Are Supreme Court Justices Too Timid To Battle for America’s Sovereignty?


By Daniel New

Even if you attended government schools, you may well remember that event in history. An ancient Roman law forbade any general to enter the republic of Rome with a standing army—and the small Rubicon River was one of those borders. When Julius Caesar returned from his conquests of Gaul and Britain, he was forbidden to cross that Rubicon River with his army.

Everyone knew that civil war would be the result, if he defied the law and brought his army toward Rome. And yet, in the name of saving the Republic, Caesar decided to defy the rule of the Senate and to bring glory to Rome under what became the empire.

Even as the republic died, the empire grew and became more powerful than ever before, but the rule of law had been subverted, and the iron rule of emperors replaced it.

Michael New refused to submit to UN authority as an American soldier. He was court-martialed for his principled stand and, on April 24, the Supreme Court ruled against him. With that, they took the U.S. across the Rubicon toward legal chaos and empire.

Yes, I know: We’ve been moving that way for nigh unto a century, but this event is a “continental divide” in the process.

As a result of that decision, it may well be that the final nail has been placed in the coffin of our onceproud republic, and we are now a nation where law is of no importance—precedent, political agenda and ruling parties will determine our direction, both in terms of wars and of foreign relations, until the New World Order settles down to bring us that which George Orwell predicted.

Our soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen will serve, fight and die for the empire, not for the Constitution of the United States. Of course, they will not be told that, but then, do politicians tell the truth to their military? They are considered expendable by those who seek power.

The Supreme Court, in issuing a statement of two words, “petition denied,” has stated that in the American judicial system today, it does not matter about due process, it does not matter about the “standards of review,” it does not matter if the president makes up his own laws and then classifies them so no one can read them. None of this matters. All that matters is that, “Soldiers must obey orders.”

Now there’s a question that we thought was settled at Nuremburg.

Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Patriotic American, for your support during our 11-and-a-half year legal battle. We could not have done it without you. Only God can know of the multitude of supporters, the prayers and the active support that you and thousands of others have done in the last decade.

A special thanks to the now defunct Spotlight and American Free Press, which brought the first printed story about Michael New to the attention of the American people back in 1995 and has followed the story closely ever since.

If we conclude that the republic is dead, what then? Do we all shout, “Long live the empire”? I don’t think so. Bon voyage, American republic. We’ll miss you.
