The NDAA Explained in 3 Minutes

Congress reaffirms indefinite detention of Americans under NDAA

NDAA

The Daily Sheeple

The US House of Representatives approved an annual defense spending bill early Thursday after rejecting a proposed amendment that would have prevented the United States government from indefinitely detaining American citizens.

An amendment introduced in the House on Wednesday this week asked that Congress repeal a controversial provision placed in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 that has ever since provided the executive branch with the power to arrest and detain indefinitely any US citizen thought to be affiliated with Al-Qaeda or associated organizations.

The Conditioning is Working & the Dectruction of America is at Hand

Freedom Outpost

It’s amazing to me how this administration has any credibility left with the American people. In the America I once lived in, there was a sleeping giant that stood vigilant, jealously guarding our liberties as if they were the most precious of jewels. An administration that has lied and attempted to subvert the Constitution as often as this one, would be called out and humiliated by a press corps that understood its duty in protecting the First Amendment.

Not in this America; the country we live in today is unrecognizable, and besides, that only happens when Republicans lie, cheat and steal. Instead of guarding liberty, the masses have been conditioned, through the same propaganda used by tyrants all throughout the twentieth century, to hate their own culture and discredit the very system that grants them the liberty to do so. The liberal’s attitude towards America and the Constitution is the perfect example of “biting the hand that feeds you.”

Criminal Supreme Court Refuses to Hear NDAA Indefinite Detention Case

D.C. Clothesline

On Monday the Supreme Court refused to hear a case challenging the indefinite military detention of American citizens, without due process, that was written into the 2012 NDAA. This is, of course, Section 1021 from the 2012 NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) that has been at the center of controversy for over 2 years. The legal battle, that advanced through appeal to the Supreme Court, was led by notables such as Noam Chomsky, Daniel Ellsberg and Chris Hedges.

When Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia predicted that Americans would again see the rise of internment camps on American soil it gave me a really uneasy feeling. To some his comments were seen as hypothetical. I felt strongly that he was trying to warn Americans of the inevitable:

The NDAA: What They Don’t Want You To Know

The Daily Sheeple

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), Sections 1021 and 1022, authorizes the indefinite military detention, without charge or trial, of any person, including an American citizen, and applies the “Law of War,” to U.S. soil, making the United States legally a battlefield. People Against the NDAA (PANDA) was founded by Dan Johnson in January 2012. Johnson is a remarkable young man – he’s only 20 years old, and is already a nationally known writer and speaker. PANDA is the largest organization of its kind in the world, and has worked on over 18 pieces of state and local anti-NDAA legislation. The PANDA Mission Statement, from the organization’s website: Our Mission is to nonviolently block, strike down, repeal, stop, void and fight the indefinite detention provisions, Sections 1021 and 1022, of the National Defense Authorization Act for the Fiscal Year of 2012, to fight for American civil liberties, to combat laws restricting liberty in the interest of National Security, to support current government officials that are doing so and to engage a younger generation in the politics of the United States so this cannot happen again. Johnson spoke at the Freedom Forum in Santa Cruz, CA on March 19, 2014, where he broke down the law and discussed its impacts on citizens:

Real Americans Are Ready To Snap

Real Americans Are Ready To Snap

The Daily Sheeple

Despite popular belief, every culture of every nation draws a line in the sand against government tyranny. The problem is, many draw this line so close to total defeat that it rarely matters. For the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto, for instance, it wasn’t until the Germans had already herded millions onto railroad cars destined for death camps and cornered the rest into dilapidated central housing that the ZOB resistance was formed, only to be wiped out a month later. Perhaps hindsight is 20/20, but clearly too many freedom movements throughout history waited too long to respond to the trespasses of oligarchs.

The Founding Fathers frequently struggled with the proper measure of resistance. Many colonials wanted vengeance on the British after the Boston Massacre in March of 1770, but patriots knew that the timing was not right. The battle to rally citizens to the cause and to educate the masses as much as possible on the facts took precedence over the desire to enter conflict. The Founders endured five more years of British government criminality until nearly 80 farmers and militiamen stood outnumbered on Lexington Green on April 19th, 1775 to confront an army of 700 British regulars on a mission to capture rebel leaders and destroy weapons caches. No one knew at the time that the war would be sparked that day, but everyone knew that a fight was inevitable and near.

I believe the same feeling hangs in the air of modern America for REAL Americans, and by “real”, I mean those who actually support and defend the constitutional values and principles that lay at the foundation of our society. We sense that something is coming; a great change, or an unstoppable reckoning.

It’s Time to Hang the Elected Traitors in Washington with Their Own Legislation

In US. vs. Castleman, decided March 28, 2014, the US Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the Bill of Rights is no longer “Declaratory and Restrictive Clauses.” They are judicially now perceived as “privileges.” A “privilege” can be revoked for the slightest of legislative causes, but a “Right” that is “Forever Inviolate” We the People no longer have.

Before its ratification, it was insisted upon that a Preamble be written thereto. (Please notice that the “bill” is singular; not plural!) The Preamble states:

Obama Making Good On Promise to Eliminate Free Speech

amber-lyon

The Daily Sheeple

Any discussion about free speech in America must begin and end with the NDAA in which the government can snatch anyone off the street, without due process, and hold them indefinitely. This kind of unbridled power has a devastating effect on free speech.

Prior to the 2012 election, David Axelrod, announced that Obama would push for a constitutional amendment to rollback free speech if he was re-elected. Obama is making good on that promise. Obama’s promise to destroy free speech combined with the passage of the NDAA, constitutes a lethal cocktail for all freedom loving Americans.

NDAA – Section 1021″Civilian Authority-the US Constitution” vs “Military Authority-Commander In Chief”

T-Room

Abby Martin interviewed Thomas Drake, a Whistleblower who outed NSA’s covert wiretapping program known as Trailblazer, on this weeks “Breaking the Set.

Martin asks Drake how it felt when the government he once worked for filed charges against him using the Espionage Act for blowing the whistle on the illegal wiretapping program, his response “Total betrayal.” He went onto to say “It is important to note I took an Oath four times to support and defend the constitution. That oath was not an oath to the President, it was not an oath to lie, it was not an oath to secrecy, it was not an oath to a national security agency.  It was certainly not an oath to look the other way when the government itself commits massive fraud, waste and abuse and engages itself in wrongdoing and illegality and that’s precisely what the government did after 9/11, on a vast scale.”

Drake then goes onto articulate “You can’t have a government violating the constitution in secret and then forming all of these alliances w/corporations who themselves are ensuring the continuance of their own interests through the government. That’s not in the best interests of the country let alone the constitution.”

As for the National Defense Authorization Act, NDAA, Section 1021 also known as Indefinite Detention, Drake holds nothing back pinpointing precisely the concern every American should have stating “Section 1021 is really a generalized provision under which the government unto itself wants to exercise military authority at anytime, anywhere, basically against anybody in the United States of America.” The key word in that sentence is “military authority” not “civilian authority” which should send chills up your spine.

Should Obama and Congress Be Arrested Under the NDAA?

Should President Obama (alongside Lindsay Graham and John McCain) be wearing an orange jumpsuit?

Welcome to the beautiful and surreal reality of life under American corporatism, under a Congress that churns out thousands  and thousands of pages of (often contradictory) legislation a year.

If providing material assistance to al-Qaeda is illegal under the National Defence Authorization Act (2012), and Obama and Congress are sending $25 million of aid to al-Qaeda-affiliated Syrian opposition, aren’t Congress and President Obama violating their own law?
