    this was just plain murder. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty. It is a basic human right. Even terrorists. Not just who we think deserves rights. Murder by government, thats all it was. Watch out you may be next. Who will stand up for you?

    Oh well.

    They unlocked the “Murder You Without Due Process” door.

    I have a feeling, from reading a bit of history, that there will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth when the door swings the other way on them.

    Hmmm.  I’m a little concerned about why this question is being raised.  Why do you think HE hates America?

    This little stunt probably put him on a list somewhere.  A couple months from now his outlet will move him to covering the dog show beat.  Either that or there’ll be a report in the Bakersfield Gazette that the police responded to a 9-1-1 call from some sh*t-box roach motel in the desert about some guy (him?) tearing up a room, coming off a bad mescaline/tequilla bender and handcuffed to the radiator wearing nothing but a stained and torn leather-and-lace ensemble.

    This won’t end well.

    This kinda sums up the situation:

    Fifth Amendment
    No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, … nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

    Sixth Amendment
    In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed… and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

    Supposedly the “war on terror” is supposed to protect these basic rights for all Americans and to bring those rights to the oppressed…. obviously it’s not.

      I think I saw that before, from a thing I took my kids to see in Washington. Got a good laugh reading it too. 

      Wow, imagine if those amendments actually meant something today… 

      My house would have never been raided because of 2 ounces of pot!

      State is consolidating its power to protect the capital, property and dominance of the elite classes, as well as its own power and authority. Not really anything new. This kind of thing has happened in the past as well.

    Reminder:  The WH confiscated all information on Major Nidal Hasan after his MASSACRE at Ft. HOOD, TEXAS – refusing
     to allow Congress to conduct their own investigation – or to have access to all information that was required to be given to Congress withing SEVEN days of the incident.

    It was known facts that Hasan was attempting to make contact with al-Awlaki, who had counseled some of the 911 hijackers – because Hasan boasted about it – and was placed under FBI investigation over it.

    Because Holder who is the most corrupt US AG in US history, and Usurper Obama has proven he cannot be trusted,  the Obama Administration was obviously giving al-Awlaki time to leave the USA –  after the Ft. Hood Massacre – when the WH was interfering and obstructing any and all information about Major Nidal Hasan from Congress.

    It was planned that al-Awlaki was to be taken out at the same time as Osama bin Laden – but only the mission on OBL was successful at that time.  I do not think that Obama wanted to do any of it – until he saw that it was going to be done anyway – and submitted to it – as a re-election strategy for 2012.

    Very, very troublesome to say the least.  Anyone of us could be ‘eliminated’ without any due process of the law.

      Pretty soon inflammatory remarks on “questionable” websites will be a capital offense. Then they will come for all of us.
