Drones to Kill Americans?… The Fast Track to Total Communist Submission

Leave a comment

This is from Jan Morgan Media.

I for one will go down fighting rather submit to Communist rule.

Emiliano Zapata 1849-1919 once said, 

It’s better to die upon your feet than to live upon your knees!

 

 

I have been living in a state of incredulity for a couple of days now. I don’t know why I am continuously surprised about the things our current government officials do to destroy our liberties.

I am not shocked so much by the acts of tyrants and power hungry politicians as I am by the response – or lack thereof – of the American people. America is dying a slow, painful death, and we are the unfortunate witnesses of it.

There has been much hype surrounding the hopeful capture of accused cop killer Christopher Dorner. Reports abound that drones will now be used to find and capture Dorner. Some reports indicate that drones will be used to kill this American on American soil. Those accounts are reportedly false. But it doesn’t matter. I have seen the comments of many American citizens who believe the drones should be used to hunt down and murder an American without due process.

In 2011 three American citizens, including Anwar al-Awlaki and his 16 year old son, were killed in targeted drone strikes aimed at them. Americans everywhere celebrated, justifying this illegal act because of al-Awlaki’s ties to al-Qaida. I have no particular compassion for this terrorist. What I have is a fear that, by allowing the government to get away with this unconstitutional act, we have opened Pandora’s Box. All it takes is one incident for the government to get their toe in the door and they can pursue a line of reasoning with the American people that allows them to get away with more and more.

The Constitution and the Bill of Rights were written to protect the American people. It does not matter how heinous their crimes. If does not matter how hated they are. Once you allow the government to abuse the rights of others you can kiss your rights goodbye. Any one of us could be painted in the state run media as subversive, a terrorist, a danger to society…all it takes is one government official to decide you are an inconvenience to him. If you have read Dorner’s manifesto you will see the rage of a man who sees corruption and cover up. By his account, this man has a moral code he lives by and that code has been offended by the actions of his corrupt peers. If you listen to the media, Dorner is a loner with control and anger issues who has experienced troubles wherever he goes. Which account is accurate? Is there veracity to both? How will we know if this man is not given due process?

Yet there are people who claim to be patriotic Americans who not only condone these illegal acts of government, but who promote them. How is that possible? Are Americans so far removed from their own history, or the history of the world? Are we really so oblivious to the purpose of our founding documents? We are in grave danger of losing the Republic our founding fathers gave us while all around us enemies of liberty cry for more restrictions, Robin Hood tactics, entitlements, and government intervention into our everyday lives.

If you see news reports that drone strikes were used to murder any American citizen on American soil you will know we are on the fast track to total communist submission. I doubt, after the lack of outcry over al-Awlaki’s drone strike murder without due process, that enough Americans will recognize the danger and protest in earnest. The tide of communism is rolling across America at an alarmingly fast pace and it is picking up speed. American citizens are happily giving away their liberties for the false promise of security. History buffs know we are doomed to have neither. I’ve always been an optimistic person. I’m not feeling so optimistic these days, especially as I watch the reactions of Americans to the fulfillment of the Communist Manifesto. Sometimes we get just what we ask for, to our own detriment. God help us.

Former Obama Press Secretary: 16 Year Old American Killed In Drone Strike Should Have Had “More Responsible Father”

Leave a comment

This is from Freedom Outpost.

This story is very scary.

Could people opposed to Obama become future targets?

Little Bobbie F(G)ibbs had a pretty calloused response.

 

Former Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked about a 16-year-old American boy, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, who was killed by an American drone attack, authorized by Barack Obama, callously said that he “should have (had) a far more responsible father.”

The Huffington Post reports,

A 16-year-old American boy killed in an Obama administration drone strike “should have [had] a far more responsible father,” Obama campaign senior adviser Robert Gibbs says in a new video released by the group We Are Change.

Abdulrahman al-Awlaki was the son of Anwar al-Awlaki, an al Qaeda propagandist killed by a U.S. drone a year ago. But the child was killed in a separate strike some two weeks after his father was killed. Gibbs wasn’t entirely familiar with the situation, and didn’t know that al-Awlaki’s son was killed two weeks after his father was killed, a person familiar with his thinking at the time he was interviewed told HuffPost. We Are Change bills itself as a non-partisan media organization “working to expose corruption.”

“I would suggest that you should have a far more responsible father if they are truly concerned about the well being of their children. I don’t think becoming an al Qaeda jihadist terrorist is the best way to go about doing your business,” Gibbs, the former White House press secretary, told the interviewer from We Are Change, when asked to justify “an American citizen that is being targeted without due process, without trial — and, he’s underage, he’s a minor.”

At first Gibbs was not interested in talking about Awlaki. “I’m not going to get into Anwar al-Awlaki’s son,” he said. “I know that Anwar al-Awlaki renounced his citizenship, did great harm to people in this country.”

However the reporter noted that Awlaki’s son has not renounced his citizenship and was underage. Gibbs answered in a callous fashion, “I would suggest that you should have a far more responsible father if they are truly concerned about the well being of their children. I don’t think becoming an al Qaeda jihadist terrorist is the best way to go about doing your business.”

Esquire magazine tells the story of the son claiming that he was unlike his father and pointing out the the son was not killed in the same drone strike as his father, but in a totally separate one. Tom Junod writes,

“When he was killed, on September 30, 2011, President Obama made a speech about it; a few months later, when the Obama administraton’s public-relations campaign about its embrace of what has come to be called “targeted killing” reached its climax in a front-page story in the New York Times that presented the President of the United States as the last word in deciding who lives and who dies, he was quoted as saying that the decision to put Anwar al-Awlaki on the kill list — and then to kill him — was “an easy one.” But Abdulrahman al-Awlaki wasn’t on an American kill list.”

“Nor was he a member of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninusla. Nor was he “an inspiration,” as his father styled himself, for those determined to draw American blood; nor had he gone “operational,” as American authorities said his father had, in drawing up plots against Americans and American interests. He was a boy who hadn’t seen his father in two years, since his father had gone into hiding. He was a boy who knew his father was on an American kill list and who snuck out of his family’s home in the early morning hours of September 4, 2011, to try to find him. He was a boy who was still searching for his father when his father was killed, and who, on the night he himself was killed, was saying goodbye to the second cousin with whom he’d lived while on his search, and the friends he’d made. He was a boy among boys, then; a boy among boys eating dinner by an open fire along the side of a road when an American drone came out of the sky and fired the missiles that killed them all.”

Conor Friedersdorf, at The Atlantic, suggests,

Gibbs nevertheless defends the strike, not by arguing that the kid was a threat, or that killing him was an accident, but by saying that his late father irresponsibly joined al Qaeda terrorists. Killing an American citizen without due process on that logic ought to be grounds for impeachment. Is that the real answer? Or would the Obama Administration like to clarify its reasoning? Any Congress that respected its oversight responsibilities would get to the bottom of this.

The danger is that now we have a presidential kill list, it is openly talked about without shame, and even the federal government claims it has authority to execute and assassinate anyone it claims is a terrorist, including and American citizen. Obama even appointed an assassination czar. America is quickly becoming a very dangerous place.

Watch Gibbs reaction and hear the words from his own mouth below:

Awlaki family files suit against US government over drone strikes

Leave a comment

 

This is from Fox New Politics.

I have mixed feelings on these drone strikes against Americans.

But by the same token they sided with our enemies.

They had vowed to kill Americans and attack American citizens.

So they deserved to die.

Relatives of three U.S. citizens killed in drone strikes in Yemen last year, including radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, are suing the U.S. government for targeting the terrorism suspects “without due process.”

The wrongful death lawsuit, filed Wednesday, claims that the killings of U.S. citizens al-Awlaki, his 16-year-old son Abdulrahman al-Awlaki and operative Samir Khan were unconstitutional. Khan was the publisher of the terror magazine Inspire.

The complaint, prepared by the American Civil Liberties Union and Center for Constitutional Rights, was filed against four senior national security officials: Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, CIA Director David Petraeus and senior commanders of the military’s Special Operations forces, Adm. William McRaven of the Navy and Lt. Gen. Joseph Votel of the Army.

The lawsuit says: “The U.S. practice of ‘targeted killing’ has resulted in the deaths of thousands of people, including many hundreds of civilian bystanders. While some targeted killings have been carried out in the context of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, many have taken place outside the context of armed conflict, in countries including Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan, Sudan, and the Philippines.”

“These killings rely on vague legal standards, a closed executive process, and evidence never presented to the courts. … The killings violated fundamental rights afforded to all U.S. citizens, including the right not to be deprived of life without due process of law,” the lawsuit says.

Anwar al-Awlaki, though, was considered a dangerous enemy of the United States linked to several attempted attacks and plots.

President Obama said after his death that Awlaki “took the lead in planning and directing efforts to murder innocent Americans.”

Al-Awlaki, who was born in New Mexico, and Khan, a naturalized U.S. citizen whose family lived in Charlotte, N.C., were killed Sept. 30, 2011, during a U.S. drone strike in Yemen. Al-Awlaki’s teenage son, Abdulrahman, who was born in Colorado, was killed in a separate strike on Oct. 14.
