NEWS BRIEF: "Bush Signs Bill on Terror Prosecution", Woodland Daily Democrat News, October 18, 2006
"WASHINGTON (AP) -- Some of the most notorious names in the war on terror are headed toward prosecution after President Bush signed a law Tuesday authorizing military trials of terrorism suspects. The legislation also eliminates some of the rights defendants are usually guaranteed under U.S. law, and it authorizes continued harsh interrogations of terror suspects."
We shall return to discussing exactly how many rights are being eliminated by this bill, and against whom this bill may be aimed, but first, let us read how President Bush is justifying the exceedingly harsh dictatorial provisions of this Military Commissions Act of 2006. You must stand amazed when you stop to think how much mileage the Illuminati has gotten from one single terrorist attack on an American target -- the attacks on 9/11/2001.
Listen to the President:
"With the bill I'm about to sign, the men our intelligence officials believe orchestrated the murder of nearly 3,000 innocent people will face justice', Bush said in a White House ceremony."
Now, listen to President Bush on September 6, as he justified the need for these Military Commissions, a legal creation designed to deliver "Guilty" verdicts 100% of the time!
NEWS BRIEF: "President Discusses Creation of Military Commissions to Try Suspected Terrorists", White House East Room, September 6, 2006
"THE PRESIDENT: Thank you ... On the morning of September the 11th, 2001, our nation awoke to a nightmare attack. Nineteen men, armed with box cutters, took control of airplanes and turned them into missiles. They used them to kill nearly 3,000 innocent people. We watched the Twin Towers collapse before our eyes -- and it became instantly clear that we'd entered a new world, and a dangerous new war ... Soon after the war on terror began, I authorized a system of military commissions to try foreign terrorists accused of war crimes ... the rules for trying enemy combatants in a time of conflict must be different from those for trying common criminals or members of our own military."
"So today, I'm sending Congress legislation to specifically authorize the creation of military commissions to try terrorists for war crimes. My administration has been working with members of both parties in the House and Senate on this legislation. We put forward a bill that ensures these commissions are established in a way that protects our national security, and ensures a full and fair trial for those accused. The procedures in the bill I am sending to Congress today reflect the reality that we are a nation at war, and that it's essential for us to use all reliable evidence to bring these people to justice."
Let us stop right here to digest what the President has just told the American people:
1) "We are a nation at war" -- Since the Constitution reserves the right of declaring war only to the Congress, on what date did Congress declare "War On Terror"? Because there has been no such Congressional declaration, America is not officially at war. Terrorism against American cities is a tactic, not necessarily War. America is not at war, despite the President's statement to the contrary; the only reason the President's men can continue this rhetoric is because they know the ignorance of the average American citizen.
2) ".... these commissions are established in a way that protects our national security, and ensures a full and fair trial for those accused..." -- We shall shortly show you how great a lie Bush has just uttered. Remember that propaganda maxim we taught you in November, 2001? We showed that the truth of a matter is most often found in the opposite direction of the public rhetoric, a reality I learned while serving in the U.S. Army Intelligence at a Pentagon-level facility for nearly three years.
Please take a few moments to read this most important propaganda maxim: NEWS1558, "Breaking Out of The Mental Box -- Learning To Think In The Opposite Direction To Find The Truth"
3) The President promised to use "reliable evidence" to bring people to justice; yet, as we are about to discover, "Enemy Combatants" are going to be tried, found guilty, and sentenced, on the basis of the most flimsy and false evidence possible. In fact, the whole system of Military Commissions is rigged so as to deny the accused even the most elementary of protections. We shall see this proof shortly.
Now, let us go to an authoritarian source for information on this Military Commissions Act of 2006 - the Wikipedia Encyclopedia. Before we even begin examining the provisions as revealed by Wikipedia, we should take note of the last segment of the URL address, as Wikipedia assigned the words, "Torture_bill" to the URL address! This bill, in time, may be aptly called the "Torture Bill", for it legalizes torture of prisoners, even if such conduct is against the global Geneva Convention! In fact, one of the most important provisions of this bill is that it legalizes the term, "Enemy Combatant" rather than "Prisoner of War".
NEWS BRIEF: "Military Commissions Act of 2006", Wikipedia Encyclopedia
"The United States Military Commissions Act of 2006 is an Act of Congress (Number S.3930) enacted on October 17, 2006. Created in the wake of the exposure of a formerly secret CIA interrogation program, it codifies in law controversial practices relating to the American detention and treatment of prisoners.
"Section 948a of S.3930.ENR [the version passed by both the House and Senate] defines an "unlawful enemy combatant" as:
`(i) a person who has engaged in hostilities or who has purposefully and materially supported hostilities against the United States or its co-belligerents who is not a lawful enemy combatant (including a person who is part of the Taliban, al Qaeda, or associated forces); or
`(ii) a person who, before, on, or after the date of the enactment of the Military Commissions Act of 2006, has been determined to be an unlawful enemy combatant by a Combatant Status Review Tribunal or another competent tribunal established under the authority of the President or the Secretary of Defense."
Please re-read subparagraph (ii), for you will notice that a person does not have to be proven by facts to be an "unlawful enemy combatant", but such a label can be simply applied by the action of a Tribunal, even if no facts are present. As America slips further down the abyss of absolute dictatorship, you must think in these terms, and not in traditional Judicial Jurisprudence terms. As the Illuminati Plan calls for American dissidents to be arrested, incarcerated and even murdered, we should be expecting such a loophole in this law which would ultimately allow the government to designate American citizens as "Enemy Combatants", even if your last name is Jones, Smith, or even Bay!
With this in mind, let us examined the next segment from Wikipedia, as it discusses subparagraph (ii):
"Critics of the Act state that the wording of this definition does not preclude it from being applied to American citizens." (Emphasis added)
We could not have stated this matter any more succinctly! American citizens ARE the final targets. At the next major crisis, our beloved Constitution and our traditional three-part form of government, will be totally set aside. Listen to the Protocols as they explain this part of the plan exactly:
"These laws will withdraw one by one all the indulgences and liberties which have been permitted ... and our kingdom will be distinguished by a despotism of such magnificent proportions as to be at any moment and in every place in a position to wipe out any ... who oppose us by deed or word." [PROTOCOL 5 -- DESPOTISM AND MODERN PROGRESS]
Throughout the rest of this segment, we shall highlight in bold those sections upon which you need to study and meditate most strenuously.
"The Act changes pre-existing law to explicitly disallow the invocation of the Geneva Convention when executing the writ of habeas corpus for detainees who are not U.S. citizens [Section 5(a)]. This provision applies to all cases pending at the time the Act is enacted, as well as to all such future cases. If the government chooses to bring a prosecution against the detainee, a military commission is convened for this purpose. The following rules are some of those established for trying unlawful enemy combatants who are not citizens of the United States. [Sec.948b (a)] The Act does exclude these rules from being applied when trying unlawful enemy combatants who are American citizens, per sections 948b(a) and 948c."
"Certain sections of the Uniform Code of Military Justice are deemed inapplicable - including some relating to a speedy trial [Sec.948b (d)(1)(A)], compulsory self-incrimination [Sec.948b (d)(1)(B)], and pre-trial investigation [Sec.948b (d)(1)(C)].
* A civilian defense attorney may not be used unless they have clearance to view materials classified Secret. [Sec.949c(b)(3)(D)] Most defense attorneys in this country do not currently hold a Secret military clearance, so this rule effectively eliminates the possibility that an accused can be represented by an attorney.
* Based on his findings, the judge may introduce hearsay evidence [Sec.949a(b)(2)(E)(i)], evidence obtained without a search warrant [Sec.949a(b)(2)(B)], evidence obtained when the degree of coercion is disputed [Sec.948r (d)], or classified evidence not made available to the defense [Sec.949d(f)(2)(B)].
In the guise of protecting our freedoms, the President of the United States and the Congress have conspired to take these freedoms away! Under our Constitution, and our Judicial System, this kind of evidence is totally forbidden, since such "evidence" is deemed so terribly unfair and so difficult for an accused to fight. Allowing this kind of "evidence" will usually doom any accused -- even the accused who is totally innocent!
* A finding of Guilty requires only a 2/3 majority [Sec.949m(a)]
* No defendant may invoke the Geneva Conventions in legal proceedings on their behalf. [Section 5(a)] Do you remember the media blitz some weeks ago, when Congress was trying to pass legislation which would force the President and all his men to observe the Geneva Conventions, especially those rules which forbids the torture of prisoners, and which specifically forbids the use of "evidence" obtained through torture.As you can see from the next segment, this Military Commissions Act of 2006 allows "evidence" extracted by torture to be used against the accused.
* The President determines “the meaning and application” of the Geneva Conventions banning the torture of prisoners. [Sec.6 (a)(3)(A)]
* The accused may be tried for the same offense a second time “with his consent” [Sec.949h(a)]. How ridiculous is this? Dictatorial governments of all ages have held the right to keep on "trying" an accused until they get the result they desire. In American Jurisprudence, prosecutors are absolutely forbidden to try an accused on the same criminal charge as a jury had just exonerated him. This is big-time dictatorship! Doubt it not.
* If the military commission returns a finding of Not Guilty, its convening authority is not required to take action on the findings. [Sec.950b(c)(3)] Once again, we find ourselves staring into the eyes of dictatorship! Even if a military tribunal finds an accused "Not Guilty", authorities do NOT have to release him! They can keep him imprisoned for the rest of his life, and can continue torturing him to gain more "evidence" which can be used against him in a new trial.
Just as in the bad old days of Russia's Josef Stalin, Germany's Adolf Hitler, and China's Mao tse Tung, a 100% conviction rate is absolutely guaranteed!
And, remember the sad reality: average American citizens with the surnames Smith, Jones, and Bay are the ultimate targets!
* The bill passed the Senate, 65-34, on September 28, 2006.
* The bill passed in the House, 250-170-12, on September 29, 2006.
* President George W. Bush signed the bill into law on October 17, 2006.
"MSNBC's Keith Olbermann announcing the 'Death of Habeas Corpus' as a result of The Act has been denounced by critics who assert that its wording authorizes the permanent detention and torture (as defined by the Geneva Conventions) of anyone - including American citizens - based solely on the decision of the President. One has described it as 'the legalization of the José Padilla treatment' - referring to the American citizen who was declared an unlawful enemy combatant and then imprisoned for three years before finally being charged with a lesser crime than was originally alleged. A legal brief filed on Padilla's behalf alleges that during this time he was subjected to sensory deprivation, sleep deprivation, and enforced stress positions.
"Amnesty International said that the Act 'contravenes human rights principles'.  An editorial in The New York Times described the Act as 'a tyrannical law that will be ranked with the low points in American democracy, our generation’s version of the Alien and Sedition Acts'."
"American Civil Liberties Union Executive Director Anthony D. Romero said, 'The president can now, with the approval of Congress, indefinitely hold people without charge, take away protections against horrific abuse, put people on trial based on hearsay evidence, authorize trials that can sentence people to death based on testimony literally beaten out of witnesses, and slam shut the courthouse door for habeas petitions'." 
I find it terribly wrong that only the Communist-leaning American
Civil Liberties Union is speaking up against these horrible erosion of our
rights and freedoms. Most Conservative Americans hold such a low opinion of
the ACLU that they will be for anything that the ACLU is against! Therefore,
since only the ACLU is speaking out against these dictatorial provisions,
most Americans will not be aware that, in this instance, the ACLU is right,
a fact most people will not realize until they are on the inside of a concentration
camp, looking outward!
Since the Illuminati Plan is to dismantle America's freedoms, Constitutional guarantees, and impose a dictatorship at the "end of the period" leading up to the World War III which will allow the Masonic Christ to appear on the world scene, we must now realize that we are living in this period. Remember that the Korean nuclear confrontation which will threaten mankind's very existence is also said to be occurring the "end of the period".
Therefore, all discerning people must realize we are truly close to the time of the World War III.
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.

God bless you.
