Judiciary Must Not Legislate: Pass An Abortion Law In The USA. Roe v Wade Was A Masquerade

June 24, 2022

It is not for the judiciary to legislate. The judiciary is in charge of implementing and adjudicating the laws. Laws are passed by the legislature (supposedly representing “We The People”).

In the US, the Supreme Court stepped in, and nine senior men with a mostly Caucasian appearance, 50 years ago, passed a judicial opinion masquerading as a sort of law enabling some sorts of abortions. 

This is not how  representative democracy with separation of three powers is supposed to work. This violation of basic constitutionality set a dangerous precedent where the Supreme Court displaced Congress to write sort-of-laws. 

Since then, one can see the mood of replacing laws voted, or not voted, by legislators being created, or overruled by the judiciary in other domains, for example guns… With disastrous effect; it should not be SCOTUS which decides what sot of guns people can carry. 

Far from promoting democracy, legislating through diktats of the judiciary is not just unconstitutional, it’s demeaning, infuriating, it makes people turn away from the law and it creates a general fascist mood, as We The People gets in the habits to have a committee of nine decided what is legal, or not… Instead of having more than 500 representatives decide. 

Worldwide, more than 50 representative democracies have passed laws on abortions, using a standard vote in the Parliament. Those laws are remarkably similar. One could call them collectively, the abortion law: abortion at will, no question asked until 12 to 14 weeks, after that, medical opinions, and restrictions, steer abortions (including by considering the psychological state of the mother). The idea being that, once the fetus is viable, it’s not the private property of the carrier of said yet-to-be-born baby, 

The US must do the same on a national level… And there will be no problem. In these 50+ democracies which passed the abortion law, abortion is not controversial (anymore). 

One of the reasons that the Judiciary must not legislate is that it is very bad at it (having others things to do, and other inclinations).

In its abortion decision, of 1972, SCOTUS confused unanimously… life and privacy. Certainly the privacy of someone stops where the life of someone else starts.  Just as the motion of one’s fist must stop where someone else’s nose starts…

Romans used to have the right to kill their child, no question asked. Now, thoughtful laws prevent them to do so. That’s progress. All culturally advanced countries have an abortion law (details do not vary much among US peers). Why can’t the US pass one? Too busy being tribal?

Supreme Court Of US (“SCOTUS”) in 1972. Those 9 mostly white oldish men decided that abortion was a right to privacy, and exceptionally stupid decision… Which led millions into error regrading human life: somebody’s life is not somebody’s else, “right to privacy”.

Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., writing for the six SCOTUS judges of the majority, said that a Mississipi law was OK, and that Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the 1992 decision that affirmed Roe’s core holding, should be overruled.

Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Justice Alito wrote. “Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division. It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

Short Circuiting Brains: How Plutocrats Control With Fake Issues. Example: Late Term Abortions

Short Circuiting Brains With Blind passions: One Way To Control Minds. make them All Enraged About Abortion, One Way and Its Opposite, They Won’t Be Interested by Anything Else. 

How come plutocrats and their servants dominate the Democratic Party? How did the Plutos achieve this? 

Whenever we look in the USA we see plutocratic families in command. Take Illinois: the governor is from a top plutocratic family, hyper influential under Obama (an heiress of one of the wealthiest families was given control of US commerce). He is a “Democrat” too, this goes without saying. Jay Robert “J. B.” Pritzker (born January 19, 1965) is an American businessman, “philanthropist” (he loves (philo) people (anthropos) as crocs do), and politician (self-) serving as the 43rd Governor of Illinois. He is a private business owner based in Chicago and a managing partner and co-founder of the Pritzker Group, and a member of the Pritzker family which owns the Hyatt hotel chain. He has an estimated personal net worth of $3.4 billion.

Pritzker was the Democratic nominee for governor of Illinois in the 2018 gubernatorial election. Another Pritzker was in the Obama administration. after making Obama all he could be:

Obama and Democrat elite support plutocratic Pritzkers, plutocratic Pritzkers support Obama and Democrat elite. It’s a virtuous circle of hell.

Here is the Los Angeles Times: How eight elite San Francisco families funded Gavin Newsom’s political ascent (By Seema Mehta, Ryan Menezes And Maloy Moore; Sept. 7, 2018).

Gavin Newsom wasn’t born rich, but he was born connected — and those alliances have paid handsome dividends throughout his career.

A coterie of San Francisco’s wealthiest families has backed him at every step of his political rise [which led to his election as governor of California].

San Francisco society’s “first families” — whose names grace museum galleries, charity ball invitations and hospital wards — settled on Newsom, 50, as their favored candidate two decades ago, said Willie Brown, former state Assembly speaker and former mayor of the city.

“He came from their world, and that’s why they embraced him without hesitancy and over and above everybody else,” said Brown, who is a mentor to Newsom. “They didn’t need to interview him. They knew what he stood for.”

A Times review of campaign finance records identified eight of San Francisco’s best-known families as being among Newsom’s most loyal and long-term contributors. Among those patrons are the Gettys, the Pritzkers and the Fishers, whose families made their respective fortunes in oil, hotels and fashion. They first backed him when he was a restaurateur and winery owner running for a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1998, and have continued their support through the governor’s race.

They are not Newsom’s largest donors: The families in total have given about $2 million of the $61 million that donors have contributed to his campaigns and independent committees backing those bids. But they gave while he was a relative unknown, providing crucial support to a political newcomer in the years before his campaign accounts piled high with cash from labor unions, Hollywood honchos, tech billionaires and donors up and down the state.”

Newsom just lent land inches from and between freeways, for the homeless, where they will be able to set their tarps in superior squalor, terrorizing the cheap areas of California some more, far from the cities for multi millionaires, and billonaires. This, instead of providing with real (let alone decent) housing

So one of my faithful commenters, Gloucon X thinks I am “cherry picking” on one side because I mentioned the big cherries of exploding thermonuclear warheads activated automatically (that’s called LOW, Launch On Warning, and is the central idea of the famous movie “TERMINATOR”). The point being that Nancy Pelosi, NOT Trump, is the top legislator in the USA. As I reminded Trump recently (direct message), and he reiterated, Trump is the top enforcement officer in the USA, a function inherited from Roman Consuls through Saint Louis (say). Pelosi is more like the top Tribune of the People. And she, herself a plutocrat with an immense fortune, in the many hundreds of millions of dollars, if not more, is, deliberately, making a very bad job at it. 

How do all these immensely wealthy people come to control all politicians’ jobs?

Sorry guys, it’s not just shameful, it’s an atrocity

CREATING A FAKE PROBLEM TO CREATE A FAKE ENMITY: CONSIDER ABORTION

Take abortion, indeed. In the USA, so-called “Late Term Abortion” are, in Federal theory, possible: a woman can come, and ask a doctor to kill an eight and half month completely viable baby. That’s unlawful in all other countries. In France, for example, abortions are allowed up to four months, no question asked. Beyond five months, an abortion is possible only if the life of mother is endangered or the foetus is not viable. Eight month abortion is of course monstrous, and should be illegal.

However, in the USA if you say this, a large part of the so-called left becomes hysterical, and accuse you of being a partisan of Satan, namely the Evangelicals. OK, they don’t phrase it this way, they would call you a fanatical right wing Christian who hates women. 

The plutocrats, through the media they control, then make it so that a total polarization is achieved: if you are against later term abortions, you are against women. Or a right wing Christian praying for Trump non stop. All professional Democrat politicians embrace therefore killing eight month old baby… a disgusting task best left to really disgusting people, namely, plutocrats and their servants.

The passions connected to this are extreme; it’s a matter of baby killers (true, sometimes) against women enslavers, we are told. (I know a “doctor” specializing in Later term Abortions, that’s all she does: she is deeply unhappy with her life, to say the least… She always goes around, haunted, as if she had just killed hundreds of innocents… because she did… Whereas me i am all bouncy and happy because the fatwa against me is all about me being bouncy and happy… I killed no one…)

While the debate rages on the moral superiority of killing eight month old babies goes on and on, deeper issues are faithfully ignored, as intended. A fake problem has been created, which enables us to determine the color of your skin: are you red, or are you blue?

Most of US politics which passionate people have to do with these fake problems… construed to satisfy that old US pastime: determining skin color.

If I say Pelosi, head legislator of the USA, is doing a poor job, people tell me I have got to be pro-evangelical, and on “Trump side”: That’s logic for short circuiting brains. In truth, I am deeply anti-Christian… or, let me rephrase that, I want to cut Christ and the Bible out of Christianism, and all the other stupidities, to keep only the love… only if it’s well defended.

Trump is a long term Democrat who took over the Republican Party, in the name of We The People. This infuriated old style Republicans who were fully on board with old style Democrats to use globalization for plutocratization. 

Trump famously used to be against Reagan about globalization. Trump even started a presidential run in the 1980s to emphasize the point. The 1980s were those strange times when “Democrats” used to implement Reagan’s extreme right wing agenda, including oligarchization. This turn towards social and economic elitism had long been in the works: the Harriman Brothers were crucial to both Stalin and Hitler. Their father had been the top railroad magnate of the world. After one of them became the Czar of Lend-Lease to the USSR, the two Harriman Brothers became the plotting core of the Democratic Party. One of them in the plush role of US ambassador to Paris, for decades. Such plutocrats and their descendants always were on the side of plutocratization. After Nixon mass-plutocratized the healthcare system by creating HMOs, it became easier. In California, governor Reagan had imposed tuition on public universities.

In the 1980s and 1990s, “Democrats” a la Tip O’Neill, Clinton, Biden, etc, implemented a program of “privatization” dictated to them by international finance… France, Britain, did the same. The result was massive de-industrialization, of why most health care supplies are now made in China (there is a general scrambling to invert this, as it turns out half of antibiotics are made in China; antibiotics and antivirals are used against COVID 19 and its complications)

I have always been a registered Dem, and I will vote Sanders Tuesday. I decided not to vote Gabbard because of the way the California ballot works (below 15% doesn’t count…), and in light of “superdelegates”. I voted Sanders in the past… 

I am thoroughly opposed to some of the ideas Sanders is promoting to get support from the left fringe of the Democratic party. For example on immigration: I am for open borders in Europe, or throughout the West, from New Zealand to Slovenia, but I am not for massive immigration from countries of low socio-economic level… Although I am for accepting great numbers of political refugees (as long as they are fully compatible with 1789 secular law; no importation of Sharia, please). 

Removing private healthcare insurance is silly: European countries such as France or Switzerland have still kept private health insurance. The national system in France covers only basic health care, including of the most expensive sort (say grafting arms, which was pioneered there, successfully, long ago)…

After saying all these objections, I overrule them because Sanders will probably pivot, and cutting down on plutocracy, freer education, and universal health care are more important. Among others. Seriating and distinguishing is what intelligence does. Intelligence does not consist into following a party.

P/S: When I see Obama staying at $8,000 a night hotels in French Polynesia (“Le Brando”), I am rather sad… That’s post presidency…
 
(Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch announced in 2017 it obtained travel records from the Secret Service in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, bringing the known total of travel expenses for former President Barack Obama and his family to $105,662,975.27. The latest records show President Trump’s travel expenses total slightly over $4 million.
