Discussion of the National Defense Authorization Act


Not generally a fan of Alex Jones and InfoWars, but I find this discussion of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) between Jones and Stewart Rhodes to be insightful and valid.

  1. I’ll never forget when DHS labeled Returning vets the greatest threat to national security, we were literally returning home when it came out.This whole thing seems so insidious. Alex Jones spoke on “the police and military are being taught this,” regarding internal terrorists and the like. But there’s a problem, the police and military are citizens just like everyone else. Most in the military doesn’t buy this crap, or else why are we the biggest supporters of Ron Paul? The motivation is simple, seed feelings of distrust between the populace and the authorities. Remove the respect, trust, and admiration the people typically hold for our military (consistenly the most trusted profession in our nation). Do this and you severe the critical link which is keeping the next step of the globalist at bay. Purely hypothetically, if there was an attempt to overtly change the American institution as it stands, what large and pretty powerful entity stands in their way? Look at the media’s demonization of the military “coup” in Honduras. The president essentially tried to dissolve the legislative branch and assume ultimate control (generally, as far as I remember), the military stepped, yet our media made them to be something it wasn’t.

      Outstanding point, Dan. Military-civil relations are a key target for the globalists who seek to transform America, and more precisely, its citizenry into milk cows.

  2. Here’s an interesting tid-bit for you. Shortly after returning from my second deployment, I popped up on the No-Fly List. I was informed there was no responsibility on the part of DHS to explain. To their “defense,” I will maintain I did and still to this day talk to Iraqis who I befriended there. But I hardly think that qualifies me for suspicion!
