowan County clerk who has repeatedly refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and has therefore been jailed by order of a federal judge.
Here’s a video of a Kentucky attorney, Michael Peroutka, explainting a constitutional defense for Ms. Davis at a rally. He argues that she’s broken no law, because there is no law requiring her to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals. Yes, there may be court opinions alleging that Ms Davis must issue such licenses, but court opinions are not “law”–they are only opinions.
As Mr. Peroutka pointed out, Article 1 Section 1 of the federal Constitution declares, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States . . . .” If all legislative powers are vested in Congress, no legislative powers are vested in the courts (or in the executive branch, which is currently famous for issuing executive orders that seem to have the force of “law”). That means that the judicial and executive branches of the federal government have no authority to legislate and “make” law.
If the only charges against Kim Davis are that she’s defined a court opinion and/or executive order, then she has broken no law and it’s wrong, fraudulent and illegal to jail her for breaking a law because there is no such law.
