published a photo of
presidential appointees lying through their teeth to Congress.
Yet, they have not been arrested and put on trial.
Congress is content to sit there and listen to
their ongoing lies time after time after time, despite the fact that these 5

"terrorists" that serve as an excuse for the crimes committed by the
James Clapper, who has the grand title of Director Of National Intelligence, is an admitted liar to the US Congress but nevertheless remains in office.
That Clapper is still in office is a good measure of the decline both in the integrity of the US government and in the integrity that Congress, media, and the public expect from the government.
President Nixon was driven from office for a very small thing: Nixon lied about when he learned about a burglary with which he had nothing to do.
Clapper brazenly lied to the US Congress, denying that he was spying on members of the US Congress. Clapper is not only in violation of the Constitution, he has committed a felony, especially under the stretched interpretation of laws that is the norm for Department of Justice prosecutions.
Huge numbers of Americans are in prison for
offenses that are molehills compared to Clapper’s, or for that matter, any
of the other five sitting there lying to Congress.
Rabid Republican warmongers have falsely and propagandistically accused Snowden of being "a Russian spy." What utter dishonesty!
The only reason Snowden is in Russia is that the
US, in violation of international law, refuses to allow an airplane to fly
from Russia with Snowden to any of the South American countries that have
granted Snowden asylum. The fact that Snowden is in Russia is entirely the
fault of Washington.
"National Security" is the blanket under which
the crimes of government are hidden.
The so-called "security agencies" and their media whores have created a wartime atmosphere of fear as if the "world’s only superpower" was about to be destroyed by a handful of lightly armed fighters thousands of miles away who resist Washington’s invasions of their countries in corners of the earth that most Americans cannot find on a map.
What kind of superpower is so terrified by
peoples that the superpower chooses to invade and murder? If the wronged
people are so threatening, the superpower should stay at home and leave them
The truth is the opposite of what Clapper states.
Snowden alerted us to the fact that Clapper was
shredding the US Constitution that is our greatest protection. Clapper, who
should be in the dock for treason, has stolen our rights and our shield
against harm and abuse from arbitrary government power. Clapper is an enemy
of every American.
But the general knew how to invoke the sympathy and support of the right-wing superpatriots.
He declared that the greatest cost of Snowden’s revelations is,
He is, of course, talking about the next time
that Washington criminally attacks another country in total violation of the
Was this sincere or a cop-out? Why is Mikulski passing the buck? The current Republican Supreme Court is corrupt and will not defend the Constitution.
One of the leading Republican lights, as dimly
lit as he is, Justice Antonin Scalia, truthfully said that
concentration camps are a likely future reality for Americans and that the
Supreme Court would not do anything about the tyranny should the executive
branch think it necessary.
Nothing will be fixed until the Five Criminals are arrested and put on trial for treason and until Congress defunds the illegal wars and states firmly, backed up with the threat of impeachment, that there is no such thing as "the unitary executive" who is above law, Constitution, Congress, and the federal courts.
The Supreme Court will not protect us. Congress must put the executive branch on notice that it is not above the law and the Constitution. Americans have lost the rule of law.
Unless Congress quickly restores it, the country
