UNITED STATES FREEDOM ARMY

END OF MONTH REPORT AS OF 08/31/2014

 

 CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOM MARCH

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

“When your children and grandchildren ask you what happened to America make sure you can say ‘I tried my best to stop it’.”

“An excuse is an explanation of failure.”

“Do not ask for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee.”

________________________________________

MARCH ON WASHINGTON D.C.:  NO WEAPONS AT THE MUSTER POINT OR THEREAFTER. 

This is our last appeal.  Anyone and everyone who will be attending and has not informed us – we need to know now.  The March has changed.  There will no longer be a specified route for the Cross Country March.

We will hold the specified route concept in abeyance until next year when it will be reevaluated. For a variety of reasons we are cancelling the specified route for the March and each person will be responsible for getting to the Muster Point in their own way. You may construct your own March, you may fly in to D.C., take your RV or develop any scenario you so desire to reach the Muster Point to meet on September 17, 2014 (Constitution Day).

NO WEAPONS AT THE MUSTER POINT OR THEREAFTER. 

The Muster Point this year will be the Springfield Mall in Springfield, VA. We will meet from 8:30 A.M. to 9:30 A.M. at the Muster Point. We will then travel from there by METRO to the Capitol. The Springfield Mall is very close to the intersection of I-95 and I-495. The Springfield Mall is bounded on the North by Franconia Road E., on the East by Frontier Road, on the South by Spring Mall Rd., and on the West by Loisdale Road. We will meet on the South section of the mall on Spring Mall Rd. about halfway between Loisdale Road and Frontier Road. From the Southeast corner of the Springfield Mall it is only about ¼ mile to the METRO Franconia-Springfield Station from where we will take the BLUE Line getting off at the METRO L’Enfant  Station and walking four blocks to the meeting point. It is almost impossible to park in D.C. on a weekday and even if you can find a place it will cost you $50 to $60 to park whereas the METRO station parking is $4.75. The total cost to park and ride the METRO round trip will be about $15.

There are no public restrooms (except for emergencies) on the METRO trains or in the METRO stations. When we get to the meeting point there will be restrooms available. You have been warned! Take precautions as necessary. There is a restaurant near the Comfort Inn off Loisdale Road that serves breakfast and has restrooms. There is also a restaurant just off Franconia Road E. in the Springfield Mall.

The METRO ride to the Capitol takes about 30 minutes. We will meet on the lawn between the Capitol and the Washington Monument and directly across from the Air and Space Museum on that side of the lawn.

There are hotels/motels on Loisdale Road near the Northwest portion of the Springfield Mall. They are the Hilton Hotel, Hampton Inn, Comfort Inn and the Courtyard Marriott. The Marriott is slightly farther than the others and is near the intersection of Loisdale Road and Franconia Road W. Those of you who fly in to Reagan Airport and do not wish to rent a car may get on the Blue Line at Reagan Airport and go to the Franconia-Springfield Station and walk to one of the hotels/motels mentioned above. The walk is about ½ mile. Reservations suggested.

Dress and act like the fine patriotic people you are. If you wish to wear military apparel that is fine. If you are active duty military get permission from your commander before wearing any active duty military apparel.

NO WEAPONS AT THE MUSTER POINT OR THEREAFTER. 

We are planning on making this an annual event. Be thinking of how we can get some publicity, local news coverage, TV, or whatever. Anyone may participate in this march and they do not have to be enlisted with us. We will leave the Capitol at approximately 6:00 P.M. and return to the Muster Point. At approximately 7:00 P.M. we will meet for dinner at a location near the Muster Point to be announced on September 17.

We need people to be at the Muster Point so we can go to Washington D.C. and make our complaints clear.  Did you read the five quotes at the top of this report? If not, read them again. This is the time. We especially need the people from VA, MD, DE, WV, TN, NC and other nearby states to come help us on September 17. Bring any like-minded people you know with you – the more people we have the more government areas we can cover. We need to cover the Congress, Supreme Court, the IRS and as many Executive Branch offices as we can. There is no need to go to the White House since it will not do any good.

Respond to presidentialdiary@gmail.com if you are planning to attend.

We need patriots in Washington, D.C. on September 17.

If you absolutely cannot come, we need you to pass out flyers in your local area on September 17. If you cannot pass them out on September 17 pass them out as closely as you possibly can to September 17. The best place to pass them out is at your nearest military installation – we need to remind our military of their oath. If you cannot get to a military installation pass them out at your local federal government offices. IRS offices or any federal court is good. Find a federal government agency near you and pass them out. As a last resort go to your local Post Office and pass them out. Before you go to any of these federal government entities make sure you do some reconnaissance and find out what the rules are. We want to do all of this in a perfectly legal manner and we want to pass these flyers out all over the nation.

Some of you are disappointed because we are only passing out flyers. This is what we can do at this time. If it helps you to visualize this look at the flyer as your weapon, look at the words on the flyer as your ammunition, and look at the work in D.C. as maneuvers and reconnaissance.

The flyers are extremely important to what we are attempting to accomplish. The first step is to make crystal clear what your complaint consists of in the shortest possible way. Anything over one page is too long and no one will read it. It must be short and to the point. During Operation American Spring they passed out large packets with volumes of information inside. No one will read that much information unless they are being paid to do so. We want a short printed record of our position that cannot be misunderstood.

Let us know as soon as possible if you will be coming to the Muster Point and how many you will be bringing. People do not have to be enlisted to participate.

RECRUITING UPDATE AS OF 8/31/2014:

As many of you know, we are spending our first year only recruiting. We will never stop recruiting of course, but we will have other objectives in addition to recruiting after our first year.  This web site was launched on September 17 (Constitution Day), 2013 and we started recruiting about 5 days later.

TX still leads in total recruits with 10.4% of all recruits. Following TX is CA (8.0%) FL (7.2%) NC (4.2%) GA (3.8%) PA (3.4%) TN (3.3%) NY (3.3%). CA and PA both had a good month.

Based upon state population for states with over two million in population the top eight are:  TN MS AL NV SC NC OK KY. OK and KY both had a good showing in August. States with under two million in population are led by WY, NH, ME, ID and NE.

This paragraph is not statistically accurate and is an approximation since some of our enlistees do not give us complete information. Our female enlistees are staying at about 4 out of every 10. About 45% of all enlistees (including some female) have military experience. We have every military grade from E-1 to E-9, W1 to W4, and O-1 to O-7. We have military with Silver Stars, Bronze Stars and Purple Hearts. We have military with all types of training and awards. Of all enlistees about 65% are in the age category 40-60. About 20% are over 60 and about 15% are under 40. Our over 60 people increased in August. We had several people enlist in August who were born in the 40s and early 50s with military experience – these are almost all Vietnam veterans. This is why we increased our over 60 percentage from 15% to 20%. We also had some younger people enlist in August and that is encouraging.

Recruiting in Nov. 2013 exceeded Oct. 2013 by 24%. Recruiting in Dec. 2013 exceeded Nov. 2013 by 43%. Recruiting in Jan. 2014 exceeded Dec. 2013 by 97%. January enlistees reached 95% of all the previous months combined. Jan. 2014 was a huge month. In February, due to various technical problems, we were only able to recruit for 18 of the 28 days. It is therefore unfair to compare February to any other month. Still, in February and despite all the setbacks, we exceeded our recruiting totals for every other previous month except January 2014 – those results were extremely encouraging. March 2014 was our seventh largest recruiting month. April 2014 was our third largest recruiting month. May 2014 was our sixth largest recruiting month. June 2014 was our fourth largest recruiting month almost reaching April 2014. We are extremely encouraged by the May and June results since often in late May and early June people will not participate due to graduations, vacations and weddings. July 2014 was our largest recruiting month topping January 2014 by 20%. July 3, 4, 5 were our 4th, 5th, and 3rd largest recruiting days ever as the patriotic spirit was kindled by Independence Day. August, in spite of several minor technical problems that hampered us parts of the entire month, was our fifth largest recruiting month just missing June.

During the first five full months after September 2013 we had already surpassed our recruiting goal for the entire first year. Thank you to each one of you for your courage and patriotism. We do not give out strength reports but we can tell everyone that our total strength is >1,000 and <10,000.

We are now in all 50 states, and 11 other countries. We also have enlistees in Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico. Most of the people enlisted in other countries are Americans living outside the United States. We are like Washington’s Continental Army, however, in the sense that we will welcome help from anyone who is a patriot and wants to see our Constitution restored.

What is the most encouraging are the many people who have enlisted from small towns in America. This is a small town revolution – the people who have not been heard are beginning to speak up. While we have enlistees in many major cities, it is the voices in small town America that ring loudest. The Founder has been in all 50 states and has never heard of many of these cities so we have been looking them up on the Internet – impressive. Find the people in your small town who are fed up and get them enlisted and then form a unit in your town.

As a change of pace this month (and to see if you are paying attention) we have listed below the cities in each state that have the most people enlisted. Many of these are as expected but you will also find some surprises in the list.

Wasilla AK              Huntsville AL         Hot Springs AR         Phoenix AZ

San Diego CA         Denver CO             New Haven CT         Frankford DE

Jacksonville FL       Atlanta GA             Honolulu HI              Des Moines IA

Meridian ID            Chicago IL              Indianapolis IN        Wichita KS

Louisville KY           Shreveport LA       Boston MA               Baltimore MD

Portland ME           Lansing MI             St. Paul MN              St. Louis MO

Laurel MS               Butte MT                Raleigh NC               Richardton ND

Omaha NE             Concord NH           Toms River NJ          Albuquerque NM

Las Vegas NV         Rochester NY         Toledo OH                Tulsa OK

Portland OR           Philadelphia PA     Wakefield RI             Anderson SC

Rapid City SD         Nashville TN           San Antonio TX        Salt Lake City UT

Virginia Beach VA Plainfield VT           Spokane WA            Milwaukee WI

Princeton WV        Greybull WY

Notes: In the event of a tie we awarded it to the city with the smallest population. New York City, NY would have been the largest in NY except many people signed up by borough and we didn’t add all the boroughs together as one group.

————————————————————————

CONSTITUTIONAL VIOLATIONS:

The United States Freedom Army is concerned about continuous constitutional violations in the five areas listed in the attached flyer. These violations are listed in their relative order of importance and are so long running and egregious they can no longer be condoned. The flyer attached to this report delineates these grievances. You may use it to make copies and pass it out at any meetings, at the VFW Hall, post it on billboards, give it to friends, or whatever you may decide.

NOTE: On September 17 we will be passing out these flyers in Washington, D.C. We need as many people there as possible so we can reach as many people as possible in the three branches of our federal government. We need to know as soon as possible how many people will be at the Muster Point on September 17. If you cannot participate with us in Washington D.C. we will have other things for you to do in your local area on that day. See the section above “Cross Country March on Washington D.C.” for more updated information.

We realize that the information in the note above will disappoint some people but it is the best we can do at this point in time given all the circumstances. We want to do the best we can to achieve distribution of our flyer and make the feelings of everyone regarding the abuse of the United States Constitution known.

The flyer itself has a camouflage background and a gold stripe but it was designed so it can be copied in either color or black & white. When copied in black & white it loses the camouflage and gold stripe but is still effective and is very inexpensive to copy in black & white. The words are what count and the words are what we wish to communicate.

PLEASE NOTE AGAIN: THE FLYER FOR YOUR USE IS IN THE LINK BELOW

———————————————————————–

NEW POST:

The website post this month will be about the Constitutional Freedom March. We want people who log on to the website to know that an event is taking place and to encourage them to enlist and participate.

——————————————————————————-

CONSTITUTION:

We support all efforts by any organization to “resurrect” the United States Constitution. Whenever we hear about any effort to restore the Constitution we will record it here.

——————————————————————————-

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:

We are a group of people who want to see the United States Constitution followed and, by implication, this leviathan federal government dismantled. We intend to follow all laws and proceed peacefully to attempt to achieve this goal. This is the thrust of our effort at this time.

We are not at present a militia but circumstances in the future may alter that situation. What we do or become depends upon what occurs in Washington, D.C. and what occurs in D.C. may alter our goals and approach. Since we cannot see into the future it is not possible to say what may be required as time passes and events unfold.

THIS IS A REAL ARMY! WE ARE TOGETHER! THE CONSTITUTION HAS BEEN ABUSED AND IGNORED FOR TOO LONG! WE WANT ALL THREE BRANCHES OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO START READING IT!

YOU MAY FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO ANYONE YOU WISH.

UNITED STATES FREEDOM ARMY

WE SIGN IN BOLD LETTERS

                                       JOHN HANCOCK

MY TWO SENSE: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC AND A DEMOCRACY by JUST ME


WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC AND A DEMOCRACY

by JUST ME

September 5, 2013

It’s unfortunate that many Americans do not know their nation’s history, their Founding Documents, or the extent of their intrinsic rights.  Many, if not most, people believe America is a Democracy and know nothing about our Constitutional Republic form of government.  The differences may be subtle, but the consequences are major. 

The United States Constitution, given to us by the Founders, was intended to be a contract between the Founders and We, the People.  It is NOT, and never has been an agreement between that Document and the ruling elite, the federal government.  Nowhere, within the Constitution, is the word “democracy” used, yet even those who should know better continue to mistakenly refer to our form of government as a Democracy.  Is that purposeful and to some nefarious end?  Who knows, but I suspect that those who should know better, do know better!  The Founders understood that Democracy is a dangerous form of government in that it grants the balance of power to the central government and not to the People.  By design, a Democracy is open to unbridled corruption, oppression of the people, and it is always the stepping-off point to socialism, communism, or any other kind of “ism” there is.  The fact that there is so little outrage over such widespread government corruption reflects that when a people see themselves without options, they accept what they otherwise would not tolerate. 

Our Founders gave us a set of principles, guidelines, and responsibilities by which we are to live if we wish to remain free. Those principles give full authority to We, the People and none to the government to the extent it has become today.  Our US Constitution tells Americans that it is our duty to remove and replace those representatives who do not stand for the principles and guidelines the Founders provided.   Furthermore, We, the People, are held accountable for the well-being of our own freedom, and we are the watchdogs and caretakers of freedom’s future.  Not only are we responsible for the freedom of future generations, we owe a great deal to all those who have given their lives in the fight  for liberty then and now.  President Abraham Lincoln, in his Gettysburg Address, said; “Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. . . (and) to the unfinished work which they who . . . gave the last full measure of devotion .  . . we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”  

Lincoln pointed out a truism that is timeless.  Americans have, and will continue to give, their lives in the name of freedom.  When Americans turn a blind eye to that truth, when they disregard the fact that freedom has a cost, and when they mock respect for US soldiers, past and present, they are, at the same time, spitting on the graves of those who gave their lives for the freedom all enjoy today!

The Founders also gave us a process by which to add, remove, or change Amendments, within the Constitution, when and if the People ever see fit.  That process was not given to the government, and the government is not legally entitled to circumvent the Constitution whenever it pleases.  They gave us three branches of government to act as checks and balances so that one branch does not become more powerful than the others.   Today, the Executive Branch operates, on its own, regardless of the principles and guidelines the Founders gave us and which were and are meant to hold the leaders accountable.  Just remember that it is the People who have the authority, as well as the responsibility to throw off tyranny and oppression.  This Administration will not stop of its own volition until it has complete control and has achieved the “fundamental transformation of America.” 

In essence, the United States Constitution, is being shredded by this Administration’s illegal Executive Orders, the removal of America’s right to due process, and the extermination of American citizens without proof of guilt.  None of these action are about national security.  It is about national control.

GODFATHER POLITICS by GARY DEMAR


What to Do Now If You’re a Conservative and Get Audited by the IRS

If you are a conservative who is a regular reader of the articles on this site, then you are a target. If you donate to conservative causes, you are an enemy of the “Progressive” agenda. If you oppose government unions and their sweetheart collective “bargaining” deals with the Democrats, you are, in the words of union boss Jimmy Hoffa, Jr., a “son of a bitch.”

As a result, you may get audited for no other reason than to intimidate you and the people you know. If you do get a letter from the IRS requesting an audit, be professional and non-threatening in your response, but ask for factual data that gives evidence of probable cause and cite the current criminal activity of the inner workings of the IRS as a reason for your skepticism of the agency’s objectivity.

The actions by the IRS concerning conservative groups are criminal. The head of the agency has resigned or was forced to resign. What’s becoming clear is the IRS has been using its draconian powers to curb political dissent. Every tyrannical government has used bureaucracies to further its agenda. No one man — not even the god-like Barack Obama — can control everything.

Ludwig von Mises captures for us the insidious nature of the bureaucratic State:

“The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement. They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship. They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent. They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office. Every man but one a subordinate clerk in a bureau. What an alluring utopia! What a noble cause to fight!”

The goal is the perpetuation of the bureaucratic State. Administrations come and go, but bureaucrats go on forever.

Patriot movements and the Tea Party are a threat to the System. They had to be stopped. Talk about cutting spending and regulations would mean a smaller government work force which would have resulted in lower vote totals for the “Progressive” agenda which, of course, is to maintain the statist status quo and keep the bureaucracy in power.

C. S. Lewis wrote that there is no point in telling State officials to mind their own business since in their mind, “Our whole lives are their business.”

In 1926, H. L. Mencken wrote that the State

“has taken on a vast mass of new duties and responsibilities; it has spread out its powers until they penetrate to every act of the citizen, however secret; it has begun to throw around its operations the high dignity and impeccability of a State religion; its agents become a separate and superior caste, with authority to bind and loose, and their thumbs in every pot. But it still remains, as it was in the beginning, the common enemy of all well-disposed, industrious and decent men.”

It’s time for some political push back, and if the present crop of Republicans aren’t willing to do it, then out with the old and in with the new.

GODFATHER POLITICS by PHILIP HODGES (MY TWO SENSE: EMAIL TO KANSAS GOVERNOR SAM BROWNBACK–Governor Sam Brownback: Sir, please do not back down from thug, Eric Holder, and this Administration gang. We, the People of the United States, implore all officials across our nation to stand firm in the fight for this intrinsic human right. Thus far, Progressives have taken down so much infrastructure that it will take us 50 to 100 years to get this nation back on firm Constitutionally Republic ground. We are in the throws of “the ends justifies the means” and have lost the responsibility toward the individual citizen and exchanged that for Obama’s “collectivism,” which is just another name for Communism or Marxism. If you add your name to those who have already folded, under threats and intimidation tactics that Washington always flings at opposition, we will all have to live with the consequences. It takes courage to stand for right–believe me, I know, and it is often independently and alone. There are millions of Americans behind you. Sincerely, MO Patriot


Eric Holder Threatens Kansas Over Gun Control Nullification Bill

 “In purporting to override federal law and to criminalize the official acts of federal officers, SB102 directly conflicts with federal law and is therefore unconstitutional. … Under the Supremacy Clause…Kansas may not prevent federal employees and officials from carrying out their official responsibilities.  And a state certainly may not criminalize the exercise of federal responsibilities.  Because SB102 conflicts with federal firearms laws and regulations, federal law supercedes this new statute; all provisions of federal laws and their implementing regulations therefore continue to apply.”

First of all, where does the Constitution give the federal government the authority to regulate firearms at all? It doesn’t, and that’s why anything the feds do with respect to gun control, no matter how well-intentioned, is unconstitutional.

This is what the 10th Amendment is about:  “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” You can’t get much clearer than that. There is no power delegated to the federal government to regulate guns. Nor is any such law prohibited by the Constitution from being enacted by the states.

And then Holder has to bring up the Supremacy Clause. We’ve been through this many times before. He seems to think that whatever the feds do is authorized by the very nature of it being from the feds. But that’s not what the so-called Supremacy Clause says. It’s taken from Article VI of the Constitution:

 “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.” [Emphasis mine]

We’ve already established that any federal law restricting or regulating firearms is unconstitutional, because the Constitution does not grant the feds any such authority. If the federal government is enacting laws and creating agencies in direct opposition to what the Constitution says, they’re the ones in violation. They’re the ones that are unconstitutional.

And since the Constitution doesn’t grant these authorities to the feds, and since it doesn’t prohibit states from enacting these laws, on the matter of gun control, the states are sovereign.

And on top of that, the 2nd Amendment says “shall not be infringed.” So the feds are completely wrong on all accounts.

Governor Brownback responded to Holder (in part):

 “The right to keep and bear arms is a right that Kansans hold dear. It is a right enshrined not only in the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, but also protected by the Kansas Bill of Rights…The people of Kansas have repeatedly and overwhelmingly reaffirmed their commitment to protecting this fundamental right. The people of Kansas are likewise committed to defending the sovereignty of the State of Kansas as guaranteed in the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the United States Constitution…”

Right now, Governor Brownback needs encouragement not to back down from the feds. He can be reached here by e-mail. Kansans can reach him at 785-296-3232. And here’s his address:

GODFATHER POLITICS by GARY DEMAR


Hitler Said It First: The Children Belong to the Community

Posted 3 hours ago by

First it was Hillary Clinton’s It Takes a Village to raise children by community effort and cost. Now it’s über-leftist Melissa Harris-Perry who says it takes a “community” to care for children. By “community” she means the State. She teaches at Tulane University, and before that she corrupted the minds of young people at Princeton and the University of Chicago. She also has a television presence on MSNBC. She’s a menace to society.

Like all good liberals, Harris-Perry believes that she and her cadre of social do-gooders are better equipped to raise other people’s children, the ones that survive abortion, that is. Prior to the collective taking over the care of our children, according to Harris-Perry, you can kill them at will. They are “things” until the State says they are beneficial to the State and should live.

Former Texas Republican senator Phil Gramm tells the story about the time he was on an interview show with an educational elitist who held to a worldview similar to that of Harris-Perry. He told her, “My educational policies are based on the fact that I care more about my children than you do.” She said, “No, you don’t.” Gramm replied, “Okay: What are their names?”

Dem. Congressman Hank Johnson: Amend Constitution To Restrict Freedom Of Speech

http://conservativevideos.com/2012/11/dem-congressman-hank-johnson-amend-constitution-to-restrict-freedom-of-speech/

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) says, “corporations control the patterns of thinking” in the United States and that the Bill of Rights to the Constitution should be amended so that the government is given the power to restrict freedom of speech.

“We need a constitutional amendment to allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations,” said Johnson.

SEE YOU IN A DAY OR SO–I NEED A BREATHER. JM


I never thought a Presidential election would be as important as this present one!   It’s been exhausting, yet informative, and if I didn’t know before, I know now why I see things the way I do.  The United States Constitution is the most precious document we have, and it is very unfortunate that most people don’t know anything about it–its roots, its purpose, or its history.  The one thing I want to do, if it takes me the rest of my life, and that is to teach folks about this Republic we gave up on.  I want it back!  And if everyone knew what a Republic is and how it is supposed to work, everyone would also fight to the death to take it back!

What If The Media Actually Told The Truth?

August 23, 2012 by

Hello. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Today’s video commentary is about a strange concept: What if the media actually decided to tell the truth? Have you seen the latest Newsweek magazine cover out this week? Ultra-left Newsweek’s cover story features a photo of Obama and the headline: “Hit the Road Barack, Why We Need a New President.” My, how the mighty have fallen! Is it possible the mainstream media are finally starting to grasp what I predicted three months ago: that Obama will lose in a landslide? Has the first domino fallen? As the media realize that Obama will not only lose, but lose big, I predict this will be the first of many negative headlines for Obama. After all, no one likes to bet on a lame horse.

While appearing on “Meet the Press,” Tom Brokaw weighed in on the problem of the national deficit. The retired news anchor said that it has only gotten worse under President Barack Obama’s watch.

The Obama campaign has repeatedly harped on the unclear economic plan of Mitt Romney. Brokaw said that Romney should turn the tables and ask the President to describe in specific detail what he plans to do to reverse the problem he has caused.

“I do think that the governor is right, and we’ll expect to hear Governor Romney go after President Obama this time about ‘I want more details about your plan. You keep harping on me. I haven’t heard the details in your plan as well.’”

He went on to insinuate that the President needs to take responsibility.

Referring to debates that Obama was involved in before he was President, Brokaw commented, “President Obama was saying, ‘Look we’ve got a deficit of a half of a trillion dollars. I’m gonna get that under control.’ Well this week, that deficit is 1.1 trillion dollars and it happened on his watch.”

Obama: Detention OK for 1st Amendment ‘activities’

Order preventing enforcement appealed by Department of Justice

The Obama administration is battling to restore a controversial provision of a new federal law that it admits could have been used to arrest and detain citizens indefinitely – even if their actions were protected by the First Amendment.

A federal judge this week made permanent an injunction against enforcement of Section 1021 of the most recent National Defense Authorization Act, which was declared unconstitutional.

The Obama administration then took only hours to file an appeal of the order from U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest, and attorneys also asked her to halt enforcement of her order.

In her order, Forrest wrote, “The government put forth the qualified position that plaintiffs’ particular activities, as described at the hearing, if described accurately, if they were independent, and without more, would not subject plaintiffs to military detention under Section 1021.”

But she continued, “The government did not – and does not – generally agree or anywhere argue that activities protected by the First Amendment could not subject an individual to indefinite military detention under Section 1021.”

The case was brought last January by a number of writers and reporters, led by New York Times reporter Christopher Hedges. The journalists contend the controversial section allows for detention of citizens and residents taken into custody in the U.S. on “suspicion of providing substantial support” to anyone engaged in hostilities against the U.S.

The lawsuit alleges the law is vague and could be read to authorize the arrest and detention of people whose speech or associations are protected by the First Amendment. They wonder whether interviewing a member of al-Qaida would be considered “substantial support.”

“Here, the stakes get no higher: indefinite military detention – potential detention during a war on terrorism that is not expected to end in the foreseeable future, if ever. The Constitution requires specificity – and that specificity is absent from Section 1021,” the judge wrote.

Dan Johnson, a spokesman with People Against the NDAA, told WND it took only hours for the government to file an appeal to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals.

“It most definitely tells us something about their intent,” he told WND.

He cited Obama’s signing statement, when the bill was made law, that he would not use the provision allowing detention of American citizens without probable cause in military facilities.

“Just because someone says something doesn’t mean they’re not lying,” he said.

Bloomberg reports the Obama administration also is asking Forrest for a stay of the ruling that found the law violates the First, Fifth and 14th Amendments.

The judge expressed dissatisfaction with what one observer described as the arrogance of the Department of Justice in the case.

Forrest asked the government to define the legal term, noting the importance of how they apply to reporting and other duties.

“The court repeatedly asked the government whether those particular past activities could subject plaintiffs to indefinite military detention; the government refused to answer,” she wrote.

“The Constitution places affirmative limits on the power of the executive to act, and these limits apply in times of peace as well as times of war,” she wrote.

She said the law “impermissibly impinges on guaranteed First Amendment rights and lacks sufficient definitional structure and protection to meet the requirements of due process.”

“This court rejects the government’s suggestion that American citizens can be placed in military detention indefinitely, for acts they could not predict might subject them to detention, and have as their sole remedy a habeas petition adjudicated by a single decision-maker (a judge versus a jury), by a ‘preponderance of the evidence’ standard,” she wrote.

“That scenario dispenses with a number of guaranteed rights,” she said.

The Obama administration already has described those who hold a pro-life position or support third-party presidential candidates or the Second Amendment fit the profile of a domestic terrorist.

Obama stated when he put his signature to the legislative plan that his administration “will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens.”

Virginia already has passed a law that states it would not cooperate with such detentions, and several local jurisdictions have done the same. Arizona, Rhode Island, Maryland, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Washington also have considered similar legislation.

The case was brought on behalf of Christopher Hedges, Daniel Ellsberg, Jennifer Bolen, Noam Chomsky, Alex O’Brien, Kai Warg All, Brigitta Jonsottir and the group U.S. Day of Rage. Many of the plaintiffs are authors or reporters who stated that the threat of indefinite detention by the U.S. military already had altered their activities.

Constitutional expert Herb Titus filed a friend-of-the-court brief on behalf of the sponsor of the Virginia law, Delegate Bob Marshall and others.

Titus, an attorney with William J. Olson, P.C., told WND the judge’s first decision to grant a preliminary injunction halting enforcement of paragraph 1021 “affirms the constitutional position taken by Delegate Marshall is correct.”

The impact is that “the statute does not have sufficient constitutional guidelines to govern the discretion of the president in making a decision whether to hold someone in indefinite military detention,” Titus said.

The judge had noted that the law doesn’t have a requirement that there be any knowledge that an act is prohibited before a detention. The judge also said the law is vague, and she appeared to be disturbed that the administration lawyers refused to answer her questions.

Titus said the judge’s conclusions underscore “the arrogance of the current regime, in that they will not answer questions that they ought to answer to a judge because they don’t think they have to.”

The brief was filed on behalf of Marshall and other individuals and organizations, including the United States Justice Foundation, Downsize DC Foundation, Institute on the Constitution, Gun Owners of America, Western Center for Journalism, the Tenth Amendment Center and Pastor Chuck Baldwin.

Marshall’s HB1160 passed the Virginia House of Delegates by a vote of 87-7 and the Virginia Senate 36-1. Since the vote was on changes recommended by Gov. Bob McDonnell, it was scheduled to take effect without further vote.

Marshall then wrote leaders in state legislatures around the country suggesting similar votes in their states.

Marshall’s letter noted Virginia was the first state in the nation to refuse cooperation “with federal authorities who, acting under the authority of section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), could arrest and detain American citizens suspected of aiding terrorists without probable cause, without the right to know the charges against them, and without the procedural rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.”

He told lawmakers, “While we would hope that the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives would be vigilant to protect the constitutional rights of American citizens, even when addressing the problem of international terrorism, those efforts in Congress failed at the end of last year, and President Obama signed NDAA into law on December 31, 2011.”

Endorsing Marshall’s plan was the Japanese American Citizens League, which cited the detention of tens of thousands of Japanese Americans during World War II on no authorization other than the president’s signature.

The Obama administration continues to argue the law allows for detention without legal due process only those who “substantially supported” terror groups such as al-Qaida or “associated forces.” But the plaintiffs note that the law does not define those terms.

Instead, they point to the law’s provision that such individuals may be detained “without trial until the end of the hostilities.”

Obama attorneys said the new law simply affirms what already was precedent under the Authorization for Use of Military Force, which was adopted in the dust of the 9/11 terror attacks.

But plaintiffs wrote, “Nowhere does the AUMF convey to the executive the power to detain any person – citizen or otherwise – who ‘substantially supported’ al-Qaida or the Taliban or their associate forces, as section 1021 of the NDAA now provides.”

“No case has ever recognized the government’s contention that the AUMF authorized the detention of noncombatants. … Neither case law nor the actual text of the AUMF supports the government’s contention that such detention power already existed.”
