Behind the scenes: Obama and the NDAA

by Doug Hagmann

Additional research and investigation into the controversial National Defense Authorization Act found something very interesting is not apparently being reported by the U.S. media.  Readers will recall that controversy that surrounded the liberty-threatening NDAA legislation, passed with bipartisan support in the House and Senate and signed into law by Barack Hussein Obama last New Year’s Eve.

That law essentially gave the government the right to arrest and detain, without due process, American citizens on significantly vague and broad charges ostensibly related to terrorism. The legislation opened a “Pandora’s box” of unpleasant possibilities that undermine our Constitutional rights and threaten our liberties unlike any other time in our national history.

Supporters of the NDAA, along with the media, were quick to point to a “signing statement” penned by Obama expressing his concern over the liberty restricting rights of the law, as if that somehow made the language of the new law suddenly conform to the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. Obviously, it did no such thing, but people were apparently comforted by this eight-page cross-my-heart promise that Obama and his redesigned national security apparatus would never use it for “bad.” Obama said he was uncomfortable with the particular language of section 1021 (and related portions) that called for arrests and indefinite detentions of U.S. citizens under the broad brush of terrorism.

This is very worrysome. o’bama’s relection (or the suspention of elections), financial trouble at home and abroad, Redefining of who is a terrorist, FEMA camps, body bags, drought the is causing food prices to rise and or food shortages, natural desasters every where, home land security ordering 600 million rounds of ammo, the list goes on and on. I’m not one to be a hide under your bed type but the writing is beggining to become clearer.
We are on the edge of something very big in history. IF there is a 12/21/12 Mayan or Hopi or Edgar Casey or Jewish Numerology or sun spots or Circle of Fire event “pack your bags son we’re heading home”.
