In today’s episode, I will spend the entire episode on the glorious and monumental rulings we got from the SCOTUS both today and yesterday. I can only imagine the “leaker” of Justice Alito’s draft, and all those who colluded with that person, are furious over their failed attempt to thwart the third branch of government. In a 6-3 ruling overturning Roe v Wade, the justices said, “The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.”
You may need to read that again if you believe abortions were banned as a result of their ruling. That is not true. Anyone telling you that is lying to you and is not to be trusted. The ruling corrects a horrible ruling from 49 years ago, where the Supreme Court invented language that does not exist anywhere in the Constitution. If you don’t believe me, just pull up the document and do a word search for any of the terms associated with abortion.
What you will find the Constitution is something called the 10th Amendment. It’s a very simple wrap-up to the Bill of Rights. When early Americans, fresh off the fight for independence, read through the early drafts, they were concerned about the power of the Federal government. What would stop it from becoming a monarchy or a dictatorship. What guarantees did they have in preventing another situation from which they just fought? So the 10th Amendment was created to address that very concern. It states quite simply, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
In plain terms, the powers of the Federal government are limited and defined in the Constitution. If you cannot find the power documented within, then it goes back to the states or to the people. That’s the beauty of our Founders! We now have 50 different states that can determine 50 different ways to deal with the abortion question. And because we live in a free country, if you are unhappy with your state’s laws, you have two options: 1) move to one you prefer; or, 2) vote in different representatives. The government cannot infringe on the right to move freely about the country or to vote.
Now we sit back and see if rioting or insurrectionist activities are back to being acceptable. We see if pillaging, looting, hurting and killing are sanctioned in the name of justifiable rage. Or, will logic and reason prevail? I am strongly hoping for the latter, while dreading the likelihood of the former.
