A number of times we have noted here that the government has been preparing to put down the imminent rebellion of the American people that are increasingly rising up against burgeoning suppression of the 99%…
As you peruse the following points, keep in mind that the government changed laws that allowed all mainstream media to be taken over by globalist megacorporations in order to misinform and “dumb down” the masses. OK then, we have previously proved that…
bogus wars have been started on phony concocted pretenses (e.g., “Weapons of Mass Destruction”) to beef up and hone the military,
9/11 was allowed to occur in order to create the “war on terror” to begin the process of negating civil liberties of Americans and to allow the initiation of measures to control the masses,
numerous “relocation camps” and FEMA camps large enough to “encamp” hundreds of thousands of Americans have been constructed and stocked under the guise of imprisoning terrorists and “dissidents”,
millions of GPS-controlled stun-gun-equipped ankle “bracelets” have been stashed away in warehouses to control imprisoned terrorists and free-roaming “dissidents”,
legislation has been enacted to allow the government to shut down the internet and social media,
and now legislation has passed the Senate to allow the military to “detain” any and all Americans as they so choose or is instructed to do by the government…
The following are some excerpts to a Wired article on the ongoing dissipation of all human rights in America. Don’t sleep through the revolution, you may wake up in Gitmo, or worse in one of the relocation camps in the barrens of frozen Alaska where they won’t bother with comfort… “Do Something” now, while you have a chance, a quickly dwindling chance…
Here’s the best thing that can be said about the new detention powers the Senate has tucked into next year’s defense bill: They don’t force the military to detain American citizens indefinitely without a trial. They just let the military do that. And even though the leaders of the military and the spy community have said they want no such power, the Senate is poised to pass its bill as early as tonight [it was passed, cloaked within an "appropriations" measure].
There are still changes swirling around the Senate, but this looks like the basic shape of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act. Someone the government says is “a member of, or part of, al-Qaida or an associated force” can be held in military custody “without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force.”
But far more dramatically, the detention mandate to use indefinite military detention in terrorism cases isn’t limited to foreigners. It’s confusing, because two different sections of the bill seem to contradict each other, but in the judgment of the University of Texas’ Robert Chesney — a nonpartisan authority on military detention — “U.S. citizens are included in the grant of detention authority ['opinions' are unnecessary, we all know the underlying intent].”
An amendment that would limit military detentions to people captured overseas failed on Thursday afternoon. The Senate soundly defeated a measure to strip out all the detention provisions on Tuesday.
So despite the Sixth Amendment’s guarantee of a right to trial, the Senate bill would let the government lock up any citizen it swears is a terrorist, without the burden of proving its case to an independent judge, and for the lifespan of an amorphous war that conceivably will never end.
It would be one thing if the military was clamoring for the authority to become the nation’s jailer. But to the contrary: Defense Secretary Leon Panetta opposes the maneuver. So does CIA Director David Petraeus, who usually commands deference from senators in both parties. Pretty much every security official has lined up against the Senate detention provisions, from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to FBI Director Robert Mueller, who worry that they’ll get in the way of FBI investigations of domestic terrorists. President Obama has promised to veto the bill [but, what will president Perrynochio, or president Uncle Tom Cain, or president "Crazy Eyes" Bachmann, or president Flip Romney. or president Neuter'em Gingrich do?].
After all, Obama approved of the execution without trial of Anwar al-Awlaki, al-Qaida’s YouTube preacher, based entirely on the unproven assertion that Awlaki was dangerous. Awlaki was an American citizen. So Obama thinks he has the right to kill Americans the government says are terrorists, but he doesn’t want the military to lock them up forever without trial.
The bill would just let the government detain a citizen in military custody, not force it to do that. Reassured yet?
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) said it “denigrates the very foundations of this country.” Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) added, “it puts every single American citizen at risk.”
If Obama backs down from his veto threat, get ready to see Americans at Guantanamo Bay.
Mike Adams, the editor of Natural News sums it up more realistically with these tidbits…
This bill, passed late last night in a 93-7 vote, declares the entire USA to be a “battleground” upon which U.S. military forces can operate with impunity, overriding Posse Comitatus and granting the military the unchecked power to arrest, detain, interrogate and even assassinate U.S. citizens with impunity.
It’s being called the most traitorous act ever witnessed in the Senate, and the language of the bill is cleverly designed to make you think it doesn’t apply to Americans, but toward the end of the bill it essentially says it can apply to Americans “if we want it to.”
