House and Senate Quietly Pass Bigger & Badder 2014 NDAA

Yesterday the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act was fast-tracked through the Senate. The indefinite detention allowed by the original NDAA is still here, and it’s actually worse now, because there are provisions that will make it easier for the government to target those who disagree. Section 1071 outlines the creation of the “Conflict Records Research Center,” where the unconstitutionally obtained information that the NSA has collected is compiled and shared with the Department of Defense. The information, called in the wording “captured records,” can be anything from your phone records, emails, browsing history or posts on social media sites. Continue reading

And think about a President whose preferred policy is to use intimidation and the intentional infliction of pain and suffering to achieve his goals. When does petty tyranny become real and oppressive? And how do we as citizens respond? Continue reading

Presidents’ Day

The Constitution is not flawed; the only flaws are in the corrupt and ambitious people in whom we placed our trust — and in ourselves for allowing them to bastardize the original words and meaning of the Constitution’s laws to carry favor with those who will keep them in power.

U.S. Emergency Internment and Resettlement Operations: Federal Troops Get Their Marching Orders

We will presume most of you are aware that the U.S. military has been given the authorization by Congress and the president to indefinitely detain Americans under the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

Now comes to light the instruction manual of exactly what our esteemed men and women in uniform are authorized to do — maybe ordered to do — should some person(s) unknown in the basement of a government safe house decide you are a potential threat to the government. Continue reading
