We read about these events, laws, executive orders, etc and it seems like it’s more like a script from some political SiFi triller. It seems these stories are so far from what most of us ‘Regular Folk’ can relate to, that we don’t really take it seriously. But then we step back and take another look and dig a bit deeper and we come to realize that ‘We’re Not In Kansas Anymore’. We have to ask ‘who do these politiciams work for’ that enact these laws, acts, and regulations that erode our God Given freedoms and constitutional rights. Who is it that they serve with this stuff like the NDAA legislation?
How did the fascism of the 1930’s which so many brave American and allied soliders gave their lives for, end up being adopted in our present time under the guise that it’s necessary to take our freedoms away, in order to preserve our freedoms. The ‘inversion’ is so obvious and so dis-heartening to see. It’s time to give ‘Voice’ to those who oppose these nefarious acts by those in control, that write, enact, lobby, and vote for laws and legsislation that strips away our precious freedoms.
In a recent article by Bob Unruh titled ‘Congress lining up behind indefinite detention, for Americans’. Here are some quotes from this article;
“Jon Schwarz at the Intercept noticed a far different issue: the option for the indefinite detention of American citizens without charges”
“The Constitution protects the rights of the accused under the nation’s criminal statutes, including the provision of a statement of charges, a “speedy trial,” a defense counsel and a jury trial. The idea of no-notice, no-ending, no-charges detention arose in response to 9/11, with the argument that terrorists are more like enemy combatants than home-grown criminals. But the Intercept noted the legislation has expanded its scope over the years”
“The fiscal year 2012 NDAA included provisions that appeared to both codify and expand a power the executive branch had previously claimed to possess — namely, the power to hold individuals, including U.S. citizens, in military detention indefinitely — based on the Authorization to Use Military Force passed by Congress three days after 9/11,” the report said”
“Then-Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, criticized the 2012 NDAA as providing “some weak restraints on the executive branch’s ability to use this power.”
“The report explained that, theoretically, the provisions should apply only to those involved in 9/11, such as al-Qaida and the Taliban”
“But now, incredibly enough, a bipartisan group of six lawmakers, led by Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Tim Kaine, D-Va., is proposing a new AUMF that would greatly expand who the president can place in indefinite military detention, all in the name of restricting presidential power,” The Intercept said. If the Corker-Kaine bill becomes law as currently written, according to the report, “any president, including Donald Trump, could plausibly claim extraordinarily broad power to order the military to imprison any U.S. citizen, captured in America or not, and hold them without charges essentially forever”
