Democratic Senators’ Proposal Targets Facebook Co-Founder Ed Saverin

http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com

Mr. Saverin, a Brazilian-born immigrant to the United States, now lives in Singapore, which has no capital gains tax. He renounced his United States citizenship in September. With that act of antipatriotism, Mr. Saverin stands to avoid at least $67 million in United States taxes.

“Mr. Saverin has decided to ‘defriend’ the United States of America just to avoid paying his taxes. We aren’t going to let him get away with it so easily,” Mr. Schumer said. “It’s infuriating to see someone sell out the country that welcomed him and kept him safe, educated him and helped him become a billionaire.”

http://www.freepatriot-press.com

Attorney General Eric Holder recently gave a speech in which he said the U.S. military can execute American citizens without trial, because “’[d]ue process’ and ‘judicial process’ are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security.” Holder added, “[t]he Constitution guarantees due process, not judicial process.”

Congress to Vote Next Week on EXPLICITLY Creating a Police State

http://www.zerohedge.com

The Senate is gearing up for a vote on Monday or Tuesday that goes to the very heart of who we are as Americans. The Senate will be voting on a bill that will direct American military resources not at an enemy shooting at our military in a war zone, but at American citizens and other civilians far from any battlefield — even people in the United States itself.

The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world.

New Authorization for Worldwide War Without End?

http://www.aclu.org

The proposed legislation would allow a president to use military force wherever terrorism suspects are present in the world, regardless of whether there has been any harm to U.S. citizens, or any attack on the United States, or any imminent threat of an attack. The legislation is broad enough to permit a president to use military force within the United States and against American citizens.

'Speech or debate' clause invoked in investigations of House members

http://www.washingtonpost.com

Are you tired of politicians not being subject to the same rules as we are? The executive branch can't use wiretapping on congressman, despite the fact that they can use the patriot act on the rest of us. Now, the patriot act is bad, but shouldn't politicians be subject to the same rules as the rest of us?
