NDAA 2013: Drones, Permanent War And Indefinite Detention Without Charge Or Trial For American Citizens On American Soil

NDAA 2013

While mainstream media keeps the Sheeple distracted with Christmas classics and inconsistent reporting about killings in Connecticut, Amerika’s corporate fascist puppet Congress quietly hacks away at habeus corpus.

“In recent decades we have lost sight of the historic achievement that empowered the individual. The religious, legal and political roots of this great achievement are no longer reverently taught in high schools, colleges and universities or respected by our government. The voices that reach us through the millennia and connect us to our culture are being silenced by ‘political correctness’ and ‘the war on terror.’ Prayer has been driven from schools and Christian religious symbols from public life. Constitutional protections have been diminished by hegemonic political ambitions. Indefinite detention, torture, and murder are now acknowledged practices of the United States government. The historic achievement of due process has been rolled back. Tyranny has re-emerged.”–Paul Craig Roberts

“Over the past two years, the Obama administration has been secretly developing a new blueprint for pursuing terrorists, a next-generation targeting list called the ‘disposition matrix’… Although the matrix is a work in progress, the effort to create it reflects a reality setting in among the nation’s counterterrorism ranks: The United States’ conventional wars are winding down, but the government expects to continue adding names to kill or capture lists for years… The Obama administration has touted its successes against the terrorist network, formally acknowledging for the first time the United States’ use of armed drones. Less visible is the extent to which Obama has institutionalized the highly classified practice of targeted killing, transforming ad-hoc elements into a counterterrorism infrastructure capable of sustaining a seemingly PERMANENT WAR.”–Greg Miller

“[T]he legal foundation for U.S. counterterrorism strategy is partially based on “the Congressional authorization to use military force” (AUMF) that was passed after 9/11… Specifically it seems to be based on an interpretation of the AUMF that was “reaffirmed” by the indefinite detention clause of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)… This explains why Obama is fighting so hard to keep the indefinite detention clause in effect… In court the government argued that the indefinite detention clause is simply a “reaffirmation” of the Authorization Use Of Military Force (AUMF), which gives the president authority “to use all necessary and appropriate force against those … [who] aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001 or harbored such organizations or persons.” In the NDAA lawsuit, the government argued that the NDAA §1021 is simply an ‘affirmation’ or ‘reaffirmation’ of the AUMF… But the NDAA adds language to the AUMF when it says ‘The President also has the authority to detain persons who were part of or substantially supported, Taliban or al-Qaida forces or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, INCLUDING ANY PERSON WHO HAS COMMITTED A BELLIGERENT ACT, or has directly supported hostilities, in the aid of such enemy forces.’ That extra part is what Judge Katherine Forrest ruled unconstitutionally vague.”–Michael Kelley

“It may seem like imprisoning an American citizen without charges or trial transgresses against the United States Constitution and basic norms of Western justice dating back to the Magna Carta… It may seem like reiterating the right to due process contained in the 5th Amendment would be uncontroversial… It may seem like a United States senator would be widely ridiculed for suggesting that American citizens can be imprisoned indefinitely without chargers or trial, and that if numerous U.S. senators took that position, the press would treat the issue with at least as much urgency as “the fiscal cliff” or the possibility of a new assault weapons bill or likely nominees for Cabinet posts… It may seem like the American citizens who vocally fret about the importance of adhering to the text of the Constitution would object as loudly as anyone to the prospect of indefinite detention… But it isn’t so.”–Conor Friedersdorf

“Lawmakers charged with merging the House and Senate versions of the National Defense Authorization Act decided on Tuesday to drop a provision that would have explicitly barred the military from holding American citizens and permanent residents in indefinite detention without trial as terrorism suspects, according to Congressional staff members familiar with the negotiations.”–Charlie Savage

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/19/us/politics/congressional-committee-is-said-to-drop-ban-on-indefinite-detention-of-citizens.html

“Over the past year I and other plaintiffs including Noam Chomsky and Daniel Ellsberg have pressed a lawsuit in the federal courts to nullify Section 1021(b)(2) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). This egregious section, which permits the government to use the military to detain U.S. citizens, strip them of due process and hold them indefinitely in military detention centers, could have been easily fixed by Congress. The Senate and House had the opportunity this month to include in the 2013 version of the NDAA an unequivocal statement that all U.S. citizens would be exempt from 1021(b)(2), leaving the section to apply only to foreigners. But restoring due process for citizens was something the Republicans and the Democrats, along with the White House, refused to do. The fate of some of our most basic and important rights—ones enshrined in the Bill of Rights as well as the Fourth and Fifth amendments of the Constitution—will be decided in the next few months in the courts. If the courts fail us, a gulag state will be cemented into place.”–Chris Hedges

Gun Control? Let’s Make That Weapons Control.

Obama Drones Guns Newtown

After the tragedy in Newtown CT, our fascist-controlled corporate media has the mush-minded American Sheeple once again demanding they be allowed to trade liberty for security in the form of more domestic gun control.

Well why just guns? And why just domestically?

Like Dubya before him, around the globe our fascist puppet president and Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama kills innocent children and other people falsely counted as “militants” every time he fires drones at so-called “terrorists”.

Does he cry then? Do you?

Gun control? Let’s make that weapons control. And let’s start by disarming our war-mongering corporate fascist police state and defanging our out-of-control military/intelligence/security serpent before we disarm ourselves.

NDAA 2012 Update: Odrona Demands Dismissal Of Section 1021 Injunction

Odrona The Indefinite Detainer NDAA

Corporate puppet and wannabe fascist dictator Barack Obama aka Bushbama aka Bushbamney wants to keep the power to make you disappear asserted in AUMF 2001.

NDAA 2012 UPDATE: ODRONA DEMANDS DISMISSAL OF SECTION 1021 INJUNCTION

“Dissent without civil disobedience is consent.”-Henry David Thoreau

In the case of Christopher Hedges et al v. Barack Obama et al (Case 1:12-cv-00331-KBF) the fascist regime of corporate puppet president Barack Bushbamney Odrona just filed its brief in opposition to a permanent injunction against the indefinite detention of American citizens without charge or trial provisions of Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA 2012|Public Law 112–81), which passed both houses of Congress with broad bipartisan – as in both Democratic and Republican – support before being signed into law by Obama last New Year’s Eve while you were out celebrating and he was in Hawaii and a safe distance away from the protest you never made. Their Preliminary Statement reads as follows:

)(

Defendants Barack Obama,Leon Panetta, and the Department of Defense (collectively, the “government”) respectfully submit this memorandum in opposition to plaintiffs’ request for a permanent injunction against the operation of a portion of section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, Pub. L. 112-81, 125 Stat. 1298 (Dec. 31, 2011) (the “NDAA”), and in support of the government’s request that the Court enter final judgment in its favor.

Plaintiffs present a truly extraordinary claim in this action. They seek to enjoin the operation of a statute enacted by Congress and signed into law by the President, a statute that codifies a longstanding Executive military-detention authority that has been upheld by the courts, and therefore enjoys the endorsement of all three branches of the government. While that alone would be an ambitious endeavor, plaintiffs reach even further, and claim that they, as journalists and activists, may obtain an injunction to invalidate the statute on its face, to apply worldwide, and, most unusually, to prohibit certain uses of the military detention authority exercised by the United States and the Commander-in-Chief during an ongoing armed conflict. Any one of those facts should cause extreme hesitation by the Court; taken together, they require the most exacting scrutiny to ensure that if the judicial power is to be exercised in such a far-reaching manner it is clearly within the Court’s jurisdiction to do so. Yet plaintiffs cannot come close to establishing that jurisdiction, as they cannot carry their burden of demonstrating even the basic elements of standing. They claim they fear military detention, based on an erroneous interpretation of the statute that would extend its scope in direct contradiction of the statute’s words, and with no regard for the context that gives it meaning. They persist in asserting that interpretation even though it is contravened by over a decade of history; they cannot point to a single example of the military’s detaining anyone for engaging in conduct even remotely similar to the type of expressive activities they allege could lead to detention. And they continue to seek unprecedented injunctive relief despite already obtaining assurance from the government in this case that based on their allegations they are not detainable under this statute. Plaintiffs therefore have fallen far short of meeting their burden to show they have been injured by the statute; their complaints are the types of generalized grievances of allegedly unlawful government conduct that have been repeatedly held insufficient to support standing.

Even if plaintiffs had some cognizable injuries, those harms would not be redressed by an injunction against section 1021; as plaintiffs themselves acknowledge, such an injunction would have “nil” effect, for the government would continue to possess the identical detention authority under the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force. Plaintiffs thus would achieve no meaningful relief from the injunction they seek, and lack standing for that reason as well. Because plaintiffs lack standing, this Court need not (and must not) unnecessarily decide the constitutional questions plaintiffs present.

If it were necessary to reach the merits, plaintiffs’ claims would fail. Their facial and overbreadth challenges, if even appropriate in this context, founder on the indisputable fact that section 1021 has a plainly legitimate sweep that dwarfs the purported infringement on free expression; indeed, the statute is not even aimed at speech or expressive conduct. Nor is the statute unconstitutionally vague: it does not prohibit any conduct and therefore is not even subject to vagueness analysis. Even if it were it would still be valid, as its meaning as informed by context is more than clear enough to meet constitutional standards. All of plaintiffs’ claims on the merits fail, but in particular none of their theories can come close to justifying the invalidation of the non-punitive war-time authority that Congress affirmed in section 1021.

For all those reasons, the Court should enter judgment for the government.

Who Benefits from Obamacare? Democrats, Republicans & the Corporations that Control Both Parties.

Obamacare

Both Democrats & Republicans are lying for their corporate masters: Obamacare was not primarily about healthcare OR taxes. The goal was the individual mandate.

WHO BENEFITS FROM OBAMACARE? DEMOCRATS, REPUBLICANS & THE CORPORATIONS THAT CONTROL BOTH PARTIES.

In last week’s United States Supreme Court ruling re National Federation of Independent Business Et Al v. Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services, Et Al (11-393/28-Jun-2012) a.k.a. “NFIB v. Sebelius”, the individual mandate to purchase health insurance and associated penalties for non-compliance contained in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148/H.R.3590/PPACA/23-Mar-2010) a.k.a. the “Affordable Care Act” a.k.a. “Obamacare” were declared to be a tax and therefore constitutional:

http://tinyurl.com/23eruxt

http://tinyurl.com/7bxnmq5

The Obamacare bill is a massive piece of legislation – depending on formatting, anywhere from 900+ to 2000+ pages – much of which can loosely be construed as “healthcare reform”. That millions of Americans will be impacted by this law is beyond dispute. Whether that impact will be positive or negative, on the other hand, will be a source of sociopolitical debate for many years – assuming of course our illegal and immoral death-from-above droning and Oil Wars Iran-baiting antics in Syria, Balochistan and elsewhere don’t get us all blown to Kingdom Come in the interim:

http://tinyurl.com/7chvesh

http://tinyurl.com/893cwux

There are, however, three clear and immediate beneficiaries of Obamacare: the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, and the Global Corporations who control them both:

1. THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY can truthfully energize their base of lemmings on the left side of the false divide by declaring a victory for “healthcare reform” – although the percentage of Americans who can expect to receive a net benefit from all the changes in that mass of legalese is only about 10 percent, and some 5 million of us are projected to actually LOSE our health insurance coverage as a result of Obamacare. According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO):

“Compared with prior law, the ACA is now estimated by CBO and JCT to reduce the number of nonelderly people without health insurance coverage by 30 million to 33 million in 2016 and subsequent years, leaving 26 million to 27 million nonelderly residents uninsured in those years… The share of legal nonelderly residents with insurance is projected to rise from 82 percent in 2012 to 93 percent by 2022. According to the current estimates, from 2016 on, between 20 million and 23 million people will receive coverage through the new insurance exchanges, and 16 million to 17 million people will be enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP. Also, 3 million to 5 million fewer people will have coverage through an employer compared with the number under prior law.”

http://tinyurl.com/7be3xtz

2. THE REPUBLICAN PARTY can legally (and from that narrow perspective truthfully) energize their base of lemmings on the right side of the false divide by parroting Chief Justice Roberts’ proclamation that its individual mandate and therefore Obamacare represent a “tax increase” from a President whose campaign promised no tax increases on the middle class, and who personally and through his administration vowed repeatedly that Obamacare was NOT a tax. In Obama’s own words:

2.a. “I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8erePM8V5U

http://tinyurl.com/4j7jjtr

2.b. “I absolutely reject that notion,” Obama said under repeated questioning by Stephanopoulos. “For us to say that you’ve got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase,” Obama said. “You can’t just make up that language and decide that that’s called a tax increase.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQMkOScXctY

http://tinyurl.com/7anf3w4

3. THE GLOBAL CORPORATIONS that control both the Democratic and Republican Parties – and through that “Two-Party Tryanny” our government and all of us – are the biggest beneficiaries of Obamacare. The global fascist elite 1% could care less about improving the health of the other 99% or what new tax burdens are placed on the backs of a middle-class struggling to survive yet still desperately hanging on to the belief that somehow, someday they too will be rich, famous and have their own Reality TV show if they just stay on the treadmill and keep running. And by using the Congressional power to tax rather than the Commerce Clause as the basis for his decision, corporate puppet Chief Justice Roberts made sure the NFIB v. Sebelius ruling would stir up a partisan political firestorm – and accompanying smokescreen – to keep the Sheeple divided and fighting each other, blinded to the white-collar crime being perpetrated by their common enemy:

Reaching far beyond the corporatization of medicine and privatization of healthcare in America, the 1%’s objective with Obamacare was to establish a constitutional legal precedent for individual mandates by which the wealthy can become even wealthier simply by having their paid political puppets pass laws mandating that we buy their corporate products and increase their profits – regardless of whether we want, need or can afford them.

Today, it’s overpriced health insurance. Tomorrow, it might be underpowered Chevys.

Where are the Jeffersonians? And where is the outrage?

SCOTUS Obamacare Decision Makes Individual Mandate A Fact & Universal Healthcare Coverage A Fiction

Individual Mandate

Supreme Court ruling re “National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius” means corporations can use federal law to force people to buy their products.

SCOTUS OBAMACARE DECISION MAKES INDIVIDUAL MANDATE A FACT & UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE COVERAGE A FICTION

If you want to read all 974 pages of the deceptively-titled “Patient Protection And Affordable Healthcare Act” (the actual Obamacare law) you can do so here:

http://www.healthcare.gov/law/full/

If you want to read all 193 pages of the obscurely-styled “National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius” U.S. Supreme Court decision (the actual Obamacare ruling) you can do so here:

http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/11pdf/11-393c3a2.pdf

As was the case with F. James (“Fat Jim”) Sensenbrenner Jr.’s USA Patriot Act, NDAA 2012, HR347, HR658, HR3606 and so many other corporate-backed bills that have taken us down the slippery slope from freedom to fascism and widened the gap between our ruler Haves (the 1%) and serf Have Nots (the 99%), there’s a good chance your Senators and Representative in Washington didn’t read the law before they passed it. There’s a better chance the television talking heads tripping over themselves to tell you what to think about the SCOTUS Obamacare decision didn’t read that either…

http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/thu-june-28-2012/cnn—fox-news-report-supreme-court-decision

…and it’s a sad certainty that the vast majority of the American Sheeple (a) will never look up from their iPhones or away from their Fakebook pages long enough to read either the new “healthcare” rules or the ruling that proclaimed them “Constitutional” and (b) wouldn’t understand all the deliberately obfuscated legalspeak if they did.

So where can Average Joe get the plain and simple truth about the “Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA)” and the Supreme Court’s “NFIB v. Sebelius (11-393)” ruling?

Well according to the “truth in politics” (ugh!) watchdogs at FactCheck.org, he won’t get it from Barack Obama (a.k.a. Odrona the Indefinite Detainer), and he won’t get it from Mitt Romney (a.k.a. the Godfather of Obamacare)…

‘With the U.S. Supreme Court upholding the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act on June 28, voters are guaranteed to continue hearing the same old false claims about the law from politicians. And President Barack Obama and presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney wasted little time in taking to the airwaves to rehash plenty we’ve fact-checked before. Obama even threw in a few new claims.

  • Obama reiterated his “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan” refrain, despite the fact that at least a few million workers won’t keep their employer-sponsored plans, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
  • The president also exaggerated the benefits of the law, such as the number of young adults who were able to join their parents’ plans, thanks to the law, and the number of individuals who will receive rebates issued by insurance companies that didn’t spend enough premium dollars on health care.
  • Romney repeated a number of distortions, saying that the law would “cut Medicare” by $500 billion and that it “adds trillions to our deficits.” That’s a reduction in the future growth of Medicare spending over 10 years. And CBO says the law would reduce the deficit.
  • Romney said the law is a “job-killer.” But CBO says the law would have a “small” impact on jobs, mainly affecting the amount of labor workers choose to supply. Those getting subsidies, for instance, might work less hours since they’re paying less for health care.
  • Romney claimed the law “puts the federal government between you and your doctor.” The law would set minimum benefits packages, but medical services will not be government-run, nor does the law allow for rationing of care.’

http://factcheck.org/2012/06/romney-obama-uphold-health-care-falsehoods/

Average Joe won’t get the plain and simple truth about what the SCOTUS Obamacare decision really means from Congress, from TV coverage, or from the corporate-sponsored political puppets representing either side of the “Two-Party Tyranny” the global elite use to keep us divided and fighting each other rather than united and attacking them. Fortunately, however, he can get a glimpse of it here:

“A deeply divided Court held that the individual mandate, which requires that virtually all Americans either obtain health insurance or pay a penalty by 2014, is constitutional… Defending the constitutionality of the mandate, the government’s primary argument was that Congress can require everyone to buy health insurance using its power under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution, because the failure to buy insurance shifts the costs of health care for the uninsured to health-care providers, insurance companies, and everyone who does have health insurance. Five Justices – the Chief Justice and Justices Kennedy, Scalia, Thomas, and Alito – all rejected that argument. But the government still won, because a different set of five Justices – the Chief Justice and Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan – agreed that the mandate was constitutional, but for a different reason… Although the Chief Justice rejected the government’s Commerce Clause argument, he agreed with one of the government’s alternative arguments: the mandate imposes a tax on people who do not buy health insurance, and that tax is something that Congress can impose using its constitutional taxing power.”

http://www.scotusblog.com/2012/06/todays-health-care-decision-in-plain-english/

The bottom line is this:

As were “Citizens United v. FEC” (which allows global and even foreign corporations to buy our elections) and “AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion” (which makes consumer class actions against corporations infinitely more difficult), the SCOTUS “NFIB v. Sebelius” decision is a BIG WIN for corporations in general and health care and insurance companies in particular. Contrary to the claims of clueless Obamapologists from coast to coast, neither Obamacare nor this ruling “paves the way to Universal Healthcare Coverage”. Instead, they set the precedent for more individual mandates by which the corporations which control our politicians and through them our government can order us to order their products.

END TWO-PARTY TYRANNY: OUR SECOND REVOLUTION!

If you are a Twitter user, we ask you to contact @Support and demand this corporate fascist censorship be ended:
