The U.S. Supreme Court, based on the urging of the Obama administration, has ruled that any prisoner – even those arrested for offenses such as dog leash laws, peaceful protests, or driving with an expired license – can be subject to a routine strip search upon entering prison.

The government is openly saying that it will use all of our smart devices, internet connections, and tv to spy on Americans.

President Obama has issued an executive order entitled “National Defense Resources Preparedness”, which instructs the heads of various U.S. agencies to be on standby for authorization of martial law under by the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. The order in fact gives Executive Branch immediate to power to seize and control of any and all assets declared as critical to maintain its industrial and technological base and to control the general distribution of any material (including applicable services) in the civilian market. The order further authorizes the immediate issuance of regulations to allocate, ration, or seize and all materials, including every thing from food, live stock and farm equipment to transportation, energy and even water. (However, some commentators say that this new executive order is only a minor tweak of previous executive orders dating back to 1994.)

Yawning or having goose bumps have been added to the list of things acts which might get you labeled as a potential terrorist.

Senators Ron Wyden and Mark Udall recently made a statement that Americans would be “stunned” if they knew how the American Government is interpreting, applying and using the Patriot Act:

The National Security Agency is building a $2 billion dollar facility in Utah which will use the world’s most powerful supercomputer to monitor virtually all phone calls, emails, internet usage, purchases and rentals, break all encryption, and then store everyone’s data permanently.

A former head of the program held his thumb and forefinger close together, and said:

We are, like, that far from a turnkey totalitarian state.

Indeed.

    I always believed that Obama is 3rd term of GWBush. Obama is American Trojan Horse.

    We have two headed one party system. George Orwell is crying in his grave now.

    Why don’t these two senators tell us? What would Obama do? Send them to Gitmo? Arrest them and accuse them of High Treason?

    I mean, if there is such a clear and present danger, isn’t it time for those in the know to speak out?

    That’s why guys like Ron Paul and Gary Johnson need to win.

    The US under Obama or Romney would only get worse. Americans have to wake up and choose the choice for freedom and liberty.

    The US Defense production act has been on the books since 1950 and we haven’t been enslaved. This is an update to that.

    The Utah facility does not listen to American emails, calls etc.

    But yes, the Supreme Court your Presidential candidates, the Bushes, tossed up there will allow the cops to check under your tin foil hat when they haul you in for burning your Social Security card.

    Editors, Can we keep the political discourse rational here please?

    A growning number of states, counties, and cities across the country are in the process of nullifying NDAA on the basis of its violation of the Tenth Amendment. Once a critical mass is reached it will essentially be nullified as in the case of other nullification actions. I have not looked into the history of nullification but my sense is that the rate of nullification actions has been increasing over recent times.
