ALERT: "Nat'l Defense Authorization Act"!

Wisdom Quarterly;;
We always thought it could not get worse than Dick Cheney and the Patriotic Act. But it has.

Happy Bill of Rights Day
The NDAA ("National Defense Authorization Act") seems set to become law with Obama's White House no longer threatening to veto it.

It will allow any US president as well as any branch of the military to lock up any citizen indefinitely (forever) without any right to ever being charged, or tried, or given any access to the legal system.

President Obama had originally threatened to veto the Carl Levin-John McCain bill because he wanted even more power than that:

B.S. Obama wanted the power to imprison or assassinate anyone with or without the military. The conference committee modified the bill to accommodate him.

Now the it goes to a final vote in the House [already passed] and Senate, and then to the executive office (the president of the corporation himself) for signing, a veto, or -- as long as the Constitution is being disregarded -- a possible law-altering signing statement.

The pretext to end all pretextes for war has been trumped.

This bill is a direct assault on the First, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Amendments. That constitutes the majority of our "Bill of Rights." And in an ironic twist that cannot be an accident in this public relations dominated world, today (Dec. 15th) is Bill of Rights Day.

Help Us Stop Congress From Passing Indefinite Detention Bill!
(ACLU) Earlier this week we told everyone about Congress trying to rush a bill to the president’s desk.

The NDAA bill will authorize the military to go literally anywhere in the world to imprison civilians with no right to trial or ever even being charged -- even American citizens in the United States.

This means anyone can get sent to prison based on accusation alone.
