The following fact should frighten and anger all Americans. The fact is our own government has decided to use the full force of the military to detain, arrest and imprison American citizens who are suspected of terrorism. I personally am enraged.
The Senate on Dec. 1 voted for a law giving power to the U.S. military to indefinitely detain an American citizen with no charge, no trial and no oversight whatsoever with the passage of S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act.

In 1789 Thomas Jefferson wrote:
“There are instruments so dangerous to the rights of the nation and which place them so totally at the mercy of their governors that those governors, whether legislative or executive, should be restrained from keeping such instruments on foot but in well-defined cases. Such an instrument is a standing army.”
Tanks rolling down your neighborhood streets, black uniformed troops marching behind them, soldiers knocking on doors and searching homes without warrants or even reasonable suspicion.
And imagine yourself being cuffed and forcibly removed from your house as your neighbors watch in shock. You are then transported to an internment camp surrounded by razor-wire fences, never to be heard from or seen again.
It may sound like some crazy Hollywood movie plot, but a chilling scenario just like this may be closer to reality than you (or anybody else) may think.
Crazy you say? In spite of more and more strengthening of the federal beast at the expense of the states and the people, some still believe it can’t happen here.
Why then has the U.S. begun building a standing army within U.S. borders and expects it to be 20,000 strong by the year 2011.
Toward this end, the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team was deployed inside the United States on a homeland-defense mission after it returned from active-duty combat in Iraq.
These combat-hardened troops are armed and ready, and now stationed within U.S. borders, ready to be deployed at a moment’s notice by trigger-happy rulers.
When will the federal government finally turn against us? All it would take is another 9/11 event to declare a “national emergency” and the standing army will be ordered to sweep through major cities to round up “enemy combatants.”
Of course, there would be no trials by jury, much less formal charges. If you are labeled an “enemy combatant,” you can be detained against your will, denied all communication with the outside, and even…Tortured For Crimes You Never Committed!

In passing S1867, the progressive/socialist/communist infiltrators in our government have managed to turn 61 U.S. Senators into accomplices to their scheme of militarizing our police and turning them against the citizens, shredding habeus corpus and attempting to completely dismantle Posse Comitatus. Forget warrants sworn before a judge, forget due process – in fact – forget everything. If you ever fall into the clutches of this “new” federal police, all hope will be lost.
Congress has effectively turned our military and police into a gigantic secret police force. Combined with strip searches by the TSA, federal agencies such as ATF, DEA, the PATRIOT ACT and the Injustice Department, we now have a terrorist internal police force similar to the KGB of Soviet Russia and the East German STASI.
SOVIET SECRET POLICE
From the beginning of their regime, the Bolsheviks relied on a strong secret, or political, police to buttress their rule. The first secret police, called the Cheka, was established in December 1917 as a temporary institution to be abolished once Vladimir Lenin and the Bolsheviks had consolidated their power.
Once the Civil War (1918-21) ended and the threat of domestic and foreign opposition had receded, the Cheka was disbanded. Its functions were transferred in 1922 to the State Political Directorate, or GPU, which was initially less powerful than its predecessor. Repression against the population lessened. But under party leader Joseph Stalin, the secret police again acquired vast punitive powers and in 1934 was renamed the People’s Comissariat for Internal Affairs, or NKVD. No longer subject to party control or restricted by law, the NKVD became a direct instrument of Stalin for use against the party and the country during the Great Terror of the 1930s.
The secret police remained the most powerful and feared Soviet institution throughout the Stalinist period. Although the post-Stalin secret police, the KGB, no longer inflicted such large-scale purges, terror, and forced depopulation (slaughter/genocide) on the peoples of the Soviet Union, it continued to be used by the Kremlin leadership to suppress political and religious dissent.
The East German Communist regime modeled its secret police after the KGB and called it Stasi.
