Supreme Court to hear race-based affirmative action cases in 2022

Supreme Court has announced that it will reconsider race-based affirmative action in college admissions, a decision that could eliminate a practice that in recent years has primarily benefitted black and Hispanic applicants. The high court will specifically listen to challenges to policies at Harvard University and the University of North Carolina (UNC) that use […]

You just can’t continue to use “race” and not be complicit in “racism”.

Bill Maher torches Sotomayor for botching COVID facts: ‘That’s really ignorant for a Supreme Court justice’
The HBO star also calls out AOC for going to Florida and wonders why Kyrie Irving can’t play home games

“Real Time” host Bill Maher returned from his holiday break Friday and took aim at liberals for their responses to and handling of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Along the way, the HBO host commented on U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, NBA player Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

Maher kicked off the show’s panel discussion by listing all the COVID restrictions the United Kingdom is lifting from mask mandates to vaccine passports, saying “They’re getting back to normal, we should follow this.”

Unfortunately, it appears that Joe Biden is using sex & race as a critical criteria for deciding who to nominate for the Breyer’s replacement.

And, worse, when selections are made for “appearance”, then we wind up with a Justice like Sonia Sotomayor.  Virtually illiterate about the facts around Covid.

Hopefully the Senate will do it’s job and maybe administer an IQ test.

POLITICAL: Will SCOTUS punt or stand up for honest elections

Can the Supreme Court Unite to “Decimate” Texas’ Original Jurisdiction Case?
 — Could the Chief bring everyone together for a single merits ruling in a short time?
JOSH BLACKMAN | 12.11.2020 5:35 PM

Tom Goldstein writes that the Supreme Court should do more than dismiss Texas’s original jurisdiction case in a summary order. He says that the Supreme Court should “decimate” the motion with a written opinion.

It is perfectly ordinary and appropriate for the justices to write an opinion explaining the various reasons why they are rejecting Texas’ request. . . A simple five-page per curiam opinion genuinely could end up in the pantheon of all-time most significant rulings in American history. Every once in a long while, the court needs to invest some of its accumulated capital in issuing judgments that are not only legally right but also respond to imminent, tangible threats to the nation. That is particularly appropriate when, as here, the court finds itself being used as a tool to actively undermine faith in our democratic institutions — including by the members of the court’s bar on whom the justices depend to act much more responsibly.

Disclaimer: I’m not any kind of a lawyer. As a little L libertarian, I don’t like either the d’s or the R’s, but I have followed the anecdotal stories and the statistical analysis of the 2020 Election carefully.

If SCOTUS doesn’t address the blatant fraud in SOME fashion, I fear we will never have an honest election ever again. Why shouldn’t the “political parties” lie, cheat, and steal in ANY election they can? NO ONE is ever held to account, especially the rich and powerful politicians and bureaucrats. Maybe a few peons will get their wrist slapped but that’s about it.

Corrupt elections have been a national joke since the JFK’s dad stole the Presidency from Nixon. We joke about the “graveyard vote”, non-citizens voting, and all sorts of scams around registering to vote. Never mind, “harvesting” the nursing homes, homeless, and felons. And don’t forget the “walking around money” that gets distributed.

No, if SCOTUS punts on this, then it sends the wrong message to the power players to clean up their act. If SCOTUS was to disqualify the five or so States from sending electors, then that, by itself, would send a STRONG message about “law and order”. Anything less, means that the Republic is lost until the next revolution.

SCOTUS punted!

INTERESTING: Question about the SCOTUS terms

How about the idea of a single 18 year term for justices on the Supreme Court.

I’m adverse with tinkering with the wisdom of the Dead Old White Guys like was done with the direct election of senators.

BUTT (there’s always a big but) this proposal appears to have merit.

* each prez gets a pick; prevents “popular packing” by judges timing their “retirement”.

* doddering old “scholars” will be respectfully booted off.

* it presents a problem if one of them dies prematurely.

* probably should be accompanied by an age qualification (i.e. 65, 70,75?) to ensure that post-SCOTUS employment opportunities don’t enter into judicial decisions.

Your thoughts?
