More lies: Obama signs into law unconstitutional National Defense Authorization Act to arbitrarily detain American citizens after promising to veto it
by Jonathan Benson, staff writer
(NaturalNews) Corruption, betrayal, and lies -- these are the adjectives appropriate to describe the legacy that President Barack Obama is etching into the annals of his political career -- and they are ones that are now further solidified after signing the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
Some in the mainstream media are blaming his inability to stand up to political pressure, as if this is some sort of justification for his saying one thing and doing another. Others with a more keen awareness of reality and understanding of logic, though, see it as the clear betrayal it truly is. In plain terms, Mr. Obama has officially destroyed what remained of the Bill of Rights -- even after saying he would do the opposite.
In case you missed it, the US Congress recently passed NDAA, which provisions the US military to patrol American soil and arrest Americans that are involved with, or even suspected of being involved with, "terrorist" activities. It does not seem to matter to either the legislative or executive branches of the US government that there are already laws in place to deal with those who commit crimes -- now anyone and everyone can be considered a terrorist, and be dealt with accordingly (http://www.naturalnews.com/034414_NDAA_milit...).
And what many Americans fail to realize is that Mr. Obama has been lying about supporting, or not supporting, issues like this ever since the early days of his presidential campaign. Back in 2007, for instance, he promised to close Guantanamo Bay and reinstate the constitutional protections that had been lost by its establishment -- but Guantanamo Bay, of course, is still operational to this day.
Also in 2007, he made statements opposing the illegal wiretapping of Americans, which is a provision of the USA Patriot Act. But when it came time to approve an extension of this expiring assault against the US Constitution earlier this year, Mr. Obama gleefully signed it, citing the alleged need to "continue dealing with an ongoing terrorist threat" (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/27/pat...).
International Business Times has uploaded a video with highlights of Mr. Obama's long history of lies and deceit that you can view here:
And just so you know, pointing all this out has nothing to do with partisan politics, and everything to do with exposing the truth. Just like predecessor, Mr. Obama is nothing more than a pandering globalist working lock-step with the same evil powers as former President Bush to enslave Americans, and the rest of the world, within a New World Order. And Mr. Obama's signing of NDAA is just one more piece of evidence that confirms this.
