Jim Deakin opposes S.3081 sponsored by opponent McCain

Jim Deakin

For Immediate Release: Wednesday, March 17, 2010

Jim Deakin took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. After nearly 30 years in Congress McCain continues to propose bills in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution.

Fresh off the defeat of McCain/Feingold by the US Supreme Court, McCain has once again proposed legislation which violates the following provisions of the U.S. Constitution; Habeas Corpus, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 8th Amendments.

Bill S. 3081 the ‘‘Enemy Belligerent: Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010’’.

SEC. 5. Detention without trial of unprivileged enemy belligerents

An individual, including a citizen of the United States, determined to be an unprivileged enemy belligerent under section 3(c)(2), in a manner which satisfies Article 5 of the Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War, may be detained without criminal charges and without trial for the duration of hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, in which the individual has engaged.

The resulting authority of this bill would circumvent the United States Constitution and the civil rights of U.S. Citizens.

We must fight terrorism where it exists with all necessary and prudent means at our disposal. And, we must protect the citizens of the United States, even from our own government.

Jim Deakin is a candidate for United States Senate for Arizona

    For someone who swore to “uphold and defend the Constitution … and bear true faith and allegence to the same” McRINO certainly: a)hasn’t read it, b) didn’t understand it, c) or is violating his oath of office deliberately. No surprise after his trashing of the first amendment with McCain-Feingold.

    So let’s talk specifics rather than spew more uninformed, uneducated and insufferable drivel.

    If you follow Deakin’s logic to its rightful conclusion. He would like to see GITMO closed.

    While I concur with many points Ron Paul and his followers make, this twisted logic is the major flaw with the Libertarian point of view. They are weak on national defense and isolationist in general. They assume that all other nations will play by the rules. They join the Democrats in calling Iraq an unjust war. Leave it to them and we will all be speaking Chinese sooner than later.

    What part of “enemy belligerent” don’t you understand. The government isn’t round you up and put you in hole for no reason, well yet anyway.

    nightcrawler,

    Have you actually read the bill? The bill asks the President to determine criteria for designating an individual as a “high-value detainee” if he/she: (1) poses a threat of an attack on civilians or civilian facilities within the U.S. or U.S. facilities abroad; …. or (5) such other matters as the President considers appropriate.

    Number five is the catch. I want you picked up, locked up and held because I, the President, don’t like you. That is an unconstitutional taking of the rights of US citizens on US soil.

    This bill is unnecessary. Military law regarding nonuniformed combatents has always been clear and handles all that is required. German operatives caught in the US committing sabotage during WW II were tried and hanged. Nonuniformed combatent have no rights under the Geneva Conventions. Gitmo is covered under current military law. This bill is unneeded and harmful.

    Not quite…Here is a link to the bill..

    The world has changed since WWII. We are entering an era of “homegrown” US citizen terrorists. See Britain for a preview.

    Bottomline, is that activity cannot stand if we are to survive as a nation.

  5. Stephen Kohut says

    I’ve had the bill monents after it was posted on the Senate website and read it in detail. Bottom line is we cannot survive a taking of our Constitutional rights as this legislation proposes. Current law, both military and civil, is and has been adequate through multiple wars including cases in the US of enemy sabatage and treason.

    Our rights are non-negotiable. If you want to give up yours than you are happy to relocate to and obtain citizenship in the appropriate county that does not believe we were endowed by our creator with certain inalienable right, which is every country but our.

    Every US terrorist incident has had the complicity, or even help, from our own government.

    The passportless Christmas underwear bomber bypassed security and was escorted onto his plane by US intelligence. http://www.examiner.com/x-18425-LA-County-Nonpartisan-Examiner~y2010m1d2-US-lies-about-Flight-253-crotch-bomber-patsy-summary-of-the-evidence-Yemen-attack-implication

    Fort Hood shooter Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan repeatedly communicated with alleged Al-Qaeda leaders for nearly a year before his rampage. He “sent 10 to 20 e-mails to several terror-related Islamic figures, including Anwar Aulaqi, a radical imam from Virginia who has been openly propagandizing for al Qaeda in Yemen and who had ties to several of the 9/11 hijackers.” http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/item_Bqi6bMwstWFXefjamp9CdJ

    The Miami 7 were played up by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales as planning to “wage a ground war against America” turned out to be a bunch of resourceless idiots completely led on by an FBI informant: http://www.historycommons.org/entity.jsp?entity=narseal_batiste_1

    Astoundingly, many sources show that the CIA/FBI abetted the 9/11 hijackers months and even days prior to their attack. The government knew exactly who these guys were and what they were doing at all times: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2010/02/us-counterterrorism-officials-insisted.html

    It goes on and on and on.

    Our rulers have a vested interest in controlling us. It’s not about keeping us safe. It’s about more power for them and less freedom for us.

    Stop surrendering our rights. Government will NEVER be able to keep you safe, especially from government itself, and especially if they are the ones supplying the terror in the first place.

    And way to go Jim Deakin for rejecting this monstrosity of a bill from a known anti-constitution CFR member. (did you notice that Scott Brown cosponsored this atrocity?)
