Due Process IS Damned

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Maine is but one example of how, what is left of and thought of as our rights under the U.S. Constitution and the Constitutions of individual States, are being systematically destroyed. This destruction is actually all part of the administering of the Constitutions by administrators/the elected, mostly ignorant and definitely bred to be the good totalitarians they are in order to carry out the wants and demands of the fascists who rule.

Perhaps, rather than state that what is “thought to be our rights under the constitutions” are being destroyed, it is more precise to say that, to some, a revelation of the actual intent of the constitution is being revealed and as such appears as a destruction of rights.

Originally Maine proposed a bill, LD 1312, a precise “red flag” bill that blatantly would ensure that any person THOUGHT to be a danger to themselves or others would be stripped of due process of the law all in the name of someone’s, or group of someones’, perspective as to their mental abilities and capacities – a value-weighted mindset derived by one’s ideology.

The Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine (SAM) and the NRA strongly opposed LD 1312 but for some strange reason they took up the cross of the governor and gun control advocates and went to work to devise a bill that would accomplish the same thing but to a lesser degree. They devised LD 1811, a bit whitewashed from LD 1312 but still stripped an accused person of their “right” (or at least a system partially shared by others) to due process. LD 1811, wrongly pares the loss of due process down to a minimum of 14 days but still provides for a person to effectively go on endlessly in “protective custody” and having their private property, which happens to be property thought to be protected under both the Federal and State Constitutions right to keep and bear arms (and shall never be questioned), with many of the meted out rights withdrawn.

It was brought to my attention by a friend that in testimony before the legislative subcommittee the sponsor of LD 1312, the original “red flag” proposal, stated that the intent of the bill was to “get the guns out of the house.” While the sponsors of this bill willingly admit that the bill is intended to take guns away from anyone THEY deem necessary (one law enforcement person and one medical person), it appears as though the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine (SAM) has approached their attempt at “compromising” with the governor and other gun haters from the perspective of a gun rights proposal with little attention, perhaps due to ignorance, given to the blatant violation of due process and what would appear as a deliberate disregard of a person’s right to not have their property taken away first and at some future point in time administer some degree of due process. While SAM states its opposition to a loss of a person’s right to Due Process, they certainly have a strange way of showing it.

About a year ago, I wrote a piece called, “By Whom is Due Process of Law Administered?” I reread that the other day and once again this morning to examine how my thoughts at that time coincide with my thoughts at the moment as regards this red flag law proposal taking place in Maine and other states. I find that the year-old article is precise and certainly applies to the actions of today. I hope you take the time to read and/or reread that piece.

Here is some of what I wrote: “

What may have been your grandfather’s “Due Process” doesn’t even carry the same DNA as today’s Due Process and at the rate things are changing and that “balanced constitutional system” gets more and more out of whack – to those with sense enough to see it – we have as much hope remaining to cling to Due Process as we do the Second Amendment or any other Constitutional article that might stand in the way of the Global Power Structure.

“Due Process is a subjective matter and was designed as such. Due Process is as much as society will tolerate and the government can get away with. Even though society believes that the Constitution gives them Due Process and that this “balanced constitutional system” works, they are wrong. We even constantly hear of those screaming to get out and vote in order to get those wanting to upset that “balanced constitutional system” (rigged) out of office and replaced with another clone/drone and yet, nothing ever changes. Oppression and tyranny march forward in a slow and methodical pace, hidden behind a shroud of watered-down constitutional rights and due process.

“Invoking Due Process is a worthless instrument. So long as Congress “makes all laws which are necessary and proper” and voting in new blood doesn’t change anything, then we are left with but one choice – continue to convince ourselves that we are guaranteed Due Process, along with all those other “rights” meted out by men for slaves.

“Due Process be Damned!!!!!”

What is contained in the constitution is doled out to the citizen-serfs as it benefits the administrative governments and the Global Power Structure. Until such time as people can, somehow, get a grasp on that reality, all of the rest of this becomes an exercise in frustration, anger, and endless futility.

Think back of the turmoil that surrounded the attacks on the World Trade Center. Then President Bush and his flock of fascists crammed the “Patriot Act” down our throats. Most American’s bought into the song and dance and eagerly gave up certain rights (they thought they had) and permitted the government to set aside any thoughts of Due Process in exchange for “SECURITY.” We bought it and still do.

Here we are sneaking up on 20 years later and we see totalitarian subjects/activists doing what the government did back then. How convenient for the Feds and now the state governments. In the name of “security” and “public safety” we are staged to continue an onslaught against liberties and freedom regardless of the effect.

If Due Process is allotted in ways that are only beneficial to the wishes of the Ruling Establishment, then the frustration and anger becomes prevalent because we believe a “right” has been taken away, when, in fact, it was never there as we thought…or at least as a clear and precise guaranteed right.

While American citizens try to hang on to what is a mixed up allotment of “rights” and “privileges,” in hopes that it will make their lives better, it becomes even more discouraging and confrontational when those whom we thought share the belief that rights, regardless of the control we may or may not have over them, are worth trying to protect, are now seemingly working to dismantle in the name of security. It all sounds too familiar. What are we doing?

Even if we don’t have much of any control over our perceived rights, doing what we can to slow down the governments from complete and instant tyrannical control may be in our best interest. Getting on board to do the work of tyrannical governments makes no sense and makes one question why anyone would do such a thing.
