Drone program attacks nation’s checks, balances

The Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station has been converted into a drone base as of April 1. This is an overt act that joins it to the assassination program that is run out of the White House. The attorney general has said that the Fifth Amendment’s guarantee of due process of law does not necessarily mean “the courts.” This approach seems to relegate the judiciary to being an optional branch of government.

The drone program is ill-advised and immoral, but aside from that, it is an attack on the checks and balances upon which the government was founded.

I have sent a complaint to the Niagara County district attorney, who has jurisdiction to investigate illegal combinations in the county, and I hope that a suitable investigation will be undertaken.
