    Gulags for U.S. citizens in final planning stages
    Bush administration and US army preparations to target American citizens and intern them in forced labor camps has vastly accelerated in the past month and commentators from all over the political spectrum are sounding the alarm bells that the round-ups may begin soon.

    Once the bane of the media's stereotypical 'tin foil hat wearing' caricatures, concentration camps in America are now serious news and no one is laughing.

    Our leaders won't suddenly round up thousands of people. First, they'll just try to indefinitely detain a few American citizens they have identified as "enemy combatants."

    Then maybe some who weren't actually "combatants", but were "suspected sympathizers."

    And later, uncooperative newspeople, or those who take pictures of bridges or whatever.

    Rarely does a nation lose freedom all at once.

    The good news is that Congress passed the Patriot Act, but with significant reduction in arbitary power granted to the executive.

    And people are starting to get concerned. Maybe the pendulum is swinging back toward American values.

    Uncooperative newspeople meaning those crazy conspiracy theorists and terrorist bloggers?

    Or people who might dare protest in front of federal buildings?

    FEMA critic's shirt gets him tangled up in ticket.

    Ridiculing the
    Federal Emergency Management Agency is high art in the Gulf Coast areas where Hurricane Katrina hit last year.


    Many parade floats in New Orleans' Mardi Gras were decorated in themes that skewered the relief agency.

    George Barisich, president of the United Commercial Fisherman's Association, has been selling anti-FEMA T-shirts since last fall, a reflection of his frustration with the federal government's response to the storm that left him homeless and unemployed.

    But on Feb. 1, when he handed a shirt to a fellow Katrina victim as he was picking up canned goods at a charity's relief tent, Barisich found himself in trouble with the government.

    <snip>

    The government is sticking to its guns. "If we ignored this violation, you could have potentially 20 to 30 people standing out in front of the (FEMA) center, obstructing things," says Dean Boyd, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spokesman. "We've got a duty and a job under the law."

    And right on time here comes Bush to the rescue.

    SEC. 3. And be it further enacted and declared, That if any person shall be prosecuted under this act, for the writing or publishing any libel aforesaid, it shall be lawful for the defendant, upon the trial of the cause, to give in evidence in his defence, the truth of the matter contained in Republication charged as a libel. And the jury who shall try the cause, shall have a right to determine the law and the fact, under the direction of the court, as in other cases.

    SEC. 4. And be it further enacted, That this act shall continue and be in force until the third day of March, one thousand eight hundred and one, and no longer: Provided, that the expiration of the act shall not prevent or defeat a prosecution and punishment of any offence against the law, during the time it shall be in force.

And the President of the United States shall be, and he is hereby authorized, in any event, as aforesaid, by his proclamation thereof, or other public act, to direct the conduct to be observed, on the part of the United States, towards the aliens who shall become liable, as aforesaid; the manner and degree of the restraint to which they shall be subject, and in what cases, and upon what security their residence shall be permitted, and to provide for the removal of those, who, not being permitted to reside within the United States, shall refuse or neglect to depart therefrom; and to establish any other regulations which shall be found necessary in the premises and for the public safety: Provided, that aliens resident within the United States, who shall become liable as enemies, in the manner aforesaid, and who shall not be chargeable with actual hostility, or other crime against the public safety, shall be allowed, for the recovery, disposal, and removal of their goods and effects, and for their departure, the full time which is, or shall be stipulated by any treaty, where any shall have been between the United States, and the hostile nation or government, of which they shall be natives, citizens, denizens or subjects: and where no such treaty shall have existed, the President of the United States may ascertain and declare such reasonable time as may be consistent with the public safety, and according to the dictates of humanity and national hospitality.

    Poncho, if you're going to be raising an alarm over this, I trust you are going to remember and condemn the relocation and internment of American citizens of Japanese descent during World War 2. If you are not prepared to condemn that rape of the Constitution, then I will disregard your further comments on the matter at hand.

    Yes I am prepared to condemn it Squire. I'm not raising the alarm btw, that was done by others long before I got to BB. The Alarm was first sounded by the likes of George Washington Samuel Adams and Thomas Jefferson I believe. You can disregard my comments I have no problem with that and you may even disregard their warnings at your own peril. I have no problem with that either. It is a free country country after all, till the next Reichstag fire anyway.

    Federal, yes. State, depends on whether or not the Feds are admitting where they stashed you. Local, of course not!

    Hey everyone,

    You know how the anti-war is always accusing the Bush administration of being fear mongers? Just remember that while you read this thread where they try to scare you out of war and into hating the government. In reality, the anti-war crowd are the biggest fear mongers out there. While Bush uses words like liberation, justice, and we are winning and we must stand firm, the true fear mongers use words like quagmire, draft, internment camps, we cannot win. They are the most negative people alive. Do not be scared by the fear mongers. We should continue to stand firm and stay the course. Don't allow the message of the terrorists being puppeted by the anti-war crowd in America and Europe scare us out of completing the job and doing the right thing.

    I now return you to your regularly scheduled fear mongering brought to you by the anti-Bush, anti-American, anti-war crowd.

    Joseph Botwinick

    It's possible to fight a war without violating the Constititution.

    The war is just the excuse.

    The war isn't a big thing right now. It's just dragging on, with "acceptable casualties", until Bush is out of office and someone else puts an end to it. Then the Iraqis will do what they want to do with their country, by the means they chose to do it.

    Orwell was right. What they seek is not change, but power.

    This is ridiculous. All we've got is what appears to be a far-left link posting pictures that appear to be from Gitmo, with no real evidence offered.

    Except Bush's claim that he can "disappear" any American citizen he decides is helping terrorists.

    In case you don't know, that's been upheld by a lower court:

    A federal appeals court yesterday backed the president's power to indefinitely detain a U.S. citizen captured on U.S. soil without any criminal charges, holding that such authority is vital during wartime to protect the nation from terrorist attacks.
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/09/09/AR2005090900772.html

    And for the duration of the "war" (wars no longer have to be declared, presidents can just order one) you can sit in a cell with all your rights suspended.

    I guess that means you don't have any more "evidence" than BibleSender did about these "forced labor" camps, right?

    As to Padilla, you might want to actually check the website you linked to. There's actually been a new development or two, such as the government's request to have him moved to civilian detention and an indictment. As long as you're protecting terrorists from Big Brother, you might want to see what Big Brother is doing with them.

    I do also add a thanks for the link. Lots of good references.

    ==If I recall my presidential history correctly other presidents have done this in times of war (Abraham Lincoln) and in times of crisis (Ulysses S Grant). There may have been other cases as well. However the point is that Bush has not done what other presidents have not already done (and this court has backed that up). The government should have the ability to protect it's citizens during times of war and national crisis. Certainly there should be over-site and controls to make sure that there are no (or few) abuses. At this time I don't believe that Bush has done anything beyond what he is allowed to do (in this regard). Maybe some things he has done are not politically smart (I HATE politics) but I don't think he has done anything legally wrong.
