The Corrupt Supreme Court
GOVERNMENT BY OLIGARCHY
The Roberts Court, which had already been roundly criticized and condemned for their Citizens United decision that opened the floodgates to devaluating the already weak federal and state election finance laws, just doubled down on their ineptitude, and contempt for democracy this week with a similar decision, and finished the job of letting America's oligarchy have all but complete control of the government. In other words, 5 of 9 judges on the Court, Roberts, Kennedy, Scalia, Thomas and Alito just told the common public that they don't care whether anybody likes that their decision pretty much enshrines fascism in the United States, or that their activist "law-making" goes hypocritically against the strict constructionism that this so-called conservative wing of the Court were once reputed to have endorsed.
It was only a few days ago that some billionaire Nevadan had high profile Republican contenders for president groveling at his feet, and one apologizing for misspeaking, in order to get his blessing for their candidacies. This is what mainstream politics has come down to, groveling to the oligarchy, and doing their bidding.
As for the five judges that came down with this recent ruling, this is not the conservative wing of the Court, this is the fascist wing (minus Breyer for this decision), and the sooner Americans amend the Constitution to bring orderly finance rules and democracy into elections, the more likely we will resemble a democracy, again.
Commoner is 99% certain that the 2004 G.O.P. primary election was stolen from Mark Greene and handed to a political novice. Help us solve the mystery of "The Other Curious Election of 2004" (WA 9th Congressional District U.S. Rep. primary) by contacting real journalists and asking them to look into it, and writing or calling the U.S. Attorney for Western Washington, Jenny Durkan, and requesting that she make public all matters relating to the '04 primary. Regarding the journalists, ask them to use "Freedom of Information" requests to get to the bottom of this case. For more information: see 2/26/13 post entitled "Major Election Irregularities (Graph & Essay), and from there, there will be a list of other related posts on Commoner. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
If possible, please, consider contributing to the Party of Commons, by sending a check or money order ($10 recommended), or contribute to Mark's U.S. Representative campaign that will be on the ballot in August, 2014 (checks should be made out to "Mark Greene for Congress"); for either matter, write to P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. Thank you!
