A Dystopian U.S. Supreme Court
Dystopia—an imaged state or society that causes great harm, suffering and injustices more often by a totalitarian state. The United States is working toward that end goal. Our state legislatures, governors, and now the Supreme Court are creating a dystopian state right here at home. The leaked Alito draft to do away with Roe and allow the states to create their own individual dystopian government is at hand—a Handmaiden’s handiwork. A Handmaiden’s hand being one Phony Coney Toady Barrett, and Kegger Kavanaugh, along with Clarence da’Troll Thomas and Neil Ghouli Gorsuch.
The USSC has rarely in its history had a possible ruling, in the form of a draft, leaked out to the press. In this case, what it illustrates is that the court is stepping outside of its ivory tower that portrayed historical integrity by taking a nearly 50 year old law, which a great many, a likely plurality, and saying that at the whim of a majority court such a personal right, and in this case settled law can be throw out and lives forced into chaos. The court is up for sale, or up for bid by, for example, Canon Law zealots with millions and/or billions of dollars to buy elections that install candidates that will select judges that support their religious, political and personal agendas. What we have here, in this case, is a court making fundamental decisions based upon the pressures leveraged by Christian fundamentalists who have turned the country in their direction by electing their chosen “handmaidens” into state legislatures, and federal offices. The court will likely allow the states to make their own rules, such as hunting down and criminalizing women who leave the state to pursue a medically safe abortion. Women will become property of the state and targets for bounty hunting predators. These same legislators don’t really care about the men who impregnate these women seeking an abortion for any sort of reasons. Why don’t they pass laws forcing castration to any man who impregnates a woman without her permission or an unwillingness to give financial and emotional support to their child? For many in the Trump American Neo-Nazi Party raping their wives is acceptable behavior. And, bringing to term a rapist’s seed might one day become a famous person, is what we have heard from these crazy Congressional zealots. As Howard Stern has publicly said these unwanted children should be brought to the steps of the Supreme Court so the justices can care for them. The court is now surrounded by a high wire fence; so what could be done is to attach toy baby dolls to the fence to symbolize the handing off of these unwanted babies to the court justices.
Nearly half the states are turning dystopian. Governor “GaySantis” is in the forefront of this movement. His fear of Mickey Mouse or Pluto hitting on him gives him nightmares and cold sweats. He is a mini-me Hitler in training. His fear of elementary school books talking about gay parents, or segregation, or slavery, or prejudices among people, or what transgender means puts a stain around his shirt collar. Now he wants anyone with a gun to be allowed to carry it in Florida without it ever being registered. This is dystopia.
The heck with real concerns for Floridians, such as the toxicity of their drinking water, sea level risings along the most populated communities in the state; or, the next big wave of summer COVID during beach season, just to mention a few.
Thomas Zimmer of The Guardian wrote that conservatives of any sort don’t want a true democracy to exist in this country. This includes so-called moderate conservatives, such as Mitt Romney or even Adam Kinzinger. In spite of Duh’Fuhrer t-RUMP being too extreme for them, they still don’t believe in democracy. Zimmer reported that the United States is likely the oldest democracy in the world, but then he asked where are all these radicalized anti-democratic “Republicans”, and their zombie followers, coming from?
They have come out from their hovels and holes once their pied piper Donald t-RUMP came ‘uh tooting his horn. They have followed him into the realm of authoritarian dystopia. They have dropped their bags full of liberal democratic policies, such as a free public school education, racial equity, support for union wages, women’s rights to choose what happens to their own bodies, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, pensions, assistance to the poor, pluralism, assistance to suffering seniors, a push against voter suppression, passages of gun laws, the ability to vote easily without their district being gerrymandered away from them, the belief in a separation between church and state, and more.
These former “Republicans” have become members, willingly or unwillingly, of the Trump American Neo-Nazi Party (TANNP) no longer “support the necessary steps to strengthen our democracy.” Congresswoman Liz Cheney, who voted with Trump nearly 100 percent of the time, has decided to remind us that our democracy is fragile in the wake of Russia’s genocide in Ukraine and the real threat of Putin using tactical nuclear weapons to make his point. Hey Liz, your words come a bit too late after you spent four years kissing t-RUMP’s ring in order to protect your own fragile leadership position in the Congress, which was taken away from you because you voted to impeach your crime boss and continued to want answers following the insurrection. Did you learn what fragility actually means? Cheney spoke about defending our democracy. Too late girl!! You threw that pipe dream away when you decided to remain in the same Party as your crime boss.
Zimmer pointed out how Romney is full of bullshit, too! He spoke at a private fundraiser and said that “preserving liberal democracy is an extraordinary challenge, yet he helped block legislation in the Senate that would have introduced much-needed national standards for voting rights.” Speaking against the “Trumptopian” evolution is only rhetoric and has no teeth unless you actually vote to preserve our freedoms, liberties and all rights of Americans instead of subverting our democracy, especially from governors and state legislatures. These so-named RINO snowflakes (Republicans In Name Only) are members of the TANNP but stand in the back of the crowd so as to not get noticed. They keep their white pointy hoods in their backpacks so no one can see them. A white Christian nation still remains printed on the bottom of their business cards in invisible ink, in spite of what they say. Hold it up to a black light and there it is.
Some of these fakes are abandoning the democracy ship and retiring from public service because they have become out numbered by the crazies carrying the TANNP flag wherever they go. We also have to ask, who the hell is Lisa Murkowski anyway? Didn’t she once say after the first impeachment that Trump learned his lesson? As Zimmer pointed out that in spite of her and Romney’s rejection of the January 6 traitorous acts, they seem to show an “unwillingness to support the necessary measures to defend liberal democracy.”
The original question of where did the Trump followers come from is answered here by Zimmer. “Until recently, the established story of modern conservatism’s emergence insisted that those far-right forces had been marginalized, confined to the irrelevant fringe, by the gatekeepers of the “respectable” right. However, as the latest historical scholarship convincingly argues, rightwing extremism was never fully purged from mainstream conservatism. And after Obama was elected president, the idea that Republicans were selling out “real” America, that more drastic action was urgently needed, was spreading fast into the center of conservative politics. In this view, liberals were winning, destroying the country, and Republican appeasement was complicit.”
Zimmer wrote, in Michael Anton’s “Flight 93 essay” written in 2016, he “presented Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party as a fundamental threat to America, every bit as dangerous as the terrorists who hijacked four airplanes on 11 September 2001. Anton called on the right to embrace Trumpism because Trump would be willing to go much further to stop this “un-American” threat than any of the “ordinary” Republicans who were “merely reactive” and for whom Anton had nothing but contempt. Since Trump wasn’t bound by norms, traditions, or precedents, he alone could be counted on to do whatever was necessary to fight back against “wholesale cultural and political change” – to “charge the cockpit,” in Anton’s crude analogy, like the passengers of Flight 93 who thwarted an attack on the Capitol. As Anton put it, “Trump, alone among candidates for high office in this or in the last seven (at least) cycles, has stood up to say: I want to live. I want my party to live. I want my country to live. I want my people to live.”
Zimmer continued—“Democracy? Who cares about democracy when “real America” is under assault and about to be overrun by radical, “un-American” leftist forces? These are not simply the fever dreams of fringe reactionaries. People like Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Matt Gaetz symbolize the rise of far-right extremism within the Republican party, and the widespread siege mentality on the American right is the main reason why their radicalism is widely seen as justified by fellow Republicans.” They “want to uphold white Christian elite rule from within the confines of a narrowly restricted version of democracy – and those who want to pursue that goal by openly embracing authoritarianism and militant extremism.”
The New American Three Stooges Caucus Founders
He went on to say, “The days of white elite rule within a system of restricted democracy are probably over – America will either slide into authoritarianism or make the leap to multiracial, pluralistic democracy. Public critique of Trumpism matters less than the continued de facto support for an increasingly authoritarian Republican party. The fundamental reality of American politics is that, for now, the Democratic party is the country’s sole significant (small-d) democratic party. In that way, democracy itself has become a partisan issue. It’s a reality with which every lawmaker, every institution, every voter in America has to grapple honestly.”
There are the TANNP members who want to be seen as traditional Republicans, and then there are those fully embracing the actions required to be a Trump Nazi, and a member of the New Congressional Three Stooges Caucus. One such person is a founding member of this new caucus, Lauren Boebert, who might never have actually graduated from kindergarten. She decided to prove her lack of intelligence by opening her mouth in the form of a tweet. Please read the link because there are some incredibly crushing comments against this Colorado NITWIT.
She tweeted that those in the LGBTQ community were nothing but “groomers.” What brought this on was her watching a trailer for the upcoming Discovery+ reality series called Generation Drag. “Boebert wrote, “Siri, define grooming.” Then Siri gave her a link. “Boebert likely thought she was being clever by implying the trailer presents a definition of grooming, but all she proved is she’s the one who needs help defining the term. Commenters were more than happy to assist, with more than a few bringing up that time her husband was arrested for exposing himself to a minor in a bowling alley.” You cannot make this stuff up!!
Another dufus is Steve Dufus Doocy from Fox, who asked one of his stupid questions during a Jen Psaki briefing. She decided to dunk him into his own barrel of slime, which he carries with him wherever he goes. Doocy Dufus asked her about Biden’s imaginary “Ministry of Truth”, as he called it. She had to remind him that there is no such Ministry. But what does exist is a program created by Trump to target foreign disinformation that has been sold to desperate people who have been told that migrating to the United States from all points South of the Border is a better dream come true. Biden has only continued the program. The program is within the Department of Homeland Security and is called the Disinformation Governance Board. Dufus Doocy called it the Ministry of Truth. So Dufus, who gave you such misinformation?
Dystopia—the decisions of the United States Supreme Court to form a state or society that causes great harm, suffering and injustices more often by allowing the individual states to legislate a self contained totalitarian state is now happening in real-time. The Alito draft decision to do away with abortion rights for all women and to allow the states to criminalize such women and their medical professionals who offer aid, support and medical care for such women is barbaric. Alito references a 1609 Sir Matthew Hale who demonized the process of chemically inducing an abortion. In the article written by Lydia O’Connor for HuffPo, “…Alito cites him a half-dozen times throughout his draft as proof that abortion bans are an indispensable part of our country’s heritage.” Sir Matthew Hale, who Alito has some sort of affinity toward, had women killed he suspected as being witches. Alito believes that the voters should decide what laws are passed in their states, yet voter gerrymandering and voter suppression have appeared to be sanctioned by the Alito majority. “Furthermore, the will of the voters does not always determine the makeup of our country’s highest political and legal bodies. Alito himself was nominated to the high court by a man who became president without winning the popular vote. So were three of the other four justices who apparently want to strike down Roe: Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Neil Gorsuch.”
O’Connor wrote that Alito believes in the fetal heartbeat story to justify his opinion. ““The recent wave of abortion bans tied to the presence of “fetal heartbeats” is not based on real science, doctors have said for years. But Alito repeats the myths written those laws anyway, calling them “factual findings.” The Mississippi legislature “found that at five or six weeks’ gestational age an ‘unborn human beings heart begins beating,’ Alito wrote in one passage. But doctors say it’s wrong to call that a heartbeat, and doing so is just an attempt to manipulate people’s emotions. At six weeks of gestation, the cardiac activity in an embryo ― which is not yet called a fetus ― “doesn’t at all resemble what would eventually become a functioning human adult heart,” Dr. Colleen McNicholas, an obstetrician-gynecologist who performs abortions, told HuffPost in 2019. “At that point, it really is just these two tubes with a couple of layers of cardiac or heart cells that can vibrate or cause some sort of movement that we use colloquially to talk about a ‘fetal heartbeat.’”
In addition to Alito’s sketchy reasoning, we have three justices who lied and perjured themselves under oath when they told the Senate hearing committee members questioning them before a vote to allow t-RUMP’s nominations to go forward by saying that Roe was settled law, in their legal opinion. But now, once on the court, these three liars have sided with Alito to overturn Roe as being settled law. What kind of country has the U.S. turned into when the citizens cannot trust their own Supreme Court justices with their own testimonies, as well as verifying the facts before entering them in their briefs?
Mark Joseph Stern writing for Slate pointed out that “Alito’s broadside attack against “unenumerated rights” that aren’t “deeply rooted” in American history could be deployed against the right of same-sex couples to be intimate or get married. Like the right to decide to have an abortion, the right of same-sex couples to be married isn’t explicitly mentioned in the text of the Constitution. There aren’t state constitutional provisions or state or federal court cases from the 1800s or early 1900s recognizing those rights either.” So what bombs will the majority justices drop on the American people next?
Now we have members of the TANNP Congress calling out that the leak of the Alito draft was an insurrection. “GaySantis” for one and has-been and television huckster—Mike Huckabee being another. They believe that protesting peacefully against the abolition of Roe, or anything else that is dystopian in nature is an insurrection. They don’t seem to understand that the Alito draft isn’t an insurrection. What might the court do next: the abolition of LGBTQ rights, or Brown v Board of Education?
As in Afghanistan and other Muslim majority countries Sharia Law is what is followed by the government. Well, what about Catholic Canon Law taking precedence over secular law right here in the United States? Are the majority on the court following Canon Law and not the U.S. Constitution?
Marcia Coyle from the Constitutioncenter.org. said, “With the death of Justice Ginsburg, Justice Sotomayor appears to be the only justice on the court who believes in a high wall between church and state when religious organizations seek funding or other accommodations from the government, such as exemptions from federal health insurance mandates or state anti-discrimination laws or participation in state grant programs.” It appears that the high wall has been stripped down to nothing with the latest Alito draft decision.
