Thirty-four year old U.S. citizen Wade Hicks prepared to visit his wife, a Navy lieutenant stationed in Okinawa, Japan, via a military flight. However, after flying to Hawaii and stopping to refuel, Hicks prepared to re-board the plane, but was quickly escorted back off by armed guards. He then was interrogated in a secure room and he was informed that he would not be flying anywhere because his name had turned up on a no-fly list. So Hicks was stranded in Hawaii without a way to get to his wife or back home.
After being asked to get off the plane, “It started out like something fairly routine,” Hicks said in his interview with Infowars. “About 15-20 minutes later, two heavily armed Air Force security forces guys showed up.”
Seemingly the only “crime” Hicks has committed that would end in revocation of his ability to fly is his affiliation with the Mississippi Preparedness Project, a prepper organization. Although prepping is not illegal, the FBI has been cracking down on preppers for awhile now, with everything from spying on people who visit prepper websites to straight up stripping preppers of their Second Amendment rights.
Hicks revealed to Infowars that a supposed disabled veteran claiming to be a Navy Seal had joined his prepper group earlier in the year, but Hicks felt the man’s story seemed suspicious. Through a Freedom of Information Act request, Hicks learned the man had never been in the military even though he possessed an authentic military ID. Sometime later while out driving, Hicks saw the man’s car and ended up tailing him to a Mississippi Department of Homeland Security branch office where the man parked his car.
When asked if he thought his affiliation with a prepper group caused him to get detained, Hicks responded, “If it does, that’s a pretty sad situation.”
So apparently Mr. Hicks only had preparation in his background that would cause his name to be put on a no-fly list and what's even more interesting is that it didn't stop him from catching a military plane to Hawaii!
Hicks is a law abiding citizen and even this has been confirmed by a background check, which was performed by Northeast Intelligence Network.
Senator Rand Paul had previously been detained himself and had warned about incidents such as the one that Hicks finds himself in. Paul stated, "that some day there could be a government in power that is shipping its citizens off for disagreements." He went on to say,
There are laws on the books now that characterize who might be a terrorist.
Someone missing fingers on their hands is a suspect according to the Department of Justice. Someone who has guns, someone who has ammunition that is weatherproofed, someone who has more than seven days of food in their house can be considered a potential terrorist.
If you are suspected by these activities do you want the government to have the ability to send you to Guantanamo Bay for indefinite detention?
My fellow Americans, I receive email from people who think that people like Rand Paul and his father are attempting to hand Barack Obama the election. What they are attempting to do is fight for the Constitution and to warn you of the impending tyranny in our land. These things have nothing to do with the election. They have everything to do with your freedom!
Hicks may not have been sent to Guantanamo, but he was definitely detained without cause, against his will with laws made possible by both the Patriot Act and NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) which both the Democrat and Republican nominees endorse. In fact, Barack Obama signed the NDAA. Mitt Romney confirmed he supports it as written.
The fact is Hicks was assumed guilty and a potential terrorist and enemy to the United States without a trial, formal charge or due process, which he is entitled to under the U.S. Constitution.
It seems that America is becoming more and more the nation where you are guilty until proven innocent, rather than the other way around.
