Five weeks ago it was made public how a pillar of American journalism, New York Times took clearance from CIA before criticizing the POTUS.

Instead of being a check on the executive, the US judiciary has a 200-year history of rubber stamping the worst excesses of the GOTUS – slavery, discrimination, segregation, restricting non-English education.

Allowing implementation of NDAA is another in that long list.

No major news agency or newspaper has reported on the judicial order after a copy became available in the last 12 hours. The original order was passed on September 18th, 2012.

Appeals Court Judges Denny Chin, Raymond Lohier, and Christopher Droney agreed with the government that the plaintiffs – journalists and activists – “are in no danger whatsoever of ever being captured and detained by the U.S. military” because the NDAA doesn’t “affect the existing rights of United States citizens or other individuals arrested in the United States.”

The plaintiffs had successfully argued to Judge Forrest that some provisions of the indefinite detention clause are so vague they would chill free speech and restrict the ability to associate with people the government doesn’t like.
