    It will be interesting to see how they handle the Separation of Powers.
  5. Think Congress will ever again insist upon having its Constitutional power/prerogative to declare a war before the nation is put into one honored?

    At this point do you really think any politicians (R & D) in the kenyan's regime care about that? All these jack-o__s are jockeying for position in the UN Global Power Appointment scheme.

    Almost whatever it takes to kill the bastards is good enough for me.

    I don't think the Executive Branch will want to review every decision with Judge Scalia. POTUS wants to run on his own unhindered by courts...or Congress.
  9. Sort of like a dictator. Or king. No restraints or oversight. No checks and balances. I can't believe so many here have no problem with this!

    I wonder how long they will claim that it is "due process," because they created a process. I wonder if hey will try to claim the Supreme Court won't be able to hear any challenge of it because nobody who hasn't been approved for a drone strike has a complaint, and the only way to know you're on the list is when a missile hits?

    Sounds like bad fiction. The government declaring someone outlaw without a trial (and chance to challenge he findings is one of those things we were supposed to have gotten rid of in the late 18th century.

    Seems Congress is a little jealous... a "kill list"? Yeah, they're going to want in on that...

    ... which is cool and all, as long as we all agree who "the bastards" are...

    I'm sorry - before THE GOVERNMENT determines who "the bastards" are... what could possibly go wrong with that?
