Federal Judge Kathleen Forrest grants a preliminary injunction against unconstitutional NDAA act
Republicans and Democrats passed the unconstitutional NDAA act late last year with very little press coverage. Obama signed the unconstitutional law into effect on New Year Eve, again without much coverage by the corrupt media. Now, according to the Western Center for Journalism, Federal Judge Kathleen Forrest grants a preliminary injunction against the NDAA law because of Section 012 which grants the US Military to exercise police powers on American soil
Signed very quietly into law on New Year’s Eve, the controversial Act has been roundly criticized as unconstitutional by groups on both the political left and right. Of greatest concern was Section 1021, which grants the United States military authority to exercise police powers on American soil. Upon order of the president and at his sole discretion, agents of the military are empowered to detain “until the end of hostilities” anyone the president believes to have “substantially supported” al Qaeda, the Taliban, or “associated forces.”
Judge Forrest concluded that the Section “…failed to ‘pass Constitutional muster’ because its broad language could be used to quash political dissent.” In a statement clearly directed to lawmakers, she added, ”Section 1021 tries to do too much with too little – it lacks the minimal requirements of definition and scienter that could easily have been added, or could be added, to allow it to pass constitutional muster.”
Democrat Senator Carl Levin, it was Obama himself who demanded American citizens be included under the detention law and that the President have exclusive authority to invoke the statute.
