THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THINKS
THEY ARE THE GOOD GUYS
“When they call the roll in the Senate, the Senators do not know whether to
answer ‘Present’ or ‘Not Guilty’.” ― Theodore Roosevelt
In the past and future trials of the Bundy et al defendants, who have been imprisoned for over 489 days without a guilty verdict, the federal prosecutors along with their team mate, Gloria Navarro, are attempting to show that the defendants are anti-government and in the language style of Trump, “bad people, very bad”.
Speaking in lawyer-ese, the federal team are essentially saying, “the government are the good guys, the defendants are the bad guys” and that the defendants should be punished for daring to stand up to the “good guys.”
The prosecution is hoping to convince the jury, and the public at large, that the Bundy et al defendants and their supporters are the bad guys, and that they are “domestic terrorists” worthy of hate and extreme punishment for daring to act upon a belief that their government is capable of wrong doing.
Paul Inman says it well,
“The United States Government wants, We the People, to believe that this quote is attributable to Cliven Bundy, or one of his sons who are currently jailed as political prisoners, Ryan, Ammon, Dave, or Mel.
The US Government, and the corrupt mainstream media have worked at presenting the Bundy family and others who believe similarly, as anarchists, anti-government, etc. The Bundys believe in the US Constitution as a legitimate document meant to govern and guide the actions of the federal government; they even believe that it’s inspired of God.
That is far from being anti-government; in fact, it’s pro-limited government, and there are some extremely important differences.”
THE OPPOSITE OF AN OXYMORON
The Bundy et al supporters have stated that, “we are not anti-government but anti-corrupt government”. However, the expression, “corrupt government” is known as a tautology, opposite of an oxymoron.
A tautology is the opposite of an oxymoron, two words that contradict each other, such as the living dead. The words of a tautology mean the same thing: a dead corpse is a tautology because corpse itself means “dead”.
Corrupt government is a tautology. Government, the more powerful it is, will inevitably become corrupt. I base this on the many statements of the founders of the USA and others, who were concerned that giving power to a few was a sure recipe for corruption.
THE FEDERAL PROSECUTORS CLAIM THAT THEY ARE THE EXCEPTION
Lord Action, British politician known for his statement about power corrupting absolutely, seemed to be speaking directly to the federal prosecutors when he said:
Like popes and kings, the federal prosecutors would have us believe that the federal government are “unlike other men, with a favorable presumption that they do no wrong”.
Tragically, much of the American public buys what the prosecutors are selling, that the federal government of the USA is the exception to the rule. What happened in other civilized countries like Germany, Russia, China, Japan, Chile, Cuba, Venezuela, etc. in terms of centralized corruption, simply cannot happen in the good ole USA because the USA has checks and balances against corruption. Therefore, what happened in all other countries throughout history, cannot happen in the USA because the USA is special and an exception.
The government narrative is strengthened by Obama, who told students at a commencement exercise:
“They’ll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices.” Obama to Ohio State University grads, 2013.
So, according to Obama, the rising generation has nothing to fear, and that what has happened throughout history, government corruption, will not happen in the USA.
EXAMPLES OF CORRUPTION IN THE GOOD OLE’ USA
“When the President does it , that means that it is not illegal.” ― Richard M. Nixon
President Nixon would have made a good federal prosecutor. Myrhe and his band of prosecutors, apply the same logic of Nixon, but to the entire federal government. In the federal prosecutor world, Dan Love and the BLM law enforcers can do no wrong. Why? Because they have the benefit of being federal and all things federal are protected by federal statute, federal immunity and federal unlimited resources.
Whether we are talking about Watergate or we are talking about other examples of USA government corruption, history is rich in examples.
As the author of the following linked article points out, the corruption in the USA is more sophisticated than in Mexico with local level bribes, but the USA government corruption, based on an economy worth $16 trillion, is far more extensive than the petty bribes in Mexico. He says:
“The US has a vast gulag of 2.2 million prisoners in jail and penitentiary. There is an increasing tendency for prisons to be privatized, and this tendency is corrupting the system. It is wrong for people to profit from putting and keeping human beings behind bars.
This troubling trend is made all the more troubling by the move to give extra-long sentences for minor crimes, to deny parole and to imprison people for life for e,g, three small thefts.”
A JURY OF PEERS, THE LAST LINE OF DEFENSE AGAINST RAMPANT FEDERAL CORRUPTION
The federal team (judge, prosecutors, marshals, alphabet soup agencies, etc) are desperate to get as many convictions as possible from all the Bundy et al defendants. It is my opinion, that the desperation arises from a concern that they can checkmate or control everything, except the jury.
Although, with regard to the jury, they are pulling out all stops to do whatever it takes to manipulate, control, influence, and withhold evidence from the jury in such a way that they can get a guilty verdict. While it is pure speculation, one can almost picture Harry Reid checking in each evening, asking for debriefing with the federal team and participating in the strategy formulation or, if not Harry Reid, some other higher up in D.C..
AMMON BUNDY SPEAKS FROM PRISON
Known for his beautifully simple and simply beautiful wisdom, Ammon Bundy has stated in a recorded conversation from prison:
“Those who fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.”
Ammon is right, “What does history teach us?”. If we listen to the federal prosecutors, history is not relevant, rather, according to the federal team, what is relevant is what they say is relevant.
“Imagine a problem in psychology: to find a way of getting people in our day and age – Christians, humanitarians, nice, kind people – to commit the most heinous crimes without feeling any guilt.
There is only one solution – doing just what we do now: you make them governors, superintendents, officers or policemen, a process which, first of all, presupposes acceptance of something that goes by the name of government service and allows people to be treated like inanimate objects, precluding any humane or brotherly relationships,
and, secondly, ensures that people working for this government service must be so interdependent that responsibility for any consequences of the way they treat people never devolves on any one of them individually.”
― Leo Tolstoy, Resurrection
