According to the Constitution, the function of the Supreme Court is to interpret
the Constitution, not twist it to their wishes. And apply the meaning of the Constitution to court cases. They are not doing that in an impartial way, and don't even care what the people, who provide the power to the Constitution, want or feel.
Article III, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution explicitly states that a Supreme Court Justice that “lacks good behavior” can be impeached. Article III sets the terms of judges, of both the Supreme Court and lower courts: that they serve as long as they are on "good behavior". Well, I think that most of them fail that qualification.
Several sitting justices have violated this regulation. They publically attend political functions, they let their political leanings influence their decisions, and receive “favors” from influential groups and individuals.
During the Bush Administration, Justice Scalia infamously refused to recuse himself from a suit against Vice President Dick Cheney after it was revealed that Scalia and Cheney went on duck hunting trip together during the Cheney case. Scalia also came under fire when he skipped Chief Justice Roberts’ swearing in ceremony to attend a junket to a Ritz-Carlton resort funded by the right-wing Federalist Society (a Koch front).
Justice Scalia (Admitted bigot) attended a closed-door talk to a group of congressmen organized by the House Tea Party Caucus. When the Koch Brothers sent out invitations for a political retreat (and extended fundraising solicitations) in Palm Springs they highlighted past appearances at the gathering of “notable leaders” like Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas.
Justice Thomas helped headline a fundraiser for the National Association of Broadcasters, a lobby group representing News Corp (Murdoch), and other right wing organizations. The event raised hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Justice Thomas failed to report his wife’s income ($686,589) from conservative think tank Heritage Foundation (another Koch front) for at least five years. Thomas accepted more than $42,000 in free gifts just six years. And remember the Anita Hill scandal.
Remember the 2010 State of the Union Address, when President Obama warned that the Supreme Court ruling on corporate campaign contributions, would open the elections up to corporate and even foreign money. Justice Alito mouthed "not true", We all know how wrong he was.
Justice Alito went to a high-profile, high-price fundraiser for the right-wing magazine the American Spectator. The coalition is managed by Heritage Foundation. Justice Alito sent a personal thank you note to a conservative Christian leader who supported his nomination. That recipient James Dobson, of Focus on the Family, is a leading opponent of abortion.
A Supreme Court justice lending a hand to a political fundraising event would be a clear violation of the Code of Conduct for United States Judges.
Justice Roberts a long time friend of George Bush has ignored all of these violations. John Roberts is nothing more than a corporate sell out.
The worst ruling that ANY Supreme Court has ever made is the Citizens United ruling, which has virtually destroyed our democracy. The 2010 election shows just how devastating this ruling was to the country. Elections being decided by the half a billion dollars spent by “Pac’s”.
For the first time in our country’s history we have Supreme Court Judges that think that is legal to sell their votes to the highest bidder (usually the Koch Brothers).
When a Justice can sell his vote we have NO JUSTICE!
