Dissenters To Be Detained As “Enemy Belligerents”

Dissenters To Be Detained As “Enemy Belligerents”?

This is not a joke and this is very serious. Just read it all and think about what has gone on of late.

Since the establishment media is convinced that tea party members, 9/11 truthers, libertarians, Ron Paul supporters, and basically anyone with a dissenting political opinion is a likely domestic terrorist, they should be celebrating the fact that a new bill would allow the government to detain such people as “enemy belligerents” indefinitely and without trial based on their “suspected activity”.

The “Enemy Belligerent, Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010,” introduced by Senators John McCain and Joseph Lieberman on Thursday with little fanfare, “sets out a comprehensive policy for the detention, interrogation and trial of suspected enemy belligerents who are believed to have engaged in hostilities against the United States by requiring these individuals to be held in military custody, interrogated for their intelligence value and not provided with a Miranda warning,” The Atlantic "A Detention Bill You Ought to Read More Carefully"...

The bill does not distinguish between U.S. citizens and non-citizens, and states that “suspected belligerents” who are “considered a “high-value detainee” shall not be provided with a Miranda warning.”

A person is considered a “high value detainee” if they fulfil one of the following criteria.

(1) poses a threat of an attack on civilians or civilian facilities within the U.S. or U.S. facilities abroad; (2) poses a threat to U.S. military personnel or U.S. military facilities; (3) potential intelligence value; (4) is a member of al Qaeda or a terrorist group affiliated with al Qaeda or (5) such other matters as the President considers appropriate...

Pay specific attention to the powers given to the President in part 5.

I talked and warned about this back last spring when the MIAC report and the Homeland security reports came out. In the reports it describes patriots, gun owners, anti-abortion, Christians, anti-tax, end the Federal Reserve protesters, and Veterans as domestic terrorists. Get ready folks cause Nazi Germany on steroids is coming up on us here in America. I hope not but it doesn't look good.
