"Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it." -John Adams

Welcome to Patriot's Lament. We strive here to educate ourselves on Liberty. We will not worry ourselves so much with the daily antics of American politics, and drown ourselves in the murky waters of the political right or left.
Instead, we will look to the Intellectuals and Champions of Liberty, and draw on their wisdom of what it is to be a truly free people. We will learn from where our Providential Liberties are derived, and put the proper perspective of a Free Individual and the State.
Please join us!

The Quirin Precedent

I realized I never put this on the blog. It is called the ""Quirin Precedent".

A link to what it is can be found here: Quirin Precedent

This is extremely important because this precedent is what your representatives are spouting off as to why the passage of the NDAA is constitutional.

Key phrase: Law of War.

  DISPOSITION UNDER LAW OF WAR. – For purposes of this subsection, the disposition of a person under the law of war has the meaning given in section 1031(c), except that no transfer otherwise described in paragraph (4) of that section shall be made unless consistent with the requirements of section 1033. 9

Rules under the Law of War according to the Supreme Court in the Quirin Precedent were different than rules under the Articles of War. Why?
The Law of War is in effect when the country is under Martial Law.
Under the Law of War, the Constitution has no authority. The Congress is claiming and has even put in the legislation authority to the President under the Law of War.

So we connect the dots........ we are under Martial Law, and all power is held by the Executive under the Law of War.

Your representatives have put it in record.
