If this guy doesn't have the qualifications to answer this, who does?
The guy replied. He actually says jack is a nut. His exact words, and that I was right.
This ends this debate for me. It is another expert on the subject replying that you are complete wrong in every way.

The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
Lincoln's power to call congress did not require a quorum.
...because each Article's requirements apply exclusively to the branch to which they refer.
The Supreme Court struck down Lincoln's use of martial law, ending it.

Under martial law, the Supreme Court has no such authority to do so. Only the Executive branch has that authority, and no President has ever repealed.
I have previously shown, which was confirmed by a constitutional lawyer, that Lincoln's convening of Congress was legal and their actions legal even if it doesn't fit a quorum number that you want them to have.
What exactly do you think declaring unconstitutional means?
As such, the Supreme Court can and has in fact struck down martial law, which was nullified, and it had every authority to do so. The constitution has been in full effect ever since.
This is why you can sue for damages a law caused you which is later declared unconstitutional.
Show me where the Supreme Court has no power during martial law.
3. Martial law in a hostile country consists in the suspension by the occupying military authority of the criminal and civil law, and of the domestic administration and government in the occupied place or territory, and in the substitution of military rule and force for the same, as well as in the dictation of general laws, as far as military necessity requires this suspension, substitution, or dictation.
2. Martial law does not cease during the hostile occupation, except by special proclamation, ordered by the commander-in-chief, or by special mention in the treaty of peace concluding the war, when the occupation of a place or territory continues beyond the conclusion of peace as one of the conditions of the same.
Any amount of brief political science analysis of the situation would show you the obvious reason why the confederacy would never do such a thing: they were attempting to make the government look illegitimate, by bringing suit they would be giving an air of legitimacy to the union.
...air of legitimacy to a government which they just declared was illegitimate (thus the reason for their withdrawl).
