Jury Trials Are Still Bi-Partisan

The odious NDAA, signed by GWBush and injected with steroids by the current tyrant, has been modified to preserve the jury trial.

Thursday night, the Senate passed an amendment, authored by Senators Diane Feinstein (D-CA) and Mike Lee (R-UT), which altered the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to protect citizens from warrant-less arrest and preserve the right to jury trial. The amendment passed 67-29.

This is not the first slap at the "Unitary Executive" theory (and practice), and I expect that the (D) folks are going to deliver a few more in the next year or so.

Not because they disagree with the current tyrant on most issues.

It's because they prefer that they share in the tyranny.  That's called "comity."

However, Obozo doesn't like sharing--so you can look forward to another Big Batch of EO's.
