Today, rumors surfaced Justice Anthony Kennedy will announce his retirement, the same day Gorsuch denied the cert pool. Kennedy will stop insulting our intelligence because of warriors like Gorsuch.
The cert pool was established in 1973 during the early days of the Burger Court, in order to efficiently review the near 8,000 petitions received each term. In practice, the petitions are apportioned among the Court’s law clerks, who then circulate a memo to the justices recommending a grant or denial.
The obvious problem here is that this gives the power in these 8000 cases to the law clerks instead of the Justices. It also, in theory, allows 3rd parties to unfairly influence a case through the clerks.
Think about this. The People who were done wrong in lower courts count on the Supreme Court to listen to their arguments which can ultimately ruin their financial, or physical life, which then dictates all black letter law after that. Obama flooded the DOJ with judges planted there to do conservative families and values harm. They harm you by legislating, creating laws from, the bench. Their only job they are elected for is to adjudicate, or apply judgement, from laws. They don’t create the laws.
There was nowhere to go, until now.

Let’s think about this another way. All the SCOTUS judges presiding today have gone along with the program of having law clerks decide and recommend who gets to be heard by the SCOTUS. They have consented to this process by their establishment and acceptance of it. Their silence is their consent. I don’t have any trust in any SCOTUS except for Gorsuch, because the blatant unfair practice of the cert pool debacle.
Freshly excerpted from The Ripon Forum, we understand some of the civil servants have only one objective, and that is to promote radical agendas to overthrow the US.

“Fixing the Civil Service”
by Philip K. Howard
Americans think Washington is broken. That’s why they elected a tough-talking outsider as president. But fixing Washington requires more than one person; it requires a new operating system that allows people to make sensible choices. The parties can disagree about the size of government, but we should all agree that, whatever its scope, government should be responsive and give taxpayers their money’s worth.
What drives Americans crazy, I believe, are the nonstop idiotic dictates. Doctors spend half the day filling out forms no one reads. Factories and nursing homes get fined for inadequate paperwork, not unsafe conditions. It takes a decade to fix a broken bridge. Common sense is nowhere. Each choice must fit a preset mold. There’s little room for balance, or practical exceptions. Recently the University of California, Berkeley was compelled to remove 20,000 lectures from a free, online archive because it didn’t provide captions for the deaf.
Washington is an obsolete machine which churns out rigid, one-size-fits-all regulatory dictates. Day to day, no one in Washington is allowed to make sensible decisions. Fairness is irrelevant. Even relevance is irrelevant. Traffic studies were required for the replacement Tappan Zee Bridge even though the traffic flow is not changing …
Human responsibility is the only alternative to mindless bureaucracy. Law can set goals and provide guiding principles, but common sense is impossible unless people — both officials and citizens — have the freedom to use their judgment at the point of implementation. This is our choice: Either regulate by central planning, with dense dictates, or regulate by letting people take responsibility to achieve results, with clear lines of authority and accountability to deal with disputes …
Responsibility, however, requires a critical element essential to all functioning organizations — accountability. No one will give officials flexibility to use common sense unless they are accountable when they fail or are mean-spirited. Now we get to the link between regulatory reform and civil service reform
Accountability is basically nonexistent for federal civil servants. Job performance is irrelevant. Indeed, more people die on the job than are terminated or demoted.
ACTIVATE: In our own bubbles, we have to press accountability with ourselves, our families, with our employees/employers and all governmental entities.
