Supreme Court Denies NDAA Lawsuit

On September 12th, 2012, Federal District Judge Katherine B. Forrest issued a permanent injunction against enforcement of Section 1021 of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act. In July 2013, the 2nd Circuit ruled the plaintiffs did not have standing to challenge that law.

Monday, the Supreme Court put the final nail in this suit by denying to hear the case, without comment.

The lawsuit at issue, Hedges v. Obama, was brought in early 2012 by a group of journalists, scholars and activists. Containing such noted figures as Noam Chomsky, Daniel Ellsberg, journalist Chris Hedges, and others, this “Freedom 7” challenged Section 1021 of the 2012 NDAA as unconstitutionally overbroad.

This section determines who is covered by the 2012 NDAA, and contains such vague terms as “substantial support” “direct support,” and “belligerent act” and, if one falls under one of these terms, they could be subject to indefinite military detention without charge or trial.

Dan Johnson, PANDA National Director, said:

In 1944 the Supreme Court approved the pre-emptive detention of over 110,000 Japanese-Americans. The Court’s denial 70 years later proves that we cannot rely on 9 people in black robes to defend our freedom.

It is now up to the states, cities, counties, and people of this nation to show the Supreme Court that it is not the final arbiter of our human rights. As 5 cities have already done so, I urge Americans across the country to begin action to ban these sections in their communities, raise awareness, and push back against this denial. If Washington D.C. thinks this is the last they will hear from us, they are very, very wrong.

In a statement on the outcome of this denial, lead plaintiff Tangerine Bolen wrote:

We are no longer a nation ruled by laws. We are nation ruled by men who have so steeped themselves in a false narrative that at the same time they are exponentially increasing the ranks of terrorists, they are destroying the rule of law itself. It is madness upon madness – the classic tale of becoming the evil you purport to fight while believing you remain righteous.

If the outcome of this lawsuit does not cement the fact that the courts will not defend the Constitution, nor our rights with it, there is little more evidence to be presented. The Federal tier has failed us. The states, localities, and eventually the people, are where we will stand. As we resist, the work of the plaintiffs will not be forgotten.

Grab the packet and start taking back your city:
Invite others to get breaking news from the NDAA Resistance:





  1. The outcry that our Nation is in peril, is not true anymore, and hasn’t been for quite some time. Our freedom and natural rights are effectively gone. The three branches of our government will not comply with their oath. The central government in D.C., the “FEDS”, can no longer be thought of as representing the people. The evidence is clear, as witnessed in the latest events in Nevada.
    Do not allow these events to depress you or allow them to loosen the bolts that hold your faith in the Constitution. The most important idea is the fact that the Constitution is alive and well in the hearts and minds of the people. Work to reinforce your community, county, city governments and D.C. does is what D.C. is, to “H” with them. For the Republic.

  2. Yes, it is up to us now, even to armed confrontation.Anyone who doubts this need only look at this Supreme Court Decision. We are on our own in our states, Counties and cities.I want to stress that there are still rays of hope in the political process. Give your active support to true liberty candidates, and to true legislators.Despite our reputation as the “Peoples Republic of California”,we do have such true liberty minded legislators and officials here. On Oct.1st, the Governor signed into law the “California Liberty Preservation Act” authored by Assemblyman and gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly. CLPA specifically forbids any state employee to assist the Feds with 1021 or 1022.
    Still and all, we must put our bodies in the way of the Facist juggernaut, NOW!in a dry riverbed or in a Boy Scout camp in Texas.

  3. I hope both the leaders of this organization and the men following it understand that this lawsuit was brought by essentially what amount to socialist (and spiritual) intellectuals. Chris Hedges may be the brightest force for intellect and morality (and living the christian beatitudes) alive today. You should understand that these people are NOT your enemy, and never have been. You have been alienated from them by parties in power who express their own self-interest over any and all higher causes; they are the ruling elite, and they come in both democrat and republican flavors. These people in power who would divide us are the enemy; not socialism, not intellectualism.
