CIVIL RIGHTS, AMERICAN VERSION
1. List of Notes: An Eclectic Collection Deserving of a Wider Audience, Shaun Usher, 2015.
2. Lots of book references in these articles on the Civil Rights. Be sure to check out Gail Jarvis. He’s excellent.
3. Also see these at Mises.
4. Though this is behind a paywall, you will be greatly rewarded for your time and money here by learning from a master historian, Dr. Gary North.
5. The US Commission on Civil Rights, led by Martin Castro, published a report in September that stated civil rights, as determined by the government, are more important than religious rights. This 300 page report is the direction that progressives are taking in our court system. Christians can believe whatever they want to in their head, but their behavior cannot violate others civil rights.
6. I see persecution coming for Christians because progressives want to do away with religious freedom. If Hillary is elected, the judges in the circuit courts can rule in favor of LGBT rights, despite a Republican Congress. Looks scary to me . . . . William McGurn of the Wall St. Journal confirms that Hillary and Obama agree with Mr. Martin Castro.
1. Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent, Harvey Silverglate with a Foreward by Alan M. Deshowitz, 2011.
To prove Silverglate’s point, William L. Anderson writes
To prove his point, he noted how the federal prosecutors in New York when Rudy Giuliani was US Attorney for the Southern District of New York regularly played a game in which they would see if various celebrities and others, including Mother Theresa, had broken federal criminal law. The result, unfortunately, was that for each person no matter how good his or her public character, a federal statue existed that would place them in prison.
Being that Giuliani’s prosecutors — and Giuliani himself — regularly committed felonies by selectively leaking grand jury information to favored journalists in order to damage the ability of accused people to defend themselves. He also did it to stoke the fires of the anti-business mobs, and these prosecutors were quite familiar with how to fashion the ever-malleable federal statutes to turn ordinary acts into crimes. During the 1980s, when Giuliani was at DOJ, the New York office engaged in a massive show of force against Wall Street firms and other business enterprises in large part to enhance the coming political careers of Giuliani and others who worked under him, and to appease the anti-business Democrats and Republicans who were anxious to declare to roll back what they called the “Decade of Greed.”
