Guest Post: Should Obama And Congress Be Arrested Under The NDAA?

Should Obama And Congress Be Arrested Under The NDAA?

Should President Obama (alongside Lindsay Graham and John McCain) be wearing an orange jumpsuit?

Welcome to the beautiful and surreal reality of life under American corporatism, under a Congress that churns out thousands  and thousands of pages of (often contradictory) legislation a year.

If providing material assistance to al-Qaeda is illegal under the National Defence Authorization Act (2012), and Obama and Congress are sending $25 million of aid to al-Qaeda-affiliated Syrian opposition, aren’t Congress and President Obama violating their own law? Should Obama (or at least the Justice Department) not be using “all necessary and appropriate force” including “the power to indefinitely detain” to prevent Obama and Congress from assisting al-Qaeda? Did anyone in Congress or the Obama administration even bother to read the law that they were signing? Do Federal laws no longer apply to lawmakers?

The only question left from this abrupt and absurd turnaround — from funding bin Laden’s mujahideen thirty years ago, to ten years ago declaring war on al-Qaeda, to today sending them material assistance — would appear to be whether or not Obama will pull a 1984 and claim that “we have always been at war with Eurasia“.

The better choice is to abandon them all - Blue and Red - and build our own world, OUR way.

The state is a barbaric institution from 5000 BC.

Really, how sane is it to obey people we know to be thieves and liars?

I'm writing a book titled, "The Base" English translation from the Arabic Al-Qaeda.

Chapter 1 begins like this;

Call me Sheeple. It began some years ago when Arabic speaking people laughed their asses off at Americans whenever they heard the words Al-Qaeda. Where are all these Al-Qaeda bases located, they thought to themselves.

In Arabic, al-Qaeda has four syllables. However, the closest naturalized English pronunciations include /æl-ka-d/, /æl-ke-d/ Al-Qaeda's name can also be transliterated as al-Qaida, al-Qa'ida, el-Qaida, or al-Qaeda.

The name comes from the Arabic noun q'idah, which means foundation or basis, and can also refer to a military base. The initial al- is the Arabic definite article the, hence the base.

Bin Laden explained the origin of the term in a videotaped interview with Al Jazeera journalist Tayseer Alouni in October 2001:

The name 'al-Qaeda' was established a long time ago by mere chance. The late Abu Ebeida El-Banashiri established the training camps for our mujahedeen against Russia's terrorism. We used to call the training camp al-Qaeda. The name stayed.(That's as much as I can give you for now).

Yes, imagine we were sitting in china posting such hateful comments about chinese state leaders... we would be thrown in some dark whole and shut-uped immediately.

I am glad we have "free speech"... but something tells me thats just a "temporary privilege" we recieved from our "generous masters"...

Also, what good is free speech if a lazy pathetic populace never translates it into free action?

 

But maybe thats our problem... we think we are so free and cool, just because we can laugh at our leaders! Yet we dont even create our own money.... who is laughing at who anyway, ... what a circus this is!

Well, the U.S. isn't doing too badly in the murdering of innocent people category, considering over 50M children have been slaughtered since the detestable Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade.  The babies were not afforded any rights to defend themselves whatsoever.  The way I figure it, Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot and the rest of the gang have nothing on us.

I am 100% certain that there are far greater issues facing this country and this planet than abortion, overpopulation being in the Top Ten list. From the perspective espoused in your comment, I would have thought the a more detestable Supreme Court decision would have been the granting of person-hood to corporations. Imagine that, those lofty justices, sworn before God almighty, their hand on His Word, to uphold and defend the US Constitution, recognizing a legal construct as a "person", incapable really of being punished for its "sins" yet endowed with the ability to dispense "mercy" to its creators.

These corporate persons have the amazing ability to create virtually unlimited quantities of offspring and incest is practically sport. Their insatiable ability to fornicate, albeit metaphorically, does result in very real destroyed lives and abortions way beyond the "Biblical" connotation of the term. That seems to me more than just a little salt rubbed on the aborted fetus, wouldn't you say?

Have some repsect for fully grown. living woman who is carrying the fetus (not child). Show some compassion for the various medical crises that can make it necessary to, yes necessary, to get an abortion.

but so long as we have "free speech", we're better off than was the Soviet Union,

so there's still time to do something,

or maybe we won't have to do anything,

or don't have to, because

Don't mistake free speach as it exists today as a "temporary privilege".  The only reason we have free speach (as well as the internet) it so they have the ability to categorize us. Tey want us all barking so their advanced super computers can assisign a priority nuber to us so they know who to lock up (or kill) first when the crash accelerated.

However I wonder how many readers are not posting critical comments of government and government officials because they know every comment is being scanned for anti-establishment viewpoints?

Just  the knowledge that you're being watched is loss of freedom of speech. Freedom is extremely fragile.

 A police state does not require total surveillance.

That you may be being watched, that records which you cannot dispute can be produced if you are singled out, that you might be talking to an informant or agent, that you may be blacklisted, put on a 'no-fly' list or some list, that your family may suffer, that you could be questioned, audited, that you could be detained without habeas corpus, that you might be reported because of a grudge, envy, or some one's attempt at self-promotion, or because someone was compelled to "name names", or that just by some association you could automatically be guilty of the most draconian laws ...

all that could easily be construed as stifling freedom.

But fortunately in the USA,

"only the guilty want to hide anything"...

When they give you a label as a 'hater', they are participating in a form of hate themselves 'name calling' and therefore are opposed against themselves and can be ignored.

"I am a hater and I hate you because you are a hater." - a HATER.

Where is the love?  We could at least try to take care of each other!

It's not a government. It is a private corporation masquerading as a government (Organic Act of 1871, 28 USC 3002). All US citizens/persons are bonded chattel of this corporation (HJR 192 c.1933).

The Bretton Woods Agreement of 1944 quit-claim deeded the DISTRICT OF COLOMBIA corporation to the IMF. The US flag is copywrited property of the BRITISH CROWN. US laws aka the UCC is copywrited British law.

The only lawful government in America today is the Republic for the united States of America.

"Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes"

I like you guys...but...

You guys are a side effect of what is going on, not the solution.  Go read the Declaration of Independence.

"Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise;"

People who will not study history are doomed to repeat it.  That above line has an effect to.

"the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within."

The people who wrote that thing werre no pikers.   Read it! 

"For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:"

Sound like the corporation that you guys are always complaining about? 

How did they handle that back then?

I will give you a hint.  Well read copies of Blackstones Commentaries and the Bible.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buiO1K_kRSg

Find out who you are.   Find out what one person can do.

If you find the right remedy, it will be simple, lawful, self apparent and the 'bad guys' will run away like little girls.

I agree and also add that since the US government openly supports the terrorist group MEK (it's on the State Department list of recognized terrorist groups), and is working WITH al Qaeda plus countless others, anyone who give aid or support to the US Government is guilty under the NDAA and must be punished. 

So, don't support the US government by paying taxes because it's against the law (NDAA)

And don't vote or work on the Novemeber election because that's against the law, too.

The US Government could relieve this confusion if they would just post a list of terrorist organizations we can support and ones we can't support.  Or should I say, which lies to believe and which lies not to believe?

That pink slime at least tasted alright until the truth became known. But what about the slime that supposedly should be providing leadership to a nation that has spent itself broke making enemies and has reduced its nation to an unemployed mass of food stamp dependent citizens who are refused the right to even a rate of pay that can maintain some level of dignity.

That slime is becoming less transparent, less accountable and less mindful by the day.

The bad news is that their hold over wealth, the police, the judiciary, the army and the press as well as the internet, means that the situation will not only get worse for any man who does not live in Wall Street, but will last far longer than any of us suspect.

Their great hope is that they can continue this charade long enough for a whole new generation to be raised under these conditions so that to them their plight will seem normal.

Great nations are supposed to die fighting for their people, for justice, for principles, for freedom.

The great nation of America will either die or morph into something vile unless someone can resurrect the spirit of America as envisaged by Washington, Jefferson and other great men who sacrificed thir wealth, their children and their own lives for what they believed in and cherished.

i am not an American by birth, but there has laways been a part of me that feels American. That part is sad, frustrated and angry. So my question to you Americans out there is, if you are feeling anything for your nation and your children's future, WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT IT?

No doubt Bush stunk as a President.  He was merely another Statist in Republican clothing.  But Bush was, pardon the expression, a pale, pale imitation of the Statist-in-Chief currently occupying the people's house at 1900 PA Ave.

The pro-government "you must do things peacefully and vote!" propaganda is too storng and most people don't want to rock the boat, knowing full well that if they do, they'll be tasered, beaten and arrested at the very least and shot to death at the worst -- realizing that the cops will at most get paid "administrative leave" for doing so.

THEY are getting ready. 450 million times over. It's been covered here repeatedly that the least costly and most likely to succeed option is peaceful non- compliance. STOP participating. Anyone can engage in non- compliance. You as an individual must choose this option and you have literally for all practical purposes unlimited ways of expressing your non-compliance.

Unfortunately the demons are ahead of us though. If you can't see that the machine is intentionally gunning for destruction then I suppose you like the rear view mirror?

The fact is that an epic clash is being staged and they are making plans, The stage is being set. They are not stupid. They are evil and evil uses stupid as a mask to deceive and disarm you. The state of our collective malaise is intentional and by design.

The State is the ultimate vampire and we are what it requires to fuel it's literally evil desires. The Beast is aware that we are aware and so soon it shall act to correct what it perceives as the threat to it's dominance (us).

It knows that we know and so very soon the mask will simply come off and at that point rules are cancelled and reality will be manifest.

The 'party' is nearly over.

Think seriously about that which we know of the character of these beast who enslave us? Consider all that we know they have done. From central banking in full fractional reserve glory to 9/11. The 'civil' war to the leviathan we are serving under today.

The 99% prefer to go along to get along and that is precisely how it succeeds.

Teresa Ghilarducci 

Epilogue: MF Global, PFG Best, and now the Knight Capital "algo error". One of the reasons that the government is gleefully relishing in the disintegration of the financial markets is because they WANT people to BEG the government to "nationalize" and "guarantee" retirement accounts. They are building a dossier to argue that the markets aren't safe (but remember, the markets have disintegrated BECAUSE of the actions and responsorial inactions of the oligarchs and their bureaucrat cronies). That's what Communists do. This is the Cloward-Piven Strategy in full execution. Intentionally cause the system to collapse, then whip up the "useful idiots" into a frenzy, and finally seize total power AT THE INVITATION OF THE PEOPLE. The Russians BEGGED for Lenin and the Bolsheviks. They DEMANDED tyranny. The Germans BEGGED for the Third Reich and Hitler. They DEMANDED tyranny.

Before it is over here, the people of the United States, monumentally more stupid, godless and most especially HELPLESS, will BEG the government to take over their retirement accounts - to save them from the very market that the government has coordinated with the Bankster Oligarchs to destroy.

The "planners" are real confident. So confident they are not even trying to persuade anymore. Just read some "New economic thinking" at the Soros funded institute for New Economic Thinking" website. It is scary how godlike these destroyers think they are. There is an eery soulessness in their faces.

Hard sometimes to sit back and watch them try to manipulate reality. They think they can simply alter your perception, and the details dont matter. Like the BLS, spot silver, LIBOR, gold, refined gas, even what gets covered on the news. There is no happy ending in this.

You're right. The Institute for New Economic Thinking (the title alone should be a warning) says this:

... policymakers and the public should listen to economists who fulfill two critera: first, they have made empirically testable predictions that have proved, by and large, to be broadly consistent with the data; and second, they base those predictions on an analytic framework (not necessarily a formal model) that is persuasive.

So who does he list? First up is Krugman. They willfully ignore all the times Krugman has been wrong. Good grief. The way statists take two facts and then declare the opposite of those facts amazes me. Actually what it reminds me of is reading about the Ukranian starvation of the early 1930s. The Communists would issue quotas that couldn't be met, then raid the houses declaring that since the residents were still alive, they must be hiding food from the state. The Communists that perpetrated atrocities got to live and were fed. It seems that mindless followers like Occupy exactly fit the mold of low-level Party enforcers. There is no happy ending in this.

The truth is of course that noone knows for sure that Paul would be the game changer unless it is tried successfully. There are TPTB that possibly would dislike that to happen.

I mean, the people should not vote for Paul because of Paul, they should do it to regain freedom and the right to decide. So we are all needed to voice our opinion to get our rights back. That doesn't necessarily lead into an election of Paul, but if there are a lot of voices asking for liberty and so on, that would already change things.

The Noble prize winner has never seen a war that he did not like and the US media as usual are gung ho for more wars:

 

In its slavish hypocrisy and propaganda, special mention must be reserved for the role of the American media, which is moving into full war mode. On Friday morning, the New York Times published a lead article by C.J. Chivers, which opened by declaring that “diplomatic efforts [are] dead and the future of Syria [is] playing out on the battlefield.” The announcement by Kofi Annan on Friday that he will resign as UN negotiator for Syria is seen as confirmation of the end to all negotiations with the Assad government.

The US media has enthusiastically endorsed the anti-Assad forces, even after it has been widely reported that Al Qaeda is active among them. This ranges from the sympathetic portrayal on last night’s ABC News show of anti-Assad youth, armed with Kalashnikovs and driven to fight by faith in Allah, to Chivers and the Times praising anti-Assad insurgents’ use of roadside bombs.

In the Orwellian world of American bourgeois politics, no one stops to ask how to resolve the crying contradiction between US policy in Syria and its claim it is fighting a “war on terror.”

If the media cannot answer or indeed even ask such questions, it is because the answer is too explosive: the “war on terror”—ostensibly the basis of US politics for over a decade—is a pack of lies. Washington makes or breaks de facto alliances with Al Qaeda purely based on the cynical calculation of its imperialist interests.

Why is Washington fighting Assad and backing the brutal regime of Afghan President Hamid Karzai? The answer has nothing to with democracy or a fight against Islamist terrorism. It is that the US and its allies have first pickings of Afghanistan’s mineral wealth and enjoy the advantages of controlling its highly strategic location. Syria, however, is as an ally of Iran and Russia. It is considered a threat to Israel and, more broadly, to US hegemony in the Middle East.
