Quote Of The Century

zombie supreme court

“…When decisions are reached through democratic means, some people will inevitably be disappointed with the results. But those whose views do not prevail at least know that they have had their say, and accordingly are—in the tradition of our political culture—reconciled to the result of a fair and honest debate. In addition, they can gear up to raise the issue later, hoping to persuade enough on the winning side to think again. “That is exactly how our system of government is supposed to work.” Post, at 2–3 (SCALIA, J., dissenting). But today the Court puts a stop to all that. By deciding this question under the Constitution, the Court removes it from the realm of democratic decision. There will be consequences to shutting down the political process on an issue of such profound public significance. Closing debate tends to close minds. People denied a voice are less likely to accept the ruling of a court on an issue that does not seem to be the sort of thing courts usually decide…”

 — Obergefell v. Hodges, 576 U.S. —  (2015), Roberts, C.J,, dissenting, at 26-27

  1. SCOTUS is irrelevant.

    • SCOTUS is VERY relevant so long as the Executive goes unchecked. The Burwell ruling makes the law Feudal in implementation. The king calls up the court, gives its desires, the court defines the relevant excuse for reinventing the English language then the king executes under the color of law.

      What HAS become irrelevant is Congress. There is no use even voting for, supporting for election, electing, impeaching or otherwise talking to a CongressCritter. So long as the Court can define what ‘is’ is, any law issued by Congress has no statutory meaning. (well except for getting tax funded graft that is….)

      Prepare.

      • “The Burwell ruling makes the law Feudal in implementation.”

        All the laws, always were. Burwell was the first time (in history AFAIK) that any rulers explicitly admitted it, in clear unambiguous language. BIG difference, as I’m sure they’ll come to know and rue. Always was the best thing going—never underestimate the idiocy of idiots.

    • bikermailman

      As drddog09 says, they’re quite relevant. They are lending their approval to actions the President, Congress, and bureaucratic agencies take. This will make it legitimate in the eyes of those whose eyes are not (yet) open, allowing the further encroachment of agents of Evil. Not a particularly religious guy here, but one cannot see what’s happening in the world and not see Evil, whether you consider it simple human nature or part of the eternal battle of the spiritual world.

    • I have to agree w/ the other posters.

      They give the oligarchs (and their armed thugs) the public rubber stamp to do what they do in order to maintain power.

      The Berlin Wall was relevant as long as there were guards who would shoot people who attempted to go over, around or under it.

      Men with guns will still do the same here when it comes to their rules.

  2. When a governing body acts in a manner that exceeds its delegated, the body has declared illegitimacy, and thus loses all authority.

    This decision is so much more than “judicial activism:, it is a declaration of tyranny.

  7. Scalia also called it “social transformation without representation.” Smart fella.

    • He’s also usually pretty honest. He wrote the following in his dissent:

      “So it is not of special importance to me what the law says about mar- riage. It is of overwhelming importance, however, who it is that rules me. Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court.”

      I wonder if that was the first time he thought of that. I think his peers have had that idea for quite a while now.

      • “Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court.”

        This is my thought exactly. Sure doesn’t sound like a representative republic.

  8. Uh, why is marriage a matter for the court at all?

    • There is no proper State involvement in an arrangement between two people and their deities.

      But that also means all state subsidies of such arrangements should cease.

      As they will.

      • Thank you. I tried to explain that to someone this morning. I think they got it. The spew from the radio was epic, one quote I grabbed this morning was from some advocate or someshit who said “Up til now we have had this you know sort of patchwork quilt of laws in different states, and now that’s all gone and we have ONE FEDERAL LAW.”

        There was also the cherished cry of “Now it’s the Law of the Land” blah blah.

        Put a fork in her.

      • “There is no proper State involvement in an arrangement between two people and their deities.”

        The question screams…”So when is it proper?” If it’s to stop street thugs, then I don’t buy it. Anything else, it’s they themselves who need to be stopped. Is there any more to it?

    • Because marriage is big business for govt and gay marriage = lots of votes. Guess who will take the credit for this “victory”?

      • I can see your point. It makes no sense, except for the ruling class and the bureaucrats. I guess what I don’t understand is why gays would want to invite government into their personal arrangements, and why straights would want to preserve their submissive relationship with government vis-a-vis marriage. It appears to be a competition over which side can lick more boots.

        • It appears to be a competition over which side can lick more boots.

          It is. Imagine all the actions which are physically possible to do with a human body. Six billion humans, you would expect to find them doing six billion different activities, but we don’t. The reason most humans lick boots is because they are genetically programmed by political instincts inherited from monkey/ape ancestors to want to lick boots.

        • Many people have self-destructive urges; they’re daredevils, they’re druggies, they live hand to mouth or worse. Paul, you do not have the self-destructive urge to obey politicians, and to you such self-abuse makes no emotional sense.

        • Why?
          A ‘legal’ ride on Uncle Sugar’s gravy train.

    “INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana will not comply with President Barack Obama’s plan to battle climate change by requiring reductions in emissions from coal-fired power plants, Republican Gov. Mike Pence said Wednesday.
    ….
    Indiana is not the only state to defy the president on the issue. Oklahoma’s Republican Gov. Mary Fallin issued an executive order in April prohibiting her state from developing a plan to reduce its carbon dioxide emission from power plants.
    ….
    By not complying with the rule, Indiana would refuse to file a state plan to meet its carbon emissions goal. As a result, the EPA would impose a federal plan on Indiana, which the state then would likely challenge in court.
    ….
    A federal appeals court earlier this month threw out a lawsuit from a coalition of Indiana and 14 other states that claimed the EPA exceeded its authority last year when it proposed climate change plan.”

But those whose views do not prevail at least know that they have had their say, and accordingly are — in the tradition of our political culture — reconciled to the result of a fair and honest debate. In addition, they can gear up to raise the issue later, hoping to persuade enough on the winning side to think again.

    Now lie back and enjoy your rape, there’s ten of us and one of you and we outvoted you. What, you can tell that’s evil? Then make the numbers ten million of us and one million of you and you’ll be confused. Oh sure, a famous legal document used to say that most areas of life were not subject to voting, but we outvoted you when we repealed that, too.

    Democracy is what pirates do. Anarchy and limited government are not next-door neighbors. Ron Paul still believes official counterfeiters should be obeyed, despite having written books about why official counterfeiting is horrible. Doublethink is a mental illness.

  13. Now things are starting to get dicey. Me thinks this may be the impetus that makes the rubber hit the road.Cries for civil disobedience were going out all across the wire within minutes of the decision.

    • Odd you mention that. On one radio station I heard a mainline pastor of a fairly prominent church say to prepare for civil disobedience. No washing it with buried metaphor, but ‘civil disobedience’. That same evening I was watching late night news and the talking head said essentially the same thing. To hear that on a regulated air wave station was eye opening.

    • Jay,

      Actions speak louder than words.

  14. So (and not to be a troll), when on an individual level, is enough enough? What is the ‘breaking point’ for the back bone (not intended to be a pun) of this country? Who will take a stand? Who will support that person? Who will support those persons?

    • bikermailman

      When the first church is legally assaulted (or the first individual, via ‘ally cards’, look it up), who will surround the church or individual to protect them from the mobs or agents of the State? Not a rhetorical question, it’s coming. Talk to your local pastors, coworkers, compatriots, it. is. going. to. be. an. issue.

        Most of us obey the Ten Commandments, especially the commandment against murder. Honestly I think that’s the only thing holding a lot of people back. However, the enemy has designs on our liberties and our very lives, so they are going to eventually cross a line and physical resistance against them will no longer be murder but righteous defense.

  15. SCOTUS rewrites the law, then says it’s Constitutional…

    And in what fucking universe is that supposed to happen?

    • And in what fucking universe is that supposed to happen?

      Read the WORDS slowly, and LET – IT – SINK – IN Malgus:

      We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.

      • I know we’re an Empire Curtis… but I don’t think The Dread Pirate Roberts made his decision out of hubris. My remark was made during a rare fit of outrage and executed with what I thought was obvious snark and sarcasm…

        Not hubris, but I think he did so because someone got to him. The Occupant of the White House has a lot riding on The Unaffordable Care Act and, like last time, The Dread Pirate Roberts went off the reservation and supported it using the most tortured language and logic possible. I think the Occupant – or an agent acting under his direction – bent the full power of the NSA to finding dirt – something, anything – on The Dread Pirate Roberts and leveraged him. Literally, “Either you support this, or we release what we’ve found. You will be disgraced. You’ll have to resign. Your family will be destroyed.” I do not put anything past them, including coercion, extortion, and other means more distasteful and heinous in their efforts to retain power and position.

        They’re maniacal and evil, but not stupid. If they can disappear a bunch of sodomites in Chicago because they might have opened their mouths about the Occupant’s… condition… during a Presidential election, then leveraging a judge is duck soup.

        • MissAnthropy

          They wouldn’t even have to collect dirt on someone like that, they could simply manufacture it. That’s one of the most troubling aspects of their mass data hoovering — with such a mountainous digital dossier on every living soul who could even say what is genuine and what is manufactured?

          “We have a recording of you telling those little boys to get in your car. I mean, that is your voice on the recording, isn’t it Justice Roberts? It certainly sounds like you.”

        • Seriously Malgus, I get tired of everyone making excuses for these people with the simpleton of: “I think someone got to them! It must have been the NSA!”

          Character does not count anymore because of the… NSA?

          • It’s not excuse making for The Dread Pirate Roberts. You’re misrepresenting my position, then using that misrepresentation to attack me. That’s known as a “Straw Man”, Curt.

            The NSA didn’t get to him – I think someone else did, using the NSA as a tool to collect dirt on him. Big difference. To say that the NSA got to him directly implies that they were acting independently, and I do not believe that.

            As far as character, he apparently doesn’t have any. If he did, he wouldn’t have allowed himself to be leveraged. And if he wasn’t leveraged, then it says much about his lack of character with regards to going off the reservation.

            You think I’m defending these assholes? Don’t assume things, Curt. We’re on the same side here. Judicial activism and legislating from the bench makes me physically ill, and what Roberts did was reprehensible. It’s just that to me, there can only be two options: 1) He’s morally bankrupt or 2) Someone influenced his decision via coercion. It could be both, but at least I’m going for the lesser of the two evils here.

            I’ve had people try to influence me via coercion before, and in response, I went for the nuclear option. When given two options, neither of which are acceptable, ignore them both and do what you want. Yeah, I burned down my career in the process, but I did the right thing in the end. I don’t cotton to being threatened much… my response to that is usually “Fuck all y’all. You do what you think you have to do, and I’ll do what I have to, and we’ll see where things shake out.”

          • Think at some point peeps would run out of ways to deny self-ownership, eh? Never seems to happen, though. Imagination’s a powerful thing. I reckon we’ll see how much fantasy there is, when things get tough. I hope my enemies come up with as much fantasy as they can. Me, I’ll stick with reality all the way.

    • SemperFi, 0321

      We’re going to see more of it every day because they have no opposition, well at least nothing that hurts.

      • Hey devil dog…

        See my remarks above re: someone getting to The Dread Pirate Roberts and leveraging him. I don’t think they did what they did because of a lack of opposition. I think it was coercion/extortion. Not provable, but it’s what I think. The current regime is evil, and so nothing is off the table.

        • Malgus,

          Your argument defending SCOTUS is simply utter bullshit ! Those scum have one thing….a fucking agenda. And it ain’t about doing what is right per the Constitution. Those 9 scum refused to hear ONE challenge to soetoro-obama’s usurpation of USC, Art 2, Sec 1, Clause 5.

          SCOTUS is worthless as is the bulk of fedgov/stategov/localgov.

      • There are only two things that those one calls “government” understand. Pain; physical pain and/or financial pain. So far, they have tasted neither. Thus the tyranny grows.

        • “Thus the tyranny grows.”

          Yeah, for the history books. In the present though, we’ve each got only our own lives to decide. I think I’ll decide that in this one, it just stopped.

          There are only attackers, and happily mostly non-attackers.

    there’s only one judge:

  18. Marriage is officially a joke. With the barn door wide open, feel free to marry whatever, whomever, or as many its as you wish.

  19. It’s gunna be fun when pastors start getting arrested and all.

    Newspapers are already banning anti-gay-marriage op eds from being published.

    God forbid you refuse to bake a cake for them.

    • Stewie,

      You fall right in line with the mantra of the left when you use their word, “gay” to describe homosexuals and their faggot behavior. “Gay” is another progressive/marxist/statist/collectivist attack on conservatism, family values and Christian beliefs as they have softened the language to further their left-wing agenda.

      “”Gay” is the same usage of language to further the “progressive’s” view of the FUSA. Witness their language change with “assault” rifle/weapon to put a hateful spin on firearms. When describing Americans who are Negroes they call them “African-Americans”; so less “racist”. But caucasian Americans are “crackers” and “whitey” and that is effing okay with you white folks.

      Here’s another terminology bastardization of the language used to drive the Marxist agenda: “gun violence”. Never see or hear of knife, alcohol-driven, automobile, fist, boot-to-the-head, machete violence, do we ? How about just “violence”. But no ! The left along with the first effing mulatto/usurper/Marxist-in-Chief are driving THEIR agenda with the use of language.

      They’re not gay, happy. They’re homos.

      They’re not African-Americans. They’re Negroes.

      It’s not “gun violence”. It is violence.

      soetoro-obama is not “….The first “black” POTUS. He’s a bastard mulatto.

      Words have meaning.

      Quit playing the left’s game.

      WAKE. THE. HELL. UP !

      “God forbid you refuse to bake a cake for them.”

      The fun one is going to be when someone is coerced, under threat of lawsuit/imprisonment to bake a cake against their will and complies. Well, that’s not the fun part – the fun part will be when the wedding party notices, albeit briefly, that the cake tastes vaguely of bitter almonds.

  20. Looking forward to the South Park episode where Bo & Luke Duke get married and the bakery is conflicted over wanting to bake them a wedding cake but not wanting to have the confederate battle flag on it.

    May you live in interesting times.

    • Even funnier would be two gays insisting that they want to be married in a Mosque and want bacon pizza served at the reception.

  21. Apparently 9 people wearing black robes have over ruled all mighty GOD. It is a sad day for America . The same 9 people literally made the United States Constitution nothing more than toilet paper . Even with it being 5 out of 9, the verdict was the same and they knew before hand exactly what they would do without any regard to Law. So much for State rights or the vote of the majority of the people. So long religious freedom. Next it will be our right to speak and forget anything more because the lunatics are in charge of the asylum.

  22. Chief Justice Roberts’ dissent is a tired recitation of all the well-worn excuses for tyranny and mob rule.

    Procreation, blah blah blah.

    States Rights, blah blah blah

    Tyranny through the ballot box, blah blah blah.

    Yes, this is a win for Rightful Liberty, but don’t get used to it.

    • No it isn’t, you anarchist hoax artist. 2 (3?4?5?) faggots/lezzies poking each other and calling it “legal marriage” has nothing to do with “Rightful Liberty”. It’s anti-civilizational moral anarchy. The purest expression of the current, dominant, Kosher Culture of Death

      • Anarchist? Guilty as charged.

        Hoax artist? Try a mirror.

        Next up, polygamy and polyandry. That should put an end to the thousands of special protections and priveleges for married couples enshrined in law.

        Anything that bleeds this rotten system pleases me.

  23. Jo Anne,

    The USC has been deceased for a LONGGGGGG time. Glad you have finally, belatedly recognized it’s long-standing demise.

    Better late than never.
