And so it begins...

Obama proposes "preventive detention" of terror suspects

They said Mr. Obama told them he was thinking about “the long game” — how to establish a legal system that would endure for future presidents. He raised the issue of preventive detention himself, but made clear that he had not made a decision on it. Several senior White House officials did not respond to requests for comment on the outsiders’ accounts.

This is what makes expansion of AmeriCorps as well as the idea that they would need "arrest powers" so atrocious. There are numerous bills before the Senate and House that would grant the AG broad powers for defining both "dangerous weapons" and "potential terrorist". If even one of those bills passes, and if "preventive detention" becomes both legal and binding, then the United States Constitution is no longer valid in today's world. They will have destroyed the Constitution without ever bothering to debate writing a new one.

The President of the United States has now declared war on the People of the United States. The next step will be getting this idea made into law. If it does, no one will be safe from arbitrary arrest and confinement. No one at all.

And California has begun confiscating weapons from "criminals and other people who should not have them."

You can be sure the world has gone to hell when the conspiracy nuts are the only people who know what's really going on!
