EXCERPT

January 4, 2012

“My Administration has consistently opposed such measures. Ultimately, I decided to sign this bill not only because of the critically important services it provides for our forces and their families and the national security programs it authorizes, but also because the Congress revised provisions that otherwise would have jeopardized the safety, security, and liberty of the American people. Moving forward, my Administration will interpret and implement the provisions described in a manner that best preserves the flexibility on which our safety depends and upholds the values on which this country was founded.”
The president went onto say that the provisions in question – specifically Sect. 1021, which he said merely “affirms the executive branch’s authority to detain persons covered by the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force.” He describes the provision as “unnecessary.”

 

President Obama stated: “Two critical limitations in section 1021 confirm that it solely codifies established authorities. First, under section 1021(d), the bill does not limit or expand the authority of the President or the scope of the Authorization for Use of Military Force. Second, under section 1021(e), the bill may not be construed to affect any existing law or authorities relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States, or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.”

 

In other words, the president is using Washingtonspeak to say he already had the authority to do what the NDAA law merely “codifies.” So the danger that many Americans, lawmakers and advocacy groups are concerned about is why this president claimed the authority to kill an American citizen in... who had not actually carried out any terrorist attacks against the U.S., but was only suspectedof wrongdoing.

Only when the food stops flowing, the gas pumps are full of dust and the mass hypno-psychosis of main stream media grinds to a halt, will the majority stand up.

As long as there is beer in the fridge, brain scrambling signals via the TV and the engine is running...mainstream America is hunky dory.

Now, it is time to be quiet....the football playoffs are soon to begin...

I am about ready to cram "....a document that lists negative liberties!" up the asshole of that piece of crap Communist Dictator!

I predict that if the federal gov't does not stop the bullshit they are trying to cram down the public's throat, that the American people are going to rise up and forcibly clean house in Washington! And, when that happens, I will be right there supportig the hanging of EVERY single one of those pukes.

Join your local militia, store food and water, stockpile Ammo and Weapons, and GET READY for the RESTORATION!

In the Spirit of Liberty,
