United States to lock up its citizens

According to a report from Hal Lindsey, recent legislation which has passed through the US Senate allows the US military to hold civilian detainees in military facilities for indefinite periods, without charges and without due process. Could it happen in the UK also?

 


 

Extract of report from

Hal Lindsey (9/12/11):


 

[An] example of [the] inexorable move toward the control of the populace that will be necessary to implement a one-world government occurred right here in the United States just last week. When all is said and done, it may not stand as law, but just the fact that it happened is important.

The U.S. Senate last week passed S.1867 by a vote of 93-7. That bill, known as The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, authorizes the budget authority of the Defense Department for 2012. Whether or not you agree with the fiscal make-up or future implications of that budget, here's the critical part.

At the last moment, an amendment, drafted in secret by Senators Carl Levin and John McCain, was added to the bill. That amendment authorizes the use of the US military to arrest and detain people -- including American citizens -- suspected of terrorist activities. Here's where it gets alarming. For the first time, it authorizes the use of US armed forces for domestic law enforcement within the United States! Further, it allows the military to hold detainees in military facilities for indefinite periods, without charges, and without due process.

It's possible that the reasoning followed this line: One of the greatest weapons that Islamic terrorists -- especially homegrown or newly radicalized ones -- use against the United States is America's tradition of domestic liberty and freedom of movement and association. Now before you fist pump and yell, "Atta boy! Arrest those terrorists wherever you find them!", consider this: Who determines who's a "terrorist?" In this amendment, apparently the White House gets to make that call.

Uh-oh. If you take just a quick look at the Department of Homeland Security's list of potential terrorists, you'll find Christian extremists, Jewish extremists, anti-immigration extremists, anti-abortion extremists, tax resisters, members of the alternative media, gun owners, former members of the military, and people who stockpile gold or silver. I don't think the "Tea Party" is listed, but it someday might be. Just this week in England, for instance, the government designated some members of the "Occupy London" movement as domestic terrorists.

Hopefully, the media exposure and public outcry will get this provision removed from the final bill, but it nonetheless illustrates how easily these kinds of repressive measures can be implemented. It must have seemed "logical, rational, even necessary" since 93 of our 100 senators voted in favor of it.

 

Ed addendum: A mature believer in England has written concerning the above: "[The above] is written to Americans, but I think it may equally apply to the whole of the New World Order; and so easy to see that Christians – viewed as they are with suspicion by so many unbelievers – may one day be counted as enemies of the state to be "disappeared". I think we should all be aware of this possibillity.

Hal Lindsey is best known as the author of the book 'The Late Great Planet Earth'. He produces a regular report on world affairs. The above report can be found in video form dated 12/09/11 (i.e. 9 Dec. 2011) .

The Federal Emergency Management Agency was established in 1979 as an organisation designed to assist local agencies in dealing with national emergencies.
Following the September 11, 2001 attacks, Congress passed the Homeland Security Act of 2002, which created the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to better coordinate among the different federal agencies that deal with law enforcement, disaster preparedness and recovery, border protection and civil defense.

It is sad to see this sort of gutter level scaremongering being presented on this site.

Conspiracy theories and hype do not further the Kingdom of God and only serve to distil unwarranted and unproven doubts and fears into the masses.

There is enough factual bad in the world without lowering to this sort of half-baked nonsense.
There is nothing proven and nothing to gain by the article here, unless you are only trying to scare people and get them worried.

A much better way to presnt this sort of article by someone who is only reporting something that someone else is using to gain popularity, in a gullible world of superstition and fear, is to explain to readers that when they see this sort of rubbish, or hear it, to give it no place in their hearts and minds, for we serve a Mighty God and we are not moved by such low rate journalism, if it can even be called that (sorry journalists!)

Remind the public that there is a Hope, a Promise, a Surety... His Name is Jesus Christ.

I am not a supporter of Hal Lindsey but I think to simply dismiss this is naive. Yes I agree the video report is rather amateur and harks back to 1970's style of reporting but we do have to be watchmen/women.

We are warned in the Bible to take heed and be prepared.
How would you "A Christian(Guest)" explain the details in the report - should we be alarmed, should we be demanding answers from politicians. Oh and who has paid for these buildings and constructions? What is the purpose?

Try this:
Watch the video without sound.
Add your own script. Don't forget that someone took some footage of a helicopter!

A little research and you'll find the whole scaremongering is part of an almost cultish showmanship and following around the world that includes UFO's, Aliens, Giants and an amazing amount of scary stuff to do just that...
to keep the audience wondering and guessing and worrying and for some, it gets serious and they spend their days and nights thinking they are being watched and they bury food and do all manner of preparation to defend themselves and stay alive for when the baddies come to get them.
It is actually very sad. It is not until you know people like this that you can see how deeply and wrongly they are in bondage to it all.
If you care to listen to some of the regulars on American TV or internet, you will begin to see the pattern of revealing 'secrets' that they have come up with and then telling a whole heap of possibilities that all go on to prove that you just have to stay informed... and so it goes on, but nothing is ever proven to be fact.

Here though is some fact:
Most Americans are already in the prison of Darkness and have no hope and they are dying daily. They don't know Jesus and are perishing.
There is a time coming when a judgement will occur. The result of this judgement will be for some, eternal life, for others... a place far more real and horifying than any rubbish these people are getting rich with. And it won't be just for Americans. Eternity.
Don't get conned by all this conspiracy stuff.

Yes, take heed... unto yourselves and yes, be prepared... to give an answer to those who ask the reason for your hope.

ps.. don't forget the railway tracks in the footage. Scary stuff? Not really.

Scaremongering aside, can anyone actually explain what the areas are for? Are they simply abandoned sites, a disused factory area ??

Now this is not made-up. ISLAMBERG
Islamberg - yes a recognised town/village/area whatever you want to call it.
I dare you to walk through it without being arrested !

"Conspiracy theories and hype do not further the Kingdom of God and only serve to distil unwarranted and unproven doubts and fears into the masses."

Please re-visit the addendum.

The fact is that these facilities do exist. They may be constructed for 'good' reasons e.g. to cope with the massive social disorder that would undoubtably break out if (for instance) there was a national catastrophe (caused by weather, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, nuclear attack etc. etc.).

But the whole point that the writer of the (inserted) addendum is making is that these facilities 'could' be used for other 'less good' purposes. To think otherwise is naive.

The 'good' device invented by IBM was a card-indexing system which was a prototype of the computer systems that the (American) company went on to develop. It was this system which Hitler employed to allow him to so quickly identify the Jews living in Germany.
