The NDAA is one of the most flagrant anti-constitutional laws created. It suspends posse comitatus, which prevents the federal government to use the military as a police force on American soil.
Now, the president can indefinitely detain any American citizen and hold them indefinitely without a trial.
NDAA 2014, which just quietly passed the House and Senate through fast-tracking, expands on the governments power to detain you.
Section 1071 outlines the creation of the “Conflict Records Research Center”, allows information unconstitutionally obtained by the NSA to be shared with the Department of Defense. The information, called in the wording “captured records,” can be anything from your phone records, emails, browsing history or posts on social media sites.
It authorizes massive spending, including $527 billion in base defense spending for the current fiscal year, funding for the war in Afghanistan, and funding for nuclear weapons programs.
The indefinite detention allowed by the original NDAA is still here, and it’s actually worse now, because there are provisions that will make it easier for the government to target those who disagree. Section 1071 outlines the creation of the “Conflict Records Research Center”, where the unconstitutionally obtained information that the NSA has collected is compiled and shared with the Department of Defense. The information, called in the wording “captured records,” can be anything from your phone records, emails, browsing history or posts on social media sites.One thing that was omitted is the amendment on the prosecution of sexual assaults in the military. So, we can all be locked up indefinitely for crimes that haven’t been proven, but they don’t care so much if military members continue to rape other military members.
It makes no difference which party they represent, the important thing is they aren’t protecting our rights or our constitution.
