    from the guy who's a mockingbird

    “this was not an Act of the President

    this was an Act of the Commander in Chief

    and per Myers 1926

    'If there is a principle in our Constitution,

    indeed in any free Constitution more sacred than another,

    it is that which separates the legislative, executive and judicial powers.

    Mr. Vining said:
    'The Departments of Foreign Affairs and War

    are peculiarly within the powers of the President,

    and he must be responsible for them;

    but take away his controlling power,

    and upon what principle do you require his responsibility?


    He is declared to be commander-in-chief of the Army and Navy of the United States. The duties with are thus imposed upon him he is further enabled to perform by the recognition in the Constitution

    In all such cases, the discretion to be exercised is that of the President in determining the national public interest and in directing the action to be taken by his executive subordinates to protect it.

    to support this C.J. Marshall
    that a law repugnant to the constitution is void; and that courts, as well as other departments, are bound by that instrument.

    5. U.S. (1 Cranch) 137, 180

    [T]he constitution controls any legislative act repugnant to it. (same)”
