So, in the past post I talked about how the US and Russia could soon engage in a nuclear war and how everything was going to suck from that day on. I also mentioned a little something called “The National Defense Authorization Act” and I believe I posted an OLD LINK about it too. But since that link is old as balls I decided to expand on it here.
Now, why am I and a whole bunch of people making such a big deal out of this National Defense Authorization Act? It could be the fact that the debate to approve it lasted only 10 minutes or that it was held at midnight. Or perhaps the fact that the National Defense Authorization Act enables the government to lock up anyone suspected of terrorism for life without trial OR attorney. Please notice the words “suspected” and “without trial”. What is this? Stalinist Russia!? Are they going to send us to concentration camps in Siberia now? F***ing really!?
And you know what the worst part is? No one even knows or cares about it because the mainstream media is not talking about it!!
Hit the break for the “In crony-capitalist America you get life in jail!!”
The broadcast media’s ignorance and unwillingness to cover the National Defense Authorization Act, a radical piece of legislation which outrageously redefines the US homeland as a “battlefield” and makes US citizens subject to military apprehension and detainment for life without access to a trial or attorney, is unacceptable.
Call it what you will: a military junta, a secret invalidation of Americans’ civil rights, a Congress gone mad. Whatever it is, it needs to be covered by the press, and quickly.
Bloggers and the ACLU’s analysis have already made the work easy for you guys. Even an ADD segment producer can do the math:
- Pay special attention to Section 1031 of the bill.
- This bill violates the Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C. § 1385), as it will allow federal military personnel to engage in domestic law enforcement. This is profoundly unconstitutional and scary.
- Also read Sen. Lindsey Graham’s chilling defense of the offending provision in this bill, calling to make the homeland a “battlefield.” Has anyone told these guys that Osama bin Laden and his deputies are dead? Those still alive are running from drone strikes on a daily basis. So who exactly are we fighting against? Are you protecting us from a handful of (almost entirely peaceful) college kids at the Occupy protests? If so, martial law and throwing out 200+ years of basic civil rights seems rather excessive.
- Finally, as the ACLU points out, you won’t have any trouble booking an expert talking head who will tell you how dangerous and counterproductive the National Defense Authorization Act is: “The Secretary of Defense, the Director of National Intelligence, the Director of the FBI and the head of the Justice Department’s National Security Division have all said that the indefinite detention provisions in the NDAA are harmful and counterproductive.” Book one of them on your program, and do it quickly. The Senate has already rejected an amendment which would have banned the indefinite detention provisions from the bill.
Please, do your jobs. This is the kind of story that wins journalism awards and makes careers. It’s the kind of story that makes viewers trust you.
Well, there you have it, Folks. Let everyone know about this. Share this story with everybody! ‘Cause you could be the one whose ass will be dragged to Guantanamo! NO ONE IS SAFE!!!!!
The worst thing about a nanny/police state is that it quickly becomes a witch hunt. People who don’t like you accuses you of witchcraft and you get burned on the stake. Or rather, in this case: People who don’t like you accuses you of terrorism and you spend the rest of your life in the big house. And since you don’t get to have a trial or an attorney, BAZAM!! You are effectively fornicated. This is why you should vote NO on these fakakta laws/bills.
