THE KIND OF JUSTICE THAT IS COMING YOUR WAY IF YOU SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE AMERICAN NEW WORLD ORDER SYSTEM
By: SR Shearer
"... the children of this world are in their
generation wiser than the children of
light." (Luke 16:8)
Radical Lawyer Lynne Stewart must
serve a decade in prison - a sentence that could keep her
behind bars until she turns 80. The controversial civil rights
attorney was convicted in 2005 of "associating" with Omar
Abdel Rahman in prison. Stewart was initially sentenced to
28 months. In an unusual move last year, the government ordered
that she be re-sentenced.
Stewart was shocked by the new sentence.
At the time of her 2006 sentencing, she brazenly told the
judge she could do the 28 months "standing on my head."
Yesterday, Stewart, who has battled breast cancer and other
illnesses, was more circumspect: Flanked Thursday by family
and supporters, Stewart, 70, quietly wiped away tears as U.S.
District Judge John Koeltl handed down his decision to give
her 10 years and a month. The stiff sentence was four times
what she originally faced. Stewart warned
others who would dare to follow in her footsteps:
"I have since learned ...
that nobody, particularly this 70-year-old woman can do
28 months standing on their head."
"In January, 2002, Attorney General John Ashcroft spent $8,000
for curtains to cover up the semi-nude statutes depicting
the 'Spirit of Justice' and the 'Majesty of Law' in the Great
Hall of the Department of Justice Headquarters. What most
passed off then as the silly protestations of an authoritarian
and puritanical Attorney General seem now, in retrospect,
to have been a symbolic gesture that something more sinister
"For no drapes, no disclaimers, no reassurances can veil
the threat to law and justice represented by Ashcroft's single-handedly
imposing a regulation that effectively ended-for certain defendants
attorney-client privilege and confidentiality.
"The regulation allows the Department of Justice, unilaterally,
without judicial oversight, and with no meaningful standards,
to conduct surveillance on attorneys' contact with people
in federal custody, be they detainees with no pending charges,
defendants awaiting trial, or convicted persons, "to
the extent determined to be reasonably necessary for the purpose
of deterring future acts of violence or terrorism."

"Before the eavesdropping regulation, the government had
begun to impose on detainees, defendants, and convicts Special
Administrative Measures (SAM) that restrict communication
with everyone, including their defense attorneys. Vaguely
worded to trap the unwary, the regulations prohibit not only
contact with the outside world, but also contact with the
attorney that the Department of Justice deems to be outside
the scope of 'legal representation'. Add to SAM's Foreign
Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants (issued for
the broad purpose of gathering foreign intelligence information,
without the necessity for showing that the target is involved
in terrorism or secret intelligence activities), and the DOJ
[Dept. of Justice] already has a free line to attorney-client
communications when the client is alleged to be associated
"FISA warrants cannot be used to target Americans EXCEPT
in the 'national interest' and to protect against acts of
terrorism. The eavesdropping regulation, which requires no
warrant and can be imposed at any time upon 'notice' to the
attorney and client that they 'may' be monitored, allows DOJ
to target attorneys directly without suspicion of their being
involved in acts threatening national security."
obviously the "Except" provision
(see above) is an enormous hole in the law since it is up
to the Justice Department to decide when a person can be
declared a "terrorist threat" – especially in light of the
fact that there is no appeal from such a ruling.
Client confidentiality is the very foundation of the attorney-client
relationship. A lawyer cannot reveal information relating to
client representation unless the client gives informed consent
or the disclosure is otherwise necessary to carry out the representation
(ABA Model Rule 1:6). But this protection is rendered null by
the government's claim that if a client is labeled as having
connections to terrorism, then every communication with a client,
whether taking place in person, by fax, by phone, or email,
can be monitored by the government.
Plainly, what this does is to intimidate defense lawyers in
so-called terrorist cases – after all, what potential defense
attorney would not be troubled by the thought that the government
might be privy to every attorney-client communication ("may"
is the operative word, for the government does not tell the
attorney if he or she is actually being monitored)? How
might that chill client contact? Lawyers representing "terrorist"
suspects have talked about the difficulty of communicating with
clients. Some only do so in person now, and even then, only
by passing notes so as not to be overhead.
Along with Special Administrative Measures, the October 31,
2001 regulation renders the Sixth Amendment (the right of an
accused person to have recourse to be competently represented
by an attorney) meaningless – after all, even if the government
does not indict the attorney for illegal conduct in the course
of representation, the government can know every aspect of the
case, every communication with the client, every legal and factual
argument, every case read.
Sheik Abdel Rahman
This brings us to the matter of Lynne Stewart: Stewart was
a member of the court-appointed defense team for Sheik Abdel
Rahman. Rahman is now serving a life sentence in connection
with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. His sentence was challenged
on appeal, but affirmed. Stewart continued to act as one of
Rahman's attorneys after his incarceration. Rahman was connected
with an Islamic group that is on the Secretary of State's list
of terrorist organizations. For this reason, as well as for
the bombing, he is a person of intense interest to the government.
Accordingly, for over two years, his conversations with Stewart
In the Spring of 2002, Stewart was suddenly and without warning
arrested by the FBI, at her home in Brooklyn, for materially
aiding terrorism by virtue of making a public press release
to Reuters on behalf of her client, Sheik Abdel Omar
Rahman of Egypt.
Very obviously, Stewart's arrest proves beyond any doubt that
an attorney can be charged with aiding and abetting terrorism
if he engages in everyday acts of lawyering. Thus, Stewart's
reply to the press about her client's condition became an act
of aiding and abetting terrorism.
That someone can be linked to terrorism in such a capricious
manner should give people everywhere cause from not speaking
out regarding the continuing evolution America into a police-state.
This is EXACTLY the kind of justice
that Christians should expect to receive when one speaks out
against the American New World Order System, and particularly
against the church's involvement with it.
We URGE you to see the following video:
Lynne Stewart ordered to prison
"THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
THEN THEY CAME for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
THEN THEY CAME for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up."

eschatological viewpoint it represents; WE NEED YOUR
HELP BECAUSE WE DO NOT "LINK" WITH OTHER SO-CALLED "CHRISTIAN"
WEBSITES which are, for the most part, "in the tank"
insofar as their loyalty to the United States is concerned
- a loyalty that has made them partners in the BLOODY
trail the American military has left in its TERROR-RIDDEN
rampage throughout the world, as well as making them partners
in the abject poverty that American corporations have
imposed on the peoples and nations the American military
machine has ravaged - A BLOODY, TERROR-RIDDEN RAMPAGE
THAT HAS TO A LARGE DEGREE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THE NAME
OF THE "PRINCE OF PEACE." [Please see our articles,
