Repealing the indefinite detention provisions of NDAA

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) passed last year contain provisions that allow indefinite detention of United States citizens by the military – without a trial.  These provisions violate due process rights protected by the Bill of Rights: the right to a speedy and fair trial and the presumption of innocence. Shahid Buttar Executive Director of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee speaks with Michael about transpartisan efforts to stop these unconstitutional trespasses on our liberty.  Congressman Ron Paul has introduced HR 3785 to repeal Section 1021 of the NDAA.

War on Pain Doctors and Patients

Doctors who treat chronic pain are increasingly targeted, prosecuted, and sent to prison by the Drug Enforcement Agency and Dept. of Justice. This war on doctors has led to widespread undertreatment of patients who require schedule 2 pharmaceuticals to relieve their pain. Siobhan Reynolds of the Pain Relief Network, www.painreliefnetwork.org, is fighting back to help the patients and physicians who are under siege.

In this interview Ms. Reynolds speaks with Michael Ostrolenk of AAPS and Dane vonBreichenruchardt of the U.S. Bill of Rights Foundation, www.usbr.org. She gives an overview of the issues involved and recounts how she has been fined and even faced prison simply by being an effective advocate for those who few others will stand up for.
