Ketanji Brown Jackson levels long-standing conservative claims against voting laws

By Travis Gettys
Published October 04, 2022


U.S. Supreme Court justice Ketanji Brown Jackson on Tuesday took aim at decades' worth of conservative arguments against race-based remedies to voting rights laws.

The newly sworn-in justice laid out her claims during oral arguments in the case, Merrill v. Milligan, challenging Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, which two judges appointed by Donald Trump previously ruled had been violated by Alabama's legislative map, and Jackson challenged the state's claim that the lower court's interpretation actually resulted in racial discrimination.

"I don't think that we can assume that just because race is taken into account that that necessarily creates an equal protection problem," Jackson began, "because I understood that we looked at the history and traditions of the Constitution and what the framers and the founders thought about, and when I drilled down to that level of analysis, it became clear to me that the framers themselves adopted the Equal Protection Clause, the 14th Amendment, the 15th Amendment, in a race-conscious way. That they were, in fact, trying to ensure that people who had been discriminated against, the freedmen, during the Reconstruction period, were actually brought equal to everyone else in society."


We'll Roberts what does your opinion and the other right fascist have to say about the 14th and 15th Amendment.....welllllllll were waiting.............

Supreme Court Jackson.........for the win....

SCOTUS May Give State Legislatures Right To Overturn Elections

Dahlia Lithwick explains the existential danger of this Supreme Court term.

By Susie Madrak — October 4, 2022
Dahlia Lithwick pointed out to Rachel Maddow last night how important it is to pay attention to all the moving parts of democracy.

"This is sort of the time if you are concerned about democracy, if you are concerned about what's happening in your state, now, today's the day, where we are far enough in the election, where you still have time to ask yourself -- what am I gonna say I did? What was my role in helping? How did I participate in trying to hold up this thing that I say I value," Maddow said.

"One of the things that I'm scared about, is that one of the things we tell each other, about how to make change is to vote, I'm very worried about the Voting Rights Act, and what they will be hearing tomorrow. What are your expectations in terms of the dilution of voting rights for minorities, and threats to the court this year?"


And to add to this right wing fascist court being led by that whining Roberts, this court has a justice on the bench (Gorsuch that should not even be sitting there because of #Moscow Mitch stunt) that is going to make a determination in the EPA on water rights, and his mother (Gorsuch) wanted to dismantle the EPA while in the Ronnie Raygun administrations, that POS. Gorsuch should have recused himself, and the new justice on the court, Justice Brown basically took Gorsuch down a couple of places with his BS questioning on the case.......

Reporter reveals new detail that 'puts Trump at the center' of stolen docs case

By Travis Gettys
Published October 04, 2022


A detail from a new Washington Post report shows that Donald Trump was personally involved in returning only a portion of the government documents the National Archives had repeatedly asked him to return.

The former president asked one of his lawyers to tell the National Archives earlier this year that he had returned all the documents, which the attorney refused to do because he wasn't sure it was true, and the Post's Jacqueline Alemany told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that Trump personally packed the boxes himself -- suggesting that he was fully aware that additional materials remained at Mar-a-Lago.

"This is true, that Trump himself eventually packed all of the boxes after very reluctantly agreeing to do so," Alemany said. "Remember, the National Archives and Trump's lawyers were going back and forth on this as early as May. This issue, again, was flagged by lawyers in Trump's White House two weeks prior to Trump even leaving the White House and going down to Mar-a-Lago."

Ron Johnson admits 'one hour' involvement in election plot after claiming it was just 'seconds'

By David Edwards
Published October 04, 2022

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) reportedly admitted that his involvement in a plot to overthrow the 2020 election spanned one hour after previously claiming it only lasted a "couple of seconds."

Following the election, Johnson said that he was asked to give an alternate slate of electors to then-Vice President Mike Pence in an effort to give the presidency to then-President Donald Trump.

"I had virtually no involvement," the senator told a local reporter last month. "Literally, my involvement lasted seconds, OK?"


Yeah right and your fucking signature on letter to throw out the election was what three seconds.....you were conspiring prior to this traitor...... .


'Shaken' law professors revolt as hyper-partisan SCOTUS rulings 'upend constitutional principles'

BY Alex Henderson, AlterNet
Published October 03, 2022


For generations, the U.S. Supreme Court expanded or upheld civil liberties, from freedom of the press in New York Times v. Sullivan (1964) to access to contraception in Griswold v. Connecticut (1965) and Eisenstadt v. Baird (1972) to gay rights in Lawrence v. Texas (2003) and Obergefell v. Hodges (2015) to interracial marriage in Loving v. Virginia (1967). But when the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ruling was handed down on June 24 and Roe v. Wade was overturned after 49 years, the High Court’s radical-right majority demonstrated that it had no problem rejecting precedent and rolling back civil liberties.

Moreover, Justice Clarence Thomas, in Dobbs, recommended that the High Court also “reconsider” Griswold, Lawrence and Obergefell. Civil libertarians fear that with socially conservative justices having attacked abortion rights, everything from gay rights to contraception is also in danger.

Over the years, there has been much discussion in law schools of the role the Court has played in expanding rights, but now that the Court is rolling rights back, how are law schools responding? Journalist Mark Joseph Stern tackles that subject in an article published by Slate on October 2.

Democratic foe nails Ron DeSantis for the lie that Lee County 'wasn't even in the cone' of Hurricane

Democratic foe nails Ron DeSantis for the lie that Lee County 'wasn't even in the cone' of Hurricane Ian's path

By Sarah K. Burris
Published October 02, 2022

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) spoke to the press while in Arcadia, Florida on Sunday and claimed that Hurricane Ian wasn't aimed at Ft. Meyers when they were doing evacuations and that they assumed it was going to hit Tampa.

"Well, was your industry stationed when the storm hit? Was it in Lee County? No, you were in Tampa. So, they were following the weather track and they had to make decisions based on that. But, you know, 72 hours they weren't even in the cone. At 48 hours they were on the periphery. So, you've got to make decisions the best you can," said DeSantis, making it seem as if the media was what influenced his decisions for evacuations.

Ali Velshi with MSNBC was stationed in Naples, Florida, which is actually about 44 miles south of Ft. Meyers and over 160 miles south of Tampa.
