The Corruption Of Law Leads To Tyranny
by Paul Craig Roberts

KINGSTON, NY, 29 April 2011 — Remember when Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld told the world that Guantanamo Prison held “the most dangerous, best-trained, vicious killers on the face of the earth” and gave assurances that nevertheless “we’re treating these people as if the Geneva Convention applied?” www.defense.gov/news The files on each prisoner, leaked by a US government whistleblower to Wikileaks and now available to the world, prove beyond all doubt that Rumsfeld was lying as was President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney when they repeated the lies.

The successor Obama administration in Washington, after the release of 607 of the “most dangerous men on earth” for lack of any evidence that represented any kind of danger at all, many after being tortured and abused, now claims that the remaining 172 are too dangerous to release, despite the lack of any evidence that would allow the government to try them.

Since the US government admits it was wrong in 78 percent of the cases, how do we know that the government is right about the remaining 22 percent?

Astonishingly, the government is afraid to attempt to try more than 40 of the remaining prisoners even in its special kangaroo courts – Military Tribunals – set up specially for the purpose of trying people with secret, non-declared evidence. That leaves 132 to be held in prison for their lifetimes without any evidence ever being presented against them--not even show trial “evidence.” Even Joseph Stalin’s victims got a show trial.

The Guantanamo prisoners were a collection of the most unlikely “dangerous people in the world.” How dangerous is an 89-year old villager suffering from senile dementia or a 14-year old boy who had been kidnapped?

Many prisoners were not even suspected of being al Qaeda, Taliban, or anything other than a possible source of information. One British citizen was held for years simply because he had been captured and imprisoned by the Taliban, and the Americans thought he could tell them about Taliban interrogation techniques. A cameraman for the Arab News Service, Al Jazeera, was held in order to question him about the news service, which is based in Qatar, an American puppet state. Most of the prisoners were simply people kidnapped by warlords and sold to the gullible Americans for the bounty that the US paid for “terrorists.”

Obviously, President Bush’s assurance (September 6, 2006) that “we have in place a rigorous process to ensure those held at Guantanamo Bay belong at Guantanamo” was just another lie.

It turns out that the only evidence that the Americans had of “dangerous men” were the inventions conjured up by men under torture or by men producing “evidence” against others in exchange for their own release. Having violated all known laws in order to hold the prisoners, the US government was desperate to produce evidence that the prisoners were dangerous men.

Yemeni prisoner, Yasim Basardah, invented information against 135 of the Guantanamo prisoners. Abu Zubaydah, described by the Americans as the third-ranking leader of al Qaeda, turned out to be a lowly car pool driver, but nevertheless produced “evidence” against 100 other prisoners after being water-boarded 83 times. Even the prison camp commander realized that the “evidence” was bogus.

The sordid truth of Guantanamo is that the US government needed examples to justify the massive “terrorist threat” that it declared with alert set on orange, one step below red, as a permanent fixture of American life. Like Stalin, earlier, who needed examples of “enemies of the people,” the US government conducted “street sweeps,” which was the way the Soviet secret police produced “enemies of the people.” The Soviet police would just go out in the streets and arrest everyone there. The Americans took people out of Taliban prisons, university libraries, and paid bounties for kidnapped victims. These people became “the most dangerous men on earth.”

The lawlessness and brutality associated with Guantanamo were pointless. The US government destroyed the reputation of the United States and the rule of law for nothing. It is a terrible experience to have years of one’s life stolen and to be tortured into false confession, but the price that Americans will pay will be much higher.

The Obama regime has endorsed the Bush regime’s violation of the US Constitution. It has made indefinite detention in concentration camps an enduring American institution. Habeas corpus, due process, and the right to an attorney are now dead-letter legal rights for anyone accused with or without evidence of being a “suspect.”

The rule of law has been murdered. The routine abuse of citizens by unaccountable powers – such as air travelers forced by Transportation Safety Administration to submit to radioactive scans or endure intrusive gropes – is seeping into all aspects of American life. The latest manifestation is the practice of state police downloading all information from motorists’ cell phones when they are stopped for traffic violations. www.businessinsider.com

A government based on fear of terrorism, whose executive claims power not limited by the Constitution or Congress for the duration of an open-ended “war on terror,” will create a state of tyranny.

Only a highly aroused people who refuse to submit can escape the coming tyranny.

Everything gets more clear by the moment:

Gov Regulation is the enforcement branch for the true reason: funding government isn't the reason for taxation.

Again: (as the Bam admin sees it, and for that matter the cronies on the other side of the seating arrangement)...

Taxation in that mind-set isn't about funding the government, but rather, using taxation dollars to redistribute, and BUY VOTES.

Case study: "Gov's ging me $$$, let me vote to make sure I still get some."

Back to the top of this post: Regulation has become the enforcement branch. Gestapo Vote Buyers.

Here is an interesting GOLD story
right in the "16-1" back yard. I
believe I may have related same
before. My wife's grgpa came from
France around the "horn" to Calif.
in around 1848-49, came to the
goldfields and at one time mined
Kanaka Creek somewhere below the
Sixteen. On an occasion of prying up a big rock discovered
a relatively large nugget which,
according to our narrative,
weighed approx. 20oz troy. Well
the gentleman expressed the
nugget's description in french:
BIGRE!! Of course, he wrapped it
in his handkerchief and hid it.
The gentleman eventually mined
enough to leave and go to San
Francisco and get into the meat
business. He later sold out and
went to Sonoma Co. and went into
the Winery business.

Due to my departure in mid-March for Mexico, I missed the release of Martin Armstrong from Federal prision being put there on trumped up charges.

Mr. Armstrong's latest report entitled, "The Other Side Of Inflation" is linked below. Mr. Armstrong, as usual, tells us about history that almost all of our schools saw fit not to teach us.

Squeeze The People

It's wondered, how can the blood sucking Water Board members sleep at night? The folks that commit moral crimes against their own will in the end be victims of their own consciences. The only survivors from the Water Board tyrants will be the sociopaths. People who have dealt with sociopaths know: what goes around, comes around.

The following comments were made by Bob Chapman in yesterday's International Forecaster:

“If you want to understand better why so many states from New York to Wisconsin to California are teetering on the brink of bankruptcy, consider this depressing statistic: Today in America there are nearly twice as many people working for the government (22.5 million) than in all of manufacturing (11.5 million). This is an almost exact reversal of the situation in 1960, when there were 15 million workers in manufacturing and 8.7 million collecting a paycheck from the government. It gets worse. More Americans work for the government than work in construction, farming, fishing, forestry, manufacturing, mining and utilities combined. We have moved decisively from a nation of makers to a nation of takers.

Answer to entry below: yes, it is related. On April 30, 2011, the mine property will be sold for back taxes; however, it is unlikely a sale will happen; however again, the company is looking for an investor to provide the money to pay the taxes. In return the investor will receive a good interest rate as well as exceptional security for the loan. The sooner this delinquent debt is paid, the sooner another corporate concern will end. Please contact me if you have money resting in a bank or other “investment” earning pennies. We could use your trust in the mine, the company and the crew.

I was on the Sierra County website, and noticed that the property at 505 Miners St
Alleghany was going up for bid for back taxes. That is very close to the Sixteen to One Mine. Is it related?

Remember the Liberty Dollar? Well, its founder, apparently, is headed for some jail time on trumped up charges. How could a supporter of hard currency supported by our Constitution be declared a domestic terrorist by Fed prosecutors? It's easy, it's now their game and we're no longer part of it.

No CDAA seen yet...because it wasn't a Home Depot (my apologies) but rather a Staples.

Seems that the Water Bored should be there, though.

Rick, I'm just glad you didn't ask, "How many CDAA attorneys does it take to screw in a light bulb?"

Tragically, I just learned on the KFBK news that a man working for a lighting company at a Home Depot, at 6:30 this morning, was crushed to death in the mobile elevator bucket he was operating alone (before his partner arrived) when he got sandwiched between the bucket and the arch of the building where the light was located.

With true respect for his family, I am still compelled to ask:

When will the CDAA show up and bring manslaughter charges against the Home Depot manager and the owner of the light company??

Tony Baker, Bluejay:

Only thinkers are even aware of the progressive creep. Since we are thinkers, and of sound practical mind, remember this:

It is all predictable, and has been: search the "coffee-cup" campaigne in the 50's to hear Ronaldus Magnus speak precisely to this issue, 50 years ago. It is creeping over the edge, and still, we will throw it back overboard.

I think the sleeping giant isn't sleeping inside the belly. I've not given up. In fact, I'm fired up.

The following is from Tony Baker a friend of the Company:

With the turmoil in the middle east and rising oil and gas prices, it's time to reflect.

Does anybody remember the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY ..... during the Carter Administration?

Anybody? Anything? No?

Didn't think so!

Bottom line: We've spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency...the reason for which not one person who reads this can remember!

Ready?? It was very simple . . . and, at the time, everybody thought it very appropriate.

The Department of Energy was instituted on 8/04/1977 TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.


A little over 34 years ago, 30% of our oil consumption was imported. Today 70% of our oil consumption is foreign imports. The good old Federal bureaucracy!!

The Feds sue to overturn Arizona immigration law. Justice Department lawyers argued that the state statute should be declared invalid because it has improperly preempted federal law.

The Federal Government set up laws and regulations for mining, too. They were in place (with a few updates) for over one hundred years. They have set acceptable limits for arsenic in mine discharge waters. There are safety rules to protect the miners. However, the State of California has been listening to terrorists and fanatics who do not have our wellbeing at heart. They have decided that the federal regulations are not to their liking. With the federal regulations, at least you knew where you stood and could plan your operation accordingly.

Now, the State is in dire financial difficulty. Maybe, we should go back to a time when we were prosperous. Look at why we were prosperous and do what we can to be that way again. That doesn't mean that we can't learn from our mistakes and do it even better the second time.

The link below to the article "Tipping Point" by Martin Armstrong is dedicated to Rick so that he may continue his education as he continues his efforts to wake up the people.

It's appropriate that Mr. Armstrong's computer that held the data for the history of the world which could easily predict long term cycle trends was named Socrates.

Politicians are incapable of caring for their people once they get a taste of the power. What they fear the most comes from orators of the truth. Socrates was a tragic casualty of those fears while Martin Armstrong pays the price, as well, for challenging these so-called public servants.

Bluejay, this is precisely why fiscally minded state-houses were voted into office in November. It will be GRAND to watch.

There seems to be a disconnect of understanding between those who see unions as universal, vs. those of us who know the difference between public and private sector unions. (Debating validity of private sector unions is another story for another day.)

The vast difference is stark. Somehow my discussion friends can't see this. Hmmmm...

I just had a heated (albeit, good) exchange with a friend who cannot, for the life of him, see the difference. It always comes back to the tiresome disconnect of "Oh, okay, so the little guy gets screwed while the rich get richer..."

Such a vast distinction between public vs. private sector existence, and yet, it remains elusive to them.

Years ago, the dreaded word 'communist' used to be a rally cry for those of us defending the US Constitution. Now it is the banner cry for people who can't distinguish the difference between freedom, individuality and self-determination vs. public sector community organizing.

Great...and now we have a Community Organizer for a president.

Is anyone watching the trend????

A consulting firm founded by economist Nouriel Roubini said there could be close to $100 billions of municipal-bond defaults over the next five years as state and local government-debt problems damp the U.S. economic recovery.
That figure would by most estimates represent a significant increase over defaults in recent history, but it doesn't appear to be as dire as a prediction last year by analyst Meredith Whitney

Silver closed $33.38 UP $1.27

Silver is in the process of adjusting to its unknown true value as the price suppression scheme has ended with monstrous losses for those who sold silver short and continue to remain short.

There have been reports that the current total short position in silver is equivalent to one year's world mine production. This could be right around 800 million ounces or so.

Top 20 Silver Producing Countries in 2009
(millions of ounces)

1. Peru 123.9
2. Mexico 104.7
3. China 89.1
4. Australia 52.6
5. Bolivia 42.6
6. Russia 42.2
7. Chile 41.8
8. United States 39.8
9. Poland 39.2

The California Highway Patrol has invaded our town today. Motorcycle patrolmen have descended upon townsfolk like hungry locust picking our pockets left and right.

"Squeeze the People" is in full-force here. The financial affairs of the State are suspected to be in much worse shape than the politicians are willing to admit.

Anyone holding State Municipal bonds needs to have their heads examined.

Our State has to be a complete disaster based upon what Marc Faber says. One of Faber's comments that struck me was that the worst world-wide investment managers are the ones running the State pension funds. Faber says, they buy at the peak and have sold at the bottom.

In addition, the civil servants are sucking us dry with their excessive salaries and benfits which they refuse to scale down. Their answer has ALWAYS been: either take our money in taxes or take our property.

It's called, "Squeeze The People." Today, the governor from Wisconsin is trying to break-up the civil servant's unions for their past salary and benefit pressures that are sinking his State.

Mr Faber says, "we are all doomed."

Check out Mr. Faber's comments:
