"What was the name of that last agent who decided that
he was going to expose our operation? Well, his name's
unimportant . . . get him!"
"Get him, Chief?"
"Yes, I said get him! Whatever you have to do so he
can't testify before the Grand Jury. We can't afford to have
our methods of operation dragged out like some dirty wash and
exposed to the public."
The next morning, newspapers carried a story about the
body of a man found just outside the door of his motel. The
motel was in Virginia, just outside of Washington, DC. The
medical examiner reported he died of a heart attack. The
story carried a remark that he was an ex-CIA agent who was
reportedly going to testify before the federal grand jury.
Could this be true? We will never know if this was
murder but they did discover the body of a former agent as
described. It has also been admitted by experts that poisons
are now available that would give the appearance of death by
heart attack. Coincidence?
Another former agent who wrote a book about the dirty
tricks of the CIA is now forced to live in France. He fears
he will be murdered if he returns to the United States.
One of the hostages in the middle east was recently
murdered by his captors. It was later admitted in the media
that he had been the station chief for the Central Intel-
ligence Agency. The camel jockey captors knew who they had
and eliminated him.
And people can say the SS of the German Army was a
ruthless secret police force? We had better have the moral
courage to examine what kind of idiots we have running loose.
Not only here but around the world as well.
Where can we find a rock large enough to look under to
find the authority for an organization like the Central
James Madison points out in The Federalist Papers, No.
45: "The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to
the federal government are few and defined." (All references
to 'paper no' are from this book.)
To find out where the authority for this business of
the federal government comes from, let's look to the opening
statement in the Constitution:
"WE THE PEOPLE of the United States, in order to
form a more perfect Union, establish justice,
insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common
defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure
the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our
Posterity, do ordain and establish this CONSTITU-
TION for the United States of America."
In large and showy letters, the Preamble shows that WE
THE PEOPLE granted power to the government. It was a novel
concept in a new type of government which was republican in
This new concept is fragile. It needs constant watching
by us to see that the government obeys the basic document.
We have been guilty of looking the other way. Is this one of
the reasons we have all been convinced that this is now a
democracy? (See Volume 1 of The Traitor Within the Gates.)
WE granted permission for the business of government.
It means you and I are the sovereigns and the government is
the servant. Don't you think it's about time we all began to
act as sovereigns? Sovereign is "superior to all others" and
"having supreme rank or power."
From the Encyclopedia Americana, we learn that Title I
of the National Security Act of 1947 established the Central
Intelligence Agency. It's duty was to correlate, evaluate
and disseminate intelligence having a bearing on national
security. Now that ought to give you a nice warm feeling!
You can check through the document from one end to the
other and you'll find NO permission from us to enact a law to
control, monitor or concern itself about national security.
This is an illegal act of Congress (what else is new?) and a
tremendous waste of our tax dollars. And from the garbage
which was revealed during the so called Iran/Contra hearings,
it's plain what unbridled power can do in DC! Why did no one
question the illegality of the National Security Act? Is it
because they are all in the same cesspool called government?
Does that description in the 'National Security Act'
magically grant authority to the US to lay mines in the
harbors of Nicaragua, or to run guns to Iran or Nicaraguan
rebels? How about publishing a how-to manual on assassin-
ations? Or the running of drugs into the United States as
reported on TV? How about interfering in internal affairs
of other countries? Can we justify the existence of such an
outfit when the preamble states that we ordained the
Constitution to 'establish justice'?
To look at it from another angle, can you read anything
in those duties which allows their budget to be secret? If
we check the Constitution for authority to spend money, all
money bills must originate in the House of Representatives.
(Art 1, Sec 7, cl 1) A little further on in the document, we
find that no money shall issue from the treasury except by an
appropriations bill. A statement of receipts and expendi-
tures SHALL be published from time to time. (Art 1, Sec 9,
When the word 'shall' appears in the Constitution, it's
a command. That means it will be done. It does not mean
that they can decide whether or not to accomplish the act.
Did you ever see a public statement of allocated money for
Perhaps they have a different copy of the Constitution
than we have. Are they now operating by some secret set of
rules we know nothing about? We are now at the point in time
that they don't think we are the sovereign any longer. They
are! In fact, they are so sure of it that the attitude has
now become the people and the Constitution be damned. We
will now do whatever we feel is necessary to run the
government. After all, who are you? What gives you the
right to challenge us? The arrogance we see each day on the
tube will substantiate that.
Again, at the risk of being redundant, let's look at the
Tenth Amendment once more:
The powers not delegated to the United States by
the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the
States, are reserved to the States respectively, or
to the people.
Doesn't take a degree in English to understand that.
The Tenth Amendment prohibits the government from assuming
any power not delegated or granted. The Fifth Amendment
command of due process of law binds the government to obey
the entire document.
Back to the first question -- where can we look to find
the authority to establish an organization like the CIA? Why
do you suppose the people at the federal level are not able
to understand the Tenth Amendment?
Maybe they've changed the Constitution. Just how can it
be changed? Can an order from the executive branch eliminate
constitutional restrictions? No. Can the Congress pass a
law saying any restriction on the federal government is no
longer binding? No again. Can an 'order' by a federal judge
at any level amend the Constitution? Absolutely not. It can
ONLY be changed through the Amendment process. ONLY if you
and I agree to the change through the ballot box. Did you
ever see an amendment proposal on any of our ballots asking
for permission to establish the CIA?
They do it because they are certain they are omnipotent.
Now they can do what they want. They have a few catch
phrases now that they feel will justify anything they attempt
. . they say it 'affects our national security'. It's in our
national interests. It's required because of urgent neces-
sity, they claim.
Now you wouldn't want to interfere with our national
security, would you? Goodness, we wouldn't want to be called
unpatriotic or worse! Yet does this somehow remove all the
constitutional restrictions we placed on the government? The
'newspeak' George Orwell spoke of in his book 1984 is today a
matter of governmental policy.
The supremacy clause orders ALL laws enacted to conform
with the power we granted in the Constitution.
"This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States
which shall be made in Pursuance thereof . . shall be the
supreme Law of the Land . . ." (Art 6, Sec 2)
That is one of the keys to constitutional authority.
EVERY law passed has to meet the criteria we established in
the basic document. They have NO authority to pass ANY
legislation which does not have a basis in the Constitution.
It makes no difference whether it's a matter of national
security or not. If national security is such an important
issue for our royalty in Washington, let them propose an
amendment to the Constitution and see if WE will agree to the
For these people to assume such a power (or any power)
is a crime. It is a violation of the oath we ordered for all
who work for government at any level. Has that oath simply
become a ritual with empty words which they recite when they
assume a position with government? See what happens when we
don't keep an eagle eye on what is being done in Washington
A wise man once said, "The more corrupt the state, the
more numerous the laws." He was Cornelius Tacitus, a Roman
senator and historian. (A.D. c.56-c.115). It's clear we now
qualify for the title of a corrupt state.
These people we have elected as our 'representatives'
have gone bonkers passing laws for which we gave no permis-
sion. Hey, we are being taken for fools! We have to exert
our power over these deceptive, greedy so and so's. We must
make government operate within the permission we granted.
I'd bet many citizens will say, "I don't want to get
involved!" When will they want to get involved? When we
have to line up to have our numbers tattooed on our arms? Or
when we have our photographs taken for national ID cards? If
we don't become involved, we'll get just what we deserve.
The government may argue that they have the authority
under the "necessary and proper" clause of the Constitution.
This is what they consider kind of a 'catch-all' section that
allows them to do anything. (Art 1, Sec 8, cl 17) This is a
weak bureaucratic argument which is pure gobbledygook. This
grants permission to Congress ONLY to implement powers that
were granted in the basic document. This clause does not
give the Congress latitude to write a law establishing a new
autonomous organization. Or anything else for that matter.
Hamilton, in Paper No. 25, makes a comment that fits in
exactly with this discussion about the CIA . . . "All violent
policy, contrary to the natural and experienced course of
human affairs, defeats itself." There can be little doubt
that the actions of the CIA, which we know about, are
contrary to the natural course of human affairs. Now, how
about the actions we don't know about?
Hamilton goes on in the same paper to criticize
politicos who violate our basic law: "Wise politicians will
be cautious about fettering the government with restrictions
that cannot be observed, because they know every breach of
fundamental laws, though dictated by necessity, impairs that
sacred reverence which ought to be maintained in the breasts
of rulers toward the constitution of a country, and forms a
precedent for other breaches where the same plea of necessity
does not exist at all, or is less urgent or palpable."
Our wise politicians, of which he spoke, are a thing of
the past. The first hundred or so years of our nation,
politicians abided by the dictates of the law we established.
Slowly, greedy and power hungry men were elected to be our
representatives. The precedences to exceed constitutional
authority were quietly started. A favorite trick of
politicians is to take two steps toward a desired but illegal
goal. If they are seriously challenged, they can take one
step backwards. This appeases the challenger and they are
one step closer to setting up the precedent. It's simple and
it works. We don't have to look far to see that is what has
Our Founding Fathers feared standing armies and were
adamant there should never be any in our republic. Yet today
we have an army of agents, not only in this country, but
around the world. And pulling tricks which are against the
very principles we sought when the Constitution was ratified.
At least, in the standing armies our Founding Fathers
worried about, you could tell the good guys from the bad
guys. They wore a uniform!
CIA expertise is supposed to be in the area of intell-
igence. Yet they show their ineptness by not knowing the
security level of our foreign embassies. I've heard it said
that they couldn't find their way out of a paper bag if
someone didn't show them the opening.
We are in such a state of affairs because we have been
hoodwinked by devious men in their ivory towers. And they
are experts in what they are doing. We must, for the very
survival of our nation, get our government to follow our
basic grant of power.
Quoting Hamilton in Paper No. 78: "There is no position
which depends on clearer principles than that every act of a
delegated authority, contrary to the tenor of the commission
under which it is exercised, is void." What they have done
is invalid. It's the seizing of authority and illegal.
Continuing, Hamilton goes on further: "To deny this
would be to affirm that the deputy is greater than his
principle; that the servant is above his master; that the
representative of the people are superior to the people
themselves; that men acting by virtue of powers may do not
only what their powers do not authorize, but what they
Now we must figure out what we are to do to eliminate
this unconstitutional organization and the illegal expenses
for its operation.
My first suggestion is to call the local offices of your
senators and representatives. Ask them where the authority
is for operating the CIA. Congress are the dudes who
established this outfit. Expect dead silence at the other
end of the phone! They will never have heard such a question
before your call.
Write to their offices at the cesspool in Washington.
You should write to the chairmen of the Senate and House
Intelligence Committees. I recommend you mail these letters
by certified mail. It wouldn't be the first time they have
ignored or lost an important piece of mail.
Another problem surfaces with the congressional post
office . . . they work by different rules and even though the
mail is certified, there is no assurance you will get a
Petitions for redress of grievances can be an effective
tool. An ASCII file of a petition is included in a later
chapter. Simply print it out on your printer. These people
must be buried with petitions! Only one or two petitions
would be annoying or laughable and very easily ignored.
They claim concern for our 'national security'. Why
didn't they have a civil defense program for Americans if we
had a nuclear attack? There are only shelters for our
'officials' and other high non-officials roaming around
Washington. Other than that, there is no civil defense
program . . . the annoying 'attention getting signal' on the
radio notwithstanding. Notice we don't hear that anymore?
What will be the next step if they are not challenged?
What will it be like in ten or twenty years for our children
if ignoring our Constitution continues? Maybe barbed wire
fences around anyone who protests their authority? Is that
the future for our posterity?
Readers who were in the service took an oath to defend
the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
It doesn't disappear when you leave the service. It was a
swearing to God to do what you promised when you took your
oath. Why aren't you doing it? We now have domestic enemies
coming out the kazoo.
We should all heed the words of Cicero who warned the
Romans just before the collapse of the empire . . . "Beware
of the traitor within the gates!"
Are you going to become involved now?
There is much talk about this outfit being involved in
the assassination of John Kennedy in spite of the whitewash
job of the Warren Commission.
Isn't it strange how our government can 'seal' important
papers concerning the assassination? What authority do they
use to hide something of this magnitude and keep it all
secret from the people who gave them the authority in the
first place? The new chief of the CIA appears on TV and
promises to review the secrecy of the JFK papers. HE can
review them? Is the CIA the outfit responsible for declaring
those papers secret? Drivel. There is no power granted by
us for such sleazy operations.
I wonder if the new CIA chief carries his orange crate
with him so he can reach the microphone?
Not too long ago, we had an Attorney General of the
United States make the statement that the Constitution gave
the President the authority to order the execution of the
head of another country. He probably had to be careful when
he shook his head . . . people nearby would have been able to
hear the rattle. Either he is and was extremely stupid or he
was certain the American people are idiots!
It was recently reported that Congress has allotted
several million dollars to 'eliminate' Saddam Huessin. Our
tax dollars at work again. Is this blood money?
If people as private citizens want to become mercen-
aries, that is their right. For a government to support
execution operations when there is no authority, is a crime.
No wonder there are people who want our Constitution done
away with so they can establish a government where we have no
say in it's operation.
How do they get away with these violations of the power
we ordained? The Constitution is not taught in our schools
anymore and is a deliberate scheme to prevent us from knowing
what is or is not allowed. All the obvious violations of our
authority substantiates that probability.
In about 1982, I believe, there was a disclosure on
national TV that the CIA was running drugs in from the Golden
Triangle (Laos, Cambodia & Vietnam) and then 'laundering' the
money in major banks in Australia. Was there any investiga-
tion by the Congress? None that I heard of, how about you?
Did the government sue the TV station for libel? All
negatives. Agents that want to bring out the dirt suddenly
disappear or die mysteriously . . . Coincidence?
Now a new drug scheme is unraveling . . . this one in
Arkansas and supposedly with the full knowledge of Governor
Bill Clinton, yes the current candidate for president. My
feeling is that little George knows all about this operation
also. It involves a secret airstrip near a town called Mena.
This town of Mena is near Oklahoma with a population of 5000.
There a 5000 foot long concrete runway . . . hardly a crop
dusting strip! It is reported that secret operations since
1982 run guns and ammunition out of this strip and the planes
return loaded with drugs. Hey, doesn't this sound familiar?
TV reports are beginning to show that our famous outfit
of creeps (the CIA) operates this strip and 5 others in the
southwest. You see why they want us dumb, fat and happy?
County prosecutors all agree there is a major coverup of
covert activities from this strip which will go straight to
the door of Clinton. Every effort to close the airstrip has
failed and been stopped. A Mr and Mrs Hendricks had their
son killed in one of the secret flights from Mena to Angola
in Africa. They ran into the veritable stonewall when they
tried to find out what their son was doing and who he was
flying the plane for. And, not surprisingly, covert
activities from Mena continue. Planes continue to land and
takeoff from Mena, Arkansas. More on this as it is unfolds.
How about the latest revelations that the CIA used the
international bank known as the bank of crooks and criminals
as a conduit for their illegal money? That's BCCI bank and
the details are just coming out in the media. Stay tuned.
Studying our Constitution would be an enormous help to
all citizens. There's no need to memorize it. Nevertheless,
you should know where to find their authority for what
they're doing and what the limits are. They have been able
to get away with all these illegal acts because they consider
you and me as country bumpkins. This is probably the reason
that our schools today don't even study the basic document.
Why should you have the knowledge to challenge these
There have been numerous government workers questioned
in US district courts who will admit they have taken an oath
to uphold the Constitution yet don't know what the document
says or means.
How high up into the upper echelons of government this
ignorance of our Constitution goes, we can only guess. At
one point, the lack of knowledge has to become intentional.
There are many good people working for the government
who would like to see all the misuses and abuses of consti-
tutional power halted. Not everyone who works for the
government is power hungry or crooked. These people could
help stem this abuse but they are also afraid for their jobs.
The real problem is that if it isn't stopped, no one will
have a job to worry about. Is this what's ahead for us?
