    Evidently, there is no requirement that editorial writers cannot be brain dead. As evidence, I submit this WND piece on why we need a constitutional amendment for homeschooling rights.

    Thus, Farris’ concern is quite justified. The liberal judges on the U.S. Supreme Court are relying more and more on international law for guidance in their judgments. In the Hamdan v. Rumsfeld case, the Court upheld the Geneva Conventions of 1949 as enforceable U.S. law.

    IANAL but I’m pretty sure that the reason the Geneva Conventions are enforceable U.S. law is that we are a signatory. And, IIRC, under the same U.S. Constitution that Farris is continually seeking to amend, international treaties are the supreme law of the land.

    “This Constitution, and the law of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be Supreme Law of the land; and the Judges in every state shall be bound thereby, any thing in the Constitution or Laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.”

    Now I’m just a lowly blogger, but I’d be embarrassed to put out something so lame with my name attached. But Blumenfeld regularly writes for WND, so he may be beyond embarrassment.
