Abraham Lincoln stated, “Don’t interfere with anything in the [U.S.] Constitution. It must be maintained for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.
Recently on CNN, the Intel Chairs, including Senator Feinstein, stated that America is less safe today than we were before 2009 or after 911. How is it that America is vulnerable to attack in 2013 when they had the opportunity to refuse to pay Iran $7B of US taxpayer money every year with knowledge that they are building possible nuclear weapons and that their former leader, Ahmadinejad and many other Muslim Brotherhood members or groups linked to the Muslim Brotherhood stated that the Muslim Brotherhood would wipe Western Civilization – America and Israel – off the face of the map?
The most alarming statement ever made during my life time, which should have rocked the nation, came from the lips of Senator Diane Feinstein, who said congress and the unvetted President Obama implemented sections 1031 and 1032, which is included into the NDAA-S.1867 law as follows: “Congress is essentially authorizing the indefinite imprisonment of American citizens without charge or trial.” Although, some journalists say Americans are not included, my conversation with her staff member on Tuesday, March 28, 2011, said it is in effect currently unless and until it is voted upon and removed through legislation.
How then should Americans view their “homeland” and the “world,” perhaps as the new One World Order “battlefield” of “enemy combatants” subject to indefinite detention by the U.S. military, police, and federal government to be targeted anywhere around the world if “accused” of a crime, and thereafter, denied all “due process of law?” Senator Lindsey Graham’s electrifying statement should have awakened the nation when he stated, “The homeland is part of the battlefield and people can be held without trial whether a citizen or not.” Although, Americans were assured that the NDAA law didn’t include Americans, Senator Feinstein’s disturbing words included into the NDAA-S.1867, known as sections 1031 and 1032, include American citizens as Senators Graham and John McCain stated on video. How is it that these senators and congress have granted themselves the authority to circumvent the U.S. Constitution?
Remember, Judge Napolitano stated, NDAA “shreds” the U.S. Constitution even though Obama and Congress swore to uphold, defend, and preserve the constitution as well as protect the American people from anti-American enemies, but instead, they have targeted American citizens as the possible “enemy combatants” if the federal government or U.S. military should “accuse” a citizen, not charge a citizen. Doesn’t this open the door for tyranny and abuse on U.S. soil by the federal government and U.S. military? So, has the 112th Congress shredded the entire U.S. Constitution, because without “due process of law,” there is no justice! There is only the possibility for tyranny and death or enslavement. The political satire recently released on amazon.com, Obamacare, Dinosaurs, Red Necks and Radicals, alerts mankind to the dangers of Obamacare and the Redistribution of America’s wealth with fictional characters that parallel today’s Orwellian state of affairs.
Hear ye! Hear ye! All patriots in America, but alas, this cannot be true, as this must be no more than a fictional story, along the lines of War of the Worlds, or perhaps, one of my favorite movies,Valkyrie, as such a statement could only cause one to believe that such a law passed by congressional members – elected temporary public servants paid with tax dollars, who voters and taxpayers believed as having the highest level of integrity and loyalty to the United States of America. America is a Republic and has been established as a Republic implemented by the Rule of Law, mandated by the U.S. Constitution, so let’s pray that the NDAA Law ends up to be no more than a mere figment of my imagination or one of my worst nightmares resulting in nothing more than a terrible lack of communication, right? Unfortunately, it is real! On my website, www.fightbacklegalabuse.com, I have videos with a guest named, Anthony J. Hilder, who warned Americans back in the late 1990s, that there were people, who intended to imprison more people, especially Blacks, eventually use them for racial tension then as slaves in the prisons, but then again – it appears that any American can be a potential target today, if implemented in what appears to many to be end times.
The NDAA law includes sections 1031 and 1032 and brings back memories of Obama standing at the “wall” in Germany and stating, “People of the World” instead of addressing the “Citizens of America” and failed to address himself as the President of the United States of America. Why would he do that? It does appear that the words “world” and “globalists’ seem to be the hot words for congressional members, public servants, and the elite, who support the U.N. and Agenda 21, and consider America as “oppressive,” even though it is America who they depend upon for their world charities and excessive lifestyles. Is is possible that the members of the U.N. are pushing secretly to “redistribute” America’s wealth to Third World nations so Americans can be equally poor by wiping out the Middle Class and creating a nation of the wealthy citizens and a nation of poor citizens. And, if not, then how is it that congress and Obama have declared the “homeland” to be nothing more than a “battlefield” whose citizens can be targeted as “enemy combatants” based on an “accusation” only and punished with “indefinite detention” and denied “due process of law.” Or should we ask if the Obama regime are granting to themselves the authority to kidnap Americans on domestic or foreign soil without due process of law and without public scrutiny so that the persons kidnapped under the NDAA law would have no contact with the outside world? The usurping of the 4th Amendment, due process of law, by writing a new law to unconstitutionally by-pass due process of law, eliminates the third branch of government, the judiciary, as well as the need for judges or lawyers as the federal government and the U.S. military would be the accuser, judge, and jury.
The ACLU published a statement in an article which reads: “Don’t be confused by anyone claiming that the ‘indefinite detention’ legislation doesn’t apply to American citizens. It does.”
Oh, no, it can’t can’t be possible for U.S. Congressional members to deny due process of law knowing it’s unconstitutional, right? We, the free and proud Americans whisper, after all, our elected congressional members, those who speak amongst us when campaigning, who we call “honorable” based upon our belief of their integrity, loyalty to their country and the American people, the Flag, the military, and most importantly, the U.S. Constitution, once elected would never declare war against their “homeland” or against the “world” which is sheer madness, right? Obviously, only a mad person would have such thoughts as the U.S. Constitution has been upheld, defended by those who shed their blood, and preserved the constitution with the utmost care by the most patriotic and loyal Americans who pledged their oaths and either laid down their lives or would lay down their lives for America’s freedoms and liberties guaranteed by the most “precious” and important document ever written, except for the Ten Commandments, for which our U.S. laws are rooted, and the word of God expressed in the Bible, as well as the definition of our laws defined in the book, the “Law of Nations.”
Yes, it is true! Sections 1031 and 1032, were included into NDAA as stated by Senator Diane Feinstein (D-Ca.) on national television. The NDAA’s, sections 1031 and 1032, which Senator Levin stated in a letter – did not include Americans – but it did include Americans when congress passed this unconstitutional law. It’s alleged to have been passed without the congressional members knowing the law included Americans, but pressured by the unvetted President Obama to include Americans, a very disturbing thought, indeed. Surely, the American people are burning up the wires demanding to know why Senator Feinstein, McCain, Levin, and Graham as well as the mostly democratic congressional representatives, as well as Obama, signed and approved sections 1031 and 1032 – and did not strike those unconstitutional sections – from the law titled NDAA-S.1867. The NDAA law, shreds “due process of law” and renders Americans vulnerable to indefinite detainment, based only on the federal government or U.S. military’s “accusations.”
Now is the time to demand to answers as to how and why congress and Obama shredded “due process of law” as established for the protection of every citizen, legal or illegal, on U.S. soil as some people allege our government is under some sort of threat and are working allegedly under some sort of fear written by alternative writers. So, hasn’t the president and the Congress violated their sworn oaths and fiduciary duty to uphold, defend, and preserve the U.S. Constitution? How is it that Senator Graham and Senator McCain as ell as other representatives declaring that the “world” and the “homeland” is a “battlefield” since Congress hasn’t declared war? Thus, they would have to declare war against the country they swore to protect! Why did Rep. Lindsey Graham state that “people can be held without trial whether a citizen or not?” Also, how is it that Obama signed a law during election year that targets Americans being arrested without “charge” or “trial” based on an “accusation” – an ugly law titled, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA-S.1867 with the inclusion of Sections 1031 and 1032). This should be worrisome to Americans considering the majority of Americans want a new “vetted” president, as they are watching the race card being played out, knowing that such actions could cause civil unrest.
Thus, Americans must demand to know under which constitutional authority and fiduciary duty congress is applying that provides congress with the authority to circumvent 235 years of established U.S. Constitutional law that guarantees”due process of law.”
As I state in my book, “Fight Back Legal Abuse” that “without “Due Process of Law, Article, IV, there is nothing! There is nothing but tyranny!” Sections 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA law are not in accordance with the U.S. Constitution as required by law or the will of the majority of American people who are required components in the passage of laws. Laws passed must be just and fair and protect the American people, not target the American people and deny access to citizens seeking justice. There is nothing just or fair about sections 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA-S.1867 law. It should be quite disturbing to the American voters and taxpayers that congress and Obama would pass a law that provides the federal government the authority to by-pass the constitution and target American citizens as “enemy combatants,” on foreign or domestic soil, unless Congress has declared war on the “homeland” and the world” after labeling them as “battlefields” and all citizens as potential “enemy combatants.”
Americans must write to congress and ask under which constitutional authority is congress applying that allows federal agents and the U.S. military to target American civilians as enemy combatants based on an accusation and strip American citizens of their constitutional rights, refuse to reveal the “charges.” or refuse access to a lawyer as well as a fair and just “trial,” and deny American citizens access to a civilian court guaranteed to U.S. legal and Natural Born citizens, but allegedly denied under sections 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA-S.1867 law, while providing due process of law to captured Middle East foreign radicals of 911 and other attempted plots against America.
Again, Senator Feinstein stated that sections 1031 and 1032 are included targeting Americans for indefinite detention saying, “Congress is essentially authorizing the indefinite imprisonment of American citizens without charge or trial.” Her statement should have shocked the nation as it rang out loud and clear, yet, some people don’t believe what they heard. So, under which constitutional authority as elected public servants, who are paid with tax dollars to protect the American people and the U.S. Constitution, is Congress applying that provides them the constitutional authority to order the U.S. military to arrest civilians when the U.S. Constitution doesn’t provide that the military follow the President of the United States, but the Commander-in-Chief? But citizens are required to follow constitutional laws rendered by the congress approved by the President of the U.S., not the military, which in my opinion, is an abuse of power.
Ironically, even the U.S. military, provides for “due process of law” when they capture a foreign enemy or accuse a U.S. soldier of a crime. Although, there are journalists stating that this law, Sections 1031 and 1032, doesn’t include American citizens, Sections 1031 and 1032 are intact. Senator Feinstein and Graham made their voices quite clear that Americans are included, even if they remove those sections in the future, they remain intact today. In fact, the denial of constitutional rights in courtrooms across this nation isn’t new, but for decades have been diminished in the media as “isolated” cases. Unfortunately, most Americans have been blinded by the lack of truth in the media. So, early this morning, I phoned Senator Feinstein’s staff member and I asked if Sections 1031 and 1032 had been struck down as I was informed by a reporter, and I was told “no,” and that the law, sections 1031 and 1032 included into the NDAA law are still “in effect” as of this date. So, I said, “So, Americans can be targeted and arrested as “enemy combatants without “charge” or “trial” until or unless Sections 1031 and 1032 are removed.” He said, “Yes, they are still in effect.”
Again, an important statement in an article published by the ACLU reads, “Don’t be
confused by anyone claiming that the “Indefinite Detention” legislation doesn’t apply to American citizens – it does.”
So, what if the federal government secretly decided to target a race or an ethnic group or a grassroots group as their enemy and ordered their arrests without “charge” or without a “trial?” Could any government under such a law have people removed from their homes and destroy their organizations or businesses by accusing people of crimes and arresting them without “due process” so they can create their utopia of rich and poor?
Americans should write or call their congressional members and ask, “When did Congress Declare War against America and the world as Rep. Lindsey Graham and Senator John McCain declared that the “homeland” and the “world” are a “battlefield?” One should consider that in order to be an “enemy combatant” and live on a “battlefield,” one must be at war and at battle with the enemy, but I don’t see a war or a battle raging on U.S. soil or upon every nation throughout the world. The danger of such a law is that the federal government determines who is an “enemy combatant” and who should be detained indefinitely without “charge” or “trial.” For example, the Obama administration called the Tea Party supporters “extremists” when they protested against Obamacare. During WWII, the Nazis ripped people out of their homes and businesses – arrested people on the spot based upon an accusation of being “extremists.” So, sections 1031 and 1032, in my opinion, should be eliminated immediately.
In an article published by the ACLU, it states that Rep. Lindsey Graham stated as follows: “section 1031, the statement of authority to detain, does not apply to American citizens….and designates the world as the ‘Battlefield’ including the homeland.” How then does congress justify that Americans are not targets of their own government if America is declared a “battlefield” as Sections 1031 and 1032 includes Americans as potential targets of the government, who can be detained indefinitely, as “enemy combatants” and denied “due process of law?” It would be wise to ask if Congress exempted themselves and their families from the NDAA Law and Sections 1031 and 1032 which they have dished out for the American people. After all, they shoved the unread Obamacare down the throats of Americans, who objected, while taking bribes for votes and making backroom deals, but didn’t feel it was good enough for Congress, so they exempted themselves holding themselves above the laws of the land they mandated. They wrote loopholes into the laws making “Insider Trading” legal for congressional members, but illegal for American citizens, who they send to jail and exempted themselves from punishment so they could commit the same crime and call it legal.
On the other hand, how can those in law enforcement remain silent about public servants writing loopholes into the laws so they can commit a crime and call it legal for law makers? It does appear that much of the enforcement is only directed at the people, while those in public office exempt themselves and hole themselves above the laws they mandate and and dish out for the American people.
On the other hand, if America is a “battlefield” then one must ponder who is America battling on a daily basis? It was Obama, who stated to the world, “America is not, and never will be at war with Islam!” Bush and Obama, and McCain stated that Islam is a peaceful nation, therefore, why is America and the world declared “battlefields” if congress hasn’t declared who the U.S. federal government is battling or at war with if not Islam who attacked Americans on 911 and murdered Americans and continue to threaten Americans? In fact, there are radicals from Mexico and from the Middle East, who gained citizenship and swore to pledge allegiance to the U.S and the U.S. flag stand on U.S. soil and state that they will eliminate Western Civilization, democracy, and dominate America which is prohibited by U.S. Constitutional law, but Americans have been arrested for praying on public sidewalks including heterosexuals who are dancing or kissing in public. since 2009.
Ironically, congress and Obama never Declared War on Libya, but attacked Libya by firing off 220 Tomahawks as well as ordered the assassination of Gaddafi which resulted in killing his grandkids, yet they refused to call the NATO attack a “war.” Instead, Obama referred to the attack on Libya as a NATO “mission” and promised no boots on the ground. Obama justified his decision by stating that “America is not at war with Libya and that the law passed during the Vietnam war does not apply because the U.S. engagement does not rise to the level of “hostilities” contemplated by law. I guess politicians can spin the laws in any direction that suits them, but not so for the American citizens. The NATO mission against Libya resulted in the killing of freedom fighters, civilians, and Gaddafi’s grandkids as well as the assassination of Gaddafi. The news reported that Gaddafi’s teenage son and his friends were also killed while having dinner at a restaurant. Remember, Gaddafi, didn’t threaten or attack the U.S. prior to the U.S. attacking Libya, and even if considered an enemy, under U.S. constitutional law, he should have been captured and tried. It’s “due process of law” that sets America apart from the tyrannical leaders of Communist and Third World nationsl. In fact, Senator Richard Lugar (Ind) stated on the congressional floor, “We are not declaring war at this point [against Libya].”
Consequently, the American people didn’t pay much attention to the seriousness of the federal government ordering the assassination of Al-Awaki, who was an American citizen, and could have been captured by the federal government, arrested and tried in a court of law, since the Obama administration believed him to be an “enemy combatant.” But, he was denied “due process of law” and alleged to be placed on a “hit” list even though he was an American citizen. Think about that – an American citizen was assassinated without “due process of law,” so can NDAA-S.1867 including sections 1031 and 1032 justify assassinations of any and all Americans labeled as “enemy combatants” since Al-Awaki was an assassinated American labeled as an “enemy combatant?” Just how far does the 112th Congress intend to circumvent due process of law and render Americans live on U.S. soil today without constitutional protections should the government accuse a citizen of being an enemy combatant? One must ponder if a Tea Party member, or an Oathkeeper, or a Christian, Catholic, heterosexual, a potential enemy of their own government?
For example, Jose Padilla, an American citizen was arrested and indefinitely detained for 3 years and then allegedly without “charge” or “trial” sent to a Super Max prison for 17 years allegedly after being labeled as an “enemy combatant.”
Richard Fine, Attorney, was allegedly indefinitely detained for about 2 years for exposing judicial corruption until he was finally released after he was denied “due process of law” on U.S. soil as he pleaded for help on video seen on You Tube.
David Koresh, an American citizen, could have been arrested in town where the news reported he frequented and he could have been served with a subpoena or arrested, but instead American women, children, and men were burned alive by our federal government under the Clinton and Janet Reno administration, except for the people who escaped. What crimes did the women and children and unborn babies commit, but even if they were accused of a crime, it can be very dangerous for citizens or even deadly when “due process of law” is denied on U.S. soil and a government becomes similar to a “mob rule.”
Randy Weaver, an American citizen, was at home and allegedly he wasn’t served with a subpoena or arrested, but the federal government surrounded his property and killed his wife holding a baby on the front porch and his little boy and his dog running through the forests which hit national news while Clinton and Janet Reno were in office, who allegedly viewed them, as enemies of the government. The respected Constitutional Lawyer, Gerry Spence, stepped up to the plate in his defense.
Therefore, Americans must ask, “What happened to the Udall Bill that was proposed and would shred Sections 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA law?”
Ironically, on March 13, 2009, Obama announced that it would no longer refer to prisoners at GITMO as “enemy combatants” but also asserted that the [U.S.] president has the authority to detain terrorist suspects there without criminal charges….and his administration began deciding which detainees are eligible for trial in a military tribunal or civilian court. Surely, if the government were to target the Tea party or other grassroots political groups, many Americans could be arrested indefinitely to fill the secret prisons beds if sections 1031 and 1032 aren’t removed from the NDAA law. For example, McCain said people could be accused if they have missing fingers or if they store more than 7 or 8 days of food in their homes. Well, that would target most Americans as “enemy combatants,” right? In fact, there was an HLS Directive that stated that in an emergency, people who were targeted as “extremists” could be detained allegedly without due process of law.
How is it that when Obama took office, he verbally accused President Bush of allowing foreign enemy combatants dunked by a “water boarding ” policy after 911. Should we not as – which is worse? Water Boarding or Shredding the U.S. Constitution and denying “due process of law that indefinitely detains any citizen – innocent or guilty – on U.S. soil? – or an implementing a “hit” list of U.S. citizens anywhere in the world based on an accusation only?
On March 21, 2011, Rep. Kucinich stated that Obama “crossed the line” calling the attack on Libya an indisputable “impeachment offense.” And, Senator Richard Lugar (Ind) who is the top representative on Foreign Relations Committee also said, “We are not declaring war at this point, we’ve already fired off 110 missiles, tomahawks, at Libya and had some aircraft support…but my point this week publicly has been that if we were going to war with Libya we ought to have a Declaration of War by the Congress.” Well, there was no Declaration of War by Congress.
Ironically, in 2007, Obama stated, “The President does not have the power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.” So, again, I ask the question, “When did Congress declare war on Libya? And, which nation is the “homeland” battling? We should ask under which authority is congress applying that provides congressional members the authority to target American citizens as “enemy combatants” and deny “due process of law” under sections 1031 and 1032? ***(This article may be shared but not Plagiarized by a Third Party)
