If Hillary Isn't Indicted, The Rule Of Law & The Republic Are Dead

Submitted by Charles Hugh-Smith of OfTwoMinds blog,

Once the Oligarchy is above the law, the Republic is already dead.

To paraphrase Ernest Hemingway: How did you lose your Republic? Two ways, gradually and then suddenly. The Romans experienced this when their Republic was extinguished by Empire.

The erosion of the Republic was gradual: slowly but surely, the lower classes' representation in governance was curtailed; the Oligarchy of the wealthy and powerful cemented their privileges at the expense of the many; Oligarchs rose above the laws that were supposed to apply to all, and executive power was consolidated in top administrators and the wealthy at the expense of the Senate.

When Caesar crossed the Rubicon with his army to seize control of Rome, the Roman Republic ceased to exist. Gradually and then suddenly: this is how Republics become Empires.

We find ourselves in a parallel moment in history: the American Republic has been hollowed into a shell that is maintained for PR purposes. Beneath the propaganda, the Establishment runs the nation for its own benefit. The people are ignored, because they are powerless in this hollow shell of democracy: their only role is to provide bodies, talent and blood for the Imperial armed forces, pay taxes if they have any money, and be content with their food stamps if they don't.

Here's the proof:

Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens

Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence.

Here are two articles in the same vein:

America the Banana Republic

The Quiet Coup

The United States has reached a crossing the Rubicon moment: either Hillary Clinton is indicted for knowingly violating statutes regarding State Department security, or the rule of law and the Republic are dead. This is a binary moment: we either let Hillary evade the laws that were established to protect the security of the nation and confess there is no rule of law now for the Oligarchy, or the agencies tasked with defending the nation indict her.

There is no middle ground. If Hillary isn't indicted, the rule of law, i.e. no one is above the law, is dead.

If you believe Hillary that she didn't really do anything to violate the spirit or the letter of security laws, please review these statutes:

U.S. Department of State Foreign Affairs Manual Volume 12 - Diplomatic Security
12 FAM 531.1 Top Secret Storage
12 FAM 531.1-1 Domestic
(CT:DS-185; 01-31-2012)
(Uniform State, USAID, OPIC, TDP)

(TL:DS-70; 10-01-2000)

Incidents involving intentional or grossly negligent release or mishandling of classified information may be subject to criminal penalties. An illustrative list of criminal statutes establishing penalties of fine and imprisonment for the release of classified information is set forth in 12 FAM 558 Exhibit 558.

Once the Oligarchy is above the law, the Republic is already dead. Once the people have lost the ability to influence the central state's policies and decisions, the Republic is dead. Once the elected officials can no longer impose the nation's statues on the Oligarchy (or have lost interest in doing so because they are all corrupted cronies), the Republic is dead. Once the nation's agencies of law enforcement are stayed from indicting, prosecuting and jailing members of the Oligarchy, be they super-wealthy politicos like Hillary or super-wealthy Wall Street bankers, the Republic is dead.

The Democratic Party bosses and special interests have already selected Hillary as their shoo-in candidate for the Presidency, and these Oligarchs and special interests won't let any pesky details like laws protecting the security of the nation stand in the way of their Not So Quiet Coup.

The nation's Deep State, which I have covered extensively, has at least grudgingly approved Hillary as the next neo-conservative (never met an Imperial entanglement or drone strike she didn't like), neocolonial (we're going to put the "little people" in their rightful place, i.e. under our management) Imperial President.

A vote for Hillary, unindicted Oligarch, is a vote in favor of the destruction of the rule of law and the Republic. This is the Rubicon every voter must decide to cross or refuse to cross: vote for Hillary (destroy the Republic and surrender to Imperial Oligarchy) or refuse to vote for an unindicted Imperial Oligarch.

Prepare for the Republic to be dead, then.

Actually, it's been dead for a while.  This will just be proof of that fact.

Yup, No Bankers went to Jail. Neither did Corzine. Obama never impeached over IRS or the dozen other crimes he committed. I just Hope Hilary croaks before Jan 2017.

The FBI and DOJ won't do shit. They're too busy moving against White "extremists" who oppose their cronyism.

Loretta Lynch's office is too busy indicting people for climate change denial...

This will add to the long list of the DOJ's indictments of Wall Street and/or DC criminals....



oh, wat a second ...there's been zero?!

Not even Eric "Fast & Furious" Holder was indicted for handing guns to drug gangs?!

Vote up!

Vote down!


Just like the US/Zio backed Neo Nazi's in Kiev terrorizing gay parades in Ukraine, it was never about "freedom and love" always control and oppression. And don't forget the "conspiracy" of Gaddafi's gold, now out in the open in Clinton's emails. Everything is a fucking lie, just global social engingeering from Tribe (tm)

Not indicting Hillary is our "Rubicon moment"??? Sorry, the Rubicon got crossed back in 2008. It's just a long trip from the Rubicon to the gates of Rome.

What people miss here is...  Its important for the Oligarchs to show their minions: "Look, you are untouchable!  Work for us, do as we say, and you will be rich and powerful AND above the law!"

So to see someone go to prison, who has been such a faithful Deep State servant... Sends a very bad message to the rest of the enterprising young sociopaths.  "They can't protect their own.  Fuck em!"

Rats flee sinking ships, so they got to keep the Hildog's boat afloat, so to speak.

Pssst, Chuck!  Smell that dead-meat stench?  Yeah, that's the Republic.  And that burning smell?  Yeah, that's the Constitution, or what left of it.

You don't have to be an elite.

There was a "pop star" that diddled children and nothing happened to him.

His music is still played and celebrated.

America has served its purpose of establishing the NWO, but it still remains to be updated itself, that's where Trump comes in, he will 'clean house' like Putin did.

Dear Lord,

Please do not let her get indicted until a couple weeks after the nomination.

Thank you,

Your faithful thong.

So the same FBI that gunned down Lavoy is going to "explode" if Hillary isn't indicted?  What a riot.

Warrenn Buffett will NEVER let that happen.


He is multiple times richer than Trump.


He also desparately needs to repair Berkshire track record against SP500 by cheating.


If you think Trump can buy his way into every club including potentially the white house, guess how much access Buffett can get. He owns the whole system.

This is Donald Trump's most shocking statement yet,

However the mainstream media isn't saying a word about it!

What are they really trying to cover up?

Not so sure about 2008, IMHO the Rubicon was crossed on 11Sep2001

The Republican establishment is for Hilary. This shit is so damned obvious even Fox News is calling bullshit:

There is no republican establishment....Just establishment.

Real democrats want Sanders, Real Republicans want Trump. Establishment bet both sides of the war want Hillary to keep the Fed printing.

Well, if you do end up with Shar'iah law, please make sure that there is a law stating Hillary wears a double burka, for the sake of our children.

The republic died on 11-22-63.

Try 12-23-13 and you'll be much closer to the truth.

It ended in '61.  Lincoln suspended the Bill of Rights, while claiming that the same Constitution compelled him to make war on the CSA.

(1861, that is)

It misfired before it even began, how many presidents were there before Washington?  The revised Articles of Confederation never made it back to Congress for them to approve of it.

When George Carlin said:"Its a big club and you and I ain't in it"

he assumed his audience knew he was talking about a criminal mafia of elites..

Hillary committed crimes because that is one of the requirements to get in the club..they all have, and they all know you must be bribeable to be let in.

honest people are never allowed in by definition.

Neil Patrick Harris's picture

Agreed. This should be the date on the death certificate. JFK was the last president with any real power. Since then, presidents have been nothing but puppets for the central bank and its intelligence arms. All of our foreign policy going forward only makes sense in the context of maintaining dollar denominated markets so they can continue to print assets in secret.

This government has become a cancerous evil on the earth. If we really want to make America great again, we need to destroy it first.

The presidency has only gained power over time.

Not true. Andrew Jackson crushed the conniving banksters and destroyed the central bank of his day. What President of the last century has dared to do even attempt to do likewise?

9/11 was the Israeli-Neocon declaration of war in a military action that killed 3K of us!


None of you noticed? And  you obsess about the rule of law, among the facades of all the other functions of government also not quite working?

Wrong problem, and the elections are a skirmish, not any kind of a solution to anything.

Way past time. Serious people are prepping and opposing as they can, for example :

look at how untouchable the feds that murdered fincum are

or for that matter, even state police

even the local cops that get drunk and crash their cruiser while off duty get a veritable wet noodle whipping.

crossed back in 2008


Yes, That seems like the final blow, but seems like they set up shop in '62 (amazing free pass) and didn't let this crisis go to waste.

Unfunded liabilities bearing down and scalping the housing crash, by wealth transfer, sure look like the final nail in the coffin.

Its just a waiting game now. It cant all be paid as promised.

edit: yes '63

The Rubicon moment for the American republic was Nov. 22, 1963. 

Demdere's picture

Yes, I agree.  This is a mafia problem, and a major mafia is our own Deep State that arose from Dulles's CIA. It combined with Israel and the US Neocon political cabal and is trying for world domination.

That is what Putin has done humanity such a large service by organizing the opposition to.

"Sorry, the Rubicon got crossed back in 2008."


Uh, no. The Rubicon was crossed in 1913 with the Federal Reserve Act and 16th amendment. A strong case could be made that Lincoln crossed it in the war of northern aggression.

Ace Ventura's picture

Not a bad theory, but a more accurate moment* one could describe as the proverbial Rubicon crossing.....is probably circa 1913, with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act and the Sixteenth Amendment. That was the critical moment at which the unraveling we're seeing today began. Probably began to gain some real momentum in 1971, and reached fever pitch in 2001. From there they just reached for the nitrous button in 2008.

* There is also an argument to be made for the original Rubicon moment occuring in 1861.

cynicalskeptic's picture

Get past the false dichotomy that implies there's a difference between parties.


The Rubicon was passed on 9/11 and in all the events thereafter....

A more apt parallel might be the Reichstag Fire - only TPTB are smarter now... the veneer of a Republic is retained to mask the dictatorship

The 'Patriot' Act?!?!?!

'Homeland Security'?!?!?!

The War in Iraq and torture of prisoners... GITMO.... 


The list goes on.  Obama was simply a continuation of what was already in place - a PR effort to defuse the outrage and make sure nobody was held accountable for anything...

We Moved On... past all the crimes of the Bush Administration with a President who was little more than BushIII - owned by the Deep State and Wall Street just like his predecessors
