Hints of What Kind of Country US Is Fast Becoming

This from Zero Hedge on June 8:
Obama Claims TARP Issue Is Out Of Supreme Court's Authority, which is based on this post from SCOTUS Blog (Supreme Court of the United States Blog):

U.S. says TARP issue out of Court’s reach (6/8/09, SCOTUS Blog):

"The Obama Administration argued Monday that no court, including the Supreme Court, has the authority to hear a challenge by Indiana benefit plans to the role the U.S. Treasury played in the Chrysler rescue, including the use of “bailout” (TARP) funds. The Indiana debt holders, U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan wrote, simply have no right to raise that issue, thus putting it out of the reach of the courts."

Emphasis is mine. The administration is saying we have no right to question the government in Chrysler bailout, and no court has authority to hear us.

This from Washington's blog on May 20:
Obama is considering doing something that even Bush didn't try: Preventive detention of people who will never get a trial:

Quoting New York Times article on May 20,

"President Obama told human rights advocates at the White House on Wednesday that he was mulling the need for a “preventive detention” system that would establish a legal basis for the United States to incarcerate terrorism suspects who are deemed a threat to national security but cannot be tried.."

"The other participant said Mr. Obama did not seem to be thinking about preventive detention for terrorism suspects now held at Guantánamo Bay, but rather for those captured in the future, in settings other than a legitimate battlefield like Afghanistan."

Do you see a pattern here?

Didn't the President teach constitutional law, or at least say he did? (Which country's constitution was he teaching?)

Do you want to run as fast as you can, as far away as you can, while you can?
