McCain and Lieberman: The Enemy Belligerent Act or: The Attack of the Grumpy Old Men

What is a “Belligerent”?  According to the online free dictionary it is one who is:

1. Inclined or eager to fight; hostile or aggressive.

2. Of, pertaining to, or engaged in warfare.

n.One that is hostile or aggressive, especially one that is engaged in war.

Black’s Law 8th Edition,Pg. 164, says only that it is a country involved in a war or other international armed conflict.

Obviously, this bill authored by McCain and Lieberman is a declaration of war against the people of the (50) sovereign yet united, states.

It would appear that the corporate United States is in fact an Enemy Belligerent, having waged multiple undeclared wars of aggression against non-threatening countries and now openly has declared war against the American public under this bill.

Senators McCain and Lieberman seem to have turned their attention to constructing the means by which legal US citizens can be detained, interrogated and tortured.  It would also allow the indefinite detention of any individual anywhere in the world for any reason or no reason.  This must be the facilitating act to support Obama’s “Prolonged Detention Programs” where US citizens can be indefinitely detained for crimes they never committed……but the government via some lunatic in some office hidden deep in the White house decides needs re-education because they voiced their dissent about egregious government policies.

Read S. 3081 here:   The Enemy Belligerents Act You can do this.  Its only about 12 pages and is written in such a way as to make sure everyone can understand they are a potential “unprivilged enemy belligerent”….so sit down and shut up!

Here’s a little of what is in store for all you foolish dissenters if you don’t fall in line with federal mandates:

Under title (3) Designations (b)interrogations:

1)     INTERROGATIONS TO BE CONDUCTED BY HIGH-VALUE DETAINEE INTERROGATION GROUP- A high-value detainee interrogation group established under this section shall conduct the interrogations of each high-value detainee.

What evidence?  We don’t need no stinkin’ evidence!

So who might those “high-value-detainees” be?  Why anyone the president and the CIA or military decide is of interest.  The bill goes on to say that anyone kidnapped and detained under the provisions of this bill will be considered high value.  No charges necessary, no evidence need be compiled.  No lawyer need be provided and no one has to be informed about your whereabouts.

It doesn’t take an idiot to realize this section is devoted to creating a ring of torture experts whose sole job would be to elicit confessions to crimes most likely never committed by individuals most likely kidnapped from their homes.  The School of the America’s.. that premiere facility where the military and CIA teach psychopaths how to conduct torture more efficiently, must be giddy with the prospect of this bill passing.

Kiss your constitutional rights goodbye
