Obama Signs Law Banning Himself From Entering The US

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Simon Black via Sovereign Man blog,

You just can’t make this stuff up.

A few days ago the President of the United States signed into public law bill S. 2195, now known as Pub.L. 113-100.

The law aims to “deny admission to the United States to any representative to the United Nations who has been found to have been engaged in espionage activities or a terrorist activity against the United States and poses a threat to United States national security interests.”

In other words, if the US government thinks that if you have been spying on the United States, then they won’t let you in the country.

Gee, let’s think for a moment– who has been engaging in espionage against the United States? Anyone?

Ah, right. The US government. Mr. Obama himself. The entire US intelligence network. They’ve all been engaging in espionage against the United States, especially its citizens.

But let us not forget, the law also bars entry for folks who have engaged in terrorist activity against the United States.

Just so that we don’t mince words, my dictionary defines terrorism as the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.

Once again, the US government. Violence? Check. Intimidation? Check.

The government has awarded itself the power to hold people indefinitely without trial under military detention, assassinate US citizens by drone attacks, or use tax authorities to harrass political opposition groups.

The Department of Homeland Security is working to purchase 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition (and counting), enough to maintain a shooting war within the US for 22 years.

And local police departments are trading in their light blue uniforms for black paramilitary attire, combat boots, automatic assault rifles, and armored vehicles.

The whole place has become a giant police state where you can’t even apply for a passport anymore without being threatened with fines and imprisonment.

When the Republic was founded, there were three federal crimes listed in the Constitution: treason, piracy, and counterfeiting.

Today the number of laws, codes, and regulations is astounding. It is a federal crime, for example, to knowingly make a false statement to a federally insured bank.

(Naturally, though, banks can lie through their teeth and defraud their customers with impunity…)

Not to mention, there are hundreds of federal agencies as innocuous as the Fish and Wildlife Service which have gun-toting police forces to kick down doors and throw people in jail.

The government doesn’t rule with the consent of the governed. They rule through fear, intimidation, and threats of violence. They spy. They deceive. They steal.

So you can probably appreciate the irony and arrogance of the President signing this new law which bars spies and terrorists from entering the country.

The entire notion is so absurd, it’s like Barack calling the kettle black. And technically speaking he has just legally banned himself from being in the Land of the Free.

If you were in Cuba you would be water boarded. 

In Cuidad you would be shot with cocaine on sight.

A man was reported to have said: "Obama is a moron!" and was arrested by a policeman. "No, sir, I meant not our respected President, but another Obama!" - "Don't try to trick me: if you say "moron", you are obviously referring to our President!"

Even fonestar was denied entry into the US once (ironically, by a DHS agent wearing a big Masonic ring) so don't feel bad Barry!

When government lies, steals, murders, and breaks the law (which is all the time), it isn't called lies, theft, breaking the law and murder.  It's called press releases, taxes, standard operating procedures, and spreading democracy.

How y'all likin that old Patriot Act now !?

On the bright side, it looks like DC gridlock has eased up a bit.

Laws are made to protect the lawmakers from law-abiding citizens.

The author Douglas Valentine related how he went to his local FBI office in Springfield, MA and asked to talk to an agent.  He asked them to define "Terrorism".  When he got his answer he pulled up the NYT and asked "why aren't you obeying the law and arresting these CIA agents referred to in the article for terrorism?"  The agent got flustered and referred him to Boston.  Boston got flustered and referred him to DC.  After some back and forth the FBI finally stated in an email that "the FBI has no authority over the CIA."

The FBI knows full well that the CIA engages in terrorism. 

Step aside, Orwell.

This is interesting. How do they intend to prove that one has been spying? This is one of those situations (seemingly) where they can accuse anyone of spying, thus denying entry to anyone. 

 

Unless I read this incorrectly.

To your point, these are commited daily. But those that commit these crimes hold themselves above the law.

You're seriously asking for a visit from the Secret Service.

Oh no, now I probably am too for communicating with you. Shit

Law banning Obama from US. There is a GOD!

You got that right. Never before has the phrase "Full Retard" been more apt.

I nominate LOP for the citizens arrest.

yrbmegr's picture

Well, Simon, you made it up.  All the law did was add terrorist activities to the offenses that would get you banned.  Espionage was already in the code, and that did not change.  And equating law enforcement with terrorism is certifiable.

It's a slow day... (can always tell by the increase in articles attacking political entities- today it's Omaba and Reed; I'd like to say that I can't wait to see if ZH is consistent with the other side of the coin takes the throne and is doing the exact same thing, but I really don't care all that much)

yrbmegr's picture

Well, I'm still waiting for the "Cliven Bundy Was Wrong" post.

Seer's picture

Depends on the outcome he is wanting.  Knowing that the US govt (as are all govts) are about tax collection and violence then there can ONLY be one of two outcomes:

1) Death;

2) Pay up.

I don't care whether people don't like to hear this.  This is reality. I didn't make the rules up.  And until others are willing to get off their lazy asses and go out and alter this outcome- STFU (I'm tired of all the raging cowboys whining about everything and then doing nothing [but whining about others not doing anything).

yrbmegr's picture

Indeed.  I come at it from a legal perspective, which is that his family didn't buy the ranch until the 50's (the 1950's that is), after the BLM came into existence, and Congress set the rules for the entire country by legislation in 1976, over-legislating any prior conflicting legislation.  And then there's Light v. U.S., a 1911 Supreme Court case almost directly on point that says the federal government can own land, can charge people to use it, and can exclude people if they trespass, just like any landowner.

So, Bundy is just wrong here, like Glenn Beck and Greta Whatshername say.  And I'd like to see a Tyler post it.

Down-arrowed by the Party Pussies: keep flagging you fucking pussies, demonstrate how large your numbers are here.  Never could have imagined...

Seer's picture

Even IF you provide proof (hint: link) people here already have their minds made up.  It's the Dancing With The Stars mentality, the mindset even exists here on ZH...  Dumb fuckers will think that you're defending Obama (when it's clearly not the case)...  well no one said that Party Pussies were very smart.

The left/right paradigmers are a strong force. I think we're ALL guilty of falling back to it at some point or other, even knowing what it is.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that Israel is exempt from this "law"?

Riprake's picture

Nope. It just doesn't apply to them because Israelis aren't guilty of any of the crimes this law covers, whereas the Islamofascist Paleo-Nazi Jordanians and Egyptians illegally squatting on Israel's land and the swastika-humping jackbooted "anti-Zionist" goose-steppers who support them are.

pods's picture

Let's be frank, the US is on the downward slide of the empire curve.

The laws (statutes) of the land are already so numerous that nobody can possibly know them all.

Our debt is skyrocketing, cities are in shambles and wealth has been plundered.

Things are getting desperate, and teh government moreso.

There is no way that they can pull off this water landing @500 knots coming in at a 45 degree angle.

Just prepare as best as you can and remember that when the ballon goes up, it is too late to start preparing.

I might suggest johngaltfla's "Dollar Died" series. A very good read to brush up on the possibilities.

Seer's picture

Yeah, but other than that don't you think things are going really well? </sarc>

I'm going to laugh when it hurts (better than cyring I suppose).

pods's picture

Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?

The Dollar Died series is much happier than watching The Road at least?

Nah, grew up to the west (Binghamton) but IIRC there wasn't a whole lot up there till you hit Albany.

My skin started to crawl reading about how "hip" it is though:

"Also, as he pointed out, there is no group more self-consciously activist and devoted to giving back than the “Upper West Siders and East Villagers and Brooklynites” who are moving here. “They are almost painfully conscious about giving back and fitting in,” he said."

The locals there must just love the hip new activists!  Sounds a lot like Ithaca though.  Well without the lakes and colleges.

I like Binghamton, well driving through anyway. Always see some dudes fishing off rt 17. Looks peaceful.

As for the new neighbors in the Hudson.....
