    I have been trying to come up with some fitting words for this anniversary of Peal Harbor.

    I can not come up with any better than these from a Pear Harbor survivor.

    “Freedom is never free, It looks like it never will be”

    Sections 1031 thru 1047 do not belong in an appropriations bill. They grant new powers to the Pres/DOD and address legal rights of “unpriviledged enemy belligerents” subject to arrest or currently detained.
    Section 1245 is equally dangerous! It allows sanctions to be imposed on Iran and it’s central bank. It gives powers to the Pres to carry out foreign policy up to and including the seizing of monies from national and international entities determined to have financial interests in Iran, and allows for broader powers to be used to sanction the purchase of Iranian oil by foreign interests if the Pres deems others sources to be readily available, at a comparable price. The report used to base such a sweeping squeeze on global oil markets (by way of limiting the activities of central banks across the globe) was published only ten days before this policy was written into this appropriations bill. Can this be our best response? Shouldn’t such a policy be open to debate before enactment?

    I am thoroughly scared at this point….
    If they are given the ability to arrest ANYONE suspected of terrorism, with out fair trial, things are going to get ugly… Plus, there is a reason they are now making FEMA camps available for use…. It’s the end of our beautiful country… it’s the end, and it’s coming fast…

    What were these people thinking? Could they actually be so naive as to think that legislation such as this would never be used against the people of this country? Tea Party members have already been referred to as “right-wing terrorists” by the administration. If the government declares you a “terrorist” then this bill applies to you. Am I missing something?

    “Lindsey Graham, R-SC, stated that the ’battlefield has been extended to U.S. soil.” found on: http://www.examiner.com/conservative-in-national/detainee-bill-raises-serious-constitutional-questions

    Does this mean that this bill makes all U.S. military personnel Federal tax exempt whether or not they are deployed overseas?

    I also want to know if food canning and keeping food in your freezer is still legal with this bill.

    You can’t trust the mass media on this bill. They’ve all been lying about it. Read the official government summary and if you have questions on a section you need to check it out. All of the mass media that doesn’t show their quotes and sources have betrayed this country. Don’t fall for them the way I did on this one.

  • A defense authorization bill in 2005 (HR 1268) gave us unconstitutional REAL ID. With over 1,100 pages this one has now been exposed as also doing negative things to our liberty. The House must strike the necessary portions.

    Here is a must-read article on the NDAA:

    I hope that those nasty unconstitutional provisions in this bill are challenged in court and removed ASAP.

    There’s still a chance to fix this!

    Help eliminate indefinite detention and restore due process by contacting your representatives and urge them to support the bill H.R.3676.

    H.R.3676 is a one page bill that in clear, unambiguous language amends the detainee provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 to specifically state that United States citizens may not be detained against their will without all the rights of due process afforded to citizens in a court ordained or established by or under Article III of the Constitution of the United States.

    Thanks to you, actually me, not a legal scholar, but it does look to me like this most recent make of the bill does exclude US citizens and even lawful foreign residents from the military detainment. The only sites I can find that talk about that though consistently couch the subject in their own pet conspiracy theories, and I haven’t been able to find a truly plain, basic look at this. if there is no judicial review, then definitions don’t matter., because we need follow so many instructions, crystal awards
