Paul Craig Roberts comes out kicking in his latest post on CounterPunch: "Chuck Norris is no pinko-liberal-commie, and Human Events is a very conservative publication. The two have come together to produce an important article, 'Obamas US Assassination Program.' According to Roberts: "It seems only yesterday that Americans, or those interested in their civil liberties, were shocked that the Bush regime so flagrantly violated the FlSA law against spying on American citizens without a warrant. A federal judge serving on the FISA court even resigned in protest to the illegality of the spying. "Nothing was done about it. 'National security' placed the president and executive branch above the law of the land. Civil libertarians worried that the US government was freeing its power from the constraints of law, but no one else seemed to care." In his two part report at Human Events Chuck cites Obama's plans to move beyond traditional distinctions between homeland and national security thereby criminalizing dissent and criticism of government. "That's right. No arrest. No Miranda rights. No due process. No trial. Just a bullet." Roberts again: "In pursuit of hegemony over both the world and its own subjects, the US government is shutting down the First Amendment and turning criticism of the government into an act of 'domestic terrorism," a capital crime punishable by execution, just as it was in Hitler's Germany and Stalin's Russia. "Initially German courts resisted Hitler's illegal act. Hitler got around the courts by creating a parallel court system, like the Bush regime did with its military tribunals. It won't be long before a decision of the US Supreme Court will not mean anything. Any decision that goes against the regime will simply be ignored." And I suspect elected Republicans AND Democrats will march in lockstep to the echos of Hitler's and Stalin's lies.
