America’s First Black President is a traitor to his race and also to justice.

Obama has permitted the corrupt US Department of Justice (sic), over which he wields authority, to overturn the ruling of a US Federal Court of Appeals that prisoners sentenced illegally to longer terms than the law permits must be released once the legal portion of their sentence is served. The DOJ, devoid of all integrity, compassion, and sense of justice, said that “finality” of conviction was more important than justice. Indeed, the US Justice (sic) Department’s motto is: “Justice? We don’t need no stinkin’ justice!”

Alec Karakatsanis, a civil rights attorney and co-founder of Equal Justice Under Law, tells the story here:

The concept of “finality” was an invention of a harebrained Republican conservative academic lionized by the Republican Federalist Society. In years past conservatives believed—indeed, still do—that the criminal justice system coddles criminals by allowing too many appeals against their unlawful convictions. The appeals were granted by judges who thought that the system was supposed to serve justice, but conservatives demonized justice as something that enabled criminals. A succession of Republican presidents turned the US Supreme Court into an organization that only serves the interests of private corporations. Justice is nowhere in the picture.

Appeals Court Judge, James Hill, a member of the court that ruled that prisoners did not have to serve the illegal portion of their sentences, when confronted with the Obama/DOJ deep-sixing of justice had this to say:

“A judicial system that values finality over justice is morally bankrupt.”

Obama’s DOJ says that there are too many black prisoners illegally sentenced to be released without upsetting the crime-fearful white population. According to Obama’s Justice (sic) Department, the fears of brainwashed whites take precedence over justice. Judge Hill said that the DOJ “calls itself, without a trace of irony, the Department of Justice.”

Judge Hill added: We used to call such systems as people sitting in prison serving sentences that were illegally imposed “gulags.” “Now we call them the United States.”

America is a gulag. We are ruled by a government that is devoid of all morality, all integrity, all compassion, all justice. The government of the United States stands for one thing and one thing only: Evil.

It is just as Chavez told the United Nations in 2006 referring to President George W. Bush’s address to the assembly the day before: “Yesterday, at this very podium, Satan himself stood speaking as if he owned the world. You can still smell the sulfur.”

If you are an American and you cannot smell the sulfur, you are tightly locked down in The Matrix. God help you. There is no Neo to rescue you. And you are too brainwashed and ignorant to be rescued by me.

You are part of the new Captive Nation.

  1. The U.S. “Justice” Department–like everything else O-Bomb-a touches–is lawless crap. The Federalist Society is a bunch of shysters who–if I understand them correctly–think the President is (or should be) above the Constitution.

    “America is a gulag. We are ruled by a government that is devoid of all morality, all integrity, all compassion, all justice. The government of the United States stands for one thing and one thing only: Evil.”

    A harsh assessment, to be sure. Is it justified? . . .

  2. Eustace Tilley (not) [AKA "Schiller/Nietzsche"] says:

    “The government of the United States stands for one thing and one thing only: Evil.”

    How can you say that, PCR, when it takes (by force) part of my blue collarman’s wages to give to able-bodied Urban Americans half my age in the form of electronic credit on EBT cards to purchase fried chicken and soda pop? Most libtards would call that “good”.

    Your unlimited sympathy for the Blacks shows your naivete. The Blacks do not care one whit for the Palestinians or the Syrians or the Yemenis who suffer from their High Chief Obongo’s foreign policy; they only care about themselves. If you doubt this, watch the video of three Urban Americans taking the podium away from the helpless libtard Bernie Sanders. The Blacks want “Civil Rights for me, but not for thee.”

    Speaking of “brainwashed whites”: Why are you so outraged that “America’s First Black President is a traitor to his race…”? Is the “one drop rule” that 1/32 African DNA makes one “Black” part of the Constitution or something?

  3. I could see the germ of something interesting here. I have a quite well informed lack of respect for the US system(s) of justice, not least the criminal and quasi criminal jurisdictions, but this article is nothing but choleric assertion. Before wasting our time with this unusable guff Mr Roberts why not give us chapter and verse sourced and referenced proof of your case. A single vaguely described case is not enough, not nearly enough.

    Dear Mr Roberts,

    Is there any more pointed and extreme manifestation of “injustice” than the “reality” of the impoverished Afghan peasant,( whose only crime was , perhaps,tending his goats), swept up, tortured and brutalized for years ,without trial or hearing, in Gitmo,……

    ….. juxtaposed to the complete “impunity”of the “fat cat” billionaire whose source of wealth was derived through the war profits gleaned by his malevolent “defrauding” of the American People out of trillions of dollars to launch a feckless war of aggression and exterminate millions of innocent people , who never threatened us. ?

    Isn’t that the very “zenith” of injustice ?

    Isn’t that the pinnacle of ” Terror fraud” that lies at the heart of the collapse of American system at the “stewardship” of the Neocons?

    Doesn’t it personify, too, the obscene and “terroristic” gulf of injustice that lies between the 99% and the 1%

    Is this really what we have come to as a Nation?

    Is that the best we can do?

    Dear God, help us all .
