This is the oath of a US military officer upon receiving commission:
I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
The Supreme Court was established in the Constitution.
The power of Judicial Review gas been in place since 1803.
The Supreme Court has the authority under Judicial Review to overrule the Executive, it’s part of our checks and balances.
The military is also obligated to obey laws passed by Congress and signed by the President, or passed by veto-proof majority.
A military officer is obligated by the Constitution to obey rulings by the Supreme Court and any Supreme Court decision that affects the Executive.
The DOD does not have the authority to dismiss a Supreme Court ruling or lawfully passed legislation as say “fuck you, we’ll do what we want.”
It could be any decision.
The DOD could, at this point, decide to violate Ex parte Milligan and start trying civilians for whatever they wanted.
This is how a junta behaves.
If the DOD is not slapped back into place, there is no check on them now.
Of course the Biden Administration won’t do that.
The next Republican administration needs to find everyone who was part of this decision and send them to Leavenworth for life.
