Justice for Justina Pelletier

Lou Pelletier and wife

What is happening to the United States of America?  What is happening to our Republic?  I remember a famous quote made by Benjamin Franklin when asked by a citizen, “what kind of nation have you given us?” to which he replied, “a Republic, madam, if you can keep it!”.

Our Republic, founded on the ideals of liberty and justice for all, has become liberty and justice for the chosen few but peasant obedience for We the People.  The legislative branches of both state and federal government no longer listen to Justina Pelletier 1nor do they represent the Constitution or the very people they pledge to “SERVE!!!!!!”.  The executive branches at both levels pretty much do as they please, forget all the limits imposed by the Constitution, and don’t dare to mention all the promises they made to get elected in the first place.  The judicial branch, our system of justice has turned into the system of legalities that can be changed, bought, and ignored on the whim of any judge or politician.

For 12 months a teen girl has been held hostage in Boston Childrens Hospital, kept away from her parents, kept away from the doctor she was sent there to be attended to by, kept away from the doctor who originally diagnosed her illness and sent her to Boston to see this specialist so she can have better care.  Her name is Justina Pelletier.   Today she is being transferred to a different facility but her parents are still not allowed to attend to her.  This transfer is the equivalent of Bill Clinton’s “depends on what your definition of ‘is’ is”!!!!! Different building but controlled by the same people.  That isn’t “change you can believe in”!!!!!

Her medical condition has steadily gone downhill while at Boston General Hospital.  Her parents and their lawyers are under a gag order but, facing the eminent death of his daughter, he violated that order and has spoken out.  Just a side-bar, but why should these people not be free to speak about the situation?  What are the bureaucrats hiding?  Now the father could face jail time for contempt of court for speaking out in a desperate attempt to save his daughter’s life.

The parents are nearly broke from the expense of this, not to mention the mental despair and heartbreak they are experiencing.  How is it that a bureaucracy can do this to people without any recourse?  This morning the father was talking about the day one of the physicians came in to see Justina in a hospital room and a social worker came in and physically dragged him out of the room saying he had no right to see her.  He had only been treating her for something like 2 years!!!!

The governors of Massachusetts and Connecticut can put a stop to this.  So can the Attorneys General of either state, but they won’t.  No elected official anywhere will give these people the time of day when they are being essentially persecuted by a bureaucratic system that doesn’t care about the rights of those they have subjected to what I see as mental and financial torture, for no better reason than I can see but their own lust for power over WE the People.  The politicians once again stand behind the bureaucrats instead of We the People.

How often do you now read or hear about local police departments killing citizens either “by mistake” or from just downright Gestapo and SS tactics from Nazi Germany.  Rarely is there any punishment meted out to the police who commit these Nazi style terror attacks.  Just like they treated the Jews isn’t it, except it isn’t European Jews this time!!!!!  Now we have medical people performing essentially the same tasks.  Cops can arrest a person for asking a question they don’t like and hospitals can just take control of children without justification, to do as they wish medically; including experimenting, ala Dr. Mengele.

What are the people in that hospital doing to that girl that has to be hidden from the parents and doctors who have treated her, and her sister, for years?  What are they doing that makes a court ordered “gag order” necessary?????  Why does a judge stand on the side of tyranny, forbidding a person the right to speak on any issue, especially one concerningJustina-Pelletier 2 their own child?  Why are these blatant violations of the rights of citizens ignored by officials elected on the promise to uphold the rights of WE the People?????  More of the “your children belong to the state” mentality?????

What they are doing to this family is WRONG!!!!! If the bureaucratic system can do this to them what is to keep them from doing it to you?????  All of us need to stand up for this family, and in so doing we stand up for our way of life and our own liberty.  If someone had snatched this girl from her front yard, even if doing so “for her own good”, it would be called kidnapping and would be a federal offense resulting in many years in prison.  But because it is an entity backed by the political system it is just fine and dandy?????

The situation with the Pelletier family isn’t a aberration, it is all too common today.  They are being subjected to Nazi style treatment from a government that is supposed to be based on the rights of the citizens.  WE come first not the government or their bureaucratic drones.  Well, that is how it is supposed to be but how often do we see that today?  Those in control are spitting in the eye of the nation, and spitting on the Constitution and the God given rights guaranteed by said document.

Contact the governors, and Attorneys General of these states and let them know that you will not be silenced.  We the People need to fight this fight with the Pelletier family.  They can’t do it alone and neither can you or I.  We are in this together, all of us.  Every time a citizen is treated as the Pelletier family is treated We the People need to rise up and let them know we will not tolerate it.

We have bowed to the pressure of bureaucratic tyrants long enough.  This is one way to force them to bow to the real power in the nation, We the People.  WE either exercise that power or we forfeit it to the tyrants.  The choice is yours!!!!!

Crony-Capitalism Is As Phony As African-American

It seems the expression of the day now, the new “gravitas”, in referring to our political/economic system is “crony-capitalism”. This term is such a misnomer that it almost defies explanation. I looked up capitalism in Webster’s Dictionary and the term cannot possibly be partnered with the word “crony”. According to Webster, capitalism is defined as:

Capitalism: an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market.

Cronyism is defined as:

Cronyism; partiality to cronies especially as evidenced in the appointment of political hangers-on to office without regard to their qualifications.

How can one possibly put these two words together to describe our economic system? The two terms do not go together in any fashion, other than to make some pundit sound smart to those who don’t understand our economic and political systems.

A more correct term for our current political/economic system would be fascism. I also looked up fascism to get an accurate definition. According to Webster, fascism is:

Fascism: a political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition: A tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control.

When I look at what the government is doing to our economic system today fascism seems to be a much more appropriate term. Look at the bailouts, TARP, Stimulus, and all the other government plans to pick winners and losers. In the auto industry bondholders took a beating while Democrat Party/Obama supporting unions made millions. The American taxpayer also took a bath in this little escapade. The banks and Wall Street firms are in the same category.

Those who support the entrenched government establishment of both political parties came out with billions of taxpayer money while those paying the bill, taxpaying citizens, got the shaft in a huge way. Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac took tens of millions of dollars in “golden parachutes” into Wall Street with them. The executives at the big Wall Street firms and the biggest banks in the world reaped hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars in bonuses with the bailouts of the “too big to fail” scam foisted on We the People.

And then we have Queen Michelle running around with her “Lunchroom Gestapo”, inspecting the lunches of children. Turkey from home is unhealthy. Here, school child, take these fat filled, processed chicken nuggets instead. Oh, and we can’t buy the king size candy bars any more because we aren’t smart enough to figure out what is in our best nutritional interests so Queen Michelle extorted Mars Candy Company to insure the king sized bars are no longer available. And let’s feed the school kids a third meal at school because those obese wrecks of children are being starved to death because they aren’t being fed at home. Am I the only one who sees starving obese children being a bit of an oxymoron?

This is not capitalism, it is fascism. Crony fascism seems to be the proper term for our current political/economic system. We find the government, Barack Obama through his czars/cronies, running everything in this nation by fiat. Bureaucrats not approved by the Senate as provided for in the Constitution (Article II, Section 2, Paragraph 2) make rules and regulations every day with no regard for the Constitution, the rule of law, or what is in the best interests of this nation and the citizens of this nation as a whole. As they do this the Republicans in Congress sit on their hands and do nothing to stop it. And why would they? George W. Bush and the current crop of Republicans are in this up to their ears. How can they complain when many of them were the actual authors of much of what has happened to our economic system over the last 10 years?

The United States of America is no longer a Republic. It is now a dictatorial oligarchy, ala Venezuela, ruled by Barack Obama and his czars with the complicit neglect of the Republican leadership in Congress. Members of Congress and various bureaucrats make millions by using insider trading advantages that are against the law for anyone outside of government to use. Our once vaunted capitalistic system is so rife with fascist corruption that it no longer resembles the system put in place by our founding fathers.

Politicians have so totally corrupted the system that it is questionable if capitalism can be revived. Unfortunately, most politicians seem to have no desire to revive our capitalistic system, nor the Constitution that brought it into existence. They are satisfied to enrich themselves and their cronies at the expense of We the People. When politicians and bureaucrats rule by fiat we no longer have a capitalistic system nor do we have a Constitutional system.

In Hitler’s Germany factories were run by private companies but they were controlled by the government in every aspect of business. This is where we find our nation’s industries and businesses today. Nothing can be done without the permission of some czar, bureaucrat, or judge. Every aspect of life is controlled from Washington D. C. If this doesn’t change soon future generations will not know any vestige of the freedom I grew up with.

The term African-American is a contrived term used to divide us by race, create a fake “oppressed minority”, and give preferential treatment to a group of people who don’t deserve it. Capital-Cronyism, in comparison, is a term used to create a fake economic system, disguise the true state of affairs in our business world, and create the illusion that we still operate under the system of business installed by our founding fathers. If people heard the word fascism used every day instead of “crony-capitalism” we would see an uprising of major proportions because there are still enough of us alive who understand the meaning of the term fascism to create discontent with government interference in the economic well-being of our nation.

We the People are being inundated with phony terms created by tyrants to subvert the Constitution and to subjugate the citizens without us realizing we are being enslaved. It is sad but so many people are either not intelligent enough to see what is happening, don’t care, or think that if they ignore what is happening that it isn’t real. One day soon these people will wake up and wonder where their freedom went. I can tell them where it went. Freedom went out the door of apathy, cowardice, or ignorance.

About the Conduct of Our Soldiers and Marines in Afghanistan

I am submitting this in response to the comments about the Marines who were video taped pissing on dead Taliban members. This is a post I first wrote on the original Patriot Action Network site on October 19, 2010 at 3:40 a.m. It was originally addressed to some who criticized me and others for advocating working through the political system to solve our political problems. They were calling me and others names because we were, and are, working hard to prevent a war here in America. Although written for a different subject matter then, it is very appropriate in the context of the story of our Marines pissing on dead Taliban.

This is addressed to anyone who feels they have a right to criticize our military people fighting the battles day in and day out, and especially directed to the lame politicians and bureaucrats in Washington D. C.

I am writing this in response to Gerald, Gary, Jaymes, and others of like mind. You posted comments that denigrate the attitudes of me and Dave Ruhoff about our ideas of using peaceful means to take our country back from the leftists who now run our government. I don’t know any of you and never saw your names before this discussion. I have some thoughts for you in regards to your comments about “sunshine patriots” and “collaborators”. If anyone has a weak stomach do not read this. It is not vulgar but is rather graphic to make a point I think is very important to those who think violence is the answer to our woes. If you have ever been in combat you should be ashamed of yourselves. If not, you shouldn’t be spouting the way you did. I went to bed but could not sleep and hope that expressing my thoughts will clear my head and allow me to sleep, and at the same time, give some of you something to reflect upon.

Before thinking ill of us, go enlist in the Army or Marine Corp. Volunteer for combat as an infantry soldier. Spend a couple of years in the mountains of Afghanistan. Spend every day with the threat of death at your elbow. Take that 100 pound rucksack and carry it until your shoulders ache from the load. Walk until you hips, legs, ankles, and feet cry out in pain. Go until you think you can’t walk any more and then keep on going. Go experience the freezing cold, the snow, the rain, the mud. Volunteer to be the point man. Walk along terrain that is so slippery you can barely sand up. And while you are doing this, be on constant alert for snipers, booby traps, or the ambush waiting around the next bend, past the next tree, or past the next boulder. Watch a 180 degree arc side to side and from ground level to the tops of trees, rocks, ridges, etc. for the ambush that could come at any second without warning, just the sudden burst from a grenade, mortar, RPG, or machine gun. Watch east step you take because the rock you kick might have a live grenade under it, or a trip wire, waiting for some poor unsuspecting grunt to kick it and have his legs blown off, or worse.

Lay there at night among the rocks, too tired and scared to sleep, every noise you hear being the chance of an enemy sneaking up to slit your throat. Experience the ambush, bullets tearing the ground around you. See the guy next to you get hit and feel his blood splatter all over you. Feel the relief, and the guilt, when your first thought is “I am okay, thank God it wasn’t me” as he lays there bleeding to death because you can’t quite firing long enough to help him as you are outnumbered 50-1.

Experience the fear of hand to hand combat, you with your knife and the enemy with his. Feel the pain as his knife slashes at your body. Feel your knife plunge into his sternum or stomach and the sensation as it stops when the hilt hits and his blood begins to run along your hand. Or hear the hissing of an enemy hand grenade a split second before it explodes, hurling hot metal into your body and the concussion knocking you to the ground. Feel the pain and fear as you lay there, semi-conscious and unable to defend yourself as enemy soldiers run past you, hoping they don’t stick you with a bayonet or pump a few rounds into you for good measure.

Or feel the sensation of being shot, the hot flash of pain and the feeling of being hit by a baseball bat swung by a Major League slugger. Live like this day in and day out for a year or two. Then come talk to me about “sunshine patriots”. Then come talk to me about “collaborators”. Then come talk to me about “weak willed people only willing to write letters or vote”.

Before judging people like Dave and me, walk a mile in my shoes and see if you can come up with a better plan. See if you can understand why pounding the pavement to get out the vote and writing letters to elected officials to get your point across and accomplish your goals is acceptable. My apologies to those who find this disturbing. My goal here is to; hopefully, give those who are looking for a war something to think about. How about we try it my way? America is worth it to me.

God Bless America.
