Gordon Duff Calls For Immediate Arrest of 5 Supreme Court Justices for Treason

THE FIVE THAT STAND AGAINST ALL AMERICANS, THE "MAFIA" JUDGES

Constitution in flames

By Gordon Duff

Five members of the Supreme Court declared that a “corporation” is a person, not a “regular person” but one above all natural laws, subject to no God, no moral code but one with unlimited power over our lives, a power awarded by judges who seem themselves as grand inquisitors empowered meant to hunt down all heretics who fail to serve their god, the god of money.

Their ruling has made it legal for foreign controlled corporations to flush unlimited money into our bloated political system to further corrupt something none of us trust and most of us fear.  The “corporation/person” that the 5 judges, the “neocon” purists, have turned the United States over to isn’t even American.  Our corporations, especially since our economic meltdown are owned by China, Russia and the oil sheiks along with a few foreign banks.  They don’t vote, pay taxes, fight in wars, need dental care, breathe air, drive cars or send children to school.  Anyone who thinks these things are people is insane.  Anyone who would sell our government to them is a criminal and belongs in prison.  There is nothing in the Constitution that makes this “gang of five” bribe sucking clowns above the law.  There is nothing in the Constitution that even mentions corporations much less gives them status equal to or greater than the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government.

The Supreme Court of the United States has no right to breathe human life into investment groups owned by terrorist sympathizers, foreign arms dealers or groups working for the downfall of the United States and everything we believe in, but 5 “justices” have done just that.  We now have a new government above our government, above our people, one above any law.   Five judges have created institutionalized gangsterism as the new form of government for the United States.

No American soldier can ever go to war fighting for a Chinese hedge fund, a German bank or a Saudi Arabian fertilizer company.  Will our new debates in Congress be between members representing the opium warlords against the Columbian cartels?  Their cash, which long ago has infiltrated one major corporation or bank after another is now heading for your local representative.   How important do you think secure borders for America are for these new political “influencers?”

For years we complained about AIPAC, the Sierra Club, the NRA, trial lawyers, trade unions, NAM (National Association of Manufacturers) and the churches that got involved in politics.  Behind all of these were people, American citizens, and, on some occasions, Americans who fought for their country, raised kids here and were invested in the survival of America although they didn’t always act that way.  This was an American problem.  Now we aren’t even sure we have an America anymore.

Anyone who believes that a massive flood of corporate money into politics won’t throw control of both houses of Congress into the hands of the wealthy nations that are also our primary strategic enemies, you know the ones, the ones loaded with oil cash, the ones with 10 cent an hour labor and legal systems that  shoot first and ask questions later.  They just were told they can buy the United States, not just our government, but our military, and the lives of our soldiers.  They can now make our laws, raise our taxes, decide on our civil rights, where we can live, if we can own guns, how late we stay up, where and what we drive and, eventually, how we think.  The Supreme Court has given foreign owned corporations the eventual power to silence us all.

When a corporation commits a crime, nobody goes to jail.  When wars come, they don’t fight, they simply rake in cash.  When children are poisoned or workers are killed, they seldom even pay a fine.  However, when they want something, billions in tax money for “bail outs” or fat contracts or special laws, they have always gotten it.  It  has been a battle to control corporations for 140 years.  Sometimes the American people have lost, sometimes they have won.  Our greatest presidents are the ones who reined in corporate power and kept the influence of money over humanity in check.  Think of Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower and John Kennedy.

Without them we would be living in work camps, stuck at machines all day, our children at our sides.  We would be paid in beans and salt pork, dying at 40 in filth like people around the world who live in countries controlled by corporations.

Based on the justices that we want prosecuted being Reagan/Bush “conservatives” you would think this is a liberal/conservative issue.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Nothing less “conservative” has ever been done by a branch of our government.  There is nothing “conservative” about our Supreme Court going insane and abandoning our Constitution and making medical decisions, not to give life to a fetus, but to a bank account.

This is nothing but an extremely unAmerican and unpatriotic group of thieves believing that Americans had given up so many of their civil liberties in silence during the Global War on Terror scam that opening the “Pandora’s Box” of class conflict could now be done with nobody saying a word.  Their “corporate person” is now a Baron or Duke, the great landlords of the medieval period.  Americans are now destined for serfdom.  Their political and economic theories, what are they?  Is it conservatism or feudalism?

We are already burdened with a representative government that has tied itself to the money spigot because of the incredible cost of media exposure in campaigns.  People running for office in ancient Rome would purchase thousands of animals for slaughter in the arena.  Mass executions were staged as media events for political campaigns.  In fact, the arenas in every Roman city were built for that purpose, today replaced by television and the internet.  We thought we had changed since that time.  We were wrong.

The framers of the Constitution created the Supreme Court, the Electoral College and originally had Senators appointed, not elected, to protect the wealthy from having their money and land seized by the masses who would otherwise have controlled the government.  This was the 1780s.  The only “democracy” we knew about was ancient Athens, where the majority of the people living there were slaves.    27 Amendments later, including the Bill of Rights, we have worked to define justice and decency.  Generations have fought and died to keep life in our imperfect system from 1780.  Who would have thought that 5 people could destroy it all?

Political debate in America is sometimes extreme, often bordering on violence.  Feelings are high.  How many times have you heard people threaten to leave the country because “their America” no longer exists.  We know that few really mean it.  When faced with a real threat, no people on earth are to be feared like Americans.  When help is needed, no people on earth are to be trusted and relied on like Americans.  This is the pride we have in our country and ourselves.  We never agree on anything.  We aren’t supposed to, we are Americans.

Everything we built has been based on a balance, race, religion, ethnicity, social standing, political beliefs, regional interests, all striving and compromising to build something we are all secretly very proud of, something all of us are willing to fight for and many are.  Americans all agree on one thing, that our government in Washington is out of control and has been for some time.  We all have different ideas on this but agree on the fact itself.  We wonder where the politicians come from, men too often “less great” than those of the past, in fact, less great than average.  Decisions are continually made that most find puzzling and, in fact, are driven by a rotten underbelly of corruption and self interest.

Now, 5 members of the Supreme Court, people none of us voted for, a group that is answerable to no authority and, seemingly, no law or moral code, a group famous for immoderation, poor judgement and low personal integrity has, either through blindness, avarice or insanity clearly done something so malicious, so unjust and so utterly inconsistent with our Constitution that they, themselves, have become an “enemy of the people.”

What is their power?  What they have done is not within the scope of the authority given through the Constitution.  Their acts are outside the law, their acts are those of a conspiracy, their acts are meant to diminish our freedoms, our sacred institutions and even endanger our lives.  Typically, such acts are called crimes and those who commit them are criminals.

What could drive judges, albeit judges appointed with little thought as part of a cheap political ploy, to abandon any American constituency?  Corporations have no religion.  They care nothing for the unborn.  They have no allegiance to a flag, a family or any moral ethic.  They serve no person, owe no loyalty other that to stockholders, shadowy groups of Russian oligarchs, Chinese banks, corrupt dictators grown fat on the spoils of their people or the international consortium’s of bond and currency speculators who have, for decades, abandoned any economic law to build the ethereal “house of cards” we call the “world economy.”

The control of the American electoral process has been given to them.  No serving politician can survive now standing against them.  Years ago “they” bought our newspapers and our television networks.  Fact and truth became whatever they wanted us to believe.  “They” gained control of what many thought and what almost all of us see and hear.  That wasn’t enough.  They wanted it all.  As their control has grown, so has terrorism, continual war, economic poverty for millions Americans and insensitivity to justice and humanity.  Who would expect anything else from a corporation with no blood, no heart and no face?

The Founding Fathers led America on the path to freedom and eventual democracy.  The Federalists limited the ability of an impetuous electorate to seize power and “reform” America into chaos and anarchy.  This system of government was predicated on the belief that love of country would always burn brightly in America and with progress, freedom and bounty was the inevitable reward of our industry.  It is only now too obvious that so much has happened that was unforeseen.  It is not a denial of our traditions to correct wrongs when we find them.  This was how America was created.  We are drowning in wrongs, we all finally agree on this.

The time is now.  Party politics have failed.  Political theories are little more than empty rhetoric meant to mislead and misinform.  State has become church and church has become state.  State is less just and church less godly.  All we have left is “we, the People.”  This is how we began and it is now all we have to move forward.  It is time for the states to call for a Constitutional Convention to establish, not just a Republic, but a Democracy, by and for the people, the American people, rich and poor, a nation loyal to itself, not tied to corporations, a vast military industrial complex or endless foreign alliances.

If it is to be a genuinely conservative nation, one with individual freedoms, a small government, fewer taxes and more opportunity, a nation as intended, then we will all have to live with it.  The bloated corpse we are creating in Washington is emitting a stench we can no longer abide.  We will be saying goodbye to our Supreme Court, our seniority system in Congress and our political machines pretending to be “parties”  and hello to paper ballots, a free press, term limits and the ability to yank a scoundrel out of office when we catch one.

    Should films and commercials aimed at a candidate airing within 30 days of a primary election be illegal; yes or no?

    • Gordon Duff  January 29, 2010 at 7:31 pm

      Madison was a Federalist. The “Federalist Society”…an extreme right wing group presents Madison as primary author of the Constitution. However, detailed research by historian Charles A Beard debunked that long ago.

      “In the tenth number of The Federalist, Mr. Madison argued in a philosophic vein in support of the proposition that it was necessary to base the political system on the actual conditions of “natural inequality.” Uniformity of interests throughout the state, he contended, was impossible on account of the diversity in the faculties of men, from which the rights of property originated; the protection of these faculties was the first object of government; from the protection of different and unequal faculties of acquiring property the possession of different degrees and kinds of property immediately resulted; from the influence of these on the sentiments and views of the respective proprietors ensued a division of society into different interests and parties; the unequal distribution of wealth inevitably led to a clash of interests in which the majority was liable to carry out its policies at the expense of the minority; hence, he added, in concluding this splendid piece of logic, “the majority, having such coexistent passion or interest, must be rendered by their number and local situation unable to concert and carry into effect schemes of oppression”; and in his opinion, it was the great merit of the newly framed Constitution that it secured the rights of the minority against “the superior force of an interested and overbearing majority.”

      Madison contended strongly that a democratic electorate had to remain subserviant to those of “superior breeding” and financial capability.

      The current failure of our government can be traced to those influences. Though Madison was framer of the Virginia Plan, crediting him for the Constitution, a document that had no Bill of Rights and lacked the 27 Ammendments it now has, is not a kindness.

    • JMo  January 29, 2010 at 8:26 pm

      Even Madison hated the title Father of the Constitution. It was obviously the work of many men, although he was the one crafted the initial draft, which was changed heavily.

      But, should films and commercials aimed at a candidate airing within 30 days of a primary election be illegal; yes or no?

  2. JMo  January 29, 2010 at 7:13 pm

    Madison is referred to as the “Father of the Constitution”. He was the principal author of the document.

    Are you not going to answer the question on the case at hand? Did you even read the decision?

    I noticed you didn’t write about any details regarding the case.

  5. Mari Carroll  January 28, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    Mr. Duff,

    I am horrified that a U.S. veteran would voice this opinion about the recent ruling by the Supreme Court. You are very misinformed and do the Justices, the Constitution and U.S. citizens a disservice. The decision upheld the First Amendment and freedom of speech. I hope you and your readers will read this article for your edification. http://www.cato.org/pub_display.php?pub_id=11159

    • Gordon Duff  January 28, 2010 at 5:49 pm

      I am horrified that someone would be so utterly unfamiliar with our Constitution and the obvious antiAmerican bias of the Cato Insititute to attempt to foist such unsound and unfounded blither on anyone.

      Our constitution has nothing regarding allowing foreign dictators to form corporations and buy power in our government.

      If yours does, perhaps you might want to rethink who, exactly, you believe you are loyal to.

  6. ann  January 28, 2010 at 2:04 pm

    I agree with you vehemently. For God’s sake, I hope a coporation is not a person

    We need a concerted effort to fight this. I believe you can call the supreme court at 202-479-3000 and EXPRESS YOUR DISPLEASURE AND FEAR OF THIS DECISION.

  7. R Harris  January 27, 2010 at 10:45 pm

    In a sense you are all correct. This is about communism. I know its an ugly word and no one believes it, but trust me. I am also a veteran and I have been around the world twice. The Financial structure today in the banking system mixed with government is that of a communist society.Yes we have capitalism in the stock market, but we are ruled by a communist regime. before you slam me go read about the financial communist system and then read how the fed takes its cut.. then come back and tell me it isnt a communist financial system.

  8. Igby Mac  January 27, 2010 at 1:29 am

    Sorry to read you are just getting upset about this injustice now.

    I have been saying it repeatedly for decades — representative democracy of the people is for the people’s interests; people are the ONLY stakeholders in the game; only these stakeholders should be able to finance political parties or politicians; due to the fiscal imbalance between these stakeholders, the contribution should be limited to something within everyone’s grasp, like $100 maximum. This way the people influence the outcome of the election, and the politicians must garner favour from the people. It really is that simple.

    Then again, the wealthy elite are never going to let us shmucks vote away their land/money/influence.

  9. Pharme124  January 26, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    Very nice site!

  10. George W Krauss  January 26, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    Calling for a Constitutional Convention would be the worst thing to do. The first one turned out to be a run-a-way convention. Fortunately,it ended up for our good. Convening a 2nd one would leave too many open doors for a elitepower grab and after it convened whom ever was in the strongest position would decide just what was done..PERIOD. Another run-a-way convention would run the same risks and with today’s politics and corruption it would be most likely total destruction of the U.S. Constitution. I have already seen the proposed constitution of the New States-it is not good, there wouldn’t be any need of a Supreme Court as all our rights would have been thrown out the window and would usher the NWO right into our homes like it or not.

    NO!!! we must fight for our states rights at the state level and fight to defend ourselves if we are forced into doing so as the Federal Government or even the Supreme Courts did not form the states – the states formed the federal government-the states are sovereign. Does anyone fathom how many artmed citizens we have in the U.S. right now. They,at last count outnumber the weaponry of all the military branches added together. It had to be so since this Government has failed its duty and sold what wasn’t theirs to sell. They are guilty of sedition and subsequently treason.

    • Gordon Duff  January 29, 2010 at 3:22 pm

      We allowed 3000 Americans to be murdered on 9/11. We accepted childish lies as answers. Then we allowed 5000 more to be murdered and we knew it was lies. The “crazy” Mafia of the Supreme Court gave us the maniac and his cabal of mass murderers. The corporate press, defense lobby and AIPAC guided them along.

      Now we are a pitiful debtor nation with no future.

      It isn’t just the government, it is the cowards among us who shill for the criminal element.

      Pick a side.

Please read it and offer the article to those replying to this article to see the bright light concerning removing the SC justices. http://www.newswithviews.com/Spingola/deanna111.htm

    It’s been here for a while now, but the Supreme Court made it official. We live in a fascist country. It’s hard to admit, but it’s true.

    The time of reckoning has come and we are starting to take our country back. I am 23 years old and I know my generation is not going to put up with this. We are slowly but surely getting organized!

    • Gordon Duff  January 28, 2010 at 5:51 pm

      Aaron,

      The “Founding Fathers” didn’t write the constitution, they wrote the declaration of independence. Read Charles Beard’s “Economic Interpretation of the Constitution” when u get the chance. Short and enjoyable read.

      Even our flawed constitution was trashed by the court. Please carry no misconceptions about who the framers of the constitution were and how it served a counterrevolutionary purpose.

      Real American history requires time and facts, not mythography, rumors and Fox News.

      Aaron,

      While you have been busy, thankfully so, I have been stuck in years of international law, civil litigation and US criminal law. Oh yes, those suckers can be arrested, easy as shit. Nothing protects them.

      They can be arrested but not removed from office unless impeached.

      We have at least 2 justices who have taken money already….and it has been ignored. SC justices have no rights beyond any other federal judge and we lock them up all the time.

    • Gordon Duff  January 29, 2010 at 4:48 pm

      Aaron,

      You don’t know me and I would not know you. We have so many of your type. What is your type? Simple. You are a Fox News/Michael Steele shill who thinks they can suck their way around the internet hoping that our masters will leave them a few crumbs.

      Actually, James Madison wrote the Constitution. I’m pretty sure he was a Founding Father, but I guess I’ll have to double check my “real American history”.

      Mr. Duff, do you believe that the documentary in question in the Citizens United case should have been illegal and that the federal government should have banned its broadcast?

    Personally, I think this is way out there. Why on earth would you want to arrest the 5 justices on the US Supreme Court that are helping to keep America from sliding down the path of ludicrous liberalism. Regarding this ruling, I’m not 100% sure it was the right one but still your call like that could have someone knocking on YOUR door for promoting treason.

    • John Dough  January 26, 2010 at 8:55 pm

      Corporations don’t care whether liberals or conservatives are in power. Watch them swap allegiances quicker than banks fail now days. The money goes to whichever party is in favor at the time. Both parties are corrupt and corporations use that. Anyway, contributions are BRIBERY. They expect something in return. They most often get it and it ain’t for your benefit or mine.

  15. Ilene  January 26, 2010 at 5:05 pm

    In your last paragraph, Mr.Duff, you name freedom speech and press etc., etc. as “conservative.” Why? Never mind. The words “liberal” and “conservative” have been proven meaningless when humane and humanization ideals and needs are replaced with corruption, greed, and the persistent abuse of power. Labels are with credence as long as misery replaces the name of Earth.

  16. Terry McGuire  January 26, 2010 at 4:54 pm

    You, Sir are an idiot.

    This is not about corporations. It is about free speech. Most of us knew when McCain Feingold was passed that it was an attack on free speech. It was not about campaign finance at all.

    And as we knew, the Liberals would disregard it and the Conservatives would obey it.

    You seem to be a shill for Obama and the Democrat Gulag.

    Individuals or corporations who speak for individuals have the right to use that speech in a public forum.

    It is evident that you are a statist man not a freedom-loving Constitutionalist.

    • John Dough  January 26, 2010 at 8:52 pm

      Terry McGuire, you sir are the idiot. Corporations as people? Christ man, are you crazy. How can a business entity speak? What right is lost if they can’t “speak”? The corporation is full of individuals making their individual statements and speeches. The corporation cannot possible speak for all of them.

    • steve  January 27, 2010 at 5:18 pm

      “The corporation is full of individuals making their individual statements and speeches. The corporation cannot possible speak for all of them.”

      no its not, if those employees say anything against the company they will be fired, so think about it…

    • Gordon Duff  January 27, 2010 at 7:46 pm

      You thinking is unsound. Characterizing bribery as ‘free speech’ is wrong. You are saying that a terrorist organization that owns a corporation should have untouched financial influence over American government?

      I see a civil war in the mix. It will be a bloodbath.

      I represent a defense company, traded on the NY Stock exchange, one the Supreme Court would love. Ownership is 80% UAE 10% German and god only kows who owns the rest of it.

      Stock is held by law firms in the US who represent, through a series of corporations hedge funds from Zurich who are controlled by Arabs who, in this case, I know and admire.

      Mullah Omar could, just as easily, own and control this company. The FBI couldn’t find out in a year or more. All you need is one SPV, (special purpose vehicle) in an ownership train, and most companies have them, and control is totally hidden. The Court knew that. They simply had another agenda, one very unAmerican.

    I agree with most of what you said Gordon but I disagree with 2 issues. Like Mike Peters said, we are a Republic and not a Democracy. This is a BS line pushed by our public school system. My biggest concern is that you would push for a Constitutional Convention. You obviously don’t know the dangers involved here. This is the only legal way to change our Constitution and do you actually think it would be better after it is changed? Do you think there would be a 2nd Amendment included? Especially is the government does it like Stephen ‘ski suggests. He wants to let our “Representative Government” come up with a Constitutional fix. Since when do we have a representative govt??? The Constitutiional fix has already taken place. It was called the Continental Congress and it was held last Nov. For eleven days 3 delegates from 47 states got together and came up with a “Constitutional fix”. Get informed about it at http://www.givemeliberty.org Read the Articles of Freedom. Then get off your ass and get involved while you still can.

    Michael, the US Constitution is expressed as “We the People” and not We the Corporations. The ability to regulate corporate activity was kept with the states for a reason…the Indies Trading Company and the Tea Act of 1773. It was well known among the colonists that the issue was unequal protection under law with duties that would have to be paid by them and not the corporation that had more “speech” in Parliment. IMHO both unions and other corporate actors should lobby ME and then let ME as a PERSON LOBBY my representative democratic republic. Money is not SPEECH and it’s the reason colonials sought to have corporations bridled and not let loose on the public domain.

    The courts in England during colonial time sided with the moneyed interest’s Speech and not the PEOPLE. It’s why you had a Tea Party. When your representative government no longer represents We the PEOPLE it’s time to change it again by any means necessary.

    I’m willing to let our representative government come up with a constitutional fix to this in recognizing only “natural” persons as having rights. If they do not do so in the next year, I personally will find another country before this one goes fully to hell.

    If you are brave enough you should read William O’Douglas’s dissent on this issue in Wheeling v. Glander SCOTUS

    People should have free speech, but corporations shouldn’t be free to bribe politicians as they please. This would lead to corruption of the political process and special interests making laws that help them, rather than the people or country as a whole. Corporations would likely give to politicians who give them more contracts and bailouts. This decision is pretty bad.

    Right on !!!!! Its about time America woke up !!!!!! Time for some changes !!!!!

  22. MIKE  January 25, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    Great article passionately written. About time people started speaking up more about these crony suckers. Break your conditioning, Break the left right paradigm. Glen Beck is a CIA planted STooGe. Both parties are controlled, the same agenda is written down by the shadow government behind the scenes. Follow the money. It’s the wall street bankings and private off shore banks that are taking over EVERY country in the world not just America. Wake up people, nobody in congress bar a couple are EVER on your side. It is the morality and the intent of the people to get educated and do something that will change all of this, not the congressmen or politicians. This has happened because of wicked evil apathy and selfish greed and disrespect for the gifts we all have, and due to the evils of the previous generations as well. It can only change with moral revolution, moral renaissance. Only then will things have a chance of quickly being put right again. What is right? LIBERTY. In the words of Aaron Russo: There IS NO GREATER GOOD. LIBERTY IS THE ULTIMATE GOOD.

    Well, I agree that the muck and mire created by this decision is going to be the trap of death to any resemblance of a free election for and by the people. I must mention that the electrinic voting machines that can be hacked should also be addressed. http://www.votefraud.com And on the subject of FDR He gave us the New Deal, a pure Communist invention tobe sure. Not to mention that he was the first to write a direct EO to the people as oppose to his cabinet. And as for the others mentioned, they also usurped the Constition with EO. With each EO this country has slid further and further toward a progressive state. Lookit up before you tell me I’m full of Bull. http://www.libertygunrights.com a woman by the name of Bernadine Smith has a tremendous amt of research on that site. And if you really want to change things in this country, there are 3 things we as Americans can and should do. The first is to join http://www.nvcca.net (National Veterans Committee for Constitutional Affairs and push for Sovereignty legislation in your state and 2. you go to http://www.CC2009.us and join that group and support the effort. 3. You should go to http://www.ReTakeConress.com and Volunteer your time and support those candidates. You have direction so what are you waiting for?

    It is frightening to see so many willing to surrender their sovereignty to corporatism. It’s bad enough that so many have confused corporatism with capitalism, but now to confuse life with a statutory entity is preposterous. You would think the words, “…endowed by our Creator…” would offer sufficient clue to the difference.

    Btw, the Santa Clara v. Southern Pacific Railroad case is based on a fraudulent headnote that contradicted the actual ruling by the judges.

    The founding fathers knew the threat of corporations, and early on corporations had a expiration date of forty years.

    President Thomas Jefferson said, “I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations which dare already to challenge our government in a trial of strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.” Jefferson even went so far as to suggest that banning monopolies in commerce should be written into the Bill of Rights. In 1787 when James Madison sent the first draft of the new Constitution to him, Jefferson noted in a letter that he would “insist on annexing a bill of rights to the new Constitution, i.e. a bill wherein the Government shall declare that, 1. Religion shall be free; 2. Printing presses free; 3. Trials by jury preserved in all cases; 4. No monopolies in commerce; 5. No standing army.”
    President James Madison said, “There is an evil which ought to be guarded against in the indefinite accumulation of property from the capacity of holding it in perpetuity by�corporations. The power of all corporations ought to be limited in this respect. The growing wealth acquired by them never fails to be a source of abuses.”

    President Andrew Jackson said, “In this point of the case the question is distinctly presented whether the people of the United States are to govern through representatives chosen by their unbiased suffrages or whether the money and power of a great corporation are to be secretly exerted to influence their judgment and control their decisions.”

    President Martin Van Buren said, “I am more than ever convinced of the dangers to which the free and unbiased exercise of political opinion — the only sure foundation and safeguard of republican government — would be exposed by any further increase of the already overgrown influence of corporate authorities.”

    President Grover Cleveland, after the Santa Clara County case was decided, said, “As we view the achievements of aggregated capital, we discover the existence of trusts, combinations, and monopolies, while the citizen is struggling far in the rear or is trampled to death beneath an iron heel. Corporations, which should be the carefully restrained creatures of the law and the servants of the people, are fast becoming the people’s masters.”

    Thank God for these 5 Justices that have returned our freedoms back to us, the people, taken away by a centralising govenment that has grown too big for its britches. The lobbyists that put money into the politicians pockets are the true problem not individuals and corporations running advertisements for or against politician’s positions that are based on the lobby money the politicians solicit and receive. God Bless American and all the free thinking people and our free market economy. May we always resist progressivism, socialism and any other form of social, economic and political forms that oppose the liberty-liberalism of our country at its founding and free market capitalism.

    A free man.

    Thanks Gordon. Anyone who can’t see the truth to your post doesn’t deserve to.

  27. Jim Lunsford  January 25, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    I am amazed at the number of people who do not believe this article is true. They deny what is right in front of them. The first article alone claims their corporations, as few as one person, or even consisting of our “news” media corps would never betray what we were supposed to stand for. How naive and willfully ignorant that person is about the world. Even the CIA director (Colby) admitted the CIA owned our precious “news” media. While it is true a corporation can be just one person, the financial resources of IBM are far greater than a corporation of one. Yes, IBM that icon of morality, the corporation whose first contract was to make the computer cards for the tattoos of the Jews in Hitler’s Germany. Really, all this decision did was to finalize and publicize what has been our reality since Rockefeller convinced some corrupt politicians in Delaware he really needed a corporation for private gain. we’ve been the Corporate States of America ever since that day.

  28. Bill Britton  January 25, 2010 at 1:38 pm

    American democracy died with the Supreme Court ruling on corporate campaign contributions, a cruel ruling that marginalizes 95% of us, the common taxpayer. Thus, the transfer of power to the moneyed elite continues undiminished.

    Semper Fi

  29. James  January 25, 2010 at 6:00 am

    You’re arresting the wrong Supreme Court. The ones that decided Corporations are a person was from a decision in 1884.

    If you say a corporation isn’t a person, than you’re going to screw up the entire economy. Corporations won’t be able to enter contacts, won’t be able to own property, couldn’t be sued for liability. It would destory our entire way of life overnight.

    I don’t think any of you have thought this through at all.

    • Gordon Duff  January 25, 2010 at 4:11 pm

      This was not a supreme court decision, it was the equivalent of, not only a constitutional amendment, but it essentially erases the bill of rights. When you may, not corporations, but money, foreign money, a ‘citizen’ with unequal rights, rights unearned,…..

      anyone…one would think any idiot could see this…..

      g

  30. Melvin Jones  January 25, 2010 at 4:16 am

    The Justices said no such thing. They said a corporation can consist or as few as one person. Specifically they said the first amendment applies to corporations the same as it does to individuals. Corporations – you know, like ABC, NBC, and CBS and the rest of the corporations that give us the news, print political books, and television shows. And where did it say corporations are above the law, morality, and God? Please point me to the page and paragraph of the decision. I’d really appreciate it.

  31. Hungover Guy  January 25, 2010 at 3:13 am

    As much as I can understand right now, I think you’re right!

  32. mr_bad  January 25, 2010 at 3:01 am

    The 14th Amendment was intended to secure equal rights for the newly freed slaves. Instead, between 1890 and 1910—304 court cases were brought before the Supreme Court under the 14th Amendment. 288 of the 304 were brought on behalf of corporations [95%]. The other 19 were brought by black people.

    In other words, the powers of business, led by the Rockefellers and the Rothchilds, did not give a damn about the poor or minorities. It’s clear what the corporate interests are. The swing of power has been on the side of the elite longer than any of us has been alive and it’s because of the criminal minded men in the Supreme Court, Congress, and the White House.

    The time for starting a Revolution for the We the People has long since passed. Corporations have been having their way with the American people for more than 100 years.

    It’s way passed time We the People created a new Amendment that destroys corporations in their current form or they will be the end us all.

    It’s way passed time We the People created a new Amendment that destroys the Federal Reserve and permanently restores Sound Constitutional Money.

    It’s way passed time We the People created a new Amendment that creates a Balanced Budget Amendment that puts the power to declare Bankruptcy on this insane $12 Trillion National Debt that no American outside the criminals in Washington want any part of.

    It’s way passed time We the People created a new Amendment that creates a fair tax system that abolishes the unconstitutional IRS.

    It’s time America started spending tax dollars on Americans instead of handing $1.5 dollars every damn year to the Military Industrial Complex and the National Debt. We could easily have a fantastic healthcare system and college educations for EVERY AMERICAN WITHOUT DEBT.

    America needs a New Bill of Rights Revolution of, for, and by We the People, and it just so happens there’s book titled the New Bill of Rights Revolution on lulu.com for $17.76 that you can buy right now that outlines such a plan.

  33. Bob  January 25, 2010 at 2:56 am

    While this is significant, I think the author may be exagerating its impact. It’s always been that he who throws the most money around wins the election. Obama raised over $650 million, more than any other president in history. Do you think all that money came from private citizens ? Hardly. Way too many special interests involved there, including heads of corporations posing as “citizens”.
    The sad fact is that our system of democracy has morphed into a “bought and paid for” regime. Another sad fact is that journalism died in this country, and has been replaced with leftist agendaism, thanks to likes of George Soros, et all.
    They manipulate the weak-minded who believe anything they see on TV. That’s how elections get won.

    • stephen verchinski  January 26, 2010 at 7:33 am

      Yeah Bob and the Rightest Corporate Agenda must be oK by you. Get your head out of the sand and look at your own corporate candidate John, I never did an earmark McCain. What was his position in the Senate?…oh chair of the senate commerce committee overseeing corporate largesss from the Overseas PUBLICPRIVATE Investment Co. The branch also known as the one of giving your hard earned tax dollars in subsidies and grants to corporations taking their business to the far ends of the earth. Oh and then using our military to back up their investments after they screwed the local population when bribery did’nt work… See for example the Freeport McMoran company and it’s great gold mining operations in Papua New Guinea….no different than the Bush crime family doing business with the Nazis in WWII…what a coincidence that hitler invaded poland just after the board of directors were being called on the carpet for accounting irregularities and other corporate malfeasance by the Polish government.

    The article http://ravallirepublic.com/articles/2010/01/15/news/news74.txt
    might just provide a valuable key out of our dilemma. Take a look & chew it a while..

    My support goes to the wonderful “extremely concerned Ravalli County citizens” who signed this petition. They are shining a light for us to follow.

  35. Points of light  January 25, 2010 at 1:18 am

    Is Mr. Duff CIA? His credentials might seem to indicate it, as he is involved as a government advisor to so many foreign powers. And he is involved in the financial sectors as well.

    His call for “overthrowing” supreme court justices by treason trials is rather over the top. Is this a phishing for radicals blog?

  36. Googlesnatch  January 25, 2010 at 1:15 am

    Here is a solution to all this. We all need to stop voting for any incumbent. If they will not give us term limits, we must do it for them. After all, bad supreme courts come from bad appointments by guess who? The political class. Start at home by unelecting all your county board incumbents and local committmen. That is who needs to go first. Rotten from top to bottom, one and all. Vote for the democrat if the republican is in, and vote for the republican if the democrat is in. Never pay attention to party labels,as they are used to control your thinking and your voting. Vote outside the box. Just tell incumbents “No Thanks”. Then smell the fresh air!!!!!!! Ahhhhhh….

  37. Naked Truth  January 25, 2010 at 1:04 am

    The country has been stolen from under the people. Quite simple. The bankers and their henchmen the bribed, hired, under the table, backroom dealing lawyer politicians have seen to it that nothing is really left at all. They are laughing everytime an article like this deflects attention away from them.

    How long until the currency is collapsed? That is what we all should be worried about here. Our immoral spending on endless war continues under Hope and Change Obama, but is eliminating the surplus population too slowly…we must find other ways to kill the masses.

    And we are truly worried about one little facet of how they are doing it, ie: the corporate campaign donations? LOL Get REAL!!!! What a JOKE. The judiciary has been under political pressure ever since it’s inception. The idea that it was impartial was always an illusion and a facade to fool people into agreeing with the decisions. A prime example was the kitchen door meetings between supreme court justices and president Roosevelt during the court packing attempts of the 30s. Impartial judges? Hint: they were not visiting the Whitehouse backdoor entrance in the night for tea with the president. What world do you live in?

    You want judges impeached or tried for treason? Let’s start with the snakes in the two legislative bodies that have sold their votes and this country out from under the people.

    The supreme court’s decision is just one more in a littany of abuses. My only question is what took you so long to wake up to it? Why is this such an offense to you, when so many other cases of rights abuse have been handed down by the court or voted by the house and senate and you didn’t raise a peep? (Years of increasing gun control, increasing police powers, more taxes…less responsive government etc.)

    I didn’t hear you scream when Indian tribes were allowed unlimited donations by the same law that prohibited anyone else from donating beyond small limits. That loophole from Mr. McCain netted him huge donations from those same tribes. Pay to Play or Bribes, what ever you call it the law you seem to love was also corrupt the way it was written.

    My heavens, the supreme court has suddenly just gone off course???????? Gag. (about 100 years late I’d say)

    I suppose with this reasoning, the terrible “Bush Wars” were awful, but by golly don’t ask you to sign any petition against Obama’s wars. You people must be blind not to see both sides are working for someone else. They are hired, bribed guns for the lobbyists that control them and their campaigns. It’s the strange reason Hope and Change Obama isn’t changing anything. And you are worried about the continuing string of bad court decisions against the people? Really? I have my doubts since you are so late to the table.

  38. Sherry Lord  January 24, 2010 at 11:47 pm

    I am going through the FEC records to see who has contributed to my Representative and what I’ve learned so far is that corporations already give to campaigns, they just form a PAC and do it through their PAC. I appreciate the moral outrage of all concerned but I reiterate, the only people who are cut out of the process as it stood until the Supreme Court ruling this week are those who have a message to get out and must resort to fund-raising or to seeking corporate donations. Most of us aren’t sophisticated enough to know about all the PACs out there and so seeking corporate money is the only answer we know of. As such, we’re the only ones who haven’t been allowed to “speak.” Everybody had access to the system as it stood until the ruling, including corporations, except private citizens. I still say this is not activism on the part of the court, it’s a return to what was supposed to be under the Constitution. Obama’s lawyers told the court that because “corporate money” was used in an anti-Hillary movie, even if the same material were put in a book the book would have to be banned under FEC rules about “corporations.” We’re now into book banning and you guys want to arrest the judges because they wouldn’t condone book banning? Hillary and her supporters are allowed to run around and say anything they want against her opponents but those who oppose her end up in court. Whose side are you on?

    • Gordon Duff  January 25, 2010 at 4:00 am

      Sherry,

      Its not about Hilliary. Its about the Mexican Drug Cartels buying Congress. They have the money, now they have the right.

    The ‘supreme’ court has been a POS for a long time now. When you consider that at least half the laws passed by Congress in the last 100 years are obviously unConstitutional and the supreme court has struck down almost none. The three branches of government have now merged into one, totally corrupt, dedicated only to making a few rich people richer. In any other country, except maybe the UK, the people would have revolted already. Americans and their British counterparts are mostly fat, lazy, stupid sheep (actually, an insult to sheep) who deserve everything that happens to them.
