Posted on 12/11/2011 9:31:50 PM PST by Nachum
As soon as December 13, the President will sign NDAA Section 1031 into law, permitting citizen imprisonment without evidence or trial. The bill that passed Congress absolutely DOES NOT exempt citizens. The text of Section 1031 reads, "A covered person under this section" includes "any person who has committed a belligerent act". We only have to be ACCUSED, because we don't get a trial.
- Confusingly, Obama threatened a veto for 1032, but NOT 1031. 1032 is UNRELATED to imprisoning citizens without a trial. He has never suggested using a veto to stop Section 1031 citizen imprisonment -- in fact, it was requested by the Obama administration. Watch the video for proof.
- The Feinstein Amendment 1031(e) is dangerously misleading. Don't be fooled: In the text of 1031(e), "Nothing in this section shall be construed...", the only word that matters is "construed" because the Supreme Court are the only ones with the power to construe the law. The Feinstein Amendment 1031(e) permits citizens to be imprisoned without evidence or a trial forever, if the Supreme Court does not EXPLICITLY repeal 1031.

This is Carl Levin, a Democrat, -coming to his senses.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
Would someone put this into something we can understand? It doesn’t sound good. Anything Ojerko does seems to turn into crap.
These Rats foresee the distinct possibility that the executive might become Republican again, and all manner of two bit Rat boot licking punks might be fingered as “belligerents” (though they’d have nothing to worry about from Mitt).
Such provision will not stand.
Can you imagine what this would do to Obama’s chances for re-election, as well as being framed as a “brutal totalitarian dictator” even in the minds of the shallowest of Democrat voters ?
I wonder if this stuff is motivated by the anticipation of financial ‘civil unrest’ rather than the stated threat of ‘terrorism’. Seems suspect, given what Europe is prepping for.
Meh, what could go wrong?
The islamic communist puppet wants to destroy THE CONSTITUTION and of ALL RIGHTS and FREEDOMS of WE THE PEOPLE of the UNITED STATES of America. You know that his islamic communist regime will only be attacking and imprisoning us dangerous Tea Party Americans and never any of his muslim murdering islamic terrorists or murdering illegal aliens.
If, and he SHOULD of course lose in 2012, he is counting on this bill for his islamic communist regime in their New Government Jobs and his communist acorn Workers of the World to keep working in and against the American People and THE CONSTITUTION.
And will of course totally burn up THE BILL OF RIGHTS. That is their communist great plan to destroy America and the rest of the world.
They want to be the great communist leaders of the world, which of course means, as it has always and will always mean, to cause the murder of millions and millions of people.
So watch who you vote for next time, and not vote for just a clean half-black person that reads well and doesn’t sound like a rapper, or have every single document about himself sealed away with no proof of ANYTHING about him.
Yes, it’s Rachel Maddow. But, I remember watching this. And it was amazing to hear her talk about it the way she did. This is Indefinite Detention in May 2009.
“The islamic communist puppet wants to destroy THE CONSTITUTION and of ALL RIGHTS and FREEDOMS of WE THE PEOPLE of the UNITED STATES of America. ..”
This is happening faster than I ever dreamed.
Where are the checks and balances?
When did this turd pass the House?
Once you contact congress concerning your disapproval and this abomination is signed, they’ll probably get your name off their list and “disappear” you.
Enjoy your life in the ‘land of the free’. All those earthquakes in the midwest lately and in VA are the founding fathers rolling in their graves.
The country itself is facing a critical point in its history. Many countries have faced it before but not in this modern age on such a large scale. I am afraid the outcome is not going to be good my friend. There are some who believe they will be the decision makers for all of us.
Just love those around you and keep your communities strong, hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
Remember Jose Padilla and his loss of rights as a citizen? He still hasn’t been sentenced because the Eleventh Circuit overturned his conviction, saying it was too lenient.
Congress has just ensured that Obama never runs into the difficulties that Bush did in the Padilla case.
I was just watching one of the Pirates of the Caribean movies with the kids. This was the opening scene - seems fitting for this thread:
“....hereby decree the suspension of the right to trial by jury....”
My thoughts exactly.
THE LAW (IN PERTINENT PART):
Thomas.gov (Search under "Thomas by Number" for: S.1867)
2 . National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Engrossed in Senate [Passed Senate] - ES)[S.1867.ES][PDF
National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012
(Engrossed in Senate [Passed Senate] - ES)
`CHAPTER 669--MARITIME SAFETY OF FORCES
Subtitle D--Detainee Matters
SEC. 1031. AFFIRMATION OF AUTHORITY OF THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES TO DETAIN COVERED PERSONS PURSUANT TO THE AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE.
(a) In General- Congress affirms that the authority of the President to use all necessary and appropriate force pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40) 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.
(b) COVERED PERSONS- A covered person under this section is ANY PERSON AS FOLLOWS:
(1) A person who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored those responsible for those attacks.
(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 BELLIGERANT ACT or has directly supported such hostilities in aid of such enemy forces.
The past tense language, apparently intended to narrow the focus down to those tied directly to 9/11, poses another potential problem — will this be considered an ex post facto law? None of the USSC liberals will swallow this and it only takes one other objection (Thomas?) and it’s gone.
Yup. Too much wiggle room in that language.
“INCLUDING ANY PERSON WHO HAS”, past tense, COULD MEAN yesterday or 5 minutes ago.
overly broad, a military force CAN BE USED on an American citizen, unrelated to 9/11.
Time for me to hit the hay.
About once a week I write the Whitehouse.gov and tell the quota boy what a P.O.S. he is.
Guess the authorities will be coming around pretty soon to send me in for re-education along with all others who think this baboso is nucking futs.
Just the other way around. This provision is aimed at conservatives like a loaded gun.
This provision looks forward to Obama's new civil defense force fanning out to round up veterans and conservatives for concentration.
If the Supreme Court does not strike this down as unconstitutional, America is finished as a Republic. Glad I’m gone.
No need to read it. One handgun can do plenty.
He’ll sign it anyway ... it only affects citizens. He isn’t one, so it won’t bother him.
Obama could throw every conservative in jail for no reason whatsoever, and it would never make it onto the nightly news. We literally have a government media complex just like Baghdad Bob. Obama doesn’t have to worry about anything now except the machinery necessary to ensure that he can declare martial law at a time of his choosing.
And it seems like he will have accomplished that before he goes off to Hawaii - right at the time Israel will have to act against Iran, at the urging of Saudi Arabia (because US troops are leaving Iraq before year’s end, leaving it wide open for Iran to come in and institute their caliphate with only Israel and the Saudis standing in the way).
The Occupy Wall Street thing fizzled out as far as striking a match on dry tinder and sparking the communist-Islamist revolution so some combination of Iran-Israel and world economic collapse may do the job instead - and very possibly within the next couple weeks. Obama is making sure everything is in place for him to have utter and absolute control of the US before he goes on “vacation”.
What’s frustrating is that our stupid, stupid R’s are going right along with it, like they’ve been hypnotized into sleep. Unbelievable.
Obama’s walk to Air Force One to go to Hawaii would be a good time for Sheriff Joe to personally arrest Obama so all the stuff Obama had intended for Obama to be able to do would then be enabled for acting POTUS John Boehner.
Code Pink better watch out if a R gets in the White House...
And so better the entire US media.
This suggests to me that the Congressional dems have been convinced by Obama that there will not be another election. Unless “belligerent act” is specifically defined somewhere else in the act.
The average democratic voter, hell even the average Repub voter has no idea that something like this is about to be signed into law. I could go to work and talk about this and not a single person will know what Im talking about.
That opening scene made my blood run cold. I didn’t think Disney capable of it. I didn’t think this country capable of it. I’m sitting here thinking “What is now the difference between us and Egypt?”
“Obama could throw every conservative in jail for no reason whatsoever....”
I think the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments will have something to “say” about the wording of this legislation.
Just like with automatic IRS money grabbing unconstitutional convenience, now the government wants a way out to inconvenient questions of corruption: from Zero’s fraudulent automatic election and promotion to president to automatic imprisonment, here it is!!!!
Wow, lottery disorganized Soviet Nation ahead of you, change you can believe in. Vegas criminal country is what AMerica has become.
I stand to be corrected, but haven’t they been passing/reviewing this “Act” every year for some time now???
I thought I heard about that last week when the news came out about this bill...
I understand the new amendments and ramifications of this bill passing, but only 7 Senators voted against this thing recently...And now, the House gets a crack at it, or has it already been voted on???
Just want to make sure I understand the status on this thing...
I would propose the Second Amendment may have some play in here as well...
Joe those who have poked the hyena numerous times will be gifted with a bullet to the head most likely upon apprehension in front of family and friends to get their point across.
"Belligerent act" could be Occupy Wallstreeters, defecating in the street to a logical, law-abiding person. However, I didn't see any definition.
Still....military used against an American citizen in Amerika?
This is pretty scary stuff....
If a judge doesn’t put a restraining order on it (or whatever they call it when they keep a law from going into effect until the courts can decide whether it is Constitutional) before the world economy collapses and/or Israel attacks Iran, it really doesn’t matter (for all practical purposes) what the 5th and 14th Amendments have to say about it.
Considering the way the Euro is looking, Obama may only have to “convince” (cough) one judge to refuse to put the law on hold until the case can be heard and decided. Nothing more could be done about it until that court decides the case and it is appealed to a different court.
And if the communist-Islamist revolution doesn’t materialize before a judge can actually decide the case, judging by the way the eligibility lawsuits have gone, I’d say there’s nobody who would have standing to sue over the constitutionality of the law anyway, since nobody has been materially harmed by it yet and as long as it harms everybody equally, it’s legally considered nobody’s business.
Of course, if a case isn’t about Obama’s eligibility there’s a different standard for “standing”, so it all really depends on what the judges want to do. The rule of men, not the rule of law. And that makes EVERYTHING vulnerable. Nothing is solid when it stands so precariously on the whims of a few people in black robes.
Yes. Yes, it is scary stuff.
Ruling class is setting the stage for martial law, and eventually to invite foreign troops on U.S. soil, all in the name of security. Collapse is coming. They know people will be p*ssed and coming after them. This is the ruling class efforts at control, ripping the Constitution to shreds. They could care less. RepubliCON or DemRAT doesn’t matter. And they just put themselves on the One hundred heads list when the SHTF. Unintended consequences, what a b*tch eh?
THE FOLLOWING IS A FICTIONAL DRAMATIZATION OF A PRESS CONFERENCE BY PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, ADDRESSING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, FROM THE EAST ROOM OF THE WHITE HOUSE
It takes place in the future, December 2012, when the SHTF, banks close, martial law declared, retirement/401k accounts taken, dollar sinks, etc.
It’s an accurate portrayal of how a talking head from the government would calmly institute tyranny in the face of collapse. It uses Zero’s talking points. It’s a long speech but chilling!
An obvious getcha plug but I'm curious.
I've been describing this reserve currency, oil dollars, inflation debacle to anyone with even moderate intellect. Few know what to make of it other than they're out of their league when contemplating the variables.
Your rights to fair trials are over, You are now under The New World Order Rules. Any Republicans who voted for this should loose our votes.
