Anonymous will act against National Defense Authorization Act, NDAA

Anonymous will act against National Defense Authorization Act

Anonymous will act against National Defense Authorization Act

Anonymous wages attack on National Defense Authorization Act, NDAA, re-signed by Obama into law, giving the military extraordinary sweeping powers to detain US citizens indefinitely without trial.

Time magazine called the protester the person of the year for 2011, but if the US government and Obama Administration continue with its campaign against American freedom, defying corruption with demonstration as such will be outlawed in only a matter of time in the USA.

Concerned over how very real the collapse of the US Constitution is because of Congress’ passing of the National Defense Authorization Act, the NDAA, global activists with the online collective Anonymous have proposed a national day of action against the controversial legislation to occur within next month.

Hacktivists had initially proposed a massive campaign against the act for January, but have now moved the protest to launch on February 3.

NDAA lays foundation for targeting political dissenters, activism

The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, or NDAA, was recently signed off by US President Barack Obama. Under the legislation, the Department of Defense is guaranteed spending appropriations for a 12-month span. Certain provisions snuck in, however, the US government is granted the powers to indefinitely detain and torture American citizens without charge, essentially creating Guantanamo Prison-style detention possibilities for anyone deemed a threat by American authorities.

US President Barack Obama insists that he will not abide by such provisions, although the laws are still written and approved under his own name. Although he could abide by his word and remove himself from endorsing any of the provisions, the fact that the legislation does still for such enforcement does not negate its existence.

“The statute is particularly dangerous because it has no temporal or geographic limitations, and can be used by Obam and future US presidents to militarily detain people captured far from any battlefield,” stresses American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Executive Director Anthony Romero of the dangerous realities promised under NDAA. Even if Barack Obama claims he will not abide by the powers he has now been bestowed with under the legislation, Romero says that US President Obama “will forever be known as the president who signed indefinite detention without charge or trial into law.”

What Obama had promised and what he has done so far

On January 22, 2009, newly inaugurated President Barack H. Obama proudly issued his first three executive orders, one of them, a directive requiring the infamous Guantanamo Bay prison facility to be closed within one year.

Nearly three years later, Guantanamo Bay remains open with prisoners being held without trial, and a new law enacted with the stroke of his pen could mean more American citizens will be joining them soon.

Activists against the legislation have rallied in opposition since it first moved through Congress. Following Obama’s New Year’s Eve signing, however, widespread disbelief and concern has only increased and now Anonymous is urging Americans to take it to the streets before Congress begins to act on the damning bill.

“While we cannot force the American people to protest, we must tell them that this law will trip away any rights they thought they had including but not limited to free speech, free press, free access to information and the right to protest, assemble and bear arms,” recites a digitzed voice in a recent YouTube clip uploaded by an account alleging to be affiliated with the Anonymous collective. The narrator describes that NDAA allows for the government to detain suspects, “even American citizens, without trial” for any allegedly belligerent acts.

Belligerent Act : A Twisted definition in US Policy ?

“What is a belligerent act?” asks the speaker. “Is protesting a belligerent act? Is being Anonymous a belligerent act? This is where we draw the line.”

“This is when we revolt.”

Previously, hacktivists aligned with the Anonymous collective attempted to wage cyber attacks on the creators and signers of NDAA, going after lawmakers involved in the bill by posting private information on the Web.

“No longer will you be able to enslave the people. The whole world will know of your violations against the rights of the citizens you were elected to represent,” read a statement from one Anonymous operative then. In recent weeks, a similar online-organized attack against supporters of the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, forced in part several major corporations from withdrawing support of the legislation.

    Please read about FBI and police crimes that media will not report with a search for “New police weapon against homeless” on homeless forums and “Historic coverup of FBI and police crimes currently taking place” on the Urban 75 message board.

    “the people should not be afraid of their government, the government should be afraid of its people.” – Thomas Jefferson

    Can Americans Survive U.S. Government / Police Corruption Without Due Process?

    Reports of Police Corruption proliferate the Media—Police planting evidence, taking bribes, smuggling, selling drugs—falsifying reports; providing perjured testimony—sending innocent Americans to prison.

    Americans have reason to Fear Police. Corrupt Police and Government Agencies can potentially have a field day with the Dec. 2011 passed National Defense Authorization ACT of 2012 (NDAA). Under (NDAA) U.S. Government (does not need probable cause or evidence to Indefinitely Detain Americans without charges, no right to an attorney, trial or Habeas Corpus if suspected of being involved in terrorism.) Corrupt Police and Government Agents that plant evidence, falsify reports—provide perjured testimony can now cause innocent Americans to be dragged from their homes and (indefinitely incarcerated) for being a (suspected) terrorist or supporting Terrorism: Note no violent act is required to be charged with involvement in terrorism under (NDAA).

    Importantly Note: The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA)—mandates holding Americans’ (Indefinitely) in Military Custody. That would appear to include “Belligerents.” The term “Belligerent” in (NDAA) is so expansive and vague U.S. Government could deem anyone a “Belligerent”; even for exercising First Amendment Rights—speaking out for or against any issue; protesting a U.S. Government Policy; agency or coalition Partner.

    Under (NDAA) some observers believe U.S. Government will threaten Americans with Indefinite Detention that refuse to act as informants. U.S. Citizens should EXPECT such heavy-handed tactics by local police under (NDAA) as U.S. Government continues—to militarize local police. The East German Stasi Police used the threat of Indefinite Detention to create an army of neighborhood and other informants. After the East Berlin Wall came down it was discovered (Stasi Police Informant Files) if lined up back to back would extend 12-miles. Huge numbers of East Germans informed on their friends, neighbors, even love one to please their government handler; out of spite, because of mental problems and or to receive—government perks.

    Under the passed (NDAA) The National Defense Authorization ACT of 2012, corrupt police and false informant perjury are a serious threat to Americans’ Freedom because under the ACT there is no Due Process for Indefinitely Detained Americans. In effect Americans lost in Dec. 2011 their Constitution and Country To Fascist Legislation. It should be expected Indefinitely Detained U.S. Citizens not involved in terrorism or hostile activities, not given Miranda Warnings when interrogated or allowed legal counsel or a trial—will be prosecuted for non-terrorist (ordinary crimes) because of their (alleged admissions) while held in Indefinite Detention: Government can circumvent a U.S. Citizen Detainee’s right to assert the protections of the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Amendment among others.

    Congress is now considering HR 3166 and S. 1698 also known as the “Enemy Expatriation Act” sponsored by Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Charles Dent (R-PA) that would let Government Strip Your Citizenship Without a Conviction. Once an American’s Citizenship is stripped they have no rights whatsoever if suspected of being involved in terrorism. To read article Re: this bill, search: New Bill Known As Enemy Expatriation Act Would Allow Government To Strip Citizenship Without Conviction. To read the full text of the bill, go here:
    http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h112-3166

    Importantly note: After (The Enemy Expatriation Act) is passed by Congress it will JOIN with the National Defense Authorization of 2012 (NDAA). If there was any doubt whether (NDAA) gave U.S. Government the power to Indefinitely Detain Americans on U.S. Soil including mere “Belligerents” that appears confirmed in the Enemy Expatriation Act. (The (Enemy Expatriation Act) grants U.S. Government the power to disappear U.S. Citizens (suspected of having or likely to provoke, engage in or support violent acts or hostilities against U.S. Government; U.S. Civilians; a U.S. Coalition Partner or threatens National Security.)

    Is the passed National Authorization Act of 2012 or the recently introduced Enemy Expatriation Act (Retroactive)? American activists should be concerned. Most U.S. activists and protestors don’t know what other activists and groups they networked or associated did in the past—perhaps illegal under (NDAA) or the (Enemy Expatriation Act). Both the National Authorization Act of 2012; and USA Patriot Act that NDAA refers are expansive and vague—what constitutes (1) supporting or aiding terrorists, (2) a terrorist act; (3) when someone is a “Combatant” or (4) “a Belligerent.” For example, Americans advocating, attending or supporting a meeting or protest demonstration against a U.S. Government Agency; Policy or U.S. Military Action—could be charged with (1) (2) (3) and (4) under NDAA and the Patriot Act.

    Some U.S. writers might be subject to Indefinite Detention under (NDAA) and introduced (Enemy Expatriation Act. It appears “Americans” who write on the Internet express an opinion against any entity of U.S. Government or its coalition partners—may under the broad and vague provisions of The Defense Authorization Act and Patriot Act be deemed by U.S. Government someone likely to provoke, engage in or support violent acts or hostilities against U.S. Government; U.S. Civilians; a U.S. Coalition Partner; or threaten National Security.

    When other countries passed Police State Laws like The Defense Authorization Act of 2012 or Enemy Expatriation Act, Citizens increasingly abstained from politically speaking out; visiting activist websites or posting comments that might be deemed inappropriate by their Police State Government, e.g. cause someone to lose their job; be investigated; disappeared and or detained in Police/Military Custody.

    If U.S. Government abuses it new powers granted by The National Defense Authorization ACT and perhaps soon—The Enemy Expatriation Act, it is foreseeable Americans wills revolt at the polls, move to recall large numbers of Congressman; want to change their Government through the voting process. It is doubtful the political and financial interests behind passing The Defense Authorization Act of 2012 and now The Enemy Expatriation Act would give up easily their entrenched power and influence over Congress: to keep their power, they would have to suspend or terminate U.S. Citizens’ Right to Vote. While that is hard to imagine in America, one can’t help recall history—how Hitler in 1933 got the German Parliament to pass legislation (similar to America’s National Defense Authorization ACT of 2012; USA Patriot Act, and pending Enemy Expatriation Act) Hitler shortly thereafter suspended elections; suspended Provisions in the German Constitution that protected Civil Liberties; told Parliament and the Supreme Court to go home: Suddenly German Citizens lost all voice in Government. Could that be the direction America is headed?

    This post is a little dissonant. The NDAA is just the Department of Defense budget. It has been passed 48 years in a row. Contrary to the view of this post, this time a group of Senators tried to seize presidential power over the detainees at Guantanamo. Their provisions on indefinite detention only apply under the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), and end when the war ends.
