While Americans have been preoccupied with “bread and circus” (food and entertainment), many of they’re Constitutional rights have been altered or completely taken away. At the same time this has been occurring, America’s form of government, a Constitutional Republic with three branches, having “checks and balances,” has morphed into a government where the Executive Branch acts at will — a legal dictatorship. Here’s a collection of short videos that will make this clear.
The Patriot Act
National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)
Executive Branch Decisions
Checks and Balances? Not anymore.
Quote: The New York Times is reporting President Obama personally oversees a “kill list” containing the names and photos of individuals targeted for assassination in the secret U.S. drone war. According to the Times, Obama signs off on every targeted killing in Yemen and Somalia and the more complex or risky strikes in Pakistan. National Security Adviser Thomas Donilon said, “He is determined that he will make these decisions about how far and wide these operations will go.” Obama is also said to personally approve every addition to the expanding “kill list.” Individuals on the list include U.S. citizens, as well teenage girls as young as 17 years old. The Times quotes former White House Chief of Staff William Daley about Obama’s decision to assassinate Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen, in Yemen. According to Daley, Obama called the decision to strike the U.S.-born cleric “an easy one.” Since April, the United States has carried out at least 14 drone strikes in Yemen and six in Pakistan. Over the weekend, a U.S. drone strike in Yemen killed at least five people.
