A direct and egregious breach of the Fifth Amendment

 

Following the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia over the weekend the corporate media began speculating on his replacement.

 

David Barron is on the short list.

 

 

He is a 48-year old First Circuit judge and a Harvard law professor who headed up the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel during Obama’s first term.

 

 

“In that capacity, he wrote at least one memo offering the legal rationale for using drone strikes to kill American citizens overseas who were suspected of terrorism,” Alan Greenblatt wrote in 2014.

 

 

The Barron memo reeks of unconstitutionali
 ty.

 

In June, 2014, The New York Times reported on the memo, which was completed in June, 2010 and publicly released in 2014 by a federal appeals court.

 

 

David Barron, then the acting head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel, concluded that it would be lawful for the government to kill Mr. Awlaki, notwithstanding federal statutes against murdering Americans overseas and protections in the Constitution against unreasonable seizures and depriving someone of life without due process of law.

So you can font change smiles... I had a theory but never tried it. lol

Anyway back on topic, something is up, people are now checking on the well being of these judges, one of them hasn't been heard from in 2 days.

And I think 1 of them said Scalia was murdered, but that comment is unconfirmed.

Only the conservative judges need to hide. That doesn't include Commie judge Roberts, unless he's outlived his usefulness by ushering in Obamacare.
