The Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration from enforcing a testing mandate for large employers, dealing a blow to a key element of the White House’s plan to address the pandemic as coronavirus cases resulting from the Omicron variant are on the rise.
Let us look at how each supreme court justice was put in office to see if there are any issues of apparent bias. A scoring method will be used to reveal to the reader apparent hidden issues that a Supreme Court member might bring to his or her deliberations and rulings.
Please note that one factor shown below is Catholic. The intent here is to only show the number of Catholic Supreme Court justices beyond what is normal for the US population and does that then signify any bias.
- Chief Justice John Roberts. (-3 score)
- Justice Clarence Thomas. (-3 score)
- Justice Stephen Breyer. (No negatives)
- Democrat appointment
- Justice Samuel Alito. (-3 score)
- Justice Sonia Sotomayor. (-1 +1 = even score)
- One of two women. (+1)
- Catholic. (-1)
- Democrat appointment.
- Justice Elena Kagan. (No negatives)
- Democrat appointment
- Justice Neil Gorsuch. (-2.5 score)
- Justice Brett Kavanaugh. (-3.5 score)
- Justice Amy Coney Barrett (+1-2-.5= score -2.5)
Overall Fairness, Or Not, Score for the Supreme Court Justices: -17.5 negative issues appears to reveal alleged bias.
Only two women are currently serving in the Supreme Court. The number of women in the United States according to the US Census is 50.8%. Ideally, half the US Supreme Court justices should be women. Each women holding office is given one positive point.
Because there are so many Catholics sitting as judges it stands that this might be a problem.
This is the reason we give this a negative value of -1.
Party Appointment Bias
The Republican Party, it can be said, stacked the court with judges that should aid the Republican Party agenda.
“… conservative business leaders and reactionary billionaires who’ve focused not just on winning elections, but on rewriting the rules of our economy and our democracy. The growing power of these forces has encouraged the GOP to embrace a retrograde economic program”
This is the reason we give being appointed by the Republican Party a negative vote, -1.
Trump Appointment is a consideration.
President Donald Trump was one of the worst presidents in the history of the United States with a score of 312 out of 897 (Abraham Lincoln having best score). It might/should thus follow that his Supreme Court appointments were made for questionable reasons.
It appears that the United States Supreme Court is possibly flawed because members may not represent the whole country but probably, large business owners, the plutocracy class. A very common fear expressed in news, opinion, research, history and web sites is that the United States is now being controlled by a plutocracy. This may help explain why President Biden’s attempt to fight the massive spread of the Covid and Omicron virus was halted by the Supreme Court members for their alleged special interest motivations.
“The Federalist Society has for years been singularly focussed on building a farm team of judicial nominees who subscribe to a philosophy that is hostile to the advancement of social and economic progress in the country. Behind the scenes, during Republican Administrations, they are very engaged in identifying and recruiting for judges candidates who are ultra-conservatives—who are opposed to our rights and liberties across the board, whether it’s women, the environment, consumer protections, worker protections.”
“You now have a five-justice majority on the Supreme Court, all of whom are [connected to] the Federalist Society: Chief Justice John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas — who has been called by Federalist Society members the closest thing to a pure Federalist Society judge — and, of course, Trump’s appointments, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.”
“One of the greatest cons of the 21st century was the idea, invented whole cloth by the producers of The Apprentice, that Donald Trump was a genius businessman. Indeed, his time in the White House revealed that not only was he neither a genius businessman nor a genius period, but he was, in fact, in layman’s terms, a big fuckin’ moron.”
