Subject: RE: BS: Spying, Secrecy, and Presidential Power
An easy listen(?) - not on a dial-up connection; but after I left it alone for an hour and came back and re-played it, an excellent program.

Most of what was said was old news to a few of us, although even that gained some additional perspective.

The one rather chilling tidbit tossed out, that I had NOT known about, was that judges on the "Security Court" are appointed by the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court - who acts alone in this. I had looked for information on how the court was set up; but got only that the judges were appointed "by the Supreme Court" and for rotating and fairly short assignments. [note to self: verification?]

Guess whose new CJSC is sitting now.

So in 6 months or a year, when/(if?) the administration is forced to cease ignoring the court, the judges on the court will all have been appointed by the (alleged) criminal(s).(?)

Hitler could have taken lessons, instead of t'other way around.
