Montanans Launch Recall of Senators Who Approved NDAA Military Detention. Merry Christmas, US Senate

Moving quickly on Christmas Day after the US Senate voted 86 – 14 to pass the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011 (NDAA) which allows for the indefinite military detention of American citizens without charge or trial, Montanans have announced the launch of recall campaigns against Senators Max Baucus and Jonathan Tester, who voted for the bill.

Montana is one of nine states with provisions that say that the right of recall extends to recalling members of its federal congressional delegation, pursuant to Montana Code 2-16-603, on the grounds of physical or mental lack of fitness, incompetence, violation of oath of office, official misconduct, or conviction of certain felony offenses.

Section 2 of Montana Code 2-16-603 reads:

“(2) A public officer holding an elective office may be recalled by the qualified electors entitled to vote for the elective officer’s successor.”

The website Ballotpedia.org cites eight other states which allow for the recall of elected federal officials: Arizona, Colorado, Louisiana, Michigan, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, and Wisconsin. New Jersey’s federal recall law was struck down when a NJ state judge ruled that “the federal Constitution does not allow states the power to recall U.S. senators,” despite the fact the Constitution explicitly allows, by not disallowing (“prohibited” in the Tenth Amendment,) the states the power to recall US senators and congressmen:

“The powers not…prohibited…are reserved to the States…or to the people.” – Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

YEAH!!!! I wrote to my representative (more like an IDIOT!) David Schweikert and he had the audacity to tell me that the NDAA bill DID NOT give the US government the power to lock up US citizens; that was an outright LIE. Here’s a little background if you don’t know what the NDAA is…

Congress sent the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to President Obama with provisions making possible the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens suspected of terrorist activities, without due process, in instances authorized by the president. Congress’s creation of this legislation and the president’s decision not to veto it represent severe breaches of their constitutional and moral responsibilities.

The NDAA has given the military the power to detain and imprison US citizens. Those that are put in to the prison work camps will NOT be given a trial nor will they be granted access to a lawyer. They can be held INDEFINITELY and forced in to slave labor for the US government.

So what does this mean for you and I? Well, the US government has a “terrorist watch list” which it adds ordinary citizens to each and every day. Here’s what they look for:

Expressions of libertarian philosophies (statements, bumper stickers)
Second Amendment-oriented views (NRA or gun club membership, holding a CCW permit)
Survivalist literature (fictional books such as “Patriots” and “One Second After” are mentioned by name)
Self-sufficiency (stockpiling food, ammo, hand tools, medical supplies)
Fear of economic collapse (buying gold and barter items)
Religious views concerning the book of Revelation (apocalypse, anti-Christ)
Expressed fears of Big Brother or big government
Homeschooling Declarations of Constitutional rights and civil liberties
Belief in a New World Order conspiracy
People who use cash instead of banks
Ron Paul supporters
People that oppose abortion
People that oppose illegal immigration
Christians
People that have outspoken opinions against the governenment

The government keeps this list secret and pretty much the only way to know if you are on it is to try boarding an airplane. If you are on the “no fly” list then you are almost certainly on the terrorist watch list. They plan on using that list to round up American’s and to ship them off to FEMA camps for slave labor.
