Enemy Congress~ S.3081 McCains Enemy Belligerent Act

by Becky Akers

As America travels the well-worn and brutal path earlier empires paved, it increasingly disdains the pretense of ruling “of, by and for the people.” And so the führer in the White House threatens to ram his impractical and deeply offensive plans for nationalizing medical insurance down our throats, regardless of how loudly we shriek “No!” Meanwhile, Congress prepares to imprison indefinitely any “enemy belligerents” who object to the government’s whims. You might suppose that dictators controlling almost 309,000,000 subjects would be too busy to fuss with legal niceties. But no. A preoccupation with legislative permission characterizes tyrannies, perhaps because it protects those responsible from prosecution should justice resurrect one day. The Nazis are notorious for legalizing their plunder, kidnapping en masse, and murder.

No wonder, then, that Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and nine co-sponsors have introduced legislation they might have cribbed from the Third Reich. “S.3081: Enemy Belligerent, Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010” supposedly “provide[s] for the interrogation and detention of enemy belligerents who commit hostile acts against the United States” — and, as the bill’s text repeatedly adds, its “coalition partners.” Note that a new and ungrammatical cluster of nouns, “enemy belligerents,” has not only replaced but enlarged the numbers of the old, equally ungrammatical “enemy combatants” — and yes, combining this with the Feds’ penchant for smearing even their mildest critics as terrorists means they have us firmly in their sights. Note further that the bill’s “persons” and “individuals” now specifically includes citizens of the US [Sec. 5], and that the US military, known to have tortured Iraqis, Afghanis, and others, may “detain” and “interrogate” these victims indefinitely.

Hard to say which is more monstrous: McCain’s stupidity or his evil. He’s so proud of this abomination that he’s posted his “Statement” introducing it to the Senate on his website: “This legislation seeks to ensure that the mistakes made during the apprehension of the Christmas Day bomber, such as reading him a Miranda warning, will never happen again and put Americans’ security at risk,” he says, apparently oblivious to the irony that empowering governments to destroy God-given, inalienable rights is precisely what puts Americans’ security at greatest risk.

No doubt unwittingly, McCain reveals the specious logic with which his legislation overturns the Constitution: “This bill would require unprivileged enemy belligerents suspected of engaging in hostilities against the U.S. to be held in military custody and interrogated for their intelligence value by a ‘high value detainee’ interagency team established by the President.” With a succinct 38 words, in which no less than 5 nouns are once again contorted into adjectives, McCain eviscerates the ancient right of habeas corpus, the presumption of innocence, and the right to an open trial. In place of the last, he substitutes judgment at the hands of appointed and very biased bureaucrats. If “experts” determine that you are “an unprivileged enemy belligerent” and if “the Secretary of Defense and the Attorney General after consultation with the Director of National Intelligence, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency” agree, well, you are clearly and indeed a very bad guy. Of course, no one has ever accused bureaucrats of devotion to either the truth or accuracy. Nor are they known for thinking outside the box and challenging their fellows, especially when everyone else’s head is already nodding.

Here is a thought I had yesturday

Our school children are being taught, pacifisum, tollerance, non bullying, non baligerence,no peer pressure & every other non violent way to live & respond to an oppressive social network ..We all know life has demands ..
Is this teaching tacktic chosen to feed our kids, a dumbing down of defensive brain waves & mechanism of thought? Is it a calculated control plan, to keep the children from learning, by daily practice, any defensive mechanism capability..
Train up a child in the way you want them to respond & they will automaticly be programed not to resist...Is this where we are at, while our gov't & teachers teach by intollerence & intimidation & peer pressure.?..Forced by those in power to subjigate the masses?

WHAT did your child learn today?

Bump...

Thanks for my next big research project. I'd like to read and blog about this bill. "Enemy belligerents" could be any of us, I suspect.

Look up the definition of "treason" in the Constitution

McCain and his cronies are declaring war on the American people. They will reap the whirlwind.

Good thing McCain is not president.

McCain and Lieberman are two senators that need to be gotten rid of.

If this passes, and I am apprehended, I would use whatever force necessary to prevent be incarcerated.

These are our domestic

These are our domestic enemies: public servants who deliver our nation into a totalitarian dictatorship. And domestic enemies are more dangerous than foreign enemies.

Middle Eastern terrorists are not destroying our nation. That is being done by our own politicians. Just imagine if the old Soviet Union was still in operation. We would wonder if these cretins were agents of the USSR. It's the same agenda.

Who said Communism was dead. It's alive and well in Washington, DC.

McCain has been in the senate way too long...

He never should have been there to start with and now that he has completely lost his mind...well, maybe the good people of Arizona will stop feeling like they owe him something because he was a POW so long. He has gotten kid glove treatment for decades and now its time for him to go! And I wish he would take his sidekick Lieberman with him....

bumping--

good read--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Hate to point out a technicality....

but the word is un-a-lien-able

un = not

not-a-lien-able or
rights which are not "lien-able"

as opposed to

in-a-lien-able

or currently IN A "lien-able" state

Hope that makes it clearer.

If I knew my Latin a little better I wouldn't have made that

...mistake. Thanks for the correction and explanation. I think it's amazing that the Founders like Madison, Jefferson, Franklin all knew Latin and Greek, and probably French, German, and smatterings of other languages too. What learned men!

McCain et al Traitors: a Letter to the Sergeant-at-Arms

A Re-Affirmation of Our Sixth Amendment Rights, This Overthrow is of the Constitution is Treason. A letter to the Sergeant at Arms of the United States Senate concerning S. 3081 "Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act":

Bill Pickle
Sergeant at Arms
S-151, US Senate Office 151
Washington, DC

(202)224-2341

Whereas, the first duty of all Constitutional officers who swear The Oath is to "protect, uphold and defend the United States Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic,"

Whereas, after 9/11 the federal government has steadily trod upon our rights under the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution, the right to a jury trial no matter what the charge, which began on May 8th, 2002, upon the arrest of American citizen Jose Padilla, who was designated "enemy combatant" in his own land under the tissue-thin claim of wartime powers in the first war declared to have "no end,"

Whereas we lend no credence whatsoever to fallacious, odious arguments which betray the bedrock principle of a presumption of innocence before the law, secured in our Bill of Rights by dint of sacrifice on ground named Lexington, Yorktown, Bunker Hill, Valley Forge, Ticondaroga, and others,

Whereas we have not forgotten these sacrifices, written in blood on battlefields,

Whereas, the claim to authority to deprive any American of his or her Sixth Amendment right to a jury trial, with counsel, no matter what the charge, is a wishful fantasy of tyrants,

Whereas, the claim that "terrorists" do not deserve Sixth Amendment rights is bankrupt prima facie, since a determination of guilt must precede the bearing of that guilt,

Whereas, the application of Ex parte Quirin by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in the case of Jose Padilla is a flawed application of precedent, since an indefinite, never-ending "war on terror" has no precedent. The standard for a precedent to apply in law is "for the facts of the case to be substantially similar." The present "war" bears no similarity to the World War II context of Ex parte Quirin, since the enemy cannot be seen, cannot be determined to be defeated, and possesses no command from whom to accept surrender. In all facets the "war on terror" is a novel set of facts under law.

Whereas a war which imposes the rules of the battlefield upon ordinary citizens in their own land indefinitely is a dream of tyrants from time immemorial,,

We Patriots hereby call an end to these stealthy and determined incursions upon our Sixth Amendment rights, which began on May 8, 2002 and is now taking its boldest form in a call by certain senators of the Republic, who have sworn the oath to defend the Constitution, and instead seek to subvert what is the very bedrock of the Constitution, our "inalienable" rights under the Bill of Rights.

The Constitution can be changed only by Constitutional Convention. Those who propose to change it by any other means are derelict in their duty to defend her. For the clear overthrow of our bedrock rights attempted in the "S. 3081 Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act," We direct the Sergeant at Arms of the United States Senate to place Sen. John McCain, Sen. Scott Brown, Sen. Saxby Chambliss, Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), Sen. George LeMieux (R-FL), Sen. Joseph Lieberman, Sen. Jefferson Sessions, Sen. John Thune, Sen. David Vitter, Sen. Roger Wicker under arrest to be charged with the crime of treason, as "domestic" enemies of the Constitution as the Oath of the arresting officer requires.

We say again to all tyrants who would follow in their path of treasonous intrigue against We the People: "Don't Tread on Me."

Great letter!

Somebody be sure and bump this later on. The day shift needs to take it and spread it all over the country!

Thanks, James_Madison_Lives!

Thank you for writing this up (?) and posting it!!

If you do not make this fantastic letter a post topic in the next 10 minutes... then I will!!

A fine piece of writing like this is getting buried down here for too few to see! ;-)

When will it be enough?

Many Americans are figuring out that we have rampant treason taking place in congress. The destruction of America is the top priority of these Illuminati/Masonic pigs.

The one thing they fear more than anything else is if people start uniting under a single cause that will expose and thwart their plans.

It is no exaggeration to say that the future freedom and well being hinges on our collective ability to figure out that we, as a nation, do not need to borrow from banks.

We need to take back the creation and control of our money as a sovereign state. We have become a client state to the international banking cartel.

We can break these chains any time we want.

Yes! And instead of 'Enemy Congress'

I suggest my alternate title to the piece:
