The new Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson has been grilled by the Senate Judiciary Committee and mainly by Republicans, and here are some of my comments on that. And if readers don’t like my making fun of ignorant senators, sorry about that.
First of all, the “Supreme” Court shouldn’t even exist and issues and conflicts should be resolved at the state level, at the very least.
The sheeple are pathetically dependent on this group of 9 bureaucrats to decide their fate, which is ridiculous. The 9 robed fascists rubber-stamp the police state, the war on drugs, the national security state, the CIA, FBI, NSA, and all the evil institutions of government. They are no good.
We have something called the 10th Amendment, which protects the right of the people to ignore “Supreme” Court decisions, in my view.
So anyway, I’m going to write this based on my memory of what I heard on the radio that several “news” outlets and talk show personalities have repeated several times. I didn’t exactly take notes.
To begin, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (a.k.a. “Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!”) asked Judge Jackson to define “woman,” to which Jackson replied that she couldn’t define “woman” because she’s “not a biologist.”
Oh, Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!
What a stupid question. I’m assuming Sen. Blackburn is referring to the LGBT stuff. Perhaps she should ask if the judge thinks there are more than two genders. You either do or you don’t, Judge.
Maybe Sen. Blackburn is referring to the transgenderism craze going on these days. Recently a male college competitive swimmer who was not very good in competing against other males decided to “identify” as a female and allowed by idiots to compete along with females and against females, so he can cheat and win the competitions (and possibly receive financial rewards).
Perhaps Sen. Blackburn should have asked the judge if she thinks that male athletes should be allowed to compete in women’s teams?
Sen. Ted Cruz grilled and roasted Judge Jackson on cases in which she gave convicted child porn viewers overly light sentences. A little too zealous in his questioning, Sen. Cruz (R-McDonald’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, etc.) sounded like a Perry Mason wannabe, and even went over his allotted time while the chairman was yelling at him and cutting him off.
Sen. Jock Hawkey quoted Judge Jackson’s expressing sympathy toward the convicted child porn perv in court, but I didn’t hear her being quoted as having expressed sympathy toward child victims of molestation and abuse. Did she do that?
And by the way, regarding that bill in Florida that Gov. Ron DeSantis will sign into law banning the discussion of sexual issues in schools in kindergarten through 3rd grade, it’s not a “Don’t Say Gay” bill. All it says is that discussions of sexual matters are NOT APPROPRIATE for little kids up to age 8.
I know, there are a lot of “liberal” people who are brainwashed to believe that such matters are appropriate to discuss with little kids, but NO, they are NOT, you morons.
What is it with the people on the left pushing sexuality onto little kids? See the American Dream Blog with this article from a few years ago: 21 Signs That U.S. Public Schools Have Become Training Centers for Sexual Deviancy.
Our society has been allowing the sexualization of childhood which messes up the kids emotionally. See my post on the cult of the State and the sexualization of everything.
Hmm, I wonder if Senators Ted Scruz, Jock Howley, or Marsha, Marsha, Marsha have ever gone after the CPS child sex trafficking racket, or are they too aware of what happened to Nancy Schaefer?
Or how about going after their beloved FBI or CIA goons looking at child porn? See: The Federalist on CIA employees sexually molesting very young children but not prosecuting them, and the Boston Globe reporting on the hundreds of federal and military employees viewing child porn in which “only a handful resulted in prosecutions.”
Speaking of the child porn cases, many people including these senators and conservative talk radio personalities can’t seem to distinguish between people possessing child porn, in print or on a computer, versus actual child abusers.
So, it’s really the people who are actually exploiting the children to make the images who are the criminals. I think that anyone who actually harms a child or acts invasively against any child is a real criminal and should be thrown in jail, possibly for life.
I searched the Internet and wasn’t able to determine if Judge Jackson sentenced any people who actually, directly abused a child. So I have a feeling that Senators Ted Scruz, Jock Hawkey, and Tom Polyester concentrated on “child porn” cases to appeal to their “Moral Majority” base. Has Jackson given light sentences to actual child abusers?
Now, on the senators’ questioning of Jackson in her work as a public defender, Sen. Limpy Graham was frothing over her defending Gitmo detainees. Sen. Graham (R-Warmonger) displayed his ignorance of the rights of the accused. He believes apparently that the accused have no rights. He believes that a “war” changes things and if there’s a “war,” we all lose our right to due process. He also reiterated his support of indefinite detention. (See my article on the senators who love the government but hate America on this “War on Terrorism” thing and due process.)
But Graham like many others just doesn’t seem to understand that everyone has a right to due process, the right of the accused to require that the accuser present evidence against the accused, and that there be an actual public trial which provides the accused the opportunity to present his own evidence and witness testimony or to refute the prosecutors’ case.
That is because anyone can accuse anyone else of anything. Doesn’t Graham see that?
Has the indefinite detention and solitary confinement of January 6th “suspects” without evidence or charges not convinced Graham otherwise? Apparently not. Sadly, he’s still a fascist through and through.
“But those are just Trump supporters, conservatives, MAGA hat wearers and deplorables. In contrast, the Gitmo detainees are TERRORISTS! That’s different!”
Well, no, actually they are not “terrorists,” because they are accused terrorists. Just as the January 6th detainees are accused … “insurrectionists,” or whatever it is the Democrat-FBI goons are making up about them.
As I wrote here,
According to these numbers, the number of Gitmo prisoners since 2002 is 779, the number of those released is 670. They were released because there was no evidence against them, because they were innocent. But here are some more interesting numbers: The percentage of Gitmo prisoners captured by U.S. troops: 5%, and the percentage of prisoners who were paid bounties by CIA and coalition forces: 86%. Our government paid Afghan villagers and others to hand people over to our military and CIA, without charges, without suspicion. No wonder most who were taken to Gitmo were innocent, weren’t involved in any terrorism or criminality. They were tortured by criminals at Gitmo for no good reason, however. But the neanderthals who are fed propaganda day after day by the government and its media lapdogs believe that the detainees at Gitmo are “terrorists.”
So as I said, everyone who is accused of something has a right to due process, regardless of the government propaganda against them.
But now conservatives et al. are learning that the hard way (but not Sen. Limpy Graham, apparently.) Trump supporters, conservatives, MAGA believers, flag-wavers, are being accused of “domestic terrorism,” for attending a Trump rally and wandering around the Capitol in a daze, or speaking up at a school committee meeting.
(See my post on the honest, well-meaning FBI. We should not be surprised that they are going after Trump supporters, conservatives, MAGA true believers, and parents speaking up at a school committee meeting.)
And Graham was triggered by Judge Jackson, while she was a Gitmo detainee defender, having apparently referred to George W. Bush and Donald Rumsfeld as “war criminals.” Although, she referred to the torture of her clients as being in the category of war crimes.
But the truth is, of course Bush is a war criminal. He started wars of aggression against Afghanistan and Iraq, neither of which were involved in 9/11 or had attacked or threatened Americans. Many propagandized and bamboozled sheeple believe otherwise, obviously.
The Nuremberg Tribunal after World War II determined that starting a war of aggression is in and of itself a war crime.
A lot of people in America believe the post-9/11 propaganda and fear-mongering, just as many people have believed the more recent Covid propaganda and fear-mongering. So, when those of us who value the truth about the crimes of our government actually do tell the truth about it, the propagandized sheeple don’t like that. But whatever.
And I wonder what any of the senators who are outraged at Judge Jackson’s defending accused terrorists might think of the U.S. soldiers who shot, dropped bombs on and murdered innocents over there in Iraq, or who went door to door to seize firearms from families in direct violation of their right to keep and bear arms. (“Why, they are heroes, of course they are!”)
Such senators probably wouldn’t like it if a foreign military invaded U.S. cities and towns and bombed homes and businesses, schools and churches and shot and murdered innocent Americans and stole their means of self-defense. (Oh wait, that’s right. American militarists and the State-worshiping sheeple are moral relativists who reject the Golden Rule, oh, well.)
I’m sure that Limpy Graham, Ted Scruz, Tom Polyester and Jock Howley would rather hear the government’s lies and propaganda about 9/11 than know the truth about it.
To conclude, as we saw most recently, the “Supreme” Court are useless. Even the liberals rubber-stamp the CIA-torture national security state and the domestic police state, while the “conservatives” rubber-stamp socialized medicine. They really, really suck.
We need to have a free society, and the “Supreme” Bureaucrats are not a part of that.
