Indefinite Detainment

Indefinite Detainment

The incarceration by a national government or law enforcement agency without a trial that is increasingly being used as a way of handling dissent. Indefinite detention (termed as “controversial” by Wikipedia) breaches a multitude of national and international laws, including human rights laws. Article 9 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights affirms “the right to liberty and security of person,” adding “(n)o one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest or detention.” Anyone arrested “shall be informed at the time of arrest of the reasons” for this action “promptly…”. America’s Fourth Amendment prohibits “unreasonable searches and seizures…”. The Fifth Amendment affirms the right of due process of law” in any proceeding that denies a citizen “life, liberty or property.” America’s Eighth Amendment prohibits “cruel and unusual punishments”. In recent years, national governments have begun removing legal obstacles to indefinite detention, often beginning first with low status minorities such as immigrants or alleged terrorists.

The nation’s 14th Amendment states “(a)ll persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof…”. “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of (US) citizens..nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law…”

Supreme Court rulings affirmed Bill of Rights protections. Retired Justice Anthony Kennedy sided with a majority 2008 ruling, saying:

“Until such time as it can be definitively proven that citizens no longer require the protections provided by the Bill of Rights, it shall remain the principal legal guidance for the United States of America.”

High Court constitutional protections are supposed to be inviolable. Yet the rule of law in America is being systematically eroded. In 2012, America’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) legitimized indefinite detentions prohibited by international law. It permits America’s military to arrest and indefinitely detain anyone uncharged and untried at home and abroad, including US citizens – holding them on suspicions, hearsay, secret evidence, or none at all. It denies due process, equal protection under law, habeas rights, and virtually all others. US authorities may order anyone arrested and imprisoned indefinitely without charge or trial. Abuse of power replaced rule of law protections, a giant step toward full-blown tyranny in America.

The Bundy Ranch Stand-off: Heavily-armed feds Surround Nevada Bundy Ranch, Confiscate & Shoot Cattle

In an epic standoff that Infowars reporter David Knight described as being like “something out of a movie,” supporters of Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy advanced on a position held by BLM agents despite threats that they would be shot at, eventually forcing Bureau of Land Management (BLM) feds to release 100 cattle that had been stolen from Bundy as part of a land grab dispute that threatened to escalate into a Waco-style confrontation. Despite the fact that Bureau of Land Management officials agreed to cease their operation to seize Bundy’s cattle after a massive public backlash, Bundy demanded ...

Draconian NDAA 2014 approved by Obama

Draconian NDAA 2014 approved by Obama

NDAA 2014 underwrote $662 billion for continued US aggression in our many foreign wars while, on the domestic front, it violates the Bill of Rights. According to the American Civil Liberties Union, it authorizes presidents “to order the military to pick up and imprison people, including U.S. citizens, without charging them or putting them on trial” (as it did in the 2011-13 versions). The ACLU charges the provisions of NDAA “were negotiated by a small group of members of Congress, in secret, and without proper congressional review (and), are inconsistent with fundamental American values embodied in the Constitution….(our) fundamental freedoms ...

China passes Mental Health Law Legalizing Caging & Drugging of Political Dissidents whom Psychiatry will Label ‘Mentally Ill’

On October 26, 2012, after working on a draft law for close to 27 years, China finally passed its first Mental Health Law; that law took effect on May 1, 2013. Hopes were that the new law would change the political psychiatry of caging, drugging, or both to political dissidents and the lack of care  for the actual mentally ill. Neither of those has changed since the law went into effect. In “Cage People,” the Chinese reporter estimates that in Hebei Province alone 100,000 'mentally ill' individuals are kept in cages as their only form of treatment.  Although the ...

Obama Signs NDAA 2013 into Law Making Assassinations, Indefinite Detention, Propaganda Manipulation of U.S. Citizens Legal

The National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 (H.R. 4310) was signed into law by President Obama, which allows for the indefinite detention and the assassination of US citizens, without due process, and makes it officially sanctioned and legal for our government to LIE to us and use propaganda as it pretty much deems it necessary which made it into the final, approved version of the bill, hours before its passage by the Congress in May. The new law also allows the government to indefinitely detain US citizens without due process if suspected of terrorism. The 2013 version of the NDAA allows the State ...

Obama signs NDAA 2012 Legalizing Use of Propaganda and Indefinite Detainment of US Citizens

Excellent article below by Alton Lu, an 18-year-old senior in high school at the time Back in the beginning stages of the War on Terrorism, President Bush enacted the Patriot Act. This allowed the government to spy on citizens, monitoring their activities in order to discern whether or not someone is a terrorist. It brought about changes in law enforcement that allowed agencies to search phones, financial records, etc. One of the most controversial aspects of the law is authorization of indefinite detention of non-U.S. citizens. Immigrants suspected of being terrorists would be detained without trial until the War on Terrorism ...

Leaked US Army Document Details Plan for Re-Education FEMA Camps in America

A leaked U.S. Army document (May 2012) prepared for the Department of Defense contains shocking plans for “political activists” to be pacified by “PSYOP officers” into developing an “appreciation of U.S. policies” while detained in prison camps inside the United States. The document, entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations (PDF) was originally released on a restricted basis to the DoD on February 12, 2010, but has now been leaked online.

British Court of Human Rights Rules Indefinite Detention Without Charge Wrong

British Court of Human Rights Rules Indefinite Detention Without Charge Wrong

The policy, which allowed foreign nationals to be detained without police interview, charge or trial whilst British suspects roamed free, failed to address the security issue whilst irrationally discriminating against one group of suspects. Director of Liberty, Shami Chakrabarti said; “Of course the Court of Human Rights has vindicated the Law Lords 2004 ruling that detention without trial was a bad policy that failed to address either fairness or security.” “£2 per day of unlawful detention is hardly hitting the jackpot. Whilst the damages will disappoint the detainees, they explode the myth of the human rights compensation culture.” The ...

During the 9/11 ‘False Flag’ Event, a Shadow Government is Formed Under the Guise of the Emergency Need for Continuity of Government

Hours after the 9/11 attacks, a "shadow government" is formed. Key congressional leaders say they didn't know this government-in-waiting had been established. [CBS, 3/2/02, Washington Post, 3/2/02, more] Dick Cheney responded by using devious means to install a small cabal of lawyers - most notoriously John Yoo - who proceeded conspiratorially in the next weeks to exclude their superiors, while secretly authorizing measures ranging from warrantless surveillance and detention to torture. Some of these were measures which Cheney and Rumsfeld had previously been preparing for almost two decades, as central figures in the secret agency planning for so-called Continuity of Government ...
