This Duck Dynasty situation is actually a good vehicle

To talk with people about the NDAA amongst other things. Didn't Rahm Emanuel say, "never let a good crisis go to waste?"

Yeah, yeah, DD isn't a crisis to us, but to others it might be. So I jumped on the bandwagon for DD to get credibility with the sheeple out there that are temporarily awake over it.

A small window of opportunity to push the conversation in things that matter in our world of politics.

It's worked well so far.

So Walter Jones, who was just in the news for

opening up an investigation into 9/11 cover-ups, voted Aye. Claims to be a big supporter of Ron Paul.

To think I was just on here last week bragging on how proud I was to have donated to his re-election campaign.

Yes the Duck Dynasty and

Yes the Duck Dynasty and other Hollywood antics are probably mis-directions to keep us from paying attention to what the thieves in DC are doing while we're distracted.

But here's my problem with that. If they act against our will and our rights, and they do it while purposefully taking advantage of the times we're not paying attention, why the hell to we assume we have to obey what they accomplish?

I've got an idea! Let's just ignore them all together, talk about whatever the heck we want, and when they show up to tax us or control us, tell them to take a leap!

NOT a government distraction

Hate to say it but this has nothing to do with a government distraction. Most people care more about Duck Dynasty than NDAA. Most people have no clue what the NDAA is, but most know everything about Duck Dynasty. The reality is that people have been taught not to criticize their government. We are taught that the government is the only entity, along with the church, that can do righteous deeds. So if the government wants to implement the NDAA it is because it is good for the people; well at least that is what most Americans believe.

When "Slick Willy" Clinton got caught up in the sex scandal, people enjoyed watching and hearing about that so the news promoted it even further. The MSM presents what the people are most interested in watching. They want to make money and so they sell what is most popular. Sadly NDAA is not a very popular topic to discuss.

So what exactly makes this

So what exactly makes this NDAA worse than the last 2?

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

"What exactly makes this NDAA worse than the last 2?"

Finally, there is in the NDAA for 2014 a frightening fusion of the federal government’s constant surveillance of innocent Americans and the assistance it will give to justifying the indefinite detention of anyone labeled an enemy of the regime.
.
Section 1071 of the version of the 2014 NDAA approved by the House and Senate committees this week expands on the scope of surveillance established by the Patriot Act and the Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF).
.
Section 1071(a) authorizes the secretary of defense to "establish a center to be known as the 'Conflict Records Research Center.’” According to the text of the latest version of the NDAA, the center's task would be to compile a “digital research database including translations and to facilitate research and analysis of records captured from countries, organizations, and individuals, now or once hostile to the United States.”
.
In order to accomplish the center’s purpose, the secretary of defense will create an information exchange in cooperation with the director of national intelligence.
.
Key to the functioning of this information exchange will be the collection of “captured records.” Section 1071(g)(1), defines a captured record as "a document, audio file, video file, or other material captured during combat operations from countries, organizations, or individuals, now or once hostile to the United States.”
.
When read in conjunction with the provision of the AUMF that left the War on Terror open-ended and the prior NDAAs’ classification of the United States as a battleground in that unconstitutional war, and you’ve got a powerful combination that can knock out the entire Bill of Rights.
.
Finally, when all the foregoing is couched within the context of the revelations regarding the dragnet surveillance programs of the NSA, it becomes evident that anyone’s phone records, e-mail messages, browsing history, text messages, and social media posts could qualify as a “captured record.”

Thanks BT... But I don't

Thanks BT...

But I don't think there is anything new that isn't already being done anyhow. Being able get rid of people without trial or charges...doesn't get much worse than that.

They've likely been doing these things for the last 10 years, but just now getting around to putting out some language to make it seem all legal like.

Ya they are doing "oh we need

Ya they are doing "oh we need to add this sexual assault on the military amendment to it" under these women congressman from the house. I just got an email from my congressman Louis Frankel about it saying that she wants to attach it to it. I emailed her and called her to give her an earful about it. I said you need to find another way to use that amendment because that ndaa needs to be repealed. Though I am going to read this amendment to see what's up with it and if there were any changes that were neglected to be mentioned to the rest of that awful law.

Homeland security statement: patriotism is now considered terrorism.
I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

Hogwash

They don't need a distraction in order to pass the NDAA. They will do it in broad daylight for all the world to see.

Congress Rushing to Approve

Congress Rushing to Approve 2014 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)

Such an immense grant of power is not only unconscionable, but unconstitutional, as well.
.
Regardless of promises to the contrary made every year since 2011 by President Obama, the language of the NDAA places every citizen of the United States within the universe of potential “covered persons.” Any American could one day find himself or herself branded a “belligerent” and thus subject to the complete confiscation of his or her constitutional civil liberties and to nearly never-ending incarceration in a military prison.

Senate Passes NDAA 2014 via Fast Tracking

Senate Passes NDAA 2014 via Fast Tracking, President To Sign
Updated with roll call...

Andrew V Pontbriand
Activist Post

Late Thursday night, the Senate passed the NDAA for Fiscal Year 2014, in a sweeping bill now being sent to the president which reports suggest he will sign.

The bill, is infamous for its language on indefinite detention, and "disappearing" of American citizens. Once again, the bill was past via Fast-Tracking while most of the country was sidelined on the Phil Robertson issue with Duck Dynasty.

The bill, now being sent to President Obama, also leaves out an amendment by Sen. Gillibrand on sexual assault prosecution, which in and of itself is curious. The bill passed the Senate in an 85-14 count, with the roll-call unavailable at this time.

“It’s a failure of leadership on the part of the majority leader,” Arizona Sen. John McCain told reporters, echoing Republican colleagues who said the accelerated process was designed to prevent tough votes on Iran sanctions and other controversial issues.

Is it time to storm the gates

Is it time to storm the gates yet? Unbelievable.
