Podcast Show #95: The Fight against the National Defense Authorization ACT (NDAA)

The Boiling Frogs Show Presents Carl Mayer

BFP Podcast Logo

Carl Mayer returns to update desperate, disingenuous legal maneuvers from the "Justice" Department. Bottom line: unconstitutional detention rules are back in effect. Mayer and his co-counsel Bruce Afran represent Chris Hedges, Daniel Ellsberg and other plaintiffs, who won a permanent injunction against the broad, vague detention policies in section 1021 b 2 of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). In this in-depth interview, Mayer first updates us on the scramble by government lawyers to reinstate the law, leading to a short-term "stay" of the ruling by Judge Katherine Forrest by an appeals court judge, following Forrest's refusal. Mayer offers commentary on key portions of Judge Forrest's ruling of September 12, which is blunt and unusual in many respects. You can download the ruling and follow the page references as we go through it. There's much more, including many quotes from the clear and blunt court ruling.

Mayer's team is fighting this case pro bono. You can contribute to help with legal expenses here or here.

  1. The download link leads only to the 2 minute preview.

  2. Thank you Peter B, Carl Mayer, and judge Forrest! This is an excellent interview. Made me start daydreaming about judge Forrest just having the lawyers for/and the Obama administration locked up for attempted tyranny. As Mr. Mayer noted, it is a relief to know that there are still some public servants out there who are not compromised.

    I really appreciate you bringing us the news about this good fight. Please keep us informed about future developments with it. Thanks!

    @Chuck: I usually just click on the link in the rectangle that says “Audio MP3″. You can use the right-click(PC)/save as with that link to download.
