Ron Paul - Who Else Is on Obama's Secret Kill List 10-10-11

http://youtu.be/7_uy29aFzCU

A Dangerous Precedent

According to the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution, Americans are never to be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. The Constitution is not some aspirational statement of values, allowing exceptions when convenient, but rather, it is the law of the land. It is the basis of our Republic and our principal bulwark against tyranny.

Does anyone else here ever

Does anyone else here ever wonder if these people even really existed? Maybe they just invent enemies out of thin air to attach a face to the cause and keep the fear alive. Maybe then they can say 'hey look we just saved you guys by killing these bad guys." They can market test the public's reaction to assassinating citizens without due process. They can gauge any backlash and tighten up on the problem areas for when they really get the program rolling.

Remember when the drug war was just some little isolated incidents in far away countries and then little isolated incidents with individuals here...and now look at the mess we are in.

Play the game do they or do

Play the game do they or do they not and what is the best action to be taken off of either answer?

Modern Day Witch Hunt!

Nothing but a modern day witch hunt to placate the mob into thinking those that are in charge are keeping them safe from the boogeyman while robbing them of their only recourse to defend their lives from those that would deprive them of it and of their basic ability to so!

Witch hunts do not serve justice because anyone with an ear or benefit to law enforcement, politicians, or other means can bear false witness on individuals that they find dangerous, intimidating, in the way, or just plain don't like and can pressure to have them killed or incarcerated.

The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution had a design to stop this kind of nonsense and it was just abandoned with the peoples blessing.

Why Why Why does mankind have to go through this lesson again?

Right on

the sound money. Go Ron!

the control grid is already in place

Is it really Obama or Shadow Government CIA?
Tracking and surveillance is in place.

IMPEACH! This is just a

IMPEACH!
This is just a horrible thing Obama allowed.

Or

would it be more appropriate to have him tried for murder? And why not racketeering, too.

Right.

Is blowing someone to pieces with a missile any different than blowing their brains out with a pistol?

Dictator Obama pulled the trigger.

Hmm...well, like Stalin said,

"If only one man dies of hunger, that is a tragedy. If millions die, that's only statistics."

If one American gets assassinated, that's murder. But if hundreds of thousands die because of Obama's decisions..people WILL say, that's just "statistics."

The blindness Americans have about how closely America is resembling Nazi Germany and Communist Russia is almost complete.

A Dangerous Precedent

According to the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution, Americans are never to be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. The Constitution is not some aspirational statement of values, allowing exceptions when convenient, but rather, it is the law of the land. It is the basis of our Republic and our principal bulwark against tyranny.

Last week’s assassination of two American citizens, Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan, is an outrage and a criminal act carried out by the President and his administration. If the law protecting us against government-sanctioned assassination can be voided when there is a “really bad American”, is there any meaning left to the rule of law in the United States? If, as we learned last week, a secret government committee, not subject to congressional oversight or judicial review, can now target certain Americans for assassination, under what moral authority do we presume to lecture the rest of the world about protecting human rights? Didn’t we just bomb Libya into oblivion under the auspices of protecting the civilians from being targeted by their government? Timothy McVeigh was certainly a threat, as were Nidal Hassan and Jared Lee Loughner. They killed people in front of many witnesses. They took up arms against their government in a literal way, yet were still afforded trials. These constitutional protections are in place because our Founders realized it is a very serious matter to deprive any individual of life or liberty. Our outrage against even the obviously guilty is not worth the sacrifice of the rule of law. Al-Awlaki has been outspoken against the United States and we are told he encouraged violence against Americans. We do not know that he actually committed any acts of violence. Ironically, he was once invited to the Pentagon as part of an outreach to moderate Muslims after 9/11. As the US attacks against Muslims in the Middle East and Central Asia expanded, it is said that he became more fervent and radical in his opposition to US foreign policy.

Many cheer this killing because they believe that in a time of war, due process is not necessary - not even for citizens, and especially not for those overseas. However, there has been no formal declaration of war and certainly not one against Yemen. The post-9/11 authorization for force would not have covered these two Americans because no one is claiming they had any connection to that attack. Al-Awlaki was on a kill list compiled by a secret panel within President Obama’s National Security Council and Justice Department. How many more Americans citizens are on that list? They won’t tell us. What are the criteria? They won’t tell us. Where is the evidence? They won’t tell us.

Al-Awlaki's father tried desperately to get the administration to at least allow his son to have legal representation to challenge the “kill” order. He was denied. Rather than give him his day in court, the administration, behind closed doors, served as prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner.The most worrisome aspect of this is that any new powers this administration accrues will serve as precedents for future administrations. Even those who completely trust this administration must understand that if this usurpation of power and denial of due process is allowed to stand, these powers will remain to be expanded on by the next administration and then the next. Will you trust them? History shows that once a population gives up its rights, they are not easily won back. Beware.

Thank you drheyde

I was hoping to get to read this since my computer is slow and doesn't have any love lost for videos. You made my day!

DownsizeDc has a way to deal with this: e-mail your congressman through their "Educate The Powerful" system.

Impeach the president! is the specific campaign.To use the downsizer system, you do have to register, but they make it very easy. They also have a request for donation after using their system.

Pretty decent looking website.

I'll check it out.

It only take a few publicized assassinations before

we will ALL be afraid to speak out against Obama.

They don't have to kill all his enemies.

Shoot one bird on a clothesline and they all fly away. Its a great way for Obama to keep all his enemies in line.

How true: "They don't have to kill all his enemies."

It is highly unlikely that (the REAL) Osama binLdn was killed as it was announced. And as for Al-Awlaki: we are only TOLD that he was such a bad fellow he was droned to pieces by the all-mighty Obm.

Obm / CIA / MIC's propaganda objectives can be achieved, when (and only when) the USA populace BELIEVE in such announcements and get really scared and intimidated to SPEAK OUT against them. (Are we still following the 1984 script?)

Dr. Paul's weekly classroom

Very timely, now that the hype has worn off people should be ready to listen. These updates are the best educators.

Please use the original video, it already has 5k views!

Great idea for the campaign

Instead of the static photo and rather lifeless reading, what if Dr. Paul were addressing a small group of students, and each student could ask 1 question after his mini-lecture, with a brief response from Dr. Paul? It would get a LOT more interest I think, and show Ron Paul at his best, speaking spontaneously and directly to individuals. It wouldn't cost much, but the benefits of Dr. Paul's "weekly classroom" could be enormous.

Thank you, Dr.Paul, for defending the Constitution!

What really bothers me is that Obm admin is not only claiming to have the authority to be the ultimate prosecutor, judge, jury and executioner, but also the right to USE the entire government apparatus merely to serve as a propaganda machine for his bid to gain a second term of presidency.
