    an "unlawful enemy combatant" for "aiding terrorists"... tried under the MCA in a military kangaroo court... shipped off to some prison... all of his assets seized... his family ruined.

    And the media?

    They will air it 24/7... just so the word gets out... "screw with the gov't, and this is you".

    The "rule of law"; it applies to you and me, but not the rich, the Republican or the celebrity. Welcome to America!

      this is why IMPEACHMENT is the only solution.  They cannot claim executive privilege if what they are trying to hide is illegal.  Also, they have to release if their is some level of proof or a legal standard that is considered to be criminal.  Right?

      •  sure... IF we had a congress that would DO IT (1+ / 0-)

        but we don't.

        The Dem's in Congress are not going to impeach.  They are not going to do anything more then hold hearings, get sneered at, get told to fuck off when they issue subpeona's, and then vote to give the administration whatever it wants.

        THAT is what we have in congress.

        So yes, impeachment is the only solution... too bad it will never occur.
