White House Says It's Unconstitutional To Strike Down The NDAA

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security ..."

White House Says It's Unconstitutional To Strike Down The NDAA

The Obama administration had some harsh words Friday after a federal judge appointed by Obama said the government doesn't have a right to indefinitely detain anyone even remotely associated with terrorist groups.

Judge Katherine B. Forrest permanently blocked the government from enforcing the National Defense Authorization Act, claiming it was too vague and would have a "chilling effect" on free speech.

Shocker: Obama wins back his right to commit treason

http://rt.com/usa/news/obama-lohier-ndaa-stay-414/

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Go figure Obama appointed the guy who overturned the ruling....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond_Lohier, here his BIO! Now you can see the level of corruption involved in the NDAA. I bet $5 the 3 judge panel that will issue the final ruling will be all Obama appointees!

The obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy and economic turmoil to our people.

"Infringes on Obama's power

"Infringes on Obama's power to act as Commander in Chief"

"Unprecedented"

Both strong arguements by the state

Another -strong- argument

"Government has long had the authority to detain anyone..."

Does anyone else read that as "We've already been abusing our power for years, why slow us down now?"

yes

My first impression exactly...

Of course they do.

Both parties are working to make this a democratic dictatorship as this video explains.

When is the military going to "take down" Obama?

Obviously law enforcement is not up to doing their job. Obama is a traitor and a fraud.

And who will replace him?

.

Joe - bend over for Israel whenever possible - Biden?

or

Hillary - death and destruction makes me horny - Clinton?

Be Careful

What you wish for.

Judge Forrest is such a hero!

:)

Beautiful!

So when does William Millay

go back home to Owensboro, Kentucky? He is being held indefinitely without trial on nebulous charges of espionage, but has not even been formally charged. His lawyer has said he's innocent. There hasn't been anything in the press about him for almost a full year. He disappeared in November of 2011.

What about William Millay?

Thank You

Judge Katherine B. Forrest.

She may even now be considered a terrorist!

just love how the magic words of "Our Dear Leader" can change the meaning of the Constitution without even a fact to support it. :\

Let me see if it works for me: The Constitution now says that it's constitutional to give me unlimited power and money.........waiting.........Damn it, didn't work.

I wish I had that power, LOL!!! I'd be a quadratrillionar!!

how about not creating

how about not creating ambiguous and unnecessary acts like this in the first place when there are far more important things to fix in this country?

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

Please help me with this, I am confused.

My understanding with the NDAA is that we are talking about “US Citizens” indefinite detention. Obama said he signed the statement with the legislation saying he would not use this power, but Congress wanted it and he wanted to fund the military so he signed and figured it would get worked out in the courts. I thought this was even what Obama said in the Ben Swann interview.

This article states “anyone” and leaves it at that, giving a different impression. Do I not understand what the lawsuit was about specifically? What am I missing?

That's because it does mean everyone.

And Harry Reid on the floor outed Obama and his administration as the ones who were pushing for the language to be vague to where it could include even US citizens. He then did a little dance pretending he wasn't going to sign it, then did another dance when he said he wouldn't use it. It has already been used on several occasions.

He's a piece of shit liar just like 99% of the rest are.

Thank you and that is how I remember it.

Ok, so my confusion for the "everyone" was due to someone asking me about it and they thought/assumed it meant everyone, not including US citizens because they thought there would be no way this would have applied to a US citizen in the first place. Which is our problem with it.

Brain translation problem...lol. Thanks again. But I think as my friend was confused (and in turn then me) if these articles put in US citizen no matter who you are, we might see a few more people going ...oh wait a minute. Thanks again.
