How to read the “confidential Justice Department memo” whitewashing Our Rulers’ outright murder of serfs: as a declaration of war on us specifically and the world in general or as a suicide pact?
That is, assuming you can read it. Not only does the Injustice Department write in its native Jargon, but its screed also suffers from run-on sentences, acronyms, citations, and the bureaucrat’s bewildering disregard for clarity and grammar. Then there are the factual errors and outright lies: to cite just one of innumerable examples, a sentence on page 5 asserts, “The Department assumes that the rights afforded by the Fifth Amendment’s Due Process Clause, as well as the Fourth Amendment, attach to a U.S. citizen even while he is abroad.” But “the Department” clearly “assumes” no such thing since its entire memo pooh-poohs both amendments and all their protection.
Even more pernicious is “the Department’s” deliberate misreading of the Bill of Rights. That document never refers to “citizens” but purposefully to “people.” Nor does it enumerate their rights: it cannot, because said rights are infinite in number. Rather, it constrains the State. To that end, it absolutely prohibits government from various crimes, including those “the Department” now encourages, regardless of “the people’s” whereabouts or nationality.
But worse than the impenetrable prose and the falsehoods is the memo’s wickedness. Utter, unmitigated, fathomless evil shrieks from every paragraph – so overwhelming and so nauseating that while the Injustice Department claims authorship, I contend that this commentary originated not in its halls, demonic as they are, but in Hell.
As such, it declares war on everyone everywhere, though it presumably exempts a handful of Feds – the ones who wrote this balderdash and those who will execute it, so to speak. After all, this “white paper” “concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed“ – sans charge or trial – “to be ‘senior operational leaders’ of al-Qaida or ‘an associated force’ … ” We’ve seen how messy such assassinations are: when the Fedcoats slaughtered a 16-year-old American citizen because of his father’s identity – yeah, I thought corruption of blood went out centuries ago, too – they butchered eight other folks as well.
