The Supreme Court’s Six Corporate Supremacists Ride Again

The Supreme Court's Six Corporate Supremacists Ride Again

Heeere they come again: The wrecking crew of Alito, Barrett, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, Roberts & Thomas – the six plutocratic judicial supremacists determined to force their personal political biases on all of us.

The latest ploy of this right-wing cabal is to gut the ability of public agencies to issue regulations protecting people from health care rip-offs, consumer price gougers, labor abusers, toxic polluters, and other corporate profiteers. The six-person Republican majority controlling the court is about to decree that when reigning in corporate abuses, public agencies can only take specific regulatory actions that Congress puts into law.

Sounds good in theory, but in real life, Congress has no ability to itemize the ever-changing list of actions needed to stop the abuses. Thus Congress (and "We the People") rely on the diligence and expertise of agencies to make the law work. So, the court's sneaky maneuver is just judicial smoke and mirrors, benefitting… well, who?

"Overregulated small businesses," wailed the court's six laissez-faire ideologues. Indeed, to make their legal ruling, the six had handpicked a case involving a couple of small fishing companies complaining about federal rules to prevent the overfishing of herring. But wait – look who's steering those little fishermen's legal boat: Charles Koch, the ultra-billionaire, anti-regulation extremist! His secretive political operation recruited the herring fishermen to be his corporate pawns and is orchestrating this judicial flimflam.

Moreover, Koch's surreptitious network also funded and orchestrated the political placement of today's corporate majority on the Supreme Court.

Yet, America's corporate media establishment papers over this judicial coup. A recent AP headline, for example, meekly reports that "Conservative Interests Take Aim at Regulations." No – Koch forces are not conservative, they're corporate supremacists. And they're not aiming at "regulations" – but at you and me.
