The House of Representatives discreetly passed House Resolution 6166: The Military Commissions Act of 2006, also known as "the torture bill." 219 Republicans and 34 Democrats voted to strip basic human and legal rights from U.S. citizens.

This bill was passed September 27, 2006. More specifically, HR 6166 will effectively:

·

Give the President amnesty for committing war crimes.

·

Provide amnesty to war criminals in the military.

·

Revoke habeas corpus rights, which allows U.S. military detainees a right to appeal charges.

·

Render the Geneva Conventions null and void.

·

Allow the police to search your home without a warrant.

·

Revoke legal protection from self-incrimination.

·

Eliminate the idea of rape and sexual assault as torture.

·

Allow the government to use testimony extracted through torture.

·

Allow the government to imprison people based on secret evidence without telling them the charges against them.

·

Remove the right to cross-examine witnesses.

·

Allow the records of trials to be kept secret from the public.

·

Take away the right to a speedy trial.

·

Enable trials to begin before a thorough investigation.

·

Allow people to be put in front of a military tribunal, even if they aren’t in the military.

·

Create a secret committee appointed by Bush or Rumsfeld [at that time] that has the power to declare any person an "enemy combatant," depriving them of basic human rights, legal rights, or an appeal.

Americans do not know the full ramifications of the liberties they have lost.

The solution to these problems is that each nation-state that makes up the United States declares that it is resuming [taking back] its State’s Rights or the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution.

This will inform the Federal Government that they have become a tyranny and oppressive to the people; therefore, they no longer have jurisdiction in the states. If the Federal Government continues its oppressive tactics on its road to dictatorship, the states can meet in assembly and declare they have left the Union by enumerating the violations of the Constitution by the Federal Government.

One of the goals of those working for world government was to accumulate all power in Washington, D.C.; therefore, they would have only one battle to win instead of 48 or 50.

Jesus Christ is our REAL answer!!!
