Now what is the correct implementation of Extra Constitutional Powers?

The Supreme Court rejected on Monday a lawsuit by a Pakistani man against a former U.S. attorney general and the FBI director claiming abuse while he was imprisoned in New York after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

By a 5-4 vote, the U.S. high court overturned a ruling that Javaid Iqbal, who was held more than a year after the attacks, could sue former Attorney General John Ashcroft and FBI Director Robert Mueller.

The decision appeared to be narrow, limited to the facts of the case, although it could be cited as precedent in other lawsuits.
Writing for the Supreme Court's conservative majority, Justice Anthony Kennedy said Iqbal's lawsuit failed to plead sufficient facts to state a claim for purposeful, unlawful discrimination.

Kennedy also ruled there was insufficient evidence that Ashcroft and Mueller had deprived Iqbal of his clearly established constitutional rights.
The U.S. government paid $300,000 to settle with Iqbal's co-plaintiff and fellow detainee Ehab Elmaghraby, an Egyptian. (Editing by Will Dunham)

What if there are majikal powers?

So remember boys and nonPerkin, that while the Great Party Leaders are all in favor of sharing that they have various Extra Constitutional Powers that allow them to do various really cool things, especially in a time of transferring the Tax Liabilities unto the Unborn FutureNormal UBU, that the courts may still opt to convict the peons, and work hard on how best to protect members of the Special Extra Constitutional Powers Groupings.

Remember also, it would be class warfare if evil liberals advocated a class bases for opposing those in the Special Extra Constituttional Powers Group, but as a Group, acting under the Majikal Powers Act, they are not engaged in class warfare against the untermenschen who they throw under the bus...

Remember, the peasants are revolting by definition, so there is nothing wrong with throwing them under the bus, any bus, so as to prevent the peasants from catching up.... { it is an Extra Constitutional Power afforded to the select members of the cool kids crew }

{ ok, I had to put the whole Extra Constitutional Powers thing in play, as i am soooo looking forward to edxter v. alohamac in this dony brooke. }
