""The list of addressees used for the e-mail includes Peter Sutherland (Former Attorney General, Chairman of Goldman Sachs International Bank, Steering Committee Member of the Bilderberg Group, and European Chairman of the Trilateral Commission): who, with due regard for his Trilateral Commission Chairmanship, and correctly or otherwise, I suspect may be one of the main driving forces behind the production of laws which are unconstitutional: and consequently illegal."  
Democracy or Despotism?
by W. Finnerty.  Tue Jun 19, 2007 13:19
I believe Michael Smith's assessment at the Tue Jun 19, 2007 10:49 posting above (from The Irish Times) is correct for many reasons.
I further believe that if this assessment gets enough support it will help the new Minister for Environment, Heritage and Local Government (John Gormley TD ) to do what's right by the People of the State, as opposed to "what's right" by a relatively small clique of despotic lawyers who appear to be successfully hoodwinking the people into believing they are genuine "Gods" of some kind.
All of my research during the past several years suggests the bulk of these lawyers really are gods all right: but it's the "tin god" variety, of the kind that's badly lacking in anything of real value or substance.
That said, I thankfully have no reason whatever to believe our legal profession consists ENTIRELY of tin-gods, and what's needed now (it seems to me) is for a team of our high quality lawyers to FULLY check-out the constitutionality of "the insidious 2004 National Monuments (Amendment) Act".
Personally, I would describe it as "insidious and in all probability unconstitutional": in other words, a piece of illegal law very likely - by virtue of the fact that it badly violates parts of Bunreacht na hEireann (the BASIC law of Ireland) in the ways described below by constitutional law expert Dr Gerard Hogan SC.
"Gerry Hogan, senior counsel for Mr Salafia, claimed the legislation used to push through the project was unconstitutional. He said the National Monuments (Amendment) Act 2004 weakened the role of the Oireachtas (Ireland's national parliament) by giving the minister discretionary powers to determine the fate of the country's heritage. Mr Hogan claimed the state's duty to protect monuments had been 'seriously compromised'. (This quote has been taken from .)
The facilities and procedures Minister Gormley needs for having the constitutionality of The National Monuments (Amendment) Act 2004 checked are described at ; and, please note, it is nowhere stated at this location that the Attorney General (Paul Gallagher) has to give Minister Gormley - or anybody else - his permission to carry out such a check.
I can't say I envy Minister Gormley, and the severely out-numbered position I suspect he's in just now; but, while wishing him well, I imagine that he (and his supporters) might like at this point in time to consider the following lines:
        " There is a tide in the affairs of men,
          Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
          Omitted, all the voyage of their life
          Is bound in shallows and in miseries. "

Democracy or Despotism? 
Which path will our new Government take? 
These questions were put to a number of senior lawyers and politicians yesterday. For anybody interested, please see .   
Some may wish to know that the list of addressees used for the e-mail at the address just above includes Peter Sutherland (Former Attorney General, Chairman of Goldman Sachs International Bank, Steering Committee Member of the Bilderberg Group, and European Chairman of the Trilateral Commission): who, with due regard for his Trilateral Commission Chairmanship, and correctly or otherwise, I suspect may be one of the main driving forces behind the production of laws which are unconstitutional: and consequently illegal.

The above text has been copied from the following Indymedia (Ireland) location:
"Since 1973 WCP (Wilmer Cutler & Pickering, Law Firm) has had continuous representation within the Trilateral Commission membership, and has played a major role in applying the global agenda to courts around the world."
"This writer is reminded of Trilateralist Richard Gardner’s 1974 treatise titled 'The Hard Road to World Order' in which he declared that the new world order would be better achieved, in lieu of a frontal attack, by 'an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece…' " 
And what better way to slyly erode it "piece by piece" than by gradually producing (and using) unconstitutional law which undermines both the constitution and the national sovereignty of the targeted states in question?
The above two pieces of text (in quotes) in this section are by Patrick Wood, of the Global Elite Research Centre, and they can be seen in context at: .
To date, and despite several e-mail reminders sent to Mr Greg Nolan (Lawyer) at his law firm, I have still not received ANY reply of ANY kind to the registered letter I sent to Mr John Glynn (Principal Lawyer at Patrick Hogan & Co) on April 3rd 2007, a copy of which can be viewed at .
As can be seen via the address immediately above, several major attempts have been made by me to raise (with Mr Glynn and others) the extremely serious issue of "unconstitutional legislation": but, he appears to be failing COMPLETELY to respond to me in any way, while I continue to have to live in forced-exile, because that is the only way I can avoid being corruptly criminalised - and possibly imprisoned - for trying to raise the issue of all the unconstitutional legislation that has been produced in the Republic of Ireland during the past 10 years or so. 
It is now my deepest hope that the new Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform (Brian Lenihan TD) will look into this whole shockingly corrupt business, and deal with it as a matter of high priority: having due regard for the "To Whom It May Concern" letter regarding my situation from Dr Michael McCavert GP (dated October 28th 2005), a copy which can be viewed at the following address: .
