In a stunning move that has civil libertarians stuttering with disbelief, the U.S. Senate has just passed a bill that effectively ends the Bill of Rights in America and will turn USA into a battleground.

Text: Mike Adams | Also watch this video: The US Constitution is gone 

The National Defense Authorization Act is being called the most traitorous act ever witnessed in the Senate, and the language of the bill is cleverly designed to make you think it doesn’t apply to Americans, but toward the end of the bill it essentially says it can apply to Americans “if we want it to.”

Bill Summary & Status, 112th Congress (2011 – 2012) | S.1867 | Latest Title: National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 | Sponsor: Sen Levin, Carl [MI] (introduced 11/15/2011) | Related Bills: H.R.1540 | Latest Major Action: 12/1/2011 Passed/agreed to in Senate. | Status: Passed Senate with amendments by Yea-Nay. 93 – 7. | Record Vote Number: 218. | Latest Action: 12/1/2011 National Defense Authorization Act | Amendment details


This bill, passed late last night in a 93-7 vote, declares the entire USA to be a “battleground” upon which U.S. military forces can operate with impunity, overriding Posse Comitatus and granting the military the unchecked power to arrest, detain, interrogate and even assassinate U.S. citizens with impunity.

Even WIRED magazine was outraged at this bill, reporting:

Senate Wants the Military to Lock You Up Without Trial
…the detention mandate to use indefinite military detention in terrorism cases isn’t limited to foreigners. It’s confusing, because two different sections of the bill seem to contradict each other, but in the judgment of the University of Texas’ Robert Chesney — a nonpartisan authority on military detention — “U.S. citizens are included in the grant of detention authority.” Source

The passage of this law is nothing less than an outright declaration of WAR against the American People by the military-connected power elite. If this is signed into law, it will shred the remaining tenants of the Bill of Rights and unleash upon America a total military dictatorship, complete with secret arrests, secret prisons, unlawful interrogations, indefinite detainment without ever being charged with a crime, the torture of Americans and even the “legitimate assassination” of U.S. citizens on right here on American soil!

If you have not yet woken up to the reality of the police state we’ve been warning you about, I hope you realize we are fast running out of time. Once this becomes law, you have no rights whatsoever in America — no due process, no First Amendment speech rights, no right to remain silent, nothing.

Neither of my Senators voted dishonorably on 1031 or 1032. Also, note; our bill of rights are exerted; they are not asked for. Message to my Senator that was sent to the Senators office: 11/24/11

Honorably oppose and vote no on section 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA. If enacted, sections 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA would:

1) Explicitly authorize the federal government to indefinitely imprison without charge or trial American citizens and others picked up inside and outside the United States;

(2) Mandate military detention of some civilians who would otherwise be outside of military control, including civilians picked up within the United States itself; and

(3) Transfer to the Department of Defense core prosecutorial, investigative, law enforcement, penal, and custodial authority and responsibility now held by the Department of Justice.

There is no amount of double talk that one can do anymore; if we are a public servant in any capacity, we will hold you accountable for breaches of our constitution. This is a clear breach of our social contract with the government. We are giving a clear message: You can not use the courts and police to suppress political change. In other words, some may be asking you to
Vote no and appose sections 1031 and 1032 of NDAA; however, we are telling you this is unconstitutional and we don’t approve of it. If you vote yes; then, that is a dereliction of public office and you are not serving and protecting the constitution; therefore, we have right to take away all your position and authority. And will. Be not in any illusions, the military will not back the government on this, the citizens will not back the government on this; therefore, politically, you will be where 9 guys in black robes where when Former President Andrew Jackson told them to enforce there judgement. We are unstoppable. Join or loss.

I agree with Kathryn that an accurate reading of the bill to include actual statement of fact supporting this article’s interpretation of events is a prerequisite to accepting the assertions made as possibilities even more so as intended societal or political direction in the U.S. Yes, I too am a member of the 99% and am very aware of the designs of the 1%. But I cede the Conservative minority who would have the U.S. move towards some kind of elite fascist rule no special ability to cloud our minds and steal our heritage as sausage makers of choice. Occupy Wall Street says we are awake, aware, and watching. Action will happen if necessary, but I fear crying wolf too soon and without purpose will dissipate this awareness. Yes, there is an SS or some such elitist thing moving it’s eye, but to hell with the irrelevant musings of distant voices who don’t feel and can’t understand the tides of individual and organizational will and culture perspectives shaping the future of this United States of America, still the greatest and most envied society on the planet Earth.

Guess what? Since leaving the country, I have four houses for my family to live in should they see the light as well. Suck it.

Here is the text of 1031:

(a) IN GENERAL.—Congress affirms that the authority of the President to use all necessary and appropriate force pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107–40) includes the authority for the Armed Forces of the United States to detain covered persons (as defined in subsection (b)) pending disposition under the law of war.

And section 1032, subsection (b)(1):

The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.

subsection (b)(2):

The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to a lawful resident alien of the United States on the basis of conduct taking place within the United States, except to the extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States.

Wow… this article is bogus. If the author wouldn’t mind pointing out the explicit text in the bill that gives the military the right to legally assassinate citizens “if they want to” that would be great. Show us one piece of text that comes from the bill that implies such monstrosities. Good luck finding that by the way.

A quick scan of the document shows that the word “battleground” is never used in this bill. So this would appear to be sensationalism at it’s finest. You also forgot a couple words from the title of the Bill, it’s actually “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012.” It’s a budget bill.

I just stumbled onto something quite troubling. Since when does the American government hide it’s activities from the press?

“”The Fine Print:

Parts of the conference may be filmed by authorized personnel.
No members of the press are permitted.
There will be no on-site registration.

I don’t know, I think that this might be being misrepresented. I have not read all 682 pages of the bill but have scoured for some legalease verbiage and about half way through the bill the following appears:

Page – 362
15 (b) APPLICABILITY TO UNITED STATES CITIZENS
16 AND LAWFUL RESIDENT ALIENS.—
17 (1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS.—The require-
18 ment to detain a person in military custody under
19 this section does not extend to citizens of the United
20 States.
21 (2) LAWFUL RESIDENT ALIENS.—The require-
22 ment to detain a person in military custody under
23 this section does not extend to a lawful resident
24 alien of the United States on the basis of conduct
25 taking place within the United States, except to the

Page – 363
1 extent permitted by the Constitution of the United
2 States.

I hope I am not wrong about this but perhaps we should all (including myself) read it befor contributing to a mass hysteria situation; allowing thoes that opose the freedoms of American Citizens to lable us moronic and not inteligent enough to understand what they are trying to “Do For Us”. Do to us… Is probably more accurate; none-the-less I don’t want anyone doing anything for me, Except prevent forigne invaders from attacking American holdings and ensuring access and availabilty of infrastructure.
