In Post-NDAA Amerika, What is a Terrorist and Who Can Make You Disappear by Calling You One?

IN POST NDAA AMERIKA, WHAT IS A TERRORIST AND WHO CAN MAKE YOU DISAPPEAR BY CALLING YOU ONE?

Since corporate fascist puppet president Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 into law this past New Year's Eve (NDAA: Public Law 112-81), the powers of indefinite detention claimed under the post-9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force Act (AUMF: Public Law 107-40) have been codified. Now the mere suspicion of being a "terrorist" is sufficient grounds for an American citizen - on American soil - to be arrested and detained indefinitely without charge or trial. Obvious questions of constitutionality aside, this should prompt at least the cautious to ask questions like the following:

1. What is the legal definition of "terrorist"?

2. Who can make you disappear by calling you one?

Fascism Anyone? The 14 Defining Characteristics of Fascism by Laurence W. Britt



FASCISM ANYONE? THE 14 DEFINING CHARACTERISTICS OF FASCISM BY LAURENCE W. BRITT

Originally published in the Spring 2003 edition of Free Inquiry Magazine

Laurence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. He found 14 defining characteristics common to each:

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

World War Web Advisory #5

WORLD WAR WEB ADVISORY #5: CYBERWAR: FIRST SOPA/PIPA/PCIPA/S 2105, NOW HR 2096/HR 3523/HR 3674/S 1152/S 2111

With NDAA 2012 in place and EEA in process to control the citizens, and HR 658 enabling DHS WAASS Skynet drones to surveil the skies, America's corporate-controlled Congress now shifts its focus to fast-tracking cyberfascism.

World War Web Advisory #4: S.2105 Cybersecurity Act of 2012 a.k.a. The Empire Strikes Back

WORLD WAR WEB ADVISORY #4: S. 2105 CYBERSECURITY ACT OF 2012 A.K.A. THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

Before eyes not blinded by a mainstream media controlled by the corporate fascist elite, Orwell's 1984 nightmare continues to unfold as the powers and reach of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are once again extended and codified:

"Introduced Tuesday, the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 [S 2105] would direct the Department of Homeland Security to work in concert with industry members and relevant government agencies to conduct a series of risk assessments and determine which private-sector firms would be deemed to operate "covered critical infrastructure," a crucial designation that would determine whether a private-sector entity could be subjected to new regulatory oversight."

National Defense Authorization Act Protest Scheduled: Occupy Movement & Tea Party Join Together Against NDAA

Southern 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.

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

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:

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:

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

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:

Election Reform

In 2005 Former President Jimmy Carter Co chaired a study on election reform in the United States. http://www1.american.edu/ia/cfer/report/report.html#sect2_5 I've pasted the specific recommendation regarding the use of voter photo IDs. This is a good idea and we should implement this in North Carolina to eliminate the chance for voter fraud.
