If you haven't been watching the political arena lately, you may not have noticed that the U.S. Congress last week handed President Bush a bill that, if signed, would spell the end of America as we know it.
Called the Military Commissions Act of 2006, the bill abandons the Geneva Convention (formed after Hitler's atrocities in WWII), legalizes the torture of U.S. citizens, suspends all civil rights for prisoners and allows the President to declare virtually anyone to be an "enemy combatant" -- artists, writers, scientists, protestors or anyone who does not agree with the pro-war stance of the current regime.
It would also retroactively grant blanket immunity to all U.S. military personnel who have committed war crimes under the Geneva Convention. Such immunity would extend to present and future war crimes as well. In other words, the United States will now officially harbor and support war criminals. In the context of international law, the United States is effectively declaring itself to be a criminal state that will respect no international law.
Just as frighteningly, the new Act would utterly nullify the courts and make it illegal for the judicial branch of government to interfere with the imprisonment and torture of anyone, thus affecting a dangerous power shift from the judicial branch of government to the executive branch.
Hitler followed the same strategy in centralizing his own power, and by nullifying the courts while taking over the media, he was able to propagandize his war, arrest all dissenters, and concentrate power in his own hands. The ultimate result was an unjust war and a humanitarian disaster that haunts the world to this day.
The United States is now firmly on the same path. These are dark times for our nation, and future historians will no doubt look upon this historic vote as the trigger that thrust the United States into a full-fledged police state, complete with secret arrests, government spying on citizens, and the mysterious "disappearance" of those who dared to speak out against the dictator.
A disgraced nation
What the U.S. Congress has done is beyond shameful. The rest of the world now sees the United States as a rogue nation, led by a power-grabbing madman who has, in six short years, taken us to the threshold of Police State tyranny, all while claiming to be protecting the Constitution.
Read the Military Commissions Act yourself! Here's a passage that nullifies the judicial branch:
"No court, justice, or judge shall have jurisdiction to hear or consider any claim or cause of action whatsoever, including any action pending on or filed after the date of the enactment of the Military Commissions Act of 2006, relating to the prosecution, trial, or judgment of a military commission under this chapter, including challenges to the lawfulness of procedures of military commissions under this chapter."
And here's another passage that rebukes the Geneva Convention:
"No person may invoke the Geneva Conventions or any protocols thereto in any habeas corpus or other civil action or proceeding to which the United States, or a current or former officer, employee, member of the Armed Forces, or other agent of the United States is a party as a source of rights in any court of the United States or its States or territories."
It makes you wonder. What kind of evil nation would reject, with such legal precision, the humanitarian protections of the Geneva Convention? What kind of U.S. Attorney General would allow a new law to nullify the federal courts? And what kind of traitorous Senator or Congressperson would vote for such a law in the first place?
Even twelve Democrats voted for the bill. The names of these traitors to our nation are:
Tom Carper of Delaware
Tim Johnson of South Dakota
Mary Landrieu of Louisiana
Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey
Menendez of New Jersey
Bill Nelson of Florida
Ben Nelson of Nebraska
Senator Pryor of Arkansas
Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia
Ken Salazar of Colorado
Debbie Stabenow of Michigan
Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut
And, of course, most Republicans voted for the bill as well. That's because their strategy for winning elections is to frame all reasonable men as "cut-and-run" sissies who don't have the backbone to bomb civilians, torture young children and imprison their own people under a system of legalized tyranny.
It is no exaggeration to say that every lawmaker who voted for this bill should be arrested and tried for treason. Failure to do so, in fact, is itself a crime against the United States of America.
By the way, this is NOT about Republican vs. Democrat. It's about the structure of power in this country and the dangers of consolidating political power. If these laws are left in place, any future President (even a Democrat) could use them to terrorize the nation and erect an impenetrable dictatorship. The real danger is not found in any one politician, but rather in the existence of a great political imbalance that invites dictatorship and nullifies the checks and balances that have kept our nation relatively free for so long. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
A repeat of Nazi Germany
Ever wonder how German citizens in the 1930's allowed the rise of a brutal dictator and the emergence of a military dictatorship? Actually, you're watching it happen right now in the United States. This is exactly how it happened in Nazi Germany.

He is the most heroic to stand up for America even in the face of such opposition from home while all the demo.s are flip flopping around. By the way, did you notice she didn't say anything about Iraq now did she? Paving the way for another flip flop?
Oh, the she is Nancy Pelosi.

that is utter ignorance. there was, at the time, a question of national securtiy due to Iraq's noncooperation to disclose certain information to the United Nations. if there were any weapons of mass destruction, then by the time President Bush took it upon himself, because of the United Nations' intent on keeping the status quo, to make a preamptive stike on a real risk, the Iraqi government could have transported their weapons to any neighboring country. and as long as there is any evidence of any terrorist threat (i.e. actual videotaped threats or terrorist activity) then there should be a neutralizing force to prevent terrorism from gaining momentum. it is in sheer ignorance and fear of scrutiny that people back the "anti-Bush" movement.
the same principle applies to Vietnam, but this time we have the means to a preventive overtaking. who knew what Osama Bin Laden was scheming until after his intent was realized, not to mention who else took hand in his actions. there is a real threat and, thanks to Mr. Bush, there is a real guard.Source(s): read a book...

actually no .. he is not working on murdering anyone. You have it all wrong.
You see, he is actually saving innocent lives .. Clinton chose to ignore the first 4 attacks on the US .. we paid DEARLY with the loss of innocent lives on 9-11.
Bush responded and will continue to respond to assure the safety of even you. Yes, there are casualties, but not near as many as there would be if we sat around on our hands with an intern between our legs like Clinton did.
Hope this helps kiddo.

It's time to put down the fantasy novel and turn off the democratic web sites and conspiracy sites and come bach to reality.
But then again..it's not going your way, so you want to live in your own fantasy world....I understand.
For Soul Searcher - I have read the Military Commissions act of 2006. The funny thing is, you only have it partly right. Two things. thats not verbatim, and second, you did not post THE WHOLE THING. Makes a big difference. But, you only want us to know what you think we should right?
