Opposition to NDAA
The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, (NDAA), under its Title X – General Povisions, Subtitle D – Detainee Matters, section 1031 and 1032 and subsequent sections does not support the peoples rights in that they can be detained indefinitely without charges and without trial. This does not adhere to the principles of the Constitution of the United States per the following;
Article III section 2, “…under which judicial power extends to all cases, trial of crimes by jury and where said crimes have been committed.”
The 4th amendment, “No warrants shall issue but upon probable cause.”
The 5th amendment, “…or crime a person shall not answer unless presented with or indicted by a grand jury…nor shall any person be deprived of life, liberty or property.”
The 6th amendment, “…the right to a speedy and public trial…be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation, be confronted with witnesses against him, and to obtain witnesses in his favor and assistance of defense council”.
The 8th amendment, “…no cruel or unusual punishments inflicted….”
The 14th amendment, section 1, “…no state shall enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of U.S. citizens nor deprive any person of life, liberty, or property without due proces of law nor deny within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws….”
NDAA, section 1074 per the following; “…implementing procedures to integrate unmanned aircraft into the National Airspace System” is in opposition to the 14th amendment, “…the rights of the people to be secure in their persons…against unreasonable searches.”
The NDAA also negates Habeus Corpus, the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, and the Non Detention Act of 1971.
The NDAA is in oppostion to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and the Geneva Convention Rights all of which the United States is one of the signatories.
We the people claim the right to exercise the Power of the Constitution of the United States regarding all lawful and unlawful orders wherever they may be.
We the people know our rights. The American people have stood tall for liberty and justice for a long time and have sacrificed for these human ideals. We will not let them slip away or be eroded. “Our Constitution, We Will Keep It!”
