    Actually, it was on FreedomWatch that Clyburn stated that "Most of what we do isn't in the Constitution". It was when Napolitano was on "Brian and the Judge".

    Oops, I meant it was NOT on Freedom Watch.

    What he said at the end. How can Assange be guaranteed the rights of the First Amendment? He isn't an American. How can someone who isn't an American be protected by the American Constitution?

    If you read the Constitution, it states "persons" not Americans. Mr. Assange was born with natural rights, or, was handed down to him by his creator, which ever path you choose to take on this issue.
    Same idea that those individuals are you locked up at Gitmo, have the right to due process, and habeas corpus. Rights are just for Americans, but for all human beings.

    Jean is correct. Rights, as they are observed by the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, apply to all human beings. Because they come from God- not government and not man. Authority can only be given from a higher power, and lesser powers can not contradict it. That's how reality works.

    But! During a time of war, all bets are off. You can call this the ultimate Right giver/taker. The 2nd Amendment. The Right of Absolute Force which grants all other Rights protection. Also known as War.

    License to kill is issued as a Nation. And we are at War. Seriously, stop for a moment, and wrap your head around this. WE ARE AT WAR JAGOFFS! Is it sinking in yet? I know Obama likes to call Mayonaisse 10 different things, but it's still Mayonaisse. And war is still war.

    And we are dying because of this asshole. And he is releasing this information to put our troops in harms way in 3 Countries. And that's bad if your son is among one of those enlisted and serving.

    Freedom has nothing to do with telling the enemy where your troops are and where their military depot's are around the world.

    That inflicts harm on a Nation as a whole. That's called espionage if they are not US Citizens. It's called High Treason if they are US Citizens. Neither end well for any party. One party might be killed, and the other might have the stage set for a near future collapse. A perfectly placed bomb in accordance with leaking troop movements and locations. The possibilities are endless. And the death's are on your hands for not stopping it.

    Yes, “we” are at war. Why? Because the American state says so. If you want to talk about orifices, how about the ones who lied and demagogued us into these wars, or who continue to put our troops in a position where their success is dependent on somebody else’s performance?
    And what about the cowardly sphincters in Congress who abdicated their constitutional duty by resolving to let the president start a war any time he felt like it? This after decades of sticking their noses into other peoples’ business all over the globe, ensuring the inevitable blowback.
    The American state is an evil beast, and it is not the same thing as America. Anybody who has a son enlisted should get him out as soon as possible, and the rest of us should make sure our kids never “serve” this monster in the first place.
    I can’t say for sure there will be no deaths because of WikiLeaks, but I know of none so far, and if the state’s lapdog press reports any I will be skeptical. Contrast that with the thousands of troops who have died in these fiascos, and the hundreds of thousands of innocent victims with whom I had no quarrel.

    Judge, please don't bring Caroline back on the show. She interrupts and she has no logic. She doesn't fully answer questions. She hides her lack of comprehension and logic underneath fancy words so she can sound smart. If you want to have a liberal point of view to be fair, please at least have someone who's smart and not rude.

    Think about that for a minute. Do you really want to give more air time to someone who can effectively push a statist agenda? I really can't stand Nancy Skinner, at least as she appears on these programs, but I figure a ranting lunatic like her does a lot of good for the advancement of liberty. Let them parade their stupidity.

    While I agree with your observations about Caroline, free speech/free market Carla. Caroline, I don't give a CRAP how long the bill was worked on or posted! That justifies nothing. This kind of legislation is called LEGAL PLUNDER. It's theft. It's something that if I do outside the authority of Congress I go to prison for. For YOU to endorse it makes YOU complicit to a crime. Get it?!!

    Although I agree with your assessment of Caroline, you might want to consider a couple things: 1, she is certainly less unpleasant than Nancy Skinner. 2. I think the token liberals appear on the show as simply a sounding board so the other panelists can riff off of their idiotic comments. 3. I personally find it unlikely the Judge will be able to find someone who can argue the liberal perspective and still sound intelligent. They tend to be mutually exclusive.

    Sorry for the double post. I did not see that my previous comment had been added.

    Thank goodness for Judge N (and Stossel). Finally, some Libertarians on national shows!

    on the show with gillespie, ward, and welch, they had the opportunity to discuss "the fair tax plan" and didn't — why doesn't anyone inform america of this common sense approach to our tax and budget problems?
