Well, my fellow Americans, you can forget Article 4 of the Bill of Rights, it's out the window now. It would seem that "due process" is rubbish. Our congress ( those non-representing representatives) has basically just anointed Obama the first KING of The
Police States of America. How quickly people forget how Castro brought down the Cuban government and brought in communism. At least he had to fire his weapon to do so, The American People Just pretty much just handed it over to Obama.
You can probably forget Article 1 of the Bill of Rights too. Freedom of speech? Bah! You'd better watch what you say and who you say it to or our government, in it's infinite wisdom and righteousness, may decide that you're a terrorist and lock you away in some military camp with no trial or attorney until the war on terror ends. And when does THAT happen? When King Obama says it's over, that's when.
This is a brave new world. Watch what you say. Be mindful of who you associate with. You may criticize your government within the privacy of your own home, amongst close family or friends, but do not post negative comments online. Do not assemble. Do not protest. Do not agitate. Do not give "comfort" to the "enemy."
We have met the enemy and he is us. This is a sad day for all of us. All of our military spending, all of our defenses, safeguards, and securities, and it turns out democracy was attacked from within, the historians will write someday. We didn't even see it coming.
I wouldn't be a bit surprised if he declares martial law, abolishes further presidential elections and declares himself "Fuhrer." December 21, 2012... not seeming like such a long shot for "end of an age" anymore. God help us all.

REPORT # 1
WASHINGTON -- Indefinite military detention of Americans became the law of the land Saturday, as President Barack Obama signed a defense bill that codified that authority, even as he said he would not use it.
The National Defense Authorization Act
states how the military is to be funded, but also includes a number of controversial provisions on arresting and holding suspected terrorists, which at first drove Obama to threaten a veto
.He retreated from that threat after Congress added provisions that took the ultimate authority to detain suspects from the military's hands and gave it to the president.
Congress also clarified that civilian law enforcement agencies -- such as the FBI -- would still have authority to investigate terrorism and added a provision that asserts nothing in the detention measures changes current law regarding U.S. citizens.
Still, the signing on New Year's Eve as few people were paying attention angered civil liberties advocates, who argue that the law for the first time spells out certain measures that have not actually been tested all the way to the Supreme Court, including the possibility of detaining citizens in military custody without trial for as long as there is a war on terror.
"President Obama's action today is a blight on his legacy because he will forever be known as the president who signed indefinite detention without charge or trial into law,” said Anthony Romero, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/31/obama-defense-bill_n_1177836.html?icid=maing-grid10%7Chtmlws-main-bb%7Cdl1%7Csec3_lnk2%26pLid%3D124161
REPORT # 2OBAMA SIGNS NDAA voiding Bill of Rights
UPDATE: OBAMA SIGNS NDAA, voiding provisions of Bill of Rights
December 31, 2011
On the eve of 2012, President Obama has, with the stroke of a pen, ended America as we know it.
With the National Defense Authorization Act now signed into law, American citizens can and possibly will be indefinitely detained by the military if they have been “accused” of any terrorist related activity.
In a press release published today, the ACLU further outlined their opposition to this unconstitutional law and highlighted the fact that Obama will now be known as the president who signed indefinite detention of Americans, far from any battlefield, into law.http://theintelhub.com/2012/01/01/the-end-of-america-as-we-know-it-obama-signs-ndaa-indefinite-detention-bill
"We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts -- not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution."Abraham Lincoln
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.
But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague."Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.) Roman Statesman, Philosopher and Orator
