Treason From Within: The Road towards a Police State in America

by Dr. Andrew Bosworth

Preparing for the Final Takedown?

There is a shocking piece of legislation working its way through Congress. A Defense Authorization bill for 2012 allows for military detentions of American citizens on American soil. These can be indefinite detentions, with no trial.

The American Civil Liberties Union statement (more of an alert) on November 23, 2011 deserves special attention:

 

“The U.S. Senate is considering the unthinkable: changing detention laws to imprison people — including Americans living in the United States itself — indefinitely and without charge.”

“The Defense Authorization bill — a “must-pass” piece of legislation — is headed to the Senate floor with troubling provisions that would give the President — and all future presidents — the authority to indefinitely imprison people, without charge or trial, both abroad and inside the United States.”

“If enacted, sections 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA would:

1)  Explicitly authorize the federal government to indefinitely imprison without charge or trial American citizens and others picked up inside and outside the United States;

(2)  Mandate military detention of some civilians who would otherwise be outside of military control, including civilians picked up within the United States itself; and

(3)  Transfer to the Department of Defense core prosecutorial, investigative, law enforcement, penal, and custodial authority and responsibility now held by the Department of Justice.”

“The bill was drafted in secret by Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) and passed in a closed-door committee meeting, without even a single hearing.”

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is the nation’s oldest organization of its kind, emerging from the American Union Against Militarism, which opposed the US entry into World War I in 1917.

Without endorsing everything the ACLU has done, it is possible to recognize this organization as careful. It is not prone to wild exaggeration.

Fortunately, there is some resistance to the NDAA for 2012 bill, to this Department of Defense power grab, including by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif), the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), the chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

In fact, Sen. Feinstein appeared quite alarmed:

“I will stop reading here, but again, I want to emphasize this point. We are talking about the indefinite detention of American citizens without charge or trial. We have not done this at least since World War II when we incarcerated Japanese Americans. This is a very serious thing we are doing. People should understand its impact.”

The White House is not enthusiastic about the present wording of the two controversial sections of the bill.

In a Statement of Administration Policy (November 17, 2011), the administration objected to two main items:

1) that the bill mandates the military detention of covered persons (restraining the Justice Department’s hand) and

2) that the detention provisions can cover American citizens within the United States.

Obviously, if the President is put in the position of having to sign a bill with such a provision (indefinite detention for Americans), it would spark bottomless outrage from from both Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party.

Even mainstream, apolitical Americans would be concerned about such a provision that, on its face, is unconstitutional. Ordinary Americans are already waking up to the specter of tyranny, and the NDAA for 2012 would accelerate that process.

    Arizona had better blast that incompetent McCain.
    Why was it drafted in secret ?
    Although I distrust the present DOJ, I cannot condone essentially Martial Law tactics upon possibly innocent citizens.
    This could be however a divisive tactic to force OB’s hand.
    At this point, who the hell knows what goes on in Washington ?

    • It’s no surprise to me that the globalist McCain was a co-author of this bill. He’s doing his part to help dismantle the Constitution. This bill is another nail in the coffin.

      As we’ve seen so often recently, it was probably drafted in secret so the legislation could be pushed through before anyone had adequate time to analyze/oppose it.

    I was startled to learn that Senator Levin is sponsoring this bill. Thank you for the information; as one of his constituents I will ask for an explanation and express my outrage as no explanation could justify indefinite detention of Americans without due process.

      What a great representative he is. Shows just how much he really cares about his constituents. I’m actually surprised that Fienstein is leading the opposition to this legislation. She probably has some ulterior motive.

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.
