Opinion

Stealing America describes the over-criminalization of citizens, the un-Constitutional establishment of the "law" as a religion, the vacuous undeserved "respect" demanded by the law, and confirms Machiavelli's warning that "princely" power destroys those who criticize the "royalty" in charge of us. 

 The book cover summarizes:  "In the fall of 2014, outspoken pundit, author, and film-maker Dinesh D'Souza found himself hauled into federal court for improperly donating money to a friend who was running for the Senate.  D'Souza pleaded guilty, apologized for his offense, and was sentenced to eight months in a state-run confinement center near his home in San Diego.  In the facility, he lived among hardened criminals--drug dealers, thieves, gangbangers, rapists, and murderers.  Now, in this timely, fresh, provocative, and entertaining book, the bestselling author explains how this experience not only changed his life, but fundamentally transformed his perception of his adopted country."

D'Souza found fascism, law worship and judges-as-gods:

Page 6:  The judge said: "The campaign law offense and much inaccurate chatter and interviews surrounding this case do not promote respect for the law and need to be remedied" (Amazing:  "respect for the law" is what judges always rely on to rationalize their determinations.   Without  the cosmetic "respect for the law", all government would be seen as the oppressive thuggery which it is--which is why "respect" propaganda is the first, last and only thing which matters to those in the law so they do not have to realize what frauds and tyrants they all really are, and can intimidate and fool the public into allowing their fascism to proceed).

Page 13:  Maliciously, FBI agents were all over the case even wanting an assistant of D'Souza to wear a hidden wire to show he broke the campaign finance law because he has shown contempt for such laws (So, in America, there is no freedom to express "contempt", so richly deserved, for the "law" with the current non-Founders in charge.).

Page 14:  The judge refuses to open government files which may show evidence of selective prosecution (So, in America, "equal protection" is as big a myth as "respect for the law"--both being propaganda and shams).

Page 27:  The judge issues a terse order that confinement begin immediately, instead of in six weeks as apparently was customary for such non-severe illegalities (No doubt to appease the government fascists pressuring the judge to lynch D'Sousa for trivialities).

Page 149-152:  The judge orders comprehensive psychiatric and psychological examinations of D'Souza, all of which declare benignity.  Disbelieving, the judge then maliciously orders government psychiatric examinations which also were "completely normal."  The judge orders weekly counseling anyway while in confinement (May be "respect for the law" means that counseling is needed for those who do not think the way the judge thinks?). 

Page 151:  The judge maliciously wanted D'Souza to do "makeup classes" for his community service when classes were cancelled on Christmas and New Year holidays (D'Souza wondered if the judge did "makeup" hearings when the court closed for holidays).

Page 252-253:  Nearing the end of confinement, the judge insisted on more counseling, dismissing the recommendations of D'Souza's trained counselor, who had examined him weekly for eight months, together with two medical psychiatrists, all pronouncing D'Souza perfectly normal.  "The judge said that as a psych major in college, he believed that I was in need of further counseling."  (To me, this proved that those who really need psychiatric evaluation and medical help are judges and all in government as I wrote in "Healthy Government" (1) in 1984).

To read this book is to find that the current flurry of efforts to correct police misdeeds pale compared to what is needed in the judiciary, the prosecution, and for every government worker from the White House to the local Medicare desk clerk (those in the military and in Postal Service excluded).  Fascism intrinsically reigns from governments always.   Period.  The differences between the celebrated government of the United States and condemned Stalinist Sovietism is merely of degree, of whom targeted and of the gods in charge.  As a Great Course on the origin of evil once proclaimed about government law:  "The law does not care about truth or justice but about legalisms."  See my articles "Law Worship" (2),  "American Fascism" (3), and "GGG--GmtGmtGmt--What I Learned" (4). 

 By mistakenly making illegal contributions for the election of a friend, D'Souza found all this out and thankfully wrote about how America has been "stolen" by corrupt, lying, arrogant, un-virtuous politicians and almost all of the liberal Democratic Party in the United States.  I had a similar experience (5) from government fascists and was incarcerated for five months in prison, which was much more intense than D'Souza's eight months of overnight confinement to a half-way house where he was allowed his usual daytime activities at his home.  Like D'Souza, I did not fit in, and fellow criminals asked me almost daily, "Why are you here?"  All shook their heads hearing that I was 77 years old, first offense, no violence, with plea bargain for three 3rd degree felonies based on a law which declared a physician to be "trafficking in drugs" if he prescribed pain medications without doing physical examinations (even though the surgery was decades old) and without getting pain specialist consultations every three months (even when pain specialists were refused by the patients). 

I must add that my own experience in several prisons was worse, but I learned much more:  Inmates were raised without virtuous fathers; by disturbed mothers; no virtue education; no meaningful developmentally sound childhood; learning disabled; poorly educated; deprived; unloved; no job skills; muscle preoccupied and grandly tattooed to send a protective "tough guy" message; always ready for violence; mental illnesses common; rare visitors; gang commitments; street drug use beginning in all by 11 years of age; using drugs to escape from a dehumanizing culture of prurience and violence because the press & media do not understand that the First Amendment was really to keep citizens in believing and following the Ten Commandments known to the Founders; no meaningful rehabilitation; most were recidivists over and over; those in the legal system getting wealthy by prison industry investments earned by keeping prisons full (Some prisoners said "We are commodities"); and knowing that he will be discharged alone (no family or friends to pick him up) at completion of sentence, dressed in non-prison simple attire, having been given eighty dollars, and dropped off at the nearest bus station (all this after years or decades in prison).  I heard many times from the older guys, "When it got too bad, I did something to get arrested and imprisoned again"--which for many is better than open living in the empty, impoverished, job-less, anti-family, feminist, anti-virtuous-male, abortion-filled, child-destroying, virtue-ignoring, prurient and violence-filled dead America which created them.  I had thousands of hours of listening to, talking with, and drawing out the minds of the worst criminals reminding of Walker Percy's "All doctors should spend two years in prison.  They'd treat their patients better, as fellow flawed human beings"(6).   I would say that three months would be enough but more strongly recommend that all politicians, lawyers and journalists spend three months in prison also--Who knows, they might want to re-create America as founded.

Knowing the Ten Commandments of the Founders will be suppressed, I offered "Rehabilitation Implosion" (6) and "Ten Suggestions" (7), both censored by the press which does not allow criticism of journalism--because it is the "ism" that destroyed America.  So America has not just been "stolen."  It has been killed, and the America of the Founders is dead.

Stealing America demonstrates how abortion (and contraception) have "killed" the America of the Founders (8,9) predicted by my book The Death of America (10) written in 1974 because of Roe v. Wade.  Thus, Stealing America understates the current tyranny--as stated by Thomas Jefferson:  "When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.  When the government fears the people, there is liberty."  Without a doubt, the United States government is a tyranny as run by liberal Democrats especially.  Read and promulgate D'Sousa's book and every thing else this contemporary "Thomas Jefferson" (D'Souza) produces.  Also read the Liberal Declaration of Independence and let the revolution begin (Addendum).  The current royalty in charge of America need the French Revolution, and that royalty includes the press & media.

Addendum--The Liberal Declaration of Independence

 We hold these truths to be self-evident: 

That all men, women, healthy wanted children, and creatures intermittently personalized and adored,                are created as selfish as they can get away with, and are genetically endowed by DNA to have unalienable materialist-crooked-politician and self-serving-judge determined RIGHTS: the Right to LIFE as authorized by evolutionary dogmatic liberal numerologists, the Right to LIBERTY as confirmed by the scientific bosses of the liberal  race, and the Right to the PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS as imposed by imperial liberal” prior restraint” using editors & journalists in obedience to their infallible owners.

 This is where we are now.  It is a massive contradiction to evolution, and it absolutely rebuts all claims that man has improved over the past 10,000 years in spite of the glitz.  The prehistoric people are back in charge—They are the AMERICAN ROYALTY (the liberal US Congress, Executive, Judiciary, all elected and appointed public officials, and editors and journalists of the liberal Press&Media).  Here is how they CORRUPT themselves: 

       -making and promoting laws and rules for others which they do not have to follow 

            (And that IS ROYALTY, for sure!);

       -funding their own retirement and health care plans not available to lesser citizens;

       -building financial empires while in public office

       -imposing procedure and service codes on everyone except themselves                        

       -without conscience, superego or decency (Never ever wrong!);

       -refusing to resign when guilty as hell about damn near everything (Deny! Deny!)

       -incapable of disgrace or embarrassment even when found conspiring on the internet;

       -destroying the 2500 year old Hippocratic Oath and turning the Medical Profession 

           into a state of Indentured Servitude ruining health care;

       -suppressing, offending and depriving people of the free exercise of religion, 

            especially Catholics and other Christians;

       -selecting the material, applying the tone, and presenting disproportionately to 

           misuse the facts in order to manipulate the people any way possible;

       -suffering from arrogant ignorance and intellectual pride by refusing term limits;

       -self-righteously contemptuous of all but their own points of view (Lie! Lie!); 

       -deforming the Constitution into a joke;

       -protesting what was done to “victims,” only doing it themselves to those disliked;         

       -infantalizing citizens (socialism) i.e., doing what America, up to now, avoided doing             

            (and thereby achieved and maintained greatness—which she could not have done 

            with socialistic dependent, irresponsible, lazy, incompetent, parasitic citizens who 

            get paid to vote and not to work.); 

       -and humping away in sexual activity rejected by the animal kingdom—

The liberal US Congress, Executive and Judiciary and the liberal Press&Media are anti-

    Transcendental self-proclaimed ROYALTY without Truth, Oneness, Good or  

    Beauty, and haven’t got a clue except their own grunting solipsisms—royalty cavemen 

    for sure—as selfish as they can get away with and traitors to the American Dream!

Corruption and Justice….to prevent the establishment of “Royalty” and the "hand of Herod" (our government at work) “LEGICARE” 

 Charles Dickens said, "The law is an ass."  I have discovered that government law is a capitalist system scheme to control and extort citizens under the guise of "promoting the common good."  It makes money for politicians and all in the law system, selected favored groups and individuals, all employees of the metastatic law megabureaucracy, and for their dictating friends in the press and media.  Seeking a veiled totalitarianism, government law manages occasionally to be virtuous, but overall, it seeks neither truth or justice, but inflated preening self-righteousness of arranging legalisms (Lego block equivalents) into an outhouse of sorts.  Totally unconstitutional, the government law is an "established religion" with pompous courtroom rituals and dogmatisms second to none in authoritarianism.  It is an opiate for those in power.  It deserves neither respect nor admiration but fear and contempt pretending safety, respect and admiration.  The best way to understand government law and those in it is by the New Testament metaphors of "scribes and Pharisees" (and add Herodians and Pontius Pilate too).  The following corrective measures are needed.  Until implemented, all government law is a tyranny in every country wherever it is; and government laws only differ on whom and how destroyed.

  True Justice requires all political systems to address CORRUPTION by these rules for all political leaders of any nature (elected, appointed, appropriated):

  1. All citizens will be covered for all legal matters by a third party system as is health care.
  2. All in government and law (and family members) are not exempt from any laws.
  3. All in government and law (and family members if employed) are to be paid only by a base salary determined by procedure and service codes which will be the only source of paying for personal benefits received when in office.   All procedure and service codes will be equally required for plaintiff and defendant in all litigation in search for “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” as sworn by all parties (including judges and lawyers); and in all government administrative procedures (including Internal Revenue Service) such that “equality before the law” requires government provided services “on behalf” of citizens to equal those actions “against” citizens.
  4. All in government and law (and family members) will be prohibited from any investment in prison or prison support industries.  All incarcerations will be overturned whenever this has happened in the past.
  5. All in government and law (and family members) will study, review and sign-off annually on Stanley Milgrim Suggestibility, Stanford Penitentiary Experiment, and Nifong Prevention Programs.
  6. All laws, whenever mentioned in any legal proceeding, will be completely read into the record each time with all parties in attendance so that the defendant is assured that all parties know the law.
  7. "Plea bargains" will be prohibited, because they deprive trial by jury which is constitutionally guaranteed.  For equality before the law, the state must equally fund jury trials for both plaintiffs and defendants.   Prosecutors must prove ALL initial charges and counts, for "guilt" to be found (Each initial "count" is to be a "juror" equivalent).
  8. All in government and law and their family members’ retirement, health care, travel without specific government mission, job security & protection, and any other benefits are determined by the same laws and rules which govern the common citizen and will be paid for as common citizens pay from personal finances.
  9. All in government and law and their family members will be taxed at a 90% rate for any and all increases beyond salary based assets accrued while in office and for five years after leaving government employment.
  10. All in government and law must have served 4 years in the military and have their children and grandchildren serve in the military for 3 years without special consideration.
  11. All in government and law and family members’ estates will be taxed at 90% at death for all assets over 3 million dollars accumulated during government employment and for 5 years therafter.
  12. All laws will be repealed which give any government employee or person in law any benefit not given to the common citizen.
  13. No remuneration of any kind is to be received for enhancing reputation, business generation, client and associate management, civic activities, bar association activities, pro bono activities, speeches, appointments to corporation boards or equivalents.  There will be no origination fees, referral fees, fiat retainers, or name value payments or any other payments unless appropriate to the legal work actually performed.  
  14. All members of law firms can bill only for work personally performed and documented, time and service, by open records.
  15. Immediate members of politicians' families are prohibited from practicing law.
  16. Appearances of impropriety and conflicts of interest are to be avoided, disclosed immediately, undone, and prevented.
  17. All legal and financial records of all in government and the law (and employed family members) are open to the public.
  18. The right to privacy and prohibition of unreasonable searches require that all medical records for all citizens are absolutely confined to the doctor patient relationship.
  19. All in government and law (and family members) are prohibited from any financial remuneration from or investment interest in any press and/or media business.
  20. All in government at all levels must wear cameras and recorders for all government related activities with permanent retrieval forever.
  21. No politician can be re-elected to the same office more than once.
  22. The First Amendment does not allow lies and it to preserve the integrity and decency of the people consistent with the Ten Commandments believed and followed by the Founders.

 To SERVE THE PEOPLE is a privilege to be paid for…SERVING THE PEOPLE is not a method of becoming tyrannical ROYALTY.  Rules are needed to prevent the corruption in the legal system because attorneys especially have innate conflict of interest in that the more they complicate and aggravate the problem, the more fees they can  charge.  Recording and documentation of federally defined and fee-fixed procedure and service codes are needed for every attorney, judge, and federal bureaucracy member.  Essentially, now THE SYSTEM only works well for those IN it i.e., politicians, judges, attorneys, and those in the bureaucracy.  For the rest of us, THE SYSTEM is basically anti-freedom and anti-independence because it exerts fascist-like control almost automatically oppressive.  The people are entitled to EQUALITY before the law.  This basically means that the Legal System for attorneys must be equivalent to Obamacare for physicians.  Like medicine, the government law has become a capitalist business with Soviet style powers rather than a profession for the Common Good.  The tendered rules will correct this and prevent the corrupting influence of "power."  All government law--every government law--is a tyranny in every country where ever it is; and government laws only differ in whom and how destroyed.  At best, government law is a necessary evil masquerading as the common good but only preventing anarchy, so all suffer the same except those in law.
