Who is the Real Traitor: Wikileaks, or Their Attackers?


There is no more important expression to protect, than any truth embarrassing to the government.

That is, above all else, the freedom of speech the Founders wanted the First Amendment to preserve.

In fact, its big test, in 1798, was against the Alien and Sedition Acts, that were passed to silence those who would embarrass the US government.

This censorship so outraged the American public that it brought down the Adams administration, and destroyed the Federalist Party, that had dominated American politics up to that very point.

And that should tell you something about the kind of people who are wanting to censor Wikileaks, for the crime of publishing truth that is embarrassing to secretive liars in the US government.

And to those who would claim that Swedish/Australian Wikileaks isn’t protected:

The Founders clearly intended the entire Bill of Rights to restrain the US government in ALL actions, not just on Americans. Just ask Judge Andrew Napolitano.

Wherever the US government goes, the Constitution is there…it’s the sole source of its legitimacy. And the Bill of Rights is part of the Constitution.

Not only do the Obama administration and neocons want to violate the 1st amendment, but they are promoting the tyranny of government secrecy.

If the government keeps an embarrassing secret from its own voters, this changes how they vote. That is the same violation of an election as if there were armed stormtroopers in your polling booth, changing your vote.

What is the excuse these attackers of the Constitution use as their excuse? That people who have lied to and kept secrets from the American voter might be endangered.

It is yet another example of Appeal to Cowardice, their favorite tool today.

These people, who assault the American ideals of truth and justice, who want to engage in the terrorism of a police state against political speech, are the real traitors.

Entrapment: The FBI Rolls its Own Terrorism


The FBI has a disturbing pattern of taking loudmouth bluffers and pushing them into FBI-supplied "crimes"

All over America, right now, drunks are sitting in bars talking about how they’d love to shoot their evil Ex in the head. Almost none of them will ever do it, of course.

But, someday, one will.

If the police state then organizes a task force to go around offering guns and encouragement to those drunks, then arresting any who are talked into acting on their bluff, it will be entrapment.

Some of those men (almost all, in fact) would never otherwise have done it.

Right now, all over America, angry people are talking about how they’d like to do this or that thing that really amounts to terrorism, if it weren’t petty hot air. A task force looking for these people and offering to help them is exactly the same kind of entrapment evil.

Some goofy, poser kid in Oregon was recently bragging that he could “get a gun because I’m a rapper”, wanted to blow something up, et cetera.

The FBI contacted this kid, pretending to be a terrorist organization, and got him to accept a fake bomb, which he then tried to use to blow up a Christmas tree.

This was precisely the same kind of unacceptable entrapment. We will never know whether the kid would have actually tried to blow up anything, without our own government’s encouragement and enablement.

And worse, this is a disturbing pattern. They did it in Chicago, Dallas, New York, Rockford, and elsewhere. We also don’t know how many will be spurred on to do something they wouldn’t have, but end up bypassing the FBI scammer and actually kill someone BECAUSE of our own government’s urging, as happened with the 1992 WTC Bombing.

Entrapment is always wrong…even when the police state uses Appeal to Cowardice to justify it.
