NDAA 2013: Let’s Identify The Traitors To The U.S. Constitution


ndaa-protest

This article was written by Eric Blair and originally published at Activist Post

By now anyone who pays attention to politics knows that the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2012 contained a provision that allows for the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens without charge or trial.

Section 1021 of the 2012 NDAA states that anyone suspected of being involved in terrorism or “belligerent acts” against the U.S. can be detained by the military under the so-called Authorization for Use of Military Force, including American citizens.

In other words, the war on terror has been officially declared on U.S. soil and everyone is now considered a potential combatant in this war.

Senator Lindsey Graham pretty much summed it up when he said, “The homeland is part of the battlefield and people can be held without trial whether an American citizen or not.”

Even though this clause is a direct violation of citizen’s rights under the 6th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, there was scarcely any dissent and hardly a peep from the corporate media when Obama signed it into law under the cover of darkness late on New Year’s Eve 2011.

This year Senator Rand Paul once again blocked the passage of the NDAA for 2013, which the Senate hoped to rush through before the Thanksgiving recess. Using a filibuster, Paul is attempting to force a vote on his amendment to exempt American citizens from the indefinite detention clause.

Rand Paul’s amendment simply reaffirms the 6th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:

A citizen of the United States who is captured or arrested in the United States and detained by the Armed Forces of the United States pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107–40) shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.”

Compare that to the 6th Amendment of the Constitution:

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

It’s sad that it is so difficult to get elected officials to debate, let alone vote on, legislation that is in direct violation to the Constitution that they swore an oath to uphold. But these are certainly Orwellian times where normal thinking no longer applies.

As Rand Paul points out in the video below about the 2012 NDAA vote, “The senate voted 55 to 45 to allow indefinite detention of US citizens without jury trial. We have become Orwellian without even knowing it.”

When the Senate resumes after recess, the NDAA 2013 will likely pass even with a recorded vote on Paul’s amendment, but at least the traitors will put themselves on display for all to see.

If there are any true oath keepers in positions of power, this would be a perfect time to arrest those who vote against this amendment. Their treason to the Constitution couldn’t be any clearer.

    Uhm, I would like to make it clear that Oath Keepers, as an educational organization, is not here to arrest anyone. Our job is to educate our cops and firefighters and soldiers about the Constitution to which they swore their Oath. We are an educational organization, and as such we are passive and are not aggressive. The author of the above story may speak as he wishes, but he has inadvertently carried a mis-conception of the Oath Keepers mission. We forgive him, but must point out the obvious.

    Salute!

    Elias, What he said was “If there are any true oath keepers IN POSITIONS OF POWER, this would be a perfect time to arrest those who vote against this amendment” which would apply to any military or LEO’s who are Oathkeepers, and in that line of work.

    But the treason goes beyond the Patriot Act, NDAA, warrantless spying/tracking/searches/etc. It starts with Obama immediately after another *fraudulent election becoming the Chair for the UN.
    *The 2008 Democratic Nominating Committee (DNC) document did not include language stating that Obama was qualified to be a candidate. The 2008 Republican Nominating Committee (RNC) document did, as is normal. This shows that the DNC knew that Obama was not qualified, or why change the form? Plus various other 2008 election fraud that went on.

    To make things even, we are all aware (or should be) that the 2012 GOP (RNC) also committed so much election fraud that was documented, videod, multiple witnesses and again nothing was done.

    Back to treason.
    Fast and Furious was not only treason, but multiple murders in Mexico and here. Obama did a PRESS RELEASE in March 2009 on the subject, plus before that he fought for funding. Holder did a speech at the Arms Trafficking Convention in Mexico in very early April 2009 updating them on Fast and Furious and detailing the expansion of it, with Janet Napolitano – yet there was no “evidence”??? All of this was sent to the investigating committee – but I guess it was not enough proof.Or, they are in cahoots and working with them to destroy our legitimate government and us.

    Then we have Obama’s treasonous letter sent to Boehner – the one where he said he did NOT represent the USA and the Constitution (which is the ONLY recognized source of authority here in the USA), but represented and got his “authority” from the UN and NATO. That is on paper, in writing, but of course it means nothing, right?
    Then in front of – and to – a Senate hearing, Panetta, Dempsey, said that they do not represent or get THEIR authroity from the US Constitution. Their “Authority” comes from the UN.
    Obama, Dempsey, and Panetta said they GAVE AUTHORITY OVER THE USA TO THE UN. That they gave authority over the US Military to the UN. All treason.

    In the United States the Constitution provides for the impeachment of federal officials charged with ‘Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanours’ – “Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” These terms refer to the abuse of power, misapplication of public funds (misapplication – the fraudulent appropriation of funds or property entrusted to your care but actually owned by someone else), corruption, criminal conduct, or violating the separation of powers mandated by the Constitution.

    The Constitution defines treason in Article 3, Section 3, Clause 1:Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.

    If this is not war against the USA, what is?

    ADHERING. Cleaving to, or joining; as, adhering to the enemies of the United States… If war be actually levied, that is, a body of men be actually assembled for the purpose of effecting by force a treasonable enterprise, all those who perform any part, however minute, or however remote from the scene of action, and who are leagued in the general conspiracy are to be considered as traitors.”
    Cleaving to, or joining; as, adhering to the enemies of the United States.
    2. The constitution of the United States, art. 3, s 3, defines treason against the United States, to consist only in levying war against them or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.
    3. The fact that a citizen is cruising in an enemy’s ship, with a design to capture or destroy American ships, would be an adhering to the enemies of the United States. 4 State Tr. 328 ; Salk. 634; 2 Gilb. Ev. by Lofft, 798.
    4. If war be actually levied, that is, a body of men be actually assembled for the purpose of effecting by force a treasonable enterprise, all those who perform any part, however minute, or however remote from the scene of action, and who are leagued in the general conspiracy are to be considered as traitors. 4 Cranch. 126.

    What does it mean by “levying War?” According to Bouvier’s Law Dictionary it means: “The assembling of a body of men for the purpose of effecting by force a treasonable object; and all who perform any part however minute, or however remote from the scene of action, and who are leagued in the general conspiracy, are considered as engaged in levying war, within the meaning of the constitution.”

    Then there is Benghazi. Once again treason and murder by the same government body.

    Do you think that is because no one has called them on their illegal acts so they get more confident and violent that there is NO ONE IN the USA who will stand by their Oath to SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE US CONSTITUTION?

    Remember; If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

    I am not calling for any battles, I am calling for arrests and prosecutions under our US Constitution – our legitimate government.

    Clause 2 of Article VI of the ORIGINAL Constitution: “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.”

    “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” Abraham Lincoln

    “Under the American Constitution a new structure of government was established on a much higher plane than either the parliamentary system or the confederation of states. It was a people’s constitutional republic, where a certain amount of power was delegated to the states and a certain amount was delegated to the national government. There was a small dimension of power which they shared jointly. All other power was retained by the people. It is the delegation by the people of certain powers to the states and certain powers to the national government which we call ‘dual federalism.’” W. Cleon Skousen, The Making of America

    For the COURTS and ATTORNEY’s: “On every question of construction (of the Constitution) let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson

    “A constitution is not the act of a government, but of a people constituting a government; and government without a constitution is power without a right. All power exercised over a nation, must have some beginning. It must be either delegated, or assumed. There are not other sources. All delegated power is trust, and all assumed power is usurpation. Time does not alter the nature and quality of either.” Thomas Paine

    “God provided that in this land of liberty, our political allegiance shall run not to individuals, that is, to government officials, no matter how great or how small they may be. Under His plan our allegiance and the only allegiance we owe as citizens or denizens of the United States, runs to our inspired Constitution which God himself set up. So runs the oath of office of those who participate in government. A certain loyalty we do owe to the office which a man holds, but even here we owe just by reason of our citizenship, no loyalty to the man himself. In other countries it is to the individual that allegiance runs. This principle of allegiance to the Constitution is basic to our freedom. It is one of the great principles that distinguishes this “land of liberty” from other countries”. J. Reuben Clark

    Sorry Elias, I know, I did it again – sorta.

    Brandon Says:

    I believe the author is referring to oath keeping government officials who are in a legal position to prosecute, NOT the organization known as Oath Keepers. Obviously, it is not the job of Oath Keepers to become some kind of “enforcement arm”, it is indeed an educational source. Those that think Oath Keepers is some kind of “army” waiting to be “tapped” by the right institution or movement simply don’t get it.

    Though, admittedly, the likelihood of any government official moving to prosecute the elites who are establishing the indefinite detainment provisions of the NDAA is incredibly small. It’s a nice thought, but a long shot. What the article gets right is pointing out the fact that ANY POLITICIAN that signs onto the NDAA bandwagon is a traitor. Period. Whether they are Democrat or Republican is irrelevant. If they support it, they are an enemy to the Constitution and to your freedoms.

    Cal Says:

    It is not that we think Oathkeepers the organization, ‘is some kind of “army”‘, it is that we know this site is well read, and that some of those reading it are most likely occupying positions that can take legal action against this major corruption that is happening.

    Since it is on the “watch”list along with a lot of others, some of those watching may not realize exactly what our legitimate government is, what treason is and what acts that have been committed are treasonous, the parallels with constitutional Germany being taken over from inside (Domestic Enemies), what laws have been broken, what the ramifications are if this continues (they and their children will be enslaved and that the freedom they will have will be the progressive freedom of they will not “have” to make ANY decisions for themselves – like slaves – when they get to sleep, eat, what food they eat, what jobs they do, may not be allowed to “breed”, etc), that taking and following illegal orders means that they become criminals and actively aid in the destruction of the USA, that unless they “depopulate” (kill) us all we will hunt them down for the rest of their lives (like Germany, they are still being hunted) for arrest and subsequent prosecution, and “just following orders”, “just doing my job” are NOT a defense); that if thoe i control find they have no use for them, they also will be “depopulated”, etc.

    Our government is the Constitution of the USA, not those temp workers we put into place to carry out the duties as assigned by the Constitution. That they have way overstepped their bounds is a miss statement. This is an attack from within on our legitimate government as happened with Germany. The concept of ruling the world (New World Order, One World Government) is not a new concept, it is a very old idea with a new name.

    Why can’t we make citizens arrest?

    I’m NOT advocating anything with what I’m about to say or ask, but honestly, Why hasn’t there been a military coup yet, ousting these traitorous global fascists?

    Elias Alias Says:

    Regarding a military coup, that is out of the question. A military coup is in direct violation of the Constitution. The Constitution has given us the lawful remedy for treason and for any internally-spawned attempt to destroy this country from within. It is called the “Militia of the Several States”. Please inform friends and neighbors about a wonderful new film being made right now for release in coming months – Molon Labe:

    Let me be clear please. I am as acutely aware as anyone else about what’s going down in America right now. Believe me, I know the score. I would dearly love to see *someone* arrest every damned one of our legislators who vote for any law which contradicts our Constitution, which many so-called “laws” clearly do. Treason should be punished in every instance in which it rears its ugly head, especially within that cesspool called Washington D.C. I just have to continue making it clear for all readers here that, as Brandon said, Oath Keepers is not “some kind of enforcement arm”. We cannot endorse any proactive attempts to save this nation from oligarchical slavery which has already swallowed up most of our country. But we are free to inform – at present time. Send your friends to this website so they can read and improve their understanding about what now threatens our very way of life as Americans. Urge your friends to join Oath Keepers so their dues and/or donations can help fund our printed programs which are dispersed to peace officers, soldiers, firefighters and Veterans.

    What we can do is loudly and clearly define for our cops, firefighters, soldiers, and Veterans communities what the Oath to the Constitution is all about. That is one of the most powerful tools available to the American people right now. It costs money each month to do this, but thankfully there are many capable and willing Americans who are helping carry the load. We need all the help we can get. Thanks go out to all who have supported our mission thus far.

    Americans Are The Most Spied On People In World History. More Spying On Citizens than in Stasi East Germany Global Research, December 05, 2012 Indeed, the American government has more information on the average American than Stalin had on Russians, Hitler had on German citizens, or any other government has ever had on its people. The American government is collecting and storing virtually every phone call, purchases, email, text message, internet searches, social media communications, health information, employment history, travel and student records, and virtually all other information of every American.
