Did the Consitution DIE without a WHIMPER?
Long before Edward Snowden became the snitch of the century the Constitution was under attack and was successfully modified to eliminate personal freedoms. Post 9/11, the Patriot Act was written well in advance of the “terror” attack on the USA. To see it, was to marvel at a stack of paper over ten inches high. Below you can familiarize yourself with the subversion of the Bill of Rights.
|US Constitution||Patriot Act|
|Amendment IV: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.||Freedom from unreasonable searches: The government may search and seize Americans' papers and effects without probable cause to assist terror investigation.|
|Amendment VI: In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.||Right to a speedy and public trial: The government may jail Americans indefinitely without a trial.|
|Amendment I: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble,||Freedom of association: To assist terror investigation, the government may monitor religious and political institutions without suspecting criminal activity.|
|Amendment VI: ... to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.||Right to legal representation: The government may monitor conversations between attorneys and clients in federal prisons and deny lawyers to Americans accused of crimes.|
|Amendment I: Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech||Freedom of speech: The government may prosecute librarians or keepers of any other records if they tell anyone the government subpoenaed information related to a terror investigation.|
|Amendment VI: ... to be confronted with the witnesses against him ...||Right to liberty: Americans may be jailed without being charged or being able to confront witnesses against them. US citizens (labeled "unlawful combatants") have been held incommunicado and refused attorneys.|
We do live in a society where some people are a threat to the safety of others. To say the subversion of the Constitution was not necessary is arguable. How could we allow the Constitution to protect a person who has malicious intent to innocent people? Without checks and balances this power the Government yields will be abused and without oversight it will flourish. This is the problem with the Patriot Act and now the NSA.
Now Edward Snowden has revealed we are all under electronic automated surveillance from the NSA. Meaning there is potential evidence being collected on all of us. Nothing we do is private and we have no idea when we have been deemed a threat to National security. In the early days of my research I learned of a rumored super computer in Belgium called “The Beast” and it was designed to store electronic data on everybody on the earth. It was 1993 when I learned of this rumored IBM constructed super computer.
The average American will care about none of these facts until they or their family is affected. By then it will be too late. You will be detained indefinitely without a legal representation or a trial. I can only think of the Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle movie where they are detained and made to eat a “cock-meat” sandwich. The founding fathers designed the Bill of Rights to balance/limit the power of the Government and protect the people.
The line between Government and the people has been erased and we are now the Government’s people. We have lost our voice and are freedom. If you follow Bible prophecy you should not be surprised because all of this was prophesied in the Book of Daniel. The Constitution had to be destroyed in order to create the New World Order’s ” One World Government and as we are entertained by the news, it is growing like a virus daily.
New King James Version (NKJV)
16 I came near to one of those who stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me and made known to me the interpretation of these things: 17 ‘Those great beasts, which are four, are four kings[a] which arise out of the earth. 18 But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.’
19 “Then I wished to know the truth about the fourth beast, which was different from all the others, exceedingly dreadful, with its teeth of iron and its nails of bronze, which devoured, broke in pieces, and trampled the residue with its feet; 20 and the ten horns that were on its head, and the other horn which came up, before which three fell, namely, that horn which had eyes and a mouth which spoke pompous words, whose appearance was greater than his fellows.
21 “I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, 22 until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.
23 “Thus he said:
‘The fourth beast shall be
A fourth kingdom on earth,
Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
And shall devour the whole earth,
Trample it and break it in pieces.
24 The ten horns are ten kings
Who shall arise from this kingdom.
And another shall rise after them;
He shall be different from the first ones,
And shall subdue three kings.
I honestly believe there is nothing to change this course except supernatural intervention. We better hope we are saved by the Second Coming because as a people we have been anesthetized by fast food, entertainment, and false prophets. During the 1960s the black church movement was the cornerstone of political change. The church knew they had to apply spiritual laws to effect change in the physical realm and the results were Civil Rights. Let me ask you this — are any of these television preachers influencing you to effect political change while your Bill of Rights are being destroyed?
