Drones Over U.S. - Update On NDAA: by Chuck Baldwin, 24May12

     IMHO, as a retired federal agent, I am supportive re drones being used for legal surveillance & humanitarian purposes.  An obvious use would be patrolling our US/Mexican border spotting alien trafficking and possible side-viewing into MX staging areas, especially to help spot/remove foreign agents/aliens/terrorists ensconsed on hills on the U.S. side endangering Border Patrol and U.S. citizens who must be free to enjoy our national parks/recreational areas and for U.S. side property owners to feel secure, protected by our Executive Branch who is Constitutionally mandated to protect us from among others, foreign enemies be they terrorists, drug traffickers, or aliens illegally crossing into our country.  Other uses could be helping on wide-area searches for missing persons, downed aircraft, earthquake/flood disaster assessments, etc., especially by drones using enhanced day/night vision capabilities and terrain analysis, plus real-time patrols over wildfire areas and for search and rescue missions e.g. looking for missing/locating aircraft, boats, land vehicles, people on/in, difficult terrain, heavily forested areas, waterways, etc.  A particular use might also be for U.S. Customs/DHS extended border searches surveilling inbound movements of contraband from U.S. borders to inland destinations.
     I am against their being used for "throw a net over'em" 'intelligence gathering' against citizens who are not criminals and activities of citizen groups exercising their 1st Amendment rights, rights to privacy, 4th Amendment rights, and rights as protected by States from federal encroachment under the 10th Amendment.
     Preventative intel gathering itself can become nefarious, quickly, and questions remain unasked/unanswered as to what is done with the information as it is captured and once its immediate capture purpose has passed.  Examples abound, e.g. automatic license readers at inland checkpoints, parking area entrances/exits, on highways and byways across the country.
     I am somewhat ambivalent about 'presumed legal' uses against citizens in situations where case law is not already clearly established as to law enforcements' responsibility, much less its right to surveil.  Such instances might include the bane: e.g. riots, race based wilding/rampages, on-going criminal street gang/criminal activity, ongoing hostage situations, offender targeting, etc.  However; in the urbane, monitoring activities should be prohibited from being used against legitimate organizations i.e. citizen militias, peaceful demonstations, public fairs, gun clubs' ranges, boy scout jamborees, mom'n pop picnics, kids playing marbles on a sand lot, the idle walker through an unfamiliar neighborhood, a backyard sun-bather, ...seriously, potential for abuse does exist from ranging between the bane to urbane.-- rfh

Update On NDAA And Drones Flying Over The USBy Chuck Baldwin, May 24, 2012
Archived column:
http://chuckbaldwinlive.com/home/archives/4858
    In a stunning upset for the Obama administration and big-government zealots in general, a federal judge in New York has issued an injunction against the citizen detention portion of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).  Bob Unruh at World Net Daily has the story.
     "A district-court judge has suspended enforcement of a law that could strip U.S. citizens of their civil rights and allow indefinite detention of individuals President Obama believes to be in support of terror.'
      The Obama administration has refused to ensure that the First Amendment rights of authors and writers who express contrary positions or report on terror group activities are protected under his new National Defense Authorization Act.       Targeted in the stunning ruling from U.S. District Judge Katherine B. Forrest of New York was Paragraph 1021 of the NDAA, which Obama signed into law last Dec. 31.  The vague provision appears to allow for the suspension of civil rights for, and indefinite detention of, those individuals targeted by the president as being in support of terror. 
      Virginia already has passed a law that states it will not cooperate with such detentions, and several local jurisdictions have done the same.  Arizona, Rhode Island, Maryland, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Washington also have reviewed such plans.
     The case was before Forrest on a request for a temporary restraining order.  The case was brought on behalf of Christopher Hedges, Daniel Ellsberg, Jennifer Bolen, Noam Chomsky, Alex O'Brien, Kai Warg All, Brigitta Jonsottir and the group U.S. Day of Rage.  Many of the plaintiffs are authors or reporters who stated that the threat of indefinite detention by the U.S. military already had altered their activities."
      Constitutional expert Herb Titus filed a friend-of-the-court brief on behalf of the sponsor of the Virginia law, Delegate Bob Marshall, and others.
     Titus, an attorney with William J. Olson, P.C., told WND that the judge's decision to grant a preliminary injunction halting enforcement of paragraph 1021 -affirms the constitutional position taken by Delegate Marshall is correct.
     "The impact is that the statute does not have sufficient constitutional guidelines to govern the discretion of the president in making a decision whether to hold someone in indefinite military detention," Titus said.
      The judge noted that the law doesn?t have a requirement that there be any knowledge that an act is prohibited before a detention, he said.  The judge also said the law is vague, and she appeared to be disturbed that the administration lawyers refused to answer her questions.
      "The opinion underscores 'the arrogance of the current regime', in that they will not answer questions that they ought to answer to a judge because they don't think they have to," Titus said.
     Unruh went on to say, "The brief was on behalf of Marshall and other individuals and organizations including the United States Justice Foundation, Downsize DC Foundation, Institute on the Constitution, Gun Owners of America, Western Center for Journalism, the Tenth Amendment Center and Pastor Chuck Baldwin ."
     As an aside, was I the only pastor in America to be included as an amici in this brief.  Let me challenge readers, the next time you go to church, ask your pastor what he is doing or what he would do to prevent military personnel from taking you off to a military prison without an arrest warrant, without issuing Miranda, without telling you why you are being seized, without allowing you access to an attorney, without recognizing that you have any constitutional rights, without any requirement to release you, or even without any requirement to keep you in the United States of America for a trial or judicial proceeding.  I challenge you: ask him!  And if his answer is something like, "The Lord will take care of you," or "That could never happen in the United States," what in the name of liberty are you doing attending that church?  See Unruh's report at:
http://www.wnd.com/2012/05/obama-citizen-detention-plan-in-trouble/
     Now, I wonder how many of these pseudo-conservative talking heads at FOX News, as well as the myriads of local reporters and journalists throughout the country, will at least be honest enough to admit that there was substantial reason to be concerned about the citizen detention provision of the NDAA?  Ever since NDAA was signed into law, these phony guardians of liberty have been pooh-poohing the warnings that many of us columnists and independent journalists have been issuing.  Now, a federal judge has also recognized the threat posed to our constitutional liberties by this provision of the NDAA, and has issued an injunction against it.
     That's the good news. The bad news is the US House of Representatives defeated an amendment that would have repealed the indefinite detention provision of the NDAA.  The Tenth Amendment Center covers the story.
     In a shameful display of disregard for the Constitution and for liberty, on Friday, the House of Representatives voted to perpetuate the president?s power to indefinitely detain American citizens.
     By a vote of 238-182, members of Congress rejected the amendment offered by Representatives Adam Smith (D-Washington) and Justin Amash (R-Michigan) that would have repealed the indefinite detention provision passed overwhelmingly last year as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2012.
    The Fiscal Year 2013 NDAA retains the indefinite detention provisions, as well as the section permitting prisoners to be transferred from civilian jurisdiction to the custody of the military.
     "The frightening thing here is that the government is claiming the power under the Afghanistan authorization for use of military force as a justification for entering American homes to grab people, indefinitely detain them and not give them a charge or trial," Representative Amash said during House debate.
     The report goes on to say, "Each of these freedom-phobes [the congressmen who voted to keep the indefinite detention provision of the NDAA] invoked the specter of terror (in one way or another: 'terrorist,' 'al-Qaeda,' 'enemies') to justify the abolition of constitutionally guaranteed civil liberties.
      Seemingly, those promoting these provisions would offer Americans as sacrifices on the altar of safety, the fires of which are fed by the kindling of the Constitution.
     Hear! Hear!   
    The report astutely includes this warning from 'The Father of The US Constitution,' James Madison: "It is a universal truth that the loss of liberty at home is to be charged to the provisions against danger, real or pretended, from abroad."
     Oh!  Take a guess as to who was the only candidate for President who supported the Smith-Amash amendment to repeal the indefinite detention provision of the NDAA?  You got it: Congressman Ron Paul.
     See the Tenth Amendment Center report at:
http://tinyurl.com/7eklrp4
     This goes to prove that sometimes our enemies are not the courts;  sometimes our enemies are the legislatures of this country.  This was the case in the aforementioned actions.  So, now we have a federal court and the US Congress (allied by the White House) in conflict.  It's going to get very interesting!
     And speaking of how the legislatures are often the ones inflicting more and more tyranny upon the US citizenry, try this report on for size:     The federal government is moving quickly to open the skies over America to drones -- both for commercial and government purposes -- and respected Washington Post and Fox News commentator Charles Krauthammer is forecasting 'rifles aimed at the sky all across America.'
     The comments from Krauthammer, who won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in1987 after serving as a speechwriter for Vice President Walter Mondale and then beginning his journalism career at The New Republic, were on 'Special Report' with Bret Baier.
    "I would predict, I am not encouraging, but I predict the first guy who uses a Second Amendment weapon to bring a drone down that's been hovering over his house is going to be a folk hero in this country," Krauthammer said.
     The conversation arose as the federal government announced it is beginning to allow public safety agencies to fly unmanned aircraft --drones -- with fewer and fewer restrictions.
     According to yesterday's report from Bloomberg, police, fire and other government agencies now are being allowed to fly drones weighing as much as 25 pounds without special approvals previously needed.
     The Federal Aviation Administration said on its website that the move was an interim step until the agency finishes rules that will open the door for commercial operation of drones, as well as those uses for government purposes.
     Congress has adopted the position of encouraging more drone flights, with the 'goal of adapting technology used by the military in Iraq and Afghanistan.'  See the report at:
http://www.wnd.com/2012/05/feds-clearing-way-for-drones-over-your-house/
      There you have it, folks.  Your federal government -- along with numerous local and State police agencies -- is preparing to use instruments of war against the citizens of the United States.  And numerous local and State police agencies are standing in line to participate.  I ask you, do the US Congress, the FAA, and our local and State authorities plan to arm these drones with more than surveillance cameras (as if that's not bad enough?)  Should we expect that the drones that will be flying over our neighborhoods would be armed with machine guns and missiles?  That's the 'technology used by the military in Iraq and Afghanistan,' after all.
     What is wrong with the American people?  What is wrong with our representatives?   What is wrong with our State legislators?  What is wrong with our local and State police agencies?  What is wrong with our pastors and churches?  What is wrong with our reporters and journalists?  Are they THAT blind?  Do they want a paycheck THAT badly?  Are they THAT willing to allow this free republic to be thrown into the trash bin of history, only to be replaced with a giant Police State?  Are we THAT ignorant of history?  Is THAT really where we are?
     Ladies and gentlemen, the emerging police state is the foremost issue confronting the people of the United States today!  And on this issue, the labels Democrat and Republican mean absolutely nothing!  Nothing!  If the voters of this country do not awaken quickly to what is going on in front of their very eyes, it won't matter to a tinker's dam which party or which candidate is put into office.  If we do not have the right to live in privacy and peace, all of the other rights we talk about mean absolutely nothing!

"Over the last four years our national debt has risen nearly $6 trillion, and just last week the debt topped an astounding $16 trillion.  To put that in perspective, $16 trillion is enough money to fund the US military, along with the military of every NATO country combined… for the next sixteen years!  Government spending is projected to hit $3.8 trillion this year alone.  Even after every tax dollar paid by Americans has been counted, the government will still overspend by another $1.13 trillion.  Every single second of the day our government spends over $12,000.  So in the time it takes you to read this article, roughly five minutes, our government has spent $3.6 million.  It take four seconds for the government to spend what the average American earns in an entire year."  (source: by Tim Phillips 17Sep12 at TownHall.com)

"As a nation we have been asleep for years.  Lulled by affluence and self-indulgent apathy, our collective awareness has grown dim.  This has created an opening for our enemies, one that may ultimately prove fatal.  This is the truth and what we do, or don't do, will determine the consequences, for better or worse.  It is time to decide." -- truthandcons.blogspot.com
