As the attention of most Americans was captivated by the shiny object in Times Square this weekend like infants fixated on car keys dangled in front of them, Barack Hussein Obama signed into law H.R. 1540, better known as the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Regardless of any concurrent executive signing statements that are mere window dressing and not legally binding, Obama and every member of congress who crafted and voted for this act has essentially declared war on American citizens on U.S. soil.
To quote Rush Limbaugh, “words mean things.” As a career investigator, I can assure you that words contained in local, state and federal laws most certainly mean things, and provide the legal authority for conduct sanctioned by national or state authorities without regard to any promised judicial or prosecutorial discretion that could be likened to the signing statement. The NDAA now codifies the most controversial aspects of the Patriot Act, which “candidate” Obama publicly opposed. What changed?
Any person of reasonable sensibilities should be raising a multitude of questions upon considering the current and historical conduct of the executive and legislative branches of our government. It was the attack on 9/11 that ostensibly paved the way for the Bush administration to craft the USA PATRIOT Act, which was signed into law by congress on October 26, 2001. That legislation broadened law enforcement powers well beyond the rights granted to Americans by the U.S. Constitution. While many of the provisions contained in the PATRIOT Act were scheduled to end on December 31, 2005, the U.S. Senate passed a reauthorization bill containing numerous changes in July 2005, and the House of Representatives submitted a bill that kept most of the original bill intact. The largely unchanged bill passed congressional vote on March 2, 2006 and was signed into law by George W. Bush.
Although the PATRIOT Act has gone through various subsequent incarnations, congress crafted and Obama signed a four-year extension last May, extending certain key provisions that particularly focused on businesses in the U.S. It is important to note that the manner and methods in which the U.S. government interprets and carries out the provisions of the PATRIOT Act are classified and kept secret from the American public, an issue rarely addressed by politicians or pundits. Why the secrecy?
One must also question the obvious continuity of agenda from the Bush administration to the Obama administration, and from the congress seated in 2001 through today. Despite pro-Constitutional campaign rhetoric from both Republicans and Democrats, and the rapid acquiescence of some TEA party candidates who now occupy seats of power, it is obvious that the rights of Americans granted by the very Constitution elected officials swore to uphold are under attack. Why the change?
As one looks at the larger picture, pieces of the puzzle seems to become more recognizable.
Once thought to be the fanciful designs of the conspiracy minded, there appears to be an acceleration toward one world governance, or the infamous “New World Order.” It is an agenda that has been in place for decades, yet the politically myopic and the agent facilitators deliberately avoid any discussion of its existence. Exposure of this agenda has been hobbled by the merger of major news organizations into a half-dozen corporations who control what is reported. Even many who present themselves as purveyors of the truth decline to discuss the globalist agenda, or are held hostage by big money contracts with editorial stipulations and controls.
While the attacks of 9/11 paved the way for passage of the PATRIOT Act, what could explain the draconian legislation contained in the NDAA of 2012? Looking through the prism of current events, those with intellectual honesty can readily see events unfolding that would create conditions to necessitate its implementation.
Who could have predicted the economic crisis of 2008, just two months before the U.S. presidential election? Nearly everyone who was aware of the agenda of the global elite. The economic crisis of 2008, an incident which the banking elite used the specter of martial law to fund their global operations, landed a financial sucker punch on every American with the approval of congress. Using such phrases as “too big to fail,” banking giants, facilitated by the Federal Reserve, the U.S. Treasury and members of congress knowingly and deliberately defrauded the American public out of trillions of dollars, much of which remains unaccounted for despite dubious internal financial audit reports.
While the corporate media remain lapdogs for the banking and global elite and report recovery on the horizon, the real story has yet to be told by our media and elected officials. There is a controlled demolition of not only our national economy, but the entire world economy. Look at the financial death throes of the European Union, which cannot survive, despite the best fiction from cable news economists hired to hide the truth from the masses. The consequential social upheaval will not be contained to Europe, nor will the economic apocalypse. Due to the Ponzi scheme created by the globalist bankers and government leaders from the Goldman-Sachs bloodline, Americans will find themselves in financial turmoil unseen in modern history.
Perhaps it is for those who cannot seem to take their eyes of the shiny objects, or those who camp out at big box stores for bargains on the latest and greatest electronic gadgets that the NDAA was crafted.

Don't look for a general officer or for most any other officer to stand up and be counted. They are so indoctrinated with political correctness that they no longer care or understand what the constitution says. And, sadly in many cases they are no longer true military men. For example, back when the Libyan revolution began I watched some Marine general testifying before congress and he made the statement that imposing a no fly zone over Libya would be dangerous. At that point I exploded and started screaming at the TV set. Doesn't this dumb ass understand that the military's mission is to undertake dangerous missions. He's a general and he hasn't yet learned that any military organization only exists to do two things: destroy things and kill people.
Robert, Col. Riley is a wonderful and intelligent man and i respect him a lot! But he can't be of all hats and all things! But he does have a lot of good ideas! We need to place people in place to look for voter fraud. A actual movement to impeach our usurper led by several people who are doing this. Arrest Eric Holder and most of the elected people from the local dog catcher on up for treason. Which is punishable by death! We already have all it takes to arrest them and hang them. All we need to do is band together and do it! I don't know how to do it or even get started. But i'm sure that Col. Riley has the support of friends that would know how to do it! So, let's get started! Does anyone have a web sight that we can use to do this? Does anyone have a back bone? Does anyone have the desire to take back our country? Does anyone want to have a country to give to our further generations? Does anyone in Patriots for America who are posting. Have what it takes to bring us together? Step forward and present a solution! May God Bless this Nation Again! Larry
Thanks Denise for your reply. Now i need to know of that venue. Could you direct me to my next step, here in Oregon? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org i could also send you my phone no. if you so request. Thanks! Larry

TO PATROL THE STREETS, WE HAVE A ''REAL ARMY TO DO THAT, I DON'T THINK ANYONE IN AMERICA LIKES THE SOUND OF THAT, GOD HELP US.
JUST ANOTHER AMERICAN CITIZEN LOOKING FOR HER COUNTRY AND AFTER 3 YRS ITS ALMOST GONE........
This is OUR Country and We out number them by millions and we sit back and do nothing but Blog. Do they think that the Veterans and other Patriotic Americans are going to sit back quietly without taking them on directly when the time comes. Who do these idiots in Washington think they are. Is our Military and Law Enforcement going to cow down to these minnions and obey their orders to destroy the Future of America. There aren't enough armies in this World to defeat the Will of the American People as we have proven time and time again. The time has come to stand up and March for the Future of our Country so that the Children and Grandchildren have a future of Rights and Freedoms. They are Traitors and need to be dealt with Now and not later. Time to Wake Up Americans !
What is it going to take to have people wake up?
The front door being kicked in.
A friend told me "Every day, get your guns and walk out your front door. If you are the only one, put your guns up for that day. The day your neighbors have their guns, band together and head for DC."
(I can trust me neighbors, on both sides, to come to my aid. As they can trust me.)
PEOPLE WILL WAKE UP WHEN THEY KNOCK ON YOUR DOOR AND TAKE YOUR CHILDREN FROM YOU AND TRAIN THEM UNDER OBAMA'S ARMY, THEN THEY WILL WAKE UP AND IT WILL BE TO LATE. SOME HOW WE MUST GET READY AND TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK, HOW ..I REALLY DON'T KNOW, BUT I WILL HELP, I'M 66 YRS OLD, BUT I AM STRONG FOR MY AGE, I WILL PROTECT OUR COUNTRY SOME HOW.
GOD BLESS ALL.
