“Christmas is not more important than this legislation.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) actually said that with regard to his effort to begin debate on the Senate’s renewal of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).
On Christmas Eve, 1860, South Carolina adopted a resolution declaring itself independent of the United States of America.
At a press conference held Thursday afternoon, four of the leaders of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees announced the completion of the compromise version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2013.
One controversial portion of the NDAA bill passed by the Senate on December 4 didn’t make the cut, however, after the conference committee’s negotiations: the Feinstein-Lee Amendment (passed by the Senate 67-29) — which its authors said would have protected American citizens from indefinite detention.

A resolution sponsored by retiring Representatives Ron Paul (R-Texas) and Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) requiring Attorney General Eric Holder to release all information related to President Obama’s death-by-drone program has failed to pass committee.

Lawyers for a group of journalists challenging the indefinite detention provisions of the Fiscal Year 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) filed an “Emergency Application” with the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday. The motion asks the high court to set aside an appeals court’s stay of the favorable injunction against the NDAA obtained by the journalists/activists turned plaintiffs on September 12.
South Carolina may soon join the ranks of states struggling to reclaim their constitutional sovereignty stolen from them by the federal government.
