Criminalizing the Innocent, Indemnifying the Guilty
Thomas A. Droleskey
Not much time needs to be spent on pointing out what should be fairly obvious once again: that we are living in a time of great chastisements, both in the realm of the world-at-large and from the counterfeit church of conciliarism.
The past two presidential administrations, those of Caesar Georgii Bushus Ignoramus and of Caesar Barackus Obamus Ignoramus, have taken the absolute insanity of "political correctness" into land beyond the outer limits, beyond even the twilight zone, traveling even way beyond the "brave new world" of Aldous Huxley or of George Orwell's 1984.
To wit, the government of the United States of America is run by people who are so bereft of common sense on even the level of pure naturalism that it is impossible for them to say that the principal external threats to the safety of American citizens here and abroad are posed by disciples of the false religion of Mohammedanism. This is why a monstrous policy of invasive, abusive airport inspections has been implemented that criminalize the innocent while more or less indemnifying those who should be the principal suspects. No one has the political courage or the will to say the following: "We must use sophisticated methods of profiling to target specific passengers for inspection without punishing innocent, law-abiding citizens, including infants, for the actions of those whose fidelity to their false religious beliefs commands them to kill the innocent at will."
Similarly, neither the administrations of former President George Walker Bush or of President Barack Hussein Obama have had the courage to face the massive threats to our national security posed by the wave of illegal immigration into this country from Mexico. Although many of these illegal immigrants want a better way of life economically than they can get in Mexico, more than a handful, truth be told, are engaging in wanton criminal activities of a violent nature once they commit the crime of entering the country illegally.
This is true in the State of Arizona, which has taken a very reasonable and prudent measure to protect itself from this criminal activity (see Good Catholic Common Sense Must Prevail, part 1 and Good Catholic Common Sense Must Prevail, part 2). What has the administration of Barack Hussein Obama and Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., chosen to do? It has chosen to file suit against the State of Arizona for daring to protect itself as officials of the Federal government of the United States of America refuse to protect our borders unless there is "comprehensive immigration reform" passed by the United States Congress.
Similarly, the State of Texas has taken to using its Department of Public Safety to fighting Mexican drug cartels along the Lone Star State's border with Mexico because the efforts of the National Guard reservists who have been sent there are hampered by the policies of the Obama-Biden administration, which seeks to cater to Spanish-speaking voters at the expense of our own national security, the very safety of our own citizens:
“I never thought that we’d be in this paramilitary type of engagement. It's a war on the border," said Captain Stacy Holland with the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Holland leads a fleet of 16 state-of-the-art helicopters that make up the aviation assets used by the Texas DPS to fight Mexican drug cartels.
In recent years, the cartels have become bolder and more ruthless.
They cross the border with AK-47s on their backs, wearing military camouflage. They recruit in prisons and schools on the American side. Spotters sit in duck blinds along the Rio Grande and call out the positions of the U.S. Border Patrol.
To combat the cartels, the Texas Department of Public Safety is launching a counterinsurgency.
Tactical strike teams send field intelligence they gather to Austin to a joint operation intelligence center, or JOIC in military terminology.
“It certainly is a war in a sense that we’re doing what we can to protect Texans and the rest of the nation from clearly a threat that has emerged over the last several years,” said Former FBI prosecutor Steve McCraw, who runs the undeclared "war."
And now that there is added pressure on the cartels, the drug runners are employing new techniques, known as a splash down. When the heat is on, they attempt to return to Mexico with the drugs, often times in broad daylight. And because the Texas law enforcement’s authority ends at the border -- in this case the river -- they even have time to put on their life jackets.
“The cartels may be ruthless, they may be vicious, they may be cowardly ... but they’re not stupid,” said McCraw. “They’ll adapt their tactics and recently they’ve adapted their tactics to utilize smaller loads, cross with rafts, stolen vehicles on our side.”
President Barack Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano have recently said the Mexican border is more secure now than it has been in 20 years, but some along this border strongly disagree.
"To suggest the southwest border is secure is ridiculous," said Holland. (America's Third War: Texas Strikes Back .)
Such is the unreal world inhabited by the naturalists of the "left" that it is impossible for them to admit that criminals they want to indemnify for one reason or another are actually criminals who threaten the security and the safety of American citizens. This is such an obvious political issue on the level of pure national self-interest that it is astounding, at least to me, that the naturalists of the "right" did not raise it in the recently concluded off-year Congressional elections. Ah, you see, Republicans, well, most of them, at least, are just as scared of "offending" Spanish-speaking voters as are the Democrats. Some of the naturalists of the "right" will complain about the problem of border security. None, however, has the courage to say that Barack Hussein Obama's abject dereliction of duty in protecting the borders of the United States of America to demonstrate solidarity with his own ideology of the "left" is itself an impeachable offense as one of the chief duties of any national chief executive is to secure his nation's borders and to protect his fellow citizens from real, not imagined, enemies, both foreign and domestic.
Who does United States Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano believe are the sources of "domestic terrorism"? You got. Us. Pro-life Americans. Americans who take seriously the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. Americans who criticize justly the draconian increase in the size, the scope and the power of the Federal government of the United States of America, especially by means of regulatory edicts issued by presidents and their political appointees that most in the Congress of the United States of America lack the desire and/or the will to stop. Who cares that these regulatory edicts are in violation of the actual text of the United States Constitution or that they are violations of the Natural Law principle of subsidiarity. Those who complain are potential sources of "domestic terrorism," not Mohammedans, whether they be attending a local mosque or have come to this country on a student visa or have posed as Mexicans to enter the country illegally in California or Arizona or New Mexico or Texas, and not the drug cartels that are killing innocent Americans in Texas at the present time. (See
All Hail! Caesar Obamus.) The troops that are fighting and dying to no good purpose in Afghanistan and who still stationed Iraq despite the official end of American combat operations there are needed to defend the American border with Mexico, and any candidate for the presidency in 2012 who does not raise this as an issue is as derelict as was Bush the Lesser and as is Caesar Obamus himself.
This utter insanity is compounded by the fact that incompetent agency, the Transportation Security Agency, which is now employing criminals with records of actual molestation to engage in the wholesale, "legally sanctioned" physical molestation of innocent American citizens who are attempting to board the human equivalent of cattle cars known as airplanes, has approved three illegal immigrants from Brazil for flight training as pilots of single engine airplanes (see Illegals Say TSA Approved Flight Training). Hello, out there in Transportation Security Agency-land, have you ever heard of a date called Tuesday, September 11, 2001?
Perhaps the coup de grace of the dereliction of duty to protect our country from her real enemies was given in United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on Wednesday, November 17, 2010, the Feast of Saint Gregory Thaumaturgus, when a jury found a known terrorist, Ahmed Ghailiani, a man who has the blood innocent Americans on his hand, was found not guilty of 284 of 285 charges brought against him. The decision by United States Attorney General Eric Holder, a complete prisoner of the "left" and its political correctness, to try such men in civilian courts is itself a telling commentary on the state of injustice within a world gone mad a as a result of the overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King wrought by the Protestant Revolt and the subsequent triumph of naturalism through the inter-related set forces that can be described as Judeo-Masonry.
Although I am a critic of the American invasion of Afghanistan, I am not opposed to the use of strategic forces to attack and/or to arrest those responsible for crimes against Americans. Regardless of the way in which Ahmed Ghailiani's arrest was made, he is a sworn enemy of the United States of America who has no business being tried in a civilian court of law with the full constitutional protections afforded known street criminals who beat their "raps" time and time again. This is beyond ludicrous.
However, there is a logic to all of the insanity. That logic is this, as I noted even on the very day of Tuesday, September 11, 2001 (see
We've Done This to Ourselves): Why should our public officials care about national security when they will not provide homeland security for the preborn? Those who believe that we can put to death the innocent preborn under cover of the civil law in order to protect the nonexistent "right" of women to butcher the natural fruit of their wombs will wind up believing that their very nation must surrender its Natural Law of self-defense in order to protect the nonexistent "right" of foreigners deemed to be "oppressed" to enter the country and/or to be afforded the full legal protection and privileges as those accorded to American citizens. Yes, the innocent must be criminalized--and put to death in the case of the innocent preborn--while the guilty must be indemnified with one lame excuse after another.
Empires come and go--including ours. Empires frequently collapse from within. Ours is collapsing from within and so few people seem to recognizing that this is the case or seem to care. It is collapsing as the result of the very false, naturalistic, anti-Incarnational, semi-Pelagian, religiously indifferentist principles upon which its house of cards was founded.
Those who undermine the national security of the United States of America by supporting the daily slaughter of the innocent preborn, about which no Catholic has the option to be silent or indifferent as no country is "great" or deserves to be "blessed" by the true God of Divine Revelation when it sanctions crimes that cry out to Heaven for vengeance, may escape justice in this life. They will not escape it when they die, compounding their sins against the innocent preborn by their dereliction of duty to preserve the very security of their nation where license has long replaced even any natural sense of true liberty as taught by the pagans of yore, no less that true standard of liberty won for us on the wood of the Holy Cross by our Divine Redeemer, Christ the King, as He shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood to redeem us.
No, such as United States Representative Charles Bernard Rangel, a Freemason and a Catholic who is in perfectly good standing in the structures of the counterfeit church of concilairism who faces censure by the entire body of the United States House of Representatives for egregious violations of Congressional ethics and the very tax laws that he helped to write (violations outlined in Becoming What They Once Opposed), who support baby-killing and who play the game of political correctness will have to reckon with Christ the King as their Divine Judge at the moment of their deaths:
Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to defend the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those whose lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among whom we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother's womb. And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 30, 1930.)
Most unlike our petty caesars and caesarettes of Modernity, Our Divine Judge, Christ the King, does not criminalize the innocent or indemnify the guilty, a thought that should make us tremble (as noted in
Saint Alphonsus, Please, Go Ahead, Make Clint Eastwood's Day for Him) as we plead for mercy with Our Lord in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance as frequently as we can. There is no "appeals court" from the Particular Judgment. Those who are the beneficiaries of God's mercy will rejoice. Those who have persisted in a state of final impenitence will flee from the sight of their Divine Judge as descend into hell for all eternity. We must pray constantly that we are not counted among the guilty as we, being weak vessels of clay, have the tendency to be as lax on our consciences as the caesars and caesarettes of Modernity are in protecting the preborn and our national borders.
The ultimate solution rests, as most of you know, in the conversion of men and their nations to the Social Reign of Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen. Catholicism is indeed the one and only foundation of personal and social order. If you never remember anything else that I write, I ask you to remember that as it is nothing other than simple Catholic truth.
The conversion of our own beloved nation depends in no small measure on our own daily conversion away sin as we seek to grow in holiness with every beat of our hearts, consecrated as they must be to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. Every Rosary we pray helps to plant the seeds for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and thus the restoration of Christendom in the world and of the Church Militant on the face of this earth. Never underestimate the power of our simple prayers and the simple performance of our daily duties as members of the Mystical Body of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to plant seeds whose flowering may not occur until many years after we have died and have faced our Particular Judgment.
Let us turn to Our Lady of Guadalupe to ask her intercession for justice to prevail for the sake of our nation, whose conversion is near and dear to her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, a nation that has been entrusted to her very patronage under the title of her Immaculate Conception.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
Viva Cristo Rey! Vivat Christus Rex!
