Americans can be indefinitely detained - NDAA supported by court





Published on Oct 3, 2012 by RTAmerica

On Tuesday, a federal appeals court ruled that the US government can indefinitely detain anyone under the National Defense Authorization Act. This comes as a blow to the ruling that was given earlier this year, when US District Court Judge Catherine Forrest ruled that the NDAA was unconstitutional. So what does this mean for journalists and why was it overturned? Carl Mayer, attorney for The Mayer Law Group, joins us with the latest.

Nope you're going to get banned. Criticism of Obama (and the rest of the Congress that approved NDAA) is counter-productive to our agenda.

It's morning in America.

War is peace.
Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength.

Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.

Orthodoxy means not thinking--not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.
