Sheriffs show up to the White House and one of them whines and bawls over being “curbed” in the criminal, predatory “asset forfeiture,” thieving and robbing he does at any whim, he being no more than a leader of a criminal band of thugs in uniform, unbound by law and due process. This sheriff is like unto those monsters who the President condemned in his inaugural who for “far too long” have been elite “reaping the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.” These law enforcement folks, sheriffs, all then lie about asset forfeiture when Trump asks about it. Shameful. I wish Richard Mack had been there to put these guys in their place.
Trump was right in his inaugural speech when he said:
“For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.
“That all changes starting right here and right now because this moment is your moment, it belongs to you.
“It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country.
“What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.
“January 20th, 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.
“The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.“
Just after the criminal US Department of Justice won its victory in lobbying in Utah for the state legislature to put back into force the Bill of Rights trashing asset forfeiture legislation, citizens groups began to report the criminality of thugs in badges abusing the people. An antiques dealer, flying out of Salt Lake City International Airport with nearly $30,000 in cash in route to the NorthWest had his “asset” of all that cash confiscated and stolen by this criminal class of mafia wearing government badges. These “law enforcement” criminals let him know that he couldn’t have that much cash unless he was a drug dealer. He was not met with due process proving criminal activity. He had not been convicted in a court by a jury of his peers. Just on a whim, his precious fruit of his labor was stolen, ruthlessly, and he had no recourse. This is an abomination. Asset forfeiture must be abolished. “Law enforcement” in many cases throughout the land is of that exact criminal ilk described by the president as already quoted above.
It is a deep tragedy that the issue with drugs is prohibition. Prohibition and keeping drugs illegal only keeps a black market which keeps profits high, keeps “law enforcement” with an excuse to be militant and have big budget, and the CIA loves keeping up the massive importation of narcotics, for they are the largest drug cartel in north America. You can see Bill Clinton as a deer in headlights in the opening of this documentary when one of the most gutsy of the press core, there since FDR, stood and confronted him regarding the Mena, Arkansas airport, CIA drug running operation.
