In a rebuke to The Obama Administration and the dark forces in this country that wish to further erode the constitutional rights of American citizens, U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest issued an order that blocks enforcement of a controversial provision of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
A group of reporters sued President Barack Obama, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and The Defense Department over a provision in the NDAA that would have allowed for potential indefinite incarceration by the military of journalist exercising their First Amendment right to report the news and the detention of activist who may be participating in protest against the government.
It is interesting that Judge Forrest was appointed last year to the bench by President Obama. In this writer’s opinion, Barack Obama did something very rare…made a wise choice!
We here at BlackFlagMedia.com salute Judge Forrest for her strength of character and her defense of First Amendment rights on behalf of the American people.
As it says on our masthead…“DON’T TREAD ON THE FIRST AMENDMENT!
