On issues mattering most, judicial allegiance to power most always prevails over “we the people.”
The prevailing fiction — as portrayed time and again on the silver screen — is that constitutional checks and balances restrain government so that justice prevails over the other way around, according to the rule of law.
Reality is worlds apart from the above fiction.
Throughout its history — notably now with wealth and power more concentrated than ever — the US was always ruled by men (including privileged women today), not laws.
They lie, connive, misinterpret and pretty much do what they want for their own self-interest and powerful constituents.
The Constitution’s “We the People” opening words reflect subterfuge. So is Article I, Section 8 stating:
“The Congress shall have power to…provide for (the) general welfare of the United States” – the so-called welfare clause applicable also to the Executive and High Court.
The record refutes the above. The notion of governance of, by and for everyone equitably never existed in US or other Western societies.
Ordinary people don’t govern directly or through representatives. They’re controlled and ill-served by powerful interests.
Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes once explained that the Supreme Court “has taken its task to be the constitutionalization of a totally immoral, rapacious, economic system instead of the promotion of justice, domestic tranquility, the general welfare, and the blessings of liberty.”
For every William Brennan and Thurgood Marshall, they’ve been countless numbers of right-wing extremist justices that serve privileged interests over most others.
Michael Parenti called the High Court the “aristocratic” branch of government.
Throughout US history, it sided with “landed interests than with the landless, the slave owners rather than the slaves, the industrialists rather than the workers.”
Its members are appointed, serve for life, and have great power for good or ill.
They nearly always support institutions of power, notably corporate America.
Even during the New Deal 1930s and Great Society 1960s, “the Supreme Court was the activist bastion of laissez-faire capitalism” in spite of partially going the other way for short-term moments.
It always reverted to form, notably since the neoliberal 90s.
Especially after seasonal flu was renamed covid, fundamental rights as mandated under international and constitutional law no longer matter.
There’s virtual unanimity among High Court justices for toxic mass-jabbing despite millions irreversibly harmed in the US/West and elsewhere, including hundreds of thousands eliminated by their deadly toxins.
The right of bodily integrity as mandated by the 14th Amendment is virtually null and void.
The right of Pharma profiteering reversed it.
So did support of all three branches of government for mass-extermination of unwanted people at home and abroad, along with pushing the envelope toward establishment of social control tyranny.
On Friday, the Wall Street Journal reported that legal challenges by healthcare workers, firefighters, students and others for judicial help to halt toxic mass-jabbing nearly always failed.
Limited exceptions for religious objections were exceptions to the rule.
The Journal quoted Network for Public Health Law’s deputy director Jennifer Piatt, saying:
“What we’re seeing are courts finding that mandates are lawful and constitutional” — even when otherwise.
The Journal left unexplained that they’re unrelated to protecting health.
They’re all about destroying it and what remains of mostly eroded freedoms.
Like most often on all issues mattering most, US courts nearly always side with the devil, hardly ever the other way around.
The rule of law and general welfare do not protect against injustice.
The diabolical plot by US dark forces against public health and freedoms vital to preserve has near full support from the judicial branch of government.
It’s one of many reasons for mass rebellion against what no one should tolerate.
The stakes are too great for anything less.
