The Honorable Anna Diggs Taylor
"The Office of the Chief Executive has itself been created, with its powers, by the Constitution. There are no hereditary Kings in America and no power not created by the Constitution."
"The President of the United States is himself created by that same Constitution."
Is that the wording of a "left-wing Michigan federal jurist"?
(link: "Jihad's Courtroom Win," New York Post, August 18)?
Reading the opinion handed down in the latest case of Americans v. Bush-NSA (not the true title) is like tasting your first homemade chocolate chip cookie: there is a real gushing delight in tasting this civics lesson, a smattering of 8th grade knowledge (of which the current administration is apparently not aware), combined with the legal history in Constitutional law, through which I well remember the suffering of keeping straight the lines of cases.
Is anyone ready to read such a foundational link to America's future? The Honorable Judge Taylor has cleanly reminded the President, his staff and supporters of their role in the stewardship of the august office of the President, a role that became worldwide, as the power of America overtook the world economies and political spheres of influence: a stewardship that has failed, for the near future, with deadly consequences.
This opinion should be read by anyone who wants American values to return to daily life: the real values, not the trumped-up FreedomFries garbage that has been spewn daily for over ten years.
Chapeau! Hoorah for Judge Taylor.
