you think that the 2007 Defense Authorization Bill which changes the Insurrection Act of 1807
under false pretenses of a unvalidated threat of "Al Qaeda" is not only legal
but justifies killing Americans on American soil by drone bombing without a trial?
thats one hundred years a law has been on the books, changed six years ago
& you are so brainwashed you do not see anything wrong with this?
even when someone "suspected" to be a leader without solid proof being provided
in a court of law is murdered?
"By the privileges of "Habeas Corpus", no man can be confined without inquiry, and if it should appear that he has been confined contrary to the
law, he must be discharged" - James Iresell 1789
now, in America, we are not even discussing being thrown in jail, but being bombed from the air going about our daily lives..
The public welfare demands that constitutional cases must be decided according to the terms of the Constitution itself, and not according to the
judges' view of fairness, reasonableness, or justice. I have no fear of constitutional amendments properly adopted, but I do fear the rewriting of
the Constitution by judges under the guise of interpretation" - Justice Hugo Black 1968
this "war on terror", an ideal, not a physical thing, is the fear mongering excuse for controlling the people. the collateral damage that we see
happen overseas will kill innocent Americans. Without proof of a threat, the Federal Government has declared WAR on all Americans. To scare them into
obeying Unconstitutional laws passed by representatives beholden to lobbyists & not the People.
"if the legislative and judicial powers are untied, the maker of the law will also interpret it. Should the executive and legislative powers be
united... the executive power would make itself absolute, and the government end in tyranny. Should the executive and judicial powers be united, the
subject [citizen] would then have no permanent security of his person or property" - Theophilus Parson
With these unconstitutional changes to attack Americans without any sort of trial or evidence, We the People, have no security of our person or
property.. that in and of itself is proof that under these changes, these actions are rightfully deemed illegal.
All rights remain with the people except those which they choose to delegate to their government, Article I, Section 9 required that the privilege of
"habeas corpus" could not be suspended "unless there is a rebellion or an invasion and the public safety requires it".
The Founders then extended the provision to the State laws by by asserting in Article IV, Section 2, that "the citizens of each state shall be
entitled to all privileges and immunities of citizens in the several states"
so, if in fact the Fed had a legal case, as in proof of a rebellion or invasion, there would have been no need to usurp the hundred year Habeas Corpus
law by distorting it. why not catch such criminal "terrorists" with the FBI, the CIA, any of the various counter terrorism units, the National
Guard, local Sheriffs, Police? why open a loop hole for war on American soil against Americans?
they are the traitors. they are the terrorists. thats why.
in the past..
The freemen of America did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise, and entangled the question in precedents. They saw all the
consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle. We revere this lesson too much, soon to forget it." -
Congress was further empowered to provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining the state militias and for governing any militia forces called into
the service of the United States, the Constitution reserved to the states the power to appoint officers and train the militia according to discipline
prescribed by Congress. The Constitution very carefully set up a system for defending the Union, while at the same time guarding the liberty of
The Founders were dedicated to the idea that civil authority would prevail over the military.
Now, when a citizen follows the Constitutional provisions set up for the States Militia, that citizen can be labeled a terrorist & murdered without
trial & his name slandered & used as propaganda against the very people he stood up to defend.
that is a Constitutional conflict of interest to the laws intention, therefore Unconstitutional.
The next great right is that of trail by jury. This provides that neither life, liberty nor property can be taken from the possessor, until twelve of
his..countrymen..shall pass their sentence upon oath against him." James Madison
Amazing what a basic understanding of the Constitution can lead one to find.
