Two 30-second MTV ads warn Americans what NDAA authorizes under ‘law’

MTV created two public service announcements to encourage young Americans to understand and stand for their civil rights.

The 2006 Military Commissions Act and 2012 NDAA “legislated” dictatorial authority to declare any person a “terrorist supporter,” seize such persons, and hold them indefinitely and without rights.

The two-minute video here is Defense Secretary Panetta claiming US law allows assassinating Americans if government merely says an American is guilty of a crime. This, of course, is in Orwellian and “emperor has no clothes” obvious violation of unalienable rights and Constitutional rights.

They are also crimes that trigger those with arrest authority to use it. 

The 5th and 6th Amendments of the US Constitution promise that if the government is to seize you, let alone assassinate you, they have to follow due process to secure persons’ unalienable rights:

“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury (that means a jury of one’s peers, not the dictatorship of “the leader”)… nor shall any person… be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;…

“In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury…, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.”

Department of Defense Chief Counsel Jeh Johnson spoke to Yale’s law school and repeated the claim of government authority to dictate any American as a “terrorist” or “terrorist supporter” and be assassinated. The 5th Amendment affirms your right that government cannot deprive you of your life without the above explicit due process. Importantly, Mr. Johnson, the War Department’s top “legal” voice, had more to say: government-dictated assassinations cannot be legally challenged through US courts.

President Obama has also instructed Justice Department lawyers to defend unlimited warrantless searches, in obvious violation of the 4th Amendment. Such searches could be claimed as evidence of “supporting terrorism” and then not subject to review after assassination.

    You’re just now seeing this? You are behind the times. The NDAA is just another incremental step to martial law and the one world govt NWO. Try looking up Rex 84, Operation Gardenplot, Continuity of Government, FEMA camps, and while you’re at it you might want to go back and see how 9/11 was done by our own govt as a redeux of the Reichtstagg Fire in order to build the mechanism (DHS, TSA, Patriot Act, body scanners, etc) to go after “terrorists”, which is anyone who believes in God and the Constitution. And when you are done with all that and understand that Satan worshipping illuminati run the planet, then get on your knees and get right with God because the Rapture and Isaiah 17:1 are coming up next.

    • no…., I’m engaged in ongoing communication of this to empower the 99% to recognize the history you list, have the intellectual integrity and moral courage to call massive crimes what they are as massive crimes, arrest the criminals, and unleash humanity.

      Occupy is an opportunity. We should empower and do what we can for the 99%’s freedom from fascism.

        It’s not the 99% vs the 1%, that’s a distracting meme if there ever was one…It’s 100% vs. the Government.

    I could understand the ‘illuminati’ wanting this; but, why, oh why, did my Rep. in Congress vote for NDAA? If I vote for a Dem against her I will only get something even worse. We are clearly at the end of the line, as far as representative gov. goes in the US. I first thought this when Hussein was installed.

    Its great that the ads bother to point out what has become obvious to many of us – that we are not a full-fledged police state – but what about accountability? Nowhere is there any mention that OBAMA, the majority of house Democrats, or the majority of Senate Democrats supported this latest bill. MTV talks a good talk, but count on them to be supporting the same proponents of this legislation when election time comes around. If they really cared they would point out that ONLY ONE current candidate for the white house in the two major parties has voted AGAINST the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, the NDAA, and every other piece of subversive legislation that has come before him. That candidate of course is RON PAUL, but don’t look to MTV to upset the welfare state elite by pointing out that fact. They only care about getting folks “engaged” in the process, not about actually doing anything to reverse the trend. And by the way, shame on every republican that voted for these horrible bills as well.

      David – the sad truth is that many folks still believe more government will solve the bad parts of government. They are blinded by cults of personality like Obama and think that things will change if we give him a second term. Sadly they are mistaken. Then we have folks on the GOP side that are running with the “Anyone but Obama” chant much like Democrats did against Bush. In both cases the party leaders helped push a milktoast candidate (Kerry = Romney). A couple of empty suit plastic men who will do whatever it takes to maintain power. BHO hasn’t been any better.

      “An idea whose time has come cannot be stopped by any army or any government.”
      -Ron Paul

      We the people must be the change – we mustn’t let ourselves be cajoled and coddled into thinking some individual will save us – it is the idea of FREEDOM and LIBERTY that will save.

      Paul is the messenger.

      We are the movement.

    America is an Orwellian police state.

    Open your eyes and choose whose side you are on.

    How does this not call for an impeachment order against President Obama? By signing this into law, he’ll be breaking his oath of office. This country managed to avoid impeachment of (and prosecution against) George W, and now we’re just ignoring more wrongdoings. I voted for President Obama, but I won’t be voting for him the next time around.

  • The Gestapo is alive and active! I have a friend who is an International Lawyer who was picked up in Panama over 6 weeks ago and is being held in an Arizona prison with convicted murderers and rapists without being arraigned or charged with a crime. We do not know what is happening or why he was arrested. Knowing him I know that he was always careful to follow the letter of the law, but he has been advising people to get out while they still can.

    Be Careful, Very Careful we may be next.

    People there is only one solution which can be implimented by you, the people of this country to change the federal governmental contrals over your lives. You need a powerful origanization which you can influence. It is obvious that we the people cannot influence this current federal government. Its like trying to stop a runaway truck going downhill, with brakes designed for a car. It can’t be done, however, you can get the state government to oppose any law, rule, regulation, or policy that the federal government passes which violates the constitution. Tell them what you think , why you need their help to change the course of this country. Central government is out of control .The state governments are the only origanized force powerful enough to oppose the central government. MAke them your sword of justice and restore the great power of the constitution. and say no to any law which violates the constitution, So, if you want to redirect the destructive force , of the central governement , tell your state representatives, governors and state courts that you want your constutuional rights perserved against all agencies who try to violate your rights. Lets see how the federal government deals with all the states who say NO, NO MORE. This will not happen in my state.
    Now, lets say that YOUR STATE REFUSES to listen to your needs and respect the constitution, what answer does that send to you the citizen of this country? Think about it.
    Then you will finally have the answer, you will know exactly where you the people stand, hopefully it is not on quicksand, but on solid foundation supported by your state.
    Only one real way to find out. ask your state for help. Follow the example of Vermont and Some of the towns and cities in Maine. Read and become educated.. I am almost 70 and I tell all you young people out there, this country is yours, but you have to fight for it. Get your state to support your efforts, don’t be part of the PROBLEM, be the SOLUTION.
