The White House Fears An Attempt On Obama’s Life If He Tries To Hold Bush-Era Criminals Accountable

President Obama fears an assassination attempt if his administration tries to prosecute apparent crimes from the George W. Bush terms, according to a new book by a veteran Washington, D.C., lawyer and journalist.

In fact, the president’s security plan has been significantly enhanced for 2013, reports Andrew Kreig in Presidential Puppetry: Obama, Romney, and Their Masters. Obama’s dismal performance in the first presidential debate against Republican nominee Mitt Romney might have been driven in part, Kreig writes, by a report from military aides earlier that day of a plot against the president.

Released in paperback on July 26, Presidential Puppetry is the first book to encompass the Obama second term and one of the first to examine the 2012 elections.

  • I guess Obama has no fear of another Bush taking office. That must be the vetting of the NSA.

    The following is interesting in its attempt to brush away all the bad law since since the illegitimate 2000 election. If it is doable, then Sandra Day O’Conner should make sure it happens as her only redemption.

    This also has the benefit of keeping another disastrous Bush out of office.

    Sandra Day O’Conner should correct her politically motivated disservice/injustice/treason and testify in order to regain justice and rule of law which the following offers, if it truly is a serious attempt. If it is not a serious attempt, then Sandra Day O’Conner can lead a serious effort:

    COMMENT of U.S. Supreme Court Reporter Jeffrey Toobin :-

    ” To know Justice O’Connor as I am privileged to do is to know that the word ‘regret’ never passes her lips,” Toobin said. ” Did she regret her vote in Bush v. Gore? Did she regret the Bush presidency? You bet she did, and you bet she does.” 20apr13

    ”Maybe the court should have said, ‘we’re not going to take it, goodbye,”‘ O’Connor told the Chicago Tribune editorial board, in reference to the controversial Bush v. Gore decision resolving a dispute over the 2000 election in George W. Bush’s favor. “It turned out the election authorities in Florida hadn’t done a real job there and kind of messed it up. And probably the Supreme Court added to the problem at the end of the day.”

    IMPEACHMENT OF U.S. PRESIDENT ALBERT GORE, Jr._REF: U.S. Supreme Ct_Case No. 00-949

    Constitutional Grounds for the Impeachment and Fraud Upon the Supreme Court, et al…

    (Editor’s note: Only when America’s legally elected president, Al Gore, is returned to office and subjected to required impeachment proceedings, can constitutional authority in the United States be re-established. Toward that end, all actions of the Bush (43) presidency are to be declared “null and void,” all treaties abrogated, all executive actions declared unlawful and all actions including but not limited to the establishment of the United States as a criminal empire undone. The subsequent election of Barak Obama as president thus has no legal standing. Gordon Duff and Lee Wanta)

    Before the Supreme Court of the United States

    1. IMPROPER FAILURE TO REPORT,
    2. CONTINUOUS ABSENCE FROM HIS U.S. PRESIDENTIAL DUTIES,
    3. REFUSAL TO ACCEPT THE ELECTORAL VOTE DECISION OF THE AMERICAN
    POPULACE MAJORITY,
    4. CONTINUING VIOLATIONS OF PUBLIC TRUST AND EMPLOYMENT, WITHOUT DUE
    PROCESS, INCLUDING ATTEMPTS TO SUBVERT THE U.S. CONSTITUTION.

    U.S. CONSTITUTIONAL CONSIDERATIONS
    The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution for the U.S.A. [hereafter the U.S. Constitution, or Constitution] are jointly the contract of specific performance between the U.S. citizens as the parties on one side of the agreement, and the U.S. government, its officers, employees, agents, and subcontractors as the parties on the other side of the agreement.
    The duty to take care is affirmative. So is the duty faithfully to execute the office. A President must carry out the obligations of his office diligently and in good faith. The elective character and political role of a President make it difficult to define faithful exercise of his powers in the abstract. A President must make policy and exercise discretion. This discretion necessarily is broad, especially in emergency situations, but the constitutional duties of a President impose limitations on its exercise.
    The “take care” duty emphasizes the responsibilty of a President for the overall conduct of the executive branch, which the Constitution vests in him alone. He must take care that the executive is so organized and operated that this duty is preformed.
    The duty of a President to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution” to the best of his ability includes the duty not to abuse his powers or transgress their limits — not to violate the rights of citizens, such as those guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, and not to act in derogation of powers vested elsewhere by the Constitution.
    Please Note : – Each of the thirteen American impeachments involved charges of misconduct incompatible with the official position of the officeholder. This conduct falls into three broad categories:
    1. exceeding the constitutional bounds of the powers of the office in derogation of the powers of another branch of government;
    2. behaving in a manner grossly incompatible with the proper function and purpose of the office; and
    3. employing the power of the office for an improper purpose or for personal gain.

    Definition : Political – Pertaining or relating to the policy or the administration of government, state or national …. As political theories … seek to determine or control its public policy …
    (Black’s Law 6th Ed.)

    Considerations and Background :

    “ The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

    Title 18 USC 3 : Accessory after the fact Whoever, knowing that an offense against the United States has been committed, receives, relieves, comforts or assists the offender in order to hinder or prevent his apprehension, trial or punishment, is an accessory after the fact.

    Title 18 USC 241 : Conspiracy Against Rights

    Title 18 USC 242 : Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law

    Title 18 USC 1951 : – Interference with commerce by threats or violence

    (2) The term “extortion” means the obtaining of property (our Civil Rights including our time and our right of Due Process of Law is our Property) from another, with his consent, induced by wrongful use of actual or threatened force, violence, or fear, or under of official right.

    Title 42 USC 1986 : Action for Neglect to Prevent

    Justice Joseph Story wrote :

    ” Not but that crimes of a strictly legal character fall within the scope …; but that it has a more enlarged operation, and reaches, what are aptly termed political offenses, growing out of personal misconduct, or gross neglect, or usurpation, or habitual disregard of the interest in the discharge of the duties of political office. These are so various in their character, and so indefinable in their actual involutions, that it is almost impossible to provide systematically for them by positive law. They must be examined upon very broad and comprehensive principles of diplomacy of public policy and duty.

    They must be judged of by the habits, and rules, and principles of diplomacy, or departmental operations and arrangements, or parliamentary practice, of executive customs and negotiations, of foreign, as well as domestic political movements; and in short, by a great variety of circumstances, as well those, which aggravate, as those, which extenuate, or justify the offensive acts, which do not properly belong to the judicial character in the ordinary administration of justice, and are far removed from the reach fo municipal jurisprudence.”

    If the public official refuses to provide the contracted public service (e.g., justice) in compliance with the U.S. Constitution, then he/she must be imprisoned. Otherwise, the public service is undermined and rendered ineffective. [ MLR-C4]

    “…those offences which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated POLITICAL, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself.”

    “It has too often happened that powers delegated for the purpose of promoting the happiness of a community have been perverted to the advancement of the personal emoluments of the agents of the people; but the powers of the President are to well guarded and checked to warrant this liberal aspersion.”

    NSA Whistleblower: NSA Spying On – and Blackmailing – Top Government Officials and Military Officers
    Posted on June 20, 2013 by WashingtonsBlog

    Whistleblower Says Spy Agency Targeting Top American Leaders

    NSA whistleblower Russel Tice – a key source in the 2005 New York Times report that blew the lid off the Bush administration’s use of warrantless wiretapping – told Peter B. Collins on Boiling Frogs Post (the website of FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds)
    http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2013/06/19/podcast-show-112-nsa-whistleblower-goes-on-record-reveals-new-information-names-culprits/ :

    Tice: Okay. They went after–and I know this because I had my hands literally on the paperwork for these sort of things–they went after high-ranking military officers; they went after members of Congress, both Senate and the House, especially on the intelligence committees and on the armed services committees and some of the–and judicial. But they went after other ones, too. They went after lawyers and law firms. All kinds of–heaps of lawyers and law firms. They went after judges. One of the judges is now sitting on the Supreme Court that I had his wiretap information in my hand. Two are former FISA court judges. They went after State Department officials. They went after people in the executive service that were part of the White House–their own people. They went after antiwar groups. They went after U.S. international–U.S. companies that that do international business, you know, business around the world. They went after U.S. banking firms and financial firms that do international business. They went after NGOs that–like the Red Cross, people like that that go overseas and do humanitarian work. They went after a few antiwar civil rights groups. So, you know, don’t tell me that there’s no abuse, because I’ve had this stuff in my hand and looked at it. And in some cases, I literally was involved in the technology that was going after this stuff.

    McGovern also said:

    In a speech on March 21, second-term Obama gave us a big clue regarding his concept of leadership – one that is marked primarily by political risk-avoidance and a penchant for “leading from behind”: “Speaking as a politician, I can promise you this: political leaders will not take risks if the people do not demand that they do. You must create the change that you want to see.”

    John Kennedy was willing to take huge risks in reaching out to the USSR and ending the war in Vietnam. That willingness to take risks may have gotten him assassinated, as James Douglass argues in his masterful JFK and the Unspeakable.

    Martin Luther King, Jr., also took great risks and met the same end. There is more than just surmise that this weighs heavily on Barack Obama’s mind. Last year, pressed by progressive donors at a dinner party to act more like the progressive they thought he was, Obama responded sharply, “Don’t you remember what happened to Dr. King?”

    …….

    Wellstone and King did not have the power that Obama has. To be equivalent, he should have named John F. Kennedy. And, then Obama should release Kennedy’s remaining documents for the world to know.

    Magic Bullet, My Ass!

    by Len Hart, the Existentialist Cowboy

    I once spent several hours with a famous witness to the murder of JFK —Rosemary Willis, often called the little girl in the red dress. She is easy to spot in the Zapruder films, running along the south side of Elm street just ahead of her father, Phil Willis. Phil Willis was taking 35mm slide films of the motorcade. Rosemary is seen running ahead and, suddenly, stopping! Rosemary showed me her father’s slides and a double-page center-spread from one of the Willis photos depicting the Grassy Knoll.

    Her father’s photos had appeared in Look Magazine. One of the photos became a double-page spread. Rosemary and I placed the spread on a light table beside the original photo which had only recently been released by the FBI. Interestingly, those photos were seized AFTER Look had published.

    “Do you notice anything unusual’, she asked me.

    I looked again! It hit me like a brick! In the original slide there was NO train visible between the columns of the pergola.

    But the train was CLEARLY visible in the Look magazine spread. Why? Rosemary explained that AFTER Look had published its piece the FBI came calling. They SEIZED all of Willis’ original photos. When she showed those photos to me, they had only recently been released, having been in FBI possession for years. The FBI –playing the role of ‘Big Bro’ –did not want people to verify that there had, indeed, been a train on the tracks at the very time that the fatal bullets were being fired.

    But why?

    Then I recalled the ‘tramps’ who had been rousted earlier while hanging out in box cars behind the Grassy Knoll. Those tramps, as you recall, included Frank Sturgis and, the man whom I believe lead a team of assassins –E. Howard Hunt. As a result of my time spent discussing this with Rosemary, I became increasingly convinced that a team of shooters had targeted JFK; the box cars, the area behind the picket fence became a secured staging area.

    Incidentally, just prior to the shooting George H.W. Bush was photographed with his hands in his pocket ‘hanging around’ the front entrance of the TSBD.

    AA Exposes Bush’s ‘Big Lie’: Flight 11 DID NOT FLY on 911!

    by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

    American Airlines is the source for information that AA Flights 11 (North Tower) and 77 (Pentagon) did not fly on 911. If neither flew on 911, the Bush ‘theory’ is a lie. If the Bush ‘theory’ is a lie, there remains only one explanation and that is: 911 was an inside job given a green-light by Bush himself.

    These flights are critical to the the government’s crumbling cover up! Conan Doyle, the brilliant creator of the character Sherlock Holmes, said: “When you have eliminated the impossible whatever remains however implausible must be the truth!” Bush’s official conspiracy theory of 911 is not only impossible, it’s absurd and insulting to intelligent people!

    The Bush Conspiracy Theory is impossible! And it’s a Lie.

    ………..

    If Obama never does the right thing for all of us and also allows another Bush to have a reign of terror, then I am all for Sandra Day O’Conner correcting her and the Supreme Court’s horrendous illegality in 2000 and getting Al Gore back into his Presidency to save the day…the rule of law…the planet…and us.

    I like this idea.

    The White House Fears An Attempt On Obama’s Life If He Tries To Hold Bush-Era Criminals Accountable

    snip

    Released in paperback on July 26, Presidential Puppetry is the first book to encompass the Obama second term and one of the first to examine the 2012 elections.

    Kreig’s primary thesis is that elites from both political parties have failed everyday Americans on the economy, privacy, civil rights, national security, and a host of other fundamental issues that are supposed to under gird our democracy. Kreig reports that voting machines controlled by private entities put our election integrity at risk. And he shows that neither party has the fortitude to fix a justice system that has gone wildly off track, perhaps most famously in the political prosecution of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.

    Andrew Kreig said…

    Thanks for the comments and interest. Kindly let me respond to a couple points and offer five free books to those who’d like to research further. Regarding Prof. Judy’s question, the fear by the president-elect’s transition team was of a “revolt” by unspecified authorities without a specific threat. The gist is that top executives are more vulnerable than widely perceived to a variety of threats and not simply the crazed lone gunman most often feared. The greatest fear involved the potential reaction by security forces if prosecutions were undertaken regarding torture. I’d like to make this research easier to access for those most interested. The first two readers here to write can obtain a free print copy of the book. The next three may obtain an electronic copy for free. Kindly write me at info@EagleViewDC.com for the contest, or with any additional questions. I’d appreciate any other speaker gatherings that I can coordinate around what I hope will be a visit to Madison the evening of Aug. 22. — Andrew
