Justice Roberts comes through again for the left on census citizenship decision
[The Hill] The Supreme Court found Thursday that the Trump administration did not give an adequate reason for adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census, blocking the question for at least the time being.

The move is a surprise win for advocates who opposed the question's addition, arguing it will lead to an inaccurate population count. The administration had argued the question was needed to enforce the Voting Rights Act (VRA).
"Surprise" to some possibly.
Those challenging the question said that asking about citizenship would cause non-citizens or immigrants to skip the question. The Trump administration has maintained in court filings that the data would not be accessible to other parts of the federal government, like immigration officials, but opponents argued that the implied perception surrounding asking about citizenship is enough to cause minority groups to not answer the question, or skip out on the census altogether.
Even though three pickup trucks and 4 Honda's are parked there, no one responded from 121 Woodland Place? Send in ICE to investigate.
The justices sent the issue back to the Commerce Department to provide another explanation.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined with the court's liberal wing in delivering the court's opinion.

Roberts wrote that "the decision to reinstate a citizenship question cannot be adequately explained in terms of DOJ's [the Department of Justice's] request for improved citizenship data to better enforce the VRA."

"Several points, considered together, reveal a significant mismatch between the decision [Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross] made and the rationale he provided."

#1  Roberts wrote that "the decision to reinstate a citizenship question cannot be adequately explained in terms of DOJ's [the Department of Justice's] request for improved citizenship data to better enforce the VRA."

No one else has a clue, perhaps Justice Roberts could tell us (just off the top of his head) how many non-citizens are residing in the US.

Dispense with the law, red tape and bureaucratic formalities. California and Illinois are hemorrhaging democratic voters. New faces are desperately needed.

#2  More concerned about the legacy of the Roberts Court than the Constitution or the fate of our nation. Conservatives have tried to be “balanced “ and the progs have eroded the core principles of our nation for decades. There is an existential threat to America and it’s the Democrat Party and it’s minions. The question, to use a line from the Untouchables, is what are you prepared to do?

#6  The justices sent the issue back to the Commerce Department to provide another explanation.

So now the commerce secretary will present a more acceptable justification, and continue doing so until the supreme court finds the latest justification acceptable. And in the meantime and afterward, President Trump will continue appointing Constitution-oriented conservative judges at all levels, so that going forward fewer of these kinds of cases will head toward the Supreme Court.

Evolution, not revolution.

#7  Roberts is a "conservative" in the same vein as the eGOP. Globalist, elitist, believing the government has the right to control as much of your life as possible.

The only thing that separates the eGOP from the left is the eGOP believes you should have some private property and enjoy some of the fruits of your labor.

Once this is understood Robert's decisions make perfect sense.

#8  Roberts does fit the mold of Deep State Republican nominee. Better than some, worse than others. Fills a necessary niche in the Court but I wish he was not the Chief Justice. Gorsuch looks like a reasonable replacement of Scalia, Kavenaugh an improvement on Kennedy, and Roberts fairly similar to Rehnquist. Overall the Court seems to be pretty much the same politically as it has been for 30 years. That will change depending on who gets to replace Ginsburg, Thomas and Alito - actuarially the next in line.

Tim Ryan: The Democratic Party Has a 'Perception Problem' as 'Coastal, Elitist'
[PJ] In the first 2020 Democratic presidential debate, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) slammed his party for being out of touch with Midwesterners and working people.

"We have a perception problem in the Democrat Party," Ryan admitted. "We have got to change the center of gravity from being coastal, elitist and Ivy League to a party that is on the side of workers. If we don't focus on workers, none of this change will happen."

He insisted that Democrats will not win unless they "address that fundamental problem."

Ryan is correct, but that "perception problem" is rooted in the Democratic Party's increasing radicalism on issues such as abortion, climate change, intersectionality, and more.

Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election arguably for this exact reason, and Democrats are not fixing it.

#3  Nope, ain't gonna happen. Dems would rather eat broken glass than get on the side of the working class.

The working class betrayed them by voting for Trump. They have a long memory and will retaliate harshly the next time they get in power.

#5  "We have got to change the center of gravity from being coastal, elitist and Ivy League to a party that is on the side of workers.

Bingo. However, it’s not just about being on the side of the workers. That sounds so Communist. By saying that, you need be on the side of the workers, already sets up a schism between the Donks and others (in this case the workers). Ryan does not acknowledge or define the ongoing, wider cultural war that sets apart the coastal elites from others. He does not acknowledge that in the quest for diversity and identity politics, the Dems have created a monster.

#6  The Dems mental condition prevents them from seeing that they constantly insult people like programmers, accounting people, legal clerks, etc. by implying that they don't work.

The idea that work only counts when it's nasty, dirty blue collar work is just so Mid 1800s Marx and those white collar churls are oppressors.

Crime & punishment
[DAWN] TORTURE by law-enforcement agencies is so endemic it is often accepted as ’police culture’. We only have to look at the overwhelming news reports and academic research for proof. And the reason it is so endemic is that there is little to no penalty or accountability against LEAs, and hence no effort to change this culture.

Today is International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. But Pak victims have little hope of receiving any form of support from the judiciary, executive or legislation.

The case of Sajid Masih is a telling ‐ and appalling ‐ example of broken governance. Sajid’s cousin was accused of blasphemy
...the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence to a deity, or sacred objects, or toward something considered sacred or inviolable. Some religions consider it to be a crime. In Pakistain you can commit blasphemy by looking cross-eyed at a Koran...
, due to which he was also roped in. They were both arrested and interrogated by FIA officials, during which they were reportedly beaten and abused. By his account, Sajid was allegedly ordered to rape his cousin. He refused. The officials shouted at him to do as he was told. He couldn’t, and jumped out of a fourth-floor window to escape the humiliation. The fall could have killed him. But he survived, albeit with multiple injuries, to tell his harrowing story.

#1  So the problem is the laws in Pak, not torture itself. Blasphemy is not a 21st century crime, for example. Nor is a clueless cleric's opinion considered expert witness in modern courts. But that's the 'Stain for you.

Torture is the fastest, easiest way to get shit done, period. It's also reforming and educational. The only question for morality is , who's allowed to do it and for what.
Posted by: Dron66046 || 06/27/2019 10:05 Comments || Top||

#2  The problem is that so often torture is applied by the ethically impaired to those not guilty of the crime of which they are accused, resulting in faulty information and false confessions just to make the pain stop. OldSpook used to talk about tryptophan deprivation, although that takes longer. Somewhere around 2010 in the archives, I think.
Posted by: trailing wife || 06/27/2019 15:58 Comments || Top||

#3  Tryptophan deprivation. Probably to deny production of serotonin. Induce hunger and anxiety ? But it should also lead to bouts of intense rage and impairment of the limbic system, also memory.

Naah... good ol' acid, sulfazine and pain are fine. Besides it keeps the troops with a bad streak occupied and functional. Indian intelligence was taught this madness by the ruskies, if you can believe it. With the Israelis we developed more nuanced approaches, including contorting postures for long periods, ear-splitting music, temperatures - things that leave no trace for those pesky UN types. Later we developed our own techniques, featuring MDA, induced hypnagogia, suggestion, etc. Although the latter is the opposite of torture. It's more of a kind of 'assisted conversion'.

I agree in that it's a question of who's doing it and why. Ruling it out is good, but every case deserves a subjective consideration. As a first policy of course it's bad. If we weren't in the middle of a war, and if there were fewer assholes to process... we'd just be better humans.

#4  The case of Sajid Masih

I just noticed. Masih is sometimes used as an urdu vocalization for Massey, or mostly derived from Masihi, meaning Christian.

This is a tale of persecution.

The Call For Reparations Isn't About Justice, It's About Power
[The Federalist] What do we mean by reparations? Writing recently in the Washington Post, Sheryll Cashin, a law professor at Georgetown University, argues that "reparations should repair what white supremacy still breaks. Atoning for the legacy of chattel slavery is simply not enough."

That is, reparations must be broad enough to encompass the many crimes and injustices perpetrated against black Americans throughout our history, from slavery to Jim Crow to mass incarceration. The effects of these injustices, says Cashin, are "direct and measurable" among slavery’s descendants: wage gaps, educational disparities, homeownership and property values, incarceration rates, health outcomes.

She is of course right. There is no question that black Americans have suffered greatly, not just from the memory of slavery but from its long legacy of rampant discrimination and racist policies.

It was this history that Ta-Nehisi Coates invoked in testimony last week before a House subcommittee considering a bill to create a commission to study reparations. Responding to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s comment that reparations are not a good idea because no one responsible for slavery is alive today, Coates reeled off a list of racial injustices that were perpetrated in McConnell’s lifetime.

Because McConnell was born in 1942, there is plenty of injustice to point to, and Coates, who has built a successful career on elegantly expressing outrage over such injustice, made the most of it:
We grant that Mr. McConnell was not alive for Appomattox. But he was alive for the electrocution of George Stinney. He was alive for the blinding of Isaac Woodard. He was alive to witness kleptocracy in his native Alabama and a regime premised on electoral theft. Majority Leader McConnell cited civil-rights legislation yesterday, as well he should, because he was alive to witness the harassment, jailing, and betrayal of those responsible for that legislation by a government sworn to protect them. He was alive for the redlining of Chicago and the looting of black homeowners of some $4 billion. Victims of that plunder are very much alive today. I am sure they’d love a word with the majority leader.

This is powerful stuff. The history of America, like the history of all the world, is replete with wickedness and injustice, crimes perpetrated by the powerful against the weak. Slavery and racial discrimination are America’s awful inheritance, which cannot be gainsaid.

#1  I think what you need is a good ol' civil war to decide things once and for all.

They simply won't be satisfied until white Americans are in cages, huddled in homes under attack, knifed and raped and burnt. People are just not taking this seriously enough.

#2  No, it should rightfully be the Democrat Party paying reparations - after all, they were the party of slavery, rebellion, the KKK, Jim Crow, and segregation. My own modest proposal, here.

#8  Everyone must read this interview of this guilt-ridden, snowflake motherf###er. He thinks that privilege is part of his skin, and a quiet kind of racism is implicit in his being born at all.

I'm overwhelmingly white ! Boo Hoo Hoo...

As impossible to believe as it may be, it's the indoctrination for white kids in schools in America, up to college. As Herb says (Yupp!) it's all about 'turning the tables' on the white man and Obama was only their first conspicuous step. I call it the Wakanda Project. Their model is exactly South Africa. It's a slow massacre in planning. The democrat deep state thinks they can control the blacks as they always have. Those were their thoughts about the taliban too, and look where that went.

Gen Z teenagers are leaving sex until later, and it could mean they lead healthier lives
[News24] The teenage years are a time for experimenting and for pushing boundaries ‐ particularly when it comes to intimate relationships. Such experimentation is a natural part of growing up. But there are potential risks, too ‐ particularly if these early experiences aren’t positive ones. That’s why my colleagues and I investigated what kinds of intimate behaviour 14 year olds engage in, and how this insight can help to ensure young people are well prepared for healthy and happy adult relationships.

We know teenagers experiment with intimacy, often moving "up" the scale from hand-holding or kissing to more explicitly sexual activity. But we also know teenage pregnancy numbers have been dropping in recent years. And our new findings suggest that fewer young teenagers are actually having sexual intercourse than previously thought.

Studies have shown that 30% of those born in the 1980s and 1990s had sex before the age of 16. Among those born in the early 1990s, 18% had done so by age 15. But our new evidence, based on those aged 14, born during or just after the year 2000, indicates that there has been a decrease in the most intimate types of sexual behaviours among this latest cohort ‐ Generation Z.
