THIS ISN'T DENYING IGNORANCE

The bill also states "...the President shall make the final determination" in the event of a disagreement between the secretary of defense and the
If the Secretary of defense says "dissenters" are, but the Attorney General says they are not.. the puppet party leader decides.
Application of the geneva convention is not absolute, final determination depends on the opinions of politicians and their appointed lackeys... and
there is NO due process to challenge "final determination".
I seem to recall bush and yoo formulating some brave new world opinions about torture not being torture as long as it's re-branded.. meaning there is
NOTHING stopping odumba et al from contorting geneva into a polished turd of their own.
obama might decide "belonging to a Party to the conflict" means political Party (Party is in caps).. or party leader could decide "belonging to a
party" means you're suspected of having a "good time", under this bill he can executive order anyone who tests positive for excessive fun in their
urine to be labeled a belligerent enemy.. having no rights means regardless of how stupid dear leaders final determination, it cant be challenged.
Aside from being pure evil, IMO, this is a desperate sign "the man" knows he's losing both power and influence.. his MSM propaganda machine gets
laughed at or ignored, his credibility a shambles... he can see it's time to shove a power grab tampon in the bleeding.
TPTB look nervous, otherwise they wouldn't be trying this hard to divide us at the same time grabbing as much rights limiting power to subjugate.. as
they can, while they can.
