The Supreme Court is not a Court

Brett Kavanaugh's appointment to the Court and the shenanigans leading up to that appointment should clarify what many have thought for years--that the Court is not a judicial body but is actually a super legislature comprised of nine individuals who have extraordinary power over our lives and culture.

Elections do count and Hilary Clinton's loss, has extraordinary consequences that will cause Americans to suffer for many years.

Kavanaugh is a partisan as was indicated in his second appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee. The Democrats have good reason to fear what will happen when cases shaped to help Republicans go before the Court. There will be cases on gerrymandering, voter suppression, incarceration of minorities, etc. Democrats should understand that these cases will be decided in the Supreme "Legislature" to favor the Republicans controlling strategy.

Is it a coincidence that the five past Republican Justices are Catholic?  This includes Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, Roberts, Thomas, and Alito.  This is a perfect five person majority to weaken or destroy Roe v. Wade.

Moreover, Senator McConnell has been very successful in sheparding federal judges through the Senatorial Labyrinth. Trump has now appointed 136 members of the federal judiciary. This means that the federal courts will belong to big business for many years to come.

Thanks Hilary.

  • The Supreme Court is functioning like a politburo, where, for decades, it often comes down to one person in a black robe deciding law for 350 million Americans. The decisions of the Supreme Court should be able to be overridden by a super majority of both House and Senate votes.

    We know partisans are chosen for justices. Look at Ginsburg and her anti-Trump politicking before and after the 2016 election.

    The Catholic Problem... well, that reminds me of when JFK had to promise the Pope wouldn't have a desk in the Oval Office. I guess that kind of bigotry never goes away. In the end, Oswald, a Democrat and Communist sympathizer, took care of JFK and that particular Catholic Problem. Echoes of that same solution for Kavanaugh have been floating around social media in recent days. We've come a long way, baby.

    Roe V Wade will never go away, either, so the Democrat's unfounded fear on that is simply amazing. Abortion is here to stay, believe it. Breathe easy.
