The US Supreme Court has ruled 5-4 that juveniles can’t receive the death penalty. For a second, let’s not focus on whether or not the ruling is right or wrong. Check out King … I mean … Judge… Anthony Kennedy’s majority opinion:
“The stark reality is that the United States is the only country in the world that continues to give official sanction to the juvenile death penalty. It is proper that we acknowledge the overwhelming weight of international opinion against the juvenile death penalty. While not controlling our outcome, [it] does provide respected and significant confirmation for our own conclusions.”
Who loosened the wheels on the Hoverounds of these old farts? “International opinion”? “The United States is the only country in the world that gives sanction to…”? What’s the Constitution say? Oh, who cares… the rest of the world doesn’t like our Constitution. This is getting scary.
Joining Kennedy in the globalist circle-jerk were “librarian from hell” Ruth Bader-Ginsburg, Momma’s boy David Souter, stain left on the Court by Bill Clinton alongside the Ginsburg discharge– Stephen Breyer, and a nomination President Ford must have made after suffering a closed head injury from falling down the steps of Air Force One, John Paul Stevens.
Dissenting, since it’s their turn to not have their head up their asses this decade, were Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, and Chief Justice Rehnquist.
Sandra Day O’Connor dissented separately, deciding to include a bit of stupidity in her opinion, but not enough to vote with the “yes” crowd. In other words, she went with the gang to rob First National, but panicked and sped off in the getaway car while everybody else was still in the bank.
O’Connor agreed with the majority that the Court should look for “evolving standards of decency.” In other words, “whatever we feel like doing on any particular day.”
Again, no mention of what the Constitution says. They can hide behind the globalist rhetoric no more. Let’s not fall for the lofty language in these absolutely insane decisions that seem to proclaim the US Constitution as obsolete. You don’t need to have a law background to spot a cow flop.
It’s time for some of these judges to learn that ordinary Americans can apply “evolving standards of decency” as well, by forcing Congress to impeach any Judge who is more concerned Jacques Chirac and Kofi Annan’s perception, than with the Founding Fathers’ intentions.
Judges are not untouchable Kings. It’s time for some of them to learn that there’s a fine line between a Judges robe, and a bath robe. Several members of the Supreme Court are only qualified to sport the latter.
