Supremes Smackdown On ACLU
You know, for all the high powered legal talent alleged to be inhabiting the nooks and crannies of the ACLU, there doesn't seem to be a lot of common sense to go with it.
It's no secret the ACLU – and most of the Kos Kool-Aid Caucus of the Democratic Party – has been ceaselessly shrieking at the whirlwind about W's efforts to monitor the comings, goings, and conversations of those who would do harm to America and her citizens. This virulent strain of Bush Derangement Syndrome is known to cause those with left-leaning sympathies to believe that "Big Time" Cheney sits up late at night listening in to their conversations about the latest impeachment efforts. Don't bother to tell them there are Islamofascist Murdering Thugs out there who would just love to behead them with a rusty dull butcher knife. Their collective mind is made up. W is out to get them.
Well, today, the Supremes rejected an ACLU appeal of a lawsuit over the "warrantless" wiretapping program. Most times, the Supremes give a reason when they deny an appeal. This time, however, they did not even afford the ACLU any reason what-so-ever as to why they won't be allowed to present their case. The case was rejected "without comment".
Bottom line on this legal issue – nobody could prove their conversations had been monitored; therefore nobody had standing to sue. Calls to several terrorists went unreturned.
And yes, The Pelosi continues in her efforts to blind the US in the face of those same Islamofacist Murdering Thugs. Go figure.
Here endeth the lesson.
