GORDON DUFF: AMERICA’S GANGSTER SUPREME COURT: ERASING CITIZENSHIP

BADA BOOM! BADA BING!

RIGHTS?   YOU GOT NO STINKING RIGHTS!

By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

Kim Jong-il, “Supreme Leader” of North Korea can now hire a lawyer, Rudi Guliani maybe, pay a $35 fee and buy the United States Senate.  He can then pass laws to turn our military technology over to North Korea and “borrow” our navy to use the Pacific Ocean as his private bath tub.  The Mexican drug cartels can hire a lawyer, pay a $35 fee and buy a chunk of Congress too.  They can open the border, set up drug distribution across the US unfettered by unpleasant laws and agencies.

In fact, we may actually end up blackmailing countries into buying legislators just to keep safe from trade barriers or being put on “terrorist” lists.  I can foresee something akin to a stockmarket where, based on electoral prospects and committee assignments, legislators could go up and down in price like any other stock.  Imagine the embarrassment of constituents when they find their Senator is trading at bottom basement prices because of a mistress or some other indiscretion.  At least there won’t be any worry about bribes anymore.  Those will all be legal

It isn’t all that hard to overthrow a key law or legal protection under our current system.  All that is required is 4 or 5 lines to be added to an appropriations bill.  They only need to  become “Delaware corporations” and, according to our oddly influenced Supreme Court, they can do anything they wish.  They wish, let me tell you, they wish.  They can afford, let me tell you, they can afford to buy all the freedom and democracy we are willing to sell and the Supreme Court put the whole pile of it on the auction block.

We knew we had the worst Supreme Court in our history.  Half educated and mentally ill justices were nominated and bullied thru the Senate ratification process, yes through a United States Senate that was also one of the worst in our history, famous for spinelessness and greed.  The court began its path to taking control of the country thru overturning a presidential election, elections that are and have been jokes anyway, with a two party system long under the control of “fixers” and special interests.  Now, under the guise of giving “free speech” rights to corporations, the court has created nothing “free,” far from it.  It has given political control of the United States, control long wielded thru a soulless corporate media to any group, gang, cartel, foreign intelligence service or government that can hire a lawyer and file a form.

Within two electoral cycles, every law protecting the people of the United States and even the corporations they work for can be overturned by foreign interests that will buy control of every elected body in the United States.  No law, no regulation, no rule can stand, not under the deluge of cash heading our way like a storm.  American politics had, long ago, become a commodity to be bought and sold much had our justice system.  Money always bought access, money always bought influence and money bought “representation” that placed the powerful above the law, at least some of the time.  No society is classless, no society is perfect.  Our Constitution kept a balance, one sided for sure, but was there.  This is why Americans fought and died for it, why we love and respect it and why we will miss it.  It was never perfect, it needed the Bill of Rights and, so far has been amended 27 times.

We have had a long history of corporations getting into politics.  Then, however, the corporations were American.  They were known as the “Robber Barons” and American entered a period of corruption, poverty and near slavery as child labor, laws against unions, “the company store” and paid thugs ruled over American workers, workers fed milk made of chalk, bread made with wood and axle grease and half of America’s children died before the age of 6.  When the political power of corporations ended, these abuses stopped and we built the America we know today.  We have been down this road, we know it well, it is written into every history book.

Recent history has proven we still have Robber Barons.  Enron ran the early Bush administration like a hand puppet.  We arrested and imprisoned Bernie Madoff, one Robber Baron.  500 went free and are back at it, bribing public officials with money given to them, “bail out money,” meant to “save” our crumbling financial system, a system we know they will “crumble” again when enough suckers start investing again.

Our current system, imperfect though it is, with “gerrymandering” Congressional districts after each census and lobbyists secretly writing all our laws, is still “our” system, at least mostly ours.  That is going to end.  When America lost it’s wallet in the great crash and our national debt went to over 12 trillion dollars, the money in our corporations, the money and full control, moved overseas.  Not all corporations are evil.  Foreign ownership isn’t necessarily bad.  Most corporations  are businesses, manufacturing, trade, oil exploration and such.  However many are not.

In fact, laws that allow corporations to own corporations that own corporations makes it possible for any group, any dictator, criminal gang or even a foreign government to incorporate in places such as the British Virgin Islands.  Those corporations can then incorporate in the United States.  Now that the Supreme Court has given these secret organizations virtual citizenship with all the rights and none of the responsibilities, the real people of America, the ones who live and breathe, the ones who vote, raise children and fight for their country have now become meaningless.

We all know that money buys media.  The “Swiftboaters” proved that lies can swing any election.  It was Karl Rove’s “Manchurian Candidate” story that kept John McCain from being elected president in 2000.  These are nothing compared to the influence dictators and drug cartels can buy.

Once they buy influence, they then change laws.  Once laws are changed, they anything they want can be made legal or illegal, depending on what they wish.  There is nothing to stop them from opening the prisons and letting anyone out or jailing anyone they wish.  The Supreme Court once protected us from that.  Now they are only a joke.  From now on, judges around the country, from every city to the Federal Appeals Court and even the Supreme Court will be chosen by the foreign owned “cash soaked” corporations that can make or break any politician from dog catcher to President of the United States.

Laws can be passed to regulate the news, license reporters or tax the internet.  Books and movies can be banned, not on religious or moral grounds but because they may have insulted Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.  He is certain to use his oil money to buy a big chunk of Washington.  Maybe he and his friend Castro can get a little hammer and sickle stuck on the flag somewhere.

You say this all sounds like “too much?”  During the 30s, most states had forced sterilization laws, “eugenics” they called it.  Children were sterilized if a parent was an alcoholic or held “unusual political views.”  In schools, kids recited the pledge of allegiance will doing a Nazi salute.  This and a hundred other odd but easily verifiable facts were surgically removed from the history we teach our children.  Anyone who thinks that absolute power breeds moderation and civic responsibility is as insane as, well as a Supreme Court Justice.

    Dear Vets,

    I sent out an email to everybody that I know about how to get political attention. I used these techniques several years back to get legislation passed in three states and nationally. They used to work. I think that they will still work if followed carefully.

    1. Send a letter to your Congressman and Senators about this stupid Supreme Court decision. The letter should not be longer than one page. It must contain a short description of the problem and YOUR PREFERRED SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM AND ITS ORIGINS. (This means you can ask that they write legislation that defines corporations as business fictions and not equivalent to people as well as asking that they IMPEACH THESE IDIOTS)

    2. Send the same letter plus a cover letter to your state representatives and senators as well as your governor. Tell them that the states are not required to honor the Supreme Court’s decisions if those decisions impinge on states’s rights which this one surely would. State a solution like writing laws to defuse the effect of the law, passing resolutions of state sovereignty and laws repudiating this Supreme Court decision. Ask them to demand that the Governor demand the impeachment of the Supreme Court for their treasonous behavior.

    3. Send copies of all your letters to your local church, newspapers, radio and television stations. Ask them to do an investigation on this issue. Tell them that you are asking anyone with similar views to attend a meeting with the local office of Your US Senators and Congressmen as well as state level officials.

    4. Set up meetings with the local offices of your US Senators and Congressmen. Round up 5 to 10 people to go with you from your local area. Be sure to be organized, have a written statement of actions that you would like to see taken and take camera-phones and video cameras. You will be meeting with an aide. Ask them for a report on what the Senator/Congressman will be doing to follow up on your meeting.

    5. Send your video/voice to the local radio television. Send a letter describing your action reminding them of the previous letters and asking them to follow up with you at the next meeting.

    It will only take a few meetings before you start to see some real action. If you can get your ministers and priests to talk about this issue and get your church behind you..plus any other membership groups like vets etc. that you are involved with to send letters, set up meetings etc., action will happen faster.

    The more people who go to the meetings and write, the more media that you will get. The more media, the more reaction from your politicians. Be sure to tell your state reps to put pressure on the governor. Make sure that they know that you will be “watching” them to see if they try to make hay with this disgusting decision.

    Finally, go to worldreports.org and read the report there. Somebody at this site should be reporting on what Christopher Story is writing about. I will give you a hint. Remember when Russia got bailed out? Well, the money MADE on that “INVESTMENT” which should have been returned to the Treasury of the US and other countries WAS STOLEN NOT ONCE BUT MANY TIMES.

    Also, everybody should google the words “Just Plain Dumb” and Garner and Zbignew. Read a very interesting article by a former Army Ranger (Be sure to let the author know that MK told you about his brave article). Next, go look at Ron Paul’s video about the takeover of the US government by the CIA.

    We may be on the same side. I also knew Ted Guy. Our original group started on AOL back in the mid 90s. Ted Guy was a member along with Dave Hackworth. Ted had alot to say about McCain….

    I also agree with you on Kerry.

  5. JPHuminki  January 26, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    Michael: Your statement is literate and cogent, an exception for most right-wing bloggers, but it ignores the fact that no first Amendment right is absolute. You cannot shout “fire” in a theatre and expect to get away with it legally.

    The Supreme Court decision to end corporate activity in the electoral process over-turned over one hundred years of legislation and precedent. It is the equivalent of shouting “fire.” It is quite possibly the death knell of American democracy, which has been gravely wounded for over a generation.

    No individual is equivalent to the corporation, as it has so much more power and influence, as American history has shown over the last 150 years. To allow corporations to flourish unfettered, is like deregulating them in the market place, you will create a crisis. There is a political crisis upon us and it is due to an ideological adherence to an absolute.

    A great legal mind is nothing unless it is accompanied by a great human heart and conscious. You do know that lawyers are one of the most despised professions in this country? You do know that the majority of Congressmen have legal degrees don’t you? And what is the approval rating of Congress? And what do you suppose the approval rating of someone bragging about a great legal mind is? You’ve picked your side, Mike Griffith. I read recently a lot of Wall St. executives have been buying guns and getting permits, seems they are nervous about something.

  8. Leroy  January 26, 2010 at 8:26 am

    Good points including the point about the American nazi salute. Francis Bellamy (cousin of author Edward Bellamy) was a socialist in the Nationalism movement and authored the Pledge of Allegiance (1892), the origin of the stiff-armed salute adopted much later by the National Socialist German Workers Party. See the work of the symbologist Dr. Rex Curry.
    http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html

    The early pledge began with a military salute that was then extended out toward the flag. In practice, the second gesture was performed palm-down with a stiff-arm when the military salute was merely pointed out at the flag. Thus, the military salute led to the Nazi salute in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of the United States.
    http://rexcurry.net/pledge_military.html

    It was not an ancient Roman salute. That is a myth debunked by Dr. Curry, who showed that the myth came from the Pledge.
    http://rexcurry.net/roman-salute-oxford-english-dictionary.html

    American national socialists (including Edward Bellamy), in cooperation with Madame Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society, popularized the use of the Swastika (an ancient symbol) as a modern symbol for socialism long before the symbol was adopted by the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis) and used on its flag. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html

    See also http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

    The Bellamys influenced the National Socialist German Workers Party and its dogma, rituals and symbols (e.g. robotic collective chanting to flags; and the modern use of the swastika as crossed S-letters for “Socialism” under German National Socialism). Similar alphabetical symbolism was used under the NSDAP for the “SS” division, the “SA,” the “NSV,” et cetera and similar symbolism is visible today as the the VW logo (the letters “V” and “W” joined for “Volkswagen”). http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a2a1.html

    The Bellamys wanted the government to take over all food, clothing, shelter, goods and services and create an “industrial army” to impose their “military socialism.” See the video documentary at
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BssWWZ3XEe4

    It is the same dogma that led to the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): ~60 million killed under the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; ~50 million under the Peoples’ Republic of China; ~20 million under the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. http://rexcurry.net/socialists.html

    Today, the flag symbolizes authoritarianism in the USA. The historical facts above explain the enormous size and scope of government today, and the USA’s police state, and why it is growing so rapidly. They are reasons for minarchy: massive reductions in government, taxation, spending and socialism.

  9. Frances  January 26, 2010 at 8:02 am

    Dear Soap Box, I read many of your posts with the utmost respect but I don’t believe the right is “no more”. I believe if it ever actually came to a battle they would fight for the corporations and the rich. And I think this because I don’t believe many of them would ever be able to admit they made a mistake or were used. In order to protect their own egos, they will see our country fall and blame Obama and all us “socialists” – or is it “facists” or “communists” or my personal favorite “facist-socialists”? What I’m trying to say is, too many of them obviously don’t even know that if you are unsure what word to use, a book is available to help – the dictionary. And you know as well as I do that a large majority of them speak in sound bites. “empty suit” “Obummer” “smoke and mirrors”. And we all know who gave them those words. Do you think Limbaugh or Beck are going out of business? I doubt it. I often try to be nicer to the “mentally challenged” among us but I am pretty upset and tired of the ignorance that is costing us our country.

  10. Frances  January 26, 2010 at 7:35 am

    To steal one of Palin’s lines, “You betcha!” I read news stories online AND the comments. I must enjoy the feeling of wanting to tear out my own hair. All I can say is if Obama has truly done all the things they claim he has done in less than a year in office, then they are in big trouble as that would obviously make him much too powerful for them to get rid of. I have personal experience with someone whose favorite state was Denial (mine is Oregon). A psychiatrist told me my ex, Mr. Denial, had a personality disorder – a narcissistic sociopath. But yeah, we can call it delusional.

  11. Gordon Duff  January 26, 2010 at 6:59 am

    You are saying, I think, that people who consider themselves “conservatives” are generally delusional?

  12. Frances  January 26, 2010 at 6:50 am

    I understand perfectly why you aren’t disturbed by the consequences of this decision for the United States of America because you don’t live there. You live in the State of Denial.
    No matter what happens – it’s Obamas fault. No matter what Bush did, it’s Obama who ignored the constitution and trampled people’s rights. It’s Obama who destroyed the economy, not Bush and the republicans who led the way in deregulation. And these were Obamas justices, not justices appointed by republican conservatives. And it was Obama who, starting around 2000, wanted to give the rich huge tax breaks so they could “create” jobs. Where are those jobs? Must be in that State of Denial you live in.

    I was a good friend of Ted Sampley. US Veteran Dispatch was his site. Karl Rove came to Ted in 2000 to go after McCain. Ted would have done it anyway. We miss Ted. He was a great man. Ted and I used to talk about McCain all the time.

    What do you think it will be? Concentration camps for undesirables while the elites rebuild a new environment for themselves with slave labor. Or??? Will they skip the camps and just head right for their underground bunkers like Jesse Ventura says when the solar flares start to cook everything.? Perhaps some combination of the two?

    “When a block is deleleted, all attached blocks are also deleted”. This is worse than treason, we’ve been ambushed by our own. I saw this coming when a number of weeks ago a few Dem switched over to Repubs and a number of Dems announced they wouldn’t be seeking re-election. Just prior to SC announcement Gov. Crist made a speech in Orlando that the Film industry was coming into Florida. I receivied a card from Georgia telling me to withdraw from the Florida 2010 Senator race.

    Of note: In Jacksonville, Florida, running through the old Cecil Field is a new road, NEW WORLD ORDER.

    “The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to the point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself.

    You have once again nailed it…We will lose all of our country..our kids will be working as slaves …as will most of adults..
    The RIGHT have done us in, they now control anything and everything..

    I have been writing senators and signing petitions..effectively getting me placed on the big watch list, to be rounded up when you guys start something.
    Well the bastards can watch us all and be worried…because this protest will climb from thousands to millions..(but they are laughing at us..)until they are physically removed from their elevated stations.

    We, veterans and families, each in own way have fought and paid for the rights of Ameicans and this must not be kicked under the rug..each of us was trained as a solder and if we must,and we never completly lose those skills, we will take action. This action is not what we want to do..but an action we may have to do..
    Certainly with far more purpose and reason than chasing ghosts around the Middle
    East.
    This is a reason to fight..first in words and if necessary with guns.
    This is a true attack on America..It is not pardonable..it is Treason. far worse then the Rosenbergs…

    Gordon,
    Please stop spreading “the myth of mental illness” (the title of an excellent book by non-drug psychiatrist Thomas Szasz), I know you don’t intend to do so. Just stick to exposing defective personal conduct like spinelessness and greed on the part of the oligarchy’s running dogs. No insanity pleas were accepted at Nuremberg, nor should they be here, in the court of public opinion.

  24. Mike Griffith  January 25, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    It’s hard to tell, but I think this latest bizarre Gordon Duff rant is about the recent Supreme Court decision that abolished some patently unconstitutional government restrictions on political speech. To believe Duff’s hysterical analysis, one would never guess that all the Court did was to reinstate free speech rights for corporations, unions, and nonprofit groups that were protected until . . . gasp . . . 2002!

    One of the best opinions for the majority was written by Chief Justice John Roberts, who is arguably one of the ablest legal minds in recent history:

    http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/pdf/08-205P.ZC

    Here’s an excerpt from Chief Justice Roberts’ concurrence:

    “The Government urges us in this case to uphold a direct
    prohibition on political speech. It asks us to embrace a
    theory of the First Amendment that would allow censorship
    not only of television and radio broadcasts, but of
    pamphlets, posters, the Internet, and virtually any other
    medium that corporations and unions might find useful in
    expressing their views on matters of public concern. Its
    theory, if accepted, would empower the Government to
    prohibit newspapers from running editorials or opinion
    pieces supporting or opposing candidates for office, so long
    as the newspapers were owned by corporations—as the
    major ones are. First Amendment rights could be confined
    to individuals, subverting the vibrant public discourse
    that is at the foundation of our democracy.”

    Touche and Bravo! It’s downright amazing to see people who claim to be “liberals” attacking the Court for ending government restrictions on political speech.

    Here’s a brief summary of the Court’s decision:
