Amendments 4 and 5 of The United States Bill Of Rights protect the right to be free of unwarranted and unwanted government intrusion into one’s personal and private affairs, papers, and possessions. Article 12 of The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights states, “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honor and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.”


President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) today, allowing indefinite detention to be codified into law. As you know, the White House had threatened to veto an earlier version of the NDAA but reversed course shortly before Congress voted on the final bill. While President Obama issued a signing statement saying he had “serious reservations” about the provisions, the statement only applies to how his administration would use it and would not affect how the law is interpreted by subsequent administrations.


Under the Bush administration, similar claims of worldwide detention authority were used to hold even a U.S. citizen detained on U.S. soil in military custody, and many in Congress now assert that the NDAA should be used in the same way again. The ACLU believes that any military detention of American citizens or others within the United States is unconstitutional and illegal, including under the NDAA. In addition, the breadth of the NDAA’s detention authority violates international law because it is not limited to people captured in the context of an actual armed conflict as required by the laws of war.

So after spending months threatening to veto the Levin/McCain detention bill instead signed it into law (this is the same two faced individual, of course, who unequivocally vowed when seeking the Democratic nomination to support a filibuster of “any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecom[s],” only to turn around once he had the nomination secure and not only vote against such a filibuster, but to vote in favor of the underlying bill itself, so this is perfectly consistent with his past conduct). As a result, the final version of the Levin/McCain bill will be enshrined as law this week as part of the the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). we wrote about the primary provisions and implications of this bill below.


The ACLU said last night that the bill contains “harmful provisions that some legislators have said could authorize the U.S. military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians, including American citizens, anywhere in the world” and added: “if President Obama signs this bill, it will damage his legacy.” (not that he has a legacy) Human Rights Watch said that Obama’s decision “does enormous damage to the rule of law both in the US and abroad” and that “President Obama will go down in history as the president who enshrined indefinite detention without trial in US law.” Keep in mind, Obama is not a citizen and is not qualified according to our constitution to even be President. So he hates America and the constitution that protects us. Read


Congress loves indefinite arrest of “terrorist suspects” and their subsequent torture just as much as did Skull & Bones President George W. Bush!

This reality means that the relentless government march to Absolute Dictatorship is on track and has the backing of a very wide group of powerful politicians, perhaps including your Congressman and Senator!

NEWS BRIEF: “Congress still okay with indefinite detention and torture of Americans, RT News, 19 May 2012

“Even after a federal court deemed the NDAA unconstitutional, the US House of Representatives refused to exclude indefinite detention provisions from the infamous defense spending bill during a vote on Friday. An attempt to strike down any provisions allowing for the US military to indefinitely detain American citizens without charge from next year’s National Defense Authorization Act was shot down Friday morning in the House of Representatives. “

Congress is supposed to represent the common people, having their best interest at heart. The House of Representatives was created with this populist idea, limiting the term to only two years. Our Founding Fathers felt that, if the Congressmen knew they had to face the voters every two years, they would more carefully and accurately serve the needs and desires of their constituents. Therefore, it is very distressing to realize that the Global Elite has successfully captured even the “common man’s friend”, the Congressman.

Why is Congress so intent upon keeping such dictatorial powers for the Federal Government, powers which could be turned against us common American citizens in a heartbeat? There is no good reason: the time has simply come to establish this horrific Absolute Dictatorship.

The Plan calls for this dictatorship to be brought about under the guise of “fighting terrorism”. Isn’t it so terribly sad and ironic? Under the pretension of saving our liberties from “terrorists” the government created in the first place, the government fully plans to create laws which will be used against and upon all American dissidents once the time arrives for this Constitutional Government to be dissolved.

You and I can be arrested on no charges, whisked away for secret trial at a secret location. The government does not have to allow you access to a lawyer, nor does it have to schedule a public trial by a peer jury. Government authorities can hold a secret trial in which you cannot defend yourself, they can sentence you to death if they wish and they can execute you, all in secret.

If you do not believe me, just search for Patriot Acts I and II and read the provisions for yourself.

The only reason we dissident Americans are not in jail is that these dictatorial laws are just one piece of the total dictatorial puzzle the Illuminati is assembling right now. When the time arrives for this country and the world to be plunged into the World War III which shall produce the Masonic Christ, then will all the pieces of the puzzle be implemented at once.

No one piece of this puzzle shall be implemented ahead of the others. When all pieces which have been set in place are enacted at once, the average citizen will not know what hit him. He will be stunned into inaction just long enough for the Illuminati to achieve their worldwide Absolute Dictatorship.

Remember, the time goal by which countries will be turned from free to slave is planned to be 72 hours.

America already has announced that they can declare any citizen an “enemy combatant” and treat him or her in any manner they wish: Arrest without charges, indefinite imprisonment even with no trial, secret imprisonment, secret trials and secret execution, and of course, secret burial of your remains. That includes you (the reader) and I.

The necessary laws to turn America into an Absolute Dictatorship started to be passed immediately after the planned attacks of 9/11 for this very reason. Patriot Acts I and II, along with dozens of other laws, take away all our freedoms and rights.

The government is poised to turn America into a Martial Law state in less than 72 hours. The Illuminati plan is to “line up all their ducks in a row”, and keep them sitting silently until the time had arrived for the implementation of them all.

The “right time” is defined as the beginning of the World War III which shall produce Antichrist. All these dictatorial laws will simply sit, unenforced, until World War III begins, and then they shall all be enforced at once. The average citizen will not know what hit him!

But, once that dictatorship is sprung upon the whole world, the most dangerous enemy the average citizen of any country will face will be his own government. Did you know the historical fact that “in the 20th Century, governments murdered four times as many civilians as were killed in all the international and domestic wars combined? Further, governments murdered millions more people than were killed by common criminals.

Federal Government definition of a “domestic terrorist” are now virtually identical to the definition of Nazi Germany!

Hitler so successfully maneuvered democratic Germany into Totalitarian Germany, current leaders of the Elite are copying this Nazi transformation nearly to the letter!

‘See Something Say Something’ Campaign Could Allow People to Label ANY AMERICAN a Suspected ‘Terrorist’… Just Like in Nazi Germany or Stasi East Germany”, Washington’s Blog, February 12, 2012

List of Actions or Beliefs Which May Get You Labeled a Terrorist Grows Daily

Every American could – literally – be labeled a suspected terrorist under current governmental criteria.

Specifically, the following actions may get a U.S. citizen labeled as a suspected terrorist today:

* Speaking out against government policies

* Protesting anything

* Questioning war (even though war reduces our national security)

* Criticizing the government’s targeting of innocent civilians with drones

* Asking questions about pollution (even at a public Congressional hearing?)

* Paying cash at an Internet cafe

* Asking questions about Wall Street crimes

* Holding / owning gold

* Stocking up on more than 7 days of food—even though all Mormons are taught to stockpile food, and most Hawaiians store up on extra food)

* Investigating factory farming

* Infringing a copyright—this definition is a joke, because Google / YouTube are the greatest proponents of copyright violations in the world! They have written their policies governing what can be uploaded on their video site so vaguely that virtually every video protected by copyright can be uploaded on these sites without any fear of real prosecution. Of course, Google donates untold millions of dollars to Democrat Party candidates.

* Taking pictures or videos – No dictatorship can allow any citizen to catch any policeman or soldier mistreating citizens. In an age where individual phones can take pictures on the spot, the government simply had to step in to declare such activity to unlawful according to “terrorist” laws.

“Holding the following beliefs may also be considered grounds for suspected terrorism:”

* Valuing online privacy

* Supporting Ron Paul or being a libertarian

* Liking the Founding Fathers

* Being a Christian

* Being anti-tax, anti-regulation or for the gold standard

* Being “reverent of individual liberty”

* Being “anti-nuclear”

* “Believe in conspiracy theories”

* “A belief that one’s personal and/or national “way of life” is under attack”

* “Impose strict religious tenets or laws on society (fundamentalists)”

* “Insert religion into the political sphere”

* “Those who seek to politicize religion”

* “Supported political movements for autonomy”

* Being “anti-abortion”

* Being “anti-Catholic”

* Being “anti-global”

* “Suspicious of centralized federal authority”

* “Fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation)”

* “A belief in the need to be prepared for an attack either by participating in … survivalism”

Starting immediately after the attacks of 9/11, the government began to pass new laws and regulations which are not implemented yet. Again, this action is copying those of Adolf Hitler, where he passed new laws and new regulations which systematically denied Germans all rights and liberties; but, he did not implement any of them until he started World War II on September 1, 1939. Once World War II began, Hitler immediately implemented all these new laws and regulations.

Likewise, our leaders have been passing new laws and regulations, but not implementing any of them right away. They are awaiting the beginning of World War III to enforce these dictatorial laws. But, when they are ready to move, they will have all aspects of American society under their firm control and they will have every possible dissident under their thumb.

Current plans call for America to be locked down in dictatorship within 72 hours.

Jesus warned that we must work hard every single day, because the time will come when darkness will fall when no man can work. You have the opportunity right now to use your knowledge of world events to challenge unsaved loved ones, friends and co-workers.

America, here’s some things you can do to protect some of your privacy. First make sure everything you do in “under the radar”. Get a tax ID number and incorporate it. You can incorporate in Nevada or Wyoming. Those states carry a corporate shield and keeps the criminal and unconstitutional IRS out of your business. You can transfer your possessions to your corporation. That will give you more privacy and you will be harder for government to find.

You can also get a business checking account in the name of your corporation. Second, get a P.O. box number and use that as much as you can instead of your residence address. Also, make sure you have a private unlisted telephone number.

I recently tried to open a bank account with my local bank , and when they asked for a SSN, I informed them that I didn’t have one. They flatly refused and said that without a SSN that they absolutely could NOT open an account of any kind. I then proceeded thus to convince them that they were in the wrong:

1) I informed them that I had terminated my SSN legally in accordance with 20 CFR 3 A7 404.1905 and 2) I informed them that the bank could not be held legally responsible by anyone for failing to obtain a SSN from me pursuant to 31 CFR 103.34(a)(1) and 3) I informed them that under the Internal Revenue Code Section 6041, that they were not even required to provide any taxpayer identification numbers on the Form 1099 that they file with the IRS at the end of the year, and 4) I informed them that pursuant to 26 CFR 301.6109-1© that they were under no legal obligation to obtain a SSN from me, and 5) I informed them that 42 USC 408 makes it a FELONY to use threat, duress, or coercion to try to force a person by fear or deceit to provide his SSN in an unlawful manner.

After a brief meeting with the banks controller and legal counsel, I received a phone call stating that I would be allowed to open a checking account. Please pass this information along to your readers, in hopes that it may help someone else who may find themselves in this situation.

Remember THE POLICE ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS! They are NOT on your side. Don’t think the police are out to protect you. They are not. They are simply hatchet men for the corrupt criminal court system. Yes, I’m calling the US court system criminal! If you get stopped for no good reason and the officer asks “where you are going” or “where are you coming from” Tell him, It is not relevant. Tell him “If I’ve done something wrong, site me, if not I would like my license back and I’ll be on my way.

Then ask him for his card and file a formal complaint (you can find a form on the internet in each area the police have jurisdiction) with his chief of police and the attorney general in your state for stopping you without probable cause. Sobriety check points are illegal too and if you get stopped for just being on the street, file a complaint with the attorney general there too. Remember, you don’t answer to the police, they answer to you! You pay their salary! Don’t put up with their intimidation tactics. Read more:


20 Things You Should Know About the Bill That Could Ruin America

Portions of the below article are from Lauri Apple

20 Things You Should Know About the Bill That Could Ruin America. Last week the U.S. Senate passed 93-7 a version of the National Defense Authorization Act that includes provisions giving the military the right to detain you forever and without charge if they think you’re some kind of terrorist.

President Barack Obama can get rid of the Act’s indefinite detention provisions by using his veto powers. He says he might do just that, so there is hope. But he could also change his mind at the last minute and let the language become law. But remember, Obama is nothing more than a spineless illuminati puppet and he, like all Presidents take pride in lying. Civil libertarians from all sides of the political spectrum are very anxious about the final call he’ll make. In the end, he’ll do what he Central banks tell him to do.

Even though you can’t do much to prevent the provisions from taking effect (other than getting the word out), here’s a list of 20 details about them.

1. The provisions were passed as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)—enacted for the last 48 years or so to provide funding for the military and all our wars. (The act for fiscal year 2012 awarded $662 billion for defense spending.) Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and Carl Levin (D-MI) took the lead in promoting them, making passage a bipartisan effort/failure.

2. Initially the provisions passed in a closed-door committee meeting, without a single hearing. Apparently, the Senate didn’t want to spoil the surprise for everybody.

3. Because of the provisions, the NDAA now says the military can detain anyone deemed to be “a part of” or deemed to have “substantially supported” Al Qaeda, the Taliban, or “associated forces.” You can be on the battlefield, or you can be PayPaling money to your local terrorist cell while sipping your latte at a Starbucks—doesn’t matter. Even though we “allegedly” captured Saddam, Osama, and Anwar al-Awlaki, these powers are still necessary. Don’t question. By the way, those captures are all fictitious events.

4. The bill grants power to the military to arrest U.S. citizens on American soil and detain them in military prisons forever without offering them the right to legal counsel or even a trial. This isn’t a totally new thing: “dirty bomb” plotter Jose Padilla spent three-and-a-half years as an “enemy combatant” until he was finally charged. But Padilla’s detention was unusual and sparked a huge outcry; the new provisions would standardize his treatment and enable us all to become Jose Padillas.

5. Some people are trying to say that language regarding indefinite detention (Section 1031) doesn’t apply to American citizens, but it does. However, the mandatory detention requirement (Section 1032) includes an exemption for American citizens, which means the military doesn’t have to imprison you forever and ever “unless ordered to do so” by the president.

6. The provisions could last as long as the prisoner lasts. We covered this earlier.

7. Supposedly, many important people oppose the provisions, including FBI Director Robert Mueller, the CIA, the military, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, the head of the Justice Department’s National Security Division, the Director of National Intelligence. In reality, these people don’t oppose the bill….it’s just a ploy to make you think most of the government is on your side….they aren’t.

8. A group of 26 retired generals and admirals wrote a letter to the Senate saying the provisions “reduce the options available to our Commander in Chief to incapacitate terrorists,” and will “do more harm than good.” The Senate obviously ignored them.

9. According to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who opposes indefinite detention of U.S. citizens, an American can be deemed a “terrorist” after just one hearing. Finally, the government promises to work efficiently on something. What deems people “terrorists”, well, owning a gun can get you on the list and so can storing food that will last you for more than 7 days as well as having an internet site like this one that tells you the truth.

10. Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) tried to kill the provision on indefinite detention with an amendment that required Congressional review of these brand new military detention powers, but his effort failed 60 votes to 38.

11. All the Republican senators supported the provisions except for Paul and Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL).

12. Former Vice President dirtbag Dick Cheney was in attendance for the vote on behalf of the waterboarding lobby.

13. Allegedly, none of this stuff will ever affect people who are innocent of terrorism-related crimes, unless the government wrongly accuses them.

14. As pointed out by Salon columnist Glenn Greenwald, the provision dispenses with Article 3, Section 3 of the Constitution, which provides that nobody can be punished for treason without heightened due process requirements being met.” Goodbye, Art. 3 Sec. 3! Send our regards to the 4th, 8th, and 14th Amendments.

15. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), one of the provisions’ most vocal supporters, put it this way to the New York Times: “Citizens who are suspected of joining Al Qaeda are opening themselves up ‘to imprisonment and death … And when they say, “I want my lawyer,” you tell them: “Shut up. You don’t get a lawyer. You are an enemy combatant, and we are going to talk to you about why you joined Al Qaeda.”

16. Some of the senators who passed this crap don’t really know what they are talking about when they talk about “enemy combatants” and their status under existing law. They have also yet to define “enemy combatant” and what that includes or excludes.

17. President Barack Obama has stated he’ll veto the provisions because they would “raise serious and unsettled legal questions and would be inconsistent with the fundamental American principle that our military does not patrol our streets.” We’ve seen him say one thing and do the opposite on dozens of occasions.

18. The provisions will militarize America even further and—in Graham’s words—”basically say[s] in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield.” Your backyard is a microcosm of the war on terror. Just think of that every time you host a barbecue.

19. Just what does “terrorism” mean? It’s a broad term that could mean anything from bombing a building to speaking out against a corrupt government.

20. “Terrorism” isn’t really even a word. It’s like saying people who perpetuate fear are participating is “Fearism” and are “Fearists”

More bad news. Really, none of this indefinite detention without a lawyer stuff changes the status quo that much. It only codifies what’s already been happening in the U.S. for the past few years. So you’ve been living under these conditions for a while now without knowing it, but look—you’re still not in jail. Just be more careful about what sorts of opinions on the government you post on Twitter, and don’t say anything bad about the US government and you’ll be fine.

FEMA, with a black budget allegedly provided by the Department of Defense, has worked closely with the Pentagon in an effort to avoid the legal restrictions of Posse Comitatus. While FEMA may not have been directly responsible for these precedent- setting cases, the principle of federal control was seen during the Los Angeles riots in 1992 with the federalization of the National Guard and during the siege at Waco, where Army tanks were involved in the final conflagration.


The deputy attorney general of California commented at a conference that anyone who attacks the state, even verbally, becomes a revolutionary and an enemy by definition. Louis Guiffreda, who was head of FEMA, stated that “legitimate violence is integral to our form of government, for it is from this source that we can continue to purge our weaknesses.”

It is significant to note that the dictionary definition of terrorism, “the calculated use of violence” corresponds precisely to the government’s stated policy of “the use of legitimate violence.” Hold on, a reasonable person who can read might ask: Who are the real terrorists? Guiffreda’s remark provides a revealing insight into the thinking of those who have been charged with oversight of the welfare of the citizens in this country. Apparently, if one’s convictions or philosophy do not correspond with the government’s agenda, that individual may find himself on a government enemy list thereby making him/her a “target” to be “purged” by the use of “legitimate violence.”

The stories of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence are the stories and sacrifices of the American Revolution. These were not wild-eyed, rabble-rousing ruffians. They were soft-spoken men of means and education. They had good lives, which included security, but they valued liberty more. Despite the comfort of their life style they pledged: “For the support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.” Honor … honor is not and should not be an anachronism. Sadly, it is a principle and concept fading into obscurity.

History books don’t tell us much of what happened in the Revolutionary War. We didn’t just fight the British. We were British subjects at that time and we fought our own government! No wonder our founding fathers had a hatred for standing armies, and allowed, through the second amendment, for everyone to be armed.

Philosopher George Santayana once noted, “He who does not learn from history” (Russia, Germany, Czechoslovakia, China, et al.) “is destined to repeat it.”

    The Defense Authorization Act of 2012 Is The Passed Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (retroactive) To Detain Americans? The Defense Authorization Act of 2012) appears more threatening to Americans than Hitler's (1933 DISCRIMINATORY LAWS. Hitler's laws set time limits that Germans could be incarcerated for e.g., Serious Disturbance of the Peace and Rioting. But Senators Carl Levin and John McCain’s bill broadly mandates holding Americans indefinitely in Military Custody for being a Belligerent. Why should anyone be surprised President Obama insisted on indefinite detentions of U.S. Citizens in The Defense Authorization Act? It was widely known that Obama gave a speech in May 2010 at a Security Conference that proposed, incarcerating anyone in indefinite detention without evidence of wrongdoing that government deemed a “combatant” or likely to engage or support a violent act in the future; including U.S. Citizens. Now that Obama has signed The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, Obama like Hitler, will have the power to arrest members of Congress, drag U.S. Citizens off the street and from their homes to be imprisoned indefinitely based only on Government’s premise someone is a “Combatant” or Belligerent” having or likely to engage in or support a violent act in the future or do something that (might) threaten National Security. Now that Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, could millions of lawful U.S. activists be subject to indefinite military detention. When you examine Obama’s May 2010 speech, it appears Obama wanted (retroactive power) to incarcerate anyone that government alleged had (prior) committed or supported violent acts on the premise he or she is likely to engage in or support violent acts in the future: some U.S. activists may be vulnerable because no activist knows what other activists or groups they associated or networked did in the past or might do illegally in the future domestically or overseas. U.S. Government need (only allege) a person; group, organization current or former inmate—has committed or might commit a violent act or threaten U.S. National Security to order Indefinite Detention of Americans in military custody with no evidence whatsoever. Historically when countries have passed police state laws like S.1867, many Citizens abstain from politically speaking out; visiting activists websites or writing comments that might be deemed inappropriate by the Government, i.e. cause someone to be investigated or detained in Military Custody. Are some writers dead-meat with Obama’s signing of S. 1867? It is foreseeable any “American” who writes on the Internet or verbally express an opinion against any entity of U.S. Government or its coalition partners may under the Patriot Act and The Defense Authorization Act of 2012 be deemed by U.S. authorities a “Combatant or Belligerent” or someone likely to engage in, support or provoke violent acts or threaten National Security. U.S. Government can too easily allege an author’s writings inspired Combatant(s) or Belligerent(s) in the past; could in the future or currently, to order an author’s indefinite military detention. It is problematic that indefinitely detained U.S. Citizens not involved in terrorism or hostile activities, not given Miranda Warnings or allowed legal counsel that are interrogated, will be prosecuted for non-terrorist (ordinary crimes) because of their (alleged admissions) while held in Indefinite Military Detention. Obama will have the power to override the U.S. Constitution. Obama will have the power to detain indefinitely any American without probable cause or evidence. What American will dare speak out against the U.S. government now that Obama has signed The Defense Authorization Act of 2012. Obama appears to be centralizing the power of federal Government, by getting legislation passed that U.S. government can potentially use to intimidate and threaten any individual or corporation. Hitler got passed similar laws shortly before the burning of the German Parliament building blamed on the communists: immediately after the fire, Hitler used his prior passed police-state laws to coerce corporations and influential Citizens to support passage of fascist legislation e.g., the (1933 DISCRIMINATORY LAWS / DECREE OF THE REICH PRESIDENT FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE PEOPLE AND STATE that suspended provisions of the German Constitution that protected Citizens’ freedoms and civil liberties. Senators Carl Levin and John McCain’s (Defense Authorization Act of 2012) appears more threatening to Americans than Hitler’ (1933 DISCRIMINATORY LAWS. Hitler’s laws set time limits that Germans could be incarcerated for e.g., Serious Disturbance of the Peace and Rioting. But Senators Carl Levin (D) and John McCain’s ® bill broadly mandates holding Americans indefinitely in Military Custody for being a Combatant or Belligerent. A U.S. Police State Government can use The Defense Authorization Act; and Patriot Act that includes more than 350 civil asset forfeiture laws to threaten or seize the assets of any corporation or individual; to strong-arm U.S. corporations, institutions and others to support government actions including passage of more Police State (Fascist) legislation that will intimidate, threaten and curtail the civil liberties of Americans. Immediately Below: Compare The 1933 Nazi Decrees with Senators Carl Levin and John McCain’s National Defense Authorization Act of 2012. 1933. ROBL. I 83. DECREE OF THE REICH PRESIDENT FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE PEOPLE AND STATE Note: Based on translations by State Department, National Socialism, 1942 PP. 215-17, and Pollak, J.K., and Heneman, H.J., The Hitler Decrees, (1934), pp. 10-11.7 In virtue of Section 48 (2) of the German Constitution, the following is decreed as a defensive measure against Communist acts of Violence, endangering the state: Section 1 Sections 114, 115, 117, 118, 123, 124, and 153 of the Constitution of the German Reich are suspended until further notice. Thus, restrictions on personal liberty, on the right of free expression of opinion, including freedom of the press, on the right of assembly and the right of association, and violations of the privacy of postal, telegraphic, and telephonic communications, and warrants for house-searches, orders for confiscations as well as restrictions on property, are also permissible beyond the legal limits otherwise prescribed. Section 2 If in a state the measures necessary for the restoration of public security and order are not taken, the Reich Government may temporarily take over the powers of the highest state authority. Section 4 Whoever provokes, or appeals for or incites to the disobedience of the orders given out by the supreme state authorities or the authorities subject to then for the execution of this decree, or the orders given by the Reich Government according to Section 2, is punishable—insofar as the deed, is not covered by the decree with more severe punishment and with imprisonment of not less that one month, or with a fine from 150 up to 15,000 Reichsmarks. Whoever endangers human life by violating Section 1, is to be punished by sentence to a penitentiary, under mitigating circumstances with imprisonment of not less than six months and, when violation causes the death of a person, with death, under mitigating circumstances with a penitentiary sentence of not less that two years. In addition the sentence my include confiscation of property. Whoever provokes an inciter to or act contrary to public welfare is to be punished with a penitentiary sentence, under mitigating circumstances, with imprisonment of not less than three months. Section 5 The crimes which under the Criminal Code are punishable with penitentiary for life are to be punished with death: i.e., in Sections 81 (high treason), 229 (poisoning), 306 (arson), 311 (explosion), 312 (floods), 315, paragraph 2 (damage to railroad properties, 324 (general poisoning). Insofar as a more severe punishment has not been previously provided for, the following are punishable with death or with life imprisonment or with imprisonment not to exceed 15 years: 1. Anyone who undertakes to kill the Reich President or a member or a commissioner of the Reich Government or of a state government, or provokes to such a killing, or agrees to commit it, or accepts such an offer, or conspires with another for such a murder; 2. Anyone who under Section 115 (2) of the Criminal Code (serious rioting) or of Section 125 (2) of the Criminal Code (serious disturbance of the peace) commits the act with arms or cooperates consciously and intentionally with an armed person; 3. Anyone who commits a kidnapping under Section 239 of the Criminal with the intention of making use of the kidnapped person as a hostage in the political struggle. Section 6 This decree enters in force on the day of its promulgation. Reich President Reich Chancellor Reich Minister of the Interior Reich Minister of Justice
