Freedom is NOT a joke!

A few months back, the group known as Anonymous posted a video called "Message to the American people." Many took it as a creepy joke, they watched it and laughed, thinking this group is crazy! However, the NDAA (The National Defense Authorization Act) Is quite real, and very scary!  

According to Section 1021 of the 2012 NDAA repeals the doctrine of Posse Comitatus by allowing the military to exercise a policing function within the United States. It authorizes the President to designate as an 'enemy combatant' any U.S. Citizen or legal alien the President determines supports al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or any other terrorist forces. Section 1021 is unclear and it is subject to abuse, because is applies to vague 'substantial support' for undefined 'associated forces'

This also gives the President authorization to dispose of such citizen and legal alien 'enemy combatants' according to the Law of War, including:

  • Indefinite detention without charge, or trail until the end of hostilities 
  • Prosecution through military commission or
  • Transfer to a foreign country or foreign entity. 
The NDAA for fiscal year 2012 was signed into United States Law on December 31, 2011 By President Barack Obama. The Act authorizes $662 billion  in funding, among other things "for the defense of the United States and its interests abroad." In a signing statement, President Obama described the Act as addressing national security programs, Department of Defense health care costs, counter-terrorism within the U.S. and abroad, and military modernization. The Act also imposes new economic sanctions against Iran (section 1045), commissions reviews of the military capabilities of countries such as IranChina, and Russia, and refocuses the strategic goals of NATO towards energy security.

Forbes quoted President Obama saying; “The fact that I support this bill as a whole does not mean I agree with everything in it, I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation and prosecution of suspected terrorists.”

So, Mr. President, if you don't agree with everything in the bill, then why sign it?

Overall, the National Defense Authorization Act, is Unconstitutional, Our Founding Fathers, drafted the Constitution, to make sure we continued to be One Nation Under God, With LIBERTY and JUSTICE for ALL!!
