More Evidence of the Need For a 28th Amendment

By Rich Kozlovich

Jim Hoft on September 29, 2022 posted the article U.S. Supreme Court Agrees to Hear Challenge Against New York’s Vaccine Mandate, saying:

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case about vaccine requirements in New York City that was once denied by liberal US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. This could lead to a huge ruling about how much power state and local governments have, the Conservative Brief reported. Last month, Sotomayor denied a request by New York City police detective Anthony Marciano to overturn the city’s unconstitutional mandate that all municipal workers get the Covid-19 jab.  Sotomayor denied Officer Anthony Marciano’s emergency request without comment, and she did not ask the city to file a brief in response.  Marciano resubmitted the same petition to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas..

Looks like Sotomayor got overruled - and quite rightly so! who styled herself as a "wise Latina", which would have drawn outrage from the left if any white man or woman and the nerve to style themself as so wise they deserved to be on the Supreme Court, and has got to be running high on the list of SCOTUS jurists that are either dumb, incompetent, corrupt or blatantly partisan, or all four.


But she wouldn't appear anywhere on a list of "wise" jurists.   Her inadequacy may only be exceeded by Ketanji Brown Jackson, who when she was a SCOTUS candidate the Senate questioned her qualifications the left became outraged.  Outraged the Senate had the temerity to question her?  Now they didn't personally attack her as the Democrats did to Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, and the best jurist to have been seated on the Court in my lifetime, Clearance Thomas, they merely questioned the qualifications of a potential jurist.  A potential jurist who couldn't define what a woman is.  Imagine that!

The fact is these nitwits are part the reason people have lost respect for the court. 

Of the three branches of the U.S. federal government, the Supreme Court has traditionally received the most respect. And while all three branches have lost some level of confidence among the American public in recent years, it is the Supreme Court that has faced the most precipitous decline, and now find themselves in rare territory: defending their own legitimacy.

According to Gallup polling, 25% percent of U.S. adults in 2022 say they have "a great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in SCOTUS, down from 36% a year ago and five percentage points lower than the previous record low recorded in 2014. Many court-watchers cite a recent spate of controversial decisions as contributing to the drop.
Is this lack of integrity and competence anything new for SCOTUS?  No, as the author points out in the 19th century it was understood that court appointees were blatantly partisan, but he also points out court never had the power to alter the social structure of America then as it does now, and it's time to end this unconstitutional judicial tyranny with term limits.  It's time for a 28th Amendment.
