NDAA Passed - You Better Watch Out, You Better Nor Cry, and That is No Joke....

NDAA Passed - You Better Watch Out, You Better Nor Cry, and That is No Joke....

You better watch out, you better not cry (to loud), you better be good and I'm telling why, the grim face of totalitarianism is emerging in the National Defense Authorization Act(NDAA) passed by both Congress and the Senate.
Socialism, forget it. Totalitarianism is raising it's ugly head with the passage, without even a whimper by anyone, of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Previously reported by this reporter, the bill is the last mile post on America's sad, slippery, and well worn road to a dictatorship.
To say that we have been headed that way for some time is an understatement; but with a little help from Congress, we'll arrive there shortly, putting an ugly end to the American Dream and experiment. The Senate December 1st passed the bill by a vote of 93-7.

In the name of "defense," NDAA underwrites $662-billion for continued U.S. aggression in our many foreign wars while, on the domestic front, it incinerates the last surviving shreds of the Bill of Rights.

In an interpretation by the American Civil Liberties Union(ACLU): it authorizes presidents "to order the military to pick up and imprison people, including U.S. citizens, without charging them or putting them on trial." So much for Amendment VI to our Constitution that "the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial."

Just destroying your protection against arbitrary arrest and imprisonment means the bill's authors Senators Carl Levin of Michigan and John McCain of Arizona don't have to bother with junking anything else. Once you're imprisoned you won't need any other "stinkin' rights."

The ACLU charges the provisions of NDAA "were negotiated by a small group of members of Congress, in secret, and without proper congressional review (and), are inconsistent with fundamental American values embodied in the Constitution....(our) fundamental freedoms are on the line."
Even Jimmy Carter denounced the Patriot Act for authorizing federal agents "to search people's homes and businesses secretly, to confiscate property without any deadline or without giving notice that the intrusion had taken place, and to collect without notice personal information on American citizens including their medical histories, books checked out of libraries, and goods they purchase." The NDAA far exceeds that.
"What the American People are witnessing now with this new legislation is the further development of an American Police State into a Military Dictatorship, a process that was started by the so-called USA Patriot Act in 2001," says Professor Francis Boyle, the constitutional law authority at the University of Illinois, Champaign.
"If it is enacted into law, America will lose all pretense of having our Military subjected to the control of democratically elected civilian leaders as originally envisioned and required by the Constitution. Our experiment in 1776 will have failed," adds Boyle, author of "Tackling America's Toughest Questions"(Clarity Press.)

President Obama is already exercising his kingly right to rain Hellfire missiles from drone assault planes down on any human being anywhere on the planet without a legal authorization. This is called assassination, as it is utterly devoid of any semblance of rudimentary justice. Unfortunately, the president appears to have no qualms about his actions. Will such a man hesitate to arrest Americans on suspicion and imprison them for years, or worse, without trial?

Whether I answer that question, or you, we have less rights today than we did on 30 Nov 2011. Merry Christmas to you and your family. I wonder if saying this is still legal. We sure don't want the Supreme Court to answer that one do we?
