NDAA raises its ugly head once more. While Obama is partying away, our very freedom is on the line and no one reports this. It is much more important for him to talk to the “”Pimp with a Limp” and have the media focus on Romney’s latest reveal. To add to this, after every agency in the government was buying ammo by the boatload, DHS purchases 200 million more rounds of ammunition Sickening totally. Why is the government buying so much ammo?
Our earlier Obama fights injunction against unlawful detainment of Americans, talks about how we got the first win. Now it was just overturned. Now it has been re-instated. Check out the above link for the back story with a video of Carl Levin reporting that Obama insisted that it include Americans indefinite detention without due process. From the earlier post:
Incredibly,when pressed on the issue, this Obama mouthpiece suggested to Judge Forrest that concerns about the president’s detention powers were excessive as American citizens would,after all,have the ability to file a writ of habeas corpus should they be illegally or improperly jailed! “How long does [such a] petition take,” asked Forrest? When Torrance refused to answer,the Judge continued,“Several years,right”?
So not only did Obama’s attorney lie about his Marxist boss’s corrupt intentions;he actually claimed that the abuse of American citizens was somehow acceptable because those unconstitutionally imprisoned might ask that the charges against them be produced after ONLY a few years behind bars!
Late Monday night a federal judge in New York, Raymond Lohier, granted the Obama administration an “emergency” stay that temporarily blocks a ruling by U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest last week blocking the NDAA.
“Lohier offered no explanation or rationale for the temporary stay. However, the Justice Department has asked the appeals court to block the injunction,” Politico reported late last night.
The Obama administration characterized the ruling by Forrest as unconstitutional.
The Justice Department said the ruling was “unprecedented” and argued that the executive has the right under the Constitution to detain anyone indefinitely without due process. The Fifth Amendment specifically mentions due process of law.
“This pernicious law poses one of the greatest threats to civil liberties in our nation’s history,” writes Brian J. Trautman. Under AUMF, “this law can be used by authorities to detain (forever) anyone the government considers a threat to national security and stability – potentially even demonstrators and protesters exercising their First Amendment rights.”
Documents produced by the Department of Homeland Security and fusion centers and subsequently leaked to the media target numerous organizations and individuals as threats to national security — including supporters of Ron Paul, returning veterans, and other “rightwing extremists.” Full Story at Prison Planet.
