Remember Obama? You know, the Nobel Prize winner….Constitutional Scholar….right, that guy.
Well, we says that it’s unconstitutional for a federal judge to strike down a law that allows any ole President to drag away an Amerikan citizen and deprive him of Due Process rights.
Well, Professor Obama was apparently correct because an Appeals Court judge overturned Judge Forrest’s ruling that found the NDAA unconstitutional…..
On Monday, September 17, on the 225th anniversary of the signing of the final draft of the Constitution, with a one-page order a lone appeals court judge effectively repealed many of that document’s fundamental protections of individual liberties.
Issued late Monday night, the order written by Judge Raymond Lohier of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals temporarily set aside a lower court’s injunction blocking indefinite detention provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The practical effect of Judge Lohier’s stay is the immediate reinstatement of the president’s authority to send the military to apprehend and indefinitely imprison a person suspected of colluding with a terrorist organization to threaten U.S. national security.
In the order, Judge Lohier offered no explanation for his decision, preferring to postpone publishing any opinion until the matter is thoroughly reviewed by the Second Circuit.
