It's things like this that get absolutely No air time from any media outlet, right or left. It's here that we win or lose as a nation. This is a struggle for the soul of our country and it is occurring in total silence.
Well, all that about the repubs might be true, but it was Obama that signed it again . Now, as the guy in the original video from the Zerohedge article said, Obama is a constitutional scholar, he should know better?
I am disgusted with the dems on this-now I was already disgusted with the repubs on this issue, but now am disgusted with both. Like they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. The President of the United States has the power to whisk you away and hold you indefnitely without trial and nary a peep from any of the major "news" sources. This is scary territory for the US.
Lead plaintiff Chris Hedges is one of my few remaining heroes. Well worth reading any of his books ("Death of the Liberal Class" would be enlightening for many on this forum), his monday column at http://www.truthdig.com and mining his talks on Youtube. They are thrilling in their honest description of the Corporate Coup d'Etat
you give too much credit to the office of President
The new Imperial Presidency?
Bush, cemented by Obama, have arrogated to themselves the right to wage war in any country, eavesdrop on and kill American citizens, and contravene international treaties and constitutional law.
As I mentioned above, watch Hedges, here with Moyers, for a start.
This is the Blue Pill, there are no good guys, one side is hideous the other slightly worse.
