No matter the blizzard of bullshit from the 3-branch fascist depotism masquerading as our national govt, there is no such thing as legal retroactive immunity for crimes already committed. No matter the blizzard of bullshit from the corporate media, there is no such thing as legal retroactive immunity for crimes already committed. No matter the blizzard of bullshit from the elite channels of discourse - political party bosses, law school professors, CEOs, and sundry dignitaries - there is no such thing as legal retroactive immunity for crimes already committed.
The Constitution does not say, "We don't like ex post facto law, but Congress can go ahead and pass it, and then let the courts sort things out." The Constitution says, "No ex post facto law ... shall be passed". Any and all retroactive immunity for crimes already committed would require ex post facto law. And ex post facto law is unconstitutional, anti-Constitutional, and blatantly illegal. No ifs, ands, or buts. Got it? No politics tap-dancing around the good ol' boys. Got it? Purely anti-Constitutional and illegal. Got it?
So much for telecom immunity.
Its too late on that one for the fascist slime bags - from Bush to ever widening circles of other nazis - who socially engineer the society's cross-pressures so that the fascist predators can keep on butchering ordinary people for profits and power with only a few of us stepping out of the matrix to shout about it. It's too late for the chief fascist slime bag, Bush, to use telecom immunity to cover his own ass in the illegal wiretapping that he ordered long before the 9/11 attacks - attacks in which he still appears to be one of the co-villans.
Oh, yeah, right - the Constitution is just a GD piece of paper. The fascist slime bags - in all their corporate and govt glory - are the deciders. They decide who is accountable and who is not. They decide who lives above the law and who does not. They decide what laws apply to them and what laws do not.
Why are the anti-Constitutional illegalities of ex post facto and criminal conspiracy against Constitutional rights so difficult for the the do-nothing American people to grasp?
Maybe because they're stupid as hell, and they richly deserve the fascist police state that they're going to get?
