Supreme Court

La Suprema Corte degli Stati Uniti funge, come in molti altri stati occidentali, da supremo ed inappellabile censore sulla costituzionalità delle leggi e dei provvedimenti emanati dal Governo Federale.

Fin qui nulla da eccepire.

I problemi hanno iniziato ad emergere da qualche decina di anni, da quando i liberal democratici sono riusciti a far nominare Giudici persone loro fedeli. La Suprema Corte era transitata da organo giuridico ad organo politico non elettivo, fedele esecutore degli ordini di partito.

Per poter conseguire i loro risultati politici, le loro Giustizie Federali avevano anche congegnato una sottile teorica in accordo alla quale le leggi non si applicano, bensì si interpretano: se ogni interpretazione è soggettiva, quella delle Corte Suprema diventa ipso facto sentenza non appellabile, e quindi ineludibile.

Operando in tal fatta, la Suprema Corte per molto tempo ha operato come vero e proprio sommo centro decisionale politico, indipendentemente da maggioranze parlamentari e dal Presidente degli Stati Uniti, instaurando de facto una vera e propria tirannide.

Ai primi del 2017, essendo stato eletto Presidente Mr Trump, si provvide a nominare Sua Giustizia Mr Neil M. Gorsuch al posto di Sua Giustizia Antonin Scalia. Fu nomina travagliata da un ostruzionismo senza precedenti dei senatori democratici, ben consci della posta in gioco.

La nomina di Neil M. Gorsuch riportava dopo anni a 5 : 4 il numero di giudici che avevano la concezione che la legge avesse dovuto essere applicata, non inventata ad libitum.

Gli effetti si videro in breve tempo.

Nella sola ultima settimana la Suprema Corte ha clamorosamente bocciato tre iniziative politiche democratiche, portate avanti dagli immaginifici giudici federali del Nono e del Settimo distretto, tutti liberal democratici di chiara osservanza. Tre sentenze che pongono la parola fine a degli iter giuridici “orripilanti“.

Janus v. State, County, and Municipal Employees (16-1466)

«The State of Illinois’ extraction of agency fees from nonconsenting public-sector employees violates the First Amendment; Abood v. Detroit Bd. of Ed., 431 U. S. 209, which concluded otherwise, is overruled.»

National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra

Trump v. Hawaii

«US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has announced he is retiring at the age of 81»

Sua Giustizia Kennedy è il decano della Suprema Corte, formalmente repubblicano ma nella pratica di ideologia liberal democratica. Molto bizzoso ed imprevedibile nelle sentenze.

Non a caso Sua Giustizia Kennedy era, ed è fino a quando resterà ancora in carica, il

“most powerful man in America”.

Era nei fatti colui che alla fine decideva quale linea politica avesse dovuto essere adottata dagli Stati Uniti di America.

«His retirement will allow President Donald Trump to make a second nomination to the bench, likely giving the court a conservative bent for years to come»

*

I liberal democratici sono precipitati nel panico prima, nel terrore dopo.

Una Suprema Corte formata da una maggioranza di giudici onesti sarà per i liberal un ostacolo che bloccherà in modo definitivo le loro mire di potere.

«He often sided with the liberal justices on social issues, such as the legalization of gay marriage in 2017 and a decision in 1992 that reaffirmed Roe v. Wade.»

«Conservative activists have already announced their intention to use a more conservative court to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion»

Già. La sentenza Roe v. Wade aveva stabilito che i feti semplicemente non sono esseri umani.


Deutsche Welle. 2018-06-27. US Supreme Court Justice Kennedy retiring, giving Trump a second pick

The “most powerful man in America” has announced his retirement at the age of 81. Kennedy is considered the “swing vote” among the justices and his depature will allow Trump to nominate a more conservative judge.

US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has announced he is retiring at the age of 81. Although not the oldest, he is the most senior member of the court, having been nominated by former President Ronald Reagan.

“It has been the greatest honor and privilege to serve our nation in the federal judiciary for 43 years, 30 of those years on the Supreme Court,” Kennedy said in a statement. He added that his decision was motivated by the desire to spend more time with his family.

‘The most powerful man in America’

Kennedy has long been considered the swing vote on the court between the liberal and conservative justices. His retirement will allow President Donald Trump to make a second nomination to the bench, likely giving the court a conservative bent for years to come. Conservative activists have already announced their intention to use a more conservative court to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion.

In response to the news, the president praised Justice Kennedy’s vision and heart.

Speaking in the Oval Office during a meeting with Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, Trump said that when considering the next nomination he would draw from a list of 25 candidates that his campaign collected during his presidential run.

Kennedy’s career on the Supreme Court earned him the nickname “the most powerful man in America,” because he was often the deciding vote between the conservative and liberal wings of the nine-member court. He often sided with the liberal justices on social issues, such as the legalization of gay marriage in 2017 and a decision in 1992 that reaffirmed Roe v. Wade.


The New York Times. 2018-06-27. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy to Retire

WASHINGTON — Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announced on Wednesday that he would retire, setting the stage for a furious fight over the future direction of the Supreme Court.

Justice Kennedy, 81, has long been the decisive vote in many closely divided cases. His retirement gives President Trump the opportunity to fundamentally change the course of the Supreme Court.

A Trump appointee would very likely create a solid five-member conservative majority that could imperil abortion rights and expand gun rights.

Justice Kennedy’s voting record was moderately conservative. He wrote the majority opinion in Citizens United, which allowed unlimited campaign spending by corporations and unions, and he joined the majority in Bush v. Gore, which handed the 2000 presidential election to George W. Bush. He also voted with the court’s conservatives in cases on the Second Amendment and voting rights.

But Justice Kennedy was the court’s leading champion of gay rights, and he joined the court’s liberals in cases on abortion, affirmative action and the death penalty.

In April 2017, Mr. Trump formally appointed Justice Neil M. Gorsuch to succeed Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February 2016, replacing one conservative justice with another and maintaining the basic balance of power on the court.

The replacement of Justice Kennedy with a reliable conservative would be far more consequential and would move the court markedly to the right.

The bitter 14-month battle over Justice Scalia’s seat, during which Republican senators refused to consider President Barack Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick B. Garland, will most likely pale in comparison to the coming fight over Justice Kennedy’s seat.
