Bush Signs Police State/ Martial Law Acts
On October 17th, in a private Oval Office ceremony, Bush signed two very scary Acts which threaten the core of America as we know it.
The Public Law 109-364 or the "John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007 (H.R.5122), allows the President to declare a "public emergency" & station troops anywhere in America & take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governer or other local authorities, in order to "suppress public disorder".
On the same exact day, Bush also signed the Military Commissions Act of 2006. The 2 laws complement one another. One allows for torture & detention in other countries, while the other seeks to enforce acquiescence here at home, preparing to order the military onto the streets of the US. Nothing short of Martial Law & a Police State.
Section 1076 of the Authorization Act, which grants the Pentagon $500-plus billion for it's actions, is titled, "Use of the Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies." Section 333, "Major public emergencies; interference with State and Federal law" states that " the President may employ the armed forces, including the National Guard in Federal service, to restore public order and enforce the laws of the United States when, as a result of a natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition in any State or possession of the United States, the President determines that domestic violence has occured to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of maintaing public order, "in order to suppress, in any State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy."
For Bush, "enforcement of the laws to restore public order" means to commandeer National Guard from any state, over the objections of local goverment, military & local police; ship them off to another statee, conscript them in a law enforcement mode; & set them loose against "disorderly" citizens--protesters, even, or those who object to forced vaccinations & quarantines in the event of a bio-terror event!
The law also facilitates militarized police round-ups & detention of "PROTESTERS", so-called "ILLEGAL ALIENS", " POTENTIAL TERRORISTS", & other "DESIRABLES" for detention in facilities already contracted for & under construction by Halliburton.
You read right. Detention camps are being constructed right under our noses designed for ANYONE who RESISTS the foreign & domestic AGENDA of the BUSH ADMINISTRATION!!
The new law, signed by Bush in a private White House ceremony, further collapses the divide between the military & police: A TALE TELL SIGN OF A RAPIDLY CONSOLIDATING POLICE STATE IN THE U.S., all accomplished by selling it as part of the "war on terror".
Despite the shocking & unprecedented nature of this act, there has not been an outcry by the American public or media, & little reaction from elected members of Congress.
What the hell is wrong with the sheep of this country to allow Bush to sign such a law???
We should all be out in the streets demanding the impeachment of Bush, & demanding we get OUR country back!
You need to fully understand the ramifications of this law/act, & take your I-Pods out of your damn ears, & the blindfolds off your eyes!
We, & when I say we, I mean those who protest against the goverment, those of us who practice our free speech rights regardless of whether it coincides with the goverments or not, those of us with a different color skin than the majority in the White House, those of us who blog a little too far to the Left------WE ARE ALL AT RISK!!!
This law means that Bush can just make a call & have the National Guard or military show up at the next protest you might attend, round everyone up, & shipped off to Dissenter Camp.
This is no joke. This is no conspiracy theory. This is no exaggeration. THIS IS REAL.
So What Will YOU Do About It?
Or follow the flock to slaughter.
