Appeals Court brings back NDAA “Indefinite Detention”

US Totalitarianism Wins Again As Appeals Court Brings NDAA’s Indefinite Military  Detention Back. While we are looking the other way, Detention is back.

The Second Circuit court has overturned a temporary injunction which had blocked the indefinite detention provision of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) – meaning Americans can now once again be kidnapped and held without trial.

The Tenth Amendment Center has a detailed breakdown of the ruling;

“In layman’s terms, Judge Forrest put a stop to indefinite detention, and the Second Circuit overturned that. It also permanently prohibited Forrest from attempting to do so again, ordering her to proceed with the case consistent with their opinion. NDAA “indefinite detention” powers are alive and well.”

The ruling stems out of Hedges v. Obama, a lawsuit filed in January 2012. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges and several other high profile figures brought the case in order to protest against the potential that the law could be used to harass outspoken journalists and political activists.

“Sadly, the “victory” lasted about 10 months. Today, US totalitarianism wins again,” laments Zero Hedge.

…Yet 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”?

The group points out that the new Second Circuit ruling is completely incorrect because it claims that Section 1021 of the 2012 NDAA says nothing about the government’s ability to detain citizens.

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder’s “three criteria” for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S.

From August, 2012 post: Obama fights injunction against unlawful detention of U.S. citizens

Obama fights the preliminary injunction granted to American Citizens against unlawful imprisonment. But Obama is not through with us yet. They are fighting it big time, and the rationale gets even more creepy. The argument goes something like this, if we are thrown in jail, we can always appeal, even though it may take years to prove our innocence. Guilty until proven otherwise, typical Marxist justice.

On May 16th,federal judge Kathleen Forrest granted a preliminary injunction to plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed against Barack Obama and the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), striking down those sections of the Act that provide the president the power to indefinitely detain American citizens without benefit of their 5th and 6th Amendment rights. As a reminder, keep in mind it was Obama that insisted that the language in the NDAA bill include Citizens:  Obama lies-he insisted that detention of Americans be in defense bill

“But… It was his administration that insisted that the language be included in the bill”.

From the video: Senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.) told Congress recently that under the original wording of the National Defense Authorization Act, American citizens were excluded from the provision that allowed for detention. Once Obama’s officials saw the text though, says Levin, “the administration asked us to remove the language which says that US citizens and lawful residents would not be subject to this section.”

    Apathy reigns–until that late night “door knockdown” and folks are wondering where YOU disappeared to–then it will be TOO LATE to care.

    I have to be honest, I didn’t realize it was gone, but knowing that now I am not surprised an appeals court brought it back! The most troubling aspect about this to me is the fact that the Tea Party led House approved this in the first place, there is nobody in Washington whom we can trust!

      They are now working on NDAA 2013. Just as draconian and no one is addressing this. I will try and post on it but frankly there is little interest in these posts.

        It doesn’t seem to matter who’s elected [? if votes are real anymore] or put in, just another facade, orchestrated by the globalist machine – setting up for their world ruler. If America is destroyed the way they want it, then the whole world most likely follows.
        But, the good news: the “US debt stays the same now for 56 days” … ‘well that’s what they’re saying!!!’ I thinking cancelling WH tours, Marine fireworks and things like that have probably helped alot! (Naught, just more lies).

        It is surreal what has happened to us. All of this in just a handful of years.
