NDAA…. You better be paying attention. Reader Mail

Brandon Thompsen Writes:

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the
government fears the people, there is liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson

While many in the porn industry concern themselves with increasing piracy, low to no profits, and now mandatory condom use in Porn Valley, there are far greater issues at hand that the porn industry, like most of America, continue to remain ignorant of.

Many citizens of the United States are unaware of the reauthorization of National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 that was passed by Congress and signed into law on December 31, 2011. That’s right, while many across the nation were preparing to go party and celebrate into the New Year, President Obama signed into law rights for current sitting and future administrations to arrest and indefinitely detain anyone in the world, including Unites States citizens without being afforded due process, a public hearing or trial, and access to an attorney. Let me repeat this again. Including United States citizens.

How can this be, you say? The reason many are unaware of this law and the expansion of the fishing net in the government’s “war on terror” is because outside of a signing statement issued by President Obama, where he claims that while his administration can use this provision to detain and arrest US citizens, his will not authorize such action, it is not being reported by any of the mainstream media. In fact, their silence on the issue should be the major alarm most citizens need to confirm that further attack on rights afforded to us under the Constitution is no longer respected nor valued by the elected leaders entrusted to govern us.

For the citizens who are informed and aware of this bill’s signage, they have risen up in peaceful protest to help raise awareness and inform other citizens. These individuals have been arrested for exerting their Constitutional rights to protest peacefully. Enemy Expatriation Act.

Enemy Expatriation Act – Amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to include engaging in or purposefully and materially supporting hostilities against the United States to the list of acts for which U.S. nationals would lose their nationality. Defines “hostilities” as any conflict subject to the laws of war.

Supporters of the bill and others that continue to infringe, if not downright defecate on the Bill of Rights, claim that those who are not participating in such activities need not worry as this bill is not aimed at them. The same supporters said the same thing when they passed the PATRIOT ACT and claimed it would never be used against U.S. citizens only to be used in domestic violence and drug trafficking cases.

“I am not a friend to a very energetic government. It is always oppressive.”
– Thomas Jefferson

Our forefathers believed in liberty and justice for all. They rose up against the oppression of the British and waged war for their freedom and felt behaving any different were for those that neither deserved freedom or security. Our government has asked demanded the American people sacrifice their liberty in exchange for perceived protection.

“What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?”
– Thomas Jefferson

It is your duty and obligation to stand up in resistance to tyrannical rulers that care nothing for safety or prosperity; only what they can take from you in their attempt to force compliance and obedience. Look no further than Congress and the President’s allegiance to the banking industry and corporations to see where their loyalty lays. Failure to rise against has led to unceremonious conditioning to accept the status-quo of the American citizen much the same way the Jews complied with Hitler. Take note how well their compliance has paid off.

“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.” – Thomas Jefferson

The Federal Government has relied and depended on the laziness of its citizens to take a stand and continue to do so even when the results are not positive. Just last year, many rose up and occupied Wall Street in protest. These individuals were given time to protest under the assumption that they would protest for a couple weeks and then disperse like most normal citizens who give up. When this failed to happen and popularity increased nationally, the protests were no longer tolerated as the people became educated and informed others, threatening the status-quo.

Why should this matter to you? A better question is how can it not? Regardless of industry, career, social status, education, etc. war has been declared on those without power; the United States citizen. Combined with the corporate-run, government-backed media, Americans continue to remain in the dark as more and more of their liberties are stripped away.

Educate yourself. Learn to read between the lines of what is bring reported but more importantly, what isn’t being reported and why. Failing to do so now will be no excuse when the police state is in place. Because the person you do business with overseas may be involved in things you have no clue about and you are now suspected and assumed guilty by association even by indirect actions.

We all love to sing about freedom and liberty but now is the time to rise up and inform others to ensure our forefathers’ vision is continued on rather than the vision of modern government and the criminals that comprise it.

“Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty.”
– Thomas Jefferson

[ Personally I think George W Bush committed treason when he signed the Patriot Act, i think Barack Obama committed treason when he signed the NDAA of 2012.  They swore an oath to uphold the Constitution and they should both be held accountable for the egregious breach of that oath. ]

  1. Sadly Mike, you only have to look at the reaction to SOPA to see where things are headed.

    When it comes to personal rights and freedoms as an abstract thing, it’s pretty hard to get people riled up. Try to make it harder to pirate porn and Hollywood movies, and they are up in arms, dancing around, and shutting down their websites in protest (Wikipedia is in the process of losing a lot of credibility on this issue).

    Freedom is abstract to most people. Stealing stuff isn’t.
