    Americans retain our rights according to Constitutional law; yet, if an American citizen aligns with a foreign entity, and works to cause destruction or death of Americans that American can be arrested for treason.

    Sections 1031 and 1032 of the national defense authorization act, address this concern. Americans do retain their Constitutional rights.

    I think it's a good tool for the military to have, if there's any question about entities working to favor a conspiracy against the American people.

    Sections 1031 and 1032 of the national defense authorization act:

    Source(s): "b) Applicability to United States Citizens and Lawful Resident Aliens- (1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS- The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States. (2) LAWFUL RESIDENT ALIENS- The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to a lawful resident alien of the United States on the basis of conduct taking place within the United States, except to the extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States."

    1. Martial law is rule of the civilian population by military apparatus, under a military or civilian government. Civil rights may be suspended, but that is not always the case.

    The word "Martial" is base on the name of the of Roman god of war, Mars.


    2. The legislation is toxic. Obama is wrong to take this power.

    Section 1031, part b, (2) "A person who was a part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners"

    Even criticism of a coalition partner makes you a potential victim of this act.


    Section 1031, part c, (1) "Detention under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force."

    You can be held indefinitely without trial.


    During the campaign Obama promised to release the Gitmo POWs, and hasn't, we can't rely on him keeping his word about his ideas of prisoner rights. The act gives him the power to arrest and imprison American citizens without charge. His views on civilian rights don't seem to include freedom. We may have a problem.

    No government should ever be this powerful.

    FEMA camps and NDAA are the real thing. (just like an Orwellian Utopia) You'll be gettin' the eff out of dodge to avoid some kind of urban uprising because of a disaster or emergency and about 30 or 40 miles out of town traffic will stop. military stormtroopers will walk through stopped traffic and warn people to stay in their cars. when you get to the roadblock ahead you will be told to get out of your car (leave all of your belongings and your keys in the car) and wait in a holding area. You will then board a bus and go to one of their internment facilities where you will be in-processed. Hopefully you will not get to play any of their games (waterboarding, solitary confinement, etc)

    As for the NDAA (just signed into law by Barack Hussein Obama) that will be used to authorize the whole thing, did you read the book or see the movie "1984"? that's what it is. It allows any federal agency to declare an emergency and use the military forces to impose martial law. What they are doing in the mid east (door to door searches without warrants or any due process whatsoever) is only a rehearsal of what they have in store for us here. This is an article I wrote for another section.

    Do the police need a warrant to search me or my property? Under aspects of the US Constitution, all persons are protected from unwarranted searches and any other form of arbitrary harassment. Unfortunately modern courts have misinterpreted the intentions of the founding fathers who authored the US Constitution and Bill of Rights to give the police the power at their discretion to use "probable cause." Police should not be allowed to lawfully act on suspicions or whims, and any action against any person should be deemed unconstitutional. This also includes any electronic surveillance such as wiretaps, directional mics, etc. Of course under aspects of the "Patriot Act" they will claim that it is to protect us from terrorists. They also claim that states need to implement a REAL ID program so that sheeple can be digitally mapped for easy identification to once again... protect us from terrorists. Meanwhile, the southern border is wide open to basically let in whoever wants to come for whatever reason.

    The fact is this; the enforcement of drug and firearm prohibition has allowed the government to turn this country into a pig powered police state and everyday it is becoming more and more like the USSR. You might like all of this "protection" but personally I prefer to protect myself. If you are the kind of person that wants to give up your liberty for security then please go somewhere else like China or N Korea

    Martial Law is when you lose your civil liberties. Free Speech, Right to Peacefully Assemble and so on. This is instituted during national emergencies for the protection of the nation.

    Bad Bad Bad Choice. Under the banner of protecting us from the terrorists, which is real, they are going to continue to erode at our freedoms. I heard some of this dictated from the bill. It is very broad and will give law enforcement another reason to invade our rights.

    1. Government disbans laws/ethics in order to keep full control of people.
