Some say the bill WON'T allow American citizens to held indefinately but Grahamnesty, Levin, and McShamnesty all agree it does and oddly enough, they were the PRIMARY SPONSORS of it.
1. "It is not unfair to make an American citizen account for the fact that they decided to help Al Qaeda to kill us all and hold them as long as it takes to find intelligence about what may be coming next. And when they say, ‘I want my lawyer,’ you tell them, ‘Shut up. You don’t get a lawyer.'" Grahamnesty (The Gunny thinks the Founding Fathers just rolled over in their graves)
2. "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." Levin
3. McLame stated that American citizens could be declared an enemy combatant by the government and sent to Gitmo and detained indefinitely, "no matter who they are."
How's THAT for HARDCORE Leftist and RINO Progressivism for ya? Shades of Wilson and FDR sending American citizens to prison and concentration camps for exercising their First Amendment rights. Levin, McLame, and Grahmanesty are nothing but Obama's lapdogs. THANK GOD I voted for Barr. BrianR, thanks again brother.
Now the Gunny's stance for American citizens nabbed ON American soil is still unchanging. You bust em, you try em, and you fry em. THAT is what we USED to do to traitors and if you are an American citizen working for al-qaeda, etc, you're just as bad as the Rosenbergs who spied for Stalin and rode Ol Sparky for it. But they got a FAIR TRIAL under the protection of the US Constitution.
Now here are a few Amendments that this law that Obama DEMANDED apply to American citizens (we know where this is going don't we?) just as a refresher.
The Fourth Amendment prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures and also sets out the requirements for search warrants based on probable cause. (The TSA violates this one every day)
The Fifth Amendment lays out the rules for indictment by grand jury, eminent domain, and it protects the right to due process, prohibits self-incrimination and double jeopardy.
The Sixth Amendment protects the right to a fair and speedy public trial by jury. It also protects the right to be notified of the accusations, to confront one's accuser, to obtain defense witnesses and to retain a lawyer.
The Fourteenth Amendment citizenship (Obama still doesn't meet that requirement BTW), and it contains the Privileges or Immunities Clause, the Due Process Clause, the Equal Protection Clause, and deals with post-Civil War issues.
Now the Leftist Lapdog media SCREAMED like little girls that had their panties in a wad when Bush was doing this to bona fide terrorists who were NOT American citizens and NOT on American soil but they are as quiet as church mice about it now, almost like how the German papers and news outlets were as Hitler came to power.
"This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector." Plato
"A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference." Thomas Jefferson
And now we have a whole lot of tyrants inside the Beltway. 537 of them, not counting the activist judges or the four idiots in the Supreme Court.
Next step, is the "Reichstag incident" which will happen shortly before the election, which is why Obammy could care less about his numbers being in the toilet.
Oddly enough, guns and ammo are the #1 sellers this Christmas season and the Gunny doesn't have to wonder why.
When The Ballerina Emanuel said, "Never let a good crisis go to waste," his master Barack Hussein Obama MMM! MMM! MMM! and his minions decided to use the threat of terrorism in order to eliminate as many of OUR Constitutionally guaranteed rights and freedoms, in order to form a more tyrannical government, Of the Elites, By the Elites, and For the Elites.
How long before King Obama uses the internet "kill" switch?
For some reason, the words to the New Socialist Motherland, The USSA, keep going through the Gunny's head, sung to the lovely melody of the Soviet anthem...
"All hail the Messiah,
The Path to the New
Our savior Our Savior
The Leader more famous than
Bow down and praise the Won..."
SAVED ROUND: Obama objection to the bill was simply that Congress was tying his hands on WHO should go into military detention, be denied a trial, who would interrogate them, etc. Obama insisted that those were HIS decisions to make. So as long as The Won was deciding, he did not care if the law was wrong, unconstitutional, whatever. It is just ALL ABOUT HIS POWER.
SAVED ROUND II: DEMOCRATS declared ANTI SEMETIC. Gee, does that mean American Jews will FINALLY realize that the Liberals ARE AGAINST THEM and always HAVE BEEN?
