THE MOST TRANSPARENT ADMINISTRATION
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
Over the past 7 years, there have been more federal inquiries into corruption, illegal activities, unconstitutional mandates and over-extension of presidential authority than ever before in history. It is an ongoing and growing problem for decades and is now overwhelming.
One of Obama’s signature promises was that he’d have “the most transparent administration” in U.S. History. His has proven to be the least` transparent administration. Each respondent to a congressional or criminal investigation has either voiced their Fifth Amendment rights, claimed ignorance of the situation under their jurisdiction, claimed inability to recall information or simply was never made aware of the situation under investigation.
Documentation requested under FOIA is either so heavily redacted that no benefit is received by their release or the full release is delayed until the investigative commission is disbanded.
Understanding that invoking the Fifth Amendment is a declaration of possible criminal activity, shouldn’t the investigating committee or agency make the declarant a target of involvement in that activity and investigate him or her extensively? The witness can’t be forced to answer any questions in such a way that might incriminate himself or herself. But what is wrong with including them, not as witnesses, but as targets from that point forward?
NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT
According to President Obama’s national security advisor, Susan Rice, there are too many white people in key government positions. This endangers the national security because they all look alike.
Perhaps a few more Muslim Brotherhood members or illegal aliens would satisfy Ms. Rice’s need for more and greater security through diversity. Personally, I believe fewer sycophants of all colors, religions and ethnicities might be the answer. More people dedicated to the nation instead of global socialism and absolute power would definitely be an improvement over what we now have.
The recent event at Andrews Air Base was one of conditioning. This is the kind of thing we can expect to continue to happen. Seeing the U.S. Military active in law enforcement situations on United States soil is necessary before declaring martial law.
The activity was broadcast by every major news station. People alerted one another and all tuned in to see how a military base could have been infiltrated and how the incident would be handled. As it turns out, it was just a drill; an active shooter drill about which seemingly few people were made aware.
We are at the end of the holy month of Ramadan in which ISIS has pledged to carry out as many terrorist activities throughout the world as possible. They have carried out their pledge, but this event was meant to acclimatize the American public.
The “active shooter” event might be a public display of the Jade Helm exercise. The military taking groups, areas or towns under command through intimidation and authoritarian assertiveness is what we can now expect from this and future administrations.
Desensitizing the masses through repetition is a controlling measure necessary for any autocracy to assume absolute power.
