Comment Re:The border exception is a usurpation. (Score 1) 294

The Supreme Court has held that the Constitution only applies to U.S. territory.

Yeah, and they fucked up Korematsu, Dred Scott and Kelo too. What's your point?

Technically it is Cuban territory being leased to the U.S.

Which is irrelevant to the bill of rights. The fifth amendment doesn't say "unless you stash the people you kidnapped on foreign soil". For any American official to hold anyone in custody without trial is a crime.

all countries need to protect themselves from unlawful entry

This is a reason for positively identifying anyone seeking entry. It's not an argument for violating their 4th amendment rights.

Comment The border exception is a usurpation. (Score 2) 294

The US Constitution is the entirety of the legal basis for the very existence of the American federal government. Is it binding upon all American government officials, agents, and employees at all times and all places. There is no provision in the constitution for the suspension of the bill of rights at the border, and the fact that our rights are routinely violated when entering the country is because our courts are derelict in their duty to enforce the constitution.

as the bible dictates the universe being created by God for man

I think that you're making assumptions about what the Bible actually says.

Earth was made for man.

I'm not a Christian but I know their book. It does not preclude intelligent life elsewhere in the universe, in fact, it might even suggest that there is. John 10:16 mentions "Other sheep" who are "not of this sheep pen(or fold)". Could those other sheep or the other fold refer to non-humans who are not on this planet? It's debatable.

Comment Re:Let's be clear on what we mean by election hack (Score 0) 248

Trump *did not* enter the race as a favour to Hillary.

Sure he did. They've been friends for decades, he's given her shitloads of money, and notice how quickly he reneged on his campaign promise to see her prosecuted?

He ran as a stunt, and was shocked at how much traction he got (with all of Hillary's media minions giving him the lion's share of the news coverage), so the ego took over and he went for it.
