I called my Senator in Missouri and asked him about the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act mentioned on page one of the February issue of The Bob Livingston Letter. The Senator said that an amendment had been put into place that states this Act will not be enforced on U.S. citizens unless some type of crime of treason had been committed. I would like to know the truth.
First, the bill has not been amended. Attempts at amendments have been voted down. Second, there is no need for a treason provision in the bill as treason is specifically dealt with in the Constitution. Not to put too fine a point on it, but the Senator is a liar.
