Here we go..this means Christians, Patriots, or Anyone can be kidnapped out of their homes at gunpoint in the middle of the night with no arrest warrant and be hauled off to jail, prison, or Guatanomo, Cuba for that matter. You will not be allowed a phone call to a lawyer or your family. And your family will not be told where you are or when you will be released, IF YOU EVER GET RELEASED. This legislation null and voids our Bill of Rights in the Constitution.

The Secret Patriot Act II Destroys What Is Left of American Liberty
H.R. 2417, INTELLIGENCE AUTHORIZATION AGREEMENT OF 2004
Whitehouse Statement on HR 2417 (December 13, 2003)
HR 2417 was cleared by the Congress on November 21, 2003
Comments of Ron Paul, Congressman for Texas on HR 2417 :
It appears we are witnessing a stealth enactment of the enormously
unpopular "Patriot II" legislation that was first leaked several months ago.
Perhaps the national outcry when a draft of the Patriot II act
was leaked has led its supporters to enact it one piece at a time in
secret. Whatever the case, this is outrageous and unacceptable. I urge
each of my colleagues to join me in rejecting this bill and its
incredibly dangerous expansion of Federal police powers.
Congressman Ron Paul (R-Tex) told the Washington Times that no member of Congress was allowed to read the first Patriot Act that was passed by the House on October 27, 2001. The first Patriot Act was universally decried by civil libertarians and Constitutional scholars from across the political spectrum. William Safire, while writing for the New York Times, described the first Patriot Act's powers by saying that President Bush was seizing dictatorial control.
7, 2003 the Center
for Public Integrity, a non-partisan public interest think-tank in DC,
revealed the full text of the Domestic Security Enhancement Act of 2003. The
classified document had been leaked to them by an unnamed source inside the
Federal government. The document consisted of a 33-page section by section
analysis of the accompanying 87-page bill.
*Note: On February 10, 2003 I discovered that not only was there a house version that had been covertly brought to Hastert, but that many provisions of the now public Patriot Act II had already been introduced as pork barrel riders on Senate Bill S. 22. Dozens of subsections and even the titles of the subsections are identical to those in the House version. This is very important because it catches the Justice Department in a bald-faced lie. The Justice Department claimed that the secret legislation brought into the House was only for study, and that at this time there was no intention to try and pass it. Now upon reading S. 22, it is clear that the leadership of the Senate is fully aware of the Patriot Act II, and have passed these riders out of their committees into the full bill. I spent two hours scanning through S. 22 and, let me tell you, it is a nightmare for anyone who loves liberty. It even contains the Our Lady of Peace Act that registers all gun owners. It bans the private sale of all firearms, creates a Federal ballistics database, and much more.
There are other bills in the Senate that grant the Federal government sweeping powers. S.45 states in section one that the office for State and local government coordination for Homeland Security will no longer just oversee, but that now local cities critical functions will be headed by a Federal director. On Tuesday, February 11th, we noted a story in The Times-Picayune with the headline: Nagin announces major overhaul of City Hall --New Homeland Security office to oversee cops, firemen, emergency agency. The Federal power-grab taking place is widespread and all Americans must mobilize to resist it.
Another interesting bill is S. 16. S. 16 is a smorgasbord of Federal funding and control over local police departments and needs to be examined closely.
S. 89, The Universal National Service Act of 2003 is the hallmark of an authoritarian society. The description of the bill is, "To provide for the common defense by requiring that all young persons in the United States, including women, perform a period of military service of civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, and for other purposes." We have looked at some of the programs that the Federal government has already been setting up for service here in the "homeland" and they include East German-style tattletale squads of every type, which are just basically a super TIPS program. The nightmare goes on and on. Check it out for yourself.
Act II bill itself is stamped "Confidential -Not for Distribution." Upon
reading the analysis and bill, I was stunned by the scientifically crafted
tyranny contained in the legislation. The Justice Department Office of
Legislative Affairs admits that they had indeed covertly transmitted a copy
of the legislation to Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, (R-Il) and the
Vice President of the United States, Dick Cheney as well as the executive
heads of federal law enforcement agencies.
It is important to note that no member of Congress was allowed to see the first Patriot Act before its passage, and that no debate was tolerate by the House and Senate leadership. The intentions of the White House and Speaker Hastert concerning Patriot Act II appear to be a carbon copy replay of the events that led to the unprecedented passage of the first Patriot Act.
There are two
glaring areas that need to be looked at concerning this new legislation:
secretive tactics being used by the White House and Speaker Hastert to keep
even the existence of this legislation secret would be more at home in
Communist China than in the United States. The fact that Dick Cheney
publicly managed the steamroller passage of the first Patriot Act, insuring
that no one was allowed to read it and publicly threatening members of
Congress that if they didn’t vote in favor of it that they would be blamed
for the next terrorist attack, is by the White House’s own definition
terrorism. The move to clandestinely craft and then bully passage of any
legislation by the Executive Branch is clearly an impeachable offence.
2. The second
Patriot Act is a mirror image of powers that Julius Caesar and Adolf Hitler
gave themselves. Whereas the First Patriot Act only gutted the First, Third,
Fourth and Fifth Amendments, and seriously damaged the Seventh and the
Tenth, the Second Patriot Act reorganizes the entire Federal government as
well as many areas of state government under the dictatorial control of the
Justice Department, the Office of Homeland Security and the FEMA NORTHCOM
military command. The Domestic Security Enhancement Act 2003, also known as
the Second Patriot Act is by its very structure the definition of
all Americans to study the new Patriot Act and to compare it to the
Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence. Ninety percent
of the act has nothing to do with terrorism and is instead a giant Federal
power-grab with tentacles reaching into every facet of our society. It
strips American citizens of all of their rights and grants the government
and its private agents total immunity.
Here is a
quick thumbnail sketch of just some of the draconian measures encapsulated
within this tyrannical legislation:
SECTION 501 (Expatriation of
Terrorists) expands the Bush administration’s “enemy combatant” definition
to all American citizens who “may” have violated any provision of Section
802 of the first Patriot Act. (Section 802 is the new definition of domestic
terrorism, and the definition is “any action that endangers human life that
is a violation of any Federal or State law.”) Section 501 of the second
Patriot Act directly connects to Section 125 of the same act. The Justice
Department boldly claims that the incredibly broad Section 802 of the First
USA Patriot Act isn’t broad enough and that a new, unlimited definition of
terrorism is needed.
501 a US citizen engaging in lawful activities can be grabbed off the street
and thrown into a van never to be seen again. The Justice Department states
that they can do this because the person “had inferred from conduct” that
they were not a US citizen. Remember Section 802 of the First USA Patriot
Act states that any violation of Federal or State law can result in the
“enemy combatant” terrorist designation.
SECTION 201 of the second Patriot Act
makes it a criminal act for any member of the government or any citizen to
release any information concerning the incarceration or whereabouts of
detainees. It also states that law enforcement does not even have to tell
the press who they have arrested and they never have to release the names.
SECTION 301 and 306 (Terrorist
Identification Database) set up a national database of “suspected
terrorists” and radically expand the database to include anyone associated
with suspected terrorist groups and anyone involved in crimes or having
supported any group designated as “terrorist.” These sections also set up a
national DNA database for anyone on probation or who has been on probation
for any crime, and orders State governments to collect the DNA for the
SECTION 312 gives immunity to law enforcement engaging in spying operations against the American people and would place substantial restrictions on court injunctions against Federal violations of civil rights across the board.
SECTION 101 will designate individual
terrorists as foreign powers and again strip them of all rights under the
“enemy combatant” designation.
SECTION 102 states clearly that any
information gathering, regardless of whether or not those activities are
illegal, can be considered to be clandestine intelligence activities for a
SECTION 103 allows the Federal
government to use wartime martial law powers domestically and
internationally without Congress declaring that a state of war exists.
SECTION 106 is bone-chilling in its
straightforwardness. It states that broad general warrants by the secret
FSIA court (a panel of secret judges set up in a star chamber system that
convenes in an undisclosed location) granted under the first Patriot Act are
not good enough. It states that government agents must be given immunity for
carrying out searches with no prior court approval. This section throws out
the entire Fourth Amendment against unreasonable searches and seizures.
SECTION 109 allows secret star
chamber courts to issue contemp charges against any i ndividual or
corporation who refuses to incriminate themselves or others. This sections annihilate the last vestiges of the Fifth Amendment.
SECTION 110 restates that key police
state clauses in the first Patriot Act were not sunsetted and removes the
five year sunset clause from other subsections of the first Patriot Act.
After all, the media has told us: “this is the New America. Get used to it.
This is forever.”
SECTION 111 expands the definition of
the “enemy combatant” designation.
SECTION 122 restates the government’s
newly announced power of “surveillance without a court order.”
SECTION 123 restates that the
government no longer needs warrants and that the investigations can be a
giant dragnet-style sweep described in press reports about the Total
Information Awareness Network. One passage reads, “thus the focus of
domestic surveillance may be less precise than that directed against more
conventional types of crime.”
*Note: Over and
over again, in subsection after subsection, the second Patriot Act states
that its new Soviet-type powers will be used to fight international
terrorism, domestic terrorism and other types of crimes. Of course the
government has already announced in Section 802 of the first USA Patriot act
that any crime is considered domestic terrorism.
SECTION 126 grants the government the right to mine the entire spectrum of public and private sector information from bank records to educational and medical records. This is the enacting law to allow ECHELON and the Total Information Awareness Network to totally break down any and all walls of privacy.
states that they must look at everything to “determine” if individuals or
groups might have a connection to terrorist groups. As you can now see, you
are guilty until proven innocent.
SECTION 127 allows the government to
takeover coroners’ and medical examiners’ operations whenever they see fit.
See how this is like Bill Clinton’s special medical examiner he had in
Arkansas that ruled that people had committed suicide when their arms and
legs had been cut off.
SECTION 128 allows the Federal
government to place gag orders on Federal and State Grand Juries and to take
over the proceedings. It also disallows individuals or organizations to even
try to quash a Federal subpoena. So now defending yourself will be a
SECTION 129 destroys any remaining
whistleblower protection for Federal agents.
SECTION 202 allows corporations to
keep secret their activities with toxic biological, chemical or radiological
SECTION 205 allows top Federal
officials to keep all their financial dealings secret, and anyone
investigating them can be considered a terrorist. This should be very useful
for Dick Cheney to stop anyone investigating Haliburton.
SECTION 303 sets up national DNA
database of suspected terrorists. The database will also be used to “stop
other unlawful activities.” It will share the information with state, local
and foreign agencies for the same purposes.
SECTION 311 federalizes your local
police department in the area of information sharing.
SECTION 313 provides liability
protection for businesses, especially big businesses that spy on their
customers for Homeland Security, violating their privacy agreements. It goes
on to say that these are all preventative measures – has anyone seen
Minority Report? This is the access hub for the Total Information Awareness
SECTION 321 authorizes foreign
governments to spy on the American people and to share information with
SECTION 322 removes Congress from the
extradition process and allows officers of the Homeland Security complex to
extradite American citizens anywhere they wish. It also allows Homeland
Security to secretly take individuals out of foreign countries.
SECTION 402 is titled “Providing
Material Support to Terrorism.” The section reads that there is no
requirement to show that the individual even had the intent to aid
SECTION 403 expands the definition of
weapons of mass destruction to include any activity that affects interstate
or foreign commerce.
SECTION 404 makes it a crime for a
terrorist or “other criminals” to use encryption in the commission of a
SECTION 408 creates “lifetime parole”
(basically, slavery) for a whole host of crimes.
SECTION 410 creates no statute of
limitations for anyone that engages in terrorist actions or supports
terrorists. Remember: any crime is now considered terrorism under the first
SECTION 411 expands crimes that are
punishable by death. Again, they point to Section 802 of the first Patriot
Act and state that any terrorist act or support of terrorist act can result
in the death penalty.
SECTION 421 increases penalties for
terrorist financing. This section states that any type of financial activity
connected to terrorism will result to time in prison and $10-50,000 fines
SECTIONS 427 sets up asset forfeiture
provisions for anyone engaging in terrorist activities.
There are many
other sections that I did not cover in the interest of time. The American
people were shocked by the despotic nature of the first Patriot Act. The
second Patriot Act dwarfs all police state legislation in modern world
governments allow their citizens lots of wonderful rights on paper, while
carrying out their jackbooted oppression covertly. From snatch and grab
operations to warantless searches, Patriot Act II is an Adolf Hitler wish
understand why President Bush, Dick Cheney and Dennis Hastert want to keep
this legislation secret not just from Congress, but the American people as
well. Bill Allison, Managing Editor of the Center for Public Integrity, the
group that broke this story, stated on my radio show that it was obvious
that they were just waiting for another terrorist attack to
opportunistically get this new bill through. He then shocked me with an
insightful comment about how the Federal government was crafting this so
that they could go after the American people in general. He also agreed that
the FBI has been quietly demonizing patriots and Christians and “those who
carry around pocket Constitutions.”
I have produced
two documentary films and written a book about what really happened on
September 11th. The bottom line is this: the military-industrial
complex carried the attacks out as a pretext for control. Anyone who doubts
this just hasn’t looked at the mountains of hard evidence.
Of course, the
current group of white collar criminals in the White House might not care
that we’re finding out the details of their next phase. Because, after all,
when smallpox gets released, or more buildings start blowing up, the
President can stand up there at his lectern suppressing a smirk, squeeze out
a tear or two, and tell us that “See I was right. I had to take away your
rights to keep you safe. And now it’s your fault that all of these children
are dead.” From that point on, anyone who criticizes tyranny will be shouted
down by the paid talking head government mouthpieces in the mainstream
You have to admit, it’s a beautiful script. Unfortunately, it’s being played out in the real world. If we don’t get the word out that government is using terror to control our lives while doing nothing to stop the terrorists, we will deserve what we get - tyranny. But our children won’t deserve it.

While Saddam was Captured: Stealth enactment of the "Patriot II"
legislation Various Sources
While CNN and other media outlets are rejoicing because of the capture
of Saddam Hussein, Bush again introduced new legislation last Saturday
which increased the federal powers to investigate and reduces the
privacy rights of American citizens :
Bush signs bill extending FBI powers
WASHINGTON -- President Bush has signed legislation making it easier for
FBI agents investigating terrorism to demand financial records from
casinos, car dealerships, and other businesses.
The changes were included in a bill authorizing 2004 intelligence
Most of the details of the bill are secret, including the total cost of
the programs, which are estimated to be about $40 billion. That would be
slightly more than Bush had requested.
Bush signed the bill Saturday, the White House announced.
The bill expands the number of businesses from which the FBI and other
US authorities conducting intelligence work can demand financial records
without seeking court approval.
Under current law, "national security letters" can be issued to
traditional financial institutions, such as banks and credit unions, to
require them to turn over information. The bill expands the definition
of financial institution to include other businesses that deal with
large amounts of cash.
Supporters of the change say it will help authorities identify money
laundering and other activities that fund terrorism. But some lawmakers
and civil liberties advocates say the change does not provide enough
safeguards to ensure that authorities will not violate the privacy of
In other provisions, the bill:
Requires the CIA director to prepare a report as soon as possible on
what intelligence agencies have learned from their experiences in Iraq.
Creates a Treasury Department office to work with intelligence agencies
on fighting terrorist financing.
Creates pilot programs to share raw data between agencies.
Authorizes agencies to continue research on computerized terrorism
surveillance suspended by the Pentagon.
