Noam Chomsky, Daniel Ellsberg and Icelandic parliament member Birgitta Jonsdottir are among the seven witnesses expected to testify in a New York federal court on Thursday in support of a class action lawsuit against the United States government over controversial provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), a military spending bill they claim threatens American's civil liberties and basic human rights.

They have “standing”???
They are writers and believe their livelihoods are threatened because of the chilling effect of this law.
OWS is demonstrating in support of the suit. Makes me dizzy, but there you are.
We’re not doing anything? As if yelling about it to those of like mind in a hermetically sealed echo chamber isn’t “doing something”??! But that’s our way of showing how much we love the Constitution.
Yeah, that much.
Chinas New NDAA Law Is Less Repressive than Obamas Version
Things have gotten so bad here that a communist country is copying Mr. Obamas signature pieces of legislation, but making them more humane than the American versions. The communist Chinese have revealed their latest proposed amendments to detention rules. Unlike the NDAA passed here in America, the Chinese authorities would be required to tell family members if a suspect is arrested.
100 million armed patriotic conservative Americans vs. 1 billion unarmed sheep. Yeah, the Chicomms know that based on sheer manpower alone, they can’t cow their entire population whereas Obama thinks that 1/3 of the US population will lay down their arms when the brown shirts start going door to door.
We shall see.
At least their families will know what happened to them. The total stealth aspect of the U.S. law is very disturbing.
Thanks for posting these links. I think HR 437 is part of the assault too, because it forbids assembly in certain places. Just for protesting you can become a target.
Watching closely, but not execting much.
I think it is for publicity purposes mostly. The media has been avoiding this issue like the pest.
No no... let’s not be mistaken. This will not be enacted by stealth.
Every news story you hear about a “grow house” that was “raided,” be suspicious.
Every news story you hear about a “domestic disturbance” resulting in the death of a man, be suspicious.
Every news story you hear about a white man being killed in the middle of the night during a “possible burglary,” be suspicious.
They might want this to be stealthy, but the media and local LEOs will report the crimes. You just have to be smart enough to see the truth.
