The Schiavo Backdraft is About to Hit the Fan
The GOP is on the rampage over Terri Schiavo and their big lie that "activist judges killed her". Keep in mind almost every single judge who heard the Schiavo case in the countless court appearances were conservative Republican judges who had been appointed by the GOP. But the Constitutional Restoration Act proposed by Republicans in the 109th congress will make it possible for the Congress to charge any judge with a crime who disagrees with the concept that all law, liberty, and government comes only from God. The Constitution Restoration Act of 2005: Amends the Federal judicial code to prohibit the U.S. Supreme Court and the Federal district courts from exercising jurisdiction over any matter in which relief is sought against an entity of Federal, State, or local government or an officer or agent of such government concerning that entity's, officer's, or agent's acknowledgment of God as the sovereign source of law, liberty, or government. Scary, no? And since Tom DeLay has declared "war" on the judicial system while talking to Brit Hume, you have to wonder how far will this frightening destruction of our Constitution go? At least one Dem senator sees the scary ass writing on the wall, so Sen. Lautenberg asks if a federal law was broken when the GOP threatened judges? Hmm... maybe.
