The Truth About Republican Justices

Now that it is all but inevitable that the country is going to be saddled with one more Republican Supreme Court Justice, rammed through by systematic hiding of his record and beliefs, I want to make perfectly clear a point that I have heard nobody make in a straightforward way.

Rehnquist, Thomas, Scalia, Alito, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh...these are not Conservative Justices, they are not right wing Justices.  They are corrupt justices.  Their only intent is to aid the half century long Republican plan to turn the country into an oligarchic dictatorship with a few hundred rich families, and with three hundred million citizens living in poverty, without the slightest chance to affect the government's behavior.

Bush v. Gore, Citizens United, District of Columbia v. Heller, and a thousand other decisions, made not on the basis of the Constitution, but on the basis of what serves the interests of those few hundred families; criminal decisions made by criminal Justices.  And even though these decisions run counter to the will of the great majority of the people, they are made anyway, by a court stripped of honest Justices and packed with criminals.

And with Kavanaugh, a man who has made it clear that he is fine with enabling dictatorial powers for a President and crushing out of existence any public knowledge of his criminality, we will be stuck with this abomination for decades. 

I repeat: these Justices have no ideology, no beliefs, and no respect for the history and well-being of this country.  They are corrupt criminals who are being elevated to hollow out the United States and leave it nothing but a third world dictatorship.  And as this is just fine with a party which is perfectly willing to seize and maintain power through any kind of force and subterfuge, it looks like that is what we are going to get.

It is very clear that Supreme Court decisions that have been beneficial for the people and have moved the country forward have come from the liberal justices. The conservative justices have moved the country backwards and benefited the few and powerful. And now with Kavanaugh, the conservatives are trying to destroy democracy.

Obviously, I agree with you one hundred percent.

And even without Kavanaugh the Right is well on it's way to their goal.

Seeing clips of these Republicans statements concerning Obama's pick of Garland and now borders is truly disgusting and much much more.

I am from Iowa and looking at this bastard Grassly with the gavel and the look in his eyes is one of pure evil! He's old as hell and his eyes looked lizard like they really did.

The whole damn state is full of Grassly's. I will never return.

Good point.

They say they just call balls and strikes. Amazing how their calls always go the GOP's way.

Dishonest umpires.
