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?
