One more right wing Supreme Court Justice will be the final nail in the American coffin. I hope Mitch McConnell is proud of the fact that his act of denying President Obama the Merrick Garland nomination for the Supreme Court seat as well as his support for Trump’s nomination of Neil Gorsuch is going to bring total control of the Supreme Court to corporate America, thus leading to the undoing of this great nation.
This unmerciful biased court is going to undo not just the Great Society of President Johnson but probably the New Deal itself. Social Security is at risk. Medicare is at risk. Medicaid is at risk. Roe v Wade, child labor protection, environmental protection, public education, even our voting rights are at risk.
The right wing of the country, especially the 1% has taken control. The last time this happened was in the late 1800’s and was known as the era of the “Fuller Court”. That system produced not only the biggest stock market crash in history but also World War I as well as World War II.
So now of more recent history, Clarence Thomas’s wife Virginia worked on the Bush campaign of 2000 through the Heritage Foundation owned and operated by the Koch Brothers. The Heritage Foundation functions as the intellectual lobbing cult of the multi-billionaire Koch Brothers, a serious conflict of interest. Virginia Thomas assured us it was not a conflict of interest even though George H W Bush had nominated her husband to the Supreme Court. So forget who she sleeps with at night. If Supreme Court Justice Thomas can’t admit or see the corruption in that, he’s not fit to be a Supreme Court Justice.
I believe we should have impeachment proceedings on this matter and on how it has led to Citizens United through the friendly ties of some of the Justices to the Heritage Foundation. They are corrupt and have to go. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of George W Bush to take and win the Presidential election because they stopped the vote count in Florida. Al Gore had more votes and he should of been president. But he conceded.
12,000 black males were thrown off the voter roles because they were labeled felons. This was the beginning of the ongoing Republican scam to take minorities off voters roll nationwide leading to the scam of Kris Kobach’s campaign against voter fraud. The only fraud though has been has been on the side of the Republicans. I believe it was this campaign of Republican voter suppression that led directly to the economic crash of 2008 and even cost the lives of about 500,000 Iraqis due to the invasion of Iraq.
So don’t tell me fair elections aren’t important. Supreme Court Justices have been given the power of God and the consecutive ones act like devils. When our children are working in the salt mines instead of earning an education in public schools, the American public may wake up. But I doubt it. For we are sheep. We won’t believe our country would do these evil acts to us because we believe in our authorities. We are proud of our heritage. We have yet to understand that those in power are not like us and that will be our undoing: our pride in a oligarchy that no longer cares about us.
So keep your vigilance because it is the work of patriot to leave the fools of the crowd and come out from among them and have a mind of your own. So America, judge rightly. No longer believe the lies of the corrupt but help plan a future with your brethren in the progressive movement for a better tomorrow. I pray.
