Uncle Sam wants to lock you up without trial indefinitely!

The U.S. Senate recently passed a bi-partisan bill that would allow U.S. citizens to be apprehended and lock up without trial indefinitely. Presidential hopeful Rep. Ron Paul (R) and his son Sen. Rand Paul (R) have strongly oppossed the bill saying “We are talking about people who are merely suspected of a crime, and we are talking about American citizens. If these provisions pass, we could see American citizens being sent to Guantánamo Bay.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D) of California said "We are not a nation that locks up its citizens without charge, prosecution, and conviction" as she oppossed the bill during Senate debate. President Obama said he might veto the legislation which is contained in The National Defense Authorization Act.

Joining me tonight is Timothy Gatto a blogger and author the book From Complicity To Contempt and who recently wrote about bill S 1867 which he says "kills the Bill of Rights and declares war on the American people".

Timothy writes, "the most despicable and damaging piece of legislation ever passed was passed in the Senate late last night without hardly a whimper in the morning from the American mainstream press. Under the cover of darkness, the United States Senate virtually declared war on the people of this nation by passing the darkest piece of legislation ever passed in America.

Barack Obama is no Malcolm X or Martin Luther King Jr.

Today the unemployment rate dropped below 9% and the media is already crediting Obama and saying it will help his re-election efforts in 2012. Despite the Black unemployment rate which continues to be high and always has been and will be in the foreseeable future because of policies continued by the nation's first Black President that negatively impact Black people, despite high incarceration rates, despite higher than average foreclosure rates, most Black people will not hesitate to vote for Obama again without ever looking at another possible candidate. Some respected people in the anti-white supremacy community believe that Obama can do nothing to stop these polices or make life better for black people because white people won't let him and if he did he would be killed or his family would be harmed. If true, does that make Obama a coward?
