This is a blog for "realist-idealists", hopeful romantics, "People ONLY for, and for ONLY, True Love, Peace, Freedom, Liberalism, 'Republic-anism', Conservatism, Liberation, and Justice"; as well as "...Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of (True) Happiness (and Equality)..."; and True "...Liberty and Justice FOR ALL..." people in the U.S. and all over this "corporate-fascist" blighted world!

This time, in this article, I am going to go into answering the foregoing question and addressing the premise of this latest article first, before going into the latest of what my government regulated, financed and subsidized apartment complex, and its owner(s), agent(s) and management, are continuing to do to violate the law and the rights of myself and the other tenants in same. Then, in the second part of this article, I will provide a copy of the latest letter I wrote to said “civil-law-criminals” showing more of the laws that those parties are in violation of. So, without further ado, I hereby begin part one of this article, as follows:
Let me start off by making it very clear that the willfully ignorant and blind U.S. and world citizens to what is really happening in the U.S. and the world are not themselves completely responsible for that blindness and ignorance. They have been chemically and otherwise “dumbed-down”, and indoctrinated and conditioned, to be that way. The air, food and water, as well as the “educational” system, are filled with mind-numbing poison, both literal chemical poisons and the poison of evil lies, propaganda, false history and lies by omission.
Due to the fact that it is so timely and appropriate, and because it is where the True Power is to be found to overcome mass-insanity, I am going to again quote the following verses from God’s Word(s), the Bible, that I quoted at the end of Part One of this present series of articles:
“It is written, thus says the Lord [God in Jesus the Christ, the Word(s) of God, and the Maker / Creator of all things except evil]…”:
“…(N)ow it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now is (the Hope of) our salvation closer than when we first came to believe (God’s Truth). The (darkness of evil) is almost over, (and) the daylight (of total delivery from evil) is (very close) at hand; therefore, let us (have nothing to do with the ways of evil), and let us put on the armor of (the) Light (of God’s Truth)…”!
“…Awake to (True) (R)ighteousness, and do not commit evil; for (many) do not have the (correct understanding) of God (and His Truth), and I speak this to (their) shame…”!
Control freaks have been with us almost since the dawn of humankind. The earth, and the dominant species on it, people, have been actuated by evil to lord it over and enslave masses of people for thousands of years. We have been led to believe that this practice is acceptable, that it is supposedly natural, or at least unavoidable; and, as long as evil continues to actuate humankind, it is unavoidable, but it is NOT natural or something we, as human beings, should in any way accept.
That is why the far-seeing, intelligent and independent free thinkers among us for millennia, have sought the ideal form of limited governance, that which doesn’t allow the control freaks to dominate us, while at the same time preserving our liberties and freedoms. And, as a result of that quest for the predominance of freedom and liberty, the greatest free constitutional republic in the entire history of the world, the United States of America was created.
From the outset the U.S. has had its faults. It still fell for the enticing temptations to dominate others because of backwards thinking about who is and who is not supposedly superior, and who are supposedly inferior and “savage”, all the while forgetting to remember that in the process of dominating, subjugating and controlling others the worst savagery comes to prevail; and, much to the United State’s great shame, in huge contradiction(s) of its ideals, savagery much worse than the “savagery” that was inflicted on the founders of this country was carried out against its first inhabitants and others as a result.

The U.S. government is not a benevolent caretaker
But is rather despotic, malevolent and capricious
While going about fascistically deceiving, colonizing
And serving military-industrial “America” over humans
That don’t profit from insanity, bombing and death
Unlike the many self-serving Machiavellian killers
Who run the corporate murder-for-money machinery
Which gains the whole world but has none of soul’s
Love and mercy for humanity needing to predominate
Over their greed and hate that are compassionless
These “Big Brothers” want to control our thoughts
Leaving us without any True Liberties or Freedoms
And silence our “check and balance” on their aims
Of totally enslaving, dominating and mastering us
While making us absolutely subservient automatons
That do nothing but what we’re told by sociopaths
Seeking to be our completely evil gods and rulers
Who care for nothing and no one except their profits
In the process of sacrificing the freedom of thoughts
For True Liberty and Mastery ONLY over ourselves

So, where are we now? Where are we as a people in the United States at the present time? What is my current personal situation? Well, I’ve been debating with myself what to write in order to contribute a third part to this treatise of articles, and to write an update on my individual circumstances, but I’ve had a difficult time deciding what, if anything, to put on record.
On the one hand, with all of the great deal of false hope being (dis/mis)placed in Barack “Continue-the-Police-State-Status-Quo” Obama—which police state status quo he will undoubtedly continue, with some few appearances of restoring the Constitution and the rule of law in the U.S., overturning very little, or not enough, of the worst damage that the Bush regime has perpetrated against the rule of law and the Constitution—if one questions as I’m doing right now the unsubstantiated and overblown optimism occurring presently, they are at worst labeled, berated, castigated, almost violently opposed, and/or dismissed as overly pessimistic, accused with “So you want him (Barack Obama) to fail” (as my eighty-eight year old mother who voted for Obama’s false “change” stated to me in early November 2008, not long after the “election”), and/or falsely denigrated as being an “enemy” of “hope”, “optimism” and therefore even of the country itself. They are expected to at least “give him a chance” and/or to “wait and see what happens”.
After covering the specifics of the most recent actions which have been taken against me by the management of my apartment complex in violation of my privacy rights, I will tie said event(s) in with government eradication of privacy through the very recent, completely illegal, and unConstitutional overturning and abrogation of the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (aka Article Four of the Bill of Rights) through the latest FISA legislation which was just passed by the U.S. Senate and signed by “Emperor Bush”. But first, the following is an outline of my own personal experience(s) with Fourth Amendment rights to privacy being violated in my own situation:
Due to the fact that my apartment management appeared to be passing my apartment over for legally required annual inspection, replacement of the heater filter, and checking of the smoke detector, early on Monday morning, 14 July 2008, I faxed a â€œMaintenance Requestâ€ form to said management requesting that such inspection be carried out. This was the first and only Maintanance Request form that I have submitted in the entire five and half (5 and a 1/2) years that I have lived in this apartment complex. But little did I know that the manager was going to retaliate against and harass me for, as she put it a couple of weeks before when I spoke with her in the complex office, my being â€œparticularâ€ about the rule of law being followed, and for submission of the â€œMaintenance Requestâ€ for said inspection, etc.
The very next day, on Tuesday, 15 July 2008, I received reasonable notice that the inspection was going to be carried out between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. (M.D.T.) on Thursday, 17 July 2008. There was nothing in said notice requesting any preparation(s) for the inspection whatsoever, and no indication(s) and/or warning(s) was and/or were given of what was very soon to transpire during such inspection.
As previously described and explained in “My Complaint to the ACLU” of 27 March 2006 (click here to access), I have been targeted by the U.S. government for retribution due to my nothing but peaceful and non-violent stand in defense of civil liberties, seeking redress of legitimate, non-frivolous grievances for violations of law, both by said government and other corporate and/or private parties, and pursuing due process of law through the appropriate agencies and procedures that the government had theretofore encouraged. I was visited by the “Department of Homeland Security (DHS)” and served what essentially amounts to an unConstitutional “federal restraining order” pursuant to the “U.S.A. Patriot Act” and other unConstitutional “laws” (the “Homeland Security Act”, et al.), restricting me from, and seeking to scare me out of, continuing to carry out my free speech rights, and the seeking of redress of grievances and due process of law from the government, unless I want to incur further government retribution and/or threat of serious ramifications resulting from the continued non-violent exercise of those (/my) civil liberties.
I have come to realize, since the filing of my American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Complaint concerning same, that I was setup and/or entrapped by the “U.S. Department of Agriculture (U.S.D.A.)” employee who falsely accused me of threatening her, by her intentionally seeking to anger me with false accusations of my 1.) being a liar, and 2.) recording our phone conversations, in order to provoke an angry response so she could falsely claim, under the new regulations spoken of above, that I threatened her, what the government now very broadly calls, “perceived threatening conduct”. The U.S. government has thereby unConstitutionally and illegally outlawed non-violent free speech expression(s) of anger; and this overly broad perception of “threatening conduct” is obviously unConstitutional because of its criminalizing of free speech and its inherent violation of free speech rights under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (also known as Article One of the Bill of Rights), and because it presumes all those accused of it guilty, without any adjudication or finding thereof by any court of law of relevant jurisdiction, and in completely illegal denial of due process of law thereby, in violation of the Fifth, Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution (otherwise known as the Fifth and Sixth Articles of the Bill of Rights).
When the wanna-be Napoleonic, absolutely-despotic “dictator” and totally tyrannical and treasonous President of the United States, George W. Bush, signed the “Military Commissions Act of 2006” and the “John Warner National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007” on October 17th, 2006, effectively signing away all of the rights delineated in the first ten Amendments of U.S. Constitution known as “The Bill of Rights”, throwing away that which distinguished the U.S. from the rest of the world in protected liberties and freedoms that would have very likely been unheard of in the entire world if it hadn’t been for their beacon of “unalienable rights”, I admit that I was so overwhelmed with dismay and a defeatist attitude, I allowed myself to be rendered almost completely unable to function for these past several months. I still find it difficult to even go on automatically breathing, so disheartening is the level of my consternation over this extremely threatening turn of events.
What is just as dispiriting, if not more so, is that most “Americans” aren’t even aware of, or couldn’t care less about, the dire danger that this “state of the nation” puts ALL of us under. In fact, such is the extremity of their ignorance on this state of affairs, that one is obliged to agree with what has been said recently of this completely perilous and disconcerting situation that, unless these circumstances are immediately and thoroughly remedied, it is “the end of the republic” of the United States. This, very unfortunately, is absolutely no exaggeration whatsoever, and that is just how life-threateningly dangerous this predicament is. For, if enough—and we’re talking about most—Americans don’t wake up completely to the extreme degree of danger that we as a country and people are presently in the throes of, and stand en-masse against it, we are about to head into such a period of darkness, mass-imprisonment and mass-murder, right within our own borders, that an ostensibly “free” country has never before seen in the whole history of this planet.
The two “laws” named above, and others such as the “USA P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act”, the “Homeland Security Act”, and countless “Executive Orders” and/or “Presidential Directives” signed by several Presidents which synergistically reveal the level of their tyranny, treason and threat to all freedom and liberty in the United States and the rest of the world, grant the U.S. government the so-called “power” and “authority” to declare anyone and everyone, including U.S. citizens, “unlawful enemy combatants” and to imprison, torture and murder them for simply exercising “free speech”, criticizing the U.S. government and/or its allies, carrying out protest or dissent, seeking redress of grievances from the government, and/or demanding curtailment of the government’s own excesses, such as those delineated herein, including for simply writing and publishing this very article, all without anything but “kangaroo” or “sham” due process of law “protections”. (More on Presidential Directives and/or Executive Orders via the “FEMA link” below.)
The American flag, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights have now been torn to shreads. “Rest In Peace (RIP)”, Freedom and Liberty. RIP, “the experiment in democracy”.
We have watched in dumb amazement (those of us who have realized what is really going on, that is) as for the past five years the Bill of Rights, the U.S. Constitution, liberty, and freedom have been step by step, systematically eviscerated, first with the so-called “USA P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act (those who criticize it supposedly aren’t patriots)”, and then with the latest afront on domestic freedom and liberty, the “Military Commissions Act of 2006,” also known among other names as the “Detainee Bill”, passed by an almost completely cowed Senate in the dead of night on Friday, the 29th day of September, 2006.
Now NONE OF US is safe. Not civil libertarians, not dissenters, not protesters of even the mildest variety (as virtually everything is now considered “terrorism”), and not even those blind worshippers of the U.S. government or its agents; because, if someone decides they don’t like you, or gets jealous or resentful of you, all they need do is CLAIM you criticized the government, defended “rights”, felt that certain force used against someone was excessive, or committed some other equally innocent “perceived threatening conduct” (some of the federal government’s favorite wording that they now use for those who exercise their inalienable, immutable, inviolable First Amendment rights of Freedom of Speech, Belief and Dissent to disagree with their government), and you will very likely be “disappeared” into custody, stripped of U.S. citizenship, and be interro(r)gated, intimidated, humiliated, terrorized, tortured, and/or very possibly murdered, all without “Due Process of Law” under the Fifth and Fourteen Amendments of the U.S. Constitution, or a fair, unbiased hearing, access to an impartial lawyer, court, judge, or jury; and, if you live through this process, you could be kept secretly imprisoned forever without access to ANYONE important to you. This is NO exageration WHATSOVER; and, if “We, The People” don’t repeal this horrific law, or the U.S. Supreme court doesn’t overturn it, this is the END of our Republic, of Democracy, and of ALL Liberty and Freedom in “the land of the free, and the home of the brave”, and THE END OF ALL protection(s) from a capricious, out of control, dictatorial government.
So, you see, the inviolable freedoms and liberties that we have so taken for granted, and that most Americans now have so little understanding of the supreme importance of, much to our grave detriment, were not overturned by “Islamo-Fascist terrorists”, nor by protesting, dissenting U.S. citizens, nor journalists critical of the government, nor any other equally illusory, contrived, manufactured, engineered, and/or U.S.-government-created, state-sponsored “enemy(ies)”, agents, assets, patsies, bogeymen, infiltra(i)tors, disinfo-agents, detractors, distractors, naysayers, actors, shills, trolls, hackers, informers, spies, entrappers, and/or agents provocateur, etc., but this act of true terrorism was carried out by the very people in our own government who are literally sworn to uphold and protect the U.S. Constitution “from all enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC”, including from THEMSELVES and other tyrannical, ‘absolutely despotic’ (to loosely quote the Declaration of Independence) forces in that very government; and the vast majority of them have COMPLETELY failed us and thrown EVERY SINGLE PERSON in this great country OF OURS into limitless danger and threat(s) by that government to the very safety of EACH AND EVERY ONE OF OUR LIVES.
Impeach for Peace, a Minnesota-based impeachment group, has researched a method for impeaching the president using a little known and rarely used part of the Rules of the House of Representatives ("Jefferson’s Manual"). This document actually empowers individual citizens to initiate the impeachment process themselves.
"Jefferson’s Manual" is an interpretive guide to parliamentary procedure, and is included (along with the Constitution) in the bound volumes of the Rules of the House of Representatives. The section covering impeachment lists the acceptable vehicles for bringing impeachment motions to the floor of the House.
Before the House Judiciary Committee can put together the Articles of Impeachment, someone must initiate the impeachment procedure. Most often, this occurs when members of the House pass a resolution. Another method outlined in the manual, however, is for individual citizens to submit a memorial for impeachment.
After learning this information, Minnesotan and Impeach for Peace member (Jodin Morey) found precedent in an 1826 memorial by Luke Edward Lawless which had been successful in initiating the impeachment of Federal Judge James H. Peck. Impeach for Peace then used this as a template for their "Do-It-Yourself Impeachment." Now any citizen can download the DIY Impeachment Memorial and submit it, making it possible for Americans to do what our representatives have been unwilling to do. The idea is for so many people to submit the Memorial that it cannot be ignored.
Feel free to download it, print out TWO copies, fill in your relevant information in the blanks (name, State, etc.), and send in two letters today (One to the head of the Judiciary, and the other to John Conyers lead Democrat in the House Judiciary). There’s also extra credit for sending a DIY Impeachment to your own representative.
Hold on to the other copy of the two letters until October 12th when we’re having everyone send them in.
That’s right — to make a big impact, we’re having everyone send it in on the same date (Over 30,000 downloads so far). We hope to flood the Judiciary Committee and John Conyers office with sacks of mail and cause a newsworthy event to further pressure the Congress to act on the memorials. Although, it’s important to keep in mind that in the 1826 precedent, impeachment resulted as a result of a single memorial. Yours might be the one.
Get the (form) to send in, and DIRECTLY initiate the impeachment of Bush:
"Why are you waiting until October 12th? That’s too late to force an impeachment before the elections."
Actually, we’re asking people to send in the Do-It-Yourself Impeachment Memorials twice — once immediately, and again in October. Originally we were asking people to send the petitions in October only, but we realized that the situation is just too urgent to wait. We also wanted the time to get the word out about DIY Impeachment, however, so we thought this was the best compromise.
Starting at noon on September 1 2006, participating websites and blogs will replace their front pages with the single word â€œImpeachâ€ in simple white text on a black background. (See this page for an example.) For 24 hours, web surfers and blog readers will see that word first when they visit their favorite sites. In this way, we hope to get the public talking about the one tool guaranteed by the Founders to restore our Constitutional Democracy.
What can I do? If you run a website or blog, then on September 1 2006, replace your home page with the single word â€œImpeachâ€ in bold Times New Roman white text on a black background. Feel free to help yourself to the code here (getting a single word to display in the center of a page in all browsers is a little trickier than you might think). Back up your existing home page first (often index.html) and display this new one for 24 hours, from noon September 1 to noon September 2. If you use the provided code , we have made the â€œperiodâ€ a link which you can customize to allow visitors to enter the rest of your web page.
If you donâ€™t have your own webpage or blog but still think that this is a good idea, then please send this information to your favorite sites and convince them to participate ( click here for a sample message ). Additionally, please feel free to leave a comment here and/or on the Impeachnet.net blog . Just as important as replacing your home page for one day is letting your website visitors know why, so please publicize this both beforehand and afterward. Also, let us know that you plan to participate and we will include a link to your site in our blogroll.
Why just the one word? It is the word. Everyone who sees it will know exactly who and what we are talking about. And it is the one word that most of our elected leaders are afraid to utter.
Doesnâ€™t talk of impeachment just play into the Republican Partyâ€™s hands? Thatâ€™s what they want us to think. Nancy Pelosi, for one, seems to have bought that argument. We donâ€™t. We think that many thoughtful Republicans are looking at the abridgements of Constitutional Democracy perpetrated by this administration against the citizens and the Congress of the United States and understand that impeachment is a very real solution, and they are scared.
Could Bush really be impeached? Yes, and we have a moral obligation to carry this through. It is not necessary for us to list here all of the High Crimes and Misdemeanors committed by this White House. You know them all. The most critical point is this: as bad as this administration is, if we donâ€™t stop them now, then the bar will be set even lower for the next group of criminals that takes over the White House. This is not a partisan issue. This is a citizenâ€™s issue.
But do we really want a President Cheney? Well, no, heâ€™s next. But we would rather have a Cheney who is afraid of us than the other way around.
In honor of Marjorie Cohn, Professor of Law at Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, California, and her TruthOut (.org) articles which she has been absent from writing and posting for the past two months, I hereby post the following series of her last five excellent and very important articles leading up to that absence, as her at-least-weekly articles of truth have been much missed on TruthOut and by this blogger:
In his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, General Michael Hayden promised to promote autonomy and objectivity in the CIA if confirmed as its new director. Hayden assured the senators he would provide “hard-edged assessments” and be tolerant of dissenting views on intelligence matters. “When it comes to speaking truth to power,” Hayden declared, “I will lead CIA analysts by example. I will… always give our nation’s leaders the best analytic judgment.”
The evidence, however, suggests precisely the opposite. As head of the National Security Agency, this 4-star general walked in lockstep with his commander in chief, George W. Bush. Hayden helped designed the illegal program of spying on our telephone calls and emails and then repeatedly defended it when interrogated by the senators at his hearing, citing “legal” opinions of Bush’s hired guns in the Justice Department.
Rather than providing the White House with a neutral assessment of Iran’s nuclear capabilities, we can expect Hayden to give Bush the “intelligence” the president seeks to justify his war on Iran. Things did not run as smoothly as Bush would have wished under the last two CIA directors. He had to dispatch Dick Cheney to the CIA several times to furnish the “intelligence” he needed to rationalize his war on Iraq.
Senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.) asked Hayden if he was “comfortable” with under secretary of defense for policy Douglas Feith’s personal intelligence-analysis cell, which hyped a link between Iraq and Al Qaeda. Hayden said he wasn’t comfortable with it and protested that he wasn’t aware of a lot of the activity going on leading up to the Iraq war.
But when questioned about Colin Powell’s use of false WMD information to support his infamous appearance before the United Nations in the run-up the war, Hayden made a telling admission.
In response to Levin’s question about the legal standard for declassifying information in the public interest, Hayden said, “We used that in Powell’s speech. George [Tenet] had to call me for three tapes.” Hayden was right in the middle of the preparation for Powell’s disingenuous presentation.
