In 13 hour Senate Filibuster Rand Paul asks ONE question of Obama Administration.
“Do you have the Constitutional power to use a drone to kill a US citizen on US soil?”
“No.” Should have been the answer, but instead we get legalese that proclaims power to provisionally decide to kill a US citizen on US soil with a drone.
[…]The American “battlefield” doctrine and the NDAA
In defending the drone assassination powers of the President, you might hear language used that says drones will “only be used on the battlefield.” That seems to imply they will only be used in the Middle East, right?
Wrong. The USA has been legally defined as the new “battlefield” by the NDAA. That’s theNational Defense Authorization Act which also allows for the arrest and indefinite detention of American citizens without trial, without legal representation and even without them ever being charged.
The USA is the new “battlefield,” and when you combine the NDAA and the DOJ’s new drone killing justification memo, you now have the claimed legal framework for any American on U.S. soil to be arrested, detained, tortured or blown to bits without warning and without even a single shred of evidence being presented against him.
Yes, this is America today. Right now. You are living under a military dictatorship and most of you don’t even realize it yet. Even liberals and progressives are starting to wake up to Obama’s tyranny, by the way. On Democracy Now, Daniel Ellsberg recently described Obama’s actions as a “systematic assault on the Constitution.”
Who are the terrorists?
Of course, anyone who raises these points will be immediately dismissed with the claim that all this new power in the hands of the President will only be used “against terrorists.”
Okay, then who are the terrorists, exactly? It turns out they are YOU!
As Judge Napolitano recently explained:
The [Janet Napolitano DHS] memorandum said that people who are pro-life, people who believe in the right to keep and bear arms, returning veterans, people who think the government is too big and the IRS is too powerful, could be characterized as domestic terrorists. That could characterize two-thirds of the country. (Click here to see related video.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwJb5pbWhe4 […]
[…]All that is necessary to justify the murder of American citizens without trial is labeling them “terrorists” even with no evidence to support such a claim. The drone killings require no evidence. They only require the signature of one man.
Who is likely on the drone strike target list in the USA
So who is most likely to be assassinated by President Obama once drone strikes are fully unleashed in the USA?
• Political opponents.
• Anti-government protesters. (One Hellfire missile takes ‘em all out.)
• Online activists.
• Gun owners and gun shops.
• Constitutionalists and libertarians.
Drone strikes are completely silent because the Hellfire missiles arrive faster than the speed of sound. You don’t even hear the missile until after the explosion. The blast radius of a Hellfire missile is 15 – 20 meters, and everything inside that radius is completely obliterated. This is more than enough to destroy entire homes, apartments and office buildings, not to mention vehicles and even light bunkers.
World Net Daily editor Joseph Farah actually voiced his concern about Obama being reelected, saying that he believed Obama would “kill journalists” if he won a second term. Farah is not being paranoid. He’s right on the money with where this is going. Copy and paste, to read his article this link, http://www.wnd.com/2012/10/obamas-2nd-term-war-on-domestic-opposition/ published right before the 2012 election.
I think Mike Adams sees this issue very clearly, will enough US citizens wake up to the warning bells ringing through his and Joseph Farah’s and many others including the Rand Paul Senate Filibuster to save what is left of the Republic? Or will the slow murder of the US Constitution continue to its last gasp with an ignominious endgame?
