America Is Falling! WHY? There was a very interesting article written by Daneen G. Peterson, Ph.D. on December 7, 2006 when George W. Bush was still President. Its title was Two Acts of Tyranny on the Same Day! “On October 17, 2006, ‘a date which will live in infamy’ … there were two acts of tyranny committed. The first was a public signing of the Military Commissions Act of 2006 ‘which suspended habeas corpus allowing the president to declare YOU an enemy combatant’ and end your rights to seek legal or judicial relief from unlawful imprisonment. “The second act of tyranny took place in a private Oval Office ceremony,
in which the president [Bush] signed into law the ‘John Warner National Defense Authorization Act [NDAA] of 2007’ which essentially eliminates the protection of the Posse Commitatus Act and rewrote the Insurrection Act. The NDAA will allow the president to declare a ‘public emergency’ [such as the giant storm Sandy in October 2012] and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to ‘suppress public disorder!’ About the Military Act of 2006 “A writ of habeas corpus, which is Latin for ‘you have the body’ [as proof], is a judicial mandate to a prison official ordering that an inmate be brought to the court so it can be determined whether or not that person is imprisoned lawfully and whether or not he should be released from custody (lectlaw.com, habeas corpus: Defined and Explained.). “The writ of habeas corpus serves as an important check on the manner in which state courts pay respect to federal constitutional rights. The writ is ‘the fundamental instrument for safeguarding individual freedom against arbitrary and lawless state action.’ (IBID). “Law Professor Jonathan Turley had a pessimist’s view when he wrote: “The Congress just gave the president despotic powers, and you could hear a yawn across the country. … What happened today changed us. And I’m not too sure we’re going to change back anytime soon” (Doug Hornig, The Passing of Habeas Corpus). “Turley also said that ‘What, really, a time of shame this is for the American system.
What the Congress did and what the president signed today essentially revokes over 200 years of American principles and values (Robert Longley, Bush and Lincoln both Suspended Habeas Corpus).About the John Warner National defense Authorization Act of 2007 “The NDAA essentially eliminated the Posse Comitatus Act and re-wrote the Insurrection Act, so the president can declare a ‘public emergency’ and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to ‘suppress public disorder’! “‘The historic and ominous re-writing of the Insurrection Act, accomplished in the dead of night, which gave Bush and future presidents the legal authority to declare MARTIAL LAW, is now an accomplished fact’ (Frank Morales, Bush Moves Toward Martial Law, October 27, 2006). “‘In a stealth maneuver, President Bush signed into law a provision which, according to Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), will actually encourage the President to declare martial law. It does so by revising the Insurrection Act, a set of laws that LIMITS the President’s ability to deploy troops within the United States. The Insurrection Act (10 U.S.C. 331-335) has historically, along with the Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.SS.C. 1385), helped to enforce strict prohibitions on military involvement in domestic law enforcement. With one cloaked swipe of his pen, Bush undid those prohibitions’ (IBID).
