MEDIA BLACKOUT OF DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT

December 9, 2011 By Joseph P. Farrell

A couple of weeks ago noted that a Republithug presidential candidate, whose first name resembles that of a lizard, made a remark during a presidential "debate" that basically inaugurated the principle of a two track system of law, one embodying our constitutional liberties, and another embodying the "notional security" requirements of our national security state, a legal system that effectively suspends all constitutional liberties for an individual if he or she is designated a national security risk. Well, now there is this:

The MEdia Black of the National Defense Authroization

What interests me here is the timing of all this, for I am not a bit surprised that the Dummycrooks and Republithugs would contemplate doing this, I've become that cynical about the political non-process of presidential selection in this country: "Here are our oligarchs=approved list of candidates, now choose from our pre-approved list." I'm not surprised at that, as much as I am deeply cynical about the media blackout of any coverage of it.

The fact alone that there is no national nor public debate on this nonsense except for the lone voice of Ron Paul, who attempted to call out the Lizard on his slippery slope into tyranny. Let us be very clear: at no time in human history when such acts have been enacted to protect the "security" of "the People," "das Volk" or "the peace of the realm" has it led to anything less than abuses of those acts against the people, since the act is inevitably used to silence voices of dissent, voices of protest, those who dare question the New Order of Things. That's you and me folks.

It is my rather grim opinion that this is less directed at Iranian used car salesmen in Texas, or at crazed jihadists who might smuggle a nuke inside out borders, in spite of the billions we spend on our intelligence agencies, but rather is directed precisely at the voices of dissent, the Tea Partiers and Occupiers who have had enough of the crony capitalism of mercantilism, of banksters in the Fed bailing out their criminally irresponsible in the brokerage houses, mortgage houses, and corrupt and all-powerful banks.

But that should give, at least, some cheer, that they are getting that nervous to begin with. But make no mistake, the media needs to be held accountable for their neglect of this story. They need to to that they, too, are going to be held accountable for their slackery.
