power freaks with a taste for irony must delight in this xmas fast one of the prez
here is barry white hat emperor at work :
....after saying no never not citizen detention no never ...he signs
and so he is now saying de facto yes to citizen detention but not without saying no too
dead on fact :
the ohbumster is extending further the powers of our elected dictator (unitary potus)
and i guess just to taunt us with his serpentine split tongue
as father notes below
barry simultaneously breaks another solemn libertarian democrat type promise
he issues in conjunction with the signing a ' signing statement yes 'that most satanic tool
of white house unitarianism... that play thing of autocrat chaneyites and neocons
a signing statement in which he pledges NOT to use this new authority against us citizens
well not exactly pledges but suggests errr...a strong dispositional intention
what's it called when a snake pulls that sorta shit ???
is it " the ouroboros trick "???
its all concisely presented by a mr turley at the above link
mr T sez in part :
The gist of Obama signing statement : he "... really does not want to detain citizens indefinitely."
really does not want to detain us ....indefinitely ...eh ??? ... really really doesn't ?? i wonder
errrr besides going ahead and signing the fucker .. what else makes me tend to think maybe its possibly gonna turn out ...otherwise ...?
well stuff like this :
".... The White House is saying that changes to the law made it unnecessary to veto the legislation....there is an exception for citizens"
when its a dirty lie ....you know the gag " see fellow amerikans the final draft the draft our jeffersonian prz signed its not really saying what its saying .....not... really .. what it is now saying is ..something better then what it is saying because...well elsewhere it sez so :...see ???
seems ".. ...after key amendments protecting citizens were defeated.... "
a neat new provision was dropped in that
according to the turley man :
." .. states that nothing in the (rest of the ) provisions could be construed to alter Americans’ legal rights."
that is to say :
.".... The exemption for American citizens from the mandatory detention requirement (section 1032) is in the prior section, 1031.. which offers no exemption for American citizens from the authorization to use the military to indefinitely detain people without charge or trial. "
get it ??..no ??...you're not supposed to idiot
see its a nice self contradiction
lawyers drafting bills love inserting these conflicting tid bits
written up this way the exemption is both here... now and still not here ...err there ahh when
in the course of human events it ought not be there or visa versa ....
as the shysters like to say
' if yer a free range judge finding a great big fat black letter self contradiction is better by far then mere ambiguity"
after all self contradiction is the dirty rotten filthy little loop that forms the hole
thru which "discretionary " implementation
can ride like the very huns of yore
