Roberts redux

So it’s looking like maybe Kavanaugh wasn’t worth battling for, except maybe as a way of giving a last fuck-you finger to the Left before Black Tuesday.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas criticized his fellow justices Monday for refusing to do their job when they rejected a case about state efforts to defund the abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

Thomas said the court made a “mess” of the matter, and blamed the other justices for not wanting to touch a case involving the abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

“What explains the court’s refusal to do its job here? I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named ‘Planned Parenthood,’” Thomas wrote in his dissenting opinion.

Justices Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch joined Thomas, but Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh joined the four liberal justices in refusing to hear the case.

Thomas is of course our greatest, wisest Justice, and we can all be thankful for his presence on the Court. But does it get even worse with Kavanaugh? Why yes; yes, it does.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia by President George W. Bush, accepted the assumption in a dissenting opinion he filed last October in the case of Garza v. Hargan that a teenage illegal alien caught at the border and put in detention has a right to an abortion in the United States.

At the same time, Kavanaugh conceded that “this case presents a new situation not yet directly confronted by the Supreme Court.”

Kavanaugh argued that in saying the illegal alien teen had a right to abortion in the United States he was accepting the government’s assumption regarding existing Supreme Court precedents.

Kavanaugh did say that the majority of the appeals court was mistaken in saying the illegal alien had “a right to immediate abortion on demand.” He argued the government could delay the abortion while seeking to find the illegal alien a sponsor.

Kavanaugh wrote that “under Supreme Court precedent in analogous contexts, it is not an undue burden for the U.S. Government to transfer an unlawful immigrant minor to an immigration sponsor before she has an abortion, so long as the transfer is expeditious.”

Codswallop. An illegal alien has NO rights in this country—NONE—no matter how badly any black-robed contortionist must fold, spindle, and/or mutilate the law trying to to create one.

Guess we can look for plenty of Roberts-like gyrations from Kavanaugh in the future, more’s the pity. And since the Democrat Socialists paid no price at all on election day for their abhorrent abuse of the advise-and-consent function during his confirmation hearings, the fight to secure his place on the Court looks like worse than a waste of time.

Overall, Trump has done very well with his judicial appointments; it’s one of his signal achievements in office, and given current conditions will end up being his primary legacy. But nobody can hit a home run every time, I guess.

Update! Bill ain’t happy either:

We all know that those appointed by Democrat Presidents will simply vote in mindless lockstep against any outcome that advances conservative principles in any way.  But what we should also realize is that Republican appointees will always provide support in sufficient numbers to the leftist wing of the court to ensure that anything tightly balanced will fall to the left side of the bench.

Hence we got Kennedy, who bludgeoned Scalia into adding the infamous “Scalia Dicta” to the Heller decision, thus creating holes through which lower courts are still driving gigantic legal trucks – and SCOTUS itself refuses to clarify what Heller and McDonald mean and thus close those holes.

Then we have the intriguing spectacle of another GOP appointee, (a Bush appointee, natch) in John Roberts actually making up excuses even the Obama government denied in order to maintain Obamacare.

And now we have another GOP (Trump) appointee who, right out of the box, sides with Roberts in preventing the court from hearing another case that, if decided in a conservative direction, might inconvenience the massive Democrat contribution and abortion mill, Planned Parenthood.

It doesn’t matter how many little bullshit “victories” we get over obscure regulatory issues, history teaches us that the monolithic leftist wall on the court, always coupled with a sufficiency of “conservative” judges, will make damned sure that we lose on the defining issues that direct the course of our nation.

The government ratchet only turns one way: Left.

  1. Giving a last fuck-you finger to the Left is always worthwhile. It’s the only reason I don’t regret supporting GWB all those years – it let me give ’em both middle fingers at once.

  2. God damn it. In the old days, when you bought a car, you could pretty much count on it going until the the last payment was made before it expensively conked out on you. This car still has the new car smell, and suddenly the transmission is shot and not covered by warranty. What is the point of “fighting” for anything anymore?
