Charles Koch owns six Supreme Court Justices

The glue that connects Jeffrey Clark, John Eastman, Ginni Thomas, and the Guy who was air-dropped into the DOJ, is the money of Charles Koch.

If you subpoena Charles Koch you will find out who is running SCOTUS.
According to Forbes, Koch has a net worth of $59.8 billion, making him the 17th richest man in the world. Charles Koch, and his late brother, David, functioned as backroom party bosses, behind the veil of a sprawling network of tax-exempt front groups, for 40 years.

Ocasio-Cortez Says US ‘Witnessing a Judicial Coup in Process’

June 30, 2022 “It is our duty to check the Court’s gross overreach of power in violating people’s inalienable rights and seizing for itself the powers of Congress and the president.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) speaks at a rally in New York City on June 5, 2021.
Progressive powerhouse Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez warned Thursday that the United States is “witnessing a judicial coup in progress,” a reaction by the Democratic congresswoman to a raft of highly consequential Supreme Court rulings and the justices’ scheduled hearing of a critical voting rights case. “All our leaders—regardless of party—must recognize this constitutional crisis for what it is.”

BIS To Allow Member Banks To Hold 1% Of Their Reserves In Bitcoin

The BIS, a foreign body that is not elected, essentially dictates central bank decisions well outside the purview of individual governments. The interest of the BIS in Bitcoin is particularly fascinating as it follows a strange pattern among global banks, which is to vocally criticize cryptocurrencies in the media while quietly investing millions or billions of dollars into crypto technology and infrastructure. This has been true of major banks from JP Morgan to Goldman Sachs along with numerous central banks including the Federal Reserve.

Nazi Christian fascist thugs do NOT want Democracy.

This is the important point. The white wing is not *winning*…  they’re changing the rules of democracy so that they can institute minority rule.
They are CHEATING.
And
#WhiteSupremacy infrastructure is assisting.
Subverting democracy is the only move they have left.
Republican Senators on Twitter today admitting that their strategy was to pack the courts with political conservatives in order to enact an agenda that was too unpopular to pass through an elected, popularly accountable Congress.

Originalism is Bullshit!

Nothing in the Constitution requires Congress to pay for Supreme Court clerks. Or secretaries. Or air conditioning. Better yet, nothing in the Constitution says Justices get lifetime appointments, only appointments for as long as they are in good behavior.

Fun fact: clerks used to be paid out of pocket by the Justices themselves! Alito should prove his adherence to originalism by doing just that. And to take care of all the vacancies on the appellate courts, the SCOTUS justices should be forced to “ride circuit” again and travel to all the districts far and wide to hear cases. We have a long tradition of doing that, and Alito LOVES tradition!

Shouldn’t people be absolutely livid that the Supreme Court just helped the fossil fuel industry destroy our planet? The media often says “in a blow to environmentalists” as if we’re the only ones who live on Planet Earth.  Amy Coney Barrett’s father, an attorney for Shell Oil for many years, must be so proud of her!

Democrats need to scrap the filibuster and immediately protect the right to an abortion
. The stakes are too high + we have already waited too long. Send me to D.C. and I will proudly cast that 51st vote to eliminate the filibuster + codify the right to an abortion into law.

This is proof of strategy not a theory. This is an actual conspiracy!

Trump has been intimidating witnesses by selecting their lawyers and paying their legal fees. It’s no wonder it took Cassidy Hutchinson so long to come forward. We’re still thinking about Jared Kushner and the $2,000,000,000 his new company got from Saudi Arabia after he left the White House.

Roberts, Kavanaugh and Coney Barrett were all on the Bush legal team during the 2000 election recount in Florida. Recall that SCOTUS stepped in to stop the count and give Bush the win over Gore. Although I was angry in 2000 because I knew Gore won, I did not yet grasp the far-reaching consequences.

Steady decline of democracy since then.

In 1869, Congress set the number of Supreme Court justices at 9 to align with the fact that there were 9 circuit courts. There are now 13 circuit courts. The Supreme Court has gutted the civil rights of pregnant people, the voting rights of Black people, the sovereignty of tribal nations, the authority of the federal government to enforce regulations, and the ability of states to enact gun safety laws.

@algore
Today’s decision is a disappointment, but it’s not a surprise. It’s the result of coordination by the fossil fuel lobby to dismantle progress toward climate solutions. This ruling does not mean we are out of options! We must call on Congress to pass climate legislation.
This comes at the end of a term that will be remembered for moving America backwards. To address the climate crisis, we must address the democracy crisis. We must harness this moment to galvanize change. My statement on WV v EPA

Scientific evidence is overwhelming Global Warming Climate change has already begun, Just another reason why Joe Biden HAS TO expand supreme court and bring it into the 21at century. We not only have Zealots on supreme court but science denier’s too.

In just a matter of days, this Supreme Court has dealt serious blows to:

Reproductive rights.
Gun safety.
Privacy.
And now to the planet.

All because Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump stacked the Court.
Time to unstack it — expand the Court.

The British Medical Association announces that Americans who cannot get abortions due to the overturn of Roe should be offered free services in the United Kingdom — something Republicans would be helpless to stop.

Democrats Damage Done Making things even worse

If ever there was the need to get a Democratic majority in the House and Senate, it is in November, 2022!

Former White House aide Alyssa Farah, a friend of Cassidy Hutchinson, just revealed that “Trumpworld” has been paying for lawyers for witnesses testifying before the 1/6 committee — Hutchinson initially had a Trump-provided lawyer but got a new lawyer to tell the full story.

4500 FBI tips came in on Brett Kavanaugh and the White House deleted them all. Want to tell me why Kavanaugh gets a pass?! With the recent decisions SCOTUS handed down it’s clear that 5 men and 1 woman want to sit in their comfy houses with taxpayer security and watch this country burn.

 

Has anyone figured out how to fight disinformation when credible information is paywalled and fake news is free?

WHAT IS THE DEMOCRAT PLAN?

@RepAdamSchiff
President Biden just endorsed changing the filibuster to protect Roe v. Wade.
I wholeheartedly agree.
Senators, you have the support of your party, your president, and the American people.
What are you waiting for?

He should codify Indigenous sovereignty rights as well.

Slavery, segregation, voting rights, gerrymandering and abortion all have one thing in common:
“States rights.”
Since the first draft of the constitution, “Leave it up to the states” has been code for “Leave it up to the racists.”

@billbuc Christo-fascist conservatives in Council for National Policy, Federalist Society and Earth spoilers in Big Oil have conspired, maneuvered & cheated for years to curb US democracy because they can’t honestly win elections. Now they’re in their endgame and IT’S OUR MOVE.

The outrage that DeJoy still has his Job!

The way authoritarians are able to successfully seize power, is to wear you down and make you lose hope.

 

Want to live in a Christo-fascist state? If not, we must mobilize and get out the vote and make a statement at midterms! We need 2 Senate seats and to keep the House.

KAGAN “The current Court is textualist only when being so suits it. When that method would frustrate broader goals, special canons like the ‘major questions doctrine’ magically appear as get out-of-text-free cards”

Democrats have six months to curb the power of this Court and they are not even trying. Supreme court is about to give total license to state legislatures to impose minority rule and unilaterally assign electoral votes ahead of 2024, all based on a nonsense doctrine with no basis in history or law.

The Supreme Court takes up a case about the independent state legislature doctrine for next term, which could give state legislatures far greater power over all manner of election laws.

A Florida judge said he will temporarily block the state’s new law that would ban all abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. In a stinging defeat for Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Florida judge said he will temporarily block a new law that would prohibit all abortions in the state after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

Educational CyberPlayGround NetHappenings: Best Sworn Testimony Before Congress Ever

Under a new civics program launched by Gov. DeSantis, the Florida DoE is partnering with Hillsdale College to offer professional training to public K-12 teachers. Teachers paid $3000.00 to take the class for the Covid budget that he never spent on protecting citizens from covid.

Desantis is spreading another virus of lies about the facts in history.

Here is what teachers were shown last week about:
See for yourself: the slides shown to teachers during Florida’s civics training sessions
https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/education/article262982363.html

The Florida Department of Education’s training of educators on new civics standards for K-12 public schools is underway and has prompted some critical comments. When Gov. Ron DeSantis announced the initiative last April, he said that it was designed to “ensure our students are prepared to be great citizens.” But several South Florida high school educators who sat through the first three-day session last week said they were alarmed that the state’s teaching methodology was infused with a Christian and conservative ideology. The PDF files below are the presentation slides the department provided to the Herald/Times after a public records request. The materials only reflect the presentations, not the instruction that the state trainers delivered to public school teachers during the sessions. Educators interviewed by the Herald/Times said that most of their concerns took place during the explanation of the materials.
