Skip to comments.Lindsey Graham calls for using military against American citizens (Call Your Senators Now!)
Posted on 11/28/2011 2:08:59 PM PST by Bokababe
The US government has been slowly eradicating the Posse Commitatus Act of 1878. That act banned the US government from using the US military in domestic law enforcement. Over the past few decades the US government has repeatedly violated the act. However, many Republicans have insisted that the Posse Comitatus Act needs to be respected to protect the rights of American Citizens.
South Carolina's left-wing Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, however, is supporting provisions to eradicate Posse Commitatus and dramatically expand the powers of the Federal government.
The US Senate Armed Forces Committee, led by Carl Levin (D-MI) and John McCain (R-AZ), held a secret closed door session to insert ominous new Federal powers into the Defense Authorization Bill. This is the annual bill to fund the US military. These new powers were requested by the Obama administration.

The ONLY way I would want military intervention would be to arrest all of the traitors in Washington DC (From Hussein on down) and return to a Constitutional style gubmint.
Warm up that tar and stock up on feathers.
I could say something about Grahamnesty but secret service would be knocking on my door.
Should that not be conservative Graham. Sac off

I suggest looking at the bill before calling your senator. Especially page 362, paragraph (b).
Lindsey has his eye on the dreadful Tea Party, all those fired up suburbanites.
We need to keep close tabs on Linseed to make sure he gets his just reward when the roundups start.
This is too funny, the Senate wants to use the US military against us to stay in power and some people think they will back down with just a phone call.
Hello, earth to poster, we are way past the phone call stage on this one....just saying...
John McLame must not have learned much from being held captive in North Vietnam.
Rand Paul is huge on individual liberty.
Anwar al Awlaki was a U.S. citizen. He was also an anti-US combatant. The nature of the war on terrorism has American citizens killing Americans as did Nidal Hassan at Ft Hood.
The military SHOULD be able to take down terrorists or combat teams infiltrated into the US. How do you write a law in such a way that it gives authority to do ONLY that?
Rand Paul was not mentioned even once in that article.
The military should arrest all the senators or congressmen who vote for this.
Well, I read the bill and it states that this doesn’t apply to U.S. citizens and doesn’t apply to legal residents who are within the U.S.
Here’s more on it:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) explained that the bill will basically say in law for the first time that the homeland (the US) is part of the battlefield and people can be imprisoned without charge or trial American citizen or not.
Why? The damn senators can’t even agree among themselves what it all means.
Glad you pointed that info out. How did you find that so fast? Or did you help draft it?
