There may be more to the litigation, and if so, we’ll be able to match these concepts with that “final” ruling on the matter.
The 10th Circuit’s ruling is 100% consistent with our present legal reality.
The problem with these “anti-sharia law” efforts is that they’ve been “sabotaged” from the outset. They were never intended to prevail. They were intended solely as an outlet so that the “anti” voice could be slammed into the ground, so as to allow “marketing” on the concept that might not otherwise be possible.

This is along the lines of how this author expects this one to be “played” and “marketed” in the future.
If Limbaugh is right, that the “front” organization that registered “Occupy Wall Street” as a commercial slogan back in the summer, is pretending also to be “anti-jewish,” the availability for “spin” has not yet begun to be realized!
What’s fascinating is how many other groups have been drawn in by the “nameless,” “leaderless” effort.
If this is a test to see how strong the political base is for more installation of the “police state,” and “Nazi-communo-fascism,” in today’s society, we’ll see in the coming year, via this and that form of “new legislation,” what the results of this social engineering test are.

Succinctly, it is just another in a long line of Marxist protests which just hasn’t been fully found out yet. http://www.qando.net/?p=11805
And, it’s useful to a certain political contingent at the moment.
But, as Charles Gasparino notes in his NY Daily Post article, at its core Occupy Wall Street is an anti-capitalist Marxist movement:
The standard portrayal of the Wall Street protesters goes something like this: Ragtag group of unemployed young adults, venting often incoherent but overall legitimate populist outrage about economic inequality. But go down to the movement’s headquarters, as I did this past weekend, and you see something far different.
It’s not just that knowledge of their “oppressors” — the evil bankers — is pretty thin, or that many of them are clearly college kids with nothing better to do than embrace the radical chic of “a cause.” I found a unifying and increasingly coherent ideology emerging among the protesters, which at its core has less to do with the evils of the banking business and more about the evils of capitalism — and the need for a socialist revolution.
Gasparino goes on to detail what he found and it’s as unremarkable and as expected a listing of what you’d find at any A.N.S.W.E.R. protest. You know it is radical when even Richard Trumka is vilified:
That was pretty mild compared to the sentiments offered in the official “Statement of the League for the Revolutionary Party” on the protests. These guys view as the enemy not just Wall Street tycoons, but also liberal labor leaders like Richard Trumka of the AFL-CIO.
The problem with Trumka, according to the Revolutionary Party and its Zuccotti Park contingent: He wants to work with wishy-washy Democratic Party politicians, where the true revolutionaries want to “defend and develop Marxist theory as a guide to action,” which is the protests’ real purpose.
And yet Trumka is one of many Democrats who at least tentatively embraces this mob. Political expediency. They want to use this to validate their class warfare campaign.
ALSO SEE: Comments On The “99% Declarations”
Yes friends, the murderous Che is again plastered on everything and the “revolutionary” Marxist spirit permeates everything – which is why this is eventually destined to implode:
Maybe the worse-spent dollar I have ever spent in my life was on a propaganda broadsheet titled “Justice,” which advocates “Struggle, Solidarity, Socialism.” On the front page of the newspaper-like document, beneath the headline “Capitalism: System Failure,” was a tease for a story on the economy and how “influential business economist Nouriel Roubini” recently said how “Karl Marx had it right. At some point, capitalism can destroy itself.”
Yes, the left-leaning Roubini made that fatuous statement, and many similar ones — so many, in fact, that he has lost much of his credibility in financial circles, though that didn’t quite make it into the “Marx Was Right!” story.
Also absent was any notice of how the much-hated banks benefited not from free-market capitalism, which would have let them fail in 2008, but from crony capitalism that bailed them out. The similar cronyism practiced by Trumka and the Obama administration — massive spending on useless but politically connected businesses like Solyndra, paired with class-warfare rhetoric — likewise has very little to do with free markets.
Yeah, this ain’t the ‘60s kids. And the core then was just as radical as the core of OWS is now. When the war in Vietnam ended, so did the ability of the radicals to get their anti-capitalist message out.
Eventually this will be seen by the populace as a whole for what it really is. That’s because at some point, the true nature of that core that Gasparino talks about will shine through in such a way that even slick spin doctors won’t be able to credibly deny it. And when that happens, the entire movement will collapse like a wet paper box.
When I see where events have brought us, in the past year, I see that people still do not learn the lessons of history. For all of the commotion that has taken place, it is still the same old thing. Human nature is a creature of habit. All of the protests we are seeing now are going around in the same old rut.
The Island of Uncle Sam
The background information for this article is in “The Spirit of Dr. Moreau”. I’ll add the link for that, at the end of the text. Between now and then, we’ll examine what corporations are and what they do.
These days, we have so many influences bringing out glaring contrasts between Bureaucracy and Humanity. The hot spot today is the Federal Budget debate. This is nothing new. We’ve been watching people threaten each other with poverty since forever. It is during these bouts of confusing numbers and inflammatory ultimatums that we are reminded that turning on floodlights in a crowded bar, at midnight, can expose a lot of surprises.
It is in the contrasts, brought out it all their naked glory, that we see the behavior that causes us to cringe at admitting that we are associated with any of this mockery of all things American. Yet, we need this. We need to understand that Bureaucracy is anti-human. It is cannibalistic. Even in it’s most commercial context, it is impossible to find any compassion or grace for the behavior of Bureaucracy. Something happens to people when they gain auspicious titles and put on a suit and tie. In reality, they are no less human. They just act as predatory animals.
There is one thing that we can be sure of. Those who gain by this unreasonable facsimile of a reality show called government will not be found in line when the inevitable next step down in the currency collapse is taken. None will admit complicity in the Ponzi scheme that is the Federal Reserve. There won’t be a deal good enough to persuade the world to buy U. S. Treasury debt. The situation will become institutional looting and piracy.
This is the point when the masks come off and the wolves devour the sheep. The turmoil and protest in other countries will be seen in the United States. Bureaucracy believes that it is a law unto itself. The human common sense response would be to admit that there is a higher court than any institution of Man. But then, Bureaucracy ate of the forbidden fruit and bought into the original lie, long ago. No, the men of renown have not become gods, and their pride is going before destruction.
Since U. S. citizens are shareholders in the Federal corporation, and volunteered to pay the debts of said corporation, they can just shut up and pay their taxes.
Many progressives are upset that social services are on the chopping block while we are "giving" billions in tax breaks to the wealthy. At the recent twitter town hall event, President Obama said, "The debt ceiling should not be something that is used as a gun against the heads of the American people to extract tax breaks for corporate jet owners or oil and gas companies that are making billions of dollars because the price of gasoline has gone u … Read More

The article below is by R.K. Blacksher. It was posted 5 July 2011. In the link at strike-the-root.com, he lists his occupation as “Drone.” Creative, anyway.
This author prefers Pat Shannan’s lesson in the matter. The term “constitution-ist” is the proper description of one who supports, promotes a/the “constitution,” as contrasted with the term “constitution-al-ist,” which is one who supports a/the “constitutional,” which term IS a noun, and, in some parts of the country, that noun refers to the function of the last part of the alimentary canal. What Blacksher is saying, in his way, is that there are no political solutions.
Here is the very last concept in this piece: “People cannot free themselves if they do not believe they are enslaved. People need to stop trying to free themselves through politics and start trying to free themselves from politics.”
Clearly, Blacksher does not yet understand, completely, the nature of the problem, because slaves have zero authority to obligate themselves or their property commercially. It’s precisely because there is NO slavery that the present “funny money” system “works.” Said another way, involuntary bondage had to go in order for it to be replaced with our present condition of voluntary bondage.
Slaves can’t get credit cards or open retirement accounts or purchase land or cars, etc. Only those with the legal capacity to enter into agreements may engage in even the basics of commercial activity. In the same way that children and medically incompetent people have no “capacity” to bind themselves commercially, slaves have no capacity to bind themselves commercially.
Where one finds few legal remedies for involuntary bondage, given that such law exists in a society that finds it moral and acceptable for one human being to “own,” as property, another human being (which concept is all throughout Scripture), one has all kinds of remedies for Voluntary Bondage. Voluntary Bondage is the by-product of our present commercial system, in which we’re seduced, through our ignorance (unawareness) of our present legal reality, into binding, commercial obligations that are enforced in such a way as to make us think that the authority relied upon is law. Voluntary Bondage is something over which we have 100% control. Thus, on the flip side of that same coin, we have only ourselves to blame.
To play the game of politics is to pretend that the politicians are “the problem.” Thus, by changing them, the problem may be fixed via a different group of politicians who will then rewrite or just “delete” the offensive, oppressive, police-state “statutes.” Fortunately, that’s not how the present system functions. Since no politician in any office can ever compel anyone to sign up for any “gotcha agreement,” by which we impale ourselves on the horns of Voluntary Bondage, no politician, in or out of office, is “the” problem.
Very well said.

What Someone Else Wants
Why do we seem to be pushed, pulled, compelled, coerced, bribed and threatened into a system of revolving slavemasters? Is it that we secretly crave the opportunity to exert power over another human being, IF our turn comes? Could it be that we are just as corrupt as the people we resent?
It is very obvious that fiat currency systems are cycles of abuse. The effort that people make in defending their bankers, attorneys, financial advisors, and media analysts is truly amazing in it’s dedication. Regardless of the wrongs that are inflicted on people, they still love their abusers.
I remember an incident that took place, about 10 years ago. In the place where I got my coffee every morning, on my way to work, I had a thought. As I handed the cashier the paper note in tender of payment, I asked her.
“Do you know why this is worth something?”
Her answer was, “No. Why?”
I replied, “It is worth something because you believe it is. You gave me something real, a cup of coffee, in exchange for debt that you and everyone else promised to repay to a private bank. When these notes are used, the user is borrowing debt.”
If I knew this, 10 years ago, why doesn’t everyone else know it, today? If you could go back in time and show Christopher Columbus a “$?” 100 Federal Reserve note, he wouldn’t know what it was or where it came from. You would have to admit that it wasn’t anything but paper, in his day. You would have a very rough time with the authorities of that day, obviously acting as an agent of a foreign power that doesn’t exist yet. You would know that Columbus wouldn’t sell you a rowboat for a wheelbarrow of FRNs.
In this phase of the currency collapse, everyone is expected to grab a bucket and start bailing. If you are in an ocean of debt, you can’t stay afloat with the Federal Reserve and the U. S. Treasury producing and taking on more debt than you can keep up with. Abdication of conscience leads to exactly what we don’t want.
“Playing Both Ends”
Playing both ends against the middle may be standard procedure in the Corporatist philosophy, but it is a very dangerous practice. In every account of conflict, both sides discover eventually, that they only thought they had the deal that they wanted. The strange wrinkle in human nature that puts diplomacy on the backbone of corruption allows wiggle room to change the meaning of words and terms of the deal. So it is, in the Corporatist political structure. The faces and speeches may change, but the fact remains that conflicting and often contradictory demands can not be resolved. Anger management doesn’t work, here.
We see examples of the vertical failures in public policy, every day. In every area, social, economic and political, the top-down edicts from the administration don’t work at street level. They never did, without a military threat. The location becomes secondary to the factional and sectarian private agendas within government. Government doesn’t need a middle ground to play the ends against. As current agendas play out, an unresolved debate is sufficient. While factions get bogged down in details, no agreement is required to commit theft. Corruption is made difficult to identify if no terms are set. As things simmer along, the current global economic crisis will see the objectives of Commerce implemented in classic Corporatist fashion.
Whether it be in the board rooms of corporations or in the international realm of diplomacy, the wheels of blockade and embargo, invasion and conquest will grind on to their destination, subjugation. The machine of global Corporatism constantly seeks more fuel to run it’s anti-human machine. As diplomacy gets bogged down in scraping embarrassment from it’s shoe, the battle for land and resources will certainly intensify. Property is more likely to be stolen than blown up. Domestically, we see the nationalization of industries. Internationally, we see growing Corporatist domination at the hands of the central banks’ hatchet man, the United Nations. The trap that humanity finds itself in requires people to seek escape and independence. Outside motivation comes too late to be of value. Such basic needs are only successful if acted on by internal decision in each individual. To walk away from the crowd may seem uncertain at the moment, but it is the time-honored and proven path to liberty.
Corporatism tells everyone what they want to hear, ignoring obvious and impossible incongruities, contradictions and public exposure. People are so desperate to believe the “Yes, we can” that they go deaf when history says, “No, you can’t”. For 40 years, we have heard administrations quote Hitler, Stalin and Roosevelt in the spirit of Corporatism. The way each of their labor camp systems divided the world each had their unique charms, but they all worked toward the goal of an Incorporated purpose for a conscripted populace. Individual autonomy and self-determination are now cornered fugitives in the abandoned building that once was America. Because Corporatism sees each generation as a crop of human resources, it is naturally destructive. It is no compliment to be seen as a renewable resource. For the individual, it is a total loss system. If people are satisfied with finding nobility and fulfillment in corporate sacrifice, let them have their fate. The test is whether or not American principles will overcome that totalitarian lie.
We only know the sequence of events and judgments of historians as they are taught to us. We should be greatly disturbed by every instance that requires us to turn our backs on our heritage. The respect for life and independence that was once a given is replaced by a hunger for Corporatist conquest in the marketplace. Unfortunately, the fear of poverty keeps people playing the debt game, trying to break even. That fear causes people to act against their interests. They have chosen more bureaucratic intervention and intrusion in their lives, taking on more trouble than they began with.
When systems break down, they drag people with them. The assets of the individual are then liquidated and absorbed into the corporate State, for “the greater good”, as embodied in the survival of the corporation. Do we seek life, or do we stay in our seats, frozen in fear? “Refugee” is just a polite term for “casualty”. There is no justification for abiding in such a circumstance. There are no neutral positions. There are only predators and prey. Generations have been taught to accept the latter, without dissent. The independent option is systematically and institutionally discouraged. We are taught to submit ourselves meekly, as spoils of war.
How do we reach the independent goal of life in liberty, seemingly just over the horizon? Obviously, the Corporatist structure has no interest in a freer, better world, in the future. Taking a harvest from it, yes; being restrained by any moral precept, no. We are taught that participation is mandatory. At present, the cannibalistic nature of Corporatism limits general predation. The bureaucratic conflicts among power structures seek bigger prey than the individual citizen. For the little fish, a barracuda is more dangerous than a Great White shark. This is the state of existence in the experience of humanity. America has been a rare, sheltered cove in the storms of war. To weather the present storm, we must be diligent in our training in the training that previous generations rejected. We may have been deceived, but people who discover that they have been lied to are most persistent in pursuit of the truth. Corporatist power is always directed at limiting the range of thought and silencing the voice of free people. A thief, caught in a lie, always resorts to murder. Revision of keep witnesses buried. So too will guilt build inn the corporate structure until it collapses or it’s components devour each other.Every empire in history has suffered this fate. It is the fragments that sprouted to torment future generations. Those who live by predation, are consumed by it. The path through the destruction is there for those who seek it. Answers only work by living them. Fortunately, we still have a will to live that keeps us moving. Survival is one victory. Independence is another. Repeatedly stringing those victories together is the pursuit of happiness.
The first decade of the new millennium has been such a whirlwind, so far, that we have to stop and ask ourselves, “What just happened?!!” Do we have any historical frame of reference to measure recent events, by? Upon examination, there are many events in our history that point to present conflicts and their outcomes.
When empires disintegrate, the forces that functioned within them don’t just disappear into thin air. Relationships and traditions float on the winds of change, like dandelion seeds. So it is, in the transition periods in the United States. If we draw a straight line from the questions of our day, back through historical records, motives and goals become clearly defined.
When have we seen the present level of regulatory corruption and commercial consolidation in our past? That would be the period 1891 through 1913. The economic structure, combined with political corruption, produced public manipulation that led to the Federal Reserve and WWI. At that point, government became the Corporatist War Machine that we see today. The seeds of subsequent wars of Corporate conquest were planted in that time period. Generations became cannon fodder to enforce the will of the central banks and exact tribute from indigenous populations. Every aspect of social and commercial activity now teaches people the anti-human compulsions of Corporatism. People are now identified and valued by their relationship within the corporate structure. Throughout history, long before there was a United States”, these practices were condemned and ended in destruction. Monetizing and numbering people is the most evil practice implemented by government. It leads to mass murder, genocide.
Last year, people failed to recognize the patterns from the 1920s & 70s. If there had been recognition, before the fact, we never would have been talking about trillions in bailouts to “stabilize” the global economy. Those prior decades identify the actions that were taken in the past year as injurious to financial stability and social continuity. Going back and reading
“Land and Wealth vs. Debt and Promises: The End Game”
“War Under Heaven: The World At Commerce”
shows that I understated everything. My friends around the world were telling me that everything was worse than I said it was. In 2 trips across the country, I found that they were right. Sections of cities look like war damage. The atmosphere is different. The tension of being packed into cities, under uncertain and sometimes dangerous circumstances, wears people down.
Have we forgotten the scenes of those decades and what they led to, so quickly? The threat of hyperinflation, the resulting wage and price controls, loan defaults, the S & L failures, 23% prime rates, record unemployment, political and financial scandals …. need I go on? The jury is in, and we are judged, GUILTY. We are repeating the past. We are going down the path of social collapse, dangerous urban environments, polarizing media manipulation of public opinion, with government as petty, corrupt and self-serving as it ever was. We are being thrown to the wolves, and still don’t see it.
The present time is a turning point of U. S. history. As the Corporation has siezed the helm of the ship of state, and presumes to overrule the restraints that it AGREED to, in 1787, we are stuck with the reality that we are oppressed by a criminal organization. The United States government is Hell-bent on herding the population, like livestock. the healthcare reform debate doesn’t recognize people as living beings. We are seen as potential markets, managed assets, group cost caps, repositories for chemical cocktails and the resulting repeat sales, to address the side effects. This is the kind of human experimentation that makes war criminals of medical authorities. Credentials mean nothing in the sight of the Author of Life. The lust for power and wealth has never known satisfaction. The “American” Medical Association won’t find the goal of their obsession in Heaven.
It is interesting that legislation in the 1960s borrowed so much from wartime enemies. That illustrates that countries and leaders rise and fall, but Corporatism marches on. The public figures that rammed Nazi and Soviet laws down our throats at that time are now facing the consequences in Eternity. Will we learn from this, today? The legislation that resulted in the Patriot Act and Homeland Security is in the same spirit that produced the genocides of the 20th century, sending more than 100 million people to execution at the hands of their own governments. We are watching the disease of National Socialism run it’s course. We don’t have to be infected by it.
Where is it?
