Yes, soon to be Lame Duck Obama, just to heap some more shit upon your "Legacy", go ahead and start wittling away at our second Amendment Rights- What with extending the Patriot Act and giving us the "Black Bag"/Repeal The Posse Comitatus Act of the NDAA this is right in step with your Totalitarian dream for America-
The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
The National Defense Authorization Act would allow "the U.S. Military to arrest American citizens in their own back yard without charge or trial."
The Posse Comitatus Act
The adoption of the “National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), HR 1540) is tantamount to the militarization of law enforcement, the repeal of the Posse Comitatus Act and the Inauguration in 2012 of Police State USA.
As in the Weimar Republic in Germany in the 1930s, fundamental rights and freedoms are repealed under the pretext that democracy is threatened and must be protected.
Domestic radical groups and labor activists constitute in the eyes of the Obama administration a threat to the established economic and political order.
The media is complicit in the demise of constitutional government.
All the components of Police State USA are currently in place. They go far beyond government snooping of emails and telephone conversations.
Extrajudicial assassinations of alleged terrorists including US citizens, in blatant violation of the Fifth amendment “No person shall. .. be deprived of life. .. without due process of law.”
The indefinite detention of US citizens without trial, namely the repeal of Habeas Corpus.
The establishment of “Internment Camps” on US Military Bases under legislation adopted in 2009 .
Under the National Emergency Centers Establishment Act (HR 645) the “Internment Camps”. can be used to “meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security.”
The FEMA internment camps are part of the Continuity of Government (COG), which would be put in place in the case of martial law. The internment camps are intended to “protect the government” against its citizens, by locking up protesters as well as political activists who might challenge the legitimacy of the Administration’s national security, economic or military agenda.
The fact of the matter is that both the Executive and the US Congress are complicit in the drafting of Subtitle D. In this regard, Senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.) revealed that it was the White House which had asked the Senate Armed Services Committee “to remove language from the bill that would have prohibited U.S. citizens’ military detention without due process”
Obama justifies the signing of the NDAA as a means to combating terrorism, as part of a “counter-terrorism” agenda. But in substance, any American opposed to the policies of the US government can –under the provisions of the NDAA– be labelled a “suspected terrorist” and arrested under military detention.
Already in 2004, Homeland Security defined several categories of potential “conspirators” or “suspected terrorists” including “foreign [Islamic] terrorists”, “domestic radical groups”, [antiwar and civil rights groups], “disgruntled employees” [labor and union activists] and “state sponsored adversaries” ["rogue states", "unstable nations"]. The unspoken objective in an era of war and social crisis is to repress all forms of domestic protest and dissent.
This New Year’s Eve December 31, 2011 signing of the NDAA will indelibly go down as a landmark in American history. Barack Obama will go down in history as “the president who killed Constitutional democracy” in the United States.
*Violent Revolution is the last thing I would want- The very thought of it makes my skin crawl-But, I can't help but notice A pattern developing in this land- all resulting from the mysterious and highly questionable events of 9-11- Yea, that happening that Bush refused to Investigate until some housewives in New Jersey forced the matter- Then Bush and Cheney refused to swear under oath or be questioned separately- The Investigation, minus one Henry Kissinger turned out to be A half-assed laughable cruel JOKE- No one else within this Government has had the balls to reopen the investigation-
The Patriot Act was drawn up far in advance of this "surprise attack"- NDAA was soon to follow-
It goes on and on-The fact is I flat assed do not trust the Government within this Government- Now just why would they want to begin to disarm us? does that question enter anyone's mind- After all, they have quite an Army now, rapidly becoming A private Army that owes no allegiance to the American People or what is left of our Constitution-
Is taking away our guns the last step towards totalitarianism? They already record all of our conversations and have the means to disappear any leader brave enough to expose them or stand up to them- Anyone remember Paul Wellstone?
And what about our Media-Yes our Lying, manipulative Psyops Media-
Why on Earth would anyone want to remain armed or question handing over your personal protection to A Government that lets you get fleeced by Wall Street and the FED-
A Government that is just fine with millions of homeless while there are 28 empty homes rotting away for each and everyone of them-
A Government that turns it's back on the healthcare of Millions and lets 40,000 people A year senselessly die without basic health care? That's more than the number killed by all guns here in the good ole USA by the way-
Let me ask you this:
who has the most bargaining power- 100,000,000 unarmed Americans pleading for their freedom to an Adolf Hitler Koch type- or
100,000,000 Armed Americans saying they are sick and tired of the bullshit and aren't going to take it any longer- It CAN happen here, but only if we allow it....
