America Will Regret High Court's Decision

by Ken Blackwell - June 17th, 2008 - Townhall.com

The Supreme Court’s 5-4 opinion in Boumediene v. Bush will go down as one of the most egregiously-wrong decisions in history. Breaking 200 years of settled precedent, the Court has rewritten the Constitution’s allocation of national security powers. In essence, the narrow majority attacked the actions of a Commander-in-Chief in time of war. It attacked the law as rewritten by Congress in response to a prior decision of this very Court. And it attacked the Court by aggressively ignoring its own prior decisions. The "logic" of this case sets up a bare majority of the Justices as supreme over the President, the Congress, and even other decisions of the Court itself.

The only problem that I have with this article is that it is so logical and not sufficiently emotional. It is a very intelligent assessment of the the basis for seeing this ruling as wrong even despite using words like egregious. However the abuse of power by these 5 tyrants does not appear to be seen as despicable as it should. This ruling is how these judicial tyrants keep taking more and more control of our nation in their quest for "the rule of judges".

At least it is not like George Will's article defending this idiocy.
