Unbelievable! The CIA now officially above the law

It's becoming more undeniable that America is a police state. From Glenn Greenwald:

"Destruction of these tapes was so controversial because it seemed so obviously illegal. At the time the destruction order was issued, numerous federal courts — as well as the 9/11 Commission — had ordered the U.S. Government to preserve and disclose all evidence relating to interrogations of Al Qaeda and 9/11 suspects. Purposely destroying evidence relevant to legal proceedings is called “obstruction of justice.” Destroying evidence which courts and binding tribunals (such as the 9/11 Commission) have ordered to be preserved is called “contempt of court.” There are many people who have been harshly punished, including some sitting right now in prison, for committing those crimes in far less flagrant ways than was done here. In fact, so glaring was the lawbreaking that the co-Chairmen of the 9/11 Commission — the mild-mannered, consummate establishmentarians Lee Hamilton and Thomas Kean — wrote a New York Times Op-Ed pointedly accusing the CIA of “obstruction” (“Those who knew about those videotapes — and did not tell us about them — obstructed our investigation”).

In 2008, Attorney General Michael Mukasey appointed a Special Prosecutor to determine if criminal charges should be filed. When I was writing my last book about the legal immunity bestowed on political elites even for egregious crimes, I actually expected that Rodriguez would be indicted and that his indictment would be an exception to the rule of elite immunity which I was documenting. As I wrote in my book, “even our political class, I thought, couldn’t allow lawbreaking this brazen to go entirely unpunished.” But I was quite wrong about that."

At long last,

the true nature of the coup is becoming clear.

Unfortunately, due to the political correctness activity of the "don't talk about 9/11 truth" crowd, we are now in a position where they will just kill us if we say anything they don't like.
Because the gatekeepers tried their damnedest to make sure nobody ever heard the truth.
And now we shall all pay for that with our lives.

To me there really is no in

To me there really is no in between-either you live under rule of law or you live under the arbitrary whim of rulers-a police state. We may not be the Soviet Union yet but the potential for it is horrendous. The US-unlike the Soviets or Nazis, has technology, the military and a militarized domestic local police capacity to totally control us in a way the Soviets, Nazis and other totalitarian states in the past didn't have. Watch for:

1. A massive crackdown on the internet

2. Forced vaccinations for the purpose of big pharma and for collcting our DNA.

3. Homeland Security to expand to local neighborhoods.

Better hope they keep pissing away all the money because Washington going broke is the American people's only hope.
