But as for me and my house ...
Prolonged detention, detaining an American citizen without being charged with a crime, is not legal according to the U.S. Bill of Rights.
A Constitutional lawyer should know this, but that didn't prevent Barack Obama in 2009 from declaring he would fight terrorism with 'prolonged detention' (@ 5:13) by "reshaping the standards that apply" (@ 4:32). What standards?!? Will these 'standards' be broadened to include those like me, who reveal what this 'regime' in the White House is doing? Those who do the job the majority of media has abandoned?
Barack Hussein Obama has constructed the "regime" (@ 5:35) of which he speaks in this video, but it can never be "legal".
Any threat of creating a 'regime' must be terminated, as it is un-Constitutional. The checks and balances of the Constitution must be side-stepped via Executive Order to develop the 'regime' promised in this video.
The campaign promise to close Guantanamo Bay? Not only did he not follow through, more detention camps have been added in this country for those who "pose a threat to the United States". (@ 2:30)
December 31, 2011, the president signed into law H.R. 1540, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012. Despite Obama's claim that, “My administration will not authorize the indefinite detention without trial of American citizens. Indeed, I believe that doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a nation.” [Traditions??? What about the Constitution!] And,"My Administration will interpret section 1021 in a manner that ensures that any detention it authorizes complies with the Constitution, the laws of war, and all other applicable law." Really? How can we trust you Mister President? You have shown total disregard for the U.S. Constitution repeatedly; and, now you are once again working with the UN to remove another Constitutional right - to possess guns.
Ah-hah! Here's the proof the president didn't change his mind since this report by Maddow:
"I have concluded that section 1022 provides the minimally acceptable amount of flexibility to protect national security. Specifically, I have signed this bill on the understanding that section 1022 provides the executive branch with broad authority to determine how best to implement it, and with the full and unencumbered ability to waive any military custody requirement, including the option of waiving appropriate categories of cases when doing so is in the national security interests of the United States."
As Rachel Maddow summarizes: Obama promised a whole new system outside the purview of U.S. courts and "even outside the military commissions" to indefinitely detain people (not terrorists or prisoners of war, enemy combatants, etc.) who haven't committed a crime (begin at 5:46).
A dedicated liberal, Maddow's consternation at Obama's pronouncement of his plan for indefinite detention is noteworthy, even stating that it is "one of the most radical proposals for defying the Constitution that we have ever heard made to the American people."
I posted this video before, but in case you missed it, here it is again.
The president issued many un-Constitutional Executive Orders his the first term without any Congressional action. With the president, still in the early days of his second term with no re-election, implement the NDAA 2012 law against U.S. citizens? He have been given flexibility, broad authority, and unencumbered ability to do so.
Welcome to the United Socialist States of America. Soon to be part of the new world order.
