Breaking News: Supreme Court Guantanamo Ruling

Once again, the Supreme Court epically fails.


In the majority opinion, written by Mr. Swing Voter himself, Justice Anthony Kennedy:

“The laws and constitution are designed to survive, and remain in force, in extraordinary times.”

The article goes on:

prisoners in the remote US jail in southern Cuba “have the constitutional privilege of habeas corpus.

As such fantastic Constitutional scholars, the justices ought to know that Article 

I, Section 9 of the Constitution says:

The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it.

I can think of no better 18th-century synonym for “terrorists” than “rebels” or “invaders.” Preventing another 9/11 most definitely tops the agenda for “public safety.”


But of course our unelected masters know better than us.
