Machine Gun-Toting Officers To Patrol NYC Subway


M4 Carbine Rifles, MP5 Submachine Guns & Bomb Sniffing Dogs Part Of New "Torch Team" Anti-Terror Efforts


It's a first for mass transit in the United States. NYPD officers, armed with rifles, submachine guns, body armor and bomb-sniffing dogs will begin patrolling the city's subway system thanks to a 50 percent increase in a homeland security grant.  FULL ARTICLE=>


LC Editor's Comment:  It may be a first for mass transit in the U.S., but it certainly will not be the last.


When will the American sheeple finally get it that the police state is already here?  Indeed incidents of government oppression of freedom, suppression of speech, and brutal treatment of otherwise innocient citizens who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time by some law enforcement officers is becoming commonplace in U.S. 


There are plenty of other indications that the police state is here already.  For example, police-manned outdoor surveillance cameras are everywhere and thousands more are added daily in American cities, towns and villiages.  Our phones are tapped, our bank accounts are monitored and our Internet communications are surveyed by authorities, these actions taken by Homeland Security, the FBI and the police supposedly to protect us from from the big, bad terrorists, who have turned out to be absent players in the costly mulit-billion charade we should have the title “catch terrorists before they pull another 9/11”, which is funded by the American taxpayers. 


Potential terrorists caught through the snooping effors of the authorities would presumably end up in the prison camps currently under construction Brown & Root, which was awarded a several hundred million dollar contract by Home Security a couple of year ago for this task.


My question to LC readers is this: Haven’t Americas had enough of the ever growing, rapacious police state under which they live now and which is consuming not only their spirit but also their financial resources?   Isn’t it time for still slumbering Americans to wake up and smell the rotten stench of our financially crippled, decaying republic as the corrupt, traitorous cabal that has taken over Washington transforms the land of the free and the home of the brave day by day into a wretchedly barbaric, totalitarian, fascist state. It’s time to take our republic back. 


What will be needed for starters if we are to take our republic back from the cabal is the mass voting out of all incumbents at the polls in November.  This task must also include rejecting the candidates now considered by the Republican and Democrat king makers as viable candidates for residence in the White House, and their replacement (with the exception of Ron Paul and a few other members of Congress loyal to constitutional principles) with elected officials who have track records of honesty and dedication to constitutional principles.  It will also require that Americans dedicated to taking the republic back from the the traitorous thieves who stole it become involved in local government, perhaps actually running for office.


Must Americans wait for the U.S. to become the largest, most corrupt, bankrupt, degenerate banana republic in the western hemisphere before they at last stand together arm in arm and shout "No more! No more! No more!” and really mean it?  Or would now be a better time for them to move into action?

Iran Says it Will 'Eliminate' Israel if it is Attacked by that Nation 

      LC Editor’s Comment: A justifiable position both legally and morally on the part of Iran’s leaders.


US: Iranian Threats to 'Eliminate' Israel Justify Int'l Sanctions

      LC Editor’s Comment: This justification is based upon King George’s unpublished and ever changing Rules of Law, Economics and War, which are, in summary, these:


--King George, known officially as President George W. Bush, is always correct morally and legally, and all Americans should regard as traitors -- if not outright terrorists -- any and all persons who disagree with his thoughts or statements or actions or fail to believe in his infallibility. 


--The King may elect to with impunity obey or enforce U.S. or International Law or not to do so.  Should Congress fail to originate or pass legislation he wants to have available for his use, the King may create his own law through the issuance of Executive Orders or secret Presidential Directives or shall state that the Constitution has already provided him --- the President --- with the authority the new legislation would have provided had it been passed by the Congress and laid on his desk for his signature.


--According to the King, the U.S. Constitution has no more value or legal authority than the scribbles on any scrap of paper he might choose to crush into a ball and toss into a waste paper basket   The Constitution is to be regarded as having only sentimental or historical value. What King George says or writes is necessarily the law of the land, since his authority as a unitary president operating as the Commander in Chief trumps the authority of both the legislative and judicial branches of the federal government.


--King George may order the military forces of the U.S. attack and destroy any nation he regards to pose a military or economic threat to the US or its sister country, Israel, or which he believes may harbor persons who could be terrorists or whose leaders have fail or may fail to comply with his wishes.  


--King George has the authority to create law, though he may operate through Congress to provide credibility of his doing so if he needs to obtain widespread public acceptance of certain laws the people might otherwise resist the enforcement of on the grounds that these law violate the basic U.S. Constitution as well as the Bill of Rights and International Law.


--In order to obtain the moral support of the American people and Congress’ authorization for the budget he needs in order to wage all-out pre-emptive war against nations he wishes to conquer, King George and members of the administration may, without fear of repercussions, lie to both Congress and American people about the war making capabilities of these nations and assert that their leaders intend to attack either the U.S. or Israel at some time in future whether or not any independent, verifiable evidence exists to support these assertions.     


--According to the King’s Rules of War, if either the King or the Prime Minister of Israel orders a military attack upon any nation, these orders are necessarily justifiable on the basis of their interpretation of International Law even if the attacked nation has neither threatened to carry out nor actually executed unprovoked military operations against either the U.S. or Israel. 


--Furthermore, any nation attacked by either the U.S. or Israel that threatens to or actually defends itself against attack, or attacks either the U.S. or Israel in reprisal, shall be deemed a violator of International Law and the Charter of the United Nations and shall be subject to severe economic sanctions imposed by the U.S. and Israel upon this nation. 


--The King’s Rules allow him to spend as much of the American people’s money he wishes in waging war.  Furthermore, the American people should regard any members of Congress who fail to support his budget requests in support of any and all of his wars as traitors and at the very least closet terrorists. 


Well, that sums up what appear to be the key features of King Georges Rules of Law, Economic and War, which, by the way, have never been set in stone and are subject to change at any time by King George -- A monarch may change his mind for any reason or for no reason at all at any time.


Isn’t it about time the American people had all members of the Bush administration along with all but a handful Congressmen and federal judges tarred and feathered and put on a fast train headed out of D.C.? 


But if not that, then the American people certainly need to vote out of office all incumbents up for election in November and vote in only those new candidates for office who are willing to denounce the shameful behavior of the Bush administration since its beginning as well as that of all but a handful of the members of Congress who have over the past seven-and-one-half years supported Mr. Bush’s shameful leadership, his willingness to support the use of torture, his lying and his detestable military and foreign policy making. 


The American people also need to reject out of hand the gruesome three-some set of candidates the political kingmakers have chosen to offer the voters: McCain, Obama and Clinton!


There is a far better choice still available to the voters.  That far better choice is still Rep. Ron Paul.  It’s time for us to create a miracle, my fellow Americans. We can do it. 


America needs a fresh start.  A complete housecleaning, a from-the-top-to-the-bottom removal from office and replacement of all the scoundrels, traitors and thieves, the politicians we elected to be our servants and which we have allowed to become our masters, with honest, duty-bound and freedom-loving men and women who love our republic and respect, obey and cherish the Constitution should be our order of the day.
