Obama Executive Order Targets Fourth Amendment

Remember when Barry Obama said he would close Gitmo because it wasn’t right to hold people without formal charges and trials? He made the pledge soon after assuming the ceremonial throne. He said he would get it done within 12 months.

Barry didn’t really mean it.

Now comes word that Obama will sign an executive order that will formalize indefinite detention without trial of detainees kidnapped on the battlefields of undeclared and illegal wars.

The supposed plan to close Guantanamo is on hold, according to the Washington Post. It could be crippled if Congress bans the transfer of detainees to the United States for trial and sets up steep hurdles to the repatriation or resettlement in third countries of other detainees.

Obama’s cronies are working feverishly on the executive order. “If Congress blocks the administration’s ability to put detainees on trial or transfer them out of Guantanamo… the executive order could still be implemented,” the Post explains.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    It is obvious Americans will next, be detained indefinitely by U.S. Government, without charges; held in prison without right to an attorney or trial.

    Could Obama Be America’s First Defacto President?

    Innocent Americans increasingly are sent to prison based on false testimony, evidence manufactured by police and corrupt forensic crime labs. President Obama wants the power to incarcerate U.S. Citizens not on evidence, but for what they might do. Obama gave a speech in May 2010 at a Security Conference, that proposed incarcerating in indefinite prolonged detention without evidence, any person government deemed a “combatant” or likely to engage in a violent act in the future; that would include U.S. Citizens “without evidence of wrongdoing.” With that amount power Obama like Hitler could arrest members of Congress, drag U.S. Citizens off the street and from their homes to be imprisoned (indefinitely) based only on Government’s claim they are a “combatant” or likely to engage in a violent act in the future.

    If Congress approves Obama’s categories of people likely to engage in violent acts, overnight millions of lawful U.S. activists and out spoken Americans could be subject to arrest, Indefinite Prolonged Detention. When you examine Obama’s speech, it appears Obama wants retroactive power to incarcerate anyone government claims (prior) supported violent acts on the premise that person is likely to support violent acts in the future: U.S. activists would be extremely vulnerable to detention, because no activist can control what another activist or group might do illegally they network with domestically or overseas. Government would only have to allege a person, organization or blogger might support or commit a violent act in the future to order Preventative Detention of lawful Citizens with no evidence whatsoever. Americans would be afraid to speak out.
