You can find out some wonderful things at the Volokh Conspiracy. For instance I always thought that foreign terrorists didn’t deserve due process or any other provision of the Constitution because they weren’t, you know, citizens. That the pols clamoring for same were merely obstructionists.
Turns out I was wrong. “The Founding generation routinely applied the Bill of Rights as a constraint on U.S. government actions abroad, including those directed at non-citizens. For example, it was taken for granted that suspected pirates captured at sea, whether U.S. citizens or not, were entitled to the ‘due process of law’ guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment.”
Which makes Trump’s travel ban on certain Muslim countries unconstitutional. Even though Bronco Bama got away with it.

“Allahu akbar” means “Allah is greater” — not “God is greatest.”
He yelled Allahu Akbar as he dismounted the truck he used to kill eight and injure 15. But it’s not, as the media always uses it “God is Great,” but “Allah is Greater.”
Which makes sense. If you were just killing for God, it wouldn’t make much of a battle cry, not as much of a one as when you’re killing for a greater god.
“Adm. John Richardson, U.S. Navy chief of operations, told reporters that the collision is ‘obviously an extremely serious incident, and is the second such incident in a very short period of time, inside of three months, and, you know, very similar as well, and is the [latest] of a series of incidents in the Pacific Fleet in particular. And that gives great cause for concern that there is something out there that we’re not getting at.'”
No kidding, Sherlock. Second destroyer hit by a tanker, this time in broad daylight, in three months. Following a cruiser collision earlier this year with a fishing boat and a cruiser grounding in Tokyo Bay. Why all in the Pacific?
UPDATE: Seventh Fleet c.o. gets the boot. Well, that’s a start.
Breitbart eviscerates the WaPo’s pretend Jefferson Iftar dinner at the White House in 1805.
“To claim that the very first president to authorize war against Muslims would have hosted a dinner to honor Islam is an absurdity of the first order.”
It’s an absurdity started by—who else?—Bronc0 Bama, the childhood Muslim his own self.
