Amendment To Protect Americans From Indefinite Detention Passes Senate

Last night, the U.S. Senate voted on Amendment No. 3018 to the National Defense Authorization Act sponsored by Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), and co-sponsored by Sen. Rand Paul, which protects the rights prescribed to Americans in the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution with regard to indefinite detention and the right to a trial by jury.

The amendment passed, 67-29. However, many Senators, including McCain and Graham, voted for the amendment because they made the argument that the amendment authorizes indefinite detention.

Moments before the vote, Sen. Paul took to the Senate floor to again voice his support for the amendment and inspire his colleagues to do the same. Below is video and transcript of his floor speech.




Here is an email sent to Senator Rand Paul’s email “list”:

Submitted by JO for Ron Paul on Fri, 11/30/2012 – 07:42. Permalink

The right to a trial by jury is one of the very foundations of our Republic.

Thanks to the petitions and phone calls from concerned Americans like you, the Amendment stripping the indefinite detention language out of the NDAA just passed the U.S. Senate by a vote of 67-29.

But this fight isn’t over yet.

Since the Senate amended the NDAA, it now has to go back to the House for approval.

So you and I must remain prepared to pick up this fight in the Senate in the near future.

Once again, thank you for all you do. I’ll be sure and keep you updated on our fight to protect the 6th Amendment rights of all Americans.

In Liberty,
Senator Rand Paul

    The Government Can Still Black Bag Any American

    The Senate passed the much ballyhooed Feinstein-Lee amendment last night, which supposedly partially nullifies the provision in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) allowing for Americans to be kidnapped by the government and disappeared without any charge or due process. Senator Rand Paul put out a press release declaring victory. But as Congressman Justin Amash points out, the wording of the amendment effectively codifies tyranny:

    The heart of the Feinstein amendment:

    “An authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority shall not authorize the detention without charge or trial of a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States apprehended in the United States, UNLESS AN ACT OF CONGRESS EXPRESSLY AUTHORIZES SUCH DETENTION.”

    Well, that Act of Congress is the 2012 NDAA, which renders the rest of the Feinstein amendment meaningless.

    John, what you posted was my concern as well. In the thread up above, I noted, here are the traitors. I didn’t post exactly who were the traitors, as it seems all muddled up.

    Mcstain, Frankenstein, and Graham cracker all voted for this amendment, however they all voted for NDAA 2012. I guess Stewart is the one to decipher exactly what is what.

    Black bags? A zombie lawyer criminal in a fugitive jurisdiction in the commonwealthdumdum of penn sly vain lie, got together with a zombie lawyer criminal outlaw gang 20 years ago and decided he was going to make up all kinds of stories on me, and I’m still uncovering lies spread around about me today. Zombie lawyer criminals back 20 years ago wouldn’t break their zombie lawyer criminal brotherhood and sue. One of the many lies the zombie lawyer criminal spread around was that I didn’t serve in the USN from 79-84? Always had my dd-214 sitting around. Still today if I try to gain the services of a zombie lawyer criminal, to the tune of the zombie making $8500 for about 6 hrs work, and the zombie secretly forsakes the case, to secretly screw me over, but I secretly find out and don’t mention it to the zombie (kept it a secret) and I win it by myself and then have the audacity to say that zombie lawyer criminal tried to screw me over, to anyone,,suddenly I’m a secret not so secret suspect in anything and everything. No sir, what zombie lawyers have planned for their zombie lawyer criminal dinners for years to come, they don’t need any black bags, just your family and you in a roasting pot.

    Austrian, Why don’t you let Rand’s words and actions be known rather than attacking him? You do know how to research votes don’t you? How about publishing their words and votes rather than be a attack dog for the establishment? Am I asking to much? Personally, I do not think so!

    Peace, and reason will shine on the truth!
