The NDAA was voted into law by 93 Senators. You know the story.
Obama signed it, but he declared that he would never actually enforce section 1031 (the “Halloween” section). Oh, no. Not him!
This is nonsense. He not only will enforce it; it’s there because he wanted it. It’s time to review Rachel Maddow’s 2009 report on this.
Obama gave a speech in front of the Constitution in the National Archives building. There, he made it clear what is in store for us. The government, he promised, would create new rules for people suspected of criminal terrorist activity. They will be arrested and put in jail. There will be no trial. There will be a system of federal bureaucrats who will oversee this.
This speech went down the memory hole. Republicans overwhelmingly supported this policy.

You need a back-up plan. A few tenth-ounce gold coins wouldn’t hurt.
