JUSTICE SCALIA: AMERICANS WILL BE DETAINED IN FEMA CAMPS…..


obama-smirk-600

The U.S. government has already made clear in numerous official documents and announcements that its war on terror is increasingly focused on its own domestic political enemies. If you’re conservative, Christian, a gun-owner, have expressed disapproval of your government in any way, a veteran, homeschool your kids, etc.,….well, this includes you.

As we reported in an earlier post from last year, FEMA just ordered $1 billion in coffin liners, millions of ready-to-eat meals and body bags.

The camps have been prepared – and it isn’t hard to see who they intend to fill them with.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia (shown) made headlines nationwide this week after bluntly telling law students at the University of Hawaii that internment camps to detain Americans would eventually return. Acknowledging that the infamous Supreme Court-approved internment of Japanese-Americans in wretched camps during World War II was wrong, the conservative-leaning justice followed up by adding that “you are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again.” In “times of war,” Scalia said, citing a Latin expression attributed to Cicero, “the laws fall silent.”

According to the Associated Press, which first reported the explosive February 3 statements, Scalia was responding to a question about one of the Supreme Court’s most widely criticized decisions. Amid national hysteria following the Japanese regime’s attack on Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued an “executive order” in 1942 purporting to justify the mass detention of people of Japanese ancestry — the vast majority of whom were U.S. citizens. In 1944, the high court upheld the convictions of two men for failing to report to an internment camp in Korematsu v. United States.

“Well of course Korematsu was wrong. And I think we have repudiated in a later case,” Scalia was quoted as telling students and faculty during a lunchtime question and answer session. “But you are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again.” Pointing to the Latin expression about laws falling silent during war-time, the longest-serving justice said, “That’s what was going on — the panic about the war and the invasion of the Pacific and whatnot.”

“That’s what happens,” Scalia continued. “It was wrong, but I would not be surprised to see it happen again, in time of war. It’s no justification, but it is the reality.” In other words, one of the nation’s top judicial officials believes that during a “time of war,” Americans run the risk of being unconstitutionally rounded up by the federal government and detained in camps like over 110,000 almost certainly innocent Japanese-descent individuals during World War II.

Keep in mind that the U.S. government is currently engaged in multiple unconstitutional wars, including many that could potentially go on indefinitely — especially the “terror” war, which now spans across the “Homeland” and the entire planet. Incredibly, buried inside the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), Congress and the president have even approved a statute pretending to legalize the indefinite detention of Americans without charges, trial, due process, or any other constitutionally guaranteed rights.

The Obama administration even claims to have the power to secretly murder Americans with no trial — and, in fact, it has done so in at least several cases that are now known publicly. A Justice Department memo leaked in 2013 outlined the outlandish legal rationale purporting to authorize Obama serving as judge, jury, and executioner. When asked by the Huffington Post whether the administration should tell the public when it secretly murders an American, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said “it depends.”

The dean of the law school, Avi Soifer, tried to downplay Scalia’s explosive remarks, telling the AP he thought the Supreme Court justice was merely suggesting that people should always be vigilant and that the law alone cannot be relied on to provide protection. “We do need a court that sometimes will say there are individual or group rights that are not being adequately protected by the democratic process,” Soifer was quoted as saying, though it was not clear what “group rights” was supposed to refer to. The dean also noted that Scalia was among those who reined in the power of “military commissions.”

However, despite efforts to downplay the clear statements made by Scalia, countless Americans believe there is good cause to be concerned — and not just because history conclusively proves that the U.S. government is capable of lawlessly interning citizens. In 2012, for example, a leaked military document dubbed “Army Field Manual 3-39.40: Internment and Resettlement Operations” provides guidance on interning Americans on U.S. soil. It even teaches how to identify “malcontents, trained agitators, and political leaders” and how “to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes.”

Of course, there have been countless reports about internment facilities all across the United States set up under the aegis of the Federal Emergency Management Agency — so-called “FEMA camps.” In 2006, a Halliburton subsidiary was even handed a $385-million contract to build a vast network of “detention centers”for the Department of Homeland Security. Officials downplayed the news, saying the camps were simply meant to prepare for a potential massive influx of immigrants.

Stories and fears about “FEMA camps” are often dismissed by the establishment and even some credible researchers who have investigated. The centers, however, along with countless videos claiming to show camps across the United States, have fueled strong suspicion all across the political spectrum. Meanwhile, even a cursory review of the so-called “executive orders” issued over the last century shows that the executive branch believes it can seize virtually total control of the nation in the event of an “emergency” declared by the president.

Even in recent years, Americans have been herded by federal officials into camps against their will. After hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, for example, authorities declared martial law, forcibly disarmed residents, and forced massive numbers of people into FEMA-run camps. During the recent swine flu hysteria, officials were also openly discussing and preparing for the forcible quarantine of Americans. More recently still, homeless people in some areas have also been coerced into camps under penalty of arrest.

Obviously it makes sense for government to prepare for contingencies. As with all official programs, however, innocent-seeming schemes can be abused, and often are. With the U.S. government becoming infamous for brazenly lying to the public — WMDs in Iraq, for example, or you can keep your health insurance — it is hardly surprising that public suspicion of Washington, D.C., and its intentions continues to grow.

More than a few recent training exercises have added fuel to the fire. Among the most alarming: Black military helicopters filled with terror warriors swarming around U.S. cities firing fake ammo, Chinese and Russiantroops training on U.S. soil with American forces in recent years, Homeland Security “relocation” drills in Colorado, FEMA signing an “exchange” deal with Vladimir Putin’s government, and more. The Obama administration’s wild stockpiling and distribution to local law enforcement of “weapons of war” for domestic use has also raised serious concerns.

Analyst Justin King, writing in the Digital Journal, said Scalia’s remarks should “terrify” Americans. “First, the longest-serving Justice on the Supreme Court has openly stated that the court does not adhere to the Constitution of the United States, but rather allows laws to wither in times of war,” he wrote. “The highest court in the land will gladly send you to a prison camp out of fear, knowing that it is wrong.” He also pointed out that with the vague “terror” war still raging, virtually anybody could be caught in a government dragnet merely by virtue of their beliefs.

In fact, the U.S. government has already made clear in numerous official documents that its terror war isincreasingly focused on its own domestic political foes. From the Department of Homeland Security and theJustice Department to the Pentagon, numerous tentacles of the lawless executive branch have openly identified everyday Americans as potential terrorists and extremists. Among others: pro-life activists, Christians, gun-rights supporters, states’ rights advocates, veterans, conservatives, libertarians, Ron Paul supporters, liberty lovers, and more.

Martial Law is Coming to America – Presidential Executive Orders….


MARTIAL LAW THROUGH ” PRESIDENTIAL EXECUTIVE ORDERS  – ARE YOU READY – THE  U.S. GOVERNMENT IS !!!!!

 

By Presidential Executive Order the Federal Emergency Management Agency (F.E.M.A.), has, for the last fifteen years, been given authority to:

 1. Confiscate our Personal Property

2. Separate families into 43 primary internment camps (which are relocation camps with a capacity of 45,000 prisoners and also authorized hundreds of secondary facilities – for future assignment to work camps).

3.        Declare “Martial Law and over-ride the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights!

By Presidential Executive Orders already in place(they are the law of the land) and using F.E.M.A. as its agent, the U.S. Government will eliminate (make null and void and suspend) The U.S. Constitution and all our rights and liberties for “any national security emergency situation that might confront the government”!

 

The following Executive Orders ( which can be found in the Federal Register in Washington DC {check it on the web}), will be immediately enforced during any “Real or Perceived” national threat, whether it be environmental, financial, natural, social, etc..

 

Presidential Executive Orders – LAWS

12148 – F.E.M.A. will be the agent to handle any national security security emergency, such as: natural disaster, social unrest, insurrection, or national financial crisis.

 

10995 – …Provides for the seizure of all communications media in the United States.

10997 – …provides for the seizure of all elecrical power, petroleum, gas, fuels and minerals, both Public and Private.

 

10998 – …Provides for the seizure of all food supplies and resources, Public and Private, and all farms, lands and equipment.

 

10999 – …Provides for the seizure of all means of transportation, including personal cars, trucks or vehicles of any kind and total control over all highways, seaports, and waterways.

 

11000 – …Provides for the seizure of all American People for work forces under Federal Supervision, including splitting up families, as needed.

 

11001 – …Provides for government seizure of all health, education and welfare functions.

 

11002 – …Designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons. (Under this order, you will report to your local post office to be seperated and assigned a new area)!!!

 

11003 – …Provides for the government to take over all airports and aircraft, commercial, public and private.

 

11004 – …Provides for the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, designate areas to be abandoned and establish new locations for populations!!!

 

11005 – …Provides for the government to take over all railroads, inland waterways, and public storage facilities!!!

110051 – …The office of Emergency Planning (has) complete authorization to put the above orders into effect in time of increased international tension or economic or financial crisis!

 

And Now the BIG ONE! – 11490

 

All of the above executive orders, except 12148, were combined by President Nixon into Executive Order Number 11490, which authorizes F.E.M.A. to implement all the other Executive Orders if a national emergency is declared by the President!

(Note) Please be advised that some of the executive orders have been superseded, changed, etc… If an executive order does not now correspond to the  ones listed above, be assured that it still exists, though it will have to be searched for in an Executive Order that supersedes it , or that incorporates it!!!

 

In addition: The Omnibus Crime Bill of 1990 mandates the confiscation of all private property as a result of money laundering, environmental violations of the Clean Water and Air Act, and for certain child abuse violations. The Omnibus Crime Bill directs F.E.M.A. and the Department of the Army, Commanding General, U.S. Forces Command, Fort McPherson, GA. As the executive and implementing agency to enforce the Omnibus Crime Bill.

Also, U.S. Army Forces Command/J-3 )previously known as the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations, Plans Division, DCSOPS), keeps on file copies of all F.E.M.A. Emergency Management Operation Plans, including those plans developed by the Army to support the F.E.M.A. plan to eliminate the U.S. Constitution upon implementation of Executive Order 11490.

According to current plans, the U.S. Constitution will be only temporarily discontinued during a real or perceived threat to National security, and then reestablished as soon as the threat has been neutralized.(Do you believe that???!!!)

You Cannot Have Guns During Troubled Times

Crime Bill-1994 Makes it illegal to possess all military-type weapons; Outlaws other military equipment, and sets the stage for confiscating all guns held by private citizens, and will make many Americans outlaws. (Note: All guns were registered and then confiscated in Germany at the time Adolph Hitler took control. After Hitler had control of his country’s citizens, he then went on to try to rule the world)!

The government agency that will conduct searches and seizures of firearms is the Department of the Army, who will use local and state police, F.E.M.A., F.B.I., B.A.T.F. and other recruited agencies, both Federal and State as needed.

Living under Martial Law – What life will be like

Total control of every facet of our lives – where we live, how and what we eat, where and when we come and go, the work we do, what we can and cannot read and watch, total control – that is what life will be like under Martial Law.

Martial Law is on the horizon, coming down the slopes, rolling into the valley, entering our towns, even as we sleep, and one day, as we awaken, we will be shocked at the consequences our inaction has produced.

One day I feel we will be judged on what we have done to prevent the downfall of a country that was set up by the Hand of God!

What has happened to The United States of America and the Constitution!

 

We, as a free people, have failed to stay true to the trust given us by the Founding Fathers. What was achieved by them through the shedding of blood, we have squandered for braed and cake and entertainment, and the evidence that will indict us is: “Do you know, do you understand, the greatest document ever penned by man, the U.S. Constitution? Have you ever written your congressman or senator when legislation was proposed that was repugnant to the Constitution? Have you taught the principles contained in the Constitution to your children? Have you helped instill in others with which you have influence on, a sense of what true patriotism should be? Have you respect for your forefathers and the freedom from tyranny that cost some of the best blood of that century? Are you willing to give up all that you have to protect and preserve the freedom provided by those that went before us? They were willing!

 

Patriotism – Not a Dirty Word!

 

We keep hearing on radio and television the words “Patriot and Patriotism” – used as something bad or contrary to what it should mean. Patriotism (my own definition) is to be true to your country and to the principles upon which it was established. To respect the flag, which is a symbol for the principles of your country. To live as a God-Fearing people that are thankful for their freedom to the point that they would give their all to preserve it for their posterity.

What do you feel about the United States of America?

A Test. Find an American Flag – then place your hand over your heart – and while looking directly at the Flag – think of all that your freedom means to you and your patriotic fellow citizens – think about all those in the intervening years since the inception of the Constitution that have sacrificed their all for this free land – and then say these words:

I pledge allegiance to the flag of The United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.

 

If these words do not stir any feelings within your breast, then you are not a Patriotic American.

 

If, however, you feel the warm tingly feeling that I feel at the truth and validity of these words and feel the sensation that you would give your all for this great country and the principles upon which it was founded – then you are a Patriotic American.

 

If you are not a Patriotic American – please read the Constitution, study about your forefathers, learn until you feel as you should towards your country and flag. If this does not work – and you still do not feel patriotic – then you are the enemy. “A Man or Woman chooses every day whether or not they are patriotic – whether or not they like it”!

 

If you are a Patriotic American, then choose you this day whom you will serve and what you will do to keep sacred and safeguard The Constitution and Bill of Rights of The United States of America.

 

The Constitution is today “Hanging by a Thread” – that is almost invisible (as our rights and freedoms are becoming)!

 

Trouble is coming, is already here and more is coming over the horizon. Prepare yourselves! Please do something about it – tell your friends about it – warn your neighbor – Be a Patriot!

 

The signs of the times – Revelations from God

 

To often we bask in our comfortable complacency and rationalize that the ravages of war, economic disaster, famine, earthquake and pestilence cannot happen here – in America! Those who believe this are either not acquainted with the revelations of the Lord, or they do not believe them.

Open Your Eyes!

Oh, that the people would open their eyes and discern the signs of the times; for if they will not take warning, they must perish! But they rush blindly on, giving no heed to the prophecies of the Holy Prophets, or to the voice of the Lord which is kindly calling after them; or to the voice of his servants, who are laboring day and night to rescue them from the coming evils!

 

Are you Blind Also

One of the marked signs of the times is the blindness of the people; we are told they would have eyes and see not, and ears but hear not, and hearts and understand not. – Open Your Eyes!

 

We have many things facing us today. Martial Law is coming to America in one form or another – unless we can prevent it. Some are killing babies – some even before they can be born – or have a chance to defend their right to life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness guaranteed in this country. We have those who would pervert the ways of the Lord by participating in abominable sexual relations, Gay and Lesbian activity. We now have same-sex marriages and children being adopted by these so-called couples and then indoctrinated to believe in the practices that those they live with teach and live every day. These things are against the commandments of God.Remember that at one point in the Bible, the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by fire for such awful wickedness. When the children in this world do not have the chance to grow up in righteousness, then beware the Judgements of God. We have the sacred covenant of marriage broken so easily and with such frequency as to make it look normal to the rising generation. We have psychologists teaching our children “Values Clarification”(That they should have a value system, and that whatever they choose as their values are OK-no matter what those values are. So if you think Homosexuality, Murder, Pedophilia, Robbery, or any other such Vile thing is OK-then it is – if it is part of your Value system). We have the breakdown of the Family in America. We have either both parents working or parents working 2 or 3 jobs in many cases just to sustain life and others that try to maintain a high standard of living at the expense of their family. We have children leaving for school and coming home without having seen their parents at all. Many of these things have come about because of such things as taking prayer out of schools, trying to take the words “Under God” out of the pledge of allegiance(the very thought – our forefathers fought the great revolutionary war to have religious freedom).

 

 

CEASE TO SLEEP!                                                       AWAKE!

PREPARE!

 

THE STORM APPROACHES!

FIND THE FEMA CAMP NEAR YOU……


The evidence that we the people, are at risk of being placed under martial law, and losing all of our rights as guaranteed by the Constitution is overwhelming.

On October 17, 2006, President Bush signed into law, the John Warner Defense Authorization Act. The law allows the President to declare a “public emergency” at his own discretion, and place federal troops anywhere throughout the United States. Under this law, the President also now has the authority to federalize National Guard troops without the consent of Governors, in order to restore “public order.” The President can now deploy federal troops to U.S. cities, at will, which eliminates the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act.

In short, President Obama can now declare Martial Law anytime he sees fit to do so.

An Excerpt from the John Warner Defense Authorization Act follows:

“Use of the Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies.” Section 333, “Major public emergencies; interference with State and Federal law” states that “the President may employ the armed forces, including the National Guard in Federal service, to restore public order and enforce the laws of the United States when, as a result of a natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition in any State or possession of the United States, the President determines that domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of (“refuse” or “fail” in) maintaining public order, “in order to suppress, in any State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy.”

On October 1, 2008 the U.S. Army´s 1st Brigade of the 3rd Infantry Division began their stateside mission under U.S. Northern Command. It was the first time that an active duty Army unit has been assigned this type of mission. They are known as the CBRNE Consequence Management Response Force. They are responsible for responding to terrorist attacks, and restoring order in case of civil unrest.

Among supposed humanitarian duties, their specific job is to provide crowd and traffic control, and to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals without killing them.

In addition to their standard weapons, the 1st Brigade has been equipped with mobile road blocks, spike strips for stopping vehicles, shields and batons, beanbag bullets, and taser guns.

In September 2008, Col. Roger Cloutier told the Army Times: “It´s a new modular package of non-lethal capabilities that they´re fielding. They´ve been using pieces of it in Iraq, but this is the first time that these modules were consolidated and this package fielded, and because of this mission we´re undertaking we were the first to get it.”

The soldiers of the Third Infantry Divison are battle-hardened combat veterans and have done three tours of duty in Iraq, they hardly seem suited to “crowd control” duties.

Ordinarily, such use of the military on U.S. soil would violate the law. However, with Bush´s order to suspend Posse Comitatus, the military is now free to patrol the streets of our cities and arrest American citizens.

Then, in the summer of 2009, a somewhat disturbing ad began appearing on internet employment sites, the ad in question was placed by the National Guard. Apparently, the Guard is now looking for people to work at internment camps.

Here is the ad as it appeared:

Correction Officer Internment / Resettlement Specialist

As an Internment/Resettlement Specialist for the Army National Guard, you will ensure the smooth running of military confinement/correctional facility or detention/internment facility, similar to those duties conducted by civilian Corrections Officers. This will require you to know proper procedures and military law; and have the ability to think quickly in high-stress situations. Specific duties may include assisting with supervision and management operations; providing facility security; providing custody, control, supervision, and escort; and counseling individual prisoners in rehabilitative programs.

So, why is the National Guard hiring “Internment / Resettlement Specialists?”

On December 31, 2011, while on vacation in Hawaii, President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law which in addition to allocating $662 billion to the Pentagon also contains a measure which allows U.S. citizens to be taken into custody and held indefinitely without ever being charged with a crime.

Not only can any citizen deemed a threat to “national security interests of the United States,” be held forever without receiving a trial, but the military will be the ones arresting those citizens.

NDAA Section 1022, subsection c allows “(1) Detention under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force.”

This law basically repeals habeas corpus, by not requiring the government to give cause or evidence as to why the person is being detained; the 6th Amendment which ensures U.S. citizens the right to counsel as well as the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 which prevents federal military forces from being deployed and used against U.S. citizens.

And what would the government do with all of those citizens?

Equipped with water tower, incinerator, a small train yard behind it and the rear of the facility is surrounded by barbed wire facing inwards.

INDIANA
Indianapolis / Marion County – Amtrak railcar repair facility (closed); controversial site of a major alleged detention / processing center. Although some sources state that this site is a “red herring”, photographic and video evidence suggests otherwise. This large facility contains large 3-4 inch gas mains to large furnaces (crematoria??), helicopter landing pads, railheads for prisoners, Red/Blue/Green zones for classifying/processing incoming personnel, one-way turnstiles, barracks, towers, high fences with razor wire, etc. Personnel with government clearance who are friendly to the patriot movement took a guided tour of the facility to confirm this site. This site is located next to a closed refrigeration plant facility. Ft.

So-called Clergy Response Teams are reportedly being trained by FEMA to convince people to follow government orders, in the event of martial law.

The evidence that we the people, are at risk of being placed under martial law, and losing all of our rights as guaranteed by the Constitution is overwhelming.

Thirty years ago, we enjoyed the benefits of a press which took their responsibility to the public very seriously. Any signs pointing to the implementation of martial law and criminal actions committed by the federal government would have drawn the attention of our journalists.

However, in the age of “imbedded reporters,” and 90-minute network infomercials complete with anchors promoting government healthcare, our press has a much-too cozy relationship with those in government. A complicit press is making it very easy for our government to erode civil liberties.

Obama States: Detention “OK” for 1st Amendment ‘activities’


Judge’s Order preventing enforcement appealed by Department of Justice.
============================================
The Obama administration is battling to restore a controversial provision of a new federal law that it admits could have been used to arrest and detain citizens indefinitely – even if their actions were protected by the First Amendment.

A federal judge this week made permanent an injunction against enforcement of Section 1021 of the most recent National Defense Authorization Act, which was declared unconstitutional.
The judge expressed dissatisfaction with what one observer described as the arrogance of the Department of Justice in the case.
The Obama administration then took only hours to file an appeal of the order from U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest, and attorneys also asked her to halt enforcement of her order.

In her order, Forrest wrote, “The government put forth the qualified position that plaintiffs’ particular activities, as described at the hearing, if described accurately, if they were independent, and without more, would not subject plaintiffs to military detention under Section 1021.”

But she continued, “The government did not – and does not – generally agree or anywhere argue that activities protected by the First Amendment could not subject an individual to indefinite military detention under Section 1021.”

The case was brought last January by a number of writers and reporters, led by New York Times reporter Christopher Hedges. The journalists contend the controversial section allows for detention of citizens and residents taken into custody in the U.S. on “suspicion of providing substantial support” to anyone engaged in hostilities against the U.S.

The lawsuit alleges the law is vague and could be read to authorize the arrest and detention of people whose speech or associations are protected by the First Amendment. They wonder whether interviewing a member of al-Qaida would be considered “substantial support.”

“Here, the stakes get no higher: indefinite military detention – potential detention during a war on terrorism that is not expected to end in the foreseeable future, if ever. The Constitution requires specificity – and that specificity is absent from Section 1021,” the judge wrote.

Dan Johnson, a spokesman with People Against the NDAA, told WND it took only hours for the government to file an appeal to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals.

“It most definitely tells us something about their intent,” he told WND.

He cited Obama’s signing statement, when the bill was made law, that he would not use the provision allowing detention of American citizens without probable cause in military facilities.

“Just because someone says something doesn’t mean they’re not lying,” he said.

Bloomberg reports the Obama administration also is asking Forrest for a stay of the ruling that found the law violates the First, Fifth and 14th Amendments.

The judge expressed dissatisfaction with what one observer described as the arrogance of the Department of Justice in the case.

Forrest asked the government to define the legal term, noting the importance of how they apply to reporting and other duties.

“The court repeatedly asked the government whether those particular past activities could subject plaintiffs to indefinite military detention; the government refused to answer,” she wrote.

“The Constitution places affirmative limits on the power of the executive to act, and these limits apply in times of peace as well as times of war,” she wrote.

She said the law “impermissibly impinges on guaranteed First Amendment rights and lacks sufficient definitional structure and protection to meet the requirements of due process.”

“This court rejects the government’s suggestion that American citizens can be placed in military detention indefinitely, for acts they could not predict might subject them to detention, and have as their sole remedy a habeas petition adjudicated by a single decision-maker (a judge versus a jury), by a ‘preponderance of the evidence’ standard,” she wrote.

“That scenario dispenses with a number of guaranteed rights,” she said.

The Obama administration already has described those who hold a pro-life position or support third-party presidential candidates or the Second Amendment fit the profile of a domestic terrorist.

Obama stated when he put his signature to the legislative plan that his administration “will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens.”

Virginia already has passed a law that states it would not cooperate with such detentions, and several local jurisdictions have done the same. Arizona, Rhode Island, Maryland, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Washington also have considered similar legislation.

The case was brought on behalf of Christopher Hedges, Daniel Ellsberg, Jennifer Bolen, Noam Chomsky, Alex O’Brien, Kai Warg All, Brigitta Jonsottir and the group U.S. Day of Rage. Many of the plaintiffs are authors or reporters who stated that the threat of indefinite detention by the U.S. military already had altered their activities.

Constitutional expert Herb Titus filed a friend-of-the-court brief on behalf of the sponsor of the Virginia law, Delegate Bob Marshall and others.

Titus, an attorney with William J. Olson, P.C., told WND the judge’s first decision to grant a preliminary injunction halting enforcement of paragraph 1021 “affirms the constitutional position taken by Delegate Marshall is correct.”

The impact is that “the statute does not have sufficient constitutional guidelines to govern the discretion of the president in making a decision whether to hold someone in indefinite military detention,” Titus said.

The judge had noted that the law doesn’t have a requirement that there be any knowledge that an act is prohibited before a detention. The judge also said the law is vague, and she appeared to be disturbed that the administration lawyers refused to answer her questions.

Titus said the judge’s conclusions underscore “the arrogance of the current regime, in that they will not answer questions that they ought to answer to a judge because they don’t think they have to.”

The brief was filed on behalf of Marshall and other individuals and organizations, including the United States Justice Foundation, Downsize DC Foundation, Institute on the Constitution, Gun Owners of America, Western Center for Journalism, the Tenth Amendment Center and Pastor Chuck Baldwin.

Marshall’s HB1160 passed the Virginia House of Delegates by a vote of 87-7 and the Virginia Senate 36-1. Since the vote was on changes recommended by Gov. Bob McDonnell, it was scheduled to take effect without further vote.

Marshall then wrote leaders in state legislatures around the country suggesting similar votes in their states.

Marshall’s letter noted Virginia was the first state in the nation to refuse cooperation “with federal authorities who, acting under the authority of section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), could arrest and detain American citizens suspected of aiding terrorists without probable cause, without the right to know the charges against them, and without the procedural rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.”

He told lawmakers, “While we would hope that the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives would be vigilant to protect the constitutional rights of American citizens, even when addressing the problem of international terrorism, those efforts in Congress failed at the end of last year, and President Obama signed NDAA into law on December 31, 2011.”

Endorsing Marshall’s plan was the Japanese American Citizens League, which cited the detention of tens of thousands of Japanese Americans during World War II on no authorization other than the president’s signature.

The Obama administration continues to argue the law allows for detention without legal due process only those who “substantially supported” terror groups such as al-Qaida or “associated forces.” But the plaintiffs note that the law does not define those terms.

Instead, they point to the law’s provision that such individuals may be detained “without trial until the end of the hostilities.”

Obama attorneys said the new law simply affirms what already was precedent under the Authorization for Use of Military Force, which was adopted in the dust of the 9/11 terror attacks.

But plaintiffs wrote, “Nowhere does the AUMF convey to the executive the power to detain any person – citizen or otherwise – who ‘substantially supported’ al-Qaida or the Taliban or their associate forces, as section 1021 of the NDAA now provides.”

“No case has ever recognized the government’s contention that the AUMF authorized the detention of noncombatants. … Neither case law nor the actual text of the AUMF supports the government’s contention that such detention power already existed.”
