RUSH: Here is Pete in Norwalk, Connecticut. Pete, you’re next on Open Line Friday. Hi.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. How you doing?
RUSH: Just fine, sir. Thank you.
CALLER: It’s an honor to speak to you, and thank you and thank God for your presence. I don’t know where we’d be without you.
RUSH: I appreciate that, sir. Thank you very much.
CALLER: Rush, if I may, I just have two points. The second one will be quick, the first one a little longer. The Supreme Court decision with Gitmo and habeas corpus, I’m outraged beyond anything I can think of. For them to confer our constitutional rights that we have fought for and died for on those barbarians is just beyond the pale. And these people could not possibly, these five liberal elitists, five lawyers cannot possibly have shown a greater disdain for the Constitution and still say they love America. It’s impossible. You can’t. Liberals always bristle when we say you don’t love America. Guess what? Actions speak louder than words. And thanks to this disgraceful decision now, lawyers are going to be more involved with what we do with POWs than the military. How insane is that? And soldiers are going to Mirandize these guys? Rush, the physical dangers to America’s —
RUSH: Well, wait a minute, we don’t know we’re going to get there. That’s an extreme place this could end up —
CALLER: Fair enough.
RUSH: It’s possible, it’s possible —
CALLER: Absolutely it’s possible. But fair enough. But it just shows how outrageous, how outrageous this entire decision is. Once again, activist judges have totally disregarded the will of the vast majority of people and —
RUSH: Wait there’s more to this than that. If you look at Kennedy’s opinion, Justice Kennedy’s opinion —
CALLER: Yes, I did.
RUSH: — he basically says that the integrity of the Constitution is more important than any little upheaval in American life that might come along, that’s when it’s most important. And Kennedy is not a liberal activist judge, I don’t think. I’ve known him, haven’t seen him in a while, but he was in Sacramento when I was, law school out there, when he was appointed. But with the liberal activists, they have succeeded here in doing what they have been trying to do ever since the Iraq war started, and that’s take the prosecution of the war out of the hands of the commander-in-chief and put it in the hands of judges, in this case the Jihad Five.
CALLER: That’s exactly right.
RUSH: But it’s purposeful, it’s not a mistake, it’s not a mistake, it is a purposeful upheaval of the United States Constitution, and the only remedy for this, there’s only one remedy, a president who is going to appoint different kinds of people to the Supreme Court, that’s it, that’s the only remedy. Lindsey Grahamnesty’s even mad about this, because he was involved in writing the congressional law that the Supreme Court demanded before this decision and they still said it’s like unconstitutional so he said that they’re going back to the drawing board.
CALLER: Yeah, they didn’t even give that an opportunity to play out. They just threw it out and decided it wasn’t gonna work. If the president just refused to do this, doesn’t he have that recourse, to just bring this to a constitutional issue, a constitutional crisis? Our entire history we’ve always said the execution of wars is the commander-in-chief in the legislative and the judicials stay home, and they decided not to do that, and I don’t understand why the president would not say, ‘You know what? I’m not going to do this, I’m just not going to do this, this is not right for this country, it’s not right for our security, I’m not gonna do it.’
RUSH: It’s not who he is.
CALLER: I know. I know. Rush, you know you’re rushed for time, if I could make one more quick point. That Obama site, I went up and I looked, and of course you’re blamed for everything, you know, you did global warming and you’ve done everything that’s wrong with the entire world, all conservatives are, and I know you can’t say this, but wouldn’t it be just a shame if your entire listening audience at three p.m. Eastern today decided to go up and take a look that Obama site? I’m sure it could handle that kind of bandwidth, don’t you think Rush? I don’t think it would be a problem all.
RUSH: You want to shut down their server?
CALLER: You know, why don’t we let them know that we’re out here, too. They may own every television, but, by God, there are some of us out here that understand the truth and are really tired of this. And when is America going to wake up? When are we going to start railing? When are we going to start getting the muskets? When are we going to start doing all the things that made this country great? When is it going to happen? What do we need to lose, another city? It’s insane what these people are doing to our country, it’s just absolutely insane.
RUSH: Well, I think that the statement that you’ve just made is pretty comprehensive. As far as recommending a massive attack on the Obama website to shut it down, that won’t last long, and they’ll be back up and running and then they’ll start attacking us for attacking their little website and so forth.
CALLER: Well, I know that —
RUSH: It won’t shut it down. We don’t want to shut it down. We want more and more people to see the absolute BS and lies that make up that website.
CALLER: Well, your point is well taken. There’s no question about it. But, Rush, I’m going to let you go. I know how much time you need, other people, but thank you again. Keep up the battle; keep up the good fight; we’re going to win this eventually.
RUSH: Thanks, Pete. That’s Pete from Norwalk, Connecticut, who wants to go out and grab the muskets and the pitchforks and wonders why nobody else is eager to join him out there on the front line. Pete, you’re not alone, just trust me in your frustration level at least.
