Supreme Court Spurns Justice
US Supremes: Supremely unjust.
by Stephen Lendman
Several previous articles discussed the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) charity case. Five extraordinary human beings were wrongfully convicted and sentenced to long prison terms. They're doing hard time in America's gulag.
They learned the hard way about being Muslims in America at the wrong time. On Monday, the Supreme Court denied their final appeal for justice. More on that below.
The words "Equal Justice Under Law" adorn the Supreme Court Building's west facade. Facing east is the motto "Justice, the Guardian of Liberty."
Since the Court's 1789 establishment, these words belie its decisions, arguments, and "supreme" allegiance to power. "We the people" never mattered and don't now.
Privilege always counted most in America. Egalitarian principles exist in name only. Checks and balances, equity and justice, and democratic values are meaningless figures of speech.
