After NDAA Amendment, Indefinite Detention Still the Law! Time to throw out about two-thirds of Congress!

[TIME TO KICK THE SORRY ARSES OF ABOUT TWO-THIRDS OF OUR REPRESENTATIVES, TO THE CURB. THIS MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL!]

-------------------------------

Originally published at The New American.

In a shameful display of disregard for the Constitution and for liberty, on Friday, the House of Representatives voted to perpetuate the president’s power to indefinitely detain American citizens.

By a vote of 238-182, members of Congress rejected the amendment offered by Representatives Adam Smith (D-Washington) and Justin Amash (R-Michigan) (left and right, respectively in photo montage at left) that would have repealed the indefinite detention provision passed overwhelmingly last year as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2012.

The Fiscal Year 2013 NDAA retains the indefinite detention provisions, as well as the section permitting prisoners to be transferred from civilian jurisdiction to the custody of the military.

Ha.. what a fool

If there was ever a time for Flip Romney to change his position... this was a golden opportunity to do it.

If I am reading it right

they also are legalizing propaganda now. (not that all we hear and read in the msm is propaganda though).

The amendment has bipartisan sponsorship by Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) and Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash) and would essentially legalize propaganda by the government within the United States. Buzzfeed reports it is an amendment that would “strike the current ban on domestic dissemination,” meaning both the the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act in 1987 would be overturned.

This year is make or break.

This year is make or break. Its our last chance to save our country. We need to start taking control of our government from within. Dr. Paul is only the tip. Each of us have a duty to save the rest from their ignorance, if not, it may be too late for all of us.

I respectfully disagree...

This group wants to get rid of everyone in Congress, good and bad. Presumably, it even advocates defeating Justin Amash, the Liberty Congressman from Michigan who sponsored the anti-detention amendment. We need to replace the bad with the good, rather than indiscriminately seeking to fire them all.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Like Dr. Paul said in Minnisota they actually made NDAA 2013

Worse. Before detainment was upon the suggestion of the exec, now it's upon orders. But they're not going to use it - that's why they passed it! Right- all of these "freshman 123" who voted to lock you up and throw away the key... I'm sure you enjoyed your short stay as our public servants. I guess it will take 12 years to clean out the servile senate, and that's assuming we are successful. There were only 7 origianl senators who voted against NDAA2012. DEEP tyranny.

I sorta wish

the smith-amash amendment was instead a clean bill repealing that awful section of the NDAA. That way, the tea party traitors would be on record, with no plausible deniability. They would have had a very hard time voting against it. It could even pass.

Well the Tea Party traitors are still on record...

If they voted NO on the Smith-Amash, then they are traitors. I am going to find that list and publish it here.
