Defense Authorization Act of 2007
« on: February 01, 2008, 11:11:27 am »

Frank Morales, a Priest in New York City who has won a Project Censored award for combatting the police state, has done a good article on this treacherous law. http://www.towardfreedom.com/home/content/view/911/

Teaser:

"In a stealth maneuver, President Bush has signed into law a provision which, according to Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), will actually encourage the President to declare federal martial law (1). It does so by revising the Insurrection Act, a set of laws that limits the President's ability to deploy troops within the United States. The Insurrection Act (10 U.S.C.331 -335) has historically, along with the Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C.1385), helped to enforce strict prohibitions on military involvement in domestic law enforcement. With one cloaked swipe of his pen, Bush is seeking to undo those prohibitions.

"Public Law 109-364, or the "John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007" (H.R.5122) (2), which was signed by the commander in chief on October 17th, 2006, in a private Oval Office ceremony, allows the President to declare a "public emergency" and station troops anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to "suppress public disorder."

"President Bush seized this unprecedented power on the very same day that he signed the equally odious Military Commissions Act of 2006. In a sense, the two laws complement one another. One allows for torture and detention abroad, while the other seeks to enforce acquiescence at home, preparing to order the military onto the streets of America. Remember, the term for putting an area under military law enforcement control is precise; the term is 'martial law.'"

Thank you very much for that posting, Elias.
The slave labour camps prisons are fill, and people sleep in the streets.
We are given up on trusting each other, and often not ourselves.
The leaders slavers who presently direct coercive and violent force to protect their power continue to gobble their opiate pills of power, growing more greedy hourly, as we watch the culture of civility which includes respect, family, trust and honesty, free markets and free people, and absence of slavery, crumble before the slaver machinery of the state. 
We must each determine our individual response to this nightmare and awaken ourselves and others right now.

How nicely poetic you've phrased the quintessence of the problem, FF. I think you!

Well,  :wub: thanks, then of course I come back and edit it because a thought occurred to me a couple of minutes later.
