President Obama Can Order Drone Killings of American Citizens

The U.S. Justice Department has just released a 16-page memo outlining its justification for why President Obama can order drone killings of American citizens and it seems everybody is screaming foul! Saying things like: “This is a chilling document,” (Jameel Jaffer, deputy legal director of the ACL); "If you believe the president has the power to order U.S. citizens executed far from any battlefield with no charges or trial, then it’s truly hard to conceive of any asserted power you would find objectionable," (constitutional lawyer Glenn Greenwald); "But when an oppressive government regime decides to utterly ignore the Constitution and the limits of power described therein, it become a dictatorial tyranny. We are there now in America". (Mike Adams, editor of; “Anyone should be concerned when the president and his lawyers make up their own interpretation of the law or their own rules,” and “This is a very, very dangerous thing that the president has done", said Mary Ellen O’Connell, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame; "Every American has the right to know when their government believes that it is allowed to kill them"....Senator Wyden; "In plain language, [the Obama administration memo] means that [any Americans can be assassinated if] the President considers the citizens to be a threat in the future. Moreover, the memo allows killings when an attempt to capture the person would pose an “undue risk” to U.S. personnel. That undue risk is left undefined"....Top constitutional law expert Jonathan Turley.

Well my point is this. Where was all of this concern back in September of 2011? I wrote about Obama's murdering ways in October 2011 after he assassinated Anwar al-Awlaki! But no one wanted to listen then! NOW that as I said....."If the government can hunt down and EXECUTE even just ONE American, and WE THE PEOPLE ALLOW IT... who says YOU won't be the next one within their crosshairs"?.... has come to pass, everybody wants to scream foul! Where were all of of you back when President Obama first publicly did this? It's evident y'all didn't care THEN! Why? Cause y'all RE-ELECTED the tyrant! But NOW, cause you let Obama get away with killing a US citizen back then, and then told him you approved his doing so by re-electing the murderous son-of-biscuit maker, and he has decided that the rest of us can be put into his cross hairs, NOW you scream no? Where was all of your concern for your fellow US citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki? Seems to me that all of you just may deserve what's coming down the road cause you never stood up for YOUR rights when this was done to Anwar al-Awlaki! Cause make NO MISTAKE about it, when ONE American's rights are violated... ALL Americans' rights are violated!!! And this authorized presidential drone killings only serves to point this out!

First they came for the communists, 
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist. 

 Then they came for the trade unionists, 
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist. 

 Then they came for the Jews, 
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew. 

 Then they came for me 
and there was no one left to speak out for me. - Pastor Martin Neimöller

Well they are coming for you....aren't you lucky that there IS SOMEONE LEFT (like me!!) to speak out for you?
