Whistleblowers are being censored by threats to their rights to protect America's freedoms and laws, by archaic laws that remind one of the inquisition and it's intentions. If one was to profess that the church was wrong in its view of life forces then one became an enemy of the state. It was the right of citizens to be protected by the church and condemn others to death or imprisonment and torture and all they had to do was declare witchcraft or false teachings as their motivation for condemnation. Now if one declares some variace to procedure, one need only elicit the secrecy act, whereby anything that threatens national security and is considered vital to the states security can be declared off limits to whistleblowers and so the crimes of the state can be declared above the law.

Case in point- The Constitution does not always protect their free-speech rights for what they say on the job, justices said in a 5-4 ruling. This from Democracy Now-
Quote:
The Supreme Court has dealt a setback to government whistleblowers. In a five to four decision, the court declared that the Constitution does not always protect the free-speech rights of government employees for what they say on the job. The court held that the free-speech rights of public employees are protected when they speak out as citizens on matters of public concern, but not when they speak out in the course of their official duties. The case centered on the demotion of a Los Angeles County prosecutor named Richard Ceballo. He sued the Los Angeles County district attorney's office when he was demoted after he revealed that a sheriff’s deputy had lied to get a search warrant.


Here's a book review about a book written in Britain.

Spies, Lies & Whistleblowers: MI5, MI6 and the Shayler Affair by Annie Machon (Book Guild, 2005)
http://home.clara.net/heureka/books/shayler-affair.htm

There are many examples of how that claim we have freedom of speech, but just exercise it and see if you ever work in this town again! Pink slips, saying you'd help but your boss is a republican, cowering under authority when you see wrongdoings.

This is more examples of the witch hunts and betrayals in our system, to protect the status quo and continue their takeover of our free thought and democratic liberties. It looks more like the pattern from the inquisition days as they can destroy your life anytime they need to on the whims of a system gone mad with its needs to be secretive and suspicious. All this to retain its grasp of fear and power over the people, by pretending to be working for the betterment of the peoples beliefs, rights and securities.

And the voice from the past confirms that:

'It is for everyone who desires to be preserved from the excesses of popular feeling and to prevent the community to which he belongs from plunging into riotous and blind commotions, to keep his own judgment and emotions as free as possible from a power that seizes all it can reach, draws them into its current, and sweeps all it can round and round like the Maelstrom, until they are overwhelmed and buried in its devouring vortex. When others are heated, the only wisdom is to determine to keep cool; whenever a people or an individual is rushing headlong, IT IS A DUTY OF PATRIOTISM and of FRIENDSHIP TO CHECK THE MOTION.'

Charles P. Upham

Salem Witchcraft, Published in 1867

Exactly. I just got The Atlantic and on the front cover is the other dastardly twin- Roberts. Fellow conscripts of the Bush/Cheney regime.

Get prepared for Roe.
