Because freedom can't protect itself
Chalk up Senator Pat Toomey as a supporter of this bill. All I can hope
is that he is one of the first to feel
the results of this bill.
This is madness!
The solution is to quash the bill completely. We are becoming the very Tyrants our Forefathers warned us about.
Sorry but this country is sscrewed. Sold down the river... Again and again.
somebody's replaced almost all of the links in this story with internal links to an ACLU action site. Please fix.
oh dear god no.
Sounds like they've been taking 'Security Seminars' with Mugabe, Chavez and friends. Or is it taken straight out of the Iranian 'Book of Civil Libertie's?
America is now Amerika. The old America is gone
Nazi germany oh I mean post 9/11 usa
In ancient Rome when Senators and Congressmen acted up, they were put to the sword, or fed to the lions! Sounds good to me!
So which Senators are in favor of this US battleground folly?
Do we even need the Udall Amendment? Why not just a straight NO vote on the original bill?
The solution is to vote these assholes out of office, or a new DEMOCRACY founded on top of the ashes of this stinking republic.
It is actions like the contents of S. 1867 (the National Defense Authorization Act bill) done IN SECRET that are unAmerican!
Why not urge senators to vote down the bill altogether and then an amendment would be superfluous?
Apparently they've never heard of the Posse Comitatus Act.
I haven't read the Udall amendment, but it seems the aclu is supporting indefinite detention of citizens if reviewed by Congress. If so, why?
The 1% is scared.
Instead of urging senators to amend this bill we should demand they vote against it.
Goodbye John McCain,Don't tread on me my friend! I fought for freedom,liberty and justice.A free land with certain rights.I am an Oathkeeper.Never on my watch! Skip Stranahan for we The People
F* these douchecakes...they can have my body but will never have my soul.
If this law passes, and I was president, I would use it to indefinately detain congress!
Hey, isn't this..erm..Martial Law?
I think its time to arrest and try the senate for treason...
So why doesn't the ACLU support the 2nd Amendment which is the safeguard written into the Bill of Rights to prevent this?
"And then they come for you." is knock, knock, knocking on your door.
Sing Daisy for me again Senators.
What do you mean "even" Ron Paul? He is always, always at the forefront of trying to keep government from overreaching its constitutional authority!
vote NO on the entire insane bill, not yes to an amendment. That is a crazy idea.
GITMO for EVERYBODY
This policy is already being used so this senate vote is irrelevant unless it curtails murder by presidential decree!
Washington DC declares war on the United States.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know this is wrong!
Welcome to NAZI America!
This is a direct violation of both Fourth and Seventh Amendment rights and therefore it won't stand, even if it does pass.
How about just shutting down the bill altogether. No bill or Udall amendment.
looks like implementation of nwo finale is coming soon to a secret prison near you.
How about instead of saying yes to the Udall amendment we say no to the first one.
I could name some war criminals they could start with detaining.
Is there a war going on within the USA? Are there armed units within the US which are attacking the US military within the US? If so, then the US is already a battle zone.
And people think we can trust any of our Senators to look our for our interests?
Legally, all Bills are to originate in the Congress, not the Senate. Same thing with Obamacare, Un-Constitutional originated in the Senate.
Military Industrial Complex going to work!
Crap, what do I do when my senator is Mr. Levin? Yeah, I know, vote the bum out of office.
Your post is very disturbing. However it is also very repetitious and redundant. You should consider revising.
This should be exposed .
I'm already locked and loaded preparing for the next false flag final takeover. If this passes, I'll be sure to always pack and be ready to fight for my God given rights!
It says in Section 1032 (b)- 1&2 that these powers wouldn't extend to US Citizens or Resident Aliens.
Fire them!!!! They are nazis!!!!
Awesome! And I am the first to leave a comment. And I am in Kanada (but I still pay attention and know, what's not cool in Amerika is not gonna be cool in Kanada either.
"Yes" on the Udall Amendment? Are you OUT OF YOUR GODDAMNED MIND?
NO to the whole idea.
