National Defense Authorization Act-S.1867 - #3462 - VIDEO: Rand Paul on Possible American Detainees - Fox (2) More Voices Against the Section 1031 of the National Defense Authorization Act - Virginia Right



National Defense Authorization Act - Rand Paul on Possible American Detainees - Fox - Kentucky senator on his opposition to defense spending bill.

More Voices Agains the Section 1031 of the National Defense Authorization Act - Virginia Right -.......... Here’s what Jim Gilmore reportedly said about Section 1031: “The provisions of this Bill undermine the basic safeguards that we enjoy as Americans. It is dangerous, and should not be supported by anyone: Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative, citizen or non-citizen. Any member of Congress voting for this bill should be defeated at the next election,” Gilmore said.  There’s more Gilmore:  Added Gilmore: “This ill-considered bill is one of those dangers to our liberties by an unwise extension of military power in the homeland contrary to all law, precedent and history.”  Michigan Cong. Justin Amash, one of the bright lights for liberty in the House said that this was “one of the most anti-liberty pieces of legislation in our lifetime.” Of course, Sen. Lindsay Graham was on the wrong side of this issue again:  Commenting on the controversial Section 1031 of the National Defense Authorization Act — which many contend gives the federal government new powers to arrest American citizens without charge — Graham made clear this week that “1031, the statement of authority to detain, does apply to American citizens and it designates the world as the battlefield, including the homeland.”  Sen. Graham has already come up with the Mark of the Beast and also offered President Obama a deal: Give KSM a military trial so he can close Gitmo! So it’s no surprise he’d be wrong here. I am sorry the Ron Paul Democrat did not defeat him in 2008. There’s always 2014! Wonder what Bob Conley’s doing these days? 1031 should only be used for tax exchanges, not exchanges of liberty for false security!
