“Shortly after the passing of the treasonous National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), Lyndon LaRouche said that any legislator who voted for the abomination could soon “find themselves as defendants before a war crimes tribunal.” If a Montana effort to recall the state’s two U.S. Senators who voted for it gains momentum, that day could come sooner than they expect.” (1)
Ron Paul Continues To Hit Fascist NDAA
LAROUCHEPAC – December 27, 2011- In his weekly phone message to supporters, yesterday, Texas Republican Congressman and currently GOP Presidential candidate Ron Paul warned that the National Defense Authorization Act will accelerate the country’s “slip into tyranny” and virtually assures “our descent into totalitarianism.”
Paul said, “The founders wanted to set a high bar for the government to overcome in order to deprive an individual of life or liberty. To lower that bar is to endanger everyone. When the bar is low enough to include political enemies, our descent into totalitarianism is virtually assured. The Patriot Act, as bad as its violations against the Fourth Amendment was, was just one step down the slippery slope. The recently passed National Defense Authorization Act continues that slip into tyranny, and in fact, accelerates it significantly.”
Paul then targetted Obama directly, saying, “The President’s widely expanded view of his own authority to detain Americans indefinitely, even on American soil, is for the first time in this legislation codified in law. That should chill all of us to our cores. The Bill of Rights has no exceptions for really bad people or terrorists or even non-citizens. It is a key check on government power against any person. That is not a weakness in our legal system, it is the very strength of our legal system. The NDAA attempts to justify abridging the Bill of Rights on the theory that rights are suspended in a time of war, and the entire United States is a battlefield in the war on terror. This is a very dangerous development, indeed. Beware.”

Montana Mounts Effort To Recall Senators, LAROUCHEPAC , December 27, 2011 – the Montana effort is taking aim at Democratic Senators Max Baucus and Jonathan Tester, both of whom voted for the bill. The preliminary language of the petition accuses them of violating the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution, which guarantees, “a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed…”
