H.R. 2082 Proves Majority Of Republicans And Democrats Are Two Sides Of Same Coin Working For New World Order

I was happy to learn that there was a bill presented to President Bush by the Senate which would restrict the C.I.A.'s interrogation methods. Mandating that no person in the custody or within the control of an element of the intelligence community, regardless of that individual’s physical location or nationality, shall be “subject to any treatment or technique of interrogation not authorized by the United States Army Field Manual on Human Intelligence Collector Operations” (Sec. 327). The corporate controlled media almost had me fooled when it covered President Bush Vetoing H.R. 2082. Read CBS report here: Republicans Stop Bill To Ban Waterboarding

I decided to go read H.R. 2082 myself to see who voted yes in Congress and who voted no. I thought this would be important to know who was for torture and who was not for torture. It was no surprise for me to learn President Bush vetoed the Bill, after all, dictators through out history loved to torture people. It was shocking however to see that Ron Paul did vote no to this bill in the House when it was introduced by a Democrat from Texas, Silvestre Reyes. I then found out Dennis Kucinich voted no, which shocked me again. But wait there is more. John McCain, the guy who said he was against torture of detainees, voted no on this Bill also. Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich voted the same as George Bush and John McCain? I thought I was living in the twilight zone. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were to busy showing the American people which one could be the bigger socialist to even vote on this bill.

Here is a summary of the bill provided by Project Vote Smart:

-Authorizes classified dollar amounts to be appropriated for fiscal year 2008 for intelligence and intelligence-related activities for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Department of Defense, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, the Department of the Army, the Department of the Navy, the Department of the Air Force, the Coast Guard, the Department of State, the Department of the Treasury, the Department of Energy, the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the National Reconnaissance Office, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and the Department of Homeland Security (Sec. 101).

  • - Requires $39.00 million to be transferred from the Director of National Intelligence to the Attorney General for the National Drug Intelligence Center (Sec. 104).
  • - Authorizes $262.50 million for the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability Fund (Sec. 201).
  • - Directs the Director of National Intelligence to implement a multi-level security clearance system for persons proficient in foreign languages or with cultural, linguistic, or other subject matter expertise “critical to national security,” and to annually report to Congress regarding the foreign language proficiency of the intelligence community (Sec. 303, Sec. 414).
  • - Requires the Director of National Intelligence to submit a report to Congress no later than March 31, 2008, regarding the use and impact of private contractors in the intelligence community, as well as the accountability mechanisms that govern their performance (Sec. 307).
  • - Requires the Director of National Intelligence to submit a report to Congress no later than March 31, 2008, outlining plans to increase the recruiting, hiring, and retaining of diverse candidates (Sec. 309).
  • - Directs the Director of National Intelligence to conduct vulnerability assessments for major systems, which are defined as significant programs of the intelligence community with projected total development and procurement costs exceeding $500.00 million (Sec. 311).
  • - Directs the Director of National Intelligence to present annual reports to Congress regarding the acquisition of any major systems and to notify Congress within 60 days if development costs for any programs significantly exceed the baseline costs (Sec. 313, Sec. 314).
  • - Increases the time of potential imprisonment for disclosing the identity of undercover intelligence officers and agents from 10 to 15 years (Sec. 324).
  • - Requires the Director of National Intelligence to report to Congress within 45 days after the date of the enactment of this bill regarding the detention and interrogation methods used by the intelligence community (Sec. 326).
  • - Mandates that no person in the custody or within the control of an element of the intelligence community, regardless of that individual’s physical location or nationality, shall be “subject to any treatment or technique of interrogation not authorized by the United States Army Field Manual on Human Intelligence Collector Operations” (Sec. 327).
  • - Requires all members of the Congressional intelligence committees to be fully updated on intelligence regarding the Israeli military action in Syria on September 6, 2007, before more than 30 percent of authorized appropriations may be expended (Sec. 328).
  • - Requires the Director of National Intelligence to report to Congress regarding the nuclear intentions and capabilities of Iran and North Korea (Sec. 407).
  • - Establishes an Office of the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community to objectively investigate and audit the conduct of the intelligence community (Sec. 413).

  • It is very clear to me that George Bush vetoed this bill because he is for the torture of detainees. It is also clear that Manchurian candidate John McCain is a great liar who also supports torture of detainees and has also supported the Bush Administration on almost every key issue. While the mainstream media sells the Democrat Party of change to the American people. I want to bring reality home to the American people and show them they are being tricked once again by a criminal government who taxes its people with out representing them.

    Lets talk about what this bill does that most likely caused Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich to vote no. It authorizes $734,126,000 in Classified amounts of tax payer money to go to intelligence and intelligence-related activities for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Department of Defense, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, the Department of the Army, the Department of the Navy, the Department of the Air Force, the Coast Guard, the Department of State, the Department of the Treasury, the Department of Energy, the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the National Reconnaissance Office, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and the Department of Homeland Security.

    It also authorizes $39 million to be transferred from the Director of National Intelligence to the Attorney General for the National Drug Intelligence Center. Also it is authorizing $262.50 million for the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability Fund. So while Americans are losing jobs, health care system is in the sewer, and the dollar is losing value the Democrats want to give your tax payer money to Homeland Security and the C.I.A to keep you safe from terrorist groups like Al-CIADA, I mean Al-Quida. This sounds just like a Republican agenda.

    In closing, it did not matter if this bill passed or not. The American people still lose because we have a rogue government who doesn't represent the American people in the first place. Click here to read bill H.R. 2082
