Should the USA have a King or a President?

By | December 5, 2008

Should the USA have a King or a President?That’s what this boils down to. If America is going to have a King, then sure, he can imprison anyone he wants for as long as he wants for any reason (like, for instance, the person could expose a crime committed by himself or someone in his throne room). A dictator could lock someone up or have them killed for no reason at all. Otherwise, all people have the right to a speedy trial and we only lock people up when there is evidence that they have done something wrong.

The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to decide the most fundamental question yet concerning executive power in the age of terror: Can the president order the indefinite military detention of people living in the United States? The case concerns Ali al-Marri, the only person on the American mainland being held as an enemy combatant, at the Navy brig in Charleston, S.C. Mr. Marri, a citizen of Qatar, was legally in the United States when he was arrested in December 2001 in Peoria, Ill., where he was living with his family and studying computer science at Bradley University. … The case, which will probably be argued in the spring, will present the Obama administration with several difficult strategic choices. It can continue to defend the Bush administration’s expansive interpretation of executive power, advance a more modest one or short-circuit the case by moving it to the criminal justice system. … “Since the nation’s founding,” the brief said, “persons lawfully residing in this country have correctly understood that they can be imprisoned for suspected wrongdoing only if the government charges them with a crime and tries them before a jury.” – nyt

    PLEASE GET YOUR FELLOW CHICAGO BLOGERS “ON THE CASE”. THANK YOU!

    Here’s my letter:

    November 25th, 2008

    To: Randall Samborn and Attorneys of

    United States Attorney’s Office
    Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division
    219 S. Dearborn St., 5th Floor
    Chicago, IL 60604

    RE: FORGERY OF GOVERNMENT DOCUMENT

    Dear Mr Samborn and Attorneys,

    It has come to my attention that a forged government document is being displayed on an internet website which is registered in your jurisdiction. The website is http://fightthesmears.com and the document is the alleged certification of birth of Barack Obama. The owner of this website,

    Obama for America
    233 N. Michigan Ave
    Apt 2416
    Chicago, Illinois 60601,

    claims that the document is genuine and is engaging in a conspiracy to defraud the citizens of the United States. With the forged government document and the associated conspiracy, the owners of the website stand to fraudulently gain political power and wealth at the expense of the truth and the American people.

    Here is an internet link to an expert on document forgeries who is commenting on this fraudulent document found on the FIGHTTHESMEARS website: http://www.obamaforgery.com/

    Here is an internet link to more facts about the forged document:

    Your department, of course has jurisdiction under the Interstate Commerce clause and other articles of our Constitution and the U.S. code, with your department having the legal authority to investigate such crimes. Please do investigate these evidences and facts which alone are sufficient “probable cause” to seek court orders and further investigative authorization.

    I encourage you and your associates to uphold your sworn duties to the American people, enforce the laws, and defend the nation from all enemies, foreign and domestic. What will history say of your office, if it finds you derelict in duty; where you should have acted but did not?

    I am willing to sign any complaint or paperwork required by your office. I look forward to your timely response. Thank you.

    Most Sincerely,

    Kerry J Hodgkinson

    The prime order of persons is irrelevant.
    A MONARCH (King or Queen) is a FIGUREHEAD only.

    The duty of a Monarch is to add continuity, irrespective of political allegiance, to all
    citizens as equally as possible. Thus when Government of BLUE GREEN RED OR YELLOW Parties change, there is a continued citizen FIGUREHEAD.

    In the United States of America, the Constitution is as the FIGUREHEAD.
    There should be no change to this, because it has and will stand the test of time.
    Monarchs as individuals do not always prove worthy.
