Well if you can't do the job properly you can always resign, dontcha know?

 Yeah I wonder why anyone would view SCOTUS as partisan with all of these Federalist Society justices?

Imagine if a large % of SCOTUS justices were giving speeches at Occupy Democrats or Black Lives Matter rallies?

What a better world it would be.
 
2021-09-13 4:16:29 AM  
I can't imagine why people would think that. Just because a President without a majority of support pushed through three justices confirmed by senators representing a minority of the country.
 
2021-09-13 4:19:47 AM  
Hmmmnnnn well given that you can predict pretty accurately what a large percentage of the Court will decide on any given issue based on their political stance and who nominated them, I'd say there's probably some political bias on the court. Particularly given how much the court interfaces with specific political issues, for example things like redistricting, are the citizens united decision which basically said that the lawmakers of the United States are not allowed to control how people donate money to political parties in a meaningful way

And when I say some political bias on the court, I mean near complete and total political bias.

It's gods damned crazy

Why don't you get a few years of actual experience before you start speaking for the institution, lady -- maybe stop using the shadow docket for anything controversial and folks might stop trashing you.

Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett expressed concerns Sunday that the public may increasingly see the court as a partisan institution.

Did I wake up in the 80's and someone forget to tell me?

University of Louisville's McConnell Center - I take it this uni is a pay to play one, that is not much respected?

"Barrett said the media's reporting of opinions doesn't capture the deliberative process in reaching those decisions..."

... you mean about the Shadow Docket? Yeah... that keeps us from seeing any deliberation.

Hyper vigilant is a poor choice of words.

I wish I could sleep.

Justices must be "hyper vigilant to make sure they're not letting personal biases creep into their decisions, since judges are people, too," Barrett said at a lecture hosted by the University of Louisville's McConnell Center.

This is an amazing sentence.

Fasces Breaker: "Barrett said the media's reporting of opinions doesn't capture the deliberative process in reaching those decisions..."

Well, the reason for that is there isn't any.  They can use the shadow docket to just make a decision without actually having to do their jobs, so long as the case fits their already made decision.

Someone who posted a few weeks ago wasn't wrong when they said that the SCOTUS has become a Star Chamber.

It really is, that's what struck me too.  It's not just the glaring obliviousness of someone who was elevated (supposedly) on her intellectual and judicial merits, it's that this speech was for MCCONNELL... partisanship in raw form.   We really are headed for revolution if this continues, Trump infected and destroyed everything he touched, including the Supreme Court, and eventually people will get sick of the wealthy and powerful and burn it all down.  Happens all the time, but those fools think they are somehow immune to the will of the people as long as they keep going on the news and spinning, eventually that smoke screen is going to clear...

Try being a single dad. I just chuckle at all the "shout out to all the single moms" comments on social media.

At least they kinda know what the hell they're doing. We're over here winging it most of the time.

She wants to SCOTUS to appear unbiased, so she speaks at an institute founded by, and after being introduced by, the Republican minority leader who made the McConnell rule, and then broke the McConnell rule, in order to cement right wing control of SCOTUS.

Right...
 
2021-09-13 7:41:19 AM  
Two facts.

Respect is earned.

The system where a scant few people, who I will never meet and can be appointed for life by people dumber than myself, can control the lives and freedoms of millions of people is beyond stupid.
 
2021-09-13 7:42:29 AM  
Barrett was asked about that decision by students who submitted questions in advance and also asked about another recent decision by the court in which it refused to block a lower court ruling ordering the Biden administration to reinstate a Trump-era program informally known as Remain in Mexico. Barrett said it would be "inappropriate" to comment on specific cases.

Oh for fark's sake. You guys issue farking  OPINIONS on "specific cases". Lady, do you even know how to Justice?

Well, we know where this is going. You're going to see a disinformation campaign from SCOTUS for the next six months until the justices get their talons on abortion.

As a daily reminder, Justice Thomas and his wife Ginny organized and funded the January 6th insurrection that led to the murder of five police officers.
Justice Kavanaugh received a $200,000 gift from an unknown source right before his confirmation hearing to pay off his credit card debt, and the FBI recently admitted they didn't perform the background check they said they did.
/It's not a legitimate court until Justice Thomas and Kavanaugh resign.
//Also, we've come too far to go back now.  In the original constitution, all states passed voting restrictions so only the top 5% of people could vote, based on gender, race, and religious discrimination, as well as chattel slavery and denial of citizenship.  That's un-american and against the will of the people so they can Fark right off.

What a shame theres no way for her to resign and she just has to keep participating in this unjust SCOTUS assignment that was thrust upon her against her will.

Well at least she didn't deliver her remarks at Louisville's Louis Brandeis School of Law.  That would have invited too many comparisons.

She's a piece of work.

Behaves as if she truly believes that she's the equal of a Commander rather than a useful idiot.

Serena Joy made the same mistake.

And found out.

May Amy Coney Waterford likewise be so abundantly and entirely blessed.

Under His eye.

And I would add the religious bias, overwhelmingly Catholic.


Liberals nominate Jews, conservatives nominate Catholics, neither religion is very representative of America as a whole. They all get nominated because of entrenched money/power. They all went to ivy league schools because of their rich parents.

FTFA: "Introduced by Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, who founded the center and played a key role in pushing through her confirmation in the last days of the Trump administration, Barrett spoke at length about her desire for others to see the Supreme Court as nonpartisan.
Barrett said the media's reporting of opinions doesn't capture the deliberative process in reaching those decisions. And she insisted that "judicial philosophies are not the same as political parties."

You're right, the Democratic Party should have backed Sanders as the presidential candidate in 2016. They would have won the presidency and congressional seats due to the lack of voter apathy and Sanders' calls for action, instead of just Hillary's speeches that confined herself to be no better for America than being Obama 1.01. Glad you're finally seeing the light.

And the worst part? It's all over s***, that if they would respect the Establishment Clause, wouldn't even be an issue -- no liberal in America told her she can't go to church on Sunday -- no liberal ever told her she had to take birth control or abort a child -- no one told her she had to engage in LGBTQ relationships.

Just respect her fellow citizens.

But this is their jam -- it's not enough for them to believe it -- you have to, as well -- or at least comply laws that cater to their belief system, however unconstitutional

Just making an observation like everyone else. It's been obvious for a while, but I really can't project that thought in a Machine Gun Kelly vs. Conor McGregor hissy fit thread.
