NDAA on trial: White House refuses to abide with ban against indefinite detention of Americans

Not only is the White House fighting in court for the power to jail Americans indefinitely without trial, but the Obama administration is refusing to tell a federal judge if they’ve abided by an injunction that prohibits them from such.

Attorneys for the White House have been in-and-out of court in Manhattan this week to argue that the indefinite detention provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, or NDAA, are necessary for the safety and security of the nation.

When President Barack Obama signed the bill on December 31, he granted the government the power to put any American away in jail over even suspected terrorist ties, but federal court Judge Katherine Forrest ruled in May that this particular part of the NDAA, Section 1021, failed to pass constitutional muster and ordered a temporary injunction.

On Monday, White House attorneys asked for an appeal for that injunction so that they’d be once more legally permitted to indefinitely detain anyone over mere accusations.

When specifically asked to answer whether or not they’ve adhered by Judge Forrest’s injunction so far, though, administration attorneys refused to cooperate with the questioning.

Activist and reporter Tangerine Bolen is a plaintiff in the case against the NDAA, and in an op-ed published Thursday in the Daily Cloudt, she writes that the federal attorneys asking for an appeal have declined to reveal whether or not they’ve cooperated with the judge’s May 2012 injunction.

If the government has arrested anyone over alleged “belligerent ties” since Judge Forrest ordered a temporary stay, the government could be in contempt of court.

“Obama’s attorneys refused to assure the court, when questioned, that the NDAA’s section 1021 – the provision that permits reporters and others who have not committed crimes to be detained without trial – has not been applied by the US government anywhere in the world after Judge Forrest’s injunction,” Tangerine tells Daily Cloudt. “In other words, they were telling a US federal judge that they could not, or would not, state whether Obama’s government had complied with the legal injunction that she had laid down before them.”

In its original form, the NDAA allows the military hold anyone accused of having substantially supported” al-Qaeda, the Taliban or “associated forces until “the end of hostilities” and indefinitely imprison anyone who commits a “belligerent act” against the United States, yet fails to explicitly define what is constituted as such.

In her injunction, Judge Forrest said, “In the face of what could be indeterminate military detention, due process requires more.”

“An individual could run the risk of substantially supporting or directly supporting an associated force without even being aware that he or she was doing so,” the judge ruled.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges is also a plaintiff in the case and along with Tangerine warns that his own investigative work could be construed by the government to put him away in prison for life.

“I have had dinner more times than I can count with people whom this country brands as terrorists,” Hedges wrote earlier this year, but that does not make me one.”

Carl Mayer, an attorney representing the plaintiffs in the case, told RT that he expected the White House to appeal the judge’s injunction, but that he considered it a lost cause.

[W]e are suggesting that it may not be in their best interest because there are so many people from all sides of the political spectrum opposed to this law that they ought to just say, ‘We’re not going to appeal,’ Mayer said.

Mayer stated that, because of the injunction, “The NDAA cannot be used to pick up Americans in a proverbial black van or in any other way that the administration might decide to try to get people into the military justice system. It means that the government is foreclosed now from engaging in this type of action against the civil liberties of Americans.” 

Now, however, the White House wants the power to be once more restored.

Outside of federal court on Thursday, Hedges appeared pleased, Courthouse News reports.

“It didn’t appear to me by the end that [the government] had any argument to stand on,” Hedges said. “The judge eviscerated them.”

Even with the injunction still standing, though, the government has yet to admit if it’s adhering to Judge Forrest’s ruling.

‘Netanyahu, Barak mulling fall strike on Iran’

======================================================================

{XANIEL’S NOTE : I feel the comment by Mike Rivero or his wife?, (as they seldom sign their names to comments),

make part of my point ! 

===========

There is only one, slight, minor problem with this (fall strike): Israeli elections are scheduled on the 4th on September, so Netanyahu and Barak would have to do such an attack before that time, and the Knesset needs to be dissolved so that all members will have “plausible deniability” regarding the strike. 

This next election could well remove Netanyahu and Barak from power, so let’s see: they have precisely 24 days from today to get this war off and truly running. 

The big and ugly question, of course, is what they are willing to do to get this going.~~ Mike or Wife Rivero of WRH.com

===========

(Xaniel’s further comment : It seems crystal clear that nobody in Israel, 

(Israeli state official, military official, the president or most of it’s citizens),

wants this attack on Iran, especially on nothing more than speculation of  Iranian WMD’s.

Of course I mean other then Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak.

Who both seem ‘ Hell-Bent for Leather ‘  to get ‘ ISRAEL DESTROYED ‘, by the counter-measures that will come from such a reckless,

yet deliberate campaign. (And with or without U.S. involvement)

Is this what all the war-mongering is really about ?

Is this the true plan of  ‘ The Elite ‘ ??

Is Israel to be some kind of  ‘ Sacrificial Lamb ‘ in some psychopathic ‘ Elite Ritual ‘ to satisfy ‘ Demonic or Otherwise Negative Masters ‘.

Do they have no choice but to do this sick and tragic thing in a desperate attempt that they HOPE will help keep them in power ?

Maybe we should ALL take a closer look into the possible true motives/agenda that is happening here.

And we had best do it before they act on their ‘ Lust For Innocent Blood ‘ !!}~~~Xaniel777

 Yedioth Ahronoth says PM, defense minister said to be in favor of striking Tehran’s nuclear facilities before US elections in November despite IDF’s objections

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak advocate an attack of Iran‘s nuclear facilities in the upcoming fall, Yedioth Ahronoth’s senior commentators Nahum Barnea and Shimon Shiffer reported Friday.

According to Barnea and Shiffer, “Not a single state official or military official or even the president – supports an Israeli attack in Iran.”

Netanyahu, Barak. Attack in the fall? (Photo: Eliad Levy)

Barnea and Shiffer referred to the fact that advisors from both the PM’s office and the White House are aware of the possibility that an Israeli action just before the elections might cause an embarrassment to Obama’s administration and advance his Republican opponent Mitt Romney.

 “In America, many, including government officials, are convinced that the military action that Netanyahu and Barack are promoting is set to cause one thing – force America into a war with Iran against its will. Israel will need the Americans’ help”, Barnea and Shiffer wrote.

According to Yedioth Ahronoth, Barak admits it is clear that Iran will respond to an attack on its nuclear facilities, also by utilizing Hezbollah.

This will result in casualties and fatalities and every day of fighting will cost NIS 1.5 billion (approx. $375 million)

Still, the defense minister further argues that Israel “will not be destroyed” and that such an operation will not make Israel hated across the globe.

In Barak’s opinion, those in the IDF who oppose an attack in Iran are afraid of a commission of inquiry.

Barak therefore made it clear that everyone against an attack is free to resign.

LePage Threatens RNC Boycott

 

From The Tipping Point

By Mike Tipping – August 10, 2012

Paul Lepage - from official Facebook page

Last week, Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign challenged the seating of Maine’s delegates to the Republican National Convention, suggesting that the takeover of the state Party convention by Ron Paul supporters had resulted in voter fraud during their selection.

This week, the Ron Paul contingent rejected a compromise offer made by Maine GOP Chair Charlie Webster in an attempt to end the conflict and seat the delegates.

The agreement would have bound the delegates to voting for Romney and prevented them from voicing certain opinions publicly.

Tea Party leader and Ron Paul delegate Pete “The Carpenter” Harring even took to YouTube fully-eagled to speak out against the proposal.

Today, conservative talk show host Ray Richardson announced on Faceboook that Governor Paul LePage, the only elected member of the delegation not challenged by Romney’s supporters, has announced that he will boycott the convention if the Ron Paul delegates are not seated.

From Richardson’s post:

The Governor of Maine, Paul LePage, in a conversation five minutes ago said that if they do not seat the Maine Delegation at the RNC, he will not go. These folks need to be seated.

The Governor gave me explicit permission to make this public.

This declaration ups the ante in this conflict and, if the challenge to the delegates is not resolved amicably before they arrive in Tampa, will likely make the Maine disagreement into national news.

An aside: Interesting that it was Peter Cianchette who filed the challenge.

He’s a former state representative, gubernatorial candidate and U.S. Ambassador and this action would seem to preclude a political future for him in Maine’s new Tea Party-fueled GOP.

Third Party Time?

=========================================================

{XANIEL’S NOTE : I,  myself, have mentioned several times,

that we needed a new Party and the named of that Party should be called ‘ THE CONSTITUTIONAL PARTY ‘ !

This Party will be made of ‘ HONOR, ETHICS and MORALITY  ‘,

you knowthe direct opposite of everything our current, corrupt and treasonous  Government is right now.

Oddly enough, someone had already started a similar one called, ‘ The Constitution Party ‘, and it was founded in 1991, go figure !

Both Democrats and Republicans are to blame America’s  systemic corruption and both keep denying it and blaming the other, so is it 3rd party time yet?

However nothing can stop stop Congress from going on vacation – this is something both establishment party members agree upon.

So may be it’s time for new faces on the political scene?

DHS Preparing Oklahoma City Type False Flag Before November Elections?

 

From the Trenches World Report

Posted on August 10, 2012 by REDHORSE

Occupying Corporatism – by Susanne Posel 

Recently the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) placed a solicitation by way of the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) for 700 pounds of High Density Ammonium Nitrate and 700 pounds of A-5 Flake RDX.

With the delivery date scheduled for August 31, 2012, could DHS be planning a false flag attack involving a planted home-made bomb?

When creating a “makeshift terrorist bomb” ammonium nitrate is an integral ingredient.

The DHS was given oversight of procurement of ammonium nitrate after Congress requested they “regulate the sale and transfer of ammonium nitrate by an ammonium nitrate facility…to prevent the misappropriation or use of ammonium nitrate in an act of terrorism.”

The Ammonium Nitrate Security Program focuses on preventing a terrorist attack by use of ammonium nitrate in a home-made bomb by requiring that its sale and those that purchase it be registered with the DHS.

Purchasers are screened against the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB).

In the solicitation , the DHS did not specify information that a corporation seeking to reply with a bid would need.

In addition, DHS is requesting that high density ammonium nitrate and RDX (the required booster) be delivered to an undisclosed governmentfacility in downtown Atlantic City, NJ.

The Pentagon has come before Congress decrying that domestic terrorist attacks may increase with the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in the US.

They are asking Congress to lay aside Posse Comitatus (PCA) in an effort to increase their use of military on the streets of America.

Citing James Holmes’ apartment and use of home-made bombs, Army Lt. Gen. Michael Barbero told Congress that the threat “from both homegrown terrorists and global threat networks is real and presents a significant security challenge for the United States and our international partners.”

Strangely enough during the initial response to the Sikh shooting in Wisconsin, the police department arrived at the scene in tactical gear, armed with assault weapons in armored vehicles; including the police bomb unit (which Milwaukee County sheriff’s spokesperson Fran McLaughlin said she was not clear as to why the bomb unit were called to the scene).

In India, an estimated 3,500 tons of ammonium nitrate simply goes missing from Indian ports without a clue from local law enforcement as to where or who has stolen the explosive component which is preferred when making home-made bombs.

Ammonium nitrate was used in conjunction with nitromethane racing fuel (which is essentially jet fuel) when the 7,000 pound truck bomb was created for the OklahomaCity bombing.

In this instance, domestic terrorist Timothy McVeigh was blamed for the bombing that was a false flag attack on American citizens in the name of gun control.

Back in 2010, Mark Penn who worked as an influential advisor to former President Clinton told Chris Matthews on Hardball that, “President Clinton reconnected through Oklahoma, right?

And the president right now seems removed.

It wasn’t until that speech [after the bombing] that [Clinton] really clicked with the American public.

Obama needs a similar” defining moment.

Robert Shapiro, writing for the Financial Times said a similar comment: “The bottom line here is that Americans don’t believe in President Obama’s leadership.

He has to find some way between now and November of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can’t think of how he could do that.”

In 2011, the DHS surprisingly “stepped back from conducting intelligence and analysis of home-grown extremism”

By orders of the Obama administration, based on an intelligence report on Rightwing Extremism , the threat proposed by law enforcement by domestic terrorists has fallen on deaf ears.

According to the report, the failing economy combined with Obama’s re-election could create “violent radicalization”.

Terms like “white supremacist” have come to light as a possible direction of domestic terror incidents.

Mike Sena, intelligence official for the National Fusion Center Association believes that focusing on extremists is lacking in the DHS and must be more of a focal point.

One of the biggest proponents of having the DHS look deeper into “other types of terrorist groups” is the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

In the recent Sikh shooting , Wade Michael Page was touted as a “frustrated neo-Nazi” white supremacist by the SPLC.

The SPLC states that Page, supposed front man for the white supremacist rock band, “also attempted to purchase goods from the neo-Nazi National Alliance, then America’s most important hate group.”

The Batman and Sikh shootings are connected in ways that point to covert operationsthat go beyond the rescinding of our 2nd Amendment.

James Holmes had IEDs, home-made bombs, while Wade Michael Page was a white supremacist.

Both of these issues are being brought up in Senate committee meetings by members of DHS, the Pentagon and other federal agencies wherein they are being used to set the stage for something . . .

The MSM are disseminating the propaganda needed to place in the social meme that domestic terrorists who are part of extremist groups and are building home-made bombs are the next Boogeyman.

From the Obama administration to DHS to the false flag shootings – something much bigger is coming and right now we are being prepared for it.
