More Arizona Based Sedition

McCain: 'Serious mistake' if car bombing suspect was Mirandized

The distinguished gentleman from Arizona, Senator John McCain, decorated war veteran, elder statesman of the United States Senator, perennial candidate for President of the United States,  is categorically mistaken. Either Americans universally recognize and honor our country's traditional rule of law, or the very ‘war’ we're said to be fighting is for naught. We’re fighting first for America’s assumed right to push anybody in the world around to serve America's national interest, meaning the oil to drive industry, drive arms manufactory, and promote those at the top of the American capitalism paradigm: the so-called American dream. Everything else is a side issue, and everybody else are bystanders. These points are only possible because of the tenuous protective vaneer established by the very existence and application the United States Constitution. One cannot pick and choose which parts of it one will recognize and honor as the Religious Right does with it’s other sacred texts. Trying to merely undermines the whole document. 

Think Richard Nixon and the Watergate coverup, Ronald Reagan/Bush 41  and the Iran/Contra bombs for cash to circumvent Congressional limitations spectacle, Bush 43 abuse of the Patriot Act, illegal wiretaps, selective intelligence secrecy for national security ruse, Claimed immunity from court orders both domestic and international,  the Valerie Plame affair, each a Constitutional Crisis.

Even were this guy, Faisal Shahzad, not an American citizen who acted, incidentally, on American soil, he and everybody else who comes into contact with any facet of United States's lawful juristiction is both subject to and protected, as is everybody, again, who comes into contact with the U.S. A., by the Constitution of the United States. Denying equal access, equal protection, under the law is denying equal Justice under the law. Either we’re a nation ruled by law or we’re not. McCain’s suggestion is seditious, anti-constitutional political treachery. He is countermanding his own oath of office to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States against all threats, foreign and domestic. As a private citizen and a United States Senator, he avails himself of his Constitutional First Amendment right of Freedom of Speech. Were he still in uniform, he’d be subject to court martial. What McCain suggests is even more threatening and dangerous to America than a car bomb terrorist act that could have killed tens if not hundreds of people. McCain’s seditious threat to the integrity of the United States Constitution effects every man, woman, and child citizen as well as every visitor, immigrant, legal or illegal resident of our soverign land.
