Are Drone Strikes on American Citizens Constitutional???
It rarely amazes me anymore when some supposed "journalist" asks dumb, and perhaps even irrelevant questions. The time for these news journalists to awaken, is now.
Number one, the majority of useful idiots in this country just re-elected the first American Dictator. So, the answer is simple. No, nothing is unconstitutional, because America no longer has a Constitution. Barack Hussein Obama does not recognize the Constitution as the rule of law. It has to be apparent to every citizen and especially every "journalist/reporter" that Obama has never been obedient to the Constitution, and if I can see his disdain for the Constitution, then it should be easy for everyone else to see it too. Putting that aside, what about those drones in America's skies?
Is it the drones that are the point of contention? Is it the semi-automatic weapons that are the point of contention? Neither, actually it is the operator of these machines that makes the difference. Any one person with an ounce of common sense knows that guns of any form, make or model, do not shoot themselves, someone has to load, aim and squeeze the trigger. There are even a number of Liberal thinkers that have managed to retain a modicum cerebral function through the Obama brain-washing, know that guns are unable to fire themselves. Which is why "gun control" legislation will not work, so it must be something else Obama, the UN, and our present government as a whole is up to. That, of course is the ultimate disarming of the American people, plain and simple.
The same logic that tells us that "gun control" is futile at best, tells us that surveillance drones in the air over American cities and towns is a potential powder keg of controversy. Logic tells us, that it's NOT the drones, it's the operators and controllers of the drones. The drones are inanimate objects just as "guns" are inanimate objects until an operator/user employs it for what is designed to do, i.e., a gun is designed to fire a projectile in the direction it is pointed by the user. By the same token, a drone is an unmanned flying device designed to do many tasks, but none of these tasks can be accomplished by the drone itself, there must be an operator/controller.
The essence of the problem then is the integrity, honesty, sanity and intention of the controller. The drone can be used for many honest and good life-saving operations. A drone depending on the controller, can be used to locate people who may be trapped in fallen buildings after an earthquake by using heat-sensing devices. It can follow a car full of thieves or terrorists, or a car-jacker without having to engage in a high-speed chase, that could endanger the live of innocent motorists. I could go on and on about the positive aspects of drone use, but I'm sure you can think of dozens of scenarios yourselves, you don't need me to point them out. However, drones, guns, automobiles, knives, baseball bats, hammers, you name it, in the wrong hands can and will become a serious threat to society, that's a given.
In Orwell's novel "1984", the government placed cameras everywhere, a person could not walk down the street without being photographed, a person could not even leave or arrive in their own home without reporting to a camera surveillance station, and show identification. These spy devices were all sold to the people as a protective service for the safety and well being of the public. Soon they became mandatory for every house, apartment and living space. (Hmm, mandatory & mandate, those are two words that are becoming all to familiar) Drones in the hands of narcissistic control freaks will become a serious threat to the well being and privacy of the public. We are told that police drones are for surveillance only, they are not armed. The question is, can they be armed, the answer is "yes". If allowed to continue implementation, they will soon be armed, this you can count on. They will be armed under the guise that it is for the public's protection, and to keep law enforcement officers out of harm's way. It sounds like a worthwhile endeavor, but the diabolical control ramifications are all part of the sinister plan to control the American people. I'm not a fear monger, nor am I an alarmist, but like many others out there, I can see the direction this entire "for the public good" thing is going, and I for one, do not like what I'm seeing.
President Obama wants the power to execute American citizens in suspected of alliance with Al Queda terrorist operations on foreign soil. No trial, no due process. Obama wants to be sole judge, jury and executioner, he also wants to pass along that same authority to his selected (not elected) minions. The last I heard, this is still America, and we don't execute citizens on the suspicion premise, and without due process. Keep in mind, Obama does not recognize the Constitution as the rule of law, do not expect him to abide by it. I could possibly find some justification in executing an American citizen who takes up with known terrorist organizations in foreign counties, whose intent it is to do harm to innocent American citizens. The problem I do have, is where will this all lead? In the hands of people who are maniacally narcissistic and diabolically corrupt as President Obama, it won't be long before armed drones permeate the skies above America's states, cities and towns. This administration will attempt to sell the idea of armed drones to the American public under the premise that it is for the good and safety of the people, and they will not be used unless there is certainty of criminal activity. Which brings us to the crux, doesn't it? Who decides the certainty of criminal behavior? Is it the President alone, or could it be Janet Napolitano, or Eric Holder, or Nancy Pelosi? Perhaps it will be the Mayor of your city or town, or even the Chief of Police, or even worse, the unknown control freak wacko who is operating the drone's remote control unit?
You may or may not be aware that in 2009, the Department of Homeland Security under the leadership of Janet Napolitano named those she felt could be considered terrorists in America. The report was titled: Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970-2008. The reports, or series of reports had this to say: Veterans or anyone that holds a conservative viewpoint should be eyed suspiciously by government as a potential domestic terrorist. Police should be suspicious of any citizen that feels their way of life is endangered, anyone that is religious, and anyone that might be interested in "personal liberty, or "national sovereignty, or firearms." The exact words in the report read as follows: Extreme Right-Wing: Groups that believe that one's personal and or national way of life is under attack and is either already lost or that the threat is imminent (for some, the threat is from specific ethnic, racial, or religious groups), and believe in the need to be prepared for an attack, either by participating in paramilitary preparations and training in survivalism. Groups may also be fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation), anti-global, suspicious of centralized federal authority, reverent of individual liberty, and believe in conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and or personal liberty. Ouch!!! You noticed of course that there is absolutely no mention of Islamic Jihad Terrorists or the domestic Mosques in which they train...
If Barack Hussein Obama or Janet Napolitano ever read my Blog posts, and they get the power to indiscriminately execute suspicious people as described in the above report, I have no doubt that I will be on the Obama/Napolitano domestic terrorist kill list. I do not look forward to a Sidewinder missile hitting my home, but if Obama gets the power, myself and many who write the things I write can anticipate some violent response from this administration.
I am opposed to drones in America's skies, because I have no faith in the integrity or honesty of our government, especially this president who seems to be able to secure anything thing he desires, and is capable issuing illegal executive orders, without congressional outrage. There hasn't been an honest and straight forward administration in this nation since George Washington retired. My faith is in God, and God alone. Any faith I ever had in the American people doing the right thing ended with the re-election of America's first dictator.
God help us.
