NDAA 2012 Update: Odrona Demands Dismissal Of Section 1021 Injunction

Odrona The Indefinite Detainer NDAA

Corporate puppet and wannabe fascist dictator Barack Obama aka Bushbama aka Bushbamney wants to keep the power to make you disappear asserted in AUMF 2001.

NDAA 2012 UPDATE: ODRONA DEMANDS DISMISSAL OF SECTION 1021 INJUNCTION

“Dissent without civil disobedience is consent.”-Henry David Thoreau

In the case of Christopher Hedges et al v. Barack Obama et al (Case 1:12-cv-00331-KBF) the fascist regime of corporate puppet president Barack Bushbamney Odrona just filed its brief in opposition to a permanent injunction against the indefinite detention of American citizens without charge or trial provisions of Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA 2012|Public Law 112–81), which passed both houses of Congress with broad bipartisan – as in both Democratic and Republican – support before being signed into law by Obama last New Year’s Eve while you were out celebrating and he was in Hawaii and a safe distance away from the protest you never made. Their Preliminary Statement reads as follows:

)(

Defendants Barack Obama,Leon Panetta, and the Department of Defense (collectively, the “government”) respectfully submit this memorandum in opposition to plaintiffs’ request for a permanent injunction against the operation of a portion of section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, Pub. L. 112-81, 125 Stat. 1298 (Dec. 31, 2011) (the “NDAA”), and in support of the government’s request that the Court enter final judgment in its favor.

Plaintiffs present a truly extraordinary claim in this action. They seek to enjoin the operation of a statute enacted by Congress and signed into law by the President, a statute that codifies a longstanding Executive military-detention authority that has been upheld by the courts, and therefore enjoys the endorsement of all three branches of the government. While that alone would be an ambitious endeavor, plaintiffs reach even further, and claim that they, as journalists and activists, may obtain an injunction to invalidate the statute on its face, to apply worldwide, and, most unusually, to prohibit certain uses of the military detention authority exercised by the United States and the Commander-in-Chief during an ongoing armed conflict. Any one of those facts should cause extreme hesitation by the Court; taken together, they require the most exacting scrutiny to ensure that if the judicial power is to be exercised in such a far-reaching manner it is clearly within the Court’s jurisdiction to do so. Yet plaintiffs cannot come close to establishing that jurisdiction, as they cannot carry their burden of demonstrating even the basic elements of standing. They claim they fear military detention, based on an erroneous interpretation of the statute that would extend its scope in direct contradiction of the statute’s words, and with no regard for the context that gives it meaning. They persist in asserting that interpretation even though it is contravened by over a decade of history; they cannot point to a single example of the military’s detaining anyone for engaging in conduct even remotely similar to the type of expressive activities they allege could lead to detention. And they continue to seek unprecedented injunctive relief despite already obtaining assurance from the government in this case that based on their allegations they are not detainable under this statute. Plaintiffs therefore have fallen far short of meeting their burden to show they have been injured by the statute; their complaints are the types of generalized grievances of allegedly unlawful government conduct that have been repeatedly held insufficient to support standing.

Even if plaintiffs had some cognizable injuries, those harms would not be redressed by an injunction against section 1021; as plaintiffs themselves acknowledge, such an injunction would have “nil” effect, for the government would continue to possess the identical detention authority under the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force. Plaintiffs thus would achieve no meaningful relief from the injunction they seek, and lack standing for that reason as well. Because plaintiffs lack standing, this Court need not (and must not) unnecessarily decide the constitutional questions plaintiffs present.

If it were necessary to reach the merits, plaintiffs’ claims would fail. Their facial and overbreadth challenges, if even appropriate in this context, founder on the indisputable fact that section 1021 has a plainly legitimate sweep that dwarfs the purported infringement on free expression; indeed, the statute is not even aimed at speech or expressive conduct. Nor is the statute unconstitutionally vague: it does not prohibit any conduct and therefore is not even subject to vagueness analysis. Even if it were it would still be valid, as its meaning as informed by context is more than clear enough to meet constitutional standards. All of plaintiffs’ claims on the merits fail, but in particular none of their theories can come close to justifying the invalidation of the non-punitive war-time authority that Congress affirmed in section 1021.

For all those reasons, the Court should enter judgment for the government.

Heads up for Twitter users…

Apparently tweeting the truth about greedy corporations or corrupt politicians is all it takes to get yourself censored on Twitter. Since our recent unrelated disclosures that (a) eating a bowl of Cheerios is no more “heart healthy” than eating a bowl of dirt ( http://bit.ly/zDYa45 ) and (b) many American Bikers suffer from Sensenbrenner Syndrome ( http://bit.ly/MBBIBQ ), tweets from @VVVPR are being blocked from the Twitter search stream. If you are a Twitter user, we ask you to tweet @Support and demand they respond to ticket #5626282 and end their spineless censorship of @VVVPR.

THERE ARE DIFFERENCES between the rights and privileges accorded to citizens of China, Russia and the USA, but those differences are rapidly dwindling in both number and degree. Thanks to institutional indoctrination and decades of sophisticated mental manipulation by an elite-controlled mainstream media – now reinforced by covert and overt pressures to conform with carefully-crafted norms programmed into social media for projection in real life – the American Sheeple can no longer distinguish the liberties of democracy from the favoritism of fascism. They’ve been fattened up with junk food and GMO, and had the fight bred right out of them. They don’t care anymore about freedom; they just want a comfortable cell. If that were not the case then the 99% – or at least the 46 million Americans who now live in poverty – would be asking questions like these:

  • Are free speech zones most effective as soapboxes, or censorship?
  • Is a demonstration in a free speech zone an effective protest?
  • Does a demonstration with a parade permit create a disruption?
  • Does a protest that creates no disruption get any attention?
  • Does a protest that gets no attention make any difference?

I recently heard a talking head say police states allow a certain amount of open protest to serve as a pressure relief valve to avoid open rebellion, and that the Occupy Movement has been tolerated to the extent it has primarily for that purpose. But before being assassinated by the ‘magic bullet’ of ‘lone gunman’ Lee Harvey Oswald in 1963, John F. Kennedy said “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

They can’t both be right…

Multi-Chem: Less Bragging About Fracking?

Multi-Chem: Citizens Against Multi-Chem

Lowering their fracking profile after a bungled blending blast, this self-proclaimed master fracker can now be found hawking “cleaner fracs through chemistry”.

MULTI-CHEM: LESS BRAGGING ABOUT FRACKING?

A few days ago we issued a release about Multi-Chem – Halliburton’s newly-acquired oilfield production chemicals and fracking subsidiary – that included the following:

“Multi-Chem describes itself as ‘the global leader in EGR’ – where EGR stands for Enhanced Gas Recovery technologies such as hydraulic fracture stimulation, also called hydraulic fracturing, known and loathed by many of us as ‘fracking’, but referred to by dirty energy insiders as simply ‘frac’. Prior to its acquisition by Halliburton last October, being a frac specialist – with an extensive network of storage facilities and a fleet of frac trucks filled with ecosystem-destroying amalgams of toxic frac fluids and poisonous frac additives – made Multi-Chem one of the largest oil & gas production chemical companies in the world. Their ‘success’ had little to do with any questionable claims they ‘Think Safety’.”

http://tinyurl.com/7w9skcl

That information was drawn from the 29-slide “Multi-Chem 2011 Capabilities Presentation” that we linked in with a tiny URL which then looked like this…

http://tinyurl.com/6uz2hdb

…but now looks like this…

http://tinyurl.com/7d3g55g

…and a lot like their also-removed “Hydraulic Fracturing in Unconventional Shale Plays” presentation:

http://tinyurl.com/7ck2d29

It appears that “the global leader in EGR” is lowering their online profile for hydraulic fracturing. But don’t think for a moment that Multi-Chem the Frac King is no longer fracking – at least not while their home page looks like this:

Perhaps they’ve just been given a reason not to brag about it so much:

DEATH BY INJECTION [CHEMICALS]

The dirty politic$ of dirty energy: Similar we suspect to many Louisiana politician$, the “Vermilion Parish Police Jury” – like a County Commission, members and confederates including Nathan Granger, Linda Duhon, Selina Perry, Dane Hebert, Allen LeMaire, Ronald Darby, Wayne Touchet, Mark Poche, Paul Bourgeois, Errol J. Domingues, Kevin Sagrera, Ronald “Dago” Menard, Pervis Gaspard, Cloris J. Boudreaux, Sandrus Stelly and Leon Broussard – would rather place their constituents in harm’s way than find a way to stop Halliburton from building an ecohazardous 64-acre Multi-Chem oilfield/frac blending abomination in a residential area directly over Southwest Louisiana’s only freshwater aquifer:


http://tinyurl.com/8yqg7sb

http://vermilionparishpolicejury.com/PJ_members.html
(includes their home addresses and telephone numbers)

As Marcella Manuel of Citizens Against Multi-Chem advises, “In addition to storm control and water discharge permits, multi-chem/Halliburton has also applied for an emissions permit. This means they will be allowed to vaporize into your air up to 25 tons of toxic/hazardous air pollutants per year. Some of these are considered carcinogenic while others attack the nervous system, liver, lungs, heart, etc. Think about that the next time you hear someone saying ‘I just don’t think a chemical plant is that big of a deal.’ Help them understand The Truth instead of the propaganda.”

According to environmental health and justice organization LaBucketBrigade.org:

  • Louisiana is 2nd in the nation for benzene pollution; benzene is a known carcinogen.
  • Louisiana is 2nd in the nation for cancer mortality.
  • Louisiana is 4th in the nation for hazardous air pollution from the petrochemical industry.
  • Louisiana is 8th in the nation for carcinogenic air pollution from the petrochemical industry.


http://tinyurl.com/84m88js

Given that all Louisiana petrochemical polluters like Multi-Chem need to release 25 tons or more of toxic carcinogens into the environment is a “permit”, is there any question as to why?
