AMERICA'S SYSTEM OF JUSTICE -- A BROKEN SYSTEM
By Christopher G. Adamo
Yet, the Governor of Florida, whose job it ostensibly is to protect citizens from being deprived of life, liberty or property, absent due process of law, stands impotently by and allows the travesty to proceed to its malevolent end, claiming that intervention on her behalf would be contrary to “the rule of law.”
Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., former Clinton National Security Advisor Sandy Berger receives an absurdly mild fine and no jail time for a crime he committed against the American people. Last year, Berger was caught stealing and destroying documents from the National Archives. Those documents contained crucial classified information pertaining to lapses in national security during the Clinton years that left America open to the Islamist terrorist attacks of 9-11.
Destroying evidence of problems that increased the nation’s vulnerability to terrorism can only undercut efforts to correct the situation, and thus constitutes nothing less than a treasonous abetting of al-Qa'ida’s sinister agenda. In consideration of the gravity of his actions, the imposition of a mere ten thousand dollar fine on Berger makes a mockery of American justice .
Adding insult to injury, Berger’s security clearance has been rescinded for a period of three years. On what basis do government lawyers believe that a man who could commit such a heinous act will miraculously be rehabilitated by then? In truth, Berger’s clearance will be reinstituted just at the proper time for him to be qualified to hold office if a Democrat takes the White House in 2008.
Despite the nature of Berger’s crime, little is being said by Washington insiders in condemnation of him. Furthermore, the light sentence was based in part on Berger’s assertion that he didn’t mean to hide or suppress vital information.
So where does the U.S. federal government go in order to clean up the widespread corruption in its midst? Recurring discussion of campaign finance “reform” legislation provides a disturbing answer. Despite the best efforts of Senator John McCain (R.-AZ) to “clean up politics” by imposing restrictions on the free speech of American citizens, the 2004 election cycle saw the advent of “527 Organizations,” so named for the tax code provision under which they exist.
The most prominent players in the election were “Moveon.org” -- the spawn of Liberal billionaire George Soros -- and the “Swift Boat Veterans For Truth,” the latter comprised of former Vietnam veterans who disputed John Kerry’s accounts of his “heroism” while briefly stationed in Southeast Asia.
That the vast wealth which Soros poured into his organization could not compete with the facts put forth by the Swift Vets, operating on a comparative shoe-string budget, clearly disproves McCain’s assertion that the political process is corrupted by money. Yet, it is not money, but the flexing of political muscle by the unwashed peasantry, that McCain and his elitist cohorts in Washington despise.
President George Bush, while supporting campaign finance “reform” and avoiding criticism of Berger, has finally become aware of activities by Americans that he is willing to condemn in unequivocal terms.
The “Minuteman Project,” made up of concerned U.S. citizens who are frustrated with governmental inaction in response to the uncontrolled invasion of illegal immigrants from Mexico, has begun patrolling a portion of the American/Mexican border. The group hopes to thus stem the flow of illegal aliens passing through that region.
South of the border, Mexican gangs have threatened the Minutemen, in an attempt to intimidate them. Not surprisingly, the ACLU is “monitoring” the Minutemen, essentially fulfilling an identical role.
The Minutemen have been roundly condemned by Mexican President Vicente Fox . With considerable indifference to the sentiments of the American people, President Bush refers to them as “vigilantes,” thereby deriding their efforts as something less than honorable. In deference to Fox, President Bush will not even characterize the Mexican and other invaders as “illegal.”
How can this nation’s government be so accommodating to a massive influx of people (including many from terrorist supporting nations) in clear violation of the law, while excoriating decent Americans who do no more than protect their nation from the invasion? How can “the law” be alternately upheld and ignored so selectively? Clearly, “justice” in America is fast becoming nothing more than a dark myth.
