    We'll it could be that most are dead now, and the new generations could care less. It is why the master piece is vulnerable to these types of characters these days. If it isn't being empowered in the schools from 4th grade up, then each generation gets a little more lost, and a lot more sheeple they become in their ways.

    Yep. It's why we always hear those modern populist words "Our Democracy'' instead of the truth of the matter -- ''Our Republic"

    A number of Americans understand the Constitution besides the judges. Who teaches the judges, who teaches law school students, who teaches college students of the Constitution, who teaches high school students the Constitution?

    We have a Second Amendment, why do we have security problems in our free States.

    " More Left Wing Quackery "

    * Necessary Acts Without Knowing The Future *
    An interesting digress in constitutional law on this topic has been informative and interesting , but to allege that the President and Congress at the time of wwii were , or should be , " guilty " is legally false and libel .

    To second guess a military strategy that implemented imminent domain to secure an area of operations on the us pacific coast was more realistic than the contemporary reverse racist racist propaganda to vilify the history of us peoples and its administrators as contemptuous and morally bereft .

    Should one surmise a further contempt of armchair absurdity that us should have sacrificed an estimated 500,000 fighting men above and beyond the nearly 400,000 who were to die altogether , to invade japan and force a capitulation of its emperor , rather than issuing the Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki - Wikipedia .

    Alternatively , us could have ignored a persistent of japanese imperialism , except that it came to pass that they provoked a declaration of war through a clear infraction against us military and that was something germany was not so gawd awful stupid to do .

    * Complaining About The Opportunity To Participate *

    The relocated japanese were not deprived of first amendment for a redress of grievances and it certainly make strategic sense to blanket remove potential spies or conspirators and even to intern them for their own protection .

    First Amendment to the United States Constitution - Wikipedia
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.[1]

    Internment of Japanese Americans - Wikipedia
    On August 10, 1988, U.S. President Ronald Reagan signed the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, which had been sponsored by Representative Norman Mineta and Senator Alan K. Simpson, who had met while Mineta was interned at Heart Mountain Relocation Center in Wyoming. It provided financial redress of $20,000 for each surviving detainee, totaling $1.2 billion. The question of to whom reparations should be given, how much, and even whether monetary reparations were appropriate were subjects of sometimes contentious debate within the Japanese American community and Congress.[205]

    On September 27, 1992, the Civil Liberties Act Amendments of 1992, appropriating an additional $400 million to ensure all remaining internees received their $20,000 redress payments, was signed into law by President George H. W. Bush. He issued another formal apology from the U.S. government on December 7, 1991, on the 50th Anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, saying:

    * No Evidence Needed *
    The german conflict with other european countries was perceived to be isolated to europe and to those territories sought by germans for germany .

    At the time , us posture in WWII was formally neutral and it was japan which attacked the us directly , and not germany which had more sense than to provoke the us directly into the war .

    Yet , armchair propagandists with 10/10 revisionism , exercise skewed perceptions to character assassinate those responsible for the gravity of potential future outcomes .

    Military history of the United States during World War II - Wikipedia
    Highest priority went to the defeat of Germany in Europe, but first the war against Japan in the Pacific was more urgent after the sinking of the main battleship fleet at Pearl Harbor.

    The military history of the United States in World War II covers the war against Germany, Italy, Japan and starting with the 7 December 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. During the first two years of World War II, the United States had maintained formal neutrality as made officially in the Quarantine Speech delivered by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937, while supplying Britain, the Soviet Union, and China with war materiel through the Lend-Lease Act which was signed into law on 11 March 1941, as well as deploying the U.S. military to replace the British invasion forces in Iceland. In the Pacific Theater, there was unofficial early U.S. combat activity such as the Flying Tigers.

    Executive Order 9066 - Wikipedia
    Executive Order 9066 was a United States presidential executive order signed and issued during World War II by United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942. This order authorized the Secretary of War to prescribe certain areas as military zones, clearing the way for the incarceration of Japanese Americans, German Americans, and Italian Americans in U.S. concentration camps.

    Internment of Japanese Americans - Wikipedia
    The internment of Japanese Americans in the United States during World War II was the forced relocation and incarceration in concentration camps in the western interior of the country of between 110,000 and 120,000[5] people of Japanese ancestry, most of whom lived on the Pacific coast. Sixty-two percent of the internees were United States citizens.[6][7] These actions were ordered by President Franklin D. Roosevelt shortly after Imperial Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor.[8]

    Post 59 showed that the Roosevelt Administration realized they had no credible basis to continue the internment camps just before the Supreme Court Decision was posted in public.

    Their actions showed they KNEW they were wrong as the quickly changed their minds BEFORE the 9-0 SCOTUS decision was made public, along with several reports showing there were no evidence that the Japanese Americans were a risk to America.:

    Your statement here is dumb as hell:

    "an interesting digress in constitutional law on this topic has been informative and interesting , but to allege that the President and Congress at the time of wwii were , or should be , " guilty " is legally false and libel ."

    Ooops.

    All this talk about the Federalist Papers omits one thing - they were simply opinion pieces by those who felt the federal government had some form of supremacy.

    The most important point is that SCOTUS is controlled by Congress as approved by the Chief Executive. If either or both do not like the way the court is going, they can act to make changes.

    The error of 1099 is probably the US had checked and tagged suspicious Germans and Italians and they were picked up and interred, that had not been done with the Japanese-Americans and the Japanese.
