Obama Regains His Power to Enslave the Serfs Indefinitely as Granted in the NDAA 2012, Upon Appeal!Submitted by freedom express on Thu, 07/18/2013 - 15:06
I continue to hear Mark Levin of late, ranting on how we need 'real' Conservative leadership in government to reestablish the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, but I don't see his name, nor any other so-called 'conservatives' in this challenge to the unconstitutional NDAA 2012. As a matter of fact, these are supposed to be the 'liberals' he and his cohort radio-hacks claim to be the enemy destroying our Constitution! I normally detest listening to the 'ungreat Amerikan' Levin, but since I have seen many on this site being manipulated with his Con-Con theory, I figured I need to see what the master of 'bait and switch' is up to. No damn good, as I suspected, but he's good at slipping in the 'switch', better than Nutjob Beck. If I wasn't trained to the fraud they sell, it's difficult to catch his game.
The Obama administration has won the latest battle in their fight to indefinitely detain US citizens and foreigners suspected of being affiliated with terrorists under the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012.
Congress granted the president the authority to arrest and hold individuals accused of terrorism without due process under the NDAA, but Mr. Obama said in an accompanying signing statement that he will not abuse these privileges to keep American citizens imprisoned indefinitely. These assurances, however, were not enough to keep a group of journalists and human rights activists from filing a federal lawsuit last year, which contested the constitutionality of Section 1021, the particular provision that provides for such broad power.
A federal judge sided with the plaintiffs originally by granting an injunction against Section 1021, prompting the Obama administration to request an appeal last year. On Wednesday this week, an appeals court in New York ruled in favor of the government and once again allowed the White House to legally indefinitely detain persons that fit in the category of enemy combatants or merely provide them with support.
