Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: Gestapo America Via James Comey

“I was just following orders.” – James Comey is a board member of the Clinton Foundation – I am sure almost NONE of you knew that

Note: Every single syllable of every word Dr. Roberts writes below is accurate. The only “sidebar” I would add is that, for many of you who voted for Obama, Obama reneged on his promise to roll-back everything the Bush Admin had done to destroy the Constitution and made every Bush initiative more Constitutionally destructive.

FBI Director James Comey got Hillary off the hook but wants to put you on it. He is pushing hard for warrantless access to all of your Internet activity.

Comey, who would have fit in perfectly with Hitler’s Gestapo, tells Congress that the United States is not safe unless the FBI knows when every American goes online, to whom they are sending emails and from whom they are receiving emails, and knows every website visited by every American.

In other words, Comey wants to render null and void the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution and completely destroy your privacy rights.

The reason Washington wants to know everything about everyone is so that Washington can embarrass, blackmail, and frame on felony charges patriots who stand up in defense of the US Constitution and the rule of law, and dissidents who criticize Washington’s illegal wars, reckless foreign policies, and oppression of American citizens.

Washington’s demand for power has nothing to do with our security. It has to do with destroying the security that the US Constitution gives us.

The security that Comey wants to protect is not our security or the national security of the United States. Comey’s intent is to make Washington secure despite its violations of statutory law and the US Constitution. The way Comey intends to do this is by intimidating, harassing, and arresting Washington’s critics.

Comey wants the unconstitutional power to demand from the providers of telephone and Internet services all records and information about you. These demands are not to be subject to oversight by courts, and the communication companies that serve you are prohibited from telling you that all of your information has been given to the FBI.

US Senators rushed to stick their swords into the Fourth Amendment. John Cornyn slapped an FBI-written amendment on the Electronic Communications Privacy Act Amendments Act of 2015. This caused the American Civil Liberties Union and Amnesty International to withdraw their support for the act, which caused the act to be withdrawn.

Senator John McCain rushed to the aid of the FBI. This Constitution-hating senator proposed an amendment to a criminal justice appropriations bill that would use a provision in the unconstitutional PATRIOT Act to grant the unlimited unaccountable power to the FBI to totally destroy your privacy.

McCain’s amendment failed, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) changed his vote so that he could negate the Senate’s vote with a vote to reconsider.

The FBI’s senators will continue with amendments to legislation, related or not, until they deliver to the FBI the power it wants.

Unfortunately, most Americans today, unlike their forebears, are too ignorant and uneducated to know the value of the privacy rights that our Founding Fathers put in the US Constitution. The imbeciles say nonsense such as:  “I haven’t done anything wrong. I have nothing to fear.”   God help the imbeciles.

If the American people were sufficiently sophisticated, they perhaps would wonder why such a large chunk of the US Senate had rather represent the FBI than the American people, their constituents who elected them to represent the people in the state, not a police power in Washington.

Why are so many US senators more responsive to the FBI’s desire for Gestapo police power than they are to the civil liberties embodied in the US Constitution?

As the Bill of Rights Defense Committee and the Defending Dissent Foundation show, the Orlando shootings, the Dallas shootings and whatever shootings, real or staged, next occur have nothing to do with the FBI’s demand to completely destroy all privacy rights of the American people.

What’s that I hear? You say you knew nothing about this? Little wonder. Your media consist of people well paid to deceive you and to deliver you into a Police State. To strip you of all constitutional protection and deliver you unprotected to a police state is the function of the New York Times, Washington Post, Fox «News», CNN, the rest of the presstitute print and TV media and many Internet sites.

Employment Report Farce And More On The Comey/Clinton Connection

The non-farm payroll is nearly as corrupted as the James Comey/FBI and Loretta Lynch/Justice Dept cover-up of Hillary Clinton’s crimes.  A poll done by the ABC New affiliate out of Virginia showed that nearly 95% of those polled thought that Hillary should be criminally prosecuted:  8 News Daily Poll.

I suspect that a large portion of the public is beginning to understand how tragically and catastrophically corrupted the entire U.S. political and financial system has become, which means I doubt many people believe today’s non-farm payroll report either.  I’m not going to “legitimize” it by analyzing the numbers other than to say that the headline report conflicts drastically with every single private-sector economic survey that includes an employment measurement index.  Drastically.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts posted by commentary on James Comey yesterday.  His readership globally is bigger than either the online NY TImes or the Wall St. Journal issues.  One of his readers sent Dr. Roberts this additional on James Comey:

In 2003, Comey became the deputy attorney general at the Department of Justice (DOJ). In 2005 he signed on to serve as general counsel and senior vice president at defense contractor Lockheed Martin. In 2010 he joined Bridgewater Associates, a Connecticut-based investment fund, as its general counsel. On September 4, 2013, James B. Comey was sworn in as the seventh Director of the FBI. Talk about the revolving door in and out of government ! A shill for the private defense industry and later a wall street investment firm, two of the groups that support Hillary\’s assent to the Throne.

Today’s thoroughly rigged labor report and the cover-up of Hillary Clinton’s crimes further supports my thesis that the U.S. has fully descended into a Banana Republic – welcome to Hell.

James Comey Has Been Covering Up The Clintons’ Messes For Decades

The entire process to exonerate Hillary was highly orchestrated.  The canary in the coal mine was the illegal meeting between Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton.  The Lynch/Comey connection stretches back to 2013 via HSBC and the Justice Department’s decision to not prosecute HSBC for money laundering on behalf of drug dealers and terrorists (note:  HSBC is one of the primary Comex bullion banks and the “custodian” of the gold in the GLD trust).  Comey was put on HSBC’s board of directors.

The “glass is half full” crowd in this country breathed a sigh of relief when Eric Holder left the Justice Department to receive his graft payments at Covington Burling, thinking the most corrupt AG in history just left.  Sorry, Loretta Lynch is at least Holder’s equal in the corruption department.  I’ve got a 1 oz gold Philharmonic that says Lynchs slides into a highly paid partner position at Covington Burling when her duties as the Clintons’ fluffer is finished at “Justice.”

The Clinton’s and James Comey go back over 20 years.

In his last day in office, Bill Clinton pardoned 450 people. One of those pardoned was Robert Palmer who pleaded guilty for his part in the Clinton’s “Whitewater” scandal.  The biggest pardon was for fugitive Marc Rich, who fled the U.S. to Switzerland to evade $100’s of millions in taxes on his commodity trading profits.  Bill Clinton was blatantly sleeping with Marc Rich’s wife, Denise, in their Fifth Avenue penthouse as part of the price for the pardon.

Mary Jo White (Dem) who is now head of the SEC, was appointed to investigate these pardons. After little progress was made, she was replaced by James Comey (Rep) who found “no illegality” on Bill Clinton’s part

Hillary Clinton Could Get Away With Murder – Defining Deviance Down

I don’t even know what to say anymore. The U.S. Government has collapsed into complete Banana Republic status. It’s a free-for-all for those in position to use their position of power for personal gain. Hillary Clinton will go down in the annals as one of the most corrupt politicians in the history of the world. She’s the “Idi Amin” of U.S. politics.

It was announced today that Dept of Justice has closed its investigation of Hillary. For me that decision was telegraphed when Loretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton illegally. I doubt the DoJ even opened a formal investigation. These people could care less if the portion of the public that is paying attention is pissed off. No one will do anything about it and what would you do if you wanted to do something about it?   Anyone who votes for Hillary is a complete moron.   Anyone who votes, period, is a moron.  Your vote does not matter.

My friend/colleague – John Titus, Best Evidence Productions – has written more commentary on the the planetary-sized political abortion called Washington, DC – enjoy:

The FBI’s announcement that it won’t recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton is not only a stunning repudiation of the rule of law, it’s a coronation of American royalty. The FBI told us that Hillary broke the law, but that it’s of no consequence because she, like a queen (or king), is above the law.

You don’t need to look beyond the four corners of the very FBI announcement that exonerates Clinton to see that she committed a crime carrying up to a 10-years sentence in prison. The FBI’s internal inconsistency—concluding that Clinton is above the very law that the FBI just finished showing that Clinton violated—is a glaring rejection of the rule of law, and a formal adoption of a legal system premised on royalty.

What’s so noteworthy is how far the FBI went out of its way to make it clear that while Hillary Clinton is above the law, the rest of us remain very much at its mercy (like serfs in a kingdom).

Before showing as much, let’s be clear about what the rule of law is, and about its mortal enemy, the rule of kings. When it comes to governance, there are two and only two systems. They are mutually exclusive. Either the law is reigns supreme over the land, or men do. It’s one or the other.

Since its inception, the U.S. has self-identified as a nation of laws, not of men. The U.S., of course, has never lived up to this impossibly perfect ideal, but there is no dispute whatsoever that the rule of law is the reigning ideal against which justice is measured. The negation of the rule of law is the reign of a king (or queen).

The American implementation of the rule of law has several corollaries, including:
(1) because the law is supreme, no one is above the law;
(2) there isn’t one set of rules for some people and a different set of rules for other people; and
(3) because the same laws must be applied equally in all cases, factually identical cases from the past determine how the law applies in future cases.

The rule of law rejects the notion that anyone is above the law. As such, it stands in diametric opposition to the royalty model, in which the king is the law. This royalty principle was most succinctly expressed by William Blackstone in his legal treatise: “The king can do no wrong.”

The FBI’s announcement openly mocks all three rule-of-law principles, as FBI Director James Comey himself made clear. In each and every instance, Comey bends the law around Hillary Clinton, exactly as a dutiful civil servant of the king would do.

1. No One But Hillary Clinton Is Above the Law

FBI Director James Comey made out a clear-cut case that Hillary Clinton violated 18 U.S.C. 793(f):

2. Gross Negligence Is the Legal Standard for Ordinary People; for Hillary Clinton, the Legal Standard Is “Intent to Violate Laws”

By the express terms of 18 U.S.C. 793(f), criminal culpability exists where there is a finding of “gross negligence.” But James Comey informed us that the legal standard is different for Hillary Clinton and her coterie: “we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information”

3. While Hillary Is Free to Break National Security Laws Because She’s Special, You Aren’t

James Comey: “To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions. But that is not what we are deciding now.”

Well, there you have it. We’ve known for some time that the rule of law is dead in the U.S. What we didn’t know is who the new king or queen would be. The FBI just told us in three different ways.

All Hail, Queen Hillary—and keep your own noses clean, serfs.

Now let’s see how many peons, having been apprised by the highest authorities in the land that there is in fact a Queen ruling over them, actually line up to vote for Her Highness so as to advance their own subjugation. This massive public display of abject and willing servility, just 4 months away now, promises to be breathtaking.

Hillary Clinton Proves The U.S. Is Now A Total Banana Republic

When I was in high school studying history and government, my friends and I used to laugh at the Latin American Banana Republics.  A “Banana Republic” is one in which the ruling class of elites exploit Governmental power for their own benefit at the expense of Untitledthe rest of the population.  Rule of Law is replaced by Rule of Those in Charge.   The leaders rake in massive amounts of illegal wealth and stand completely immune from prosecution. (click to enlarge)

The saga of Hillary Clinton is the saga of the United States’ descent into Banana Republic status.  I knew when it was announced that she was “voluntarily” meeting with FBI Director James Comey that the fix was in.  I knew it before that.   I knew it when Bill Clinton illegally and unethically met with Loretta Lynch.  A meeting she knew better than to coordinate.  But that told me the fix was in.  Interestingly there’s a deep connection between Lynch and Comey.

I had my good friend and colleague, John Titus of Best Evidence Productions, write a guest commentary about the latest step into Banana Republic Hell taken by the U.S., led by Hillary Clinton…

Back in April, I went on record stating that Hillary Clinton would be completely exonerated:

Given their [Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey’s] prior associations with HSBC, they’re in on this whole game, they’re in on letting banks run the whole economy—the whole country. [The banks] are in full control of the the government. They’re in full control of the DOJ. They are in full control of prosecutorial decisions. And nothing is going to happen to Hillary Clinton, and I mean zero.

Coup D’etat:  The Banks Rule The U.S.  (25:16 mark if link goes to wrong timestamp)

This post explains that statement. Hopefully it can be used as a means of fast-forwarding to the end of ludicrously protracted episodes of Kabuki legal theater like the one we just witnessed.

Once you understand that the rule of law is dead in the U.S., that it’s been replaced by a small network of readily identifiable agents operating on behalf of criminal banking enterprises headed by Goldman Sachs, there’s no need to waste any time on stories like Hillary selling state secrets out of her basement, or whatever it is she does down there. You’ll spare yourself the embarrassment of ever believing that the outcome of cases like Clinton’s are ever in doubt.

In March of this year, I released a video called “The Veneer of Justice in a Kingdom of Crime,” which shows that the rule of law is a dead letter in the U.S. It also explains that the only alternative to the rule of law is the rule of men, and that in the U.S. that means Goldman Sachs:   Video Link

Goldman Sachs is a criminal enterprise. It perpetrated massive criminal frauds and got away with all of them. The worst of these was Goldman’s Hudson deal. The Senate and the media fixated on Abacus and Timberwolf. Those cases, though bad, are at least arguable. Hudson is not. It is black letter textbook criminal fraud.

Goldman pooled residential mortgages sitting on its books based on their high likelihood of failure. To dupe its customers into buying the doomed Hudson pool, Goldman put $6 million of its own money into Hudson and touted this fact in marketing materials. Secretly, though, Goldman bet $2 billion that Hudson would fail, and concealed its huge downside bet from investors. Goldman’s bet paid out $1.7 billion, which came directly from the pockets of the investors it deceived. It was a $1.7 billion theft, end of story.

The facts of Abacus and Timberwolf weren’t nearly as clean, which is probably why we heard about those instead of Hudson, which was a slam dunk.

But Goldman Sachs, which runs the Justice Department, exonerated itself of all wrongdoing. The two highest-ranking DOJ officials responsible for Goldman’s exoneration—Eric Holder and Lanny Breuer—came to the DOJ from Covington & Burling, Goldman’s law firm. After the 5-year statute of limitations for criminal fraud ran out, both men returned to Covington. Each makes several million dollars a year.

During their temp assignments at the DOJ, both men formally declared the rule of law to be dead. That’s a big deal. It’s one thing for officials to disregard the law as a matter of factual opinion. What Breuer and Holder did was another matter altogether: they openly announced that the rule of law is dead in principle too. It’s a very big and very dangerous difference.

This happened in late 2012 and early 2013—not long after the DOJ exonerated Goldman. Both Breuer and Holder went on record and repeatedly stated that criminal laws would not be enforced against certain banks because doing so would destabilize the financial system. They didn’t cite any authority for this radical position because there isn’t any. The lack of any legal authority isn’t surprising since the rule of law dates back to the year 1215, and no law since that time would be premised on the notion that the law itself can be freely ignored.

Instead of citing any law, Breuer and Holder both claimed that “experts” were making decisions about financial destabilization. Here’s the problem. The only “experts” who appear in the record are Wall Street lawyers and CEOs generally and Goldman Sachs in particular. In other words, the TBTF banks tell the DOJ that criminal prosecution will destabilize the financial system, and the DOJ obeys. The law comes second, which in a 2-way race means it’s dead last.

So the rule of law has been dead in the U.S. for some time now, and it’s been supplanted by Goldman Sachs, which rules by edict. The “Veneer” video drills into how we know it’s Goldman in granular detail.

Of course, Breuer later lied and said that his destabilization “experts” came from the government. The problem for Breuer is that both houses of congress investigated his claim and couldn’t find any such regulators. That’s because there aren’t any. Lanny Breuer is just a liar.

Again: the only financial stability experts of record are Wall Street banks themselves, whom Breuer freely admitted came to his conference to tell him that they’d destroy the economy if he prosecuted. Goldman Sachs is the only bank in that regard that’s been disclosed by name so far.

Now, Goldman’s candidate in the presidential race is Hillary Clinton. This is how it was easy to set the odds of a Hillary Clinton indictment at zero from day one.

But what about Loretta Lynch, the Attorney General, and James Comey? Couldn’t they indict (Lynch) or at least recommend indictment (Comey)? After all, they’re not from Goldman’s law firm.

True, but both were very carefully vetted by the financial criminals at—interestingly enough—HSBC. HSBC is an admitted criminal money launderer for drug dealers and terrorists. It was the money-laundering case against HSBC, in fact, where Eric Holder announced that he wouldn’t prosecute due to fears of destabilization. This happened in December 2012.

Lynch and Comey both played a role at HSBC.

Loretta Lynch was HSBC’s “prosecutor.” When Holder punted on the HSBC case, Lynch did something highly unusual: she kept the case open on Judge John Gleeson’s docket. Gleeson was openly puzzled by the move, but saw no reason not to go along with the procedure, however odd, since Lynch and HSBC had both agreed to it.

What Judge Gleeson didn’t know was that the HSBC case, having been held open like it was, would be used as a pretext for the DOJ to claim that it couldn’t identify regulators on active cases (like HSBC). That’s exactly what Mythili Raman claimed when asked by Congress in May of 2013. It was a way for her to duck the fact that Breuer had been lying through his teeth, and that all of the DOJ’s financial destabilization experts were, in fact, the banks themselves. Less than a year after that hearing, Raman ended her 17-year DOJ career and went to…. Breuer and Holder’s law firm. See how this works?

This brings us to James Comey. In early 2013, Comey joined HSBC’s board of directors. Only then was Comey’s name floated as a replacement for FBI Director Robert Mueller. By accepting blood money from HSBC, Comey signaled the financial criminals that he’d play ball and ignore the law, as he did today when he focused on intent rather than gross negligence, which is sufficient by itself for indictment and conviction.

Lynch sent the same signal to the financial criminals in charge by entering into a screwy settlement agreement that flummoxed a long-standing judge but that provided cover for Lanny Breuer’s preposterous lies about government regulators assessing the financial impact of criminal prosecutions.

Whenever you want to know how a high-profile case like Clinton’s will turn out, just turn off the TV and throw the New York Times and other mainstream piles of misinformation into the trash can. Just spend 10 minutes or so on google looking at the bios of the key decision makers, and the clues will hit you in the face harder than Earnie Shavers, I promise.
