INDICTMENT FOR THE FOURTH ESTATE
By Paul Cappadona
The New York Times did, “great harm to America,” said President Bush blasting the Times a day after the House Homeland Security Chairman Pete King said that the Times committed treason and should face criminal prosecution. Will this just blow over and be forgotten like all the other crimes committed against this one and only peoples republic?
The New York Times and soon others revealed the top secret program of follow-the-money which in the past has led to real accomplishments, including the arrest of Hanbali who master-minded the Bali bombing that murdered 202 people. This is the second time the Times has revealed a top secret terror tracking program despite White House pleadings. Our Home Land Security chairman, Mr. King, sent a letter to Alberto Gonzales urging him to launch a criminal investigation. King stated their activities were shameful and urged that the Times were aiding the cause of our enemies. That was not the right way to initiate an investigation.
Bill O’Reilly stated that the Times used its power and constitutional protection to work against the administration’s anti-terror strategies. Can you find the errors of thought in that statement? O’Rielly went on to say, “There is no question that some media and politicians are playing politics with the security of the American people.” Does the liberty guaranteed by the Constitution mean unrestrained license?
What can we do if an enemy sets up a “press” to manipulate elections, news, and other information in order to promote its ends or to subvert our way of life? Shouldn’t that be considered treason or sedition? Whenever the “press” or other media over-steps the bounds of their job which is to offer news, information, and entertainment to the public, it becomes an un-elected power instead of a service. Whenever the press wields un-elected power, it transforms into, as they like to call themselves, the “Fourth Estate.” No longer delivering news, they now illegally shape events at every level of life. It appears their conduct and language is directed against the public order, safety, and tranquility of state. This constant ridicule and stirring up of disorder of the very country in which they claim to serve, is the meaning of sedition. Sedition is a crime. Not only is there enough evidence of sedition to bring indictments, but there could also be a good case for conspiracy and treason.
Freedom of an honest press is a problem for our government, as it should be. The Bill of Rights tell us that Congress shall make no law, but if we read down a little further we find how to discipline the Fourth Estate in Article V.
Article VI declares, “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury…” We, the private citizens of these United States are the Grand Juries and Trial Juries. We can indict and if warranted, look into any possible crime and convict any law breakers including the media’s seditious abuse as the Fourth Estate. Remember, “The most important political office is that of the private citizen.”
If we shirk our responsibilities in preserving our freedoms we stand to lose them. Failure on our part amounts to a waiver of our rights and liberties. Treason is not only levying war against the United States but also giving aid to the enemies of freedom and/or comfort. Looking at the Constitution for the United States in sections 3 through 7, we find this same principal.
If we do not read the Constitution for ourselves, the media and our corrupt politicians stop right there just before “but” leading us to believe it’s the end of that sentence. However, if we just read on a little further it is made very clear.
Who indicts? Who convicts? We do! We do! The Grand Jury indicts, and the Trial or Petit Jury convicts! The power to indict and convict was never trusted to the government but rather was retained by the people. Not only can we take care of the treasons committed by the Fourth Estate but we can take care of the loose ends in all branches of our government, both State and Federal. The Grand Jury has the authority to investigate any corruption at a petition of grievances or even on their own suspicions.
Chief Justice Chase said, “You must not be satisfied by acting upon such cases only as may be brought before you by the district attorney, or by members of your body to whom knowledge of particular offences may have come. Your authority and your duty go much further. You may and you should, summon before you, officers of the government, and others whom you may have reason to believe possess information proper for your action, and examine them fully.”
As I was listening
to a talk show caller on the Rush Limbaugh show demanding that people
should be sent to prison over the Times treason, I heard an interesting
reply. Rush said not to hope or look for anyone going to prison as it
will not happen. More than likely Rush is right once again. I intently
listened for helpful solutions but heard none. If you want helpful solutions,
e-mail me for a Grand Jury Creed and together we can spread the word
and help put an end to the Fourth Estate.
