Wesley Clark calls for prisoner of war camps for ‘radicalized Americans’

14

If these people are radicalized and they don’t support the United States and they are disloyal to the United States as a matter of principle, fine. It’s their right and it’s our right and obligation to segregate them from the normal community for the duration of the conflict.”

That was retired 4-star general Wesley Clark on CNN, a one-time Democrat candidate for President of the United States, calling for World War II-style internment camps for radicalized Americans, including domestic Islamic terrorists.japanese concentration camp notice

Step back from the recent tragedy of Chattanooga, Tenn., where Islamist Mohammad Abdulazeez murdered five U.S. service personnel, including 4 Marines, on two military installations. Or from the Charleston, S.C. church massacre by racist Dylann Roof that left nine people dead.

Forget about the World War II internment of Japanese Americans who never committed any crime. Just because it’s been done before does not justify the practice.

Here, Clark is encouraging the government to “identify the people who are most likely to be radicalized,” and then make them “prisoners of war.”

Not to bring them up on charges of planning attacks. Or even to charge them with any crime at all. Simply because, as a matter of ideological or religious perspective, they do not like America, so says the government.

Just one problem. The Fifth Amendment specifically protects Americans from being imprisoned without just cause: “No person shall be… deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law.” In other words, a crime has to be committed.

Without it, there is no constitutional basis for holding somebody indefinitely, as there is no wartime exception for the Bill of Rights. Just being radicalized or racist is not nearly enough.

Clark’s call therefore should send chills down the spines of anyone who is even considering taking up the Countering Violent Extremism Act of 2015 in Congress. It is legislation by Rep. Mike McCaul (R-Texas) that would create a new $40 million government agency within the Department of Homeland Security: the Office for Countering Violent Extremism. It would be tasked with identifying supposed extremists in our midst.

But what sort of extremists? Will this new office even allow the mention of Islamic jihadists as a source of violent extremism particularly given the President’s refusal to even use the term in describing recent terrorist attacks?

More likely, the new DHS agency would simply keep pointing their fingers at returning veterans and conservative groups who support the Constitution, as the department has done with numerous intelligence assessments, including a 2015 assessment on right-wing extremists.

In 2009, the DHS issued a memo on supposed right-wing extremism that defined the ideology as “groups, movements, and adherents that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority” and “groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.” It even suggested veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan might be recruited by terrorists.

An Americans for Limited Government (ALG) Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request into the memo at the time revealed several sources had been used to develop the intelligence assessment. Many were news stories and some even were outlandish websites. But also included was the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center as an intelligence source.

Then we should also consider this is the same administration and the same political party that used the IRS and Justice Department to target individuals for potential prosecution due to political activity. That went after national security journalists’ phone records. That sicked prosecutors on conservative activists in Wisconsin who fought against Scott Walker’s recall.

This is what happens when law enforcement and military use ideological and political templates for targeting supposed enemies of the state. The findings will often be erroneous, and in the meantime, will do nothing to identify real threats to the homeland.

Anyone who thinks that giving the Obama Administration millions to fund a program to target people who they perceive as threats is a good idea simply has not been paying attention to who the Obama Administration classifies as threats.

    Southern poverty law center and intelligence shouldn’t be used in the same sentence.

  • Lizard

    • Dudley DoRight.

      Muslim children don’t have sand boxes because cats keep covering them up.

    Clark should look for the radical enemies of USA in the White House!!

    Obama is a racist Muslim jihadist and he’s in our house, i.e., The White House. When Obama speaks, he does so for his fellow Muslim Brotherhood & not America. Get out of our house Obama! Out damn spot, OUT !!

    NO amnesty for criminal foreigners! ARREST ALL illegal aliens STARTING with Barack H. Obama II aka Barry Soetoro!

    WAKE UP Americans! Obama is NOT the POTUS, Not even eligible, Not American! The Father of the Constitution, James Madison, warned: “If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.” That is where we are now, today, in USA, under attack from within by Barack H. Obama, et al who have infiltrated all of our republican institutions of government, making WAR against Citizens of USA and our Constitution.

    WAKE UP Americans! Obama is NOT the POTUS, Not even eligible, Not American! So PLEASE stop referring to Barack H. Obama II aka Barry Soetoro as “The President”.

    Americans have no lawful contract of any kind with the illegal alien criminal Barack H. Obama II aka Barry Soetoro who is not even eligible for POTUS, because FRAUD vitiates the most solemn contracts, documents, elections, and even judgments.

    The elections of Obama in ’08 and ’12 are based on Obama I.D. Fraud, and a conspiracy with Rep. Nancy Pelosi and DNC et al, therefore We The People have no valid contract with Barack H. Obama II aka Barry Soetoro to allow him to occupy the Office of President of the united States of America, or to take vacations with immunity from criminal arrest in Hawaii, becauseFRAUD vitiates the most solemn contracts, documents and even judgments. United States v. Throckmorton [1878] 98 JU.S. 61, 70. The illegal alien Barack H. Obama II aka Barry Soetoro is criminally impersonating a Citizen of USA by fraud I.D., and he is usurping the Office of POTUS. He must be ARRESTED as a criminal, as an illegal alien, Usurper, I.D. fraud, Election Fraud, etc., by Hawaii law enforcement and/or where ever by FBI, CIA, HS, CG , ICE; not impeached as IF he was POTUS.

    Furthermore, Obama by his TREASONOUS actions is prohibited from Office by 14th Amendment:

    Amendment Article 14, Section 3.

    No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution [for] the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof….”.

    ARREST Barack H. Obama II aka Barry Soetoro illegal alien Enemy of USA, Jihadist, Criminal!

    Call Congress: Congress today at (202) 225-3121. Tell them to Defund Obama’s Amnesty NOW. And, terminate immediately all federal welfare programs, including Amnesty, ObamaPhones and Obamacare and ObamaDeathTax, Food Stamps, etc., for everybody; arrest and deport all illegal aliens starting with illegal alien usurper of Office named Barack H. Obama II aka Barry Soetoro, NOW!

    Thank you Senator Ben Sasse for your efforts to stop ObamaAmnesty, Obamacare, ObamaWar, ObamaEcomony, ObamaIRS, ObamaHomelandSecurityMartial Law, and the criminal usurpation of the Office of POTUS by the illegal alien Barack H. Obama II aka Barry Soetoro who is using fraudulent I.D. to impersonate a Citizen of USA while committing TREASON. DEFUND everything Obama, and arrest the number one criminal and Islamic threat to all Americans who is named Barack H. Obama II aka Barry Soetoro!

    The Father of the Constitution, James Madison, said, “If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.” The so called war on terror with Obama the Enemy Jihadist Infiltrator usurping the Office of POTUS will be our undoing if we do not ARREST, INDICT, and Convict him of multiple crimes from Usurpation by I.D. and Election Fraud, Immigration felonies, to Murder and Treason. Obama is NOT the POTUS, just a criminal Usurper!

    • Emma

      I Agree!!
      Been saying it for years
      THEN can we hang him?
      And everyone , & I do mean EVERYONE
      Who has been complicit in the illegal foreign occupation of our America.
      We are at War. The enemy squats in the Highest Office in the Land!!

  • H.M.Stumpf

    YES, YES, put them in concentration camps until the crazies stop. Their war against the USA. No more mosques to be built in the United States.

    • tk-atty

      We need to stop all immigration period and surveillance of Mosques and those Professors on our College campus’ who are teaching Islamic studies to students or who are Islamic, no teaching of Islam in public schools which they ARE doing, and no go zone neighborhoods like in Dearborn, Michigan. Where the police and Christians and anyone else the Muslims don’t like aren’t allowed by the government. This would end up being used against American Citizens who are patriots, Constitutionalists, Christian, Jewish, Military , anyone who does not agree with Obama’s agenda/ I do not trust him, I don’t think he will even leave office, he will cause some false flag and implement martial law. Does he do anything good for America? No, he is very evil and wicked. We need to seeking God for our Nation and for Godly leaders. We are living in the most dangerous times I have seen in my lifetime, with all our freedoms at risk, and I have been an Attorney for going on 30 years. If someone would have said this much chaos and damage could be done in a six 1/2 period, I wouldn’t have believed it. Obama hates America, and loves chaos, the only other person who loves chaos as much, is Satan himself. That is a scary thought. God forgive America for electing this man, and help us save our Country, in Jesus name I ask this. Amen

      • eagle keeper

        Right on brother. Amen exactly. We better take a knee and have a conversation with Jehovah God and ask him to get us out of the impending mess we are headed for.

  • Lime n coconut

    This is clearly to round up americans.
    (Because criminals are let out daily and criminals run borders by the thousands – a day! And their not rounded up!)
    Why is that!?

    Our borders are hemoraging with horrific murders and meth, terrorists flock to the borders and drop their rugs along the way, the irs targets groups (right) because they want to shut them down but never hoes afyer tax evaders, black panthers use baseball bats outside voting sites and its not viewed as a hate crime even though they say they will kill whites, and more

    If the government wanted to protect america they would have built a fence like the great wall of china ( the money was funded but vanished! our illigal” immigration would halt, all visa violators would be required to leave or in 24 hrs face and name posted on internet to be removed from our nation (following the laws or dont come here), someone who stole your identity would be prosecuted and all their assets ceized, and more

    But what does it matter- its more important to have a rock n roll party at white house or send michelle and her top 100 friends around the world on americas dime. It even takes 4 days to fly flag half mast for murdered marines!

    Clearly a misconnect.
    When has a president not act presidential?
    When did america lose its way?
    why is it a hate crime for some but not others?
    When has a president let 30,000 prisoners out of prison after our courts, police and prosecutors worked for years to get them in and off the street?

    This clearly is the twilight xone.

    We dont need camps- the president just set up camps, food snd clothed them and let them in!

    Solutions
    1) follow the law
    2) build the fence like the great wall of china, all illegals have to work on wall for violating law and pay their way back- 6 months of work. In their country you would never be seen again for the same law breaker.
    3) all people who violated their visa have to report location in 24 hrs if not face and details are posted and a bounty will be provided for giving location of visa violator. In other countries you have to provide location and have a tome limit how long ypu can stay.
    4) anyone who commits crim and is illegal or visa violator- ALL fily members are deported. This will encourage people to teport the bad ones snd get them out.
    5) you use someone elses identity or docial you can never become a citizen- ypu ruined an innocent persons credit- ypu will also owe testitution or work in prison untill ypu pay it back
    6) all people in prison work for their stay- they grow own vegitables and have chicken houses- reducing tax payor dollars. This is not the ritz- you owe your room, board and care. No work out rooms either. All prisons double up, night shift and day shift- 4 to a cell – 10 hrs each. Again, you dont want prison- dont do the time.
    6) no benefits for any illegals, no good dtamps, no housing – none. You come here legally and you are welcome- you love america more than life itself- your welcome. All others complain to your own nation- its their govt that made you flee- they dissapointed you.
    7) children brought in by parents still have to pass the exams of immigration. And no criminal records.
    8) americans have rules others should obey them too- or dont cross over.
    Lastly, stop all people from entry who are from nations who hate america. You cant come to college here or visit- you dont like it- go back home.

    You visit a nation with terorist activities you will be lie detector tested, opt scanned, and fingerprinted upon return and have to report location of housing for 24 months- if you violate this- and your not a citizen your deported.

    America is free and we are under threat from non free hateful nations- we will survive.

    • Emma

      Excellent post!

  • Clayton Blackwell

    Then start with the President and EVERY member of Congress that supports Muslims and the rich !% over the American populace. They are the FIRST that should be sent to the POW camps!

  • eagle keeper

    Yes!! Put all the radical and so called moderate muslims in internment camps. Don’t let them get more of a foothold than they already have. If we don’t round them up like we did the Japanese in WW2, we will be sorry. Forgive me, I am not politically correct. never had much use for walking on eggshells. If I think it I say it, or in this case type it. If we don’t, we know what is coming if we don’t. It isn’t going to be good for anyone.
