NDAA Enjoined!

The NDAA has been enjoined, which is an excellent shot in the arm for freedom fighters everywhere. Linked below the excerpt is a rather in depth article on this inspriring event!

MANHATTAN (CN) – A federal judge granted a preliminary injunction late Wednesday to block provisions of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act that would allow the military to indefinitely detain anyone it accuses of knowingly or unknowingly supporting terrorism.
     Signed by President Barack Obama on New Year’s Eve, the 565-page NDAA contains a short paragraph, in statute 1021, letting the military detain anyone it suspects “substantially supported” al-Qaida, the Taliban or “associated forces.” The indefinite detention would supposedly last until “the end of hostilities.”
     In a 68-page ruling blocking this statute, U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest agreed that the statute failed to “pass constitutional muster” because its broad language could be used to quash political dissent.
     “There is a strong public interest in protecting rights guaranteed by the First Amendment,” Forrest wrote. “There is also a strong public interest in ensuring that due process rights guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment are protected by ensuring that ordinary citizens are able to understand the scope of conduct that could subject them to indefinite military detention.” (read it all here)

We are in the last week of state legislative session here in Missouri. Then we have the primary in August, and since the races that are of largest concern in my area are really being held in the primary, things should mellow out a little bit then.

I just wanted to share the happy news about the NDAA! Please pass it around and let folks know that while it isn’t dead, it is in a state of suspension for now!

    In some ways this is irrelevant. They have a thousand other laws that legalize them raping us, and a dozen executive orders. In the end it does not matter, as I believe they will rape us whether it is legal or not. Look at their past actions. We are talking about a huge criminal gang that has been brought into power by a majority of clueless Christians in this country.
