For what crime have I spent a year in a maximum security federal prison? For what crime have I lost my job, my home, and my reputation? For what crime have I lost every dollar I have ever earned—my entire savings and retirement?
Why, I have been accused of a federal crime—this is the presumption of innocence in America. In fact, I am not in federal prison afterall, only merely detained. This is not punishment, but rather permissible regulation. Indeed, War is Peace; Slavery is Freedom; Prison is Innocence.
I’m a somewhat educated man who always viewed American justice as a fair, adequate system. It is only recently through experiencing this unjust, horrific and corrupt system myself that I have learned the despicable truth—this punitive system is built to coerce guilty pleas and maximize slave labor for the prison industrial complex. Hell, a year ago I didn’t even know that pre-trial incarceration existed outside totalitarian regimes like North Korea.
Yet, here I am. Is this truly just? Does it make sense to completely destroy a man’s life simply because he has been accused of a crime? Is this REALLY the presumption of innocence? How can a man be properly reimbursed years of his life if found innocent? Pre-trial incarceration is a great gamble by the State—it’s the imposition of punishment and a presumption of guilt, whereby, if right, the government gets nothing. If wrong, the government has just incarcerated an innocent man for years and completely and totally destroyed his entire life beyond repair. Is this a worthwhile risk? Is this consistent with the notion of Justice? No honest individual could ever accept such treatment against one’s self nor apply Kant’s categorical imperative. Thus, it’s self-evident that such treatment is unreasonable, inconsistent with the ideals of a free society, and must be REJECTED.
If my fellow Texans knew that the federal government routinely kidnaps its own citizens in the dead of night, at the point of a gun, and immediately brings them before a judge who declares them guilty and sentences them to indefinite incarceration—if my fellow Texans knew the full extent of this disgusting treacherous disregard for the Constitution—they would revolt against this tyranny and overthrow the federal government. I’m not sure how many people the FBI have, but it isn’t enough.
The government will continue to terrorize the people, one-at-a-time, in a vicious divide-and-conquer campaign until the American people unite and stand together against this injustice: E Pluribus Unum. 15 agents can easily overpower an individual, but no federal agency can overpower the American people. Together, we are unstoppable—we must rekindle the fear of the people that all governments must have.
After spending my entire life fighting terrorism from the Taliban to Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab, and ISIS, the greatest terrorist organization in the world is the Federal Bureau of Investigation. After the fall of the mafia and real organized crime, the FBI turned to terrorizing Martin Luther King, Jr. and sabotaging the Civil Rights Movement. Today, the FBI spends its time and budget creating crimes and entrapping American citizens as well as citizens across the world: The FBI agent and informant initiate contact, persuade and convince an individual to commit a crime; they teach him exactly how to commit the crime, and then once he’s been entirely setup they arrest him for it. A job well-done. This is NOT law enforcement as federal agencies are unworthy of the title—they are terrorists, plain and simple. The FBI provides absolutely NO benefit to society as states and local (REAL) law enforcement are perfectly capable of policing themselves without federal interference. Yet, through the unintentional abuse of the commerce clause, the Feds can claim jurisdiction on anything and launch campaigns across the country solely to waste taxpayer dollars terrorizing the people with mass incarceration and uncanny seizure of assets through civil forfeiture as the Feds literally pillage and plunder America.
The FBI is to terror as the federal prosecutor is to racketeering. There is no criminal enterprise in the world as corrupt and ruthlessly vicious as the American federal prosecutor. Federal prosecutors are the most powerful people in the United States—any two prosecutors can file charges and lock people in cages indefinitely. Their decisions and discretion are non-reviewable, unchallengeable, and entirely immune from accusations of wrongdoing. The legal system in America was designed to give full power and complete autonomy to federal prosecutors to do as they wish with no accountability; no oversight; no checks and balances. Just unchecked, raw power. Trick a judge with fake or non-existent probable cause—cherrypicked searches and chats and faulty tech that the old judge does not understand—and a federal prosecutor can strip ANY American of his citizenship, of the entirety of the Bill of Rights, of every single liberty. Prosecutors are power-hungry, soulless demons devoid of any conscious or moral compass; they arrest, incarcerate, and persecute simply because they can. Facts and evidence have no place in the modern criminal justice system.
No country should ever permit the FBI or federal prosecutors as US diplomats—this would be akin to allowing ISIS an embassy and safe haven to conduct terror against your people. Likewise, to extradite any person to the United States is an act of inhumane torture—your citizen stands no chance against the federal government and will be viciously tortured until he pleads guilty and does life in prison. Additionally, no country—Iran, North Korea—should EVER accept UN inspectors until the hypocritical United States federal government submits to UN inspectors of human rights abuses in its prisons.
Someone has to stand up to this incredulous injustice, to this unruly beast, this terrorizing bully that is the federal government. Someone has to stand up for what is right and demand freedom for the slaves.
Therefore, I intend to run for Congress here in New York’s 7th district and become the next Speaker of the House. The long-time incumbent Velázquez must step aside and give her constituents the speakership.
I intend to run under the platform of criminal justice reform as I will end mass incarceration and the War on Drugs including the perverse incentives it provides. As a society, we must pivot from “tough on crime” to compassionate, forgiving human beings who seek to rehabilitate over punish and uplift the poor souls born into this world without privilege, into difficult environments. You cannot call yourself a good Christian, a good Muslim, a good Jew, or even a good person while simultaneously holding values contrary to the core tenets of forgiveness and compassion. Should a man really spend a decade in federal prison for buying drugs? 5 years in prison is almost always too harsh a sentence let alone the typical 10, 15, 20 year mandatory minimums that exist for most non-violent, victimless drug crimes.
I will dismantle the federal government brick-by-brick, agency-by-agency until nothing remains. I will repeal all federal laws. I am the harbinger of death for tyranny and will never permit a single penny more to be spent on drugs, federal “law enforcement”, or federal prosecutors; All will be stripped of their power over man, and this power rightfully returned to the states and local governments. The corruption of the federal government will come to a screeching halt. America stands for democracy and freedom—not slavery and oppression.
