It didn’t take long for Obama to become a suspected criminal once becoming president. Click here to read ThinkProgress.org’s article describing how Obama’s immunity granted to those who participated in torture is illegal under international law. This would make him a criminal internationally and in the US.
It has been nearly three months since the Obama Administration took control of the White House. He rode in high on promises of change. Admittedly, he has made a few positive steps. However, it seems for every step forward he makes, he is content with taking two steps backward. Seeing as how the American mainstream media will not do their job, I wanted to bring to light Obama’s actions on civil liberties, which are currently mirroring those of George W. Bush.
Let’s start off with Obama’s executive order to close down the Guantanamo Bay prison camp. This was a positive step for human rights. Obama opposed the denial of rights to the prisoners kept at Guantanamo. He also supported the verdict of Boumediene v Bush, which stated the denial of Habeas Corpus rights to the prisoners at Guantanamo was unconstitutional. After this ruling dealt a blow to the Bush Administration, Bush still did not stop imprisoning people without charges. He simply began shipping them to our prison camp at Bagram, Afghanistan. Bush asserted that the prisoners at Bagram had no rights of any kind.

You can literally hear people laughing at the man predicting our current crisis. The same idiots who criticized him for his prediction then, are now saying nobody predicted it. Don’t believe them!
We would like to thank all those who attended Thomas Woods’s speech. We will be posting his speech on youtube or some other video site as soon as possible. In the meantime, visit his website here.
When we do get it posted online, we will post the clips to this website. Be checking in with us for that.
So it’s not just me. Ryan McMaken is also frustrated by conservatives who only oppose Big Government when they’re out of power.
