4th Amendment Inapplicable Inside the USA…Huh?

If you are having problems viewing this blog, please hold down the control key on your keyboard, (Ctrl) and using the ball on your mouse, roll it towards you. This will make the text larger.

Getting used to the bush administration’s lack of lawfulness, my jaw still dropped on this one. Now, you’d think I would have gotten inured to the constant trampling of our Bill of Rights, sadly, I keep thinking I still live in America where this isn’t supposed to happen. I seem to have erred in my thinking though and sometime in the past, without knowing it, I moved out of my Belove United States of America and into some third world country where I have a petulant little boy for a ruler.

This petulant little boy thinks he knows everything, thinks he makes good decisions, and thinks this country is his play toy. My opinion is he can go to hell. He can kiss my white behind. And if I could personally sue him for mismanagement, crimes against the American People, war crimes and others, I would. He has failed this country, destroyed the credibility of his high office, and made a mockery of democracy!

U.S. Constitution: Fourth Amendment

Fourth Amendment – Search and Seizure Amendment Text | Annotations

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Here is yet another shining example of the bush administration at large

:

Published on Saturday, April 5, 2008 by Salon.com The US Establishment Media in a Nutshell by Glenn Greenwald In the past two weeks, the following events transpired.

A Department of Justice memo, authored by John Yoo, was released which authorized torture and presidential lawbreaking. It was revealed that the Bush administration declared the Fourth Amendment of the Bill of Rights to be inapplicable to “domestic military operations” within the U.S. The U.S. Attorney General appears to have fabricated a key event leading to the 9/11 attacks and made patently false statementsabout surveillance laws and related lawsuits.

Barack Obama went bowling in Pennsylvania and had a low score.

Here are the number of times, according to NEXIS, that various topics have been mentioned in the media over the past thirty days: “

Yoo and torture” – 102

Mukasey and 9/11″ — 73

Yoo and Fourth Amendment” — 16

Obama and bowling” — 1,043

Obama and Wright” — More than 3,000 (too many to be counted)

Obama and patriotism” – 1,607

Clinton and Lewinsky” — 1,079

Now the original article is about media bias and things like that. But it was first paragraph that struck me. The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution is “inapplicable to “domestic military operations” within the U.S. Never in my whole life did I think to see or read that! Never! How does this administration get away with such things?

And those numbers above, are you seeing what I’m seeing? Down-play the important, up-play the inconsequential! I know we used to say reports didn’t have a conscience because of what they would do to get a story, but now it seems they do nothing at all. They sit back and let the sound bites come to them. I wonder if they are proud of themselves. Whatever happened to journalism and investigative reporting? Guess it doesn’t pay as well as Obama.

From11-2007 I looked at on the web from the Army, I found this on the 5th page.

A. Early References to Double Jeopardy “No person shall . . . be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb . . . .”20 So says the Bill of Rights. But how did the nation get there, and what did it do in the years between the ratification of the Constitution and the adoption of the Bill of Rights?21 The Framers of the Constitution did not include any form of double jeopardy protection in the original document. They were primarily concerned with the creation and preservation of the United States as a federal entity.22 The Declaration of Independence had indicted King George III for abuses of his citizen-subjects;23 the Constitution

So I ask myself, if the 4th Amendment to the Constitution is * Inapplicable *, what else is ” Inapplicable?” That’s a really scary thought when you think that they have pretty much abolished the !st Amendment with the Homegrown Domestic Terrorist Act. Two of our rights down the toilet. It is time for a revolution.

Do you know that I could be considered a terrorist just for saying that? It is true. Doesn’t matter that I do not advocate violence, doesn’t matter that I just want MY country back. Only that I am disagreeing with the feds. That’s all it takes.

H.R. 1955: Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism

H.R. 1955: Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007. Rep. Jane Harmon legislation.

HOMEGROWN TERRORISM- The term `homegrown terrorism’ means the use, planned use, or threatened use, of force or violence by a group or individual born, raised, or based and operating primarily within the United States or any possession of the United States to intimidate or coerce the United States government, the civilian population of the United States, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.

JMCO = Just My Cynical Opinion If this legislation (which granted still needs to pass the Senate) does not scare the reality of what has happened to our Democracy – than you are hopeless. President John F. Kennedy April 1961 audio bytes to the Press Corps. Video by Voice of Americans 2008

This isn’t my United States of America. This is someone else’s idea. I don’t like this much at all. I can’t respect a government that turns its citizens into criminals just because they disagree with it. Will someone with real guts and an American outlook please enter the race for the Presidency?
