The Supreme Court has struck down a disputed law that would have allowed Americans born in Jerusalem to list their birthplace as Israel on their U.S. passports.
Growing tyranny. As usual, when the United States Supreme Court issues a decision, I recommend that you read the actual court decision, rather than the media spin.
Today, in ZIVOTOFSKY v. KERRY, SECRETARY OF STATE, a divided Supreme Court held that despite other similar laws (i.e. Taiwan) and despite no clearly applicable legal precedent or grant of presidential power by the U.S. Constitution, a federal law duly passed by the U.S. Congress and signed by the U.S. President can be ignored by all future presidents – in a new grant of exclusive Presidential Authority. Justice Scalia’s decent describes the ruling as “…a leap worthy of the Mad Hatter.”
