Guest Post: Is The NDAA Lawsuit Headed To The Supreme Court?

Tyler Durden's picture

Via Michael Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

The NDAA lawsuit is one of the key topics we have written about over the past year or so.  For those of you that aren’t up to speed, one of the most popular posts we ever wrote was NDAA: The Most Important Lawsuit in American History that No One is Talking About.  Basically, Section 1021 of the NDAA allows for the indefinite detention of American citizens without charges or a trial.  Journalist Chris Hedges and several others sued Obama on the grounds of it being unconstitutional.  Judge Katherine Forrest agreed and issued an injunction on it.  This was immediately appealed by the Obama Administration to a higher court, which promptly issued a temporary stay on the injunction.

Yesterday, oral arguments began in front of this aforementioned higher court; the 2nd Circuit.  As Chris Hedges states in the interview below, if they win the case then it will likely be brought in front of the Supreme Court within weeks.  On the other hand, if the Obama Administration wins and the Supreme Court refuses to hear the appeal, Hedges states: “at that point we’ve just become a military dictatorship.”

To get a full update on the progress of the NDAA lawsuit make sure to watch this video.

“at that point we’ve just become a military dictatorship.”

And just when being a fascist corporatocracy has gotten us so far.  What must happen for us to be a Constitutional Republic again?

The answer to your question is:

Gallows, many, many gallows. And a bunch of shooting too.

If anyone enters your home illegally, you have the right (and the duty) to empty your magazine, reload, rinse and repeat.  They will get the point eventually when they run out of people who decide to "do what they are told".

The NDAA is so grotesquely unconstitutional that ANY court should vote it down. If the Supremes get to it, the vote should be 9-0 against it. But that won't happen, and the sheeple will continue to graze.  It's sad. Very sad.

Funny, just yesterday someone on here was making the statement "where have all the Liberals who protested Bush disappeared to?" and I pointed out how theyre now protesting Obama - case in point, go Hedges!

We've met the enemy......and they are us.


When unlimited power has the ability to direct a force that couldn't get a job under normal circumstances.....really bad things start to happen.

Yep. Comments are running wild on CNN though. Over 15,000 on today's Dorner story. It doen't look like many are very supportive of the LAPD.

Can't they just write one up on the fly like everyone else?

Nice to see people daring to express their true feelings!  Sheeple know more than they let on as they go about life keeping their heads down. 

I would guess LAPD Hunting Season t-shirts are selling somewhere. 

Now would be a good time for folks to start extending an appropriate greeting to these sick bastards:

From the CNN story: "Guns found in the truck were also burned, but authorities believe Dorner may have as many as 30 guns with him, the source said."

30 guns?!??! Are you fucking kidding me? How stupid are these fucking morons at CNN? Why the fuck would anyone on the run be dragging 30 guns around?

They are very tiny, tiny guns.

hey !    Please do not insult diaperless, shit-smeared imbeciles like that !    <sarc>

sun tzu's picture

Same thoughts here. It might be smarter to carry one handgun and one rifle with lots of ammo instead of 30 guns. He only has two hands.

OK why in 20,21,23,24 are they carrying mini14's? and dressed like Curt Cobain? standard issue? never heard of that gun used by LEO

Why do they have to mock Curt by dressing like him?

What are the LEO's going to do when they pass an "ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN"? That's all that you see them carrying. Oh wait, thats right, not their "ASSAULT WEAPONS", just "OURS", forgot about the memo.

 Bonzai 7 go to work with scissors in their hands!

Can't find a long rifle ANYWHERE.

Ruger mini-14, AR-15, AK-47 - nothin'!

All sold out!  Retail stores, online, everywhere.

The dumbshits in the MSM say it's because people are buying them "in fear of an assault weapon ban".  No you dumbfucks, it's called "in fear of our own government!".

And, that is what a semi-automatic handgun and rifle are for, putting down tyrannical governments!  That is what the Second Amendment is all about!  You know, it comes right after the First Amendment!  Not a coincidence!

It's not about hunting animals, it's about hunting crooked, corrupt, treasonous, Constitution burning tyrants!

Get it!?!?!?

It is all for consumption.

'Americans' usually select solutions that bring more consumption.

It's Black Friday everyday in the sporting arms industry now.

I'm sorry, we can't understand you with that mask on to protect you from the orange haze of non-consumption.

I couldn't read your comment. Too much smog rolling in from the mainland.

By golly, Al-Anon gets funnier by the day. He's pretending that a country that lives by "It is glorious to get rich by polluting every square centimeter of air, land and water you can find" is not all about consumption.

Yo, Al-Anon; I counsel you to remember Liu Shaoqi, whose Little Yellow Book I read in high school. It didn't end well for him either. I suspect the long, long arm of Beijing is reaching out right now to pinch your little testicles off.

There are other means.

Chemistry is simple.Everything is available, and Nobel's recipes are easy to duplicate.

Amazing what you can do with just nitic and sulphuric acid,glycerin,cotton wool, and gellatin.

40 awg wire , and shotgun primer complete the dish,with a side salad of shrapnel.

Bon apetite.

Nobel's formula was very stable...

Hopefully, 'americans' will fight that battle with their courage alone. As usual.

Hard to tell if that was sarc.

After the intial cooling problems in production,the formulas are very stable.

even the base nitro is is ok if handled correctly,once diluted within your into Jellonite,its

just another plastique,and is very stable.

My tastes wander to the more subtle... gas & styrofoam. My ears hurt when stuff goes BANG.

Colt LE 223 Carbine Quad Rail Black Matte16BBL 20+1



Yesterday they had a few more models. All gone as far as I can tell, except this model.

Of course, if I was buying I would buy this KRISS Vector CRB 45 ACP 16" BBL Rifle

Price : 2,299.99...........molly geez!


Then tonight that will probably seem cheap.

xtop23's picture

No thanks. Buy 308.... its whats for dinner

chubbar's picture

Plenty of long guns, ar-15's, etc on

ATM's picture

buy from a private seller. You'll find something but nothing is cheap.


Imminent Crucible's picture

I think you're right, ATM. We may be seeing the last chance to arm yourself over the coming weeks. People who waited until the Last Possible Moment can't be choosers. Get what you can get while you can get it, and don't niggle about price. If Obama wins this one, whatever price they're asking will seem like a screaming bargain a year from now. Or sooner.
