I find this to be very strange, seeing how the Magna Carta is now Called The Magna Charter, I did look around a bit, and this is not shared here...please explain why Obama did this.
A federal judge has told the Obama administration that all Americans are protected by her preliminary injunction preventing enforcement of a citizen detention clause in a new federal law supported by Obama.
The federal government had told the judge it concluded that her recent ruling exempted only the named plaintiffs in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the provision.
That interpretation would have enabled the government to enforce the detention provision against all Americans except the plaintiffs.
U.S. District Judge Katherine B. Forrest shot back in a new Memorandum Opinion and Order yesterday that said because the possible injury to Americans includes the loss of their rights, her order was intended to protect everyone.
To Repeal Section 1021 of
Whereas Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, on 31 December 2011, signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011; and
Whereas the aforementioned Act is repugnant to all American ideals, traditions, customs, and laws, inasmuch as it sets at naught all traditions and principles of Law and Justice derived from nine centuries of legal custom enshrined in the Common Law of the English-speaking Peoples, and derived from Magna Carta Libertatum of the 13th century and from theConstitution of the United States, as amended; and Whereas the Congress of the United States, in passing this hateful Act, did act without the authority of the Constitution of the United States, as amended;
and Whereas the aforementioned Act is unlawful, inasmuch as it violates both the letter and the spirit of the Constitution of the United States in numerous particulars, to wit, Article I, Section nine, which specifically prohibits the suspension of the Writ of Habeas Corpus, which Writ has a 900-year-long tradition among the English-speaking Peoples of the world, rendering thus the aforementioned Act repugnant to the ideals, customs, and interests of a Free People; and
Whereas the aforementioned Act further violates our country’s Constitution both in letter and in spirit by effectively, if not specifically, replacing the ancient Writ of Habeas Corpus with the ancient and tyrannical custom of attainder, which tyrannical custom was outlawed not only by Magna Carta Libertatum in the 13th century, but also by the Constitution of the United States in the 18th century,
in and by which it is specifically forbidden under Article I, Section nine, insofar as the aforementioned Act suspends the right of the accused to the presumption of innocence and to the ancient protection of Habeas Corpus, thereby condemning to extrajudicial punishment any and all persons, including American Citizens, who might be accused under the aforementioned Act;
and Whereas the aforementioned Act further violates, both in letter and in spirit, the Bill of Rights of the United States in numerous particulars, to wit, the Fifth Amendment, the Sixth Amendment, and the Ninth Amendment;
and Whereas the practical grounds that are held by the federal government to warrant the anti-terror portions of this odious Act are, in fact, themselves groundless, given that Public Health statistics show that death from acts of terrorism is less likely than death from dog bites, from lightning strikes, from diarrhea, and from misadventure with bathtubs and vending machines.
