On The Death Of The Rule Of Law, Part III

01 September 2019 @ 16:43

Over at the American Thinker, Peggy Ryan has posted a righteously angry column on The Death of The Rule Of Law.

She believes that Trumpicus Pompey Maximus has failed in one key area:

President Trump has kept many of his promises, but there’s one still hanging out there.  In the second presidential debate, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton had the following exchange:

Clinton: You know, it’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.

Trump: Because you’d be in jail.

That’s the promise you must keep, Mr. President.  Otherwise, all your accomplishments, the economy, our strong military, our embassy in Jerusalem, the border wall, all will be taken away when the next lawless Hillary steals an election or the next attempt to overthrow our government succeeds.

Exactly.

I don’t know what game he’s playing here in this instance, but The Donald is losing.  Unless, of course, he has given-in to his Proto-Caesarian Impulse.

All of the other accomplishments won’t matter if he fails to Restore The Rule Of Law.  As I wrote many times during The Age Of Obama: The Rule Of Law has been replaced by The Rule Of Men and we are, therefore subject to The Rule Of Whim, where there are no fixed standards that allow for Ordered Liberty to exist.

The enforcement of The Law is now Arbitrary and, as Jeff Goldstein wrote:

Arbitrary law brings with it the necessity of police state, because to enforce unequal law one must rely on oppression. On tyranny….

A Constitutional Republic can only survive if everyone is equally subject to the Enforcement Of The Law.

As I wrote in 2015:

A Society without set and widely understood and collectively accepted Codes Of Conduct is one where Liberty Without License rules and everyone lives subject to all forms of Terrorism.

The Founding Fathers understood this and worked towards providing us with Freedom and Ordered Liberty.

Part of achieving that end was to see that The Rule Of Law reigned over everything and that the people were not subjected to, nor permitted to succeed in imposing easily, a Rule Of Whim.

This kind of government is not perfect, but we have never seen the open-flaunting of it that we see now, not even in the Unstable Rebellious Years before The Civil War.

As Peggy Ryan writes:

Sean Hannity tells us every night that Spygate will explode with declassification, with the I.G. report, or with Durham’s investigation.  Sean’s Fox team of experts agree: the traitors are shaking in their boots because they know what’s coming.

Really?  Because I don’t see a single traitor twitching, much less shaking.  In fact, they’ve stepped up their sedition, increased their efforts to usurp the president.  If they’re scared, they’re doing a bang-up job of hiding it.

Today, treason and our two-tier justice system are casually discussed as inescapable facts of today’s political landscape.  Heads up for those desperately trying to put the blindfold back on Lady Justice.  If a layered legal system is what we have, it has nothing to do with justice — that’s anarchy.  And these smug criminals not only revel in their immunity, but rub our noses in it.

…we have that pathetic excuse for a human being, James Comey, gloating over the I.G. report that issued a verbal slap on the wrist for his infractions.

Comey: “And to all those who’ve spent two years talking about me ‘going to jail’ or being a ‘liar and a leaker’ — ask yourselves why you still trust people who gave you bad info for so long, including the president.”

But no worries: Comey will pay when the FISA abuse report comes out.

Or not: Washington insiders are now foreshadowing immunity for the entire cabal, saying that, “sadly,” these lawbreakers probably won’t be prosecuted.  That’s not sad; it’s terrifying.  If we can’t indict and prosecute these clowns who have conspired to overthrow our government, who have committed the most egregious political crime in history, then stick a fork in our Republic.  We’re done.

The Republic died in 2010, PR, when Obamacare was signed into law and we lost Sovereignty over our own bodies, but, whichever event you choose, the fork is appropriate.

As PR comments:

“The check’s in the mail” is a promise that payment’s been sent even if it hasn’t.  It’s a stalling tactic to avoid pressure from creditors, from those expecting payment.

That’s the scam our government is running on the American people today, a ruse to tamp down expectations of justice.  We all know that the FBI used an unverifiable document, the Steele dossier, to get a warrant to spy on Trump using the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).  This dossier was used to start a counterintelligence operation to plant spies in Trump’s campaign, to get a special counsel to impeach the president.

We’re repeatedly told by reliable sources that these crimes won’t go unpunished — “justice is coming,” “buckle up!,” “tick tock,” “BOOM!”  The DOJ is about to drop the hammer on the bad guys.  Yet after two years of this drama, not a single indictment or prosecution[.]

And people like Sean Hannity and Laura Ingram are Providing Aid And Comfort to The Enemy by their relentless attempts to get our Hopes up.

Face it: The Rule Of Law is Effectively Dead.

such a Chaotic situation is ripe for those determined to seize Power And Control to succeed, the result being the vast majority of the people in the Society are Enslaved. As Samuel Adams wrote: ‘for if the public are bound to yield obedience to the laws, to which they cannot give their approbation, they are slaves to those who make such laws and enforce them’ [writing as ‘CANDIDUS’, 20 January 1772].

Well…

I know not what course others may take, but as for me:
I will not be a slave; I will either Live Free Or Die.
