High Court Injustice - by Stephen Lendman


Two June 2010 decisions show the workings of a right wing High Court, with five Federalist Society members - Chief Justice John Roberts, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, Anthony Kennedy, and Samuel Alito.

Once confirmed, Elana Kagan will solidify their control when the Court reconvenes in October - her record exposing extremist positions, including outlandish anti-terrorism practices, unconstitutional federal litigation, and "love (for) the Federalist Society," affirming her endorsement of an organization supporting rolling back civil liberties; defiling human rights; ending New Deal social policies; opposing reproductive choice, government regulations, labor rights, and environmental protections; subverting justice in defense of privilege; and as Solicitor General, arguing against First Amendment rights without which all others are at risk - an ideology the Court endorses, one protecting privilege against the rule of law.

In his same day article, New York Times writer, Adam Liptak, headlined, "Court Affirms Ban on Aiding Groups Tied to Terror (despite no tie whatever), saying:


"In a case pitting free speech against the national security, the Supreme Court....upheld (in a 6 - 3 decision) a federal law that makes it a crime to provide 'material support' to foreign terrorist organizations, even if (it entails) training for peacefully resolving conflicts."


Affirming a bogus terrorist threat, Chief Justice Roberts wrote:

"At bottom, plaintiffs (supporting free speech) simply disagree with the considered judgment of Congress and the executive that providing material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization - even seemingly benign support - bolsters the terrorist activities of that organization."
