The White House – Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release – December 31, 2011
Statement by the President on H.R. 1540

 

Today I have signed into law H.R. 1540, the “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012.” I have signed the Act chiefly because it authorizes funding for the defense of the United States and its interests abroad, crucial services for service members and their families, and vital national security programs that must be renewed. In hundreds of separate sections totaling over 500 pages, the Act also contains critical Administration initiatives to control the spiraling health care costs of the Department of Defense (DoD), to develop counterterrorism initiatives abroad, to build the security capacity of key partners, to modernize the force, and to boost the efficiency and effectiveness of military operations worldwide.

Last WH press release had been on 12/15/2011…

Press Briefing Room, by Press Secretary Jay Carney;

Q    You had objections to the defense bill; you’ve dropped them.  There’s still a lot of civil liberties experts who are convinced that that bill contains the seed of the future detention ofU.S.citizens indeterminately if they’re suspected of terrorism.  Are you really that convinced that there was a big enough change that you’d drop an important issue like this?

MR. CARNEY:  Well, let me make clear that this was not the preferred approach of this administration, and we made clear that any bill that challenges or constrains the President’s critical authorities to collect intelligence, incapacitate dangerous terrorists, and protect the nation would prompt the President’s senior advisors to recommend a veto.

After intensive engagement by senior administration officials, the administration has succeeded in prompting the authors of the detainee provisions to make several important changes, including the removal of problematic provisions.

While we remain concerned about the uncertainty that this law will create for our counterterrorism professionals, the most recent changes give the President additional discretion in determining how the law will be implemented, consistent with our values and the rule of law, which are at the heart of our country’s strength.

This legislation authorizes critical funding for military personnel overseas, and its passage sends an important signal that Congress supports our efforts as we end the war in Iraq and transition to Afghan lead, while ensuring that our military can meet the challenges of the 21st century.

On the provision in particular that you reference, it does not increase or otherwise change any of our authorities in regard to detention of American citizens.  It is simply a restatement of the authorities that were granted to the President in 2001.

Q    Is this just a recognition that ultimately the courts would settle disputes like that?

MR. CARNEY:  No, the changes give discretion to the President in the implementation of this law.  If, as this law is being implemented, the President feels that our counterterrorism professionals are being constrained and that their flexibility is being constrained in a way that does not reflect our values, then he will ask for changes.  He will go to the authors of these provisions and ask for legislative changes that are separate from the defense authorization bill.

But again, the changes that were made were sufficient to allow senior advisors to withdraw the recommendation of a veto, but we are still concerned about the uncertainty that this law creates.

Obama Uncle Tom or Uncle Sam

with 11 comments


 

The night Obama won, Ralph Nader asked if Barack Obama would turn out to be either, an Uncle Sam to the people or an Uncle Tom for the Multinational Global Corporations

 

That was the question President Barrack Obama needed to answer with his actions as president, Nader had pointed out.

Was President Obama going to continue to go along with corporate power, as he had from the moment he entered politics in the state senate?

Would he serve the global corporations that have hijacked the country and have no allegiance to the United States except to offshore our jobs to communist and fascist dictatorships abroad, who know how to keep their workers in place?

Has he been a great president or has he been a toady for the corporate powers, the multinationals, which have brought both parties to their knees against the working people of this country?

Today Ralph Nader is saying that Obama’s rhetoric, policy and track record must be challenge by democratic base in open debate.

 –

What have his actions as president been? According Mr. Nader and my tally

  • He did not raise the min wage to $9.50 as promised, it is still $7.25
  • Did not press for deregulation of workers ability to form and empower trade unions
  • Did not revise NAFTA and the job depleting off shoring
  • Did not bring the troops home
  • Has engaged the United States in several additional wars under the authority of the UN and without legislative approval
  • Continued the expansion of the military industrial complex, war on drugs, Guantanamo, torture, rendition, foreign policy and secrecy of the Bush doctrine
  • Spearheaded one of the largest increases in the violations of natural rights and loss of civil liberties in this nation’s history, through the massive expansion and militarization of Bush’s Department Homeland and federal police enforcement.
  • Continued the practice of presidential signing orders and presidential directives
  • Extended bush tax cuts, waivers and incentives on corporations and the very, very wealthy
  • Created HMO and insurance PAC drafted fascist state/corporate waiver healthcare model
  • Has implemented carbon caps, regulations and taxation with multinational corporate waivers, under presidential EPA powers, accelerating the off shoring of  jobs to nations with no environmental safe guards as well as caused massive manufacturing and power facility closures through out the country
  • Put the American taxpayers fully on the hook for over 600 trillion in toxic and fraudulent debt
  • Gave over 27 trillion dollars in bailouts directly to Wall Street firms, financial institutions and global corporations with no oversight (through TARP, QE1, Federal Reserve Practices,  etc)
  • Helped create in 2009 the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) as a New Deal for American recovery, it has awarded 275 billion dollars and actually given 175 billion to date
  • Obama Signs NDAA 2011-12 into Law, ending 222 years of the Bill of Rights?!!

  • Now, near the last year of his Presidency, he has announced a 500 billion dollar New, New Deal or New Deal 2,  for additional local infrastructure projects in the American Jobs Act (AJA)

 

Obama: “You Know I Tell The Truth”

That is the Obama Deception.

With the stimulus and bailouts that have been granted to date, President Obama has channeled over 27 trillion dollars directly to the global corporate state; while his direct local business and infrastructure bailouts are only over 900 billion dollars (275 billion from ARRA and other acts as well as 500 billion promised via the AJA)

All other examples of Bushism aside; with only 3.5% of total direct bailout dollars going to small businesses and local incorporation; and while 96.5% of direct bailout dollars are going to multinational corporations, Ralph Nader’s question can be answered.

President Obama has shown himself to be; 3.5% Uncle Sam for America and 96.5% Uncle Tom for the Multinational Corporations, for Global Governance

Look at the numbers, see the whole picture for what it is; a deindustrialization and removal of power from the American people.

Is Obama Uncle an Uncle Tom?
