ATTORNEYS, POLITICIANS & RON PAUL SUPPORTERS
CROOKS, TRAITORS AND DUPES

By: Nathanael

The re-emergence of a youtube video (Judge Napolitano: Why the Patriot Act is Unconstitutional) highlights the continuing constitutional crisis, abject leadership from the supposed liberty caucus and demonstrated cowardice of the legal class. This particular video (the last half part 3 of 4) is an excerpt from his speech at the 2007 Future of Freedom Foundation conference. The complete speech, titled “Civil Liberties in War Time”, can be viewed here - part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4.  At the beginning, Napolitano describes Ron Paul as “the Thomas Jefferson of our day”. Congressman Paul was in attendance and later delivered his speech that can be watched here part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5 and part 6.   

Within “Why the Patriot Act is Unconstitutional” Napolitano describes some the felonies committed by GWBush/Cheney, then AG Ashcroft and the vast majority of the Congress in passing the USA PATRIOT Act. As stirring as these 5 minutes may be, it is crucial to recognize what he does not say. He conveys incomplete truths and acts on none of them. The substance of Napolitano’s words incontrovertibly subjects himself to immediate prosecution under federal criminal statutes for misprision of felonies and misprision of treason.

Napolitano, all attorneys, Ron Paul, all elected office holders, all law enforcement officers and all of the military have taken oaths of office to uphold, defend and protect the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. Ignorance is no excuse for any of them, but especially for one whose resume includes being:

         A retired Superior Court Justice from the state of New Jersey.

         Author of two books specific to this topic, in 2004 “Constitutional Chaos: What Happens When the Government Breaks its Own Laws” and in 2006 “The Constitution in Exile: How the Federal Government Has Seized Power by Rewriting the Supreme Law of the Land

         Adjunct professor of constitutional law and jurisprudence at Seton Hall University Law School for 11 years and

         Senior judicial analyst on the FAUX News Channel.

Napolitano rightly states that The USA PATRIOT Act does violence to the Fourth Amendment, First Amendment, due process and other inalienable rights of the people enumerated by the Constitution. But, does he tell you that no simple act of Congress can alter the rights of the people? Nope. Does he tell you that only a successful Article V modification procedure can alter the rights of the people? Nope.

At no time does he make any mention that the above two constitutional cornerstones render the USA PATRIOT Act null, void and of no force and affect. Why would this ex-Superior Court Judge from New Jersey, supposed champion of liberty and legal scholar not communicate to that audience and We the People this core information? Go ahead and ask the braying horse directly at Andrew.Napolitano@FOXnews.com or his web site.

Napolitano is obligated (1) under his oath as a judge and still practicing attorney, (2) by his personal knowledge, (3) specific education and training, (4) past work experience and (5) public declarations of these acts to file under the penalty of perjury federal criminal complaints in a court of competent jurisdiction detailing the crimes that have been perpetrated. Until so, he is committing felonies for his inaction. Ron Paul is in similar legal jeopardy.

Unmentioned by the vain-glorious Napolitano, the principals and actors in Congress by their passing and the Executive by his signing of the USA PATRIOT Act at the very least have committed:

Conspiracy to defraud the US
If two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

If, however, the offense, the commission of which is the object of the conspiracy, is a misdemeanor only, the punishment for such conspiracy shall not exceed the maximum punishment provided for such misdemeanor.

Conspiracy against rights
If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or

If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—

They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

Deprivation of rights under the color of law
Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death. 

Misprision of felony
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. 

Misprision of treason
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. 

Rebellion or insurrection
Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States. 

Seditious conspiracy

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both. 

 ... to say nothing of the war crimes committed at Guantanamo Bay, Abu Ghraib and in the Middle East by GWBush under the US Criminal Code, Nuremberg Accords and Geneva Convention.  

During part 4 of his speech, Napolitano describes some of the tyrannical authority allegedly granted to the Executive by Congress in the Military Commission Act of 2006. What the alleged constitutional law professor again fails to illuminate is that Congress has no constitutional authority to grant any new powers to the President and only an Article V modification can do such. On its face the whole of the MCA of 2006 is unlawful, must be ignored and Napolitano stands mute. How can that be?  Gross fiduciary negligence and criminal intent are the only two explanations for his silence.  

The MCA of 2006 is as bad as or worse than the USA PATRIOT Act. Among many reasons is its flagrant violation of Article I, Section 9, and Clause 3 which expressly prohibits the passage of retroactive law.  

No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed. 

“All laws repugnant to the Constitution are void of law.”
Chief Justice John Marshall, Marbury v. Madison (1803)

Napolitano, Ron Paul, members of Ron Paul's legal team (Bruce Fein and Alan Dye) and the supposed liberty minded attorneys/law professors at LewRockwell.com know all of this information. With self-affixed duct tape across their mouths they choose not to inform the People and run from their oath bound responsibilities.

It will only take one national level elected official to break the back of the two-face, single-party criminal enterprise ruining the American republic of republics. RP professed to be that exceptional person who would tell the complete and unvarnished truth, letting the consequences fall as they may.  

Having once been a big RP supporter, reality brought this writer an abrupt wake up call. When it comes to acting on his obligations, Ron Paul talks an appealing game but is no more than an empty suit, a dilettante. His acolytes are no different.
