From RT News

"A lone appeals judge bowed down to the Obama administration late Monday and reauthorized the White House’s ability to indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or due process." - RT NEWS

ACLU from the day Obama signed the NDAA of 2012- “President Obama's action today is a blight on his legacy because he will forever be known as the president who signed indefinite detention without charge or trial into law,” said Anthony D. Romero, ACLU executive director. “The statute is particularly dangerous because it has no temporal or geographic limitations, and can be used by this and future presidents to militarily detain people captured far from any battlefield. The ACLU will fight worldwide detention authority wherever we can, be it in court, in Congress, or internationally.”

The Congress is corrupt for passing this law. Obama is corrupt for singing it and appealing for it.



Read the Rules

Another on target and extremely newsworthy post!

It's amazing that after the NDAA was passed President Obama wrote, “In particular, I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists.”

Now those same provisions he had reservations about that were overturned, he is now trying to uphold? I just don't see how a person with any common sense could support Obama after seeing him trample on our most fundamental constitutional rights.

I cannot figure out what has happened to this country. It's really sad to me.

you can figure it out - you are old enough that you watched most of it happen! black people going in the back door, kennedy trying to kill castro with poisoned cigars, viet cong rowing to california to rape your sister, - all hell breaking loose with long haired freaks shouting "hey, hey lbj, how many kids you kill today" and the heavy weight champ saying "no viet cong ever called me nigger - my enemy is right here in this country!" then morning in america - on to clinton and bush and obama - it is all a straight line to hell - ok - sorry - i got carried away - again!

it's still 'We the people', right?

That's what it is suppose to be, and the fact that it isn't is why we are all here.

You don't believe in Obama? Are you an anti-dem partisan?

Stalin is laughing from the grave... It completely violates multiple Constitutional Amendments. There is a difference between voicing an opinion and committing treason. There are already rules for dealing with treason.

Remember 'Radio Free Europe'? Now we need 'Radio Free USA'.

Since we have been engaged in a war on poverty, does that mean the military can begin locking up 1%ers that pay less than living wage since they are domestic offenders and they provide material support to the opposition of the US war on poverty?

Dennis Kucinich in congress on NDAA - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AENPHDM9IoQ

"This authorizes unlimited war anywhere in the world. It gives the president and future presidents unchecked power. It authorizes the military to indefinitely detain US citizens without charge or trial. It takes a wrecking ball to the constitution." - Dennis Kucinich vote NO

Voting third party. Obama had a chance to do great things, but did terrible things.

While I don't support the law, I found this section which does allow it: The Suspension Clause of the United States Constitution specifically included the English common law procedure in Article One, Section 9, clause 2, which demands that "The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it." -- Wikipedia/Copy of Constitution

Another anti-dem partisan post!

We need to protest so that the 99% progressive candidates like Obama are made to work for OWS!
