Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Two sets of laws

Rule of law for thee, but not for me.

Today, the “law” is a weapon wielded by the establishment to cement its grip on its power and position. That’s why Democrats are so eager to repeal Citizens United and pass all sorts of new laws restricting election campaigning. They know they will be able to violate those laws with impunity while using them to jam up their conservative opponents.

What it means right now is that preferred establishment figures and groups get a free pass from their elite prosecutor pals, but you – an uppity Normal or the representative you choose – gets the full weight of the feds. That’s by design. The law is not designed to restrain our masters. It’s designed to keep you in chains. The elite tries to sell you on the idea that justice is blind, that before the law everyone is the same. But that’s a lie. It’s not, and that’s the way they want it.

Where there are two sets of laws, there are no laws. There’s just power being applied to try to keep the Normals in line.

Where are the indictments of the swamp dwellers pulling tax or foreign representation shenanigans with a (D) behind their name? How about one of the Podestas? Yeah, right. It’ll never happen. Normal-friendly General Flynn gets ambushed and pleads when he’s on the verge of bankruptcy and his family threatened; Clapper and Brennan lie away under oath to Congress then get juicy gigs on pinko networks. These selective prosecutions are a signal – defy the elite at your peril.

So, is it any surprise that when the establishment now comes to us breathlessly announcing that they finally got the goods on Donald Trump breaking the law that we just shrug and laugh? As my upcoming book Militant Normals: How Regular Americans Are Rebelling Against the Elite to Reclaim Our Democracy explains, we Normals are no longer buying the lies. We see that the law as applied today is not a tool of justice but one of oppression. And this is bad.

It’s also nothing new. In fact, you could almost say it’s something of an American tradition at this point.
