REX 84: FEMA'S BLUEPRINT FOR MARTIAL LAW IN AMERICA The article that Jon was referring to: We are dangerously close to a situation where ~ if the American people took to the streets in righteous indignation or if there were another 9/11 ~ a mechanism for martial law could be quickly implemented and carried out under REX 84. The Cheney/Bush administration has a plan which would accommodate the detention of large numbers of American citizens during times of emergency. The plan is called REX 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984. Through Rex-84 an undisclosed number of concentration camps were set in operation throughout the United States, for internment of dissidents and others potentially harmful to the state. The Rex 84 Program was originally established on the reasoning that if a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA.
Pro First I would like to thank my opponent for accepting this debate. I hope this debate will shed light on some topics that hopefully effect people's views.
O n the cover of the most recent book produced by Project Censored is a photo of protesting college students in California getting pepper sprayed by a cop. The shot is framed in such a way that much of the focus is on the spectators holding their cell phone cameras up to capture images of the assault. In a way, the picture captures something essential about Project Censored: the idea that journalism can be pried from the grip of corporate media and democratized. That philosophy has driven the project since its launch at California's Sonoma State University in 1976. In the years since then, the nonprofit effort has grown to include contributors from around the world who submit stories they believe have been "underreported, ignored, misrepresented, or censored by the U.S. corporate media," as the project's website words it.
WASHINGTON, D.C. - At a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Thursday, Gen. Joseph Dunford, the nominee to be the next commander of U.S. and coalition forces in Afghanistan, praised legislation U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., helped write that aims to keep U.S. taxpayer dollars from flowing to enemy hands in Afghanistan, Ayotte's office said.
By Michael Webster: Syndicated Investigative Reporter. Nov 7, 2012 at 5:00 PM PDT The President signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act ( NDAA ) under the radar late on New Years Eve of 2011. The new law takes away American basic constitutional rights. The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution states that the government may not take the life, liberty or property of any person without due process .
State lawmakers in Texas are fighting to reassert their citizens’ Fourth, Sixth, and Eighth Amendment rights. Republican legislators have submitted two bills, one to remove the indefinite detention provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and the other to stop the intrusive screening procedures of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). HB149 , the Texas Liberty Preservation Act filed by state Rep. Lyle Larson, targets the most controversial provisions of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act.

Eric Blair Activist Post By now anyone who pays attention to politics knows that the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2012 contained a provision that allows for the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens without charge or trial. Section 1021 of the 2012 NDAA states that anyone suspected of being involved in terrorism or “belligerent acts” against the U.S. can be detained by the military under the so-called Authorization for Use of Military Force , including American citizens. In other words, the war on terror has been officially declared on U.S. soil and everyone is now considered a potential combatant in this war. Senator Lindsey Graham pretty much summed it up when he said, "The homeland is part of the battlefield and people can be held without trial whether an American citizen or not."

Tuesday, 03 April 2012 11:42 Written by Jeff Henry I have rarely been as concerned for the future of freedom and our Constitution as I have been since the passage last December of S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012. I have rarely felt more frustrated with a politician than I am with Colorado Senator Michael Bennet (D) for responding to concerns about NDAA with nothing but disinformation and silence. People with expertise in this area have voiced grave concerns about provisions of NDAA, particularly in Section 1031, which allow the government to arrest and indefinitely detain U.S. citizens without charge or due process based on mere suspicions about their support for terrorism or terrorist organizations. Concerns about provisions so antithetical to the Constitution would be warranted any time.
November 27, 2012 Human Rights, Religious, and Civil Liberties Groups Ask Obama to Keep His Promise to Close Guantánamo Prison FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: (212) 549-2666; email@example.com WASHINGTON -- A broad coalition of human rights, religious, and civil liberties groups wrote to President Obama today to urge him to veto the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) if it impedes the closing of the Guantanamo prison by extending restrictions on transferring detainees from the facility. The current transfer restrictions are due to expire on March 27, but the pending NDAA bills in Congress would extend the restrictions for the remainder of the current fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30. The letter explains that, if the restrictions are extended, "the prospects for Guantanamo being closed during your presidency will be severely diminished, if not gone altogether."

Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) today introduced an Amendment to the NDAA that would ban indefinite detention of U.S. citizens . The language of the amendment assures that no authorization to use military force, war declaration or any similar authority would allow an American apprehended in the United States to be held without charge or trial. Co-sponsors include Senators Paul (R-Ky.), Coons (D-Del.), Collins (R-Maine), Lautenberg (D-N.J.), Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Kirk (D-Ill.), Tester (D-Mont.), Johnson (D-S.D.), Sanders (I-Vt.), Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Baucus (D-Mont.) and Heller (R-Nev.) The 668 page NDAA bill for 2013 is S. 3254, available here . <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Opponents of the post-9/11 use of indefinite military detention have filed an emergency motion with the U.S. Supreme Court, seeking to block a law they say allows innocent American citizens to be locked away without trial. The motion , submitted on Wednesday, asks the Supreme Court to reinstate an injunction against a key portion of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012. Unless the court does so, the motion argues, Americans are "in actual and imminent danger of losing their core First Amendment rights and fundamental Equal Protection liberties."
By Wells Bennett Thursday, November 29, 2012 at 4:09 PM Here’s the Obama Administration’s statement of policy regarding the Senate’s version of the NDAA for FY2013. The document begins as follows: The Administration appreciates the Senate Armed Services Committee’s continued support for our national defense and supports a large number of the provisions in S. 3254, the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2013, such as its support for both the base budget and for overseas contingency operations; the Administration’s initiative to modernize the military retirement system; and authorities that enhance the Department of Defense’s (DOD’s) ability to operate in unconventional and irregular warfare, counter unconventional threats, or support contingency or stability operations.
A reprise of last year’s war in Washington over whether or not Americans can be indefinitely detained without trial is occurring already. The Senate has approved a measure that voids parts of the 2012 NDAA, but the White House says they plan to veto. Just hours before lawmakers in the US Senate overwhelming voted in favor of an amendment that will challenge controversial provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, the Obama administration cited seemingly unrelated sections of the annual Pentagon spending bill as the reasoning behind a planned veto.
On Thursday afternoon, Republican Senator Rand Paul (Kentucky) agreed to a compromise and co-sponsored amendment 3018 to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) . Paul worked with Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein (California), Republican Senator Mike Lee (Utah), and 14 other co-sponsors to help ensure the passage of amendment 3018 -- better known in medial circles as the "Feinstein Amendment." On Thursday evening, the Senate approved this amendment by a veto-proof margin of 67 to 29 . While supporters of the Fienstein Amendment assert this bill fully reaffirms an American's right to due process -- a right that had previously been put at risk by section 1021 of the NDAA , many politicians and liberty-leaning critics contend the 'Feinstein Amendment' alone cannot adequately protect an American's constitutional right to due process.
