Republicans often complain about “activist” federal courts when they rule according to the United States Constitution or established legal precedent, yet they celebrate every fault their activist judges rule in the nation’s highest court as law of the nation. country. Regardless of whether the public approves or criticizes the corrupt magistrates of this court, it is time to control these religious fanatics and corporate lackeys to restore some objectivity in the Supreme Court.
Judges, and courts in general, are supposed to be objective in their conclusions based on evidence, Constitution and consolidated jurisprudence. Judges at all levels are also held to high ethical standards, mainly because there are mechanisms to regulate them and keep them objective and honest.
However, the highest court in the nation and its judges are not bound by any ethical standards because they do not exist; and they get away with unethical behavior for life. Unfortunately for many Americans, that lack of any kind of ethical standard required to serve on the highest court in the nation has produced a corrupt activist Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court needs a major overhaul and it means more than just adding justices. That review should include ditching the absurdity of appointment for life, increasing the number of judges, and establishing an ethical review structure similar to that of any other court in the country. Conservatives in Superior Court have shown time and again that they do not award anything according to the Constitution and most of the time they render judgments in accordance with their religious beliefs, as well as their conservative tendency to demonstrate their loyalty to corporate Republicans who they placed them. in the court.
The recent decision regarding the abortion ban in Texas after six weeks was a prime example of judges making a decision based on their religious beliefs without hearing any arguments defending the gruesome law or protesting its implementation. There is absolutely no good or social benefit for the nation to dictate to women when they produce offspring and, in fact, forcing them to do so violates the 14th.th Guarantee of the amendment of equal treatment before the law.
the The movement to erase women’s right to choose is driven by religion, specifically the Catholic religion. The so-called “pro-life” religious right simply adopted a Papal Encyclical of 1968 as conservative cause celebrated to incite the faithful to elect Republicans. That is not a guess or an opinion, it is historical fact.
But that is not the end of the corruption. It is true that no judge in the nation would publicly request a specific case to adjudicate and disseminate the verdict before knowing the facts. That judge would be brought before an ethics committee and summarily removed. Similarly, no judge would meet privately with plaintiffs or defendants before hearing a case before them to influence how to judge an upcoming case. That judge would face an ethics panel and possible impeachment, unless they are conservative Supreme Court justices.
It is not unusual for Superior Court justices to attend “seminars,” but it is highly unusual for two justices to attend one. Koch Industries Secret Conservative Seminary just before hearing the Citizens United case. Few people are unaware of how Scalia and Thomas voted on that horrible case that promoted Koch’s right-wing agenda. But that wasn’t the end of Thomas’s corruption.
Thomas was back at it in 2010 when he appeared in a Federalist Society “Fundraiser” as featured speaker with two other Supreme Court justices, Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito, who were guests of honor. Thomas’s attendance as featured speaker violated Canon 4C of the US Code of Conduct for Judges Who “forbidden to be a speaker, guest of honor, or featured on the show“From a fundraising event.
Clarence Thomas has recently been calling on various anti-women’s election groups and / or Republican states to bring a case to the Supreme Court to challenge Roe v Wade. “he can reverse it. “And, as a Catholic, he also despises women who use contraception and has made no secret that his dream is criminalizing “Unnatural” birth control according to the 1968 papal encyclical mentioned above.
In fact, he’s joined by self-proclaimed “Maid” Amy Coney Barrett in never hiding her. anti-woman choice position because “is the position of the Catholic Church. And it is noteworthy that he has made it very clear that every decision in his life is driven by his religious beliefs.
All of these cited cases may not qualify as “corruption” in a legal sense when there is no Judicial “code of conduct” that applies to Supreme Court justices to ensure objectivity. However, any judge who broadcasts his predetermined position in a case before them, or who asks some group to present a case so that they can overturn what is considered “precedent” or established law, is corrupt. The current Supreme Court is replete, not just with fanatical religious fanatics, but with corrupt conservatives who are not in the least interested in ruling according to the Constitution or the will of the people.
And just a note to all well-meaning Americans who think that standing outside the Supreme Court to protest against corrupt judges who have already ruled on cases before hearing any arguments, is wasting your time. Religious fanatics and libertarian-friendly judges simply don’t care what most Americans want or how damaging their default rulings will be to millions of people. They only care about serving the whims of the rich, groups that hate women and the Catholic Church. If that were not the case, this court would never hear an anti-abortion case; because banning abortion has no other purpose than to control women and show loyalty to the Vatican.
The United States desperately needs legislation that provides some objectivity to the Supreme Court justices who, in simple terms, are a law unto themselves that are accountable to no one or any part of the government. That simply cannot be sustained in a secular democracy, which is why the United States is reeling toward becoming “Gilead.” And like anyone who has read “The Handmaid’s Tale“Or seen the television series of the same name can attest, This secular democracy called America is about to follow the example of the Islamic Republic of Iran or Afghanistan controlled by the Taliban.
