I STOOD THERE AS A CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR OF MARYLAND THAT WAS ALLOWED TO BE COMPLETELY CENSURED ILLEGALLY WATCHING AS THE NEXT MARYLAND ATTORNEY GENERAL-----FROSH--- STOOD WITH ANTHONY BROWN IN THE PRIMARY VICTORY CIRCLE. FROSH KNEW THESE PRIMARIES WERE RIGGED AND HE KNOWS THAT RULE OF LAW IS NOT WORKING IN MARYLAND. HE OPERATES INSIDE THESE AVENUES OF INJUSTICE. WHO SUPPORTS FROSH? GROUPS SAYING THEY ARE LABOR AND JUSTICE ORGANIZATIONS.
If we keep allowing the same incumbents to run that are protecting the crimes against the American people----we are instituting this environment. We have labor and justice lawyers ====WHY ARE THEY NOT RUNNING FOR MARYLAND ATTORNEY GENERAL AND STATES ATTORNEYS?
"Barack Obama’s neglect on foreclosure has been well-documented. The housing crisis turned countless former homeowners into renters and, now, into would-be voters in dire straits. More than four in 10 of very low-income US households have no access to subsidized housing, and are instead paying more than 50% of their income in rent, living in horrific conditions or both. We have about as much public housing today as we did in the mid-1970s, losing 10,000 units per year, even though the US population is now 47% bigger.". http://www.theguardian.com/.../democrats-inequality...
The biggest injustice of last decade was the targeting of the American people's status of home-ownership and the moving of much of real estate into the hands of the rich. This bond crash coming seeks to do the same as all government contracts using bonds and leverage for public projects will hand those projects over to the investment firms through default. Yet another mass movement of real estate----this time public assets, to the rich. It was Clinton's former staffers that headed these banks and Federal agencies allowing this massive frauds that neo-con Bush was glad to allow----and it is Obama making sure that all this real estate stays in the hands of the rich and the people fleeced remain fleeced.
THIS HAPPENS BECAUSE RULE OF LAW AND EQUAL PROTECTION IS IGNORED. BUSH ALLOWED RULE OF LAW TO BE IGNORED AND NOW OBAMA IS FOLLOWING. THE AMERICAN CITIZENS HAVE NO RIGHT TO ACCESS RULE OF LAW AND EQUAL PROTECTION SAY NEO-CONS AND NEO-LIBERALS.
This is because these global corporate pols pretend that the Trans Pacific Trade Pact is ALREADY IN PLACE. Grads of Ivy League universities that are leading this movement towards global corporate rule are being sent to be the government employees that recognize TPP as law too. We need to stop allowing Ivy League schools like Harvard and Johns Hopkins control government policy and government pols.
WE CAN REVERSE THESE POLICIES BY SIMPLY GETTING INVOLVED IN POLITICS ----EASY PEASY.
Let's look at Equal Protection as written in the Constitution----this is what makes WE THE PEOPLE the ones controlling legislation and is what gives us rights under law that we are not receiving with neo-liberals and neo-cons. Below you see what neo-liberals and neo-cons are pretending does not exist ------no equal protection then no reason to protect or give justice for fraud and corruption. This law pertains not only to people charged with crime-----it pertains to accessing justice. This is not only a racial issue----it involves Rule of Law pertaining only to the rich and by extension corporations. Keep in mind that justice organizations from the ACLU to NAACP should have lawyers in court all using this clause to protect all of us from massive fraud and corruption. The fact that they are silent shows the capture at the national level. We hear nothing in Baltimore where the injustice is huge! It is easy peasy to win court cases using this clause----if the corruption of courts is addressed. THESE ARE THE RULE OF LAW ISSUES AND ALL OF THEM ARE ADDRESSED BY STOPPING THE SUPPORT OF NEO-LIBERAL CANDIDATES IN PRIMARIES. So, when the MD AFL-CIO/NAACP support neo-liberals and neo-cons every election primary-----
THIS IS WHAT THEY SUPPORT---THE DISMANTLING OF EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER LAW. IT IS HUGE FOLKS.
Equal Protection Clause
The Equal Protection Clause is located at the end of Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment:
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The clause, which took effect in 1868, provides that no state shall deny to any person within its jurisdiction "the equal protection of the laws".
A primary motivation for this clause was to validate and perpetuate the equality provisions contained in the Civil Rights Act of 1866, which guaranteed that all people would have rights equal to those of white citizens. As a whole, the Fourteenth Amendment marked a large shift in American constitutionalism, by applying substantially more constitutional restrictions against the states than had applied before the Civil War.
The meaning of the Equal Protection Clause has been the subject of much debate, and inspired the well-known phrase "Equal Justice Under Law". This clause was the basis for Brown v. Board of Education (1954), the Supreme Court decision that helped to dismantle racial segregation, and also the basis for many other decisions rejecting discrimination against people belonging to various groups.
The Equal Protection Clause itself applies only to state governments. However, the Supreme Court held in Bolling v. Sharpe (1954) that equal protection requirements apply to the federal government through the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment.
I always state that the failure to provide justice violates Due Process and this is what will allow the American people to ignore Statutes of Limitation for crimes the government ignored. The government cannot ignore crimes against citizens and Due Process requires that Statutes of Limitations not apply in this massive and systemic fraud and corruption with no justice. Settlements that dismiss known crime or provide truncated justice can be brought forward with expanded Limitations.
Note as well that Due Process protects the American people against VAGUE LAWS. The Maryland Assembly is king of vague laws and the Baltimore City Council only passes laws that are VAGUE and full of loopholes.
IT IS THE PRETEND PASSAGE OF LAW THAT MAKES MARYLAND POLS PRETEND TO BE PROGRESSIVE AS THEY ARE NEO-CONS AND GLOBAL CORPORATE POLS.
They are not allowed to do this and it is because Maryland has no public justice----all of the Maryland Attorney General's office, all of the Baltimore State's Attorney's office, and the Federal Attorney General's office DOES NOT ENFORCE THESE DUE PROCESS AND EQUAL JUSTICE LAWS and it is all illegal. Yet, Maryland voters allow election capture to keep these pols in office----and we do it nationally as well.
WE MUST EDUCATE MARYLANDERS AND CITIZENS OF AMERICA AS TO LAWS THAT PROTECT OUR RIGHTS AS CITIZENS BECAUSE WE ARE NOT BEING EDUCATED IN CLASSROOMS OR BY LABOR AND JUSTICE ORGANIZATIONS THAT HISTORICALLY DID THIS!
Due Process Clause
The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution contain a due process clause. Due process deals with the administration of justice and thus the due process clause acts as a safeguard from arbitrary denial of life, liberty, or property by the Government outside the sanction of law. The Supreme Court of the United States interprets the clauses however more broadly because these clauses provide four protections: procedural due process (in civil and criminal proceedings), substantive due process, a prohibition against vague laws, and as the vehicle for the incorporation of the Bill of Rights.
Eric Holder was tasked by Wall Street to make sure the tens of trillions of dollars in financial frauds stayed with the banks and did not return to the government coffers and individual's pockets and this is why we had settlements that were parking tickets and Holder made sure those settlements included the sealing of the investigations and evidence found. The idea was to eliminate the ability of citizens to bring these charges forward again and to set the Statutes of Limitation clock forward.
IT'S TOO LATE TO SEEK JUSTICE SHOUT WALL STREET PROTECTORS-----5 YEARS IS IT!
That is of course not true. We all know that Holder did no justice in investigations so almost none of the original crime was included in these settlements. Also, sealing evidence in these settlements is not legal----the public has a right to these court proceedings as public knowledge. So,
WE THE PEOPLE CAN AND WILL REVISIT THESE FRAUD CRIMES WITH DEEPER INVESTIGATIONS AND RE-OPENING OF CASES THAT WERE NOT HANDLED RIGHT.
As you see below there is no statute of limitation when a case is opened and the original indictment is replaced by a super-ceding indictment that does not alter the original charge. This is exactly what WE THE PEOPLE WILL BE DOING WHEN WE GET RID OF CORPORATE POLS AND REINSTATE RULE OF LAW!
EACH TIME LABOR UNIONS AND JUSTICE ORGANIZATIONS SUPPORT NEO-LIBERALS----THEY ARE DENYING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THIS ROUTE TO JUSTICE.
Statutes of Limitation in
Federal Criminal Cases:
Updated April 9, 2007 Congressional Research Service
The clock stops for statute of limitation purposes when an indictment or information is returned. If the indictment or information is subsequently dismissed, federal law gives the government an additional six months (30 days if the indictment
or information is dismissed on appeal and there is a grand jury with jurisdiction in place). The statute of limitations remains tolled if the original indictment is replaced by a superseding indictment, but only if the superseding indictment does not
substantively alter the original charge.
Investigative difficulties or the seriousness of the crime seem to have provided the rationale for enlargement of the time limit for prosecuting these offenses beyond the five year standard
Now, gay rights is the new civil right and all we hear with Equal Protection is gay rights. IT IS GREAT THAT GAY RIGHTS ARE MOVING FORWARD. Know why global corporate neo-liberals are embracing gay rights especially now? IT IS THE VOTING BLOCK OF 10% OF AMERICAN PEOPLE. Know who will not get those rights when Equal Protection is dismantled? Gay citizens. Global corporate pols are simply picking and choosing when to use Equal Protection and then ignoring it overall. THAT IS NOT HOW RULE OF LAW AND EQUAL PROTECTION WORKS!
Obama seems to be familiar with the Equal Protection Clause yet everything---from his failure to pursue fraud and corruption to education and housing policy that dismisses Equal Protection Laws----
VIOLATES THE EQUAL PROTECTION CLAUSE!
These equal protection laws are ignored by states when voters elect candidates for Maryland Attorney General and States Attorneys that think they can ignore them ----WHEN THEY CANNOT.
Obama: 'I Think The Equal Protection Clause Does Guarantee Same-Sex Marriage' In All States
Jeffrey ToobinBarack Obama
Monday, 20 October 2014 (2 days ago)
President Barack Obama seems to have changed his tune on gay marriage, telling The New Yorker's Jeffrey Toobin he believes same-sex couples in all 50 states should be allowed to marry under the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution.
Knowing The Equal Protection Clause
The Equal Protection Clause is part of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Many view it as the attempt to uphold the professed "all men are created equal" clause written in the Constitution. The Equal protection law implies that no State has the right to deny anyone within jurisdiction equal protection of the law.
The implementation of the Equal Protection Clause marked a pivotal point in the American Constitution. Before the Equal Protection Clause (part of the Fourteenth Amendment), the Bill of Rights was only limited to the protection of individuals from the Federal Government. Once the Fourteenth Amendment was enacted, the Constitution was extended to provide protection from State governments.
The Fourteenth Amendment was implemented in 1868, a short time after the American Civil War. It preceded the Thirteenth Amendment which abolished slavery, leading many former Confederate states to adopt Black Codes after the Civil War.To combat the list of Black Codes enacted in Southern states, Congress imposed the Civil Rights Act of 1866.
This Act was a direct effect of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the Dred Scott v. Sanford case. The law required that all citizen regardless of race and color have the equal benefits of all laws, as enjoyed by white citizens. The doubts that arose with the law under the Constitution that was in existence then lead Congress to implement changes to the Constitution, which became known as the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
In order to ensure the fair practice of the Equal Protection Clause, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to apply different tests to the different State classifications and its response to fundamental rights. Usually the Court finds a State classification Constitutional as long as it has a "rational basis" to a "legitimate state purpose". The U.S. Supreme Court, however, established a firmer sense of analysis to certain cases.
To measure the form of equal protection it will scrutinize any distinction when it encounters suspect classifications. When the Supreme Court orders a classification subject to scrutiny, it must have substance that a State law or the State’s administration holds intentions to discriminate. If any intent of a State law provides discrimination, the U.S. Supreme Court further analyzes the basis of race, national origin and in some cases U.S. citizenship. In order for a classification to pass a U.S. Supreme test, the State must prove that that there is an imperative interest to the law and the classification is needed to further its interest. The U.S. Supreme Court will also apply strict scrutiny if any classification interferes with the fundamental rights, such as the First Amendment, the right to travel, or a persons right to privacy.
The Equal Protection Clause was implemented to ensure the fair treatment of all legal citizens of the United States. All states must comply with the rulings of the Supreme Court, which continuously reviews the laws applied by each State to ensure it is following guidelines of fair practice and treatment.
If you have global corporate pols from Reagan/Clinton to Bush/Obama ----then they will ignore our rights as citizens. It is not legal----but if we keep returning corporate incumbents we have no branches of government holding the other accountable. THIS IS WHAT IS HAPPENING TODAY. WE HAVE ALLOWED ALL BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT -----AND IT IS NOW HAPPENING AT STATE AND LOCAL LEVEL---TO BE CONTROLLED BY CORPORATE POLS. Get rid of them by running and voting for labor and justice candidates in all primaries!
Most Presidents Ignore the Constitution The government we have today is something the Founders could never have imagined.
