Dershowitz: Perry Indictment ‘What Happens in Totalitarian Societies’

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

A grand jury indictment simply means that sufficient evidence was presented to go forward with a trial.

Perry1CMS_jpg_800x1000_q100The indictment of Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry over abuse of power and coercion is reminiscent of the way that political dissent was handled in the Soviet Union, legal scholar and Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV’s “America’s Forum.”

Skip to a 1:40 minutes to Allen Dershowitz a liberal democrat law professor doesn’t agree with the indictment as well.

Dershowitz, who make clear he would never vote for Rick Perry, said Monday the governor’s indictment was driven by politics and is representative of “what happens in totalitarian societies.”

He said disagreement with Perry’s actions is “not the basis of what a criminal charge should be,” adding that Americans have the ability to “vote against him” if they don’t like his actions.

 “The two statutes under which he was indicted are reminiscent of the old Soviet Union — you know, abuse of authority,” Dershowitz said Monday. “The idea of indicting him because he threatened to veto spending unless a district attorney who was caught drinking and driving resigned, that’s not anything for a criminal indictment. That’s a political issue.”

Perry was indicted Friday, accused of abuse of power by withholding funds to the district attorney’s office in Travis County — county seat of Austin, Texas — following the drunk-driving arrest of county District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg. He was also charged with coercion, as opponents claimed his veto of funds for the county’s integrity unit was an attempt to force Lehmberg to resign.

Similar cases of using the criminal justice system to attack political adversaries are cropping up in other states, including Alaska, New York, and Virginia, Dershowitz said, adding that the practice has to end because it makes people “very suspicious of criminal justice and of the legal system.”

“Right now, we are seeing it. It’s beginning to spread. And that’s why it’s so important to put a stop to it now, and to say the criminal law is reserved for real crimes, not for political differences where a party in power or out of power gets revenge against the other party. That’s just not the way to use the criminal justice [system],” he said.

More from Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley who doesn’t agree with the indictment as well.

You Work This Many Hours a Week to Pay Your Federal Taxes

From the Tax Foundation we haven’t seen anything yet.

This is what the poser has in store for We the People in 2015

He will have slithered out of Dodge and in his twisted delusional mind  he will believe he saved the jobs for his members of congress who share his Marxist ideology but are nothing more thank Klingon’s who need to be kicked to the curb.

The Daily Signal

Stephen Moore, who formerly wrote on the economy and public policy for The Wall Street Journal, is chief economist at The Heritage Foundation. Read his research.

 

We talk about taxes as a “burden” because they reduce the take-home pay of American workers, the profits of American businesses, and the purchasing power of American consumers.

Over the past century, the overall federal tax burden steadily grew from about 5 percent of national income to almost 20 percent. Over the last decade, tax receipts declined due to the recession and fiscal policy, but taxes have increased over the last five years. This trend roughly corresponds with the growth in government spending.

Americans effectively work one day a week to pay federal taxes and the other four days to pay their bills and take care of their families. Taking into account state and local taxes, almost one in three dollars of a worker’s earnings go to the tax collector. Taxes are, for many households, the single largest expenditure item in the family budget.

Ferguson Again Erupts in Violence, Spreads to Neighboring Town – Rioters Throw Molotov Cocktails, Shots Fired at Police

crew-2231By Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

This is no longer about the shooting death of a street thug.

It’s more of a horrible situation as uneducated blacks take to the streets and escalate violence to their own community and the police. 

Perhaps is an underlying factor is their votes for Obama’s change went for naught.

Blacks across the country have more that twice the unemployment rate than their white counterparts since Obama’s destruction of the U.S. economy began.

Is there any wonder why “work boots,” were untouched by the rioters? :-)

11:20pm CST: Breaking news tonight out of Ferguson, Missouri, as a day of stunning         news developments followed by relatively peaceful protests have  devolved into a night of Molotov cocktails and tear gas.

 

And for the first time, the violence has apparently spread to the neighboring Dellwood, MO — where stunned anchors at KSDK News Channel 5 reported just minutes ago that the “Dellwood Market” had been set on fire.

This with the scheduled 2nd night of curfew just 40 minutes away.

Earlier in Ferguson, rioters demanded police officer be “arrested for murder” and hurled more than a dozen molotov cocktails at police. KSDK also reported that at least 3 shots were fired, either at police or into a crowd on West Florissant.

Pentagon’s robo-dog plan had ethics problem: Nepotism and a cover up at its finest

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath  Keeper and Patriot.

Sadly there will be no time or effort put into investigating another government-run fiasco, because the House Oversight Committee doesn’t have the time.

What are you asking me to believe that a member of the current administration would play the nepotism game and then attempt to cover it up?

WASHINGTON — The director of DARPA, the Pentagon office responsible for developing secretive high-tech gadgets, took an exceptional interest in developing bomb-sniffing robo-dogs five years ago.

The goal: to help trace the origins of roadside bombs that were killing hundreds of American soldiers a year in Afghanistan.

But there was a problem. The company that came up with the idea just happened to be run by Vince Dugan, the father of the DARPA director, Regina Dugan.

Pentagon inspectors now say Regina Dugan “used her position to endorse a product” in violation of ethical rules. The investigative report was completed last year but just released by the Pentagon Wednesday — with about half its contents blacked out — in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

Navy Bans Bibles then Kicks Atheist Group to the Curb – Puts Bibles Back in Hotels

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

How long are We the People going to sit back and take this nonsense?

Remembering, Edmund Burke’s admonishment;The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

 

Freedom Outpost

KJV FAMILY FAITH VALUES BIBLE BLK

Atheists from the Freedom from Religion Foundation had complained back in March to the US Navy that the Navy was unconstitutionally showing preference to Christianity.

 

As a result, the Navy sent out a memo in June informing all lodge managers that any religious materials, including Bibles, would be removed from the rooms under “established procedures for the lost-and-found property.” However, upon a review of its policies, the Navy ordered that the Bibles, largely furnished by Gideons International, be returned to the rooms.

Sam Grover, the attorney for the atheist group, complained that the Bible had been the only religious book seen in the lodges for the past 20 years.

“That demonstrates the Navy‘s preference for Christianity over all other religions and nonreligious sects,” he told Stars and Stripes.

“That decision and our religious accommodation policies with regard to the placement of religious materials are under review,” Navy spokesman Cmdr. Ryan Perry wrote in an email to Stars and Stripes. “While that review is under way, religious materials removed from Navy Lodge rooms will be returned.”

Stars and Stripes went on to report:

Grover said the Freedom from Religion Foundation does not expect Bibles or other religious materials to disappear from lodges. Instead, chaplains could make the Bible available to those who request it or Navy lodges could supply a collection of religious and atheist texts at the front desk, he said.

The group suggested lodges offer patrons the Born Again Skeptics Guide to the Bible, which is sold through its website.

The brief removal of Bibles caused some outrage from religious groups.

The Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, which advocates for the free practice of religion in the military, called it an act of censorship and criticized the Navy for bending to the atheist complaint.

“It’s tiresome to see senior military leaders needlessly cave into activist groups offended by anything Christian,” Ron Crews, a retired colonel and chaplain who is the executive director of the group, said in a released statement.

So, the atheists want the Navy to pay for their rags to be placed into hotels, but the Gideons want to provide Bibles, free of charge, to any hotel they can put them in, whether they are associated with the military or not.

I wonder if Mr. Gordan and the Freedom from Religion Foundation are even aware of our country’s Christian beginnings. I wonder if they are aware of the Mayflower Compact, the Declaration of Independence, the State constitutions of the original thirteen colonies or the historical claims of some of America’s leaders, including these by our founding fathers:

“While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.” George Washington, The Writings of Washington, pp. 342-343

They were to busy playing duck and cover drills as this horrific death along with all others serve as nothing more than a reminder oh Obama’s failed policies in the Middle East, particularly now those in Iraq and Afghanistan.

When two-star Major General Harold Greene, the highest-ranking officer killed in combat since Vietnam, was laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery on Thursday, neither the President nor the Vice President were present.

The nominal Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama was playing a round at the Vineyard Golf Club with Valerie Jarrett’s cousin, Cyrus Walker, the World Bank president and former President of Darmouth College Jim Kim, and former lobbyist and ambassador Ron Kirk.

The clownish Joe Biden was in the middle of the third day of a week-long vacation in the Hamptons, which followed a week in Wyoming, which was preceded by a week at Rehoboth Beach in Delaware.

NYTimes Reporter: Obama ‘Greatest Enemy To Press Freedom In A Generation’ [VIDEO]

How typical of the New York Times to only see the world from their own limited perspective.

 

Obama isn’t just a threat to the press, he’s a threat to The U.S. Constitution, our mainstream way of life, the entire United States at every level, politically, economically, and with our military and his treatment of our troops.

In a sentence, “Obama is just another Muslim who will be better off when he is gone.”

President Barack Obama is no friend of press freedom, says a New York Times reporter who may be sent to jail for refusing to reveal a source.

13-1212-imperial-obama-517w-271h

“A lot of people still think this is some kind of game or signal or spin,” reporter James Risen told his own paper in a profile about his plight published Saturday. “They don’t want to believe that Obama wants to crack down on the press and whistle-blowers. But he does. He’s the greatest enemy to press freedom in a generation.” (RELATED: NYT reporter: Obama administration ‘the greatest enemy of press freedom’ in a generation)

Risen’s troubles stem from the 2006 publication of his book “State of War,” which included classified information about a failed CIA plot against Iran’s nuclear program. In 2008, George W. Bush’s Department of Justice subpoenaed Risen to reveal the source of the classified information. Citing his role as a journalist, Risen refused to comply, fighting the subpoena until it expired in 2009.
