This is the fourth in a seven-part series about how the Consititution no longer applies in the United States. Previously, Michael Ventura discussed how our leaders have rendered the first half of the Bill of Rights non-functional. Here are the high points about the Fifth Amendment:
“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
The 5th Amendment is not law because it is arbitrarily enforced. It does not seem to apply to foreigners or those accused of terrorism.
- Americans look the other way in the name of “Security”
- Secret memos are now enough evidence to be killed by drone at president’s orders.
Now – Rogue Nation
A “rogue nation” is a country that purposefully, continually, and systematically defies the international laws and treaties that govern civilized behavior – treaties that said rogue nation had previously promised to abide by and enforce.
Ventura specifically looks at 2 treaties the United States signed and has systematically broken in the last 12 years – The
International Bill of Human Rights and the Geneva Conventions.
Looking to Part 5
Ventura describes how the Bill of Rights is breaking down in the state-level justice systems.
