The Illegitimate Institution Unpacks After “Beach Week”:  Time To Start Packin’ The Court (October 1, 2018)

Posted in Courage, Courts, Supreme Court on October 1, 2018 by e-commentary.org

K          “There is a cancer in the current Court.”

J          “The current Court is the cancer.”

. . .

K          “I do believe Dr. Blasey Ford.  I do not believe Brett Kavanaugh.”

J          “I do not believe Brett Kavanaugh.  I do believe Dr. Blasey Ford.”

. . .

K          “Thomas has confirmed the claims of those who claimed that he is unqualified.  He doubled down on the incompetence out of spite.”

J          “Gorsuch is occupying the ‘Stolen Seat’ without any reservation or compunction.”

K          “And the ‘American Psycho’ is set to assume the third illegitimate seat.”

. . .

K          “Why not?  The argument is that if you do it, they will do it.”

J          “So be it.  Something must be done.  Do it.  Pack it.”

. . .

K          “Only a few Americans realize that the appointments are not for life, they are ‘during good behaviour.’  They are behaving badly.  They need to go.  The Democrats need to present a coherent vision and future and then start impeachment hearings against the illegitimate Justices.”

J          “But the Democrats are weak, effete, feckless and craven.”

. . .

J          “Kavanaugh is ethically obligated to recuse himself from any case involving the Democratic Party, the ACLU, any left wing group broadly defined, voting cases, partisan gerrymandering cases, claims involving Presidential immunity and authority, the Environmental Protection Agency and global climate change, immigration, and other issues.”

K          “Or Roberts must preclude him from participating and deciding.  Someone needs to keep track of any cases in which he participates and later when the forces of light are in control to issue an omnibus order holding all of the holdings void ab initio.”

J          “Each failure to recuse himself is a separate impeachable offense.”

. . .

J          “He observed that if you gave some credence to packing the Court, you would not get into Yale.”

K          “That’s the heart of the problem.  That’s the game in America.  Kavanaugh was angry and frustrated that the ordinary people did not understand that because he got into Yale, all his sins and transgressions were forgiven.”

J          “Secular redemption in today’s America.  Perhaps part of a comprehensive solution is to close Yale and to close Harvard, convert the dorms into low income housing and use the funds to create a great educational institution open to individuals with intellect and integrity and the oft-forgotten . . . character.”

J          “And closed to those who do not have character.”

. . .

K          “Any chance that the Senate will do right?”

J          “Not.  A.  Chance.”
