Judge strikes down NDAA, rules Obama must obey Constitution
Coach is Right ^ | 5/19/2012 | Doug Book

In a considerable setback for a president eager to ravage the due process rights of the American people, Federal Judge Kathleen Forrest granted a preliminary injunction on Wednesday, striking down those sections of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2012 which sought to provide Barack Obama the power to indefinitely detain citizens without benefit of their 5th Amendment rights.

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.” (1)

Judge Forrest concluded that the Section “…failed to ‘pass Constitutional muster’ because its broad language could be used to...

The big thing is police powers for the military. That makes the army his own personal army. Obama is one sick b******.

So it seems on the surface we have ONE Federal judge who read and understood the Constitution.

Were are all the hacks in Congress? Have they all been given the Public School phony Constitution 101 brainwashing?

Obama is going to have to come up with some other way to turn America into his own private police state.

But this is good news that this judge stopped this marxist villain Obama.

In its 2nd term Obaama will install hundreds more Marxist judges and 3 more marxist supreme court justices who will allow Obama to destroy the U.S..

Yeah this Maxist Clown Obama is worse than Chavez imo. It needs to be defeated.

Obama has piled on 5 trillion in debt on us, has let in illegals, sent our jobs to China. Obama has greatly increased the size, power and tyranny of the government so that government can now harass and impeded individuals and businesses more than ever before. Obama is even trying to censor the Internet with ACTA. These are just a few off the top of my head. I have a few 100 more.

A lot of tyrannical things empowering the president get through congress because congress is populated by 535 people who just know they will be president one day soon.

Don't know, doesn't matter. It would be a lie - unless he said that they want to have complete control over the people.

“I still want to know why Boehner allowed this through the House. “

You’re kidding? Right?

The “opposition” party ALWAYS goes along with the power grab. Because next time, its their turn with the new toy.

Flyover Country always gets rolled....and just never quite seems to catch on.

“I still want to know why Boehner allowed this through the House.”

“Allowed it???” Hell, only a handful of Republicans voted against it!!! It was the same in the Senate where it passed by something like 92-7! Every congressman who might have had any doubts was scared to death of being portrayed as weak on terrorism! So we have our Constitutional rights trampled so our fearless elected officials can play politics!

“Obama is one sick b******.”

As are the entire House and Senate that voted for it, including nearly all Republicans and Democrats. Do you really think there are really two parties?

Amazing, isn't it? This was a Republican bill. Obama was rumored to be about to veto it. Yet everyone here is shocked and blames it on Obama. This is what Fox News and talk radio have done to conservatism. It's all trivial stuff like Reverend Wright and gay marriage while the Constitution is shredded. I have special contempt for Mark Levin, because he should be all over this. But he doesn't want to offend his yahoo affiliates by appearing weak on those scary terrorists.

I’m sort of interested why Boehner is failing to go after fast & furious.
Why he allowed the debt ceiling to raise?
Why he allows obammy to spend my money without congress voting on it after all don’t they control the purse?
Why has he allowed these “czars”?
Why why why there Senore’ Boehner???

Thanks Oldpuppymax.
...the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2012... 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."
In that case Zero should have been out on the White House lawn with a megaphone in his hand, shouting, "Come out of there with my hands up!"
