Default US Senate wants the entire USA to be a ”battleground”

This bill passed in a 93-7 vote, declares the entire USA to be a ”battleground” upon which U.S. military forces can operate with impunity, overriding Posse Comitatus and granting the military the unchecked power to arrest, detain, interrogate and even assassinate U.S. citizens with impunity.

So have you read all 925 pages of the bill or are you just relying on a Swedish website for interpretation?

A simple bill from congress does not override the constitution, despite what a Swedish web site or anyone else thinks.

Yeah, I would think that would be making big news on someplace like Fox news.

It sure is hard to have a good handle on the truth and what's pure bullshit these days. That's why I rely on Bruce to keep me properly informed.

Someone should tell this to Congress.



Here is what I could dig up.

http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-1...12s1867pcs.pdf

See section 1031 starting on page 359.

The final wording has not been adopted by both the Senate and the HoR, so the language could still change. I consider this to be a potentially dangerous bill if passed in the current form.

BTW it has been in the news for some time now.

Yes, they do need to be reminded from time to time.

It should also be noted that this is a military appropriations bill. Anyone voting against it would get labled as "anti-military".
