Call Obama Campaign Headquarters

December 26, 2011
Action Alert for Dec. 27, 2011

Thanks to your calls, the White House Comment Lines have been busy. If you have not called the President yet, please call at (202) 456-111.

Considering that the President is in campaign mode, he is likely listening to his campaign managers, and they might be easier to reach than the White House. Call them at (312) 698-3670.

President Obama hasn't signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) yet, so let's tell him to do the right thing.

Muslim Peace Coalition USA is proud to have mobilized the country against this unjust and unconstitutional "law" while organizations with a budget of millions of dollars were silent.

Call today at (312) 698-3670.

Please call President Obama's campaign office today at (312) 698-3670. If you have not called the White House yet, please call there as well.

Say that you would like to speak to the officer in charge. Once that person is on the phone, ask his name and rank and write it down before you start talking to him. If you can, you should try to get hold of any of the following officers:

Jim Messina (Campaign Manager)
David Axelrod (Communications)
Julianna Smoot (Deputy Campaign Manager)
Jennifer O'Malley Dillon (Deputy Campaign Manager)

Tell him/her this:
You have voted for Obama in 2008 (if you have, otherwise skip this line)
You still respect the president. However, tell him how disappointed you are on the constant violations of the Bill of Rights, secret evidence, etc.

Ask him/her this:
Ask them what their boss' name is and what his/her phone number is.
Ask if you can talk to him/her.
If not, tell him/her that you would like him to write down your message for him/her to pass on.
President Obama to veto indefinite detention provisions in NDAA 2012 bill.
Tell him you may not vote for president if he does not.

If possible, locate the local phone number of an Obama office in your state and have them pass it on as well.

Background:
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) passed by the Congress sitting on President Obama's desk for signature, contains dangerous provisions which were passed in the early days of Nazi Germany and invoke the memories of Japanese Detention camps in America. According to these provisions the U.S. military, not your police or FBI, is authorized to detain anyone including the U.S. citizens from the U.S. soil indefinitely without a trial or even a charge merely based on unproven suspicion.

The FBI, the CIA and the Defense Department opposed these provisions. Many Senators tried to exclude U.S. citizens but failed. Here is a New York Times editorial. Here is a thorough answer to those who believe the bill is not that bad. Here is an ACLU alert.

Action Alert Issued on Dec 21, 2011

President Obama has not signed the National Defense Authorization Act yet. That spells opportunity.
The President’s intention to sign a bill
enshrining indefinite detention into U.S. law is provoking unprecedented rage throughout America. A New York Times editorial says:

President Obama came into office pledging his dedication to the rule of law and to reversing the Bush-era policies. He has fallen far short.

This pressure may be giving the former professor o...

Action Alert


Dec. 9, 2011

The Senate has passed a version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that includes a dangerous provision authorizing the U.S. military to pick up and imprison civilians — including Americans — without charge or trial, anywhere in the world, including in your own backyard. The provisions were negotiated by a few senators — in secret — and without proper Congressional review. The House of Representatives earlier passed its own version of the NDAA that authorizes worldwide war, and worldwide indefinite detention, even within America itself. And now, the House and Senate are meeting in secret to write a final version and find a way to rush this outrageous affront to our constitutional rights to President Obama's desk.

Action Requested:

1) Ask President Obama fulfill his promise by vetoing the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) 2012 if it includes provisions to detain civilians and citizens indefinitely without a trial.

2) Tell your members of Congress to vote NO on the NDAA if it contains indefinite detention without charge or trial.
