The US constitution is violated daily, and the main perpetrators are the president and top federal government officials.
That is the view of Richard Mack, a former Arizona Sheriff who is now advocating state sovereignty as the only way to keep constitution-abiding America intact.
In 1994, he made national headlines when he filed a law-suit against the federal government. Since then, he has been encouraging state law enforcement officials to rise up against federal agents.
“When I was a cop I made a huge mistake – I actually read the constitution, and specifically the Bill of Rights. And I saw, on the one hand, what the constitution says and I saw, on the other hand, what the government is actually doing,” he said in an interview to RT.
Oil Expert and BP Critic Matt Simmons Suddenly Dies
Matt Simmons, a former oil investment banker and famous for his controversial criticisms of BP, is dead.
There are conflicting reports about the cause of death. Some media cite police reports saying the cause was a heart attack. However, according to WLBZ-TV in Maine, the Knox County Sheriff’s Department said Simmons drowned at his house oi North Haven late Sunday night.
Simmons founded Simmons & Co. International, one of the world´s leading investment banks for the energy industry, and had recently retired to work full time on his newly founded Ocean Energy Institute, promoting the use of offshore wind power.
Simmons also served as energy adviser to U.S. President George W. Bush. He was a member of the National Petroleum Council and the Council on Foreign Relations.
He became famous as a leading advocate of the “peak oil” theory, saying that the production capacity for oil would drop soon and rapidly.
More recently Simmons got publicity with dire calls about the fate of the Gulf of Mexico after the BP oil catastrophe. One month ago, he said on CNBC that scientists had estimated a flow rate from the uncontrolled well of 120,000 barrels per day — instead of the initially official number of just 5,000 barrel per day.
Simmons said that the well could not be easily stopped, and that the relief wells would fail to stop the spill. He even suggested that the best option would be to detonate a small nuclear bomb undersea to kill the well.
