If You Thought Police Brutality Was Bad … Wait Until You See What Congress Wants to Do Next Week
The Gay Secretary
This bill S-1867 should send chill down the spines of all people no matter what the political persuasion is.
Under the ‘worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial’ provision of S.1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which is set to be up for a vote on the Senate floor Monday, the legislation will “basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who supports the bill.
S-1867 is going to a full vote on the floor of the Senate next week after passing a cloture procedure vote. This bill was passed by committee in secret behind closed doors without a public hearing. I can see why the secrecy. It is because because these men see the American streets as a battlefield because they see the people as the enemy now because we threatens their power. Why because these politicians have sold their soul and their country out for power. This bill is an act treason.
This bill also repeals the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 that prohibits US Military to be deployed on the streets of America to be used as a police force. Now I know why the founders were so dead set against having a standing army. It is because of this reason the Army, can be used to oppress the American people. Abe Lincoln used the Union Army to arrest journalist, state legislators and even shut down the congress. Suspending the right of habeas corpus should be real frightening to everyone. To the governors, mayors, county sheriff, police officers. all local politicians and state legislators should really pay attention. They better find out really fast that none of them are safe if this bill becomes law. We can see Soldiers or Marines coming to arrest any local or state politicians that stands in the way.
What really should have every person's hair stand on the back of their neck is no one is safe. Not only will the Army, Marines and foreign troops be used to arrest dissidents. These powers could be expanded to even arrest Obama's useful idiots who supported this madness. In any tyranny, no one is safe. Not even the troops or the enforcers. This power could be used to remove people from their homes in rural areas and relocate them to the big cities under UN Agenda 21. Washington DC is now becoming unhinged because the people are waking up and if they do not try to send a chilling effect into the population, they all could be going to jail for treason and fraud.
I know it sounds incredible. New powers to use the military worldwide, even within the United States? Hasn’t anyone told the Senate that Osama bin Laden is dead, that the president is pulling all of the combat troops out of Iraq and trying to figure out how to get combat troops out of Afghanistan too? And American citizens and people picked up on American or Canadian or British streets being sent to military prisons indefinitely without even being charged with a crime. Really? Does anyone think this is a good idea? And why now?
But there is a way to stop this dangerous legislation. Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) is offering the Udall Amendment that will delete the harmful provisions and replace them with a requirement for an orderly Congressional review of detention power. The Udall Amendment will make sure that the bill matches up with American valuues.
The solution is the Udall Amendment; a way for the Senate to say no to indefinite detention without charge or trial anywhere in the world where any president decides to use the military. Instead of simply going along with a bill that was drafted in secret and is being jammed through the Senate, the Udall Amendment deletes the provisions and sets up an orderly review of detention power. It tries to take the politics out and put American values back in.
Now is the time to stop this bad idea. Please urge your senators to vote YES on the Udall Amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act.
