Senate Passes Bill that Allows Military to Take Custody of Americans

United States soil will be defined as a battlefield if the Senate has its way. The Senate voted to preserve language that will give the U.S. military a crack at al Qaeda operatives captured in the U.S., even if they are American citizens.

Led by Senator Carl Levin, the Michigan Democrat who chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee, senators voted 61-37 to preserve the language that gives the military custody of al Qaeda suspects, rather than turning them over to law enforcement officials.

President Obama has said he will veto the legislation, but only because he wants the power for himself, as opposed to Congress.

“Any bill that challenges or constrains the president’s critical authorities to collect intelligence, incapacitate dangerous terrorists and protect the nation would prompt the president’s senior advisers to recommend a veto,” the White House said in a statement.


  1. This is great news. No option can be off the table when fighting terrorism. We need to do whatever it takes to win this war.

  2. ^ What war? The war on Americans?

  3. To Obama, Bush, and other trained Nazi minions:

    sieg heil mein fuhrer.

  4. Are you kidding? What are you going to do when they, (the experts and know it all bureaucrats) decide that you are a terrorist?

  5. Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
    Everybody knows that the captain lied
    Everybody got this broken feeling
    Like their father or their dog just died

  7. I'm pretty sure Anonymous @5:31 PM is just being sarcastic.

  8. Leave no option on the table , win the war on terrorism - Johnny Mccain is that you?

    Hang all these traitors that voted for this AntiAmerican Bill & that's exactly what it is

  9. Anon 5:31 - Sarcasm, right?
    Anon 6:29 - The great Leonard Cohen. Canadian, natch.

  10. I'm glad to see we are finally getting serious about combatting terrorism.

    Eff you Rand. What good our my civil liberties if I'm not alive to use them?

  11. Hilarious, that libertarians have to pray for a veto by Obama to preserve our dwindling civil liberties and defend our remaining constitutional rights.

  12. @ Anonymous

    "This is great news. No option can be off the table when fighting terrorism."

    Then i hope someone in a position of power mistakes you for a homegrown terrorist and gives your viewpoint a test drive.

  13. Gesetz zur Behebung der Not von Volk und Reich

    Die von der Reichsregierung beschlossenen Reichsgesetze können von der Reichsverfassung abweichen, soweit sie nicht die Einrichtung des Reichstags und des Reichsrats als solche zum Gegenstand haben. Die Rechte des Reichspräsidenten bleiben unberührt.

    Laws enacted by the government of the Reich may deviate from the constitution as long as they do not affect the institutions of the Reichstag and the Reichsrat. The rights of the President remain undisturbed.

    The Enabling Act of 1933

    We are close folks, we are close...how long will we suffer these fools?

  14. I suspect Senator Carl Levin is an al Qaeda operative. Grab him!

  15. "They" will Not stand for Any bill that challenges or constrains the President! - Isn't that how it should read?

  16. "The Senate voted to preserve language that will give the U.S. military a crack at al Qaeda operatives captured in the U.S., even if they are American citizens."

    Don't phrase it this way! You are doing John McCain's work for him. How do you know they are al Qaeda operatives? The purpose of due process is to determine the truth in an open and impartial manner.

    Anyway, "al Qaeda," like "terrorist," is government code for "Ooooh! Scary person! But worry not, citizen, for your government will protect you! Now bend over..."

  17. It takes two thieves to make an honest bargain, I guess.

  18. This bill is pretty damn good, as proof that Republicans and Democrats are indeed two wings of the bird of PREY.

    They are both fascistic.

    This is not the limit, because it is quite obvious that the limits are being tested, and as long as they are in power and face no serious opposition from the people, they will keep pushing the boundaries on those limits.

  19. As long as I am safe from terrorism, horriblism, disorderism, and disorganizationism.

  20. So what are we to do to stop these types of bills/ammendments at this point? Or stop our reps and turn this ship around?

    They are never in their offices to see any protests or listen to our concerns. Calling, faxing and e-mailing falls on deaf minds.

    Seriously, how do we citizens force our reps to see we are not going to take it any more? We have spent two years trying to get their attention and they completly ignore us.

    I will be voting for Ron Paul, but I expect rampant voter fraud should it look as though he might win.

    What do we do to stop this????? Really. We need some answers out here.

  21. The reason Obama is going to veto it is hilarious, thank god we have warmongers fighting on opposite sides!

  22. God's away on business... Bidnez!

  23. So many converging catastrophes, so little time.
    Time to refresh the tree of liberty with the blood of tyrants.

  24. agreed. violates not one but three of the first 10 amendments. proof that the dems are as corrupt, or in on the plot, with the g.o.p. dont agree much with ron paul but might be forced to vote for him over o'bumma

  25. make sure you all click on the first blue link in the story to get all the facts. worth it. heynow, you know you are right. but it sounds like you are a patriot, oops, i mean terrorist. what is your address? i think you need to be re-programmed.

  26. What is the name of this Bill??? WE have to be able to put this out through word of mouth on social platforms.

  27. The companion bill in the House is HR 1540 and the section is the same 1032. i believe it's the military appropriations bill for 2012. go to www.house.gov and check the schedule, there was alot of activity on it yesterday 12/7, but nothing today, thank god. write your congressman is about all you can do now.
