The Supreme Court today, in a one sentence message, denied the writ of certiorari filed by Attys. Mike Ferris and Herb Titus on behalf of Army Specialist Michael New.
This writ was a request that the higher court order the Federal Court of Appeals to hear the case. The Court of Appeals had denied Michael New a hearing on the merits of the case last November, arguing that they have no jurisdiction.
The next step is the Army Court of Criminal Appeals, meeting in Falls Church, Virginia on 28 May. The Army has already filed its brief, in which they will tell the judges that this case is "non-justiciable," in the military courts. (Which means that THEY have no jurisdiction!) This hearing open to the public however, seating is very limited.
If the ACCA agrees with the Pentagon, and they are expected to do so, then we will be witness to an American citizen-soldier who has been ex-patriated, stripped of his legal protection by both civilian and military courts, forced out from under the umbrella of the legal protections provided in the Constitution.
This government is moving perilously close to the position of declaring, in effect, that the Constitution does not apply because it has been rendered irrelevant by treaties, by an activist judiciary, and by a spineless Congress more interested in re-election than in doing what they took an oath to do.
Can a government FORCE a citizen, to whom it guarantees "freedom of religion," to serve in a foreign military capacity under an anti-Christian, un-elected, anti-American United Nations military? Can a Christian, or anyone for that matter, be legally required to serve two masters? The implications are staggering.
Yes, you have suspected it all along. The awkwardness of their position is that none of them want to admit it, because it can radically change the way Americans view this "New, Improved State."
Where does a citizen appeal, when stripped of legal protection by both military and civilian courts? Under what courts can SPC Michael New find justice? The Hague? We don't think so! Well, there is still Congress, there is still the Court of Public Opinion, and there is still a merciful and just Judge of the Universe, in Whom we believe, in Whom the Founders believed, but in Whom the current rulers do not believe. We are confident in that position. Faith and Obedience to God is the most dangerous thing in the world to Tyrants.
