Worse Than the NDAA: This Bill Is Before Congress

Written by Gary North on January 10, 2012

Its called the Enemy Expatriation Act. It is probably going to be signed into law.

But first, let’s review.

In America today, the politicians have convinced most of us that in order to keep us all “safe” we must give up many of our rights and move toward becoming a totalitarian police state.  In the “new America”, you don’t get any rights.  They tell us that giving people rights is too dangerous.  Instead, you get some limited “privileges” which can be revoked at any time by the authorities.  Sadly, most Americans have become so dumbed-down that they don’t even realize what is happening.

The NDAA had only 7 “no” votes in the Senate. Wise Americans can see where we are headed.

The federal government has become absolutely obsessed with monitoring everything that Americans say.  This chills free speech because it gives people the feeling that there is always somebody “watching”.

This is not going to change.

It has recently been revealed that the Department of Homeland Security plans to monitor social media outlets on the Internet.  If you use the wrong “keywords” or if you are a key “influencer” on the Internet, there is no doubt that someone from the federal government will be keeping tabs on you.

Here are details. The following comes from a recent RT article….

Under the National Operations Center (NOC)’s Media Monitoring Initiative that came out of DHS headquarters in November, Washington has the written permission to retain data on users of social media and online networking platforms.

Specifically, the DHS announced the NCO and its Office of Operations Coordination and Planning (OPS) can collect personal information from news anchors, journalists, reporters or anyone who may use “traditional and/or social media in real time to keep their audience situationally aware and informed.”

Twitter, Facebook, and blogs are targeted.

Though still in development, DHS is looking to establish a system for monitoring “forums, blogs, public websites and message boards.” The idea is to gather and analyze publicly available information, and then use that information to help officials respond to disasters and other situations.

It is known as the Enemy Expatriation Act, and you can read this bill  right here.

According to the bill, you can be stripped of your U.S. citizenship for “engaging in, or purposefully and materially supporting, hostilities against the United States.”

So what does it mean to “materially support” hostilities against the United States?

Does simply criticizing the government fall under that category?

Unfortunately, when you have a law that is really vague it gives authorities the leeway to do pretty much whatever they want.

This is the problem: open-ended power.

Then there is gun control. The following comes from a recent article in the Washington Times….

Despite overseeing an industry that includes machine guns and other deadly weapons, ATF regulations for the manufacture of weapons are often unclear, leading to reliance on a secretive system by which firearms manufacturers can submit proposed weapons for testing and find out one at a time whether they comply with the law, critics say.

The ATF recommends that manufacturers voluntarily submit weapons for case-by-case determination. But those judgments are private and, it turns out, sometimes contradictory. Critics say nearly identical prototypes can be approved for one manufacturer but denied for another.

Step by step, the nooses are tightening.

Do you have a close-knit group locally whose participants are ready to help each other in a crisis? Because, in a crisis, the nooses at all levels with tighten faster.

Do you have money outside of your bank?

  1. God help us all

  2. All these legislative bills that are taking away Basic rights to Liberty could be seen as preparation for citizen Reaction too a Declaration of National Bankruptcy don't you think ???

    How can we get this information to the masses? I realize that a great deal of people in the public are sure that the politicians are acting in our best interest.
    Most of the comments that i see posted are simply rantings, or kudos to the last post. We as Americans, MUST get this information to the idiots out there, or we have failed our duty as patriots. If they don't know then they can't make any decisions. At least, if they are informed, they can make decisions. Even if it is poor, or bad decisions. What WE really need for our survival is a LEADER, not just a different politician!!

  4. As you know or don’t know? American’s are living in the days that try our souls. Our Freedoms and the American way of life as we’ve known them are now on the precipice of demise! Our fundamental rights that were divinely written in to law to protect us and our Republic have become and continue to be systematically absolved under the guise of political correctness by the progressive elites. They have infiltrated schools, colleges, state/federal courts and/or manipulate many positions in our government including the current hope and change administration. Now, the administrative elitist hope that America’s won’t notice the fundamental change occurring, even though the transformation is obvious to us, the elites hope their change doesn’t wake millions from their normalcy bios.

  6. As far as I am concerned the de-development of our Manufacturing base all in the name of Trade Policy for paper Currency exchange profits that NOW has we the people not able to provide a Supply of vital human needs and unable too retool our Manufacturing abilities in a time frame quick enough to off set loss of vital supply from foreign importers who are about to formally say they don't want our paper dollars any more for these vital human needs is reason enough to say we are screwed .

    It makes me laugh at all these BIG Wealthy Hedge fund Operators who are siting on assets ( Real Durable Wealth is Vital Human needs but most only see this in paper currency value without realizing the Communists who have Used the system to separate the Control of the durable supply from the Paper that the supply is represented by , with Continents and Military's that are Not in the Hedge fund operators favor intrinsically speaking ) but yet they THINK they Control their HOLDINGS in countries outside the USA but are about to find themselves separated from these Tangible assets and left ONLY with the Paper currency value in their accounting Ledgers as the USA collapses from a lack of access to these durable supplies , we are in for a ride people get ready !!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0SmVYxrLTE

  9. Holy Cow, if this house bill is passed Congress and the House along with the President will have to arrest themselves for allowing terrorists acts to be inflicted upon the citizens of the United States from the lack of keeping the borders secured. They took an oath to protect us for enemy combatants both foreign and domestic and by not doing so are in a way supporting the terrorists. Hope they enjoy having their rights removed.

  10. Why are we allowing our own government to take away OUR VERY RIGHTS which we are supposedly fighting our enemies to protect? Who is our enemy? Who is having the greatest success enslaving U.S.?
    We are living in a computerized ROBOCOP police state RIGHT NOW! – TYRANNY!

  11. MontanaMEL says:

    This bill has a very direct reference to just what "hostilities" are construed to mean:::: any thing that rates being called WAR.
    This may have been an attempt to narrow down some of this "effect"….BUT, it sure looks like double talke to me…!

    Tell your House Rep to can this one…vote it down at once…or, specificially EXEMPT ANY SPEACH or WRITTEN WORDS!

  12. Quite possibly.

  13. The American people will be coming for all the corrupt, deviants who are trying to ruin America. They better be on notice. They have nowhere to hide. They will be dealth with

  14. Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate speaking out against this!

    Ron Paul 2012!
