QUOTES FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY


"It is not the function of our government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error" -- United States Supreme Court decision in American Communications Association v. Douds

PATRIOT CONNECTORS MARCH 12th MEETING

Pastor Sean Moon will address the Patriot Connectors, (a civic educational forum) that will meet on March 12th to discuss the National Defense Authorization Act. The meeting will be held as usual at the Wallenpaupack High School Library. Social Hour starts at 6:30 with the meeting taking place at 7:00, starting with the Pledge of Allegiance. If there is inclement weather and the school is closed, there will be no Patriot Connector meeting.

Pastor Moon’s parents fled North Korea as refuges, eventually coming to the US in the 70’s. The Pastor is very concerned with any act of the government that would jeopardize the freedoms and liberties of its citizens.  Pastor Moon says, “When power becomes centralized it loses all morality; America is not immune to this corruption.  

“The National Defense Authorization Act” (NDAA) was first passed by Congress in 1962 and is reinstated every year. The bill was passed to fund the military; but in 2012 Congress, through sections (1021 and 1022) of the NDAA it expanded the 2001 “Authorization for Use of Military Force” (AUMF) to cover all the citizens of the USA. A NDAA that relies on detention authority based on the AUMF could be used by the government to bolster its claim on indefinite detention even when any actual U.S. combat war is not going on. Americans could one day find themselves branded a “belligerent” and thus subject to the complete confiscation of their constitutional civil liberties. When read in conjunction with the provision of the AUMF that left the “War on Terror” open-ended and the prior NDAAs’ classification of the United States as a battleground this could become a powerful combination that can take the rights and liberties of American citizens.

Some of the things that will be discussed: do we have a “War on Terror”; how is a belligerent act defined; is saying something against the federal government under the protection of the First Amendment a belligerent act; and does the NDAA define the whole of the US as a battlefield and allow the US Military to arrest American Citizens without charge or trial?
