The former prime minister of Israel, Ehud Olmert, has been imprisoned for corruption, and the current president of Brazil, Dilma Rouseff, has been impeached and forced to step down while she is being tried for simply not disclosing financial spending by her administration. We in the United States have never truly held a president accountable under the rule of law. In 240 years since we became a free nation, not once has our chief executive officer been legally removed from office. It has become more than a bad joke that the United States has the most honest legal and government system. Sure, we are better than most, but the actions of Israel and Brazil, to name just two, stand as a testament to our self-delusional sense of false superiority.
But the problems go far deeper than lack of desire if not inability to remove a sitting president for high crimes and misdemeanors. Based on my life's experience of 40 years fighting against the dishonest tyranny of our so-called government, as I chronicled in my autobiography, "Whores: Why and How I Came to Fight the Establishment!," our entire body politic is essentially paralyzed in holding the high and mighty self-styled elites accountable under the rule of law. Indeed, having been a prosecutor for the U.S. Department of Justice during the early part of my career, I saw close up and personal how the chief law enforcement agency of the United States usually prosecuted only those who could not truly fight back with full force, and looked the other say when it was politically inconvenient to take actions – the best modern-day cases being the crimes committed by Bill and Hillary Clinton and now Barack Hussein Obama, not to mention those other "privileged" criminal "elite" infesting the rest of our legal and government systems.
Alongside our compromised Department of Justice and our nearly totally corrupt legislature, embodied in the U.S. House of Representative and the U.S. Senate, are the nation's judicial officers. With few exceptions, on the federal level – Judges Royce Lamberth and Richard Leon and former Judge Stanley Sporkin being just three who come to mind – most judges are simply the tool of political establishment that got them their jobs. Let me use this column to remind my readers why a Donald Trump or even a Bernie Sanders are the political "catch of the day"; this stems from an increasing understanding by the people that the legal and government establishment is nearly completely comprised and corrupt. These two candidates, whether one agrees with their agenda or not, at least call it like it is.

Here are just three examples of what I am talking about concerning our judiciary.
First, over the last many years, others and I sought to bring court challenges to force President Obama to disclose his original birth certificate to prove that he was eligible to run for the presidency in 2008 and 2012. Save for a minority opinion by Chief Justice Roy Moore of the Supreme Court of Alabama, who wrote that Obama should have had to disclose his original birth certificate to state election authorities to qualify to be on the ballot, not one other judge in Florida, where I also brought suit, would confront the issue. Indeed, their orders dismissing these legitimate cases said almost nothing. The bottom line: It was a "no no" for these judges to do their duty in the face of almost certain attacks by the likes of Obama and his racist minions who run interference for him (namely the Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matters crowd) that these judges are prejudiced against and thus racists concerning African-Americans. To be fair, nor would these judges hear eligibility challenges over the presidential candidacies of Republican candidates Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, who also were not legally eligible to run for the office of president. The lesson: If as a judge you want to get ahead and perhaps get a higher appointment, don't gore the ox of the political establishment.
Second, there is the current Hillary Clinton email scandal, where I have four cases pending in the courts. The most powerful case, a racketeering action filed in my home county of Palm Beach in Florida, was predictably dismissed without cause by a Clinton-appointed judge. The case is now in front of the federal appeals court in Atlanta, and there it sits, the judges afraid to even hold oral argument lest they actually have to rule that it should go forward before the Wicked Witch of the Left "wins" the Democratic Party presidential nomination. We at Freedom Watch have three other cases under the Freedom of Information Act getting to the bottom of the scandal, which not only entails Ms. Hillary's misuse of classified information but her use of her so-called private server to illegally do business with Iran and other terrorist interests while serving as secretary of state. These cases, randomly assigned to judges appointed by Muslim in Chief Obama, predictably have sat around for years, without any judge holding the State Department's feet to the fire. And, the few judges who have done so in related cases, like the one Judicial Watch filed before Judge Emmet Sullivan, have been slowed down, even though the judge did grant discovery. The reason for this judicial foot-dragging is to allow the Wicked Witch to gain her presidential nomination before the proverbial excrement hits the fan.
Third, there is the criminal prosecution of Cliven Bundy, that God-fearing patriot who stood down a tyrannical government, along with peaceful armed militia. This was perfectly legal under the Second Amendment of our Constitution. The judge assigned to this case is one Gloria Navarro, a Latina activist handpicked by the highly corrupt criminal Sen. Harry Reid and appointed by King Obama. As alleged in the complaint filed earlier this week (see www.larryklayman.com), working in concert with Reid and Obama, who have called Cliven Bundy a domestic terrorist and threatened him with prosecution over his use of the word "Negro," Navarro has violated Bundy's right of counsel and a speedy trial in violation of his Sixth Amendment constitutional rights, all with the intent to have him imprisoned in solitary for life.

These are just a few examples of our corrupt judiciary, compounding the corruption of the legislative and executive branches of government. And, it not only explains the popularity of Trump and Sanders, but underscores why we have entered into revolution. It is also why I continue to vigorously fight the establishment.
