‘We’re the Government – We’ll Catch You’
by William Norman Grigg
There is …no human right, natural or Constitutional, that we have not seen nullified by the United States Government.
Of all the crimes that are committed for gain or revenge, there is not one that we have not seen it commit – murder, mayhem, arson, robbery, fraud, criminal collusion and connivance.
~ Albert Jay Nock, Our Enemy, the State
“If you ever f**k with me, you know who we are,” arms dealer Nicholas Bickle told an associate during a drive in the Nevada desert. “We’re the government, we’ll catch you.”
Prior to his arrest in October, Bickle was a Navy SEAL who allegedly ran a small arms smuggling ring, importing at least 80 AK-47s from Iraq and Afghanistan. Many of the machine guns – which were manufactured in Russia, Romania, Bulgaria, and Iraq – were embossed with the letter “j,” an abbreviation of the Arabic word “jaesh,” which refers to the military. The ATF has charged Bickle and two of his colleagues – Andrew Kaufman, Jr. and Richard Paul – with violations of federal firearms registration laws.
Apparently, selling firearms without government permission is a far more serious offense than murdering people abroad on the government’s orders.
