Senate Moves To Allow Military To Intern Americans Without Trial- NDAA 2012

Arrest Americans

The Senate is set to vote on a bill today that would define the whole of the United States as a “battlefield” and allow the U.S. Military to arrest American citizens in their own back yard without charge or trial.

“The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself,” writes Chris Anders of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office.

Under the ‘worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial’ provision of S.1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which is set to be up for a vote on the Senate floor this week, the legislation will “basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who supports the bill.

The bill was drafted in secret by Senators Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), before being passed in a closed-door committee meeting without any kind of hearing. The language appears in sections 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA bill.

“I would also point out that these provisions raise serious questions as to who we are as a society and what our Constitution seeks to protect,” Colorado Senator Mark Udall said in a speech last week. One section of these provisions, section 1031, would be interpreted as allowing the military to capture and indefinitely detain American citizens on U.S. soil. Section 1031 essentially repeals the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 by authorizing the U.S. military to perform law enforcement functions on American soil. That alone should alarm my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, but there are other problems with these provisions that must be resolved.”

 This means Americans could be declared domestic terrorists and thrown in a military brig with no recourse whatsoever. Given that the Department of Homeland Security has characterized behavior such as buying gold, owning guns, using a watch or binoculars, donating to charity, using the telephone or email to find information, using cash, and all manner of mundane behaviors as potential indicators of domestic terrorism, such a provision would be wide open to abuse.

“American citizens and people picked up on American or Canadian or British streets being sent to military prisons indefinitely without even being charged with a crime. Really? Does anyone think this is a good idea? And why now?” asks Anders.

The ACLU is urging citizens to call their Senator and demand that the Udall Amendment be added to the bill, a change that would at least act as a check to prevent Americans being snatched off the streets without some form of Congressional oversight.

We have been warning for over a decade that Americans would become the target of laws supposedly aimed at terrorists and enemy combatants. Alex Jones personally documented how U.S. troops were being trained to arrest U.S. citizens in the event of martial law during urban warfare training drills back in the 90′s. Under the the National Defense Authorization Act bill, no declaration of martial law is necessary since Americans would now be subject to the same treatment as suspected insurgents in places like Afghanistan and Iraq.

If you thought that the executive assassination of American citizens abroad was bad enough, now similar powers will be extended to the “homeland,” in other words, your town, your community, your back yard.

  1. Susan,

    You must must must get this documentary I watched tonight. Its called the Daniel Project and it is excellent. Exactly what you and I have been talking about re: world events, Israel, middle east, prophecy etc… you can find out more about it on

  2. Wake Up America! REQUIRED READING Barack Hussein Obama – Blueprint – Culture of Corruption – Demonic – Obama Nation – Crimes Against Liberty – The Manchurian President – The Roots of Obama’s Rage – Revolt! – Control Freaks – Liberty and Tyranny – The Shadow Party – Obamanomics – CONDUCT UNBECOMING

  3. Unfortunately, I expected no less from John McCain. He’s arm bumping buddies with CFR, Trilateralist and Bilderberg members. When he ran against Obama in 2008, I had the distinct impression that he tried to give Obama the presidency. If for some reason he were to win the 2012 presidency, it is unlikely that existing policies would change. Here’s another opinion:

  4. I read this morning on a conservative byte email I got. I am not surprised, as a matter of fact I believe all things are just happening faster than I ever imagined. It makes sense when you look at the set up of 9-11 and the justification for the wars and “homeland security”….aka, watch how we make you so fearful that you will easily relinquish freedoms in the name of being made “safer”. Watch how we take away your civil rights with minimal resistance and it will be too late before you know what’s going on. I still put my faith in He who is greater in us than he who is in the world. R Paul has been warning us for a long time I just want to point out. Of course the bible has too.

    • Denise, you are putting your faith in the right place! I am thinking about writing a piece about where patriotism and love of country should fall in our lives. What does one do if one’s country becomes corrupt? What do we do with those feelings of rage & grief?

      • I would say Christianity comes first, which breeds Patriotism, which is essential to stand strong against the attempt at tyranny we have before us.

        The Founders were not fools, rather, intellectuals that set the rules down to prevent us from being governed by fools.

        Christianity always comes first because the Founders used it as a template to construct the Constitution.

        Cheers Susan, stop by once in awhile.
        The door is always open to you. 🙂

      • Well, I am at the point that I think…if this isn’t real and this isn’t prophetic than either the entire world got together and decided to ensure self fulfilled prophecy or its one hell of a coincidence. I still believe in courage and conviction and taking a stand for God and country and right. However, at the end of the day….when you realize the enormity of what is going down, you realize that you can only do what you can do and let God do the rest.

        I’m sure your piece will be excellent. I steal your stuff alot for examples (but I give my friend Susan in Seattle) credit.

      • …and oh BTW….don’t forget “The Star of Bethlehem” and “The Daniel Project”..Susan…I think you will be wowed.
