Virginia’s New Anti-NDAA Detention Bill Turns The Table On Feds

virginia-dont-tread

By: Kelli Sladick | Tenth Amendment Center

RICHMOND, Va. – A bill introduced in the Virginia assembly would take the next step in stopping illegal federal kidnapping under the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act.

Virginia stood alone and passed the first bill in the country addressing detention provisions written into the NDAA  in 2012. That law forbids state agencies, in some situations, from cooperating with any federal attempts to exercise the indefinite detention provisions written into sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act.

HB2144, sponsored by Del. Benjamin L. Cline (R – House District 24), takes things two steps beyond simply refusing to cooperate with the federal agents in the event of indefinite detention in Virginia. This bill turns the tables and systematically creates the type of leverage and attention D.C. would not want public if it refuses to cooperate with the state of Virginia.

This legislation would require two things from the feds if it detains a U.S. citizen in the state of Virginia.

One:

“the U.S.Secretary of Defense shall provide notification within 24 hours of the detention to both the Secretary of Public Safety and the chief law-enforcement officer of the locality in which the citizen is detained…

Two:

the U.S. Secretary of Defense or his designee shall seek authorization from the chief law-enforcement officer of the locality in which the citizen is detained prior to removal of the citizen from the locality”

A series of events is triggered upon detainment of any person in the state of Virginia by the DoD. The state of Virginia will gather and publish Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs). These are essentially partnerships with state funds attached to them. These agreements are not necessarily legally binding, but usually offer some privacy between state, private enterprises (contractors), and federal partnerships. Much of this kind of information usually remains hidden from the general public.

“The Secretary of Finance shall obtain from each cabinet secretary and submit to the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees, to be published in some manner on an annual basis, a list and description of all memoranda of understanding (MOUs) entered into between the Commonwealth and agencies of the federal government.”

This provision in and of itself provides a great service to the people of Virginia, allowing them to see exactly what types of agreements exist between the state and various federal agencies.

The legislation then adds a final provision that would go into effect if the federal government detains somebody under Section 1021 and 1022 of NDAA 2012 and fails to provide the requirements in sections one and two.

“…funds appropriated for implementation or continuation of such MOUs shall be contingent upon authorization by an act of the General Assembly in a subsequent year. The Governor may also order termination of any MOU at any time for noncompliance with this section.

“This is a brilliant approach,” Tenth Amendment Center national communications director Mike Maharrey said. “First, it shines some sunlight on what’s going on between the state and federal government. That provision alone is a win for Virginians. Then it creates significant consequences for the feds if they kidnap somebody on Virginia soil. It would allow the state to deny important resources to the federal government if its agents snatch up somebody in the night and hold them without due process. I love seeing this kind of boldness and creativity from state legislators.”

Virginia is one of DC’s (specifically the DoD’s) prime real estate providers. It serves as home to many government, private security, and intelligence contractors, particularly in the Northern Virginia area. HB2144 demands the feds comply or creates a climate where the state can end those contracts of cooperation that the DoD relies on through either the legislature or the governor.

BE VERY AFRAID! – Supreme Court Green Lights Detention Of Americans

fema

By: Right.is

Right about now, you ought to be scared to death.

Obama claims he will develop “An Appropriate Legal Regime” to permanently detain people PRIOR to having committed any crime.

The idea of these detentions would be to prevent any individual from committing a FUTURE crime. Obama even goes as far as to say he might detain someone up to TEN YEARS before they MIGHT commit a crime.

Aren’t you glad they passed the NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT? Be sure to check out:

Effectively, the way Obama skirts around the Constitution (which we all know he is a professional at) is by having the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), Sections 1021 and 1022, which authorizes indefinite military detention, without charge or without trial, any person, including an American citizen, and applies the “Laws of War,” to U.S. soil, making the United States legally a battlefield.

Want the REAL dirt on the National Defense Authorization Act? It removes all of your rights guaranteed under the Bill of Rights except the 2nd Amendment, and you know how hard he’s trying to get rid of that. The Army can come for you at 3am if they want, collect you, throw you in a hole, not tell anyone where you are, and never charge you with anything.

Sounds safe given Obama’s track record right? For more information and an in depth explanation of the act that is already law, I suggest the video below. You might be a bit more motivated to attend Operation American Spring on May 16th in Washington, DC. If you have any thoughts about this not being Constitutional, try not to forget what Supreme Court Justice Scalia said a month or so ago: Supreme Court Justice Scalia: “You are kidding yourself if you think Internment Camps could not happen again“.

Wake the hell up! Time is running out! Obama has to be stopped while there is still time. Otherwise, one day you’ll wake up in a very scary place.

Obama explains the FEMA Camps.

412-camp-brown

As Obama’s administration continues to creep closer and closer to tyranny, one could only imagine how far he’d go before Americans started to revolt.  Lucky for Obama, he’s already begun plans to contain the situation, allowing him to progress with his agenda with as little resistance as possible—through the use of FEMA camps.

We all know, Obama is working all hours of the day to try and disarm as much of the population as possible, and although he claims it’s in the name of American safety, many U.S. citizens know otherwise.  But if it were to come to a point where Americans needed to be suppressed in order for the preservation of Obama’s reign to prevail, what would he do?

Obama has recently discussed his new proposal of “prolonged detention,” and that isn’t based off of a crime you have already committed.  In fact, Obama explains that he intends to incarcerate, until he sees fit, anyone that poses a threat to America and may potentially commit a crime in the future, including Americans.

dhs fema military

Our Commander-in-Chief explains that these centers will be placed for all Guantanamo Bay prisoners that are too dangerous to let go and still remain a threat to our nation.  He goes on to mention that anyone else that is captured in this preemptive nature will also be housed here.  In the case of a revolt, how many American’s do you think will be deemed a threat to United States of America and indefinitely detained?  Where would Obama store all these people?

Enter FEMA camps.

fema camp

Obama has ordered the secret construction of FEMA camps all over the country and he’s told his minions to do it as quietly as possible.  These FEMA camps may have the appearance of a helpful establishment placed there in preparation for a time of need (i.e. natural disaster), but look a little closer and you may see otherwise.

All FEMA facilities have several layers of fencing, all of which for some “mysterious” reason, have barbed wire at the top, pointing toward the inside of the fence.  Why would you want to keep people you are helping in? Along with this, electronically operated turnstiles guard the only entrance(s) into the gated sections.  Cameras can also be seen watching closely over the supposedly abandoned sites, and wind socks have been placed anticipating the arrival of helicopters.

 fema camp locations

FEMA camps are popping up in extremely inconspicuous places—an abandoned train yard, extra space on airport property, or even industrial complexes.   Want to see where the closest one is located near you?

Check it out here—it may be closer than you think.

On top of all this, the Army is also recruiting for what they are calling an, “Internment/Resettlement Specialist (31E).”  Of course they would love to explain that these specialist’s expertise would be used in other regions of the planet, and as you all know, the military isn’t allowed to operate in the United States.  If this is the case, then why the sudden need to recruit so many more?

martial law

Obama will soon take advantage of the law that Bush passed—but never used—under his administration. Bush passed a law that would allow the current President of the United States to declare martial law at their discretion under executive action—and we all know how much Obama loves to bypass congress.  Once this is in place, the military will have the power to act as Obama’s henchmen, and throw any freedom loving patriots into these FEMA Camps.

Think they saw all the warning signs we have?

People need to act!

We can stand and fight now or end up in the history books.

A decision by the U.S. Supreme Court means the federal government now has an open door to “detain as a threat to national security anyone viewed as a troublemaker,” according to critics.

The high court this week refused to review an appeals court decision that said the president and U.S. military can arrest and indefinitely detain individuals.

The firm of William J. Olson, P.C., which filed a friend-of-the court brief asking the court to step in, noted that not a single justice dissented from the denial of the request for review.

“The court ducked, having no appetite to confront both political parties in order to protect the citizens from military detention,” the legal team said in a statement to WND. “The government has won, creating a tragic moment for the people – and what will someday be viewed as an embarrassment for the court.”

WND reported when the indefinite detention provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act were adopted and later challenged in court.

The controversial provision authorizes the military, under presidential authority, to arrest, kidnap, detain without trial and hold indefinitely American citizens thought to “represent an enduring security threat to the United States.”

Journalist Chris Hedges was among the plaintiffs charging the law could be used to target journalists who report on terror-related issues.

A friend-of-the-court brief submitted in the case stated: “The central question now before this court is whether the federal judiciary will stand idly by while Congress and the president establish the legal framework for the establishment of a police state and the subjugation of the American citizenry through the threat of indefinite military arrest and detention, without the right to counsel, the right to confront one’s accusers, or the right to trial.”

The brief was submitted to the Supreme Court by attorneys with the U.S. Justice Foundation of Ramona, California; Friedman Harfenist Kraut & Perlstein of Lake Success, New York; and William J. Olson, P.C. of Vienna, Virginia.

The attorneys are Michael Connelly, Steven J. Harfenist, William J. Olson, Herbert W. Titus, John S. Miles, Jeremiah L. Morgan and Robert J. Olson.

They were adding their voices to the chorus asking the Supreme Court to overturn the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which said the plaintiffs didn’t have standing to challenge the law adopted by Congress.

The brief was on behalf of Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall, Virginia Sen. Dick Black, the U.S. Justice Foundation, Gun Owners Foundation, Gun Owners of America, Center for Media & Democracy, Downsize DC Foundation, Downsize DC.org, Free Speech Defense & Education Fund, Free Speech Coalition, Western Journalism Center, The Lincoln Institute, Institute on the Constitution, Abraham Lincoln Foundation and Conservative Legal Defense & Education Fund.

hedgesJournalist Chris Hedges, who is suing the government over a controversial provision in the National Defense Authorization Act, is seen here addressing a crowd in New York’s Zuccotti Park.

The 2014 NDAA was fast-tracked through the U.S. Senate, with no time for discussion or amendments, while most Americans were distracted by the scandal surrounding A&E’s troubles with “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson.

Eighty-five of 100 senators voted in favor of the new version of the NDAA, which had already been quietly passed by the House of Representatives.

Hedges, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, and others filed a lawsuit in 2012 against the Obama administration to challenge the legality of an earlier version of the NDAA.

It is Section 1021 of the 2012 NDAA, and its successors, that drew a lawsuit by Hedges, Daniel Ellsberg, Jennifer Bolen, Noam Chomsky, Alex O’Brien, Kai Warg All, Brigitta Jonsottir and the group U.S. Day of Rage. Many of the plaintiffs are authors or reporters who stated that the threat of indefinite detention by the U.S. military already had altered their activities.

Video mania: The instruction manual on how to restore America to what it once was: “Taking America Back” on DVD. This package also includes the “Tea Party at Sea” DVD.

“It’s clearly unconstitutional,” Hedges said of the bill. “It is a huge and egregious assault against our democracy. It overturns over 200 years of law, which has kept the military out of domestic policing.”

Hedges is a former foreign correspondent for the New York Times and was part of a team of reporters awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 2002 for the paper’s coverage of global terrorism.

The friend-of-the-court brief warned the precedent “leaves American citizens vulnerable to arrest and detention, without the protection of the Bill of Rights, under either the plaintiff’s or the government’s theory of the case.”

“The judiciary must not await subsequent litigation to resolve this issue, as the nature of military detention is that American citizens then would have no adequate legal remedy,” the brief explained.

John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute, said that once again, the U.S. Supreme Court “has shown itself to be an advocate for the government, no matter how illegal its action, rather than a champion of the Constitution and, by extension, the American people.”

“No matter what the Obama administration may say to the contrary, actions speak louder than words, and history shows that the U.S. government is not averse to locking up its own citizens for its own purposes,” he said. “What the NDAA does is open the door for the government to detain as a threat to national security anyone viewed as a troublemaker.

Whitehead said that “according to government guidelines for identifying domestic extremists – a word used interchangeably with terrorists, that technically applies to anyone exercising their First Amendment rights in order to criticize the government.”

There already is precedent for the mass detainment of citizens.

In 1944, while the U.S. was defending itself in a war launched by Japan, the government rounded up thousands of Japanese Americans and placed them in camps under the approval of the high court in its Korematsu v. United States decision.

The new law authorizes the president to use “all necessary and appropriate force” to jail those “suspected” of helping terrorists.

The Obama administration had claimed in court that the NDAA does not apply to American citizens, but Rutherford attorneys said the language of the law “is so unconstitutionally broad and vague as to open the door to arrest and indefinite detentions for speech and political activity that might be critical of the government.”

The law specifically allows for the arrests of those who “associate” or “substantially support” terror groups.

“These terms, however, are not defined in the statute, and the government itself is unable to say who exactly is subject to indefinite detention based upon these terms, leaving them open to wide ranging interpretations which threaten those engaging in legitimate First Amendment activities,” Rutherford said.

At the trial court, on Sept. 12, 2012, U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest of the Southern District Court of New York ruled in favor of the plaintiffs and placed a permanent injunction on the indefinite detention provision.

Obama then appealed, and the 2nd Circuit authorized the government detention program.

Since the law passed, multiple states have passed laws banning its enforcement. Herb Titus, a constitutional expert, previously told WND Forrest’s ruling underscored “the arrogance of the current regime, in that they will not answer questions that they ought to answer to a judge because they don’t think they have to.”

The judge explained that the plaintiffs alleged paragraph 1021 is “constitutionally infirm, violating both their free speech and associational rights guaranteed by the 1st Amendment as well due process rights guaranteed by the 5th Amendment.”

She noted the government “did not call any witnesses, submit any documentary evidence or file any declarations.”

“It must be said that it would have been a rather simple matter for the government to have stated that as to these plaintiffs and the conduct as to which they would testify, that [paragraph] 1021 did not and would not apply, if indeed it did or would not,” she wrote.

Instead, the administration only responded with, “I’m not authorized to make specific representations regarding specific people.”

Forrest wrote that the court’s “attempt to avoid having to deal with the constitutional aspects of the challenge was by providing the government with prompt notice in the form of declarations and depositions of the … conduct in which plaintiffs are involved and which they claim places them in fear of military detention.”

“To put it bluntly, to eliminate these plaintiffs’ standing simply by representing that their conduct does not fall within the scope of 1021 would have been simple. The government chose not to do so – thereby ensuring standing and requiring this court to reach the merits of the instant motion,” she said.

“Plaintiffs have stated a more than plausible claim that the statute inappropriately encroaches on their rights under the 1st Amendment.”

Find The FEMA Camp Nearest You – Sound Fun?

For all the talk about FEMA Camps, I rarely hear about the Council of Governors in any of the more recent stories.

For those that don’t remember, the formation of the Council of Governors was s big deal when the reality of FEMA CAMPS became a little too real for those who previously referred to people like me as a “Conspiracy Theorist.” For the record, at common law the crime of conspiracy took place when there was an agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime at some time in the future.

Today, most jurisdictions require an additional element to be officially charged with Conspiracy. Most require that at least one overt act be undertaken in furtherance of that agreement, to constitute an offense. So, locking up Americans indefinitely before they have committed a crime, simply because someone with a God complex has a “hunch” they ‘might’ commit a crime at some point in the future is certainly an illegal act.

NEWSFLASH: If more than one person is in on that plan, then there is an agreement. Furthermore, the setting up of camps to illegally detain Americans is absolutely an overt act in furtherance of such a plan. “Conspiracy Theory” or “Conspiracy FACT?”  Sorry, I know how those pesky facts drive some of you crazy! Call me a conspiracy theorist all you want. I’d prefer you just call me “correct” moving forward.

Don’t take my word for it. Hear Obama talk about his plans.

In my post titled: Have You Heard Of The FEMA Council Of Governors, it says:

This was the only link I had saved and was able to dig up on the infamous FEMA Council of Governor’s, but the members of the council are dated as of 2011. Since word of FEMA camps and the terror that comes with them has spread, I cannot seem to locate any current information on the group. The closest I can offer is a copy of the actual Executive Order authorizing the council.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 13528, issued by President Barack Obama on January 11, 2010

Aside from the fact the U.S. government has close to 800 installations to lock up American citizens and where the provision for that might be in the Constitution… I wonder where this mysterious group derives its power from?

Carolina Journal wrote a great story recently about the various Council of Governments that were legislated into existence by the NCGA many years ago. These “councils” represent an additional layer of bureaucracy between NC citizen’s and their liberty, and are unelected boards who are heavily involved in pushing the UN’s Sustainable Development agenda. They focus on the areas of Land Use Planning, Water Jurisdiction, as well as Energy and Transportation within NC communities. Here is a link to the Carolina Journal article in case you missed it.

As if Council of Governments are not bad enough, President Obama signed an executive order on January 11th 2010 that created the Council of Governors, click here to read the order.

The Council of Governor’s consists of 10 governors and 8 federal appointees. The 10 Governors represent the respective 10 FEMA regions within the country.

NOTICE TWO OF THE NAMES ON THAT LIST!

Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano

Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement, Valerie Jarrett

Napolitano is the same person whom:

sent a nine-page warning memo to law-enforcement offices across the country titled “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.” Washington Post

In this memo, if you are a member of an active conservative group that opposes abortion, favors strict immigration enforcement, lobbies to protect second amendment rights, protests big government, advocates federalism or represents veterans, according to Homeland Security, you should be classified as a threat.

No conspiracy theory there!

Jarrett is best friend and close advisor to the President and has ties to radical groups like SDS, (Terrorist) Bill Ayers, and also helped recruit Communist Van Jones into the White House for a brief stay as Green Jobs Czar, thanks to Glenn Beck.

Ms. Jarrett was also stated (after being)  ”asked if she had evolved since ’68, she said while she, like Ayers, regrets “nothing,” she “would probably reject violence as a useful form of revolution.

Don’t you feel safer already?

You’ll be thrilled to know as I type this, there are men training right now to round you up like cattle and bring you to your new home!

There is still so much unknown…

We do know the camps went from dormant to active in 2014.

And we know Uncle Sam doesn’t want you to see inside.

CHECK OUT BELOW!

Reports have already come out in the past of where not to be when the SHTF, but in the event you missed it, there it is again. See below for news on where the nearest FEMA camps are in relation to you! The evidence that we the people are at risk of being placed under martial law and losing all of our rights as guaranteed by the Constitution is overwhelming.

On October 17, 2006, President Bush signed into law, the John Warner Defense Authorization Act. The law allows the President to declare a “public emergency” at his own discretion, and place federal troops anywhere throughout the United States. Under this law, the President also now has the authority to federalize National Guard troops without the consent of Governors in order to restore “public order.” The President can now deploy federal troops to U.S. cities, at will, which eliminates the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act.

In short, President Obama can now declare Martial Law anytime he sees fit to do so.

An Excerpt from the John Warner Defense Authorization Act follows:

“Use of the Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies.” Section 333, “Major public emergencies; interference with State and Federal law” states that “the President may employ the armed forces, including the National Guard in Federal service, to restore public order and enforce the laws of the United States when, as a result of a natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition in any State or possession of the United States, the President determines that domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of (“refuse” or “fail” in) maintaining public order, “in order to suppress, in any State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy.”

On October 1, 2008 the U.S. Army´s 1st Brigade of the 3rd Infantry Division began their stateside mission under U.S. Northern Command. It was the first time that an active duty Army unit has been assigned this type of mission. They are known as the CBRNE Consequence Management Response Force. They are responsible for responding to terrorist attacks and restoring order in case of civil unrest.

Among supposed humanitarian duties, their specific job is to provide crowd and traffic control and to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals without killing them.

In addition to their standard weapons, the 1st Brigade has been equipped with mobile road blocks, spike strips for stopping vehicles, shields and batons, beanbag bullets and taser guns.

In September 2008, Col. Roger Cloutier told the Army Times: “It´s a new modular package of non-lethal capabilities that they´re fielding. They´ve been using pieces of it in Iraq, but this is the first time that these modules were consolidated and this package fielded, and because of this mission we´re undertaking we were the first to get it.”

The soldiers of the Third Infantry Divison are battle-hardened combat veterans and have done three tours of duty in Iraq. They hardly seem suited to “crowd control” duties.

Ordinarily, such use of the military on U.S. soil would violate the law. However, with Bush´s order to suspend Posse Comitatus, the military is now free to patrol the streets of our cities and arrest American citizens.

Then, in the summer of 2009, a somewhat disturbing ad began appearing on internet employment sites. The ad in question was placed by the National Guard. Apparently, the Guard is now looking for people to work at internment camps.

Here is the ad as it appeared:

Correction Officer Internment / Resettlement Specialist

As an Internment/Resettlement Specialist for the Army National Guard, you will ensure the smooth running of military confinement/correctional facility or detention/internment facility, similar to those duties conducted by civilian Corrections Officers. This will require you to know proper procedures and military law; and have the ability to think quickly in high-stress situations. Specific duties may include assisting with supervision and management operations; providing facility security; providing custody, control, supervision, and escort; and counseling individual prisoners in rehabilitative programs.

So, why is the National Guard hiring “Internment / Resettlement Specialists?”

On December 31, 2011, while on vacation in Hawaii, President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law which in addition to allocating $662 billion to the Pentagon, also contains a measure which allows U.S. citizens to be taken into custody and held indefinitely without ever being charged with a crime.

Not only can any citizen deemed a threat to “national security interests of the United States,” be held forever without receiving a trial, but the military will be the ones arresting those citizens.

NDAA Section 1022, subsection c allows “(1) Detention under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force.”

This law basically repeals habeas corpus, by not requiring the government to give cause or evidence as to why the person is being detained; the 6th Amendment which ensures U.S. citizens the right to counsel, as well as the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 which prevents federal military forces from being deployed and used against U.S. citizens.

And what would the government do with all of those citizens?

The evidence that we the people, are at risk of being placed under martial law, and losing all of our rights as guaranteed by the Constitution is overwhelming.

Thirty years ago, we enjoyed the benefits of a press which took their responsibility to the public very seriously. Any signs pointing to the implementation of martial law and criminal actions committed by the federal government would have drawn the attention of our journalists.

However, in the age of “imbedded reporters,” and 90-minute network infomercials complete with anchors promoting government healthcare. Our press has a much-too cozy relationship with those in government. A complicit press is making it very easy for our government to erode civil liberties.

Indefinite Detention A Legitimate Threat For Every American (VIDEOS)

obama signs executive order

By: Jason Casella | Pontiac Tribune

Who is PANDA?  We are not an institution, we are a people. We are not an organization, we are a movement. We are not a group, a tribe, a flock, or a crowd.

We are individuals, and city by city, county by county, state by state, and nation by nation, we are taking back our future. We are People Against the NDAA, and tyranny… stops… here.

The NDAA was actually declared unconstitutional by Federal Judge Katherine Forrest in Hedges v Obama.  Judge Katherine Forrest was appointed by the Obama administration, by the way…  The very next day, the Obama administration requested an emergency stay and it was granted by another judge. As a result, the NDAA is still in full swing today. This is just another example of how the courts have failed us and it is up to us locally to stop this.

Why is the NDAA is unconstitutional? Constitutional lawyer Krisanne Hall explains in her breakdown, because it was written so vague that it could be applied to anyone.  Undefined terms such as “belligerent act” and “associated forces” leave all doors open for interpretation.

The NDAA violates Article I, Section 9- suspension clause, Article III, Section 2- grand jury indictment, Article III, Section 3- Treason, 1st amendment-free speech , 2nd amendment -right to bear arms, 4th amendment -secure in persons and papers, 5th amendment- due process, 6th amendment- speedy trial , and 8th amendment- cruel and unusual punishment.

We didn’t stop the Patriot Act which said our stuff can be taken without due process, now we have the NDAA which says they can take us without due process. This is why we must stop this now.

The ironic part of all this is with the internet, we have videos out there such as: Hillary Clinton We Created Al Qaida and General McInerney Admitting We Helped Build ISIS. Now that these draconian laws have been passed under the guise of “brown people in the desert” coming to harm Americans, we have witnessed the tables turn and now the “potential terrorist” describes  any one of us.

Also, don’t forget the CIA leaked white paper DOJ Memo stating our government claims the right to kill anyone they want without due process.  What more do you need to see before you say “enough is enough”?

Here’s how you can stop this locally: 10 Steps To Take Back Your Town From The NDAA

Locals wins:  The first city in the state of Idaho to block indefinite detention and laws of war: Victory Emmett Emmett Victory, the first county in the country to block the same measures: Victory Gem County Gem County Victory, the first city to ever pass the Restoring Constitutional Governance Resolution in one meeting: Victory Middleton Middleton Victory .

I actually presented the Restoring Constitutional Governance Act it was called HB1349 RESTORING CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNANCE ACT OF IDAHO and it passed print hearing HB1349 Passes Print Hearing a big thank you to those who voted yes for this important bill.  However, our bill never received a public hearing and just died without any updates or notice.  It appears our state house is not much better than our court system, but the more cities and counties that pass the ‘Restoring Constitutional Governance Resolution‘, the worse the State will look and the less they will be able to continue ignoring this important issue.

We are calling on anyone and everyone to take action to stop this locally and peacefully while there is still time.  By the time they are rounding people up in mass, it will be too late.  This is a call to action and you don’t have to have experience or be a lawyer, I can attest to that personally as I am not a lawyer and had never even been to a city council meeting before going through this process.  If you care about our future, your future, and your children’s children’s future—you have a right and a duty to stand.  PANDA will help you take back your town.

PANDA has created all the tools for you to be able to take back your town. Sign up for your packet and PANDA will help you do so.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men to do nothing.” –Edmund Burke

Congressmen Admit To Not Reading NDAA Before Voting For It: ‘I Trust The Leadership’

us_si

US House members admitted they had not read the entire $585 billion, 1,648-page National Defense Authorization Act, which predominantly specifies budgeting for the Defense Department, before it was voted on Thursday in Congress.

“Of course not. Are you kidding?” Rep. Jim Moran (D-Virginia) said when asked by CNSNews if he had perused the entire bill, which was just posted online late Tuesday night before it was ultimately passed in by the House by a vote of 300-119 about 36 hours later.

Moran said he did not plan to read the entire bill before voting because “I trust the leadership.”

“Do you think [House Speaker John] Boehner and [Senate Majority Leader Harry] Reid have read it?” asked CNSNews.

“I know their staff has,” Moran responded.

When pressed directly about his knowledge of every aspect of the massive National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2015, House Speaker Boehner (R-Ohio) assured CNSNews he was aware of all aspects of the multi-faceted, complex bill.

“I’ve been through almost every part of that bill, as it was being put together,” he said. “So, trust me, I am well aware of what’s in that bill.”

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Maryland) also indirectly acknowledged the near impossibility for anyone to read such a comprehensive bill. He told CNSNews he had not read the full text, but understands its contents.

“The committees have gone over it, it’s been in conference, and I have an outline of exactly what it does,” he said. “So, I know what it does.”

Upon taking control of the US House in 2010, Republicans maintained that they would allow the public to read full text of bills at least three days before they are voted on in the Lower Chamber. This promise materialized, in part, from a quote by then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in 2010, when her Democratic Party controlled the House and help shepherd the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, through Congress.

“We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it, away from the fog of the controversy,” Pelosi infamously stated of the hot-button legislation. While she may have been alluding to what she believed to be the bill’s future popularity, following the rancor and oft-disputed claims – death panels – surrounding the debate over what the legislation meant for a sensitive issue like health care, the line was used as a political cudgel to help the GOP regain the House later that year.

Yet, Republicans voted on the 2015 NDAA after the full bill had been available to read – for both the public and members of Congress – just 36 hours prior, as pointed out by InfoWars.

The legislation will now get a vote in the Senate, likely next week.

The NDAA is annual legislation that directs budgeting and expenditures for the US military. The bill passed in the House on Thursday “authorizes $521 billion in base discretionary spending for Defense Department activities, as well as $64 billion for overseas contingency operations,” according to The Hill.

The legislation authorized $6.6 billion for operations against Islamic State, the extremist group that is the target of US-led airstrikes in Syria and Iraq. That funding to combat Islamic State includes authorization of the deployment of 1,500 additional US forces and funding to train and supply Iraqi security forces over the next two years.

“I really wish to emphasize that the train-and-equip mission is just that. It in no way, shape, manner or form authorizes the use of military force,” said Rep. Adam Smith (D-Washington), the ranking Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee.

The 2015 NDAA targeted US soldiers with cuts to benefits and other services.

“The bill also reduces benefits for troops and their families. It would raise the copay by $3 for most pharmaceuticals under Tricare, the military health insurance plan,” The Hill added.

The legislation also included cuts to subsidies for military commissaries, where US service members buy groceries, by $100 million.

In addition, such massive, must-pass bills are chocked full of “pork,” or just about anything a House member, especially those with clout, can pass by House leadership and the various committees that have domain over the bill’s attributes.

For example, as RT reported Wednesday, the 2015 NDAA includes a handful of land deals including one that gives a foreign mining company 2,400 acres of national forest in Arizona that is cherished ancestral homeland to Apache natives.

“Since time immemorial people have gone there. That’s part of our ancestral homeland,” Terry Rambler, chairman of the San Carlos Apache Tribe, told The Huffington Post. “We’ve had dancers in that area forever – sunrise dancers – and coming-of-age ceremonies for our young girls that become women. They’ll seal that off. They’ll seal us off from the acorn grounds, and the medicinal plants in the area, and our prayer areas.”

Previously, the House refused an amendment to the NDAA of 2014 that would have repealed a controversial provision placed in the NDAA of 2012 that has ever since provided the executive branch with the power to arrest and detain indefinitely any US citizen thought to be affiliated with Al-Qaeda or associated organizations. The House also rejected last year an amendment that would have expedited the shut-down of the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

In January of 2014, the US Supreme Court decided against weighing in on a challenge to Section 1021(b)(2) of the 2012 NDAA, which can be interpreted in a way that allows for the government to detain without trial any American citizen accused of committing a “belligerent act” against the country “until the end of hostilities.”

Massive Federal Land Grab Hidden In This Year’s NDAA

NDAA

By: Eric Blair | Activist Post –

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) seems to be the catalyst each year for passing tyrannical laws that couldn’t stand on their own without its cover of “defense.”

Previous NDAAs gave us an open declaration of war on US citizens, indefinite detention without due process, and funding for the domestic spy grid and police militarization.

Buried deep in this year’s 1600-page NDAA (likely that not one lawmaker even read) is a massive federal land grab for special interests.

The LA Times reports:

The measure includes about 70 public lands projects, including the first national monument status for ice age fossil beds in Nevada, protection for about 275,000 acres of Montana’s rugged Rocky Mountain Front and a land swap that clears the way for a controversial southeastern Arizona copper mine.

Meant to be a compromise between environmental groups and business interests, the package would designate 245,000 acres as wilderness while simultaneously conveying more than 110,000 acres out of federal ownership for economic development, including mining, timber production and infrastructure improvements.

Some of the trade-offs drew the ire of environmentalists, who criticized what they viewed as federal give-aways to oil, gas and mining interests, particularly an underground copper mine on Arizona land prized by Native Americans. Others opposed expanded livestock grazing that could harm the habitat for the sage grouse and other sensitive species.

That’s right, Americans are having private land taken because it’s being designated as sensitive “wilderness” only to sell rights to some of that land to special interests like miners and frackers.

The US Forest Service allows fracking in public forests throughout the nation. The first national forest on the East Coast recently overcame pesky environmental complaints to push forward with fracking.

The Guardian recently reported:

Over the objection of environmental groups and Virginia’s governor, a federal management plan released on Tuesday will allow a form of natural gas drilling known as fracking to occur in parts of the largest national forest on the east coast.

The US Forest Service originally planned to ban fracking in the 1.1m-acre George Washington National Forest, but energy companies cried foul after a draft of the plan was released in 2011. It would have been the first outright ban on the practice in a national forest.

“We think we’ve ended up in a much better place, which is we are allowing oil and gas drilling,” Robert Bonnie, the US Department of Agriculture’s undersecretary for natural resources and environment, told the Associated Press in a telephone interview.

“From a policy perspective, the Forest Service allows fracking on forest lands throughout the country. We didn’t want to make a policy decision or change policy related to fracking. This decision is about where it’s appropriate to do oil and gas leasing.”

Land in national forests is commonly leased out for commercial and recreational purposes, such as mining, timber and skiing.

Some believe that fracking leases was the direct motivation for BLM raid of the Bundy Ranch in Nevada earlier this year.

Mike Adams of Natural News investigated the connection and reported:

The Bureau of Land Management says its 200-man armed siege of the Cliven Bundy ranch in Nevada is all about protecting an “endangered tortoise.” But a Natural News investigation has found that BLM is actually in the business of raking in millions of dollars by leasing Nevada lands to energy companies that engage in fracking operations.

This document from the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (1) shows significant exploratory drilling being conducted in precisely the same area where the Bundy family has been running cattle since the 1870’s. The “Gold Butte” area is indicated on the lower right corner of the document (see below), and it clearly shows numerous exploratory drilling operations have been conducted there.

After the BLM siege of Bundy Ranch failed in spectacular fashion, the feds are back to claim the property citing it as an “Area of Critical Environmental Concern.”

Others have pointed out that Senator Harry Reid has lucrative land deals and energy investments with a Chinese solar firm on the exact land that is now of critical concern.

Massive private land grabs and putting a rancher out of business for frackers is not what environmentalists envisioned when they support protecting land.

Americans have the strange belief that when the federal government claims ownership of land that citizens have ownership of that land. Nothing could be further from the truth.

As I illustrated in my article No Foraging in the King’s Forest Because It Hurts the Peasants, you don’t own that, just like Obama told you.

Is all government land “public”? Of course not. Try hiking around the NSA data center in Utah and see what happens. Try entering Yellowstone National Park without paying the $25 entry fee and see what happens. As a taxpayer (peasant), you have absolutely no rights to that land, therefore you and other citizens are not the owner of that property – but you did pay for it.

The simple truth is if you don’t have a right to use the land, you don’t own it. Claiming that not paying our fair share for using the king’s land (including our own homes) is akin to treason against the kingdom is a colossal mind-control victory for our rulers. People who believe this truly cannot see the chains that bind them.

Don’t you see that paying for permission to walk in a “public” forest actually turns it into a private forest? The owner is the US government’s creditors and their crony profiteers, not you.

Environmentalists need to WAKE UP and stop supporting the government’s land “protection” agenda.

Is Obama Planning Mass Arrests?

mass arrests

By: Sherwood Ross | Veterans Today –

Is the Obama regime preparing for mass arrests of Americans? Some indicators suggest this is a real possibility.

It has all the laws it needs to imprison anyone should it plan to make mass arrests (thanks, Congress, for the unconstitutional Patriot Act andNational Defense Authorization Act).

It has illegally compiled lists of some 8 million names, (thank you, FBI and NSA).

It has vast stockpiles of weapons and bullets, (salute the Pentagon!)

It has $385 million worth of new dormitories (i.e., prisons?) tucked away on military basescalled “National Emergency Centers” (thanks, Halliburton construction subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root).

And it has invested 120,000 on-duty officers from 73 law enforcement agencies with authority to arrest “suspects.”

If you think “it can’t happen here,” as described in the 1935 Sinclair Lewis novel of that name, think again. What’s to stop USG from doing Stateside what it has been doing around the world? After all, who has already begun killing American citizens with illegal drone strikes if not our totalitarian trendsetter President Barack Obama?

As Bill Blum, a Washington investigative journalist writes in his “Anti-Empire Report,” since the end of World War 2, the U.S. has interfered in the elections of at least 30 countries and dropped bombs on people in as many others and attempted to overthrow more than 50, mostly democratic, governments, such as Iran in 1953 and Chile in 1973. What’s stopping it from turning a democracy into a dictatorship?

President Obama has gone so far down the totalitarian road, American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Executive Director Anthony Romero proclaimed, “I am disgusted with this president…it’s (his) policies on civil liberties and national security issues I’m disgusted by.”

Romero added, Obama’s actions “raises serious questions about the administration’s commitment to the rule of law.” That’s a polite way of saying the president is a law-breaker. (In Chicago, the term to describe such people is ‘gangster.’) And extrajudicial killings are official Obama policy. As Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair claimed in Congressional testimony, the U.S. can, with executive approval, kill U.S. citizens suspected of terrorism.

“It is alarming to hear that the Obama administration is asserting that the president can authorize the assassination of Americans abroad, even if they are far from any battlefield and may have never taken up arms against the U.S., but have only been deemed to constitute and unspecified ‘threat,’’ points out Ben Wizner, staff lawyer for the ACLU National Security Project.

The key phrase here is “unspecified ‘threat’”, another way of saying “suspected.” As George Mickum, a lawyer who has represented Guantanamo Bay prisoners, told Inter Press Service (IPS), “We have killed thousands of innocent civilians while attempting to target alleged operatives. And let us not forget how frequently our intelligence has been wrong about alleged operatives. As the civilians were not engaged in hostile actions, their murders by the Obama regime become ‘war crimes.’” (Dear George, “we” have not done anything!)

And constitutional scholar Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois, Champaign, told IPS, “This extrajudicial execution of human beings constitutes murder, war crimes, and because the drone strikes are widespread and systemic, crimes against humanity. Because Obama’s drone strikes almost exclusively target Muslims and People of Color, they verge upon genocide.”

Boyle said, further, “The U.S. government has now established a ‘death list’ for U.S. citizens abroad akin to those established by Latin American dictatorships during their so-called dirty wars.”

If you think the USG will not condemn more Americans to death without trials, ponder the words of attorney John Whitehead, head of the Rutherford Institute of Charlottesville, Va.: “Unfortunately, ‘we the people’ have become so trusting, so gullible, so easily distracted, so out-of-touch, so compliant and so indoctrinated on the idea that our government will always do the right thing by us that we have ignored the warning signs all around us, or at least failed to recognize them as potential red flags.” Whitehead is the author of “A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State.”

To our knowledge,the Obama regime has not answered questions Whitehead put to it, which (my paraphrasing) include:

Q: Why did the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) buy 1.6 billion rounds of hollow-point ammunition and 7,000 fully-automatic 5.56x45mm NATO ‘personal defense weapons’?

Q: Why do the Postal Service, Department of Education, Internal Revenue Service, Social Security Administration and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration buy up weapons and ammunition in bulk?

Q: Why does the Department of Agriculture need 320,000 rounds of hollow point bullets and .40 caliber submachine guns?

Q: Why is FEMA stockpiling massive quantities of emergency supplies?

Q: Why is DHS giving away millions of dollars’ worth of federal security grants to states that federal intelligence agencies ruled have “no specific foreign or domestic terrorism threat?”

Whitehead points to a New York Times article quoting a Pentagon source who says that under Obama police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night-vision equipment; and hundreds of silencers, armored cars and aircraft.

In addition to militarizing the police, Obama’s USG is building a Main Core database, Whitehead says, that “would be used by military officials to locate and round up Americans seen as threats to national security…to be carried out by the Army and FEMA.

Whitehead concludes, “Taken individually, these questions are alarming enough. However, when viewed collectively, they leave one wondering what exactly the U.S. government is preparing for and whether American citizens shouldn’t be preparing, as well, for that eventuality when our so-called ‘government of the people, by the people, for the people’ is no longer answerable to ‘we the people.’”

The Australian federal police obtained preventative detention orders for at least three people before the counter-terrorism raids in New South Wales, in what may be the first time the anti-terrorism powers have been used.

A spokesman for the AFP confirmed late on Friday that three men had been detained under the orders following the raids and had now been released without charge.

Preventative detention orders formed part of a tranche of anti-terrorism powers granted over a decade ago, and can be sought to detain people for lengthy periods of time without charge.

The NDAA Explained In 3 Minutes (VIDEO)

New NDAA Bolsters Guantanamo-Style Indefinite Detention For Americans

ndaa

Top senators thought you wouldn’t notice. Behind closed doors, they wrote up new indefinite detention and Guantánamo provisions in the annual defense policy bill, and then waited 11 days to quietly file the bill.

But we now have the bill, and everyone can read it. And everyone should understand what is in this new National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) before the full Senate makes a big mistake and paves the way for Guantánamo-style indefinite detention being brought to the United States itself.

The new Senate NDAA:

Brings Indefinite Detention to the U.S. Itself: The bill now says that detainees may be brought to the United States for “detention pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force” (AUMF). In plain English, that means the policy of indefinite detention by the military, without charge or trial, could be carried out here at home. Right now, the number of people in the U.S. in military indefinite detention is zero. If the bill is enacted, that number could immediately jump to 100 or more.

Bolsters Claims of NDAA and AUMF Indefinite Detention Authority: The AUMF is the basis for the indefinite detention authority included in the NDAA that Congress passed nearly three years ago. Indefinite detention is wrong today and certainly cannot be sustained past the end of U.S. combat in the Afghan war. But passing a new Senate NDAA that relies on detention authority based on the AUMF, just as the U.S. combat role in the war is winding down, could be used by the government to bolster its claim that indefinite detention can just keep on going. Even when any actual U.S. combat is over.

Requires Report on Even More NDAA and AUMF Indefinite Detention Authority: As if the government didn’t already have enough claims of indefinite detention authority, the Senate NDAA asks the administration to let Congress know what more indefinite detention authority it wants.

Tries to Strip Federal Courts of Ability to Decide Challenges to Harmful Conditions: In a stunning provision, the Senate NDAA tries to strip federal courts of their ability to “hear or consider” any challenge related to harmful treatment or conditions by detainees brought to the United States. This provision tries to gut our system of checks and balances by cutting out the courts.

Violates Supreme Court Decision by Stripping Habeas Rights from Detainees Left at Guantánamo: In a classic example of why it is never a good idea for a committee to legislate behind closed doors, the Senate NDAA includes language inadvertently stripping habeas rights from any Guantánamo detainee who is not moved to the United States. Habeas is the very fundamental protection of being able to have a judge decide whether it is legal or illegal to hold someone in prison. While this is almost certainly the product of sloppy drafting, the result squarely contradicts the Supreme Court’s decision in Boumediene v. Bush, in which the Court said Guantanamo detainees have a constitutional right to habeas.

Blocks Most Cleared Detainees from Going Home: The Senate NDAA would block the transfer home of the vast majority of cleared detainees by imposing a blanket ban on transfers to Yemen, instead of continuing to allow the secretary of defense to make decisions on an individual basis. That would mean dozens of detainees cleared for transfer would remain trapped in limbo.

There is a right way and a wrong way to close Guantánamo. Charging and trying in court anyone who committed a crime – and sending anyone who isn’t charged with a crime back home or to another country – is the right way to close Guantánamo. Simply moving all of the bad Guantánamo policies to the U.S. itself is the wrong way.

The Senate NDAA gets it very wrong. We urge all senators to say “NO” to these provisions.

Congress Reaffirms Indefinite Detention Of Americans Under NDAA

 

ndaa

Camp Delta prison, at the Guantanamo Bay U.S. Naval Base (Reuters / Brennan Linsley)

The US House of Representatives approved an annual defense spending bill early Thursday after rejecting a proposed amendment that would have prevented the United States government from indefinitely detaining American citizens.

An amendment introduced in the House on Wednesday this week asked that Congress repeal a controversial provision placed in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 that has ever since provided the executive branch with the power to arrest and detain indefinitely any US citizen thought to be affiliated with Al-Qaeda or associated organizations.

“This amendment would eliminate indefinite detention in the United States and its territories,” Rep. Adam Smith (D-Washington), a co-author of the failed amendment, said during floor debate on Wednesday, “So basically anybody that we captured, who we suspected of terrorist activity, would no longer be subject to indefinite detention, as is now, currently, the law.”

“That is an enormous amount of power to give the executive, to take someone and lock them up without due process,” Smith added. “It is an enormous amount of power to grant the executive, and I believe places liberty and freedom at risk in this country.”

Pres. Barack Obama vowed when he signed the 2012 NDAA into law on December 31, 2011 that he would not use the indefinite detention powers provided to him by Congress. When that provision was challenged in federal court, however, the White House fought back adamantly and appealed a District Court ruling that initially reversed the indefinite detention clause, eventually sending the challenge to the Supreme Court where it stalled until earlier this month with the justices there said they would not consider the case.

The bill sponsored by Smith and co-author Rep. Paul Broun (R-Georgia) would have given the legislative branch a chance to repeal the same provisions that SCOTUS declined to hear, but the bipartisan amendment failed on a vote of 191 to 230.

A separate proposal from Rep. Smith meant to expedite the shut-down of the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba was also rejected early Thursday; an amendment from Rep. Dennis Ross (R-Florida) intended to cut federal funding for recreational facilities at Gitmo, however, was approved in the NDAA draft that left the House on Thursday.

On Twitter, Smith said he was “disappointed” but “won’t stop fighting to pass this critical legislation.”

And while the White House is unlikely to abandon its own fight with regards to keep the indefinite detention provision intact, the Obama administration threatened to vote this year’s NDAA because it would continue to complicate the president’s promise to close the Guantanamo Bay facility — a vow older than his own administration.

“If this year’s Defense Authorization bill continues unwarranted restrictions regarding Guantanamo detainees, the president will veto the bill,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said in a statement Wednesday evening.

When the 2011 NDAA passed Congress with the controversial indefinite detention provision included, the White House said at the time that it would veto the legislation before Pres. Obama eventually balked.

Legislating Tyranny

tyranny oppression james madison

Police state lawlessness reflects official US policy. Numerous examples explain. Congress opposes fundamental freedoms.

It terrorizes most people. So do rogue US administrations. Washington is more ruthless today than ever.

Waging war on humanity is much worse. It’s ongoing globally. It’s reflected in congressional legislation.

Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF – September 2001) approved open-ended permanent wars. They rage out-of-control. They do so at home and abroad.

The FY 2014 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) targets freedom. It prioritizes militarism and permanent wars. It authorizes over $600 billion for global belligerence, mass killing and destruction.

It’s a portion of what America spends overall. Around $1.5 trillion or more annually goes for domestic and foreign militarism.

It’s authorized when America’s only enemies are ones it invents. It’s on top of trillions of dollars of Pentagon waste, fraud and grand theft.

In December 2006, George Bush signed FY 2007 NDAA into law. Included were hidden sections 1076 and 333. Media scoundrels ignored them.

They amended the 1807 Insurrection Act and 1878 Posse Comitatus Act. They prohibited using federal and National Guard troops for law enforcement.

They did so except as constitutionally allowed or expressly authorized by Congress in times of insurrection or other national emergency.

Presidents can now claim emergency powers. They can declare martial law unilaterally. They can suspend the Constitution.

They can do it on alleged “national security” grounds. They can deploy federal and/or National Guard troops on US streets.

They can do it to suppress whatever is called disorder. It includes lawful peaceful protests. America’s First Amendment permits them.

Congress and Bush acted unconstitutionally. They did numerous times throughout Bush’s tenure. Things got worse under Obama.

On May 21, 2009, he addressed national security and civil liberties issues.

He lied saying his “single most important responsibility as president is to keep the American people safe.” He’s gone all out to harm them.

He falsely claimed Al Qaeda “is actively planning to attack us again (and) this threat will be with us for a long time…”

Uncharged detainees pose no threat whatever to America. Obama maliciously claimed otherwise. He offered no evidence proving it. There is none. Innocent victims rot in prison on his say. Others are at risk.

He said those “who cannot be prosecuted” will be held indefinitely without trial. Indefinitely means potentially forever.

Doing so violates America’s 8th Amendment. It prohibits cruel and unusual punishment. It doesn’t matter. Core rule of law principles are null and void. Diktat power replaced them.

In December 2011, Obama signed FY 2012 NDAA into law. For the first time in US history, it codified indefinite military detentions.

It authorized US presidents to order America’s military to capture, arrest, and indefinitely detain anyone anywhere in the world. US citizens are as vulnerable as others.

Indefinite detentions remain the law of the land. FY 2013 NDAA reaffirmed them. So did FY 2014 NDAA.

Detaining people based on uncorroborated suspicions or none at all remains official US policy.

It has strong bipartisan support. It violates core democratic freedoms. They’re vanishing in plain sight. Militarized injustice replaced them.

Presidents have unchecked authority. No one anywhere is safe. Abuse of power replaced rule of law protections. Tyranny is official US policy.

Foreign nationals and US citizens are vulnerable. They can be arrested for any reason or none at all. They can be indefinitely detained in military prisons.

In September 2012, Southern District of New York federal Judge Katherine B. Forrest  blocked Obama’s indefinite detention law.

She called it “facially unconstitutional: it impermissibly impinges on guaranteed First Amendment rights and lacks sufficient definitional structure and protections to meet the requirements of due process.”

“If, following issuance of this permanent injunctive relief, the government detains individuals under theories of ‘substantially or directly supporting’ associated forces, as set forth in” NDAA’s section 1021, “and a contempt action is brought before this court, the government will bear a heavy burden indeed,” she added.

Section 1021 states in part:

“Congress affirms that the authority of the president to use all necessary and appropriate force pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) includes the authority for the Armed Forces of the United States to detain covered persons (as defined in subsection (b) ) pending disposition under the law of war.”

“Covered persons” are defined as:

Anyone “who was a part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, including any person who has committed a belligerent act or has directly supported such hostilities in aid of such enemy forces.”

In July 2013, the New York Second Circuit Court of Appeals overturned Judge Forrest’s ruling. A three-judge panel did so unanimously.

They endorsed uncharged, untried indefinite detentions. Imprisoning US citizens and foreign nationals based on hearsay or nothing at all remains the law of the land.

FY 2014 NDAA reaffirmed what demands prohibiting. On December 26, Obama signed it into law. It went further than earlier. Enhancement of Capacity of the United States Government to Analyze Captured Records is authorized.

Doing so establishes new intelligence collecting. It enhances federal power. Indefinite surveillance is authorized.

The defense secretary is empowered to “establish a center to be known as the ‘Conflict Records Research Center.’ ”

It’s tasked with compiling “digital research database (information) including translations, and to facilitate research and analysis of records captured from countries, organizations, and individuals, now or once hostile to the United States.”

It’ll conduct research and analysis to “increase the understanding of factors related to international relations, counterterrorism, and conventional and unconventional warfare, and ultimately enhance national security.”

The defense secretary is authorized to create an information exchange cooperatively with the director of national intelligence (DNI).

Doing so requires involvement of all 16 US intelligence agencies, as well as intelligence related operations.

Focus is on so-called “captured records.” They’re defined as “a document, audio file, video file, or other material captured during combat operations from countries, organizations, or individuals, now or once hostile to the United States.”

They potentially include telecommunications, emails, text messages, web sites visited, medical history, financial records, and related information.

Ordinary information can be maliciously manipulated. It can be held against us. Potentially it becomes incriminating evidence.

It does if prosecutors say so. They’re experts at creating indictments out of whole cloth. Truth or fiction doesn’t matter.

Freedom is too precious to lose. More than ever it hangs by a thread. Constitutional protections don’t help.

Alleged hostility is undefined. It’s whatever Washington so designates. It includes nations, organizations and individuals. Anyone for any reason or none at all becomes a potential hostile entity.

FY 2014 NDAA sustains America’s war on terror. It continues waging war on humanity. It jeopardizes everyone everywhere. It gives presidents more diktat power.

It further compromises fundamental freedoms. It makes everyone potential enemies. It pronounces guilt by accusation. It turns planet earth into a battleground. It does so unconstitutionally.

On January 29, 1788, James Madison commented in The Federalist No. 46 (The Influence of the State and Federal Governments Compared).

He said the way to combat federal overreach is by refusing “to cooperate with officers of the Union.”

Resisting tyranny is a longstanding US tradition. Jefferson called doing so “obedience to God.”

John Locke said when governments fail people their “trust must necessarily be forfeited, and the Power (shall) devolve into the hands of those that gave it”

America’s Declaration of Independence affirmed abolishing governments abusing their just powers derived from the consent of the governed.

Civil disobedience more than ever is essential. Henry David Thoreau affirmed “the right of revolution; that is, the right to refuse allegiance to, and to resist, the government, when its tyranny or its inefficiency are great and unendurable.

America today is more unjust than ever in modern times. Arguably it Resistance is a national imperative. The alternative is full-blown tyranny. It’s what no one should accept anywhere anytime.

Can 2014 Be The Year We Put A Dagger In The Heart Of Tyranny?

tyranny

Forget your resolution to stop eating Bon-bons, resolve to end these ongoing crimes and help take our country back

As 2013 nears the end of its life, most of us are looking ahead to 2014.  However, for the criminal cabal who rule the world, dates have little meaning.  They have a standing plan to perpetrate evil 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with the end game always in mind.  All of which transcends some silly number on a calendar.  So instead of focusing on the upcoming New Year, let us focus on the core operations of the open criminal “mafia” who now occupy many elected seats in government.  In my opinion, the following is a list of criminal activity that needs to end in 2014.  However, as I stated earlier, evil operates 24/7.  It takes no vacation and doesn’t watch football.  So we need to raise a standard to combat evil, and this nation needs your help.  Pick one of these issues that suit you, or pick your own, and make it a point to “go to war” in 2014 to kill it, or at least cripple it.

Common Core– I listed this first because it is designed to target the most defenseless, and, arguably, the most impressionable among us.  Our children.  As usual, the Feds took the state’s money and promised a portion back to them if they signed on to this program.  If you haven’t familiarized yourself with Common Core, it looks to be right out of the Communist playbook.  I covered Common Core in 2013.  You can link to my story and video here.

The Nation Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) – Not much more can be written about this blatant, criminal usurpation of everything our Constitution stands for.  How can a country with our history let something like this take effect?  For writing this article, I can be detained indefinitely by our criminal government.  However, if you have a pulse, and you must if you are reading this, you are just as guilty as I am and can be detained as well, according to the NDAA.

Agenda 21– In my opinion, this signifies the “head of the snake” for the elite.  Agenda 21 is really the framework that most of these other criminal activities operate inside.  Perhaps no other policy enacted by un-elected bureaucrats has the potential to harm us more than Agenda 21.  I covered Agenda 21 in 2013.  You can link to my story and video here.

Reclaim Ownership of State Lands– As I stated earlier, Agenda 21 is the framework of this particular agenda of evil.  To be fully implemented, the elite need to move us out of the millions of acres of open land and herd us into compact cities.  Sadly, the Feds have a head-start out west.  We have the law on our side, but we need to act.  I covered this topic twice in 2013.  You can link to both of my stories and videos here and here.

End the FED– The private Federal Reserve Bank (FED) just celebrated 100 years of destruction for this nation.  The FED, in my opinion, has done more damage to this country than any other organized entity.  Brilliantly, the Fed maneuvered itself, through deception, into a position where they have “gone around” the constitution.  The Constitution contains only two sections dealing with monetary issues. Section 8 permits Congress to coin money and to regulate its value. Section 10 denies states the right to coin or to print their own money.  Yet, the FED is in control of our nation’s money.  Make the FED go away, and many of our problems go away as well.

Obamacare– I have to fight to hold my breakfast down when I think of this travesty.  How can citizens of a supposedly free country be forced, at the barrel of a gun, to buy a product from a private company?  And here is the rub, it has nothing to do with helping the less fortunate, uninsured among us.  It is all about, once again, a Federal power grab.  If you see Obamacare as anything other than what it is intended for, total population control, then you need to read more than just headlines.

Militant Homosexual Agenda–  I know that being gay is not a crime, and what people do in their own bedroom is their business.  Moreover, I have no desire to eliminate homosexuals from the planet.  What I do wish to eliminate is the overwhelming onslaught of the militant homosexual agenda.  When gays “came out of the closet” in the 70’s, they did so in an organized, planned, patient fashion.  They knew it would take 25 or 30 years to change public opinion, but they were relentless.  Frankly, our side could take a page from their playbook on how to elicit change.  Now, instead of just wanting “the same rights as anyone else” the homosexual movement wants to force the gay agenda into EVERY nook and cranny of our culture.  Has anyone, I mean anyone, in the homosexual camp stopped to think this through?  If everyone was gay, which is what I think that they lay awake dreaming about, then we would not procreate and human beings would cease to exist rather quickly.  I contend that the entire homosexual agenda is for that purpose.  What is at its core?  Eugenics

Impeach the Imposter in the White House– Sure, it seems highly unlikely that we will boot the imposter occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue before his term is up, but we shouldn’t stop trying.  If a common citizen was suspected for as many crimes as Obama and his administration, there would be entire task force created to stop the crime wave that these outlaws have perpetrated.  But, not only does this mafia operate with impunity, ½ the country still supports them.  I covered Obama in 2013, specifically his voluminous amount of lies.  My story about that can be found here.

Well, there is what I have.  I am certain, and frankly hoping, that some of you who read this can add to this list of crimes.  Is 2014 the year that we throw off our bonds to realize, and more importantly, fight for our God given liberty?  I do not know the answer to that one, but I do know that there is no shortage of causes.  Till now, there has only been a shortage of good people willing to make a stand.  Sure, you can throw away the Bon-bons for 2014.  But, please do not be responsible for throwing away the future of our posterity with your inaction.

Bigger, Badder NDAA 2014 Quietly Passed The House And Senate

ndaa

While everyone is distracted with the holiday festivities, Congress has been hard at work, screwing us over in the name of national security.

On December 20th, the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act was fast-tracked through the Senate, with no time for discussion or amendments.  And you know, its Christmas time, so they just passed it so that they could recess for the holidays. The new version of the NDAA has already been quietly passed by the House of Representatives.

It authorizes massive spending, including $527 billion in base defense spending for the current fiscal year, funding for the war in Afghanistan, and funding for nuclear weapons programs.

The indefinite detention allowed by the original NDAA is still here, and it’s actually worse now, because there are provisions that will make it easier for the government to target those who disagree.  Section 1071 outlines the creation of the “Conflict Records Research Center”, where the unconstitutionally obtained information that the NSA has collected is compiled and shared with the Department of Defense.  The information, called in the wording “captured records,” can be anything from your phone records, emails, browsing history or posts on social media sites.

The New American reports in detail on the expansion of powers:

For two years, the NDAA included provisions that purported to authorize the president of the United States to deploy the U.S. military to apprehend and indefinitely detain any person (including an American citizen) who he believes “represent[s] an enduring security threat to the United States.”

Such an immense grant of power is not only unconscionable, but unconstitutional, as well.

Regardless of promises to the contrary made every year since 2011 by President Obama, the language of the NDAA places every citizen of the United States within the universe of potential “covered persons.” Any American could one day find himself or herself branded a “belligerent” and thus subject to the complete confiscation of his or her constitutional civil liberties and to nearly never-ending incarceration in a military prison.

Finally, there is in the NDAA for 2014 a frightening fusion of the federal government’s constant surveillance of innocent Americans and the assistance it will give to justifying the indefinite detention of anyone labeled an enemy of the regime.

Section 1071 of the version of the 2014 NDAA approved by the House and Senate committees this week expands on the scope of surveillance established by the Patriot Act and the Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF).

Section 1071(a) authorizes the secretary of defense to “establish a center to be known as the ‘Conflict Records Research Center.’” According to the text of the latest version of the NDAA, the center’s task would be to compile a “digital research database including translations and to facilitate research and analysis of records captured from countries, organizations, and individuals, now or once hostile to the United States.”

In order to accomplish the center’s purpose, the secretary of defense will create an information exchange in cooperation with the director of national intelligence.

Key to the functioning of this information exchange will be the collection of “captured records.” Section 1071(g)(1), defines a captured record as “a document, audio file, video file, or other material captured during combat operations from countries, organizations, or individuals, now or once hostile to the United States.”

When read in conjunction with the provision of the AUMF that left the War on Terror open-ended and the prior NDAAs’ classification of the United States as a battleground in that unconstitutional war, and you’ve got a powerful combination that can knock out the entire Bill of Rights.

Finally, when all the foregoing is couched within the context of the revelations regarding the dragnet surveillance programs of the NSA, it becomes evident that anyone’s phone records, e-mail messages, browsing history, text messages, and social media posts could qualify as a “captured record.”

After being seized by the NSA (or some other federal surveillance apparatus), the materials would be processed by the Conflict Records Research Center created by this bill. This center’s massive database of electronic information and its collaboration with the NSA converts the United States into a constantly monitored holding cell and all its citizens and residents into suspects. All, of course, in the name of the security of the homeland. (source)

One thing that was omitted is the amendment on the prosecution of sexual assaults in the military.  So, we can all be locked up indefinitely for crimes that haven’t been proven, but they don’t care so much if military members continue to rape other military members.

The final compromise, fashioned by the leaders of the House and Senate Armed Services committees, leaves out Democratic language that would have eased restrictions on transferring Gitmo detainees to the United States — a provision that would have helped the administration achieve its goal of shuttering the facility.

It also does not include a controversial amendment by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand to remove decisions about prosecuting sexual assault from the military chain of command. The New York Democrat says she’s secured a commitment from Reid to bring her proposal to the floor as a stand-alone measure next year. Although she may get her vote, the legislation is not expected to survive in the Republican-controlled House.

Thursday’s defense bill also sidesteps the debate over Iran. Senators who wanted to offer amendments imposing tougher sanctions were blocked because of the bill’s fast-track process, which supporters said was necessary to get it finished before the end of the year. So Iran sanction hawks’ efforts will have to wait until next year. Movement now toward stricter sanctions, the White House has warned, would undermine its ongoing negotiations to curb Iran’s nuclear program.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) suggested Reid had fast-tracked the defense bill because he “can’t stomach” a politically uncomfortable Iran vote. (source)

Unsurprisingly, there is little hope that President Obama will fail to sign this into law.

Under the new and “improved” NDAA, I’m a belligerent for writing this, and you’re a belligerent for reading this. God help you if you email someone about it or share it on Facebook. We’re all going to be busted as belligerents under this one.

See you at Gitmo or the FEMA camps!

3,000 Outraged Truckers To Shutdown D.C., Demand Obama Impeachment (VIDEO)

3,000 Outraged Truckers To Shutdown D.C., Demand Obama Impeachment

3,000 truckers plan to descend on Washington, D.C. five days from now, to protest the NDAA’s indefinite detention without trial provision (signed into law by President Obama) as well as to raise awareness for what they perceive as continued Obama administration support for radical Islamic factions in Egypt and Syria.

Despite the near mainstream media blackout of the truckers’ plan, it could shut down the entire city.

NDAA-Type Detentions Being Used In California?

NDAA-Type Detentions Being Used In California?

The National Defense Authorization Act strips the right of habeas corpus by applying broad detention power, using terms such as “substantially supported” and “associated forces,” thus allowing for the detention of any person, including American citizens on U.S. soil without due process.

Dozens of states and local jurisdictions have continued to move toward nullifying this unconstitutional threat against basic civil liberties and human rights. California is among those who have made significant, bipartisan, nearly unanimous statements to rebuke federal overreach.

However, despite California’s apparent advancements toward transparency, the detention of 8 U.S. citizens in Oakland, California is raising concerns among civil liberties experts for its insistence on complete secrecy until the future release of information is determined solely by police.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that a new crime fighting strategy introduced by Mayor Jean Quan, dubbed Operation Ceasefire, has built-in secrecy regarding details of arrests that are made. It sounds quite a bit like the NDAA in its ability to sweep people into a legal black hole.Similar to the NDAA, Oakland’s Operation Ceasefire is using one segment of crime to create entirely new rules for those who become targets.
 
The eight individuals who were arrested August 14 and 15 are part of the program which is aimed at reducing gang-related gun violence. However, not a single piece of information is being revealed about these individuals other than the number detained. The department says that releasing more specific information would thwart an ongoing investigation and perhaps endanger those involved. It’s a strange assertion given that general details such as simply what crime they are being suspected of wouldn’t reveal very much. Nevertheless, civil rights attorneys and a former San Francisco police chief both state that this is unusual at best, and violates core liberties at worst:

“I would say it is unusual,” said Tony Ribera, a former San Francisco police chief who runs the International Institute of Criminal Justice Leadership at the University of San Francisco. “I certainly can’t think of a situation (where I did it), but that certainly doesn’t mean they are doing anything illegal. I don’t know how they are building their cases.” 

First Amendment attorneys questioned the rationale for withholding the names of suspects in custody for so long and said doing so can violate their civil rights. 

“The very basic rule of law in the United States is that people do not disappear into the hands of police. They do not disappear into the justice system,” said Peter Scheer, executive director of the First Amendment Coalition in San Rafael. “It is a fundamental principle in this country that the police have to be transparent about who they have arrested and why.”

Mayor Quan disagrees:

On releasing the names, Quan’s spokesman, Sean Maher, said the mayor deferred to police to “protect the integrity of the investigation.” (emphasis added)

Deferring to police instead of the rule of law is what is called a Police State. The police have unilaterally created a program which seems to sidestep core legal principles and are enforcing it with little to no external oversight. But despite criticism, the department is defiant saying that the program will continue and more arrests will be made, with details being given at a future time of their choosing.

Perhaps this new program serves as an example of the trickle down tyranny that takes place amid a lawless environment where “authorities” are permitted to be the law makers, instead of law enforcers.
