Please mark this as one of the key points in the destruction of civil liberties. By signing this executive order, which in itself is unconstitutional,
he has disbanded the judicial system from its rightful activities and exercises, leaving the final decision of ‘guilty’ or ‘not guilty’ in the
hands of a single man who heads this country. Just to give you a little sense of how draconian this is, even Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong,
and the worst dictators in history have never given themselves the legal authority to make the final decision on someone’s life.
He has just signed into law, unconstitutionally, something which will give him supreme authority over any GITMO detainee, he will now be their jury
and their judge, the judges and juries or military tribunals are now irrelevant as the final decision lays in his hands. Just as with the introduction
of every tyrannical act of government it will be sealed into government then expanded upon, soon this act by the President will be given not only to
GITMO detainees but to even further judicial aspects of life. To legal cases involving corporations, the President could decide which corporation wins
or if the corporation wins over the individual.
What then stops the President from making the final decision on the constitutionality of laws? He could leave the Supreme Court intact but declare he
himself has the final decision on all constitutional matters, this will be passed on to the next President to be expanded upon as well.
This has to be worse than any other act this President or his predecessor has ever done. The Patriot Act seems like a Civil libertarian dream over
this. What kind of country will we live in when our President has the final say in every important court case? He takes the side he wants and that
