Repeal Section 1021 of the NDAA 2012: Ron Paul to Congress

The clause allows the President of the United States to order the indefinite detention of any American by the U.S. military, even on American soil, without charge or trial and essentially erases the 4th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States and all the protections and guarantees of due process it provided.

Both the Senate and House of Representatives passed NDAA with the detention clause in it with overwhelming support, to their shame forever.

Section 1021 was originally introduced by senators (R) McCain and (D) Levin. President Obama signed it into law on New Years Eve “with reservations”… but he signed it.

It was at that moment that I decided to support Ron Paul for President of the United States in 2012.

The bill introduced by congressman Paul is:  H.R.3785 – To repeal section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012.

I also ask our New Jersey representatives in Congress to support the legislation to repeal the infamous clause. If elected governor on New Jersey in 2013, although this is not in the job description of the governorship,  I will be vocal in championing the repeal of that tyrannical section of the NDAA-2012.


The Betrayal: Senators McCain and Levin Call for the End of Liberty and Due Process

Defense bill offers balance in dealing with detainees – The Washington Post.

My posting was:

“This is blatant attempt to making tyranny the law of the land. What a preposterous and quasi criminal attempt. All Americans who love liberty and individual rights should unite against this travesty of a bill. Stop using terrorism to justify tyranny and repression at home.

As independent candidate for governor of New Jersey in 2013, I call on the two senators to withdraw this attack against our freedom. Due process is an inalienable right. You will pass into history as the McCarthy’s of the XXI Century. ”

Proposed Defense Budget Makes Inroads into Civil Liberties: Sections 1031 and 1032 in S.1253, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA).

If enacted, sections 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA would:

1) Explicitly authorize the federal government to indefinitely imprison without charge or trial American citizens and others picked up inside and outside the United States;

(2) Mandate military detention of some civilians who would otherwise be outside of military control, including civilians picked up within the United States itself; and

(3) Transfer to the Department of Defense core prosecutorial, investigative, law enforcement, penal, and custodial authority and responsibility now held by the Department of Justice.

This must be stopped.
