The myth of the rule of Law in an American Police State – and America preaches to the world on human rights!!!

 The country that proclaims to be the shining example of freedom of every kind cannot escape the harsh realities that questions how far Americans are living in a free state. Tragically, most Americans do not know or realize how successive Governments have been fooling them ” now America is a country in debt, majority of its citizen’s impoverished suffering numerous health issues, its war veterans depressed and under medication and American politicians believing it can still dictate to the world because the Companies that rule them say so. Moreover, the example of the Indian diplomatic passport holder being subject to a series of American Laws, legality of which denies even India to question the humiliation should seriously make India and the Rest of the World to wonder how safe it is for them to live or even travel to the US. http://www.policestateusa.com/

By the time people in America begin to realize that America is now a police state it would have been too late. Former top NSA official William Binney, declared that “We (the US) are now in a police state.”  The mass spying conducted by the Obama regime, Binney says “is a totalitarian process.”

Americans have no freedoms: A country that demands freedoms and rights has been exposed for systematically collecting information on all telephone calls placed in the US. Americans find themselves dumbfounded that this invasion of privacy has been going on since 1970s. Americans do not have any privacy left ” they are being monitored ” telephone calls, conversations, telegrams and the US is even intercepting laptop computers ordered online.

Americans under a militarized police: there are almost 13,000 agencies in the 50 states of the US and 4 territories given training in local law enforcement. These SWAT teams are used to carry out routine law enforcement even delivering a warrant.

Americans are being shot at: Shooting unarmed civilians is illegal ” but not in the US. Rising reports of police shooting at unarmed citizens ” one such example was a 19 year old from Seattle who was shot in the leg by police after she refused to show her hands!

Americans are losing their private property: When the US Government tells American citizens what they can and cannot do inside their own homes it means you are no longer the owner of your property. When US law enforcement can break down doors, kill the dog, damage furnishings, terrorise the entire family it translates to mean that the US Government is showing that the property belongs to the State.

Americans have no body integrity (strip searches): Violating the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution which was meant to protect against citizens being subject to ‘unreasonable searches and seizures’ by government agents, today both property and bodies are permitted to be searched without warrant. The moral intent to protect human dignity should not deny humans their dignity!

American drones ” killing civilians with impunity: An estimated 30,000 is said to occupy US airspace by 2020 ($30billion annual industry). These unmanned aerial vehicles come in all shapes and sizes, even nano-sized drones as small as a grain of sand ” they conduct surveillance as well as possess capability to detonate. California police are using Qube drones which can hover for 40 minutes at heights of 400ft to conduct surveillance on targets as far as 1km away. Michael Downing, Los Angeles Police Dept deputy chief for counter terrorism says that drones will be flown over large-scale media events (Oscars) as well as survey political protests too.

American children victims too: Even 9 year olds are suspended for pointing a toy at a classmate and saying ‘bang bang’ in a country once famous for playing ‘cowboys and Indians’. Two 6 year olds had been suspended in Maryland for using imaginary ‘finger’ guns in the schoolyard playing cops and robbers ” replicating what they view as cartoons. Instead of removing such cartoons the children are being reprimanded! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/01/jordan-bennett-suspended-_n_4022494.html

A whole new list of laws and regulations are today taking shape within a wicked framework of partnership made up of Big Wigs in Government and Big Corporations. The ‘police state’ forming itself will translate to mean a corporate take over of America where political bureaucracy will be foolishly handed over to Companies and their Boards. The current politicians acting already as pawns are likely to be given status of CEOs in the Corporate State that is taking shape. With the ordinary people being denied their basic and fundamental human rights and with little access to their representatives to even convey their thoughts and feelings we can only ask what type of ‘Democratic Governance’ prevails in the mighty United States of America?

America has been passing judgment for years preparing dossiers on what countries do not do or should do and accusing countries of human rights violations, denial of media freedoms and rights while silently drafting laws and regulations that would curtail their own people.

§  National Defense Authorization Act ” this allows the indefinite detention of citizens. NDAA allows American citizens to be arrested, imprisoned, and tortured by the U.S. military–without due process of any kind! (violation of 4th amendment)

§  Even before the 9/11, NSA had planned to through the Presidential Executive Order to seize total control over the internet and all other communication media.

§  In August 2013 the Obama Administration sought Supreme Court approval to seize without warrant all cell phone data of a person arrested merely on suspicion of a crime – Over the past several years police throughout America have begun confiscating cell phones used by bystanders, even news reporters have had their cell phones confiscated even those standing on public property. U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that police have the right to strip and “body search” (including body cavities) anyone arrested for any reason””even a traffic violation””even if they have not yet been officially charged with anything. Prosecutorial misconduct has left scores of men spending years in prison for crimes they did not commit

§  US administration allows for the President of the US to order the assassination of any citizen whom he considers allied to terrorists (US accuses nations of extrajudicial killings).

§  US President also has the right to indefinitely detain US citizens accused of terrorism – Attorney General Ashcroft explicitly stated that terrorists do not deserve constitutional protections, all they deserve are “courts” of conviction, not justice.

§  US President can order warrantless searches/surveillance including a new capability to force companies and organizations to turn over information on citizens’ finances, communications and associations under the Patriot Act of 2001 and 2011 (welcome to the Land of Dreams)

§  America will soon deny right of workers to form unions –  the American Legislative Exchange Council, is coordinating the loss of union rights for public employees.

§  Extending the 2001/2011 Patriot Act further is the right to searches of everything from business documents to library records ” all that the US Government needs to use is ‘National Security Letter’ for companies to turn over information about their staff.

§  Secret evidence have been ample enough to detain individuals. Cases can be dismissed against the US by the simple act of filing declarations that it is against the national security

§  US administration denies CIA employees to be investigated or prosecuted ” this breaks international laws as well as the Nuremberg Principles of international law. What hypocrisy when US drafts Resolutions against countries while using its iron fists to deny even an allegation being charged against the US.

§  Secret Foreign Intelligence Surveiilance Court ” has secret warrants/secret searches of anyone

§  Immunity of Companies from Judicial Review ” Companies involved in warrantless searches have been given immunity blocking the right of civilians to challenge these searches by private parties as a violation of people’s right to privacy.

§  US is using GPS devices to monitor every move of targeted citizens without securing any court order or review  – everywhere Americans looks there is a camera looking at every move they make in the land of the free ” America!

§  The Extraordinary Renditions make it possible for the US to move both US and Non-US citizens to another country and even torture these ‘suspects’.

§  US Supreme Court handed three big victories to big corporations seeking immunity from the law, and equally substantial defeats to American workers and consumers – the Court made it easier for many bosses to get away with sexual or racial harassment, and it eased the path for many companies that retaliate against workers who claim they are victims of discrimination. The Court held a generic drug manufacturer whose product allegedly caused burns over half a patient’s body immune from a lawsuit that would have compensated this victim for her injuries.

§  If any American politician comes to Sri Lanka” please take a copy of this and hand over to him for comments on how a US citizen was treated just for telling Dick Cheney that he thought America’s actions in Iraq was ‘reprehensible’ – http://www.progressive.org/mag_mc100406 – at the going rate it is mostly likely that people would be shot first and questions asked later in the US.

A protester hold a sign in reaction to a police shooting outside of the Sonoma County Sheriff’s department on Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013, in Santa Rosa, Calif. Hundreds of people have gathered in Santa Rosa to protest the fatal shooting of a 13-year-old boy by a California sheriff’s deputy. Andy Lopez was shot by a Sonoma County deputy last week after authorities say the deputy mistook a pellet gun Lopez was carrying for an assault rifle. Credit: AP

§  Under Obama care everyone is forced to pay for things they will never use causing healthcare premiums to skyrocket. People who had health care plans are being dropped because the health plan they had did not include paying for birth control, even though you’re a women who is 50 years old

§  Under Obama care – The immigration bill would make 11 million illegal aliens eligible for Obama care.

§  Under the Dodd Frank bill all currency placed into a American bank account is no longer secure after January 1, 2014 (even Federal credit unions). Frank Dodd bill declares bank depositors as unsecured creditor’s of the bank. Banks can own your deposits by law. If a bank has any financial problems they can now take your money as written under Frank Dodd.

§  The taste of freedom in the US is such that a person is likely to get arrested or hassled even branded a ‘terrorist’ even if he so much as complains against the taste of tap water, speaking out against government policies, protesting anything (look what happened to the Occupy movements), questioning war, criticising the government’s targeting of innocent civilians with drones, questioning government on pollution, asking questions about Wall Street shenanigans, holding gold, creating alternative currencies, stocking up more than 7 days of food, taking pictures or videos, opposing GMOs, opposing surveillance….

§  Even paying cash is a crime ” so too is having bumper stickers that says ‘Know your rights or lose them’!!!

Representatives/Senators of the US Congress were given only a few minutes to brisk through 2-3pages of the US Patriot Act before it was passed. They had been given no time to read through the Act ” they all signed because they did not wish to be termed ‘unpatriotic’. It was later that Lieberman, Daschle and Gephardt declared they had given Bush ‘near dictatorial powers’.

In short we are talking about a country where its Government has passed laws to avoid punishment for murder, gives itself the right to siege any American city, use FBI for terrorist attacks, spy on US citizens, intimidate US citizens, brand anyone a terrorist, ignore the Bill of Rights entirely, illegally imprison American citizens, loot tax payers money ” under the heading of ‘civil disturbance planning’ the US military is training troops and police to suppress democratic opposition in America (Dept of Defense Civil Disturbance Plan ” code named Operation Garden Plot) .

The tragedy is that most Americans do not even realize what is going on or how badly they are being deceived by the Federal Government.

They are being sold the story that the American Government is doing its best to keep them safe ” that safety is however slowly denying individual rights and taking away their freedoms without the Americans even realizing what is happening.  What has America gained in return for $6 trillion and one million injured soldiers, many very severely?

Moreover, the few who are aware don’t even know what to do about it. The situation is made worse because the media which is corporate media owned by corporates who in real terms runs the Federal government makes sure that the people know ONLY what they need to know and Americans in general are absolutely clueless about the sins that the American Government commits and has been committing over the years. We need to seriously wonder whether the diagnosis of Americans and subjecting them to anti-depressants and other medications is actually a sinister move to keep Americans like zombies and we need to also wonder if the same is being done to US servicemen as well as the pharmaceutical industry is one of the world’s key players and profits from the invasion and occupation of nations just as the food and construction industry.

Thomas Paine said ‘It is the duty of the Patriot to protect his country from his Government’ ” It is time America and the rest of the world begin to wake up.

Thomas Jefferson said “Evil triumphs when good men do nothing’ ” It is now time for the GOOD MEN of the world to do something.

    Evil triumphs when good men do nothing.

    This applies to SL as well.

    If we continue this ROTTEN SYSTEM to destroy SL we are at fault.

    Only PROVEN patriots in armed forces can save SL AGAIN.

  2. stanley perera Says:

    MR is giving into the demands of the Racist Tamils. MR says that Army numbers in the North now reduced to 12000. If that is the case southerners demand it should be reduced to zero.

  3. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    Good idea Stanley !! Then, the Tamil Rascists will start Terrorism. Then, The Army will get there and finish off the balance Tamil Terrorists in Civils.

  4. Nanda Says:

    No. we must ask the government to get rid of Panagoda Camp, Diyatalawa Camp etc. Why do we need these ?
    We too DON”T WANT army. Army is a inference to our economic growth.
    We LOVE our pragmatic politicians who run the country with discipline and wisdom.
    We LOVE our policemen who take care of us.
    Get rid of the whole army.

  5. Lorenzo Says:

    12,000 army in the north of 800,000 Tamils is GROSSLY INADEQUATE.

    As Stanley says army should be removed from other parts too if it is removed from the north!! Why different treatments.

    IF the foolish govt. had SETTLED army families in Jaffna we would NOT have this problem.

    The old money system of the Rothschilds with its links to wealth from the times of David is the root of an economic monopoly that was tied to killing Jesus, killing President Lincoln, and killing President Kennedy. With all the killings involved in the privately owned Federal Reserve’s games to keep power over the US, it becomes more akin to the percentages for protection games of the Mafia. In the US, where this racketeering power is run by the oligarchy of the rich, even US presidents get killed and the matter white washed.
    Money is the root of all evil and the wealth monopoly will do anything to keep their power
    George W. Bush, on his own signature, with no approval from Congress and no input from the American people, seized unlimited power for the Presidency; he dismantled the constitutional protections of the American people; he ignored the courts; he created the merger of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, including the merger of the U.S. and Canadian militaries; and he refused to enforce U.S. immigration laws, thus facilitating a borderless North America. And all of this had been done at the behest of David Rockefeller and his cabal of moneychangers at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
    George Bush Jr who has done more to appease the globalist plans of the moneychangers than any US President since Woodrow Wilson.
    George Bush Jr has used the rubric of “the war on terrorism” to dismantle not only the personal liberties of the American people (most notably with his Gestapo-like Patriot Act), but also the constitutional principles of national sovereignty and independence. For example, back in 2006, George Bush Jr eviscerated one of America’s most sacred doctrines protecting liberty and independence: the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, which disallowed US military troops from being used against Americans.

    Now the bugger is louder , after US woman’s money. QUoting from Lankapage

    “Jan 19, Colombo: President of the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL), Upul Jayasuriya says that an independent, impartial, honest and competent judiciary is integral to upholding the Rule of Law.
    Speaking at an event in Colombo, Jayasuriya has said that it was the duty of the judiciary, the legal fraternity and citizens to ensure that the Rule of Law was sustained.
    Observing that an independent and competent judiciary will help build public confidence in the legal system, Jayasuriya explained that the Latimer House principles, adopted in Edinburgh in 2005 by the Commonwealth should be upheld in Sri Lanka, in order to achieve these aims.
    Noting that Latimer House principles call for the judicial appointments to be made on the basis of clearly defined criteria and by a publicly declared process, the lawyer said there should be transparency in appointments and promotions of judges and the powers of appointment ought not to be vested solely in the appointing authority. ”

    This bugger is a politically promoted UNP Colombian who failed ALL 4 A-Level subjects. This FOOL does not know the so called greatest democracy in the world USA’s big judges are appointed by the US President.

    Why is MOhan Pieris silent ? He should speak up and reveal the truth, including how this bugger became youngest chairman of a government corporation by political influence alone. Has he got any right to talk about justice ?

    “Competition is a sin”
    John D. Rockefeller

    Several people assume that the Wall Street is equal to capitalism. Real capitalism requires a looser. The establishing your own business needs resources that others already own. It’s a race to own.
    But Wall Street thinks differently. For Wall street competition is a sin.

  9. Nanda Says:

    In a democracy, it is the majority who decides what the country wants.

    The president has the right to STOP all Propaganda by EVIL FORCES including froriegn embassies. He as the person appointed to RUN the country, cannot allow the Enemy to spread propaganda.
    He cannot just say as an ANDARE ” or let them say whatever they want, they are free to say anything”, because in that case he is not honouring the basic rule of a democracy.

    Sri Lanka under MR has become a DEMO_CRAZY, a country run by LTTE,USA, INDIA and UK.

  10. Nalliah Thayabharan Says:

    During the US debt crisis, Obama’s only consideration has been how best to position himself for the 2012 Presidential election.
    U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1962 proposed a series of lethal ways to deceive the American people in order to engineer a war against Cuba.
    The history of US interventions is littered with false stories, from the “Remember the Maine” campaign to the stories of Vietnamese attacks
    Serbia’s Milosevic was brought before a UN tribunal to face justice but NATO leaders who made illegal war on Serbia, were not.
    World leaders say nothing about Bush’s decision to authorize torture nor chastise Obama for continuing to outsource torture offshore
    After the WWII it was easy to convict leading Nazis of waging illegal war. But you can’t indict George W. Bush for the same crime.

  11. Lorenzo Says:

    MIGHT IS RIGHT!

    This is an UNBELIEVABLY FANTASTIC tactic by Putin (who is GENERALLY another WEAK leader given the power he has).

    DESPITE sanctions by the dumb UN, Russia has signed an agreement with Iran. Iran to EXPORT 500,000 barrels of oil to Russia (already world’s second largest oil producer) in return for Russian goods to Iran. (Obviously the stupid Iranians don’t get the market prices for their sale.)

    This makes Russia the largest oil producer in the world (including Iranain oil). Stupid barbaric Saudi losers have been BUSTED in style. Revenge for bomb attacks!

    Generally it is ILLEGAL to trade with a country under sanctions. BUT what can ANYONE do when Russia violates it? NOTHING! Ruzputin the man!

  12. Nalliah Thayabharan Says:

    The United States not to behave as a self-proclaimed human rights judge and it should face up to its own human rights issues.

    The US has published annual reports on human rights practices in other countries since 1977 and has been accustomed to, and is intent on, behaving as a “judge”. However, Washington has received a cold shoulder from countries worldwide, because of its own human rights violations and its double standard on human rights issues.

    The US has never hesitated to point the finger at other countries’ human rights and to advocate that “human rights are superior to sovereignty” when it serves its own interests. But the US has refused to sign some of the major United Nations human rights covenants. On March 18, the UN Human Rights Council made 228 proposals for the US to improve its own human rights conditions, including urging Washington to ratify some key international human rights treaties, improving the rights for minorities and reducing racial discrimination. However, the US refused most of these proposals on the grounds that its human rights allow no intervention from the outside.

    The double standard embraced by the US testify to the fact that human rights are being used by some countries as a tool to interfere with others’ internal affairs and the idea that “human rights stand higher than sovereignty” has become a political slogan for some to justify their hegemonic activities.

  13. Nalliah Thayabharan Says:

    On New Year’s Eve, with almost no mainstream media attention given to it, President Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, or NDAA, into law codifying indefinite military detention without charge or trial into law for the first time in American history. The NDAA’s dangerous detention provisions would authorize the president — and all future presidents — to order the military to pick up and indefinitely imprison people captured anywhere in the world, far from any battlefield.

    Obama’s administration, and all future administrations can now use the military to detain individuals, including political dissidents – even American citizens on US soil – without trial or formal charges. Without court involvement or a jury deciding you are actually guilty. And “detain” is really a euphemism for IMPRISON, of course, in a semi-secret military black site, without access to an attorney, potentially for life.

    Obama also signed into law something which attacks American’s First Amendment rights to peaceful assembly and freedom of speech. The Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011, or Trespass Bill, signed into law by Barack Obama on March 9, 2012, “potentially makes peaceable protest anywhere in the US a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.” More specifically, peaceful protest within proximity to those protected by the Secret Service, including presidential candidates and the President, may be a federal felony now.

    Even worse a former high-ranking NSA official, who spent more than three decades within the spy agency, just recently came out in a nationally televised interview and asserted that more than 20 trillion of American citizens’ communications have been intercepted – mostly without a warrant or judicial review of any kind.

    Furthermore, the NSA is now building a $2 billion data centre in Utah to crunch all of this data. In other words, $2 billion of American taxpayer dollars are going toward spying on American citizens within the US without warrant or court approval. This is not only an outlandish waste of money, it’s illegal.

    Also reporters at ridiculously mainstream publication USA Today are now claiming that Pentagon-sponsored “propaganda contractors” have initiated a widespread character assassination and reputation destroying campaign against them.

    Sri Lanka is way better than USA
