Elected And Above The Law: Bill “Would Exempt Lawmakers From Prosecution Of Nearly Any Crimes”

This one is just too rich. The arrogance and absurdity is over the top.

Granted, most of the political class is already de facto above the law to begin with.

But now, a lawmaker in Oklahoma has introduced a bill to officially give most lawmakers, judges, appointees and holders of high office immunity from prosecution.

The bill proposes to strip away the ability of a local level prosecutor, such as a district attorney, from being able to bring charges against anyone holding a government position. The text reads:

“The jurisdiction of a prosecution against a principal in the commission of a public offense, when such principal is a state elected official, state legislator, district court judicial officer, appellate judicial officer or an appointee of a state board or state commission at the time of the commission of the offense, is within the sole and exclusive prosecutorial authority of the Attorney General of Oklahoma. Such an action must be filed in the county of residence of the state officer.”

Under the legislation, only an Attorney General would be able to bring charges against such a person, who would effectively live in a separate class of citizens who are above the law. So long as they are in office, any “public offense” would not be considered a punishable crime.

As Counter Current News reported, this has at least one local prosecutor up in arms over the abuse of power:

“It’s a big deal to me. I’m upset and concerned,” Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater explained. “This bill creates a different class of citizens that would be protected from the normal prosecution process.”

“I am suspicious … that is what this is really about,” Prater added.

The only justification offered for this outrageous and odious piece of “legislation” (for how can one make a law exempting one’s self and peers from the law?) is to combat ‘politically-motivated’ “malicious prosecution,” as in the case of former Texas Governor Rick Perry, who is being prosecuted for abuse-of-power (or how the irony twists round-and-round in this case).

So, to prevent abuse-of-power in frivolously prosecuting elected or appointed officials for alleged abuse-of-power, these officials should have immunity from the law to begin with?

And corruption already runs rampant in the halls of Congress, both on the state and federal level.

If Oklahoma adopted this law, it would likely only be a matter of time before other states do so as well. Washington would be on this yesterday, if possible.

This would absolutely cement the culture of corruption in politics, giving carte blanche for all sorts of behavior and all manner of deals involving conflicts of interest. The politicians could do almost anything – and so long as they tow the party line (of the two-headed, single party system), they would operate under total immunity.

But as for everyone else, not so much, of course.

The little people will continue to get the squeeze, facing prosecution and significant financial penalties for even petty crimes and misdemeanors, as well as imposed mandatory insurance policies, increased taxes and much more, generally laid upon these taxpayers by appointed and elected officials doing favors for their corporate lobbyist partners-in-crime.

That’s why the U.S. has the largest prison population in the world, with more than 2 million people behind bars.

That’s why the U.S. has a guilty-until-proven-innocent system in place, with more than 72 government-sanctioned non-criminal reasons to suspect some of being a potential terrorist.

That’s why the U.S. operates under a nightmare scenario where civil asset forfeit seizure “laws” have been used to steal people’s homes and property, even when they have not been charged with a crime.

This is how the other side lives.

While it is true that there are plenty of ‘bad guys’ committing some awfully heinous crimes, it is also true that there are far too many laws – in a country that was once founded on freedom, but is now swallowed up in bureaucracy – resulting in prisons filled with offenders who’ve committed non-violent crimes, victimless crimes and even petty and sometimes bizarre offenses.

And there are plenty of corrupt officials enforcing this system, but many of the judges and LEOs don’t even agree with the laws they are enforcing and sentences they are handing out (some of which are mandatory under statute).

Those same judges and LEOs would be powerless to arrest the politicians who made these laws – even if it were clear that laws were broken and abuses occurred. Even if they wanted to, not that I’m holding my breath.

Enter the trump card – an entire deck of get-out-of-jail-free cards.

What do you think about that?

  1. “Color of Law”, “appearance of law”, “pretense of law without the substance of lawfulness”, “misuse of power made possible only because wrongdoer is clothed with authority of state” – this does not make it law, that is just another lie.

    But people will believe it is law because they are no longer educated, or able to critical think. They will allow those who have lawfully been given – and they ran for and accepted, hired, contracted, volunteered for, etc duties put down on a document in writing, listing what they can and cannot do.

    Preamble:
    Preamble: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

    Notice who it says are responsible for those actions listed. It was not those put into place to perform specific duties. The “color of laws” that has been passed are null and void from the outset. But it is educating the people that it is so which is important.

    Removing themselves from the realm of accountability is not a power that was granted to those who serve within our government. But because it has worked with the governmental professional law enforcement they believe it will work with them.

    Yet none of them are above the law here in America, actually they are held to a higher standard because there is no time limit on constitutional crimes, ever.

    Military and LE’s, Learn what your Oath means, keep it or at least KNOWINGLY choose to assist in the destruction of our nation. That way, when we get our nation back – only this time fully under the US Constitution – and you are charged with treason it will be because YOU CHOSE treason over our nation and legitimate government, not because you “just followed orders” and “just did your job”. The accountability and possible types of punishment will be the same so make sure that it is YOUR choice.

    You are needed here to defend the USA and the US Constitution per your Oaths; but the choice is yours as always.

    Molon Labe! God Bless!

    If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

  2. Carl, Thank you. When Our trustees abuse, cheat, lie, poison and steal! They Steal our sweat and force the People to ask to work when it is a Right! How can they tell Us what We can consume, when We own Our Life force and body? When did they become Our Gods? A Right Will Not be licensed, permitted, registered or taxed! Now they Steal Our Blood, DNA and Images without asking or paying Us! Is there going to be any Justice for the People?

    It is Time for People to Stop being citizens and Start being Americans Or We the People.

  3. In Pennsylvania lawyers have for years paid into a fund that goes towards a ‘special’ police force that is supposed to police the lawyers in that state, but what it is in reality is a reporting agency to report to when a PA citizen has witnessed a lawyer commit a crime, they collect all the vital witness information from the ‘very’ cooperative witness and decide whether this witness is a threat to corrupt lawyers in PA or in the case of lawyers that work for the state, this ‘special’ police force can run scams on the witness to downplay his credibility as a citizen and a witness to anything. Very corrupt state worker lawyers receive extra special protection from this assortment of retired cop’ ex-fbi’ and other assorted government goon squad specialists who see the corrupt ones as ‘helping’ their fellow retirees gain very lucrative and special benefits jobs in retirement. Most witnesses fade away or die of suicide within a few years of running across these special professionals. All while trying to maintain and establish an incorruptible and shining state example of courtroom officers and officials. Instead through Alex Jones’s perfect independent state this state, Pennsylvania, has made laws to ‘make sure’ corruption stands in the state justice system. And given them extra protections under law to stand above mere non-lawyer or government position citizens. Shame on the lawyer group nationwide that says it brings cases against wayward states, (Rutherford institute) and really stands fast with their pals, and the good old boy gangs of lawyers.

  4. The problem that they will have is getting the people (US ) to accept that. If they do that then we may have to go back to the tar and feather routine but we demand justice and liberty for all and will accept nothing less

  5. Each and every time a new story is picked up and garners the attention of the few who read it, and comment of the wrongs being perpatrated on thenursecruella people the answers are the same. (Not on my watch). There is no action suggested as to how to stop it., only more of the same i won’t stand for it. So far every one is standing for it. When will it time to stop it and who will be the first to stand.

  6. What’s Going down i’m new to this, I stumbled upon this I have discovered It positively helpful and it has aided me out loads.
    I’m hoping to give a contribution & help other users like its
    aided me. Good job.
