Pentagon to Deploy 20,000 Troops Inside the U.S. to Curb Potential Civil Unrest

by Shepard Ambellas and Alex Thomas



Global Research, July 25, 2011
The Intel Hub

       “Please get this information out to everyone. It is better to be safe than sorry.”  —  Shepard

In 2008 The Pentagon announced plans to deploy a 20,000 strong internal troop force inside the continental United States (CONUS) that was set to be trained by 2011, thus dovetailing into the current troop and equipment movements around the country reported by truckers as well as many more troop sightings by everyday citizens.

Interestingly enough, this plan directly correlates with a 2009, Army funded, Rand Corporation study [.pdf] that called for an internal United States police force to combat civil unrest.

    This study asks several questions. First, is a Stability Police Force (SPF) necessary? An SPF is a high-end police force that engages in a range of tasks such as crowd and riot control, special weapons and tactics (SWAT), and investigations of organized criminal groups. In its ability to operate in stability operations, it is similar to such European forces as the Italian Carabinieri and French Gendarmerie.

    Its focus on high endtasks makes it fundamentally different from UN or other civilian police, who deal with more routine law and order functions. It is also different from most military forces, which are generally not trained and experienced to conduct policing tasks in a civilian environment.

    Second, if an SPF is necessary, what should it look like? This includes considering such issues as: its objectives, tasks, and size; its speed of deployment; its institutional capabilities; where it should be headquartered in the U.S. government and how it should be staffed (standing force, reserve force, and hybrid force); and its cost.

It is openly admitted that the internal force will be used to quail civil unrest due to massive large scale terror attacks and/or economic collapse.

Will the powers-that-be stage a repeat of the martial law threats to congress that they presented back in 2008 to get the bailouts passed, to get the debt ceiling raised now?

Rep. Brad Sherman laid out exactly took place during the bailouts in 2008:

       http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaG9d_4zij8 (Rep. Brad Sherman Martial Law)

Many people have voiced fears that this will turn our country into a total militarized police state, wondering what will happen in the future once the sheeple are conditioned to the military roaming the streets in America.

Others have speculated that this announcement directly coincides with all of the pre-positioning of troops, equipment, and (NOTAM) No-Fly Zones throughout The United States over the last few months.

Does any of this correlate with the debt ceiling (economy), earth changes, or nuclear threats from reactors in danger within the US?

 Geo.
 The elites syndicate, does not leave much to chance.
 The truly outrageous tip of their plan could be a very publicised hit.
Senario, demos are infiltrated and violence erupts. Armed forces are called in to quell the demo, disperse the crowds and patrol the streets. However, if one of the Elites lackeys shoots a soldier, well lets face it, all hell would break loose.
  Kent State comes to mind.
MLK was a genius, peacefull demos being attacked by by sadists, exposing the cruelty to the nation and the world. During that era the MSM actually had the ballsaks to display the truth on Americas tellys.
 The true (hammer) controll of our MSM was put into effect,leaving the  average Joe Cit  angry about the current situation, but they do not have an idea what the FK is coming down. In those days we had firebrands the 3 K's, the truth was unavoidable.
  This may sound nieve, but in a manner of thinking, this is a soul thing. That is To say, our government has genocided innocents over 1/2 million, torture has become the norm, civilans are killed in the numbers each day..What are the reaction of this horror to our leaders and silent majority?  ZIP. What soul?
 Did I go off the map again?

Not if I understand you correctly. Unless I'm mistaken, you're essentially echoing both the point that Henry George made when he wrote...

    "...I am firmly convinced, as I have already said, that to effect any great social improvement, it is sympathy rather than self-interest, the sense of duty rather than the desire for self-advancement, that must be appealed to. Envy is akin to admiration, and it is the admiration that the rich and powerful excite which secures the perpetuation of aristocracies. Where tenpenny Jack looks with contempt upon ninepenny Joe, the social injustice which makes the masses of the people hewers of wood and drawers of water for a privileged few, has the strongest bulwarks."


...and that Thomas Paine made when he wrote:

    "He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself."

An alarming number of people in our society are quite frankly self-obsessed sociopaths infected with the infantile, arrested-development mindset of:

    "ME ME ME! MINE MINE MINE! F**K EVERYONE ELSE!"

Until a critical mass of our fellow citizens grow up and grow out of this mindset, our "outer" reality will continue to reflect our "inner" reality. (Anyone familiar with David Icke's writings knows exactly what I'm talking about.)

Report from the Frontlines: Origins of the #OccuppyWallStreet 99% Movement

A Report from the Frontlines: The Long Road to #OccupyWallStreet and the Origins of the 99% Movement

by David DeGraw
AmpedStatus
September 29th, 2011

How Anonymous, AmpedStatus, the NYC General Assembly, US Day of Rage, Adbusters and Thousands of Individual Actions Led to the Occupation of Liberty Park and the Birth of a Movement



As the occupation of Wall Street moves into its third week, there are many questions about the organizers behind the ongoing protests and the origins of the 99% Movement. As one of the many people who actively supported the effort, and helped launch the 99% Movement, I will give my perspective on the events leading up to the occupation of Liberty Park.

As I understand it, the #OccuppyWallStreet 99% Movement is a decentralized non-violent rebellion against economic tyranny. It is a leaderless movement that has been dependent upon tens of thousands of individuals taking it upon themselves to take action and fight back against their own personal financial hardships, and in defense of their family and friends who are desperately struggling to make ends meets.

The road that led to the successful occupation has been a long, hard and winding one. When you go to Liberty Park, into the heart of the occupation, you will see a very diverse group of people with opinions across the entire political spectrum. It is the very essence of a ground-up grassroots decentralized movement. Everyone there has their own individual story on what brought them to take such a strong and inspiring stand in support this action. I urge members of the press and people interested in the movement to begin a dialogue with any one of the people taking part. There are many fascinating stories to be heard and a deeper understanding of what’s happening is impossible without hearing from a plurality of voices.

To give some background information, the following is a timeline of my 19-month long personal experience within the movement:

The Birth of the 99% Movement

On February 15th, 2010, AmpedStatus.com published the first-part of an extensive six-part series that I wrote detailing the financial destruction of the US economy. The report is entitled, “The Economic Elite Vs. The People of the United States.” The first sentence reads:

    “It’s time for 99% of Americans to mobilize and aggressively move on common sense political reforms.”

The introduction goes on to say:

    “It has now become evident to a critical mass that the Republican and Democratic parties, along with all three branches of our government, have been bought off by a well-organized Economic Elite who are tactically destroying our way of life. The harsh truth is that 99% of the US population no longer has political representation. The US economy, government and tax system are now blatantly rigged against us.

    Current statistical societal indicators clearly demonstrate that a strategic attack has been launched and an analysis of current governmental policies prove that conditions for 99% of Americans will continue to deteriorate. The Economic Elite have engineered a financial coup and have brought war to our doorstep… and make no mistake, they have launched a war to eliminate the US middle class.”

The report quickly went viral and many popular websites picked it up and published it. AlterNet.org featured an adapted excerpt from the report with the headline, “The Economic Elite Have Engineered an Extraordinary Coup, Threatening the Very Existence of the Middle Class.” It became one of the most popular reports that they have ever published. In aggregate, across many websites that have publish sections of the report, it has received an estimated five million page views.

Soon after the report was released, AmpedStatus formed the 99% Movement based on a general platform put forth in part-six of the report, entitled “How to Fight Back and Win: Common Ground Issues That Must Be Won.”

As the movement began to build over the course of the next ten months, after a series of TV interviews in which I supported the 99% Movement and called for acts of non-violent civil disobedience, the AmpedStatus.com website was attacked and repeatedly knocked offline. The source of the attacks remains unknown. After publishing investigative reports detailing the fraudulent activities of Wall Street; the destructive impact the financial elite have had upon the American people; revealing direct connections between economic hardships in the US and the uprisings that, at the time, were just beginning to take shape throughout Northern Africa, the Middle East and Europe, it was obvious that we were upsetting many powerful forces.

Protesters Target Fed, As Well As Wall Street

Protesters Target Fed, As Well As Wall Street

Washington’s Blog
Oct 3, 2011
 
The protesters are not just targeting Wall Street and the big banks. They’re also railing against the Federal Reserve:



(See this for the background of this image by WilliamBanzai7.)
 
Indeed, at the “Occupy Boston” protest outside the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, protesters yelled their derision for the Fed:

     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fV0YjQQzYk

Indeed, as David DeGraw points out, criticism of the Fed is one of the main motivations driving Anonymous to help organize the protests:

    On Mar 12, 2011, Anonymous A99 announced their first operation by posting a video to the AmpedStatus YouTube page. The effort was called “Operation Empire State Rebellion” (#OpESR). The video “OpESR Communication #1” stated the following:

    “We are a decentralized non-violent resistance movement, which seeks to restore the rule of law and fight back against the organized criminal class.

    One-tenth of one percent of the population has consolidated wealth in unprecedented fashion and launched an all-out economic war against 99.9% of the population.

    We are not affiliated with either wing of the two-party oligarchy. We seek an end to the corrupted two-party system by ending the campaign finance and lobbying racket.

    Above all, we aim to break up the global banking cartel centered at the Federal Reserve, International Monetary Fund, Bank of International Settlement and World Bank.

    We demand that the primary dealers within the Federal Reserve banking system be broken up and held accountable for rigging markets and destroying the global economy, effective immediately.

    As a first sign of good faith, we demand Ben Bernanke step down as Federal Reserve chairman.

    Until our demands are met and a rule of law is restored, we will engage in a relentless campaign of non-violent, peaceful, civil disobedience.”

Objectively – and without using any hyperbole – it is true that the Federal Reserve is largely responsible for destroying the economy. Indeed, many current and former high-level Fed officials and other top economic officials have slammed the Fed as well.

Obama Machine Prepares To Hijack ‘Occupy Wall Street’

Obama Machine Prepares To Hijack ‘Occupy Wall Street’

Backer of Wall Street puppet Obama – MoveOn.org – wants to “support the effort”
 
Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Monday, October 3, 2011

The leftist juggernaut MoveOn.org, a Democratic Party front which vehemently backed Obama’s 2008 election campaign, is set to hijack the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protests this week, which is pretty ironic given the fact that the Obama administration is a creature of Wall Street itself.



After largely staying out of the protests thus far, “MoveOn.org is expected to mobilize its extensive online regional networks to drum up support for the effort,” reports Crain’s New York Business.

The Obama front organization has supported the demonstrators by way of its website coverage, but this marks the first time that MoveOn will actively engage to organize ‘Occupy Wall Street’ events which its members will attend.

The hypocrisy of MoveOn.org seizing control of a protest movement dubbed ‘Occupy Wall Street’ is staggering. MoveOn.org “endorsed Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic Party primaries, fundraised and organized for him, and has become perhaps the lead lobby organization for his policies,” reports SourceWatch.

The organization is also strongly supported by billionaire George Soros, with Soros having donated around $5 million dollars to the group in recent years.

So we have a Soros-backed organization which has aggressively lobbied for Obama, whose 2008 campaign was bankrolled by Wall Street (almost $2 million donated by Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan Chase), whose 2012 run is being bankrolled by Wall Street, and whose cabinet is filled with Wall Street operatives, now announcing its involvement in protests against Wall Street.

Liberals really need to wake up and smell the coffee on this one.

People with diverse beliefs have thus far taken part in the demonstrations which have now spread across the country, from marxists to End the Fed populists. However, as we documented yesterday, the movement is quickly being consumed by the leftist machine that activated millions of Obamanoids to vote for the ultimate Wall Street puppet back in 2008.

A story which was linked prominently on the Drudge Report yesterday betrays the fact that many of the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protesters are actually Obama supporters and advocates of a totalitarian form of statist tyranny – big government communists posing as anarchists and progressives.

This is the army that MoveOn.org will attempt to rouse to completely hijack the whole movement and silence the voices who are actively trying to steer the narrative of the protest towards concentrating on the genuine oligarchs of the US financial system.

Although Shamus Cooke is way too far to the "Left" for my taste, he is nevertheless spot on when, in his latest article, he writes the folllowing:

    The need for concrete political demands becomes all the more important now that the financial elite is the target. And although the Occupy Wall Street movement has put forth some excellent demands, they have not elaborated specific policies that would achieve these demands. Some examples of their demands include: "Ending wealth inequality, ending homelessness, ending poverty, and ending political corruption.”

    The protesters might think that making the demands broad enough will open the gates to a wider number of people. But these demands create two dangers:

    1) working people may simply view the demands as unattainable, since all people would like to end poverty but see no way to achieve it.

    2) vague demands invite political opportunists into the fold, who would like to join the movement in order to kill it.

    For example, President of the group Rebuild the Dream, Van Jones, has recently pushed his Democratic Party-friendly organization into the Occupy Wall Street fold. And although Rebuild the Dream puts forth some progressive demands, its ultimate purpose is to mobilize people to re-elect President Obama, a puppet of Wall Street.

    If Occupy Wall Street openly identifies both Democrats and Republicans as being in the pockets of Wall Street, opportunists like Jones would find no platform to push their nefarious ulterior motives. In the same way that many rich Egyptians exploited the anti-Mubarack protests for their own ends, the U.S. protests face a similar threat, though better disguised.



For an illustration of "specific policies" behind which a critical mass of informed and "mad as hell" citicizens could unite across both party and ideological lines, see the following:

Protests: Both Conservatives and Liberals Are Right

Just Looking at Different Sides of the Same Coin

Washington’s Blog
October 10, 2011

The Occupy Wall Street protests are obviously targeting Wall Street, i.e. the giant banks.

The Occupy the Fed protests – led by Alex Jones, the Oathkeepers and other conservatives – are targeting the Federal Reserve. *

While some are trying to weaken these two movements through a divide-and-conquer strategy, the truth is that they are two sides of the same coin.

Specifically, the corrupt, giant banks would never have gotten so big and powerful on their own. In a free market, the leaner banks with sounder business models would be growing, while the giants who made reckless speculative gambles would have gone bust. See this, this and this.

It is the Federal Reserve, Treasury and Congress who have repeatedly bailed out the big banks, ensured they make money at taxpayer expense, exempted them from standard accounting practices and the criminal and fraud laws which govern the little guy, encouraged insane amounts of leverage, and enabled the too big to fail banks – through “moral hazard” – to become even more reckless.

Indeed, the government made them big in the first place. As I noted in 2009:

-----------------

As MIT economics professor and former IMF chief economist Simon Johnson points out today, the official White House position is that:

    (1) The government created the mega-giants, and they are not the product of free market competition

    ***

    (3) Giant banks are good for the economy

-----------------

And given that the 12 Federal Reserve banks are private – see this, this and this – the giant banks have a huge amount of influence on what the Fed does. Indeed, the money-center banks in New York control the New York Fed, the most powerful Fed bank. Indeed, Jamie Dimon – the head of JP Morgan Chase – is a Director of the New York Fed.

Any attempt by the left to say that the free market is all bad and the government is all good is naive and counter-productive.

And any attempt by the right to say that we should leave the giant banks alone because that’s the free market are wrong.

The Federal Reserve and the giant banks are part of a single malignant, symbiotic relationship. Conservatives and liberals should unite in breaking up both.


* This is an over-simplification. In reality, many conservatives and people who would like to end the Fed are part of the Wall Street protests … and reining in the Fed is one of the central platforms of Occupy Wall Street.

Senate Moves To Allow Military To Intern Americans Without Trial

Senate Moves To Allow Military To Intern Americans Without Trial

NDAA detention provision would turn America into a “battlefield”

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Saturday, November 26, 2011

The Senate is set to vote on a bill next week that would define the whole of the United States as a “battlefield” and allow the U.S. Military to arrest American citizens in their own back yard without charge or trial.



“The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself,” writes Chris Anders of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office.

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.

The bill was drafted in secret by Senators Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), before being passed in a closed-door committee meeting without any kind of hearing. The language appears in sections 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA bill.

“I would also point out that these provisions raise serious questions as to who we are as a society and what our Constitution seeks to protect,” Colorado Senator Mark Udall said in a speech last week. One section of these provisions, section 1031, would be interpreted as allowing the military to capture and indefinitely detain American citizens on U.S. soil. Section 1031 essentially repeals the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 by authorizing the U.S. military to perform law enforcement functions on American soil. That alone should alarm my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, but there are other problems with these provisions that must be resolved.”

This means Americans could be declared domestic terrorists and thrown in a military brig with no recourse whatsoever. Given that the Department of Homeland Security has characterized behavior such as buying gold, owning guns, using a watch or binoculars, donating to charity, using the telephone or email to find information, using cash, and all manner of mundane behaviors as potential indicators of domestic terrorism, such a provision would be wide open to abuse.

“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?” asks Anders.

The ACLU is urging citizens to call their Senator and demand that the Udall Amendment be added to the bill, a change that would at least act as a check to prevent Americans being snatched off the streets without some form of Congressional oversight.

We have been warning for over a decade that Americans would become the target of laws supposedly aimed at terrorists and enemy combatants. Alex Jones personally documented how U.S. troops were being trained to arrest U.S. citizens in the event of martial law during urban warfare training drills back in the 90′s. Under the the National Defense Authorization Act bill, no declaration of martial law is necessary since Americans would now be subject to the same treatment as suspected insurgents in places like Afghanistan and Iraq.

If you thought that the executive assassination of American citizens abroad was bad enough, now similar powers will be extended to the “homeland,” in other words, your town, your community, your back yard.

With the whole world falling apart...what timing!  Let's see if they actually pass it...I have my doubts that it will pass in this form.  However, this is not saying that they should not be flooded with phone calls, emails and letters...they should and need to be.  This bill is absolutely the most dangerous power to give any government.

Yes, Americans Will Be Targeted As Terrorists Under the NDAA

Republican Congressman Amash warns that bill can be applied to U.S. citizens

Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
Infowars.com
Monday, November 28, 2011

Controversy over whether or not Americans are exempt from a provision of the National Defense Authorization Act bill, set to be voted on this week by the Senate, which defines the the entirety of the United States as a battleground in the war on terror, has been addressed by Republican Congressman Justin Amash, who warns that the bill does apply to U.S. citizens.

As we previously reported, 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 this week, 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.

That provoked concerns that American citizens could be targeted as terrorists and indefinitely detained without trial or charge.

“One section of these provisions, section 1031, would be interpreted as allowing the military to capture and indefinitely detain American citizens on U.S. soil. Section 1031 essentially repeals the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 by authorizing the U.S. military to perform law enforcement functions on American soil. That alone should alarm my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, but there are other problems with these provisions that must be resolved,” Colorado Senator Mark Udall said in a speech earlier this month.

Following an ACLU alert on the legislation, some pointed out that the text of the bill actually exempts Americans from being detained under the new “homeland battlefield” designation under the proviso that “the requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.”

However, as Republican Congressman Justin Amash told the The Grand Rapids Press today, the language of the bill is “carefully crafted to mislead the public.”

“Note that it does not preclude U.S. citizens from being detained indefinitely, without charge or trial, it simply makes such detention discretionary,” Amash wrote on his Facebook page.

The controversy over whether or not the text of the bill suggests the legislation applies to U.S. citizens is largely inconsequential given the fact that every piece of anti-terror legislation passed since 9/11 has been used against Americans, both at home and abroad.

The Patriot Act was passed in the name of giving federal authorities the tools to catch terrorists, but it has been used in hundreds of cases against American citizens, often in cases that have no relation whatsoever to terrorism.

Furthermore, as Ron Paul has pointed out, Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen who has never been charged with any crime, was the victim of extrajudicial killing because of the same unconstitutional legalese that defines the entire globe as a “battlefield,” where the constitutional rights of U.S. citizens are declared null and void if they are designated as terrorists by the federal government.

Indeed, national intelligence director Dennis Blair openly stated last year that, “Being a U.S. citizen will not spare an American from getting assassinated by military or intelligence operatives.”

Recall that José Padilla, an American citizen, was held without charge for 3 and a half years as an “enemy combatant” and denied a trial in civilian court, after being accused of planning to detonate a “dirty bomb,” an accusation that was enough to keep Padilla in a military brig for over three years yet was never proven.

As far back as December 2002, the Washington Post reported that a “parallel legal system” had been put in place under the auspices of the war on terror, in which terrorism suspects — U.S. citizens and noncitizens alike — may be investigated, jailed, interrogated, tried and punished without legal protections guaranteed by the ordinary system.”

The “battlefield” provision of the NDAA is nothing new, it is merely an updating of existing policy that has been applied to American citizens on numerous occasions over the last decade.

The difference is that the danger of American citizens being detained without trial as terrorists on frivolous pretexts is an even greater danger now given that the Department of Homeland Security has characterized behavior such as buying gold, owning guns, using a watch or binoculars, donating to charity, using the telephone or email to find information, using cash, and all manner of mundane behaviors as potential indicators of domestic terrorism.

30 Signs That The United States Of America Is Being Turned Into A Giant Prison

The American Dream
Tuesday, November 29, 2011

If you live in the United States of America, you live in a giant prison where liberty and freedom are slowly being strangled to death.  In this country, the control freaks that run things are obsessed with watching, tracking, monitoring and recording virtually everything that we do.  Nothing is private anymore.  Everything that you do on the Internet is being monitored.  All of your phone calls are being monitored.  In fact, if law enforcement authorities suspect that you have done something wrong, they will use your cell phone microphone to listen to you even when you think your cell phone is turned off.  In many areas of the country, when you get into your car automated license plate readers track you wherever you go, and in many major cities when you are walking on the streets a vast network of security cameras and “smart street lights” are constantly watching you and listening to whatever you say.  The TSA is setting up “internal checkpoints” all over the nation, Homeland Security is encouraging all of us to report any “suspicious activity” that our neighbors are involved in and the federal government is rapidly developing “pre-crime” technology that will flag us as “potential terrorists” if we display any signs of nervousness.  If you are flagged as a “potential terrorist”, the U.S. military can arrest you and detain you for the rest of your life without ever having to charge you with anything.  Yes, the United States of America is rapidly being turned into a “Big Brother” prison grid, and most Americans are happily going along with it.

The sad thing is that this used to be “the land of the free and the home of the brave”.

So what in the world happened?

A fundamental shift in our culture has taken place.  The American people have eagerly given up huge chunks of liberty and freedom in exchange for vague promises of increased security.

Our country is now run by total control freaks and paranoia has become standard operating procedure.

We were told that the terrorists hate our liberties and our freedoms, and that we needed to fight the terrorists so that we could keep our liberties and our freedoms.

But instead, the government keeps taking away all of our liberties and our freedoms.

How in the world does that make any sense?

Have the terrorists won?

As a country, we have moved so far in the direction of communist China, the USSR and Nazi Germany that it is almost impossible to believe.

Yes, turning the United States of America into a giant prison may make us all slightly safer, but what kind of life is this?

Do we want to be dead while we are still alive?

Is this the price that we want to pay in order to feel slightly safer?

Where are the millions of Americans that still yearn to breathe free air?

America is supposed to be a land teeming with people thirsting for independence.  For example, “Live Free or Die” is supposedly the official motto of the state of New Hampshire.

But instead, the motto of most Americans seems to be “live scared and die cowering”.

We don’t have to live like this.

Yes, bad things are always going to happen.  No amount of security is ever going to be able to keep us 100% safe.

We need to remember that a very high price was paid for our liberty and we should not give it up so easily.

As one very famous American once said, when we give up liberty for security we deserve neither.

The following are 30 signs that the United States of America is being turned into a giant prison….

Battlefield Earth: Resist NWO Tyranny or Die Under It

The Excavator
Tuesday, November 29, 2011



“This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty towards the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry.

The War on Terrorism was never about catching Al-Qaeda and killing the terrorists who were accused of committing the 9/11 attacks, mainly because Islamic terrorists didn’t do the 9/11 attacks.

The new world order terrorists in the shadow CIA and the zionist terrorists in the shadow Mossad are the guilty parties who killed three thousand innocent Americans on 9/11 and used the tragedy to pursue their own evil ends.

The World War that 9/11 spawned was always about destroying America and Western democracy. The neocon plan for regime change in the Middle East is connected with the globalist plan for regime regime change in North America and Europe. One plot cannot be understood if the other is not taken into consideration.

Both the people of the Middle East and the people of the West are victims of the new world order cabal.

NWO governments in the West have prepared for riots and social unrest following the coming planned economic collapse by equipping the police and military with high-tech gear and armor, as well as taking police state measures to prohibit the exercise of citizen rights in public space.

In America, the traitors in the Senate and the House are doing the unthinkable: giving the criminal shadow government the power to detain American citizens in the dark of night and then throw away the key to their freedom.

On November 28, Paul Joseph Watson and Alex Jones wrote in their article, “Yes, Americans Will Be Targeted As Terrorists Under the NDAA”:

    Controversy over whether or not Americans are exempt from a provision of the National Defense Authorization Act bill, set to be voted on this week by the Senate, which defines the the entirety of the United States as a battleground in the war on terror, has been addressed by Republican Congressman Justin Amash, who warns that the bill does apply to U.S. citizens.

    As we previously reported, 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 this week, 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.

    That provoked concerns that American citizens could be targeted as terrorists and indefinitely detained without trial or charge.

This bill crosses a red line. But it is not the first and it won’t be the last.

The traitors who hijacked America have consistently attacked the core principles and foundations of American society and the Western tradition of the rule of law.

Behind the veil of counter-terrorism and the war on terror, they have declared war upon America and humanity. It is time that we all face this fact, and take the necessary steps in our own lives to one day restore truth, justice, and freedom in public life.

This won’t be easy. Resisting and defeating our hijacked governments that are hell bent on destroying our rights and enslaving us to their global fascist system will require sacrifice.

But we must not fail the future and turn our back on humanity in this hour of crisis. We must defend the cause of freedom and individual dignity in the West.

What transpired on 9/11 is proof that our leaders do not believe in the value of human life and the universality of law. They are cold-blooded mass murderers who will never end their reign of terror.

A century of war and tyranny has been planned. The government terrorists will stage more false flag terrorist attacks in America and other Western countries to keep this evil plan in motion.

Our job as free thinking citizens is to stop this hidden plot for total world domination, expose the murderous traitors who are involved, and then hang them and bury their bodies in the sea alongside their patsy buddy, Osama Bin Laden.

So exactly why won't an amendment pass that will clarify that this will NOT be used against American cities?  Let me ask you another question, why does Russia have warships going to Syria?  Well neither person is going to be truthful, we can only assume the worse.

Traitors in Washington Are Putting A Flamethrower to The U.S. Constitution

Saman Mohammadi
THE EXCAVATOR
Wednesday, November 30, 2011

“The military-industrial complex, owned by the big banks, has hijacked America. I keep explaining this to people, and now it doesn’t just want to dominate the Third World or the Middle East or Asia, or encircle other countries in Europe, it wants to dominate this country. And the military-industrial complex is a bunch of off-shore corporations. They run the red light cameras, they run the federalization of local police. They’re just occupying America through NORTHCOM,” said radio host Alex Jones on Russia Today on November 29, 2011.

Alex was asked about Senate Bill 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which says that any American citizen or global citizen who opposes the global witch hunt against “terrorists” and the emerging global technocratic dictatorship will be held in jail without trial.

The bill is important to talk about because it is a stunning indication of how far America has fallen under the current treacherous leadership, and points to the hellish homegrown dictatorship that the country is blindly marching towards. Americans classified as “homegrown terrorists” and “domestic extremists” won’t just be detained and tortured by the nutcases in Washington, they will also be targeted for state execution.

The precedent for assassinating an American citizen was set by Washington’s shadow government not this year when Al-Qaeda patsy Al-Awlaki was killed, but on November 22, 1963, when President John F. Kennedy was murdered by CIA gunmen in Dallas.

In the post-9/11 world, every American and every citizen of the world who stands up for the rights of the individual is demonized as a terrorist and a radicalized conspiracy theorist. And if a nation asserts its independence it is declared a rogue state by the mad leaders of the West.

Indeed, the new world order dictatorship is not a conspiracy theory anymore. It is a fact of 21st century life and global politics. The language of Senate bill 1867 turns the whole world into a battlefield in which any one of us could become a potential victim of the genocidal madness of the Bankster Occupied Governments (BOGs) in Washington, London, Paris, Ottawa, Berlin, Tel Aviv, and other capitals around the world.

This little treacherous creature, and these two other traitors, are the strongest supporters of NDAA. They love the fact that the bill is so anti-American and anti-human.

Every senator who votes for the bill will be exposed as an anti-American soulless scum who wishes to sign away the future of America and the freedoms of the American people.

In a Washington Post Op-Ed on Sunday, November 27, the co-sponsors of the treasonous bill, (T) John McCain and (T) Carl Levin, who chair the Senate Armed Services Committee, defended the bill by using the brave and heroic martyrs of the American military as political cover for their evil political program:

Congress has passed a defense authorization bill every year for five decades. This year’s bill includes pay raises for our troops, funding for equipment to protect them from roadside bombs, and medical care and other benefits for them and their families. It would be extremely unfortunate if disagreements over these detainee provisions prevented us from passing this bill and fulfilling those duties. But it would be tragic if this happened because of misunderstandings about what the bill says and does.

What the bill says now can be reinterpreted and twisted to apply to future conditions. As Alex Jones pointed out in the interview on Russia Today, the dictatorial powers of the bill will be used against American citizens who want to take back their country from the banksters, not shadowy Al-Qaeda terrorists who are on the payroll of the shadow CIA.

In an Infowars Nightly News Report on Monday, November 28, Alex highlighted the most monstrous and shocking parts of the bill, and said that it signifies the rise of NORTHCOM in the United States.

NORTHCOM, following in the footsteps of CENTCOM and AFRICOM, will be used to spread terror in the hearts and minds of the North American population.

The masters of terror who did the 9/11 attacks will commit more acts of state terrorism to maintain control of their brutal and evil system.

The Bankster Occupied Governments that live on terror will not give people anywhere the chance to breathe and reflect on the chaos that they are engineering in the world. They want people to silently submit to their fate of perpetual slavery and mass death.

And millions of slave-minded people will bow down to the mad government architects of global destruction and global terror because they don’t want to see the full horror of what they have passively accepted for a decade.

But those of us who love honor and bravery must have the spirit and determination to defeat these monsters. We are stuck at the bottom of this hell, but this is not our collective fate. We can decide our own destiny and chart a new course in human history.

For the time being, however, we must embrace the suck, as Marines say, until we find a way to reach to the surface of freedom and hope.

NDAA: Another Step in the Fascist Takeover of America

NDAA: Another Step in the Fascist Takeover of America

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
December 1, 2011

The Senate is ready to vote on legislation permitting the U.S. military to capture and indefinitely detain citizens on American soil. The language appears in sections 1031 and 1032 of the National Defense Authorization Act.


Military detains citizens in Pinochet’s Chile.

“While the legislation still has several steps to go, the vote makes it likely that Congress will eventually send to President Obama’s desk a bill that contains detainee-related provisions his national-security team has said are unacceptable,” the New York Times reports.

The bill was drafted in secret by Senators Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), before being passed in a closed-door committee meeting without any kind of hearing.

Obama has signaled that he will veto the bill if it is enacted by the Senate.

The Obama administration said prior to the vote that the proposed legislation is “inconsistent with the fundamental American principle that our military does not patrol our streets.”

In other words, even Obama – who supports the Patriot Act and has diligently worked to expand Bush’s war on terrorism – believes the Senate bill violates Posse Comitatus.

The newly elected Senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, has come out against the legislation that will allow the Pentagon to arrest U.S. citizens and hold them indefinitely without due process or a trial as specified by the Sixth Amendment.

Paul told Judge Andrew Napolitano it perplexed him “how anyone could vote to send an American citizen who’s been accused of a crime to a detention center in a foreign land without due process.”

Paul offered an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that would strip Section 1031 from the legislation. He was joined in the failed effort by California Democrat Dianne Feinstein, who said the government “should not have the ability to lock away its citizens for years and perhaps decades without charging them.”

Other members of Congress have voiced opposition to the bill, including Colorado Senator Mark Udall. “I would also point out that these provisions raise serious questions as to who we are as a society and what our Constitution seeks to protect,” he said in a speech.

Behind the scene globalists have plotted for years against the Constitution because they understand that the founding document guarantees every citizen certain inalienable rights that cannot be revoked or taken away by government. The Constitution stands in the way of their vision of a world totalitarian government and financial system.

In recent years, the global elite have launched an insidious campaign against the Constitution by claiming that its principles are outdated relics of an irrelevant past. In June, CNN contributor Fareed Zakaria argued that the Constitution is outdated and its principles should be “debated and fixed” to conform with the modern era. He suggested “a set of amendments to modernize the Constitution for the 21st Century.”

“It should come as no surprise Fareed Zakaria wants to do away with the Constitution. He is a darling of the Council On Foreign Relations and a Bilderberg member. He also sits on the board of the Trilateral Commission. He is a serious globalist and as such an avowed enemy of the Constitution and especially the Bill of Rights,” I wrote at the time.

By exploiting the manufactured threat of terrorism, the globalists hope to convince the American people that such legislation is in their best interest.

If Obama’s threatened veto is overridden and National Defense Authorization Act becomes law, it will allow the state to disappear its domestic political enemies the same way the dictator Pinochet in Chile eliminated his political opposition. Military kidnappings, torture and secret execution are the tactics of thugs in places like Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia and Communist China, not the United States.

Occupied America: Senate bill 1867 would allow U.S. military to detain and murder anti-government protesters in American cities

by Mike Adams
NaturalNews.com
December 01, 2011

(NaturalNews) I don't know if you're all getting this through your heads yet, but Senate Bill 1867 -- the National Defense Authorization Act -- would openly "legalize" the U.S. government's detainment and murder of OWS protesters and the assassination of talk show hosts, bloggers, journalists and anyone who holds a so-called "anti-government" point of view. This is the open and blatant declaration of war against any who do not going along with TSA thugs reaching down your pants, the Goldman Sachs economic takeover of nations, the secret arrest and torture of American citizens, and other acts of outright tyranny waged by an out-of-control government.

Those who have been burying their heads in the sand over the coming police state need to wake up and face the music. That U.S. Senators would knowingly and willfully attempt to pass a bill that legalizes the indefinite detainment, torture and killing of American citizens with no due process whatsoever -- and on American soil! -- is nothing less than a traitorous betrayal of the once-free American people. These are, our founding fathers would have said, acts of war against the People. They reveal the insidious plan to put in place a legal framework to end the Bill of Rights, murder protesters, and overrun America with total police state brutality.

And yet the sheeple are still asleeple

I grow weary of trying to warn the American people to wake up and see what is now right in front of their eyes, so for those who want to read these words themselves -- right in the Senate bill -- you can read it at: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c112:S.1867:

And YES, it has now been confirmed that the indefinite detainment and murder provisions do apply to American citizens on the streets of American cities. As Sen. Lindsey Graham explained in plain language on the Senate floor: "...1031, the statement of authority to detain, does apply to American citizens and it designates the world as the battlefield, including the homeland."

That means America, for those of you who are still wondering what "homeland" means. It's a phrase borrowed from Nazi Germany, of course, which is the source of much of this legislation as you might have noticed.

"The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself," says the ACLU (http://www.aclu.org/blog/national-security/senators-demand-military-lock-american-citizens-battlefield-they-define-being).

Homefront: The U.S. government's war against the People

If this bill passes and is signed into law, it would mean that America's war machine could then be turned against the American people -- liberal, conservative, libertarian... it doesn't matter. If you question the government, you are suddenly an "enemy combatant" and they will cite this law as the legal justification for putting a bullet in your head, fire-bombing your little protest group, or literally running over you and your buddies with tanks. (And they won't stop like China did in Tiananmen Square when that one brave citizen stood up against tyranny there in 1989.) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6inWKFKv9UA)

The premeditate murder of U.S. protesters (Occupy Wall Street, anyone?) is now being codified into law as the government's "right." Of course, your rights to Free Speech, due process, owning a firearm and other rights are being obliterated in the process. Only the government has "rights" now, didn't you know? The slaves of the nation (i.e. the citizens) are being stripped of all rights, including the right to grow your own food, have a picnic or even buy fresh dairy products from a farmer.

Governments routinely murder far more people than terrorists

Right now, every history teacher in America should be absolutely outraged about all this, as they know what always comes next in the history of nations. Once any government "legalizes" the murder of its own citizens, it is inevitably followed by a mass-murder holocaust-style event.

Tyrants, you see, always like to "legalize" their mass murder before they pull the trigger. Just read the history of Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao and others. In every case, they worked diligently to put into place a legal framework for the mass murder that was about to be unleashes on their own citizens. That legal framework looks strikingly similar to Senate Bill 1867, which is about to be passed.

This also brings to mind the mathematical reality that, statistically speaking, governments are orders of magnitude more deadly than terrorists. While terrorists sometimes success in taking out a few thousand people at a time, governments routinely murder tens of MILLIONS of people.

It's called GENOCIDE, and there's a long and well-documented history of how governments have committed genocide year after year, one nation after another:

     http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genocides_in_history

See more statistics at:

     http://www.scaruffi.com/politics/dictat.html

So if the People of America had any courage at all, they would be running the People's road blocks and searching government vehicles for weapons! It is the government agents, after all, who are statistically at the highest risk of engaging in mass murder, and very soon the U.S. Senate looks likely to effectively legalize that mass murder.

At the airports, We the People should be searching the TSA employees and checking them for illegal drugs, child pornography and stolen electronics. At government buildings, We the People should be searching all the government employees who come and go to make sure they don't stage the demolition of their own buildings as a way to blame whatever convenient enemy they want to discredit -- patriots, conservatives, "conspiracy theorists" or what have you.

It's no longer a conspiracy theory, you see, that the government wants to have the legal right to openly murder U.S. citizens right on the streets of America. It's written right into the Senate bill. It's public record. So all those out there still clinging to their pathetic denialist "conspiracy theorists" rants can now clamp shut their pie holes and throw themselves off a cliff or something. It's time to face the reality of the total police state tyranny that's now written in black and white, plain as day.

All of you who are still obsessed with your narrow world view of fashion, dancing with the stars, microwaveable processed food and fake mainstream news are about to be rocked out of your easy chairs and dumped into the cesspool of tyranny at your doorstep. Just know that when they come for you, there will be nobody left to speak for you, because you remained silent as all this was rolled out. And I won't be there for you, either, because I'll be holed up in Texas, handing out emergency food supplies to the local churches and performing emergency medicine procedures on those protesters wounded by U.S. government military attacks -- the ones that are still alive, anyway.

You think none of this is coming? Why would the U.S. Senate write this into law if they didn't intend on using it to murder Americans? Maybe you need to clear the cobwebs out of your head and open your eyes to what's really happening right now in the U.S. Senate.

Read between the lines, folks. It's not that difficult to get the full picture here. The very idea that the U.S. Senate is even considering such a law to "legalize" the detainment and murder of U.S. citizens on U.S. soil by U.S. troops is, all by itself, a complete and utter crime against the American people.

The U.S. Senate is about to declare WAR on the American people. And I don't mean that metaphorically. They are trying to make this a military war where anyone who opposes the U.S. government -- even if they have nothing at all to do with "terrorism" -- is now a fair game target for precision bombings, assassinations and heavy military armor (i.e. tanks rolling down your driveway).

‘Indefinite Detention’ Bill Passes Senate 93-7

‘Indefinite Detention’ Bill Passes Senate 93-7

Americans completely stripped of all rights under Section 1031

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Friday, December 2, 2011

The Senate last night codified into law the power of the U.S. military to indefinitely detain an American citizen with no charge, no trial and no oversight whatsoever with the passage of S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act.



One amendment that would have specifically blocked the measures from being used against U.S. citizens was voted down and the final bill was passed 93-7.

Another amendment introduced by Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein that attempted to bar the provision from being used on American soil, an effort to ensure “the military won’t be roaming our streets looking for suspected terrorists,” also failed, although Feinstein voted in favor of the bill anyway.

Feinstein was able to include a largely symbolic amendment which states that “nothing in the bill changes current law relating to the detention of U.S. citizens and legal aliens,” but this measure is meaningless according to Republican Congressman Justin Amash, a fierce critic of the bill.

“Some have asserted that Sen. Feinstein’s amendment, S Amdt 1456, protects the rights of American citizens and preserves constitutional due process. Unfortunately, it does not. It’s just more cleverly worded nonsense,” Amash wrote on his Facebook page.Though the White House has threatened to veto the bill, the fact that Obama administration lawyers yesterday reaffirmed their backing for state sponsored assassination of U.S. citizens would suggest otherwise. Not voting for the bill, or in other words upholding the oath to protect the Constitution, has been described over and over again as “political suicide”.

“The bill puts military detention authority on steroids and makes it permanent, American citizens and others are at greater risk of being locked away by the military without charge or trial,” said Christopher Anders, senior legislative counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union.

As Spencer Ackerman highlights, the bill completely violates the sixth amendment in that it allows American citizens to be locked up indefinitely, including in a foreign detention center, without any burden of proof whatsoever. An American merely has to be declared a terrorist and they can be abducted off the streets and never seen again.

“The detention mandate to use indefinite military detention in terrorism cases isn’t limited to foreigners. It’s confusing, because two different sections of the bill seem to contradict each other, but in the judgment of the University of Texas’ Robert Chesney — a nonpartisan authority on military detention — “U.S. citizens are included in the grant of detention authority,” writes Ackerman.

THANKS A BUNCH, LESSER EVIL VOTERS!
« Reply #101 on: December 02, 2011, 02:23:24 pm »
I hope everyone realizes that the overwhelming bipartisan support for the treasonous "Indefinite Detention" bill is the inevitable result of lesser evil voting!

If you'd like to know who to sarcastically thank for how ridiculously bad things have gotten in recent years, thank "lesser evil voters."

So brainwashed, so sheeplike, and so emotionally wedded to the false left-right/Democrat-Republican paradigm are lesser evil voters, that even if the Republican and Democratic nominees were Hitler and Stalin -- and God himself was the third party candidate -- the two "major" candidates would still get over 90% of the vote. ::)

The Evils of Lesser Evil Voting

Joel S. Hirschhorn
American Chronicle
June 02, 2007

Condemn progressives for voting enthusiastically for Democrats and the inevitable response is something like “just imagine how much worse voting for Republicans would be.” Similarly, many true conservatives and Libertarians see voting for Republicans as a necessary evil. With many progressives regretting giving Democrats a majority in Congress and many conservatives regretting putting George W. Bush in the White House, it is timely to refute lesser evil logic.

Inevitably, lesser evil voters face personal disappointment and some shame. Politicians that receive lesser evil votes do not perform according to the values and principles that the lesser evil voter holds dear. These voters must accept responsibility for putting ineffective, dishonest and corrupt politicians in office. Though they may be lesser evils, they remain evils.

All too often lesser evil voters avoid shame and regret and prevent painful cognitive dissonance by deluding themselves that the politician they helped put in office is really not so bad after all. Corrosive lesser evil voting erodes one’s principles as pragmatism replaces idealism. This makes the next cycle of lesser evil voting easier.

Lesser evil voting helps stabilize America’s two-party duopoly that greatly restricts true political competition. Third party and independent candidates – and minor Democratic and Republican candidates in primaries – are defeated by massive numbers of lesser evil voters. Despite authentically having the political goals that mesh with many voters on the left or right, these minor “best” candidates fall victim to lesser evil voting. Lesser evil voters are addicted to a self-fulfilling prophesy. They think “If I vote for a minor candidate they will lose anyway.” They ensure this outcome though their lesser evil voting. The truly wasted vote is the unprincipled lesser evil vote.

Effective representative democracy requires politically engaged citizens that vote. Lesser-evil voters support the current two-party system with its terribly low voter turnout and chronic dishonesty and corruption. Lesser evil voters help put into office disappointing politicians, not the best people that would restore American democracy and show more citizens that voting is valuable. Lesser evil voters demonstrate the validity of turned-off citizens’ view that it really does not matter which major party wins office.

Politicians knowingly market themselves to lesser evil voters by constructing phony sales pitches, especially to certain audiences outside of their more certain base constituents. Democrats make themselves look more progressive than they really are, and Republicans make themselves look more conservative than they really are. Lesser evil voters are phony, and they produce a phony political system. Lesser evil voters contribute mightily to the travesty of our political system that no sane person respects and has confidence in.

Lesser evil voting demonstrates the worst aspects of political compromise. This is the common cause of terrible laws. When citizens surrender so much of what they truly believe in, they enable compromise politicians to create bad public policy that, in the end, satisfies very few people and puts band-aids on severe problems. Lesser evil voters concede victory to the other side – the side they view as the worse alternative because the people they vote for will not stand up for what is right and necessary. Think Iraq war. Even when their lesser evil side wins, they do not have the principled positions that would prevent awful compromises, often in the name of bipartisanship that is a clever way to justify our corrupt two-party mafia.

Lesser evil voters deride the alternatives of not voting or voting for minor candidates. The outcome should the “other” side win is deemed unacceptable. There is worse and there is worst. The core problem with lesser evil voters is that they are short term thinkers. They fail to see the repeated long term consequence of their style of voting – a system over many election cycles that persists in delivering suboptimal results. The “good” outcome in the current election (from their perspective) is the enemy of the “better” solution in the longer term (from an objective perspective). The better solution is major reform that will never happen as long as lesser evil voting persists.

Understand this: Lesser evil voting is not courageous. It is cowardly surrender to the disappointing two-party status quo. Lesser evil voters should trade regret for pride by voting for candidates they really think are the best. Voters in this presidential primary season have some remarkable opportunities to transform fine minor candidates into competitive major candidates – more honest and trustworthy people like Ron Paul, Mike Gravel and Dennis Kucinich, for example.

Finally, the deadly decline of American democracy results in large measure from lesser evil voters electing lesser evil politicians. When virtually no elected public official is there because most voters have embraced his clear principled, trustworthy positions we get a government that is easily corrupted by corporate and other moneyed interests. We get what we have now. And if you are dissatisfied with that, then reconsider the wisdom of lesser evil voting. We will only get the best government by voting for the best candidates. Otherwise, we get what we deserve and what the power elites prefer.

-------------------------------------


But will lesser evil voters change their insane ways in next year's "election"? Of course not. They'll go right on voting for one or the other of the two banker-owned major parties that jointly created this horrific mess in the first place -- insisting all the while that that's the only way not to "waste" one's vote -- and will then have the nerve to complain when they continue to get the very Nazi-style police state policies and corporate fascist economic policies that they insisted on voting for yet again.

Right, Romney supporters?

Right, Gingrich supporters?

Right, Perry supporters?

Right, Obamanoids?

The Military Occupation of America By The Bankster-Owned Traitors

The Military Occupation of America By The Bankster-Owned Traitors

Saman Mohammadi
The Excavator
December 3, 2011

    “If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.” – James Madison.

    “Over grown military establishments are under any form of government inauspicious to liberty, and are to be regarded as particularly hostile to republican liberty.” – George Washington.

    “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Don’t say America wasn’t warned.

As Alex Jones has said throughout the past decade on his heroic radio show, the military occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan was a test run for what’s coming: the military occupation of America.

The drones, the battle-tested troops, the high-tech gadgets, the trigger-happy mercenaries, will all be used against the American people. Farms, houses, families, dreams, will all be destroyed. The ruling financial raiders will take no prisoners alive.

The banksters in Washington and London have pillaged America for a century and brainwashed its outstanding military to pillage and burn the rest of the world. Now the time has come to burn America down. They want America to be consumed by the fires of hell.

And the banksters plan on using the same military to burn down America that burned down Germany, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and many other nations that opposed the diseased and satanic Western banksters.

All those nations were sacrificed and conquered by the banksters on their hidden road to world government. In this decade, America has to be sacrificed for their kleptocratic world government to finally rise from the shadows of history.

The grand conspiracy to destroy America can no longer be dismissed and ridiculed as a conspiracy theory thought up by paranoid freaks. Time has proved the “conspiracy theorists” and “truthers” right.

The global psychopathic banksters and their political mercenaries in Washington are making it clear to all who can see that they want America to collapse and die. If they have their way the American people will be militarily occupied, fired upon by brainwashed thugs, illegally imprisoned, tortured, harassed at checkpoints, raided at gunpoint, humiliated, stripped of their freedom and dignity, and massacred.

On Thursday, December 1, the traitors in the Senate advanced the plot to destroy America by passing into law the controversial National Defense Authorization Act by a vote of 93-7. The Senate gave the U.S. military the dictatorial power to “to indefinitely detain an American citizen with no charge, no trial and no oversight whatsoever.”

The passage of the NDAA bill and similar legislation shows that the treacherous Senate wants most of the troops to leave Iraq and Afghanistan so they can be used to occupy America as it goes into an engineered economic collapse.

So move over Iraqis and Afghans, Americans will now replace you as the most deadly insurgents and terrorists on the planet. Sounds crazy? Well, America and the world is being held hostage by criminal banksters on Wall Street and psychopathic state terrorists in Washington and Israel so anything can happen.

Remember Waco. Remember 9/11. Americans mean nothing to the globalist traitors in Washington. Another false flag terrorist attack in America is a given. The maniacs in charge of Washington will sacrifice and destroy the people of all lands and all cultures.

The illegal and illegitimate war on terror will be increasingly fought on American soil, where it originally began on September 11, 2001, when the shadow terrorists in the CIA and Mossad killed three thousand Americans in cold blood.

The shadow terrorists in the CIA and Mossad are not only waging war against Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, and Pakistan, they are also waging war against America and Western freedom.

Speaking to Alex Jones on December 1, Stewart Rhodes, the founder of Oath Keepers, said:

    “We need to be prepared for the very worst, and what that will mean is asymmetric warfare like our founding fathers in the southern campaign had to fight. Francis Marion, the swamp fox, the Overmountain Men who defeated the loyalists at Kings Mountain. All of that is an example of what will have to be done. And this country will be like Afghanistan. I’m not saying I’m trying to compare Americans to the Taliban or anything like that, but the point is you will see resistance like that. You will see that kind of hardcore resistance in the United States, but it is my hope and prayer that you can avoid doing that by having enough of the military and police simply side with what’s right. Side with the Constitution. Side with the Bill of Rights. Side with the Declaration of Independence. And do what’s right.”

Rhodes added:

    “If they’re going to treat the American people like an occupied, conquered civilian population, like Iraq or Afghanistan, then the American people will treat them like occupiers.”

No one can predict how future events will play out. But if the Vietnamese people and the Iraqi people can withstand the almighty capabilities of the American war machine and live to fight another day, then so can the American people.

The struggle for freedom from tyranny is not just an American struggle but a global struggle. People everywhere are under attack by totalitarian governments and the criminal banks and corporations that profit from them. As the language of the Senate NDAA legislation implies, the entire world is a battlefield. Freedom fighters are labeled terrorists and killed without due process.

We all need to reject the “global battlefield” idea, and assert our individual rights. The fire of Freedom in the Western world must not be allowed to be extinguished by the blowhards in government who invent enemies to scare the people and rob countries of their sacred honour.

It is our generation’s honorable task to guard and preserve freedom. We have to be smart, brave, and resilient. We don’t have all the answers, but we understand that blindly going down the road of global tyranny will be a betrayal of our values, our ancestors, and future generations of human beings.

The obstacles that we face are less tough than the obstacles that George Washington and the American freedom fighters faced in 1776. We “conspiracy theorists” may have allies in the press, government, and military who we don’t know about, and who will speak up for freedom and justice when the time is right.

When will that time come? Sooner than we realize.

The military occupation of America will illustrate to everybody that America is an occupied colony of the criminal banksters, not an empire. Up until now, America has been mentally and financially occupied by the corporate mainstream press and Federal Reserve, but it won’t be long before it is physically occupied by the hijacked military.

Occupation is what Martial Law and the perpetual State of Emergency is all about. The police and military have not been trained to defend the “homeland,” but to rape and destroy America.

When the reality that America is occupied by criminal banksters and two-faced traitors is recognized by the majority of the American people and the world, the “terrorists,” “conspiracy theorists,” and “domestic extremists” will be seen for what they truly are: the righteous defenders of truth, freedom, justice, and the rule of law.

Whether or not truth, freedom justice and the rule of law will survive in the 21st century depends on what kind of men and women we are. Are we men and women who worship the Totalitarian State, or God? Are we men and women who hopelessly watch and don’t speak up when our fellow human beings are premeditatedly murdered by government terrorists? Are we men and women who think it is funny and cool to ridicule people who have different thoughts about world events, history, and reality? Are we shallow suckers who think and act like sheep or are we something more?

I believe we are something more. Humanity is capable of greatness. I believe noble leaders in America and the West will rise to challenge the corruption of Western governments, banks, corporations, and the press. Ron Paul is an example of a noble leader. American history is filled with great leaders who appeared at the edge of a national crisis and answered the call.

President John F. Kennedy, the martyred knight of liberty, said in his “City Upon a Hill” speech:

    “For of those to whom much is given, much is required. And when at some future date the high court of history sits in judgment on each one of us–recording whether in our brief span of service we fulfilled our responsibilities to the state–our success or failure, in whatever office we may hold, will be measured by the answers to four questions:

    First, were we truly men of courage–with the courage to stand up to one’s enemies–and the courage to stand up, when necessary, to one’s associates–the courage to resist public pressure, as well as private greed?

    Secondly, were we truly men of judgment–with perceptive judgment of the future as well as the past–of our own mistakes as well as the mistakes of others–with enough wisdom to know that we did not know, and enough candor to admit it?

    Third, were we truly men of integrity–men who never ran out on either the principles in which they believed or the people who believed in them–men who believed in us–men whom neither financial gain nor political ambition could ever divert from the fulfillment of our sacred trust?

    Finally, were we truly men of dedication–with an honor mortgaged to no single individual or group, and compromised by no private obligation or aim, but devoted solely to serving the public good and the national interest.”

JFK’s assassination proved that no one is safe in the United States from the brutality and viciousness of the banker hijacked U.S. government and the traitors who serve it.

The 9/11 attacks proved that the American people and people around the world are held hostage by the governments in Washington and Tel Aviv.

The mass murder of innocent individuals on 9/11 and 7/7 emphasized the reality that we are all marked for death by the criminal terrorists in power – even people inside the highest temples of modern civilization.

Both state terrorist attacks also symbolized that America and the West are already under occupation.

Protesters March Against Bill That Could Designate Them Terrorists

Protesters March Against Bill That Could Designate Them Terrorists

Exercising First Amendment defined as “low-level terrorism” by DoD

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Monday, December 5, 2011

Occupy Portland protesters marched yesterday against a provision of the National Defense Authorization Act that could lead them to be designated as terrorists and carted off to a foreign detention camp.



“Protesters took issue with the $662 billion defense spending bill, singling out language in the U.S. Senate version that says U.S. citizens suspected of terrorism can be detained indefinitely,” reports The Oregonian.

As we highlighted last week, Section 1031 of the NDAA bill, which will become law if approved by President Obama, declares the whole of the United States as a “battlefield” and allows American citizens to be arrested on U.S. soil and incarcerated in Guantanamo Bay.

Given the fact that the Department of Defense now defines exercising the First Amendment as “low-level terrorism,” demonstrators have every right to be concerned about being targeted by Section 1031 of the NDAA bill.

As we reported back in 2009, the DoD’s Antiterrorism and Force Protection Annual Refresher Training Course advises its personnel that political protest amounts to “low-level terrorism”.

The training introduction reads:

“Anti-terrorism (AT) and Force Protection (FP) are two facets of the Department of Defense (DoD) Mission Assurance Program. It is DoD policy, as found in DoD I 2000.16, that the DoD Components and the DoD elements and personnel shall be protected from terrorist acts through a high priority, comprehensive, AT program. The DoD’s AT program shall be all encompassing using an integrated systems approach.”

The first question of the Terrorism Threat Factors, “Knowledge Check 1 section reads:

Which of the following is an example of low-level terrorism activity?

Select the correct answer and then click Check Your Answer.

- Attacking the Pentagon
- IEDs
- Hate crimes against racial groups
- Protests

In order to proceed, users must give the “correct” answer as “Protests”.

According to the document, all DoD personnel are required to complete the course on a yearly basis.

Since the Obama administration has asserted the right to assassinate anyone in the world, even American citizens, should they be designated “terrorists,” should we be concerned that exercising the right to free speech now falls under that category?

Readers may not agree with everything espoused by ‘Occupy’ protesters, but whatever your political cause, the fact that the Senate has just passed a bill that greases the skids for indefinite detention for suspected terrorists, behavior which now includes activism and protesting, is yet another reminder that America is now a fully fledged police state, in which the federal government asserts more power than Hitler or Stalin ever dreamed of.

Misreading the Fight over Detention: Obama Has No Constitutional Scruples

Misreading the Fight over Military Detention: The Obama Regime Has No Constitutional Scruples

The amendment permits indefinite detention of US citizens by the US military
 
Paul Craig Roberts
Prisonplanet.com
December 5, 2011

During an interview with RT on December 1, I said that the US Constitution had been shredded by the failure of the US Senate to protect American citizens from the detainee amendment sponsored by Republican John McCain and Democrat Carl Levin to the Defense Authorization Bill.
 
The amendment permits indefinite detention of US citizens by the US military. I also gave my opinion that the fact that all but two Republican members of the Senate had voted to strip American citizens of their constitutional protections and of the protection of the Posse Comitatus Act indicated that the Republican Party had degenerated into a Gestapo Party.
 
These conclusions are self-evident, and I stand by them.
 
However, I jumped to conclusions when I implied that the Obama regime opposes military detention on constitutional grounds.

Ray McGovern and Glenn Greenwald might have jumped to the same conclusions.

An article by Dahlia Lithwick in Slate reported that the entire Obama regime opposed the military detention provision in the McCain/Levin amendment. Lithwick wrote: “The secretary of defense, the director of national intelligence, the director of the FBI, the CIA director, and the head of the Justice Department’s national security division have all said that the indefinite detention provisions in the bill are a bad idea. And the White House continues to say that the president will veto the bill if the detainee provisions are not removed.”

I checked the URLs that Lithwick supplied. It is clear that the Obama regime objects to military detention, and I mistook this objection for constitutional scruples.

However, on further reflection I conclude that the Obama regime’s objection to military detention is not rooted in concern for the constitutional rights of American citizens. The regime objects to military detention because the implication of military detention is that detainees are prisoners of war. As Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin put it: Should somebody determined “to be a member of an enemy force who has come to this nation or is in this nation to attack us as a member of a foreign enemy, should that person be treated according to the laws of war? The answer is yes.”

Detainees treated according to the laws of war have the protections of the Geneva Conventions. They cannot be tortured. The Obama regime opposes military detention, because detainees would have some rights. These rights would interfere with the regime’s ability to send detainees to CIA torture prisons overseas. This is what the Obama regime means when it says that the requirement of military detention denies the regime “flexibility.”

The Bush/Obama regimes have evaded the Geneva Conventions by declaring that detainees are not POWs, but “enemy combatants,” “terrorists,” or some other designation that removes all accountability from the US government for their treatment.

By requiring military detention of the captured, Congress is undoing all the maneuvering that two regimes have accomplished in removing POW status from detainees.

A careful reading of the Obama regime’s objections to military detention supports this conclusion.

     http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/legislative/sap/112/saps1867s_20111117.pdf

The November 17 letter to the Senate from the Executive Office of the President says that the Obama regime does not want the authority it has under the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), Public Law 107-40, to be codified. Codification is risky, the regime says. “After a decade of settled jurisprudence on detention authority, Congress must be careful not to open a whole new series of legal questions that will distract from our efforts to protect the country.”

In other words, the regime is saying that under AUMF the executive branch has total discretion as to who it detains and how it treats detainees. Moreover, as the executive branch has total discretion, no one can find out what the executive branch is doing, who detainees are, or what is being done to them. Codification brings accountability, and the executive branch does not want accountability.

Those who see hope in Obama’s threatened veto have jumped to conclusions if they think the veto is based on constitutional scruples.

Detention Camp Order Follows Preparations For Civil Unrest

Detention Camp Order Follows Preparations For Civil Unrest

KBR seeks sub-contractors to outfit “emergency environment” centers

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Wednesday, December 7, 2011

The revelation that Halliburton subsidiary KBR is seeking sub-contractors to staff and outfit “emergency environment” camps located in five regions of the United States follows preparations over the last three years to deal with riots inside the United States that have already spread throughout Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.



As Infowars reported last night, a document sent to us by a state government employee confirms that Kellogg Brown & Root Services are looking to activate camps built for FEMA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers across the United States.

This follows the Senate’s passage of Section 1031 of the National Defense Authorization Act which allows American citizens to be snatched off the street and held in detention camps without trial.

In 2006, KBR was contracted by Homeland Security to build detention centers designed to deal with “an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S,” or the rapid development of unspecified “new programs” that would require large numbers of people to be interned.

Since 2006, the world has been beset by riots and civil unrest as a result of the fallout from the economic collapse. From the United Kingdom, to continental Europe, to the Middle East and North Africa, almost every corner of the globe has experienced social dislocation.

Now U.S. authorities are preparing for such eventualities on home soil, with major police departments like the NYPD staging “mobilization exercises” to train police to prepare for civil disorder in the United States.

Warnings and preparation for civil unrest coming to the United States have been voiced on a regular basis.

Back in 2008, U.S. troops returning from Iraq were earmarked for “homeland patrols” with one of their roles including helping with “civil unrest and crowd control”.

In December 2008, the Washington Post reported on plans to station 20,000 more U.S. troops inside America for purposes of “domestic security” from September 2011 onwards, an expansion of Northcom’s militarization of the country in preparation for potential civil unrest following a total economic collapse or a mass terror attack.

A report produced that same year by the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Institute warned that the United States may experience massive civil unrest in the wake of a series of crises which it termed “strategic shock.”

“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” stated the report [.pdf], authored by [Ret.] Lt. Col. Nathan Freir, adding that the military may be needed to quell “purposeful domestic resistance”.

The United States has continuity of government plans in place should martial law be declared by the President. However, the details of those plans have been so tightly guarded that even Congressman and Homeland Security Committee member Peter DeFazio (D – OR), who has the necessary security clearance, was denied access to view the material when he requested to do so back in July 2007.

Under the terms of the the National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645, first introduced in January 2009 and still awaiting passage, emergency camps are to be made available to “meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security,” an open ended mandate which many fear could mean the forced detention of American citizens in the event of widespread rioting after a national emergency or total economic collapse.

With many Americans now becoming “pre-revolutionary” as a result of their fury at the Obama administration and equally unpopular lawmakers in Washington, potential civil unrest could spring not just from a poverty-stricken underclass, but also the shrinking middle class.

Indeed, top elitist Zbigniew Brzezinski warned earlier this year that middle class unrest caused by economic disenfranchisement would soon hit America.

Perhaps that’s why the Department of Homeland Security is increasingly focusing its anti-terror apparatus on white middle class Americans, portraying them as domestic terrorists in a series of PSA videos. In addition, ‘Occupy’ protesters are also now being characterized as terrorists.

The fact that detention camps have been constructed inside America and are now being staffed and readied for “emergency” situations can no longer be ignored or ridiculed as a conspiracy theory.

Kellogg Brown & Root need to be completely transparent and explain where the camps are located, what they contain, and during what type of “emergencies” are they planned to be used for.

Existence of Military Detention Centers Signals America’s Descent Into Martial Law

Saman Mohammadi
The Excavator
December 10, 2011

    “Regna regnis lupi, the State a wolf unto the State. It is not a pessimistic lamentation like the old homo homini lupus, but a positive creed and political ideal. Now it is unfortunate for this theory that every community, even one of animals, is based on mutual trust of beings which could destroy one another. Without mutual trust a community of human beings or States is impossible. A State which emblazons the 'Do not trust me' on its shield, which is what the theorists of the amoral State would actually have it do, could only exist in a like-minded world by maintaining an absolute superiority of power over all other States combined.” - Johan Huizinga, In the Shadow of Tomorrow, pg. 151-152. (1936).

    “A master narrative is a dwelling place. We are intended to live in it.” - Robert Fulford, The Triumph of Narrative: Storytelling in the Age of Mass Culture, pg. 32. (1999).

There is a state of siege in America.

First of all, it is a mental siege, because of the widespread fear of questioning the official 9/11 story and other taboo subjects, but, increasingly, it is a military siege.

On Tuesday, December 6, Infowars.com reported in an article called, “Exclusive: Government Activating FEMA Camps Across U.S.” that it “received a document originating from Halliburton subsidiary KBR that provides details on a push to outfit FEMA and U.S. Army camps around the United States. Entitled “Project Overview and Anticipated Project Requirements,” [.pdf] the document describes services KBR is looking to farm out to subcontractors.” The article went on to state:

    “The KBR document is more evidence that the federal government has established internment camps and plans to fill them with dissidents and anti-government activists that have been demonized consistently by the establishment media.”

The existence of military detention centers in America has been acknowledged for several years in the alternative media. In 2007, the website Project Censored listed “Homeland Security Contracts KBR to Build Detention Centers in the US,” as number fourteen in the top twenty five censored stories of 2007.

Project Censored pointed to a July 2002 article in the Sydney Morning Herald called “Foundations are in place for martial law in the US,” by Ritt Goldstein. Goldstein wrote: “FEMA, whose main role is disaster response, is also responsible for handling US domestic unrest.”

Fears of martial law in America are completely rational. A number of historians, authors, and journalists have warned that America is entering a period of violence, protests and social collapse in which the hijacked U.S. government will impose martial law to restore stability in the country.

In February 2008, former Democratic Congressman Dan Hamburg co-authored an article with Lewis Seiler, founder of Voice of the Environment, called “Rule by fear or rule by law?” about the U.S. government’s secret plans for martial law. They wrote:

Govt. Says It Can Assassinate or Indefinitely Detain Americans on American Soil Without Any Due Process

Washington’s Blog
Wednesday, December 21, 2011

I’ve previously noted that Obama says that he can assassinate American citizens living on U.S. soil.

This admittedly sounds over-the-top.  But one of the nation’s top constitutional and military law experts – Jonathan Turley – agrees.

Turley:

- Is the second most cited law professor in the country
- Has worked as both the CBS and NBC legal analyst during national controversies
- Ranks 38th in the top 100 most cited ‘public intellectuals’ in a recent study by a well-known judge
- Is one of the top 10 lawyers handling military cases
- Has served as a consultant on homeland security and constitutional issues
- Is a frequent witness before the House and Senate on constitutional and statutory issues

Turley said yesterday on C-Span (starting at 15:50):

    President Obama has just stated a policy that he can have any American citizen killed without any charge, without any review, except his own. If he’s satisfied that you are a terrorist, he says that he can kill you anywhere in the world including in the United States.

    Two of his aides just … reaffirmed they believe that American citizens can be killed on the order of the President anywhere including the United States.

    You’ve now got a president who says that he can kill you on his own discretion. He can jail you indefinitely on his own discretion

    ***

    I don’t think the the Framers ever anticipated that the American people would be so apathetic. They assumed that people would hold their liberties close, and that they wouldn’t relax …

[Embedded video omitted - see original article]

The Government Has Never Given a Rationale for Assassination

While one might assume that the government has given a valid justification for the claim that it can assassinate anyone anywhere, the Washington Post noted yesterday:

    In outlining its legal reasoning, the administration has cited broad congressional authorizations and presidential approvals, the international laws of war and the right to self-defense. But it has not offered the American public, uneasy allies or international authorities any specifics that would make it possible to judge how it is applying those laws.

    ***

    “They’ve based it on the personal legitimacy of President Obama — the ‘trust me’ concept,” American University law professor Kenneth Anderson said. “That’s not a viable concept for a president going forward.”

    ***

    Under domestic law, the administration considers assassinations to be covered by theAuthorization for Use of Military Force that Congress passed days after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. In two key sentences that have no expiration date, the AUMF gives the president sole power to use “all necessary and appropriate force” against nations, groups or persons who committed or aided the attacks, and to prevent future attacks. But the government just broadened the authorization for use of military force from those who attacked us on 9/11 to include the Taliban and the vague category of "associated forces".

    ***

    The authorization did not address targets’ nationality or set geographical boundaries, and there was “nothing about the permission of the government” of any country where a terrorist might be found, the former official said.

And see this.

Almost Any American Could Be Arbitrarily Labeled a “Terrorist”

As I’ve previously noted, this is especially concerning when almost any American could be labeled a “terrorist” if the government doesn’t happen to like them:

New Bill Authorizes Rendition of American Citizens Living within the United States to Other Countries for Torture

Washington's Blog
December 21, 2011

Top experts – including the sponsors of the bill – say that the newly-passed National Defense Authorization Act authorizes indefinite detention of Americans living within the United States.

Top legal experts point out that the government claims the right to assassinate American citizens on U.S. soil without any charges, trial or other constitutional protection.

I noted last month that Congress was considering repealing prohibitions against torture. (I wrote to attorneys at the ACLU, but haven’t received word yet on whether such a provision has been enacted).

However, Mother Jones notes today that Congress has explicitly authorized rendition, allowing American Citizens on U.S. soil to be sent to other countries which do torture:

Happy New Year: Obama Signs NDAA, Indefinite Detention Now Law of the Land

President signs authorization to indefinitely detain, torture and deny trial to Americans; grants power to all future presidents.

Aaron Dykes & Alex Jones
PrisonPlanet.com
January 1, 2012

Indeed it is a new day. Ushering in the New Year, President Obama signed legislation that helps to further destroy the principles the nation was founded upon.

President Obama, who pledged to veto the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), has now signed it. Of course, his promise was only for public consumption. After all, lying to your enemy is what invading corporate takeover armies do. It was the Obama administration all along that demanded the indefinite detention provisions be added while at the same time telling the American people he was fighting to protect their rights. This is treason on parade, in your face all out despotism– that is, for those paying any attention!

In this video is Alex Jones’ reaction to the bill and Obama’s accompanying signing statement:

       http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdxXhn3We7U

As the Associated Press reports, the President signed the bill on Saturday “despite having ‘serious reservations’ about provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation and prosecution of suspected terrorists.”

However, those reservations have nothing to do with the rights of the people under the Constitution and Bill of Rights that he swore to protect– rather, his reservations dealt with changes that “challenged the president’s terrorism-fighting ability.” He reportedly accepted the legislation only after such impedance was removed.

Instead, it was a deceptive maneuver to appear wary of such powers when the White House demanded it all along. In fact, Obama’s veto threat was always about that issue– the language over Section 1022 and NOT the authorization for the indefinite detention of Americans in Section 1021. Rather, it was a debate over “requiring” military protocol on detention rather than leaving the discretion over whether to detain to the executive branch, under the power of the Presidency.

Yesterday, with a friendly note, Obama issued a signing statement that read:

    “Moving forward, my administration will interpret and implement the provisions described below in a manner that best preserves the flexibility on which our safety depends and upholds the values on which this country was founded.”

Despite positioning himself in the signing statement as cautious towards the rights of the individuals in the nation, the President has just signed into law a provision that threatens the right of every American to due process, and a public trial with a jury. Instead, he has handed over grotesque authority to himself and EVERY President that comes after him, whatever their intentions might be.

Obama’s signing statement later states:

    "Moreover, I want to clarify that my Administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens. Indeed, I believe that doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a Nation."

Even if Obama’s stated intention here is true, it is no guarantee of the attitudes and interpretations of future presidents, or of the intent of their power advisors, many of whom operate the national security shadow network. Instead, it is yet another Constitution-destroying, power-grabbing so-called law.

The ACLU, too, warns about this deception:

Happy New Year: Obama Signs NDAA, Indefinite Detention Now Law of the Land

I can't resist mentioning once again that, according to lesser evil voters, the only way someone who rightly opposes the treasonous provisions within the newly-enacted NDAA can avoid "wasting" his or her vote is to vote for an establishment candidate who (you guessed it) supports those provisions. ::)

Lesser-evil voting has destroyed this nation. It's as simple as that.

And the worst thing of all is that -- no matter how many 3rd party/independent candidates are on the ballot this November -- the vast majority of the American electorate will do the same thing all over again!  ::) ::) ::)

Obama’s NDAA Signing Statement Is Meaningless

Obama’s NDAA Signing Statement Is Meaningless

Administration itself demanded power to detain American citizens without trial

Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
Prison Planet.com
Monday, January 2, 2012

Barack Obama’s signing statement that was added to the passage of the NDAA bill in an effort to dampen concerns over the ‘indefinite detention’ provision of the bill is smoke and mirrors for a number of reasons – prime amongst them the fact that it was the White House itself – not lawmakers – who demanded Section 1031 be expanded to empower the government to detain U.S. citizens without trial.

On first reading, Obama’s signing statement appears to assuage fears that American citizens could be targeted for arrest and detention without trial.

“My administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens … Indeed, I believe that doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a nation,” wrote Obama.

However, the statement is meaningless for a number of reasons.

Firstly, even if Obama manages to fulfil one of the rare occasions on which he keeps his word, this does nothing to stop future administrations from exercising the power to indefinitely detain American citizens without trial.

Secondly, the Obama administration is already carrying out even more egregious measures than those supposedly authorized within the NDAA, by targeting American citizens worldwide for state-sponsored assassination with no legal process whatsoever.

Thirdly, Obama has reversed almost every single promise he made to get elected – his word is no good. Given the right civil emergency, Obama could turn to indefinite detention of citizens without hesitation.

Crucially, Obama’s promise that he will not use the law to detain Americans without trial is completely hollow – because it was his administration that demanded the power to do so in the first place.

As the bill’s co-sponsor Senator Carl Levin said during a speech on the floor last month, it was the Obama administration that demanded the removal of language that would have precluded Americans from being subject to indefinite detention.

“The language which precluded the application of Section 1031 to American citizens was in the bill that we originally approved…and the administration asked us to remove the language which says that U.S. citizens and lawful residents would not be subject to this section,” said Levin, Chairman of the Armed Services Committee.

“It was the administration that asked us to remove the very language which we had in the bill which passed the committee…we removed it at the request of the administration,” said Levin, emphasizing, “It was the administration which asked us to remove the very language the absence of which is now objected to.”

If the Obama administration is so opposed to the idea of detaining Americans without trial, why did they push for such powers to be included in the final version of the National Defense Authorization Act?

It’s also necessary to highlight the fact that just because this bill has been passed into law, that shouldn’t bestow any kind of legitimacy to it given that indefinite detention is anathema to the bill of rights and the constitution. It was once a law that black people were not human – that doesn’t mean it’s right or should be given credence.

Myth busted: Yes, the NDAA does apply to Americans, and here’s the text that says so

Mike Adams
Natural News
Monday, January 2, 2012

In the aftermath of the signing of the NDAA by the traitorous President Obama, some citizens remain completely hoodwinked by the language of the bill, running around the internet screaming that the law “does not apply to American citizens.”

This is, naturally, part of the side effect of having such a dumbed-down education system where people can’t even parse the English language anymore. If you read the bill and understand what it says, it clearly offers absolutely no protections of U.S. citizens. In fact, it affirms that Americans are subjected to indefinite detainment under “existing authorities.”

Let’s parse it intelligently, shall we?

First off, the offending section of the bill that used to be called 1031 was moved to 1021. Here is the title:

(http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-112hr1540enr/pdf/BILLS-112hr1540enr.pdf)

SEC. 1021. AFFIRMATION OF AUTHORITY OF THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES TO DETAIN COVERED PERSONS PURSUANT TO THE AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE.

The two relevant sections to consider are titled and stated as follows:

(d) CONSTRUCTION. — Nothing in this section is intended to limit or expand the authority of the President or the scope of the Authorization for Use of Military Force.

By PARSING the language here, we must split it into two sentences based on the “or” operator. This statement essentially means:

• Nothing in this section is intended to LIMIT the authority of the President or the scope of the Authorization for Use of Military Force.

• Nothing in this section is intended to EXPAND the authority of the President or the scope of the Authorization for Use of Military Force.

In other words, this section places no limits whatsoever of the “authority of the President” to use military force (against American citizens). Keep that in mind as you read the next section:

(e) AUTHORITIES. — Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States, or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.

This section “e” is the section that the hoodwinked people on the internet are running around saying “protects American citizens” from the NDAA. But where do they dream up such language? If you read section (e) again, you’ll discover it says nothing whatsoever about protecting American citizens from the NDAA. Instead, here’s what it really says when parsed into two sentences based on the “or” operator:

Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing LAW relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States, or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.

Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing AUTHORITIES relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States, or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.

In other words, section (e) only says that it does notalter“existing authorities” relating to the detention of US citizens.

So to answer the question about whether this affects U.S. citizens, you have to understand “existing authorities.”

What are those “existing authorities?”

Existing authorities already allow indefinite detainment and the killing of American citizens

As everyone who studies history well knows, the Patriot Act already establishes an “existing authority” that anyone suspected of being involved in terrorist-related activities can be arrested and detained without trial. If you don’t believe me, just Google it yourself. This is not a debated issue; it’s widely recognized.

Furthermore, President Obama already insists that he has the authority to kill American citizens merely by decree! As Reuters reported on October 5, 2011, a “secret panel” of government officials (who report to the President) can decide to place an American citizen on a “kill list” and then murder that person, without trial, without due process, and without even being arrested. (http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/10/05/us-cia-killlist-idUSTRE79475C20111005)

Importantly, as Reuters reports, “Two principal legal theories were advanced [in support of the kill list authority] — first, that the actions were permitted by Congress when it authorized the use of military forces against militants in the wake of the attacks of September 11, 2001.”

Are you getting this yet? So the authority ALREADY exists for the President to order the killing of an American citizen. All that is required is that they be suspected of being involved in terrorism in any way, and not a shred of evidence is required by the government to support that. There is no trial, no arraignment, no evidence and not even a hearing. You are simply accused and then disappeared.

Thus, the authority already exists, you see, and the NDAA openly states that “Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing AUTHORITIES…”

In other words, the NDAA does nothing to protect American citizens, and it piggy-backs on the Patriot Act as well as Obama’s executive “kill list” justifications to essentially place all Americans in the crosshairs of government murderers or military action.

Final Curtain: Obama Signs Indefinite Detention of Citizens Into Law As Final Act of 2011

Jonathan Turley
Global Research
January 3, 2012

President Barack Obama rang in the New Year by signing the NDAA law with its provision allowing him to indefinitely detain citizens. It was a symbolic moment to say the least. With Americans distracted with drinking and celebrating, Obama signed one of the greatest rollbacks of civil liberties in the history of our country . . . and citizens partied only blissfully into the New Year.

Ironically, in addition to breaking his promise not to sign the law, Obama broke his promise on signing statements and attached a statement that he really does not want to detain citizens indefinitely.

Obama insisted that he signed the bill simply to keep funding for the troops. It was a continuation of the dishonest treatment of the issue by the White House since the law first came to light. As discussed earlier, the White House told citizens that the President would not sign the NDAA because of the provision. That spin ended after sponsor Sen. Carl Levin (D., Mich.) went to the floor and disclosed that it was the White House and insisted that there be no exception for citizens in the indefinite detention provision.

The latest claim is even more insulting. You do not “support our troops” by denying the principles for which they are fighting. They are not fighting to consolidate authoritarian powers in the President. The “American way of life” is defined by our Constitution and specifically the Bill of Rights. Moreover, the insistence that you do not intend to use authoritarian powers does not alter the fact that you just signed an authoritarian measure. It is not the use but the right to use such powers that defines authoritarian systems.

The almost complete failure of the mainstream media to cover this issue is shocking. Many reporters have bought into the spin of the Obama Administration as they did the spin over torture by the Bush Administration. Even today reporters refuse to call waterboarding torture despite the long line of cases and experts defining waterboarding as torture for decades. On the NDAA, reporters continue to mouth the claim that this law only codifies what is already the law. That is not true. The Administration has fought any challenges to indefinite detention to prevent a true court review. Moreover, most experts agree that such indefinite detention of citizens violates the Constitution.

There are also those who continue the long-standing effort to excuse Obama’s horrific record on civil liberties by either blaming others or the times. One successful myth is that there is an exception for citizens. The White House is saying that changes to the law made it unnecessary to veto the legislation. That spin is facially ridiculous. The changes were the inclusion of some meaningless rhetoric after key amendments protecting citizens were defeated. The provision merely states that nothing in the provisions could be construed to alter Americans’ legal rights. Since the Senate clearly views citizens are not just subject to indefinite detention but even execution without a trial, the change offers nothing but rhetoric to hide the harsh reality. The Administration and Democratic members are in full spin — using language designed to obscure the authority given to the military. The exemption for American citizens from the mandatory detention requirement (section 1032) is the screening language for the next section, 1031, which offers no exemption for American citizens from the authorization to use the military to indefinitely detain people without charge or trial.

Obama could have refused to sign the bill and the Congress would have rushed to fund the troops. Instead, as confirmed by Sen. Levin, the White House conducted a misinformation campaign to secure this power while portraying Obama as some type of reluctant absolute ruler, or as Obama maintains a reluctant president with dictatorial powers.

Most Democratic members joined their Republican colleagues in voting for this unAmerican measure. Some Montana citizens are moving to force the removal of these members who they insist betrayed their oaths of office and their constituents. Most citizens however are continuing to treat the matter as a distraction from the holiday cheer.

For civil libertarians, the NDAA is our Mayan moment. 2012 is when the nation embraced authoritarian powers with little more than a pause between rounds of drinks.

So here is a resolution better than losing weight this year . . . make 2012 the year you regained your rights.

Here is the signing statement attached to the bill:

How Congress Has Signed Its Own Arrest Warrants in the NDAA Citizen Arrest Act

by Naomi Wolf
Global Research, January 3, 2012
Naomi Wolf - 2011-12-12

I never thought I would have to write this: but—incredibly—Congress has now passed the National Defense Appropriations Act [.pdf], with Section 1021, which allows for the military detention of American citizens. The section is so loosely worded that any American citizen could be held without due process. The language of this bill can be read to assure Americans that they can challenge their detention — but most people do not realize what this means: at Guantanamo and in other military prisons, one’s lawyer’s calls are monitored, witnesses for one’s defense are not allowed to testify, and one can be forced into nudity and isolation. Incredibly, ninety-three Senators voted to support this bill and now most of Congress: a roster of names that will live in infamy in the history of our nation, and never be expunged from the dark column of the history books.

They may have supported this bill because—although it’s hard to believe—they think the military will only arrest active members of Al Qaida; or maybe, less naively, they believe that ‘at most’, low-level dissenting figures, activists, or troublesome protesters might be subjected to military arrest. But they are forgetting something critical: history shows that those who signed this bill will soon be subject to arrest themselves.

Our leaders appear to be supporting this bill thinking that they will always be what they are now, in the fading light of a once-great democracy — those civilian leaders who safely and securely sit in freedom and DIRECT the military. In inhabiting this bubble, which their own actions are about to destroy, they are cocooned by an arrogance of power, placing their own security in jeopardy by their own hands, and ignoring history and its inevitable laws. The moment this bill becomes law, though Congress is accustomed, in a weak democracy, to being the ones who direct and control the military, the power roles will reverse: Congress will no longer be directing and in charge of the military: rather, the military will be directing and in charge of individual Congressional leaders, as well as in charge of everyone else — as any Parliamentarian in any society who handed this power over to the military can attest.

Perhaps Congress assumes that it will always only be ‘they’ who are targeted for arrest and military detention: but sadly, Parliamentary leaders are the first to face pressure, threats, arrest and even violence when the military obtains to power to make civilian arrests and hold civilians in military facilities without due process. There is no exception to this rule. Just as I traveled the country four years ago warning against the introduction of torture and secret prisons – and confidently offering a hundred thousand dollar reward to anyone who could name a nation that allowed torture of the ‘other’ that did not eventually turn this abuse on its own citizens — (confident because I knew there was no such place) — so today I warn that one cannot name a nation that gave the military the power to make civilian arrests and hold citizens in military detention, that did not almost at once turn that power almost against members of that nation’s own political ruling class. This makes sense — the obverse sense of a democracy, in which power protects you; political power endangers you in a militarized police state: the more powerful a political leader is, the more can be gained in a militarized police state by pressuring, threatening or even arresting him or her.

Mussolini, who created the modern template for fascism, was a duly elected official when he started to direct paramilitary forces against Italian citizens: yes, he sent the Blackshirts to beat up journalists, editors, and union leaders; but where did these militarized groups appear most dramatically and terrifyingly, snapping at last the fragile hold of Italian democracy? In the halls of the Italian Parliament. Whom did they physically attack and intimidate? Mussolini’s former colleagues in Parliament — as they sat, just as our Congress is doing, peacefully deliberating and debating the laws. Whom did Hitler’s Brownshirts arrest in the first wave of mass arrests in 1933? Yes, journalists, union leaders and editors; but they also targeted local and regional political leaders and dragged them off to secret prisons and to torture that the rest of society had turned a blind eye to when it had been directed at the ‘other.’ Who was most at risk from assassination or arrest and torture, after show trials, in Stalin’s Russia? Yes, journalists, editors and dissidents: but also physically endangered, and often arrested by militarized police and tortured or worse, were senior members of the Politburo who had fallen out of favor.

Is this intimidation and arrest by the military a vestige of the past? Hardly. We forget in America that all over the world there are militarized societies in which shells of democracy are propped up — in which Parliament meets regularly and elections are held, but the generals are really in charge, just as the Egyptian military is proposing with upcoming elections and the Constitution itself. That is exactly what will take place if Congress gives the power of arrest and detention to the military: and in those societies if a given political leader does not please the generals, he or she is in physical danger or subjected to military arrest. Whom did John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, say he was directed to intimidate and threaten when he worked as a ‘jackal’, putting pressure on the leadership in authoritarian countries? Latin American parliamentarians who were in the position to decide the laws that affected the well-being of his corporate clients.

Totalitarianism: The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), Latest Chapter In the Road towards "Police State USA"

by Sherwood Ross



Global Research
January 11, 2012

"I believe," warned James Madison in a speech to the Virginia Convention on June 16, 1788, "there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations."

Surely, this is the story behind the New Year's Eve, 2011, signing by President Obama of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). While they were merry-making and tootling horns, NDAA stripped Americans of the last vestiges of their liberties. Now that President Obama can order the military to arrest and imprison you indefinitely on suspicion without trial, your First Amendment rights of speech, press, assembly, and petition have no meaning. Who are you going to assemble with from your jail cell?

NDAA is only the most recent chapter in a creeping totalitarian horror story going back decades. President Harry Truman vetoed the Internal Security Act of 1950 that codified indefinite detention without trial but his veto was overturned by Congress. Truman called the Act "the greatest danger to freedom of speech, press, and assembly since the Alien and Sedition Laws of 1798, a "mockery of the Bill of Rights" and a "long step toward totalitarianism."

That Act, a.k.a. the McCarran-Walter Act, was aimed at the Communist Party of the United States and authorized incarceration of those who would "probably engage in espionage or sabotage." At the time it would have been difficult to think of any example of any known U.S. Communist Party member anywhere engaging in sabotage. By contrast, it was about the same time the CIA was getting off to a jump start at overthrowing foreign governments by force and violence.

Under the Act, prominent individuals considered subversive were barred entry to the United States, limiting the free speech of American citizens. Among them: Argentine novelist Julio Cortazar, Colombian novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, and British novelist Graham Greene, Wikipedia recalls.

Totalitarianism continued its creep despite the objections of Senator George McGovern of South Dakota in 1970, who vainly blasted the "no knock" ordinance Congress pressed down upon that occupied territory known as the District of Columbia. This law allowed police to bust into any dwelling without a court order. McGovern referred to it as the Big Brother Act, pointing out that "your home is no longer your castle and your liberties are no longer your own." That was but one small foretaste of today's police state powers.

In 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed into law the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that violated the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. It set up the FISA Court, and later the FISA Court of Review, true "Star Chambers" that international law Professor Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois says "are nothing more than rubber stamps for government requests for unconstitutional surveillance on U.S. citizens."

"With the FISA Amendments Act approved by Obama," Boyle continues, "there is nothing left of the Fourth Amendment that protects 'The right of people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.' I do not understand how any self-respecting U.S. Federal Judge can serve on the FISA Court and the FISA Court of Review and actively participate in the interment of the Fourth Amendment."

According to Boyle, "After the "draconian Anti-terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act (AEDPA) passed by Congress in 1996 in reaction to the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, there was no legitimate law enforcement need for the Patriot Act." Among other things, the AEDPA drastically limited the right of inmates to appeal their death sentences.

Enactment of the Patriot Act of 2003, rushed through Congress after 9/11 and since renewed at leisure, opened the spillways of totalitarianism to flood an entire nation. "From the gagging of our nation's librarians under the national security letter statute to the gutting of time-honored surveillance laws, the Patriot Act has been disastrous for Americans' rights," said Caroline Fredrickson, Director of the ACLU's Washington office.

"In the panic following the events of 9/11, our nation's lawmakers hastily expanded the government's authority to a dangerous level and opened a Pandora's box of surveillance," she cautioned in a statement on ACLU's web site.

Amazingly, there has been scant public outcry condemning these government actions. Few Americans objected when President Obama in March, 2011, by executive order decreed Guantanamo detainees could be held indefinitely---a policy that NDAA now applies to American citizens under the NDAA.

"No president," said the ACLU, "should have the power to declare the entire globe a war zone and then seize and detain civilian terrorism suspects anywhere in the world---including within the United States---and to hold them forever without charge or trial."

"By signing this defense spending bill (NDAA), President Obama will go down in history as the president who enshrined indefinite detention without trial in US law," said Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch. "In the past, Obama has lauded the importance of being on the right side of history, but today he is definitely on the wrong side."

"This amounts to the repeal of the U.S. Constitution," Roth said, adding, "We have a Republican Party that is a Gestapo Party---to arrest American citizens and put them in concentration camps." (Author's note: NDAA could not have passed without the strong support of Democratic lawmakers.)

Roth goes on to say:

Yes, but not just any action. We need coordinated action based on and driven by an agreed-upon policy agenda:

Washington’s Totalitarian Response To Political Dissent And Economic Collapse

NDAA Is Washington’s Totalitarian Response To Political Dissent And Economic Collapse

Saman Mohammadi

January 21, 2012

“In 1789, France entered a period of revolutionary change which was to see the complete restructuring of the state, the collapse of the monarchy, and its replacement by a republic. By 1793, France was riven by civil war and factional struggles and had also opened hostilities upon several neighbouring states. At home, political dissent and economic collapse were repressed by the use of political terror. For many contemporaries, as for later historians, the connection between these events and the Enlightenment was highly problematic. How could an era which had seen so much struggle for the rational reform of society, government and the individual have ended with such turmoil and violence?” – Dorinda Outram. The Enlightenment. 1995. Cambridge University Press. Pg. 126.

“All we have to do is remember who we are. We are not Germans. We’re not peasants in China. We’re not peasants in Russia. We have a legacy and a history of fighting for liberty. Americans have always fought for liberty. And we will fight again. So we will not be the Fourth Reich. We will not let that happen. Not without a fight.” - Stewart Rhodes, founder of Oath Keepers, speaking on the Alex Jones show on January 12, 2012.

“I spent many years in countries where the military had the power to arrest and detain citizens without charge. I have been in some of these jails. I have friends and colleagues who have “disappeared” into military gulags. I know the consequences of granting sweeping and unrestricted policing power to the armed forces of any nation. And while my battle may be quixotic, it is one that has to be fought if we are to have any hope of pulling this country back from corporate fascism.” – Chris Hedges, “Why I’m Suing Barack Obama,”Truthdig, January 16, 2012.

An analysis of the passage of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) must start from the premise that since September 11, 2001, the hijacked U.S. government has been at war with America.

As they say, it’s nothing personal, it’s just business.

The American people are a big liability for the political and corporate elite who are openly hostile towards the U.S. constitution and Bill of Rights. America is dead to them because the reality is that America and all nation states no longer matter.

Western elites favour technocratic regional unions, a world fascist economy, and authoritarian policing. Towards the fulfillment of their “new world order,” they have destroyed democracy, social welfare programs, free market competition, and civil liberties.

The treasonous hijackers in Washington gained their war footing against the American people in the 1980s and 1990s, two decades which saw the privatization of the prison system, the militarization of the police, the betrayal of the American middle class, and the consolidation of the American media.

The ideological build-up of “domestic terrorism” and “international terrorism,” was also necessary to the process of the centralization of power and destruction of the U.S. constitution by Washington’s secret rulers. The false flag terror attacks in Oklahoma City and New York City were instrumental in pushing this process over legal obstacles as well as public, congressional, and bureaucratic resistance.

It can be argued that Oklahoma and New York – two cities which are poles apart from each other – were chosen by the state terrorists to emphasize that Middle America and the heart of the empire both share a deep sense of vulnerability and insecurity. It was psychological warfare at its finest. The enemy of “terrorism,” which is a total invention, was solidified as a real threat in the minds of the American people through recurrent acts of state terrorism.

The political and moral bankruptcy of Washington’s counter-terrorism policies are further unmasked when it is revealed, as the NDAA plainly does, that American citizens are the targets of counter-terrorism laws and the counter-terrorism bureaucracy.

Perpetual reaction mode is what got us here.  I agree, it must stop.
