The Senate is set to vote on a bill next week that would define the whole of the United States as a “battlefield” and allow the U.S. Military to arrest American citizens in their own back yard without charge or trial.

“The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself,” writes Chris Anders of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office.

Under the ‘worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial’ provision of S.1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which is set to be up for a vote on the Senate floor Monday, the legislation will “basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who supports the bill.

The bill was drafted in secret by Senators Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), before being passed in a closed-door committee meeting without any kind of hearing. The language appears in sections 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA bill.

One Response to U.S. Senate Bill will allow Military to Intern Americans without a Trial

    Are they this scared that they fear the upcoming election will throw them out of office? All done in secret? Of course, the S.C.O.T.U.S. will endorse the bill/law as constitutional, (just so long as they don’t get swept up and put in a gulag somewhere! Paranoia strikes deep, into our life it will creep, the Revolution is here now folks, either get off your asses and stand up for what every past veteran gave his/her all for, or bend over and spread your cheeks. If this isn’t stopped now, then what that movie; “The Terminator” showed, will seem like child’s play here in the U.S.A. The Senate tried this once when Nixon was P.O.T.U.S., but stopped when the threat of the Southern Army was championed by the MSM of that era. The present group don’t seem to understand that the treatment the 2 million plus vets of the Bush wars, are combat experienced, have access to arms, have been jerked around by both the business community as well as Congress. These arm chair admirals/generals have become drunk on the kool-aid provided by the outside instigators, which by definition, makes them “traitors” to the U.S.A. They can arrest who they consider dangerous, but they can’t arrest the 99% of Americans who will resist. Again, they are drunk on the kool-aid if they think the people are going to sit around and let the few herd the mass like cattle to the slaughter.
