This is torture!How the fuck did things get turned so upside down?
Next time, bomb vests and fertilizer bombs, all 50 state capitols and Pelosi's whore house.Only McVeigh understands what has to be done.
richwicks saysPatriot Act.This was actually before the Patriot Act. Look at the mandatory minimums set for drug offenses in the 80's. The War on Us, was when plea-deals, and violations of the 4th and 5th amendments really took off.
How much power do you think they have? They have infinite extortion power. All they need to do is find something in your past to blackmail you, and if they can't find anything on you, they can find something on your boss, or wife, or kid..
I know it's been going on for a long time,
richwicks saysI know it's been going on for a long time, I just a minute ago ran into this:"On Dec. 4, 1981, 20 years before 9/11, President Ronald Reagan signed Executive Order 12333. This directed the military — the NSA is in the military — to begin spying on Americans whose communications presented a danger to national security, and to do so without search warrants. The NSA relies on this unconstitutional executive order for authority to engage in mass warrantless surveillance or targeted, individual warrantless surveillance."Reagan also made some of the first unconstitutional abridgments of the Posse Comitatus Act in order to fly AWACs planes in the War (on some) Drug. The destruction of our freedoms has been a long bi-partisan effort
Hey, any of you lifelong Republicans see a problem with the Patriot Act, and using torture to gain confessions NOW?It was all fine and dandy when George W. Bush pushed this bullshit through. Anything that the US green lights to do to people in other countries, eventually comes home to roost.
previous executive orders don’t matter. Only current presidents orders matter, they aren’t law.
True dat. Not all Republicans were for it though, there was some resistance
