The ReHomelandization Of Congress

New legislation seeks to establish two separate and unequal systems of law within the USA: One in which people accused of certain crimes are deprived of the right to a fair trial in order to ensure their conviction.

Incoherent Protest Is Worse Than None At All

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Wilmington, Delaware declared Chapter 11 Bankruptcy earlier this month.

At the heart of the issue are more than 200 men being held at [...]

All Guantanamo Prisoners Can Be Prosecuted Now Or Set Free

Fearful politicians knock their knees together and insist that prisoners in Guantanamo not be allowed to go on trial here in the United States. They are frightened that American courts could possibly not convict all of the Guantanamo prisoners. [...]

Congressional Democrats Continue Silence on Kangaroo Courts

Today, I looked again. I searched the online offices of all the most celebrated “progressive” members of the House and Senate. Though they’ve had three days now to review, reflect upon and react to the military tribunal announcement, none of them have dared to challenge it. [...]

Why Doesn’t Obama Just Shoot Detainees in the Head?

New York Times:

Officials said the decision to proceed with military commissions came partly as a result of concerns that some detainees might not be successfully prosecuted in federal courts.

Roll that phrase around your brain a few times. Detainees will not be sent to trials because some detainees might not be found guilty [...]
