Rand Paul’s Fillibuster

Wow, I can’t believe some of the things coming out of Rand Paul’s mouth there live on CSPAN.  Just kidding, yes I can.  You don’t grow up with Ron Paul as a father and not come away with deeply rooted ideas against tyranny.

I love that he is standing up for the constitution.  I love the anti-war statements he’s made.  He is covering a lot of ground.  Could you imagine having all that information at your fingertips to cover more than 12 hours of time?  I am impressed with the other senators who have come forward to help Rand.  Under no circumstances should the government be able to use drones against American’s overseas or on our soil without due process.
Rand Paul will make his own path in politics and this filibuster is the beginning of that. I am thankful he grew up in a home where patriotism and the Constitution  is at the utmost importance.  I feel like the questions that Senator Rand Paul brought up are legitimate and must be answered!
I have been against the drones since I learned of their existence.  I do not like the idea of killing people at cafes, weddings, or barbeques.  That’s cowardice and cruel.  We should never have “collateral damage” and to all you American’s who still think it’s a good idea to have this drone program here at home– well I just don’t know what to make of you or your kind.
I was very unhappy with Rand and his support for Mitt Romney during the election but I felt like he made up for that a little bit today.  He still has a long way to go but he’s done more to protect our constitution than any other senator on that floor!

All Aboard!

Ex-Cop goes Rouge to Expose Corruption Within Police Department

Christopher Jordan Dorner a former Police Officer for the LAPD wrote a  manifesto. before he went on his rampage in Southern California.  We all know how it is don’t we?  Corruption runs deep in every city, town, and state in America.  No one is lucky enough to live in a corrupt free society.  The problem with our corrupt society is that it has destroyed our  sentiment and moral nature as a whole.
Do you think this manifesto should prompt an investigation on the allegations made?  Should the LAPD be investigated?  Should the LAPD admit to Dorner’s claims and end the rampage?
Things we never imagined could happen have happened.  It started way before Columbine, Waco, and Oklahoma City.  We watched the World Trade Centers disintegrate live on television and every one of us knew something wasn’t right.  The attack on the Pentagon still isn’t clear and none of the facts add up with the missing plane over Pennsylvania.  Building #7 falling along with the twin towers without ever being hit by any airplane prompted ‘conspiracy theorists’ around the world who believe it was a planned demolition.
I don’t know what to think of the former officers actions but I can say I don’t agree with his methodology.  He sounded like a smart guy and it’s too bad he didn’t find another outlet.  He could have written a book.  We won’t know though unless he is brought in alive and from reading the manifesto the only way that would happen is if his name was cleared.  I think that we can learn more from him alive than we can dead. I would think there may be some  validity to Dorner’s claims in his manifesto after two women were shot by the LAPD.

“I know I will be vilified by the LAPD and the media”

“The department has not changed since the Rampart and Rodney King days. It has gotten worse. The consent decree should never have been lifted. The only thing that has evolved from the consent decree is those officers involved in the Rampart scandal and Rodney King incidents have since promoted to supervisor, commanders, and command staff, and executive positions.”

“A name is more than just a noun, verb, or adjective. It’s your life, your legacy, your journey, sacrifices, and everything you’ve worked hard for every day of your life as and adolescent, young adult and adult.
Don’t let anybody tarnish it when you know you’ve live up to your own set of ethics and personal ethos.”

“I’m not an aspiring rapper, I’m not a gang member, I’m not a dope dealer, I don’t have multiple babies momma’s. I am an American by choice, I am a son, I am a brother, I am a military service member, I am a man who has lost complete faith in the system, when the system betrayed, slandered, and libeled me. I lived a good life and though not a religious man I always stuck to my own personal code of ethics, ethos and always stuck to my shoreline and true North. I didn’t need the US Navy to instill Honor, Courage, and Commitment in me but I thank them for re-enforcing it. It’s in my DNA.”

Luckily I don’t have to live everyday like most of you. Concerned if the misconduct you were apart of is going to be discovered. Looking over your shoulder, scurrying at every phone call from internal affairs or from the Captains office wondering if that is the day PSB comes after you for the suspects you struck when they were cuffed months/years ago or that $500 you pocketed from the narcotics dealer, or when the other guys on your watch beat a transient nearly to death and you never reported the UOF to the supervisor. No, I don’t have that concern, I stood up for what was right but unfortunately have dealt with the reprocussions of doing the right thing and now losing my name and everything I ever stood for. You fuckers knew Evans was guilty of kicking (excessive force) Gettler and you did nothing but get rid of what you saw as the problem, the whistleblower. Gettler himself stated on video tape ( provided for the BOR and in transcripts) he was kicked and even his father stated that his son said he was kicked by Evans when he was released from custody. The video was played for the entire BOR to hear. Tingirides, Eisenberg, and Martella all heard it. You’re going to see what a whistleblower can do when you take everything from him especially his NAME!!!”
“Chief Beck, this is when you need to have that come to Jesus talk with Sgt. Teresa Evans and everyone else who was involved in the conspiracy to have me terminated for doing the right thing. you also need to speak with her attorney, Rico, and his conversation with the BOR members and her confession of guilt in kicking Mr. Gettler. I’ll be waiting for a PUBLIC response at a press conference. When the truth comes out, the killing stops.”
The attacks will stop when the department states the truth about my innocence, PUBLICLY!!! I will not accept any type of currency/goods in exchange for the attacks to stop, nor do i want it. I want my name back, period. There is no negotiation. I am not the state department who states they
English: LAPD officers at crime scene

English: LAPD officers at crime scene (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

do not negotiate with terrorist, because anybody with a Secret or TS/SCI has seen IIR’s on SIPR and knows that the US state department always negotiates by using CF countries or independent sovereign/neutral country to mediate and compromising.”
“This department has not changed from the Daryl Gates and Mark Fuhrman days. Those officers are still employed and have all promoted to Command staff and supervisory positions. I will correct this error. Are you aware that an officer (a rookie/probationer at the time) seen on the Rodney King videotape striking Mr. King multiple times with a baton on 3/3/91 is still employed by the LAPD and is now a Captain on the police department? Captain Rolando Solano is now the commanding officer of a LAPD police station (West LA division). As a commanding officer, he is now responsible for over 200 officers. Do you trust him to enforce department policy and investigate use of force investigations on arrestees by his officers? Are you aware Evans has since promoted to Sergeant after kicking Mr. Gettler in the face. Oh, you Violated a citizens civil rights? We will promote you. Same as LAPD did with the the officers from Metro involved in the May Day melee at MacArthur Park. They promoted them to Sergeant (a supervisor role).”
“Terminating officers because they expose a culture of lying, racism (from the academy), and excessive use of force will immediately change. PSB can not police their own and that has been proven. The blue line will forever be severed and a cultural change will be implanted. You have awoken a sleeping giant.”
“Citizens/non-combatants, do not render medical aid to downed officers/enemy combatants. They would not do the same for you. They will let you bleed out just so they can brag to other officers that they had a 187 caper the other day and can’t wait to accrue the overtime in future court subpoenas. As they always say, “that’s the paramedics job…not mine”. Let the balance of loss of life take place. Sometimes a reset needs to occur.”

“Don’t honor these fallen officers/dirtbags. When your family members die, they just see you as extra overtime at a crime scene and at a perimeter. Why would you value their lives when they clearly don’t value yours or your family members lives? I’ve heard many officers who state they see dead victims as ATV’s, Waverunners, RV’s and new clothes for their kids. Why would you shed a tear for them when they in return crack a smile for your loss because of the impending extra money they will receive in their next paycheck for sitting at your loved ones crime scene of 6 hours because of the overtime they will accrue. They take photos of your loved ones recently deceased bodies with their cellphones and play a game of who has the most graphic dead body of the night with officers from other divisions. This isn’t just the 20 something year old officers, this is the 50 year old officers with significant time on the job as well who participate.”
How do you know when a police officer is lying??? When he begins his sentence with, “based on my experience and training”.
“If possible, I want my brain preserved for science/research to study the effects of severe depression on an individual’s brain. Since 6/26/08 when I was relieved of duty and 1/2/09 when I was terminated I have been afflicted with severe depression. I’ve had two CT scans during my lifetime that are in my medical record at Kaiser Permanente. Both are from concussions resulting from playing football. The first one was in high school, 10/96. The second was in college and occurred in 10/99. Both were conducted at Kaiser Permanente hospitals in LA/Orange county. These two CT scans should give a good baseline for my brain activity before severe depression began in late 2008.”

Agenda 21 Is Being Rammed Down The Throats Of Local Communities All Over America! What will you do about it? Did you even know about it?  Agenda 21 is not something a lot of people talk about or even believe is happening in America.  But it is happening in America and it’s happening right here in our own city! Don’t believe me!  Please do your own research! You can see my sources by clicking on the links (by clicking on the words themselves) that I’ve hooked to each of these chapters listed above.
So how is this being done? Well, after Agenda 21 was adopted, an international organization known as the “International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives” (ICLEI) was established to help implement the goals of Agenda 21.

<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/zqkURXGcylI&#8221; frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen>

At 1:11 Governor Branstad acknowledges Agenda 21.  Even though he says he doesn’t support it and claims that he has tried to stop it at the state level he hasn’t and likely won’t!  If he was truly trying to stop this from happening he would be more aggressive about it! If he was truly trying to stop Agenda 21 at the state level he could easily do it simply by talking about it– in more than one video!

So, when you hear the word “sustainable” don’t be fooled it doesn’t mean sustainability for America it literally means sustainability for the United Nations and the “One World Government”.

DCI Completes Investigation into Fatal Officer-Involved Shooting in Cedar Rapids

“Desirae A. Daniel, 27, was shot by police on the morning of Dec. 4 following a police chase and died at a hospital a short time later. According to police, Daniel was sitting in the driver’s seat of a car in the 200 block of 27th Street NW after the chase when she pulled a gun as officers were approaching the car. Police said a handgun was later recovered from the car.”

The State Police have finished their investigation but they aren’t going to share any details. County Attorney Jerry Vandersanden is reviewing the case but doesn’t want to rush it. “Something like this, you don’t want to rush,” Vander Sanden said. For those of us who know how things work in Cedar Rapids this is a open and shut case that will find these police officers heroes in the end.

Attempted Abduction of Teenage Girl Reported in Cedar Rapids

According to police, a 17-year-old girl was walking in the 500 block of 12th Avenue SE around 11:20 a.m. Wednesday when she noticed a man in a gray car looking at her. The man had his window rolled down and was yelling at her to come over to talk to him, but she ignored him.

The girl told police the man got out of the car and chased her for a short distance, before he gave up and returned to his car. The girl, who was not hurt, had never seen the man before, police said.

Police said the girl and her mother went back to Metro High School, where she is a student, to report the incident before calling the police later in the afternoon.

The suspect was described as a black man in his 30s wearing blue jeans and a coat. No arrests had been made by Thursday morning.

Kudos to the teenager who ran from this stranger! We’ve had enough heartache this year! I hope the police find this person!

Linn County’s “15-In-5” Progress Slowed By Flood, Recession

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Think back seven years.

The 2005 “15 in 5” Project:

1. Jobs Goal – We should establish a goal to retain, expand, and attract jobs that pay living wages and health benefits, such as a net addition of 1,000 manufacturing and food processing jobs over five years.

2. Entrepreneurial Development Fund – We should establish a local $1 million-plus Entrepreneurial Development Fund to help promising new businesses that have a quality business plan with small grants of up to $20,000.

3. Business Incubator – In partnership with the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and Kirkwood Community College, we should create a business incubator to provide a physical space for new businesses and non-profits using university research and technology or other public business assistance.

4. Early Childhood Education – We should support the Birth to Five Initiative led by Linn County Community Empowerment to end the current waiting lists and to make low-cost, quality child care and preschool available to all families, especially those families with incomes less than 200% of the federal poverty guidelines.

5. After-School Programs – To improve community safety and education, we should provide after-school programs – such as the “After School Academic Challenge and Enrichment Program” at Polk Elementary School – for every student who needs them, especially in our five core neighborhoods (Mound View, Wellington Heights, Oakhill Jackson, Taylor Area, and Northwest Area).

6. Summer-School Opportunities – In partnership with area businesses, retirees, and colleges (e.g., Kirkwood, Mt. Mercy, and Coe), we should make summer-school remedial and enrichment programs available in reading, math, science, computers, foreign language, business, and vocational education.

7. Student Community Service Goal – In partnership with area nonprofits and the Workplace Learning Connection, we should establish a goal that 50% or more of our high school students will participate in regular community service.

8. 211 First Call For Help – We should maintain and improve the 211 First Call For Help program, and the agencies that provide assistance through that program, to meet the basic needs of children, seniors, and others in need.

9. Housing Improvements – We should identify and reduce by 50% or more the number of vacant and dilapidated houses in the five core neighborhoods (Mound View, Wellington Heights, Oakhill Jackson, Taylor Area, and Northwest Area).

10. Energy Conservation And Efficiency – We should establish a goal of reducing energy use per capita by 10% over 5 years, develop measures to monitor progress toward this goal, and encourage conservation and efficiency to achieve the goal.

11. Highway 30 To Clinton And Ames – We should advocate a plan to expand Highway 30 to four lanes from Clinton to Ames for completion by 2015.

12. Light Rail Transit To Iowa City – Given the potential for congestion on Interstate-380 and rising gasoline prices, we should develop and begin implementing a plan to establish a light rail line from Cedar Rapids to Iowa City by 2015.

13. Joint Land Use Plan And Trust Fund For The Technology Corridor – We should develop a joint land use plan and environmental and recreation trust fund for Linn and Johnson Counties to identify, protect, and improve existing and future park land, recreational facilities, natural areas, agricultural land, and open space.

14. Recreational Trail For Cedar Rapids, Iowa City & Amana – We should complete a recreational bicycle trail to connect Cedar Rapids, Iowa City and Amana.

15. Cedar Bend Project – We should complete the Cedar Bend project, including recreational use of the Cedar Bend Lake, extension of the Sac and Fox Trail to the Cedar River Trail, construction of a new Witwer Senior Center to house senior organizations and activities, construction of a new market space, and conversion of the existing landfill to public open space.

What do you think of the goals?

Journalist Adam Mueller aka Ademo Freeman faces 21 years in Prison in New Hampshire, the “Live Free or Die” state for Bogus Wiretapping Charge

There is a Cedar Rapids connection to the cop watching journalist, Adam Mueller, who will face a jury in a trial next week on a New Hampshire wiretapping case. If convicted, Adam faces up to twenty-one years in prison.

I came into contact with Copblock.org a little more than a year ago when I wasn’t getting results from my local police department. I submitted a speech to Copblock.org that I had already delivered in front of my city council on June 14, 2010. My hope was that the national exposure would create positive change in our community and in my opinion it has. http://www.copblock.org/tag/ajai-dittmar/

Adam Mueller aka Ademo Freeman, was the person in which I had exchanged a few emails with before the speech was published on Copblock.org. Adam or Ademo of Copblock.org is dedicated to voluntarism and police accountability.

Adam’s charges stem from an incident he reported on that took place in a New Hampshire High School where a sibling spat turned bad when a Police Liaison slung the teen around and then slammed his head into a table at the schools cafeteria.

I don’t know whether officials are charging Adam with wiretapping to teach him and people like him a lesson or if they are trying to cover up something bigger at the high school. In my opinion, the school should be looked into along with the police liaison over the school. As a mother I would be appalled if either one of my son’s were slammed to the table at lunch over teasing their sister with her handbag. I could see my kids doing exactly what these kids did which in my opinion is perfectly normal.

Of fifty states, twelve of them make publicizing taped interviews a crime punishable by prison New Hampshire, the Live Free or Die state is on that list. One would think that in this day and age with all the technological advances we’ve made that these types of draconian laws would be thrown out.

Adam’s supporters were there in the courtroom with him after standing outside the courthouse in protest. Adam is representing himself pro se (defending himself without an attorney) and his jury was chosen on Monday, August 6, 2012. A camera was allowed into the courtroom.

Stop the State of New Hampshire from convicting Adam, write his lawmakers, make videos asking for his freedom, and spread the word about this case! http://electedlist.com/New_Hampshire.html

I wrote Adam a letter and thanked him for all he has done. The world is not a safer place with Adam behind bars. The trial begins on August 13, 2012. I will keep everyone who’s interested posted. http://www.scribd.com/collections/3735171/The-State-of-NH-vs-Adam-Mueller-aka-Ademo-Freeman here is Adam’s paperwork from the courts. If you have any ideas that could help Adam please don’t hesitate to contact Copblock.org

Meantime use the hashtag #FreeAdemo and help remind people these draconian laws still exist! http://www.copblock.org/18955/ademos-jury-selection-done-trial-in-one-week/

By the way, for my local news agencies, CNN has reported the story and it would be nice if you mentioned it too. http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-824678


If Ron Paul doesn’t get the nomination ~ Plan B ~ Gary Johnson For the Cause of Liberty

Finally some answers and a voice of reason! I think that Ron Paul took these questions with ease and that there is no other candidate who gets grilled like the doctor. I love how he tiptoes all over the presidential nomination. Don’t want to jinx it you know! Just if we are betrayed by Ron Paul and he endorses Mitt Romney I want to make certain I have studied all the candidates before I vote.

If Ron Paul does get the nomination will Gary Johnson drop his bid for president? Wouldn’t that greatly improve the republican’s chances to beat Obama in November? I think it would. At this point there is a fine line between being republican and libertarian. I’ve seen these parties work in harmony with each other and good things can come from it but I just don’t see Romney beating Obama without them.

We already know that neither Mitt or Obama are interested in the cause of liberty and that they were both bought and paid for by special interests who don’t have our best interests at heart.

Time for a crash course on Gary Johnson. It’s never good to put all your eggs into one basket anyway.
I read this article and did a quiz from the article and found that I agree with Gary Johnson on 95% of the issues that are important to me.

I am an avid Ron Paul supporter and found that I agree with him on 89% of the issues important to me.

The way I see it is Gary Johnson is more likely to change the cabinet than Romney. I could see Gary giving Ron Paul a cabinet position of his choice. I would rather vote for anyone other than the lesser of the two evils! Gary Johnson being blacked out by the media and tirelessly doing Youtube interviews with hundreds of people across the country is impressive to me. He isn’t waging $10,000 bets on national television and he is engaged to be married so he doesn’t have a wife driving a Cadillac who’s never worked a day in her life.

As an average American who does use the internet and social media as a tool to gather my information I feel that in order to move towards the cause of liberty that we must be willing to work with others to ensure the strongest possibility of getting this done before another hundred years goes by. Independent voters must unite and decide- do we want another four years of bickering party politics or do we want a radical change?

What’s going on in the United States?

We have known for a long time that we don’t run Washington DC -that they run us. While the powers that be wage their war on on the world there’s a different kind of war going on here at home. We are undergoing a Constitution crisis and if we don’t see our way out of this mess we could be heading down a path of unrest. Lawmakers claim that the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) isn’t meant to be used against American born citizens in the United States yet the United States Government has already used this act to gun down two American citizens in Yemen. While in the heat of the moment you might be relieved but when you think about it you should be frightened! Our government killed two American citizens without due process. We have become a lawless nation!

When will we become the targets?

What about “collateral damage” in the states? It’s a slippery slope people!

Are we going to just let lawmakers take our liberties?
We have to stick together or we’ll fall apart.

In doing so you have voted against me, my family, my friends, and the rest of the American population. I will never support someone who doesn’t support my rights. You have got to go Jeff Miller.

You have to understand New-speak to communicate with Mr. Miller. Jeff prefers we have a Police State without those annoying constraints of the Constitution. All you have to look at is what is happening right now IN CHICAGO, ILLIONOIS. This is what their ultimate goal is, not just localized Martial Law, but a complete Police State Lockdown of all of America. All the draconian laws and Executive Orders that have been passed since 9/11, fit together quite nicely for what is now a Totalitarian Police State.

There is still hope in State Nullification and the Courts. As you mentioned, a NY Fed. Judge has set these bozo’s straight, a short lesson on Constitutionality, a subject our Civil Servants hate to hear.—–:

US district judge Katherine Forrest, in New York City’s eastern district, found that section 1021 of the NDAA– the key section of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) – which had been rushed into law amid secrecy and in haste on New Year’s Eve 2011, bestowing on any president the power to detain US citizens indefinitely, without charge or trial, “facially unconstitutional”.

Ooooh! Poor little Tyrants all upset by the Constitution??? It’s only a temporary setback, historically, Tyrants defy the laws of nature and of man till they ultimately destroy themselves.

I think the WSJ sums up the problems with the Amash amendment quite well. “What {the Amash Amendment} means in practice is that if al Qaeda big Ayman al-Zawahiri and his soldiers are captured overseas (say, in Pakistan), they can be detained by the military, interrogated, and dispatched to wherever the Commander in Chief decides. But if they happen to make it to the U.S., they will have to be handled like your neighborhood burglar. That means being read their Miranda rights, handed over to the local police and put before a civilian judge. The military or CIA couldn’t question them to learn about future plots.
This is a bizarre distinction, as if America is not somehow part of the global terror battlefield. Try to explain that to the al Qaeda bombmakers in Yemen, or the residents of downtown Manhattan. The amendment would essentially reward al Qaeda operatives with better treatment for having the wit to get out of their caves and sneak into America to blow up civilians in shopping malls.” — WSJ May 16, 2012

Jeff Miller My opinion on the Amash amendment is recorded long before this article came out. I happen to agree with the logic that you don’t treat foreign terrorists on US soil like petty thieves. I also believe students have the right to say “One Nation Under God” in teacher-led recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools, despite what a single federal judge in California said in his ruling.

Nicole Rogers And I find your logic flawed based on the generality of the language within the bill. The language which would allow an American citizen to be called a terrorist with no proof to substantiate such a claim and indefinitely detained.

Jeff Miller That’s not what the judge said in his ruiling he said that teacher-led recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools violates the Constitution’s protection of religious freedom because the pledge refers to “one Nation under God.”

And he would be technically correct under the Constitution would he not? “One nation under God” wasn’t even in the original wording, it wasn’t added until 1954. And seeing how we live in such a diverse nation where religion is separate from government; to force someone to say these words would thus be unConstitutional. Take a child raised in a home where the main religion is Buddhism. Is it fair to force this child to comply with the rules of Christianity in a government setting? I personally choose to say “One nation under God” because I choose to live in a life where God is who I answer to. I also see that the Supreme Court and the United States Court of Appeals upheld that it should stay so the federal judges’ ruling was overturned.

NDAA for Fiscal Year 2013 Section 1033 page 359 lines 9-16. I’m not sure how much more specific it can get

9 Nothing in Public Law 107–40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note or the National
10 Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public
11 Law 112–81) shall be construed to deny the availability of
12 the writ of habeas corpus in a court ordained or established
13 by or under Article III of the Constitution for any person
14 who is detained in the United States pursuant to the Au
15 thorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107–40;

Ajai Dittmar BOOOOOO isn’t this treasonous against the American people? All these lawmakers who swore to uphold the Constitution yet VOTED TO DETAIN AMERICANS without due process should be arrested for voting for it! Don’t worry though, unlike the lawmakers, we the people would WANT YOU to have DUE PROCESS.

What part of PROTECT & UPHOLD the CONSTITUTION do you not understand Representative? By approving a law that restricts and denies Constitutional Rights to US Citizens…and then voting against the Amendment to correct that violation. TREASON against the PEOPLE.

“The NDAA subjects these individuals to arbitrary detention without trial, denying the Fifth Amendment’s guarantee of due process and Sixth Amendment rights to challenge evidence and confront one’s accusers. The NDAA also endangers First and Fourth Amendment rights, because the PATRIOT Act expanded the definition of “material support for terrorism” to include crimes of speech and association even by defendants who neither committed nor ever intended to support violence.”

‎”The NDAA is a blatant violation of the Fifth Amendment, which states that “(n)o person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury … nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.” An essential element of due process in American legal history and common law has been always been the right to trial by jury. Even the recent U.S. Supreme Court case Hamdi v. Rumsfeld in 2004 ruled that, “Fifth Amendment due process guarantees give a citizen held in the United States as an enemy combatant the right to contest that detention before a neutral decisionmaker.” Yet the federal government now claims the authority to send even U.S. citizens to a military prison for an indefinite period of time with neither trial nor charges.

Theoretically, the U.S. Supreme Court will never overturn this law, even though it is blatantly unconstitutional, because a person detained with the provisions in the NDAA might never get a day in court. Thus, the only remaining solution to this grossly un-American legislation is its swift repeal.”

Nicole Rogers Ding ding ding! You are correct Scott 🙂 There is no clarity and the bill is loosely worded on all accounts. The passing of this section of the NDAA was an act of treason against the people. Forefathers are rolling in their graves right now….

Again, there is nothing “loosely worded” about “Nothing shall be construed to deny the availability of the writ of habeas corpus in a court ordained or established by or under Article III of the Constitution for any person who is detained in the United States.” The Amash amendment did not protect the rights of American Citizens,those are guaranteed by the Constitution, it would have granted constitutional rights to foreign terrorist who are captured on US soil.
