Bad week for America

One of the things we like to do here at Freadom Nation is correct the media when it gets it wrong. And that's something I get the priveledge to do today.

How many times have you heard this: "This was a bad week for president Bush." It was a bad week because the supreme court ruled the detainees being held at Guatanamo Bay have a right to U.S. lawyers.

In essensce, these thugs who tried to kill our U.S. soldiers on foreign soil, men who hate the U.S. and all it stands for, have the same Constitutional rights as the men who captured them. How is this justice?

One Judge can set these people free so they can go right back to what they were doing up to the point they were sent to Guatanamo Bay: killing Americans.

Now these men have the right to go before a judge and ask to be set free. This has not happened yet, but it is possible now with this insane ruling.

Justice Kennedy and the other Justices who made this rulinig firmly believe, as does Obama, that the U.S. Courts should make decisions based on foreign law, while disregarding the Constitution.

So now, for the first time in U.S. history, prisoners of war get to be treated as "common criminals with Constitutional rights."

That is exactly why Obama applauded this ruling, and McCain said it was a bad decision. This shows the character of both candidates, and pegs only McCain as the only true patriot.

And this is exactly why the decision of who we want to be our leader is so important. Obama will nominate activist judges. McCain will nominate judges who will rule by the Constitution. If nothing else, this ruling is sure to fire up the base in support of McCain.

So, I want to take this opportunity to correct the media: This Supreme Court decision is not a set back for the Bush Administration. This did not result in a bad week for the Bush Administration. It resulted in a bad week for America. We are all less safe as a result of this ruling.

And the Justices who favored this ruling should be ashamed.
