Timm: ‘Americans would be shocked to know what US Justice Department is up to’

Earlier the year the founder of the Megaupload website was arrested and thrown to jail. He was accused of running a criminal enterprise – the Megaupload that helped millions of people pirate music and movies. But the court has now ruled that the restraining order that allowed athorities to seize his assets in the first place was “null and void”. This means that the police has illegally invaded dotcom’s home and illegally took all his things. This whole incident raised questions about the way business is conducted at the Department of Justice in the US. Trevor Timm, activist for Electronic Frontier foundation joins RT’s Kristine Frazao for more.

@trg1408 Yeah Ron Paul is crazy for believing in the Constitution and Freedom. I guess any normal person would shit on the Constitution and support anyone else who did the same.

Obama 2012 – Assasinations, illegal wars and showing the world that your no longer a country which follows the Constitution that it likes to preach about.

13% is the amount of people that fought the revolution and won. They are scared shitless! We're more than that and we're on the right. That's why they don't want the troops back and they are looking for a new war to throw them. They know their time is running out. 🙂

this administration is null and void, and all the legislation, bills, and debt it piled on the American people. In fact I invoke article 3, retroactive abortion, to be utilized on a certain skinny fraud.

@Tzimnewman3 Nobody seems to believe this is an issue at all. Our legislators created this problem and eventually they'll offer a solution to the problem they created. The nation will sit back only until family members are mysteriously disappearing, and then one day authorities show up at their front door and be renditioned to parts unknown in response to the elements of the Patriot Act.

@chewycandy666 thats the difference between common law and statute law thats what the town crier was for in olden times, to make sure that the populace knew the kings latest decrees it is from this that the maxim 'ignorance is no defence' comes from because the populace was well informed in olden days

@chewycandy666 although the 'ignorance is no defence' maxim is still being used in these times it is now unfair because the populace is generally ignorant of the latest laws, or at least they are here in the UK, which had the tradition of the town crier for hundreds of years

If we let the people decide then we would be following what the founding fathers had envisioned.

No way Big brother and the rest of the clowns will ever answer to the people.

@kmitchem4 their already making the wrong moves in their own game. they must not want to win. epic fail – failure to pass SOPA PIPA and ACTA before the NDAA. they moved the wrong piece and exposed some of their plans. im still voting, but that wont be the end of this shit. we have groups around this country ready to act. we have soldiers ready to stand down. their pawns are waking up and turning their backs to them. fuck the war on terror, we should have a war on the money changers!

@kimpunkrock I've got no problem with people being rich. Hell, I'd like to try it myself, someday! If someone's good enough and works hard enough to make a pile of money, good for them. BUT…that does not give THEM any right to tell ME how I should live my own damn life!

@califradmt Exactly! Most of these fuckers have never even had to buy their own groceries, and they're telling us how the economy should be run?

People of America. The truth of the matter is that the president does not actually have power. The truth is that these laws are being passed because our government is not as transparent as it seems. The truth is there a bigger players in our government than our president. The truth is those powers do not want us to follow the constitution. They want us to be their slaves so they can get richer. Why else would the government want all our information. They say it is to protect against terrorism.

They say it is to make us safe. They say these laws are only temporary; that we are only giving up our freedoms for a little while. Wake up people! All of these politicians are masters at lying to the masses. They know what they are doing is wrong. They know that they are stealing the people's rights from right under their noses. They know that it is only going to get worse for the American people. They think there is nothing we can do to stop them.

We can stop them. We can FIGHT back. We can stop their lies and their supposed laws against terrorism. WE WILL.

We live in a fascist state hell bent on war!

Why? Because they are in the death throws of a political and economic collapse due to the demise of the dollar…

They claim the Patriot Act is to make us safer but it in fact does not make us safer especially for the average people they are spying on and gathering information from via any electronic device they have available to use against us. Then turn around to give or sell to the media to exploit as they see fit. NOT OK!!!!!! I would imagine this would be something the DOJ would want to keep secret!

@borderraven

Thats a excellent question. It does appear that many have their minds made up and god help us. The average citizen seems to love the social welfare system and free handouts from Uncle Sam.

All we can do is kewep the pressure up and tell the truth about the poor management of our government.
I feel sorry for the young people today as they will not enjoy freedom, but become slaves of the social welfare system.
