S. 1867 National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 is a bill that could affect all Americans.
Certainly we want to be safe at home, but at what cost? The Welborn Freedom Watch site is the place to visit to learn more about this bill and the language of the bill which has many Americans disturbed.
The biggest dispute concerns a provision saying terror suspects should be taken into military custody. It also provides a national security exception for the executive branch to move them under the jurisdiction of federal law enforcement.
Judge Napolitano is very concerned over the wording in this Bill and it’s impact on American citizens by the military. Please watch the video for more information. There is a lot of confusion over this Act and the language in Sections 1031 and 1032. I called Senator DeMint’s office earlier today to determine his position. His aide said they have received many telephone calls on this, and Senator DeMint had not taken an official position and was researching the language in the above Sections of the bill.
I am not clear concerning the language in the bill, however, I did hear the judge discuss it yesterday and it sounds as if citizens could be arrested if a president “decided they are an enemy of the state.” Is this a power we want to give to the president, regardless of whether or not we voted for the person?
