Just when you think you’ve got the liberals nailed, it seems everybody does a flip flop and you wonder again who or what is conservative, and what really are their motivations. Such again are my conclusions about the Supreme court decision that swabbing the mouth during an arrest for dna is somehow legal – of course, it is fundamentally unconstitutional.
The ruling, which is one more step in the overthrow of the United States constitution, unfortunately, isn’t surprising. How the justices voted is surprising, unless you recall who cast the deciding vote in favor of compulsory Obamacare to begin with. It was Republican Chief Justice John Roberts, appointed by Republican George W. Bush.
KENNEDY, J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which ROBERTS,
C. J., and THOMAS, BREYER, and ALITO, JJ., joined. SCALIA, J., filed a dissenting opinion, in which GINSBURG, SOTOMAYOR, and KAGAN, JJ., joined.
The center of the controversy is the fourth amendment. Judge Scalia in presenting the dissenting opinion very plainly, and totally correctly says:
The Fourth Amendment forbids searching a person for evidence of a crime when there is no basis for believing the person is guilty of the crime or is in possession of incriminating evidence. That prohibition is categorical and without exception; it lies at the very heart of the Fourth Amendment. Whenever this Court has allowed a suspicionless search, it has insisted upon a justifying motive apart from the investigation of crime.
There is no gray area in the case. It isn’t legal to go about collecting evidence irrelevant to the investigation of the crime at hand. It constitutes unreasonable search at face value. The opinion of the court presented by Anthony Kennedy denigrates the concept by asserting it is reasonable as though reasonable has something to do with the amount of trouble involved, completely ignoring the larger conceptual jurisprudence which intends that unreasonable is based on the principle that an individual is entitled to due process, the right to be considered innocent until proven guilty, and the right to basic privacy. It might be easy to rummage through someone’s house for evidence if you are compelled to give the Gestapo the front door key – but without evidence of a crime and tangible suspicion that the homeowner is involved and additional evidence lies within his private domain – it is unreasonable search because it violates another set of rights.
In truth, the Gestapo is the real driving factor behind this, and so many other unconstitutional rulings by our very own Supreme Court. It actually began with dui checkpoints many years ago. They aren’t legal. There is no probable cause that someone out driving on Friday night on a certain road is necessarily suspicious. There may be a higher percentage of drunk drivers at certain times and places, but there never has been a preponderance of evidence that would suggest most drivers at that point are driving drunk. Even then it would still be a violation of individual rights because the individual is guaranteed due process – not the heard of travelers who bear no other relationship to one another other than being on a public road at the same time.
The next step in the process of desensitizing an unwitting public has been to accuse employees of illegal drug use, based on no other suspicion other than it became easy and cheap enough to demand peeing in a cup at the compulsory behest of a tyrannical employer. Next the public school system began accusing kids interested in extracurricular activities of illegal drug use and they too have been subjected to unreasonable search and false criminal accusations without due process or redress of grievance. It isn’t constitutional.
But then the equation begins to become more insidious. Suddenly new technology and so called sex offenders fell in line together and the histrionic public decided it would be a good idea to brand an offender for life, extend probation permanently, keep some individuals in jail past their sentence based on arbitrary criteria and without due process, and then to create public zones where they are not allowed to go – initializing a caste system ostensibly based on genetic profiling. All in spite of the fact that many reports indicate there never has been a higher rate of recidivism amoung such violators – and even though that category of crime makes up a small percentage of illegal activity that afflicts the community.
Then along came Obamacare. Then again maybe the grander scheme has been aimed at Obamacare all along. The proponents of socialized medicine are not without merit. But now some liberal members of the Supreme Court are suddenly in alignment with conservative values and individualism, while the ultra extreme fascists are in line with John Roberts. It’s a classic example. The “conservatives” let out enough rope to actually get what they want, more control over more people through socialized medicine.
That’s the real issue. Not unlike Facebook, who deceitfully Zuckerberged everyone into offering their photographic mug (mugged being the operative word), and then announced after critical mass had been achieved that they just so happen to be using facial recognition technology to unconstitutionally track your activities… everywhere. It’s electronic stalking by definition.
So too the ultra extreme Republican, TEA Party, fascists are advancing a system based on genetic profiling, a kind of racism. They intend to lower their healthcare costs by imposing compulsory healthcare on you and your family. God bless Angelina Jolie if she wants to cut ‘em off to avoid a problem down the road. But would you have made the same decision? In the days ahead, under the Republican ACA, you probably won’t have the option. The mouth swab and genetic profile probably will be done when you get your driver’s license, or when you are born, and the healthcare procedure will be scheduled on your behalf – whether you want it or not. It’s cost effective. If you refuse, the central party will deny your employment and any other benefits.
No one should be the victim of rape. No rape, or any crime, should go unsolved. But the swab testing will one day reach critical mass. It already is a propaganda campaign designed to finally reach that goal. All the other components add up again, and again, again. The genetics mantra is already out of control, it is unconstitutional, it is eugenics, it is ethnic cleansing, and it is genocide.
