Actually, The Newest Version Of NDAA Makes It EASIER To Detain Citizens Indefinitely

At first glance it looked like the 2013 version National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) did more to protect Americans against indefinite detention. We and several other news organizations reported as much yesterday.

But on closer examination the new NDAA actually makes it EASIER to detain citizens indefinitely.

Here's the added clause in question:

“Nothing in the AUMF or the 2012 NDAA shall be construed to deny the availability of the writ of habeas corpus or to deny any Constitutional rights in a court ordained or established by or under Article III of the Constitution for any person who is lawfully in the United States when detained pursuant to the AUMF and who is otherwise entitled to the availability of such writ or such rights.”

Economic Collapse

The reason they want all this in place is for when the economy falls, but when this happens, our government will fall as it is a corporation.

Have you checked out this video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYleC7l86ys&feature=plcp this video was told to me by my uncle in Nebraska.

There is a Republic site for every state in the union. Find yours.

Here is my state: http://www.republicfororegon.org/

The main site, http://www.republicfortheunitedstates.org/ is under maintenance right now, but should be back up soon.


I disagree

I really think people are interpreting this bill in the most negative light imaginable.
