Obama Planning Mass Arrests?

Sherwood Ross | Veterans Today

 


Is the Obama regime preparing for mass arrests of Americans? Some indicators suggest this is a real possibility.

It has all the laws it needs to imprison anyone should it plan to make mass arrests (thanks, Congress, for the unconstitutional Patriot Act andNational Defense Authorization Act).

It has illegally compiled lists of some 8 million names, (thank you, FBI and NSA).

It has vast stockpiles of weapons and bullets, (salute the Pentagon!)

It has $385 million worth of new dormitories (i.e., prisons?) tucked away on military basescalled “National Emergency Centers” (thanks, Halliburton construction subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root).

And it has invested 120,000 on-duty officers from 73 law enforcement agencies with authority to arrest “suspects.”

If you think “it can’t happen here,” as described in the 1935 Sinclair Lewis novel of that name, think again. What’s to stop USG from doing Stateside what it has been doing around the world? After all, who has already begun killing American citizens with illegal drone strikes if not our totalitarian trendsetter President Barack Obama?

As Bill Blum, a Washington investigative journalist writes in his “Anti-Empire Report,” since the end of World War 2, the U.S. has interfered in the elections of at least 30 countries and dropped bombs on people in as many others and attempted to overthrow more than 50, mostly democratic, governments, such as Iran in 1953 and Chile in 1973. What’s stopping it from turning a democracy into a dictatorship?

President Obama has gone so far down the totalitarian road, American Civil LibertiesUnion (ACLU) Executive Director Anthony Romero proclaimed, “I am disgusted with this president…it’s (his) policies on civil liberties and national security issues I’m disgusted by.”

Romero added, Obama’s actions “raises serious questions about the administration’s commitment to the rule of law.” That’s a polite way of saying the president is a law-breaker. (In Chicago, the term to describe such people is ‘gangster.’) And extrajudicial killings are official Obama policy. As Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair claimed in Congressional testimony, the U.S. can, with executive approval, kill U.S. citizenssuspected of terrorism.

“It is alarming to hear that the Obama administration is asserting that the president canauthorize the assassination of Americans abroad, even if they are far from any battlefield and may have never taken up arms against the U.S., but have only been deemed to constitute and unspecified ‘threat,’” points out Ben Wizner, staff lawyer for the ACLU National Security Project.

The key phrase here is “unspecified ‘threat’”, another way of saying “suspected.” As George Mickum, a lawyer who has represented Guantanamo Bay prisoners, told Inter Press Service (IPS), “We have killed thousands of innocent civilians while attempting to target alleged operatives. And let us not forget how frequently our intelligence has been wrong about alleged operatives. As the civilians were not engaged in hostile actions, their murders by the Obama regime become ‘war crimes.’” (Dear George, “we” have not done anything!)

And constitutional scholar Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois, Champaign, told IPS, “This extrajudicial execution of human beings constitutes murder, war crimes, and because the drone strikes are widespread and systemic, crimes against humanity. Because Obama’s drone strikes almost exclusively target Muslims and People of Color, they verge upon genocide.”

Boyle said, further, “The U.S. government has now established a ‘death list’ for U.S. citizens abroad akin to those established by Latin American dictatorships during their so-called dirty wars.”

If you think the USG will not condemn more Americans to death without trials, ponder the words of attorney John Whitehead, head of the Rutherford Institute of Charlottesville, Va.: “Unfortunately, ‘we the people’ have become so trusting, so gullible, so easily distracted, so out-of-touch, so compliant and so indoctrinated on the idea that our government will always do the right thing by us that we have ignored the warning signs all around us, or at least failed to recognize them as potential red flags.” Whitehead is the author of “A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State.”

To our knowledge,the Obama regime has not answered questions Whitehead put to it, which (my paraphrasing) include:

Q: Why did the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) buy 1.6 billion rounds of hollow-point ammunition and 7,000 fully-automatic 5.56x45mm NATO ‘personal defense weapons’?

Q: Why do the Postal Service, Department of Education, Internal Revenue Service, Social Security Administration and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration buy up weapons and ammunition in bulk?

Q: Why does the Department of Agriculture need 320,000 rounds of hollow point bullets and .40 caliber submachine guns?

Q: Why is FEMA stockpiling massive quantities of emergency supplies?

Q: Why is DHS giving away millions of dollars’ worth of federal security grants to states that federal intelligence agencies ruled have “no specific foreign or domestic terrorism threat?”

Whitehead points to a New York Times article quoting a Pentagon source who says that under Obama police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night-vision equipment; and hundreds of silencers, armored cars and aircraft.

In addition to militarizing the police, Obama’s USG is building a Main Core database, Whitehead says, that “would be used by military officials to locate and round up Americans seen as threats to national security…to be carried out by the Army and FEMA.

Whitehead concludes, “Taken individually, these questions are alarming enough. However, when viewed collectively, they leave one wondering what exactly the U.S. government is preparing for and whether American citizens shouldn’t be preparing, as well, for that eventuality when our so-called ‘government of the people, by the people, for the people’ is no longer answerable to ‘we the people.’” #

    Yes sir, Obama has his plans, but the local law enforcement are making me stay awake at night. Reference the innocent grandfather that was killed in East Dublin, Ga. in September. I knew this man, was raised a few miles from where this murder took place.The msm is just now picking up this story. A no knock warrant was issued on the word of a known meth dealer who just two nights before had stolen Mr. Hook’s SUV and burglarized his house. The cops entered in very hostile mode and simply gunned down an innocent man, a successful businessman I might add, and the identity of these assailants will never be made public. Excuses will be offered and lies will be told by the Laurens’ County, Georgia Sheriff’s Department, but not one of those assassins will ever be brought to justice. I have always been a citizen with the utmost respect for the people who wear the uniform. That is now dead, never to be resurrected. thanks

    We have the numbers to take back our way of life, If only we had the collective courage and willingness to FIGHT these criminals. Time has past where we could right these wrongs through the system known as the constitution and Bill Of Rights and the Courts.
    Time is here for us to lock arms stand our ground and be willing to die fighting, rather than to die o our knees as a do those in North Korea, China and all fascists and communist states. We were once histories most successful republic. Is it worth saving?

    Article title should read “NWO planning mass arrests”? Using this kind of language that assumes that Obama acts independent of the powerful interests that he answers to keeps the right left paradigm alive. This is a false paradigm and must be avoided as the people are led to believe that removing Obama for a republican will solve problem.

    Lord Acton was right when he stated “the issue that has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people vs the banks.”

    Bring it on. Can’t wait. They want a fight-they’ll get one. Just waiting for them to get it started.

    For years now we have been bombarded with the factual, treasonous acts of president ebola, and I don’t disagree with the summation of what this waste of protoplasm is made up of. That being said, I’ve wondered why there is never any scathing accounts of the treasonous other two branches of government that have only stood up to the waste of protoplasm to shake it’s hand. There are 544 traitors (435 in the house, 100 in the senate, and 9 on the court) that took the same oath as the waste of protoplasm and have done nothing to stop him. As far as my own ‘elected representatives’ go, one would have to look far and hard to find sorrier representatives than the two lying so-called conservatives sen. John Cornyn ,and rep. John Carter. Both voted for the patriot act and the ndaa. Cornyn is the ex-attourney general of Texas, and Carter was a dist. judge. I say this because neither has any excuse for not knowing what is and is not an infraction against the Constitution. Carter is even on record as stating that he thinks it is a good idea for dhs to have all of that ammunition.
    Bottom line: don’t you people think it is about time to start placing the blame where it belongs and with people whose responsibility it is to represent us and our way of life? Ebola doesn’t care about this country or it’s legal citizens. How can you expect loyalty from a waste of protoplasm from another country? Unless it can be proven that he acquired his citizenship legally you can’t even say that he is a traitor, because how can you be a traitor to someone else’s country? It can’t be proven that he got his citizenship legally without proving that he isn’t legally holding office. There is an old Texas saying that goes,’you can’t give away something you don’t have’, so quit going to someone that doesn’t even want this country to exist and hammering the snake for a lack of loyalty.

    ya frog is right, putting “obama” to blame only turns away democrats and progressives who would otherwise agree about the destruction of our liberty.

    The writing has been on the wall, and remember it was right wing G.W. Bush that pushed the patriot act, as well as the NDAA, and the military commissions act. While Obama may be the puppet to act on these illegal policies, they are not law as the y are repugnant to the constitution and so they are illegal. It is the Americans Constitution and we are the ones who dictate and define its meaning, not those who are to be suppressed by it. The public better wake up, as it may not be Obama or the next global banker PR empty suit they put in the White House, but it could come, and if people do not reject it then they will get exactly what they deserve.

    They distributed weapons in this manner because they are untraceable and can be redirected to Obama’s Black radical “Citizen Army” and other leftist illegal groups easily after being “straw purchased by treasonous govt agencies… Hint: they never got them either.

  14. Grego October 8, 2014 at 3:24 pm

    At one time they said blacks were slaves and Hitler said Jews must be killed so this is no different they may not make a law that says we can take you away.
    Time to put a little oil on the bolt and set up a night watch.

  15. Mark Brander October 8, 2014 at 3:48 pm

    God has been warning America since 2008 that He ultimately raised Obama up over America to bring judgement on His people who are lost in sin and will not repent. God’s warnings to Americans to repent fell on deaf ears and no one would believe that Obama was the Antichrist coming into power by God’s hand.

    People will still not believe to this day that Obama is the Antichrist, and people will still not repent. 100’s of millions of Americans are about to die through God’s judgments, because they can not be told anything.

    America is going down my friends, and so is Canada, and it is all by God’s hand. We have no one to blame but ourselves. Read God’s many warnings about what is coming!

    Catch us if you you can (illegal alien psychopath) President Obola. We are armed with OTC cures and plenty of firearms. Your CDC-made bio-terror agent cannot kill our souls. We WILL fight to the end and GOD willing, we will still be standing in the end while you are trampled under the foot of JESUS CHRIST.

  17. skid October 8, 2014 at 11:54 pm

    Obama is not the Antichrist, he is just another presidential puppet, owned by the banksters.

    The events in places such as the Ukraine suggest that they are not planning for mass arrests; they are planning for mass murder. After overthrowing that countries elected government, entire regions of people were suddenly labeled as “terrorists”.

    Frog was right on. Actually, the original sin was back under Lincoln’s watch when the 7 Southern states walked out and there could never be another quorum to reseat a legitimate government.

    In 1871 the Organic Act usurped our original de jure Constitution for the united States, and replaced it with a corporate charter, Constitution of the United States. They took out the original 13th Amendment and 14th Amendments. The original 13th Amendment prohibitted titles of Nobility from holding office like all BAR card members. Trading with the Enemies Act and others labelled us enemies of the Federal Corporation, what they do to us is legal – not lawful – under their corporate system. They are quislings.

    They took over the courts and eliminated Common Law in 1938 in Erie Railroad vs. Thompkins. Their UCC law is contract law, in the Republicthere are no more courts of our Republic Constitution.

    They trick us with adhesion contracts to accept benefits and we then volunteer out of the Republicinto the democracy , they create legal fictions through idem sonams, and then “own us.” Google strawman

    We have been living under martial law since Lincoln, theCongress and lawyers and TPTB know we’re a bankrupt corporation. Read Jim Traficant’s testimony in the Congressional record.

    Study and reclaim your sovereignty, step back into the de jure Republic. Study their legalese words like citizen and resident, designed to trap you. Exercise remedy.

    Dicktaster Obola has and will continue to transform our police state into a prison camp population full of FEMA/CDC coffins full of DEATH. Like the pigeon says “coup, coup”.
