A small lesson in how Progressives scheme our legislative system to their benefit and none of our own.
First, they get legislation passed within other, more important legislation like the annual Defense Appropriations Bill that says, hey, despite the guarantees of our Constitution, it’s ok if we arrest all al Qaeda operatives without benefit of due process, merely on an accusation by some “authority” although that “authority” is left to the President to define. I mean, it’s clearly spelled out in SB1867 sec. 1031c who the “covered” persons to be subjected to this unlawful treatment are. For now.
In sec. 1032b we read that “The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not apply to citizens of the United States.” Fine, huh? No.
Not only no, but HELL NO.
Note this bill does not say US citizens are exempted or excluded. Very important terminology. But, wait, there’s more.
Somewhere down the road, a year or less probably, inserted in some other, wholly unrelated 2000+ page bill will be a little amendment to the definition of “covered persons” in this bill. Then “covered persons” will be redefined to mean anyone who disagrees with or opposes the establishment interests of either the Democrat or Republican Progressives in Congress currently selling us out for their own personal interests. But no one will draw attention to this little amendment, and since you and I will never know when they will insert this little provision into some other huge monstrosity of legislation, we now have to watch them even closer.
After all, do you trust Congress? I thought not. Neither do I. Look how easily so many Senators and House Representatives were walked AWAY from the Constitution.
Mark my words. With the passage of SB1867 in the Senate and its twin bill in the House, both of which are now set to be reconciled before being sent to the President to sign, the Progressives have opened a door to military takeover. They know it, so do I. And now you know it, too.
Since when is the Executive Branch to be exalted over the Legislative or Judicial?
Progressives have only been working this same scheme to dismantle our Constitution since 1913 and the Federal Reserve Act that gave us all the parasite to host known as The Fed.
Patriots never stand down–they stand up.
Lock and load. Keep your powder dry.
