More Chess Pieces Move – Obama Lawyers Say U.S. Citizens Are Legit Military Targets

Obama Legal Vultures say Citizens can be targeted for killing if they are at war with US government.

In conjunction with the post below, todays offering from the Regime is a statement from Obama’s “National Security lawyers” that U.S. Citizens are legit military targets if they are at war with the country:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Top national security lawyers in the Obama administration say U.S. citizens are legitimate military targets when they take up arms with al-Qaida….

….Johnson said only the executive branch, not the courts, are equipped to make decisions about who qualifies as an enemy.

I have no problem with our armed forces taking out any American Muslim engaged in combat against them overseas.  They are, what we at one time would call traitors – and deserving of the consequences they earn by going to war against us and our troops while allying themselves with the Jihadist enemy.

Two disturbing things to note:

1 – Obama wanted Jihad terrorists to be tried in U.S. Courts at taxpayer expense and given a trial – even though they are NOT U.S. Citizens.  Obama even wanted 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed to have a public trial in NYC.   But Obama now wants the military to be used to kill American Citizens ANYWHERE on his orders??  Anyone slightly bothered by this?  Anyone see what is being set-up against us by this regime?

2 – Given his regimes continuous efforts to refer to TEA Party Conservatives as ‘Terrorists”, it is NOT a stretch to see that this chess piece being moved into place is being put there for use AGAINST ANYONE OBAMA DECLARES AN ENEMY.

I will again refer to the quote from the official of the Obama Regime: “only the executive branch, not the courts, are equipped to make decisions about who qualifies as an enemy”

Let that sink in.  They assert ONLY Obama, not the courts, not Congress – are ‘equipped’ to make decisions about who qualifies as an enemy.

Wrong.  The Constitution grants the Executive authority to act as Commander In Chief to wage war, they do not give him the authority to DECLARE who is an enemy to wage war.  Only Congress has that power, and Congress can defund any action the Executive is waging should they choose.  But they won’t.  More than half are allied with the Marxists and the rest are spineless cowards hoping to get payola crumbs as they ride the coattails of a despotic regime.

I see a pattern of set-up here.  One all genocidal and maniacal regimes end up engaging in – the war and extermination of a tyrant’s own people who he considers an enemy, and that piece has just been put on the board for that exact intended purpose.

This regime has blatantly said, the Dictator-In-Chief has the power to decide who is an enemy, and can order their death at his whim.  Without arrest, trial or recourse.

So in two days we have the establishment AS POLICY OF THE RULING CLASS REGIME, that American citizens can be detained indefinitely without trial, and/or killed by military forces on decree of the Executive of who he deems is an enemy.

Welcome to Amerika, Soviet style.

It’s what the Hope and Change was really all about.

Despotic Tyranny Makes It’s Next Move

Bill Authorizing Indefinite Detention of U.S. Citizens without charge or trial passes Senate.

If safeguarding our liberties could be viewed as a game on a chess board, we have just been checkmated by the power in D.C.

And few to none are even aware of what just happened or can care less what ramifications this will lead to.

The radical and Marxist Left in league with the Ruling Class of oligarchs in our country – using the springboard of “national security” are handing eager tyrants the very irons and shackles that they can use on any Americans this regime deems an ‘enemy’.  Congress is about to grant Obama the power to use the military in order to detain any individuals, including American citizens, without trial or due process, indefinitely.

Senator Rand Paul (R – KY) discusses the insidiousness of this measure that passed:

The bill, the National Defense Authorization Act, S. 1867 was drafted in secret by Senators Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) and approved in a closed-door committee meeting without any public oversight or comment.  Senator Mark Udall’s amendment to strip the language of indefinite detention as applied to American citizens was defeated.  They of course did this ‘secret’ behind-closed-door drafting of legislation before.  Recall ObamaCare and how that was written and passed in the dead of night and in secret.  So desperate are the Ruling Class Tyrants, that they were willing to ‘deem’ such ‘secret’ laws they write behind closed doors as passed without the ability for the congress to read these bills, or without even a vote if they so choose.

This regime, from the Dictator-in-Chief to the Politburo Congress, now marches as it sees fit, even provided cover and license by a Federal Judge who earlier in the month ruled that “Congress be free to forge national solutions to national problems, no matter how local — or seemingly passive” which essentially says Congress has the freedom to do whatever it wants, for the good of the people as they see fit, whether the people want it or not.

Add another Ruling Class jerk like Colin Powell, lamenting that Congress needs to be able to work ‘quietly’ – without the American people looking over their shoulders – and you can easily see that all moves being made against liberty are leading us to that final checkmate.

All of this illustrates that indeed, we now live in a post-Constitutional America where the push is into a European-styled Soviet Socialism is reaching the end game.  And like Chess – as one who studies strategy and patterns, the Ruling Class have positioned all their pieces for the final strike.  They control our food, from seed to plate.  Our water.  Ability to hunt or fish. With this Defense Authorization with the language intact – they now have the power to detain you indefinitely, without trial or recourse.  Just as the Soviet’s did with their dissidents.

Welcome to the post constitutional nation that now deserves to be called “Amerika”.

Why We Fight – 9-11 Remembered/Meet My Little Friend

On the 10th Anniversary of the 9-11 Attacks, I decided to link to a video done back in 2007 in gratitude for brothers fighting on the front lines, as our own political discourse in the USA became muddled with the anti-war/Code Pink/Ron Paul protesters. The morale of our troops was dispiriting when they read what was happening back home.  My impetus was to give them a boost and let them know there are plenty of us who understand why they are there fighting, how long Islam has been waging war on the USA, and how much we are praying for their mission, and their safe return home after destroying the enemy.

Dear Mr. Obama: Freedom Is Not A Mistake, and Worth The Price

While this has been turned into a campaign ad for John McCain BY the person himself – the underlying message is to counter Barrack The Hussein Obama’s charge that the war on terror was a “mistake’, and therefore this message is powerful, and right on the money.

This man is someone The Annointed One will never appreciate, comprehend or understand.

But the rest of America does, and another reason why Obama is unfit for Commander In Chief.

America The Evil…

wereevil.jpg

Bob Parks hits one out of the park with this observation, of which I wholeheartedly concur. In today’s hyper-sensitive cultural backwardness, common sense has taken a vacation with wisdom it seems, and Mr. Parks here illustrates why the Left and the anti-war brigades are bankrupting our morale and consigning us to surrender.

America The Evil

America is an evil nation with evil people. That is, except for our leftists, right?

Whether it be another lawsuit alleging the mistreatment of enemy combatants, who wear no official uniform, or any number of documentaries produced that make America the mother of all evil empires, I’m beyond tired of seeing the ungrateful protected by our government, the very government they gleefully excoriate daily.

In this war on terror, I’ve given up hope that just once someone on the left would publicly show as much disdain for those who strap bombs on themselves to blow up civilians, and those who kidnap civilians and cut their heads off with knives, as they vilify their own soldiers whom they claim to care so much about.

“Blackwater is not the only private U.S. corporation facing lawsuits for alleged abuses in Iraq, on Monday hundreds of Iraqis held at Abu Ghraib prison filed a lawsuit against the private military contractor CACI.

“The suit alleges the Iraqis were repeatedly sodomized, threatened with rape, kept naked in their cells, subjected to electric shock, attacked by unmuzzled dogs and subjected to serious pain inflicted on sensitive body parts while being held at Abu Ghraib.”

Tell you what.

If I was an enemy combatant detained today in an American jail, I’d being saying that I was repeatedly sodomized, threatened with rape, kept naked in my cell, subjected to electric shock, attacked by unmuzzled dogs, and subjected to serious pain inflicted on sensitive body parts if I knew some bleeding heart American lawyer would believe me and vigorously defend me.

Despite the fact that coercion (and warrantless wiretaps) was used to extract information that’s thwarted many a terrorist plot to kill civilians all around the world, America is continually being declared the enemy by citizens of our own country.

And when a bomb goes off somewhere in the world, in a crowded marketplace or discothèque, our same liberals never decry the senseless violence perpetrated by ideological sadists. They’re occupied looking for another American serviceman to charge with atrocities.

“The suit alleges that employees of CACI directed soldiers to mistreat prisoners at Abu Ghraib and that employees of the company were involved in the wrongful deaths of three Iraqi men at Abu Ghraib.”

Of course while chanting they support the troops, the lawsuits alleging torture and murder puts a bulls eye on every man and woman serving overseas, as well as the millions of civilians around the world who are targeted by an enemy that seeks our domination and has said as much numerous times.

Documentaries that point the finger of guilt at us achieves that same goal, while ignoring altogether those who cut of fingers, rape, stone women to death, and whose writings describe death to infidels in ways that would make Abu Ghraib look like Romper Room. I believe these atrocities and death wishes are ignored because our liberals are justifiably afraid of our enemy, and going after the “evil” United States is the cowardly, but easy way out.

One of these days, we will not extract all the necessary information needed to avert a mass terror attack. It may happen in the United States, and it may happen in any number of nations around the world. But I hope those who protect and serve our enemy will wake up in hell, knowing that their intentional, partisan attempts to vilify the one nation in the world, so evil, that millions are standing their place to immigrate to, have worked.

The blood of the hundreds, if not thousands or millions, of dead will not be on our hands. They’ll be on theirs, and the problem is they’re too narcissistic to see that what they’re doing is putting the world at risk.

All in the name of people who would cut their big heads off in a heartbeat.

Thanks you Mr. Parks, for stating what needed to be said. The Left and the Anti-war bunch in our midst do not understand what you have said, they do NOT want to understand what you have said and would rather castigate you as a “Neocon” or worse for daring to disagree with licking the palms of our enemies and blaming ourselves for their existence.

Iran Declares NIE Report An American Surrender

This is why I hate the anti-war movement and the zombies of Ron Paul. They tout the NIE report as vindication of their cause to paint America and Bush as the bullies and HAND Jihadist madmen like Iran’s Ahmadinejad and mullahs who are preparing the Muslim world for the conquest of the Great and Little Satan, victory.

Iran says U.S. report a “declaration of surrender”

TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran’s president said on Sunday the publication of a U.S. intelligence report saying Iran had halted a nuclear weapons program in 2003 amounted to a “declaration of surrender” by Washington in its row with Tehran.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also dismissed in an interview with state television the prospect of new U.N. sanctions against Iran over its refusal to halt sensitive atomic work.

“It is too far-fetched,” he said when asked whether he expected the U.N. Security Council to impose fresh sanctions on Iran following two such resolutions since last December.

Ahmadinejad, who often rails against the West, told a rally earlier this month that the December 3 publication of the U.S. National Intelligence Estimate was a “victory” for Iran.

He said on Sunday: “It was in fact a declaration of surrender … It was a positive action by the U.S. administration to change their attitude and it was a correct move.”

Washington is still pushing for more sanctions on Iran despite the U.S. intelligence report, which also said Tehran was continuing to master skills needed to make nuclear weapons. U.S. President George W. Bush said Iran was still a danger.

An exiled opposition group, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), last week said Iran shut down its nuclear weapons program in 2003 but said restarted it a year later, dispersing equipment to thwart international inspectors.

Iran insists its nuclear program is peaceful and designed to make electricity. It says it has never had a nuclear weapons program.

“It would be beneficial for both Iran and them (the West) to cooperate with Iran,” Ahmadinejad said. “Of course it would be more to their benefit than Iran’s.”

Iran regularly calls for a change in behavior from the United States, which cut diplomatic ties with Iran in 1980 after radical students seized the U.S. embassy and took diplomats hostage during the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Grasping At The Straws of Torture and Treason for Power

waterboardtorture.jpg

In the desperate efforts to relive the glory days of both the 1960’s Hippie/Anti-war movment and Watergate, House and Senate Democrats are going beserk trying to recreate the only victory they’ve had in their entire lives.

The CIA interrogation tapes of Al Qaeda operatives, that have been subsequently destroyed, is the latest hoped for “Gotcha!” of a party and Congress that has accomplished absolutely NOTHING since it won power in 2006 except attempt after attempt to destroy a president and his party by securing defeat in a war they authorized, and weaken America in the contest against our enemies.

Much media trumpeting of the destroyed CIA tapes of U.S. interrogation techniques of Al Qaeda prisoners has reached air-raid siren status among the Left. In predictable fashion, the Democrat Leadership feined outrage and made public spectacles falling all over themselves in talking-point heaven to compare the destroyed tapes to the “18 minute gap” in Nixon’s Watergate tapes and rushing to microphones to be the first to demand a Special Prosecutor investigate:

Democratic Senate leaders compared the CIA’s actions to the Watergate scandal.

Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., asked, “What would cause the CIA to take this action? The answer is obvious — coverup.” “What is at stake here goes to the heart of the rule of law and justice in America,” said Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill.

This afternoon, Durbin wrote Attorney General Michael Mukasey urging him to investigate a possible “obstruction of justice.”

But as we are discovering – this is simply another straw of desperation that is filled with deliberate hypocrisy and false outrage for political consumption by the Left. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.), Sens. Bob Graham (D-Fla.), John D. Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.), as well as Rep. Porter J. Goss (R-Fla.) and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan) all witnessed the CIA waterboarding technique in September of 2002, as members of the House Intelligence Commitee and NONE of them objected to the procedure. In fact, they asked whether or not the technique was “strong enough” to break the will of captured Jihadists.

Today however, in another flamboyant act to stage political theater, two of these individuals; Rockerfeller and Harman were also aware that the interrogation tapes were scheduled for erasure. Rockerfeller admits finding out that the tapes were destroyed in Novermber 2006. OVER A YEAR AGO. Harman wrote a letter asking that the tapes NOT be destroyed, but learned that they already had been. We can only assume that the other leading members of this Oversight Committee were also aware of that at the time.

But now, all-of-a-sudden, a year later – it’s a “scandal” with Watergate possibilities???

As the new York Times duly notes:

“Jane Harman also knew of the intention to destroy the tapes, and she at least ‘urged’ the C.I.A. in writing not to do it.” But he notes, “But when she found out the C.I.A. had destroyed the tapes, where was Harman’s press conference? Where were the congressional hearings?”

Indeed, where WAS the press conference and calls for hearings a year ago?? Was it not important? Did it not rise to the level of Watergate status last year during the Election cycle?

Ah yes – there was this little thing called national security at one time in this country, and Intelligence Matters are restricted to high security clearance – of which the eight members of the Congressional Intelligence Committee possessed and were restricted in discussing. By law they are prohibited from acknowledging or discussing anything they learn on the Intelligence Committee until such information is declassified. To Democrats, “Classified” under a Republican Administration means “Coverup” and as such, “classififed” is just an obstacle to be overcome. Much like they treat the Constitution.

Consider all the “leaks” we’ve had about our ‘intelligence’ apparatus of late – does anyone even allow the possibility that some of these creeps on this committee are engaging in treason and breaking the law by discussing what they are not allowed to discuss?? How else does such national intelligence matters get disseminated to willing members of the media for publication?

The entire notion of waterboarding being declared as “torture’ by this same bunch is nauseating in the extreme, since they were not sure if the technique was severe enough to break reticent Al Qaeda terrorists back in 2002. Yes. Not only were these same Democrats feigning outrage over “torture”, they watched the procedure and asked if the technique was strong enough to break hardened terrorists!

I don’t know about you – but after seeing the videos of slow beheadings of Americans at the hands of Al Qaeda, and how bodies of Americans are drug through streets and hung up by wire on bridges, the idea of a pitcher of water poured on my blindfolded face to get information about terrorist operations is not quite in the same universe of comparison. America apparently does not have the guts or stomach to do what is necessary to stop what our enemies clearly are more than willing to do to us. We would rather think ourselves moral and noble by treating barbarians who are plotting to kill us, like we would like to be treated in similar circumstance. Such a misguided sense of morality is not noble or American, it’s stupid. We can think ourselves better and moral all the day long, treating captured Jihadists like guests at the Hilton, and it will not make one iota’s difference to Al Qaeda terrorists.

But let’s talk about the rule of law as it pertains to intelligence gathering. If no one from the Gang of Eight committee ‘leaked’ the practice the CIA was engaged in on Sheik Khalid Mohammed, the entire world would not now be aware of America’s intelligence methods. And yet we hear Kennedy and Durbin pontificate endlessly about the “rule of law” when I am of the opinion that their own Democrat leaders were engaged in breaking it themselves by leaking intelligence information for use as a political weapon.

The Democrats demand an accounting. They demand hearings. They demand upholding the rule of law and adherance to morality. We hear them demand all these things when they knew of them in 2002. They charge criminal coverup, while some of us are still waiting for someone in Congress to raise an eyebrow over Sandy Berger’s theft of National Security Documents he stuffed into his pants.

The truth is in this day and age of our political fall from Christian Republic to Caligulan Rome – the means justifies the desired end result: absolute power. There is nothing sacred in politics, except the politcal weapon of Political Correctness, and then, it is selectively applied. Sandy Berger gets a pass for what would be a felony, just as his boss William The Impeached got a free pass over lying under oath to a grand jury. Democrat Congressmen can have oodles of cold hard cash stuffed into their freezers and investigations are called “racist” and “partisan witchunts”. But when it comes to Republicans or national security, there is no reverence for the country, or our sovereignty, or our security. All is fair game to achieve a political win, regardless of the consequences. Regardless if it results in our defeat in the face of Jihadists, regardless if it ends up as a bright sunrise over an American city some dark night in the future.
