The Obama Administration is yet again acting without congressional approval, this time to purchase a $165 million prison in western Illinois. Thomson Correctional Center, which was built in 2001, will now be owned and run by the federal government.
Coincidence or the NDAA in ACTION?
Late night, a federal appeals court gave the Obama Administration what they were asking for, the right to lock up American Citizens without a trial.
Earlier in the week, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit Judge Raymond Lohier issued a temporary hold on last month’s ruling that would have blocked the Obama Administrations attempts to enforce the indefinite detention provisions in the controversial National defense bill.
Then came another blow to liberty, as a three judge panel ruled late last night that the Obama administration could legally lock up American citizens without a trial. In the official court documents the court concluded that, “the public interest weighs in favor of granting the government’s motion for a stay.”
