As We feared, Chief Justice John Roberts clearly Demonstrated he is the leader of a dangerous Court!

As we feared Chief Justice John Roberts clearly demonstrated he is the conservative leader of a conservative-leaning court. We continue to be subjugated and it only gets worse.
I haven't heard this discussed of late and we have to stay on top of this too. I want to discuss recent rulings in the Supreme Court that are favoring the right and threatening to undermine years of gains for the people. Back when Bush ridiculously attempted to put his lap dog Meirs in there we were concerned Bush was stacking the Supreme Court to push his perverted agenda through for years to come.
There use to be a measure that once someone got on the Supreme Court they tend to vote the opposite as expected. I was hoping that would continue to be the case with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Alito. It isn't appearing that way right now.
First I woke this morning to hear a nameless Senator say that never before in history have so many people disagreed with and been upset with the direction of the country. I am afraid we are all part of that group. Then they cut to the chief idiot who was saying everything is great including the immigration Bill and it must be passed.
Then I came in and turned on my computer to see the headline that Bush predicted another win, this time on the arm twisting of the immigration Bill. I say it so much I am sick of saying it as Bush just continues to get his arrogant underhanded way as he drags us into his new societal order.
Anyway with that in mind I was listening to recent developments in the Supreme Court thinking Bush is getting his way there too and it too will continue long after he is gone. Bush is a nightmare that keeps repeating, for us, the middle east, and the entire world. In Monday's Supreme Court rulings, Chief Justice John Roberts clearly demonstrated he is the conservative leader of a conservative-leaning court. In two of the court's high-profile cases, Roberts showed he will take an incremental approach to curbing some of the court's precedents.
In a case testing whether the 2002 campaign reform law could bar certain types of TV ads, Roberts supported the First Amendment right of a Wisconsin Right to Life group to air ads urging two senators to oppose the filibustering of judicial nominees.
That also means that an antiabortion group should have been allowed to air ads during the final two months before the 2004 elections. The law unreasonably limits speech and violates the group's First Amendment rights, the court said. The decision could lead to a bigger role for corporations, unions and other interest groups in the 2008 presidential and congressional elections.
That is a scary thought to me as I can see it being abused further to push these perverted right wing agenda's on us. This is very discomforting and can only get worse. The Supreme Court also ruled Monday that ordinary taxpayers cannot challenge a White House initiative that helps religious charities get a share of federal money. This is really troubling to me. We have to get Religion out of politics.
I am a to each his or her own find of person and I do not have a stance either way on the issue. I do not however appreciate being inundated by Religious right to life groups or perverted right wing agenda's. I do not like it at all! We are being further incapacitated. Where is the outrage?

I was afraid that John Roberts would be like this since everyone said how great he was.I am reading the T Boone articles you told me about and they are eye opening. I may have questions when I am finished.

Me too! I was hoping that he would follow historic Judicial nominees and vote the opposite as they normally would once they felt the weight of the Supreme Court on their shoulders but no such luck.
You could tell during the nomination process that he was lying and as usual we were being told only what we wanted to hear not what we were going to get.
Glad you were able to find the story on T Boone Pickens. i hope it is the one I wrote. Otherwise let me know and I will get it to you.
Definitely geves you a lot to think about that you don't hear and then you can put everything that is happening hewre and in the middle east in a different perspective.
Please feel free to ask away. Always hungry to banter with someone who cares.

Here is my story on T Boone Pickens. On top of everything else in here, it makes you think too about Bush's willingness to gum up the worlds major oil supply in the middle east and a soon to come war in the Gulf. again, please give me your thoughts.

It certainly appears that not only has politics overtaken religion and every aspect of life.

It has also enabled Bush and the neocon extreme to virtually get everything they desire, and the outrage is minimal.

Glad to see you. I just pulled a piece from Lou Dobbs that I sent to someone who said I was an idiot for thinking NAU was real. You might want to use this too. It is no Joke! Lou Dobbs is blowing things out of proportion too (0 / 0)
huh? You should wake up. It is because of the narrow mindedness you are displaying that our future is so imperilled.

DOBBS: Representatives of the United States, Canada and Mexico are preparing for a summer meeting to further the goals of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America. The SPP, which many consider to be simply a blueprint for the North American Union, would weaken U.S. laws and regulations and diminish American sovereignty. Kitty Pilgrim has our report.


KITTY PILGRIM, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): President Bush, former Mexican President Vicente Fox, and former Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin conceived the Security and Prosperity Partnership between the three countries in 2005. A summit is scheduled in Canada later this summer to flesh out more details, but current information on any agreements is scarce.

JOHN URQUHART, COUNCIL OF CANADIANS: The Security and Prosperity Partnership will deliver neither security nor prosperity for a simple reason that it's not, so far, been democratic. Most of the discussions have been taking place behind closed doors.

PILGRIM: Now, new documents have come to light about how U.S. taxpayers may end up footing the bill. Watchdog group Judicial Watch dug up documents through the Freedom of Information Act. It's a financial work plan that describes how U.S. taxpayers would fund grants to Mexico. The work plan states, "The establishment of a grant fund for development with U.S. and Canadian resources to finance the development of physical infrastructure in Mexico."

TOM FITTON, JUDICIAL WATCH: I don't like the idea of taxpayer money being spent on dubious government enterprises. And I certainly don't like the idea of taxpayer money being spent to build up Mexico's physical infrastructure. Mexico have plenty of inherent wealth as a result of its oil and as a result of the $20 billion or so a year that Mexican illegals here send through to Mexico.

PILGRIM: The group says the 10-page work plan for financial services was filed somewhat incongruously among Health and Human Service records. U.S. taxpayers would not be alone; Canadian funds would also be committed to the project. (END VIDEOTAPE)
Anyway, yes we have to somehow reimplement Separation of Church and State. Bush has certainly shown why it is essential. His damage to our America, the middle east, and the entire world is just beginning and will go on in many instances long after he is gone and it will not be controlled.
