National Defense Authorization Act Protest Scheduled: Occupy Movement & Tea Party Join Together on Monday 13 February 2012 to Demand We Undo NDAA

UNDO NDAA 2012

Oregon Conservatives and Liberals Join to Protest NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 2012)

EVENT DATE: Monday, 13 February 2012, Noon-1pm PST
PLACE: Vogel Plaza, Central Ave & Main St, Medford OR

MEDFORD, OREGON – On Monday 13 February 2012 at Noon in Vogel Plaza there will be a demonstration against the passing of the NDAA, including Wake Up America Southern Oregon, and Occupy Coalition of Ashland, Medford, and Grants Pass, as well as concerned individuals across the political spectrum.

The indefinite detention clauses (sections 1021 and 1022) within this year’s National Defense Authorization Act (signed into law 31 December 2011) are a direct attack upon the civil rights of all Americans, and represent another step taken toward eroding the freedoms which lay at the foundation of our society.

The detention sections of the NDAA begin by “affirm[ing]” that the authority of the President under the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), a joint resolution passed in the immediate aftermath of the September 11th 2001 attacks, includes the power to detain, via the Armed Forces, any person “who was part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners,” and anyone who commits a “belligerent act” against the U.S. or its coalition allies in aid of such enemy forces, under the law of war, “without trial, until the end of the hostilities…”. The text also authorizes trial by military tribunal, or “transfer to the custody or control of the person’s country of origin,” or transfer to “any other foreign country, or any other foreign entity.”[1]

After signing the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 into law, President Obama issued a statement on it that addressed “certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of terrorism suspects.” In the statement Obama maintained that “the legislation does nothing more than confirm authorities that the Federal courts have recognized as lawful under the 2001 AUMF. I want to clarify that my Administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens.”[1] The only provision from which U.S. citizens are exempted here is the “requirement” of military detention. For foreign nationals accused of being members of Al Qaeda, military detention is mandatory; for U.S. citizens, it is optional. This section does not exempt U.S citizens from the presidential power of detention [by the military OR civilian agencies such as the CIA/DHS/FBI etc.]: only from the requirement of military detention.[2]

A demonstration uniting groups and individuals from across the political spectrum will be held on the 13th to show that united we can begin to stand up to the problems which face us as a nation and a people. Please join us in standing up for justice and freedom.

Speakers:

Gil Gilbertson – Josephine County Sheriff, http://www.jocosheriff.us

Joseph Snook – Wake Up America, http://www.usobserver.com/wua/wua.html

Linda Sturgeon – Occupy Ashland, http://www.occupyashlandoregon.org

Jeff Golden – Immense Possibilities as seen on SOPTV, http://www.immensepossibilities.org

STATEMENTS:

“A group full of conservatives, Libertarians, and Tea-party members by the name of Wake Up America Southern Oregon is proud to unite with the Southern Oregon Occupy Movement to take a Bold Stand against the National Defense Authorization Act known as the NDAA. Further, it is time that ‘We the People’, all of us unite!” – Joseph Snook, Wake Up America Southern Oregon

“Occupy Ashland is standing with libertarians, progressives, conservatives and the Tea-Party alike to speak out against the attack against our civil rights which is the National Defense Authorization Act. In times such as these, when the injustices of a system and a government become too large to ignore, it is vital that we stand together not as members of a political party but as fellow citizens and human beings to defend our precious freedoms.” – Emery Way Occupy

Cross-Partisan Concern about NDAA includes:

Jeff Landry (R-La) “The NDAA … includes provisions which allow the President to hold any individual associated with terrorist forces in “detention under the law of war without trial until the end of hostilities.” While these provisions do mention certain protections for American citizens, the language defining these exemptions could be interpreted a number of ways – some good and some providing no protection of our rights.” http://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/civil-rights/209527-rep-jeff-landry-r-la

ACLU: “The statute is particularly dangerous because it has no temporal or geographic limitations, and can be used by this and future presidents to militarily detain people captured far from any battlefield.” http://www.aclu.org/blog/tag/NDAA

Call to Action: Demand that President Obama Veto H.R. 658 And Scrub The DHS Wide Area Aerial Surveillance System (WAASS) It Enables

HR658 DHS WAASS Surveillance Drones: 1984 Meets Terminator

DEMAND THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA VETO H.R. 658 AND SCRUB THE DHS WIDE AREA AERIAL SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM (WAASS) IT ENABLES

Known to the clueless as the “FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012”, but recognized by the concerned as the “Skynet Surveillance Enabling Act of 2012”, H.R. 658 is now hovering at the White House just one corporate fascist puppet presidential signature away from authorizing the filling of America’s skies with as many as 30,000 “1984 Meets Terminator” Big Brother Police State citizen surveillance drones:

http://tinyurl.com/73ck6sx

http://tinyurl.com/7squjdh

We are calling on all Americans to click the “Submit a comment” link for H.R. 658 on this White House Pending Legislation page and demand that President Obama veto H.R. 658 and scrub the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Wide Area Aerial Surveillance System (WAASS) it enables:

http://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/pending-legislation

As Breach of Oath carries no penalty for our elected officials in Washington, they are understandably more accountable to the global corporate fascist elite and Citizens United Super PACs who fund their campaigns than they are to the people who elect them. Consequently, as with NDAA 2012 Obama will most likely sign the bill regardless of whatever protests are raised. But at least we will have yet another documented instance of his collusion with Congress in the ongoing criminal Seditious Conspiracy that is transforming the American Republic into the Amerikan Reich at an ever-accelerating pace.

NO MORE LEFT. NO MORE RIGHT. TIME TO UNITE. STAND AND FIGHT!

Make Way For WAASS: H.R.658 Accelerates Drone Deployment For Surveillance Of American Citizens

HR658 WAASS Skynet Surveillance Drones

MAKE WAY FOR WAASS: H.R.658 ACCELERATES DRONE DEPLOYMENT FOR SURVEILLANCE OF AMERICAN CITIZENS

Perhaps emboldened by the impotence of the ACLU, BORDC, Center for Constitutional Rights, “Oath Keepers” and other toothless rights watchdogs, as well as the inability of the Occupy Movement to break through the corporate-controlled mainstream media blackout of efforts to “Undo NDAA”, yesterday H.R.658 – euphemistically entitled the “FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act” – sailed through the U.S. Senate (75-20-5) and is now headed to the White House where our corporate fascist puppet President Barack Obama is expected to swiftly sign it into law:

http://tinyurl.com/77lsh3p

As were Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 – which despite Obama’s signing statement and other claims to the contrary do in fact codify the indefinite detention without charge or trial of American citizens on American soil – tucked neatly away in H.R.658 (and likely never read by most of our lobbified legislators) is Section 320, officially summarized as follows:

“Requires the FAA Administrator to: (1) develop plans to accelerate the integration of unmanned aerial systems [drones] into the National Airspace System, and (2) report to Congress on progress made in establishing special use airspace for the DOD to develop detection techniques for small unmanned aerial vehicles and to validate sensor integration and operation of unmanned aerial systems. Directs the DOD Secretary to establish a process to develop certification and flight standards for military unmanned aerial systems at specified test sites.”

With that exposed, a more fitting moniker for H.R.658 might be the “Skynet Surveillance Enabling Act of 2012”. According to USA Today, “Drones, perhaps best known for their combat missions in Afghanistan, are increasingly looking to share room in U.S. skies with passenger planes… Now, organizations from police forces searching for missing persons to academic researchers counting seals on the polar ice cap [are] eager to launch drones.” In more specific and less candy-coated terms, once the Wide Area Aerial Surveillance System – or WAASS (think Skynet) – drone surveillance network enabled by H.R.658 is in place, privacy in real as well as virtual space will become a thing of the past as Big Brother will be able to spy on just about anyone doing just about anything just about anywhere in the United States or elsewhere. As the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stated:

“The primary objective of WAASS is to provide persistent, long-term surveillance over urban and rural terrain at least the size of 16 km2. The surveillance system shall have an electro-optical capability for daylight missions but can have an infrared capability for day or night operations. The sensor shall integrate with an airborne platform for data gathering. The imagery data shall be displayed at a DHS operations center and have the capability for forensic analysis within 36 hours of the flight.”

And as we previously reported, “Skynet” citizen surveillance has already begun:

Protesters Find Common Ground: Tea Party & Occupy Movement Come Together in Worcester MA

Protesters Find Common Ground: Tea Party & Occupy Movement Come Together in Worcester MA

Protesters find common ground
TEA PARTY, OCCUPY MARCH IN WORCESTER

By Lee Hammel TELEGRAM & GAZETTE STAFF
lhammel@telegram.com

WORCESTER – More than 100 people who don’t agree on much agreed yesterday that a Congress that passes a law permitting the indefinite detention of Americans without charge diminishes the country.

Among them were Sheila, a 68-year-old tea party member from Worcester who brought her sign “What-cha gonna do when They come for you,” and Occupy Worcester’s Sam Capogrossi. They and a dozen others banged on a 5-gallon plastic container, trying to persuade the drivers in rush-hour traffic on Main Street that the National Defense Authorization Act that passed in December is a threat to their civil liberties. The law permits indefinite detention for terrorism suspects, American or not.

They read in unison the Bill of Rights in the plaza in front of the federal courthouse, under the watchful eyes on three Worcester police officers and two members of Homeland Security’s Federal Protective Service. There were no incidents, save for a citation written for defacing public property when an Occupy Worcester member wrote in chalk “Occupy Everywhere” on a column in Federal Plaza.

Members of each group said they admired the other group for its stand on NDAA, but except for a brief speaking portion of event, Occupy Worcester members mostly occupied the north end of the small Federal Plaza Park and tea partiers mostly the south. There was some “good discussion” among the members, but “we’re not changing any minds,” said Ken Mandile, head of the Worcester Tea Party.

Nevertheless, he said, it is impressive that the groups can put aside their differences to stand for such an important principle as the Bill of Rights.

Occupy Worcester’s Jonathan Noble said, “Anarchists, communists, and tea partiers are standing together. Even though I feel a little uncomfortable about what they (tea party members) stand for, I think it’s kind of a beautiful thing that we can stand together on this.”

Carrying a sign saying “Give Me Liberty,” Paxton tea partier Margaret Pennace said. “I think it’s a wonderful demonstration of Americanism.”

Chris Robarge of Occupy Worcester said the NDAA is written so vaguely, members of the Occupy movement or of the tea parties may learn only “the hard way” that their activities subject them to indefinite detention.

Wayne Cormier, a 64-year-old Charlton tea partier, looked around and said people need to forget talk about the political designations of left-wing and right-wing. “That’s how they keep us divided. We’ve got to change the paradigm.”

Mr. Cormer, carrying a Ron Paul sign and looking at the Occupiers around him, said, “They’ve got a good idea: the 99 percent. I guess in the NDAA, we’re the 99 percent.”

But his fellow tea partier, Marcia Wagner of Dudley, retorted, “The 99 percent is another way to divide us.”

Max Shaw, 18, a Clark University freshman, said that while some tea party members may be racist or xenophobic, those he knows have some ideas he can agree with. The student, an Occupy Worcester member from outside of Philadelphia, was the only person at the rally sanctioned by police, for writing on the stone columns in chalk.

Bob Kennedy, 64, of Worcester, an Occupy sympathizer, said that the generation of his father, who would be 90, fought and died in World War II for the Bill of Rights and to defeat fascism. “I never dreamed or thought possible that our Bill of Rights would be taken away from us” by the U.S. government, he said.

City Councilor Konstantina B. Lukes and Ronal C. Madnick, both former executive directors of the local chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, also attended the rally, as did lawyer and radio host Randy Feldman.

Petition to Supreme Court of Alaska to Block NDAA Indefinite Detention Provides Model For All

NDAA 2012 Obama + Patriot Act Bush = Same Corporate Fascism

PETITION TO SUPREME COURT OF ALASKA TO BLOCK NDAA INDEFINITE DETENTION PROVIDES MODEL FOR CITIZENS OF ALL STATES

While the mainstream media blackout keeps millions of Americans clueless about the consequences of NDAA 2012 and Constitutional Rights groups do little more than milk the issue, in Alaska one bold patriot is taking action.

###

A Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus was filed with the Supreme Court of the State of Alaska on 20 December 2011 and accepted by the Clerk of Appellate Courts on 10 January 2012 in response to the “indefinite detention without trial of American citizens” provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA 2012) by Ms. Anna M. Riezinger-von Reitz and other unnamed Petitioners:

http://alaskapatriotnews.ning.com/profile/AnnavonReitz

Assigned case number S14542, the Petition with its accompanying Addendum cites 16 specific grounds and calls upon the Court to issue the protective preemptive Writ and to refer over twenty named criminal charges including Seditious Conspiracy against the members of Congress who voted in favor of the USA Patriot Act and NDAA 2012. Ground 16 of the Petition exposes a long and well-documented history of federal government fraud and notes that America has been kept in a constant “state of emergency” for almost 80 years. Copies of the Petition and Addendum, an accompanying Notice of Dereliction of Duty filed with state officers, and a concise summary of the grounds for petition are available here:

Alaskan petitioner and freedom fighter Anna von Reiz now calls for at least 49 more patriots to step up and file similar petitions for Hawaii and the Lower 48 states. She researched, drafted and filed her petition without the assistance of a lawyer, and encourages attorneys as well as other concerned citizens across America [ ESPECIALLY THE OCCUPY WALL STREET MOVEMENT AND “KOCH FREE” TEA PARTY GROUPS ] to build on her work and follow her lead. To facilitate that action, she has provided this fill-in-the-blank template for use as a model:

Americans willing to take action to defeat NDAA 2012 and restore their Bill of Rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution that have questions about the petition preparation and filing process can submit them to Anna von Reitz via email to VVV Public Relations at “vvvpr@vvvpr.com”. They can also join the nationwide NDAA protests scheduled for Friday, 3 February:
