Another Step in the Fascist Takeover of America
The Senate is ready to vote on legislation permitting the U.S. military to capture and indefinitely detain citizens on American soil. The language appears in sections 1031 and 1032 of the National Defense Authorization Act.
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.
Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky has come out against the legislation that will allow the Pentagon to arrest U.S. citizens and hold them indefinitely without due process or a trial as specified by the Sixth Amendment. Paul told Judge Andrew Napolitano it perplexed him “how anyone could vote to send an American citizen who’s been accused of a crime to a detention center in a foreign land without due process.”
The Obama administration said prior to the vote that the proposed legislation is “inconsistent with the fundamental American principle that our military does not patrol our streets.”
If Obama’s threatened veto is overridden and National Defense Authorization Act becomes law, it will allow the state to disappear its domestic political enemies the same way the dictator Pinochet in Chile eliminated his political opposition. Military kidnappings, torture and secret execution are the tactics of thugs in places like Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia and Communist China, not the United States.
