On the Right of the People to Nullify Federal Diktats

It looks like we will have a turn to the left with more socialism if Joe Biden gets in power, which means President Kamala Harris, and probably AOC as the Speech and Thought Commissar who will distribute a long list of those the administration has determined to be “racists,” etc, i.e. anyone who disagrees with the Regime.

So this will be a time in which those who believe in the freedom and principles of the Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights will have to seriously consider, if not full secession and genuine independence then nullification of the further federal edicts that Biden or Harris will attempt to shove down our throats. (And this isn’t just because of the illegitimacy of their presidency given that they imposed a coup via a massive organized racketeering operation of fraud and vote tampering and fabricating.)

To get a good idea on the right and importance of nullification, I recommend Tom Woods’s book from 2010, Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century. Here it is at the Mises Institute store, and Amazon.

I have quoted before from this blog post by Tom Woods and will again, in his explanation of the relationship between the states and the federal government:

If you and I give a third person (call him Person C) a limited power of attorney to help govern our affairs, and that person oversteps the boundaries outlined in the contract we signed, who gets to decide if Person C is in violation of the contract? Is it Person C himself? Or is it you and I, the people who wrote and signed the limited power of attorney in the first place? Likewise, the states, as the principals to the constitutional compact, have a far better logical claim to be the judges of constitutionality than their agent, the federal government.

In Woods’s Liberty Classroom page on nullification, he writes:

1) The states preceded the Union.  The Declaration of Independence speaks of “free and independent states” that “have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do.” The British acknowledged the independence not of a single blob, but of individual states, which they proceeded to list one by one. Article II of the Articles of Confederation says the states “retain their sovereignty, freedom, and independence”; they must have enjoyed that sovereignty in the past in order for them to “retain” it in 1781 when the Articles were officially adopted.  The ratification of the Constitution was accomplished not by a single, national vote, but by the individual ratifications of the various states, each assembled in convention.

2) In the American system no government is sovereign.  The peoples of the states are the sovereigns.  It is they who apportion powers between themselves, their state governments, and the federal government.  In doing so they are not impairing their sovereignty in any way. To the contrary, they are exercising it.

3) Since the peoples of the states are the sovereigns, then when the federal government exercises a power of dubious constitutionality on a matter of great importance, it is they themselves who are the proper disputants, as they review whether their agent was intended to hold such a power.  No other arrangement makes sense.  No one asks his agent whether the agent has or should have such-and-such power.  In other words, the very nature of sovereignty, and of the American system itself, is such that the sovereigns must retain the power to restrain the agent they themselves created.  James Madison explains this clearly in the famous Virginia Report of 1800.

There is further information on that Nullification resource page. And Woods answers some of the objections to Nullification, such as the claims that it violates the Constitution’s supremacy clause, that it doesn’t appear in the Constitution, that the Supreme Court ruled against the idea, that it was used by the southern states to defend slavery, and other objections.

So of course people have the right to live their lives however they want, as long as they are peaceful. Given that the Declaration of Independence recognizes the unalienable right of each individual to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, then of course the people of the states have a right to nullify federal diktats.

For example, healthcare. As I wrote in my June of 2011 article on disobeying dictators,

Now, by “disobeying dictators,” I am not advocating violence, but only that people live their lives as they see fit, as long as they do not intrude on anyone else’s equal right to do the same with their lives. So there comes a time when civil disobedience is in order. By civil disobedience, I mean acting in defiance of government-imposed rules and dictates that have nothing to do with protecting life, liberty and property. This includes individual- or state-nullification of federal orders. I believe in the Non-Aggression Principle and oppose the use of aggression as an initiated means toward an end.

Like in the old Soviet Union, Obama’s government-controlled medical scheme will not only be harmful medically, but the increasing police state we are experiencing will be used to enforce the controls, and also will be used against individuals who show dissent from the government’s authoritarian dictates.

We The People don’t need all that, and we don’t want it. We want freedom and peace. (At least I do.)

Now, what would happen if doctor’s offices, hospitals, medical equipment manufacturers, drug and supplement makers, and insurers just decided to do their business with their consumers – honestly and peacefully, and without aggression or fraud – and totally ignore federal regulations, mandates, fees, licensure laws and other intrusions? Frankly, those intrusions’ only real purpose is to protect established physicians and businesses’ profits from prospective competitors and start-ups. (The medical establishment was already corrupt well before ObamaCare.)

The contracts involved in the relationships between doctors or other medical providers and patients, or between insurers and patients, are private contracts, and third parties such as government bureaucrats sticking their big noses into those private contracts are committing acts of criminality, of trespassing, in my opinion.

Acts of nullification are necessary for Americans to be better served in their medical needs. With freedom, the consumers would determine what is needed, not the government, and the producers would serve the consumers – quality of medical care would then rise and the prices would fall.

So I definitely recommend Tom Woods’s book on nullification, which people should send to their state legislators and even their U.S. congressmen and senators.

On the Amazon page it quotes “from the inside flap”:

Unconstitutional laws are pouring out of Washington…but we can stop them.

Just ask Thomas Jefferson. There is a “rightful remedy” to federal power grabs–it’s called Nullification.

In Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century, historian and New York Times bestselling author Thomas E. Woods, Jr. explains not only why nullification is the constitutional tool the Founders envisioned, but how it works–and has already been employed in cases ranging from upholding the First Amendment to knocking down slave laws before the Civil War. In Nullification, Woods shows:

* How the states were meant to be checks against federal tyranny–and how a growing roster of governors and state attorneys general are recognizing they need to become that again
* Why the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution reinforces the rights of states to nullify unconstitutional laws
* Why it was left to the states to uphold the simple principle that an unconstitutional law is no law at all
* Why, without nullification, ordinary Americans will continue to suffer the oppression of unjust, unconstitutional laws
* PLUS thorough documentation of how the Founding Fathers believed nullification could be applied

Nullification is not just a book–it could become a movement to restore the proper constitutional limits of the federal government. Powerful, provocative, and timely, Nullification is sure to stir debate and become a constitutional handbook for all liberty-loving Americans.

We already have a lot of federal bureaucracies and agencies which shouldn’t exist and should be abolished along with all of their regulations and fees and fines. None of them is authorized by the U.S. Constitution, and if they exist, then the people have a right to nullify them. Of course, it is helpful if such nullification is made official in state laws by the state legislatures.

Can You Take the Anti-Lockdown/Mask Protests to the Governor’s Home?

Besides the recent mask and lockdown protests outside the homes of the governors of Utah, Minnesota, Michigan, Kentucky and Texas, among others I’m sure, there has been debate over whether such protests outside someone’s home is appropriate.

As long as protests are peaceful, of course they can do that.

And the latest protests took place in New Hampshire, the “Live Free or Die” state (a motto that has been hanging by a thread, quite frankly), outside Gov. Sununu’s home as well as that of the state’s attorney general.

The writer on the “Free Keene” blog writes:

Many had been pushed over their limit by his recent statewide mask mandate, but it wasn’t just about him trying to tell people what to wear, it was also about ruining businesses and destroying jobs and lives with his “emergency orders”.

Sununu’s edicts have invaded our homes and businesses, so now we’re invading his.

It was a great day for us, but probably not for Sununu as he hid inside his home like the cowardly, sniveling politician he is.

And then on Thanksgiving day the protesters were outside the home of NH attorney general Gordon MacDonald.

the protest at MacDonald’s house was organized in secret. As a result, police were not waiting on-site as they were at Sununu’s. However, it didn’t take long for the cops to be called by MacDonald’s attorney wife, Jennifer A Eber.

Eber was not happy, demanding we be removed from “her property”. The attorney couple owns three large wooded lots across the street from their home, so Eber mistakenly believed that would protect them from such a protest. However, she didn’t realize the very same state gang that puts food on her table also has rules for “public ways” that allow us to engage in protests just like this. Apparently she doesn’t like it when people bring the destructive consequences of her husband’s actions home for her to experience.

As long as her husband keeps ruining peaceful people’s lives, and invading their businesses and homes with his bureaucracy, threats, and fines, she can expect we’ll continue to remind her about it.

There weren’t nearly as many protesters outside the attorney general’s home as there were at the governor’s home protest. The protesters are not wearing masks, because, being humans, they need oxygen. I like the fact that the first police officer is not wearing a mask, and the second officer was wearing a mask but taking it off when the first officer goes up to talk to him. Although I laughed when seeing the attorney general’s wife wearing a mask when going outside.

One of the protesters points out to the Mrs. that her husband is enforcing the governor’s unlawful orders against peaceful people, and the protester lectures her on how those bureaucrats are threatening peaceful people in their homes and businesses. At about 7 minutes into this second video a protester is discussing with the police officers the illegitimacy of the governor’s orders. The officers seem genuinely interested in what he’s saying. We need more of this.

The protesters sang some corny carols toward the end, given the holiday spirit we are all in now.

For Covid and Election Info, Don’t Take the “News” Media Seriously

So, the fear-mongers in government and their repeaters (known as mainstream “news” media) are continuing to give us the “2nd wave” Covid propaganda, and they claim hospitals are getting overwhelmed.

In the news I keep hearing the latest death toll, 260,000 or whatever it is, “according to Johns Hopkins,” when really the “news” anchors should be saying “according to Bloomberg Johns Hopkins,” etc. (The Johns Hopkins school of “public health” is now called the “Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health”! Yech! And Michael Bloomberg is their big $billion funder, and he’s big on the vaccines that the apparatchiks have been pushing.)

The “news” anchors and reporter-repeaters mainly report the official death count “according to Johns Hopkins,” but they do not seem to do any investigating or ask any challenging questions. Such as how could we keep reporting 260,000 when the CDC states that the real number is 6% of that number. And, should we question the legitimacy of the official death count numbers when the CDC states that we count heart attack deaths and kidney disease deaths as Covid deaths just because the deceased happened to test positive for the coronavirus? And what about the unreliability of the tests themselves, and false positives? What is the false positive rate now, 50 percent? What’s the point?

And Bloomberg Johns Hopkins takes down their own article showing that 2020 deaths in the U.S. are not much more than prior years. What does this mean, “news” reporter-repeaters?

And do the reporter-repeaters actually go into any of the hospitals to see for themselves how overwhelmed the hospitals actually are? Are the patients just coughing and sneezing, or are they gasping for air and choking on their phlegm and mucus because their lungs have too much inflammation and fluid building up (because they aren’t getting enough vitamin D, and/or the foods or medicines they consume are causing inflammation and fluid build-ups, etc.)?

If people aren’t gasping for air and choking on their phlegm and mucus, then they really should stay home and deal with their cold or flu or Covid. I suspect that many of the people who are flooding the hospitals, if they are, are doing so because they have a cold or flu, but, even if they do have Covid they are PANICKING as a result of all the fear-mongering those terrorist government bureaucrats and their media repeaters are inflicting on the masses!

People panic and rush to the hospital when they shouldn’t be doing that, and the incompetent moron “doctors” put them on ventilators that give them more or new problems and kill them. Doh!

The media panic-inciters do not repeatedly tell you that a majority of the people with Covid virus have NO symptoms, and most of those who do have symptoms have mild symptoms, and even if some have serious symptoms, there is still a 99.9% survival rate, which means a death rate equal to that of seasonal flu, .1% to .2%. Stop panicking and acting hysterically!

In the video I posted recently, Peggy Hall mentioned that the swabs that medical practitioners shove up your nostrils actually damage your important part of the sinus passage or brain that controls the sense of smell. And she also asks what is the point in taking that kind of risk with those swab tests when you can just breathe into something to capture whatever “droplets” there might be IF you have the virus. Or you can give them your used mask which should have the “droplets” inside the mask IF you do have the virus. Right?

But we never hear any of these points, or any of the actual truth about death counts from mainstream “news” media, i.e. government media, because most of the reporter-repeaters are just too dumb and/or lazy now to ask any meaningful questions of officials. And if they do ask or if they do independent research with findings that contradict the official narrative they are ousted, fired, banned, censored, ostracized, etc.

Besides possible reactions to the flu vaccine, or overreacting to cold or flu symptoms combined with panic-incitement from “news” reporter-repeaters, people could be making themselves sick with all the disinfectant spray and disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer they’ve been dousing all over themselves or on every goddamn thing in sight and breathing in all those cleaning fumes and chemicals for months now. No wonder people have been swarming the hospitals.

Besides the cleaning fumes, people are also making themselves sick with the useless, ineffective masks, with all the bacteria and other crap accumulated because many people just reuse the same mask. And if they clean it and then reuse the same mask after cleaning it they breathe in those cleaning and soap fumes directly, and if they put it in the laundry they’re breathing in laundry detergent fumes. And making themselves sick that way. Will we see a skyrocketing increase in lung cancer rates in coming months or years?

And seeing all the people around here with the masks on their faces — it’s really upsetting after so many months of this. I keep it up to my chin when I go out and only put it up when I’m on the public transportation or in a store, only to avoid a $1,000 fine or whatever it is, or avoid getting harassed by “Karens.” So far after all these months, when outside with the mask on my chin only one male “Karen” has said anything to me, just “Your mask is slipping,” and of course I didn’t say anything.

All those brainwashed “Karens” out there getting their inner authoritarian brought out by the government and media hysteria, in their newly adopted Covid cult.

Besides the horrible, negative effects on kids’ immune systems that mask-wearing and quarantines are causing, there are the negative psychological effects of this mask wearing, especially on the kids. The little ones especially. How the hell will they be able to develop an ability to recognize people as they grow up? Including their own family members. And all this is in addition to the “delusional psychosis” of the family and neighborhood mask stasi and social distance stasi the bureaucrats and their media lapdogs are inciting and siccing on the people.

The Covid cultists are screwing up another generation of kids with their propaganda, lies and fear-mongering, adding to their already screwing up generations of people with the race-obsession and sexual perversion indoctrination in the government schools, from social media addictions, and bad movies.

The Covid Cult, by the way, is a subset of the general “social justice” cult, in my view.

And then there is the election fiasco. Donald Trump says there was massive fraud and that he actually won the election by a landslide. And that especially in the swing states there were ballot-fabricating and ballot stuffing shenanigans, and voting machine manipulating that resulted in flipping votes from Trump to Biden, and this has been a well-coordinated, well-planned and carried out scheme. And his attorneys supposedly have hundreds of sworn affidavits by witnesses who described seeing coolers-full and suitcases-full of ballots being brought in by cheaters, as well as testifying to being shut out of ballot-counting observing. It supposedly started late election night when it was clear that Trump was winning by a landslide and the vote-counting suddenly stopped because of it, and in multiple states simultaneously, and that is when the hundreds of thousands maybe millions of fraudulent Biden votes were brought in.

But so far they haven’t presented any evidence of it in all the court cases, or the evidence they did bring in wasn’t enough for the judges. Are the judges just saying, regardless of any evidence, we think that it is best to just go forward with the election results as they are, for the good of the country, and get on with it? Or are the judges being threatened by activists, as we heard with the Michigan vote “canvassers” who were threatened if they didn’t certify the election? Or have the judges been blackmailed? Or are they just corrupt judges who hate Donald Trump more than they believe in the truth and justice and fair and honest elections?

And the two Georgia U.S. Senate elections on January 5th don’t matter, and I think that Trump need not campaign down there for the Republicans. They seem to be a lost cause if there really are so many activist groups getting people to move down there, and recruiting people in the state to commit vote fraud, and especially if it’s true that they will be using the Dominion voting machines that apparently have enabled so much cheating in the other “swing” states. The state of Texas rejected using those Dominion voting machines because the machines showed so much vulnerability to fraud and cheating. And it seems also that the Georgia governor and secretary of state, both Rethuglicans, may have been “compromised” (bought off, or threatened, or blackmailed as mentioned above).

If it’s true and the election was corrupted and stolen by the Democrats with millions of flipped votes and fabricated Biden ballots, with evidence galore, and Biden nevertheless is the next “President” as of January 20th, 2021, then there is no reason to view such a presidency as legitimate. (Well, actually no U.S. president has been legitimate, given that his rule has not been with the “consent of the governed,” but that’s for a different discussion.)

As long as we continue to allow mail-in voting (as well as early voting), then none of these elections can be safe and will be illegitimate. This was obviously the reason for the Covid scamdemic, to terrorize the masses into insisting on mail-in voting so they wouldn’t have to go to the polls on election day in person.

If Trump actually succeeds in reversing the election results and wins officially, then we probably will have a lot more rioting, arson and destruction than we have already seen this year, by brainwashed activists who believe that violence is justified. The Covid cultist bureaucrats will condone the rioting and violence and not criticize the rioters for being “super-spreaders” of Covid. The brain-dead “news” media and cable gasbags will call riot critics “racists.”

The Covid Twilight Zone Continues

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo complains that NY sheriffs are saying they won’t enforce his fascist Covid restrictions, including ordering people to keep Thanksgiving gatherings to 10 people, keep face masks on and stay 6 feet apart. Cuoma says that law enforcement officers do not have the authority to pick and choose which laws to enforce.

However, are we really talking about laws? Laws that were actually written and passed by the legislature and signed into law by a governor? Or are we talking about unconstitutional authoritarian edicts imposed by a fascist, i.e. “executive orders”? I think it’s the latter. Law enforcement officers are there to enforce laws (although there are thousands of laws on the books that shouldn’t be enforced, because they themselves are unconstitutional, unjust laws — but that’s for a different discussion), but I don’t think the sheriffs are obligated to enforce a governor’s fascist unconstitutional “executive orders.”

This whole thing is absurd anyway, given that Covid is not serious for MOST of the people who have the virus. A majority of the people who have the virus have no symptoms and they are not sick. (And therefore they do not count as a “case,” so government bureaucrats who are scaring the public with their fear-mongering terrorism about increases in “cases” really need to STFU, in my view.) And most of those who do have symptoms have minor, mild flu-like symptoms and can stay home and take it easy while they get through it, just like the flu or a bad cold. But there is a tiny fraction of those who get the virus who have a harder time with it, mainly because they have serious preexisting conditions like obesity or are already fighting serious illnesses like heart disease or kidney disease. Most of the people who have been dying of this have been already very sick elderly people. Let’s protect them and leave the rest of the population alone.

On a lighter note, the governor of New Jersey, Phil Murky has been the target of people yelling at him with profanities at a restaurant while he was dining out. GOOD! Good for those hecklers!

I heard early this morning Frank Morano on the radio saying he disagreed with the yellers. He thought it was “disgusting.” Well, I disagree with him. If Gov. Murky wants to impose the same kinds of fascist edicts and authoritarian diktats as the aforementioned Cuoma and all the other “liberal” (sic) governors, then they deserve to be yelled at, harassed and more when out in public. Their impositions and restrictions have hurt and sickened millions and millions of people now (in some cases, killed), and it continues. They should be tarred and feathered, and frankly they should be arrested and charged with endangerment and other criminal charges, in their siccing the police on innocent people or fining people i.e. stealing from them, for not wearing an ineffective, useless mask or not staying 6 feet apart from others which is ABSURD!

Those governors of NY and NJ along with the New England states are all a part of the new Eastern Bloc now. Do they emulate the communist societies?

So this whole Twilight Zone better end soon. These people are destroying our society now, and not just economically but they are destroying people’s spirit and joy in life, and for NO GOOD REASON! Jon Rappoport says people need to just get back to their lives and live free. Perhaps some civil disobedience is in order, although it has been for a long, long time.

Biden = Obama 2.0: Warmonger, War Criminal, Anti-Civil Liberties, Anti-Due Process

If Joe Biden really is going to be inaugurated President on January 20th, first I don’t think he will last very long with that Alzheimer’s he obviously has. So, it will probably be a President Kommie-la Harris. And if Biden is President, it will be Obama 2.0, with all the warmongers Biden is taking from the Obama administration to be in top positions.

Daniel Larison updates us on Biden’s pick to be Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, who was Biden’s national security advisor when Biden was VP, and who was also the Deputy Secretary of State under Obomber.

(Blinken) stands by the false argument that Biden’s vote to authorize the invasion of Iraq was a “vote for tough diplomacy.” He was reportedly in favo of the Libyan intervention, which Biden opposed, and he was initially a defender and advocate for U.S. support for the Saudi coalition war on Yemen. In short, Blinken has agreed with some of the biggest foreign policy mistakes (of the Obama administration).

And more.

Winslow Wheeler and Pierre Sprey detail Biden’s pick for Secretary of Defense, Michele Flournoy, Obama’s “Under Secretary of Defense for Policy,” whatever that is, who is also not only a severe warmonger and militarist but one of those revolving door corporatist types.

Keep in mind Flournoy‘s extensive defense industry ties. In 2002 she went from positions in the Pentagon and the National Defense University to the mainstream but hawkish Center for Strategic and International Studies, which is largely funded by industry and Pentagon contributions. Five years later, she co-founded the second-most heavily contractor-funded think tank in Washington, the highly influential Center for a New American Security (CNAS). That became a stepping stone to her role as under secretary of defense for policy in the Obama administration. From there she rotated­­ to the Boston Consulting Group, after which the firm’s military contracts expanded from $1.6 million to $32 million in three years. She also joined the board of Booz Allen Hamilton, a consulting firm laden with defense contracts. In 2017 she co-founded WestExec Advisors, helping defense corporations market their products to the Pentagon and other agencies.

Though WestExec Advisors does not reveal its clients, Flournoy has stated, “Building bridges between Silicon Valley and the U.S. government is really, really important,” even a “labor of love.” WestExec is also careful not to designate Flournoy as a lobbyist, which could run afoul of Biden’s likely prohibitions against appointing “lobbyists” to senior positions. But a WestExec source did tell an interviewer, “We’ll tell you who to go talk to” and what to tell them. This simply circumvents the legalities; it is lobbying by remote control.

And Medea Benjamin and Nicolas Davies had an earlier article on Flournoy, asking, “Will Michele Fournoy be the angel of death for the American Empire?”

And then there is Avril Haines, Obama’s Deputy Director of CIA and Deputy National Security Advisor, who Biden wants to be his Director of National Intelligence (DNI), the position that James Clapper had. Remember him? The DNI is the one that all the other intelligence agency heads report to, including CIA director, FBI and NSA.

Here is what Wikipedia says about Avril Haines:

In 2015 Haines was tasked with determining whether CIA personnel involved in the hacking of the computers of Senate staffers who were authoring the Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA torture would be disciplined. Haines chose not to discipline them, overruling the CIA Inspector General. Subsequently, she was involved in the CIA project of redacting the Senate report for release….

During her years in Obama White House, Haines played a significant role working closely with John Brennan in determining administration policy on “targeted killings” by drones.

Not exactly “Miss Civil Liberties,” that’s for sure.

The New York Times and Washington Post described the Obama targeted drone strike killings, which Obama escalated after Bush, and which Trump has escalated many more times as Obama. Most of the drone strikes kill innocent people, not “terrorists.”

As I wrote in my article in November of 2012,

The program in question is the U.S. President’s assassinations of “terrorists,” or “terrorist supporters,” without due process, and without the President being required to present evidence against the accused.

So really we are talking about suspected terrorists. And worse, most of those who have been murdered overseas by Obama’s drone bombings have been innocent civilians and not actual terrorists [.pdf].

To cover themselves, as noted in the earlier NYT article, the Obama Administration has defined as “militants” (and thus worthy of a U.S. Presidential execution by drone) “all military-age males” who were unfortunate enough to find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.

You see, one reason the writers of the U.S Constitution included a Bill of Rights is to protect the right of all people to due process. That means that, if the government wants to accuse someone of something, such as terrorism, the government is morally, legally and constitutionally obligated to provide evidence against the accused. All people who are accused of something have a right to require the accuser to provide evidence.

But no, when the U.S. government draws up a “Kill List” for those designated foreigners (and Americans too now, as of the Obama administration), and then fires drone strikes at the named individuals, without any due process, without providing evidence against the accused, without a trial, then the government is acting criminally.

What? You didn’t know about the Obama “Kill List”? (I assume Trump has been doing the same thing.)

As I wrote in my aforementioned article,

However, while the Times, the Post and many amongst the MSM act as spokesmen for the Obama Administration’s drone-murder program, there are nevertheless many people who still don’t know about them, about Obama’s “kill list” and Obama’s NDAA provision of indefinite detention of Americans, and so forth. In this video, an interviewer talks to Obama supporters who can’t believe that those policies are Obama’s. And in this video, the same ignorance is shown by a sitting U.S. Congresswoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

And in this video, former Homeland Security Sec. Tom Ridge exemplifies many Americans’ cluelessness about the Obama “kill list,” and their lack of understanding of the meaning of a government program that administers death arbitrarily without any legality or due process.

So, with the militarist warmonger ladies mentioned above in a new Biden administration, it looks like we will see more U.S. government war crimes with drone strikes, foreign invasions and occupations, and provocations of foreigners. Trump hasn’t really deescalated all that, quite frankly.

After Biden’s two weeks tops, President Kommie-la will continue the same anti-civil liberties, anti-due process policies as Bush, Obama, Trump and probably Biden, given Kommie-la’s record as a vicious prosecutor in California.
