I'll tell you who needs to shut up: Sen. Lindsey Graham on the #NDAA, Indefinite Detention of American Citizens

US Senator Lindsey Graham is sadistic. The people of his state, South Carolina, should be ashamed to have voted him into office.

Text continues below the video. Watch it. Then read the rest.

An American citizen always gets to see his or her lawyer because governments, prosecutors, etc., can and very often have gotten things wrong and/or simply abused their positions.

You're not going to tell American citizens to shut up and then ask them why they joined al Qaeda because it remains to be determined whether or not you have grounds (reasonable suspicion and probable cause) to even be questioning them, let alone holding them against their wills.

Lindsey Graham is a Tory in the worst sense of the term.

Now, I happen to be a convert to Christianity and knew when I made that move that I would be adopting pacifism. That though does not mean I'm indifferent to how Lindsey Graham and the other fascists plan on abusing Americans.

These fascists are pushing, pushing, pushing. There are people who are on the verge of wrath against them simply over the principle of the things. Those people would be fine where it not for the likes of the effete Lindsey Graham trampling all over everything that Americans are taught from birth to fight to the death defending.

These fascists, these neocons, these Zionists, are being so chest thumping that they are driving the left and libertarians into each others arms.

I really see trouble up ahead. The rich are getting richer, the banksters have been let off the hook (unrepentant), food is being destroyed with GMO's, the people are being herded and brutalized like cattle (without dignity), law-enforcement is becoming more and more thuggish and less and less like the old cop on the beat who said hello and tipped his hat.

There are plenty of differences between the anarchist left and the anarcho-capitalists, but they'll overcome those differences if it comes down to a fight for survival against the elitists like Lindsey Graham and John McCain and, yes, even the President of the United States, Barack Obama.

Barack Obama is being a complete moron on this NDAA issue. It's the worse move of his Presidency so far, and that's saying a great deal because he's made so many huge mistakes.

He's misjudging the people. He's listening to people who aren't reading the people correctly.

I hate violence and want everyone to stop, including Barack Obama; but if they don't, all Hell will end up breaking loose.

Frankly, I think things are falling apart faster than anyone is working to make repairs.

Right now, I sense people planning who weren't doing it just a couple of days ago. I'm not talking about people with I.Q.'s of 90 but rather genius level -- people who aren't going to expose themselves or be able to be found out and who aren't all in the United States.

This NDAA has caused them to start because they believe the US is becoming more and more dangerous for the world. They're joining others who have had plans all along.

Barack Obama, you need to repent of this decision not to veto the legislation. You've already wiped out what you thought you were accomplishing channeling Teddy Roosevelt. The young people are beginning to really hate you, the way they hated Johnson and then Nixon.

Not since Nixon have I sense the nation so close to violent revolution. I thought things were bad under George W. Bush, but I was right that they'd actually get worse under you. I believe we are actually closer to major violence than even during Nixon.

Right now, I count you as a terrible leader. I count you a liar, a fraud. You lie about sex. You lie about Iran. You lie about human rights. You lie about the environment. You lie about the economy. I'm far from perfect, but you are really bad for the people; and I'd be a selfish coward not to say it.

May God have mercy on your soul because Satan sure won't.


The following should appear at the end of every post:

According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":

Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.

Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.

Political Campaign Intervention

Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.

Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.

Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:

  • Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
  • Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
  • Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
  • Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
  • Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office

Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:

  • The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
  • Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
  • We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
  • When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
  • It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
  • We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
  • We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
  • When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
  • We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
  • It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
