US Suspends Constitution in Permanent World War on Terror

=======================================================================================================
THIS IS A GOVERNMENT "OF THE PEOPLE! BY THE PEOPLE! AND FOR THE PEOPLE! PER. ABRAHAM LINCOLN. DON'T YOU DARE FORGET IT!
SUSPENDING THE CONSTITUTION IS AN "ACT OF TREASON" by those who entered into a "Contract" to Represent the We the People. They went so far with this "Contract" set fort in SEVEN ARTICLES; They took an Oath to Uphold, Protect and Defend the CONTRACT. A little time passed then the LIGHT BULBS went on. Oh my God! Not a single thing to "Protect the People from the very same thing we gave notice to the entire world of Civilized Societies recently fought and DECLARED OUR INDEPENDENCE. This gave birth to the Bill of Rights first 10 Amendments.

The CONSTITUTION belongs to WE THE PEOPLE. Not a single DICTATOR, OR GROUP OF LEGISLATORS, KINGS OR QUEENS have the Power to DISOLVE or SUSPEND that which they took OATH TO UPHOLD, PROTECT AND DEFEND! [VKD]
US Suspends Constitution in Permanent World War on Terror
21-May-2013 13:28:4

Two disturbing developments have occurred in the last couple of days that have gone relatively unnoticed compared to the recent IRS, AP, and Benghazi scandals.

First, the senate is debating an expansion of the already broad powers of the 2001 Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) so the U.S. can essentially engage any area in the world in the war on terror, including America. Which brings us to the second development: the Pentagon has recently granted itself police powers on American soil.

Assistant Secretary of Defense Michael Sheehan told Congress yesterday that the AUMF authorized the US military to operate on a worldwide battlefield from Boston to Pakistan. Sheehan emphasized that the Administration is authorized to put boots on the ground wherever the enemy chooses to base themselves, essentially ignoring the declaration of war clause in the US Constitution.

Senator Angus King said this interpretation of the AUMF is a "nullity" to the Constitution because it ignores Congress' role to declare war. King called it the "most astoundingly disturbing hearing" he's been to in the Senate.

Great people fought and died for these rights. If you don't realize that they are being taken away from you right now, frankly, you don't deserve them.
