That headline is an understatement, not an exaggeration, for what the Supreme Court has done to this country over the past couple of days.
Between their radical, right-wing extremist decision to overturn sensible, rational gun legislation on the books in New York State for more than 100 years to their radical, right-wing extremist decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the political hacks that now control the Supreme Court have finally shown their true colors, after having dishonestly hidden them, especially during their confirmation hearings.
The only question in my mind is not how bad things are going to get in this country, but how quickly.
This bunch has clearly signaled that they do not give one hoot about what public opinion is about abortion, gun control nor anything else. They have now shown that they are going to do whatever they can to impose their personal political and religious views on the rest of the country whether the rest of the country likes it or not.
And it’s now not just a matter of what they intend to do, but in what order.
These brazen political actions by the Supreme Court to legislate from the bench are likely only precursors to what the near future holds.
These political extremists are just itching to get the right cases so they can overturn things like….Obamacare, Medicare, Civil Rights and Social Security, not to mention gay rights, consumer rights and workers’ rights, among other things, by simply declaring them unconstitutional. Which is exactly what their overlords at the Federalist Society had in mind for these justices, who are owned, bought and paid-for shills.
We had all better fasten our seat belts, because the events of the past two days clearly show a Supreme Court run amok. And if they are this shameless in their disrespect and disregard for the American public, which overwhelmingly supports abortion rights and sensible gun legislation, one can only imagine what their next targets will be.
While it might take some time time to impose their for radical agenda on other fronts, it seems clear that they are simply waiting for the right cases at the right moments to do so.
And they have signaled to their fellow radical, right-wing extremists that it’s now time to file whatever cases they possibly can come up with to give the court an excuse to usurp its political powers in whatever way they can, both precedented and unprecedented.
Just imagine the daydreams that people like Clarence Thomas, Sam Alito, Brett Kavenaugh, Neil Gorsuch and Amy Coney Barrett are having now about what they can do to Obamacare , Medicare, Social Security, Civil Rights, workers rights and consumer rights, among other things.
These folks have clearly demonstrated that they simply do not give two hoots about the American public; they are going to do whatever they can to impose their own personal political and religious views down everyone’s throats.
This is the very definition of judicial activism...and judicial overreach.
