Application language said:

"Unless this Court lifts the stay, core constitutional rights will continue to be violated and the status quo that the military cannot detain civilians will be upended pending an appeal process that could take many months if not years."

It stressed that Americans are "in actual and imminent danger of losing their core First Amendment rights and fundamental Equal Protection liberties."

On December 14, Ginsburg denied their request. She claimed it improper to interfere with appeals judges expediting their ongoing review. She said caution should be exercised in light of nullifying a lower court ruling.

Appeals judges will rule next year. If injunctive relief is denied, expect petitioning the Supreme Court to follow.

A Final Comment

On May 18, the House passed the 2013 NDAA 299 - 120.

On December 21, the Senate followed suit 81 - 14.

Obama will choose time and place to enact it. Doing so is criminal lawlessness. Malfeasance comes easy to him. He's a serial war criminal.

Both Houses trashed international and constitutional law. They further institutionalized imperial wars. 

They also endorsed locking up US citizens and permanent residents uncharged. They favor holding them indefinitely in military prisons. 

They support denying them due process and judicial fairness. They judge them guilty by accusation.

Tyranny came one step closer to full-blown. Its full force could arrive any time.
