A Step Towards Respect of Our Laws and The Social Mores by Legalizing Drugs

(An Approach to Change That Might Lessen Our Tax Burden)

By ZachJonesIsHome

Have you ever asked the question, “Why do so many people bend, break, and/or ignore the law?” I have – and I think it comes down to a pervasive belief (on some level) that many of our laws are not reasonably related to the protection of our society. Many of our laws are intended to restrict decision-making that should be strictly personal in nature. The law caudles us, treats us like children – without the experience to make informed decisions. Instead of developing only laws that address conduct that has the potential of harming others in our society, we develop laws that tell the individual adult that he or she cannot consider a decision they are facing, together with its possible consequences and then choose to live with those consequences.

As stated by George Orwell, On the whole, human beings want to be good, but not too good, and not quite all the time.”

As a result, the consequences (if you will) are that many adults will decide to do the thing they are considering (even if it is illegal) and take the risk. And from that very act, one loses a certain degree of respect for the sanctity of all laws and may become more likely to shrug their shoulders when they see someone else violating some other law(s) that could be construed as an unreasonable infringement on free choice. The individual might also feel the need to cover up his/her indiscretion. (Maybe by lying on applications to licensing boards, lying on tax returns, doing favors of position to others to attempt to cover up, lying to the courts, etc.) Furthermore, it could be argued that it would then become against that person’s best interest to voluntarily help the police by providing information to them regarding other matters – the danger being that if they get involved one might draw more attention than they want. That’s too bad, since the police have historically relied on that type of assistance in its effort to combat crime. And it is always important to remember that children are watching parents violate the law and will learn that they too should be able to pick and choose which laws they are willing to follow….

In conclusion, it is the sanctity of the system of laws that is at issue here. That system can only be respected if it is clearly, rationally related to trying to protect us from harm from others. However, it fails when the system attempts to usurp decisions from us that are clearly ours to make.

So therefore Senator Obama, you can come clean to me about the allegations of your use of illicit drugs and having gay sex with Larry Sinclair in 1999. Just do it. And where is the American media in this? AWOL. Cowards!

Larry Sinclair? Obama? Political Prisoner? Hmmmm? Biden? Really? Hmmm?

June 22, 2008

Hmmmm?

When Politicians exert such power and influence that it causes the altering of normal processes of law enforcement solely to preclude the sounds of dissenting voices – we have all lost a tremendous amount.

It could be argued that a very determined dissenting voice has been incarcerated by political influences on law enforcement this past June 18, 2008. It is past time for the authorities to free Larry Sinclair who is now possibly being held as a Political Prisoner. Hmmmm?

Let’s think about this for a moment. Hmmmm?

Mr. Larry Sinclair was arrested on June 18, 2008, after his presentation before The National Press Club (NPC). There are reports that the arrest was intended to take place prior to Mr. Sinclair’s presentation before the NPC wherein he made allegations that in 1999 Sen. Obama and he ingested crack cocaine and engaged in homosexual activities. Hmmm?

Joseph Robinette “Beau” Biden III (born February 3, 1969) is an American politician and lawyer from Wilmington, in New Castle County, Delaware. He is a member of the Democratic Party and is the incumbent Attorney General of Delaware. He is the son of U.S. Senator Joseph R. Biden, Jr. Hmmm?

VP speculation swirls around Sen. Biden

…”Biden’s name has been among those often mentioned, largely for the same reason the Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman is often touted as a possible candidate for secretary of state…. Hmmm?

Joseph R. “Beau” Biden, III took office as Delaware’s Attorney General in January 2007…. …. Hmmm?

Late Addition:  CitizenWells writes today on Mr. Sinclair’s blog: “…I have information from two reliable sources that Sinclair’s record was thoroughly checked in January 2008 and there were no other outstanding warrants….” Hmmm? So there were no active arrest warrants in Delaware for Mr. Sinclair in January of this year, 2008.  Hmmm?

Let’s see –

What would it take to cause law enforcement from Delaware to arrange the arrest of Mr. Larry Sinclair in Washington, D.C.? Hmmm?

Is this how Delaware’s law enforcement normally goes about executing an arrest warrant? Hmmm?

Whose signature would be required? Hmmm?

Whose direction could instigate it? Hmmm?

For what purpose could it serve? Hmmm?

Hmmm?

Article: Is 1st Amendment on life support?

June 22, 2008

Very good article from National Press Club perspective.

I took exception to Ms. Smith’s statement in the article:

….My point is that the very thing the people who advocated blocking Sinclair’s press conference said they feared – widespread media coverage – simply didn’t happen because no credible news outlet would publish those kinds of allegations without first verifying them….

My response:

The problem is that No Credible News outlet has tried to do either – verify or disprove Mr. Sinclair’s allegations.

Commentary by Sylvia A. Smith

Commentary by Sylvia A. Smith
Washington editor

WASHINGTON – After a week of relentless e-mails and phone calls from people who were outraged at the prospect of a guy scheduling a press conference to make allegations about Barack Obama, I’m not sure extreme CPR could resuscitate the idea of free speech in some Americans’ minds.

The message they sent was that the guy is a crackpot and a felon and therefore should be prevented from speaking.

Let me fill you in on what happened.

As you might know, I’m the president of the National Press Club this year. The Press Club is a major venue for newsmaking in Washington. We invite lots of interesting, provocative and newsy people to speak here.

But we also rent our meeting rooms to people and groups. They might have a private event (a wedding reception or a conference limited to their own members). Or they might rent space to conduct a press conference.

When that happens, the NPC functions essentially as a conference center.

A couple of weeks ago, one of our meeting rooms was reserved by a customer for a press conference. As it turned out, Larry Sinclair wanted to say he had done illegal things with Obama.

There’s lots of stuff going on in Washington that competes for journalists’ time and attention. The likelihood of much media coverage for this fellow was pretty low because of the outlandishness of his claims and (if anyone had done a Google search on him) his dicey background.

But then a few blogs got wind of the event. They huffed and they puffed that Obama was being unfairly attacked. They detailed Sinclair’s allegations. They stoked their readers to try to force the National Press Club to silence him….

The underlying message I got from the callers and e-mailers was that the First Amendment and free speech are an impediment to the way they think things ought to be. Or that while some people are free to speak, others should not be.

That way of thinking is a lot scarier than allegations from Larry Sinclair…

When Will the Media’s Investigations Begin?

June 20, 2008

The Official Un-Cut Version of Larry Sinclair’s National Press Club Presentation Video Is Located Here: http://www.larrysinclair.org/press.html

In this video Mr. Sinclair describes his allegations of drug and sexual encounters in 1999 with Sen. Obama. He presents enough information (names, phone numbers, dates, times, etc.) to allow the press to pursue their investigations into Presidential candidate Obama’s role regarding these allegations.

Mr. Sinclair gives enough information, in enough detail, to allow the hard questions to be asked of the Senator. He implies that he has more relevant information for the press should they desire it from him. Evidently, he has been advised not to disclose all that he has at this time.

Will the Press, Investigative Reporters, the Media, do their jobs and undertake their responsibilities to investigate the backgrounds of All canidates? Or will they merely continue to investigate the backgrounds of only those who stand as obstacles to Sen. Obama’s bid to become President of the United States of America?

Will the Senator step to the plate and disprove these allegations? This has always been the easiest and most certain avenue for total resolution of these issues. Can Michelle Obama give insight/proof about the whereabouts and actions of the Barrack Obama of 1999?

Can Sen. Obama show that he was not available to Mr. Sinclair during the times and dates in question? To date, I believe he has said that he did not keep records of his whereabouts at that time. A Harvard educated lawyer and a State Senator from Illinois does not keep records? Hmmm. A man who sat in the pews of Rev. Wright’s church for 20 years and denied that he was aware of his hateful views? Hmmm. A man who has disavowed his many of his past relationships with former friends and spiritual advisors because they are not the “fill in the blank” person that I knew back then? Hmmmm. Will Senator Obama’s response be that “The 1999 Illinois Sen. Obama is not the man I knew in back then.”

That’s the issue. Does the electorate of this country really know the Sen. Obama of 1999? I don’t think so. The journalists of today, if there are any, need to inform all of us. I ask myself, when it comes to the issue of credibility: “Given what we know of Sen. Obama’s current denials and excuses of his past associations, who really is the more credible witness, Sen. Obama or Mr. Larry Sinclair?” Honestly, I don’t know the answer to that question. Will the media find out? Please, do your jobs. We all can see through your bias at this point and time.

I used to think to believe that Truth was the goal of the media. It is painfully obvious that in 2008 this is not the case. Unfortunately, that responsibility has fallen upon ill equipped internet blogs and concerned citizens. How ridiculous is that! People with limited access, varied motives, very limited resources trying to give the American people information. Sometimes the information is correct and sometimes it is partially correct. Sometimes the information is mostly lies and manipulations, sometimes it is well intentioned. But until the Media steps up and does its job, it is All that we have and the responsibility for errors lie with the Main Stream Media.

Australia Reports a Fair Depiction of Larry Sinclair’s Presentation Before The National Press Club

June 18, 2008

One of the first fair depictions of Mr. Sinclair’s presentation today at the National Press Club was written in Australia and not here in the U.S. Surprised? I’m not. Hopefully the truth will come out, whatever it may be. It is the process of allowing people to be heard that is important. See: http://www.australia.to/story/0,25197,23040467-235,00,00.html

My article, “Is It Time For The Center Of Congress To Become Independents Or Something Else And Take Control Of Our Government?” got picked up as an Op-Ed piece in the Australian media. It is at: http://www.australia.to/international/0,25197,23040467-247,00,00.html I’m sure it’s going to be a good day, today. Zach

Complete Description of Larry Sinclair’s Appearance at the National Press Club.

June 15, 2008

From The National Press Club:

Larry Sinclair on Obama Time: 3:00 PM  Event Type: News Conference  Sponsored by: Veritas Federal Media  Event Location: Holeman Lounge  Details:

Larry Sinclair on Barack Obama

There will be a Pre-Registration for Press beginning at 1:00pm. All press must show media credentials and must obtain an event press pass to enter the event.


Washington, D.C. – Despite death threats and an organized campaign to prevent him from speaking publicly, Larry Sinclair — on June 18, 2008, at 2:00 PM (Sign in begins at 1:00 PM) in the Holeman Lounge of the National Press Club, 529 14th Street NW, Washington, DC 20045, will for the first time reveal the corroborating evidence for his claim that on November 6 + 7, 1999, Larry: (i) met Obama at a gay bar where Barrack Obama arranged for the purchase of federal Schedule II drugs, (ii) which Larry and Obama thereafter ingested and (iii) then engaged in hi-risk, homosexual activities.

Larry’s story burst on to the scene on January 18, 2008, when Larry released a short video containing these allegations on YouTube.com. That video has had close to a million views yet the mainstream media has completely ignored Larry’s serious allegations. Thereafter, a clearly orchestrated campaign to discredit Larry began on the internet which forced Larry to resort to federal court to protect his reputation.

At the press conference, Larry will (i) reveal the corroborating evidence for his allegations regarding Obama, (ii) address the time-line of the response of the Obama campaign to his allegations and the murder of Donald Young, the openly gay choir director of Trinity United Church of Christ, Obama’s now-former church and (iii) the significance of the refusal of U.S. District Court Judge Henry H. Kennedy, Jr. to allow Larry’s case to proceed.

Mr. Sinclair’s Event is Beginning to be Exposed Across the Pond.

National Press Club faces demands to ban Barack Obama smear merchant14 hours ago by alex.spillius@telegraph.co.uk (Alex Spillius)
The National Press Club has been inundated with complaints over its decision to stage a press conference by Larry Sinclair, a man of mysterious background who has been peddling sex and drugs claims about Barack Obama for several months.

A Couple of the Comments:

Festival of Freakdom

Vegas Vivian 14 Jun 2008 04:34

Mr. Spillius, certainly grace this event with your presence. It will be the best show in town. The Obama supporters have elevated this appearance from a freak show better ignored to a must-see event.

Why … indeed.

BlackArrow 14 Jun 2008 06:22

“why one of Washington’s premier media platforms had been given over to Sinclair.”

Maybe because our corporate media over here are into the neocon agenda up to their own profiteering necks and are just as desperate that Obama be discredited as Cheney&Bush, McCain, and the rest of the neocons?

In any case, the sex & drug stories should be thoroughly investigated, so — if true — they can’t be used to blackmail him. Of course, such rumours didn’t seem to hurt the Clintons, but they are “continuity” types like McBush.

In any case, Obama’s wife doesn’t seem like the type to tolerate such shenanigans.

Silencing of Dissent

VinceP1974 14 Jun 2008 10:06

The Obamas and their supporters sure don’t want their opposition to say anything.

Reminds me of this:

With Obama we started out, we couldn’t talk about his big ears ’cause that made him nervous. We’ve gone from that to this: Not only can we not mention his ears…

We can’t talk about his mother.

We can’t talk about his father.

We can’t talk about his grandmother unless he does, brings her up as a “typical white person.”

We can’t talk about his wife, can’t talk about his preacher, can’t talk about his terrorist friends, can’t talk about his voting record, can’t talk about his religion.

We can’t talk about appeasement.

We can’t talk about color; we can’t talk about lack of color.

We can’t talk about race. We can’t talk about bombers and mobsters who are his friends. We can’t talk about schooling. We can’t talk about his name, “Hussein.”

We can’t talk about his lack of experience. Can’t talk about his income. Can’t talk about his flag pin.

This started out we can’t call him a liberal.

It started out we just couldn’t talk about his ears.

Now we can’t say anything about him
