IT’S OFFICIAL: Holder Say Obama CAN Kill US Citizens In Drone Attacks

Yes, the president could conceivably have no choice but to authorise the military to use such force if necessary to protect the homeland," Mr Holder said. ...
He has 100%, pre-approved authority to launch drone strikes on US citizens on American soil. Are you comfortable with that?

Obama, The Decider

Eric Holder argued that using lethal military force against an American in his home country would be legal and justified in an “extraordinary circumstance” comparable to the September 11 terrorist attacks.

“The president could conceivably have no choice but to authorise the military to use such force if necessary to protect the homeland,” Mr Holder said.

His statement was described as “more than frightening” by Senator Rand Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, who had demanded to know the Obama administration’s position on the subject.


He has 100%, pre-approved authority to launch drone strikes on US citizens on American soil. Are you comfortable with that?

“It is an affront the constitutional due process rights of all Americans,” said Mr Paul, a 50-year-old favourite of the anti-government Tea Party movement, who is expected to run for president in 2016.

Mr Holder wrote to Mr Paul after the senator threatened to block the appointment of John Brennan as the director of the CIA unless he received answers to a series of questions on its activities.

Mr Holder stressed in his letter that the prospect of a president considering the assassination of an American citizen on US soil was “entirely hypothetical” and “unlikely to occur”.

Yet “it is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the president to authorise the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States,” he wrote. source – Telegraph UK

    Why would we trust anything this group says? The drone strikes in another soverign country of american citizens is wrong but this government bragged about it even won an election on it. It’s not just hype. I stand by rand paul and hope congressmen like mccain and graham have seen their last election win. Vote them out and save america.

  • Stories like this are downright scary holding fast to the Lords hand.

  • Surely the administration is speaking about those who are pushing the caliphat! Not us law abiding citizen, ya think?!
    Read the other day that there are over 35 training places for those of the Ishmael tribe, but they are special, just as those who are here illegally! It’s the US citizens that need to be reprogram’d in interment camps to earn freedom’s! The 4th horseman is not pale, he’s green, what group of haters are associated w/the color green hint, it’s a brother of Isaac!
    We know before the middle of Dan’s week the nation of green will be wiped out, the rest will turn to the one True God, Praise the Lord!

  • Am I the only one thinking that if this was not to be allowed where would we end up?
    For example, a terrorist group (Made up of American Citizens) is holing the country to ransom and there is indisputable evidence they are going to deploy a nuclear missile within an hour on a major US city, the government should stand by and do nothing? You are saying that it is bad that the government has the power to eradicate the threat?
    I dont believe in unilateral power, however sometimes our leaders do require the ability to act in our best interests without the need for a referendum on every issue. After all, the only leader we really need is His Majesty, our Lord, Jesus Christ.
    I appreciate your posts, NTEB, but sometimes, just sometimes, Obama isn’t all bad.. (NOT VERY OFTEN!!!!)

    • Hey Brian – I totally agree with what your saying. But big picture? A lot of people realize that our country SOON will be irrelevant. We will be broke. We will be a third world country. I think what people’s concerns are is that we will turn into a communist country. If we refuse to do what our leader tells us to do, we will eventually stand up and strike back for what we believe is to be unfair and cruel. And…sad to say I am one who believes all of this drone talk and acquiring military vehicles is being set up for our presidents protection and to use against us who rebel. But….I also believe and this is the best part…I also believe if we can get our own hearts right with Jesus and get as many as we can…their hearts right with Jesus then when the rapture comes we will all be taken to the sky in Heaven. THEN we won’t have to worry about drones and land mine safe vehicles patrolling our air or neighborhoods.

    • Do you trust any politicians Brian? Should we trust any of them? Have they given us reason to trust them at this point? Let us remember it is not all Obama’s fault. He is certianly not helping things with a lot of stuff he does But I 100% agree. We did not wind up here over night as a country. IN FACT the sad truth is non of this stuff happening now happens in a year or 3 or 5 or even 10 years. No in order for all this to come about it takes quite a few more years then 10. The bottom line is WHO DO YOU TRUST? Who do you want in power when it all goes south? Is this person making the right decisions for when it goes south?

      Do you really trust these people? Do you? It only takes me a few seconds to tell whether someone is trustworthy. I guess I am gifted in that aspect. I do not trust any of them. Again it only took me a few seconds to figure this out. Here let me share just a few seconds with ya.

      I understand what your saying Brian. But it all comes down to a few seconds and who do you want in control when it all comes apart?

      • How about this.

        1. Would you want a leader who forces laws upon free people even if its for their own good? Whether the people want it or not?

        2. Or would you want a leader who does not force laws upon people. But when the emergency arises if necessary disregards laws for the right decision (to disregard laws to protect the country should said situation arise)?

        Which type of those 2 leaders is actually a leader in the first place?

  • We have abortion on demand, gay marriage on demand, why not drone strikes on demand?

  • I don’t want anyone to lose their right to bear arms.

  • God help us all. God is in control. We must remember that.

    • You are so right. God IS in control Becky

  • Obama is acting like he is the law of the land where our judicial rights doesn’t matter. He has no idea of a kill ratio of a drone explosive. It would be okay to target a possible terrorist, I said possible, but it could be someone riding a donkey for that matter to church in Texas, in the desert where no innocent children or people may be. We have elected a nobody into the highest position in the country and I believe other nations are now laughing and convince that we are truly stupid……

    • We all share your concerns Fisherman

  • I don’t belong to this world. I am not an American to have American spirit nor of any other country to have the spirit of that country. I belong to a Kingdom and a City made without hands and I have the Spirit of that Kingdom dwelling in me. I am in a land of strangers where oppression is expected. May the Lord give us all the strength to withstand this oppression till the time of our Exodus comes. The joy of the Lord is our strength. So rejoice in the Lord always ye saints and again I say rejoice.

    • Amen – Levi

  • I stand on Psalm 23! The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures: he leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake. Yes, though I walk through the vallley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for YOU are with me; Your rod and your staff they comfort me. YOU prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; YOU anointed my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever! Shalom!

  • Lets us pray together!!!

    Psalm 91
    King James Version (KJV)

    1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
    2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
    3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
    4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
    5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
    6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
    7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
    8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
    9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
    10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
    11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
    12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
    13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
    14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
    15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
    16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

    Matthew 18:20
    King James Version (KJV)

    20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

    Matthew 7:7
    King James Version (KJV)

    7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

    Matthew 21:22
    King James Version (KJV)

    22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

    God Bless All !!!!!

    • A MEN D CITY

      Please everyone, watch the video above, although
      you may need a box of tissues, as their concern,
      care and compassion may bring you to tears !

      God Bless !

  • O yea the drones that are for terrrorists are for Christians. Don’t believe me!!

    I suppose you need proof because this is to far fetched right?

    I mean this guy D City is nuts right?

    He has obviously gone off the deep end?


    • Notice how they are calling veterans returning from Iraq and Gulf war.

      Let someone with a keen eye explain what that is telling you.

      Notice they didn’t say Afghanistan war. You might ask WHY? Because they were still at war when new president took office and propaganda has been controlled on them much better. But many of the Iraq and Gulf war veterans that came home did not receive that propagada when abroad under a different president.

      Ahhhhhhhhhhh hahhhhhhhhhhhh has the lightbulb gone off yet!!!

  • I will be back later, I am going to stand in front of an abortion clinc with a sign. I have a cage of sparrows to set free if I see a drone. God Bless.

  • This is in preparation for the next civil war. When this communist, liberal, socialist, fascist regime imposes it’s final solution of tyranny, the true patriotic Americans will rise up and the drones (among other weapons) will be used against them.

  • Any one who thinks they can reason with a drone. Guess again!!

    • O man, it is so hard to read and listen at the same time. So what do I do? I listen once and then replay it to read it.

      • I am sorry, it is not this video but the other video following this one which says that microchip will be implanted by March 2013.

        • Levi, you said in your post above that you have the Spirit of the Kingdom living within you, so don’t worry about the microchip.
          True Christians are sealed by God, and not one person living on this planet can snatch us away from Him. Live in peace my friend, and let’s pray for others.
          God Bless All

          • Thank you Tracy. But this microchip will not give me any worries, cause I know I won’t be here by the time it comes out in the open. I am looking for the appearing of our great God and our Lord Jesus Christ and not when they will start implanting micrchips. It was just that I came across this video when I was just watching something else. It was Benjamin Netanyahu’s pic what made me to watch the video. God bless you.

  • You know that little scene from that movie there seems a bit far fetched doesn’t it? Complete fantasy.

    Or is it? I mean really what are we talking about here?

    Well in that movie they had created machines that could do the jobs for them.

    Same thing here. Its a complete disconnect from the persons or situations. You sit behind a computer and press a button. The machine takes care of the rest. Ultimately that is what happened in the movie and that is what is happening here.

    Now standing next to someone telling them to pull the trigger or execute a real person is a lot tougher for the person pulling the trigger or doing the executing.

    But being completely disconnected from said person or situation its easier to get them to press a button and them not being directly in contact or effected in any way by the immediate results. Thats a whole lot easier now isn’t it.

    So as far fetched as that movie was. It is very real and it is here now and its just the beginning.

  • It could be said that the main difference between the current U.S. and North Korea is time. And with its technology, America may end up being worse than N.K. Passive genocide by incompetence and neglect is one thing, but active genocide through pretext and deceit is at several orders of magnitude worse. Unfortunately, the majority of America is still comfortable with hearing and being deceived by the annually paraded lie that the state of the nation is strong, still constantly and ever more frequently hammered to a now biblically, morally, and historically illiterate public unwilling to confront evil and even let it fester under the excuse of ‘such conditions of the endtimes were prophesied’.

    America has been weighed in the balance. What you see now are the preparations/stages prior to what shall befall the apostate leadership and willing blind who have chosen their champion and destroyer.

  • The danger of North Korea is youth. Yes youth runs that country that has nuclear capabilities. So here an adrenaline infused young man who has never known a day of humility in his life. Has never been humbled or learned to be humble.

    This young man is in charge of great power. He is determined to be heard and knows little to nothing about the consequences of such actions or things. He is also in charge at a time in history when its probably the most dangerous to have a young man with little to no life experience at the helm of any country, never mind a country that has nuclear capabilities.

    He will be easily coerced and influenced into situations that could be the catalyst that start WW3.

    • Right on D City

  • cliche

    If president Barack Obama can kill Americans with drones …then the next president will have the same power…so the fear won’t stop in 2016…it will be worse

  • Depends on if we elect a leader or not. A leader will abolish these laws that are wrong. A follower will stick with the routine. Cowards and followers are great assets to routine.

    Leaders have integrity and will fight the fight because its right. We have not had a leader in office in a long long time.

  • This is just too much power given to one man. Big Brother is already watching, and as you can see there are many citizens who don’t like what the president has become, nor what he is doing to our country. Who’s to say that he wouldn’t use this weapon to eliminate political adversaries, thus weilding more authoritative power to strike down those who do not comply with his “new American Constitution.” I think it is nuts! the military already has the capability to go after terrorists. what about mistaken identity. You’ve seen those police raids where they have gone in and terrorized an innocent family because some knucklehead gave them the wrong address. If such a strategy is put in place, then we are seeing the “beast” in the white house.
