    Bill Amendment Gives AG Holder Authority to Decide Who is a Terrorist

    Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, may soon have the power to classify millions of Americans as domestic terrorists. An amendment to H.R. 2647 (the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010), introduced by Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida, would grant Holder absolute authority to decide who is a terrorist.

    Holder would have the ability to determine what groups and organizations are “of a violent, extremist nature.”


    Hastings’ amendment follows the template advanced by the Department of Homeland Security’s infamous “Rightwing Extremism” report. In the report, DHS argued that “white supremacists” and “antigovernment” activists are recruiting Iraq and Afghanistan veterans to engage in terrorist violence. Section 524, the amendment proposed by Hastings, prohibits the recruitment, enlistment, or retention of “persons associated or affiliated with groups associated with hate-related violence against groups or persons or the United States government” (see PDF of the amendment). The amendment would give Holder the authority to determine what persons are “associated or affiliated with hate groups.”

    In addition to groups or organizations “that espouse or engage in acts of violence against other groups or minorities based on ideals of hate, ethnic supremacies, white supremacies, racism, anti-Semitism, xenophobia, or other bigotry ideologies,” the amendment specifies groups and individuals that “espouse an intention or expectation of armed revolutionary activity against the United States Government, or the violent overthrow of the United States Government.”

    Not long. I was called a terrorist for refusing to sign off on the major fraud that the bank committed and refusing to just let it go. If you refused to be bullied by any of these power mongers you will be called a terrorist. You can be and will be threaten with arrest for standing on the truth and very possibly placed under arrest.

    Now Now, Jillian and Cohorts have ASSURED us this simply won't happen. Don't you remember when she INSISTED we were making shit up? She even neg repped me for calling her on it.

    One step closer to open warfare in this country. The Liberals are bound and determined to alienate and make criminal anyone that might be against them by any means at their disposal. This is an attempt to make large segments of the population ineligible to vote in elections. They will not actually arrest anyone just declare them terrorists and then strip them of the right to vote.

    The only vote that actually means anything anymore is the vote taken in the Obama Household of where they should take their vacation.

    It will not work. Too many Americans are finally waking up and seeing what is happening by the powers of this so called "American government." They are the real terrorists, and you can be sure that Americans are slowly putting their feet back on the ground, getting up from their lazy and apathetic stooper, and if we are blessed, the real America will stand up and smack the real terrorists off the face of the nation.

    I will stand with the real Americans. I have seen this coming for a long time, and have not been able to convince people, but now eyes are finally being opened. Maybe some good will come because of Obama after all.
