Loss of American Citizenship and Assassinations
(Campaign For Liberty) -- By David McKalip, M.D. --
..."As many of you know, it has been reported that President Obama has signed an order authorizing the assassination of [American Citizen] al-Awlaki... ..no one argues that a President doesn't have the right to issue such an order." Senator Joe Lieberman, 5/6/10.
Imagine you are sitting home on a quiet Sunday afternoon in conversation with your beloved spouse. Suddenly your husband slumps over, blood draining from his head as a sniper's bullet shatters your living room window. Your husband has just been assassinated by a government agent and it is later discovered -- after ten years of painful inquiries carried out under the threat of your own assassination -- that your husband was targeted as an enemy combatant and a terrorist. Just as easily, you and your entire family could have been killed in a home invasion in an attempt to cart off your husband for weeks of torture and lifetime detention or execution in an unknown Federal facility. Your investigation might also reveal that your loved one was targeted mistakenly by a bureaucrat or was a political enemy of officials in the government or their corporate allies.
Thus could be the very near future for American citizens if President Obama, Senator Joe Lieberman and people like Mayor Rudy Giuliani get their way. Lieberman (with Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) and Congressmen Jason Altmire (D-PA) and Charlie Dent (R-PA)) introduced the "Terrorist Expatriation Act" last week. The act would strip "terrorists" of their American citizenship and is in response to the recent attempted bombing of Times Square by an American Citizen -- a former Pakistani granted this privilege in 2009 (Faisal Shahzad). It would make it very convenient to torture and kill any person that is viewed unfavorably by the powerful and arrogant elite sitting in Washington D.C. today. In fact, the New York Times reports that the President has authorized the assassination of American Citizen Anwar al-Awlaki who was born in New Mexico and now is reportedly plotting against America from Yemen.
On ABC's "This Week" (5/9/10), Mayor Rudy Giuliani permanently lost my support when he advocated removing Miranda Rights from American Citizens who are "terrorists". " I would have instead declared him an enemy combatant" says Giuliani of the naturalized American Citizen arrested and accused by the State; an American Citizen who has not even had a 5th amendment right to a trial to ensure he is not actually wrongly accused. Who else would Giuliani, Obama or George Bush declare an "Enemy Combatant"? Would they quietly kill them in the field after a period of torture? Given the categorization of anyone with a Ron Paul or "Don't Tread on Me" bumper sticker as a potential danger to the state and the Department of Homeland Security report on "Right Wing Extremism", just who does the government think a "terrorist" is?...MORE...LINK
