Our concerns about Sec. 1031 are ignored. The reconcile conference committee has produced a final version of NDAA, which Obama says he will not veto. US citizens are NOT exempted from being arrested and detained without charge or trial. See my post of Dec. 14, 2011: “U.S. Citizens Still Subject to Detention w/out Trial in Final Version of Defense Bill.”
See also, “There Really Are FEMA Camps.”
Congressman Allen West (R-Florida) has been named a member of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA) Conference, reports Right Side News, Dec. 9, 2011.
The Senate version of the NDAA, S. 1867, is that obscene piece of legislation that authorizes the President to have the military arrest and detain, without charge or trial, certain “covered persons” (in S 1867’s Sec. 1031) “at war” with the United States. But those “covered persons” can include U.S. citizens.
S. 1867 also contains Sec. 551(d) that, by repealing Art. 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, effectively legalizes sodomy and bestiality in the U.S. military.
It should be noted that the House version of the NDAA, HR1540, does neither.
The NDAA Conference is a select group of bipartisan members from both the U. S. House of Representatives and the Senate which will begin hammering out the final provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012.
If you think the appointment of Allen West to the NDAA Conference automatically means he will seek to eliminate S. 1867’s Sec. 1301 and 551(d), don’t. This is the comment West made on his appointment:
“It is an honor to be a member of the conference setting policies for the Department of Defense to be successful in keeping our country safe. As a 22-year United States Army Veteran, I look forward to sharing my insight on what I believe is most important in this bill – a bill that will ultimately determine the future of our Armed Services. It is important the final version of the National Defense Authorization Act include the cuts to wasteful defense spending I proposed. It is also just as important that the NDAA protect essential Defense programs. I am confident my 22 years in the United States Army will provide insight to the conference.”
That suggests all West cares about are defense spending and cuts. Forget not that West had voted in favor of the debt deal Obama made with Congress, aka the oxymoronic Budget Control Act of 2011, which raised the debt ceiling of the already heavily indebted federal government by $2+ trillion.
Please contact Congressman West to convey to him your concerns about the detention without trial of U.S. citizens and the legalization of sodomy and bestiality in the U.S. military. Here’s his contact info:

H/t beloved fellow Tina.

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, a TEA Party favorite, is one of the 66 House Republicans who refused to vote for Obama’s disastrous debt deal, aka the
Budget Control Addicted to Debt Act of 2011. The passage of that act immediately led S&P to downgrade America’s credit rating.
Bachmann is also polling well among Republican voters. And so, of course, like a pack of ravenous wolves, the Left are already pouncing on her, with Hollywood’s pro-gay brigade leading the way.
Now the MSM are joining the jihad.
The upcoming edition of Newsweek magazine has a cover story on Michele Bachmann titled, “The Queen of Rage.” This is the photo of Bachmann which Newsweek has on its cover.
Tell me if you don’t think she looks just a tad crazy.
Bachmann made the mistake of letting Newsweek‘s photographer Chris Buck take the picture.
When will Conservatives ever learn that the MSM are not our friends; will never be objective, even less our friends; and will do their utmost to make Conservatives look bad.
If you want a friend, get a dog!

Yesterday, the disastrous so-called Budget Control Act of 2011 became law. The law increases the US debt limit by more than $2 trillion; promises spending cuts that include defense; and creates a Super Committee of 12 who can raise taxes and cut entitlements.
Many conservatives feel dismayed and discouraged. We’ve played, peacefully, by the rules. We formed or joined TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party groups; blogged; wrote/called the White House and our representatives in Washington, DC; and dutifully trotted to the voting booths last November 2nd. Our efforts were rewarded with a historic midterm election that voted in a tidal wave of Republicans to state governorships, to the U.S. Senate, and to form a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Despite all our efforts, the Republicans in the House caved in and approved the debt deal with Obama. And so, yesterday Obama signed the bill into law.
Adding to our disillusionment is the fact that 70% of the GOP freshman class had voted to support the budget deal, among them is Florida’s Allen West. Many of the turncoats had been elected last November with the support of the Tea Party movement whose major cause is precisely that of cutting federal spending and reducing deficits.
So what do we do now?
I asked the other writers of the Fellowship to do some brainstorming. Simply and starkly, there really are only three choices:
1. Continue to work within the system:
We redouble our efforts and get ready for the 2012 elections. We vote out the GOP turncoats; re-elect those Republicans who had voted against the debt deal (go here for their names); vote for a true conservative in the Republican presidential primary; and most important of all, get Obama out of the White House! On that last task, here’s a hopeful message from political maven Dick Morris:
2. Overthrow the present corrupt system and restore the Constitution:
That’s a move never to be taken lightly, not only because of the certain losses of life and property, but also because of the uncertainty of success. As best as I know, there is not even a whiff of serious disaffection, even less of rebellion, among the U.S. military. But without the backing of the military, or at least a part of it, attempting a second American Revolution is quixotic and suicidal.
3. Drop out of the system:
We hit the bastards in the wallet and do whatever we can to cut off the flow of cash to Washington. We stop spending other than absolute necessities; do cash only transactions; cut up our credit cards; get our money out of banks, or at a minimum out of global banks and into local banks and credit unions. We circle the wagons, protect the homestead, and go into survivalist mode.
Seriously though, how many of us can or will do that?
So in the end, I keep coming back to Option One: Work Within the System. Ask yourself these questions:
- Is there more I can do, in labor and dollars, to get the right people into office?
- Am I in good fighting shape — physically, mentally, spiritually — for the battle? If not, get in shape!
- If I am able (financially, family-wise) and have the aptitude (knowledge and understanding of politics; public speaking) to run for public office, why am I not doing it? Whom am I waiting for?
- If I feel besieged, what about those House Republicans who went against their leader, that spineless RINO John Boehner, and voted against the debt deal? If your Congressman/woman is one of the 66 Samurai, send them a “Thank You” note or phonecall! (go here for the names of the 66).
Lastly, do not give in to despair. That’s a sure way for our opponents to win.
There is always hope.
I welcome your suggestions, ideas, proposals.
