!!!! URGENT !!!! Congress To Vote On Declaration Of WORLD WAR III

I watched this video and asked my friend Lar who posted it on Facebook the following: "What is the bill number?!?! I need to look this up! I haven't seen this legislation in the pike." Well, come to discover to my dismay, the sneaky SOB's in Congress tucked this provision away in the H.R. 1540: National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). THIS IS NOT A FRICKEN JOKE!

Obama has ordered unmanned drone bombing in Pakistan and Yemen and we are not at war with them. He's been doing this without congressional approval. I made the point last week that Al Qaeda is all over the world, does Obama intend to bomb every country where they believe Al Qaeda members are hiding?! Well now they are sneaking in this provision to cover his ass! AND Obama will now be authorized to use military force ALL OVER THE WORLD! including the United States on American citizens who they "suspect" to be terrorists!

The Department of Defense Dictionary of Military Terms defines terrorism as:
The calculated use of unlawful violence or threat of unlawful violence to inculcate fear; intended to coerce or to intimidate governments or societies in the pursuit of goals that are generally political, religious, or ideological.
That definition clearly defines the private and public UNION MOBSTERS! But this administration already looks at the T.E.A. party as "intended to coerce or to intimidate governments or societies in the pursuit of goals that are generally political, religious, or ideological." You know they see us as the RADICALS because we want to remain a REPUBLIC and are demanding they follow our US constitutional principles!

If you would like to read the article "Congress To Vote On Declaration Of World War 3 — An Endless War With No Borders, No Clear Enemies" the person is referencing in this video, please click HERE. It is very long but chock full of information. They also provided several other mainstream media sources that have been reporting on this too.

As we blogged last week, a hugely important provision for Congress to authorize a new worldwide war has been tucked away inside the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The bill was marked up by members of the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) last Wednesday that poured into Thursday morning (2:45 a.m. to be exact).

A couple of minutes past midnight, Rep. John Garamendi (D-Calif.) offered an amendment to strike Sec. 1034 — the new authorization for worldwide war provision — from the NDAA. Visibly angry that such a large sweeping provision had not yet had any public hearing whatsoever, he vigorously characterized it as a very broad declaration of war.

Rep. Garamendi was very concerned by the limitless geographic boundaries of the provision. Essentially, it would enable the U.S. to use military force anywhere in the world (including within the U.S.) in search of terrorists.

He also alluded to the idea that the HASC might not have proper jurisdiction over such a provision in the first place, suggesting that it would be an issue for the House Foreign Affairs Committee to take up. Clearly, he was beyond troubled by the fact that this markup was the very first time either committee has discussed the provision.

Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) was the only member to speak in support of Sec. 1034 of the NDAA. Interestingly enough he didn't reply to the declaration of war charge by Rep. Garamendi.

In defense of Sec. 1034, and in opposition of the amendment, Rep. Thornberry said the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) of 2001 was hastily written and it is no longer responsive to the threat Americans face from terrorists today. He said the provision in the NDAA updates the 2001 AUMF and it is an especially good time to address it in light of the capturing and killing of Osama bin Laden.

Debate on the Rep. Garamendi's amendment ended when he withdrew it, and declared that he plans to introduce it again on the House floor where he expects a fully engaged debate.

So, while a new authorization for worldwide war has had its first public debate, it unfortunately only lasted a hair over 10 minutes and occurred after midnight.

Though it is a very troubling expansion of war authority, it has been lingering for more than three years as a “sleeper provision,” and it is finally getting the attention of some members of Congress. We hope that further debate in Congress in the weeks ahead will allow for a more in-depth examination of unchecked authority to wage worldwide war, and what the outcomes of such a provision will yield.

Stay engaged — you can help now by telling your representative to oppose any new and expanded war authority. The debate over the NDAA and its multitude of amendments will begin the week of May 23, and we suspect it will be a lively one.
