Terri's Death Watch Begins
Unfortunately, such defiance does not have much in the way of consequences, nor is it straightforward or rapid to make those minimal consequences felt.
There is some hope remaining, but before I speak to that two important comments:
- More than ever, we have got to get the judiciary of the nation under some semblance of control. The utter defiance of Judge Greer in this case is overwhelming. Judge Greer must now be labeled openly and without exaggeration a murderer. He has been given every opportunity to stop this from happening with his integrity intact, to do this now, under these circumstances must be construed to mean that either he is in a state of revolt against the government or he has something to hide so grievous that contempt of Congress is of less consequence than what would happen in light of a full congressional investigation
- All of Washington is cowardly. Rather than face this issue they have evaded and done half measures. Peggy Noonan opines that the Republican majority risks that majority in their failure to act and make those acts stick.
It is indeed time to "go nuclear" on the judiciary or the public is going to nuclear on the government. Do not stop the phone calls to your Representatives and Senators and do not stop talking about this. Terri will not die right away. Hope remains.
The best hope terrestially at this point is the Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus Our best hope remains prayer. I know I am having a hard time getting off of my knees right now.
