Once again we have been abandoned by congress, president and the supreme court, this time with SCOTUS refusing to take up the matter of the loss of our Constitutional rights to due process found in Posse Comitatus and Habeas Corpus as guaranteed by the 4th, 5th, 10th and 14th amendments. The matters came before the court as Writ of Certiorari with the ability of the president and U.S. military to arrest and indefinitely detain individuals.
This matter was buried deep within the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2012 that allows the military to be used for law enforcement purposes and the detention without right to counsel, or presentment to a court for criminal charges. They can simply throw you into a cell and leave you to rot. This is in effect the abrogation of our right to face our accusers and have our day in court by nine justices in black robes, who have now amended the Constitution without the States authority under Article V, and have done away with an impartial jury’s verdict before depriving us of our liberty.
What are we to think? Not one justice dissented and all agreed to decline taking this matter up, this is suspension of the rule of law from the highest court in the land. We are now serfs and chattels to be hauled away by the whim of a president or designee that can arbitrarily decide that you are a threat and be sent to who knows where.
Possibly never to be seen again.
Our courts are supposed to stand as impartial guardians between our executive branch that would prosecute citizens and the jury that render judgment. That quaint notion is now gone. Obama has proven himself a tyrant that is willing to use and abuse the power of government against the people to the point of persecuting those who do not share his political goals and aspirations. With this decision, we have been delivered to our fate, disagree or dissent and you may be on your way to indefinite detention, without any recourse whatsoever.
When this matter was first heard at trial U.S. District Judge Katherine B. Forrest issued an Opinion and Order that struck the provision as unconstitutional. Obama appealed to the 2nd Circuit of Appeals and won, SCOTUS refused to take up the matter so here we are, the action stands.
Obama has stated that this provision does not apply to citizens, though has refused to specifically state this in any pleading, to any court. We can presume that this newly found and approved power will be abused. With the targeting of conservatives by the IRS and the surveillance of citizens by the NSA and the abuse of law by DOJ, we are no longer a free and able people. We should follow the advice of Justice Scalia maybe we should revolt.
By amending the Constitution by a Convention of the States and place this government back into a constitutionally restrained Republic. It is now imperative that this be done with all possible haste, as we are now in the situation that our founders feared an unrestrained federal government abusing us at every turn. From WND.
