CNBC EXPOSES PENTAGON PLANS TO DEPLOY
MILITARY AGAINST U.S. CITIZENS
From Conspiracy theory to reality - CNBC reporting that the Pentagon is actively conducting drills to prepare the US Army for deployment against US citizens.
Tyler Mathisen, Managing Editor of CNBC Business News is hardly a "tin foil hat" kind of guy. On a recent "Power Lunch" show, Mathisen reported that the Pentagon is actively conducting war game drills called "Operation United Quest." The exercise, as described by CNBC Correspondent Eamon James, is intended to prepare the military for large scale economic collapse in the US that will force Army to "keep domestic order amid civil unrest."
Remember what we told you about Posse Comitatus?
Need more proof? Check out this photo taken during a training exercise at Ft. Richardson, AK by USAF Tech. Sgt. Christiansen of the NC National Guard. Note the protestor with the sign.
Now let me ask you, are you going to wait until the Commander in Chief deploys the military against you? Or will you TAKE A STAND AND DEMAND CONGRESS REINSTATES OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS?
CONGRESS MUST REINSTATE HABEAS CORPUS &
POSSE COMITATUS NOW!
BEFORE SOMEONE DECIDES THE ENEMY IS YOU!
URGENT UPDATE - Congress overwhelmingly passed the National Defense Authorization Act - even cow towing to OBAMA's demand that Congress GIVE UP its responsibility to defend liberty and give the Administration the sole ability to suspend Habeas Corpus and the Posse Comitatus Act.
Are you ready for detainment? Because if you are reading this, then there is a good chance you have been to a tea party rally, an abortion clinic prayer service, a bulk food cannery or simply served in the military - which means you're on "Janet's List", (the Department of Homeland Security's list of "potential terrorists") and therefore are a a candidate for NDAA's indefinite detention.
The yellowbellies in Congress are claiming they had to cave to Administration demands if the military were to get funded this year. I disagree. I think it's dirty, disgusting and dishonorable - but hey, that's how DC works. Now Congress needs to FIX THE MESS they made with all their back room deals.
CONGRESS MUST NOW IMMEDIATELY PASS A BILL THAT FULLY RESTORES HABEAS CORPUS, THE POSSE COMITATUS ACT AND PROTECTS THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS.
Oh and by the way, the White House claims that they will VETO this bill? Don't hold your breath. It turns out the Obama Administration specifically demanded that the indefinite detention provisions be applied to Americans and that the authority to suspend Habeas Corpus be transferred from the hands of Congress to the President.
Check out Sen. Carl Levin's statements on the Senate floor:
"The language which precluded the application of Section 1031 to American citizens was in the bill that we originally approved... the administration asked us to remove the language which says that U.S. citizens and lawful residents would not be subject to this section."
Congress got their military funding, but at what cost?
Now it's time for Congress to GIVE BACK OUR LIBERTY!
FIX THE DICTATOR CLAUSE! BEFORE THE PRESIDENT DECIDES THE "ENEMY" IS YOU.
Legal experts and Constitutional attorneys agree - Bills HR 1540 & SB 1867 allow the President to declare anyone, including US Citizens, an enemy.
This is our LAST CHANCE TO SAVE LIBERTY. Congress is working right now to reconcile the two bills. Unless Congress fixes the "Dictator Clause" in SB 1867, the battle for America is LOST.
What does it take to be considered an enemy?
WHAT WILL IT TAKE IN AMERICA, WHERE DHS HAS ALREADY OFFICIALLY BRANDED VETERANS, PRO-LIFE PRAYER CHAIN PARTICIPANTS AND TEA PARTIERS AS "POTENTIAL TERRORISTS"?
Apparently the majority of Congress and a good number of Americans find a pretty lie preferable to the cold hard ugly truth. One after another, elected officials continue to claim that HR 1540 and SB 1867 will not affect American citizens. But the TRUTH is these bills erase Habeas Corpus, the Posse Comitatus Act and American Freedom as we know it. The bills literally give a President the power to deem any individual an enemy, even an American citizen and, strip that person of their rights - including the right to a fair trial - and imprison the individual indefinitely. Echoes of Castro & Stalin right here on American soil.
Unite In Action conferred with a number of legal scholars and here is what the experts had to say:
Formally titled the "National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 " S.B. 1867 include language that allows the President suspend Habeas Corpus and the Posse Comitatus Act, using the U.S. military to indefinitely detain United States citizens captured on US Soil.
S.B. 1867 Section 1032 states:
Paragraph (1) states: (1) IN GENERAL- Except as provided in paragraph (4), the Armed Forces of the United States shall hold a person described in paragraph (2) who is captured in the course of hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40) in military custody pending disposition under the law of war.
(4) WAIVER FOR NATIONAL SECURITY- The Secretary of Defense may, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence, waive the requirement of paragraph (1) if the Secretary submits to Congress a certification in writing that such a waiver is in the national security interests of the United States.
LEGAL ANALYSIS: Because section 1 references section 2 as part of its requirements, Section 4's nullification of Section 1 also nullifies the definitions laid forth in Section 2.
S.B. 1867 Section 1031 (2):
(2) A person 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.
LEGAL ANALYSIS: The bill does not say "any al Qaeda operative who has committed a belligerent act." It does not define exactly what a "belligerent act" may be. It simply includes "any person who has committed a belligerent act." The word including is the key, because by definition "including" means in addition to the al Qaeda suspects, Taliban, etc.
TELL CONGRESS - WE WILL NOT TRADE LIBERTY FOR FALSE SECURITY
This may be just a loophole; however it is a very dangerous loophole. Attorneys split hairs for a living, and if we imagine for one moment that some future administration attorney won't split hairs on this act, we are kidding ourselves. Oh wait, they already did...
Allow me to draw your attention to Pentagon Attorney Jeh Johnson's comments made Thursday, as reported by the AP:
"Johnson said only the executive branch, not the courts, is equipped to make military battlefield targeting decisions about who qualifies as an enemy."
So we have Administration lawyers declaring that the definition of enemy is solely left to the administration. And we have a Congress who, through SB 1867 & HR 1541, has designated America as a battlefield. What's next, the Gulag? WE HAVE GOT TO STOP THIS MONSTROSITY NOW!
THE CONSTITUTION IS DEAD
IF WE ALLOW THE NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT TO PASS
The House and Senate are working on reconciling a bill that if passed, will give the President the power to silence political enemies - even American citizens on American soil -- at will!
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A MORE IMPORTANT TIME TO CONTACT CONGRESS
FAX CONGRESS NOW - TELL THEM WE WILL NOT ALLOW LIBERTY TO DIE ON OUR WATCH!
Every single Dictator in modern history who was given totalitarian power under the auspices of "security" used that power to eliminate dissent. Why on earth should we imagine that it won't happen HERE?
THIS IS THE SINGLE MOST DEADLY PIECE OF LEGISLATION IN MODERN HISTORY
Formally titled the "National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 " H.R. 1540 and S.B. 1867 declares America to be "a battlefield" and will allow the Executive Branch of the federal government to eliminate OUR rights, deploy the military against American citizens on American soil, and imprison citizens indefinitely and without trial; all at the behest of a President who only needs to deem the individual in question as a "terrorist."
As if that weren't enough, today the Associated Press reported that Administration Attorney Jeh Johnson told the National Security Council "only the executive branch, not the courts, is equipped to make military battlefield targeting decisions about who qualifies as an enemy."
Got that? ONLY THE ADMINISTRATION GETS TO DECIDE WHO IS AN ENEMY.
If Congress does not change the language of S.B. 1867 and H.R. 1540 before the final reconciliation process, the Administration will be allowed to imprison those self proclaimed "enemies" for as long as they want, with no lawyer, no trial and no rights.
Think the enemy terrorist label will only be used against al-Queda operatives? Think again.
In addition to the legislation language that allows suspension of Habeas Corpus and Posse Comitatus for American citizens, we also have an Administration that has been quite busy defining terrorists.
Remember the DHS directive declaring that veterans, tea parties and people who pray in front of abortion clinics as potential terrorists?
Remember the FBI demanding that Sporting Goods stores report customers who buy multiple packs of waterproof matches and MRE/Meals Ready to Eat as potential terrorists?
Remember the Vice President of the United States just months ago calling YOU, me and the entire Tea Party Movement terrorists?
I do not wear a tinfoil hat, nor am I a conspiracy kook. I am however a student of history.
Do you think the Cubans, or the Venezuelans or the Russians did not at one time think the same thing - "it won't happen here?" Do you think we have some magical absolution from tyranny based upon our geographical location? ONLY the Constitution protects our freedom. Yet, Congress seems dead set on destroying our rights and our Constitution either through incompetence, ignorance or fear - none of which are justifiable excuses for extinguishing liberty.
Our Founding Fathers wrote the Declaration of Independence largely because the British suspended the colonist' right of Habeas Corpus.
The Posse Comitatus Act was written to prevent a fascist government from turning the U.S. military against its own citizens.
Yet the 112th Congress has apparently forgotten our history and now fails to recognize that they are empowering and enabling the very tyranny our Founding Fathers fought to escape.
FAX CONGRESS NOW - remind them that the pitchforks and the torches don't just come to Washington for Democrats. Tell them to rewrite this monstrosity of a bill to include Senator Rand Paul and Senator Udall's amendments which preserve Habeas Corpus and the Posse Comitatus for American citizens.
