The last day of 2011 was also the last day of representative democracy in America, as Corporate Fascist Puppet President Barack Obama chose the New Year’s Eve holiday to sign the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (H.R.1540) into law:
Little if any mention of this quiet coup was made in our corporate-controlled television news, so if you were busy celebrating, updating your Fakebook page or keeping up with the Kardashians, here’s the 411:
Along with signing NDAA, Obama released a Presidential Signing Statement in which he assured “Moreover, I want to clarify that my Administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens. Indeed, I believe that doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a Nation.”
That sounds reassuring, but it doesn’t mean much. “Presidential Signing Statements” are political documents that have no Constitutional basis and do not modify the laws to which they refer. In these Orwellian times, Obama’s empty promise that we have nothing to worry about should warn us that in fact we have plenty to worry about.
No more Left. No more Right. It’s time to Unite. To Stand and Fight!
