America has just come out of an 8 year crime spree.  From the highest levels of our government, working behind our backs with the terrorist we are now fighting to one Federal agency after another, taking orders from financial thieves, big polluters or opening our borders to a flood of illegals, crime after crime was committed against the American people.

Millions of Americans, mostly poor, rot in filthy prisons.  Two of our Supreme Court justices. Thomas and Scalia claim they would allow innocent to be executed, no matter how strong proof of innocence.  The insanity of these recent statements has shocked America.

We can murder the innocent if convicted by a "kangaroo court" but have no will to bring criminals in government and their masters in war industries, lie machines and drug cartels to account. 

These same two criminal psychopaths on the Supreme Court put the criminal regime in office even when their electronic "vote flipping" programs came up short.  4 years later they repeated the same act and now are laughing at America, their pockets dripping with cash and their hands dripping with blood.


Some have called for Tom Ridge to go to jail this week for admitting that he knew our leaders were little more than criminals and played along, keeping his mouth shut until it was time to sell a book.

CIA Director George Tenet did the same thing.  The "whistleblowers" numbered in the thousands from reporting crimes at the VA to death squads to, recently, the fact that the Bush Administration believed that Osama bin Laden was still a CIA asset, even on the morning of 9/11, 2001.  They had forgiven him for blowing up a couple of embassies and the USS Cole.  After all, his family and the Bush family had billions of dollars in Carlysle Group investments in common.

Bin Laden will never be tried.  His testimony would bring the arrest of dozens of our "former" highest officials.

Saving Bin Laden from capture at Tora Bora was possibly the only successful military or intelligence operation of the Bush presidency.

The health care industry paid millions to impeach President Clinton, one of the most popular and successful leaders in our history. 

We can’t even question Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld for treason, charges supported by massive evidence.  Maybe if they had more sex and did less killing, stealing and wiretapping, we might be a bit braver.

Oh, I forgot about Chandra Levy.  At least Clinton didn’t dump his women in a ditch when he was finished with them.

Every crime meant to weaken and destroy America is treason.  Getting away with treason is a family tradition for some.  Whether it is meeting with Iran to keep American hostages imprisoned or paying them off with weapons, the crimes of the last Bush administration were actually worse, much worse and the damage to America much more serious.

We elected a government to give us justice and closure.  How can we imprison millions for non-payment of child support, not paying parking tickets, using drugs or selling pornography when murderers, not only walk our streets, they fill our airwaves and pretend to be national heroes.

We all know who they are.

We all know the crimes.

We all know the proof, we hear it every day.

We all wonder why nothing is done.

Why is nothing done?  Why aren’t they arrested, tried and executed.  Treason is a capital crime, even if committed by the President of the United States.

I don’t care if we have to empty Congress and build a new prison.  I don’t care if half the CIA, FBI, Justice Department, Energy Department, Veterans Affairs and all the others have to begin paying for the things they did to America.

Why is nothing being done?  Never, in our history, have so many witnesses come forward, risked so much, and been gagged, some murdered, most ignored.

The crimes are staggering in dimension and number.  The evidence is overwhelming.

We need to get all of them, not just the bosses and ring leaders.  We need their lawyers, their publicists, they talking heads that supported them and then lied to cover their crimes, the newspaper and network owners, some of whom helped plan the crimes and everyone who looked the other way.

Those who openly cheered on need thousand of hours of community service to repay their debt, even if their crimes were only stupidty of joining organizations supporting treason, whether their motive was stupidity, fear, race hatred or simply that they despise freedom and democracy.

Doing nothing is a crime also.  Do we add more names to the list?  Is it time?  Have we waiting long enough?

A closing note from a reader:

Harry Truman  

Harry Truman was a different kind of President.  He probably made as many important decisions regarding our nation’s history as any of the other 42 Presidents.

However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House. The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence Missouri.

His wife had inherited the house from her mother and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there. When he retired from office in 1952, his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year.

Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an "allowance" and, later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year. 

After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There were no Secret Service following them. 

When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, "You don’t want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn’t belong to me. It belongs to the American people and it’s not for sale." 

Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, "I don’t consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise." 

As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food. Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth.

Today, many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale.   

Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed, "My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference!
