Listen now (4 min) | The radical Supreme Court is giving the big business backers of the GOP exactly what they paid for
You are correct. Democrats have to start playing hard ball. Republicans have done that for years and look where they are. Take the gloves off and do everything possible to rein in this court and their biased decisions. Now - before their rampage of destruction continues.
What these supreme idiots fail to realize is that they have to live with the same climate as the rest of us. Their money and their bodyguards won’t help them this time. People who are that stupid do not belong on any court or in public office.
Wow. Guns, fetuses, big oil, ,corporate welfare, homophobia, bigotry, greed, ANTI CHILD, the values and priorities of the Supreme Court are really shining through.
It would be laughable if it weren't so tragic. 5 unelected citizens decide to force their reactionary lethal agenda on the whole country and, on some matters, the world! We need to change Scotus functioning rules asap.
Every day I dread hearing what this Supreme Court has done. In my view they are creating legislation which is not in their purview as stated in the Constitution. They (the 6 unconstitutional justices) seem hell bent on rendering Congress useless. Maybe they hope to form their own authoritarian (religious) government maybe allowing the trumpster to be their figurehead. The Democrats in the House of Representatives need to draw up articles of impeachment based on 1. Ignoring the clear, unambiguous Articles and Amendments in the Constitution. Impeachment or death are presently the only way to end the term of Supreme Court Justices, The only ones dying are the good ones, like Ruth Bader Ginsberg, so we can't wait for death, therefore Impeachment is the best means of rectifying the situation. on a personal note, while I have not agreed with Chief Justice Roberts, until the appointments of Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett, he didn't seem so bad. Thomas on the other hand has been a terrible Justice since day one. Alito has worsened since the 3 trump appointees. 2) Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett are also guilty of perjury under oath. 3) Actually, by ignoring or deliberately misreading the Constitution all six are committing perjury for they swore an oath to "uphold the Constitution" not to make their own preferences of what it should have said. Even if we cant get a guilty verdict in the Senate, Articles of impeachment have some clout.
This depresses the hell out of me...Supreme Court now showing its bought and paid for colors.
Truly frightening decisions are being made by this “Supreme” Court. I am aghast at today’s decision, equally as much as the overturning of Roe v. Wade and striking down New York’s strict rules for obtaining a license to carry a concealed handgun in public. They seem to think they can make all of the laws in this country! I am beyond angry - I am livid. 😠 🌻
For decades right wing extremists have been railing against what they deemed was an "activist" SCOTUS. They are now conspicuously silent...
Thanks, Robert! The Supreme Court's currently extreme politicization undermines its legitimacy. And its recent decisions are seriously threatening, not only to our democracy, but now even to the government's power to address climate change. This is truly frightening!
Biden needs to be much stronger, or I should say GET strong. DO SOMETHING, EVEN IF IT IS WRONG!!!!! TELL AMERICA ALL ABOUT SINEMA AND JOE MANCHIN. SHOW WHAT THOSE TWO ARE ABOUT!!! STACK THE SUPREME COURT!!! TRY, TRY, TRY, TRY! DAMN-IT, TRY.
The fate of the US rests in the hands of the Supreme Court.
America has been complacent for too long.
We need to insist on the impeachment of the conservative ideologues that lied to Congress during their confirmation hearings that have further chosen a political party over the Constitution.
Time is short. Immediate action is necessary.
Please, write to your Congressional Representative and to the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and insist on impeaching these unjust Justices.
We’re currently in a pivotal period in terms of our ability to mitigate catastrophic, future warming of our planet. This Supreme Court ruling might be the last straw.
1) What happened to the plan to have 15 Supreme Court judges? This needs a refocus.
2) Can Biden purge Judge appointments under Trump by removing the clearly unqualified judges from the Federal courts? In any other job, a review of qualifications would be healthy.
3) Can an executive order by Biden change the venue for the Supreme Court to a basement in a rundown Church in a poor neighborhood? This may give the judges a better context and perspective for their role in society. Yes, it is time to strong and brave.
4) Can Biden issue an executive order to lower the salary of the judges to minimum wage as a checkpoint to reflect their poor performance.
5) Perhaps Biden should not have improved security for these judges as they would not require improved security if their judgements represent our whole society?
As many feel, Democrats need to understand some right wing groups are at war with democracy and are working outside of civilized norms. We need to respond to ensure life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Fascism here we come
We all know Congress is in the pocket of and beholden to the corporate oligarchs. Citizens United made it even worse. Now, indirectly thru the Federalist Society, SCOTUS??!!
The Roe and prayer decisions have recast SCOTUS as the American Taliban. Now, they remove any teeth the EPA had to help slow damage to the climate?! What next? IRS can’t collect taxes? Dept. of Interior can’t manage National parks? CPSC can’t protect consumers?
What a mess. My flag will fly upside down this 4th of July.
Officially, insanity has taken over the SCOTUS and it all boils down to Republican presidents who put 5 insane/religious bigots on the court. If I say any more I may get a visit from the FBI...
